THAT REAGAN ALZHEIMER’S MOVIE: THE REAL CULPRITS

My wife put on NBC’s Today Show this morning, and there was a report about the fact that will ferrell had backed out of a movie about Ronald Reagan and Alzheimer’s disease.

The premise (unmentioned in NBC’s report) was that Reagan developed Alzheimers in his second term of office (a historical fraud) and an intern was assigned to get him through it by convincing Reagan that he wasn’t really President, he was just filming a movie (a little like “My Favorite Year”, in which a jerky little gofer was assigned to keep a has-been movie star sober for the days before he would be on a live TV show).

Hysterically funny material, wouldn’t you say?

The NBC report told us that ferrell backed out after an outcry from “conservatives and members of the Reagan family”.

That’s it, folks.   Those damn conservatives, and the family of a conservative president, were the only obstacles to our being treated to this potential comic masterpiece.

I wonder if anyone at NBC News considered the possibility – remote though it might have seemed to them – that people other than political and familial conservatives would have a problem with this movie.

Did they consider asking if anyone on their staff knew of an Alzheimer’s sufferer, maybe had one in the family, and how that person felt about it.  Or did they just assume he/she would be laughing too hard about the idea of ridiculing someone with Alzheimer’s disease to answer the question?

There is no shortage of examples demonstrating how stunted, how biased, how obtuse media can be.  This is one of them.

I only wish it were the last.

  • Ann Mucho is my name; if anyone has any reason to testify today for being alive I am the one. Sometimes ago, I was very ill initially I was forgetting anything I was told in just a jiffy, later on it was as if my memory was blank I could not understand anything at all so I was taken to a physician he did his diagnoses and said something is wrong with my brain. So he administered to me some medications which I used for some time, and as I continue to use the medication my doctor gave me my condition became worse except for the anxiety medicine which helped me but a little. It came to a stage that I could no longer clean up myself after using the rest room my doctor was called upon again, and he said my system is beginning to short time, that I am going to die. In the third week I was full diagnosed of having Alzheimer’s disease. And my doctor says there is no cure for it, I was given a private nurse who comes to take care of me right in my house a week after I was fully diagnosed of Alzheimer’s disease my system became deteriorated that I could not even know what is happening around me anymore. Two weeks after, my daughter came to visit me, and said he heard of a herbal doctor by the name Doctor Uwadia Amenifo. She said so many people are talking about this doctor that he have cured them of so many kind of ailment with his herbal medicine, and she said we should give this doctor a try. So she contacted the doctor on his email, explained my condition to him. Doctor Uwadia Amenifo told my daughter that he has cured Alzheimer’s disease before and that he will surly cure me. So he said all he have to say, and after which all arrangement was made with my daughter he prepared the herbal mixture, and sent it to me in USA so I was taking the herbal mixture just according to his prescription I took it for the first 7 days and I found out that I was a gradually beginning to know happenings around me, and after that 7th day as I continued to take it I became better, better and better, and today I am happy to say I AM TOTALLY CURED OF ALZHEMIER’S DISEASE Doctor Uwadia Ameifo’s herbal mixture cured me of my Alzheimer’s disease . Before the cure, he ask my daughter to promise him that after he cures me I tell the word about him. So after I was cured I called and informed him, and he was very happy for me and here I am fulfilling the promise my daughter made to him. Brothers and sisters, a helper has come to save Americans from the death sentence of Alzheimer’s disease. Please if you are there suffering from this disease, or you know any one suffering from it, please quickly contact Doctor uwadia Amenifo now on his email (doctoruwadiaamenifo@gmail.com), and his phone number is +2349052015874. God sent him to us.

    • NOTE TO READERS: I am allowing the post about a cure for alzheimers to stay, because I do not believe in censorship. But please be advised that a) I consider it an ad, and b) when I googled Uwadia Amenifo I found promotional material that this doctor, assuming he actually exists, cures a variety of conditions that, somehow, the rest of medical science does not. I can’t prove that this is an obvious scam, but I assume it.
