There is dumb, there is dumber, and then there is a just a jackass. The Nevada politician who thinks the solution for rape is for “hot little girls” to carry automatic weapons (her words, truly) is at it again spreading her pearls of “wisdom” .
I did not think any female politician could be dumber and more offensive than Chrisitine O’Donnell and Sarah Palin, but taaaa taaaa daaa (or Taa- d’oh) here she is: Michele Fiore District 4 Assembleywoman from Nevada. Originally from Brooklyn she is a tried and true NUT JOB.
Why? Why am I writing about her or politics at all on a breast cancer blog? Because this woman has announced that cancer, like breast cancer is a fungus….and oh yeah, we can cure it with saltwater or baking soda.
I kid you not. This woman is cuckoo for cocoa puffs, yet there she sits in public elected office.
If this is the future of American politics, we all should be terrified. I don’t know how people like this get elected to public office but I do know that my breast cancer wasn’t caused by a freaking fungus. People like this are not fit to serve, and by the way, in case any of her supporters are reading, I am a registered Republican. This woman is not a Republican she’s an aberration of I’m not sure quite what.
If you are a cancer or breast cancer survivor or someone undergoing treatment for cancer reading this post and think what she has said is as horrible as I do you can find Michele Fiore on Facebook and on Twitter under the handle @votefiore. She has a website www.votefiore.com and via her Nevada legislator web page.
She deserves no less than to be inundated with comments for cancer survivor sand cancer patients everywhere. But because she is a total kook try your best to be polite.
We canNOT as Americans keep allowing people like this to be elected to public office. Period. It does NOT matter what political persuasion they are they are undermining the fabric the pins our country together politically and in other ways.
Apparently in addition to everything else we must look at when we are electing people to public office, we need to see what their stand is on cancer. And with her, pick a topic, she is no stranger to welcome to Bizarreville controversy. (There was that million dollar issue at the end of 2014.)
There are lobbyists in this country for everything, so are there Breast Cancer Lobbyists? #BoobPAC ? Ladies, it’s time to #VoteWithYourBreasts and politicians like Michele Fiori should not be reelected. Or elected in the first place.
I apologize for the rant it’s just that when I saw this simply couldn’t stand it, or keep my mouth shut. We have to speak up every time one of these creatures surfaces. Otherwise, as we all know, we pay for it somehow when we’re trying to get treatment or trying to get treatment paid for.
Below are links and excerpts from two articles about this so you see:
Washington Post: To Your Health
A lawmaker who believes saltwater and baking soda can cure cancer
Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore said recently that she will propose a “Right to Try” bill in her state. But it’s not the bill itself that gained national attention. Instead, it was Fiore’s statement that she believes cancer is “a fungus” that can be cured by “flushing, let’s say, saltwater, sodium carbonate” through the body.
Just to be clear, right up front: Cancer is not a fungus. It is the uncontrolled division of abnormal human cells within the body. Saltwater cannot cure cancer.
GOP lawmaker sees cancer as a ‘fungus’
…..the latest from Nevada Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R), who has a proposal to change existing rules on end-of-life care.
Fiore, who operates a home health care business that sometimes passes payroll taxes onto the IRS, said she knew of friends who left the country to find end-of-life treatments that are not FDA-approved. And then the payoff:
“If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus,” she began, citing a widely debunked theory that the American Cancer Society warns about, ”and we can put a pic line into your body and we’re flushing with, say, salt water, sodium cardonate [I think she means bicarbonate], through that line and flushing out the fungus. These are some procedures that are not FDA-approved in America that are very inexpensive, cost-effective.”
ick….the notion of cancer being a fungus that can be flushed out w. salt water and baking soda is creepy. Imagine if it were true…no more chemo, radiation, surgeries etc… just salt and soda infusions on the balcony at Noon. Funeral at six. What a doofus magee.
