Is this fair? You be the judge. A drug that has been selling abroad for almost a decade for less than $50 a bottle, is now being sold in the U.S. for a total price of $$89,000 a year.

This is disconcerting indeed. The link below relates to a reference/citation of a speech he made in the Vatican on 2014, where he quotes Julius Evola,

It is disconcerting that Steve Bannon's ideology now has the ears of President Trump. Here is a very interesting article written by Jason Horowitz for the The New York Times, titled "Steve Bannon Cited Italian Thinker Who Inspired Fascist", February 10, 2017 (Europe Section). The article states that Bannon quoted Julie Evola. ..."except perhaps by scholars and followers of the deeply taboo, Nazi-affiliated thinker, Julius Evola."

Excerpts from the article.

"ROME — Those trying to divine the roots of Stephen K. Bannon’s dark and at times apocalyptic worldview have repeatedly combed over a speech that Mr. Bannon, President Trump’s ideological guru, made in 2014 to a Vatican conference, where he expounded on Islam, populism and capitalism.

But for all the examination of those remarks, a passing reference by Mr. Bannon to an esoteric Italian philosopher has gone little noticed, except perhaps by scholars and followers of the deeply taboo, Nazi-affiliated thinker, Julius Evola.

“The fact that Bannon even knows Evola is significant,” said Mark Sedgwick, a leading scholar of Traditionalists at Aarhus University in Denmark.

Evola, who died in 1974, wrote on everything from Eastern religions to the metaphysics of sex to alchemy. But he is best known as a leading proponent of Traditionalism, a worldview popular in far-right and alternative religious circles that believes progress and equality are poisonous illusions.

Evola became a darling of Italian Fascists, and Italy’s post-Fascist terrorists of the 1960s and 1970s looked to him as a spiritual and intellectual godfather.

They called themselves Children of the Sun after Evola’s vision of a bourgeoisie-smashing new order that he called the Solar Civilization. Today, the Greek neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn includes his works on its suggested reading list, and the leader of Jobbik, the Hungarian nationalist party, admires Evola and wrote an introduction to his works.

More important for the current American administration, Evola also caught on in the United States with leaders of the alt-right movement, which Mr. Bannon nurtured as the head of Breitbart News and then helped harness for Mr. Trump.

“Julius Evola is one of the most fascinating men of the 20th century,” said Richard Spencer, the white nationalist leader who is a top figure in the alt-right movement, which has attracted white supremacists, racists and anti-immigrant elements."...

It is disgusting to see that Bannon would even quote Julius Evola, a man who inspired Mussolini's fascism that resulted in passing laws against the Jews and other minorities.

My dog Boomer has been scooching lately and biting himself right on the top of his tail. I hav taken him to the vet for this issue. They have expressed his anal glands several times and he is also taking an oral medication for itching. I am still concerned because these symptoms keep coming back. In addition because he keeps biting the tail area until the area is raw, he keeps swallowing his own hair and choking on it and trying to expell it through coughing or choking it on his own hair getting stuck on his throat. Back tô the vet!
