By now we all know that Jack Osbourne, son of Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne, has multiple sclerosis (MS). He knew something was wrong when he could not see people in front of him. He was diagnosed with MS last month. He is now taking medication and has changed his diet, eating healthier in an effort to improve his health. In an article in this week’s People magazine, Osbourne said, “”It’s just one of those things you take as it comes. It’s all about your outlook.”
And on his mother’s TV show, The Talk, Osbourne said that he was notified via e-mail that he was fired from a reality show after his diagnosis was announced. “At no point did they call me,” said Osbourne.
MS is an incurable disease that incapacitates lives in many different ways. It is a neurological condition that damages the body’s nerves and affects the transfer of the brain’s messages throughout the body. It affects each person differently. I wish Jack Osbourne and the entire Osbourne family the very best as he and his family fight this disease.
Ann Romney also has MS. Hers is not as bad as Jack’s, but she does have MS.
MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, on his show The Last Word, when interviewing her husband Mitt Romney, actually mocked Ann Romney for using dressage as a therapy. We all know O’Donnell’s impeccable medical credentials, so his mockery was justified; said with as much sarcasm as I can muster.
In response to an inquiry by O’Donnell, Mitt Romney said, “… her getting back on a horse after she was diagnosed with MS was able, she’s convinced, to help her regenerate her strength and renew that vigor.” O’Donnell responded, “… there are a lot of things you can do to try to deal with MS. But, come on, dressage does not appear in any of the more traditional courses of treatment.”
Recognized MS treatment specialist Lawrence O’Donnell now gets to question Ann Romney’s MS therapy. Again, said with sarcasm.
Here we have yet another MSM “journalist,” with absolutely no credentials, offering his opinion. Hilary Rosen, a Democrat strategist who raised five sons, said Ann Romney had “never worked a day in her life.” At least Rosen had some experience when she made her statement.
Mitt Romney is a wealthy man, with his net worth estimated to be about $230 million. But, then, so are the Osbournes, with an estimated net worth of $157 million. So both families can afford any MS therapy they choose.
It will be most interesting to see if Lawrence O’Donnell has the Osbourne family on his show, then mocks whatever treatment they decide upon for Jack. I’m not holding my breath.
But that’s just my opinion.
