OH, your medical records indicate...

Feds want your medical records

January 27, 2009
By Bob Unruh full story


A little-discussed provision in President Obama's economic stimulus plan would demand that every American submit to a government program for electronic medical records without a choice to opt out, and it has privacy advocates more than a little alarmed.

Patients might be alarmed, too, privacy advocates said, if they realized information such as documentation on abortions, mental health problems, impotence, being labeled as a non-compliant patient, lawsuits against doctors and sexual problems could be shared electronically with, perhaps, millions of people.

Do You Want Your Medical Records Online? The Economic Stimulus Bill Puts Your Privacy at Risk

American Association for Health Freedom
Full story

The current economic stimulus bill mandates that every citizen’s health records be stored electronically, without providing patient consent provisions or offering the right to opt-out. During the presidential campaign, President Obama promised a $50 billion investment to create a national electronic medical record network, to be implemented by 2014. Your health records could potentially be available to over 600,000 covered entities through the health record network. It is also possible that your private health records could be leaked or stolen by hackers who broach the security safeguards.

Inspector General and FDA Do Not Give a Damn

[The following post from fellow conscientious consumer, activist and watch dog, Susan Thixton, is yet another example of how our government, her agencies and her employed, does not give a damn.

Real concerns (usually regarding health or freedoms) backed by evidence proving laws (even The U. S. Constitution) are broken, do not matter any more.
Unless of course, you are too poor to cover it up or pay it off in bribes or unscrupulous lawyers. Then expect a five-finger prostrate exam... and thats if you are lucky.

Evidently, it seems once you are in position of power and/or have lots of money, NOTHING ethical matters. How to greedily continue to collect an outrageous paycheck or who can afford to pay you with bribes, does.
Words, integrity, promises and ever more blatantly, LAWS, mean absolutely nothing. Attitudes seem to be; "Push it under the rug,... No one has the money to do anything about that.... so just ignore them!!!"

America's Status Quo.... ever more disgusting me to the core of my being. I'm with you, Susan. Stuck and muted in a roofless hen house on ever rainy days.

Madder than a Wet Hen

by Susan Thixton Full story

Approximately six weeks ago, I wrote the Inspector General’s office in Washington D.C. regarding the FDA allowing some pet foods to violate Federal law. My second follow up call to them has left me very angry.

In November 2008, supporters of this website and myself wrote our Congressional Representatives in Washington to alert them to the FDA allowing some pet food manufacturers to violate laws within the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Each letter provided undeniable evidence to the Representative; yet not one Congressman/woman acknowledged the FDA crime. Furthermore, many of their responses bragged to their constituent about their work in Congress. However, once again, not one Representative addressed the content of the letter sent to them; it almost seemed like they didn’t even read it.


Because it’s pet food, no one of authority seems to care.

Wishing you and your pet(s) the best,

FDA Approves Drugs Illegally

Bush, FDA changed rules to benefit off-label drugs

McClatchy Tribune Full Story

As the Obama administration reviews all the midnight rules that the departing Bush administration issued, it will have to decide whether to try to modify or reverse this last-minute change in the FDA's oversight of off-label drug marketing.

Congressional leaders from both parties criticized the guideline when it was proposed last year. Sen. Charles Grassley, an Iowa Republican who has repeatedly investigated the FDA, said he had serious concerns about the proposal, which he said would deem appropriate something that "the FDA once considered evidence of unlawful marketing."

Bush Admin. to bar autoworkers from striking against GM

As GM chief coasts, workers forced to accept cuts, strike prohibition

A little-noticed provision buried in the Bush Administration's $13.4 billion loan package to General Motors will prohibit the United Auto Workers from launching a strike as long as the company receives funds from the federal government.
Not everyone has felt the full brunt of the declining auto market, however. In 2008, GM CEO Rick Wagoner received a salary increase -- to $2.2 million, plus stock options -- despite the fact the company had been losing money since 2005.

Dishonest Pet Food Aided By FDA

Update on our fight against the FDA
After proof was provided that the FDA allows Federal law to be violated, pet owners all across the United States wrote their Representatives in Congress. We were all disappointed when Congress didn't even bother to read our message; not one Representative in Congress did anything about the FDA. Here's what's happened since...

How to Remove Fluoride from Drinking Water

Preventing Fluorosis

By Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D.
About.com

Most people are aware that there is a controversy surrounding public fluoridation of drinking water. Here is a list of ways to obtain drinking water without fluoride. In addition, I've listed water purification methods which do not remove fluoride from water.

Ways to Remove Fluoride from Water

  • Reverse Osmosis Filtration
    This is used to purify several types of bottled water (not all), so some bottled waters are unfluoridated. Reverse osmosis systems are generally unaffordable for personal use.

  • Activated Alumina Defluoridation Filter
    These filters are used in locales where fluorosis is prevalent. They are relatively expensive (lowest price I saw was $30/filter) and require frequent replacement, but do offer an option for home water filtration.

  • Distillation Filtration
    There are commercially available distillation filters that can be purchased to remove fluoride from water. On a related note: When looking at bottled water, keep in mind that 'distilled water' does not imply that a product is suitable for drinking water and other undesirable impurities may be present.

These Do NOT Remove Fluoride

  • Brita, Pur, and most other filters.
    Some websites about fluoride removal state otherwise, but I checked the product descriptions on the companies' websites to confirm that fluoride is left in the water.

  • Boiling Water
    This will concentrate the fluoride rather than reduce it.

  • Freezing Water
    Freezing water does not affect the concentration of fluoride.

Steps to Reduce Fluoride Exposure

  • Don't take fluoride supplements.

  • Read labels on bottled beverages.
    Unless they are made using distilled or reverse-osmosis water, they are probably made with fluoridated public water.

  • Consider using unfluoridated toothpaste.

  • Avoid drinking black or red tea.
    They come from two different types of plants, but both leaves naturally contain high amounts of fluorine.

  • Be wary of tinned fish and canned food items.
    Fluoride may be used as a preservative.

  • Avoid black or red rock salt or items containing black or red rock salt.

  • Avoid using chewing tobacco.

  • Avoid long term use of medication that contains fluorine.
    Certain antidepressants and medications for osteoporosis contain fluorine.

Fluoridation; Toxic Tap Water

Are You Drinking Toxic Tap Water?

By Paul Connett, PhD
link[At first,the page appears blank. Scroll down to the article]

Water fluoridation is a peculiarly American phenomenon. It started at a time when asbestos lined our pipes, lead was added to gasoline, PCBs filled our transformers and DDT was deemed so "safe and effective" that officials felt no qualms spraying kids in school classrooms and seated at picnic tables. One by one all these chemicals have been banned, but fluoridation remains untouched.

For over 50 years U.S. government officials have confidently and enthusiastically claimed that fluoridation is "safe and effective." However, they are seldom prepared to defend the practice in open public debate. Actually, there are so many arguments against fluoridation that it can get overwhelming. To simplify things it helps to separate the ethical from the scientific arguments.

This article is an extract of the article ‘ The Absurdities of Fluoridation' which can be found at www.mercola.com[At first,the page appears blank. Scroll down to the article]

Connecting the Dots...

CONNECTING THE DOTS...
by Patrick Wood


Apparently, it seems, most aspects of our very existence is portrayed in some paint by numbers kit and invariably, an insidious group of strangers control the instruction key. These few people, are surely no friend and many times not even an acquaintance. Even more assured is that the "kit" most fumble with is not for our best interest, but theirs.

We, as a society, have become so sadly complacent that most are eager to be fed the dots and lines on our intangible canvass thought of as "reality". We sometimes get to pick from the most popular paint colors, thank you very much. Dots, lines, and even the choices of colors to choose from; given to us apparently because most of us think we lack the ability to "draw" on our own.

With evermore blatant frequency the "western societies" (particularly American public) are duped as they claw, greedy for the latest color "needed" to fill in a well laid schematic from someone else.

Specifically placed atrocities (long-term and short-term) dot history, generally by inducing public fear on misleading or false claims. This brings a panic,... a cry for someone in government or an agency to draw another safety line from dot-to-dot, ultimately cutting off more individual choices and freedoms.

Strangely, no large organized group rises up as these cuts are done in surgical precision response following panic of a "False Flag". Butchers separate seemingly small parts of a body (yet effect broad areas. IE, The Constitution, Human Rights, Health Care),... till we run out of organs to remove.

Or a diversion band-aid is placed on a failing cancerous belief (IE, the current monetary system), while never addressing the originating cause (IE, the Fed) and ending it. While further negative effects of little known future "dot placement" (IE, creation of a global central bank) is currently staged.

Most "first world" people then, are grasping greedily at worthless accrual, while blind. Gasping unaware for clean air and water while ignoring what is going into their mouth or veins. This is status quo.

Thus, killing millions of innocent in the name of (one person or group's individual idea of) "bringing peace" or "safety" by control of the masses is "acceptable". The words "genocide" or "slavery" (and their multitude in form and definition) is little thought of, if ever at all.

There are far too few individuals wishing to be peacefully in charge of their own personal mechanisms of basic life needs. Fewer still maintain the orientation, knowledge, and reason between the dichotomous forces telling one what is "NEEDED".

For us to even begin to really "see" what charts our possible portrait, recognizing and connecting the dots that lead up to the "Big Picture" is an important and time consuming first step. Few ever learn to walk from there.

Reflection is usually the sled system used when a virtual dream becomes the vivid construct nightmare in reality. However, one easy step could be studying historical data.

Hello, are you with me here? Because, this is important.... It many times involves information gathering on whom really has to benefit from past, current, and future "dot placement".

Taking this step requires effort beyond the comfort of your "I do not Want to know", workaholic 9-5 (worse yet, working more than one J.O.B.), pick-up the kids, eagerly absorbing propaganda (various mind numbing "entertainment", unending manipulating advertisements, useless and biased so called "news", to name a few examples) from a zombie box in the living room, and then, collapse till it is time to start all over again when the alarm goes off.

Interesting and descriptive word; "alarm"....

Yet increasingly people are gorging on dead food, GMO's, irradiated food, drinking poisonous water. You are breathing toxic air and taking pharmaceuticals for everything under the sun the drug industry can convince you is "wrong" with you. Furthermore, what you are feeding your pet, not to mention the toxic effects on all by the electrically unseen.

Could it be something I ate?
Is there something in the water?
Just noticing all those new transmission towers going up everywhere?
That is SOME brown cloud on the city today, huh?
Where is that countless tonnes per year of 10,000 year half-life nuclear waste going?
Where do you suppose all these new diseases are just popping up from "all of a sudden"?

What percentage of the thousands of new drugs are properly tested before release for public use?
.....

Having a false trust of professionals and surroundings, perhaps? I say..., you should.


Fictional films such as this perspective of "1984", "Soylent Green", "The Pelican Brief", "The Net", etc, seem lost in our memories, or even laughed off as impossible, as we head toward a quite similar reality.

"These things can not happen...", we tell ourselves in fluffy, fru-fru, "new age", "positive thinking", self-assuring (denial) support. Support of that brightly colored egg on canvass we are made to think we have made, is real, and can trust.

Unfortunately, the mirror's reflection of reality is the only thing most people understand (if ever slapped in the face with it) - and that comes - after it is too late to make reasonable or effective difference. The illusion is already in place, out-lined dot by dot with your fear and approval. I dare say, your urgent pleading.

Further, colored in by general and rampant ignorance to logic or of truth. Signed, stamped and now controlled by "authority", with laws from it's framework of puppets that are staunchly defending the dots with propaganda. Do not dare to goof with the dots. Any discord or reason of question with dot status quo, no matter how crazy those dots are when closely examined, is eliminated in one way or another.

Not so long ago people that independently thought that the Earth was not flat, differing from the archaic contemporaries were publicly labeled with "heresy" or "lunacy" and thrown into the dungeons. OOPS, guess that still happens...

We have gone from "freedom of speech" to "free-speech zones and cages" and censorship in every area of imperative thinking (inaccurately put as "alternative" thinking), till we will soon find the dungeon resurrected. OOPS, those are being built as we speak.

People are corralled and detained for hours in the streets by un-identifiable police for nothing more than exercising the almost extinct right to congregate and safely protest, along with bystanders simply being in the "wrong place at the wrong time".

Do YOU ever wonder where we are headed while continuing day-to-day with a blind eye to the dots? Ever look beyond today's pointless "needs"? I say, more appropriately explained as your programmed "wantanous accumulation"?

What are all the new and perhaps, yet undefined and unapparent dots going to draw for the future? If "this or that" does not directly effect you, you are mistaken. The ramifications in continuing in the current manner of not paying any attention are disastrous.

"I pick my battles", you say? "Oh, this and that, does not effect ME".

So the trials of what is simply right or wrong are not important enough to merit your time for consideration? Be assured, some thing you believe in, some day will eventually be of "concern, dislike, or requiring strict control" from the mob mentality within a fascist style government.

Then who will stand by your side in protest? Certainly not any others like you, because now "this or that does not directly effect" them....

If you are not concerned, you are NOT paying attention. YOU are uninformed, ignorant. You are brainwashed by propaganda. Perhaps tired and lazy to the point that anything other than a popular "flat world" belief or what is corrosively put out on a corporate/government held media announcement, must be heresy of a lunatic.

Here is a classic example; I went to vote. At the no paper trail, electronic voting booth (I am supposed to just accept and trust is accurately counting). Come to find out they do NOT. I did not, however, see the person for whom I wished to vote FOR. I requested assistance from a "volunteer" (assuming they would know what to do).

This person looked me in the eye, straight-faced and told me that the only two showing on the screen were, and I quote, "the ONLY TWO PRESIDENTS AVAILABLE"!!! (Oh??...They are the "only two"? They are "Presidents" already? Why are they running then?...) Then she proceeded to argue all that, as fact. Finally, someone else who has not had their head buried in the biased TV set 24/7, came to my aid.

Yes, I know that the possibility of the person I wanted to win was remote. That is not the point.

POINT IS,... Huge numbers of the population believe the poisons pumped out on TV, way this person does, then ignorantly promote it as a fact. Thanks to a biased, sold out media which is one main very effective form of brainwashing, among others.

Thus, a dot put in place... all over the place. Over and over again.

Another huge example.

These episodes are painfully showing the reason WHY.

Individual ignorance on an enormously widespread scale. Brainwashing, by believing in bought and paid for puppets pushing propaganda out a box in your living room (now mandated by LAW to be HDTV... Why do the government care about your having a "better picture"?)... or printed in biased media, pushed by still other puppets making a living on it.

My suggestion is to put some dots under your microscope before jumping into the latest popular color schematic with it's associated "authorities" instruction key. Here is a scary thought; Do some research!!

Yeah, maybe think or question a little out-side the box. At the very least, consider the ravings of (if just for a moment) what anyone whom you may think a "lunatic", is trying to relate.

The Earth may not be "flat" after all.

You may have a bunch of dots that are putting together a picture of the future that is not what you have been led to believe, and less yet desire.
