The FDA and the Drug Companies attempt to stick it to us again!

Most of you who read this blog are probably too young to remember, but at one time "Conservative" meant small government and local control of one's life and destiny. It meant being responsible with how government used the people's money, it meant keeping your hands off unless absolutely necessary.

Well boys and girls, not any more!

There are no more Conservatives, just Right Wing Authoritarians playing dress up. The Bush Regime is just the end product of the corporate totalitarian State that started with Reagan. George W. Bush has been selling us down the river to the mega-corporations since he was put in office (you notice I don't say elected).

Thanks to George Bush and his cronies, we have a Medicare prescription drug bill that insures that Americans will continue to pay the highest prices in the world for necessary medications, ten to one hundred times higher in many cases. A bill that attacks our most vulnerable population, retirees on fixed incomes.

But it doesn't stop there. In an attempt to force us all to use only health care products that can be regulated and supplied by these mega-corps the FDA has come up with a plan to control such things as juices, hot rocks, and massage oil.

You think I'm kidding? Well check this out.

Health freedom action alert: FDA attempting to regulate supplements, herbs and juices as "drugs"

That's right, rather than doing their jobs and regulating the drug companies that dump drugs on the market that they KNOW will have massively damaging side effects (all so that they can get their pound of flesh) the FDA wants to stop you from rubbing almond oil into your skin without a prescription.

You don't have to put up with this.

Write your congress people and the FDA, tell them how you feel about this. Keep and eye on those elected officials and if they don't stop this egregious betrayal of the public trust campaign against them in the next election and put someone in office who will not be in the pocket of big business.

BushCo wants small govt when it comes to human services and regulating the environment, but not when it comes to their buddies in big biz, especially oil, drugs, agribiz and the military.

The very notion that vitamins, juices, herbs etc could be regulated- and patented, just watch, that's comin' too- is criminal!

We got this in the e-mail last night.
Really pisses me off, and we really need to fight this.

Get rid of the ADHD drug market which exploits our kids. Teach the children to run around and play again. Don't sue the teachers if they have an accident. It is better for the children to have experiences and to learn from their mistakes, than for their brains to be shrunk with acid.
