A smoking gun…

…as many of us know has been hiding in plain sight. Nowhere has the indoctrination of the masses been more evident (and rigorously enforced) than in the area of vaccines. Even the scientific genius of Jimmy Kimmel has been applied to the effort.  And the clarion of “no scientific proof” continues to sound and is blown in the ears of those who otherwise claim that kids injected 72 times between birth and high school graduation might actually be affected in negative ways.  Now we have a bit of a study that demands some explanation on the part of the Vaxxers… »

Follow the bouncing molecule…

telford-taylor-ig-farben-quoteSo, it is announced that Bayer is buying Monsanto. Combine Frankenstein with Dracula, the Hulk with Mr Hyde. Whatever. But the combination of these two giants — coupled with the enormous amount of $$$ they can bring to bear on governments and what they mandate — please once again review the definition of “fascism” — portends enormous implications for the general, and overall unsuspecting, citizenry… »

Hillary’s health might be a bigger matter than you think…

hrc-sickAfter Madame Hillary’s very untimely collapse at the 9/11 Memorial today — all of which was caught on video and is now viral — there has to be some grave concern about both perception and reality. The perception, of course, is that she might simply be tired, require some thyroid adjustment, was actually a little overheated (though it was only 84 degrees), etc, etc. But there is certainly a growing perception that she just cannot handle the pressure and the pace. But there might be a much more nefarious cause with a silver lining….

It’s not my job…

One of the troubling elements in moNot my jobdern healthcare is the degree to which over-specialization can distill common sense out of the complex equation of patient care. It is certainly not rare for a patient to go to prestigious clinics like Mayo, see an internal medicine specialist who notes a complaint of a sore shoulder, and be told that they are being referred to an orthopedist specializing in shoulder surgery.  Extra day(s), new visit schedule, additional extra tests at patient and insurer expense (“But it’s MAYO!”), and not a wit of additional investigation on the part of the original physician. Often, no real exam of the shoulder. How about a simple x ray? Did you fall on it?

The FDA once again does the bidding of the drug industry…

fda-corrupt

…by now changing the rules of the original Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994.  This was designed to allow Americans more access to health freedom and supplements in doses that previously had been very small.  Prior to that vitamin C was only available in doses of 60 mg or less, eg.  Under the guise of providing the patient public with a “greater level of safety”, the whole thing stinks of drug industry collusion with the government agency it essentially owns in order to impair competition and perhaps allow a drug company to patent a supplement.  Care to guess if this will possibly increase the price?  To wit…

Medical fascism by any other name…

hitler_mussolini

There is often a need to help people out with the definition of “fascism” — a term used quite loosely to describe any politican or party with whom you might disagree (or despise).  But it actually is derived from the Italian “fascimo” which means “bundle”.  Some say that bundling corporate power with government achieves the necessary level of autocracy that can impose the will of dictator on the citizenry.  Others refer to the wrapping of rods around an axe handle to make it stronger and unbreakable.  In any case when the government imposes regulatory burdens that favor only a few (ie, those who have paid someone enough), we have a form of “fascism” if you will.  This works well when it comes to making the American public pay a lot for medications.  It is most definitely NOT a marketplace…. »

Denying care with a touch of ignorance….

Imagine being able to take a simple oral swab and analyze a set of genes that would allow incredibly more accurate prescribing for drugs that affect paAmbienin and the brain. A number of new (for profit) companies are offering just that type of information that promises to take a lot of the guesswork out of prescribing antidepressants, pain meds, soporifics (sleep meds), and others. This type of testing is easy now with results available in 3-4 days.

In Iowa Lyme disease only lasts a few weeks…

Inquisition

…a position which is now so out of touch with reality so as to be “anti-Copernican” in its ignorance.  Recently, an 18 YO girl who had been treated by an Iowa physician for Lyme disease with antibiotics, improved, significantly with this treatment, but now can no longer treat that condition in Iowa.  You read that right… »
