"Orchestrating Health Crises:

Forced Vaccinations and

the Totalitarian State"

Mitch Cohen

Under legislation submitted to states throughout the US, medical providers
will be required to administer smallpox vaccines to the population whether
people want it or not. The doctors will also fill out forms enabling the
federal government to track those inoculated with smallpox vaccines.

Ordinarily I would not use this term. But when I came across the article

An excerpt: "
Twenty-three years of war have ravaged the mental health and
psychosocial functioning of the people in Afghanistan. Killing,
executions, massive persecution, forced internal displacement, fear
associated with living in mined areas, and the latest escalation of
violence have left an indelible mark on the population. In addition,
the psychological impact of living in uncertainty affects at least
three million Afghan refugees.""

Genome for the people


Corporate feudalism is hampering research, says an eminent geneticist

It has become a widespread belief that the mapping of the human genome will
lead to a new era of medicine. Shortly before the first drafts were published
with great fanfare in February, Francis Collins, the director of the US
National Genome Research Institute and a founder of the public-sector Human
Genome Project, laid out a vision of a future in which mankind will call on
unprecedented resources in the fight against disease.
By 2010, Collins predicted, scientists will have developed tests for dozens
of genetic illnesses. A decade further down the line, there will be
gene-based designer drugs for diabetes, hypertension, heart disease and
schizophrenia. Cancer treatment will be transformed, and every patient will
be prescribed medicines that are tailored to his or her own genetic
fingerprint. In 30 years’ time most Britons will live to the age of 90, and
human beings will be able to manipulate their evolution by genetic

While some scientists quibble over the timescale of Collins’s prognosis, few
question the enormous potential of the genome to transform human life. Yet
eight months after the project’s success, many of its architects are raising
concerns about the scientists’ approach to realising its medical fruits.

NBC Worker Tests Positive for Anthrax

An employee of NBC in New York has tested positive for anthrax, the network said Friday. The FBI (news - web sites) and CDC are investigating.

The anthrax is not the same respiratory anthrax that killed a Florida man, NBC News said in a statement.

The network said it had received some suspicious mail and immediately contacted the FBI, CDC and the New York Department of Health.

``The mail was tested by these organizations, and the employee was treated by several physicians. All these tests came back negative,'' said the NBC statement. ``However, this morning, a later test on the employee came back positive for traces of cutaneous anthrax.''

"[A] report, commissioned by the cigarette maker [...] totes up smoking’s 'positive effects' on national finances, including revenue from excise and other taxes on cigarettes and 'health-care cost savings due to early mortality.'" Well holy fuck, you don't say? These guys really twist my stomach into knots, let me tell ya. "C'mon, give us a trade deal! We'll make a killing!" Jesus! What have these guys been smoking?! Luckily, Adbusters is leading a campaign to revoke Philip Morris' corporate charter. Get involved."


mobiustrip44 writes: "A study commisioned by Ralph Nader's consumer advocacy group Public Citizen has discovered that more than 10% of our nation's hospitals turn emergency patients away, despite a federal law prohibiting such action, when those patients do not have the funds or a supported insurance plan for treatment. The seldom-imposed fine for this attrocity is a mere $50,000—generally a fraction of any doctor's salary. Really, what is the world coming to?"
