The Time Is NOW

Many consider the pharmaceutical industry to be as oppressive as Wall Street.

Everyone by now has heard about the “Occupy Wall Street” (OWS) movement that’s growing legs and spotlighting financial problems in the USA. Occupy Wall Street is moving across the country from city to city. In Philadelphia—the city nearest where I live—is gearing up for an OWS encampment around its beautiful Victorian vintage city hall. Philly’s police commissioner said in an interview on the radio that they will meet with the OWS folks in what I interpreted as a way to allow them to demonstrate.
Nothing explains the reasons for the OWS movement than this young man who vocalizes sentiments too valid to ignore. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tFz1VVXsWRU&feature=player_embedded

The OWS movement makes one question why there are no organized protests against another even more oppressive regime than Occupy Wall Street: the mandates of Big Pharma and its vaccine industry with pseudo-scientifically-supported products that are killing, maiming, and dramatically increasing the costs of healthcare.

Where are the protests? Where are the marches? Where are the encampments? Where, more than anything, is the U.S. Congress AND why its refusal to investigate the neurotoxins and poisons in vaccines that are damaging infants, toddlers, teenagers, adults, and senior citizens? Where!

Is Congress too embarrassed to act because its members may have to hand back all the money they took from Big Pharma lobbyists when the public finds out that, basically, Congress is bought by corporate interests?

Paraphrasing the young man in the above OWS video,

• U.S. citizens should demand the end to FIAT pharmaceutical governance in running U.S. healthcare to enhance Big Pharma’s financial interests and to the economic and health ruination of the USA and its citizens.
• When Big Pharma f—s up, Congress and the U.S. FDA bails them out. The National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act of 1986 (Public Law 99-660) and Vaccine Court with its ‘biased’ hearing masters does just that, and basically takes away a citizen’s rights under tort law normally provided by the legal system in the USA.
• Get pharmaceutical corporate governance out of health care and Congress.
• No more vaccine mandates from anyone: federal, state, or local.
• No more vaccine pseudo-science and sham journals touting vaccine safety.
• Get Big Pharma out of running healthcare.
Americans are sicker now taking all the vaccines and prescription drugs Big Pharma is pushing on them than ever in USA’s history.

In 2007-2008, 1 out of every 5 children and 9 out of 10 older Americans reported using at least one prescription drug in the past month.

Over the last 10 years, the percentage of Americans who took at least one
prescription drug in the past month increased from 44% to 48%. The use of two or more drugs increased from 25% to 31%. The use of five or more drugs increased from 6% to 11%.
• Persons with a regular place for health care were 2.7 times as likely to have used prescription drugs in the past month as those without a regular place for health care.
• Those with health insurance were almost twice as likely to have used at least one prescription drug in the past month as those without health insurance coverage.
• Among people with health insurance, those having a prescription drug benefit were 22% more likely to use prescription drugs than those who did not have this benefit. http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/data/databriefs/db42.htm

Big Pharma, in essence, has turned licensed medical doctors into legal drug pushers! We have a legal drug culture in the USA that profits Big Pharma. That’s gotta stop!

Isn’t it about time for another American Civil Rights and Healthcare Revolution? We should recall Dr. Martin Luther King’s famous, “We shall overcome” if we want to be healthy.

Those who organized the Occupy Wall Street protests along with the Tea Party activists may be on to something. I remember the days of the VietNam War protests in the 1960s. I protested that war from its very beginning and am proud to say that. What we have learned in its aftermath was not nice. It is my opinion that the media, which is controlled, and Big Pharma—along with vested interests in government health agencies—just may be pulling off a similar catastrophy.

Let’s take back our health and its care.
The time to act is NOW. Let’s roll! We going down.

    OWS is one of these groups that can produce a pound of truth wrapped up in a ton of BS.  I believe that this Govt./Pharma complex is pure evil, but protesting working men and women in the streets of NY will not solve anything.  Most all of these spoiled little brats protesting down there have had their brains poisoned by drugs, vaccines and the real opiate of the masses, Government hand outs!!! That is their problem.  99% of their demands are pure lunacy demanding all debt be forgiven, free college for all, free ins. for all,  demanding world peace (sounds like heaven).  This stuff isn’t going to happen in the here and now. 

     If they could actually formulate a cogent thought they would realize that Wall street didn’t cause the problem!!!!  Govt. did.  Wall street just sidled up to the trough to eat.  Who forced the polio vaccine?(govt). Who opened the door to carte blanche abortion?(govt) who legislated MMR, DTP, hib, varicella,…….Govt. Govt. Govt.  The sheeple lined up bleating praise to Salk, Bahhhhing to their ever so intelligent pediatrician and they ignored the Good Shepherd. Alas tis the human condition

    These dummies should be in Washington DC demanding the restoration of our sovereignty.  Instead they are laying around the streets of NY infringing on the freedoms of others and demanding the Govt. secure more freebies and giveaways??????  Communists have a name for these types, useful idiots!!!

    No, big pharma didn’t turn doctors into drug pushers. 3 generations of unfaithful, uneducated, weak, fearful parents did.  This departure from faith, family, and old fashioned common sense created a vacuum and big pharma/big brother stepped up to fill it!!! 

    Don’t try to convince any of the OWS folks of any of this, they are not interested in finding the answers and working hard for the solution.  They just want more freebies. 

    The Govt. must be stripped of its powers before BIG PHARMA is relegated to the rightful position of corner drug store once again.

    Bankers own the Pharma industry.  They have free homes, college and health care in Libya, why shouldn’t we?  No, we have to pay interest to bankers so we are perpetually in debt.  Those young people on Wall Street have their facts straight..

    Dr.G, apparently you missed the entire point of my article: PROTESTING, something citizens have forgotten about, don’t engage in anymore and, therefore, we have what we have. 

    Everyone has the right to free speech, which is being DENIED those who want non-toxic healthcare.  I advocate letting government know when it goes wrong–we have that right in a democratic republic–and government has gone wrong in so many ways you so nicely point out.  Don’t you think the U.S. Constitution has been trashed at many levels, including SCOTUS?

    You, in your comments, made so many points that are dramatically disturbing, I have to thank you!  Thank you for enhancing my article in a round-about way.  I appreciate your comments.  I hope others can realize their merits.

  • Dr. G

    I got the point.  Protest with your dollars in your own home.  That is the whole thrust of your website. You are attempting to educate people so they make more informed choices!!!!   Choose nature 90% of the time then pharma will only be 10%, right where it should be.  We are the problem!!!  Big pharma would have no money if we didn’t give it to them.  Banks won’t lend money to an industry that doesn’t generate profit!!!  

    I loathe the pharmaceutical industry.  I have 5 children.  None have been vaccinated, none of them have had antibiotics, none of them have had antipyretics, but all of them have a sensible mother and father who choose faith, nature and cleanliness to maintain health!!!!!

  • Dr. G

    Yeah…..uh let’s all move to lybia.  You first.

  • Catherine J Frompovich

    Congratulations, Dr. G on having the smarts to know what to avoid, if you are a medical doctor.

  • Dr. G

    It’s not the “smarts of what to avoid” that makes the difference;  It’s the courage to hold on to the truth and will to resist temptation to take the easy way…. day after day after day after day,  sickness after sickness after snivel, after stomach ache after ear infection, after headache, after fever.  Scientific evidence points to the facts: 90% of illness are merely immunologic exercise.
