FDA fails to protect children from dangerous drugs

drugged-childrenFDA allows drug manufacturers to expand their market into the lives of children.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On September 15 and 16, I attended an FDA meeting to discuss the appropriate development plans for establishing the safety and efficacy of prescription opioid analgesics for pediatric patients.  On September 15, the day was filled with physicians giving their “expert” opinions on neonatals and newborns being given opioids for pain — after all they feel the pain of “needle sticks”.  One expert said the discussion was like “elephants in a room”.  I describe it as “egos in a room” and there were many of them.

FDA approves a dangerous opioid based on “cheap party” study! Disturbing and true!

The drug was altered in various ways, and the participants were asked whether they liked the drug and would use it again. Most said they would not.

(MYRTLE BEACH) FDA advisory committee strikes again and recommended approval of Vantrela ER (Teva Pharmaceuticals), a new hydrocodone bitartrate extended-release tablet with abuse-deterrent capabilities. As the U.S. is fighting a devastating epidemic of prescription opioid/heroin addictions and deaths, the FDA approves yet another opioid. Maybe someone should ask the FDA “how many opioids does it take to devastate every state in the country?” The US is #1 in the world in opioid use followed closely by Canada.

One of the quotes in the Aljazeera America TV piece delivered by Webster to a now deceased patient’s family was “A chronic pain sufferer could not become an addict.”

(MYRTLE BEACH)   On Monday, August 31 at 10 pm ET and 7 pm PT Aljazeera America Television will be broadcasting a program entitled “Fault Lines – How a Utah Woman Got Hooked on Painkillers.”  Here is a link to a preview of that show – http://america.aljazeera.com/watch/shows/fault-lines/2015/8/how-did-a-utah-woman-get-hooked-on-painkillers.html

The program focuses on a woman who was a patient of Lynn R. Webster, MD, head of Life Tree Pain Clinic in Salt Lake City, Utah.  Dr. Webster’s pain clinic had been raided by the D.E.A. in 2010 because of high numbers of deaths while patients were under his treatment.  During an interview, Webster had said “I do not know precisely how many former clinic patients died of an opioid overdose. At most it could be 20.  Many of those probably were suicides. I don’t think any of the deaths were for scripts I wrote. They were from staff.”  (In some states, including Utah, nurse practitioners and physician assistants can write prescriptions if they are supervised by a physician — and the prescription is signed by a physician.  Was this called throwing your staff under the bus, Dr. Webster?)

Have you seen the statistics in Florida of the deaths and addictions to controlled substances? 

Marianne Skolek Global News Centre

(MYRTLE BEACH)   There is an organization of ordinary citizens operating out of Florida called StoppNow.  Here is a link to their website http://stoppnow.com/?page_id=252.  These ordinary citizens recognize that pill mills operating out of storefront buildings are warehouses of prescription opioids who are dispensing pills to hopelessly addicted people lined up outside the storefront pill mills.  So StoppNow organizes picket lines in front of the pill mills calling attention to law enforcement and the D.E.A. that people are dying and families torn apart because of these pill mills.  Ordinary citizens saving lives — heroes in every sense of the word.

Exposing lies, telling the truth

exposing_VitchekIn ‘Exposing Lies of the Empire’, Andre Vltchek documents, with chillingly violent detail, the sins of Christianity which has wanted converts (at the point of a gun if necessary) and does not tolerate, let alone ‘love thy neighbour’, when the neighbour is of a different faith.

(TASMANIA)   I have just read Andre Vltchek’s new book ‘Exposing Lies of the Empire’. http://badak-merah.weebly.com/exposing-lies-of-the-empire.html Let me tell you something about this book of 800 pages.

Vltchek writes with passion and poetry, describing the true horror experienced by the world at large, living at the gunpoint of the imperial powers, while also describing and drawing you into a world of progress, culture and refinement that exists in some places and, so we are tantalised, might exist elsewhere too and even, perhaps, one day for us all.

Pat Kirby was told he would lose his right to bear arms because he suffers from wartime PTSD.

Tim King Global News Centre

(MYRTLE CREEK)  An Oregon man who suffers from combat PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) was told he would lose his gun rights in late 2013, because he was deemed “incompetent” by the VA (Veterans Administration).  Pat Kirby, a decorated Vietnam Veteran, was threatened with the loss of his most basic rights as an American, because he doesn’t physically write checks to pay his own bills.  His wife, Susan Kirby, has always taken care of the financial side of their family affairs, ever since he came home from his final tour in Vietnam, in 1972.* For that reason, he was initially told he would literally have to hand over his guns, from his extremely rural location, in the mountains near Roseburg, Oregon.

OKINAWA: fighting to save nature and culture

35,000 citizens recently rallied on Okinawa opposing US military bases

There is much talk about whether the Okinawan delegation to DC will be successful in changing US policy. 

Bruce Gagnon for Global News Centre
(BATH, Me.)  The right-wing newspaper, Washington Times, ran a piece on Monday entitled “The other side to the Okinawa story: The ‘All Okinawa’ opposition to US military presence [occupation] is a leftist ruse”.The hit piece was written by Robert Eldridge (political affairs and public diplomacy officer, Marine Corps Installations Pacific on Okinawa). He wrote about the current visit of Okinawan Gov. Takeshi Onaga to Washington to express the demand of his people that the US government close the military bases on their island.  Gov. Onaga was elected in a recent landslide vote by the citizens on Okinawa who have had more than enough of US bases, destruction of their environment and culture, and want them immediately closed.

In the Washington Times Eldridge commented:

Americans hoard too much stuff. Everywhere I go in small or large towns I see storage facilities being built. Americans have “stuff” and we need more storage space. We spend most of our lives wanting stuff and then we have to worry about keeping or maintaining what we have accumulated.

Dr. Glenn Mollette Global News Centre

(NEWBURGH, Indiana)  My wife and I cleaned out a bedroom closet recently. I looked through my clothes and saw too much I had not worn in the last year. I bagged it and carried it off to the local charity pickup truck. I realize they will sell it but they will sell it for cheap and somebody else will hopefully use it. I suspect together we hauled off seven or eight bags of clothes. I really don’t buy that much but I had a lot of clothes that I had accumulated and I thought just maybe someday I might put some of them to use. Some stuff was just old and outdated and as I hate to confess, some of it wouldn’t fit anymore.
