You no walk there!
You walk where we tell you!!
Or ELSE!! We arrest you, label you a terrorist, a non complianttype and put you away forever….
We tell you what is medicine and you pay for it…big dollars…so we can control you better and big corporations make more money, for more campaign dollars for us, the Politicians…
According to the FDA’s legal definition, a drug is anything that “diagnoses, cures, mitigates, treats, or prevents a disease.”
The problem with this definition is that there are numerous substances, as readily available and benign as found on our spice racks, which have been proven by countless millennia of human experience to mitigate, prevent and in some cases cure disease, and which cannot be called drugs according to the FDA.
How can this be? Well, the FDA has assumed for itself Godlike power, requiring that its official approval be obtained before any substance can legally be used in the prevention and treatment of disease.
The FDA’s legal-regulatory control therefore is totalitarian and Napoleonic in construct; what it does not explicitly permit as a medicine is implicitly forbidden.
Historically the FDA has required new drugs undergo expensive and elaborate multi-phased clinical trials, which are out of the grasp of any ordinary interest who might want to demonstrate the efficacy of a non-patentable (and therefore unprofitable) herb, food or spice.
Is all about control….
And it is getting pretty damn stupid…Partial list. Click on above for complete list of stupidity..
1 One California town is actually considering making it illegal to smoke in your own backyard.
#2 In Louisiana, a church was recently ordered to stop giving out water because it did not have a permit to do so.
#3 In the United States it is illegal to operate a train that does not have an “F” painted on the front. Apparently without that “F” we all might not know where the front of the train is.
#4 In many U.S. states is it now illegal to collect rain that falls from the sky on to your own property.
#5 In America today it is illegal to milk your cow and sell the milk to your neighbor. If you do this, there is a good chance that federal agents will raid your home at the crack of dawn.
(21) And Elijah came to all the people, and said, "How long will you falter between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people answered him not a word.
Yeah I am old enough to have watched the originals..
Are not always the brightest comments…although coming from our "elected" politicians one would think….errrr… never mind..
About values: "America’s not just [about] looking out for yourself, it’s not just about greed, it’s not just about trying to climb to the very top and keep everybody else down. … Hard work, that’s a value. Looking out for one another, that’s a value. The idea that we’re all in it together and [that] I’m my brother’s keeper and [my] sister’s keeper, that’s a value." –Barack Obama
Change: "I’m here to tell [Republicans] they are wrong about America. Because in America we understand — yes, we’re rugged individuals. Yes, we don’t expect a handout. But we also understand we are greater together than we are on our own." –Barack Obama
Pot, meet kettle: "Just like they did last year, gas prices are starting to climb. … Now, some politicians always see this as a political opportunity. … Step one is drill, step two is drill, and step three is keep drilling. … Well the American people aren’t stupid. You know that’s not a plan — especially since we’re already drilling. It’s a bumper sticker. It’s not a strategy to solve our energy challenge. It’s a strategy to get politicians through an election." –Barack Obama
Heaven forbid: "[M]y presidency is not over. I’ve got another five years coming up." –Barack Obama
Faith matters: "[N]inety-eight percent of women in childbearing age who are Catholic use contraception. Ok, so in practice the church has not enforced this and now they want the federal government and private insurance to enforce it. It just isn’t consistent to me."– House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)
What Constitution? "Well, basically, we’re not looking to the Constitution on that aspect of [government being allowed to
require organizations to provide free services]. What I’m trying to say is basically the decision has been made by this congress that American citizens are entitled to health care." –Rep. Kathy Hochul (D-NY)
