  •  I had an interesting (0+ / 0-)

    conversation with a gal that does a holistic treatment for our back. One thing she mentioned is the pharmacy people getting us hooked on so many  meds we don't function right any more. We come home from work so tired we don't have the energy to even eat right.
    Another topic was the H1N! vaccine being population control. It was an interesting night. Would be really sad if any of this was true. I am just glad I am on the down side of 50 and won't live to see the end of the US or the world. I do blood work on babies and feel really sad for them. What kinda world are we leaving them?

    Congress passed tighter restrictions on abortions but the insurance pays for Viagra? How does that make sense

      we are not on same wavelength many people want a voice on this issue;

      the policies of past need to be examined and understood in the public domain, analyzed by activists and researchers to see how they applied in the last thirty years, twelve years, eight years so on so forth to understand where we are as it stands now; before the public can have a voice on this important issue it has to be debated by/and/in the public domain

        but if this is being done on purpose, we don't have any say it in. How many calls have you made or signed petitions on everything from health care to everything else we have been fighting for and nothing is done.
        I will say it again, we are not a democracy anymore. We vote in who we think might help us, but then we don't get the help. except alan grayson. He is pretty cool. Everyone else is there to get re elected.

          if you say you have no power, if you decide to be disempowered then you are... but beyond that

          you haven't studied the issue one bit your opinion has no basis in reality ... simply emotion based

          sorry I don't mean to be so blunt it is one of my failings

          if Alan Grayson is the only hope for the future you haven't been doing your homework.... I don't mean to be offensive to you but like I said we are not on the same wavelength.... I realize the enormous challenge there is to restore democracy but I want/hope for people to participate so collective we HAVE A VOICE AND LEVERAGE in making the democracy work ..... it can be daunting to wonder what one person can do to make a difference but have to look no further back than Obama campaign for the playbook on how it is done

            no offense was taken. I was just pointing out the fact that we vote for people who we think will help us out, and all they do is take money from corporations and lobbyist and screw us.do you perchance listen to Democracy Now and Rachel and see how daunting the task is. It seems to me the whole world is corrupt. When so many people support the PO and congress is giving us this INSURANCE reform, not health care reform what does that say? And yes the Obama campaign was really cool. But I believe he doesn't really have a say in how things are done. Call me a CT but I think JFK was assassinated because he did things the wayhe did. And I do feel disempowered but I will sign petitions and call my congress critters who are in Utah by the way. I just don't think we have much of a voice in our government. Like I said, we want the PO, we want out of our wars. Did you see Naomi on Rachel about the empty logo book? Or the contractors that are making tons of money on our tax dollars? I DON'T have a say in that.
            But you point is interesting. Thanks for responding.

              like 'real' citizens ....it's good to come to that realization

              the only way to defeat wedge politics wherever it comes up is to not allow yourself to be splintered off .... have to take time off from it for few days here and there for peace of mind..... important to create responsibile citizens in the upcoming generations one person at a time or more to take your place when you have had your fill or aged out of politics....

              I keep pushing back my 'retirement' from political activism date I'll know when to ease up if I've gotten enough political cultural edu. done in my one on one strategy....
