Why does this nation keep voting in the far left, who want to do whats on this viedo to our country? Why don't we round up all these Isalm radicals and send them home? I wrote: Yeah back home to allah which comes from the Babylonian word BA AL LAH ZE BUB which means SATAN...check it out in Strongs Concordance! PC IS A COMMIE TACTIC: Fifty eight years ago there was a war that began in America. Two Jewish communists helped to complete the plans and passed to our enemies how to make and manufacture Nuclear Weapons:
Some how the Left in the USA thought this would be a great idea. Give the ENEMY our most SECRET WEAPON and tell them to go ahead Kill me and my children. You don't need Carlos Mencia to tell you that such a plan is DDD!!!
So along came a man named Joe. No not Biden or the plumber, Joe MaCarthy. He was a Senator who formed the "UnAmerican Activities" investigations in Washington DC which lead to the Imprisonment of the Hollywood Ten, liberal producers and writers who unduely influenced Films with Communist Ideals:
So the question here is Was Joe Right? What is Socialism and Communism and what is our responsibility concerning our way of life:
But today we have a GODLESS society of Liberals who worship Communist ideals and want to redistribute wealth, without God from the 1950's when Joe MaCarthy was stopped until now. What has changed? Was Joe Right? Does a Leftist Media unduely influence society? Make us weak? Risk our Freedom?
So you can see JOE WAS RIGHT 58 years ago, and he is still right today! Someone dropped the ball when they took the Bible out of schools in 1963. Then they let the media drift left and lose its perspective allowing it to aid and provide comfort to our enemy. Then the dumbed down American people got lazy and allowed our Senators and Congressmen to attack the soldiers who defend our rights. Finally, a Commie is running for President.
Soon besides the unborn, you and I will be next on the list of those who it becomes legal to execute.... Think I am to alarmist, People thought Joe was too. Just look at NBC ABC CBS and the late night so called talk shows. Then take a look back at what Communists said they would do to destroy America from within. Then look at what the Obama team has teamed up with China to do to poor old Bob!
ACORN has already announced their recruitment of MICKEY MOUSE! Think what that would do to our system, COMRADE MICKEY!? Even our board games are going to change under an Obama dictatorship:
Finally, we will all be hearded into re-education camps and brainwashed. So learn how to identify a communists:
If he's a democRAT, you can tell he's a communist if his lips move,and everything he says is redifined in unrealistic terms meant to confuse you into thinking a lie is the truth.In the end, the Dictator gets all your money in his pocket and you get to stand in line for one egg, a loaf of bread mixed with sawdust, and a hand full or rice and roaches. See what the KGB says about our universities and how this has been going on for a long time:
So go ahead America, Vote for Obama, You'll get what you deserve! This Message brought to you by the resistance! Patriot Capitalists with chicken eggs, NAH NA I got a 100 and I am not sharing!
The only thing wrong with this film is that democrats taxed the malt shop out of exsistance, filled main street with empty shops, and past CRA (Community Reinvestment Act) which instituted the communist road we are on now. So buy some ISM on Nov.4th 2008 or join Patriot Capitalists and vote for McCain
Family Blames Soldier's Suicide on Anti-Malaria Drug Lariam Known to Have Side Effects
By Kari Lydersen Washington Post Staff Writer
CHICAGO -- Juan Torres didn't believe that his son, Army Reservist Juan "John" M. Torres, had killed himself in Afghanistan just weeks before he was to return home in July 2004. He figured that John, 25, was murdered because of his opposition to the reportedly rampant heroin trade around the base.
So Torres, an Argentine immigrant who works in food service in the Chicago suburbs, launched his own investigation. Now, he is convinced that his son did indeed kill himself. But he blames Lariam, a drug taken by tourists, Peace Corps volunteers and troops to prevent malaria. An Army psychiatrist's report also suggests the medication was a factor in Torres's suicide.
Controversy swirled around Lariam in 2004 after a UPI-CNN investigation linked it to the suicides of six Special Forces soldiers, including three murder-suicides at North Carolina's Fort Bragg in the summer of 2002. Lariam is known to have serious neurological and physical side effects, especially in users who have certain mental health problems. The group Lariam Action USA has catalogued numerous complaints from veterans and others who say they suffered lasting psychological and physical side effects, which sometimes didn't surface until years later.
The Food and Drug Administration's Web site warns of anxiety, hallucinations and other side effects, and says: "Some patients taking Lariam think about killing themselves, and there have been rare reports of suicides. We do not know if Lariam was responsible for these suicides."
The Pentagon launched an investigation into the drug in 2004, but it is still regularly prescribed for troops in Afghanistan, Iraq and other regions.
Now, Torres, 53, is asking for congressional hearings and is demanding a moratorium on Lariam pending more investigation and stricter oversight of the drug's use by troops.
"I think my son's story could save many lives," said Torres, who went to Bagram in 2006 with a documentary filmmaker to ask questions about his son's last days. "I think the military is covering up the effect of Lariam. After a soldier dies, that's it, they don't want to get at the truth."
A study published in the Feb. 11 issue of the peer-reviewed Malaria Journal indicated that almost 10 percent of soldiers sent to Afghanistan have health problems such as depression and bipolar disorder that put them at risk for adverse reactions to the drug.
An Army doctor who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he doesn't have permission to speak publicly said he was "floored" to discover while deployed in Afghanistan this year that many troops who were on antidepressant drugs were also prescribed Lariam.
"Not only was this unit misprescribed Lariam, this was being done with the tacit approval of the command," the doctor said. "If a doctor is concerned enough to prescribe an antidepressant, that would indicate they have a problem which would indicate they should not use Lariam. Anecdotally, almost everyone reports some side effects -- strange dreams, et cetera -- it's highly likely our folks are experiencing on a daily basis problems related to this drug."
John Torres was engaged and planning a honeymoon. He was buying a house in Houston. He was known for his upbeat attitude, and he loved serving in the military, having also done a tour in Bosnia. His time in Afghanistan had been relatively uneventful, marked more by boredom than by fear or stress.
But in the weeks before his death, Torres had complained of intense stomach pain, for which Army doctors found no physical basis. His family says his rambling, strange suicide note was out of character. His father thinks these were manifestations of the known side effects of Lariam, including psychosomatic pain and paranoia.
A report by Army psychiatrist Robert Ensley suggested that the influence of Lariam (Roche Pharmaceuticals' brand name for mefloquine) was a likely factor in the suicide.
"If toxicology reveals the presence of mefloquine, SPC Torres' case should be viewed in light of other suicides suspected to be associated with the drug," said Ensley's report, which noted Torres' symptoms began shortly after deployment, when his unit began taking Lariam, and appeared to abate on a visit home, when he may have stopped the medication.
Through a Freedom of Information Act request, Shaun McCanna, the filmmaker chronicling Torres's story, and Torres's mother, Susana Ferro, obtained Ensley's report. Army officials declined to comment on Torres's death.
Col. Alan J. Magill, director of the Division of Experimental Therapeutics at Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, said the military is aware of the potential for adverse reactions to Lariam but has decided the risk is worth it, compared with the risk of troops contracting malaria in regions such as Afghanistan.
"Since mefloquine was introduced in 1990, there have been numerous well-controlled, randomized clinical trials and other case control studies that generally fail to associate the use of mefloquine with the tragic outcomes such as suicide that have at times been linked to the use of mefloquine," Magill said. "Every year, there are a dozen or so deaths due to malaria in U.S. and military travelers, so the threat of malaria remains quite real."
There are two FDA-approved alternate malaria prophylactic drugs, but Lariam is usually preferred by the military because it is taken only once a week. The others are taken daily.
"Long experience has taught the military that directly observed treatment is the only sure way to save lives and prevent malaria in the deployed force," said Magill, noting that research into other malaria chemoprophylaxis drugs is continuing at Walter Reed. "Directly observing a weekly drug is logistically much easier than directly observing a daily drug, and so mefloquine is often preferred by many in the field."
McCanna and Ferro say Army officials have not answered their questions about how Lariam may have affected Torres. McCanna thinks that Ensley's report was mistakenly sent to them unredacted, as two earlier responses to FOIA requests did not include it.
"They clearly knew it was Lariam early on," said McCanna, whose documentary "Drugs and Death at Bagram" will be released this fall. "But they weren't honest about what they found."
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free -- Ronald Reagan
