Make the FDA Advisory, Not Mandatory

On March 30th we published an article about the sudden push by the FDA to label homeopathic remedies as dangerous.

FDA Pushing To Regulate Homeopathy Out of Existence?

In response to this, an organization called Downsize DC is taking action to do two things…

•Stop the FDA from prohibiting homeopathy
•Urge Congress to make the FDA advisory rather than mandatory
We’re copying you on the message Downsize DC is sending to its supporters. We urge you to read it and then use the link below to go to Downsize DC’s quick-and-easy Educate the Powerful System to issue the same instructions to your Congressional reps.

Here’s the Downsize DC message…

———-

Please be aware…

The FDA is threatening to crack down on homeopathy. Please take action to stop this oppression. https://downsizedc.org/etp/fda/

•Ask Congress to make the FDA advisory rather than mandatory.
•Use your personal comments to tell Congress to block the FDA from any action against homeopathy.
You can copy or edit the following letter for this purpose…

I believe personal conscience should rule in all things. This includes minority health care choices such as homeopathy. Sadly, within just the last few days, the FDA has rushed to…

* Publish a “safety alert” against homeopathy 19 http://1.usa.gov/1FgGuRf

* Called for hearings on April 20th. http://1.usa.gov/1FgGzV2

I want all my Congressional representatives to write the FDA a letter telling them to cancel the alert and the hearings.

I also want you to sponsor legislation that will make the FDA advisory rather than mandatory. Toward this end, please inform yourself that a 2009 survey of adverse events showed…

* 41 major adverse events with only one death for the entire spectrum of supplements including botanicals, amino acids, and vitamins

* More than 7,000 major adverse events for FDA approved drugs, including 496 deaths

This makes it very clear — we do NOT need the FDA to protect us from things like supplements and homeopathy. What we really need is protection from the FDA and their Big Pharma cronies.

Please show that you represent me, and not the FDA-Big Pharma cartel.

* Send that letter I asked you for telling the FDA to back-off homeopathy

* Sponsor legislation making the FDA advisory rather than mandatory

I will be watching what you do.

Corruption of congress continues: S.510/HR2749 loaded into a dead bill

Quotes of the Day:

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” — attributed to Edmund Burke

“All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do the wrong thing.” — Michael Cloud

The so-called food safety bill passed. It took corrupt procedural tricks to do it.

We told you last week that the Senate made a mistake when they passed their version of the Food Safety Bill (S.510). Under the Constitution only the House can introduce revenue measures. The Senate trampled on this prerogative, and the House leadership wouldn’t stand for it.

Because of this . . .

We thought the so-called food safety bill was dead, and that we had won. Not so. Instead, we lost. Badly.

I’ll tell you how this happened, and what we can do about it. You’ll need to be motivated, smart, and intuitive to understand what’s been done to you, and that there IS a way to defeat these bastards.

So . . .

The “food safety” bill did NOT die as it should have because House leaders used what I’ll call a “Dead Shell Bill” to trick their way past their Constitutional and procedural problems. This “Dead Shell Bill,” HR 3082, was . . .

* Dead in the sense that it was a numbered bill that was never going to reach a final vote.
* An empty Shell because the Congressional leadership removed its original contents. More

Are you guilty until proved innocent?

Quote of the Day: “Under civil forfeiture, police and prosecutors can seize your car or other property, sell it and use the proceeds to fund agency budgets, all without so much as charging you with a crime. Unlike criminal forfeiture, where property is taken after its owner has been found guilty in a court of law, with civil forfeiture, owners need not be charged with or convicted of a crime to lose homes, cars, cash or other property. Americans are supposed to be innocent until proven guilty, but civil forfeiture turns that principle on its head.” – The Institute For Justice, “Policing For Profits”

Civil asset forfeiture is the practice of seizing and keeping property that police claim was used in a crime.

* The government does not have to prove their claim in court under the standard of “beyond a reasonable doubt”
* Instead of “innocent until proven guilty” the property owner must prove innocence at his or her own expense
* Incredibly, the funds necessary to pay for that defense are often also confiscated

Police departments are growing more dependent on forfeitures to pay for their budgets. This means no one is safe . . .

* Instead of “protecting and serving” the people, police are pressured to investigate “crimes” which provide the best opportunity to seize property and cash,
* You can lose your car, your cash, or other property through a simple misunderstanding, or because you “look” suspicious
* And even where there are state laws protecting the innocent against abuses, the federal government rewards local police departments for evading state law!

Civil asset forfeiture is a moral and constitutional outrage. Yet the courts permit it. Only public pressure will bring this corrupt and barbaric practice to an end, so we’re asking you to tell Congress to End Asset Forfeiture.

Three provisions of the USA PATRIOT Act will expire on December 31. Committees in both the House and Senate have approved renewal bills, but the House version includes much stronger civil liberties protections.

Let’s tell Congress to pass the House version, or pass nothing at all and let these provisions expire using our “I am not afraid” campaign. https://secure.downsizedc.org/etp/campaigns/77

Here are my personal comments which you may copy or borrow from . . .

Specifically, please allow the following provisions of the Patriot Act to sunset on December 31: More

Congressional bribery……isn’t that still a felony?

Congressional leaders routinely use your tax money to bribe other members of Congress, buying votes to enact legislation that couldn’t pass otherwise. The so-called healthcare bill is the latest example.

Please send Congress a letter using an anti-bribery argument to oppose the cancerous healthcare bill.

Quote of the Day:

“It has been argued that full disclosure of details of funding facilities like TALF and PDCF, that enabled massive bailouts of Wall Street, would damage the financial position of those firms and destabilize the economy. In other words, if the American people knew how rotten the books were at those banks and how terribly they messed up, they would never willingly invest in them, and they would fail. Failure is not an option for friends of the Fed. Therefore, the funds must be stolen from the people in the dark of night. This is not how a free country works. This is not how free markets work. That is crony corporatism and instead of being a force for economic stabilization, it totally undermines it.” — Congressman Ron Paul

Subject: Twitter, Facebook, and the fate of NAIS

Washington, DC is relentless in its pursuit of central control. Some people think the opposition to DC should be centralized and coordinated as well. They’d like to fight fire with fire.

But the most effective way to Downsize DC is to inspire more and more people to just say no. It can work. It has worked.

Consider the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). It was envisioned as early as the 1990’s, and plans were put in place in the years 2002-2005. And yet . . . More
