Prozac Strikes Again

I was not surprised to learn that the latest school shooter had been in the hands of psychiatrists and was on Prozac. No one ever seems to ask the question: "If psychiatry works then how come this child (after years of treatment) commits such a crime?" Does no one see that psychiatry is a fraud and that the treatments psychiatrists use (such as Prozac) actually CAUSE people to commit such crimes?

My wife has a saying, "See a tragedy? Spot the psych." I recommend this to anyone who is wondering about the epidemic of violence that is rampaging through this country.

National Sunshine Week

Last week was National Sunshine Week. What's that? Well, sunshine is what you need to see into the dark, secret corners of government. It is a project to promote the Freedom of Information Act and is even more important than ever with the government paranoia following 9/11.

Check out the website for National Sunshine Week and become active in keeping government open.

Time to get busy!

Global warming, which means more extreme weather and rising sea levels, is here according to this article: No Stopping Global Warming, Studies Predict. So what can one person do? Well, for a start you can get as economical as possible in your energy use. And you can get rid of that gas-guzzler and buy a hybrid. That's what I did last year and I'm getting 45 mpg. I bought the Honda Civic Hybrid and it's a great car. Honda now has the larger Honda Accord Hybrid available too.

So do whatever you can. If enough people act then we can do something about it.
