Woman Gives Birth, Smokes Bath Salts, Violence Ensues; What is Really Going on Here?

7 Jul

Picture from clevelandleader.com

What would possess a woman who had just given birth to smoke bath salts? I suppose I should ask Carla Murphy, who did just that, then stripped off her clothes, tried to bite a cop, and assaulted a nurse before being handcuffed and arrested. An injection of the anti-psychotic Haldol had no effect on the intoxicated new mom. What is going on here?

The “designer drug” is made of synthetic cathinones such as mephedrone (popular in the UK) and methylenedioxypyrovalerone or MDPV, (more popular in the U.S.), and produces a stimulant effect, similar to amphetamine and cocaine. Alarmingly, news reports are claiming it causes psychosis and violent behavior, including cannibalism or expressing the desire to bite and eat humans.

MDPV was first created in 1969 but was not sold until 2004, and mephedrone was first synthesized in 1929 but was not available for purchase until about 2007. I’m curious to know if, besides the never ending need to find legal mind-altering substances, there is a reason  that these drugs emerged for sale at these times.

From product to product, the chemical compositions can vary widely, and products with the same name can contain different compounds. “Designer drugs” are created using substances that have yet to be made illegal. Because they are so new, little is known about the drugs and their long-term effects, making them more dangerous . As soon as one “designer drug” is outlawed, another compound emerges to take its place, perpetuating a vicious cycle of dangerous substances seeping into society. I wonder if there may be a smaller market for such risky legal highs if drugs were decriminalized, or even legalized.

Roll-Your-Own Tobacco Stores May Cease To Exist Under New Law – Huffington Post

Roll-Your-Own Tobacco Stores May Cease To Exist Under New Law – Huffington Post

As members of Congress praised the transportation bill that passed last Friday, owners of some small tobacco shops cringed.

A measure sponsored by Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) and tucked inside the bill could spell the end for hundreds of “roll-your-own” tobacco stores that have sprouted up across the nation in recent years, shop owners and tobacco experts said.

The stores sell smokes at dramatically reduced prices by offering loose tobacco, which customers can convert into finished cigarettes using in-store machines, all for around half the cost of cigarettes from major brands like Marlboro.

The new federal law, set for President Obama’s signature, makes it harder for stores with roll-your-own cigarette machines to classify the tobacco they sell as pipe tobacco –- which is taxed at a lower rate than cigarette tobacco. It also forces the shops to obtain tobacco manufacturing permits, even though many only have retail zoning rights.

“This law is not designed for people to comply with,” said Phil Acordino, president of RYO Machines, which began manufacturing roll-your-own cigarette machines in 2008.

“It’s designed to put these people out of business,” he said. “They couldn’t get a manufacturer’s permit if they wanted to.”

Turkey’s Gul says downing of jet cannot be ignored | Reuters.

Turkey’s Gul says downing of jet cannot be ignored | Reuters.

(Reuters) – Turkish President Abdullah Gul said on Saturday it was not possible to ignore the fact that Syria had shot down a Turkish fighter jet and said everything that needed to be done following the incident would be done, Turkish media reported.

“It is not possible to cover over a thing like this, whatever is necessary will no doubt be done,” Gul told reporters from the central Anatolian city of Kayseri.

The Turkish military said it had lost contact with one of its F-4 fighter jets off the southern Turkish coast near Syria on Friday morning and Damascus later acknowledged it had shot the plane down.

Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan, who had been returning from a summit in Brazil when the news broke, called an emergency security meeting on his arrival in Ankara and in a statement his office said Ankara would act “decisively” once all the details had emerged.

Syria has said the Turkish aircraft was flying low and well inside Syrian territorial waters when it was shot down. Gul said it was normal for jets to briefly cross into foreign airspace and said a probe into the incident would look at whether in fact it was downed while in Turkish airspace.

“When we think of the speed of these jet planes while flying above the sea, crossing over borders for a short distance and then back again is a little bit routine,” said Gul.

He said because of the serious nature of the incident it was not possible at this stage to give any more detailed statement.

Asked whether Turkey was in contact with Syria over the incident, Gul said telephone contact had been made and said: “Because there is no security there, we withdrew our representatives from Syria. This does not mean there is no contact.”

Gul said Turkish and Syrian forces were still working together to search for the two missing crew of the aircraft.

Ankara, which had drawn close to Syria before the uprising against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, turned against the Syrian leader when he responded violently to pro-democracy protests inspired by popular upheavals elsewhere in the Arab world.

Turkey now gives refuge to the rebel Free Syrian Army on its frontier with Syria and is sheltering more than 30,000 Syrian refugees.

Ankara has previously floated the possibility of setting up some kind of safe haven or humanitarian corridor inside Syria, which would entail military intervention, but has said it would undertake no such action without U.N. Security Council approval.

Turkey has said, however, that Assad must step down.

Leading Cause of Unnatural Human Death in 20th Century is Democide – You Have No Right To Health or Government & Police Protection

18 Jun

WAKE UP!
NOW IS THE TIME. THE TIME IS NOW. RESIST.

From 1900 to 2000, the leading cause of non-natrual death in humans was democide, the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide, and mass murder.  Government has taken 662 million lives in just 100 years, not including those killed in active combat.  It is estimated that government has killed more than six times the number of people killed in all battles combined.

If all 262 million bodies were laid head to toe, with the average height being 5 feet, they would circle the earth ten times.  It’s as if there was a nuclear war, but the casualties were spread over the period of a century. (from www.hawaii.edu)

Many Americans have found themselves  fighting the government to be able to produce, sell, and eat the type of food they desire.  How can the government decide what type of food we sell, produce, and eat in a “free” country, especially if the food is making us healthier?  How can the government arrest people over unpasteurized milk? How free would you feel if you were told you have no right to being healthy, and  no right to allow your children to eat and drink the foods you feel are best for them?

John Stossel’s Illegal Everything   *~*MUST SEE*~*

Lemonade stands, raw milk, fast food, and recording police are things that could earn you not just fines, but also a place in jail.  The bitter irony rings in my head as I remember asking my mother at a very young age, “If drugs are illegal, why do they allow people to eat McDonald’s food?” Of course I was no more than eight years old and was only trying to keep others safe. On a field trip to the museum, we were shown over-sized models of clogged arteries, with french fries and hamburgers named as the culprit. At school, they told us drugs were bad. They also told us fast food was bad. I always knew I was a prophet…or was I just a child bending to engineered consent 20 years in advance?

In a dismissal letter dated April 26, 2010 from The United States District Court For The Northern District of Iowa Western Division concerning the right to purchase and consume unpasteurized milk, the court stated:

Plaintiffs’ assertion of afundamental right to their own bodily and physical health, which includes what foods they do and do not choose to consume for themselves and their families” is similarly unavailing because plaintiffs do not have a fundamental right to obtain any food they wish. In addition, courts have consistently refused to extrapolate a generalized right to “bodily and physical health” from the Supreme Court’s narrow substantive due process precedents regarding abortion, intimate relations, and the refusal of lifesaving medical treatment. See Glucksberg, 521 U.S. at 721 (warning that the fact “[t]hat many of the rights and liberties protected by the Due Process Clause sound in personal autonomy does not warrant the sweeping conclusion that any and all important, intimate, and personal decisions are so protected); see also Cowan v. United States, 5 F. Supp. 2d 1235, 1242 (N.D. Okla. 1998) (rejecting a claim that the plaintiff had the fundamental “right to take whatever treatment he wishes due to his terminal condition regardless of whether the FDA approves the treatment”). Finally, even if such a right did exist, it would not render
FDA’s regulations unconstitutional because prohibiting the interstate sale and distribution of unpasteurized milk promotes “bodily and physical health.”

I may be reading this wrong, but did the court rule that, if the right existed, prohibiting the sale and distribution of raw milk wouldn’t  be unconstitutional because the FDA’s regulations restricting food choice are to keep us safe and promote “bodily and physical health”?
