Preserve CHOICE, save your HEALTH

Try not 2 be consumed by the All-Encompassing CHAOS 

Protecting LIFE and HEALTH tops all

As we witness our ‘rights’ being trampled,  our voices being ignored and new assaults on our governmental protections being trashed in an ongoing daily circus-like manner. . . . we can begin to doubt our own sanity.  Of course,  that may be part of the Trump-plan – – to upset everyone’s sense of equilibrium so that we can’t easily see what’s going on.  Still, we must preserve our energy levels and tend to business and not allow still MORE rights to be yanked from our hands.  We must act here, WE MUST PERSEVERE.   Our freedom to be – exist as a free people demands that only we choose what we do, say, think, enjoy, eat or not eat. . . choose to protect our body and health with, by acting according to our own , individual needs, , decisions – period.   We are not chattel.   After all, this is America and have long been known for how we do business, treat people, honor our sacred commitments.  

We the people have NEVER,  ever decided to run our government like a business — dictated by the bottom line of profit.   As such, even the rules of governmental behavior dictates behaviors and customs to prevent even the odor of conflict of interest, let alone the blatant, overt disaster we see before us on a daily basis now.  The Trump conspiracy is so filled with deceit and lies  that it is actually – beyond belief for conscientious, ethical people to understand.  A majority of us were so disgusted by this man,  but he was successful in pulling off the biggest con in recorded history using “showmanship,” not intelligence or decency and we’re left holding the ashes as he destroys our honorably built nation, full of ideals, principles and legendary history.

Until a strong Trump opposition finds it’s courage, conviction and strength to overturn this horrific disaster by an effort to impeaching TRUMP and firing all his Wall-Street buddies (the swamp he was going to purge!) we must hold the line on the GO SIGNAL which the GOP feels they are entitled to pursue;  (voting rights, women’s rights of self determination, saving our world from the disastrous environmental path we are currently treading,  and also what poisons we are NOT WILLING to  put into our body, plus all the “regulations” which are in place to protect people from harm and injury).  

Enuff with fine-tuning the small-print of the “rules” – the ethics have always been there and described – – and aspirants have almost entirely always endeavored to honor and protect them because it works and it’s the right thing to do.  How can there be a need to determine if it has or hasn’t been done before?  It hasn’t!   Til now, it’s worked because everyone has honored it.  Don, the Con’s idea of  change isn’t what Americans asked for.  They wanted less Corporate control, but now it’s changing to total corporate control; also, wanted a fair shake, being that we’re equal under the law which applies to us all.  Fat chance! Instead of draining the swamp  – – Don has saturated it with even more cronies plus adding crocodiles  and vultures too.  Some of the appointees are intending to destroy the departments they are to be heading and most of the rest know nothing or little about their proposed jobs or duties thereof.  It’s ‘satiric’ if not outright evil.      The Donald has brought disaster to the White-house.  He promised a ‘shake-up, . . but must have had destruction in mind.  Get rid of him before he destroys all that we have built over a couple of hundred years  and all our allies and friends loose faith in us. 

Back to the point of this post .  .  .  .  (but wait – – Flynn has just resigned after all the dung which clung to him was inescapably revealed, and everybody was lying about  it, but proof is undeniable if not embarrassing to explain. He should be facing serious charges with his tattling to Russia before Trump even took office. . .but who’s left in Washington to do an honest and impartial job?)    

Anyway, with so much going on in this ‘Grand Scale’,  it’s dangerous to let this MANDATED vaccine thing get worse.  I stay tuned to NVIC, they do a fabulous job of keeping any who wish to know the facts rather than the “highly paid-for HYPE” (by the Pharmaceutical conglomerate. . . . e.g. modern-day gangsters and robbers)  They have more money than God and buy more rules, laws and regulations at will. . .nothin’ they can’t pay for and there’s always hands waiting to be filled (in congress, etal).     So check out the latest message from Barbara Loe Fisher of NVIC, to be informed and know what you can do to protect yourself and family.  It is tragic as millions of families know all too well, the way an infant’s developing immune system is hammered  before it’s  developed and had a chance to defend itself. . . .then be damaged and sometimes totally ruined, denying the life it was entitled to.  Not going to drone on again – you either get it or you don’t.  My point is no one has the right to force us to take into our bodies anything we choose to refuse.  We are not chattel!  We are free Americans and I stand for that !    Jan

Your States are calling the Shots!

so Fight like Hell and say NO

While we have been  embroiled sweating the small stuff (and there’s so much of it), . . . really BIG stuff has been going on around us and behind closed doors, for some time.  Not that we hadn’t noticed — — there’s just so much one can adequately do. From day one of Kasich’s term in office – ( a seeming nice man, well spoken, intelligent) I began noticing many changes — all to the detriment of the struggling working class.   In lock step, with total control, he and his legislature began cutting back on every thing which was in place to benefit common folk, like schools, health clinics, libraries; squashed the fine consumer’s council out of business with cuts to financing designed to do just that.  Drug pushers were a top priority, then the educational system – destroyed and replaced by Charter Schools with whom arrangements/contracts were put into place without even the least oversight.   With feeble attempts at seeking justice, these much touted  operators took the assets which they had demanded and fled, after the so-called failures.

Clinics were closed down,  public health issues are scandalous.  Too many Ohio babies don’t make it to age one, but the black babies have double the mortality rate.  The gerrymandering which has been done since before I even got here in ’94 — is so much worse now, I fear it will go on into  perpetuity.  So yes, there’s a lot to ponder.   Any of this can just be called ‘political’  ramblings.  But I see it as needs of real people, not being met – even with the law to back it up. .  e.g. Roe vs Wade – settled law, abortions ARE legal.   I get that Republicans  have sensitive, emotional – ethical standards, but it doesn’t seem to bother those standards as people are made to suffer in order for them to sleep better at nights.  Justice wan’t designed just for the affluent or fortunate,  but for every one of us.    All of this is important.  No question.  

But for me, “above and behind” every issue which can be named, stands HEALTH.  And one’s right to health and to be fully capable of protecting it.   We are not slaves or unthinking idiots . . .we are free,  born with rights which are being eroded.  No person should be mandated to allow vaccines to enter his body if he does not choose to allow it.  The vaccine issue is so corrupt    (no – not going into that again/check it out – everything is out there or here).  There has NEVER been proof that these hundreds of vaccines are safe.    But life itself is mirroring back to us how health standards have changed since the advent of these multiple vaccines became ‘standard procedure’. Autism – rare 50 or more years ago,  is rampant now along with other neurological disorders and learning disabilities.  

But instead of  addressing the issues raised by millions of families whose children have been injured and killed from all this – – insulting degradation has been hurled at them to denounce those parents and families whose lives have been ruined as rabble-rousers and simply, uninformed.    This is cruel, unjust — the act of bullies.  

The diminished state of health is due to more that just vaccines, to be sure.   It’s the highly organized medical system which is so profit driven that they haven’t practiced “good medicine” for decades now.  Most physicians are symptom manipulators  with  no time or inclination to ‘heal’ by seeking causation in order to remedy illness with proper guidance.  Hence, it is ’cause unknown.’  This affirms how lacking Medical schools are.   There are so many bright minds out there who DO  go on to learn of the many resources which have always been available to us.  It was in the original plans, including all those plants and herbs and clean, sparkling water.  We need hormonal balance,  plenty of enzymes and minerals and vitamins.  But we don’t need laboratory-made chemicals in our body for they are toxic to us and further burden an already suffering, weakened organism. The body heals itself when it receives what it needs.  

Our country needs to put medicine on an even keel by granting equal privilege to doctors who heal with herbs of the field and other specialties which we generally term  “alternative.” Can we even imagine what this could do to the American financial budget?   We’d save billions right off the bat.  Big PhRMA would get its comeuppance and most doctors would have to make some changes if they  want to stay alive.  Ya just can’t say that most illnesses are “idiopathic” and keep getting away with it.   And then, there’s the stuff about the food, our choices – right? Starts there.  

Forgive the ‘soapbox” my friends (you knew how much I try to simplify, but I keep getting carried away)  This post was started to advise you of serious stuff going on in most of the states.  Because I do subscribe (FREE) to NVIC, I get these emails and this one I wanted to share with you.   If this matters to you – SPEAK UP and tell your elected congressmen and senators.  And if it doesn’t matter to you – what are you doing on my blog?        Jan
