"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

Big "Pharma", Congress and the U.S. Supreme Court

(Find the full story at: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/03/22/betrayal-of-consumers-by-us-supreme-court-gives-total-liability-shield-to-big-pharma.aspx )

In February of this year the Supreme Court, by a 6 to 2 vote decided to protect drug companies from any legal liabilities for “harm caused by vaccines” that they make. This only applies to government mandated vaccines (like what you have to get your children for school). There is evidence that some vaccines could be made safer but the drug companies have refused to do so.

Some of the negative reactions to some vaccines are: paralysis, epilepsy, autism, asthma, diabetes, and mental retardation.

How could the Supreme Court do this? It seems that in 1982 the biggest parmaceutical companies (Wyeth, Lederle, Connaught, and Merck) told Congress that they would stop selling vaccines in America unless they were protected from lawsuits.

Parents now have no way to sue parmaceutical companies for harm caused to their children from government required vaccinations. But, on a brighter note, you’ll all be happy to know that a day after this decision the Big Court opened the legal channels so that you can sue automakers for “failing to make seat belts safer.” Go firgure!
