Common Sense, Snake Oil


“Any need for a chemical or drug, be the need be derived via mind or body can be considered an addiction.  Creating that need and addiction is the job of modern day advertisers, kinfolk to the old snake oil salesmen that once sold cure-all elixirs filled with alcohol, opium, heroine, cocaine, etc.  Drug companies spend billions of dollars in advertising annually for the chance to catch you with your eyes closed and your pants down.  Their ads are plastered all over the internet and on TV.  You see them in magazines and on billboards.  Men (presumably with erectile dysfunction) sit around 24/7 thinking up new ads to get you hooked mentally or physically on one of their “products”.  Annually, only a handful of innocent people are killed as a result of police brutality.  The police are kittens and lambs compared to these snake oil crackers.  Drug companies kill thousands upon thousands of innocent people annually with their poisonous elixirs.  If you feel a need to vent your anger, pick a worthy opponent like Phizer.  Or how about Monsanto? Most policemen I have met are great guys and gals.  They are your friends, they’re not your enemy.”

Common Sense Irrationality

“It is completely and utterly irrational that millions of children could and do get sedated through the prescribing of psychiatric medications. When the so called most learned members of a society promote and carry out this mass drugging of their offspring, that segment of society doing the drugging could rightfully be called insane.”

Common Sense; 1) Ordinary good sense or sound practical judgement. 2) normal intelligence. 3) decisions guided by reason and principle.

“Who the Author of this Production is, is wholly unnecessary to the public, as the Object for Attention is the DOCTRINE ITSELF, not the MAN. Yet it may not be necessary to say, that he is unconnected with any Party, and under no sort of influence public or private, but the influence of reason and principle.” Thomas Paine, Feb.14th, 1776.

I make no claims that I am anything but a person with ordinary good sense. I am not attempting to impress anyone. I did not attend a University to acquire higher education degrees or important titles to add to my name. I am simply a sentient being with a full set of faculties. In other words, I have two eyes, two ears and all my other innate senses fully intact. So having, my inherent nature to know right from wrong is in full force. I have a sound mind, a stout conscious and I am capable of a wide spectrum of human emotion. It is all these things and more that are the river that runs deep and foremost, through each and every human being on Earth. We all possess an innate common sense. So how does one’s home, one’s job, his city, his nation and world get so out of kilter as to foster abuse, injustice, and other dire things such as the psychotropic drugging of millions of innocent school age children? How could anyone with any common sense get himself or herself involved in such nonsensical actions? What truly caring psychiatrist or doctor would prescribe these mind-altering drugs to himself, let alone give them to a defenseless child. This is bad behavior by misinformed adults trying to resolve a falsely perceived or imagined bad behavior in children. The child is just being a child, they do not have ADHD, abnormal depression, Bi-polar or any other number of absurdly false labels being bestowed on them. They do not need mind-altering drugs. They need patience, communication, strong parenting, good nutrition and diet, care and proper guidance in school and by health professionals. What is happening instead is unconscionable and criminal. Bottom line, it has become all about the money. Our society has been and is under a relentless barrage of advertising tactics funded by the pharmaceutical industry. It is meant to supplant our common sense with a nascence belief in psychotropics. They are telling you and your children that they have ADHD, depression, Bi-polar disorder and a multitude of other non-existent mental disorders. Their lobbying tactics and endless stream of dollars have already bought Washington. We are on our own folks.

Just what the hell is a psychotropic drug anyway? Let’s define our terms here.

Psychotropic Drug: 1) (of a drug) acting on the mind. 2) a narcotic or stimulant substance or influence. (PSYCHO- + Gk trope; turning

So all drugs in this class act on and influence the mind. That is what they do. They turn the mind away from normal function. They do not kill bacteria, ward off viruses, or in anyway act as a healing agent for the body or mind. They are psychotropic. Many of them anesthetize or deprive one of physical or mental sensation. They turn off appropriate emotional responses and skew the human conscience. A formula for disaster if I’ve ever seen one. Just look at all the recent shootings in our schools and anyone with common sense can see the correlation. These kids are on mind altering drugs and in most cases a deadly mixture of several all at once. These are the facts folks.

Let’s take this a little further and define narcotic and stimulant.

Narcotic: 1) (of a substance) inducing drowsiness, sleep, stupor, or insensibility. 2) (of a drug) affecting the mind. 3) of or involving narcosis (Gk narkotikos (AS NARCOSIS)

Narcosis: 1) a state of insensibility. 2) the working or effects of narcotics. (Gk narkosis f. narkoo; make numb)

Stimulant: that stimulates, esp. bodily or mental activity. (L. stimulare stimulant- urge, goad)

By nature narcotics induce a state of insensibility and numb the ability of a person to reason. By nature a stimulant urges or goads mental activity. Put two and two together and common sense will tell us that on one hand you have insensibility and on the other hand that insensibility is being stimulated. Compound the effects of these drugs with the yet undeveloped minds of kids and you can predict the results. Yes, these school shootings are unreasonable, but common sense clearly points its finger at the pharmaceutical industry as the root cause. Common sense does not put the blame on a child or a gun. You can take away the gun and it’ll be replaced by a pipe bomb, take away the bomb and it’ll be replaced by a Molotov cocktail, ad infinitum as long as the drugging remains in place. Common sense could predict, take away the pharmaceutical pipeline and these violent acts will diminish considerably.
