"Health Freedom Wins" Increase Worldwide...

"Health Freedom" is winning everywhere. Everywhere, that is, where strategy and tactical teams have taken the time to organize, make a plan, execute the plan, etc. Winning against "Big Pharma," and their sleazy minions, is becoming embarrassingly easy.
"Big Pharma" is losing. The New York Times reports:
TRENTON, N.J. -- Embattled drugmaker Merck & Co. said today that it will cut about 7,000 jobs, or 11 percent of its work force, and will close or sell five of its 31 manufacturing plants by the end of 2008 in the first phase of a reorganization strategy meant save up to $4 billion by the end of the decade.

I had to laugh when I also read in the New York Times ("Give me an Rx: Cheerleaders pep up drug sales"), this morning, that "Big Pharma" is becoming so desperate that they are now recruiting college "cheerleaders," to push drugs in Doctor's offices. I think, with this, that "Big Pharma" has finally had to resort to symbolism consistent with their own reality. Sarcasm intended.
Imagine, for a moment, a drug "cheerleader" leaping into the air, in front of a stunned staff in a Doctor's office, silk panties glowing, enhanced breasts flopping, plastic hair flying, screaming out "give me a 'V,' give me an 'I," give me an 'A,' give me a 'G,' give me an 'R,' give me another 'A.' "
Yup. "Big Pharma" has finally resorted to a proper depiction of their operation. "Hooters" in a hospital...
So, why is "Big Pharma" having to resort to this? Because they have nothing else left.
The "Health Freedom Movement," worldwide, like a hungry pack of wolves bringing down a much larger moose, is relentless. We organize, worldwide. The adage "think globally, act locally," is working.
How are we having so much success? We meet all over the world, at Health Freedom Expos - and we exchange information, train cadres, trade tactics, organize common campaigns, etc...
For instance: This coming weekend, December 2nd through the 4th, 2005, I'll be introducing world renowned independent research scientist, and best selling author, Hulda Regehr Clark PhD, at the Health Freedom Expo in Richmond, Virginia. Clark will be speaking both Saturday and Sunday at the conference, and will hold a workshop Sunday, after her presentation. She'll be doing a book-signing both days.

I'll be speaking, myself, on Sunday. And, I'll be joining famous health freedom advocates on the podium - I'll be there with Clinton Ray Miller, who will speak on "Win the forty year Medical Monopoly War." There are over thirty speakers. Cal Streeter MD will talk on "My Story: The Harassment of an Alternative Physician." Jeff Green, from the highly successful anti-fluoride movement will update everyone on current victories. One of those victories was in Bellingham, Washington where the pro-fluoride forces put together a "fake" citizens group, funded it in the amount of $350,000, up against a simple grass-roots (a little money, lots of people) group - and "the good guys" won the election 53% to 47% - even though the local newspaper was against them. Here's a note from anti-fluoride leader Paul Connett:
"As expected, by the very
clear trend over the previous two weeks, the citizens in Bellingham opposed to
fluoridation won despite being outspent 10 to 1. This was a magnificent
victory for the opponents and a crushing blow to the proponents in Washington
and beyond. If they cannot win the argument today in a situation where they
had 1) all that money; 2) a friendly local paper (the Bellingham Herald) and
3) all the national media exposure this referendum got, then I think the
writing is on the wall for this obsolete practice. The simple fact is that
they can win behind closed doors, where editors and politicians don't have the
time or inclination to do their own reading on the issue, but they cannot win
in the sunshine of informed public opinion. If people take the time to read
what is out there the proponents' arguments are seen for what they are:
nothing but smoke and mirrors (and dead rats!).
The proponents have always had the terrible task of persuading citizens that the government can do something to them that their individual doctor cannot (i.e. deliver medication to them without their informed consent) but the fatal blow for fluoridation is that the proponents can no longer keep the science hidden. With the internet making the latest peer-reviewed and published scientific studies readily available the proponents have nowhere to hide except their repeated mantra of "its safe and effective" and of course, their insulting dismissals of anyone who disagrees with them. Today, most educated people just will not accept the claims of "authorities" unless these are backed up with something more substantial."
We, in the Health Freedom Movement, intend to have "moose" for lunch.
