Now Bush wants to test every American for mental illness--including you! And guess who will create the tests?
By Jordanne Graham

Next month, President Bush plans to unveil a broad new mental health plan called the “New Freedom Initiative.” Never mind that it couldn’t have less to do with freedom; if you’re a thinking American, this initiative should scare the hell out of you.

The New Freedom Initiative proposes to screen every American, including you, for mental illness. To this end, the president established a New Freedom Commission on Mental Health, to study the nation’s mental health delivery service and make a report. It’s interesting to note that many on the staff appointed to the Commission have served on the advisory boards of some of the nation’s largest drug companies.

The commission reported that “despite their prevalence, mental disorders often go undiagnosed,” so it recommended comprehensive mental health screening for “consumers of all ages,” including preschool children because “each year, young children are expelled from preschools and childcare facilities for severely disruptive behaviors and emotional disorders.”

Children and school personnel will be the first to be screened. The panel concluded that schools are in “key positions” to screen the 52 million students and six million adults who work at the schools. By doing this, the commission expects to flush out another six million persons not now receiving treatment. But who will decide the screening criteria? Bush and his people? The drug companies? What are their qualifications?

One recommendation of the commission was that the screening be linked with “treatment and supports,” using “specific medications for specific conditions.” It is no coincidence that the treatments recommended for specific conditions are the newest state-of-the-art treatments that will bring in the most revenues for the drug companies. One of these emerging treatments is a capsule implanted within the body that delivers doses of medication without the patient having to swallow pills or take injections. If a government wanted to exert control of its citizens, think of the implications of using this device.

*Sigh* Never have I seen such an irrational, overblown fear of a little Texan man. You'd think we're in a Bruckheimer movie...

The story was picked up by AP and Reuters, so it is now available on many newspaper's websites, etc.

I chose this source because I thought it would be fun to count the minutes before someone tried to deflect the story away by trying to discredit the source.

It's just another numb-brained program/policy that GWB's team have put together. It is yet another demonstration of how out of touch they are with the public.

When I post a topic like this, those of you who don't know me assume I'm hiding under the bed, afraid of what our big bad government will do to me. Those that do know me, know that I'm laughing out loud about the stupity of the issue and how GWB cannot control his own PR machine.

The source is paralyzed with fear over conspiracy theories and mind control....are you serious? If I put an article from Fox News I'm sure harsher words would be used...

"how GWB cannot control his own PR machine."

This is nothing new...

Hmmm... we wouldn't want people who know how to treat mental illness involved with a Commission on Mental Health, now would we? After all, this is a government panel. They have standards, you know....  Insane

Given this bombshell, I suppose we'll hear next that the USA Freedom Corps is only a front for the New Hitlerjugend. After all, Al Gore has informed us that the Bush administration is composed of "brown shirts" trying to set up gulags.

*Sigh* Never have I seen such an irrational, overblown fear of a little Texan man. You'd think we're in a Bruckheimer movie...

True, true... as I said of Michael Moore in another thread, it's almost funny in a sad sort of way. I think the far left needs to turn off the Fahrenheit 9/11 and Doctor Strangelove reruns before they break out the tinfoil hats. And they accuse Bush supporters of paranoia and fearmongering?

There is no hidden agenda.

I said it was stupid (although I mispelled it).

That is why I posted it.

No secrets here.

I think Diamond just set up a little trap for all the conservative nuts on the fourm-and they walked right into it.

It proves once again, that you guys are so far up a certain cavity of George W. Bush, you'll excuse or support anything the guy does, without question, and then turn your wrath on anyone who dare not genuflect to the guy.

So predictable. So pathetic.

I think you're giving him way too much credit.

"It proves once again, that you guys are so far up a certain cavity of George W. Bush, you'll excuse or support anything the guy does, without question, and then turn your wrath on anyone who dare not genuflect to the guy."

Did you read the article he posted? It's garbage! Let me show you this gem:
"One of these emerging treatments is a capsule implanted within the body that delivers doses of medication without the patient having to swallow pills or take injections. If a government wanted to exert control of its citizens, think of the implications of using this device."

You have GOT TO BE KIDDING.
