Good idea till we can do away with the false diagnoses and mind drugging of children by the Mental Health Industry.

Death, violence, erratic behavior and the suicide by mind drugs


Psychiatry: An industry of death

Why your kid is drugged in school

How it works:

The State Department of Education gets monies from the Federal Government (Disability) under a program called "IDEA" for each child diagnosed with a disability. A disability could be ADD/ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, Depression or any of the other mental diagnoses.

Who profits: The State Department of Education, the mental health and counseling Industry, the Pharmaceutical company and the money that is kicked back by lobbyists for politicians special interest and of course the legal profession.

All this at the cost of your child's Health and welfare.

Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness

Every so often Al Frances says something that seems to surprise even him. Just now, for instance, in the predawn darkness of his comfortable, rambling home in Carmel, California, he has broken off his exercise routine to declare that “there is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.” Then an odd, reflective look crosses his face, as if he’s taking in the strangeness of this scene: Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV), the guy who wrote the book on mental illness, confessing that “these concepts are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries.” For the first time in two days, the conversation comes to an awkward halt.

Pasted from < ;

There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a medical condition.

So much wrong with this so-called theory, so little time to rebutt it.

I still think that putting a gun in a school, even on a police officer, is STILL putting a gun into a school. But what choice do we have? I want my babies protected at all cost.

Ever tried to pull a gun from a police holster? They don't just come out, there is a technique to it. It requires practice. Don't believe me? Remember the officer killed by the Boston bomber? Even when he was dead, they couldn't figure out how to unholster his weapon. So rest assured that you can't just run up and take a gun from a cop when his or her back is turned. They definitely have thought that situation through, and have taken a lot of precautions against it.
