  1. Biggest sham ever. Its as if the guys who wrote the bill in Congress all have pet projects of manufacturing snake oils for big bucks. They know if they control the law making process they can force their crummy money making schemes down societies throats. The idea of forcing sales down peoples throats is how they essentially create a link from your bank account to theirs, and the feds/state general funds, Medicare and Medicaid tax dollars to their bank accounts against your will.


  2. Fuck off with the spam Nomadic. Sometimes I wonder if you’re an agent of some sort.

    Those who wish to help fight Murphy/20th Century Cures should call BOTH their Senators on Monday and request that they OPPOSE the 21st Century Cures amendment to HR 34. That’s all you have to do, unless you choose to do more.

    On Sunday, December 4, 2016 at 9PM Eastern, call in to (267)521-0167 to be part of the program. This is an urgent call for you to speak out to your legislators.

    TO LISTEN IN LIVE: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/talkwithtenney/2016/12/05/emergency-senate-vote-on-amendment-to-hr-34-is-near-ideas-for-legislators

    On this show, Yvonne Smith, Lauren Tenney, and others will discuss things that you can talk about with your Senators AND Representatives concerning the scam of amending the Tsunami Warning, Education, and Research Act of 2015 H.R. 34 as the 21st Century #CuresAct amendment, which includes awful versions of the Murphy Bills and multiple other bills that Senators are still attempting to amend before a vote. They are pushing this through and if you can believe, Senators are even still adding amendments.

    Senate will take up the proposed amendments on Monday, December 5, 2016, or earlier.



  4. Call BOTH your Senators BEFORE NOON TODAY (Monday). Tell them to OPPOSE THE 2!ST CENTURY CURES ACT BEING APPENDED TO H.R. 34. FURTHER, tell them you want MURPHY’S SO-CALLED “MENTAL HEALTH” PROVISIONS FROM HR 4626 REMOVED from the “Cures” package.
