‘Take Back Your Power’ event scheduled today in Frostburg

Today from 5 to 8 p.m. at the John Bambacus Room in the Frostburg Library on East Main St. and again on April 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. the Pure Water Committee of Western Maryland Inc. will be hosting a two-part series called “Take Back Your Power.”

Recently, Dr. Ben Carson from John Hopkins noted that five medical doctors were among the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

One signer was Benjamin Rush, M.D. His visionary statement at the time of the framing of the Constitution haunts us today. “Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic, and have no place in a republic. The Constitution of this Republic should make special provisions for medical freedom as well as religious freedom.”

Today we stand in the doorway of the path of this medical despotism. When political and corporate collectivist conspired together in writing of Obamacare they took a system that needed some basic market reforms to its delivery system and pushed it into this socialist utopian framework that will bankrupt this country and leave the healthcare system in complete disarray.

The common U.S. citizen has voiced opposition to these plans, but to no avail. As a consumer activist in health care related matters it has become increasing clear that educating people on how to maintain good health, while dispelling some medical dogmas is going to be important for us until the time that political winds change and true market based reforms in healthcare are adopted.

The first presentation is on health, nutrition, cancer. The second presentation is the effect that SSRI drugs are having in our culture as a whole and the Second Amendment. Both presentations are free and open to the public.

A discussion will follow with handouts and reference materials will be available. Educating yourself is critical in maintaining your health and health freedom. Please come and join us.

  • Don’t be too quick to legalize marijuana use

    Perhaps our society should consider some facts before jumping on the bandwagon for legalizing recreational marijuana use.

  • Why have all the visionaries in our government disappeared?

    In his Jan. 11, 1944, State of the Union Address, President Franklin D. Roosevelt suggested that the nation had come to recognize, and should now implement a “second bill of rights.” His argument was that the “political rights” guaranteed by the Constitution and Bill of Rights had “proved inadequate to assure us equality in the pursuit of happiness.”
    Roosevelt’s remedy was to declare an “economic bill of rights.” which would guarantee:

  • Thanks to the unknown patriot who has kept the flag flying

    I drive back and forth from Little Orleans to Cumberland five days a week to go to work. I want to thank the unknown person that has kept the American Flag flying above the pine tree on the hill by Interstate 68 on Polish Mountain. That flag reminds me daily of those who have served our country and are serving us now so that we can have the freedoms we have.

  • Allergy shots to bee venom truly life-saving

    We read with great concern the reader commentary from July 1 in the Cumberland Times-News by the Rev. James Blubaugh and were very relieved that he survived his anaphylactic reaction to his wasp sting. Unfortunately, at least 40 to 50 people annually in the U.S. do not survive such reactions.

    Cumberland’s Mayor Brian Grim, when asked by a citizen about discontinuing water fluoridation recently, stated that he hasn’t made up his mind on this issue and would like to open it up to the rest of the council to possibly reviewing the information currently available.

  • Survey backs student free expression

    In a survey released by the Newseum Institute’s First Amendment Center, a growing majority of Americans say high school journalists should be free to explore controversial subjects without prior approval, but 38 percent say the First Amendment goes too far in the rights it guarantees, up 25 percent from the 2012 survey.

  • Australians glad to have government health care

     I am sure you are familiar with statements like these: “Government- sponsored health insurance is nothing but a socialist takeover. The freedom of citizens is at stake.” “It promises nothing but higher taxes and lower standards.”
