Bush to screen population for mental illness
Sweeping initiative links diagnoses to treatment with specific drugs

President Bush plans to unveil next month a sweeping mental health initiative that recommends screening for every citizen and promotes the use of expensive antidepressants and antipsychotic drugs favored by supporters of the administration. (snip)

Well shades of Nazi Germany knock me down! Does Bush Light want to start a revolution? The Imperial Federal Government under various alleged President wanna-bees have done some outrageous things in the past but this is way too far.

There is a side issue which has already been decided under the Klinton Adminsitration by Jannett “the Butcher” Reno and that is to Federally define who is mentally ill. Christians and gun owners top the list. Add to that list children with a high IQ and/or lots of energy, and/or who wiggle too much in the classroom already receive Psychosomatic Drugs like Ritalin. Of course anyone who would disagree with the government has to be mentally ill.

Who could these “supporters of the administration be”? “Naw”, you couldn’t mean the Pharmaceutical companies could you? “Yeppers” , the Pharmaceutical companies!

The drug companies have given millions if not billions to get their drugs into public use. The best and possibly most dangerous of these drugs is Ritalin, chemically almost identical to coc aine and the other similar mind bending drugs. Though medically there is no such thing as ADD (attention deficit disorder) Ritalin is regularly given to children and pushed by the leftist NEA teachers union. By the way parents, for your knowledge, if your child has ever taken any of these type drugs, you can forget getting in the military, they will not take anyone who has ever been on Psychosomatic Drugs.

Do you want to be forced to take something, which could easily damage you forever just because some drug company helps politicians who in turn pass a law to help the drug companies sell their product, by forcing it on people? At taxpayer expense of course!

I ask, where is your freedom and liberty? Where are your rights? This goes completely against at least three or four areas in the Bill of Rights.

As usual, the American public aka “We the Sheeple” will go on about their business doing their thing while our once great country continues declining from a Republican form of government of laws into a Commie/nazi Hybrid Government with the worst of both. Oh, before I forget, you can add some kind of identifying medium like the Verichip to the recipe too, after all, we will need to know where all these loonies are. Oh, and everyone will be looney!

Hi Ghostwolfemoon,

There's a thread on this here :-

although your article there isn't mentioned. I have to agree with you, it's a well disguised bit of legislation that both endangers civil liberties and helps boost drug companies profits. I've had experience with minor depression / medication in the past, and know of others who have more serious problems. One thing is for certain, the doctors and physiologists don't always know best.

Diagnosis for minor mental illness is literally done with not much more than a "checklist" of symptoms, and some councilling sessions. The problem is that it's easy to categorize different flavours of minor mental illness into "syndromes", such as ADD, depression, bi-polar disorder etc.etc.
particularly, when your plan of treatment involves drugs of various sorts known to "reduce" or otherwise influence the very symptoms you are measuring in the diagnosis.

Others are arguing that it's no more than an attempt to update and improve the system to make it more "inclusive", and that there is nothing sinister in the plan. I guess it's up to the US voters to decide for themselves!

Gee, go figure? Bush and Co are supported by the Drug Companies, in fact part of Bush and Co are Drug Company people. So now Bush wants to make it so more and more and more and more drugs are pushed on the people. More drugs, more money. And it is true, I can't join the Air Force or Marines due to the fact I use to take the "Big R". And as stated, it appears kids who act like kids are all psychotic. "Oh, that kid doesn't want to sit and listen about Quadradic Equations and how 500 years ago the King of England was doing this and this. He must have mental problems, Drug HIM!" Well, Bush is the Dictator of America. I wouldn't be surprised if the ballots in Florida and Texas and other southern states just have one name, Bush. That way the old people in Florida and Mexicans that can't speak spanish wouldn't get confusd and vote for a democrat or an independant like they did in 2000.
