New Perspective From Council Candidate

"Marquardt [. . .] says he feels that fresh leadership and new perspectives will help move the city forward [and] the change needs to respect the different cultures that pervade Cambridge’s neighborhoods." Cambridge like Harvard is as diverse as can be, including ensuring that all different cultures think alike, and excluding persons with disabilities from full participation. "Marquardt hopes to look to the universities for better planning in city council, mimicking the academic process of making long-term plans." The City already mimicks Harvard increasing salaries of City Manager and Deputy Managers above any reasonable amount and raising taxes (like tuition) for those who pay the salaries. "He believes if the universities offered more graduate housing, the middle class families might be able to afford to live in Cambridge." Housing restricted to university affiliates is segregated housing, and eliminates potential land use for "affordable housing" whatever that is. Cambridge is no longer a city for "the Middle Class" whatever that is. Cambridge is now an elite academic enclave with low income taxpayer subsidized ghettos for poor uneducated people to keep the police busy.

Citizens Don't Trust Government? Ya think?

Voters and taxpayers don't trust the government? Huh? Is that news? Look at the kind of people who get elected to office these days. Roger Morris in his book Partners in Power about the Clintons observed that the preferred candidate for leadership, elected and appointed are weak persons with relaxed rectitude, the kind that goes along to get along. Not all leaders are that yet. But most are and soon it will be all. How many Judge Mark Wolfs are there in the USA? Weak officials allow criminals to use government mechanisms to steal taxpayer funds. Without law enforcement mechanisms keeping the government honest the corruption gets worse. Voters remain silent about 19 homicides by an FBI informant now on trial in Boston US Court. They remain silent about a frame-up of four white men for murder by the same Boston FBI. Local police informants and FBI informants are out of control stealing from, harassing and making life miserable for government critics. Most voters fear retaliation from government agencies which is itself a violation of state and US laws. The same corrupt officials enforce those laws. Why are these concerned academics silent at the prestigious Kennedy School of Government about police and FBI corruption? How many academics at Harvard work with the corrupt officials?

Surprise! Liberal Journalists Are Biased. Duh!

David Oaks released an emergency alert (copied below) regarding a (conference dated 2010 and) report posted on the Huffington Post web pages. He asks (in his original alert) "That passes as news coverage?"

My question is, Where have you been for the last generation? Journalists, many of whom are psychiatric patients willingly taking psychiatric drugs, are incapable of skepticism regarding psychiatry. Journalists, lawyers, politicians, courts, judges and caregivers do not question any of the assumptions of a group of people who act as if their genes have been cleansed of mendacity, greed and sadism. Ever wonder how such irrational laws were created by state and US legislative bodies?

One major barrier to skepticism by journalists and public officials about psychiatry is that they believe that NAMI is an advocacy group for the rights of mental patients. They are unaware that NAMI is a front organization for the drug companies, and funded by them to promote, advocate for, more taxpayer funded drug treatment. NAMI says they are concerned about stigma, but only in so far as it inhibits more treatment, and taxpayer funding. The stigma toward those who willingly submit to the psychiatric control freak drug pushers, are omitted from their concern. NAMI ignores state and US laws that prohibit unlawful discrimination. They do not promote employment for persons accused of mental illness. They are solely focused on promoting more drug treatment. Why not educate your members, public officials, journalists and alleged professionals about that fact?

The Huffington Post Carries Attack on "Alternatives 2010" Mental Health Conference

ACTION: Ask Editors of Huffington Post For Fair Coverage of Mental Health

by David W. Oaks, Director, MindFreedom International

ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA: Yesterday, the sound of a rare thunderstorm resounded over the hotel ballroom roof as journalist Robert Whitaker keynoted to the Alternatives 2010 conference, where more than 1,000 mental health consumers and psychiatric survivors have registered.

Whitaker delivered a message worthy of the thunder, based on his book Anatomy of an Epidemic. He provided scientific data that the psychiatric profession has grossly deceived the public for decades about the risks and benefits of psychiatric drugs.


You'd think a blog like The Huffington Post would be intrigued about how a marginalized population has found its own voice and delivers peer-delivered services.

You won't find such news in The Huffington Post. Instead, as they have many times before, The Huffington Post ran another diatribe by extremist D. J. Jaffe, which you can read here:

In his Huffington Post blog, Jaffe has repeatedly called for making it easier and easier to get court orders to force us to take psychiatric drugs, and he does that again in The Huffington Post "news coverage" of Alternatives 2010. It turns out Jaffe never even made an appearance at the conference that he "covered."

You can try try adding your comment directly to the debate on Jaffe's blog entry by logging in on The Huffington Post at the above link.

However, I have submitted two comments to this Huffington Post in blog in the past two days, and neither one has been approved by their editors so far. You can read my posts, which have apparently been suppressed, on MFI's blog here:


Ask a simple, strong, civil question. You can do this action without registering on their web site.



A sample question to ask The Huffington Post -- though your own words are best:

"Dear Huffington Post Editors: You have bloggers covering mental health. But why don't you give prominent coverage to any representative from the mental health consumer and psychiatric survivor movement? Doesn't this constituency deserve a voice? The disability movement has a saying, 'Nothing About Us, Without Us.' If you carry Jaffe's hate speech, then what about the other side of the story?"

CONTACT The Huffington Post here:

Because this Huffington Post contact page has no exact feedback form to Huffington editors, we imagine both the following e-mail addresses could be relevant:

Also, there's a web form there for 'corrections,' and Jaffe has a lot of errors you can mention. It figures, since apparently he did not even attend the event he's 'reporting' on.

Please forward this alert to others who care about media bias in mental health.

Cambridge City Councilors Clueless and Spineless

It appears that the Cambridge City Council which repeatedly demonstrates its cavalier attitude toward state and US laws has again violated the MA Open Meetings Law. The council is not only clueless about their own rules and Robert's Rules of Order (a requirement of Cambridge City Council meetings) but they are also clueless about the Open Meetings Law. Crony government rules in Cambridge due to clueless voters who elect the weak politicians with relaxed rectitude. Exceptions to the Open Meetings Law allowing executive sessions does not include legal matters that have been settled. Below are the two sections which mention litigation.

Open Meetings Law Mass General Laws Chapter 39, Section 23B


Executive sessions may be held only for the following purposes:
[. . .]
(3) To discuss strategy with respect to collective bargaining or litigation if an open meeting may have a detrimental effect on the bargaining or litigating position of the governmental body, to conduct strategy sessions in preparation for negotiations with nonunion personnel, to conduct collective bargaining sessions or contract negotiations with nonunion personnel.
[. . .]
(9) To meet or confer with a mediator, as defined in section twenty-three C of chapter two hundred and thirty-three, with respect to any litigation or decision on any public business within its jurisdiction involving another party, group or body, provided that: (a) any decision to participate in mediation shall be made in open meeting session and the parties, issues involved and purpose of the mediation shall be disclosed; and (b) no action shall be taken by any governmental body with respect to those issues which are the subject of the mediation without deliberation and approval for such action at an open meeting after such notice as may be required in this section.

ACT For America Action Alert OCT 26 2011

[Alert sent by ACT America]

Hotel cancels anti-sharia event

Please contact the hotel to express

your disapproval!

The Hutton Hotel in Nashville has abruptly canceled an event scheduled for November 11th hosted by the Sharia Awareness Action Network and the Tennessee Freedom Coalition. One of the scheduled speakers for the event is an ACT! for America chapter leader who will be addressing issues such as grassroots organizing.

According to a news article:

A Nashville hotel has canceled its contract with an anti-Shariah conference out of fear the event could attract protests and disrupt business.

This is the second hotel to take such outrageous action in the past week. It’s clear they are knuckling under to complaints and threats from organizations such as CAIR, the Council on American-Islamic Relations. What’s more, the hotels are in effect capitulating to sharia law provisions that suppress free speech.

We cannot allow this unacceptable and outrageous action to go unchallenged. We urge you to contact the hotel, and respectfully but firmly, voice your disapproval. Let the hotel know you will never stay there unless it reverses this decision, and that you will pass the word to friends and family encouraging them to do the same.

We recommend you contact the hotel by phone. The reason is that it’s easier for them to ignore you if you email. A deluge of phone calls will make it abundantly clear to them that the decision they made will be costly to them.

Please phone the hotel at 615.340.9333 and ask to speak to Steven Andre, the hotel manager or, if that person is unavailable, ask to speak to someone who handles public relations. If the phone is busy, try again later.

If you absolutely can’t place a call, send a firm, but respectful, email Mr. Andre at sandre@huttonhotel.com.

And if you haven’t yet signed the pledge of support to protect your state from sharia law, please add your name today!

USCA 9th Circuit Permits Fraud to Continue


October 25, 2011


Jim Gottstein



9th Circuit Allows Fraud to Continue;
PsychRights Expects To File for Rehearing

The United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit today affirmed the dismissal of the Medicaid Fraud Case, United States ex rel Law Project for Psychiatric Rights v. Matsutani, et al., because the Government knows of the fraud and isn't doing anything about it.

Jim Gottstein, president of the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights®) and the attorney handling the case said, "This decision essentially immunizes all similar past and future fraud from whistleblower cases in the 9th Circuit. We think the decision is wrong on the law and expect to file a petition for rehearing, but the main problem is the government is allowing this massive fraudulent scheme to continue."

Medicaid restricts coverage of outpatient drugs to those that are for a "medically accepted indication," but the drug companies induce doctors to prescribe harmful, ineffective psychiatric drugs to children and youth that are not for medically accepted indications in a fraudulent scheme that can be depicted as follows.


The Department of Justice has recovered billions of dollars from drug companies for causing false claims at Step 1 of the Fraudulent Scheme, but have declined intervention involving defendants at Steps 2 & 3. "This means that the drug companies pay their fines, cap their liability and continue to rake in the profits under the fraudulent scheme as the doctors continue to issue these uncovered prescriptions," said Mr. Gottstein.

To address this problem, in July of 2009, the PsychRights® launched its Medicaid Fraud Initiative with a model Qui Tam Complaint for people to use around the country.

Since then the government has declined to intervene in the Alaska case, an Illinois case and a Wisconsin case involving this fraudulent scheme.

In 2007-2008, there were two suspicious letters on the letterhead of the agency charged with administering the Medicaid program, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), that assert Congress did not limit outpatient drug coverage under Medicaid to those used for a medically accepted indication. This is directly contrary to the formal position of the United States Government, taken in a number of False Claims Act cases against drug companies, such as the United States Statement of Interest in Polansky v. Pfizer.

"It is hard to escape the conclusion that the Department of Justice has succumbed to the politics of holding doctors accountable for their fraudulent conduct," Mr. Gottstein said, "The result is children's' health and even lives are being sacrificed on the altar of drug company profits."


The Law Project for Psychiatric Rights is a public interest law firm devoted to the defense of people facing the horrors of forced psychiatric drugging and electroshock. PsychRights is further dedicated to exposing the truth about psychiatric interventions and the courts being misled into ordering people subjected to these brain and body damaging drugs against their will. Due to the massive growth in psychiatric drugging of children and youth, PsychRights has made attacking this problem a priority. Extensive information about these dangers, and about the tragic damage caused by electroshock, is available on the PsychRights web site: http://psychrights.org/.

September 25, 2010 Jim Gottstein



Trial Judge Tosses Medicaid Fraud Cases Because Government Officials Are Allowing the Fraud to Continue

On September 24, 2010 Alaska Federal District Court Judge Timothy Burgess dismissed two Medicaid Fraud cases brought by the Law Project for Psychiatric Rights (PsychRights®) because government officials already know about the industry-wide fraud and are allowing it to continue.

[T]he Government already "has pursued False Claims Act cases and achieved extremely large recoveries against drug companies for causing the presentment of claims to Medicaid for prescriptions of psychotropic drugs that are not for medically accepted indications, including Geodon and Seroquel for use in children and youth." Thus, . . . the Government already knows about the conduct . . . . [1]

These large settlements, amounting to billions of dollars in fines are just a cost of doing business for the drug companies, doctors still prescribe these drugs that are not reimbursable under Medicaid, and Medicaid continues to pay these fraudulent claims. In spite of this, the judge ruled PsychRights and Daniel Griffin do not have whistleblower status because the government knows about the continuing fraud.

Jim Gottstein, PsychRights' president and the attorney handling the case, said, "We believe the judge misinterpreted the law and we expect to appeal. One of the reasons Congress passed the False Claims Act allowing private parties to sue on behalf of the government to recover for fraud was to address the problem of federal officials refusing to stop fraud against the government."

Lawyers Roles in Homicide-Suicides

Once again misguided civilians and journalists have a way to blame more victims. Divorces create opportunities for murder-suicides by unhappy litigants. Why no scrutiny of the role of lawyers causing these needless deaths? Lawyers stir up and thrive on controversies. They do not try to mitigate disputes. They exacerbate opposing claims. Just as psychiatrists cause homicides, suicides and violence with their mind destroying chemical presecriptions, lawyers use their knowledge of the laws to drive people apart and into battle. Lawyers are at war 24/7, and want your money to finance it.

“We thought it would be cool to go down to Occupy Boston to talk to people to see if they would be interested in getting involved in the political process,” said Amanda E. McGowan ’13, who chairs the IOP’s National Campaign program, which focuses on increasing voter registration on campus.
[. . .]
members of the IOP were surprised to find that many occupiers were not interested in voting,

“Some were already registered but did not want to vote. Others were not registered and did not want to be involved in the political system,” McGowan said.

"Be wary of the roles you play and the acts you put on, because you tend to fulfill the labels you accept. Above all, remember: The more harm you cause the more hate you feel, and the more kindness you deal into the world the more you come to love the people you help."

Students Don't Know Much About History

[From article]
"What is so troubling, then, about growing student ignorance of history and civics is that the American way of life depends on each new generation embracing our founding ideals and committing themselves to self-government. In this regard, our freedom to pursue happiness is far more fragile than many Americans might imagine."

Misguided Goals

A demand missing from this protest is for the police and journalists to stop referring to suspects as "dirt bags, and "scum bags." Dehumanizing their suspects makes it OK to beat, to deny rights and to disrespect the persons being arrested. As pointed out in another article about the difference between the rule of law in the US with regard to Samson and how the charming Arab spring youth hacked Khadafy to death is a more extreme case of what Boston Police do. Omitted from their agenda is how police treat persons with disabilities. Police love to target persons accused of mental illness because no one will defend them. Taxpayer funded lawyers and taxpayer funded human services corporations, fail to protect them. Another omission is the fact that black police are as brutal as white police. It is not their race or skin color but their integrity that matters. Calling for more minority police suggests that they are morally superior to whites. That is unfortunately a fantasy. Finding integrity among public officials is a rarity these days.

Giving The FBI Another Pass

How easily we forget. This is the second article about the sentencing of Samson to death. Neither article mentioned the role of the delightful Boston FBI, those charming lawmen dedicated to the rule of law. When Samson called to turn himself in before the murders, that know-it-all agent hung up on Samson. He said it was inadvertent. But what if it was because the agent did not believe what Samson said. The FBI has a long history of arrogance and of ignoring reliable reports about crime. During the Bulger reign of terror Connolly was there to intercept complaints about Bulger's crimes. The civilians were killed by Bulger with help of the FBI. As far back as 1963 there were several reports (See, e.g., John Davis, Mafia Kingfish) from different men from different parts of the USA about a plan to kill the President. The FBI ignored all of those reports because they believed the callers were mentally ill. So what has changed? Only ordinary citizens are getting killed due to FBI negligence. Why hasn't any FBI agents been indicted for these murders too? Unlike the FBI Samson does not have a taxpayer funded PR flack to help plead his case before the journalists. The FBI uses character assassination broadcast by their army of criminal informants to discredit any and every critic. How many journalists have the courage to question the statements of the FBI who have been repeated proven in courts to lie not only to the public but also to the courts.

Hopelessly Corrupt US Government

[From article]
"Since purposely ignoring death threats made against Dobyns, deliberately trafficking thousands of weapons into Mexico and repeatedly lying under oath, William Newell has been promoted to a position within ATF in Washington D.C. William McMahon is no different. He too was promoted and now oversees the ATF’s Office of Professional Responsibility and Security Operations or in other words, ATF’s Internal Affairs Division. George Gillett, who orchestrated the frame job against Dobyns was moved out of the ATF Phoenix office following his heavy involvement in Operation Fast and Furious and is now assigned as ATF’s liason to the U.S. Marshall’s Service in Washington D.C.
[. . .]
Throughout the years it has become clear that ATF is more interested in protecting and promoting the corrupt practices of the men who have made careers profiting off of corruption, obstruction of justice and lies, like Newell, rather than rewarding field agents taking out dangerous criminals like ATF Special Agent Jay Dobyns, ATF Operation Fast and Furious Whistleblowers John Dodson, Pete Forcelli, Vince Cefalu and others for their bravery and sacrifice to fight violent crime and for exposing corruption within the agency.
[. . .]
the cover-up where they are denying the evidence and hiding the evidence of what they did wrong and then you go into the lies under oath that they’re denying and raising their right hand, swearing to tell the truth and willingly and intentionally not telling the truth," Dobyns says.

Journalists Ignore FBI Crimes and Negligence

No mention in this story of the failure of an FBI agent, who was disciplined (Ahem!), to respond to Samson's call to surrender. Why wasn't the agent indicted for contributory negligence, or as an accessory to the murders? The FBI is extremely competent in covering up their crimes and abuses and in framing innocent civilians. They do a credible job allowing their informants to murder citizens who report crimes. Then there is the role of the prosecutors ignoring the role of the FBI in these murders. The national criminals running the department of justice operate with immunity and focus on one FBI agent to explain 20 years of police corruption.

Hospital Hill in Passaic

Hospital Hill in Passaic
By Francis Gurtowski
October 2011

This December 17th will be the 120th anniversary of the founding of
the first hospital in Passaic. The homegrown charitable institution
outgrew one hand-me-down accommodation after another until it finally
homed in on the ten heavenly acres of Passaic's Little Switzerland known
thereafter as Hospital Hill.
Bounded by Crescent Place, Boulevard, Oak Street, and Lafayette
Avenue, the singular second-ward tract stubbornly held out as late as
1891. It remained first-growth forest despite one real estate boom
after another. A quarter of a century after municipal incorporation,
the largest profits were still being made here by flipping farmland.
The structure of the economy of Passaic would soon change due to one
Julius Forstmann, however. The future Dundee drumbeater was as gifted
as Steve Jobs, but he was too headstrong to wait his turn to run his
family's German woolens empire. Forstmann had already scouted Passaic
as possibly the most promising place to roll his own dice, but it would
be four more years before he took the plunge, settled here, and
ultimately precipitated 18,000 manufacturing jobs.
A putative grid of paths and plats already tattooed the domesticated
foothills of Little Switzerland, while its summit nevertheless stayed
unblemished, positively raw and intact. The wilderness had been spared
subdivision by resolutely resisting grading. Prescribed to level off
bumpy land to a smooth, flat or gently sloping, surface, grading was the
absolutely indispensable ingredient in the foolproof formula for
transforming "third-class" acreage in its natural state into
"first-class" building lots.
The first peek at the massive underlying ledge was obtained when an
outcrop was exposed by the workmen, dynamite, horses, and plows
heroically punching Lafayette Avenue through to Oak Street. The bedrock
prominence would have been an ideal site for a citadel had there been a
consensus for a fortress commanding the city. The high timberland was a
white elephant until a high-concept proposal for a regional hospital did
receive universal support and struck pay dirt.
The Aycrigg family donated the land for next new thing in Passaic.
By sheer serendipity, the plateau crowning the bluffs - as is -
satisfied the prerequisites for a site for the sort of "convalescing
hospital" which its boosters had in mind. In theory, its patients would
be cured by "walking it off." The regimen was trice-daily
constitutionals in fresh air on the grounds of the sanatorium.
There was an ample supply of pro bono MDs. Attending physicians
donated their services on a rotating basis. Doctors "only" billed for
follow-ups: office visits and house calls. On the other hand, from the
get-go, a nurse shortage shaped the development of Hospital Hill. Stays
were typically long and drawn out, and the nurses throughout New Jersey
were organized. A nurse's pricey hourly fees could add up to a
considerable bill for services rendered to the patient. Anyone
fortunate enough to latch onto a compatible nurse was wise to just pay
the piper, however.
The demand side of the nurse shortage was mitigated by having family
members provide hands-on bedside care for their loved one, around the
clock, right there in the hospital. Kith and kin were drafted to pitch
in. The supply side was assuaged too. The hospital's boosters lured an
esteemed senior nurse from Boston General to train and certify new
nurses; beat the bushes to recruit superior trainees; and spared no
expense to retain them.
A college-like campus was constructed within the walls of the
hospital and elsewhere on the hospital grounds. The most visible
embellishments were a lavish dormitory and a clay tennis court. One of
the two cuts in the Hospital Hill curb along Boulevard was for a
dedicated entrance to the student nurses' home. A long driveway veered
left, passed right by the tennis court, and led to their dormitory. The
drive in and out was facilitated by a landscaped circle right at the
door. The front of the student nurses' home was brightly lit from dusk
to dawn.
A student nurse could go on a casual date without even leaving the
campus. A couple could eat a light, leisurely meal in the hospital tea
room and then hit the tennis court, or vice versa. The doctors ate in
the five-star lunch counter too, on a regular basis, while the families
from the neighborhood ate there only on special occasions. The hospital
tea room featured Welch Farms ice cream. The super-premium treat was
available for eat-in and take-out. Swollen tonsils were a scourge back
then. The same ice cream was also prolifically prescribed on the
children's ward.
One of the two most glamorous spots in Passaic was the Central
Theater where I and many others luxuriated in its expansive art-deco
lounge. The other was the student nurses' home. On duty, they wore
starched whites but, off duty, the immaculate Florence Nightingales-in
training metamorphosed into fur-draped glamour girls on Friday and
Saturday nights. On formal dates the student nurses left their campus
in fairy-tale style. Gussied-up boys in gussied-up cars queued up right
outside the door and called in turn for their respective gussied-up
girls. The entire rigmarole reminded me of the red-carpet treatment
that Hollywood starlets receive at Academy Awards.
The student nurses flaunted fur stoles from Broadway establishments
such as Phil's Rent-A-Fur. Through my high school years, I worked at
Phil's Furs where I cleaned and glazed all kinds of fur and fake-fur
garments. The business had a roomy, high-tech, climate-controlled,
two-level fur vault upstairs just for the garments belonging to storage
clients. During the Cuban missile crisis, I stayed close to that Fort
Knox-like "bunker." The rental enterprise had its own vault in the
basement, right there where I operated the various forms of special
equipment indigenous to the fur trade. The grotto extended seemingly
for miles and miles all the way across Broadway and beyond. Phillip
Cohen had a knack for matching up a rental client with precisely the
right fur garment for the occasion. At the conclusion of his theatrical
matchmaking, I would "spritz" the "piece de resistance" and after that
it would be "good to go." During the Cuban missile crisis, I avoided the
"cave" for fear that it would collapse and bury me.
The only cut in the Hospital Hill curb along Lafayette Avenue was
for the laundry/incinerator which satisfied the demand for starched
whiles. The incinerator was on the street level of the works, but it
had a tall chimney. The incinerator generated the heat that boiled the
water that washed the soiled linens. The laundry had a separate
entrance facing in the direction of Boulevard. The laundry was reached
via a long concrete ramp to the second floor of the works. Workers
rolled huge canvas-sided bins up and down, to and from an assembly line
where the Hospital Hill's laundering was done. The only exception was
whatever items required sterilization with super-heated steam in the
autoclave (which was located elsewhere).
There was a superficial similarity between my work dry-cleaning fur
garments and the far more onerous, industrial-strength, garment
laundering going on up there on Hospital Hill. I operated a small
boiler which produced the steam required to remove wrinkles from garment
linings, while the hospital laundry was a veritable steam room
especially during the summer. The hospital laundry lacked a certain
creature-comfort to which I had access, moreover. The
thirty-something-degree fur vaults were my favorite summer retreats.
I was raised right below Hospital Hill, so I naturally took the
hospital grounds for granted. I grew up automatically thinking of
Hospital Hill as just yet-another awesome park in Passaic. I lived
halfway between the hospital grounds and Second Ward Park. The former
just happened to have a hospital on it and the latter a school. It was
the same thing as far as I was concerned. I was a very independent
eight-year-old kid, by the end of 1953, with a tough choice to make each
day. Where should I play?
That year is my chosen benchmark because I remember vividly the
aftermath of a 1954 hurricane. It knocked over a dozen first-growth
trees on the Lafayette Avenue side of the hospital grounds. The
respective canopies of those fallen specimens landed practically in my
front yard. The downed trees looked for all the world like expired
parachutes. I was surprised by the diminutive root balls of what were
without a doubt the best playground equipment ever. The individual
victims stood apart where the hospital grounds had been thinned. Only
the more sociable trees everywhere else withstood the stiff winds. I
figured the survivors must have held hands with what meager roots they
did have.
Snow meant extreme sledding on the hospital grounds.
Alyse (Korzeniowski) Kalas wrote:
"Our house was directly across from the emergency room entrance so
we heard sirens all the time. In 1962 Passaic General Hospital was one
building at the top of the property. There was a nurses' home and a
doctors' home on the property as well. We played major, major games of
hide and seek on the hospital hill during the summer, going home only
when it got dark. During the winter that hill was called Suicide Hill
because the slope was pretty steep for sleigh riding and lots of kids
got creamed on the way down. The hospital now occupies every square
inch of the what seemed like endless space back then."
Bernie Heyman wrote:
"Before I was of school age (1925-27) we lived in a four-family
apartment house on Paulison that backed up to the Memorial School Park,
then we moved to 418 Howe Avenue where we and the kids from Linden
Street played on the slopes of Passaic General Hospital."
Dave Lewis wrote:
"My dad worked at Passaic General Hospital. The hospital was
surrounded by a very steep hill. As soon as it snowed we all headed for
the hill with our Flexible Flyers. It's probably good that we were so
close to the emergency room as the hillsides were extremely steep and
you finished your sled run out on a busy street. I don't remember
anybody getting killed or even seriously hurt and the minor wounds were
just part of being a kid."
So-called Suicide Hill faced the Lafayette Avenue end of Crescent
Place. It resembled a ski jump more than a ski slope. There was no
traversing the narrow channel because it was pinched by imposing trees.
The chute was one-way, straight down. We could not climb snow-covered
Suicide Hill, especially lugging a sled. It was too steep and had too
much downhill traffic. Instead, we had to take the stairs intended for
hospital employees and visitors. A series of connected steps and
landings ascended from the corner of Crescent and Lafayette all the way
up to the parking lot at the summit of the hill. In practice, we might
have used those stairs more than anyone else but the phenomenon was
certainly not by design. The draftsman of the plans for that particular
pedestrian convenience surely did not have us sledders in mind.
The hilltop lot served the hospital itself (as opposed to the
dormitory or the laundry/incinerator). Drivers reached it via the
second cut in the Hospital Hill curb along Boulevard bearing right. The
summit lot was rimmed with a low wooden barrier. The obstacle was just
high enough to catch the bumper of any errant vehicle before it took a
dive. Sledders congregated behind the barricade where we drank the
"Kool-Aid" and hatched yet another mass descent. There was no need for
a warming hut because our feverish adrenaline took care of that. The
epinephrine was a natural response to Russian roulette. Chalk up the
madness to group dynamics. I do not recall anyone sledding Suicide Hill
solo. Mass-Suicide Hill was more like it.
You could not change your mind. It was physically impossible. Once
over the wall and on your sled, that was it. There was no bailing out.
There was no turning back. 3-2-1, there we went. Whoosh! Moreover,
staying on your sled all the way down to the bottom of the hill was only
the first half of the thrill ride. The best was yet to come. There was
barely ten feet of flat ground from the base of the drop to the curb,
and the abrupt transition was enough to jar the fillings out of your
teeth. The desperate gradient was nowhere near what would have been
required to gently undo the acceleration of a body in "free fall" under
the influence of the earth's gravity.

October 19, 2011

American Laws for American Courts

Please sign the petition!

By Brigitte Gabriel, President

ACT! for America

This is unlike any petition we’ve ever done. We’re not sending it to Congress or the administration.

We’re “sending” it to us. And it’s extremely important.

You see, we need to hear from you. We need to know if you’ll sign our petition of support for our 2012 effort to get “American Laws for American Courts” (ALAC) legislation passed in as many states as possible.

We need to know which states have the greatest grassroots support for ALAC. I’ll explain why in a moment.

Earlier this year we were successful in getting ALAC passed in Tennessee and Arizona.

The bill prohibits state courts from using foreign law in areas such as family law. “Foreign law” includes sharia law.

This is a powerful firewall against the intrusion of sharia law into our court system. A Center for Security Policy report released earlier this year documented over 50 instances in 23 states where American courts have used sharia law over the past several years.

Our opponents have literally “gone ballistic” over our efforts to get “American Laws for American Courts” passed. One Michigan state representative made the absurd and dishonest claim that support for this bill is “racism at its core”!!

As we prepare for the 2012 state legislative sessions, we must build on the momentum we have gained this year. To do so, we need to make good, strategic decisions about where to introduce “American Laws for American Courts” and where to focus our energies and efforts.

Our ultimate objective is to get ALAC passed in every state in the Union, but we’re not ready yet to fight for passage of this law in every state—so we must choose where to do so in 2012.

This is where you come in.

One element in our decision-making is the amount of grassroots support we can muster in a state. Should our opponents try to make the preposterous case that the law is “racist,” we have to have a loud and strong grassroots presence to persuade state legislators to do the right thing and pass the bill.

For this reason, we are launching a petition to gauge the strength of our grassroots support for the bill in every state—except the states of Tennessee, Arizona, Louisiana and Oklahoma, where a bill or initiative in some form has already passed.

So let your voice be heard. Please sign the petition. Forward it to others in your state and encourage them to sign. Every person who signs will be put on the list for that state, so we can track the response to this state by state.

It’s not just the total number of names from each state we’ll be looking at. We know that larger states will likely have a lot more people sign the petition than smaller states.

This is why we’ll look at the number of names from each state as a percentage of the population of that state.

So help us in our strategic decision making. Let us know how much grassroots support there is in your state by signing our petition and forwarding it to everyone you know today!

Always devoted,

Brigitte Gabriel

Pam Geller's Speech at Hyatt in TX Shut Down By Threats

We need to watch Texas as Pam Geller (Atlas Shrugs) just got shut down from one venue because of threats.CRITICISM OF RADICAL ISLAM IS NOT ALLOWED IN A HYATT HOTEL IN TEXAS.

A Hyatt hotel in Sugar Land, Texas, has abruptly canceled a previously scheduled tea-party event at which author and Atlas Shrugs founder Pamela Geller was scheduled to speak on the dangers of Islam.
Geller said the decision came about because the hotel was "intimidated" into censoring her planned speech by "CAIR thugs," referring to the controversial Islamic advocacy group Council on American-Islamic Relations.
She accused the Hyatt Place of enforcing Islamic law, or Shariah, under which no criticism of Islam is allowed. In Muslim nations, it can be a death penalty offense, Geller noted.
Read Geller's newest column about Shariah.
She said pressure from Islamic interests ultimately pressed the hotel to cancel her address to tea party members who had set up the event.
Tea-party backers, then, were forced to find another location, the Sugar Land Community Center, on virtually no notice, Geller said.
"Free speech, the cornerstone of our constitutional republic, is in serious jeopardy," Geller reported today after being informed of the sudden change. "Under the Shariah, criticism of Islam is blasphemy (punishable by death in Muslim countries). This is the death of free speech in the continuing Islamization of America."
Get your autographed copy of Pamela Geller's "Stop the Islamization of America" directly from WND.
A Hyatt employee in Sugar Land, who identified himself only as Brandon, told WND the abrupt change was a "business" decision. But when asked about the links between CAIR and terror, he slammed the phone down

Philadelphia Hostages Not Unique Abuse of Disabled

This case is not unique. Police, not just crime families, abuse persons with disabilities and have no interest or incentive to protect vulnerable persons. Police are more concerned with catering police services to wealthy and politically connected "victims," e.g., Black Americans, Homosexuals, women, Muslims and illegal aliens. Persons with disabilities have no protection from predators especially from police employees who target them. In MA for many years prisoners were bused to mental hospitals to provide "care" to mental patients. They regularly robbed and raped the patients. When the patients complained they were ignored because they were mentally ill. Convenient, no? The same pattern is used at Harvard University by their campus cops who abuse persons with disabilities along with Harvard administrators, researchers, local city police and FBI informants. This same pattern continues in society. Police, politicians, taxpayer funded human services corporations abuse their clients. Persons with disabilities are used for increased budgets for the caregiver organizations. Seldom do they actually provide any protection. It is only for business purposes that they become an issue. MA appropriates $2 billion each year for human services. Yet this kind of abuse and others thrive due to the unlawful bias among lawyers, judges, courts and police officials.

[From article]
"Weston had been convicted in the starvation death of a man nearly 30 years ago, though it's unclear how much prison time she served.
The Social Security Protection Act of 2004 generally bars people who have been imprisoned for more than a year from becoming representative payees, those who cash someone else's check. Yet a 2010 report by Social Security's watchdog found that staff members do not perform background checks to determine if payees have criminal records."

How To Solve Problems

Some say Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best
quotes about the debt ceiling:

"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law
that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all
sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election. The 26th
amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months
& 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in
1971...before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to
the Constitution, seven (7) took 1 year or less to become the law of the
land...all because of public pressure.

*Congressional Reform Act of 2011*

1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman collects a salary while in office
and receives no pay when they are out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All
funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security
system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system,
and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for
any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay
will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the
same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen are void effective
The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen. Congressmen
made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor,
not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours
should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

Tax Breaks for Felons

Tax breaks may be an incentive to hire felons under a proposed San Francisco ordinance. Why haven't tax breaks been used to hire persons with disabilities, whose unemployment and under employment rate is 70 percent for many years. Is there concern that ex-convicts may reoffend, while disabled persons remain passive and accept being shut out of society?

The Kennedys: Dynasty and Disaster
By John H. Davis

Crowds Do As Well As Experts Predicting The Future

If this article and practice is true why is it that US and state courts allow psychologists and psychiatrists to make predictions about the future regarding the behavior of defendants? If such predictions are valid why not allow these same prognosticators to predict stocks and bond behavior and race track outcomes and even the lottery numbers? Under what rational system are these charlatans allowed to take a person's freedom based on personal opinion?

[From article]
"Statistics have long shown that large crowds of average people frequently make better predictions about unknown events, when their disparate guesses are averaged out, than any individual scholar — a phenomenon known as the wisdom of crowds.
[. . .]
Military and intelligence researchers have long studied ways to improve the ability to predict the future.
[. . .]
Another team, led by psychologists at the University of California and the University of Pennsylvania who are focused on asking questions in ways that minimize experts' overconfidence and misjudgment, said Don Moore, a professor at Cal-Berkeley.

"At some level, you cannot predict the future," Twardy said. "But you can do a lot better than just asking an expert."

Uganda: Invisible Children


Recent history of conflict in Central African Republic, Uganda, South Sudan, Democratic Republic of The Congo.

In October 2011 Obama sent US military advisors to Uganda. In 2001 under the USA Patriot Act, the Lord's Resistance Army was declared a terrorist organization in 2001. "In 2004, Congress passed the Northern Uganda Crisis Response Act, the first piece of American legislation to address this disaster."

Eliminating Canada, Mexico, US Borders

Does this explain why there is little interest in enforcing US immigration laws? The elite of the two political parties decided to open the borders without any input from the people of the country. They expect there to be enough illegal aliens so that it will be a fait accompli. So much for representative democracy.
