    Special: Further Analyses of Current Mental Health Legislation Smith and Tenney

    in Current Events

    Yvonne Smith and Lauren Tenney host open lines for further analyses of the MHASP webinar, "Murphy Bill in 2015". Not that they would put it this way, maybe, but the webinar will feature a discussion about three sweeping legislative efforts concerning the psychiatric industry and state power. The bills discussed will include the Congressman Tim Murphy's now dead H.R. 3717 and its resurrected evil twin, H.R. 2646, the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2015, put forth by Congressmen Murphy and Johnson.  Meanwhile in the Senate, back in March 2015, Senators Bill Cassidy and Chris Murphy successfully swayed the Senate to unanimously pass a "comprehensive mental health reform budget" and just announced last week a new bill, the "Comprehensive Mental Health Reform Act of 2015", S. 1945. 


    S. 1945 is essentially an edited and plagiarized version of the Murphy-Johnson Bill (H.R. 2646), which also includes the spirit of the H.R. 2690 bill, the "Involving Families in Mental Health Recovery Act of 2015,"  put forth by Congresswoman Matsui. Like H.R. 2690, the new S. 1945 also slices at privacy going as far to say: “the protected health information of patients with a mental illness may be disclosed with and without patient consent” (p. 82).


    This show will be an open lines call in show for people to express their further anaylses about these bills.

    Decline doesn't describe America today. Blooming disaster seems to come closer

    in Politics Conservative

    Still think another round of elections can straighten out the mountain of messes that are piling up?


     


    It appears two cops have been murdered in Texas. Another gunned down in Illinois. 


    At the same time, self-proclaimed activists are calling for police to "fry like bacon." 


    Coincidence?


    There are indications cops on the street are getting jumpy, some to the point of being very sloppy. 


     


    In Washington state, some university professors tried to ban words they deemed 'hate speech."  


    "Male" and "female" were among the words they wanted to ban.


    The Left is giving itself an ulcer frettting about a court clerk in Kentucky who refuses to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. She's a government employee, and she has to follow the law, the Lefties say.


    Have these advocates for "following the law" chimed in on Obama's selective enforcement of immigration law, or on Hillary Clinton's improper use of private email? Or how about the president's recent unilateral undoing century old legislation that named a mountain in Alaska?


    Seems to us, the progressives in DC have set the standard for picking and choosing which laws matter. 


    How come progressives are getting bent out of shape when local officials adopt the same sort of practice and mindset?

  • The View Up Here talks Canada's Digital Future with OpenMedia.ca

    in Politics

    October 19, 2015. General election day in Canada. Perhaps the last chance to prevent the irreversible changes to the country that Harper and his machine want to execute. The number of issues caused by CPC malfeasance to this point is never ending. They have had a decade to pervert this once respected nation into insignificance. Internationally and domestically.


    Since 2008, OpenMedia.ca has been a leading voice in keeping Canadians aware, informed and able to counteract the measures taken against digital rights. The Declaration of Internet Freedom has five fundamental principles. Expression. Access. Openness. Innovation. Privacy.


    Shaped by more than 250,000 people and launched last week, "Canada's Digital Future" is a crowd-sourced election platform packed with ideas from everyday citizens. This initiative of digital rights is urging people to consider Canada's digital future when casting their vote this election. While OpenMedia won’t be endorsing any political party, it does plan to meet the main parties and report back as to which are most committed to implementing its platform. Thousands of people have already pledged to vote for the future of the Internet in the upcoming election.


    “Whether it’s telecom price-gouging, reckless spying legislation, or abusive copyright notices, failed digital policies are hurting Canadians,” said OpenMedia’s communications manager David Christopher. “Young people in particular are speaking up for a better way forward, because Canada can’t afford to keep falling behind our international counterparts. That’s why this election will be the most important Canadian Internet users have ever faced.” David joins us to tell us about how your digital rights are under attack. And what OpenMedia.ca is doing on our behalf.


    Join us. Know your enemies.

    Making Common Sense Voter Decisions

    in Podcasting

    Does drama elect candidates who can serve the country? State and Local Governments? Will money choose elected officials? Or will each citizen vote their concious? The apparent levels of frustration experience due to more attentions paid to Wall Street and their Lobbyist has meant the average citizen for decades has been forgotten.  


    Will Koch Brother money, Trump Celebrity driven campaign, Hillary Clinton becoming first women President, or Bernie Sanders speaking out for the common person make it to the electorial finish line?


    Have any candidates running for the Presidency address issue important to you? Where do they stand on Insured Civil Rights Legislation? Will they support a Bill which protect Insurance Policyholders? Or will they stand silent as Wall Street continues to delay and deny benefits to Insured who've paid premiums to these corporations?


    Join ESTRA today in a discussion on why candidates spend more time on issues of Wall Street than those of Main Street.
