Tomorrow, April 22 is Earth Day. It’s also the day we launch our intensive campaign to stop The MOTHERS Act with our: Stop The MOTHERS Act Action Day: All-Over-Earth Day For Healthy Births Day.
If you’re spending the day planting trees or recycling, also spend a little time taking action and getting out the word about the dangerous MOTHERS Act and what we can do to stop it.
I’ve created a Facebook event, but I am inviting everyone in the blogosphere or land of email, faxes and phones to do something to take action. If you are on Facebook, go to the event and click “attending.” Then on April 22 dedicate your Facebook activities to sharing what you’re doing to stop The MOTHERS Act, and to inviting your friends to get involved. If you’re not on Facebook, use MySpace, CafeMom, other social networking sites, and your own blog or email account to spread the word. Don’t forget if you have time on April 22 to fax or phone the Senate HELP Committee. We’ll be planting a seed in our own way.
Go to the Coalition on Facebook (http://causes.com/stopthemothersact) to join, and also go to the EVENT page to “attend” the action day launch.
Please invite all your friends and any groups you are aware of to participate.

While dozens of drug pushers and drugged mothers are busy blogging, twittering and calling Congress, and possibly hundreds more pharma grant recipeints or employees do the same to promote The Deadly MOTHERS Act, those who survived Columbine mark the 10 year anniversary of that drug-induced shooting. When you see this please take a moment of silence to honor those who died.
To see Michael Moore discuss Dr. Tracy’s book and the true cause of Columbine which he says he got completely wrong in Bowling For Columbine, go to http://www.drugawareness.org/ or see the full movie, The Drugging of Our Children by Gary Null, Ph.D. at http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3609599239524875493&q=DRUGGING%2BOF%2BOUR%2BCHILDREN
Dr. Tracy and others are holding a press conference in Colorado regarding Columbine today. Stay tuned for updates. Given the frequency of school shootings, this is an urgent matter that our country needs to address.
The Colorado State Department of Education adopted the following resolution when learning about the dangers of drugs that Harris and Klebold were taking which drove them to commit the heinous massacre.
|Colorado State Board of Education
Promoting The Use Of Academic
Solutions To Resolve Problems With
Behavior, Attention, And Learning
|Whereas, the Colorado State Board of Education is constitutionally charged with the general supervision of K-12 public education; and,Whereas, the Colorado State Board of Education dedicates itself to increasing academic achievement levels for all students; and,
Whereas, the responsibility of school personnel is to ensure student achievement; and,
Whereas, only medical personnel can recommend the use of prescription medications; and,
Whereas, the Colorado State Board of Education recognizes that there is much concern regarding the issue of appropriate and thorough diagnosis and medication and their impact on student achievement; and,
Whereas, there are documented incidences of highly negative consequences in which psychiatric prescription drugs have been utilized for what are essentially problems of discipline which may be related to lack of academic success;
Therefore Be It Resolved, that the Colorado State Board of Education encourage school personnel to use proven academic and/or classroom management solutions to resolve behavior, attention, and learning difficulties; and,
Be It Further Resolved, that the Colorado State Board of Education encourage greater communication and education among parents, educators, and medical professionals about the effects of psychotropic drugs on student achievement and our ability to provide a safe and civil learning environment.
