It all started about three weeks ago when I went on my routine weekly visit to a rest home. As I was in the midst of my bible study, the nurses rolled in a very unhappy Miss Linda. The nurses had forced her to take a bath and come out of her room. Miss Linda had fallen out of her bed within the week and hurt her back. Although I have heard of an ensuing depression after an elderly person breaks a hip, I have not heard of this happening from just hurting one's back. However, Miss Linda has lost her will to do anything, including eat. This presented a problem with regard to her pet, Precious the cat. She had also stopped feeding and caring for Precious. The nurses all seemed to have great disdain for this cat. Nobody would volunteer to feed or change the litterbox until Linda recovered.
After my meeting, I went to talk with a very unhappy Linda. All she wanted to do was go back to bed. Lunch time was approaching, so I stayed and had lunch with her, hoping to generate a bit of enthusiasm. I pretty much had to feed her as I would a very small child. While there, one of the staff came up to inform Linda that they would have to find another place for the cat. Linda agreed. Knowing that the "other place" for the cat would be the local pound, sight unseen, I offered to take care of Precious until she got better. Very much hoping that she would get better. I informed Linda and the Staff that I would be back the next day with the cat carrier.
Around noon, I showed up to pick up the cat. Miss Linda hadn't eaten, so I talked her into letting the nurse bathe her and then we had lunch together, sort of. I fed her as much as I could. She immediately wanted to take a nap, so we went back. Precious was huddled in the closet. We talked a bit, and then I proceeded to convince Precious to come home with me. Two hours later, I was still chasing Precious thoughout the room. At one point I had picked her up. However, she managed to free herself from my arms and bolt under the bed. I was crawling in closets, crawling under the bed, trying to convince Precious that I was really her friend. Food didn't even work. I made a little trail of food leading to me. Nope, she knew that was a trap. Two hours later she let me pet her. I could just reach her under the bed. When she least expected it I picked her up and this time held her tightly while petting and cooing to her. I asked Linda to call a nurse to help me put Precious in the carrier.
After a little while, a nurse came in and asked Linda what she wanted. I requested that she help me put Precious in the carrier so that I could take her home. Horrified she looked at me and said that she was afraid of that cat. I asked her if she could get me a nurse that was not afraid.
A little while later, another nurse entered and said "Cover up Linda, I have James with me." One would naturally assume that James would be a handiman that would help me in what might be a difficult endeavor. I turned around and there was James the resident with his girlfriend who has Parkinsons. She kindly offered to hold the cat, but I declined, thinking of how to proceed with a "Plan B." I then proceeded with the only idea that would work. I asked James to take the carrier and put it on the floor with the back to the floor and the door on top. I had James hold it while I dropped Precious in and quickly slammed the door behind her. whew. Job done.
The trip home was uneventful and I put her on the front seat next to me and talked to her all the way. Once home, I put the carrier on the floor and opened the door putting some water and food right outside. After a few hours, she merely bolted for under my bed. And stayed there for two days. On the third day, she was in my closet, huddled in the corner as she had been in Miss Linda's closet. As I approached her she bolted back under the bed for another day. The next time I saw her in the closet, I quickly picked her up and decided that Precious could stay in the guest room with water, food, and kitty litter facilities. For two weeks I would go into the room to talk to and pet Precious, and for two weeks she tried her best to avoid me. However, things got better. Little by little she let me pet her and on that fateful day, she was actually being affectionate and purring. I picked her up, and this time she half way enjoyed the attention. She wasn't just hanging there in a "let me down" position. However, the small inconvenience that would affect my life was about to happen.
I became brave and thought that maybe she could now have access to the entire house. At this point, my friend Amy knocked on my door to return a dish. I told her what I was up to and Amy, who is much wiser than I, sizing up the situation, suggested that I might want to put her back in the room and maybe leave the door open and leave the decision up to Precious. I would have followed her advice, but then an unforeseen circumstance took place. Misty, my faithful dog, best friend, and companion, came up and started to sniff at and welcome Precious. Why I thought that dog and cat would be friends and live happily everafter, I will never know. But, I took Precious and introduced her to Misty. "Look Precious, here's Misty." The rest is really just a blur. I heard a gosh awful hiss and as Precious broke from my hold and literally climbed up my legs and body to bolt to the bathroom, she seriously and frantically bit my shoulder. Three of her teeth broke the skin and went deep into my shoulder. The only curious thing that I still wonder about is that none of the bites ever bled. Amy was standing there horrified. As she tried to help me I yelled, "DON'T TOUCH ME!" At this point, Amy herself started yelling a bit hysterically, "RABIES! RABIES! I'VE GOT TO TAKE YOU TO THE DOCTOR!" Those words immediately sobered me and I came back to reality. I did my best to calm Amy down. Uh, no. Not the doctor. I have colloidal silver. After a while of convincing her that I would be fine and that I would not go to the doctor, Amy left, convinced that I was about to die.
I got the colloidal silver and took one tablespoon, thinking that I would up my dose and take three tablespoons a day.
The three bites became swollen and painful in a short time. When I spoke to Tony he said . . . "Tablespoons!!!!!!!!!! Drink one entire bottle NOW! and half a bottle each day after. " So I did.
Next day my shoulder looked like a baseball and there was quite a lot of pain involved. And no, Amy did not see it. I made sure of that. I continued the required dosage of colloidal silver.
A couple of days later, Ohford instructed me on a poultice to put on it, to which Tony agreed. As I read these posts quite late at night, my intention was to go out first thing in the morning. However, the next morning I woke up to a marvelous surprise. The swelling was much, much better and not at all as painful as it had been. So.... I decided not to go out and get the poultice ingredients because I felt so good and also it was pouring outside. The nearest health store is twenty miles away. I also decided that I was totally healed and took it upon myself to stop drinking the half bottles of colloidal silver and went back to my one tablespoon a day.
Two days later which is this morning, I woke up in quite a bit of pain and upon examining my bites, one has healed, but two are now swelling again. So I have begun the colloidal silver regimen again. I should not have stopped quite so soon.
The moral of this entire story: The bite was very bad. Taking into consideration the swelling, anyone depending on mainstream medicine would have had to go to the doctor for antibiotics and I don't know what else. I don't know if they would have talked me into the rabies shots just to be safe, as I do not know this cat's history. For sure I would have been given a tetanus shot. Yet, I know the quality of the Utopia Silver Products. Colloidal silver will kill all bacteria. In fact, it has been known to cure rabies. I am sure that the fact that I had been taking Colloidal Silver regularly also helped.
This was a most unusual circumstance. However, the dangers out your front door are very real. The yearly winter flu that always comes around, the stomach flu, infections, pneumonia, the list goes on. Actually, Colloidal Silver will also cure Lyme Disease. Taking Colloidal Silver on a regular basis will protect you from these illnesses, and heaven forbid should something unforeseen happen, Colloidal Silver is the answer. I will tell you that Utopia Silver Colloidal's Silver saved me from an even more pronounced infection and I was healed in just a couple of days. Be prepared, start your regimen now. Go to Utopia Silver and get yours.
Now, for my next problem. I still have Precious. And Precious is huddled in a corner by the headboard most of the time now. I do see evidence that she is eating, drinking water and using the facilities. But I know in the long run, she will not get along with Misty and Maggie my manx. Staying here is out of the question. I wouldn't give her to a house with children or pets, and I'm not sure she will be much company, if any, to an adult or older person. And it doesn't look like Miss Linda is getting better.
What to do?
This was written last week. I received many helpful suggestions, two of which I am using. I am giving Precious colloidal silver in case she has some type of an infection. I am also using the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) on her. Stay tuned.... I will let you know how Precious progresses.

Hi folks -
You know, sometimes it gets awfully lonely and the spirits lag a bit when you make very little money, work very long days on end and try to keep going even in spite of it thing like criticism left and right that what you are doing is wrong, that you are causing people to turn away from the real medicine that could save their lives and turning them to voodoo medicine and herbs only to line your own pockets (and forget how empty they are!), or that you are a nutcase for all the concerned posts I make as DQ about the evil I see taking away and threatening our freedoms.
Even when you know in your heart that you are right, it just gets hard sometimes, ya know? And I have to admit that it is a frightening and heartwrenching thing to advise others about their health, and often I stay awake at night worrying how this or that person I advised is fairing. I mean who am I, a mere flawed mortal with far less than perfect knowledge, to have anyone place their health, and perhaps even their very life in my trust?
Then you get a wonderful email like this one (which came today from a member of my Yahoo Oleandersoup Healthgroup) and your heart sings with joy, your faith in yourself and humanity is restored, as well as in the One who watches over us, and you just want to share it with the world! It goes without saying that this has truly made my Thanksgiving one to find much to be thankful for - and foremost of that is the honor and privilege of doing the best I can to help people like Toya (who wrote the email) and those here in this forum and on the Curezone website.
I just want to say being the sleepy participator that I am.........how much I appreciate this group....Luella May's heart....Roberts research skills....Jeffery's ability to lay down his life for a friend....Dr.G's reasuring words......not to mention your heart for humanity and "Get"er Done" passion !I really appreciate all of you and have notice a significant size reduction in the lump under my arm and in my breast sense starting OS 3 weeks ago! I am trulyblessed by what I read daily and encouraged.....You all are a part of what I am thankful for this Thanksgiving !
And so my heartfelt reply:
You have made me so happy that I cried. It is messages like yours make me proud of what I am doing and confirm my conviction that what I have am devoting the rest of my life to is a good and honorable endeavor worth however much sacrifice it entails - and help keep me going no matter what.
I would also add Ed to your list - it is he who started it all by devising "oleander soup" and he is the one who started the original oleandersoup health group. Not only that, but he is a true Prince among men and, like Luella May, one of God's angels flying close to the ground.
Your precious words of hope and inspiration will be at the very top of my own Thanksgiving list of things I am thankful for.
Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart!
May I share your message with my groups?
Ahhhhhhh Tony you're wonderful and a gift to us all....
Please share it and let them be encouraged and lifted up..... that no effort goes un notice by HIS watchful eye!
You are a provision HE has made for us !
and, you know, I just do not know how many tears of joy a grown man is supposed to shed in one day. Oh my . . .
Well, I suppose I must confess, for all my bluster and bravado both here and as the crusader DQ, sometimes I am just a wimp. I guess it should have been an early clue when I shed tears at Gone With the Wind, Casablanca and An Affair to Remember, and later for Sleepless in Seattle, An Officer and a Gentleman, and even You've Got Mail and Pretty Woman (good grief!).
May this message of hope and confirmation serve as my way of wishing each and everyone of you a joyous and wonderful Thanksgiving filled with much to be thankful for, inspite of your own trials and tribulations. Thanks to that message, mine already is!
With a humble yet uplifted heart, your sappy host
"Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never - in nothing, great or small, large or petty - never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense" - Winston Churchill
"Do not despair at your tribulations, for they are My glory for you" - Eph 3:13
Tony, we all thank you and love you.

All hail the mystic President
Slovenia’s President is a recluse. Told he had cancer, Janez Drnovsek moved alone to the woods and embraced his inner spirituality. His Government despises him but he is a hero to his people
It is not often that you ask a European head of state whether he has gone loopy, but in the case of Janez Drnovsek, Slovenia’s reclusive President, the question seems almost unavoidable.
Bald, monkish and skeletally thin, Drnovsek has abandoned his capital for a mountain retreat. He no longer speaks to his Government. He boycotts state occasions, and disappears for weeks at a time. He has turned vegan, talks like a New Age mystic of his quest for “higher consciousness” and “inner balance”, and communicates with the Slovenian people through books on spirituality. He set out to tackle the problems of the world from a country smaller than Wales, and has become a champion of progressive causes.
It is an astonishing transformation for a man who, as Slovenia’s Prime Minister from 1992 until he was elected President in 2002, was regarded as a dull, grey technocrat. It was triggered by the prospect of imminent death. In 1999 he found that he had kidney cancer and, in 2001, that the cancer had spread to his liver and lungs. His doctors said his condition was incurable.
Any serious illness comes as a shock, but “the shock can be beneficial because one is caught in patterns of behaviour and somehow you do them mechanically and without really thinking about them. You do like others do,” Drnovsek explained in the course of a two-hour interview with The Times– the first he has given in months. “When you are confronted with the perception of the end of your life, it’s an opportunity to look at things from a different point of view, to change priorities and establish a distance to this daily existence and all these material developments that you are taught are so important,” he said as he sipped black tea in his office.
He accepted that some people thought that he had gone crazy, but was not perturbed. They do not understand, he said in soft, heavily accented English. “Why should I worry what people of this level of consciousness should say or think about me? This is so irrelevant.” He used a Chinese philosopher’s tale to illustrate his point: “The frog in its well was convinced that this well was the whole world. And then came a turtle from the sea. The turtle told this frog that there was a big ocean and the well was nothing. The frog said: ‘OK. This turtle is crazy’.”
In fact, most Slovenians have grown very fond of their singular President. Despite – or perhaps because of – his eccentricities he will complete his term of office next month as one of the most popular figures in his country.
Drnovsek is an erstwhile banker who won his nation’s respect – if not its affection – by helping to negotiate its peaceful secession from the former Yugoslavia in 1991, and then steering it from communism to democracy and membership of the European Union and Nato. As late as 2000 – one year after he had a cancerous kidney removed – The Economistdescribed him as a “singularly uncharismatic . . . poker-faced trimmer” whose preoccupations were growth and stability. It quoted him saying, glumly: “People demanded vision. I hate vision. The cemetery of history is full of visionaries.”
Drnovsek says that his conversion from conventional politician into “Slovenia’s Gandhi” – as one commentator has dubbed him – was gradual, and he adopted a low profile as he fought his illness. He abandoned conventional medicine because his doctors told him that they could not cure him. He dabbled with Indian and Chinese healers. He gave up meat, dairy products and alcohol in favour of organic vegetables and home-baked bread. He fasted for days at a time. He also sought to nourish his soul, leaving Ljubljana for a remote home set in beautiful beech forests south of the Slovenian capital. He lives there alone, reading and writing, without so much as a television for company since his dog died. He says modern man has lost contact with nature, but it is “very beneficial for health, for body but also for soul . . . Somehow we can purify ourselves of all negativities that are concentrated in towns and urban centres where there is all this activity and stress.”
The new Drnovsek began to reappear on the public stage in late 2005, but more in the guise of national guru than president. He cut his staff. He quit his centre-left political party and launched the Movement for Justice and Development that was open to “all people who wish to change the world for the better”. He became a champion of the environment, animal rights and the oppressed, and afierce critic of a political class that is, he says, concerned only about power and image. “If only we had a candidate like Drnovsek, or even a shadow of him, the world would quickly become less intolerable,” gushed Brigitte Bardot in the midst of the French presidential election.
Drnovsek travelled around the country. He was photographed wearing a crown of leaves. He published books entitled Thoughts on Life and Awareness and The Essence of the World that are found in the spirituality – not politics – sections of Slovenia’s bookshops. He wrote a monthly advice column in a popular women’s magazine, and a blog in the name of “Janez D”, whose subjects ranged from diatribes against pesticides to apocalyptic warnings about climate change – he says that humanity has perhaps 20 years left to save itself.
Drnovsek also began to intervene in international affairs in a way that infuriated Slovenia’s new conservative Government. He upset nearby Serbia by supporting independence for Kosovo. He visited Jerusalem, where he urged the Israelis to talk to the newly elected militants of Hamas, and Sri Lanka, where he tried to meet Tamil Tiger leaders. In China he defied the authorities by visiting Tibet. He went to India for a conference on spirituality, and to Bolivia for Evo Morales’s inauguration as that country’s first indigenous president “after 500 years of colonialism and neo-colonialism”.
His most ambitious undertaking, however, was a one-man drive to resolve the Darfur conflict that ended with the detention of his envoy and the nonappearance of Sudanese and rebel leaders at a Ljubljana peace conference. It was an embarrassing episode, and he admits that he was probably naive, but says that he felt morally obliged to try to stop the suffering. While international diplomats were living in luxury hotels, earning fat salaries and indulging in endless talks, people were dying, he says. “I thought somebody had to do something to wake up everybody.”
By the summer of 2006 Drnovsek had exhausted his official budget, and the Government seized the chance to ground him by refusing further funds for his “exotic activities”. He was forced to cancel a state visit to Spain and an appearance at the UN in New York, and grew ever more scathing in his denunciations of the Government.
Drnovsek has described Janez Jansa, the Prime Minister, as the “Prince of Darkness”. He disagrees with nearly all of what the Government does, and accuses it of moving towards a “kind of totalitarian system” by curbing the independence of the media. He stops only marginally short of saying that it was unfit to assume the EU’s rotating six-month presidency on January 1. “I will say nothing. I’m still President of this country,” he replied when pressed.
Drnovsek has now abandoned his conflict-resolution efforts. He tried his best, but was dismissed as “this crazy Slovenian President”, he says. “I came to the conclusion that the only way to change the world is to change the consciousness of as many individual people as possible, and then the pressure on politicians will increase to act differently.”
He has once again become an absentee President. He spurns official receptions. He boycotted Slovenia’s National Day celebrations in June. “ At a certain level of spirituality . . . it becomes more difficult to do these things of this material life,” he says. “You feel the ephemerality of everything, and if you know your activity will have no real effect, you become more selective about what you do and what not. I still have activities, but practically I stopped all unnecessary political activities – those involved with other politicians.”
He vanished entirely from June until mid-September, and failed to greet Romano Prodi, the Prime Minister of Italy, when he visited Slovenia in August. Drnovsek said that he spent some of that time visiting monasteries in France, tapping into the “positive energy” that monks had built up through centuries of prayer.
Drnovsek has infuriated the Government, but his people have warmed to his evident humanity. His books are bestsellers, and while a few of the Slovenes I approached in Ljubljana’s central market said that they found his conduct embarrassing, many more expressed support and affection for their unusual President.
“He’s a good and wise man,” said Katja Berlinc, a 21-year-old theology student. “He’s great. He’s not afraid to speak his mind. He’s not afraid of anything,” said Asim Begtasevic, who runs a flower stall. “He stands for basic moral values,” said Sasho Adamich, a young TV assistant. When a former lover revealed that Drnovsek had a 19-year-old daughter, it only boosted his popularity.
All this infuriates his critics inside and outside the Government. “Nobody dares to question Drnovsek’s conduct or his travels because of his illness, and because he was some sort of hero of the transition to democracy,” says Janez Markes, the editor of the newspaper Delo.
Drnovsek’s colourful and controversial presidency is drawing to an end. He is not seeking reelection, and the charming old streets beneath Ljubljana’s castle are awash with posters of the more conventional politicians fighting to replace him. He is not planning any great farewell when he steps down. He is not concerned about his legacy or image. He accepts that a certain amount of ridicule is the price to be paid for stepping outside the political system, and he certainly will not mind the anonymity. “I don’t have worries. I don’t have fears. I don’t have wishes. I’m very calm.”
Drnovsek also has one incontrovertible riposte to those who say he went loopy. Against all odds, and in defiance of every medical prediction, he has not died in office. Indeed, he now claims to be cancer-free: “I am completely healed. I am cured of everything. I can’t prove it beyond being alive. I don’t need confirmation from a doctor. I just know.”

Today's blog is a testimony from someone in one of the forums which I moderate that has become a very dear friend of mine, Trapper. Upon seeing his post, I immediately asked him if I could have the honor of blogging it. Thank you for saying yes Trapper.
and some other very fine gifts from tony. thank you, very much.
now, i taught myself about silver early on in my health quest and have seen it do amazing things. i dont sell silver, so i can make even more bold statements than the good folks at utopia.
i have seen silver save the lives of cats and dogs. i know of a 14 yo boxer that should have died a long time ago and who was poisoned by the bad dogfood from china recently so that he stopped walking and he is friskier today than he has been in years. i have seen cats who were poisoned by teflon so bad that they gained terrible weight and hissed at everything in extreme anxiety and panic lose weight and become friendly after ingesting silver. my dad was given some little dogs one time and they all acted like they had parvo and got to the point they wouldnt eat. a couple of weeks after starting them on silver, they were eating and getting pregnant and having healthy puppies. i have also cured a case of mrsa on the leg of a friend of mine which the doctors had given up on.
i checked the website of utopia and found it congruent with all that i have learned about silver. the product they have is exactly what a person wants for any use, internal or external, in any orifice and for any infection, be it viral or bacterial, fungal or mold. if the silver can get to the effected area and/or if it remains wet as with external use, it will do its job.
thanks again for everything tony. i am going to use the colloidal gold over the next weeks and will have a report on that at some point. i have done a little colloidal gold from the mesosilver people a few years back. i am in much better shape now and will be able to tell more about it.
thanks for the soap, too. you must have heard of my two weeks without a bath! lol.
love to you all and good luck to utopia in fighting the despots our government has become.
the one and only
Visit Utopia Silver and pick up your Colloidal Silver today.

The secret, it turns out, is to break apart pomegranates underwater. Here’s the trick: Score the leathery rind, and then submerge the fruit in a bowl of water while you break apart the segments and tease the seeds free from the white pith. The pith floats, so it's easy to skim off. Pour the rest through a colander and in minutes you'll have hundreds of seeds and no stains!
Pomegranate seeds are worth the trouble because they're an antiaging, skin-protecting, cancer-fighting powerhouse -- a true RealAge food. Each bittersweet seed is packed with anthocyanins, vitamin C, lycopene, and resveratrol. Research in humans has shown that the juice reduces several risk factors for heart disease and inhibits tumor growth. But the star of the show, beauty-wise, is ellagic acid.
"Ellagic acid increases the body's built-in supply of glutathione, an antioxidant that both protects DNA and helps recycle estrogen, which protects skin cells. It also inhibits certain enzymes in ways that give cells time to divide normally," explains Los Angeles dermatologist Howard Murad, MD, who has been putting pomegranate extract in his line of skin care products for nearly 20 years.
The ancient Greeks believed that eating this "apple of many seeds" might lead to immortality. And, hey, anything that keeps skin cells plump a little longer, maintains a healthier heart, and holds promise for preventing cancer has got to be good, right?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. marshals seized $71,000 worth of goods from a Florida company that illegally marketed supplements to treat serious conditions such as diabetes, anemia and high blood pressure, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration said on Friday. It said FulLife Natural Options, Inc., of Boca Raton, Florida, was marketing Charantea Ampalaya Capsules and Charantea Ampalaya Tea as an unapproved drug.
"These claims are evident in the products' labeling, including promotional literature and FulLife's Internet Web site," the FDA said in a statement.
"Despite FDA's warnings, the firm failed to bring its marketing into compliance with the law. During subsequent inspections, FDA inspectors found that the offending claims were still being made."
It said marshals also raided Charron Nutrition of Tallahassee, Florida, last August, which was promoting its Glucobetic, Neuro-betic, Ocu-Comp, Atri-Oxi, Super-Flex, MSM-1000, and Atri-E-400 capsules as treatments for diabetes, arthritis and other serious health conditions.
Thank God it was a plant that has been used for centuries instead of a real aproved drug like Fosmax, Gardasil, Avandia . . . .
People, this is an example of what the fight for health freedom is all about! It is exactly what the FDA, through their underlings at the State of Texas Agencies, are intending to do to Utopia Silver.
The public spoke loudly about their desire to have access to dietary supplements when DSHEA was passed over mainstream objections. The supreme court has ruled more than once on the issue of first amendment protection of freedom of commercial speech as it specifically applies to vitamins, minerals and supplements. And our forefathers damned sure did not envision a government agency run amuck that would so go against the will of the people and the law itself.
Let's take a closer look at what this is all about:
Here is the "horrible" and dangerous offending website:
But where are all the outrageous claims? Looks lke a pretty good site to me. Commercial but reasoned, and a lot of good information too. Let's see that the FDA warning letter can tell us about what it was the FDA found objectionable
Doctor and patient testimonials? Factual statements about a natural plant? What they are talking about here is Bitter Melon (Momordica charantia) - with a history of safe and effective uses dating back centuries. Note this excellent description of bitter melon on the RainTree Rainforest Plant Database:
Take a good look at what bitter melon has been used for, all the countries it has been used in, and just look at all of the many, many studies that actually have been performed. And yet, the FDA contends that it has not been proven safe and effective? Only by rigging the rules to make up their own definitions!
Let's be real - the problem with the studies is that they were not conducted by a pharmaceutical company to support an altered and patentable abomination. Look at this language in the FDA letter and see how they use it to suppress competition to their lords and masters and circumvent the will of the people and supreme law of the land:
Furthermore, your product is not generally recognized as safe and effective for the above referenced conditions and therefore, the product is also a "new drug" under section 201(p) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 321(p)]. New drugs may not be legally marketed in the U.S. without prior approval from FDA as described in section 505(a) of the Act [21 U.S.C. § 355(a)]. FDA approves a new drug on the basis of scientific data submitted by a drug sponsor to demonstrate that the drug is safe and effective. Your product "Chararttea" is also misbranded within the meaning of section 502(f)(1) of the Act, in that the labeling for this drug fails to bear adequate directions for use [21 U.S.C. § 352(f)(1)].
This is just such total hogwash. We all know how little harm dietary supplements cause, despite the FDA and a trillion dollar industry's best attempts to make mountains out of every mole hill they can find or allege to find. How can there be ANY doubt as to who the FDA serves? It surely is not the will of the people, nor is it anywhere near the will of our founding fathers or our constitution.
As Thomas Jefferson observed, the government is supposed to be a servant of the people and not vice versa. And as oour founding fathers wisely decreed in the Declaration of Independence, when the government fails to serve the people and their unalienable rights, it is our duty to change the government or replace it.
In the instance of the FDA, which has become a law and government unto itself, the time to exercise that duty seems to have arrived and then some.

The issue of jurisdiction seems to have be causing no small amount of consternation for the State. Taylor and his co-defendant Al Adask* contend that the State is trying to claim jurisdiction in a court operating under the color of law and under a for profit corporate STATE OF TEXAS entity but not according to the US or Texas constittutions and in violation of his God given and unalienable rights - and that no citizen is required to submit to such courts unless they consent to do so.
Some observers believe that the consternation stems from the fact that Taylor is right, but that such color of law courts have operated for so long and that people unknowingly submit to jurisdiction by signing agreements or otherwise consenting to hearings, which in effect becomes a binding contract that gives the corporate color of laws jurisdiction.
This promises to be interesting. Should the State assert jurisdiction, or I should say STATE (all capital letters indicate the corporate color of law and not constitutional entities) assert jurisdiction then the 1st Amendment guarantee of freedom of commercial speech and 5th amendment rights will surely come into play.
Stay tuned - this promises to be interesting to say the least - and we all need to be ready to show our support, because in the end these issues are vital to us all.
Mr. Taylor also reported that he and Mr. Adask were featured on a one hour broadcast on We The People Radio network this evening.
*The co-defendent, Al Adask, is a friend of Mr. Taylor's and is on the corporate board of Utopia Silver. Mr. Adask formerly published the AntiShyster magazine, until he and his magazine were silenced when he was whisked off to Missouri and locked away in a county jail for a year without charges being filed. When he was finally released, he returned to find his computer, other equipment and all mailing lists missing. He has since filed charges and will almost assuredly win, but the Sheriffs office in Missouri will likely take the fall for those whom many feel were behind the silencing of Mr. Adask
For a more detailed look at the colorful Mr. Adask, google "Al Adask". As you will find, he is fairly well known in the circles of those opposed to corruption and in favor of individual rights.
More to follow as it happens.
