“The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ranks fluoridation of drinking water as one of the twentieth century’s great public health achievements.”

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

 

This is what my health insurance carrier espouses:

“The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) ranks fluoridation of drinking water as one of the twentieth century’s great public health achievements. Studies show that fluoride prevents tooth cavities, slows their progression and even reverses existing cavities.”

What’s your opinion?

Have you viewed the videos posted here on fluoridation?

Have you listened to my last three shows on KFNX?

May I suggest you download the MP3 files and listen at your convenience?

May I suggest you take some time and cue up those videos?

What do you think?

What’s your opinion?

I post practically all comments especially critical ones.

Message of the Day: To Senator “Lackey” Jeff Merkley (Oregon)

Monday, May 18th, 2009

 

Bull Shit!

Bull Shit!

 

Dear Senator—

 

Have you ever thought “the root cause,” real cause of the financial crisis is the Federal Reserve System?

 

No, of course not!

 

Because you are a sycophant, a lackey.

 

Who remains uneducated.

 

Dare we call your wonderful message treason?  Treason to the very document you swore upon oath to defend?  Are you a traitor to the American Way?  To true Freedom?  And the Constitution?

 

I say YES!

 

Until we get traitors, lackeys and stupid people like you out of office we haven’t a hope as a people.

 

Read, Senator, read.  Educate yourself. And get your head out of your ass before you and your ilk reduce US to foreign invasion!

 

Read the books I recommend beginning with these three:

Dear Friend,

 

Thank you for contacting me to share your views.  The views of Oregonians are very important to my work in the U.S. Senate, and I appreciate your patience in my response. 

 

Since I was sworn in as a United States Senator on January 6, 2009, I have been actively engaged in my Senate duties and pursuing a legislative agenda, while setting up an office, hiring staff, and establishing a system for communicating with my constituents. I am pleased that my office operations are now fully in place.  But I regret that during these initial months, I was not able to respond directly to all of the letters, emails and faxes I have received.  I have, however, reviewed daily the content of these messages.  Thank you so much for sharing your views. 

 

Here are some of the issues I have been working on during the last four and a half months.

 

Without question, the greatest challenge facing our country is the faltering economy. More than 13 million Americans are currently unemployed, and the number continues to grow each week.  In Oregon, our unemployment rate has risen a full percentage point every month for the last four months and now exceeds 12 percent.  While we cannot put America back to work overnight, we must meet this economic crisis head-on by creating jobs, investing in our infrastructure, and helping states avoid disastrous cuts and layoffs. 

 

I worked with President Obama and my congressional colleagues to enact the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). This legislation creates jobs now – more than 44,000 in Oregon alone – by investing in our nation’s transportation infrastructure, promoting the development and production of renewable energy, and modernizing our schools and repairing public buildings. This legislation puts money back in the pockets of working families by providing tax cuts for 95 percent of workers and their families, including a tax credit of $400 per person and $800 per couple for most working Americans. 

 

As a member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs, I am working closely with my colleagues to end the abusive and reckless Wall Street practices that crippled our financial system. We must also ensure vigorous congressional oversight and tough limits on inappropriate and excessive executive compensation for firms recapitalized with government assistance. 

 

We must also take action to address the root cause of our financial crisis, the housing market. I know how hard Oregon families are hit by the mortgage crisis, and I am committed to supporting legislation that protects borrowers, reduces foreclosures, and helps to keep people in their homes. Recently, I introduced two major reforms. The Transparency for Homeowners Act would ban steering payments, which are kickbacks paid to brokers to place unsuspecting homeowners into high-cost and destructive loans. The Promoting Mortgage Responsibility Act would prohibit the use of prepayment penalties – a practice that can lock homeowners into exploitive high-interest loans. I have been asked by Senator Chris Dodd, head of the Senate Banking Committee, to chair a hearing on these predatory practices later this year.

 

Another huge challenge is fixing our broken health care system.  I was pleased to be assigned to the Senate Committee on Health, Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP), which will play a key role in drafting health care reform legislation. One of my first votes was to expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program (SCHIP).  The expansion of SCHIP, which was signed into law by President Obama on January 30, 2009, will provide health care coverage to about 42,000 additional children in Oregon. But with over 47 million Americans currently without health insurance and the continuing rising costs of health insurance straining families’ budgets and businesses’ bottom line, more needs to be done. I will work tenaciously with my colleagues on the HELP Committee to secure affordable and accessible health care for every single American.

 

As you may know, protecting our environment ranks high among my legislative priorities. I am proud to have cast my first vote in the Senate in support for the passage of the Omnibus Public Land Management Act of 2009. This legislation, which was recently signed into law, designated approximately two million acres across the country as Wilderness, including nearly 200,000 acres in Oregon. Protecting these special places not only conserves wildlife habitat; it also protects sources of clean water for many Oregonians and creates jobs in the tourism and recreation industries. 

 

In addition, I am working hard to promote the development of clean and renewable energy. Indeed, converting our economy to run on clean energy is one of the most pressing challenges our nation faces.  As a member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, I am helping to help draft comprehensive energy legislation to strengthen national security, create jobs, and take on global warming. It is essential to our national security that we end our dependence on foreign oil, to our economic future that the next generation of clean energy jobs be created here at home, and to our environment that we limit the pollution that is causing global warming. We are already seeing the effects of global warming in Oregon, where scientists have measured shrinking snowpack in the Cascades, which threatens reduced river flows for farm irrigation, salmon migration, and hydropower generation.

 

Finally, I am fighting aggressively for much-needed credit card reform.  Many Oregonians are getting slapped with unfair credit card penalties and fees – at any moment their interest rates go sky high for no reason at all.  I cosponsored legislation, the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure (CARD) Act, which will tighten the rules to end such deceptive and unfair practices in the credit card industry. I am pleased we passed this landmark consumer protection bill out of committee, and I look forward to getting it to the President’s desk soon. 

 

If you would like to know more about my work in the Senate and positions on other important topics, please go to my recently launched website, http://merkley.senate.gov/, to sign up for my e-newsletter updates or to email me directly about issues that matter most to you. 

 

Thank you, again, for taking the time to contact me.  It is an honor to serve as your Senator, and if I have not appropriately addressed your concerns in this response, please share your views again.

 

All my best,

Jeff Merkley
United States Senate

 

 

 

RFI No. 05-04 MIDDAUGH Outcome? ADOC’s Tradition of Falsehood

Friday, February 6th, 2009

 

 

While my attorney said he represented Dr. Anne Middaugh, the outcome of RFI No. 05-04 is difficult to determine.  In part because Dr. Middaugh is no longer listed as holding an Arizona psychologist license and there is no reference on the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiner’s WebPages on Past Board Actions to any action taken against this psychologist.  And in part because it appeared from his report that Dr. Middaugh was merely given a “slap on the hand” by the Arizona Board of Psychologist Examiners.

 

Please note I admired Dr. Middaugh’s presentation before the Board and her candor in her recorded presentation.  (See previous posting in my blog)  However, that does not mean the truth was completely told.

 

I was informed Dr. Middaugh was consequated with a 30-day suspension and assigned taking extra Continuing Education Units (CEU’s) (i.e. training) in “boundaries” and that was all.  It was reported to me that Dr. Middaugh informed the Board that she did not conduct “interpersonal therapy” with her new husband/former patient and ward of the State/ADOC inmate but, rather, ‘she had merely treated her husband for “substance abuse.”’

 

However, at the time it was against ADOC policy for psychologists or mental health staff to treat inmates for substance abuse.  For some time prior, all substance abuse treatment was delegated to the Corrections Officer III’s (CO III’s) otherwise known as “counselors” or “Care Bears” whose primary function is “classification” and the placement of inmates.  This was because of a turf battle over a tremendous amount of federal funding that used to be made available for substance abuse treatment.

 

Needless-to-say, mental health and health services lost that battle with Security to the CO III’s.  However, that has changed now that there is no funding for substance abuse treatment and Security has done its best to shuck off substance abuse treatment duties to mental health staff. 

 

Funny thing is one of the CO III’s at ASPC-F South Unit provided such wonderful substance abuse groups that I as mental health professional at ADOC was embarrassed!  It was cognitively based and even though Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) was the only therapy approved for use in ADOC, I saw little to none of it conducted!

 

Back to my story, I was so impressed by this CO III, this Care Bear and his substance abuse treatment approach that when I caught wind his Deputy Warden wanted to shut his groups down and re-assign him towards more classification tasks, I bought the DW lunch and implored her to keep his program!

 

There is no treatment in ADOC in mental health.  For the most part it’s just like the rest of ADOC:

 

It’s a Paper Tiger.

 

ADOC’s Motto:

 

“If it’s not on paper, it didn’t happen.”

 

Likewise,

 

“We’ll make up and write up whatever lies we (ADOC) see fit to foist off, whatever “reality” we (ADOC) want—on the public, inmates and employees alike!”

 

 

 

ADOC Internal Affairs Investigation #2004-1446 Part IV — the end

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

 

 

ADOC Internal Affairs Investigation #2004-1446

 

While the investigation report is full of lies and deceit, it stands as evidence of ADOC’s concerted effort to retaliate against me. But let me address one of the complaints within that body of lies and deception:

 

There was an officer who signed an IR (Information Report) claiming I had greeted her one morning saying something to the effect that ‘it looked like she had “some good sex” that weekend.’ I never said that. What I did say when I greeted her Monday morning jovially was a rather innocuous and innocent expression, as best I can recall: “It looks like you got lucky.”

 

Part of my warning about Lisa Johnson was she forces her subordinates to write and sign false statements in Information Reports.  If they fail to write up and sign false reports against other Corrections Officers, they in turn are subject to becoming the focus of such terroristic tactics!

ADOC Internal Affairs Investigation #2004-1446 Part III (The Really JUICY STUFF!)

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

 

ADOC Internal Affairs Investigation #2004-1446

 

 

Another interesting aspect is that Lt. Lisa Johnson’s participation in this matter becomes problematic, not for me but for Lieutenant Johnson and the entire administration of ADOC! You see, Lieut. Lisa Johnson has been utilized, most definitely over utilized in the past to set up officers whom ADOC administrative staff deemed “undesirable” and the administration has used the “services” of Lisa Johnson to set them up and entrap them in false allegations of sexual harassment.

 

In this manner ADOC is able to effectively (yet wrongfully) terminate undesirable employees.  For the most part ADOC targets employees who will not knuckle under and play their games replete with generating false allegations against other employees and inmates as well.

 

I first met Lisa Johnson in 2001 when I was working on North Unit at ASPC-F. At the time Ms. Johnson was a sergeant and I was impressed by her. What I found attractive in her was what I thought might have been her character. Let me tell you a story.

 

I arrived at work that morning to face a new nursing supervisor who was adamant I needed to see a particular inmate & back her up and her claim the inmate was “Malingering.” But in fact what was happening was the inmate was dangerously delirious.  Upon conferring on an emergency basis with the head physician, Dr. Osteen, my suspicions were confirmed: the inmate was suffering from acute liver failure due to lack of treatment for hepatitis C. The ammonia circulating in his bloodstream was overcoming him and he was at risk of dying. That particular inmate had been scheduled to be transferred inside “The Walls” to Medical to receive critically needed treatment approximately 3 hours earlier!

 

What drew me to Lisa Johnson was the fact that she did what was right and I mistakenly thought she might have been a woman of character and I was interested in getting to know her. Sure, I found her attractive but I am very cautious. I invited her to lunch just like I did the Warden and left it at that.

 

Apparently the new nursing supervisor for North Unit was trying to establish her dominance in order to impress her subordinate nurses and as a result misjudged and the inmate later died. Interestingly, I ran into that particular nurse in Wal-Mart after she had been discharged. Without revealing her name, I can tell you that she was very distraught and she explained to me how ADOC had targeted her and her family—wrongly—unfairly!

 

Not only had they terminated her from employment at ADOC but somehow this nurse’s 19-year-old daughter had been charged with a “sex crime” because when her daughter was under age (a minor under 18) she had engaged in sex with her boyfriend who was of the same approximate age as her. According to this nurse somehow ADOC became involved in this matter in order to retaliate against her.

 

But to get back to my story, I had been warned by another female corrections officer that the former sergeant and now lieutenant at South Unit was used by ADOC administration to harass fine upstanding corrections officers and run them off! But, I forgot about the warning yet according to my usual standards I heeded professional boundaries and thus Lieut. Lisa Johnson was unable to entrap me as she had so many others before me.

 

Perhaps more interestingly, another corrections officer on the yard at South Unit informed me that Lieut. Lisa Johnson was engaged in an unprofessional sexual affair with Warden Kleck! Johnson was the Warden’s girlfriend.

 

As I left on October 12, 2004 for an interview with Investigator Phillip Schonig the Padre, that is, the minister in the office next to mine joked and asked: “It wouldn’t have anything to do with Lieutenant Lisa Johnson, would it? The lieutenant has a very nice body.  The problem is more than 95% of the time she is using it to advance herself (within the ranks of ADOC).”
