On JFK, Afghanistan and ADHD

RIP JFK. Fifty years later it’s mostly known the who, how, and why of his assassination. 

Will it be 50 years before the true perpetrators of 9/11 also are known? 

JFK”s words: “The very word secrecy is repugnant in a free and open society” and “Those that make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable.”

It’s estimated 90 percent of our world’s opium now comes from Afghanistan. Production is up some 80 percent since Afghanistan’s USA occupation (with its distillates apparently now reaching Alaska). 

However maybe I should be more concerned that nationwide some 30 percent of all male children are being diagnosed with ADHD, for which Ritalin is the most common recommended remedy. With fluoride added to much of our nation’s drinking water (known to reduce IQ), and mercury in vaccines, one might wonder if America is intentionally being “dumbed down.” 

Good thing we have an independent, uncontrolled media (like government subsidized NPR) that gives us accurate and agenda-free info (I jest).
