Kay Jamison The Unquiet Fraud





In Tribute to Vincent:

"Genius from Madness; and if he lived today he would be locked away painting blank canvasses to no one, blinded by anti psychotics, strapped to a bed with frozen hands, his gift never blossoming or shared. Yes, he took his own life; that is our loss and his burden bared; but it was never a life in vain. " - from a comment I left at soulful sepulcher

I thought these two videos off YouTube where both interesting and entertaining; so Thanks to Philip over @Furious Seasons and Stephany @ soulful sepulcher Blogs ( Both Blogs have links on my side bar) I bring them to you for provoking thought, education, and your enjoyment.

Now you must be wondering about the Title of this Post? Kay Jamison has been running around for many years publishing one book after another telling us all how wonderful her drugs are in controlling her "Bipolar Label". But she just doesn't stop there; she in out there pushing the Child Bipolar Myth with the likes of Goodwin, Biederman, Nemeroff, many others of what I call the psycho-psychiatrist, and of course those good old money grubbing pimps @ Big Pharmaceutical.

She wrote a book about all those famous people in History and the Arts that in her eyes had Bipolar or what I would call Precious Madness ( I would highly question her take on the historical perspective of Madness, since she has no idea what was effecting those minds in all reality, and never met or has tangible data on any of those so called mad people).

I guess you can even use that false tool the DSM on the dead as well as the living. I gather you could call the DSM, the Gift that's just keeps on screwing you even after your dead. So why am I picking on poor little Kay and her fan club? Because she and others like her are part of the problem and not part of the solution. She is just another money whore on the speaking tour that includes NAMI, DBSA, CABF (Child & Adolescent Bipolar Foundation) where she is an advisory counsel member, and any APA or Convention/Conference of drug pimping shrinks that can pay the mighty toll.

Next time you are tempted to pick up one of her newest psycho propaganda books; at least you should know exactly where she is coming from. She is and always will be a drug first and at all cost type of person. Not exactly what is need in these times when we are just starting to get the clear picture about how psychiatry and the Pharmaceutical industry has screwed us in countless ways; as in through damaging our health with dangerous and unproven drugs, by destroying many individuals and families financially, By using mythological methology per the DSM in propagating a Myth that has the potential to destroy our future as a society; by destroying the very foundation of any society "OUR CHILDREN".

What a GO Kay, you deserve and have earned your spot on the "what the F--K" list here on this Blog.

A List of the CABF Advisory Counsel: Let's play pick out the WANTED POSTER! OK, I was just messing with you! They are all guilty; Just some a lot more than others.

Peace be with you Stan

Once upon a time psychiatry was called a quack science or medicine by real scientists and doctors respectively. I mean it was common. Real scientists would fall down laughing when some psychiatrist claimed to be a scientist too. Over the years, through propaganda, they have been able to convince ordinary people they are in fact scientists or doctors.

I remember when I read "listening to prozac." A book about a half a dozen prozac miracle stories. No one got Tardive Dyskinesia, no one committed suicide, no one went postal, and everybody lived happily ever after. Propaganda is simple; attack dissent, one sided praise of their drugs, and substituting anecdotal stories for the truth.

They create fear - "there's a crazy person who means to harm us among us," or they play on love - "wouldn't you like to be normal?". They provide the reaction to the play on our emotion with articles, books, and the ever popular TV talk show. Lastly they provided the solution of mass drugging of the population. They speak of it in terms of "trigger events" and "paradigm shifts." And they increase their estimates of those they label mentally disordered every time they speak.

love eternal
