How the war on drugs gave birth to a permanent American undercaste

AlterNet
by Michelle Alexander

03/08/10

If you take into account prisoners, a large majority of African American men in some urban areas have been labeled felons for life. (In the Chicago area, the figure is nearly 80%.) These men are part of a growing undercaste — not class, caste — permanently relegated, by law, to a second-class status. They can be denied the right to vote, automatically excluded from juries, and legally discriminated against in employment, housing, access to education, and public benefits, much as their grandparents and great-grandparents were during the Jim Crow era...

The war on drugs: Persisting in failure

Downsize DC
by James Leroy Wilson

03/25/10

87% of drug studies found that drug law enforcement was associated with increasing levels of drug-market violence …. this is no surprise in Mexico, where 18,000 have died in three years of war between the government and drug cartels …. which is expanding to once-calm cities …. But the Administration’s response is to pour more aid into Mexico’s unwinnable war. … Even ’success’ leads to failure...

Hillary's Drug War

"It's Just Strengthening the Biggest Cartel"

By Mike Whitney

Al Jazeera has put together a 3-minute video which asks whether the Mexican government is "favoring" the country's most powerful drug gang, the Sinoloa Cartel. After watching the video, you'll wonder who's really running the country?

Drug Wars - The Politics Of Big Business

Big Pharma spends millions every year buying influence in Canberra, Australia [Ed. Note: and everywhere else for that matter]. An investigation by Weekend Business has revealed that the health industry, which spans everything from pharmaceutical companies, hospitals, pharmacy chains, general practitioners and health insurance companies, spends millions of dollars a year buying political access and influence, through lobbying, hiring former government staffers both internally and externally, issuing ads and making grassroots campaign contributions. Jerrold Cripps, QC, who recently ended his five-year term at the Independent Commission Against Corruption, made a parting shot that political donations and lobbying by former MPs and ministers ''are activities that are unmistakably conducive to corrupt conduct''. Drug pushing is a high-risk game.

Flu Vaccines Cost A Fortune And Don't Work

Tom Jefferson, an epidemiologist with the prestigious Cochrane Collaboration, which has headquarters in Britain, has published several systematic reviews of existing studies on the efficacy of influenza vaccines. Weighing the data, they conclude that there is insufficient evidence to indicate that flu vaccines reduce infection rates or mortality, even in the elderly. We have studies that claim up to 90% effectiveness against death from all causes [in inoculated patients compared with the non-vaccinated]. If you were to believe that evidence, you would believe that flu vaccine is effective against death not only from influenza, but also from heart attack, stroke, hypothermia, accidents and all other common causes of death among the elderly. That is quite clearly nonsense. In a separate study we looked at the science that policy makers use, and it's disturbing how large the gap is between policy and evidence.

More Proof Flu Shots Don't Work

Yet another meta analysis of five flu studies conclude flu vaccinations are a waste, as they do not reduce illness or mortality in the elderly.
