“Why extremists always focus on women remains a mystery to me,” she told an adoring crowd at the Women in the World Summit at Lincoln Center on Saturday. “But they all seem to. It doesn’t matter what country they’re in or what religion they claim. They want to control women. They want to control how we dress. They want to control how we act. They even want to control the decisions we make about our own health and bodies."What a hypocrite.
The government already to a large degree control the decisions we[*] make about our own health and bodies" since the 1906 cigarette mercantilism act (Food and Drug Act) granting the United States Department of Agriculture - an entity dedicated to the health of business rather than people, dictatorial power to ban substances from interstate trade, other than Tobacco, and establishing a labeling requirement for cocaine that was not also applied to caffeine and nicotine, thus creating a false impression that the former were necessarily more dangerous than the other two in the context accepted for the latter two (oral infusions or smoke leaves).
Readers of this blog are already likely aware that the main market threat to Tobacco was Coca leaf, and that a U.S. government -- U.S. Congress Office of Technology Assessment -- commissioned report in 1993 "Coca Reduction Strategies" concluded to the contrary that Coca should be legalized.
Yet what happened with that report?
What did the Clinton Administration do with it?
They simply ignored it.
As does the standard "left-progressives" which remains strangely silent about the elephant in the living room of this murderous cigarette-pharma mercantilism responsible for a majority of not 2/3rds of all of the cases one may hear called in our "Courts."
