I wrote this on your site. It said that your sql syntax would not take comments on the Mumia petition so here it is. 25% of the prison population and 25% of the homeless population have hepatitis C. Drug price for curing it is a whopping $84,000 per 83 day course. A study found that drug pricing had nothing to do with research and development costs and everything to do with an exploitative monopoly taking advantage of the consuming public and the taxpayer. What do you think their costs of production are? I’ll bet you it’s a lot less than $84,000 per treatment course.
And lets take a look at the history of the AIDS virus, which is most likely an engineered virus, as in cobbled together in a lab and then spread in the population. When AIDS first emerged in the 1980s, it did not spread like a naturally occurring plague or disease. It was believed to have been spread in a hepatitis B vaccine and emerged in a targeted population in three US cities LA, NY, and San Francisco. Then up jumps the nazi GHW Bush who says AIDS is the judgement of God; no, it is the warped actions of an antichristic proto-nazi and friends who wants to ill and kill off 1/3rd to 2/5ths of an affected targeted people. Take a look at the AIDS spread in Africa; this is not the only time that nazis spread bugs and killed large numbers of people, but it is one of the hardest diseases to reverse, but reverse it we did; cannabis was used to reverse wasting syndrome. It gives you the munchies as your body de-stresses. I got a great video of some patients talking about just that and being as running alcohol during prohibition runs in our family bloodline, I ran the cannabis when it was illegal for AIDS patients during the murdering 80s so they would survive wasting syndrome; I am a real and a proud American and a Christian as well.
I digress. 25% of the homeless population has hepatitis C and 25% of the prison population has hepatitis C. So a drug price of $84,000 a treatment course is just plain highway robbery. What is the cost+ 5% of development and production? One helluva lot lower than $84,000 per course. What is more than a little interesting and terrifying is that some people would weaponize a virus strain to kill off a large number of a targeted population This is what happened in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe in the middle 1980’s; the nazis in the apartheid south african CIO spread anthrax and even marburg in six provinces of Zimbabwe during a regional brushfire war that ultimately got the colonialists run out of that country.
The book Doctor Mary’s Monkey covers how AIDS was made using shotgun gene manipulation during the early 1960’s and then “improved” over time. Now we see hepatitis C; both bugs mutate randomly and often so it is real hard to develop a healthcare response that works for a long time because you have to adapt the medicine for the new strain that is still constantly re-mutating. Sick. . . One can see how it is that the killer combination of hunger, malnutrition, and AIDS kills so many people living in fourth world poverty conditions. And that is not the only weaponized bug spread in Africa during the murdering 80’s. The history detailed in the book Rhodesian Front War by Henrik Ellert tells how both anthrax and marburg are believed to have been spread intentionally in six provinces in Rhodesia/Zimbabwe to ill and kill off the people in the way of “progress” there. There’s also experimentation in prisons and psych hospitals that goes on too. I received an e-mail at the WTO N30 ’99 protests shutdown that Kissinger-Ferguson at the State Department office of population affairs were going around to countries telling them that if they didn’t reduce their population by 1/3rd, that they would come in, start a civil war, and kill then off that way. And this is Killary’s good buddy.
So the nazis taking power in the US now propose cutting food stamps, housing, medical access, mass transportation, and higher education; that ought to ruin what is left of our neighborhoods and also eliminate those who are vulnerable, isolated, and living with chronic health conditions unsupported, you know, like the old folks. You’re shit out of luck if you don’t have health insurance in the New World Order; forget about most doctors in the US delivering healthcare for free, ain’t happening but there are beautiful exceptions who have retained their humanity. I have seen the police run people out of the local hospital untreated because they didn’t have health insurance and they were in real bad shape sometimes. That is a huge violation of the hippocratic oath, but some doctors are just plain psychos who should’ve never entered the profession; witness the one in San Francisco that ran a cannabis user out of the hospital because he thought it was messing up his lungs; dumbasse whiner. It actually clears your lungs.
What will reverse this slide into hell? A well developed grassroots movement that truly understands what is at stake with the drug war and the fascist corruption of culture and society in general. Everything about the mass murders of the Third Reich was legal and culturally affirmed; the german people went on to kill jews and other targeted peoples after the war had ended and other nations cooperated with this culturally sanctioned barbarity. And similarly there are people in the US indoctrinated to feel justified in illing and killing people off who use words like malingerer, lazy, comminist, queer, muslim, terrorist, etc., to justify their supremacist rage. Someone other than their fearless leader has to be the problem and so off they go on the delusional blame game. That is why I so appreciated the works of Wilhelm Reich describing the cultural roots of nativist fascism in the US and it’s various justifications for repression, exploitation, and mass murder. And this is why I took his work much further in my ebook on the drug war.
So take a look at the article in Third World Quarterly volume 23, #6 pp. 1159-1179 by Ian Martinez on the use of biological weapons in that war in Zimbabwe. That may have been where the anthrax spreader person of interest Stephen Hatfill may have gotten his start. And remember how it was that the Rainbow Gathering in Dick Cheney’s home state of Wyoming was attacked by a spray plane spreading water contaminated by giardia, making everyone sick during that festival. You could just hear the nazis saying goddamn dirty hippies should be made sick because they ain’t planet killing nazis like us. . . . And that is also why it is that if there is a shred of humanity left in corporate fascist Amerikkka, they should get the price of the hepatitis C drug down to where it can be effectively purchased and used by the peoples that need it; because there really is something much, much more important than the mere short term bottom line; like the lives of Mumia Abu-Jamal and others wrongfully sentenced to way too long in a prison system that makes a mockery of justice every day it works. Remember Angola and think how many people slave away in US prisons for cents on the dollar these days taking jobs away from us while making the new nazis of the global corporate plantation rich; that’s why they go to hell in the end.

PS MY daddy did long range trips in the north atlantic with the coast guard; that’s when I learned that it was more important to survive and outlast them than try and best them in combat. STAY ALIVE LOVERS AND FIGHTERS. We’re in this for the long haul.
