"ICE" Your Mobile!

We all carry our mobile phones with names & numbers stored in its memory but nobody, other than if we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn’t know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this “ICE” (In Case of Emergency) Campaign.
The concept of “ICE” is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name “ICE” ( In Case Of Emergency).
The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn’t know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialling the number you have stored as “ICE”.
Please forward this.
It won’t take too many “forwards” before everybody will know about this. It really could save your life, or put a loved one’s mind at rest. For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc.

Message from a hard working Aussie!

I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit. In order to earn that pay cheque, as I work on a mine site on a Kalgoorlie (WA) construction project, I am required to pass a random urine test, with which I have no problem.
What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don’t have to pass a urine test. Shouldn’t one have to pass a urine test to get a Centerlink Payment because I have to pass one to earn it for them?
Please understand – I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet. I do on the other hand have a problem with helping someone sit on their backsides drinking grog & smoking dope.
Could you imagine how much money the Government would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a Centerlink Payment?
Please pass this along if you agree.
Hope you all will pass it along though, because something has to change in this country, and soon!

A Victory for the Good Guys!

Thanks to all of your efforts, including emails, calls, and visits the Mental Health Parity bill that would have forced insurance carriers to cover all 374 mental disorders in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), literally opening the door to anyone being labeled with a mental disorder and drugged, was defeated. It was extremely important that this bill be stopped, as there should be no parity of insurance coverage when there is no parity of diagnoses. The fact is, unlike real medical conditions which can be verified by a scientific/medical procedure, there are no blood tests, brain scans, chemical imbalance tests, X-Rays, etc. that can prove any psychiatric disorder is a disease or illness, yet millions are needlessly drugged due to this junk science. With commonly prescribed psychiatric drugs now acknowledged by international drug regulators as causing suicide, mania, homicidal ideation, psychosis, diabetes, heart attack, stroke and sudden death (20 warnings this year alone), you can see why defeating Mental Health Parity was so important. Under the guise of “helping” people, this bill was designed only to benefit those with a vested interest in hooking millions more Americans on drugs.
People deserve real solutions and real medical help, not junk science and vested interests looking to shove more drugs down their throats. Thanks to your efforts, they may find there are safer alternatives than the psychiatric/pharmaceutical cartel would have them believe.

A Satirical But Accurate Article On Upgrading From Vista to XP

“To be honest there is only one conclusion to be made; Microsoft have really outdone themselves in delivering a brand new operating system that really excels in all the areas where Vista was sub-optimal. From my testing, discussions with friends and colleagues, and a review of the material out there on the web there seems to be no doubt whatsoever that the upgrade to XP is well worth the money. Microsoft can really pat themselves on the back for a job well done, delivering an operating system which is much faster and far more reliable than its predecessor. Anyone who thinks there are problems in the Microsoft Windows team need only point to this fantastic release and scoff loudly.” More…
