Killer Capitalism - Greek crisis produces fatal medicine shortages


By Michael Collins - Posted on 09 June 2012

By Michael Collins
Here is perfect example of crony capitalism.  Greek leaders do a very bad deal in secret with the help of the geniuses on Wall Street.  It turns out badly for he Greek people by creating an economic crisis.  As he crisis worsens, predicted shortages of medicine and exponential price increases emerge.  Patients with multiple sclerosis, cancer,diabetes and other critical diseases face drug shortages and out of control price increases.

"On Thursday, the [Greek] multiple sclerosis patients' association warned that if the problems persisted, sufferers could be 'led to their deaths'. Associations representing cancer, diabetes and kidney disease patients have also spoken of the gravity of the situation. 'Finding medicines,' said the MS association, 'has become a marathon for people with chronic illnesses.'"  The Independent, June 9

What happens if multiple sclerosis is untreated?

"Conclusions: This first large study in untreated patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) with different disease subtypes shows that brain atrophy proceeds relentlessly throughout the course of MS, with a rate that seems largely independent of the MS subtype, when adjusting for baseline brain volume." Assessing brain atrophy rates in a large population of untreated multiple sclerosis subtypes, Neurology, January 31, 2012

German Chancellor Merkel and the central bankers who see the need to act tough with Greece and other nations in financial crisis plus all of those complicit with the denial of health care based in economic deprivation are directly responsible for everyone suffering as a result of those efforts. They belong in jail. Unfortunately, they're the leaders of the advanced economies.

The system is beyond broke. It is assaulting the people it claims to serve.

The Money Party

So we have another mindless Watergate investigation.  The real crimes of NIXON were not the break in of the democratic headquarters, but the WAR CRIMES, TOTALITARIAN AND CLASS POLICIES OF AMERIKAN EMPIRE.   Still it pointed out like Sibel Edmonds' book, in CLASSIFIED WOMAN, how far all class institutions are willing to commit extreme FASCIST actions to hide their criminality and totalitarian policies.   In Sibel Edmond's case the FBI, STATE DEPT. AND JUDICIAL NAZIS all colluded together to hide the criminality of CONGRESS PEOPLE from both parties who sold secrets to FASCIST ISRAEL and Turkish operatives to the highest bidder.


Now we have ERIC HOLDER of the INJUSTICE DEPT. pretending an investigation, like their pretending democracy, that promotes FASCIST POLICE LAWS, AND STATE SECRETS obstruction to go after TRUTHTELLERS, WHISTLEBLOWERS, while SELECTIVELY LEAKING THEIR OWN MIS CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS to show WHAT A FASCIST, STRONGMAN, OBAMA HAS BECOME, that "FLATTERS OBAMA", when in fact it shows that the two party system has slipped into TOTALITARIAN FASCISM, with acts of war, cyber attacks, war crimes of drone murders of civilians, declared by the international jurists, TO BE COMPLETELY WAR CRIMES.


The FASCIST REPUBLICANS demand CLOSED, UNACCOUNTABLE FASCISM, CLASSIFIED SECRET, and call Obama's Fascism, and his leaks to the public, a CRIME....WHILE SAYING NOTHING ABOUT THEIR NAZISM, WAR CRIMES, COVERT WARS, FUNDED CIVIL WARS, AND THEIR GLOBAL FASCISM, which are the very crimes NIXON through Obama have committed.   These fascist bi partisans will NOT INVESTIGATE REAL CRIMES instead , technical violations, that are secondary to the FASCIST DEGENERATION OF AMERIKA.  DUPLICITY, DOUBLE STANDARDS, CORRUPTION, CLASS & TOTALITARIAN POLICIES, WHICH THEY CLAIM ARE NOT THE PROBLEM.   THEY SAY, IT IS THE TRUTH THAT IS THE PROBLEM, WHICH OBAMA SELECTIVELY, USED LIKE TOILET PAPER,  IN HIS APPEASEMENT, SELF GLORIFICATION  OF FASCISM.   BIZARRE OUTCOME......PRETEND DEMOCRACY....A FASCIST EMPIRE NOW PRETENDS INVESTIGATIONS OF CRIMINAL CLASS POLITICIANS.


FIRE ALL CLASS POLITICIANS, STOP VOTING FOR ANY CLASS PARTY, AND YOU END THIS CHARADE, AND FASCISM ITSELF. ANY TEA BAGGER FASCISTS WHO USES THE WORD "FREEDOM", LIKE ALL CLASS PARTIES, ARE INVERTING IT TO MEAN FASCISM. THE POLITICS OF FASCIST AUSTERITY IS A FASCIST , CLASS DEFORMED MARKET IMPOSED BY TOTALITARIANS AND THEIR FASCIST SHOCK TROOPS, THE FASCIST LIBERTARIANS.....WHO EMBRACE THEIR PRETEND FREE MARKETS, PRETEND DEMOCRACY, PRETEND JUSTICE.....ALL LINKED TO GLOBAL FASCISM:
