Subject: 185 Side Effects
of PROZAC & Ritalin


The following list of side effects associated with Prozac should open anyone's eyes. If all of this is true, why are we giving this stuff to our kids for? I honestly can not understand the psychology behind drugging our kids with substances like this.

>>From the book, "Psychiatry The Ultimate Betrayal", by Bruce Wiseman, pg
>211-212, "On September 11, 1989, Joe was not doing well. He was restless
>and pacing. In his psychiatrist's words, he exhibited an 'increased level
>of agitation and anger.' The psychiatrist wrote, 'PLAN - DISCONTINUE
>PROSAK WHICH MAY BE CAUSE'. Three days later, carrying a gun, Joe walked
>into his former place of employment, a printing plant in Louisville,
>Kentucky, and opened fire on the people he used to work with. When the
>shooting stopped, Joseph Wesbecker had gunned down 20 people. Eight of them
>died. The disturbed gunman then turned his weapon on himself. High levels
>of ProzaC were found in his bloodstream.... Jacqui Miller, shot four times
>in the melee, was one of the last persons to see Wesbecker alive. 'I
>looked up into the face of who was holding the rifle,' she said. 'He was
>completely gone. There was just nothing there of what makes a person a
>person. He was totally out of it'."
>On page 10 of the same book... "Here are some first-hand accounts of life
>on psychiatric drugs.
>PROZAC: "I became violent toward my husband," reported Janet Sims. "I
>would be happy one minute, and the next minute I would be very angry,
>throwing dishes and glass items and other breakable things. I also
>attacked my husband with my fists and tried to scratch his face... While on >Prozac, my marriage fell apart... While on Prozac I started to have
>obsessive suicidal thoughts. [I thought] that I should just destroy my body
>in any way I could."
>RITALIN: Mrs. Verne Watson was compelled by school officials to give the
>drug to her son to handle his 'hyperactivity'. "David would complain he
>didn't like the feel of his body when he took the pills," she said. "It >took his appetite away and he would cry a lot. His dreams got so bad he
>couldn't even talk about them. He would get up in the night and walk the
>floor for hours. His body would shake and quiver something terrible."
>Finally one day, her son collapsed before school and told her, "I just
>can't take them anymore, they're torturing me."
>Recall, folks... the boy in Oregon who shot up his friends in school? He
>was on Prozak. One of the classmates said he had a totally blank look on
>his face. When he was tackled and held down by the boys, they said, "He
>kept yelling, 'just shoot me! Shoot me!' " The boy will be tried as an
>adult, yet one wonders if he had any choice about taking Prozak. The boy
>in Arkansas had been on Ritilin. He will also be tried as an adult.
>Without referring to the newspaper article, I can't recall which was which,
>but both in Pennsylvania and Arkansas the friends said the shooters drew
>pentagrams and "666"'s on notebooks. Is this rash of shootings a result of
>psychotropic drugs being given to the children in combination with satanic
>cult involvement? Whatever the cause it seems apparent the innocent
>children are being used to further the passing of more stringent gun laws.
>It might be a good idea to get articles and give the information to state
>legislators who will fall for the propaganda they're fed and vote our
>gun-rights out of existence.
>PENNSYLVANIA legislators have introduced - already - a "gun control
>package" to keep guns out of the hands of children. However, when the
>teen-agers in Pennsylvania tortured and hung a friend who was going to
>reveal their plans to run away, it wasn't a front-page story. It appeared
>on page 56 near the obituaries. Why? THEY DIDN'T USE GUNS. Who cares if
>a child dies by hanging or axing? or KILLS by a rope or an axe? Our
>children are being used to further gun confiscation the same as the OKCity
>bombing was used to implement the "Anti-Terrorism Act" and the so-called
>WAR ON DRUGS is being used to confiscate tainted property. This
>information is useless unless it is brought to the attention of those state
>legislators who are making the laws under which their constitutents live or
>die - are free or enslaved.
>The U.S. Congress can pass all the gun laws it wants which only apply to
>the federal zone (Washington, D.C.) and territories and possessions. Watch
>your states, folks. You'll see this is a true statement. Your state
>governments will be passing the implementing legislation. Take a look at
>the forfeiture laws in New Jersey. It isn't just drugs. According to
>Congressman Henry Hyde the state laws now allow property seizure for all
>felonies... including shop lifting.

Editor's Note: I find this frightening news, especially since elimination of private property by rebels is one of the points called for in Carl Marx and Friedrich Engles' 10-Point Plan for Communism. To read more about this 10-Point Plan, go to
