        Other countries get to the same resources our government puts off limits, then sells it back to us... Episode 2 for the independent web effort http://mannycaneffort.com to help inform people about the obstruction of energy production we face from government and environmentalist group lawsuits. Hosted by a talking dummy "Manny Can" the material is communicated in a quirky but clear way. Our government in collusion with the green agenda has created a war against the energy we need, oil, gas, coal, nuclear. Much of is goes unreported, because the media is intimidated by the greens. Hence the invention of Manny Can, a way to get the word our about the obstruction and the costs. The site is loaded with links to the real researchers that are working hard to keep our energy available to us. The effort was created by the producers at avpfilms.net as a self funded effort to help serve our great country, you know, We the People, who actually are interested in the truth , ward off the oncoming regulation and taxation from our government during these already disastrous economic times.

            Jon Stuen-Parker's passionate presentation from the 2009 Ibogaine Forum. This video was Produced and Edited by Mark Krieglstein / Wiggle Puppy Productions. © 2009 For More Info About Jon Parker Please Visit - http://yalemedicine.yale.edu/ym_su01/needle/needle1.html For More Info About The Forum & Ibogaine Please Visit - http://www.neu.edu/ssdp/ibogaine/ 2009 Boston Ibogaine Forum at Northeastern University Ibogaine is a revolutionary poly-drug addiction interrupter that happens to be a schedule I drug, meaning that according to the FDA, there are no medicinal indications and a high likelihood for abuse. Unlike the hype of the counter-culture's sacramental-like advocacy of LSD and mushrooms in the 1960s, very few people knew of ibogaine or had ever taken it; unfortunately what little was known led it to be condemned by Richard Nixon with all other so-called ''hallucinogens." Indigenous to the West African Republic of Gabon, ibogaine is believed to be the principle active ingredient in the iboga plant, which has been used by the people of the Bwiti religion. For centuries, the Bwiti utilized iboga in rituals involving the veneration of deities or communication with ancestors as well as for treatments of various physical and mental ailments. In the west, however, the use of ibogaine has primarily been for treatment of chemical dependence to various drugs of abuse, including: nicotine, cocaine, alcohol, heroin and methadone/suboxone. Check out www.ibogaine.com or log onto USTREAM.TV and watch the entire conference (search wpptv) or see link below. Also feel free to search YouTube for tons of video testimonials and documentaries regarding ibogaine's religious and medical implications.

                  Urge your Representative to attend a joint forum organized by the Leadership Conference for Guaranteed Health Care. In the last two decades over a dozen state health reform acts have attempted to provide universal health care coverage, and failed. Critical analysis of these models is essential to national health care reform. The February 25 forum will consider the most recent state health care overhaul this country has seen. What can we learn from Massachusetts and is it a model for national health policy?
