    Join Fight Colorectal Cancer for a webinar that will detail what resources exist to help patients navigate the very expensive waters of cancer treatment. You will hear from a person who is on the front lines of the battle: Elaine Martinez, a case manager with the Colorectal CareLine at the Patient Advocate Foundation. Elaine serves as an active liaison between patients and their insurers, employers and/or creditors to resolve insurance, job retention, and/or debt crisis matters relative to their diagnosis of colorectal cancer. Her responsibilities include: exploring reimbursement levels for prescribed colorectal cancer treatments, researching available clinical trials for this patient population and facilitating enrollment into appropriate patient resource programs for both the uninsured and underinsured colorectal patients.

    • FOX25 WFXT-TV Boston Bias

      NOTE: In accordance with Title 17 U.S.C. section 107, this material is reproduced for non-profit educational purposes only. For more information go to: http://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/17/107.shtml Young college grads and students work as interns at media companies bringing their sometimes Stalinist Political Correctness with them. On a previous occasion a report on FOX25 (WFXT-TV) News in Boston about crime included the pervasive "history of mental illness" of a suspect. I spoke with a young man who said he was "assignment editor" at the station. I asked why that phrase was included in the report. Did he think that mental illness causes crime, I asked. He said some do. I asked which ones in general caused crime and which ones were applied to the suspect? He was stumped and agreed to change the report. Some FOX25 on air personalities told me "I just read what they write." to explain why they included the phrase. Responding to the example in this video clip, when I called FOX 25 in August 2011, I think it was the same young man I spoke to previously. He put me on hold when I identified myself explaining why I called. I tried again and he put me on hold again. I called a third time and left a message for their latest News Director, McGonagle. He is the third FOX25 News Director in a row to whom I wrote actual letters about this issue. They indicate they are clueless and not skeptical about psychiatry. I worked in radio during college. Newsmen used the same technique for annoying listeners. They put the caller on hold. Not much has changed in the house of news gatherers for over 50 years. There are protected groups which are portrayed as victims: homosexuals, Black Americans, and women. Individuals do not matter, only members of groups. Because they are victims, members of these groups may not be criticized by non members. The Boston Herald and other news outlets have added a fourth group of victims, i.e., Muslims. Criticizing them is a major offense among interns. Persons with disabilities are not victims. They are not entitled to protection from criticism. Police, prosecutors, lawyers, and journalists demonize them due to their biases.

        • Music program (2007)

          6 pieces with copyleft music from the group Lars Skandal Revival were recorded at the patient organization RSMH in Lund. Then these six music videos were combined into one television program. As is clear from the credits, most of the work was done by another person. I distribute my films through community television stations, public access television, open channel, local television channels or whatever it is called in your country. Normally I distribute my films in Sweden, but since it required only very limited work to create an English version of this television program, I decided to create also an English version. But even though I contacted several ten different television stations in English speaking countries, nobody was willing to distribute it. Which means that this is the only one of the films I have uploaded which has not been broadcast.

            • Raid of the 562 Medical Marijuana Non-Profit Patient Collective (without warrant)

              In early 2010, the City of Long Beach, California passed an ordinance requiring patients to have permits to cultivate or distribute medical marijuana. Even though all other city licenses cost around $300.00 with the more expensive permits in the $1,000 range, Long Beach charges a minimum $14,742.00 for a non-refundable opportunity to be in a lottery for marijuana permits. Since patients can only belong to one (1) patient collective, the result has been large, 17,000 sq. foot manufacturing facilities that expose patient groups to potential federal criminal liability. To ensure the city gets its $14,000 and additional $12,000 for cultivation permits plus between $20,000 and $30,000 annual fee, Long Beach police and officials regularly raid non-profit collectives operating in accordance with California's state law decriminalization provisions. Even though cities cannot issue permits for activities prohibited by federal law, Long Beach has issued hundreds of criminal citations and put patients in jail. A select few marijuana businesses -- with large manufacturing facilities and what seems to be endless capitalization -- have won the lottery and received permits in the mail. How are non-profit groups of patients supposed to afford gigantic manufacturing facilities? This video shows raids of one of the non-profit groups in Long Beach. Raids and harassment have taken place since the end of 2010. This raid did NOT result in arrests for violation of state law. The only thing patients were charged with is NOT paying for and having the Long Beach marijuana permit.
