REOPEN THE $200 BILLION DOLLAR BIG-TOBACCO SETTLEMENT! Did segregationists in Big-Government and Big-Corporate-Tobacco HIDE data showing a countervailing LONGEVITY-EFFECT in order to secure a settlement & avoid bankruptcy from individual tobacco lawsuits? This could show the first proven ability to extend mankind’s maximum lifespan and if so, then by definition deliver unheard of reductions in all of the main NCD’s – Non Communicable Diseases – Cardiovascular/Heart Disease, Diabetes, Cancer, Depression, Asthma, and Arthritis.
Did we really create an entire charter industry in order to PROTECT kids from PUBLIC-SCHOOL Teachers – Seriously? Here is evidence that Big-Government and Big-Tobacco Corporate and Attorney Interests were all in together on the deal to hurriedly secure solvency for Big Tobacco and they deceived the public to do it. Big Corporate interests, Big Government and Big Science all had to hide this scientific information or else the tobacco settlement would NOT have happened – so they hid it.
HERE it is; the SMOKING GUN – Use this information to Fight for Kids to WIN! Historical documents now being made public show (bigot and segregationist-led and controlled) big-government, big-company, and big-science taking concerted coordinated actions inexplicable otherwise but that they were hiding information bearing on LONGEVITY and SMOKING. Here are Big-Tobacco corporate memo’s which show these actions as being clearly intentional to hide the truth of the scientific data. We must Re-Crunch the old-original five largest-ever longitudinal human-study datasets to find the truth.
DRAFT SAMPLE LETTER to Longevity Experts
To whom it may concern,
IS IT POSSIBLE THERE’S A POSITIVE FACTOR RELATED TO SMOKING TOBACCO (such as decreased lung function and oxygen uptake) not known till now? (to longevity researchers such as attended the recent RAADfest.COM)
A “yes,” it’s POSSIBLE there’s a countervailing positive factor to smoking will be a Call to Action – to Fight for Kids, OK? Many children and teachers are beneficiaries of the tobacco settlement. Are they being done right?
The frequent school-board speaker and tobacco-documents provider does not claim proof of anything, but provides evidence and poses a hypothesis. Corroborative information purports to show a mildly contravening (pos.) factor acting to increase Maximum Lifespan Average (top 10% only) in ALL studies done related to tobacco on both humans and animals. Examples are given in all five large human-study data-sets and numerous quotes of internal tobacco and ACS researchers are cited retrieved and taken from the many millions of documents archived as part of the tobacco case. Before looking for possible collusion there must be motivation for collusion or any wrongdoing of any sort – the first thing we must ask is;
IS A POSITIVE HEALTH FACTOR RELATED TO SMOKING EVEN REMOTELY POSSIBLE?
If so, it is then this could mean years added to the lives of ALL of the MAJOR killers; cancers, heart disease, strokes, all of them and be the 1st Scientifically Demonstrated Physiological Extension of the Human Lifespan Beyond its Natural Normative Limit (if proved true).
Why bring this information out now?
(1) What does “increased longevity” really mean? Increased longevity means the all of the big killers, Cancer, Heart Disease, Strokes – all of them could see as much as double-digit reductions in CURRENT mortality rates for these disease – Why is this a potentially BIG deal, why all the fuss about a few more years if that? For perspective keep in mind that even a relatively small 5% effect on any one of these, let alone all of them is normally cause for great celebration. NCD’s – Non Communicable Diseases – Cardiovascular/Heart Disease, Diabetes, Cancer, Depression, Asthma, and Arthritis – NCD’s in California alone cost over $100 billion per year. Also of note; this year (2016) for the first time in American history the national mortality rate shows us dying sooner than our predecessors so children born today cannot count on living longer than their parents.
(2) Two in three children in America are financially insecure – this means housing and food are constant stressor and every child knows exactly where they stand in the social order of priorities – children know exactly where they fit in the order of things. Every time a teacher has a student fetch a plastic toy bin to empty and put under a leaking roof in their classroom – children know exactly where they stand in the order of things. We (adults) are damaged, not the children. One in Three Children in the U.S. is abused or neglected to the degree that it would be criminally prosecutable. Children aren’t doing the neglect or abuse, adults are; adults that were once children and were treated in this same disrespectful fashion – now we treat all children like this institutionally and wash our hands of the matter. In some regions of the country so many children suffer so greatly that it is no different than an epidemic except instead of being transmitted by air or water the affliction is behaviorally transmitted. In these regions the high numbers of adults and children suffering crisis has spawned pathological cultures and communities where all residents suffer with equanimity, rich and poor alike, and the pathology becomes ingrained into the very institutions and laws in these communities.
(3) Public Education in America DID NOT fail because of “bad” teachers or “bad” kids or “bad” parents! But make no mistake, both private and public education in America are STILL failing, although no one will know it for a long time since there won’t be any way to tell. Additional whole generations of kids will be lost. Both public and private schools are failing; WE ARE FAILING OUR KIDS, OUR KIDS AREN’T FAILING US!
(4) Big-Government, Big-Education, and Big-Corporate Segregationist-Interests have TEACHERS and KIDS on the ropes! Did PUBLIC EDUCATION in AMERICA *really* FAIL BECAUSE OF TEACHERS? We are all told that times are desperate and we must SAVE our children from Public Schools by opening Charter Schools as fast as humanly possible to SAVE them from… from what? Did we really create an entire charter industry in order to PROTECT kids from teachers – Seriously?
What is the “BIG PICTURE?”
Standing back from all the minutiae provided and shown in these documents and papers now being released enables one to begin to see a larger picture take form, like standing back from a painting by Monet who used pointillist dots of color imperceptible as representing an image until one stands back a suitable distance. Perusing the various data points provided in these papers and more to follow will show and make visible the degree of collusion between Big Science and Big Government to get Big-Company Tobacco completely off the hook and safe from future lawsuits. Read the provided materials and weep as the various pieces assemble to form a cohesive image of what transpired not that long ago right at the very beginning of mankind’s New Century and Millennium – 2000. All of us know that we are nearing our pre-adult period as a as an evolved species just getting the feel of our surrounding and our own capabilities, like a teenager that still must figure out what to do with such long arms and legs, our first forays into the world may be awkward and fumbling, but we will soon enough find our place to take control of our destiny and find harmony with our surroundings and ourselves.
To Live Long and Prosper, or NOT; that REALLY IS the Question.
It is critical to determine if a countervailing (positive-health outcome) CONFOUNDING-Factor might possibly exist – is it possible? Might there have been a mildly positive confounding factor either in tobacco or separately as the consequence of the act of smoking due to decreased lung function, or some other factor? Is this possible, can you help?
That this needs investigation there is NO DOUBT and we await only additional facts – but this may not be all of the wrong-doing. With hindsight we can also now see that there was an untoward degree of tight coordination and agreement among these parties all along which close relationships continued long after the settlement. The closeness of Big-Tobacco. Big-Government & Big-Science was not seen as a big concern at the time. Now, as more is known about the whole affair, this closeness now appears increasingly incriminating and suspicious in retrospect.
It now appears there may have been planning involved from day one to siphon off this $200 Billion Dollar “windfall” of education funding directly back into Big-Company pockets through the planned dismantling of the nation’s public education system and replacing of it with a FOR-PROFIT charter system.
A Public Crowdfunding Effort may perhaps be undertaken soon, or perhaps financed by the government itself or even independent attorneys and firms may step up to see it done and more quickly then be able to secure a piece of the anticipated settlement to come, even larger than the first. All this will happen – it is each of our responsibilities to children to do all each of us can to make it happen as fast as possible.
EDUCATORS, TEACHERS, PARENTS, Stand up for both kids & yourselves too – Kids CANNOT! WE HAVE TO TAKE ACTION on this because CHILDREN do not have a voice or the knowledge to protect each other. WE HAVE TO ACT because 1 in 3 kids is neglected or abused as the result of this societal indifference and WE are complicit in this neglect and abuse IF WE FAIL to act now and fix this – if not you, me, us – then who?
SEGREGATION: Did Too Many Bad Teachers *really* KILL Public Education, or did the deep-south segregationist lobby which is synonymous with Big-Old-Boys-style Big-Company BIG-TOBACCO? Same as back-room Chicago-Style big-old-boys – see the pattern, got the picture?
Flush with cash and still celebrating their big win over the public interest; Big-Company and Attorney tobacco and other interests then undertook a well-planned and coordinated lobbying effort sustained for decades and to this very day against public education. Major efforts were made by those benefiting most from the settlement windfall to donate and influence legit entities and dilute their messaging from within. This dark cabal composed of settlement profiteer’s appears to have simultaneously created countless sham but supposedly public organizations with misleading names from their real intent and purpose.
And finally, this new power block then set about to secure new laws and ways to access those same education dollars through FOR-PROFIT schools and charters. There was, and is, nothing to stop them. They did it. They are doing it now. What are we going to do about it? If YOU can do something, do it, because 1 in 3 kids deprived and ignored is the result not of their being deprivation of financial resources alone – WORSE than the financial deprivation of our own children and their education system has been and still is the apathetic psychologically hurtful, traumatized and damaged encircling community, culture, and society that stands silent to this day, watching it all come down. Be silent no more. Demand an Investigation and Re-Opening of the Tobacco Settlement! Enough is enough – Do not go silently slinking into the cold dark night and drag your children in with you – Save Public Education and Public Teachers in America and Face Deep-South Segregationist Big Tobacco Down – Knock them out COLD this Time – Fight for Kids!
DID “BAD” TEACHERS *really* DESTROY public education in America and make it unworkable? How does this make sense to anyone? Is this a great example of a “hole” in our collective heads, perhaps?

There are Longevity and Techno-Gaia-nist CROWDFUNDING websites;
These might be ideal to post the “ASK” and Question that needs answering – for example – A number of routes exist for time to be donated on the big government supercomputers that are needed to RE-crunch the huge data-sets that, for example, are used in the five largest longitudinal studies of smoking and health – and which thanks to a recent act of Congress, the public now has access to without having to be a member of the American Cancer society, any Univ. Research Consortiums, or Big Tobacco and this means not having to sign an agreement to not research any positive outcomes nor publish any positive results related to smoking and health. It hasn’t been possible to even get to the data until now.
CROWDFUNDING? – This is perfect for crowdfunding – crunch the data and do what is called a Meta-Study of all prior existing studies – this is EXACTLY what all of my documentation and verbiage is, a preliminary to a full scale meta-study and re-crunching of the old data and old studies in light of modern knowledge of systems-physiology and genomics – all of which is ideal for a small crowdfunded effort in the quarter of a million range or less, perhaps as little as $50k with enough donated time and resources.
ACTION! – After looking at the old data, if anything is found, then things will already be in place to look at more recent information related to Big-Tobacco goings-on, yes? There may also be a current need to adequately search and re-organize the current tobacco repository of millions of tobacco documents. Current Big-Tobacco documents can be added by court request and public insistence – more recent research and memos can be secured from worldwide operations given that this is how things are done now that Big Tobacco has gotten even BIGGER since the settling of the prior class action threat by Congress.
IF NOT TEACHERS; what is KILLING Public Education in America? We usually blame the most voiceless victims themselves. We do still; children, elderly, homeless, sick and infirm.
These are the burdens on society that overtaxed the financial system and rotted-out the moral and legal codes to Destroy Public Education, right?
TIE-DYE OLD-DUDE IN VIDEO says he wants a DO-OVER of the $200 Billion Big-Tobacco/Big-Education Settlement REVEAL at 2 hours-into the attached BECON TV video, check it out.
HERE ARE THE REAL REASONS WHY KIDS CAN’T LEARN:
– ONE IN THREE is abused or neglected and this IS NOT OK, OK?
– Any Justice Applied against Kids is an Immoral Injustice against Humanity, OK?
– To train the dog, horse, or child to war is be the lowest form of life imaginable, OK?
– Error is an Opportunity to Learn, Not an Opportunity to Punish or Be Punished, OK?
DEMAND A DO-OVER OF THE $200 BILLION DOLLAR TOBACCO & EDUCATION SETTLEMENT!
DID PUBLIC EDUCATION REALLY FAIL BECAUSE OF TEACHERS?
That is was teachers that killed public education in America and made it unworkable; DOES THIS REALLY MAKE ANY SENSE?
IF NOT TEACHERS, WHAT? What is KILLING Public Education in America? Anyone know? Anyone want to guess?
Various EXERPTS from the Recently Revealed 2016 Tobacco Longevity Documents and report;
1st Scientifically Demonstrated Physiological Extension of the Human Lifespan Beyond its Natural Normative Limit (if found true).
In laboratory experiments with animals and insects a reduced caloric intake, increased anti-oxidant gene expression, lowered body temperature, lowered metabolism, and reduced oxygen availability have been scientifically proven or demonstrated to also hold true in humans. The results of related work on the lifespans of primates, almost as long-lived as we are, are only just now coming in. If the implications of this research prove out, then what would be shown is the first ever demonstration of the extension of the maximum human lifespan MLS beyond its natural limit. It is known that maximum rather than average lifespan provides a more meaningful indicator of the underlying rate of aging.
The increase of maximum lifespan, MLS can be shown using pre-existing data from multiple large epidemiological studies. Only now have these studies begun to provide data sets among the oldest-old large enough that a positive result might be conclusively shown. In corroboration of these unanticipated results, one need not rely solely on the results of epidemiological studies. Both animal and human studies having laboratory controls and protocols corroborate the data from human epidemiological studies. These appear to show a physiological extension of the human lifespan may be possible beyond the natural maximum limit of from 105 to 110 years for those that have had only average or below average exposure to tobacco or tobacco products – to as much as 115 – 125 years for those that have had a very mild continuous or one brief intense period of exposure to tobacco followed by a long period of its absence. In support of this are the results of existing government and taxpayer supported institutional research studies and controlled experiments involving both humans and animals. Each of the five largest longitudinal U.S. epidemiological studies appear to show an increased maximum life span attainable of 5% to 15% to be more likely, not less, in those who are classified as non-abusers that smoke moderately for 5-20 years and then quit than for NEVER-SMOKERS.
By eliminating compulsive users of tobacco from the data and focusing on former smokers only, a detailed review of each of the FIVE LARGEST nation-wide longitudinal epidemiological studies of smoking and health show increased 5-15% life-spans for many responsible light/moderate and ex-smokers even when compared to the maximum life-spans, the oldest 10% of never-smokers. This is astounding upon reflection. It is however of note that the differences are relatively small per any one study. As a result, this already small variation and confounding factor is yet further obscured by the fact that the oldest-old in such studies tend to be very few in any one study. In any single study such anomalies were thus typically excused away. It is notable that a pattern can be seen in that this same anomalous small difference is evident in not one, or a couple, but in all of the main studies ever undertaken.
The anomalous data indicating a beneficial longevity protective factor is MOST PRONOUNCED when COMPARING FORMER and LIGHT SMOKERS to *Never-Smokers.*
Because the differences are relatively small the negative factors far outweigh the positive in most people so that no advisement against smoking need be reconsidered in the least – rather, a new more positive motivation to quit is envisioned. Also because these differences are small compared to the harm at least, only by being aware of and looking for corroborating data from other human and also animal studies was the overall pattern of consistently outlying data points made visible for any to see.
This problem was exacerbated by a peculiar edict coming from the Attorney General’s office in which it was stated that researchers should “avoid comparisons of quit-former to never-smokers” in regard the publishing of epidemiological research and data on humans.
Internal researcher and management memo’s point out that despite the positive results showing animal models living longer, since everyone knows smoking kills, the results are meaningless.
Everyone knew. Including the American Cancer Society – to even be granted access to the largest datasets one had to first sign an agreement to not publish nor use the data to show any positive effects. This was not science as it is supposed to be done, not remotely. Everyone colluded. When no cancer could be caused in animal models from smoke inhalation, skin irritation on the necks of the animals was noted where they were fit into collars for the smoke inhalation experiments and this evolved into the modern standard test for carcinogenicity – not to have animals smoke but to paint their skin with tobacco tar and call it close-enough.
In study after study a strong implicit bias was found, for example in this Oregon study; quote; “In subsequent analyses we collapse the oldest age groups and examine individuals aged 75 and over to minimize the likelihood of chance variation in the mortality of the oldest decedents and to lessen their impact on life expectancies on earlier age categories. The life expectancy derived from our data for the oldest males was 1.3 years greater than that estimated by the vital statistics data.”
The rationale for halting chronic-inhalation longevity studies is here directly quoted from a December 21, 1976 internal Tobacco company memo that was SPECIFICALLY in reference to a chart in a study clearly showing the smoking animals to be longer-lived – the entire graph-line was clearly shifted to the right ahead of its trailing mirror twins, the eyes don’t lie; “IT APPEARS TO ME THAT EVEN POSITIVE RESULTS WOULD BE MEANINGLESS IN LIGHT OF THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE WHERE STATISTICAL EVIDENCE INDICATES THAT LONGEVITY IS ADVERSELY AFFECTED BY SMOKING.”
Note that no mention was ever made in regard there being any humane or animal cruelty issues, nor any scientific, monetary, or time factor issues mentioned having anything to do with the decision making process leading to the cessation of their animal research longevity efforts. And here is yet another such quote taken from a subsequently published paper, “This second inhalation study was the first designed to use long-term or lifetime chronic smoke exposure. Future studies were to address such variables as specie sensitivity, smoke exposure regimen, smoke dose, cigarette type, and duration of exposure. However, after initiation of this second study, it was decided NOT TO PERFORM ANY OTHER LONG-TERM SMOKE INHALATION STUDIES thus, the main objective of theis second inhalation study was to determine the potential biological activity of daily…”
And perhaps most damning; Smoking and Tobacco Control Monograph No. 8, American Cancer Society; Relative Risks (RR’s) – “To assess the impact on mortality risk among FORMER SMOKERS by time since stopping, we followed the suggestion of the 1990 U.S. Surgeon General’s report to use Current Smokers as the Reference Category (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 1990)
Included studies are;
U.S. Veterans: 1954 – 300,000 cohorts – 26 years of follow-up.
Cancer Prevention Study, CPS I: 1959 – 1,078,894 cohorts – 12 years of follow-up.
Kaiser Permanente: 1979 – 60,838 cohorts – 6.1 years of follow-up
Nurses Health Study: 1976 – 121,700 cohorts – 12 years of follow-up.
CPS II: 1982 – 1,185,106 cohorts – 6 years of follow-up.
In light of all of the above-noted peculiarities and many others in the hundreds of pages provided – It may be that a human hibernation-response (a metabolic slowing, not torpor, not true hibernation) affecting a wide range of genes and physiological systems may have been triggered by the reduced oxygen and/or reduced oxygen alone, or perhaps also in combination with one or more other factors, said factor or factors could be a biologic factor in tobacco, perhaps nicotine related or other, or nothing to do with tobacco other than as a causal agent to reduce oxygen uptake in a specific way.
Only in the past few years have these prior anomalies and ambiguities become explainable as being part of a pattern just now being made visible by the science of our own current day.
When extreme polarization occurs on a scientific matter involving strong emotional and intellectual issues then conclusion vindication preconceived convictions are often desired so badly by those on both sides that scientific integrity can be compromised, intentionally and inadvertently.
BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA IS THE 7th LARGEST SCHOOL DISTRICT IN THE NATION with 260 Schools
PUBLIC SPEAKER IN TYE-DIE AT 2 HOURS into the video AUGUST 2, 2016 BECON TV – at SCHOOL BOARD OF BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA regular meeting
$200 Billion Big Education & Big Tobacco Reveal at 2 hours – https://becon223.eduvision.tv/default.aspx?q=CT1wecDsedAzX1a1lJwfwQ%253d%253d#.V6FNKmbV2ic.facebook
Mr. Sirbola is providing papers gathered and written decades ago that describe the situation as he saw things twenty or so years ago and don’t reflect the writer’s current views on the matter in many instances – the papers written years ago describe the tobacco companies and their presumably sheepish scientists as likely bumpkins in relation to the attorneys where all suffer as victims of a generalized societal zeitgeist to scapegoat themselves without really realizing they are doing it.
The authors current view is one that asks whether or not there was collusion between all involved parties equally in on the game to secure profit and gain for themselves. It should be looked into. The settlement was critical to the very survival of Big Tobacco to clear all of them of lawsuits that threatened to BANKCRUPT them just as it had the asbestos industry.
Mr. Sirbola also makes mention that he may have both inadvertently started the tobacco settlement case and then later had influence in its ending. If so this would have been the result of a prior history and involvement at the inception and end-period of the tobacco settlement, and is mentioned as footnotes of interest, not of relevance (plus I’m curious). In regard these two fanciful conjectures, although confident of the facts claimed, the hypothesized linkages between those facts may indeed be circumstantial – can be looked into much later if ever.
THIS NEEDS LOOKING INTO: What of the curiously concurrent timelines showing the rise of the Charters and the Tobacco Settlement at the same time?
We are all told that times are desperate and we must SAVE our children from Public Schools by opening Charter Schools as fast as humanly possible to SAVE them from… from what? Did we really create an entire charter industry in order to PROTECT kids from teachers – Seriously?
The public speaker at this Aug 2 school board meeting and provider of this new information about the tobacco settlement now questions whether the concurrent timelines of the tobacco settlement and the big push for Big Companies to take over Big Education was simply coincidental. Huge amounts of money have stopped flowing one way to flow another, like the great Mississippi suddenly up and reversing course. It hasn’t been just Federal monies to be diverted and stopped from flowing, but the much larger State and local monies are now flowing from the public domain into private Big Company hands at a torrential speed. If this was intentional and not coincidental then it was a very impressive sleight of hand and very smoothly executed as well – if indeed that is what it was! I wonder, do you as well?
SEGREGATION IS AS SEGREGATIONISTS DO – Yup!
All gobbled-up – a whole big huge branch of government, Public-Education – CHOPPED RIGHT OFF – Almost – Add-in in the local education money now going to charters plus other dollars and the number is staggering – the $200 billion would be just the very top of a giant iceberg of a public rip-off all done in the name of saving our children from – from what again, let’s hear it again, what is the group-consensus, supposedly at least – Teachers – Right? Really?
BIG Tobacco IS WHAT “THE SOUTH” IS – Get it?
BIG Tobacco IS the “SOUTH,” and all it represents, OK?
I wonder if the sudden transfer of education money & public wealth into private hands was due at least in part to the $200 Billion lure kept constant over time coincident with the ultra-conservatives return to separation of the “races” as they see it by BREAKING UP PUBLIC EDUCATION to return America to the SHAME of SEGREGATION?
The Big-Education, Big-Southern US Tobacco, Big Segregationist Christian-far-right-Government Health-Care (American Cancers Society, International Consortium of Research Universities, National Institutes of Health). The carrot of opportunity in the $200 Billion and the headiness of the legal, political and financial power it carried may be what got the whole Charter-school as the way to bring-back-segregation thing started and the basis that keeps it going to this day – this wouldn’t surprise me. Would it surprise any reader? I wonder along with you – too.
The Charter movement and the Tobacco Settlement coincided – We are dismantling our public education system which in the 1860’s was looked upon as being something implicit in the very Constitution of the United States itself.
End the public school system; Why? Seriously, stop a moment and give a solid answer if you can – why exactly?
Competition, especially free market competition without rules DOES NOT lead to optimums, it leads to minimums that optimize for limited bounded survival, not thriving and un-bounded growing. The foundation of what lay people think of as “free market competition” and “evolution” does NOT lead to optimums, mankind is NOT a “peak” of evolution, nor is a lion, tiger, bear, elephant or blue whale – evolution is BLIND and does not have a goal or target of developing great or superior intelligence, strength, or speed – it actually seeks to avoid having to expend the energy these all require if it can manage to survive well enough without. Opinions and facts can become blurred – Fact. There’s no such thing as “trickle down,” to an economic scientist it’s like saying the Earth is flat. The firmness of ones belief in the Earth’s flatness changes its curvature not one bit.
In the short 3 minute presentation/speech to the school board of the school district of Broward county, SBBC & SDBC, Florida on August 2, 2016 – public speaker; Michael Sirbola in addition to speaking to a POSSIBLE REVISITING and possibly RE-OPENING of the $200 BILLION Big-Tobacco & Big-Education Settlement DO-OVER there was discussion made to local children being left in the streets and its relation to community and institutional complex post-traumatic stress syndrome as a spectrum disorder.
1 IN 3 IS NOT OK, OK? IT IS TIME TO FILE AN INSTITUTIONAL Complex-PTSD CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ON BEHALF OF TEACHERS, STUDENTS, NURSES, HEALTH CARE WORKERS, POLICE, FIRE AND FIRST RESPONDERS IN BROWARD, OK? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! This proposed class-action lawsuit can be loosely patterned on the $1 Billion suit recently WON in Compton, California which was filed by community, teachers and students jointly – all on the same side of the table at last!
This is the terminology recently incorporated in a $1 billion dollar settlement out of Compton, California that is alluring for its simplicity but which has an implicit negative bias and condemnation built into it against the very children and teachers which were on the same side in this landmark settlement where CPTSD was the central key to the entire case.
I’ve been calling for our local school district to ask the CDC to come to Broward, Florida to use us as a test case of how to flip a district from nasty to nice – from the one that very recently was known around the world as the place that handcuffs and removes more kids from classrooms in this brutal fashion than anywhere else on the planet to… to what? That is the question.
A LARGEST EVER CPTSD CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FOR ALL OF FLORIDA?
A CLASS-ACTION CPTSD LAWSUIT FILED ON BEHALF OF ALL CHILD & ELDERLY & EMERGENCY & HEALTH WORKERS, HEALERS, TEACHERS & RESCUERS AS A GROUP;
Broward county recently spent $6 million on a contract awarded to Lauren’s Kids – overseen by a local HERO-ACTIVIST for kids – to undertake a comprehensive and statistically valid study to dig down and find the real answers to the degree of homelessness, hunger, abuse and neglect of children in Broward in COLD HARD NUMBERS – NOT NUMBERS ON POVERTY – THIS HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH BEING POOR OR RICH – and what they found was this – 1 in 3 children is abused or neglected criminally by the age of 18.
It seems clear that filing a CPTSD CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT jointly by all those that have been stressed under a starved beyond reason Florida health un-care system for the young and old and all those dealing with them from teachers to police to firemen and health care workers and so many more… patterned on the Compton CA CLASS-ACTION suit for ONE BILLION DOLLARS that was WON – filed for all of Florida, just south Florida, or perhaps just begin right here in Broward Florida, OK?
PSYCHO-SOCIAL-TRAUMA TOXINS IN OUR EDUCATIONAL SYSTEM – ONE IN THREE IS NOT OK, OK?
Any Justice Applied against Kids is an Immoral Injustice against Humanity, OK?
To train the dog, horse, or child to war is be the lowest form of life imaginable, OK?
Error is an Opportunity to Learn, Not an Opportunity to Punish or Be Punished, OK?
Did Too Many Bad Teachers *really* KILL Public Education, or did the deep-south segregationist lobby which is synonymous with Big-Old-Boys-style Big-Company BIG-TOBACCO? Chicago-Style Institutional CPTSD, yes? What of our schools and children here in Broward, FL.?
I prefer speaking of CPTSD-minds and behaviors as being “activated vs inactivated” minds – which is much better than the phrases “behavioral transmission of neurotoxicity” or “behavioral transmission of neurodegeneration” – visit http://archive.rcgov.org/lf20031001/LF100103-02.pdf – which also better explains “activated and inactivated.”
What’s the functional difference between PTSD and Complex PTSD? What’s the functional difference between PTSD and CPTSD – is it that CPTSD is a spectrum disorder and PTSD isn’t?
What is a spectrum disorder? – Answer – it means we are all on the line somewhere, everyone.
What does it mean to be “ACTIVATED” or “INACTIVATED?” What does it mean to “LEAN FORWARD” versus “AWAY-FROM?” What determines this difference?
What happens when you have an arrowhead, meteorite, and extinct giant porpoise jawbone section in your pocket? What happens if you show one of these – to any one? Can you think of any ways to tell how to separate the “Lean-Forward” from “Lean-Back” types of folk? Show a child sitting with other children at a table, or a teacher sitting with other teachers at a table an EXTINCT JAWBONE from a local Florida creek or perhaps a locally found ARROWHEAD – watch to see, do they as one all move forward to see better, with the closest reaching out for it and all around happy and smiling? Or the opposite; do all in attendance pull away while making scrunchy-faces? This is the secret hiding in the middle of it all as to why teaching either does, or doesn’t work. Yup, it really and truly is that simple. It’s biology. Biology is culture; culture is biology – Some brains are reactive and “activated” and some brains aren’t.
What does it mean to be higher than one wishes on the CPTSD-Spectrum? Is it good, or bad to be lower, or is that even a “thing?”
How does CPTSD affect how a person thinks and see’s the world?
How can one tell where one is on the CPTSD spectrum?
How can one tell where one’s community fits on the CPTSD spectrum?
“Holes” in one’s logic and brain you say – say what? The holes in our logic and head help us to process information faster so we can react faster to danger. Holes are good just like fire is good – in the right place, time, and for the right purpose used correctly. One cannot process all incoming information as if it were all equal – we’d overload instantly. Driving down the road one needs to focus on the road, passengers, radio, all kinds of things but NOT everything, one tries not to overly admire the passing clouds overhead, the cool Ferrari just behind and to the left, the birds on the wires, ad infinitum – we rely on “holes” in our perceptions AND in our heads and physical brains as well – our physical neurons are sculpted and the shape of our thoughts and of our physical brains changes and alters constantly as the result of actions upon us by our environment and by our own internally generated actions, desires and free will and life spirit.
It’s not just about what one wants to learn today, it’s also about what one wants to forget today, OK?
What is Traumatic Stress?
One is being reactive when one takes offence at being told one has a place on the CPTSD-Spectrum. So why tell someone this? We aren’t animals – animals have less choice than we do as to whether they wish to Rise Above Their Programmed Biology by being self-aware of their hierarchical inclinations and urge to see the world dichotomously as good and bad – we are not good or bad and neither is the word. We are not good and bad, we are not with and without holes, we are not CPTSD and Non-CPTSD, these are not real things any of them even though this is exactly how we often see things. There is aware and not aware.
No bad – just not very aware. No good – just more aware.
The reason people coined the term “spectrum” was to communicate that WE ALL have a place on the line, every single last one of us. We All One, OK?
Be proud of the holes in your head, but be wary of them too. “Holes” doesn’t sound good to most people – Have a big hole in your head, brag about it? Seems unlikely – but I’m about to – I’m blind as a bat to all kinds of things other see as absolutely critical to their very survival and existence – I watch teams of brave souls, leaf-blowers held high marching into the fray to move the leaves up the street one way, then back up again, back and forth, confusing the poor wind no end.
When a school districts staff is underfunded, everyone overworked, under-appreciated, and without support or resources – and this is bragged about by ones superiors as being a good thing to be the SMALLEST AND MOST UNDERSTAFFED in the State as a thing of PRIDE – this is called a CPTSD inducing STRESSFUL environment that causes stress-reactive behaviors in people.
To reiterate; What does it mean for a community to see high rates of CPTSD in its community members? Since CPTSD is behaviorally and culturally transmitted there will seldom if ever be communities where just one or two key institutions dealing with the weak and voiceless are found to be suffering from it – it will always be ALL of them, by definition – schools, hospitals, prisons, police – this is what community-wide Complex PTSD is and how it propagates itself.
Ever joked with other adults, or kids, about how heavy and big their books and book bags are? Ever see children carrying books easily twice as large and heavy as they should be but feel it is “too complicated” to fix or do anything about, and say as much? To see one book made into two is NOT rocket-science – big “hole,” see it yet? It is also often heard as an excuse for silly-big books and all else silly besides that this or that silliness is simply “not that persons problem to worry about” when asked, even as we all joke about all the back problems kids have. It is all of our worry, and here is why; there is a toxic traumatizing brain-morphing neuron-killing lethal sweet-smelling-almond-cyanide-like poison that dust and mist and surrounds every little “hole” where an action should have been but isn’t – it erodes the very souls and future abundance of our children because the trauma of these holes and missing actions is noticed and every missed right-action is another blow of a sledge-hammer hit-square on a chisel pointed right into the heart of every living child. Every blow indelibly etches a deeper gouge into the resisting stone and these holes assemble to become stories that we define ourselves by and think ourselves to be – Every too-big book, every time the lights go out needlessly, these are gouges, letters, words, stories of passivity and helplessness being CHISELED into the hearts of our children, and ourselves and those near us, others in the community too, chiseled into all of our hearts as if all were one. The sledgehammer hits its mark; WHAM! Pieces fall to the floor, the dust settles.
A solution such as, perhaps; Load testing would be to see what happens if everything in the school is turned and then additionally, track that at and throughout the entire power grid to see how the system will respond with all 250 school at full-on with lights and all, as unlikely as that may sound, plus model with an overburdened neighborhood and region with the goal to see what the UTILITIES shut-down and other protocols are to insure that emergency, health and school sites are PRIORITIZED in all considerations so that shut-downs are kept to an absolute minimum possible for these. This is done elsewhere by the power utilities, not by the local districts – ideally someone at the meeting would have thought to discuss the necessity that our community leaders to ask or to insist if need be that this be done and at no cost as soon as possible because of the start of school – on nor inquire of the local Big-Power utility.
In a sense, to get a good taste of what ails education in America one would HAVE to visit CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – the next most likely place to COMPTON, CALIFORNIA I would think. Chicago will soon join Compton one hopes in having its TEACHERS and STUDENTS join together in a CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT centering on INSTITUTIONAL COMPLEX PTSD. Will Broward County, Florida be joining Compton and Chicago soon? One needn’t travel to Chicago to determine what the problem is up there, one can look around right here in South Florida and see exactly what the problem is up in Chicago because it has been transplanted down here too! Visit the School Board of Broward County, SBBC, to see a mini-Chicago in action. Chicago-style “politics” is really a euphemism for Chicago-Style-CPTSD, hear me? Time to get real, OK? 1 in 3 abused is not OK, OK? The superintendent’s Chicago-style-Institutional-CPTSD was a healthy seed with solid backing, watering, whatever needed by the Big-Company charter-fans and anti-public-education SEGREGATIONIST interests that was placed here with intent precisely because Broward was so fertile and ready to handcuff those “nasty little black boys” that were the presumed source of all of educations ills, a thing all too often heard said aloud in the halls by adults, ask any child, lots of little ears running underfoot, ya-know?
Broward leads the nation in Military ROTC education – and had, or used to have(?); Its own full-scale in-house police “force” complete with skunkworks doing things they shouldn’t(?) just like in the movies by all accounts, but I digress… these are all examples things one might classify as being representative of being or of our having high cumulative community and Institutional ACE scores – which I prefer to think and speak of as being “holes in our heads” so to speak, get it?
We all must try to be more self-aware and less-reactive (as is our CPTSD-nature) and more thoughtful but not in an idle kind of way, the opposite, to be thoughtful with intention – this is what being aware means and what self-awareness is. To try to be more self-aware is the point by trying to stop seeing things and people strictly in terms of GOOD and BAD, as best one can – this is a SYMPTOM of CPTSD, to think in terms of black and white. We all benefit when we all know our own natures, our own evolution as a species on a beautiful blue planet in a vast ocean of planets and stars. Do this. It is time.
To try to better see the validity of differing perspectives – For all these reasons it is important to keep in mind that it is often those farthest ahead and/or seeing things from the highest perspective point are able to expand up and/or forward by having larger holes than average – not fewer – like a cake rising full of air, or not – are there other ways to achieve the same, yes, but not as fast nor with as little time or resources or basis for knowledge to build-upon, when things are scarce, this is the option; Culture is biology.
To be low on the CPTSD spectrum in a high-CPTSD community is to be maladapted – you will suffer and eventually will… you guessed it, be one of the gang – We All One in health or in pathology, get it? 1 in 3 is truly not OK, OK? So goes one, so go we all.
What is Institutional and Community CPTSD as compared to Individual CPTSD, what do these really mean?
What does it mean to be “activated” or to be higher than one desires on the CPTSD-Spectrum?
How does CPTSD affect how a person thinks and see’s the world? How can it be prevented and how can one protect oneself from it, or is this even possible or desirable?
What is COMPLEX PTSD? – INSTITUTIONAL CPTSD? – COMMUNITY CPTSD?
Anyone know – Is a difference between PTSD and CPTSD that CPTSD is a spectrum disorder & PTSD isn’t?
What is it? – RAADFEST.COM – It is; Resolution Against Aging and Death – RAAD.
PROSE title: Two Half-Way Dichotomous & Hierarchical Political Parties
The Glass is half-FULL; Let’s get creative and cooperate to figure out how to fill it to the top and share it.
The Glass is half-EMPTY: Let’s hurry to grab it and drain it before someone else tries to get it and we have to fight over it.
Yikes! It’s half-way – Let’s Fill it;
The friendly, rewarding, unjudging Universe supplies infinite space, energy, resources and capacity for their beneficial use – and goods will soon compete for people and NOT people for goods – and all actions can lead to good with the only limitation on Human-Kind is time to see, feel, and think it all in.
Yikes! It’s half-way – Let’s Drain it;
The mean, punishing Universe supplies limited-finite space, energy or resources and all actions lead to harsh economic and environmental costs as people compete for goods with guns.
The link above will take you to the BEST WRITING on the TOPIC; ACE -Adverse Childhood Experiences – ACE is not a spectrum disorder, nor even a disorder, it’s a new exciting invaluable measurement tool to communicate risk; as shown in the diagram below the degree of RISK. ACE scores are invaluable for individuals but also will enable us to make visible how our achievements and failures in life affect our sociality and how our sociality and community and workplace affects our individual behaviors in the context of a disorder such as Complex PTSD and borderline-pattern thinking and behaviors so that we can improve our individual lives and institutional and community lives, all three. Read, learn, act locally to see global change. All the pieces are in place awaiting assembly – is this you’re calling? Go, do, now.
RAAD – RESOLUTION AGAINST AGING and DEATH
RAADfest * WOODSTOCK OF THE NEW CENTURY * promises a new humanity as we flip from nasty to nice socio-biologically – Happening August 4, 2016. RAADfest.com – This will be an event you will treasure for life. How many MORE people would have attended Woodstock if they had any inkling of the historical impact it had? Well, we’re going to kick off a movement that could transform the world, and you don’t want to regret missing it. There is a big picture message we feel is vital to deliver – that, immortality, rather than being a dehumanizing element as Hollywood vampire stories suggest, in fact brings out the best in our humanity. It doesn’t just end death, it ends the separation between people; by neutralizing the inherent fear of death, immortality empowers us to open our hearts to people like never before. The toxicity of contemporary life is a serious threat to our health, and perhaps the greatest toxicity is that which comes from people. This deathless passion, creates a whole new level of togetherness in which people are lifted by people, rather than brought down. The movement for radical life extension is about the creation of our own future.
Did Too Many Bad Teachers *really* KILL Public Education, or did the deep-south segregationist lobby which is synonymous with Big-Old-Boys-style Big-Company BIG-TOBACCO? Chicago-Style Institutional CPTSD, yes? What of our schools and children here in Broward, FL.? What does it mean to be “ACTIVATED” or “INACTIVATED?” What does it mean to “LEAN FORWARD” versus “AWAY-FROM?” What determines this difference?
What happens when you have an arrowhead, meteorite, and extinct giant porpoise jawbone section in your pocket? What happens if you show one of these – to a teacher and child? Can you think of any ways to tell how to separate the “Lean-Forward” from “Lean-Back” types of folk? Show a child sitting with other children at a table and teachers sitting with other teachers at a table cool fossils and artifacts from a local Florida creek, such as a locally found ARROWHEAD – watch; do they as one all move forward to see better? Does the closest reach out for it? Are all around happy and smiling – Or the opposite? Are any pulling away while making scrunchy-faces? This is the secret hiding in the middle of it all as to why TEACHING either does, or doesn’t work – its that simple. It’s biology. Biology is culture; culture is biology, people with high ACE scores in high ACE-scoring communities and in workplaces suffering Institutional Complex PTSD who are “activated” to be on high-alert all the time will pull back, it’s science.
What is a spectrum disorder? – Answer – it means we are all along the line or spectrum somewhere, everyone.
WHY KIDS CAN’T LEARN:
– ONE IN THREE is abused or neglected and this IS NOT OK, OK?
– Any Justice Applied against Kids is an Immoral Injustice against Humanity, OK?
– To train the dog, horse, or child to war is be the lowest form of life imaginable, OK?
– Error is an Opportunity to Learn, Not an Opportunity to Punish or Be Punished, OK?
A Do-Over of the $200 Billion Big-Tobacco Settlement is demanded due to Collusion to hide Confabulating Data & avoid Bankruptcy by Misleading the Public – Will it be $500 Billion this time?
Statistically, ALL persons living past the Maximum biological Lifespan ARE FORMER/LIGHT Smokers. No one can live to be the oldest oldest-old ANY OTHER WAY. How did we miss this? “We” didn’t – there was obfuscation. REOPEN THE $200 BILLION DOLLAR BIG-TOBACCO SETTLEMENT!
Did SEGREGATIONISTS in Big-Government and Big-Corporate-Tobacco HIDE data showing a countervailing LONGEVITY-EFFECT to secure a settlement & avoid bankruptc? This could be the FIRST proven ability to extend mankind’s maximum lifespan. This means reductions in all main NCD’s – Non Communicable Diseases – Cardiovascular/Heart Disease, Diabetes, Cancer, Depression, Asthma, and Arthritis.
Did we really create an entire charter industry to PROTECT kids from Public-School Teachers – Seriously? Here is evidence that Big-Corp., Big-Gov., Big-Science, Big-Educ., Big-Tobacco & Big-Attorney interests all had to hide this confabulating scientific information or else the settlement would NOT have happened – so they hid it.
HERE is the SMOKING GUN! Historical documents now made public show Segregationist-led and controlled big-government, big-company & big-science taking actions to hide info inexplicable otherwise that bore on LONGEVITY & SMOKING. Big-Tobacco corporate memo’s show these actions to clearly be intentional. We can Re-Crunch the original data from five largest-ever longitudinal human-study datasets to find the truth.

CPTSD – Complex PTSD – If your community SCORES high on the ACE’s scale; Demand a Class-Action CPTSD lawsuit patterned on Compton, CA’s Successful $1 Billion suite!
DEMAND A DO-OVER OF THE $200 BILLION DOLLAR TOBACCO & EDUCATION SETTLEMENT!
DID PUBLIC EDUCATION REALLY FAIL BECAUSE OF TEACHERS, PARENTS, AND KIDS – Seriously?
1 IN 3 IS NOT OK, OK?
IT IS TIME TO FILE AN INSTITUTIONAL CPTSD CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ON BEHALF OF TEACHERS, STUDENTS, NURSES, HEALTH CARE WORKERS, POLICE, FIRE AND FIRST RESPONDERS IN BROWARD, OK? ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
Big-Government, Big-Education, and Big-Corporate Segregationist-Interests;
Did PUBLIC EDUCATION in AMERICA FAIL BECAUSE OF TEACHERS? Did we really create an entire charter industry to PROTECT kids from teachers – Seriously?
WE ARE ONE – WE ALL ONE – First U.S. Coin ever – FUN FACT
The nation’s very first coinage was created by Ben Franklin the founding father himself and it had one singular bold motto on one side and a symbol for the passing of time on the other – it said just these few words encircled by a chain made of smaller circle-links of metal still – the central words: “WE ARE ONE.”
It is such a “Ben” design and phrase; you really have to see it, it is quite amazing iconography and design. We’re getting there, slowly Ben, slowly. Creativity knows no bounds; the universe is infinite, not finite, as is our creativity when through the world we go, rightly knowing our place in it and of it.
