Big Pharma to track sinus medicine purchases


Even fascism's own avowed followers have said that fascism is the fusion of corporate and government power.

So how is this not fascist?

Corporate America is always eager to appease government tyranny - and vice versa. This has become clear once again, as the pharmaceutical industry is now offering a database (made by a Kentucky firm) to help the states track anyone who buys cold or allergy medicine.

Big Pharma doesn't even have the courage to stand up for over-the-counter drugs that are perfectly legal? Of course not. It's in bed with the drug warriors.

Under the new database, you'd have to swipe your driver's license through a reader just to buy Sudafed. This would immediately launch a nationwide search to see if you've purchased any recently. Kind of puts the brakes on the Big Lie about the barcodes on the driver's licenses not being used for anything other than what's printed on the license, huh?

There's a reason I stuck an "I VOTED" sticker on the barcode on my license, folks.

This is just one of many reasons why it's time for a law to ban barcodes on licenses and state-issued ID's.

Less than 15 years ago, barcoded licenses were viewed as a serious privacy violation. Now they blaze like wildfire, and it's time we restore our freedom.

  1. That's a good idea -- sticking an "I voted" sticker on your drivers license barcode. I like that.
