Autism: America’s newest industry

Autism: America’s newest industry

 

Autism presents as a group neurological disorders associated with a diffuse series of symptoms and signs. Autistic behavior is characterized by the inability to interact with others on an equal social basis, poor communications skills and the performance of repetitious actions. This is a very serious diagnosis and carries many consequences when it is applied. Historically the prevalence of this disorder in America reflected that of its worldwide presentation of 2 per 1,000 people. Centers for Disease Control ( CDC ) presently claims 1 child in 88 has this disorder. Less than a year ago autism was noted in 1 in 110 children. Did our diagnostic ability take a quantum leap or is there a more sinister reason for these skewed numbers? Many who have been assigned this diagnosis have quasi symptoms which appear to be variants of normal behavior. Children who are introverted or shy find themselves being issued this diagnosis by the tens of thousands. Intellectually endowed children, unchallenged by their educational or social circumstance, now come under the aegis of this disease. A list of activities and or in-activities by those under five years of age which have alternate explanations

are now categorized under the heading of one of the three major autistic emblems. The overreach of the diagnostic machine pushing for this disorder to be at the forefront of childhood disabilities may have an economic basis. An entire industry has arisen to meet the demands of a disease that has been over diagnosed to support it. Psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, paraprofessionals, teachers and many more derive their livelihoods from this abused diagnosis. Any challenge to the diagnostic approaches utilized to define this disorder, have been met with outrage by those who bathe in the money it brings to them. Worse, the statistical anomalies regurgitated weekly by the CDC continue to be refined to bring more children under the umbrella of this horrific disease state. Categorized as autistic, a person is labeled under this title for life. Social, economic and personal consequences when a person is marked as autistic could be profound. The effort to misdiagnosis and or broaden the definition of this disease continues at an accelerated rate. Soon every other child will somehow and in some inconceivable manner be touched by a disorder which has been politicized to the extreme and diagnosed to the maximum. Moms and dads question those who push your children towards this diagnosis, they have a very good chance of being wrong. Mark Davis MD, President of Healthnets Review Services. platomd@gmail.com

Trayvon Martin’s long walk to justice

Trayvon Martin’s long walk to justice

 

Race hustlers by the dozens have chimed in concerning the horrific death of a young Afro-American male on February 26, 2012 in Sanford Florida. Energized by this chorus of the lost media icons have resonated with their own spin on this tragedy, condemning the purported trigger man before all the facts have surfaced. Echoes of the Duke Lacrosse incident reverberate through many minds as the call for George Zimmerman’s incarceration grows louder. Mr. Zimmerman was performing neighborhood watch duties on the fateful night of Trayvon Martin’s death. Rain fell during the period Mr. Zimmerman followed Mr. Martin through the streets of the community now at the center of this national tragedy. Ambiguities arise to the exact elements of the confrontation between these two individuals. Details have a way of being spun. In this case, they have given many vertigo. Do the names Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and Louis Farrakhan gyrate in your memory circuits? They have come back from the dead having been disgraced by their actions during the Duke Lacrosse debacle. The woman they defended in that case, before all the facts were in, went on to cruelly murder an individual whose only crime was he met her. Trayvon, from all the descriptions we have of him, stood much higher in the steps of life than these self-severing remnants of a past that should be buried. Recently an eye witness to the events of this tragedy has come forward with a story that may corroborate Zimmerman’s account of that night’s interlude. An altercation may have precipitated the discharge of a firearm causing the death of this unarmed teen. Once the witness has a chance to be vetted more thoroughly this case may take another spin. It was inevitable that Geraldo Rivera would attempt to capture some of the publicity surrounding this tragic event. Self-serving maneuvers are always at the core of Geraldo’s news pieces. This time he blundered by stating the hoodie Trayvon Martin wore may have contributed to the intensity that resulted in the tragedy in which we are aware. Wherever borderline media figures go at retirement, Geraldo should move there expeditiously. Our race hustling industry has called for street demonstrations and violent actions if the “facts” do not lead to the justice they want. Similar to the barbaric expletives annunciated during the Duke Lacrosse incident, Sharpton and the gang are back in the streets stirring up whatever trouble they can. Trayvon Martin deserves justice if the facts support the conclusion that he was a victim of Zimmerman’s overzealous actions that horrific night. In event the facts move this case in an alternate direction justice should move with it. Mark Davis MD, author of Demons of Democracy. platomd@gmail.com

Reckless disregard: Obama’s roadmap to American obsolescence

Reckless disregard: Obama’s roadmap to American obsolescence

 

Historic in nature and still evolving Obama’s circuitous route to America’s downfall will come at a tremendous price for everyone who supports its infrastructure. In order to fully comprehend the totality of the havoc Obama has wrought on the American landscape, one only needs to review the besieged health care system. In a brief two year period since its inception and passage, Obama’s monstrous health legislation has taken control of the system away from medical providers and turned it over to an overreaching bureaucracy. Judges and lawyers will decide who lives and who dies. America’s transition from a super power to third world status has been expedited by a mentality that is so deficient mere words cannot describe it. Cleverly attempting to cover up his Muslim leanings, our Chief Executive has given the government an atheistic flare denouncing religious symbolism and speech wherever his Justice Department can ferret out its existence. Freedom of speech has taken a major turn with Obama’s unrelenting attempts to quell it whenever it speaks the truth of his actions. No one is surprised by the harsh tones his liberal regime has for FOX media. They are among the few that have the cojones to take on the detriments Obama has thrust on the American population. FOX, as you may be aware, is under review by the Justice Department for very nebulous reasons. Looking more like Soviet style suppression everyday, edicts by the dozens have emanated from the White House which place controls on nearly all American institutions and industries. One ominous document released on a recent Friday, in an attempt to slip it by the media, enumerates a long list of powers the government can use against the population in case of a national crisis. Does Obama plan to call a national emergency and suspend the coming election? President Obama is now moving across America attempting to regain the momentum he had during his 2008 campaign. Many supporters are reexamining their stance on a man who displays boundless ineptitudes as he mismanages America into decline. Unfortunately the person that might replace him may not be much better.

Rick Santorum: running against himself

Rick Santorum: running from himself

 

Rick Santorum’s national ambitions diminish each time he verbalizes a thought. As a former Senator and candidate for President, media review of his political positions is scrutinized to the nth degree.  Recent exhortations by him have turned many heads the wrong way. Santorum’s Satan comments, whether taken out of context or not, introduce a certain level of negativity and nervousness in minds of potential supporters. His internet postulations denoting what he believes a person can view in cyberspace speak to a whole new set of government controls. Under a Santorum presidency the Chief Executive will determine which websites are permitted, others he will “crackdown” on. Though his references were to stop the proliferation of porn, next step potentially could inhibit viewing  sports on certain days, liberal talk shows ( perhaps not a bad idea), news shows and more. Rick is autocratic: it is his way or no way. Watching Santorum and his family pray after a debate may have made many uncomfortable with his openly religious displays. Morality for the Senator shifts as time moves forward. He has a trail of speeches and writings indicating he is still looking to solidify his personal beliefs as exemplified by his change from pro-choice to pro-life stance. Higher education is not for everyone only those he feels should take the plunge. Numerous uncertainties surround the personal and professional life of Rick Santorum which should give people pause when considerations swing towards his candidacy. His delegate count is presently less than half of Mitt Romney, yet he pursues his presidential goals as though a chance still exists for him to overcome the odds. Perhaps his accumulated delegate count at the time of the Republican Convention will earn him a second place position on the November ballot. If not, Santorum will return to his lobbying activities and the multi-million dollar cottage in which he now resides. This is one candidate who should stay in the private sector.  Mark Davis MD, author of Demons of Democracy. platomd@gmail.com
