Teen Screen, Your Tax Dollars and Pharma

     I like drugs.  I like happy people (except when they have reason to be unhappy, then it is insanity).

     Bu$hCo, Pharma, with Little Frist in tow, have developed a plan to screen every teen in the country for mental disorders, using a computer program, in order to ensure profits.

     Here's Online Journal with more on TeenScreen and TMAP.  Basically, Pharma sees a lot of profits in automatically diagnosing state prisoners with mental illness and getting taxpayers to shell out for the drugs (regardless of any need stated by the prisoner, his representatives, or even the prison system) and now is getting a chance to computer-diagnose the entire public school population. 

     Bah and Fie.
