Just a thought! Would it help?

Under Our Skin is great!

I just remember when Michael Moore did Sicko, there was lots of publicity, interviews, etc.

jennie..I think it would be a great idea, if it were at all possible. I just saw him on a show the other night. It sure couldn't help but draw more attention to Lyme.

Yes, but I think he has to see this as a "universal" issue for him to be interested.

I actually emailed him. He says he tries to answer as many of his emails personally, as he can.

IMO, I think Oprah and Dr. OZ were "threatned" not to do these shows on Lyme. There's a better word to use, just am not thinking today.

I think this Lyme issue is "watched" even more than we realize.

The way to get to him is through all the drama. No issue ever existed with as much.

Under our skin was a documentary, what Michael can do is show the irony with sarcasm. How a few doctors and medical establishment along with coluding insurance companies can beat down so many normal citizens who just want to be well. Can even lobby government to do so.

If you had to compare all the films Michael has done, this one has more material then any other.

The way to get to Michael or influence a film, is from hollywood folk who have the disease. Let them band together as a group and say to Michael -- YOU'VE GOT TO DO THIS ONE ON LYME.

If he does do it on lyme, it opens the door for Dr. Oz, Oprah, Letterman, Lenno, and Saturday night lyme. [lol]

I think that is a great avenue to pursue, folks. Hello controversy! He might just be interested in this one. Big enough story for him to cover, I don't know. But worth a shot for sure.

I would certainly say it would be big enough for him. I think he could have a field day with it.

Most ppl still don't have a clue, but I have had some ppl in recent months, come to me and ask questions. I tell them all I can! And they can spread the word. Slowly more and more ppl are becoming aware of Lyme.

I did the same. Sent him a link to watch the Under Our Skin trailer. Among many things, I said the film is great but it's not enough!

Please lets get more people--lets swamp his production assistant or whatever filter he has set up. Let's overflow it so we get through!

Good going guys, it would make my day to hear back from him. I think the more controversial, the better he likes it.

Something is weird.....I just thought I posted a whole post about Michael Moore, Tim Hall, Under the Eightball and Lori Hall Steele who was Tim's sister. I don't see the post...so I am posting again. Lori supposedly died from Lyme disease. Lori worked for Michael Moore.

She edited his book...Dude Where's my Country and she did other things for him also. I know he knows about the movie Under the Eightball as he was supposed to come to the first showing. Tim Hall worked on revamping the Traverse City State Theater where Moore shows some of his movies.

Moore and Oprah know about Lyme disease. They evidently are not allowed to touch it

Those who are backing Michael Moore and Oprah are the ones who most likely will not allow the real nitty gritty truth about Lyme disease to be publicized widely.

Oprah's show is on a network. I believe all the networks are owned or backed by the financiers of the world. They make it appear as if Oprah and Moore are their own agents but it is my feeling and the feeling of a growing number of people that they are merely puppets for a larger agenda.

From what I've read Michael Moore has many connections that are not publicized in the mainstream. You may want to look up Michael Moore and Ari Emanuel. I was trying to find an article I had read a while back concerning his financial connections but I can't find it.

However,all one really has to do is look very closely at what Michael Moore is saying. Take Sicko for example....Moore says that the corporations are big bad entities(which most are) so that we need the government to take control and put the corporations in their place.

Doesn't M Moore realize that the corporations are now so intertwined with our government that Moore is actually asking for MORE control over our health by the corporations!Our government has become the corporations. This is what needs to be exposed before the people can begin to get back their health freedom and before any progress can happen in Lyme disease.

On my blog, I have begun to post information that will hopefully aide us in determining how we are being deceived. I want to learn more about the techniques used on us so that when we become aware of these tactics, they can no longer be used on us.

Google "controlled opposition" and learn its many different forms. Knowledge is power

Yeah I'll buy the control thing. I think for someone like Oprah on a network it's the advertisers who call the shots--"don't hurt our business or we'll yank our ads." And there're an awful lot of pharmaceutical companies advertising on breaks--many things for the suppression of the symptoms of lyme but obviously no 'cure' for lyme. You never see antibiotic ads on--or rife ads--hahah hahah hahah!

Didn't Oprah get in big trouble with the meat/beef industry way back when? Maybe the producers keep watchful eye on a repeat offense.

What a world we live in--money above all else! We'll see where that gets us--gee wiz, so far so good! [Roll Eyes]

I think Oprah would be more controlled than M Moore. i think he would be good at bringing out the deception, that's what he does.

If most of society remains blind to the extreme interests of the corporate world. No matter how hard we work on activism, it will never succeed. Its been my stance for some time to take control back and work as a single entity (chronic illness) and through natural substances and observation create remission in the disease process. Am I advocating getting off the grid (matrix), you bet.

Bob...I think you have the right idea. I highly recommend joining the Price Pottenger Nutrition Foundation www.ppnf.org It's common sense...back to nature...observing the natural laws that mankind has been breaking....and suffering the consequences from that.

Another thought concerning getting off the grid. Janice Beers...not sure where or how she is now...I believe was a lawyer& lyme patient but am not sure. Years ago I recieved a packet of info in the mail from someone whom she had sent it to. She was exposing the lyme conspiracy...but knew that it had to be an underground operation.

The way the internet is set up...every action, thought and article is tracked and monitored. Any opposition that there is...evaluates our reactions and thoughts...disease progress...etc. Then according to what we say online...they can structure their public relations propaganda. I'm sure at least one of those people is monitoring this site.

Janice Beers advocated passing out info one to one...either through the mail or on the street corner...in your town library...town picnics...etc. The packet I received was wrapped inside aluminum foil and placed in an envelope. She felt she was being targeted and was evidently on the run. I don't know if this was true but the rumor went around that she was off balance.

I have heard she is still alive and living somewhere but for whatever reason we do not hear from her anymore. Most people do realize there is a conspiracy or more than one conspiracy surrounding the lyme pandemic. Often we are told to stop talking about this aspect in its larger sense. Yes...we are allowed to focus on the IDSA BUT...the web is much larger than that and we need to untangle it. Just my thoughts.

All the words we use in combination is tracked. If you use consxxxpiracy as a word and a few others it puts you on the r@d@r. There are word parsing prx%grams with stat%istxxcal proxxx%bability. I know they exist I've similar programs.

Based on the probability of discussion they are further disseminated. Some of the folks even on this site might be a tr%ll.

For instance "a nd" will still be and. A%nd will also become and. the program will strip all but the letters and try to form words. It will also take tr%ll to find the most likely word. It will do word association and if the statistical probability is high enough, it will red flag it.

Gotta agree with you, daystar.
Folks, check out undertheeightball.com and google garth nicholson. If you're really feeling bold, youtube 'Zeitgeist.'

Sometimes I wonder whether or not it might be prudent to try to get Alex Jones to address this. He's got a huge audience, and I think we have a much better chance with him than with Michael Moore.

I believe we need less control by gov't, drug and insurance co's. Get the CDC & NIH out of the way so that we can find treatments that really work - and of course, cures.

Should insurance companies have the right to descriminate regarding whether we see a Naturopathic doctor or a medical doctor? There is so much control out there it isn't funny.

I believe there may have been really good treatments and possibly even cures for many things that have come along, but because of those who have control, these things have been hushed up.

Dx with Lyme & homozygous for MTHFR. Antibiotics & nutritional IV's didn't help.

I think you are right Nana B. For people who want to figure things out for themselves....knowledge and discernment...etc...research "Astroturfing"
Instead of people pointing fingers at one another (which can be a disinfo, chaos tactic)...we need to learn the methods of deception for ourselves so our eyes can be opened.Follow the money...try to see who is connected to who and why. That's all..
