Psychedelic medical trials to begin

A new clinical trial exploring the impact of psychedelic medicines on brain activity has come a step closer to fruition, after being partially funded and granted ethics approval.

The duo of Tony Burke and Skye Laris, reminded me of Johnny Cash singing something like:  ’We go married in a fever….I’m goin to Jackson, I’m gonna mess around…’  and let me say it is time the forth estate took the lead from social media and forced politicians to travel cattle class to address their greed and arrogance.

For those of them who don’t know what the public is on about, those still talking of their self sacrifice and what they could earn in the private sector (forgetting they are vein ham actors wanting a stage and really were just second rate lawyers and unionists anyway), take a look at the public anger over cardinals who originally signed on to serve the humble and poor in the name of Jesus, and now seek and live the good life. Then there are greedy union leaders..

‘We got married in a fever…’  Make politicians travel economy, and stop them renting off their partners in Canberra to do the double dip.
