MRE stands for Meal, Ready-to-Eat and is currently the main individual operational ration for the U.S. military. MREs are meant to be completely self-contained meals that provide all the nutrition a solider-on-the-go needs to sustain himself. Typical contents include entree, side dish, crackers, peanut butter/cheese spread, desert, instant coffee/tea, matches, toilet paper, spoon, and a heater to heat the main entree. While everything in an MRE can be eaten cold, it usually tastes better warm. Great item for campers, hunters or emergency rations for when the zombies attack!

9.Signed Copy of Medical Warrior by Miguel A. Faria, Jr., M.D.

One of more signed copies of these brilliant writings signed and donated by the author himself. The following is a exerpt from a review of this book.

Warning! If you have high blood pressure, consult your physician before reading Medical Warrior. Dr. Miguel Faria writes with such fervor and conviction about the looming dangers of a health-care system dominated by big government, big business, and big labor that people with medical problems may wish to read something far less provocative.

In this collection of his published essays, Faria offers us a depressing look at the continuing statist re-invention of our health-care system. Readers are introduced to an impending health-care dictatorship the author describes as “corporate socialism,” dominated by federal regulations and financed by billions of taxpayer dollars, but indifferent to the desires and welfare of individual patients. It is a frightful prospect.

Faria, a neurosurgeon who left Cuba as a child, sees events with the clarity that so often comes from having lived under tyranny. He writes that the proposals for health-care “reform” are “as much a threat to the preservation of the sanctity of the doctor-patient relationship, Hippocratic medicine, and patient and physician autonomy, as socialized medicine in the form of a single-payer system. . . . In fact, the failures and shortcomings of the managed care/managed competition scheme may lead in the end directly to the ··single-payer system, when the ‘free-market’ is erroneously blamed for the failure and collapse of corporatism in American medicine.”

Dr. Faria also astutely relates our problems to a failed legal system which is based on subjective law. This major tragedy has developed from a 19th Century legal doctrine known as positivism, which is based not on the natural rights of man, but instead on man-made or government-granted rights. It follows the philosophy of “might makes right”5 and is the direct cause of many of the problems we now face. Among these are the Federal Reserve System (a government-approved cartel with a monopoly over the money supply) and a series of subjective laws, including the Civil Rights Act, the Medicare Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Family Leave Act, and the laws imposing the welfare state. State intrusion into medicine has resulted from the use of administrative law to enforce CLIA and OSHA, and from the imposition of Diagnosis-Related Groups, the Resource-Based Relative Value Scale, Volume Performance Standards, and the peer-review process. All this has resulted in what the author describes as a “medical gulag.”

An especially ominous failure of our political system has been our government’s attempts, aided and abetted by the public health entities and organized medicine, to use results-oriented research based on junk science to disarm its citizens, which Dr. Faria shows has been perpetrated in spite of the following facts:

1. 20,000 gun laws already on the books that are seldom used to disarm criminals.

2. The state has no legal responsibility to protect its citizens from crime. The duty of the police is to apprehend criminals and bring them to justice after a crime has been committed.

3. 73% of women will be victimized and more than a third of them will be raped, robbed, or assaulted at some point in their lives. Yet, female victims using handguns in self-defense are successful 66% of the time, while those fleeing the scene only 35% of the time or using physical force only 23% of the time.

4. The defensive uses of all firearms by citizens (up to two and one half million uses per year) dwarf the offensive gun uses by criminals. So that “firearms are used more frequently by law-abiding citizens to repel crime than by criminals to perpetrate crime.”

5. The medical costs saved by guns used by law-abiding citizens are 15 times greater than the costs incurred by the criminal uses of firearms.

In spite of these facts, the war against gun ownership is progressing at an alarming pace, assisted by the junk science of gun control research conducted by public health and published in the mainstream medical journals.
