A Killer Job Opportunity

Who know more than those who witness the addiction, withdrawal and in thousands of cases, the deaths of family members?

Grim Reaper

(MYRTLE BEACH, SC) - "I am only one. But still, I am one. I cannot do everything. But still, I can do something. And because I cannot do everything - I will not refuse to do something that I can do." Edward Everett Hale

To: Victims and their families who have lost loved ones to the lethal drug, OxyContin because of the mass criminal marketing and manufacturing of the drug

Here is an opportunity to utilize your "expertise" involving drug safety by alerting "relevant third parties" first hand of the dangers of this drug that continues to destroy the lives of loved ones through addiction and death. Who is a better expert than those who witness the addiction, withdrawal and in thousands of cases, the deaths of family members? Don't worry if you don't have the educational requirements to fill this position -- or for that matter, that you can't understand exactly what this position entails. It is written purposely to confuse and generalize. By emailing Traci Palmer at the address shown, you can advise Purdue Pharma's recruiting agency first hand how you have become a "Drug Safety Alliance Manager". It's called initiation by fire -- you live it every day. You may want to ask Ms. Palmer the meaning of this phrase -- "This position oversees activities involving the management of the interfaces between Drug Safety & Pharmacovigilance (DSP) and relevant Third Parties (TPs)." In particular, the meaning of the word "Pharmacovigilance" -- Purdue Pharma's definition that is. The definition of Pharmacovigilance in Wikipedia is as follows:

Pharmacovigilance (abbreviated PV or PhV) is the pharmacological science relating to the detection, assessment, understanding and prevention of adverse effects, particularly long term and short term side effects of medicines.[1] Generally speaking, pharmacovigilance is the science of collecting, monitoring, researching, assessing and evaluating information from healthcare providers and patients on the adverse effects of medications, biological products, herbalism and traditional medicines with a view to:

  • Identifying new information about hazards associated with medicines
  • Preventing harm to the patients

Preventing harm to the patients? Since OxyContin was unleashed in 1996, there has been more harm to the population of the U.S. and Canada than any other opioid in modern time. Purdue Pharma has reaped billions of dollars in profits by conning and deceiving the medical profession as well as the Federal Drug Administration (FDA). Don't feel for a moment that you are under-qualified to apply for this position at Purdue Pharma. You are the true experts in the life experience of OxyContin and could give insight in preventing harm to patients -- first hand experience. As far as continued profits for Purdue Pharma -- well you may be responsible for ending their gravy train run of profits in the billions.

The more people who can be put under the control of drugs will ensure the place of our Govt. and Elected one to speak up as long as their drugs keep coming. Such a sad state of affairs ....

Think about it..what is going on? Marijuana has been proven to be almost a miracle herb, no harm to anyone, but its illegal. While oxycotin is legal. Also, I drink non-pasteurized milk and am 54 years old and healthy as a horse with a slender build, but swat teams are shutting down raw milk dairies, which have no complaints, just praise, while allowing soda machines containing aspertame, in skools? Everyone knows sodas are a death wish. Vaccines are causing more problems than they claim to fix, the backscanners at the airport are useless for security, but give you a major dose of radiation...The radiation from Fukishima is hitting the NW, nothing is even mentioned. I have dozens of more examples, but I think my point is, those who control this country dont care about anything but money and total control over its citizens. They certainly dont care about our health. People should start paying more attention. Its getting worse everyday...Its called "eugenics" bill gates, oprah, romney, obama, the bankers, etc, all part of it. Reduce population thru slow kill tactics..Its obvious.
