Can Whizdumb backup his claims of hundreds of strokes caused by spinal manipulation each year". The literature just doesn't support his position.

Perhaps someone can email Senator Fasano who sponsors hearings at the urging of the anti-chiropractic ladies who have been paying for the billboards in NY, CT and Mass designed to scare people away from chiropractic doctors with false claims. Perhaps he can provide some proof of the anti-chiropractic ladies' claims that they have 'hundreds of victims as members and that they know personally who has been injured with a stroke from spinal manipulation. I personally have never seen proof of this. If it exists, I think many of us would like to see it.

Well, you are chiropractors after all.
Keep posting. You just can't make this stuff up. People are now seeing true "chiropractic".
Just another reason why the chiropractic charade has to be shut down.
Hey all, take a gander at this post: http://www.canlyme.com/quackwatch.html
What do you think? Do you think that Wise "The Diaper" Dom and the shrink who flunked his boards have something in common? How would you feel if your doctor flunked his board certification? I don't know about you, but I'd feel much better knowing my doctor is an idiot with no credibility. Now go empty your Psychiatrist (who flunked with flying colors) diaper.

Yeah, and what do YOU do for a living? You are most likely a loser like Wisediaper. I'll bet you know plenty about "hand over fist."

It's very simple. All you have to do Mr. Wiseman is confirm or deny you are Dr. Barrett. If you reply to this without directly answering this question, I'll have my answer. If you don't reply I'll still have my answer--noting that you frequently respond.

I would think that Dr. Barrett would have better things to do than lurk here. He has been handed some costly losses in the legal arena lately that likely has his mind pre-occupied.

You mentioned that retired psychiatrist Stephen Barrett flunked his psychiatric boards. While that is certainly true, my concern would be if a psychiatrist like Stephen Barrett testified as a paid 'expert witness' at hearings, trials, etc. and then used his 'expertise' to decide someone's mental state/condition and this was used to determine the fate of that person, such as whether he would spend years in a mental hospital, what treatment he might need to receive, etc. Then you find out years later that the so-called 'expert' flunked the boards in his own specialty.

Now, in my view, this would affect his 'expertness' and I would be pretty ticked-off if he was the guy who put me away for observation/treatment in a state mental hospital or something and later it was in my medical file and had trouble getting a job, insurance, etc.

Well apparently, if this happened, and one would think that is did happen when he likely testified in many, many people's cases in Pennsylvania years ago. I would be pretty upset right now if I was one of these victims or one of the surviving family that this happened to, whose fate was being influenced by an 'expert' witness who was less of an expert than he led everyone to believe.

If it was me, and this is just my opinion, I would be looking up old records to see if my life or a deceased loved one was directly affected by this and would be contacting the State of Pennsylvania right now. But that is just my opinion.
Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Barrett is having problems, as one can see from his dumb website, he has not really posted any new things on chiropractic lately. The lawsuits against him and the stupid angry acne doctor have put an end to all of that. Now he has to spend his time around here, he reminds me of that movie that someone talked about earlier on this forum What About Bob, yes that would fit it correctly. Bob is the Chiropractor and Barrett is that angry shrink. He has BotDUMMY taking baby steps now.

If chirotalk is the best that the "skeptics" can do, then it's no wonder they are producing such "fine" and eloquent spokespeople as yourself.

Although I call imposter on that last post ... there wasn't a single reference to diapers or exposing.

Again, thank you for reading "chirotalk".

Thousands of posts from current and former chiropractors, Medical Doctors, PTs, RNs and others. All experts on the chiropractic enterprise. A place that is now the number one skeptical chiropractic website.

You'll never trust another chiropractor again. For example, like this "nucca" chiropractor who posted above. This chiropractor claims he can treat every illness and disease by tweaking, ha ha , only your top vertebrae. Ain't that right mr. quacker? Go ahead, try to deny it. Go ahead. QUACK!

I know, its incredibly stupid. Truly a cult. But will you ever find another cult member criticize him? Absolutely not. Member cultists would never do that.

Chirotalk, where the chiropractic BS ends. LOve to have this quack "nucca" come and post on "chirotalk". Ha ha Maybe he could present his "evidence". Ha ha

Yes, thank you to all the chirotalk losers who make everyone else glad they're not part of the chirotalk cult. Losers (like the ones who read chirotalk)LOVE company. Are the posters on chirotalk losers? OMG!!! And The Diaper boy is leading the charge, you know, the expert on chiropractic who now just annointed thousands others experts as well. In other words, if you're a loser, and you speak against chiropractic, then you're an expert. hahahahahahahahahaha So I ask again: Are the posters on chirotalk losers??? OMG!!!!!! By the way, I'm on course to break last year's record--of OVER a half a million. Suck on that Mr. Diaper. ahahahahahahaahah ahahahahahahaah oh, I can't stand it ahahahahaha. And put those binoculars away and quit peering out your window at that yellow bus. Got that creep???

Again, thank you all for reading the world's finest skeptical chirooractic web site.

Some of you will enjoy the posts from a well respected obstetrician who exposed the fraudulent claims that ex-chiropractic lecturer "webster" at life chiro school made about his ability to treat breach babies.

You'll never trust a chiroquacker again.

Again, in my view, I believe the fact that retired psychiatrist Stephen Barrettt failed the board in his own specialty would affect his 'expertness' and I would be pretty ticked-off if he was the guy who put me away for observation/treatment in a state mental hospital or something and later it was in my medical file and had trouble getting a job, insurance, etc.

Well apparently, if this happened, and one would think that is did happen when he likely testified in many, many people's cases in Pennsylvania years ago.

I was having a bad day--not in business, because someone at a shopping center parking lot nicked my BMW--oh, well. Anyway, to make myself feel better I visited chirotalk to see how all the losers were doing. And you know what? They're doing just fine! Lots of them. I think that's great. I like when losers leave the profession--makes it easier on me. Now, I think I'll kick back, have a small glass of JD and watch the Yankees. Hey, it's almost World Series time. Yeah, baby!

The only reason that angry little wannabe shrink is not posting anymore anti DC propaganda on his nutjober watch site, is that he has be sued and has been issued a warning by a judge, now he and the angry little acne doctor are running scared

Just look at his website, he must be hanging out at losertalk, oh yeah, that nut job wacko looking TEO is back, looks like he must of passed baby steps barretts treatment of botpigdumbnut, must be working on TEO now, but TEO looks the same as he always has, a drugged out pharma nut, taking the drugs he is suspose to be giving all the drug addicts.

HaHaHa

Poor little botpigdumbnuts and wisdiapernumbnuts boy they sound like the nut brother ding and dong, maybe they are the same person? Or better yet maybe barrett the shrink is posing as them

Chiropractic won and HE LOST

Hey life boy, why don't you post on "chirotalk" and try to "educate " TEO, doctor of pharmacology and former chiropractor who exposed the chiropractic scam with Alan Alda.

Tell him, and the MDs and PTs and RNs there that you "really" know that chiropractic can treat bedwetting.

Ha Ha And then you can follow up with a little medicine bashing. You chiroquackers are sooo good at it. Then maybe, you can tell the obstetrician there that you are better at turning breech babies than he is. Ha Ha

Anyway, glad you chiropractors are following chirotalk. There is hope for you.

TEO is nothing more that a crazy nut job, who would take any prescription drug for that freak

Now for Allen, I commend him on finally admiting that Chiropractic cured his asthma, by removing the subluxation

Allen is the newest DC mascot

Now I do not think for one moment that any MD would post on such at angry little man nut job site. All I see is people pretending to be a MD to make things look better, nice try though

I am so glad that the dumb website finally admited that the were cured from asthma by removing subluxations

Now for wisdom, Say it, Sing it, You know you CANNOT resist it, ok I will let you YESMAN, good little unwiseboy

I always knew Pee Wee Bobnick was up to something, everyone has an agenda, so it looks like his agenda was the $$$$$$$$$$
That is, the angry little shrink, indoctrinating him into the conspiracy cult, I guess he is like his littel dog, the angry little shrink even throws him a bone of cash once and a while, as the saying goes "Whos your Master", but wait a moment here, what is the angry little shrink going to do, when he hears him saying chiropractic cured his asthma?
