When the US Government beats you, and drags you out of your home for posting "OBUMMER IS TEH DUMB" on a website, come call me and I'll stand right beside you. http://thoughtcata log.com/2013/free- speech-you-dont-ac tually-know-what-y ou-are-talking-abo ut/  (Oct 10, 2013 | post #31)

obama and health care

Savannah cannot close it's ER without closing the hospital. It's not a specialty hospital, and is open to the public and participates in Medicare and Medicaid. Under EMTALA it HAS to provide emergency medical care. And Vanderbilt laid off 300 people for purely political reasons. If you actually KNEW what was going on there, they basically fired as many people as they could who had performance or disciplinary issues, and used the resulting publicity to claim it was because of Obamacare.  (Oct 10, 2013 | post #30)

Man Allegedly Claims to be Licensed to Clean Meth Lab Deb...

They're arresting the guy because he impersonated a HAZMAT Cleanup Technician, falsely portrayed himself to the people who hired him, and endangered the people who moved into those houses after the labs were "cleaned up". And they do arrest the people operating the meth labs. I'm really not sure what kind of point you're trying to make here.  (Oct 7, 2013 | post #2)

obama and health care

You're on a privately owned website. You don't have rights and civil liberties here. You have what the moderators allow you to post within their set up terms of service. Also, pointing out what a flaming idiot you are for reposting the latest chain email on "obamacare " (The plan which was originally thought up by Republicans in 2006, hilariously) that could be easily be debunked by spending five seconds on google is not a violation of your civil rights, cupcake. Nowhere in the constitution does it prohibit private entities from ridiculing you or punishing you for stating unpopular or blatantly false opinions.  (Oct 5, 2013 | post #27)

Personally, I think you're a shill for Big Pharma, sent to embarrass and make the alternative medicine industry look like nutballs and discredit their information. Why do you take money from Pfizer?  (Oct 5, 2013 | post #8720)

You're right. As I recall, the "doctor" (who wasn't even a medical doctor) who championed the icepick lobotomy, once Science discovered his quackery and with the advent of effective, first generation psychotropic medications in the early 1950s, faded into obscurity and died a penniless man.  (May 19, 2011 | post #1452)

Again. More deconstructions of the Pace "review" by actual scientists. http://scienceblog s.com/insolence/20 11/05/another_swin g_for_the_fences_a nd_a_miss.php http://leftbrainri ghtbrain.co.uk/201 1/05/pace-study-co nfirms-autism-prev alence/ http://edition.cnn .com/2011/HEALTH/0 5/09/autism.study/ index.html Also, Willard. The "review" itsself is highly questionable and barely even neutral, with considerable conflicts of interest given some of the participant's histories.  (May 18, 2011 | post #1446)

Willard, Truth. You keep using that word, but I think it's pretty clear you have no idea what it means. Truth is not posting debunked lies, bad studies, and grasping at straws in a vain attempt to prove your point by begging a question. And I just laughed at your portrail of me as a "Militant Activist". I feel like I should dig a batcave and don a cape and a Heath Ledger-esque grin to go complete with your villification of me. Thanks for that little ad hominem: Willard's statement is shown to be not factual, so he just insults the debunkersThe "Pace Law Statement", as you like to put it, was a statement that was made from incorrect evidence, and retrospective review which did not account for anything other than whether someone had a vaccination, and was autistic. Even by their own admission,they were only able to find Autism in 39 of the 2,500 Vaccine Court awards, which actually puts the level of Autism at a statistical norm with the rest of the population. Again. Legal opinions are not Science. There is a legal opinion that a spoiled twinkie can lead a man to be a spree killer - that doesn't make it scientific fact that Hostess is producing weapons of mass destruction. In addition to this, the legal challenge for scientific evidence in Vaccine Court is much lower than an actual non-magisterial court of LawWhich is funny, because it's saying nothing to what you're saying. If anything, the Pace Law study actually goes to prove that while there is a correlation between autistics and vaccinated persons, that the correllation does not change any more so between those compensated for actual vaccine injuries, and the general population. I know correllation and causation are hard concepts for you to separate given the history of your posts, Willard, but do try to do so. What's funny enough is Age of Autism/Generation Rescue's Infamous Phone StudyAnd I bet you think forensic evidence works like on CSI, too. You cannot legislate or judicate scientific fact. Again, you're grasping at strawsI believe that document actually proves my points. Not that you've demonstrated a strong grasp of reading comprehension. But here are several other deconstructions of the Pace review, by actual scientists: http://scienceblog s.com/insolence/20 11/05/another_swin g_for_the_fences_a nd_a_miss.php  (May 18, 2011 | post #1445)

http://scienceblog s.com/insolence/20 11/05/another_swin g_for_the_fences_a nd_a_miss.php The Pace Law statement was a legal arguement, not a matter of scientific fact. In fact, as a scientific and medical arguement, it has more holes in it than a block of swiss cheese. For example: 83/2500 results in an estimated prevalence rate of approximately 3.3%. On the surface, this seems to support the claim that the prevalence of autism is three-fold higher in VICP-compensated children than it is in the general population. Of course, there's at least one problem, and that's that the authors admit that, of these 83 children, they could only find documentation of autistic symptoms for only 39. This results in an estimated prevalence of autism of around 1.6%. This is rapidly falling into the range of what we would expect in the general population. Given that the VICP population is a skewed sample, many of whom have developmental disabilities, I'd be shocked if the prevalence of autism in this group wasn't at least slightly higher than it is in the general population. Of course, this "study" is not good evidence that it is. Taking into account the skewed population and the noise inherent in looking at a small population over 20 years, the prevalence of autism in VICP-compensated children does not appear to be detectably different than it is in the general population. That's even accounting for very loose criteria used by the authors to define who might be autistic. As Prometheus put it: If the prevalance is higher among people compensated by the VICP, there is a basis for further investigation. It still wouldn't "prove" that vaccines cause autism - it would simply be an indication for further study. If, on the other hand, the prevalence of autism among people compensated by the VICP is the same as the general population (or less - see below), the argument that "vaccines cause autism" receives yet another (totally redundant) nail in its coffin. The problem is that the autism prevalence numbers for the general population - even the educational numbers - use much tighter criteria than used by the authors of this study. According to a Generation Rescue telephone survey (in other words, a "study" by the anti-vaccine movement iteself), the prevalence of autism is even higher than what Holland et al found in the VICP-compensated group of children.  (May 18, 2011 | post #1421)
