Bio
I'm an electrical engineer and mathematician by training. My career has spanned diverse areas of expertise from being part of a team which designed the world's most powerful computers to corporate consulting around business transformation and information-based solutions to being a corporate sales and marketing executive in the information technology and business consulting space. I’ve led teams responsible for innovative and transformative solutions and been part of teams that helped set strategy for many of America's greatest companies. Two of my interests are econometrics, democratic finance and quantitative - qualitative analysis. Over the years I have developed risk-based models and trading systems meant to identify significant investment opportunities and periods of extreme risk. My blog is an outlet for another of my passions, writing. I generally consider myself a contrarian. Therefore, many of my rantings are meant to encourage people to question what they believe to be true. Terms of Use & Disclaimer: First off, I don't take anything on here too seriously and you shouldn't either. These are simply sardonic rantings of Bill, my alter ego, often meant to agitate for peaceful & nonviolent reform. This web site reflects the views of its authors.

Drug Companies Fake Thousands Of Documents

Rate: 1 Flag

I have an outline of an old post that I never put up surrounding the efficacy of the prescription drug bubble and this article reminded me that maybe I should finish it. Anyway, it is surrounding the voodoo science used in pharma clinical trials and how corrupted and tainted it is. That 5% of the population consumes 55% of the world’s prescription drugs should tell you something. And, it likely isn’t good. It either tells us how incredibly sick we are as a nation or how a fraudulent, for-profit pharma industry has addicted a nation to prescription drugs that are actually making us sicker. The human ecosystem has an ability to heal itself given the right environment. So, I believe the preponderance of evidence lies with the latter statement given all drugs are in fact viewed as poisons by the human body. And, the scientific outcomes we see in support of this statement are the massively unreported and very serious side effects. In fact, the recent shootings by Adam Lanza could have easily been triggered by the well-known suicidal and psychotic effects of many prescription drugs. But, that possibility doesn’t serve the agenda of the corporate state which includes pharma.

Sometimes drugs are necessary and their poisonous effects are the only choice we may have to keep us alive. But, I seriously doubt that is often really the case for most long-term use of prescription drugs.

Profit and corporate control as motives for health care subverts discovery and truth so necessary for a functioning health care system. The invisible hand of self-interest that is Adam Smith’s capitalism is responsible for turning the Hippocratic Oath into a tyrannical and predatory hypocritical oath.

How could you possibly criticize Adam Smith TL? Why he along with Andrew Mellon and the immortal William Graham Sumner taught us that greed is good. Who could ever forget Sumner’s immortal quote "Before the tribunal of nature a man has no more right to life than a rattlesnake; he has no more right to liberty than any wild beast; his right to pursuit of happiness is nothing but a license to maintain the struggle for existence..." Following that quote to its logical conclusion that would give me the right to murder him and his whole family while I confiscated everything he ever stole. And as far as prescription drugs are concerned I think they should be made available to anyone who wants them. Why a couple of Quaaludes and a nice fat line of coke might actually make raping and murdering one of Melons ugly inbreed descendants actually enjoyable.
