Me and this Blog

Over the last few days I've received many good comments about what to write about and what not to write about and how to write. What I’m hearing is that you like when I do the more personal stories, and while some enjoy comments on recent news, too much cut and paste is not as valuable.

Anyway, I guess I can never do the news thing as well as PharmaGossip. I’ve stopped believing that the Insider running that blog even works full-time inside a pharma company, because he simply wouldn’t have the time do such a good job at blogging.

Also when I do talk about intrigues, technical things, drug company workings, you want me to do this in a more accessible way. So that anyone can understand.

I think that is all great help and very reasonable. Because it is hard to know sometimes what attracts someone here. That didn’t come out right. I mean, what part of this blog you read.

So today, I’m going to write a more personal story about some important news. Let’s see how that goes over. Topic is hot enough to get many opinions. Abortion.

And tomorrow, I'll do my third installment of my life and what finally brought me to this blog.

I read about the Duesberg book a couple of years ago and the premise is that the public has been misled by the government and pharmas because the scientific research doesn't prove what everyone has been led to believe.

And Doc, I wouldn't worry about age and all as far as work goes. Henri Salvador just turned 89 last month and he's experiencing a resurgence in his career as a musician and entertainer.

Chin up buddy. giggle

Michael Savage had a good point today about Tom Cruise and out he was publicly humiliated for saying that Prozac was for stupid people, ie that the BOD members of Viacom are also members of the BOD for Pharma companies. And then he went on to say how the hippy generation of the 60's predicted this would happen, but they all sold out and the conservative of today is the lone remaining stalwart defender of the dream.

Interesting, Anon. I was just commenting to the misses that it seems to me Tom Cruise got the bums rush. Think back about what he did on Oprah and the Today Show. What in the hell was so god awful that he should be oster-whatever-the-helled?

And I'm not a big fan of his. Just seems to me that being happy about a relationship or telling a morning "news" man that's he full of chit doesn't necessarily make you a nut.

But telling Brooke Shields how she should deal with her depression does, now that Katie Holmes has been put through a lot more "off the wall" rituals how do you think she feels about his stance on "post-partum depression?" Brooke Shields never tried to force her opinions on the "silent birth" Tom Cruise wanted.

Plus the blackmail tactics he used in dealing with trying to force Comedy Central into not showing the "Trapped in the Closet" episode of South Park by telling Paramount that he wasn't going to do the promotion tour for MI: III is what I'm betting pissed off the studio heads so much that they didn't want to work with him anymore. That's nuts to try and force their hand like that

Good point in first Paragraph. It was crase on his part. Lost in all that was the idea that perhaps our whole society goes "running for the shelter" a bit more than we should without full knowledge of the consequences of said drugs. I know I'm not happy with the long term effects of Zoloft and Effexor.

Or as one sister-in-law says about another sister-in-law, "time to water the plant". Funny, but then again not.

Regarding "Trapped in the Closet", if I didn't have such a great sense of humor, I might do the same if I were in his shoes. As I find South Park more disgusting than funny, I never saw that episode, so I can't really say.

Well, Doc, all week you didn't post, and I was just about to ask "how dare you disappear for a week with out a heads-up, when quite suddenly a weeks worth of posts appeared. I love technology.

If anyone is bored, FireDogLake has a post up from Thur. promoting Ms Huff's new book. It started out as a love fest, but me being in a devious mood tried to stear the worship in another direction.

It started off rather slowly with Jenny slapping me down, but by the end of the comments the tide had turned decisively. One for the good guys.

I found the links to it on YouTube, who knows how long it will stay there once the lawyers get wind of it.

South Park : Scientology - Part 1 of 3
South Park : Scientology - Part 2 of 3
>South Park: Scientology - Part 3 of 3

It was pretty much a triple threat episode since it made fun of Scientology (which REALLY infuriated a lot of people that follow it) rumors about Tom Cruise and R. Kelly's videos about being "Trapped in a closet" plus some hilarious parts about John Travolta joining him in there.

I was suprised that Isaac Hayes quit over it since they had already done an episode comparing Scientology to a cult involving the magician David Blaine. But they sure got him back by killing Chef off for being brainwashed into being a child molester.

I agree that it can be too disgusting sometimes, but I guess they think that you can't go wrong with poo and fart jokes.

Fortunately they also include some very outrageous satire and they don't care about going too far in offending someone as long as it's funny.

I just watched the videos.

Hilarious!

And to first poster, about http://davidcrowe.ca/SciHealthEnv/hiv-sex-jailtime.html
YEP I think it should be criminal to not reveal your HIV positive status and then pass HIV to your partner. Just like drunk driving is criminial.

Well, Mr Argon,

I can only conclude that Tom has no sense of humor. THAT was funny. I could understand the dialogue, which has alway been a problem for me with that show, as I'm hard of hearing (and at such a young age!) Nothing junior high disgusting (a la george bush) either.

I am pleased to see he did finally come out of the closet.

I saw their first work on the internets before they had the TV show and loved it. Santa v. Jesus. They seemed to slide into grossing folks out as the years went by, so they're no longer must see TV.

Granted.

I was also interested in your opinion about the validity of the claims about the disease in the article (described by the author, Dr Duesberg, and others).
