Got a link? In the posting of 9/10 he writes
that Obama is the leading recipient of money
from pharmaceutical industry (which is true)
but does not accusing him of being a pharma
shill. Vaccinations are not mentioned at all,
did you mean another posting?

So make up your mind -- would, or would not, a forensic accountant
using ordinary methods and the usual authorizations find evidence
of these payments you claim to exist?

Yes, but now he has officially moved into George Hammond territory.

Many thanks! From you the recognition
of kookhood is indication that you are out
of arguments, have NO useful response and therefore
descend to childish name calling.

I profoundly hope you have reformed you position
of Gates as Humanitarian otherwise your status
as a REAL skeptic is seriously undermined.

Now get with it Peter Bowditch -
and while you are at it, please invoke
your Ouija board, rune stones,
or whatever it is you use
to draw conclusions
and reassure us that McCain
will NOT be our next President.
