    Re: Merck Cooks Up Phony Peer Related Journal

    Why did I call this thing a peer related journal? Peer-reviewed. Back to the books for me. :ugh:

    How do you edit a title?

    Edit: OK, fixed.

    That is only a blog referring to an article that we can't access.
    Can you post some excerpts from the article that we can't access?

    we need Ron Paul to be President so that corporations are more free to do this kind of stuff. :rolleyes:

    If Libertarians ever get their way you're basically substituting a public government for a private one.

    So were the drugs approved by the FDA?

    Were they (FDA) the ones to uncover the fraud?

    You mean the FDA that's filled with industry cronies? Again, just get rid of the FDA all together instead of fixing it, that'll help.....

    I don't disagree, IMO the whole health care system will look worse than the FDA if obama has his way.

    If its not in pubmed (which it wasn't) it wouldn't be taken seriously anyway. Well, maybe by the MDs, those guys will believe anything.

    Every once in a while I'll come across a doctor who is very intelligent or even brilliant, but 8 of 10 are idiots who come from wealth and slid through crappy med schools. I'm not impressed by doctors whatsoever. Imagine how bad doctors are in Mississippi and Florida?

    (...apologies to doctors on this forum)

    There is a projected major future doctor shortage, so the past several years all med schools have been loosening up requirements.

    I was being sarcastic, the answer isn't get rid of the FDA and every government agency because they are corrupted, the answer is to clean them out and prevent industry cronies from getting jobs there in the first place. The whole reason they are corrupted in the first place is because of the power of big business that libertarians want to completely defer to.

    Maybe if those states raised their taxes a couple hundred percent, tolled everything, and grew gubmit a couple times too many, then their doctors would be just as good as Maine's. They'd certainly be way up there on the Health Index, that's for sure.
