    There's nothing negative about pointing out the truth concerning chiropractic. It was founded by a complete nutjob snake oil salesman. The man literally claimed he discovered the concept after speaking with a ghost. Palmer was a quack.

    Modern chiropractic therapy is pretty much accepted as legitimate by the medical community.

    So you'r basing your negativity on the founding? You should research medicine. Do you know where the term "ignorance is bliss" is arrived from?

    Research medicine? What does that even mean?

    Chiropractic isn't medicine. Is a sham developed by a "magnetic healing" huckster during a pow wow with a ghost. Sounds like I'm making a joke...I'm not. That is exactly where it came from.

    Have you researched medicine. Obviously, treating symptoms with Eastern medicine is a sham. The use of marijuana for cancer patients is absurd. President Garfield did not die from an assassin's bullet. He died from the treatment of Doctor Bliss (ignorance is bliss). The doctors drained blood from President Washington. Today, that would be a "joke". Unfortunately, your options if your back goes out is to take pills or have back surgery. Good Luck.

    Eastern medicine is a fairly broad category to use. Some of it is a sham, some is not. I do believe there are some medical benefits to marijuana.

    Chiropractic on the other hand....complete sham.

    I [email protected]! (raises hand)...you see, there was this angel named Moroni.Now he was a little bony for an angel but nevertheless he appeared to John Smith (yes, that John Smith, not the billions of "alias John Smiths") and told him to get dancing. Smith said "what kind of dance should I do?" and the angel replied "why, the Bony Moroni of course..and I shall guide you to the promised land, the Land Of A Thousand Dances"...well, ol' John Smith had a ton of questions and the destination was certainly a mystery but....he followed Moroni's advice and danced his way from upstate New York all the way out to the NEW Dead Sea in Salt Lake, Utah. Smith and his followers played this tune the whole way to ward off marauding cannibals and dancing grizzly bears....the rest is religio/music history!

    Dont be a dpsht. The value of chiropractic therapy is well documented in medical journals. Aside from your dug in take on it, please show some current evidence that its quackery from legitimate sources

    He also has a great take about how the Hippocratic Oath was developed by a guy who believed in the Four Humors as being the foundation of all medicine (two kinds of bile along with phlegm and blood) and therefore is also quackery, therefore we should strike down the Affordable Care Act.

    Brady is the second coming of P.T. Barnum.

    People are out of work and dying and Tone Deaf Tommy is pitching a $300K Escalade telling buyers it might reduce their "stress level" among other things.

    “Parting ways with my Becker ESV won’t be easy. From day one it became my sanctuary from the outside noise,” the Tampa Bay Buccaneer star is quoted as saying in the listing. “I took pride in picking out all the customizations of the ESV; from the trim of the seats to the color of the rug. With such limited time in my busy schedule, the ESV gave me those extra minutes to study my playbook, make phone calls and be with my family. Immediately my productivity went up and my stress came down. I hope the next owner will take great care of her; she will always be a part of the Brady family.”
