    know something about the NIH and CDC budgets.  I also know about the massive waste of billions because of non-negotiation of costs for pharmaceuticals and the completely criminal creation of new mental illnesses -- many of which are created by the unnecessary prescription of drugs which have no more benefit than a placebo.

    Sure -- if you want to focus on one or two agencies -- that's your right.  The savings from addressing the criminality in the Pharma industry alone could provide additional support for NIH, CDC and expand Medicare.

      NO NIH agency did this, so kindly cut the freakin' lies:

      also know about the massive waste of billions because of non-negotiation of costs for pharmaceuticals

      The NIH is a research organization.  It does not buy billions of dollars worth of pharmaceuticals.

        I said NIH did what I indicated.  I'll wait.  The agency is the FDA.  I did not connect the two -- you did.

        There are three new books out and a two part review in The New York Review of Books on this very topic.

        Carry on.

          said "NIH" (it's all right there for everybody to check!)

          So again, kindly stop making shit up.

          •  You asked me if I knew (0+ / 0-)

            anything about the NIH budget.  I said I did.  Then I explained where billions were lost.  So, if I know something about the NIH, one, who is a careful reader, would comprehend that I also know that NIH has zero to do with Pharma's drug criminal enterprise.

            Carry on.

            •  You then went on to lump the CDC (2+ / 0-)

              with the NIH.

              This PDF describes the CDC's ~$10 billion budget in detail

              If you wish to point me to the (quite imaginary!) page where THEY waste billions and billions on pharmaceuticals, I'd be much obliged.

              Otherwise, why don't you stop making shit up to bash the NIH and/or CDC and just STFU.

              Unless you'd wish to explain your motives in bashing these grossly underfunded agencies with complete fabrications, I'd actually be rather interested in hearing THAT!@!

                of responding to someone who lacks the skills of reading -- injects a goofy interpretation and repeatedly calls me a liar and tells me to STFU.

                I could write most of your comments for you because you are so predictable.

                I'm enjoying my day while you are cranked to 11 with a complete stranger.  Hilarious.

                •  Very well, I see you have absolutely no (0+ / 0-)

                  defense for lumping the "non-negotiation of pharmaceuticals" in with the NIH (or, for that matter, the CDC) budgets.  That just does not happen no matter how much you claim it does.

                  I didn't really think that you would be able to defend that, ha.

                  Quite frankly, I totally realize that you are quite a "respectable" person here at DailyKos while many people regard me as a total DumbAss.  Nevertheless, when election day comes, the vote of a dumbass counts the same as a Respectable Person.  And when a dumbass gets lied to too many times, and too blatantly, who knows what they will do.

                  Maybe go vote for Ralph Nader.  Again, who knows.

      •  You sound like a (0+ / 0-)

        child with a paper asshole so bite me and learn how to read.

        Just as prostitution is the world's oldest profession, religion is the world's oldest scam.
