Why do these corporations even bother advertising this poo:

I wouldn't touch this stuff with a ten foot pole while standing on the roof of a 30 story building contemplating either a swan dive or a two and a half with a twist.

Seems like they'd be much better off having doctors prescribe it to some poor unsuspecting sap.

Americans are easily persuaded by "easy buttons"..

I used to work in the pharmacy, lots of people use pristiq (mostly males). This drug is expensive as hell... People think doctors know better, if doctor said it must be true... But after working in the pharmacy for over 6 years, I learned that most doctors are complete idiots and not honest when it comes to prescription drugs. Do your homework people.

You need the drugs because after you watch the advertisement you are going to want to commit suicide.

Doctors are just like everyone else- fast food employees, mechanics, bartenders, project managers, and strippers. There are a few exceptionally good ones, a lot of mediocre ones, and a quite a few that aren't worth their weight in discarded peanut shells.

So I don't think it's fair to say "most doctors are complete idiots." I mean, let's be honest with ourselves. You can't be an idiot and make it through that challenging work load in school. Everything is relative, though, and when you're talking about your health, even your life, the slightest swing towards the wrong direction can leave you miserable.

But I absolutely, even emphatically agree that people should research their current or potential doctors.

Called book smart... I know many people that had almost perfect GPA in college yet lack common sense.

I've been taking alternative medicine classes. I'm prepared for what is needed and only taken one script in the past 18 months. Everything else has been natural cures. I didn't know how to fix my ear infection and put eye drops in my ear. Funny that the same script for ear drops when used for eyes was a fraction of the cost but the exact same formula. My herbalist was out of town so I didn't know what to do for my ear so had to go to Minute Clinic.

    • Glad you can point to 1 off season to hang your hat on, when it comes to your opinion.  Doesn't give you much to stand on. What exactly are we crowning him anyways?   
    • I'm sure he's learned his lesson not to have a conversation with our fan base because of the way this way blown out of context. He didn't ask a question. He didn't imply anything. However, the same fans that only read headlines and then share posts on Facebook (without reading the article) decided to make all kinds of accusations and assumptions about this. So yeah....Bill should be more clear because we aren't very smart.  Edit: FYI...."if picked up" is not a question it's a statement. Should he have just assumed instead?
    • Nate Silver did an analysis on this, and not sure which party it would benefit more but what he did say was that it would likely hurt GOP more to pass it than for it to fail That is how unpopular this bill was
