    Problems with Vaccines.. past and present.

    From my perspective, it is often not about making up facts (although that does sometimes happen) but about context. So yes. The "facts" surrounding patents might be spot on. You can look them up, see who applied, and even get their names and what the patent was all about. However, is it...

    North coast windmills?

    I remember that KCCI news piece about the sound and neighbors having ruined lives because of the sound, many folks laughed pretty hard at that one.
