It's good for what ails ya!

Sam Madonia gave a platform to some pyramid marketing shills this morning. To his credit, he did question their methods for peddling their magic pills, but let them off the hook after they declared their allegience to capitalism. Nothing wrong with that, but I would have liked Madonia to press them on the credibility of a drug that hasn't undergone the testing necessary for FDA approval. I didn't hear the entire segment so I don't know what kind of claims these Ponzians were making, but on their Web site they advise suckers, I mean people, to "imagine the possibilities" and go on to suggest increases in energy and mental acuity. I guess their elixir is intended to just help people "imagine" health benefits.

I'll be contacting WFMB later to see if AM Springfield will do a live remote from my three-card monte box I plan to set up outside the presidential museum next week.

Those magic pill sellers are selling to the same type of suckers they have sold to for centuries. Generally they are people who are hypochondriacs or have a genuine ailment for which there is no known cure.

I believe the were representatives of Omni Life Sciences and they were pushing a "fountain of youth" type remedy.
