  • I hope you’re proud of yourself for what you’ve caused all these dying people to go through. Putting out a hit piece criticizing those trying to save these people suffering from such a devastating disease. Instead of promoting this (as those who actually have the disease are doing), you instead try to make BCLI the villains for keeping their company from going under by accepting rightful payment for their treatment. You painted them in such a bad light that they really have no other choice but to deny treatment to all until they can get support to pay for those who can’t afford it. Are you stepping up to provide this support? ….no you are destroying the hope for these suffering souls. You sir will have the blood of many on your hands. I do not know how you live with yourself, as you are pure evil!! Anybody employing you should be ashamed as well as this will bring them falling down as well just by being associated with you!! You didn’t learn your lesson from when you were booted from the Street & now you deserve to be in jail. You are the one trying to profit off the suffering of others by telling outright lies so that you and your cronies can profit off shorting the stock. You sir deserve to go to prison (& much worse than that). You are a disgrace to human kind and karma is coming for you.
