Hello "Docca"

You write:

 >>everybody else has to (interpret) "guess" as to what he may have

Nope, I was referring to Kevin. And I never claim to speak for
anyone but myself. Check all past e-mails.   :)

 >I guess your  guess is not as good as mine... ours. Whatever.

See that's my "point" Docca. I'm not "guessing." The comments I
have made in this thread regarding the people Budd has worked
with are based on _first_hand_ knowledge. Unlike your own. Do
the math "Docca."

I attended four, sometimes as many as six, of Budd's meetings
each year for five-and-a-half years. An average of twenty to
thirty of his clients attended each meeting. Budd went out of
his way to invite -different- folks each time so that they could
_all_ get a chance to attend one of his get together's at least
once. Because of my _work_ relationship with Budd, and because I
was the webmaster of IF, they would all go out of their way to
catch me after meetings to meet me and ask questions or engage
me in what were mostly very lively conversations.

You conveniently forget that I worked very closely with Budd for
all that time. Don't take _my_ word for it, call Budd, ask him.
Call Greg Sandow, ask him. I was the guy that _developed_ IF
into what it eventually became, a broad-based service
organization for those who seek help or information about UFO
abduction. Because of the nature of my position/function as
webmaster of the Intruders Foundation I, (of necessity) came
into _direct_contact_ with almost _all_ of the 'local' clients
that Budd acquired.

It was _Budd_ who asked me to call them and to talk to them. So
you see, I actually worked and socialized with the group of
people whose intelligence and individuality you are insulting.
It is the sole reason I am 'on you like white on rice' over this
_public_lie_ you have told about them. (That they all agree with
the respective researchers 'take' on the subject.) BS!

In a slip, or a moment of lucidity you yourself have stated that
the 'few' of these individuals that you have met all "impressed"
you with the diversity of their views. Which is in direct
contradiction to the claim you make about all of them "sharing"
a "point of view". You make them sound like mindless drones that
are incapable of having an original thought on their own.

I'm not only 'calling' you on it, I publicly challenge you to
substantiate it. Something that after three or four of these
posts you have yet to do.

Mucho talk-o, no proof-o!   ;)

 >>Show me the poll or the interviews with a substantial group of
 >>either Budd, David, or John Mack's clients that substantiates
 >>these outrageous claims that they 'uniformly' all share the
 >>_same_ point of view as the individual researchers in question?

 >I cannot do that, Johnny, I would be exposing several

Not true. Because you can't. How many is "several" three? Four?
I want to know how many - not their names - of either Hopkins',
Jacobs', or Mack's case studies you polled or interviewed in
order to _substantiate_ your insulting and outrageous claim
that they all agree with the viewpoints of the researchers in

You can't do that, so you dance and dance as fast as you can and
still you do not _answer_ my simple but relevant question.
Substantiate your claim that all of the abductees that any of
the aforementioned gentlemen have hypnotized, all agree with
their respective points of view.

It's simple Jimbo, either you admit that you have absolutely
nothing to back up the claim, or provide the total number of
Budd, David, and John's clients that you interviewed _before_
you publicly posted this _blatant_ and insulting lie about them.
Well can you? I don't want to hear all the extraneous crap you
are throwing at me. Just the answer to that one simple question.

 >>As opposed to Mortellaro or even yourself, I actually _know_
 >>these folks personally. I'm telling you that you're both dead
 >>wrong in your statements. Please tell me _how many_ of Budd,
 >>David's or John's clients you polled or interviewed.

 >Hey, out there... in the void? Whaddya say? Takers?

Yeah "Void", are you listening? Jim's in trouble here, he cannot
possibly substantiate the outrageous claim that he has made and
now his shoe is firmly stuck in his mouth. Can any of you help
him to dislodge it please? Just point to the poll or study that
was made of Hopkins', Jacobs', and Mack's clients that
substantiates Jim's insulting claim about all these folks. A
collective group of individuals that represents many hundreds of

Help Jim, he really needs it.
