It is so obvious that you do not know what you talk about! WCA is a small exterm “organisation”. Barrrett use to talk about WCA without mention that it is a very small organization! The big USA organisation is ACA http://www.acatoday.org/level1_css.cfm?T1ID=42 ACA has 90% of the organised DCs, and ICA around 10%(Both ACA and ICA has taken a clear stand aginst WCA Because they try to foul people using the name “WCA”.).
There are some small organisations wihtout influence WCA is one of them, and WCA have choosen a name in order to foul people. Barret of course know that. But Barrett is also using WCA to foul people, but with other motives than the Romberg family who own WCA.
Here is some facts about WCA:
RESOLUTION # 1
AMERICAN CHIROPRACTIC ASSOCIATION RESOLUTION
ON THE WORLD CHIROPRACTIC ALLIANCE
Submitted by the ACA Board of Governors
WHEREAS, the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) has a history of inclusiveness and consensus building with a wide array of associations and individuals, inside and outside the chiropractic profession; and supports the core values of chiropractic and the importance of a democratic process in representative associations, and
WHEREAS, the World Chiropractic Alliance (WCA) filed official, corporate documents with the State of Arizona in 2000 indicating that the organization only had 240 “members” at that time and has not offered any information to indicate more significant numbers of verifiable members, and
WHEREAS, the WCA maintains a secret “membership” list and is not listed in any recognized directory of membership associations including the 2004 Association Yellow Book, and
WHEREAS, the WCA does not permit its “members” to vote to elect the officers or other board members of the WCA organization, and
WHEREAS, the un-elected president of the WCA is specifically designated in the WCA charter documents as “President for Life,” and
WHEREAS, the WCA Vice President (who is not a D.C.) is the son-in-law of the WCA “President for Life” and the WCA Chief Financial Officer is the wife of the WCA “President for Life”, and
WHEREAS, the WCA “President for Life” and these two family members also hold the positions of Chairman of the Board, Chief Operating Officer, President and Chief Financial Officer with the family-owned, WCA endorsed CBS malpractice insurance entity. In ACA’s opinion, those positions give the appearance that the WCA is being used to sell products and services for the benefit of the “President for Life” and his family, and
WHEREAS, the WCA fervently promoted a bill (HR 2560) that would have stripped physician status from doctors of chiropractic and continued its efforts to promote this legislation even though 48 state chiropractic associations officially opposed it, and
WHEREAS, WCA actions on Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) and Department of Defense (DOD) legislation helped promote the positions and interests of the other non-chiropractic professional associations who have traditionally lobbied for issues detrimental to the chiropractic profession’s interests.
WHEREAS, the WCA “President for Life” placed his interests above those of veterans by proclaiming to the VA Secretary, “I would rather see chiropractors excluded from the entire [VA] program rather than included for the wrong reasons”, and
WHEREAS, the above public information was derived from the WCA website, publications, communications, corporate documents and our experiences with the organization, be it therefore
RESOLVED, it is the view and position of the American Chiropractic Association that the WCA has significant and unacceptable conflicts of interest within its un-elected leadership, does not qualify as a representative membership association and does not have sufficient “membership” to warrant consideration as a national or international decision-maker or representative voice for the chiropractic profession. “
So Barrett is using Rombergs bluff to bluff a bigger audience that WCA is chiropractic. But in USA ACA is chiropractic. http://www.acatoday.org/level1_css.cfm?T1ID=42
Barrett is using the same methods that the committe against quackery used in order to foul people. Check the history in #37.You can also read about WFC : http://www.wfc.org/website/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=110&Itemid=107&lang=en
So I am sorry you are fouled by Barrett. Why don´t you check the facts yourself instead of beliving in your leaders as in a traditional church??? And this is CENTER FOR INQUIRY ??
