Ripped off from another fourm:

"Many states and municipalities have filed lawsuits against opioid drug makers that they blame for a national addiction crisis."

This is becoming the new norm. People are killing themselves left and right because they are misusing the product. And right away we have to blame the manufacturer. It's happening with firearms. Now it's with pain killers. It's completely insane. Oxycodone has existed since 1916. It was first introduced to America in 1939. Percodan came on the market in 1950.

Most all of these opiate pain killers have all been around in one form or another for close to a century. Now, all of a sudden, we have a big problem with people dropping dead to the tune of over 40,000 a year because they either can't, or won't follow the instructions that are printed on the bottle of every one of them that is prescribed.

What has changed? Obviously not the medication. So it's the attitude and behavior of the consumer who is taking it. When I had major knee, inner ear, as well as 2 hernia surgeries, I was prescribed narcotic pain killers for all of them. I followed the directions precisely. I never had a single issue. I quit taking them after the pain subsided enough to where I could go without them. With my first major knee surgery back in 1972, that was for over 4 months because I had complications.

It didn't matter because I never became addicted. Again, I followed the directions on the prescription bottle. "Every 4 hours, with no more than 4 pills in a 24 hour period", does not mean take 15 a day, and you'll get a great buzz on. This is what is happening.

Doctors are now forced to change how they prescribe this medication. Even to elderly patients who have never had an issue with it. And who many have been on for months. Even years on end because they live in constant pain. They now have to suffer, or else have to go through some B.S. "Pain Management" class, before their doctor can even write a refillable prescription for them.

Even then they have strict limitations they did not have to deal with before. As a result they now have to live in pain, when before they did not. They use the drugs properly, and without issues. But are now forced to suffer because others do not.

None of this nonsense is going to change anything. Any more than including these stupid "gun locks" will prevent firearm accidents. The easy way out never solves the problem. All of this falls under the, "Well, we have to do something!" pretext. Much like gun control, "Something" is rarely if ever the right thing.

Ya, his trolling of the left is masterful. It’s on a level we’ve never seen before. He should be awarded a medal for his talent and commitment in this.

Those 3 are big with me.

I also like his America first, nationalist, patriotic attitude. Not that I want to shit on other countries, but it's time we act on China - they aren't our friend and are a VERY serious competitor, and soon to be threat. Sometimes I fear that our scattered values and lack of unity of purpose, where we focus on the outlier instead of the big picture, may lose against a highly focused authoritarian directed China. They may come together around the fact that they're quickly rising above the mighty USA to become the most powerful nation in history, while we quibble and fight each other over what the definition of gender is. I still think our system is better, but we need to change and admit that we can fail if we aren't careful.

Remember when the blacks and gays just wanted equal rights? Now you’re a racist homophobe if you don’t actively hate your white cis gendered self.

You know, if you take all the white privilege theory and apply it to today except realizing that white straight people are the new minority being oppressed the 72 gender pronouns makes a lot of sense. If you’re a white kid going to school in one of these liberal schools where they tell you are a piece of crap every day and are forced to write papers about it; making up a crazy gender for yourself is basically a defense mechanism. Because now you are special and no longer “privileged”. It’s the skin bleaching of the 21st century.

As to this guy that wrote the article, I have 0 sympathy. This is the natural and predicted outcome of stuff I saw coming 10 years ago when he was sneering at the Christians who didn’t want to make a cake. If they can force someone to make a cake or lose their business for the sake of equality, they can certainly force your kid to go to a crappy school for the same reason. Moron.

The whole idea is to be beamed aboard and then OPEN FIRE! on alien freak asses.

If they make it to CA, they'll get driver licenses, free healthcare and welfare. Mandatory diversity training will be then added to schools to ensure new man eating monsters feel welcomed and not discriminated at all.

I respect Tulsi's stance, but Trump has done quite a bit to stay out of war so far.

For all my gripe against Trump, he has kept us out of war so I have no complaints over there.

Thanks for sharing. I think liberals have no room being near education, they are just destroying everything they touch. They've pushed mandatory lgbt and gender identity classes, they are teaching about all sorts of racial discrimination while trying to make being white a crime. They insult people in dignity and pretend they are on high moral ground. The fact that we don't have a civil war yet is a surprise.

I literally have to go almost into white supremacy territory to teach kids just to even out the mandatory school curriculum that wants to remove white people from earth.

Yeah, it is either Russia or Saudi. At least the Saudi's are rich.

Do you honestly think Russia or Saudi Arabia are happy that Trump dramatically increased fracking and energy production in the US and are building LNG export facilities?

Nothing hurts Russia and OPEC more than America being largely energy independent and acting as a hedge against oil shocks in the ME.

Thanks to the miracle of fracking, we now have the luxury of sitting back and letting Iran twist on a vine and not risk any of our troops in a shooting war or have our economy tank because of Muslims killing each other.

Virtually every Democrat candidate is pledging to ban fracking and shutter our booming energy sector making us hostage to Russia and OPEC again.

Haven't seen a single "gender-fluid" fucker at our school yet. Boys look and dress like boys, girls look and dress like girls, dads look and dress like men and moms look like MILFs and dress in yoga pants. ;)

Henry George was right about all of this 170 years ago.

There should be no tax on income or sales. Work and commerce are productive activities, so we should not tax them at all.

There only tax should be a tax on LAND values. Owning land is not productive.

Not house values. If you build on your land, that should not increase your taxes at all. Building is a productive activity.

It's very simple and fair: tax non-productive rent seeking.

The only thing in the way is parasites who live from non-productive rent seeking.

Liberal mindset is that everyone who is white oppresses others. It’s not equality until all poor fucks are piled on top of each other everywhere for rent seekers to fuck em.

I watched a YouTube video on a young guy in Finland talking about Trump. He said the same thing I have thought, that he was forever grateful to Trump for overtly exposing the mendacious propaganda machines of the legacy press by allowing them to use him for target practice. The Finnish dude does not trust the traditional organs of news, and is very careful now about evaluating the information he receives.

I like the term "blessings of diversity." It's where we get our "cultural enrichment."
