´It´s raining needles´: Drug

LOWELL, Mass.- They hide in weeds along hiking trails and in playground grass. They wash into rivers and float downstream to land on beaches. They pepper baseball dugouts, sidewalks and streets. Syringes left by drug users amid the heroin crisis are turning up everywhere. In Portland, Maine, officials have collected more than 700 needles so far this year, putting them on track to handily exceed the nearly 900 gathered in all of 2016. In March alone, San Francisco collected more than 13,000 syringes, compared with only about 2,900 the same month in 2016. People, often children, risk getting stuck by

No government safety net breeds a strong work ethic. I´m not proposing to sacrifice the sacred cows but I don´t think drug addition ought to be a disability for purposes of SS, Medicaid, Medicare, etc. Of course it impairs a person´s ability to work, duh. The easy answer is to not do drugs. Then we would have a lot less of raining needles.

Fallout from 9 months of apocalyptic propaganda from the Left. If I ever reached the point where even hope was hopeless, I might start shooting heroin to numb the pain, too.

The ´antifa´ has been telling the world every single day that Hitler is running America, the planet is lost without the Paris accords, etc. Who, among those who actually believe the BS, could possibly have any hope left?

I put the blame squarely on Hillary and the enemedia, as agents (conscious and willing or not) of the Evil One.

Growing up, my kids never got to experience the glory of sand against your bare feet while at the beach.

They always had on a pair of saltwater taffy sandals instead of being barefoot.

I could not trust the beach to not hide multiple items capable of causing great harm under the surface. I don´t know if they even make them anymore.

Needle exchange, methadone, safe ´shooting´ spaces. A subsidized activity always increases as also happens when risk (perceived or otherwise) becomes lower.
Greedy people soliciting our money to "help" addicts work to create more addicts so they can solicit more money.
The most compassionate thing we, as a society, can do is to make opiate use as hazardous and deadly as possible. That would save countless lives.

Bannon: I’ve Fought for Racial Unity
All My Life; Don’t Need Lectures

Breitbart Big Government, by Tony Lee    Original Article

Former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon does not need lectures on race relations from “limousine liberals” and the media elites who hang out in largely homogenous crowds and whose oh-so-progressive-and-forward-looking organizations and outlets do not have the effortless diversity of Breitbart News’ masthead. In a 60 Minutes interview, Bannon told CBS anchor Charlie Rose that he was raised in a desegregated neighborhood on the North Side of Richmond, Virginia, that is “predominantly black.” “I went to an integrated school, a Catholic school. I served in the military,” he continued. “I don’t need to be lectured … by a bunch

In a fascinating interview with 60 Minutes host Charlie Rose, Breitbart News chairman Steve Bannon explained why he is no longer Chief White House Strategist. (Photo) ***Click here to watch the 60 Minutes segment*** Mediaite reports: Throughout his interview on 60 Minutes, Bannon defended Donald Trump over a variety of tough questions and controversial matters shrouding the mogul’s presidency. This eventually prompted Rose to ask why Trump would’ve allowed such a stalwart supporter to leave his orbit in the White House. “To be this strong a defender,” Rose asked, “why aren’t you there?” Bannon answered that he was not cut

If Attorney General Jeff Sessions has his way, National Security Council staffers will undergo lie detector tests to find White House leakers. The Trump administration has been plagued by a series of leaks, ranging from transcripts of calls between President Trump and foreign leaders to reports of palace intrigue from top White House officials. (Photo) Axios reports: Attorney General Jeff Sessions has told associates he wants to put the entire National Security Council staff through a lie detector test to root out leakers.

HOUSTON- Michael Evan Hilburn says he can´t wait to start kindergarten this week at a school about 20 miles from the Houston shelter where he and his father have been living since Harvey devastated the city. The 5-year-old is a beneficiary of state and federal laws that seek to make it easier for homeless kids to go to school - a blessing, his father said, as they try to overcome the chaos of a catastrophic disaster that has disrupted life in the nation´s fourth-largest city. "The sooner he´s in school, the sooner I can start work," Michael Howard Hilburn said.

Hillary Clinton was so confident of victory last year that she bought a second house next to her residence in Chappaqua, New York, to accommodate White House staff during presidential retreats there. "I thought I was going to win," she said. The New York Post reported last year on the Clintons paying $1.16 million for the three-bedroom, ranch-style home next to their house in Chappaqua. The newspaper´s source said at the time it was thought to be a weekend retreat for their daughter Chelsea´s family.

A survey of over 65,000 seniors has found that virtually all -- 99.2 percent -- believe the media wants President Trump to fail, the latest condemnation of the president´s coverage. A Survey Monkey poll also found that most, 71 percent, back Trump´s reelection and many believe that he is making good on his campaign promises. The survey by the same company that conducts polls for major media outlets was done for the Association of Mature American Citizens, a more conservative alternative to AARP. The survey asked members 10 questions and found wide support for the president and his policies. It

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said in an interview broadcast Sunday that while she is "done" being a candidate, she is not leaving politics. "Is your political career over?" Jane Pauley asked Clinton on "CBS Sunday Morning." "Yes," Clinton responded. "As an active politician, it´s over. "I am done with being a candidate," she added. "But I am not done with politics, because I literally believe that our country´s future is at stake."

By now it’s hardly a surprise that so many national Democrats have nothing but contempt for Roman Catholics. But what is surprising is that they no longer even bother to hide their distaste for devout Christians. Last week, at a Senate confirmation hearing for a Roman Catholic woman up for an federal appellate court judgeship in Indiana, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) told the Catholic nominee this: “When you read your speeches, the conclusion one draws is that the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern when you come to big issues that large numbers of people have fought

A report by think tank Civitas says that the population of the United Kingdom is growing at a rate of more than 500,000 a year – the equivalent of a new town of about 10,000 people being created every week. The report, ‘Britain’s Demographic Challenge: The Implications of the UK’s Rapidly Increasing Population’, also said that based on current projections, by 2039 there will be nearly 10 million more people in the UK – enough to populate Greater Manchester three times over. “In the year ending 30 June 2016 the population of the United Kingdom increased by 538,500, equivalent to

Eric Bolling’s teenage son passed away last night, according to Huffington Post journalist Yashar Ali. A source told Mediate that the cause of death was suicide although a new report suggests he may have accidentally overdosed on drugs. Bolling broke his silence on the death of his only son, 19-year-old Chase Bolling, saying he was devastated and needed prayers. He also sent out an update from authorities regarding his deceased son’s condition and asked for respect during his family’s grievance period. But that didn’t stop the evil liberals from attacking a man who is in excruciating pain over the untimely

It cannot be overstated how eagerly the Democrats want to take back the White House in 2020. The Democrats face many obstacles in this effort, but the greatest threat is the fierce internal divisions within the party. Two of the leading prospective presidential candidates, Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), have begun national fundraising operations. Former Vice President Joe Biden has been busy building a national email list to communicate directly with his supporters, and Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) has already announced his presidential candidacy. The Democratic Party does not just need a new leader, but a new

On the same day that Fox News announced that it had “agreed to part ways amicably” with suspended conservative host Eric Bolling, Bolling’s son Eric, Jr. was found dead in Boulder, Colorado. (snip) A strange anomaly in this story is that Yashar Ali, the HuffPost freelancer who wrote the August 4 article alleging that Eric Bolling was guilty of inappropriate behavior years earlier, claims to have been the first one to break the news of Chase Bolling’s death. For example, in a HuffPost article on September 9 time stamped 2:31 P.M. E.T., Hayley Miller writes “Yashar Ali, the HuffPost freelancer

Keep these numbers in mind: 316 to 90 and 80 to 17. They were the lopsided votes in the House and Senate in support of the deal President Trump made with Democratic leaders on storm aid, the debt limit and government funding. Remarkably, all the no voters were Republicans. The numbers shout that we are witnessing a potential turning point in the Trump presidency, one that could further shake up Washington and rattle the calcified political parties. Frustrated by the failure of GOP majorities in both chambers to pass his agenda, Trump followed through on threats to work with Democrats. Signs suggest it was

The news that President Trump abandoned Republicans to strike a deal with congressional Democrats on a three-month extension of the debt limit yielded a predictable response from his predictable cheerleaders: It was brilliant and typically shrewd for the author of “The Art of the Deal” to take the very first offer the Democrats made and ask for nothing in return. Less obsequious observers on the right claimed this was the long-prophesied moment. The seventh seal had been broken. Donald Trump was “pivoting” at last. “The pivot is real and it’s spectacular!” proclaimed Ben Domenech, the publisher of The Federalist. In the lexicon

Washington - Hillary Clinton on Sunday called Donald Trump’s inaugural speech as president “a cry from the white nationalist gut”. Clinton was speaking in her first televised interview since her stunning defeat in the election in November, two days ahead of the publication of What Happened, her book about her defeat.

Who would ever dream of handing political leadership to someone whose crowning career achievement was a high-paying no-show job? As its next presidential candidate, is Michelle Obama the best the Democrats can come up with? That´s the view of pollster Douglas Schoen, who thinks they don´t stand a chance otherwise. In a piece for The Hill, he writes: As I’ve said before, the Democrats need an alternative plan to rebuild and unite the party if they have any hope in winning back seats in Congress in the 2018 midterms, nonetheless the White House in 2020. This alternative plan requires a new, united

Rob Ranco, a partner at the Carlson Law Firm, suggested Mrs. DeVos does not fully grasp how serious of a crime rape is, and that she might come to a different policy conclusion if she did. “I’m not wishing for it… but I’d be ok if #BetsyDevos was sexually assaulted,” Mr. Ranco said in a tweet on Friday evening. “Perhaps Betsy doesn’t understand how
