Alexandra Capelouto was found slumped over on her bed by her mother, Christine, two days before Christmas. The 20-year-old sociology major at Arizona State University, who had returned home to Temecula, California on her winter break in 2019, had taken what she thought was a batch of oxycodone to help her sleep. Instead, it was fentanyl, the deadly drug destroying lives across America. The man who sold it to her, Brandon Michael McDowell, 23, was jailed for nine years in February.

There's a pill for everything, and millions of people happily swallowing them on the advice of their so-called doctors. Then there are the other class of miscreants and criminals who alter the meds with deadly additives. Why would a 20 year-old need help sleeping? Such a sad and needless waste of her life. I used to enjoy several women's magazine subscriptions but long ago let them expire. They had turned into little more than advertisement vehicles for prescription drugs. It was not uncommon for a drug's ad to be multiple pages. Our society is truly in peril.

Most residents of San Francisco are happy with the way things are in the city. Businesses are leaving, homeless druggies are everywhere and human excrement a common sight on sidewalks. This place is a Democrat heaven, you might say. Get rid of fentanyl, it will soon be replaced by something else where "...little cable cars climb halfway to the stars..."

Do you suppose this was the first time Alexandra had taken pills that she bought without knowing what they contained? And she took a "batch" of what she thought was oxycodone pills. How many pills does it take to induce sleep plus oxy's are really for pain reduction. If you need a sleep aid the local drug store has a variety of over the counter potions that work just fine and you're not gonna wake up dead.

Oxycodone is a pain medication. If she was having trouble sleeping, she could have gone to the drug store and bought some Sominex or gotten a prescription for something like Trazodone which is not a narcotic. She made a stupid choice to buy something on the street instead. #1, it’s not unusual for a 20 year old to have trouble sleeping. I’ve had trouble sleeping my entire life and have taken Trazodone for over 20 years.

The biggest mistake a person can make is to assume we live in a safe world. A person buys a drug off the street and thinks it's safe? Why? Who is looking out to make sure it is safe? Nobody. The same can be said for prescribed drugs. So many come with a long list of side effects up to and including death. It's a game of Russian roulette and most of us are playing it.

No doubt that ready availability and lack of condemnation of drugs is a factor. But, I don't think anyone forced them to take these drugs. Life is all about choices. Choosing to take illegal drugs...or even legalized dope is a very, very poor choice.

I am not unsympathetic to this family's pain. I grew up in the 1960's. I have never taken illegal drugs, or drank alcohol or smoked anything. Those notions just seemed so strange and foreign to me. My idea of a good time was not consuming any substance that could make me stupid or perhaps wake up in a strange bathroom next to the toilet. Let alone killing me. Why would anyone buy some pill from an unknown source and pop it into their mouth? I agree we are a pill oriented society. I have a friend whose early 20 something daughter wanted to visit the doctor to get some medication. It seemed all her friends were on "something" and she was feeling left out. These kids have been told since day one "they are special" and should never have to experience pain, disappointment, failure, a challenge, any struggle that might rock their emotions was not acceptable. They have not been shown how to handle the ups and downs of life. I don't know what the answer is but when you see the homeless in these big cities spaced out and all these kids chowing down street pills and the bodies pile up it is sad and scary and I don't get it. Stupidity kills more people than anything else.

Hunter Biden and his Ukrainian gas firm employer were involved in setting up an account with a foreign bank that was shut down after a money laundering investigation. Burisma, the allegedly corrupt Ukrainian gas firm that hired the President's son in 2014, set up an account with him in Malta at a bank that later closed following a financial crimes probe, bombshell emails show. The revelation that the First Son and Burisma are linked to a bank accused of flouting money laundering rules, comes after claims made by a longstanding FBI informant revealed this month by lawmakers, that Burisma's owner sent $10 million to Hunter and his father

Our insatiable need for water may be keeping us alive, but it's shifting the tilt of the Earth, a new study shows. Researchers in Korea say the removal of groundwater around the world for drinking and irrigation is altering the Earth's mass and in turn making its axis 'wobble'. Changing the position of the axis can potentially increase the amount of sunlight the poles are getting, which can increase the melting of polar ice. According to the team, we've shifted such a large mass of water that the Earth tilted 31 inches (78.5cm) east between 1993 and 2010 alone.

U.S. Census Bureau data shows that as of 2022, more than 18 million children across the nation live in fatherless homes — indicating that about one in four children do not have a father figure in their household.

Monday, the nineteenth of June, is our newest federal holiday (just 2 years old), Juneteenth, and federal workers get yet another day’s pay without having to work for it. Since the federal workforce is heavily overrepresented with black workers (18.2% of the federal workforce versus 12.6% of the population), the words “disparate impact” come to mind, benefitting African Americans with a paid holiday that not too many other employees get, judging by the fact that I was able to book two appointments with service providers tomorrow before I even realized Monday was holiday.

Instead, they were livid with Florida for executing Duane Owen because the state refused to allow Owen to “transition” to female. (Snip) “No one should be killed by the state.
