About Me

If I don't respond to your post I may have you on ignore, or simply be ignoring you.

I'm sorry that the drug war has put you in this situation.

I've been profoundly opposed to this drug war ever since I was forced to go through untreated kidney stone pain.

I definitely think we're going to start seeing lots more deaths from overuse of NSAIDS and Tylenol, and probably even alcohol, as a result of the mismanagement of this "crisis".

You might try looking into kratom. It's a ground up leaf that has mild opioid and possibly anti-inflammatory properties, and is currently still legal.

Yes. The TOS no longer gets enforced

Due to the way the jury system works. The only thing that gets enforced is the currently dominating groupthink.

I really wish they would ditch the jury system and go back to the previous system of moderators.

This is the product of a massive and sophisticated propaganda machine

That's been running now for decades. It's not just FOX and hate radio, but the entire infrastructure of think tanks that come up with the talking points and propaganda messages.

They've managed to create a population of Pavlov's dogs numbering in the tens of millions, who are conditioned to believe and behave in any way they want. Millions more people are more subtly influenced, even liberals.

At minimum, we need to create our own infrastructure to begin combating this machine.

A sitting R president would certainly have made a gigantic stink out of it.

With the elected R legislators joining in, going to the media and holding press conferences, pissing and moaning about how unprecedented and unfair it was.

They would also use every procedural tactic that they could possibly come up with.

Might even do an astroturf "protest" movement, like they did with the teabaggers, when they were harassing and disrupting Dem town halls.

They very likely would have ended up getting their way. If not, at least no one would be able to accuse them of not trying.

Yes. It comes from think tanks funded by Koch bros and other shadowy billionaires.

They've been building this propaganda infrastructure for decades.

They need to open these facilities up for public inspection immediately

And there needs to be prosecutions where appropriate.

A Republican congressman was just refused entry to one of these facilities, and told that they would need two weeks notice before allowing him access.

The Red Cross has been refused access.

The most likely reason for this level of secrecy is that the conditions are so heinously bad that they would be recognized as crimes against humanity if they were known.
