Why is The Opioid Crisis Now a National Emergency?
I just find it fascinating that suddenly POS drug addicts are now causing everyone to freak out in this country. Are any of you old enough to remember when crack first hit the market? What about the heroin epidemic in the late 70's and early 80's? What is happening now that is so different?

What does declaring a public health emergency do? Does it open up the checkbook of the government?

It's a legitimate argument/reason for the wall that can't be 'intelligently' debated against.jay

Someone can grow a pot plant at home, make meth in the sink..

But a poppy field?...not so much. It's targeted at the drug imports.

FACT, it is the drug fentanyl (imported from China)that is killing people. It is so potent that a tiny microdot can and does cause death. Address this problem. Leave the injured and diseased alone.
--.-.-.-.-.-.-

This assault on pain medicine is a witch hunt. Are the President and those advocating for the removal of all pain medications giving an alternative? Magic wand, magic dust, magic procedure to alleviate the pain that the diseased and injured endure all day every day?.

Most people on these pain meds have had all of the surgical procedures and therapy in an attempt to correct their damage from injury or disease.

They keep yelling it is Rural White people that are using the most medicine. NEWS FLASH. It is the white race who have little to no time off, no vacations, our funds pinched as tight as a crab’s ass.

We rush off to work to ensure that we aren’t fired, usually after working god knows how much overtime. ** Side note.. Overtime that is taxed at such a high rate that often you only get to keep pennies on the dollar.

Our fellow mankind the Hispanic, the blacks the muslims all in great numbers sit home stirring shit all day as they live in FREE housing, free healthcare, free phones, free internet, free food and all manner of free charitable contributions for school clothing and any and all needs.
When have you ever seen a White Charitable event? I am old, and have not seen any aid or assistance to white people in many decades.
Just because YOU don’t believe
in the Rougarou; or the Loup Garou, don’t make you safe; No !

The Constitution is a blend of 'moral certitude' -- which is one of the reasons that criminals are determined to be rid of it and We the People must be even more determined to defend it.

"If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace." - Thomas Paine

The only thing the Illuminati fears is an independent person who can live, eat, sleep, stay warm and defend themselves separate from Federal help. Pray that the Lord gives us more time! The End is near and time is short!

A fool takes no pleasure in understanding, but only in expressing his opinion. ~Proverbs 18:2

For decades millions of people took prescription opioid pain relievers without becoming addicted. No problem.

Then we have a zillion foreign born non-white primary care, generalist doctors who stopped prescribing pain medication because of "addiction."


You still have people in pain but now they can't get pain meds.

They try to buy it off of the street, but pills have become so expensive that no one can afford to buy them on the black market for long.

You FLOOD the street market with cheap heroin laced with Fentanyl from China and sell it dirt cheap.

That is the intended result and it's working very well.

Trump is using this in 2 ways.

1. To truly address the issue of drug abuse in our country.

2. Trump is sending a message to the UN/NWO/DeepState/Juice that he is coming for them and that they are no longer going to profit from addicts in the USA.

It's all about total control. Once they have control over your health they control everything.

If we can't treat people in pain then it's over folks. We are third world status.

Are you kidding me? It's the opposite, the foreign born doctors are the ones over prescribing... they don't give two fucks and will write out anything.

I have an old school white doctor, and maybe 5 years ago or so I herniated a disk in my back... I never even asked for anything for the pain even though I could hardly stand but twice during the exam he told me he wouldn't prescribe opiates almost expecting me to walk out.

My buddy blew his back out less severely than I did and his Indian doctor loaded him up with Percocets the second he asked, and I've seen the same with other people I know as well.

It's worse now. I have a friend who's a paramedic in Providence, on most days she spends her whole shift going from one overdose scene to the next, sometimes the same house twice in a day.

The next overdose call sometimes comes in while they're transporting the previous.

And it's not junkies in the ghetto. It's middle class suburban kids 15-25.

A good friend of mine is a cop in an upper middle class Massachusetts town. Almost on a daily basis now he's finding people passed out in cars after shooting up... not overdosed usually but just asleep after shooting up a bit too much.

The old timers in the department say it was never like this.
