It would in the pharmacists’ best interest to start tending their own store before the government screws them up more than they already have.
Deb Beck, president of the Drug and Alcohol Service Providers Organization of Pennsylvania and State Rep Joe Hackett plead the case for a prescription drug monitoring in PA in an Erie Times-News editorial.
They make the point that overdose deaths by controlled substances such as OxyContin, Vicodin and Benzodiazepines are a leading cause of death. We need to monitor drug dispensation more closely to watch who gets what and to prevent doctor shopping.
They may be onto something but wait! Is not the drug industry one of the most government regulated, dare I say strangled, industries in the world?
Could there be a connection between government drug control and the rampant misuse thereof? Read the rest of this entry »

The only thing surprising about this story was that it was on lamestream media. Police vulgarities are an old story. To serve and protect is ancient history. Now it is Enforce and Arrest.
Internet sites such as:
Police State USA
are loaded with police brutality horror stories. Read the rest of this entry »

Do you, like I, wonder why with all this DHS/CIA/NSA spying does ISIS pop up from nowhere? These efforts don’t seem to be diminishing the terror threat.
How much of this spying is meant to curb international terrorism and how much is actually directed inward? Read the rest of this entry »

He blames Obama’s supposed reluctance to jump into the Syrian civil war as the reason for the current Iraqi mess. See here.
Obama effectively canceled air strikes against the Syrian regime, which had used chemical weapons on civilians in defiance of an American “red line.”
Gerson chooses to ignore Seymour Hersch’s London Review of Books expose of how Turkey’s president enabled the gas attacks to spur more US intervention in Syria.
We already know the US is already heavily involved in Syria by way of funneling arms left over from the Libyan war to Syria. That project resulted in getting four state department employees killed. Then there are the CIA and special ops boots on the ground that are not counted as “boots on the ground”.
On this foreign policy theory, challenges can be managed by narrowing them. Pick the solvable problem that relates most directly to U.S. interests — in this case, chemical weapons — without becoming embroiled in broader conflicts. And a message was duly sent to friends in the region (the Gulf states, Jordan, the Free Syrian Army): Apart from U.S. humanitarian assistance, they were on their own.
As it should be. Let the Middle East settle its own problems. Then again why should they bother? Saudi Arabia wants a hard-line Sunni ruled Islamic state and the US is unwittingly doing their heavy lifting. Read the rest of this entry »

Darrel Issa is putting the screws to new IRS Commish Koskinen.
Why anyone with any integrity would work for the IRS is a mystery. We will have an IRS integrity level dipstick check very soon. The results should not be a surprise. There will be no effective change. The IRS has the guns and badges to get the goods from the 50% of the population that is relieved of their hard-earned pay. Money talks everywhere but especially in government.
Now we find out that the IRS’ email backup system keeps so much data the IRS can’t find anything. Try telling them that next April.
One thing you can say about this administration and their media lapdogs is that no lie is too big. Read the rest of this entry »

Figuring out our Middle East policy makes explaining how WW I started look simple.
The modern era of Middle East destabilization began with the CIA’s overthrow of the Iranian government. It has been downhill ever since.
Ten years of Iraqi nation building, unwanted democratizing and the sacrifice thousands of US lives and a million innocent Iraqi citizens is instantly down the drain. A total waste.
Now Obama, McCain, Graham, Hagel and their war party want to start all over. Just like all the other government spawned programs that make things worse their answer is throw more money at it, not to mention the lives. It is easy when war is just something on a capital office TV screen.
Remember when the government says “no boots on the ground” that does not include special ops nor CIA. There will be more than the promised 300 advisors. I recollect we started with just 50 advisors in Vietnam. A year from now remember “300”. Read the rest of this entry »

Prior to 2001 and sanctions Iraq may not have been the greatest place to live but there was relative peace and women were allowed to get an education and were treated fairly well (women are third class citizens in Saudi Arabia home to our “friends” that bankrolled 9/11). There was no Al Qaida like there were no WMDs. The US liberated and democratized Iraq by bombing it to splinters and killing a million innocent civilians. Not to mention the loss of thousands of US soldiers. Now hundreds of thousands flee in fear of being overrun by so-called Al Qaida faction ISIS.
The result: Total hate for the US.
Afghanistan had the Taliban but few Al Qaida. But we were entrenched fighting a Taliban that never attacked the US. Thanks to US, a regional “terror” group escalated in power. Al Qaida grew too, big enough that the world’s policeman had to bribe to them not attack its truck convoys. Like those before us, Afghanistan was our graveyard. Not mention is a sinkhole for hundreds of millions worth of shrink-wrapped pallets of US dollars. Read the rest of this entry »

When I heard that the proposed new rules over the NSA had been watered down I wanted to know what were rules before and after. Then I realized it doesn’t matter.
A secret spy organization requests a secret warrant from a secret court that issues secret rulings.
After the secret ruling the NSA (FBI, DHS take your pick) does whatever they want anyway. If there is a chance a stink will be raised the regime’s “teams of lawyers” will come up with slimy double talk to cover their backsides. Read the rest of this entry »

The USDA is buying machine guns and body armor.
I don’t really think farmers are the primary target. Every department of the government is buying guns and ammunition. The government is spreading the wealth. No one department is buying a large volume except the DHS.
The definition of terrorist has quickly evolved to include radicals. Who are radicals?
The definition of radical hasn’t changed for a thousand years. Radicals are anyone that does not conform to what the rulers want. Antiwar activists, freedom lovers, anti-government types and anyone that doesn’t do or act as they told.
Terrorism is one crisis that is not being wasted.
The government has bought enough ammo to have a couple magazine’s worth for everyone. That includes you.
What have you done lately to stop the madness? Nothing? Better get your own body armor.
The “I haven’t done wrong” excuse won’t cut it. Not when the man decides he needs a better arrest/kill ratio. The cops can arrest, kill or make you forfeit your money at will in many areas now.
I can see it getting worse fast, especially when the current bubble bursts.
You should have voted for Ron Paul.
Be seeing you.

The Pope has come out in favor of “legitimate” wealth redistribution.
There is only one form of “legitimate” wealth redistribution and that is the free market. The redistribution Pope Francis and Obama have in mind is the government controlled variety.
Commonly referred to as taxes and theft. Read the rest of this entry »
