    It's so sad how false his statements are. And how eager trump supporters are going to latch onto said statements. They're all brain dead.

    When the most corrupt governor of the 2010s makes more sense than the most ideological, idealistic, and idiotic president we ever had probably since Andrew Johnson, you know the country is in the shitter either way.

    I can't believe Christie of all people is saying something that makes sense.

    Trump is not going to stop any of that he said it right the first time he wants to bring the more arrests up. Does anybody know why? Because he owns stock very very wealthy stock and almost every pharmaceutical maker and provider.

    I can't believe no one ever thought to teach kids drug abuse resistance education. In fact, that would be a great program. We could call it D.A.R.E. and teach it to grade school kids all the way through high school.

    There's actually a reason why they would be prescribed, though... For instance, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, aspirin, etc. are blood thinners and can mask symptoms of serious conditions if someone has a weakened immune system or are anemic, etc. Doctors opt for prescriptions, like oxycodone (an opioid), because they treat the symptoms without thinning the blood. Most people just take what they're prescribed for whatever treatment they're having without developing a drug abuse problem...
