Trump Lies About Opioids…


Date: August 19, 2018

01) Trump Lies About Opioids


“Drug overdoses killed about 72,000 Americans last year, a record number that reflects a rise of around 10 percent, according to new preliminary estimates from the Centers for Disease Control. The death toll is higher than the peak yearly death totals from H.I.V., car crashes or gun deaths.
Analysts pointed to two major reasons for the increase: A growing number of Americans are using opioids, and drugs are becoming more deadly. It is the second factor that most likely explains the bulk of the increased number of overdoses last year.

The picture is not equally bleak everywhere. In parts of New England, where a more dangerous drug supply arrived early, the number of overdoses has begun to fall. That was the case in Massachusetts, Vermont and Rhode Island; each state has had major public health campaigns and has increased addiction treatment. Preliminary 2018 numbers from Massachusetts suggest that the death rate there may be continuing to fall.

01) Florida Schools Forced To Display ‘In God We Trust’


“Public schools in Florida must display the national motto, “In God We Trust,” starting this week.

According to the Orlando Sentinel, public schools must display the motto in “a conspicuous place” under legislation sponsored by state Rep. Kimberly Daniels (D), who also leads a Christian ministry.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott (R) signed the bill in March. It requires “each district school board” to display the national motto inside “all of the schools of the district and in each building used by the district school board.”

01) Two 13 year old boys (2004)


“Thirteen-year-old David, living without a mother with a drinking father, meets the son of new neighbors…”

The thigh touching at about 5:45 in, leading into a black screen and heavy breathing…

…It’s curious how you only tend to see this sort of commonality in life, represented in independent films…

…I guess…reality of life is too much, for the big studios…who are solely concerned about making their money.

…The red headed mop top, is freaking cute!
