    Your post reveals how utterly ignorant you are of this national problem. Hopefully you never are ‘enlightened ‘ through direct exposure – but sadly… chances are perhas ‘better’ than not. .

    I LOVE the United States and I would NEVER vote for Cruz.

    Tragically FAR TOO MANY people can share a similar sad, tragic story.

    Really Monk-man?
    You’re gonna TRY and suggest that people can be taught to be gay?
    Care to explain just how some one ‘converts’ to homosexuality.
    Maybe you’d like to play-out a possible ‘Convert to gay’ lecture. Might go something like this…
    ‘OK students. Today you’ll learn about a lifestyle you can choose to follow that will allow you to become the target for abuse from those you know, those who will say they love you, and those who know nothing about you. A lifestyle where you’ll be able to have others deny you some of the most important rights and privilige others enjoy. A lifestyle that some claim will condemn your soul to eternal damnation. Sound inticing?’
    I bet students will be lining up for those kind of conversion classes. And then throw in a little; How to Hate America’ enlightenment and… The classrooms will be packed.

    That’s it. Let your anger out. Vent your rage.
    That – along with staying on your meds – should help.

    theloanguy56: “Liberal state, right?”

    Are you actually going to try and suggest that ONLY liberal states are facing this terrible problem?

    JohnofOregon: “This is becoming a national security issue.”

    Tell that to seentoomuch because he seems to feel: “it is not the responsibility of the federal government to solve.”

    BIG difference between mocking Trump and his policies / politicking – or mocking his supporters when they blindly support him — and mocking Trump and his dead brother.

    BIG difference.
    But I guess you can’t see that – eh?

    seen

    First. Care to show / explain how you come to the conclusion that heroine addiction is the No 1 campaign issue in N.H.?
    I’ve been watching / reading lots of news and except for my local western PA news outlets doing stories on this tragedy… Within the past month I haven’t seen ONE national story or any story even identifying N.H. and this issue together – or even really one national story on the issue.

    That’s not to say the issue isn’t getting some coverage but… No 1 issue? Hardly

    And just to note. This issue is VERY HIGH on my radar right now as we JUST buried the 23 year old son of a relative who lost his battle with this terrible addiction.

    Additionally seentoomuch
    There is NO CAUSE for you to mock Trump and the loss of his brother with your Two Corinthians remark. It shows only that you are cold-hearted.

    I will note though – with the understanding that Cooper did specifically ask Trump about the loss of his brother BUT… Instead of making ‘it’ all about The Donald – like he so often does – he could have used the opportunity to bring greater awareness to the problem of alcoholism and perhaps more importantly NOW – the problem our nation is having with heroine addiction. Hundreds/THOUSANDS (of mostly young males) are dying yearly from this terrible addiction. And Trump missed a prime opportunity to bring attention to – and perhaps offer his policy ideas to address this reality.

    It’s: ‘Make AMERICA Great’
    Not…. ‘Make The Donald look greater

    And I’ve always wondered about this – and that is… Why is Limbaugh intentionally so divisive – so arogant – so righteous?
    I’m not saying anything. I’m just asking a question.

    Thank you for your service as a firefighter. Besides my cousins that I mentioned my father-in-law is also a retired firefighter so… I have great respect for the ‘job’ such folks do.

    I am sorry but… After having searched for info I still haven’t found any proof of your contention that the “Zadroga Bill” was not getting passed because it had college.aid for illegals attached to it. Can you please provide a link or two identifying that?
    Thanks

    Intersting how you seem to forget that these Committee hearings are staffed by BOTH Democrats AND Republicans and as I recall…
    After 11 hours of having Hillary testify at the Benghazi hearing… Not a single Republican was able to ‘break’ ~Cough…Cough… Hillary and pull from her anything that truly implecated her of significant wrongdoing.
    And sorry but I don’t recall any specifc Committed email server hearings.

    ~Cough…cough…
    Seems no Republican has been able to find significant (illegal) wrongdoing by Lerner / others at the IRS.

    “Not that this guy is not a dirt bag, but…” I’m still going quote and agree with him as if what he offers is the most legitimate aspect of all this.

    Maybe if YOU were paying attention to who is the criminal here…

    How ironic that you once again are unwilling / UNABLE to address the content of my post or even anything related to this story.

    My guess is its not all that painful for you to be going through life with such an abused mind. After all… There are lots of good meds available out there and I’m guessing you’re on a few (right now).
    But all seriousness aside….

    How do you get thru the day without hurting yourself?

    Monk-man

    How… ironic it is that you are complaining about how Cummings didn’t give a hoot about his (supposed) involvement and the IRS involvement in (supposedly) illegally targeting Tea Party tax exempt applications – AND YET…
    You’re ‘forced’ to then reveal that Cummings and his staff STILL NEEDS to be implecated on that.
    SOooooooo…
    You’re complaining NOT about the POS Shkreli and his actual arrest – or Shkreli and his certain (not supposed) 5000 percent price hiking on a life saving drug – BUT INSTEAD… You chose to complain about *******’s focus on the POS Shkreli AND you, in eseence, are complaining that someone else apparently has not focused and done their jobs in implicating Cummings (for his SUPPOSED role in the IRS scandal).

    You never cease to amaze Monk-man.
    What you choose to focus your anger on is rather… Disturbing.
    But not unexpected from you.
    Being aware of your Black / Obama Plantation Owner Manifesto… It makes we wonder where your ‘motivation’ for railing against Cummings really comes from.

    And on what grounds do you base your claim that “his agenda is constitutionally based”?
    Many others would disagree with you.
    Many others would say the policies / desires of others are the ones that are constitutionally based.

    Can you actually present what DEFINES a “true conservative”?
    I can guarantee I can find another conservative that would say whatever you say is incorrect.

    Just as we can each identify what we believe or what other supposed experts believe are the founding principles. of this country.
    Why do you think there is hardly ever any consensus in the Supreme Court – or elsewhere?

    Socialism

    Most “get paid by someone to say that”
    Do you have ANY proof to substantiate that claim?

    I personally was ‘indoctrinated’ as a Christian / Catholic and yet… NOT going and looking to refute what I was taught all my life – often by those I most loved… I still have come to the contrary interpretations that I now hold. My views on many ‘critical elements’ of life have changed – continue to change.
    All that means… What?
    We are all continuously performing ‘cost benefit’ analysis on all the elements within our lives.

    No one – no reasonable and responsible person is asking that you ‘turn your life over’ to Clinton, Obama – or anyone or anything else. Well… That said… Many DO want you to turn your life over to the god THEY believe in (and ignore / never even consider turning toward any other god).

    AGAIN I will offer…
    A wise man learns more from his enemies than a fool from his friends.

    If you TRULY sought to find the answers to your questions AND truly tried to at least UNDERSTAND WHY others hold those ‘answers’…
    THAT, for me, leads to true enlightenment and the ability for one to make their own ‘enlightened’ choices.

    Wow. You live on the Gulf Coast and you still ask such an incredibly ignorant question like: “then why don’t the fish markets ever run out of fish?”
    Seriously?
    High fuel prices are going to be the very least of worries for our world’s ‘fishermen’ if they continue to terribly over-fish our oceans.

    Heed you own advice.

    Care to present what DEFINES a “Christian Nation” proverbs?

    Explain to us all – if you would (COULD) please – how the history of our nation as YOU know it differs so greatly (supposedly) from the history not taught to all those supposed “dumb down indoctrinated democrats”

    As I just noted in another post on another story here – but interestingly enough it seems to fit here somewhat…
    Our forefathers (most I believe) came – some would say ‘escaped’ – most certainly revolted from – predominately Christian countries and so… Any interpretation of god given rights came from those countries first.
    Right?
    Point being…
    Our nation’s foundation – if one wants to argue it as a Christian-based foundation – our nation’s “divinely inspired’ basis was pretty radically different – a REVOLUTION actually – against the very same – many would also argue “divinely inspired’ Christian ‘background’ – of the nations our forefathers came from

    In other words… How our forefathers INTERPRETED ‘divine inspiration’… That inspiration still came from but another divinely inspired Christian background.

    Today – me personally – I see a very similar (and potentially as dangerous) ‘revolution’ among American Christian believers (and others).
    We have MANY who profess a Christian faith who believe homosexuals should share in marriage equality. And then we have others – ALSO professing a Christian faith – who believe homosexuals should NOT share in such equality.

    Abortion
    I personally know many professing Christians who state that abortion is wrong – a sin – but who still vote pro-choice.

    And I see many other similar – but perhaps not as ‘visible’ divides.

    Defining what is “the foundation of true freedom” IS and always will be debated.
    Hopefully ‘respectfully’.

    Socialism

    Have you not seen what I often post?
    A wise man learns more from his enemies than a fool from his friends.

    Life is really all about a – hopefully – reasoned and responsible ‘cost benefit evaluation’.

    I once offered that… Maybe those ‘Life Flight’ ambulatory services aren’t so life-saving cost beneficial. They are – I believe – but… How many lives are saved because of the time saved getting someone critically injured to a care center VERSES… How many crashes of those helicopters (resultant deaths) have there been? There is a HUGE financial cost associated with operating those units. Might those funds be better used to possibly save more lives? Those helicopters have a large environmental cost / impact. What about those types of considerations – again when compared to how many lives actually saved?

    Even if we all look at the VERY SAME ‘facts’ associated with any thing – like I often say… Folks can witness the very same thing – and yet… Interpret it VERY differently.

    “The socialist agenda is to stop this human activity, by controlling it.”
    That is FAR TOO generalized of a statement.

    You act as if (SOME) conservatives don’t have AND USE the same or very similar ‘tools in the tool box’.

    “Is the trade off worth while?”
    THAT is the million dollar question – and one these hopefully respectful debates need to be focused on.

    Again I think it is very important to state…
    Folks can witness the very same thing and yet interpret it VERY differently.
