Screw the Euro-trash and Wannabes! "Why doom millions to unemployment to please do-gooders who don’t even know what a day’s work is? "

"Climate ChangeIt hasn’t been proved that it’s happening"

Now for a few short stops and high hops in the world of fake news — borrowing from the great Phil Rizzuto.
First, getting high. There’s a huge amount of talk about how the country is sinking into oblivion because of over-prescription of opioids like Percocet. These supposedly lead to the use of heroin and to woozy thinking and bad judgments that lead to crime and death.
Fair enough. We want people to be clear headed and sober.
We want a nation of clear-eyed, straight-shooting men and women who can and will do things intelligently.
Opioids dull the brain and cause unclear thought. So out they go, even if millions of patients need them for intractable pain. Even if they are prescribed by doctors.
