I don’t like Fox News. However, one day I was in the Police Station where I work and Fox News Channel was on. So I had to watch. The program featured “No Good Newt” Gingrich defending and promoting the Republican Party on the grounds that it protects US borders from MS 13, fentanyl and opioids. What a scam! Ok, if that’s the way the Republican Party is going to defend and promote itself from its crimes against humanity, putting toddler refugees from Central America in cages, then it’s simply just unbelievably indefensible spin.
First, let me just say that the International Criminal Court should arrest Donald Trump including key members administration for the heinous crimes they are perpetrating against immigrants. Primarily though, I want to point out that the opioid crisis in this country is mostly because Big Pharma was over prescribing them. Big Pharma and corrupt legislators got the country in this mess, and the addicted public are only looking for cheaper alternatives to prescribed opiates.
Why doesn’t our hypocritical government legalize marijuana and have our doctors prescribed it for pain, it has been proven to save lives and can save some people from the danger of addiction to stronger drugs. Canada, our biggest trading partner, legalized marijuana following the example of Colorado and other US states. Why shouldn’t the US legalize marijuana nationwide and stop this suffering?
Opioids are heavily addictive and can cause serious problems including destroying your organs and of course the risk of death by overdose. Opioid prescriptions, managed in a sane healthcare system, can help many patients and/or addicted persons avoid these problems linked to opioid consumption. It’s a no brainer and many countries have done so. But as usual in America, the liars and con artists at the top are busy destroying our lives while making billions.
So Newt, if some gang named MS13 wants to get in they’ll get in, in fact they were born here. A Wall or stricter border patrol won’t stop them. They will get a ladder, a boat, a plane ticket, dig a tunnel, build a micro sub, or conceal themselves in a truck. Whatever it takes! What the Republicans are doing is only catering to their base and stirring up racial prejudices by abusing the poorest of refugees, mostly women and children. What a crime! So you tell me, Newt. Who are the real criminals here? Get out there and vote Americans!
