In today’s issue: Savage addressed the opioid epidemic, asserting throwing more money at the growing problem won’t solve it.
“When you live in a culture that promotes drugs, sex and rock and roll, what do you expect but STDs and heroin addiction?” he asked.
“Well, what do you expect is going to happen when Hollywood lives off peddling drugs and peddling rampant sexuality? You expect children to grow up sane?”
You expect little children 4 years old, who have no idea what sex is to know what their sexual identity is?
And yet you have psychopaths saying, “Oh, we have a camp now, the rainbow day camp, for transgender children as young as 4.”
To me it’s child abuse.
But the bigger question is the opioid epidemic. How would you solve the opioid epidemic?
Should Trump declare a national emergency?
Should billions more be given for treatment?
No, no, no. Not from my point of view. Treatment’s a ploy.
Maybe it works for a little while. But, basically, it’s a vacation for junkies.
I don’t know. I don’t like watching these shows like “Intervention.”
I find drug addict, alcoholics to be the most self-indulgent people on the planet.
Always belly-aching and crying about their life and saying that’s why they use the drugs. Who cares?
So, what is the solution? That’s a problem.
Gov. Christie says we need more money for drug treatment:
“We’ve gotten really good response from the White House and, quite frankly, from the public, in terms of our recommendations. And I’m confident that the president will accept the recommendations of this commission. The fact is it is a national health emergency. According to the CDC, 142 people a day are dying in America of drug overdoses. This means that we have a 9/11 scale loss of life every three weeks. If that’s not a national health emergency, I don’t know what is. “
… All right, so they want more money. Always the answer is more money.
Well, I’m not so sure that’s the answer.
You could go to the source of the drugs, couldn’t you? Like, who’s making the fentanyl? Who’s making fentanyl into the elephant tranquilizer that’s killing people?
Do you know that cops are getting sick and almost overdosing as they arrest these drug dealers because these drugs are so powerful? I don’t know if you know what’s going on.
They’re afraid to even touch the stuff, because if it gets on their clothing, they could get sick from it.
Who’s making this stuff? Where is it coming from?
