    Patients in agony; addicts dropping dead. It’s business as usual in the War on Some Drugs, says Jacob Sullum.

    The other sided of the story with the opioid epidemic mania, people who genuinely need pain medication and can’t get it because of bureaucratic regulations. My wife was on OxyContin as well as Methadone to relieve her of the pain from cancer and the neuropathy she suffered from. She probably would have had a much shorter life without pain medication.

    Gender perplexed? I’m not so sure. Max may soon be the most popular boy in the locker room. Boys will be boys, as they say, and if Max is a teen-age boy he can’t wait to ‘get lucky’. Such an opportunity! The girls are probably all envious, just not willing to be gender-hopping to get there.

    I wonder what an update in say, 6 months would reveal?

    Ah Hillary. The killer queen-wannabe is showing clear signs of mental deterioration. She has lived in her fantasy world so long that she now would not know reality if it bit her on the tit, like Cleopatra’s asp. And well it may, with a similar result. A guy can hope, right?

    A large part of America’s noisy “power” – its politicians and academicians, its media, its corporate world, its celebrities and “elites” – has been traveling the yellow brick road to unreality for some time. Making the world fit their dreams, expectations, and desires is the goal of their trip.

    But on its way to utopia, it obtained a flat tire – in the form of Trump – and ended up in a very bad accident. Now staggering around, dazed and bleeding, it just keeps repeating the same old phrases it once uttered so proudly. A concussion will do that.

    Schools, corporations, Hillary and friends, feminists, journalists, “you-name-it” have all been cut down by reality – and can’t recognize it or cope with it. Amazon now refuses to acknowledge conservatives, Walmart and Fred Meyer refuse to sell guns, Hillary refuses to accept her career is over, young people throw off their own identity for something they perceive as grander, journalists(?) write the same old words because they have no other copy in their archives, celebrities continue to believe they have clout with a public that no longer believes in them, and SJWs think the truth won’t get to them if they hide in safe spaces.

    Where will we all end up?

    It would be interesting to check the areas that voted for Hillary and see just what they “produce” that goes into the claimed majority of the GDP. How much of it is real things, and how much is electrons that stand for real things manufactured elsewhere. Particularly if you look at the areas she really carried, like Chicago, rather than her claim of carrying Illinois.

    Where will we all end up?
    Hopefully at the end of that yellow-brick road, looking behind the curtain.

    “How much of it is real things, and how much is electrons that stand for real things manufactured elsewhere.”

    Exactly. And she forgets where just about all the food comes from . . .

    When I looked at this video about gender references before, I thought the person on the right was just a punk kid. This time I realized he’s a “professor.” He still looks like an incredibly arrogant and vindictive punk kid to me.

    He still looks like an incredibly arrogant and vindictive punk kid to me.

    The two things aren’t mutually exclusive.

    One of the things I saw while taking my sociology degree were professors who only occasionally visited the real world, and who had never seen their philosophies running in the wild.

    If we survive SJWs, it will really be interesting to watch them after they have children. As my wife used to say to our youngest daughter, “May they have children just like them.”

    My daughter did, and it’s been hilarious.
