    Opioid prescription drug deaths dwarf shooting deaths, yet there’s no call to ban Big Pharma

    http://govtslaves.info/2017/10/opioi...an-big-pharma/

    Americans continue to mourn the dozens of people who were killed and hundreds wounded by a crazed lunatic in Las Vegas on Sunday, and as is usually the case when guns are involved in a mass murder incident, the usual suspects are once more calling for gun bans.

    “Nowhere but America do horrific large-scale mass shootings happen with this degree of regularity,” said U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn. “Last night’s massacre may go down as the deadliest in our nation’s history, but already this year there have been more mass shootings than days in the year.”

    “This must stop,” he continued. “It is positively infuriating that my colleagues in Congress are so afraid of the gun industry that they pretend there aren’t public policy responses to this epidemic. There are, and the thoughts and prayers of politicians are cruelly hollow if they are paired with continued legislative indifference. It’s time for Congress to get off its *** and do something.”

    Of course, to Democrats, the only ‘appropriate’ “public policy response” is to ban something — unwanted speech, guns, Trump supporters, and now, most likely, country music festivals in Vegas.

    But isn’t it curious that in the face of a real epidemic that has killed more people than guns ever could — the opioid epidemic — none of these would-be authoritarians are calling for any bans on Big Pharma.

    Default Las Vegas and Dallas Have Something in Common

    AS a small boy, my dad's friend Elmo Pyle owned a Mercury Dealership, he was also a Gardena Sheriff. He lived next to the old speedway named Carroll. His house was at the police pistol range. When we visited Elmo, I would dig in the mounds behind the targets and get lead bullets. I probably collected a hundred. Never was one shaped like a bullet. They usually, were pretty smashed up.

    So, in 1963, while I was "Studying" at Orange Coast College, John F. Kennedy was shot and killed. My first reaction, how could this possibly happen as the president has all kinds of body guards. But a little later, the "AUTHORITIES" explained how the bullet went through Kennedy's skull (Small entry wound, massive exit wound), then the bullet traveled through Governor Conley's arm (Breaking his arm). And when they got to the hospital, they found "THE BULLET" laying next to the dead President (On his gurney where he died).

    An amazing bullet went in a skull, came out a skull and went through the governor's arm, then jumped out of the Lincoln Continental, and landed on the gurney that carried the dead President. And it was in such good condition they could tell that day it came from Lee Harvey Oswald's gun.

    Oswald was probably lucky to make $60 a week, and he'd been to an iron curtail country three times in the last two-three years?

    This Paddock "DUDE" made money gambling? Ted May used to make money betting on horses. But, his girl friend worked for the "Wire Service" and she'd call him when the "fix was in". Ted, also took us young guys to the track with him to help him cash in his winning tickets. In those days, they only reported winnings over $5,000 to the IRS.

    So Paddock gambles at a casino with 2,000 security cameras and no one sees anything "Suspicious" on the 32 floor?

    He is seen gambling a hundred thousand a day???

    Las Vegas is a "PARTY TOWN" and always has been. My aunt worked at the Hilton International until she died. She loved the shows and probably would have worked for free, just to see the shows. I got up to see Elvis and time or two, sat on the front row. One year Elvis had the most sell outs, 58 shows, total attendance, 130,157. Or 2,244 people per show.

    I saw George Strait last month, 22,000 in attendance. This country singer had 22,000 people. I don't know what we paid for tickets, to to see Fleetwood Mac, I paid $700 for two tickets. Let's just say the average ticket was $100. That is $2.2 million per concert.

    Vegas doesn't want to scare off any customers.

    This guy's girl friend goes to Hong Kong for three days then to the Philippines. He wires here $100 GRAND.

    FIRST IT IS REPORTED SHE HAS A HUSBAND/BOY FRIEND WHO IS A MUSLIM. THEN, THAT REPORT DISAPPEARS!

    Then, the police change the "TIME LINE" they so carefully spelled out. First they say the security guard was shot in the knee. Then, they say he was shot dead. There is a difference.

    In the past, if ISIS has claimed responsibility, they have been correct. They have claimed responsibility three time is the Las Vegas Massacre. Some what like Wikileaks. Wikileaks has not been incorrect or had any "Fake News" on any report.

    There is more to know about the Las Vegas Massacre.

    Default Jimbo and His 45 Caliber Pistol

    Jimbo has a pretty crippled right arm from his 1985 boat racing accident. When Gary Lewis owned the Ford, Chevy, GMC and Cadillac dealership in Needles (Pre internet). Jimbo would sometime deliver new cars, frequently Cadillacs to Utah, Wyoming and Montana. His wife, Cathy would follow.

    At least twice at motels/hotels , Jimbo said, "He'd get out of his Cad he was driving, look up the stairwell and see two guys looking like they were up to no good." Jimbo, carries a loaded 45 in his belt, behind his back. He said, "He'd put his suit case down, and reach behind his back and cock the 45." He figured if they weren't "BAD GUYS" nothing would happen, if they were "BAD GUYS", they'd know the sound of someone cocking a 45 and they'd run like hell. At least twice, the guys ran like hell.

    When we went to Jack Leeks Memorial Service, Jimbo, see this gun on the floor. If we get stopped and get and we get any kind of a ticket, I'll pay all expenses, but this gun is going to sit right here.

    Jimbo has travel one end of this country to the other. He is a very good student of fire arms.

    Side note: Jimbo believes God has a sense of humor. He says, "I walk 250 yards, set up my target, put rocks around it, walk back, sight in my rifle, and the winds blows my target over. I walk back 250 yards again, set up the target....walk back 250 years...." Jimbo thinks God has a sense of humor or just doen't like Jimbo!

    yes opioid abuse is big
    whats missing to help control is central prescription register but doctors have voted against it over and over.
    I'll bet lots of those drug deaths are 2 legal prescriptions from 2 different doctors of drugs that cant be taken together.
    Thanks lehre thanked for this post

    You are right about that Powerabout, and that is something that needs to be addressed. It has been going on for a long time, and no one has moved to fix this problem until trump came along. In addition there have been lots of drug factories in Florida making the the drugs cheap and selling to wholesalers. Seems I heard Florida was starting to crack down upon this. Finally, many if not most of these opioids are coming in from our southern border. Lots of interdictions there and also quite a few from submarines on the west coast...a few from the east coast. But only a very small percentage is discovered, and the kingpins use poor people with cars and trucks bought at auction to transport the drugs. That's why we need the wall. Mexico and some central American countries are controlled by crime families worse than anything ever from New York City or Chicago. And the liquor, narcotics, prostitution, bookmaking, extortion, gambling and other crimes never came close to the death on both sides of the border and crime and death among our own youth.

    As reported by Natural News founder/editor Mike Adams, the Health Ranger:

    According to federal statistics, legal opioid prescription drugs killed 33,091 Americans in 2015 alone. Estimates put those numbers above 36,000 deaths for 2017.

    The death toll at the Las Vegas Mandalay massacre was 59 (so far). Though a horrifying tragedy, opioid drugs alone are killing 560 times more people each year than died in the Vegas tragedy.

    This means that opioid drugs alone are causing the near-equivalent of two Las Vegas massacres PER DAY in terms of the number killed.

    That’s obscene. It’s criminal. But there are currently no calls at all to ban this highly dangerous, highly lethal class of drugs. Could it be because Big Pharma is such a big contributor to political campaigns?

    According to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks industry donations to political parties and candidates, Big Pharma contributed nearly $60 million in 2016 alone. In the 2014 election cycle, the figure was nearly $30 million, and in 2012 — a presidential year — donations were nearly $50 million. So in just three election cycles, Big Pharma contributed somewhere in the neighborhood of $140 million to political action committees, individual politicians and other political organizations. It’s no wonder everyone on Capitol Hill is going soft on opioids.

    Follow the Money !

    big pharma killing off idiots is partly self inflicted.

    Me minding my own business and the idiot above tries to kill me as he can get all the specific equipment necessary to mass kill innocent people is a whole other story thats why its get so much more attention.
    That "legal" equipment has no other use than to mass kill humans.

    Well, while you guys worry about them taking away your guns (which won't happen), I worry about them taking away my cheap opiods!!

    Nope, not an abuser, never had occasion to use them until last year, when out of the blue I came down with a horrible case of bursitis in my left shoulder (I think it was bursitis; a bunch of x-rays were inconclusive). Worst pain I ever had by far, unremittingly excruciating. Went to the doc, got the x-rays, he prescribed hydrocodone, an opiate. Took it for five or six days, as prescribed or a little more. Had absolutely no effect on the pain (or on my driving or anything else. Went back to the doc and said, "I have a .38 in the car and I cannot live this way." His office is next to a hospital. He says, "Well you could go into the ER and tell them your left arm hurts, don't tell them you think it's a shoulder joint, just say it's the left arm and they'll wonder if it's a heart attack and they'll get right on it." Alternatively he wrote out another prescription, this one for oxycodone (not OxyContin), another opiate. I went out and sat in the car, considering what to do. Decided to give the oxycodone a try so I drove to the pharmacy instead of the ER. That oxycodone worked like a champ, oh man what a relief!! And cheap! Cut the pain down to manageable. All this time I'm icing the shoulder three or four times a day, my usual fix for joint issues, and evidently this just needed time to work. After several days of oxycodone and ice, the problem began to subside. I started cutting back on the oxycodone, and eventually the shoulder self-repair process progressed enough that I could quit entirely (I'd rather not take ANY sort of drug if I don't absolutely have to). Anyway, had no withdrawl issues at all with this stuff. A nurse told me that if the drug has an actual physical problem to work on, it generally is not addictive, just don't keep taking it after the problem subsides.

    Plus I'm guessing that with the leftover hydrocodone and oxycodone and a couple other old leftovers in the medicine cabinet, I must have a few hundred bucks in street cash value, LOL.

    So I'm hoping there's no change in the regs on this stuff. Why should normal people pay more and have to jump through hoops to get ordinary meds just because a lot of low-life tweakers want to pickle their brains? If they can't get the prescription opiates, they'll just find something else as they always do.

    Why worry about legal drugs ?

    because here in Bradenton Florida and a lot of other places in America they the low life's go to the big pharma kick back pill pusher Doctors
    and get their free legal drugs,
    when they overdose which most do and if it doesn't kill them, we all, the taxpayers take it up the *** on Medicaid spending and Taxes to pay for it all.

    Then it drives up the cost of healthcare again for the rest of us based on supply and demand and use of the healthcare services, so big pharma extreme CEO profits keep rolling along not to mention
    an inhumane way for the corporate drug pushers to make obscene profits off the backs of innocent and
    responsible society !

    It's more than about You, it's about us too !

    I am of the opinion that it's all a corporate criminal racket by design,plain and simple !

    Smitty, I have a neighbor, Korean War veteran and an ex-Boston cop (tough guy), who was having terrible back pain. An ambulance came to get him one day, along with a fire truck. I called him a couple days later to see how things went. He said, "You won't believe it. As they rolled me out on a gurney, I said, 'The pain is so bad, sometimes I feel like blowing my brains out,' and they took it literally, put me on a suicide watch, and had my wife give my guns to my daughter. I'm going to get my guns back, but, damn, be careful what you tell those people!"
