Stoned driving…

leave a comment »

Who knew?  Driving while stoned out of your mind is just  as dangerous as driving when you’re drunk.   The geniuses who run the state of Washington,  and who approved the legalization of pot,  seem astonished by this news.   Did they not remember what happened in the 60’s and 70’s when all the potheads and hippies were on the road?   Were they too stoned themselves to remember,  or are they just too stupid now to grasp it?

World-class jerk…

leave a comment »

Remember Martin Shkreli,  the pharmaceutical CEO who jacked up the price of a drug used to treat infections in HIV patients?  He was called to testify before Congress,  and did an excellent job  of cementing  his well-earned reputation as a world-class jerk.   I can’t imagine his performance will help him in his trial for fraud charges relating to the hedge fund he managed.

Captagon driving jihad?

leave a comment »

I very much doubt it is the  driving force  behind radical Islam,  but I’m quite sure it is helpful to the jihadists.

Mexican drug cartels…

leave a comment »

This is an  interesting look at Mexican drug cartels,  even though it contradicts some earlier information by officials.   Why does it matter to you?   Because the jihadists are already in contact with the cartels for the purpose of moving men and materials across our southern border.   You know,  the one which His Oneness assures us has never been more secure.

Chip off the old block…

Or Barry,  in this case,  since Marion Christopher Barry is not only running for  his late father’s city council seat,  but exhibiting the same sort of behavior his father was famous for.   He is certainly doing a fine job of  carrying on the torch in his father’s legacy.

Glamour junkies…

leave a comment »

It is not correct to claim that no one makes the choice to become a junkie.   Quite a few people do,  and most of them make other bad choices as well,  for an assortment  of reasons,  as Kevin Williamson points out.   I have long thought that classifying anything as a disease is dangerous,  because it removes the consequences of personal choice from the equation.

If someone is truly addicted,  either physically or psychologically,  you can put them next to their particular demon along with a mean-looking man with a gun to  their head who can convince them that if they reach for it they die   Very few will reach for their demon.  I’ve known Army sergeants who made people quite smoking by simple pressure.  Only a small percentage of the population actually suffers from an addictive personality,  so draw your own conclusions.
