Did you see 60 Minutes Sunday night? — Opioid epidemic
Both houses of Congress and President Obama approved a law preventing the Drug Enforcement Agency from investigating and prosecuting the 3 big drug companies that have been flooding communities with opioids.
I’ve written Sen. Merkley asking how this happened. There must be a reason they approved it but I have not heard back yet. It looks like the drug companies brainwashed them that it was a good idea.
Everyone should be aware of this.
From Mother Jones: The David Smith who is CEO of Sinclair Broadcasting owns more TV stations than any other broadcaster in the country, reaching 2 out of ever 5 American homes. If the FCC approves the merger it will reach 72% of homes. They have bought up LOCAL news stations and would broadcast pro-Trump info between local weather reports and local football game scores.
57% of Americans say they watch TV news. 80% get some news from TV and most TRUST Local news commentators.
Sinclair stations broadcast anti-Democrat messages and lots of pro-Trump commentators. They tend to stir up violence at Trump rallies. They tend to lash out at national media outlets for peddling “fake” news. Sinclair Broadcast forces local stations to regularly air commentary by Trump campaign people.
Estimates that there were more than 1 million lost votes because of things like ID laws, long lines at the polls and difficulty registering. Trump won the election by 78,000 combined votes in Michigan, PA and Wisconsin.
White Alabama lawmakers REVOKED Birmingham’s Minimum Wage increase! ($15 passed 2 years ago.) They still make $7.25/hr. The state of Alabama was built on slave labor. A slave tax was a core source of public revenue. They created a Constitution in effect today that establishes White Supremacy. No Black lawmakers voted for the pre-emption bill (overturning Minimum Wage). Councilors voted to raise THEIR pay from $15,000 to $50,000.
