TGIF – April 12, 2019.

April 13, 2019

Note to readers:

Sorry this is on Saturday, but as we all know, computers are great when they work, and a pain the arse when they don’t.

Did Dems expose their soft underbelly?

The President floated the idea of busing illegal entrant asylum seekers to sanctuary cities and/or states and Democrats bit like a trout on a big fat worm.

Some, to their credit, backed up their politics and said sure, send them along. Most however, just freaked out.

No matter how you spin it, you heard Dems like Schiff, Pelosi and Schumer saying the equivalent of “not in my backyard.”

Supposedly there is some sort of legal opposition to sending immigrants to specific cities or states.

Yet, that’s already happening. People all over the U.S. tell of waking up and finding an extra dozen or several dozen brand new school kids that apparently arrived overnight.

Meanwhile border cities in the U.S. are complaining that they just can’t absorb any more “asylum seekers.”

The question now is, was this just a troll, or will President Trump do what he threatened?

It remains to be seen, but the more Dems bitch about it, the more likely it is to happen.

Another immigration question yet unanswered.

How many times have you read about someone committing a crime and you see the words so-and-so has been deported X times?

That’s yet another reason for sealing the open border and forcing people to enter through the ports of entry, although it isn’t clear whether all of these people jump the border or are missed when coming though the ports.

The bigger question is, what can we do to stop it, period?

Hopefully that’s something we can work on after the election.

FDA finally agrees to study  opioid rules. 

On April 9, the FDA finally admitted that there is no one-size-fits-all opioid dosing policy, and that sudden withdrawal or too low maintenance dosages for terminal or chronic pain patients who  “… are physically dependent on opioid pain medicines suddenly having these medicines discontinued or the dose rapidly decreased. These include serious withdrawal symptoms, uncontrolled pain, psychological distress, and suicide.”

It’s only taken them three years to acknowledge the problem.

The FDA is now collecting reports from patients, families and doctors so they can “further study” the issue. To  report something, the FDA release includes this information…

“To help FDA track safety issues with medicines, we urge patients and health care professionals to report side effects involving opioids or other medicines to the FDA MedWatch program, using the information in the “Contact FDA” box at the bottom of the page.”

This is the contact info:
