    Unfortunately, guns are his answer to everything, or do you remember what he said after the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting?

    More guns in schools/churches/synagogues/mosques/etc. seems to be his answer. :(

    Anyway, they don't seem to want his sympathy

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...WELCOME-visit-synagogue-11-people-killed.html

    '... You yourself called the murderer evil, but yesterday’s violence is the direct culmination of your influence.’

    Trump is accused by the group of ‘deliberately undermin[ing] the safety of people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities.

    ‘Yesterday’s massacre is not the first act of terror you incited against a minority group in our country,’ the letter read.

    ‘President Trump, you are not welcome in Pittsburgh until you stop targeting and endangering all minorities.’ ...


    ... The group noted that the gunman, Robert Bowers, was angry at the Jewish community because of the work of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, a Jewish nonprofit that helps resettle migrants and refugees ...


    ... Trump and the Republican Party have been accused of spreading anti-Semitic conspiracy theories which blame Hungarian-born financier George Soros for the migrant caravan currently making its way through Mexico...

    He's campaigning again. What he loves most. Applauding himself up onto the stage to speak. To say whatever gets him applause. If the audience changes, he'll say the opposite. Can't afford to upset the NRA right now.

    He's supposed to be not a politician. But he's the worst of the worst at playing up the public and riding the wave. No personal ethos whatsoever. Imo

    Goodnight

    Don't you mean Pittsburgh? There's only one Pittsburgh with an "h" on the end, but at least two without it (I believe.)

    I apologize for correcting you here, but I had to learn how to spell the city because I spent the first 10 1/2 years of my life there (the city with the "unusual" spelling".)

    Anyway, Drumpf is almost as divisive as Abraham Lincoln was in his time, if not moreso imho.

    Lincoln caused a civil war. And he didn't have a nuclear button.

    America was an isolated nation in those days, without the weight to affect the rest the planet. The divisive effects of your president's decisions and actions are not limited to the US.

    The fact that medical painkiller drugs can be abused does not mean they should not be made available for patients who need them, imo

    Fentanyl is easy enough to overdose on - just a little too much and the user is dead. How much more potent do these pain killers really need to be ?

    I see your point. The patient can only absorb so much anyway. But I don't know. A doctor might answer that.

    The point stands though. The fact medical drugs can be abused should not prevent patients in pain from benefitting from them.

    Possibly patients develop tolerance and need higher doses. Would they develop stronger pain drugs if there was no medical need?

    They should prove first that it benefits the patient over existing drugs (and not just the manufacturer). Opiod manufacturerers are a part of the opiod crisis.

    Jefferson Sessions has resigned under duress by Drumpf (from what I understand.)

    I guess that it started after Sessions recused himself from the Russia investigation, culminating with the refusal to end (or curtail) the Mueller investigation. The AG pro tem is more of a Drumpf "yes man" (again, from what I understand...)

    Manafort is hoping for a pardon (he's gonna need it!)


    See everyone under the table with the ubiquitous :kitty: delegation.

    Drumpf's disapproval rating is at ~60% here in the US! Has another president ever been so poorly rated?

    Oh, and he claims that the tear gas used was "very safe". I wish that I was kidding!

    I'll be over with the :kitty: delegation...
