Starting to understand why red states might be voting against Medicaid and SSI

I've in the middle of reading books about the OxyContin and heroin addiction problems in the U.S.. I have a morbid fascination with these subjects, don't know anyone personally who has abused those drugs. I never have.

Anyway, the book "Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opioid Epidemic" which describes entire areas decimated by these addictions and aided in part, unfortunately, by abuse of Medicaid and SSI, gave me a new way of looking at things.

Really eye-opening. If the problem this book talks about is truly THIS widespread in red states, it shines a new light on why some red staters vote the way they do. And it also makes me really afraid for the future of our nation.

Worth the time to read the book, if you are looking for a book to read.

Plus I know my kitty is a Democrat because he is kind and loving and always does his best to make

The world a better place, everywhere he goes.

Because I was six years old

And it was my brother and when my mother found out she whipped me and called me a whore and asked me if I "liked it."

It went on for years. I knew I was on my own.

And then all the other crap, over all the years. Same shit different day. Just kept my head down and survived.

But if anyone knew what was inside of me...the anger is like the molten core at Chernobyl....if I ever lost control of it it might destroy the world.

Don't forget, Rush Limbaugh is forced on the troops overseas on AFRN - the leadership feels it's

Edifying for the soldiers, leads them in the right direction, etc. and it's not like rape is a problem in the military or anything.....

Very upsetting and worrisome. You know this will become the next big thing for the RWNJ now -

Making rape legal and normal.

How low can these creeps go?

The right wingers will "ditto" this for sure. "Yeah, why is consent such a big deal? It shouldn't matter....I'm a man, I should be able to rape when I want to...."

This election season is really triggering me. And many others, I'm sure.

God I feel like I need to burn a huge sage smudge stick to rid our nation of all the bad spirits or something.

Yes!!!! I've needed to hear good news and this makes my day/week!

Yeah, sure. Give me a placebo instead of my Copaxone

Or give a diabetic a placebo instead of insulin and see how well that all works out. Or the people who have to take meds in order to not reject a transplanted organ.

But sure, yeah, all drugs are bad.

Anybody ever wonder (I do) if the move towards demonizing modern medicine is a ploy by the supe rich to wean us off that expensive modern medicine so they can pay us less and drive down our cost of living? And hey, a bonus, some people will die in the process, driving down the population of "useless eaters" (Kissinger quote.)

Just saw something on Chris Hayes, talking about how RWNJ see Russia as last defender

Of traditional family values. Of white traditional Xtian families.

I googled the phrase, saw Washington Times (RWNJ rag) article about how Russia is our last hope to restore the US to a godly country, etc.

I am certain there is a collaboration between the Russians now and Trump/alt-right/Xtian fundamentalist factions.

These f*ckers would be GLAD to turn the US over to Putin if it meant they could return us to their idea of the 1950s.

They are losing the culture wars, are backed in a corner and dangerous. God help us if their plan succeeds.

I have this odd feeling that during the debates,

Trump will just fling his poo. He's just about descended to that level already.
