Public Health Notice: ISO

This is insane. 'Iso,' a Deadly New Synthetic Opioid, Has Hit American Streets. If we'd just left heroin legal, we wouldn't be playing this "whack-a-mole" with ever more dangerous drugs.

I get it. Ideally life should be our drug, but somehow we haven't structured our society so that is most people's experience. Some people will throw their lives away. Some will do this with drugs. Let's at least make it legal, make it cheap, and make it as safe as possible.

It's kind of hard to make a difference with someone if he's already dead because of crappy drugs.

Good Intentions, Disastrous Outcomes.

Good Intentions, Disastrous Outcomes.

So I've been thinking and reading and reading and thinking, and letting myself get disgusted and inspired, and hopeful. And there are a lot of thoughts, and I don't know if I'll get to all of them, or if they'll come out in a way that they make a difference, but out they come.

Libertarianism

I spent some time recently with an article called 75 Things White People Can Do for Racial Justice. The 75 things fell roughly into four categories: criminal system reform, "see something, say something," learn/expand your horizons, and make it right.

So this article is a specific view of the how to make it right, starting with how we've made it wrong: it seems to me if we'd been a little more libertarian in our outlook, we might never have built so much of the system that has such an unduly negative effect on the black man.

It's Okay to Hate the Jews

In the United States, it's your Constitutional right. In fact, you are welcome to hate any one you gosh-darned please, for any trivial reason, or no reason at all, and even use the trove of pejoratives we've conjured over the ages: guinea, nigger, spic, towel-head, kike, darkie, hook-nose, gook, honky, injun, chink, peckerwood, paddy, kraut, bender, 'tard, gimp, moron, to name a few.

It's Easier to Grow a Pair Yourself Than to Try to Castrate Everyone Else

I've been inspired to write again by this video. To save you the trouble, it's a rant by a vape store clerk against a patron who happens to be wearing Trump paraphernalia.

Maybe this millenial was just having a bad day, but I'm thinking a part of this was growing up in a bubble wrapped world where he was never actually challenged to challenge his ideas. Instead, someone told him the way it's supposed to be, and he believed it, and when his world view got challenged, he cracked.
