NTSB recommends lowering blood alcohol level that constitutes drunken driving
Tue May 14, 2013
Notice the article states the 'risk' goes down, not necessarily the rate. I don't want drunk drivers on the road any more than the next person. But when we start making relatively responsible adults into criminals who are not, we start eroding freedom. Many people, stone sober, have varying driving …
Fiscal cliff deal includes at least $67.9 billion for special interests
Fri Jan 4, 2013
Political stripe doesn't matter. Legislators should have to justify the merits of their spending. We need a Scope and Object Rule in Congress. If any of the content doesn't fallunder the scope and object of the bill title, it cannot be part of the bill. That would stop pork spending in its tracks, a …
Prescription painkiller overdoses surpass 'street' drugs
Mon Dec 31, 2012
This is not someone else's problem, but the media is making it out to be a larger - and more "legitimate" problem than it actually is. I have depended upon prescription painkillers for many years (without the Acetaminophen, thank you very much). I have not requested an increase in dosage in several …
Motorcycle deaths stay at same level despite overall safer roads
Tue May 22, 2012
I don't always wear a helmet. I believe anyone over 21 should have the choice, but I'll stay away from that argument. I'll wear one all the time when I find one that will keep me from being drenched in my own sweat, dripping in my eyes and becoming a higher threat to safety than not wearing a helmet …
How Florida brothers' 'pill mill' operation fueled painkiller abuse epidemic
Mon May 7, 2012
Please qualify that. It is a HUGE problem WHEN ABUSED. Many out here do not abuse these drugs; they are our lifeline to mitigating chronic pain. Please don't lump me in with addicts. Also, the further underground we drive it, the worse the problem will get, and the more money the criminal element wi …
Opinion: It's time to hold doctors accountable for painkiller abuse
Tue Apr 10, 2012
I'm really sorry about those who find themselves in the grip of addiction. But please don't speak for all of us who take pain medications so we can live as close to a normal life as possible without having to think about our constant pain all day long. It's sad there are folks whose weakness allows …
U.S. drug war has met none of its goals
Thu May 13, 2010
Napolitano says, "This is something that is worth fighting for because drug addiction is about fighting for somebody's life, a young child's life, a teenager's life, their ability to be a successful and productive adult." I say, Bulls**t! If you want to save lives, take drug farming, manufacturing …
