Prescription Pain-Killers: "Far Riskier" Than Gun Ownership





One of the most beat to death gun control arguments is “Your odds of dying go WAY higher if you have a gun in the home! No one should own guns, guns are deadly!” Now replace the word “gun” with “opioid-based painkillers” – yes, I mean the Percocets, Vicodins, Oxycontins, and all the others. Now your argument is somewhere between 5 and 107 times as pertinent, depending on the classification of suicide, and addiction/accessibility.

Lifelong-Liberal Rants "This Is Why I'm Leaving The Democratic Party"





"In essence, Hillary Clinton and the DNC each wants us to believe that lobbyists and SuperPACs don’t expect anything from them in return for their money. This is the most basic, foolish, offensive lie they could ever tell. Of course they want something in return. That’s the business they’re in...The thing is, though, the Democratic Party isn’t really very democratic. It’s sincerely just a machine for Hillary Clinton."

The World's Cheapest (& Most Expensive) Places To Sin





While Draghi and his co-conspirators hammer the deflation ogre in Sendai, there is some good news for those who partake of 'sin'. Broadly speaking the cost of beer-and-cigarettes (what Deutsche Bank defines as 'sin') has dropped notably over the past two years with prices in Moscow and Stockholm plunging the most (while Madrid and Mumbai have risen the most). However, those looking for the cheapest way to maintain their bad habits should head to Manila in the Philippines (and avoid Melbourne, Australia).

WTF Headline Of The Day: GOP Senator Says "US Is Under-Incarcerated," Should Lock Up More People





There are 2.3 million Americans in prison or jail. The U.S. has 5 percent of the world’s population but 25 percent of its prisoners. One in three black men can expect to spend time in prison. There are 2.7 million minors with an incarcerated parent. The imprisonment rate has grown by more than 400 percent since 1970, and that increased incarceration has had a very limited effect on crime over the past two and a half decades. So... with that in mind, here is a little more crazy to end the week from Senator Tom Cotton...

Former Hedgeye And Business Insider Employee Arrested For Robbing Three Banks





The last time we heard the name Vincent Veneziani was several years ago, when he was at Business Insider, a close friend with all of Henry Blodget's editors and writers, writing stories about Wall Street criminals and frauds. The inherent irony here will become evident in a few moments...

Middle Class Destitution – A Devastating Tale From America's Heartland





"We're becoming like a third-world country. This is how it feels to be sold out by your country. We’re going to have nothing left but fast food... Fast food and hedge funds. That's where we're going."

Guest Post: The Stunning Parallels Between The United States And Nazi Germany





Most Americans may not like to hear this, but the truth is that modern day America very closely resembles Nazi Germany. Most Americans were raised to deeply love this country; but likewise, most citizens of this nation know that something has gone deeply wrong, and we suggest that just like the Nazis, all of the pageantry and beauty in our society masks an evil which has grown to a level that is almost unspeakable. The truth is that all evil regimes eventually fall, and America is headed for a day of reckoning... And just like Nazi Germany, our end will be exceedingly terrible.

FBI Agents Busted For Planting Hidden Surveillance Microphones In Public Places





"Hidden microphones that are part of a clandestine government surveillance program that has been operating around the Bay Area has been exposed." If Congress wasn’t so busy being corrupt shills for the powerful it might do something to stop this. We're not holding our breath. Time and time again throughout U.S. history, you see the FBI working to undermine the public’s freedom in order to protect whatever racket their status quo masters happen to be running at the time.

Is Homeland Security Creating Travel Havoc To Force People Into Precheck Programs?





The TSA and Homeland must have known that wait times would soar if more rigorous screening was implemented. They did it anyway. As AP reports, in the past three years, the TSA and Congress cut the number of front-line screeners by 4,622 — or about 10 percent — on expectations that an expedited screening program called PreCheck would speed up the lines. However, not enough people enrolled for TSA to realize the anticipated efficiencies. In other words, PreCheck has been in a failure. Not enough Americans have been willing to make themselves “known” to FedGov and Homeland Security. The way to fix it is to make people so miserable that they join.

Anti-Trump Republicans Court Mark Cuban To Run As Third Party Candidate





"I think the time is right for a technology literate entrepreneur to run for president," he said. "Someone who has had to grind to achieve success and can relate as well to those that follow Bernie as those that think the system is broken and follow Trump. The issue for any such candidate is that the process is broken. It's a circus rather than a learning process for all involved."

Homeland Security To Conduct Fake "Bioterrorism" Subway Terror Attack In New York City





Following 'Jade Helm' last summer, 2016 appears to have seen an escalation in social unrest and domestic terrorisim threat reaction among America's authorities. FEME undertaking domestic riot training in the south last month, battle-tanks rolling through Houston last week, and now the Department of Homeland Security plans a bioterrorism attack drill next in the NYC Subway.

Is This The Ultimate Act Of A Frantic Establishment Willing To Do Anything To Stop Trump?





As Donald Trump inches closer to the Republican nomination, GOP insiders scramble to put a halt to the billionaire’s run for the White House. A new lawsuit filed in the state of California could prove to be the ultimate act of desperation by a frantic establishment willing to go to any lengths to end Trump’s bid for the Oval Office. However, if the allegations contained within the court documents are found to be true, they would not only spell the end of Trump’s presidential aspirations, but most likely his brand as a whole.
