With a Federal Government the size of our current apparatus, you don't think they can do both simultaneously? Why does the focus of one government department have to preclude a differing focus by another?

But they are still quite accurate and funny. If you don't like them, don't read them.

What's Sessions doing on opioids?

Answer the above and I have faith you can get it.

So it's a "do as we say, not as we do" type hypocrisy?
Repubs are saying "get over it", but they have no actual interest in doing that themselves...


I remember after the 2012 election whenever somebody on the left mentioned Bush, the rejoinder was a repeated "Bu-bu-bu-bu-BUSH" reply.
But of course, again, the hypocrisy is always there, eh?

See, back in the real world there is a big obvious obfuscation to try to ignore what Trump is doing by fixating on crap that happened multiple years ago.
And if you don't like me pointing that out, don't read my posts...

Who says he has to do anything? It isn't a law enforcement issue, therefore asking the DOJ to get involved seems rather silly.

The difference is that Obama kept blaming Bush for everything for the first term of his presidency, the Obama supporters simply repeated what he was saying.

Now we have Obama supporters trying to give credit for the economy to Obama, even though the economy was stagnate for the 8 years of his administration and didn't take off until about the 2nd or 3rd month of the Trump presidency. It's like Wall Street and business leaders declined to take any chances until the socialist in the WH left and they saw that Trump was serious and rolling back Obama era policies.

It's amusing to talk about opioids not being a "law enforcement issue" in the context of Session's focus on marijuana.
Do you think marijuana is more of or less of "a law enforcement issue" than opioid abuse?

I can go on about the stuff that Trump is blaming Obama on.
But we both know you won't acknowledge it...

The last I checked there a federal laws prohibiting the possession and use of marijuana even though some states have chosen to ignore them. Opioids are still legal.


When Trump is still blaming Obama for the countries ills in his 4th year, the come talk to me.
