Counterfeit pill arrest made near Kingman – How wonderful for the seizure of 6,000 fentanyl-laced oxycodone pills during a traffic stop. That translates to 6,000 lives potentially saved. I wish it meant 6,000 people now in rehab knowing their lives may have been spared.
After three years of drought, people complain about the flooding? Why?
No more millionaires in Congress – Around 8% of adults in the U.S. are millionaires but over 50% of members of Congress are. They don’t represent the working and middle class. How could they? They have no idea what it’s like to be worried about the bare essentials.
Speeding rant – People driving 60 mph to 85 mph in Kingman? Awesome. I wish could find even a consistent 40 mph in Kingman. If it really isn’t exaggeration, tell us what time you drive so we can get errands done without navigating through the many people apparently sleeping at the wheel.
William Ressegue community view: Mitch McConnell is failing all conservative Republicans – I’m no fan of McConnell but we Republicans should quit whining about stolen elections two years ago and start pushing policies that will solve America’s problems.
UN, US buying big Ukraine grain shipment for hungry regions – From what I have seen there aren’t a lot of ways to make a living in most of those drought areas. As world famous philosopher Sam Kinison once counseled people in drought areas, “Move to where the food is.”
Tom Ciardullo Community View: Step back, take a deep breath and calm down – This letter seems to place all blame on “one person.” That person undoubtedly should share the blame. But let’s not forget that “one person” has been attacked continuously for four-plus years by one party with nothing coming from multiple attacks.
Fentanyl: Mass killer on the loose – Most, if not all, of these Fentanyl deaths could be avoided if people would buy all their prescription drugs from a pharmacy with a doctor’s prescription and their OTC drugs from a reputable store or pharmacy.
Student debt relief – Quit giving handouts. White House wants to hire 87,000 new IRS agents. Let them hire college graduates with student loans and offer them $10,000 student debt relief if they work for the IRS for a year.
