ATTENTION SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS!:…

Question: Is the lacing of heroin with fentanyl: a) actions by “rogue” psychopathic elements within our Federal and local policing communities who wish to scare heroin users off of heroin; b) actions by “rogue” psychopathic elements within our Federal and local policing communities who are intent on profiting from the sale of heroin, and who do not want to leave any witnesses to their drug transactions; c) an attempt by drug “businessmen” to secure a sure and quicker financial gain; d) actions by merely “very dumb businessmen” who are inadvertently killing off their heroin “customers”; e) actions by a new breed of radical Islamic “pistiopathic jihadists (see, pistis!)” who are intent on securing bucks for their “causes”, and who could care less about their “infidel customers”; or f) a combination of all of the above?

Trump won counties impacted the most by opioid addiction! The Penn State found in a study, that Trump over-performed the most in counties with the highest drug, alcohol and suicide mortality rates! West Virginia… where Trump held a rally on August 3, had the highest rate of deaths in 2015! “We are going to solve that problem,” Trump told the crowd. – Heavy.com’s Daniel S. Levine
.
In other words, PHEWTUS supporters… who “HABITUALLY” blame “Liberals” for their mess!… are within areas wherein RAMPANT DRUG USE, AND SUICIDE MORTALITY RATES ARE HIGH! But, what we don’t know, is whether the “victims” of the RAMPANT DRUG USE AND SUICIDE MORTALITY RATES are more conservative, than “liberal”! THAT!… would be an interesting statistic!… AND BEGINNING WITH– AND, SPECIFICALLY WITHIN!– PHEWTUS supporting Districts! And if there are more CONSERVATIVE SUICIDES than “liberal suicides!… and, as SUICIDE MORTALITY RATES may have ZIP– or little!– to do with the RAMPANT DRUG USE within such “conservative districts”!… then one must ask the question: W-H-Y? But first!… we need F-A-C-T-S/ T-R-U-T-H!… H-A-R-D S-C-I-E-N-C-E!

You wonder!… INDEED, AnnoyingMouse! And you’d like the HEAVY HAPLESS to wonder along with you! And, because, that’s ALL you’re able to do! The F-A-C-T is… and as revealed in the comment above you!… is that CONSERVATIVE DISTRICTS are DRUG ADDICTED! And despite my mention of the need to “parse the users” in said Districts, the PROBABILITY of CONSERVATIVE CULPABILITY, I-S M-O-R-E L-I-K-E-L-Y T-H-E C-A-S-E! And so… to LAY BLAME on others– e.g., Liberals!– I-S R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S! It’s time for you… and, your sad buds!… to take some responsibility for Y-O-U-R M-E-S-S!

You know!… AnnoyingMouse!… you remind me of the pic of the three monkeys!… one that sees no truth, one that speaks no truth, and one that hears no truth! You are indeed a soul after MR. PHEWTUS’ ugly heart!… A F-A-K-E!
