To The Daily Sun,
Eric T. Rottenecker hit it out of the park in his Dec. 9 letter. Finally, we're hearing from another person who actually gets how easily manipulated the general public is by our "leaders." Union jobs used to be needed to protect low wage workers from abuse and dangerous working conditions. Now it is a pyramid scheme run by a cartel of power-thirsty cronies who continue to shape public perspective in their favor to forever insure the money keeps on mainlining from the middle-class right into their pockets.
It's virtually laughable now that there is a big push to fund the heroin epidemic now, rushing tens of millions of more taxpayer dollars into their accounts for them to spend on pretty much everything except practical methods to curb this disturbing trend.
Two points on the heroin epidemic: Is it just a coincidence that its boom coincided with the crash of the economy? Kids cannot even afford a bag of weed for $60 anymore, but they stock up on heroin for $10. Politician thinking, "Make marijuana legal?" Whoa, slow down. That is a gateway drug my friend, there will be chaos in the street.
But a heroin outbreak would mean we could keep our $2 billion that we use (laugh) to battle pot and suck another $2 billion out of the middle class for another "war" that we need to fight. Eureka!!" Clearly it's all about the money for them. There is no solid argument for justifying why alcohol and cigarettes are legal while marijuana is not. Kudos to Mr. Rottenecker for knowing his history.
Secondly, I have to laugh when I hear this Good Samaritan law. I understand that they want to curb heroin deaths. I get it, the law itself seems good in its intent. My problem is with the title. Do politicians really even know what a Good Samaritan is? So some 20-year-old kid can take a 17-year-old out, buy some heroin with money he stole from his parents, go back to his room and give it to the younger kid and get high also. Then when the 17-year-old starts to overdose, he can call for help. When the police arrive they help the overdose victim while the other kid can be sitting on a pile of heroin and not get charged, oh and he's a good Samaritan?
What? I'm sorry, but I thought helping an elderly person across the street or giving the Heimlich maneuver to a choking victim made you a good Samaritan. Going into a lair of filth and buying a drug that will kill you then distributing it does not make you a good Samaritan. This much I'm pretty sure of.
