    Surprised this hasn’t had more coverage, doctor in the UK likely to have murdered 450-650 people with heroin.

      Is this from Facebook? The story lacks rigour and is apparently what happened on one person’s shitty.
      day.

        Sorry, I see it was from Facebook – poor lighting earlier. The story has that “Facebook” feel to it, bit sorry to see you picking up stories from there.

      Which line did the African Americans and Asian Americans stand in? Line A or Line B?

    House Judiciary Committee approved for the first time a resolution Tuesday demanding that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein turn over all requested documents regarding the FBI’s handling of the Russia investigation during the presidential election after seven days or face possible impeachment or contempt.

    Should make Thursday’s appearance of Wray and Rosenstein before the House Judiciary Committee interesting

      Well that is good news especially for the NRA. Nearly 7000 gun deaths so far this year as we approach the half way mark. 320 children from 0-11 have been killed or injured, sounds like they are packing a pre school. Adds a new dimension to cowboys and Indians.

      22000 annual suicides not included in these figures.

        Isn’t that about 1/3 of the numbers killed in Mexico since the start of the year?

          Maybe, but that doesn’t do anything for the victims in the US. Another example of defection, look what happening over there.

            Any idea how you go about disarming the citizen and criminals of their guns? More guns than people or close to it.

    Looks like Mueller’s poised to reveal conclusions – and potential indictments – related to collusion between trump, his mafiosi, and his shadowy Russian backers. Announcements are in the wind for October.

    No wonder that trump has ramped up his alternative reality show.

    Follow the money is all I’ll say.
