The face of addiction has changed

June 14, 2019

To the editor: Should there be an apology for the 1994 crime bill? Perhaps the question should be “Should there be an apology for introducing a crime bill in a country with such a racist white......

I am only guessing now : OurDeadOne has a cage full of 100 monkeys taught to punch keyboards at random. . Now and then they produce what can be pieced together to make a sort of readable ( NOT necessarily coherent or relevant, but usually silly ) “short” comment. . These he/she, when otherwise bored, oftimes dumps onto the CC Breeze Comment Page. . Recycling is frequent.

Perhaps the SPCA should look into this !

What is this terrible virus that keeps low IQ libby hit and run chronic cowards from being able to defend -anything- they say??... Always pulling a lil woolie.. needing to run, deflect, or change subjects?...Or just toothlessly & pathetically gum on decent folks ankles?.. Lack of knowledge, facts, courage or simply low IQ? I would say its a combination of these failings that results in the lil woolies & omars of the libby world...otherwise one would think they would step up to the plate rather than continue to prove I'm always right.. When ya got nothing.. the runnin woolies is what ya get... Isn't there any libbie loon in Lee Cty that can at least TRY and step up??...Obviously the libby rejects and clowns we have here can't past muster...they don't even have the wits to try...ANY other libbies out there that can help your clown crew?

The façade of diminished bigotry cloaked the intellect of the majority Americans in 94’ and before. This was a successful deception by the Right Wing and Republicans (and a few chicken hearted Dems.) They have never let go of the innate White Supremacy bigotry of Southerners and Blue Bloodied Capitalism American greed. Today it is manifest in the Republican Party and its support for this disgrace the Russians duped America into making POTUS.

One wonders if the drug “dealing” is not more the result of the wealth and income gap created by corporate control of Republican policy. The minority communities have less to spend on recreation and addictive drugs than white American. Doubtless the poor become the mules for drug distribution. What else is left for them to do? They have been under educated, redlined, under employed, under paid, misjudged and over incarcerated to accommodate white capitalism and racism.

You created this Republicans. Live with it.

Again the mental incompetent allenwoll seeks to twist and distort. Pathetic as always. There is no mention of complaining about blacks or anyone in my comment. Simply stating the obvious. Can't read challenged one? Get help allenwoll. If you can't make a point with integrity or honesty which is obviously impossible for you - then butt out. Again pathetic as usual.

J99 -- I willingly surrender my T & D title to you ! ! . “Good” job !

So then you plan to merely continue to complain about blacks generally and to NOT attempt to discover an acceptable way to help and to influence them to improve their situation ? .

You know, blacks did not exactly break the doors down to get here in the first place ! ! . Does that fact not pertain to our proper attitude toward the situation of their descendants now ? ?

We are not individually responsible, but we are certainly responsible as a nation to help ALL of our citizens who need it !

Otherwise, why talk about the subject ? ?

Leave it to allenwoll to constantly twist and distort. No mention was made of an inferior race except by you. Stating facts about the conditions and history past and present in Africa are simply facts. Its not up to anyone else nor others responsibility to correct the problem. I know many blacks from the US and two Africans that came from abject poverty in Uganda that are highly successful, one a multi-millionaire. Success starts at home by being taught personal responsibility and not being taught and living the racism crutch as a lifestyle or excuse for failure, poverty, or incarceration especially here where anyone, any color, can be successful, even mental inferiors as yourself.

DrC -- Let us FOR THE MOMENT accept your theory of "Inferior Race" (Where did I hear THAT one before ?)

So what ? . Just HOW do you propose to deal usefully AND humanely with THAT "fact" ? ? ?

I think that this line of thought goes nowhere.

I object to the following comment made by Mr. Robinson:" "Should there be an apology for introducing a crime bill in a country with such a racist white supremacy attitude?" As I search in vain for a successful black run country in Africa...I am defeated. The balcks have had Africa for a zillion years...a very rich continent...and they did nothing with it...until the whites came along. History is history. It appears that only whites are racists...really? What group yells racist constantly? And remember...racism is merely an opinion...nothing more...nothing less.

DrC -- I understand your position -- But your philosophy of affixing BLAME is obviously NOT WORKING ! ! ! . So, it is time for something else ! !

By the way, are you suggesting that our Gross Underclass somehow acts to send the jobs to China ? ? ?

Now, you give me a kind, capable, honorable & loving person, black, white or green with polka-dots and let me process him/her in my Automated Chamber of Horrors and Abuse for a year or so. . I will guarantee to return an utter monster after that year is up.

Hmmm Allen wrote, “You are both missing the central point: We are dealing with very, VERY seriously DAMAGED GOODS and we are all ill prepared for the task”. The goods were damaged by the acceptable lifestyle of their peers. That these kids do not have a home is NOT the fault of the whites, unless one maker of the child was a “white”. If their culture is a wasteland it is their fault. They say they want to be equal .. well let them belly up to the bar of responsibility. The makers of the child are the reason the child is here…what happens depends upon the quality of the parents.

DrC and NB – You are both missing the central point : We are dealing with very, VERY seriously DAMAGED GOODS and we are all ill prepared for the task ! !

Thus, DrC's Platitude : “Proper behavior starts in the home”. . WHAT home ? ? . These kids have mostly never experienced a HOME in the sense that you mean. . So, here, Dr Ma Perkins, Just exactly what is your point trying to reflect the values of Middle Class US culture onto the wasteland which is the lives of that Gross Underclass, the existence of which we have indeed fostered and done too little to mitigate -- that from the very git-go ? ?

It is all just more of patented, Warm & Fuzzy GoPer-Blather ! ! ! . The solutions would cost much, MUCH more than YOU folk are willing to pay ! ! ! . So you blame the helpless/hopeless, which accomplishes exactly NOTHING at all ! ! !

Lewis why is our black population here in America (13-15% of the total population)responsible for more than 50% of the violent crime in America? Isn't it time to stop blaming others and self-examine? Or YOU being a racist hypocrite makes you feel uncomfortable?

continued: As for long sentences for minor possession, well, that was intended to discourage drug use and possession of drugs. The results there were and are, dubious. Proper behavior starts in the home. A two-parent home is better able to provide that but in the minority communities that is difficult to find. The blacks who are raised in a proper home setting are usually not the ones one finds in the criminal justice penal system, but we rarely hear of these blacks. Mores the pity!

The black minority is about 15% of the population here: give or take. Yet they compose 50% of those on death row. The destruction of minority communities is solely the product of minority carelessness. Those in that community did not move into destroyed houses but rather destroyed them over the years through careless upbringing of children and acts of violent behavior. Additionally, as you write, “there are more than 200,000 Americans serving life sentences for drug use problems, most of them are people of color”. Well, they committed the crimes and should and must do the time. Equal opportunity and all that.

LAR -- My guess is that the annual costs of incarceration (ALL levels, F,S,C & C) would, properly applied, go a very long way toward elimination of the problem.

Thus, it is fair to say that WE Run-of-the-Mill Citizens are the underlying foundation of the problem : We put up with this ! ! !

We could start with "Buy American" and make jobs HERE ! !
