Drugs, Death and Salute to Mothers
So, I was scouring the news this weekend and came across an article citing 35 bodies found in mass grave in the state of Jalisco, Mexico. Many were tied up when they were killed. The drug problem in Mexico is alarming. Over 40,000 people have gone missing or presumed dead since the implementation of militarization of the Drug War in Mexico since 2006. Over 250,000 have been killed in violent crimes in Mexico many drug related. Last year alone in the state of Jalisco over 2400 homicides were recorded according to afp.com. It would appear that the Drug Cartels are gaining the upper hand.
Mexico is not alone when it comes to drug problems. In 2017, the United States experienced the worse year for drug overdose deaths, according to the Centre of Disease Control & Prevention. Over 72,000 people died or 200 per day. That is more than Guns, Car Crashes and HIV/Aids combined. More than the loss in life in the Vietnam and Iraq wars. This is serious folks!
Opiod deaths are sky rocketing. Fentanyl and Oxycodone are the main culprits. These synthetic drugs are 50 times more powerful that heroine.
Our prisons are full of drug related offenders. Our grave yard’s are welcoming more and more victims. We have tried educating our young. Tried passing more and more laws and adding more police to enforce existing laws but to no avail.
More people are using prescription, non-prescription and street drugs than ever before to satisfy addictions, escape problems – emotionally or psychologically , or deal with physical pain. The impact on society is devastation and the offshoot is prostitution, violent crime, gangs, guns and grieve.
Best approach is to just say NO. That it too simple. Another is to follow the money and determine who is profiting the most.

Imagine showing up at the airport on Saturday evening awaiting your flight and finding out it has been delayed due to the arrest of the pilot flying the plane.
This story was reported by Lindsay Bever of the Washington Post.
Passengers were indeed getting anxious awaiting their flight out of Louisville International Airport in Kentucky this past Saturday when they heard their pilot had been arrested but they assumed this was alcohol related according to passengers who spoke with Fox affiliate WDRB.
Come to find out ,after three years, following a triple homicide in Pembroke, Kentucky, Christian Richard Martin, 51, a pilot with PSA airlines- affiliate of American Airlines- was arrested and charged with their deaths.
Martin was taken into custody at the Louisville airport and charged in the deaths of Calvin and Pamela Philips and Edward Dansereau. In addition to three counts of murder he has been charged with one count of arson and tampering with evidence.
Calvin Philips was found dead of an apparent shotgun wound while Pamela ,his wife and a neighbour Mr. Dansereau were found dead in Pamela’s car in a field. According to the article the car was burned.
American Airlines said Martin had been a pilot with them since January 2018 and that a background check and recurring vetting had been done. Martin, according to the airline statement had no previous criminal record and was cleared to be a pilot.
Martin is being held without Bond awaiting trial.
Wow, this would make for a great movie or book some day. Follow with Paul P.
Well I must say that I am not surprised to find that Hepatitis A was found in Pinellas County. Honestly, I am scared out of my wits knowing this information. When going out to restaurants, I am frightened not knowing weather I will catch some hideous virus from someone who refuses to wash their damn hands after using the rest room, touching used materials on the job, or after handling other personal business.
The number one rule for any person would be to wash your damn hands!!!! I think that as we continue to go through life and as generations continue, we find that the nastier we become. I swear I never knew that one could be so damn lazy that they would not feel bad about digging their hands in a persons food without washing their damn hands!!! Florida has become a lot of things but most of all its become a place that you can catch any disease in less than five minutes if you not careful!
What happened to beautiful Florida? The place you go to enjoy great vacations, romantic dinners, the finest clubs, and a place where they use to have people who used yes sir, or yes ma’am when you ask for service. Instead, you can count on getting into road rage with drivers and people pulling out guns on you, doors kicked out of local restaurants, people killing their spouse and throwing them in a swamp, children being kidnapped, children disrespecting their elders, women fighting over men and recording it on camera and sex offenders on each street. My heart aches for Florida so so much will it ever recover?

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Gov. Ron DeSantis said there were no manipulation of votes on Florida election hacking mention in the Mueller report.
In a news conference Tuesday, the governor said he had been briefed by the FBI and that two counties were hacked by Russian "spear-fishing."
However, the counties were not named.
DeSantis said a non-disclosure agreement had been signed and the impacted counties could not be named.
This comes following release of the Mueller report, which indicated "Florida" had been mentioned 30 times, including a mention that an intelligence arm of the Russian military gained access to at least one Florida county government network.
