The interesting thing is that if Trump declares the opioid epidemic a "national emergency", this will directly affect healthcare, and emergency funds will be allocated to address the problem...

... which is basically Medicaid, just without a capital "M".... the public, funding nationalized health care, for the poor and indigent who cannot afford it themselves.

I'm not sure how to feel about this. Trump is so far off the rails he's starting to come around the other side...

Weirdoland, people. We live in weirdoland.

Fuckin' whatever it takes. The book referenced above includes a number of chapters involving Chimayo. Talks about lowriders I remember. Mentions names I know. Covers the period an ex-girlfriend died, a neighbor got murdered and my sister's ex-boyfriend ended up beheaded in a ditch.

It was all academic until I started recognizing names. Shit got real, real quick.
