      That is loose change compared to the 51,000 lb plus seizure that occurred in Mexico. Three milligrams of fentanyl will cause expiration of an average size adult. That seizure represented over a BILLION doses by my calculation. Someone else estimated SEVEN BILLION.


      • boogywstew says:

        One pound = 453,592.37 mg. If it’s 3mg needed to kill an average adult that would mean we would get 151,197.456 corpses from a single pound of fentanyl. 51,000 of those deadly pounds X 151,197.456 corpses per pound = 7,711,070,256 obituaries. That’s 7.7 BILLION. Almost everyone on Planet Earth. I called this drug bust a “weapon of mass destruction” yesterday. I have to wonder if this drug delivery was meant to be aerosol-ized and sprayed over populated areas?

    I saw this story and wanted to read it :

    When I toggle to my reader viewer, this is what I get:

    Appeals court judge’s death a suicide, coroner rules The Washington Times
    2 minutes

    Trump has once again embarrassed us, in way over his head with the other leaders walking on eggshells around him in order not to infuriate him and cause a tantrum – which has happened before.Surely someone could have persuaded the Iranian foreign minister to meet with Trump if both had been willing and Trump had put international security and world stability ahead of his personal battles and prejudices and chosen to act for the welfare of the world by courteously agreeing to listening to F.M. Zarif and discuss whether any agreement could be made or future civilized discussions could take place.Trump’s obstinance and selfishness were also in evidence in his ducking the meeting on climate change – this as the Amazon rain forest is on fire, which has terrified millions of people around the globe. Trump’s insistence on sticking to his stupid prejudices and refusing to ever – ever – listen to the opinions (and facts ) of others and consider that he might be wrong – are at the root of everything wrong with his abysmal and tragic tenure.Surrounded by other world leaders of intelligence and dignitylike Macron, Abe, Merkel and Trudeau, Trump is always diminished at these events, revealed as the small, vain and stupid man he is.The next election can’t come fast enough.

    Any thoughts on how this happens?

      The text copy-pasted above by Sarasotosfan seems written by a deranged liberal who thinks s/he owns the truth. What’s the purpose of copy-pasting such drivel on a CTH page?

      BTW, Sarasotosfan, if you wanted to know why you got schwitched to an unexpected gross text when you clicked on a link why was it necessary to post the latter here?


      • sarasotosfan says:

        I wanted to know if it was just me, and if not, how does this go unnoticed?


      • sarasotosfan says:

        I have NEVER had this occur in launching the reader from Firefox. I was not impressed by the rant myself. I also don’t know that “I” was switched. Hence, my post.

    Who wants to shell out 50K to dine with a loser? She could not even fill up an auditorium for 2 dollars.

      You can buy them on the internet. Used to be without any marks on them now I don’t know. Anything you want, literally from china.

    Looks like South Carolina and Nevada are considering cancelling their Republican Primaries/Caucus. RNC not planning any Debates because we’re only 5 months away from Primary Season. The President doesn’t have time to indulge the maniacal hallucinations of these wannabe Candidates for the Republican Nomination for President when he is the Incumbent. Maybe CNN should have a town hall with Jack Ass Joe and Wheezy Weld so they can announce they are suspending their campaigns after the commercial break.

      Well, no one is going to say he doesn’t speak his mind 😂 He’s right about forests in Europe. They claim to be eco but actually only reforest pine trees because they are easily cut, grow quickly and can be cut down again to be used. But they don’t bring back native animals or flora and fauna because there is zero biodiversity.

    Splitting the difference for a 100% lethal dosage of between 2-3 milligrams, the 23,000 kilograms seized would kill 10 billion people. (unless I missed a zero here or there) The published recommended dose of Fentanyl for relief of severe pain, in a non-tolerant person, is 0.1 milligrams.
