The silver lining with this Cambridge Analytica stuff....we probably won't have to deal with a Zuckerberg for Prez campaign now.

The best part of the destruction of CA is that one less group will be out there bribing politicians and spreading lies about candidates for elections.

Someone taped them saying they can entrap politicians with Ukranian prostitutes. Just like the Ukranian prostitute said who was stuck in jail in Asia.

Tweet chain from Trump's comments today about the opioid epidemic. Here are a couple of particularly bad ones:



I'm sure he got this from his friend in the Philippines. unfortunately for him he hasn't figured out a way to execute them on the streets yet



While I will not say that the FDA is completely acting in our best interests (in terms of eliminating the most addictive - and profitable - opiates), its ridiculous to suggest that we haven't spent considerable resources on trying to develop a less addictive painkiller or that there aren't less addictive natural opioids like kratom out there.



Great so Trump is going Nancy Reagan on us. Maybe he will reintroduce D.A.R.E.! Would love to see a relaunch of 'this is your brain on drugs' commercials.

He then goes on to talk about the Wall and doubles down on his pledge to execute drug dealers.

Biss, didn't realize he is only 40.

On the other side does this nutjob Ives even have a chance vs Rauner?

She'll probably make it closer than she should (for a incumbent challenger of a minority party).

That she held a rally at Trump Tower on Sunday tells you all you need to know about her. :roll:

There's plenty of R's that don't like Rauner but won't vote for Dems that will vote for Ives. Lots of speculation that Rauner's veto of the bipartisan gun bill is an indication that he's worried and trying to woo that hard right vote.
