This likely belongs in a separate Democrats Suck thread, but I have not received dispensation to start such a thread.

Anyhoo, never, ever doubt that you can alter your path in life. If this hippie can do it, so can you.

You know, my initial reaction was "good for her!" (and tbh that remains my reaction) but as I read the interview when it got to the part where she said "the bigger problem" is that these whack-jobs came to "arrest the police", it made me pause. I mean, as absurd as it is on its face, I kind of like the idea of citizens confronting the popular mythology of "the police work for us".

These are the Queen of Canada's Qanon followers and I don't think they should be the police we reform the existing police with unless we're trying for a LARP of The Purge.

Fentanyl is worrisome, especially as it can easily contaminate other things, but also lol cops!
Cops What makes Humphries worried about this new trend is who those manufacturing these pills are trying to target. "It looks like candy," Humphries says. "There's a purpose for it, you know. Could it be that they're trying to target children?"
He also is concerned that if a user who is also a parent obtained one of these candy-colored pills, a young child would not be able to tell the difference. Humphries says, "A kid comes by all, 'Mommy's got candy,' you know, there could be serious consequences."

:facepalm: These aren’t made to look like candy, unless you count mommies Oxycodone as candy. Round shape with an M inside a box on one side, a score mark with 30 on the other in light blue is a type of Oxy according to the pill database. Whoever made these has a similar die press but seems to have run out of blue so went for all the colors instead, at least it’s a nice way of marking most but not all of them as certainly not Oxy.

It’s been far more than worrisome for a very long time now. It’s an epidemic that can mutate and grow in different directions every time an avenue is cut off. And yeah I thought that was a silly observation about the intentional targeting of children, though it could have incidental consequences. One of the things that infuriates me about this opioid epidemic is that people who need pain management long term or even short term cannot get it . physicians are not being allowed to prescribe it. An airway specialist told me as much when discharging my husband from the hospital after having an emergency tracheostomy. He sent him home with like three days worth of narcotics. That’s pretty inadequate for someone who’s just had a hole cut in their throat and a piece of plastic stuck in there with the plan being that it’s for several months after the operation. I wonder how mommies are getting their oxy anymore, because it’s doubtful it’s coming from a legitimate prescription.

If I understood it correctly, the "frolicking in the rain" theme was done by black creators in the recent past, and this woman is accusing Barrymore of simply copying the trend - copying without acknowledgement. There's a long tradition of white artists copying black creators for profit, which is the implication at the end.

I don't know if any of this is true. Barrymore seems like the kind of person to frolic in the rain and then post it to social media in an attempt to inspire others, independent of anyone else.

Also, this poor lady is being amplified by "Libs of Tik Tok" - the account specializes in finding people who are confused or just doing a bad job of presenting their ideas.

None of this is news, IMO.

Leonardo DiCaprio splits with girlfriend a few months after she turns 25. Which wouldn’t be news I would normally care about except for this graph made in 2019 essentially predicting this break up.

It could also go in a "the Green Party sucks" thread.

Goes to show that you gotta beware a Green Party person who switches to being a Democratic politician - is it more because they've matured and changed their views on ways to achieve progress, or is it more because they're tired of being a perennial loser and personally want to get ahead? Seems like in Sinema's case, it's the latter. (Particularly with the hints from DC insiders that she thinks she could get elected president, perhaps as an independent, which is why she's not worried about alienating Democratic primary voters in Arizona.)
