I find it amazing that the only time Trump keeps his petty tweets quiet is when a major catastrophe is going and lets be clear, he's not quiet due to respect, he hasn't the ability to being a nation together during trying times but takes those events and utilize them for hate speeches.......Don't believe me?

Puerto Rico devastated by hurricane
Charlotteville riot between protesters and White Supremacists.
Compare Baltimore killings to Afghanistan
One of my neighbors just visited Washington DC and he stated that this fool need only go 2 blocks to see the poverty in this "Great" country
As of 8/3/2019 another White male went on a shooting spree yet he talks of the threats exacted by Mexicans in our schools, malls and public venues.
3 mass shootings this week but no ability to reach out to families.

34 people are being eulogized in the coming days but more so, what do we as a nation do to remedy such horrific acts. Dozens of people lives are changed permanently and their situation will never be the same but some of us can return to a life of tweeting, Face booking and post here on the forum to further debate our difference...somehow we can't seem to stay focused on the harm being perpetuated thus after a few days of "praying for the victims" we all return to our corners and resume the debating, which ironically speak of the harm that urban intercity, Middle Eastern and border people cause in the country.... HMMMMMMM

Not one Republican governor chose to speak today in regards to the 2 shootings, maybe they are in need of a Conservative conference so that they all are on the same page. Secondly, we see that another White male went on a killing spree but no narrative about gun control or available mental health care. If the latter mentioned is the case, every entity from the White nationalist, KKK and Trump himself should seek immediate help. Hypocritically they call a Middle Eastern or Black killer a terrorist and thug but White killers are mentally disturbed. Maybe it's time to get your stories straight and narrative together, then we as a country can resolve these issues with some sense of accord and intelligence.

This is two year old data and you can believe that those amounts have increased since.

Obama showed his true emotions while announcing a mass killings. Adversely, Trump needs a teleprompter to feign compassion but forget that he is an accessory to the hatred and vitriol expressed in the last week. Furthermore, this sick Bas..... blames the killings on video games and mental illness alone. Mr. Trump, if this is the case, please put the joy stick down and seek immediate mental attention. Remember the hate speeches we heard 75 plus years ago in Germany? This racist divider never laid a hand on his victim, he had those vile enough to do his physical bidding....Trump has learned well in regard to the past.

Trump Administration Plans to Legalize Importing Low-Cost Canadian Prescription Drugs

BY RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR / AP JULY 31, 2019

(WASHINGTON) ó The Trump administration said Wednesday it will set up a system to allow Americans to legally import lower-cost prescription drugs from Canada, weakening a longstanding ban that had stood as a top priority for the politically powerful pharmaceutical industry.

Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar made the announcement Wednesday morning. Previous administrations had sided with the industry on importation, echoing its concerns that it could expose patients to risks from counterfeit or substandard medications. Azar, a former drug industry executive, said U.S. patients will be able to import medications safely and effectively, with oversight from the Food and Drug Administration. The administrationís proposal would allow states, wholesalers and pharmacists to get FDA approval to import certain medications that are also available here.

Itís unclear how soon consumers will see results.

Most patients take affordable generic drugs to manage conditions such as high blood pressure or elevated blood sugars. But polls show concern about the prices of breakthrough medications for intractable illnesses like cancer or hepatitis C infection, whose costs can run to $100,000 or more. And long-available drugs like insulin have also seen price increases that have forced some people with diabetes to ration their own doses.


ďFor too long American patients have been paying exorbitantly high prices for prescription drugs that are made available to other countries at lower prices,Ē Azar said in a statement that credited President Donald Trump for pushing the idea. The administrationís move comes as the industry is facing a crescendo of consumer complaints over prices, as well as legislation from both parties in Congress to rein in costs.


Trump is supporting a Senate bill to cap medication costs for Medicare recipients and require drugmakers to pay rebates to the program if price hikes exceed inflation. Democrats in the House are pressing for a vote on a bill allowing Medicare to directly negotiate prices on behalf of millions of seniors enrolled in its prescription drug plan. Separately, the Trump administration is pursuing a regulation that would tie what Medicare pays for drugs administered in doctorsí offices to lower international prices.

The importation idea won praise from a key lawmaker, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, chairman of the panel that oversees Medicare. Grassley said on Twitter that importation would lower prescription drug costs, and all drugs from abroad must be verified as safe by the FDA. He and Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota have a bill to facilitate importation.

Eyeing his reelection campaign, Trump has made lowering prescription drug prices one of his top goals. As a candidate, he called for allowing Americans to import prescription drugs, and recently heís backed a Florida law allowing state residents to gain access to medications from Canada



Drug prices are lower in other economically advanced countries because governments take a leading role in setting prices. But in the U.S., Medicare is not permitted to negotiate with drug companies.

Some experts have been skeptical of allowing imports from Canada, partly from concerns about whether Canadian suppliers have the capacity to meet the demands of the much larger U.S. market. But consumer groups have strongly backed the idea, arguing that it will pressure U.S. drugmakers to reduce their prices. They also point out that the pharmaceutical industry is a global business and many of the ingredients in medications sold in the U.S. are manufactured abroad.


AARP had pushed hard for the Florida plan, saying itís possible to safely import lower-priced, equally effective drugs and it would promote worldwide price competition.

The drug industry lobby, Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, has successfully blocked past efforts in Washington to allow importation. It argues that patients would be at risk of receiving counterfeit or adulterated medications.

Remember a time that horrific acts as the recent shootings brought ALL Americans together but with current president, no ability to show remorse, regret, respect or compassion toward those that are hurting. We showed our respect and condolence by the lowering of a flag that represented us all.

Why waste time arguing and debating over the fact that the victim suffered, left behind love ones and family but please get across the fact that perpetrator was Conservative/ Liberal/Black/ White/Asian/ Muslim when he/she is identified, we then can determine if they are mentally ill or just a lowlife thug...Only in America
