FlashHarry: i hope this asshole has a granddaughter OD on heroin.


I hope his whole family ODs on heroin.  What a complete shiat stain of a human being.  People suck, but not usually this hard.

This and that.
I'm the first one in line to replace clinics with cots and handcuffs, but narcan saves lives.
Fark the entire LePage froggy family.
May he get broken into by a ravenous junkie who eats his eyes out and leaves him alive with AIDS and Hep C.

They really are the party of dickholes.
 
2014-02-12 11:29:22 AM
This cannot possibly be for real.

Is this motherf*cker serious?

Sounds like the same faulty reasoning behind rejection of the HPV vaccine.

But facts be damned when you're standing on (reprehensible) principles!

"His main objection is his belief -- and I have to emphasize 'his belief' because there is no evidence that supports this at all -- his belief that increasing the availability of Narcan or naloxone will lead the drug user or drug abuser to have this feeling of invincibility," Gideon said.

LePage spokesman Peter Steele told HuffPost that the governor's office does not comment on bills before they reach his desk. But opposition to naloxone access would be in line with his veto last year of a similar bill meant to provide legal immunity for health professionals administering naloxone to those suffering from an overdose. LePage also vetoed a bill last year to create "Good Samaritan" protections from prosecution for drug possession for people who call 911 when they suspect a companion has overdosed.


Wow....this guy really is a grade-A asshole.
 
2014-02-12 11:47:08 AM
What do your stupid facts matter when I have BELIEFS? And I believe the fastest way to solve our state's heroin problem is to encourage junkies to die as quickly as possible without interference from the state. Buncha do-gooder buttinskis need to mind their own beeswax.

But seriously... how did Maine end up with this pecan log as governor, anyway? I thought Maine was sane, but there I go, being all wrong again.

FlashHarry: i hope this asshole has a granddaughter OD on heroin.


Oh, but you can absolutely bet that if his granddaughter did OD on heroin, there would be a syringe full of Narcan standing by for her.

I think this is wrong, but I'm going to stop short of wishing death and OD on people, especially ones not directly responsible for this move.

If you live in Maine and either use heroin yourself or know someone who does, The Governor is actively wishing for their death.

First, I think anyone using heroin has a death wish of their own on some level, and second, I still think that's a bit much. Wishing death upon people is bad ju-ju.

Unless, of course, one is a Republican governor, apparently. You seem to reserve your outrage for random internet posters while hand-waving away a Republican elected official wishing death on his constituents.

Oh, is that what I do? Okay. I didn't mean to upset you with my not-wishing-death-on-people-and-not-being-sufficiently-outraged-to-you r liking. Would you be so kind as to direct me as to how I can express a level of outrage that is appropriate, and how that will effectuate a change in this policy, since apparently it is essential that I do so?

Is there some running contest among Republicans to see who can be the most vile twat?

I'm going to skip his family, and just hope he dies. He can OD if he wants, but really just die.
 
2014-02-12 01:07:37 PM
Great choices here. Rooting for the pharmaceutical industry or the security industry.
 
2014-02-12 01:08:00 PM
Yes, Narcan is very effective on reversing a heroin overdose, but that isn't where it really flexes it's muscles.  More people die from prescription drug overdoses than heroin.  Your kid accidentally gets a hold of your bottle of Oxycontin or Hydrocodone and chomps it down like Flintstones vitamins.  Your wife becomes addicted to Morphine and is able to shop enough Doc-in-a-Boxes to finally get enough to overcome her tolerance and get that buzz she used to get but goes a few pills too far and her respiratory system starts to shut down.  First responders NEED this drug, it saves lives, and not all of them are the junkie in the alley heating a spoon.
 
2014-02-12 01:09:11 PM
"LePage's fellow Republican, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, once opposed both increased naloxone access and Good Samaritan protections. "

Christie is showing his RINO nature more and more every day.
Please run for president, I want to see the Republicans throw you under the bus.

Maine Gov. Paul LePage (R) appears set to oppose a bill increasing access to a lifesaving anti-overdose medication because of concerns rejected by public health experts that it could encourage more drug abuse

I'm going to try to get some HIV. With the quality of anti-retroviral therapies available these days, I see no reason not to.
 
2014-02-12 01:11:12 PM
Really, if you OD on heroin is there anything to live for anyways?

2014-02-12 01:11:47 PM
Why not? People will surely stop overdosing if they know the drug isn't available, right?
 
2014-02-12 01:11:50 PM
"I'm opposing this bill because people shouldn't do bad things."

"Uh, Governor, people will still do bad things, this just helps mitigate the damage."

"PEOPLE SHOULDN'T DO BAD THINGS!!!  PEOPLE SHOULDN'T DO BAD THINGS!!!  PEOPLE SHOULDN'T DO BAD THINGS!!!"

News tomorrow:
"ones of heroin users leave Maine due to lack of life saving medicine for OD's"
 
2014-02-12 01:14:45 PM
My very good friend was left on a cold porch to die because her "friends" were afraid of getting arrested. This law-and-order tyrant can choke on Satan's many-headed cock.

Is the availability of turtlenecks encouraging him to have all those chins?

This.

Governor Jackass is willing to let a child that accidentally ODs on his parent's pills to die, just because he believes that having a prevention readily available might encourage someone else to do more drugs recreationally.
 
2014-02-12 01:15:28 PM
Okay, I won't wish death on his family, but I do hope this goobenor is beaten to within an inch of his life and spends the rest of it in a world composed of nothing but pain.

That seems fair.

And while we're at it, let's remove seat belts and airbags from cars. They just encourage unsafe driving habits.

Mainer here... LePage won the election after an Independent candidate split the Democratic vote, we have been making Fark regularly since then... and more good news farkers, with the election coming up... it is all set to happen again.

/Hate the bastard.
 
2014-02-12 01:16:19 PM
 Remember this next tome someone on the right tells you that drug laws are to protect people. They could give a shiat less about people, it's all about ideology and their "culture war". Which is also why they support locking non violent drug offenders away with violent criminals and marking their record for life while claiming "it's for their own good" nothing less than hate and malice in their heart on this one I'm afraid.

The people of Maine voted and got the governor they deserve.

Yes

Couldn't this drug also help people who overdose on certain prescription painkillers?

according to friends who live there, because old people...
 
2014-02-12 01:18:38 PM
BTW, this is an EXACT parallel of the government "denaturing" industrial ethanol in the 1920s to ensure that people who drank it would get sick and/or die. An estimated 10,000 people died from poisoning in pursuit of Prohibition. Let's hope Maine's death toll is lower.

Isn't this like opposing HPV vaccine because it will turn young girls into raging cock gobblers?

Yes, you're clearly better than everyone else.  You're merely defending the guy wishing death upon others, and using the power of his office to achieve it.

So, basically it's Ralph Nader's fault again? Makes sense.

If I had to live in Maine, I would use heroin.

Diogenes: Sounds like the same faulty reasoning behind rejection of the HPV vaccine.

But facts be damned when you're standing on (reprehensible) principles!


This.

"Vaccine for a sexually transmitted disease? That'll just encourage 'em to have sex!"

"Medication to help with overdoses? That'll just encourage people to be more reckless with drugs!"


Let's carry that through to other things:

"Seat belts? That'll just encourage people to drive more recklessly!"

"Umbrella? That'll just encourage people to stay outside when it's raining!"

....
