    Remind me again how often Grand Juries result in indictments?
    The answer to that would be 99.99 percent of the time, Alex.

    I have to hand it to CNN.  They are the best at giving audiences highs and lows.  The best was election night and how that entire radlib station realized that Donald Trump was soon to be called President Trump.  This latest breaking news gives them a new high.  This latest breaking CNN sensational nothing burger will not impeach President Trump.

    Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not. Both ideas are overwhelming. AE

    He is currently in his first term in office, so it would be pretty hard for him not to have one. A term isn't necessarily a complete one though.

    This is all the doing of the Kenyan Muslim working in the background. Or something like that. Or maybe we can all just agree on the fact that Mueller is a traitor?

    At a rally in Huntington, West Virginia, on Thursday evening, Mr Trump said the allegations were a "hoax" that were "demeaning to our country".

    "The Russia story is a total fabrication," he said. "It's just an excuse for the greatest loss in the history of American politics, that's all it is."

    The crowd went wild as he continued: "What the prosecutor should be looking at are Hillary Clinton's 33,000 deleted emails."

    "Most people know there were no Russians in our campaign," he added. "There never were. We didn't win because of Russia, we won because of you, that I can tell you."

    The whole god damn country has a drug problem! So, it's safe to say that New Hampshire does as well. And, no Trump and Sessions, it's not pot or crack or whatever minorities are doing- it's white collar, hard working Americans getting hooked on painkillers they shouldn't have been prescribed in the first place.

    Does New Hampshire have a drug problem or is this fake news too?

    The whole god damn country has a drug problem! So, it's safe to say that New Hampshire does as well. And, no Trump and Sessions, it's not pot or crack or whatever minorities are doing- it's white collar, hard working Americans getting hooked on painkillers they shouldn't have been prescribed in the first place.

    Read an article that Sessions and the DOJ are going to use technology and machine learning to identify off trends for docs and pharmacists that are prescribing painkillers.  I think this is a great idea.

    It's a problem here in Canada as well, and you're right about the demographic: I feel like people who haven't seen addiction in middle America assume it's limited to the Jesse Pinkmans of the world.

    A close friend's father had long suffered with agonizing back pain from years of playing rugby, and had an invasive surgery to fix the issue. He got hooked on the painkillers he was prescribed, and ended up in rehab. It was a horrible time for the whole family, and now he's petrified of taking any painkillers at all, even after the other surgeries he's had to endure since.

    I think you're missing the point. That technology isn't new, and has not helped solve the problem.
