WITH SEATTLE OVERRUN BY CRIME AND DISEASE, THIS IS A PRIORITY? Seattle Police Chief Tells People To Call 911 If They Hear ‘Racist Name-Calling.’

Joe Biden Can't Be President (2)
I remember Blowhard Joe from the 1980s, the 90s, the 2000s, the 2010s. He was an incompetent buffoon and a fool back then. Today he is all of that plus mental incompetence. Biden is the man who knew too little ... to be President or anything else of substance.
I wish Biden were Bill Murray's character from the movie The Man Who Knew Too Little, but he is Chance the Gardener from Being There.
"The Real-Life Costs of Bad Regulation"

Yet more: "FDA Shouldn’t Keep Safe Drugs off the Market".
Oh, there's more: "Doctors need freedom to choose off-label drugs".
