I'm about 25 miles south of this fire but can see the billowing smoke from my deck - air quality is horrible.

"bomb trains" transporting oil

Cracking pipelines or ancient trains transporting oil - I don't know which is worse -- where are the regulations to protect the people -as I'm listening to the train whistles - It's really quiet where I live - the only noise at night is crickets, coyotes and train whistles.

Earlier this week, Ring of Fire host and activist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. took a trip to Oregon to look into the horrific phenomenon of bomb trains.

Many have begun to refer to the trains in the northwestern United States which are used to transport oil as “bomb trains” due to the tragic and volatile reactions that can occur if the train derails.

All year-round, trains criss-cross the American countryside transporting millions of gallons of crude oil. Just one slip up and the train carrying fuel is instantly turned into a massively dangerous bomb. That is exactly what nearly happened in the town Kennedy visited this week as his own niece was in a playground near where a train derailed just 300 feet away.

“I’m up in Oregon with the Yakima fighting the bombtrains. This one derailed 300 feet from middle school where my 14 year old niece Kate Skakel is student president. She was in the playground when the train exploded. The Fire Chief told me that it was one of the few calm days of the year. If the wind had been blowing, the town would have been incinerated.”

I had a hide and jurior #1 wrote a nasty remark telling me to get off DU

"Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: I've really had it with the personal attacks and nonsense from reality rejectionists. Get off DU and read a third grade textbook, you're embarrassing the rest of us. "

Do people like this get to remain on juries?

Also, I felt my hide was unfair if you read the thread - 2 statements in a row putting down liberals .

statement -
"People that run around yelling about how much smarter liberals are than conservatives annoy the everloving shit out of me."
- so I get hidden for just saying this person sounds like a Republican??

Big Pharma so greedy - massive price hikes on overdose drugs

Amidst a growing opioid epidemic across the nation, big pharma is seeing dollar signs and an opportunity to make big bucks off of a lifesaving medication which saves thousands of lives yearly.

Narcan is a drug which has the ability to save the life of an individual who has overdosed on heroin by blocking the effects of the drug immediately after the overdose occurs.

In typical greedy pharma style, the company which makes Narcan and it’s generic version Naloxone have massively hiked the prices to capitalize on the growing need. There are five versions of the drug on the market, and yet, the price continues to rise.

Generic Naxolene has been on the market since 1971 and this version of the drug, manufactured by Amphastar Pharmaceuticals, is the most commonly-used version in emergency responders and in private homes during an overdose.

More than 28,000 people died from opioid and heroin overdoses in 2014, more than any year on record, according to the Centers for Disease Control. As the opioid epidemic set in, outpatient use of naloxone has increased by 72 percent in the last five years, according to Food and Drug Administration data.


In New Hampshire, which has experienced a massive growth in opioid usage in recent years, 2,800 doses of Narcan have been used since January, saving thousands of lives.
