We’ve found Donald Trump’s running mate, here in the frozen tundra

lepage-3.jpgMaine’s Governor LePage, who already gives the granola eaters in Portland  near-fatal indigestion, would drive the mainstream press literally out of its collective mind.

LePage responded to a question about how he was tackling substance abuse in Maine by talking about how much of the heroin is coming into Maine from out-of-state drug dealers.

“These are guys with the name D-Money, Smoothie, Shifty – these types of guys – they come from Connecticut and New York, they come up here, they sell their heroin, they go back home,” LePage told a large crowd. “Incidentally, half the time they impregnate a young white girl before they leave, which is a real sad thing because then we have another issue we have to deal with down the road.”

I’m no fan of the Donald, but he’d get my vote if he’d put LePage on the ticket, just for the entertainment value alone.

    Henninger in yesterday’s WSJ. When one speaks the truth bluntly they are ridiculed. The elites who lie with no limit and are praised as visionary leaders.

    Whatever LePage’s faults are, I respect his umpire approach to governance…. “calls ’em how he sees ’em”

    I need to move to Maine. This is excellent.

      If virtually all the young women there are white, then so be it. No need to mention race to make his point.

      Had he simply said “impregnating young girls” he would have alerted people to what was going on, lefties would have little to nothing over which to hyperventilate … and libertarians like me wouldn’t be pissed, either.

        Maybe LePage should move to Alabama or Mississippi where the rest of the right wing racists live. And that is the heartland of which political party, hmmmm???
        BTW, LePage is a Christie supporter. The Donald would not care for him.

  4. I heard that LePage is trying to eliminate Maine’s income tax. Any chance that’ll happen, or are we talking snowballs in hell?

    Interesting that you find LePage’s frankness appealing and not The Donald’s. What’s the difference?

    • I’m amused by LePage – the Donald scares me. Not as much as four more years of a Democrat in the White House, but ….

      • So what about Donald scares you? I ask because I am trying to tell myself I should be more scared of Donald than I currently am. I used to think he was clown, a doofus, but I’ve come to think that’s he knows exactly what he’s doing works, bad hair and all. He’s orchestrated a campaign that defies all logic and even makes the mainstream media give him praise. If he can do all that now, maybe he can actually build a wall and get Mexico to pay for it.

          Heck, Donald built the skating rink in central park at less than budget. The local politicians fumbled the project for years and wasted a lot of Money. Of course the local politicians and media never forgave him for that.

          There is no doubt in my mind that he will get a wall built no time and within. Budget,

      Won’t be hard…nobody up there has income. Except the drug dealers,of course. And the summer visitors.

    And yet it’s middle-class whites who are driving the demand for heroin in rural New England, largely from being over prescribed opioid painkillers from upper-class white doctors.

    • The scandal of over prescribing, or even prescribing it in the fist place, oxycontin is just beginning. The drug manufacture has flooded the nation with it and doctors are prescribing it with no concern whatsoever of what they’re doing. They’re producing a huge population of very young heroin junkies who started on oxys, got hooked, found it too expensive, and move to its cheaper cousin, heroin. I have met many,many young males who suffered injuries in high school sports and got addicted when their treating physicians kept prescribing the stuff. If you’re the parent of a student athlete, watch out if he or she is injured, and keep a very close eye on what the doctor is doing.

        Careful – those oxys help execs buy local homes…

        • I know a few very nice people who worked at Purdue Pharma. However, the company deserves much of the blame for the current heroin epidemic. For a long time, it did very little to prevent abuse of oxycontin. Sure, there were other parties which were partially responsible, too, but Purdue should get a lot of the blame. If Purdue got penalized for their role in this epidemic (which doesn’t seem likely) and my house’s value took a hit, I would be OK with it.

      • Fatdaddy

        So what does Gov. Malloy do? Offers Purdue Pharma incentives and sucks up to the Sacklers like a crack whore giving Charter Schools state money…
        More people are killed by pharmaceuticals than guns Danny!

        Christopher – I understand as perhaps few can.

        While opiates sometimes really are necessary, they can ruin a person’s life. No matter who you are – beware. And if you or someone you care about starts to have problems with them, learn as much as you can as fast as you can.

        These drugs literally can be killers, in every sense of the word.

          i don’t understand opiate addiction, the stuff makes me puke. for specific pain mgmt i’d rather take a dozen advil spread out over the day in increments–which is typically recommended by docs (too much at one time wreaks havoc). but, clearly, i’m the oddball out on that one. doc at my last visit looked at me puzzled when i said no oxy, hate the stuff. it is an epidemic, no doubt.

        • housecat

          Same here @3:18. I was prescribed Oxy once and all it did was make me dizzy. Did absolutely F— All for the pain. I just took Advil instead. It’s odd how differently people’s bodies metabolize certain drugs – or not. I think we should consider ourselves lucky that we’re in the latter group. What a nightmare this has turned into. HBO is currently running a documentary on the heroin epidemic in Cape Cod (!).

        • Me too @ 3:18. My doc looked at me funny as well – but the stuff makes me feel sick and keeps me up all night. Tylenol – that’s the ticket.

  6. This guy is a Christie supporter.

    Dude –

    Just because something is politically incorrect doesn’t mean it’s not true. That is what the “progressives” WANT you to believe. In fact….. I SAID IN FACT!! They use political correctness as a strategy to not deal with the real issues. It provides them cover to kick the ugly truths under the table. It is the only real strategy they actually have, and they use it better than Lizzie Borden used an ax.

    Does that make sense? You milquetoast, lily white assed, Waspy Wasp little vermin?

    Your Pal,
    Walt

    LePage says it like he sees it (one of the few). The best is how he annoys the shit out if the Libtards in Maine.

    Side note, what happened to 67 Stag’s deal? I noticed its back on the MLS now.

    • It’s a short sale (owners paid $2.4ish for it in 2005, trying to get $1.3 now), and though it was reported pending, which usually means that the bank had agreed to accept some number, you’re right: it’s back on the market. Don’t know who balked, buyer or the bank, but someone did.

    The best part is that the liberals don’t know what to say when he holds up his adopted black son from Jamaica. He’s a realist and lord know we need a few in the current environment.
