I’m going to protect the reader’s anonymity because there is employment involved with this rant/
Good morning Fur,
My wife just sent me a text and I have to tell someone.
Let’s start off by saying, as cruel as it may sound, when “they” decided that everyone should just carry Narcan, I said, “that is a terrible idea.” People looked at me like I was promoting full birth abortions. My reasoning is quite simple. People suck. People who really suck know that good people will do everything they can to lift them up, and help them out, therefore, those sucky-ass people take advantage.
We live in a time where there is no longer such thing as consequences. Overspent by $500,000 at a college to get a degree in painting by numbers, no problem. Someone will bail you out.
Cross the boarder as a convicted felon, kill a woman, no problem. We will get some lawyer to help you out. Won’t cost you a dime.
Kids can’t read? No problem, here is a diploma anyway…go get em tiger.
Your son wants to wear high heels, and piss sitting down? No problem, the other 365,000,000 will just have to accept that.
Little Johnny acts up in school? No problem, here is an iep, some pills, and big brother will be his daddy, you know, since there is not one in the home. I could go on for hours…..
My wife works at a nursing home. Most of society does not realize that nursing home are not just for nice, sick old people who can no longer take care of themselves. They have every walk of life.
In the winter, there is an uptick in people. Reason? Well, it’s cold. The homeless, who more often than not are crazy, need a place to ride it out. Sure it may sound stereotypical, but 98% of the homeless are either plum crazy, a drug user, or both. Around this same time there is also an uptick in younger people who are not homeless, but have some sort of infection, injury (real or fake), that gets the gubmint to pay for x number of days.
So, my wife just sent me a text. She says one of the “newer” residents ODed. They were going to die. The nurse administered Narcan. Saves their life. The druggie, whose life was just saved, says to the nurse, “you own me $40.00 for screwing with my high.”
I’m not joking.
It is bad enough that they know they can take risks because of the “controlled” situation they are in, they know if they mess up chances are very high someone will run in and save their lives, they also have this bizarre attitude.
Like any good low life, they take advantage of the situation. Narcan is everywhere. Police cars, minute clinics, schools, you name it, they are stocking it, and afterward, they can request your $40.00 because you just f#cked up their high.
I’m not a soulless dick. I have seen what those drugs can do, up close and personal. I also have friends and family in law enforcement, as well as the healthcare industry. I’ve seen things. When a guy is caught selling this $hit, and is a felon already, and is in possession of a gun to boot, and runs from the cops, crashes into property, etc., no matter how bad they done f-ed up, that bastard will be out in less than 3 years.
If I let my CCW expire, and got caught with a loaded weapon, I would get 10 years. I’m just sick of it.
The rant stopped short of saying what I think they are saying – no more Narcan.
It’s a tough call. We have the technology to save someone from an overdose, how can we not?
But, on the other hand…
