great Intercepted podcast today from the @intercept . I can't believe the gall of Mike pompeo calling @wikileaks a hostile intelligence agency.

why is it that rampant opioid abuse only became a problem when it started effecting white middle class/aged people?
why are all the mitigation efforts aimed at stopping street dealers while the people who caused the epidemic by pushing doctors to prescribe higher and higher dosages (insys and Perdue pharma) get off scott free?
