San Francisco librarians checking out overdue heroin addicts -What does it take to be a librarian in San Francisco? 1) You have to know how to shelve books. 2) You have to know how to check out books..and 3) You have to know how to inject heroin addicts with anti-narcotics drugs. In addition to checking out and re-shelving books, San Francisco library staffers may soon be trained to give lifesaving medication to reverse overdoses among the growing number of heroin users mixing in with the homeless in and around the Main Library. The idea surfaced after an addict was found dead

If I was a librarian there, I would be willing to learn how to administer Nalaxone with the nasal spray method. Our main library here gets its fair share of homeless. My teen daughter used to like to go there to study. She never had any problems with the homeless here- they were quiet and non-intrusive. But from the sounds of the amount of problems at their library, I wouldn´t have let her go there. My city is much safer. I wouldn´t be happy with needles left outside but I saw in the main article on SF Chronicle that they pick up needles there. Apparently, they are arresting a lot of addicts but the heroin problem is huge and heroin addicts are less dangerous than muggers and robbers.

Just wait - some librarian is going to inject an addict in the throws of an OD and save his life, only to be sued by the addict later on. You know it´s going to happen.

What else would a San Francisco library be good for? The mere fact that the City Controller´s, the People´s Communist Overseers, allow this is very disgusting. In America, no less. Ah, well. What do citizens expect from their Leftist Lords?

Let´s clear up a serious misconception right now... heroin addiction is NOT life threatening! That is unless the addict accidentally overdoses himself.

Withdrawal from heroin is NOT, let me repeat, NOT dangerous! In fact, it is FAR, FAR more dangerous for an alcoholic to come down from the DTs than for a heroin addict to go ´cold turkey.´ Alcoholics die more frequently from neglect than do drug addicts.

Just the facts...

One person has died and multiple victims have been shot after two gunmen opened fire on revelers inside of a Cincinnati nightclub. Authorities are searching for the two shooters who fled the scene after the incident that happened around 1am at the Cameo Club on Kellogg Avenue in the city.

Senator Orrin Hatch (R., Utah) introduced a bill to the Senate on March 14 that would institute new protections for gun owners who travel across state lines with their firearms. The Lawful Interstate Transportation of Firearms Act, also introduced by Rep. Morgan Griffith (R., Va.) to the House of Representatives in January, would expand and clarify the interstate firearm transportation rules instituted under the Firearms Owners´ Protection Act of 1986. Under that law, Americans are allowed to transport firearms from one state where they can legally possess them to another so long as certain requirements are met, such as the

Shakespeare’s play Othello showcases the most vile character in all of drama -- a man often referred to as “honest Iago.” He is especially horrifying because he is charming, efficient, and intelligent, but mostly because he often breaks the fourth wall, looks the audience right in the eye, and tells us what his next diabolical move will be. We’re in on it whether we want to be or not. He creates chaos just because he can and we are powerless to stop him. Watching the news these days feels much like watching Othello.

It is one of the most famous liberal media narratives in American history. On November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. For anyone alive in the day — I was in the 7th grade — it was a horrific moment. The America of 1963 was experiencing the beginning turmoil of the Civil Rights movement. There were a handful of military “advisers” in a far off place called Vietnam. But for the most part the country was at peace, its eyes already trained on Thanksgiving, a mere week distant, and the Christmas holidays that would follow.

House Republican leaders abruptly pulled a Republican rewrite of the nation’s health-care system from consideration on Friday, a dramatic acknowledgment that they are so far unable to repeal the Affordable Care Act. “We just pulled it,” President Trump told The Washington Post in a telephone interview. The decision came a day after President Trump delivered an ultimatum to lawmakers — and represented multiple failures for the new president and House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.). The decision means the Affordable Care Act remains in place, at least for now, and a major GOP campaign promise goes unfulfilled. It also casts

Get to know some of these Democratic leaders,” he said. “You can find common ground.” McCain said he’d met Trump “some years ago” when he was a businessman, but had not met him since. McCain said he did speak “almost daily” to National Security Adviser Lt. Gen. H.R. McMaster and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, however. “He doesn’t seem to

Donald Trump had heard enough about policy and process. It was Thursday afternoon and members of the House Freedom Caucus were peppering the president with wonkish concerns about the American Health Care Act—the language that would leave Obamacare’s “essential health benefits” in place, the community rating provision that limited what insurers could charge certain patients, and whether the next two steps of Speaker Paul Ryan’s master plan were even feasible—when Trump decided to cut them off."Forget about the little "stuff", Trump said, according to multiple sources in the room.

Broken promises are as old as politics itself, and there are many famous examples of them in modern history. President George H.W. Bush´s "read my lips, no new taxes" pledge comes immediately to mind, as does President Bill Clinton reneging on his middle-class tax cut, and President Barack Obama never closing Guantanamo Bay. But in each of those cases, those were promises that were made in a given campaign by a given politician. The promise of Obamacare repeal is much different. Republicans ran on repealing and replacing Obamacare for seven years, over the course of four election cycles. They won the

Health Reform: Friday´s decision to pull the American Health Care Act from the House floor because it lacked enough votes to pass was a culmination of months of bad decisions, poor planning, and terrible messaging by the GOP leadership in the House. This failure undermines not only the party´s credibility, but President Trump´s purported ability to "make great deals." Worse, it emboldens the left-wing "resistance." Back in early December, we warned in this space that the Republican´s ObamaCare repeal effort was "off to a bad start."

House Republicans scrapped a vote on their health care replacement plan on Friday after defections from both the right and center that made it clear the bill would not pass. President Trump tried to spin the setback as a defeat for Democrats who wouldn´t cross the aisle to support the bill — despite not making any entreaties to the minority party. Trump — who is the first president to enter office without any political or legislative experience — did seem to admit there was a bit of a learning curve when it came to such a complex issue.
