so no one is going to like my take on this,
& I hope to share more officially with an article

But people are being a little misled here
washingtonpost.com/health/2022/07… #chronicpain #opioids #westvirginia #drugs #opioidcrisis
reason we're seeing opioids lawsuits being overturned is not about the validity of what the companies have done but how they've been sought after by AG's & litigators

TDLR: Public Nuisance lawsuits are IMO garbage that works by intimidation & not merit

reason.com/2019/08/27/the…
Public Nuisance lawsuits mean plaintiffs don't have to prove intent or specific ways that the defendants' actions led to damages

good scare tactics for an issue w/ lots of public feeling & can push judges & juries to do things they might otherwise not

Coal barons have had 50 years to get clean without ever doing more than lobby to keep polluting. The fundamental lie at the heart of the #WestVirginia ruling is that elimination of coal was an EPA goal; it wasn’t. The industry refused to stop polluting. qz.com/2183808/the-su…
“In a dissenting opinion, justice Elena Kagan, arguing that Section 111(d) did in fact empower the EPA to act sweepingly against carbon emissions, suggested that the court’s majority was interpreting the law conveniently to suit its own priorities.” qz.com/2183808/the-su…
What Kagan argues, with close personal knowledge of the majority’s background reasoning & legal expertise more rigorous than theirs, is that they have abused their position & lied about the law to impose a political outcome that favors funding allies & imposes harm on innocents.

@WVUPolicyRes - a 🧵

If you follow me, you'll know that earlier this year I came home to #WestVirginia and @WestVirginiaU @WVUEberly to start the Institute for Policy Research and Public Affairs. Our Twitter account is above, and we'd appreciate a follow.
Our account will cover research, data, and issues important to the state of #WestVirginia and the broader region of #Appalachia, but will touch on issues important nationally in areas like ours.
We also aim to signal-boost research by scholars working in #publicpolicy, #publicadministration, and #stateandlocal #socialscience. If you have work that you think is relevant to our aims, please dm us and we'll be happy to #Tweet you and your work.

Goddamn it. #westvirginia Image
Worth noting this story only mentions police activity, no reference to 'why' yet specifically. Still trying to verify what happened.

Record Numbers of Americans Dying of Overdoses. Instead of Justice, We Get Theater👨‍⚖️

"Whole thing is kabuki theater, It ought to be about money" said Ausness. "About who pays what & instead they want to make Sacklers listen to people complain about them"
newsweek.com/record-numbers…
Guggenheim joined several other museums last week w/an announcement they are removing the Sackler nameplate from their arts center,

Once again victims are being offered busy work as though it were meaningful reform.

We are in the midst of the opioid crisis, an addiction & overdose crisis fed by the ubiquity of illicit & deadly fentanyl in the black market,

West Virginia protest calls out #JoeManchin’s dirty coal profits ~ by Palast Investigative Fund fellow @ZDRoberts gregpalast.com/west-virginia-…
The plant the @WV_Rising activists targeted in Grant Town, #WestVirginia, isn’t just any of the over 200 coal power plants still operating in the US. It’s the one where Sen. #JoeManchin makes nearly $500,000 per year selling dirty coal waste called “gob.”
Manchin sells gob (short for “Garbage of Bituminous") for a tidy profit. Activist & retired miner, Michael Whitten says: “When I worked on strip mines, we threw that away..it’s like if you had a wood-burning stove..and you wanted to put wet wood in it—it’s just not economical.”

As we all wake up to this outrage happening in #Tennessee I would like to inform you that #California , #Washington #Wyoming #NewMexico ##oklaed #Mississippi #WestVirginia #michigan #Massachusetts have no specified minimum age to marry after exceptions. Child married is an issue
Across the #Unitedstates it happens in every community, culture and religion ALL ethnicities. I am begging you to please take this opportunity to learn about and help to #EndChildMarriage not only in #Tennessee but in every state. I would like to never have to stand in a room
Full of strangers and painfully share about my experiences of being married at 15 to my 43 year old abuser and plead with legislators to close this dangerous loophole that ensnares 1000s of children each year.

@Appalachia100 and @theintercept asked me to discuss social and political transition in #WestVirginia. A 🧵
What drove a West Virginia Democrat to storm the Capitol on January 6? interc.pt/3HJbD7X by @GWOTTrapLordz, twitter.com/PNickCurran, @akela_lacy
An important thread in this documentary that is often lost in discussions of these transitions is that they owe in part to a failure on the #Left to message and frame (a failure I personally think describes the last 40 years of #DemocraticParty politics).
One can't even begin to discuss these transitions in #WestVirginia without understanding the historic role of labor in organizing the cluster of identities. As labor goes, so does the #Left's ability to organize identities in a meaningful way.

providers caught up in disciplinary action viewed as “good doctors” practicing within accepted norms of patient care.

physicians never charged with any crimes but could not recover after their practice had
been shut down, records confiscated, or had poor publicity in the media🤯
“They were coming in and busting a lot of docs and then making it so… that we didn't need that law to be
afraid.”

Is Anybody Going To San Antone?

Someone once told me that Charlie Pride (country singer, baseball ⚾️ player) was the first African American country singer to ever perform at the Grand Ole Opry.

That's not true: #DeFordBailey was likely the first.
