Then you have Ol’ Ernie himself. Never had a freeekin’ clue there was a problem. NOTHING ever came to his mailbox? He never renewed his license? I say lock up Ernie too just for being a dumbass and expecting us to believe that krap.
A woman in my apartment complex resells her $6,000/month Provigil pills to a sneaky pete drugstore for $1800 cash, she told me. I took her pills and the info to the police, they could not have cared less. Prescription was written by a reputable physician in an upscale 'hood. I'm sure this goes on full-time. I happen to detest the woman, but she is educated, dresses really well, does not fit the "poor ratty looking immigrant" profile at all. She's an upstanding church member.
Provigil cures nothing; it keeps you awake. Acts on the same receptors in the brain that cocaine effects. Go tell your doctor you have narcolepsy and voila! A $6,000/month resalable prescription can be yours.
I am seriously ticked. SERIOUSLY. Next time, I'm going to DEA office and notifying Medicare Fraud.
Isn’t this one of the GWB programs supported by Obama and favored as well by Jebbie?
Medicare has to process every bill and claim. Each prescription and service must be generated by a physician with valid and unique “provider number”. How hard would it be to use simple computer programs to monitor each “provider number” for prescription activity outside normal expectations for a given medical practice or specialty, then focus on the bad apples? The Obama administration can’t operate a lemonade stand, but this has been going on for decades. The government does not want to stop Medicare fraud, or it would. Every senior who has Medicare Drug Coverage is paying out the nose in higher premiums because of gross, intentional corruption.
CHICAGO (AP) Mexican drug cartels whose operatives once rarely ventured beyond the US border are dispatching some of their most trusted agents to live and work deep inside the United States an emboldened presence that experts believe is meant to tighten their grip on the world's most lucrative narcotics market and maximize profits. If left unchecked, authorities say, the cartels' move into the American interior could render the syndicates harder than ever to dislodge and pave the way for them to expand into other criminal enterprises such as prostitution, kidnapping-and-extortion rackets and money laundering.
Some cartels even have Mexican operatives fill out job applications before being dispatched to the US, Riley added.
In Mexico, the cartels are known for a staggering number of killings more than 50,000, according to one tally. Beheadings are sometimes a signature. So far, cartels don't appear to be directly responsible for large numbers of slayings in the United States, though the Texas Department of Public Safety reported 22 killings and five kidnappings in Texas at the hands of Mexican cartels from 2010 through mid- 2011. Still, police worry that increased cartel activity could fuel heightened violence.--SNIP--
In Chicago, the police commander who oversees narcotics investigations, James O'Grady, said street-gang disputes over turf account for most of the city's uptick in murders last year, when slayings topped 500 for the first time since 2008.
Although the cartels aren't dictating the territorial wars, they are the source of drugs. Riley's assessment is stark: He argues that the cartels should be seen as an underlying cause of Chicago's disturbingly high murder rate. "They are the puppeteers," he said. "Maybe the shooter didn't know and maybe the victim didn't know that. But if you follow it down the line, the cartels are ultimately responsible."
