In the midst of the media glorifying the Obama administration’s quest to release more “non-violent, low-level” crack dealers back in to the streets, Hollywood actor Philip Seymour Hoffman turned up dead last Sunday. http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/susan-jones/obama-will-take-executive-action-reduce-prison-population The actor’s fatal enslavement to a heroin addiction provided the latest high-profile reality check concerning the wickedness drugs and their pushers inflict on society.

For now, Hoffman’s unexpected death has wiped the Obama-adoring grin off the liberal media’s face. The ugly demon of drug addiction never leaves anyone euphoric when forced to face its revolting consequences. So romanticizing a vision of fairness for crack dealing criminals will have to wait.

In fact, in the wake of Hoffman’s death, CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield lashed out angrily on air that the pusher who sold Hoffman his final dose of heroin should receive a life sentence, and the Huffington Post published an article exposing what only anti-gun liberals would not recognize as common knowledge -- drugs destroy far more lives than guns do.

Of course, the president and the Democrat Party’s nefarious fantasy of imposing drug leniency and restricting guns has never had anything to do with facts or reality -- come to think of it, most of what liberals support is based on their undaunted ability to simply ignore life’s dark truths.

According to the CDC, drug overdoses accounted for 30,006 unintentional deaths in 2010 while an additional 2,963 overdose deaths could not be determined as either unintentional or deliberate suicide. How many of all these deaths are tied to “non-violent, low-level” dealers who have the president’s empathy is also undetermined. http://www.cdc.gov/homeandrecreationalsafety/overdose/facts.html
