I agree that what success I've had in life has been due to things like reading instead of terrorizing the neighborhood at an early age, attending school and doing my homework during the school years, ultimately getting my college degree, and going to school and or working from the time i was 14 until I did receive my degree and beyond. And you might say that having grown up relatively poor in a relatively poor area of the country, I was somewhat underprivileged. But what I had that I'll bet that most of those calling themselves underprivileged was a VERY motivated and motivating Mother. She taught me right from wrong. And because my Dad's income couldn't provide us with every little this and that growing up, she encouraged me to find my own source of income: sporadic part time work from about 9 years old to a 14 hour a week job working at a local radio station at 15, while attending high school. Not only that, even though both my parents were high school dropouts, she insisted that all 4 of her children attend college. The results of that: one with a Junior college degree, two of us with Bachelors, and the fourth with a Masters. All the above is a lot of words just to say that I do feel privileged, but what can the rest of us do for the, in my sense, truly underprivileged.
I think you'll find most "teabaggers" are Democrats.

I believe the "vape pen" she referred to is just what you're talking about.

Yeah, they'll tell me "Maybe you're better off not having the surgery, but taking the painkiller", then they'll tell me just how much painkiller "I need", then arrest me and my doctor if we find I need more.

It's very easy to say that what Dr. Adams proposes is bizarre, but what would you propose as a "non-bizarre" solution?

I would actually watch the Olympics if they had more of these types of moments.
How could there be any debate about this other than are the penalties severe enough. I say go back to actually giving them "real" food. The cheese and canned pork were YUMMY!
Can't describe the clothes they're wearing. Don't want to offend the fashion-challenged.
