There was a simpler time in America when a “shooting gallery” was a place you went to at the county fair to win a Kewpie Doll for your best girl.
Well, these aren’t simpler times. This is 2020 America where Democrat politicians have demonized everything that’s good and decent.
As the New York Post is reporting, Manhattan’s shooting gallery is right around 40th St and Broadway. Sadly, it appears as if New York’s Finest is looking the other way as junkies are shooting up in broad daylight.
In all honesty, I don’t know if I could really blame the NYPD for looking the other way. I get the very real impression that the current resident of Gracie Mansion is itching for a reason… any reason… to toss even more cops off the police force.
Noted by New York Post reporters Julie Coleman and Jorge Fitz-Gibbon;
It’s the Great Black Tar Way.
A cluster of junkies has turned Broadway into a shooting gallery, injecting drugs unhampered in broad daylight and then shuffling around in a zonked-out stupor, seemingly oblivious to the Midtown bustle around them, The Post has learned.
If that wasn’t enough, the addicts are peppering the area with used syringes, turning individual planters on 40th Street and Broadway into mini needle parks.
“They’ve taken over the tables, blatantly using needles and shooting up heroin all day long,” said a local worker who asked that he only be identified as James. “There’s no police action, there’s no reach-out. There’s nobody preventing this, and you know we’ve had multiple calls to 311 but nobody really responds. It’s becoming a real problem.”
He called his own 311 calls “futile exercises.”
The Post spotted several of the spent needles dumped at the scene — and even caught one of the vagrants shooting up out in the open on Tuesday afternoon, with no one stepping in or saying a word.
Left, right and center, pretty much everyone agrees that America is an amazing nation. Case in point: A girl born into poverty who ended up dropping out of high school ended up as one of the most wealthy women in the country. But what has many already wishing her a pre-emptive but nonetheless fond adieu would be the recent comments by Hollywood A-Lister Whoopi Goldberg regarding the upcoming presidential election.
Born Caryn Elaine Johnson, Goldberg opined on the Jan. 20, 2016 airing of her panel discussion show The View, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump needs to “stop blaming” others for the nation’s woes and then threatened to “move” out of the country if Trump wins the election. As reported by Breitbart.com, Goldberg also admonished the presidential contenders, “So I need all the candidates to get it together. Get back to American values.”
Yet Goldberg failed to mention what she considered acceptable American values. However, she did appear on The Howard Stern Show in 2013 where she admitted to her youthful habit of shooting up heroin “because it seemed like a good idea at the time.” She also spoke of her taking a number of “shitty” jobs to feed her smack habit to include scrubbing toilets for the New York City subway system.
Highlighting her prowess at telephonic erotica, Goldberg gave an examples of her charms with Stern:
Howard: Hey baby.
Howard: What’re you wearing?
Whoopi: What do you think I’m wearing?
Howard: Are you naked?
Whoopi: I could be.
With youthful indiscretions aside, the Orlando Sentinel noted in a 1994 interview Goldberg bragged, ”I’m an anti-Semite, I’m a bigot. I’m a disgrace to my race, I’m a disgrace to women. I’m a home-wrecker. I’ve slept with everyone in Hollywood.”
Not done yet, she also added, ”It feels pretty good to be the highest-paid woman in the history of Hollywood.” While Goldberg’s best Hollywood days may be behind her, CelebrityNetWorth.com estimated her personal fortune at $45 million.
A 17-year-old girl in the Mexican resort city of Puerto Vallarta has been discovered by local medical authorities addicted to the particularly gruesome drug Krokodil, as reported by Breitbart.com on Dec. 10, 2013.
With her name not released to the public, the anonymous girl reportedly shocked Mexican doctors when they examined her and found she had been injecting Krokodil on and in her vagina.
