Could be different reasons the hits are so high?
Maybe New Brunswickers wishes to know the going ons in the Legislature or it could be because of the CBC interview that was played on Maritimes Noon.
In my opinion? This blog is doing pretty good.
Keep those comments coming and keep on reading.
You never know what issue will come out from my ADHD Brains!!!!
ST.GEORGE NEW BRUNSWICK IS TRYING THE EDUCATE THE PUBLIC OF THE DRUG PROBLEM. BUT WILL IT WORK? I DOUBT IT!!!
The little town in Charlotte County is on a huge Anti-Drug campaign with our youths but it won’t work.
Charlotte County has a major prescription drug problem.
You know what the sad part is?
There’s no location in Charlotte County a person can have access to Methadone.
The nearest place is Saint John.
So if you don’t have a lot of money < which these addicted people don’t! > you are stuck in the life of stealing from your own family members to support your drug problem.
Bernard Lord and company have truly shown that they don’t care.
Where else in Canada is there a waiting list for Methadone?
Only in New Brunswick!!!!!
Nova Scotia is beginning to confront the problem but not here.
It’s up to the owner of a Pharmacy to carry methadone and the ones in Charlotte County don’t want nothing to do with it.
I was making waves in educating the public on this issue until someone from the Lord Government ordered Rogers Television < Old Germany > to not take my calls any longer.
Only in New Brunswick where Rogers Television < Old Germany > and the Irvings control New Brunswickers freedom of speech.
Ok…never mind that!!!!
St.George is trying hard but they cannot go into the school system and tell the students not to take Ritalin because some students are already ordered on the drug.
These kids start snorting Ritalin and they go to higher drug.
Here in New Brunswick? We need a Leader who’s not afraid to confront the prescription drug in this Province.
I wish the citizens in Saint George the best of luck but I doubt they will succeed in their quest.
A good start would be supplying the methadone in Charlotte County but the Pharmacists don’t want it.
They don’t mind giving up the oxy-contin but it’s a big NO to Methadone!
Does this make any sense? Give me a break!!!!
I give the citizens are going to hold a parade in the town of St.George this week?
This will give them a chance to educate the public. I wish them the best of luck!!!
Going back to Saint John? There's over 20 females selling their bodies on the street to get thier fix. The tree on the tree is a girl that died.
The other is a prostitute who's on the street and she has been on the waiting list for a long time.
Goodfellas and bad women
Andrew Anthony find The Real Goodfellas to be all mouth and no bite, while Suburban Shootout makes a lively start

Henry Hill suffered from undiagnosed attention deficit disorder and learning difficulties as a child. In The Real Goodfella one of his fawning character witnesses suggested that only 'a rare person would have risen above those things'. Hill was not that rare person, so instead he joined the mafia and became an extortionist, an armed robber, a drug dealer and an accomplice to murder.
You know how it is with hyperactive kids: first they won't sit down at dinner, and next they're hijacking and burying people somewhere in the swamps of New Jersey. At the return from the commercial break, you half-expected to hear the words: 'Sponsored by Ritalin'.
Hill is the hood-turned-informer on whom Martin Scorsese based his mafia epic Goodfellas. A long-term alcoholic who has also served his time with cocaine and heroin, Hill never actually said anything that made any sense. If you listened very carefully it was possible to pick out the occasional non-expletive in Hill's conversation - words like 'the' and 'and' and 'it' - though their presence in a sentence often seemed gratuitous, needlessly breaking up the kind of infelicitous sequences of profanity of which Gordon Ramsay could only dream.
There were a few statements about how violence horrified him. But these were cursory and self-serving and so it was left to his various biographers, including Scorsese, to fill in the gaping holes. But no one displayed much appetite for that job, preferring instead to endorse the myth they had so profitably helped to create. Amid the hype and excited tales of Hill's psychopathic former associates, it was possible to glean that Hill was a minor sleazebag who used to hang around with major sleazebags. Even living under the witness protection scheme in Nebraska failed to inhibit Hill's criminal activities. From this we were meant to gather that he was a loveable, if incorrigible, rogue rather than, say, an opportunistic rat.
Many of the same cast of mafia observers in The Real Goodfella also turned up in The Godfather and the Mob and The Real Sopranos, the two other films in what Channel 4 billed as its Mob Week. They all shared the same narrator, the same theme of the interplay between the real-life mafia and Hollywood's fictional version, and were produced by the same production company.
The subject boasts enough history to warrant a documentary series but these programmes taken together lacked sufficient material to add up to one decent documentary, much less three. Like Hill, they fell victim to ADD, jumping from one event to another idea without ever establishing the basics of the story they were trying to tell. One moment, for example, we were told the mafia doesn't deal with hard drugs because it's too risky, the next that it's their main business.
It was symptomatic of the general inconsistency and indifference to detail that in some shots Hill spoke with a full set of gleaming white teeth, while in others they were as missing as Jimmy Hoffa. Had they been removed between takes by some vengeful mafia enforcer with a pair of domestic pliers? We never found out. But the toothless Hill summed up the production: all mouth and no bite.
Violence was very much the topic of the week on Channel Four. Britain's Yobs aimed to get to grips with the growing problem of teenage anti-social behaviour and street assaults. To this end the camera crew drove up to gangs of hoodies and asked them what they were doing out at night. For some reason, none of them said that they were waiting to engage in random acts of violence on innocent passersby.
Another candidate for Ritalin prescription, the film rushed around the country looking for action or a thesis or something that might lend it a sense of purpose. But it never stayed anywhere long enough to find out what it was that it wanted to find out.
Teenage street crime is a complex issue inextricably bound up with the unwillingness of adults to feel, never mind take, civic responsibility. No documentary could expect to unearth the golden solution to this gathering crisis. The very least it ought to do, however, is question received wisdoms. Long before a group of adolescent boys were interviewed around a pool table telling the camera that if it wasn't for the youth club they'd be on the streets committing crime, the filmmakers made it clear that they preferred to reach for the nearest cliché.
JESUS SAID TO THEM, "I AM THE BREAD OF LIFE. HE WHO
COMES TO ME SHALL NEVER HUNGER, AND HE WHO
BELIEVES IN ME SHALL NEVER THIRST."
( JOHN 6:35 *NKJV )
We eat bread to satisfy our hunger and nourish our
human bodies. To nourish our spiritual bodies, we need
Jesus, for it is written; JESUS SAID "WHOEVER DRINKS
THIS WATER WILL THIRST AGAIN, BUT WHOEVER
DRINKS OF THE WATER THAT I SHALL GIVE HIM WILL
NEVER THIRST. BUT THE WATER THAT I SHALL
GIVE HIM WILL BECOME IN HIM A FOUNTAIN OF
WATER SPRINGING UP UNTO EVERLASTING LIFE."
( JOHN 4:13-14 )
You see Charles, our spiritual food is the Word
of God, and Jesus is that Word, for it is written; THE WORD
BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US, AND WE
BEHELD HIS GLORY, THE GLORY AS OF THE ONLY
BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER, FULL OF GRACE AND
TRUTH. ( JOHN 1:14 )
Now there is a restaurant that specializes in Spiritual Food
right in your own neighborhood. It is also very easy to find,
and it's name is your local Church. A five star Spiritual Meal
should be served there every Sunday morning! You won't
need a reservation, just stop by and tell them that Pastor
Allen sent you. Amen.
With My Love & Prayers,
your servant Allen
