  1. Bill Maher:

    This is why so many people, by the way, were triggered by COVID policies. They were already sick of rules, regulation should be a good issue for Democrats. It's certainly one they're associated with. And I think the average voter would agree that banks, chemical plants and drug companies need watching … but Democrats have become a parody of themselves just making rules to make rules because it makes you feel like you're a better person. Making sure that everything bad never happens again, which you can never fully do. It just makes everyone else's life a drag.

    What you're seeing is the drug cartels, and how powerful they really are and how this administration isn't addressing that. We talk about why [migrants] are coming to America — we're talking about money, and we're talking about drugs, and we're talking about how they can exploit Latinos from Mexico, but also exploit the American population, so when I talk about Oregon… what we have to address is the fentanyl crisis. Because of this open border, these failed policies, it allows for that drug crisis and drug cartels to traffic right up into Oregon and our fentanyl crisis is higher than the national average in deaths.

  5. Owen Ryan:

    In the average adult it takes between eight to 10 years for someone who is HIV positive to show signs that they're infected and ill, so it's almost impossible for people to tell if someone has HIV early on.
