Women and Drugs: What You Don’t Know

A 2015 data report from the United States Sentencing Commission on drug offenders revealed some very interesting findings on women who are drug users.

The first and obvious finding is that in general people are going “coo-coo for coca puffs” when it comes to consuming methamphetamines. Out of 20,000 offenses, approximately thirty three percent were methamphetamine drug offenses. As issue jab delved more deep in to the data we come to the conclusion that it is safer for a woman to do drugs and not get an offense than it is for a man. We come to this conclusion because out of 20,000 drug offenses documented by the USSC, only 3,098 were women. Could it be women are not obvious in appearance in terms of being “strung out,” or looking deteriorated from drug use? Are women smarter than men when it comes to dodging law enforcement? Can we say that women are less likely to use drugs? What is alarming from the study is that almost half of the female offenses were for methamphetamines. Are women more excited about methamphetamines than they are about Oprah, Hillary or the View? This data points to yes. In the 1980’s there was a rumor that “cocaine will make a woman horny,” in the 2000 and teen’s we can start another rumor, “methamphetamines will make a woman most likely catch a drug offense.” Of the 20,000 drug offenses reported, women were least likely to have a drug offense for crack cocaine but more likely to offend for powdered cocaine.

It’s alarming what was interpreted and found from the statistics given by the United States Sentencing Commission. The report from the USSC showed raw data of the number of drug offenses, with the gender associated and we at issuejab.com made an issue on what we thought the numbers meant to us.

Are New York City Housing Projects becoming Authoritarian?

HUD’s new smoke free law has banned all smoking in New York City Public housing units.

From herein, smoking is not permitted anywhere in or around the projects a.k.a public housing. This law includes a ban on individuals who are smoking in the comfort and security of their own apartment. What is most concerning about this new law is the logistics of how it will be enforced. With what evidence can an officer charge someone for smoking in their apartment without a warrant to go in the apartment and smell the smoke or see someone smoking? Another concern is, will people be falsely accused and reprimanded per these antismoking laws to be enforced in New York City public housing projects?

The only way one can imagine this rule being enforced is by an authoritarian kind of tactic of walking the halls and knocking on doors to inquire. This can possibly be a very dangerous situation for police officers and residents, whose makeup is mostly minorities. Can accusations of smoking lead to false tickets or arrests? Moreover, can these simple and unnecessary enforcements lead to an argument between citizens and authorities that cause someone to get hurt as a resident must respect authority but may be upset at the pettiness of the HUD anti-smoking law?

These kinds of enforcements remind me of when Sandra Bland was arrested and then mysteriously died in custody. Could there be a situation where someone who is rough in their appearance, who possibly is not welcomed anywhere other than the front yard of their project building be harassed for a simple cigarette which leads to an unfortunate result? This law may be possibly too much of an oppressive control on the public. Could the accusation of smoking a cigarette be an excuse for a police man to harass a minority? These are issues that raise concern when dealing with the HUD anti-smoking laws.

This law feels very authoritarian and draconian. To control what goes on in someone’s household is undemocratic to say the least, communist to say the most. Something else to consider is that smokers have rights and what smokers do in their own home is their own right.

In defense of HUD, they state that 32 million dollars will be saved in fire damage, however, are those fire damages from lit cigarettes? Also, the HUD claims that 300 million dollars will be saved in medical fees due to not living with smokers, however, people who are underprivileged tend to also have a diabetic problems as well as stress related illnesses and they all do not smoke.

When we interviewed someone from the George Washington Houses in the Bronx, who did not want to give his last name he said: “This is nothing but barbaric and authoritarian. We don’t need big brother to watch us like this! I just came out of the homeless shelter, life is not a picnic; in addition I can’t find a job! From there, I went in to the projects from the homeless shelter. I was in there with the worst. But now I can’t smoke in my own home? This aint Russia!! After what I been through, I need a smoke or a beer or something more!” (Timothy, public housing resident)

The poor will have to suffer more and be oppressed even more and an anti-smoking law that regulates what you do in your home is evidence of that.  This law can make New York City a lot of money in ticket revenue, but how much can New York City’s poor take? What made New York City great and something to invest is non-existent and what we’re left with is just a reason to move. Shame on New York City!

Obama Fart Scandal – Barack Obama’s brother Malik Obama farting on Live TV

Obama Fart Scandal: farting in an election season

To cut to the chase, someone farted not once but two times on the Sean Hannity Show when Malik Obama was a guest , you can hear it during: 5:38 and 6:16 of this video!!! This election has had everything: racism, rage, low blows and now farts. But who blew the chunks? Did Malik Obama fart? Did Sean Hannity Fart? Was it Roger Ailes in the neighboring county of where it was filmed? 

It was surprising to see Malik Obama on camera speaking out against his half-brother, President Barack Obama. The content of what Malik Obama was saying about his half-brother and the President of the United States was revealing and thought provoking. Also, I don’t believe I ever encountered a moment when a journalist would use the family of the president as a pawn. Many can argue that it was disgraceful and disrespectful.

However, what shocked me the most is that someone farted two times on live television during the Sean Hannity show. I can’t point fingers but I will say the most obvious and prime farter suspects are either: Malik Obama or Sean Hannity because of the impact the sound made which leads me to believe this was from someone’s butt close to boom microphone. It could have easily been the stage crew but seeing the facial expressions starting from 5: 38 in this video all arrows point to Malik Obama, but your innocent until proven guilty.

It may have well been Sean Hannity. I would not put it past Sean Hannity to fart on live TV inconspicuously. Issue Jab is still on the case……It is right to mention that we are not detectives. Sean Hannity was very cool and not bothered by the first fart, which may not have been Malik Obama and that fart could have been courtesy of Fox News staff or another Sean Hannity exclusive that like usual comes out of his ass. However, and with all due respect, the second fart was in the possession of the colon of Malik Obama. Listen closely to the second fart while Malik Obama is talking, the way he said “business empire,” when he was praising Donald Trump, it may have accidentally made him slip a fart out.

Did Malik Obama fart on live TV?

If Malik Obama farted, which I believe he may have the second time at 6:10 in this video, it is acceptable. Why? Well, he is not usually in the public eye and he may have been nervous. Being interviewed on TV is like the interview of your life for a high paying job, its nerve racking. With that in mind perhaps Malik Obama farted! Now, the other one in the beginning, I think that its courtesy of fox news, whether they were real biological farts or sound effects which I think not, SOMEONE FARTED ON LIVE TELEVISION, DURING THE SEAN HANNITY SHOW ON FOX.

Which Countries Have The Least Debt?

There are three countries listed that do not have debt what so ever. These three countries are: Brunei, Macau, and Liechtenstein. In other words while the United States owes billions of dollars and Greece’s debt is causing that country to fall apart, there are three countries with $0.00 in debt, which are: Brunei, Macau, and Liechtenstein.

A little bit about the countries with the least debt in the world:

Brunei: This country is run by the same family for centuries located in the Southern Asian area of the world. It is a majority Muslim country that is oil rich and smaller than Delaware. This country is rarely bothered by earthquakes and flooding.

Liechtenstein: A European nation with 3.2% unemployment, located between Austria and Switzerland has a rich history from its beginnings as a Holy Roman Empire in 1719, to being included in chapters of the Napoleonic wars, to gaining their independence. Ever since World War Two, this country has a very low tax rate up to present date and this has fueled economic growth. When faced with a financial controversy of money laundering, they immediately addressed it with a treaty. It is said that this country is one of the only two in the world to be land locked. The terrain is mostly mountainous. With a country as small as Washington DC and no resources what so ever, their nurturing of an enterprise economy is certainly proving to be a healthy debt free economy.

Macau: Technically part of China, Macau enjoys the feeling of autonomy and the feeling of being a debt free country. They have an agreement with China to be one country and two systems, they have control of their destiny but they are limited to foreign affairs and defense issues, which are dealt with by China, other than that Macau is its own nation. This country located in Eastern Asia that borders the South China Sea is a tourism rich nation reliant upon its casinos. With the billions of Chinese neighboring with the other Asian countries its revenues derive from their casino and gaming revenues that their tourism generates from its neighbors.
