Default re:

you guys should also understand Bush is not a true conservative, and I do not support him in any way at all besides the token respect you should offer your President.

(you wouldn't curse him out and punch him in the face if you had to visit the White House would you? but you don't have to like him)

If drugs of abuse could be produced legally, and in a controlled manner, the incredible profits that they generate would plummet. All the bribes, smuggling operations, mid-level distributors that cut the produce, low-level street dealers who dilute it even further, leading to unreliable "consumer goods" if you will, probably causing many un-needed overdoses. Instead, it could be pure cheap 1mg/ml Heroin, from AstraZeneca, straight into your eyeballs, if you so choose. International pharmaceutical companies, for all their other evils, are much less likely to raise a massive revolutionary army like all the other narco-funded groups of thugs in Colombia, Afghanistan, Burma, and so on.

Drug addicts who can get their fix for ten bucks a day would be less inclined to rob people and burglarize their homes than ones who have to pay ten or fifty times that to stay "healthy".

We seemingly didn't learn anything from that unfortunate period of prohibition which gave organized crime a real boost back in the 1920s.

But, it's not ever going to happen the way I'd like it. The inertia behind drug laws is just too strong, and so many people in law enforcement would be left on the streets.

Debating the war on drugs is so depressing and futile and I should stop.

And, no, even though I have a serious dislike for Bush II, I wouldn't punch him for two reasons:

1) I'm really nice and prefer not to hurt anybody.
2) I'd get hurt back really, really horribly.

no but it has nothing to do with respect. it has to do with 2 things: 1, the fact that I'd get sent to jail, the press would never hear about it, and I would be tortured overseas by the CIA, and 2, because even if it did leak to the press, it would just create sympahy for Bush and we don't need Bush's team of corruption getting reelected with a different figurehead.

Bush has done nothing to deserve respect. nothing. at all. he's made political satirists obsolete since 2000. he's an absolute joke and it mystifies me how conservatives who are proud of their country can support a president who has shamed their country so thoroughly. he can't even string more than 4 words together for chrissakes. he's a walking joke. anyone with pride in this country should be ashamed of him... and yet they're not. I don't get it. I, personally, don't have any emotional attachment to this country, I don't like Bush because I disagree with most his politics and his team is corrupt, but I love him cause he's a walking joke machine and I like to poke fun at things that deserve it.

you read "token respect" as "respect"


i simply mean token respect in the connotation of "respecting your elders."


you don't have to like old people, but if you have any decency in a public setting, you will call them Sir and so on.

if not, then well you're just rude.


that's what I mean. in a public arena its all about public relations (as redundant as that may sound)

True and true. Not sure the value of the test. I could have told you that without it.
