Lately it's you- funny how people on the make for protection from a gaggle of nitwits they call a community never worry about being a weak advocate for their "cause".

Thanks.
It's pleasant to learn some people still have a sense of humor.
You might appreciate the value our founding fathers placed on ridicule, but to some I suppose it flies in the face of the anti-bullying craze.
In my experience, friendly people inspire friendly treatment.
If one is ridiculous, they should expect ridicule.

Well I treat bully’s as they treat others, so I am guilty I suppose.

I get through life with humor, and I always try and look at things from the perspective of others.

doing that I have found that there is no black and white as painted so often in the more biased media, be it Faux or MSNBC

There are usually at least 2 sides to any problem, and often more than 2

Could there be another melt down in the works for two and a half men?

Nineteen-year-old Angus T. Jones, who plays Jake, says in a videotaped testimonial for the "religious group Forerunner Chronicles."

That he doesn't want to be on it, and that he considers the risque CBS sitcom to be "filthy.

Yes, yes. And everyone is put through their paces while interested parties do their very best to stimulate the most binary reactionary reflexes, up or down, left or right, yes or no, in or out, home or away, pro or con, us or them.....blah, blah, blah.

You'd think people might see the value of exploring a little commonality.

The horrifying ordeal endured by the African American family in Yorba Linda, California tht wasw forced to move to safety because of the abuse heaped on them by unknown assilants brought back painful memories.

Curently there is a SkinHead styl person living in Glendora, California on Swain, who has a issue with minorities, he Glendora Police Department has been made aware of this person for a few years now and sill they let his lose to cause racists havoic in the neighborhood too.

I think he bailed- I mentioned Lester Grinspoon and at first he flailed around for another academic "expert". But who knows, maybe he dismissed himself to do a bit of reading.
It's unlikely but we can still hope.

I'm for it being legal but there is a lot of false information about it. More teens enter treatment each year with marijuana as the main substance that they abused. In 2004, 64% of teens were admitted for treatment for marijuana as their main drug of choice vs. 36% of all other substances including alcohol. Marijuana is addictive, as it meets the criteria for substance dependence
In a study reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, even a moderate dose of marijuana was shown to impair driving performance, since it affects alertness, concentration, perception coordination and reaction time – essential skills required for safe driving. Researchers also found that 17%(1 in 5) of crash victims under the age of 18 tested positive for marijuana.
What did the High times study find?

Researchers have found that heavy marijuana use may be especially problematic during teens’ peak learning years, when the brain is still developing, since smoking pot can impair your ability to concentrate and retain information. This can cause poor academic performance. You might think you’re doing well in school – but you’ll never know if smoking pot is inhibiting your true academic potential.

Dear Potheads: If weed apparently CURES cancer...?
As a lot of you state (as you're uneducated) why are we still using chemo for cancer? Why not give patients a giant bag of weed and send them on their merry way?
Weed does not cure cancer, it's only lessens the pain!

I'm basically saying stop making up/exaggerating facts about weed to try and get it legal.... The amount of times I see people saying it CURES cancer is unbelievable,

If you want it legal because you like the "high" feeling, then tell the truth, don't make it out to be the cure for the world.

How about, sort of....I mean, I went to church- then I stopped and repented. Does that count? Am I free?
Because for all the spiritual practice in the world, not too many people seem to be getting any better at it.
Then, on further consideration, you often know tolerance by the impression it isn't making, and the peaceful by the space they leave.

FOX gets it between the eyes, Fox is operating as a wing of the Republican Party.

When you watch FOX news, you have to forget the IQ level at which this has been created by and what level it's marketed towards.

when teens enter drug rehab for weed, it is usually because they have really uptight parents...

i remember a trio from HS who got shipped away to the "straight" program....they came back virtual zombies....

with much cultural reajustment to do.

i cant say it was the worst thing thing for them??

but then agian??

It is "gateway" personalities

not gate way drugs...

fighting drugs to treat people is compleatly the wrong approach.

education and rehabilitation I say!!

not incarceration and reassimilation into the culture of hard drugs(prison)

that is the basic mistake that all powers who are fighting a prohibition war, make...with california now, as the obvious exception, with prop 36 and penal code 1000, defering drug offenders from prison.

europe has shown us that rates of drug use fall when they are decriminalized....not the other way around.

but you dont like europe....do you reichardo??

there is just too much anti-nazi sentiment there.(sarc)

the amercian west is a perfect place for your drug related bigotry...

blaming the drugs themselves, is an easy cop out from tackling a much harder problem.

it is easier to lock people up that educate them.
