Yes, eating pot is enough to get anybody sick. I much prefer smoking it, not that it is that much more healthy.
As far as that Spike Sucker who goes to work everyday, thanks to you because you are paying my social security too. I'm a retired hippie and by the time you get here don't expect much money to be available for your own SS. If you keep electing Conservative fools like G Bush, you get what you deserve.
So conservatives are the reason for SS issues.. funny..

How much does the Coast Guard's rescue operations cost the non-boating taxpayers of America?

How much does federal relief cost the non-(living in an area prone to earthquakes, hurricans, tornadoes, or flooding) taxpaying Americans?

How much do farm subsidies cost the non-farming taxpaying Americans?
How much does social security cost the non-retired taxpaying Americans who don't need to be "forced to save"?

Your implied argument has no bearing on drug use. It is an argument against socialism. Don't confuse these two issues.
Now, I'm against both drugs and socialism, but for different reasons.

We don't need weak @$$ arguments against these things, as such bantering deter real arguments.

There's about 15 towns on F.I.
Only two very isolated towns are gay (Cherry Grove and The Pines). They are surrounded by miles of undeveloped beach of each side.
The other towns are far removed and very heterosexual family oriented places.
So when people say "F.I. is Gay"
it's like saying all of NYC is gay because of Greenwich Village.
Ocean Beach is not a gay town.
Get your facts STRAIGHT.

Oh - and fer the record - I'm bettin' twasn't nuthin' in that thar pot that sickened anybody. I'd be more inclined to think somebody just didn't wash their hands or utensils after handling the raw eggs.
Perhaps they were too high to remember? LOLOLOL.

Have you ever posted anything positive about anything or is it all just hate and insults?

Your knowledge of geography is appalling. Ocean Beach is no where near the Pines or Cherry Grove. Ocean Beach is not a gay community. Your homophobia seems so extreme that the truth probably doesn't register with you.
Molly, you are very odd.

Let me try again. I am SO HAPPY that some stoned middle aged people were medi-vaced from a beachside house, for emergency medical services, due to a tummy ache from bad pot brownies. It's a great thing!

Because at least twice in this blog you make reference to geography...and who cares? That isn't the focus of the comments. So, gay men frequent Fire Island, maybe not your little corner of it, but big deal? Maybe you hate gays, but not everyone does. They won't prey on your children, that is a myth.

funny, when i was a kid, there was a gay guy who worked at the school who was "dating" a student's teacher. wierd enough, but our parents tried to explain it to us and tell us not to worry about.

The guy then proceeded to molest several kids. Nice, eh? That's what tolerance and understanding will get you.

Well my children are adults so no one is preying on them except their spouses. I don't have a little corner of Fire Island, but wish I did. If I did I think Cherry Grove would be the place for me. The ferry for the Grove and the Pines is just a hundred yards or so from my door. Sunday tea dance used to be on my schedule every summer weekend. How did you possibly get the impression I might hate gays? I just pointed out to ignorant posters, who appeared homophobic, that not all of FI is gay.
