Stop and repent
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.

<quoted text>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. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =IiWpyWsMVPgXX
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.

You'd think people might see the value of exploring a little commonality.
I tend to hear a few more offers FOR the right to visit msnbc than the other way around...

our nations politics has moved right in general??? right??

and not the other way around?? the democrats had to COME back from the left, to attact more centrist voters and build coalitions with the middle to permanantly capture states like california.

socially the democrats kinda drifted left in the 70's.

and paid heavily (politically) for it thereafter.....

until Bill clinton showed up.

the height of that new deal/great society progressivism, in term of dollar amounts peaked long ago.

the corpoartions now just want that era we called the 20th century to be revoked....

GERMANY and BELGIUM: decriminalized. This means that possessing a small amount is ok, but puffing in public and selling weed is not.
SPAIN and FRANCE: smoking at home and the possession of a few grams will get you searched and checked out at worst.
ITALY: possession of more than a gram could result in a search and seizure.
GREECE: illegal. Really tough on weed.
DENMARK: illegal. Very uncool towards cannabis ever since authorities bulldozed the Christiana district in Copenhagen.
MACEDONIA: decriminalized.
SERBIA: looks away if it looks at all.
SLOVENIA: has no police (just kidding, but it is a relaxed place).
BOSNIA: illegal but tolerated.
CROATIA: illegal and not tolerated.
SCANDINVIAN COUNTRIES: laws are quite strict concerning weed and it is not advisable to get caught smoking

So worldly and well traveled- what a treat it is for the rest of us to see how learned and aquatinted with the foreign cultures you have become.
And here I was ready to call Xerox in the humbling discovery at your staggering ability not only to read the information but to copy it down-

Is anyone really surprised that you miss the point?
Seriously, it's not that likely you've been to any of these places.

I know and I like that, so do I.
But then, so does God.
Perhaps it's the definition and interpretation of the word "worship" that promises independence.
Honestly- the better you get at anything, would you rather people follow your example or just stay the same while following you around to kiss your ass.
How like our Lord are we all to become?
Historically, it's people doing the torturing, even when it's God being judged.(or judging.)

either way, I am not worried.

If one of the billions of Gods that man has believed in over the last few millions years happens to be true, and if I would be tortured for not worshiping it, then I am good as I wouldn’t worship that under any circumstances whatsoever anyway.

I am not judging any particular god, I am judging what people say about the supposedly "holy" being they happen to believe in.

Not about to worship what they are describing, even if it was true.( in fact particularly if it was true )

I hope I didn't come off as overly preachy or Sanctamonius, I took your comment to be about faith.
I suppose the words we choose and their subjective meaning makes all the difference.
I don't want to submit to meteors and solar flares, or hurricanes and earthquakes. And the claims of nature, large and small, from microbes to hordes of ignorant dumbasses all around- some problems and the challenges they present are a little beyond my scale.
How can you not describe it?
And yet we don't confuse the menu for the meal.
You're good, man.

Ceremonial position as honorary consul for South Korea because she allegedly tried to “peddle influence” and profit off business deals.
