Oh no! I won't we able to play pretend-soldier, anymore.

I won't be able to arm myself against the marauding bands of thieves who will try to steal my food supplied in the coming apocalypse!

When the Chinese invade America (and its going to happen, take my word for it) I won't be able to assemble a rag-tag army of freedom-fighters like they did in Red Dawn.

When a burgalar enters my home, I won't be able to panic and spray bullets all over my house, accidentlly shooting my family.

Yeah, a .38 revolver just insn't enough personal protection; I mean, I get into long, protracted gun-fights all the time, so I need a military-grade assault weapon...and a flamethrower.

While paragraphs one and three are realistic, numbers two and four demonstrate that you have been brainwashed not just by those who believe that certain guns should be left to the military and certain ones for civilians, but rather the opinion that NO guns should be permitted for civilians ESPECIALLY if they admit that they want one for non-hunting security purposes.

I don't own an assault rifle, but DO have a shoulder-stockless Mossberg pump-action shotgun EXCLUSIVELY for this latter purpose, and I GUARANTEE that if any Dicks and Perrys of "In Cold Blood" fame break into my house when I'm there, OR if the 1992 L.A. riots ever come to MY street (both less likely because I now live more rural than before, AND our new house looks plebian compared to our next-door millionaire neighbor!), I'M sure-as-hell going to put self-and-family preservation over ANY stupid Jainist/pacifist sentiments, and if doing so suddenly becomes illegal, well, I'm sure YOU saw either "Deliverance" or "Prince of Tides" before, and our new 'micro-farm' could sure use free fertilizer!

BTW, did you know that the Jainists adopted the SWASTIKA as part of their design logo as recently as 1974, and NOT before the Third Reich? Kinda fits-in with Adolf Hitler being a vegetarian, doesn't it?!(Wikipedia it if you don't believe me).

Atta boy, blame all unique attitudes on "that strange, evil, sinister avatar-of-Satan, mar-i-joo-ana stuff". And by 'unique' I mean someone who WASN'T brainwashed by EITHER the 'Oral Moronity' on the Right OR freak-a-zoids-from-Andromeda on the cultural Left side of the spectrum.

Yes, even the most rabid anti-gunners are targeting "just assault rifles" now when the news cameras are on them, but if most of them had their way (1) Hunting and perhaps even agri-omnivorism would be outlawed, and (2) Said hunters would not even be allowed to store their shotguns or limited-capacity hunting rifles in their homes because this would "encourage vigilantism" (meaning ordinary self-defense to normal, psychologically-balanced folks!) in the event of a violent home invasion.

These particular liberals actually believe that "it's better to be a victim" than to employ the use of firearms in self-defense, and my point was that "when the right of self-defense itself is outlawed, ordinary folks will become outlaws themselves rather than go to prison for reporting the incident".

I also forgot to mention "Legends of the Fall" with Brad Pitt. LOVE the ending when they blow all those crooked cops away and then BURY them on the farm ... especially Anthony Hopkins blasting away with that short, double-barreled 12 gauge 'coach
gun'... YEE-HAH!

I've said my piece, so you can now go back to Rick Santorum-ville and blame EVERYTHING our culture's done wrong since the post-WW2 era on greater acceptance of marijuana and Dr. Alfred Kinsey by those "degenerate, commie beatniks" who popularized both back then even before the 60s hippies STOLE the show!!!

Seriously, dude...you've fried your brain. Your train-of-thought has run off the track, and you ramble like a meth-addict.

Go back to your couch and stare at your lava-lamp for a while.

I merely relay the way mainstream, contemporary liberals and conservatives tend to ALLEGEDLY think, and I don't have a lava lamp or ANY 'typical' hippie paraphrenalia because I'm a NORMAL person who's LONG "used to pot" and no longer associates it with 'psychedelic culture' the way that I was brainwashed to do.

Since YOU have been, why don't you go back to watching the drug-only episodes of the 1960s "Dragnet" show ... YOU'LL feel right at home!

Lava lamps have made a limited comeback.Lots of my friends have them. They're not my thing though,they look like globs of colored mayo floating in colored oil,to me. Yuck.

Is that you, PBK666? All I meant was that in retrospect it was wrong to place marijuana / cannabis in the same category as 'major hallucinogens' like LSD, peyote/mescaline, psilocybin mushrooms, etc.- which I have done many times - because they're really SO different not just in regards to "acute" effects, but so-called 'secondary' ones too ... i.e. the way they can alter a persons perceptions about even everyday things and societal habits.

I remind those who lump them together into the 60s mindset that marijuana use right here in "western" America (not some "Buddhist" country!) preceded The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Greatful Dead, etc. by decades to at least around the time that jazz music was first budding in the pre-Dixie 'Ragtime' era!

After WW 2 it migrated into white America - although discreetly, and not as openly as it did in the 60s and 70s - and was popularized by the pre-hippie 'beat' generation. It went "most mainstream" (meaning its users started looking "normal" and not social stereotypes of this-or-that type) in the 70s, but after Nancy Reagan that all ended and by the 80s and 90s the legalization movement was more-or-less invaded by both New Agey hippies (e.g. smug, militant uber-vegans) and the 'bad boy' gansta-rapper element.

Thankfully, if Washington and Colorado are trends to be repeated elsewhere, we will then revert back to the 70s mindset about it so-to-speak, and those adults who want to procure "recreational" (I HATE that word in this context - it's SO juvenile in itself in the same way that the very word "gay" SOUNDS flamboyant and effeminate!) marijuana will (1) no longer have to go to clandestine sources to get it and (2) will no longer have to associate with either Castaways-from-Goofigan's Island NOR the kind whose favorite T-Shirts say: "I Like to Fight" or perhaps "Hate IS a Family Value" to likewise have access to this wonderful herb.

Yeah it's me.

I agree. It is my understanding that President Nixon is the one who had pot declared illegal via some very dubious testing,because he wanted to demonize the hippies.
I like a j every now and then. I'm kind of high strung at times and it calms me plus it helps my insomnia. I'd rather use weed than those horrible addictive pills the docs prescribe. I will not touch them.
Alcohol and tobacco are legal and they're a lot more harmful than pot.
