Atheism requires as much faith as religion? bearvspuma : The only problem with this rationalization is that ita s assuming all athiests are so because theya re intelligent in the ways of science and reasoning and all people that believe in a form of god are unintelligent.

This is the first time that you have acknowledged any distinction between the various illicit drugs after a half dozen posts decrying the use of "drugs," including a litany of songs the first of which was about "reefer," and a derogatory comment about its users. This was your post, wasn't it?:

Cab Calloway did that in 1932.

There were lots of songs about drugs in the 20's and 30's.
Not very flattering about the users of them.
You also posted the following when I said that pot was safe, and that I didn't trust government reports about it:

Those links I posted about arrested development were done by professionals and are accepted as fact by the medical community and government. You have professed accepting such studies and findings as fact in everything else but in your own experience. You said you don't believe those things. I should not have to say anything more.

I agree.

What do you suppose the corporatocracy - corporate America and its puppet government - are doing about it? Do you think that is is as appalled as you, and is taking corrective action to put an end to this profitable but unjust practice?

These are the kinds of things that Americans need to take heed of. These are the clues that old ways of thinking need to be reexamined. It was reasonable to trust our government when we were young.

Americans are aware that there is an enemy afoot, but they have been misled into thinking that it is one of the political parties. Whether you identify with the Republicans or the Democrats, each citizen needs to notice that it is his entire government that is the problem. Both parties support this practice, along with dozens more policies like it, such as the war on drugs and the war on terror, which are also more profitable than just or reasonable.

This aligns you with the Tea Party movement.

Yeah, low blow.

Couldn't resist.

There are a couple of prisons over here that may move to private management... but these same companies have been found to be mischarging the government for monitoring tagged individuals who are no longer tagged (some are even dead).

These flippant fraudsters get away with it far more than serious fraudsters. Perhaps because there is no flippant fraud office to investigate.

Thatís a problem with you education then, luckily if you set you mind to it then perhaps you are capable of better things.
Consider this step one of that slow and long slope.
Thanks a million, Christine.

Tell me, along the same lines of my education, can I drive to the UK, or does getting there require a plane or a boat?

I hope you understand how much I appreciate your help.

You were spouting the druggie excuse bullshit.

I'm not inexperienced with drugs and the people that are addicted to them.

Wanna hear a sad story?

I was TDY at Ft Gordon, GA in the mid-70's. I went home on leave to Ft, Huachuca, AZ, which is about 1900 miles away. There was good pot very cheap available in AZ. Had this lovely green stuff that cost $10, that's ten, a baggie. More than an ounce, almost the whole baggie.

I drove back to GA with two of them. I get to the turn to the front gate of the post and I see the drug dogs at the guard post.

Holy fucking shit!!

I decide not to enter at that time and went on down the road until I hit a stretch with no development and very light traffic. I pull off, open the passenger window, and chunk my stash out the window and into the high weeds, then drive off. Almost crying. But better than getting caught with a few ounces of pot back in that time, especially on a military installation.

There is no doubt in my mind there was a very, very happy prison road gang member that found it later. A nice fully stuffed leather tobacco pouch with papers.

Sniff...still brings tears to my eyes.

It is not safe in the body chemistry of teenagers or younger. They are still developing.

You are saying it is. Science says it is not. Human experience also says it is not.

You may have a problem driving through the Atlantic puddle but it may be worth a try. Feel free to experiment and learn.

I believe I now exactly how much you appreciate it.

Ft. Gordon?

Were you in the Signal Corps?

I spent some time near Ft. Benning.

Those boys could get some good dope.

Airborne jumpers thought they were tough. Mopped up a few bars with them.

Sometimes you don't have to read an entire book to figure that out.
You just have to observe the people who have.

Golly gee whiz, I wonder where they got that opinion from.

I'm stumped.

Oh. So going to the UK from here requires crossing the Atlantic.

Thanks a million...pounds.

(Notice how I cleverly worked my previous lesson into the statement?)

A flower creates pollen, a bee will collect the pollen and scatter it about thus pollinating other flowers of the same type and continuing the cycle, is that not purpose?
