Not that I'd like to see pot legalized, but I agree with you. I wouldn't wanna see Phillp-Morris take over and mass produce it.
But this is America, dude. If pot becomes legal, that will happen.
I don't smoke pot

But it would free up like 1/3rd of our jails so violent offenders aren't getting out early and a bunch of people who have lost their freedom over a drug less harmful than cigarettes or alcohol could have a life again

And it would add a bunch of jobs, although there may have to be some compromise on competing with clothing and paper although maybe we would gain there as I am guess we import most of that anyway?

What would be the downside of it legalized?

This isn't like some super-passionate issue for me. I just think it would make sense and given the things that are legal already, I don't see why millions of people should be locked up over it. Especially when it doesn't lead to violence or so many accidents like alcohol. Probably way less unplanned pregnancies too

The Lord has blessed me in this life. Standing in front of a crowd with thousands and thousands chearing. And God was there. It was a gift from God. The Lord gives and he takes away. Sitting on an interstate exit ramp for three days. Not a friend to be found, alone, or so I thought. God was there and he showed me what was around me. It was a gift from God. I have searched for God and found him in ways I could previously have never imagined. And God was there. I have run as far and as fast as I could till I found myself in the darkest place I think I have ever been. And into that dark place came the light. God was there and he showed me that he will never leave me or forsake me. God is worthy of my praise. I will be blessed, for I am blessed. Holy, Holy, Holy, is The Lord God Almighty. Who was, and is, and is to come. I am for ever grateful.
A GOD is here and there?
Whatever you say b-man
When is a GOD going to speak on your behalf?

A bunch of Christians telling Non-Christian theists (Yes one does include Zeus in her beliefs) that their deities don;t exist.

Even here, RA was the first to call my understanding of Tao as a bunch of crap.

BTW, the Christian deity has the same name in Latin as Zeus: "Deus Pater" (Zeus the Father) also know as Jupiter.

Get a clue.

Catcher has been waiting all day to try to jump on something
First he tries to get all political correct when bashing Christianity in general with his Yawehmart comment
Then the lawyer actually provides the ammo to get his own case shot down leaving himself no choice but to say nothing or keep arguing the legal definition is bad
Then he ignores Lawest being told to have sex with his mother and tries to say enough wasn't said to someone else!
The point of saying something to someone when they say something i have never heard them say before is to get them to acknowledge it was out of bounds with Lawest stepped up and did even though any guy can understand someone might lose their tempter when someone suggests they fornicate with their mother
But these "humanists' don't care whatsoever about actual right or wrong. Just how they can try to spin something. It is why Cathcer goes to one room and says let's not bring the usual sides to the recent natural disaster and then comes in here and bashes Christianity over it looking for a high five
These guys have no morals but they like to pretend when it is about others
Transparent and so expected
Morals aside, they seem like pretty good guys, Skom. So do you.

I see me reason, other than childish antics, that we all can't get along.

Try joking with them. And when they put down our religion, don't get offended. Chalk it up to a difference of opinion and move on.

Tell me a joke.

His homophobic mouth is vile. If gays are fair game, his mother is as well. We obviously have no intention of letting you determine the parameters of acceptable speech.

Screw his mother.

Any other gripes?

I wasn't demeaning anyone but you

I simply said some people here when they retire do things to stay active become greeters at walmart. I think that is a good thing. It keeps them active and social

I was laughing at what Mexico had to offer by contrast

And what does that have to do with my religion or your "screw your god" comment? That is just you again finding a way to justify your bigotry in a situation not even remotely connected to religion

Enough with the "we" you insecure irrelevant nobody

I already said neither one should be singled out for public rebuke as they were both at fault. But since your buddies tried to score points somehow off me telling a friend to reel it in, it became an issue because of their hypocrisy

Amazing.

You have no right to expect that if your opinion is unacceptable that you won't be backed into a corner. I'd defenestrate you.

Do yourselves a favor and wake up to the new reality. It doesn't include a privileged treatment of your Christian filth. We owe you nothing, and you have no leverage. If you don't like the angry blow back, keep your loathsome values to yourself.

Gods Grace continues washing us even when we do sin..That doesn't mean we continue to sin on purpose but when we do, Jesus is our mediator. Arguing is not Christ-like but that doesn't mean we are separated from God...NOT after what Jesus has DONE..

It honestly doesn't offend me, 99% of the time if someone is going to let what an anonymous stranger says to them over the Internet get to them then they got to work on getting some thicker skin. I just get bored of their constant hypocrisy. Joke, criticize, talk, debate, even argue...its all good to me. Adults that can't be honest about what they are doing though even in an anonymous forum just is hard for me to understand

a joke, a joke...ok, let's see:

How about:

"I never make mistakesÂ…I thought I did once; but I was wrong"

Or

A male driver is pulled over by a cop and the following conversation takes place:

Man: What's the problem officer?

Cop: You were going at least 75 in a 55 zone.

Man: No sir, I was going 65.

Wife: Oh Harry. You were going 80.(Man gives his wife a dirty look.)

Cop: I'm also going to give you a ticket for your broken tail light.

Man: Broken tail light? I didn't know about a broken tail light!

Wife: Oh Harry, you've known about that tail light for weeks.(Man gives his wife a dirty look.)

Cop: I'm also going to give you a citation for not wearing your seat belt.

Man: Oh, I just took it off when you were walking up to the car.

Wife: Oh Harry, you never wear your seat belt. Man: Shut your mouth, woman!

Cop: Ma'am, does your husband always talk to you this way?

Wife: No, only when he's drunk.

You are grasping at straws senor

I have simply made fun of where you live not the people in it, pointed out the contrast in things to do which I believe we have the much better end of the deal, and have made fun of you

You won't find anything in my comments degrading someone on their ethics or intelligence or character for being Mexican

You just are a bigot who desperately wants to point the focus off his bigotry, while continuing to say bigoted things

You are so stupid

For starters people don't have a right to presume anyone's opinion

And I said they don't have a right to demand they give it or explain it

If people offer it in public then of course it will be open to scrutiny

You obviously can't understand English that well either.
I'm guessing you probably advocate Lawlest's behaviour, right?
How moral of you.
Actually there is very little Lawest and I agree on ...if anything at all. Lawest is his own man, just as you are ...and makes up his own mind, just as do you.

And I agree with you, what you do and how you live is no one's business. That being said; why the hell can't you people just shut up about it? You run your mouth and make it the business of others, just like Coffee & Skom said. You only had to read a few pages and you knew the culture in here ...yet YOU ran your mouth in here anyway. You brought your laundry here.

You need to accept responsibility for your actions and quit whining.

I don't know G, but I don't recall ever seeing that exchange. But then between work and scrolling it's easy to miss something. I only saw the bit about Lawest mother because it was repeated several times. I had to go back and find the original post.

Don't get me wrong, there is no love lost between Coffee and I. On the other hand, I would say that Coffee has improved more than anyone else in here in my opinion.

I never told anyone to "fornicate" with their mother.
I said that I do not love my mother like I do my lover.
And so when someone claimed that was ironic, I asked if they did and called it sick in that case.
Go back to school and learn to read.
.. as a gay man, you've probably experienced bullying in the past so this is nothing new for you. In comparison, lesbians are given a relatively free pass. Unfair? You bet !!..

.. have you noticed females on this thread have not 'piled-on' or bullied either of us? If anything, they've been supportive. What does that tell you ??..
