I'm sure Paula Fitzpatrick would thank you for the free advertising if she had the time. Sounds like she's got better things to do though. (Mar 16, 2011 | post #6)
Chill GMS. It's the same circular logic we're used to. THose who can see it will see it. Those who believe it will refuse to see until their injury is self-inflicted. Calling drug-users irresponsible and blaming them for societies problem is like a pedophile priest preaching the devil, burning the mother at the stake for witchcraft and benevolently taking care of her children. Because Unicorns are real. (Mar 16, 2011 | post #25)
You must be the guy he was hijacking wifi from. Although I rather agree with you. Seems to me better just to let people use drugs and off themselves if they can't handle it so that those who really want help and to take care of themselves, their lives and their children can seek help without fear of persecution for a mental and social problem that's treated as a criminal problem for the purposes of economic disparity and inflation of an overstated 'problem' that has existed since before we can remember. Seems to me to be idolatry to be personifying drugs as responsible for our actions rather than own up to the fact that we've squandered this inheritance. (Mar 16, 2011 | post #10)
Arguably, indeed. At least they don't charge $5/cup (Venti? LOL!) like starbucks will. Truth be told, I miss the atmosphere of the Blue Lion back in the day and I doubt anything can replace those childhood memories. All that history in your face made our D&D games so rich and exciting. It might have been the coffee though. Despite that nostalgia I feel good knowing the establishment is in good hands with the the Pierceton-native Balkes. I had the pleasure of knowing them growing up in this community and they've been good people as long as I've known them and the place still feels cozy, welcoming and friendly with good coffee and atmosphere. The only problem is that every time I go the coffee is just so good I have a little to much sometimes. (Nov 3, 2010 | post #1)
HA! I get it! That's funny. You're pretending to give a shit about real social problems while actually being a hatemonger who doesn't give a rats ass. (Nov 1, 2010 | post #3)
Yeah well I can think of one good idea. Cut back Military spending. (Oct 16, 2010 | post #13)
Prohibition has not in the past 100 years 'built a better community' so by what kind of asinine logic do you think that flaunting your narcissistic, self-righteous, intolerant hate mongering will ever build a better community? Better communities are built on love, not hate and such abstract phenomenons of humanity don't give two shits about whatever your skeletons are because you're human and that means you fuck up too. Last time I checked, EVERYONE's shit in WL stinks to high hell from breathing the polluted vapors off that nasty lake. (Oct 16, 2010 | post #3)
These are the issues that will determine the world our children live in and all we can do is partisan bash like rats in a hateful maze. I've seen children move through 4chan with more troll-fu than you guys. I'm ashamed to say I grew up here. (Oct 16, 2010 | post #1)
I thought he was 12? Now they're considering his statements to police admissable despite their failure to mirandize him? and he's being tried as an adult? wtf...? (Oct 16, 2010 | post #1)
Ha..I watched that bust go down at Valley Forge in the middle of the night. What's funny is that Page Himes (Sp?) the manager of these section 8 apartment, tried to say they weren't making meth and only had supplies because housing regulations required her to clear out all surrounding apartments and have them ALL cleaned because of a meth lab bust.

Incidentally, it occurs to me to mention that I know a guy who had onset schizophrenia from marijuana consumption. So I'm not marginalizing or denying the phenomenon by ANY means. I'm pretty sure when they get the data in it will look like this 1. Under 16 at time of first consumption. 2. Close Kin with Schizophrenia 3. Prolonged and/or current mental or emotional abuse. Tbh, physical abuse isn't necessary at all (having become present after onset in this case). (Oct 15, 2010 | post #19)
Not quite. The most they're ever come up with is to show that a small percentile of schitzophrenics with significant predisposition have onset with consumption. There is no evidence whatsoever that marijuana causes schitzophrenia. At best, this is statistical ninjitsu. At worse, if you have a family of schitzophrenics... ...well you're just fucked anyway.

I'm an official/unperscri bed/self-medicatin g medical marijuana user of ten years diagnosed with Bi-Polar type I & Asperger's. Despite a lifetime struggle with a constant compulsion to violence I have discarded ineffective pharmacuetical options for over a decade now and I have smoked weed for just over seven of those. When I'm stoned people understand me and don't feel threatened by my nuerotic demeanor. I honestly feel without the pot that I can't be sure I wouldn't have given in to the psychotic 'blaze of glory' combine/vt/etc. type DBC scenarios. So I have, with the aid of marijuana prevented myself from being the physical/violent danger to society that I actually am. But if we're to consider other non-physical and non-violent threats then of, I am the most dangerous man, according to Mencken. For in my love of the herb that saved my mind and my life, Ihave discovered the occulted secrets and realized that my government is lying. I have not the will nor the desire to suppress the compulsion to crusade against these liars. So, as per this brilliant man's astute observation...I must admit that while not entirely responsible for my ability to think for myself, it has taken away the distraction that prevented me from doing so and created the menace to society that I am/will be. And that's the reality of my life as I struggle against paranoia (Even though I am without fear as a part of my neurotic condition). Of course, I can't help but think that I wouldn't be so damn paranoid or nuetoric if the goddamned government would just stop lying to us an mind it's own fucking business. "The most dangerous man, to any government, is the man who Is able to think things out for himself, without regard to the prevailing superstitions and taboos. Almost invariably he comes to the conclusion that the government he lives under is dishonest, insane and intolerable, and so, if he is romantic, he tries to change it. And if he is not romantic personally, he is apt to spread discontent among those who are." -H.L. Mencken (Oct 15, 2010 | post #3)
Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now. -Thomas Jefferson (Oct 15, 2010 | post #15)
