It's amazing what the police state can do.
It's only just begun, and im afraid you ain't seen nothing yet.
As the country progresses out of the dark ages, and sentiment along with laws, continue their movement in a slightly more sane direction wrt marijuana, the police state will have to take out their sadistry on everyone else. Every incremental step they are forced to give up on the war against black people snd marijuana, will have to be substituted wigh savageries carried out on the rest of the population. Either that, or they go extinct. Try to fathom for a minute, the gigantic network of government expenditures (and the incomes it provides) thats grown up around marijuana prohibition,,,, judges, lawyers, unionized prison guards, probation officers, police state on all levels etc. now take away the demand, for that side of the marijuana prohibition trade, and what's left is literally millions of people (govt patronage network ) who suddenly have no income stream, and nothing of value to offer the economy. Short of creating demand for their worthless services, all they are left with is survival instincts, harassing, assualting, and thieving from the productive part of the economy thats left in their wAke.
We all should have a healthy fear of them
Minutes later, while Heuser was on his way back to his room, a DEA agent looked him in the eye and said, "You Oregonians may think that the green leafy stuff is harmless, but I know from my job that it kills people every day."
Welcome to peak stupidity
But, but, but, what about that whole "the blacks gonna be all stoned as a kite, raping all our white women" problem??!!!???
How hard would it be to sew a patch like that onto your moulage kit?
I don't know what the hell you guys are looking at but that sure looks like a moulage kit to me
How come the glorious free market hasn't rectified housing and medical costs? Especially housing.
Well, at least we gave it a try, though, right?
Twenty years ago, you were allowed to be healthy, go without insurance, find need for some healthcare services, and show up at the dr office with a small portion of the days wages in trade.
Which was more free markety, now or then?
The blue and red lines are so large that it rules out a secular cause. Rent seeking and corruption are the only explanation.
Which is why I don't see any of the small tweakings to the system as any type of solution.
The democrats voting bloc with triple digit IQs, all agree that it's all the Republicans fault. That if only theyd allow them to tack a few more % points on to upper incomes, it'd all work itself out. Double the minimum wage, and we're full speed to utopia.
I don't buy it. Theres never any explanation as to how the systemic problems change from this. The politically privileged ownership classes still own everything and will have no barriers to continuing to take every last cent. There is no market equilibrium, only maximum pain
Some posters here have severe mental illness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Some" posters, "here"?!!?
By some, you mean most, judging by all the diagnosis that you've dished out. And by here, you mean the internet discussion forum you live at all day, every day?
What does that say, about you!!!!?
You don't post truth. You post sewage. You lie, you misrepresent, you troll, and you derail threads. You're a disgusting little shit and you should have been terminated from this board years ago.
Someone is reflecting again
And look at you! Just like a little lab rat getting your little pepper all worked up over the mere thought of shit. They're pushing your buttons again!!!!!
I know, i know
I love his support for a national holiday so that everyone can be able to vote. Why dont we have this already??
Science is finally catching up with what most any average or better female has been able to do since the advent of our species
Lol my comment #5 got a dislike already
Right here where I live, the state gives "free" breakfasts to school children, even in the summer, something unheard of when I was growing up. It's free only in the sense that the ones who received the benefit didn't pay for it.
Just who the fuck do these seven and eight years old, lazy, entitled kids think they are?!! There's no, free lunch, but now somehow theres free breakfast?!! This will be the death of the nation.
That and the decoupling from Christianity. How would anyone ever know right from wrong, without all the pee-pee touching priests there to show them the righteous path!?!
I mean, we're going to wind up a nation of sexual degenerates if more people dont start practicing Christianity, and following the way of the lord
Give us your sick, your tired, and most importantly, your young boys, so the purveyors of purity can enforce their sick homosexual pedo ways on tgem. That'll set um straight!
Here's what not to do, little timmy. Dont coerce young boys into pedo anal rape and blow jobs. Just like, for instance, what I'm going to do to you right now! Else God will smite you!!!
The greatest form of mind control, is self-censorship of ideas.
What a shame, that the only hope for democrats to gain fans, is for the elderly to be retired.
It's impossible to think outside of the box, when you're the box
I doubt it would devolve to just conservatives voting against liberals
Where are these Bigfoot?
Can you define what makes a liberal a liberal, and a conservative, a conservative, and then maybe list some posters that fall into these camps?
how to deal with that without censoring anyone?
Prohibiting people from yelling fire in a crowded movie theater, is not censorship
Prohibiting trolls from shitting up the forum is not censorship either
Untested ideas are blather. You mutts should be thanking me and occasionally might even experience momentary sentientence.
What is sentientence?
Is that some sort of spanglish slang, referring to syntax sentience?
Patnet isn't dead, its just been overrun by the walking dead zombie dumb fucks Call it Crazy and indiginous, the absolutely worthless nonsense they post all day everyday, and the lot of idiots they troll into responding to their nonsense.
Cept cant splain that, Say's law and all, mutts.
Or 16 years ago instead of eight. The things you buy are relative to the wages that the available jobs pay
In 1999 i was graduating high school. Had a job at a pizza shop making 12$ an hour, @ 40 hours per week. Thats some relatively unskilled labor. Compared to today, i just heard an electrician friend say that he was considering giving up sub contracting and going to work for a company that starts at 12$ per hour.
Now, you need gasoline to get to work
In 1999, there was no subsidized ethanol watering the gas down, and it costed 0.89 cents. Today, pure gas is about 4x as much per gallon and i have to take a long drive to get it.
I dont smoke cigarettes, but they were $1.80 in 99, and are now 4x as much. Many hourly wage people do
I dont use any health care services, but in 99 i paid 0$ for insurance, and if i wanted a physical, one could be acquired for between 25$-40$ cash. Now, im forced to pay $5600 per year to the evil corporations for their shareholders, marketing, overhead, company cars, and junkets, executive pay and bonuses and whatever the hell else they decide to waste their lootings on. Having that insanely expensive and totally worthless and unnecessary insurance, I recently went for a simple physical and it cost me $150.
I rented a 1br first floor apt in the city for $350 per month, which now costs at least 600$. The utilities that accompany are all double.
I think I recall my savings account paying north of 6%, compared to the 0.01% they offer now.
Unfortunately, we’ve gotten so used to being dictated to by government agents, bureaucrats and militarized police alike that we’ve forgotten that WE are supposed to be the ones calling the shots and determining what is just, reasonable and necessary.
Well, I know this isn't YOUR article!!! Because you sure as the sun will rise, have defended unchecked power for the fascist police state
It's those of you that demand an even bigger, unionized gang of government thugs, terrorizing the streets, that are the problem
and purchased insurance so that he could have had preventative care, he probably wouldn't be in the shape that he is in.
Its sad that those that ape this type of nonsense dont realize how stupid it sounds
Read what you posted, that i quoted, again. Not sure why you replied with the greater than 50% response, the numbers aren't adding up here
But yea, i think pretty much all cops are bad cops.
Why not make a list of all the instances where the good cops, turned in the bad cops. There should be plenty of examples, if the majority are good, and only a small minority are bad.
What is your personal experience with on duty police?
Let the kids learn from home on the computer
But yea, definitely long overdue to break the mold of having all kids of same age be in same grade. Its a crime against those of us capable of completing the k-12 curriculum in eight years to drag it out for 13 just so the rest of the dolts arent made to feel as stupid as they are. Hell, its a crime against humanity
