First, it doesn't make sense to say "I'm not going to dignify your insults with a reply" AT THE END OF A REPLY!! This is the kind of thing I was referring to when I advised thinking it over and running it by someone else before you replied.
Secondly, it's just like a conservative to say there are alternatives to something, but not to provide any. Kinda reminds me of your constituents in Congress putting down Obama's Health Care Reform, but not providing their idea of a better alternative. It's this kind of "Arguing, just for the sake of Arguing, or not letting the other side have their way" that has turned this country into a joke on the international scene.
And then, you refer to the still-making-illegal-moonshine good ol' boys as your examples of how humans should be... huh?!!
It is true that if legalized there would still be illegal growers/sellers, but that would just be a percentage of the overall money exchanging hands because of this. The true benefit would be the tax dollars that are currently spent fighting this crime, and incarcerating said "criminals", instead being used to, oh I don't know, pay our teachers what they deserve, or fix our roads and bridges that are crumbling beneath us.
Lastly, you should feel special, because you are here in this country, where we are still able to freely state our opinions publicly and feel confident to disagree with others when the occasion arises.
God bless the ideals that our country was founded upon, now let's just pray for the intelligence to make this country prosper again.
You mean some "wicked smart" cops screwed up something that they've probably done at least 2-3 times a week for their entire careers?!
This is just another example of our tax dollars being wasted prosecuting a drug that is safer than cigarettes, less likely to invoke violence and destruction than alcohol, and more beneficial to those in pain than aspirin.
I really am ashamed to be part of today's world.
First of all, Barry explains who "you people" are immediately following the term... did you miss that, or just not get it?
Secondly, The State of Maine, including its' teachers, highway workers, community service workers, and such, would probably disagree with you on them not needing more funding.
Thirdly, is "the majority of the people" you refer to the same Conservite majority that got GWB elected, then uber-embarrassingly, re-elected?! If so, then am I ever glad to be in the minority... you know, those of us who actually have common sense and a general understanding of our places in this world.
I find it ironic, and a sad illustration of Arkansan intelligence, that you think marijuana makes our communities unsafe, but allowing everyone to carry guns makes them safer. As we Mainers like to say, "That's wicked smart!"
So before you think about replying, make sure you've had enough time to think, and hopefully consult someone with maybe more sparks firing in the ol' noggin', so as not to waste anymore of our time being insulted by the obvious degradation of intelligence in our society.
Now go polish your guns and drink your, apparently-to-you, non-mind-altering-and-pleasantly-legal whiskey and beer.
And to finish the subject line, "...just sit there and look pretty."
