Do I agree totally with everything the government does? I have said before I don't so please, stop puting words in my mouth, and what is it with you
and sheeps anyway... You name everyone that does not think like you as a sheep? What do you believe yourself to be a shepperd?
Definition of a Sheep by KayEm:
Those who don't have an original thought in their heads and only spout what they've been programmed with.
Those who defend laws and the status quo to the death no matter how asinine the laws or status quo may be and how many individuals they hurt.
Those who believe in "Group-Think" and completely forget about the individual.
Those who try desperately to "shepherd" other people back into line and do stupid things like calling the police or attacking them on message boards
when they refuse to conform to the 'majority's wishes and opinions.
Those who put , "what will other people/the neighbors/theboss" think above even their own loved ones feelings.
No, Muaddib, I do not consider myself a shepherd at all, in fact, I don't have any idea how you can even say that. I call any person a sheep who
fits the elementary description above, not because they don't agree with me. I could give a rats ass if you or anybody else disagrees with me, what I
get upset about is having the same preprogrammed drivel spouted at me day in and day out in an effort to convert me into one of the comatose

I hear THAT. That particular acronym (whatever the hell it is) seems to be responsible for the biggest portion taken out of each paycheck I recieve
every other week and it pisses me off too. If it's social security, then it pisses me off even more. Going to fund another well-off senile old farts
RV while I sit here and struggle to feed my family and often end up short a few days before the next paycheck.

You can't get high smoking marijuana?
Tell that to the families of people that have died from a car crash caused by someone under the influence of this same drug.
Do not bring up that people are killed also by alcohol. Drinking moderately does not impair your senses, smoking just a bit of marijuana does impair
your senses and puts people at risk.
Anyways, there "are" laws against "drunk driving."
Sure, there are people that are killed by every drug, but in marijuanas case it isn't the drug itself (since marijuana is next to impossible to
overdose on), but when you go out driving or whatever.
Alcohol on the other hand is responsible for more deaths then almost any other drug, with the exception of tobacco and every seems to know it except
for those who stick to the standard lines bottle fed them by our government.
It is not true that a little bit of alcohol does not affect you. It most certainly does indeed. In order to serve alcohol in my state you must take a
4 hour class in order to obtain a permit. I learned some very interesting things about alcohol. First, that a shot, a glass of wine, and a beer all
have the same amount of alcohol, and yes, that even small sips of alcohol are absorbed immediately through the mucous membranes of the mouth and
throat before it even hits the stomach.
In fact, it was my teachers feeling that because of this, even small amounts weren't safe to drink before driving. You are impaired even if you
don't think you feel anything. And you're telling me that alcohol should still remain legal while marijuana is not ?
And while we're on the subject of safe/unsafe drivers, what about all those senile senior citizens out there that are allowed to continue driving
even after they've crashed into markets and killed a bunch of people ?
What about cell phone users, or people who eat leaving only one hand free to drive ?
What about people who are simply TIRED from a days work ?
My point is that if we're gonna make a concerted effort to rid the streets of so-called dangerous drivers, let's go whole hog here and not leave
