good on you heff
for stepping up and making a stand
though i'm F&Sing, i'm with antar on this:
the "people", [humanoids rather] you're addressing, live by a twisted version of the law of the jungle
and they consider themselves the super-predators.
you're like van gogh, cutting off your ear and sending love letters to somebody that does not care.edit on 18-9-2012 by DerepentLEstranger because: (no reason given)

Great Job, Heff!! Now, if only they listen. Remember, though, the immortal words of Pogo Possum: "We has seen the enemy and he is us". I say that because when I was younger, I was a police officer and took an interest in county and state narcotics. Almost every time we busted a dealer, there would be a replacement for him or her within the hour. We couldn't understand the fascination of drug dealing. Only it wasn't fascination, just supply and demand. Everyday people spend their last dollar on illicit drugs. Something that you cannot stop. It will never stop until each individual says to themselves, this is wrong and I'm not doing it again. How does this reflect towards what you have written?
It shows to the law enforcement arena just how stupid people are in general and if people in general can't stop purchasing and using illicit drugs, how can the average person be trusted to rights given by the Constitution? Of course illicit drugs could be legalized, drug laws could be reformed maybe other draconian solutions could be implemented.
But, it will never erase the memory of a mother looking under a sheet at her overdosed deceased 16 year old daughter.
I will support and defend the Constitution of the
United States against all enemies, foreign and
domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to
the same; that I take this obligation freely, without
any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that
I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the
office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

I do not live in fear - but in awareness of current events. Personally? I'm well armed, well liked, and quite capable of defending my own home.
