If juice could affect people's brain function and create addiction, and alcohol is as dangerous as cracks, we certainly won't treat it the same way we did now.
You've yet to provide anything that isn't anecdotal to support your first point. Seriously. I just hear the number millions thrown around and you deciding that illegalizing all drugs is the best idea.

Also, I'm not all that big into eastern methodologies, so if your question is asking why the Yin and Yang represent what they represent, I can't answer that. It's bigger than all of us. If it makes you feel any better, neither can operate without the other in conjunction.

I just don't like the two terms being based off of something like feminine and masculine. It seems pigeonholing. Maybe it has to do with my distaste towards liberalism but I don't want to see that as what femininity is suppose to be or that conservatism is solely masculine.

I am not questioning the Ying Yang but the analogy. I like the balance concept just not the assocation with masculinity and femininity.

Probably because you're referring to femininity and masculinity to that of one's sex, male and female, which is not the case. They are two very different definitions.

I suppose but I just felt the insinuation was there. If you didn't mean it that way than I forgive you.

This made Rand Paul go up in my books.



I love the Republican history too. Indiana has always been a Republican state and was the first state to mobilize for the Civil War. Abraham Lincoln made a pro-capitalism and pro-moral absolutes in Indianapolis. It makes me so proud.

It's not backed up with any sources, so I can't take it as anything but baseless opinion.

What? You need proof to show Marijuana's effect on human body, or the current users in US?

I want proof to all the claims you've made. Such as your claim before that alcohol isn't as dangerous as "cracks".

Numbers here, and you can easily get the effect of marijuana through all the websites, cracks like heroin is way above alcohol on both damage and addiction, its effect is also easy to search.

I could give detailed info with some research, but of obvious reason I'm not in the mood to do so, so I'm just going to stop here.

Will marijuana make people eat my face off? I reserve the right to being free of not having someone eat my face off.

That was a really inconclusive study. Fortunately, mine isn't.

Do we judge studies by how much they agree with us?

Sounds more like a reason to reform it so it has more money.

Right. We should give everyone truckloads of free groceries all the time.

God, you're a moron.

What should happen is they should actually enforce the law here - anyone who commits an act of fraud with an EBT card, by law, loses it forever. So, track down all the parasites who ran up the bill, and cut them off.

They're not stealing from "the government." They're stealing from taxpayers. Who do you think pays for that shit?

I am sorry but this just seems like complete and utter insanity to me. Why do some people think if entitlements produce deficits that the solution is to produce larger deficits? Eventually we will explode and it won't just be the people on assistance that will lose their sustenance but everyone else will be pulled down with them. It just feels like when a ship sinks that some people decide to push other people's heads under the water to keep themselves afloat. Everyone is in the same situation but some people decide that they need to tear other people down.
