Del-

I'm far from a lefty but in doing some research I'm coming around to some sort of better plan on drugs than incarceration.  I didn't read your list much but from what I've learned the situation in our prisons is bordering on ridiculous.  There was a pretty good 60 minutes episode last Sunday with our new Drug Czar that showed some of the info on drugs/alcohol/addiction being a disease.  It's more in depth than just that sentence so please don't flame me.

Well, the guy with 100 kilos of weed, or those felons in possession of firearms may have found salvation, but I am not so sure about turning them loose. 

Some of the cases it is hard to tell.  That will be left up to the reader. 

Also the guy with the sawed off shotgun manufacturing meth, or Carolyn Yvonne Butler of San Antonio, Tex.
Offense: Armed bank robbery (three counts); using a firearm during a crime of violence (three counts)

seem a little dubious for early out... But that's just judgmental me.

I checked out the bank robber gal and read the appeal.  Looks like she was in jail for 15 years or so and was sentenced to 48 years in prison.  I'm no bank robber advocate but 48 years seems like a large sentence and 15 seems on the light end.  This will be loved but she is african american and I know Obama based part of his decision on that, just a fact.

Yep, looks like more than a few "3 strikes your outers" are on that what I am sure "vetted" 35 grand a year to incarcerate list. Gee, good thing Oxy was legal and legit all these years, never mind heroin addiction is now at or near an all time high......and no, not in the ghetto, but rather in suburbia....not to mention the most legal and abused drug.....boooze..... is still "celerated" daily in adds and commercials.

#stayscaredresponsibly

that is the best Cliff's Note style synopsis there could be.  

Joe Blow tries any drug, you pick it, even alcohol.  After X time he gets into trouble "managing" taking the drug to the point it effects his brain and now he has a disease from the drug.  What's the only disease we attempt to treat when it's at a critical stage?  Drugs and alcohol.  What's one treatment?  Prison.

No that's not all people who are in prison on drug charges but it is a high percentage.  Also, a high percentage of other crimes are committed when drugs/alcohol are a contributing factor.  I don't have the answers to addiction and it's disease but it needs to be worked on.

The shotgun was just a single shot.  Not a deadly black assault weapon.

Ah, so making meth with a sawed off in your pocket is ok so long as it's a single shot?     Or was that sarcasm, so hard to tell sometimes.

Obama can cut a guy a little slack as long as he's not packing one of those black ones.

The guy wasn't waving a Confederate flag either - so 2 points for him..

Would you have the same problem with someone brewing up a batch of American Pale Ale with a Glock 43 in their pocket?

Ah, that's right.  The Libertarians think Meth is the same as beer.  

Unfortunately for your liberty, making meth is a felony.  And possessing a firearm while committing a felony is another felony. 

Who would have thought Obama is really a Libertarian?

In some ways it is, in some ways it isn't but we all know that you believe mother government should tell us what is best for us.

Unfortunately for your liberty, making meth is a felony.  And possessing a firearm while committing a felony is another felony. 

Debating whether or not it is legal was not the intent of my post, but you already knew that. So do you believe that all laws government passes are good and should never be questioned?

I don't know about all laws.  There are pretty many that I haven't looked at.  But some of them sure seem like a good idea.  Prohibiting the manufacture and sale of methamphetamine  seems like one that is a good idea.

So as long as YOU think they are a good idea no one should challenge them?

There are an awful lot of people who think banning guns is a good idea. I suppose if that is passed you'll have nothing to say about it?

Challenge away.     Where did you get that I said no one should challenge various laws?  I said what my opinion is.  You of course have your own opinion to which you are entitled. 

And guns are totally not germane to a discussion of the appropriateness of a ban on the manufacture and sale of crystal meth.

I'm for the legalization of most things, but heroin/meth are tough to justify legalization.  For the most part I'm OK with people making their own choices that ruin their lives, but eventually that stuff is making the choices for the addicts.  

When the stuff is highly addictive and it turns users into total eff ups, its hard to manage the damage without some sort of legal restriction on the manufacture/distribution.  At the same time, locking up addicts isn't the cure either.

    •     The assumption here being that since he didn't know, nobody knew.    Because obviously, nobody is smarter than him.
    •   Thanks for the reply. I was looking at the IQ pro hunter. It is a three pin, two fixed and one that is adjustable. The other would be the 5 pin micro.   i have thought about an HHA single pin but the sight makes me nervous to have in the rut. if ever I need to take a quick shot in an area I didn't expect a deer to come from
    •     Or possibly just one, since the two parties are getting more alike all the time.   Probably not a constitutional convention in the normal sense, but as we turn more and more into a police state, there is a definite possibility of a military coup.  There was a survey done in 2015, and 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they could envision a military coup in the U.S.   http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/09/10/Military-Coup-US-Surprising-Number-Americans-Might-Support-One     Republicans (43 percent) were more likely to say they can envision a scenario in which they could support a military coup than Democrats (20 percent). Perhaps that difference is related to having a Democratic president who some critics on the right see as overstepping his power.     (What's laughable is those same critics have no problem at all with a Republican president overstepping his power.)
    • Don't have to worry, there won't be a constitutional convention.    And we will have two parties or what passes for parties for a long time.
    • This Health biatchin reminds me of a dog that keeps barking and chasing a car down a street daily--then one day the car stops and the dog doesn't know what to do so it just pizza on one tire or walks away.
    • Juneau4 and Swiveldigger  each picked up a win- 200 whoopin pts. (That has to be an all time low for winning) and they didn't have the same drivers.   We had a couple contestants that had 0 pts and that may be because they just didn't get entered in time, so I'm thinking I can put it in where you can have a Mulligan for each segment. (Your low score for 1 week is thrown out each segment-Spring, summer, and playoff.  I'll try to have a winner each segment and a overall champion.   What do you guys think? I'm just thinking if more wish to join now it would possibly make it more interesting through out the year.
