    How Mexicans killing patients in a rehab center.
    While Mexicans are soaked in a blood bath armed with American made guns stamped on the side...
    People across America sit watching them as they smoke their blunts stuffed with home grown Mexican weed.

    Drugs provide a culture of death.
    Lives are ruined by the need of many human beings to escape into addiction.
    Drug dealers kill human beings to profit from drug addiction.
    It would be wonderful if we could all learn to deal with life as it really is.

      Good morning Joey,
      Never thought I'd be saying this but I actually agree with all of your post.
      Now as realistic of a theme in your post is, I only wish you could see the realism in the Bible (God, Jesus, and the Holy spirit)

      I meant that with all sincerity Joey, from one human to another. 🙂

      Good morning, JIF.
      I agree with your post...
      If we are talking about marijuana •only•, I still say legalize it, ttax the crap out of it, pay down our debt, and free up prison space taken up by these non-violent offenders.

    @PEDD BEAR. Too late. Adult Mexican obesity has already spread to their children, who are almost as fat as ours are now. An obese child can look forward to leading the same life as, say, an avg. weight person burdened with a 100 lb. backpack their entire life. No? Strap-on 100 pounds of barbell weights and see how you are doing at the end of the day/week/month/year/decade.

    "Style"? Hardly am I a stylish person fashioning himself after others. You know me from my originality, Joey. You won't hear any TV talking heads discussing this info I provide, for example. (explaining why rarely do i see anyone responding seriously to my posts. There simply aren't any TV talking heads giving them their opinions on these matters, so they really don't have an opinion...amd so crack jokes or take my posts personal and seek revenge on me.
    And good morning, @Mary. 🙂

      @ Health and Wellness Centers of America:
      You cannot read my removed post again, but you saw it while it was there.
      It did not say that your "style" was not original. I was not criticising your style, but rather laughing with you and having fun with my own take on Bayer & Friends.
      Aussi, I do agree with much that you say about pharmaceuticals.
      @ Mary: I know that you are sincere. Our thinking is closer than you see it. I could go with you, regarding Christianity, as far as a modern Episcopal Church school of theology that takes the Bible seriously but not literally. I could never take a literal reading of the Bible as far as I think that you do in setting norms of behaviour, models of morality, and, certainly in the USA, laws. By the same reasoning, I can go a long way with good Muslims whom I know in sharing the Koran's admonitions regarding (1) respect for one's fellow man and (2) submission to the will of God. I appreciate your sincere interest, Mary, and thank you for it.

    Our little nazi youth moderator is a bizzy little bee this morning. (already both Joey and my posted comments are being deleted, causing much confusion.
    CNN mods should be required to explain themselves, or at least explain why they delete comments that were previously posted just as a shopkeeper would explain to a customer stifled.

    Yes, legalize MJ. And in a few more years, legalize heroin too. Lets just cut to the chase and extend Holy Matrimony to a woman and her dog.

      Yes, where would society stop? more to the point, does society (for example: American society) have boundaries?

    In Colorado, if you own a Marijuanna Distribution Center, your business doesn't have a bank account. Banks are insured by the FDIC, a federal program, and so banks will not allow you to open an account for your MJ sales based company. Growing and selling MJ is a federal offense still prosecuted in court.
    MJ sales centers are raided by federal authorities here in Colorado, with all of the owners property siezed.

    Rampage? Or simply a case where drug addicts who had burned their drug dealers and then hide-out disguised as a patient at a long-term wellness center, where they are evntually found by those whom they owe and dealt with harshly. (what goes around comes around)

    Legalize marijuana.
    That is what I stated.
    That, of course, has nothing to do with my opinion of any other drug being legalized, which is why I plainly stated if we're talking about marijuana •only•.

    My condolences to the families of the victims, who were trying so hard to turn their lives around.

    Ok@Joey. So what have you to say about the Koran commanding Muslims to "repel the invading infidels", and labling Muslims who side with invading infidels as "Renegades" who are to be dealt with "harshly" when caught? (reference American contractors claiming to be Muslim dragged through the streets of Fallujah, and then hung in public shame)

    @ Joey, I'm glad you took my jester they way it was intended. thanks 🙂
    I must say tho, You are a man and I am a women, therefore, I can not stand here and teach a man about the Bible, or any other for that matter. At least any others for awhile, a very long while, as a I am a cub in Gods' word. It would also be a waste of time if anyone were to study from a Bible that still had the hundreds of flawed translations.

    In essence, If you where to go along with anyone it would be, with another man.

    I wanted to get this reply back to ya ASAP , But I'm sure I'll have something to add tonight. Have a great day if we don't get to chat later... 🙂
