Another hand in my pocket!

Posted Wednesday, May 26, 2010, at 10:57 AM

Another big thanks to the political machine for yet another hand in my pocket! Thank you to those who thought making us get prescription to get all the "D" allergy medicine was a good idea! Hey boneheads! Have you lost your everlovin' minds! Here let me spell it out for you, all the laws you make will NOT stop criminals from breaking them! Get that through your eternally fogged brains! It only makes it more of a pain for those who follow the rules anyway! You want to deter crime?!? The punishment must be bad enough to make them decide it is not worth the risk getting caught or.........(here's where it gets good).......to end their ability to break the law! In others words removing their privilige of living in our ( the ones who follow laws) society! I for one back the use of public execution! Why are the law abiding citizens the ones being punished for the meth-heads crimes?!? They have already proven they will do whatever it takes to get it so make them suffer more and not those of us who have to endure allergy season in Swamp-east Missouri! Get off your high horses and start earning your (over)pay!

You are forgetting that we are not capable taking care of ourselves; we need "looking after." Prohibition worked, did it not? And--you speak of punishment and its worth? Nothing is going to stop the manufacturing and the using of the drugs so I suggest we simply feed it to the users. Feed them until the rest of their teeth drop out,until their bodies are covered with seeping sores, until their minds are so fried they no longer can do even the most basic of functions--and then bunch them together in one big group. Hand out high-powered guns and tell them to find a target within the compound.

Bravo! I like the imagination! You are right nothing is going to stop the druggies from getting their drugs. I just wish I didn't have to jump through more hoops and pay more money just to get my medicine. I am however all for speeding up the process of natural selection.

We must always punish the law abiding citizens.

That will stop the criminals for sure.

"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded."

-Abraham Lincoln (1809-65) U.S. President.

Speech, 18 Dec. 1840, to Illinois House of Representatives

Revelation 3:14-19 If you were to read these verses you would find the foundation for this blog and have an understanding of the essence of me. I am a Christian! I am not ashamed or embarrassed to be so, nor will my obvious faults keep me from proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ! Every "rant" in this blog will have this fact at it's base. This in no way should be taken as me believing that I am right all the time. May I always be ready to accept the lessons that come only from being wrong! However I will be either hot or cold! May the Lord Jesus not find me to be lukewarm.
