I am appalled that a country built by immigrants from all over the world has become so scared of the new generation of immigrants. In turn we came here because of religious persecution or the hope for new opportunities. Once they were here, we hated the Irish, we hated the Italians, we hated the germans, and we hated the french.
We would hate the darn Canadians too if we could figure out who they were. It's tougher when they look just like you and talk the same. Looked at from the lens of history, nothing has really changed and we will assimilate the new generation of immigrants just like we did the previous generations that came here to try and grab a piece of the American dream. Each and every one of you is here because your ancestor had the balls to risk everything and move to America.
Remember that the absolute best way to resolve our problems with debt and expenditure is to grow the economy and to be so scared of the new generation of immigrants just because they are brown is ridiculous. I agree that some level of control over the borders is necessary, but if we had a workable process for hard working people to come here and work we would all be better off.
Dan, I particularly disagree with the articles assertion that MJ use is a fairly recent behavior. It only takes a minimal amount of research to learn that MJ was used by the founding fathers, American Indians, Aztecs, Egyptians etc.
I will not argue that substance abuse is good for you. It is not.
However, I would argue that the "War on Drugs" has caused more problems in our society that the drugs themselves ever did. We should spend our money on treatment and education instead of crime and punishment. MJ is just the tip of the iceberg.
PS. I completely fail to understand how the various political pundits manage to blame almost anything on the various politicians they disagree with.
Is it not just possible that $&!t happens regardless of who might be in charge this year?
Not so Mr. K I am fairly sure that God caused this fire as retaliation for the MJ vote and the Courts allowing Gay Marriage. Surely the sinners will be punished.
But Pat, it is very clear that Obama caused this fire with his liberal policies. Surely you can see that, I think Fox News ran a story on it this weekend.
Might not be a medical study, but acupuncture relieved the worst of my back problems and let me return to a normal level of activity...... 20 years and counting. If you have not been exposed to this kind of treatment, perhaps you are missing out on something that may help.
Looks suspiciously like 3 abreast to me.......... What was that law again?
As a cancer survivor myself, my heart goes out to you Kevin. Fight the fight and never give up. I am living proof that it can be done. (30+ years now). Talk with RMR, they can help I assure you. It works better than any pill the Dr. can give you to help with the side effects.
Hey Dude, just think our own country man. Come on dude, we can do this.
and perhaps the rest of us also......
