See the same thing with radical anti drinkers
they too often couldn't handle the buzz, figure no one else can either

Why are the vast majority of mass murder freaks liberals ?
most liberals can't handle basic emotions
give them a gun, they want to murder up others and figure that's just a normal thing
Only way to stop it in their minds is the removal of guns from everyone.

I can provide dozens of corollaries to this
We legislate to the lowest denominator...the most base level of stupid even though the vast bulk of the people remain far removed from that

Why should my rights be forfeit because koko got stoned and fukked the dog once ?

40?

You would have loved the sixties!

I know I did.
At least the parts I can remember, some of it is still pretty blurry.LOL

A conservative letter writer in today's Austin American-Statesman pointed out that the Cato Institute's annual survey, "Freedom in the 50 States' has again listed Texas as dead last in personal freedom. And yes, I know Charles Koch was one of the founders. The writer of the letter to the editor pointed out that Texas' drug laws and ideas regarding incarceration were major reasons for that poor ranking. I had to look up that list for myself. Maybe some here would like to see it too.

I agree. Texas LEO runs amok. Traffic enforcement well, we got city cops, troopers, sheriffs, and constables all out there pulling people over and searching their vehicles. Oh forgot to mention a healthy dose of red light cameras. Mommy may I for carry permits.

My memory was in places like MS that city cops had the only jurisdiction for traffic enforcement in a township except for the troopers. Sheriffs didn't have radar. Constables had nothing to do with traffic.

The penal and justice systems are just another money making scam IMO.

what happened, did you wake up one morning with your flacid pecker still in the family dog you choked out ?

Was it good for you ?

sounds like you are projecting your own personal shortcomings onto others to deflect your own problems

sad

Reefer Madness will explain the real horrors of smoking WEED. Really how many people die from smoking weed? And no I don't smoke it.
