read the bills act

Here's a novel idea.

Make the people making laws actually read the laws they're voting on.

The Read The Bills Act.

christ in a handbasket.

i'm drawn to the show intervention on a&e. it's the same show every week yet I still enjoy it. I spend quite a bit of time watching with my hand up to the screen blocking out injections.

the chuckie negron episode broke my heart. kid never had a chance and his dad just wants to look like a hero and make his ex wife look bad. he was doomed. doomed. amazing that his brother was so cool.

it's an odd thing, they don't show the functioning ones. i've watched a couple and the only problem the person has, other than wanting something, is supply and social acceptance. you don't hoard shit that is available.

i believe that if hard drugs were legal, they'd be a problem like alcohol. the world surrounding the drugs wouldn't be as destructive. the abuse would destroy people and families the way alcohol and cigs do now.

The fact that it's easier for kids to get drugs than it is to get cigarettes gives you all the information you need.

The other thing to remember is that hard liquor is readily available yet beer and wine are the most popular alcoholic drinks. If we can transfer this to pot and heroin, then we could safely say that since folks aren't drinking the shelves dry of Jack Daniels, they probably wouldn't destroy society by shooting up all the god damned time.

Of course, maybe we can't transfer it. But if it does fail repeal the laws.

The new treatments for opiates and alcohol are going to make the AA cult people nuts. There's another one for cocaine in the works, ass well.

It's a crazy mixed up world, Arthur Brown.


When I begin to lose faith in the world, a movie with the main theme being "we will die to save the world from mysticism and tyranny" is the #1 movie and I feel all gooey inside.

Skeptic's Guide Massage Board

Yes, I've begun posting on a message board. That's the kind of dork I am.

I've been posting a bit over on the skeptic's guide to the universe message board. There's lots of good thinking going on, along with some real not good thinking.


There is a discussion on global warming, which is cool because there are some skeptics of global warming. On the other side of that, there are skeptics who are of the mind that global warming skeptics are in the same league as skeptics of the holocaust.

So. It's pretty intense, yes? Yes.

I have a whole bunch to say about this global warming thing, but I have no time right now. (NO, NOT EVEN FOR MOTHER EARTH!!!)

I posted something there that I thought was quite good and thought it was worth putting up here, ass well.

Here it is:

I believe that the environment is far too important to let politicians decide what to do. I don't trust Chuck Hagel or Barbara Boxer with the ocean.

(No, my straw man hippie brother, I didn't say I trusted exxon. Go smoke another doobie, buddy.)

Imagine that something analogous to the Kyoto Protocol had been enacted when the big bad humans were bringing on another ice age 30 years ago.

I hate to sound like one of those Libertarians, but the government rarely changes their bad laws at a good speed. We've had several temporary taxes here in California and they seem to be temporary in that geologic type of temporary.

No, I don't know who we should listen to, Mr. Straw, but politicians are too concerned with saying what a majority of people want to hear to be considered for the position. Politicians have only been objective when they agree with us.

These are people who will allow chiropractors and acupuncturists to be "state licensed". Why would we think that they're suddenly objective about atmospheric science; a subject with concepts significantly more difficult than pure hooey like subluxations and chi.

Remember, they all love the lord. Or worse, lie and say they do. Except Culbert Olson. (Thanks, Google!!!)
