    Re: Whitney Houston has died

    I did drugs when I was younger but not the heavy duty stuff. It scared me. Instead, I married an alcoholic who was a speed freak at the same time. He said the speed wasn't the problem. The booze was going to be the bitch to beat. And it sure was a battle. But he finally kicked it to the curb about 5 years ago.

    And yes, I knew people who thought that not using drugs was “dull”. Stupid people. I wasn't one of them. I didn't generally associate with them.
    I was the same way. Except when I was a teenager in the mid 80's I was really into Skateboarding and BMX. I mean really into it. A lot of friends were using and I got to see what it did to them. I wanted no part of that. I wasn't the perfect kid by any stretch of the imagination but I did manage to stay away from that garbage. Looking back about 3/4 of those people are either dead or have been in some serious trouble. Some are still addicted and have never known a sober life. To this day the still believe its ok.

    Let's get some perspective peeple!

    Those men and women in uniform signed up for it. She did not sign up for death. Her job as an artist did not include war. The comparison is futile.

    Joining the military, or taking that first recreational dose of a known addictive and destructive drug—I wonder which of these two choices has the greater chance of leading one to a premature death? I strongly suspect that even in time of war, the latter is more dangerous. In any event, the death of a soldier in action certainly has more value and meaning than the death of a pathetic, self-destructive drug addict.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    That so called drug addict has as much worth as anybody else! She was someones child and a mother. To say that anybody else has more value is pretty hurtful to those that loved her. And just who the hell are you to make the call that another human being is more worthy? Are you some GodHead? If so? I must have missed the memo

    So we're flying the American flag half-staff in New Jersey for a drugged-out pop star who basically committed suicide?

    I am hoping this thread R.I.P.
    We went from sticks and stones may break my bones but words will never hurt me to safe spaces.
