    Re: Teen shot to death during home invasion

    You know I think I'm starting to see the light on the 'legalize all drugs' argument.

    We legalize everything in the same bill we make all states "shall-issue" states.

    As people go out into the community after using these drugs like someone who's going to the bar for the first time on their 21st birthday, evolution will take over until the ammo runs out.

    Nationalized gun-care anyone?

    I think the same thing every time someone says "we should legalize all drugs".

    It's just lame humor, nothing to be taken seriously.

    Jesus Christ you make Andy Dick look like ****ing George Carlin. (The word ****ing used in honor of the late Mr. Carlin, RIP)

    Your post was complete and utter idiocy. A disgrace to comedy if meant to be comedic and frankly an insult to intelligence if it was supposed to be serious.

    If it was meant to be comedic it wasn't even rooted in a tad bit of realism and was so poorly executed I don't believe you'd even have gotten a 5 year old to chuckle at it if you farted at the end.

    If it was meant to be serious, then its just god damn retarded to be perfectly blunt. Unless you're ignorant enough about this issue to assume that anyone that does drugs of any kind (whoop! My bad, not any kind, because you seem to want to ignore that Alcohol its technically a drug. Sorry, I guess I shouldn't use facts and common sense in this) OR you're actually advocating the whole sale slaughter of people for doing something, in your hypothetical, is completely legal, then it makes no sense seriously.

    Then you respond with a gem like the one quoted above? No, no Jerry. No matter how much you want to delude yourself in this, no matter how much you want to plug your ears and go "Wahh, why aren't people agreeing with my great intellect!", people are not "joking" when they say legalize drugs.

    See, unlike your idiotic blather up above, they back it up with facts. They generally have thought out opinions based on historical information, researched fact, or at least anecdotal evidence of some kind which even your above "Joke" or serious post seemed to lack.

    There is no "joke" here. A "joke" for legalizing drugs would be "I was going to go protest the drug laws....but then I got high." or some other mildly entertaining little quip. Stating "I believe we should legalize drugs as history shows us that when you remove prohibition of a substance from the equation the illegal factions having a hand in it lose power, the quality and safety of the product go up, and the removal of incentive to sell to children and 'younger people' as often as adults" is not a "joke" but is legitimate, political discourse. Perhaps try it, you may have more enjoyable and worth while conversations in this thread if you do so.

    I wouldnt take TC or Zyphlin too seriously, the argument against the war on drugs is just a lame attempt at reverse political psychology.

    Why? You say it's the logical argument, so present one. Thus far you have relied on "Drugs are bad. Banning drugs acknowledges they are bad. therefore banning drugs is good" without actually supporting the efficacy of these bans for reducing drug use.

    It's just an emotional appeal devoid of logic.
    Ive told you already im not going to repeat myself. I know for a fact that stopping and illegalizing drugs will be far more effective from protecting the public then legalizing it, its common sense.

    I'm arguing for using the resources effectively, not throwing money at a failed program.

    Why is that met with resistance?

    Because people think that legalization = saying drugs are "good".
    No its saying SUICIDAL!


    Look you know i wont even reply to your quotes. I think your so damn spaced out right now or your probably just a stoner with a personal agenda behind the legalization but either way your points are stupid, you have nothing to back them up with which is why nobody ever will and has taken your point seriously and will remain as such. I dont care what you have done or seen, your stance indicates to me your out of touchness with reality and the actual harm and effect of drugs in which you seem to be ignorant to, and the fact that all legalization will do is open a whole new level of competition between cartel and government and nothing more.

    Ah, the old I can't refute your claims so I'll resort to personal attacks gambit. Highly effective.

    Many countries seem to be handling drugs effectively, if the US is incapable of drawing up an effective strategy against drugs, and instead keeps the current inefficient system to save time, heck, thats your problem. But dont go around telling me we should legalize drugs.

    No its just pointless argueing with you. I know ill be here refuting your claims all day and you'll just be throwing out the same stuff and ill have to repeat myself.

    At least give me this.

    Do you realize drugs:

    A) Destroys lives
    B) Are harmful to our mental and physical health
    C) Highly addictive.
