    Why is the list nothing but talk show hosts? You could not put an actual influencial conservative on the list? Where is John Boehner? Where is Mitch McConnel? Michael Steele?

    Probably some of the best teachers are people who abuse what they are teaching against.

    He got addicted to a substance that you become addicted to from the first pill. He got caught. He was humiliated. He went to rehab, and apparently or most possibly kicked it. He may or may not continue to take them. If he does he's usually pretty lucid, so he can perform and go on living without consequence.

    His criticism is probably towards those who are out of control and can't maintain a reasonable lifestyle. He did want them prosecuted which I think some have to be, but many do get a lot of breaks before the final gavel is thrown.

    He may be a hypocrit on this issue, but nobody in my book is ever completely squeaky clean on everything.

    If he gets caught, again, well, it's up to the courts what to do with him.

    Lots and lots and lots of us do not practice what we preach. Parents are very bad about doing this sort of thing. Not practicing what they preach.

    Ask the general public if they know who those people are. Most will probably say no. Ask if they know who Rush or Glenn are....they know. They're more influential than politicians.

    I know who they are. If you watch Fox you'll know. I like Boehner. Don't know Mitch well, but he seems good. Steele just doesn't have the charisma that we American's like in our leaders.

    Well known is not the same as influential. The people I mentioned actually influence policy. The ones you mentioned, not so much.

    What's that old saying about "to whom much is given, much is expected"? It's not like he's some nameless, faceless parent out there, "Do as I say, not as I do!". He's listened to by MILLIONS. Hypocrisy in one's own family vs hypocrisy before god and country is a whole different ballgame.

    And you're absolutely correct. Usage is condoned in NL and as a result we've been able to study 700.000 regular users. Maybe some day people like zyphlin & cc will realise that they have been believing false studies. People do exaggerate tho. I've used MJ for over 15 years, never once hallucinated. At best it makes me happy, hungry and sleepy. We're talking about a very small impairment, especially for a regular user, that only lasts 1-4 hrs and drops significantly after the first half hour.

    The dutch lawmaker acknowledges a difference between soft & hard drugs, I think the US should adopt such a policy.

    You don't think millions of people calling, emailing and writing to their representatives because talk radio hosts have informed their audience what's really in the bills is not influential? The tea parties and townhall meetings where conservatives made their voices heard is largely due to talk radio, not politicians.

    He is culled from the heard, in my opinion. . . all he has, now, is a radio show - and the only time anyone ever pays attention to him is when he blubbers out something stupid and controversial. . . if it weren't for such moments then no one would know about him - at all.

    He really is far less influencial than most other known and ignored conservative voices out there.

    That being said - anyone could get addicted to pain pills. . . it's extremely common, you might be surprised at how many people are on them in an addicted means. Most of these types of addictions start with a Dr's prescription - unlike any other drug out there. . . often people don't intend to become an addict - it just happens when the Dr can't find the cause of the problem and just keeps prescribing pills . . . next thing you know, you're hooked and then the Dr tells you he won't give you more.

    My husband has over 20 vials of pills from the year that his torn tendon went undiagnosed - none of them worked - and instead of trying to find the source of the problem the Dr's just gave him more pills. . . if he had really started to take them all when was given them eventually he would have been hooked on them. he didn't, however, he just stopped taking them and put them away - they didn't really work because pills aren't the cure for a Dr's stupidity.

    anyway - I digress

    Not saying it's right - but it's more understandable than drinking and smoking, imho.
