We see now there that Colorado is having problems with people going around the tax structure andRead More buying their pot cheaper on the black market. Plus with the action against smoking these last two decades by liberals, the same people who want to legalize pot it does not make any sense to make it easier for people to induce another substance into their bodies. It goes against everything the liberals have been preaching against with cancer and healthcare commercials. I can drink a little alcohol socially, can I smoke only a little pot. Why would I smoke only a half a joint, for the taste,...No. Pot is smoked to get high. Anyone who wants this is a pot smoker who is afraid of getting arrested. We have problems with alcohol currently, I see no reason for another substance which is undetectable once ingested.

Baptists were bitching about taxes and going to jail or moving west to escape them. EstablishmentRead More refers to the Church of England- the established church. The king had the right to appoint Bishops for the same and tax everyone of any conviction to pay for them. That was a major cause of the conflict. You continue your strawman argument, and you continue to ignore the fact that I'm not arguing faith while you are arguing history as a prop for your anti-faith dogma. Portundity. What on earth. Getting a bit red are we? Mutual subjugation- like mutual destruction- done one to the other. You garbled your syntax as your explanation makes clear. As a white male, I am bone weary of the whining of those, who unlike my ancestors, allowed themselves to be subjugated. That's why "proud as an Indian" used to be a common phrase in that era. The Indians refused to be enslaved. The whining is especially tedious when it comes from a white man. Are you one of those mewling pukes? SO sensitive, so caring, so guilty, so phoney.

Hugh, you continue to be very amusing! I quote actual historical text, while you interject you ownRead More twisted interpretation, and then accuse me of trying to support my own dogma (which I haven’t even mentioned). Fact: The letter from the Danbury Baptists to Jefferson said nothing about taxes, going to jail, or moving west. Fact: The first amendment says nothing about the Church of England or an established church. It says; “establishment of religion”… noting more, nothing less. Fact: Jefferson interpreted this clause as creating a wall a separation between church and state (which courts have mostly supported throughout history) . Fact: The U.S. Constitution (the blueprint for our system of laws) makes no mention of a superior being, nor any specific religious belief, and does not recognize any power greater than “We the People”. These are facts, not interpretations as you are posting. As to your last statements; of course states had churches, that why people came to this country, for religious freedom. They were not government sponsored churches. They were not churches that mandated any type of law. They were churches that people attended entirely voluntarily, as they do today. What’s the point???

Snow removal should not be an expensive ordeal. We do not have enough snow from year to year toRead More warrant a lot more equipment. I think most of us would rather see our taxes cut and downsizing within the town for all entities, from police to simple town admin employees. The state is on the verge of bankruptcy (Detroit just went belly-up, and more towns are following because of all the ridiculous benefits and pensions being given in a very flawed system). You just cannot keep going to the well (average taxpayers) each time more money is needed. Towns need to budget the same way families do. WAKE UP FELLOW CITIZENS! Public employees at the higher end are cheating taxpayers. Multiple pensions for multiple jobs which in many cases are no show, or very little time and effort and skill, necessary, getting richly rewarded! Get rid of the corruption and cheating, and monies will be available for special needs and emergencies. There are many examples within our town of very poor management and waste. We need to cut back now.

Hell, the question I'd ask Obama is, "What makes you think you're qualified to be President?" I mean, come on, community activist, two years as a senator, likely never got properly vetted because he was the first somewhat viable black candidate, and maybe a bunch of other things. // But, I've got to tell you that I'm sick and tired of people taking sides and the whole deflection argument. The idea of defending someone who has no idea who you are and who has done nothing for anyone who hasn't contributed to his campaigns and his party (which makes him like ever other politician out there) is something I cannot understand.

This is excellent proactive thinking on the part of whomever came up with the idea ( I'm sure itRead More wasn't Christi as he hates addicts and would exterminate them if he could)! It is true though that Narcan throws the addict into instant opiate withdrawal and they are going to be upset (not because there life was just saved) because coming down from a place where you feel safe (addicts turn to drugs because fear drives them) and will instantly be thrown into for lack of a better term "culture shock". Immediate withdrawal is incredibly painful and psychologically devastating. They will become violent, they will rummage the ambulance or hospital for something to stick in their vein and not necessarily because they don't want to stop us in but because addiction is a monster that takes over all rational thought and drives one to insane decisions. If they see a saline injection on a med cart you can bet they will steal it even knowing it won't get then high but to fulfill there ritual of abuse and injecting things into there bodies. I saw a lot when I was a kid, I'm in my 50's now and clean for over 20 years. I'll explain the allure of heroin as simple as possible for those that don't understand. Just please make an honest attempt at feeling the scenario I am about to describe. Imagine being swaddled in a soft blanket like an infant, in perfect grace and comfort dreaming of the most beautiful things your imagination can design. Your warm and filled with love and protection, your warm, the perfect temperature flows throughout your body and the music of the most spiritual nature lulls you in and out that beautiful dream your floating in. You feel what it must be like to love and be loved and then IN ONE INSTANTANEOUS MOMENT IT ALL GETS SUCKED OUT OF YOU and now your lonelier then you've ever felt, your I've cold with goose pimple skin, lights are cutting you like ginsu knives painfully cutting to the bone while voices frantically ask you questions about how you feel but you can't talk...if you open your mouth you'll vomit. You have an overwhelming fear of dread and isolation. You most likely evacuates your bowels and don't even care you just want a blanket and a shot of something to take all this overwhelming anxiety and shut it off. You went from heaven to hell in 3 seconds and within a few minutes if you have a experienced nurse, doctor, or emt they give you a safe shot of liquid valium put a catheter in your urethra and tell you to get some rest. That is what it is like to go from a non fatal overdose to a shot of narcan! If they don't instruct the people (cops, emt workers ) to check vitals and make sure that the person can't be stabilized before administering narcan then yes you will have violent episodes of panic and a addict patient just wanting to get out of the ambulance or wherever they are as fast as possible. I REPEAT MY INITIAL STATEMENT THAT IT IS A GREAT IDEA TO SUPPLY FIRST RESPONDERS WITH THIS MEDICATION BECAUSE IT WILL SAVE LIVES BUT DONT JUST PUT IT IN THE MEDICAL KIT AND THINK IT WORKS AS EASY AS GLUCOSE ON A DIABETIC. They need training on how and when to use it and how to defend themselves so a cop don't shoot an addict attacking him for waking him up from the safest, most comforting place he has ever been able to find. I doubt I got to many people to see the point of view from an addicts mind but in order to save them you need to understand them. I hope for the sake of all the children and older addicts they can make a narcan statewide program work but believe me it's not like giving someone an aspirin, glass of water and sayin see ya in the morning!
