  •  Drug use is the last of my worries (0+ / 0-)

    If it's at the top of your list, you can console yourself with the notion that in a hundred years or so, there will probably be very little drug use, as most of humanity will be dead due to a ravaged planet.

    •  I just quoted from the story (0+ / 0-)

      I didn't arrange the order.

      I DO NOT GIVE A FLY FUCK if people want to smoke whatever, or even shoot heroin. I am totally in favor of legalizing ALL drugs.

      However, folks posting here seem willing to excuse everything else that happens in the story because they don't like one passage.

      I guess the child rape in the Catholic Church wouldn't have been a big deal if only the priests had been high while doing it.

      The point of the story was not that people were openly smoking marijuana, the point was that POLICEMEN, handling AUTOMATIC WEAPONS, making LIFE or DEATH COMBAT decisions were openly smoking marijuana WHILE ON DUTY. If this is OK with folks, then I guess drinking on duty would be OK as well.

      •  Umm... (0+ / 0-)

        Replace the word "policemen" with the word "soldier", and the statement would be true of every armed conflict anywhere in the world for at least the last forty years.

        Not really very shocking at all.

        and I've been against the war in Afghanistan for a long time. Not from the beginning, to my shame. I initially thought it was a good idea to go in there after Bin Laden. An ugly, costly idea, but a good idea.

        I should have known it was just a pretext for any number of other things.

        Really don't mind if you sit this one out. My words but a whisper -- your deafness a SHOUT. I may make you feel but I can't make you think..Jethro Tull
