Most peace activists would have very little time to do anything but protest, if they actually protested every single war or military action. It usually requires a little selectivity, and often enough, points the finger at people and countries which claim to represent higher ideals, and above all the countries and societies they live in.
Maybe we should work on fixing society so that people on welfare don't have two choices, work for less than welfare, or don't work and have more money?
How about taking a step outside your little world where everyone acts rationally, and warnings of imminent danger or death are things to be pondered and decided upon with logic.
Humans are not vulcans, a good part of the way we deal with the world is guided by instinct, and when all your senses are telling you that there is something to fear, the instinctual part of the brain takes over. This is especially obvious in situations where information about danger is transferred by other humans, an "incoming tiger" shout has probably saved many a life, and evolution has selected for that.
Human nature doesn't work like that, and while I agree that things like the 4th and privacy are important, those are situations in which we have time to engage our logical brain, panic situations do not, and you're doing a great disservice to your credibility by insisting that these situations are in any way comparable.
What a load, there is no such link, there is just a correlation between cannabis use and psychotic episodes, there is not one study which has provided anything close to proof of cannabis actually causing the underlying problem (Ie; no cannabis = no psychotic symptoms). The only thing they've demonstrated is that cannabis can cause an earlier onset in people already predisposed to psychotic episodes.
Have you noticed they've continued to move the goal posts on these studies, when I was a kid, cannabis could cause impotence, a joint was as bad as 10 cigarettes, it caused brain damage, and had no medical value at all.
Those two drugs are nowhere near as bad as alcohol, and I say that as a drinker, alcohol has permanent health effects, actually does kill brain cells, causes violence and poor impulse control, can cause birth defects, and kills millions a year worldwide. Your arguments are weak, and your mom dresses you funny.
I've just read a post by someone who thinks that evolution and the origin of the universe are the same thing. Obviously that totally invalidates all of the Hebrew faith, since he's an idiot and he's defending the Torah.
Nah, I'd prefer to call you a Daily Mail reader, as it much better represents your inability to think critically, and willingness to parrot the xenophobic tripe they print.
No it isn't.
Maybe your dad got shit weed, but full land race sativas are not less potent, they're just nearly impossible to grow indoors, and have exceeding long growing times. Their potency is untouchable though,
The link to schizophrenia is completely unproven, I know plenty of conspiracy theorists who wouldn't touch coffee let alone drugs, and you'd think with the amount of people using marijuana, there would be a much higher incidence of suicide (unless you're pulling the old canard of this suicide case had used mj before his death, so obviously it caused it), and plenty of things cause diverted attention, lack of sleep being the single most dangerous one.
You are doing an OK job of parroting the current antidrug propaganda though.
Never heard of anyone doing anything violent under the influence of alcohol, you must be right...
Those are after school institutions, not instead of school institutions, you Daily Mail reader.
What is right is a fairly small subset of the possible things that it could be, what is bad encompasses all the rest. Obviously, the variations possible inside that set are a non trivial number.
Whole grains are better than whitened ones without the husk (rice being a good example), fresh raw veggies have more nutrients than cooked (though they're less easy to get nutrition from) and so on.
You're welcome to live a life without cheese, don't ask for any of my caprese though.
What is uncreacable.. and more pointedly, what is creacable?
I probably should have been more specific, drowning in small amounts of water, as it seems a lot of drowning victims do black out before inhaling water.
