The problem is that rewriting your debt repayment obligations without the consent of the debt holders is called "default", and the results can be fairly drastic.
Otherwise, that could seriously change "modern" warfare. "Umm, general, they seem to be using things made of rope, wood, and stone
Heh. Have you read Poul Anderson's The High Crusade? A medieval English village beats a small extraterrestrial invasion force, in part because of just that.
no, the problem is the pharmaceutical industry (in the case of opiates, which USED TO BE LEGAL
And when they were legal, the pharmaceutical industry sold them. Made a tidy amount of money at it, too. Why would they want to ban them?
the paper industry (WHICH USED TO BE MADE FROM HEMP)
Well, no, at least in the larger sense. There are a few isolated documented cases of making paper from hemp, but for the most part, mass production of paper has always been from wood pulp. I've heard that processing hemp into paper is actually more expensive than using wood pulp, but I can't verify that.
Did you rush out to buy a Power Glove after watching the Wizard?
Well, of course. I love the Power Glove. It's so bad.
They've unboiled an egg. They haven't unscrambled one.

Aw, I wanted to do that joke! Give my regards to Pixie and Dixie.

We can disagree over the rights of herd immunity, but those who maintain that refusal to vaccinate hurts only the one who refuses, as the OP argued, are just plain ignorant of the facts.
Pneumonia is caused by bacteria, the flu by a virus.
Wow. Then I guess viral pneumonia is a myth.
"Pneumonia" is term used to describe a disease where the lungs start to fill with fluid. This can result from a wide range of causes, many of which are bacterial infections, but it can also be caused by viruses, fungi, parasites, or other causes.
Prove herd immunity works - show us studies / tests / real results.
You won't be able to (just a hint).
You really should have read the Wikipedia article on herd immunity before posting this, as it details just such a case study, which quite definitely confirmed the concept.
*sigh* Every vaccination debate we get this ignorant argument. Vaccinations, like everything in life, aren't 100% guaranteed. They're very effective, but they don't *always* work. Also
The entire guilty until proven innocent is for criminal and civil trials, not for employment.
I think you meant "Innocent until proven guilty." And it's just criminal trials, for the most part. Civil trials are usually preponderance of evidence.
