There must be an awful lot of people in prison for doing nothing but being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

It's hard to determine which anachronistic policies hurt this country the most.

The War On Drugs, or the breach of our Founder's Intended, Separation Of Church and State.

Drugs should be legalized. End of problem. Let the drug abusers kill themselves off as fast as possible.

That's the problem with this country, because of the right, we keep on doing what we have already learned, doesn't work.

Prohibition should have taught us that lesson, once and for all.

Not here though! We seem to only do what doesn't work, over and over again.

The Christians, you know, the wannabe dictators, who screw up everything, the same way they are trying to dictate their BS in America's bedrooms, and doctors offices.

Catholic Bishops, turning their services into political campaigns, and lobbying on The Hill, for their anachronistic twisted ideas about life, should lose their tax exemptions.

That's exactly what needs to be done. Throw the Bishops in jail, and give the druggies what they want, lol. /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

Organized religion is a joke to me.

Some people just love to be scammed by frauds.
