Divide and conquer the dumbed down masses with political gay marriage bickering so they don't notice that they're being anally raped 24/7 by the Federal Reserve Cartel.
Or the erosion of your civil rights and right to a private life which is fast disappearing to keep you 'free'.
Another bullseye. 👍👍
Or the rights of babies being aborted.
Overpopulation is a myth and a cruel excuse. This generation. Its not the population thats a problem; it's the government and the destructiveness of humanity. This generation places pleasure above life. It loves pleasure and hates life. Its humanity that needs to change. Not the population. Shortage of food my *** as fat America stuffs their face.
Bang on! This is like a breath of fresh air after some of the rubbish I've been seeing lately on EP. 👍 Keep it coming. Babies should have rights before they are born and not just afterwards.
Not sure what the numbers are now, but when I was conducting research into pot and it's effects, both positive and negative on society, I was a bit shocked to learn that according to the 2009 FBI's crime statistics website, a whopping 53% of people in federal prisons were there for non-violent, marijuana related "possession" crimes.
Yeah, I think it's something like $60,000 per prisoner, per year, but don't quote me on that. At least it's fully legal in Colorado now. ;)
It's around 43% of arrests are for possession of marijuana, 6.2% for sale. However Marijuana related crimes only make up for around 1/8th of all inmates incarcerated in the United States.
You must have some big jails in the US. In the UK we often have scandals about violent criminals getting out early, shortage of jail places being the excuse. That criminals are often treated better than their victims is a common complaint.
I wonder how many road deaths they have in Colorado caused by pot smoking drivers. Surely it adds to the toll caused by alcohol.
Prisons are big business here in the US. Most of them are becoming privately owned, rather than state or federal. It's all about the profits. Criminals here are treated better too... only we call most of them politicians. ;)
Actually, this article may surprise you about that: http://www.businessinsider.com/it-turns-out-that-smoking-marijuana-may-actually-make-you-a-better-driver-2011-12
Zombie rights you fool!
Yes i think god said **** the gays
I'm concerned about the number of serious criminals getting out of prison early- to commit more crimes. And they do.
As you say there are many rights abuses all over the globe, So why this on gets the most attention is a mystery, to most.
imagine you are in charge of everything government and you want things how they are, (for reasons of control and finances). but the people are restless and want rights, so you to put a few "activists" into the populace to stir things up and create the illusion of rights and being heard, but who? prisoners, soldiers, educationists, elderly. sh1t these are all going to change things and cost, f**kit make them fight for gay rights, that won't cost us or eat away our control. the problem is us, we fight the wrong battles.
Gay rights do have a heavy cost. First they give government an excellent smoke screen to cover up more serious issues. Second, all these pressure group rights give work to keep civil servants employed, to spy on you and to take away the real rights you should have. When people argue about lesser issues politicians can sneak in bigger things through the back door. It's an old trick.
If you're writing about the U.S. education system, I agree that it is terrible. But what's really the worst part is that there are much better ways to teach than the way we teach presently.
The prisons we have that are overflowing stem largely from the prohibition on drugs this country has followed now for more than thirty years. Our education system is in a shambles. Not to mention an outdated military as it is currently structured. But with the lack of real Statesmen we have in DC right now, I do not think better is coming soon. If the Dems can turnout and retake the House perhaps we can see much fixed. In it's current state, Congress just does nothing. Over two million now locked up of which 82% were for non-violent offences with drugs.....bc
