Kennedy leads fight against pot legalization


Comment:  Ask Recovering Addicts, Not Ones Who Want to become an Addict
June 23rd 2013

Who would know more about the Dangers of Drugs and Alcohol and what it leads to, than recovering Addicts.

1: How many people have died from Drug  and Alcohol use every year?
2: How many kids will die every year from Drugs and Alcohol use?
3: And what is it going to take to get Drug and Alcohol use under control?
4: And to get enforcement tougher on Drug Use, Selling, and Trafficking, and making them pay for their own Treatment?
5: If it was so healthy as they want you to believe, then why have they spent so much money on drug treatment, if it is not a health problem? That money could have been used for real health problems.

They talk about Cigarettes being a health risk and what it will cost to treat illness from them, then you look at all the money that has been spent on drug treatment of Addicts, and then they have the gall to say that Marijuana (a drug) is not as bad as Cigarettes as a health hazard, this shows what Politicians will do to get Elected, whether it is legal or safe.

Kennedy leads fight against pot legalization

ROB HOTAKAINEN | Staff writer
Published June 23, 2013

WASHINGTON — Stung by momentum to legalize marijuana, opponents are fighting back with an unlikely leader: a recovering drug addict and liberal ex-congressman from Rhode Island named Patrick Kennedy, a member of the famous political clan.

“I cannot be silent, and I don’t imagine anyone else could be silent if they knew the facts as I know the facts — and all I’m trying to do is get those facts to the broader public,” said Kennedy, son of the late Massachusetts Democratic Sen. Edward M. Kennedy.

Spreading the word, Kennedy is traveling the country as chairman of Project SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana), which he formed in January and which now has affiliates in five states. Kennedy will announce new affiliates July 1 in San Diego and July 10 in Seattle.

No stranger to substance abuse, Kennedy long ago made public his battle with depression and alcohol and drug abuse, including an addiction to the pain reliever OxyContin. In 2006, he fell asleep behind the wheel and crashed his car into a barrier near the U.S. Capitol. His problems forced him to retire from the House of Representatives.

In an interview, Kennedy said he has smoked marijuana, but not much.

“In spite of the fact that I’m also an asthmatic, I did try and experiment with marijuana, but I quickly migrated to other drugs and alcohol,” he said.

He also once backed using marijuana as medicine. “I now stand corrected by the science,” said the 45-year-old Kennedy.

After making a mark in Congress promoting mental health, Kennedy said he wasn’t surprised by the legalization votes in Washington state and Colorado in 2012, or by polls showing increased acceptance of marijuana.

“They’re votes and they’re polls that reflect my early opinions and viewpoints, which were uneducated,” Kennedy said. “When you don’t have the facts and when you don’t have the public policy experts, then what you have is a vacuum where anecdote and opinion become public policy and reality. And that’s dangerous.”

Kennedy said he’s partly to blame for the rush to legalize because he didn’t speak out sooner. But he said he didn’t understand the big picture until he began working with the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Research now makes it clear that marijuana is a gateway drug that can induce psychosis and cause teens to lose IQ points they’ll never recover, creating “devastating health consequences,” he said.

Mason Tvert, spokesman for the pro-legalization Marijuana Policy Project, called Kennedy a hypocrite.

“His family made millions off the sale of alcohol, and we hope that he and his organization recognize that marijuana is far less harmful and that adults should not face penalties just for using it,” said Tvert, adding that Kennedy wants to force marijuana users into “education camps.”

Allen St. Pierre, executive director of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, another pro-legalization group, said Kennedy is relying on arguments from a past generation: “Most of the stuff he’s saying is about 20 to 30 years old.”

“Over a 40-year period, there have been dozens to hundreds of anti-marijuana groups — most of them don’t really last very long and they don’t have much success,” St. Pierre said. “We have to see in a year or two or three if Project SAM is going to be around, or is it just a flash in the pan?”

Kennedy said he understands the shots.

“We’re a truth-telling organization,” he said. “Their biggest threat is that people will find out the truth. So it’s not Patrick Kennedy they need to be worried about — it’s the truth.”

Kennedy called the legalization effort “a knee-jerk reaction” and said it will lead to more teens smoking pot, making more of them susceptible to addiction. And with marijuana use surpassing tobacco use among teens, Kennedy said they face a greater risk because of the rising potency of the drug.

“This isn’t your Woodstock weed,” he said. “This is genetically modified marijuana that is more closer to hashish. And its impact on brain development, especially if teenagers are using it, is profound and permanent.”

In February, Kennedy asked Attorney General Eric Holder to enforce federal law and not allow Colorado and Washington to sell and tax marijuana.

“I woke up after the last election and saw there’s kind of a wrinkle in the whole environment dealing with mental health and addiction. … It was hard to ignore that we’re moving in the opposite direction,” Kennedy said.

Ore. teen accused of planning to attack school

Associated Press By STEVEN DUBOIS | Associated Press
05-25-2013

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — An Oregon high school student is being charged with attempted murder after the authorities say he planned to attack his high school with bombs.

The student, 17-year-old Grant Acord, was taken to a juvenile jail Thursday night after police received a tip that the youth was making a bomb to blow up West Albany High School.

Benton County District Attorney John Haroldson said late Saturday that authorities found six bombs in a secret compartment in the boy’s bedroom.

Haroldson said Acord had written plans and checklists, and his intent was “forged and inspired by the model of the Columbine shootings.”

Haroldson said the teen is being charged as an adult.

Police found no bombs during a search of West Albany High, which about 75 miles south of Portland.

College Sticker Shock, WHY?


Comment by Bob L.
05-20-2013

Sticker Shock for colleges? Ask the GREEDY Professors and Administrators.

I read an article here the other day and it made the comment that they have to raise them to keep their Professors, start there, if you want to stop it, boycott these Colleges, plus you could probably get a better Education by going to local Community college. 

Is it that by going to a Big Name College, you can Party and walk around with your nose up in the air Bragging that you went to Blah Blah  College and not really getting the Education that you deserve, which is, go to a party School, or a go to a  less expensive College and get an Education.

As you read this article you will see a lot of double talk to why the cost is so high, basically it all stems to GREED, Public Schools are having the same problem.

The Lookout

Sticker shock: New college graduates, here is why your education cost so much money

By Liz Goodwin, Yahoo! News The Lookout
05-20-2013

When high school senior Jenny Bonilla got her college acceptance letter in March, she felt shock and heartbreak rather than joy. That’s because the letter from Goucher College, a private liberal arts school in Baltimore, also brought news that she would owe an unaffordable $20,000 a year in tuition and board, even with a scholarship the college was offering.

Bonilla had been in the running for a full ride to Goucher but eventually lost out because her parents’ combined income of $57,000 a year was deemed too high.

“That was heartbreaking,” she said.

Bonilla’s experience is all too familiar to many students and their parents contemplating college, as higher education price increases have far outpaced the growth in middle-class wages over the past three decades.

The average tuition and fees at a public, four-year university rose to $8,655 in 2012-13, not counting the costs of room and board, according to the College Board. That’s 250 percent more than it would have cost in 1982, when a year of college would have set the average student back just $2,423 in today’s dollars.

The tuition at private colleges has increased at a slightly lower rate over the same period: the average four-year private institution costs $29,056, not counting room and board. It would have cost $10,901 in 2012 dollars back in 1982.

The pricey degree comes with big returns, on average: College educated workers earned 79 percent more than high-school educated workers in 2012, and were much less likely to be unemployed.

The pain of the price hikes has been partially offset by an increase in federal grants and tax breaks for college, as well as by private schools offering deeply discounted tuition rates to lower-income students. But even with that help, some students like Bonilla are finding themselves locked out of the system.

Why is college so much more expensive now than it was 30 years ago? Economists fall into two main schools of thought in explaining the trend.

One theory, referred to as “Bowen’s Rule,” says that the decisions made by many colleges and universities—such as how many administrators to hire and how to spend its cash—primarily drive the cost.

A competing theory, called “Baumol’s cost disease,” posits that higher education is expensive because of outside macroeconomic factors that affect other businesses, like the cost of hiring highly educated workers.

In other words, it’s either the colleges’ fault, or it isn’t.

In their book, “Why Does College Cost So Much?” Robert Archibald and David Feldman, economists at The College of William & Mary, are firmly in the Baumol camp. They argue that a college’s hefty price tag isn’t actually surprising at all, given that it depends on the performance of its workforce—highly educated professors and teachers who provide a face-to-face service, not a material good.

Larger economic trends have jacked up the salaries of highly educated workers across the board in recent decades, while the cost of face-to-face services has also remained high, since technological advances do not necessarily make these services cheaper.

Feldman used the example of the cost of a haircut, which has also outpaced inflation in the past 30 years.

While technology has made factories vastly more efficient at producing goods for less money, technological advances have not been able to make the time a haircut takes shorter or replace the skilled person who has to give the haircut. College is like a haircut on steroids, since the barbers have PhDs.

“Higher education is an industry where there’s not a whole lot of productivity growth and not a whole of scope for productivity growth,” Feldman said.

The vast majority of most colleges’ budgets go to personnel, and that cost is unlikely to come down any time soon.

Benjamin Ginsburg, a political science professor at John Hopkins University, takes the Bowen view.

In his book, “The Fall of the Faculty: The Rise of the All-Administrative University and Why It Matters,” Ginsburg argues that a significant increase in administrative employees is in part responsible for college’s runaway pricing.

He writes that between 1975 and 2005, the faculty to student ratio has remained fairly constant at universities, while the student-to-professional staffer (such as an admissions officer) ratio increased from one to 50 to 1 to 24.

“As colleges and universities have had more money to spend, they have not chosen to spend it on expanding their instructional resources—that is, on paying faculty,” Ginsburg writes. “They have chosen, instead, to enhance their administrative and staff resources.”

Feldman discounts this argument. He points out that students demand a broader bundle of services from college now than they did 50 years ago, and that the price reflects that. Students want staffers to plan student life activities, career counselors, fancy dorms, nice gyms and up to date technology.

The economy as a whole, not just higher education, has also shifted to include more administrative positions in the past decades, he argues.

Some argue that colleges have had no choice but to hire more administrative staff, in part because they are so thoroughly regulated by both state and federal governments. Colleges are required to report to the government all gifts accepted from foreign governments, supply information about the salaries of coaches, and prove they commemorated Constitution Day every September 17, among other rules. Complying with the regulations requires staff.

“Externally imposed regulations increase the cost of doing business and that cost is passed on to consumers,” Terry Hartle, one of the chief lobbyists for the higher education industry, said.

State budget woes have also hiked the cost of many colleges. Sandy Baum, an economist and independent policy analyst for the College Board, says the price increases at public institutions have been driven by declining support from states, which have cut higher education in order to balance their budgets.

“It’s not actually that the colleges are spending more money on the students, it’s that they’re getting … much less money per student from the state government,” Baum said.

That means students aren’t necessarily getting more for their money, especially at public institutions.

Advances in technology might help colleges cut costs in the future, either by allowing them to have fewer in-person classes as more people take classes online or by streamlining some library costs, among other possibilities. But higher education experts say there’s no silver bullet.

“Colleges are looking at how to save money and they need to look harder because it’s just so expensive,” said Baum. She mentioned increasing technology, streamlining government regulations and cutting back on administrators as some possible things to help costs. “There’s no miracles there,” she said.

Jenny Bonilla didn’t have time to wait for a miracle. Bonilla’s father lost his job just days after she received her letter from Goucher, reducing the family’s annual income to $40,000.

Bonilla’s parents didn’t want her to take on $60,000 in debt, and knew they couldn’t come up with the money to help her on their own. They decided she should enroll in nearby Prince George Community College for two years and then try to transfer to a four-year public school from there.

“I applied to so many schools and then for me to end up at community college is kind of devastating,” Bonilla says.

Poor News Coverage Cancels News Papers


Comment:   About Poor Media
03-19-2013

Back Page News

Back Page News

It is amazing how the news media can put out a paper that resembles a rag and call it a news, and then have the nerve to expect people to continually pay for it, so what do they do is put it on the internet and then expect you to pay TEN Dollars a month for it when you only find an article once or twice a month that informs you about what your State or Federal Government is doing, the rest of the time they are printing stories about Baby Bumps, some person winning an award for some stupid thing, just like all these Actors who spend more time in front of some red blanket or walking on one.

This is fine if you only want to see Sports Scores, who is doing what in Sports, or some celebrity having too much pain while having a baby, or who in the world is getting a divorce, or who is getting married after getting that divorce, that is not NEWS that is RAG talk and should not even be published, if that is all you are interested in then print only that and put in on a stand at the local super market not on the door step of some ones home, or on the computer, leave that to the Rags, it is time that the news media starts doing what they are suppose to do, and that is tell the truth on what is going on in this Country, and don’t cover up wrong doings and real news.

In the mean time what people should be informed about is never published until it becomes a law, so why should any one want to buy a news paper that is not much better than these rags in the super markets, the media always puts the most important news in the grave yard section or in the adds, and just think they have the nerve to charge you an outragous price for it.

So if you want to know about some thing that your Stare or Federal Government is doing just wait until it is passed then the media will let you know, that a politician was lying to get in to office or they passed a bill that will cost you money, then the news will let you see it on the front page.

The people can not fight any thing if they don’t know what is going on, but I think that is what all Government Agencies want and that is keeping the people miss informed, so this thing they call a news paper is nothing but an arm of the Government, you do what they want 11950035921415595136nazi_historic_svg_thumbor they will take your licence away, this happens under a Dictator run Government.

Stupid Some Times More Stupid Then Other Times


Comment: I can see discrimination or profilling coming
03-10-2013

I can agree but I can disagree with what Government is trying to do, what if you have a good Teacher in a school with a good showing and the Principal does not like that Teacher because they do not do what the Principal wants, or they might want one of their good bodies there, then what do you have, than you have what is going on now, poor standard of Education, and then you have more strikes which is not good for the students THAT THESE teachers took the oath to teach, not strike, but they are teaching these kids it is alright to break the law to get what you want.

From what I have seen in the last Twenty years is that these Teachers are more worried about them selves then they are for the Students that they are there to teach, just look at the signs that they were carrying, it did not say NO STUDENT LEFT BEHIND, it said NO TEACHER LEFT BEHIND, now how much education was done at that time while they were still getting paid, if they go on strike no pay or back pay from going on strike, give them ZERO income for no education, like the old saying NO TICKY NO WASHY period, you don’t work you don’t get paid.

Peacemaker in Tacoma teachers strike deal could be doomed

Melissa Santos; Staff writer
Published: March 9, 2013

Barely 18 months after teachers in Tacoma went on strike over their district’s proposal to give principals more authority over teacher placement, the Legislature is poised to derail the plan that helped make peace between the union and school system.

Senate Bill 5242, which passed out of the Senate Wednesday on a 27-22 vote, would give principals veto authority over teacher reassignments.

Districts often move teachers between schools based on staffing needs, which are determined by student enrollment.

Under the bill that passed the Senate last Wednesday, principals and teachers would have to come to a “mutual agreement” about a teacher’s placement at a given school — otherwise, the teacher could be put on temporary assignment by the district, and potentially fired after eight months if he or she can’t find a permanent spot.

The bill would apply to all contracts entered into after Aug. 1 of this year. That means the three-year contract the district and the Tacoma Education Association hammered out in 2011 would be allowed to stand through its expiration date of August 2014.

But after that, any new contracts between the district and the union would be have to stripped of language that allows reassignments to be decided by a three-member committee of a principal and two teachers, said John Prosser, a union member who served on a committee to develop Tacoma’s new teacher displacement policy.

Prosser wrote a letter to the Senate Early Learning and K-12 Education Committee saying that Senate Bill 5242 “will undo the monumental work” Tacoma just completed.

“We’re in that healing phase,” Prosser said Friday. “Anything that undoes that process is just going to open up old wounds. This is the reason we went on strike.”

Republican state Sen. Steve Litzow, who chairs the Senate Early Learning & K-12 Education Committee, said the logic behind Senate Bill 5242 is that “the principal knows what’s best for his school.” The Mercer Island lawmaker introduced the legislation.

“It’s not about good or bad teachers,” Litzow said on the Senate floor. “It’s about the kind of teacher the principal believes he needs in his school to get the best out of his students.”

As a condition of the fall 2011 contract, Prosser and eight other committee members worked between November 2011 and June 2012 to develop the new rules in Tacoma, which the district just put into effect this year.

Dan Voelpel, spokesman for Tacoma Public Schools, said that district officials don’t want to see their newly developed process change, either.

“We love it,” Voelpel said Wednesday. “We wouldn’t be in favor of having any prescriptive changes.”

The state teachers union opposes the bill, as do the lobbying arms of the state principals association and the state school administrators association. Education reform groups, including Stand for Children, support the proposal.

“Mutual consent policies create strong matches between teachers and schools, which benefits teachers, schools and students,” said Anne Luce of Partnership for Learning, the education foundation of the Washington Roundtable.

Adrienne Dale, the president of the Tacoma Education Association, said that her union plans to fight the bill in the state House, which has a Democratic majority that is more likely to try to block its passage.

Should those efforts fail and the measure pass into law, Dale said that it would be “going backward.”

“We are allowed to bargain our contract language, and that’s one of our basic rights,” Dale said. “I would hate to see that disappear.”

Faults Advertising from Government on Gun Control


Obama Comment We Here you, Ha
12-21-2012

David_Dees_Obama_and_Gun_ConfiscationI must say He only hears what he wants and what won’t cut into his profits, this same thing goes for every Politician, but when it come’s to the Constitution, they will not do any thing to change any thing that can make them money, take for instance VIOLENT VIDEO GAMES, Nine times out of Ten, these shootings show that they were into them along with VIOLENT MOVIES, why don’t we start there, we can’t because it comes under the First Amendment, and we can not go against it, but yet they can go after the Second Amendment to take your rights away from protecting your self.

(Obama outlines effort to stem gun violence ‘epidemic’) Lets start with Violence in Movies, Television Shows, and Video Games, Oh and we can not forget about the News Media that covers and plays the same news story day after day, I am pretty sure the people involved, enjoy seeing it day after day, so lets start Education here with the people not the Government and their Court system that does what the Politicians want.christmas-video-games

Obama on gun violence petitions: ‘We hear you’

By Olivier Knox, Yahoo! News | The Ticket
12-21-2012

President Barack Obama on Friday told hundreds of thousands of people who have signed White House petitions urging him to do more to battle gun violence: “We hear you.” Obama also pleaded with Americans to mount a “sustained effort” to press Congress for action.

The president, in a rare video response to an outpouring of calls for action in the aftermath of the school massacre in Newtown, Conn., vowed to push to “steps that both protect our rights and protect our kids” but asked the public for help.

“I will do everything in my power as president to advance these efforts, because if there’s even one thing we can do as a country to protect our children, we have a responsibility to try,” he said. But “I can’t do it alone. I need your help.”

“If we’re going to succeed it’s going to take a sustained effort from mothers and fathers daughters and sons law enforcement and responsible gun owners, organizing, speaking up, calling their members of congress as many times as it takes, standing up and saying enough on behalf of all our kids,” Obama said.

“You started something and now I’m asking you to keep at it.”

World Wide Killings


Who is Really at Fault
12-18-2012

K praying-asking-god_svg_thumbMy deepest feelings go out to all the Families who have lost Loved one from War, Terrorist with a Gun, and some with Disabilities.

I put the blame on the Parents who don’t care what their kids are doing, because they are spending most of their time going to Parties, or hanging around the Local Pub Drinking and Smoking POT, but as far as teaching their kids right or wrong, they don’t have time, most of the time they don’t even know where they are, but they are not all the blame, the Government has their hand in the problem as well.

Who is to blame, it is not the gun, it is people who will do any thing to get their names in the News, but when it comes to doing something about it, I DON’T WANT TO GET INVOLVED, well you better look again, you are involved, the day you took it upon your self to get your name in the news promoting some thing that you don’t know what the outcome can bring, well that is what is happening around the world, but you will sit down and  promote and watch Violent Movies, Play Violent video games, and TV Cop Shows that promote Police Brutality, but these are the people who are trying to ban firearms, sex education, and religion in schools, but they will promote Alcoholic and Marijuana and what ever else they can do to get their name in the News, how do we know if they are not in cahoots to help disarm all Legal law-abiding Citizens who want to protect themselves.

Look a round you look what is happening around the World, people who don’t have any way to protect themselves are getting Massacred (a general slaughter, as of persons: the massacre of millions during the war that Politicians start.) is this what you want here in the United States, just because it is not here now does not mean it won’t be in the future, is this what  you want to leave your kids hiding in caves because they can not defend themselves.

Higher Education, More Destruction of America


American Education Today
11-05-2012

Education means party, party party, drink more beer sit and watch shows that show how stupid they are, Like, Spongebob Squarepants, He can be easily fooled, you can tell him any thing and he will believe you, Homer Simpson, loves Beer, TV, Donuts, Beer, TV and his stupidity, Daffy Duck is full of himself. He thinks he is smart, good-looking, and Americans sit and watch this garbage and think it is educational and what their kids should watch.

The real horror to this is that America is going to look like a war zone in the next Twenty year or less, and our kids and grand-kids will have no place to live, let alone have a job, Is what the Future is going to be around the world and here if people keep letting the Government and Special Interest Groups tell you what to do and who to Elect:?

Really, this is the real decay of this Country from lack of putting money where it belongs.

Here is a good example of:
One: money poorly spent by not planing for the future in the past, this is what you get.
Two: allowing homes to be built to close to the Beach or on a Flood Plain, and any one who does should get nothing for their Stupidity, for they knew that it could happen.
Three: the State, City, or County should never allow any permits to be issued. (Greed is Why, for Taxes, not Safety)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Take Global Warming, Obamacare, that is not going to destroy the world or this Country, People will through Greed for MONEY, that is what this is all about just another tax on the people for profit by the Rich.

But like I said at the beginning, that is what Education is all about today, Drinking Booze, thinking about your selves and Watching Cartoons and thinking that will solve all the problems of the world.

We don’t need Testing, we need in School Education at School not at home, if the Teachers can not teach in school then get rid of them and get people who will, if they go on strike get rid of them and get teachers who want to teach at SCHOOL.

Unless more jobs of all kinds are brought back, there will never be a time when this Country sees the days of the past when most people were working.

Where Is All Are Tax Money Going


This for all who vote and pass taxes and not knowing where they are going!

Sept, 12- 2012

Does any one care where ALL YOUR taxes go that are passed every year?

I don’t know about you, but I would like to know just where all this money is going, because I can not see any progress any where around that they were put on the ballot for, take for example, School Maintenance, why is it every time that they ask for money to maintain crumbling Schools, it ends up that they always need to build new ones to replace one that are falling apart, WHERE is all this maintenance bond money being spent?

It seems that every time a maintenance  bond is passed Teachers go on strike for more money, it sounds like it goes to Teachers, Administrators, and Unions, but not to maintain the School that it was suppose to go to.

This also goes for the States, Counties, Cities, and the Federal Government, where is all this Tax Money that they are collecting from the American Citizens going to, they keep saying that our highways are falling apart, but what are they doing about it, nothing but wanting to make make them Bigger and wider Highways, if they keep this up, this country will be nothing but one sheet of Asphalt and Concrete, and at this rate you might just as well for get about Global Warming and water conservation, because Asphalt and Concrete will drain any water right to the Oceans if they are still in existence, because Asphalt and Concrete will be one big radiant heater, and if you want heat you got it.

How much Tax money is Exported every year to rebuild Foreign Countries, then from this we have to borrow money to replace what they have spent, and in the mean time our Country is Crumbling, SO Where is all tax money going, I sure can not see any improvement in this Countries Infrastructure.

I see a lot of money being spent on things for Special Interest Groups and lobbyist like Stadiums, Eyesore land marks that down the road get torn down for progress, Turtle Crossings, and now Over passes for wildlife, but not for where it suppose to go.

And now they want to waste Money on telling schools on what kids are going to eat at school, or lose funding.

http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/pb-38-j-worst-weapon-kid-bring-school-215000284.html

http://news.yahoo.com/mixed-grades-healthy-school-lunch-rules-062652346.html

And remember back an article about students were not allowed to bring a lunch from home because they HAD TO buy the school lunch because of Obama’s new policy, school had to follow or lose funding.

And to go along with these articles, WHY are there more medical problems today then there were years back, for one, Doctors were Doctors, today they seem to be more interested in money then being a Doctors, look at how many of them have gone in to Private Practice, more money, then they want to know why Insurance has gotten so expensive, it does not take a brain surgeon to figure that out, or does it, it makes me wonder with the Education and mentality of the people in the last Thirty years, it seems that they are being brain washed from birth. You know that is not far from the truth, just look how much has been removed from school books for testing and not teaching.

Well they say that Alcohol and Smoking can cause birth defects and health problems, but why are they not talking about the affects of Prescription Drugs on Birth and Health problems that they have today, they do about Illegal Drugs.

They say they are not ALCOHOLICS, if that was the case, then why could they not wait for the stores to open in the morning, instead of at MIDNIGHT (12:00:01).

Now how many of them showed up to work this morning with a BUZZ on, to make it dangerous for others on the job.

HOPE THIS IS NOT YOUR CHILD

Some thing here does not look right, it looks like there was a deal made by the STATE, ( At least, that’s what they’re saying at Costco, which spent $22 million to get I-1183 passed. Prices there for 70 kinds of spirits are all lower than what the state sold them for, by 15 percent to mere pennies). to get lower prices, they don’t give Cigarettes a break on Price and TAXES, Booze should not get a  BREAK in PRICE or TAXES.
