War on Drugs QOTD


"I'm also less than thrilled with the "coddle the drug user" policy the current administration has announced, intending treat addiction as a public health issue, rather than a choice that has consequences. First, I have no sympathy for these people. They made their choices with the full knowledge of what drugs can do to them. Nowadays, you really have to be living under a rock not to know the effects. You make the choice, you live with it, or you take positive steps to make changes. I have no sympathy, and I certainly don't want my tax dollars being wasted on yet more useless programs."

Quote 2.0
"No one has the right what to tell you what you can put in your own body. However, If you step over the line and violate the property rights of someone else in a free society you'd get the book thrown at you. That is if the perpetrator survived the encounter."

Is it "Terrorism" yet?

"We know that they helped facilitate it; we know that they helped direct it," said Attorney General Eric Holder. "And I suspect that we are going to come up with evidence which shows that they helped to finance it. They were intimately involved in this plot." Said Holder of the Pakistani Taliban invlovement in the failed NYC bombing.

I guess now that it is NOT "Homegrown," “somebody with a political agenda who doesn't like the health care bill or something.” per Bloomberg all I want to know is, was Faisel Shahzad a terrorist. Or just the people who support the Constitution of the US.
