Kyu, you may be right.  one must have 'tiger blood' to spend time in Branson, MO.

Charles, when you speak of a plan to win, I feel that's more in the Charlie Sheen sense than a rational, thought out course of action.

who is Poe and what's his #???  if he can do something about this i'll call him myself!

No, but I'd love to legalize pot, which is the number one cash crop right here in the good old USofA. 

 

I'm with Joseph P.  Poe!

you mean YOUR truth.  sorry, Charles, but you do not possess absolute truth any more than the religious claim to.  to claim that your views on such a complex issue such as legalization of a drug vs. the already legal other drugs like alcohol or nicotine is ignorant at best, delusional at worst.  have you even smoked pot?  you don't even know the basics, which is obvious since you seem to think that we get our pot from Columbia.  you should focus on things you do know about, although i can't quite figure out what they are yet. 

 

also, please explain what you are doing that is so brave.  you are writing on an Atheist blog and starting a book of some sort.  and this will somehow save us all???

Huh?

Maybe I am missing something - it's happened before. This post is very confusing to me personally.

I would; however, like to point out not all alcoholics are homeless. Not everyone who uses alcohol are alcoholics (I apologize truly for your brother). Though I do question the sanity of religious people, I can't recall the White House ever being blown up. I believe it was set aflame once, but blown up? Maybe I need clarification.

Can we call Poe on Charles, yet?

"Danny if you are going to be an atheist you must understand the importance of being a man of principle. Everyone that has a brain will think less of you if you say things like that. My mind went straight to the Columbian drug cartel after reading that statement. They supply the U.S. with pot, don’t they??"

 

Charles, i have a brain - i'm quite certain of it.  and yet i don't think less of Donny or anyone else who are ambivolent or supportive of the legalization of marijuana.  how is this an Atheist issue? 

 

frankly, i think less of YOU for your absolutism.  comments such as yours really have no place in this or any other AN forum.  seriously, you call Donnie a coward b/c he is not an activist.  perhaps he has a wife and kids, a busy job, family obligations, etc. and doesn't have time.  how can you make these claims without knowing him as a person.  yet you call him your 'friend'.  he says he drinks Scotch, so you call him an alcoholic.  you have a very strange mind, my 'friend'.

All I can say is wow, really?

I thought this to be an interesting story and, of course, the quote really got me going.
