The war on drugs IS tragicomic and it only exist because the government declared some vegetation and drugs 'illegal'.. while others like alcohol, cigarettes and prescription drugs are 'legal'. When you make something illegal, demand increases and the market will supply it. In other words the gov keeps the drug cartels in business with the war on drugs program.
Borders don't need 'protection'.. there should be no borders at all.. they only exist because of the tax-farms we live in.
Wow, lots of comments on here now! My comment is not about guns, but about self-defense.
I highly recommend taking a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu self-defense class. I've taken one and they teach you how to use leverage so that you can break someone's arm and get out of the situation. Or if you wake up to someone straddling you, to get in a position that you can choke them and make them pass out while you run away (or you could choke them to the point of death if you'd rather do it that way.) This works even if you are a small female trying to defend yourself against a large male. Awesome class. And good for those who don't want to carry guns or are afraid that they wouldn't be able to use the gun to defend themselves.
I think that if more people felt personally empowered, by getting stronger and healthier, less people would feel threatening or threatened. So I like the self defense classes, too, at part of this feeling strong and better about myself.
Good self esteem starts with a child getting it's needs met. The best world peace option to me is to mentor a child who's at risk. Or in some way meet the needs of children.
This video is just of a thought. Maybe kindness is still the key.
Morgan, I'm glad you're here to offer your opinion, but from viewing your first post on this thread you kind of came up shooting, if I may use this pun. There are some very bizarre and strong opinions in these boards because we are bizarre and strong people! You'll fit right in but remembering not to take things personally will help you benefit from the myriad of opinions.
