[quote][b]THX1138[/b] - @BAGGS: Theres no point arguing with you when you clearly know nothing about weed. Good luck getting through life with your head so far up your @$$ that you can't learn anything new.
See, now there you go again with a false sense of reality! I don't have to learn a damn thing. You singled out everything wrong with marijuana culture in one post, congrats!
!. Every marijuana user by the time they finish that first joint is an expert on EVERYTHING AND ALL HISTORY. Yet, it doesn't stop when the high wears off, users babble on all the time while family and friends roll their eyes.
2. Every marijuana user believes that all people should share their in-lighten view on life, then act like a nasty paranoid jerk when folks just really don't care. We have just bought into the government propaganda.
3. Every marijuana user complains that alcohol is just as bad there for that proves I should be able to smoke; thinking that gives them some moral high ground because people who don't agree when them are just protecting their own rights to drink. Two wrongs don't make a right; I won't mention Kantian ethics at this point but I could knock down every version of the "Stoners' Moral Argument." I guess I'm pretty old school but I don't obsess over "Escaping Life" as my every day concern.
@THX1138: I've never wasted a mother loving dollar on marijuana and I don't have to worry about losing my job over a drug test. I'm all broken up that you have anxiety if you see or talk to law enforcement officer, but you value escaping life by getting high over integrity in your actions. I already have the character and honor to get me through the rest of my life son. You are foolish to thing I care about your names or opinions. I'll be the one happily retired when you are still working to pay for the health insurance from the 30 - 40 years of smoking up.posted @ Thursday, August 15, 2013 - 18:02
@THX1138: Is this my old debate buddy? I find it funny minion is picking up from where I left off years ago. Every damn post three or four marijuana users turned every story on this site into a "free the oppressed cannabis users" campaign for 6 months. I was kinda hoping you fools would run all of Scoop and the ABH's advertisers off. I miss SSB, at least his sexist, racist, block head fool's humor is better than whining marijuana users for fake studies and every who doesn't support us are hypocrites.

Your boy Reid has shut down Congress, nothing is allowed to pass from Congress to the President's desk because they were protecting his record the last 2 years. The House has been passing all kind of grandstanding symbolic bills dead on arrival of Reid's desk. Maybe Obama will send another budget, and just like the only one he sent in the first term, it too could fail approval without 1 single democrat vote. Now that's style right there.posted @ Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 23:21
"If we don't run Chris Christie, Romney will be the nominee and he will lose to Obama." - Ann Coulter at CPAC 2011.
She was right about Romney losing, but Christie?!? Doesn't hold true after the storm. The party will never put him up for the job after the hug and walking hand and hand with Obama. Many folks will blame that coverage for kicking Romney off the public's mind for the last days of the campaign. - BAGGS at ABH 2012.posted @ Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 23:10

You would be incorrect chicken little, with adversity there is profit to be made, baby. Have never said I hate the man, he's just a freaking lier and I tend to debate statesmen of his low caliber as one would PM's questions in the British House of Commons. I havent post on ABH for months until this week, but I knew when Paul Ryan was picked by Mitt they were going to lose the Rust Belt and any Purple States. I agreed with Newt about Ryan's budget, Right Wing Social Engineering and would backfire in the end. Ryan was apart of congressional spending BS for 14 years, the original fiscal conservative movement formed to fight that BS = "Tea Party." Then the damn Social conservatives stole the reins and highjacked the grassroots movement trying to impose their morals on everyone again. So much for that, fiscal sanity is dead now. Only hopeful thing is, the world has changed since 2008. Barry's Bunch can't borrow foreign money like they did the first term. That means taxing the crap out of voters, and capping how much free stuff they give away and guess were that leads for the next election?!?!posted @ Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 22:40

@HailToAlmightyUGA: Truck load "pure nonsense," too cute. What's the number of minium employees, before the federal law requires participation or be subject to penality? It's in there, OSHA and other federal regulations like this program were not designed for really small businesses like Bubba's Handy Hammer, Inc.
Don't get me wrong man, I say penalize the crap out of any business or industry that uses illegal labor.. I know it will hurt our state and national economy for a few years, maybe a decade, but imagine the jump to income and take home pay for citizens. Then when U.S citizens have more money to spend, businesses around the world increase profit, The Republicans won't stop illegals cause they like profits and don't want to scare away Latino votes. Democrats won't stop it cause they like scaring the Latino Community for votes, and don't kid ourself, there are just as many Democrats up north making FAT money off illegal labor as well. Securing the border is one of the first steps, We really want this to stop = $1,000 a head/per day paid, no freaking business in the U.S would dare hire an Illegal.posted @ Wednesday, November 7, 2012 - 21:11

Here's my take on what the Lawyer for the defense is trying to due. First off, he's playing on the recent federal rulings about law enforcement checking immigration status as a justification for a traffic stop. I believe he's going to argue the state's driver license law, requiring all residents to obtain a GADL within 30 days of residency, in fact constitutes a wide spread random check of immigration status for all residents. He may try to show its a back door for law enforcement, they don't have to check the status of citizenship; they can just issue citation and or arrest for failure to produce a GADL during the traffic stop and then ICE may be alerted at some point when the question of why the person doesn't have a GADL is answered at trial He may introduce the arguement that the result intrudes on federal immigration law jurisdiction and is therefore unconstitutional for the state to perform.
I hope the GA Supreme Court hands the Defense a big 10th amendment slap down. The State of Georiga has the constitutional authority to mandate all residents obtain a state issued drivers license. That law was written decades before recent attempts to stem the tide of illegal immigration and is not in fact an immigration enforcement tool. Yet, the Defense may be hoping The Court finds that illegal immigrants should be issued a GADL to remove conflict with any federal laws or rulings. I would find that possibility a mind boogling outcome, but that's the dream of the illegal immigrant lobbist. Give those who don't follow our laws rights of their own that legal citizens don't have. These are sad times we live in indeed.posted @ Tuesday, November 6, 2012 - 02:30

Standard biomedical manufacturing practice is keeping full quality assurance records which would enclude: employee training, written and approved company Standard Operating Procedures for all task, maintenance and sanitation of equipment logs, enviromental testing logs of "Clean Room" manufacturing, and quality control testing logs of a portion of each production lot/batch to assure the product meets the SOP before final shipment. For an event like this to occur it wasn't just a few quality control lab techs doing a bad job, management has totally failed it's oversight duty. I'm curious as to what changes happened after the company's last State Inspection. Did someone begin cost cutting on staff hours or materials needed for sanitation, quality assurance, and quality contol testing? I hope that state of Massachusetts does a full review of it's inspection process and double checks that no failures or irregularities happen on it's end as well. I'm not accusing them of wrong doing, but their are cases of inspectors becoming to friendly with the companies they provide oversight. I agree with the FDA chief, Congress should look at writing law to give them the power of oversight for these special businesses. This issue is a national issue, one which the FDA is better equipped and has more resources than any state government can bring to bare. The state of Massachusetts will not pay the cost of the CDC's and FDA's efforts to find, warn, aide the victims of this outbreak. That fact alone should move Congress to give the FDA authority to inspect and hopefully prevent another event like this in the future.posted @ Tuesday, November 6, 2012 - 00:52

Have you read the law, son? Bubba has got to hire more than a truck load of labor before he's in violation. That ain't going around nuffin, ya hear! But I believe we have agreement, well you, I say you might be tellin' tales out of school, but Bubba shouldn't be hiring them in the first place. Ya know what would be more effective and more of a civic duty for folks is to demand contractors who provide them service to not use illegal labor. I make sure contractors are full insured before they step on my property which cuts down a bit on illegal workers and I have cancelled service from a roofer for breaking that insurance clause that I insist on because I recognised the men from the benches at Home Depot.
What rights do you say he has, sir? The attorney for the state spelled out the legal precedent for the charges in his statement. A citizen must obtain a GADL within 30 days. The man is an illegal immigrant, therefore cannot apply and is in fact in violation of that code. Presentation of a Mexico issued DL does not statisfy the code if he has one to give the court, If you'll notice, this is a minor traffic violation, the GA Supreme Court would not sentence the man for deportation. ICE may request he be held for deportation, but that issue wasn't mentioned in this article.posted @ Monday, November 5, 2012 - 23:17
