'three-fourths of an eternity' will almost get you to the 'window' too - bring lots of water...
Is it any suprise that the patient number is low when the cost from AtoZ (that was humor) is so high? Who is allowing the State to charge 150.00 for a MMJ card.Who really wants to pay 10.00 a "joint".This is after you shelled out another 150.00 to a doctor.What is with this scheme tying the MMJ program to the Food Stamp program? (you get 75.00 off if you get Food Stamps).I do not know if you still get the 75.00 off if your Food Stamp application is rejected.The problem is very clear.The cost of the program is just too much for people to bear.I tried to get the fee waived for low income disabled people but they quit answering my emails.I am one of those "chronic pain" people.I recieved osteomyelitis from the operating room at St, Marys hospital and a suregon had to cut away a lot of my neck and back (osteomyelitis is MRSA of the bones,in the case of an adult it commonly attacks the vertebre of the spine).At least St Marys could spring for the cost of my MMJ card.
Also the fact that they do not give me a receipt after my purchase. I have gone there about 5 or 6 times since it opened to get meds and I never get a receipt!
What a great editorial. I hope you've sent an enlarged laminated copy to the "FLAKE".
Dear Editor: after reading your piece, and the posts above, I shall not attempt any civil discourse, none will get through. Everyone's mind is deeply sunk in their own point of view, but I do offer some thoughts as I see it: Gun owners fear confiscation, fact. It will never be successful, fugheddaboutit. About as successful as the "war on drugs" I calculate. Passing more laws? Ok, but the idea is - effective"Will they CHANGE anything? Lastly, let's say you kill one of the Bill of Rights - 2nd Amendment. If that happens, any thought to what's next on the "slippery slope?" Like maybe - the First Amendment? Like your sacred right to "flip off" anybody you feel like? Then, you may be in danger if you do. Adolph took that away, mein fruend.
If more businesses would hire young people for part time and summer jobs, they would learn how to get along with folks and be a team player.
I spent 32 years in one job and learned first hand that those who have no clue to learn people skills and how to work with others eventually get surplussed.
That first job may teach you how to work with others and get along with your co-workers. That is a very important skill and it also teaches people how to keep schedules and report to work on time.
Ethics learned in that first job carry on to make you the person who is qualified for those higher positions.
Been there, done that. After a career of over 40 years working, I now teach. Too many folks just want to get by with the least amount of effort needed.
Good editorial mayor.
@cempiremtn would go to war against his/her neighbors to keep a gun.
Exactly. The madness of gun ownership: destructive power without a point.
Gee, ZKen thanks for telling me how I should spend the money that I earned by my own efforts. Perhaps you should spend your money on a visectomy. It could only help.
Aw, comon Renee, cut college students some slack. This is probably the only chance they'll ever HAVE for luxury.
The NRA is run by the "Gun Hole" Chapter. What are the "qualifications", to belong? Well, the the first is a deep seated inferiority complex. The next is greed. The third is no sense of proportion. Just think of all the things you could spend $1500 dollars on. A vacation, food for your animals or children, a refrigerator, car repairs, martial arts training, clothes, donations to programs for Military amputees, wives and children of firemen, police, first responders, mental health evaluations for their own children, etc. etc. It is all about justification. Justification for all the wasted money spent on "Assault weapons', that are useless in most excusable defense situations and which serve only to bolster a cowardly sense of inadequacy. Buy yourself a "golden Gun" for a golden future day of super heroic self delusion. Of course, there is the last and greatest group of "Gun Holes". These are the people that make mass kill guns, buy the people that vote for their greed, and the people that pander to and sell to the selfishly deluded who feel that they can't defend themselves with less than ten bullets. There you are, heroically mowing down the hordes of burglars, trespassers, neighbors dogs, teenagers, commies, tax collectors, immigrants, atheists, proctologists and all others who seek to invade the nether regions. What do mean honey, I'm a donkeyhole? If you had just bought those drum magazines we could have got em all!
cempiremtn, Civil War? Really? Which side are you on? The second Amendment is so out of date it needs to be Amended.
Old Man.... I will license my guns just after the last Criminal does....How bad do you want American Citizens disarmed...enough for a civil war? Really?
One day, All people will be required to have a license to have a gun and possibly have to have a liability insurance to go with it, just like a car.
That will be a great day!
Blah. Blah. Blah. When Sen. Manchin, who co-sponsored the back ground check amendment met with parents of some of the slain children he admitted that had it been in effect last year it wouldn't have changed anything. Tells me something. I love how Obummer had his hissy fit and demonstrated to the whole world what an insecure child he really is. He was pissed because he wanted it to pass in the Senate so it could be defeated in the Republican House. Then he and his buddies in the press could point fingers and accuse the G.O.P. of wanting to mow down the children that they didn't already starve to death. Just one more thought on gun control laws. Yesterday in Illinois ( home of some the strictest gun laws in the country ) a guy murdered 5 people. The strange part is that he did it with a gun. Guess we need more laws !!
Fix the educational system in Tucson. Kick out the unions and allow the teachers to teach. Reduce the fat at the top, you do not need administrators making six figure salaries plus very fat benefits, you need teachers.
Just in case all of you haven't been paying attention, there is a background check system in existence and it did not solve anything. There was a assault weapon bad in effect during Colombine, what good did it do. Most folks missed the point that this bill would only affect law-abiding citizens. Law enforcement and the varied attorney generals across the country do not enforce the existing gun laws, and that is a fact. See Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse analysis. If asked for, I can give at least 8 laws that could have prevented many of the shootings, had the federal government decided to hold criminals for their actions. Gabby's husband should be charged with a felony for lieing on form 4473, but because of his status, it will not happen.
Or Mayor is showing great leadership in many areas and he is right-on with summer jobs for our youth. Besides the needed training, establishing a work ethic, keeping them busy in productive activities the benefits of a "pay day" and the satisfaction of personal spending money is a super wonder reward in itself. Come on business leaders join the Mayor with your support.
"and borders don't exist, period"
Oh, yeah? Try taking a gun into Mexico. You'll find out about the meaning of the border pretty damn fast.
Maybe importing fewer low-wage foreign workers (legal and illegal)? Just a thought.
