Smoking pot is not illegal in WA state, so can't comment on that.
Gays getting married was never a crime, just not possible. Not sure what you mean here.

1) that would be human trafficking and that would be a victim. Most prostitutes that are arrested are prostitutes by free will.

2) as opposed to subsidizing health care which makes people victims of tax theft? Also it doesn't cost the tax payers, it cost the hospitals which in turn may pass off the cost to the patients or "customers", but not involuntarily....you don't have to go to that particular hospital

3) crime: an action or activity that, although not illegal, is considered to be evil, shameful, or wrong....gay marriage is deemed wrong by state governments and thus not allowed

FEAR....
most people live their lives in fear and if they can seal from their neighbor to take away that fear they will justify it 1000 ways. It's funny to watch but still sad to see the affects on society economically.

Re: U.S. Healthcare Pirates

Getting back to medical systems, when I sailed to Cuba, virtually all the Americans that were there on boats were there for medical reasons. The ones I talked to were there because they could not afford treatment in the US. Of course all of their injuries occurred while in Cuban waters...

Sorry , didn't mean it that way. No races where harmed in the making of that comment.

How should I describe it. ? Caucasian , middle income , ABC1 owning boat person , help me here I'm somewhat unaware of these things, language may have moved on, since my public school attendance. I'm not sure of the politically correct phrases.

Yours humbly

Dave

I also pay for my boat, house and vehicle...I'm not given a free house by the government while driving an escalade.

Re: U.S. Healthcare Pirates

Like I said at least we all have sailing in common and that hasn't been outlawed...yet...except for Americans wanting to go to Cuba which is ridiculous.

Maybe they should institute a sign away any rights to sue and get a nice fat discount.
Man I just want to heal so I can go walk around deck.
Getting sick of staring at the coachroof.

Ok....really I mean it....my last post of the night but it has been fun...but this is just too good.


Massachusetts State Police announced on Friday they had confiscated 1,250 individual bags of heroin, many of them labeled “Obama Care.”
