Opinions!

Every day I read up on the current news the internet has to offer and here are a few things that I think.

Marijuana (Cannabis) Legalization/Decriminalization: I’m contently seeing articles floating around that are trying to get people to support the legalization/decriminalization of cannabis. A recent one I have seen was one saying that 40% of Americans supported it. Well you know what? 40% of Americans are stoners! Every fucking argument I have seen is that doing said action and taxing the sale of it would significantly increase money to the government and it would be better for everyone to just do it. Also comparing cannabis to cigarettes saying that the health effects of them are much worse then cannabis so it should be legal to put that up for sale too. Well I have a better idea! How about we just ban cigarettes too? But no, we cant. The cigarette industry is so massive and has so much money, has been around for so long, and has so many lobbyists that this act would fail. Cannabis is a psychoactive drug and that is the only reason people want it; because it makes them feel good. Learn to feel good without needing drugs people.

The Economy: We’re fucked 🙂

Quote – Rowan Atkinson

To criticise a person for their race is manifestly irrational and ridiculous but to criticise their religion – that is a right. That is a freedom. The freedom to criticise ideas—any ideas even if they are sincerely held beliefs—is one of the fundamental freedoms of society. And the law which attempts to say you can criticise or ridicule ideas as long as they are not religious ideas is a very peculiar law indeed. It all points to the promotion of the idea that there should be a right not to be offended. But in my view the right to offend is far more important than any right not to be offended. The right to ridicule is far more important to society than any right not to be ridiculed because one in my view represents openness – and the other represents oppression.
