“Has anyone ever calculated how much money has been spent prosecuting and incarcerating recreational drug users in the U.S. since the Controlled Substances Act was passed in 1970? Has this money affected usage rates for cannabis (or cocaine etc) at all since that time?

These are actual not rhetorical questions and I'm not looking for specific answers.”

“It's known from Japanese records that the last time it went (in 1700), the resulting tsunami wiped out entire villages in Japan more than 6000 miles away. What it did on our coast isn't known because the area wasn't heavily populated at the time, but by any credible account it won't take much to destroy San Onofre. It sits directly on the beach.”

“Now that I reread it the article claims seven great quakes in the Cascadia zone not 16 over the last 3500 years, but according at the intervals shown, at 312 years currently it's due. My understanding is that the increased probability of 37% mentioned in the article is due to more recent landslide data, which indicates 16 events in the same 3500-year span.”

“As a California resident I'm compelled to remind everyone that what happened in Japan not only can but eventually will happen on our west coast. Read about the Cascadia Subduction Zone, i.e. 16 great quakes (over 8, many over 9) in the last 3500 years, the last was 1700, and the tsunami is expected to be similar to Japan's (up to 100 feet). A still-fissioning San Onofre would be swept cleanly from its foundation and carried well into Orange County, if Diablo Canyon survived the initial tsunami (they claim it would, there's no practical way it could) its cooling ponds would fail not long afterward. Unlike Japan where the mess was blown out to sea (largely), our radiation would be carried over countless millions of people.”

In Same-Sex Marriage Fight, Catholic Church Gives More Than $1 Million, Human Rights Campaign Reports

Commented Oct 19, 2012 at 12:39:14 in Gay Voices

“In case anyone thinks this has something to do with morality, it's been established from the experiences of other countries that the only groups who suffer financially by recognition of gay rights (specifically civil marriage rights) are fraternal religious organizations. Especially the RCC, which has the highest percentage of gay clergy of any major religion. For centuries gay priests have been passing away and leaving their (and the families') properties and inheritances to the Church, a major portion of this money is or eventually will be lost to same-sex spouses in countries that recognize these marriages.

It's these same disingenuous Vatican rigamarole we get about opposite-sex marriage for priests: the actual issue is the money required to support families for their clergy.”

TheGlovner on Oct 19, 2012 at 14:40:57

“Makes some sense I suppose. That is why the RCC banned hetrosexual marriage of the priests some time back.”

“Funny how the same federal government (DEA) which still insists cannabis has no valid medical use also gave approval (FDA) to Big Pharma for a medication (dronabinol) with the exact same active chemical (THC). The feds no longer have any legal defense on this issue.

“You're right, they don't. They quietly moved the main ingredient in Cannabis, the one that gets you high, THC, from Sched. 1 to Sched 3. So THC is legal, but the plant that makes it, is not. Crazy eh? Meaning if I synthesize THC, and I patent it, I am legal. But if I grow it, I'm not. That's dumb. Just another big yay for big pharma.”

“"the Obama administration was not clear for nearly two weeks that the attack had been terrorism."

Nobody I've run into was clear on this question either during this time. Only the scope of the attacks in various countries gave its probable origin (as an al Qaeda anniversary present) away, and this took several days.

The more Romney uses this as a political weapon the more his party has egg on its face: it's the tired Rove tactic of trying to make a strength from a candidate's greatest weakness. The fact is, our last Republican administration failed to protect our country against the worst terrorist attacks in our history, that killed thousands of American civilians. If it was an al Qaeda attack, Republicans are ultimately responsible for the deaths in Libya.”
