    You think people steal because drugs are illegal? That is just ridiculous.

    Let me teach you how it works buddy. You shoot heroin for a while. Soon you've spent every dollar you have on it. But you still need more to keep straight. You probably steal from your parents first. Then when they kick you out you start robbing houses. Eventually you are jacking people at gun point because you are desperate.

    You think if it was legal that would change? If you're thinking about weed that's one thing. But there will always be junkies and junkies steal.

    And I was never justifying immoral behavior. I was just saying that I hear a lot of people *****ing about being "watched" but I doubt anyone was actually watching them.
    I don't want to be watched, but I've never felt like I have been.

    I think you are missing a step
    bags are expensive-ish.
    If someone who has a 10 bag a day habit can get bags for a nickel on the dollar cause the substance didnt have to make it through customs in someone's butt, they wouldn't need to steal as it is so cheap.

    Gutter winos drink cheap a$$ garbage. My alcoholic friends hold down jobs (kinda) and get belligerent by 4pm. I think some junkies could function in society VERY VERY HIGH. They can function high for one reason or another, and they can function better if they don't have to worry about being priced out of their next fix. Some will spiral down, others would eventually tire of chasing the dragon and seek help

    If price isnt a factor (to necessitate stealing) and 'tax money' isn't being spent on interdiction and jail then 'tax money' can be spent on social programs and helping treat the sickness as opposed to treating a sick person like a criminal.

    does that compute or am I living a fantasy

    and NJNY you are being watched, your buying habits are noted via any online purchases and ads are sent to your inbox. google admits to reading your mail and selling the info to advertisers

    then NSA and other agencies buy (with your tax dollars)your data from the companies

    you are watched, likely you are an ok person who doesnt send out red flags, but you are watched

    Heroin is not expensive. It's actually very cheap. That's why so many turn to dope when they can't afford Oxy's anymore. And making it legal will not make it any cheaper. It will probably cost more because there would be tax added.

    there is NO WAY an illegal substance would go up in price once legalized. Even if it were taxed up to its original street price, you would have tax evaders undercutting the 'official cost' You made up a falsehood to support your erroneous argument.

    much of your points and arguments are not based on logic but on your perceptions of how you think things are

    You say you dont feel like you are spied on, so none of us are being spied on: wrong, I can cite many articles to the contrary

    1st - the price WOULD NOT go down from $5 a bag if it was legal. Even if it went to $4 you'd still have the same problems. Obviously you've never been around any junkies or in a neighborhood where it's a problem. NONE of what I said is false. If you think so you are just wrong.

    2nd- everyone arguments are based on their own perceptions Einstein.... Your argument is that the "man" is watching us all. And you back it up with articles you've read. Cite them all you want, but have you ever had an issue because you were spied on or know anyone that has? Not just a guy that told a story online? I know I haven't.

    You live in fear of something that does not impact your life

    Ho many deserved it? You make it sound like cops are walking down the street capping people. That's just ridiculous.
    How many innocent people do you know that have been shot by a cop? I know I don't.
    If a cop shoots an innocent man he deserves to be punished just like anyone else. If a cop shoots a person that is threatening others lives, they deserved it.

    thanks for the Einstein compliment, but I am assuming it was sarcastic, name calling much .....

    So, people 'deserve' to be killed eh...glad you feel as though cops should be judge jury and executioner. there are nonlethal technologies that could incapacitate SUSPECTS and bring them before a judge.

    Also, your argument about perception has a point, however, you have been shown new data and still refuse to believe it (goosemagoos article). You are like a religious zealot. So you are saying that since I dont have firsthand experience, its not happening...that makes no sense. I have never calculated the thrust of airplane or Bernoulli's principle' however airplanes are still flying around.

    THERE IS AN ABUNDANCE OF PROOF OF CONSTANT Surveillance. Your denial of this makes me suspect you have an agenda, thus I return to my original shill comment.

    I do apologize for the Einstein comment.

    I do not believe cops should be judge, jury and executioner. But cops only shoot people when there is the threat of danger is lethal. They don't just shoot someone that is not a threat. Are there bad cops that do bad sh*t, yes. But saying it like they just shoot people that don't like is crazy.

    I DO think that govt is corrupt and they do horrible things. But I think people exaggerate the being watched thing. One person in an article saying that something happened to them does not change my opinion.

    You want me to change my opinion based on some guy saying the cops showed up at his house and he did nothing wrong... And I'm saying maybe you could base your opinion on what you see with your eyes every day.

    no need to apologize. I am an @$$hole. I can handle it. I was pointing out the inconsistency in your comments.
    I think you need to expand your horizons. There are more cases of surveillance than 'just one guy at work with a poorly worded search engine phrase' There are more cases of brutality and murder committed by cops than 'just one guy'

    just youtube police behavior.....and those are the ones that were on video......many more cases that werent recorded.......some towns are requiring cops to wear camera mounted vests. This is a step int he right direction (ironically)

    I was looking at buying a mattress online.....presto all of my ads on the side of my browser start showing matresses....the computers and software do the spying, alarms get sent to humint for threat categorization

    I think we agree on what's right an wrong... I just don't think it goes on as much as some think. That statistic, for instance, of how many people were killed by cops. I bet if we looked at each one 99.9% would be justified.

    It's easy to youtube police behavior and see the .01%... But where's the youtube video of the 99.9% that are doing the right thing? There are good and bad people in ALL professions. I like to think that most are good, but that's just me... The problem is when you get a bad one in a position of power it's dangerous.

    I agree with company's spying. I know that goes on.

    Here you are though :rolleyes:

    This place "died" because the forecaste model went to shchite. The other site was promised to have a forecaste and that never materialized. Also the UI over there is painfully outdated and annoying. I was on forums in 1999 that had a better UI. Again, promises made about updating it and never came thru and we're almost at the 2 year mark. I just couldn't get into it. FLsurfdogs thread is tight though...
