HAPPY FIFTH BIRTHDAY, KITTIES!

Happy birthday, kitties! Brisco and Bowler turned five years old today! I can't believe my babies are getting so old! Here is their annual birthday portrait. I trapped the brothers in the bathroom and put Garfield party hats on them, which they just LOVED, haha. As you can see, they are trying to escape--but not until Mommy gets a few photos!

I'm also including some pictures from 2009 when they were just kittens. So adorable! The last one, which I took of Brisco batting some yarn, won a ribbon in the county fair.

Dear Cindy,

My name's Alex Goldman and I'm a public radio producer. I was interested in talking to you about your anti-drug stance, and I was wondering if you could get in touch with me.

Thanks,
Alex Goldman

Alex,

How do you feel about drugs? Do you agree with me?

So it turns out this Alex Goldman guy wanted to interview me for a radio show he does, because he hasn't ever seen anyone as "anti-drug" as me. Gee whiz! I don't say anything that any other parent wouldn't say!

Anyway, I turned him down.

You must be a Fox News watcher. The kind that only likes their side of things. He, as a journalist, wanted to get an extreme side and you had an opportunity to spread your word even more because 1. No one can find this "book" of yours and 2. It's be interesting to hrlearvwhat you have to say without your copy and pasted rants. You do not say "what any other parent would say." Sure, no parent would want their pre-teen or teen to do drugs but once people are adults, it's up to them. You're not going to change people's minds because if you haven't noticed, "hasn't anyone read anything I've written over the years"...no, most people haven't. You are internet famous as you've said in comments before, you're infamous. Huge difference. You should have taken the opportunity but I think you're scared to have a voice beyond your keyboard. What happened to all of these anti drug videos you've been working on for YEARS. Just do one! Have a real voice, Cindy. And don't go accusing me of being a pot smoker...as you do with everyone who disagrees with you, you know nothing about me. If you really think your cause is worth the fight as more and more states adopt legalization then get out there and make yourself known, rather than just being that annoying chick that floods people's yahoo and YouTube accounts with asinine arguments with no scientific basis. You read what caters to your belief--as a "journalist" you should know this. Since you were a journalist...right? Unbiased views, cindy. Most won't even say who they are voting for to stay neutral. You could express your opinions in a much more eloquent way. You're fighting a losing battle until you can act like an adult and reasonably have a debate with someone. You talk in circles that exhaust people and they give up-that does not make you the winner. In this country-you are fighting a losing battle.

And just the sheer fact that all comment pend approval shows that you're unable to take all the criticism from others. I also haven't seen anyone as crazy against pot than you, he probably just wanted to talk to you about why. You missed out on a big opportunity. And this book? You want to interview people but then don't use them because their views don't exactly match up to yours. You are not a journalist. You write a biased blog. Time to wake up and see it, Cindy. There's a reason most of your posts don't get comments-you are not as well-known as you think you are. It's actually a little sad :-/ maybe focus your energy somewhere else because this whole internet fame thing is just not working out for you...

Cindybin said...

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for your comment! You have proven my point EXACTLY about why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES! I don't have to do a thing! You guys do all the work for me!

Thank you again and take care!

Cindybin said...

Dear Anonymous, Can't you see that the reason I have to moderate comments is because people have posted my personal information?? I never used to moderate comments! But then people just had to go TOO FAR and post personal information here. Also I try to limit the profanity here; I have received tons of comments I don't approve because they are filled with terrible language and crude, offensive sexual things. That again proves my point about why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES. Just because I say we shouldn't smoke pot, people would say all this crude, offensive stuff, and do that to a woman--a mom and a grandmother--post her personal information on the Internet for all to see, putting her life in danger, scaring her to death, etc. What is WRONG with you people??

And you people always think that I am SO AGAINST POT, like I'm just "crazy against it" and go around ranting day and night about marijuana. For the billionth thing, I never even THOUGHT about marijuana before all this! I never smoked pot, I've never even SEEN it! If you had read my book which has been online for years, the only time I was ever even NEAR any marijuana is when my college roommate and her friends started to light up when I was in a house with them my senior year. I had no idea they smoked pot. They never talked about it to me or anything. I thought they were NICE girls and would never do such a thing. Well we were all in a house one time--visiting someone, I think (this was 1979) and they all went to some room and closed the blinds and sat down on the floor. I was standing there with another girl, and I was puzzled. What were they doing? Then the other girl said to me, "I don't care that they do that--I just don't want to get caught." Then it dawned on me that they were going to smoke pot! I was shocked! But for half an instant, I thought, "Wow, I should go over there and join them! I've never had the opportunity to smoke pot and this might be my only chance!" But then a split second later I realized this would be stupid. I was 22 and engaged to be married. I thought, "If I were the type to want to smoke pot, I would have started several years ago, when I would have had more time to enjoy it. And I'm going to be married in a few months, and want to have kids eventually. What if I like smoking pot? I can't be a pot smoking wife and mother!" So I just stood there for a few seconds until the other girl started walking off, and I joined her and we walked back to our dorm room. I never mentioned anything about this incident to my roommate and her friends, because we were young and they were my peers. I did talk to her about it years later, after we were both married and had kids. She attributed this to peer pressure--saying that the other girls were calling her a goody goody her freshman year if she didn't join in. So that's how she got started smoking pot. But of course she and the other girls stopped using marijuana after they graduated. They grew up. They got jobs, got married and raised their kids, and of course taught their kids not to use drugs, just like virtually any other parent would! Again, what parent would ever raise their kids to grow up and smoke POT?? At any age?? What a thing to do!

Part 2)

And again, it's not that I'm just SOOOOO AGAINST MARIJUANA. As I said, I never even THOUGHT about marijuana before all this! I've never even SEEN it! But I've explained a billion times about how this all started 10 years or so ago on the old Yahoo boards where I had gone to dispel misconceptions people had about lowcarb diets! I'd had great success on Somersize, a controlled carb plan (see my blogs about that) and there were many stories on Yahoo putting down lowcarb diets, and lots of mean posters making fun of "fat people." So I went there to speak up about this. There were some marijuana stories there and I made one little comment about how we shouldn't use drugs and that you can get into trouble with the law if you get busted. I thought that would be the end of it, that people would agree with me! I didn't say anything that any other parent wouldn't say! How could anybody put me down for THAT? Well all heck broke loose. Pot smokers appeared out of nowhere and cussed me out, threatened me with death and bodily harm, attacked my religion, my looks, my sex life, made mean websites about me, and of course they all accused me of thinking that "weed" is dangerous and addictive and kills people and that anybody who smokes pot is a stupid, lazy, good-for-nothing bum and will never amount to anything, blah blah blah. And they all used the lame excuse that pot is safer than alcohol. Well I tried to explain myself, saying that I do NOT think that "weed" is all dangerous or deadly, and I know that nice, smart, successful people smoke pot (I have explained many times about my college roommate and her friends, who were all nice, sweet, studious, church-going young ladies, and my brother-in-law who smoked pot in college, and he was a straight A Eagle Scout!). I tried to explain that pot is against the law, and if you get busted, it won't help to tell the judge about your good grades or how safe "weed" is. Not where I live! The judge would laugh in your face and throw you in jail for making excuses for breaking the law! Then all the pot smokers accused me of being against pot ONLY because it's illegal. OH BROTHER. Again, I tried to tell them that I am just saying that it is illegal NOW. I did not make the law, I was just stating the facts, and that kids need to be aware of the trouble they can get into. I had seen kids in my area go through heck in the court room just for being caught with an empty pipe! Even if the pipe wasn't theirs and they never smoked pot in their life! And they all used the excuse that pot is safer than alcohol. I kept saying that we shouldn't smoke pot OR drink alcohol! How hard is that?? All I was saying is that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax and unwind, have "fun", etc. This is good morals and just plain common sense! Again, what parent would EVER raise their kids to grow up and use marijuana to get high and stoned? At any age?? Most parents try to raise their kids with morals, values and common sense to know that this is wrong.

Cindybin said...

Part 3

And I know many of these same parents who would NEVER smoke pot because "drugs are bad" think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol. But they are hypocrites! Alcohol is a drug! Just because it's legal doesn't make it right! And we will NEVER get the pot smokers to understand why they shouldn't use drugs, as long as people use alcohol! There have been SO MANY TIMES that I have made a comment about how we shouldn't smoke pot, and people automatically accuse me of drinking alcohol. "Yeah, but how much WINE do you drink, lady?" they'll say. Oh that is so infuriating! This is what I mean! This is why we all need to speak up against pot, to EDUCATE the pot smokers! They all honestly think that we are against pot because we think it's all dangerous and addictive and "ruins your life" and that we think nothing is wrong with alcohol. They honestly think this! This is why we need to EDUCATE them. I never even thought about pot before all this! But boy have you guys opened my eyes! Just your comment alone proves my point about why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever! It is not because of marijuana itself, but because of the people who use and defend it! LIKE YOU! Look at you! Instead of being a nice, decent, mature guy and commending and supporting me for saying we shouldn't use drugs, you come here and say all this mean, snotty stuff, putting me down, accusing me of being "crazy against pot", accuse me of moderating my comments because "I can't take criticism from others", etc. Oh brother.

And another big excuse the pot smokers use is telling me about how more people have died from peanuts than marijuana. Again, why do they always think that I'm against pot because I think it's all dangerous??? Nobody thinks that! Doesn't it even OCCUR to them that I am against it because it's a mind-altering drug?? And then they use lame excuse about how going to an amusement park is "mind-altering", and how sex or working out or watching TV or reading a book is "mind-altering", and am I against those, too?? OH BROTHER! They can't even see that I am talking about ingesting a mind-altering DRUG into our system! You can't compare reading or going to an amusement park or any other activities like that to purposely ingesting a DRUG into your system! And then they use the lame excuse about how pharmaceutical drugs are so dangerous. Well what does THAT have to do with smoking pot??? They honestly think that if only I knew of the dangers of pharmaceutical drugs, that I'd see how safe "weed" is and realize there is nothing wrong with lighting up a joint and getting high. I tell them over and over that you can't compare prescription drugs to smoking pot! Yes of course there are dangers to those kinds of drugs, but most people are taking medications to treat an illness or condition they don't want to have in the first place--not to get high and have "fun"! And if you get busted, it won't help to tell the judge that WEED is safer than prescription drugs or peanuts! Kids need to realize that!

And what book are you talking about? The "book" I wrote about my experiences on those old Yahoo boards and on lowcarb sites, etc.? That has been online for years. I thought people read it and understood where I was coming from.

Cindybin said...

Part 4

And for the billionth time, I have been trying for over two years to write an article on MEDICAL MARIJUANA. But I have yet to find a single decent person to interview to use as an example in my article! All the casual users rave about the medical benefits in order to justify getting high, and even the "medical" users I've talked to and seen online have been horrible, cussing me out, threatening me with death and bodily harm, attacking my religion, my looks, my sex life, making mean videos and websites about me, making fun of me for collecting dolls, and using lame excuses about how pot is safer than alcohol and cigarettes. How can I support them when they are like THAT?? I have collected THOUSANDS of comments and emails from "medical" users, supporters and growers who are just horrible. Now all I want to do is write articles and make videos using these comments, to show what people are like! Doctors and lawmakers and the general public needs to be aware of this! It's just SOOOO depressing. I had no idea people were like this. As I said, I never even THOUGHT about marijuana before all this, but boy have you guys opened my eyes!

But again, just keep posting, because all of your comments prove my point about why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever, with VERY STIFF PENALTIES. You guys all prove that with every comment you make! And you can't even see it! You honestly think you are making valid points! So I just sit back and let you post, and I hope all the lawmakers and voters and medical professionals read everything you write. I don't have to do a thing. You guys do all of it for me.

But that is why I can't understand how marijuana could POSSIBLY have been legalized in two states. HOW COULD THAT BE? Haven't the voters and lawmakers and medical professionals read the comments you guys have made? Haven't they seen the marijuana videos and all the comments on those videos? Haven't they seen the marijuana sites such as "Grass City", etc.? THEY ARE TERRIBLE! Heck, all one would have to do is go to that "NORML" website and realize that pot should be illegal forever! I remember several years ago I was watching a news segment on TV about how thousands of marijuana activists were in Springfield to campaign to get marijuana legalized for medical purposes. It was voted down because officials realized all the people there only wanted it legal for recreational use. A spokesman was interviewed and he looked just worn out and exasperated, and said, "They just want to get high!" You can tell he'd probably had to deal with tons of people just like you, and worse, I'm sure--judging from all the people I've seen online.

Cindybin said...

Part 5

And the only reason I say things like, “I thought I was so well-known online” is because I WAS well-known on those old Yahoo boards ten years ago. I was voted Yahoo Poster of the Year in 2004, there were websites made about me, I was even a Wiki entry at one time. I’m not saying this is a GOOD thing, because of course the reason I was so well known was just because I said we shouldn’t smoke pot. How sad is that? I mean, it really is ridiculous that just because someone says we shouldn’t smoke pot, that all this hoopla happens. I don’t say anything that any other parent wouldn’t say! What parent would EVER raise their kids to grow up and use drugs to get high and stoned? At any age??? All my friends and family agree with me totally on this! I have told them what has happened online just because I’ve said we shouldn’t smoke pot, and they can’t believe it! They all agree with me totally, they just don’t post on message boards about this. They don’t even KNOW about all the “weed videos” and marijuana websites and articles. And as I’ve said, I never thought about marijuana before all this, either. I never knew about any marijuana websites or stories or message boards or videos. I had no idea YouTube had thousands of marijuana videos. Most people don’t. Again, this all started just because I made one little comment on an old Yahoo story ten years ago about how we shouldn’t use drugs. And ever since then, I get tons of emails every day (most of which I can’t possibly read) with pot smokers accusing me of thinking that “weed” is all dangerous and deadly and ruins your life, and they use all the same lame excuses I’ve heard a billion times about how pot is safer than alcohol and cigarettes and peanuts and prescription drugs and how going to an amusement park is “mind-altering” and do I want to outlaw that, too, and they all accuse me of drinking alcohol and of never saying anything bad about alcohol. And they all use the excuse that pot is safer than cigarettes, and they accuse me of never saying anything bad about cigarettes, even though I have written tons against cigarettes. I wrote a long blog about the dangers of smoking and how my dad died hooked up to an oxygen tank after years of smoking. I publish this every Father’s Day on my blog. But have the pot smokers read it? No, of course not.
And I have said over and over how furious it makes us all when pot smokers try to compare cigarettes to pot. That isn’t the same at all! Of course we shouldn’t smoke cigarettes. That’s a given! But you can’t compare cigarettes to pot and alcohol! We don’t get high or stoned or tipsy or drunk from CIGARETTES! Doesn’t it even OCCUR to these people that we are against pot because it’s a mind-altering drug??? And then they say, “What do you have against having fun?” Like I’m AGAISNT HAVING FUN. OH BROTHER. They just don’t get it! I have said over course we should all have fun in life, but NOT WITH DRUGS! That isn’t what TRUE fun is! Can’t they see that?? We should have fun and enjoy life and relax and unwind the NATURAL way, through hobbies and interests and using our own minds, not by ingesting a mind-altering drug into our system! And then every time I use the word “natural”, the pot smokers pick up on that and laugh their heads off and tell me that “weed is natural!” Sheesh. They STILL don’t get it! When I say natural, I mean using our minds, and having hobbies and interests, not ingesting a mind-altering drug into our system! But they always pick up on that word “natural” and tell me things like “God put marijuana on the Earth for us to enjoy”, blah blah blah. I tell them over and over that just because God put marijuana on the Earth doesn’t mean He wants us to light up a joint, smoke it and get high! And if these people are all so religious, talking about God all the time, then they of ALL people should know better than to smoke pot! A religion is suppose to teach people to AVOID using mind-altering drugs, not encourage them to light up a joint, smoke it and get high or stoned! Otherwise, what is a religion FOR?

Cindybin said...

Part 6

That is one of the things that ATTRACTED me to the Mormon church years ago, was knowing that Mormons don’t drink, smoke, take drugs, etc. When I was growing up Episcopalian, everybody drank alcohol, tea, coffee, and smoked cigarettes. Even my parents! I even experimented a bit with alcohol in my immature college days, to be bad and cool and loosen up at a party. But I outgrew all that by the time I was 20 or so! And this was BEFORE I had religious beliefs. And then I saw the Osmonds on TV and knew they didn’t use these things, and they seemed so HAPPY. I wanted to know what was behind their beliefs, so I set out to learn more about the Mormon church—never thinking I’d actually join it. But the more I learned, the more I knew I had to join. Not just because of The Word of Wisdom and how Mormons don’t drink, smoke, etc. of course, but because of the DOCTRINES, how it is the one true church, with the fullness of the gospel. It has the correct doctrines and will bring you closer to Jesus Christ and the Bible than any other church. It is the RESTORED church, restored by Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. The Bible speaks of how the original church would fall into apostasy and that a restoration would be needed. Well the LDS church is this restoration. We have the Book of Mormon and other latter-day revelation that helps shed light on the more difficult-to-understand passages in the Bible, and really helps make sense of it all. But then every time I mention my religion to pot smokers and booze-drinkers, they blame THAT on my stance on drugs and alcohol. Even though I tell them over and over that I never smoked pot even BEFORE I became Mormon, and that I had stopped drinking before I became Mormon, too! And my husband isn’t Mormon and not even particularly religious and HE doesn’t smoke pot or drink alcohol! My whole point is that a grown adult should be WELL PAST the age where they’d want to use a mind-altering drug to get high, stoned, buzzed, relax and unwind, have “fun”, enjoy life, etc.
So many people think they have to drink alcohol to fit in and socialize. Guys think they have to drink beer to fit in and be a man. Women think it’s all sophisticated and elegant and romantic to sip “fine wine.” They always have you “raise a toast with champagne” at weddings. It shouldn’t be that way! Alcohol is a DRUG. Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it right! And then the booze drinkers always tell me that “Jesus drank wine.” They think that if only I knew that, I’d realize it’s okay to drink booze. Oh that makes me so mad. What am I supposed to do, tell God he is wrong and drop out of my church? Again, alcohol is against my religion! We have what we believe to be direct revelation from God saying that alcohol, tea, coffee, cigarettes and mind-altering drugs like marijuana are not for the body. I can’t just tell God he is wrong and drop out of the Church! I studied, pondered and prayed a long time before joining this church. I received a testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel! I can’t deny that!

Cindybin said...

Part 7

Yes we Mormons all know that “Jesus drank wine.” But we know better today! The Word of Wisdom was given to us in the LATTER DAYS, as part of God’s restored church. It HELPS us. Why do people want to reject that? They always try to “prove me wrong” whenever I mention about how we shouldn’t use alcohol. And then they always bring up about how alcohol is good for you in moderation. That drives me nuts! I have explained over and over that yes there may be some health benefits, but the risks far outweigh them. And I have written tons of blogs about how even in low doses, alcohol significantly increases the risk of breast cancer in women, along with liver and rectum cancer. LOW DOSES! And people think red wine is good for your heart; well studies show you’d have to drink hundreds of bottles a day to get any benefits, and it’s the grapes, not the alcohol! Alcohol is a toxin! It poisons cells and affects every hormone in your body. I can quote doctors about this! But the booze drinkers only want to focus on the health benefits, so that they can feel justified in continuing their drug use. It feels good to consume alcohol. They like the good feeling they get when they use this drug. I can understand that. It is “fun” to feel good. But my whole point is that that is not what TRUE fun is! People need to realize this!

Cindybin said...

Part 8

And SO many people think it’s okay to drink alcohol “responsibly” or “in moderation.” Yet would they smoke POT in moderation? Of course not. They all say, “Everything in moderation.” Well does that mean cocaine in moderation? Heroin in moderation? And we will NEVER get the pot smokers to understand why it is wrong and just plain immature to use drugs, as long as nice, decent people think nothing of using a mind-altering drug in the form of alcohol. Pot smokers always tell me about how pot is safer than alcohol. I tell them we shouldn’t use EITHER of these things! But people think it’s all romantic and sophisticated to sip “fine wine”, and guys think they have to drink beer and watch “the big game”. I once talked to a guy in a lowcarb group; he and his wife were the nicest couple you’d ever want to meet, parents of four great kids. He told me he would bring his wife wine and cheese for a romantic evening, and of course his wife just swooned over this. I tried to explain to him that alcohol is a drug, that a casual booze drinker is no better than a casual pot smoker, except they aren’t breaking the law. But he couldn’t see it. And I tried to explain the health risks of alcohol, how even in LOW DOSES, alcohol significantly increases the risk of breast cancer in women, along with liver and rectum cancer. But all he could say is “I just don’t agree with you, Cindy.” Well how could he disagree with legitimate studies? And how could he disagree that alcohol is a DRUG? Ask any doctor or go to any drug abuse website! It is the most widely used and abused psychoactive drug in the world! Just because it’s legal doesn’t make it right! And how could he disagree that he and his wife are just like a casual pot smoker except they aren’t breaking the law? But see, they were members of one of the mainstream churches that don’t teach that alcohol is wrong. So he just couldn’t see it. And he and his wife liked the good feeling they got from using this mind-altering drug, so they would justify it in any way they could. Here I was trying to HELP him, trying to get him to realize that a grown adult should be well past the age where they would want to use a mind-altering DRUG to relax and unwind, be romantic, celebrate, socialize, get buzzed, etc., and it did no good whatsoever. I can’t help but think if people like THEM could not see why it is wrong and just plain immature to use drugs, then what hope is there for the REST of the world—they REALLY immoral and immature pot smokers and such? No wonder the pot smokers can’t see why it’s wrong to use drugs! It’s so depressing.

Cindybin said...

Part 9

And what is really sad is that there are MILLIONS of people just like that couple. Millions of nice, decent people I’d pass on the street, who are educated, polite people, yet they see nothing wrong with using alcohol “in moderation” or “responsibly.” They can’t see my point about how a RESPONSIBLE person would not want to use a mind-altering drug, period! So yes, no wonder so many pot smokers can’t see why it is wrong and immature to use drugs. They honestly can’t understand. And I have tried to explain how when we were little kids, we never even THOUGHT about using a mind-altering drug to get high, buzzed, have “fun”, etc. We were busy playing, reading, celebrating birthdays and holidays, riding our bikes, just enjoying life without any kind of mind-altering drug like marijuana or alcohol. So what HAPPENS to people when they reach a certain age and suddenly want to use a mind-altering drug? I remember the exact moment I suddenly realized I wanted to use alcohol. I was in my late teens and realized that hey, I could try some booze, and maybe that would help certain problems I had. And it did—temporarily. But I knew I couldn’t keep using a mind-altering DRUG for these reasons! I would have turned into an alcoholic! But even if you aren’t an alcoholic, it just isn’t right to use a mind-altering drug for celebrating, socializing, getting buzzed, etc. Again, people need to GROW UP and set an example! And they need to realize that it is NOT okay to drink “in moderation” or smoke pot “responsibly.” My whole point is that a RESPONSIBLE person would not want to do that in the first place!

Edwin Estrada said...

What is wrong with you judging others, shame on you, if you are a Mormon, then truly you should know that you shouldnt judge others as is written inLuke 6:37... And by saying that there should be a high penalty for smoking pot, you basically want to do harm to them, and the bible also say that you shouldnt wish harm onto others, and by saying that there should be a high penalty on smoking pot, you are basically wishing that person harm, instead of praying for that persons well being, as the bible states, you are basically sinning by doing all those things, I pray to god that you don't keep on making the remarks that you do, by judging others, you don't only hurt them, but you also hurt yourself by doing so... May good have mercy on your soul

Cindybin said...

Dear "Edwin", I just checked your site and you use tons of profanity and talk about how pot can't kill anybody, etc. Yet you claim to be so religious, talking about God. Yeah right. What a troll. And then you are yet ANOTHER person who thinks that we are against pot because we think it kills people. This is why we all need to speak up against pot--to EDUCATE you guys!

You know Cindy, people wouldn't post your personal information if you didn't post so much information in your comments. You can get your point across without writing an essay. And no, I do not use drugs or condone the use of them. However, I also don't yell at others for expressing their opinions. Take this comment for example, not a single exclamation mark was used.

Cindybin said...

Dear Anonymous,

You set a terrible example! If you don't use drugs and you don't condone the use of them, then why don't you SUPPORT me and commend me for saying we shouldn't use drugs? I don't say anything that any other parent wouldn't say! All I'm saying is that we shouldn't use mind-altering drugs to get high, stoned, buzzed, have "fun", etc. and that you can get into serious trouble if you get busted! That is ALL I am saying! Yet the pot smokers automatically assume I think that "weed" is dangerous and addictive and ruins your life and turns you into a stupid, lazy, good-for-nothing bum, etc. I am trying to DEFEND myself and EDUCATE the pot smokers! Can't you see that? I wouldn't have to do this if they just understood!!!

BakedCupcake said...

No, we get it and understand. We just also disagree and don't care.

I know you support medical use(well, I have seen you say a few times "well now I'm against medical, too!" ... But let's just say you support medical. I know that you're aware pot is harmless. I know you think it is wrong and immature, and it should be illegal forever because you don't like pot smokers. I know you think it is wrong due to religious reasons (and I know you were against it before you were religious too.) I know your husband doesn't smoke pot, or anyone you know, you think it's wrong and immoral because people benefit from it, and you deem that to not much fun.

..... But guess what? None of that matters. What's the point in even rambling in about all this? It doesn't matter. Not one iota. I don't care if YOU think it's wrong. That's your hangup, not mine. I'm not going to let the opinions of others alter my life. I don't care if you don't know anyone who smokes pot. I don't care that you think I'm setting a bad example. I don't care that YOUR church would condemn the use of pot. My church is all for smoking a big a fat bowl! I know that you know it's harmless, and I know you say I shouldn't smoke pot because you think it's terrible an wrong ..... But once again, I don't care!

I understand what you're saying, I just adamantly disagree with almost everything you're saying, and as I've said many times now; I don't care. I really don't.

And THIS is why we all need to speak up against pot and why it should be illegal forever, with very stiff penalties!

Why, just because not every shares your opinions?
