    Prohibition: America's silent assassin.

    Prohibition isn't like a disease where we're still waiting for the cure to be discovered—we know the cure for this right now. This isn't like putting a man on the moon or inventing the Internet. It doesn't take some stroke of genius or feat of technology. We have everything we need right now to end this moronothon. Rarely in the history of mankind have we encountered a problem of such magnitude and consequence that is so eminently solvable.

    We are actually experiencing a de facto civl war between the majority (those who embrace reason and function in the real world of cause and effect) and the prohibitionists, who, numbed by their isolation and despair, are seeking meaning in a mythical world that can never, ever, be reality-based. A world of deceit and lies, of blood and corpses—a world of complete social and economic collapse.


    Well since he was clean for 23 years before he relapsed, that would put him in his early twenties when he was using originally. Apparently he went to rehab last year for ten days. Who goes to rehab for ten days? Obviously he wanted to use and left. I a, always amazed at those who know these people who OD say they had no idea. Hard to believe no one saw the change in his behavior which are obvious. Family and friends become enablers becausevtheyndont know what else to do. A vicious cycle begins.


    It seems as though actors, singers, and other "famous" people tend to do stupid things like drugs. Of course if you are a normal person and you die of a drug overdose there isn't a lot of reports out there. But since we hear about "famous or rich" people that do die of overdosing it is sad and also stupid. I mean these people have everything anyone could ever want and they od. Seems like they should be wanting to set a good example to their fans and leave the drugs alone. If life is so bad that you have to stick a needle in your arm then maybe you are in the wrong business.
