As it states in post one, this poll was started to illustrate to those who aren't too bright, that the vast majority of Accy Webbers don't want recreational drugs legalised.

I'm beginning to understand why some seek to escape the reality of their lives.

It can't be easy.

31 votes, out of how many members? And that is a vast majority, is it
Granted 77 percent voted no, but that's of who voted, not of accywebers

Take what crumbs of comfort you can, if they fill a hunger in you.

People here, and throughout the land, don't want recreational drugs made legal.

That is clear, to all but the dimmest of people.

Carry on banging your head against that brick wall.

Then go and pop a paracetamol.

Seriously, what with everything else you've shown that troubles you, I thought you had it bad.

Now we've seen you also have a Napolean complex.

Mine is bigger than your's.

Almost funny.

I've always found those who needed to brag, mine's bigger than your's, my partner's back on fifty grand now he's at Heysham, do so to mask some inner inadequacy.

Either that, or you're a masochist, who has an addiction to public humilation. We already now from the Sunday papers, about the spanking scandal.

People here don't want your drugs legalised.

Is that too hard to take in?

Carry on, here, there, in cloud cuckoo land, bleating on, bringing ridicule on yourself, and from the more generous, pity.

You will not be able to change this.

It's a fact.

Reality.

I know you aren't that keen on reality, and like to have your little trips away from it, but it's true.

Fact.

In any election it's the %age of those who votes that counts -not the %age of the total possible voters.

Look at the turnout in the General election -or worse even in local ones...mostly you are dealing with apathy or at worst - people who just don't give a damn.

On a completely different tack -I am greatly dis-heartened by the fact that twice recently on this thread I have received red karma.

Not for the fact in itself -which is fair enough -but for the fact that it has been twice unsigned. Say what you think -say it to my face, I won't be upset and will take it as your valid opinion. Yours has as much weight as mine.

Please though have the strength of your convictions and say who you are as well as your comment. There is nohing worse than a coward - so your comments are worth less than nothing without your signature.

Mine is always signed.

Where possible - as mostly it is green - I will thank your for your interaction - otherwise am willing to have a personal chat, you will find that I am a reasonable soul.

I stand by what I say...have he courage to defend your stance and your words by signing them.

Gordon, I agree with you. I was just making the point in reply to others on the thread.

It was me you mentioned te sewage system too

Surely to goodness there's only one of you, who struggles reading what's already been said, or who forgets what's been written only a post or so before?

The inbulit sewerage system isn't there just for you.

It's there to deal with all the illogical crap we have to wade through.

When the few unfortunate souls have gone cold turkey, and develop severe contstipation, I'll put down my crap scoop, and go and have a cup of tea.

If you're like me, just laugh.

If you're a better person than me, less mean, which I have no doubt you are, try and show a little pity for those weaker than yourself. Who are too afraid to say what they think.

Either way you look at cowardice, just be glad it isn't something that festers away within you.

Karma, shmarma.

I had some unsigned good stuff today.

It was their choice it was unsigned.

I pity them, for finding some daft thing I posted witty.

Bless 'em.

I agree with you, I always sign my Karma and was not responsible for any red in this case. I have had a lot of unsigned stuff in the past and I agree it is cowardly.

It's a catch 22 situation, a moral dilemma.

Why -thank you both - to be honest, in the words of Rhett Butler "Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn" - but I don't like people bad-mouthing my friends...

It's a pretty big moral dilemma caused by certain people's greed and wish to make money at the expense of everyone else -ie at home -where manufacturing has been abandonned for cheap profits to the detriment of all -and abroad where the weak and the poor are used as cheap labour to increase the profits of those few money-crazed so-called businessmen.

Much the same throughout the land.

There's no support for the law to be changed.

There are no votes to be won, if any political party suggested recreational drugs should be decriminalised.

It won't be happening.

Fact.

No debate.


Most peoples attitude about drugs, in my view is blinkered and based on fear and misinformation by papers like the Sun! Who today by the way have been disgraced by the fact they published lies and slander about the football fans who were killed in the Hillsborough Disaster.


This indicates this newspaper will publish lies and inaccuracy in order to sway peoples opinions and back the Police, as they did in this case.

Most people are not bothered about forensic evidence that many people who it is claimed, by papers like the Sun, were killed by specific drugs, when they weren't - but killed by alcohol and a cocktail of drugs etc etc.

There is a debate and fact is making drugs illegal causes more damage/ harm in the long run.
