Three Things Thursday

This is another one of those 'staples' other bloggers do. Unsure if it will stick but let's give it a whirl shall we??

1) I've never smoked pot. Ever. Throughout high school, peeps tried getting me to smoke, but I think DARE scared/scarred me and I thought if I smoked pot I'd be selling the junk in my trunk for $5 just 2 weeks later in some back alley. I don't know really, maybe it was more just moral superiority. I was around it, but in all honesty never had the desire to try it. Now, I'm nearly 27 and I still haven't tried it. I'm also no longer morally opposed whatsoever and am not in danger of becoming a 'pothead' or reliant drug user (painkillers will be exempted from this discussion). The powers that be (peeps in my life) are thinking it'd be fun to see what I'd be like 'high'. And 4/20 is rapidly approaching. So...I just may light up a joint. Or...I may stay prude and clean. Gotta think about this one a bit as there are many work-related factors to consider...

2) If you are supporting President Obama in 2012 and have purchased a bumper sticker/donated to his campaign I want to know why/how. My #giveashit factor remains quite low when it comes to politics these days, but I honestly cannot believe someone would willingly/be proud of their support for him. I. Just. Don't. Get. It. If you are one of the many bozos voting for the lesser-of-two-evils, I can somewhate sympathize (not really actually), but if you are out campaigning, fundraising, sporting Obama gear - explain yourself here...I'm truly interested.

3) The oddest factor to me in the whole Trayvon Martin debacle is the fact that 'Neighborhood Watch' even exists. We already live in a surveillance state that is so utterly intrusive it's amazing people would feel the need to exacerbate it. The Martin case is a tragedy and Zimmerman deserves to rot in prison, but how was he able to be 'on-guard' in the first place. Quite obviously, his presence did not make the neighborhood safer. If I were a rich man, and opted to live in a gated community, they'd have their own security and I wouldn't necessarily be opposed to it. But to have volunteer strangers harassing judging our every move seems ridiculous and offensive. With our ever-eroding civil liberties, it irks me that more people aren't outraged by the mere presence of these 'do-gooders.' Get a life.

To answer all 3 paragraphs I can only say, Trayvon probably smoked pot but not with Obama. Zimmerman certainly needed to smoke a bowl to slow down his trigger finger but as you know if you're thirsting to kill it's not too hard to find a victim.
You are a dope virgin at 27, they should make a movie about you. Even Tom Cruise ( I think, I hope, I am making this up) has toked up.
Now I don't believe it will make you faster, stronger or smarter or handsomer, but maybe you'll believe it does and then of course it will.
But isn't your virginity important to you? Maybe this denial is what makes you so unusual and appealing and if you succomb you'll just be another blubbering slob out there in tv land.

How most people overlook the damage even smoking pot does to their lungs...even secondhand. They kid themselves that it is not the same damage as cigarette smoke. As for Obama, maybe this second time around he will get more right than wrong. I mean experience is the best teacher. Let's hope he has learned something that will help our country and he will have more courage to just not appease. zimmerman is a loose cannon. I am hoping he gets what he deserves. No one anywhere should have that kind of freedom to shoot first and ask questions later.

Zimmerman should pay a steep price for what he did. There should be no room for vigilantes in any neighborhood that are self-appointed hitmen.

Liked this blog style a lot. Gives us good topics to think about. Sort of like the pundits on TV. Zimmerman will probably made an example. He will most likely get a stiff sentence, just to avoid big protests. He deserves it. Don't smoke dope like the rest of the world.Get your highs in the water.
