California has been talking about weather or not to legalize pot for years but for the most part California politicians have been against it. But now that California is broke they are thinking it is a good idea. Legalize pot and tax the hell out of it. This has made me wonder about what other things might not be against the law anymore...as long as you tax it. Depending on how broke and desperate California gets...will armed robbery someday be OK as long as you pay taxes on what you stole? How about burglary...no big deal as long as you pay taxes. Robbing a bank will be allowable as long as you steal a whole lot so you can be taxed big $$$$$. Ok , maybe not a bank since the government owns them all, but how about a casino. And what about all the people serving time for just pot possession... will they get a GET OUT OF JAIL FREE CARD as long as they pay the pot taxes. Bottom line is that I am not for legalized pot but I think if they are going to legalize pot, it needs to be for all the other arguments discussed for years pryor not for the sole purposes of tax dollars.
How is it possible that my little baby grandson is graduating High School a week from tomorrow? He is 18 already. In a few years it is entirely possible I could be a great grandmother. I don't want to think about that. It feels like just such a short time ago that I was the one graduating. Time just goes by so fast. When he is at the place in his life as I am now, and looks back at the fact his grandson is graduating, I hope he reflects that he has had a good life and enjoyed the journey. Happy Graduation JAS.
April was Earth Month and I have to say I really hate all this "GREEN" stuff!!! You know.... the carbon foot print, don't use any water or breath out or drive your car... that kind of stuff. But after reflecting on the subject I released I am green....a little anyways. I have planted 15 trees on my little piece of land. I water all my house plants with the old fish water when cleaning the fish tanks. I recycle all my diet Coke cans. So why do I hate all this GREEN stuff. Well I hate being told you have to do this . Hate having it crammed down my throat. Hate that GREEN is so political. Hate how TV shows think they have to be GREEN. I hate that people like Al Gore think they have the right to tell you how to live and that you need to do it GREEN but they don't and won't do it themselves. So bottom line...I hate GREEN even though I am Green!
Someone needs to explain to these fools who think sleep deprivation, a bug in a box and water boarding is torture just what real torture is. Burning people with lit cigarettes is torture. Breaking or cutting off limbs is torture. Electrical shocking is torture. So knock it off!!! And "LEAVE GEORGE BUSH ALONE."
Some women like to buy shoes. Some women like to buy clothes. Me, I like to buy handbags. I like to look at them in stores and on QVC and the QVC website. I look to see what handbags other women are carrying. Anyways, that got me to thinking...I don't like brown handbags. I don't know why I don't like then , I just don't. I am not a big fan of white handbags either but that is just because white gets dirty so fast. Lately my favorite color has been blue. Like a denim blue. Probably because I mostly just wear jeans. Anyways, I have been contemplating for several days as to why I don't like brown bags. Still don't know. Maybe brown is just boring. Come to think of it....I don't like Brown shoes either!!!!
Every time I see a car with an Obama / Biden bumper sticker I yell "It's all your fault!!" They can't hear me but that's just how I feel. I can't honestly say that I believed McCain would have been a great president but he at least wouldn't be trying to make us a Socialist country and spend, spend, spend only to be followed by tax, tax, tax. There is a reason why the United States became a super power in just a short 3 hundred years. It was because of Capitalism !! Prosperity!! The American Dream!! Nobody is sneaking across the boarders to go into Mexico for a better life. Nobody is crossing the Alantic Ocean in a rickety boat to sneak into Cuba for a better life! So do me a favor, the election is over....take thoses bumper stickers off your cars...PLEASE!!!
