Tony Bennett for President

“First it was Michael Jackson, then Amy Winehouse, now the magnificent Whitney Houston. I’d like every person in this room to campaign to legalize drugs. Let’s legalize drugs like they did in Amsterdam. No one’s hiding or sneaking around corners to get it. They go to a doctor to get it.”

Contrary to christian scripture, Spanking is Abuse

We wouldn’t smack another adult for misbehaving or making a mistake, hitting out at children is an extreme abuse of power and this is not okay.

2. NOT a Woman’s Physical make-up: Clearly God did not design women, as a whole and in general, with this purpose in mind, clearly it was a role that God gave men, so why are women taking it from them? Why are women going against God’s obvious intent? If it is wrong for a man to hit a woman because he is stronger, then what about a woman who is a cop?

Isn’t jealousy a sin, Mr. Daniel Mason (@masondan84)? Do you think having a mostly (or all) male police force is a good thing for this country? Read any news on the drug war lately?

And if it’s wrong for a man to hit a woman, why isn’t it also wrong for adults to hit children? I’ve always wondered how it feels to be a hypocrite — Mr. Mason, perhaps you can enlighten us? Is it like wearing a mask? Pretending you’re an actor on a stage?

Say, Mr. Mason, will we find your email address in the Ashley Madison hack?

I met my future husband while I was at this stage of my life. He helped me see where I had gone wrong… My husband and I decided that there would be no preventative measures in having children. If the Lord sees fit to bless us with children we will gladly receive it. The reasons I originally wanted to use birth control were purely selfish…

Dude, you post a lot of offensive stuff on your blog, like this “fictional” story. I feel sorry for every woman you come into contact with, especially your family members. Maybe your god can help free them.

I’ve had a few visitors at my blog from Guernsey:

From Wikipedia:  Guernsey (/ˈgɜ:nzi/, /ˈɡɜrnzi/ gurn-zee), officially the Bailiwick of Guernsey… is a possession of the British Crown in right of Guernsey in the English Channel, off the coast of Normandy… Together, the Bailiwick of Guernsey and Bailiwick of Jersey form the geographical grouping known as the Channel Islands…

Guernsey FC will have to wait to see if they can play a first-ever FA Cup tie in the Channel Islands after drawing 2-2 at Phoenix Sports…

A Guernsey politician says people in the island need to find more ‘niches’ in the market and come up with new industries. Deputy Barry Paint was speaking in the week that it was announced GDP has risen slightly, but that there has been a drop in the money made from traditional island industries such a leisure and horticulture.

The Deputy says islanders need to move on from the areas that have made them money in the past and find new ideas. And he says that the ideas, and efforts, need to come from individuals.

(2014) The Health and Social Service Department (HSSD) has denied treating a Guernsey patient with marijuana. However, it has admitted that individuals can be prescribed the drug in “compelling cases”…

A spokeswoman for the Misuse of Drugs Advisory Group said: “Under current legislation cannabis plants and resin are classified under Schedule 1 of the Misuse of Drugs (Bailiwick of Guernsey) Law 1974 as a Class B drug. “Therefore it is a criminal offence in the Bailiwick to possess, supply or import this substance.”

(3/4/2015) Guernsey unlikely to change cannabis law, says chief pharmacist

Ed Freestone was responding to a petition signed by a 1,000 people calling for the change in the Class B drug’s status. He said for the island to unilaterally act and decriminalise the drug would be difficult without the UK moving first.

Mike Jackson, of the Guernsey Drug Strategy Campaign, said the island should follow the US state of Colorado. Colorado legalised the drug in 2014 with sales worth about $700m (£455m) in the first year. Mr Jackson said: “They have got a really good system in place, they are regulating which is the important thing. “We are not looking for an outright decriminalisation.”

Mr Freestone said it was unlikely there would be any change soon as it is not part of the island’s drug and alcohol strategy.
