Ah yes. The Catholic Church. The political arm of a religion founded by a guy who was more or less anti-political. The mention of that Church always brings a smile (ironic) to my face.
My understanding of the message of Jesus is "listen to God". The message of the Church? "Listen to us - we have men (and a few women) listening to God all the time so you don't have to." Too funny.

"Cops and prosecutors are becoming the enemy of The People."
Lots of similar comments. I blame socialism. And Prohibition is an essential element of socialism. And you ought to look up "Milton Friedman prohibition socialism" . Prohibition is socialist because it is a form of price support for criminals.As if we didn't have enough criminals without it.
And funny thing: the Progressives have duped the right into supporting this particular form of socialism. Clever boys.

@realitycheck "positive for THC in the blood"
Half life in the blood is 20 hours. Because of release from fats (as noted by others as well) the half life in the body is 10 - 14 days. Thirty days = 1/8 level in the body.

First, government is force. It is sheer lunacy to expect government to work like a fine instrument in, say, the hands of a Leonardo. Government, ultimately, is about taking your money and throwing you into jail — or worse.

TinyCAD and FreePCB - in tandem.

I have something better than porn. A video game. And when you are done playing you have the design for a circuit board. Which might be of some use.
I can teach you how to play. But it might take a while. Depending.

Uh. Celebrity is what you make it. IIRC she had no other job after she resigned. It is not like she is riding the back of thug behavior. Unlike some other (cough, cough) people out there.
I saw Bigge Smalls at the Green Mill before his "unfortunate" demise. He was in the audience. Just back of me in fact (with two thug bodyguards at his side) as I was sitting at the bar with my date. (the First Mate and I were on the outs at the time).
BTW the Green Mill was a gangster hang out since the 20s. Some nice pictures of its former denizens on the wall behind the bar. The date wanted to go there. She liked the ambiance.

"No chance of being clean"
Weed metabolites unlike other drugs gets stored in body fat with a half life of 10 to 13 days. Depending on level of use they remain detectable in the blood for about 30 days.
The half life as far as the high goes is about 20 hours.

"Furthermore- I believe that in fact Jesus Christ was the son of God, his death and resurrection done for our benefits ...."
Such faith is not quite universal. And until the opposing view was declared a heresy and stamped out it was not even universal among Christians. But the Romans liked their Gods in human form. So when they adopted Christianity they continued the practice. Easier to sell the new religion to the believers in the old. We don't call Him Zeus anymore we call him Jesus.
And BTW if you believe the Bible Jesus was born in the spring not around the time of Saturnalia. Which leads one to the conclusion that Christianity is modified paganism. Ishtar in the spring.
Osiris was resurrected too.
But I don't mind. I once had a brilliant computer engineer boss ('67) who was SURE UFOs were from a long ways away (outer space).

There are at least 20 very good detectives on this case. Maybe 100. How do they expect to get away with it. They don't. All they need to do is to amp up the low information types. Just getting them warmed up for action this summer. Lets see. School will be out in 30 days +/- . Hmmmm. I was in Bezerkeley for marshal law - People's Park. The marshal law lasted a bit over 2 weeks. MLK riots lasted about a week.
I don't see how they make marshal law last into November. But who knows?
A fight by untrained fighters is hard to sustain for a period of months.
@Rowwdy "My experience with them, short though it was, is a bunch of pompous, stuffed shirts and a LOT really weird people."
Yes. Insecurity was the main attitude I caught.
@Rowwdy "They have the most muscle around the mouth. In groups they feel tough, get a couple alone and they piss their pants."
Mere anger is not enough to be tough. You also have to be self disciplined.
I'm sorry but I always had a bad attitude about those guys. I took the preliminary test once and then decided against it. I would never join an organization that was willing to have me as a member.
