Or maybe we should just classify farmers as terrorists.
Yeah, we should never challenge things that are wrong out of fear that it might not go away completely.
so are the people trying to ban guns against guns or do they want guns sold on every street corner?
We got a thinker over here. I like thinkers.
They want to make sure guns only go to the people that truly deserve them, criminals who wont pay attention to the law anyway.
Addiction/Drug use shouldn't be criminalized, it should be treated as a medical issue.
The universe punishing California for being such a piece of shit state. Disneyland....you’re an exception.
I can't see you through all that straw you've got set up there
Yes please. You can buy great quality full-size watermelons for 1 euro. Meanwhile in the supermarket they sell watermellon slices for 1.60
I need a war on BJs.
I love farmer’s markets. That is all.
I love farmers markets. I hate every douche canoe that thinks that because its outside it's ok to bring thier dog.
Or terrorists as farmers
Pretty sure there was tons of terrorists and bombings before the war on terrorists. IRA, red brigade, Japanese red army, PLA and force 17.
Or terrmers as farmorists
This isn't South America
There was also drugs before the War on Drugs so what's your point?
The war on drugs was explicitly and purposefully a way to target social and political opponents and the war on "terror" is totally absurd.
Now you're thinking like a drone pilot!
People will just start making farmers markets in their bathtubs!
Heh, douche canoe...
It's one thing to claim the war on drugs hasn't worked but there is no evidence that it caused an INCREASE in drug use.
First war to win.
Or a war on happiness and wellbeing...
War on peace
A war on peace?
Source on "to target social and political opponents"?
The war on terror is a massive bussiness and a blsnk check to clamp down and weaken civil right strengthening top rung of power.
Most farmers markets have very little local produce and even less farmers.
That sounds great! ...And definitely not how it works here in America.
I'd say it probably did, made a lot peoples life shitty which they tried to solve with more drugs. I don't have numbers though so dunno
I'm sorry to say that the current GOP administration's big war is a trade war. They forgot the "on," so it's actually killing trade.
That's true. Because they won't accept Euro in America. *ba dum tss*
That describes every war
Since we know from Portugal that it created MORE drug users, then yes there is. It is harmful in every way. Just mindless revenge porn
1/2 Thing is people only agree with this (banning something causes an increase) logic when it's something they're not really against.
Just like the war on wildfires has led to private contractors keeping wildfires alive all summer.
The farmers market where I live in the states is more for mom & pop shops to promote themselves and they like to up-charge during them. :<
2/2 No one would ever argue a lift on the pedophilia "ban" would be a good thing, which is contradictory to their (ban increases) logic.
And lobbing courgettes/zucchinis into crowds
Even accepting that it's as simple as that, Portugal didn't start doing NOTHING, they used DIFFERENT anti-drug policies. (1/2)
2/2 Saying the war on drugs INCREASED drug use would mean that there would be less drug use if you did NOTHING, not if you switched policies
Being a pedophile isn't illegal though, raping people is illegal. But I get your point
They very very much started doing nothing. No legal framework for drugs, just stopped criminalizing it. That is doing nothing 1/2
You're right, bad wording on my part.
And it got WAY WAY better results than any countries version of banning drugs. And ESPECIALLY the war on drugs 1.5/2
What you said is like if you said "Tylenol increases pain, because this other guy used Vicodin and it took away more pain."
War on love...
The war on drugs created more criminals, more drug users and more crime. It also cost a fortune. It was a complete failure 2/2
Pedophilia is a categorised mental disorder, bad example.
I mean, they do have a lot of fertilizer. That's bomb materials right there.
Also you're wrong, drug usage went way up in Portugal. Certain bad effects of drug use went down, but I wasn't disputing that anyway.
War on money, would be nice with a bit more money. I really want to buy a OLED this year.
The first few minutes of Shortbus might be educational for you. If your dick is desirable, we will love it in our mouths. If not then..
Focusing on treatment of drug use is not doing nothing.
Power, domination, wrath, and oil.
For the drug laws, they did nothing. Nothing beats criminalizing. And nothing is a retarded way to do it. What does that make us?
Isn't the argument that drug use should be treated as a purely medical problem, i.e. like how we treat mental disorders?
Let us take that one too. 100% failure rate on "be harsh on drugs" type policies means it is that bloody simple.
We both know if you have more than two plants you have too many to know what to do with. lol
Nope. That article doesn't claim that drug use went down, just the bad side effects of drug use.
I hope to one day be as hot as this dude.... Get it... Hot.... He uses fire.... I'll let myself out
there is one person to point out the error can I get a second?
They did that in Oregon. There was a whole armed standoff over it. 2 protesters were killed. It didn't garner as much attention as youd hope
Funny but actually gun sales go up right before presidential elections and down after NRA-friendly guy won.
It's self-evident. The Netherlands have had less pot smokers than the US for many decades. Why? Because coffee shops don't sell to minors.
America sure as fuck hasn't focused on treatment. The school-to-prison pipeline, however...
I think that is one of the few exceptions
*Early drought middle east
Leave the recreational drug trade to the black market (which you're essentially doing by outlawing drugs) & high school kids will have no...
There's an important perspective in what you argue, but I think it's a bit too reductive: they didn't fail by virtue of being drug policies.
Again, there is no reason to think it created MORE drug users. That is the only claim I'm making.
I got a cigah cigah, from Cuba Cuba. It's just for the look I just bite it, I don't light it.
It may have created more crime. It may have not stopped any drug users. but it didn't CREATE drug users. If it did, show the evidence.
I didn't say they did.
trouble buying drugs. You can only enforce age limits by legalizing & regulating the sale. People are less likely to start as adults.
That would be prohibited.
do you imagine passing those courgettes through custom?
War on cheap retro games
The War on Poverty LBJ declared isn't going so hot either.
Fair enough, it seems I've misread you. A sadly common error during morning coffee for me.
They do accept euro's in the Netherlands though, and farmers markets here are cheaper than the supermarkets too.
Depends where you live and what constitutes a 'farmers market'. $10 for a bar of soap? Get fucked. $20 for 3kg of homekill pork? SIGN ME UP.
Mister mister mister, can you buy me some weed? Is not exactly uncommon though.
Sometimes it can't be helped, depending on where the market it. Usually it's the governing body charging $X to 'set up your shop' fees.
Naw, we would actually win that one is the problem.
the drug war did not bring in more drugs. it just increased drug related crime and had little effect on the amount of drugs coming in.
also its hard to say what effect each of these things had because it was not citibus paribus and we dont know how the number of
The war on drugs didn't really create more drugs, it just did nothing to stop them while also heavily prosecuting tons of black ppl.
Not really, by their logic it should still be an increase with the ban. As that somehow adds to it.
drugs/terrorists would have changed had we not done these things. with the drugs i think its evident that the methods used had very
little/the opposite effect but the war on terror its harder to say what part were and were not effective because the reasons
behind terrorism are complicated and not very well known. (tho some were quite obviously terrible e.g the way the US handled Iraq as a
its not 100% failure rate tho.
I am not talking failure rate, I am talking the policy. The extra crap since 9/11? It does nothing extra. It is 100% failure.
It created more potent drugs. When smuggling become a problem you want to fit more in less space.
Less up arrow thingies than "war on blow jobs" oh shet ppl
wrong. drug policy's are never a simple as fail or success. aggressive drug policy's tend to make drugs moire expensive but increase
drug related crime (on average) as well as over populating prisons ect..
When it fails to outperform "doing nothing" 100% of the time on any metric , then it is a 100% failure. A rare simple thing
It's not really a war on drugs or terrorist, it's very VERY highly paid business with some explosions to cover it up.
so they have to balance what they think is best (in my opinion its not going to aggressive with drug policy but i dont pretend its a
easy right or wrong answer
I'd say you roasted them but they'd probably eat themselves and then blame whites for cannibalism.
And assault tractors.
Is... is it not? I’ve never seen a dog at one before, so I have literally no idea.
It's Marijuana sir, I swear, I don't even know what this "Basil" thing is...
Homekill Pork sounds like an awesome band name
Sadly in UK the "farmers" sell produce from tesco... There's no more trust left.
Zimbabwe tried that.
Why? Looking to spend $3 for a tomato?...
We have 2 in my town. The farmers markets are already winning.
What the US & Israel specialize in.
On another note, if we would remove the stigma from pedophiles(which kind of is like a ban) we could help them to not act on their urges
Which would lower the number of rapes
1/2 Depends on what you mean, I think it's a pretty sensitive subject. The punishments for acting on it should always be among the highest.
Everybody start shoveling fruits and veggies up your poop chutes, the man is coming!
War on Paid holidays
Same. Went to a local one and it was equal $ to supermarkets. Either quality was better or they're banking on the "farmers market" trend
Have you seen the prices at urban farmers' markets? They're terrorizing my wallet!
War on peas
He wrote Leo's Toy Store
In the US it's the opposite. Urban farmers' markets are more pricey than grocers. But the produce is fresh, locally grown, & mostly organic.
And the war on christmas has brought more christmas.
2/2 which in turn makes it hard to remove the stigma.
So, what are we fighting in this war? Drug use, or the negative effects of drug use?
Seeing as it's not being done by one person there is probably not one answer. But generally speaking it seems to be both.
No, but there is plenty of evidence on how the wod didn't decrease drug use, promoted a shift to harder drugs, and causes a higher mortality
/2 rate in drug users and costs a fortune. All the while liberal drug policies caused a decline in both hard drug and overall drug abuse.
You are a delight, thank you for this contribution!
It’s bad that farmers are making money?
“Farmer markets”. The one in my town is the same produce as the store but costs 15% more and has flies.
Sombody is projecting
And that is also what happened with the War on Poverty.
The punishment shouldn't be changed of course, but someone who never did something illegal shouldn't be lynched for something he can't contr
A completly different issue, not even sure why I talk about it
The war on hipster trash
The war on terror hasn't increased the amount of terrorists though, neither has the war on drugs, not saying they have been successful
Either but the premise of the joke is wrong
Difficult to catch orally unless skin is broken or has sores. Not impossible, just more difficult than via intercourse.
A war on lowering rent
It hasn't? Destroying livelihoods of people and destabilizing regions probably has brought more than a few people to the extremists.
Well my evidence would be that when we don't get involved they still preach death to everyone else, how many foreign wars with Islamic
Nations has China gotten involved in? Hasn't stopped Islamic terrorism there, they kill other Muslims at a higher rate than they kill us
War on freeing Hat...He killed those babies in self defense!
Yeah, It may not have increased use, But it's only achievement has been making the drug more potent and more dangerous, No decrease in use.
War on Whorehouses?
Oh sure, in theory. But in reality people are already calling on market bans and I only blew up one market so far.
War on fair wages
There is one weekly near work, too expensive, but the food trucks, oh the food trucks...
Rules vary by location. Not sure why OP things it's a huge deal though.
Maybe if they complain enough about the tariffs, Trump will label them as such
Yeah I get where you're coming from and I agree, sexual attraction is something you can't really control. What you do with it is different.
This lady at mine makes home made cream cheese spread. It is so good. It has all the kinds of peppers in it. I could use more.
My dad is an idiot am planted 4 zucchini and 4 yellow squash plants. He’s pawning them off to me and now I’m pawning them off to my friends.
Y'all GMO hating, all organic types already do.
No! We're too busy with the war on Christmas! Haven't you heard?
Can we have a war on Taiwanese night markets
and fruit as drugs
they really are great, earn more money being on vacation then working atm ^^
I love that people bring their well behaved dogs.. most that I go to are very pet friendly as long as they’re on leashes
I'm sure all those unemployed / underemployed college grads would love a war on good paying jobs.
War, what is it good for. Fake Points if you know what that line is from.
The wars on drugs lowers drug supply and drives up the price making drugs extremely profitable.
Or maybe war on sustainable energy and less fuckwitts?
They aren't already? I mean have you ever been behind a tractor on a public road?
Promote fear to legitimize tax dollars for your crony buddies companies and products.
But the war on terror smashed what stability there was in the middle east, spawning multiple insurgent groups trying to fill the power void.
So I’m not alone in remembering this movie. Cool
Well, no. But I am willing to help Bob put some money in his pocket so he can buy services from Jim. Fuck walmart.
It also has employees trying to cut a living, but fuck the small guy right? Be better for him to go work at the store for minimum wage.
At the ones I have been to, most of the vendors aren't farmers and just resell at a marked up price from the same wholesalers as the stores.
I mean... some are trying to say veterans are potential terrorists... we feel so happy about that..
I wonder what the death toll among innocents would be.
Or just nuke Mexico and the middle east into oblivion. Problem solved
Thanks, they are all contained in two weeks interestingly, they should have a common source.
1/2 The source is actually Dan Baum's interview with him, as sourced above via Harper's. It's worth noting that this specific quote was
2/3 contested by Ehrlichman's children who said it didn't fit with how they saw their father. However, the strategy Ehrlichman describes
3/3 was already a long standing criticism of the war, so it's not as though the concept comes out of left field.
Unfortunately.... the trade war isn't bringing in more trade
Curse you, lol.
Well, you could make relish.. lol
How disappointing :-(
You mean a bathtub filled with vegetables or an actual tiny little farmers market built in it? Either way I'm game.
I’m pretty dumb and thought you were talking about the wholesale club.
It's bad that they're lying. If i want tesco products, i'll go to tesco. I don't see why i should pay double for lies.
