Re: “UPDATE: Bill to prohibit smoking marijuana passes Senate committee

Don't these asshats realize that the vast majority of medications, regardless of how they are consumed, have at least one negative health side effect (or thirty)?

Or are they planning on outlawing antibiotics because the public will increase their resistance too? Same difference. It's an asinine argument to say smoking is bad because it can be harmful to the lungs, without pointing out that Lipitor can cause kidney damage. Should we take all those heart patients off Lipitor then? Hell no. Because doctors and patients understand that the benefits outweigh the risks. Just like with MM.

I *might* get a lot of bad things from my medicine... Doesn't mean I don't have a right to it.

Re: “'Million-dollar Thursday'

@Conservative Arkansas Sometimes you DON'T do the crime yet can't prove it(stolen checks, etc) , sometimes you just screw up a bit on your addition & subtraction, sometimes your employer doesn't pay you on time & it bounces your check, sometimes sh!t happens.

Sometimes people live from payday to payday. Sometimes people can't hold their jobs because of B.S. like what's happening in Sherwood, and has been happening there for decades.

Bouncing a check is something that happens to most people at some point in their lives, unless they're wealthy. For most of us who live near or below the poverty line, we've had something bounce. Particularly on these older cases before banks regularly offered overdraft protection...

You should be able to pay off the check, with a reasonable fine, and then move on. It shouldn't follow you for years and be thousands of times costlier than the original check amount.

Keeping these people from being able to hold jobs only hurts their chances of being able to pay off these absurdly high fines, it's a system rigged to exploit the poorest of society.

And anyone who reads this article and reacts the way you did is part of society's problem. Holier-than-thou, empathy-less asshats, that lack any ability to put themselves in anyone else's shoes, and thrive on being judgemental towards those they consider beneath themselves.

Re: “What about the Arkansas ballot issues?

Spencer, while YOU might only know 10 dollar and higher folk, the fact is that the fine people that serve you in restaurants work there for many reasons, not the least of which is "it's the job I could find".
I think your comments are insulting to servers everywhere. Don't set their sites high, my aunt fanny. Stuck up much?
