Reading through the 51 replies, I couldn't help laughing at them, but I was also struck by how intolerant and bigoted they were of The Keepers opinion. I mean, for those who just want people to tolerate their habit and not look down on them for it, they sure don't practice what they preach. One even commented on how much money he makes and how much better of a person that makes him than The Keeper. (I expected him to give the length in millimeters [since he was in China] and compare it to The Keeper as well) I guess it's too much to expect that those on the left who call conservatives by names like haters, bigots, and [insert aberrant behavior here]
Personally, I am probably more lax on this particular subject than The Keeper. I prefer social scorn and disassociation to the big government solution to this problem. Of course, that presupposes a common moral framework in society which, unfortunately, doesn't exist like it used to, when alcoholics and drug abusers were ostracized from polite society and confined themselves to the seedier parts of towns. But, since we will not control ourselves, government will step in to fill the void.
So thank-you potheads for showing us your true selves. Not that we didn't know already. And thanks to The Keeper for poking a stick into the nest and stirring them up so we could see them.
