More irrational national party flag waving
Rabid National party flag waver and BOP Times newspaper letter writer Mary Brook had a letter in the newspaper tonight licking the National party's boots and saying how wonderful it is that they are doing something to rid us of the evil drug "P".
I do not disagree with her that the drug "P" is evil. What I resent are cheerleaders to a bunch of thieves who take my money by force with threats of jail and fines if I resist, who SAY they want to rid us of the evil drug, but continue to do things that they KNOW DAMN WELL DO NOT WORK, because they are too GUTLESS to do the only thing that WILL - that being to legalise all drugs.
I do not suggest that tomorrow drugs should be made legal - we have been taught to be too irresponsible for that to happen. Socialised health care and interfering nanny state governments have stripped generations of Kiwis of common sense and responsibility of which a great deal would have to be restored before we could be entrusted with legal drugs.
Here is my response to Mary Brook, Tauranga National Party cheerleader
Mary Brook once again engages in the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought. No guessing who didn’t get an A pass for school C history eh!If she thinks the actions of her beloved National party-who she champions right or wrong-will make the slightest bit of difference in the availability of the drug “P” then she must have spent the last 100 years on a different planet, because the history of this one says it won’t.Any drug you so desire is available in the most secure prisons in the country - how on earth does she and her sycophantic supporters expect to stop the availability of them out in the big wide world.You are welcome to keep banging your head against a brick wall, although I guarantee the last time you bang it will hurt just as much as the first time - it’s just a shame you insist on wasting other peoples money in doing so.The real solution to minimise the harm of drugs would be too unpopular for any political party to successfully campaign on, and so we have to put up with the totally ineffectual pretence and posturing of the national Party in their efforts to convince you they are doing something about it while knowing it wont do a thing! - Its a big con job, and you are the victims. The real tragedy is that you continue to give them your permission to keep up the charade - and then complain when it doesn’t work! - sheesh!
National party keen to see "P" remains on the streets
Simon Bridges and the National Party have been beguilling the public with hollow promises and propaganda since they got into power, and in a recent column in the local newspaper, Simon Bridges - National MP tells the public how they intend to rid us of the "P" problem, but I am not taken in for one millisecond by his handsome smile, popularity seeking propaganda exercises.You see in their effort to make you believe they are doing something to eradicate the evil drug "P" from the streets, this solutions-bereft party are just promising to do more of exactly the same that has been done and failed before, because the only real solution to the problem would not be a popular one, so instead of actually fixing the problem, they want talk you into believing they are fixing it.If you were to poke yourself in the eye with a sharp stick you would find it very painful. Why then try poking yourself in the eye with a sharp stick again and again just to see if it still hurts?Some would have learnt their lesson the first time, but not the National party - oh no - they keep on poking that stick in there, just hoping that one day it won't hurt.The reason they continue to do that is because it is not their money they spend in doing it! Easy come, easy go - Poke - Ouch!Well, here is a prediction for you (and remember, I am not getting paid for my predictions like simple Simon) I predict "P" will still be available despite the additional bucket-loads of taxpayers money they intend to waste in their previously tried and failed attempts at ridding us of the "P" scourge that they themselves precipitate. It will be more expensive because it may be harder to get, and there will be more armed robberies as addicts put the lives of innocent New Zealanders at risk in their struggle to feed their addiction. A stronger, more dangerous drug made from dried mushrooms and toothpaste (or whatever) will be developed, and the major political parties will all start the process of poking themselves in the eye with sharp sticks again.It is quite obvious that these people don't want to eradicate "P" otherwise they would stop doing the things that have failed in the past - they just want to be seen to be seen to be trying, and which quite frankly is a pitiful waste of their time and my money and a danger to the lives of innocent Kiwis.I predict that the very measures that they favour to fix the problem will ensure that the problem continues to plague us, therefore making them the cause of the problem!It is time to face the harsh and realistic facts. Make no mistake, no matter what the government do, and regardless of how much education and prohibition is in place, some people will still chose to take "P." (and other drugs for that matter)To reduce the harm caused by "P" - and everybody will agree this is the most harmful and evil drug ever to hit the streets - then drug takers need to have options (which they dont have at present because they are also illegal, and hard to obtain)
Legalise all drugs, make them available from legitimate pharmacies and manufacturers.
Spend the money wasted on the ineffective and totally useless war on drugs on TRUTHFUL, FACTUAL drug education (as opposed to the sensationalism and demonisation of cannabis), and rehabilitation programmes.
Drug problems should be the concern of drug takers
Stop forcing the problems of drug takers onto innocent, non-drug takers
