Yuck, most lawyers just want to get their client off whether they are guilty or not. (Criminal lawyers) Would be nice if they were for truth and justice.

Back in the 80's most of the Democrats hated Reagan too, so no difference IMO.
I believe we should be able to keep our RIGHT to have a gun. No I do not have one.
And I sure would like the terrorists that want to force all the world to Islam or death to be gone. Not all in the Middle East are like that.
I DO believe in Israel's right to exist. For sure. And will back them to the hilt.
Exactly! I think that's more accurate to clarify not all republicans or conservatives think that way And i do agree- many liberals are turned off to republicans as a result of Bush. I know even though i'm mostly a republican, i do not agree with many things he has done...but some i do. It just depends on the individual issue for me Btw, i like Schwartzeneger too As far as guns go- i'm all for them if everyone meets the requirements (i do think some new ones need to be made in liu of the VT Massacare though) i think you must be of legal age, pass all requirements and proper training. We have 8 guns at our house (shotguns, handguns and pistols) 9 if you count Colin's service weapon. We are well trained on them (i used to be petrified of them until i learned how to use one- now i can shoot better than most men i know). All of our guns are kept in a secure gun safe and the door to that gun closet stays locked as well just in case (i have lots of nieces and nephews) we do have one shot gun that we keep in the closet in our bedroom - if anyone breaks in- they're gonna be sorry at our house that being said though- i don't tote a gun around everywhere with me nor do i feel that everyone needs one- i think that it's ok for properly trained/approved individuals who practice safe gun use to have them in their homes (in a safe location away from children) should they need to protect themselves from an intruder) That's pretty much my stance on it. Also- we plan to teach our future children that guns are not toys and make sure that they learn at a young age that they can hurt people etc... and keep them locked up. I also do not believe that children should have toy guns to play with because i think it could be easy for a child to confuse a toy with a real weapon and cause something tragic. (sorry for the side track!!)
Marijuana is decriminalized in: Alaska, Colorado, Nebraska, Ohio, New York, and Maine.. these are all states that consider it, in my opinion, to be insignificant as they only issue petty offenses or .. civil offenses and minor fines, etc for possession only. Alaska offers no penalty and is completely legal to possess and use marijuana in your own home.
Vermont is one of the stricter states.. with less than 2 oz, six months in jail and a $600 fine. It's a misdemeanor. Second offense is felony, 2 years in jail, $2000 fine. It's not even legal for medical marijuana there.
Medical states: Washington, Oregon, California, Nevada, Montana, Colorado, New Mexico, Vermont, Maine, Rhode Island, Maryland, Hawaii..
But anyway, I saw that post and got interested in where the laws stood these days. Sorry for the overzealous post, lol.
