Dope Fiends Shoot Dope. Now what?

The Courier reports today that the enormous scam known as The Vancouver Agreement has just spent $2Million renovating slum rooms above the Insite disaster for a program being called Onsite.

It is here that hundreds of helping social workers and other misguided fools will get addicts "involved in a withdrawal discussion."

Are you listening to the language?

Do you know how many addicts I could house and clean up on$2Million PLUS $350,00 operating costs per year?

This is how far off the mark these well-meaning, meddling destructive people are:

You don't talk to addicts about "withdrawal." You talk about football and music and children and the lawn and study and the Canucks and bridge and love and you LIVE these things during the 24-48 hours that so-called "withdrawal" takes place.

The drug withdrawal is the tiniest issue in the challenge of moving on. It's everything else.

How can you get to the everything else, when you haven't even thought about it yet?

I'm going to have to stop writing about this subject soon because what the Good People" are doing is making me crazy.

Wasting The Court's Time

Penny Paul, Brian Butters. Penny Paul, Brian Butters.

Pardon my outright discrimination, but the very names tell of the frivolousness and lack of substance in the case. So sue me.

"The case" is the one in which the women at a private golf club feel slighted that they can't go into the men's bar. They then wasted the public's time and money by seeking redress (so to speak) at the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal and ultimately the Supreme Court of Canada. These are privileged rich people taking up the court's (read, yours and mine) time and tax dollars with selfish irrelevant idiocy.

The Supreme Court threw them out the door. NEXT!

Bravo. Bravissimo.

The Supreme Court said it didn't have the time or patience for this. And the Court was right.

Now, in complete contrast to this disgusting immaturity, read the story and the not one, but two, editorials in the NY Times on a Supreme Court decision yesterday in Washington that is about race and schooling and segregation and federal law vs. local law. Now, that's a serious and worthy issue.
