    Could the free market fight drug use? It already does.

    The free market doesn’t fight idiotic behavior with violence. It just makes you pay the penalty for that behavior. If you use any drugs at all, there are plenty of private sector jobs that you cannot be hired for. Private insurers give private companies that work with heavy machinery major discounts for being drug free. No need for government involvement. Private healthcare, daycare, and educational companies often require drug free employees. Pretty much every employer prefers them.

    The free market won’t kidnap you and lock you in a rape camp for using drugs. It just might not hire you. You may face the choice between clean living and destitution, homelessness, and starvation.

    If you’re squandering hours a day intoxicated, you also may have a competitive disadvantage compared to those who don’t. If your competitors are using that time to better themselves or improve their skills, you’ll be left behind.

    On the reverse side, if drug use makes you more creative, or just more relaxed, or somehow helps you, then the free market might even reward you.

    The free market rewards good behavior and punishes bad behavior — without government violence or theft.

    If elected, I will sponsor legislation to end the drug war, abolish the DEA, release nonviolent drug users, sellers, and transporters from prison, and cut taxes accordingly. I will also sponsor legislation to end all federal welfare, including educational and medical welfare. Drug use punishes itself, and it does so even better without welfare softening the blow.

Helloween – I Want Out

Filed under: Listening, Viewing — Tags: , — mikewb1971 @ 2:01 AM (02:01)

From our lives’ beginning on
We are pushed in little forms
No one asks us how we like to be
In school they teach you what to think
But everyone says different things
But they’re all convinced that
They’re the ones to see

[Bridge:]
So they keep talking and they never stop
And at a certain point you give it up
So the only thing that’s left to think is this

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free

People tell me A and B
They tell me how I have to see
Things that I have seen already clear
So they push me then from side to side
They’re pushing me from black to white
They’re pushing ’til there’s nothing more to hear

[Bridge:]
But don’t push me to the maximum
Shut your mouth and take it home
‘Cause I decide the way things gonna be

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free

There’s a million ways to see the things in life
A million ways to be the fool
In the end of it, none of us is right
Sometimes we need to be alone

[Solo: Kai/Both]

No no no, leave me alone

[Chorus:]
I want out — to live my life alone
I want out — leave me be
I want out — to do things on my own
I want out — to live my life and to be free
