The war on drugs – Shawn Bentler
"The War on drugs" has taken a lot of flack from the liberal left of late. While most of them are more than happy to prosecute the hell out of anyone that smokes tobacco, the efforts to combat the hardest drugs has been met with a lot of resistance of late. A lot of people seem to feel that doing drugs is a priviledge afforded by our right to pursue happiness. While making that argument, those same liberals will tell you we need to ban guns. That’s just fubar.
Allowing that liberal mantra to take hold is the rather blase attitude the conservatives have taken toward drugs while they focus on other issues such as same sex marriage and intelligent design. This is really starting to get on my nerves. Day after day it seems there is more and more evidence that drugs are destroying the fabric of this country while the people who should be leading the charge are playing Nero with distracting issues that really mean nothing to the average person. Drug addictions don’t limit their impact to same sex marriages. Drug addictions totally undermine the entire concept that our existance has anything to do with any intelligent design whatsoever. It’s crazy what’s going on, and people worrying about intelligent design in the midst of the craziness just makes it seem that much crazier.
Shawn Bentler took a gun and killed his mother, his father, and three sisters. He was arrested on an outstanding drug warrants. Now, the logic here is quite simple. If society had taken Shawn’s drug warrants more seriously and made sure he was in prison or forced rehab, five people, including three young girls, would not be dead in Iowa.
And, there’s no telling how many more people would not be dead at this time if the problem of drugs were taken more seriously. There are two other high-profile murders going on right now, anyone want to take a bet on whether drugs were involved in either of those? I’ll be following them here I’m sure.
