Yet you drive your SUV everywhere, use up 5 rolls of toilet paper a week, live the microwave life, and hate on others that don't suffer a 9-5 existence like you. I'll be damned.

I personally wouldn't move to CO just for the cannabis. You can stay on the california coast to get a free gram daily without suffering from extremities in weather, provided you have your prop 215 recommendation.
It won't be too long before it is completely legal there.

Sounds like something I would hear coming out of the mouth of Mao.

Anyway, if you were sweeping the streets of the filth and degenerates who didn't have formal jobs or wandered from place to place, you'd have jailed Jesus.

Now I am not saying that any of these men and women on the streets are Jesus, but He did hang out with these types of people while He was alive.

He could have been cell mates with Siddhartha Gautama, Mahavira, and St. Francis of Assisi among others.

We need to put our faith in our leader and the state not vagabonds.

A large percentage of homeless are veterans, most of whom served in foreign wars. Instead of taking care of our vets you want to ignore them, or worse, throw them in jail.

Veterans affairs is a real shame in the US I agree they should get some kind of subsidized housing at the very least after they get out. Also I said work programs should be mandatory if they get in the work program they can get a small subsidized apartment. Chronic offenders who refuse to work though should be jailed.

I'm a veteran myself and I have seen it too much...

Veterans have resources, many just don't know or are too proud to ask for help:

Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs

Denver - Community Resource and Referral Centers (CRRCs)
