"One takes it in a brownie or cookie for an even more immediate effect" This is just wrong. It takes longer for the effect when eating pot.
Did I say 10 years is appropriate? Try reading.
So if I have a legal same sex marriage in Iowa, I should be able to cross over into Nebraska and have it recognized? I agree that CCP should be reciprocal (just as I think marriage licenses for same sex marriages should be reciprocal) but until it is, it is the individual's responsibility to follow the laws of both the state she lives in and the law of the state she crossed over into.

What an oddly selfish take on someone losing their battle with mental illness. No, Robin Williams and the author did not have a contract. Robin Williams didn't owe this author anything.
"Her honest admission and honest mistake of crossing an arbitrary line into another state landed her in jail and charged with a felony." For a site that claims to support a smaller federal government in favor of local governments making their own laws based on their own communities (state and city, both), it is odd to claim that state lines are arbitrary lines. I do think this woman is being too harshly prosecuted but it was her responsibility to follow the laws of NJ when she crossed over to NJ.

"Would it be - You have wasted your time and efforts attending to me, instead of devoting those precious resources to people who would actually appreciate and thank you for your selfless efforts?" Would you say the same thing about someone that fought cancer but ultimately lost the battle despite receiving precious resources, support, and care from doctors, friends and family?
"Even with that, last week’s events were a game changer in terms of making investing in Russia morally repugnant" and "Ignore all the negative news on Russia this week, hold your nose and invest in Russian stocks." So making money is more important than avoiding morally repugnant investments? Disgusting.
"When will it ever be understood that sexual orientation is a choice, and has nothing to do with civil rights or discrimination laws. Those laws were to protect people that have NO choice about their race, gender, age, etc." Of course, those laws also protect people based on religion and religion is absolutely a choice.

"If Genesis isn't accurate, even as metaphor, then there is no need for Jesus/a savior/God's forgiveness/reconnection with God." This just means that Joycey's desire for a savior drives her belief in the Genesis story. It says a lot about Joycey and nothing about the accuracy of the Genesis story. Her belief in the Genesis story is not intellectual or scientific; it is simply emotional.

"We might think chapter 2 of Genesis teaches that “God formed the man of dust from the ground,” and Eve from Adam—but if they were the product of evolution, than early Genesis becomes a myth, and everyone who assumed the history to be true (including Jesus and Paul) were naive." Greek and Roman mythology were once considered to be religions and not mythology too. You can believe your bible stories to be literally true but that doesn't mean it isn't really mythology. "and everyone who assumed the history to be true (including Jesus and Paul) were naive" I don't think that everyone who assumed the history to be true was naive. You are naive if you continue believing that stuff despite scientific advancements, however.
