from Onward's post and tag line:
It's ain't about right & wrong. It's about politics and the dollars in my paycheck.
"With great power, there must also come great responsibility." - Stan Lee
"All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
Somewhat of an incongruency don't you think?
Yup, you're right. Life is a bunch of dichotomies.
At least, I admit to it rather than some of these other jokers that sing the self-righteous tune. If something I do is part of my legal job description and it so happens to propel my career, so be it. Would I do something illegal to move my career forward? No. Would having my career move forward drive me to prosecute harder while staying within the confines of the law? Of course! It happens every freaking day. Anyone who doesn't believe that is a foolish idealist.
So, going back to the topic - don't freakin smoke weed if you're gonna carry or think you may shoot somebody in self-defense. Pretty dang easy, eh?
