4/17    Just a thought.  Say we select a small percentagle of the population
        (e.g. 100000 people) with representations from all walks of life
        (scientists, engineers, doctors, chefs, plumbers, nannies, ...) except
        bad guys, transport them to a distant earth-like planet with abundant
        natural resources, and take away all man-made objects (machines,
        clothes, books, medicines, all tools, ...)  How long will it take for

11/10   What's the best way to get medical leave (how do I find
        a doctor who is willing to help you in any way)?
        \_ Do you have a good relationship with your personal physician?
           If not, do you know any physicians as friends or family friends?
           That would be a good place to start.
           \_ Crap, no I don't. Ok, is there another way?

DEA officials say the diesel electric-powered submarine was constructed in a remote jungle and captured near a tributary close to the Ecuador-Colombia border. Ecuadorian authorities seized the sub before it could make its maiden voyage. The sophisticated camouflaged vessel has a conning tower, periscope and air-conditioning system. It measured about nine-feet-high from the deck plates to the ceiling and stretched nearly a 100 feet long. The DEA says it was built for trans-oceanic drug trafficking. DEA Andean Regional Director Jay Bergman says the sub's nautical and payload capacity is a serious development. Report Abuse OFF-TOPIC -- Can't a homemade submarine this big be used as a weapon? It's probably only a matter of time since smugglers and insurgents have had a long and hardy symbiotic relationship the world over. Report Abuse You people talk like this is all a joke it only reminds me how many disturbed people their are in this society. Since I dont beleive in a God this is only a karmic effect and its not over for anyone involved and connected in some way. We've got some logistical problems in that a horde of sharks has invaded the northeastern coastline and they are directly in our path to Scotland. Last time something like that happened, we ran into a bunch of bull sharks, broke the props and had to go into dry-dock for 6 weeks. You saw what happened at Woodstock '99 when we couldn't deliver the product. Report Abuse To believe in the winnability of the drug war seems to be opposed to the core concept of capitalism, that free markets rule, so, since drug demand is a free market the desire to stamp it out, wouldn't that make you some sort of commie? Report Abuse Decriminalize (in other words, CAPITALIZE) drugs; the black-market can be eliminate overnight, and be replaced by legitimate capitalized societal distribution systems (pharmacies and state stores). Republicans are soooooooo socialist, and they don't even know it! Report Abuse Decriminalize (in other words, CAPITALIZE) drugs, and the black market can be absorbed, monitored, enforced, and made legitimate by civilized society. Republicans are soooooo Socialist, amd they don't even realize it! Report Abuse The hallucenogenic amphetamine that can easily be synthesized from the phenethylamine, Apiole, that is produced by common Parsley, is hundreds of thousands of times more potent than the hallucenogenic amphetamine, Ecstasy. Do we want to regulate and put police monitors on every produce stand? Decriminalize everything, register addicts and let them buy their drugs in the pharmacy or state store. Eliminating the black-market is the only way that America will ever stop circling the drain! what if we put a tracking device in the sub and followed it around, bust the people who are involved in buying tons of cocaine. Then we would have both money( approximately 50 million dollars),drugs( enough for sting operations for the next 10 years), and the wholesale chain. After doing this a 1/2 dozen times the wholesale drug purchasing groups may think this supplier is an informant.
