Decidedly Un-Wholesome! and Wholly Inappropriate!

The bottom line is NO ONE HAS ANY RIGHTS AT ALL as long as cops think pot smoking may be involved.

I mean, let's cut to the chase. That's what all these roadside cavity searches in Texas are about. "Got a bag of weeeeeed in there, dontcha"

It's the drug war, and it's been turned into a blank check for Law Enforcement to do whatever the fuck they want, whenever they want.

The woman in the Family Court who was assaulted and the Family Court judge didn't give a shit? She "needed" a "drug search". No reason, she just did. Gotta CHECK FER DRUGZ!

The fundamental conceit of the drug war is that the government owns your body and can tell you what you can or can't do with it. So of course they can probe every inch of it to check for prohibited psycho-alterants.

To paraphrase the Immortal Dr. Seuss:

"Start a new meta thread. Treat it unkind.
Feed it stale outrage, flamebait and wine
Start a week's worth! A month!
All the old, worn out flack
Then perhaps old missed meta,
and its friends
will come back!"

The difference being, before meta when ...er, certain people engaged in meta-like behavior in GD

(this thread being an excellent example in action, speaking of meta meta-ing) there wasn't a name for it and it wasn't easily identified.

Admin, in what I have to imagine was either a beautiful accident or an absolutely brilliant piece of 13 dimensional chess, collected all the meta-type crap in one place, allowed it to ferment and fester for a while, and then swiftly and cleanly (to paraphrase will pitt) "cinched that bag off and tossed it out to sea".

So now when the exact same games are attempted in GD- you know, let's wham-wham-wham complain about the members of DU on DU to DU on the topic of DU .... there's precedence for everyone else to go "cough. meta. been there, done that, please give it a rest already".

Clearly, though, some people still dearly miss that place. -sniff!-
