LET'S STOP ARRESTING PEOPLE FOR USING HARD DRUGS AND TREAT THEM INSTEAD

Image
I hate to agree with the Green Party, but I 100% think we should stop arresting people for possession of hard drugs. We should instead put the money we spend on the war on drugs to better use in treating addictions and the underlying mental illnesses that vastly increase the chance of drug addiction. This is a very much more coherent way of dealing with the problem.
It actually has had a positive effect in other locations other than Canada - so it is to say, it would more than likely work here as well. We need to help people not punish them for having addictions. As well we need to try an invest in the review of how treatment works as the repeat offenders outnumber the ones who stay off drugs.
The introduction of safe ingestion sites will also save lives and have in places where they have been introduced.
I rather wish that this would be looked at in a meaningful manner by other political parties who actually have a chance at winning the election.

~When I was a kid I thought Barracuda was about the car - I was oh so wrong.
~A friend once turned the station on a road trip when Stairway to Heaven came on and I said "that was a good song". He replied "It's too long, no one likes it". There seem to be a lot of no ones out there.

PHONE MADE ME SAY WTF TWICE TODAY

Image
So I noticed my phone was saying "emergency calls only". I had tried to phone someone and it made a sound and popped up "not a registered device". So I'm like WTF? I paid my bill and it's a nice shinny new phone less than a month old.
Well I could not text either but being I was on the PC I fired up Sasktel web page and hit chat. Well gave them my info then proved who I was to them and they told me to power cycle it or put it in airplane mode for 10 seconds then back to normal mode.
So I hit the power and let it power down then powered it back up. It connected to the network and all was fine. I thanked the person for helping and was on my way.
Later at coffee I mentioned this and my one friend tells me he had the same thing happen. The other 2 did not have it happen. We all live in the same aria and are served by the same tower and where all home at this time. So I go no idea.
I texted a few others - some out of town - and several of them had the same thing hap…

CANCLED TRIP, A LETTER AND STREAMING SERVICES

Image
So the trip I wanted to take to Saskatoon is not going to happen. I am just not well right now and I don't think it's going to change before we went. I don't want to end up running to the bathroom every 45 minutes when I'm supposed to be having fun.
Also my knees are acting up again. It goes in cycles, for months they will be fine then for months they will hurt like crazy when I walk. So that alone is not going to be fun if I'm trying to walk in a mall or in a park.
I went nuts and spent the $60 I had saved for the trip because I figured "I deserve fun". Then I regretted doing it. Good thing is a nice person just donated $60 so it's all good in the end. Life seems to work out.
I have a letter to send out on the 28th before going to coffee and I've already printed it off, signed it and stuffed it in the envelope. Speaking of the envelope, the first one got mutalated in the printer. I'm glad it did not get stuck - I've got literally no idea on …
