I’ll add more to this update if I remember.
 I REMBERED
Still reeling from car break in. Not okay with it. Fucking crackheads.
I love how this arc of the comic is lasting longer than the actual ice-storm did.
Also: Crackheads are shitbirds. That is all.
Hadn’t heard about your car, I’m sorry to hear that…
people are assholes.
Went back and re-read yesterday’s news, since I either forgot to read it or failed reading comprehension. Sorry about your car and the loss of your stuff, that sucks. And yeah, crackheads are shitheels. (People still smoke crack? I thought it was all about meth these days.)
Can’t speak to crack; with the crackdowns (ha!) on meth and meth precursors around here, heroin is making a comeback. This is “winning”?
I increasingly agree with the thought we should just legalize all of it. There’ll be a lot of fall-out, but the species will be stronger for it later.
It’s not like we have a budget crisis that could be helped by spending less on pointless drug crackdowns and by taxing the shit out of formerly-illegal substances. Oh wait. (Ever notice that the problem drugs rotate through cocaine, amphetamines, and opiates, but most of the drug crackdowns in the news are marijuana busts?)
Drugs are by and large a zero-sum game. There is a percentage of the population (the members of that percentage change, the percentage itself mostly doesn’t) who are going to use whatever narcotics are easy to come by at that time. I don’t actually see legalization happening for anything except maybe marijuana (and I’m not holding my breath for that one), but I do think we should be more intelligent about what we work hard to ban. Given the choice between cracking down on crack (made from plants in South America), heroin (made from plants in Afghanistan and SE Asia), or meth (often made from pseudoephedrine that was made in the US), I’d put the least enforcement on the meth; all of them are potentially dangerous to their users, but two of them mostly benefit foreign crime syndicates while the third supports US jobs.
The heroin resurgence, I thought, was due to the clampdown on Oxycontin. The DEA has clamped down on doctors “overprescribing.” This has cut down on Oxycontin abuse but has pushed addicts off of Oxy and onto heroin, as well as making doctors afraid to prescribe proper pain management for fear of being penalized for “overprescribing.”
Two positive aspects to full-on legalization: (1) the stuff can be controlled for purity and dosage, which will lead to fewer deaths from accidental overdoses and contaminated product; (2) people will not be engaging in what economists call “substitution of inferior goods”, i.e. doing more dangerous drugs because they can’t get their hands on less-dangerous ones.
Third benefit: No more drug gangs shooting up each other and the landscape and corrupting the cops.
Fourth benefit: Eliminating an excuse courts use to to hand over innocent peoples’ property to the cops via “civil asset forfeiture”.
Surprised that good neighbor Ton did not get welcomed with the business end of a Mosin.
It’s sad how common car break-ins are these days. A buddy of mine living in Ohio informed me that the number one crime in the area is a car break-in. The saddest part is they’re not stealing your $400 stereo. They’re stealing your $20 car iPhone charger or anything else they can sell for $5-10. Yet what we need in this country is more tax breaks for the rich, a bigger army and less drug treatment programs.
The biggest thing about it that bothers me is that they sneaked into a heavily fenced and gated backyard to do so. The side gate was unlocked – however, strolling into someone’d backyard to dig through their ccar, here in Texas, is a stunt that carries a possible immediate death sentence.
An asshole is an asshole, but a customer, with money, buying his weekly 1000 rounds of .45 acp is still a welcome customer.
yep… break a $150 window to get to a $5 phone charger… crackheads.
Heh. =only= $150?
Many moons ago, the driver-side window of my Probe got shot out by a couple of shitheaded scofflaws running around with a fucking air rifle.
In JANUARY. With the highs in single digits and the lows in double-negative territory.
And that’s not even the most fucked-up part.
I called around to find a replacement pane (driver-side door window) and every place I called quoted me in excess of $1200 (yes TWELVE HUNDRED DOLLARS) for an OEM replacement. (Did I mention this was for a Ford Probe? They weren’t fuckin’ kidding…)
After collecting my jaw from the hole in the floor (and basement slab underneath) that it created, I immediately began calling around to auto-salvage establishments for a junkyard part (you know, junkyards? places where you used to be able to go get parts that were still serviceable and not pay the shiny-new premium? ah, those were the days…). Found one in less than an hour for $100.
Never did get to kick those fucking pissant vandals in the nuts with a pair of Red Wings, though…
My car was once broken into. Not sure if they pried the window open or if I left it unlocked (My particular make of car is super easy to get into with no physical damage).
What did they get on that freezing night?
A nice, warm, Northface jacket… or so they thought!
What made me feel warm and fuzzy inside is that the crackhead car prowler walked away thinking he got a nice, warm jacket, only to realize 5 minutes later that he only had the shell, and no warm liner.
Gotta love karma.
I was at a goth club once in a semi-sketchy area (it had banks but also the hourly ‘motel’), and some crack-head smashed my window and took my friend’s wallet, my cell charger, her phone (so they wouldn’t have worked together), and the change. When he realized her wallet had no money he came back and someone saw him in the process of stealing my stereo so the cops caught him and paged me at the club. It was real fun driving home in NY in January with a broken window. It is very distressing to have your ‘sanctuary’ violated. Thank god for good insurance.
RESIST THE TYRANNY OF PANTS!
Sorry to hear of your asshole ‘neighbors’ breaking into your stuff. Happened to me too.
Then, one night I slept in the car, and some asshole using a slim jim got in.
I put my arm around his neck, and whispered “What are you doing in my car?”
He quite literally crapped himself, greasy long hair and leather jacket and all.
Took me hours to clean the shit out of the seat cover.
Kilts are good. But they’d need to learn a whole new bad fake accent…
you sir are awesome !!! LOL
Meanwhile a friend and I parked his soft-top jeep in the middle of the summer in downtown Providence, Rhode Island and went in to a concert. Emerging, my friend discovered he couldn’t find his keys. Luckily we found them. In the ignition of his jeep, which had gone completely unmolested.
Hah… I’ve done that but probably slightly worse. KLR-650, beautiful paint job, matching givi lockable luggage… and I’ve left keys in the ignition twice when I went into the store.
It’s pretty obvious when keys are dangling from a motorcycle.
Crackheads probably think it’s a plant vehicle. Could leave it like that for weeks I bet. Lol.
I’ve had my cars stolen from, more than once. It sux. >:( May Karma bite the crackheads where it will do the most good.
Loaded rattraps for the unsuspecting criminals… Just a thought.
I once had someone steal the back triangle window out of my ’85 Ford Escort. Seriously. The window. Two cuts to the rubber, popped out the window, was gone. Gar.
