"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Crack pipe distribution programs have been successful in Canada, said Laura Thomas, a member of the HIV Prevention Planning Council (HPPC), the group that recently suggested San Francisco consider a similar program.


Arms control programs have been successful in Nazi Germany, too.  Does it occur to these big liberals what is successful in one country isn't necessarily going to work here; that the populations are different?  Has it ever occurred to these big liberals that people are responsible for their own actions?  Since when does the government become the furnisher of everything to those too stoned, drunk, uncaring, or lazy to take care of themselves.  As far as I'm concerned let them die.
