Why marriage is so out dated.

I was asked the other day why I have never got married so thought I would share it with the world.

Well for a start marriage was invented when life expectancy was 40. No wonder divorce is so rife. I think its time for a shake up in the marriage laws. Why can't you get married for say 10 years then after 10 years your free to either remarry or go your separate ways without the need for a costly divorce. Unless the law changes I wont even consider marriage untill I am at least 45 - 50 and thats only if I meet someone worthy of becoming my husband. That way there is a chance I could put up with whoever I marry for the rest of my life. But the chances are I wont. I like doing what I want when I want without having to answer to anyone. Unfortunately I have a very low opinion of men and untill that changes I am happy to stay single.

Do what you wanna do.

Just want to state that I am not against alcohol or any other drug for that matter. Each to their own I say.

The laughable reclassification of cannabis as a Class B Drug!

With the news today that cannabis has been reclassed as a Class B drug, I want to know why Alcohol isn’t illegal and classed as a Class A drug. Statistically there are more deaths and illness due to alcohol than any other drug, yet the drug is legal and you can even go into a pub and drink all day and night.

Home Secretary Jacqui Smith said there was "uncertainty at the least" on the future impact on young people's mental health as a result of using cannabis. Why then when we know the risks on peoples health due to the misuse of alcohol is that particular DRUG still legal? The same can be said for tobacco, but thats still legal.

It is a fact that most violent incidents on the streets on a weekend are fuelled by the legal DRUG alcohol. But why do the government and many people refuse to recognise alcohol as a drug at all? I’ll tell you why. Most of them are probably Alcoholics in denial or just like the odd drink, and remember that odd drink has the DRUG ALCOHOL in it. Do you know that if you cannot get through a whole week without a drink then you are an alcoholic? FACT! So if you like a drink on a Sunday and can’t miss that drink then you have a problem. It might not be a huge problem in your life, but in the eyes of addition, you have one.

Most of our politicians can’t get through the day without the DRUG alcohol so it’s no wonder they come up with these bright ideals NOT! To any politicians reading this, if you want the rest of us to stop taking drugs, why not... a) stop taking them yourself and b) spend your time and MY money on rehabilitation centres and STOP wasting time on reclassifications of drugs.

I agree with the Liberal Democrat MEP Chris Davies when he stated "The reality is cannabis has been illegal for 80 years and it has made no difference whatsoever to its usage... The use of cannabis should be a matter of health policy not criminal law.

A drug is a drug, they should either all be illegal or all legal. You can’t classify drugs because every drug is only dangerous when you misuse it. FACT!

One final question .....

If Alcohol was invented in this day and age would it be legal? No of course not. It would probably be a Class A drug.

Good luck to Barack Obama!

It was great to watch Barack Obama become the 44th president of the United States last week. I had a lump in my throat watching it. I have a good feeling about this man and my instincts are normaly spot on.

Good luck Barack!
