New York Slimes ^ | 6/5/12 | Steve F.

ALBANY — The New York Police Department, the mayor and the city’s top prosecutors on Monday endorsed a proposal to decriminalize the open possession of small amounts of marijuana, giving an unexpected lift to an effort by Gov.

“…thanks for doing the percentages.”

No problem at all. Just setting the facts straight. It only took me 10 minutes and I was curious myself.

“Man, you have got to get off the drugs, and as an immigrant, please quit pushing them for the children and future of America, you and the rest of the left are destructive forces for the United States.”

I never was “on drugs”, “man”. I am a US Citizen and have been an American for decades. This is my home and I would never go anywhere else. My old country has not existed in over two decades. I have never taken a dime in handouts and contribute more to the US than 95%+ of other residents. I started here with almost nothing and am not even close to a leftist or a socialist. Again, I am not pushing drugs on anyone and don’t believe alcohol nor other drugs should ever be used irresponsibly. I am simply showing that the WOD is a more destructive force to America than the drugs themselves will ever be. The WOD actually increases dangerous substance abuse. I’m practically begging to gain more faith in our government on this issue but in 7 years since I began my crusade nobody has proven me wrong…

Your percentages proved my point, you are so deep into the drug world that you are obsessed with drugs, it is an agenda with you.

It is disturbing that immigrants are pushing for drug use in America and defending and promoting their use.

Bloomberg and the pushers depend on you people, that is quite a city that you people have put together there.

How does it prove your point? Only 1 in 10 posts are related and most of them are a result of the back-and-forth conversations like this one. By threads, it comes out to approx. 1 in 30. Hardly an “obsession”. Feel free to count them yourself.

“It is disturbing that immigrants are pushing for drug use in America and defending and promoting their use. Bloomberg and the pushers depend on you people, that is quite a city that you people have put together there.”

I have already refuted and explained all of this to you several times. You cannot or refuse to understand. Who are “you people”? I hate the government in this city and state and do everything in my power to install a conservative constitutional government. I love many other aspects of this city and will stay here to fight it out. And now you start with the "immigrant" label. I am more American and contribute more than the vast majority of people born here.
