Neighbors

neighbors.jpg

I captured a picture of my neighbors today. If they can take my sleep from me I certainly should be allowed to take their picture from them. As I mentioned before I’ve had my suspicions about them. They exhibit many of the typical drug-dealing behaviors, lots of activity at their house all hours of the night, curb drive ups where somebody just goes out to the vehicle in question for a minute or two then they drive back off, a guy standing in the yard all night. I’ve wanted to give them the benefit of the doubt but after loading this picture onto the computer I noticed the word bubbles. This isn’t looking good.

    I wish that guy on the right would speak up. I can barely hear him…

  2. Mexigogue says:

    Hit refresh, I redid the picture.

    My neighbors have a problem with water. Apparently, they don’t understand a few things like “displacement” and that tubs aren’t bottomless pits when you put the drain plug in.

    If the government would just LEGALIZE drugs, supply and demand would bring the price way down, the profit margin would go way down, and these guys would have to go get real jobs. Then they would HAVE to get some sleep and not keep YOU up by making noise all night.

    Everybody that stays fucked up all the time would be less inclined to beg and rob people because they would need less money for their habits.

    Some lawyers would be out of work too.

  5. Mexigogue says:

    I absolutely agree Citizen. Big government interferes with the free market and creates a high profit high risk underworld market for the forbidden stuff. If cheeseburgers become illegal I’ll probably have mufuckas slangin’ double burgers on my street for $10 a pop. And the other burger thugs will come by and do drive-bys.

  6. guy in the UNLV Jacket says:

    That’s way over simplifying it. The problem with drugs isn’t necessarlily the market in which they are sold, the problem is the drugs themselves. Didn’t you guys pay any attention to Mr Mackey? “Drugs are bad, umkay!”

  7. Mexigogue says:

    Yes but the problems associated with illegal drug traffic (prostitution and violence) are worse than the effect of the drugs themselves. So if drugs were made legal you would still have health problems for the drug users but there would be less health problems associated with prostition and violence.

  8. guy in the UNLV Jacket says:

    Dude a hit of crack can cost $.50 and a crack head will still lose their job and end up on the street.

  9. Mexigogue says:

    Yes. But in a world where drugs are legal a jobless crackhead would bum a few bucks from somebody to support his habit (like winos). When drugs are illegal the price is driven up and he’s commiting crimes for drug money.

  10. R says:

    Yeah, those guys are obviously drug dealers since they’re clearly Mexicans.

    Goddamn Mexicans.

  11. guy in the UNLV Jacket says:

    AAAAAAHHHHHHH! “R” don’t you know the difference between Mexicaln and Black Guys?

  12. guy in the UNLV Jacket says:

    Dude it’s not that simple on the drug tip. You are just repeating back Liberatarian rhetoric.

  13. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    we all know winos don’t commit crimes and are model citizens

  14. Mexigogue says:

    It IS that simple. If somebody wants to poison themselves for their own recreation why should we put resources out there to stop them? The drug war has been going on forever and people are getting high anyway. As long as they’re gonna get high I’d rather they buy their stuff from Rite Aid than from the dudes across from me. My street is supposed to be residential but in effect it’s being used for commerce.

  15. Mexigogue says:

    Hey I had the perfect way to fight the drug war and the only way it will work: Capital punishment every time for any offense, no exceptions. But since nobody wanted to get onboard that band wagon the only other option is to legalize it. Because you can’t win the war unless you do it like Saudi Arabia.

  16. R says:

    Astute observations, Mexidude.

    And, yes, I do know the difference between Mexicans and black people. Mexicans do the work that black people won’t.

  17. HMT says:

    if we got together we could start our own surviellance/funny caption of surviellance pics company Mexi. It would be the shit..

  18. Mexigogue says:

    I almost put up the picture with empty word bubbles so you guys could fill them in with your own ideas!

  19. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!! Open your eyes. I’m not worried about the druggies per say, I could care a less about them. If you are stupid enough to smoke crack and kill yourself then so be it, but druggies don’t live in a vacume and their actions effect me. I am worrid about their kids and my tax money spent to take care of them, I am concerned about my money that goes to pay for the stupid asses once they make it into the mental health system. MRS UNLV is in the Mental health field and about 93% of her clients (28/30) are druggies. None of them had histories of mental illness prior to the Meth or the crack but they all need some sort of state sponsored assistance now and I pay for that. Those are my worries. For me the crime and prostitution are small worries for me. We all know drug dealers tend to more or less kill each other and druggie prostitutes arn’t all that bad because they keep th e market price of pussy pretty low.

  20. R says:

    Well, if we legalized drugs we can also enact legislation that says, “Being as how we all recognize the stupidity inherent in doing this shit, emergency rooms and doctors are under no obligation to give medical care to patients brought in for drug abuse related issues; as such they are under no liability for withholding such services for said reasons.”

    Blah, blah, blah. Oh yah, and insurance companies can also refuse to cover you if you do drugs – yes, they will test you before giving you coverage.

    There are ways to deal with it. I mean, really, how much did the Hipocratic Oath have to do with people just being too fucking stupid to deserve life?

  21. I say just handle druggies the way the Saudi’s do. Eventually they will get the message.

  22. Mexigogue says:

    And as for the children being screwed up by being born to drug addicted parents, that’s already happening. I think the law is a very poor deterrent to drug use. There’s a reason I don’t smoke weed. Not because it’s against the law but because I don’t like it. Most people who don’t use drugs now aren’t that way because of the law, they wouldn’t use crack even if it were legal because they don’t think it’s a good idea.

  23. Drugs are to cheap and the consequences don’t out weigh the benefits. In the 70’s and early 80’s Cocaine wasn’t that big of a deal because it was expensive and not readilly avaliable, once they learned how to make cheap drugs and market them to the masses all hell broke loose. Amphetamines used to be hard to make and therefore expensive and not readilly avaliable, With the mass production of “Crystal Meth” they are allover and causing havoc. I beg to differ that lower cost and easily attainable drugs are the answer

  24. Mexigogue says:

    People who make meth at home end up with toxic homes. Their kids who don’t even use the drugs are exposed to so much through residue that they exhibit the same symptoms as the adults who use the drugs. I maintian that less children will be hurt if these drugs are made by a company, not in homes. Not that I care about other peoples kids (I don’t), I just want to win the argument.

  25. You can’t win the argument. I don’t care about their kids either. I care about my $$ and how expensive druggies are after they fry their brains and become a drag on society.

  26. Mexigogue says:

    They shouldn’t be allowed to drag on society. They should just stagger around hungry. They shouldn’t have welfare or treatment on demand on your dime (or mine). I would just step over them on the way to work. Plus a bunch of drug addicts curled up in the fetal position is better than any anti-drug billboard I can think of.

  27. R says:

    Here’s why drugs won’t ever be legalized:

    The industry wouldn’t turn a profit.

    With the legalization of drugs, what a society has effectively done is opened up this underground world of drug use. Which means that once drugs are legal, the fact that one does drugs will also be available to whomever wants to look it up. And the stigmas attached to drug use will carry over into a drug-legal society.

    Like I’ve already said, you’d be refused insurance, you’d be refused a job, you’d be refused loans, credit cards, medical aid, visas, passports, automobile licenses, et al, because to all those institutions you become a liability.

    Even if you smoked weed once a month with your significant other, in a fully open drug society, everyone would know it. And so people are left with the coice: Do I want to do this, or do I want a job, car, home, etc.. And there is, of course, only one answer to that question.

    Legalize drugs and the state and other private institutions will ream you big time. Thus it isn’t profitable to the companies who would manufacture the substances.

    The only reason it makes so much money is that the knowledge is hidden.

  28. “R” with your theory then the druggies go underground again so they can drive. The only solution is to send them to Cuba the same way the Cubans sent all their losers here in the 80’s

  29. R says:

    Yah, I know. Like I said, that’s why drugs won’t become legal.

    The best thing we can do is not make non-violent drug offenders go to jail. There’s really no reason to.

  30. Phelps says:

    You’re right, R. I mean, look at all the people going broke selling beer, liquor, cigarettes, and coffee.

    Jesus, we could give you an axe and gingham dress and you would be one of the old temperance ladies.

  31. R says:

    Stigma, phelps, think of the motherfucking stigmas! I KNOW liquor is worse than smoking grass, bitch. What I’m trying to say is that in our overwhelmingly motherfucking Christian nation, the stigmas attached to drug use will form opinions of people by institutions of lending, employers, etc., etc., motherfuckin’ etcetera.

    Jesus F. Christ, I swear, dude, go like fuckin’ shoot your guns somewhere or something.

  32. Phelps says:

    There are harsh stigmas attached to heroin, crack, and other hard drugs. There are almost no stigmas attached to pot (less so than cigarettes) and cocaine is iffy.

    The good news is that from places that have decriminalized, you don’t see a leap towards hard drugs, and you don’t see a significant increase in regular use. (Some increase in casual use from people trying it, but that is all.)
