Time to start busting some doors down in the Soo! Getting really tired of seeing all these drug dealers driving Audi's, BMW's and Infiniti's. Garbage like that should be dealing out of trash cans. Waste of human skin!!!!

frauleinbroomhilda,,come down to my place and watch the hookers walk the streets day and night if you want to get ticked about something. Can't believe these girls do what they do. Was watching one this AM in 4" spikes and skin tight clothes on unplowed sidewalks. Can't believe some guy will stop on his way to work and buy a piece or blow job but I watch it every day on my corner. They moved them off Gore over to Blucher, but at least they get 2 way chances now...;)

fraulein/JustCurious...Why do you gals/guys focus on the symptom and ignore the cause? You're like the pharmaceutical industry lol

People have always wanted drugs...nothing new here except that they're illegal, so someone is always going to sell a product that is in high demand.

Guys can't seem to get enough sex so someone is always going to sell a product that is in high demand.

You signed up for a capitalist society (that's what the book cover says, anyway) and you're ticked off about the system operating in its most pure form, why? Because it's not pretty? The sellers of these products didn't manipulate the populace into wanting these things....society did, no?

and fraulein that's a marketable skill you have there, picking out drug dealers by the cars that they drive. You'd make a perfect cop!

Logic...nice response. Thanks for your words of wisdom! I should have said that the drug dealers on my street drive this kind of car. Police have been trying to bust this place for quite a long time, unfortunately it's difficult to do so they tell me. Sorry if you were offended by my words.

No worries, darling...I'm fine and I appreciate the apology; a rare thing in these parts.

I figured that's what you meant and was just being facetious but thanks for the clarification.

Lesson learned for me as well. Chow and have a great 2014!
