I think Bob's been nipped in the "bud"...
It's not that hard to earn a really good living in the United States. The bigger problem lies in that today's youth are lazy. They don't want to work hard. Or they just are not bright enough to climb the ladder.
Those in their 20s these days work far harder than your generation did when they were our age, Bob. I have countless friends who are working 80-100 hour weeks with no overtime (salaried), bringing their pay to around minimum wage. People with great talent who spent years developing their skills in college, who graduated with degrees. Some aren't even being paid, working for free in the hopes that they may someday make 10 bucks an hour.
Just because some (like yourself) manage to pull it off doesn't mean it's reasonably doable. There are some with cancer who are given days to live and end up fighting for years. Doesn't mean those who pass away that same week are wimps. That argument demonstrates very poor understanding of statistics. You can't define trends with outliers.
I can understand saying something like "hey, I managed to pull it off, don't lose hope!" - but what you just said is more insulting than encouraging.

...from this site maybe.
I have a very uneasy feeling about the whole situation. I will be perfectly honest with everyone. I do not think it is a paranoia cuz I am legal, way under plant count, way under limit. It's hard to put my finger on it, cuz honestly I am not used to being legal, so I have always been paranoid I guess. Not sure if maybe Bob is indeed flipping out, and for awhile I started to like him. Then IF he is losing it, for being a caregiver, I wouldn't be a very fucking good one.
bob my email is medicatedacresup at yahoo.
I think it is healthier for all involved if he stays away.
Einstein said that conducting the same experiment over and over expecting different results was crazy.
It would be insane for him to want to come back after what he did here.
He failed miserably. Over and over again.
I really had a hard time believing anything from him, he flip flopped on so many stories, calling us all profiteers and then turning around admitting he was growing way before the law was passed. When he first came here he claimed he couldn't even get two oz off a plant with his ungodly light setup because his strain wasn't capable of yielding more than that yet he just said the other day he had a 4.5oz plant ready to harvest.. So many things, he was shady, in a weird way.
I don't think his recent actions had anything to do with his PD... I think he got sick of everyone not agreeing with him after trying and trying to cause issues, he finally snapped.
Fact is whether we are in this to make a profit or if we are in it to help patients or just ourselves, we are all in this together and it is us against those in power who do not want us to have the right to grow our medicine. If we are all divided then that leaves us weak and much easier to divide further and crumble the law from underneath us. You are either with us or against us.
We all need to find a common ground (which is pretty fucking simple) and stand together as one.
OK I'm off my podium now.
How did he steal the headers from the top of the page though? Hope someone gets them back from him.
I hear your concern Glad and I felt slightly bad for a second. Tough love was never supposed to easy. Mostly I tried not to pay attention to B, because he seemed like a pain in the ass to me. He was a weird mix of old/conservative ideas with a relentless pursuit for pushing his beliefs. He may have been an ok guy most of the time, after-all he adopted a bunny! However at times I wondered, "who the F' is this guy..." and I found his overall efforts suspect. I'll miss his arguments a wee bit as they were entertaining to a degree. Stockholm Syndrome comes to mind and I can move on without difficulty.
G- I respect that you are possibly concerned about B and willing to give him a chance considering he may not be happy or suffering in some way... that is a true caregiver! However consider that in my definition of friendly demeanor he failed. Talking about the feds and ip addresses, ppl getting locked-up, constant finger pointing, etc... that bullshit is cruel and twisted... just sayin' bro.
Peace to All, even Bob...
