Quote: Originally Posted by haganah "it wasn't a situation he went looking for." That's not what I asked. I asked when it mattered based on your statements. So again, regardless of the legal aspect, when does it matter? I don't believe that he intentionally injured himself so that he could go to a physician and receive a prescription for oxycontin because he wanted to try oxycontin. He had a, supposedly, legitimate pain complaint and was...

Quote: Originally Posted by kaxixi I agree with this. The public school system is much bigger than the other two, and necessarily includes the worst students. The comparison Matt's trying to do is probably too hard to get right, because there really isn't any situation where the same kids go to private or public school.

Legally, I wouldn't distinguish either. But I think the hypocrite claim falls short because it wasn't a situation he went looking for.
Quote: Originally Posted by Piobaire How you deal with it is the important issue IMO. Rush picked the wrong way. Agreed.
Quote: Originally Posted by Douglas I'm always curious about the equivalence implied by the left between Rush's drug offenses and the more typical drug offenses that Rush has railed about. Oxycontin is a highly addictive drug that was prescribed to him in the course of medical treatment. Obviously he crossed an ethical line acquiring them extralegally, but it's not like the distribution of Oxycontin is in any way similar to, or even remotely as...
