“Hugs, Not Drugs”
and
“Hugs, Not Bullets”

Resemblance? Pretty obvious idiocy, isn’t it? Or am I just *cynical*, after all those feel-good/do-nothing/spend-a-billion-$/no-results worthless programs?

The “Drugs” idiocy sure didn’t work, and the “Bullets” stupidity probably won’t, either. Someone forgot to tell the addicted kids and the drug dealers about the “Drugs” ad campaign, and they’ll forget to tell the narco-terrorists about the “Bullets” idiocy campaign, too. $10 says we can count on it.

Maybe I’m just jaded with liberal, feel-good stuff like that. My bad, I guess, JSNTN.

Didn’t we try something stupid like that once? “Hugs, Not Drugs”?

Hugs Not Drugs is about parents educating their children against drugs (http://www.hugsnotdrugs.com/index.php/history); please explain the resemblance you see.

“Hugs, Not Drugs”

“Hugs, Not Bullets”

Resemblance? Pretty obvious idiocy, isn’t it?

So that's all the resemblance you were implying?

Or am I just *cynical*, after all those feel-good/do-nothing/spend-a-billion-$/no-results worthless programs?

Please provide evidence that billions were spent on “Hugs, Not Drugs.” Based on the link I provided it appears to be a fully voluntary and privately-funded initiative.

The “Drugs” idiocy sure didn’t work

Not even among those who chose to participate?
