Morning AC!

Interesting article isn't it, a bit dense, with lots of new words.

Maybe Eric Holder should read it?

Lawmaker prods attorney general to revise ‘fallacious’ pot laws: Order the study already

Quote:
A pro-pot legislator pointedly asked Attorney General Eric Holder why he wants to wait for Congress to loosen marijuana laws.

Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) reminded Holder during a House Judiciary Committee meeting Tuesday that the attorney general had the authority to ask the Secretary of Health and Human Services to conduct a study of cannabis for the possibility of reclassifying it as an illegal drug.

“In my humble opinion, and I think the majority of the people in this country, there’s no way that marijuana should be Schedule I, because this is not the same class as heroin and LSD, as it is in the code,” Cohen said.
Quote:
Holder said he was satisfied with what his office had done on the issue.

“Within the world in which I have primary responsibility, I think we have acted in a way that is appropriate,” Holder said.
WTF is he talking about? He has not acted. He has let the status quo continue, despite the evidence that overwhelmingly supports rescheduling.

JackLuis, I am afraid the Feds don't want to go too fast on this issue and be seen as activists, who do the right thing for a change.

Our so-called democracy is truly upside down. Those who don't pay taxes have the most representation and those who do pay taxes have little to no representation. Our two party political system has ground itself into a rut.

Modern technology, specifically the internet, would seem to afford a populist third party candidate the opportunity to conduct a series of nationwide polls, build a political platform and agenda based on those poll results and run a successful (landslide?) campaign. I for one am baffled as to why this hasn't happened yet. I can only conclude that the fates of Paul Wellstone and JFK Jr. (just two recent examples) have effectively dissuaded anyone from trying to step into the national spotlight as a populist candidate.

A candidate who would legalize pot as a taxable medicine/commodity, bring home most (if not all) our men and women from undeclared war zones around the world, implement a fair flat tax system void of personal and corporate loopholes, invest in domestic infrastructure projects (bridge repair, high speed commuter rail, natural gas exploration, water resource management, etc.), cut back on/eliminate sending billions (and billions!) of dollars in arms to foreign dictatorships, and truly reduce the size of our federal and state bureaucracies by taking government out of personal choice issues like birth control, gay marriage and religion, it seems, intuitively, that a candidate like that could literally come out of the blue and "fix" Washington in one election cycle.

Yet, it hasn't happened and doesn't look like it is going to happen. Yes, the sinisterly named Citizens United ruling and the fact that we have a foreign owned "news" service manipulating the hearts and minds of our citizens for the betterment of UK and Australian trading interests are partially to blame. But still, why can't a populist agenda thrive in these modern times? It's baffling.

Sadly, Mark Twain summed up this situation very succinctly over one hundred years ago ... however, I still cling to the belief that modern technology can one day, hopefully, overcome it.

"The only problem with common sense is that it is not very common." - Mark Twain

Here Here!

I found this one and wanted to put it up, because of the image.



Not very scientific, but the other side of the "Grassy Knoll".

JackLuis, I have seen that one before and it is a perfect example of government brainwashing. Thanks for posting it.

Naughty, your remarks are most intelligent and completely correct. I am 62, remember the world and hope of JFK, and am still wondering when another candidate like him will come along and fix a few glaring problems. But I have come to realize, "the powers that be" are leading us toward One World Order with one World Bank, probably located in either London or Frankfurt, both strongholds for very old European money.

Wonkette was in good form.

Quote:
Ah, the weekend. Time for yr Wonkette to get away from the computer and relax. Maybe drink some beers with friends or go hiking in the California sun or spark up a nice fat bowl of medicinal marijuana – we suffer from a chronic health condition our doctor has diagnosed as paralyzing existential anxiety with acute despair. Unfortunately our medicine has a particularly nasty side effect, according to an essay by Herman Cain’s web editor Dan Calabrese – it can also cause demonic infestation. We hope that’s nothing like the head lice we had once when we were a kid, because the medicinal shampoo we had to use for that sucked.
Quote:
Take it away, not-at-all crazy person.

The use of mind-altering substance for “recreational” purposes puts a person at serious risk of demonic attack because what you’re doing is rejecting the natural chemicals God already put in your body as insufficient to satisfy you physically and emotionally.

What a killjoy.

I have been smoking pot since I was 14, and I am now 62. If I am more open to demonic attack, then the demons must have gotten lost along the way. LOL

I smoked almost every day for fourteen years and haven't touched it in five years. I'm for legalization but I think that it will in the end be a downer for a lot of stoners. For one thing, one of the major social aspects of weed is that you are part of a secret group doing secret mysterious things that no one else knows about. And once you're in that group, you feel like you are part of something.
When it goes legal I think that a lot of people are going to miss the high of doing something illegal and getting away with it.

You can sit all day and talk about the negative health effects of pot, but if we made everything unhealthy illegal, Cheetos would be illegal. Obesity in this country is out of control and yet disgusting junk food made out of pure chemicals is allowed to be marketed and sold to children.

You either legislate everything that is unhealthy including junk food, cigarettes, alcohol, cough medicine, and weed or you make it all legal and try to put some limitations on it.

Personally I don't like the way it makes me feel anymore. I just don't have time for it, and I think that it does take away from a person's motivation to do anything other than sit around and eat.
But that's no reason to make it illegal.
