Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Actually, I was going to say marijuana will eventually be legalized in all 50 states and you can bet people will be puffing away anytime and anywhere.
Even though it distorts perception and affects one's ability to think clearly, those of us who don't like the smell of marijuana will just have to tolerate it - and those stoned on it.
Wait and see.
I agree, the Federal Government will legalized Marijuana as long as the State the Federal Governments are allowed to Regulate and Tax Marijuana just like Alcoholic beverages.

<quoted text>Humans have been polluting the world forever with campfires and clear-burns for agriculture and hunting. But so, too, has the world itself polluted itself with volcanism, lightning and lightning-forest fires, methane releasing plants and swamps and rotting animals.

The major difference hear is that the Earth heals itself over tens of thousands and even millions of years and it's polluting is widely distributed over time and distances. Humans are quick and dirty, so quick and dirty that the Earth can't keep up its cleaning chores anymore.

But I don't think that campfires, Autumn Leaf Burning and smoking tobacco in the privacy of out homes is going to bring time to a standstill. We drink from plastic bottles leaching chemicals that can cause genetic changes. We consume foods made from GMO tinkering that hasn't been thoroughly explored for safety.. We tolerate a lot of dangerous behaviors from alcohol consumers at sports events and laugh it off, Modernista babes are cutting off their toes to fit into stylish high heels, mothers are getting plastic surgery for their prepubescent darlings and taking drugs to lose weight and yet the PC Chihuahuas are yapping at every corner about 64oz. pop, 2nd hand smoke, McDonald's Menu and quoting Dr. Oz like he was the Wall st. version of St. Peter.

Hypocrisy and misdirected priorities are more of a social problem than the PC Crowd's latest Project-Of-The-Day.
I believe I will one day regret saying this....Good post, and I agree. Nicely put.

As an agnostic, I have my own feelings. However, if I don't what to see the nativity scene, then I look the other way! My opinion - they are a symbol of the holiday season like wreaths, greenery, colored lights, etc. I don't care to worship in a church, so I make the decision not to go. However, this doesn't mean I don't feel churches should be banned.

When does it stop? My rights should not inflict on the rights of others, and in a likewise manner your rights should not inflict on mine. You like to smoke? Fine! However, I will excuse myself from a situation if you decide to light up because I don't choose to smell like your smoke. I don't care to own a gun (red-headed with quick temper - not a good idea). However, that doesn't mean you can't own a gun. If I were to learn the fetus I carry will not survive in the world without many surgeries, will need tube feedings and similar treatments to sustain its life, it is MY decision to terminate the pregnancy. My fetus, my body, my decision.

I think it all falls back to having respect and honor for other human beings.

Yes, thank you. Without getting into a discussion completely off topic, I may have been referring more toward pressure in delivery.

And someone as high as a kite will say "no" on all three questions and get hired. Marijuana wasn't one of the no-nos.
Many people are routinely drug tested; many jobs require drug testing prior to being hired.
Is that fair? What if a person likes to smoke pot from time to time on the weekends? Doesn't mean he's a drug addict and incapable of doing his job.
A person could go and drink on the weekends and still do his or her job on Monday morning.
I can't stand all this probing into peoples lives. I understand why it is done, especially with healthcare workers, police, ambulance drivers emts, etc., but, there are teas people can drink to cover the drugs in your system. We've had quite a few cops and firefighters here busted for selling drugs, mainly oxycontin.
A person could have a prescription for pain medication and be higher than a person who smoked a joint on the weekend.

With the fiscal cliff looming for the United States, some Republican members of Congress said Sunday they are ready to break a long standing pledge not to raise taxes.

"The only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming Greece. And Republicans should put revenue on the table," South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham said on ABC's "This Week."

Read more of the discussion of the fiscal on "This Week" today.

Graham's comments followed those by another Republican senator, Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, who said last week he'll no longer abide by the pledge.

"I care more about my country than I do about a 20-year-old pledge," he said in a local interview.

He got support today from House member Peter King, another Republican from New York.

"I agree entirely with Saxby Chambliss -- a pledge he signed 20 years ago, 18 years ago is for that Congress," King said on NBC's "Meet the Press." He added, "The world is changed and the economic situation is different."

Wait and see.
And maybe the lesson has been learned that imposing your habits upon others just because you have an overblown sense of your own entitlement is something that will not be tolerated in today's society.

Anyway, by default most pot smokers will just chill out at home. Maybe you should try some. For, you know, the chill out part. Then we can start calling you Bob Marley and all will be right with the world.

what a pipe dream.(yes, pun!)
