That's what we need. A bunch of stoners running around smoking weed whenever and whereever they feel like it.

Probably liberals too...as if they don't have enough problems with perspective...

We encountered a Carbon Unit of male origin whom the other liberal units refered to as Blind Melon Chitlin. He was as sightless as he was brainless for he endeavored to back engineer our machines.
His lifespan was short and quick. His Melon was crushed and his Chitlins ground under the titanium gears.

Too cold to swim in the ocean this time of year. I don't go out that far anyway.

But Obama said the rise of the oceans will begin to slow and our planet will begin to heal because he was elected.

Pretty outrageous statement for a president to make, huh? One might think he's a bit narcissistic.

the potheads lament...

{...To date, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved a single medication that is smoked because smoking is considered such a crude means by which to deliver medicine. Because THC may be beneficial to the treatment of some illnesses, though, researchers continue their attempts to refine the isolation of it and to develop alternative non-smoking delivery systems. Marinol is a current example of a drug successfully made from synthetic THC to treat nausea in chemotherapy patients. According to the Institute of Medicine “there is little future in smoked marijuana as a medically approved medication."

“Marijuana and Medicine: Assessing the Science Base,” Institute of Medicine, 1999; cited in U.S. Department of Justice Drug Enforcement Administration, Exposing the Myth of Medical Marijuana."

Mitt Romney is to visit President Obama at the White House. President Obama will let him sit in his empty chair as a Christmas present.

Compassionate Liberals asking us to sacrifice....

Cherokee Warren...

"...Several employees at Harvard Law School circulated a petition asking all law school members, who could, to make such a sacrifice. Warren and her husband (also a Harvard Law professor) have combined yearly incomes in the $1 million range and she earned another $200,000 for work she called "part-time" in Washington. During this uneasy period when across campus staff feared for their livelihoods, Warren remained silent.

Harvard president Drew Faust — whose own salary is close to $1 million — and university administrators ignored requests for pay reductions. Ultimately 275 lower-income employees lost their jobs and many more were persuaded to retire. Harvard professors, ever fond of inveighing against “corporate greed” and voicing slogans like “shared sacrifice,” suffered no inconvenience.

Warren now vows to go to Washington to fight for the middle class. But, like so many academics, she is more adept at feathering her own nest than truly helping Americans in need."

I wish Republicans would stand in solidarity on the steps of Congress and announce they will not interfere in any way, shape or form with Obama's plans for the next four years.

It would scare the phooey out of congressional democrats and the majority of liberals.

It might even paralyze Senate Democrats from making any decision whatsoever. The wrong decision means lost votes. And they won't have anyone to blame.

It's a Democrat's nightmare.

Oh, lighten up. I actually don't like the criminalization of casual smokers of marijuana.

But to say smoking weed in public is more acceptable than tobacco is ludicrous. It may not have the harmful chemicals but it has other effects that others may not want to be subjected to.

These fools gladly encourage the EPA to strangle every aspect of our lives on the conjecture that invisible particulates in the atmosphere, measured in 'parts per billion' are deadly, yet they think dense clouds of smoke, repeatedly inhaled directly into their lungs, are fine - even desirable. And these are the people occupying the White House.

Obama needs all the help he can get, since he is still so completely incompetent. No wonder he is having Romney visit; Romney actually has the experience and successful background to teach the incompetent Obama how to be a successful executive, despite the Obama worshippers who only seek magic hopey-changey fantasies.
