Has been even before the Constitution was written. In fact they did everything they could to keep it from be ratified.

That's something we'll never know, will we - but you'll obsess over it none-the-less.
There were some great and influential people of color, you've chosen to marginalize them in favor of harping over what might have been. Look up "General Alex Dumas", he might sooth your soul.

Your position does not account for state laws legalizing marijuana in defiance of federal law.
and how have the feds been dealing with that?

so busting guns stores for not following federal law will be commonplace. who's going to stop them? the State Police? but oh wait. do they get in the way of busting pot shops? no?

and there ya go.

Ending drug prohibition would do more to stop gun violence than anything else the government could do and it would not only not cost no money it would significantly raise revenue if it was taxed like tobacco and alcohol.

There was a time when I would have agreed with you on that point but not anymore, I think privacy was the way to go.
Where is "privacy" mentioned?

"All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

I have news, better availability of contraceptives might prevent some of those pregnancies that were not planned. You know, like through planned Parenthood or through their health insurance policies - you know, the things you right whiners bitch about 24/7.
I have news,too: even sluts can become biological mothers.

Give them an EBT Card, a First Slut haircut and then the Entitlement Tribe will dance on Pennsylvania Ave.

If this poll is a true reflection of how Americans views our country after reelecting Obama than the question becomes are’ Low IQ voter’ a danger to democracy!!
When people say that Barack Obama is the worst president since Jimmy Carter, they’re not kidding; a new Gallup Poll taken between January 7-10 shows that when Americans were asked whether they had a positive view of the country, only 39% agreed!!

"Harvard Prof Says Neanderthal Clones Possible but Experts Doubt It"

Some say such experiments were widely carried out by Nazi scientists during WWII giving birth to the sub-species known as Right Wingus Americanus.

Think about it ... the timing's right, they bred, they bought mobile homes ...

You could be right......making drugs easier to get could help a bunch (sarcasm).

Is fighting 'over' drugs as lethal as fighting 'on' drugs?

So, is it post civil rights or post civil war? If you're going to perpetuate a horseshit construct, at least get the time-line straight.
Slavery was instrumental in the development of ALL advanced civilizations, including ours - you know it and I know it. Despicable as it is, slavery freed up great minds to accomplish great things.
It was, as stated, post civil rights. Seems perfectly simple, but I can see that the Mudbuilder of modulars might not get it..."slavery freed up great minds to accomplish great things"??? I still can't believe you said that. Just who accomplished great things by having slaves? Shakespeare? Watt? Edison? Gates? <rolls eyes, shakes head>

Unlike you (Ghost/Debil), Flack did not murder his wife and child while driving drunk. Or so you have bragged.

In spite of your half-assed statement, drunk drivers kill THOUSANDS of people every year. The single most effective deterrent has been severe penalties for first time offenders. Under Obama, gun crime prosecutions have declined by 17%- not gun crimes, but prosecutions. It's as if Obama likes crooks with guns (Fast and Furious), it helps to push his agenda.
Step away from the bong pally. Under Obama__please be specific, federal or state prosecutions, if you don't know don't waste your time responding eh?

"Slut" is your word.

My point is simply that women who bear children without a father in the home are on average dooming their children to a life of poverty.
