The Tea Party Caucus is back in action with a new strategy and a growing membership.
Roughly 20 House Republicans attended a closed-door meeting Thursday evening in the Rayburn House Office Building, along with staffers from nearly 40 congressional offices, including those of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and fellow Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul.

Wow, 20 out of 435! What is that, 5%? Oh, I forgot about the 'staffers'. Sounds like quite a movement.

Michele Bachmann is their leader (LMMFAO)! I think thats all you need to know about that club.

Isn't it ironic (and hypocritical) how Obama asks the American people to not judge all Muslims based on the violent actions of a few but then turns around and judges (and penalizes) all law-abiding gun owners based on the violent actions of only a few?

I'm a gun owner and I know plenty of other gun owners, haven't judged any of them. In fact a lot of them agree with me.

Looks like the authorities are zeroing in on the shooter and his accomplice.

Golly, he sure doesn't look like a white radical right wing teabagger.
That is just terrible! We need to stiffen the penalties for drugs since we can't do background check were it is not legal. If you break any laws within a 36 hour period of getting your fix it is life in jail. If we could save just one life it would be worth it.

5% is more than the percentage of Americans who give a rip about Obama's failed gun law shuck and jive, and considering the OWS slackasses have exactly 0% representation in congress I'd say that's all the clownish LMMFAO's we need outta you.

i know of no documented case where a person, proven to be exclusively high on pot, was anything but mellow and sociable. unlike alcohol, there is no such thing as a bad pothead. a deadhead or a doofus maybe.

get the facts, Jack!

People rob people to get money to buy pot which is not exactly sociable. Legalizing it would lower the risk factor in getting it, thereby reducing the price. Reduced decision making and reaction time are a byproduct. What I can't understand is, unless you have pain, why would you want to look stupid on purpose? This world has become way more competitive and depends so much on education. Why give in to an expensive,(on sooo many levels) impulse or habit?

I know of very few cases where pot is used alone. In fact, it's one of the most commonly co-abused substances on the planet, frequently used together with alcohol. That's a fact, Jack.

You might be looking at one in the Colorado shooting. Until all the facts are revealed you never know.

I believe the point made earlier of what some people do to get the money to buy drugs is a valid argument as well. Like any drug, you have people who want pot and cannot afford it. Pot my not be expensive right now, but once you legalize it and turn it into a taxable, commercialized industry the price will go up.

Is someone who's already inclined to willingly kill their own brain cells by smoking weed going to go out and get a second job so they can legally purchase it? Not likely. The FACTS reveal addicts are more inclined to commit crime than work an honest job to get their fix.

It's at least a valid argument. What do you think?

Only to a certain point. There are some folks who are prone to become addicted to almost anything, food, gambling, etc etc.

That being said, pot is less addictive than cigarettes, alcohol, herion, cocaine, and all the pain killing prescription drugs available. The biggest growing problem today is not about pot addiction and stealing to get it...it's about prescription drugs and people willing to steal and kill to get them.
There are several "studies" and articles to support my statement. Do some research, real research, and you'll find it's quite disturbing.

Considering the demotivating effect that smoking pot has on a person, I'd say chances of that are extremely remote.

And to all those who claim that pot makes you a safer driver:

Pot is addicting. Whether it's less addicting than other drugs matters not. Making it legal to obtain will increase the numbers of addicted people. Addicted people are desperate and will do most anything to get their fix. How many decades of violence and crime by people desperate to get money for drugs do we have to endure before people get a clue?

I'm not against nor am I for legalizing pot. I'm just tired of potheads claiming pot is such a tame, harmless drug. It's a drug. It's addicting. It alters your mind and slows your reaction time. Making it more readily available will increase crime and potential traffic accidents. You're going to have teens who have little sense and skill driving getting high and then getting behind the wheel of a 2,000 lb moving hunk of metal.

It's dangerous enough to have people fixated on their cellphones, texting while on the highway. Now imagine some "overly relaxed" teen with his/her eyes on a text message going 80 miles an hour on Michigan's obstacle-riddled highways. Slowed reactions time, mind-altered state, attention diverted .....

Innocent people are going to die because you need some stimulant to be happy.

100% agree! I said right from the beginning this is not my issue. But guns and pot don't mix.
