Amnesty Bill - defeat it. It exists because Right Wingers, including Obama want to continue to destroy unions and depress wages - for even higher profit for the few;<quoted text>How do you feel about the Amnesty Bill that's in the House? How do you feel about Obama supporting the destruction of the south, by supporting this bill and overreaching into State affairs? Like blocking one parts of our state laws, on the grounds that they violate federal laws. While turning a blind eye to other states that are legalizing narcotics?
Please- be an American - every Red State is enacting every law possible to destroy democracy in their states.
Right Wing Wacko states, like Florida, cut their voting days way back - to keep working people from voting; and enact voter ID laws,(even though all agree voter fraud is a pretend issue), just to intimidate poor voters.
By God, if the right to vote isn't a Constitutional Right, then nothing is a Constitutional Right. If you let the Red States stop people from voting - don't come bitching when the Blue States stop people from owning firearms.
As to state's rights to legalize marijuana - blame the Right Wing Republican Dominated Activist Supreme Court - not Obama - they took that away - as their corporate masters demanded.
But that's a hot button for me.
Criminalizing marijuana is the stupidest, most self-defeating, idiotic policy that politicians so for their corporate masters.
I'm a classic conservative.
Anyone with an IQ above room temperature knows we should immediately legalize marijuana.
I spent some 8 years of my 22 in law enforcement working drugs. I have been to hundreds of alcohol fueled fight, and many murders, but in 22 years have never a marijuana fueled act of violence.
We have spent trillions of dollars and made criminals billions in profits in order to stop people from smoking a bush they can grow in their back yard, in order to force them to pay thousands to doctors and for prescriptions, or buy corporately profitable beer and liquor.
When my family members had cancer, I made sure they had all the pot they could use, and every day I wondered if they'd get arrested and incarcerated - because they didn't want to die in pain - how stupid is that to have to worry about.
But hey -- the Makers Mark, Anheiser-Busch, and Jim Beam people pay the politicians, and law enforcement justifies billions in budgets - so it won't change.
Finally, Obama is a Right Winger.
Right Wingers constantly writing posts about how we Moderates and Progressives should be disappointed in Obama, because he has all these Right Wing policies, then claim Obama is a liberal- defies rational thought.
The only "liberal" in politics today that I can think of is Senator Franken - and he's a self-made millionaire capitalist too.
