After viewing the presidential debate between Romney (the White guy) and Obama, the children asked me if I believed Obama had smoked pot prior to the debate. I told them probably not. Pot is known to cause permanent brain damage among susceptible users. This damage is readily observed. It is known as "the stupid effect".

To Obama's credit, he switched from pot to beneficial tobacco in a desperate attempt to undue the damage done by mind rotting pot. I told the children they should judge for themselves whether or not he was successful.

In the Middle East, Obama sides with the most radical Islam. See an interesting analysis which pull in that direction:

http://www.allvoices.com/contributed-news/129...

And then as long as Obama does not add a comma in the NDAA notes, with an apology, I will consider him as the number one terrorist on the planet.

The human right applies to all humans, if not, there are no more human right.

Just when sampling around me, as I'am relatively old, I got a sad confirmation on the most commonly available statistics.

Those "abusing pot" for 30 years are healthy and life successful (job, children)...
Those abusing alcohol are dead.
Those abusing tobacco are dead.
Those abusing read meat are dead.

I am afraid you give wrong information to the children, Ronald.

I also doubt that Obama switched to tobacco. I guess it has been addicted to tobacco, by mixing it with marijuana. Tobacco is very addictive, and toxic, when inhaled, for 3/4 of the people.

At least suggest to take oral tobacco.

These numbers were rigged. Yahoo did a poll and 57% of people don't trust the BS being pedaled here. This is Chicago politics at its worst.

But yet the great investor, tv/rek says numbers don't lie....Not true, but he does lie.

Yes. Non-smokers begin dying of "natural causes" around age 40. Over the years, I too have watched most of my friends who do not smoke tobacco die - many of them in the most horrifically painful manner imaginable. I can only say that non-smoking is an unnecessary tragedy. Since Big Government began its war against decent "clear minded" women and men who smoke tobacco, the only noticeable result has been that the number of non-smokers dying has soared.

Most of the 60s era potheads (druggies)(now in power) went on to be Government politicians, lawyers, and into positions of control of expensive taxpayer funded failed Government schools. And what a mess they have made of things.

Most increasingly destitute non-pothead Americans who constitute the minority of Americans who pay taxes point to the failed Obama economy as the predicted outcome of the Africans and their zonked out pothead allies seizing control of Government. Were that the end of it, it might be acceptable, but the Obama depression has spread from the pothead controlled US economy into a worldwide depression.

another amazing display of otherworldliness by you.

I wish the pot heads controlled the economy.

but it is controlled by big corporations, who themselves, dont buy or grow pot.

the worldwide depression didnt seem to cover the globe....
I assume youre talking about the economic freefall and subsequent economic ditch this country went through, starting around this season, in 08'???

when the stock market lost 3000 points?? and the country shed 5 million jobs in year??

we call that the "great recession" and there are many reasons for it...

the biggest is that wall st started acting like a vegas casino, and bunding mortgages and selling them!! THEN BETTING AGAINST them.

If you have a finger to point, point it at wall st.

these are a list of the corpoarte cartels whe are against the legalization of marijuana.(you do know its illegal according to federal law?)

big pharma...

big tobacco...
big (global)alcohol...
big chemical companies
big energy companies(by extention)

and of course wall st., who backs everybody up financially.

remember the post where you reminded me it was just one debate??

and to get off it?

the debate was a lot cover.....

this talking point youre on.......YOU too should move on.

no ones buying it.

a week or two ago?? it was the polls that were being cooked??

now its the labor dept stats??

this kind of stiff is just silly.....stick to the issues...

I think in recanting the debate, ive at least done that.

the economy has been slowly growing for 30 months....

these job numbers arnt much different from other months this year??

so again, move on, it is silly, and no one is buying it.

why?? because it doesnt look any diferent from any other month of sluggish lackluster growth.

Yes. When Government licensed media organs say "recession", they are merely using politically correct terminology to indicate "depression". That is to say, a contraction in business activity which results in increased unemployment. Prior to the arrival of the "Great Obama Recession", that was considered to be reasonable propaganda because "The Great Depression" was considered to be a worse business contraction. That is no longer the case.

You also hit the nail on the head when you indicated that the "Great Obama Recession" is the end result of a prior Democrat administration strong-arming banks and other mortgage providers to underwrite taxpayer guaranteed home loans for unqualified individuals, turning a sound financial system into a Vegas type casino operation. The purpose of that strong-arming was to implement dysfunctional Government social programs - primarily aimed at the destruction of peaceful homogenous neighborhoods.

Left and right makes no more a lot of meaning for me. I was so happy when Obama got elected. The first genuine-pothead-US-president!
I thought that he would at the least stop the harassment of the MJ smokers and I thought he would at the least keep his promise to not let the feds interfere with the states. But he didn't. I lied to myself in assuming that the task was hard, and that he did not have much control. But what came as a shock was the NDAA notes. I mocked the idea, when I heard of it one year before, of such detention of american citizens, as a conspiracy fantasy, but not only Obama signed those notes, but his administration is the one insisting on the precise language which makes the NDAA notes equivalent with the usual well known dictator trick.
If you want me to the left, then I will define the left by people like Ron Paul, Gary Johnson, or Normal Solomon. Romney is at the right, and Obama seems to me at the extreme right, I'm afraid. With Obama, I don't believe America is controlled by Americans, but only by international non transparent criminal special interests. Hard and sad time. Now we have to legalize MJ, only for saving democracy and the consitution.

I agree, it is complex....

voting for any mainstream politician means a vote for further prohibition...

yes, Obama was the guy in high school, with the bags of weed for sale after school.
........ and at first they gave the order to lay off patients.

then they realized how safe an electoral bet california was, and went for the law and order vote....something he surly could win re-election WITHOUT.

what happens now with the dea and the justice dept will be interesting to watch...but I doubt much will change.

I vote always along the lines of what is best for the population at large....I do admit, i like ron paul and gary johnson when it comes to their stance on prohibition and empire, as well as the fed???
but after that?? those two emerge from the same clown car of deregulating EVERYTHING for the wealthy,( to tilt the economic playing feild that much further towards the elite), that EVERY oher mainstream republican emerges from.

at least Obama favors capital injection into the economy.

the middle class creates the demand, dont you agree??

so keeping cash in their hands is crucial, as capitalism doesnt REALLy work for the masses, as it naturally accumulates wealth at the top.

thus weve had wealth redistribution mechanisms built into the economy of the 20th century...

as opposed to 19th when the robber barrons set thier own prices, and used labor like disposable capital, with no regulation at all on saftey and work conditions or hours.

their actions were the REASON we had the progressive age.

I agree
with you that the world is basically run by the corporate cartels that keep weed illegal at the federal level.

they have SO much to lose by its gained popularity and finding out WHAT other things POT and its derivative chemicals can cure!!

anyone with half a brain can see the profit motive for supressing something as miraculous as cannabis.......... and in the corporate world, one cartel relies on the next..... they definately look out for each other.

peace

if you look at polling data,(mainstream, not unicorn land)

youll see that the majority of americans DONt blame the "great recession" on poor poeple wanting more than they could afford....

they rightfully cite the bi-partisan removal of glass-steigal in 1999(passed during the great depresssion)

that law kept investment banking and everyday banking separate.

but once the same bank could do both??

as an intelligent person you can see the conflict ?? right??

no?? well they took advantage of what they were allowed to...

the result is well documented by matt tiabi of rolling stone magazine, and othet notable journalist...it lead to sub=prime crisis. we tax payers bailed out wall st to the tune of 730 billion?? and it was because of the shenanagans of the poor masses?? boy, you are confused. these wall st.banks like goldman sachs started acting like casinos anbd budling mortagages......then hedging bets agianst their failing investments??

this sort of s**t should certainly be made illegal again.

journalist and others, also note, that no one except bernia madoff was ever prosecuted!! trillions embezzled?? and no culprits except the poor to blame?? give us a break ron.

the wealthy have offshored 32 trillion dollars, and some of those trillions came from bilking people out of their houses!!

but they have you poor saps blaming the poor for them?? while they all become billionaires??

that is why i call the tea party, the "billionaires rights party"

Yes. I agree. In more enlightened times, envy was known as one of the seven deadly sins. Following the revolution, the political ruling class has effectively used envy to prevent opposition from forming, opposition that might jeopardize their ruling position.

It's a stretch to believe "the majority of Americans" have "opinions" one way or the other about the important issues of the day other than those opinions they have been conditioned to believe. "The majority" is almost always wrong. Were that not true, stock markets could never work.

Our current electoral system is based on the theory that the uninformed will cancel one another out and the informed minority will then be the deciding factor in elections. Unfortunately, since the revolution, the uninformed seem to be heavily concentrated on the left side of the political spectrum.

It is true that Glass-Steagall was repealed during the Clinton administration. However, no less an authoritative source than "The Washington Post" says that the Repeal of Glass-Steagall was not a cause of the financial collapse but it served as a multiplier of that collapse. According to "The Post":

*(because of the strong arming of the banks by the politicians which caused them to find some way to diminish Government caused risk) "...Consider the context in which it occurred:"

No one condones the action of the banking industry going along with the demands of the politicians to lend taxpayer guaranteed money to unqualified home "buyers". On the other hand, banking executives had learned the lesson of Big Tobacco executives who resisted Governmental efforts to nationalize Big Tobacco. We cannot read the minds of Big Bank executives, but I believe it is fair to surmise that they did not want to make the same mistake.

yes ronald, we already know that the mitt romney you love is the one on the hidden video talking about how 47% of the electorate need to get a life....weve heard all this randian rhetoric before......luckily it is all tripe that has no bearing on the real world.

ron...?

if repealing glass steigal was multiplier of the sub-prime crisis??? then we should probably reinstate it, as the next huge meltdown(which is imminent any old year now) would be multiplied again by these wall st. bankers and their casino bahavior.

agreed??

im not for nationalizing the banks.....but better citizen oversight is needed.....

they have proven time and time again, that they cant be let alone to handle(responsibly) the world banking system.
