Colbert warned us about their ill ways.

The media came and covered it for days;

Repubs said "no, we're as pure as a lamb"

We'll fight for you and the 47 percent;

But look at their votes....where did they went?

Seems Mr. Karl Rove won't ever work for another President.

Ann Coulter Invited was Then was Uninvited to Speak at University in New York state.(good move on there part).

Did University campus Republicans bow to social pressure, or simply see the "error" of their ignorant ways?

Since Ann Coulter is nothing but a dingle dong, with no top floor working.

It's a great idea and an old story. Maybe that was my point.
I hope I don't sound too much like a zealot, and I won't preach or offer spoilers if you do want to read it.
It seems like you can already guess how it ends.

Lets see if the Republicans & Tea Bagges are going to act like Dead Beats, or should I say act like Grove Norquist's children of the damned?

The United States Congress Will return November 13, 2012 Tuesday to a crowded agenda of unfinished business.

Overshadowed by the urgent need for President Barack Obama and lawmakers to avert the economic double hit of tax increases and automatic spending cuts.

Go ahead Grover Norquist children in Congress, he has nothing to lose but yu all do, so are you feeling lucky punks?

I can see the appeal to delight in certain peoples failures- especially when they have created no other environment from which to learn but failure.
But at the end of the day the brutal irony is that we either learn to work together or call one another's unrelenting calamity our "success".

there are no studies that prove marijuana smoke causes cnacer to those who inhale the smoke directly??...how could marijuana cause cancer??
can you cite some study??
there have been studies like that, conducted for tobacco usage...
cancer is mainly caused by smoking all the hundreds of dangerous chemicals that are pulped into the tobacco...after they mash it..
then they shred it?? and roll it up!!
studies?

it's commonsense. you put smoke in your lungs. you put something that is not suppose to be in there. you irritate them. you get cancer. it's that simple.

another thing.. people who smoke marijuana usually also smoke tobacco. it goes hand in hand. get it?..SMOKING.

so, it follows that the cancer is probably caused just as much by the tobacco as it is by the marijuana.

..going back to the studies. the main study that the pro-marijuana clan push for legalizing casual marijuana use is the one made by donald tashkin. http://www.dailysmoker.com/blog/top-anti-drug...

have you looked at a picture of the guy?..honestly, look at the guy... he looks like a marijuana smoker himself.

so tell me. would you believe anything a drug addict tells you? drug addicts will lie, steal, and cheat to get their next high. and they don't give a rat's ass about anything or anybody else.

Can you explain what you meant by "control it". You write nonsense then run from it, why is that? Because of the fragility of a Leftist's ego, anything that threatens it is intolerable and provokes rage.

actually, I'm so confident that marijuana is bad for you that I'm willing to let you users have it your way for a while.

the way I see it, good riddance.

when the shit hits the fan, it'll be easy to just take the money off you bums. it'll be easy money.

get it? while you smokers are drunk from the marijuana, I'll just club you over the head and take your money. it'll be fun. like a turkey shoot. can't wait for it to be legalized.

studies? there are many. but hey. why bother to list them when you drug addicts won't read them?

<quoted text>More BS and nonsense. Smoking anything is not good for your lungs. I should have the right to breath smoke free air. people smoking weed often breathe very deeply, and hold the smoke in their lungs for a length of time. This way of smoking allows the carcinogens to have prolonged contact with the cells of the lungs.
marijuana smoke acts as an irritant to the lung tissue, which can cause a cough and an increased production of mucus. The irritants may also prevent the lungs from clearing infectious agents, increasing the frequency of lung infections.
smoking weed drastically increases heart rate by 20 to 100 percent. This increase in heart rate can last up to three hours
Smoking weed also may cause the heart to beat irregularly. Research has shown a definite link between heart disease and smoking marijuana. A study by S Jayanthi and colleagues from the National Institutes of Health on May 13, 2008 in the journal "Molecular Psychiatry" demonstrated the first link between smoking marijuana and heart disease. The researchers tested blood from multiple marijuana users and showed that they had high levels of a protein that is a proven risk factor for heart disease.
Want safe pot, consume it, don't smoke it.
What you say is not confirmed by the statistical studies, when done seriously. yes, the tar of pot contains dangerous product. No, this is not reflected in the population of smokers, and this can be explained by the strong anti-cancer agent that is also contained in the marijuana smoke. yes, smoke in the lungs is irritant, but the average quantity of smoke for a consumer of pot, without tobacco, is ridiculously small compared to cigarette smoking. In case of tobacco, it is easy to take it orally, but the oral consumption of cannabis transformed THC into 11-hydroxy THC, by the liver, and this is 12X more potent, and the effect last a much longer time, so many people prefer to smoke it because they control better the effect, and there is no problem with the lungs that has ever been associated with MJ. It is of course not 100% safe, but smoking cannabis is still safer than taking aspirin, consuming too much fruits, or breathing in most large cities, not talking about consuming alcohol or tobacco. Then the difficulty to convince the youth to not mix cannabis and tobacco is made virtually impossible by the prohibition and demonization of cannabis. Cannabis remains much safer than many legal products, both as a medication for many diseases, and as a recreative relaxant for handling the modern stressing struggle.

I thought you might have something interesting to say....

I was wrong...

so youre straight?? and you are advocating a crime??

meanwhile?/ you call us a bunch of criminals??

WTF> you are major hypocrit.

get a clue....

the federal gvernment has all those drugs schedualed the same way for a reason.....and it has nothing to do with public health or saftey..

if it did? alcohol would be HIGHLY illegal.

and we all know how well that turned out....

about as well a 75 years of pot prohibition.

you say you cant wait for it to be legalized??

why is that?? when you are a major hater...??

it already has been legalized....

and you havnt "rolled" any stoners yet??

I postulate that you are a giant pussy who would never say a bad word to anyone for fear of being beat up.

I was referring to your earlier comment about others trying to tell you what was "good for you" for you, when it is actually you that is trying to control it for others.

I donít happen to use or am I interested in using this substance for myself. But I have no desire to try and control what others are allowed to do.

I have never heard an argument against it, that could not also be applied to things that are legal.

I donít see a point in having a law just for the sake of having the law.
