the host of ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" asked Perry his position on decriminalizing marijuana. Perry nodded when Kimmel suggested the governor may decriminalize pot in Texas by January 2015.

"We've kind of done that," Perry said. "You don't want to ruin a kid's life for having a joint."

Ann Coulter....

Right-wing mobs? Say it isn’t so, conservatives!

When I wrote a book about mobs and group-think a few years ago, I could honestly say that mob behavior existed exclusively on the left in America — unless you count Oakland Raiders tailgate parties, which I do not.

To my dismay, some of these mob characteristics can now be found in small pockets on the right.

For months and months, for example, I’ve been demanding facts — not shibboleths or epithets — from the anti-Mitch McConnell brigade.

Here are my facts:

(1) For more than a decade, Sen. Mitch McConnell has stood alone in fighting unconstitutional campaign finance laws, earning him the undying enmity of the New York Times.(The Times is probably the largest contributor to the Senate Conservatives Fund opposing McConnell.)

McConnell took on the entire MSM, as well as members of his own party, principally John McCain and President Bush, who incomprehensibly signed McCain-Feingold into law with the idle musing that the Supreme Court could strike down any unconstitutional parts.(It didn’t — until some of it was finally overturned in Citizens United.)

(2) As minority leader, McConnell managed to get every single Republican in the Senate to vote against Obamacare — even “Strange New Respect” Republicans like John McCain, Susan Collins and Lindsey Graham. No other Republican leader has ever accomplished anything like that.

(3) McConnell tricked Obama into accepting the only spending cuts to the federal government in more than half a century.

(4) On the most important issue — immigration — McConnell not only voted against Marco Rubio’s amnesty bill, but at the moment, he may be the only thing standing between us and a scheme to import 30 million new Democratic voters. As House Speaker John Boehner works feverishly behind the scenes to push amnesty through, McConnell recently announced that there would be no immigration bill in 2014 (thank almighty God).

There are breathless headlines all over the Internet claiming,“McConnell Supports Amnesty!” but when you click on them, the links don’t work and the claims don’t make sense.

Those are facts. Here’s the counter-argument from the anti-McConnell crowd: He’s a RINO! He’s an establishment Republican! He’s been a terrible leader! Mitch Lied, kids died!

Ladies and Gentlemen, there you have all the attributes of a mob: Slogans in lieu of logic and evidence, beliefs impenetrable by facts, emotional hatred of the “enemy” and the acceptance of wild contradictions. Isn’t Paul Ryan dreamy? Let’s run Ted Cruz for president! We love Reagan … But we hate McConnell for voting with Reagan!

Nothing good has ever been accomplished by a mob.

New Justice Department Policy Will Cut Federal Drug Sentences
Attorney General Eric Holder will announce a new policy on Thursday that may shorten sentences for federal drug offenders as part of his "Smart on Crime" initiative.
Holder is set to testify in front of the U.S. Sentencing Commission on Thursday and endorse changes to the commission's Drug Quantity Table. The changes would mean a two-level reduction in ranges of sentences for people convicted of federal drug crimes. For example, someone convicted of trafficking more than one kilogram of heroin, five kilograms of cocaine or 280 grams of crack would now trigger a Level 32 sentence -- 121 months to 151 months. If the Sentencing Commission passes the changes, it reduce that punishment to 97 months to 121 months.

a kernel truth can sometimes be found in the oddest places.
Mitt Romney was talking off the cuff to a supposedly off the record group of donors and muddled several data points together, ultimately telling the tale of the 47% who won’t vote for him for any reason. He was referencing the 47% who don’t pay taxes and interwove it with a 47% of locked in Obama support. The statement was a mess.
I didn’t think Mitt Romney would be as hurt by the statement as he was because I assumed Romney had misspoken in an off the cuff way. I assumed Romney would clarify that he knew many of those who have government assistance did not actually want the assistance, but needed it. I assumed he’d make the case that he’d help those people get off the government dole and back into work.
In other words, I assumed Romney believed what I believe — many of those people are good people who fell on hard times and are not of the same class of people who will vote for Barack Obama for free stuff. I was absolutely wrong. Romney not only believes completely what he said as he said it, he reinforced it with his post election analysis of his defeat blaming gifts to various classes of people. If that was true, as Newt Gingrich pointed out, Romney had plenty to gift to plenty strapped to the back of marching elephants.
Note to Mitt Romney: really, it’s you, not them. Seriously.

Has Paul Ryan apologized yet to the American people for his votes that took us from a balanced budget on the path to surpluses & paying down the debt to the worst recession in 80 years?
The worst recession in 80 years was caused by the Democrats' Marxist CRA program that collapsed our economy after two years (fuck you) oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, from whom we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse.

You still don't understand the definition of "deficit'. Let's go over that lecture again.

You have to be the most stupid person in the class. How many times do you need to be told the budget is not what the government spends. The amount the government spends is the amount the government spends. The budget is a lawful guide that can be changed by a subsequent appropriations.
How about you go to the chalkboard and write this a hundred times:

A deficit is spending more than revenue.

If you noticed, I defined "deficit" without even using the word "budget". I know using words as their definitions in the English language require is inconvenient to your lies. Get over it. Here, we speak English.

Now that you've been given this lesson again, why don't you post the defits during the Clinton era.

Confused you with Bush... Bush would rather have less than 5,000 killed and win than more than 30,000 killed and lose, dupe.

Now, where were we... oh, yeah.

You're running away again, just like you did when you arranged to get into the reserves when everyone else was getting drafted. And you even managed to get thrown out of the reserves.

Here's that post again so you can clarify your answer that you'd rather see over 30,000 Americans killed and lose than less than 5,000 killed and win.

So, your answer to the question is C) Do the exact same thing in the exact same place against the exact same enemy as the Soveits, and you're so stupid you expect to not have over 30,000 killed and ending up with the same outcome as the Soviets, right?

Makes sense. You're a treasonous fraud that slandered the Armed Forces with lies your entire life. You'd rather have over 30,000 Americans killed and lose than less than 5,000 killed and win.
You're a homo reservist that got thrown out, and joined those frauds pretending to be Vietnam veterans in the so-called "VVAW" that joined Kerry slandering American veterans with lies.

LONDON (Reuters)– Four of the biggest U.S. technology groups collectively hold an estimated $124 billion in U.S. Treasury debt, much of it offshore, earning them tax-free interest, the UK’s Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ) said on Thursday.

The finding means Apple Inc, Microsoft Corp, Google Inc and Cisco Systems Inc hold a large proportion of the $254.9 billion held in their foreign subsidiaries in U.S. Treasuries, according to securities filings reviewed by the London-based BIJ, a not-for-profit news organization.

Bringing the money home would trigger a tax bill, so the companies keep it offshore, partly to fund foreign expansion but also, executives say, to avoid a tax hit.
