Free speech includes the right to laugh or giggle. If not, it should, since there is a lot to derisively laugh about in DC these days.

During his confirmation hearing, Sessions was subjected to the indignity of someone laughing out loud when it was represented that he “would treat all Americans equally under the law.” And so here comes the heavy hand of justice….determined to lash out with it’s government might to teach Desiree Fairooz a lesson, and be an example to anyone else who might violate his sensitivities.

I always thought this dude was a weasely little prick, but this should confirm that to anyone who doubts this man’s microscopic facsimile of character. Like his reluctant co-conspirator, the *president, he can’t endure even the smallest sincere expression of doubt about his competency or criticism of his words and deeds.

Anyone who wasn’t petty and petulant would have blown this off for what it was, nothing to make a jerk out of yourself over. A few hundred years ago I suppose that a duel would have been in order; smashing a little bug with a government prosecutor seems to be today’s spineless substitute for regaining his honor. Pleeeeeze Jeffie………..have you no shame for abusing and degrading your office? Put on your big boy pants and call this off, or risk being further shamed when she goes to trial November 13.

Alberto,

And if they don't want the public (the people who employ them) to laugh in these hearings, they should not nominate a joke like Sessions for Attorney General.

Practically every candidate for any office belongs to a religious denomination of some sort. Most of the SC is catholic. A lot of people would view that as a positive, not a negative.

Franken once praised CAIR, and I paraphrase, for "promoting political engagement and protecting civil liberties". The FBI has investigated CAIR for its ties to known terrorist groups like Hamas.

So, based on this, Franken (and don't forget the Muslim Keith Ellison) must be a terrorist sympathizer and ISIS supporter. They should both be impeached immediately.

If you are going to tar and feather a catholic, then the same goes for everybody else.

It's stated in the constitution, the law of the commons is to be secular, ie. neutral, the same for all. If you need a defition for 'the commons' do your own homework.

I'm just using your own reasoning, and that of Franken. If you profess a religious affiliation, then obviously that is more important than your qualifications to hold office. Ellison, for example, is a professed muslim. He therefore must think that women are inferior, gays are to be thrown off of tall buildings, infidels killed, etc. Now I am sure that he said that he would put all that aside once elected (wink..wink). But Franken must think that this catholic must be different even though this particular candidate basically said the same thing.

No no RS...if the qualifications of a public official can be called into question because of a religious affiliation, then it must apply to all. Even democrats..sorry.

When democrat nominees come before these committees again (I guess the democrats might win the presidency again sometime in the future), I fully expect the republicans to question each and every one specifically about their religious beliefs and how it will affect their rulings and their service to the country.

By the way, why wasn't Hillary's membership in the Methodist church (basically anti-gay) an issue for democrats in the last election? Oh, never mind...she gets a pass because she is a democrat.

Even an editorial writer for the NYT takes issue with the questioning: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/11/opinion/the-dogma-of-dianne-feinstein.html

Excerpts:

The notion that Catholics are so beholden to Rome as to be incapable of rendering independent judgment in public office has a long, sordid history. It was a mainstay of 19th-century nativist propaganda, and it would dog John F. Kennedy in the following century. Senator Feinstein later deniedexhibiting anti-Catholic bias. But as with other forms of racial or religious animus, one needn’t always use an explicit epithet to arouse ugly emotions.

Worse, these accusations were based on a mangled understanding of Ms. Barrett’s work. In a 1998 essay that has been seized on by left-wing activists, Ms. Barrett and a co-author addressed how Catholic judges might deal with capital cases, given the church’s opposition to the death penalty in virtually all situations. The same dilemma confronts liberal Protestants and many Jews, the authors noted. It could even trouble an atheist judge whose conscience tells her that capital punishment is wrong.

Yes dirty coal, that oped was just slightly less muddled than your own thinking. Here's another view point from a pair of contributing NYT oped writers:

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/13/opinion/faith-law-and-dianne-feinstei...

It might be noted the writers are both legal scholars.

The crux of the issue is if Ms. Barret is actually willing to recuse herself in cases where the law of the necessarily secular commons goes directly opposite her moral convictions. Off the top I can think of 3 or 4 real biggies besides the death penalty that may present a problem for her to be sitting on the bench for.

I don't care what one of the 1,000 gods anyone wants to worship in their private life but those god or gods must be left at home when the black robe is put on. If Franken had really wanted to know if she knew who and what ADF was when she gave her lecture to that body he should have asked for a transcript of it (I'm sure one exists), it may prove quite enlightening.

Those "questions of conscience" are most likely there regardless of one's religious persuasion.

Have it your way, but then every nominee for every judgeship and every candidate for office needs to stand up and say what their religious views are.

I can only imagine the outrage if a muslim nominee for a federal office has to go through the same kind of questioning.

Fool every canidate for whatever office already stand on their religous affiliations. And if you bother to look you'll note almost to every man and woman everyone put to office is christain going back as far as you like. No agnostics, no atheists, no Islamics, no Hindu but in reality are only capitalist bastards parading as one out of about 1000 forms that CALL themselves good christain.

Mike pence and jeff sessions are good examples. Trumpkof would not have been elected without reactionary pence. Sessions wouldn't still be there (or ever gotten where he is) without his good old southern baptist (and racist) roots. So don't give us that religious purity bullshit, yeh I just imagine the up roar over an Islamic judge nomination and guess where it would come from.......your side of the aisle wouldn't even give them a hearing and then would vilify who ever nominated or stood for that person.

So piss off with your purity vs. the law argument. The law of the commons needs to be secular and that ideal of the law of the commons is almost a religion unto itself and separated from any deity one may hold personally.

Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now. Thus in France the emetic was once forbidden as a medicine, and the potato as an article of food. Government is just as fallible, too, when it fixes systems in physics. Galileo was sent to the Inquisition for affirming that the earth was a sphere; the government had declared it to be as flat as a trencher, and Galileo was obliged to abjure his error. ... Reason and experiment have been indulged, and error has fled before them. It is error alone which needs the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.

Pope Francis slams 'stupid' climate change deniers
Pontiff calls on politicians to take scientists' advice as he raises alarm over global warming after major storms.

Pope Francis On Climate Change Denial: 'Man Is Stupid'

Pope Francis warns "history will judge" climate change deniers
As Hurricane Irma, a tempest exacerbated by climate change, ravaged the Florida coast on Monday as a tropical storm, Pope Francis doubled down on his condemnations of those who choose to ignore the mounting evidence of the impacts of global warming.

Responding to questions from an Italian journalist on board his flight home from Colombia, Francis said that the halting response to climate change reminded him of a “phrase from the Old Testament — man is a fool, a stubborn man who will not see”: an apparent reference to Proverbs 12, a section of the Bible that condemns those who resist correction in matters of knowledge.

Later, he added in a more pointed jab at climate deniers: “Anyone who denies [climate change] should go to the scientists and ask them. They speak very clearly ... climate change is having an effect, and scientists are telling us which path to follow. And we have a responsibility — all of us. Everyone, great or small, has a moral responsibility ... we must take it seriously ... history will judge our decision.”

If the obstacles of bigotry
and priestcraft can be surmounted,
we may hope that common sense
will suffice to do everything else.

The United States is in no way founded upon the Christian religion
-- George Washington & John Adams, in a diplomatic message to Malta.

Seems Ms. Barrett,, on her past statement "such as in death penalty cases, where a judge might have to recuse herself" answers DiFe's question about separation. There needs to be oversight when all judges aren't so up front about recusing themselves. Including Barrett when cases aren't so clear cut. There are plenty of qualified people to fill the slot without having to wonder about religionists or atheists pushing the envelope for their own cause. Its not a Christian Country yet, Pence is drooling.

I never submitted the whole system of my opinions to the creed of any party of men whatever, in religion, in philosophy, in politics or in anything else, where I was capable of thinking for myself. Such an addiction is the last degradation of a free and moral agent. If I could not go to Heaven but with a party, I would not go there at all.

But Feinstein is the wrong person to toss the Dogma card around. Hers and Sessions Drug War Dogma is more over zealous or equal to the Fundies. Drug Worrier Cults receiving tax paid grants.

So two thieves are robbing the house and the cop lets them go because they blamed each other.

We should definitely build a wall... between church and state. Maybe between humans and government. Although its not the humans fault money is so addictive.

If the law of the commons is supposed to be secular, how come all candidates and nominees spend so much time talking about their religious views? Because it still carries weight with the majority of Amercans. Democrat Hillary has fallen all over herself lately trying to show people how religious she is. Obama did the same thing when he ran trying to convince everyone he wasn't really a muslim hiding in christianity clothing

Nice quote by the rascist Jefferson and Washington.

That people that make no bones about $'s being their god have co-opted parts of the population that claim to be christain puts to shame any claim of rightous reasoning on your part. So piss off with deciding my god or anyone elses god or lack of a god needs to be the same as your belief which means the commons has to be secular period. And the people that originally concieved this republic understood that very well, even though my mind they were just another sect of christains called Deists, they understood the laws of state (the commons) had to be neutral in all reguards. Get it? It's written as one of first things in the constitution.

And your problem is that you think there is an actual difference between politicians. What a joke. There is no difference between Hillary, for example, and Trump. They are both about the money. Obama will soon join them if he hasn't already. The democratic party is not the party it used to be. Its been hijacked and flown off to Cuba.

Actually, the first amendment is intended to protect religious liberty by keeping government out of it. The court, via several different cases over the years, has affirmed the principle of separation of church and state. It is not written specifically into the constitution.

If Sessions has "thin skin", then these university personnel must have "no skin". I do not understand why the democratic party is not condemning this activity.

https://www.wsj.com/amp/articles/higher-eds-latest-taboo-is-bourgeois-no...

excerpts:

"To the list of forbidden ideas on American college campuses, add “bourgeois norms”—hard work, self-discipline, marriage and respect for authority. Last month, two law professors published an op-ed in the Philadelphia Inquirer calling for a revival of the “cultural script” that prevailed in the 1950s and still does among affluent Americans: “Get married before you have children and strive to stay married for their sake. Get the education you need for gainful employment, work hard, and avoid idleness. . . . Eschew substance abuse and crime.” The weakening of these traditional norms has contributed to today’s low rates of workforce participation, lagging educational levels and widespread opioid abuse, the professors argued.

The op-ed triggered an immediate uproar at the University of Pennsylvania, where one of its authors, Amy Wax, teaches. The dean of the Penn law school, Ted Ruger, published an op-ed in the student newspaper noting the “contemporaneous occurrence” of the op-ed and a white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va., and suggesting that Ms. Wax’s views were “divisive, even noxious.” Half of Ms. Wax’s law-faculty colleagues signed an open letter denouncing her piece and calling on students to report any “bias or stereotype” they encounter “at Penn Law ” (e.g., in Ms. Wax’s classroom). Student and alumni petitions poured forth accusing Ms. Wax of white supremacy, misogyny and homophobia and demanding that she be banned from teaching first-year law classes."

And these professors and students think they are being taken seriously. That's right...stay married, don't have children out of wedlock, get an education, and stay away from drugs and crime is just bigoted advice. The left, and the democratic party, have gone completely off the rails in this country. And they still cannot figure out why they keep losing elections.

How can you tell insanity from normal GOPer spewtums? If insanity is normal, then sanity is their enemy. That's about all I can make sense of in his posts. Or he's a label maker tool regardless whats in the package.

hard work, self-discipline, marriage and respect for authority.

Hard work dodging taxes with offshore accounts and legislated deadbeat protection laws? Outsource the factory and then call the workers lazy? Whatever you do to the least you do to him dude. Hard work buying Governorships for your kids? Trump hard work stealing from the poor and giving to the rich? When Caucasian gopers are statistically the poorest of the Americans I think its safe to say ignorance is bliss. Self deprecating and I can see why you think hard work is a virtue. So blocking a living wage is advocated by the church? So they can be proud of their 3 jobs and impress a nitwit with a title. Same obedients agreeing with a right to work law over a Co-op run by the workers who run the factories anyway. Blackmail, sorry not PC. Coersion, a common threat to keep wages down. MalWart has hard workers they won't give more than 39 hours to avoid health insurance and workman's comp or over time. So we the people have to pay for it instead of better schools. Dumbing down America protesting the protesters protesting for the poor which make up most of the protester protesters. You need a doobie dude.

Self discipline is a crock of very sour kraut. Following orders blindly is not self discipline. Self discipline is fending for yourself because the cops will only make things worse. Taking away basic necessities for a life, takes self discipline to survive. And is unConstitutional since they are a pre-requsite of Life, as it is to Liberty, as it is to any Pursuit of Happiness. Why we declared Independence.

Its Prohibition that puts the harm in drug doing and cannabis that hasn't harmed anyone when used properly. Same hard drugs dispensed by drug stores and prescribed by doctors doing no harm outside of human error by patients. Authoritah prescribed banning sterile syringes spreading diseases. Jails ruining lives. Legislation's ruining more lives. 200+ DEA offices around the globe eating tax dollars to spread more hysteria so murdering thugs like Duterte in the Philippines can justify genocide. Naturally in the name of god that even the Pope criticized as he did the Denialists.

Unless we're just Mud People and Spare Ribs, born fully growd. Life requires basics you people fantasize out of the discussion. Pitiful how gutless obedient's have become. Like I said. At least 12,000 years supplementing the ECS with the Christian god's very own creation...BANNED. Larger fear centers, more obedient, easier to manipulate, just do what you're told. Except with no checks and balances or "de-regulation". The Institutions have rusted into the richest enter and write the laws or bottom-lines. So maintaining obedience to bad laws is self destructive and over reliance on people telling you what's up. Has worn away your ability to judge what is right and what is wrong. Therefore you cling to a nonexistent past and leave out the truth to feel better about exploiting Americans.

Marriage is abnormal in nature or in the religionist gods creations. It's less reliable for tracing blood lines than DNA. What your god has created, you kill, what your god has buried, you dig, drill or flush out. For products to sell. Profits are the New Mother of Invention while you write off Americans as slothful and deserving. What they reap is from what they have sown. But it isn't, its sown by corporations to run down and dumb down the middle class back to a have/have nots fascism. 7 billion people and half are hungry and make up the 5 billion in congregational religions. For centuries, and you believe they really give a rats ass? Opiate of the Masses. The Neocon bible sayeth nukes will rid the need of alternatives for fossil fools. If 300 million survive, there is no shortage. Sick people contribute to the economy more than well people who don't buy drugs to treat symptoms. The IRS collects more from $35k/yr cage rental for prisoners than minimum wage earners contribute. More capital to spend. War creates construction jobs re-building bombed out hospitals and if your bottom line and gossip continues unchecked. It won't be a theory.

The 7 Corporal Works of Mercy With Cannabis

Humans kill for profit, you value more than life. For two people to stay together for the kids is the biggest load of crap east of Jerusalem. Same old shit that kept spousal rape legal until the 1980s and the ritual that lets cops walk by domestic violence as if it was "normal".. Kids living with parents who despise each other is not the answer. Stigmatizing kids in single parent families isn't the answer either. You want to go back to bastardizing kids? Teaching like DARE inculcations to tease and taunt the kids who are different. The result of churches making policy behind closed doors. Unless they're gay, then marriage is taboo. I really don't know why gays took up so much time pushing for it.

Every city corner has a drug and booze store, every tv show has a new drug commercial with most of the time spent listing side effects. so don't do drugs is very hypocritical. Get a good education? Teaching where the US sits next to God on his thrown and is as infallible. Killing and deforming millions after they surrender is the moral thing to do. As much as Beauregards profit prisons. Or the latest GOP sicko act for the upteenth time trying to kill anything Obama. Even if citizens go without health care. Be proud when the seniors die on the streets.

Drug Worriers preferred methods of treatment…

The flag jerking self imposed moralists putting sick Veterans in prison for relieving their PTSD with pot. Aborting babies with pesticides and the other modern ways. Like gutting OSHA and putting oil company puppets in the EPA. Like I said, the only thing that bothers GOPers is off white races becoming a majority. Gutting the A.C.A. over implementing single payer Universal Care will give more incentive to profit treating the victims and remove some of the over population. So Euro trash can continue the good ole boy system. All in the name of god no less.

Your stale old ways are proven hazardous to the health of Americans. You have the same agenda as any common terrorist. Pushing lies with fake experts writing policy and getting the most time on air.To pass BS that puts more Americans behind bars than murder, rape and child molestation. When you adapt the ability to tell right from wrong you may give it another try. Until then you're an embarrassment to any red blooded American. Blaming the poor and sucking up to the rich in the name of god tinkling down upon the peasants no less.

Out of wedlock children is a term from the 50s I thought we grew out of. Maybe Zore homes for unwed mothers? Or Newt's child labor orphanages. Like white trash trailer park foster care @ $1000./month plus farming kids into side jobs. In the name of the kids safety naturally. Pushing marriage when the church won't even let the Priests marry? Yet these are the ones giving advise on marriage? Religionists rehabs by-passing state regulations devised for the safety of the Americans forced into the rehab system. Find Jesus and find the cure to addiction or flunk and go directly to jail. A little harder for Jewish and Muslum kids.

Yes brain on vacation,, the 1st amendment prevents the government from declaring the United States a Christian Nation. So why is that so hard for GOPers to understand? Your bassackwardness lets Preachers die in front of kids, from kissing Rattlesnakes. Most states outlawed. Same place with the highest addictions, youngest age child birth and marriages, most unemployment and a life expectancy lower than Iran. Shooting doctors in church in the name of Jesus is justified and taught to kids that it is justified. Then wonder why they take daddies military weapon of mass destruction hawked by the NRA to school to shoot heathen kids.

But Mr Peabody's coal trains left full as his pockets cashing in on the blood of the workers. Who were given morphine in case of cave ins with no chance of rescue. Miners Lullaby.

While little Napoleon Beauregard Sessions whines about it being a gateway. To burlap or canvas? Nutrition, alternative to cotton, steel, trees, crude oil plastic, polyfiber clothing or chemically laden cotton in the fields or on the racks, yes. Feinstein agrees with Prohibitches while Hatch is pushing for Ganja. Go figure, he actually met someone using it and low and behold them damn Bohemians were right all along.

God is an Atheist don't ya know? He respects no religion and neither does the USA. He demands no other gods before him so why don't you listen? Your Moneygod Geeeeeeezus is a figment of Neocon imaginations. Of the over 200 Christian cults there are over 200 different gods. I find it makes more sense to list it all as politics and science fiction and not take it too seriously.

I know Christians need someone to blame when they kill their babies refusing medication god told them to heal naturally. Lie as a justifiable means to an end. Blame god for pesticides and frankenfud. Just like blaming god for the latest hurricanes or opiod over doses. They used to blame god for boiler explosions until they discovered hard water and oxygen was the problem. Cop outs are easier if you have no integrity. Like these excerpts reading memos...

No medical schools have a department of endocannabinoid science or an ECS director.
None of them taught the endocannabinoid science as an organized course. Only 13% of the medical schools surveyed mention the endocannabinoid science to our future doctors

A survey found that 66.7% of medical school curriculum deans said that their graduates were not at all prepared to prescribe medical marijuana, and 84.9% of residents and fellows say they received no education in medical school or residency on medical marijuana.

Many think Saul to Paul was a misogynist, starting the practice of second class citizenship for women. Too much value in treating sinners than preventing them or curing them. Big Cop Out and CYA to claim camouflaging the dead with the blood of christ to get past St Peter. Who stands outside the Gates because Heaven bans certain Denialists from the Sin Free Zone. So Heaven is made up of God, Jesus and a bunch of people God can't see or even find strange they are dripping blood all over the streets of gold.

Obviously can't trust the poor to not dig some up and leave potholes. None of it falls within the boundaries of physics, unless you're really stoned. The sales pitches or Commercials in the bible are funny. Last Supper for Jesus was with Vampires and Cannibals or maybe Zombies. Makes me think of Hee Haw asking Grand Pa " What's for Supper" Geeeeeezuz. "Whatcha got to drink? Say What? His flesh and blood is on the menu? Fishers of Men? I can see why the PC Censorship Unit who wants Huckleberry Finn banned for the "N" word are probably going apeshit over the Gore and Glory the "Church" bible created.

The answers are in subatomic particles between the atoms sparked by emotions. Atoms and Molecules make products for profits. Quirtz ties human Neurology to a network of subatomic vibes to potentially explain miracles and prayers. The church is the Opiate of the Masses because the masses need opiated to avoid thinking or running amuck.

Post #23 has to the be one of the dumbest diatribes/commentaries I have read on any of the Hartmann forums, and that goes back several years now.

As the old saying goes..."me doth think you protest too much".

Why don't you take your own advice? Or better yet, encourage your children to take your advice. That's right..tell them to forget about getting married. And if they are already married, tell them to get divorced today. After all, you don't want the love of your life messing things up for you. Split up whatever assets they may have, and of course someone needs to pay alimony to the other. But that's no problem.

If you have an unwed daughter, tell her to have a few kids. But don't get married. According to you, that's abnormal. You must not think that children need a father even though almost every study shows that children of one parents families tend to have way more problems and trouble in school. And forget about your daughter going to college, or even trade school. They obviously won't have time for that kind of stupid nonsense. The government and the taxpayers can help support them.

Oh wait, I forgot. Tell her to grow hemp. Yeah, that's the ticket.

If she needs a little extra money until the hemp starts selling, just shoplift a few goods from the local 7-11. If they get caught, according to you, its no big deal. So you got a criminal record now? Who cares?

Great advice DdC. Let us all know how it's work out for your children.

Dirty coal, here's a couple of serious questions for you. First of all how far back can you remember? Last week? Last month? Yesterday?

Second, have you ever been curious about anything in your life?

Thirdly, and I know this probably goes beyond your attention span but, what do you know of my or DdC's life? Nothing I would venture, so now for the question. Why step into that? It's got nothing to do with this thread.

Now for a little advice, if you want to talk about what happened to the DNC or Gop start your own blog and thread. Who knows maybe it'll garner all kinds of replies.

http://i50.tinypic.com/2822gif.jpg

Why don't you take your own advice?

Advice? I simply reported an observation. Take it or Leave it. Even if people use others advice, they are still responsible for carrying out the advice. Again, I'm not against people getting married as irrelivent as I think it is. I'm against abusing people who choose not too.

Or better yet, encourage your children to take your advice. That's right..tell them to forget about getting married. And if they are already married, tell them to get divorced today.

They are individual Americans and make their own choices even though I never said not to marry. I said not to stigmatize those choosing to leave abusive situations that is over your head or spine. Many cultures lived without the christians mumbo jumbo magic spell cast by a priest or preacher or notary. It is beyond the parameters of physics. Its a piece of paper and a blood test. It has never stopped cheating or as stated determine blood lines. The only reason you hide behind marriage is due to save punks rights in beating women. Its the assholes stigmatizing single parents that makes it rough on them. Not being single. Children are brought up by single parents do well and get love not obtained by drunken macho bums keeping wives chained to the marriage. So again, you defend anything goes just so people share last names? Like I said no understanding of right or wrong. Just see if they have papers.

After all, you don't want the love of your life messing things up for you.

Love and Hate are primal emotions used for the preservation of the species in temporary limited applications. To attract a mate for procreation and then its over. Hate prepares for fight or flight. Commercialism uses the emotions to sell products as writers used them to sell books. Making them more in the spotlight than intended. Normal is within the parameters of Love and Hate. I trusted my wife and I trusted her before marriage. I understood I didn't own her, she was not my property even if you think the church sanctions women as possessions.

Split up whatever assets they may have, and of course someone needs to pay alimony to the other. But that's no problem.

All stemming from the act of marriage. Like Prohibition being the cause of harm in doing drugs or harm where there is none in smoking Ganja. Why would anyone object to paying child support or even alimony if a woman has been chained to the stove for decades and sacrificed her opportunity to bring home the bacon. Deadbeats show they should never be granted a marriage license since they choose to not care for the kids after the separation. Marriage should cost as much as a divorce and divorce should be free. Then people would prepare for it and have access to escape. If you need a legal paper that doesn't work anyway, then you can't be trusted as a parent and your kids will grow up with your dysfunction.

If you have an unwed daughter, tell her to have a few kids.

Again I trust my kids to make choices best for them and their kids. If you think a magic paper is going to change immature boys from their responsibility to care for the family. Your an idiot. No magic and immature boys should not be married. Or 12 year old girls in West Virginia. Marriage was a good ole boy male dominate society since Genesis. That is its only importance. Indians tribes, hippie communes like The Farm have healthy smart kids running around. Where libraries of abuse can be shown in married situations. Not that its all bad. Its just all designed as the male being head of household instead of equal bases protected by the Constitution. You put your church rules above your country.

But don't get married. According to you, that's abnormal.

According to Nature its abnormal. It was a fix for a problem thousands of years ago and has become a tool of misogynists. Its more likely boys will grow up believing they are superior and are treated as such, even as kids. What they play with or dress in or their own sexuality is much determined by their parents. In a Free Society in which we supposedly live. Although its more of a lesser evil than free. Same with marriage, it is no guarantee of success and even success is defined by the individual. You believe its how large your portfolio and others feel its how safe and happy their family is. Marriage is legal and no one chastises married people so don't chastise unmarried is all I'm saying.

You must not think that children need a father even though almost every study shows that children of one parents families tend to have way more problems and trouble in school.

All children have a father, including Jesus. That is Biology not by religion. You confuse the two methinks. An abusive male in the house teaches boy kids to be abusive. So a single parent would be better. Legal documents like licenses stifle women from their rights and ability to live a free life of their own. It molds children into the same mold that continues like racism, generation ater generation. It is taught. So get married if you are too insecure to repel the ignorant critiques. I don't care if it is your choice. I only object when the church tries to make it mandatory or denegrates people making a different choice.

And forget about your daughter going to college, or even trade school.

Are you really that gullible or just vested ignorance? A piece of paper sealed by a notary or priest has no bearing on IQ or cost of an education. The church has tried to keep women from educations since we spoke with cockney accents. Are you for real? Look at the other religions slavery of women. The difference is our Constitution prevents what the church would love to have the ability to do. Single women go to college all the time in the US and civilized nations. Join the 20th century, oh excuse me, its the 21st. You seem more comfortable if it was the 19th. Glad to know all women have to do for success is marry. You mean marry a rich dude don't you? Properly and ladylike to catch her man? Then if he agrees she can try to get into college? Until the kids. Do you even buy shoes for women in your family?

They obviously won't have time for that kind of stupid nonsense.

Obvious in your rose clouded glasses.

The government and the taxpayers can help support them.

Or a job if bigots get over the fact she is a woman. You mean like women working at MalWarts not receiving benefits for her family so tax payers make it up?

Oh wait, I forgot. Tell her to grow hemp. Yeah, that's the ticket.

Many are getting into the business of Ganja, Higher percentage than jobs nationwide. Its still nonsense that women need any help from men, except this dysfunction junction we live in is built for men. So taking down barriers is still necessary. In sports especially. The Military is farther ahead than the MLB or NBA. They do have one referee.

If she needs a little extra money until the hemp starts selling, just shoplift a few goods from the local 7-11.

So naturally the boy child doesn't have any worries? His pecker will open doors to college, riches and money until the Hemp crop is harvested. Thats silly bigotry. Women are in danger from men like you, not from being single parents.

If they get caught, according to you, its no big deal. So you got a criminal record now? Who cares?

You really need to smoke a joint and calm your ass down. Stop pinning your fabrications on me. Bring references for your accusations. You make shit up and then reference it. Your little bigoted scenario is avoidable and women are in the work place and college and as corporation heads. Those who remain slaves for the bible or menfolk are giving up their Constitutional rights. Its hard to make people safe if they choose to act dangerously. Or free if they choose staying slaves. Maybe you prefer jails to keep women when they are not in the bedroom or kitchen.

Great advice DdC. Let us all know how it's work out for your children.

It is in your head, not my life. My advise is free for the taking or passing it up. My kids are not part of your story so leave them out of it, they're fine btw.

But how many got decent jobs by being single mothers with no education, drug and crime history? The answer of course is very few. Heck, how many men have decent jobs with no education, single parents, and a crime history?

You are the one, and your buddy RS, who deny common sense.

Your opinion has no more cred than before, so your op is still unsubstantiated and moot. You make silly claims based on affects of bigoted policy and give it to totally unrelated people. Keep it simple stupid. I'm sure you've heard that one. One topic at a time. Drugs or education or single women are three issues you lump toether as if they were a whole entity. Just replace Coalage3 with the word single women and you get the same results. Although having a penis will get you through more bigots doors regardless of your condition. That is what is wrong. If you're not qualified and get the job due to daddy or gender then the business is one I'd boycott because they must be shoddy work and products from such shoddy thinking.

Of course, women are in the workplace..duh!!!

Duh my ass. That wasn't easy to get them there, and it still has resistance from kooks like you. Of coarse my ass. Women are still paid less and don't get jobs males apply for regardless of experience or knowledge. Again you make false statements and then reference them as fact. You live in denial because you are a male and are afraid of women in the work place. I simply corrected your bigotry casting single women as stupid and in need of a man.

But how many got decent jobs by being single mothers with no education, drug and crime history?

Again you bring baggage that applies both ways. How many married women without education, on drugs with a criminal history get decent jobs? Or their hubbies for that matter. On their own merit in spite of obstacles by the church and other bigots, they get good jobs.

The answer of course is very few.

The answer is unattainable with your bias questioning. You can apply the same scenario to anyone, any age and any sex. More incompetence from nepotism than women. More business and political policy doing harm to Americans from ignorance with a key to the door given by a rich parent. Like your mentor drumpf starting life with only a million dollars from his father. Real hard worker, did it on his own. His daughter is in the WH due to his nepotism, not because she's married. Same with junior bush and jeb.

Heck, how many men have decent jobs with no education, single parents, and a crime history?

You make my point so why are you so flustered? Its the stigma, lack of education and crime history keeping them from a job. Marital status has nothing to do with it. Yes it is harder for women to get educations due to your bigotry. If women or men can't handle their booze or drugs then they aren't qualified for the job. Again nothing to do with skin color or gender or marital status. You're like the bigot lynching blacks and claiming it was good for society because blacks have a hard time getting work or staying clean or not committing crimes? So childish, I assume your parents were bigots too. Heck, how many men have decent jobs with no education, married parents, and a crime history?

Your responses are nonsensical.

Again your opinion has no meaning. Save your energy. Bigotry is nonsensical and anything I post is referenced or just ask and I'll enlighten you if its remotely possible, at least I'll try. But I ain't Rayguns soothsayer so you have to ask what it is you don't understand.

The problem is that the democratic party regressed. They used to be the grown-up party, but not any longer.

Your opinion, and we know what that entails. I'm not a democrat or republican or green or libertarian. I'm an American. As for regressing, the GOPers are again trying to cut health care for millions of Americans like pouting bigots against the black guys policy. Or lie like dogs against the benefits of Ganja or the alternative to fossil fools with Hemp. Bring it on bubba, people think you're an idiot but like the funny responses. You are a good poster boy for highlighting bigotry. A learning tool, a teachable moment. Keep em coming.

Cannabinoid Deficiency May Explain a Variety of Health Conditions

Cannabis Could Help Treat Cannabinoid Deficiency
The list of conditions tied to cannabis is wide-ranging and steadily growing. Whether cannabinoids are providing relief from migraines, fibromyalgia, or irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), the mechanism involved is largely the same; success is often attributed to activation of the body’s cannabinoid receptors.

Deficient cannabinoid levels may be the underlying cause of numerous conditions alleviated by cannabis.”– Ethan Russo

In 2004, however, Dr. Russo proposed the idea of clinical endocannabinoid deficiency (CECD) in a study published in Neuro endocrinology letters. He suggested that deficient cannabinoid levels may be the underlying cause of numerous conditions alleviated by cannabis.

Conservatives Have Larger 'Fear Centers' in Their Brains
Liberals have more gray matter in a part of the brain associated with understanding complexity, while the conservative brain is bigger in the section related to processing fear, said the study on Thursday in Current Biology.

At the same time, conservatives' brains were also found to have a smaller anterior cingulate -- the part of the brain responsible for courage and optimism.

Authoritarians and the Drug War by Pete Guither

http://forums.hannity.com/ new link

One of the clearly authoritarian) posters had brought up, in opposition to marijuana, an early study by Dr. Tashkin that showed potential for precancerous links to marijuana

Our folks countered with Tashkin’s later comprehensive study that conclusively showed no link between even heavy marijuana use and lung cancer. How did the authoritarian respond? Carefully analyze the evidence? Look for more studies? No. Here was his reaction:

This is exactly why all funding for research should be stopped immediately. The Universities and Colleges of America are the enemy in the war on drugs. They harbor druggies, they employ druggies and they are the epitome of the drug culture. […]
Marijuana should not be studied. There’s been too much study. It’s just time to condemn the Demon Weed for all eternity as well as all who partook of the Demon Weed. To HELL WITH THEM ALL. I hate them, I hate their misdeeds, I hate all they stand for and I don’t want them studied, I want them prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and made to pay for their crimes.

You never did answer if you took your own advice. My guess is that you did not.

Everyone knows that most people will generally do better in life if they are happily married, do not have children out of wedlock (and the children will do better as well), get some type of advanced education (even if it is trade school or community college), and stay out of trouble. Now who can argue with that? Wait, let me rephrase that question....if you have a brain, how can you argue with that? All available statistics support this overwhelmingly. Of course there are exceptions to every situation. We all know single parents who manage to thrive and raise their children despite the obstacles.

But yet, there is a group of mainly leftist academics that somehow think that promoting that type of agenda is bigoted and racist. These people must want their brethren to not succeed, to stay poor, to not contribute to our society, and to not be happy. The only support they seem to offer is that the Man is keeping them down. There is no other rational explanation. And good people on the left, who supposedly have the best interests of the lower class in mind, just accept this academic stupidity and go on promoting the very things that keep these people in dire situations. Its the classic definition of insanity.

Plus they get a free homegrown remedy even if GOPers cut off Americans from Big Pharma with Drumpfcare. Offshore tax dodging helps the poor? Cutting Medicaid and Medicare and killing Social Security is helping the poor? Putting the poor in profit prisons? Or keeping them out of college bastardizing the HEA? What are you blabbering about?

Sobbing over losing your right to burn crosses or charge poll tax? Back to Vietnamscam? Pre civil rights? You must be completely paranoid over Free Speech and people telling it like it is. Especially when women expose GOPer cowardice in public when they try to defend staying with the marriage for the sake of the kids. As long as the kids bruises are hidden eh? You probably defend corporal punishment for kids. Learn them youngins up right.

The left/progressives/liberals have gone completely off the rails. And the American people are suffering as a result.

And we can fix it as soon as you figure out what IT is and stop blindly blaming and shaming peaceful people.

What has happened to the democratic party in this country?

Learn to read or lay it on us. either case your opinion and lack of references to what the hell you're crying about makes all you post null and void. You remind me of just another boring child without a clue. Seeking revenge on the poor and women who dare to ask for equal rights. Pity when Americans bitch about freedom and whine about rights of those less fortunate in the name of the church or flag. You wonder why people think the church is a corporate whore the same as Exxon?

Try to slow down and state your grievances, not just whine and make false accusations. Substance boy, not just they did it. Say who they are. Not just liberals, the acts you claim they do. Unless you just like to show your momma how you know how to type, its worthless.

Besides his attention span doesn't go beyond 3 sentences at a time at most if you don't make it too complex. So DdC you lost him after hello hello. Add that to a memory that maybe goes back to yesterday makes tedious work for those that try to educate.

A man is likely to mind his own business when it is worth minding. When it is not, he takes his mind off his own meaningless affairs by minding other people's business.
-- Eric Hoffer, The True Believer

I don't understand why people don't stand up for their cause. Unless they know they are lies, harm people or are Unconstitutional. I know I get a lot of opposition to Ganja. Even Hemp was opposed until products started appearing online to prove it was what we said. I don't know anyone advocating crack. If Ganja did harm people I wouldn't support it. I know it doesn't because I and those I have known to use it found it not harmful. Anything can be done stupidly and do harm and that is solved with education on proper use.

NOT prohibiting free speech like Feinstein and Hatch tried numerous times. Or banning test kits like Biden's RAVE Ax or the Nixon multi-trillion dollar boondoggle, Controlled Substance Act. Outlawing sterile syringes takes a second to sink in. During an AIDs epidemic. Raygun stimulating the economy mass producing the christian name "Fag Disease" as a way of bringing in more Big Pharma customers? Doesn't that apply to the dueling banjo Deliverence folk? And heterosexuals or the religionist's gathering in closets. Following blindly without question. Obedient and ashamed of their own religion and values or what's left of any ethics and integrity. Ralph Reed exposes the fake self appointed sadomoralists bragging about political wins.

I want to be invisible. I do guerrilla warfare.
I paint my face and travel at night.
You don't know it's over until you're in a body bag."
--Ralph Reed, Norfolk Virginian-Pilot, 11/9/91

Ends justify means, can't legislate his version of morality by losing the election. Bringing back what never was outside of the delusions of fed up citizens grasping anything to believe in. Hate is a good motivator and privatizing schools inculcates at a cost savings. A Scientologist DARE Class mindfucking kids into future zombie soldiers. At the end of the day its serving their Money God geeeeeeezus. Who doesn't trickle down either.

Neocon Enterprises Fracking water to death or offshore drilling and toxic chemical storage. Or worse, 50 years of stashing nuclear spent rods as many places as over filled garbage dumps. If he wants the old Dixiekrat Sessions or Strom Thurman ways of tormenting blacks and stealing civil rights. Run down schools and pollution making them sick. He should say what it is, instead of blaming what it has become. More civilized. The difference in standing up for something is what exactly does it entail. Anyone can spread gossip and reefer madness but when reality is finally available online. Its a short argument. Too many real life examples and from countries not chained to the DEA garble.

"Another weapon I discovered early
was the power of the printed word to sway souls to me.
The newspaper was soon my gun, my flag -
a thing with a soul that could mirror my own."
~ Benito Mussolini

He has nothing to stand on, and even less to entice people to bring back his old days of glory, Civil War re-enactments where the Grey wins. Hiring liberal artist to make statues of treasonous mass murdering terrorist as King George saw our Founding Fathers. Jerking flags of traitors. Still made in china with Iraqi and Iranian crude oil. First he buys bullets to shoot at American soldiers and then buys plutonium rods for Irans nukes. Wonder if the GOP is funding North Korea?

Need a war to get back evidence like Sadamn the Bush CIA Op had. Or Noreaga's retrieval, killing 111 Panamanians not many read about. Iran Contra Killing Kommies and Kolaterally damaged kids. Osama bin Laden was buddy buddy getting $millions and free scuds when the Mujahideen were fighting Ruskies. Its difficult to tell exactly how dumbed down the people are. When they can't help themselves from admitting their crimes. A proud accomplishment they don't think is fair to keep censored. No one seems to understand, especially the media.

‘Sarah, if the American people ever find out what we have done, they would chase us down the street and lynch us.’ That is a famous 1992 quote by George Herbert Walker Bush to Sarah McLendon, a Texas journalist who Bush had known for years.

He seems afraid people will see what he is made of if he just spits it out. That he wants it back to when the forefathers owned slaves. My idea on the Civil War is that the rednecks and slaves should have been shipped to Africa. Then the rednecks made as slaves to the X-slaves for 500 years or so. That would be Justice. And satisfy the religionists, being an Eye for an Eye.

Now all we can do is treat them as insignificant sheep blindly following domestic terrorist'. The noise they spew doesn't even make it onto Fox. Probably why they keep blaming "Liberals" to get a spot on Handitty. Cowardly racists, bible thumping liberal phobic Delusionists, but is there any other kind? Defined by their legacy of shooting doctors in church or blowing up clinics full of pregnant women. Lynching blacks and shooting civil rights workers. Clubbing hippie hitch hikers and bikers and stabbing Gays. Blowing up Federal Buildings with fertilizer or molesting children they hid behind at Waco and Ruby ridge.

More proof they're full tilt boogie wingnuts. They were both shooting the same FBI that they sided with against Leonard Peltier at Wounded Knee or the 100 or so agents pumping bullets into Tom and Rollie at Rainbow Farm. GOPerverts Wilson and Lungren torturing Peter McWilliams to death after the first pot laws were voted in by the citizens.

Or Al Bundy defending his right to pillage land for himself instead of renting it for pennies. His militia conquered a bird sanctuary. Many living in bunkers waiting for Uncle Sam to take their guns from their stiff dead fingers. To be clear, they want the right to shoot cops with warrants busting down their doors as they praise the cops and busting down black grandmothers doors and firing 35 rounds into her. Or a young mother holding her baby getting shot. As long as they mention drugs the warrants get rubber stamps. The cops get a box of free lies in court and rarely if ever charged.

While 2 million homeless can't find a place to sleep or affordable housing. Florida outlawing solar panels during an outage. The latest attempt to steal health care, guts more than the previous bigoted attempts to gut it. Common sense?

Flushing out the undercover "Democrats" voting for GOP Hate Bills. Clinton's Drug War arrested more than Bush, Reagan and Nixon. Totally upended the Higher Education Act from assisting kids in the inner cities and rural areas with tuition assistance. He changed to preventing them from assistance or Pell Grants for LIFE. Forfeitures, unequal sentencing. 3 to 1 ratio of Blacks and Latino's to White Caucasians serving time.

http://endingcannabisprohibition.yuku.com/sreply/297

* "The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people," former Nixon domestic policy chief John Ehrlichman told Harper's writer Dan Baum

"You understand what I'm saying? We knew we couldn't make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin. And then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities," Ehrlichman said. "We could arrest their leaders. raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did."

* Ehrlichman's comment is the first time the war on drugs has been plainly characterized as a political assault designed to help Nixon win, and keep, the White House

The NRA's paid for Mandatory Minimum sentencing or 3 Strikes laws. Removing the poor from sight, into a cage for profits. Urine testing conveniently weeding out the darkies and nonconformist political views in the work place.

Plea bargain rehabilitation/re-education Asylums or Profit Prisons, a favorite of Beauregard Sessions 3. New and improved with MAXimum CAPacity contracts guaranteeing pay for empty beds. Making the incentive to not loose tax dollars by filling the beds.

More tax produced and more money to circulate paying $35,000-$50,000 a head. Compared with minimum wage earners, under the table or unemployed, even the disabled have more GOPer value in a cage. Sickening how they measure a life's "value".

Outside of human experiments by Hitler I can't think of much more dysfunctional. Maybe arresting tens of millions of sick people for pot. These murderers are who he wants to protect with a marriage license. Naturally for the sake of the kids.

"...somebody has to take governments' place,
and business seems to me to be a logical entity to do it."

"If a ruler hearken to lies,
all his servants are wicked."

His entire package consists of various forms of hate, bigotry and stupidity. Even the most isolated, xenophobic, greed stricken goper is losing ground on it being accepted. Just a complete waste of their time for what has not trickled down since rayguns voodoo exxonomics promised.

Keeps them the poorest group in the country. Fighting for killing benefits to their own families. The ones they use as shields to put in front to protect them from cannonballs , . . Fighting to gut medicare so they have to pay out of pocket. Or touch the TV and have Pat Robertson's Fortune 700 Clubber heal them. Kill the EPA so their kids drink mucky water and breath polluted air. I can't seem to find that passage in scripture. Oh...

But Rabshakeh said, Hath my master sent me to thy master and to thee to speak these words? hath he not sent me to the men that sit upon the wall, that they may eat their own dung, and drink their own piss with you?
~ Isaiah 36:12

All so corporations can save bucks not worrying about it. Protesting paying living wages for their own families to join the middle class. Protest Ganja so they become addicted to Big Pharma opiods. My question is why do they want to bring harm on themselves and then get a bill for it? Or maybe why do Progressives give a shit what harm they do to themselves?

Their hate for "liberals" who apparently are the ones who left the Klan and not just those who joined Wallace and then when he was dismissed with bullets. Nixon gopers. The hate is so great they sacrifice their own kids from GizMO frankenfud to pesticide poisons. To top that they do it all in the name of family values. Like a family picnic burning Beatles records tacked onto a Cross.

Oh well, its not his job to reason why.
Just follow orders and do or die.

I'm coming to the conclusion,
he's just a troll working for piecemeal wages.

Organic Hemp Protein
Hemp contains high-quality plant protein with branched-chain amino acids that are vital for good health. It also has all nine essential amino acids, with the bonus of good-for-you essential fatty acids (2g per serving). Our hemp protein powders contain 66% edestin (a bioactive globulin protein that's easy to digest) — more than any other plant!

Organic Cold-Pressed Hemp Oil
Our delicious organic hemp oil is cold-pressed and unrefined. Just like hemp seed, the oil contains the ideal 3:1 omega-6 to omega-3 ratio. Unlike flax, hemp has valuable Super Omega-3 (SDA) and Super Omega-6 (GLA), which can help the body metabolize fat.

Why don't both of you just admit what is obvious to most...if you want to have a better chance at succeeding and being happy with your life:

1. Get married, and if you are already married, try to stay that way.

2. Do not have children outside of marriage.

3. Try to get as much education as you can.

4. Stay away from drugs.

5. Stay out of trouble.

Generally speaking, pretty simple advice for most people, but I guess not for you two. Why do you hate poor people? And why do you keep quoting from the Bible? This has nothing to do with religion or the church. This is basic common sense whether you are an atheist, agnostic, or christian. Perhaps that's why you two are having so much trouble acknowledging the obvious.

Are you two really trying to say that these simple truths should not be followed by most people?

This has to be a joke. Okay, you got me. I fell for it. Ha Ha...good one.

Instead of church rituals.

All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten

1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don't hit people.
4. Put thngs back where you found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
6. Don't take things that aren't yours.
7. Say you're SORRY when you HURT somebody.
8. Wash your hands before you eat.
9. Flush.
10. Warm cookies and cold milk are good for you.
11. Live a balanced life - learn some and drink some and draw some and paint some and sing and dance and play and work everyday some.
12. Take a nap every afternoon.
13. When you go out into the world, watch out for traffic, hold hands, and stick together.
14. Be aware of wonder. Remember the little seed in the Stryrofoam cup: The roots go down and the plant goes up and nobody really knows how or why, but we are all like that.
15. Goldfish and hamster and white mice and even the little seed in the Styrofoam cup - they all die. So do we.
16. And then remember the Dick-and-Jane books and the first workd you learned - the biggest word of all - LOOK.”
― Robert Fulghum

if you want to have a better chance at succeeding and being happy with your life:
1. Get married, and if you are already married, try to stay that way.

Then why didn't Jesus marry? Or Priests? You advocate child molesters to marry? Wife beaters to stay married. Why do half of marriages end in divorce? Because its a man made unnatural ritual. Why are there married people in homeless shelters? Or unemployed? Or wealthy single people. Again you have no evidence, just childish lists with no meaning. Again, get married if you want but when you stigmatize those who don't, that's the problem you keep buring your head in the shit over. Some slower states still sell marriage and in such a blatantly corrupt church and some states intertwining laws. Prejudice against non married the same as they use against other denominations or religions. Social clubs have no business in government. You are either an American or a Catholic. You have allegiance to the country or the church. If you side with the church over the country you are a traitor and treason will be your crime. Not that Napoleon complex Bo Sessions has the integrity to enforce the laws. He hasn't got the guts to stand up against bad laws either.

2. Do not have children outside of marriage.

Are you advocating mandated abortion for single women? Another bit of bullshit that only gets kids beat up and chastised by redneck kids believing your bullshit. You promote bullying and hazing and even killing kids you and the church has titled "Bastards" Why do you want to hurt children? Why do you want to give child molesters a haven to continue? Why do you want to abuse women? The only conclusion to out of wedlocked up kids are Newty's Orphanages and child labor. Look dude, kids can be brats but that's no reason for you to hate them or be so afraid of them that you wish them harm if their parents decided to stop hating each other and get divorced.

3. Try to get as much education as you can.

Here ya go

Private education teaches falsehoods like creationism as science theory. Or prohibition of cannabis. Or whatever Monsanto school books print about GizMO frankenfud. Public schools have a larger peer review. Although all history is written by the victors. Math and Science go beyond human opinion like yours. The laws of physics determine fact more than religious story telling. Just to be clear, Ganja is an ECS supplement not a man made drug that treats symptoms for profit. So get your nomenclature in order.

4. Stay away from drugs.

Again you need to learn how to comprehend what you or what someone reads to you. Drugs are sold on every corner with as many drug stores as bars and liquor stores. Its sold on TV every 20 minutes with most of the commercials describing debilitating side effects. Legal drugs do more harm than illegal drugs. Your blanket statement is what Hippies advocated. NO white powders. You advocate drugs daily for the Military its speed to stay alert on missions and then downers to sleep. Truck drivers getting produce to market popping black beauties and women in marriages popping pick me uppers and college kids cramming tests popping white crosses. Such a hypocritical bullshitter you are dude.

5. Stay out of trouble.

That is as lame as any child could muster. Marriage Laws protecting wife beaters and child molesters keeps them out of trouble but they still cause harm. I said it before, you follow blindly like you were taught. You have no means to decipher right from wrong so you just follow dysfunctional orders designed for profits you will never see. Sessions didn't get busted for racial profiling in Alabama or his lying about Ganja now. Trouble in the profit prison max cap contracts is designed for profits, not goodness. Your backward thinking was chased out of the mainstream and it doesn't seem like Americans are that gullible to being it back. Marriage is legal for those who want it but it isn't a magic wand and just as many are successful without it. Kids too aren't taking the same blind orders seriously as in the 50s. Teasing handicap children or those with mental disabilities.

Might makes right is complete and utter bullshit that has no place in civilization you are deathly afraid of for some odd reason. Maybe you've been married too long, for the sake of the kids. This particular issue shows your cowardice. You would have advised MLK to keep quiet, it will only make trouble speaking out. You would have whined about the Forefathers revolting against King George. You are the worst of America. The racist ugly side of cowards without the ability to reason. Sad you are the plastic people jerking flags while denying civil rights or even human rights. Those afraid to speak against injustice are destined to live under tyranny. Gutless is not a redeeming trait boy.

Come on dirty coal you can do better than that for an answer. So far you don't even get partial credit but have only scored an incomplete.

Come on boy you can do better than that.

Tell ya what let's make it open book with no time limit, ok. So no rush, just connect one thought to the next with some sort of coherent reasoning is all thats been requested instead of pulling one jagged thought after another out of thin air as the whim strikes you. For instance; how is it you equate two ELECTED officials (whatever you may think of them) who were only doing their jobs to an UNELECTED official that over steps the bounds in the persecution of a private individual? Because the last time I checked a laugh is not a federal crime and not a punishable offense, well that is, unless it happens to be in a bar room which is kinda long ways away from the AG's office if you haven't noticed. From there you somehow got to marriage, kids, education, no drugs, god, country and apple pie. Over and over and over..........and over.

Jeff Sessions Slams Legalization—Again

“I’ve never felt that we should legalize marijuana,” Sessions said on Wednesday. “It doesn’t strike me that the country would be better if it’s being sold on every street corner. We do know that legalization results in greater use.”

A new study contradicts the claim that legalization results in greater usage. The study was published in the journal Addiction last week.

Sessions is a long-time antagonist to marijuana legalization. Earlier this year, Sessions called for the return of the stricter anti-marijuana “just say no” view on drugs from the 1980s.

During the same speech, he continuously suggested that marijuana was the gateway drug fueling the opioid addiction crisis. He’s not even sold on the value of medical marijuana despite Trump’s promise to leave it up to the states

Trump's like a grease fire pouring water on himself...

Athletics' Bruce Maxwell first MLB player to kneel during national anthem

NFL owners speak out in support of players, against Trump

Trump's for sure an idiot in a position of power. But I think its more than coincidence he's poking sticks at two of the 3 axis of evil Bush Cheney started. His Alabama pep rally rant is working backwards. I've never seen so many players kneel down during the anthem. Or discussion, with most agreeing with the players. His cronies can't finish a sentence without eyebrows raised. Same with trashing Steph Curry who it would be hard to find someone as easy going. What pisses me off the most is these wimp drumpf groupies live in a place that protects citizens free speech that seems to offend these fake Americans into silence.

Trump's an ignorant bully with a childish dysfunctional motive to be a star. Its sad that Americans who go to these pep rallies are so out of the loop of normalcy its obvious. No spines left. They laugh at his jokes and even his conceited bloated head spewing how wonderful he is and how Alabama loves him. He started to sound appreciative of the crowd who came out to hear him. He said he owns a very large apartment in New York City and he comes to Huntsville and feels... At this point I thought he would sound grateful for their support. Instead he sounded as if they should be grateful he came to Alabama.

He actually said it was the crowd who loves him so much he had to come. He thinks they see him as a savior of their dysfunctional wingnuttiness. These are the poorest demographics in the US. They vote for right to work for less laws and condemn a Co-opting of factories so every worker gets a living wage. As I said, he is a plastic fake bully putting more value in the flag than the citizen who's rights it symbolizes.

The drug war is not about drugs. Or pot. Its about sucking up tax dollars to fill pockets. A trillion and a half spent trying to eradicate cannabis while pharma drugs are out of control killing people. Ganja is replacing addiction of opiods and the people we pay to deal with it, lie. Sessions is a fool and thinks its pre-internet days where the TV repeats memo's the DEA writes and the people stay dumbed down and afraid.

There have always been drugs and pot has always been the easiest to get. But now legal states are cutting off blackmarket supplies or rather diverting money from cartels to communities. Now in legal states kids have less avenues to get pot and synthetic garbage that doesn't show up in piss tests are increasing. Instead of dealing with this. Sessions and the media try to lump it together as synthetic marijuana. Bath salts have NO relationship with Cannabis. He could be moving resources to fight the actual problem and find and destroy the labs. Except he is so reefer-phobic he spends time and money terrorizing sick people, around their own doctors finding something that helps them.

That is worth burning flags over. Not plastic flags, they melt and pollute. Cotton has a couple pounds of chemicals in each flag or tee shirt. So don't burn cotton flags. Hemp flags are the only flags worth burning except its still illegal to grow them and if you're going to burn hemp, it might as well be in a doobie.

So kneeling down is the least problematic. Unfortunately there are still a large segment who have no respect for life, only money and what they can get out of it. Same weirdo's afraid of pot, skin color and now that they live here, anything foreign. They are taught unions are bad for giving people larger paychecks and benefits, causing the factory to move to India.

They support the troops regardless why they're drone bombing villages. They were the ones holding fire-hoses on Vietnam war protesters and never questioned why we were sending kids to die. Or did they have a problem with agent orange debilitating Vietnamese people and the very troops they go ape-shit over when someone kneels down during the anthem. Vets were called liars for seeking medical attention. Complete denial from the Vet Admin. Same as today with PTSD and pot. They will strip a Vets benefits, including medical. If they are caught with a MMJ medical card or substance itself.

No concern over sending troops anywhere a corporation needs protection. That's why we went to Colombia in the name of eradicating coca and coincidentally protecting Al Gore's Occidental Oil Company oil that happens to be under Native burial grounds. Or the Dakota pipeline through sovereign and holy lands. Where the citizens have lower life expectancy than Iraq. Same who put guns rights over human rights or nepotism over fair work practices. These dumb ass mfers are watching as Trump deregulates OSHA and the EPA. Against the workers and their own families health. How do you reason with suicidal lapdogs? Kneel down during the nationalists anthem. Then fire up a joint.

The DEA and Beauregard continue to lie to the citizens and make false accusations about cannabis as if the rest of the world doesn't exist. Israels Medicinal Cannabis research program is over 20 years old. When the DEA or AG looses control of the conversation, they are exposed as charlatan using fake science. Yet most of the people hide behind the claim of its none of their business. A land of sheep following wolves never make it to greener pastures. But they are more afraid of the black sheep, so they follow in silence. Pitiful.

Kosher Weed Arrives Just in Time for Rosh Hashanah

Israel Officially Recognizes MMJ as Agricultural Branch

Will reality sink into Napoleon Jeffie or will he continue to take rights from citizens over bogus pisstasters results? It measures metabolites that have no causal connection to impairment, have been used to weed out politically incorrect workers, those of color and those with a different sexual orientation. Another un-American activity by the very people upset over disrespecting the flag.

Court Rules Field Sobriety Tests Unreliable for Marijuana Detection

Legal states are building schools and repairing infrastructure with tax revenue. Hundreds of thousands of jobs and billions of profits recirculated in the community verses spending billions on lame ass slogans.

Growing North American Cannabis and Hemp Operations
Fueling Billion Dollar Industry Revenue Growth

In thousands of years of cannabis use there has not been one death from overdose. There have been pages of lists of people killed by the prohibition of cannabis. Many of them too sick to fight back. A war promoted and fought by cowards and cheats.

Cannabis Activist and HIGH TIMES Freedom Fighter Gideon Israel Dies

Pro-Pot Doc Fighting Big Pharma Stabbed to Death at Home

Many Mourn the Death of Pro-Pot Doctor Sonya-Kay Forbes

Unfortunately, the world lost another voice in the cannabis revolution. While it’s unclear if Forbes was murdered due to her potentially controversial views on medical marijuana, it’s obvious her work won’t go unnoticed. As cannabis continues to become legal on a much larger scale, expect Forbes and her life’s work to serve as a template for the medical community for years to come.

Talk about an incomplete answer. So I can only conclude that you think people should choose to get into trouble with the law because it appears some people "get away with it". Is that correct? Some people cheat welfare too but do you want to do away with it? Doctors commit medicare fraud. Do you want to do away with it?

Because some people choose to abuse drugs, in your worlds, that means everybody should.

I get it...both of you believe that no one is responsible for their actions. If you fall into the drug trap, its because your life's circumstances forced you into it. Trouble with the law? Well, I grew up in a bad neighborhood and I didn't have a choice.

I get your position now.

What has happened to the democratic party in this country?

Republicans Admit to Accepting Bribes, Why Aren't They In Jail?


The whole Roy Moore thing in a way really highlights in my mind how committed the Republicans are to sucking up to the very, very wealthy base. I've been referring to them for a long time as the owners of the Republican Party, but they're also the ones that keep the Republican Party in power. They're also the supporters of the Republican Party.
