it's not 'sneaking' anything. People get medical benefit from it AND people should be able to

use it recreationally if they're consenting adults.

Medical use laws highlight the ridiculousness of, say, SWAT teams dragging a terminally ill cancer patient off to prison in his wheelchair for smoking a joint. Which happens way too much.

And yes, if a terminally ill cancer patient should be able to decide what to put into his body, so should the rest of us.

But you are correct, the DEA shouldnt make the call, and they wont, anyway (clearly) because they have a vested interest in the status quo.

Unfortunately congress skews heavily and unfairly towards inherent social conservatism, because although the majority of Americans are progressive and liberal on social issues, those people are concentrated highly in certain congressional districts and under-represented by the inherent structure of the US Senate.

some people live in perpetual anguish that others somewhere might actually be having a good time.

God, I listen to them, and I think how absolutely miserable their own lives must be, to spend all that time pissed off, banging their tiny clenched fists ineffectually, and fulminating about what is, after all, fairly ordinary and normal human behavior.

It's Nebraska.

Even the sex scandals are boring.

We need to look around... ask ourselves, who wants to fight? Who is constantly picking a fight?

Who is more intetested in stirring up shit, than promoting unity?

That applies to the jackass hecklers, as it applies to people on the internet.

Who wants to stir up dissent and simply can't do without an argument right now--- or do without trying to piss fellow Democrats off?

And Then ask ourselves-

Why would they be doing that?

I come from a very long line of survivors.

Fuck giving up.

Yep. It's the truth.

In the places where actual innovation is taking place, no one gives a fuck about suits and ties. The truly valuable people in Silicon Valley come to work every day in sweats.

"tradition" is shorthand for "we are out of ideas"

I think a lot of people are scrambling right now

To figure out how they can continue to engage in the sorts of disruptive crap they have come to love, enjoy, and depend upon to entertain themselves, under the new system.

It's a testament to the brains of the admins, that they have made it so difficult for that crowd.

She was also another punk rocker i was in the process of slowly turning on to the Dead

Or, at least trying to with the rare occasional success.

I think she would appreciate this one.

What your post reminds me of:

I've learned from long experience that commenting on what people choose to get outraged over, here

invariably turns into another outrage, and before you know it you are stuck in an outrage feedback loop.

So I'm just going to line my helmet with cottage cheese and go back to bed.
