seriously? blacks. gays. sailors. kings and queens, too, I reckon. Horse jockeys. taxi drivers. various religious groups. yellow people, brown people, hippies, the poor, the homeless, veterans. Medical marijuana patients. transgender/transexuals. minorities. humanities and non-humanities. Hmongs, Tibetans- well, they are not doing so well as a group... . Buddhists. Lawyers and Indian chiefs. Strippers! prostitutes. Unions! I could go on and on.

But not potheads. Why? Because they can't be bothered. Politicians use potheads to show they are tough on crime. Scared mother groups rail on about the slippery slope, and science is thwarted to hide the benefits or relative harmlessness of pot. But if every person who recently smoked pot stood up and said the end of this! It would end....

I almost protested the war on pot.... but because I got high.... because I got high.... because I got high.

"As many of our philosophers have learned, lengthy prison time does give one a different perspective on politics. A certain cynicism develops. You realize that you are either "in the system" or you're an outlaw. One realizes that every law & order bureaucracy operates the same way. Soviet admirals think exactly like our navel officers.....Prisoners tend to be the same the world round. Their real "Crime" is that , for one reason or another, they lack the power or intelligence or money to keep them out of jail." Tim Leary

You only get the "Rights" you can AFFORD to defend!! I don't need more laws to "give" me "rights"..

But people can't complain about Obama sticking his neck out when a majority of potheads won't do their part. It is how politics works. He has said he is against legalizing it- it was part of his platform.

Gays have their rights because people stood up and demanded it. You can try and rationalize it, deflect it and complain about it. But as long as the people (potheads and otherwise) do not stand up and demand change in marijuana laws, no change will happen.

Well I can say in this case at least that's its someone who taxes people more money the more they earn, to take care of people that (for the most part) can't take care of themselves.

I'm still confused. You believe that liberals, the "good ones" at least, believe in progressive taxes? And to take care of people that can't take care of themselves. That's amazing. Very shallow, but amazing. Here's what you do: Go pick up a biography of Thomas Jefferson and READ it very carefully. Maybe then you'll undestand how liberlaism works and how it is, as a concept, the very fabricate of this country. I'd also suggest you read up on James Madison, as the two were like Hunter-Garcia.

It's just a wonder how few people attack liberalism and yet can't explain the basis of what a liberal is. or is not. And have the gall to call Obama out as not being a liberal (and particularly a "good" liberal).
