DUmmies Condemn Obama for Opposing Marijuana Legalization
I'm going to change my party affiliation after what obama did.
[Let me guess. You're going to switch to the Green Party?]
agricultural hemp would be immediately a 1/4 Trillion dollar industry, even before it frees us from foreign oil, THAT IS WHY IT IS ILLEGAL.. !! BEST, CLEANEST RENEWABLE BIO-DIESEL THERE IS. then there is the building materials, chemicals/resin/plastics, non toxic base for oil paint, textiles, animal feed, human food, fiber for clothes, non acid paper..
[And don't forget it's invaluable use as brownie filler.]
I agree with the whole "let's end the drug war, let's tax it, let's have it for medicine and fuel and fabric" idea, but start a new single-issue party that doesn't have a chance in hell of beating Democrats or Republicans in any but a tiny number of races? How does this work?
[Just take a big hit on the bong and worry about all that later.]
we got screwed by Obama, badly
[For Ben Burch that would be a positive.]
I'm done with him, We The People are being betrayed in so many ways:
-- mj/hemp -- no backing for legalization
-- war in Afghanistan
-- no prosecution of war criminals/traitors/blatant lawbreakers
-- health care -- single-payer "would raise taxes" so it's out
-- handover of our tax dollars to wealthy welfare recipients for jets, yachts, "bonuses"
-- "bipartisan" bullshit that simply dilutes any effort at progressive legislation
-- DLC/fake Democrat/right wing appointees
-- retention of as many of bushco's lawyers in DOJ as wanted to stay
-- continuation of rendition, and Guantanamo detainees still held without being charged
-- calling Chavez a "terrorist" instead of taking the golden opportunity to enjoy a good relationship with our neighbors to the south = ASININE
If you're not a billionaire, just as with *, you don't count, and if it doesn't have to do with war war war war war and Wall Street, it doesn't count.
this was a "community organizer"? community of bankers, perhaps.
[It sounds like you really need the legalization of marijuana in order that you can take those many bong hits just to forget your betrayal by Obama.]
I feel the same way.
[Just breath deeply the secondary smoke emitted by the previous DUmmie.]
I'm pissed too... You list several issues that are important as well...Single Payer Health care is a big issue,but looks like we're gonna get the shaft on that as well....hey!Can't go pissing off the big money people.
[For Ben Burch, getting the shaft is a good thing.]
What I fear is that some of the talking heads are right. Obama is a cult to some like Bush was to the Freeps.
[We pledge our sacred fealty to our Blessed Master, the Emperor Chimpus Khan.]
There is apparently no disagreeing with Obama on DU. If you do disagree you are being petty and your outrage is "faux". Just because there is no real case for keeping pot illegal, just because every single argument can be refuted in the blink of an eye, just because Obama is DEAD F*CKING WRONG about this issue, doesn't mean you are allowed to say that. No we have to be good little Dems and march in f*cking lock step or... or... or... someone might call us names on DU!!!! I've stayed away from here for a few months and came back to being called a lazy whiny pothead. Well that's good enough for me, it's on DU so it must be true.
[Perhaps you should form a Lazy Whiny Pothead caucus and lobby Obama on this issue. I even have your slogan: "Bongs, NOT Bombs!"]
I was annoyed at the way he handled the question yesterday. He could have given the same answer without being flip and dismissive. Now I see he completely and purposely mis-characterized the question into something totally different. That was completely unnecessary and harmful. Very disappointing to say the least.
[Don't blame Barack. Blame his teleprompter.]
The thing that bugs me about this is that Bush, or whoever the hell was in charge, was able to do just about any goddamned thing he wanted to do, any goddamned time he wanted to do it, and f*ck anybody who didn't like it. Those pricks did whatever the hell they wanted for 8 years. I'd like to see the Democrats get just a little ruthless for once.
[Would it make you feel better if they sent out roving Chekhist squads to liquidate EVIL Republicans between bong hits?]
