“What generalizations was I making? I didn't say ALL Republicans agree with the practice or All farms treat animals this way. I simply stated the fact that Republicans are the ones sponsoring this legislation in many states. I know many republicans and farmers who wouldn't treat animals this way. However you are somewhat accurate on the point about hate. Though, I wouldn't call it hate. I loathe and disdain the Republicans that think legislation should be passed that would protect animal abusers. It takes a lot to earn my hate. I hate the people that would treat animals like that. That is what is truly sad.”

“In a recent comment made by this guy, he admitted to being a convicted murder, sentenced to 50 years in jail. He's probably writing these comments from prison. I'm not exactly sure how he has managed to designate himself as any type of credible moral authority. When Jesus said 'those without sin, cast the first stone' he was thinking about this guy.”

“Well, Jesus did hang out with the dregs of society himself...I just like poking people who use old testament claptrap to justify their hate fetish. BTW, one of my closest friends - a kind, generous, thoughtful lady - did twelve years for murder. And in my opinion, she did humanity a favor because that guy needed killing.”

“It should be noted that Republicans in a number of states want to make what you see in this video illegal. No, I'm not talking about the animal abuse, I'm talking about the filming of animal abuse. They don't look at videos like this and think 'how utterly inhumane and cruel it is to treat animals this way'. No, they see this and think 'those poor, defenseless factory farm owners don't deserve all of this unwarranted negative attention. They are the real victims here.' This is not an isolated incedent, this mindset and these practices are pervasive throughout the US.”

“It's really sad that you live in a black and white world wherein you find it completely okay to generalize a huge swath of the population into whatever mold conforms them into the shape of your hatred for them.

“Out of the three of those things, marijuana is the least harmful thing you could put in your body. It's a far cry from the greasy, fatty bar food you will find at most alcohol establishments. Also, regular cannabis users have been shown to be thinner on average than non users, but keep hocking those stereotypes Hick. Your going to talk yourself out of the Governorship.”

D.C. Approves Driver's Licenses For Undocumented Immigrants

Commented Nov 6, 2013 at 07:19:04 in Politics

“Not giving undocumented immigrants licenses isn't stopping them from driving. Complain all you want about them being here, but if you get in an accident with one, having them deported is going to be of little consolation when you are stuck footing the bill for a new car and all of your medical expenses because they didn't have a license and couldn't get vehicular liability insurance. It's the reality we live in. Corporations and farms don't want to pay more for labor, you don't want to pay more for food, thus the temprory workers visa program is a necessity. Guess what, some can't afford to leave or don't want to when their visas expire.”

kiwiprosecutor on Nov 6, 2013 at 09:19:39

“You make a great point which also applies to many other moral dilemmas - people don't want to pay more for anything! They want the cheapest food, the cheapest clothes and the cheapest everything and turn a blind eye to how these goods are produced. Most of the cheap clothing sold in the US is produced in Asian sweatshops where workers are treated poorly and paid a pittance. Most animal produce is the result of the mass farming with terrible conditions for animals. Cheap labor comes at a price many don't want to know about.”

“When I see that picture, I think 'wow, that's in poor taste, pretty uncool', not 'wow, that's offensive, it would really be reasonable for people to post all of her personal info online, humiliate her sexually, get her fired, and threaten to murder her parents'. Glad you still have your humanity and empathy intact, but you might want to invest in a good dictionary to figure out what those words actually mean.”

LadySabertooth on Nov 4, 2013 at 22:48:08

“I know what the words mean, just because I still have my humanity and empathy doesn't mean I'm empathetic towards every single person on this planet. I've already made the mistake of having empathy for the wrong people and because of that I paid dearly. I may not have been in this world for many years but I will NEVER make that mistake again. Do her parents deserve to be threatend? No. Does she deserve death threats? No. But the question is does she get my sympathy? The answer is and always will be no. Just like I don't joke about dead soldiers or 9/11 I don't joke about the people who lost their loved ones, lost limbs and now suffer from PTSD because of a pair of psychopaths.”

“Really? That's interesting considering study after study have shown that the younger generation is not only the most intelligent, but also the least racist and most accepting of the LBGT community. I would say that most awareness campaigns and anti-bullying efforts have stemmed from the younger generation. If anything, the younger generation is reinventing the concept of social consciousness, that the previous generations have destroyed by their nasty political vitriol and utter disdain for anyone that is not like themselves. If you want to see who is tainting our youth, you should look to the generations that have brought us endless, meaningless wars, divisive political rhetoric, hatred for the poor and a philosophical ideology that unabashed, unfettered greed is actually a good thing. Adults have made it their goal to utterly destroy any notion of social consciousness and respect for our fellow man. You can't really blame young adults for becoming so cynical, considering what the 'adults' are leaving us with.”

“You are correct, apparently I misread your post. I thought you said that the MJ businesses could deduct their expenses, when indeed, they cannot. I apologize. I am very unhappy with the local politicians in my county that have voted for a moratorium on MJ businesses and dispensaries because of 'the children'. Yet they approved a new brewery downtown, support public alcohol consumption, and have yet to comment on the high school classes teaching brewing to the kids in science class. However, they are all too eager to forgo the school construction funding tax money that the dispensaries would bring in, while simultaneously supporting property and income tax increases to fund those same projects. More people voted for A64 in my county than voted for the president (who handily won the county), so it is despicable that my elected officials would be so willfully disrespectful forward us voters.”

“Demicrat, it's all good. It's funny that so many people have commented on this (rather short, in fact) article against Grover, when they are (i believe) proponents of legal pot. I think everyone but you, me, and rvrrat69 saw the name Grover and allowing new (albeit, formerly untapped) taxes and assumed the worst. It blows that these politicians are using the industry's controversial status to extract more taxes than are fair and just. But i do believe as time marches on and the industry gains political power, they'll push back and things will even out. I feel your frustration, but here in Illinois, we FINALLY passed MEDICAL MJ, and i would love to have Colorado's problems instead lol. We're all stuck having to give it time i suppose. Do us proud so we can follow in your footsteps sooner rather than later!”

“Actually, that is not true. Marujuana dispensaries are not allowed to deduct any business expenses from their taxable income. Marijuana businesses are treated extraordinarily unfairly when it comes to fees, licenses, taxes, and oversight. Treating it like alcohol, as stated in A64 in Colorado would be great if it weren't for the fact that Colorado has some of the lowest taxes on alcohol in the country and the politicians in all of their wisdom are asking for a minimum tax of 25% on all transactions for MJ. Despite the fact that they completely squandered the money they collected when the dispensaries originally opened, buying SUVs and expensive monitoring software and are now unable to actually pay for people to watch those ridiculous camera systems set up in all of the stores. The anti pot crowd is so over zealous to regulate and tax these businesses, they have made the whole legalization process somewhat counter productive.”

imsureidontcare on Oct 27, 2013 at 10:28:49

“Well, you've definitely informed of some things i wasn't aware of.
But what did i say that wasn't true?
Grover, the clown that he is, sent letters to lawmakers asking them to support the bill that would start allowing MJ businesses the legal ability to deduct expenses like any other business. To my knowledge, they haven't done so (yet), but he still was trying to help them in this regard.
I think the people who aren't in favor of legalization know they have the ones who got it done half way over the fire. This is still very controversial and they've used that to extract a lot of tax concessions and in order to keep the feds "happy", those ridiculous taxes had to be agreed to.
Hopefully, as this becomes the norm (which i hope it does), the taxes will be brought to acceptable levels by all and every American can choose to either drink, use MJ, or remain straight, sober.... and stressed and boring.... Lol.”

I worked many, long, hard years for my retirement now I will have much less to live on as my deductibles and co-pays go up in multiples, my doctor abandons his profession, death clinics will decide if I get any treatment at all, or will delay until I am dead.
