“He's going to have to. That cut and paste budget ain't working. He's going to have to generate real money.”

“Yeah, perfect. We know that when young people smoke 'M' it creates abnormal structures in the brain ... but if it means the Left will have more money to spend ... no big deal.”

“That's funny, because Christie came out and said that he is opposed to legalization and used Colorado's "low quality of life" as an example;
nevermind that Colorado is higher rated than New Jersey in virtually every standard you would use to rate quality of life (besides median income which is not a good indicator due to massive inequality), almost all of which have either gone down or not improved at all since Christie became Governor. I live in NJ and the states with legalization are better options. NJ has gotten progressively worse from mismanagement and corruption in the Corzine and Christie eras. Christie's a total fraud.”
“Not only does this irresponsible judge not do the job she was trusted to do. In her overzealous attempt to protect this monster from "not doing well" in prison, she may have increased the danger of the children by allowing their pedophile father to be in close proximity. This has got to be a source of anguish for those children.”
“"U.S. counterterrorism officials are pursuing the possibility that a pilot or someone else on board the plane may have diverted it toward an undisclosed location after intentionally turning off the jetliner's transponders to avoid radar detection"
This is seeming more and more plausible. So strange.”
“What a great commercial. little by little small gesture by small gesture, people will eventually come around to the fact that differences in appearances and alternative lifestyles are nothing to judge a person on and certainly nothing to be afraid of. We are all humans in our hearts and that is the only thing that should matter.”
“Is there anything that they will not criticize the President for? Really! This is getting old really fast. With people in their camp like sara palin and dear michelle, they have the nerve to even speculate about what is acceptable behavior?”
“"putting about $2 million of tax revenue into state coffers in the process."
This is what advocates of legalizing weed have been saying for decades. take the profits from the cartels and turn it into state revenue. For education and day care and things which enrich the lives of citizens. Good to see the results so fast and so financially promising.”
“"Cruz noted all of those GOP presidential hopefuls were "good men" who just didn't stand up for Republican beliefs."
The fact that they didn't stand up to America's beliefs doesn't matter? History and reality teaches them absolutely nothing and that is why they will always lose in national elections. Personally I am fine with that.”

“So happy that they won. The film and the performances were masterpieces. However, as a spectator, it was one of the most difficult films to watch. To be confronted by such a diabolical thing such as slavery, in such a real way. The film puts the spectator on the plantation. Witnessing all of the atrocities those people endured. It was frustrating, to not be able to do something, I wanted to react. We have all read accounts of slavery in history books. We have all been angered and embarrassed by our despicable past. This film brought it to life. Not only have amazing artists been recognized tonight, a very important part of our history has been brought to our attention in a very honest and real way and we must never forget that history.”

“..."a very important part of our history has been brought to our attention in a very honest and real way and we must never forget that history."
Yes. I think America would be a better place today (less ignorant and more tolerant) if that history, as well as the multitudinous contributions of black people, had been given the place it deserved in our history books, from elementary through high school.”

“As a black person I have not seen it, don't want to see it and may never see it. BUT I am so very happy that the film won. I'm happy for the screenwritter, the producers and the actors.My aunt bought me the book, I might read it someday, but I don't like how these kinds of movies and films make me feel about my fellow human beings so I'll just have to assume it was a great film.”

“I agree wholeheartedly. It left an imprint on me. I personally will probably not watch it twice but that's a compliment to the fantastic job they did crafting a work of art. I've recommended to all of my friends.”
“"Lockman released a statement Wednesday in which he said he regrets his comments."
Translation: I regret that my comments were heard by those who do not share my extremist, insulting, judgmental views and that those views have gone viral on the internet.”
“My brother benefited from this type of law intervention program. It was 20 years ago and he has never looked back to a life of petty crime and addiction since. This is the type of plan that can change lives for the better and give those who need it the most a helping hand.”
