“Lets see now.... Weed has been legal say.... since: "The dawn of time - to about 1937. And like before 1900 - EVERY drug was perfectly legal in this country. O, how did we survive? The truth is: People like to get high.
How come we don't outlaw all "dangerous" activities like skydiving and motorcycle riding? Because that would be just silly. Just like this silly drug war that enriches the Mexican cartels who end up terrorizing the people of Mexico. Up to 60% of the cartels $$$ comes from bud. Make it legal.... that money goes bye-bye.
But the truth is... law enforcement and the companies that provide their equipment would lose money if bud were legal. Just like the prison guard unions in CA. are against legalization. Because it would put them out of work. So you need to be "scared" into paying up.
Really now..... its as easy as ever to get whatever drug you like. Drug war = 1 trillion dollar fail from Nixon to present.”
“There weren't any atheists at the "big bang". So they take it on "faith". Agnostics are more honest. Science is always being updated and subject to change. 50yrs from now there will be a new theory.....”

“Who was at the big bang?? And how do you know that?”
“We need a "peoples party" that rejects Dems and GOP altogether. The people in power want you to be split and atom-ised and ineffective. The disenfranchised should form a block and take and make whats needed. We need leaders and reps and newspapers or agencies that speak for the majority, not the ruling class. But what do I know...”

“What do you know?
You should know that you are not alone in your thoughts.
The Dems and Repubs have become subservient to the interests of corporations and big business and have all but ignored the plight of the majority of American's.
The time has come for a viable and vocal third party.”
“Soooooo glad the bill passed!!!! Hip, hip hurray america and my fellow huffposters. Lets keep doing our part to piss off republicans and get everyone healthcare. I wish the public option was stronger, but its a start in the right direction.”
“Looks like Sarah did a "cut n run". If she cant handle being governor, she wasn't capable of being VP either? Good riddance. Time for her to start living off of the rich republicans she met on the national scene. They'll have some cushy job set up for her.”

“You're right. If she tries to run everyone is going to make hay out of this one event. But I also wouldn't count on the Republican elite to bail her out. She's make money on the book she writes, so she'll be set financially. But I think all but the very far right are doing everything they can to distance themselves from Sarah "cut-n-run" Palin.”
“She rambles on in one long sentence. I guess she doesnt like to use periods or something....”

“She doesn't understand periods to the tune of her daughter getting pregnant prematurely.”

“I know, she doesn't understand a comma or a period while speaking.. She is awfull , such a lighweight.. Olberman predicted that this Letterman thing would turn out badly for palin, I think he is right..”
“So doctors, lawyers,bankers, cops and shrinks don't have perverts, freaks and even a few nut jobs in their ranks?
A great job using analysis and deductive reasoning in finding the victims killers - bravo!!!
But truckers, like other professions and trades, have people from all walks of life and backgrounds. To try and pin it (serial killing) on the "occupation" as a direct cause or correlation. I think is a bit myopic and short sighted.”
“We haven't even explored our own oceans adequately, never mind space. And no, the planet cant sustain all of us if everyone in the world wants to live like an American. We use more raw materials then anyone. So I would happily spend NASA's budget on say passive solar heating and technologies that allow us to live on the planet without destroying it.”
