“We will eventually decriminalize marijuana. Until that time, we will spend billions on incarcerating people and making the lives of people who could benefit from medical marijuana miserable.”

“Dear PHD. You know nothing about how medical marijuana helps kids with cancer. No, it isn't a cure, but it it really helps these children. I urge you to volunteer at a children's cancer clinic and meet some of the many that are greatly helped by it.”

“i work with children suffering cancer on a regular basis. i find that there are a number of drugs that bring relief. the truth is that my argument was mostly against using batkid in this story to attack a prosecutor.”

“I hope the American people are paying attention and realizing the very serious damage being done to our country by the Tea party people. We are being destroyed from within, and we must come to grips with it. 2014 will be a very important election, and will determine whether this nonsense continues or whether we once again become a country with a functioning government. Please do not blame President Obama, as his nominees are not "left-wing" but balanced potential judges.”

“What is that supposed to mean? Voters should study the issues and candidates. This is neither "idealist", "liberal" or "partisan" but what is required if democracy is to function. I also attend candidate events, call my representatives and, on occasion, visit their offices.”

jjerrbberr02 on Nov 11, 2013 at 14:47:29

“The highest majority of the candidates themselves are compromised.

Whether you study the issues or not, ANY mainstream candidate is going to be beholding to some large benefactor at the expense of the constituency. Kochs, Addlesons, and a host of friends on one side, Soros, and Buffet and numerous others opposing.

It's a game to see which side can get their guys in office to protect companies like Monsanto, Haliburton, JP Morgan, Raytheon, and the rest of the military/industrial complex.

The plumb in the pudding is when not only do they get their candidates elected, they get one of the company's board put on a cabinet seat. See the FDA, the Treasury, the DoD. Look at the list of former corporate executives now making policy outside of the boundaries of congress.

The ACA was written by a former VP of Wellpoint. You tell ME who is going to benefit from Obamacare. Just an illustration of how deep the bed that corporate America and our political system lays in together is.”

“I hope the middle class and working poor in each Red district realize that their representative does not want them to have health care.

“In California, high school students who maintain a 3.0 average in the courses required for UC are guaranteed a spot at a UC. Which one they get into can depend on their SAT scores.The sad truth is that black students do not do as well in high school as other groups and so not as many meet the qualifications. There are many reasons for this, but a major factor is the lack of effective parenting and respect for a good education. Far too many black families have no father figure and the mothers themselves can barely read and write. Due to poverty, many tend to live in "ghetto-type" areas and only socialize with other deprived black people who tend to not have any up-ward mobility aims. Friends who teach at middle schools in these areas report that by that time, most black youth are way behind in social and academic skills and few have any respect for education.”

guthrum on Nov 9, 2013 at 14:28:15

“The problem is the school "system". Some of the best schools in the country are inner city schools. How do they succeed when others are disasters? They set a high requirement of achievement. More important, they set a high level of self discipline, responsibility, and parent accountability. This is something that many public schools have not done, and in some cases cannot do because of intrusive administrations, judges, and lawyers that tie the hands of principals and teachers.
One example of outstanding achievement is the Capital Prep School, located in Hartford Connecticut. It is directed by Mr. Steve Perry. Go to capitalprep,org
Read also "Educational Lunacy" by Dr. Walter Williams, which gives reasons why so many blacks are not getting a good education and what can be done about it. Go to Dr. Williams website, see columns.”

“The low minimum wage is one of the reasons the wealthy just keep getting wealthier. We have to subsidize their workers because they are unwilling to.

“Americans continue to be unaware of how much low wages really costs them and how this provides enormous monetary benefits to their employers. Even with a minimum wage of $10.00, workers will still be eligible for food stamps, housing subsidies, health insurance subsidies and the like. When our "minimum" wage is an actual "living" wage, we will become a nation of the people, by the people and for the people. Until then, we are a nation whose laws heavily favor the already wealthy.”
