  •  The scary shit is that as soon as we re-legalize (9+ / 0-)

    you know they're going to re-task all these agents to copyright enforcement or some such shit.

    People in the 30's thought that the end of alcohol prohibition would roll things back...but they just regrouped and redirected towards a harmless plant.

    I'm not, in any way, saying this should be a reason not to fight.  But no, their gravy train won't be over (sadly).

    Mr. Universe is a known degenerate Robotophile, and his sources include former Browncoat Traitors. What is their agenda in leaking top secret information about the Reavers and endangering us all?

    •  Some budget cuts are a good thing. (10+ / 0-)

      Instead of Dems reflexively rejecting all federal budget cuts, we should embrace cuts that target waste fraud and abuse. Like the entire DEA.

      Look, I'm sorry those people will have to get new jobs, but school teachers need the funding more. Can't we agree on that?  

      •  They sure would be a good thing. That doesn't (2+ / 0-)

        they'll happen.

        Everyone thought "look at all the money we'll save not enforcing alcohol prohibition".  They just shifted to other prohibition.  Agents didn't lose their jobs.

        You and I can agree on that, but we're not Senators.

    •  Have them focus on Meth and Heroine (2+ / 0-)

      I'm not a fan of militarized police raids on anything, and I wouldn't be a big fan of the precedent it'd set. But, I'm not going to go to the proverbial mat for Meth legalization.
