    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It wouldn't do jack for our budget. Primarily, because we're in the middle of a depression and no one has any money to spend on pot.

    Lol, you'd be surprised. The help from the budget would come from a massive reduction in the crime budget, though.
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation
    Against: corporations, make-work, the 40 hour work week, intellectual property, imperialism, "homeland security," censorship

    People can still afford cigarettes? Alcohol? They can afford weed.

    And yet they still spend more on it than they do any other crop.

    I could understand this if there was someone who could possibly believe there was some truth to all the anti-Pot propaganda from the 30s and then later claims that is is a gateway drug.

    Obama knows all this to be bogus because he was a regular Pot smoker, he was also a user of Coke and those were his own words.

    This had to be a political decision to somehow garner votes from some place.

    I don't get it.

    I am a life long Conservative but in my youth I did my share of puffing away, and never did any of the other drugs of the 60s, and I was there.

    Hell I was in Haight-Ashbury twice in the summer of love 1967 and at that time had never had a puff, in fact most Hippies thought I was a narc because of the whole short hair clean cut thing. I quit many years ago with no addiction issues so I know that's bogus too. I have had trouble with Winstons though.

    Obama would have fit into the Haight quite well.
    It's to take aim politically on Obama's time in office as a lying hypocrite.

    Well it's about time! Weed is a very crippling drug, once you get off it and get rid of all your friends that use it, you will grow!

    I am very disappointing by this. However I am not so sure legalizing pot would end the war on weed. From the few considered state proposals I have seen the states wanted to tax it heavily ($250-450 per ounce) meaning many persons would still grow and distribute at a much cheaper rate. We would still have a strong black market demand. The Fed would still be busting people for avoiding taxes much like the moonshiners of old.

    This sucks man.

    Maybe if Obama lit up, he wouldn't be so stressed.
