    God, for lame. I still and will always believe that legalizing marijuana could do a world of good for our budget.

    I knew it was a trap. You just can’t trust this administration on anything can you?

    Jesus, seriously? What possible good can come of this? Name a single positive effect this could have.
    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

    It will make a lot of bible thumping Republicans happy?

    It won’t increase tax revenues but it will cost states and local governments more tax revenue and will cost more to enforce.

    Just a lame thing to do.

    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.
