This is just going to be my stream of consciousness on the issue of pot legalization. Look, I’m not against people smoking pot if that’s what they choose to do. It’s not my place to judge anyone on their personal choices and what they do in their home. Unless you are the neighbor in our building that keeps flooding our apartment with your pot smoke. I digress. It’s the legalization and ultimately the accessibility of pot that I’m concerned with. Once we legalize pot, I truly believe this will open the flood gates. So pardon me while I sound a little condescending, but here are my thoughts on pot legalization:
This young man is Brandan Tavlin. Have you heard of Brandan? You probably should. Brandan was a great kid minding his own business when he was randomly murdered by an Islamic extremist for being, well, American. It’s troubling that these things are happening in the Middle East. The problem is that this actually happened in West Orange, New Jersey. Yup, here in America.
In fact, Brandan was one of four people murdered by Ali Muhammad Brown, a self-proclaimed Jihadist that killed in the name of Allah and retribution for American aggression. Sounds like terrorism right? Nope. Police are saying that Brandan was just killed in a robbery gone bad. There’s one problem with this explanation: He wasn’t robbed and Ali Muhammad said in his statement to police that he killed Brandan in retaliation for American soldiers being in the Middle East.
In what can only be called more of his lunacy, Harry Reid’s main priority when back in Senate is restricting your freedom of speech. Not immigration reform. Not ISIS. Not the government spying on its own citizens. Not the Israeli/Palestinian war. Not our failing economy. Not our terrible international relations and foreign policies. But I think Harry Reid is right. I mean, what’s more dangerous than a back talking electorate?!?! Don’t the citizens of the United States know that Politicians are our leaders and know better? It’s their jobs to interrupt every aspect of our lives. To tell us what to do at every step.
We all know that the majority of professors and teachers are liberals so it’s no surprise that academia pushes their leftist ideology on students. It’s as though part of a student’s college training is showing they can survive the stupidity of 60 something hippy communists spewing their anti-American rhetoric all while keeping some semblance of common sense intact.
The FBI recently released a report that shows that Cuba is aggressively recruiting leftist academics. Why? Because Cuba knows these professors share their communist ideology and have the ability to influence a generation of future politicians and citizens. Are you surprised? I’m not. Is this treason? Yes. Should these academics that are aiding Cuba be tried for treason? Yes. Should they be thrown in prison? Yes. Does this article even address what we should do to these professors? Nope.
Instead we see that the FBI and homeland security are more concerned with American patriots that respect and support the Second Amendment, believe in smaller government, and believe in god. Again, are you surprised? You shouldn’t be.
In what can only be called a tragic day for American journalism, Chelsea Clinton has quit her $600,000 per year job with NBC News. I know, cue violins. How is the media ever going to survive this? She says that she has too much on her plate at the Clinton Foundation as well as her new baby that’s on the way. Or, I have another reason: Could it be that her mom, who has been under fire for her idiotic comments about them being poor, is going to run for President and can’t have a daughter getting paybacks from a news organization? Let’s be honest, Chelsea has zero experience and nothing to offer NBC News. They brought her on board and payed her $600,000 per year as a bribe to her parents to get more access. But remember, the clintons are poor.
Some great lessons in here from Admiral William H. McRaven.
