As if you and the other ultra conservatives on this site do not do the same thing, only from the other side of the political spectrum. Your hypocrisy is so bad, it is almost admirable in its immensity!!
I wonder why the Progressives want:.To ban all tobacco use but promote smoking marijuana?.To give endless handouts without preconditions?.To remove any and all attempts to ensure those voting are eligible to do so and who they say they are?.To make it “A woman’s right to choose” but when a woman chooses to have a child make it the man’s responsibility to financially support that child?.Just curious….
This is hilarious! And yes, it’s all true. The taking the food from the poor bit is the most painful, because it seems to be the GOP’s highest priority at the moment. Kick them while they’re down.
Nantucket, smoking tobacco or marijuana can cause cancer. Both produce roughly the same products from combustion. But, because marijuana is smoked unfiltered it is more cancerous weight for weight than tobacco is.Both also have delitorious effects on people in other ways.Just remember, as recently as 100 years ago tobacco was considered “medicinal” too.Advocating for one while fighting against the other is hypocritical..How about we reduce government regulation on employers along with de-complicating the tax code so employers can pay their workers more without having to be forced to by another government fiat?Lower the cost of government first before forcing a raise in the minimum wage..Sure, absentee voting is rife for fraud. Let’s eliminate it entirely. If voting is so important then people can find the time to go to a polling place to vote.Also, there should be identification requirements to register and cast a vote..Sure, women have risks associated with birth but if men have no say in the process up to birth then they should have no responsibility beyond it either.Both parties should have equal responsibilities and rights just as with any other contractual obligation.As for Roe v. Wade the SCOTUS made that ruling out of thin air but that is a different argument for another time.
Enoki: not to burst your bubble, but cannabis can be used to TREAT certain cancers and destroy them. As a poultice, among other things, tobacco actually CAN be medicinal, and functional. It’s how you end up using them that makes a difference. Opium is also bad news, but a very potent painkiller when used medicinally.
LIke religion, it’s when applied in excess, or with distortion of the “rules”, that dangerous things happen.
There are thousands of links that talk about marijuana use and cancer causation. Most note that while better research is needed, the evidence to date is that smoked it causes cancer just as cigarettes and tobacco do..Here’s one link to a good article on it..http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-teenage-mind/201102/does-marijuana-cause-cancer.Note, I stated “smoked” not eaten or otherwise ingested. Those will take far more research to know.
Excellent satire Mr. McFadden. Thanks for putting the truth out there.
Any Nation that does not provide the basics of life (food, shelter, medical, and security) for their poor, their homeless, their disabled, their elderly, their veterans, and their children is a failed Nation and a doomed Nation. A graduated income tax, to date, is the best means of achieving that end. Make the monies available to the poor the working and the middle classes—as occurred during the late 30’s through the early 70’s—and they will spend it on food, shelter, medical, etc., and the monies will ‘trickle up’ stimulating and growing all of society.
Sadly, and the biggest lie yet, is that corporate welfare (big tax breaks to corporations), creates such wealth that the surplus monies (supposedly) will’ trickle down’. The late housing debacle, where the banks were given billions in bailout monies and tax breaks, has clearly shown that ‘trickle down’ does not work. The money lenders have yet to release their ‘windfall’ monies to small businesses and the middle/working classes…so much for trickle down.
Today They (The Corporations and Banks) have paid and bought—lock-stock-and-barrel—most Republican politicians in one form or another and these politicians are now but the puppets of those corporations and are now, disingenuously, regurgitating to the public the mantras of corporate/stockholder economics, economics that—in the whole—generate monies that serve only the avarice of the corporate-stockholder-political-puppet- triangle. As for you and I, the small businesses, the middle and working classes and the poor, well as far as “They” are concerned…we, the back bone of America, can all go to hell!
Yes America is about self-reliance, but self-reliance built upon helping each other achieve a greater end for the good of the whole rather, as “They” would have it, a greater end for only the few and the privileged.
“Everybody knows there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch. Where does the money for food stamps and like welfare state programs come from?”The exact same place the money for agribusiness subsidies come from.
Wow! This cartoon blows!
The last comment was a little perplexing: “So you don’t like guys taking care of the children they father? How odd.” Personally, when I lost my first wife, along with the baby I sired, I felt like a shell of my former self. I spent the lion’s share of my life savings on her care as she was the mother of my child. Regretfully, it turned out for the worst. While I am putting my life back together, not one day passes that I do think about them. If God ever blesses me with more children, I will consider it a high honor to be proud to be their father.
There are some of us who are infirm and unable to get to the voting booth. Absentee voting is the only way I could ever vote, so you want to deny me my right to vote? In t\all the years I have cast my vote, not once has the ballot been stolen from my mailbox. I would like for you to focus your efforts on more worthwhile matters, such as injustice and right to choose, for instance.
“Where does the money for food stamps and like welfare state programs come from?”~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I’m going to make a wild guess and saythere is a tiny possibility that all the hungry people in our country could be fed with the money that our government spends every day on nonsensical stuff.
“Obama is a closet smoker”~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Before I quit, over 11 years ago, I had smoked for 60 years! Which of us is the biggest sinner? (Judge not, lest thee be judged)
