Only if they believe like so many others out there that drugs should be legal and not prosecuted. Apparently like holder probably does.
If we allow those who do small amounts of drugs to walk around, at some point there will be no concern of repercussion to one’s own actions. Many say that weed does not effect the way a person functions. That is incorrect, if it alters the way the mind works, it is then altering their ability to function properly. Many of those who have been prosecuted are not the ones that have a joint or two. I have been witness to those who show lack of enthusiasm after smoking, they also went on to feel the need to get high more often. They say it takes away the worries and pain from life. How is that good? Isn’t that what alcoholics say? I was injured at work by someone who had done weed earlier and was in his comfort zone. That caused him to not be attentive of his fellow employee that he was helping at the time. I don’t say that they should be incarcerated, I just do not buy the assumption that it is not an issue that people are altering their minds with drugs. If we are not supposed to drive or operate heavy equipment on legal prescription drugs because they alter ones ability to respond in time, what makes you think it is different for those who use weed? Not everyone reacts the same to all things.
This response is not meant to be racial, though the highlighting of the race of the Obama’s household would make it sound that way. What was privileged, well, it could have been the fact that he was brought up in a diverse community with his White relatives in a time where it would have been harder if he had not. He was able to be in Hawaii where it would not have been as much an issue to be of a minority. Though he did not know his Dad well, he did have his White Grandparents. By his own admission that was where he learned the multi-cultural aspects of his life. The things he did and grew up with as a teenager was culturally different than Treyvon’s. Yes, he did allow his race to be the excuse for doing the drugs and alcohol. It might not have been a privileged upbringing in the sense of financial, but he was awarded many things from being in Hawaii that Treyvon may not have had in his Florida community..
Yes, it is like waiting for a Pope to die and a new one being instated. It is not a criticism, it is those of us that are not effected by the circumstance continue to have to see it all over the news.
From the way I see it, these race baiters’ are looking to make it a crime to say or do anything towards minorities and make it a hate crime as with Gays, or the same way we cannot say anything about the Islamic extremists. It has gotten to the point that because this Country was built by White Settlers and that through 1928 their ancestors were forced to live a way they are not today, the White community must be punished for the acts of those in our past. Instead of trying to move on and build a better community for the children in these minorities we keep trying to blame those outside of their culture. It is not racism causing the problems in their culture. It is lack of teaching and showing the kids how to become better than those in the past. Many people from these minority communities have gone on to make it in the world. Why don’t they begin to make changes in their own culture instead of making excuses for it? Racism is a personal issue as we see from Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. They are holding back those for whom they say it will free when it ends from moving on if the kids ignore what will not effect their goals if they try.
I was just trying to point out to those who believe that by doing the amnesty thing is not going to cause a soar in prices. I guess they could close the boarder then raise the wages, force the farmers to hire legal citizens to do the work. As they can replace the undocumented workers then they get an incentive to help defer the cost of searching for the legal citizens. I am not sure how to deter the farmer from hiring the undocumented laborers. The undocumented persons should be forced by farmers to legally apply for citizenship as the rest of those who come through the process properly. There does need to be punishment for those who continue to hire undocumented persons in order to force them to change. I am not saying to send anyone home, but we cannot continue to just let the status quot continue.
No, I do not agree to the idea he profiled him the way you are proposing. With the crime in the community he was interested in knowing who this was acting suspicious. That is what the undisputed 911 tape shows. If he had stayed in his car and let the police come, would that have been profiling? The only difference between the two was he got out of the vehicle to keep an eye on where this person was going. If he was profiling the way you appear to suggest. Why did he call 911 and not just go after this person and wait till the right moment to shoot him? As far as the gun goes, that is a probable outcome, but it may have turned out that Treyvon would have been acquitted due to an unarmed Zimmerman. We can only speculate.
How would you get the undocumented guns from the criminals who had stolen them or from an illegal source? Ask the criminals to please come in and hand them in no questions asked? The problem with you and the liberals is you believe that a gun policy will automatically get all guns out of the criminals hands. It only works on law abiding citizens as they follow the law and criminals don’t, hence the word criminal.
They may be placing them across the boarders at a higher volume, but they are coming across the boarder at an even higher rate than that. Does that make it better?
Those that are not legal now will in turn expect higher wages once they are given citizenship. It is only common sense, the ACLU and Farm Unions will demand it, therefore it will not be cheaper. They will be entitled to healthcare provided by the farmer. This too will increase the price of product. What are they paying the workers right now? The Government is trying to change minimum wage (around $12.00 per hr), nice try.
