Oh, Colorado! It's a Joker; It's a Smoker; It's a Midnight Toker

At the stroke of midnight, in different time zones, two dopes made history in 2014.

The first dope made history in New York City, when a politician left of Leon Trotsky was elected mayor of New York.

Yes, here in the United States.

His first order of business?

Get rid of horse carriages.

Yes. He's doing it because a liberal will do lots of things they can do, once given the power to, good idea or not.

In his bid to bring poor people and rich people closer together, he’s getting rid of horse carriages.

“We are going to quickly and aggressively move to make horse carriages no longer a part of the landscape in New York City,” Mr. de Blasio said at a news conference as reported by the New York Times. “They are not humane.”

Um, no…they’re equine.

Glad he can tell the difference between a horse’s ashhhh…ah, forget it.

In any event, he didn’t seem to posses such knowledge when he was supporting the communists in Nicaragua known as the Sandanistas.

de Blasio, as many such morons do, went to Nicaragua in 1988 to help the children. At the time president Reagan was helping the Contras topple the Sandanistas, who were allied with Cuba and the Soviet Union.

But, scratch a liberal and somewhere, somehow, they’ll blurt out that it’s all about the children.

“Bill de Blasio, then 26,” writes the NYT, “went to Nicaragua to help distribute food and medicine in the middle of a war between left and right. But he returned with something else entirely: a vision of the possibilities of an unfettered leftist government.”

Unfettered leftist government is what is known as sugarplums to Commies at Christmas time.

And you thought New York was in trouble when Weiner and Spitzer were running for mayor?

Ha! Welcome to Barack Obama's America where perverts look better than the converts.

The second dope made history in 2014, at the stroke of midnight Mile High style-- that is mountain time-- when eight dope stores in the Denver area opened. They each can legally sell up to one ounce of marijuana per day to Colorado residents and lesser amounts to those from out of state thanks to 2012’s referendum or proposition or direct democratic vote that legalizes such sales.

Like de Blasio, Colorado can’t tell a horse’s ashhh…ah, forget it.

“Proponents have long called the legalized sales [of marijuana] a windfall for state coffers since retail pot will come with a hefty 25% state tax on top of the usual sales tax of 2.9%,” reports the LA Times. “By some estimates it is expected to generate $67 million a year, with $27.5 million designated for schools, officials said.”

Almost a third of the money goes to kids?

Hey kids: Let’s Get Stoned for Students!

With a male, teenaged child in public school in Colorado, I’m not sure I feel comfortable selling his soul for the $27-point-whatever that will go to schools he’ll never attend.

But even if he did attend a school that got money, I’m wondering if there’d be a way to opt out.

Probably not.

At this rate they'll have to change the state song from "Where the Columbines Grow" to "Where the Cannabis Grows." Or how about "Oh, Cannabis!" That's be great during hockey games.

Where's the Steve Miller Band when you need them?

I'm a joker, I'm a smoker
I'm a midnight toker
I get my lovin' from a bong

Don’t get me wrong. I’m all for idiots exercising their constitutional right to kill their brain cells by inhaling “Larry OG, a potent strain of marijuana that connoisseurs like for its euphoric rush”-- and now available at health food stores in the Denver area—and thus also available to my child, because it will help the schools.

There’ll be a lot less competition for me when stoners stay at home and toke; less for jobs, girls, food…ok, maybe not food,

But I can do without the liberal hypocrisy that justifies the law by “helping children.”

Because whether you are the Sandanistas, or di Blasio, or Obama or any of the other wild-eyed do gooders that screw up the world in the name of saving children, I have a message for you: You don’t have to believe in the devil to sell your soul to him.

All you have to do is vote for him.

In fact, in the process of selling your soul you may just become the devil.

If you don’t believe me, try to count the number of lies the White House-- and the Democrat leadership-- has tried to tell you to support Obamacare.

Yes, the Obamacare that isn’t providing more coverage; the Obamacare that isn’t providing lower costs; the Obamacare that isn’t reducing the deficit.

Yes, that Obamacare. The Obamacare that promised you something for nothing and kept half the promise by producing nothing.

Let’s face it: the dopes are in charge.

We’ve put them there.

And that means we can’t tell a horse’s ashhh…ah, forget it

It’s hard to believe how fast the country is going down the tubes. Will it still exist 50 years from now? Twenty years from now?

There is going to be a huge backlash country wide. Colorado already recalled tow corrupt antigun demorats and a third resigned out of fear. The nation sees it can be done.

De Blasio will be the nightmare NY deserves, they picked him and he is their problem. Prohibition has and will always be more trouble than it is worth. People should be prosecuted for crimes against others, not personal failures. If a intoxicated person gets behind the wheel of a vehicle they should never drive again, and should their actions take a life they should never be free again, or in my personal opinion they should pay the ultimate price! Maximum freedom and maximum personal responsibility is the requirement of a free society.

A government that can tell you whether you can grow a plant in your basement and smoke it is the same government that can tell you what kind of healthcare you must support. It's the same government that can tell you that you must support the recreational sex habits of individuals.

You reap what you sow. Some folks seem to love authoritarianism when it suits them.

I heard on a conservative talk radio show, that de Blasio wanted to free up the very valuable real estate taken up by the horse stables. One of de Blasio big time doners wants the land to develop for housing.

The useful idiots are those claiming that the horses are suffering, not being treated humanely. In reality the horses are treated better than most New Yorkers. In reality it is about money, big money.

The anti-gun laws were passed by the legislature. Pot legalization was passed by referendum. Hard to have voters backlash against themselves.

Colorado has a strong libertarian streak, I know, I've lived there. That is the beauty of how federalism is supposed to work - different states can enact their own laws that suit their own viewpoints. And now we will see if legalization in one state works better or worse than the one-size-fits-all federal pot ban where the feds usurped that authority and with all the abuses of power that usurpation usually leads to.

Two reasons for DeCommio's upcoming ban on Horse Carriages:

1) His corrupt lib-dem-commie-mafia backer, Steve Niclick, want the 64,000 sqft of Clinton Park Stables, for development, and

2) NYC Teamster's Union - also lib-dem-commie-mafia backers - pressure to eliminate union hold-outs in CPS - whom they also represent - forcing them to either join cabbie's union (Teamsters), or go out of business.

FOLLOW THE MONEY!

Evidence? Surely, there are a lot more unauthorized, non-union cab drivers in NYC than carriage drivers. And surely the horse and carriage business is mostly for tourists and doesn't compete much with other forms of transportation. I'm thinking if it just up to the Teamsters there wouldn't be any change.

The Teamsters represent both cabbies and horse carriages, but threw carriage owner/operators under the bus for DeCommio and cabbies.

Carriage owner/operators will be forced to buy medallions for, on top of cost of $175,000 electric cars, on top of existing carriage medallions, whereas cabbies only buy mdallions. That will bankrupt many/all the carriage drivers.

NYCLASS is a scam greenie operation, probably covertly funded by White Hut/Crib or other spin-off shadow group, like all of 0bummer’s wasteful, not-ready-for-primetime faux-green BS crappola.

Follow the money. All the details of this NYCLASS-Teamsters-DeCommie scam haven’t come out yet, but when they do, it will be another leftist/marxist-engineered/funded by taxpayer dollars, program.
