    ANNCOULTER.COM NEWT: SPEAK BOMBASTICALLY AND CARRY A TINY STICK December 14, 2011Fellow right-wingers: Is our objective to taunt Obama by accusing him of "Kenyan, anti-colonial behavior," of being "authentically dishonest" and a "wonderful con" -- and then lose the election -- or is it to defeat Obama, repeal Obamacare, secure the borders, enforce e-verify, reform entitlement programs, reduce the size of government and save the country? If all you want is to lob rhetorical bombs at Obama and then lose, Newt Gingrich -- like recent favorite Donald Trump -- is your candidate. But if you want to save the country,...
  • Reality Intrudes on the Drug War

    In the story of the emperor with no clothes, it took someone whose observations are rarely heeded -- a child -- to point out the obvious fact that no one else could acknowledge. In the case of drug policy, it takes people who are usually ignored by Washington policymakers -- Latin Americans -- to perform the same invaluable service. Last week, a commission made up of 17 members, from Peruvian novelist Mario Vargas Llosa to Sonia Picado, the Costa Rican who heads the Inter-American Institute on Human Rights, did nothing but admit the truth: The war on drugs is a...
  • Marijuana Decriminalized!

    Voters yesterday overwhelmingly approved a ballot initiative to decriminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana, making getting caught with less than an ounce of pot punishable by a civil fine of $100. The change in the law means someone found carrying dozens of joints will no longer be reported to the state's criminal history board. With about 90 percent of the state's precincts reporting last night, voters favored the Question 2 proposition 65 percent to 35 percent. ...

    The Truth ^ | 11/5/08 | VaBthang4
    Now we get to endure all of the nonsense from the Libertarians. They will explain how conservatives did this wrong, did that wrong etc, etc. They'll subtly and sometimes boldly undermine Conservative principles under the guise of bringing forth common understanding. All while offering up their idiotic solutions cloaked in faux reason. Dismiss them as quickly as you would the most ardent liberal...because in the end, their perspectives spring from the same well; Anomia.

    Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Thursday blasted Rep. Ron Paul’s (R-Texas) comments about Sept. 11, 2001, in Wednesday night’s debate, offering a second round of harsh criticism of what appears to be Paul’s go-to line. “He really lit my fuse when he continued to assert that it was our fault we were attacked on Sept. 11,” Huckabee told reporters.
  • Randy Moss Traded to The Patriots? [OCTOBER SUPRISE]

    MOSS TO PATS RUMORS GATHERING STEAM Our network of NFL sources is buzzing with talk that the New England Patriots are trying to work a trade with the Raiders for receiver Randy Moss. "It's getting strong," a league source told us a little while ago. The trading deadline is 4:00 p.m. EDT today. A week ago our sleuthing could turn up no proof that such a move was possible. But the same gut feeling that had us convinced Neil Rackers would miss that late-game field goal last night for the Cardinals has us thinking that Moss could be making the...

    Single-issue people. They're out there... on every thread. No matter what the topic, they try to link it to their pet issue in some way, shape, or form. They are... The Thread Hijackers™. While little can be done to stop them, and it is probably best to ignore them, I find it much, much more fun to mock them. Sure, being passionate about an issue you care about is a good thing, but thread hijacking is annoying and, to be honest, turns off people who might otherwise agree with you. So, on to the mocking. I'd like to coin the...

    WASHINGTON — Pot. Cannabis. Hemp. Weed. Grass. The herb takes many names. But in the nation’s capital, where the marijuana lobby (search) was once the recreational diversion of Playboy Magazine's Hugh Hefner, pro-pot special interest groups have crystallized the divergent issues behind the plant and gained a seemingly unified voice. ________________ Puff, Cough, Puff, Cough________________ "It’s a no-brainer. It makes no sense putting old and sick folks in jail for an herb that makes them feel better," said Bruce Mirken, spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project (search), which was established in 1995 by Rob Kampia, a former mainstay at the...

    That way we can control it. The Government can ration it out in a sensible, considerate manner. The people who deserve it and the people who do not|will not. The drug lords, hit men, kingpins and gangsters will all be out of business. I mean, how can they sustain business if murder is regulated by the government? We can make it part of medicare reform or just add it in with some Healthcare Bill. Come on people. It's high time Conservatives get sophisticated like the rest of the World's idiots.

    George McMahon is not allowed to visit the field where the federal government grows his marijuana. He has stood outside the double razor-wire fence circling the plot in Mississippi, but he's not allowed inside. "I'm not really sure that I want to see it. The thought of all of that medicine locked up, while so many people are hurting, makes me angry," McMahon writes in his recently released book, "Prescription Pot." McMahon suffers from a debilitating genetic disorder called Nail Patella Syndrome. Since 1990, the government has supplied him with 300 tightly rolled joints each month. Only four other Americans...

    SAINT JOHN, N.B. (CP) - The owners of a Saint John cafe where patrons are encouraged to smoke pot and sip coffee are now offering over-the-counter sales of medicinal marijuana. Jim and Lynn Wood, founders of the Cannabis Cafe, announced Tuesday they have decided to sell high-grade marijuana from their store to people who need pot to ease their pain. "This will be Canada's first over-the-counter cannabis cafe," said Jim Wood. "Bascially, we're just trying to help people." The cafe has been open since April, but it has not been in the business of selling marijuana. The quaint shop offers...

    Violence in Northern California's marijuana fields is rising as government raids are on pace to seize a record $1.4 billion worth of the illicit weed on the North Coast and around the state. The body of a Santa Rosa man hacked to death by a machete was found near a Mendocino County pot garden Friday, capping a week in which four suspected marijuana-field guards were killed in two separate confrontations in Shasta and Butte counties with local and state authorities. Five weeks into the state's annual two-month harvest campaign against pot growers, marijuana raid teams are on a record pace....
