Holder: Trust me! Kids will never use pot!
« on: February 02, 2014, 08:16:55 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

Although I have long supported decriminalization of pot, if I didn't know better, I'd think these two (OPapaDoc and Holder) had an agenda to destroy American exceptionalism by tearing away at the country's cultural fabric.  Oh, wait.

It's funny how OPapaDoc says in the STFU (my variation of SOTU) speech that he wants to put in place new policies that will help lower class people become upwardly mobile.  I wonder if he thinks legal marijuana will do that?

George Washington's reply. (From his Farewell Address)



This spirit, unfortunately, is inseparable from our nature, having its root in the strongest passions of the human mind. It exists under different shapes in all governments, more or less stifled, controlled, or repressed; but, in those of the popular form, it is seen in its greatest rankness, and is truly their worst enemy.

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries which result gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of public liberty.
