  •  These Are Your Constitutional Rights.... (3+ / 0-)

    .....These Are Your Constitutional Rights, protected by a Constitutional Scholar, in the Wars on Drugs* and Terror**.

    *Excepting nicotine and alcoholic drugs. Even though the science clearly shows that nicotine and alcohol are more dangerous than marijuana, the Obama Administration has chosen to use politics, instead of science, to set its marijuana policy.

    **Only the non-white, non-Christian terrorists.  Just because there are White Christian Extremists who set off bombs to create a White Christian Nation, doesn't mean there is a terrorist movement to convert the US into a White Christian Nation. In this regard, the Obama Administration has chosen politics over reality, in formulating its Homeland Security policies:


    Quotes from former DHS Analyst Daryl Johnson:

    [The] DHS has not released a single report of its own on [White Christian Terrorism]. ...—whether it's anti-abortion extremists, white supremacists, "sovereign citizens," ...

    ....

    There have been a lot of small-scale attacks ... three mail bombs sent to U.S. government facilities in Maryland and D.C., or a backpack bomb placed near a [Martin Luther King Jr. Day] parade in Spokane, Wash., or two police officers gunned down at a traffic stop in West Memphis, Ark., [by antigovernment extremists in May 2010].

    .... no one [at DHS] is being vigilant about the threat from  [White Christian Terrorism].

    Obligatory qualification***:  Yep, what we get from the Obama Administration is better than what we would have gotten from McPalin.

    ***(aka: Damning with Faint Praise.)

    While I don't hold Obama in high esteem, that doesn't mean I would say he's the Devil Incarnate and the lessor of evils. He is merely the lessee of evils.
