so has the expected wave of RW outrage over the president' pot quote not materialized because

they are in such disorder that they are polling it and trying to figure out how the whole thing fits into th general scheme of getting primaried by a libertarian nut that is for pot legalization AND eliminating the social safety net?

Did the prez. just throw another wedge between the gop factions?

11. Depends on what you mean by "establishment" and "hippies"

 

There has to be a categoric generality generator somewhere on the Internet.

12. Always a problem when you use language to try and convey ideas

Rather like that old saw about what the meaning of "is" is.

5. because they see the figures

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/08/marijuana-sales-colorado_n_4552371.html

Owners of the 37 new dispensaries around the state reported first week retail sales to The Huffington Post that, when added together, were roughly $5 million.

...in fact, I think I'll make this an op.

9. No they got stuck on the race card thing

Most righties had the article read to them and when they got to the first part of Obama's sentence on being black they kind a of got stuck there. That and they have to defend the two once great govs that are now crashing burning.

10. Republican voters vote to legalize every time they are asked. 50k in Colorado

 

who did not vote for Obama voted for legalization. Since the neither the DNC nor the President has actually stood up for legalization both remain in step with GOP policy.
It's only the calcified 'faith community' and other saps in both Parties that support the status quo. The rest see money and medicine and industry and think the old skool cats are idiots, some Republican some Democrats, but idiots all.
If one Party came out for legalization, they'd win tons of support. Hope it is our Party that does so.
