And as for all the pearl-clutching about pot smoking hippies...
What's wrong with pot-smoking hippies, pray tell? Other than that the rentiers who sell far worse substances as Big Pharma and Big Liquor don't want their competition? What's wrong with a lot of small businesses bringing in cash that stays local? What's wrong with ameliorating pain?
Back when hopey changey seemed more like a marketing slogan and less like the mind-bogglingly evil bait and switch it turned out to be, Valerie Jarret did a big poll, put it in a three ring binder, and handed it to The Lightbringer. Demand #2 was Medicare for All. Demand #1 was legalizing marijuana. So President Fuck You tossed it in the dumper, insulted his base in a White House presser ("I don't know what that says about the online audience [laughter]"), just like he insulted the "little single payer advocates," and that was the last we heard of that.
Fact is, the pot smokers have it completely right on policy. All the wars need to end, and that includes the war on drugs. So I get a little tired of like Obama fans Willis, who after all did everything in his powers to foist the Newest Nixon on the rest of us based on what? Ponies? getting the vapors and doing the ol' finger-wagging routine on behalf of bad policy because they don't like the way "these people" look.
Perhaps Willis should give consideration to holding a fundraiser so the occupiers can dry clean their suits after sleeping in the park?
I mean, it's almost like people are invested in seeing the occupiers fail. Odd, that.
NOTE "These people" not a quote from Willis; the quotes are there to show the tribalism.
