Why Do You Think They Call It Dope?: Obama OKs Getting Stoned.

Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35" was one of the (unofficial) theme songs of the US Army's 709th Military Police Battalion in Offenbach, Germany, when I was stationed there in 1966 -- nice to see the song getting the recognition it deserves! :-)

Best move the Kanamit in Chief has done yet.

He just re-won the full support of his most loyal constituency...Now he's gotta figure out how to lure them away from the microwaved burritos for long enough to vote.

Perhaps a new stimulants package?

Unaddressed here, but no doubt a major consideration, is the positive effect of being stoned when your official bedmate is a Klingon ...

Finally, some sense in this country's insane War on (Some) Drugs.

"Obama OKs getting stoned"?? Like we should have to get the government's permission to do with our own damned selves as we please?

Now, if only the Obamatrons would sign up for a generally libertarian program, instead of the generally totalitarian one they're pursuing......

Fat chance, that.

Pot is OK, but Cloves? Sorry, we gotta bogart that kretek.

It's for your own good, children. Now stop complaining a pay your taxes, unless you don't pay any, then cash the check instead.

It's the proper Conservative decision.
