Comment Re:Better up the Military Budget (Score 1) 115

Just in case their crazy-sounding warning happens to come true.

It's all those Marxist SJWs in the US Military pushing their climate change agenda based on a Chinese hoax just so they can get money from George Soros.

Give me a second, and I'll work in a reference to #pizzagate, pedophilia, third-wave feminism and corrupt games journalists.

I'm only referring to the adjectives and focus made by the media on the monthly job figures.

Could you give an example? I think you might be misremembering (as GWB put it).

When it comes to economic news, the media seems to be pretty evenly distributed across a center-right section of the spectrum. .

When Bush was president 200,000 new jobs was considered anemic

That's not true.

And remember, those 200,000 new jobs have to be offset by the 900,000 we were losing per month at the end of his presidency.

Barack Obama is the first post-WWII president who did not take the economy into a recession at any point in his terms. He took us out of one - a big one - but left it in better shape for President Elect Urinal Cake.

Who’s Really in Prison for Marijuana?

The statistics your study cites only include state and federal prisons. Not county jails.

In most states, if you are caught with small amounts of marijuana, you would find yourself in a township or county lockup. Then you'd have a trial where you''d plead out for no jail time. So, you end up with an arrest and conviction on your record for yes, having a few joints. So the time locked up may be short, but the legal impact on your life can be great.

In Arizona, it's a felony to have ANY amount of marijuana. In Tennessee and Florida, it's a felony to have less than an ounce.

After prohibition of alcohol ended it took decades for per capita consumption of alcohol to reach previous levels. Public health improved in several respects.

If you read the study (I just did), you will find that the way they measure alcohol consumption disregards a lot of the ways people consume alcohol.

Sometimes it take a day or three. It doesn't mean I agree with the website, it means I'm intrigued by something, or "aw hell no" by something.

I think the problem was the harem pants. They offended the French sense of fashion. If he had just gone with the beard and maybe a man-bun, he'd have been on the cover of French Vogue.

I imagine some wannabe jihadi in MC Hammer pants singing "Can't Touch This" in arabic. Don't look at me like that. It's how I deal with the world.

You stupid sack of shit, if the demand for child porn is destroyed, there will be no incentive for child
porn to be made, and thus no children will be victimized by being used to make child porn.

Look how well that worked out for drugs.

Locking people up for small amounts of marijuana sure destroyed demand for marijuana oh wait...
