Comment "Users" doesn't tell us enough (Score 1) 560

Exactly how marijuana is used might be a factor. Smoking gets you lots of combustion byproducts: carbon monoxide, etc. Vaporizers and edibles do not. I'd like to see the breakdown, and maybe compared with cigarette smokers as well. Maybe it's the THC that is causing the effect reported, but maybe not.

Here's a thought how about the DNC replaces her with someone who has NOT attempted to break the law? Failing that how about someone who doesn't have a paper trail showing they tried??????

Too late. Ballot deadlines have passed. I believe early voting has started in some places. The DNC just can't call up 50 states and tell them to change the name on the ballots.

Comment I'm glad most posters here weren't fooled (Score -1, Troll) 319

I'm glad most posters here weren't fooled by this obvious stunt. It's like cutting aluminum foil into the shape of a gun, putting it in your airline luggage, and then crying "Racial profiling!" when the TSA pulls you out of the line for questioning. "Help, help, I'm being oppressed!"

That is what the voting booth is for. With generalized vote-by-mail, we would see much more vote buying and small-scale intimidation such as “vote for my stepbrother if you want to keep your job”.

Another issue is that the elderly in nursing homes and elsewhere are often "helped" to vote by people who actually mark the ballots according to their own preferences.

Indeed, the "people who've been caught doing exactly the same thing as she did" were Condoleezza Rice and Colin Powell and I haven't heard of anyone asking for them to prosecuted for these "crimes".

Another b.s. talking point, long demolished. Rice and Powell did not set up their own email servers. They did not send Top Secret material via insecure email. They did not destroy government documents. They did not lie about it.
