Must hammer out a quick blog as Sam has a friend over and the living room couch is needed as a bed, but not too much to say that hasn’t been said. Trump is stupid, childish, delusional, the DNC is deliberately losing to the Republicans because that’s what they’re paid to do (find me a better explanation), North Korea is still threatening to blow up the world, there’s and absolutely insanely unconstitutional bill that some people in congress (and not just Republicans) are pushing which would actually make it illegal to protest against Israel.
On the bright side, Corey Booker has suggested a bill to totally legalize marijuana at the federal level, which would be amazing, revolutionary, and would totally change things for the better. But then, I remember who Corey Booker is, and what a bucket of sleaze he was to vote against senior citizens getting a break on drug prices, and I have to suspect this bill is merely his act of atonement, an attempt to remain politically relevant, to once again be the hero of the cool kids, and not sincere at all.
Someone said (not going to look this up, but I’m sure lots of people have said it because there’s a pattern, it’s a matter of public record) that Democrats will avidly support any bill they know has no chance of winning.
Which is a shame, because it could do for the U.S. what it has done for Colorado, and if we could get past all restrictions world wide on this miracle plant the world would be a much better, certainly a much mellower place.
So, here’s the deal, Senator Booker. If you actually get this bill passed, I will seriously consider your candidacy for the presidency. If not, piss off, you’re still a scumbag. Ball’s in your court.
