booky, or TGT, or any of the Repub Regulars here who don't usually engage in any kind of dialogue here....

Do me a favor...break out for a minute....

What do you think about corporations (who your Party believes are 'people too') who have evaded trillions in taxes by offshoring?

Are they heroes of yours who should be canonized for escaping the tyranny of taxation?

Are they criminals that should be prosecuted to the greatest extent possible?

Oh, the irony....


Edit:
So we're supposed to take you seriously when you voted (twice) for the Party that twisted the Constitution into a pretzel so it could start a war based on lies that killed thousands of people, destroyed billions in property, trashed the US economy...

...and you don't even know the difference between SDSU & UCSD?


You don't need much of an IQ to see that the GOP is the worst possible choice for America, and that TGT & his ilk are dupes who can only communicate via pictures.

The Conservatives have been putting pressure on Obama all this time to crack down on legal weed, and try and force the Feds to disregard States Rights on the status of legality .

Does anyone want More Government Control of their lives with these tyrannical conservative laws trumping States rights!@@
Not me, that's for sure, get out of my house, car and bedroom you judgmental Nazis.


GOP Demands Obama ‘Enforce The Law’ In Pro-Weed States, Passes Bill

What Happened To States' Rights? GOP Calls Obama's Refusal To Enforce Drug Laws 'Executive Overreach'

The GOP is upset with Obama over his refusal to enforce federal drug laws in states where marijuana is legal. They call this failure ‘executive overreach.’

The Republican House just passed the “ENFORCE the Law Act” in an attempt to force President Obama to enforce federal laws, even where state laws directly contradict federal law. Representatives Trey Gowdy (R-SC), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Jim Gerlach (R-PA) and Darrell Issa (R-CA) introduced the bill, which passed almost strictly on party lines. Now it’ll go to the Senate, where Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said it would be dead on arrival.

Goodlatte submitted a report on the bill, which says that the purpose of the bill is “To prevent executive overreach and to ensure that the President discharges his constitutional duty to ‘take care that the laws be faithfully executed…’” among other things. It also allows Congress to sue the president for failing to enforce the law. Some of the executive overreach examples he gave have to do with federal drug laws in states where marijuana is legal, and the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

If any climber has Darrell Issa as their Congressmen, just promise me you will vote against him in Nov. for the sake of all Humanity

I'm not sure why people insist on calling politicians crazy when they simply don't agree with them. There are certainly some with a tentative grasp on reality. Michelle Bachman has certainly created an alternate world for herself with alternate histories and politics based on a lifetime of fringe education and social groups. Whether or not that makes her "crazy" or not I am unsure. Ted Cruz, on the other hand, is far from crazy. You're talking about a whip smart guy who went to Ivy League colleges (though will still be touted as Joe Everyman as any good Republican Ivy Leaguer is) and knows very well how his bread is buttered and where his political future lies. His fake filibuster of the ACA was very calculated, not crazy. Every time he does one of these things he rakes in HUGE dollars in contributions, elevates his personal standing with the far right (and also hurts the country but I think we've established that Republicans think that the country is worth burning to the ground to rebuild in their image).

Cruz is willing to crap on a lot of people for his own benefit and seems a lot more interested in elevating his own political stock than actually improving the country...but he's not crazy.

Agreed. Cruz is not at all crazy, nor is he dumb. Quite the opposite.

Know thine opponent, as they say.

Sound advice for all of us, eh?

House Republicans Want To Sue The President For Not Arresting People For Marijuana

The Republican-controlled House passed legislation on Thursday to force President Barack Obama to crack down on states that have legalized marijuana in any form.

Introduced by Reps. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), Jim Gerlach (R-Pa.) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), the ENFORCE the Law Act (H.R. 4138) would allow the House or the Senate to sue the president for "failure to faithfully execute federal laws," including those related to immigration, health care and marijuana.

"President Obama has established a disturbing pattern of cherry picking the laws he wishes to enforce," Issa said in a statement. "The Constitution charges the President with the responsibility to faithfully execute all the laws and not just the ones he supports."

A Judiciary Committee report submitted by Goodlatte last week regarding H.R. 4138 chastised the Obama administration for selective enforcement of the Controlled Substance Act, which prohibits marijuana outright. "The decision by the Obama administration not to enforce the CSA in entire states is not a a valid exercise of prosecutorial discretion," the report reads. "The guidance of U.S. Attorneys establishes a formal, department-wide policy of selective non-enforcement of an Act of Congress. This infringes on Congress's lawmaking authority, by, in effect, amending the flat prohibitions of the CSA to permit the possession, distribution, and cultivation of marijuana so long as that conduct is in compliance with state law."

The report goes on to describe the Obama administration's actions on marijuana policy as an "impermissible suspension of the law by executive fiat."

But Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) told The Huffington Post that he is not alone in the Capitol in his support of the administration's position not to interfere with state marijuana laws, adding that while states continue to craft sensible marijuana policy, Congress continues to drag its feet with bills like this one.

"It doesn't seem right to me to continue to waste our limited resources punishing people for doing something when it's legal under state law, the majority of Americans want it to be legal, and much more dangerous drugs like heroin are making a comeback," Blumenauer said. "I'd rather stop arresting two–thirds of a million people a year for marijuana possession and generate $100 billion over 10 years through taxes and savings."

Twenty states and the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. Colorado and Washington have legalized recreational marijuana. More than a dozen other states are pursuing legalization in some form over the next several years, and a recent poll showed a majority of Americans want marijuana to be legalized.

Still, the federal government continues to ban the plant, classifying it as a Schedule I substance that is among "the most dangerous" drugs, such as heroin and LSD, that are said to have "no currently accepted medical use."

Passed 233-181, all of the votes in support of the bill were from Republicans, alongside five Democrats, including Reps. John Barrow (Ga.), Collin Peterson (Minn.), Pete Gallego (Texas), Henry Cuellar (Texas) and Nick Rahall (W.Va.).

Some Republicans who have supported relaxed federal marijuana legislation in the past voted Thursday in support of the ENFORCE Act, including Rep. Mike Coffman (Colo.), who joined Colorado Democrats in urging federal regulators to give marijuana-related businesses access to traditional financial services, and libertarian vile Hypocrites; Reps. Dana Rohrabacher (Calif.), Justin Amash (Mich.) and Don Young (Alaska), who sponsored the "Respect State Marijuana Laws Act" in 2013 -- a bill explicitly aimed at preventing the federal government from prosecuting state-legal, state-licensed marijuana businesses and their owners.

Rep. Ed Perlmutter (D-Colo.), a sponsor of several marijuana-related bills, told HuffPost that the bill is "not going anywhere in the Senate," where our savior of liberal causes Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) confirmed in a statement the bill would be "dead on arrival."



Why do these Republicans want to answer their every intolerance with more Big Government Intervention and Big Brother Tactics into the lives of peaceful people??
why??

Sen. Reid: The Koch Brothers Are "Un-American"

SEN. HARRY REID:

What is going on with these two brothers who made billions of dollars last year in an attempt to buy our democracy is dishonest, deceptive, false and unfair. Just because you have huge amounts of money, you should not be able to run these false, misleading ads by the hundreds of millions of dollars. They hide behind all kinds of entities, Mr. President. It's not just their front organization, Americans for Prosperity, but they give money to all kinds of organizations, lots of money. You see, when you make billions of dollars a year you can be as immoral and dishonest as your money will allow you to be. It's too bad that they're trying to buy America, and it's time that the American people spoke out against this terrible dishonesty of these two brothers who are about as un-American as anyone that I can imagine.

Funny thing about the Republican's threat to sue President Obama to enforce Federal Law over the States of Colorado and Washington. Aren't they supposed to be the party of smaller less intrusive Federal government and States rights?
I don't get it did I miss the memo?
