There seems to be an interesting conceit that Obama gets 95-97% of the black vote because blacks are the real racists, voting for one of their own over the best candidate.

Except, uh, this is the exact same percentage of black voters who vote for Democrats in every Presidential election.  LRN 2 POLISCI, RACIST-N00BS

That's because the blacks are getting free phones.

Or something.

I dunno.

It always is.

I'll see if I can sign up as L30n Tr0tsky and mock them again.

Hey team - I'm going to make a suggestion. That now is not the time to be sloppily bandying about Atlas Shrugged. It's a pretty clear concept, and I don't think it's good to be calling 'not buying newspapers' the same thing as 'shrugging.' It's the left's job to mutiliate words and concepts, not ours. But instead of harping on that, I'm going to take another road. "I don't believe it matters to me- that they're going to destroy it. Maybe it hurts so much that I don't even know I'm hurt. But I don't think so. If you want...
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

“People get used to anything. The less you think about your oppression, the more your tolerance for it grows. After a while, people just think oppression is the normal state of things. But to become free, you have to be acutely aware of being a slave.”

Ohhh....now wait a minute...

"More than that, Mr. Romney had spent so much money winning the nomination that he was low on cash; aides, seeing the problem taking shape, had once considered accepting federal financing for the campaign rather than rely on private donations."

So the 'successful businessman' representing that party that constantly reminds us of how bad the govt is and how it hurts free enterprise, considered getting funding from the uhh....federal government.

Well, if someone can constantly twist themselves into so many ideological positions, perhaps Mr Romney can find work as a yoga teacher?

The Freepers are also convinced Obama conned and vote-stuffed his way to electoral victory.

Their evidence?  Obama did not win states with strict voter ID laws.

Of course, that voter ID laws are the bugbear of Republican politicians, which would require a mostly Republican state to pass, meaning most of the state is ideologically predisposed to dislike Obama and not vote for him, is apparently not what happened at all, oh no.  Also no evidence of pro-Obama states in the last election that suddenly turned Republican due to voter ID.

Huh, that's funny.

RI has voter ID laws, and he won our state by like, 70%.

Somewhat more importantly...

Marijuana legalization won in Colorado, with 50,000 more votes than Obama.  Massachusetts legalized medical pot. Washington legalized pot AND gay marriage. Detroit decriminalized pot. A few other places either legalized gay marriage or at least prevented pre-emptive gay marriage bans.

The less people that get put in prison as a result of the drug war (which Obama has ramped up since the Bush years) the better, since said war has an incredibly outsized impact on minorities and the poorest segments of society.

I get chronic pains in various parts of my body.

I should mention this to my doctor.


If Mass's law is set up anything like Maine's, you should have no problem whatsoever.

Law's only a day old sir.

Anyway, meant to be more of a joke than anything else, even though I actually do have chronic pain (I suck it up, attacks usually only last a couple of minutes) and I enjoy a bit of the shmoke. I'll wait for full legalization if I can, since I can buy alcohol, which, judging from the progression of marijuana legislation here should be in 2020. Considering that I only smoke about twice a year, I can risk getting the equivalent of 8 traffic tickets between now and then.

It did just occur to me though, that I haven't smoked at all in 2012, unless that time that I smoked in winter was in January.

PopeTom and I just had a revelation.

Karl Rove spend 365 million dollars on his failed Super-PAC.

There are 311 million people in the US.

He could have given EVERY CENSUSED AMERICA A DOLLAR AND A QUARTER.
