Response to Grassy Knoll (Reply #7)

50. Bullshit!

 

He didn't legalize gay marriage, but he took a stand and it makes a difference. Why doesn't he take a stand on marijuana?

If he'd been stopped, frisked and arrested just once when he was 20, no one today would know his name. Think about it!

At the Americas conference he stood tall for the insane Drug War against almost every head of state on two continents. The world is starting to wake up from the nightmare of drug prohibition, but the US remains at the lead.

Nothing is stopping him from speaking truth about an insane policy with horrific consequences for millions of people.

Federal law enforcement is a question of priorities. They're going after pot plants and doing nothing about the banksters who raped the world. (Schneiderman's crack team is now up to 65 members - compared to 1000 financial fraud investigators just for the S&L scandals of the Reagan years.)

Policy, budgets, foreign policy, regulatory implementation -- the White House has enormous impact on all, and these are all related to the drug issue. As if you need to be informed of this. (As soon as something good happens somewhere, it will be Obama's credit, but when something within his purview is fucked up, he can't do anything about it.)

No cheap excuses! Lives are being lost and destroyed every day. This is a real war with real victims, and unfortunately Obama has chosen to remain its commander in chief.
