Patrons of liquor stores are ‘drunks’

That’s the logical conclusion when customers of marijuana retailers in Washington state are ‘potheads’…..right?

So says an on-scene reporter during Martha MacCallums “America’s Newsroom” on Fox, complete with a snarky comment about how since there wasn’t a rush of customers at the time of opening, they must have all been ‘sleeping in’.

There’s your ‘fair and balanced’ reporting…

  1. Jersey's claim re “minorities” is racist in his part, and baseless. The same with the underclass. As for the rest, the left, liberals, and Democrats are strongly in favor of the “drug war”. Obama has been waging it more relentlessly than Bush.

  2. Here is just one example:

    http://www.mpp.org/media/press-releases/obama-administration.html

    “Obama Administration Increases Drug War Spending

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — Earlier today, the Obama administration released its annual National Drug Control Strategy, detailing the methods and budgets planned to combat drug use for fiscal year 2013. The report stresses that more resources need to be spent on addiction treatment and prevention, and that an enforcement-centric “war on drugs” is unworkable. The report shows, however, that budget allocations for traditional law enforcement methods could increase by hundreds of millions of dollars, including domestic military operations. Government data from previous years have shown no connection between drug-arrest rates and drug-use rates.”

    I don't think that Jersey got anything correct in his statement beyond spelling and grammar.

  3. dmarks, you sleazy idiot, are you saying that because Obama, the President of the United States, is doing his job under the law, therefore the drug war is a good thing? Are you retarded?

  4. “dmarks, you sleazy idiot…”

    No, I am pointing out the fact that contradict your “Republicans” claim. Starting with how the Democrats have cranked up the drug war since Bush left office.

    ” Are you retarded?”

    We know you love to bash the mentally disabled, just as you defend to the death calling gay people “fa**ots”

    Being politically correct is one thing. Vicious hate speech is another. And you engage in the latter. You are more bigoted than most conservative bigots I run across.

    And once we dismiss your distracting bigotry, we get back to the logical and cognitive dissonance in your argument. When the Republicans engage in the drug war, you smear than with a tired racial conspiracy theory. When the Democrats ramp up this war, you say they are only doing their job.

    I myself have come to be opposed to the drug war. However, unlike you, I look at facts, not silly partisan bias.

  5. Jersey….going to have to side with dmarks on this one. You wrote: “The Republicans need the police state and the war on drugs to suppress minority and underclass voting.”

    Yet the very same paradigm occurs under Democratic leadership, without abatement.

  6. Are you dizzy yet from talking in circles? The current Administration hasn't abated the misnomered “war on drugs” an iota. How is this the fault of the Republicans?

  9. CI, get real. The Left does not want the war on drugs, is not for the war on drugs, would love to see it end. We do not have the political power to make that happen, regardless of who's in office. I'm sure, if he could, Obama would be rid of it too, but he can't. Why? BECAUSE THE RIGHT DEMANDS IT.

  10. dmarks, for whatever reason, very often, you make some of the sleaziest, most spurious, specious arguments I've ever read. Idiotic nonsense like “Obama is tough on crime, therefore the Police State is supported by the Left.” It's so sleazy, so stupid, so childish. My God man, make grown-up arguments!

  11. Jersey: At least you used the word “Reason”. Which was entirely lacking in your statement. You didn't think it through.

    There is nothing “idiotic” and everything logical in saying that the left-wing President, strongly supported by the Left has sharply accelerated the drug war. Therefore in this aspect, the Police State is most certainly supported by the Left.

    There are other ways the police state is supported by the Left. The hard Left favors cops coming and stealing people's guns.

    You should check out Libertarians: they are honestly a lot more against police state abuses than others.

    Time to can it with the “sleazy” type insults. It's clear to all reading this that you start to sputter like this when you lose the argument, and badly.

  12. Jersey's angry, fact free claim: “I'm sure, if he could, Obama would be rid of it too, but he can't. Why? BECAUSE THE RIGHT DEMANDS IT.”

    The truth? Obama has CHOSEN to accelerate the drug war. He has gone out of his way to, of his own volition.

    The idea that he is forced to is ludicrous. This is the same Obama who arrogantly ignores the separation of powers when he wants: when it comes to using bribes to ram through his attempt to take away people's health care, to “executive orders” to make an end run around unpopular policies being blocked … to refusing to enforce immigration laws

    If Obama would be “rid of it”, he would break the law to push his agenda as he has done on some many other things. Instead, he has used his executive discretion to ramp it up.

    CI said: “Yep…that's exactly what I would say if I wanted to ignore this Administrations directives to the DOJ, on drug policy.”

    yeah… Jersey makes perfect sense, as long as you ignore what the Left (and its leader) is doing and saying on this

  13. CI said: “Of course POTUS doesn't make the laws”

    Well, he does. In the form of executive orders. Which are an end-run around Constitutional process and powers. He does this in a dictatorial fashion to cover up for the fact that his poorly thought out, and unpopular policies won't fly otherwise.

  15. That's not true by any stretch of the imagination, CI. Where do you come up with such a loony assertion? The vast majority of the police state is state and local. In your entire life, you are likely to never once come in contact with federal law enforce. You most certainly, at some point, come in contact with your state and local police. I know you believe all this psychotic anti-federal gov't nonsense, but please don't confuse utterly different scopes.

  16. Have you struggled long with reading comprehension? I tempered dmarks comment of the police state, and added the statement of the surveillance state – separate [for my comment at least] from the police state. The surveillance state is almost exclusively at the national level; directed by the administration and the federal agencies.

    But to your assertion…I work in the intelligence community, and I can categorically state that you re blissfully unaware of the close collaboration in this current era…between federal agencies and state/local law enforcement. Look into the scope of the regional fusion centers. Don't pretend to tell me who I'm going to come into contact with, as you know nothing about me.

    Finally, your attempt to paint me as an anti-government kook, says everything about the exasperation of your argument…as my postings here show nothing of the sort. I simply believe in a federal government limited by the Constitution….as opposed to one where they turn rights unto privileges, in order to regulate and tax beyond it's enumerated powers.

  17. That isn't true of the “surveillance state” either. And your particulars are not relevant, as what I said is true of the vast majority of the populace. It doesn't make any level of this a good thing, either. But when it comes to the police state, the majority of it is state and local, and the majority of interactions with it are state and local. That the federal government is capable of more interference in our lives, yet does not engage in it, proves they are more accountable than the state and local entities.

  25. More facts: As with the Left at the very top of leadership in this country increasing the “police state” (see Clinton's proposal to significantly increase the number of local police by adding many more who would be paid and controlled Federally, the state and local “police state” is pushed by state and local left-wing leaders as well.

    Consider NYC's left-wing mayor Bill De Blasio also.
