Government Priorities
(with comments)

This country has lots of problems, and this is how the federal government uses its resources: Feds to target newspapers, radio for pot ads.

Federal prosecutors are preparing to target newspapers, radio stations and other media outlets that advertise medical marijuana dispensaries in California, another escalation in the Obama administration's newly invigorated war against the state's pot industry.

Remember his campaign promises? For example:

“I don’t think that should be a top priority of us, raiding people who are using ... medical marijuana. With all the things we’ve got to worry about, and our Justice Department should be doing, that probably shouldn’t be a high priority.” — June 2, 2007, town hall meeting in Laconia, New Hampshire.

That was before he realized how much money Big Pharma has to offer people like him. It's just like the wars. Before he was elected, he didn't fully understand the old military industrial complex thing.

    J-Walk, I like your ironic spin. Obama was playing the middle at that point, waiting for the time to strike for the money that he knew was awaiting. He's not stupid, nether have been the rest since IKE.
    And remember DDE's farewell address, MIC.

    One of many disappointments. So our choices for 2012 are Obama or Romney/Christie, Perry/Bachmann, Cain/Rubio, or whatever other godawful combination the Republicans come up with.

    Not a hard decision when viewed in that respect.

    Bobby, ever heard of Ron Paul? All the regulars that are given to us for voting on have sucked since the 70's or before my time. I voted for Anderson once, Perot twice and Nadar once. If we don't elect a President for the people soon, we may collapse an chance a Phoenix Hitler out of desperation.

    Yes.

    I think he has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that electing some new face to the office is going to change anything.

    Curtis called it -- Obama didn't mean LOTS of what he said during his campaign.

    Conservatives knew it, too - that Obama was throwing out impossibilities.

    But - lots of chumps bought Obama's lies, hook line and sinker.

    I hope enough of them have had enough and jump ship before the next election.

    And lots of people voted for him because they didn't like the opposition party's candidates, who were absolutely bonkers.

    Yep, I'd have to agree with deciBelcat
    Although I didn't vote for Obama,
    I couldn't vote for McCain
