People had a more comfortable relationship with reality back then

Nowadays people gather "facts" to support their view, rather than changing their view to match the facts.


Oh, I think it's REAL easy to get people to change their views. Have a look at this: http://kritterbox.com/showthread.php?tid...ht=Sheeple

It isn't hard to get me to change my views - but you need reliable information from FOX, CNS, The Weekly Standard or some other reputable news organization and not the dishonest liberal LSM.

The methods used in the article don't work on me because I won't defend a position I don't believe in.

I don't think anybody on this forum will have their opinions swayed very easily. Especially by MSM chuckle.gif

What is nice about this forum is that making conservative statements does not result in bludgeoning by a blue state flash mob.

There are some liberals on this site that also have strongly held beliefs and are very sincere and that is ok too.

Another Constant

The people who seek these ever increasing laws
actually believe in their minds

that progress and a better society are reached in this manner

A NATION OF LAWS IS A MORE CIVILIZED NATION

If you want to see a Civilized nation turn into an Animal Kingdom

follow the above stupid statement

I'll explain in another post


Cynical you are insightful.

How about requiring a sunset provision in all laws - and when they expire they must be rewritten - not just reauthorized? If congress can't pass a budget - they couldn't possibly have the capacity to keep all the current statutes active.

Here in Finland they radically changed the pot laws by removing one single three letter word.

Previously: Doctors can not prescribe marijuana...
Currently: Doctors can prescribe marijuana...

Actually there wasn't much protesting or petitioning leading up to that. Seems like there's some common sense still among politicians here.

Both law enforcement and health authorities expect marijuana to be legalized within 10 years.

There maybe, not here.

This is how our western (well mostly backward Canadian) politicians deal with the marijuana issue.

On paper, yes.

Still a long, hard struggle for anyone who wants it.
Most doctors will act as if they've never heard of
such a thing.
