    You would allow a step-parent to continue raping their step-child! You are sick!

    How many child rapists have had their crimes covered up with forcing their victim to have an abortion? How many underage girls victimized by statutory rape have covered their relationships with abortions?

    Killing children in the womb does not undo rape. Killing children in the womb will not fix the trauma of being raped. Killing children in the womb destroys evidence of wrong doing, and protects rapists.

    Takei clearly does not know what the word “innate” means.

    It’s complicated because she doesn’t want to be labeled a liar.

    She’s a liar, pants on fire.

    Why on God’s green earth would there be transgendered children?

    Then recognize the flaws in their argument, and the bastard the “legalization” process is going to produce; what they’re arguing for is not what you want.
    They do not want freedom, they are not arguing for freedom, they want to be high and they are going to further enshrine sin taxes into law.

    They want the government to dictate the legal market price, they want the government to license shops and growers and have ultimate control on supply. That is not freedom, and you should understand why it is a bad idea.

    @Way

    No, it really isn’t. They’re arguing that legalization will stop people from being made criminals, which is not the case at all.
    They’re arguing that it should be taxed and regulated like alcohol and tobacco, but if weed is as harmless (less detrimental than alcohol!) as is claimed, why are they wanting to tax it at all, instead of the 100-500% they’re proposing versus the approximately 10-30% that liquor and cigarettes are taxed?
    If a black market exists over $2.14 tax for 750ml of liquor and $1 per carton of cigarettes, why wouldn’t it exist for tens or hundreds of dollars of tax per ounce of pot?
    Finally, the arguments made are not about freedom, because they’re inviting tremendous government involvement and regulation.

    All that is left is a bunch of people wanting to pay the government to get high, and that’s a problem.

    Just because it isn’t in the news every single day doesn’t mean that it does not exist. Legalized, taxed, regulated alcohol and cigarettes still make criminals because the laws are onerous and people are not truly free. And there is still the federal government cracking down on these people… what happens when Uncle Sam finds people with a couple ounces of untaxed marijuana? Do you think they’ll get off easier or harder when it is “legalized?” With a larger regulatory body, do you think you will be freer or more enslaved to the government?

    They are flat out arguing that they’re willing to trade freedom in order to get high. That is not a libertarian position, that is a progressive position. Now take your Soma and stop questioning your benevolent government.

    “You are still talking about moonshine.”
    Yes. All of the problems that are going to be “solved” with legalization are not actually “solved.” They’re bad arguments.
    We’re still creating criminals because of $2.14 per 750ml bottle, and $1 per carton of cigarettes. That doesn’t change because something is legalized, taxed and regulated, and that certainly doesn’t buy us more freedom.

    @Gonzo
    “I think the laws of economics are actually in my favor, unless the government taxes it so heavily that it’s cheaper to buy illegal.”
    What do you mean “unless.” The advocates are asking for a big government solution, and while what they’re asking for only relates to the sale, you’d better believe the individual liberties will be quashed as well.
    Smell like body odor? Guess who now has probable cause to stop and interrogate you to see if you’re intoxicated. Wisps of white smoke coming out of your car window? Guess who is getting pulled over for a sobriety check. Your children find your legal stash and go to school high? Guess who takes your kids and who goes to jail.

    It took decades of research to fully understand the effects of cigarette smoke, then huge pushes to regulate that industry and individual liberties as well. Is that what freedom looks like to you?

  • [-2] June 2, 2015 at 10:37am

    @Gonzo

    The laws of economics dictate what individuals are willing to do legally and illegally. And at the proposed tax rates (using Colorado as a measuring stick), that leaves a tremendous amount of profit available. You wouldn’t think moonshine would be a problem with 750ml bottles of liquor being taxed federally at $2.14, yet it still exists.

    Legalization won’t make the cartels go away, just more difficult to prosecute.

    @Way
    You’re not making a positive argument, only a defensive one.

    The demand for illegal untaxed and unregulated moonshine is still not zero. The black market still does not check for IDs. There is an age gap between adulthood and legal consumption age, which still creates criminals.

    None of these problems are solved with legalization.

    You will also notice the proponents are arguing for more government involvement, not less. Police will still be required to combat the black market, and a new government agency will be created to regulate the legalized market.

    All while making it more difficult to teach children why it is a bad idea to just numb their pain, until they can become mature enough to recognize that truth themselves.

    @tread

    I am on topic. I don’t think the timing of this is a coincidence; seems news of this could’ve broke any time in the past 2 years but it happens now.

    I also appreciate the use of “your.”
    Glad to know I was responsible for electing him in Illinois 2 years before I was born.
    It appears the only sin to the left is hypocrisy, but that only applies when it’s someone on the right. I appreciate your intellectual honesty, now go back under your bridge you troll.

    Funny how when Hillary is in trouble we have this as a distraction…
    I didn’t realize Hastert was running for President!

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play. How about a nice game of chess?

    Human adults can give consent.
    Other animals are not held with the same regard as humans.

    That’s why this is such a big deal.

  • [4] April 23, 2015 at 11:15am

    Because process matters. I can get you to a utopia where there is no sickness, poor or idle, and everyone is happy. That end result is good, right? Well, to get there we need to euthanize all the ill, lazy and sad people.

    And since there is still a question of when person-hood begins (when in the life cycle of human beings should innate God-given rights and legal protections apply?), the morality of these experiments on embryonic human beings is suspect.

    And convince a judge or jury… try again.
