OpEd: ADULTS Created the VIOLENCE!




theodore  M I R A L D I.

There are ways to help limit these terrible shootings. Many laws are already on the books that must be adhered to first. Piling on more laws that become arbitrary enforcement policies just aren't working any longer. We now have wide swathes of the population that lack the intellectual integrity to be promoting policy.

Now, not only do we not trust the government, but we lack the trust in each other as well.

My question is, Where are the Adults when children of high school age have become so disenchanted that they seek to harm each other? How far down the rabbit hole has our culture gone? We are a broken nation, that now spends more time debating Illegal Immigration, than the safety of our own children. Gun control only comes up after an event like this. Where was the echo from the adults when children in minorities are being killed every day for years in some of our most violent cities?

Our Representatives are too busy collecting cash from donors and not tackling real problems affecting our communities.

Where is the echo regarding violence portrayed in children's games, movies and rampant bullying in our schools and streets? The world is filled with Hypocrites who seem to be running our nation.

First we must fix the Culture of Violence that the ADULTS have CREATED.

Only then will our Children be Safe.

OpEd: Hellfire & Hate, Children of POVERTY




theodore  M I R A L D I.

There is no Novelty in Minority Community Crime, Civil Disorder or Poverty. There are those caught in the trap of systemic poverty orchestrated by Democrat Politicians from California to New York. Imprisoned in systems so complicated Courts need to appoint Guardians, Legal Services, a host of  Social Agencies and NGO's just to keep more people off the streets. 

Approximately 15 million children in the U.S. live in Poverty. That's roughly 21% of all children. Most come from low income families who have very few options. 

This has been Democratic Policy since LBJ's Great Society. Poverty and Public Assistance are synonymous with Urban America

Just ask anyone living in Public Housing or seedy neighborhoods throughout the city. Living in Hell and Hating every second. Existing on Food Stamps and Rent Subsidies, to afraid to go out after dark for fear of being Shot, Robbed, or Beaten. 

American Citizens of all colors and creeds packed into Substandard Housing with no Heat,  Hot Water or Basic Security. Infested by Rats, Roaches and Mold. Living with Death, Drugs and Gangs have crushed the Spirit of minority communities across the country. Once great prosperous cities huddled behind closed doors and Forced Illiteracy, reared in Violence by governments who care more about the plight of Illegals than Citizen safety.

I'm a New Yorker, and the city of my childhood has been turned upside-down by Thieves, Charlatans and Bullies. Add Corrupt Politicians to the mix, and you have the recipe baked in Detroit, Baltimore, and Los Angeles. If  New York continues to overtax those who do work,  and those who believe in charity, New York will suffer the same fate. 

Charity starts at Home, for American Citizens who have sometimes struggled for generations. The Urban Phenomena of the Loudest, most Brash and least qualified are filling the Halls of Local, State, and yes, now Federal Government Agencies. The Nepotists, Anarchists,  Narcissists, Socialists and just Dumb are making decisions, not for You, but for Themselves. Just ask Americans if their lives improved under Obama's Anti-American tutelage.

If you worked within the government on any level, your life got better, for the rest of us, not so much.

The import of millions of Non-English Speaking Illegal Immigrants is destroying the safety net for many who have worked and contributed. Nearly 70% of Immigrants from Mexico are on some sort of Public Assistance. How does that square with our Vets waiting in line for Health-Care and Social Benefits thinly stretched across a new population of Welfare Recipients. How does that impact poor American kids?

Poor Americans now compete for low level, entry jobs with an army of Immigrants who will work for far less than the minimum wage. And yet, these are the people that your community leaders support. DACA...DACA...DACA is the charge of a party, that has not only lost control of Power, but of its Patriotic Duties to American Citizens. 

The misguided priorities of those duly elected by Citizens need to get it straight once and for all.

We demand your attention NOW!

Forget the Illegals for a moment, the party of Obama showed them just how important they were after his election. No Immigration Reform and Illegal Executive Orders that put a target on their lives. 

We have some serious problems that need immediate attention. Our children are nearly illiterate. Our families are broken apart by government interference. Our Culture of Exceptionalism has been brought to its knees.

There's Evil in our Classrooms, and we have become Too Stupid to see it!

Return our Nation to RATIONAL Norms! 

Hellfire and Hate has replaced Socialized Integrated Behavior.

Americans have Enormous Hearts helping those in need.

Isn't it time we Help Our Own.

OpEd: 44 The SABOTEUR

Image result for obama saboteur


theodore  M I R A L D I.

The fiasco now going on regarding unmasking citizens and the Obama Paranoia is keeping our nation teetering on Revolution. It might appear the Revolution to change minds to accept an upside down fiction, that Obama and his cronies were ethical and on the side of the common good. 

Yet, around every story lurks the Stain that Obama has left behind.

From Dead Diplomats to Spying on American Citizens, and most recently Spying on the opposing party during a Presidential Election.

Some noticed from his sketchy past and associations that Obama was no more than a creation of positive imaging over a flawed reality. The close family members that espoused Communal Thinking and Government Control. The African connection vilifying Western Colonialism and American Exceptionalism. 

Obama was never the Son of a Patriot, but the result of Hatred and Deception.

And so we find our Institutions, and Venerable Justice shattered by his hand picked enablers, focusing on the dissemination of Lies and Corruption worthy of a Saboteur. What's troubling is the audacity and arrogance to continue to speak out in view of the numerous revelations regarding Institutionally wide Corruption at the Highest Levels against the systems that protect us. 

We may have gone too far down the Rabbit Hole to correct these abuses without a Drastic Correction. I have always maintained that forceful examples be made of those who have used our Trust to Manipulate the Centers of Power in this nation. 

Some MUST Go to Jail!

If not, this Cancer that now disrupts nearly every level of America's Liberties and Freedoms will be lost. We must collect our means and show Americans and the World, 

Freedom is NOT Free!

OpEd: TRAITORS, TYRANTS, & SAVIORS



theodore M I R A L D I.

So America, this may be the worst assault on our Constitutional Republic since the Civil War. And just like the Civil the match that has lit this fire is Culture and its ability to take once sane people and allow the Evils of a Bad Idea to get the upper hand.

That upper hand didn't just start with Obama and his  perceived victims, it's been brewing with the liberal movement since the 60's with the Communists and Socialists movements of the McCarthy era. Little Joe scorned by the Left was giving us a preview of what was to come. The vilification of Patriotism was spawned and has crept into our Living Rooms, Board Rooms, and our places of Worship.

Power in the hands of Bad Actors will always yield some half baked narrative that doesn't stand up to Common Sense. Mind you, after thousands of years of Social Evolution and its necessary corrections, we are now on the precipice of Social Upheaval.

This is now a MACRO problem, not only for the West, but Worldwide. I'm not talking extinction yet.
Unfortunately though, we may be headed in that direction. And the signs are right here, in the nation that has been the beacon of Freedom and Justice.

First we have the Traitors.

And the list is long, from everyday people to the high and mighty. People willing to give-up their beliefs because of peer and government pressures. Fearful their everyday lives would be shattered without compliance. Trading their beliefs for some over-analyzed psycho babble outsiders says you must adhere to or else.

The powers that be in your local community may be on the wrong track, and it's the responsibility of the sane and logical to point out the inconsistencies and the abnormalities of their narratives. Not to do so, has already yielded the festering sore of irrational behaviors upsetting the Natural Order of Life. Giving up your responsibility makes you part of the problem, therefore a Traitor to your own Heart of Well Being. Resisting Evil makes this a better world for all.

The Tyrants.

Somehow lots of people from many stratas of the community have gotten away with outrageous behaviors that have recruited adherents over several decades. We call them Sub-Cultures no longer, the policies of Forced Diversity forbids us from analyzing and forming opinions on the negativity released into our Culture. Many would agree that the Minority seems to have too much say and power within the Culture at the moment. Praising Dysfunctional Behaviors by some communities has not made one bit of difference to those communities. The systemic problems they face are solely created by behaviors associated with Tribalism and Group Think.  Are the Bullies are winning?

Forget the Family, Disregard the Law, Destroy Property and the Livelihood of Strangers just because you can, is indicative of a failing Society that has been told to be tolerant to those who have no tolerance. The perfect example are the millions of Illegal Immigrants living within our communities.

Not grateful that Citizens have allowed them to stay, they have the temerity to demand rights and services that only Citizens are entitled to receive. The lack of Humility and Personal Responsibility are replaced with the arrogance of Totalitarian mentality that forever fails its adherents. Will they ever learn?

The Saviors.

Look no further than your hand held Flat Screen Gizmo glued to the side of your heads. The voices being emitted are your Saviors. The unfiltered Warbling of the Click Bait Media and Pundits extolling the virtues of Bad Narratives, when in Truth you're plugged in to the Resistance.

Whatever it may be ... Resist! Honoring your Mother and Father, God, Country and the Flag. These are the people that have brought you high taxes and Social Unrest. The Obamas, Maxine Waters, Pelosis, and Schumers. After 8 years of doubling the National Debt to 20 Trillion Dollars, where are the Bridges, Airports, Roadways and Rail Systems? The nation went backward on every Socio-Economic Data point under Obama. It's sheer fantasy to attribute any recent progress to the Left Wing Dreamers. Anyone who tells you, if only we could spend all of your money for a result in the not-so-near future, you are listening to a LIAR. Or that 20 million people here Illegally is Good for the Economy. We need to get our home in order. Taking care of American Citizens is why we have a government!

Legal Actions through Organized Policy Debate always yields Measurable Results. No-one gets everything they want. Some just won't accept it!

The Dreams of Americans are what make this Country Great!

Beware of the Traitors, Tyrants & Saviors!

OpEd: Censoring Our POLITICAL & MORAL Conscience

Image result for censorship

theodore M I R A L D I.

censorship
ˈsensərSHip/
noun
  1. 1.
    the suppression or prohibition of any parts of books, films, news, etc. that are considered obscene, politically unacceptable, or a threat to security.


*morally corrupt our children

*protection of our society

Censoring Free Speech  and the Dissemination of Information is a tool used Worldwide by Despots and Demagogues. It is a Founding Belief of our Nation, that a well informed Public makes for Good Citizens. 

What we are experiencing today in our nation is a fundamental breakdown of Trust between Government, the Media and our Citizens. Trust in our Institutions is the Key Element, to not only personal safety, but the safety of our nation in an ever growing Dangerous World. After all, who will be making the decisions?

 Today's events may be clearing the way to out the Dark Negative Forces within our Institutions who for the glory of the self would sacrifice what so many have fought and died for...FREEDOM.

We are in the struggle of a life-time trying to uncover the Massive Corruption that has permeated the minds of Public Servants and Political Operatives, not only through the Obama Administration, but beyond. What may be accepted as Analysis and Logic is Hyperbole and plain Lies.. Not a day goes by that Public Officials make erroneous statements for the sole purpose of exercising power. Their power, not ours. 

The recently release MEMO hopefully will rout out the negative forces that wish to Destroy our Nation. No matter what Institution they reside, there are wolves in sheep clothing ready to take away
your Freedoms. These are the very forces our Founding Fathers warned us against. The Charlatans, Tyrants and Traitors who will greet you with a smile while stripping away your Liberty. 

All in the name of Democracy!

****

The Conservative Position
The conservative view on the issue of censorship is that free speech can be abused when it undermines traditional values and social stability, and in some cases censorship is justifiable. The main arguments for the conservative position are these:
            1. Protecting children: Censorship shelters children from ideas that may damage their moral development. One of the oldest and most universal human values is that of parents educating their children. We do this as a matter of instinct as well as from a sense of moral obligation. The guiding rule of all parenting is to do what is best for one’s children, and we recognize that parents have great latitude in determining for themselves what is best. Parents shape not only the education, careers and hobbies of their offspring, but, more importantly, their moral, political and religious views. When the free speech of others runs wild, this intrudes on parents’ abilities to morally educate their children. The most intrusive and harmful expressions of others may justifiably be censored. A criticism of this argument is that too often the claim to protect our children is used as an excuse to impose one’s value system on all of society. Yes, we have a right and responsibility to see to the moral development of our children, but this should not hijack something as important as free speech. Parents can effectively protect their children from harmful ideas without censoring the expression of views that are of interest to adults.

            2. Governmental stability: Censorship helps stabilize society by preventing the erosion of governmental authority. All the freedoms that we have and the activities that we engage in are only possible because we have a stable government and a stable society. Without this stability we would lapse into a state of nature where our lives would be, as Thomas Hobbes says, “solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short” (Leviathan, 13). It is easy for us to take governmental and social stability for granted, and assume that it will always be that way. But even a cursory look at history will show that the risks of social upheaval are much greater than we think. Some threats to governmental stability cannot be anticipated or prevented, such as attacks from hostile countries. But the threats that we bring on ourselves through socially destabilizing speech is another matter. We can foresee and stop these, especially the worst kinds. A criticism of this argument is that censorship in the name of governmental stability can easily lead to governmental tyranny. By censoring free expression, particularly the type that is critical of the government itself, the government puts itself in a position where it can do what it wants without hindrance of public opposition. Free speech is an important check and balance against a government that extends its authority too far.

            3. Traditional values and Offense: The most offensive expressions are those that attack traditional values, and censorship protects those values from attack. Every society has a bedrock of values—core beliefs and moral codes that regulate how we behave and interact with each other. We internalize basic values, they become an integral part of our identities, and an attack on one of these values quickly translates into an attack on us personally. While there may always be room for critique of traditional values, the time-honored place that they hold within society demands that such critiques be done diplomatically. The most harmful and offensive ones should be censored. A criticism of this argument is that sometimes it takes harsh and even offensive expressions to make society re-examine their most ingrained traditional values. Traditional values during the Middle Ages included a rigid class distinction between wealthy aristocrats and impoverished peasants. It forced adherence to a single religious institution under penalty of torture and death. Even today, not all traditional ideas are good ones, and sometimes it takes dramatic expressions of ideas to shake people from their entrenched views to even consider alternatives. This will inevitably cause offense, but it is an offense that has justification.

The Liberal Position
The liberal view on the issue of censorship is that free speech should be permitted even when it attacks traditional values, and in few cases is censorship justifiable. The main arguments for the liberal position are these:

            1. Democracy: Censorship is damaging to the democratic process since, by silencing some ideas, it thereby favors others. Often the favored ideas are defended by those who have the most money or power to advance their views; their ideas, then are perpetuated at the expense of society’s most underprivileged people. Censorship is then an act of intolerance towards those whose voices need to be heard the most. The result is oligarchy, which is rule by a small elite group, and not democracy. For democracy to function properly, we need an environment in which the broadest range of ideas can be freely expressed and debated. A criticism of this argument is that the expression of some ideas are irrelevant to the democratic process, particularly ideas that are most harmful or offensive. The machinery of democracy will continue running just fine even if pornography and hate speech are censored. Democracy indeed requires a wide spectrum of expressed ideas, but not a 100% open environment of expression.

            2. Discovering truth: Censorship undermines the effort to discover new truths and expand society’s knowledge base. The discovery of both moral truths and scientific truths results from trial and error. To push the boundaries of knowledge we need to explore new ideas, and very often these are unpopular. The history of science is largely a history of new ideas that were ridiculed when first proposed, but later proved to be true, such as the germ theory of disease, the theory of relativity, and the theory of continental plates. Social ideas too, such as gender and racial equality, humane treatment of prisoners, and due process of law, originally faced considerable obstacles. Through free and open debate, the best ideas will then be the ones that have adapted to and survived the critical scrutiny of those with competing interests. The pursuit of all knowledge is a painful process since it forces us to re-evaluate old ideas that we have become comfortable with. Censorship surrenders to old ideas without even allowing an opportunity to consider rival ideas that may prove true. A criticism of this argument is that some speech can cause great harm, and these harms outweigh the benefits of the free expression of these ideas. Hate speech harms the targeted minority groups. Gratuitous violence in television, film and music encourages violence in the real world. Pornography has a harmful impact on society’s perception of women. These cater to our basest human inclinations, and it is difficult to see where a higher truth might be discovered through an unrestricted outpouring of these views and images.

            3. Personal autonomy: Censorship restricts our natural inclination towards self-expression, and strikes at the heart of our human identity. One of the defining features of human nature is our capacity to express our opinions, to question the views of others and offer our own unique perspectives. This is an especially important element for one’s sense of individual uniqueness, when society expects everyone to think and behave in fixed and predictable ways. We cannot help but express ourselves, and governments shouldn’t try to stop us. A criticism of this argument is that personal restraint is as important to one’s identity as is self-expression. We have many spontaneous urges and impulses, such as towards eating, procreation, anger, vengeance, jealousy; in each case we learn to restrain ourselves. If we did not, we would be imprisoned or, worse yet, killed by others in conflicts that we have started. Why should self-expression be any different? It is just one more natural inclination that contributes to mature human character when exercised properly, but can distort our true humanity when abusedthroughunrestraint.Source: https://www.utm.edu/staff/jfieser/class/160/4-censorship.htm

OpEd: Obama, DEVIL in The Corruption DETAILS

Image result for obama devil


theodore
 M I R A L D I.


Before we run too far off course with regard to the Massive Corruption throughout our Institutions, let's take a look at its architect...Barack Hussein Obama.

Barack Obama, our One and Only Affirmative Action President in History was woefully unqualified using the most generous variables, to be elected to our Nations Highest Office.

Obama graduated a Political Science Major with No Honors. As Editor of the Harvard Law Review Obama never wrote a bylined piece as editor. Obama never started, or owned a business, therefore had no business acumen to get the nation out of the recession. It's why he surrounded himself with academics and minorities, not for diversity, but to never be challenged, knowing his soaring oratory skills were the sum of his skills and dazzled Intellectuals.

Barack's sketchy origins seems more like a table-top novel than a profile in character. His association with Terrorists and Venom spewing, Anti-White, Anti-American Rev. Wright,  his moral counsel for  over 20 years of his young life.

Obama was just another shake-down artist from Chicago. Extorting capital from businesses who didn't fold under his racist pressures.


His Family riddled with Communist and Socialist Narratives, became his Bible of Disruption.

Barack Obama bought peoples silence through Subversion, Tribalism and Racism. It became evident by his one sided comments throughout his tenure that Obama was a BULLY.

Smart enough to fool Middle America for the vote,. not smart enough to Institute Policy that worked for the country as a whole.

Obama likely never had an Original Policy Chop in his life. He used the thoughts of others tired policy initiatives.

Let's be clear Obama was weened by one the the Most Corrupt, Local and State Governments in the nation.

In this knowledge, he seeded our Institutions with Sycophants, Bootlickers, Flunkies, Lackeys and Stooges who willingly did his dirty work.

So, after 8 years of Government employees who kissed up to gain advantage, they are now faced with Investigations and possible Criminal Indictments. Never expecting to be out of power, expecting a Clinton win.

In their hysteria, thinking Hillary would win in 2016 they become arrogant with power and became sloppy.

So here we are, a corrupt Special Counsel, a Corrupt FBI and a Politically Motivated DOJ, that did everything possible to let Hillary go free in lieu of profound evidence she committed, serious breaches in security concerning Classified Information.

This was the Constitutional Lawyer who used the Constitution against our Nation, and its People!

The Role Model for all of these miss-guided Officials...

OpEd: Democrats DACA DYSFUNCTION Hurts American Citizens

Image result for DACA dysfunction


theodore  M I R A L D I.

The United States was nearly dealt a Fatal Blow by the Reign of Obama and the Corruption of the Democrat Party. The Democrat Party is now a cult of zealots who would likely walk off a bridge if told to do so. This is the New World Order in full bloom. Big Brother and Despotic Rule.

No matter what evidence of hardship they impose upon the Citizens of this nation, they perceive themselves as some Higher Power being run by Illegal Immigrants, Socialists and Communist inspired Ideologues.

After Centuries of well meaning individuals passing the torch of the most successful nation in World History, we are now being dictated to by non-citizens and their one man, one vote fantasy. Our Founding Fathers and generations of Real Intellectuals foresaw the results of Power and Iron Fist Rule. Their wisdom has fathered a nation riddled with checks and balances to prevent exactly what is happening today.

But not so fast say the Democrats, the Constitution is a Living Document, and yes, it lives through Constitutional Amendments voted by the Majority of Congress, not by Illegal Aliens, and Miscreant Moralists.

Whether you believe it or not, millions of Americans are suffering from the lack of belief in facts.
Propagandized to focus on themselves, and the desire to satisfy a need to be right against all logic.

Half of our nation wants to validate ill conceived policy and personal behaviors at the cost of even tempered citizens who also believe in Freedom and Justice. These divides have existed throughout time.

They are using the same tactics that have been proven failures. In a community of the ill informed, and under socialized anything that feels good must be Truth. Unfortunately some-times Truth
is Painful and requires Hard Work and Commitment to overcome.

The recent circus regarding the Continuing Resolution is just another folly by the same actors. This Bully Style political narrative is always one-sided and fundamentally flawed.

No matter how this recent Resist Movement concludes, the President had nothing to do with it. The mean spirited Left only wants to inflict pain on the Republican Party for the 2018 election. They have no basis for not voting for Funding the Government. They oppose nothing in the Bill. They just want to add a slew of Social Issues that they themselves have done nothing to fix.

Once again, they prove that any life style, gender issue, race bluster, and now DACA will allow them to sever the cord of their elected responsibilities to run the country. Once again the Democrats feel Illegal Aliens are more important than the people who pay their salaries.

And once again they throw the nation into uncertainty for purely Political Gain.

OpEd: The Progressive Dichotomy on LIFE, DEATH and Human RIGHTS

Image result for respect

theodore  M I R A L D I.

Evil narratives come with a variety of  Intents. The sleight of hand, the miss-direction, and the untold truth are just a few ways to overcome Honesty, Integrity and Ethical Behaviors.

Believe or not, even some Theological Philosophies acknowledge, and condone Lying to their adversaries to advance a false narrative for the sole Purpose of Deception.

Western Culture has come to the Crossroad between Sanity and Insanity. Words and Actions mean whatever some may decide, based solely on their Political or Personal Advantage. Playing fairly has turned to winning at all costs. Does this constitute good human behaviors? 

They are not small, or insignificant matters that these new narratives are being applied to. Life and Death is as visceral as it gets. The use of Science to extend the life of the rich,  while the consumption of Abortion, and Morning After Pills are the Common Insults.

These are the Implemented Policies of the Progressives, the Planned Parenthoods better suited to Planned Murder. Claims of Harassment and Abuse, while the Icons of  society walk around half naked to sell their wares to the public for cash. This hypocrisy has assisted Evil Doers throughout our History. The Fallen President, lecturing us on TV regarding his sexual behaviors, the dress and the long line of accusers.

You know Evil when a commonly accepted Law no longer makes sense. Just take Black Lives Matters as an example, Blacks murder Blacks at a rate that far exceeds any other ethnic group, yet they march for a fake narrative that doesn't fix the systemic problem of Black on Black Crime.

Failing schools and family life are unimportant. The cause requires some inward inspection, something Evil never will allow. 

The same applies to the Women's Choice Movement, we used to Protect the rights of the Innocent at all costs. Now the cost of  Fetal Parts is openly discussed as an asset to be bartered. These are Progressive Policies and False Convictions that fly in the face of Normal, Descent Americans from every community in our nation. Why have we allowed the dissection of our moral purpose to suit
those who wish to destroy what's good and noble about our human behaviors?

The ad nauseum surrounding these issues never get resolved purposefully. The continuing hysteria leaves no air in the room for the voices of reason.

Take Immigration, no policy should impose sanctions on American Citizens to benefit those who are here Illegally. Immigration should almost always yield a positive effect on American Culture and Society. Lawmakers who threaten to shut down the government and impose the will of those living here unlawfully are committing an act of Sedition by diluting the Value of Citizenship. 

Using Taxpayer dollars to fund a special group of Invaders seems very UN-American to me.

OpEd: The POT Debate. When DOLLARS Mean MORE Than SENSE

Image result for pot users before and after


theodore M I R A L D I.


Several reports show that the usage of Marijuana is most prevalent in Free Western Nations. Only Iceland has a larger pot smoking population than the U.S.

UNODC

Iceland 18.3 %, United States 16.3% Nigeria 14.3%, Canada 12.7%, Chile 11.83%, France 11.1%. New Zealand 11%, Bermuda 10.9%, Australia 10.2%, Zambia 9.5%

Many of the supporters of Legalization use the same mantra, that countries with Legalized Pot usage have fewer Pot Heads. A dubious claim. Many of those countries are smaller homogeneous nations with less access and poor distribution. Let's not forget the margin of error of self reporting.

Those in less socialized nations don't go around admitting to smoking pot, or using drugs at all. Here's the rub, organized Nations or States are regulated by codified laws. Many poorer and smaller nations hardly waste their resources making sure someone's not rolling a joint in private. 

It's unfortunate that here in the United States Legalization has one basic priority...TAX DOLLARS. So, when you here the wagging tongues talk about its medicinal usage, and how keeping it out of the hands of those who really need it is an egregious act against humanity, a smile appears on the faces of those who smoke pot for recreation and nothing more.

Then there are those who like to conflate the consumption of Alcohol with Pot usage. No where in their arguments is their talk about how many people became alcoholics during Prohibition as oppose to those addicted since it was again legalized. Comparing highly addictive alcohol consumption to smoking pot is a weak argument. Never the less, regardless of Data collected in the past 4-5 decades of Pot smoking has shown, like it,

or not, Pot isn't the game changer that makes men out of children for those looking to escape reality. Many heavy pot smokers remain children Emotionally and Psychologically.

Heavy consumption of THC results in Physical and Psychological changes only now being revealed.

This isn't your Grandfather's Pot you're smoking. 

Today's THC levels in Pot have risen from 3-4% THC to as much as 27%. The long term effects of this level of THC on the young, still in their developmental stages are far from understood.

Are the Tax Dollars being generated worth more than your kids? 

Apparently so.

Most, if not all States proposing Legalization of Pot are run by the Tax and Spend Democrats. How unfortunate that give-aways now may be at the cost of futures never realized because of Pot, and other brain altering drugs. 

I implore anyone to show me a nation or community that has rampant drug use and is socially, economically successful. Or, is this another of Fundamentally Transforming America. The redustribution hopelessness to Americans under the guise of social change.

Every one needs to take a harder look at what long term effects may be coming down the road. 

An instant high is not worth the possibility of a diminished life.
