TGIF- December 27, 2019

December 27, 2019

Law or tyranny?

We understand why the President has commanded that anyone under 21 be prohibited from buying tobacco products. We also understand why no 20 year old Marine in Kandahar is going to pay a damn bit of attention to him.

The problems with illicit THC vaping products are real and dangerous, even though the problems are being caused by the users themselves, and not the products, at least not as they were originally manufactured. If these users want to use pot, then move to a state where it is legal.

This is a case of throwing the baby out with the bath water. OK, you don’t think anyone should smoke.  That’s your right, but it is equally the right of those who choose to, to do so. Many don’t think anyone should drink either, but that too is an individual choice.

We personally don’t happen to think anyone should own reptiles as pets, since they are often not cared for properly (and they really aren’t very cuddly and we’ve never heard one purr), but that doesn’t give us the right to tell you whether you should own a boa constrictor or to take yours away from you. .

As someone once said, everything in moderation, and that goes for laws too.

Did Mayor Pete just make a Clinton-sized gaffe?

We hear that Iowa is a pretty conservative state, which makes us wonder just how popular Mayor Pete’s “all drug possession should be decriminalized” stance will go over there.

Actually, as is often the case, there’s a bit more to his statement than that, as the hyperlinked article explains, but you know that those six words will be all anyone sees.

Can you say “deplorables?”

Democrats good at pedal target practice.

On top of Mayor Pete’s possible faux pas, we now have Lizzie’s own relatives showing displeasure with her description of her father as a janitor, (they prefer “maintenance man”)

What is it with Ms. Warren? She seems to have a rare talent for making her family over in whatever way she thinks will make her look better to voters.

Sorry, old girl. Even you can’t do the impossible.
