Dan, that sounds puzzling. I too enjoyed Vanderpool's meaty articles and his propensity to ask tough questions. Too bad. Any chance we might have him back someday? If not, I hope his successor is worthy. :(
Not to be a killjoy, but in Tucson EVERYBODY I saw, regardless of race, ethnicity, creed or color, dragged his/her butt while crossing the street. I think it's just a Western thing where car culture takes precedence over pedestrian culture. People out West aren't used to traveling by foot, so they do it gingerly and with caution. (Just my tongue-in-cheek theory, anyway.) Remember "Walking in L.A." by Missing Persons? I think it applies to AZ too.
The resultant of this oppressive regimes end is to discourage all but the poorest Mexican ( illegals ) and Blacks to ( and I might add ) Stupidly have kids in Tucson. Any and everybody else will send theirs to Private School, or Home School them. In the end, Everybody KNOWS, contrary to prevailing homosexual/pornographers dreams and views, La Raza will never mix with los Mallates, except outside of school and on the fringes of their neighborhoods. In otherwords, even after 60 years, Diss-segregation will continue to be needed.
In dealing with the rapidly shrinking middle class in America, the proposed solutions would be:
• Democrats—Try to help poor people move up and help those currently in the middle class to at least maintain their position.
I'm in the lower middle class, and the democrats haven't lifted a finger ( except for the middle one ) to help me. They AND the Republicans ( whoever the hell is in power ) have just taxed the hell outta my ass, and blown the money on ways and means of securing their oppressive domain.
Libertarians should be in power, because at least I would be able to get high and laugh at this pathetic excuse for a government for the people by the people.
the resistance is maintained and $upported by the Feds, ATF, DEA, ICE, etc whose members livings are bolstered by it, and by the Cartels in and outside of Mexico, and the criminal mafia groups here. They mostly inflame local opinion against use through School, and Church organizations to bring pressure on legislative representatives to continue prosecution and to NOT decriminalize. That keeps the cost of obtaining it High and more profit to suppliers because production costs are actually low.
95 dislikes between me and namvet. Not a bad weeks work. Does my heart good.
