Re: “Danehy

Who could possibly disagree that death is a bitch? Consequently, I will simply add:

I see Captain Kirk listening to the Rolling Stones' "2000 Light Years from Home" and/or Pink Floyd's "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun."

Re: “Trumpcare Is Dead

Minor point, but details are important: Mitch McConnell is not the "Senate President." By virtue of the Constitution, that title belongs to Mike Pence. For succession purposes, it is important to note that the President Pro Tempore (usually "pro tem") of the Senate is Orrin Hatch. If Trump were to leave office, and somehow Pence and Paul Ryan were eliminated from the succession by resignation, impeachment, or death, the next person in line would be Orrin Hatch.

Brrr. I just had a cold chill at that possibility.

Mitch McConnell is the majority leader of the Senate.

Re: “Wage Rage

Yeah, lc69hunter, that's just what happened in Seattle when they raised the minimum wage there to $15.

OH, WAIT - just the opposite is true! With employees having more disposable income, business picked up, and unemployment went down. Inflation was not appreciably affected.

Check out what happened to the national economy when the minimum wage was increased from 40 cents an hour to 75 cents an hour in 1950. It was followed by a period in which the economy expanded, and unemployment went down.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

I would only add to Concerned Mom that she is joining Chris Christie in accusing cannabis consumers of lack of self control - this coming from a man who cannot control his weight even after a gastric bypass surgery. The hypocrisy, it burns!

Re: “Oregon Congressman: Legalize It!

Carpet Baggers - " forcing recreational marketing of marijuana" - is that anything like the "mandatory gay marriage" Ted Cruz kept talking about before Obergefell v. Hodges?

Frankly, the strongest argument supporting legalization of marijuana is the fact that the anti-legalization forces clearly believe that the only way they can win is by engaging in overt lies and outrageous distortions.
