VL - did you see this? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/04/25/obama-marijuana-raids-rolling-stone_n_1451744.htmlJust gaze upon these quotes in awe:"What I specifically said was that we were not going to prioritize prosecutions of persons who are using medical marijuana," Obama said. "I never made a commitment that somehow we were going to give carte blanche to large-scale producers and operators of marijuana -- and the reason is, because it's against federal law."The president continued: "I can't nullify congressional law. I can't ask the Justice Department to say, 'Ignore completely a federal law that's on the books.' --Come on, VL! He can't just ignore laws on the books! Except for the laws against bankers committing unprecedented amounts of fraud, leading to a global financial collapse. Except for the laws against creating and implementing a torture regime. Except for the laws against wiretapping. Except for the constitutional prohibition on depriving citizens of their lives without due process.In other words, Obama loves to ignore laws that are on the books when it comes to the elite (including himself). But hey! You pot dealers! You're under arrest! Same thing goes for you, you whistleblowers exposing government misdeeds!What a bastard.
Great comment, Joe, thanks!
