Don't rely on the Washington Post. Why can't a conservative blogger or the Washington Examiner or Fox News investigate the story? What about the Wall Street Journal? The IRS story could be cracked, but no conservative has the balls to do it because they are so used to complaining about the MSM that they never consider they can take matters into their own hands.
Poor conservatives. Any unkind word from the press or a politician has them crying about being a victim. Apparently, they can actually be belittled into complete silence by criticism, similar to having a ball-gag over one's mouth. Wow. The cure for feeling powerless is to take action. Two reporters from The Washington Post unraveled Watergate, a fairly complex conspiracy. Take the IRS scandal. Are there no enterprising reporters from any of the several conservative papers or Fox News who can find incriminating against someone in the IRS scandal? Try something. Conservatives, I am afraid, are lazy, have no imagination, and just like to complain.
I read an interesting article on this subject some years ago by an author who went right to the source of many kidneys for sale. India. He found most sellers of their kidneys end up broke and sick after just a few years. Apparently, a lot of care and medication is required to keep yourself healthy after you have had a kidney removed. You might be able to appreciate that for the desperately poor in India, you might find yourself much, much worse off after having given up your kidney.
Pallen: You should consider leading the Black Outreach program for the Republican party. I am sure African Americans will be receptive to your ideas on the Stockholm Syndrome and how blacks are so dumb that they are easily brain washed.

Wow, Mr Kengor is taking all the fun out of freedom. When I finally left my fundamentalist upbringing at age 30, that was the first time I felt real freedom.
While all conservatives seem very unhappy with these "secular humanist", I must confess I have never met one nor even seen one on TV. This makes me believe that, like the American communist, they don't actually exist. Obama's foreign policy seems pretty poor and makes me think he would be a lousy poker player. However, he has one strength which is useful in this difficult times. He seems disinclined to starting wars. This is appreciated by the average person, but not the conservative.
Small tents don't win elections. Assuming an athiest organization can get on board with limited government and a balanced budget, why shouldn't they be part of the republican family? Does everybody have to agree on everything?
George W. Bush signed the light bulb legislation, not a liberal.
Apparently one can be any type of societal deviant but be considered a good considerative if one parrots the appropriate conservative talking points. Now Ted Nugent is said to have crapped in his pants for a solid week to get out of the Vietnam draft. I can't say if that is true or not, but he does have 8 children by 6 different women. Does that sound conservative to anyone? Then there is Donald Trump. The punch line to every comedian's joke. And those guys with the long beards? Can't conservatives find any heroes that aren't jokes and buffoons?

What Are They Smoking in Colorado?

The use of tobacco was so widespread in America that it was once thought to be impossible to curb it. And yet tobacco use is now in serious decline and it is widely consider to be uncool to smoke. Was this accomplished by making smoking illegal? Of course not. Making smoking illegal would have made it only more desirable? A combination of targeted taxation, a persistent ad campaign, and cultural taboos defeated the very addictive habit of smoking and made it less and less prevelant. Marijuana foes could only hope for such success against the drug they oppose. Mr Brown is a dinosaur. Everyday there are fewer and fewer people who seriously believe making marijuana illegal is a viable solution to marijuana addiction and the problem it creates for society. For those who want to see less marijuana usage, follow the example of tobacco.
