You CANNOT tell me this wacko isn't suffering from Alzheimers.
What a completely idiotic piece. Blame the victim. This completely ignores the large and growing body of evidence of the physical and mental bad effects of marijuana. It actually makes you stupid. Also no mention of the societal costs of dealing with a larger population of stupid and unmotivated people plus those who graduate to harder drugs. Who's going to pay for the cost of dealing with them? It is virtually a sure thing that the states that have legalized MJ will come to regret it. Yes we need to have stiffer penalties for use here. But to blame us because Latin America has a cartel problem is ludicrous.
I think John Wayne said it best, "Life is tough. It's even tougher when you're stupid." That, I think, pretty well sums up CNN's Baldwin, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, and guest Robert Turner.

George Will is clearly so much smarter than Colbert. He's even smarter than Colbert thinks Colbert is.

WTF?!?! NO, smaller gubmit means some bureaucrat doesn't tell a little girl she can't sell lemonade and cupcakes on the corner. It means no $90 billion wasted on bankrupt green energy companies. It means the EPA doesn't put coal miners out of business. It means Obamacare doesn't exist. It means the government doesn't demand that banks loan money to people who can't pay it back. It means the Department of Energy, CREATED TO MAKE US ENERGY INDEPENDENT, doesn't exist (epic fail). It means the Department of Education, which serves no discernable purpose, doesn't exist. It would also mean we wouldn't have hosed $850 BILLION down the drain on the failed Stimulus. Please, look at the Apollo program. Where is our R&D for space now? Democrats killed it.

And as one awesome lady said, "We want to make our decisions with our lady smarts, not our lady parts."
However, it seems pretty clear that Republicans are simply getting out of the way while Democrats ride the slow motion train wreck of Obamacare into the 2014 midterms. As Tsun Tzu said, "When your enemy is destroying himself, stay out of his way." When Republicans control both the House and Senate, they can write whatever budget, debt ceiling deals they want. Shutting down the government now would be stupid.
