To those who want to solely blame Obama (and he deserves a lot, don't get me wrong), remember there are many with an (R) after their name that have been complicit in what is going wrong. (R)'s and (D)'s no longer matter. What should matter is "How long has he/she been in office?" If they've made Washington DC their career, they've gotta go. It is the establishment political types we need fear, not parties.

Further, as a recovered alcoholic, I know for a fact that bi-polar, depression, schizophrenia, parnoia, etc. runs rampant in the ranks of alcoholics -- and drug addicts. Is that a result of the drugs (alcohol, pot, coke, etc.), or is it a symptom of the types of personalities that are attracted to mind altering substances? I offer to you that is, instead, a symptom of the person being drawn to something which eases their own pain -- real or imagined.

John, be careful about your quick jump to believe "doctors" over real world evidence. You might remember all the scientists who ballyhoo AGW/ACC, and have since been proven to have an agenda. Said another way, be careful about jumping on the bandwagon of evidence that supports your agenda. Liberals do that and I sigh heavily when I see conservatives do it. Instead, what I see in this study -- as you have reported -- is drawing conclusions based off of what may very well be a faulty sample. To wit, unless these "patients" are drawn from a pool that was monitored and KNOWN to not have any psychological problems prior to delving into pot, then the doctors, possibly, are drawing false conclusions.
No, actually, liberalism is a religion. Compare it to Judeo-Christian, and Islam, and think these points through. It has A) a doctrine of beliefs (abortion, environmentalism, collectivism, etc.), B) it has good vs evil (Iibs good, conservatives evil), C) it has churches (schools and universities), and D) it now, in BHO, has its messiah. It has dawned on me, through many debates with liberals, that it is akin to trying to talk someone out of their religion. Think about it, and see if you don't agree.
You know how you're getting to a progressive? When you are being effective? When the progressive gets out the ad hominem and resorts to the Granddaddy of all lines: "Nothing is doing more damage to the GOP than the GOP and neo-con nitwits." As usual, sinkingship388, why don't you trot out some facts to rebut Ransom with? Because, as usual, sinkingship388, you don't have any...

Uh huh. And for every woman raped, and child butchered by the Red Army, triage, there was one less woman to rape, and one less child to butcher for the American army wasn't there? And once we split Germany in half, and the east went to the USSR, every freedom loving person who got shot by the Russians trying to escape the Iron Curtain, was one less freedom seeker for the Americans to kill on the other side? You might want to back away from that Oliver Stone propaganda movie you've been watching, and learn some real history, triage. Better yet, if you think the Reds and communism are so great, perhaps you should hop a plane for the nearest country practicing that ideology. In other words, triage, put your money where your idiot brain is.
Orwell couldn't have written about the times we live in today... Oh wait ... he already did.
George, you seem to suffer from the same malady most of you socialists do: Lack of reading comprehension, a.k.a. ignoring the parts that disqualify your arguments. In bold blue lettering (which denotes a hyperlink, aren't all you "progressives" hip and tech savvy?) It says that Mitchell sourced his column from the Daily Mail online. Just to be sure, I clicked on his hyperlink, and SHAZAM! up popped the story he is referencing. You can even find his pull quotes. Now, you can question the Daily Mail's sources all you want, but I have a question for you George: Are you SO blinded by your religion of socialism that when confronted with the truth, you can't see it?
@ We. I'm a "right winger", we, and I happen to agree with you on drug policy -- though for different reasons. After extensive research and soul searching, I have reached the conclusion that the "War on Drugs" has done more to rob us of civil liberties, and liberty in general, than any other "war" out there, save the "War on Poverty". Having said that, your comments on corporations and "poisoning" the earth are idiotic. I don't know of a conservative out there who wants dirty air, or dirty water, or dirty food. What we have come to realize about this "War on Pollution" is that we have reached a point of diminishing returns. Passing laws calling for more onerous regulations that do little to reduce existing pollution, make no sense.

Only, VIII, if you can identify for us the precise things GWB did to put economic conditions in such a poor state. You see, Henry, the problem your side has is you blame without specificity. The man you helped put in the Oval Office has blamed W since he won in 2008. Except, he never tells us what, exactly, W did to "ruin" the economy. So, Henry, I invite you -- in all your vast wisdom -- to tell us EXACTLY the things W did to "ruin" the economy. To solve any problem you must first identify it. So do that, Henry, with specificity.
