With any luck, we will end up with far fewer brain dead pot heads endangering society.

LOL. You don't know much about pot do you?  Or do you think that I am "brain dead?"  Smiley

I know nothing about your personal life, but I am sure you are a very nice person.

However, we all know that there are conflicting reports as to the effects of marijuana use.


That's moving in the right direction - a more measured statement. Very good progress there. Smiley

I tend to believe the reports that confirm the harmful effects of marijuana use.  Smiley

FWIW from Wikipedia

Conway received her Bachelor of Arts degree magna cum laude in political science from Trinity College, Washington, D.C. (now Trinity Washington University), where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa. She then earned a Juris Doctor with honors from the George Washington University Law School in 1992. She served as a judicial clerk for Judge Richard A. Levie of the Superior Court of the District of Columbia after graduation.

Rubio attended Tarkio College in Missouri for one year on a football scholarship from 1989 to 1990, before enrolling at Santa Fe Community College (now Santa Fe College) in Gainesville, Florida. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from the University of Florida in 1993, and his J.D. degree cum laude from the University of Miami School of Law in 1996.

Yeah, I can't stand the Rubio fanboyism, but UF and UMiami are hardly bad schools. They're probably the best in Florida. And I don't hold transferring against him. I transferred from Mizzou to Cornell, so I have little room to talk...

Cornell.  Very impressive indeed.

All members of Congress should have enough respect for the office of President, not necessarily for Trump himself, to attend this historic speech.

No, he isn't.

He would be one of the worst picks.

The Democrats would obliterate him.

If Trump resigns or is constitutionally removed, who do I make out the donation of gratitude to and how do I send it?

Put your donation on a broom and command it to fly to the nearest coven.

Most of Donald Trump's opponents believe they will have to wait four more years to see him leave the White House.

But America's witches are more optimistic.

At the stroke of midnight on Friday, followers of witchcraft across the US performed a mass spell designed to remove the president from office.


Salem in reverse?

President Elect DFW deserves the common courtesy of beginning his administration without having to deal with the unjustified sniping from the sidelines by Griffin.

Barack Obama and Joe Biden are elected in 2008.

Vice President Biden tells President Obama in January of 2012 that he will not be running for VP in 2012 due to health concerns.

Who does President Obama then pick for his running mate for VP for the 2012 election?

There are still a few hours to go in this election, but there is a clear trend developing.

You have heard extensively from me during this campaign, and you know the wide variety of policies Poirot and I have brought forward, so I will just say a few words.

Thank you Poirot for being my running mate.  You have done an extraordinary job.  I could not have asked for anyone better.

Thanks to all of you who had the courage to defy the old line establishment parties and the big money interests, and cast your ballot for me.

Congratulations to all the winners.

Governor  Winfield during his final campaign appearance

Governor Winfield delivers his closing speech of the Presidential campaign:

My fellow Atlasians, this historic Presidential election is about to come to a close.

It has been my privilege to have been able to travel from coast to coast of this great nation and to meet millions of you in every part of this wonderful land that we share, and to have met fellow Atlasians from every walk of life.

My exceptional Vice Presidential running mate Poirot, and I, offer Atlasia and Atlasians a new vision, a new opportunity, and a renewed hope for the future and for the future of our families.

We offer Atlasians a more equitable and fair tax structure.

We will create millions of new, well paying jobs, and bring hundreds of billions of dollars into our economy with my Shovels in the Ground Trucks on the Road public works and infrastructure program.

To better protect Atlasians, and in particular our most precious resource, our children, I will be bring forth a far reaching, sensible, and well needed gun control policy.

We will be bringing medical and dental costs under control.

We will be auditing the costs of medical and dental equipment to ensure the public is getting treated fairly.

Medical administration costs are 8%, more than double the world wide average of 3%.  We will be auditing these costs as well to ensure that Atlasians are getting value for their money.

We will be targeting pharmaceutical companies to ensure Atlasians are not getting gouged in drug costs.

Seniors will be treated with dignity and respect in senior's homes.  If this is not adhered to, there will be legal consequences for the homes.

We will maintain a strong, modern, and effective military.  We will never be negotiating from a position of weakness.

We will defend ourselves when necessary, but we will not be undertaking a policy of nation building or pursuing foreign adventures.

Our emphasis is on the poor, the working class, and on the middle class of this nation.

My fellow Atlasians, it is decision time.

We trust that your decision will be for Winfield and Poirot.

After all

What have ya got to lose?
