Unhappy Bush tars drug takers with aiding terrorists

Well, just when we thought the tides were turning a bit, here is something to set it back a notch.

<a href="http://www.smirkingchimp.co m/article.php?sid=7695 &mode=nested&order=0 " target="_blank">Bush tars drug takers with aiding terrorists</a>

I can't say I am surprised by this approach. I hope that it backfires like the drug commercials that were going around several months back.

I still believe the tide is turning in our favor. Even the dea itself declared the superbowl ads were a failure, no one bought into them.

Thank god. It's about time that a majority of people in the U.S. understand the bullshit behind government drug policies. I know for sure that Bush's attempt to retake the imaginary high-ground in the imaginary war on drugs will fail miserably. He can't prevent truth and logic from taking hold of the people, because that is what always happens eventually.

True, this is why it pisses me off to see him continue to pull this crap. I am most of the way through Judge Jim Gray's book and am extremely appalled by what I have read so far. With so many bad images fresh in my mind right now, I am probably being a tad over sensitive to this "Anti Drug" rhetoric.

I just hope your right!

Let's hope!

I just hope that broadcasts such as John Stossel's "The War on Drugs: The War on Ourselves" will help to combat the nonsense that Bush is spouting. The government propoganda machine is an awfully big one and for most American's, one too easy to *blindly* believe.

Bush is clearly losing support on this. Desperate people, especially presidents who weren't elected, will do just about everything to curry favor. Our numbers are strong, and our cause is right. There ain't a damn thing wrong with getting blazed. It's cheaper than therapy.

Hi, my name is George W. Bush and I'm a Christian Nazi. I claim to be a Christian but I support the Death Penalty. I claim to believe in freedom of speech but I'm the first to support an amemdment to prohibit flag burning. I have hardly any opinions of my own on controversial issues, so when I'm undecided I run off to the Pope for advice. The Pope told me to "just say no" to cloning and stem cell research.

I possess a third grade reeding level - uh sorry, reading level - yet I bought my way through Yale. I claim not to have had a drink in 15 years but let's face it, I sure got plastered during the superbowl when I "choked on a pretzel."

In reality I support the oppression of free speech. I have gone on record saying "there ought to be limits to freedom of speech!" in reference to a satirical anti-Bush parody site (gwbush.com). I believe drug offenders should be exempt from voting because I fear enough of them might vote to legalize drugs.

I support denying federal aid to college students who have drug charges because, let's face it, these pot-smoking students are the smartest, most free-thinking people of all and cutting off their aid might be the only way to keep them dumb.

I support drug testing for high-school extracurriculars because pot smokers who might want to join the debate team would be able to give a convincing debate in favor of ending the war on drugs. What better way to bar them from participating than a urinalysis. See, I like to use very subtle ways to silence my people.

Once again, for those of you who are as braindead as I and have already forgotten, my name is George W. Bush and I'm a Christian Nazi.

HA! Your a imposter and I can prove it!

During the Super Bowl, I was wasted on Lithium, Xanax, an eight-ball of Peruvian Marching Powder, AND a half-gallon of Jim Beam! You said I was only drunk! Liar!

The rest of that stuff is true though. Can I copy that and put it on my resume? If I'm not in jail by 2004, I'm gonna need Poppy to git me another job.

Kam, you forgot Inside Trader and Uncle Dick's ventiloquist dummy. Why, I bet Dick's got his hand up George's ass right now.
It really is a shame that folks like Ashcroft and Bush make Christians look so bad and continue the stereotypes of intolerance...

my sentiments exactly. Those of us who try to put our best foot forward as Christians have to deal with these sanctimonius, hypocritical, bigots. But what goes around comes around. Bush Cheney and Ashcroft will all be recipients of the karma they put out.

It makes me angry hat Bush is milking what happened Sept.11th for his own agenda. If you question anything he does,you're helping the terrorists.

People are having propaganda fed to them easier because it plays with people's emotions. Anyone that's never known the truth about Marijuana tend to believe what they hear on tv,and propaganda is constantly on tv.

It's bullshit,and I hate it.

what really pisses me off is that the sixties generation , the peace love and groovy people say and do nothing to stop the lies. Have you all sold out or are you cowering in your basements afraid to speak the truth.

either way shame on you, you are know the majority yet we hear nothing from you, your silence or indifference is what allows this bullshit to continue.

I think it is about time you baby boomers grew some balls or maybe just rediscover your testicals and change the world . Some where along the way you gave up ,and you submitted to the shit you fought so hard against.

Excellent point, one which I've often wondered about; I do find it perplexing that the generation that toked up to Sgt. Pepper and rabbitted on about personal freedom is the same generation that now naively pisses into a cup to secure their Fortune 500 job. You're right, they did sell out. They believe the propaganda about today's bud being 15x stronger than in the '60's. They even believe the propaganda that drug testing is all about workplace safety.

I think this is what happened: Young people did drugs prolifically in the '60's. Then in the early '70's they all decide to pick their mate and marry. Then they have kids. At this point, all the former hippies are now experiencing the joy of raising a family and making money. They're high on life.

The government picked this moment to propagandize to the masses, "See, isn't this better than drugs? Don't you now realize how unproductive and childish your actions last decade were?" So once the nation's collective psyche is in the "Been there, done that, grew out of it so I don't care anymore if it's legal," mode, Nixon seized the moment to officially declare the War on Drugs. Though the WOD did diminish in the late '70's, Reagan renewed it.

Ironic: Reagan's election wins were landslides, so quite a few of the former pot-smoking hippies must have voted for him. Because that was 1980, already 2 decades later. The hippies are now age 40 roughly. Since the Beatles heyday, the former hippies are now busy going to work, sending their kids to school, mowing the lawn, saving money for family vacations, and those pot-smoking Sgt. Pepper days are another world ago, another life ago. Like a long-gone dream. So by 1980, the most die-hard legalization activists are much fewer and farther between than in the '60's, indeed, enough of a minority for the government to brush them off. It seems like only now is the tide slowly beginning to turn our way again, with at least 2 state governors (Ventura and Johnson) advocating legalization (the number used to be 0), and recently with the 2 prime time news shows blowing the whistle on the drug war. I'm also inspired by the fact that so shortly after Switzerland and England decriminialized marijuana, Nevada seems to be busting its butt to follow suit with an even more libertarian initiative.

So, the shortened version of all that: the '60's generation sold out to "getting on with life." But I'm not condoning their resulting apathy for the inhumane drug war. Most of us on this site are highschool/college age. But when the time comes for us to "get on with life," we must remember to never lose our steam. Regardless of how comfortable our lives might be in other departments (great family and nice paycheck) we must never forget that marijuana prohibition is the ultimate infringement on life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and we must never give in to the convenience of conformity.

Some of us on this site may even quit smoking bud completely at some point. But each one of us here should still be as politically vocal 50 years from now as we are at this point.

One of the main reasons for the "sellout" was the seizure and forfeiture laws by our friend and pal, Ronnie Reagan. People really had to go underground or quit all together because the penalty became more severe than just jail. The loss of the house, car, family, etc., is a very scary proposition. Talk about cruel and unusual punishment. Most of those people have too much to lose, especially at sixty years of age. Dubya is actually waking people up to the real world and digging himself a hole at the same time. When the economy is going to shit because the taxes are so high to pay for the prohibition, it's only a matter of time before people begin to realize what is really taking place. Hence the John Stossel broadcast. Notice I didn't say "program" which has become one of the media's favorite words. When the prohibition causes people that support it their homes, cars, jobs, etc., they should begin to turn the other way. When there gets to be too much shit in the toilet, it will stop up. The Amerikkan Government is losing, and they know it. By the way, you folks on here made my day . Thank you.
