    agree whole heartedly. smoking pot may be illegal but doesnt mean it is a good law,same as how wearing a seatbelt being against the law is a freaking stupid law especially since it violates the constitution as being our free choice. someone who goes out and doesnt honor the law of wearing a seatbelt,doesnt mean they are a bad person.lol

    everytime I get in the car,i remember all the stupid ass fines I have been given for not wearing a seatbelt "one example how the sheep have been brainwashed we live in a free country." I remember them and then I immediately put my seatbelt on and say to myself- Remember,this is a facist disctatership we live in." That thought IMMEDIATELY enters my mind remembering the times the gestapa fined me is how I remember to put it on now.

    I am so used to it now, I don't think of it at all. BUT, as I said on long trips it is miserable. I suppose it saves lives, right?

    Not all them agree with the corporate politicians hijacking both parties for dominance. Do you understand there is a split going on in both parties.

    That's like assuming all Blacks or Latinos vote liberal Democrat. Wrong.

    There are lots of Conservative Christian and Muslim Blacks who don't have an organized voice and representation because ppl only listen if they agree with the media stereotype. If they speak out otherwise they are silenced.

    We can't keep leaving ppl out and discounting their representation just because we've already filed them away into a box with a label, and if they don't fit too bad!

    I know someone whose estate got sued over a car accident where both the driver and passenger got killed and I think neither was wearing safety belts at the time. In accidents, ppl are more likely to hit heads together so you do pose risks to other passengers if you don't use seatbelts.

    Since driving is not a right but a privilege, the state can pass laws regulating the safety rules on driving. And require that with the license the driver assumes legal and financial responsibility.

    Ps wouldn't it be great to issue licenses to ppl who work in govt. And if they violate rules of operation they get their license revoked or pay costs of covering damages of bad govt just like bad driving that costs other ppl. Hmmmmm

    Emily N, a useful phrase that cropped up after Brexit is "The Political spectrum is shifting from left/right to north/south".

    I know it sounds strange but Leave swept through the northern English labor precincts like it was part of the labor platform. Hence the phrase.

    Marijuana is and should be the LEAST of our concerns. If cigarettes and alcohol are legal, why not mary jane?

    Because drug use causes more crime that tobacco and alcohol.
