    As usual....his pomposity disallows him to apply his moralizing to any present-day scenarios.

    :rolleyes:

    oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo.....how BOLD, there, Georgie.....taking-on such GARGANTUAN-THREATS to our individuality as the salt-use/lightbulb-application cabals!!!! (You gutless-weenie.)

    .....And, alcohol-consumption was some kind o' widely exercised private right??!!!! :eek: Where-and-when was THAT Absolute established....or, was that merely one o' those Divine Rights, to which "conservatives" were entitled.....'cause they said so????????

    If pickled-livers is a "conservative" private-right, they need to quit steppin'-on-the-toes of OTHERS' private-rights!!!

    Yeah, "conservatives"....THAT'S what we NEED; something nice-'n-convenient/politically-safe like MORE DEBATE!!!!!!!!

    :mad:

    I'm not entirely sure what your point is here.

    George Will's seems to be that prohibition of substances that people take to get high are doomed to fail.

    He notes, correctly I think, that alcohol prohibition was a disaster.

    Marijuana prohibition appears (to me, at least) to be as well.

    Is he wrong?

    Am I?

    Sharron Angle agrees with prohibition. I wonder what the Tea Baggers think of that?

    I'm sorry but I don't know who Sharron Angle is.

    I haven't seen any indication that the Tea Party On'ers have any position regarding alcohol or marijuana prohibition.

    Have you?

    Sharron Angle is opposing Harry Reid in NV. She is backed by the Tea Baggers. I have seen NO platform from the Tea Baggers other than to oppose anything Obama.

    That's all she needs.

    I would also like to know what VY means when he refers to tea partiers, Angle and Prohibition. Is he calling the illegality of weed "prohibition"?
    BTW, I have to say the OP is the first I've seen any evidence of ANYONE being jealous of G. Will.

    But obviously, somebody is.

    Then, why don't people (like him) COME-RIGHT-OUT AND SAY SO??!!!! (....Rather-than wimpin'-out, and referring-to nonsensical-issues...."from how they use salt to what light bulbs they use.") ​

    What does Angle have to do with George Will or that incomprehensible OP?

    Using the criteria we have failed to stamp out some illegal activity as an excuse to simply make it legal would lead one to believe the MILLIONS of home break ins that occur every year should just be legalized, after all according to YOUR criteria we have failed at stopping them. Same with murder and a slew of other crimes.
