President Obama talks about the Drug War...

obama-drugwarDuring last week’s "Cyber Town Hall", held the day after President Obama's State of the Union, President Barrack Obama took time away from his 2012 re-election campaign (or the last two years of his first term) to answer some questions from the little people he claimed to be guiding through the storm the night before.

Among the questions posed to the President about the hamstrung economy, rumors of war, and other signs of the Biblical Apocalypse seeming to beleaguer his administration was (for the second year in a row) a  question picking his brain on his  views on ending the failing "War on Drugs" and on legalization.

Harrumph!!!  Harrumph!!!  Harrumph!!!

An entirely legitimate question that should be debated that I am unwilling to change my mind on...

There's more of that "Change we can believe in" that we all voted for two years ago...

Now in fairness to the President, he does make a good point when discussing "treatment vs. incarceration" for non-violent drug offenders.

But just because a broken clock tells time right twice a day does not mean it works...

the rest of the two minute response to a very fair question (that he keeps having to answer, mind you) is spent trudging around sloppy political jargon: worthy of debate yada yada... look at all the facts yada yada... yet my mind is made up and there is no changing it.

Ya know...

The exact same bullshit way that the elected officials that make up our government handle every other pressing and potentially Nation crippling issue that comes before it.

No wonder so many of us feel like we are on the edge of the abyss of History.

Hopefully, our elected officials will notice that all over the world Governments are desperate to quell  citizen revolts brought about by the feelings of indifference and powerlessness against the deep corruption the bloated bureaucratic tyrannies tend to create and begin to once again listen to our cries for reform.

I doubt it, but it would be nice if they would...
