Right Thinking From The Left Coast
The Government is merely a servant -- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. - Mark Twain

Robertson on Pot

This has been making the rounds:

I never thought I’d have any kinds words to say about Pat Robertson, but if this video reflects his view—i.e., he doesn’t walk this back—I have to applaud someone who’s willing to change his mind on this issue.  My read is not that he wants marijuana legalized, but that he supports the idea of decriminalizing it.  He’s not the first man of God whom I’ve heard use this line of reason.  A pastor I knew outlined the same point of view—that pot smokers need help ... help from God in his case ... not jail.

In the end, it will be conservatives that take the lead on winding down the War on Drugs.  Because eventually, we’re all going to realize how wasteful it is.
