Mayor Pete Wants to Decriminalize
'Meth, Coke, Ecstasy,' Not Just Pot

Original Article

In an interview on Friday, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Church of Social Justice) clarified his drug policy, calling for decriminalization of all drugs including methamphetamine, cocaine, and ecstasy. “Incarceration should not even be a response to drug possession,” Buttigieg told editors at the Des Moines Register. An editor pressed him, “Is that across the board? So if it’s meth or coke or ecstasy, any drugs, if it’s possession, incarceration isn’t…” “That’s right,” Mayor Pete said.

This is a last ditch effort to raise the poll numbers from the bottom layer of society. I'm sure Mr. & Mrs. ButtJudge are familiar with these illegal delights given their residence in Wonderland.

Much as I agree that drugs are very bad, the Constitution does not grant the feds the authority to ban them any more than it gave the feds the authority to ban alcohol. We do t have a Constitution any more. You can expect a gun ban!

I have read that drug use is rampant in the male homosexual sub-culture, with certain drugs used to enhance the intensity of orgasms. If that is correct, then Peter the Homosexual is simply operating in his own lane with his position on drugs. (Lesbians are not included in the enhancement stuff. I guess they mostly sit around and complain about men.. Back in the 1970s, in the heated arena of women's rights, some coeds wore a button that said, 'how dare you assume I am heterosexual!' That button was sort of the opposite of viagra.)

It never ceases to amaze me - - when L-Dotters - - who allegedly believe in individual freedom, free markets, and the Constitution - - eagerly back big government prohibition of individual choices - - throwing people into jail because of what they choose to ingest - - and even worse - - turning someone else's bad choices into my problem. Drug cartels - - murder - - muggings - - corruption - - and general mayhem are all the result of big government criminalizing individual choices. Nearly all of that would be eliminated by the decriminalization of all narcotic drugs. And please don't bemoan the overdose death of your beloved nephew. That probably would not have happened if drugs were legal - - and it's certainly not my problem.

Where will users get all the money to purchase these drugs? Business owners schools etc. certainly won't want employees that are high at work. Driving becomes more hazardous, more homeless, more people die. So the end result is to have people on drugs, out on the street and dying while robbing the non users who have been stripped of their weapons and unable to defend themselves.

This is the classic example of the major flaw in so-called "Libertarian-ism", namely, that not everyone is capable of taking personal responsibility and most people are in no position to be held accountable for their deeds due to poverty, ignorance or other situations should their drug usage make them do something untoward. The mayor of Bend Over, Indiana no doubt has lots of wealthy, liberal friends who use all sorts of drugs behind the closed doors of their expensive apartments, house, etc. They quietly shoot up or smoke up and don't bother anyone --- so he feels they should be left alone. No harm, no foul. Thus no crime for possession or buying said drugs. It's a personal decision, don't you see? The mayor has obviously never met a crazed drug addict about 30 hours away from their last hit and who would kill their own grandma to get enough money to get the heroin monkey off his back.

Cigarettes and ecigs are bad. Meth is ok. Pot is ok. Got it. Now, for those thinking this is great, all this is is a step towards ward government control of drugs. Buy your drugs through a government store with all the associated taxes you’ll be ok. Buy on the street and not so much.

So he wants to decriminalize exactly what is holding so many people in its grip of death? He wants to condemn innocent people to be victims of those addicts in their search for funds to pay for their addictions? Couple this with his attacks on Christians and their faith, he is one ignorant and sick pathetic creep. Drugs are not victimless crimes.

All narcotics were legal in the U.S. at one time. They could be found in anything from candy and soda pop to patent medicines which claimed to cure anything from toothaches to menstrual cramps. Laws were passed against their distribution because of the Public Health crisis they caused. We as a society, have never been able to keep regulated substances out of the hands of underage youth, look at all the teens vaping as an example. Removing all restrictions would only double the amount of users. They would be the ones who end up in prison for crimes related to securing funds to buy their drugs, while the sellers would be exempt from prosecution.

All these drugs endanger our nation #10. National Security is the Federal responsibility and THAT is in the constitution. When people say that banning drugs is unconstitutional, that tells me that somebody really likes drugs, and is not against them in any way. Something that rots the foundation of our nation and its security is or should always be considered bannable. Right now, drug money from cartels and their customers pays for corruption in government and also funds terrorism. How is that constitutional again???

I believe 25% of the population belongs in prison, including 90% of the politicians, which means I support building more prisons, hiring and training more professional corrections officers. Prisons should be on the Japanese model, where they learn to do anything to avoid being put in prison.

Mayor Pete resembles the old Alfred E. Neumann cartoon character with ridiculous comments right out of the old Onion magazine. His only chance is that a Democrat socialist nominee selects Pete as his or her vice-presidential running mate. If Pete’s dream of decriminalizing the possession of all currently illegal drugs ever becomes reality, it would not be long before China and other countries flood the USA with dangerous drugs like fentanyl and opioids that would kill untold numbers of Americans. As foreign countries across the world adversarial to the USA sit back and laugh their butts off. The only way to stop that Democrat nutty pandering to criminal and irresponsible elements of society is to never vote for Democrats.

I'll stand with #15. FTA: "...while there continue to be all kinds of harms associated with drug possession and use, it’s also the case that we have created—in an effort to deal with what amounts to a public health problem—we have created an even bigger problem." And that bigger problem is the spread of law enforcement granted extraordinary powers, and accomplishing nothing but "spreading it around" in terms of grants and added funding. If law enforcement was the answer, or even an answer to drug usage, one wonder why it remains a "crisis". Like "security", "drugs" is political shorthand for many things, including ragging on minority communities, like white kids aren't imbibing or selling. What these laws have done is create an environment of tremendous corruption - of society, government and law enforcement. And that corruption is global, generally unchecked and highly profitable. Public social services and "rehab" spread another huge chunk of money around. "Public health" officials won't keep the plague or measles from the public, but go all in for drug education and other programs. If they are effective, I suspect, funding runs out. Frankly, let the pending Darwin Award winners step forward. Have it it, like drunks, smokers (and now vapers), and "fat people"...or should the Federal government step in there, too? Oh, wait, they already have.

Mrs. PeteButt panders for the pot-head vote. Pathetic. Sad when one sees that the criminal vote is now a factor in elections. Thank the Democrats for that, but it is likely only a matter of time before the Republicans are on board with it as well. Anything for votes. Didn't think they would stop at just pot. did you? Of course not. Wonder what his stand is on cigarettes. How ironic that the same people that want to legalize hard drugs seem to want to ban cigarettes. It fixes nothing! Would you want a crackhead living in your house or operating heavy machinery? What will they do when they lose their job, and cannot find a new one? This is a big mistake, and Mrs. Pete Buttigieg should not hold a government position anywhere.

As it has become increasingly obvious that his campaign's failure to generate more support has doomed its chances of winning, Mayor Pete does the political equivalent of performing self-immolation to get attention. The tragic flaw to his choice is that lack of attention isn't why his campaign is sputtering, as the enemedia have paid plenty of attention to him. To be fair, the gay-loving media have practically promoted him.

As the spiritually wayward mayor knows, Ecstasy users, cokeheads, and methmouths vote, too, if they ever get around to making it to the voting booth. More drugs mean more anti-social behavior. (One partial antidote to violent people freaking out on powerful drugs would be for more law abiding citizens to carry weapons.) A long time ago the Onion had an article about (IIRC) Nevada phasing out all laws, including, eventually, laws against armed robbery and murder. The Nevada "governor" celebrated the news while swigging from a bottle of Jim Beam. The story was a hoot, of course. I sent it to a few friends and we all had a nice guffaw. No more laws in Nevada! The anarcho-libertarian dream. Ha ha! In a perishing civilization commonly understood words start getting redefined upside down and lawlessness gets redefined as lawful or even desirable behavior as criminals cancel your vote one by one, with predictable consequences. Lives and times go bad. When society starts heading the direction of what was silly parody two decades ago, even strong if not pure libertarians such as myself must take pause. I have seen a large number of lives destroyed or outright ended by addiction, whether to alcohol or drugs. Or food or gambling. At some level I believe everyone should be responsible for himself or herself. There's no good way to save some people from themselves with well intentioned laws or writs that don't prevent licentiousness (evil) but do curtail the liberty of the lawful. Do we want to be free? Addicts have to decide whether or not they want to be free of their destructive behavior, to live again; we can't do it for them, try though we might. For the rest of us it might be safer to let the hopheads have their poison so they don't have to rob each other, or us, to get it. It's a complicated subject with no really good solutions.

During a recent CNN interview, New Yorker editor David Remnick expressed consternation with the public’s refusal to accept at face value what the news media report about President Trump. Our intransigence, it seems, is a source of considerable frustration for the Fourth Estate: “We don’t understand why the evidence of things, why facts don’t penetrate so many of our brothers and sisters in the United States of America.” Remnick and the press corps for whom he presumes to speak evidently fail to comprehend that this patronizing attitude toward their “brothers and sisters” is precisely what created and still drives public mistrust of the media.

The very fact the DOJ has to release this statement shows how very far America’s freedoms have fallen. “College campuses should not be mini police states,” wrote Eric Dreiband, assistant attorney general, as well as several other attorneys, in a “Statement of Interest” filed in U.S. District Court on behalf of plaintiffs accusing Jones County Junior College in Mississippi of several egregious freedom of speech violations against students.

History doesn’t follow a schedule. The events that define an era often happen before or after the onset of a new decade. It’s been said that the Sixties didn’t begin on January 1, 1960, but on November 22, 1963, the day John F. Kennedy was assassinated. They didn’t end on January 1, 1970, but on August 9, 1974, when Richard Nixon resigned as president. Keep this in mind as you look at retrospectives of the 2010s. The calendar decade may be drawing to a close, but the tendencies, ideas, movements, sentiments, and personalities associated with the past 10 years may not be quite ready to leave the stage.

An editor pressed him, “Is that across the board? So if it’s meth or coke or ecstasy, any drugs, if it’s possession, incarceration isn’t…” “That’s right,” Mayor Pete said.

Let’s start with a story. Just a few years ago, when I first turned to think seriously about the changes wrought by 40 years of the computer revolution, I found myself in a meeting with some senior figures in cybertechnology: directors of computer labs, explorers of artificial intelligence, people with their fingers on the pulse, or maybe the throat, of the future. In the chit-chat before the meeting began, I mentioned a British study claiming that “many young adults spend a third of their waking lives” on electronic devices. These young people, ages 16 to 22, check their phones an average of 85 times a day —

Timothy Snyder is a historian at Yale University. He has written books of varying critical reception on Russia and Eastern Europe. Lately, he has taken to warning Americans of what he sees as the danger the United States will fall into totalitarianism under President Trump. In the past few days, Snyder has turned his attention , not in a scholarly work but in a series of tweets, to a Trump impeachment trial in the Senate. His tweets were notable mostly because Snyder managed to pack a large number of misconceptions about impeachment into a very small space. The tweets, ten in all, were directed toward Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell.

Jason Alderman was hungry. It was the beginning of his regular Sunday night commute from San Francisco to Boston, but unlike most weeks, he hadn't grabbed food before boarding his plane. So that June 2018 evening, the public relations executive did something he'd sworn he'd never do again: He ate the in-flight meal. Sitting in business class, he ordered the duck ravioli after he says the flight attendant assured him it was "very good." But a few hours later, Alderman knew something was wrong. "About three-quarters of the way through the flight, I start feeling really bad. Really, really bad," he recalled.

Those who tuned in to her program that evening had to watch a meandering 19-minute soliloquy and a commercial break before Maddow showed anything from the tax return, which wasn’t much. Her guest, David Cay Johnson, speculated that Trump may have also leaked nude photos of Melania. That night was a massive letdown for those who believed Maddow’s initial announcement, but it previewed what we could expect from Maddow for the next three years,

New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet said it's "odd" to be called a member of the elite, but he acknowledged journalists must do more to understand religion.

We are now looking at 2019 in our rear view mirrors, since it is time for those irritating “The Best/Worst of the year” lists. This past year was full of irritations, on many levels, from the shallow and superficial, to the rarest of rare political actions taken by the most irritating Congress in history. Let’s start with some of the candidates:Speaking of shallow and superficial, there is that previously little-known actor Jussie Smollett. His claim to fame was as a character in the FOX TV show “Empire.” Smollett, a gay black man, became a hero portraying, you guessed it: a gay black man.

In an interview on Friday, Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D-Church of Social Justice) clarified his drug policy, calling for decriminalization of all drugs including methamphetamine, cocaine, and ecstasy. “Incarceration should not even be a response to drug possession,” Buttigieg told editors at the Des Moines Register. An editor pressed him, “Is that across the board? So if it’s meth or coke or ecstasy, any drugs, if it’s possession, incarceration isn’t…” “That’s right,” Mayor Pete said.

Amid the growing popularity of plant-based products, a doctor of veterinary medicine has suggested that the Burger King's Impossible Whopper has so much estrogen from soy that it could make men grow breasts. In a report in Tri-State Livestock News, Dr. James Stangle of South Dakota rails against the alternative burger, made by Impossible Foods, and its use of soy protein as a main ingredient. (Snip) 'Just six glasses of soy milk per day has enough estrogen to grow boobs on a male. That’s the equivalent of eating four impossible whoppers per day. You would have to eat 880 pounds of beef

Former Vice President Joseph R. Biden on Monday said that he would consider choosing a Republican for a running mate if he’s the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, though he said someone who would fit the proper bill didn’t immediately come to mind. “The answer is I would, but I can’t think of one now,” Mr. Biden said in response to a questioner at a campaign stop in New Hampshire. “No, I’m serious. … There’s some really decent Republicans that are out there still, but here’s the problem right now with the well-known ones: they’ve got to step up. You know what I mean?”

On Sunday’s broadcast of ABC’s “This Week,” Sen. Chris Van Hollen (D-MD) argued if the Senate impeachment trial did not have witness and documents, it would be “rigged.” He argued he believed it would not be an exoneration for President Donald Trump if that is the case. Van Hollen said, “We’re focusing on the importance of a fair trial, and all Americans, I think, understand that a fair trial means you get to call your witnesses. Senator Murkowski put her finger on the big issue; is Senator McConnell going to try to rig this trial right from the start working in lockstep with the president

Joe Biden said he would nominate Barack Obama to the Supreme Court if the former commander-in-chief was willing to do the job. The former vice president, who served two terms under Obama, was answering questions during a campaign event Saturday in Washington, Iowa when he was asked if he’d ever nominate the 44th president to the nation’s highest court. “If he’d take it, yes.” Biden said in response. The move, if Biden were elected as president in 2020, would make Obama the second president in American history to also serve as a Supreme Court justice.

Virginia's Governor Ralph Northam and the Legislature's Democrat majority are anticipating resistance to the gun control measures they are planning, including a ban on "assault weapons" and certain magazines. The legislative majorities and enthusiasm for gun-grabbing are the result of the northern D.C. suburbs' population growth and are being resisted by the non-urban parts of state, leading to a proliferation of gun sanctuary counties: Latest sanctuary map with Fauquier and Charles City counties. pic.twitter.com/f7Tl77F3AK — Phil Van Cleave VCDL (@VCDL_ORG) December 24, 2019 Now the Second Amendment–haters seem to be anticipating push coming to shove.

Recent elections in Virginia have placed the Virginia government within arm's length of widespread gun confiscation. Around eighty-four counties and cities throughout the Commonwealth have pledged to ignore and resist these measures. Some Virginia elected officials have called for the National Guard to carry out such confiscation, which would imply the arrest and disarmament of local officials who get in the way. Governor Northam has stopped short of adopting such an idea, but he will not rule it out. Additional stories indicate that the government will disable internet and telephone access to affected areas during the crackdown.
