Sci-fi Sunday

Imagine life in a parallel universe exactly like our own, except Barack Obama’s teenaged self got arrested for one of his numerous drug-law violations. That subject and more is discussed in today’s Bristol Press, Middletown Press, and New Britain Herald, where I also offer Obama’s opponents a strategy that, even now, can help them succeed in their goal of ensuring Obama’s not elected. (Granted, my strategy’s only viable if someone develops time-travel technology first. But it’s still more plausible than robble-robbling on about the man’s birth certificate.)

On a more serious note, I also explain the rationale behind the war on drugs:
. . . drugs destroy lives, so the government figures that instead of giving drugs the chance to destroy your life, you should let prison do it for you.

It’s like waiting for the other shoe to drop, which can be very stressful, so the law just grabs the shoe and beats you senseless with it right now.

Oh come on Jen, the thinly veiled racists on the right need SOMETHING to pin their hopes on. Why must you shatter thier dreams. Other than the fact that it's so much fun to watch them cry.

Besides, the "War on Drugs" is really a "War on nontaxable income" - an issue that all governments of any stripe get excited about.
