Hey buddy, I haven't talked down to you, like you certainly did to me, above. Get over yourself, eh? Before you make more of a fool of yourself attributing positions to others, which they never took in the first place?

Come up with your own position, why don'cha, instead of taking someone else's (Elon Musk) to argue against? There's positive contribution to a debate, and then there's, well...

"Laugesen asked what could be done to label a bowl of granola infused with marijuana."

Oh, I dunno, mebbe label that granola in the box, before it's poured into the bowl? Like all other cereals? It's hard for someone with my politics to line up behind edibles, when the arguments in favor, are as weak as this. Just sayin'.

Oppose anything you want, just don't try telling me the Constitution's on your side, because I don't think it says what you think it says, so no sale.

Oh good grief. Our government levying taxes is CONSTITUTIONAL, says so right there in Article 1. What question remains that you would have me ask?

We should overthrow our government because it legally (as per the constitution) collects taxes? Major disconnect, here, as much as I'd like lower taxes, there's certainly a basis for Congress to do so, right there in black & white in the Constitution -- so if you want me to question that, what other document did the founders leave us which supports your position?

Meh, it gets too tiring to even rebut, on this forum of kool-aid drinkers...

"This now-dismantled extensive marijuana grow operation on federal lands in Colorado shows all the signs of a sophisticated drug trafficking organization,"

Boring. They say that about every penny-ante nickel-and-dime grow that's ever been busted. Still waiting for one that impresses me without talkin' up the crop, ya know?

"You know, the folks who used to be proud to consider themselves Republicans, but in recent years have re-registered as independents."

Because I'm hardly the only conservative (of whatever degree) who will oppose everything Trump/Palin stand for. From overseas, if we're expected to honestly have to consider a reality-TV-celebrity ticket as if those candidates are remotely worthy of serious consideration vs. expatriation.

Oh, boy, do I ever have a rebuttal coming, if folks can stay tuned for it as I'm really busy atm. Believe it or not, it's entirely possible to be a conservative while disagreeing with everything Steamboat Institute stands for, and I promise to elaborate my position soon. Preview: Johh, I don't have whatever secret decoder ring you require for me to agree with your take on the Constitution -- why would I read between the lines, when reading the lines themselves leaves me no reason to?

First, I need to get my Stepdad to sign off, not that I won't say my bit if he doesn't, but because if he does, you can't get more (paleo) conservative than a retired Marathon Oil VP like him, where the only thing I (a "liberal") agree with him on, are things you really don't want to hear, because the conservatives I know have been abandoning the GOP in droves in recent years because they don't back your flavor of extremism for a second.

You know, the folks who used to be proud to consider themselves Republicans, but in recent years have re-registered as independents.
