This is absolutely priceless. “Fuck universal healthcare, I’m moving to Canada!!” Gotta love sweet fucking morons, because they make your day brighter and remind you that at least you are not them.

People Who Say They’re Moving To Canada Because Of ObamaCare.

Poor Canada.

Healthcare in America, a fresh start

I’m not really ever noticeably proud of my country, because the US government does a lot of shady things to other countries and to their own citizens. But today, a small victory for the health of all of my compatriots.

I don’t understand anyone’s reasoning that doesn’t like universal healthcare. I have 3 jobs and no healthcare from any of them. I can’t even afford to pay for my own insurance under my parents insurance plan. Thanks to Obama and his extension of healthcare benefits to children until the age of 26, I have access to affordable birth control, regular check-ups and prescriptions for when I get sick.

How is this NOT a step in the right direction? I’m a responsible citizen, college educated and working. I (and you, and that girl down the street, and especially grandmas and grandpas everywhere) deserve to have affordable healthcare that isn’t connected to what job I’m doing where, or how many hours I’m working. I’m still a human being with a beating heart that some cute doctor should examine twice a year to see if I’m healthy, and help me out if I’m not healthy, affordably. Healthcare need not be elite.

FUCK YEAH OBAMA. Thank you. I want to hug every single person in the country right now. Let’s try to take care of each other more and more. YAY!!!

Pat Robertson wants marijuana legalized

WHAT the what?!?!?

Pat Robertson wants marijuana legalized. A surprisingly sane move for a normally nutty Pat Robertson!

He cites the pointless and costly war on drugs as the culprit, saying that the US should “treat marijuana like we treat beverage alcohol.” And also that it’s a waste of taxpayer dollars to imprison people for possession of marijuana.

He also stated that the US “has gone overboard on this concept of being tough on crime.”

“It’s completely out of control. Prisons are being overcrowded with juvenile offenders having to do with drugs. And the penalties, the maximums, some of them could get 10 years for possession of a joint of marijuana. It makes no sense at all.” He also goes on to note that while the upper class folks can get out of drug offenses scot-free, it’s the middle class and poor kids who get in trouble for similar offenses.

Tying in Christianity with the legalization and/or decriminalization of marijuana may be the missing link to getting some traction in this long overdue policy. “If you follow the teaching of Christ, you know that Christ is a compassionate man. And he would not condone the imprisoning of people for nonviolent offenses.” I hear that!

Then we can all be as fun and weird as James Franco, legally! Image via tvrecappersanonymous.wordpress.com

His legion of conservative Christian followers have yet to cry out against his support for the legalization of marijuana. It sure would crack down on a lot of the drug trade throughout Central America, especially in Mexico where the war on drugs has taken 47,515 lives since 2006 when Felipe Calderón became President. Me no likey that our sweet neighbors to the south are in a bloody drug war when it could be greatly helped by legalization.

This is absolutely a step in the right direction. Legalization for the safety of all is really what matters most to me personally. No more creepy drug lords murdering people left and right for minor offenses, no more drug dealers with guns in the streets, no more policemen being tied up with nonviolent crimes, no more hiding.

Also, tax the shit outta weed, guvnahs! There’s your tried and true economy boost right there. Job creation, free up policemen and women to focus on actual crimes, free up jail space and make the weed business safer for everyone involved. Snack sales and Netflix subscriptions will go through the ROOF. Also, we’ll see an uptick in community craft nights. What’s the harm in that?

Go Pat Robertson for saying something that is clearly logical. Let’s get your followers to agree now too.
