Anatomy of not just a 'lie' but a 'goddamn lie'... that worked.... again.

Skip the article and scroll down to the bottom and watch Maddow's piece. Must see TV

Maddow: Raw footage reveals O’Keefe lied about ACORN tapes | Raw Story:
"When conservative activists James O'Keefe and Hannah Giles released tapes last fall purporting to show ACORN employees advising them on how to set up a child prostitution ring, it resulted in widespread praise for their intrepid journalism and a Congressional defunding of the anti-poverty group. But it is now becoming clear to all but their most fervent supporters that the O'Keefe 'expose' was deliberately misleading.

'If you were a member of Congress and you voted to defund ACORN because of the outrage portrayed in these tapes,' MSNBC's Rachel Maddow proclaimed on Tuesday, 'you were had.'"

This being on the ballot is going to make for some interesting politicking in Cali over the next few months. It gets my ass to the polls, for sure.

Competitive CA Ballot Complicated By Pot Initiative | TPMDC:
"Recent polls show 56 percent of voters support taxing and regulating marijuana. State Sen. Tom Ammiano (D) has a bill proposed to tax and regulate marijuana that is similar to the ballot initiative. The difference is that voters are being asked to allow local counties to opt into legalization.

'This isn't as much a culture war as it also is the long overdue rational conversation on public policy for how we're going to treat marijuana,' said Ammiano spokesman Quintin Mecke. 'We can try and pretend that people aren't using marijuana and that the war on drugs is working or we can acknowledge reality. This question is no longer a joke about 'What are you smoking' or 'How high are you,' and the economics of the situation in California and nationally have provided us a window to have this conversation.'"

The Push to Legalize Marijuana: It's Real - Politics - The Atlantic:
"You may have heard there's a push to legalize marijuana in California. You may not have heard that it's for real.

Voting ballots in California this November will contain an initiative to legalize, tax, and regulate the sale of marijuana to adults 21 and older, and while this may sound like something that has no chance, whatsoever, of ever becoming law, the thing is: it actually might."

Don't know if the kids are alright. There are a lot of superstitious, religious, pro-war and/or gay-bashing kids out there. But these particular kids are way more than alright.....

Yeah, but there are a lot that are not hung up on all that shit, too. There's where our future lies.

You are slacking, davy. I posted about your boy last Friday and you didn't even leave a comment. Tsk. Video and everything.
