WAR ON DRUGS: Study shows medical marijuana laws reduce traffic deaths
Correlation is not causation – but this is something i’ve been saying for a long time. Hell, if you got every person who drank alcohol to do cocaine instead, there’d be less deaths and life expectancy would increase. But society is not nearly up to the level of understanding that. Society’s kind of retarded, that guy.

FREEDOM: 30 Signs That The United States Of America Is Being Turned Into A Giant Prison
This is kind of a good summary of some of the various issues and events that I’ve blogged about over the past few years. Our country is going to shit like it never has before. Occupy Wall Street has a lot of sympathy from people due to our government pulling off shit like this. It’s not just the corporations that are angering people — though they certainly help.
OVERLY-HARSH PUNISHMENTS: Run a stop sign? Get hospitalized for a week, loose your eye
Cops hospitalize a man for a week (and he has to go back to have his eye removed). Why? He was resisting arrest. Why was he being arrested/ He ran a stop sign. Except he was a pedestrian when this happened. More american “justice”.
Uh yeah… Even if you have a video of this guy running a stop sign, charges should be dropped and he should have a settlement large enough that he never has to work again.
This is bullshit. This is why smart people no longer consider this a free country. Our “freedom” is simply a random roll of the die that some officer didn’t decide to hospitalize us for some unproven crime.
Then there’s the fact that this dude was a 120 lb diabetic, and that the victim’s name is the only name released here.
America is so very un-american.
