All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


Pot Vending Machines

This can only turn out good.

San Diego may soon permit marijuana sales from vending machines.
KGTV-TV says the City Council is scheduled to consider an ordinance in the next few weeks that would permit the machines.
Medical marijuana patients would collect pot from the machines inside brick-and-mortar dispensaries. To prevent fraud, the machines require a fingerprint and a prepaid card.
Not to be out done, the Colorado Legislature issued a statement today: "as soon as we get done baning all guns and making Colorado safe for rapists and murders, we will institute pot vending machines in HIGH schools."  The plan calls for a test program at Boulder public schools.  They will put pot vending machines in the cafeteria and hall ways.  A joint will sell for $5.  The machines will be paired with normal vending machines selling Twinkies ($10) Ho-Ho's($10) and Moon Pies ($15).  If everything works out as planned the program will roll out state wide in 2014. The Superintendent of Public schools believes this will solve a significant part of the school funding deficits. Governor Hickenlooper giggled and repeated "HIGH SCHOOOOOOOL" several times before he promised to sign the legislation.  Then he requested another Twinkie.


  1. At first I wondered why the MJ would be so much cheaper than the junk food. I was thinking it was because the junk food is on the bad list right now. But now I figured it out.

    I don't know why we don't just surrender the war on drugs.

  2. "surrender the war on drugs"

    No never.

    We need to tax them like cigs and beer. I don't know how much an oz of pot costs, but if it was legal you would reduce the price and increase governement revenue.

  3. I am reliably informed by certain persons over at that other blog [VD's] that it is anti-libertarian and anti-american to utilize punitive taxation.

    On the other hand, I am getting more fed up and cynical every day. What the hell difference does it make, we will all be in the soup lines in a few years.

    I guess I am not a true libertarian because I don't care if we legalize pot just to tax it. I realize that is not intellectually pure, as I am using the power of the .gov to gore someone else's ox. Oh well.

    If I were king, I'd legalize all drugs just to put the DEA, street gangs, and all other organized crime out of work*. Taxation, if too steep, would create the black market that they need to stay in business.

    A small tax wouldn't bother me, I just wouldn't advocate it.

    *I'd have everyone at the ATF put to death. Twice.

  6. Too bad there's no more twinkies, but now there's twice as many Little Debbies at the King Soopers.
