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!

A Solution

I have a solution.  I know, sometimes I gripe with no constructive suggestions.  It's not that I don't have constructive suggestions.  I'm enough of a realist to know that it ain't gonna happen.  So I keep it to myself.

Our country has mixed feelings about legalizing recreational drugs.  On one hand it shouldn't be any bodies business what you do at home.  On the other hand drugs are bad for you and sometimes even deadly.  Some people want them, in the name of harmless fun.  Some people want them banned in the name of protecting people from themselves.  Seems like a total impasse. It's not, there is a solution.

Frist we make all drugs legal everyplace for anyone over 21 years old.  Now hear me out.  This gets rid of the #1 reason for police abusing our civil rights, the war on some drugs. The #2 reason, small penis, big chip on shoulder, will still be a problem.  We will have to deal with that latter.  The drugs will be absolutely legal.  The cops won't have anything to say about it and no law to selectively enforce.

However, you have to buy the drugs from a government run exchange.  Think of it like a state run liquor store.  We put the same people in charge of the drug exchange that are in charge of Obamacare.  End of problem.  Drugs are legal and nobody will be able to get them.  A true win-win.

I await my Noble Prize.

I'm so glad I stopped by today so I could read this.

I'm stealing it, BTW. I will give proper credit, though.

Glad to be of help.

I think if we all work together, we can change America back to what it was supposed to be.
