| Political Talk|| Will medical marijuana (almost assured) in Florida lead to recreational weed - TheFinalWord on 3/15/14 at 12:06 pm|
Polling indicates that 80% of the populus in Florida will vote for medical marijuana in November. Will this lead to another state having legal recreational marijuana? If the medical weed situation works well, I would give it about 5 years.

No other potential Republican candidates have charisma or national appeal. If nothing else, a Christie demise would definitely help the Democrats.

| Political Talk|| Obama Care Legacy - TheFinalWord on 11/11/13 at 10:34 am|
The Affordable Healthcare Act will be known as "HCA" in the year 2020 and beyond. It will be as much of an accepted entitlement program as Social Security. Sure it will be amended from time to time, but it will be an embedded part of the government.

The Tea Party led the Republicans on a path with no end game. Now The Affordable Healthcare Act will proceed and Obama will concede the Republicans some minor budget-cutting measures....

I have not been on this site for a while, so all of my thoughts may have already been discussed. But here they are:
(1) Legislation was meant to be implemented through Congressional approval (voting), the President's signature, and confirmation of constitutionality if necessary.
(2) Polling of...
| Political Talk|| Real reasons for "Philisophical" differences - TheFinalWord on 2/12/13 at 11:25 am|
Very few people actually have philisophical differences regarding non-social governmental polices (economics, foreign policy, etc.). Maybe a few academic types who have done studies and other research.
The politicians running for office purport to have philisophical differences, but they are actual...

It's simply sour grapes!
I hate to use a basic football analogy---but this is primarily a sports site.
"Obama didn't win, Romney beat himself". That's the cry on this board.
The rules were well known in advance, and Obama won fair and square. He won the electorol and the popular vote. A win is a ...

Obama is the equivalent of a football 10-point favorite in the election. Prior to the debate he was a 14-point favorite.

| Political Talk|| Why not keep lower taxes for some now - TheFinalWord on 7/10/12 at 11:05 am|
Why not lower taxes (extend cuts) for those making an annual income under $250,000 now, and fight out the "over $250,000" people later?
All of the electorate wants low taxes for the lower income tax payers---regardless of how they feel about the higher income tax payers. Why punish one group becaus...
