We're hearing a lot of talk lately about legalizing marijuana. Allow me to weigh in, as a lifelong construction worker and someone quite familiar with "stoners." And, no, I don't do drugs myself. On a purely philosophical level, I believe in the legalization of all drugs. Why? Because what you decide to put into your body is nobody's business. Feminists use a similar argument to justify murdering their own children, and getting high is certainly less of a crime than infanticide; only a madman would argue this point.
In response to the June 12 story, "Fergus Falls police looking to identify trespasser at Kirkbride Property": This is a chilling story because of both the camera and the police interest. The travesty of this modern age is that readily-available technology serves the insatiable power-mania of the enforcer class. Whereas it was once accepted that kids will be kids, now young people face possibly having their lives damaged just for being... well, stupid young people.
In response to the letter, "Kanye West is right about freedom of thought," published May 2nd: Kanye West is absolutely right. Conservative blacks are being slandered like crazy for embracing right-wing ideals. Bill Cosby has been crucified for his "pull your pants up" comment, and the radical left has ruined his legacy with scurrilous, unfounded charges.
This is an open letter to all of those who participated in the Fargo march intended to blaspheme the Bill of Rights: For starters, Moms Demand Action is not a 'non-partisan' group; Shannon Watts is a die-hard liberal harpy whose actions are controlled by the billionaire tyrant Michael Bloomberg (a man who once boasted that he commanded 'the world's largest private army' as the mayor of New York City). The NRA, however, is a non-partisan group, indiscriminately endorsing any politician who supports gun rights.
In response to Aaron Forde's anti-Confederate column published Feb. 9: Perhaps it's best to examine the Confederacy through the lens of its arch-enemy, Lincoln. Lincoln was elected due to an extreme imbalance in the electoral college, resulting in a win without representing a single southern state. Why was this bad news? Because a manufacturing-based economy requires protective tariffs to survive, and an agricultural economy requires free trade (lest it go broke importing goods that it cannot manufacture.) Lincoln's financial agenda was a cause for panic in the rural South.
Regarding Mark Covey's response (Inforum Dec. 28) to my sharp criticisms of the Feminist Movement... Mark wrote that The Forum gave this troll his victory and will perpetuate his glee when readers angrily respond. He's right, of course, but I'm nevertheless surprised by his observation. Most liberals aren't that perceptive; they generally appear oblivious to the fact that I'm yanking their chain.
And the word of the day still seems to be "sexual harassment." Feminism wants to create a world in which an unverifiable, vague, and often vengeful accusations can cause a man to lose his career, his reputation, and his family—all without a criminal conviction. Feminists will not be satisfied until they are holding all the cards, and men have no say in anything. (Until, that is, a war pops up and they need us to protect them. In that case, men can say whatever they want until the threat has passed and women feel safe enough to scream "discrimination" once more.)
So Bruce Maxwell (a catcher for the Oakland A's) is in trouble for taking a knee during the national anthem. Once again, the blind nationalists are enraged. Dance, puppet, dance! I was born in Virginia, a state that lawfully and justifiably seceded from the union in protest of Lincoln's tax policies. The slavery issue is a red herring, a bait-and-switch fabricated to cover the Union's horrific war crimes.
According to a story published in The Forum Sept. 10, Thomas Conway is one of the first to be charged under Minnesota's 'Revenge Porn' law.
As the battle over Obamacare's repeal heats up, we're hearing more and more sob stories about the '18-21 million' who will 'lose their insurance.' Look, I'm a native of crime-ridden, run-down Norfolk, Virginia. The whole region is overrun with lazy bums who won't work because... well, they just don't feel like it, and these are the people that the ACA was written for.
