Marijuana to Low-Income Members

KNTV-TV [San Francisco, CA], by Chris Roberts & Cheryl Hurd

Medical marijuana dispensaries in Berkeley will likely soon be required to provide free pot to low-income members and homeless people, according to an ordinance approved by the city council on Tuesday. The city is also looking to approve a fourth dispensary, raising the current limit of three locations, as reported by the East Bay Express. The proposed ordinance requires that Berkeley dispensaries give away two percent of the amount of cannabis they sell each year low-income people. And the pot can´t be poor quality either. The proposed city ordinance reads (PDF) that the "medical cannabis provided under this section shall

The continued destruction of our society marches on. George Soros must be completely overjoyed at the success of his planned destruction, together with his puppet Barack Hussein Obama.

Berkeley thinking:

´´We have a tremendous homeless problem, with people coming from all over the country to be homeless here. We keep giving them more and more free services, but we still have lots of homeless. What can we do?´´

´´Mandate that other people give them free pot?´´

The whole pot legalization movement is a move toward ´free´ publicly financed pot. The theory being presented to the public to win support is that legal pot will kill off crime as drug dealers no longer have to kill to win market sha5re. The argument falls apart at the junkie side of the equation - junkies still need money to buy pot and if they can´t get it due to lack of money because they can´t hold jobs, well, they will continue to commit crimes to finance their habit. Ergo, the argument for giving junkies free money to buy pot.

You can´t have crime-free free trade in drugs without free money for the buyers as well.

Meanwhile, does it ever occur to these Berkeley muddleheads that the reason junkies are ´low-incomes´ is that they spend all their productive hours smoking marijuana?

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly shot back Thursday at former U.S. domestic terrorist Bill Ayers, who in a recent interview said that Kelly was has “very cold” eyes and that she’s “like a Cyborg.” “Only when I’m looking at a man who bombed the USA and home of a little boy, Bill!” Kelly wrote on Twitter.

Bill Ayers, according to the right, is Barack Obama’s terrorist trainer and ghostwriter. Upon further inspection, Ayers is nothing quite as dramatic or fearsome. While more famous for his anti-war activities as a founder of the Weather Underground in the 1960s and ‘70s, he is now a committed educator. Retired from his education professorship at the University of Illinois in Chicago, Ayers continues to give lectures to teachers in training, speak at education conferences and agitate against America’s two-tiered educational system – one for rich, one for poor – on behalf of low-income parents, students and instructors.

The Obama administration is ramping up its response to West Africa´s Ebola crisis, preparing to assign 3,000 U.S. military personnel to the afflicted region to supply medical and logistical support to overwhelmed local health care systems and to boost the number of beds needed to isolate and treat victims of the epidemic. President Barack Obama planned to announce the stepped up effort Tuesday during a visit to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta amid alarm that the outbreak could spread and that the deadly virus could mutate into a more easily transmitted disease.

President Obama next week will hit the road to receive updates on bombings against the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and efforts to contain the Ebola virus in Africa. White House press secretary Josh Earnest Friday said Obama would travel to Atlanta Tuesday for a briefing from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on both Ebola and a respiratory virus in the Midwest. The president on Wednesday will conduct a meeting with U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., to review the administration’s efforts to eliminate the Islamic State.

In a recent interview with Fox 25 TV in Oklahoma City, Senator Jim Inhofe, the ranking GOP member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, worries that the terror consortium that goes by the name of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is developing a megabomb to blow up an American city. “We’re in the most dangerous position we’ve ever been in as a nation,” he warns; ISIS is “rapidly developing a method of blowing up a major U.S. city, and people just can’t believe that it’s happening.” What kind of megabomb that might be, its precise components, and how

In early June 1964, a group of Republican governors sought to wrestle control of their party from Barry Goldwater, the Arizona conservative who was about to lead the GOP to one of the most crushing defeats in its history. The governors saw a disaster in the making, and sought a moderate candidate who could capture the imaginations of grassroots Republicans—but also beat President Lyndon Johnson in the general election. Led by Ohio’s James Rhodes—the Republican Governors Association was meeting in Cleveland, and Rhodes was a legendary vote counter—the group included Pennsylvania’s William Scranton and later New York’s Nelson Rockefeller.

As he laid out his strategy to combat the Islamic State in both Iraq and Syria, President Obama rejected the “best military advice” of his top military commander in the Middle East. Quoting two U.S. military officials, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday that Army Gen. Lloyd Austin, commander of U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM), said “that his best military advice was to send a modest contingent of American troops, principally Special Operations forces, to advise and assist Iraqi army units in fighting the militants.” Austin’s recommendation was taken to the White House by the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen.

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire — In front of a boisterous pub crowd of young voters here, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) ripped into President Obama over executive overreach and even vowed to repeal “all previous executive orders” in one of his first acts as president, should he run. Paul’s comments came to the New Hampshire chapter of Generation Opportunity, a national grassroots conservative group with a libertarian appeal with thousands of young liberty-minded activists nationwide engaged through it. Paul focused much of his remarks on executive overreach by President Barack Obama, saving some of his most interesting points for a question-and-answer session

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate.

Ed Royce (R-Calif.), who chairs the House International Relations Committee, told The Post of the Kurds.

That rare respiratory illness sickening children around the country continues to crop up in new places. It has been confirmed in 22 states, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday, appearing in three states where it had not been previously: Georgia, Michigan and Washington state. These children are facing an uncommon enterovirus strain. While enteroviruses in general are quite common, this particular strain — enterovirus 68 — has not cropped up terribly often since it was first identified in 1962. It can cause severe breathing problems, a particular danger for children who may suffer from asthma or other

A man who’s a better speechwriter than his speechwriters, a better political director than his political directors, and who knows more about policy than his policy advisors must surely also be a better general than his generals, no? The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said. The requirements for strikes in Syria against the extremist group Islamic State will be far more stringent than those targeting
