I’m almost back from the dead. Wow, never hurt my back like that before, that was a bad one. Still not completely over it, especially in the mornings but much, much better.
I’ve been wondering when all the conservatives would balk at Kinky for governor. There have been a lot of them pushing Kinky just for change, totally ignoring his positions or stating, as I have here, that he can’t do anything about abortion anyway. Well, they finally clued in to his stance on marijuana, decriminalizing it and freeing the current crop of prisoners.
Marijuana is a gateway drug and the only people that debate that point are the stoners themselves. Sure, not everyone who takes a toke runs out and snorts a line. But a lot do. Or insert a needle. Thats just the facts, ignore them if you wish. So no, I don’t think that we should decriminalize marijuana.
So, he wants to release all the people in prison for marijuana possession. Can we say New Orleans refugees, here we go again? Can you imagine the crime rates if he actually pulled this off? Yeah, I know, most of crime would be stealing Cheetos or Muncho’s from convenience stores late at night but that isn’t the point. Crime would go up. Do we really want that?
Like I’ve said before, it would be really hard for me to vote for Kinky. Even if there are no other choices. But, he does have the best campaign slogan ever, Let’s de-wussify Texas!
