This is REALLY good!
The general subject is one I hold very highly. Also I was amused at Penn talking about how he doesn’t do or like drugs. Back in 2002 my roommate and I were sitting around our apartment in Portland drinking beers and talking about pot legalization (neither of us bother with the stuff much, but we do like beer) and our lament was that Pot legalization back then was doomed to fail because it was “In the hands of the stoners”. Thankfully now lots of non-stoners are coming forward against drug prohibition.
Also like Penn I’m more concerned about the freedoms of the people I like the least than the freedoms of the people I really like. Hell I live in Massachusetts and I HAVE lots of guns. I HAVE lots of guns because I and my wife have good jobs and we can afford all the nonsense it takes to BUY guns, keep guns, and keep up with the stupid laws, as well as select where we live on how they treat gun owners.
Also like Penn I think more freedom makes us ALL better, and it makes us all better because as a whole we are mostly good people, and even the more obnoxious people out there won’t cause much trouble if you take the .gov boot off their neck.
Meanwhile the “Progressives” seem to LOATH their species. Not only do they make outlandish claims about us destroying the world, but they claim that we are nothing short of a few laws away from horrible Anarchy of a Cormack McCarthy level.
I don’t like Cormack McCarthy, his books are no fun to read, not realistic, and I suspect he’s a horrible person. Also I want him to be free to write more lame books.
