    I am suggesting that politicians shouldn't always talk. They should also listen.

    NY and NJ wanted to make progress on the topic recently but they could not work out a few details. Now they're saying they're taking another look and will work with neighboring states to make the serious concerns (like buying and transporting over state lines) addressed.

    Cynicism that politicians can't resist millions of tax dollars makes me wonder the true motivation. My long term belief is that those who would buy it legally are 99% those who are already buying without paying taxes and keeping crime stats strong. It's worked for a long while in several states and society hasn't collapsed. Ultimately it will be legal nationwide because while really old white men want to portray it as similar to Heroin, it's actually similar to beer. We know the alcohol industry is quite strong. I believe it should be legal everywhere and it won't cause problems. I also think it should be used or enjoyed at home or without unfocused driving.

    It will be interesting to see how the topic continues to develop.

    Many more died as a result of alcohol versus Opiods but the alcohol lobby is strong and well funded.

    Cesar Milan should not be president. However I have watched a few episodes of his show The Dog whisperer and it's interesting how many people's lives are hell and a new fresh approach shows that behind aggression is often fear. A broader understanding leads to better handling of a bad situation and remarkable results.

    This type of an open minded seeking of new knowledge could help a politician towards a better messaging towards frustrated voters. A lack of affordable healthcare and employment wherein too many need more than one job to survive are symptoms of the situation where people don't know who to vote for or what the answers are to the dozens of pressures they face on a daily basis. I am suggesting the dog doesn't really hate the school bus when they go crazy at the front door. They're afraid of something and need to learn to change their thought process. Many weren't wanting to vote for a reality Tv host but they didn't like their choices. This years Democratic field is typical of what's typically served. Too many are Not getting more in depth with the factors causing fear and frustration within the voting base.

    The options for Democrats are more of the same and that doesn't inspire many to vote when they're frustrated and doubting that their vote matters.

    If you can't come up with your own Facebook rebuttals perhaps you should give up on social media. I question your motives. I hope I am wrong but a prolonged he said she said sounds like elementary school.

    Trump just retweeted a QAnon conspiracy theory to his 68,000,000 followers. According to the New York Times, Trump has retweeted at least 145 unverified accounts that have promoted conspiracy theories. More than two dozen of the accounts have been suspended by Twitter for violating the platform's rules.

    The QAnon theory centers around the belief that there is a covert plan to overthrow Trump, supposedly led by Hillary Clinton and the "deep state".

    68,000,000 followers who vote 100% of the time. Time for plan B, C, or D. January of 2025 is a long time away.

    It will certainly lead to a huge recession like always. Republicans will blame it on everything and everyone who's not them.

    Although we now have two threads about the same topic, I'll all another comment to this one, since the arguments seem a little more balanced.

    I researched Paul Malloy to see if he had and conservative leanings, but all I found was that he has been a judge since 2002, and he has been an attorney for more than 20 years. Although we all need to be suspicious of voter purges, Schmidt succinctly summed up the process because sometimes there ARE valid reasons for removal of some voters from the rolls.

    Verifying the accuracy of voting lists has been an issue for a very long time. There have always been rumors that many deceased people in graveyards in Cicero voted for mayor Richard J. Daley in Chicago, even though there is no factual evidence to prove it.

    https://ballotpedia.org/Paul_Malloy:

    When I moved to Florida I registered to vote. I got a notification that I was still registered in the state I had come from. I had to cancel my previous registration to proceed. It's nice to see actual checks and balances.
