And how it's basically gonna pass? I'm interested to see what happens after that, what with drug-testing at jobs and federal inconsistencies. Prop 19 didn't pass by a pretty slim margin, so this could be a pilot state for seeing how harmless legalization actually is.

Of course, minor possession in California for weed is such a light slap on the wrist that it's practically legal already.

If you're going to raise women's pay to match men's, you should also give men the ability to take paternity leave.

Imagine a world where babies aren't neglected and at least one of the parents gets 6hrs of sleep a night!

Wait, men can't get paternity leave in the USA? They should try to be more like Atheist Sweden.

Basically. It's so that the police are more inclined to protect the tax payers and job creators, thus leading to a good economy.

TELL ME IN YOUR INFINITE WISDOM HOW THE GODDAMN FUCK THIS MAKES SENSE.

Privatized police would mean they go towards the highest bidder, and protect their interests. Taxes are paid to a government, so why would a mercenary force have any incentive to protect them? Instead, Bain Capital would just pick all that shit up and Romney would become Supreme Mormon Dictator of America, instead of just president.

Currently, police forces need to be protecting minorities. Blacks, dapper gentlemen, and the poor. Please, enlighten me as to how these groups would be able to pay a privatized police force, instead of whitey just picking up the tab and telling them to fuck off.

:phil: Doesn't that go against one of the basic principles of the state, namely that the state has a monopoly over the use of violence, as well?

Police should protect everyone. Sadly, they sometimes kinda suck. I can only imagine mercenary bands to be even more gung-ho.

Well, the government has a shitton of money, so they can afford to pay mercops for years. The Mercs will protect both the gov't and the job creators, thus leading to more work and more produced goods leading to a healthy economy.

Poor, blacks and dapper people will be protected as long as they work for the United States or the Job Creators.
