    Happy Mothers day, Pete’s mom!

  • primus

    and all moms, everywhere.

    I was wondering, do the prohibitionist extremists (e.g. Kevin Sabet) have moms?

    • it reminds me of a cartoon I watched years ago when a scientist cloned a superhero to make a weapon for the government and before she was sent on her first mission she thanked the scientist for raising her and called him Dad. This shocked him because he never viewed the relationship as parental. I can only assume the scientists who genetically engineered Kevin and the lot probably started running as fast as they could their creations called them daddy or mommy. So I would say yes they do, but not in the traditional sense.

      Also, happy holiday Pete’s mother. You have a great deal to be proud of. I can only hope my son grows up to be the sort of selfless humanitarian yours has.

    • darkcycle

      That’s self evident, of course they do. I think the real question is “Should we wish THEM a Happy Mother(F****r)’s Day?”

        Nah, it’s embarrassing enough to have the delivery room doctor slap you instead of the newborn infant. Sure, some of them deserve it but let it be for their own perfidy, not that of their bastard progeny.

      They must have parents, someone has to pay for their obscene weddings. What I want to know is how does Kevin square his Bahá’í Faith with his drug policy work?

        Pete, it looks like my comment got sent to the Spam corner. Any chance you could rescue it?

      Lots of things I never thought possible have happened since I was born. A man carried not just one, but two babies to term, another women had octuplets, Dolly the sheep, etc. I thought perhaps the prohibitionists are a product of Monsanto or something similar, maybe a pharmaceutical company run amuck. They surely do appear to be missing something basic in their genetic makeup.

      Well maybe genetically engineered/artificially produced humans are still quite a few years in the future.

      Huh? You need to watch a movie called “Cool Hand Luke”. I think we have a failure to communicate. Quoted from the article linked:

      Private companies got in on the spoils, but the primary beneficiaries have been local sheriffs, who use the per-diem payments from the state to finance their departments and to pump jobs into moribund rural economies.

        Did someone mention the “gateway effect”?

        Tennessee Sex Ed Bans Mention of “Gateway Sexual Behavior”

        By MARISA TAYLOR
        May 13, 2012

        If marijuana is the gateway drug, are kissing and handholding the gateway to sexual activity?

        That’s currently up for debate, now that Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam has signed into law the controversial bill that would ban teachers from discussing any so-called gateway sexual activity like genital touching in sex education courses, as reported on Friday by the Nashville Tennessean.

    A Happy Day to mommygov which keeps us safe from evil scummy druggies and Comrade Dear Leader promised me a unicorn! A glorious future awaits comrades in the great leap forward!

      Did you mean: “hoptopia”? BTW it’s a pony you were promised, not a unicorn. Didn’t you get yours? IIRC DC would like to get rid of his. I let mine run free. But only because it had no name, so I couldn’t call back to me.

      • claygooding

        If DC has one it probably looks like the one Peter gave Meg.

      • darkcycle

        You want this damn pony? I’ll give you five dollars to take it to the glue factory. And I’m stuck with the thing until the election.
        You can help help darkcycle get rid of this equine interloper: Vote Johnson-Grey!
        P.S. hopetopia, you can have the horse crap too, but it sounds like you’re full of it already.

          I think you need to get your wiggler detector to the shop for repairs. He couldn’t even spell hopetopia. WTF is hopteopia? It sounds like an online encyclopedia for beer nuts.

          It’s Gray doggoneit! Gray, with an effin’ A.

          The above is just plain silly by design. Seriously though, I was wondering if anyone else has ever noticed a previous Mother’s Day with so many calls for ending the war on (some) drugs?

  • thelbert

    happy mother’s day to all the mothers associated with this couch. may you be happy every day.

  • Some light-hearted fun regarding opiate abuse from XKCD. I guess this could also be regarded as a tribute to all working mothers…

  • primus

    Now that the women are organizing, the WOSD is doomed. Once women decide something is hurting their babies, they block vote and whatever they want is what happens.
