    ? And would it not be possible in the act of doing so that’d you actually come to the conclusion that it did happen? So if it did happen,it wouldn’t be wise to have the FBI investigate. I feel that’s pretty basic logic

    'Make this go away or I'll fire you and get someone who will.' Sounds like he really had the best interests of the country at heart.

    media will report and say things their audience wants to hear

    for example, if CNN turned Fox and started espousing conservative causes, most of their viewers would desert them

    do you understand now?

    Well, he told him to prove it was false, then asked him for loyalty, then fired him when it became obvious that he intended to actually investigate.

    connor seems to think it is OK for the president to order the FBI to investigate Hillary Clinton, not investigate Russia interference, not investigate Michael Flynn, investigate the 'golden shower' allegation, etc

    that's how it works in Stalin's and Putin's Russia, connor

    you sure you want that in the USA?

    i guess in Russia they don't fire, they execute or poison. but then just yesterday, connor, you advocated the death penalty for drug dealers so.....

    I kinda wish I hadn't perma-banned 4 Franklin accounts yesterday. He'd be trolling connorp more effectively than I ever could right now.

    I don't know why he was banned. He could be annoying yes but that's not reason to ban.

    I was of this opinion but then he’d go on rants trying to get banned. So he had it coming. But otherwise I didn’t think he was too bad

    I was just playing devils advocate with drug dealers. I do however believe in stiff sentences for drug offenses. Depending of course; dealing vs personal use, if the offender has actually been a productive member of society, etc

    LSD is currently illegal in the USA. It is non-toxic (you'd have to eat a shit ton to OD) and is used by many intellectuals as a psychedelic.

    So someone dealing LSD, a harmless drug, should be locked away forever in your view?

    I didn’t use LSD much but did a lot of ecstasy in college. A lot lol. Shit puts holes in your brain and lsd I’m sure does too

    As for who I’d throw the book at, it’d be a case by case basis. If your example of lsd isn’t so bad I guess there’s no big deal (to you I mean) but when you’re talking about people selling heroin that’s killing kids and crack that’s destroying communities, it’s a bit diff

    there are already stiff penalties, making them stiffer will just cost you more to keep people in jail

    meanwhile, some other shithead will take over the drug market

    anyone that thinks the drug war can be won is pretty dumb

    spending more on education and community outreach and less on enforcement and jails probably be more effective use of $$

    Psychedelics are not harmless. People can do a lot of crazy shit on them, and end up hurting themselves or others.
    Not saying they should be locked up, but government should provide info as to the dangers of these drugs, instead of lumping all drugs together and saying 'bad'
