Miss Universe speaks out against legalizing pot

by Clifford F. Thies

Miss Universe Olivia Culpo, who impresses us not only as intelligent but as intelligent in a mature kind of way, spoke against legalizing marijuana in an interview with Bill O'Reilly. She says legalizing marijuana sends the message that it's o.k. She then points out that different people have different reactions, perhaps intimating that for some people some forms of marijuana actually are o.k. She was also cool with medical marijuana.

FoxNews, "Miss Universe speaks out against legalizing Pot"

Here's what we, as libertarians, can say about marijuana or any other product or service, whether currently legal or illegal: caveat emptor ("let the buyer beware"). As libertarians we do not say legalizing anything means that it is o.k. We're not "nanny-staters." We also support freedom of association so that if an airlines wants to condition the employment of pilots on responsible use of intoxicants or total abstinence, which the liberals would call discrimination.

The number of people concerned with the Libertarian position on these topics is roughly equivalent to the number of people concerned with Miss Universe's position.

And the number of people interested in a comment in a comment thread by some guy who doesn't even bother posting under his real name, is about equivalent to Al Roker's soiled underwear.

The level of political discourse on this site (for example, references to Al Roker's underwear) reveals the reason for it's lack of relevance in mainstream politics. You can't post like a second grader and subsequently expect people to take you seriously.

Even second graders have names, you gutless fairy. You haven't even graduated to the level of a second grader.

Even the fairy in The Magic Kingdom has a name.

If he is, good for him.

Fools are "pretty sure" about all manner of things.

Now put that dick back in your mouth and get to work, nameless.

Does the international liberal conspiracy pay you guys to make Libertarians look like a bunch of bickering second graders??
