Penn Jillette Rips Obama On Anti-Drug Hypocrisy (InformationLiberation)
Penn Jullette let it rip on what a hypocrite Barack "I've Done a Little Blow" Obama is for his anti-drug policies. Penn points out if Obama's drug laws were applied to himself, he would have landed in prison rather than the White House.
"What troubles me about this... I think it's beyond hypocrisy. I think it's something to do with class. A lot of people have accused Obama of class warfare, but in the wrong direction. I believe this is Obama chortling with Jimmy Fallon about lower class people. Do we believe, even for a second, that if Obama had been busted for marijuana -- under the laws that he condones -- would his life have been better? If Obama had been caught with the marijuana that he says he uses, and 'maybe a little blow'... if he had been busted under his laws, he would have done hard f*cking time. And if he had done time in prison, time in federal prison, time for his 'weed' and 'a little blow,' he would not be President of the United States of America. He would not have gone to his fancy-a** college, he would not have sold books that sold millions and millions of copies and made millions and millions of dollars, he would not have a beautiful, smart wife, he would not have a great job. He would have been in f*cking prison, and it's not a god damn joke. People who smoke marijuana must be set free. It is insane to lock people up."
Penn goes on to point out he's never done any drugs nor drank and alcohol in his entire life, but he still recognizes it's insane to lock up non-violent people for non-crimes.
I would take this a step further and say Obama and his government cohorts should be locked up for their actual crimes of arresting and jailing free people for engaging in consensual voluntary actions. Drugs are a part of life, the majority of Americans take some sort of drug, be it stimulants or alcohol, people should not be imprisoned for happening to choose "the wrong drug."
I can't help but laugh at the fact the least harmful of all drugs, marijuana, is illegal, while the most harmful of all drugs, alchohol, is perfectly legal and according to Ron Paul, is the drug of choice of those in congress.
I say it's time to repeal these laws and start jailing those who enforced them.
