How would you and SD being more libertarian handle legalizing pot knowing the government would regulate it to prevent it from being the low standard "imports" we see today? To me regulation makes products be it consumer, energy, food cleaner.
As long as the federal government is not regulating it, I'm fine with it. Let each state handle that individually, as they see fit.

Re: The Common Ground thread

Let states and/or local governments handle it, is my solution to 90% of all issues, give or take.

Agreed. And treat driving while high the same as you would DUI, with harsh penalties.

Of course this means we need a reliable test, but that's out of my league lol. I think we all agree on decriminalization of weed though.

I'm a southerner by birth so I can have some appreciation for letting states and local governments handle most things. (I do draw the line on protection of our common resources). My dad worked in the White House during the Reagan administration and we have this discussion all the time about military spending. He has convinced me that we could cut military spending by half and use that at the state level for policing and mental health and we would easily save more American lives annually.

If it was up to me, I'd eliminate a lot of departments, agencies, etc., altogether. And all the ones remaining would get a 10% cut in 2022, including military spending.

Re: The Common Ground thread

will the Republican Party nominate a respectable person with conservative value (Kasich, Romney) or will the Republican base nominate the loudest racist again?

No common ground till both parties take care of their own issues internally.

Re: The Common Ground thread

Didn't really know exactly where to place this.

Troops are being taken out of the middle east. IMO, fucking awesome.

Cutting the troops in Afghanistan from 4500 down to 2500 and in Iraq from 3500 down to 2500 is progress. I'd go 0 in both, but still progress.

And here comes The Turtle calling this a rapid withdrawal. Only a politician thinks 19 years is rapid.

Geez Louise.

Bump.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/polit...Q1g?li=BBnb7Kz

I'm happy to shit on Dems who prioritize big pharma ahead of their constituents. Also happy to shit on any lawmaker that allows private companies to write laws benefitting the company and then accepts a job lobbying on behalf the company that paid the lawmaker to pass the law.

Re: The Common Ground thread

I didn't think things could get this serious! What is the world coming too?

"Canada releases 50 million pounds from maple syrup reserve amid global shortage.

Canadian maple syrup producers are tapping the country’s emergency reserve of the sticky sweet stuff as it looks to meet demand amid a global shortage.

The Quebec Maple Syrup Producers — a group known as the world’s maple syrup cartel and sometimes compared to the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries grip on oil — announced this week that it’s pulling some 50 million pounds of syrup from its strategic reserve.

That’s the most the group has released from the reserve in a single season since 2008 and amounts to about half of the entire stockpile....."

Re: The Common Ground thread

https://www.reuters.com/investigates...rce=reddit.com

This is pretty damning - Jay Carney (ex-comms director for VP/Biden and Obama press secretary) has been working for Amazon the last 6 years and he's been leading the charge to eliminate privacy protections for American citizens worried about how companies collect and sell their data.

I think both sides can agree this is less than ideal for everybody.

Well, the issue is we are the world hegemonic power. That is expensive. Would you want to cede that? We already are seeing the ramifications of our surrender in Afghanistan cutting the defense budget in half would be pouring gas on a fire.

There is always some common ground - otherwise the Infrastructure bill and the debt ceiling raise would have failed.
