Take a L.E.A.P at this

Where do Noam Chomsky, William F. Buckley, Barbara Ehrenreich, Milton Friedman, Howard Zinn and George P. Schultz find common ground?

On what controversial issue do they all agree?

And what does it say that these public intellectuals, coming from such widely varying points of view, have all examined the weight of evidence and reached the same conclusion?

    Steve, it is a convenience to the reader to embed a link like this: [a href="http://website.com"]TEXT[/a] The word TEXT will show up as a link.You have to replace the square brackets with angular ones, < >

    It couldn't be any worse than legalizing homogamy, so that Der Holy Mother Schtaat can claim jus prima noctae on sodomites as well as normals via palimony, higher taxes, socialized medicine and "child protective" services/"family" courts.
    I don't trust the current "Administration" or the one to come to administer this successfully; they'll probably use it to empower themselves further at your expense.

    While there are a wide variety of arguments that some could and would employ against legalization, I would simply assert that the same AMA and FDA that are keeping the "war" on drugs going for their own political and economic benefit("bureaucracy" would be a better term), are also keeping key beneficial drugs from being developed and deployed.
    Leitril is one example, as it threations a multi-billion-dollar chemotherapy-based industry which has achieved only marginal success.
    How many more have to die before we realize tradition isn't getting the job done?
