  1. They will probably do nothing unless their own fans want a change.
  2. The Cherokee Nation has nothing to withdraw except an opinion. About 41 years ago a Cherokee chief said that he supported what PNG was doing and now another comes along as says that he doesn’t. PNG did not request nor need the CN’s consent to name their team the Indians in the 1920s. They are the PNG Indians, not the PNG Cherokees Whether they remain the Indians is up to them. The CN has the right to voice their opinion and have done so.
  3. Is Indian offensive? Their national advocacy group in American government is the Bureau off Indian Affairs. www.bia.gov Their main rights organization is the National Congress of American Indians. www.ncai.org
  4. I have seen nothing that verifies this... which is a majority of Trump accusations. But you love to post topics but don’t comment. So let’s hear your solution if true. Declare war on Russia? Will Pelosi push for that war? Let’s see what the Dems have as a solution instead of just posting rhetorical questions.
  5. An opinion can’t be horrible?
  6. Police training and field sobriety testing is always needed even today. It can show probable cause but that alone is normally not enough to convict.
  7. There are two ways to show intoxication. You have to prove mental or physical impairment or you have to show an alcohol concentration of 0.08 or more. Alcohol is a per se limit. If the state can show an alcohol concentration of 0.08, nothing else has to be proven. With any other substance, you have to prove they are impaired and you have to prove that they are on some substance. A chemical test might show that they are on a subject but that alone is not enough to prove intoxication. So with a prescription, using Tylenol #4 is legal unless you use so much that it causes impairment. Merely showing that you were on the medicine is not enough to show intoxication. While a person may be impaired mentally, it is hard to show that on a video such as a body cam unless they are also physically impaired. If a jury can’t see you someone swaying then they are not likely to convict even though a person mentally was impaired. The point is that they have figured out and put into law that at a certain level alcohol and driving is illegal. There is no such test for any other substance and even though a person very well may be impaired, it is hard to show.
  8. It is always compared to alcohol and that is certainly regulated and taxed on every bottle and can. Alcohol is so regulated that a bar can’t run out of beer and have the owner go to a store and buy more to sell. It has to be delivered by a distributor for the purpose of resale at an on premises consumption licensed establishment. If we are going to regulate it like alcohol, then regulate it like alcohol.
  9. I am not against it IF..... it stays just as illegal if used in public. Buy it legally and use it only in your home (or anyone else’s), had a measurable per se limit for DWI and not around juveniles, I could not care less. So if the ballot said lawfully purchased from a licensed (tax) dealer, used only indoors at a private residence, made use before or while driving under DWI and not in the presence of children, I would vote yes.
  10. But if you are in Texas, you have to add and you have the right to terminate the interview at any time.
  11. I never said yea or nay. I just said your points were bogus.
  12. I didn’t put It in my first post but I am aware of the marijuana laws. When 1 out of 1,000 arrests are for a felony, I pretty much discounted it in the discussion. I was answering the discussion of prisons and marijuana. Also... Even in states with legal marijuana, it is still a crime per the OP rationale. In CO for example, the shining star of legalization, possession of more than one ounce is a crime but only a fine. Possession of more than 2oz., even legally purchased, is up to a year in the county jail. At 6oz it becomes what Texas world consider a felony of more than a year and 12oz is a felony. So the idea that legal marijuana would do anything to the jail or prison population is a fallacy.
