I thought there was only two states that legalized weed and it had nothing to do with Obama.

Somehow, the Democratic party convinced everyone that putting Romney in office would end gay marriage, set women's rights back 50 years, and block weed legalization.
User avatar #168 to #117 - mcqwark (11/09/2012) [-]
I had no idea about the whole Romney taking away women's rights thing was about not too long ago and I thought they meant he was taking away their right to vote or get jobs or some **** but no... It was about abortion. And it was also false info. Romney wanted to give the states a choice if they wanted it or not like how America use to be but no... Liberals think that's unfair.

YUUUUUP! Those same state initiatives still could have passed even if Romney won.

obama did not legalize weed. it was a state decision or something.

It's funny because all of those were voter-initiated propositions, and none of them had anything to do with the President. God damn it OP, stop doing this 			****		.

Still has nothing to do with the propositions.

Do I really have to explain this to you? Go back and read the original post.
User avatar #200 to #196 - snaresinger (11/09/2012) [-]
Yes, you do have to explain it, because what you said has nothing to do with the fact that Barack Obama had nothing to do with the propositions.
User avatar #202 to #200 - graphically (11/09/2012) [-]

Here's a good .gif for you!   
   
To be honest, you seem to be some arrogant high school child who takes politics to be some sort of joke, and you irrationally defend the political side your parents side with. Even though I'm not attacking Obama, you feel compelled to attempt to demean my viewpoint-however, you've done a terrible job of it. And "patting me on the head" just makes you come off as a high school sophomore. It's time to stop attempting to talk politics over the internet until you have a few years under your belt.

I'm 20 year's old, in my third year of college. My mom is a republican, my dad's a democrat. I'm independent and voted for Jill Stein.

This isn't even about politics right now though. I'm trying to explain how short-sighted you're being. You insist that the post is about the propositions that were passed so the post doesn't make sense. I'm telling you that it's referring to the president's stances on the 3 mentioned issues which actually makes sense.

I'm really unsure how stupid you are right now so I'm going to explain this several different ways.

No one mentioned ANYTHING about the propositions
"gay rights, womens rights ... and some weed"
Those are things that Obama supports. It's not about the propositions that were passed, but what he supports that Romney opposed.

>No propositions
>Presidents Stances on those issues
>Now the post makes actual sense
User avatar #213 to #212 - snaresinger (11/09/2012) [-]
So... Obama has a stance on marijuana in the context of politics? If you can show me where you learned that, I will concede the argument.
User avatar #218 to #213 - graphically (11/09/2012) [-]
“My attitude is if the science and the doctors suggest that the best palliative care and the way to relieve pain and suffering is medical marijuana then that’s something I’m open to because there’s no difference between that and morphine when it comes to just giving people relief from pain. But I want to do it under strict guidelines. I want it prescribed in the same way that other painkillers or palliative drugs are prescribed.”

“I don’t think that should be a top priority of us, raiding people who are using … medical marijuana. With all the things we’ve got to worry about, and our Justice Department should be doing, that probably shouldn’t be a high priority.”

That's where he stands. Also, before you say it, yes, medical marijuana counts as "weed".

THE CITATION. FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAN, THE CITATION. IF YOU ARE INDEED IN YOUR THIRD YEAR OF COLLEGE, THEN YOU HAVE DOUBTLESS DONE UNCOUNTABLE RESEARCH PAPERS. GIVE IT TO ME APA STYLE BABY.
User avatar #220 to #219 - graphically (11/09/2012) [-]
I'm a computer animation and interactive media major. I haven't done a single research paper. Honestly, you have google, copy paste search man.

Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States, stated the following in a Mar. 22, 2008 interview with Editorial Page Editor Gary Nelson, published in The Mail Tribune:

"When it comes to medical marijuana, I have more of a practical view than anything else. My attitude is that if it's an issue of doctors prescribing medical marijuana as a treatment for glaucoma or as a cancer treatment, I think that should be appropriate because there really is no difference between that and a doctor prescribing morphine or anything else. I think there are legitimate concerns in not wanting to allow people to grow their own or start setting up mom and pop shops because at that point it becomes fairly difficult to regulate.
User avatar #223 to #220 - snaresinger (11/09/2012) [-]
I don't buy that ******** . I'm a music major and I do research papers that have nothing to do with my major, and some that do. You seem unfamiliar with the concept of "general education" courses. Quite the hole in your story.

It's not my job to do the research. If you want to debate, it's your job to cite your sources. If you don't have the source, then how do you have such a precise quote?

And finally, my final point: I've already had a debate with OP over this subject, so I know from context what he was talking about. Nothing you say really beats insider info. Good day.

Either way, there was a different way to look at the post that actually did make sense. That's all I was trying to point out.
User avatar #208 to #207 - snaresinger (11/09/2012) [-]
Are you still going on about this? Really? I stopped replying for a reason, because your replies completely deviated from the topic and you stopped making sense. There is nothing to be said further. Good day to you, sir/madame.
User avatar #210 to #208 - graphically (11/09/2012) [-]
You said the post was about the propositions so they make no sense.

The post does make sense though if you don't assume it's about the propositions, but Obama's stances on the issues.

You're not a very bright fellow now are ya?
User avatar #211 to #210 - snaresinger (11/09/2012) [-]
Congratulations on making a lick of sense! I'm very proud of you. Next time you might not want to resort to an ad hominem logical fallacy though- makes you sound completely childish. You'll eventually learn that when you come to the big boys table for talking politics. For right now though, I guess we're stuck with your itty-bitty cutie powitickeeeeees! Yaaaaaaay! But let's address your actual (terrible excuse for an) argument. The post was obviously about the propositions- there is a little thing in the adult world called "implication," and you would do well to learn how to recognize it. I can prove it, too! President Obama's platform has nothing to do with marijuana. The only reason OP would have included that is because he was referring to the recently passed (note: by the voters) legislation.

Next time, make sure you're not completely clueless about things such as logic, debate, rhetoric, current events, and politics before you try to argue with someone, hmm? Until you graduate high school and actually learn a thing or two about the world, nobody wants to hear the drivel that comes from your mind.
User avatar #214 to #211 - graphically (11/09/2012) [-]
I'm not even arguing with you. I'm just pointing out why you're wrong.

Why did I have to tell you two times to understand this? Comment #210 is just #204 reworded.

Obviously the only problem here is that you're reading into implications that don't make any sense.

Obama's is an advocate of looser laws regarding marijuana while Romney platform mentions the criminalization of all marijuana and the abolishment of the use of medical marijuana nation wide.

Comment #174: I tell you that it's about the candidate's stances on the issues. Romney's stance was to abolish gay marriage and abortions through constitutional amendments which opposes Obama's stances on those issues

#196: Is this really not obvious?

#202: It's not about the propositions.

#204: It's about the stances

#210: It's about the stances

#212: It's about the stances

I feel like I'm talking to a little kid.
User avatar #217 to #214 - snaresinger (11/09/2012) [-]
Also, I don't believe that you are twenty. Surely you would have taken a Psych class where you learned what an "argument" is. You are presenting an argument, and so am I. I never said we were "arguing" in the colloquial sense of the word.
User avatar #221 to #217 - graphically (11/09/2012) [-]
Argument:
An exchange of diverging or opposite views, typically a heated or angry one: "I've had an argument with my father".

I'm not telling you that you're wrong. I'm just trying to explain to you that there's more than one way to look at the post you complained about.

under the implications you assumed, then you're right. Obama had no play in the results of the propositions that were passed.
User avatar #215 to #214 - snaresinger (11/09/2012) [-]
Tell me where you got the info that he has a stance on marijuana.

Why do I have to ask you two times for you to understand this?

I obviously typed that and sent it before I got your reply. Have some common sense. I feel like I'm talking to a little kid.
User avatar #222 to #215 - graphically (11/09/2012) [-]
I researched the candidates before I voted.
You asked twice because I was replying to two different comments at the same time.

User avatar #204 to #203 - graphically (11/09/2012) [-]
Who said the direct juxtaposition had to be between Obama and the results of several propositions? Wouldn't it make much more sense if it was a reference to where he stands on those three issues? Seeing how if he wasn't elected, we would have Romney, who stated he wanted to stomp out gay marriage, women's right to have an abortion, and the decriminalization of medical and recreational marijuana with constitutional amendments.

Umm....hes given implicit consent on it several times. He even admitted to smoking in high school and college
#150 to #109 - anon (11/09/2012) [-]
And then he admitted he regretted doing it. Seriously, where do people come up with this garbage?
#57 - captainwow (11/09/2012) [-]
gay rights? Legal weed? Don't recall him doing either of those things his first four years. What makes you think he'll do them now? Also, the two states that have established these already did it of their own accord. And what exactly does he mean by Women's Rights? Are we going to legalize women and let them marry or something?

One last thing. He didn't kill Osama. A Navy Seal did.

User avatar #61 to #59 - lolollo ONLINE (11/09/2012) [-]
So you contradicted yourself.

OK.
#64 to #61 - captainwow (11/09/2012) [-]
Are young going to make a point and have a discussion with me, or just try to point out flaws that aren't there? I said " the two states that have established these already did it of their own accord."

1) Meaning yes, I know they just happened.
2) It's not a contradiction, I'm saying THEY DID IT THEMSELVES.
User avatar #197 to #64 - lolollo ONLINE (11/09/2012) [-]
Then what was the point of you saying "What makes you think he'll do them now?" when a) the "them" in question were already done, and b) you were just going to admit that later on in the comment?
User avatar #198 to #197 - captainwow (11/09/2012) [-]
Yeah I'm not gonna even bother reading whatever dribble you're writing this time.
User avatar #199 to #198 - lolollo ONLINE (11/09/2012) [-]
So you don't even know. At least admit it when you say **** you don't mean to say.
User avatar #112 to #57 - bgbba (11/09/2012) [-]
Well, in regards to the gay rights, he simply didn't enforce the dreaded DOMA. So he did actually do something, but not doing anything, if that makes sense. As for the weed thing, I cannot stand his continued support of the drug was. That's one thing that I REALLY dislike about his policies.
User avatar #114 to #112 - captainwow (11/09/2012) [-]
It boggles my mind how people give him credit for absolutely everything. I wasn't in favor of Health Care Reform, but at least he tried to push it through. Well, he tired, then gave up, and hasn't done anything with it since.

He hasn't shown any inkling of interest in giving gays rights. He never said anything about legalizing weed. I didn't agree with Romney on a lot of social issues, but it didn't seem like we were getting them from Obama, either.
User avatar #206 to #114 - bgbba (11/09/2012) [-]
Oh I agree about the weed, absolutely. In regards to gay marriage, it seems to be happening without federal help. Frankly, if it goes state by state then we don't have the eternal butthurt from the states that didn't want it in the first place. If you ask me, everything social should be state by state. The government should only guarentee basic liberties, such as civil rights. One could argue that gay marriage is a civil right, which I would agree with, but I'd rather that my state have it and the one that doesn't want it don't, that way there's less resentment. And yes, I support gay marriage all the way. It is true though that Obama has backed out on many promises like the drug war, and that pisses me off.

Romney was kind of against women, but it's not like he would have sent them to concentration camps or some **** .
But Obama DID give the orders for the raid on Osama's mansion. You have to admit he made a good choice.
User avatar #68 to #60 - captainwow (11/09/2012) [-]
I don't see how Romney was against women. In fact, I think he got more of their vote than Obama. That's not to say I liked Romney as a politican.

Also, I don't like how everyone gives Obama full credit. Yes, it was a smart move, but there were years of searching and intelligence-gathering before he was even in office. They make it sound like he did everything on his own.
#70 to #60 - timerce (11/09/2012) [-]
he also gave the order to kill a 16 year old american citizen with a drone just because he had the wrong dad though there was no evidence of the son ever doing anything wrong

#97 to #80 - knuckleheaded (11/09/2012) [-]
1. Don't assume what arguments I plan on using, it's unbecoming of you.
2. Two officials stated that the intended target was Ibrahim al-Banna, the supposed senior operative in the Arabian Peninsula.
Seems like you might've benefited from some research yourself. I'll concede that some unmentioned officials tried to pawn him off as in his mid 20's, but if you want to sit there and claim it was a deliberate strike, go ahead. I'll just sit here without a tin foil hat.
