458-508 – Have you noticed that we always have to tax our vices – tobacco, alcohol, gambling, the lottery, and now pot – to fund our "worthwhile projects for the children"?  This puts the government in the position of encouraging these behaviors to maintain revenue.  Essentially, the message is "sin more with our taxable products and services."  If supply goes up, prices go down, if prices go down you'll have more widespread use, especially among minors.  The drug cartels will become even more vicious as they fight to maintain their shrinking market share, either attempting to sell more pot, or selling more profitable drugs.  If they can't sell more pot, they'll sell more cocaine or heroin to maintain their revenue.  So, the legalization of pot will lead to more hard drug use.

If the drug cartels thought they'd make less money if pot becomes legal, they'd be buying commercials.  But they want it legal, because they know they'll make more money by selling other drugs.

• Fox News (10/25/2010) Obama Tells Republicans to 'Sit in Back'.  He said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, "we can't have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they gotta sit in back."

• (2:12) Reagan Clip

• LAT (10/25/2010) Transcript of President Barack Obama with Univision.  This is the post-racial President?  He doesn't call Ahmadinejad or Chavez his "enemy" but Republicans are?

(:30) Obama, Monday (10/25) on Univision, "Get Out There & Punish Your Enemies" – "Here's what we're gonna do. We're gonna see how well we do in this election and I think a lot of it is gonna depend on whether we still have some support not only from Democrats, but also Republicans, but they're gonna be paying attention to this election.  And if Latinos sit out the election instead of saying, we're gonna punish our enemies and we're gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us, if they don't see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it's gonna be harder and that's why I think it's so important that people focus on voting on November 2."

(:43) Obama, Monday (10/25) on Univision, "I Am Not King" – "What we're trying to do is to build a consensus in the country that says, this is the right thing to do, that we've got some bipartisan support. I've met with the Congressional Hispanic Caucus many times, I've met with immigration rights groups many times. I have not backed off of this issue. Just a few months ago, I gave a speech outlining very clearly my support for comprehensive immigration reform. My cabinet has been working very hard on trying to get it done, but ultimately, I think somebody said the other day, I am president, I am not king. I can't do these things just by myself. We have a system of government that requires the Congress to work with the Executive Branch to make it happen. I'm committed to making it happen, but I've gotta have some partners to do it."

• Mercury News (10/24/2010) Jerry Brown visits black churches in LA.  The churches listed in the story are:  Little Zion Missionary Baptist Church in Compton, Los Angeles' Holman United Methodist Church, and First African Methodist Episcopal Church.  Brown was joined along the way by other Democratic candidates, such as San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, who is running for lieutenant governor and San Francisco District Attorney Kamala Harris, who hopes to be the next state attorney general.

(:35) Jerry Brown on CNN in 1992 about his first stint as Governor: 'It's All a Lie… I Didn't Have a Plan for California' – 
CNN:  "And you said something a moment ago that I have to follow up on, and I have to draw you out on.  You said, you don't have to lie anymore now that you're not a politician.  What did you lie about when you were Governor?  
BROWN: "It's all a lie, I didn't have a plan. Alright, here's what.  You run for office and the assumption is, oh, I know what to do.  You don't.  I didn't have a plan for California.  Clinton doesn't have a plan. Bush doesn't have a plan.  You say you're going to lower taxes, you're going to put people to work, you're gonna improve the schools, you're going to stop crime... crime is up, schools are worse, taxes are higher. I mean, be real." (Breitbart)
