There's nothing wrong with more people finding more joy in life. Until you can show otherwise, there's no reason for anyone to get upset.

I'm certain that what we'll find with the recent "vape lung" hysteria is a pesticide or fungicide with a boiling point near THC. All of the cases I've read about mention THC vapes as a possible cause. Some growers will use any chemical they can get their hands on to save their crops, especially as the price drops as it has been due to to legalization and they get more desperate for revenue.

Extraction with solvents will take any chemicals present along with the cannabinoids and concentrate them into the hash. For vaping, the extract is further processed by fractional distillation, which separates out a substance's various constituents by virtue of their differing boiling points. Any chemicals present with a boiling point similar to THC will end up in the THC fraction. So what we have is a super concentrated extract of THC and some unknown harmful chemical with a similar boiling point that was present on the unprocessed cannabis. Needless to say, super concentrated extracts of pesticides and fungicides should not be ingested.

It is different, though. This isn't some new spending spree, this is a prior obligation for events that already took place. This is money we owe for a legitimate debt to the people who put their lives on the line and are now dealing with chronic debilitating conditions. He said on Twitter that he didn't block the bill. But without any objection, it would've passed. So how is that not blocking?

I also find it a bit upsetting that he labels all criticism coming his way over this as "the left brigade". That's a bullshit copout that shows he feels he's done nothing wrong. I was a state delegate for his father both times around and am most certainly not part of any left brigade.

Libertarians are supposed to respect contracts as the foundation of free enterprise. These men and women entered a contract with their government to provide services to the public. During the execution of that contract, they incurred lasting injuries that impact their quality of life and earning ability. The government which contracted them is liable for those damages. Period, end of debate, if you're a principled libertarian.

Of course you can, because Clinton is a pedo too. Trump has his own plane.

Just look at Trump's Secretary of Labor. You know, the guy responsible for tracking human trafficking in the US, who was rewarded with the position by Trump for letting his pedo buddy Epstein off the hook. If Trump wanted to stop kiddy diddlers, that's the last guy he would've promoted.

Or have a look at how Epstein kidnapped children into sex slavery. He used a modeling agency that he said he wanted set up "Just like Trump's".

How does two responsible adults smoking methamphetamine privately in their free time have to do with you?

It doesn't.

What effect could that possibly have on your life?

None. If they then to decide to steal, that's an entirely different act that is rightfully illegal, because stealing requires a victim.

Marriage is a construct our society was built around, and because of that has proven to be a valuable.

Since you like strawmen, so was slavery. How valuable do you consider it to be?

Downfall of western civilization

The hallmark of western civilization is personal freedom. Freedom to say what you want, worship how you want, and for adults to fuck how we want. Treating parts of personal freedom ala carte because you don't like what someone else does has proven to be destructive.

There can be nothing more natural than sexual reproduction. Marriage, on the other hand, is a modern, man made prison built for control. Two people are perfectly capable of raising children without ever even being aware of the concept of marriage.

And sexual deviancy? In what way does the private sexual relations of others impact your life negatively? I'd say it's likely that a lack of tolerance would have a greater negative impact on a person's life.

  1. Or, more likely, OP used the snipping tool to grab the part he was most outraged by because the full text wouldn't fit with the title. Go ahead and pull it up. Unless you're running 4K, it's not fitting on your screen.

  2. See 1. OP took a snip of that part of the law, and combined it with the header showing the name of the law, resolution number, sponsor, committee, etc. In other words, context that enables anyone to find the whole law and read it themselves.

if you take a section of something and say it's the entire thing

Yeah, but that didn't happen. Where did the post say that was the entire law? OP picked the part that was most disturbing to them, highlighted it and shared it. The additional context doesn't take away from the post, IMO. Our legislature has far more pressing issues than worring about Jewish persecution in Europe. The fact that they're spending their time writing, debating, and passing stuff like this supports the OP's position that Jews have much influence over the US government, and nobody has posted anything to counter that specific argument.

In other words, what was represented as a new law by the US Congress was, in fact, merely a definition given by the EUMC (quoted in an act requiring an increase in reporting stuff going on in Europe).

When congress passes legislation and the president signs it, it is the law. To suggest it isn't.. that would be lying.

Full text of the Law:

AT THE SECOND SESSION Begun and held at the City of Washington on Wednesday, the third day of January, two thousand and eighteen

To require continued and enhanced annual reporting to Congress in the Annual Report on International Religious Freedom on anti-Semitic incidents in Europe, the safety and security of European Jewish communities, and the efforts of the United States to partner with European governments, the European Union, and civil society groups, to combat anti-Semitism, and for other purposes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “Combating European Anti-Semitism Act of 2017”.

SEC. 2. Findings.

Congress finds the following:

(1) During the past decade, there has been a steady increase in anti-Semitic incidents in Europe, resulting in European Jews being the targets of physical and verbal harassment and even lethal terrorist attacks, all of which has eroded personal and communal security and the quality of daily Jewish life.

(2) According to reporting by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), between 2005 and 2014, anti-Semitic incidents increased in France from 508 to 851; in Germany from 60 to 173; in Belgium from 58 to 130; in Italy from 49 to 86; and in the United Kingdom from 459 to 1,168.

(3) Anti-Zionism has at times devolved into anti-Semitic attacks, prompting condemnation from many European leaders, including French Prime Minister Manuel Valls, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

(4) Since 2010, the Department of State has adhered to the working definition of Anti-Semitism by the European Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC). Some contemporary examples of anti-Semitism include the following:

(A) Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews (often in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion).

(B) Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such, or the power of Jews as a collective, especially, but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government, or other societal institutions.

(C) Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, the State of Israel, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.

(D) Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.

(E) Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interest of their own countries.

(5) On October 16, 2004, the President signed into law the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act of 2004. This law provides the legal foundation for a reporting requirement provided by the Department of State annually on anti-Semitism around the world.

(6) In November 2015, the House of Representatives passed H. Res. 354 by a vote of 418–0, urging the Secretary of State to continue robust United States reporting on anti-Semitism by the Department of State and the Special Envoy to Combat and Monitor Anti-Semitism.

(7) In 2016, the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA), comprised of 31 member countries, adopted a working definition of anti-Semitism which stated: “Anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”.

(8) The IHRA further clarified that manifestations of anti-Semitism might also target the State of Israel, conceived of as a Jewish collectivity. Anti-Semitism frequently charges Jews with conspiring to harm humanity, and it is often used to blame Jews for “why things go wrong”. It is expressed in speech, writing, visual forms, and action, and employs sinister stereotypes and negative character traits.

SEC. 3. Sense of Congress.

It is the sense of Congress that—

(1) it is in the national interest of the United States to combat anti-Semitism at home and abroad;

(2) anti-Semitism is a challenge to the basic principles of tolerance, pluralism, and democracy, and the shared values that bind Americans and Europeans together;

(3) there is an urgent need to ensure the safety and security of European Jewish communities, including synagogues, schools, cemeteries, and other institutions;

(4) the United States should continue to emphasize the importance of combating anti-Semitism in multilateral bodies, including the United Nations, European Union institutions, and the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe;

(5) the Department of State should continue to thoroughly document acts of anti-Semitism and anti-Semitic incitement that occur around the world, and should continue to encourage other countries to do the same, and share their findings; and

(6) the Department of State should continue to work to encourage adoption by national government institutions and multilateral institutions of a working definition of anti-Semitism similar to the one adopted in the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance context.

SEC. 4. Annual reporting on the state of anti-Semitism in Europe.

Paragraph (1) of section 102(b) of the International Religious Freedom Act of 1998 (22 U.S.C. 6412) is amended by adding at the end the following new subparagraph:

“(G) ANTI-SEMITISM IN EUROPE.—In addition to the information required under clause (vii) of subparagraph (A), with respect to each European country in which verbal or physical threats or attacks are particularly significant against Jewish persons, places of worship, schools, cemeteries, and other religious institutions, a description of—

“(i) the security challenges and needs of European Jewish communities and European law enforcement agencies in such countries to better protect such communities;

“(ii) to the extent practicable, the efforts of the United States Government over the reporting period to partner with European law enforcement agencies and civil society groups regarding the sharing of information and best practices to combat anti-Semitic incidents in Europe;

“(iii) European educational programming and public awareness initiatives that aim to collaborate on educational curricula and campaigns that impart shared values of pluralism and tolerance, and showcase the positive contributions of Jews in culture, scholarship, science, and art, with special attention to those segments of the population that exhibit a high degree of anti-Semitic animus; and

“(iv) efforts by European governments to adopt and apply a working definition of anti-Semitism.”.
