If they had just made "stupid" illegal the economy would not be in the shape it is in today. It is not the government's responsibility to protect people from themselves, eq. bad decisions. That's what parents (supposedly) do for their children.
youre missing the point....
the govt isnt protecting people from themselves in this case.
the govt is protecting people from OTHER people, which is what the govt is here for.
the housing market has crashed because the govt refused to regulate it. lenders were allowed to give money to people who couldnt afford because realtors were allowed to falsify documents.
i didnt overspend, others did. now IM suffering for what OTHERS have done because the govt CHOSE to ignore the problem. they knew about it, but they chose to ignore it.
its similar to drunk driving...someone who doesnt drink gets killed by someone who did.

Dead silence would have been a better form of protest. Politicians expect booing, the really hate being ignored.

I may be the only person in the country who doesn't wish Obama to do anything good. I want him to fail by all means. I don't have any desire to give this fag-loving, baby-killer an ounce of credit.

They should have been pelted with rocks and then lynched!
