  1. Hey Tom, I disagree with you at 4:45

    In my opinion this is a p.r. stunt by the left to say “we tried to decriminalize it federally, but republicans shut it down” THINKING that’s what will happen but this is beyond the tipping point in my opinion. If this goes through and passes and President Trump DOES sign off on it, and this DOES become a reality and this furthers the economic growth under his presidency it’s going to be hard for the left to say “Yeah, federal prohibition of marijuana happened under Trump, the economy is booming and people’s record we’re expunged but vote for us”

    Conversely, Trump will be able to talk up the economy and helping minorities by signing a bill that expunged minority records.

    Even though it’s a democratic bill, when it becomes successful it will be a republican victory.

  2. Did anyone else say “lol” when he said “with the impeachment going on” and “whether or not Trump would sign it”. Trump already said he would sign it if it made it to his desk and there is no impeachment anymore lmao

  3. Will not get passed on the floor. The only reason it has made it this far is so they can say they voted for it for votes in the next election. It will not make it to a vote in on the floor, will get bogged down so that it never sees a vote, but Senators can say that they didn't vote against it.

  4. Thomas Jefferson said "if a law is unjust, a man is not only right to disobey it, he is obligated to do so."
    George Orwell said "a people who elect corrupt politicians, impostors, thieves and traitors are not victims; but accomplices."
    In The Matrix movie this is implied when Morpheus tells Neo the very people he is trying to save are the biggest threats, the people who vote, not necessarily bc they are bad but bc the are so enamored with this system that enslaves us all…
    George Carlin said it best though… it's a big club and you ain't in it, it's the same big club that they keep hitting you over the head with… something like that;-) Ez …we seek the truth because our curiosity exceeds our desire to prove ourself right:-)

  5. In what way will the communities receive some help from this?

    My thoughts when you mentioned the politicians not having an appetite to hear other bills because of the impeachment, and I agree with you man: Folks out here working their ass off, paycheck to paycheck in all kinds of conditions. And these more than well off highly paid politicians and the like, cant endure the hustle and grind. I know some off them got that quit in them, its weak, and frankly dishonorable. It's B.S. this is what they get paid so much damn money to do. Now damnit do it. Rant end.

  6. What if the MORE Act is more than just the legalization of weed? What if it's a political tactic to sway votes next year? You said that you didn't think Republicans probably won't even look at it or whatever because of them being caught up in the impeachment bs. That got me thinking. If Republicans shoot down the bill then people will know that it was them. If 67% of the population is in favor of legalizing marijuana then that 67% may just end up voting Democrat. I'm not Republican or Democrat but there are things that I agree with on both sides. When it comes to weed Democrats have my support.
