Senators Outraged CIA May Have Spied on Intelligence Committee

Note that this is completely separate and a different matter than the NSA electronic wiretapping of the same congress.

“These allegations have serious constitutional implications that go to the heart of the separation of powers, and I intend to monitor the situation closely,” Leahy said.

CIA and senators in bitter dispute over Capitol Hill spying claims

“John Brennan, the director of the CIA, said the claims by members of the Senate intelligence committee were “spurious” and “wholly unsupported by the facts”, and went as far as suggesting the committee itself may have been guilty of wrongdoing.”

“If you can’t control drug use in a maximum security prison, how can you control drug use in a free society?”

Listen up, screwheads. I know this blog is being monitored by some people not here of their own personal curiosity.

PORTUGAL legalizes all drugs. They treat anyone arrested with drugs as an opportunity to help that person. They offer treatment to addicted persons. RESULT: Drug use declines across every single category.

During the early-to-mid-1990s, the Clinton administration ordered and funded a major cocaine policy study, again by RAND. The Rand Drug Policy Research Center study concluded that $3 billion should be switched from federal and local law enforcement to treatment. The report said that treatment is the cheapest way to cut drug use, stating that drug treatment is twenty-three times more effective than the supply-side “war on drugs”.–Wikipedia

This was, of course, ignored. But is, of course, empirically true and proven in Portugal and other nations. Outlawing the personal use of mind-altering substances also VIOLATES THE US CONSTITUTION, AMENDMENT 9:

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
