They're All Hypocrites

Montgomery Advertiser

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- The Alabama Democratic Party is running a television ad that criticizes the background of Bill Johnson, a campaign aide to Gov. Bob Riley and a former member of Riley's cabinet who once went 14 years without paying federal income taxes.

Johnson said Friday the ad does not accurately reflect his views or his past.

The ad targets Johnson's 1994 stand supporting legalization of marijuana and prostitution when he was a Libertarian candidate for the U.S. Senate in Missouri, as well as the unpaid taxes and a trip he took to Afghanistan as a 21-year-old college student in 1980.

A voice on the ad then says, "A question for Bob Riley: Why do you take advice from Bill Johnson when his values are different from ours?"

What makes the Democratic Party think that Johnson's views are different from the views of the rest of Alabamians? If the Democratic Party in Alabama thinks all of their members support locking up pot smokers...all I have to say is it's a good thing I don't toke & tell. MANY of their members are POT SMOKERS. Trust me...I know these things.

I think the more important point is that the drug war, (with special emphasis on marijuana law enforcement) is robbing the Democratic party of it's black support base. Way more black people go to prison in Alabama for marijuana possession than do white people. For years they have been denied the right to vote...ILLEGALLY...after receiving a marijuana conviction. If the democrats allow this to continue...hell even promote its continuance...then they deserve exactly what is rushing towards them like a landslide. They are participating in their own destruction.

As for Prostitution....well since Lucy has talked about how liberal Jesus was and she claims she is a liberal after the example of Jesus...let's have a look at what Jesus did in a situation where he faced a prostitute.

Jhn 8:1 "Jesus went unto the mount of Olives.

Jhn 8:2 And early in the morning he came again into the temple, and all the people came unto him; and he sat down, and taught them.

Jhn 8:3 And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,

Jhn 8:4 They say unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.

Jhn 8:5 Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?

Jhn 8:6 This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with [his] finger wrote on the ground, [as though he heard them not].

Jhn 8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.

Jhn 8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.

Jhn 8:9 And they which heard [it], being convicted by [their own] conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, [even] unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.

Jhn 8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?

Jhn 8:11 She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more.

Additionally, there is NOTHING in the bible that supports drug prohibition. NOTHING! Hell, Jesus's first miracle was turning water to wine. There are claims from theological scholars that the recipe for holy anointing oil found in Exodus was mutated in translation. Some Hebrew scholars say that it was originally "kanah bosem" which means cannabis or fragrant cane (marijuana) in Hebrew.

As for Bill Johnson's denial that he supports legalization of marijuana....HYPOCRITE. POLITICAL OPPORTUNIST. SWINE. FLIP-FLOPPER. WISHY-WASHER.
