    This is what (authentic) freedom looks like, Fluffnutz.  Jobs.  Taxes.  Responsible choices by adults without interference from the Keebler Elf.  

    Colorado’s 2017 marijuana sales reach $1 billion in just eight months

    Legal marijuana is a bona fide billion-dollar industry in Colorado. And it’s hitting the mark faster than ever.

    In 2017, Colorado eclipsed $1 billion in marijuana sales in eight months; in 2016, it took 10 months.

    Colorado’s marijuana retailers logged upward of $1.02 billion in collective medical and recreational sales through August, according to The Cannabist’s extrapolations of state tax data released Wednesday. Year-to-date sales are up 21 percent from the first eight months of 2016, when recreational and medical marijuana sales totaled $846.5 million.

    This year’s cumulative sales equate to more than $162 million in taxes and fees for Colorado coffers.

    Did I miss something?  Has FEMA already left TX and FL? Someone missed their shift again.

    Atrios wasn’t writing about Z, eh?

    More editor errors……this thing makes it harder to enter and change comments in either formatted or html text than any other editor on almost every other blog I comment on.

    Editor = Loser. Sad!

    The airport bomber from last week you never heard of...

    In Asheville, NC, last Friday, October 6, a man left a bag stuffed with ammonium nitrate, fuel oil, nails and sharp objects unattended in the Asheville airport. It had a timer in it set to go off at 6 am, when the airport would be crowded with travelers.

    Fortunately, the surveillance team, bomb-sniffing dogs, and the first responders were on the ball. They found the abandoned bag, closed off the area, and found and arrested the perpetrator, a 46 year old white man named Michael Christopher Estes, whose motivation for planting the bomb was "to start a war on US soil". – Per Asheville Citizen-Times reporter John Boyles

    So not a Muslim. Not dark-skinned. Not a foreigner. Another white male American citizen adding to the count of 54% of mass shootings and bombings being carried out by white male citizens. This one certainly qualified as "terrorist", by his own statements about wanting to start a war here. 

    We await Trump's tweets proposing new restrictions on the movements, rights, or surveillance on white male citizens. Perhaps AC or PP or Moddy will pop up to demand suppression of this dangerous terrorist population…..not bloody likely.
