DYSPEPSIA GENERATION

We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Up in Smoke

13th February 2018

Read it.

I wrote here about the void in the Trump/Sessions, where four nominees for Assistant Attorney General positions are being held up due to Senate inaction. The four positions are crucial ones: Assistant Attorney General, Civil Division; Assistant Attorney General, Civil Rights Division; Assistant Attorney General, Criminal Division; and Assistant Attorney General, National Security Division.

Why can’t these nominees get a vote? Apparently, it’s because of marijuana. Sen. Cory Gardner is vexed with Attorney General Sessions over enforcement of Federal marijuana laws in Colorado.

It’s offensive that these archaic privileges are standing in the way of efficient government. It’s especially offensive that a Republican Senator is impeding a Republican administration in pursuit of so trivial a subject.
