With your money and my brains we go places. Bus Ride? Why business move offshore? Why jobs disappear? Why 50 million on Food Stamps? Why National Debt continue rise?

President Obama begins Martha?s Vineyard vacation with a round of golf

Obama wrote openly in his 1995 memoir, Dreams From My Father, about using marijuana and maybe a little blow during his high school days in Hawaii in the 1970s. Biographer David Maraniss reported that Obama was even a pot-smoking trend-setter and leader in the Choom Gang. But decades later, openly reflecting on the stupid choices he made, Obama hinted that his career trajectory could have been different if he had been arrested and charged. A disproportionate number of young African-American men are put behind bars for low-level drug offenses, at 10 times the rate of whites, according to the NAACP . Its against this backdrop of personal http://gerryarizm.sosblogs.com/The-first-blog-b1/Hospital-where-Kim-Kardashian-had-baby-reportedly-axes-employees-for-hacking-her-medical-records-b1-p31.htm experience that Obama has been quietly retooling the governments five-decade war on drugs, treating it more as a public health issue than a battle against crime. Its a shift that today came to the fore. With an outsized, unnecessarily large prison population, we need to ensure that incarceration is used to punish, deter and rehabilitate, not merely to warehouse and forget, Attorney Kim Kardashian General Eric Holder said in announcing the changes to mandatory minimum prison sentences for drug offenders. The new sentencing guidelines are expected to dramatically diminish imprisonment of low-level, nonviolent drug offenders who have no ties to large-scale organizations, gangs or cartels. Instead, offenders will get sentences better suited to their individual conduct, including drug treatment and community service programs, says the Justice Department. These changes come on top of Obamas directive last year that federal prosecutors should back off on individual, recreational users of certain drugs.

Obama?s Own Drug Use a Backdrop to More Lenient Sentences

ZELENY: Before the hour was up, he even asked a question of his own, to a Wall Street Journal reporter, on the birth of her son. OBAMA: And Carol, congratulations on Hudson. Do you have pictures? ZELENY: Now, there were some serious moments, too. Of course the ongoing terror threats, that frigid relationship with Russia. But the president had a carefree look of someone about to leave for vacation.

Snowden?s father responds to Obama?s claim his son is not a patriot

When did he go to any members of either the House or Senate intelligence committees? I don't hear that he did that. If he had, he might have gotten more done than doing what he did - aiding the Russians and Chinese who have been hacking us and denying it. August 11, 2013 11:30 pm at 11:30 pm | Matt Snowden is a patriot in the strictest sense for his act of letting us know what uncle sam is up to. Stand up and tell uncle same to stow it. August 12, 2013 12:28 am at 12:28 am | Nancy Snowden is a hero.

On Saturday GMA, Obama's 'Personality' at Press Conference Admired While Substance Ignored

More from PostPolitics Aaron Blake The push by the Obama administration gives Paul a chance to burnish his bipartisan -- and leadership -- credentials. Aaron Blake The rodeo announcer asked people if they want to see the president "run down by a bull." Chris Cillizza and Sean Sullivan Why the vice president can go places the former Secretary of State can't. His first putt was a miss, which Obama reacted to by leaning back and kicking his knee up, as if trying to coax the ball into breaking right, according to the pool report from the journalists who watched him play the first hole. He let out a little, Ooooh, as it happened. Next one missed, too. Last one he just dragged in the hole, the report added. It is the fourth time Obama has vacationed on the upscale island, although he skipped a trip here last year during the presidential campaign.
