What Little Controversy I Have In Me
Am I the only one that doesn't care at all about the fact that Michael Phelps smoked some weed? Seriously, it just doesn't even register on my importance scale. We have widespread homelessness and foreclosure issues, banks crashing, and job loss at rates that haven't been seen since the 1970's but OH NO - Michael Phelps got caught with a bong! Let's hang him from his legs and beat him with a cat of nine tails.
What? You think that's a little harsh? Yeah, me too. I for one think this country needs to get over itself, legalize the pot and start making some major money off an industry that could create jobs, raise tax revenues, and pump some much needed action into the economy.
This coming from a woman that's never even been drunk, much less smoked a joint. But I feel that way nonetheless. Please tell me I'm not alone...
