We work for the National Cannabis Industry Association, lobbying the federal government for cannabis legalization. Ask Us Anything!

Westlake Legal Group B_3xvlbhXjguKf7rhu4ww1bE-p5kd4FpxDqiTv6RrdI We work for the National Cannabis Industry Association, lobbying the federal government for cannabis legalization. Ask Us Anything! r/politics

Hello r/politics, it is lovely to be here! National Cannabis Industry Association represents nearly 2,000 member-businesses and tens-of-thousands of cannabis professionals in the United States and beyond. NCIA is leading the charge to protect legal cannabis businesses, defend our state laws, and advance sensible federal cannabis policy reforms. In 2019 this included successfully aiding in the historic passage of the SAFE Banking Act in the U.S. House of Representatives, the first piece of standalone cannabis legislation to receive a vote in Congress. The Act is now being moved in to the Senate and is being fought for by our team in D.C. and beyond. Businesses are joining NCIA every day to become stronger, smarter, and more prosperous by working together to defend and expand the responsible cannabis industry.

Michelle Rutter is NCIA’s Government Relations Manager. Prior to working for NCIA, Michelle was a research analyst at a government affairs firm in Washington, D.C., where she analyzed and tracked legislation on numerous issues. Michelle graduated from James Madison University in 2012, receiving her Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science with a minor in History. During her studies, she held a year-long internship with Virginia House of Delegates member Tony Wilt (R) where she communicated with constituents, businesses, and government officials, facilitating meaningful conversations.

Maddy Grant is is the Government Relations Manager for the National Cannabis Industry Association. Prior to working for NCIA, Madeline worked for two members of Congress on Capitol Hill, Congressman Scott Perry (R-PA) and Congressman Scott Tipton (R-CO). During her first year on Capitol Hill, she gathered cosponsors and support for the Charlotte’s Web Medical Access Act of 2015. Later she became a Scheduler/Executive Assistant, where she strategically allocated the Congressman’s time, while managing the day-to-day operations of the office in a fast-paced environment.

Michael Correia is NCIA’s Director of Government Relations. Prior to joining NCIA, Michael spent years working on Capitol Hill, including working for Rep. George Radanovich (R-CA) who retired in 2010, and the House Committee on Resources, serving three different Chairmen. Prior to that, Mike was director of federal affairs for the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and senior project manager for the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.

Michelle, Maddy, & Mike will be joining the thread on Wednesday, January 8, 2020 and look forward to an in-depth conversation about the future of cannabis, #vaping news and insights, cannabis trivia, and anything else you can think of! Ask Us Anything!

Bernie Sanders: We will create a government that represents the working class, not billionaires

This is ultimately the problem with liberal ideology (as opposed to Socialist, lest people think I’m a conservative). You’re too desperate to believe there is always a solution that works for everyone, where everyone comes out better, that can be described as a win-win. You convince yourselves that, when the rich act selfishly, they’re not just failing to be moral – they’re failing to be smart, and that if everyone just understood properly, they’d all realize their interests fall in the same place.

But that isn’t the case. Rich people know what they’re doing. They understand very well where their interests lie, and those interests are completely contrary to those of workers.

Because it ultimately isn’t about money or wealth – it’s about power, and the power money gives you over others isn’t measured in absolute terms – it’s about the disparity in wealth between you. When the rich make the poor poorer, they’re increasing their power over them. They have every reason to want to actively make the lives of workers worse.

Edit:

To expound further, a lot of Liberals are fond of accusing Leftists of being “just like Conservatives”. In a way, they’re right – just like Conservatives, Leftists understand how the world actually works.

We live in a world where might makes right, where the strong prey on the weak as a matter of course, and getting to the top requires stomping on the heads of the people below you. The difference is, Conservatives like it that way – or, at least, believe it’s impossible to change it – whereas Leftists want to tear it down and rebuild it.

We want to replace this horrible, awful world full of suffering that currently exists with one where everyone’s interests are in common, where people can come together and work for the good of all, and where cooperative institutions matter more than individual power.

Liberals have, somehow, convinced themselves we’re already living in the world Leftists want to build. But those “institutions” you have so much reverence for, the “rule of law” you respect so much – those are just fairy tales. Pleasant lies you tell yourselves to hide the true nature of the world you live in from yourselves. Power isn’t just the only thing that matters – it’s the only thing that’s real.

It’s time to stop living in a fantasy world, and time to start tearing down the real one.

Republicans preach fiscal conservatism, yet they always find money for war

Westlake Legal Group NYmmcrNJt4xJE5KZhGyy6SxWkUpmcqWwEHacLyyhhX8 Republicans preach fiscal conservatism, yet they always find money for war r/politics

Democrats often just don’t understand what Republicans mean by these things. They live by them, they’re just fundamentally incompatible with everything we think of as good in the world.

Family values means women obeying men, a lack of sexual liberation, and a tribalistic focus on relatives over non-relatives.

Law and order very openly means the harsh punishment of poverty crimes. Republican support for law and order isn’t because of some high respect for the concept of law, they generally prefer living in rural areas where they can do what they wish. It’s about wanting the type of people they don’t empathize with removed from society completely.

They certainly have religious values but again it’s about anti-feminism, anti-sexual liberation, an opposition to the LGBT, and a strong opposition to abortion.

It’s one of the reasons that it’s hard to imagine how we’ll bring the country back together down the line. Our base values are so fundamentally different.

There’s A Madman In The White House; Trump’s ‘Narcissistic Rage’ Led Him to Assassinate Suleimani

Westlake Legal Group AgZTZ2arwbcQmCUE6_lBnp2-aAHC6S7O03NPWWqC1wU There’s A Madman In The White House; Trump’s ‘Narcissistic Rage’ Led Him to Assassinate Suleimani r/politics

Their interest goes beyond owning the libs; that’s an added bonus and, respectfully, claiming that’s the depth of it serves only to mask their real end game: their absolute paramount interest is preserving their position and power. Thus “party over country.” Accomplishing this allows them to execute on their number two priority…

Lining their own pockets and that of their cronies.

Notice how everything Trump says circles back to money? Every policy speech (if you can call his ramblings “speeches”), every proclamation, every announcement, every childish taunt of his critics and U.S. rivals and “enemies” circles back to money. He has even called himself “Tariff man.”

Likewise, more and more, his sycophantic supporters are defending everything he does in terms of dollars.

Their priorities are in this exact order because priority one begets priority two.

Their gerrymandering, voter suppression, election fraud and court packing have all been exposed and yet they continue unabated because they have found the formula: it takes convincing only 30% of the population to seize control of a state or the country. It’s not how many, but where. Our elections have been thrown backwards 200 years where they are decided by land, not people.

These efforts have been successful to the point where they no longer feel they need to even bother pretending otherwise. Their brazen corruption is now on full display; they are absolutely shameless and will go to any length to preserve and add to their power and money.

And they are convinced there is nothing you can do about it.
