Penny tiles. Americans finally understand that marijuana is less harmful than alcohol. A new Pew survey out today provides yet another illustration of the failure of America's drug war. By a nearly five-to-one margin, Americans agree that alcohol is worse for you than marijuana. However you slice the data up demographically, majorities say the same thing. The elderly, Republicans and Hispanics are the least likely to agree that booze is more harmful than weed, but even among these groups respondents said that alcohol was more harmful by more than a two-to-one margin. At the other end of the spectrum, blacks say alcohol is more harmful by an eight-to-one margin, while those under thirty agree by nearly seven-to-one. In fact, alcohol was the most dangerous of all the drugs studied, vastly more dangerous than other drugs in terms of harm to society, and behind only meth, crack and heroin when it came to harm to users.

It has edges we can fall from and faces staring in entirely different directions. And I thought the world was huge, but it is not. It’s in our hands. We can hold it, change it, turn it, shake it. We can solve it, but not by share, luck, or chance. We must be taught the way.Ananya Roy: Each year, I teach a large class on global poverty at the University of California Berkeley. One afternoon last year I listened to a group of my student’s discuses welfare and poverty in America.

I realize that afternoon that this post welfare generation was also expressing deep ambivalent about the role of government. This is why they fall in love with the ideas of William Easterly, especially, his line, “The rich have markets, the poor have bureaucrats.” And there are millions of other families who enjoy the same benefits.

Excerpt From Marine's Speech Proves Little Has Changed In 80 Years. I worked on the US drone program. The public should know what really goes on | Heather Linebaugh. Whenever I read comments by politicians defending the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Predator and Reaper program – aka drones – I wish I could ask them a few questions. I'd start with: "How many women and children have you seen incinerated by a Hellfire missile?

" And: "How many men have you seen crawl across a field, trying to make it to the nearest compound for help while bleeding out from severed legs? " Or even more pointedly: "How many soldiers have you seen die on the side of a road in Afghanistan because our ever-so-accurate UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles] were unable to detect an IED [improvised explosive device] that awaited their convoy? " Few of these politicians who so brazenly proclaim the benefits of drones have a real clue of what actually goes on. I, on the other hand, have seen these awful sights first hand.

I knew the names of some of the young soldiers I saw bleed to death on the side of a road. Fighting Masters. Fighting Masters (ファイティング マスターズ?)
