PolitiChick Dr. Gina Loudon talks to some very colorful folks on the Venice Beach boardwalk about the upcoming elections.  Highlights include a man who’s voting for Roseanne Barr for President, some very happy marijuana activists and a guy who just wants “a cold beer”.  Dr. Gina asks them who they’re voting for and why–and some of their answers might surprise you.

  1. Proof that some people have no business voting……

  2. Tito Pineda says:

    …G you should be given the Congressional Medal of Honor after that…it reminded me of Jay Leno’s “Walk of Shame”; Cali is beautiful, but what the heck is up with the populace?…

    • Jan Conroy says:

      If you were conducting interviews in front of a bar or liquor store, wouldn’t you expect to be interviewing drinkers? Possibly even drunk drinkers? This woman is standing in front of a medical cannabis dispensary in a bohemian tourist area at the beach — who do you think she will be talking to? They don’t hand out medals for shooting fish in a barrel. And, for all of you-holier-than-thou types, Genesis 1:29. Look it up. Cannabis prohibition was a progressive era racist assault on minorities — first on “Hindoos,” then on Mexicans (hence the word marijuana), then blacks — by the political Left in California. Conservatives, especially constitutional and/or religious conservatives, should be opposing cannabis prohibition on First Amendment grounds — not siding with the Nanny-state Leftists.

  3. Lainie Sloane says:

    Dr. Gina, number one, you are really, really good at biting your tongue and secondly, welcome to “la la land.”

  4. Gary says:

    yes, I see that we have problems when they put legalization of dope ahead of our country’s problems.

    • Jan Conroy says:

      Nanny-state government IS one of our country’s BIGGEST problems, Gary, or haven’t you noticed? What business does the government have telling those adults they can’t use common herbal remedies for whatever ails them, anyway? Did this work with alcohol prohibition or did we become a nation of hypocrites and gangsters? Hmmm? The Feds are looking forward to telling everyone what they can and cannot put into their own bodies in the very near future and I’m not talking about “dope” either. They have their eyes on your dietary supplements, your salt and sugar. What kind if proteins will they allow you to buy in the not so far future? Beef, no. Tofu, yes. Or, maybe, a little Soylent Green? You witness government taking rights away from these adults and you forget the warning to the future from Martin Niemoller — “Then they came for the Jews and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew…” It is only a matter of time before the Nanny-state comes after something you care about if government isn’t put back in its place. The politichicks would have made Joseph Goebbels proud with this “work” — they didn’t speak up, they covered up (with propaganda). Now you know how Hitler’s Germany happened in an otherwise civilized country.

  5. these people have no idea what they are doing on this planet

  6. firefly31954 says:

    Um… people are… uh, interesting. Way to go, Dr. Gina!

  7. Karen O'Day says:

    Great job, Dr. Gina!! Those people are definitely world class scholars with vast knowledge of politics. ;-)
