To VDB's point, here's the GOP junior Senator from CO expressing a similar sentiment (albeit in a far less hilarious way)

This reported action directly contradicts what Attorney General Sessions told me prior to his confirmation. With no prior notice to Congress, the Justice Department has trampled on the will of the voters in CO and other states

I am prepared to take all steps necessary, including holding DOJ nominees, until the Attorney General lives up to the commitment he made to me prior to his confirmation.

Instead of asking Jeff nicely to look the other way on federal law and then acting shocked – SHOCKED – when he doesn't, how about just pass some different laws? These people do realize they are legislators, right?

It's been so long since they actually legislated instead of the grandstanding circle jerk they've been engaging in for the past decade I'm not sure they remember that.

Exactly, they don’t remember how to legislate

Continuing our tradition of sensible liberalization of the law, the Vermont state Senate today approved a bill legalizing possession of up to an ounce of cannabis, as well as up to two mature and four immature plants. No commercial market has been created; apparently the legislature favors a home-grow economy. Our mostly useless Rpublican gov has indicated he'll sign the bill into law.

well, it's not quite what the new governor was promising, but it's a good step - NJ has widely expanded the medical program in the past week, allowing more chronic pain users and those suffering from anxiety and migraines.  they also got rid of the ridiculous doctor registry requirements. 

very soon, i imagine this will be me:

I just watched that this morning and got a kick out of it. 

That Jordan Peterson guy, though.  Christ.  Some of his arguments were creeping dangerously close to the kind of anti-intellectualism you see in right wing circles.
