    At least they're better than Snopes, which has become nothing more than an excuse maker for liberals.

    Voter registration records and social media posts expose Tom Feran, a columnist for the Cleveland Plain Dealer and PolitiFact Ohio, as a liberal Democrat. While PolitiFact Ohio presents itself as an above-the-fray judge of objective truth, Feran’s bias is hardly obscured in his work: PolitiFact Ohio editors Robert Higgs and Jane Kahoun are both registered Democrats according to Board of Elections records.

    One, there is no such thing as a "neocon" as we've always been conservative. Two, Conservatives love facts, such as the one about you having your head in the sand and willing to believe anything that's on Snopes without investigating it yourself. They do state facts for the most part, but their conclusions are ludicrous. In fact, they often state facts that are available in the mainstream media as being "questionable," but never about liberals, only about conservatives. They refuse to believe conservatives are not "out to get" all the power and prestige for themselves and install "big business" as the true ruler of the nation. They are a husband and wife team with no organization and no ability to truly investigate anything, yet they consistently support liberals in their contentions and refuse to confirm as factual nearly half of the rumors about conservatives.

    I can see a liberal slant to their conclusions. However, I do believe that alcoholic beverages are more dangerous than marijuana. The fact is one is legal and the other is not. Sadly, to compare them, one must assume that the person is only using one substance. In reality, those who abuse either are usually on more than one substance.

    Neither one is healthy. As Christians, we are commanded to obey the law, and the law says marijuana is illegal, so the study is really a moot point.
