Plea to the masses

I don't need to tell people about the unequaled beauty of Maui. I need to bitch at them about not taking an active role in the operation of the country in which they live. Thus leaving the major decisions up to a group of people that are fucking ancient. We're talking about the reefer madness generation for fucks sake. If you don't voice your opinion to these people and vote with YOUR opinion, then they vote however THEY feel. We didn't vote them in to have opinions. They're public SERVANTS, we pay their wages with our taxes, and they still don't listen cuz no one says anything. We vote along party lines like fucking sheep, regardless of how fucked up said candidates views are. Speak up! Take control! If they don't play by the rules vote them out in the next possible election! Our grandparents just listen to the government and the news like Jesus is speaking to them directly or some shit. Is independent thought dead? Is there not one person that can formulate an opinion without having it fed to them by the most corrupt group of people to ever walk this earth? We're talking about a government that has consistently lied to the masses. Need examples?? Here's a few:
-There were never WMD's in Iraq
-The government tested thermonuclear weapons on unsuspecting masses during WW2 where they gave people dosimeters and put them in harms way to find out what the shit did
-Marijuana prohibition was just a way to deport Mexicans after we brought them here to help build the fucking country
-The CIA SOLD CRACK during the 80's, and numerous people died trying to prove it
-Torture was used on detainees recently after many denials from the government, a direct violation of the Geneva Convention (I swear I will kill the first person that says it was justified)

Consequently we end up with a totally submissive population that's primarily concerned with how much money is in their pockets rather than improving the quality of life within the country. We just turn a blind eye to the atrocities committed in the name of "freedom", a word that has totally lost the meaning it had in 1776. Now we stoop to a new low using the tactics of our "enemy": torture, subversion, and deceit. We gave up freedoms to feel more secure, and now we have neither. Ben Franklin once said "They that can give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." I think it's fitting to bring this up in recent times with the institution of the Patriot Act that allowed warrant-less wiretapping of civilians. It was passed because someone hid the Amber Alert laws within it. It should have been rejected and the author should've brought the Amber Alert bill back on it's own.

This quagmire of a war we're in currently was the best example of the government bullshitting the entire country. We did exactly what the "terrorists" wanted, started a war. We're TRILLIONS of dollars deeper in debt now, and we still haven't found the fucker. They got what they wanted. I bet this was Osama's line of thought: "We'll crash a couple planes into some shit in America, they'll start a war trying to find me, I'll just go back to Saudi Arabia where they'll hid me for a while, America will spend trillions trying to find me and it will cripple the country." I think it worked. Don't you?

Marijuana Legality

The current count of people in the US that use marijuana for personal reasons is sitting at around 14 million people. But of all the petitions I see going to the people that make the decisions, the highest count for signatures is 100. How the fuck does it work out that only 100 people can come out and sign a damn petition to legalize their intoxicant of choice? Anyone remember reading about alcohol prohibition... IT DIDN'T FUCKING WORK!!!! Know why? Cuz the drunks came out of the walls and threw a damn fit that's why. Is it the paranoia that seems to accompany smoking pot that causes this issue? I'm not really sure, unless 13,999,900 of the potheads in the US just started smoking and can't figure out how to handle their buzz yet, I doubt it. American stoners are the sorriest bunch on the planet. Can't even take the 5 min it takes out of their session time to sign a fucking petition so the cops won't kick their door in. I mean think about what's at stake here; long prison sentences, revocation of federal financial aid, etc. Is it so much to ask? We all sit around pissing and moaning about how it should be legal with joints in hand worrying about whether the cops are coming to bust down our door for a dime bag, but only a handful of us actually take some kind of action on the issue at hand. There's 14 million of us. With that kind of population we could sway every politician in the country out of fear of being voted out of office. 14 million votes guys, that's a HUGE margin! There's a NORML sponsored petition to the government floating around right now that only has 75 signatures. Wanna talk about a chance to make a difference, there is it. As you all know there aren't many topics that get me as riled up as marijuana prohibition, except for maybe phillipinos treating me like shit just cuz I'm white. Have you ever heard of a bunch of people getting together and passing a dutch, then starting a HUGE fight or killing someone? FUCK NO!! We sit around, watch some TV, eat a ton of food, and pass the fuck out. People get drunk and then rape, beat, and kill others. I say make weed legal, tax the hell out of it, just like tobacco. The tax revenue alone would probably bring us out of the hole we're in. I'm gonna include a link at the bottom of this entry for anyone that would like to sign this petition (if your have EVER smoked, I recommend you do). Does anyone realize the number of people in this country that are locked up for a simple possesion charge right now? It's in the vicinity of 60% of the prison population. We're paying for that, at a rate of $35k per person, with our taxes. To anyone that reads this and enjoys a toke from time to time, I say "GROW A SET!"

NORML's legalization petition on
Here's a link to NORML's site where you can really bitch up a storm.

Now please, sign the petition at Care2, and go on to the other site and put some pressure on the right people with letters, their site generates and e-mails them for you, all you have to do is enter your info. Then please, pass it on to everyone you know.

Part of what fired me up today was watching the documentary "Jesus Camp". I decided those people might calm down a bit with the application of good ganja. Scary fuckers they are. If you haven't seen it, you should. Bible-bangers to the extreme.
