President Obama recently doubled-down on his harassment of the 17 states who now make medical marijuana available to adults with medical need. The president seems to think he can rest on his progressive laurels — figuring no liberals will vote for Mitt Romney. That may be true; but a significant number of voters are either going to sit this election out or support the Libertarian party candidate – former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson. Most significantly, the groups that are most opposed to Obama’s drug war include those groups he most needs to motivate and mobilize again (e.g., young people, minorities, and those concerned with civil rights.)
Like many others, I was turned-off by the president’s flippant and condescending attitude he displayed during his recent Rolling Stone interview. He then grew even more sarcastic during the White House Correspondence Dinner and on his appearance on Jimmy Fallon (where he was trying to woo young voters.) The president we thought would be reasonable and fair, has become a “holier-than-thou” hypocrite who even admits to having smoked marijuana regularly while he was young. In fact, the Obama administration has greatly accelerated the drug war way past George Bush – ruining millions of people’s lives and wasting billions of public dollars. You will learn all about that here.
Now he is shifting the blame to congress which is a lazy cop-out. As you will read, Nancy Pelosi and other congressional leaders are urging him to get real and end this stupid war on weed. In this article, you will learn all about the special interest groups that are pulling the president’s strings on this important public policy and public health matter (e.g., lobbyists representing the pharmaceutical industry, alcohol companies, prison guards, police, and private prisons.) You will also learn about some positive initiatives – including how Anonymous is getting involved in this vital issue. Click below to learn the truth!!
Progressives are disappointed with a number of the policies and practices of the Obama administration. However, I and many others are most concerned about the fact that President Obama is backing off his earlier promises to end the unfair, wasteful, and ineffective war against medical marijuana patients. Given our severe budget crisis it is unethical and unwise to keep wasting scarce federal, state and local resources waging war against American citizens. We already imprison more of our own people than any other country – with the vast majority being non-violent “drug offenders.” Opinion polls show that most Americans oppose the war on medical marijuana.
President Obama has just called upon the political establishment in Arab countries to “Lead or get out of the way.” He needs to take his own advice with regards to Medical Marijuana which is legal in a growing number of states (at least until his administration got in the way!!) In this article I have collected the latest news about the growing protest against the Obama administration’s medical marijuana policies and practices. President Obama needs to recognize that this is a large and popular social movement that includes all demographic groups. Medical marijuana advocates and activists have spent over three decades to make the progress we have so far in a third of our states. As a true progressive and community organizer, Barack Obama needs to either get in step with our movement – or get out of the way. In fact, true conservatives and libertarians (like Ron Paul) have opposed the drug war for decades. Click Below for more about the Obama administration’s failures, fumbles, and fallacies in the losing war on weed!!
One of the first things FDR did when he became president in 1932 was to end the failed prohibition of alcohol. This single act freed up resources for needed public works programs and added lots of new tax revenue. That also dramatically improved public mood as promised by his 1932 campaign song “Happy Days are Here Again.” Another benefit was the dramatic drop in crime and fewer prisoners. We will see these and other major benefits once the wasteful weed war ends.
President Obama has the same chance to restore a sense of freedom and happiness in our country. One easy thing to do is end the unethical and ineffective war on medical marijuana. This will also improve how the rest of the world views the United States. Read all about what we all can do to persuade and pressure our new president to “Do the Right Thing” for millions of medical patients and recreational users across the country and around the world. The US is the only country standing in the way of global ganjah legalization.
John McCain does not have the temperment to become president. He is a vengeful vigilante and compulsive liar who has trouble controlling his temper. These and other severe personality disorders are due in large part to the five-plus years he spent as a POW in Viet Nam. The psychotic behaviors McCain exhibits are a result of the post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). We really cannot trust this crazy old codger who has lost touch with reality. For more see: Old McCain Should Buy a Farm – Not Become President.
In fact, many of these charges about McCain’s mental illness were originally raised by the Bush campaign back in 2000. At that time, Republicans clearly were worried about McCain’s PTSD and related emotional instability. Now, eight years later and the evidence is clear that McCain is even crazier and less stable. Our world will be in real trouble if this loose cannon and his redneck sidekick are elected. Time to send this discredited old cultural warrior back to Arizona to spend his golden years in a rocker like other diabled senior citizens.
Welcome to another installment of my call to arms for sane and caring people against Sarah Palin. In this collection you will read about how frightened Alaskans warn that she is “Racist, Sexist, Vindictive And Mean.” This is based in part on an open letter called About Sarah Palin by Anne Kilkenny. To start, check the first hand account of how upon learning that Obama had won over Clinton, Sarah loudly proclaimed “So Sambo beat the bitch!” Finally is an open letter to Clinton detailing What Hillary Should Say Now.
As I have argued before given his ancient age and torture-induced PTSD McCain Should Buy a Farm, Not Become President. Now with his tough talk about fighting everyone there is strong evidence that the Republicans are openly and proudly the party of rednecks. He will die very soon and we would be stuck with a bunch of ruthless rednecks from way up north (and way right!!) Also, I argued early on (May 25) that Rednecks had Run America for Too Long. This article also builds further support for the fact that The VP Candidate is a “F#*kin’ Redneck” like all her friends and family. Very scary information so pass this on to your friends!! For more positive information and inspiration check out my article about how WISE WOMEN WILL REBALANCE WOUNDED WORLD.

She kills animals for fun, kicks people’s butts, and raises redneck kids. UPDATE (10/23/08): Sarah said this week she is “Proud to be a Redneck Woman,” so there is no “Might be” about it (See Parker story at end.) The upcoming presidential election is truly now a full-scale culture war – as rednecks fight to hold back the rising tides of progressives, youth, ethnic minorities, and smart people in general. I wrote on May 25 about how Rednecks had Run America for Too Long. Now the McCain-Palin Redneck Express boldly attacks our rights. “Friends Don’t Let Friends Vote for Rednecks.”
VP candidate, Sarah Palin, loves to shoot guns and is proud of being able to field dress a moose (that means to chop it up when still warm after you shoot it.) She and Cheney should go hunting. Another story is how the young hockey puck (Levi Johnson) who has impregnated Bristol (the sex pistol) is a self-proclaimed “fuckin’ redneck.” Anyhow, read on for some hot-off-the-foreign press articles and funny pix. This is going to be the starkest choice in values and vision that the world has seen. Put the Alaska Hillbillies back in the freezer along with all their unwanted moose stew.

As a professional sociologist (and a man in his mid-fifties) I have many serious reservations about McCain’s ability to serve as our president. These go beyond the fact that his ideas and policies are wacked. First is that his age is catching up with him – like it is with all of us. However, the job is too important to entrust to a senile and hostile “senior citizen.” Second, as a result of his extensive torture – he suffers from long-term post-traumatic stress disorder. That has not been clearly addressed. Anyhow, enough of my opinions. I have collected the finest articles from the Internet that talk about McCain’s age as the DEFINING difference between him and Barack. Keep an eye out for some cool pix that I enhanced for your enjoyment. Continue reading
