Reflections on a Safer Choice

2009 Rebels with Just Cause Award

They were rebels with just cause, all those who can boast they laid down our laws. Real visionaries who defined what a patriot would be.
The Spirit of 1776!

Our heroes, who have given their lives for this country, died for freedom and for making this world a better place will have died in vain; if the American dream of self-government free of tyranny and big government oppression dies.

Many of today's leaders seem to have minds like concrete; thoroughly mixed up and permanently set. Blinded by the light of billions in tax and lobby money; bleeding leaders, thus corrupted, are blithely unconscious of the societal harm their policies cause. Jiminey Cricket, where is their conscience?

Marijuana or cannabis is one of the most benign chemicals know to man. Stop harassing people for making a safer choice. We need to focus on neglected and abused children of more risky, violent, aggressive behavior causing drugs, not the children of parents who made a safer choice.

The really risky drugs are the legal ones. Over a thousand people die each day due to tobacco use! Close to 300 a day die from prescribed pharmaceuticals. The tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceuticals gangs deal drugs causing more death annually than all illicit drugs We tolerate their salesmen!

The debate over medical marijuana or cannabis is really a scandalous controversy over whether this very safe, effective, easy-to-grow herb should be allowed to compete with expensive pharmaceuticals with side effects guaranteed to make life no longer worth living.

Cannabis kills cancerous cells and does not kill healthy cells unlike current medical practices for cancer treatment.. Alcohol causes roughly 1 in 30 cancer cases, according to the International Journal of Cancer. A Cancer Epidemiology journal report shows the least potent beer may increase the odds of developing tumors.

Alcohol contributes greatly to traffic fatalities,domestic violence and child abuse even in the womb. Our prisons are full of victims of fetal alcohol syndrome! Many victims of fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASDs) are not able to comprehend the consequences for their actions.

Throughout history, big government has caused more harm than good; often hiding tyranny under the guise of good intentions. Our founders knew big government would always mean a gang of evildoers.

We, the people, have little say in the running of this country. We have turned over the reins to a few cold-hearted, power-mad evildoers with little or no ethics, who in a careless bloodletting, feeding frenzy worship nothing more than the almighty dollar. The well being of the individual needs to count more than the corporate bottom line in America.

War creates a booming economy for some on the suffering of many. War is a recipe for disaster. The Iraq war and drug war are smokescreens for corruption but the people see the truth and smell the sleaze.

Our foreign policy is senseless. Instead of being a shining example of liberty to the world, we try to dictate democracy! We have abandoned our Constitution and the founder's ideal of nonintervention.

The US holds the dubious top honor on the world's prison population list again at 738 poor souls imprisoned per 100,000 people.

Scandals about big-bully police policies abound! Reminds you of alcohol prohibition; again official lawlessness rules us!

Prisons propagate violence, sexual abuse and crime. Placing nonviolent drug users in this "breeding ground" is policy bordering on insanity or reefer madness! The tobacco, alcohol and pharmaceutical gangs deal drugs that kill many more annually than all illicit drugs.
We tolerate their salesmen!

US Representative Barney Frank has filed a bipartisan federal bill to legalize "small amounts" of marijuana and make room for serious criminals. Representative Ron Paul is a cosponsor. This Texas straight talker says we are "politicizing pain." Visit Marijuana Policy Projects Legislation page to write your Congress person about "The Personal Use of Marijuana by Responsible Adults Act"- HR 5843.

Write your Congress person from Marijuana Policy Projects Legislation page about “Medical Marijuana Patient Protection Act”- HR 5842 which would allow the medical use of marijuana in states that have chosen to make its use for medical purposes legal with a doctor's recommendation. The debate over medical marijuana or cannabis is really a scandalous controversy over whether this very easy-to-grow herb should be allowed to compete with pharmaceuticals for pennies on the dollar.

Harassing the sick and dying over their medicinal use is the most un-American activity I can think of!

Big government plays on our fears to make us more accepting of their waste of our precious lives and resources. Flushing $50 billion per year down the drug war drain failed to staunch the flow of black market drugs and made out teens more aware and curious about them! (Continue)

 Poetry of the Spirit & Gallery

Michael Phelps is a true American Patriot taking a stand for freedom against tyranny and injustice! Michael won 22 Olympic career medals and 18 were gold medals, making him the the most decorated Olympian in history! Last I checked, Phelps has broken 39 world records (29 individual, 10 relay) in swimming!

Returning troops to front-line duty while they are taking medication such as lithium or Prozac makes me wonder if the method to our military's madness is to use this link between psychotropic drugs and violence.

Uncle Sam SUCKS American Blood & Liberty
Marijuana Saves Lives

A study published in The Lancet (UK), "A RATIONAL SCALE TO ASSESS THE HARM OF DRUGS," recommends science-based reclassification of drugs. "We believe that a system of classification like ours, based on the scoring of harms by experts, on the basis of scientific evidence, has much to commend it. "

I believe the Spirit of 76 is the Holy Spirit.

James Madison, the primary author of the Constitution of the United States, said this: "We have staked the whole future of all our political constitutions upon the capacity of each of ourselves to govern ourselves according to the moral principles of the Ten Commandments."

It was about the money, that's why we are called capitalists. Our Constitution is a plan to create the land of abundance in Bible prophecy. Butt, and this is a big one with spelling & every pun intended, it was about letting ethics rule. Not Big Bully (or Butt Hole) corporate ethics, BIBLE ETHICS. When will we declare our independence from big government's scandalous waste of our precious lives and resources?

Leaders responsible for current quagmire will one-day answer to a higher power for their crimes against humanity. It's time to end the terror by changing our intrusive, big-bully policies, both foreign and domestic. The monetary and environmental costs are staggering and the human suffering unconscionable.

Stop war, save the American dream! Restore justice in America; construct science based drug policies about saving and rehabilitating instead of ruining lives. Warriors can get their adrenaline rush increasing public safety; chasing murderers and violent sexual predators.

Neither the USA Swim team nor Kellogg's cereal and munchie company had a problem with Phelps despite an alcohol-related arrest in 2004. Michael has nothing to apologize for but Kellogs and the Swim Team should reconsider their decision to punish him for making a safer social and health choice to simply celebrate with friends.

Stop driving US to drink and use dangerous pharmaceuticals!
