Yeah, another “Watch”. There are a few issues that I study deeply and try to understand every nuance, especially when related to the Government’s stance towards personal rights issues. Sometimes I “watch” individuals, maybe half in jest, but to serve a point that they should know that at least one redneck is not fooled by their propaganda and lies.
There is another, more focused group that I “watch” and these I do take time to evaluate every aspect and issue. Cannabis/hemp re-legalization is one of them. If any half-way open minded person could shelf the government’s propaganda and lies (and now society’s complicit brainwashing… thankfully, now rationally changing to a more sensible understanding), then they would hear the facts and details about the history of this “weed” and be able to form their own, REAL opinion.
Almost anyone who has smoked it will tell you that it didn’t cause them the horrific issues the Lunatic Weed Fringe keeps suggesting. And any sick person who has used it will swear by its medicinal purpose (I can attest… it stopped my migraines, best I can tell).
The fact is that this wonder drug has been politically eradicated and it always revolves around Big Money. In some form or fashion (Big Oil vs alcohol and fuel, Big Meds vs natural remedies that cannot be trademarked, patented and made millions off of, Big Prison vs citizens who harm no one, not to mention Big Military’s two-faced attitude about it determined by whether or not we are in war or not), Big Money is what keeps this thing from helping people, while at the same time making people’s lives worse by imprisoning them for a harmless and actually beneficial substance.
Anyway, my first “watch” will feature a post at Designer High (now over to the right on my Drug War Blogroll) ———->
Its a post called “Nixon Quotes On Marijuana” which features some telling examples of complicity and lies in a bullshit “war”.
“The most notable statement that can be made about the vast majority of marihuana users – experimenters and intermittent users – is that they are essentially indistinguishable from their non-marihuana using peers by any fundamental criterion other than their marihuana use.”
“I want a Goddamn strong statement about marijuana. Can I get that out of this sonofabitching, uh, Domestic Council? I mean one on marijuana that just tears the ass out of them.”
“But, believe me, it is true, the thing about the drug, once people cross that line from the [unintelligible] straight society to the drug society, it’s a very great possibility they’re going to go further.”
“At least with liquor I don’t lose motivation.”
“I see another thing in the news summary this morning about it. That’s a funny thing, every one of the bastards that are out for legalizing marijuana is Jewish. What the Christ is the matter with the Jews, Bob, what is the matter with them? I suppose it’s because most of them are psychiatrists.”
“By God we are going to hit the marijuana thing, and I want to hit it right square in the puss, I want to find a way of putting more on that.”
“You see, homosexuality, dope, immorality in general. These are the enemies of strong societies. That’s why the Communists and the left-wingers are pushing the stuff, they’re trying to destroy us.”
“You have to face the fact that the whole problem is really the blacks. The key is to devise a system that recognizes this all while not appearing to.”
“Soft-headed psychiatrists who work in places like NIMH (National Institute for Mental Health) favor marijuana because they’re probably all on the stuff themselves.”
Here’s a similar article from a Designer High favorite: CairnsBlog.net
A PERVERT has twice broken into a Cairns adult shop and had sex with blow-up dolls before abandoning the vinyl vixens in a nearby lane.
However, police are on his tail, because the thief left his DNA on a doll and possible fingerprints on its face along with three other inflatable dolls and lubricants.
Business owners believe the same culprit is responsible for break-ins and till thefts at the Sapphire Bar on Lake St and three break-ins at the Laneway Adult Shop off Spence St in the past several days.
His method of entry is to smash through walls and squeeze through tight holes.
The owner of the adult shop, who wished to be named only as Vogue, said that in a first unreported break-in at his recently opened shop, the doll-snatcher had stolen five dolls and had sex with one of them.
“He has been taking the dolls out the back and blowing them up and using the dolls and leaving them in the alley,” he said.
What a nasty bastard (and I bet he didn’t even tell her “goodbye”, either)
And that’s my Offbeat Opinion on this Topix.
Chessington World of Adventures recently had to deal with a King Pong of a smelly situation I linked to and wrote about last week here. Apparently Brussels sprouts cause gorillas to fart horrendously noxious gas bombs that were driving away customers, so they decided stop feeding them during open hours.
Now, since I love sprouts so much, I find this repulsive on its face, so I immediately felt something needed to be done. Before I freaked the monkey shit out on them, I read this:
Zoo keepers will now give the usual diet of vegetables, fruits, nuts and leaves during opening hours but will add the sprouts in the evenings and let them trumpet to their hearts content.
Thank goodness. At least they are going to feed them sprouts after closing hours. (Did anyone else notice the reference to a trumpet in there? Are these farts obnoxiously LOUD, as well?)
I also noted that they are going to forgo the new rules and give these gorillas a special Christmas gift.
You see, miracles DO happen at Christmas time.
What would I do without my “News you cannot possible use“?
I say we start a “Bush Shoe” company and sell shoes in the US (I have seriously wanted to order a pair). Can you imagine the influx of capital into the system of those who want to buy.
Put the chimp on a dunk booth pedestal and our worries are over. Add acid, instead of water and we bail out the world:
Robert Tait in Istanbul
Monday 22 December 2008
Their deployment as a makeshift missile robbed President George Bush of his dignity and landed their owner in jail. But the world’s most notorious pair of shoes have yielded an unexpected bonanza for a Turkish shoemaker.
Ramazan Baydan, owner of the Istanbul-based Baydan Shoe Company, has been swamped with orders from across the world, after insisting that his company produced the black leather shoes which the Iraqi journalist Muntazar al-Zaidi threw at Bush during a press conference in Baghdad last Sunday.
Baydan has recruited an extra 100 staff to meet orders for 300,000 pairs of Model 271 – more than four times the shoe’s normal annual sale – following an outpouring of support for Zaidi’s act, which was intended as a protest, but led to his arrest by Iraqi security forces.
Orders have come mainly from the US and Britain, and from neighbouring Muslim countries, he said.
Around 120,000 pairs have been ordered from Iraq, while a US company has placed a request for 18,000. A British firm is understood to have offered to serve as European distributor for the shoes, which have been on the market since 1999 and sell at around £28 in Turkey. A sharp rise in orders has been recorded in Syria, Egypt and Iran, where the main shoemaker’s federation has offered to provide Zaidi and his family with a lifetime’s supply of shoes.
To meet the mood of the marketplace, Baydan is planning to rename the model “the Bush Shoe” or “Bye-Bye Bush”.
“We’ve been selling these shoes for years but, thanks to Bush, orders are flying in like crazy. We’ve even hired an agency to look at television advertising,” he said.
Zaidi has been in custody since the shoe-throwing incident, amid claims that he has been badly beaten. He faces a possible jail sentence for insulting a foreign leader, but has reportedly apologised and requested a pardon from Iraq’s prime minister, Nouri al-Maliki.
Manu, 31, from the southern city of Chennai, claims to have experimented with almost all varieties of snakes, including cobras, common kraits, sand boas and rat snakes but said his favourite was the cobra because of its ferocious agility.
Manu, a high school drop-out, said that as an eight-year-old he would amuse his classmates by inserting chalk and erasers into his nostrils and pulling them out through his mouth, before deciding to try the unusual alternative of live snakes.
He passes the snake through the passage which connects the back of the throat to the nasal cavity.
The married father-of-two said: “I got the idea to feed snakes through my nose while I was attending a yoga class aged 13.
“My guru made me believe that every person has the ability to do something unique. All my friends used to do different tricks and I also wanted to do something different.
“I first practised with a wire. I used to put wire into my nose and pull it through my mouth. I also used to pull threads and chalk. Then I switched to snakes. This is how I started.”
Admitting he has been bitten several times while attempting the bizarre trick, Manu claims to shrug off the pain.
“Sometimes it hurts, particularly if a big snake bites me, but I concentrate on being relaxed through yoga techniques.
“Doing this has brought me many fans and I love to entertain them.
“I want to tell the world that I am proud of India – I hope everyone sees my feats so that they are inspired to try something unique of their own.”

College days…? Old partying days with your best friends..? youthful abandament… ah, those were the days. Recall how much we all just had to mess with those who were really f’ed up? [of course we were well on our way too] lol… These pics should remind you of things you did to friends…or things they did to you. lol lol. Or, things you wished you had done. Someone actually tucked me in a small alcove, on top of a radiator once in St. Louis!… all I knew is the next day my knees were in my face and I couldn’t move!, oh yeah… and there was the time I ended up waking up in top of a tree. lol. Ok, I’ll stop now. BUT there are some of you reading this that I have seen in some pretty odd situations yourselves. lol
(Note from BuelahMan: Lynda sent this and I thought it would be a great post, so I added a few of my own drunk pics… and yes, I have been found in a few weird positions, but being tucked (or was it fuc@#d) in her small alcove?)
Linked by Alternet, I read this blog post at Socialogical Images about a Palin Look-alike contest at a Nevada Strip Club. Funny and the ladies aren’t too bad.
There will be those who consider this sexist or whatever, but I believe all is fair in love and politics. The fact is that this woman has made her entire career using this very same sexual exploitation and you women know it. So don’t go there to defend her.
Speaking for myself, I do not think the woman is all that attractive. She is pretty, yes, but being attractive means more to me. Being “attractive” means that people want to be around or close to you. I wouldn’t spend 2 minutes with this maniac, Palin. And even if she isn’t a maniac, she is a calculating scurge that is simply playing a role that was thrust upon her. Her entire career, from what I have read has been nothing but lies and using other’s power and influence to go places (like the Governor’s mansion).
I am not fooled by it. I am not fooled into thinking that her hunting makes her anything special. An ability to shoot animals from a helicopter doesn’t show me anything attractive, but causes me to want to run the other way.
Yet, there are men who want to spend time with her (for whatever reason). I don’t get it, because I have had the luxury (if we could call it that) of spending ‘time’ with some of the most beautiful women around (there was a time I was considered a “catch”, myself) and what I inevitably found out is that they use whatever beauty they have to cover up shortfalls in other areas (usually intellect or passion).
To this old man, attractiveness is so much more than a pretty body and face. It is the actual desire to want to spend other, less physical time with the person that means more to me.
Grudge-f*cking is no longer a worthy goal for this old man. But it appears McBush has no qualms with it. Must be that 24 hour Levitra.
Time to get with technology and give up the horse and carriage.
From the Democratic Underground, I present just a few of the entries of the PHOTOSHOP McTONGUE CHALLENGE!
Freaking LOL funny stuff.
And no, that isn’t my wife speaking of me.
TC dropped by and shared some kind words (very much to my appreciation). I went by TC’s site and found several things I liked (especially the blonde… believe me, you will know what I’m talking about and hide the kid’s eyes).
But there was one post that shared some extremely intersting photos of art in Serralves, Portugal. In this version I clipped what you really need to see (which are the pissers).
To see what I mean visit Amerika SUCKS, company of terrorists
