The 82-year-old actor was critical of Obama’s war in Afghanistan, saying he should have considered that Russia fought unsuccessfully there for 10 years.

yeah, obama really shouldn’t have taken the country to war.
smooth move, ex-lax.

i guess i should say smooth move fox-lax.


medical cannabis

yesterday i found out how easy it is.

as a walk-in patient, i was treated with dignity and expediency.
my diagnosis was professional and i felt comfortable during every step of the process.
a thorough orientation provided me with many new facts about medical marijuana in general, in addition to many details about the washington state law.
lucky to live in a state that values plants and allows people to grow plants.

Terrorism Threat Averted

It seems that with each new mass shooting there is an accompanying announcement that authorities don’t believe it is, “terrorism related.”  Is this supposed to reassure us?  Our media is telling us that we can blow off our worry and concern, because it isn’t terrorism.  Don’t worry about the bodies at the city morgue and the people clinging to life at the ICU, because this is just another day in America where some lunatic has gone on a shooting rampage.  Keep your plans to go to the gun show this weekend.  On the other hand, if it was terrorism, everyone would need to clench their sphincters tight, duct tape their windows and fill their bathtubs with water.  The word ‘terrorism’ is meant for special occasions when the country needs to be whipped into a frenzy to enter a new war.  So, regardless of how threatened or fearful you may feel about traveling to popular destinations, going to a movie or going to a nice cafe, you are not feeling terror.  That feeling is an irrational response that threatens fundamental rights of a well-regulated militia.  Cold dead fingers and all that.  The media will let you know when to feel terror and who to feel scared about.  Are we clear?

We must use this moment to articulate the choice that is before the government of the United States of America. Will it return to and reaffirm the values, the revolutionary values it was founded on, or will it lurch off the precipice dragging us all into a dangerous and oppressive world, in which journalists fall silent under the fear of prosecution and citizens must whisper in the dark?
