    Duncan,

    You have to understand, it’s only THEIR truth that’s allowed, not just TRUTH, in and of itself. They’re still operating under the old “My Paper, My Ball” mentality.

    They did the same to me. I gave up after 4 attempts of posting studies.

    Why the censorship?

    Good work sir!

    Well I just popped in to tell you that my postsdid show up. They must have put them in a queue and held them for ‘approval’ because it was hours after I posted there when I posted here I had been censored.

    Goddammit Arnold WTF is wrong with you? At least people that have never gotten high have an excuse for being ignorant about cannabis. You’re a friggin lame duck too with no chance of holding any significant office in the future. C’mon Arnold, tell me how this guy can support cannabis remaining illegal:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pqep14L2f7k

    I swear that from time to time I think that aliens from outer space are in touch with the highest levels of our government and are extorting the lawmakers into keeping cannabis illegal. Yeah, I know how that sounds. But the truly perverted thing is that at least if it were outer space aliens forcing the issue that the actions of the top level know nothings are doing would make sense. Is that it Arnold? Outer space aliens in Sacramento? Is that how the know nothings hold the ludicrous idea that a fine of $100 will keep our entire society from collapsing? There are a significant number of people who are sober as the proverbial judge because they’re scared of a ticket? In California where going to a recommendation mill can even do away with that risk for a couple of hundred dollars? The know nothings sure seem to think so even though it really makes no sense to spend $250 every year to avoid a $100 fine that you have about a 3% chance of suffering. Yes, I know that people do spend the $250 but they don’t do it to avoid a legal penalty, they do it to be able to buy their cannabis in a relatively safe retail outlet that has a wide selection of cannabis and derivatives. Seriously, it makes me want to beat my head against a brick wall.

    Seriously, everyone here can dismiss out of hand the thought that Calvina Fay is an outer space alien in drag?

  • Duncan20903

    For your amusement the Doors perform an uncensored “Break on Through” in 2009 with Daryl Hall sitting in for Jim Morrison. Ray Manzerik singing backup including the lines ‘smoke some grass’,’talk some trash’,’LSD’ and everybody gets high.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aP0AIJ2C7t8

    Actually impressive for us die hard fans of the Doors. Daryl Hall does a superb job with lead vocals.

    • Matt

      I love that video. Also, on their live CD “Absolutely Live” It’s all the original members. When they break off into the slow part of “Break on Through” Ray sang almost the same thing “Smoke some grass, talk some trash, little piece of Al” I think it’s Al, I can’t figure it out though… I share your enthusiasm!

  • Hope

    “Seriously, everyone here can dismiss out of hand the thought that Calvina Fay is an outer space alien in drag?”

    Lol! And a seriously mean one at that!

  • ezrydn

    Arnold’s the arch-typical politician now. It’s not about what’s right. It’s all about getting control of someone else’s money, ala, their retirement pensions. Just how is Uncle Joe’s retirement money going to help California, other than being spent there by none other than Uncle Joe?

    And you notice, money that’s offered to him, he doesn’t want, even though it’s legally taxed tender. He cares not for you freedom but, instead, your money! No, Arnold, not this time!

    I’d like to take this woman out back, thrash her within inches of her life and then run her out of town on a rail. You bring the tar, I’ll bring the feathers.

    Calvina Fay eats one half of her Post Toasties every morning before she figures out,every morning,that someone pooped in them.

    Her twin sister by another mother and father posted this:

    I’ve never met a pessimist that didn’t insist that he was more accurately a realist.

    Hey, Duncan,

    The best kept secret of the reform movement: vaporization. LOL

  • denmark

    The prolonged wet Spring weather was a hinderance also in not getting the Washinton state initiative on the ballot.

    It’s going to happen in Washington state. The north eastern part will be the toughest to nail because of all the ass backwards wheat farmers who rely on the g’ment for money year after year after year. They also hide their head in the sand when it comes to change, unless it suits them.

  • Maria

    There’s always people that are resistant to change. I know I am in my personal life.

    People seek reassurance that the change won’t bring ‘bad things’. They need evidence that change can mean opportunity or that the changes won’t really impact them.

    Not directly and not in a way that will negatively upset their way of life. “Things will change!” “Yeah and?” Things changed when cell phones came around.
