Quotes for the day

bullet image Stupid Quote of the Day:

Dick Little in the Paradise Post must have thought Reefer Madness was a documentary.

How many will smoke pot and deteriorate into mindless morons who will have to be cared for in public hospitals and institutions for the rest of their lives, at a cost of millions of dollars to the rest of us? So much for all the tax revenue they claim will be generated. It will go towards the medical costs of taking care of those who will have health issues from overuse of the drug.

So, just where is that hospital where they keep all the brain-dead potheads on life support? I can’t seem to find the address.

Mindless morons, on the other hand, appear to be writing for the Paradise Post.

bullet image Smart Quote of the Day:

Ken at Popehat talks about Cayley Anthony’s useful idiots — you know, the ones who, due to their ignorant outrage and lack of understanding of how the criminal justice system is supposed to work, “become the useful idiots of the security state and the unwitting shills of the media.”

Imagine, for a moment, if all of that outrage could he harnessed and directed not against the acquittal of one accused defendant, but against the ruinous war on drugs or police misconduct or any number of other causes that don’t amount to being government’s fluffer.

Now that would be something.

    Man, all my pothead friends who hold down $100k+ jobs in finance and real estate will be dismayed to hear that they have deteriorated into mindless morons!

    I’ve often wondered what motivates men named Richard to call themselves Dick. It’s even more mystifying when the surname is Swett or Little. And even moreso when it involves Dick Sr and Dick Jr, who inevitably end up being referred to as Big Dick and Little Dick.

    I wonder if Jessie Outhouse noted in the story about the Missouri junkies has a brother named Richard?

    In the late 1990s, the Cleveland police authority (UK) were the subject of a corruption investigation, after allegations that drugs were being traded for confessions and that prisoners were being assaulted. The investigation lasting 5 years, and was fudged: “It is our decision that prosecutions are not possible at this time as there is insufficient evidence for a realistic prospect of conviction against any officer”.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ray_Mallon#Operation_Lancet

    This morning, after another long investigation, unrelated to the above, Sean Price, the chief constable (top cop) of Cleveland, and Derek Bonnard, his deputy, were arrested on suspicion of misconduct in a public office, corrupt practice and fraud by abuse of position.

    Too bad the Cleveland UK story won’t make the Yahoo news. Why can’t they just declare victory and quit?

    Oh my word, this one is just too precious. About a week ago the 84 year old Mayor of Oak Hill Florida, Mary Jane Lee Cook was found to have a bunch of merrywanna plants in her yard. She accused the police department of ‘planting’ the plants in her yard to make her look bad. Yesterday she had the entire police force fired.

    I tend to believe her, because they didn’t shoot her dogs dead when they came to investigate. OK I admit it, I don’t know that she owns any dogs. But neither did they shoot any of the other neighborhood dogs dead and I’m sure there were at least a few.

    Why the heck is this story only in a British media outlet?

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2021809/Marijuana-plant-Mayor-84-fires-entire-police-department.html

    Now that’s one feisty old woman.

    • malcolm kyle

      No worries Duncan; it’s gone viral stateside too!

      During the special meeting which she called, Cook presented a litany of complaints against the chief, who had been Oak Hill’s top cop for 17 months.

      Cook said they ranged from Young’s association with a known drug dealer to knowledge she allowed someone else to take certification tests for two officers on the force, and that she gave an officer who failed his drug test two months to clean up, during which time he was involved in a high-speed chase during which shots were fired.

      Cook noted that Young had admitted to cocaine use in her original job application in 2002. When the revelations came to light in media reports in 2009, Young said the “social cocaine use” occurred over a two-year period in the mid-1980s, and she hoped people judged her by what she had done for the city.

      On Monday night, Cook also pointed to several lawsuits against the city filed by former Oak Hill police officers and the public, including one by Young herself.

        And I’m not kidding:

        Oak Hill mayor’s marijuana gripe generates 181 stories nationwide

        From the Washington Post to the Sacramento (Calif.) Bee, and even a newspaper in England, news of the marijuana controversy that had 84-year-old Oak Hill Mayor Mary Lee Cook’s insisting that someone tried to frame her by putting pot plants on her property, spread like wildfire Wednesday. But that was two days after NSBNews.net broke the story.

        So what caused the national media frenzy? The Casey Anthony murder trial is old news. The NFL strike is over. President Obama and Congressional Republicans are still bogged down in the national deficit. …

        The mayor has been in a political feud with embattled Police Chief Diane Young for more than a year over alleged corruption and incompetence in the police department. Young was promoted to the top cop post on a 3-2 vote despite her admission to snorting cocaine more than a hundred times and smoking pot during the mid 1980s.

        Even the News-Journal failed to make that connection (besides spelling Commissioner Linda Hyatt’s name wrong).

    Dick would flip if he knew a “cannabis user” made it all the way through Ph.D and J.D. Mind dead? Riiiight. I love it when people prove the profs right. LOL Subject, you ask? Behavioral Science. And the Law Degree wasn’t to become another paid atty junkie. I put the two together and became a “Voir Dire” specialist. Hey, it beats being a misled writer. And I’m retired now. NEXT!

    Who are the Dick Littles of the world? And why do they bug us?

    Dick Little says marijuana smokers are lazy and inefficient, yet Dick Little demonstrates by way of his little or no knowledge of marijuana and drug wars that he is too pathetically lazy and inefficient to research his topic. He really needs to store his typewriter somewhere and buy a laptop. Discover the web, Dicky.

    Dick Little offers his readership compartmentalized propaganda bits he’s gleaned from eight decades worth of drug war dramatic script. He writes as if the old lies worked. Wrong again, Dicky.

    Dick may be an adolescent, a fraud, or an alien from outer space. We can’t really differentiate anything about him at this point.

    My money is on the possibility that Dick Little is a computer program, a digital conception hatched by some Breivik-type right winger in the sub-sub-basement of the DEA building. This evil DEA program generates a word cloud from hackneyed DEA talking points. Then the Dick virus pack is released in the form of what appears to be simple editorial by some small-town yokel in Cali.

    Dick Little—show yourself!

    …BTW, never trust a guy who calls himself Dick.

    • Windy

      Servetus, My hubby’s name is Dick and he is exceptionally trustworthy. He also says “It’s a hard name to live up to!” If Dick is what one’s parents called one, so one grew up with the name and it was the name one was called in school by teachers and fellow students, it makes a lot more sense to live with it than try to change it.

      As for Dick Little, dude needs to research his subjects before writing about them.

      • Servetus

        Sorry Windy, regarding your husband, I have no doubt he’s a great guy.

        The problem is that people seem to abuse the name; Dick Nixon, Dick Cheney, etc., and a few other Dicks I’ve encountered, they all seem to want to ruin the genre.

    • Peter

      Perhaps that “digital conception” from the DEA could be called “Dikileaks.”

  • Mike R

    Full Name: Little, Dick

    Enough said.

    This guys probably been ragged on enough now to qualify to be a police officer, so his aggression is understandable.
    Probably still mad at the pothead that stole his only girlfriend.

      Indeed. Just like no women would give it up to Harry J Anslinger, no matter how stoned he got her.

      “There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.” (except Harry J)

    Reefer Madness was released as a documentary for parents… The modern dung worriers think Cheech and Chong movies are instruction manuals for doing drugs. These are the people who run the world. It’s a wonder we haven’t crashed into Jupiter.

    Reefer Madness (originally released as Tell Your Children)

    Tell Your Children was financed by a church group and intended to be shown to parents as a morality tale attempting to teach them about the dangers of cannabis use. Soon after the film was shot, however, it was purchased by notorious exploitation filmmaker Dwain Esper, who inserted salacious shots and applied the more scandalous title of Reefer Madness, before distributing it on the exploitation circuit. Such education-exploitation films were common in the years following adoption of the stricter version of the Production Code in 1934. Other films included Esper’s own Marihuana (1936) and Elmer Clifton’s Assassin of Youth (1937), and the subject of cannabis was particularly popular in the hysteria surrounding Anslinger’s 1937 Marihuana Tax Act.

    Rush the Junkie Pig or ole Joe Blow Commie-phoebe crankin’ out that delusional hate. Escaping the normal ride a junkie takes in this drug war cannibalism. Junkies with money and power… while civil minded statesmen… follow? They’re fucking junkies for christ sakes! The modern Klan started on delusions from a guy with a high fever. Written down delusions. Like Rayguns Alzheimer Naps. Things are only bad because they say they are. They tell you what is bad so you don’t worry about what really is bad. Like civil minded statesmen following drug crazed egomaniacs. Paid by tax payers not sheltered in Calvina Gossip Corporations. Morphine was medicinally used to remedy alcoholics. The Opiate Laudanum was used by the Woman’s Temperance League in their afternoon Tea to soothe nerves and for the calming effects. Turkish Hashish Parlors at the World’s Fair to enhance the experience. Coca wine from the Pope.

    Everyone grew Hemp and Ganja. Datura, Peyote, Shrooms, Bullfrogs, Rattler’s in Appalachia, Cobra’s in Asia, Reindeer piss, Ayahuasca, Salvia, Ibogaine, Alchemy and Soma visions leading us to Moses and Jesus and then cashing in on Khristzionity. Civil normal everyday people lead by elected Civil Statesmen following Junkies and Power Mad Neoconjob Nincompoops. Then tell parents about the dangers of pot… It’s pretty clear sobriety leads to insanity and if one is forced to abstain it should be done in small measured doses. Over consumption has been known to be fatal and then you’re born again in the name of Geeeeezus. Now you have the same name everyone else has so it adds to the confusion. Fixing at the Alter with a shot of vino and a cookie. Go into the closet and confess, and be forgiven and then wash yo sins down the drain of salvation. Unless your confession is about the closet and is in a Law Court, then silence is Golden sayeth the Pope. Oh what a junkie he must be to rule over so many.

    Sen. Joseph McCarthy: Unrepentant Junkie
    Different researchers have found support for the proposition that McCarthy regularly used morphine, refused to quit and was eventually given an unlimited supply of the drug by the head of the federal government’s drug war. A good discussion of the evidence is presented in John C. McWilliams’ biography of Harry J. Anslinger, Commissioner of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics from 1930-1962.
