More drug-free antics

Schoolchildren sign police car at assembly

SHRINK-WRAPPED CAR

The final touch in the preparations for Drug Awareness Week was wrapping Clarke’s police car in red vinyl.

After students make the pledge, they go out to the car to sign it.

Heidi LeBrun from the Family School Association said this last addition got the kids excited.

“Did you hear the sound when (Clark) said, ‘Do you want to sign my car?'”

She said the students all gasped.

It’s bound to work. Years from now, someone’s going to offer Ethan some LSD and he’ll say “No, thank you. I signed a red vinyl shrink-wrapped police car.”

….

And in Vidor, Texas, elementary and special education students celebrated “We are Drug Free Deep in the Heart of Texas” week by seeing the principal’s horses Jake and Miss Lilly.

Not sure about the significance of the horses… maybe they were drug free?

Of course, it’s really about bribing kids to get excited about your message. “Sign this drug free pledge… Hey look! Free stuff! Hey look! A red vinyl shrink-wrapped police car! Hey look! Horsies!”

    “Of course, it’s really about bribing kids to get excited about your message. “Sign this drug free pledge… Hey look! Free stuff! Hey look! A red vinyl shrink-wrapped police car! Hey look! Horsies!””

    When Camel cigarettes started using a cartoon in their advertisements, Congress sputtered something about “protecting the children”. Apparently, using childish gimmicks or toys which may attract children to your cause is evil.

    I’m sure this is completely different.

    I wonder if they were handing out any of the “you raise ’em, we cage ’em” t-shirts?

  • kaptinemo

    Hey, look! Thoroughly bored kids, sitting in class with chins resting on palms, looking completely disgusted at these gross insults to their intelligences! See how enthused they are at this latest attempt at social engineering!

    As a ‘great philosopher’ once put it, “Stupid is as stupid does.” And this stuff is so effin’ stupid. Do they honestly think kids are rats in a Skinner box?

    • claygooding

      Yup,and they will continue to indoctrinate kids until the entire population has the creativity of a slug and the IQ of an ice cube.

      Then people will leave slime trails and make them easy to find if they leave their appointed area.

    Sorry Pete,,but horse biscuits are the best place to find shrooms every since our holy government put fungicide in cattle feed,,,since cattle have 4 stomachs their food has to go through,,I suppose no fungus in their digestive tract doesn’t hurt them,,but horses and most other mammals(us included)have only one stomach,,,fungus are a necessary in our systems to properly digest food.

    and these cool rainy fall days are the season to be jolly.

    As with many people I’ve met, these children might never have heard of drugs were it not for the valiant efforts of prohibition propagandists. Drugs are certainly something to be curious about, and interest in the marvelous nature of drugs has to start somewhere. Kid’s peers will eventually provide the truth about drugs. Kudos go to the prohibitionists for insuring they will have plenty of future drug users to victimize.

    Hopefully, as these children grow and learn to disrespect authority, defacing police cars with their signatures and snorting stolen horse tranquilizers will become part of the field guide for some truly serious and effective revolutionary tactics targeting the kinds of government vultures who would support something as dysfunctional and corrupt as drug enforcement.

    Vidor TX concerned with drugs? That is amazing. Seems they could focus on the fact that they are one of the last bastions of open prejudice. I stopped there to eat over a decade ago, I was surprised they actually served me. A co-worker insisted we drive through while traveling on business so he could show me the “sundown” signs.

    Seeing as we’re on the subject of saving the children from drugs and such there is a great chuckle over at the Toke.

    They do give horses pee tests at the racetrack you know.

    It gives new meaning to the old chestnut, “I’ve got to piss like a racehorse.”

        Four horses, four directions (north, south, east and west), four stout hempen ropes, two wrists, two ankles, John Walters and a starter pistol. What’s not to like?

        Doesn’t your pony poop ‘shrooms?

    In the 1930s there were only 100,000 merrywanna smokers, and most of them were Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, entertainers and misegenated white women. In 1940 the US Census says there were 132,122,446 people in America. 100,000/132,122,446 = 0.0757% of the population.

    IIRC in 2010 there were about 17,100,000 people in America who had enjoyed cannabis in the last 30 days according to the liars in the government. The US population had expanded by 176,623,092 to 308,745,538 or an increase of 133.68%.

    17,100,000/308,745,538 = 5.5385% of the population, or an increase of 17,000% (give or take a few percent) in the rate of Americans who enjoy cannabis.

    Now that’s what I call a heckuva job. Who can argue with failure of that magnitude? Not me, I’m trying to get my jaw off of the floor.

    Not only did the prohibitionists of the day hate drugs, but they also hated anyone who wasn’t Caucasian. A major part of the desire was to keep people of color from establishing a toehold in America and to make sure that the white women never got jungle fever.

    Today Caucasians barely cling to their populational majority by the slimmest of margins, perhaps only because so many people of various ethnic groups are unregistered guests and don’t count in the official totals. Caucasians do more drugs than those with other external characteristics, and not only do white women get misegenated by blacks but so do white men, and now it’s even legal! Why were the prohibitionists ever allowed to influence public policy? They can’t even get racism to work right for crying out loud! But all things being equal I’m glad the racists have been too stupid to figure it out and come over to our side of the table. Some people I prefer on the other side.

    17,000% and these assholes haven’t the native intelligence needed to be ashamed of perpetrating perhaps the most spectacular failure of public policy in the recorded history of man. Go figure that one out.

    The prohibitionist responds, “well if we hadn’t made those valiant efforts we’d all be stoned, lazy Mexican Negroes! How can you not see that?”
