Welcome Young Americans for Liberty

Welcome to all those who attended my presentation tonight sponsored by the Illinois State University chapter of Young Americans for Liberty. It was a huge crowd and quite attentive and interested. Quite a few political science students attending.

I suggested you come here and check out the Drug War Victims page. Definitely worth checking out their stories.

Also for further information about the legal grey areas presented by the horrific David Eckert case that I discussed tonight, see this post and the one by Radley Balko that’s referenced.

Feel free to join in the comments section. Introduce yourself, or ask questions. There’s a really good group here, they don’t bite, the refrigerator is stocked, and there’s still room on the couch.

    Hey Y’all, YAL…

    World’s first hemp car is creating some buzz!

    The trouble with the Fossil Fools, Monsatan and Koch is they get profits making us sick and then we all get to share the bad reputation America has from the rest of the planet. Polluting, making war or prohibition are all for profits tax payers pay for when there are much less costly and less harmful ways to live. This Hemp Car is another band aid when it should be common practice. What it does do as Ganja Supta did for RxGanja. It validates what we’ve been claiming since Nixon. Only now I can get these sweet morsals delivered to my door. God Bless America!

    Delivery to all of Cali!

    Thank you Pete for all you do.

  • thelbert

    for teaching the children well, thanks Pete

  • Very informative discussion tonight. I enjoyed it. Also very thought provoking. Thanks for all you do.

    The drug war maintenance crews are abandoning their posts, and the populace is picking up the sledge hammers. People have a lot of anger as it’s revealed that “The Law” IS the crime

    It is so neat that you have to read an article to make sure which state is having problems getting marijuana laws enacted or voted in.

    Also, after you read the “Drug War Victims” page, turn and re-read the Gettysburg Address with the Drug War as the reference piece. It still rings true.

    We don’t bite unless you ask really nicely.

    Or are especially wicked yourself.

    Welcome, welcome, one and all,
    For as kingdoms come and kingdoms fall,
    Let not your heart waiver nor your footsteps stall —

    Wayward folk are we,
    but soon enough you’ll see:

    Without a single flag we walk,
    but the mountains themselves
    will echo our talk

    Crap! I just dropped some hope/change behind the cushions trying to sit between Clay and Allan.

    We got some interesting anti GMO bills getting passed here in Hawaii. Here’s to hoping our Big isle mayor signs ours.

    If he doesn’t, we’ll override him like they did on Kauai!

    DWR is tied for favorite website with surfline (gotta have some light reading/pics/hot girls occasionally).

    Thanks for at least letting me sit on the armrest….

    http://www.9wsyr.com/news/local/story/House-Republican-busted-on-cocaine-charges-1/YWiY3sx6zEWggfoo7Vtk0g.cspx Why don’t the CATO institute lobby to eliminate pre-employment jar wars. Why is it a too expensive price to pay for liberty?

    Legal precedents involving student drug testing and even purse snatching gave rise to ‘justification’ for the NSA collections of email metadata, according to information released to the ACLU under a Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit:

    Sobriety checkpoints and mandatory drug testing of student athletes and railroad workers are among the legal precedents justifying the U.S. government’s now-defunct and court-approved secret email metadata dragnet surveillance program, according to documents the authorities released late Monday.

    The thousands of pages of records the President Barack Obama administration unveiled include the nation’s first opinion from a secret tribunal authorizing the government to obtain data from the “to,” “from,” “cc,” and “bcc” fields of all emails “to thwart terrorist attacks.”

    Is there anything the drug war cannot be used to justify?
