DEA Official Announces Successful Drug Bust On Son's Room

Go to the Onion site to watch the video. The flash implementation by The Onion has been freezing up certain browsers, so I’ve taken it off this post.

    This would be funnier if it wasnt so far from the truth.
    Its nice to see even the onion is getting in on the action. Says alot about where we are in the fight.

    I need to restate my last comment:

    This isnt so far from the true, funny none the less.

    Hilarious, Cannabis is as normal as Victoria’s Secret and forbidden concerts, but only pot gets a federal law enforcement agency to protect teenagers from it.

  • Sherman Hoyle

    Wow a couple joints a glass bowl and a lighter! What a haul the streets are safer already. Ohh look another drug commercial just came on the boobie tube. Drugs are bad, mmmmkay.

    Have you all watched the three videos at cannabisculture.com with Barry and Candi Cooper? This is the first I’ve seen them. I’ve read recent information on the LEO corruption and actions against the Coopers however, it was good to see the videos. Think you might enjoy them.

    Cops & CPS Seize Child From Parents For Mistrusting Government
    By Paul Joseph Watson, Prison Planet – Wednesday, April 7 2010

    Barry and Candi Cooper appear on The Alex Jones Show to discuss the loss of their 7-year-old son due to their kop-busting activism.

    People in Texas are takin’ on the ‘good ole’ boys’. I got a taste of the good ole boy mentality when I lived in a certain small town in a certain ass backwards state in the middle of North America for 10 years.

    Backwards? You mean just because you can buy a box of cereal, milk and sugar on a Sunday but can’t buy the bowl to eat it out of, why would you call that “backwards?” LOL I had to put up with the same thing, for 11 years.

    Blue Laws are like Prohibition. Makes no sense whatsoever!

    Why did my browser freeze like it was hit by a trojan after watching this embedded video? I had to reboot just to close the damn thing.

  • I don’t know about you, but I’ll be sleeping better at night knowing this dangerous drug kingpin is behind bars. Thank goodness we have the DEA keeping our streets and our kids bedrooms safe.

    Ass backwards was mentioned because it was discussed in the video’s with Barry and Candi, how vengeful, controlling, and dishonest the police are in Williamson County Texas. The radio host even said something to the effect of “be careful for your life, they could kill you”.

    When I got busted in 1969 my mother let the police search my room. They found a bottle of Red Mountain wine and two reds rolled up inside a pair of socks. I had 200 some-odd dollars saved and they took that too.

    Sorry for laying the bummer on an Onion satire, but I figure the bugs get around so much online that we can never be entirely safe.

    Forgot to add it was really well-done dark satire. This stuff could fool either wing-nut on the political spectrum. I hope many more on the dumbed-down right learn something from the message.

    The War on Drugs is a completely absurd notion that contradicts the most fundamental ideals of the United States Constitution and turns every government official into a stinking rat in the otherwise not-so-bad American family tree.

    “Ass backwards was mentioned because it was discussed in the video’s with Barry and Candi, how vengeful, controlling, and dishonest the police are in Williamson County Texas. The radio host even said something to the effect of “be careful for your life, they could kill you”.”

    Denmark, I used to live in Williamson Co., Tx., and it is everything that it’s perported to be in the article if not more.

    I was stopped one night by the sheriff’s office and they harrased me for about 45 minutes, including accusing me of smoking weed (which I hadn’t) because my tongue had a greenish color to it (I had been eating apple flavored Jolly Ranchers.)

    Back about ten years ago, there was a 13 year old menatlly disabled kid who was harrased by deputies in Cedar Park. He had a small pen knife in his hand and the deputy shot him to death. He was never charged. One another occasion, the sheriff himself shot a 16 year old kid who was running away from what was supposedly an armed robbery. He shot the kid in the back, although he was armed…with a water pistol.

    And it is this type of behavior aussidawg that rips at my heart and should be taken note of by anyone with a conscious. This type of behavior has gone on for far too long, not only in Williamson County BUT across North America.
    Today I heard the word imbecile; A person with limited mental capacity who can perform tasks and think only like a young child, in medical circles meaning a person who lacks the capacity to develop beyond the mental age of a normal five to seven-year-old child OR A fool, an idiot.

    With the unbelievable horror stories of LEO’s actions, that happen on a daily basis, I’m now convinced that 98% of them are indeed imbeciles.

    While Barry may be full of piss and vinegar he and his wife have earned my respect and one can only hope that Texas puts an end to this good ole’ boy sheyit. And that Barry and Candi are kept safe against all odds while coming out of this mess smelling like a rose.

    ezrydn: Hope my words weren’t taken the wrong way by you. It’s difficult to accurately portray an opinion, for me anyway, nine times out of ten on blogs. Like I’ve said before, I do better talking in person.

  • aussidawg

    No Denmark, you expressed your opinion well and I didn’t take it out of context:)

    After living in this facist county, I really hope this family leaves, for their own safety…at least goes over the county line into Travis County. You wouldn’t believe what a difference a political boundary can make from one side of the line to the other.

    I had more run ins with the pigs in this county than I can count. I was at a convenience store one night trying to find a video to watch overnight. While in the store, a fucking cop came up to me, told me I was drunk, and arrested me. When he took me to jail, I asked for a breathalyser to prove I wasn’t intoxicated. He refused and I was *STILL* convicted of public intoxication.

    We have to rid this country of the ability of the religious few to dictate through law that the rest of us live up to *THEIR* moral standards. Apparrently, it’s okay to lie, cheat, steal, and kill so long as you don’t drink or use drugs. What pathetic hypocrites!
