Who Will Steer Us into Oblivion for the Next Few Years?
The debates have shown the majority of voters that 1. W's rushes to judgment are democratic or that 2. Big John's resolve will save the republic. I fear we will choose the greater of two evils. Bush offers his neocon brethren a few more years of world supremacy, which is all they need before Jesus returns for his children. Simply blow up the Temple Mount to light the fire that will be a beacon to God and shazam! Jesus shows up with an attitude like little W's. Sinners beware!
Big John has portrayed himself as a not-very different alternative. He too is unwilling to talk about the greatest evil in the land, the prohibition of drugs. However, to this reporter, he does seem unwilling to abandon our quasi-perpetual state of nationhood "for a few dollars more."
The response of both candidates to the drug war is silence; just like the Houston City Council, just like everyone in government. Superstition and ignorance were the original means of creating this drug war. But now greed has found a goldmine the "prospectors" are unwilling to abandon. This greed is currently disguised, as ignorance, so thick, so molded, ancient and deadly, that to now abandon their claim would mean the destruction of their word, their income and their very futures.
Incrementalism is their only option. A smaller mandatory minimum here, fining pot smokers instead of sending them to prison there. and of course more piss tests to fund the Drug Czar's affiliates and their urinary universities.
Who do you trust? I trust neither little W nor Big John, but I do trust W a lot less. He's proven, repeatedly and continuously that he will support his cronies at the expense of the American people, torture innocents in the name of "freedom", bomb women, children and wedding parties and then lie, deceive and pervert to cover his failures. So maybe Big John will get a second look.
At its heart, what has caused the decline in moral leadership and the abandonment of our democratic principles is the prohibition of drugs. There truly is no justice involved in the drug war; it is another form of slavery, the best these modern Jim Crow's could conceive. The center of this heart of deception holds a small, at one time insignificant lie around which all the other lies are able to exist: MARIJUANA IS EVIL! Around this thought were designed propaganda films, books and a million speeches to proclaim the use of this weed would lead our children to insanity, criminality and death!
The deception made use of the ignorance of the American people; it proclaimed there was a new threat, from south of the border, a menace named marijuana that with just one puff could destroy the lives of our children and the future of our nation.
Each year in the US, 100,000 people die from using prescription medicines where either the doctor or pill pusher 'effed up. Last year 17,000 people died from using Tylenol incorrectly. Last year approximately 1,600 people died from using cocaine, heroin and all other "illegal" drugs, ( the government chooses not to track this number. ) In the history of mankind, nobody has ever died from using cannabis.
The drug war is a huge toilet, supercharged and ready to flush another trillion of your tax dollars and millions of our kids lives down the sewer to government contractors and international cartels, to pharmaceutical houses and the Federal Reserve, to millions of leeches disguised as cops, DA's, judges and presidential candidates.
Ignorance is NOT bliss. As long as we continue to "buy" the lie about marijuana, we show we will buy just about anything.
The "I am YOUR Canary" article got a few folks attention last column. I heard from people in Europe, the US and Canada and not one of them thought I stepped over the line. I was born on this side of the line. I simply point out who has chosen to cross over to the side of the line that represents repression, illegality and unconstitutional framing of laws designed to subvert certain segments of our population for the benefit of the few.
For God's sake, do something to end the insanity of this drug war! Listen to the "Unvarnished Truth" about the drug war on KPFT Radio 90.1 FM in Houston and on the net at kpft.org Please visit DrugTruth.Net

"But the whole truth is much uglier. We have documented in detail how the Iran-contra drug-running and gun-running operations run out of Bush's own office played their role in increasing the heroin, crack, cocaine, and marijuana brought into this country. We have reviewed Bush's relations with his close supporters in the Wall Street LBO gang, much of whose liquidity is derived from narcotics payments which the banking system is eager to recycle and launder."
