Holder’s DOJ Setting Record Marijuana Busts…

Change You Can’t Believe In-

Eric Holder’s Department of Justice Setting Pot Bust Records  
   censored by facebook

FBI stats say 858,408 people were arrested for marijuana in 2009, under US Atty General Holder’s DOJ,  the 2nd highest total ever, and it was an increase of + 1.3% from under the Bush administration’s last year in office, 2008.  (the record was 872,721 in 2007)

per NORML, arrests for marijuana are more than one half of all drug arrests in the United States, up from 44% 10 years ago.

758,593 were charged with possession only , the remaining 99,815 were charged with sale or manufacture, which includes cultivation.  

Carbon Exempt Hyperdimensional Physics and Obama

After viewing Richard Hoagland’s hyperdimensional election of Obama I am even more disturbed than I was yesterday.  Richard makes a good case for a connection between the signs of the zodiac, real science, JFK and the hopey

changey election of Obama if you can buy any or all of that.

It is long and starts out sort of boring with Richard not saying much until he gets into those physical constants of accepted science.  Then it gets interesting.…

People Need To Buck Up

The biggest mistake I see many make when trying to sell the Democrats is to call the prospects stupid, and tell them buying the product is the only way they can stop being stupid, apparently thinking the prospects will immediately reach for their wallets and say “where do I sign”?

Of course, that result only happens in salespeople’s dreams – and is the reason 90 percent of people who go into sales never make any money at the job.

There is also a (real life) tried and true technique in sales and marketing that the democrats could try: the top sales producers in any industry constantly critique themselves and ask themselves “If I’m not getting the results I want to get, what am I doing to get the results I am getting?”

Instead of asking themselves what they are doing to produce the results they are getting (dropping support) – and they are producing those results whether they want to or not – Democrats and their supporters are taking the easy route of blaming the voters (their prospects) and treating the voters as if they are stupid.

Oct 21st Coming on Fast, But……

There’s a move to extend the deadline for another year!

What happens on the 21st of October, that’s the day that soldiers who served in OIF and OEF and were backdoor drafted, i.e. ‘Stop Lossed’, end their chances to get compensated up to $500 a month for each month extra they served as Active Duty Soldiers in especially either occupation theater instead of the ready reserve those who serve their initial tours and don’t re-up for another are still covered under, no service but can be called back by the military.

Word for the Week: Plangent

Plangent:  adjective; from the Latin plangere (to strike).

Having a loud, reverberating sound; having an expressive and esp. plaintive quality;

Plangently: adverb

mournful, resonant, sorrowful, rueful, dolorous, lugubrious, tearful, careworn, grief-stricken, plunged in grief:

As in:

Dear Vice President Biden,

Really sir!  Do you actually consider us whining out here.  You must really get out of DC more – outside of an occasional visit drumming up votes – we exhort you to do so.

We are sad.  The times, they are ahurtin.  We do not believe anyone in DC is aware of how we are suffering and confused and frankly angry.  And many of us are homeless and hungry.  And the wars!  Don’t get me started.

You might say we are plangently expressing our dismay – not really whining.  These plangent concerns are real.  They are not the concerns of a tired child as you and your cohorts imply.  

By the way, the bankers took my ball so that comment is illusory and perhaps delusive.

Very truly yours,


You may want to try your hand at the word.  Just put it in a political context.  Surely, there is much to be mournful about.  

Obama Gives Stern Lecture to … Democrats


I had to share this.

From the AP, Obama: Democratic voter apathy ‘inexcusable’:

WASHINGTON – Admonishing his own party, President Barack Obama says it would be “inexcusable” and “irresponsible” for unenthusiastic Democratic voters to sit out the midterm elections, warning that the consequences could be a squandered agenda for years.

“People need to shake off this lethargy. People need to buck up,” Obama told Rolling Stone in an interview to be published Friday. The president told Democrats that making change happen is hard and “if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren’t serious in the first place.”

Anyone who says Obama’s peeps don’t read Daily Kos?  Ahem.

Now I just know that this stern lecture will bring out the vote.

After all, it’s the fault of the voters.  We need to buck up!

I’d laugh, but I’m too apathetic and lethargic.  Sorry.

The Global Currency War

   Brazilian Finance Minister Guido Mantega spilled the beans on Monday when he committed the cardinal sin of telling the truth.

 “We’re in the midst of an international currency war,” Mr. Mantega said. “This threatens us because it takes away our competitiveness.”

  “The advanced countries are seeking to devalue their currencies,” he said, mentioning the United States, Europe and Japan in the context of what he portrayed as an intensifying trade competition.

 All over the world nations are in a race to the bottom with their currencies. The objective is to gain trade advantage over competitors. In other words this is a global trade war, one that is being done by destroying people’s savings.

  In all, about 2/3rd of the global economy is in the process of debasing their currencies. Nothing has happened like this since the 1930s.

 It’s a return to global beggar thy neighbor economic policy that proved so hopelessly flawed in the Great Depression.
