Of Weed and War

Ryan Fredricks was resting comfortably in his Virginia home on January 17 of this year. He was a little concerned because of a burglary earlier in the week, but he had his .380 automatic pistol, so he could at least defend himself if the perpetrators returned.

At or about 8:00 PM, there was a crash of splintering wood, and his door exploded inwards. Thinking that the burglars had returned Ryan palmed his .380, and fired through the hole that had just been knocked in the lower part of his front door. Unfortunately it wasn't a burglar, it was a S.W.A.T team serving a "No Knock Search Warrant" which the burglary perpetrator had testified to against him.

The perjurer's statement was all it took to get a warrant, and the no knock abuse of Ryan's Fourth Amendment Rights slammed head on into his Second Amendment Rights. The results? Narcotics Detective Jarrod Shivers, 34, husband, and father of 3 children, age 2, 8, and 14 was shot dead at the bottom of the front steps of Ryan's home.

The results of the search? A misdemeanor amount of pot, and not the large growing operation that they were looking for.

Ryan's crime: Growing Japanese Maples, that for reasons good or bad were confused with marijuana plants.

A brave officer, father, and husband lies dead, and a 28-year-old father faces the death penalty for defending himself against what any rational person would consider an armed intrusion into his home. A militaristic invasion in the quest for something that didn't even exist!

One life ended, and at least five changed forever by a war that even it's most ardent supporters concede has no chance in hell of success! A war that ruins lives, causes untold pain to medicinal users, and takes what could be one of the most useful medicinal, and industrial plants out of use, and out of the hands of Americans everywhere! A plant so useful that if someone had told the founding fathers that it would ever be made illegal in this country, they would have called you a liar! A plant that provided the fibers, from which the very paper the Declaration of Independence, and The Constitution of The United States of America was written on, was made! A WAR AGAINST A FUCKING PLANT!!!!

A plant from which the sails, and rigging for "Old Ironsides" was made! A plant, from whose name the word "canvas" was coined! A plant without which no ship would have ever sailed in The United States Navy before the age of steam began! A plant that provided the very thread from which this great country was sewn! BANNED! ILLEGAL!!!

And for what? Because it was interfering with the dreams of DuPont, and Mellon, and Hearst! Because racist pricks were concerned that Nordic American women, might smoke it, and be tempted into sex with African American men! Lest "Ginger Colored Niggers might tempt the flower of white woman hood into the bed of depravity" (words actually spoken in the halls of Congress)!

Just today in my home state of North Carolina, Steve Marlowe was in court to have the charges against him dropped! Felony charges, based on evidence attained with a search warrant acquired on perjured testimony! Testimony that Superior Court Judge Marlene Hyatt stated showed "a reckless disregard for the law" to obtain a search warrant from it's use!

And what was Steve Marlowe's crime? What was the felonious deed that required that the Polk County Sheriff's Department employ perjury to obtain a search warrant to discover? He was growing medicinal marijuana for his wife Jean, who has a serious knee injury, and a liver condition that will only allow marijuana to be used as treatment! This happened in my own back yard!!! These charges were brought by a Sheriff who is facing RAPE CHARGES!!!

Here in Polk County North Carolina! Here in the very buckle of the Bible Belt! An accused rapist arrests a man for providing medicine for his wife!

THINK ABOUT THAT AND TELL ME WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY!!!!!!

Oh yeh Stoney,

It's gonna get worse too. We are so fucked.

Liked your tribute to Carlin. Picked up a load of wood at the local post processor. On the wall of the office was a sign asking if you could name the 7 words that can't be put on TV. Nothing else.

Interesting that he turned out to be one of our most virulent social commentators. I for one will sorely miss him.

I had not heard of the ginger Negros enticing the white wimmin with weed argument before, but if figures.

Nowadays, though, it's all about money. If pot were legal, the cost would go WAY DOWN. Since all those bazillion dollars from the drug trade in money-laundered through the stock market and is used to finance all sorts of shit, they'll never legalize it. Since when do they give a rat's ass about our health or the fact that we incarcerate more people than China or any other country? In fact, the sicker we are, the more money for Big Pharma and Big Medical. The more we privatize prisons, the more money goes into the pockets of the investment pigs.
Or, as Carlin would put it, our "owners," the cocksuckers.

Murph,

It always gets darkest before the dawn. Good news though! The Supreme Court shot down DC's handgun laws, and upheld the Second Amendment! At least we will be able to offer some modicum of self defense to the Nazis when they knock at the door!

Freeacre,

It6 is indeed a fact! You can look it up in the Congressional Record under "Marijuana Tax Stamp Act of 1937"

I noticed you used the correct spelling of the word "Negro", however it was not spelled that way in The Congressional Record!

I had to go through some soul searching before I put that word in print because I DO NOT use that word!

The word "Nigger" is the product of an uneducated person attempting to say the word "Negro" and failing. It is a word conceived of failure, born of ignorance, sustained by hate, and says more against the person wyo says it, than the person whom it is said against!

I am NOT ignorant! I am NOT a failure! I am NOT a hateful person! AND I DO NOT USE THAT WORD!! I only used it here because it was needed to show the racist manner in which this law was conceived, and written.

I WILL however peel back the covers, and let the light of truth shine down on these acts of racism when I see them, because I believe there is no place for them in our government!

I will drag them kicking and screaming into the light of day whenever I find them, so those who come here may know them for the evil which they are!

Stoney,
Here is the way I see it: When you get to be our age (I will turn 50 on August 16), we've all known - at the very least - at least one hendred people who have died from too much nicotine and another hundred who have died as the result of too much booze. Ask yourself the following question: How many people have you known in your lifetime who have died from too much grass? Not only have I ever known someone to die in such a matter, I'M NOT AWARE OF IT HAPPENING IN ALL OF RECORDED HUMAN HISTORY!!! What the hell is wrong with THAT picture?

All the best,
Tom Degan

Thanks for stopping by Tom,

The REAL reason is because hemp threatened the plans of Big Oil, and their pimp DuPont! If you look at all the fiber technology that has been spawned by petroleum based chemicals, you can see why a cheap, and natural source for this fiber had to be destroyed!

Hemp was crucified, so Nylon could poison the planet! Why? simple! Congress liked all that money in the hands of the DuPonts, and Rockefellers, than they did in the hands of the American Farmer!

DaFrog said...

Stoney I'm right with you on this one, again. I don't know what is worse, citizens getting their doors knocked down on bogus warrants, or honest law enforcement officers leaving behind widows and young children.

One thing is for sure, the stupid war on drugs has got to go. As a Libertarian I wonder what business is it of the government what substances we choose to ingest. Oh yeah, I forgot, now our penal system is a growing industry.

If they left the users alone and concentrated on the real criminals our prisons would not be so full of people who's lives have been ruined by this stupid policy. Instead it would be full of murderers, rapist, stock brokers and illegal aliens.

I believe that the reason they are so adamnant about control of the weed is because anyone can grow the stuff. Joe Sixpack can have it in his back yard and eliminate the middleman. As long as their is no profit in it for big business or the revenooers they will pursue anyone who grows, uses or buys it.

What a bunch of asshats.

Dafrog,

Oh the big business has LOTS to do with it! But I do see people waking up to the truth!

The Prison Industry, and the Military-Industrial Complex are the welfare state, of the Republican Party. They fall over themselves to keep the money paid a secret, and to try to bullshit us all into thinking that they're looking out for us, when the company that is feeding our soldiers substandard food, and poisonous water is paid ridiculous sums for the service! Not only that, but the former CEO of said company sits in the White House as the Vice President of The United States!

This Administration has sunk The Republican Party! They're right where the Whigs were before The Civil War! Hell! Obama is ahead in North Carolina! NORTH CAROLINA!!!!! The state that Ford carried in 1976! The state that elected Jesse Helms to The Senate five times!

I'll admit that the battle is going to be tough, but marijuana WILL be legalized before long! They can't keep it down forever!

Thanks for stopping by!

Good post, Stoney. Don't have anything to add--I agree with all the comments here--I just wanted to say "keep up the good work." If those of us prone to ranting keep ranting, we MIGHT just be loud enough to wake America the fuck up!

(This is not my rant journal.)

Cyber Hippie,

Thanks for stopping by! Yea it's pretty fucking lame, ain't it? I can't think of a bigger waste of time, money, and lives than the "War on Drugs"!

And fuck all the "We gotta keep the drugs out of our schools" bullshit!! The feds can't keep drugs out of their prisons! How the fuck will they keep them out of the schools?

Cyber_Hippie said...

They don't WANT to keep drugs out of their prisons. They want the money, and they want the "other people" dead.

It's fucking appalling.

Stoney my brother, wow, you post so seldom i in my years of wear and tear on an acid dripped brain fail to remember to check in from time to time,damn!
Anyway its a mighty fine post a as always you are right on target with the truth about the fucked up society that has been so graciously fostered upon us by the mother fucking christens and their multitude of aliases, these religions as far as i am concerned are the cornerstone of every evil ever perpetrated upon the human race. At this late in the game i have no such thing as a shred of remorse for the lame brain assholes that refuse to think for them selfs and wear their ignorance like a crown of gold. piss on um.
I mean it ain't like there is no opportunity for the mind to wake up,even for those of dense sloped forehead design. There are plenty of words on tv movies etc about people that will disobey the fucking rules that people just got to have to feel safe in their little fucked up lives..and don't forget the fucking cocksucking rules come straight out of the motherfucking bible from people that just got to suck jesus's little dick each sunday morning in their glorious sacred club house.
Sorry about this rant Stoney but the post really got me going about the marijuana thingie, i will visit more often my brother and freedom seeker for the down trodden.

MF,

Wish to fuck I knew! Blogger is doing one of it's wonderful once in a while mind fuck trips!

I can't even put a new post up on my own Blog! I think it's about run it's course!

It could be "Beerless Leader, and the Boys From Camp Fuckemall" skulking around in the shrubbery again! Don't those fucksticks have terrorists to chase, or some shit?

Thanks for stopping by, man!

Lore said...

All I have to say is, right on man. The Military Industrial Complex and prison system ARE the new welfare of the Republican Party.

I just don't see pot being legalized as long as Christians rule America. The religious are the most illogical breed of human, and so hard to change.

Keep posting dude! And check out my blog too if you get a chance!

Peace.
