Dr. Timothy Leary: Powerful words about personal liberty; equates tax w/extortion

He sounds like Ron Paul in almost the entire video especially on foreign policy. "Turn on, tune in, and TAKE OVER" cool update on his more widely known quote - "turn on, tune in, and drop out."

You're math is skewy

The only vote that did not elect Obama was Romney.. all other votes and write-ins GIVE THE IMCUMBANT the edge.

Name calling actually prooves you are frustrated and can't think beyond your frustration.

Have you ever noticed how thoroughly discredited you are

around here?

"Skewy", I'm going to deposit that in my Granger Moronic Statement bank

dude, chill

I was there to. I was the red poodle with lightening eyes laying under the front porch in a bed of orange sunshine that never set

Is that you

That's really cool you met

That's really cool you met him, and really sad the way he ended up...He seemed like such a laid back, happy guy in his (not really so) younger days, basically before he was sick...He seems hostile and frustrated (you can't blame him in his condition) in the Nardwuar interview on youtube not long before he died..

Leary was in prison in 1973

and did not get out til 1976. He died at 75 on May 31, 1996.

Tim was NEVER laid back.

He was very attractive, had tons of sex appeal in his youth.. and he made a huge mistake dosing his students, and then he did his time, but it took some of his spunk.. he began wearing white suits.. stopped with the Guru stuff when Dick (Ram Dass) returned from India .. he fed off other's attraction for him, and why his AIDS made him into a monster.

Few years ago I found a mutual friend of friends on DP... that was cool.

Honestly.. it's like so many kind people come into this psychdelic world and you think that the peace and the love is there with these beautiful, happy, smiling people (Met the guys if REM back in 85) But really, we're all just people doing our best to get along, even when we don't.

Tim had a great collection of psychedelic art.. we tried to save it, put it into a museum, but he was not trusting anyone not even the guy who brought the first vile of LSD over to the states H-147 from Sandoz

Oh well.. we tried.

I guess I meant laid back

I guess I meant laid back when under duress in interviews. I didn't know the guy, nor do I claim to know his personal characteristics as I can only know his public persona, and as far as that goes he seemed likable and had the right idea on a lot of things.

you got it

He would have liked you.

Not sure what you mean, but

Not sure what you mean, but I'll take that as a compliment.


your attraction to him would have been recipocated by him, that's all I meant.
