Oregon 2014 General Election Open Thread

Oregonians and interested bystanders please bring your
information and opinions re: the Oregon 2014 general
election!

Please let us know about worthy Liberty candidates we
may be unaware of.

I'm voting from abroad and could use some input on local
(Deschutes County/Bend) races, have decided mostly how
I'm voting but still uncertain about a couple races and ballot measures.

Can't (for example) bring myself to vote for Merkley or Wehby (US Senate) so am
trying do decide between Green and Libertarian as an alternative.

Oregon rolls out legal-pot plan far different from Washington’s

Oregon voters will decide this fall whether to allow recreational marijuana use. The initiative calls for lower taxes and the ability to possess more pot than is allowed under Washington’s new law.

By Hal Bernton | Seattle Times staff reporter

PORTLAND — Matt Price sells 100 different kinds of edibles, tinctures, buds and other marijuana offerings to the patients who frequent Cannabliss, the medical dispensary he opened up in a historic brick building that once served as a fire station.

Unlike in Washington, Price’s medical-marijuana business is licensed by the state, and all the pot he sells is subject to mandatory testing and labeling.

The 28-year-old entrepreneur says he’s now ready for his next step — an expansion into recreational marijuana if Oregon voters pass a measure this fall that would legalize pot sales to anyone 21 years of age or older.

“We’ve had inspections,” Price said, referring to medical-marijuana dispensaries. “We’re already abiding by the laws. So being first up for recreational makes logical sense.”

The expansion of Oregon medical-marijuana marketers into recreational sales would mark a very different industry evolution than in Washington, where there is a sharp separation between heavily regulated pot shops open to all adults and a much bigger medical-marijuana trade with scant government oversight.

Be very careful about the "Ebola" Fear Vaccine Agenda ...Read this different view

I was doing some reading about EBola and stumbled upon a kink that took me to this gentleman's blog. I was intrigued with his writing about this Ebola situation. He brings up some incredible points...
from his writing....
.
"First of all, we have the highly dubious marketing aspect of the whole event, in order to achieve an explosive effect.
Media outlets, taking their cue from the CDC, are using the term, “1st US Ebola patient,” when that is obviously false."

Ending Marijuana Prohibition in Oregon - Measure 91!

I just RSVP'd to attend this lecture Wednesday, October 8th. You may know or recognize the name Rick Steves from Oregon Public Broadcasting, where his radio and television shows are shown often. I am not necessarily one for advocating the "legalization" of marijuana (as I'd rather it become decriminalized and free-of-taxation and regulation), but I feel the presentation might be beneficial.

The link below has been provided in case any other Oregonians are interested in RSVP'ing in order to reserve a spot of attendance.

Ghosts of War - preamble II

The ghosts of war are everywhere,
in the memories of grandfather-hood,
in the molecules of foreign silts and sands,
in her womb may come the military man.

The ghosts of war are everywhere,
in the erosion of river stone,
in the patterns they weave at Arlington,
and the heavy spaces above.

The ghosts of war are everywhere,
at the veteran's side,
on the veteran's shoulder,
enlisted by breath,
enlisted in death,
broke away with the tide.

And the dead child is quiet,
the Lord lesser resilient,
and the wolves of the dim form in darkness,
the devils depart

Richard Attenborough and me!

All I know of this man is two things:

1) This scene from Ghandi (directed by Attenborough) ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GG_4UaCD8E ... one of the most powerful scenes in history;

2) The grandfather and ingenuity behind Jurassic Park (my favorite movie ever (through the eyes of an 18 year old));

Rest in much peace and thank you for these memories.

Commander-In-Chief!

Commander-in-Chief:
- a head of state or officer in supreme command of a country's armed forces.

- an officer in charge of a major subdivision of a country's armed forces, or of its forces in a particular area.

Nowhere in formal definition does it imply or is there the implication that Commander-in-Chief coincides with competency-in-action, sensicality-in discernment or reason-in-administration and delegation.

Simple definitions remove liabilities and project them onto those who have granted the position so barren and elusive by definition.

Peace and Love always.

Rand Paul Vindicated

Liberals are gaga over Rand Paul's supposed gaff when at an Iowa luncheon his table mate is approached by a young Latina woman wanting to talk about DACA and after introductions Rand is motioned to by an aide, gets up, grabs his beer and leaves.

It's not World War III -

Let me just start by saying this will not be a long thread. In fact, I merely want to address two points and then I’ll let you all brew on the points so made. I cannot believe how many times I’ve heard talk of World War III. We seem to be listlessly drawn to a subject that would surely be an end to many things in our lives. Why do we focus so much on matters that only materialize into and manifest fear and distrust?

I haven't lived this life for stars and stripes!

I haven’t lived this life for stars. I haven’t lived it for stripes. The fact is I have lived in ignorance of how they have been molded in order that my subservience to them is legislated and conditional. I was always that kid who found the reciting of the pledge of allegiance quite strange; I was always that kid who felt discomfort in removing my ball cap and placing it over my heart before it being acceptable to sing, “The Star Spangled Banner”; I was always that kid who questioned the procedures and those who told me I had to do something in order to be respectful. Respect is earned, not to be expected due to the position one may hold, i.e. parent, judge, sheriff. You would certainly not expect someone to be respected for the foundational fact that they bore life, especially if that life was beaten in fits of vice and rage.

I do not understand the bloodshed we endure in order to raise flags on plots of land. I do not understand how bloodshed justifies celebration of and honor to them. I do not understand many things, but how we justify death in order to raise cloth over earth and pronounce it the station of humanitarianism is a very mysterious and irrational thing indeed. Who are these people? Who can ascertain peace with centuries of murder and pillage? Who can ascertain peace as restorative when murder is legislated and voted for by inconsistent and unworthy representatives of mankind?
