This is why we should legalize hemp and the real reason it is illegal.

I am going to plead the case to legalize hemp AND marijuana and explain the real reasons why this plant yes plant is not legal. I also want to make clear that what is categorized as hemp now days is not the same as marijuana although they are usually lumped together as the same thing I assure you they are not . You could smoke a garbage bag full of hemp and you would not get high!

I also need to state I do not smoke marijuana so my opinions as well as my facts are not bias, with that said take a seat and prepare to be shocked about the truth. I came to the conclusion that the only sense this made as to why this plant is illegal is that it didn't make any sense at all!

First I want to speak about medical marijuana and the good it actually does to various terminally ill and sick people around the world. Before some of you say wait a minute we have a synthetic form of marijuana called marinol let me point out some important facts.

If you look at the studies, marinol makes most people physically ill when they take it, even though it is supposed to give the same effect as marijuana. The fact is that it is not natural, it is synthetic, and it is not marijuana. Next time you get a prescription for anything get a list of the side effects of these legal prescription drugs you are taking and watch how quick you get a headache from reading the 3 pages of side effects this single pill could possibly give you. On the other hand in 99.9% of people that take medical marijuana guess what? They don't get physically sick, now why is that? Could it be because it is 100% natural? What do I know I am just some idiot that knows how to read and make an intellegent decision based on facts? Shame on me for educating myself!

I became educated on this subject years ago when my father was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer and he was taking marinol for pain and couldn't hold down his food even after taking this so called wonder drug marinol.

Ron Paulville: It's Already Here In Atlanta & It Works!

VIDEO: Freedom Watch on Fox Business News tells the story...

http://youtu.be/v4sCgRLFzmI
ReasonTV - VIDEO:
While cities across the country are cutting services, raising taxes and contemplating bankruptcy, something extraordinary is happening in a suburban community just north of Atlanta, Georgia.

Since incorporating in 2005, Sandy Springs has improved its services, invested tens of millions of dollars in infrastructure and kept taxes flat. And get this: Sandy Springs has no long-term liabilities.

This is the story of Sandy Springs, Georgia—the city that outsourced everything.

I was Stopped by a Sheriff Today

while driving my old pickup to haul household goods to storage for my son, who's moving overseas.

The first thing the sheriff said was to ask about my big plastic Ron Paul sign over the cab (you know, the big flashy magnet-mounted kind) and if I was still going to vote for Ron Paul. Thus began our 15 minute discussion about Ron Paul, The Constitution, Oath Keepers, Constitutional Sheriffs, and Sheriff Joe (of AZ).

After a while, I asked him what I did wrong. He said my right hand mirror was missing, did I lose it recently. I said, "No, it's been gone for decades." We talked more Ron Paul and then he said he had to go. I asked him if I should rearrange the load in my pickup for better visibility. He said, "No it's all right. But you might think about getting another mirror if you ever find one."

We shook hands and that was it. He was just curious about Ron Paul. Weird.

Military Rolls Tanks On To St. Louis Streets...But Why?

Via Zero Hedge:

I have to say that this event, which is being labeled a "training exercise", makes very little sense to me. U.S. Army troops all the way from Maryland running open exercises in armored personnel carriers on the busy streets of St. Louis? I know Maryland is a small state, but is there really not enough room at Ft. Detrick to accommodate a tank column and some troops? Are there not entire fake neighborhood and town complexes built with taxpayer dollars on military bases across the country meant to facilitate a realistic urban environment for troops to train in? And why travel hundreds of miles to Missouri? At the very least, this is a massive waste of funds.

On the other hand, such an action on the part of the Department of Defense makes perfect sense if the goal is to acclimate citizens to the idea of seeing tanks and armed military acting in a policing capacity. Just check out the two random idiots the local news affiliate picked to interview in St. Louis on the subject. Both state that they think the exercise is a "great idea", because having the military on the streets would help to "reduce crime":

For Those Who Wish To Throw A Final Hail Mary Pass In Tampa And Say "No Way!"

I would like to start a thread to forge some ideas about the best strategy to "convert" the so called Romnnney delegates, before they get to the convention. We may have a couple hundred committed delegates, but we'll have thousands more supporters that could help in a number of ways.

Here are some ideas that stood out to me:

CIA Wanted 'Torture' Cage for Secret Prison

A Polish official says that prosecutors have a construction order that proves the CIA wanted a cage for terror suspects built at a secret 'black site' prison inside Poland.

Senator Jozef Pinior claims Krakow prosecutors have a document that shows a local contractor was asked to build a cage at Stare Kiekuty, a Polish army based used as a CIA prison for al Qaeda terror suspects in 2002 and 2003.

"In a state with rights," Pinior told the Polish paper Gazeta Wyborcza, "people in prison are not kept in cages." He said a cage was "non-standard equipment" for a prison, but standard "if torture was used there."

Asked if he was sure the cage was for humans, he said, "What was it for? Exotic birds?" He said he has not seen the construction order, but that the Krakow prosecutor's office, which is investigating the prison, has a copy of it.

Anthony Terrell: Ron Paul 'Revolution' strikes at GOP state parties

What... Coverage for Paul Supporters on MSNBC.com ?
I couldn't believe my eyes so I had my wife confirm, but an article about the work of Ron Paul supporters was on the front page of MSNBC... entitled "Ron Paul 'Revolution' strikes at GOP state parties" Nice work, everyone!!!

June 21, 2012 | By NBC’s Anthony Terrell

Ron Paul’s third campaign for president may not lead to the Texas Congressman being nominated at the Republican Convention in Tampa this August -- notwithstanding a lawsuit filed by supporters in attempt to make that happen -- but, from Maine to Alaska, the “Paul Revolution” has swept state Republican parties.

Out of the national spotlight, Paul activists have mastered obscure local party rules to win key positions of power at state conventions, infiltrating the Republican establishment across the country, including in the key swing states of Iowa and Nevada.

Saudi Arabia: America's Worst Ally?

Glenn Greenwald writes:

For all the righteous talk about human rights oppression and violent assaults on democratic protesters in the Muslim world, any honest ranking would place Saudi Arabia near or at the top of that list. This week, the long-time head of the deeply repressive Saudi Interior Ministry, Crown Prince Nayef bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, died. Prince Nayef — in addition to having been one of the hardest-line religious conservatives opposed to internal reforms, having been accused by Sen. Chuck Schumer in 2003 of having a “well-documented history of suborning terrorist financing,” and having blamed “Zionists” for plotting the 9/11 attack — was one of America’s closest and most loyal allies in the region.
