Bush got into the White House, twice, via tampered-with elections. He tried to block a 9-11 Commission until survivors of those who died pressed legal action...the commission then blocked all inquiry into Saudi involvement and ignored completely the free fall collapse of Building 7 into its own footprint. Bush, Rice, Powell, Wolfowitz, Cheney, Rumsfeld and more lied us into attacking and occupying Iraq and Afghanistan in order to control their resources under the guise of "protecting America" and "bringing democracy" to those nations. They turned huge budget surpluses into record-breaking deficits. To date they've been exempt from prosecution for violating the U.S. Constitution, the Geneva Conventions, the UN charter to which the U.S. is a founding signator, not to mention simple human decency. They enjoy book deals, lush taxpayer-funded retirement and health care plans, and huge annual lifetime pensions.

But if I grow a cannabis plant in my garden, I risk time in prison.

Occupy your life.

  1. AMEN!!
    One of the most beneficial and maligned plant on the planet. Makes me sad to think of all the tax revenue, workforce that can be employed and exports that we, as a country, are missing out on. I was thinking that it would be pretty cool to grow hemp for the fiber too. LOL
    BTW you missed the massive privatized prison market that was created almost entirely due to the war on drugs and non-violent drug arrests.
    Sorry that ened up being longer than i wanted but you touched a subject close to my heart.
