Legalize it All: How to Win the War on Drugs

Legalize it All: How to Win the War on Drugs

“The Nixon campaign in 1968, and the Nixon White House after that, had two enemies: the antiwar left and black people. You understand what I’m saying? We knew we couldn’t make it illegal to be either against the war or black, but by getting the public to associate the hippies with marijuana and blacks with heroin, and then criminalizing both heavily, we could disrupt those communities. We could arrest their leaders, raid their homes, break up their meetings, and vilify them night after night on the evening news. Did we know we were lying about the drugs? Of course we did.”

You Can Help a Family Farmer Save His Farm, Here’s How

You Can Help a Family Farmer Save His Farm, Here’s How

We are very concerned what appears to be a glaring and very violent assault on small farmers, Black farmers, and the right to self-determination in this country, via the recent seizure of North Carolina Farmer Eddie Wise’s land. On Wednesday, January 20, 2016, around 7:30 a.m., at least fourteen (14) Federal Marshals in full military gear with full-scale military guns drawn, along with several county sheriff officers, descended on the 106 acre farm in Nash County, NC, and forcibly escorted Eddie Wise and his wife, who was still in bed and suffers from a debilitating medical condition, out of their home and off the land that they have owned for more than 20 years.

A Very Brief History of Taxation in America (What You Should Know)

Most Americans in 1913 paid no income tax. The average annual earnings of a middle-class family were approximately $800 and only people earning $3,000 or more annually were requested to voluntarily comply by filing a 1040 form to pay a one percent in taxes.

#Flydubaigate Spreads: Exhausted Emirates Airline Pilots Speak Up

Inadequate rest for pilots and constant flight time switching do not allow the pilots bodies time to rest adequately. This causes deep fatigue and affects judgement. Pilots are punished for declaring unfitness to fly, and many have quit. Too few pilots remain to safely fly. This problem is not limited to Dubai or Emirates but is an industry wide concern. Predictions of crashes by pilots have gone unheeded.

The Fed Chair Who Kept Yellen “Wolf!”

There is little ability left to continue to delude the American public about the state of the US economy. The numbers assessed at the FOMC meeting were, as usual, “revised” and the continued threat to raise interest rates was a ho hum exercise. The chips will fall where they may, and as a result we are starting to see a rise in the value of gold although this too may be carefully “managed” to prevent all out panic.

Legalizing “Weed” Has Done What 1 Trillion Dollars and a 40 Year War Couldn’t

legalizing marijuana in the USA has defeated the Mexican drug cartels more than the 40 year “war on drugs” and the 1 trillion dollars spent on it. Addictions are a health not a criminal problem and should be treated as such. Mexico benefits too as the 27,000 people a year killed in drug war violence will now live.
