You can’t fix things from the top, from a position of power or “authority” because once you get there you notice everything is working just fine and it’s all of us that are broken.READ MORE »
Bottom line? Don’t waste your $10.
It’s cheaply made, doesn’t come with customer service or accessories that might actually make it be a vaporizer instead of the electric pipe that it is.
I have a Silver Surfer and I’m really happy with that device. It’s better than the Volcano because I like to take the tasty “top notes” off and leave the less tasty parts for the medibles.
It says right on the mCig package that
I looked for the glass chamber that I expected to see after reading that and I found nothing.
Then I thought, wtf? Why send this thing claiming it was a vaporizer and not include the glass chamber required to make it function as one?READ MORE »
I just want to say how much Doctors that don’t listen to their patients suck, and how much Community Health Care in the Quad Cities Illinois and Iowa just sucks in general. But Dr. Sanjay S. Pancholi of Rock Island, IL is nearly the worst doctor I’ve ever had. I have Cystic Fibrosis. It’s a [...]READ MORE »
I heard a voter the other day suggesting that radicals have fetishized consensus. That all of us being involved with decisions that matter won’t solve anything. But I’m just calling bullshit bullshit these days and I think america fetishizes voting.
I have a few thoughts for people like him.
“If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal” ~ Emma Goldman
“It’s not civil disobedience that’s the problem. It’s civil obedience that’s the problem.” ~ Howard Zinn
If voting change anything, then women voting for nearly the last hundred years would result in a living and equal wage for women as compared to men.
We can see how well that voting stuff works right?
That feature, that voting doesn’t really work was understood well by the Greeks and Romans. The appearance of a system that is somehow “fair” and or at least occasionally takes into account the needs of the little people down there. Usually in Greek democracy rioting was how the elite knew things were a “bit off”… sometime things got out of hand so much that heads rolled.
Ultimately, democracy and voting are military inventions to force the losers into lockstep with the winners.
This has mixed results.READ MORE »
I remember one day we executed a shopping cart. It was late, my friends and I were in the parking lot of a K-mart and there was a pizza place as a satellite store in the far corner of the parking lot. There were no people in the large middle of the lot and there [...]READ MORE »
So the other day someone posted something on FB about the crazy secessionists in the GOP. I want to talk about that.
Yes, they’re racist, woman hating, bigots, and probably rabid as well. But the idea that we could secede from the “Union” isn’t really as crazy as it might seem.
I think it’s typical of the several things (more on that in later posts) that liberals get way wrong. Take Greg Brannon for instance. Molly Redden wrote an article titled: Rand Paul-Backed GOP Senate Candidate Held Rally With Secessionist Group and this was published at motherjones.com. Supposedly a bastion of radical disobedience to the system. Yet secession is derided as the practical litmus test of political craziness. The problem is, this may be the best legal strategy available to us in the fight to stop corporations from having their way with our communities.
Recently the frackers got set back a bit in Pennsylvania where a group called the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund has been helping people write and pass anti fracking laws in counties across the state. The story behind that is best told by Thomas Linzey himself (video below) so I recommend you watch it. In short, the interstate commerce clause, Dylan’s rule and a few other particularly bad clauses, Monsanto is able to force your community into accepting their business model through the use of the state prosecutors office. Every local anti-fracking legislation passed at the county level in Pennsylvania had secession clauses.READ MORE »
Why the Fight to Legalize Marijuana Is Part of a Much Larger Populist Struggle – Ginsberg sensed that marijuana, a substance essentially banned by the US government since 1937, “was going to be an enormous political catalyst.” Though marijuana prohibition didn’t deter widespread use, the funny stuff did encourage doubts about officialdom in general. It wasn’t the chemical composition of cannabis that fostered skepticism toward authority—it was the contradiction between lived experience and the hoary propaganda of “reefer madness,” enshrined in draconian legislation mandating five years in prison for possession of a nickel bag of grass.READ MORE »
Cj Werleman Is Wrong About Atheism and Libertarianism Yet Unleashes Word Salad Rebuking Their Existence
wow, this article CJ wrote is a real piece of work!
I’m an atheist and an anarchist so… I tend to defend libertarians on anti-statism while still attacking them for their economic theories which I think are lacking.
I’m actually a biocentric anarchist and believe that property is theft so….
The state, neither democrats or republicans, are ever coming to save you from the system.
I do not like Ron Paul because again, I do not think the system is ever coming to save us from the system.
Please bear with me on this for a moment.
I think CJ gets it way wrong on both atheism and libertarianism and attacks both without actually presenting a single factual thing about either so I’m sure this is an exercise in futility on my part to attempt to debunk it. When we’re done, there will be nothing left because there isn’t a single true thing in CJ’s anti atheist / anti libertarian rant.
CJ’s idea that this is a democracy is way off the mark so I’m just going to start there. I’m leaving the attack of atheism for later.
Greek majoritarian democracy was a military invention to force the losers into accepting the decision of the majority rather than using consensus based democracy to ensure that the solution crafted fit everyone’s need and desires.READ MORE »
First, what is money?
A 10 Year Old Explains Where Money Comes From – Only humans would create a system where we give value to little pieces of paper that determines who lives and who dies. We don’t need to have a system which requires us to obtain this paper in order to have access to food, water, clothing, health, shelter and more; life on this planet should be free for everybody. Unfortunately we continue to see worth in something that is not even real. Our desires and goals have been programmed into us. We want materialistic things, but only because we have been made to want them. It’s time to let go of this system, get in touch with ourselves and find what we truly want, not what someone else tells us to want.READ MORE »
There is a saying; “when you’ve got a hammer, everything looks like a nail”. To a capitalist, everything looks like an abuse of capitalism. And all these extra people, these discards of capitalism must be curtailed. Totally something a rich guy would think. Cause you know, we’re living beyond our means of course.
So when the rich capitalist looks around, and sees the damage capitalism is doing to the environment he doesn’t say, oh, bad capitalism, he says oh, bad people, doing too much capitalism, and points out overpopulation as the real problem. Typical of what I call Big Daddy Politics, where we conflate the government as “daddy” and the nation as one big happy family. But eugenics is the end goal and fascism or authoritarianism in some form or another is the only way to limit everyones baby making capacities, and war of course to reduce population. We could never actually do anything differently sustainably, that never even occurs to the capitalist at all. That it isn’t overpopulation but unsustainable behavior and too much garbage both intellectually, and physically being produced by everyone will never occur to the business man.
And so we’ll focus on overpopulation because what better way to exert even more control over each and every individual than to start talking about legislating the number of children we can have. The oligarch’s view from the tops of their ivory towers are such that they view actual democracy, where we each participate in the decisions that effect us all as “mobocracy” and
This is really a call to more war and killing, and eugenics and fascism as the only possible solution as nature visibly collapses around us because of war and corporatism and too much killing.
And this is why the capitalist would rather talk about overpopulation than sustainable living.READ MORE »
