I don't know where to begin

With new reports showing a huge increase in crime relating to and around medical marijuana it was time for our lawmakers to step up to the plate and do something... like participate in the Oregon Medical Cannabis Awards 2008.

Both Representatives Peter Buckley and Ben Cannon will be in attendence according to the advertisement for the show.

And what a show it will be. When last years "winner" was described as "a very well-groomed bud with a pleasant aroma, not too rough on the lungs, and great taste and potency" and the addition this year of hemp-based wedding dresses, this is THE place to rub elbows with the upper crust of society.

And just in case you thought elected officials would be the only folks showing support for smoking narcotics fear not, taxpayer funded DHS will be there and has gone in the past (.mp3) to give talks on the "rules" about marijuana.

And of course last year "[a]ttorneys in attendance earned 4 CLE credits from the Oregon State Bar for their participation."

Way to go Oregon.

After we bailout the illegal alien houses, we will all need free dope from the government so we can get over it. It's their right to have a house in the US paid by US taxpayers.

I have created a website to discuss American's patriotism--what it is, how we express it, how we recognize it in others. The website will publish letters from citizens that explore these topics. The website is:

I am looking for patriotic Americans to send in letters so that we can start publishing them on October 15th. Letters can be stories, philosophy, reaction to current or historical events or trends, or artwork. We want letters from all ideological backgrounds--conservative, liberal, independant, or anything else. The goal is to talk about these issues without the media or politicians telling us what patriotism is or how we should feel about it.

Please send in letters to

I am in my 12th year of Lou Gherig's. The pain from stiff joints and pressure took me up to 3200mg of Ibuprofen before I started with Vicadin (aaah, sweet narcotics) and got up to 2000mg when I ran out. I was sick man, cramping and shaking like a detoxing junkie for a couple days. Sinc then (6 months) I've used them very sparingly and used marijuana for pain relief instead. It does help. Also helps me eat, which is another big issue.

Of course the program will be abused, but hopefully voters will remain supportive.
