01) Legalizing Recreational Marijuana, Canada Begins a National Experiment

“MONTREAL — Canada on Wednesday became the first major world economy to legalize recreational marijuana, beginning a national experiment that will alter the country’s social, cultural and economic fabric, and present the nation with its biggest public policy challenge in decades.

Across the country, as government pot retailers opened from Newfoundland to British Columbia, jubilant Canadians waited for hours in line to buy the first state-approved joints. For many, it was a seminal moment, akin to the ending of Prohibition in the United States in the 1930s.

It was also an unlikely unifier, coming at a time when Canada has been buffeted by bruising trade talks with the United States and has seen its prime minister, Justin Trudeau, repeatedly ridiculed by President Trump. Canada is the second country in the world, after Uruguay, to legalize marijuana.

Under Canada’s new federal cannabis act, adults will be allowed to possess, carry and share with other adults up to 30 grams of dried cannabis, enough to roll roughly 60 regular-size joints. They will also be permitted a maximum of four homegrown marijuana plants per household in most provinces.”

02) Canada just legalized recreational pot. Here’s what you need to know

Once again…Canada proves itself to be somewhat better, than the Prison States of America.

…Cant have sex, here in the PSA…but wouldn’t it be nice to freely get a buzz, to take off the stress?…

…Nope!…That’s getting way too much fun and enjoyment out of life, for the social wardens!

…They want our lives to be as absolutely miserable, as they can possibly make them.

…I’m happy for Canada, and this monumental step, however…

We’ll continue fighting the puritanical, prudish, blood sucking, life extinguishing, killers of all good meaning in life, down here.

Businessman Trump Just Failed America…

01) Businessman Trump Just Failed America


“The federal deficit has hit its highest level in the last six years.

President Donald Trump likes to boast that he’s breaking records with the latest low unemployment figures. Here’s another record for his administration: The 2018 federal deficit hit the highest level of the last six years.

The deficit jumped 17 percent (or by $113 billion) to $779 billion at the end of Trump’s first fiscal year, according to final figures released Monday by the Treasury Department. That’s mostly due to the massive corporate tax cut that slashed rates from 35 percent to 21 percent, choking revenue for spending, which climbed 3 percent. Much of that was a hike in defense spending and money to pay interest on the climbing federal debt, CNN reported.

The U.S. government’s $523 billion in interest payments to service its debt in 2018 — the highest ever — was more than the entire economic output of Belgium this year, Bloomberg reported.

“Me Too” Has BACKFIRED, American Opinion is WORSE…

01) “Me Too” Has BACKFIRED, American Opinion is WORSE


Of course…being part of a demonized sexual orientation group…I’m biased, from living my life under these witch hunts and inhumane persecutions…

…I’m especially perceptive and resistant to it, whenever people start pointing fingers…looking for a place to lay blame…looking to inflict something extremely bad, upon others…

I naturally distrust [and dislike] the “me too” movement…because I recognize the witch hunting inherent in it…and I recognize the escalation it represents, in hostility towards human sexuality…

…I recognize it encourages false, or distorted, accounts of assault…

…I recognize that it encourages people to self identify as “victim”…even the people who may have only experienced a minor social irritation, or moment of awkward discomfort…possibly even one caused by personal misunderstanding…or a total misreading of the situation.

We are living in a world…where trivial things are being elevated to some sort of “personal trauma”…and that is not a good thing.

These sorts of manufactured “social epidemics”, have a horrible impact on so many of the rest of us…who aren’t doing even a single damn thing, which is sexually aggressive or inappropriate…

…I’m fed up with being collateral damage in this warped nonsense.

The sexual aggressors are the people pointing the fingers, from my vantage point…

…They always have been.

Trump Voters: I Regret My Vote…

01) Trump Voters: I Regret My Vote


“Former Trump voters REALLY regret their vote.

The divisiveness in this country right now, and the rhetoric coming from the president, is a daily exhausting thing,” said Sydney Cohan, another regretful Trump voter. She added that she fears “the wannabe dictator in the White House” will suspend future elections.

Stephanie Martin, a lifelong Republican and “part of the Religious right,” said she felt “embarrassed” and was considering changing parties. “The values coming from the White House just don’t mesh up with what I believe.”

I don’t regret my sentiment that “we’ll get through this”, after Trump won…I don’t regret the elation in Hillary’s defeat, either…

What we are currently going through…this is the awful “medicine”, which the people of this country need…

…It’s a result of the disease of political apathy…decades upon decades of it.

…Hillary would have likely placated enough people, to have kept it dragging on another four to eight years…

…But Trump and Pence?…Now, that’s going to cause some healthy unrest.

I figured this was going to get pretty ugly…and it has…less than a year in.

Don’t feel bad if you voted for Trump, as a protest vote…

…The U.S. public needs to be pissed off, over it’s political state of existence…not wooed into a euphoric diversion, over having the first female U.S. president…

…There are more pressing issues…Besides…Who’s to say we haven’t already had a “woman trapped in a mans body”, as one of our previous U.S. presidents?…Think about it!…

Hopefully…the presidential aspirations of Mike Pence are also going down the toilet, along with Trump…

It’s getting harder to believe, that Pence will get elected…but we still have to worry about a Trump death, impeachment, abdication…or whatever else could happen, to give Pence an automatic swearing in.

Not that that likely makes a whole lot of difference…

…I get the feeling, there’s a lot more of a Bush Cheney dynamic going on, than is obvious on the surface.
