Capitalism…Look at the Dinosaurs

June 7, 2013

I would just like to take this moment in time and point out that…Capitalism, that marketing system that SWEARS it is a free market system, is not really working anymore, and, even worse. If it isn’t reined in tighter to what is good for the society and culture, then a collapse will probably erupt from the center, and suck the entire system down the drain.

Which may actually work, because there’s nothing like complete and utter failure to point out when a replacement is needed.
You see, I’m not talking about buying a new car because the ashtrays are dirty. In fact, that’s part of the problem, now. The manufacturers know that they have to keep pushing car sales, PUSHING car sales ALL the time to keep an active turnover going.
But, unemployment has risen…where are the people to keep building the cars?

Well, some are using robots. A single robot works like clockwork, never late, never sick. If maintenance is called for, it’s quick and specific. Or “satlantic,” if you’re on the East Coast.
A robot can replace a thousand men, and can outlast them at overtime (which is minimal) and there are tens of thousands of robots some as big as the entire floor, some small as a pencil sharpener. No doubt that an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP) could and would shut a car manufacturer down for an indeterminable time.

Another interesting point is that one million dollars equals a single person making $50,000 a year for 20 years …
So if one person made an income of 33 million dollars, that would be a good income for 33 single people for twenty years. If that same person makes that same income again, the following year, then that would be an income of $50,000 for 33 more people, and now the one person has displaced 66 people from work.
That’s not the worse part.

So if Mobil/Exxon takes a moment away from destroying our oceans, rivers, and environment, to count their profits, they find they have $19 Billion… (for a quarter?) …and that would be 19,000 people working for a nice income for twenty years. Now, while we’re on oil industries, let’s look at what’s happening globally.

The world’s top oil producer sells half their oil and keeps half. That’s Russia. This might be news to you, so, probably sit down. The world’s second largest producer of oil is Saudi Arabia, and they sell almost ALL of their oil. Then, coming in for third place is the United States. And the USA doesn’t sell ANY oil. In fact, we’re in heavy credit problems because we buy so much oil from other producers. Yes…probably the US buys oil from Russia. Just rest your mind on that thought for a moment.
Just in case you’re wondering, China is fifth in the largest oil producers list, behind Iran. While it’s hard to see where all Iran sells their oil, as for China, they don’t sell any, but are also in stiff buying trade agreements to purchase oil.

So what we have here in this oxymoron of a situation, is some twenty countries sucking as much oil out of the Earth as fast as they can while it remains a viable fuel, and either selling it or buying it to friendly nations or enemies, and paying no heed to the fact that it is a finite product. It is also toxic to the human body, from its raw form (seen on countless animals plucked from the gulf) in its refined form, as well as the burning of it pouring carcinogens into the air. Speaking of pouring carcinogens into the air, the world burns about 82 million barrels a day.
When Kuwait was burning, the world turned into a hissyfit tizzy because 5 million barrels were burning into the air every day.

Day looked like Night…
And Night looked like Hell…

But today we burn 16 times that much. Everyday.
Why? For several reasons. You remember the car manufacturers? Do you think they make money pandering to a need for power/speed, dynamics of some sort? Or do they sell fuel efficient, lightweight vehicles that may not get a timing speed as elaborate as zero to 60 in 4.7 seconds. But they do get between 200-300 MPG.
But they aren’t in big production.
Lightweight bodies are hard to make without cannabis. Turns out that cannabis turns in a body that is more durable than steel or fiberglass, cheaper than carbon fibers, and, if crushed, is biodegradable.
Hemp also makes fuel, and is renewable. It might not replace the entire petroleum industry overnight, but then, the horse and buggy lasted well into the twentifirst century, too…although not as many people have seen them.

Of course, it takes man power to make these things. It isn’t something a “robot” can do, and that’s a positive point, too.

But what’s selling this drive for the future? What force is in play that wants to do more of what’s happening now? Who wants us to burn a HUNDRED million barrels a day? Two hundred million?

Well, Capitalism. THAT’S the driving force. Men are greedy. If they can get more for less they will, but, it isn’t always worth it, especially when considering the end product of a country or nation.
And the effect is interesting enough. Russia seems to have leaped onto the profit machine taking to Capitalism like a fish to water. Even China sold rare earths for profit…possibly to get their nuclear programs online to supply their country with electricity.
But how is it that three sworn enemies can sit around the campfire laughing at the world while they float a high and happy government above the heads of those who support that government?

As for “Free and open market, I beg to differ, as the US has put it’s misdirected sway against a thing that could give more people jobs and rejuvenate the country, as well as start a cohesion of political ideology. So against marijuana because of its benign effect upon man, it’s almost miracle cures against cancer and other maladies, its obvious marketing ability, and last but not least, that it is totally without overdose deaths marked against it such as tobacco, alcohol, fast cars, aspirins, even peanut butter…
In fact, it’s almost like these “intelligent” governments are choosing to let mankind kill itself.

Marijuana, Will This Generation be Remembered?

October 7, 2011

Funny how things are right in front of you for a while till you actually learn to use them, eh?
Take the Kimberly Mines, for example.
Before a mine, the area was a plantation, and just meeting bills, as farms usually do.
Then one day, someone noted that the children were dragging rocks around the yard, all tied to strings. Great fun (for a kid) and possibly the first “pet rocks” in existence.
Only when asked about their rocks, the children all had the same answer.
“The Sun shines through them so pretty,”
Children tossed them about as toys…
One, after bought and sold many times, became known as the Star of Africa, an 84 carat clear diamond…
So there were all these rocks on the shorelines of rivers and streams, and yet, nobody had paid a whit’s cent as to the real value.

Now comes marijuana.
At the onset of American culture, it was a medicinal plant bringing about laughter and a wonderful rejuvenation the morning following, a far sight better than the brain cell destroying alcohol with its terrible hangover the following day.
That it made people laugh was a good thing, but soon other treasures were found in this plant.
It could be harvested twice in a year, produced a plant that could easily made into ropes, strings, papers, and clothing. Later, Henry Ford would find that it could be prcessed into fiber composite bodies for his car, and that the material was far more durable than steel, as it gave way and returned to its shape better.
Lightweight, it also could be used to create fuels, and that the leaves left behind also rejuvenated the fields where it had grown.
Medicinal values came to be known for its ability to exact a hunger on people, so after chemo treatments, patients would more readily eat, and therefore endure the treatment itself.
(Funny thing about chemo treatment…it was first said to kill both the disease and the patient, and then the patient is nursed back to health)
Scientists found that the specific properties of cannabis, thc, was a cannabinoid oil that specifically killed the cancer cells without harming the patient…but the processed cannabinoids DID NOT get the patients “high”…

But for one man wanting to keep his job in the government, Harry J. Anslinger, word had gone out that marijuana was a gateway drug (it is NOT a gateway drug) leading to harder drugs such as heroin and other opiates. Oddly enough, even this account is false, as it turns out that marijuana can help addicted people break away from the drugs they are hooked on, and then, once cleaned, they could then put aside the marijuana easily.
And, not just hard drugs, but also alcohol, amphetamines, prescription drugs as ephedrine and methadone, as well as the most addictive drug known to man…the one that claimed many victims in its meteoric rise in populations around the world…the drug that kills near a half million people in the US every year and some five million people in the world…tobacco.
Marijuana can cure these addictions, and then the pot left behind easily, it can cure cancers (Breast, skin, lung and prostate) with no counter productive reactions, it can be used to make clothes, foods, milk, fuel, boots and shoes, houses, bicycles, and cars bodies. It can be used to make people happy after a hard day’s work without a hangover because basically it does not kill brain cells, and yet…

It is illegal.
And so the question…Will this generation be remembered? is also answered thusly…
YES, if it is legalized, because of what i just wrote.
and sadly, YES if it is NOT legalized, because if it isn’t legalized, we’ll be remembered as the dolts who thought that man will never fly, or break the sound barrier, or that a man would ever walk on the moon.

Personally, I hope my great grandchildren will remember this generation that stepped up and cured cancer.
THAT would be well worth the time it took to be alive.
But also, to let individuals finally choose for themselves what they want to do for entertainment in the privacy of their own homes.

Does Marijuana Cure Cancer?

September 26, 2011

According to a Harvard study released on April 17, 2007 shows that the active ingredient in marijuana, THC, cuts tumor growth in common lung cancer in half and significantly reduces the ability of the cancer to spread!
Researchers at Harvard tested the chemical THC in both lab and mouse studies.


What this tells us is that the US government is more concerned with curing cancer in mice and lab rats than it’s concerned with curing cancer in human beings.
Now, that’s just plain sad, if you ask me. In this day and age of legal lethal items available to the public, that a harmless plant and its properties are illegal even though it is probably the LEAST lethal thing available.
More kids choke and die from TOYS than people who have died of marijuana overdoses.

Comparisons are Unfair

August 17, 2011

For example…
about 490,000 people die of tobacco related deaths every year in the United States. Sometimes more, sometimes less, but, let’s go with this.
490,000 people a year = 40,833 per month.
that’s 1,361 every day.
and that’s 56 people every hour.

So basically, every hour
more people die of tobacco related deaths in the United States of America
than people who have died ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IN 5000 YEARS from marijuana!
Wait…is that right!?
More people die from tobacco related deaths in the USA
Than have died on the whole planet from marijuana in 5000 Years.
There’s why the DEA and others at the top don’t like comparisons.
Comparisons shine a very negative light on brute force tactics used on people who just want to laugh a little in the privacy of their own home and get rejuvenated for the work the next day. Without a hangover. Without an addiction.

Is This the United States of America?

Or have we been dropped into some dimensional oppressive government without the benefit of a vote or medical study, or even debate…
I really thought this was the land of the free, however, I may be wrong, eh?

Cognitive Intelligence of Marijuana Smokers

July 28, 2011

The long held standard of Kneanu Reeves and Alex Winter in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure being typical “stoners” is just another Hollywood film fantasy. Researchers followed nearly 2,000 young Australian adults for eight years and found that marijuana has little long-term effect on learning and memory— and any cognitive damage that does occur as a result of cannabis use is reversible.


The Price of Oppression

September 10, 2010

Abraham Lincoln:
Prohibition… goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man’s appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes… A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

So, how much does oppression cost, anyway? In the field of marijuana enforcement…
1970-1977=$76 Billion.
1980-1998 = $214.7 Billion
From Reagan through Clinton the costs rose from $9-$12 Billion to $15 Billion annually.
Further, the present costs range at around
$40-$42 Billion dollars a year
today to enforce and imprison people who just want to smoke the stuff.

That’s about $120 MILLION a day. To enforce the laws against marijuana. A plant proven time and again its benign nature as well as its potential medication.
And now there is a desperate need to
#1 save money state by state
#2 create more jobs
#3 continue research on a safe substance that could be used to promote better health non-surgically
But, is it safe? Three government agencies found it to be so.
1944, Mayor LaGuardia’s State medical personnel did a study on Marijuana and found it extremely less abusive to the body than any of an abundance of other easily obtainable products.

1967, Dr. Leo Hollister’s study at Palo Alto VA Hospital that marijuana did exactly what smokers had been telling them all along; a mild euphoric feeling, usually accompanied with laughter, an increased appetite, followed usually by sleeping.

1972, ex-President Nixon’s hand picked team of doctors, psychologists, and physiologists performed what has been called the most comprehensive study on marijuana ever before, Signet Publishers, Special: The Official Report on MARIHUANA and Drug Abuse, lead by Raymond P. Shafer of the Shafer Commission, and commissioned by ex-President Nixon, 1972

In any given year, there are some 2000 alcohol overdoses in the USA. Mostly kids.
But as far as deaths in particular?
TOBACCO …………………… About four million people die worldwide each year as a result of smoking. In the United States, tobacco use is responsible for nearly one in five deaths, killing more than 490,000 Americans each year.

Poor Diet and Physical Inactivity ….365,000
Alcohol ….85,000
Microbial Agents ….75,000
Toxic Agents ….55,000
Motor Vehicle Crashes ….26,347
Adverse Reactions to Prescription Drugs ….32,000
Suicide ….30,622
Incidents Involving Firearms ….29,000
Homicide ….20,308
Sexual Behaviors ….20,000
All Illicit Drug Use, Direct and Indirect ….17,000
Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs Such As Aspirin ….7,600
MARIJUANA? ……………………zero.
No overdoses, no poisonings…Nada.

In fact, some studies are showing that some people can break drug addictions by using marijuana, and, more importantly, studies have shown that it cures cancer cells in mice and labratory rats. It cures breast cancer, lung cancer, brain cancer, prostate cancer and skin cancer. The federal government is revoking further studies until they deem it necessary.
Sounds more like our government DOES favor curing cancer in mice and rats than us.
It also helps calm overt muscle spasms in MS and CP patients, help chemo patients regain an appetite, as well as produce a moderate calming effect on people.

Besides the National Cancer Institute, many other doctors and universities are coming together to realign the government with reality, as politicians seem to believe that they are here to lead us into their fantasy-scapes.
From [HERE] we can see the progress of medicinal marijuana…

And, it has other uses, too…
A car body has to be able to withstand incredible physical forces of torsion, pressure, and stress. And it turns out that hemp also makes excellent car bodies. Light weight, durable, and strong enough to cruise around with.

Thomas Jefferson:

The preference to be given will result from a comparison of them: Hemp employs in its rudest state more labor than tobacco, but being a material for manufactures of various sorts, becomes afterwards the means of support to numbers of people, hence it is to be preferred in a populous country.

World Updates on Marijuana

September 2, 2010

CATO Institute
A study done on a duo basis…legalizing and taxing, permitting each state to determine a tax base for it…not unlike alcohol.

TIME Magazine on Portugal’s decriminalizing efforts.

Driving while stoned? Not as big a problem, because evidently the person perceives the difference and compensates for it.

Pot joins the fight against Alzheimer’s, memory loss. Now, there’s something, eh? I knew I liked science for a reason. Data.

The London, Queen Mary’s School of Medicine and Dentistry has determined that the oils from cannabis do two things.
#1 Erase cancer cells, and…
#2 don’t get you high.
