POLITICAL: We need DJT45 to remove AG Jeff Sessions for terminal stupidity

Saturday, January 13, 2018

Your letter was sent to: President Donald Trump (R)

The campaign used to send this message can be found here: https://downsizedc.org/ sessions-marijuana-policy/

# – # – # – # – #

Subject: 8 reasons you should reverse Jeff Sessions’ marijuana policy.

Reversing Jeff Sessions’ marijuana policy will benefit your administration in multiple ways.

Here are the 8 points…

#1: This will hurt you next election. The American people increasingly favor marijuana legalization.

#2: You’ve been achieving great things with de-regulation. This policy goes in the opposite direction. In fact…

#3: It will hurt economic growth. Even the stock market has embraced the marijuana industry. Don’t cause market uncertainty.

#4: This policy will also harm your promise to reduce crime. It will reinvigorate the black market and refill our prisons.

#5: There are too many laws to enforce. Government should focus and prioritize. Enforcing federal marijuana laws is a distraction.

#6: Republicans are supposed to favor federalism. States should made these decisions, per the Tenth Amendment. This policy harms that federalism.

#7: You promised during your campaign to respect the decisions made about marijuana in the states.

#8: Reversing an underling’s mistake will show the American people that you are both prudent and in charge.

Sincerely,
ferdinand reinke

End the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs” now. Focus resources on treatment; not punishment.

The Gooferment can’t keep drugs out of its prisons! How can they keep them out of a free society.

Portugal is a shining example of how to do it.

AND, by ending the “drug war”, what will all the illegal drug gangs do? Stop shooting everything in sight in turf wars. Pepsi and Coke driver don’t shoot it out for shelf space.

I trust that WalMart, Walgreens, RiteAid, CVS, and others will do a far better job delivering “clean” and “safe” drugs to those who want them while keeping treatment options front and center.

Prohibition ended because “We, The Sheeple” refuse to convict. The same should happen now.

Don’t let the politicians and bureaucrats keep killing addicts with a policy that is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient.

Send your thoughts to your representatives now!

Screwing Trump: NY May Scrap Its Income Tax for a Payroll Tax

*** begin quote ***

The state of New York may end its income tax and instead expand its payroll tax as a way to outmaneuver the new federal law that limits deductions for state and local taxes, according to WGRZ.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Wednesday during his State of the State address that he is exploring how to make the switch. California and New Jersey leaders have also discussed similar steps and other alternatives.

Good for retirees and pensioners?

I love when levels of Gooferment fight each other.

Hopefully “We, The Sheeple” will wake up and see how they are being robbed.

POLITICAL: Charles Barkley doesn’t understand the impact of Gooferment “help”

Charles Barkley Says Doug Jones Win Proves Democrats to ‘Get Off Their Asses and Help Black People
by WARNER TODD HUSTON13 Dec 201771

*** begin quote ***

NBA Hall of Famer and TNT analyst Charles Barkley, says that Tuesday’s Democrat victory in Alabama proves that if Democrats started doing more for Black Americans, they could win more elections.After Democrat Doug Jones won a shocking victory in deep red Alabama, Barkley, an Alabama native, said how thrilled he was with the victory.

“I’m so proud of my state. I love my state. We got some amazing people here. Yeah, we got a bunch of rednecks and a bunch of ignorant people, but we got some amazing people here and they rose up today,” Barkley said on CNN according to The Hill.

*** end quote ***

Make no mistake I like Charles Barkley even though I never met him. 


On TV over the years, he always came across as an honest fellow.


Unfortunately, here I think he’s made a bad mistake. The D’s, like the R’s, are only interested in —  remember the three “laws” of political motivation —  (1) rewarding your friends; (2) punishing your enemies; and (3) feathering your own nest. 


Ever election cycle, the D’s count on the “black vote” (their terminology; not mine). Just as the R’s count on their “base” to show up. Sprinkle in a few Greens and Libertarians to subtract from the appropriate totals and that the “election calculus”.


I’d prefer that Charles talk to Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams. who attribute most, if not all of, the problems that “blacks” have to Gooferment “help”.


Best thing that could happen is if the Gooferment left us all alone. Second best, if the Gooferment can’t stop meddling, would be repeal the minimum wage laws. They hurt everyone!


Argh!

POLITICAL: Thinking about the Moore election

Thursday, December 14, 2017

2017-Dec-14

FROM A PRIVATE MESSAGE EXCHANGE

FJohn: Doug Jones Defeats Roy Moore in U.S. Senate Race according to the AP

XXXXXXXXXXX: Yaaasss

Reinke FJohn: Be careful what you wish for. I think that he was “smeared”. And, it shifts the balance in the 2018 back to the R’s as it puts the “sexual harassment” issue back on the D’s. (Note I think both parties suck. Just that the D’s are slightly worse fiscally.)

XXXXXXXXXXX: Can’t argue. Just thought he was a “dolt”. 

Reinke FJohn:Not sure of that after all he was an Alabama State Supreme Court Chief Judge and at least one of the accuser admitted forged “evidence”. So, I just don’t know. He may be or not.

MY REPLY:

I’d say the media, politicians, and bureaucrats manipulated “We, The Sheeple” with fake news. Where were all the accusers before the final weeks of the election? And DNF gloria alderedge and the altered yearbook. You know I don’t like EITHER “Party” but this all sounds just too convenient to me. If he was innocent, then he has been irreparably slandered. Who knows what the truth is?

# – # – # – # – # 

The D’s, and their lapdog media, made “predator” Moore an issue. Of course, they threw some of their own under the bus to highlight the issue. Unfortunately, they are clearly transparent since they never criticize Bill Clinton. 

Argh!

“We, The Sheeple” are so easily manipulated.

POLITICAL: Did Trump blunder on the Jerusalem decision?

https://www.libertarianinstitute.org/scotthortonshow/12-6-17-mark-perry-moving-u-s-embassy-jerusalem-mistake/

December 9, 2017

*** begin quote ***

Mark Perry returns to the show to discuss his latest article for the American Conservative, “Tillerson, Mattis Warned Trump Against Embassy Move.” Perry doubts that Trump understands the true effect of his decision and explains why Jerusalem is integral to the Arab world and to Palestine in particular. Scott asks if, now that the two-state solution is clearly over, peace can be found in a single state—assuming apartheid conditions are lifted. Perry believes that the silver lining is that the Jerusalem decision creates division in what has become an ever-cozier relationship between Israel and Saudi Arabia. Scott then turns to Perry’s new book, “The Pentagon’s Wars: The Military’s Undeclared Wars Against America’s Presidents.” Mark Perry is the author of Talking to Terrorists: Why America Must Engage with its Enemies and The Most Dangerous Man in America: The Making of Douglas MacArthur. His most recent book, The Pentagon’s Wars was released in October. 

*** end quote ***

(1) It may have been or not. We’ll probably never know. Did Trump see the Israel and Saudi Arabia “alignment” as a threat to the American dominated world?

(2) The best point of the show imho is the recognition that the warfare state is killing our military with constant deployments. At some point, the troops are going to say “no”. We’ll have to watch reenlistment rate to see it. Remember the fall of Rome after the Legions were no longer composed of Roman citizens. 

(3) Interesting that the guest and host seem to feel that the foreign policy of the USA is controlled by zionists. And the influence of their lobbyists and donors is waning because of an awakening by voters, politicians, and bureaucrats that this is not in the USA’s best interest.

I personally think there will be no peace in the Middle East until Israel’s right to exist is accepted. Until them it’s just a ongoing war. Considering that Israel has / will defend itself and done it very well everytime tested, I don’t this is going to be settled at a conference table.

POLITICAL: Nullification is Constitutional and effective; as is Secession if we’re will to fight

Surprise, the Mainstream Media is Wrong Again: Yes, Nullification Does Work

*** begin quote ***

You don’t have to dig into a history book to prove nullification works. I can prove it does with one word.

Weed.

In 1996, California voters approved Proposition 215, the Compassionate Use Act, authorizing the possession, cultivation, and use of cannabis (marijuana) for limited medical use.

The federal government claims the power to strictly enforce a total prohibition of marijuana. It makes no exception for medical purposes. Despite federal law, states have advanced the issue each year. This has happened in spite of a 2005 Supreme Court opinion supporting federal prohibition, and a relentless year-to-year increase in spending and enforcement efforts by the federal government.

Today, despite ongoing attempts to enforce federal prohibition, 21 states and Washington D.C. have legalized marijuana for medical use, and 14 states and D.C. have decriminalized marijuana possession. Alaska, California, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington State have all legalized marijuana for recreational use. Each year, new state laws and regulations help expand the market, and each expansion further nullifies the unconstitutional federal ban in effect.

No matter what the mainstream tells you, nullification works. History proves this. The present proves this. And we will continue to prove it in the future.

*** end quote ***

Marijuana was outlawed to protect Hearst’s paper factories from competition. Fueled by that racist and untrue “Reeffer Madness”, “We, The Sheeple” were stampeded into another attempt at “Prohibition”.

Any prohibition doesn’t work. It merely raises the cost to the consumer and allows politicians and bureaucrats to exert more un-Constitutional control over “We, The Sheeple”.

Argh!
