Guest blogger TB on a recent tragedy in Cali…
In Bakersfield, California a man came home and mutilated his 4 yr old son leaving him unconscious and bleeding profusely. When inspected by doctors they found that one of his eyes and the surrounding muscle were missing and the other eye was damaged beyond repair. Neighbors found the boy lying naked on the floor bleeding heavily with bite marks on his hands. When the boy was questioned about what had happened he replied, “My daddy ate my eyes out.”
They found the boy’s father, 34-year-old Angelo Mendoza, high on PCP in a nearby back yard chained to a tree trying to hack his legs off with an ax.
Once they process this asshole into a prison he will get what he deserves. News will spread to all the other inmates and only god knows what they will have in store for this piece of shit. What is this world coming to?
TB writes about his hyphy (?) days…
Back in Northern California we had this little thing called Hyphy. Originally this phrase was just used as an adverb/adjective but somehow it became a “Way of life”.
Hyphy was the name and acting like a bunch of inebriated morons was the game . That was basically the gist of Hyphy, getting drunk and high off primo medicinal ganja while rollin’ on E pills (sigh… it was fun while it lasted). But one of the weirdest things to ever be conceived from this craziness was call ghost riding. You would turn your speakers up, put your car in drive and then jump out of your still moving vehicle and dance alongside it while still moving (or you could dance on top of your car… as long as you get back in the car before it crashes into something). So I guess it’s supposed to reenact a ghost mysteriously riding in your car. Continue reading
So in California people passed a bill granting more leg space for chickens that are 2 days from getting their heads chopped off but deny a homosexuals right to marry. Or allowing drug users/offenders to be sent to rehab instead of herding them into already packed jails and prisons (sleeping in a cell with murderers, rapists and others who deserve to be separated from society). I thought that was bad but today I saw a news report about an Orlando man who was put in jail for feeding homeless people. People seriously need to get their priorities straightened out.

Guest blogger thabooger shares his views on weed….
To this day I still can’t figure out why marijuana is illegal. It’s the safest drug to ever be consumed by a human being. It’s impossible to overdose on it although scientists say in order to OD on marijuana you would have to smoke your own body weight… so that’s like a little over 200 pounds of marijuana (Where the hell am I gonna get money for that? And you wouldn’t be able to stay awake for that long anyways).
Most people I talk to have this false notion that the reason for marijuana prohibition is backed by some sort of scientific research. In fact most people still think that if smoked you will eventually end up in a psycho ward (watch the old anti-marijuana propaganda video Reefer Madness if you get a chance). The real reasons for its demonization is scattered with unwarranted fear, corporate assholes protecting their assets (big tobacco and alcohol), racial tension towards Hispanics, good old fashion yellow journalism and last but most definitely not least our beloved legislators in all their ignorant, incompetent and corrupt glory. I mean for Christ’s sake it used to be legal to smoke weed and eat hash laced candy. There was even a time where the government required people to grow hemp!
There are more reasons to make it legal than to keep it illegal. The government’s so called “War on drugs” was a major flop. It currently wastes around 20 billion dollars a year trying to stop people from getting high (which I think is a God-Tgiven right). Don’t get me wrong, I can totally understand why they would want (crack) cocaine, crystal meth, heroin, and the likes to be illegal. Those drugs have proven to be detrimental to society and cause people to steal and in some cases even kill just to get that high again. But weed? Pot? Buddha? Ganga? Trees? Hash? The Wacky Tobaccy? Give me a break. I remember a scene in Half Baked where Dave Chapelle was required to go to a substance abuse class for marijuana. He walks up to the podium and tells everyone that he needs help because me smokes marijuana. He then gets booed off the stage when Bob Saget stands up and asks “You ever suck d*ck for marijuana?” Funny scene but the message is loud and clear. Marijuana is less addictive than alcohol and tobacco. And in my personal experience marijuana is nowhere near a gateway drug.
BUT WAIT!!! California??? Legal weed??? Not just for medicinal use??? According to CBS 5 news just announced that Assemblyman Tom Ammiano, D-San Francisco, introduced legislation Monday that could approve the sale and taxing of marijuana for recreational use (if approved by the California Legislature). If taxed California would receive 14 billion annually on marijuana sales.
“With the state in the midst of an historic economic crisis, the move towards regulating and taxing marijuana is simply common sense,” says Ammiano.
Makes sense to me. I think it’s time that the right wing fascist conservatives of America should just step aside and let the Constitution take center plate because the Bible is seriously wearing out its welcome. America was not founded as a Christian nation; in fact a lot of the founding fathers were Atheists. No offense to any Christians out there…
