Farmers Arrested Planting Hemp On DEA Headquarters Lawn

A group of civilly-disobedient hemp farmers and business leaders were arrested Tuesday morning while digging up the lawn to plant industrial hemp seeds at the headquarters of the Drug Enforcement Administration.

David Bronner, the president of Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps, a more than 60-year-old company that does tens of millions of dollars of business annually, was among those arrested.

Bronner buys the hemp used in his soaps from Canadian farmers. He was arrested outside the DEA museum, which shares space with the headquarters.

"Our kids are going to come to this museum and say, 'My God. Your generation was crazy. What the hell is wrong with you people?'" he said as Arlington County Police handcuffed him and walked him to a waiting car.

The group was arrested for trespassing.

Read more at HufPo, and please let me know if you have a better source of info, preferably from the organizers. Video on the bottom of that page.  You know, when they get out of jail for protesting the unconstitutional ban of a plant that is legal to own, and has no psychoactive propertiesl. Ever wonder why pot was illegal? its because of the interests of competive technology to Hemp, and Racism. Legal propriety be damned.

Sonnet: England in 1819

An old, mad, blind, despised, and dying king, -
Princes, the dregs of their dull race, who flow
Through public scorn, -mud from a muddy spring, -
Rulers who neither see, nor feel, nor know,
But leech-like to their fainting country cling,
Till they drop, blind in blood, without a blow, -
A people starved and stabbed in the untilled field, -
An army, which liberticide and prey
Makes as a two-edged sword to all who wield, -
Golden and sanguine laws which tempt and slay;
Religion Christless, Godless -a book sealed;
A Senate, -Time's worst statute unrepealed, -
Are graves from which a glorious Phantom may
Burst, to illumine our tempestuous day.

Declaration of a National State of Terrorny

The Difference between this President and the Last?

Well, the old one wasn't eligible for re-election...

"Hmm, unprecedented executive power seized in secrecy and fear, you say?"

"What kind of government did we get," they asked Franklin as he walked out of those great halls, and I'm sorry to say, he did not answer "I'm sorry, thats classified."
Don't know if this one is supposed to be a secret, as it is definitely, not classified, but I only found the following in the Federal Register, buried, after it left the desk of the same President who stated at the beginning of his term that (paraphrase) "Every Executive Order I sign, will be posted on the WhiteHouse web page, for public review, within hours of my receiving signature"

Well, let me know if you see what I found on an obscure government page, between thousands of pages of bureaucratic notices and assorted federal minutia, on the White House page, where it was promised. Ill even give you the link.

No? then I'll paste it here for you, at the bottom of this post, from the President who promised you transparency, and a "radical departure from the policies of the previous administration."

And as I wrote last October:
[...I]f he was willing, he would have drug these skeletons out in to the open and painted himself as a hero setting off to slay an abusive totalitarian state. But he hasn't, and he continually dismisses any mention of it. And why? Because that leviathan state is what he voted for, It's secrecy and shadows are what he needs, and its abusive totalitarian power is what he craves.

He entered this campaign with a smoking gun, and all he could think of is how many bullets might be left in the magazine.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

Sometimes I hate it when I'm right...
Tempus Fugit.

Warsaw Uprising Hero Dies

"When you cannot defend freedom through peaceful means, you have to use arms to fight Nazism, dictatorship, chauvinism"...

From AP:

WARSAW, Poland – Marek Edelman, the last surviving leader of the ill-fated 1943 Warsaw ghetto revolt against the Nazis, died Friday at the age of 90.

Edelman died of old age at the family home of his friend Paula Sawicka, where he had lived for the past two years.

"He died at home, among friends, among his close people," Sawicka told The Associated Press.

Most of Edelman's adult life was dedicated to the defense of human life, dignity and freedom. He fought the Nazis in the doomed Warsaw ghetto revolt and later in the Warsaw city Uprising. And then for decades he fought communism in Poland.

His heroism earned him the French Legion of Honor and Poland's highest civilian distinction, the Order of the White Eagle.

For more Information on the Uprising itself, and what brave men and women like Edelman put on the line so many years ago, see Mike V's Strippers, subtitled: 'Juden haben waffen!':

"I, myself, remained on the balcony and fired at the confused and embarrassed Germans with my Mauser. From my balcony, I could see them in all their helplessness and their loss of control. The air was full of wails and shouts. Many of them tried to run to the walls of the houses for cover but everything was barred and beyond that, death was pursuing them. In the noise, the fluster, and the cries of the wounded, we heard the astonished outcry of one of the Germans: 'Juden haben waffen! Juden haben waffen!' ('The Jews have arms!') . . .

The battle lasted for about a half an hour. The Germans withdrew and there were many corpses and wounded in the street."

Then repeat after me:
"Never Again."
Fighting men and women will always be missed, but never forgotten.
