on april 25th gregory despres shows up at the border in maine...thats not so odd. the odd thing was he was carrying a homemade sword, a hatchet, a knife, brass knuckles and a chainsaw stained with what appeared to be blood. now understand, he wasnt wering a turban so we really had no reason to be alarmed. sure, we confiscated his belongings, even though he was coming from canada and could say he was a lumberjack and those were the tools of his trade. we took his picture and fingerprints and told him come on in, enjoy yourself. apparently he enjoyed himself in canada the previous day buy killing a couple of his neighbors in minto, new brunswick. seems americas friend gregory decapitated his 74 year old neighbor and stabbed his common law wife to death. i understand that you just cant grab up everybody and hold them at the border just because they might seem odd but common sense says that maybe, just maybe, a red flag should have gone up here. why have the patriot act if not to prevent this...what?...oh thats right, the patriot act only takes away americans rights. sorry , what was i thinking.
oh it gets worse......federal authorities have arrested 26 illegal immigrants working for a subcontractor at northrop gruman ship systems. agents searched the pascagoula facility for suspected undocumented workers identified through northrop gruman records. northrop gruman has procedures to verify the citizenship or immigration status of individuals seeking work at its facilities, the company said in a prepared statement. well if northrop gruman has procedures how did they get hired in the first place. why dont we hear more about this? you want to bet that northrop gruman donated a ton of money to the republican party. you want to bet that northrop gruman is making some good cash because of the oil war in iraq. i guarantee the republicans are pushing this story under the carpet.
congress voted that medicinal marijuana is illegal. what a shame for some very sick people who live in constant pain. you might say that congress did that because marijuana might be abused by someone for whom it is not prescribed, that its a gateway drug. the real reason is that the pharmaceutical companies give a shitload (sorry i hate to use real technical terms with everyone) of money to congressmen (and women). the congresspeople need this money for their campaigns and to line their pockets. you see, you probably cant make....lets say ... paxil in your home so you need the drug companies for those drugs. you can, on the other hand , grow marijuana in your home, thereby cutting out the drug companies. the drug companies cant gouge you , pricewise, on something you grow at home. as for marijuana being abused...prescription drugs are abused everyday. hell the mouthpiece of the right, rush limbaugh, was caught redhanded and has asked his republican buddies to help him out. is it a gateway drug? no....and yes. having partaken in a little as a youth (i actually inhaled....but hell i'm not running for president) i found it no worse than than beer. i know many more people that are alcoholics than junkies. of course thats never brought up because the alcohol industry also gives alot of cash to congresspeople. the marijuana industry needs to start giving money to congresspeople...that will really help their cause.
well the week is halfway done.........try to accomplish something
