A State of H8

Peace be with you

A few thoughts on prop 8. I am not gay, but certainly didn’t vote for the bigoted prop 8. Just like what I do is none of your business, what you do is fine as long as it doesn’t hurt me. I really can’t imagine how gay marriage would do that.

I do however want to bring up not the only lack of support, but the active involvement against our attempts to secure even the basic human rights of the houseless, by the gay community. I’m not against your right to marry, but your against mine to even exist. I believe you need to think about how people who are really struggling against the same oppressor should work to gain mutual support.

I leave you with this link to a must read article written a year and half before prop 8 passed: When They Came for the Homosexuals…

    Why don’t you ask, Tad, about the H8ful people in your own movement, Verbena being the purge-happy hateful chieftainess of it?

    McKesson agrees to settle drug pricing complaints

    McKesson Corp. agreed to pay $350 million to settle claims it fraudulently inflated the price of more than 400 prescription drugs.

    McKesson, the largest U.S. medicine distributor, will also set aside $143 million to settle claims from federal and state health programs. The settlement and the reserve will result in an after-tax charge of $311 million, or $1.14 a share, in the current quarter, the company said. It admitted no wrongdoing.

    The claims stem from 2005 lawsuits by the New England Carpenters Health Benefits Fund and other plaintiffs accusing San Francisco-based McKesson of conspiring with Hearst Corp.’s First DataBank, a drug-price publisher, to push up the amount pharmacies pocket on drugs and to increase the wholesaler’s share of the business.

    whoopee! verbena has a heckler on the Plazoid! how exciting!

    Now, “anonymous,” not to be too nit-picky, but maybe a few pointers might help you in your noble endeavor:

    Firstly, proper grammar will help you get your point across in a clear and easily understood manner. For example, you wrote: “Why don’t you ask, Tad, about the H8ful people in your own movement.” A better way of writing this would have been: “Why don’t you, Tad, ask about…(blah blah blah).” This makes it clear that you are talking TO tad, and not asking someone to ASK tad. See?

    Nextern, you might want to throw in a couple of examples that support your main thesis, being that verbena is a so-on-and-so-forth. For example, you say that verbena is “purge-happy.” This point could be supported by mention of some political purges that she has headed up. For example, Stalin’s political purges in the Soviet Union – maybe she was there? Or Saddam Hussein’s power grab in Iraq? Or perhaps the unprecedented midterm dismissal of seven United States Attorneys on December 7, 2006 by the George W. Bush administration’s Department of Justice.

    Well, keep up the good work, and see ya next time!

    I asked tad, and he just said your just an anonymous troll and to ignore you. He said you must of been abused as a child and are really a victim of your brutalized mind. Besides that I (tad) don’t have a clue what your fucking talking about.

    sounds to me like the new “cannabis standards” include some wildly vague and abusable “standards” by which the city can choose to punish people.

    For example: from the Arcata Eye article, I learned that not associating with your neighbors is a reason that a complaint can legitimately be lodged, leading to a city inspection and follow-up action.

    (“Criteria which could form the basis of a complaint range from specific to undefined…..might include a frequent complaint by those who live near blocks of sealed grow houses where the occupants and their associates come and go incognito and don’t participate in the neighborhood – the simple loss of neighborly community.”)

    Is this “criteria” or “standard” or whatever equally applicable to everyone? If I have a stuck-up snooty neighbor who refuses to associate with my friendly neighbors and myself, can I have the city inspect and then punish them? Or is it just cannabis-smokers who are subject to this enforcement of “neighborly community?”

    It seems to me that it would make more sense to address the disastrous effects of the failed “war on drugs” and right the wrongs that have been committed against the innocent rather than to ratchet up the bigotry and invasions of privacy.

    It seems to me that these “standards” or whatever are probably not even constitutional. They definitely would lead to violations of our rights to “be free from unreasonable search and seizure (4th Amendment)” and do not afford “equal protection under the law (14th Amendment)” to all of us.

    The comparison by Eric Heimstadt of the marijuana industry to Upton Sinclair’s novel “The Jungle” is pretty silly. I wonder how Heimstadt feels about Arcata’s very own international Sun Valley Floral Farms and their wonderful working conditions and health hazards.

    If, as some of these folks keep saying, they want to ensure that “valid 215 patients have safe access” to their medicine, and they want people to stop “abusing” the medicinal marijuana laws, then LEGALIZE IT!

    Peace be with you Transient

    The new ordinance makes reporting your grow mandatory if more then one person in a household has a script. The odds of me finding a non-215 person to allow me to grow at their house is almost impossible. Is my medical information any of the city’s fucking busyness? The law makes grows limited to 5 feet tall. What if my needed strain of medicine grows taller then that?

    The law was designed to be the first in a series of steps to heavily regulate a referendum that was designed not to be heavily regulated. If you start playing “rat out your neighbors” like Rebecca Kimble advocates then many, many people in Arcata will find themselves the subjects of investigations. I am pretty sure it will be used as another “tool” in the “broken windows policing” model all cops are beginning to morph into. Even if you have 20,000 city residents not complaining about your activities one is all it takes to make you the problem in their problem oriented policing model.

    I wish you all the best of luck, but when we switch from a live and let live society to a snitch out whoever you can society, then we’re fucked. And when it is all over something as innoxious as the Mother’s own herb, then we’re doubly fucked.
