On Occupiers, Marijuana Activists and Voting

fatfuckGentle Readers,
We offer our apologia for sticking the ugly mug right at the beginning of this blog but we hope to shake some sense into a couple people, maybe.

We don’t know where the Occupiers are right now but bet they will be back when the presidential elections come into view. That is their first mistake. Why are they waiting to make a statement? Who is their leader? We welcome the answers to any of these questions, seriously.
We should be hearing from them all the time, if they have a real message, right?
Last time around, NYC police allowed them to stay in the parks until after elections and then started macing and beating them. Yesterday, a few people held a silent smoke-in protest at the town hall in Sussex, NJ. New Jersey passed medical marijuana legislation when Governor Jon Corzine signed the bill to make it legal the day before Gov. Chris (Cartman) Christie, took the office. On signing the measure Corzine noted, “I have enormous gratitude to the people of New Jersey for this decade of opportunity to serve.” He left the state with a gift, something the people want, the Compassionate Use of Medical Marijuana Act.
In the Garden State, sixty percent of residents polled recently said they would not mind if a neighbor grew marijuana. The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University, showed that forty-eight percent of registered voters backed the idea of recreational marijuana use and an equal forty-eight percent would vote against it.
The problem with NJ folks is the same as the problem the Occupiers have. It could be fixed, easily. Put on your thinking caps. In NJ, voters under thirty years old make up only ten percent of those registered. And consider this…nationally, between 1996 and 2012 the non-Hispanic White share of the voting population decreased by over eleven percentage points. This information comes from the US Census. Who do we usually see at protests against the ‘system,’ as it is vaguely referred to? Well, let’s see what kind of people are in this photo…vote

What we are taking from all this is that young people need to REGISTER TO VOTE. All people need to, if you are allowed. Just take NJ as an example, a petrie dish, if you will for this little example. With half the voters against marijuana and half for it, all it would take to make it legal would be for all of the people who want it to go and register to vote.
Dig?
Once you do that, do not wait until the big election in two years. Start sending your message as soon as possible. Start small with local elections. If somebody is campaigning in NJ for the position of County Dogcatcher and Christie supports him, vote for the other candidate. DO NOT VOTE FOR ANYONE. USE YOUR VOTE TO VOTE AGAINST THE BAD GUYS. When Christie’s choice for Dogcatcher loses, it sends a message. It goes up the line. We would suggest voting out all incumbents to neutralize the Lobbyists who really run the country, too.
For all the tricks, all the games, all the brainwashing and mind-control that goes on, one thing that cannot be fought is the power of the mass vote. We are trained to think we do not count. What can one vote mean? Especially the vote of somebody who has been beaten down…What good can one vote do? That is exactly why power brokers like Christie have citizens by the balls. We are so used to being told that we do not count, that we do not even bother. That is how the bad guys win.
Bad guys? While half the people approve of MMJ in NJ, here is what ‘The Girth With No Mirth’ had to say, “To me, it’s just not the quality of life we want to have here in the state of New Jersey and there’s no tax revenue that’s worth that.”
We like NJ but go tell the people in Bayonne and Fort Lee about quality of life. It is not so pretty there. Where is the quality of life for the people in NJ prisons for possessing marijuana for medical use? Where did Christie hide his last package of Hostess Ding-Dongs?
Who knows? These rhetorical questions can hang there forever unless somebody takes action.
Please go register to vote and keep up with any and all local elections…for you own good and for the good of us all!

On Vocabulary: The Most Profane, Dirtiest Word (contains a bad word it is legal to say)

voteLiterate Readers and Cunning Linguists,

Having just overheard a version of the evening news we report about the lack of change in Congress as regards all thing screwed up in this country (USA). That’s what they said on TV so it has to be true, unless the internet says it is not. A lot of people have been coming to read the blog on “What Would Allen Ginsberg Do…” so we suppose they may be gearing up.
We thank the anonymous but googlable Ms. Buckly of the Parkridge, NJ, school district for raising the question by instructing people to read about Ginsberg and Occupiers. We welcome the opinions of all readers. Even Chris Christie.

It is enough to make a person say fuck!!!
The F-word used to be considered the second most foul word in our insult slang and that of other nations. However, this view is skewed. We see the word fuck all over the place. It is on walls. It is in books. It is in the movies and sometimes slips onto network television. This being no outlaw word, we have adopted it as a national treasure.

LOBBYIST, on the other hand, fails to appear scrawled in paint under bridges and on railroad cars, carved into K-12 school desks when they were made of wood or on daring tattoos.
Lobbyist is fuck times ten. It requires a lobbyist to truly fuck us all. They pay our elected officials on both sides of the aisles…the cash concerns do not have party lines. Money crosses every line. Money redraws lines (see US Constitution).

Oddly, but concidence is oft the case in these things, the word ‘lobbyist’ has the same amount of letters as the word ‘occupier’. Not getting many dispatches from Occupiers lately, but admittedly ignoring mainstream news, we reckon they recline and plot while waiting for the next Presidential election. They regard linguistics lightly, obviously, since they do not see the difference between ‘fuck’ and ‘lobbyist.’
Maybe they do – but if so, they stand guilty for not encouraging their mates to REGISTER TO VOTE AND VOTE OUT EVERY INCUMBENT CANDIDATE ON THE TICKET EVERY TIME.
DO NOT VOTE ‘FOR’…VOTE ‘AGAINST’…THIS IS WAR!
It may not seem like a big thing. Votes have been rigged like the Bush family did in Florida. It is easy to rig a vote in a state where many residents are retirees, minorities and indigents. It is a whole different thing to have a groundswell of votes come in where even missing chats are not enough to argue over.
USE YOUR VOTE ALREADY!!!
The vote is the big lie. Nobody profiting from it wants their constituents to know how much they stole from them over the years. Some old members of Congress need to be wheelchaired in and shaken awake to vote. The dubious question of whether they even know which Bill the are voting on scares us.
This way the lobbyists lose the longtime good old boy connections which are treasonous, really. We pay taxes which pay elected officials in Congress and the House of Representatives. They pledge to serve us. Then they pocket a wad from an old pal and sell us down the river to buy a new boat for themselves.

We do not mean to disparage the Occupiers. We may have in the past but in recently speaking with activists like Paul Krassner and the late Amiri Baraka, both of whom said the group had good intentions if nothing else, we reformed but still wish for an organized front that will properly plan and target the bad guys in the only way that cannot be disputed en masse.

Go for it!!!
Please!!!!!
