The Politics and Consequences of Commercialized Pot

According to Ben Cort, drug addiction consultant, counselor, and author of Weed Inc.—The Truth about THC, the Pot Lobby, and the Commercial Marijuana Industry, published in 2017,  billionaire “social justice” financier George Soros has spent over $100 million to commercialize high-potency marijuana products in the United States.  This money has mostly been run through Soros’s Drug Policy Alliance (DPA). Cort, a successful business owner and former addict himself, became an active leader opposing the DPA and its commercial, media, and political allies attempting to legalize and commercialize the cannabis industry in his home state of Colorado. The battle took the form of a proposed amendment to change Colorado’s Constitution to legalize, “regulate” and commercialize the cannabis (marijuana) industry.  It was called Proposition 64.

The Truth about Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence

In 441 BC, the Greek playwright Sophocles wrote a drama called Antigone that contained this line:

“Evil appears good in the minds of those whom God leads to destruction.”

Similar observations can be found in other Greek, Hebrew, and Roman literature, including Isaiah 5:20 written sometime before 686 BC.

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil…”

Another familiar form of it is spoken by Prometheus in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s play, “The Masque of Pandora,” written in 1875:

“Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad.”

In August 2017, Senator Cory Booker, Democrat from New Jersey, introduced a bill in the U.S. Senate to legalize marijuana on the federal level.

Intelligent Design versus Humanist Dogma

Intelligent Design theory infers the existence of an intelligent designer of creation based on evidence. This evidence comes from intricate study of microbiology and other sciences, probability theory, and simple logic.  By that deductive process it supports theism and questions the claims of Darwinism. Intelligent Design lends scientific and intellectual support to theistic religious faiths, including Christianity and Judaism, and makes many of the claims of Darwinian evolution look highly improbable and silly.

The statue of Robert E. Lee still stands unshrouded in Charlottesville VA. It is currently protected by Virginia State law, but liberal politicians and activists are suing to remove it. Public opinion polls in 2017 favored keeping the statue in place  The media coverage of protests to stop its removal in 2017 was sickening in its willful ignorance  and  dishonesty.

The American Iliad Continues

On April 9, 1865, a gallant Union officer went out of his way to honor the surrendering Confederate troops at Appomattox. To his great and everlasting credit, Union Lieutenant General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, the heroic defender of Little Round Top at Gettysburg, a brave, honest, and compassionate Christian soldier, had his Union troops give a salute of arms to the surrendering Confederate regiments as they passed in final review before the Union victors. They had been their adversaries in war, but now these Union soldiers, who had made blood sacrifices of their own, saluted the courage and honor of the defeated Confederate soldiers. The Confederate soldiers believed in the justice and righteousness of their cause, and when the surrender at Appomattox came, they gave up their regimental banners with tears and weeping.

Ireland and the Tuatha De Danann

I worked like a banshee,” she said

IMG 0095A curious expression,” I thought.  Ireland is a land of mystic legend, haunting music, lilting poetry, and colorful expressions, and these have followed the Irish and their descendents around the world.  I happen to be fond of all these things in addition to a good bowl of Irish stew. I seldom write poetry, but hearing this reference to banshees as an expression of hard work set me to researching and reminiscing about Irish culture, and the words came. This poem was written in May 2008 after taking an evening walk in the mountains of Western North Carolina.
