proletariatprincess commented on the diary post Venezuela: What CNN (or CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, etc.) Won’t Tell You by Phoenix Woman.
You are absolutely right. Workers need to take their unions back if we are ever to make progress. But the unions involvement with CIA and NGOs to advance the US foreign policy is nothing new. It goes way back to the Red Scare and the McCarthy era when US unions, to its shame and eventual [...]
The System so corrupt and incompetent it takes my breath away. I am ashamed to have Diane Feinstein serve as a senator from my state. It is so past time to retire, Difi. Move to Israel where your real interests lie.
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post Come Saturday Morning: The Tea Party, the DNC’s Best Friend
I would add that more Dems voted for Bush than for Nader. I hope we can put this to rest now. Nader had nothing to do with Bush’s ascent to the White house. The Supremes did that all by themselves.
Christians seem to expect discounts and special treatment and when denied, they claim they are persecuted.
I love the writer’s comment in response to the christian who said that his cause was so good that it deserved a discount. What nonsense…and what a great comeback, cocktailhag.
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post Marijuana Legalization Officially on the Alaska Ballot this August
More good news on the MJ front. The very foundations of the Drug War (so called) are trembling at the base. A good thing for the liberty of the people.
Now we have to consider what we are going to do with all those drug warriors (cops, agents, prison guards) all the returning vets, and the stated intent to reduce troop numbers in the Army. That is a lot of jobs being eliminated. It won’t all happen at once, of course, but the long term effect will be felt.
The solution is, of course, huge public works programs to rebuild our aging infrastructure. But since our corporate masters will not see any big short term profit from public works, it is unlikely to happen under our current system.

Now it is official: Expressing opposition to war and/or the military is subject to criminal prosecution.
proletariatprincess commented on the diary post Can America Afford To Bring Home The Employee Army? by JP Sottile.
The War on Drugs (so called) is also coming to an ignoble end. Not soon enough certainly, but that will have a huge impact on Law enforcement and the Prison Industrial Complex. It will mean fewer jobs for vets and fewer vets incarcerated for drug crimes. Maybe new crimes will be in vented to make [...]
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post CBS New is Latest Pollster to Find a Majority Back Marijuana Legalization
wow. 86% And yet my Kaiser Plan remains neutral on the subject. Nonsense. I vaporize cannabis daily for relief of pain and other symptoms and make sure that not only my doctor, but everyone else knows it and how it is helping me. I’m an old woman and cannabis improves the quality of my life. For years I have wondered why anyone would want to deny an effective medication with minimal side effects based on proven lies and prejudice. It is about time this country woke up to the truth.
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post Anapolis Police Chief Cites Parody Story About Marijuana Overdoses in Testimony
I wonder if he feels foolish now that he knows it was a satire/hoax. Or maybe he will continue to defend his position refusing to believe the truth….which would disgust me, but not surprise. Willful ignorance is the American Way, it seems…
I love it! Let’s do it. But let us start negotiations at at least 10 cents per transaction and go from there there. Make it open ended too. Tie the rate increase to the level of profits made. While we are at it, we should tighten up the regulations of the Stallion that is capitalism [...]
…happy for you, Hilary. Now go home.
Nothing new here except the outrage. Throughout history women have received greater punishment then men for the same crimes or prosecuted for crimes which men never are charged. Crimes against women are often dismissed or ignored accept in the case of high status women. The fact that there is some outrage at this stage is a sign of progress…..but we aren’t even close to justice yet.
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post Failed UAW Vote At Volkswagen Plant Leads To Existential Questions
The real issue here is why do so many USAmericans vote against their own interests…even in union elections.
Frankly, I think it is super gullibility. People believe what they are told to fear even when there is no logic to their fears. Maybe it is just stupidity.
proletariatprincess commented on the diary post UPDATE: Union Vote at VW plant in TN Fails. German VW Worker Explains Benefits of Worker Council. Radio Host Stunned. by spocko.
I am heartbroken by this news. I just can’t imagine why workers would not want a say in the workplace or to gather together to bargain collectively for better wages hours and working conditions. They must really distrust each other too. The bosses are very good at pitting one worker against another….they have been doing [...]
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post Feds Provide New Guidance to Help Marijuana Banking
So. The banksters will still hold all the cards. Banks are not required to do the right thing, but are just given guild lines for behavior. I for one trust Marijuana venders more than I trust bankers. We know for sure that bankers are crooks….we don’t know about the venders.
I congratulate the French people on their health care system that is the best in the world, but I worry that since Holland has become Obama’s lapdog, US influence will begin to undermine France’s system. It is happening in Canada now. I believe the USA has corrupted those two governments in order to destroy their social programs. US propaganda tried to convince USAmericans that they have they greatest healthcare in the world, but as long as there are examples like France and Canada, most thinking people don’t buy it. Solution? Destroy the other systems by corrupting elections and putting right wing leaders in place who agree with US.
I really do blame USA for most of the worlds ills. I have said often that the world will be better off when this global empire fails at long last.
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post The Cossacks Work for the Czar: Marijuana Rescheduling Edition
We all know this train has left the station. The old nonsense arguments just don’t fly anymore. Everyone knows better. Why our politicians continue to be on the losing side of this argument about cannabis is not very logical politically and they will live to regret it in the long run.
They will look like the fools they are when the history is written.
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post Rep. Cohen Wants to Make the Drug Czar Office Less Stupid
Willful ignorance is very hard to fight. Unfortunately, ignorance seems to be a way of life for many Americans…..and they are proud of it too. It is encouraged by the media and the schools when the subject is cannabis. Even when they know better…or should know better, they recite the same old drugwar rhetoric that has no basis in reality. Not only that, they consider themselves more virtuous than those who are open minded and think for themselves to draw conclusions based on real experience.
How do you convince people like that? I don’t think it is possible in most cases.
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post Is Any Democrat Desperate Enough to Challenge Clinton?
There has never been a better time to introduce a third party candidate. Presuming, of course, that there are already 2 parties, which most of us do not believe anymore.
I would vote for Ralph Nader again, but he is getting up there now. There is some chat out there about Bernie Sanders.
But the fact is, I don’t believe our votes count anymore. Our corporate masters will decide which Tweedledee Tweedledum candidate will prevail. Those decisions are just too important to trust to the will of the electorate…..at least at the Federal level. I have more faith that my vote will be counted at the local and state level.
proletariatprincess commented on the blog post The Fear of “Big Marijuana” is Completely Irrational
Im with blueokie on this one. I found this particular Kennedy really obnoxious. What is it about people recovering from an abuse of substance that makes them think they are experts on the subject? Or that they have more wisdom than the rest of us who have not held such a privileged position in life.
I thought it was telling that he said that he didn’t use cannabis because he had asthma so he went on to harder drugs. I wonder if his opinion would be different now if he had stayed with weed and not suffered any ill effect like most who use it.
I don’t understand why normally logical and intelligent people are so stupid when it comes to discussing cannabis. Of course, some people are just stupid bigots anyway….
