Join Now: President Jill Stein’s Sticky Green New Deal: Hemp For Victory — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

It’s crunch time for Jill Stein’s Green Presidential campaign. If you want to help us win the Sticky Green Revolution, let’s put it into high gear!

Most people want a Third Party. Most people want Legalized Medical Marijuana. Most people want complete withdrawal from warmongering. Most people want restoration of our Human/Civil/Constitutional Rights. http://www.usatoday.com/news/politics/story/2011-12-12/third-party-poll/51866458/1 Still, our campaign is completely out of money. We need just 20 Stoner Donors in each state – the same amount of people who come together to smoke a pound of pot.

That number is based on each of the 20 people buying a $250 bag of Karma: If you usually buy a $250 or more bag of pot, then, this time give that money to Jill Stein’s campaign, and let’s get this Legalized once and for all, and get ourselves free. If you’re the kind of person that only buys a $60 bag, then give that $60 to Jill. But if you’re the one who buys an $800 bag, fork it over: We’re working for you!

The campaign has no money, but the Marijuana industry pulls in over a trillion dollars a year. We’re only asking for a drop in the bucket, in exchange for your freedom and dignity. And if we Elect Jill Stein, she won’t poison all the children in the world with Fracking, as Obama and Romney have promised to do.  https://jillstein.nationbuilder.com/donate

And don’t worry about missing a week of loyalty to your usual local grower, dealer, importer, or runner: When President Jill Stein removes Marijuana from Schedule One on Day One of the Stein Administration, Medical Marijuana will be Legal, and we can all start breathing easier! Beginning that first Legal day, the skills that our local and regional suppliers have will be very valuable, and they could have lots more customers.

The Jill Stein for President campaign is on the ballot in 32 states now, and in the next few days with your help, we could make another seven. Maybe even eight:

North Carolina’s ballot access laws are regressive, repressive, reprehensible, and wrong: 80,000 signatures! There’s a petition to ask North Carolina to be reasonable and let Jill on the ballot.  http://www.change.org/petitions/north-carolina-state-board-of-elections-add-jill-stein-representative-for-the-green-party And you can download the actual ballot access petition to sign it if you’re a North Carolina registered voter. If you do download the petition, please get people without internet access to sign it too, before you send it in (right away). You can download it here. http://www.ncgreenparty.org/ Here’s another petition from North Carolina. http://www.change.org/petitions/all-voters-join-the-green-party-and-support-jill-stein

We need to get lots of Virginia voter signatures really fast to get Jill on the ballot in that state. 415-425-3733. Please hurry!  http://www.vagreenparty.org/ballotaccess/ballotaccess2012.html Nebraska too. http://www.nebraskagreens.org/contact_us/  And Wyoming.  asunshinemoon@yahoo.com   We also need to hit it in Kentucky  (http://kygreenparty.org/), Alabama (http://www.alabamagreens.org/), North Dakota (https://www.facebook.com/greenpartynd), and Rhode Island (http://www.greens.org/ri/).

In November’s Presidential Election, if Jill Stein carries: (1) The states that now have Medical Marijuana; and (2) the states voting on it this year; and (3) just one more state, then she’ll be President, and we’ll be free. Forty-four of the 51 states are trying to Legalize Marijuana this year, and it’s on the ballot in ten. That means that we really have to rally those petition signers in North Dakota, where people will be voting on Marijuana this fall. Please help us reach the pot vote in North Dakota if you can.

This Election we have four Right-wing candidates with connections to the Koch brothers and to the Fracking industry: Obama, Romney, Ron Paul, and Gary Johnson. The first two also have very close connections to Bain Capital and to Central American Death Squads. It’s Koch versus pot, because the Kochs and their cohorts are in the business of denying Global Warming. That’s exactly what Obama, Romney, Paul, and Johnson are doing when they say that Fracking is legitimate science: They’re lying and denying.

Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant. That means more weight of Hemp can be grown per acre than any other plant. That means that it is the only way to combat Global Warming: Having the highest biomass, it is the one material in the world from which we can produce the most alcohol, and alcohol is a clean fuel that can power any internal combustion engine without causing Global Warming. That’s because alcohol (Ethanol) and other biofuels hold no Carbon at all, other than what the living plant absorbed from our atmosphere.

Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral and have Zero net Carbon emissions when burned. Hemp is also the richest source of biodiesel in the world, as the seeds need only be squeezed: They are 40% Diesel fuel. And, having the highest biomass, Hemp is also the richest source of “Natural” Gas, except the biogas that comes from Hemp – the same gas, Methane/CH4 – causes no Global Warming when burned, like Fracked Gas does, because mined and drilled “Natural” Gas comes from fossils whose constituents have long been out of our air and add lots of Carbon to it, while Hempen biogas holds only the Carbon that the living plants just absorbed – Carbon Neutral.

Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis that growing Hemp on 6% of our arable land can supply all of this country’s energy without causing Global Warming. Vote for Jill Stein. Legalize Marijuana. Make our Government stop denying Global Warming. We’ve got to do it now.  http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/

Obama’s Al Qaeda Lite Mercenary Terrorists Conducting Genocide Against World’s Oldest Christian Community

Obama’s Al Qaeda Lite Mercenary Terrorists Conducting Genocide of World’s Oldest Christian Community — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

During his journey on the road to Damascus in Syria, Saul had a vision or hallucination of Jesus four years after his Execution: Saul had been a tax collector and a scourge to Christians (so the story goes). He was immediately transformed; he changed his name from Saul (“Great”) to Paul (“Humble”), and was later called St. Paul. He became the world’s foremost promoter of Christianity, writing 14 of the 27 books in the New Testament. This was the practical beginning of Christianity. Syrian Christians still speak the same Aramaic language Jesus spoke. Syria is home to the Nasrani: The Nazarenes. Many people think Jesus was a Nazarene.

They are called the “Syrian Rebels” or the “Syrian Opposition.” Fighters with the Al Qaeda-manned Free Syrian Army (armed through Turkey by the US and its allies on President Obama’s orders) are conducting Genocide against the world’s oldest Christian community.  http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2012/08/09/255390/turkish-ambulances-take-arms-into-syria/#.UDHOHkRMHJw and http://ncm.org/news/press/as_fighting_in_syria_continues_nazarenes_in_neighboring_countries_respond/ and http://friendsofsyria.wordpress.com/2012/08/18/hague-and-clintons-tax-payers-money-butchering-innocent-people/ and http://mobile.reuters.com/article/idUSBRE8701OK20120801?irpc=932

Here you can watch the Free Syrian Army Torture a man to death by cutting his throat for supporting Assad, and hear the US-backed Terrorist publicly proclaim the FSA’s intention and goal: “Death to all Government supporters” including the Syrian Christians, associating them with shabihas,” or “thugs” of the Assad Government. The segment on Syria, from Lebanon’s New TV, begins at 12:50 of the following video clip: At 14:10, you’ll hear the Terrorists’ Genocide pronouncement. http://www.linktv.org/mosaic/20120813/mosaic-news-08-13-12-world-news-from-the-middle-east-video

If President Obama pushes ahead with his proposed “No-Fly Zone” [an act of war], then the Al Qaeda-affiliated Terrorists can use that cover (Obama’s bombing by of civilian areas in the No-Fly Zone, like in Libya) to carry out their twin Genocides, against both the minority Shia Muslims there – Assad is one – and the minority Christians, most of whom support the Syrian Government. US weapons smuggled to the group in Syria called Al Qaeda in Iraq from Turkey made their way to Iraq, where Al Qaeda in Iraq then took credit for deadly attacks on Shia pilgrims there. http://jafarianews.com/2012/08/iraq-attacks-on-shias-and-lawyers-kill-19/

Al Qaeda may well carry out that threat to destroy the Christians of Syria, just as Obama’s Al Qaeda Terrorist Mercenaries in Libya Genocided the Black people of Libya, for supporting Qadaffi. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/07/08/us-backed-al-qaida-manned-oil-dictatorship-genociding-torturing-black-libyans-obama-ny-times-say-rigged-election-was-cool/

And, people in Israel suspect that Al Qaeda has it in for them. They’ve said as much. Here the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) discusses its concern over the influx of Al Qaeda beligerent to Israel. http://www.aipac.org/NearEastReport/pdf/NER-20120809.pdf

Iraq’s priceless biblical antiquities were looted for profit during the Iraq War. Furthermore, because they were harvested by looters rather than archaeologists, massive amounts of the historical integrity was lost when the items were found. And now Syria’s priceless biblical antiquities, those in the museums and those in the ground, will be looted and sold by war profiteers. President Obama has no right to do this to yet another country. He has no right to destroy these people and these treasures. The antiquities and the Christian community that his Al Qaeda Mercenaries seek to annihilate have existed for thousands of years. They are part of the world’s heritage.  http://www.nsearch.com/blogs/350/3402/syrian-antiquities-can-t-escape

Syria is no threat to the United States. Syrian fighting would never have started if we weren’t sending arms to the Rebels. It would end if we stop. The Syrian people do not want war. We have no right to impose it. Won’t somebody think of the children? The attack that US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton exploited to push for US intervention in Syria, the Al Houla Massacre, was actually carried out by the Al Qaeda side, not the Syrian Government, as Sec. Clinton claimed in her lies about the incident. In truth, these were Shia children.

 

 

One can see that the Rebel forces filming it (with top professional equipment) are there in plenty of time to manipulate the children, unwittingly demonstrating that the attack has just happened, because rigor mortis has not yet set in. And it was in fact the FSA Rebels who killed those children, according to witnesses. They killed them, so they and Clinton could lie about it, pretending that Assad was responsible.

We just lost two wars; got smeared by Iraq. And now Obama is mongering to start a war with the three allies Syria, Iraq, and Iran. Look at logic: Iraq beat us by itself. Teamed up with two other countries, and armed by bordering Russia, they’ll obviously smear us again. But it will raise the price of Oil, which is what Obama’s really about.  http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2874993/posts

President Obama used to tell us that Al Qaeda was the enemy, just a few months ago. Of course, while he was saying it, he was running bombing cover for Al Qaeda in May 2012 (then called the “Libyan Rebels”) as they carried out the Libyan Genocide.  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-503544_162-57425645-503544/obama-defeat-of-al-qaeda-within-our-reach/

Meanwhile, the Shia Genocide is picking up steam worldwide: Shia are now being killed and forced from their homes in Pogroms in Burma, and under Obama in Bahrain, India, Syria, and Saudi Arabia. In addition, Iran is dominated by Shia, so the worldwide Shia Genocide will take care of them too.

And of course, Obama like all Oil puppets wants to raise the price of Oil, and keep us on the Oil Standard. And that keeps Medical Marijuana patients off Hash Oil. Obama can’t allow Legalization of Marijuana because the same plant, Hemp, provides clean fuels that emit no Greenhouse Gases, and in massive amounts, much cheaper than drilling for Oil or Gas. Medical Marijuana and Hash Oil alleviate suffering and prolong lives of patients with AIDS, ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Skin Cancer, and other deadly maladies. If President Obama refuses to remove Marijuana from Schedule One, lots of those patients will die. Oh, yeah, he already did. Lots of them already died.

Those patients didn’t deserve to die over President Obama’s Global Warming Denial, his insane Marijuana policy, or his political ambitions. Neither do the Christians of Syria.

President Obama’s Climate-Science Denial and His Insane Marijuana Policy Spark Refinery Fire

7:26 pm in Uncategorized by normanb

President Obama’s Climate-Science Denial and His Insane Marijuana Policy Spark Refinery Fire — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

Refining Petroleum Oil is a superstitious act. Even if the President “inherited” his superstition and climate-science denial from George W. Bush, even so, when he (three-and-a-half years ago) swore to protect and defend the United States, he promised not to let anti-scientific superstition threaten our very survival, no matter how much the Oil companies are paying. If Oil refineries are still operating tomorrow, it is because we are all victims of corrupt politicians like Barack Obama.

It is time for the President to stop denying the facts of climate science. July, the month that just ended, was the warmest month ever. The last year has been the warmest on record. Drought and fires are everywhere. Burning Fossil Fuels (Coal and Petroleum products [Oil, Gasoline, Natural Gas, Propane, Butane]) causes Global Warming. Specifically, it causes the Greenhouse Effect, first noted in 1826, when Coal burning really got cooking, in the Industrial Revolution. The United States should use science to get Clean Energy, instead of using Bribery to get Fossil Fuels.

There is no Clean Coal or Clean Natural Gas or Clean Nuclear Power. President Obama is lying when he says that these things exist. These lies are killing people. The US does not need to burn Fossil Fuels or exploit Nuclear Energy.

Mining Fossil Fuels makes them more expensive. Speculating on them makes them more expensive. Printing money makes them more expensive. Every spec that is mined or pumped raises the actual price, because is less is left in the ground, so they become more dear.

Cannabis is by far the world’s richest source of Ethanol, a Clean Fuel that causes no Global Warming. Internal combustion engines can operate on Ethanol. Cannabis seeds are the richest source of Biodiesel fuel. All Diesel-fueled vehicles and Oil-burning heaters can run on Hemp seed oil. Power Plants now burning Coal can instead burn Hemp seed Oil, without causing any Global Warming.

Hemp is also the world’s richest source of Gas, but the Biogas derived from Hemp causes no Global Warming, unlike what President Obama calls “Natural” Gas. Hemp-derived Biogas burns without causing climate change, because, like all Hemp fuels, it holds only the Carbon that the living plants absorbed as CO2 from the air: Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral. There are nearly a trillion tons of Carbon in the atmosphere. It is foolish, insane, stupid, irresponsible, and diabolical to add more.

Lund University in Sweden proved Jack Herer’s hypothesis from his self-published classic The Emperor Wears No Clothes: That the US can supply all of its current energy usage and future energy needs by growing Hemp on 6% of our arable land. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/  and  http://mamamojournal.blogspot.com/2010/11/hemp-energy-farming-breakthrough-study.html  http://www.electricemperor.com/eecdrom/

Obama says he want us to be Energy Independent with Natural Gas, but that would kill billions of people with Global Warming, including everyone’s children. If we use clean Carbon Neutral Hemp-derived fuels instead, we can be Energy Independent and stop Global Warming with the very first harvest, two or three months from now. Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant; that is, more weight of Hemp can be produced per acre than of any other plant. Hemp stalks can be planted one inch apart, so that four billion plants can be grown per square mile.

But now the President is ready to start another Oil War. He’s got that superstitious Oil-drilling regime attacking the US Gulf Coast. And now he’s got Oil companies attacking the Alaskan coast too. Dredging our coast [which they do for offshore Oil] is an irresponsible and anti-scientific, criminal act. The US Military should be turning those would-be dredgers back. Why aren’t they protecting the integrity of our coasts? Why aren’t they protecting the American people from these attacks?

And, as an extra added bonus, keeping Marijuana off the market ensures suffering and and early death for millions of Medical Marijuana patients. Why is this Administration intentionally making all these people suffer?

Obama is supporting Onshore Drilling, Offshore Drilling, Nukes, Tar Sands, Shale Oil, Fracking, Pipelines, and Refineries, lots of Refineries: All of these plans are superstitious, nothing less! We don’t need them; they are extremely harmful to Americans and to our country; and they cause Global Warming. But somehow, instead of defending our country and its people, President Obama wants them, the Fossil Fuel frauds, not Marijuana.

Can you spell Bribery?

President Obama’s Hateful Policies Against Sikhs

10:44 am in Uncategorized by normanb

President Obama’s Hateful Policies Against Sikhs — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

I greeted my young Sikh friend. Neither of us spoke of the tragedy. We just spoke of our mutual compassion and respect. He said his father wants him to leave this country … to a place with less bigotry, discrimination, and violence; I guess: South Africa.

During his reign, President Obama’s policies have consistently encouraged Hate Crimes against Sikhs. Below are examples. Most of the world’s Sikhs live in India. Sikhs do not cut their hair or beard. Many wear turbans. The massacre operation was carried out by a Right-wing Terrorist who was US Military Intelligence veteran who was specifically trained to carry out such Psy Ops attacks. He was indoctrinated into anti-religious Hate Groups in the Army.

1. Obama’s FBI refuses to track Hate Crimes against Sikhs even though they comprise the world’s fifth largest spiritual tradition [after Christians, Muslims, Hindus, and Buddhists], and even though the first high-profile 9-11 Revenge Murder was of a Sikh, Balbir Singh Sodhi, on September 15, 2001.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murder_of_Balbir_Singh_Sodhi and http://www.sacbee.com/2012/08/06/4702996/fbi-says-it-had-not-monitored.html

I think Obama’s policy of refusing to track Hate Crimes against 25 million people is a Hate Crime itself. The FBI does track Hate Crimes against other religious groups, just not against Sikhs. The Sikh Coalition, a Civil Rights group, said it has received “thousands of requests for protection.” Reuters news agency released a disgusting screaming propaganda headline tacitly supporting the Obama Administration’s now-deadly discrimination against Sikhs, yesterday asking “Was” … killing Sikhs while meeting at their temple … “a Hate Crime?” http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/06/tagblogsfindlawcom2012-blotter-idUS275046093920120806 and http://www.jsonline.com/news/milwaukee/april-congressional-letter-urged-fbi-to-track-hate-crimes-against-sikhs-4k6ch6g-165074026.html

But what can we expect out of a sleazy outfit like Reuters except propaganda? The New York Times [speaking of sleaze] revealed last month that both it and Reuters regularly Bribe President Obama by giving him editing privilege over wording of their articles. New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters divulged that both his paper and Reuters [and other so-called "free" press] began paying the Bribes after President Obama Blackmailed them, insisting that they would get no access to the President if they did not pay the Bribes. Isn’t it nice having a President from the Chicago Mafia? http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/07/21/ny-times-bribes-obama-and-romney-after-campaigns-demand-it/

2. Sikh Slavery in Obama’s puppet state Bahrain: President Obama, Commander and Chief of the US Armed Forces, could park the Navy’s 5th Fleet anywhere he wants. Anywhere he wants. That’s what “Commander and Chief” means. Let’s assume the reason that he parks it in Bahrain is not Only because he wants Sikhs to be kept as Slaves. Let’s assume that he has some other reason that doesn’t seem as evil. Even so, Slavery is a deal-breaker. We fought a Civil War in this country over Slavery. Here’s a Bahraini ad to buy a 22-year-old female Sikh as a sex slave, and have her delivered to Bahrain from Punjab in India. http://www.punjabimatrimony.com/matrimonials/Country/17/Bahrain.html Abraham Lincoln said “As I would not be a slave, so I would not be a master. This expresses my idea of democracy. Whatever differs from this, to the extent of the difference, is no democracy.” Under President Obama’s “democracy,” or morals, or whatever you want to call it, keeping Sikhs as Slaves is OK.

3. In Obama’s Bahrain, Sikhism is illegal: The Slaves of Bahrain, including the Sikhs, are not allowed to practice their own religion. Under Bahraini Shari’a law, Islam is the only Legal religion. Even the most immoral and repugnant Slave owner recognizes that he is responsible for the well-being of his Slaves. If President Obama is to continue holding those Slaves, he is morally required to provide protection for their Freedom of Religion. So please, President Obama, I am begging you, if you’re absolutely refusing to free the Slaves, then at least, grant them Freedom of Religion!

4. Sikh religious Sacrament draws the Death Penalty in Obama’s Bahrain: Tolerated in India for millennia, Marijuana is a traditional sacrament at Sikh festivals, and among the Sikh Nihang and Bhangi sects; and the Tenth Sikh Guru, one of Sikhism’s founders, Guru Gobind Singh wrote it about as “Bhang” in his poetry, and gave it to followers. In the Indian Hemp Drugs Commission report, the Sikhs’ practices concerning Ganja are reported under the regional heading “Punnjab.” http://www.ukcia.org/research/indian/chapt9.php

5. As South Asians, Sikhs in Bahrain face Genocidal Pogroms at the hands of Obama’s puppet dictator: During both of Obama’s ongoing Pogroms in Bahrain, people are killed with poisonous gas supplied by the Obama Administration – that includes Obama’s South Asian pogroms wherein South Asians are killed or removed. http://www.bikyamasr.com/52331/bahrain-commission-report-details-deadly-pogroms-against-migrant-workers. / and http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/03/02/live-chat-with-political-prisoner-paki-wieland-out-of-torture-jail-as-usbahrain-regime-murders-more-there-with-poison-gas/

6. Obama Classifies the Pakistanis it kills as “Millitants” if the have Facial Hair, even if the Murdered Pakistani is a Child, according to Medea Benjamin’s documentary Drone Warfare: Killing by Remote Control.

7. Obama’s Goons frequently Commit Hate Crimes Against Medical Marijuana patients, many of whom have Long Hair or Facial Hair: These Hate Crimes ordered by the President (raids on Medical Marijuana facilities) have resulted in excruciating suffering and premature deaths for patients with ALS, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, Skin Cancer, and many other maladies. Longtime activist Medical Rights activist Steven DeAngelo, now a Political Prisoner with long hair and facial hair like a Sikh. http://stuffstonerslike.com/2012/07/14/protest-president-obamas-fundraiser-in-oakland-ca-on-july-23/

8. The President has publicly announced that he is allowed to order Murders/Assassinations: The Murders he orders are frequently against people with beards. The high-profile Murders that Obama orders are against non-Christians.

9. Obama ordered the Administration’s investigation of US Right-wing Terrorism closed down because Rush Limbaugh and other Right-wing TV personalities demanded it. In ordering the investigation of Right-wing Terrorism stopped, he also committed a Hate Crime: He further that all Terrorism investigation be against Muslims, according to Democracy Now! This was a Hate Crime against non-Christians who might have hair.

10. The Obama Administration has cracked down on non-mainstream-Christian religious practices: Its FDA carried out a Hate Crime in Lawrence, Kansas, at a shop dealing in religious sacraments named “Sacred Journey.” Anyone can tell by the name of the place that its intentions are religious, and thus protected by the First Amendment. The owner was charged with crimes though he was growing perfectly Legal plants, and supplying Legal sacraments. Even if President Obama has an intense personal hatred on non-mainstream-Christians, he should not be empowered to put that hatred into policy against the minority religions.

11. These Massacres of US citizens happen specifically during time of war. Obama is pushing for lots more war.

12. When the Colorado Massacre happened a Few Days Earlier, Obama’s spokeperson immediately announced that more such incidents would certainly be tolerated: According to Democracy Now!, Press Secretary Jay Carney the President would say nothing and do nothing that would curb gun violence by restricting Right-wing lone nuts from massacring Americans. Carney said they weren’t gonna touch it. Terrible choice. The President’s job is to protect the American people, no matter how much money the Gun Lobby has.

51-State Sticky Greens Stoners-for-Stein Strategy: Magic Map & Ganja Goo Guide to Grow Jack & Elect Jill in November 2012

51-State Sticky Greens Stoners-for-Stein Strategy: Magic Map & Ganja Goo Guide to Grow Jack & Elect Jill in November 2012  — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

***(Jill’s out of Jail and in Georgia! Support her today and this week. We Need You Now! Please help me spread this as much as you can, as fast as you can. We’re running out of time!)***

A [Howard] Zinn koan: “If people could see that Change comes about as a result of millions of tiny acts that seem totally insignificant, well then they wouldn’t hesitate to take those tiny acts.” https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=440807809270872&set=a.194724580545864.46567.107699875915002&type=1&theater

A sip of Margaret Mead: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

(1) A month ago, it seemed there was little chance that the Jill Stein For President campaign would get Matching Funds from the Federal Government’s $3-that-won’t-raise-your-Income-Tax program: No Green Presidential candidate had ever done so before, and to get there, she would need to receive at least $5,000 in donations from at least twenty states: It seemed nearly impossible, because with six days left, she only had nine states completed. At first as an experiment, I looked at a state that had given very little money, and, according to stereotypes, might not want Jill Stein: Texas: So, I wrote to Marijuana reformers in Texas, and they quickly came up with the $5,000! Then I tried New Mexico and Arizona pot heads. Same result. Oregon. Washington. Colorado. Same. Same. Same. No Medical Marijuana Dispensaries in Florida and Virginia/DC and North Carolina, but lots of pot smokers: They all came up with the money fast.

And so Jill Stein just became the first Green Presidential nominee in history to attain the Matching Funds, an amazing feat. So, here I sit, just one person, who has made a difference. Can you imagine how far Jill Stein can go if we get lots and lots of people working like that? Well, I’m here to tell you how we can do just that. If we, the Marijuana voters, work together, we can win this Presidential Election, and win it big! The Green Revolution is going global! Let’s have a party! Let’s have a Green Party! After all “Marijuana Michael” – Michael “Bhang Bong” Phelps – just became the most decorated Medalist in the history of the Olympic Games: A great swimmer with great lungs.

And that case of all the states coming up with the money when it was needed made me remember how one person had also made a big difference two years ago, when Jill Stein was running for Governor of Massachusetts on the Green Rainbow Party ticket: I wrote a Rock Opera and performed it at the University of Massachusetts. Jill Stein opened for me. Afterward, she rose about ten points in the polls versus incumbent Governor Deval Patrick, who actually changed his busy schedule and came to UMass the same day at the same time to try to upstage us. Nothing doing: Our Opera blew his yawn event out of the water, attendance-wise, and enthusiasm-wise. From my FireDogLake.com story at the time: “I called Jill’s Field Director to tell him about her rise in the UMass poll, and he shocked me by telling me that this Rock Opera was her most-attended campaign function. What?! Why didn’t I do ten times as much? Why didn’t ten people do ten times as much? One person with no money writes some poems, and that’s the biggest event? I don’t get it.” Hey out there! Help me out! Don’t make me do it all by myself again this time too! http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/10/22/governor-deval-patrick-politely-declines-to-open-for-my-rock-opera-at-umass-thats-cool-jill-still-will/

Right now, things are desperate, dire, and in doubt. Right now, Today and for the next few, we need to work very hard and fast. Regressive repressive anti-ballot access laws threaten to keep Jill Stein off the ballot in the very places where she would likely be the strongest. Many or most people don’t vote because of the lack of choice, but the opportunity to choose Jill Stein could inspire millions of people to register. Now is our chance to Get Up/Stand Up/Occupy our own Freedom. Just go ahead and do it, because we’re in a big long struggle. As Jamaican dub poet Mutabaruka told us in way back 1986: http://www.ireggae.com/dispoem.htm

“dis poem is long cannot be short”

“dis poem is now ringin talkin irritatin

makin u want to stop it

but dis poem will not stop”

Remember that: Not only can it be done; it must be done; it cannot be stopped. The Marijuana movement was strong enough to get it Medically Legalized in all those 20 states, strong enough to get Legislative propositions up in 20 states, and strong enough to get Marijuana on the ballot in eleven states this year! Our Power is hidden, but it is Gigantic.

Welcome to the Sticky Green Revolution. This is the Green Revolution, the cool change that we’ve dreamed of and waited for all our lives. We’ve got to get back to the Garden. Prohibition Repeal is at hand. Sisters and brothers, we who believe in peace and love and freedom, we protectors of Mother Earth, we Hemp reformers, and Marijuana users and growers and movers, and Cannabusiness people: We are about to take over this country. Human Rights activists, college students, Occupiers, the unnoticed Hippie movement, the Rainbow Family, the Underground Economy, Dead-Phish, and reform-minded voters are in a position to overturn Cannabis Prohibition the very same way our foreparents overthrew Alcohol Prohibition eighty years ago: By electing a Prohibition Repeal President. Then it was Franklin D. Roosevelt. Now, it is Dr. Jill Stein, MD. (For more information about how Prohibition was Repealed and how we can use the same tactics now, dig this: http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/06/25/the-magic-map-says-43-states-want-pot-reform-but-the-clock-says-just-4-days-left-to-repeal-prohibition-with-president-jill-stein/

So, let me tell you what I’m gonna do: I’m going to tell you how we, the Jill Stein-Cannabis Coalition, can win this Presidential Election, and win our freedom. I’ll tell you what we’re looking to do. I’ll tell you how you can help. Please help. After I tell you what we need and where we need it when, then comes the Magic Map, which shows both the Jill Stein situation, and the Marijuana situation in each state. Then a little blurb close up of each region and every state, including statewide issues related to Marijuana and/or Jill Stein and/or the Election. (You all can help me update this state-by-state info and the Magic Map info in the coming weeks.) (To do that, you can network and keep in touch at Sticky Greens homepage. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sticky-Greens-homepage/166998176672767 ) Then will be donation discussion and links. Finally, there will be funny cheap political bumper stickers to get our message out.

Jack Herer was a Hemp and climate activist, and a friend. We both spoke/performed at about 30 different events in tandem, all over the country. Smoked a lot of pot together too. He exposed many lies about Hemp Prohibition and many truths about climate science. Now, a very strong strain of Marijuana is named after him. Jack asserted that the United States can supply all of its current energy usage and future needs simply by growing Hemp for biomass and seed oil on 6% of our arable land. In 2010, Lund University in Sweden proved that Jack was right. If we planted that ’6%’ crop of Hemp today, the United States could be Energy Independent by the November Election. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/06/24/marijuana-voters-join-jill-stein-now-green-revolution-economic-conversion-this-week-only/

Instead of Legalizing Hemp, President Obama wants to supply our country’s energy with Mountain Top Removal Coal, Oil Wars, Fracking chemicals in our drinking water, poisonous sea food from the Gulf of Mexico, a giant leaking Terrorist-targeted Pipeline From Nowhere, and attacking the structural integrity of the Alaskan coast while polluting the Arctic Ocean. And he says that’s because he wants us to be “Energy Independent.” What a conman. What a disgrace. And he’s trying to start another Oil War right now, with Syria and Iran (and Russia).

Jill Stein and her Vice Presidential running mate Cheri Honkala were Political Prisoners yesterday morning, but they’re out of jail now. They were arrested for “Defiant Trespass” at a bank in Philadelphia, for knocking on a door that they knew was locked, trying to help prevent some poor people from being thrown out of their homes. You can tell by the name of the charge that their crimes were Political, rather than actual. Knocking on that door was obviously protected Speech under the US Constitution. First Amendment. Everybody should read the Constitution at least that far. http://my.firedoglake.com/jest/2012/08/01/stein-honkala-arrested-at-a-fannie-mae-sit-in-over-foreclosures/

Here’s The Ballad of the Legend of Jill Stein: http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/08/04/jill-stein-busted-for-defiant-trespass-for-knockin-on-the-door-of-a-giant-bank/

This is a very serious campaign. I’m not trivializing the other things Jill Stein does: A lot of important things, and she has a multifaceted campaign. If you’re not into pot, you might think my writing here is irreverent, or overly reverent. I’ll say some things about the rest of the campaign too. Everything Is Interrelated.

But my mission here now is to unite the nation’s one hundred fifty million Marijuana voters [who need their freedom(!)] with Dr. Stein. http://www.gallup.com/poll/150149/record-high-americans-favor-legalizing-marijuana.aspx So, more than half the country wants Legalized Marijuana, and fully three-quarters want a Third Party! http://politix.topix.com/gary-johnson/581-do-you-want-a-third-party-candidate And a Bloomberg-Washington Post poll a year ago revealed that 52% of Americans recognize that the Democrats and Republicans are the same [and they're both against us(!)]. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2011/10/15/washington-post-bloomberg-presidential-economy-poll-shows-jill-stein-winning-in-a-landslide-the-way-i-read-it/

Though some states haven’t actually allowed distribution of it yet, twenty states’ legislatures have now passed Medical Marijuana laws [though New Hampshire's Governor vetoed it], states with Electoral Votes totaling 187. Another six states with 68 more Electoral Votes are voting on Marijuana issues this November. That’s 255. Florida and New York each has 29 votes, and Texas has 38. If Dr. Stein carries any of those three, along with the Marijuana industry, she has it! I reiterate: She needs just the Medical Marijuana states, the states voting on Marijuana the same day as the Presidential Election, and one more state! And that final state has to have at least 15 Electoral Votes, so that one state must be either Texas, Florida, New York, Pennsylvania, Georgia, or North Carolina. But there are many other possible winning scenarios for her.

Marijuana is on the ballot this November in ten states all told, with 112 total Electoral Votes. One of those states is Jill Stein’s home state of Massachusetts, where Mitt Romney was Governor. Another is President Obama’s home state of Illinois. In every state with Marijuana on the ballot, Marijuana smokers will be energized to vote. We have the incentive: We can gain our freedom on Election Day 2012 by Legalizing Marijuana and Electing Jill Stein President: The President can unilaterally order the Rescheduling of Marijuana – so that it is no longer “Schedule One.” That makes it Legal as medicine. He could do that today. He could have done it three-and-a-half years ago. I wonder who paid him not to do it.

After President Jill Stein lifts the ban on pot, Dispensaries in California, Colorado, and others with MMJ might legally be able to sell and ship it to other states.

California “Conservatives” pushed back against pot in two local elections this year, but other Californians make money off Legal Medical Marijuana. It’s a half-a-trillion-dollar industry. That’s actually more than enough to fund this entire Jill Stein For President campaign. (By the way, do you know what California “Conservatives” wanted in their “anti-pot” campaign? They wanted MMJ to be taxed and regulated. Like wine.) (Some of us want it Legal like tomatoes.)

According to the Center for Responsive Politics, corporations have already given a billion dollars to the Obama/Romney campaign. Jill Stein recently said that she intends to run her entire campaign on only a million dollars. That’s just a drop in the bucket for the Marijuana economy. Let’s give that to her right away; do it now; do what’s right. She simply needs a group in each state – let’s call it a Pound-O’Pot Group of Stoner Donors – in every state we need the same amount of people who would come together to smoke a pound of pot – twenty people – we need each of them to give $250. Here in Massachusetts, that $250 is a lot less than the price of an ounce of Marijuana. Such a deal! So, twenty people in each state could just forgo their next bag of pot, send that money to Jill Stein for President, and that’s her million dollars! (That’s it; that’s all she needs, with the Matching Funds, and with what she’s already got plus what’s coming, plus their Matching Funds; she’ll have it all when her 20 Stoner Donors from each state make that donation: Jill Stein gets her million dollars. If you want to protect the Dispensaries and the Medical Marijuana industry, if you want to stop Global Warming, if you use Cannabis, and/or if you want it Legal, please join us now. http://www.jillstein.org/funding

(16) The point is: If Jill Stein carries all ten states with Marijuana on the ballot, and California, that’s 167 Electoral Votes. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Jill Stein’s home state, with eleven Electoral Votes, is one of those states with Legalizing pot on the docket. The rest of New England has a very strong Marijuana movement, and an additional 22 Electoral Votes. My premise is this: Jill Stein can carry all those states, the ones with pot on the ballot, and the New England states that she calls home. But the big bull of the woods is California. That’s 169 EVs, so far. And Florida can possibly go to Stein too. More about that below. If she gets Florida with those voting on pot, and she gets New England, then she’ll be at 218. It takes 270 to win. She’s very popular – and that popularity is growing fast – in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona, with another 54 Electoral Votes between them. That’s 272. Bingo!

Here’s something new on Jill Stein from McClatchy news service in a Texas newspaper. http://www.star-telegram.com/2012/08/01/4149133/green-partys-jill-stein-looks.html

But she could actually get a lot more than just those 272 Electoral Votes: Eight other states, with a total of 42 Electoral Votes, already have Medical Marijuana laws, so lots of people in those states have extreme incentive to defend their respective Marijuana delivery systems by electing Jill Stein; perhaps in hopes that their state may become home to the next trillion-dollar pot industry bonanza, like California and Colorado, who are now affecting the economy of the entire world with their MMJ; or, at least, they could Free The People! That 42 EVs added to the 262 makes 314, a winning total! But it gets even better than that: Another Sixteen (16) states have Marijuana propositions before their legislatures this year, sixteen states with Electoral Votes totaling 170. In fact, only seven states are not trying to Legalize Marijuana this year: Georgia, Louisiana, Nebraska, Virginia, Minnesota, Wyoming, and Mitt Romney’s home state Utah. The total Electoral Vote of those states not currently trying to Legalize Marijuana is just 67.

The President and Romney will be doing and saying lots of outrageous and awful things every day. It is our job to point out to the public just how terrible they are. We are the media now, and if thousands of us publish stories of their bumbling Fascist injustices, we can raise the consciousness of the nation. We have never needed honesty and action on Global Warming more than we need it now, but both Obromneys will be ignoring and denying climate science, by calling for Pipelines and Fracking, and onshore and offshore Oil drilling, and Coal and Nuclear Power. They’ll be warmongering. Remember, every time they threaten to bomb Iran’s Nukes, they are also threatening to simultaneously Dirty Bomb all the American troops stationed in Afghanistan! Obama’s Defense Secretary Panetta threatened to do it again yesterday. That’s superstitious. It’s all for Oil. It’s climate holocaust denial.

Both Barack Bushbama and Mitt Obromney will be disrespecting Human Rights and workers’ rights and women’s right. Watch them, and call them out on it. Nobody likes them anyway. Both of them are very very Very weak candidates. Face it: Everybody in the country knows they’re both dishonest greedy liars.

Speaking of that: Be prepared for false, lying polls saying that  we don’t have a chance. We need to take the bullshit by the horns! Be ready when and if they shut down Facebook and the greater internet. We’ve got to overturn the dominant paradigm before they know what hit them. Their Oil War Economy is going down!  OWE – that debt-based dinosaur economy, focused on destructive extraction – is on its way out, to be replaced by a vibrant new Hemp-based Clean-Energy Tree-Of-Life economy where full employment and home ownership are the norm. We’ll have Universal Health Care and debt-free kindergarten-to-college education for all! Do you want your freedom or not? Now is the time to Get Up, Stand Up, Occupy your Rights! Get up and take it. C’mon. Let’s do this.

Most of us reporters who investigate politicians, and their apparent Bribes from corporations and the wealthy, really respect the Center For Responsive Politics and its opensecrets.org, an invaluable financial research tool. Beginning at 29:20 in the following video, CRP Executive Director Sheila Krumholz reveals that “the two Parties” will receive about $18 million for their Conventions. But I want to draw your attention to the segment beginning at 21:20, wherein she talks about President Obama crushing the Matching Funds system. Obama was the first Major Party nominee to refuse Matching Funds: He did that in order to take much more money, hidden and soft. Even Obama’s ethically challenged Republican opponent John McCain said it was dishonest for Obama to turn the Matching Funds down. Krumholz goes on to say in the segment that Obama, through that dishonest move four years ago, has single-handedly dismantled the entire Matching Funds system. She says Matching Funds is “dead,” but we know that’s not true, because Jill Stein just got them. Furthermore, one person cannot be allowed to unilaterally make a decision that destroys Matching Funds for less-connected candidates, while taking $18 million from the Government himself for a giant TV commercial called a Convention. (The Conventions are very late this year, in September, to prevent college students from protesting them.) Obviously, if the Green Party can’t afford to sue the Republicrats for making off with that eighteen mil, somebody sure should. http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/JShe

(22) Jill Stein is in Georgia this morning. She’ll be on the steps of the State Capitol in Atlanta today.  http://www.jillstein.org/jill_s_trip_to_georgia  Now we are facing an uphill battle, trying to get Jill on the ballot in as many states as possible, and some of them really make the ballot-access barrier a nightmare. We need to make this a 51-state race. Let’s stress that it’s a nationwide movement. We don’t know how the Electoral Vote is going to fall. We’ll need every state we can get. In the Southern States, we’ll need the Freedom Riders of 1961 to ride again. In some states, suspicious intelligence-community-like happenings are tripping up the Green Party. Georgia needs more than 50,000 signatures to get Jill on the ballot, and North Carolina – where Elizabeth Warren and Barack Obama will clasp hands onstage in Bank Of America Stadium at the so-called “Democratic” Convention – requires 80,000. Alabama would want 25,000 to let the Green Party on the ballot, but for only 5,000 signatures, Jill Stein can run as an Independent, provided she gets at least 400 signatures from every single county in Alabama. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/07/19/mlk-would-be-ashamed-georgia-need-voters-rights-freedom-riders-again-this-time-for-ganja-jill-stein-kwabena-nkromo/

(23) The Georgia Green Party is arranging host families for the Freedom Riders. Hopefully, those Freedom Riders will base in Georgia, then also spread out to Alabama and North Carolina, to try to get them on the ballot too. In Virginia, home of the CIA, they need 10,000 signatures, probably have about half of that, but a group called the “Independent Greens” (which claims to also support Jill Stein) claims to have another 3,000 signatures that they want to sell to the Green Party. I also got a call from Alaska, from someone saying that for $12,000 he could hire the right signature gatherers to get her on the ballot in Alaska. But he also said that he was a former Green who has evolved. http://www.southernstudies.org/2012/07/will-third-parties-make-a-difference-in-november.html and http://www.independentpoliticalreport.com/2012/07/georgia-ballot-access-lawsuit-update/

(24) Alaska had more Greens percentage-wise than any other state, and the Democratic Party has largely failed there. A judge once ruled there that growing Marijuana is Legal according to Alaska’s Constitution, lots of nature lovers, Native Americans, Native Alaskans. Lots of destruction by Oil. This is so insane and superstitious. We are in a fragile web of life. We’ve already raised the temperature. Now the President and Congress are cooperating with what amounts to a Military attack on the integrity of Alaska’s coastline, just like this and previous Traitor Presidents allowed attacks on the integrity of the Gulf coast, resulting in disastrous flooding, but hey, they got lots of Oil. With Hemp we can be Energy Independent right away without any drilling or dredging. And Alaska would benefit more than anyone.

(25) Wisconsin was home Weedstock, an annual festival where thousands of dedicated Cannabis enthusiasts gathered to imbibe and organize: I performed there a few times it was conducted by my Yippie brother Ben Masel, the long-haired activist lawyer and sometime political candidate (who recently passed). We need the Friends of Ben and the legacy of Ben Masel to get up and pick up the Green Party in Wisconsin. Wisconsin prime brain-washing territory. MSNBC’s The Ed Show‘s Ed Schultz tells people daily that hard workers like those in Wisconsin need a strong labor President. The fallacy of Schultz’ argument is that he then points to Obama, who continues to support Slavery in Bahrain. As long as he supports Slavery, he’s anti-labor. Anybody should be able to see that. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2011/02/18/our-international-shame-the-5th-fleet-quit-disgracing-the-us-and-get-the-hell-out/

(26) Minnesota and Wisconsin both grow lots of pot, and have Native American communities. Activist and former Green VP nominee Winona LaDuke is from there, and so is Cannabis reformer former Governor Jesse Ventura who ran on the Reform Party ticket. Prairie Home Companion‘s Garrison Keillor celebrates the culture there of Norwegian Americans [I'm one] and live entertainment, radio plays and such. Keillor sometimes pitches fake ads, and one of those products he’s ‘selling’ is “Rainbow Motor Oil, from the Rainbow Family of fine automotive products!” He’s talking to us, to people like me who’ve told him about the Rainbow Family in letters. Lots of Rainbows in Minnesota, especially since that great national Rainbow Gathering up in the Boundary Waters July 4, 1990. Come on out, Family, remember: Bob Marley said “I am a Rainbow too.” He also said “Get Up Stand Up.”

(27) Jill Stein is listed as a Write-In candidate in Missouri, Indiana, Nevada, and North Carolina. Oklahoma and Nevada haven’t even allowed the start of petitioning yet – part of rigging the Election. Yes, they’re rigging it, but we’re tearing apart that rigging if we can. Because ours is the only reasonable stand on so many issues. If we get the word out, these are our natural constituents and allies who are already located in every single state: Protectors of the planet; the poor, college students, Native Americans, Latinos and immigrants; discriminated-against racial, religious, sexual, cultural, and linguistic groups; Human Rights activists of all issues, and the already intricate nationwide state-to-state networkings of Occupy Wall Street, Deadheads, Phish fans, the Rainbow Family, activists, the Medical Marijuana industry, and of course the hundred million or so brave and dedicated outlaw users, growers, vendors, and deliverers: They deserve our respect and protection. http://www.gp.org/2012/ballot-access.html and http://www.jillstein.org/ballot

(28) In America’s Heartland, the Great Plains, and the Northern Rockies, the Democratic Party hasn’t done well at all and in some places is an utter failure. They’ve never even had a credible opposition Party. Maybe it can be us. If there’s no Green Party in your state, come to the Sticky Greens homepage to network, to organize, to meet, to plan. Meanwhile, they smoke lots of pot, have a Rainbow presence, college students, activists, no opposition Party, and Marijuana is the top money crop in every one of these states. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sticky-Greens-homepage/166998176672767?ref=hl

(29) If Cannabis voters hit the campaign hard and fast for the next two days, we can – that is, we need to try to get Jill Stein on the ballot, in especially the pot states. We need volunteers in Iowa to gather signatures: To sign or to help gather them, call 319-331-9616. Please hurry! There are lots of farmers in Iowa, who will benefit greatly when they are finally again legally able to grow Hemp for the nation’s energy needs. There are lots of pot growers already in Iowa and Indiana, and lots of Cannabis consumers there, and lots and lots of Deadheads. But there’s a repressive Government in Indiana trying to hold down dissenting voices. Iowa and Indiana Marijuana industries: Come out and help us Legalize! In Indiana you can download the petition here. http://ingp.info/ballot-access Please, lots of you in Indiana, print out Jill Stein ballot Petitions at libraries and get Indiana voters who aren’t on internet to sign.

(30) The Kansas City, Missouri, Greens meet in a local bookstore. but there’s not much Green Party presence in Missouri; though I know there is a strong Marijuana movement there, with a proposition in the legislature this year and a measure on the ballot in Springfield, Missouri, this fall. The Marijuana voters and the freedom voters and the Civil Rights voters should be out in force to support Jill Stein, if we can reach them to tell them about her. Hell no! We won’t Jim Crow! This Racist Drug War’s got to go!

To get a hold of get-on-the-ballot Petitions, You can sometimes find local Green groups through the national Green Party of the United States site http://www.gp.org/states.php, or through Wikipedia 2http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Party_%28United_States%29#State_parties or Facebook. Sometimes information is outdated. Keep looking. You might get info through the national campaign, http://www.jillstein.org/ Sometimes you can find sympathetic organizations on the following list, but it’s severely outdated, and many of the groups claim to be “Progressive,” but still support Obama. The trouble with that is “Progressive” is Left-wing, and Obama is the far-far-Right: Obama publicly claims that he is allowed to order Murders. (Even Reagan at the height of his hubris and Nixon at the height of his insanity didn’t go that far Right!) http://www.irregularnews.com/states/index.htmlYou can all network on Sticky Greens homepage on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sticky-Greens-homepage/166998176672767

(32) The Northwest needs some Tree Sitters quick! Washington state’s Legal Marijuana industry made it one of the states that’s given the most to the Jill Stein campaign. Please, if you are in Washington and in the industry, get the Petition and get your contacts to sign it as quickly as possible. People in the Washington and Oregon Marijuana movements can also help out by going into Idaho and Montana, to help spur the Medical Marijuana people there into joining our revolution and getting Jill Stein on the ballot. It looks like we missed getting her on Montana, which we should have had by the end of August 1. That means we need the Medical Marijuana people and the freedom-loving people and the environmental voices of Montana to campaign hard and long. Let people know. And where it seems really really difficult is Nevada: Medical Marijuana emergency in Nevada: There is no Petition yet to get Jill Stein on the ballot: It is up to the MediJuana industry in Nevada (Jill may end up being a Write-in candidate there: Don’t let us down!)

(33) North Dakota wants to get its Medical Marijuana up and running, there’s a ballot question: There’s enthusiasm: Jill Stein can tap into that. South Dakota has a very strong Hemp movement at Pine Ridge Reservation where Indians are still suppressed.

(34) New Hampshire needs lots of people signing and circulating Petitions. Hurry! Every day at 4:20 pm people smoke Marijuana in Civil Disobedience near many City Halls, Court Houses, and Cop Shops in New Hampshire. Bring registration forms, register these people, and get them to sign the Petition to get Jill on the ballot. Call 207-841-6595 right away if you can help. Connecticut also needs help right away. See the blurb below. I want to do a consciousness-raising emissary tour to the Cannabis communities and alternative political groups in New England. More about that below. The New Hampshire Legislature Legalized Medical Marijuana, and the Governor vetoed it: The people of New Hampshire are already on our side. The people of New Hampshire want Medical Marijuana. The Obama Administration severely unjustly made a Political Prisoner out of a nurse there over saving lives with MMJ. This is now known colloquially Obama’s Naziesque Drug Policy (ONDP). There is a strong Civil Disobedience movement in New Hampshire (“Live Free or Die”), and people there gather in public downtown to smoke Marijuana and taunt the police. Try to reach any of that if you can.

(35) Maine: Maine has a very strong Medical Marijuana movement, and a strong [Industrial] Hemp movement, and a strong Legalization movement. Get in touch with as many of them as you can, by sending them this article, to their Facebook page or website. After enjoying some of the first Legal Medijuana in California in 1995, I enthusedly told High Times editor Steve Hager how cool I found it, and he said “You should see Maine.” That’s what I’m sayin’.

(36) Rhode Island: Rhode Island Legalized Medical Marijuana, but the Obama Administration ruthlessly cracks down on it there. Contact the Medijuana facilities, providers, groups, and organizations about it, and ask them to contact their patients fast!

(37) Vermont: Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) is a Socialist. Vermont has very active Socialist Parties, who can be approached on this – Jill Stein once told me that Socialism doesn’t conflict with her agenda. Vermont also has very active pro-Marijuana Parties, the members of which can be approached, somehow. Northern Vermont, home to the amazingly brilliant Revolutionary Communist Bread and Puppet Circus of giant puppet theatre, is a place where Leftist radicals predominate. They should vote for Stein. (Where else they gonna go?) But our ace in the hole in Vermont is Phish, the non-commercial band that is the world’s highest paid entertainment act – highest paid because their loyal fans want to see them as much as possible. Vermont, especially the Burlington area, is full of Phish fans, Deadheads, drum circles, hippies, and jam bands. They smoke pot, all of ‘em. Help me reach them, we’re running out of time. I think that the Vermont’s Progressive Party, Socialist Liberation Party, and Marijuana Party, I think that you all should consider yourselves the Vermont delegation of the Greens. All three Parties are Socialist. Jill Stein evoked Socialism in her acceptance speech, and so did many other speakers at last month’s Green Party Convention. Jill thanked our Socialist forerunners in her speech.

(38) Let’s get Kentucky on the ballot. I once joined the Green Democrats of Kentucky: When I was in Kentucky nearly 20 years ago, Jack Herer and I both worked for the Democratic Gubernatorial campaign of Gatewood Galbraith, a Global Warming and Hemp activist who proved part of Jack’s Clean-Energy hypothesis, by driving all over Kentucky in his normal showroom Mercedes Benz on Clean Fuel that he squeezed out of Hemp seeds, without causing any Global Warming. The proof is in the pudding: If Gatewood can press his own seeds and drive without emitting Greenhouse Gases, then so could I. So could you. The US could have stopped emitting them 20 years ago, back when Gatewood and Jack and I were teaching about it on that Gubernatorial campaign. Willie Nelson was with Gatewood’s campaign then too. He and Gatewood appeared on the cover of High Times magazine together. Rest In Peace, Gatewood and Jack. Party on, dudes. And now Kentucky’s Governor Rand Paul favors Liberalizing enforcement against pot. Good, because it’s growing on every piece of property in Kentucky!

(39) Throughout all of the Eastern Mountain states Coal mining devastates health, climate, mountaintops, labor, communities, politics. RAMPS – Radical Action for Mountain People’s Survival – is trying to help. This is an example of whom we must coalition with, people like RAMPS, Greenpeace, Earth First!, the Ruckus Society: Direct action environmentalists.

The Stein campaign says costs for gathering signatures average around $6,000 per state. If you really want to make that happen yourself, you’re allowed to give the campaign up to $2,500 (though only the first $250 qualifies for the Matching Funds. https://jillstein.nationbuilder.com/donate Most people, even within the Stein campaign, don’t realize that the Stein camp will be able to continue claiming Matching Funds until the Republicrat Conventions end around September 6 or 7.

Many independent voters like Jill Stein. Today I got an excited email about her from a very prominent Socialist. Yesterday, a confirmed Anarchist who hasn’t voted in ten years joined us. The day before that, it was two people who had never voted, until this time! I’ve heard from lots of supporters who are Libertarians, and some Ron Paul partisans. Also an Ayn Rand fan and a Boston Tea Party member, and some from the Pirate Party. And of course, lots of dissatisfied disaffected disenchanted disenfranchised Democrats. There’ll be lots more of ‘em coming. We’ll need them. We’ll even take Republicans who’ve given up on the Right. If there are any Socialists or Communists out there, this is your chance to join a revolution.

If you’re a musician, you can record a Willie Nelson song in support of Legalizing Jack and Electing Jill. The song is called “A Peaceful Solution.” If you record it, Willie Nelson’s site may host it on the web. Learn it here: You can listen to the song, and a Marijuana Legalization speech from Jill Stein. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/07/14/end-prohibition-now-jill-stein-willie-nelson-want-a-peaceful-solution

The far Right has controlled of this country for far too long. If you steer your car too far to the Right, it hits the edge of the road: What’s needed at this point, then, is to veer Left, because: Steering a “constant, steady, even-handed approach” takes us off the road and into the ditch; and then, making a sharp Right turn, as President Obama has done, well that flips the car and totals it. Now we’ve got four Right-leaning corporate-funded Koch Brothers-supported candidates against Jill Stein. Four Koch candidates who’ll allow environmental destruction by continuing to burn Oil and profit the Koch brothers. Four against Jill: They are: Obama, Romney, Ron Paul, and Gary Johnson: The libertarianism of Paul and Johnson allows burning Oil for profit – end of story. These four unfortunately stand ready to let the Global Warming Holocaust continue.

The Obromney Team gets lots of help from Big Oil, and they return the favor: By burning Oil, Natural Gas, and Coal for these three-and-a-half years instead of immediately switching to Clean Fuel, President Obama made fossil Fuel companies even filthier rich, but Obama has pushed world climate at the breaking point with these insane tactics, when he could have pushed Legalizing Hemp instead, which would give our country Energy Independent in about three months. Obama says that he wants Fracking (which poisons children’s drinking water) so that we can be Energy Independent, but using Hemp, we’d have a lot more “Natural Gas” a lot quicker, without causing any Global Warming, and without destructive Pipelines, and without poisoning any children. Barack Fracking Obromney is not your friend. (Of course, Obama’s position on Fracking greatly profits the Koch brothers [with much of their money in Dioxin-laden wood-pulp (non-Hemp) paper].)

Seek out our natural allies in every state: Native Americans, Native Alaskans, Native Hawai’ians; racial, ethnic, minority, and religious groups that are discriminated against; students, the Occupy Movement, the peace movement, Marijuana voters, teachers, Gays; Women; workers; environmentalists, anti-Nuke activists, Journalists (honest ones), people who want peace and freedom and justice. Future articles here will have pointers on how to talk to specific voter groups.

The Marijuana industry is in control of the US Presidential Election. If Green Party Presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein, MD, carries the Medical Marijuana states, and the states voting on Marijuana this fall, and One More State, then she’ll be President. I iterate: If Jill Stein takes the states with proven Marijuana constituencies, and one more state, then, she wins! I say Go Ganja Jill!

You may have to squint your eyes, or squint your consciousness a little to interpret the map below. It shows in red the states that are polling for Romney, and in blue the states leaning toward Obama. If neither of the corporate stooges consistently leads in a state’s polls, I give that state to Stein and mark it green. Marijuana-friendly situations are marked in green, and so are completed Petitions to get Jill on the ballot. Look at all that green! A guide to reading this map is highlighted below in green. Here’s a link to a map at the Jill Stein for President site, which shows ballot access progress. http://www.jillstein.org/ballot

How to Read this Map

A. Get so stoned that it looks like a map. See Florida in the lower right (Southeast) corner? All 50 states and the District of Columbia are situated approximately where they should be. Now look at the upper left (Northwest) corner. See Alaska? See how loop in the word loophole looks like the Aleutian Islands? See how the rest of that word looks like the Alaska Panhandle? No? Youi’d better smoke a little more smoke. Find your state on the map. Compare it to other states.

B. The caption for each state shows the state’s Presidential polling, states in which Jill Stein is on the ballot, and it shows the Marijuana legal situation in the state.

Line 1: Two-letter state abbreviation, followed in parentheses by the number of Electoral Votes the state is allotted.

Line 2: Tells who is consistently leading in Presidential polls in the state. If it has no consistent leader, I call it for Stein.

Line 3:Tells if Jill Stein’s petitioning is “done,” shown in green, or in progress, shown almost green, or not happening yet, show in purple.

Line 4: Tells ifthe state has Medical Marijuana [mmj]; if the state’s Medi-Juana is crucial to our national economy [mmj(!)]; and if the state had/has a Marijuana Proposition this year [prop].

Line 5: Tells if Marijuana is on the ballot in the state this year [ballot]; if outlaw Marijuana Smokeasies currently operate in the state [smokeasy]; if state citizens frequently use Civil Disobedience pot smoking to intimidate police [CD]; if the state has a strong Industrial Hemp movement [hemp]; if the state has Willie Nelson helping out its (Industrial) Hemp movement [Willie]; and if the state has a hidden loophole through which Marijuana is already more legal than it is in other states [loophole]. (Some stuff may spill over into other Lines.)

Loopholes: (1) In Florida, prescription Marijuana is already legal. Very few people get it. Elvy Musikka, a good friend of mine who has severe Glaucoma, is one of the few patients in this country getting it prescribed. Unfortunately, it is the worst pot you can imagine: The males and females aren’t separated; it’s harvested by lawnmower; if she gets a bud, it’s by accident; it’s warehoused for years so that by the time she gets it, she has to re-humidify it or it won’t even smoke. (2) In Ohio, if you possess less than 100 grams, you cannot even be ticketed. Nearly everyone in Ohio has under 100 grams. (3) Here in Massachusetts, if caught with Marijuana, the culprit doesn’t have to give the police his or her real name, and doesn’t have to pay the fine. Another Massachusetts Loophole: If the person caught with Marijuana is using it medicinally for Asthma, AIDS, or Cancer, then the charges must be dropped. (4) Alaska’s Supreme Court ruled Marijuana legal there. (~5) Wisconsin’s Constitution provides that possession of Marijuana on private property is not a crime unless and until someone files a complaint. (Wisconsin is not marked as a full Loophole on the map.)

51-State Strategy

We first need to get Jill Stein on the ballot in many states. Everywhere we need to register people to vote. Get some forms and keep them with you. Below are examples of how to help our cause in each state, and who to reach out to there. We need to get her money to run her campaign. Not much, just a little. I’ve estimated how many Stoner Donors it takes in each state, if it’s just us coming up with the money, assuming that each Stoner Donor gives $250 to Jill Stein instead of buying that next bag of boo. The entry for each state tells how many Electoral Votes the state has (EV) and how many Stoner Donors (SDs) it takes to pull your state’s weight for this election

(538 Electoral Votes: 270 Needed to Win. 
States with Marijuana on the Ballot: 12, with 167 Electoral Votes. (The two California communities voting to restrict Medical Marijuana Dispensaries won this year – Marijuana will not be on the ballot in California in November. In Missouri, only Springfield is voting on it.) Current Medical Marijuana States: 19, with 176 Electoral Votes (only 170, not including Iowa). (Iowa’s Board of Pharmacy recommended Legalization, but its cowardly Legislature hasn’t done its duty yet.) States with Marijuana Propositions this year: 11, with 131 Electoral Votes. States with Smokeasies or other Civil Disobedient public pot smoking, or Loopholes allowing Legal Marijuana use, or strong Hemp movements, or a strong Socialist movement, or Willie Nelson: 11, with 142 Electoral Votes. States with Mighty Marijuana Movements This Year: 43 & DC: 471 Electoral Votes!)

Florida & Texas (On the Ballot in Both States, 67 Electoral Votes; 2 made Matching Funds by July 1)

Oil is ruining Florida and Texas coasts and tourism and seafood and sea life. And Obama promises more. But the people haven’t forgotten.


Florida 29-EV 43-SDs ($10,838.95); Floridians are disgusted with both major Parties; Florida has more pot smokers, dealers, and smugglers than any other state, and all those people will be richer and better off with Jill Stein and Legal Marijuana. Also, being the first Jewish Presidential candidate in history might help Jill with some voters in Florida; See paragraphs 1, 16. (See also Community Radio Programming, below.)

Eastern Seaboard (On the Ballot in 3 of 7 States, 92 Electoral Votes; 6 made Matching Funds by July 1)

Delaware 3-EV 22-SDs ($5,650); home of pot opponent DuPont and the worst and most dishonest slate of politicians the world has ever known, starting with Vice President Joe Biden and his son. Treating the non-existent condition Marijuana addiction is an industry there; so is Medical Marijuana; those two factors could bring us good luck and demographic, and they must be tired of crooks by now.

Mississippi 6-EV 20-SD ($5,020); see Louisiana entry below.


Louisiana 8-EV 20-SDs ($5,078); devastated by the flood and its response: Now Obama is going all out with more Oil drilling and spilling. The seafood is already poisoned, like the air and the water. Horrible police. We can help the people of the Gulf states get their freedom.

Great Plains (On the Ballot in Zero of 5 States – 1 is Petitioning, 24 Electoral Votes; None made Matching Funds by July 1)

The Obama Administration treats the people of the America’s Heartland as if they’re complete buffoons: Propaganda tells them that Fracking and the Pipeline From Nowhere will help their economy. If President Obama had any spine, he’d stand up against it, instead, he plays along, gets hand-picked audiences who applaud every time that he brags about being the “Fracking President” or “George W. Obama on climate issues” or poisoning all the world’s children with his Fracking Pipeline of Bull. The Democratic Party never really made it in this part of the country; its lands need protectors; big Hemp growing region. http://blackagendareport.com/content/should-we-really-re-elect-fracking-president

South Dakota 3-EV 20-SDs ($5,010); Sioux natives of the Pine Ridge Reservation grew Hemp to make Hempcrete bricks. The Hempcrete idea has also caught on in North Dakota. The Government of course doesn’t allow them to make bricks out of Hemp, although, if everyone did it, That Would Actually Reduce Or Could Even Cure Global Warming! That removes Carbon from our atmosphere. http://www.gp.org/states/sdakota.shtml See paragraph 33.

Northern Rockies (On the Ballot in Zero of 3 States, 10 Electoral Votes; None made Matching Funds by July 1)

The Democratic Party never really made it in this part of the country; its lands need protectors; big pot-growing region.


Wyoming 3-EV 20-SDs ($5,000); Fantastic wildlife in beautiful Wyoming; https://www.facebook.com/pages/Green-Party-of-Wyoming/142288685809156 We need people from Boulder area of Colorado to do outreach to the college students of Laramie, which is where our strength will lie in this state. Wyoming is dominated by Fossil Fuels. In the early 1920s, when the President’s Interior Secretary Albert Fall took a Bribe from Sinclair Oil for private-profit access to what should be public: Our natural resources. When news of the Tea Pot Dome scandal broke, President Harding mysteriously died, killed by Oil interests everyone assumed, even encyclopedias of the 1920s and -30s. But today’s encyclopedias and almanacs don’t mention how suspicious it was. Five days after Fall was convicted, Oil speculators, stock traders, and bankers plunged us into the Great Depression on Black Tuesday, October 29, 1929. http://www.laramiecountyclerk.com/elections.aspx and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wyoming#Mineral_production See paragraph 32.

Montana 3-EV 20-SDs ($5,075); Montanans launched a recall of Senators who approved NDAA Military Detention; but unfortunately we will probably not be on the ballot in Montana – it’s past the deadline; we need the Medical Marijuana industry there to stand up: You Legalized it statewide, but Obama is hatefully harassing the patients; we need Marijuana activists from Washington and Oregon to come over and help spread the word. http://www.mtgreens.org/ See paragraph 32.


Idaho 4-EV 21-SDs ($5,265); Lots of Native Americans. A Marijuana proposition, but you need the right President, such laws are hard to implement; we need Marijuana activists from Washington and Oregon to come over and help spread the word. http://www.idahogreenparty.org/ 208-344-6804

The people of every state want the Clean Energy that a Hemp economy will bring. We all want to end Global Warming. We all want there to be millions of good jobs available, as we can get through Jill Stein’s Green New Deal. We all want peace and freedom and Human Rights, not just for ourselves, but for our sisters and brothers around the globe, and for future generations. We can’t go ahead and destroy it just because somebody gave the President a bunch of money. The people of every state want to Legalize pot. The people of every state want to end Prohibition.

Here’s how you can help:
1. Tell people about Jill Stein and ending Prohibition and ending Global Warming and Oil Wars.
2. Register people to vote and/or encourage lots of people to register: The local town hall or courthouse has forms. It’s good to keep some handy.
3. Sign the Petition to get Jill on the ballot in your state, if she isn’t already on it there. (There are also petitions one may sign to get her into the debates with Obama and Romney. http://letjilldebate.blogspot.com/2012/07/petition-data-entry-form.html )(There’s also one to get her on the Daily Showhttp://www.change.org/petitions/the-daily-show-have-green-party-presidential-candidate-jill-stein-on-as-a-guest )( Along the same vein, there’s a Facebook effort to get a Green candidate on Real Time with Bill Maher.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/173407432675526/  )
4. Join your local Green Party. http://localgreenparty.org/ If there isn’t one, start a local Sticky Greens chapter. You can focalize it at the Sticky Greens homepage. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sticky-Greens-homepage/166998176672767
5. Donate to the campaign. It is essential that somebody do this. The Obromneys have zillions. We just need a few people in each state to donate to Jill Stein for President. Here are three different ways to donate money:
~a. In every state, we need grassroots citizens to form Pound O’Pot Stoner Donor groups of twenty, as discussed above, wherein each Stoner Donor gives or gathers at least $250 to the campaign. https://jillstein.nationbuilder.com/donate
~b. Freedom Riders are needed to the Deep South, Georgia, Alabama, and North Carolina. We need people to make the ride, people in Georgia or Alabama or NC to house them, and people to donate to the effort. http://www.georgiagreenparty.org/
~c. Donate directly to the Sticky Greens effort to elect Jill Stein President in 2012: We just need a tiny amount compared to the rest of the campaign, but we have the connections and expertise to carry out a few essential pieces:
~~~I. $900 to Tampa Community Radio WMNF 88.5 FM (“As Far Left As You Can Go, and Still Be On the Radio”) programming: We have pledged a donation of $900: The premium gift that we’ll receive in appreciation for that donation is hosting three of the most popular shows on the station: We’ll host 7 hours of Jill Stein programming (including recordings of her, live talk and performance, recorded music, and if we’re lucky, the candidate herself will be live on the show). This is a four-and-a-half million person radio market, and a far-Leftist radio station of committed activists, in the center of Florida, the state with the third-most electoral votes. We will host three of the most popular shows on this station, shows which already have dedicated followings of lots of activists. 7 hours of programming, most popular shows on a Left-leaning Community station, which is one of the most successful Community Radio stations on the planet, and one of the hippest. As far as I know, it’s the best radio station anywhere. Its listeners are our natural allies and Jill Stein’s logical constituents. We can and we must spur thousands of these activists to blanket Florida for us. We can win Florida, and if we do this programming, it could help us win Vermont and California too. (If we have a chance to host more programs [as premiums] at WMNF, aside from these three, we will try to do that too. Thanks to WMNF consciousness raising, Tampa recently elected both a Green and a Socialist.)
~~~II.  $500 to present a Jill Stein program at the Yippie Cafe and Museum in New York City: The event will raise consciousness about Medical Rights activist and our Yippie brother, Political Prisoner Dana Beal, whom the Obama Administration is trying has locked up for saving people’s lives. https://www.facebook.com/groups/143405647913/ And there’s more about Dana Beal, and about Jill Stein, in this link: http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2012/04/22/presidential-contender-jill-stein-issues-major-statement-on-marijuana-to-mark-420/
~~~III. $500 for a New England Tour recruiting Marijuana activists and getting the necessary signatures to get Jill on the ballot in the other four New England states. All of New England has anti-establishment politics and a strong Marijuana movement;
~~~IV. $??? A Virtual Calling Room of well-connected activists. When Jill Stein was trying to make Matching Funds a few weeks ago, it looked like she had no chance, since only 9 of the 20 states…well, I already told you about that. But, there’s also this: Two years ago, I was working for Jill Stein for Governor. I wrote a Rock Opera and presented it at the University of Massachusetts. Jill Stein opened for me. It was by far the largest attended Jill Stein event of her entire Gubernatorial campaign, and it significantly changed her poll numbers at UMass versus the incumbent Governor. And I’m just one guy typing. Imagine if we had a Virtual Calling Room of seven dedicated activists, each of them with tremendous networks and skills! And we don’t need our calling room to raise money this time: We just need to raise consciousness: These seven people – I’ll accept no substitutes – can help us win California, Florida, Texas, New England, Kentucky, the Midwest… Look, if you think we’ve already got it wrapped up, maybe you think we don’t really need more of a push; but I think we do need this push. Here’s where to donate specifically to the Sticky Greens effort.

http://stickygreen.webs.com/

Anyone can donate to the Sticky Greens, there’s no limit, no restriction, no tax deduction. You can donate directly just because you want to, but if you also want some premiums for your donation, that is possible too. For a donation of just $7 you can get 2 great radical Bumper Stickers to help us Grow Jack and Elect Jill (we are the Sticky Greens); choose any two from the list below, or choose two from the pre-selected Matching Sets. (Note, that only about $5 of that $7 is actually donated, since the postage and materials will cost about $2 per pair.) If we get 420 of these $7 donations, that will pay for the WMNF Tampa Community radio shows, the Yippie Cafe event for Dana Beal and Jill Stein, and the New England Tour. For the calling room, we’d need more.

Here’s the list: Watch for new Bumper Stickers added at the ends of the updated lists.

Jill Stein Busted for “Defiant Trespass” for Knockin’ on the Door of a Giant Bank

Jill Stein Busted for “Defiant Trespass” for Knockin’ on the Door of a Giant Bank — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)

 

 

Jill Stein. Jill Stein Defiant Trespass. Knock on the door of a giant bank.

When the people Occupied for their actual rights, Obama sent in a tank.

Re-Legalizing Hemp along the Mississippi’d save a billion tons of topsoil.

Obama’s plan for the environment? Burn a bunch o’billion tons of Oil.

 

He’s got “Clean-” Mountain Top Removal “-Coal,” “Clean Nukes;” Yeah, he’s talkin’ out his glass.

He’s got a new Frackin’ Fossil Fuel he wants to use on you. He calls it Frackin’ “Natural” Gas.

It will make your kids die a lot younger, leave them a short horrible hot hellish life.

But you’re not worried about that a bit, ’cause it’ll already’ve killed you and your wife.

 

Hemp doesn’t hold any Fossilized Carbon. And there ain’t no new Carbon forming.

Hemp fuels are fully Carbon Neutral. Hemp Economy can stop Global Warming.

It could be our last chance to halt climate change, but he‘s pushin’ us up to the Tipping Point.

Now he’s ready to start up Oil War III, just so the world won’t be smokin’ a joint.

 

Jill Stein. Jill Stein. She said it all so fine.

Jill Stein. Jill Stein. Mother Nature has sent us a sign!

And I know our life could be alright if the President had a spine.

 

Jill Stein. Jill Stein will close that filthy Coal Mine.

Jill Stein. Jill Stein tells the truth, not a spokesmodel’s line.

Stop it D! Stop it R! Stop your climate denyin’!

Just give up. Let the world go right down the tubes. Just Frack it!

Or else you start tryin’!

 

Jill Stein. Jill Stein. She said it all so fine.

Jill Stein. Jill Stein. Let’s quit cryin’ ’cause we’re gonna stop fryin’,

And I know our life could be alright if the President had a spine.

 

Green Presidential candidate Jill Stein and her Vice Presidential running mate Cheri Honkala were arrested at a Philadelphia bank for standing up and speaking up for people being thrown out of their homes.

You can tell by the name of the charge “Defiant Trespass,” that the crime is a political one. These are Political Prisoners. Knocking on the door of a foreclosing bank is obviously protected political speech under the US Constitution’s First Amendment. (Everybody should read the Constitution, at least as far as the First Amendment.)

Hemp has the highest biomass of any plant: More weight of Hemp can be produced per acre than of any plant on Earth. Hemp can be planted one inch apart, so that, in one square mile, we can grow over Four Billion Plants (4,014,489,600, to be exact). This is how we stop Global Warming, because, on a small amount of land, Hemp can produce millions of tons of Clean Fuel, without any net Carbon emissions whatsoever. That’s because Hemp fuels are Carbon Neutral: They can’t cause Global Warming, because the only Carbon in Hemp is that which the Hemp has just absorbed from the air. Hemp seed oil is the world’s richest source of Biodiesel which burns clean in any standard Diesel vehicle. Hemp plants are also the world’s richest source of Ethanol, which burns clean in any standard internal combustion engine.

With Hemp, we can be Energy Independent in a few months.

Hemp is also the richest source of what Corporate Spokesmodels call “Natural Gas.” But when it’s made from Hemp, we call it Biogas, because it doesn’t cause Global Warming when burned, and it can’t, because there are no net Carbon Dioxide emissions. Scientists at Lund University in Sweden proved that Hemp grown on 6% of our arable land would supply all of our energy wants and needs, without any Global Warming. http://my.firedoglake.com/normanb/2010/11/11/breakthrough-swedish-hemp-energy-study-corroborates-hemp-emperor-herer/ and http://mamamojournal.blogspot.com/2010/11/hemp-energy-farming-breakthrough-study.html

Twenty-five million people in this country are out of work. President Obama’s $470 billion jobs program gave all of its billions to corporations, who then didn’t hire very many people, and still we have 25 million people out of work. If the President had taken Jill Stein’s advice a few months back, we’d already have full employment! Jill’s formula is simple: Hire the unemployed people. That’s what Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal did to get us out of the Great Depression. And that’s what Jill Stein’s Green New Deal will do for us this time.

Most of the jobs that Obama has created are service jobs around minimum wage: Workers who pay no taxes. Conversely, with Jill’s plan, all of our 25 million unemployed can be hired immediately, at $18,800 per year: Enough to pay plenty of taxes, especially when we add another 25 million tax payers.
