Willie Nelson’s daughter had a dream. In that dream was a song, A Peaceful Solution. Willie Nelson added to the song and published it, for the world to use and enjoy, and for anyone to record. My partner Rachel of YouTube channel medicinesocks wrote lyrics and performed it. Willie Nelson’s YouTube channel hosted Rachel’s version of the song on their page. Our friend Concha in Spain made a video of it. If you click on the link above, the automated playlist proceeds like this: (1) Rachel plays the intro on Guitar; (2) Concha’s video of the full song displays the words in English and Spanish below the picture; (3) Green Party Presidential candidate Jill Stein speaks out on Legalizing Marijuana at the Boston Freedom Rally, during her 2010 run for Massachusetts Governor; (4) Rachel plays the song live: All of that lasts eight-and-a-half minutes; then (5) Amy Goodman on Friday’s Democracy Now! interviews Green Party Presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein, MD, and (6) her just-named running mate Cheri Honkala; and (7) the psychedelic aud-vid mash-up version from our friend Stephen Adamo on his YouTube channel DEATHINKING.
To do that, she had to gather more than $5,000 in donations from at least 20 states. She did so in 22 states, with lots of exposure here at FireDogLake, and an enormous amount of help and Green Energy from the Medical Marijuana advocates and activists in Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, Michigan, Maine, and elsewhere, and from Marijuana Legalization activists in Florida, Virginia, North Carolina, Washington, DC, and elsewhere.
More than a year ago, Willie Nelson started the Tea Pot Party and Roseanne Barr started the Green Tea Party. Around the same time, Ralph Nader started the Coffee Party and I started the Sticky Greens. Roseanne Barr then ran for the Green Party nomination for President. Willie said about the Tea Pot Party “We lean a little to the Left.” Willie Nelson said he endorsed Libertarian Presidential candidate Gary Johnson, former Republican Governor of New Mexico, who also favors Legalization. Willie Nelson recently said that he would be Roseanne Barr’s running mate, if she gets the nomination. Roseanne is at the convention now. Tea Pot Parties are very active nationwide at trying to Legalize.

US/Al Qaida Genocidal Oil Dictatorship Torturing Black Libyans: Obama & NY Times say Rigged Election was Cool — by NormanB (“Deviations from the Norm”)
These guys did not get to vote, even though no one could possibly be more patriotic than them: During their Torture at the hands of US-backed mercenaries in this video, watch them forced to eat green Libyan flags.
Before the Obama Administration’s US Military crushed Arab Spring by starting its war against Libya, that country’s leader Moammar Gaddafi enjoyed wide support among Black Africans living mainly in Libya’s South. After the US hired Al Qaida mercenaries to overthrow Gaddafi, the new Al Qaida Dictatorship now running Libya carried out widespread repression, Torture, and Genocide against Black Africans. I have seen no reports that any Black Africans voted in the Parliamentary Election there this weekend.
US President Barack Obama’s praise of the Libyan Election was quite echoic of his praise for the “Elections” following the Fascist takeovers that were parts of his Administration’s Administrative coup de tats that Obama’s CIA carried out in Honduras in 2010, in the Maldives earlier this year, and in Paraguay two weeks ago. The New York Times propaganda headline yesterday also said it was a mainly good Election. The problem I see with it is the Election workers Assassinated, polling officials Murdered, and the ballots burned. l call that a “Rigged Election.” But President Obama and inept media with misinformed readers and viewers call it cool. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/07/08/us-libya-elections-obama-idUSBRE86700X20120708
Like most wars, this one was fought to raise the price of Oil. This one also had the direct effect stealing Oil that a country had been using to support itself, and handing that Oil and its attendant economy to Oil corporations. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-01-19/conoco-books-tanker-to-ship-libyan-oil-to-u-s-shipbrokers-say.htm Mercenaries during the 2011 US War on Libya were paid by BP, Blackwater, and ultimately, by US. At the top of the page is a recent video upload of Black Africans still being Tortured by the current Libyan mercenary Dictatorship. US-backed Al Qaida mercenaries have stuffed Libyan flags into Black people’s mouths, and are forcing them to eat the flags.
And here are more Torture videos, and background information, if you’re not sick enough from what you’ve already read and seen. Firedoglake.com is one of the only US media outlets covering the Libya situation, instead of Covering it Up.
The British later revoked their license. http://www.rt.com/news/iranian-presstv-license-revoked-333/ The US Government named the Journalists at both Press TV and RT of Russia as enemies. If you’ve never watched them, both are much better journalism than we usually find on PBS, on Fox, or on ABCNNBCBS.
