Happy Surprise Possum Friday, GN!

Current Larryville temperature: 16ºF; bah!

Sven --

Points well taken in your 7:33 p.m. comment yesterday; I do disagree re how to “balance” this issue, as it has become such a tangled, insane mess. (Thanks, government!)

IMO, weed is “Schedule 1” largely because that rat bastard Milhouse -- who signed the DEA into law in ’73 -- wanted a tool to discredit and persecute political enemies…in this instance, anti-war protestors and Blacks. (Which is part of a fine War on Drugs tradition of targeting “undesirables” which dates back to San Francisco opium dens in the late 19th Century.)

It’s an asinine situation all the way ’round; unfortunately, I have no faith in the Congress or President to “fix” it.

And I’ve been anti-Sessions from the git-go in no small part due to his having made it very clear prior to his appointment that he’s a prohibitionist and a cop-sucker who loves civil asset forfeiture.

Absent a pro-liberty / pro-COTUS plague breaking-out inside the Beltway (ha!), I think the path we’re on might be the least shitty way of resolving this particular issue. It’s an unholy mess, but things are moving decisively in what I consider a positive direction.

(I admit the preceding is not all that well-argued; got a full plate today.)

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Yesterday, PDT said he would open up Federal waters to oil and gas leases. Today California Dems said over my dead body. I wonder how much of this he does just to tweak them?

Hai, Paddy!

Dead bodies of CA Dems is not without its attractions. It wouldn’t surprise me if Trump was, indeed, winding-up the eco-‘tards out there deliberately.

Also read something yesterday about a new CA trend: “raw water” (Google it!); there sure are a lot of idjits out there with more money than sense. And someone’s figured out a way to dupe them into paying over twenty bucks a gallon for what us unwashed folks ’round here call “well water”.

ANNCR: “Now in two new flavors: ‘Cryptosporidia’ and ‘Brain-Eating Amoeba’…for your good health!”

I mentioned that to Teh Older and Teh Younger yesterday. While Ace mentioned cholera, the three of us immediately jumped to the more likely contaminants -- giardia and cryptosporidium. I loved the quote from the vendor that his water only lasts “one lunar cycle”, after that it will turn green. Quick, drink it before the contaminants multiply!

Brenda and I also laughed at the “one lunar cycle” silliness; I suggested that “one menstrual cycle” might also be a useful metric.

You’d think that letting it get moar filled with “probiotics” would be a good thing. (But then, I’m an unsophisticated rube now, unlike when I lived in CA.) ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
