Working on Personal and Spiritual Growth

For months, I have sat back and observed myself struggling with my faith and in what direction it is supposed to be leading me. It began when I found out that Jesus, whom I have learned to love, idolize and assumeD to be God, was merely the re-creation of Horus, son of Isis and Osirus. I have been told repeatedly that it should not affect my view of God but I can’t wrap my head around it yet. I BELIEVE that God is still God and that, being my Creator, is the only one to be worshiped, but let’s face it, like so many raised in the church, I learned to worship Jesus. It’d be so much easier had I been raised with virtually no background and were, more or less, a blank slate!

For decades, I’ve been taught that Jesus was equal with God and was, in fact, God himself. How’s that work? Are you and YOUR father the same person? How can Jesus (if indeed he even existed) be both God’s “only begotten” AND “equal”? Did God come up with this first and then change and fashion his creation inTO a completely different manner than he, himself, came from? Are you both your father’s “begotten” and simultaneously “equal” with him or do you have to grow a bit and work on catching up to your father? 

Here’s why the Osirus/Isis/Horus issue makes sense to me: because it is relatable. Because Isis literally went to the ends of the earth to find her mate and caused a love child to be created between them even AFTER his death (seems to be a very very ancient precursor of artifical insemination, don’t you think?) Who doesn’t like a good romance??!There are enough questions that arise (for me, anyway) in proportion to the how’s/why’s and wherefore’s in relation to this whole issue for it to bear more thorough research to be a necessity. The subject of God as taught by Christians is neatly wrapped up and contained in a predicatable, neat little package complete with Jesus as the bow. There are few questions aside from which new rule and regulation we can throw before our fellow believers cleverly wrapped up in the pursuit of conversion, i.e. The Great Commission. The vast majority of Chrstians are completely ignorant of the fact that we do this, so entrenched in habit has it become. 

And to those who are Christians, I am not disregarding what you believe; if it’s what keeps you grounded and acting right, keep at it, just don’t be disrespectful towards what I’m saying if you percieve that my actions and behaviour and spirit are right in line with what God stands for. Despite my belief that the book known to millions is full of stories being passed off as history rather than metaphore, I don’t discount everything in it, either. Just being PEOPLE tells us how to live in relative harmony with those around us. Being kind to your neighbor, or to strangers when you could choose to react a different way, are both Biblical and PRACTICALprincipals to live by and can lead to very positive relationships. The point is that these attitude norms are for us as people, not per race, per difference but extends to the core of us, not just relearned behavior.

I know that I am in for a long struggle till I’m at a place in my life where disbelief is no longer an issue and acceptance – towards God, myself and my past – is how I wake up every day seeing and living. Right now, life is a series of opportunities, good and bad, and reprucussions (equally good and bad). One day after another until the end of your life. Probably 90% of the world is unaware of this because life for humans is like an ant farm: we get up, do what we do, see who we see, all without realizing WHY we’re doing it all. Is it just surface selfishness or is there a deeper reason for our behavior and choices? A few of us are critically aware that our choices and behaviors are part of a puzzle that is “Who am I”, a question I believe controls the entirety of our  lives. I want to be active in my life. Although forces and factors outside of my life control the direction it takes, I want to be as involved as I can be. Having been created with the ability to speak and write, I have a certain amount of responsibility to use it as much as I can. 

I no longer remember my original reason for writing this blog. I had edibles and I am tore up from the floor up, and am having a damn near AWESOME experiment. My thoughts are a jumbled mass of snippits vibing for control for use and domination. Wow, this is great! I doubt many read this. People are lazy and don’t want to invest so much of their time into spending the time to read when there are so many other ways. But if you do, I thank you so much for taking the time. Time and money are two things we never seem to have enough of.

Sativa Cannabis Strains to Off-set Addiction to Cocaine and Amphetamines

Come to Peace Now; Fewer Regrets Later

ap_ap-photo1501-640x436 We are in the last days. I’m fully convinced of that.  Anyone paying attention to the goings-on here in the United States as well as the rest of the world will likely consede that things are declining quickly. Earthquakes, volcanoes, rioting and looting because of the still-relevant racial issues going on all over the country (likely the world but trying to keep this in “my own backyard”) are once more coming to a head.

sn401c_sg_0010b Whether things end like they’re described in the Bible or another way, the decline of society and civilization (or should I say UNcivilization) has progressed to a place where it would take a miracle to return to normal, assuming “normal” was ever anything other than a term used to keep people in their place.

riot42 This is not to say that I believe in anarchy because I certainly don’t. On the contrary, I would rather we sat down and held actual communication over a giant bowl of good herb. tumblr_inline_mlbqz7nWWu1qz4rgp

stock-photo-muslim-protest-and-protestors-with-picket-signs-1041110  I believe the government has no right to tell me what to do when that law violates what I believe to be the law of God, or at the very least, the BLESSING of God. WP_20150312_027 These days, that line has been monumentally blurred, maybe even obliterated, because the God that I believe in is apparently a different God than much of the world believes in, if they believe in one at all. Does this make me better than them? Hell no, of course not! It just makes me who I am and life experiences have helped shape me into the person I am.

right-way-wrong-way1 Nowadays, morality is what man says it is; what society dictates – God’s definition, to most people, is completely moot because man’s desire to have their own way supercedes what he wants and says and even more, no one is qualified to speak for a God who’s been around since the beginning, I don’t care what kind of degree some man hands you or how many hours you study. I’ve never studies Hebrew or Greek but I can tell you that I imagine that the more you study about God the LESS you know.

4219b439833fc71ca821413e836c6847 All of that is not true of myself – I’m well aware I am not God, nor do I want to be – and I have no problem with God telling me what to do because he’s been around forever and I have not. The most recent issue(s) today are the gay agenda and the race-related police killings leading to all kinds of anger and hatred. Both have been thrown into everything. Nothing is sacred or pure anymore, especially not love. What you do with your time and in your bedroom is your business but when you start messing with me and impeding on my right to believe and saying nasty crap to me, I will say something whether it’s taboo or not. Isn’t it funny how one-sided tolerance is? I’ve been tripping on that for quite some time now.

Hands on a globe --- Image by © Royalty-Free/Corbis As I stated earlier in another forum, I will add here, because it’s totally relevant to this blog: “There’s no hope left for America beyond the individuals who still love God and their fellow man. The best we can hope for anymore is to teach our children right from wrong, teach them to stand on their own two feet and treat their neighbors with respect and in the end, trust that we taught them enough.”

images Come to peace now. I am talking about inner peace; outter peace is temporary at best. If you come to peace now, you will have fewer regrets later because, in case you’ve missed it, bad things tend to accumulate (like a snowball going downhill) and you’re (and  I’m) going to need to be spiritually fortified in order to make it through. Choose your friends wisely- you’re going to need ALLIES in the days and months and possibly years to come.

God Speed. Go in Peace.

It’s Simply Complicated

imagesThe further we progress in life, the more we divagate as people. Technologically, we keep progressing forward, we’re very good at doing these kinds of things. As people, for the most part, we’re abject failures. All too often, we can live next door to someone for decades with neither party being the wiser. A natural disaster, an apartment fire, or something equally negative is about the only thing that might happen, alerting you to the fact that you even HAVE neighbors, it seems like.

10553821_10152163098551256_8278471907802352853_oPersonally, I’m very much a people-person. My unrealistic side believes there’s hope for the devil; my practical side sees him as a necessary evil and my realistic side sees him as a major hindrance to spiritual growth. I appreciate technology and am grateful it exists (hence this blog Wink) but I ask myself whether or not I’d be able or ready to progress forward if it all crashed today, being brutally honest with myself. It’s a fair-and imperative-question to ask: who would thrive and be able to continue providing for their family if we had to return to the basics -and had no real, working concept of what that entails?

srvrWe have grown so used to watching shows like Survivor, Alaskan surviving programs and the like that we swear we’d know how to function but when the rubber meets the road, would we be really be able to make it post-apocolypse (so to speak)? I seriously doubt it, frankly. The predominant reason we would crash and burn is because we tend to forget these programs are at least mostly scripted whereas our involvement in a post apocolyptic would be entirely non-voluntary, not to mention a very rude awakening. For those of us who have lived pre-internet and remember when we used to walk and run and bend and stoop to do chores, we might have a chance but for this current and future generations, survival would be a very harsh reality.

images (1)We need to come back to where we could survive without technology. There are so many movies, television shows and documentaries surrounding this issue but to actually make it, we’d have to develop a little thing I call EXPERIENCE and that involves getting personally involved – with ourselves and with each other.

Stop Building Bigger Barns; Re-learn to Share

A couple of days ago, my husband and i were at the doctor’s office. We were waiting for our ride back to our appointment, and were having a conversation about the economic gap between rich and poor, a very common conversation for us. What differentiated this conversation was an “aha” moment. As we talked, I mentioned how these mega churches were busy “building bigger barns” and that’s when my “aha” moment happened.

If you don’t recall the parable Jesus told, I will put it here for you all to read:

Luke 12

16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully:

Luke Chapter 12: The Rich Man's Folly

The Rich Man’s Folly
Luke Chapter 12 : 16

17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?

18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.

19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.

20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

22 And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on.

23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment.

24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?

25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit?

26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest?

27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.

28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith?

29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind.

30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things.

31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.

32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.

33 Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth.

34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

35 Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning;

36 And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately.

37 Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

38 And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants.

39 And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.

40 Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

It has long bothered me that we have mega churches with so much poverty in this country. Yes, the poverty is everywhere but I live in the United States, so for the purposes of this blog, I will keep it “in my own backyard”. I believe it is encumbant upon the church to alleviate as much suffering as possible. It is dishonoring to God to hoarde what he has given and I pray that conviction will descend on these churches that are defying him to his face.

For those who ask, who are you? I say this, I am a watcher. I have no money, no fame, no fortune to my name. What I do have is a profound love for my God and my fellow man. Though imperfect, I am willing to do what I have to, to further the kingdom of God and am stepping out in boldness and faith. It takes a lot of courage to do anyting these days, to take a stand. All around us, people are opposed to any stand you take, if said stand goes against the word of God, whether one believes in it word verbatim or in it as a roadmap through life (they’ are not mutually exclusive) and makes you politically incorrect.

Taking care of our fellow man is not a matter of the law or the government, at least it shouldn’t be; it’s a matter of right and wrong, not an issue to be shoved off into the hands of people who don’t care one way or another. Because of the nature of our political landscape, it’s become a very cold world, and many, many people are dying and suffering who could be helped. There’s a huge discrepency between rich and poor. There are the 1%ers, as they say- those who own the majority of the money, the influence, and the property. Then there are the 99%ers – those who struggle to get by, pay for the lifestyle of the rich and famous (by going to see their movies, listen and buy their music, sport, etc.; and buy the products advertised, whether we need them or not), and, sadly, this is no different in the church than anywhere else.

To put things into perspective, let me show you what I mean:

Here’s a list of mega churches in this country and their numbers:

complete-list-mega-churches

None of this would not be a problem were it not for two primary issues that arise out of it. The first issue that arises is the discrepency between the rich and the poor. How can a preacher or pastor stand up and talk about God providing for us all when they’re hoarding the wealth, not paying taxes (as commanded by God – Render unto Caesar what belongs to Caesar…Mark 12:17) and so far removed from their people that they could probably have the same member for 20 years and never even realized that person exists past their initial joining. The second issue that arises is the impact that the mega church has on the world in general, which is already looking for reasons to dismiss God out-of-hand. Add a mega church into the mix with its cold, calculating, materialistic nature and who wants to join the family of God and what for when the options are 1) they don’t know you 2) they don’t care about you and 3) you’re only as valuable as the amount of money you sink into their organization (and if you don’t have any, they likely don’t know you even exist and so have no time for you at all). None of these reasons are representative of the God who’s supposed to care about us personally.

Don’t misunderstand me: I have no problem with people making money. I have no problem with wealth. If there wasn’t such a huge inconsistancy between rich and poor, I would say, do your thing but that’s not the case.

Consider this:

@s_1

Can a church claim to be fiscally responsible and preach about money to people when there is this level of poverty? Can they say that the level has nothing to do with them and that they should be able to accumulate all the wealth they want to when we’re supposed to be loving God and our neighbor as ourself?

As the body of Christ, we need to return to the basics. We are all, individually and collectively, responsible for each other. We’ve lost sight of this fact and we’ve drifted so far away from it for so long that we no longer regard our neighbor as our neighbor, but rather another person whom we decide whether or not we want to associate with depending on whether we “approve” or “disapprove” of their thoughts, lifestyle, or behavior. The fact that we’re family seems to have been forgotten.

So, what do I want to come about as a result of this post? In my mind, this is what I want: I want the church to either start paying taxes or to take the taxes that they WOULD be paying to invest in alleviating the homeless problem. There are a lot of creative people in this country – put your creativity into action. Stop hoarding and share. The only reason I wish I had resources would be to share. That’s it. You can’t take your wealth with you and when you go, you leave a lot of resources behind that could go to care for others.

I doubt anything will change although I stubbornly retain hope. I have faith in God; very little in man. My job is to be obedient to the urging of my Spirit, which I have done. What happens from hereon out rests with God. I learned a long time ago that sales, of any kind, is not my strength. Fortunately for me, God is alot bigger than I am and the Spirit is not bound by time and distance.

Remember, no man is an island. Share with your fellow man  and remember that if the shoe were on the other foot, you’d want others to share with you!

El vivir una doble vida

Ok, lo he tenido! Durante meses he estado viviendo una doble vida, por lo que, irónicamente, no ofender a nadie o, más espiritual dijo, “poner tropiezo ante los no iniciados”.

He estado pensando en escribir esto por un largo tiempo … entonces mi marido me acercó y me dijo que acababa de ser mencionado en la radio que la razón de que la marihuana pasó en Colorado fue porque no suficientes cristianos se presentaron en los lugares de votación y eso es por lo que he pasado.

Perdonen la expresión, pero ¿quién diablos es usted? Por lo tanto, porque fumo una planta que Dios nos dio, no sólo como un ingrediente en el aceite santo mencionado específicamente en el Éxodo como el vídeo de arriba explica sino como una hierba para ayudar a conectarnos directamente con nuestro Dios, ya que ayuda distracción enfoque (directamente de cannabis plantas), no puede ser un cristiano?

Soy un hijo de Dios. Yo lo amo con todo mi corazón y mi alma y me volvería a dar mi vida por él. Yo también fuman hierba, tan a menudo como sea posible. Yo no me avergüenzo de ello … así que ¿por qué estoy siendo forzado a vivir una vida de separación? Dos cuentas de Twitter, dos cuentas de Prensa palabra, dos Linked In cuentas. Es una locura. Claro, quiero conseguir un trabajo de un día y de acuerdo con la ley, especialmente la ley federal, arriesgo mi carrera entera en una prueba de orina por fumar una planta que, con toda franqueza, me recibe a través de estos largos días de soledad y desamparo. Por lo tanto, puedo dejar de fumar en la remota posibilidad de que no encuentro trabajo y permitir que el trastorno de estrés postraumático que mantengo a raya con esta hierba magnífico para hacerse cargo de mi vida … O puedo evitar el consumo de tabaco y confiar en el Dios y Creador, que me hizo que me guíe y me proteja, posiblemente me pone en alguna parte (¡oh!), donde se puede fumar y trabajo en completa armonía y mantener este tema molesto a raya la depresión? Mira, yo solía estar en la medicación (Zoloft) para el trastorno de estrés postraumático después de descubrir que había después de una estancia de tres días en una habitación “goma” después casi me lanza por la ventana del segundo piso, pero la solución para morder a mí mismo (con tanta fuerza que casi nos llevó al borde de mi mano). Yo había estado haciendo durante años … ¿quién sabía que era anormal? De todos modos, mi consejero me puso en él, había una sesión tras otra conmigo (donde nada mejoró y la medicación me había dando vueltas todo el día temblando como una víctima de Parkinson y trismo casi constante de los dientes, la mandíbula, ya sea en la posición de bloqueo o charlando sin parar. La gente siempre me pregunta si me estaba congelando, y yo no lo era. Es por eso que yo se lo quitó y aprendió a hacer frente, hasta que descubrí una planta maravillosa que fue creado por Dios, tenía propiedades curativas maravillosas y no hay efectos secundarios en absoluto!

Es necesario comprender, yo crecí en la iglesia, concretamente en la Iglesia Protestante Reformada, y en la secundaria yo sabía que había algo mal con … algo. En ese momento yo pensaba que era específicamente esta denominación (Soy mucho más maduro en Cristo ahora, así que sé lo que el problema era y sigue siendo). No era, pero no fue hasta que conocí al hombre que yo estoy casada ahora, que he aprendido a entender el punto en el tiempo en una mejor luz. Aprendí mi catecismo, memoricé lo que pareció millones (y millones) de los versos en el momento en que me gradué, incluso se convirtió en miembro de la iglesia en Edgerton, MN. Siempre me pregunté qué le pasaba a mí en esos días … Yo sabía que tenía una conciencia muy sensible y entendido nunca, que no me sentía tan indigno, ¿por qué exactamente eso le molestaba mi conciencia que tenía una conciencia sensible. Cuestiones de peso … sin respuesta que podría llevarlos ante la iglesia a la que ahora era un miembro en por qué me sentía tanta necesidad de una correcta relación con Dios, de tener miedo de él había una norma, pero se sentía mal. Esto no era “el temor del Señor” … este era “el temor del Señor”, y antes de que nadie me enseñó, yo sabía la diferencia.
Después de eso, cada iglesia que se convirtió en miembro de me trajo un poco más cerca del final el maestro fuera de Dios mismo, y que era (ser) el hombre que se casó, Rafael Hameed. Mira, yo lo vi sanar, él me sanó en numerosas ocasiones. Jugó un papel decisivo porque fue practicado y experimentado, y porque me encantó. Athma. Un tobillo roto. Un espíritu quebrantado provocada por una vida de malas decisiones, el rechazo, la pérdida y el dolor. Me vio-todo de mí, incluso las partes que no quería que viera, y me mostró que Dios no le da un tirón lo que parezco, cuánto pesa, cuánto me gustan los hot dogs o lo que sea … Raphael , muy parecido a Dios, amado ME-obesidad, los malos hábitos, la terquedad y casi me amaba demasiado como para permitir que me quede en esa forma de pensar … que ya era hora de ser libre, libre para estudiar las Escrituras, para ampliar mi mente al hecho de que Dios no puede ser puesto en una caja. No puede ser capturado en 5 o 6 versículos de la Biblia o historias contadas a la muerte y que no tiene poder alguno. Rafael me mostró quién soy en Dios, en Cristo. Predica a mí sin parar, y me alegro de que lo hace-porque aprendí hace mucho tiempo que todo lo que sale de su boca, en su mayor parte, va a suceder; puede llevar al banco.

Durante mucho tiempo, me he quejado de la iglesia, siempre se pregunta por qué los demás no podían ver lo que veo cuando miro a la iglesia y lo que ha permitido a sí misma para convertirse en la puta-gobierno. El segundo de la iglesia por primera vez en la cama con el gobierno, lo que permite exenciones fiscales y todo eso, se abrió una caja de Pandora que no tiene y nunca se establecerá derecho, sobre todo porque es muy común hecho por ahora que dudo muchísimo personas incluso lo ven como anormal, y mucho menos MAL COMO DOS ZAPATOS DE IZQUIERDA.
Aun cuando este país fue fundado originalmente en “principios cristianos” ya no es … una nación cristiana. En los corazones y las mentes de muchos, es probable que todavía no es más que en un país donde se acepta el matrimonio entre homosexuales, el aborto, y todas las demás cuestiones que tienen prioridad en cada carrera política, ¿puede alguien negar realmente que este mundo es Caesars? Esto no quiere decir que el matrimonio gay debería ser prohibido, y no debe, porque este mundo secular conforma reglas seculares y las razones de ser ilegal en algunos estados tienen menos que ver con el “cristiano” que con la “política”. Lo mismo ocurre con el aborto, a pesar de mis opiniones personales. No estoy de acuerdo con el 96% de los “Derechos de las Mujeres” movimiento aunque periódicamente me beneficio … en su mayor parte, fue un desastre tanto en la iglesia como en el hogar.
¿Sabes lo que Jesús dijo … “Dad al César lo que es del César, ya Dios lo que es de Dios.” Eso no sólo se refiere a los impuestos y diezmos, aunque eso es lo que se predica. Se refiere a todo … los aspectos materialistas de este mundo … eso es todo cosas de César. Eso no quiere decir que no se puede ser cristiano y tener “cosas” … ciertamente posible. Pero las cosas que César tiene? Eso es todo de Dios: el material que la mía y perforar para hacer los productos que el hombre vende, los árboles que se talan para la extinción de los bosques después de bosque cuando CÁÑAMO podría ser utilizado (y es ilegal!), La sobre-fishomg que traen tantas personas puestos de trabajo. Todo lo que se hace es de Dios.
He dicho todo esto para decir esto: la Iglesia tiene verdaderos problemas para hacer frente, empezando por la limpieza de la parte interior de su propia taza y luego hacer frente a las luchas internas denominacional. Hay un montón de cristianos que hay que recoger la tubería y poner hierba con olor dulce en ella y fumar una planta maravillosa. Hay quienes tienen el talento para hacer picadillo de aceite y un amor por la gente en sus corazones, haciendo exactamente lo que Jesús pasó su ministerio haciendo-ministrar a los perdidos, los rotos, los moribundos, los muertos. Entonces, ¿quién eres tú para apuntar el dedo y decir, porque él / ella no baja el nombre, no son salvos? En primer lugar, no es hasta usted para decidir-que ‘s entre él / ella y el Señor. En segundo lugar, si usted va a tener nada que ver con dicha persona, Dios lo pondrá o ella directamente en su camino. De lo contrario, le deje solo. Como Dios le dijo a Samuel hace mucho tiempo, “el hombre mira lo exterior, pero Dios mira el corazón”.
No me estoy escondiendo más. No tengo ninguna razón para avergonzarse de la vida que llevo … las circunstancias en que me encuentro están más allá de mi control-nunca estuvieron en mi control y no un producto de mis errores como era mi vida hace mucho tiempo, antes de mi aparición en una mariposa de la crisálida. El gobierno federal tiene jurisdicción sobre mi ser físico, pero mi espíritu está más allá de su control. Yo pago impuestos porque Dios quiere que honrar el estado en que me ha puesto y yo lo hago como un signo de mi fidelidad a Dios. El motivo es correcto, por lo tanto, la acción es correcta. Fumo hierba porque es mi sacramento de la elección. Al igual que las iglesias tienen comunión, yo también Al final, voy a comparecer ante el juez y, si es posible, voy a tener un plato de banda para la cabeza para compartir con mi Señor!

Who’s Bringing the Cheetos and Chocolate Chip Cookies?

junejuly2010pix015.jpgAs I am sure you are aware, unless you have been living up in the mountains with Heidi’s Grandfather and taking care of too many goats in the Swiss Alps to notice, you probably know that this past Tuesday, November 7th, here in America, most citizens went to the polls.  You are probably also aware that, in addition to voting in a new, or continuing President, you were going to vote for a Proposition known as Prop 64 (in Colorado), Initiative 502 (Washington State), and Measure 80 (Oregon). Oregon didn’t pass it; Colorado and Washington State did!

My beautiful pictureIn listening to the radio today, I learned that Governor Hickenlooper of Colorado was scheduled to have a conference call with Attorney General Eric Holder to find out what, if anything, the Federal government intends to do about the citizens decision to legalize marijuana despite Governor Hickenlooper’s personal views and the Federal government’s neverending stand. I have not received word (via the radio- believe me, the government and state tell me nothing!) on what the outcome of said meeting was. I will be sure to update this post when I find out.

R and H ChemDog-AFinaleHarvestI want to know this: if Eric Holder decides that his views/those of the federal government are more important than those of millions of voting citizens who want this legalized, in Colorado and Washington, what are we prepared to do about it? Are we going to stand by and let them take away our legal rights as residents and tax paying citizens in America or are we going to do what we usually do-fold like a three-dollar-suit? And while we’re at it, what is NORML and the ASA doing about this? Are they involved?

This is a historic vote. This is probably the biggest overturn of this kind since prohibition (alcohol) was overturned except (in my view) much, much safer, because no one has died due to this beautiful plant yet-and no one is likely to.

So, with all that in mind, who’s coming over and who’s bringing the cheetos and the chocolate chip cookies? And, for heaven’s sake, DON’T FORGET THE BONG!!
