staged...













Welded up the uprights and got everything in place for an early morning pour tomorrow.  Chased off a furry critter while working around the grounds.  78,87,58,0,C

A recent rather unsettling development in the Republic of Obama.  http://www.libertyforall.net/?p=6702  Behind closed doors and with the stroke of his evil pen, the nations leader has just made it a felony for anyone using medicinal marijuana to be in possession of a firearm or ammunition.  I would venture to guess that more shooting deaths have occured due to booze than weed.  The war on drugs and guns continues.

"any person who uses or is addicted to marijuana, regardless of whether his or her state has passed legislation authorizing marijuana use for medicinal purposes, is an unlawful user of or addicted to a controlled substance, and is prohibited by federal law from possessing firearms or ammunition."

This doesn't appear to be a new law, I think it's always been this way.

They don't seem to comprehend that part of the second amendment,"shall not be infringed" and haven't seen that poster " They can have it when they take it from my cold dead hands."

You have rights and you have a right to defend those rights with whatever force is necessary.

Ewwww A BIG HAIRY SPIDER< SQUISH IT!



No, seriously squish it.

When medicinal marijuana is outlawed, only outlaws will have....

Guess I'll hafta stick with Tanqueray, Bud, Ste Genevieve Red, etc, so I can legally own a few
.22 cartridges.

Allison's right. It's not a new law. The edict is an interpretation of the law that's been on the books since 1968. Look for lawsuits to be filed challenging the constitutionality of this rule.....

and please folks, don't squish the tarantulas..they're (almost)harmless

Lord help us here in the USA if we can't come up with a way to get rid of Obama and his chronies! My dad (a WW2 vet, injured at Normandy) used to say he feared NOTHING more than the police and our Governments...He said they both have TOO MUCH power.

Tarantulas are harmless, that is until some crazy guy in a lonely desert laboratory injects them with growth serum and it escapes and grows a hundred feet tall!

Here in CA we have been told that if we have a medical marijuana card it will invalidate our concealed carry permit or prevent one from being issued.

This used to be such an informative, fun and interesting blog before it fell into the bottomless chasm of political/governmental ranting.

I can see right now TCM is one of them ranters. What do you think should be done with him?

Don't be too harsh cause I think he has seen his evil ways and will fall in line.

Yea we can't have people coming on a blog and expressing their opinions to a subject. That would be the American way and we can't have that.

It isnt Obama that is wanting to take away your pot, it was very clearly the republican party that wanted that stopped.

They are also the party that doesnt want anyone but Christians to have civil rights in this country. They are also the party that misinterpids what other religions are about and spend way too much time demonizing anyone who is not christian.

Re: gun law-never let the truth get in the way of a good story.

WhyR said...

"Evil pen"? Does he have an "evil" pen and a "good" pen? "Evil" is a term that gets thrown around freely by conservatives these days, when they're not comparing Obama to Hitler. The big threat to the well-being of this country is the jobs crisis, not terrorism or somebody running around trying to take away your guns. Remember when you had a job? How fundamentally important it was? It's estimated that Obama's jobs bill could create up to 2 million new jobs if enacted, and the House Republican leadership won't even consider it. The reason? If it succeeded, that success would attach to Obama. The Republicans' stated goal is to cause Obama to fail, and ensuring economic disaster for the middle class and the people at the bottom is their method. Now THAT'S evil.

Terry said...

John,

How is your tarantula doing? Do you see lots of them? Do you ever see the Mexican Red Knee tarantula (Brachypelma smithi, aka B-smithi) in Terlingua? They are very gentle and not aggressive at all...unlike their distant cousin, the nasty and temperamental Rangoon Mustard (Chilobrachys sericeus) tarantula, who are quite aggressive and mean...

Please don't squish them (the spiders), you can squish the Obama lovers.

Your friend,

Terry

The prep for the pour looks great. Can't wait to see the finished product.

I never squish spiders. They are our friends. Anytime I catch one in my house, I help him (or her) to find his way outside. Snakes are also our friends. It makes me sad to see people kill them for no reason. I understand that you don't want poisonous spiders and reptiles near your dwelling, but killing them just because they exist is stupid and cruel.

Another thing that is stupid and cruel is drug laws. And gun laws. The war on drugs has been a tremendous waste of time, energy, and money, and has made criminals out of many otherwise peaceful, harmless, law abiding citizens. The ones who are inclined to ruin their lives with drugs, alcohol, or other substances will do it regardless of any laws. "We don't need no stinking badges!"
