Statement to: Occupy Unites States, Together, America, USA, World

Well for one, whoever is running the website and the facebook page for Occupy Miami (the local camp here) should start speaking up. They are the first to show major interest in most online activities, groups, pages etc.

As far as a group for USA in general.  Think about the parents or people in general who cannot physically occupy, online organizations via virtual groups for these citizens is wise and honorable (every voice is important). Having any rogue moderations from these website or the facebook pages does not make sense for solidarity.  We need to stay together otherwise this hinders the movement and furthermore counterproductive to our goals as a collective.

All of this is because of money – point blank – it all starts there. This is why the process began on Wall St. The banks have all the control and virtually control OUR government because of the money. Keep in mind when discussing corporatism with others that it does have different meanings in other countries. In the U.S. corporatism is a reference to big business which has enough power and money to challenge the state’s political power. This the core issue at hand. Seems the ones infiltrated are in it for money, to take advantage of the opportunity to sell shirts, recordings, evidence or other items/goods/commodities to end our movement and some even campaign for donations without consensus emitting the probability of thievery of donations.  Like the Master inside Wall St thieves from within. Make sure to research who you donate to!!

Maybe we should start by researching – who are these big businesses? Let’s start informing people with the right information. Informed people can make informed decisions. With the right information, the people of this country can make their statement with their wallet.

Why is Marijuana Illegal?

How this list came about-

“If the truth won’t do, then something is wrong!”

Those were the furious words of my grandfather to my Mother. I had walked in from joyfully stuffing my face with red raspberries in the garden, straight into “war zone”! My gentle grandfather in a fury, his hand raised! Mom was just beginning to shrink back away from him. They saw me and quickly sent me away. But it was too late, the scene and the words were seared into my 5-year-old brain. That was over 55 years ago, but I still remember it clearly. My grandfather was a minister, one very short step away from God in my 5 year old mind. It was one of those life changing moments. It is still rare for me to tell a lie. I never found out what my Mother’s lie was.

As I child, I suffered a traumatic head injury. Another child tried to murder me with a hammer. I was left with frequent migraines. At 19, like many rebellious teens, I tried cannabis. It took about a year for me to make the connection between using cannabis and the absence of my normally frequent migraines. I have used cannabis ever since.

I am an avid reader. While perusing an old book on herbal medicine, I read how the little old ladies of Mexico made and used a cannabis/tequila rub on their arthritic hands. Then I met Joey, an epileptic musician. He told me another interesting fact- when he had pot he could cut his medication in half! On a camping trip years later, I smelled an unmistakable odor. Following my nose, I was totally shocked to find a grandmotherly lady in her 70s puffing away on a delicate oriental pipe. “Parkinson’s. And the pot’s way cheaper than the pills!” Her nephew kept her well supplied, she said. We had a nice chat about various medical uses of cannabis.

Epilepsy, Parkinson’s, arthritis, and my migraines! What else was it good for? Yet every news article on cannabis that I saw, claimed one new horror after another. Men grew breasts and were impotent. Women became sterile or miscarried. It made you crazy and murderous. Made you lazy and do nothing. It caused cancer and heart attacks…What I had learned on my own and from others and what I was being told in the press were so different!

What was the truth? I began researching. I printed the first studies up and kept them in a notebook, just as a personal reference. The notebook quickly filled. I started a Word file of the URLs and on July 30 2007, I posted it. It continues to grow.

Here’s some of what I have found. All I’ve done is copy the URLs, then put them all in some semblance order for everyone to use as a reference. Please feel free to share this list with anyone who could benefit from it.
