From Whence I Came 

When is Muslim Terrorist Month? A letter to the editor from my hometown newspaper...

American-born residents get no respect

The Sept. 15 Gazette contained an ad touting Hispanic Heritage Month.

When is my month? I am native American (I was born here, which makes me native American), white, and I get no respect. We have an entire month for blacks, one for Hispanics (legal and illegal) and I am expecting one for Muslims, Islamists and terrorists. When do I get some respect?

No pressure, little Bobbie... 

Donate to Jim Webb's Senate Campaign 

I endorse everything that Matthew Yglesias says here.

Once I start my new job--next Wednesday for those of you keeping score at home--I can't donate to any political campaigns for a year (or blog, probably). But I can give money now, and Webb is as deserving a Democratic candidate as there is this year.

Even if you can't give much, please consider throwing the guy $20 here.

Call your Senators 

So McCain and Bush just came to a "compromise" that strips meaningful judicial protections from anyone the President says so. Oh, and the bills authorizes violations of Common Article III of the Geneva Conventions too.

This is so deeply, fundamentally wrong--I can't believe this is happening in our country (even after everything else). But it is--and we should at least try to stop it. The only hope lies in convincing the Senate to defeat the compromise. It may be damn near impossible, but we should at least try.

For more information check out: Lizardbreath, Marty Lederman, and Publius.

To contact your sentators--calling your own senators is most effective--go here.

What are they smoking? 

A report mentioned is slate today points out that anti-marijuana "public service" ads have hilariously caused more people to use marijuana. While this should have left a taste as bitter as bongwater in the mouths of White House drug policy hacks, they instead suppressed the mulit-million dollar report to spend more money on a program they knew wasn't working.

But why the fuck do they care? Of course, marijuana use isn't all good. For example, if someone around you smokes pot, it is much more likely that you will be inconsiderately woken up at 7:00am by horrific coughing and rap music.

In my own life, the DEA brought the hammer down on a huge operation in Boulder. Shockingly, it was one outfit supplying most of Boulder. Not only has this injudicious use of taxpayer money cramped my style for the last 3 weeks, I am livid thinking some DEA stooge is patting him/herself on the back for a job well done. All they have succeeded in is irritating their intellectual better (me).

That tricky DEA is also practicing old school trade protection, using tax payer dollars to fight the marijuana legalization initiative in Colorado. Is all the heroin and cocaine gone? Aren't there bigger fish to fry than subverting democracy? Not in their eyes. The Bush admin has made marijuana it's number 1 drug war priority saying "Marijuana use, especially during the teen years, can lead to depression, thoughts of suicide and schizophrenia."

Agent Cocksucker, here's hoping you meet your end with a shotgun blast to the face - of delicious bud smoke!

About us:

This weblog is an ongoing, if periodic, effort by several friends to stay in touch, in reading material, and in ideas.

Lucky Luciano is a former Italian Stallion real estate hustler and Benedict Arnold CEO turned shady lawyer-to-be. He lives in Denver.

Ben is a Paramedic and would-be philantropist who lives in Denver. He knows everything about nothing.

Fuzzy Dunlop lives in Manhattan. He is more than capable of standing up to the stresses of a high crime urban environment.

Jess is a teacher. But have YOU given her an apple? No, you haven't. You should be ashamed of yourself. This crazy feminist currently rests her copy of Awakening in Jersey City.

Matt is a pariah, iconoclast, and professor of gambling living in Oakland.

Miguel Sanchez is not Lionel Hutz.

Daddy Brooklyn lives in Brooklyn. He hates Republicans, though he wouldn't mind being ensconced in the landed elite of New York City.

Paul just smoked my eyelids and punched my cigarette.

Ziggy Stardust has no past.
