boredom

Nothing else to do.  I can't even remember what it was I was in the process of.  Life is full of so many trailing ellipses and empty thoughts of everything.  Irony seems to embroil each passing thought as if to say "see, just another convoluted paranoid delusion".  Before I have the chance to pay rightful mourn and closure to one cohesive thought, the next rambles through like a train on a crossing track.  The collision so faint I can hardly tell there was even an disturbance.  This is, of course, until I realize I am no longer on the same perpetual course.  The tragedy is always lost on the locomotion of, seemingly, concurrent streams of synaptic explosions.  By the time I have the wherewithal to realize these pseudo relationships; the concept of my initial thought is so vast I can no longer recognize any centrality.

What Would War Driving Do?

First you'll need kismet running on your Zaurus.



Then you'll need stuff to sniff the elusive wifi packets.



Then you kick back and watch the packets fly by

When wireless meant work

It used to be, not so very long ago, you had to make your own wireless network.  That's right boys and girls, it wasn't just ubiquitously there.





then just point and shoot!

Cannabis Tax :: An Anarchist View

Fundamentally, the taxation of cannabis and the medical marijuana movement do not offer true freedom nor true liberty. To support and fight for these causes will only lead to future struggle and resistance against them, to achieve the same ends. Think about it. We are working so hard for the privilege to let our government tax and regulate a plant, that for thousands of years, has lived symbiotic with us.

Why expend the energy to fight for something, but only part way? To be truly free, we must be afforded all the natural resource around us, including cannabis. It is not acceptable to pay the state for the right to utilize this resource. We do not need the state to grow, process nor distribute this plant to reap it's many benefits. There is no real threat of impending natural disaster or public health demise because of it's use. The true fight is complete autonomy for the cannabis plant. Any movement that accepts less than total and unrestricted use of cannabis as their platform, is simply building a separate layer for state control. It is analogous to feeding gremlins after midnight.

There is much ado about cannabis, and for good reason. It is one of the most useful natural resources the world has. If it were not such an amazing plant there would be little fan fair on its behalf. The state (and it's corporate lobbyists) realize this and are hellbent on controlling the cannabis trade completely. Remember some of the big money - like Eli Lilly, Dupont, Eli Whitney (cotton industry) that helped make cannabis illegal in the first place. These folks had a lot to loose if they had to compete with cannabis, so they lobbied to criminalize it. They still want to get paid, trust. A state regulated cannabis society will breed a new lobby in Washington. Consisting of mega-corporations, with cannabis competing interests, to fight along side with the tobacco, liquor and gun lobbyists helping disenfranchise you further.

Any law that provides state controlled marijuana to citizens also offers a false sense of freedom. We are not getting more freedom because a law is being passed to tax cannabis. On the contrary, we are gaining more rules, restriction, and control. The only way to achieve freedom for cannabis is to strike its' name from the law books and allow citizens to do what they do best, use the resources available to make a better life for themselves.
