Well, amusing in a sad, sad kind of way. Via disinter, a guy allegedly argues with Verizon over his phone bill:
This video is just priceless and quite revealing. Howard Stern sends a man on the street out to Harlem to ask varios individuals who they support in the presidential race. Most say Obama. He then attributes McCain’s postitions to Obama and asks them if they support those positions. He even goes so far as asking if they support his decision to make Sarah Palin his vice president.
See the results here:
On a side note, this is only a small sampling, and I do believe that many McCain supporters would fall for the same trick. This is not revealing of Obama supporters, it is revealing of Americans. It kind of reminds me of the documentary Red State Road Trip.
In case you missed it, the state of California has decided to allow Medical Marijuana Vending Machines to be placed around the city, in front of several of the dispensaries:
Good for California, I say. We all know the DEA has been shutting down Medical Marijuana dispensaries all over California, because they violate national laws, but now another organization wants to have a say in California’s state laws. A supranational organization. The International Narcotics Control Board, a U.N. affiliated organization, is claiming that the vending machines are illegal under international law.
“The International Narcotics Control Board is deeply concerned about reports that computerized vending machines to dispense cannabis (marijuana) have been put into operation in Los Angeles,” Philip O. Emafo, president of the board, said in a statement.
Not only are they “deeply concerned”, but they are also calling for the U.S. government to take action. Emafo said, “We know that the use of cannabis is illegal under federal law of the United States and we trust the authorities will stop such activities, which contravene the international drug control treaties.”
It has always been clear, by the actions of the federal government, that states within the United States are not free to make laws regarding substances that the federal government deems to be illegal. Now, however, something even more insidious seems to be happening. The U.N., an organization in which there are no elected officials representing the United States, is now able to have a say in the states laws.
Ron Paul was interviewed yesterday on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 by Soledad O’Brien. Here is the video:
