Osama bin Lay-den
Flayed n spayed n
Head in a cool box
Took to Obama
To smirk and jerk off
But president’s jizz
Remember the trouble
When Clinton wiped his dick
On Monica’s dress after their
So how is Obama
s’posed to tell the world his
Spunk’s in bin Lay-den’s beard, oh
You think that’ll win him votes?
OMG, a sure-fire no!
Obama’s best bet is
To drop bin Laden’s head in
The presidential secret locked
Waste-paper trash bin.
Kick that to one side then
On nation-wide live TV
Tell all the nodding sheep
“We dumped his ass in the sea.”
If some folk don’t buy it
Who gives a fuck? See
It’s just another
At last, at long last, an American president has not only admitted to smoking marijuana, he’s thinks it’s better than booze!
Of course that was the Clinton “did he inhale?” question. But that was weak. Obama equated pot with cigarettes:
“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life,” he is quoted as saying in a New Yorker magazine article. “I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”
So there we have it: Obama has told his two daughters that smoking marijuana is “a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy”, but he hasn’t tried any of the “gateway drug” and “reefer addicted rapists”. He disapproves of dope because of its inherent dangers (for example, the risk of lung cancer that goes with smoking just about anything) but at the same time he disapproves of alcohol – in fact, it seems he disapproves of alcohol far more than pot!
Some US states are considering decriminalizing pot use. From the Guardian:
Marijuana remains illegal in the United States under federal law, but 21 US states allow or are about to allow medical marijuana use, and Colorado and Washington have decriminalised use of pot entirely. Alaska and the District of Columbia are considering following suit.
The Obama administration said last year that federal law enforcement will not target users in Colorado and Washington, as long as they comply with their respective states’ laws. The Department of Justice says it will not interfere with states’ efforts to regulate and tax marijuana provided they are able to meet a set of requirements, including keeping it from children and restricting its flow into other states.
Obama believes smoking marijuana is a “bad habit” but thinks legal penalties now fall disproportionately on minorities and that states legalising pot should go ahead with their plans, but he sees problems ahead for Colorado and Washington legislation. He’s leading from the front: but he knows that there are a lot of puritanical prohibitionists who will be difficult to get on board. Obama recognizes the anti-pot propaganda for what it is – a load of BS – but there are a lot of folk out there who still believe 60 years of demonisation of the issue. But don’t give up Obama: this could be the best thing to come from his lack-lustre presidency!
A very quickie blog entry today, to let you know about what Courage To Resist have planned for today and how you can join in!
Courage To Resist is an organization that supports “GI resisters” in their attempts to oppose the war in Afghanistan and to reveal the truth about the illegal war in Iraq. Here’s an excerpt from the email they sent me:
We need your help to support Bradley and all GI resisters!
You might already have been a regular supporter of Courage to Resist. Or, you may have first heard of us in regards to our support of accused Wikileaks whistle-blower Bradley Manning. Thank you for your interest, and hopefully financial support as well.
White House call-in today, March 28
We invite all supporters to join the Progressive Democrats of America for a call-in campaign today, Monday, March 28th in support of Bradley Manning. Please call the switch board between 9 am-5 pm Eastern (6am-2pm Pacific) at 202-456-1111.
According to my calculations, 9am-5pm Eastern is 2pm-10pm GMT. So, if you want to show support for Bradley Manning, or for the many veterans who were arrested on the 19 and 20 March for their acts of civil disobedience, leading marches to the White House demanding Manning’s release and an end to the war, give the White House a call today. I do hope this action won’t cause the White House switchboard to become jammed and melt down, but if that does happen… oh dear, what a shame.
While I’m on the subject of Bradley Manning, I’d just like to say that Manning is a dickhead of colossal dimensions. Why on earth did Manning feel the need to tell Adrian Lame-o about what he’d done? Wikileaks’ anonymizing techniques are pretty robust – there’s a very good chance that Manning would have never been unmasked as the leak if he’d been able to keep his ridiculous ego under control. But no, he just had to tell someone – and of all the people in the world to spill his guts to, he chose Adrian Lmao: a known snitch and a member of the generation of “hackers” that denounced each other to the Secret Service/Feds on a regular basis
Unfortunately, Manning did mouth off about it to Lamo, and as a result he’s now rotting in the brig and facing a possible death sentence. This is completely out of proportion with what he did (exactly how many US personnel or assets were placed in danger by the leaks? Exactly none, of course – all such sensitive info was redacted before publication, meaning the only effect was a huge amount of egg on the US military and government’s face). So show your support for Manning – call the White House and make sure Obama’s people realise just how over-the-top his henchmen’s actions have been.
