Do You Believe Politicians Who Can't Back Up Their Claims?

Losing a battle, but winning the war. Safe access to medical marijuana on Palm Avenue, soon?

Last November over 57% of voters in Imperial Beach accepted as truth - a less than transparant - campaign of misinformation, fear and intemidation by rejecting Proposition S - a fully transparant - local citizen's ballot initiative clearly written to provide local safe access to medical marijuana "for qualified patients only".

So, what if local politicians only used the words they could back up? What would happen if a local politician whose title is 'The Honorable', were to tell the truth - the whole truth - and nothing but the truth about local safe access to medical marijuana "for qualified patients only"?

Well, I'm very pleased to annouce that - we will soon see!

Two nights ago, at our monthly meeting of the San Diego Chapter of Americans for Safe Access, we were honored to hear truth from the newly elected mayor of San Diego, the honorable Bob Filner. For over thirty-five minutes, the former congressmen and mayor of the 2nd largest city in the State - 8th largest in the nation, discussed supporting local safe access - like no other sitting mayor ever has!

So far, San Diego CityBeat's Dave Maass is the only reporter to release a story so far, the mayor had so much to say that the media appears to have no idea where to begin reporting on his statements - or even where to begin.

In part, San Diego's new mayor promised; 

To call for and attend 'mass demonstrations' against Bonnie Dumanis' continuing "persecution" of medical marijuana patients who provide safe access in San Diego.

To testify in court for "persecuted" medical marijuana patients.

To get an ordinance drawn up and to the council - in a few weeks - and that he believes he has a five-vote majority lined up.

To direct City Attorney Jan Goldsmith to stop going after medical-marijuana collectives.

To lobby the U.S. Department of Justice and the White House to address the issue under federal law.

There's more, much more... watch the video

at least our state can collect some tax revenue - even if ib shuts itself out...and our cali farmers, retailers, and consumers can prosper... when this is all over i'm going to go back and force reparation payments to our cali farmers and retailers that have lost billions of dollars because they've been wrongly persecuted and denied their rights to prosper in a capitalist society... everyone is proud of their poor choices ...until they have to pay for them....

if mark or anyone else is still 'confused' on how laws & regulations are correctly utilized in a capitalists country or the difference between a plant and a drug i will meet them in person ... and anyone that's ever met me will attest that 15 minutes of me in their face is all it will take to eliminate the 'confusion' in their brain... this one issue alone costs the state of cali billions of dollars every year....millions lost in tax revenue and millions more wasted on law/courts/prisons.... and it causes no harm to self or society... a person with average intelligence should be able to analyze the results of the last 40 years and realize that keeping weed illegal is nothing more than a marketing scam that's costing the tax payer billions of dollars ... there is a mentality in this country that being ignorant is an acceptable position - it is not and it will not longer be tolerated... this is a new day...no more 'truthiness' ... if a person doesn't have intellectual ability to comprehend the issues then i will explain them ... but it's not going to be the fun game they're used to playing.... email me mark...put your big boy panties on and meet me in person ... or smarten up ...that's your choice...

15 minutes ....you, me, and a camera running so i can record stupid leaving your body.... i'm a busy person, but it will only take me 15 minutes to eliminate your stupid... and you don't get to claim ignorance because ignorance implies lack of knowledge and all of the knowledge is available, but you can't process the information to come to the correct conclusion...and that's make you stupid.... and if you run your mouth about less government control and more personal freedoms and 'i don't want to pay taxes' then you're a stupid hypocrite ... no, there is no debate .,...there is no other answer....you're just stupid....

how about if you bring your arsenal of weapons...will that make you feel brave enough to stand in the same room with an old woman? how about if you bring another guy just like yourself...two against one...do you think you'll have the courage to repeat your stupid if you're standing there with someone that also follows blindly... what about 9 other guys...10 to 1...do you think that will make your stupid any less stupid? nope...it's still stupid....and if everyone in the room is stupid it doesn't make you right....it makes you all stupid.... every day for the rest of your life you'll rehearse in your head what you would say to my face ...if you only had the balls....
