Re: “Search & Suspend

Dear people; I went to the Arcata Pool and outside stood a well mannered gentleman hold a sign "High Schools are Prisons" It seems someone complained and he has been visited by the Police twice. Once to discourage his efforts to tell the truth as he sees it. Is this related to the fascist school administration, I dunno. Quacks like a duck? Is is open season for the "control freaks?

Re: “Unexpected Turbulence

dear people; re; Unexpected Turbulence art. Some say the county building dept. is a bunch of good ol boyz who want to impose their city values and run people off the land . There's no money in people living frugally in the country. They want to scrape the "little people" off the land and have their "buddies" built mansions so the assessor can tax the hell out of you. IMHO> visit these sites for more. Power to the People! g.

Re: “Caveat Grower

Compassion for the Police Yes, they are a minority that suffers from prejudice. People sometimes hate them w/o knowing each officer as a unique person who hasn't chosen the most creative job they could. Part of an officer's training is to look for certain behaviors that tend to make them suspicious of their fellow citizens and it's kind of negative programing. It's hard to punch out and not take this psyche home. Some weekend! And.. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. To catch a thief you must think like a thief? And when you think how society uses the police to harass the mentally ill , who are routinely dumbed out on the street. And then the question of the "wisdom" of using the "law" to change the drug culture. Soon we may see the backlash of the present "War on Drugs". Using police resources to enforce prohibition has never worked well. Is it wise to use limited resources to arrest, expend court/prison resources on a pot smoker who probably paid taxes, had a job and was otherwise a law obeying citizen, who now has difficulty getting a tax paying job and probably goes into the underground economy to never pay taxes again? Some of this will come to an end with legalization of marijuana. Vote for better use of your dollar. Maybe treatment for people who truly have a drug problem. Not incarceration. Not such a radical idea. Another place for compassion. And visit this site; Thanks. g.
