Re: “EPD Retracts Plans for Homeless Meal Voucher System

I find it absolutely disgusting that EPD would even consider a program that uses starvation as a punishment tool. Can you say, "obvious human rights violation" boys and girls? But then again, EPD has quite the reputation for human rights violations.

Re: “Eureka Police Seek New Leverage Against Homeless on Third Street

" it looked like a neighborhood people had given up on.
No, Cap'n... it's PEOPLE (you know, humans- like you and me) that people have given up on.

I was in Seattle recently, and I saw homeless people. They have respect for their city and its people. They pick up litter and throw it in the trash. They panhandle, but not in your face. They say 'please' and 'thank you'.
Some of them steal, but so do bankers and Naomi Judd. They have problems with drugs and alcohol. They have pasts.
The difference between here and there? Seattle feeds, clothes, and respects its people. They can take a shower. They can wash their clothes. They can sleep at night, sit in a park, share a joint, walk their dog- without police harassment.
Another 'move-along' campaign won't help the situation any more than the last one did. Helping them won't create more problems, but harassing people with nothing left to lose is unwise. But the mayor and the police want the problems to grow, so they can ask for more funding.
And where does that funding come from? You. And me. Hate and greed. Us and them. Haves and have-nots. These ideals make up the culture of our lawmakers and the street gang that enforces them.

Such a 'Christian' society we have here. I bet your Master Satan is proud.

Re: “They've Got Soul

Sure, you'll be in compliance with all local, state, and federal laws when you sell out our communities to New York based speculators and land grabbers. It's completely legal to profit from the housing market's instability. You may even pay your 'fair share' of taxes. The charitable donations improve your image with a good tax write-off as a bonus.
Meanwhile, the American Dream of owning a home (and maybe an acre or five of land) is alive and well for anybody with a couple million to spare. Which is not us. A 'fixer' runs for $250-500k these days. The 'sweat equity' will cost, well... Have you seen the movie 'The Money Pit'?

Re: “We lost the war

That's exactly the people that our government is working for- realtors and developers. And Big Tobacco. They don't work for the people; they never have.

Re: “Big Brands

Not surprising in the least. Bill Gates is a longtime legalization advocate. Microsoft money has gone to organizations such as NORML, Seattle Hempfest, Initiative 502 (WA state weed legalization), as well as funding the construction and maintenance of the Seattle Public Library.

Re: “What's up, Doc?

I recently lost a dear friend to cancer. It is a horrible way to die- and a horrible life during radiation and chemo. More access to strains containing Delta-2-THC-A, a CBD that actively attacks cancer cells, may have saved her. It definitely would have improved her quality of life. Even our knowledge of this CBD comes from research that was done illegally. If caught, these folks who are trying to cure cancer would be branded as felons and could be in prison for the rest of their lives. For curing cancer.

Cannabis should be legal. And free.
Don't you think enough people are profiting from our pain?

Re: “Buying in

As long as cannabis remains connected with cash, there will be problems. The ICBC good for businessmen, but is bad for individuals who want to smoke their pot and be left alone. But this is just the beginning. Phillip Morris et al. is not even the endgame. You can bet your last trichome that Monsanto has a representative there. Covertly, no doubt.

Monsanto is putting their filthy greedy fingers into our crops. Their GMOs have affected every American food crop, destroyed the lives and livelihoods of countless small farmers, and killed nearly half of the bees.

And now they are creating new GMOs for cannabis. Next, they will patent these GMOs. Then, they will grow their GMO crops upwind of your crops. Their males will fill the air with altered cannabis pollen. When your crop goes to seed, you will then be in possession of a patented organism that you didn't pay for. Monsanto agressively sues farmers for copyright infringement. And the system, which has been bought and paid for since "the deregulator" George H. W. Bush was in D.C., will invariably decide in favor of the copyright holder, and award them what they ask for.

Can you guess what comes next?

Next, you will be living in your car because what Monsanto wants is land. YOUR land. And what Monsanto wants, Monsanto gets.
