elite lemonade 3 of 4


ELITE LEMONADE 3

Prior to Prohibition, any citizen was free to place pretty much whatever in his own body ( I’m sure the more religious states had laws on alcohol prior to the Constitutional amendment-which by the way was legally added so all of you 3%’ers getting a raging boner for that document should take a moment and reflect on that as well as everything else they did in It’s name-but since those areas were rural it wasn’t like you couldn’t make your own easy enough ) to include yummy cocaine derivative substances such as Coca-Cola.  You could walk into a store and buy any hard drug, hell, any military firearm, without identification.  I don’t even think they had much in the way of ID back then, either.  Once Prohibition ended, the FedGov had had its first taste of a dictatorship since Lincoln’s War Of northern Oppression, and they weren’t going to give it up.  Gun control was started, Gold Control was implemented and the war on drugs started.  Because a few Mexican laborers or Negro Jazz players used drugs, suddenly everyone had to stop doing so.

*

Don’t ask me why, unless it was all an elaborate cover-up to just make one drug illegal.  Marijuana.  Just as Rockefeller was behind Prohibition ( even after the Monopoly break-up, he had controlling interests in all the “new and improved” “independent” companies.  By outlawing ethanol, as well as any drinking alcohol to cover up this deed, cars no longer had a fuel choice and had to use gasoline only ), DuPont and Hearst were behind making hemp illegal.  No one cared if societies riff-raff drugged themselves into an early grave ( eugenics was pioneered here, not in Nazi Germany, and many elites were openly for sterilizing the undesirables ), but a synthetic fiber and newsprint monopoly were in danger.  Just about the time a machine for automated hemp fiber separation was patented, the war on drugs began.  Coincidence, my dimpled white hairy ass. 

*

So why, over three generations later, would anyone in power want to legalize marijuana?  Is it because we are now more tolerant and want to keep users out of overcrowding jails?  That has already been happening almost nationwide.  Yes, during the ‘60’s harsh marijuana laws were used to persecute social disruptive elements ( once upon a time in Texas, ONE joint could get you life in prison.  But by all means, believe Beck when he implores you to move there ), but by and large weed has been decriminalized slowly but surely over the decades, even as other drugs got worse in sentencing.  This probably was basically just the FedGov focusing limited resources on the headline and promotion worthy items ( alcohol and drug prohibition works to make both the public and private sectors wealthy ).  It certainly wasn’t because the prohibition was needed by the original players.  Both are overseas now.  Paper and synthetic fibers are where the labor is cheaper and the taxes are lower.

*

Since homegrown hemp fiber using American labor will never threaten Chinese items profitability, it no longer really matters if hemp is legalized or not ( the other drugs stay illegal to prop up government asset forfeiture programs, the Prison Industry, and etcetera ).  And it is a nice profit center for local governments.  Since all those cops fighting the War On Drugs need to retire, weed taxes can prop up the bankrupted retirement funds.  This isn’t a granted freedom but a monetary necessity.  Now that the private corporations have bled the taxpayers prior to moving overseas, their original profit incentive no longer applicable, the restrictions can be relaxed.

*

Is taxation being reduced a sign of increased personal freedom?  You might argue with me that taxes are at an all time high, and you might be right.  As far as purchasing power being eroded by both unemployment and increased taxes ( mainly sin taxes and property taxes ).  But taxes should be far higher right now, as far as the amount needed to pay for what the government spends.  Okay, the rich have a far lower tax rate than ever before.  The middle class are being squeezed out of existence by triple property taxes.  And the poor pay a disproportional amount in alcohol and cigarette taxes ( if you smoke two packs a day and work twenty hours a week, your tobacco costs alone are 25% of your gross income of which up to half are taxes ).  But overall, it could be far worse.

*

You don’t get a $20 trillion deficit because you are charging too much in taxes ( and that is JUST federal.  Plenty of state laws “prohibit” deficits but look at all the local bonds that need to be paid off ).  So, are we the winners of a free nation, unburdened by too many taxes?  No, if you look at our historical tax rate.  We used to pay a yearly stipend, small enough that a nation of barterers rather than income earners could pay it, with import duties paying most of the taxes ( and very few could come up with cash to pay for too many imported items, so it wasn’t exactly a hidden tax as much as it was a protective border to encourage national industry ).  Now 50-75% of our income goes to taxes.  But really, it could be 100% and it wouldn’t be enough to pay for empire and the breads and circuses.  So in that aspect we are more “free”.  But does it benefit us, or the elites?  Up until a year or so ago, by any and all means ( debt, two job families, downwards wages through immigration ) we needed everyone and more everyone’s every year to consume.

*

Consumers were the only industry outside of government ( and they are also consumers ) which constitutes the entire American economy ( we aren’t even doing as well exporting Hollywood movies or farm products as we used to ).  More deficits and less taxes were just a way to free up for consumption money.  Our dollar is now worthless, and not because Obammy was a socialist, but because it is far better to borrow half the yearly budget than to double taxes.  More spending cash equals more corporate profits ( and government doesn’t suffer as they get ever more spending money-just from borrowing rather than taxes ).  The government benefits from increased budgets, the corporations sell more product and the bankers create more debt either way.  Tomorrow we finish up.

  1. Now the DEA all on its own has declared CBD oil to be classed the same as Heroin ! Sounds like the pharmaceutical industry does not want any competition from the many benefits of hemp oil. Even though it has absolutely no ability to get you stoned. Just makes skin cancers go away and helps arthritis pain etc.
    Since when does the DEA make law ? Seems to me that Congress is the only one supposed to do that !
    Time to end the damned war on drugs and tax the sale instead !

  2. The problem with the government borrowing its money is that eventually it has no other lenders, except itself, and it has to print its way clear of default and cause such hyperinflation that cash becomes useless.

  3. Jim I wish I could find the old story. It was Binladen didn't destroy the Twin towers. His blow was taking over Afghanistan and burning the poppy fields. It cut production from 4,000+ long tons to 200 and had a economic loss of 600 billion per year if not restored. The writer broke it down as transport, whole sale, retail, law enforcement, lawyers, courts, prison, and bankers. We have restored production to 7,000 long tons . Now we have to let weeders be legal as heroin is more profitable overall.
    As always FOLLOW THE MONEY . one county near here had 26 O-D in 12 days so now the mortician's benefit to.

    1. Poppies have always made more sense than anything else-with the added bonus of the geopolitical position. That economic breakdown would have been interesting. Oh, well. I can't find 90% of what I read and want to go back to find.

    2. thanks, gary.
      i've always been told to follow the money but i don't usually know where it is.
      usually told this in relation to oil and oil pipeline right-of-ways.
      perhaps one day the truth will be known to all of us. i hope so!
      thinking of the dead and maimed soldiers who are used and thrown away by the evil-doers behind the wealth.

  4. I am not in the habit of paying for debt(s) incurred by others, and have shaped my life accordingly. I don't earn as much now as I used to but I have ZERO stolen from me. I suggest everybody do similarly.

    They don't care about you, nor should they. And their malicious attitude about you means they will do to you whatever it takes for them to survive, again, you don't matter.

    If your life has any value then it is you and you alone that must provide that value and you don't get there by supporting them.

    Once you realize implicitly that the world is slammed with criminals it becomes infinitely easier to maneuver around the myriad of obstacles. Being oblivious or overtly scared is a painful way to go through life. Your choice.

    1. Well, technically you have a lot stolen from you every day with taxes/monopolies you can't avoid, but point taken with the philosophical defense.

  5. Super intersting post.

    That Rockefeller guy was also very much interested in Social Engineering, he was also behind the 1938 "War of the World" very fishy "hoax"

    2. your mane is glorious today [and every day].
      you notice how guys who reach great wealth--such as bill gates-- suddenly exert their god complexes by telling us, the great unwashed, how to live our lives?
      or they tell us that billions of us must die so that they and a servant class are all that is left?
      they are such shits! [which is an insult to perfectly good and useful manure.]
      one of them was ao charlie rose years ago and said american kids needed to learn, literally, howto do such jobs as polish the brass on his yacht!
      if i could have reached his neck through the tv i would have strangled him instantly.
      told my child if it ever came down to polishing his brass, just throw him to his cousins, the sharks, and take over the yacht.
      american kids and all others need to learn as much of the truth as possible and live like ghostsniper.
      that will pull some of the rug out from under the evil-doers.

    3. The poor will do as they always have-wait until it is too late, then kill the bastards, then accept new rich guys as leaders after a short time. All the fault of agriculture. I'll have no problem raiding farms in the future, if I make it that far.

  6. All Empires choose their own demise. The US Empire has chosen debt (with apologies to Bill Bonner and "friend")

    See what I did there? I insinuated that Bill Bonner is gay (not that there's anything wrong with that)

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
