My Politics

I've voted for the Libertarians the last 10 elections for President. I do not believe in the Republinuts or the Democraps, or, the big media that supports them.

Because of the above - my views, IMO, are the real independent; THE `Eagle' views, and not the `centrist' `independent' views of those that alternate between the Jackass and the Elephant.

Thanks for checking out my politics blog.

What IF Pot IS Performance Enhancing?

Decades Ago, there was a High Times magazine cover that had a question posed to a baseball star - the question was something like - If Bowie Kuhn had 100 dollars for every ball player that smoked pot what would he be - the answer - a rich man.

I start today's essay off with that little ancedote about the natural plant many in the country use daily as medication - or - for even the forbidden side of usage `recreation'. But, the real super secret side of usage - is the `esoteric' side of pot. The seeming `enhancement' of food. The seeming `enhancement' of music. Indeed, the seeming `enhancement' of enjoyment itself. It's really quite a remarkable, below the surface in mentions, `benefit' - one that few if any legal drugs offer - an enhancement to consciousness.

Indeed, one of the often mentioned `qualitative' benefits for smokers - is a clarity of mind. A oneness focus.

Isn't that `oneness focus' - something that athletes use for success; a side benefit of usage? Especially for athletes at the very top of their sport?

Wouldn't it be ironic if one day a sophisticated system really did ban usage due to it's potential mind benefits - the unfair advantage it gives for concentration? In a fortean world like ours - don't be surprised.

Are Wall Street speculators driving up gasoline prices? http://www.miamiherald.com/business/nation/story/1057972.html Will this be another example where the only way to make money is in commodities?

Finally, a little humor and tease to end your stay - I'd love to hear your comments.

    You mean "anecdote." I don't want an antidote for weed.
