War on canabis

this is a stupid war that the cops can't and will not ever win , the only reason it is still going on is cause they (the government) steal so much money from us harless pot smokers and they take great pride in distroying peoples lives over a harmless herb , it's called a "war on drugs" NOT herb , who is running this country anyway? hitler?? we the people need to take back our country from the boobs in the government if we all stand up together and say ENOUGH!!! we might have a chance. What are they going to do? throw us all in jaiul? there arn't enough jails in the country to do that

COPS (Criminals On Patrol)... Breaking the Law to Protect It!

Yes, the purveyors of gods & gov'ts are truely delusional evil criminals & idiots.... they are your deadly enemy... wishing to kill or incarcerate you and me for daring to know more and speaking out!

Treating dogmatic people that wish to kill or incarcerate you like dogs is my rule of thumb... DO NOT tolerate the Intolerant & treat all COPS like Criminals on Patrol!

You state 'we the people need to take back our country... and stand up together'... I agree wholeheartedly!

That's why able bodied citizens are supposed to learn self-defense, join their local militia, and exercise their right of self-defense.

To protect yourself & loved ones from the army of criminal agents that the purveyors of gods & gov'ts employ inorder to make themselve more equal is your highest calling as a citizen.

Until these orwellian assholes, which have infected every aspect of society, are eradicated and put down like the infected rabid dogs they are, we are not safe in our own homes!

Go 'Green Panthers' and clean them out!
