medicalpotballotEarly voting in this election is just days away with some states voting on marijuana reform. Whether states are voting on marijuana reform, medical or recreational, any success in these states would be a win for ending marijuana prohibition and the failed drug war.

Which states are voting on marijuana legalization?

California has a long history of voting on marijuana reform. The latest measure, Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act (AUMA), legalizes:

Keith Olbermann is Back to Say What the Media Will Not!

It seems the media has been on Donald J. Trump’s side from the beginning. They have let him get away with everything but murder. He’s been accused of a long list of things that the media hides from us on a daily basis and never confront him because they are too busy worried about Hillary’s health or her emails. It’s finally time that a hero to the left stands up and screams out for some common sense and morality in this election.

Keith Olbermann has made a video for GQ magazine online with a headline of 176 Reasons Donald Trump Shouldn’t Be President. In the debut episode of his new series, “The Closer with Keith Olbermann,” GQ’s Keith Olbermann tallies the most outrageous of Donald Trump’s offenses in what is now his 15-month assault on American democracy.

Watch the video and let us know in the comments which one of these 176 reasons the media should speak of the most instead of ignore.

Texas couple’s dog killed over Hillary Clinton yard sign

Trump supporter kills dogIf you thought the 2008 election was bad with a black man running for the White House then the thought of four more years of his legacy and a woman as President have really got the Trump supporters fired up. In Richardson, Texas a couple are mourning the loss of their dog who was allegedly poisoned to death after having ingested a deadly neurotoxin.

The death of Matt and Beth Steadman’s two-year-old shepherd mix, named Abby, has been part of a series of attacks in their community to the couple because of a political sign in their front yard supporting presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

hillary supporter“Hillary Clinton, I’m with her,” Steadman stated, but three signs endorsing the candidate have already been stolen. Many remember this happening back when Obama / Biden were running a tight race with many signs stolen but not all of the violent threats we are seeing now.

A note was left for the Steadmans stating “Hillary for Prison 2016” then the following day, the family’s vehicle was vandalized when someone poured bleach into the gas tank. Then came the worst of all the harassment when their dog Abby started shaking on Sunday. The couple rushed her to the vet, but on Tuesday their devoted little canine pal died; their veterinarian stating the dog had been poisoned.

No one knows for sure if their support for Clinton caused the vandalism of their new car or Abby’s death. No investigation is underway by police even though a report is on file. The couple will continue to support the candidate of their choice – isn’t that what America is all about? They hope someone comes forward and tells them who killed their dog and why. It’s not like Abby could even vote.

Rest in peace Abby.

Orlando Nightclub Shooting False flag?

Cody Agnew false flag fake orlando hoax shootingMost of the conspiracy theories have been put to rest by the likes of Snoopes.com and the Orlando Police. The OPD claim mass shooting at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, which left at least fifty people dead and scores more injured, was carried out by a single shooter identified as 29-year-old Omar Mateen. The Orlando Police Department confirmed that Mateen was killed during the incident, and that he was the lone gunman. With any tragedy you will have conspiracy theories running rampant such as the 9-11 false flag documentary and the Sandy Hook elementary school hoax groups. These people claim that the victims are all actors and it was a FBI or CIA operation for Obama to come and get your guns. While others claim that there were more shooters in the building at Pulse nightclub in Orlando and that there are two more terrorists on the loose as a start to hundreds of hoax stories.

The Survivor Who Trapped Others Inside
Luis Burbano admitted to trapping other revelers inside Pulse nightclub during the deadly shooting Saturday night thinking he was doing the right thing. Burbano exited the club via an ’employee’s only’ door that led to a hallway to an exit. On the other side of the door, he found himself crammed in with about 20 other people all struggling to move and make it to the exit so he said he shut the door behind him for a few seconds to give everyone more room
Another witness says Burbano actually shut the second door, trapping dozens of people inside the hallway when Omar Mateen was still shooting. ‘This guy is trying to prevent us from leaving. Maybe they’re working together,’ Gonzalez said. In another interview, Burbano spoke about his escape and talked about his survivor’s guilt.
Thoughts: We are not sure what he was thinking at the time it is hard to be inside someone’s head but he seemed genuine in the interview and it does seem that he is telling the truth. Some people just do dumb things because there is not much time to think. Continue reading Orlando Nightclub Shooting False flag?

orlandoshooterThe biggest, deadliest mass shooting in the United States took the lives of 49 people at the Pulse Nightclub in Orlando on June 12, 2016. This has brought gun control onto the minds of many. This is forcing a tipping point that even the NRA the biggest lobby in D.C. will start to see the light and at least help prevent terrorist watch list people buying guns not be able to do so. The entire nation is talking about it and hopefully we do not give up this time like we do after every other mass shooting here in America. We have put together a list of some of the best posts and facts on the issue. Comment below on what you want to add to the list.

guncontrolpenisDrunk Driving Vs. Gun Control
One Argument you will hear from republicans is them saying drunk driving still happens. A drunk driving accident is NOT the same as a mass murder by a maniac wielding an assault rifle. Do not suggest car buying control as a comparison to gun control. What a fool the person is that said this. Furthermore, The idea of stopping gun violence by giving more people guns is the logical equivalent of stopping drunk driving by buying everyone drinks.

ar15in5minutesAn 18 yr-old can walk around with an AR15 they bought in 5 minutes
For one you can walk into a gun store and buy an AR15 in 5 minutes? One 20-yr old named Cody Davis from thetab.com reported. He posted it two days after the worst mass shooting in American history from a local gun shop in Virginia which showed no hesitation in selling an AR-15. With the shop doing nothing wrong because of local laws they even suggested the AR15 in a salesman way to buy it. This is with No delay, No extensive background check, and on top of that a recently expired driver’s license. If a 20-year-old college student can walk into a gun shop and be out in minutes with an AR-15, and you believe nothing needs to be changed, you need help. All they did to the gun to make it legal for purchase for someone under 21 was add a butt to it. The shoulder stock or a butt lowers the buying age from 21 to 18. Another loophole in the long list of gun show and shop loopholes. Comparable to the 20 yr-old buying his in 5 minutes. Helen Ubinas, a reporter for Philly.com bought hers in just 7 minutes. This is not just in one gun shop. This is everywhere in America.

In one of the best The Daily Show episodes ever, John Oliver eviscerates a major gun control opponent with logic, precedent, facts, and reality.

Ruth GinsbergSupreme Court Justice Ruth Ginsburg on the Second Amendment:
“The Second Amendment has a preamble about the need for a militia…Historically, the new government had no money to pay for an army, so they relied on the state militias. And the states required men to have certain weapons and they specified in the law what weapons these people had to keep in their home so that when they were called to do service as militiamen, they would have them. That was the entire purpose of the Second Amendment.”

The argument that everyone should carry around a gun.
The NRA: “Everyone should have a gun. We’ll all be safer when everyone has a gun.”
Black Guy: “Hello, officer. So you’re aware, I have a gun, and a license to carry said gun.”

But, Justice Ginsburg explains, “When we no longer need people to keep muskets in their home, then the Second Amendment has no function, its function is to enable the young nation to have people who will fight for it to have weapons that those soldiers will own. So I view the Second Amendment as rooted in the time totally allied to the need to support a militia. So…the Second Amendment is outdated in the sense that its function has become obsolete.”
