Tips on cannabis being handed out in schools. ("I get high with a little help from my friends")

I’ve been off line and ill the last few days. In fact, I should not even be here now. Really.
No need for tea and sympathy and please hold the flowers but, I really hurt. Have had a doctor come to the house as I couldn’t get in to the clinic and am just too sick to bus it in.  Chest infection and some strained chest muscles cause by a severe and constant cough.  Feel like what I imagine a limp rag might feel like if it could feel anything.

Who cares?

Nobody but the reason I’m sharing my puny medical ills is because when I came downstairs this morning and got the paper off the floor (it’s delivered through the mail slot in the front door), intending to read and try and relax with a hot cup of tea and honey, some headlines immediately caught my eye and naturally I just couldn’t go back to bed where I belong.

Some of these stories are so dumb, so looney tunes, so unbelievable there wasn’t any way I could ignore them or put off posting them until tomorrow, because I’m not certain I’ll be on line tomorrow.  No kidding friends and neighbors.  I feel pukey.

So then, because some stories raise my ire and do not make me feel warm and friendly, I’m trying to tie my BLM (blood pressure meter) to yours. Why should I suffer alone?  As an example, this EDITORIAL COMMENT by a Conservative. My gosh a conservative?  Yeah.  Some of you will say he is merely one in name only.  But honestly that isn’t true either.  But his swooning over RamaLama is just too much.  Try and read as many comments as you can.  I may not agree with all but they do make a point.  Of course, I don’t buy it and I kinda doubt you will.

Something tells me that I share a blood pressure meter with the Tiger.

There’s also a story about .. well guess. Our new fearless leader is quoted in a headline today saying that “THE US WILL LEAD THE WORLD IN GOING GREENER AND CLEANER.” He also took the time to take a swipe at President Bush and his policy on the green issue.  TheOne is going to fall in line with the Europeans
on Climate Change. 

Do I want to come home to the USA when the time arrives to do so?  Will I still have a country?  Jeesh!

Gary McKinnon believes in little green men – but it doesn’t make him a terrorist
Americans who want a harmless hacker extradited from Britain must be from a different planet, says Boris Johnson.

By Boris Johnson
Conservative Mayor of London

Way to go, Mr President. I think we can all agree that it has been a cracking first week. Apart from the swearing-in glitch – which was entirely the fault of that judge – I have supported just about everything that Barack Obama has done.

I liked the speech, and the promise that America is ready to lead again. It is good news that he is getting rid of Guantanamo and water-boarding and extraordinary rendition, all the dread apparatus of the Bush regime.

But before we all get too misty-eyed about the new era, and before Barack devotes himself entirely to the meltdown of the banks, there is one more thing in his diplomatic in-tray. There is one last piece of neocon lunacy that needs to be addressed, and Mr Obama could sort it out at the stroke of a pen.

In a legal nightmare that has lasted seven years, and cost untold millions to taxpayers both here and in America, the US Justice Department is persisting in its demented quest to extradite 43-year-old Londoner, Gary McKinnon.

To listen to the ravings of the US military, you would think that Mr McKinnon is a threat to national security on a par with Osama bin Laden. According to the Americans, this mild-mannered computer programmer has done more damage to their war-fighting capabilities than all the orange-pyjama-clad suspects of Guantanamo combined.

And how? He is a hacker. He hacked into the Pentagon, he hacked into the army, the navy, and the air force, and the Americans say he temporarily paralysed US Naval Weapons station Earle, by deleting some files.

In their continuing rage at this electronic lèse-majesté, the Americans want us to send him over there to face trial, and the possibility of a 70-year jail sentence. It is a comment on American bullying and British spinelessness that this farce is continuing, because Gary McKinnon is not and never has been any kind of threat to American security. He had only one reason for fossicking around in the databanks of Pentagon computers, and it had nothing to do with the war on terror or indeed the military capabilities of any country on earth.

Mr McKinnon believes in UFOs, and he is one of the large number of people who think that there is a gigantic conspiracy to conceal their existence from the rest of us, and that this conspiracy is organised by the US government.

Here is one of the comments made by readers in reply to Bad Boris.

Well, Boris, either you are a member of the MMGW orthodoxy and sitting in the GoreBore pocket or yoiu missed the Messiah’s latest commitment.

Out goes Bush’s eminently rational scepticism and in comes the whole Gore/IPCC, no holes barred, bring on the new Kyoto package.

Well, in doing so, he will ruin his country and its people, who for the moment worship him as if there is no tomorrow.

Barack Obama promises to lead world on climate change
President Barack Obama has promised that the US will lead the world on climate change and make cleaner energy a priority.

HOW GWEEN WUZ MY VALLEY

“We will make it clear to the world that America is ready to lead. To protect our climate and our collective security, we must call together a truly global coalition,” said Mr Obama, before signing three executive orders and memorandums on environmental issues.

In a dig at Mr Bush, who was accused of subverting science for ideological reasons, he added: “My administration will not deny facts - we will be guided by them.”

Hillary Clinton, the new Secretary of State, meanwhile picked Todd Stern, a veteran of the Kyoto Protocol talks, as her envoy for climate change, in a clear signal of intent to world leaders aiming to reach a successor to Kyoto this year.

The protocol was drafted late on in the Clinton administration only for Mr Bush to reject its environmental standards as bad for American businesses.

Mr Obama set out a bold vision of an energy-independent US, a goal he described as critical for “our security, our economy and our planet”.

Well now, apparently there are only ONE set of “facts” to be given credence.  The “facts” that he approves over anything else put before him. You either agree or are in denial and deserving of ridicule.  How typical of the left.  Oh boy.  How many more years?

Now then ... for sheer over the top MoonBat looney tunes insanity .... I offer you this below the fold.  I’m not sure I follow the logic here. Is there any?

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
