Re: “Maketa says he'll hire 20 deputies

shirk was out on a meet n greeter a couple months ago, visiting the ramah town board during a regular meeting... ramah is a town of ~250 people in northern el paso county, out on highway 24 (platte ave, east about one hour...)

among the charming things mr shirk proudly boasted he was in support of and would change in his (potential) administration was the very proud point that he would get rid of el paso county sheriff deputies and county jail guards, and hire private contractors in replacement, because they are cheaper...

good luck el paso county...i'm five minutes above you in the next town past ramah.

we have the claw of the highlands ranch group - the martin, lockheed, let me have your property and mineral rights carl rovey-ville stench - from the front range there grabbing east, reaching and clawing their way through douglas and now full out digging into our county, elbert.

we feel douglas and el paso county's pain in elbert first hand, too...no matter how far, far east we are in the county.

with the ever growing overtaking of colorado springs and el paso county, the booming tea party movement in central elbert county, and with the ace in the hole pawn - prev us house rep mark hillman busy, busy ranching and plowing hell up, in from his state line home out east in burlington down i-70 and s.e. through all the oil and water rich property between you all and him - we should be able to kiss the central front range through the east central colo state line goodbye with this or the next election if we are not careful... probably for good.

"no matter who gets elected" is a freaking farce. we all need to be so careful with voting; we are truly outnumbered in this area of the state; and they are moving forward with their own plan around us all.

from colo springs to highlands ranch, a northern boundry down i-70, and a southern boundry east from the springs through the ark valley to the state line...

the arkansas valley. the next conquest... this is the area john mc cain wanted to give water rights to arizona to during the '08 campaign. said the people of the area basically "don't use their water enough to claim right to it, and arizona needs it."

please be careful el paso. east central is trying to, also.

Re: “Local MMJ community grapples with HB 1284

great comments, below!!

...what's wrong with marijuana in so that it is now illegal?

1. "The Hurst family" (they owned trees/paper/publishing). MJ was a simply a huge product threat to the family business and Hurst played a big part first getting mj classified as illegal back in the 20's or 30's.

2. "Those damn Mexicans". After bringing and/or inviting all kinds of Mexican immigrant workers to south-west America to do who knows what kind of jobs (probably farming or irrigation work) due to lack of workers there at the time, "America" shortly after decided that they were tired of the immigrants 'taking up their space' and then 'taking their jobs' that American's had later migrated down to and for. With that it was decided that the easiest way to get rid of them was to outlaw mj, which was their vice of choice, and was starting to catch on through the American populations locally, also. This was also in the 30's, somewhere.

3. “Saddle up to the bar, boys!”. After years of prohibition, mj and opiates were becoming pretty popular. I’m not positive, but mj laws were either still relaxed as compared to today, or were still being first formed with the Hurst and Mexican issues at hand, also. Lord knows it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that mj was a treat to the liquor industry, and after prohibition was repealed mj’s days were slim at best. I’m about positive there was legislation linked to this time frame (from the emerging liquor industry lobby), as well.

4. "Hemp for America!". There was a big push by the Government to American farmers for hemp production in the 40’s during World War II. If you look hard enough you can even find government ‘propaganda’ films like were played at movie houses before the main feature appealing this. They begged American farmers to grow hemp for the petroleum, paper, fiber for cloth and rope, etc., etc. values; and then just as quickly after the war, outlawed that too. Much too much threat to all of those industries from hemp to keep it a legal crop for the American farmer and product for the country; especially, the threat to the growing oil industry.

5. "Those damn Negros!" In the 50's with the emerging civil rights beginnings, the black community started melding with the white community and started to "aaaah!", get along and find common ground in discriminations black America was being subject to. In those relationships mj was being used more and more frequently through young America, and the black music and cultures starting "aaaah!" becoming part of the young white culture also. Rock music was flourishing, night clubs were booming with white and black patrons, mj was being used more than the previous generation, and America was becoming one around 'love for your neighbor.' America needed a good slap of 'Refer Madness' in their faces to help keep the division of mj from the mainstream cultures, and to help keep the division of the black and white youth at least a question in mainstream minds.

6. "Peace, man!" Then, of course, their were those f'n world loving, peace loving, neighbor loving "baby boomer hippies" of the 60's. Lord knows we could not promote, encourage or certainly not allow such a movement of kind, caring, realistic personalities to continue, bloom, and oh God possibly raise children with their same values. Lord knew we could not allow their base of movement and personality, mj, to continue, for sure. Make them (the hippies) 'bad, bad criminals' for their personal choices; 'bad, bad mj!' This is when mj got put to the high, Federal level class of controlled narcotic crime/quality that it is, in the late 60’s or early 70’s.

7. Now, of course, with outlawed mj we have the ‘war on drugs’ guaranteed to be ongoing; a possible ‘out to invade or take action on Mexico’ in our pocket for a rainy day if/when so desired; and, the most important, the threat mmj plays against the Almight pharmaceutical industry held at bay, as much and as long as possible.

...now who in their right mind would consider legalizing mj with all that at play???

Someone asked me once why i thought mj was illegal, and especially for so long and so harshly criminal (the Federal backing, ongoing). i told them what is simply the truth: i reached out to her arm and touched it gently and said "because we are the people who, when we see someone experiencing something wrong, or see something wrong in the world we are the one's to reach out and say 'that's not right; what can i do to help change that.'

...and, lord knows we can't have any of that b.s., in a sub-government controlled world; not even today!

Peace; like for real.
