Sunday Sermonette

FRANTIC (definition)
A Democrat in a whorehouse with somebody else's credit card (that expires tomorrow).
Expect the attacks on the Trump Administration to reach to a more shrill and strident level of hysteria.

The soaring stock market and investor confidence under President Trump has created $6 TRILLION in value. The Democrat Party is up against a wall and they are desperate to find a way to blunt this success. If the sly, corrupt, nasty, elite media reported this fairly, it would be the end of everything for the Party of Barack and Hillary.

There are sour and cautious people who predict a 20% drop in stock prices across the board, but with $3+ trillion overseas coming back into the US economy after the tax cut and with more money being put in the hands of average Americans (most of whom don't know how to save anything) means that there will be more money invested and spent on Main Street.

Democrat leadership feel as though Karl Marx, Mephistopheles, and all of the icons that they've venerated for so long has abandoned them.

DOJ and Marijuana (a report)

Jesus Malverse, patron saint of Mexican-American
marijuana users
I have been approached by two law firms in San Diego (Sandy Eggo) California to help defend the marijuana sellers (many of which are funded by Mexican drug cartels) against the Trump DOJ, which may be turned loose against the Sanctuary State and it's most cherished institutions. Now that recreational marijuana is legal in California, they'd hoped to make a windfall.

Naturally, I find it amusing. More amusing still is my personal opposition to the legalization of marijuana. You may agree with me or disagree, who cares? My approach is a systemic one. They people I know who use a lot of marijuana are generally unproductive members of society. I don't see that it does any good (with the rare exception of anti-nausea meds) and it seems to create FAR more problems than it solves.

Saving drug cartels from the wrath of DOJ in a sanctuary state isn't what I do - even if I could do it. Selling marijuana may be legal in California but it's a federal felony and a conviction would land you in federal prison, inability to ever receive a security clearance, etc.

Some of those who hoped to cash in on the marijuana craze that would come with Californian legalization are praying hard to the statues of Jesus Malverde at various domestic and public shrines. 
Since this is a Sunday Sermonette, I try to cover some aspect of religious life - in this case, Mexican-Americans praying to a statue of Jesus Malverde that is made in China.
There was an occasion some years ago when I was working in Mexico where a friend from the US wanted a Jesus Malverde t-shirt. I scoured the public markets and flea markets in Guadalajara for Jesus Malverde paraphernalia. They were not to be had. T-shirt sellers directed me to the US. Most of the Jesus Malverde statues that you find in drug dealer homes are made in China. Such is the nature of commerce.

A Crisis in Oregon

Now that self-serve gasoline is an option in Oregon is an option, many residents are melting down at the thought that there might come a time when they would be called on to fill a gas tank. I've heard that the mere threat keeps them in Oregon.

Learning Sunday has a primer for those of you who fear the pump. Since it's Sunday, I thought this would be appropriate. Portland is the feminist capital of the nation. Men are encouraged to leave.

  1. Probably don't the eyes to see it. In Colorado haven't seen much negative impact with legalized pot. See more cars at the liquor stores than the two legal stores I pass. Open gang activity isn't as blatant as, say, five years ago.

    What is a bitch is neighboring states, especially Kansas. Last fall delivered a car to Missouri and was stopped three times for "speeding" and "lane violations". Every time the officer wanted to search the car.

    Wonderful invention, dash cams.

    1. Intoxicants in general cause problems because most mere mortals don't have the capacity to be moderate. It's true of alcoholic beverages, and marijuana.

      Almost every doper I've seen who used or trafficked in meth, cocaine, heroin, heavy hallucinogens (LSD, mushrooms, etc), Ecstasy (MDMA is often cocktail with ketamine, etc.), GBH (Floor wax stripper), or Angel Dust (horse tranq) also had marijuana with them. Rarely did they have a short dog/screw top of Ripple. Make of that what you will.

    1. American Africans/African Americans don't seem to care, do they?

  3. I sort of like the typo "Malverse". You could probably make some sort of SF (science fiction, not green beanies) story based on that.

    1. A traveler from a distant galaxy enters the malverse and lands on Earth. That would make sense.

  4. Over 50 years ago I recognized that pot smokers were prone to sit around talking about all the stuff they were going to do, but never did. In my misspent youth I stuck to uppers and actually got stuff done.

    Legalizing pot is just a way to further anesthetize an already dumbed down lazy populace.

    1. The smokey haze that pot puffers live in is entirely progressive. Isn't in Barack himself, who organized a pot smoking club (when it was a felony) while in high school.

  5. Re Oregonians, let them rot in place... At least they won't migrate this way...LOL

    1. You never hear of Porlandians immigrating to AZ or TX. I can't imagine why.

    2. Not all Oregonians are like Portlandians, just like not all Californians are like... well you know, or all Texans are like Austinians...

    3. Not at all. I have family who live in Portland(ia) and they're as conservative as I am.

  6. If the Clinton's don't go to prison after THIS investigation then it is a fact that there is no longer fair/equal justice in the US and a revolution to wipe out the Deep State would be justified. This whole pile of shit goes all of the way back to the top, Obama, Hillary, and minions like Lynch and Holder

    1. There isn't fair/equal justice. The Clintons have been running roughshod on the country. I have no idea what their body count is, never mind Hillary and Slick Willy's other felonies.

      They clearly bought the FBI

  7. The best thing about pot is how smart it makes you (see "hippies"). Saying that, maybe it should be legal and natural selection can take its course.

    Think of the tax benefit. It could go towards the WALL and prosecuting HILLARY. Saying that, we'd be even more inundated with useless stoners.

    Solution. Pot is legal if you live in a work camp, building the wall, and running prosecute Hillary admin.

    Lock her up.

    1. It would be appropriate to earmark all criminal narcotics fines and civil forfeiture for use in building a wall to stop them in the future.

      Progs say that the wall won't work. I disagree. It will stop a significant volume of narcotics and illegal alien trafficking.

    2. Build The Wall.

      And lock her up, obviously.

  8. I'd never even heard of malverse before, but the idea of using the legal marijuana tax proceeds to fund the Wall sounds very attractive to me. As a whole, I always found pot smokers tended to stay home and not drive as drunks are wont to do. And now I am fearful of idiots texting while driving more than the other devils I run across on a daily basis. I see them at every street corner.

    1. A relative of mine was arrested while driving under the influence of Marijuana over the Christmas holiday.

      Impairment while driving (any impairment) is a serious matter. Texting while driving is also impairment.

    2. I'm sorry to hear that. All the potheads I knew back in the day knew better than to drive when under the influence. I do agree that texting while driving is an awful impairment.

    1. Yes, the Jesus Malverde t-shirt is a joke to me. There are American Mexicans who wear them around though, advertising their love of the narcotic.

      Delete
    2. Not narcotically related that I know of, but too many people wear Che shirts. That makes my blood boil when I see it.

      Delete
    3. How many (by percentage) of people who wear Che shirts do you think smoke dope?

      My guess is that you're teetering on 100%

      Delete
    4. I don't know, maybe all of them or not. I don't care if they smoke pot or not, it's the idolizing of a communist butcher that angers me.
