Gramps Smokes Dope

This friend of mine from Worldwide Hippies, Sherry who writes After the Bridge, posted a video today and I offer it now as an alternative to Grandpa in the Sky.  It's a shame that so many folks insist that God wanders around the clouds scowling and muttering to himself kind of like John McCain wandered around the stage during a debate with Barack O'Bummer - who I refuse to discuss at the moment since I'm in a good mood.

If God is a social construct for the most part anyway, there's no reason we can't make him a stoner telling all those Conservative Christians and other religious zealots to stop harshing our collective Mellow.  If, as we all learned in the Hitchhikers' Guide, the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything is 42 - and since 42 multiplied by 10 is 420 - it could be that (when certain individual factors don't mean it's contraindicated) Ganja is the answer.

Now that I'm thinking about it, Bob Marley may very well have been trying to tell us all that years ago.

Weed may well BE the answer, Trish. If some of those uptight Rethuglicans, like Michelle Bachman as a prime example, would just take a few tokes they might relax a bit and realize how wrong they are about absolutely EVERYTHING.

In the preamble of the constitution those Teabagger freaks are so rabidly waving around all the time it says we are to, "...establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and insure the blessings of liberty..." It seems to me that the Teabaggers are only interested in the "provid(ing) for the common defense" part. They wouldn't even recognize justice or liberty if it bit them on the ass, let alone promote general welfare. Oh, gawd no! Those lazy cripples should get off their asses, rise out of their sickbeds and collect cans on the side of the road.

Somebody's not paying attention-- and contrary to popular belief it ISN'T us stoners.

No Kidding.
Well, we may have to haul out the Menopausal Stoners Herb Tea cart and drag it to Washington DC for the action on Oct 6 with Stop the Machine!

A few of us from Worldwide Hippies are seriously thinking about going. Time to make a flag (and knock Michelle on the head with it)

See, I've always liked that "promote the general welfare" part of the preamble. I figure if the meek ever get to inherit the Earth, they'll probably sequester Michelle Bachman and her friends on a reservation someplace, let them fight it out as they try to impose their will on each other.

The way things are going in Arizona, if we chose that for a location, half the folks who need to be sequestered are already there - and it would be easy enough to get those Teabagging Theocrats in Texas over there. The rest can have their own Trail of Tears . . .
