We Need the Truth & Nothing But the Truth from Jeff Sessions: How Did We Get Here


Dear @SenKamalaHarris @SenAngusKing @SenatorBurr:
respectively please ask AG Sessions if other than term "snake" are  rattlers & garters the same?

A top level law enforcement position as AG Sessions holds to keep US citizens safe must require capacity to distinguish a rattler Vs garter!

Our safety relies on specific classification such as "poisonous" & "nonpoisonous" to protect & prevent people from illness, injury, death!

So, if given the awesome responsibility of protecting people from snakes that can make folks ill & die, why bother w/non-poisonous garters?!

Stop Denying Veterans Medical Marijuana: _ the real intent?

Dear House Republicans and Democrats (@HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter):

Fact: 

1). a V.A. medical doctor can not even discuss medical marijuana as an option with veterans.

2). marijuana is considered illegal under federal law for allegedly  having no medical merits.

3). marijuana is proven to have medicinal properties that are beneficial to one's physical, mental and spiritual well being.

4). there have been 0 deaths from merely ingesting marijuana - as compared to heroin, opiods and alcohol

5). marijauna and medical marijuana is now currently legal at the state level in several states

6). herion and opiod deaths from overdose are out of control all over america and in every state in america

7). he U.S. population polled is in favor (well over 50% and well over 60%) of legalizing marijuana and, especially, medical marijuana

8). many veterans are prescribed an unnecessary and even dangerous amount of opioids by V.A. medical doctors

9). many veterans overdose every single day from opioids and heroin

10). Donald J. Trump now President of the United States of America and House Republicans and Democrats (@HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter) have the power to propose that marijuana no longer be illegal under federal law

11). a garter snake is non aggressive and non-poisonous

12). a garter snake is a snake but it is classified properly as a non-poisonous snake

13).  rattle snake is aggressive and poisonous

14).  rattle snake is a snake and is classified properly as a poisonous (lethal and deadly) snake

15). If one cannot tell the difference between a garter snake and a rattle snake it could prove to be dangerous, unsafe and deadly -- resulting in death for that incompetent "naive" person and other people being led by that person. Moreover, if one believes garter snakes as dangerous as rattle snakes and wage a war on all snakes giving garter snakes the same "high priority value" and classification as rattle snakes, one is wasting valuable time and resources that could be allocated to the actual threat and real danger risking illness and death

16). Jeff Sessios and Chris Christie vehemently oppose marijuana

"marijuana is only slightly less awful than heroin" - A.G. Jeff Sessions

"good people don't use marijuana" - Jeff Sessions

"I thought the Ku Klux Klan were okay people until I realized they use marijuana" - Jeff Sessions

"crazy liberals are trying to poison our kids with medical marijuana" - Gov of N.J. Chris Christie

"I'm hearing great things about medical marijuana but I don't know about recreational marijuana. Private prisons are good." - Donald J. Trump

17).  in 2018 the Canadian Government will legalize marijuana in the country of Canada for citizens 18 years of age and older (Canada is a legitimate country and recognized as such around the world - including the USA)


Questions:

what's the intent behind this?

1). what's the incentives are there for Donald J. Trump now President of the United States of America and House Republicans and Democrats (@HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter) to continue to keep marijuana a schedule one drug?


2). what allows for-profit-prisons to provide incentives for politicians and law enforcement to continue to keep marijuana as a schedule one drug under federal law classifying it with heroin (thus declaring  marijuana as deadly, as dangerous and as unsafe as heroin and other like opioids)?

3). why doesn't Donald J. Trump now President of the United States of America and House Republicans and Democrats (@HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter) legalize it and quit deceiving the american public and taking away the rights of citizens who use marijuana wasting precious resources and tax payer dollars?!

Conclusion:

Almost all Republicans in the GOP @GOP hold misguided beliefs like Jeff Sessions and Gov Christie based on politics and not reality thus deliberately denying our veterans medical marijuana

Plan of Action. Simple Steps You Can Take to Change Things Like Law and Policy

Tweet at Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump President of the United States of America and House Republicans and Democrats @HouseGOP @HouseDemocrats on Twitter and demand they stop denying our veterans medical marijuana immediately!

"Life's Blood" _ a new song (lyrics) 5/4/17

"Life's Blood" _ a new song (lyrics) 5/4/17

I sing a song 
For when I fell in love
I sing a song
For when I made it through
I sing a song
For when I came home

And I pray
For an olive leaf & its dove
I pray 
For how I'm glad i met you
And I pray 
Any of us won't die alone 

How I sing
I sing it for me
Singing for you
I realize it can be
Listening to you
I now can see 
What's really true

take me 
To where the sun goes down
I'll take you
Where I like hanging around
We're gonna do
What doesn't bring us down

High above
The big picture 
Shows the way out
Yes my love
It was worth it
Yeah I have no doubt 

Yeah I have no doubt 
Now what it's all about
Yeah I have no doubt 
Now what it's all about
Yeah I have no doubt 
Now what it's all about
Yeah I have no doubt 
Now what it's all about

GOP Putting Politics Before VETERANS Care?! Here's the facts



Dear Pete Hegseth c/o F&Fweekend:

if @realDonaldTrump is in charge & VA head OK w/idea veterans smoking pot, WTF @jeffsessions @HouseGOP @SenateGOP 


Didn't our beloved @POTUS pledge 110% loyalty to the Vets to do best innovative cutting edge treatment & services for them?! #opioidcrisis


VA head seems chill with the idea of veterans smoking pot (but GOP will not update antiquated Schedule One law for marijuana because of profits from prohibition) https://news.vice.com/story/va-head-seems-chill-with-the-idea-of-veterans-smoking-pot

Conservative Incompetence Classification Scandal: HUGE Mistake


Conservative Incompetence Classification Scandal: HUGE Mistake

No matter Republican or Democrat! Ask the question, is a gardener snake "slightly less awful" than a rattlesnake? (Then if earnestly trying to eradicate deaths from poisonous rattle snakes why you go into the gardener snake killing business classifying them the same when one is clearly non-poisonous & a non-threat?)

In summation, if one is earnestly trying to eradicate poisonous snakes, why would one waste resources eradicating non-poisonous snakes?! Why

Call your congressman! Jeff Sessions is inadequately inept to serve & protect the people from the real dangers based in reality & not politics and Congress is turning a blind eye!
"Stop wasting our hard earned resources funded by tax payer dollars on non-threats!"

Conservatives rule the House, Senate, Executive Branch & Judiciary so Washington DC can
Fix this classification scandal:)

Poisonous Snakes And Non-Poisonous Snakes Must Be Different And Not The Same Classification 

(You would think our elected leaders and government officials, lawyers, judges from middle America and the south could distinguish the difference in Classification when it comes to a poisonous snake like a rattlesnake Vs. a non poisonous snake like a common garter snake when it comes to the real threats & dangers of each)

How many Russians does it take to effect U.S. Policy for money making schemes on the backs of everyday U.S. Citizens? ("Oh, that was joke... everyone laughs")
