Billions for banksters and war, but don’t you be toking

Federal prosecutors are sending letters to landlords renting space to legal-by-California law grow rooms saying their property could be seized if they don’t evict the tenants. Gosh, it’s almost like they want the Mexican drug cartels to control all the growing. Because that’s exactly what will happen.

It gets even crazier. A House committee has passed law making it illegal for Americans to discuss smoking weed in countries like Holland where it is legal. Smoking it there would still be legal. But discussing plans to do so would be a federal crime. I am not making this up.

    Yep, all the hallmarks of a fascist state.

    Indeed, as I have commented elsewhere, in attempting to explain all this away folks still don’t get the difference between Socialism and Fascism. It’s a matter of simply rearranging words: Fascism, as defined by Benito Mussolini, is the wedding of the Corporation and the State – the Corporation controls the State; Socialism, as defined by both Marx and Lenin, is the wedding of the State and the Corporation – the State controls the Corporation. In Fascism the means of production control the means of distribution, in Socialism the means of distribution control the means of production. It is a subtle yet distinct difference.

    OccupyWallStreet may indeed result in a bloody though not necessarily “Socialist” revolution, but the Fascists are already in control. And that is what OccupyWallStreet is all about.

    There’s another [not so] subtle attack on legal growers: The IRS has determined that since growing is a federal crime, all those legal growers and distributors can’t deduct any of their business-related expenses from the income they earn. So if they operate a pot pharmacy, they have to declare all their income but can’t deduct the cost of goods, rent, utilities, hired help, etc.

    An unscrupulous businessperson would demand payment in cash which he/she might then forget to report… but surely the feds aren’t trying to drive the pot business back underground, are they? (Much.)

      Yes, it certainly seems the feds want the cartels to control marijuana.
