barry's buds endorses obama

this is a fantastic newsletter from Barry Cooper, the ex-Texas trooper who now does "Never Get Busted" DVDs and lectures all over the country about legalizing marijuana, and how ineffective the drug war has been, and how so many people's lives are ruined getting busted for herb.

i think he's funny and honest and i like his straightforward style and he wholeheartedly believes what he's saying.

the newsletter starts:
Candi and I often use the phrase, “these Americans are crazy!” We use this term when referencing the Americans who support McCain and Palin and the right wing conservatives of our country. We see McCain as a fake, old, mean, power hungry, little man with crazy dark eyes that dart around looking for approval. I remember facing McCain in an elevator regarding our current marijuana laws only to see him dart away as I was shoved by some of his security. The entire incident was captured by a freelancer who placed it on you tube here:...

gnarly footage of Barry Cooper try to confront McCain on an elevator with Cindy McCain and some shady bodyguards about marijuana harming people when it really helps people.

the newsletter also features such gems as:

"I have no respect for McCain and wish we were all on an anarchist island together so I could kick his ass…he deserves it!"


"So vote for Obama. He is half black and half white and totally opposes the crazy Bush and McCain generation of government. "

humpy brownie

peanut butter time 3, originally uploaded by skippy haha.

henry has a stuffed dog friend about half his size named humpy, so named because henry used to or still likes to hump him. when the neighbor's girl comes over to play with henry, humpy's name turns to brownie.

8 legged demon

how exciting is it to find a black widow the size of a quarter up between the shower curtain liner and the shower curtain while taking a shower?


flicking and crushing it with a slippery conditioner bottle is a surefire way to get the blood pumping in the morning!

and then to find another one in the same place 2 weeks later - exhilirating!

if we all cancel christmas, we'll kill the economy

history isn't written yet,
we're not stuck in a depression yet,
if we stop spending any money won't the economy necessarily shrivel and wither?
shouldn't we keep spending? in places we love for experiences and things and food we love?
no fear.

i keep seeing 'stocks tumble amidst fears...'
let's stop fearing
and stocks will climb

The temperature inside my house is currently 49 degrees Farenheit.

i am sitting at my desk chair in my sleeping bag and fingerless gloves.

i called the oil company when they opened at 830 and the guy said he'd have someone here 'before lunch.'

when i moved here in april, the girl moving out said the oil tank was empty.

the oil guy on the phone said that trying to run it when the tank is empty will draw sludge from the 100 year old oil tank into the system and the whole thing would need to be cleaned out

so i'm waiting


YES he just pulled up!

If you could drill Sarah Palin w/ anything, what would it be? from vintage vantage on Vimeo.

People at Baracknroll SF this week had some good ideas.

I would drill her with a solar powered dune buggy. Or Ritz Bitz crackers.

pig dog

holden picked up an unbitten red apple from a neigbor's driveway and walked the entire 1.5 mile loop with it wedged in his mouth last night.

he met a mom and her toddler. the mom asked 'is he good with kids?'

and i said 'yes...but he has an apple stuck he picked up on the street...'

and she said 'awww, he found something special...' as her toddler collided into holden's side

when we got home he sat on the dogbed and ate the apple in about 4 bites.

sunburned tired glad i went

barack obama, originally uploaded by skippy haha.

i just got back from the barack obama rally held in the packed and sunny football stadium of Asheville High School.

i was in a snaking line for about an hour. everybody was in good spirits. people were selling t-shirts, pins, hats, rally towels (i got one $5), stickers, car magnets, berets, for obama.

a woman in line with me has lived in fairbanks alaska for the last 10 years and said it is 'absolutely true, common knowledge' among alaskans that governor palin's oldest son, track, is in iraq as an alternative to jailtime, after vandalizing all the wasilla school buses with friends and other punk activities. so when she talks about him being there because he wanted to do all he can for this country, she's lying.

also that wasilla had to hire somebody to do the budget for her for $30K/year because sarah palin was incapable.

she had some more nuggets but you had to be there.

both sides of the stadium's bleachers were jammed full. along the fences within earshot were 3 deep at least. 50 yards of the playing field were full of old people, young people, black people, white people, babies on shoulders, and so many cameras.

barack obama looks so healthy and energetic and vibrant.

he talked about mccain wanting to 'turn the page' away from the economic crisis with swift boat distractions, and how we are not going to be 'bamboozled' and 'hoodwinked', 'okeydoke?' clearly mocking sarah palin's country bumpkin act.

he talked about health care. the specifics of his plan and how he'll fund it, and the specifics of mccain's plan and how he'll fund it. mccain's way of taxing our insurance benefits is crap. obama's way of taxing the really rich is cool.

as far as taxes go, unless you're really rich and making more than $250K a year, you're way better off with obama.

even if you're really rich, you're the same with obama as you were with clinton, and you're better than you were with reagan.

at the end of his speech, they let go about two dozen white doves and they flew in formation, no undue chaos or fear just grace and peace.

and he was off

nacho and i trekked down there to check it out. nobody was camping out like i thought there'd be.

they're unloading trucks of podiums and cables and signs. the stadium is beautiful with the blue ridge mountains in the background.

i've heard that sarah palin 'rebounded' in the debate last night. so, blatantly ignoring the actual questions asked of you and rambling your memorized talking points equals good?

i can't imagine her sitting down with a foreign diplomat who needed a translator. would the translator wink? what would the translator do with "joe six pack"? she is an embarrasment. you betcha.

and is it too much to ask that the VP candidate can pronounce NUCLEAR?

nuke. lee. er.
voila! (vwala)

vast variety

KATIE COURIC: And when it comes to establishing your world view, I was curious, what newspapers and magazines did you regularly read before you were tapped for this — to stay informed and to understand the world?

SARAH PALIN: I’ve read most of them again with a great appreciation for the press, for the media —

COURIC: But what ones specifically? I’m curious.

PALIN: Um, all of them, any of them that have been in front of me over all these years.

COURIC: Can you name any of them?

PALIN: I have a vast variety of sources where we get our news.

if it is such a 'vast variety' why did she blank out, unable to name ONE newspaper or magazine that she reads?

is any single thing about her honest? or intelligent?
