According to a recent
more Americans are now smoking marijuana than cigarettes. That’s
progress, right? In a poll conducted July 5th to 26th, only 11% of Americans
surveyed said they smoked cigarettes. That’s as compared to 45% in the
mid-1950s. Yet 16% of Americans admitted to smoking pot, 48% saying they have

industry has been constantly harassed, taxed, fined, and demonized by
government entities and liberals everywhere…whereas the production and sale of marijuana

marijuana cigarette, or “joint,” contains more carcinogens than does a tobacco
cigarette. Moreover, the amount of the intoxicating substance in a joint, THC,

All sentient and sane people wonder how this can possibly be.

of their skin color, utterly ignoring the stupendously racist nature of
their own remarks and beliefs, not to mention the mind-boggling hypocrisy.
all erstwhile taboos and modes of depravity are being legitimized-- and indeed
lionized-- even as Christianity is being mocked, altered, and demonized.
criminals are being repeatedly set free without bail, yet Trump supporters deemed
guilty of “trespassing” are being held in prisons-- if not solitary confinement--
for lengthy and often indefinite periods of time.
Biden administration considers other nations’ borders inviolate, while effectively
refusing to even acknowledge our own. Our elites disparage a wall on our
southern border, but almost without exception make certain their own properties
are protected by fences and/or walls. And often armed security, though most
purport to be for gun control. Our current leaders neglect our own aging nuclear
deterrent while doing everything they can to make certain Iran has “the bomb”
most detrimental of all, the divine complementarity of the two sexes, male and
female, is being summarily dismissed as arbitrary, unreal, a mere figment of the
imaginations of white male scientists from yesteryear. Something simply “assigned”
