Votey vote vote

My take on this votey vote vote.
1st day after the big vote. I didn't realize it but
 Oregon decided that it's ok to smoke pot in the street but unfortunately they also chose not to require lab food to be labeled.
What does this mean?
Nothing, I already know the difference between a Safeway carrot and a New Seasons one... pot is all around all the time. It's all biz as usual. Cops never cared.
A couple of years ago, i passed a cop scolding at a yelling homeless couple with the words "You two need to stop fighting and creating a disturbance,just smoke your joint and try and work it out calmly". I looked and they were holding a lit joint. wow. P-town cops care about murder, not j walking or some weed somuch.

GMO stuff is everywhere already. We know our corn tortillas are GMO, we just simply can't afford the real ones at a buck each. The real creepy foods are at "ethnic" grocery shelves. I call them the star trek colored food aisle.
Generally, the folks who care what they eat, already know, and the other sheeple are just gonna have to blindly blame birth defects, malnutrition and disease on...the devil, immigrants and Obama I guess.
The only part that is scary to me is that with the cannabis more legal than ever, it's that much easier for big corporations to turn the sacred herb into the abomination they made tobacco into.
The pot prohibition actually was protecting it from the worst ideas and now the gate has dropped.

If money was the deciding factor benefiting huge corporations {over the health of the people} then the system of government isn't actually democracy, it's a plutocracy.
 A nation ruled by the rich rather than good ideas floating to the top for the good of all.

My life doesn't change much, I'm still a clown, laughing and loving...but a little sad that in this Space-age we live in, folks are still very easily led to vote against their best interests. Maybe the next generation will mix it up for us, if not climate change will for sure.

If you find cheaper factory food than fresh organic you actually just end up paying later in medical bills. 
Does it mean anything that New Seasons and Dr. Bronners soap are behind it while some of the most horrific, poisonous companies ever threw a mint against it 
(Dupont, Pepsi, Philip Morris, Coke)?
 How much do you think they paid to have the Oregonian pre maturely announce the bill defeated? 
Do dirty tricks ring red flag bells? 
What does it say to all those people who took to the streets, and were easily trounced by multi million dollar campaigns.
 What about the workers and Indians who say they are getting poisoned in the fields?
 Weakening those ranks to throw more power at the corporations is just silly.

Like what we do? Here is our virtual tip jar

Lots of people we asked why they voted against the measure gave identical statements that sounded a lot more like AM radio programming than a conclusion that comes from facts. My guess is that they are siding with the pundits and multiple pieces of high end advertising that came in the mail rather than siding with the workers and Indians begging for it to stop, or the Mom's and activists who just don't want hazardous food everywhere.

 It blows my mind that Kraft and Nestle are generally not considered what they are, poisonous. Maybe the reason there is no interstellar travel between planets is because as soon as a species is clever enough to master space flight, they are also clever enough to self exterminate.

Well we sure tried (along with thousands of other concerned citizens.
