Scheduled Event May 15, 2000
Source: St. Louis NORML
A Thousand Cannabeings are expected to truck over to The Stone Shelter of Tower Grove Park in Saint Louis for what is everbecoming a regular irregular event, now, The 5th, Thomas J Birthday Cellebration. Bouyed by the former weekend's success with it's 1st March To The Arch, Your Hosts at St.Louis NORML, Libertarian Party and American Civil Libertys Union Groups will present you with The Big Fun with Music from The Schwag and Madam Sky for picnic revellers attracted from the Quarter Million Self Medicaters of The Great St.Louis Metro Area. 
His Highness, King Bobby Moore will introduce 'Jacki' of MoJo who will perform "Keep The Mercedes" from The "Will Work For Weed" CD for sale by the Committee To Elect Jeff Christen-Mitchell For A Libertarian Congress, Chaired by Gene Triefenbach with Roy Liberman as Secretary. The Libertarian Party is the Nation's Third Party: Corruptisima republica plurimae leges- The more corrupt a republic, the more laws. -- Tacitus Taking much of it's political philosophy from the writings of Thomas Jefferson, Libertarians are committed to reestablishing our government to the Principles of Liberty. He believed that "The government that governs least, governs best." That the government should protect its citizens from force and fraud. Is this what we have now? "The Libertarians have a well-reasoned political philosophy based on free-market economics, individual liberty and military restraint. Their opponents like to brand them as radicals, and the characterization is accurate to a certain extent. Their philosophical foundation is derived from the ideas of people like Thomas Jefferson and George Washington, whose radical thinking created the United States." -- Sun-Sentinel -Florida Why I'm Running..H.R. 2987...The Anti-Freedom Proliferation Act......will bring about further censorship of the Internet by the prosecution of 'thought crimes', Sending information by any method that will be used to break the law! I challenged Reichard Gebhardt to debate me on the drug war last Friday evening on KDHX 88.1 Community Radio-St.Louis. For the last decade the War has been a silent issue...because the Drug Warriors are Afraid To Debate. They know they are guilty of chaining Liberty. There is so much that is great about America. But underneath it all lies our worst shame. We have surpassed Russia, China and South Africa in per capita incarceration. We are no longer The Land of The Free. We are the least free. Once symbolic of Freedom, now the leading POLICE STATE with 25% of all prisoners world wide behind America's bars. Two million Americans are in our prisons and jails. This rate of incarceration is five times what it was and what it should be. It would create our 32nd most populated state. We must turn this around. The current Drug War on the Constitution runs unabated. The US House of Representatives is debating bill S. 486. Already passed by the Senate, it will censor the Internet and bring about bookburnings by November: . When they took the fourth amendment, I was quiet because I didn't deal drugs. . When they took the sixth amendment, I was quiet because I was innocent. . When they took the second amendment, I was quiet because I didn't own a gun. . Now they are taking the first amendment, and I won't be able to say anything about it. I am running in an attempt to bring awareness to the people. With the exception of the Internet, most of the media is controlled by The State. Do you think you get all the news? Our education has been controled with much in our history having gone down the memory hole. Can we recognise Totalitarianism as it creeps down upon us? The American Ideal Is Dying - We Have Been Misled. Our Country was founded on the Principles of Liberty. Once responsive to the people, it's interests are directed by big business. A government by the government for the government. Criminalizing our citizens at a staggering rate promises disaster in the coming years. "Prohibition goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it tries to control a man's appitite by legislation...makes a crime out of things that are not crimes...and strikes a blow at the very principles upon which this country was founded." --Abraham Lincoln 1842 There are two and a half million drug war orphans. If one of nine schoolage children has one or both parents in prison, according to Joseph Califano, that doubles the likelihood of that child becoming a problem in the future. What is America doing to itself? It must stop incarcerating nonviolent, consensual criminals. It took the US 200 years to imprison one million. It then took ten years to imprison the second million. We will have three million Americans imprisoned within eight years.

In a modern commercial turnstile manner, Punishment, Not Justice is meted out to the poor and unconnected. JUSTICE IS AVAILABLE-consult an attorney for a price list. The War on Some Drugs exists just for The Law Enforcement Agencys Benefit. I challennge The Honorable Rachard Gephardt to meet me in a debate, possibly sponsored by KDHX FM to bring the failure of our government to end prohibition again. Mother Cannabis:There have been many tools in man's history, one, especially enabling man's ascent from animal back to the stars. The greatest boost to civilization has come from Cannabis Sativa (Latin for Useful Plant) in the form of food, fiber, oil and medication, in fact every product of the Corporate New World Order has been made only as a substitute for hemp. I promote Cannabis as a Medicine. For sixty years cannabis extracts and tinctures tended to the medical needs of every man, woman and child in the United States, bearing such names as Squibb, Parke-Davis and Smith Brothers. History claims Cannabis as the oldest recorded medicine dated to China 2700 B.C.E. Hemp: Hemp seed oil for nutritional foods, healthful cosmetics, biodegradable plastic, paints, lubricating oil, varnishes and diesel fuel. Within a decade the US could be selfsustaining for 20% of their diesel fuel needs with hempanol. Fiber and Curd for hempboard, bedding and coal substitute.

Saint Louis Area NORML Hemptopian May Happs!
Saturdays' 2nd March to (and back to Keiner Plaza) The Arch found over 750 revellers parteeing DownTown with narly 300 smokily ambulatory. Quelle Groovy! The Man made his approval after an unidentified insecurity guard threated the beast earlier in The Day. Mizzoura weather showed us the real thing with a drenching downpore which resulted in 'bout 30 fighters of freedom forced! to s.r.o. in 'the bandshell', which made for more big fun, if I may speaketh bluntly.    This coming SatDay, the 12th, we'll mosey on over to the KingsHighWay side of Tower Groove Park to be enchanted again by The Schwag and knock some more mellow vibes into the corporate new world order. Noon to Seben, call 314 995-1395 to hear Jaime talk it up. Good Man.        and the 2nd Malcolm X BirTHDAY Tribute is attempting to be reschedled to the 26th to partner up with The Keith Coogan Video Film Festival at The Stratford Inn of Fenton from 9to9. Rock On With Your Bad Self...The Rev
