Hemp Horror

Submitted by ub on Mon, 01/13/2020 - 14:00

what to do about legalized hemp. Million-dollar hemp crops are bulldozed by law enforcement officials, perhaps mistakenly, because some of it was growing on land not licensed for such use. It’s a familiar story, where the hemp industry is growing faster than the legal standards designed to govern it. That means confusion for cops and bad news for farmers.

Today is the one day anyone can feel free to drop their drawers in public and show their undies. Underwear is worn for a variety of reasons. They keep outer garments from being soiled by perspiration, and other symptoms. In this instance, thankfully for obvious reasons.

Every year a growing group od NYC subway riders commute wearing undergarments on the bottoms and today was no different.

There are no figures available as of yet on how many women have been sexually assaulted during the "no pants" subway ride.

The US Constitution First Amendment is to allow #WeThePeople to think, speak, write and worship as they wish, not what the government says.

Americans stand for truth and justice. Most are are conservatives although folks living on east and west coasts, as well as college towns, are considered liberal.

In how many ways has our great nation changed from how it was a couple of years ago?

The World Atlas claims there are approximately 4,444 cities on earth with a combined population of around 100,000 people.

Which #Mega #City is the largest and the best one in the globe?


Some lists place Tokyo as the largest city in the world, but I live in the greatest city on earth and I have traveled around including Japan, and China, so I think Shanghai takes the top honor when the entire municipality is counted as one city.

A Royal Flush

To put this in perspective, for poker players the probability of getting a royal flush in poker is at 1 in 649,740, and the probability of an amateur hitting a hole-in-one in golf is hundreds of times as great, at 1 in 12,000.

Not four of a kind, but three this time. Three family members deciding to step away from the British Crown today and be part-time Royals. The UK is not OK -Liz is pissed.

Real Truth Decay

The naked untruth is that too many players are resorting to fake photoshopped images and edited videos that can be deceiving and appear real to the naked eye.

As the 2020 presidential election approaches, some politicians and other candidates are being singled out for vile abuses. The spread of misinformation and bad-faith conjecture in our “post-truth” world has inflamed tensions and inspired violence.

Trust US Intelligence

Three #USA presidents have considered an operation to kill #Suleimani, but only one of them came up with a different answer under circumstances unlike those experienced by his two predecessors.

Who is the only one that keeps on bowing down to #Russia and #Putin no matter what our intelligence community tells him?
