Episodes that plague us due to heavy-handed absolutist drug prohibition and the black market it has fostered.

Lindy, "No Knock Raid" Music Video

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Thu, Jun 30, 2011 - 9:39 pm

An ironically gentle song about one of the least gentle (or gentlemanly) things of all, the “no knock SWAT raid.” Berserk madmen come screaming through the door shouting like samurai warriors bark

Leaders to be Thrown Out by God

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Mon, May 30, 2011 - 3:17 pm

[Jesus] went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of the vineyard. But the tenants beat him and sent him away empty-handed.

“He sent another servant, but that one also they beat and treated shamefully and sent away empty-handed.

“He sent still a third, and they wounded him and threw him out.

“Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my son, whom I love; perhaps they will respect him.’

“But when the tenants saw him, they talked the matter over. ‘This is the heir,’ they said. ‘Let’s kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.’ So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him.

“What then will the owner of the vineyard do to them? He will come and kill those tenants and give the vineyard to others.”

When the people heard this, they said, “May this never be!”

Jesus looked directly at them and asked, “Then what is the meaning of [this scripture]: ‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone’?

“Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.”

The teachers of the law and the chief priests looked for a way to arrest him immediately, because they knew he had spoken this parable against them. But they were afraid of the people.

Keeping a close watch on him, they sent spies, who pretended to be honest. They hoped to catch Jesus in something he said so that they might hand him over to the power and authority of the governor.

Cops Intimidate and Threaten EACH OTHER Over Who Gets to Steal Your Money

Yet another example, caught on video, of the corrupting influence of prohibition. Cops caught on their own video cameras threatening each other with who gets to grab money from their victims.

“Only Doing Our Job”

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Mon, May 23, 2011 - 12:20 pm

As many have pointed out, it is hypocrisy for Drug Warriors to say they’re only doing their jobs, and act like it’s out of their hands, then later they dress in uniform, intimidate fellow citizens,

Song: Drug War Vultures (Love Death)

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sun, Dec 19, 2010 - 9:56 pm

This song is not quite done, but needs exposure. It's about the Drug War Vultures who descend on sad and tragic situations then fill the heads of the sorrowful with incorrect logic.

Drug War Vultures (Love Death)

Drug War Vultures love death. Cheesy heroin, meth.
They don’t care how you died, only that your relatives cried.

Drug War Vultures love death, blaming drugs for the mess.
Undercover, overtime, Mortgaged on the taxpayer’s dime.

Drug War Vultures love death. Working hard to deceive,
Trying to get you to believe, and Worship Drug War on your knees.

Daniel's Vision of Prisons’ Iron Teeth Devouring Victims

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Thu, Dec 9, 2010 - 8:44 pm

After that, in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast — terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left.

One of These Days You Could Be Cut Into Little Pieces

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Wed, Dec 8, 2010 - 7:37 pm

One of these days I’m going to cut you into little pieces!


But suppose that servant is wicked and says to himself, ‘My master is staying away a long time,’ and he then begins to beat his fellow servants and to eat and drink with drunkards.

The master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he is not aware of.  He will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

Prohibitionists' Mindsets Overview -- Similarities, Differences, misc Jobs

NOTE: This web page is old now, but has not yet been updated to reflect that past this note. Since it is gaining recognition please revisit to see updates. ETA: Unknown, soon I hope. 2014-06-12 111111


So far I have found 7 distinct Prohibitionist Mindsets.  Below is a chart which provides an overview.

Even though 7 mindsets have been identified, others may come to light.  

Most Prohibitionists have one or more mindsets and only some people cling exclusively to one mindset.

Overlords of the PBS News Hour Finally Allow the Word "Legalization" to be Spoken

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Tue, Aug 31, 2010 - 3:41 am

Although they still seem to be prohibited from using the word "prohibition." And they STILL are not inviting Walter McKay on the show! A subject-matter expert from the trenches, not just a journalist (sorry, no offense intended journalists). At least they seem to be making some progress against whoever is trying to control them. The cartels? People being paid off by the cartels?

There are two videos to watch.

Blood is on Whose Hands?!

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Tue, Aug 24, 2010 - 11:16 pm

One of the fallacies the prohibitionists keep on putting out there, as though they actually cared about the tens of thousands dead in Mexico, other countries, and our own, is that drug purchasers are the ones deserving blame for those deaths, as opposed to the prohibitionists themselves.

This is just a bold-faced lie. Sick minds like wife-beaters think this stuff up and con others to accept it.

AMW, Cops, DEA, Make Perfect Case for Drug Legalization

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Tue, Aug 24, 2010 - 10:28 pm

On Saturday 2010-08-14 there was an episode of America's Most Wanted, and although I missed some of the introductory segment, I didn't miss some of the key reasons they gave for ending the Drug War.

Unfortunately they talked too fast — and I (or you) can't watch it again from their website, and I'm not sure it can be viewed on websites that offer TV viewing — but there were some great quotes. Of which I have glimpses of a few for you.
