Scoundrels and Oppressive Laws

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Wed, Mar 21, 2012 - 12:47 pm

The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one’s time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all.

I have much to publish here, but have to get it in order first.

So much happening.

If you haven’t, please call, write, and/or email all your politicians on the need to end Prohibition: state reps and congressional.

In the mean time, in case you haven’t heard, Pat Robertson has come out again in favor of ending marijuana prohibition.

Do You Have Aging Parents or Friends?

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sat, Dec 10, 2011 - 4:11 pm

Did you know there are many illegally-illegal plants and substances could be alleviating the physical and mental agony your friends and loved ones could be using?

Whether it’s marijuana, MDMA, mushrooms, or something else.

This is not a call to rush out to the local drug dealers, but just a heads-up that there is so much needless suffering we can alleviate. We must end prohibition now, this very day!

Let Your Light Shine

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Tue, Dec 6, 2011 - 1:59 am

If you have knowledge, let others light their candles at it.

The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here.

The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here.

No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.

Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness.

Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you.
