Since a very old (in Internet years) webpage was being loaded many times over, it was time to revisit it. (There is currently only one editor and proofreader.)

The champions and promoters of death, stigma, lies, and pain screamed in faces, over the airwaves, and in the oldspapers about their lust for continued undeserved, unconstitutional, and un-Biblical power over others.
A delightful, heartfelt take on the Carol of the Bells from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition.
In a bizarre twist, the news outlet I’ve taken to calling the Pwned By Sadists Inside the Möbius Beltway Hour published an interesting finding.
Apparently fruit flies drink alcohol to self medicate. It keeps them safe from parasites. Some of you may be thinking, “I’ve heard of that: absinthe, the wormwood in absinthe is well known to flush intestinal parasites.” But that’s only partly what is at work, based on my understanding of this report.
When was the last time DrugFree.org published the results of urine-testing their Executive Officers?

Now that the handouts have stopped evolving so much it’s time to address an accusation some have made against them, “propaganda.” Since the handouts don’t have enough space to cite every source, I
I would like to congratulate the Reverend Dean Becker for working hard these past 9 years broadcasting various programs on the Drug Truth Network, all in the name of ending Drug War and all its ass

An as-of-yet unnamed organization has awarded its “Deathtime Achievement Award for Sitting in the Seat of God” to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency. Yes, you read that right!
Loony Laws from the Power Mongers, People with Friends in Business, and the Holier-Than-Thou-Congregation
Perhaps you do not know that you — and those you love — are breaking many laws of the United States of America! Just imagine if the poor police had to carry around the full text of every law that exists and had to enforce them.
In this series of articles you will find a growing list of "Loony Laws" which clearly originated from people who love to lord authority over others (1, 2, 3), or had friends in business they tried to channel money to, and even members of the Holier-Than-Thou-Congregation who believe it's their duty to force their version of religion on others.
One of the sources will be a children's book entitled, "Loony Laws… That You Never Knew You Were Breaking," by Robert Wayne Pelton. There is a picture of the book's cover on the right. The book is a riot, but since it's directed at kids it doesn't go into much detail on the background of the laws. And Mr. Pelton is so clearly fascinated with his long list of loony laws that even the Preface and Introduction are chock full of loony laws, at the expense of background information about himself, those who supplied him with these laws, what's being done about them, how they are handled, and other "About" information it traditionally provided in those sections of books.
But don't let my somewhat harsh-sounding summary above keep you from following along here, or checking it out — if you can spare the money for a copy of the book, or it's in your library — it is definitely worth locating and reading. This is from the end of the Introduction:
But relevant or ridiculous, these statues are still around — unless they've been repealed indirectly by blanket or collective legislation.
Most of these strange laws were obtained from friends, associates, attorneys, and people met in passing while I traveled around the country. Many other legal oddities have been patiently assembled during my excursions throughout the world.
Other sources will be referenced as appropriate.
