More Garbage From Parliament

Press release from Ethical Adult Cannabis Consumers

More Garbage From Parliament

Peter Dunne one of the grubbiest players in the sandpit that our parliament seems to resemble is at it again with his name calling and lie telling outbursts regarding Nandor Tancozs and the greens.

Mr Dunne should realize that people like himself who have been caught with their pants down and their deplorable morals exposed for all to see as his were when he reffered to terminally ill sufferers of diseases such as aids and cancer as “Garbage” have no right or standing in any sensible debate on our failed and harm maximizing cannabis laws. His remarks then showed him as a cold hearted bigot and his party’s actions in Parliament portray them as a peculiar type of Christians who enjoy running our modern day circus which throws pot smokers to the lions.

Other Parliamentarians are also pushing their own personal garbage views into the community and are now trying to blame cannabis for our country’s present amphetamine problem. Most cannabis users have nothing to do with dirty, dangerous potentially toxic drugs such as P but quite clearly gang run tinny shops which offer free tastes of hard drugs and say they are out of pot does accelerate the spread of the harder substances.

That is why the Dutch split the hard and soft drug markets in their country with cannabis coffee cafes, it is also behind the British governments sensible approach in voting to stop the arrest of adult cannabis users or as they put it "The Government is determined to support the police in tackling the problem of drug abuse with an effective and realistic approach," said the Home Secretary", good sensible stuff by the British and something we could learn by.

Cannabis users today in New Zealand are like the “niggers” were in southern U.S.A, we are like the “Poofta’s” who only a short while ago were called criminals and bashed by righteous straight folks, we are like the “whore’s” who some in parliament are keen to reclassify as criminals. The message that prohibition pushers keep going on about has nothing to do with health, that’s easy to teach and most young people seem better informed than parliamentarians.

Instead Its about sending the message that the state can take a big thick broomstick to its own citizens for actions which are no morally worse than having a whisky after a hard days work. The message is about domination and bullying as well as hypocrisy, it undermines drug education, respect for the police and the justice system. The message is rejected by more and more and prohibition fuelled crimes, home invasions and murders continue to grow. There is blood on the hands of people like Anderton and Dunne.

It’s almost a shame but the two best role models in parliament are a transvestite and a Rastafarian, one was once labelled and convicted of being a criminal the other has nasty people trying to get him a criminal conviction. Both have the rare qualities amongst politicians of being truthful, humble and tolerant to others.

In the meantime Peter Dunne unless you’ve explained and apologised for your insulting “Garbage” remarks to the sick we suggest you shut up and concentrate your vote grubbing to other areas which inflict less harm to New Zealanders.

Gordon Campbell: On How National’s ”New” Welfare Plan Resurrects A Past Failure

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
