I’m a recreational cannabis refugee. I moved to the Pacific Northwest to avoid the potential of being thrown in a cage for smoking a flower that makes my life better.
I’m old enough to remember when good marijuana was rare and called “kine buds.” Kine comes from Hawaiian pigeon speak for “the good kind.” Since Hawaii has had a long love affair with potent pakalolo (crazy smoke), with strains like Maui Waui becoming world famous, kine became universal slang for “the good weed” even for a teenager like me in the 1990s in Connecticut.
Brick weed of unknown origin was much more common in those days. As the legalization of cannabis expands, so does the knowledge of the best strains and their effects. Today brick weed is all but extinct in the United States while genetic strains of cannabis are becoming very sophisticated.
Crowd sourcing experiences may prove more accurate than clinical studies could ever be. Sites like Leafly and others have curated thousands of experiences about how different strains and doses of cannabis affect people. Although marijuana effects seem to be unique for each individual, much like various alcohol drinks are, some common traits are identifiable.
In a previous article, I described the general differences between sativa and indica strains. Sativa has a more energetic, heady and creative effect, while indica is more pain-relieving and sleep-inducing.
On May 1, 2007, some thousands of New Jersey children were sadistically violated by Comcast’s screening of pornography on the Disney Playhouse cable channel.
How many thousands of innocent 3 to 6-year-old children were traumatized by the close-up groans and grinds of pornography in place of “Handy Manny”?
The number is a well-guarded Disney and Comcast secret.
I received one cynical e-mail saying, “It was a sanctioned technology experiment as the parental controls were overridden. That’s why there’s no government action.” Who will be prosecuted for deliberately and/or recklessly brutalizing these wide-eyed youngsters?
Statistically speaking, some percentage of these small victims will eventually act out on themselves, on their siblings, neighbors, friends, or families and blame themselves!
The Children’s On Line Protection Act, or COPA, would have Internet sites require age identification cards for their content – just like store owners require to sell beer or cigarettes. Disney, an E! Playboy distributor until late 2006, has aggressively opposed COPA’s efforts to penalize sites that give minors access to harmful material.
Under the circumstances, I understand why my correspondent suspects that the May 1 “accident” was actually a test run by Comcast, Disney – or both – to induce small children into pornography addiction.
This is not the first time Disney has been accused of subliminally flashing porn or phallic symbols in their movies. If you have not seen this clip before, I warn you it's very disturbing. Why would Disney include this in one of their most popular films? What else are we NOT catching that the innocent mind of our youth gobble right up?? Makes you wonder...

Sexuality is closely related to spirituality in several ways. In its negative aspects of lust, sexual excess, degradation and rape, it appears as the antithesis of spirituality, and in this light it has been seen in the Christian tradition. However, in its positive aspects our sexuality can open our heart to love, and enable us to have experiences similar to meditative states and mystical bliss during or instead of an orgasm and its afterglow.
In a less obvious way, sexual energies can be channeled upward to develop our energy centers or chakra system and higher energy bodies. According to esoteric and yoga teachings, this is all part of our spiritual evolution.The idea of celibacy for priests, nuns and monks is to spiritualize sexual energies as in meditation, rituals and other devotional practices. While this generally involves conscious exercises as in yoga, Christian mystics commonly transformed their energies without conscious awareness through intense devotion. If religious celibates fight to suppress their sexuality, they misunderstand the deeper reason for the practice of celibacy, and block their spiritual evolution on that level. If devotional practices do not lead to the transmutation of sexual energies then it is much better to find a natural outlet.
Suppression always leads to problems. There are hundreds of different Tantric, Taoist, yogic and meditation techniques to transform sexual energy into kundalini or spiritual energy. Sexual energy is a denser part of our general life force energy, which can be liberated as kundalini energy and led upwards. Its ultimate purpose is to facilitate spiritual growth by developing our chakra system and higher energy bodies.
Is Free Energy for real? Or is it just a tantalizing dream kept alive by wishful thinking and the collective unconscious of mankind... the figment of the imaginations of totally mad scientists.... or as cynics and skeptics proclaim, an easy mark for the unmitigated greed of charlatans and con artists looking for the quick buck.
To facilitate an intelligent dialogue on the subject of free energy I have assembled my final collection of websites and videos, both pro and con. I invite you, using an inquiring but discerning mind, to carefully examine these documents and decide for your self "the truth" of Free Energy. You may be surprised at your conclusions. I was.
Zero Point and Free Energy Proponents
"If we could produce electric effects of the required quality, this whole planet and the conditions of existence on it could be transformed. The sun raises the water of the oceans and winds drive it to distant regions where it remains in state of most delicate balance. If it were in our power to upset it when and wherever desired, this mighty life-sustaining stream could be at will controlled. We could irrigate arid deserts, create lakes and rivers and provide motive power in unlimited amount. This would be the most efficient way of harnessing the sun to the uses of man...."
"It is difficult to imagine a more profound reversal of scientific fortunes than what has been emerging in the "cold fusion" field. One of the most disputed anomalies in the history of science is inexorably heading toward acceptance by the scientific community.''

The Suppression of Free Energy According to Magniwork ".... The suppression of free-energy devices such as magniwork as well as other fossil fuel alternatives has been proven and documented. There has even been a documentary dedicated to the suppression of free energy devices called 'The Quest For Free Energy'. Watch the following documentary to find out why free energy devices are banned for public usage....".
