Veterens Point of View Memorial Day

God Bless AmericaTo me, the first thing that comes to mind when I think of Memorial Day is the sacrifice of all those fallen military. I think of the World Wars, and Korea, and Vietnam. The Middle East. The World Trade Center. Fallen heroes. What would the world be like today if they had not made the ultimate sacrifice?

I certainly think of my service. The friendships, the brotherhood. Soldiers old and young. Where are they now, what has their life been like? Faces that I remember of young men in their prime. Now would be old, like mine. We are only young in our mind. Sgt’s, Lieutenants, Captains, Majors, Colonels. I remember Major Reeves, from Korea, communications post at the DMZ.

Keep the memory of those fallen always. And give thanks to those that have and are serving now.

God Bless America, Always!

Medical Marijuana Legislation in VA

Medical Marijuana Legislation in VA

Medical Marijuana

Medical Marijuana

With 14 states already having passed legislation to allow the medical use of Marijuana, and many more with proposals before there state governments, what is the Commonwealth of Virginia doing to follow suite. VA seems to have some of the harshest laws in the country pertaining to the possession of small quantities of Cannabis. When are these political leaders going to realize that prohibition does not work, it didn’t work with alcohol, and it doesn’t work with Marijuana. Face it, weed is here to stay. To include it in the so-called “war on drugs”, is ludicrous. There are so many false myths perpetrated against hemp, and most people know them all, that it would be redundant to go into detail about each and every one. Like I said, weed ain’t goin’ nowhere, like it or not. Just as alcohol ain’t goin’ nowhere. Keeping weed illegal on any level, just creates a bigger black market, and in turn creates smuggling by organized criminals. A legal outlet for medical Cannabis can eventually eliminate the criminal element, for the most part. There will always be those that try to bypass the law, moon shiners still do it, I can attest to that fact via first hand knowledge.

If you make it legal, and tax it, and put governmental programs in place to police and control sales and distribution, and make sure there are stringent guidelines for the growing, sale, and use, it can only be a win-win situation for all. The state can collect millions of dollars, and the medicine that so many people desperately need will be available. Those with the means and desire will continue to use Marijuana

Why the world doesn’t need Superman

Why the world doesn’t need Superman

Watch Superman Returns FREE here!

What if Superman existed in real life? Would he be the hero of comic lore, or would he be like most other human beings (since he was raised as a human)?

Human nature would suggest that complete and total power corrupts completely and totally.  But since this guy is “Super”, would he be above that?

Does the world really need to have a single human being with God-like power that they can put their faith in? To save them from terrible spoils, and basically to dictate what is good and what is not? My personal opinion would be no, the world does not need a Superman.

What would be world government views on a Superman? Given the track record of world governments and their solidarity in protecting the “people”, it would be likely that they would do what they could to suppress even the knowledge of, or deny the existence of such a person as Superman. Governments would scheme some way to hold and imprison such a being or possibly even destroy him. Although I am sure they would do a complete biologic study and mental examination of him.

Ok, all that being said. If he did exist and was competent, intelligent, and inclined to saving us from ourselves, do we really want him to save us? What is moral to one person is immoral or obscene to the other.

I also think it not very sensible to think he would be running/flying around in blue tights and a cape. Looking at the image below, Tom Welling probably most represents what a real Superman would be dressed like.

Excerpt From The Daily Planet

Why The World Doesn’t Need Superman

– By Lois Lane

Metropolis. For five long years the world has stared into the sky, waiting, hoping and praying for his return. We’ve spent our days asking where he went, debating why he left and wondered is he even alive. Perhaps he left us for another world, a world in peril, a world in greater need of a saviour. Is it selfish desire him for ourselves? Are we expected to share the man we’ve come to love or did we do something wrong?

Did we take him for granted? Perhaps we did. Maybe we all did, it’s not our fault. We are far from super. Yet a mother will accept her children regardless of their misfortunes. Why have you rejected us for ours? Perhaps we’re a lost cause unworthy of help and doomed to continue on a path of self-destruction. He has moved on, helping others with a foreseeable future of peace and harmony. Continue reading ‘Why the world doesn’t need Superman’
