From reasonhit&run:
"If you need proof that marijuana causes mental illness just listen to the insane rantings of cops, prosecutors and politicians when they get going on the subject." -- Hakluyt

From The Federalist:

"The deficit doctors have their scalpels out all right, but they're not poised over the budget. That's as fat as ever and getting fatter. What they're ready to operate on is your wallet." -- Ronald Reagan

# Kim du Toit - Opening Up The Page - Kim is offering a weblog hosting service for $20 setup and $10/month. If you're a gun blogger, it could get you more traffic, since he'll share his front page with his other bloggers. It's a way for him to make money and a way for you to get your writing noticed.

# Ron Paul's Texas Straight Talk - Immigration and the Welfare State - defend the borders. Eliminate welfare. Sounds pretty much in-line with the Constitution, defending the borders being one of the few powers given to the fedreal government. I don't see welfare mentioned anywhere.

A recent editorial in The Vancouver Sun supporting the US government versus Marc Emery says that "when we identify suspects who have committed crimes in Canada and fled to the US, authorities there help our police with the investigation" as justification for the extradition. Well, that's baloney. Emery has not been on US soil in years if ever. He avoids the US with its draconian drug laws. Emery did not commit a crime on US soil and flee to Canada. He just carried on a mail order business. Now if the US does not want certain items to be transmitted by mail into the US, they should take appropriate actions to intercept such mail. Don't they have good dogs at the US Postal Service that can sniff out substances that are illegal? If sending marijuana seeds in the mail is illegal here, as in the US, the "crime" was clearly committed in Canada, not the US and the Canadian government should simply tell the US government, okay, we'll prosecute the fellow here since the "crime" was committed here. Then Marc can plead guilty, pay his fine and continue with his life. But to send him to the United States would be absurd as well as a gross perversion of justice.
