Guest Post: President Choomwagon

Submitted by John Aziz of Azizonomics

President Choomwagon

President Obama’s teenage gang called themselves the Choom Gang, choom being their slang word for marijuana. They developed a marijuana-oriented culture:

As a member of the Choom Gang, Barry Obama was known for starting a few pot-smoking trends. The first was called “TA,” short for “total absorption.” To place this in the physical and political context of another young man who would grow up to be president, TA was the antithesis of Bill Clinton’s claim that as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford he smoked dope but never inhaled.

 

Along with TA, Barry popularized the concept of “roof hits”: when they were chooming in the car all the windows had to be rolled up so no smoke blew out and went to waste; when the pot was gone, they tilted their heads back and sucked in the last bit of smoke from the ceiling.

 

When you were with Barry and his pals, if you exhaled precious pakalolo (Hawaiian slang for marijuana, meaning “numbing tobacco”) instead of absorbing it fully into your lungs, you were assessed a penalty and your turn was skipped the next time the joint came around.

They even called their Mystery-Machine-style VW van the Choomwagon:

I don’t have a problem with Obama — or anyone else — smoking dope. As far as I am concerned, consenting adults have the liberty to do whatever they like so long as they don’t hurt others, or take their liberty or property.

I don’t have a problem with Obama — or anyone else — defining themselves by smoking dope.

I have a problem with hypocrisy.

Not only did Obama use marijuana in his youth, he also used cocaine, and reportedly crack. Today around 400,000 Americans are jailed for non-violent drug related offenses. That’s 400,000 outside of the workforce who could be out working and producing, instead of burdening the taxpayer, who pays to create profits for well-connected corporations in the prison-industrial complex.

Put more simply, there are more black people in prison as a result of the drug war today than there were slaves in 1850.

What’s President Obama — as a black man and a drug user — doing about that? There are still thousands of people being arrested for nonviolent drug offenses who are facing life in prison.

President Obama’s signature  policy in this area has been the Fair Sentencing Act which reduced the previous 100:1 sentencing discrepancy between crack (predominantly used by blacks) and powder cocaine to 18:1, as well as eliminating the five-year mandatory minimum sentence for simple possession of crack cocaine. So now the courts will be 18 times tougher on urban blacks using crack than they are on Wall Street traders (etc) using powder cocaine? Am I supposed to think that that is better?

No. He is willing to keep jailing nonviolent citizens who did nothing more than ingest or possess a narcotic, and deny them their liberty. He is willing to enforce racist laws and policies that lock up and criminalise a disproportionately high number of minorities, at a huge cost to the taxpayer. He is willing to deny medical marijuana patients the medicine their doctors have prescribed. He is willing to maintain the drug laws and the drug war, that (lest we forget) are the thing that are empowering and enriching the Mexican drug smuggling cartels and urban criminal gangs, and creating huge violence and thousands of deaths throughout Latin America.

As Milton Friedman wrote:

If you look at the drug war from a purely economic point of view, the role of the government is to protect the drug cartel. That’s literally true.

 

There is no logical basis for the prohibition of marijuana. Our failure to successfully enforce these laws is responsible for the deaths of thousands of people in Colombia. I haven’t even included the harm to young people. It’s absolutely disgraceful to think of picking up a 22-year-old for smoking pot. More disgraceful is the denial of marijuana for medical purposes.

But the thing that tears me up most is the rank hypocrisy. President Obama is a hypocrite who won’t even fight to legalise nonviolent behaviour that he himself proudly and overtly practised. If only he hadn’t been so lucky; those unjust drug laws that he won’t fight to repeal would likely have prevented him from ever being President, and he might instead be on probation working at Footlocker.

A President with integrity or compassion would fight tooth and nail to end this. Ron Paul — who has never used illegal recreational drugs — has vowed that as President he will pardon nonviolent drug offenders, give them back their liberty, and the right to keep the fruits of their labour, and save taxpayers a $15 billion-per-year bundle of cash by ending the waste and destruction of the war on drugs. Drug abuse should be treated as a social-medical problem. The war on drugs is an economic drain and a threat to our liberty.

Penn Jillette said it in a slightly more concise and colorful manner:

 

"Do we believe, even for a second, that if Obama had been busted for marijuana -- under the laws that he condones -- would his life have been better? If Obama had been caught with the marijuana that he says he uses, and 'maybe a little blow'... if he had been busted under his laws, he would have done hard f*cking time. And if he had done time in prison, time in federal prison, time for his 'weed' and 'a little blow,' he would not be President of the United States of America. He would not have gone to his fancy-a** college, he would not have sold books that sold millions and millions of copies and made millions and millions of dollars, he would not have a beautiful, smart wife, he would not have a great job. He would have been in f*cking prison, and it's not a god damn joke. People who smoke marijuana must be set free. It is insane to lock people up."

the average American is libertarian...that in fact is the American way....the average American just does not know it...they think they are red or blue or something in between...check out politicalcompass.org    it has a quick little test with which you can see just where you are not only on the left right line but (more importantly) on the verticle axis which measures authortarian vs libertarian views. I have found the results often surprise people, especially the guy who says "I make Atilla the Hun seem liberal".

I am not certain your assertion is correct.  However, I believe that the reason 3rd parties do not do well in America is not that they don't espouse positions in keeping with American sensibilities, it is that many erstwhile 3rd party voters become convinced that if so and so gets elected, America is certain to go to hell in a hurry.  Among Democrats, who may lean Green or Workers Party, the fear is that if Mitt Romney is elected, he would solidify elite rule by appointing 3 new Supreme Court Justices who would lean right.  I would assume similar memes are bandied about about Obama.  BTW - the Libertarian Party platform is not merely about personal freedom and liberty, it rejects collectivism in all forms, including Medicare and Social Security.  A tad extreme for my tastes.

yeah, great.  first you wasted our time worrying about his birth certificate, now you want to distract us with a transcript search.  puh-leeze.  focus on what matters, not BS like this

MarsInScorpio's picture

Dugorama, do you feel that finding out if POTUS is a serial felon who should be indicted, and will be convicted, is "what matters?"

 

The issue with the transcripts is not about grades - although many will no doubt get off on that.

 

No, it is about the issue of whether Obama received federal funds by defrauding schools to which he represented he was a foreign exchange student, born in Kenya. If he did, then he is liable for the criminal penalties.

 

The problem Obama faces is how to explain the 16-years that he represented himself as Kenyan-born through his literary agent, and throughout his political career through his campaign materials, public statements, and news reports about his campaigns for the IL State Senate, and the US Senate, up to April, 2007, two months after he decided to run for president.

 

At that point, he suddenly became an American citizen, born in Hawaii - the story you hear today from him and his apologists.

 

So if you don't consider whether he is a serial felon, "what matters," then certainly I respect that for your life.

 

However, I do consider that the issue of who will be POTUS matters critically, because it affects matters ranging from fiscal policy to foreign affairs, to civil peace and economic prosperity (or the lack thereof any of those).

 

Many people have a major issue - and so to them it is "what matters" - to think that Obama could go 16 years lying about where he was born. How psycho do you have to be to do that? And do you really want someone that psycho as POTUS?

 

But then, maybe he wasn't lying during those 16 years. Maybe he is lying now about being a US citizen. Maybe the truth is that there is no long-form birth certificate just as the governor of Hawaii - and hardcore Obama supporter - told the world after he went to the Department of Health and couldn't find the long form certificate on file.

 

The long-form certificate you see now was produced after The Donald pressed hard on the issue - then suddenly - there it is.

 

Only it isn't the one from the microfilm. No, it is a PDF that many, many PDF engineering experts have pronounced as a forgery. Just as his draft registration card has been shown to be a forgery, and then there is the messy question of how he got a CN SSN living in Hawaii. These questions are all being investigated in the state of Arizona, because the legitimacy of the Office of POTUS is "what matters" to the rule of law in America.

 

So I guess "what matters" depends on what matters to any of us as individuals. I read ZH and watch one example after another of the total corruption of the US financial world. It is not a republic that we inhabit, it is a kleptocracy. It is littered with kleptocrats who steal anything they want - Corzine comes immediately to mind - and absolutely nothing happens to them.

 

To many of us the preservation of America is "what matters" - and it matters greatly.

 

So circle back up to the beginning of this missive, and rediscover for yourself "what matters" to the few remaining honest, decent, people, left in the US.

 

Because while I know in my heart Obama was born in Kenya - no one goes 16 years misstating where he or she is born throughout their professional and political career - or else he did do that so he could steal federal money just like his mother did with her welfare payments - knowing the truth about the POTUS is "what matters" greatly.

"The CHOOMWAGON is heading for the edge of the cliff that ends up in the shit abyss."

The problem with legalizing drugs is the same problem the US has with obesity.  We don't have the discipline in this nation to handle it.  Perhaps if we as a society showed even a little self control, I'd believe we could handle legalizing additional harder substances like cocaine and crack, even weed.  Til then, time to hunker down and impute purpose into people's lives that would not include getting trashed and stoned on every occasion.  Somehow, I don't think the massive drug parks in Amsterdam are a vision for the future, as much as the ultra-vigilent drug war isn't either.  Somewhere, there is a happy medium.

Legalize crack. Legalize everything, get the government out of the babysitting business and the pharmanopoly. What will happen is: the crack heads will continue to do what they are doing, and the smart kids & mommies will continue to avoid them as they do now. The difference will be that we won't be paying billions every years for the illusion that something "good" is being done, and for the unconstitutional imprisonment of Americans. Criminals will go out of business, this business will return to Americans, the consistent quality of recreational drugs will skyrocket and the economy will stabilize despite government meddling. The international drug syndicates will lose their state sponsored monopoly and the slaughter in Mexico will end. Cops will keep busting people who commit crimes against other people

@SeattleBruce, perhaps we can start with decriminalizing simple possession of drugs.  That would significantly  reduce prison populations, free up policing, reduce pressure on the law courts, and save a ton of money in the process.  Alas, there are just too many powerful interests who benefit from maintaining the status quo.  Until the sheeple wake up and vote for someone like Ron Paul, nothing will change.

You are missing the point of these laws...they give the police the incentive and the 'need' to do endless stops and searches....what would they do without these laws?...go back to running the radar trap rackets?...

Ulimately police work is mostly unneeded, my last few burglaries were handled predominantly  by my insurance agent...

I am incensed that cops ask for permission to do a search of my vehicle....the very entity that supposedly protcets my rights (against search and seizure) is now telling us that they want to do that...many folks, wanting to be good citizens, say sure go ahead and search, I got nuttin to hide...I tell them that they cannot, unless they have a warrant. My kids have all been trained to do the same.

Bill Clinton and his 'Crime Bill' are the things that made me aware...the cops....are not the good guys we want them to be...they are just another political party (together with prison guards) who urge expansion of our intrusive laws...just to keep themselves employed. It is shameful. I know there are many great cops, I just do not hear their voices speaking out against unconstitutional intrusions on our privacy and 'papers'.

Best thing about drugs is they have existed for a long time.

Yet something has changed along the path to lead to such a destruction of social fabric.

And that newly introduced thing is US citizenism.

It is not even technological progress, mass production or diversion like that.

In the amazonian jungle, a tribe used drugs for millenia. Once they got acculturated by US citizenism, they got destroyed.

Same drugs, same level of production, same, same. Save US citizenism.

It is funny to see the plagues US citizenism has brought on humanity, how successful US citizens were in developing certain seeds.

You've got it all wrong...Barry is raiding dispenseries and shutting down any drug market declared legitimate by the states (funny, he is all for the states deciding about gay marriage but not drug legalization...) under the guise of federal laws.  What is really all about is future profits for Big Pharma.  Big Pharma is worried that if any of the little guys establish a lasting market presence (or brand) that when the time comes and pot is legalized it will be much more difficult for Big Pharma to break into a hugely profitable market.  They give big donations to the President so he protects their present and FUTURE interests.  Barry is a winner...he always has been...just look at his record.  Big Pharma and Big Banks love the guy!

Soon we will start to see a gradual rise in the death rate of the Japanese population, (if the data is accurately published).

Compound that with a gradual population decline since the mid 1970. 

Then add a few other culture quirks... like, ‘‘moto ni nodouru’’, pregnant women should only eat food which is grown in Japanese soil.......

And of course the government is saying all is well........... no soil contamination....

I voted for the guy even though I was pretty sure his promises were bullshit.  How could a black guy who grew up in a modest household be part of the same machine as the last several Presidents?  Sure, he won't be perfect and he may not succeed with changing much of the status quo, but he'll try, right?  At least he won't start any new wars, right? At least he won't seek to strengthen the Patriot Act even more, right?   Ha.  Joke's on me and all of us who gave him a shot.  I stayed away from Hillary because I figured she was 100% certain to carry on the oligarch agenda as her husband did.  McCain was obviously part of the machine.   Anyone who still supports O is a complete hypocrite.    Anyone who believes in our two party system is either in denial or wilfully ignorant.

Most of the full auto AR pattern rifles found in circulation south of the border were sold first to the mexican government as M-series military rifles such as the M-16 and M-4, under contract.  

Yeah, the mexican government, federal, state and local, bleeds weapons continuously.    AK pattern rifles are awash on this planet.   Cheaper and easier to make than US issue weapons, and super reliable.   No need to get them EXPENSIVELY via individual sales in the U.S. resold at great personal risk for smuggling acoss the border when cheap reliable AK's can be had in mint condition at much lower prices.

So the Obama/Holder attempt to show that US semi-auto gun sales are causing mayhem in Mexico, by forcing gun stores to sell to suspected trafficers against the gun stores' will, are a PROPAGANDA EFFORT AIMED AT AMERICANS.   They could give a shit about Mexico, and they'd be right to say that the few thousand guns they subsidized across the border were a drop in the ocean in Mexico.    There are a lot of other guns over there, a lot of them sold legally under licenses granted by the U.S. govt, which the corrupt Mexican governement lost.

I agree, and would add that I think it is absurd in the extreme for the government to classify testosterone as a schedule III controlled substance.  You can get it from a doctor by prescription but many refuse to write a scrip for it because of fears of liability because of it's status, and because it is a controlled substance the tests they order to justify it's use are prohibitively expensive.  It is cheaper and easier to get it illegally from the trunk of some guys car and use it in an uncontrolled uninformed way than to go to a doctor, even if half of what is sold on the black market is horse pee.

Any drug or substance can be misused, to the point of self destruction even, and there SHOULD be effective help out there for those that need it when they do go down the abuse path, I know personally because I have a sister I have not seen or spoken to in years because of her addiction to meth.  It is heartbreaking to see someone destroy their life with drugs, but even that does not justify a war on your own people. 

As to hypocrisy, all adults are subject to it on occassion, the do as I say not as I do syndrome of being a grown up.  And the higher you are up the ladder of power the more intensely you are subjected to it.  But the claim that Obama is somehow more a hypocrite than others because he used to smoke weed in his youth is about as contrived a reason to post as anything I have yet read at ZH, if he were enforcing anti weed laws while smoking a fatty I would say that was hypocritical of him, just as it was hypocritical for Hoover to serve bourbon at White House parties during prohibition.  But to accuse someone of hypocrisy because their JOB is to enforce our laws and one of the laws CONGRESS has made is that pot is illegal, though the president used to smoke it long ago, that is just an excuse to bash Obama.  Hey, I did not vote for the guy, but Obama does not make our laws, congress does, you want to point out the hypocrisy of government point out the names of those that MAKE marijuana illegal in congress who smoke or used to smoke.  Then I will agree.  Till then I am an adult that will make up his own political mind about what is and is not hypocritical.

Perhaps some here would like the president to have the power to decide which laws he wishes to enforce and skip the ones he doesn't.  At this point our CONGRESS maintains those laws on the books and I am really uncomfortable with the concept of the executive cherry-picking what laws he likes or will not enforce.  It will be hard if not imposssible at this point to get a president that never smoked a J, and the few people out there we all went to school with, the ones that were holier than thou, the ones with a stick up their asses who never even tried the stuff, as for me I do not want such an anal douchebag for president.  In fact the president SHOULD enforce the drug laws to the maximum extent possible no matter the expense, and when half the population are in jail maybe congress will finally get the message and repeal prohibitions of all sorts.

When the laws are written by corrupt oligarchs, ANYONE with a conscience should be on the lookout for laws not to enforce.  From the president all the way down to the local vice cop.  This is why the oligarchs carefully choose such people to have no conscience- so that they can make an infinite pile of laws and selectively enforce them against the honest and uppity, while hiding behind the law themselves.

If all laws were enforced, everyone would be in jail.  Read "Three felonies a day".  That's how many you commit without even knowing.  Do you really want the president to ruin hundreds of millions of lives just to prove a point?  Most politicians would gladly do this for their puppetmasters, and continually seek the mandate to do it (false flags, CIA drug smuggling, etc.) 

Evil is still evil even if some pieces of paper give you a license to do it and call it a "duty".  The moral duty to detect and resist evil still rests with individuals.  If you become a puppet of the all-consuming paper-Beast, you lose your soul.  I think the drug war will be seen as one of the great evils of history.

I'm totally on board with the hypocrisy commentary.  But I have another gripe with this whole issue, too.  PR and 'sending a message'.  As the father of 2 sons in their teen years, I'm not spending time scaring them with "dope stories" about how it can kill you.  My parents tried it and it didn't work - so it won't work with kids who are better informed today.

However, I do spend time discussing with them exactly why I no longer smoke, and have substantially reduced my alcohol intake.  I never tried any other drugs, never saw the need to, and while I won't spend time scaring my kids off of trying those, either - I would appreciate if the president of our country didn't talk about "doing a little blow". 

Kids take messages from the leaders they see - and while I completely agree with Charles Barkely's "I'm not a role model, parents are role models" comment, it's worth remembering that as a public figure, some people are capable of sending powerful messages whether they intend to or not.

This president has sent all the wrong messages, from economics, to politics, to personal behavior, to our kids.  He's hoping his "cool" factor will help him in his attempts to brainwash them into believing the state can cure all ills with his fascist approach to managing things.

Hypocrisy is a huge problem with this president.  Massive.  But kids don't care about hypocrisy.  The immortal teen years are rife with hypocritical behaviors and beliefs, all of which get slowly sorted out over time.  Sometimes that hypocrisy grows (as in the case of most politicians such as Obama), but for some it diminishes (as in the case of most Libertarians).  I'm finding Obama increasingly problematic, and while the 'other option' of Romney is no winning improvement, I am much more comfortable with Romney than Obama.  It won't matter a hill of beans which one the sheeple vote in, to be honest, but Romney is at least somewhat more tolerable in certain respects.  Obama is no longer tolerable.  It is time for him to go.

They're all hypocrites, Obama is pretty average on this one.

George Washington had a post about the War With Drugs the other day. Couldn't agree more.

The main problem is that drugs are such a profitable tool for mind control, criminalizing the poor, getting cash to the secret police to circumvent congress and influence other countries that governments simply can't seem to forego the opportunity.

They learned from the prohibition of alcohol how you can create a vast criminal/spy network if there is a profit lever, and selling arms just doesn't have the same ease as drugs. After WWII the mighty US mob network was dispatched to Europe to gain control, starting in Italy then setting up the French Connection.

Time after time journalists try to out this practice but frankly it is ignored. Today the massive drug/weapon/terror merry go round is in Mexico. A nice convenient stew pot to recycle cash and create a tool for taxing the poor in the US.

If you read spanish, I highly recommend this book:

The relationship US citizen upkeep between what they have pushed forward so much, free will and products that are known to deprive from and destroy free will is very interesting.

None of these societies swooped so low as US citizens when it comes to the destruction of human lifes through uses of drugs.

Once again, US citizens rise above everyone else and by far.

It is funny to consider that it comes in the same time as the worshipping of the so called and fuzzy concept of free will.

As if US citizens could only thrive by destroying what they are supposed to protect.

I live in North Dakota when the farmers were planting we got chemtrailed every day for about a month , they say it is to cool the planet by reflecting the sun so why spray it for a month over planting time. They will be back in August/Sept time for harvest , I guess i am just a crazy con/theorist.

They've been spraying like MUTHERS out here in SE MT lately. Have some cellphone pics.  Shit looks like a checkerboard.

For crying out loud.......get it right.

"pakalolo (Hawaiian slang for marijuana, meaning “numbing tobacco”)"

Pakalolo actually means crazy weed. The locals use the word lolo regularly. For example- " Hey bra....you lolo or what?" or " Wow braddah , that haole is one lolo buggah."

Maybe President 'Buzz' is finally onto something, here.  Best to avoid the Green-shit, though.

I agree that hypocrisy is a bad thing, and I agree that government has no business making criminals out of ordinary citizens and waging war on us for ingesting substances they don't want us to, be that pot or steroids, or just about anything else, but if hypocrisy is where you draw the line then you have a far more target rich environment taking pot shots at the right than to abuse Obama for it.  That fat law and order drug addict Rush to start with, or the sanctity of marriage Newt.  I do not recall George BushCo's years in office being marked by protests over this very same matter though he is known to have been high on coke and weed and liquor for years on end. 

I think it is hypocritical to suddenly get uptight about political hypocrisy when it is a democrat doing it when you have more and better targets elsewhere.
