How to Jihad

Golly, lotta people out there arguing over this. Arguing for the sake of argument, and not too much more. not a tip toer meself, let's rock it out - i've been on a serious Jihad for about five years now. It's a heck of a trip, gotta tell ya, and it's the only thing worth doin' - least for some of us. And it's fun. And it's non-violent.

Best Jihadist of the last century: Ghandi

Not Jihad: Osama bin Laden, Saddham Hussein

Ever wonder why it seems like the Arab world is crazy - cause crazy makes the headlines, and submissive Islamic people ain't newsworthy - it's like if you judged America by Timothy McVeigh or some such crap. Looking at the world from their perspective is like us looking at them from our perspective - of course the pisser here is that the only folks who're gonna read this are gonna have to be on the Internet - and that's a fairly erudite group, most of them (I assume) know better than to hate other people as a group. It's like saying New Jersey belongs under the ocean. Yes, there is a lot of crud in NJ. Then again, meet a guy from New Jersey, tell him you're from Jersey, and you've got a new best friend - literally - those folks STICK TOGETHER!!! And that's rad, and that's healthy, and that's Jihad, ya'll. Stickin together, working as a team -- those are ideals that we all know work wonders when it's for the betterment of the earth, and not against some other group. Anyhow, this tiny miniscule ant is off to pick pears and make some yogurt and gleefully accept his puniness with a glass of coffee and a grin,
good luck
good love
rock on

ps Yeeeeehaw = Jihad in English

The Holy War Against Atomic Compounds

Well, that title says most of it. They're fighting things they don't understand, cause they're too chick-livered to fight things like hate, rape, violence etc... It's classic. And so now I live in a police state, America. Man o man o man. Whatta day. Whatta year. 20 billion or so according to the War on Drugs Clock jeez.... couldn't there be a more useful way to spend money? Fighting plants, fighting atoms, fighting things that occur naturally. Fighting the way people think by putting them in jail when they don't agree, or when their minds work differently from other people's. Prozac won't work on me. Neither will Ritalin. Cannabinoids mediate my central medial hypothalamus - an overactive part of my mind, and allow me some rest.

Marijuana and prayer go together like peas carrots and and black eyed peas. it's a known fact. Bob Marley preached it. That's almost passe now, though - the thought of fasting a week and smoking up and praying... yeah, that's right - giving thanks - peacefully, alone, silently - listening to God as the the world winds itself around It's Mighty Will. Whatever anyone else is talking about I'll never know, that moment of submission to Will is the only ecstacy worth mentioning, and yes, it can be enjoyed without cannabinoids, and yes, it can be enjoyed with them. It's personal, it's beyond words, and it's WELL BEYOND THE BOUNDS OF THE FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL AUTHORITIES TO DICTATE! Those blind cowards. I do not hate them, I don't hate anyone. Hate of humanity is forbidden to me by my Master.

Please - if you have any recourse on this matter take your free will into account, and hold yourself accountable - Are you a police officer? Do not look for drugs - they are not your concern. Are you a District Attorney? Do not prosecute drug cases. Are you a politician? Do not pass laws with regards to drugs - in so far as no one knows what a given chemical means to a given set of neurons.

Does this banter seem like blabber? Straighten your spine, men, women - read, learn, study - see if these are lies.
