Anyone up for some newspeak and jaberwockey? See
California DARE Days, 2001

I don't know about ya'll, but this sort of thing really burns me up. DARE is  NOT effective! (unless, by effective, you mean profitable) They most certainly do  NOT provide accurate information about alcohol and other drugs (can't even acknowledge in plain terms that alcohol is a drug, forchristsake!) And it does not improve self esteem. The only study that I know of that even examined that last question found a slight incidence of  lowered self esteem among DARE graduates!

Recently, some diplomat or other, I forget which one, declared the US as the Taliban of international drug policy. That is so true. I don't know if any of ya'll are aware of it or not, but Canada has decriminalized MJ, whether for medical or recreational use. And So. American state governors as well as national leaders, who haven't been able to come together on  anything for the past 50 - 100 years, have come together on one point; we  must end the drug war. You won't read or hear about in in the US media unless a lot more people start pressuring our own local papers and broadcast stations to cover the damned story.

If you want to know anything about what's going on down there, see Narco News Al Giordano, a rather well respected international journalist, has been translating selected news items from Mexican, Colombian and other latin language newspapers for about 2 years now. Seems to be working. He's now being sued by BANAMEX Bank for translating spanish news items into English and sending them to US journalists and his regular readership base.

Funny you should say that
That's exactly the sort of thing I need for the archive! It's going in. I was wondering if ya'll would help me out with a little research on another article?

The following story, and photo-op for block monitoring that it tels about, both look like a minor rework of any of a number of such media stunts put together by a tightly knit, unimaginably well funded, carefully camaflaged conspiracy to normalize fascism; the DFAF.

I'm looking for anything, past or present, hard print or vague memory, relating to every individual, organization and project mentioned in this article. I'm going to stuff them into a database and add a search box to the search results. That way, we can wander through the x-references just by copying and pasting words from the article to see what we've got.

If this flies, I think I might do the same for different geographic locations. So please forward this out to anyone who might be interested no matter where they are?

If there's a worse idea going than locking kids up for victimless crimes, it's probably locking them in close proximity to some tyrannical altruist bent on helping them whether they need it or not.

Re: Taking over the world
Yeah, we had those raps. You didn't? DARE was THE main reason why I started looking into homeschooling 4 years ago. Turns out there are a lot of good reasons to do it, but that was the impetus... I saw what the whole zero tollerance, zero respect, zero thought mentality was doing to my older daughter and most of her friends.

Web forum hosting / Invitation and terms of use
« on: December 17, 2001, 07:42:00 PM »
Just wanted to thank you for dropping in and sort of lay out what I'm planning here.

I'm inviting anyone who's currently admining a web forum that I hang out in to set up camp over here. The main reason is that I'm just tired of waiting so long for each page load and of those pop-up javascript ads that sometimes crash my browser or freeze my system.

There will never be any charge for hosting or using these forums! I may put a 'sponsored by' ad in a footer or header or custom theme or something. But I promise no animations and no annoying pop-ups.

The other benefit is that I have access to the raw data. So, in the event that we ever have to shut this down, it'll be very easy to recover the data.

Register a username and let me know wich one so that I can upgrade your access and you can play with the admin features. Leme know what you think. If there's something you need that this gizmo doesn't do already, there's a good chance I can make it work.
