Save Money on Auto Insurance

Whether you drive a brand new vehicle or a 20-year-old jalopy, hitting the road requires buying at least minimum levels of insurance coverage.
But if you're like most people, you probably don't know what your options are or what coverage you're required to carry, let alone how to get insured without spending a fortune.
Get the Best Price
During tough times like these, insurance companies need your business just as much as you need insurance. This can lead to cheap car insurance rates you might otherwise never expect.

If you're willing to learn, take advantage of a competitive marketplace and compare quotes from more than one insurer, we can help you find the right policy now—affordably, quickly and easily.

So read on for tips and tricks to getting insured, then request your free quotes above. The road to savings starts here!

Secrets You Should Know
Before you accept just any old policy sitting on a shelf, there are some things you should know about insurance rates, the factors that affect your premiums, and how to be your own best advocate when it comes to pricing, namely:
◦Insurers determine premiums mainly by ratings. You're rated according to the amount of claims risk you present, then grouped with others like you with similar risk rates. Factors like age and gender, where you live, your driving record, your marital status, any prior insurance coverage, how far you drive annually and your vehicle's make and model all affect your ratings.
◦Discounts can dramatically lower rates. Insurers reward those considered low risk with discounts that can translate into amazing savings. Some of those available include multiple vehicles, educated driver, good student, safe vehicle, low-mileage and multiple policies.

◦Each state sets its own insurance requirements. Depending on whether your state is a tort or a no-fault state, the type and amount of car insurance you're required to carry by law varies. Check with your state insurance department to find out how your state operates and the legal limits that apply.

◦Consider optional coverage for your own protection. Unless you drive an older vehicle, you'd be wise to purchase collision and comprehensive coverage for your car. Collision covers damage when your vehicle impacts another car or fixed object, and comprehensive pays for damage from almost all other causes.

◦Compare multiple quotes before making your final decision. By comparing rates and policies side by side, you can get insured more cheaply than ever before. All it takes is a few minutes, some basic information and wise decision-making.

Now that you better understand your options, it's time to get insured. So for maximum savings, drive safely, avoid tickets and accidents, and heed these secrets to saving money on auto insurance. Then request your free quotes today—and watch the savings stack up.

Why Mandatory Car Insurance Hurts Good Drivers

The problem as regards mandatory insurance — and specifically, mandatory “high coverage” insurance such as my reader wants, is that it assumes we’re all dangerous/reckless/inept — and makes us pay through the nose accordingly.

But why should responsible drivers who do pay attention to their driving, who are skilled and attentive and who never get into at-fault accidents (millions of such people exist) be compelled to pay big bucks for insurance coverage that is massively expensive precisely because it is compulsory and forces them into the same risk pool with the irresponsible few such as the person who hit the guy in my example?

Granted, there is always some risk an accident or injury may occur — no matter how good the driver — anytime a person gets behind the wheel. But is it reasonable to base law on the exception rather than the rule? To require that people — everyone — insure against any conceivable risk, and to an extent that assumes the absolute “worst case” scenario?

Most of us have to strike a balance between our means and what we spend on various things. Many people would probably prefer to throw say an extra $50 each month at their mortgage balance (or the family food budget) rather than literally throw it away on an over-priced, compulsory insurance policy they will probably never need.

How Can I Prepare for an Earthquake Disaster?

Unlike weather events, earthquakes strike without warning, sometimes leaving devastation and heartache behind. Usually, earthquakes in the U.S. occur along the West Coast. However, earthquake potential exists in all states. Although nothing can stop an earthquake, careful preparation and planning can make a difference when it comes to protecting your home and family from the effects of an earthquake.

Preparation Tips

  • Develop an earthquake safety action plan for your family identifying places that can provide the highest amount of protection during an earthquake as well as an escape route and off-premises meeting place.
  • Become familiar with your community's disaster preparedness plan.
  • Teach family members how to shut off water, gas and electricity to the house.
  • Purchase at least one multi-purpose dry chemical fire extinguisher.
  • Install smoke detectors and change the batteries every six months.
  • Prepare an emergency supplies kit including a three day supply of bottled water and non-perishable food, as well as a manual can opener, paper plates, cups, utensils, first-aid kit, flashlight and battery-operated radio with extra batteries.
  • Retrofit your home's structure to better withstand the forces of an earthquake. This is a job for a professional architect, engineer or building contractor.
  • Retrofit nonstructural areas of your home to protect your personal property.
  • Attach cabinets and bookcases to the wall using brackets.
  • Secure heavy objects (e.g. television, stereos, computers, armoires) with brackets or safety straps.
  • Secure picture frames, bulletin boards and mirrors to walls using closed eye screws into wall studs.
  • Secure ceiling lights to supports using safety cables.
  • Apply safety film to windows and glass doors.
  • Anchor large appliances (e.g. refrigerator, stove) to walls using safety cables or straps.
  • Install flexible gas lines and automatic gas shutoff valves.
  • Tack down glassware, heirlooms and figurines with putty.
  • Install latches on kitchen cabinet doors to prevent items from falling.

Safety Tips

  • At the first sign of an earthquake, drop and take cover under a sturdy piece of furniture or against an inside wall away from objects that may fall on you.
  • Sit or stay close to the floor and hold on to furniture legs for balance.
  • Use your arm to cover and protect your eyes.
  • If there's no sturdy furniture nearby, kneel or sit close to the floor next to a structurally sound interior wall away from windows, shelves, or furniture that could fall and place your hands on the floor for balance.
  • Stay away from doorways, violent motion could cause the doors to slam against your body, crush your fingers or inflict other serious injuries.
  • Do not run outside.
  • If outdoors, quickly move into the open, away from electrical lines, trees and buildings.
  • If driving, bring your vehicle to a stop at the side of the road away from traffic.
  • Do not stop on or under bridges, near or under power lines or road signs.  

Recovery Tips

  • Be alert for aftershocks.
  • Look for injured victims and administer first aid.
  • Pay attention to damaged utilities. Avoid loose or dangling electric power lines and report all gas and electrical problems to the proper authorities.
  • Turn off any damaged utilities.
  • Check for fire hazards and use flashlights instead of candles or lanterns.
  • Wear protective shoes. Have them by your bed in case the earthquake happens in the middle of the night.
  • If your building is sound, stay inside and listen for radio advisories.

Auto Insurance Quotes are Cheaper in Massachusetts?

According to a recent study, in Massachusetts people get the most inexpensive auto insurance quotes. Compared to the rest of the USA, it is cheaper to buy insurance in a state like Massachusetts. In contrast the most expensive auto insurance quotes are found in the state of Louisiana. Most of Americans have a car, but owning it isn’t just a one time payment thing, even if you aren’t paying on installments, because there are many other factors that contribute to the expenses of a car.
People have to take into consideration the costs they need to pay for regular maintenance, or any fixes that occur when the car is down, and auto insurance is a necessary thing and it has proven to be something that has contributed to the consumer expenses from time to time. People sometimes wonder if they are paying the same insurance for their car as the people from other states. Auto insurance quotes are different from state to state and you would be surprised to find out that a neighboring state gets a cheaper insurance. InsWeb conducted the study that revealed Massachusetts as the state were auto insurance quotes are the most inexpensive.
InsWeb conducted the study based on the use of an affordability factor calculation. The way this works is by taking the media auto insurance rate  for each state and dividing it by the median household income. The results showed that Massachusetts had the lowest factor, and this indicates a lower average family spending on auto insurance. However the results in other states were quite different, and the state of Louisiana had the highest factor, indicating that in this state people are paying more than in the rest of the country for auto insurance.
It is recommended that before buying an car insurance, you should try and get quotes from a couple of different insurance companies.

A Review of Modern Operating Systems

These days most of us likely use more than one operating system across the devices we use each day. Whether it’s Windows on a PC at work and iOS on a personal iPhone, or Mac OSX Mavericks at home and an Android phone for work, there is more variety out there now than ever before.

Windows 8.1, (and 8 and 7)

While Windows XP is still used by nearly 30% of Microsoft Windows users, Windows 8.1 is the latest and “greatest”. While Windows 7 marked an improvement over Windows Vista, Windows 8 introduced us to a new, touch friendly, “metro” design. Windows 8.1 further improved upon the progress made in 8. Windows 8.1 features the fastest start-up of any previous Windows version. Out of the box, 8.1 includes a lot of apps and utilities that include more windowing options and better help features. The Start button is back in this version and there is more harmony between the tiled Start screen and desktop. Web browsing also gets better in 8.1 with IE11. The Windows app store is impressive, but seems to lacks some big titles. Overall, Windows 8.1 sticks to Microsoft’s strategy of delivering an operating system that’s equally at home on tablets and full-power desktop PCs, while fixing many of the flaws of Windows 8.

Mac OSX Mavericks

Mac OSX Mavericks is the latest OS for Apple Mac laptop and desktop computers. OSX Mavericks features many apps that are better looking than previous versions and lots of performance tweaks. Power users who upgrade to Mavericks can get Timer Coalescing and Energy Optimized Audio Buffers. Mac owners who only pick up their laptop when their iPad battery dies can get iBooks, Maps, the improved iCloud sync with your phone. For the average user – the regular laptop users who uses Office and Chrome and maybe a little Photoshop on the side – not much has changed from previous versions. Overall, the latest Mavericks upgrade is free, it’s faster, it has a few new and improved apps. You’ll probably see your battery life improve after a few days, but don’t expect a radical rethinking of what a desktop computer can or should be — that job seems destined for a future version of iOS.


If you’re not the biggest Windows fan, you don’t have a Mac, and you want variety, open source applications and greater security, replacing your Windows OS with a Linux OS is a great option. There are many different versions of Linux available and they range from the best looking to the best for enterprise distribution and usage. Bodhi Linux is one of the most beautiful Linux distributions, while Xubuntu and Lubuntu is probably the best performing for desktop and laptops, respectively. SUSE and Red Hat continue to be the best for business and enterprise.

 iOS 7

With Apple’s iOS 7, the latest iOS operating system, iPhones and iPads got a complete “flat” design overhaul and new useful features like automatic updates to make everyday use easier. The new Control Center gives users quick access to most-used features. AirDrop and iTunes Radio are great additions too. Sometimes the flat design concept favors space over information so you might need to do more scrolling to get the info you need. Also, some new features aren’t available for older iPhones like the iPhone 4 and 4S. Overall, iOS 7′s new design makes it a compelling upgrade that completely transforms Apple’s mobile OS.

Android 4.4 “Kit Kat”

Android 4.4 “KitKat” is an important step forward for Android. The UI is refined and elegant, there are improvements to the calling and messaging side of the platform, there is a new focus on productivity, and your favorite digital assistant is brought front and center with Google Now at maturity. There is a real focus on the consumer in this latest version of Android, with several useful new features, a noticeable bump in performance, and some optimization to ensure that budget hardware is not left behind. “KitKat” is easily the best version of the platform to date, and Google has left it up to OEMs’ when it comes to rolling out the upgrades.

22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome

What is 22q11.2 deletion syndrome?

22q11.2 deletion syndrome is a genetic disorder. In this syndrome, a tiny piece of chromosome 22 is missing. This can cause many medical problems. These problems may range from heart defects and developmental delays to seizures and effects on facial appearance. These might include cleft palate (an opening in the roof of the mouth).
In 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, a tiny piece of chromosome 22 is missing from the long arm of chromosome 22, at a location called q11.2.
Most people affected by the syndrome do not experience all the health problems that are associated with it. In general, health problems that are present due to 22q11.2 deletion syndrome can be managed with treatment, especially if they are detected early.
In the mid-1960s, an endocrinologist named Dr. Angelo DiGeorge recognized that a particular group of clinical features frequently occurred together, including the following:
  • Hypoparathyroidism (underactive parathyroid gland), which results in hypocalcemia (low blood calcium levels)
  • Hypoplastic (underdeveloped) thymus or absent thymus, which results in problems with the immune system
  • Conotruncal heart defects (such as tetralogy of Fallot, interrupted aortic arch, ventricular septal defects, vascular rings)
  • Cleft lip and/or palate
The signs and symptoms of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome can vary from one affected person to another. For that reason, several disorders and collections of symptoms caused by this syndrome have had other names in the past. These names, some of which are still used occasionally, include:
  • DiGeorge syndrome
  • Velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS)
  • Shprintzen syndrome
  • Conotruncal anomaly face syndrome (CTAF)
  • Sedlackova syndrome
In addition, some children with the syndrome were previously diagnosed with Opitz G/BBB syndrome or Cayler cardiofacial syndrome. Doctors now understand that these disorders all share the same genetic cause as 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.

Who is affected by 22q11.2 deletion syndrome?

About one in 4,000 people have 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. Some medical experts believe this number should be higher; some people with the chromosome defect have less severe symptoms that may not be diagnosed as 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. Thus, they are unaware they have the syndrome.

What causes 22q11.2 deletion syndrome?

Most people with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome are missing about 30 to 40 genes. The exact function of many of these genes remains a mystery. But one gene, TBX1, probably accounts for the syndrome's most common physical symptoms. These include heart problems and cleft palate. Another nearby gene, called COMT, may also help explain the increased risk for behavior problems and mental illness in people with the syndrome.
About 90 percent of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome cases occur randomly at fertilization or early in fetal development. So most people affected with the disorder have no previous family history of it. However, they may pass the condition on to their children. The remaining 10 percent of cases are inherited from either the mother or the father. When the condition is inherited, other family members could also be affected. Because a person who has this chromosome deletion has a 50 percent chance of passing the deletion to a child, both parents are generally offered the opportunity to have their blood studied to look for the deletion.

What are the signs and symptoms of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome?

The signs and symptoms of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome may vary widely, even among family members. At least 30 different signs or symptoms have been associated with this disorder, but most affected people only have some symptoms.
The most common symptoms include:
  • Heart defects, which are usually present from birth
  • Palate abnormalities, such as cleft palate and speech difficulties
  • Middle ear infections or hearing loss
  • Feeding difficulties
  • Low levels of calcium in the blood, due to problems with the parathyroid glands, which can trigger seizures
  • Immune system problems that can increase risk for infections
  • Kidney abnormalities
  • Spine problems, such as scoliosis (curvature in the spine) and abnormalities in the bones of  the neck or upper back
  • Learning difficulties, especially with nonverbal material, and developmental delays
  • Communication and social interaction problems, including autism
  • An increased risk for mental illness, such as anxiety, depression, or schizophrenia in adulthood
Facial features of children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome may include the following:
  • Small ears with squared upper ear
  • Hooded eyelids
  • Cleft lip and/or palate
  • Asymmetric (uneven) facial appearance when crying
  • Small mouth, chin, and side areas of the tip of the nose
The symptoms of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome may resemble other problems or medical conditions. Always consult your child's doctor for a diagnosis.

How is 22q11.2 deletion syndrome diagnosed?

In addition to a prenatal history, complete medical and family history, and a physical examination, diagnostic procedures for 22q11.2 deletion may include:
  • Blood tests and tests to examine for immune system problems
  • X-ray. A diagnostic test that uses invisible electromagnetic energy beams to produce images of internal tissues, bones, and organs onto film
  • Echocardiography. A procedure that evaluates the structure and function of the heart, by using sound waves recorded on an electronic sensor that produce a moving picture of the heart and heart valves
  • Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) studies. When features of conotruncal heart defects, clefting, other facial features, hypocalcemia, and absent thymus are identified, a blood test is usually ordered to look for a deletion in the chromosome 22q11.2 region. FISH is specifically designed to look for small groups of genes that are deleted. If the FISH test finds no deletion in the 22q11.2 region and the features of VCFS are still strongly suggestive, then a full chromosome study is usually performed to look for other chromosome defects that have been associated with this syndrome.
If a 22q11.2 deletion is detected in a child, then both parents are offered the FISH test to see if this deletion is inherited. In approximately 10 percent of families, the deletion has been inherited from one of the parents. Any individual who has this 22q11.2 deletion has a 50 percent chance, with each pregnancy, of passing it on to a child.         

How is 22q11.2 deletion syndrome treated?

There is no cure for 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, but many of its related health problems can be treated. Parents can help their child by seeking early, competent care.
Specific treatment for 22q11.2 deletion syndrome will be determined by your child's doctor based on the following:
  • Your child's age, overall health, and medical history
  • The extent of the disease
  • The type of disease
  • Your child's tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
  • Expectations for the course of the disease
  • Your opinion or preference
Treatment will also depend on the particular features in any given child and may include the following:
  • A cardiologist will evaluate heart defects and may correct them with an interventional procedure or surgery.
  • A plastic surgeon and a speech pathologist will evaluate cleft lip and/or palate defects.
  • Speech and gastrointestinal specialists will evaluate feeding difficulties. Some children with the syndrome have severe feeding difficulties and need tube feedings in order to get adequate nutrition. Feeding difficulties are not usually related to heart or palate problems, but rather to intestinal problems caused by the syndrome.
  • Immunology evaluations should be performed in all children with this deletion. Patients with T-cell dysfunction are at risk for recurrent infections. Those with severe T-cell disorders should avoid live viral vaccines. All blood products for transfusions (if needed) should be irradiated unless cleared by an immunology doctor.
Other common problems that may require treatment include:
  • Low calcium. This is common in children with the syndrome, especially right after birth. But it can also recur during stressful periods, such as during puberty or following surgery. A child may need to take calcium supplements as well as vitamin D to help absorb the calcium. A referral to an endocrinologist (doctor who specializes in treating conditions affecting the endocrine system) may be recommended.
  • Developmental difficulties. Young children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome may be slow to achieve developmental milestones, such as sitting, walking, and talking. The International 22q11.2 Deletion Syndrome Foundation recommends that parents consider physical therapy (PT), occupational therapy (OT), and speech therapy for their affected children. PT strengthens large muscles and helps children meet developmental milestones. OT focuses on small muscles used for skills, such as tying shoes and buttoning clothes. It can also help with feeding problems. Speech therapy can help address language delays that may become apparent after a child turns one year old.
A child's doctor or parents may request an evaluation to determine what services are available to assist in the management of a child with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome.

Long-term outlook for children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome

A small percentage of children with severe heart defects and immune system problems caused by 22q11.2 deletion syndrome will not survive the first year of life. However, with the proper treatment of heart defects, immune system disorders, and other health problems, the vast majority of children with a 22q11.2 deletion will survive and grow into adulthood. These children will generally need extra help throughout school and will need long-term care for their individual health needs.
Although it is not common, some children with the syndrome may have behavioral conditions, such as autism, attention deficit disorder (ADD/ADHD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), or anxiety. According to the Velo-Cardio-Facial Syndrome Educational Foundation, most individuals with the syndrome have some behavioral problems. The occurrence of psychiatric disorders is higher for adults with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome, but medical researchers are still investigating the exact nature and risk of these disorders.

When This Veteran Saw A Mexican Flag Over A U.S. Flag All Hell Breaks Loose

In today’s society there is a constant push from Liberals to make you, the American citizen, feel bad about being patriotic.
You can’t be proud to see a flag flying. You can’t wear a shirt with an American flag on it. You have to give preference to immigrants from other countries when they want to celebrate their old countries holidays. Sometimes it gets take way too far.
When this Army vet saw a shop flying the Mexican flag ABOVE the American flag he finally had enough.

The Real Reason Hemp Is Illegal

The real reason Cannabis has been outlawed has nothing to do with its effects on the mind and body. MARIJUANA is NOT DANGEROUS. Pot is NOT harmful to the human body or mind. Marijuana does NOT pose a threat to the general public. Marijuana is very much a danger to the oil companies, alcohol, tobacco industries and a large number of chemical corporations. Various big businesses, with plenty of dollars and influence, have suppressed the truth from the people.

The truth is if marijuana was utilized for its vast array of commercial products, it would create an industrial atomic bomb! Entrepreneurs have not been educated on the product potential of pot. The super rich have conspired to spread misinformation about an extremely versatile plant that, if used properly, would ruin their companies.
Where did the word ‘marijuana’ come from? In the mid 1930s, the M-word was created to tarnish the good image and phenomenal history of the hemp plant…as you will read. The facts cited here, with references, are generally verifiable in the Encyclopedia Britannica which was printed on hemp paper for 150 years:
* All schoolbooks were made from hemp or flax paper until the 1880s; Hemp Paper Reconsidered, Jack Frazier, 1974.
* It was LEGAL TO PAY TAXES WITH HEMP in America from 1631 until the early 1800s; LA Times, Aug. 12, 1981.
REFUSING TO GROW HEMP in America during the 17th and 18th Centuries WAS AGAINST THE LAW! You could be jailed in Virginia for refusing to grow hemp from 1763 to 1769; Hemp in Colonial Virginia, G. M. Herdon.
* George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and other founding fathers GREW HEMP; Washington and Jefferson Diaries. Jefferson smuggled hemp seeds from China to France then to America.
* Benjamin Franklin owned one of the first paper mills in America and it processed hemp. Also, the War of 1812 was fought over hemp. Napoleon wanted to cut off Moscow’s export to England; Emperor Wears No Clothes, Jack Herer.
* For thousands of years, 90f all ships’ sails and rope were made from hemp. The word ‘canvas’ is Dutch for cannabis; Webster’s New World Dictionary.
* 80f all textiles, fabrics, clothes, linen, drapes, bed sheets, etc. were made from hemp until the 1820s with the introduction of the cotton gin.
* The first Bibles, maps, charts, Betsy Ross’s flag, the first drafts of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution were made from hemp; U.S. Government Archives.
* The first crop grown in many states was hemp. 1850 was a peak year for Kentucky producing 40,000 tons. Hemp was the largest cash crop until the 20th Century; State Archives.
* Oldest known records of hemp farming go back 5000 years in China, although hemp industrialization probably goes back to ancient Egypt.
* Rembrants, Gainsboroughs, Van Goghs as well as most early canvas paintings were principally painted on hemp linen.
* In 1916, the U.S. Government predicted that by the 1940s all paper would come from hemp and that no more trees need to be cut down. Government studies report that 1 acre of hemp equals 4.1 acres of trees. Plans were in the works to implement such programs; Department of Agriculture
* Quality paints and varnishes were made from hemp seed oil until 1937. 58,000 tons of hemp seeds were used in America for paint products in 1935; Sherman Williams Paint Co. testimony before Congress against the 1937 Marijuana Tax Act.
* Henry Ford’s first Model-T was built to run on hemp gasoline and the CAR ITSELF WAS CONTRUCTED FROM HEMP! On his large estate, Ford was photographed among his hemp fields. The car, ‘grown from the soil,’ had hemp plastic panels whose impact strength was 10 times stronger than steel; Popular Mechanics, 1941.
* Hemp called ‘Billion Dollar Crop.’ It was the first time a cash crop had a business potential to exceed a billion dollars; Popular Mechanics, Feb., 1938.
* Mechanical Engineering Magazine (Feb. 1938) published an article entitled ‘The Most Profitable and Desirable Crop that Can be Grown.’ It stated that if hemp was cultivated using 20th Century technology, it would be the single largest agricultural crop in the U.S. and the rest of the world.
The following information comes directly from the United States Department of Agriculture’s 1942 14-minute film encouraging and instructing ‘patriotic American farmers’ to grow 350,000 acres of hemp each year for the war effort:
‘…(When) Grecian temples were new, hemp was already old in the service of mankind. For thousands of years, even then, this plant had been grown for cordage and cloth in China and elsewhere in the East. For centuries prior to about 1850, all the ships that sailed the western seas were rigged with hempen rope and sails. For the sailor, no less than the hangman, hemp was indispensable…
…Now with Philippine and East Indian sources of hemp in the hands of the Japanese…American hemp must meet the needs of our Army and Navy as well as of our industries…
…the Navy’s rapidly dwindling reserves. When that is gone, American hemp will go on duty again; hemp for mooring ships; hemp for tow lines; hemp for tackle and gear; hemp for countless naval uses both on ship and shore. Just as in the days when Old Ironsides sailed the seas victorious with her hempen shrouds and hempen sails. Hemp for victory!’
Certified proof from the Library of Congress; found by the research of Jack Herer, refuting claims of other government agencies that the 1942 USDA film ‘Hemp for Victory’ did not exist.
Hemp cultivation and production do not harm the environment. The USDA Bulletin ..404 concluded that hemp produces 4 times as much pulp with at least 4 to 7 times less pollution. From Popular Mechanics, Feb. 1938:
‘It has a short growing season…It can be grown in any state…The long roots penetrate and break the soil to leave it in perfect condition for the next year’s crop. The dense shock of leaves, 8 to 12 feet above the ground, chokes out weeds.
…hemp, this new crop can add immeasurably to American agriculture and industry.’
In the 1930s, innovations in farm machinery would have caused an industrial revolution when applied to hemp. This single resource could have created millions of new jobs generating thousands of quality products. Hemp, if not made illegal, would have brought America out of the Great Depression.
William Randolph Hearst (Citizen Kane) and the Hearst Paper Manufacturing Division of Kimberly Clark owned vast acreage of timberlands. The Hearst Company supplied most paper products. Patty Hearst’s grandfather, a destroyer of nature for his own personal profit, stood to lose billions because of hemp.
In 1937, Dupont patented the processes to make plastics from oil and coal. Dupont’s Annual Report urged stockholders to invest in its new petrochemical division. Synthetics such as plastics, cellophane, celluloid, methanol, nylon, rayon, Dacron, etc., could now be made from oil. Natural hemp industrialization would have ruined over 80f Dupont’s business.
Andrew Mellon became Hoover’s Secretary of the Treasury and Dupont’s primary investor. He appointed his future nephew-in-law, Harry J. Anslinger, to head the Federal Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.
Secret meetings were held by these financial tycoons. Hemp was declared dangerous and a threat to their billion dollar enterprises. For their dynasties to remain intact, hemp had to go. These men took an obscure Mexican slang word: ‘marihuana’ and pushed it into the consciousness of America.
A media blitz of ‘yellow journalism’ raged in the late 1920s and 1930s. Hearst’s newspapers ran stories emphasizing the horrors of marihuana. The menace of marihuana made headlines. Readers learned that it was responsible for everything from car accidents to loose morality.
Films like ‘Reefer Madness’ (1936), ‘Marihuana: Assassin of Youth’ (1935) and ‘Marihuana: The Devil’s Weed’ (1936) were propaganda designed by these industrialists to create an enemy. Their purpose was to gain public support so that anti-marihuana laws could be passed.
Examine the following quotes from ‘The Burning Question’ aka REEFER MADNESS:
a violent narcotic.
acts of shocking violence.
incurable insanity.
soul-destroying effects.
under the influence of the drug he killed his entire family with an ax.
more vicious, more deadly even than these soul-destroying drugs (heroin, cocaine) is the menace of marihuana!
Reefer Madness did not end with the usual ‘the end.’ The film concluded with these words plastered on the screen: TELL
In the 1930s, people were very naive; even to the point of ignorance. The masses were like sheep waiting to be led by the few in power. They did not challenge authority. If the news was in print or on the radio, they believed it had to be true. They told their children and their children grew up to be the parents of the baby-boomers.
On April 14, 1937, the Prohibitive Marihuana Tax Law or the bill that outlawed hemp was directly brought to the House Ways and Means Committee. This committee is the only one that can introduce a bill to the House floor without it being debated by other committees. The Chairman of the Ways and Means, Robert Doughton, was a Dupont supporter. He insured that the bill would pass Congress.
Dr. James Woodward, a physician and attorney, testified too late on behalf of the American Medical Association. He told the committee that the reason the AMA had not denounced the Marihuana Tax Law sooner was that the Association had just discovered that marihuana was hemp.
Few people, at the time, realized that the deadly menace they had been reading about on Hearst’s front pages was in fact passive hemp. The AMA understood cannabis to be a MEDICINE found in numerous healing products sold over the last hundred years.
In September of 1937, hemp became illegal. The most useful crop known became a drug and our planet has been suffering ever since.
Congress banned hemp because it was said to be the most violence-causing drug known. Anslinger, head of the Drug Commission for 31 years, promoted the idea that marihuana made users act extremely violent. In the 1950s, under the Communist threat of McCarthyism, Anslinger now said the exact opposite. Marijuana will pacify you so much that soldiers would not want to fight.
Today, our planet is in desperate trouble. Earth is suffocating as large tracts of rain forests disappear. Pollution, poisons and chemicals are killing people. These great problems could be reversed if we industrialized hemp. Natural biomass could provide all of the planet’s energy needs that are currently supplied by fossil fuels. We have consumed 80f our oil and gas reserves. We need a renewable resource. Hemp could be the solution to soaring gas prices.
Hemp has a higher quality fiber than wood fiber. Far fewer caustic chemicals are required to make paper from hemp than from trees. Hemp paper does not turn yellow and is very durable. The plant grows quickly to maturity in a season where trees take a lifetime.
ALL PLASTIC PRODUCTS SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP SEED OIL. Hempen plastics are biodegradable! Over time, they would break down and not harm the environment. Oil-based plastics, the ones we are very familiar with, help ruin nature; they do not break down and will do great harm in the future. The process to produce the vast array of natural (hempen) plastics will not ruin the rivers as Dupont and other petrochemical companies have done. Ecology does not fit in with the plans of the Oil Industry and the political machine. Hemp products are safe and natural.
MEDICINES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. We should go back to the days when the AMA supported cannabis cures. ‘Medical Marijuana’ is given out legally to only a handful of people while the rest of us are forced into a system that relies on chemicals. Pot is only healthy for the human body.
WORLD HUNGER COULD END. A large variety of food products can be generated from hemp. The seeds contain one of the highest sources of protein in nature. ALSO: They have two essential fatty acids that clean your body of cholesterol. These essential fatty acids are not found anywhere else in nature! Consuming pot seeds is the best thing you could do for your body. Eat uncooked hemp seeds.
CLOTHES SHOULD BE MADE FROM HEMP. Hemp clothing is extremely strong and durable over time. You could hand clothing, made from pot, down to your grandchildren. Today, there are American companies that make hemp clothing; usually 50emp. Hemp fabrics should be everywhere. Instead, they are almost underground. Superior hemp products are not allowed to advertise on fascist television. Kentucky, once the top hemp producing state, made it ILLEGAL TO WEAR hemp clothing! Can you imagine being thrown into jail for wearing quality jeans?
The world is crazy…but that does not mean you have to join the insanity. Get together. Spread the news. Tell people, and that includes your children, the truth. Use hemp products. Eliminate the word ‘marijuana.’ Realize the history that created it. Make it politically incorrect to say or print the M-word. Fight against the propaganda (designed to favor the agenda of the super rich) and the bullshit. Hemp must be utilized in the future. We need a clean energy source to save our planet. INDUSTRIALIZE HEMP!
The liquor, tobacco and oil companies fund more than a million dollars a day to Partnership for a Drug-Free America and other similar agencies. We have all seen their commercials. Now, their motto is: It’s more dangerous than we thought. Lies from the powerful corporations, that began with Hearst, are still alive and well today.
The brainwashing continues. Now, the commercials say: If you buy a joint, you contribute to murders and gang wars. The latest anti-pot commercials say: If you buy a joint…you are promoting TERRORISM! The new enemy (terrorism) has paved the road to brainwash you any way THEY see fit.
There is only one enemy; the friendly people you pay your taxes to; the war-makers and nature destroyers. With your funding, they are killing the world right in front of your eyes. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY TOBACCO. HALF A MILLION DEATHS EACH YEAR ARE CAUSED BY ALCOHOL. NO ONE HAS EVER, EVER DIED FROM SMOKING POT!! In the entire history of the human race, not one death can be attributed to cannabis. Our society has outlawed grass but condones the use of the KILLERS: TOBACCO and ALCOHOL. Hemp should be declassified and placed in DRUG stores to relieve stress. Hardening and constriction of the arteries are bad; but hemp usage actually enlarges the arteries…which is a healthy condition. We have been so conditioned to think that: Smoking is harmful. That is NOT the case for passive pot.
Ingesting THC, hemp’s active agent, has a positive effect; relieving asthma and glaucoma. A joint tends to alleviate the nausea caused by chemotherapy. You are able to eat on hemp. This is a healthy state of being.
The stereotype for a pothead is similar to a drunk, bubble-brain. Yet, the truth is ones creative abilities can be enhanced under its influence. The perception of time slightly slows and one can become more sensitive. You can more appreciate all arts; be closer to nature and generally FEEL more under the influence of cannabis. It is, in fact, the exact opposite state of mind and body as the drunken state. You can be more aware with pot.
The pot plant is an ALIEN plant. There is physical evidence that cannabis is not like any other plant on this planet. One could conclude that it was brought here for the benefit of humanity. Hemp is the ONLY plant where the males appear one way and the females appear very different, physically! No one ever speaks of males and females in regard to the plant kingdom because plants do not show their sexes; except for cannabis. To determine what sex a certain, normal, Earthly plant is: You have to look internally, at its DNA. A male blade of grass (physically) looks exactly like a female blade of grass. The hemp plant has an intense sexuallity. Growers know to kill the males before they fertilize the females. Yes, folks…the most potent pot comes from ‘horny females.’
The reason this amazing, very sophisticated, ET plant from the future is illegal has nothing to do with how it physically affects us..
