Why Are Democrats So Against Ensuring Election Integrity?
"Isn't it interesting that the democrats or the people that run the federal government. They never get in the way. When states relaxed their own voting laws for example when california loud mail in balloting. The federal government's have let's states rights issue when oregon went to universal mail in balloting. They said well. That's a states rights issue when colorado went to near mail and universal balloting a states rights issue when illegals now can vote in municipal elections in california. And they're trying to get that done in vermont. they say well. That's a states rights issue when all of a sudden cities like portland and seattle chicago and new york. They want to disobey federal immigration law. The federal government says well. That's a states rights. Issue when colorado wants to legalize marijuana or crystals or whatever kind of mushrooms. I guess denver wanted to do. I guess they did that recently. Say that's a states rights issue even though it's against federal law you could. You could argue. That shouldn't be but it is but the moment that the forty eighth state in the union decides to check the process of how their own elections were conducted. The federal government threatens to go full little rock nine on them threatens to go full federal force against them why politico dot com last week in us. We're so busy last week covering so many stories but this just as applicable today as it was a couple of days ago department of justice fires warning shot against unusual post election ballot reviews the justice department new memo reminded states that allowing ballots to be mishandled can violate federal. Let me stop nowhere. Does it say audits are against federal law. They're saying that. If you don't do the audit correctly it could be against federal law. This feels like federal intimidation. And you see this is so. It's so hypocritical. it's so contradictory. But it's so typical of the democrat party and the american left and the collectivists. Which is they're all for states rights and the tenth amendment if it fits their socially degenerate aims if it fits their relax voting measures that they want but the moment that a state wants to use states rights to try to ensure election integrity. They are going to use the federal government to try to intimidate them and intervene at any means possible.

What we know is hemp source of cloth rope and disgusting. Health foods cannabis grew really easily and a lot of different environments especially ones. We disturbed to build settlements. It was literally a weed. That's why we call it weed. And so there was probably a lot of cannabis just growing in central and east asia both the high mountainous regions and the low parts and so a really longtime ago as long as maybe twelve thousand years ago people figured out ways to use it. It appears for both populations. Initially people used it for the seeds which are edible You know you can buy them in. Eat them nowadays. Emcees are often founded natural food stores. Today they're full of wonderful nutrients but they taste terrible. And before you all right in and tell me i'm wrong. not only to. Cynthia agree with me.

Because of qualified immunity it's a legal doctrine which prevents was actually an extra shield of buffer for police officers right knowing that they can't get sued civilly for their indiscretions which is yes. Oh police reform bills are trying to end. That clyburn came out and said he's in favor of compromising and not including removal of qualified immunity in a bill. In order to proceed. He literally said if if you don't get qualified immunity now then we'll come back and try to get it later but i don't want to see us throughout a good bill because we can't get a perfect bill. It's not a good bill. If you don't remove the say it's not a good bill well and it. I miss going down that path to this whole thing two.

You have to drink water all over. Your face is wrong with you anyway. If an officer the law were to be put on probation or quote unquote loser. Position of based on something they did they could quite easily just moved to another division within the police department and continue along. It's called the wandering place. It's a situation where you don't actually get fired. You can just kind of get retest if you will also even more so i. I'd never heard that term but it makes sense even when you get fired. The coffee get hired other police as yet because they don't do correct you can still be a policeman in a bunch of places an officer. Sorry and a bunch of places or you can just get another position. Say can if you have a job in finance you get fired you can pick up into the finance job but finance for fraud cannot if i got working fine as i got caught for fraud or you know.

"marijuana" Discussed on Morgellons Discussion
"Welcome. Back to our show, we're goals discussion the podcast. On Anchor, FM I'm your host Jeremy Murphy and today I want to talk about two Paralympic topics, more gallons, disease and marijuana at face value. There's probably not much intersection between the two topics. However, what I'd like you to consider is that being prolific topics, they are often used out of context against an individual. For an example, any kind of marijuana use would be considered cannabis use disorder by any physician who didn't believe that cannabis could actually be used as medication and we know from science and from the government's own research on the subject and of course, include links description below to the night papers that marijuana is a medicine cannabis use disorder is described as using marijuana to appoint. Catches an individual from the ability to function in life. As we know, however, medical marijuana is most often utilized to increase an individual's ability to function in society to go back to work to participate in social activities to pay attention in school. So to say that someone has cannabis use disorder simply because they live in a state where cannabis is not safe to legally access is also wrong but it's a tactic that's often employed by physicians who fail to recognize the evidence that marijuana does work as medicine once they hear that word marijuana, they immediately assume. That the person is abusing narcotics regardless of the facts or the outcome of their use, and that's where a physician has to take a deeper dive and understanding how is cannabis use affecting my patient or if they've been able to start going back to church since they started using it to their friends and family notice a positive improvement in their life. In the same vein, more gallons is often used out of context, a physician who fails to understand the science that Ellen's is an actual condition evolving a biological process with an infectious agent will often assume that. A patient who says the term more gallons is delusional and needs anti psychotics regardless if the patient is presenting with microscopic filaments embedded in their skin tissues, there's a difference of perception between a physician who understands more gallons and a physician who only knows about what the media has reported on the two thousand, twelve CDC study, and what they know is often skewed by whichever outlets they subscribe to. The fact of the matter is the CD study in two, thousand, twelve was inconclusive. It states that it could not determine if more gallons was a new condition subsequent. Research has verified the CDC findings that eighty three percent of filaments were of human origin, and we now even have images photographed which show the bacterial infected cells that produce these filaments and a thousand times magnification making the morgue Elon fibers. So just because you talk about more gallons or raise the subject with someone does not mean that you're delusional and you shouldn't be treated that way. It's really the air of the physician to not understand that more gallons is an actual condition or that marijuana is actually medicine if you live in a state where marijuana is. I definitely feel your pain more gallons is pretty much illegal everywhere to well, it's definitely misunderstood just because you have sores on your body and you happen to understand the science that gallons a condition of microscopic fibers embedded in the skin tissue does not make delusional. It doesn't mean that you're fixated on the condition. You could be talking about it several times a month, and that's just not enough evidence to determine between being obsessed being passionate like with marijuana, the physician has to delve deeper and. Understand, what this patient have to say about more gallons are they saying that it's a condition I've got these sores when I look at it with the microscope sixty times I bought on Ebay for five bucks I see the microscopic fibers you can see two very clearly there in the skin or they saying, yeah. Breathed in a bunch of Kim trails and look at these long ask fibers on the top of my hair. If you watch, they'll move and I got this right after I got vaccinated. That doesn't mean that they're delusional either that simply means that they may have the wrong ideas about the condition. They may actually have it if the doctor looks inside their source and he sees microscopic filaments, he could understand that yes, this person has more gallons, but they just have the wrong ideas about it doctors. I believe most doctors go into medicine to help people, and unfortunately I feel like a bad information has been put up along the. Years and the most recent decades especially because you shouldn't have people walking around town with sores all over the body haven't seen thirty or forty doctors and being afraid that they're going to go to jail for smoking weed. This is the twenty first century I mean, if we can't make life a little bit easier, these people, how much can we say we've really progressed as a society I? Think it just takes a lot more understanding law more. Empathy for sure and a lot less being judgmental dogmatic. Hey I'm one of the worst people in regards to being non-judgmental dogmatic but the fact is I'm trying to grow in that direction because everything isn't black and white, and there's definitely a nuance to each situation. However, once those facts are listed, then things can become more clear but I don't think that can be accomplished with just surface value if you're someone talking about marijuana that doesn't mean. That they have cannabis use disorder. If you hear somebody saying something about more gallons that does not mean that they are delusional or obsessed it's just an aspect of their life and talking about it probably makes them feel better everybody should understand what it feels like to not be able to speak their mind because of fear of the repercussions and why we're an open society, we should be able to freely discuss these ideas and concepts with each other. What do you guys leave me a message here on Acre FM definitely having a great time making the show I. Appreciate. You guys letting me know that you'll appreciate my efforts and everybody who share in this podcast out on your blog. Keep going guys I. Definitely we can't do this without each other our ob guys other great week and we'll see..
"marijuana" Discussed on InPennyStock | Penny Stock Trader
"Hope you're doing well today. I WanNa talk about a very special topic. That's super important in breaking not right now. which is how to properly invest in marijuana stocks? Okay there's a few key steps that I would recommend anyone doing in order to understand the landscape right regardless and I say this often but would what the lessons I try to teach our regardless of your background and experience. Okay so whenever I talk about these socks. I try to think about it from a first time trader perspective. So if you're in your twenties thirties forties whatever whatever age you are if you have traded or haven't in this episode. I'm GonNa talk about how to invest in marijuana stocks. Okay pot stocks cannabis stocks. It's it's all kind of the same general realm and it's super important nowadays because of the crazy amount of growth that's able to happen in that industry all right and being. CPA and also being a VP finance in one of the top companies in the industry able to have a first hand experience. It's an outlook on the space right. I'm dealing with these public companies all the times different. MSL's which multi state operators and different ancillary Lurie top public companies in space. So this isn't investment advice in any means you know talk to your financial advisor this is purely just a methodology eh and inability for me to be able to explain to you guys how you can look into investing into marijuana stocks. Okay so the first step is understanding that. At least two different variations of cannabis stocks. All right because a lot of times people get confused and hear all these these different terminology so there's medical and recreational marijuana right and even in that scenario that'll be that'll be split into two different scenarios but say in the United States right. There's probably about thirty three states. Roughly right now out of fifty obviously where medical marijuana is legal meaning doctors offers and healthcare institutions hospitals are able to prescribe medical marijuana to their patients so they consuming it. You know it's user for example depression Whatever is proper medicine that's legal and is allowed to be utilized for those patients. And then what's happening now is that there's probably about ten states in the United States where it's recreationally legal and so people are starting to feel that eventually it's going to be legal across the United States which will then have all the other countries follow as well and that will allow for a massive massive increase in the market cap or in the worldwide spending on cannabis. Alright is already you know. There's reports by the ARC view market research in Beedi SNL Worldwide spending on cannabis was around twelve billion in two thousand eighteen. And just a few years later is going to be about thirty three to thirty six billion. So it's looking at. The industry might double or increase raced by one hundred percent year after year. Essentially and so that's why becomes such an attractive market are you can almost look at this like the dot com era so just how many people are rich in the DOT COM era. There was also a ton of people that tried to hold onto longer. Got Too greedy. And that's what we're here here at Penny stock to help you avoid to help you be able to be on the profitable side of the trading. Okay so going back to. The tube hooped types of marijuana. Yes there's medical recreational but one thing I would definitely make clear of is that there's your thc. which is the actual growers right? The actual psychoactive plant. That makes you go. Hi and then there's the CBC portion of it all right the CD. Portion is the one that doesn't have any psychoactive collective properties all right and has several health benefits. And it's used to treat epilepsy. Different syndromes if medicines sins and so you'll find that's Charlotte's web if you hear that term or hemp that is all in its own sector so in future episodes breakout specifically specifically the differences. But just keep that in mind as you look to invest in this space right now you should see. Is that a lot of the Times. The the the space of cannabis itself has very particular elements. But fortunately the great thing about the space is that there's not a massive massive amount of players are right. There's about fifty public companies. Am I sound like a lot. But if you research the industry for about a few weeks so even a month or so you'll be able to have a really really good grasp of the space. And that's a rare of other spaces where there's hundreds if not thousands of companies unease and you can't really get a grasp on all the names all of the different companies that are involved right so definitely recommend and to be able to figure out where the publicly traded candidates stocks are. You can use different stock. Screeners like fin viz or a great website that I use and I'm not affiliated with with them in any way but it's just a resource an APP on my phone. That kind of keeps me up to date with the sector and the reason it's important for me is because I'm a VP APIA finance in industry in the realm. So it's a little bit more important for me to stay on. Top of all of the changes and all of the financing or financial financial news in the space and so that website is new cannabis ventures DOT COM and. It's just a great Khan website or even as it has iphone apps that I have just gives me notifications on a daily basis in a one or two big pieces of news or headlines that have happened in the space or like when companies reporting earnings. How they're doing. And so you can see you know. Just scrolling on it right now. The big companies. Gti Tilt Holdings I- antics. They're all reporting high levels of growth millions and millions of dollars of growth and they're also raising millions of dollars of funds. So you can see that back doc. It's an exciting space. There's a lot of room for growth all right some of the most popular ones. I just want to kind of list Out so you have heard it and you'll see it. More and more is a canopy growth right that stock ticker symbol. CG See Aurora Cannabis this Cronos Group till Ray GTI which I mentioned before stands for Green Thumb Industries ton of Charlotte's web which is a CD. Dd One I mentioned CRESCO Labs Madman enterprises you've probably you're in the coastal regions of New York or La.. You know you'll probably have heard of them. But fortunately there is not a crazy large amount of these types of stocks. And so you're able to have an understanding of it you know there's the actual Growers or retailers. There's the biotech portion so like all the pharmaceutical companies in the space say just GW pharmaceuticals That's on that's actually listed on the Nasdaq with the stock ticker symbol. Gwp H. M.. But yeah I mean that is kind of the core elements of the marijuana space right. How to invest in marijuana stocks and different pot stocks to watch. You wanted to be wary that this industry is still emerging. There's a lot navolato eating a lot of rules and now what recently happened. And I'm GonNa just going to be an opinion piece of advice but in November about midway through November of two thousand nineteen eighteen. There was a bill passed through the house in the United States. Congress saying that. There's going to be a legalization or that. They're approving the legalization of marijuana on the federal level. Now that gave a lot of rally to the recent stocks and people are getting very gung ho about it personally. I don't feel that it will pass the Senate given that the Senate currently is Republican owned and there's a majority is Republicans so I think it's going to fail there but it's still it's still shows was that the country is moving in that direction and that you can kind of set yourself up to be able to be in a favorable position once the legislation has actually passed on on it because once it becomes federally legal federally legal than you know. There's no cap to this. Then you're going to see all of these companies five or ten x And the real ones obviously are the ones that are going to be able to grow the false ones. That are just kind of trying to ride the hype. They'll get exposed and die out. It happens in every company in every realm. So or you're going to want to do is really do. I wouldn't necessarily say this is a technical analysis play which is usually when I recommend so in this scenario recommend actually looking at the fundamentals of the candidates stocks right look at take five. Everton or like an a one or two hour course on how to analyze financial statements and you'll get an understanding of okay being able to seize this company just massively in debt and about to run out of money or very profitable and they're growing in a very sustainable fashion right. You don't want to invest in like another we work and if if you don't know that news gotta look it up. It's a very interesting story of things going on right now in that realm. But YOU WANNA be able to invest in the Coca Cola. Pretty much of the industry and so that you'll only be able to find by doing the proper research and due diligence on your side and for more specifics. We teach that at in Penny Stock Dot DOT COM and in Penny Stock University.
