So this is one thing I can thank facebook for
While we all complain about facebook from time to time.
I usually use facebook just to host automatic feeds as of late, because I am not loving timeline.
Fortunately I made a second account that does not have time line, and I may eject one and trade it for the other.
Aside from the complaints and the conspiracies. I do like facebook, because it makes it easy to send quick alerts, and make new contacts and meet up with old acquaintances. Its been basically like the new MySpace. But a lot of people do use Facebook manually and regularly. So when I need to get info out to people directly, facebook is a great way to communicate. I have a few open forums, and I post there sometimes back and forth about topics.
But ya know being an old techy type, I still am still fond of IRC.
I remember talking to my younger brothers when I moved to Washington state, they were in Utah via IRC using mIRC (a nifty little client/interface of IRC),
IRC is a good multiplatform communication community. Open source is always good. Their are all types of IRC interfaces, because the protocol they use is fairly common. IRC for phones is good for me. Saves on texting fees too. :)-~

In other news, and this is related to facebook. Jodie Emery, the wife and partner of the famous CCHQ (Cannabis Culture Head Quarters) in Vancouver BC has come out in favor of I-502.
I have to admit, I admire Marc and Jodie a lot, as well as the activist that have stood up with the Emery’s as a community such as Greg Williams and Michelle Rainey (RIP) www.michellerainey.com/, otherwise known as the BC3.
Well, I have to concede, I was shocked by their support for I-502.
But now that one of the people I look up to in the world with high esteem, and the one who’s activism really got me fired up in 2008. I am going to bow out of the situation in Washington with I-502.
I have said my peace. I have recorded my words. Those recordings remain available and my opinion of I-502 is the the same.
However out of great respect for the Emery’s, and because I have nothing more to add to my objections.
I am going to spend less time worrying about I-502. Ron Paul is still a major focal point of my goals this year. So I am going to say C’est la vie!
I have to admit another thing. I have read more from Steve Elliot these last 2 months than in the entire time Ive known of his existence which has been for a few years anyway.
We may not agree on religion. But more power to his words about I-502. A lot of his words echoed the way that many people in the community felt about I-502.
For the sake of that and other accomplishments. I commend Steve Elliot for some really excellent articles, and for publishing the Washington Activist piece with Cydney Moore.
I also commend Russ Belville for a buch of his articles. He really is gifted, and it was fantastic to see him debate Kevin Sabet!
Peace, Pot, Liberty !
Have a great weekened! We have a bunch of stuff coming up so check back later!
