A Sweet Paradox

A while back, outside of Hooka, Sage called my comment below a sweet paradox. I thought I'd share it with the brilliant hive mind of the Hooka, and I'm not being sarcastic when I say brilliant.

***

Memphis, TN found a loophole that gave them the leverage to sell two public parks to a nonprofit recently, and the nonprofit immediately chose to remove the statues honoring Confederate Soldiers while continuing to embrace the public access to the parks.

Of course, there are plenty who are losing their minds over this just as they probably lost their minds when NFL players started taking a knee and "disrespecting the flag"

I'd like to know how anyone who's pissed off about the NFL players can support monuments to those WHO ACTUALLY FOUGHT AGAINST THE FLAG AND COUNTRY

It's a dangerous kind of logic to possess.
And definitely can't be reason with.

I suspect it actually has more to do with melanin,
than logic.

Some people seem to leap into their cognitive distortions feet first. There's nothing for it. I just make fun of them on Facebook usually.

Because in their minds those monuments represent a group of people who were fighting for a better version of would-be America.

I'm not getting into any long flaming war, finger pointing with anyone, and I have held back from saying anything in the past, but I feel it's time I spoke my piece.

It's all in your perspective, most people ONLY think of slavery, and it's a done deal...it's way more than that. All my family, and ancestors are from the south. We know nothing of the real reasons for the war, you can't get away from the bellowing of slavery, from anyone not from the south, and I have also read it was taxes. Things were 1000 times different then, think about it... Most bathed once a week, everyone had to know how to care for horses, and used them for all transportation. Where we can drive a distance in a day, would take them days, or weeks. They had no communication i.e. phone, tv, radio... so we really haven't a clue as to what it was really like to live back then.

"Between the years 1800 and 1860, arguments between the North and South grew more intense, which was known as Sectionalism. One of the main quarrels was about taxes paid on foreign goods: this tax was referred to as a tariff. Southerners believed that these tariffs were unfair and aimed toward them because they imported a wider variety of goods compared to the North's imports. South Carolina would eventually disavow one such tariff in what would become known as the Nullification Crisis. Taxes were also levied on many Southern exports, an expense that was not always applied to Northern goods of equal value; an awkward economic structure allowed states and private transportation companies to accomplish this. Consequently, this affected Southern banks because they found themselves paying higher interest rates on loans made with banks in the North. The situation grew worse after several "panics", including one in 1857 that affected more Northern banks than Southern banks. Southern financiers found themselves burdened with high payments just to save Northern banks that had suffered financial losses through poor investments."

My dad always said, it was only the rich that owned slaves, and I know my mom's and dad's family's, were all poor farmers, with no slaves. I look at it like this, if this happened today, and the govt. said, we're going to start taking 70% of your income for taxes, would you just quietly sit and let them? You would be a coward, and a fool.

Either way, we have always been proud of our people of the south, for the main reason, "We weren't going to sit back on our ass, and let ourselves be manhandled by the govt. We showed them, if you fuck with us, you will pay." That is the pride most people of the south have, that I know of...it had nothing to do with wanting to keep slaves, at all.

Then let's go to the kneeling football punks...I don't even watch football, never liked it. I already think the damn ball players are nothing but over paid sissies, to be honest. I think other people, farmer's, EMT's, firefighter's, police, that risk their lives for us, and grow our food for us, deserve the money these guys get, for playing a game. But I served in the military, to defend my country, our basic freedoms, so we would be safe. I know many guys, that were killed during their service in the military...I didn't see a lot, but I heard horrible story's of things that happened, and that men had to do during those times. They gave their LIVES, let that sink in.... and think how many people each life affected, in some way or another... mother's, father's, brother's, sister's etc... So I will say, it INFURIATES me, when these pussy ass, weasels, kneel during the anthem. They can do it another way besides that... I personally will guarantee you, if I saw anyone disrespecting the flag, I fought and served for, there will be major problems in their future.

On another note, but it's kinda linked... I don't understand what the hell, all the hollering is about, about Trump building the wall? Let's put this in perspective, he only wants you to come into the country LEGALLY, that's all... We already know about the murderers, and hard drug dealers sneaking back and forth, murdering, and who knows what else. How many times have you saw in the news, a truck stopped, they find people packed like sardines, who paid good money, to some fuckers who could care less about them. It's so damn hot in the truck, an egg will fry, people haven't eaten in days, some sick etc... or even worse, the ones that get led across the desert to cross the border to be left alone to die? Is this the way you would rather, your Mexican family, or relatives, take a chance on coming to America? I can personally tell you, it's not a pretty sight. I was in Arizona, during 3 years of my time in the Marines. We had manned bombing ranges in the desert, 20 miles from base, for pilots to drop practice smoke bombs on targets. It was a very short distance from the border. MANY times, we found dead people from Mexico, trying to cross the desert, and couldn't make it. Some dead under a bush, with an empty jug, they had, had water in. One man fell head over into a pile of tires, that were stacked...I won't go into the gory details, of what happened, or what he looked like. This one isn't so bad, just to give you an idea... man found dead, they came to get the body, and when they rolled him over, all his flesh stuck to the ground.... is this what you want to happen, to your brother-in-law because he tried to sneak across a border, that had no fence to prevent him from killing himself? The last time I was out there, there was a group of about twenty people, that crossed the desert, and made it. I felt sorry for them, all they could say was agua! agua! We took them to our building, and let them drink all they wanted. There were men, women, and children in the group, sadly, we had to call the Border Patrol, to come and get them... They actually seemed relieved, they were scared, dead tired, no food, water, or money...Actually, my brother in law, is from Mexico, so you won't find any hostility, or racism, from me on the Mexican people. I LOVE Mexicans, and their food, culture and work ethic. I would kick anyone's ass, that messed with my brother in law.

so disrespecting the Country and Flag through armed rebellion and sedition is noble because of tariffs on imports but symbolic, peaceful protest to raise awareness about racial disparities concerning the use of deadly force by law enforcement is one step beyond?

No soldier did more for THIS country.... than the Union Soldier.

bottom line

As I said, it's all in the perspective.... we're talking about completely different times.... we're also talking about taking food from family's versus some punks hurt feelings, big difference....

and therein the paradox resides...

..no soldier did more to preserve the United States of America than those who fought for old glory at her most vulnerable and turbulent...

The civil war battles ended in the middle of the 19th century. The civil war did not end then. I was stationed down south, Texas & Louisiana. Texas was not so obvious, but Louisiana was a whole 'nuther story. The war was still not over down there, no major battles but lots of skirmishes were still going on. It was (I think) worse for the black brethern then, the white folk resented them & blamed them. If I had been stationed anywhere else, I prolly woulda re-enlisted (I had it made in the USAF), but I was going to get out of (the south) as soon as humanly possible, but re-enlistment would mean another year there.
My dad was from South Carolina & as it turned out, was a racist redneck. I never knew any black kids till 12th grade. There just wern't any that lived where I lived, none. Lots of mexicans & japanese tho. My dad singled out the mexicans as his favored target. My uncle, (my moms bro, born in Belgium) chose the japanese. (he was in the marines in like 1918 or so) He hated the japanese 'cause of the atrocities commited during WWII in Pacific.
I myself never cared one way or another about anything, at all, that is. So here I am, staying under the radar, as best I can.

Speaking of sweets....




Cannabis Candy Recipe






As it usually is when making edibles, getting it right is tough. The candy not only has to be potent enough to be considered medicine but taste good as well! The candy is worthless if it doesn’t have both of those qualities. But making the perfect batch of cannabis candy treats is in the following recipe!
Ingredients:

Candy molds
Cooking spray
Metal spoon
2/3 cups white corn syrup
1 tsp flavoring of your choice (adjust if you want but this is really the perfect amount!)
Food coloring (so they look nice, obviously!)
Candy thermometer
1 cup water
2 cups sugar
9.5 grams of dry powdered hash

Directions:
First things first, spray the candy molds with cooking spray so that the mix doesn’t stick when you get to the step that requires it. Put the sugar and corn syrup together in a pot and put it on high heat until the mix begins to boil. Reduce the heat to low medium and keep an eye on the temperature. Once the temp hits 300, remove the heat and add in the hash and food coloring. Stir this mix vigorously. You need to make sure that the hash has been completely mixed in. About a minute should do it because the mix will start to harden soon after that. Add your candy mix in to the molds. You can either make them just candies or you can add in sticks to make them lollipops!
Let the mix harden in the mold and then remove and wrap them. This recipe will give you about 40 candies. You can always add in more hash but be sure that that’s the form of cannabis that you use. Kief could also be used in this recipe if you have enough of it. These candies last a good amount of time, about 2 to 3 hours on an empty stomach and an hour after a meal. No one should be afraid to make cannabis candy , especially when it’s such a benefit to those who are always on the go and enjoy eating their weed rather than smoking it. They’re very discreet but don’t let anyone sneak one behind your back!

Please don't hijack this thread

BudSniffer, Kami and Cornermuse are creating a discussion I wanted to offer the hive mind of Famooka.

The recipe sounds great, but not in PCA.

The flag isn't worth wiping my ass with. We haven't been in a justifiable war since WW2 and yet we have killed an estimated 20 million people. Let that sink in....and think how many people each life affected. They had mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters also. 2 million in Viet Nam alone. On the other side of the world. It's so easy for us Americans to think only about American lives lost and how it affects other Americans. My problem with the football players is that there cause is too narrow and should include our senseless brutality throughout the world. The whole fucking stadium should take a knee.

Since its now quote legal unquote here in Kali, I bought some cookies for my mormon friend who wants to try the stuff before making judgement, got two packs, tried one first so's I could tell him what to expect. What an 'effing' ripoff they were!! I ate one, (two pack), hour later ate the other. 6 hours later got a very mild buzz, definitely not 10 bucks worth.
I've baked brownies before, when weed was relatively cheap, and the key was/is getting the thc part hot enough to become psycho-active. Dont burn 'em but consume with a glass of milk or somthing.
I think 'cause of the new legality, people are jumping on the bandwagon & making product without knowing/understanding the chemistry. These cookies were nice & soft & prolly didnt get hot enough in the oven. So there, , , ,
I'll have to grow a few plants & make my own. How good were mine? The ole lady (I was still married) shouted down from the kitchen, 'you ate a brownie, didnt you?' 'How'd you know?' 'you've been laughing at the news for ½ an hour' They were good.

But that's where you're wrong... I don't consider the flag representing the govt., the govt. is shit, and they should all be fired all the way down to the janitor's secretary. The flag represents the people, and yes, I know they were millions killed in the wars, but we're not talking about people in other countries, we're talking about people in our country, that died for the flag. No, I don't agree with any of the conflicts we've had since WWII, they were all bullshit, protecting interest of the rich/politicians. What about the poor guys that were drafted in Vietnam? They died, and never had a choice in the matter, you going to wipe your ass on them?

Confederate monuments represent those who actively fought against the flag and country, every last one of them were literally traitors to the country...people crying over a simple, peaceful protest to raise awareness about law enforcement's excessive use of deadly force against racial minorities really need to get a grip and man up

The flag represents the country, the people, the government, everything. You can't pick and choose. I don't demean anyone who died while in the line of duty only that it wasn't defending our freedoms since our freedoms were never in peril. I wipe my ass in disgust of the country that sent them to die needlessly.

I think if you've served and don't see that the kneeling players have no right to their mode of raising awareness, you missed the point of "defending freedom".

I have a buddy who think if you don't serve you shouldn't be able to vote. :CoolStoryBro:

I haven't stood for the anthem or said the pledge since I was a child... 4th grade. Nationalism struck me as blasphemy to my faith. One God. One World. One People.

Things I'd rather stand for and honor.

Teachers who don't teach the nationalists' version of history.
Mental Health Worker & Social Workers
Sustainable Organic Farmers
Malcom X & Dr. King
People working to close for profit prisons
Peace workers
Pacifists
My students who work hard to make something of their lives, that started from "the bottom" because of the system.

PS. Fuck the Confederate Flag and it's monuments of hate, that weren't even put up until the niggers started getting uppity with having rights and dignity.

To those worried about history being lost...
I'll post some links to local libraries.

Re: "Tax based succession"- I'll indulge the suggestion...


The Colonials of the soon to be USA were traitors to the Crown when they felt over taxed, and started a war to break away... Then so too were the Confederate States for leaving over taxes, and trying to start it's own country. Just had a different ending.

These days though, the South should feel good about being a part of a country that gives them more benefits per tax dollar paid out than any where else in the country.

It's called Red State Welfare. And the Yankees are paying for it.... (Does that mean reconstruction isn't over?)
