This is the eye of the needle, Gary, and we must pass through it together.

Makes sense. Knowing which way the smoke is going to be blowing isn't necessarily a political right-left thing.

You can follow my example and vote for me when the other choices suck

I also heard rumors that he's going to incorporate the company, and give it status as a Rastafari-based organization based on the recent hobby lobby ruling, forcing insurers to cover Medical Marijuana. Then his company can get paid "Obamacare prices" for all of their various edibles, infusion oils, etc.

As someone with a sleeping disorder that has no mainstream treatment (but is completely abated by marijuana), I don't really have a problem with this.

/would be better if it was a Pastafari-based organization though

Job creator!

Can I have a job as a tester?
 
2014-07-02 02:24:14 PM  
Why not? That's where the money is, right?

Further perpetuating the stereotype that libertarians pretty much just want to get high.

Have you tried lying in bed with your eyes closed and the lights off?

/ failing that, quarter liter of whiskey and a night of dancing usually does the trick for me...

It's not insomnia. It's sleep paralysis. Except I don't get your normal, run of the mill SP, where you just wake up and can't move and think there's an evil presence in the room. Oh no, I get bad ass SP, the kind where you hallucinate that you've being shot, or in a car accident, earthquake, volcano, air bombing raid. . . And when I say hallucinate, I'm not kidding. I'm talking full five senses, no clue that what you're dealing with isn't real. The only advantage is that since I can't move, I can't really hurt anything. However, coming to with your heart ready to pound out of your chest, sweating profusely, and unable to go back to sleep at 3:30am or take a nap later because you're almost guaranteed to go through it again is bad enough. It's gotten to the point where my PTSD extends to trying to get to sleep, so imagine trying to talk yourself down to be able to blissfully drift out of consciousness while knowing that in a few hours you might be screaming into wakefulness. At the worst, this happens on almost a daily basis.

Can I have my pot now?

/ I never understood the idea of "hugging a pillow" until I got meds for fibromyalgia and the pot for SP. Unfortunately, I have neither at the moment, and just filled out the first appeal for Social Security assistance (I'm not going to delude myself into thinking it will be that easy for me that I won't have to file more)

I told you he would have been a good President.
Since he's only working for a dollar a year and stocks, he might be looking for a higher paying job in 2016.

You already can see the line up of choices given us, and it's not looking good.
