Harmony my eye...
I went to this thing here in Santa Rosa called the Harmony Festival today...it was okay at first...but then...in between musicians...people were up on stage bitching about the president and the war and shit like that...how is that in any way harmonious? I mean, I'm not a fan...but I wanted harmony...not some whinny asshat talking shit about Haliburton and Bush...STFU! Luckily there were stages all over the place...but I'm tired now!
There was a funny thing that happened when I got there though. I was at the window in line waiting when I heard this lady say to the person behind the glass that she wanted her money back. She said, I'm a christian woman and they're promoting drug use in there...we walked in there and people are openly smoking marijuana and they're selling pipes in there! I have my daughter with me for goodness sake! Her daughter looked to be in her twenties! They told her she had to go somewhere else...she was pissed!
There were stands there promoting medical marijuana...I'm told they have places where you can buy it if you have a note from a doctor! Not quite Amsterdam, but getting there. One sign I saw showed a picture of Al Capone and had the caption, "Remember Prohibition?" It didn't work then and it's not working now. You know, it's illegal to grow hemp in this country? But tobacco is cool...'Cause they can tax the hell out of it all while subsidizing the hell out of it!
Like I said, I'm tired...have a nice day!
