This is a hilarious note, thank you Vector.
The Cato institute is where, on my first out-of-town trip for High Times, I asked Gov. Gary Johnson what he thought about the CIA being involved in drug trafficking.
He gave me a blank look, an "uh, I don't know what you're talking about" then moved on to the next question. Then many libertarian Cato folk approached me afterwards and badgered me about "what's your problem with the CIA trafficking drugs?" as though I was down on drugs, and not the CIA bringing them in so we can get arrested taking them.
Anyway, Happy July 6th.
Mushrooms are a great invention! Thanks God/Power that bees.

Subject: Re: [ibogaine] war on drugs
Lets see. to give a little background I live in California, I'm middle class I think, my grandpa fought in WWII, my dad fought in vietnam. There's a American Flag in front of my house, not since Sep 11, but since I was born. My grandfather is a Republican, my dad is a Democrat but doesn't really care. My grandpa is proud of having served his country, my dad thinks it was a bullshit war that he got drafted into. I don't know anybody near my age who votes or plans to vote or cares. Republicans are repressed conservative weird old people, Democrats are liberal old people who did more drugs and don't want to get jobs. The Libertarians are morally outraged that anybody has the gall to tell them what to do, so step off and fuck you, the Greens wants to smoke a lot of pot and hang out. Hackers are mostly not aware that politics exist, those that are are libertarians. Ravers are mostly not aware that politics exist, those that are are mostly greens. Afghanistan is over there on the other side of the world. Washington is in the US, but it's not the state that has Seattle where Nirvana came from. Political parties have animals, Republicans and Democrats have a donkey and an elephant I forget which is which, the Libertarians have a cobra with "don't tread on me" written on it, I've no idea what the greens have, probably a hamster with a glow in the dark pacifier living in a dayglo cage. If you are confused what the cato institute does and really care, you could click their "about us" button and they talk on about something or another. Hope that helped .:vector:.
