Donald Trump and hemp in 2018
It's been almost a year since I posted. Sorry for the long hiatus.
Presently I'm in the US, where hemp was first banned for so long, but is now legal
according to federal law, giving states the right to grow it. And many states have opted
to make it legal along with medical and recreational cannabis.
Which two are grown in abundance; while industrial hemp is not much talked about.
The left, which appropriates environmental issues, has been missing in action. The right, which
is accused of being a bunch of nasty, polluting haters, has backed hemp.
The left has also been proven to be full of child molesters, spies, sexual harassers, you name it.
Not that the GOP does not have its share. But the mile long list of lefty Hollywood celebs and their allies, including members of the Clinton and Obama family, makes one wonder why they can make any claim to environmental issues. And none are wearing hemp; save Woody Harrelson, whose name has not appeared on any of the sexual harassment claims. OK, a few others as well; but what did they know and when did they know it? Should we belive Katie Couric and her claims that she knew nothing of Matt Lauer's lewd acts? That his office-cum-dungeon was a complete secret?
I'd believe her more if she was wearing hemp; not cotton. Which is a crop the left loves, reference if you will a previous post about the cottonistas and their show in London. Cotton kills. The left wears it. The left started the Vietnam War, supported slavery, sent back the St. Louis to Hitler, etc etc.
But I did not want to start the year just bashing the left. I spent years trying to work with them, and indeed marched against the Vietnam War in my youth, etc etc. But the left in the US and elsehwhere has proven to be not much more than the party of a certain vegetarian, which promised peace and love while calling itself the socialist workers... of Germany.
So who pick up the plow and sow hemp? Could Mr Trump and his adorable deplorables get the job done? We'll see. For now they are at least producing a pro hemp shirt, on hemp cloth of course, so the GOP is the only party I see working with the issue. And where are the Greens? Again, reference previous posts on this site. Mrs Stein is counting her millions somewhere, which were supposed to be spent getting Trump out of office but which I suspect she spent on petroleum stocks.
More on the hemp shirt shortly, so stay tuned, and feel free to post any comments.
