I’ll be attempting to up my YouTube video production in the near future on a variety of topics. I’ll need to lose my “Raging Moped” intro and insert something less moped-centric now that my Euro moped adventure is over. Get it while it’s still hot! It’ll slip back into my regular YouTube video list as soon as I do a new one to replace it.
One new topic I’ll be working up videos for is electronic smoking (vaping). These will document my move away from cigarettes shortly upon my arrival back to US soil. There are a lot of smokers out there who need the information I’ve acquired to make a successful transition to a safer nicotine delivery system. I’ll also be discussing my future tiny home plans as well as my “Pikes Peak or Bust” relocation adventure.
Once I start talking there’s no telling what else I might say.

Obama is doing such a fine job that it triggered Rudy Gulliani into orchestrating a self destructive ego implosion.
Muslim miracle as huge fire fails to collapse one of their tallest skyscrapers. Is it a sign from Allah or just good engineering?
That lady who went looking to gun down that neighbor kid for pissing her off ended up getting gunned down herself. Awkward.
Some Nascar dude beat on his wife but there’s no elevator footage so he’ll probably be back to spinning around in circles in no time.
Apple is hiring up people and actually paying them what they’re worth which is causing their competitors considerable consternation. Beneficial free market concepts are rarely “trickled down” far enough for the workforce to partake of. Their former employers are gearing up to spend a fortune enforcing non-compete clauses costing millions that could have otherwise been applied to the workers before they bolted. Walmart was so spooked they cranked their pay knob all the way up to ten!
We should outlaw non-compete clauses. We’re a competitive society, not some hippie-lettuce toking, tambourine-circle banging commune-ists (exceptions: Colorado, Washington, Alaska and yours truly).
Benton Mackenzie, 48, was convicted in Iowa district court jury of marijuana manufacturing and conspiracy, along with his wife, Loretta, 43, the Quad-City Times’ Brian Wellner first reported. Their son Cody, 22, was found guilty of misdemeanor possession of marijuana and paraphernalia. Benton Mackenzie, who had been barred by Judge Henry Latham from a defense that explains he grew cannabis to relieve his aggressive and rare cancer of the blood vessels, faces a minimum of three years in prison when he is sentenced later. His family said they intend to appeal the verdicts. Mackenzie said prison may kill him as his health worsens.
Benton Mackenzie is dead.
He should forever be remembered for the way he chose to live, pushing against Iowa’s ancient marijuana laws and a local prosecutor’s unyielding pursuit of a conviction, certainly not justice. Mackenzie chose to use his final days to force Iowans – and all Americans – to stare down hypocrisy and discover how Iowa and Scott County squandered taxpayer money to assure he left this world convicted and impoverished.

Iowa prosecutors hounded and convicted a suffering cancer patient right to the end of his life for the diabolical ‘crime’ of trying to treat his painful tumors with home grown marijuana.
About those tumors:
What kind of barbarians have the people in Iowa become since I left there in 1976?
Why would any rational person go out of their way to commit an act of inhumanity this great against a sick and dying man? When I visited Iowa late last year, I noted that there were so many meth heads roaming the streets it looked like a casting call for Breaking Bad and yet the police and prosecutors are wasting time and tax dollars chasing after terminally ill pot smokers. Not all the pigs in Iowa are in hog containment facilities. Some of them are running roughshod through the halls of their government offices.
