Lunch that Turned the World Upside Down

The world is going upside down folks. I was invited to hear a friend speak at lunch yesterday. When I got there it turned out to be a Pachyderm (GOP) lunch.Since it was for a friend, I stayed to see what might happen...

Well, you could have knocked me over with a feather when one lady got up and said something to the effect of: "Did you know that we have a law that should not be on the books because its the 'New Jim Crow' " - she then passed out a flyer that marijuana should NOT be Illegal! 

Some looked frozen in fear when she handed it to them, others took it. I've met Ann before and put her in the "moderate" Republican category. She told me that they are putting together a website to promote legalization of pot. She feels it was made illegal in the 30's to penalize blacks (which it was).

At the end of my friends talk about escaping from the Communists in Vietnam and floating on a boat for 25 days after its engine failed (he is a Vietnamese sitting on Missouri City council) some asked: "How do we attract people from your culture."  His response was basically: "Be nice."

Moral: When GOP members start talking about legalizing Marijuana, we have reached a sea change in our country...too bad their primary voters aren't that open minded.
