When is Willie going to expand his business to Florida? I know someone who could use it for medicinal purposes.

One Texan wrote on Twitter: “Someone buy my Willie Nelson ticket for Friday, November 16. I am no longer willing to watch that hippie guitarist who supports that damn socialist running for Senate.”
Well, at least he didn't burn it :)

I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

Weed With Willie

"I always heard that his herb was top shelf
Lord I just could not wait to find out for myself.
Well don't knock it till you've tried it.
And I've tried it my friend.
I'll never smoke Weed with willie again!

Now we learned a hard lesson in a small Texas town
He fired up a fat boy and he passed it around
The last words I spoke before they tucked me in
I may discount Bungee jump but,
I'll never smoke weed with Willie again.

[Chorus:]
I'll never smoke weed with Willie again
My party's all over before it begins
You can pour me some Old Whiskey River my friend.
But I'll never smoke weed with Willie again

We hopped on his old bus the Honeysuckel Rose
The party was Huntsville, it was after the show
Alone in the front lounge, just me and him
I took one friendly puff and the grim creeper set in

[Chorus]

Now we're passin' the guitar, we're tellin' good jokes
I can tell one's a comin' 'cause I'm smellin' smoke
No I do not partake I just let it pass by
With a grin on my face and a great contact high

[Chorus]

In the fetal position with drool on my chin
We broke down and smoked weed with Willie again

Not sure why Willie Nelson fans could not figure out he is actually pretty liberal. Same kind of people who thought/think Springsteen's "Born in the USA" is a rousing patriotic anthem.

Ted Cruz is whining that people like Beto O'Rourke because he's more attractive then Ted..Lol!..what a pussy.

https://www.rawstory.com/2018/09/te...ox-news-people-like-beto-orourkes-hair-teeth/

It's true, but not the way Cruz imagines it. It's that Cruz is ugly on intellectual and moral levels in such a way that they make Beto look outstanding.

Hell, the fact that Cruz is saying things like this speaks volumes. He's genuinely concerned about the safety of his seat because he's both facing a focused opponent and mounting opposition to his usual greedy, dishonest crap.

It's just a business deal in hopes of expanding Mr. Nelson's pharmaceutical empire. A you scratch my back Mr. Nelson and if elected, i'll scratch yours.
https://hightimes.com/news/willie-nelson-headline-rally-pro-cannabis-candidate-beto-orourke/

"Nelson’s involvement with weed extends far beyond his own personal use. He also advocates for marijuana on the political scene. And more recently, he has moved into the legal cannabis industry as a businessperson.

His brand, Willie’s Reserve, sells his own signature line of cannabis in a number of weed-legal states. Initially, the brand rolled out in Washington and Colorado. Then, a short time later, his strains started selling in Oregon and Las Vegas. Now, his products are also being sold in California dispensaries.

For his part, Beto O’Rourke seems to share some similarities with Nelson when it comes to cannabis. While O’Rourke may not be quite as public or outspoken as Nelson, he has made his position as a lawmaker explicitly clear."
Why do Republicans hate capitalism and demand we have a government big enough to control what consenting adults do with their own bodies? Is it because they can't profit from a harmless weed the way they have by getting millions of Americans addicted to opiates?

I'm glad that Nelson's corporation is looking to make a shit ton of money on his pharmaceuticals too. I hope he branches out into opiates and other pain relievers.
Why would Willie want to get involved in Republican business? Selling opiates and pandering to law enforcement unions are the 2 biggest reasons why the Republicans continue to be opposed to cannabis legalization, and why Republicans like Nixon and Reagan were such big drug warriors in the first place. It was the Republican win-win: get votes and make billions locking up people for using a harmless drug in order to drive them to using a dangerous and addictive drug.

More Ted Cruz batshit...

Ted Cruz says Beto O'Rourke will ban barbecue in Texas:

"If Texas elects a Democrat, they’re going to ban barbecue across the state of Texas,” Cruz claimed.

“You want to talk about an issue to mobilize the people, and I’m talking everybody,” Cruz continued.

On Sunday, the day after the rally attack, Cruz repeated the charge that his Democratic Party challenger would ban barbecue.

And big hats! And oil! And beef! And Chuck Norris!....

I'm looking forward to voting for Senator Cruz, he represents the great State of Texas and most of it's citizens. My bet is he'll win by about 10 points.

I'll take that bet, if Cruz wins its close by 5 points

If I win you have to like every post you see of mine. forever.

If You win I will like every post I see of yours. forever.
