And Who Is Benefiting When It's Illegal??

Woman Cured Terminal Brain Tumor With Cannabis Oil After Chemo Failed
From: Natural
By Heather Callaghan, Editor

Scottish woman, Lynn Cameron, was told at age 48 that she had just 6 to 18 months to live. After a seizure landed her in the hospital in 2013, doctors discovered a brain tumor. She had surgery to remove the deadly brain tumor but doctors told her they couldn’t get it all and that she was now in Stage 4, terminal condition. Radiation and chemotherapy did not shrink her tumor so her condition was still labeled incurable.

She began researching alternative therapies and first began an alkalizing diet and removed all processed sugar from her diet. When the radiation and chemo didn’t change the tumor, she decided to really “break the mold.” She tried cannabis oil after a friend suggested it. CBD oil is allowed to be prescribed in the UK, after its regulatory body, the MHRA found it to have a “restoring, correcting or modifying” effect when given to humans.

After trying cannabis oil – leaving it under the tongue for better absorption – Lynn began getting MRI check-up scans. She was skeptical that it would work, but each successive scan showed the tumor shrinking. The sixth scan revealed that she was cancer free! She told the Daily Record, “I found it hard to believe that it would cure brain cancer so advanced.”

Since she had stopped radiation and chemo, she thought it must be the cannabis oil. Plus, she had been told that radiation and chemo wouldn’t help. However, doctors dismissed it when she finally told them about her cannabis oil. She concluded that they were never taught about cannabis oil’s effects on cancer cells.

The doctors interviewed by Daily Mail were sure to emphasize that there wasn’t ample evidence of cannabis cure from clinical trials. A recent breakthrough study at St. George’s University of London, however, found that cannabidiol and THC killed leukemia cells when they were used alone. Even more so when used chemo – their potency was significantly improved.

Lynn has taken the energy of her healing into a new campaign group, Medical Cannabis Reform Scotland, that is pushing “for the reform of the current prohibitive laws around the use of cannabis for medication.” It’s been nearly four years now – Lynn is healthy and is still cancer-free.
Politics / The Problems of Today's Black Americans
« Last post by redcliffsw on Today at 06:01:37 am »

The most damage done to black Americans is inflicted by those politicians, civil rights leaders and academics who assert that every problem confronting blacks is a result of a legacy of slavery and discrimination. That’s a vision that guarantees perpetuity for the problems.

George E. Speer, 73, passed away on September 14, 2017 at Wilson Medical Center in Neodesha, Kansas following a multi-year battle with Leukemia.  He was a lifelong resident of Kansas.  Born in Eureka, Kansas and raised in Fall River, Kansas, he was the son of Willard and Agnes (Walta) Speer.

After graduating from Fall River High School in 1962, he worked on his family farm until 1970 when he enlisted in the United States Army.  He met his wife, Greta of Wichita, Kansas during his service.  He was honorably discharged in 1971.  During and after serving with the U.S. Army, he worked for Frisco Railroad.  He continued working faithfully for the railroad until he retired in 2006.  He loved his work and enjoyed watching the trains pass by until the day he passed away.  He loved sharing his passion with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  He will forever be near his beloved trains as his burial plot is beneath a sprawling oak tree next to the railroad tracks. 

George could do it all, from construction to farming.  He spent much of his life fulfilling the many visions that his wife dreamt up.  He and Greta devoted their life to traveling the country in their motor home.  George was the "shirt off his back" kind of guy and was adored by all his family and friends.  A huge void has been left by his death, and he will be greatly missed.

George leaves behind his wife of 40 years, Greta (Crandell) Speer; his sister, Jeanie Speer; his son, Neal St. Cricq and wife, Samantha; his daughters, Clelieshia Martin and husband, Robert and Shari (Speer) Fox and husband, Charles; his grandchildren, Recaya, Mica, Corban, Erin, Jessica, Payton, Charlie, and Corey; his great-grandchildren, Taylor, Austin, Chase, Carrie, Zander, and Beckett; and one great-great-grandchild, Aniston.  Preceding him in death are his parents, Willard and Agnes; his brother, Johnny Speer; and his best friend, Donnie Rex Shinkle.

A graveside memorial service will be held on October 16, 2017 at 1:00 p.m. at the Neodesha Cemetery in Neodesha, Kansas.  George wished to be laid to rest with his father, Willard; therefore, the service will honor both men and their lifelong bond.  Online condolences may be left for the family at  Loran Fawcett Chapel in Neodesha, Kansas is in charge of arrangements.

Politics / Alt Right vs Cultural Marxism . . .
« Last post by redcliffsw on Yesterday at 06:33:42 am »
Both the left and the right claim to be the torchbearers of the American experiment. But neither side cares about what the Constitution says, Paul said. Furthermore, both sides banded together to support the Bush doctrine, a willingness to countenance foreign interventionism that persists across the modern political spectrum. Leftists and conservatives take advantage of superficial differences to divide people – the left via identity politics and the right via their racist views.

“Both sides claim patriotic loyalty and ownership of the American tradition. Neither group cares about what the Constitution says both sides support America’s world Empire its militarism the military industrial complex and horribly dangerous Bush doctrine of pre-emptive war. Neither side condemns our aggression or foreign interventionism.

Obituaries / FREEMAN, Mildred Jean (Potter) - b. August 21, 1927 - d. September 16, 2017
« Last post by patyrn on September 18, 2017, 08:56:08 pm »
Mildred Jean Freeman, 90, of Sedan, Kansas, died September 16, 2017 in Augusta, Kansas.  She was born August 21, 1927 in Pawhuska, Oklahoma to Frank Leon and Lettie Pearl (Johnson) Potter.

As a young children, she lived on a farm in Oklahoma and attended school in Boulanger, Oklahoma.  Then they moved to Chautauqua, Kansas where she attended school.  On March 23, 1946, she was united in marriage to Robert E. "Bob" Freeman at her parents' home in Chautauqua.  Bob and Mildred were married for 55 years before he passed in 2001 following a lengthy illness.  Bob and Mildred lived in rural Chautauqua where she worked in the school lunchroom.  Later she worked at the Sedan Floral and Ackarman Hardware and Bob worked for Sinclair Oil.  They raised four children, Mark, Roger, Cindy, and Cheryl.

In 1957, Bob and Mildred bought a ski boat, and many weekend days were spent with their friends and children's friends skiing on Hulah Lake.  In 1970, they moved to Sedan, Kansas and took up a different hobby, golfing.  Together they took numerous trips to golf courses in different parts of the United States with their friends.

In 1971, they started Freeman Oil Company which they owned until 1997.  It was during this exciting time of their lives that they were able to enjoy going to Royal baseball games and took several bus tours to other cities for the KC Royals baseball games.  In 1984, Bob became a member of the B-29/B-24 Squadron of the Confederate Air Force (CAF).  Mildred joined the Confederate Air Force herself when Bob took on the job of tour director in 1989.  She must have thought for sure that he needed her excellent organizational skills to help keep things running smoothly, because in total, Bob and Mildred were tour directors six years.  From April to October, they traveled to airports for static displays and air shows.  During the winter months, they scheduled air shows and helped find the funds needed to obtain fuel for FIFI.

Mildred is survived by three of her children, Mark Freeman and wife, Penelope of Maize, Kansas, Roger Freeman, and wife, Ruth of Sedan, Kansas, and Cindy Sharp and husband, Robert of Severy, Kansas; her brothers, Johnny Lee Potter of Houston, Texas and Larry Allan Potter and wife, Mary Lou of Cushing, Oklahoma; one sister-in-law, Elouise Potter of Kansas City; 10 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren; and 4 great-great-grandchildren; and numerous step grandchildren and step great-grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by one daughter, Cheryl Bolack; her husband, Robert E. "Bob" Freeman; her parents; two brothers; and  two sisters.

Douglas, Sedan, Kansas 67361 which is in charge of arrangements.

“ A man with a gun walks in to a bar...

He unholsters the weapon and waves it in the air, shouting, "I have a 45 caliber Colt 1911 with 7 rounds in the magazine and one in the chamber, and I want to know who's been sleeping with my wife!"

A voice from the back shouts, "you're gonna need more ammo!" ”

I'm still around, but have been abandoned I guess. We had the worst garden ever, with too much rain and not enough sun. Toms were just OK, but peppers, beans and cukes were awful. Very poor pollination. Like most, I've been following family in Texas and friends in Florida.One is a nurse, lives and works in Key West. Lots of damage. She rode it out at the hospital where she works.  Happy birthday to anyone I missed .Computer has been acting up badly and just won't connect part of the time....grrr! Hope is well with you all.
