  • @OnePresidentOfPeace He smoked it too, there was an entry in a journal of one of his and he said that he was upset that he didn’t separate the male and female plants sooner and the females had seeds in them. The females are the ones that get you stoned and you do not usually want seeds in them if you’re gonna be smoking it.

  • for those dumasses that don’t get it… regardsless of them been agnostics (not atheist) had something none of you idiots have call

  • @silversobe wrong hemp is a cousin of weed that grows no buds to get high with he meant the hemp plant to be used for the thousands of uses of it not smoking it i use to smoke weed and i know what u said is false in no way was he saying to smoke weed i think u smoked to much weed when u made your statement

  • You know the constitution was modeled after a federation of native American tribes.
    They were even invited to the early congressional meetings to explain their government structure to the founding fathers.
    The Ironic thing is that how was it possible if a Christian nation that the mass genocide of first nation people happened? It is estimated in US alone that 5 million native americans died within a few generations. Yet this is sadly always left out of history.
    Not only was our land stolen through murder and forced relocation, then the land was worked using slaves sent from Africa. Slavery was justified from the old testament which easily goes against Christian teaching of Jesus in Mathew.
    So beyond the few words spoken and written it is the actions that must be looked at for values
    And if those are Christian values then I must not have the same bible they read.
    Just before he was executed by conquesidors he was asked if he wanted to take Jesus so he would go to heaven, he responded ” if heaven is where Christians go then I would rather go to hell” Hatuey

  • @charlessamuel yes you are correct they are far distant cousins many pro marijuana groups try to make like they are closely related

  • @OnAChairSitting I like that comment alot better then your last one. bible is full of bullshit that was passed down and fucked with so much over time, can’t tell if anything in it is true or bullshit. (or if the story to it is real)

  • @oswald266 We’re in a Dark Age apparently. Kids will read history books in 500 years and ask their teacher if we were really this stupid.

  • Yes we should be more informed and too many do not care… Ironically Jefferson never said “When the people fear the government” quote.

  • Ppl who fought for our independence were Christian it was on a movie they prayed to God even had a cross and the pilgrims were Christian it’s in our books

  • Woodrow Wilson was a foolish and beguiled man. However, had Aaron Burr’s shot not been guided as it were, Hamilton would have ruined this country long ago. We still have a chance to reclaim our country. Vote 2010!

  • @silversobe wow,I knew about all the other uses,but biodegradable plastic as well? That alone would destroy the oil industry. Zeitgeist is our only shot at a great world to live in. RBE!!

  • @silversobe the venus project is certainly something to strive for but i fear that at this point in history, the cost of achieving that goal is far more than many are willing to give. i fear i may never see such a solution come to fruition, nor in following generations. the push that would be needed to wake up so many poeple would be catastrophic. i only hope that our financial sytems are purged by stagnation than by devastation or war…

  • Like the video and the line of thinking. Ever consider joingin forces withn someone? I know two of anything are always stronger than one….and I need some help.

  • “That to secure these rights,governments are instituted among men,deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That when any form of government abuses these rights, it is the right of the people to alter, or abolish it. Prudenc indeed has shown that light and transient causes are not the basis for a change in government, but when a long train of usurpations…..”

  • ” I am a most unhappy man. I have unwittingly ruin my country. A great industrial nation is now controlled by it’s system of credit.”
    Then why did you help create the Federal Reserve by signing it into law?

  • Yes. he was assassinated for speaking out against them also on air. look up “the speech that got JFK killed. that will explain the conspiracy to the point that it is not conspiracy but fact.

  • I love this I pray a lot of our good voters see this and do something about the path we are goend down now our four Fathers would have a fit

  • I agree with you Carter Chambers! I would urge anyone to search the truth about our founding fathers. Yes, many deist for sure. Washington had a pastor for 20 yrs that is quoted that he could not confirm his salvation. He was also confronted as to why he would leave church right before communion. He would not partake, ever! After the pastor, Rev. Dr. Wilson confronted Washington that he is setting a poor example, Washington quit coming to church on communion Sunday. Why, because he didn’t worship the same God of the bible. No evidence of a public statement of faith by Washington that he was a believer of Jesus Christ. There is more but I recommend Chris Pinto who has done a three hour movie called the “Hidden Faith of our Founding Fathers.” Excellent work and I highly recommend!

  • @oswald266 I was full of shit there. My bad. They believed there was a creator of the universe, but they were not Christian. They believed the Bible was basically just full of shit. They did not believe in the Christian god. Anyway, who other than a fucktard would believe in the Bible after reading it?

  • If you’re going to pick a comment to reply to, pick one of the more recent fucking ones where I correct myself. They believed in a creator, but did not believe in the Bible or God.

  • @IchBinDieKaiser

    No, it should not ‘Smack anyone in the face’ It should ‘Fire a Battleship shell into hte face’ lol.

    It is almost unbelieveable how many cant see what has happened to our Nation, and only those onlin have the meanes of finding the truth, unless they can see it without internet.


    (I Alwayse Say)

  • That is not actual Woodrow Wilson quote. While he may have regretted creating the Federal Reserve, he never made such a quote. In fact, the available evidence suggests that the quote is an after-the-fact fabrication made by splicing together passages of different Wilson statements that have nothing at all to do with the Federal Reserve.

  • @guerillaweed Yea, and if they were cremated I am sure their ashes have bursted into flame due to the anger they would have if they saw what has become of the Nation they worked so hard to make free, I wonder if Ron Paul can possibly be voted into office, then again it all is a technical issue that many havn’t noticed in the system. Have you ever heard of ‘Future by Design’ or ‘The Venus Project’?

  • Ah, so you’re into exposing the true nature of cannabis along with all of it’s miraculous, ancient, godlike, and redeeming qualities as well as exposing the corrupt world system in which we live, a part of which happens to be the Federal Reserve.

    You and I would get along.

    I can see that people are beginning to wake up, especially through this medium. There is still so much staggering ignorance unfortunately… such is also especially visible through this medium.

  • If I new nothing about the founders,and just walked thru D.C.looking at all of the Idols that fill that city.

    The pentagon,the Washington Monument,George Washington (a 33° Freemason),Lady Libertas, the goddess Isis.
    Nimrod (Baal) in the likeness of the Roman god Mars
    This statue of Washington in the Smithsonian Museum of American History was modeled after descriptions of the statue of Zeus at Olympia.The list goes on
    jesus-is-savior d o t com

  • Correction Rev. Dr. Abercrombie was one of Washington’s pastor that send a letter to Rev. Dr. Wilson regarding Washington setting poor example and not partaking in communion…see below.


  • Ummmmm. No. Most of the fathers were either theists or desists. The celebrated the night before the constitutions signing by getting absolutely wasted and breaking chamber pots. Ben Franklin supposedly attended orgies regularly and had sex with his slaves.

  • guess youre teetotal? Prohibition that worked out well didnt it? Americans what a fickle bunch you are! You put a man on the moon and 40% of you dont believe it. Yet you are happy to believe in a load of fairy tales about an old man in the sky. What a fucked up country you are.

  • There is so much confusing with the founding fathers people say that it was founded this nation by Christians. Yeah here you got Christian that are saying that Masonic Temple in America are worshipping the devil that is not the god of the Bible. so let me ask you a question the first president George Washington he was a Mason and he never denied it when he was swear in. He did not want it to be swear by the regular Bible he was swear in by the Masonic Holy Bible. Even president that followed after him were in the Masonic maturity. so let me get this straight if you’ll Christians consider this a god devil worship so how was America really founded. You don’t have to answer me ask yourself that question then was it really founded on the Christian principles when these people you keep saying that belongs to the Masonic maternity or devil worshippers.

    And let’s remember this we don’t live in the 1700s no more donkey years are over Nations changes and even Thomas Jefferson and one of the amendments he believed in separation of religion and State. I believe the White House should be run by the Constitution of the United States not by any holy books. first of all you got the Christian Catholic and you got the Christian Protestant and they don’t even agree with certain doctrines. Then you got judaism’s, you got Islam, you got Buddhism and you got Hinduism.

    Now I’m not saying that people who serve in public office in government in Congress they’re not allowed to be in religious belief that’s not what I’m saying. what I’m saying is because we have now people in Congress that belongs to different Faith or no faith at all. Every one of them should be swear by the Constitution not by there holy books because everyone has Believe In there holy books and they will want to run it according to there books, that’s the problem here. I’m a Christian myself but there are problems when you try to bring religion. Even Jesus Christ did not try to convert the Roman to his ideology when they rule over Palestine. When you let a nation be run and control by one religion it becomes very dangerous. And if you don’t believe you look at history Judaism, christianity and Islam they all have committed crimes in the name of God in there Holy books

  • ye have been here at least 3+ weeks, and ye havent convinced anyone as of yet. please rethink how solid ye thoughts really might be lol

  • have ye ever watched the crossroads? or watch?v=hkJwwtxGJMs. and tons & tons more all over the internet, it depends on what iot is ye want to find doesnt it? yes it does.

  • @wesjo2002 Forget the left vs right circus. That’s just divide and rule. The real issue is finance crooks who were literally in government and the treasury writing the rule books; indebting the whole nation to cover a massive Ponzi scheme.

  • I know, He is who I am going to vote for, and should he continue to campaign and start now he could make it, for many of who I know will vote for him. With him in office th eUS will hopfully rid the Vederal Reserve once and for all. I hope to write a book about this era we live in, so that future generations will know not to be for another corrupt system. Hopefully we can trasist to a new way of thinking, not a NWO, but a Global Community of a Free Society where all human kind prospers.

  • This is just religious propaganda…they were not overtly christian but deists. Washington lost his faith Madison John Adams Ben Franklin and Jefferson all eventually held religion in contempt but agreed there should be freedom of worship.

  • Could someone tell me where exactly Woodrow Wilson wrote that last quote? I’m trying to use it in a paper I’m writing about the Federal Reserve.

  • “I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than those attending too a small degree of it” Jefferson on “terrorism”. The “Patriot Act” is the most un-patriotic “act” written by OUR government.

  • Listen…there was obviously a spectrum of belief amongst the founding fathers, but the main movers were Deists, rationalists, and Freemasons. Their God was the GATU of Freemasonry. What Christianity they held to was generally of a Liberal sort. Certainly NOT fundamentalist bibliolatry.

  • @Southernjuggalo63

    Most farmers planted hemp for rope-making and commercial use. BTW marijuana was made illegal int he 30s due to the cotton industry andd the fear of a large influx of latinos (which is a stupid reason). It wasn’t made illegal just because it is a drug. The founding fathers may or may not have smoked hemp.

  • It’s about the time. federal reserve has been in power for 100 yrs in 2013. they got something planned. Infowars.com come on people the blood shed of liberty is upon our era sad to say. they did it for us we can return the favor for 1776

  • Timothy Leary made the “question authority” quote, not Franklin. It seems to have first appeared in a Stanford Newspaper in the 1970s attributed to Ben Franklin, but he never said it most likely. If you find a source for Franklin pre-1960, let me know.

  • Shalom,  Christian nation enthusiasts.  Having problems persuading others to live according your religion?  Remember “you don’t sell the steak, you sell the sizzle”.  However, in your case you may want to work on the steak part too.  Your sacred cow is kind of lame.  Feel free to share this message with your  Jihadist soulmates.

  • “Those 10 new slaves that I bought yesterday had better pick my crops faster or they’re going to force me to me to whip them more! America is a great country. I know that in 300 years, even if slavery has ended, my fellow Americans will be quoting me even though I’m a slaveowner!” -(as George Washington could have predicted it)

  • Woodrow Wilson knew what he was doing with the Federal reserve act (crime) he just pretended he did it by accident so he wouldn’t be hated in history… which he should be.

  • @OnAChairSitting Yeah and now they use it now days to help make our laws.. such bullshit really but someday maybe humans will stop being blind and stupid maybe..

  • Several great quotes by founding fathers that show why the nation they built worked so much better then they expected…… And a quote of a trivial comment by Washington..And a out of context comment by Woodrow Wilson the nations most openly and adamantly racist presidents, hailed by (and who hailed) the birth of a nation book/movie glorifying the birth of the KKK?

  • Tis True!
    Give Liberty or Give me Death!
    For I would Rather Die, Fighting!
    Then to Live, as a Slave, on my knees!
    Praise The LORD
    and Pass The Ammunition!
    FREEDOM! It’s worth fighting for!

  • @silversobe the venus project is certainly something to strive for but i fear that at this point in history, the cost of achieving that goal is far more than many are willing to give. i fear i may never see such a solution come to fruition, nor in following generations. the push that would be needed to wake up so many poeple would be catastrophic. i only hope that our financial sytems are purged by stagnation and social awakening than by devastation or war…

  • So you just take all the commas out of your quotes?

    “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”
