    EVeryone knows the standard explanation of evolution but the rapid jump from Homo Erectus to Homo Sapiens has no satisfactory answers. A more radical interpretation of these events involves the same animals, dung, and plants but also includes psychedelic drugs. In 1992, ethnobotanist and psychedelics advocate Terence McKenna argued in the book Food of the Gods that what enabled Homo erectus to evolve into Homo sapiens was its encounter with magic mushrooms and psilocybin, the psychedelic compound within them, on that evolutionary journey. He called this the Stoned Ape Hypothesis. McKenna posited that psilocybin caused the primitive brain’s information-processing capabilities...

I have it recorded but do not know how to transfer it to my computer.

    Dear Mr. Chairman: On Thursday June 28, 2012 the Supreme Court of the United States upheld the monstrous legislation known as “Obamacare.” As I am sure you are aware, the Washington State Attorney General and a Republican candidate for Washington State Governor, Rob McKenna, has said that he opposes a repeal of any portion of the Affordable Care Act and is ready to implement it if elected Governor of Washington. This statement by a Republican candidate is both shocking and offensive. I had the honor and privilege of representing my congressional district as delegate to the 2012 WSRP Convention. As...

  • McKenna to announce he's running for governor (Washington State)

    OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) -- Attorney General Rob McKenna is preparing to officially launch a campaign for governor. A Republican familiar with the McKenna's plans said Tuesday that he will formally begin his 2012 campaign during an event Wednesday night. The person spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to pre-empt McKenna's announcement. Washington state hasn't had a Republican governor since John Spellman left office in 1985. McKenna was first elected attorney general in 2004 after serving several years on the King County council. He is president-elect of the National Association of Attorneys General. Democratic Gov. Chris Gregoire said Monday...

    Private businesses have customers that do business with them by choice. The customer indirectly, yet ultimately, pays those wages and benefits to the workers. They have the freedom of choice as to whether they want to give their money to ABC Company or XYZ Company for whatever services or products they offer. If the prices are too high, due to labor costs, they have the freedom to look elsewhere. Governments take money from their "customers" (taxpayers) by force. The only alternative are fines or imprisonment...

    Quietly, Democratic lawmakers have already moved to make it harder for Attorney General Rob McKenna to spend money suing the federal government over health care. The reaction to the Republican lawman joining a 13-state attack on President Obama's health care bill has come swiftly. Not only are Democrats considering a budget proviso blocking the lawsuit, but McKenna already faces new controls on his spending. Office of Financial Management Director Victor Moore sent a letter Tuesday revoking McKenna's blanket exemption to a freeze on state contracts. The exemption, which Moore had granted days earlier, allowed the attorney general's office to pay...

    Until this Summer Andy McKenna was the Chairman of the Illinois GOP. He presided over a party that saw every single state wide office lost to it. He presided over a party that tried as hard as it could to make sure that Illinois' Republican voters would be barred from voting their own leaders into place (even though Democrat voters do elect their leaders). McKenna presided over a GOP that seemed little more than a junior partner to the corruption plagued Democrats. …and now McKena's running for governor. And guess what? House Republican leader Tom Cross is backing McKenna. Yep,...

    Howdy Everybody. I wrote Attorney General McKenna’s office (Washington State) this week and got back a reply. Basically I was voicing my concern of possible voter fraud that I’ve been hearing about on the news, and how it’s affected past elections and this one. Here’s a response from his office: “Mr. Billeaudeau: I am responding on behalf of Attorney General McKenna to your message, which is copied below. You write about the coming general election, and mention in particular concerns about voter registration drives conducted by ACORN. In Washington, a criminal investigation was conducted in connection with the 2006 election,...

    The official police report on Rep. Cynthia McKinney's clash with a Capitol Hill police officer three weeks ago says the DeKalb County congresswoman struck the officer "in his chest with (a) closed fist." The "event report" — obtained Tuesday by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution — describes the altercation as an assault on a police officer. The officer involved in the incident, identified as Paul McKenna, filed the report with his supervisors immediately after the incident occurred at 8:55 a.m. March 29. The report for the first time provides specific details of what happened when McKenna tried to stop McKinney from going...

    McKenna believes anti-U.S. talk hurt Liberals Toronto Globe and Mail Thursday, March 2, 2006 by ALAN FREEMAN WASHINGTON -- On his last day in the job, Canadian Ambassador Frank McKenna took his former Liberal bosses in Ottawa to task yesterday for their "gratuitously offensive" anti-U.S. rhetoric during the recent federal election campaign. Mr. McKenna, who resigned the day after the Jan. 23 election and is being replaced by former Conservative finance minister Michael Wilson, said Canadians want their government to be assertive of Canadian interests without being anti-American. "[Voters] do want [us] to stand up for Canada, but they...
