Shame on the Colorado General Assembly
for Attacking Cancer Patients

The Colorado General Assembly has undertaken an unprecedented assault on medical marijuana patient rights and is systematically destroying every Constitutional right of patients in Colorado. Last year, they enacted laws that eliminated 80% of patients' caregivers, allocated $1 million to prosecute physicians, and allowed the state's tax collectors to oversee the medical marijuana program, instead of the health department.

The new Colorado Department of Revenue Medical Marijuana Enforcement Division (MMED) is the first branch of law enforcement dedicated to policing patients in the U.S. The "Shame Police" Badge pictured above is modeled from the new MMED badge, which was paid for with $10 million in fees collected from Colorado applicants for medical marijuana retail "centers."

In 2011, the state of Colorado has launched a five-pronged assault to destroy any remaining rights of patients, caregivers and physicians that they missed in 2010.

1) HB11-1043 Patient Right Elimination "Cleanup" Bill: Will eliminate the remainder of patient rights that the General Assembly didn't abolish in 2010.

2) HB 11-1250 (Ban Cannabis Edibles): Will eliminate the ability of patients to ingest cannabis and force them to smoke it.

3) HB 11-1261 (THC/DUID): Will force patients to submit to random blood tests for THC if they are stopped by the police. Sets limit at 5ng/mL, far less than most patients have in their bloodstream at all times.

4) SCR-001 (Constitutional Amendment Super-Majority Vote): Would require 60% of the vote to amend the Colorado Constitution. This would make it virtually impossible to fix Colorado's Medical Marijuana Amendment or to enact any other citizen-sponsored cannabis law reform ballot initiatives.

5) Department of Revenue Rules Eliminating Patient Privacy: Click here for more info.

Yippies Colorado have created the General Assembly "Shame Police" to PUBLICLY SHAME the elected officials responsible for these bills. Since their disrespect is so great, the only thing that may work is for their constituents to publicly shame them. Public humiliation has a long history of being used as a non-violent way of punishing politicians. The SHAME POLICE will be a constant reminder to the them, and everyone they come into contact with, that their actions to attack cancer patients in Colorado are reprehensible.

Why don't you join the SHAME POLICE at the State Capitol to protest against restrictive legislation. Free "Shame Police" badges will be available for our citizen brigade of shame enforcers.

Denver Post: "Yippies" take a swing for nonviolence at DNC
The modern-day pranksters want to "make fun, not war" at the convention, including inflatable and safe "peace bats."

They looked like the Village People, except older, and hopped around like chimps, clubbing one another with oversized inflatable bats for about a minute on Sunday — until the real cops showed up.

A half-dozen "Yippies" and pot-smoking advocates aimed to poke fun at both police and protesters in the run-up to the Democratic National Convention later this month.

Yippies Demonstrate "Pie'ing" and "Peace Bats" at DNC

Tuesday, August 25, 2008

Civic Center Park (north end, near Colfax)

[Denver, CO] - "Make fun, not war!" That's the motto of a group calling themselves Yippies Colorado, who are teaming up with Yippie Pieman Aron Kay from Brooklyn, NY for some raw unbridled buffoonery.

Inspired by the Three Stooges, Yippie Aron Kay began a series of pie'ings in the 1970's that earned him the nickname Pieman. Among the people he pied were anti-gay-rights activist Anita Bryant, William F. Buckley, G. Gordon Liddy, E. Howard Hunt, William Shatner, and Andy Warhol. Kay retired in 1992 after pieing right-wing activist Randall Terry, but he wants his spirit of pie throwing to live on.

"I feel like a grandfather to these young people," says Kay. "I want to show them how comedy is important in politics."

Kay will perform a pie throwing demonstration at an effigy of Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain. Young people are encouraged to attend to learn how to safely continue this great and noble tradition in the post-9/11 police state. Pieman says, "No matter what, we still have to take on the bad clowns and the bad circus being perpetrated by corporate cartel. Are we Obamanable or will we suffer under four years of Elmer Fudd McCain?"

The Yippies will also perform a "peace bat" demonstration. Peace Bats are 48-inch inflatable baseball bats that can be used as a non-violent alternative for police, protesters, delegates and counter-delegates at the Democratic National Convention.

Yippie Abbie Hoffman once said, "One of the worst mistakes any revolution can make is to become boring. It leads to rituals as opposed to games, cults as opposed to communities and the denial of human rights as opposed to freedom."

Participants are encouraged to attend and join in this fun "Boredom Patrol". Members of the Clandestine Insurgent Rebel Clown Army and the Institute of Sociometry have also been invited to attend.

Look! These protesters are not hurting anything. They're having fun!

"Making our point without making a mark!"

 


The Denver PD might want to get some of these for the DNC.

"Make fun, not war!" That's the motto of a group calling themselves Yippies Colorado. The Yippies are touting "peace bats", as a kinder, gentler weapon that could be a non-violent alternative for police, protesters, delegates and counter-delegates at the Democratic National Convention.

Peace Bats are 42" inflatable baseball bats, decorated in patriotic red, white and blue with stars and stripes, and peace signs, of course. They are kids' toys, but could prove very useful at the Democratic National Convention.

Peace bats could be used as a non-violent alternative for police who want to "recreate '68" and beat hippie's heads like they did in Chicago. If the police used peace bats instead of billy clubs, no one would get hurt and the laughter and merriment that would ensue would be sure to cripple any thoughts of real violence on both sides.

Peace bats could also be used as a non-violent alternative to the anarchist and militant protest groups that are threatening to disrupt the DNC. Why smash the window of a Starbucks or Walmart and risk hurting somebody, when you can go at it with a peace bat all day? Create smiles, not tears!

Peace bats are a symbol for how the majority of the DNC protest groups plan to act during the Convention. Most activists want peaceful, nonviolent protests where nobody gets hurt. Can anyone get hurt with a peace bat? Of course not, since it is like getting hit with air! Unless you die of laughter of course.

On the other hand, the Denver Police Department, Secret Service, National Guard and thousands of other local and federal law enforcement officers will be armed with rifles, tasers, tear gas, pepper bullets, rubber bullets, billy clubs, high power microwave weapons, sonic weapons and armed Blackhawk helicopters. Real weapons that cause real damage. They may be non-lethal, but they don't sound like a lot of fun!

If real violence breaks out at the DNC, who will be to blame? Protesters with peace bats or police with automatic rifles? If comedy breaks out at the DNC, only Yippies can be blamed!

"The peace bat allows you to make your point without making a mark," says Private Lee Pat McGroin, national Yippie trendmonger for the Western Region.

"Laughter is the best defense," says Biff Debris, a local Yippie artist.

Yippie Pieman Aron Kay from Brooklyn, NY, who became infamous in the 1970's for throwing pies in the faces of political figures and celebrities, calls the DNC a "charade". Pieman says, "Once again, the rich orgy of affluence tries to give us another snow job. It's the same regurgitated circus that we get every four years, a liberal façade called 'Yippie Presents: America Up for Grabs.' No matter what, we still have to take on the bad clowns and the bad circus being perpetrated by corporate cartel. Are we Obamanable or will we suffer under four years of Elmer Fudd McCain?"

Activists Preparing Against Use of 'Brown Note' at Dem Convention

Activists Preparing Against Use of 'Brown Note' at Dem Convention
by Cristina Corbin
FOX News
Tuesday, June 10, 2008

Political activists planning protest rallies at the upcoming Democratic Convention in Denver have their stomachs in knots over a rumor about a crowd control weapon - known as the "crap cannon" - that might be unleashed against them.

Also called "Brown Note," it is believed to be an infrasound frequency that debilitates a person by making them defecate involuntarily.

Mark Cohen, co-founder of Re-create 68, an alliance of local activists working for the protection of first amendment rights, said he believes this could be deployed at the convention in August to subdue crowds.

"We know this weapon and weapons like it have been used at other large protests before," he said.

Cohen, who described Brown Note as a "sonic weapon used to disrupt people's equilibrium," cited eyewitness accounts of its use during free-trade agreement protests in Miami in 2003.

"I think these weapons were mostly intended for military use and so their use for dealing with innocent protesters seems highly inappropriate," he said. "The idea that they might be field testing them on people who are doing nothing more than exercising their first amendment rights is disturbing."

His group is preparing against a possible attack by Brown Note and other crowd-control measures by dispatching street medics at the convention trained in treating injuries in demonstration situations.

"It's all we can do," Cohen said.

So is the Brown Note a real threat?

Dr. Roger Schwenke - an expert acoustician who appeared on the Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters" in 2004 to test the phenomenon - told FOXNews.com there is no scientific evidence that proves such frequencies cause involuntary defecation.

"When we conducted the low frequency experiment for the Brown Note episode of MythBusters, we tested a variety of low frequencies and no involuntary gastro-intestinal motility was caused," he said.

But Schwenke acknowledged the low-frequency exposure did cause an adverse effect. Several people - including himself - reported "abdominal discomfort," he said, "which was easily alleviated by moving a moderate distance away from the source."

Adding to the Brown Note rumor is a refusal by Denver's Mayor John W. Hickenlooper to release details of what was purchased with $18 million of a $50 million federal grant the city received to pay for convention security, despite a lawsuit filed by ACLU.

Cohen's group is calling on the administration to disclose what measures will be taken.

In a statement released to FOXNews.com, city spokeswoman Sue Cobb said, "commenting on specific security preparations is not helpful to ensuring their effectiveness. I can say, however, that all of our security-related purchases for the Democratic National Convention will comply with federal and City requirements. We are working closely with the U.S. Department of Justice to ensure that the $50 million federal security grant is spent on personnel and equipment in the manner required by the grant."

Denver's police Department wouldn't comment on the tactics that will be used during the convention, but a spokesman said that "we do support and encourage people to express their views safely and in a manner that respects the rights of others along with the laws and ordinances of our city."

But Glenn Spangnuolo, also with Re-create 68, isn't taking any chances. He said he has no doubt that Brown Note exists, and is preparing his group for confrontation. "Whether it causes someone to defecate in their pants or not, I don't know that," said Spagnuolo. "What I do know is that it causes a person to be disoriented and lose their equilibrium resulting in a nauseous feeling in their stomach."

More troubling to Spagnuolo is the "Active Denial System" or "ADS," a ray gun used to send high levels of microwave frequencies that cause a burning sensation the skin.

He described ADS as an "indiscriminate weapon" and said "there's no long-term testing on what happens to the body when exposed to those kinds of microwave frequencies."

Spagnuolo believes that Raytheon, the company that manufactures the weapon, is planning to test a limited-range civilian version on protesters in Denver before approving its use in places like Iraq.

Spagnuolo said he believes tactics like these are excessive. "I think spending millions of dollars on weapon technologies to be used on people in our community is completely wrong," he said.
