By Devvy Kidd It seems all we hear is more begging for Congress to create jobs. There is no authority for Congress to create jobs other than those critically essential to support the military, the courts, congressional overhead and in areas specifically enumerated under Art. 1, Sec. 8 in a supporting role. As we can all see over the decades, pork spending creates nothing but more debt. Stealing from all of us, not to create jobs, but give the illusion the voter sanctioned criminal syndicate out in Washington, DC, is "doing something." [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The Outlaw Congress, one after another for decades, have done nothing but kill MILLIONS of jobs through destructive, unconstitutional trade treaties and agencies handing down more and more draconian regulations thereby choking private industry to death. That means your representatives and mine are part of the problem.[/FONT] [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]The solutions to many of our economic problems have been ignored for years by these crooks in Congress, and yes, I even mean the "conservatives" like Speaker John Boehner, Eric Cantor and others. With a split body, the Republicans can only do so much as far as legislation, but since long time incumbents have ignored the real solutions for decades, it has to be the states of the Union fighting back.[/FONT] [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Want to create jobs, lower our dependence on foreign oil and clean up the environment? How about hemp? I'm not talking about growing hemp to smoke (marijuana). I am against legalizing "pot"; a position that gets me in trouble with libertarians who believe all drugs should be legal. The exception is it should be available for cancer patients who say it relieves the unbearable pain; they should not be denied relief.[/FONT] [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Do you know that:[/FONT] CONTINUE . . . Introduction Did you know, it is estimated that hemp has approximately 25,000 uses? From food, paint and fuel to clothing and construction materials, hemp is used. There are even hemp fibres in your Red Rose® and Lipton® tea bags. And several cars made today contain hemp. The oldest relic of human industry is a piece of hemp fabric (canvas) found in ancient Mesopotamia dating back to approximately 8000 B.C. The oldest surviving piece of paper was made over 2000 years ago in China and was also made from hemp fibre. In 2500 B.C. the pharaohs used hemp in the construction of the great pyramids. Hemp was so important in England in the 16th century that King Henry VIII passed a law in 1553 which fined farmers who failed to grow at least one quarter acre of hemp for every 60 acres of arable land they owned. There was even a time in history for over 200 years when you could pay your taxes in America with hemp. In 1850 there were more than 8,300 hemp farms in the United States. Every 3.6 seconds someone in the world dies of hunger. Hemp seeds are the most nutritious and economical solution to end world hunger. With an 80 percent concentration of "good fats" our bodies need for good health maintenance and protein with all eight amino acids plus optimum dietary fibre, hemp truly is a "perfect balance" food source. The first diesel engine was designed to run on vegetable oils, one of which was hemp oil. In the 1930s Henry Ford produced an automobile composed of 70 percent hemp plastic which also ran on hemp based fuel and oil. In 2001 the "Hempcar" circled the North American continent powered by hemp oil. CONTINUE . . .
