It's me, that crazy hippie chick from Alaska, back once again to defend the lives, love, and personal liberties of pot smokers everywhere.

Vernon Neilly and G-Fire

Are you gender biased?
In the early 20th century young girls were given the role model of Olive Oyl. However, the Olive Oyl that we know today is not the Olive that started out in the 1920’s. The cartoon Popeye started out in the 1920’s as a comic strip that featured Olive herself. It was in the late 1920’s that olive’s skinny boyfriend Ham ... continue reading

Where's The Love Frank?
It was just after midnight and it was raining.

We have become a nation of sheep
I was disappointed the day Murkowski was elected and I have been disappointed everyday since. I stood helplessly by and watched a candidate who touted the praises of oil development and no taxes to stabilize the Alaskan economy become governor of the place that I call home. I couldnt believe it. Here was a man who stoo... continue reading
