23 Apr Tip Toe Through The Tulips
Several weeks before the late October, 1929 stock market crash, the song most heard on the radio and musical stages of North America was: “Tip Toe Through The Tulips.” The song had a brief revival in 1967 – 1968 via the Garage Rock Band and falsetto vocalist Tiny Tim.
Lo and behold the theme of, “Tip Toe Through The Tulips,” has made yet another comeback courtesy of Oakland born and bred and Presidential aspirant Kamala Harris.
The United States is confronted with many challenges, and, Harris presents a Reform Bill to decriminalize marijuana on a National level; July 23, 2019. This is tantamount to an approval if not an encouragement to, “toke up,” and benumb your brain.
The National Debt of this country soared past 22 trillion dollars, the California’s State debt hovers around one trillion dollars; what the hell, “toke up,” and benumb your brain to the reality that stares us in the face.
When faced with illegal immigration and homelessness; “toke up,” and benumb your brain.
The little North Korea rocket man could have a temper tantrum where millions could perish; “toke up,” and benumb your brain.
That a military confrontation with Iran in the Persian Gulf is inevitable; “toke up,” and benumb your brain.
That the Affordable Health Care Act has degenerated from 12,000 to over 20,000 pages, that all medical program premiums have risen; “toke up.”
That people by the thousands are addicted to opiates, that suicide is at an all time high; “toke up.”
What is next? The legalization of mushroom hallucinates. And watch the news media report the increased tax revenues as it has done with marijuana sales.
In 1963 the music group, “Peter Paul and Mary,” (they were no strangers to the celebrated affects of THC the marijuana intoxicant) recorded the ditty: “Puff the Magic Dragon.” These words are now used to convey over the Internet, SMART and telephone that a THC smoke induced euphoria session is in progress and come and join us, “… in a land called Honalee.”
That is the resolution of Presidential contender Kamala Harris; “toke up,” on a National level and follow me to the land of Honalee. A land of make believe.
Tip Toe Through The Tulips.
