Membership and Funding The AA

In one of the closest presidential elections in recent history, Yoon Suk-yeol, 61, a former top prosecutor with no prior political experience, beat liberal ruling party candidate Lee Jae-myung, 57.

This morning I began my long post why I believe Pot Growers should fund the AA Militia that would be made up of LGBTQ who have been oppressed along with those who experimented with drugs in the 60s. We were subject to huge fines and long jail sentances for as much as a pot seed found in your carpet. The legalization of marijuana was accomplished due to those who fought for The Cause, and the Rights of the Minorities. I just read an article that says the oppressors of Gay people have won a major victory in the election of Yoon Suk-yeol. Is Putin and most elected Republican cheering this victory?

Gays are not allowed to serve in the Military. They are under attack all over the world, especially in nations that are members of NATO – that should include protection of Gays. The repeal of legalized pot is under attack by the Christian-right, thus, there should be an alliance.

The right to bare arms is in our Constitution. The right to bare arms in defense of our Democracy – should be written there in an Amendment; for this right was denied women and slaves, rendering them second class citizens, and, denying them the chance to heroes and patriots.

On this day, March 8, 2022, I found The Abraham Alexander Brigade. This brigade will come to the aid of people’s and nations who are being invaded by larger nations who want to force their will on conquered peoples, or on people – on the verge of being conquered.

Alexander 11, the Tsar of Russia, came to the aid of the Union Army that eventually freed the slaves of the red states. Alexander emancipated the slavs of Russia. He is the grandfather of Nicholas 11 who Putin emulates in his ambition to refound Russian nobility. The children of Harry and Meghan Windsor carry the DNA of the Great Liberator.

How $1 billion in pot taxes gets spent in Washington state | Crosscut

his year marks a milestone for the state’s legal pot industry. For the first time since voters approved recreational pot use nine years ago, the state of Washington is expected to collect more than $1 billion in marijuana sales taxes and fees over the course of its next two-year budget cycle.

That’s nearly three times what the state collected from 2015 to 2017, the first budget period in which legal pot stores were open for business the entire time.

Yoon Suk-yeol, who has been likened to Donald Trump, has been elected South Korea’s new president. 

  • Among his controversial pledges is a promise to abolish the Ministry of Gender Equality and Family.
  • Twitter users started discussing how to leave the country, with “Immigration to Canada” trending.

“Immigration to Canada” was trending on South Korean Twitter on Thursday as a conservative candidate likened to Donald Trump was elected the country’s new president.

In one of the closest presidential elections in recent history, Yoon Suk-yeol, 61, a former top prosecutor with no prior political experience, beat liberal ruling party candidate Lee Jae-myung, 57.

Yoon’s win led some South Koreans to consider their immigration options — at least according to Twitter, where the term “immigration to Canada” was trending on Thursday. Twitter analytics site GetDayTrends reported close to 16,000 tweets about the topic in the early hours of the day.  

The tweets were reminiscent of the 2016 US presidential elections when Canada’s immigration website crashed as Trump swept key states.

  • Anthony Capone has been funneling his own money to help those wanting to fight in Ukraine.
  • A trip to Europe a decade ago helped Capone develop a connection to Ukraine, he told Insider.
  • In just days, 21 volunteers have reportedly been deployed, with another 1005 ready to be deployed.

Anthony Capone, the president of DocGo, a mobile medical services and transportation company, has been funneling his own money to help foreigners who want to go to the frontlines and defend Ukraine but don’t have the means.

A trip to Europe a decade ago changed Capone’s life. He said that he had been beaten by soldiers in Minsk when trying to get to Russia through Belarus and met a Polish-Ukrainian engineer who befriended him. That experience helped him develop a connection to Ukraine and motivated him to start sponsoring fighters, he told Insider.

“I now have many friends in Ukraine and saw their fear when the Russian invasion began,” said Capone. “Friends and family trapped, communities decimated.”

“So I made a post on LinkedIn to help people purchase flights over,” said the executive, whose employer DocGo is not affiliated with the project. “Originally, I expected to sponsor 10-15 people. It then went viral and we’ve now had over 1,200 inquiries looking for sponsorship.” 

The volunteers are part of the growing chorus of international solidarity efforts with Ukraine against Russia’s invasion. From the early days of the conflict, Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy had urged the international community to help, especially as the country’s armed forces are greatly outnumbered by Russian firepower and troops.

Ukraine assembled an International Legion of foreign fighters to aid the country in the conflict. It also formed a volunteer “IT army”  to launch attacks against Russia in cyberspace, calling on anyone to join and help shut down Russian sites.

Capone formed the Ukrainian Democracy LLC a day after Zelenskyy called on foreign fighters to fight alongside Ukraine’s army, an organization to help filter applicants and find them sponsors. 

The funding was originally just from Capone, he told Insider, but now other contributors are sponsoring flights for the volunteers.

According to the website Capone created for his program, 21 volunteers have been deployed, with another 1,005 ready to be deployed. $45,000 has also been raised in sponsorship.

About 60% of the volunteers are from the US, 30% are European, and a small percentage are from countries including Zambia and Pakistan, according to a chart Capone posted on LinkedIn. He is only funding ex-soldiers or paramedics, he told Reuters. 

People willing to fight must first fill out an application on Capone’s site, have their credentials verified, and apply and be accepted to Ukraine’s official foreign legion, according to his LinkedIn post.

“[Capone] is covering flights as well as medical supplies and body armor on the ground,” Alexander Szokoly, a US military veteran and reportedly one of Capone’s volunteers, told The Verge.

§654. Policy concerning homosexuality in the armed forces

(a) Findings.—Congress makes the following findings:

(1) Section 8 of article I of the Constitution of the United States commits exclusively to the Congress the powers to raise and support armies, provide and maintain a Navy, and make rules for the government and regulation of the land and naval forces.

(2) There is no constitutional right to serve in the armed forces.

(3) Pursuant to the powers conferred by section 8 of article I of the Constitution of the United States, it lies within the discretion of the Congress to establish qualifications for and conditions of service in the armed forces.

(4) The primary purpose of the armed forces is to prepare for and to prevail in combat should the need arise.

(5) The conduct of military operations requires members of the armed forces to make extraordinary sacrifices, including the ultimate sacrifice, in order to provide for the common defense.

(6) Success in combat requires military units that are characterized by high morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion.

(7) One of the most critical elements in combat capability is unit cohesion, that is, the bonds of trust among individual service members that make the combat effectiveness of a military unit greater than the sum of the combat effectiveness of the individual unit members.

(8) Military life is fundamentally different from civilian life in that—

(A) the extraordinary responsibilities of the armed forces, the unique conditions of military service, and the critical role of unit cohesion, require that the military community, while subject to civilian control, exist as a specialized society; and

(B) the military society is characterized by its own laws, rules, customs, and traditions, including numerous restrictions on personal behavior, that would not be acceptable in civilian society.

(9) The standards of conduct for members of the armed forces regulate a member’s life for 24 hours each day beginning at the moment the member enters military status and not ending until that person is discharged or otherwise separated from the armed forces.

(10) Those standards of conduct, including the Uniform Code of Military Justice, apply to a member of the armed forces at all times that the member has a military status, whether the member is on base or off base, and whether the member is on duty or off duty.

(11) The pervasive application of the standards of conduct is necessary because members of the armed forces must be ready at all times for worldwide deployment to a combat environment.

(12) The worldwide deployment of United States military forces, the international responsibilities of the United States, and the potential for involvement of the armed forces in actual combat routinely make it necessary for members of the armed forces involuntarily to accept living conditions and working conditions that are often spartan, primitive, and characterized by forced intimacy with little or no privacy.

(13) The prohibition against homosexual conduct is a longstanding element of military law that continues to be necessary in the unique circumstances of military service.

(14) The armed forces must maintain personnel policies that exclude persons whose presence in the armed forces would create an unacceptable risk to the armed forces’ high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.

(15) The presence in the armed forces of persons who demonstrate a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts would create an unacceptable risk to the high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.

(b) Policy.—A member of the armed forces shall be separated from the armed forces under regulations prescribed by the Secretary of Defense if one or more of the following findings is made and approved in accordance with procedures set forth in such regulations:

(1) That the member has engaged in, attempted to engage in, or solicited another to engage in a homosexual act or acts unless there are further findings, made and approved in accordance with procedures set forth in such regulations, that the member has demonstrated that—

(A) such conduct is a departure from the member’s usual and customary behavior;

(B) such conduct, under all the circumstances, is unlikely to recur;

(C) such conduct was not accomplished by use of force, coercion, or intimidation;

(D) under the particular circumstances of the case, the member’s continued presence in the armed forces is consistent with the interests of the armed forces in proper discipline, good order, and morale; and

(E) the member does not have a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts.

(2) That the member has stated that he or she is a homosexual or bisexual, or words to that effect, unless there is a further finding, made and approved in accordance with procedures set forth in the regulations, that the member has demonstrated that he or she is not a person who engages in, attempts to engage in, has a propensity to engage in, or intends to engage in homosexual acts.

(3) That the member has married or attempted to marry a person known to be of the same biological sex.
