Last Call for Amsterdam
    #390868 - 09/11/01 01:27 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

Beginning Jan 1, 2002, most of Western Europe will use the euro as their currency. The euro is meant to compete against the dollar, and the dollar is based on prison slave labour. That means that the euro- bloc must soon become a prison state like the US in order for the euro to compete. Up until now Europe's drug policy has been the opposite of ours; but that will soon change. A war on drugs is the most efficient way to build a prison state.

Needless to say this means the end of coffeshops in Amsterdam. Fortunately, however, Denmark, UK, and Czechoslovakia were smart enough to refuse the euro. Prague has actually been competing against Amsterdam for some time now; and as one poster below noted, the UK is experimenting with Amsterdam-like coffeeshops. And there is always Christiane(sp) in Denmark.

So while it appears that there will still be legal pot somewhere in Europe (at least in the short term), the loss of Amsterdam is tragic nonetheless. Even more tragic is how Europe has blindly followed Amerikkka into slavery.

What the fuck are you talking about?

The euro is meant to compete against the dollar, and the dollar is based on prison slave labour.
Currencies rise an fall in value to refplect the ecomonic stability of a country. Currencies do not 'compete'

That means that the euro- bloc must soon become a prison state like the US in order for the euro to compete.
WTF? You're mental.

Up until now Europe's drug policy has been the opposite of ours; but that will soon change.
Urm. No.. Up until now Europes drug policy has been very similar to yours, but this is now starting to change.

Needless to say this means the end of coffeshops in Amsterdam.
How did you come up with this? Are you tripping?

Prague has actually been competing against Amsterdam for some time now; and as one poster below noted, the UK is experimenting with Amsterdam-like coffeeshops. And there is always Christiane(sp) in Denmark.
So you're saying that more countries decriminalising or legalising cannabis is going to lead to it becoming illegal in Amsterdam?

Even more tragic is how Europe has blindly followed Amerikkka into slavery.
???

Thanks for the laugh...

Take care

It's my understanding that for a country to enter the European Union they must adopt the EU charter. That entails giving up their national soverignty and becoming subjagated to the European Supreme Court, banning the death penalty, adopting EU drug control laws, and much much more. A couple or 4 years ago I was reading about how the Netherlands was refusing to join the EU unless they could maintain their own drug laws and it was looking like the EU would make a charter exception for them. If they have I don't know but I know it was discussed extensivly for several years and it wouldn't surprise me if they made an exception for the Netherlands.

All that stuff about Amerikkka being a police state, well I'm not even going to touch that and I'm not interested in debating about it.

Currencys sure do compete. I remember when the Euro dollar was launched it was valued at more that the US dollar and central bankers around the world were saying it would rival the US dollar. The Euro is now trading at about 0.92 of the US dollar and hasen't yet rivaled the US dollar. Most economists think the US dollar is over valued but the dollar is still strong. I doubt it will stay as strong as it is for ever. Currencies do compete. They compete on the world market. A lot of countries have a reserve of American dollars, the EU would like them to hold a reserve of EURO's and that's an example of currency competition in it pure form.

Take care, RG

It`s just called a Euro not a "euro dollar", dollars are for americans.

And no. the EU is not anything like the US federal government.
Nations within the EU are still seperate countries and have
their own laws. None of the countries had to give up any
death penalty, they had already abandoned it.

Death penalties is something that belong in the middle-ages.

The last country in the EU to abolish the death penalty was
the UK wich abolished it in 1998. How long`it was since the last
execution in western Europe I do not know. Atleast 20 years if not
even more. Most countries stopped killing right after WW2.

When will the US catch up?

Regardless of whether or not the EU member nations abandoned capitol punishment prior to entry, the EU charter doesn't permit it.

It's interisting you say when will the US catch up. It infers that we're behind. A wise old college football coach told me a few years ago, 'To have progress there must be change, but all change is not progress.' That's true in this case and so many other situations where the liberals say we're 'behind' europe. It's not a football game you're trying to win, we're not behind.

Take care, RG
