NC Republican Stam says constituents are harassing him by calling and writing?
While its not unexpected that they did this, the interesting part is why they did it...

[link to www.wral.com]


The House Rules Committee has killed a bill that would have legalized medical marijuana, an effort by House leaders to stem a tide of phone calls and emails on the topic.

It is somewhat unusual to give a measure an unfavorable report. Typically, bills that won't pass merely sit in committee unheard and untended.

"We did it to be done with it, so people could move on for the session," said Rep. Paul "Skip" Stam, R-Wake. He said lawmakers we're being "harassed" with phone calls and emails about medical marijuana.


So, don't call or write your representative-not unless you are a lobbyist and you have cash. He might sue you for harassment.

Thanks for letting us all know what you think of us, Skip.

Is it not their job to listen to their local citizens who "put them in office" (supposibly)? 20 minutes or listening? North carolina legislators need a wake up call, or to just drop dead with their baby boomer mentality.

That used to be the theory.



Is Stam the future of the Republican party?

[link to northcarolina.tenthamendmentcenter.com]

From numerous interviews and statements it is obvious that Rep. Paul ‘Skip’ Stam Speaker Pro Tempore thinks that we should obey and submit to whatever the federal government says. He has repeatedly said that the Supremacy Clause makes federal actions unchallengeable and the law of the land.

Is he right? The answer is clearly No! The Supremacy Clause reads: This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; …shall be the supreme Law of the Land. Only laws made in pursuance of the Constitution – that is, in keeping with the powers enumerated to the federal government – stand as legitimate laws. All other acts are usurpation, and by definition null, void and of no force. An illegal act cannot stand supreme. In fact, it is criminal and should be punished like any other crime.

Further, he states that the “Civil War” settled the issue of states standing up to the federal government. This is like saying that a woman beaten by her husband or boyfriend must submit and accept whatever he demands from now until the end of time. Is that what Rep. Stam really wants us to believe? Since Skip Stam is a lawyer, he would have been or should have been taught in law school that you are not legally bound by anything you are forced to do through violence or threats of violence.

Paul.Stam@ncleg.net

I was just writing to let you know how much of a horrible job you're doing representing the state of North Carolina. Is it not your job to listen to concerned citizens and react to their desires? Is it not your job to be a representative of the people. So you would think, one as educated as yourself, would understand when people call and write in concerning medicinal cannabis and its benefits not only for it's patients but for your state's economy you would listen, not hide behind a decision to quell any debate on the subject. Cowardly, ignorant, and selfish is how I (and many others) view your decisions. You do not act in the desire of your citizens, for how could you? You listened for 20 minutes on the subject. Your state is full of elderly and dying baby boomers much like yourself. They come to you looking for help in their time of need, and you turn your back and won't listen. You are only helping to drive big businesses further by forcing your citizens to consume dangerous pharmaceuticals and fuel the black market. You should be ashamed of yourself and retire now. You could have helped save countless cancer and pain suffering North Carolinians the financial burden of buying pharmaceuticals, and put a estimated $40 million into North Carolina's economy. The bills have been in the house for 5 years now, and this year you decided to quell it before too many realized how smart and wise the state was becoming. Thank you ignorant old man, you have lead your state into another dark, pharmaceutical infested, poorly funded year. I hope your salary takes as big of cut as your conscious and karma is, for ruining countless North Carolinian lives (both financially and physically). I hope on day, when your state's inhabitants realize how poor of a job your are doing and remove you from office, you realize how ignorant your recent decisions have been. I pray for your citizens who suffer because of your choices. Concerned American.

The house bills have been on paper since 2008-2009 sessions, but the pharmaceutical companies have the state on lockdown. Gotta love Colorado.

Meanwhile in Ga. 6 Republicans are doing their level best to get rid of free speech so they don't have to 'put up with' those annoying phone calls, or even have to stop and talk to their constituents in the local grocery store:

The full text of this bill has to have something about blow jobs, it has to....first you have to pay to talk to them, then its ....


.B. 142 would classify any person speaking to elected officials as lobbyists and require them to pay a $300 fee for the “privilege.”

That means if you want to complain to your local school board, your city council, or at a public hearing at the Capitol – these 6 politicians are demanding that you either pay up or shut up!

I've run into several CMPD officers who admittedly couldn't care less about busting stoners. Which is good, seeing as we have much larger fish to fry.

I am noticing the "culture" more and more. This morning I was sitting in traffic beside a woman with an infinity's end sticker on her car. I watched her for a minute, trying to figure out why in the hell someone would put an implicating decal on their car for all to see. Sure enough, she sparked up a bowl right beside me...no effort to hide it, couldn't care less.

The QC is quickly becoming a liberal bastion. Increased tolerance is the only benefit I see in this. Happy toking, fellow charlottean.

If Stam is waiting for his email to slack off....

[link to control.mpp.org]


As you might have read or heard, a state representative in North Carolina killed a medical marijuana bill yesterday because he felt he and his colleagues were being “harassed” based on the volume of emails and calls they were receiving in support of the legislation.

This is unacceptable. Our democratic process depends on citizens reaching out to their elected representatives to let them know where their constituents stand on the issues. Not only is this type of civic engagement appropriate, it should be encouraged. If anything, such a high volume of calls and emails in support of the medical marijuana bill should be considered a sign that this is an issue worthy of public debate.

Please send a message to Rep. Paul "Skip" Stam asking him to apologize for equating calls and emails from constituents to being “harassed,” and requesting that he call for a hearing regarding medical marijuana.
