The inauguration of John F. Kennedy as the 35th President of the United States was held on Friday, January 20, 1961 at the eastern portico of the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.. The inauguration marked the commencement of John F. Kennedy's only term as President and of Lyndon B. Johnson's only term as Vice President. Kennedy was assassinated 2 years, 306 days into this term, and Johnson succeeded to the presidency.

It was also in his inaugural address that John F. Kennedy spoke his famous words, "ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."

But 'what' to do for 'your' country?

To 'give' or to 'take'?


In the 1960's many might not have been 'well off' enough to ask, 'What shall I do for 'my' country''. Many might have known what 'to do'. Today, since many are alot 'better off' than then, many can ask, 'What shall I do'? 'What shall I do with my 'spare' time'?

'Why no pants, JFK, Jr'?

This picture is definitely 'prophetic' in some way.

A young lady playing with an 'iPad' during an important event and a young male dressed as his sister. For then? Probably not. For now? We are seeing it come to the forefront.


But I'm sure 'THEY' care(d), right?

And so to live and work and have a living in a Society with so many individuals with so many personal ideas of what the U.S Constitution represents or does not, how does a person live and work and have/make a living without being swallowed up in the 'sea' of 'wrong(s)'? Stay and stick with your own kind? Okay. Then how does this apply to work and to nearby work life?


Take a weed break at work. It's allowed!

At most offices in America, smoking a joint during your lunch break or eating cannabis-laced brownies at your desk would land you in HR.
But in some states, not only won't you be punished -- you might be rewarded.
Kyle Sherman and Chase Wiseman cofounded Flowhub, which provides software for the cannabis industry, in 2015. The Denver-based startup has been a weed-friendly workplace from day one.
"Our philosophy at Flowhub is to get s*** done," said Sherman. "If it helps our employees get work done, then we don't care if they consume at work."

Sherman and Chase both consume marijuana at work, either in weekly brainstorming meetings or toward the end of the day.
"It definitely surfaces new ideas and a fresh take on things," said Sherman.
While recreational marijuana is legal in Colorado, smoking of any kind isn't allowed in the building. So Flowhub's 18 employees, most of them millennials, are free to bring in cannabis-infused edibles, sodas and juices.
So far, there haven't been any negative outcomes.
"Our clients are some of the biggest firms in the cannabis industry," said Sherman. "We have to be on point with our work. We've never had a problem yet."

Both startups allow weed at work.

Although this might be a very small population, does these sorts of things have a 'ripple' effect into larger main stream society and living?
That even CNN's Business/Money Section wrote an article about it?


5. Denver and Boulder, Colorado
Percentage of marijuana users: 14.8%

The SAMHSA report groups a few large cities together in its report, and the Colorado cities of Denver and Boulder are counted together for a total rate of cannabis use at 14.8%. The large cities are home to a number of universities, but also are some of the most concentrated areas for medical and recreational dispensaries in the state.

Previously, tourists in Colorado were restricted to purchasing 7 grams or less, while Colorado residents could purchase up to 28 grams. This law changed in June 2016, and now both tourists and residents can purchase 28 grams in a single transaction.

What 'exactly' am I trying to get at or say?

For those that desire a United States to be as United in a well regulated way, what are some possible avenues of 'taking' IF the U.S is not well regulated but more disorderly?


With the 'majority' of wealth holders in The World having their residence(s) within The U.S, it would seem more likely than not for them to at least share some 'travel' or 'moving' information with the other U.S citizens, right? Well if not for those things, then maybe at least for personal 'safety'??


Or is asking such a thing to the 'wealthy' like a 'zinger' out from 'no-where' field?


Have a 'good' Day?

:2wave:




Not 'you'.. Myself... 'I' want to be a cowboy... lol
