My 'con' Diane Black is not only an Israel firster but has a husband who claims to be a doctor and has made millions in the drug testing industry through his company Aegis Sciences Corporation. This pseudo-doctor is now making the rounds at Tennessee's capital hill trying to influence the legislature to derail the "Safe Access to Medical Cannabis Act." Of course he stands to lose a sizable chunk of his income from this sensible bill especially if one day full legalization comes to be. He and his wife, who needs to be ousted from Congress, might have to actually work for a living if the fraud of the 'war on drugs' ends.
The letter Mr. Black is passing around is here. Lobbying to maintain one's position in a con game is nothing new, in fact, it's how the legal system works. According to the illegal meanderings of the Supreme Court, Aegis is a person who can give bribes and influence people to maintain their positions of power and profit.
Even the Tennessean is publishing what most likely is a lobbyist screed posing as an 'editorial.'
The fix is in. A couple of things the Tennessee legislature cannot be accused of is having common sense and compassion. Honest representation at all levels of government without the taint of blood money is a broken concept.
