The truckers convoy is coming to America, they just left Kingman AZ

headed to the E coast, looks like following I-40 and 44. They plan to spend the weekend in my state of OK. They will be in Elk City on the W border with NM on Saturday and Vinita on the E border with MO/AR on Sunday.
It will be interesting to see if Stitthead chooses to enforce his law which went into effect 4-21 " A new law in Oklahoma increases penalties for demonstrators who block public roadways and grants immunity to motorists who unintentionally kill or injure protesters while attempting to flee."
Under the new law, obstructing the use of a public street or highway during a protest is considered a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in county jail and/or a fine ranging from $100 to $5,000. Another provision grants civil and criminal liability protection to motorists who unintentionally cause injury or death while "fleeing from a riot."
If you would like more info on what they are up to, or to see the route/schedule, this looks like the official website.

I don't know who else to ask....

How do I find an Atheist therapist? There is nothing like wasting time and money trying to explain to a therapist that the religious cult you grew up in is still negatively effecting your daily life and having them tell you to get down on your knees and pray to Jesus so all will be forgiven.
3 times I have tried, all 3 tries have ended the same. There has to be a better way. What am I missing?
FTR - I have asked the same question of a Tulsa Atheist group and one based in OKC and never got an answer.

The story line is SO BAD it sounds fake - It's not.

A black man's car broke down near a gas station where he left it at 2:30 AM after a cop gave him a ride home. His brother gets pissed because it was his car and he thinks it's going to get towed before he can get it back so he calls 911. The same cop returns to house and shoots the guy he took home 10 times!!! Afterwards he gives the dude CPR and saves his life. The state police confirm he was UNARMED.

A question about FB

First of all, please don't reply if you're only going to tell me how bad it is and I shouldn't be there. I am confined to my house ALONE and speaking is VERY difficult. I belong to many FB groups, it how I manage to stay the least bit connected to the world around me.
I do post quite frequently in those groups and have NEVER had an issue, until today.
I just received a notice/ban for posting too frequently. I looked - 16 times since 8am. I've seen people post more than that on a single thread within MINUTES.
No time limit was given, I can still like posts, but I can't make one or comment. I've had an account for 12 years. I'm obviously NOT a bot. What is this fresh hell? Is it permanent? How do I know? And is there anything I can do about it??

Is there a website dedicated to officially licensed RBG merchandise?

I googled it and got a thousand companies selling RBG merch, some said it was "official". I don't want to buy crap and I would prefer my money went for a cause rather than profit. I would love to buy some stocking stuffers, please, someone point me in the right direction!

Believing the jackboots wouldn't assault them was their first mistake.

They will ALWAYS attempt to purge the enemy's childbearing women. That's why the highest bounties paid on scalps were on "squaws" and for those of you who do not know the true meaning of that word - Squaw is what they called the crudely removed perineal region of a Native woman - not a scalp.

A question about seeds and growing

I am new to all of this and also have a black thumb. I am signed up for a growing class but on a waiting list because it's the most popular one around. A few night ago a friend stopped by with some fine bud. He left a pinch on the tray and later when I was about to share some with hubby I noticed a seed in it.
Can I sprout this seed? If so, can someone share a good link with step by step instructions?

Can someone explain edible dosage?

While not new to smoking, I am a newly registered medical patient and i am just learning about edibles. I have been experimenting with different types and strengths and I have one major question...
Why is it that I can eat 1/2 of a 60mg brownie and feel practically nothing while a 20 mg hard candy has me feeling great and still yet a 10 mg cookie has me staring at the walls? This seems backward!
All were the same brand, purchased on the same date, at the same pharmacy, consumed on an empty stomach near the same time of day, all with dramatically different effects! I can understand how the hard candy might be absorbed quicker, but not why that would make a difference in the overall potency. Is it common for an individual to have different tolerances to different products or even to different brands?

Please HELP I am overwhelmed!!

I live in Oklahoma and just got my medical card. I am an old woman who has smoked for a long time, even made a few good batches of brownies, but I am out of my league in a dispensary. I need a good course in the basics of how to shop and how the different strains and products (oil, wax, tincture, ect) can be used.
I am also a retired nurse who made good grades in chemistry and have known a few kitchen wizards in my day I want to delve deeply into the chemistry so that in the future I can process my own plants into the other products mentioned above.
Plants first - I have a black thumb. It's something I have worked HARD to correct since retiring. Eggplants, peppers of all kinds and roses seem to be my biggest successes so far, but this IS something I AM going to learn!!

Can anyone recommend a book they would consider All Things Marijuana for Dummies? And possible another book for Chemistry and yet another for Botany? I would prefer hard copy books. I'm old school, I want to write notes in margins, highlight portions and put tabs on the really important sections.

Any and all advice for a complete newbie would be greatly appreciated!
