Points You Can Make About the DREAM Act
The DREAM Act is bipartisan legislation that gives eligible young people who were brought to the US as children the opportunity to resolve their immigration status and work towards citizenship.

To move from being undocumented to being a US citizen, those eligible will have to pass background checks and be of good moral character, graduate from high school, and go on to complete additional requirements related to attending college or completing military service.

The DREAM Act is supported by 70 percent of likely voters and by leaders in education, the military, business and religious orders.

A national poll of 1,008 adults, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation for First Focus in June 2010, shows that support cuts across regional and party lines with 70 percent overall support.

University presidents and educational associations, as well as military recruiters, business and religious leaders have called on Congress to pass the DREAM Act.

The DREAM Act is a great return on money we have already invested and will prepare the country for the global economy.

The students who would benefit under the DREAM Act have been raised and educated in the US State and local taxpayers have already invested in the education of these children in elementary and secondary school. America deserves a return on their investment.

Leading businesses such as Microsoft have endorsed the DREAM Act because they recognize that our broken immigration system is draining our economy of the talent and resources needed to compete in the global economy.

The DREAM Act promises to dramatically increase the pool of highly qualified recruits for the US Armed Forces.
There is a strong tradition of military service in immigrant families, but the lack of immigration status prevents many of those who wish to serve from enlisting.

Passage of the DREAM Act will increases revenues in our communities.

Enabling 800,000 immigrant students access to higher education would go a long way in inspiring other immigrant youth to strive for a college education. This will help boost the number of high skilled American-raised workers. As they take their place as hard working, taxpaying Americans, they will contribute a lifetime of revenues at the local, state and federal level.

My Father's Family came from Russia and Latvia.

My Grandfather Nathan, traveled all the way from Russia by himself as a teenager. He had a Brother, who already lived in Connecticut.

My Grandmother Sarah; came with her Father, Mother and Sisters from Latvia. Her Father was an Orthodox Rabbi.

I know they arrived in America before 1888; because my Grandmother Sarah and Nathan were married and their oldest child Florence, my Father's Sister, was born during one of the great blizzards 1881 or 1888.

The Great Blizzard of 1888 photos

Blizzard of 1888 wikipedia

My Father was born August 4th 1893. On Grand Street; NYC, (by the Brooklyn Bridge); Manhattan's Lower East Side.

They moved to Bayonne New Jersey, where Sarah's relatives lived when he was 7 yrs old.

He grew up to be a Bayonne Fireman and Bar owner and knew everyone in New York City.

My Father and his Brother Harry, were both in the Navy during WWI.
My Father Sam Atkins Jazz Age
My Mother's Parents arrived in America around 1905, from Ireland.

My Grandfather Michael was from the County Clare. He worked on the Central Railroad; (in Jersey City), 100 years ago. Unloading box cars with a big hook. He and his fellow workers, sweltered in the summer and froze in the winter!

Central Railroad of New Jersey

NJ Central Railroad Terminal located at Liberty State Park.

(Jersey City NJ Sues In Federal Court To Stop spectra's gas pipeline).

I think Mike's older Sister was already here when he arrived. She did live nearby.

My Grandmother Bridget was from County Offaly. She always told my Mother that we were descended from the Kings and Queens of Ireland. Bridget's Brother, Tim was in the Army in WWI.

My Mother was born on Montgomery Street; in Jersey City (Hudson County) New Jersey in 1909, she was the oldest of 8 children.

She started working; running errands for dressmakers, going all the way to New York City. As young as, seven years old. She had to give her pay to her Mother but could keep her tips. 

Before that; from around age five, my Mother was expected to run household errands, like go to the stores and carry as much as five pounds worth of sugar, flour or other groceries home.

Every time I asked for a new pair of shoes; etc, she told me the story of how her Teacher/Nun, gave her a new pair of (ugly) brown shoes and she didn't like the color. But her father said they were good, strong shoes, and made her wear them anyway.

Or about the dress she made from a bathing suit. She had the picture.

Or if I didn't like some food she served, it was about how her Mother cooked goose every Christmas and she hated goose.

Vaporizing 101-Alternate Title⋆Nothing's As Easy As It Looks

Information for anyone interested in vaporizing, but who, haven't got a clue about Vaporizers.
Vaporizer (Inhalation Device)
♕☆Have Computer⋆⋆♞⋆⋆Will Cyber Travel✰♕
I'll start with the (short version) then, anyone who has the interest or the time to read it can scroll down to my synopsis at the bottom of this diary and enjoy my entire story and the many new, great links I found.

As I said in previous posts; my HUD housing; $95 a month rent, apartment building went smoke free.

No one told me until a new manager was hired. Then; she threatened to evict me, even though smoking was allowed, five years ago when I moved in. They changed the rules. Apparently they're allowed to do this, or not?

In the end, I didn't get evicted.

I complied with their demand to not smoke on the property and now; my Landlord, knows me personally, not just by reputation, joining the crowd, of those who love me. Of course, some others don't.

I went to Court Sept 21st. I gave the Building Owner a copy of the paid receipt for my vaporizer. We shook hands and building manager, even gave me a ride home.

Owner; coincidentally, also happens to be a Lawyer. (So convenient). I recognized him from around the buildings, town and the manager called him "Counselor".

It took a lot of effort, finding a vaporizer that works with loose tobacco and then figuring out, how to use it correctly (all in the middle of a hot as heck summer and an eviction threat drama), but I did it. I finally succeeded!

When I get angry, I can do anything.

I am a very tolerant person, until something gets me mad.

Then I go into, Ninja ✰ Street Lawyer Mode!

I wrote and gave the Building Owner: an 8 page statement about why they had no case legally. But, the owners had me at, smoking is a big fire hazard.

I live around mostly very elderly senior citizens who would be impossibly hard to evacuate.

Yeah; I wasn't touching this one, for sure.

I do not want to set any kind of legal precedent that people can smoke. Or not smoke, either.

But I did help set one precedent. One, that recognizes vaporizing as being allowed in all non-smoking residences. Even in Federally assisted, HUD Housing (where I live).

That's what is says on the legal paper the building owner and I signed. That vaporizing is allowed. So that's good.

Even; in legal Medical Marijuana States, if patients rent an apt, house, etc, they have to get the building owners permission to use cannabis.

They can't be refused permission, as it's a medicine. But they can be prohibited from smoking it.

I'm a Fireman's Daughter.

I hate cigarettes, I hate the ashes that fly all over the place.

I was starting to feel like Cinderella here.

I hated worrying all the time if I was setting the place on fire.

What I Learned

After over five months of researching; housing law, vaporizers, vaporizer pens, talking to, getting to know vaporizer retailers, having watched at least 20 video reviews, tutorials, read websites, warranties, guarantees, purchased and returned three pens, read numerous reviews and much more.

I found out that not all vaporizers are suitable for tobacco.

ie, The pens, are really made to use with cannabis and other light density herbs.

From my experience, the dry herb pens work, ok, for a light smoker. A person who smokes five to 10 cigarettes a day. (Like someone who wants to step out in a work situation and grab a quick 15-20 puffs, and doesn't want to smell like cigarettes afterward, who doesn't have the time, or want to smoke an entire cigarette). Besides cannabis, this is another use for the vaporizer pens.

Dry herb vaporizer pens will not work well for someone who constantly needs tobacco/nicotine vapor on demand, people who smoke a pack and a half a day.

Vaporizer pens usually run on batteries. The batteries stay charged, aprox one hour. More expensive pens have a battery charge of 3 hours.

Battery charge is  not long enough for a heavy, pack a day plus smoker. They all take 4 to 5 hours to re-charge and one has to press a button every time they want a couple of puffs.

They say the charge lasts for 1,000 puffs. That's with cannabis or the e-juice.

Not my experience with tobacco.

First of all; anyone wanting to vaporize should discuss it with their Doctor. Have a physical etc.

Especially with the liquid (e-juice) vaporizers.

For nicotine, the e-juice pens are the easiest to use but have caused allergic reactions to some people.

Because the e-juice liquid has glycerine and alcohol in it.

I can't use e-cigs or e-juice vaporizer pens because I'm seriously allergic to glycerine (I get boils). Good thing I didn't try them.

I don't even drink. I had my gallbladder removed in 2003 and am very allergic to any kind of alcohol and have many food allergies too.

There are lots of good, cheaper vaporizer pens for just cannabis. Almost any one will work with marijuana. Some of the less expensive dry herb pens, are really going to mostly combust the herb. That's ok too. At least there's no toxic paper and way less smell. 

I finally purchased, the Arizer V-Tower Vaporizer.

The only good cleaner I found; is, the Effin brand. It's about $15 to $20 a month to keep the glass parts clean. Still way cheaper than cigarettes.

I only use about a quarter of the Effin cleaner package. That's enough to clean the elbow adapter and other glass parts, and screens.

I cut a hole in the top and put a cut piece of drinking straw in it to pour it with. Tie with a twist tie and pour directly into the elbow adapter and the little elbow adapter screens. I use warm water in a large food type container.

*You have to keep those little screens that fit in the elbow adapter (glass part on top) clean or you won't get any puffs.

I was just having that problem. I had to really clean them last night. I wasn't getting good vapor.

I'm still learning how to use this vaporizer, so looked and saw that  the screen was totally clogged. Apparently, just soaking in cleaners, was not removing baked on gunk.

I just scraped them with a paper clip. Then, I used the corner of a  piece of paper towel and kept twisting it in until all the gunk came off on it.

If the elbow screens aren't kept clean, no puffs can get through. If you can see light through the screen, it's ok. Not seeing anything, it needs cleaning.

Ignore the other screens in the herb bowl. Just cleaning solution works on them. I wouldn't even try to take them out.

I have 3 of the hoses with elbow adapters. They have to be cleaned all the time, I always have one soaking and drying.

I use two a day. Switch to a clean after about 10 hours use.

If one is using the vaporizer for tobacco. It will get gunked up.

I pre-soak my hoses and glass parts.

Sometimes in apple cider vinegar (for about 1/2 hour). Vinegar loosens up any gunk, helps remove soap too.

Then I rinse everything and put it in the Effin Cleaner and soak overnight
Other cleaners have isopropyl alcohol in them. I'm allergic. Wouldn't use that anyway.

After cleaning I always soak the glass parts; in a couple of cap fulls of lemon juice and water, for about an hour. Works good, makes it taste nice and gets rid of any soapy, cleaner taste.

Vaporizing 411

For Medical Marijuana

Start Temperature 480, let heat up for about three minutes. Place bowl with herb, about 1/3 full on heating element. Let heat for about 30 seconds and puff.

Take a few puffs and lower the temperature down, to anywhere from 440 to 430, stir.

When visible vapor puffs stop, stir and more puffs and stir, till there's no more vapor.

Repeat and continue-until no more puffs. Up to 100 puffs per joint counted.

Vaporizing cannabis is easy. Grind the herb like for a joint, put in bowl, let heat for 1 minute and puff, big clouds of vapor (depending on how much cannabis you put in).

Tobacco has to be dry, ground fine. Put about 1/2 bowl fill. Wait about 1 minute and puff. Heat 2 minutes at 480 lower to about, from 450 to 465.

Should get about 20 puffs. Stir occasionally and empty bowl scrape elbow screen with stirrer and refill.

Vaporizer Buyer Guide

How To Use The Extreme Q and the Arizer V-Tower Vaporizers

ArizerExtreme Q And V-Tower Temperature Guide

Arizer V-Tower Review The Daily Smoker-Amsterdam 2014(c)

Important; check your sellers warranties and return policies.

Read Instruction Manuel.

With the Arizer V Tower, There's an air vent at the bottom of the V Tower. Do Not Block The Air Flow.

For instance. Don't put the vaporizer on a tablecloth. I had that problem.

Puffing ever so slightly pulled the tablecloth over the air vent. I got rid of tablecloth and now I get good puffs.

Also needed are about 4 square sized, pot holders and a couple of cotton place mats. The $1/99 cent store has them in the housewares aisle.

The glass bowl and adapter, get hot. Too hot to touch. But not flammable. Still it will melt plastic. Only cotton is best.

3 large plastic food containers to soak and clean whip hoses, etc. Again, $1/99 cent store.

A bottle of lemon juice.

A bottle of apple cider vinegar. Only type I can use. Distilled vinegar makes me dizzy.

The only tobacco I found that works is the "American Spirit Original Blend", powder blue package. It's a medium-light tobacco. Heavier tobaccos were too hard to vaporize.

It got to the point that it became a choice between food and cigarettes.

Food was winning. Then my building going smoke free, pushed cigarettes way to the back of the line.

I'm sick of the smoke, the smell, the carcinogens, the whole thing.

Now I'm smoke free and I am; once again, the winner!

With; as every consumer should have, the upper hand with my Landlord (what an archaic name, land lord). Landlord-Tenant Laws in Your State

Property management acted, so off the wall. Screamed, yelled, threatened, pointed their finger to the door like some 19th century drama villein. Screaming, "I'm going to evict you". Total, mind control.

So now; five months later, I've been re-programmed as a non-smoker. (I still get my nicotine. I just vaporize it).

I could have Stockholm syndrome too. I get that a lot.

Property manager broke scores of laws all along. But you know; when they own the property, they can try it on, (as we say in NJ).

It worked out for me. I've been trying to quit smoking cigarettes for at least the past 20 years.

I buy a canister of American Spirit loose tobacco, for $32.95.

Compared to a carton of cigarettes that costs $58. Total of about $85 a week.

The canister should last at least a month or longer. It's over 5 1/4 ounces. 

I'll save about $3,000 a year vaporizing loose tobacco vs smoking factory manufactured cigarettes. Good reason to vaporize. 

There are a lot of discussion out there about smoking (combusting) cannabis, or vaporizing it?

IMO vaporizing it is better.

Vaporizing with tobacco, it's kind of like using an enclosed pipe. (Vaporizer review videos; showing people getting huge clouds of smoke, is, because they're smoking cannabis, not tobacco).

But vaporizing with cannabis is what vaporizers were really meant for.

Vaporizers release significantly more  Cannabinoids from the marijuana without the need for combustion and without the waste that comes with burning.

Combusted smoke contains up to 88% non-cannabinoid material where vaped weed is made up of 95% cannabinoids.

You get much more puffs vaporizing rather than combusitng cannabis. 75% more puffs. With combustion, you burn the herb. It's gone.

Vaporizing works like a convection oven. It heats the herb, releases the oils into a vapor.

With convection the vapor stays in the vaporizer hose, until you draw/puff on it.

In a vaporizer with heat control. You set the chamber for the amount of vapor you want by adjusting the temperature.

Also; you don't get lethargic, weak and the high is elevated to a stronger level.

I don't know if I'm doing it correctly or not, I usually, get good vapor at 445f to 475f with tobacco, (usually). About 430f for cannabis or other herbs.

Take bowl off to fill. I got tobacco drips filling it on the base.


My HUD housing complex went smoke free. I moved in with smoking allowed. Now I've been told I am no longer allowed to smoke in the apt and on the property.

So, for the past three months I've had a building manager inspecting every couple of weeks. Every time; she says "I smell smoke, if I smell smoke the next time I'm here, I'm going to evict you."

I was like, "what"???

Well they did it, the Sheriff was at my door! Showed up on a fri night, at 5:30pm.

The property manager had given me a notice to quit 30 days previously.

My advice to anyone If a landlord gives you a "Notice To Quit", that's the 30 day notice of eviction. 

Lawyer up immediately!

In 30 days the Sheriff will be at your door with an eviction notice, then you'll have aprox 3 or 4 days to bring or overnight mail the court a completed form, called a "ticket to appear" which says you'll be at the hearing.

Also the landlord could file any place in the state he owns property. ie 60 miles away. So; besides returning the ticket to appear to the Court you could also have to send, what's called a "change of venue" request to be able to go to the Court in your immediate area. (mail overnight guaranteed mail $20 US Post Office, return receipt required).

If you don't return these forms to the court by the date on the summons, they will come and padlock your apartment, throw you out immediately and you'll have to fight to get your possessions.

You also; have to send your landlord copies of these forms, certified mail, return receipt requested too.

Oh yeah the forms are not included with the summons.

Always; in any legal situation, just get a Lawyer immediately.

Tricky part they pulled on me was, they filed in a town 40 miles away.

I had a Seniors Lawyer, recommended by my local Seniors Center. They are a 501 funding is low and they are very busy. So she could only advise me and mediate a little. This was an easy case since I was complying. Not just as fast as property management wanted me to.

This Lawyer sent me the forms and talked the Senior Center Lady through showing me how to fill them out and send them.

It's not whether one knows they have a winning case or not, it's the technicalities of the law are what trips one up.

You got to have a Lawyer! Unless you can't get a Lawyer, never pro say (do it yourself) a case.

Old saying; "He who acts as his own Lawyer, has a fool for a client."

It all started here;

Updated Is There A Lawyer In The House??? With a side addendum here You Can't Judge A Book By Looking At The Cover

Then it morphed into this, Medical Marijuana Becoming A Reality-Needs To Be Legalized Nationally And Federally

I also Googled quite a few "how to stop smoking" websites.

I heard that people who start vaporizing often are able to stop smoking tobacco completely.

I feel much better already.

Smoking is dirty and passe'.

Not having to worry if I'm burning the apartment down when I go out or to sleep at night, is "Priceless"!


Buying a vaporizer is a little investment up front, but saves a lot in the long run.

The V Tower seems to be working with the tobacco.

Jonathan; at Vapor Nation Customer service, said sometimes it takes people a couple of days to learn how to use it.

It took me, 3 months!

But I'm starting to get good puffs now.

The most important things are, that tobacco is very dry and ground fine and elbow adapter and it's screen are kept clean.

If I could have afforded it (for use with tobacco) I might have even spent an extra $100 for the Extreme Q Tower. It has a fan to help heat up the tobacco. For cannabis the V Tower works perfectly. 

I don't know if vaporizing would satisfy every tobacco user. I only smoked ultra-light cigarettes and they were too strong for me. I couldn't breath half the time.

It took me a month or two in order to stop craving the other many chemicals in factory manufactured cigarettes.

I wanted to share this with everyone.

I kept googling and finally found two great retailers for vaporizers.

I also learned that not all Vaporizer Companies/Sellers/Stores are the same either.

I also wanted to share these two honest vaporizer companies. All the salespeople are so nice and helpful. We've become friends. I message them any questions I had and they always have the answer. The internet is big out there and a person can get robbed.

So; I wrote this for myself and to pass it along to anyone who might have a need, or want to vaporize.

Most vaporizer retailers I saw in my research to buy one, have variable warranties.

Things like; they don't guarantee all the parts, etc and they want the buyer to pay re-stocking fees on returns.

They will only take back un-opened, un-used products.

What, you bought it just to look at it and send back?

Some don't care and sell junk. It took me 90 days to get a refund on one vaper pen that didn't work and the seller wasn't authorized to sell it. So the distributor wouldn't honor the warranty. Luckily I purchased it with a debit card, not a check (I don't have any credit cards). What a hassle.

These two stores are the best that I found on the internet in four months of research looking for a vaporizer to buy.

I have no interests in any of these companies and it's a personal choice if one wants to spend over $200 (with spare parts, cleaners etc).

I am just a satisfied customer. And I support small business.

1 ★★★★★Vape Vets, has my vote for best return policy and warranty that I saw in my search.

Daniel; (the owner), also has the best 1 year warranty guaranteeing all parts of the vaporizer.

Most sellers won't guarantee heating chambers or batteries. Daniel guarantees all parts!

30-Day Hassle-Free Refund Policy If you are unsatisfied or unhappy with your item, you may return it within 30 days after you receive it.

With Daniel; at Vape Vets Store's help, I kept looking and finally, purchased the V Tower Vaporizer.

He took back two vape pens that I bought that were not for tobacco.

I knew nothing about vaporizers. Except that I read about them, years ago. That people were using them in the bars and restaurants in New York City).

When I asked could I get a refund on this vaporizer too? Daniel said he'd even, still give me store credit if I bought the V Tower vaporizer from him and wanted to return it. He didn't say so, but (This would be the my third return and refund). He told me, this model was very expensive and he didn't make much on it.

BTW, Daniel can get you anything you see on the Vapor Nation site. He's a really nice guy and so honest.

2 ★★★★★Vapor Nation, Great Sales, good warranty.

A really cool company out in California. I got 20% off V Tower so it only cost $119.99 and had free shipping. I also got 5 free gifts.

Vapor Nation doesn't have Vape Vets Store's 30 day return cash back, return policy on open and used products, but they will give store credit for unsatisfactory items. Great warranty too.

I knew I was spending $120 and I would own this vaporizer.

But by then, I was pretty confident in knowing what doesn't work with tobacco.

I trepidatiously kept my fingers crossed.

I told myself "If this doesn't work with tobacco. I'm going into an in-patient re-hab, I've had it with cigarettes." I have Medicare and Medicaid.

Arizer is a good product. With Vapor Nations 20% off Summer Sale, V Tower kept me from getting evicted.

I would definitely purchase an extra Arizer Whip Kit $22.99. To keep one clean and use one.

Get a couple of spare Arizer whips.

They whips w/elbow adapter, alone are only $14.99 with always, 10% to 20% off and (free shipping). You'll need to have a clean one and so important, an extra elbow adapter.

The whip comes with the elbow adapter attached. Don't take it off. Only remove the round screen for cleaning. Turn the screen like a screw until it loosens up.

I broke an adapter, trying to remove it.

If the V Tower is used with tobacco, the whip/hose is going to get stained. Nothing will get rid of it. So no point in removing the elbow adapter to clean.

The elbow adapter is the only truly fragile glass part. Unless you drop the others on a stone floor or something.

Anyone interested should call these companies and ask questions. They will be happy to answer them.

Actually they, (Vapor Nation) and Vape Vet Store just partnered up. kismet, for sure!

These are two great companies, each offers something different. The best I saw.

Teaming up; East Coast, West Coast, so cool.

What a task, finding a vaporizer that works with tobacco and then having to figure out how to get it to work!

Now, I see what I've been inhaling all these years!

Saudi Arabia-Free Blogger Raif Badawi♥

Saudi Arabian authorities arrested Blogger; Raif Badawi, on June 17, 2012.

They charged him with insulting Islam and creating the “Saudi Arabian Liberals” website for social and political debate.

The charges related to articles Raif wrote criticizing religious figures.

The Criminal Court; pronounced a sentence of 10 years in prison, 1000 lashes and a fine of 1 million riyals (about $290,000 CDN).

After Raif serves a decade in jail, he is also forbidden to travel for the following decade and from participating in the media.

Take Action For Human Rights  Sign The Petition.

Send a message to Naif Bandir Alsudairy, Ambassador for Saudi Arabia.

Tell the Ambassador; that this is way too harsh a punishment.

That he should just exile Raif Badawi, to Canada where his family are. I'm sure Mr Badawi would promise never to come back to Saudi Arabia.

This is a much better solution. One much more acceptable to the World. Who are watching.

I saw about Raif Badawi on Facebook last night and felt compelled to help him.

We Bloggers have to stick together.

Also it's no lie; or secret, about how severe the laws in places like Saudi Arabia Are.
