You know; I was so dumb when I was a teenager, in today's society, I'd have gotten killed a 100 times!
I write about illegal drugs, anti-violence, etc, for all the young people out there and for everyone.
So people might know what kinds of poison drugs and alcohol are and understand the dangers associated with this lifestyle. In order to allow them to be able to make an informed decision, about whether they want to use or not. (*I'm not referring to marijuana here It should be regulated like alcohol imo, and would put it in the same category).
Nothing changes, it just re-appears in different forms.
As long as there is poverty there will be crime.
Hungry children start out stealing food and wondering why they don't have what other people have
It often escalates from there.
Criminality, is learned behavior. Just as being successful, is learned behavior.
Honky-Tonk Bud jailhouse poem
Honky-Tonk Bud, the Hip-Cat Stud stood diggin’ a game of pool,
Now Honky wasn't braggin', but his bags was baggin, and he was feelin' pretty cool,
It was the 15th frame, of a nine ball game, as Honky stood digging his play.
When; with a sudden shrug, he suddenly dug, this strange cat coming his way.
Now this cat, was a funny time cat and he wore a funny time hat.
He wanted to know where Joe was,
Honky said, “Joe’s not around, his bags are down and he ain’t feelin’ too cool,
But if you’re wantin’ to cop some sigh, I’ll cop for you,
'Cause I’m Honky-Tonk Bud the Hip-Cat Stud from Venice Avenue,
And in five seconds flat, Honky was back, pourin’ out smack from a cellophane sack,
He looked at the funny lookin’ guy and says, “Jim, I’m high.”
Jim says; “That’s cool, cause, "dig Honky, it's the fbi."
So after three long years at San Quentin, Honky-Tonk Bud the Hip-Cat Stud was once again diggin’ a game of pool,
Now Honky wasn't braggin', but his bags was baggin', and
Once again, he was feelin' pretty cool,
It was the fifteenth frame of a nine ball game when, out the corner of his eye,
Who should he spy but that same funny lookin’ guy,
He wanted to know where Joe was,
Honky says, “Joe’s not around, his bags are down and he ain’t feelin’ too cool,
And if you’re wantin’ to cop some sigh, I’ll tell you right now,
Jim, you a damn fool.”
I love this poem.
It reminds me of a guy I knew in Bayonne. (NJ)
He told it to me, back in 68'.
Tony, used to say all kinds of wise stuff like; "what goes around comes around, be careful what you wish for, you just might get it."
He got murdered, 1970. He was 20 years old.
So this poem has sentimental value to me.
In the Middle East we have sectarian violence. In America we have the failed war on drugs and government failure to provide safe gun legislation and regulations. People are dying out there all the same.
84 People were shot in Newark, New Jersey July 4th weekend!
You can be sure all of the shooters were zonked out of their minds on drugs and or alcohol. Or in withdrawal looking for drugs and alcohol.
Drugs are a big fake out. Used to keep people down and in economic bondage. "The rich get rich and the poor get poorer."
Unless the poor are smart and upwardly mobile.
Drugs and alcohol, keep you back when you're young (your productive years). If they don't hook you for life or kill you.
Drug Education Is The Key To Drug Prevention. Stop It Before It Starts!
Drug Education should start to be taught in grammar school.
In the 1st, 2nd grades. Even on the most basic level, don't smoke cigarettes, don't drink alcohol, never take medicine unless a parent or doctor gives it to you, like that. Increasing info with age. Until young people grow up knowing that drugs, alcohol, tobacco, etc. are bad and kill.
Reverse the drug propaganda. Replace it with the truth and facts about drugs, alcohol and about violence too.
I was 17 in nineteen sixty-seven. I know drugs and alcohol!
I had numerous, near-death episodes with drugs and alcohol when I was a teenager and in my early twenties.
Been there, decided to straighten out because I didn't want to die.
My Mother used to pray to St Jude (the Patron Saint of hopeless cases), for me everyday.
She used to say, that "God kept me alive because he had a special purpose for me."
Drugs are very misunderstood. They're dangerous and are actually a tool of the oppressor. Alcohol too.
I don't advocate a war on users and small time dealers.
I advocate a solution that just removes the source from ever getting to the streets.
The Federal Government can follow every blogger in the country, but they can't keep a lid on the big time drug racket?
I have a very good solution for dealers. Note to drug dealers, invest in real estate instead of dope.
Use law enforcement resources to keep drugs; especially, ie crystal meth, pcp, lsd, ecstasy, illegal pharmaceuticals, etc and illegal guns off the streets. These drugs are the worst and the last stop on the drug train to hell.
Get users help instead of incarcerating them for non-violent drug offenses. Free Drug And Alcohol Rehab Centers
The government has to do something immediately, to stop the flood of illegal guns into America's cities and towns.
Responsible gun ownership is fine. But responsible gun owners should understand the necessity of keeping illegal guns away from irresponsible people!
It's all a game. The rich get rich because they have the education or someone in their background had the know how and they don't want to share.
They keep the facts of how to be successful, hidden.
That's one reason those with the economic power, don't like education. They fear that people are already so smart and with an education they will take what the rich want.
Keep Em' Dumb, Keep Em' Down. A very old saying.
Isolate the Victim.
Convince them that they like it.
Oh No, Stockholm Syndrome!
Recruit and Convince Accomplices.
Argue with the victim.
Leave occasionally (randomly but consistently).
a Beat the victim occasionally physically or emotionally, threaten often!
b Demoralize them to the point that they believe anything you tell them as truth!
Never let the victim forget you are (supposedly),
superior to them.
Pretend Nothing's Going On!
