Honky-Tonk Bud jailhouse poem

♥For Patricia and her Family♥ Friends way back when; friends then, friends forever.

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.

You Can't Judge A Book By Looking At The Cover

Adventures In Internet Shopping
Or caveat emptor.

A concept I'd heard of in connection with internet shopping and one I'm sure, you all already know about. This was the first time I ever shopped online, except for my Dell computer, (and then I talked to a sales rep on the free 800 number).

Here's the story.

As I related in my Jul 24th diary; (Is There A Lawyer In The House???), my HUD housing complex went smoke free in 2012.

But they neglected to send out notices. No one told me, until a new property manager (third one in five years), came to my apt on another un-related matter and noticed I smoke. Property management expected people to see it in their lease when they renewed it. But I had cataracts and didn't see it.

Now just like that, I've been given an eviction notice called a "notice to quit." (you know there's no law unless we know how to and fight for ourselves. Whey a good education is so important).

I immediately called my local Seniors Center. Asked for a Lawyer's name (Even legal aid is fine for my case). I moved in here 5 years ago on the condition that smoking was allowed.

Now the buildings in their HUD housing complex next door, went smoke free this year.This time they sent them notices.

They've Grandfathered people in the other complex for at least a year to prepare, get smoke cessation help etc.

I didn't benefit from when they did that in my buildings, not having known until two months ago. So apparently I've been denied due process of law. You know I called a Lawyer immediately. That "notice to quit" is a legal maneuver, that has to addressed and as the old saying goes "he who acts as his own Lawyer, has a fool for a client", without a Lawyer they don't care. They'll run a non professional ragged, with all the legal terms, lies, etc. You know this property has Lawyers. That's where they got the notice to quit forms from. I got a good Lawyer too pro bono. The Seniors Law Project is good. I'm still waiting to hear, but they couldn't throw me out anyway. They rented to me on the basis I could smoke here. I'm too disabled to walk to the property line when the parking lot is a sheet of ice. So basically they would be demanding that I stop smoking. They can't do that. That's a violation of my fourth amendment right to privacy, which is even more strongly protected in the home. Whether you rent or own.

Big plus too, We have Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter Senator Jeanne Shaheen up here in NH and they wouldn't let anyone throw a crippled senior out in the street. All you have to do is email them. They always help.

Fifth Amendment: Due Process. The government may not deprive citizens of “life, liberty, or property” without due process of law. This means that the government has to follow rules and established procedures in everything it does.

I'm buying a vape pen. I don't want to smoke anyway. I hate cigarettes, I can't breath and the ashes are awful!

The Center gave me the name of an organization called, "The Seniors Law Project" apparently their nation wide.

I could have the Sheriff at my door Tuesday, (but I doubt it). My thirty days to comply are up then. 

I got a lawyer and I will comply because; once a person starts vaping they like it so much, they never go back to combustion type smoking like cigarettes.

I know about not buying a cheaper vaporizer because I've had two.

Both were returned because they were not suitable for tobacco. But I've gotten some puffs out of them in the meanwhile, so I know. 

With Vet Vape.com's one year warranty, it would end up costing about $15 a month to own-(On all the parts No other seller I've seen has that. Most don't insure the heating element).

I saw a calculator that say's, at six dollars a pack, I'll save over $3,000 a year vaping loose tobacco compared to buying it by the pack or carton.

I ran here to Kossacks for help and you told me about vaporizer pens. They're legal in my state.
So not to worry. Thanks to all of you Kossacks (who have helped me once again). I know where to get help. I have the situation well in control and again maintain the upper hand, as every consumer should. 

It's better to vape. Not worth a war with property owners. Who has the energy or the patience? Good rule to remember, (You get what you pay for. I pay $95 a month for a 750 square ft apartment, with a parking space. But I have no car).

Vaping with tobacco, it's such a much cleaner smoke. I stopped coughing in the morning since starting. Vaping is much healthier than smoking tobacco. No tar, etc. 

The problem is finding the right vaporizer for what you want to use it for and finding a good warranty.

This is the important part. The rest is just about how much you want to spend.

Nowadays with everywhere even parks going smoke free Vaporizer pens are the cigarette of the future. There is a big need out there for reliable vaporizers and a company that stands behind their product.

First thing I learned is; always buy from an authorized dealer/distributor.

I purchased a vaporizer pen online. There are many people selling vaporizers.

So I googled vaporizer pens and I saw an ad for dry herb pen. $53.99. Sounded like a reasonable price?

Well the site said "satisfaction guaranteed" and I was told there was a one year warranty on all parts of the pen. Anything one buys has to come with at least a warranty of usability.

It didn't work out of the box. I got about 20 puffs and the heating chamber wouldn't work any more. To keep this short. He said it had a one year warranty. Told me to go to distributor to get a replacement. The distributor told me they wouldn't honor their warranty because he was an un-authorized dealer and not allowed to sell with their warranty.

(I purchased it with my debit visa card. Using visa, etc is the only way to buy). Since it's a debit card I had to dispute the charge and will take 30-60 days for them to see if it's fraudulent.

Knowledge Is Power!

In my research purchasing a vaporizer pen, that would be big enough to use with tobacco, after over a months googling vaporizer pens, watching and reading reviews and checking out sellers guaranties/warranties. I luckily found Vape Vets.

The owner, Daniel is such an honest businessman. He has the very best guarantee and warranty on the web.

Vape Vet, is the only one I've seen that allows a 30 day,  refund or exchange even on open and used products and free return postage.

The secret of a good vaporizer is where you buy it and the guarantee. I recommend Vape Vets and their great guarantee and warranty. My purchase arrived in just 3 days.

Their additional one year guarantee, is also very good. Another thing and I don't see that anywhere else either. (I saw 60 days on one website).

Most vape sellers won't take them back if used. Only in un-opened, un-used condition???
Which is stupid. Vapes sit in warehouses,  batteries get old, so how can you tell if the vaporizer works if you don't try it.

Vape Vets is an established business not just someone selling on the internet and he has a full/no additional charges warranty, free returns and shipping, unlike some of the distributors warranties.

Vet Vape has three stores, one in  Greenwich Village, (my playground as a teenager and 20 something) and two uptown in the 70's.  

What I Learned About Buying A Vaporizer.

To get a vape pen that works with tobacco. Especially for heavy smokers. It's going to cost at least $170.

After my trials and misadventures in finding a vape pen for tobacco I learned a lot.

In the end I found out that don't buy plastic, or metal. They're, ok great, even for cannabis but make sure dealer throws in some silicone mouth protectors.

With tobacco the tip gets a little warm. So did the vapes with plastic cases. . These are not suitable for tobacco. You have to fire them up too many times.

Unlike the light easy to burn texture of cannabis, tobacco is a large heavy leaf they cut up.

All vape pens are not the same or appropriate for tobacco, even if they say they are. They mean for those 1/2 pack a day folks. Not for the pack and a half a day rest of us.

There isn't much of a choice in vapes. Buying a suitable vaporizer is all about, what you plan to put in it.

Even for weed. They're pretty much all the same. Some are just made cheaper, have no warranty.

In the vape world you get what you pay for. It your just looking for a pen to smoke a little herb discretely indoors. You can probably get a good vape pen for $25. Make sure they give you some glass screens and weed will vape good at any temperature.

But for tobacco, it's not the same.

After much misadventure. The first vape pen, I'm still waiting to get my refund or exchange for from the un authorized seller on the web.

And then, I didn't know about the temperature problems with plastic and metal and the heat needed to be generated to, and they were mostly combusting the tobacco, because these types under $100, are really only for cannabis and not suitable for tobacco.

I bought them from Vape Vet and yes, Daniel took them back no questions asked.

I will always buy from Vape Vet.com because once you know what kind of vaporizer to buy for your particular needs. It's all about the warranty.

If your going to pay over $25. Spend a little more and get one with a good warranty.

It's so important. Vaperizors are improving all the time but they're still pretty much fragile. Especially the cheaper ones. But if you pay $25 and it lasts six months still cheaper than rolled cigarettes.

Buying loose tobacco and vaping will save me at least $200 a month, than buying cartons of cigarettes would.

Anyway. I need a true vaporizer to fulfill the terms of my lease.

I'm buying this one. It has everything. Atmos Orbit Vaporizer - Dry Herb $169.95

Daniel also recommends this one. It's on Ebay and since he's the supplier it still has his one year warranty. It's only $79.95 a good one rubberized outer with rubber mouth tip, good quality. Good for a light smoker. Me I'm going for the bigger one. I am a smoker and cannot go outside in the middle of the country in a parking lot to smoke 25 or more times a day!

T-Vape Clone Dry Herb Vaporizer (Z-Top / AGO X, just like TVape) Free Shipping

1 Only buy from a reputable dealer who offers you their own 30 money back, no questions asked guarantee. And a full one year warranty on all the parts of the product itself. I checked every site there is practically looking for a good vapeorizer for tobacco. And no one has a guarantee Like Vet Vape.com. Distributors warranties are pretty awful (99% of these vaporizers are made in China and imported). So it's important to have a 1 yr warranty from the seller.

2 If you only want to vaporize cannabis (or e-juice), you can get a decent vaporizer for about $80. I prefer tobacco in a vaporizer pen.

3 But if you want to vaporize tobacco which is much heavier and denser, you won't get one that will work right, for less than $170. I just spent the last month researching them. I have to get one. It's easier and cheaper than moving.

I would personally; not use E-Cigs.

I'm very allergic to glycerine and alcohol both ingredients in the liquid, and I heard that they have a very strong nicotine blend. But they are a convenient alternative ie Manufacturer disclaimer: You should not use these products if you are pregnant or nursing, have heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or if you are allergic to nicotine, or propylene glycol or vegetable glycerine.

Vaping vs smoking cigarettes

I just love it when people try to f**ck with me. They've been doing it to me all my life.
For some reason they equate little (I'm 5ft 1 and 3/4), with vulnerability. Only in some areas which I've learned to avoid by now.

I learned my trademark invulnerability in Hudson County New Jersey.

Nowadays in Jersey City (where I was born) and right next to Bayonne (my hometown) at least one young person, 16, 18, 20's and two little five year olds' recently get shot, killed, stabbed, etc at the rate of at least one a week. It's like that in all the towns and cities in NJ. Even in my day, you had to be fast. Nowadays fast isn't enough.

I'm smoking since 1966.

My Mother blew smoke in my face since the day I was born.

Smoking was accepted.

We used to walk across the field of my old High School (Bayonne High, Bayonne NJ 1965-1969), smoking a cigarette and the Principal Mr O'Connor would be walking past and we were so dumb we thought he couldn't see the cigarette because we hid it behind our backs.

He was such a nice man. None of us would have graduated without his help. He used to tell us over the intercom when he caught us smoking in the bath room, "I will catch you all" A word to the wise is sufficient, Forewarned is forearmed."
Words of wisdom to carry through life I'm sure.

Bet lots of you were surprised a couple of weeks ago, I had a problem. 4th Amendment, Cigarettes, Medical Marijuana And More

Thing is I was just going to take property management to court and sue the heck out of them. But that's the hard way.

Kossacks are smarter than me. You all knew the easy way. And I have the street smarts to pull it off.

Drowning Doesn’t Look Like Drowning by Mario on May 3, 2010 Boating Safety, Water Safety

I grew up in Bayonne and Southern New Jersey (Brick Town. About 20 miles from Seaside Heights Boardwalk) and spent every summer swimming in its ocean and occasionally in its lakes. But mostly in the ocean.

I've swam at beaches, from Point Pleasant to Atlantic City.

The ocean is not a place for an inexperienced swimmer, no matter how calm it looks.

If caught in an outgoing tide; or rip tide, Don't Try To Swim In To The Shore. SWIM SIDEWAYS FROM ONE SIDE OF THE BEACH TO THE OTHER. Rip tides are sudden and are only in parts of the water.

Don't panic. If you swim sideways you will swim out of the rip tide affected water. It's impossible to fight the tide and try to swim in. It will just keep pulling you out further

The ocean may look beautiful, inviting and fun, but it can also be very dangerous for anyone who is not a strong swimmer. If you don't swim really good. Swim in the motel pool and stay in the shallow end. Pools can be dangerous too!

Never Mix Alcohol/Drugs With Activities Near Or In The Water!

Always wear a life jacket (swim vest), if you are not an experienced swimmer and always, when boating.

Teach Children To Swim!

Adult's Swim Vests

(I have no interests in these above companies. I just wanted to provide some links where economical swim vests were available).

Use caution when swimming in lakes, rivers, streams and generally everywhere.
Riverbeds, streams etc, often contain tree roots and other debris that a swimmer can get caught on. 

The fresh water, unlike the salt water of the ocean, doesn't provide any buoyancy which helps you to float .

Buoyancy Salt Water vs. Fresh Water

by Chris Sullivan
Also, the mud bottoms can pull one down.

Always wear a bathing suit when swimming (or at the most, cotton shorts and a tee shirt). Do Not wear heavy clothing, like jeans. You'll sink like a stone!

When in a desperate situation in the water you do not need an extra 8 pounds (aprox weight of a wet pair of jeans) pulling you down!

I learned how to swim by age five using a swim/life vest. I still almost drowned in a lake, once when I was a teenager.

I was just wading and stepped into a drop (also called a dip). The next thing I knew, I was over my head and going down.

I was wearing jeans and they became heavy as lead and were pulling me under and that was it!

Luckily I had the time to tear them off and then I managed to struggle back up to the surface.

At the time I was surrounded by people close enough to almost touch me. But apparently no one saw me go under.

I am a most experienced swimmer. If I can almost drown, anyone can!

NEVER SWIM, WHERE THERE IS NO LIFEGUARD PRESENT AND NEVER SWIM ALONE!

And Never jump into unfamiliar water. As well as never dive into unfamiliar water.

One never knows how deep the water is, local and current tide strength, whether it's full of large rocks and other hazards that one can hit.
And Never Drive While Intoxicated!
Not drunk or stoned.

♥Lakota Children Taken♥ Petition To Keep Them With Their Families♥

Lakota Child Rescue Project



Contact Pres Obama/Whitehouse

Contact Government-Contact information for US elected officials, government programs, departments, and agencies. USA.gov

Lakota People's Law Project

This short film; “Hearts on the Ground;” (Please Sign The Petition.) directed by Kalyanee Mam, documents South Dakota’s Forced Taking of Lakota Children. Free the Lakota Children! Tell Pres Obama, Stop State Kidnapping by South Dakota. Tell him to instruct his agencies to help the tribes bring the Lakota children home!

The video, is at the center of a new “Bring Lakota Children Home” Campaign. The epidemic of child taking by the State of South Dakota is tearing thousands of Lakota Sioux families apart.

The campaign, on behalf of thousands of Lakota Sioux families whose children have illegally and forcibly been removed from their families and tribes, demands that President Obama compel the Department of Justice to enforce the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) of 1978, and stop the State of South Dakota’s war on Lakota children.

Every day, Lakota Grandmothers are illegally denied their right to foster their own grandchildren. The South Dakota Dept. of Social Services rejects grandmothers for such trivial reasons as too few rooms in a home, too small of a home, too old, decades old crimes, and even rumors. "

South Dakota continues to violate the federal law by placing 90% of the 750 Lakota foster children it seizes each year into non-Native homes and facilities, instead of with relatives or tribal homes. Both federal law and the United Nations define this behavior as genocide. Only tribal programs are placing foster children with their relatives.

President Obama has the authority to order three federal agencies (the Department of the Interior, the Department of Justice and Department of Health and Human Services), to provide resources to train and develop tribal family service programs and foster care systems for the nine Lakota Sioux tribal Councils.

Within a short time, the $60 million in federal funds that currently go to the State of South Dakota’s Department of Social Services to illegally remove Indian children and force them into foster care, can instead be spent and managed by the tribes, as they work to keep children with relatives, while restoring tribal sovereignty.

Lakota children are more than ten times more likely to be forcibly removed from their parents and comprise about 60% of all foster children in the state.

In more than 90% of the cases, simply alleged “neglect,” as opposed to sexual or physical abuse, is given as the reason for the forced taking, sometimes at gunpoint, sometimes while at school, or in the middle of the night. Poverty equals “neglect” in the mind of the State workers.

What is happening to Lakota children and families in South Dakota today is precisely the sort of activity that Congress intended to stop when it passed the Indian Child Welfare Act. The Act mandates that when states remove Native American children from their parents, they must be placed with relatives from their extended family, or with other members of their tribe, or with members of other tribes. Only when an active effort for such placements fail are states allowed to place Native Americans in White foster homes, or state run foster care facilities.

The Department of Social Services in South Dakota continues to deny child placements to willing and capable relatives, while “stripping” parents of all parental rights to ever see their children again, for “violations” as trivial as failing to show up at parenting classes.

South Dakota designates every Native child in its foster care system as “special needs,” receiving up to $79,000 from the federal government for their care annually.
Then forcing many to take mind-altering drugs, even some as young at 18 months of age. Medicare spending for foster care child prescriptions in South Dakota increased more than 1,000 percent in the recent decade, while suicide rates for young Lakota children are 12 times the national average, and among the highest in the world. Some of the suicides are clearly related to the forced medications.

More than a century after being forced from their ancestral lands onto reservations, the 70,000 members of the Lakota Sioux nation remain the poorest, most oppressed people in the United States.

Let's turn around 150 years of cruel abuse to Lakota families.
Thanks!

Don't put any stickers on the envelope or your letter could get returned. Just an envelope and stamp. Apparently they think people can smuggle drugs on a sticker. This happened to me. Not in NYC, but I had a letter I wrote to someone in jail once returned because it had stickers on it.

At Rikers Island Awaiting Sentencing, Cecily McMillan Says, "I've Never Felt So Loved Before" Village Voice Anna Merlan May 16 2014

Outside; amid a crowd of supporters, chanting, singing and holding signs, Cecily's Attorney Martin Stolar said that Cecily is "relieved it wasn't two years."

He expects her to serve around 60 days with the time she's already done and good behavior. That said, he added, "She's not happy to be going back to Rikers Island." He said McMillan will appeal her conviction.

McMillan's support team issued a statement, saying, in part, "We all know Cecily did not receive a fair trial, and this case will be fought in the Court of Appeals."

They add, "The DA and the courts want to make an example of Cecily; to deter us, to scare us, to keep us out of the streets. And we won't let that happen. This ruling will not deter us, it will strengthen our resolve."   Village Voice Anna Merlan May 19 2014

democracynow.org - Occupy Wall Street activist Cecily McMillan suffered a seizure when New York City police officers pulled her from the crowd and arrested her as hundreds attempted to re-occupy Zuccotti Park on Saturday, to mark sixth months since the launch of the movement.

In her first television interview since her arrest, McMillan says she has decided to speak out because of an outpouring of public support. "I have received so many emails, Twitter messages and phone calls. People are just horrified about what happened to me."

McMillan has a black eye and her body is covered in bruises, at least one in the shape of a handprint. She says she was not allowed to contact an attorney while she was taken to the hospital and transferred to a jail cell along with some of the 72 other detained protesters.

♥For My Cousin Sharon Moos, One Of The Kindest People I Ever Knew♥

23rd Psalm

The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures, he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul, he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea; though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me. Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies, thou anointest my head with oil, my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

♥♥♥
Sharon; I Love You, Beautiful Soul.

I know that you are in Heaven. The entire family already there, is having a fabulous  party for you and God welcomes his own home.
