As you may know I am active in my community of Racine WI.
I speak at city meetings as well as worked on getting Urban Chickens going in this city, something tried in the past but failed, I however was able to make a deal that could not be refused 🙂 sorry I had too. Try working with the City Heath department was able to get the city to approve Chickens in this city.
I also created CATV shows for our CATV station and served on the City Cable Commission that ran the station.
I also do a Blog Racine In Ruins link below https://racineinruins.wordpress.com/
where I give my thoughts on the decline of the city of Racine
I am not liked my the city of Racine Good Old Boys.
Damn I got in Email an 85 page email on a city project called Machinery Row quite the issues from lack of accounting of money to what I can only call kick backs and God only knows.
So what do I do?
Thinking the best thing to do to help explain what is seen by many as corruption is write an E Book on this topic in hopes that by doing so I can show the light on what many rather seen not put in the light.
its wild to say the least
First let me clear in no way shape matter or form, should this be taken as an attack on law enforcement, who in a day to day bases deals with horrific events dealing with the world of drug abuse.
In my family for generations drug addiction has caused great pain, be it my being an alcoholic to other family members having issues with Pills to Heroin.
Living in Racine I see the effects of drugs in my area from crime to kids not having a dad/mom in the home anymore.
We know too is we spend a hell of a lot of money on this war
a quote “The U.S. federal government spent over $15 billion dollars in 2010 on the War on Drugs, at a rate of about $500 per second. State and local governments spent at least another 25 billion dollars” . Source: Jeffrey A. Miron & Kathrine Waldock: “The Budgetary Impact of Drug Prohibition,” 2010.
The above number has only grown.
That only in the USA: In Mexico over 160,000 have died. That is a high number, now at on time the killing in Mexico was going down, but that number is going back up. this year.
Here in the States issues from asset forfeiture to area “wire taps” have many questioning if the public is losing rights in this never ending war.
How much of the War on Drugs is simply a away to continue to fund the security state
All for what? Yankees have a huge craving for drugs, now with Cannabis becoming legal in more and more States at least Pot is no longer the driving force for the wars vs say Meth if that a benefit
Still this country needs to have a discussion on drugs a long and deep one and to have that now.
Sadly if we did the right folks would lose a great deal of money.
