An Easter Gift and writing an E-Book

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

 

 

More shows!

My thought is to post each new Podcast within a day or so to prevent a huge backlog that then gets put up all at once.

here are the last few.

My thanks to my guests and all who take the time to hear them

We have Gerry Jenkins Host of Gangland Empire

Its an offer to help crime authors the publicity they need to have the best opportunities to max out on book sales

War on Drugs an aside

war-on-drugs

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.

 

Book Review You Gotta Be Dirty by Micheal Groan

Our first review is the book You Gotta Be Dirty by Micheal Groan

Published 2016 by Badger Wordsmith, LLC Marinette, WI

190 pp with index.

I received this book late last week and at once I began to read it.

Grabbed my attention right off and found it hard to put down, very fascinating  story of the Outlaws MC in the State of Wisconsin and near by areas focusing in and around the city of Milwaukee.

Mr. Grogan carefully lays out not only the History of the Outlaws MC, but how other events of the time impacted not only events that the Club dealt but the politcal environment  within the City of Milwaukee Leadership and the Milwaukee Police Department.

Case in point as I knew growing up in Madison of the American Indian Movement with events leading up to the murders of FBI Agents Ron Williams, Jack Coler. and how the Outlaws MC may have been connected with the killings.

I knew growing up during the time written of in this book, I had read newspaper stories, can recall TV news reports, however I had no idea how wide range of criminal acts members of the Outlaws were engaged in nor the wide range of crimes involved.

The book does end with how the Outlaws MC was brought to justice and the fate of many with in the court system.

Mr. Grogan, also is clear in saying that groups like the Outlaws still exist and even the Outlaws MS may rise again, but for now…

This reader found this book well written, a joy to read.

The author goes into detail on use of FOIA, with some of the issues in researching this book.

The research was very well done with use of end notes, so the reader may themselves do their own research on this subject plus have an understanding of the hard work Mr. Grogan did in writing this book.

There is an Index to proper names

This book be a great book to get if you are interested in Cycle gangs make a great gift for someone who is as well.

This book is available on Amazon.
