lets see…I grew up inner city Bridgeport, Ct., the only white kid in my class; the son of a dedicated,hard working father(crane operator in a steel mill), and a lazy, bitchy, spendthrift mother(now deceased 13 years).We didn’t have much,thanks to mom’s gambling habit and dad’s unwillingness to do anything about it.
I am a father, son, brother, uncle, nephew, friend, and lover.
I am a juggalo(for an explanation,b mail me)
I have been hooked on freebase, and more recently crack.
I met my soul mate @ 20 years ago in Baton Rouge, but left her after 1.5 years to return to Ct.(see my journal)
i started writing poetry in the 17 years we were apart(things were very bad throughout this span of time)
We are back together now, and getting married in Aug. ’10
here’s the view on myspace:
I’m a straight up juggalo.I grew up inner city Bridgeport, Ct.; the only white kid in my class ‘till 7th grade(not an easy life in the 70’s).I had to pretty much fight my way thru grade school.I learned most of my life lessons in that short time; like how to tell a real friend from a user, how to smell a fight before it starts, how to end a fight with no harm to myself(thanks to self taught jujitsu, ti kwon do, and ninjitsu, not to mention good old fashioned street fighting),and, most importantly, how to get along with anyone from any walk of life by simply finding common ground.I will not alienate someone at the whim of others;I will, however, happily kill or die in a heartbeat for anyone that I consider family(no, they don’t have to be blood),If they are actually affronted(not just insulted by some crack dealer, or pissed at someone who is sick of being used); some of my family has had to learn this the hard way.I believe in taking the bad with the good in stride, and learning from all my experiences.I believe all things happen for a reason, even if that reason is never revealed to me.I believe in God for lack of a better term, but I believe organized religion to be a self ingratiating, self perpetuating waste of time, effort, and money.I believe in equal rights for all, but despise the elements of society that have taken this to mean they can take my rights from me; EQUAL MEANS JUST THAT, EQUAL!!!.I try to respect all life, but find myself more disheartened by humanity as a whole every day.I am sick of the emasculation of America by groups of women that no man wants anyway.I am sick of the flood of low priced illegal immigrants wrecking the job market and the economy.I am sick of stupid/ignorant people breeding indiscriminately and flooding our health-care/welfare/education/court systems. I believe that natural selection says “The stupid ones get dead” for a reason; and the fact that our government has created laws to protect the stupid and persecute the intelligent is a huge part of this problem.
