This morning I went in to work expecting to be busting ass all day on
this piece for the Muncie Museum. It's due Wednesday. Instead, Paul
told me that until these charges are cleared up...he can't have me in
Yes kids, I get ACCUSED of a crime, and I get fired because Paul is
afraid that the University might try to use that against him in some
way. He said if it was his own private studio, it wouldn't be a
problem. But because it's on the University Campus, he's afraid there
will be repercussions against the Sculpture department, that his
contract might be in danger if I'm convicted at some future date and
he knew I was accused of a crime and still let me work with him.
THIS IS HOW THEY WIN. THIS IS HOW THEY KEEP US SILENT AND UNDER
They make us fear the loss of everything we love, and need. The work
was all that kept me sane. I wanted to be honest with Paul, let him
know my situation and how unfair it all was. For my honesty, I am
repaid with the loss of the thing I love most after my family.
You and I are kept silent, non-political, and under control by the
fear of losing everything, anything. We fear the loss of our jobs, our
homes, and our possessions. We fear the loss of our freedom and
because we FEAR that loss, we lose it anyway. We are not free to tell
the truth about what we do, or how we feel because speaking freely can
hurt us. The State controls our speech with its constant veiled
threat. We are a nation of fearful hypocrites.
I will not be a hypocrite. I will not lie about my life. I am not
ashamed of ANYTHING I do. I harm NO ONE. Even if I were guilty of the
things I am accused of, who is harmed? Not a single person can say
that I have hurt them. I've taken no money, caused no injury. Yet the
police feel that they have a right to break into my home, take my
personal property, take away my liberty, take away my work, and make
me fearful of them for the rest of my life.
Somewhere it HAS to stop. Sometime we have to stop being afraid. We
have to STOP LYING. It is the lies that keep us under their thumbs. If
every person who smokes marijuana were to openly admit what they do,
if they took no shame in their behavior, if they demanded without fear
that the State stay in its place...this could not continue. Fully 60%
of the people in prison at this time are there for drug charges.
That's not right, people. You know it and I know it. But we are so
fearful that they will come after US, that we dare not speak out
against this injustice.
The State of Oklahoma has just pissed off the WRONG redhead. Give me
five years and I SWEAR I will smoke a doobie on the State Capital
