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

the studio.

 

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

CONTROL.

 

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

steps.

the very angry,

Tarla
