What's up good people!?

Whats the difference between Donald Trump and the Hindenburg? 

One is a flaming nazi gas bag and the other is just an old blimp from the 40’s. 

What’s up good people? It’s been a few seasons since I’ve written anything so here is a small update about my happenings behind the gates of Vandalia “Correctional” Center. 

I’m coming up on 5 months left in prison of a 42 month sentence at 50%, followed by parole for some more time. I have been managing to stay busy, despite the lack of opportunity to do anything productive or mentally stimulating. I recently finished a horticulture culture class which cut my time in here by 2 months and I was able to get into another vocational class, building trades, which will knock off some more of the time I have left. 

Everyday I reflect on my actions of why I’m in here and day after day I do not regret them, despite the intentionally mundane helpless aura of thousands of people warehoused with little to do, my rebel heart burns happy and hot. With all of the amazing support from my friends and comrades on the outside, I can keep it real all by myself. I have plenty to read  and can better my understanding of revolutionary history and theory, an ironic privilege many don’t have time for in the “free” world. 

As I sit here doing prison time for the work that all white people should be doing to fight against systematic white supremacy, my message is to never give up the fight for a fair and just society. But time is running out, will we be coal burning dinosaurs in a war-torn world of deserts and dust? The answer to this question is found only in our actions. For now, I’ll be playing chess and strategizing, staying sucker free as can be in the gulag.
