Lesson Seventeen – He’s walking his cat on a leash. That’s child abuse.

People in the ghetto aren’t inherently stupid. Actually I’m not really sure what I mean by that. They are stupid. They wouldn’t be there forever if they were smart. The people you’re surrounded by are loooooow bred. They typically have no cares about mating with proper humans and it just perpetuates their borderline retardation. Then to add on top of that they drink a ton and do a lot of drugs and usually often from a very early age, preteen typically, which totally ruins their brain development in and of itself. Living in a poor stressful environment and going to shitty schools has plenty of negative effects on brain development without very early drug abuse.

Perfect example and will make sense of the title. I was walking my dog. A cocker spaniel. Very clearly a dog. And a group of youths walked past. I’d say around 14, white, somewhat gothic but gothic has sort of just turned to trashy and ghetto in modern times. One girl, very clearly on drugs, probably alcohol and marijuana says to her friends in shock but in a subdued Thorazine like state that “He’s walking his cat on a leash. That’s child abuse.” Her friends ignore it. And she says again angrily, “That’s child abuse.”

Now you cant get more unintelligent than that. She’s basically smart enough to understand that dogs are supposed to be on leashes not cats and a loosely based concept of abuse. Abuse wouldn’t extend to walking a cat on a leash. Some cats actually like it. Otherwise they’re not going to let you walk them at all. But she isn’t smart enough to understand the difference between a cocker spaniel and a cat. She also isn’t lucid enough to understand the difference between a pet and a human. She also isn’t lucid enough to understand that she’s projecting her feelings of being abused, which hopefully she was, and I mean that in the worst way, onto my dogcat Mosey the cocker spaniel.

The worst of her problems is that she’s abusing drugs and being in public at a very young age. Im sure if she wasn’t already pregnant some meth addicted sex offender did the deed while she was still young. She basically has no chance. And while cute and somewhat healthy at 14 she’ll look 40 when she’s 20 and be dead by 25. Thankfully the universe does have some counter measures to her type.


Lesson Thirteen – Trust

Be mean to people. No one is allowed to borrow anything. Everyone should know that your shit is yours and they risk everything to make it theirs. This isn’t the suburbs. Your neighbor borrowing something really means you giving it to them. Odds are they aren’t even your neighbor they’re just knocking on random doors. Years ago in the old west if you stole anything a band of vigilantes would come and shoot you and then hang you. Your property is everything in harsh environments. They know that. They don’t respect you asking for your stuff. That’s their first mistake.

You’re going to have property stolen. That’s a fact of life. You’re going to leave something somewhere and come back minutes later and it be gone. These people are like seagulls looking for a piece of bread. They’ll hang where you can’t see them and swoop down and be gone in an instant when you turn your back. That’s a fact of life in the ghetto. Anything not bolted down and protected by the business end of a firearm can and will be stolen. You’re going to want to use your neighbors children as clay pigeons because they steal from you but your only real course of action is to let it go. If they’re trying to rob you, i.e. steal from your person, in most states you have the right to defend yourself.

Girls will ask you for drugs after acting like they like you and want to get to know you. Or money. They don’t give a fuck about you. Opiate addicts care about one thing. All drug addicts care about one thing. And unless you are their drug of choice that one thing is not you. Don’t get fooled. You’re never getting borrowed money back. And that’s fine. Don’t give them money. And if you feel like being merciful today and do want to give them something don’t give them enough to make it worth their while to come back. 1-4 dollars. 5 is enough for them to come back. And try to do it in quarters. Something a drug dealer doesn’t want. Helpful but not helpful is your mantra when helping people.

Never ever let someone in a position of power over you. Never let someone in your car or house unless they’re close and you trust them totally. Never give a stranger a ride. He’s going to knife you and steal your car. He doesn’t care about getting far. Always assume everyone is going to try to kill you and steal your shit and get away with it.  You need to always be in the position of power.

Don’t trust anyone. DTA. Live by it. Say it to yourself every time someone wants anything from you. DTA, DTA, DTA, DTA.

Lesson Eleven – Credit

It’s very easy to get some credit in this country. If you have a job and a decent or empty credit history you can get some credit. Which is great. Its important to be able to have some money that simply isn’t yours that you can use in emergencies. Wealthy people have awesome credit cards and awesome credit rates. Credit companies basically pay them to use their credit cards. The reason is the desire for their business vs. the competition. They have to offer great deals and offer high credit lines and incredibly low interest rates. They will profit off the wealthy person, albeit not a ton, but they’ll make some money in the end.

Most Americans get terrible rates on credit cards. Because most Americans owe on credit cards. They cant pay them off, and when they do they typically owe money again almost immediately after. Credit companies make a ton of money off the average Joe. They don’t offer great deals they offer decent deals and at best a crappy interest.

You get the absolute worst deals. You get absolutely no incentives and very high interest rates. This should deter low income people from ever using credit.  The problem being is that most low income people don’t make enough money to survive. We rely on unreliable income and even get that in small amounts. If we want to buy our kids birthday presents or take them to Chuck E Cheese or whatever we typically have to put that on credit. Really anything not food and rent goes to credit. And we can never pay it off because we’re never making more money. Either the same money or less. Credit card companies LOVE this. They make so much money in the end. We pay more interest by a huge margin than money borrowed by the ends of our lives. Its a scam. And it helps keep the rich rich and the poor poor.

Again this goes to the entire mantra of staying alive in the ghetto. You, being an American, think, “Something should be done about that.” Yea absolutely. It’s hurting a ton of people and contributes to a below par lifestyle for a ton of people. But there are no champions of the poor. Poor people don’t vote. Even if they did no presidential nominee would ever combat real issues in this country. They make up issues like gay marriage that have no real intrinsic bearing on anything and use vague words like “Hope” to not tackle this stuff.

The only way to survive the ghetto is the same way you survive the desert. You accept that you are not in control of the environment and have absolutely no bearing in “the way things should be.” You just have to stick to your goals of staying fed and hydrated and getting the hell out of there. Learn humility, learn how things work, and make critical decisions. Don’t waste a minute or a dollar trying to change things. Don’t forget why you live in the ghetto in the first place. You have no value therefor your voice and opinion has no value. Accept it, own it, move on.

Lesson Ten – The Police

Police are not your friend. Never ever call them or have anything to do with them unless absolutely necessary. The only viable situation in which to call police is to prevent the death or kidnapping of you or someone you care about. If they are already dead or kidnapped, the police are no longer of value. That’s IT. Your involvement with the police ENDS THERE. NO EXCEPTIONS. Do not call the police for petty crimes. Do not report crimes unless you can do so absolutely and totally anonymously. And only in situations in which the police can catch people in the act and don’t need your testimony.

A man who fights dragons too much eventually becomes a dragon. A man who stares into the abyss long enough eventually becomes the abyss. No that’s not my original quote its Neitzsche. A cop who fights criminals for long enough becomes a criminal. A cop who stares into the evils of the world for long enough eventually becomes the evils of the world. Cops deal with the worst people day in an day out. Drug abusers, thieves, psychotically violent people, child abusers, and people who break traffic laws and don’t care and people who live off law breaking, etc. They deal with angry drunks and people with a non functional level of intelligence…just everyone. That crap rubs off on them.

Cops also have unchecked power. Only recently have cops started being charged with things like murder and manslaughter. And that’s only because they’ve been so abusive and terroristic that people want cameras put on them. And people know you can film an arrest and get a good viral video because after the cops put someone in handcuffs they’re going to tase and kick and punch the person. Its just what they do, its so consistent that they’ll break the law you can catch them easy. They make the news constantly all over the country with viral videos of them beating and shooting and abusing the living shit out of people. They do it so much that people expect it. Which is by definition terrorism.

Cops don’t care. They just don’t. They don’t give a fuck about you or your situation or anything. If they pull you over for a traffic violation killing you crosses their minds many times. They are very weary of people who pull guns on them or get violent. They expect it in every situation. That mindset of kill or be killed weighs on them big time. Eventually they will kill someone. And not totally unjustified. The people they kill are usually total scumbags. But they don’t often do it in self defense. They love to take out that frustration and anger and stress on people. In their minds the people deserve it. And typically they do. But deserving something and upholding laws conflict and the laws should always win. But they don’t. And just because the cop is dealing with you they typically assume that you’re the same scumbag that they always have to deal with. Even if you aren’t.

Not all cops are bad. Some genuinely care about their communities and don’t want to help contribute to a society of violence. But the road to hell is paved with good intentions. Even the good ones are humans with guns and power and a job that makes them immune to the law in a huge amount of situations. Cops came to my door with guns drawn and when I opened the door they pulled me out with a gun literally in my face and arrested me. They then went through my house and seized my property. Cops can do this. If they have a warrant. These cops didn’t. To the rest of us that’s aggravated assault, kidnapping, armed robbery and a breaking and entering. There was no way on earth a judge would have granted them a warrant based on the ramblings of a schizophrenic person. So they took it upon themselves.  And that’s cops. And that’s why you avoid them.

There’s no way you can win against cops. If they want you for anything there’s no getting away or convincing them that you’re not guilty or anything. The only thing you should ever say to an officer is “I plead the fifth”. Officers want your blood. And you’re giving it to them when you talk about situations. If you’re just getting a ticket you keep your hands on the wheel and say “Yes, sir” when he tells you you’re either getting a ticket or a warning. Never be condescending, never argue, never do anything. They are looking for an excuse. I’ve had a cop harass me for maybe 15 minutes, Im absolutely sure he wanted to see if he could piss me off and either shoot me or charge me with more crimes than an expired plate. He was very clearly fishing for more. An expired plate is nothing. In the great scheme of things it hurts no one, it does nothing, its just a fee that hasn’t been paid. Something like a ticket is the only reasonable response to something like an unpaid fee. To be screamed at and harassed and threatened is not reasonable. But…this is the police.

They are always looking for more. Petty crimes are petty crimes. They want someone to shoot. Someone to hit. Someone to drive their knee into while they are on the ground. They want that release. It makes them violent and dangerous and criminals. Like I said though there’s no way you can win against them. There are more of them than you. They have the best lawyers. The get an insane amount of preferential treatment by judges and jurors. No matter what you do they will always be human. They will always have to deal with horrible people and they will always become horrible people themselves. Avoiding them is the only successful strategy.

Lesson Eight – The people around you.

There’s no way you can write or catalog people that live in the hood without being incredibly racist sounding. Well its a scientifically proven fact that everyone is racist in the sense that we all have preferential logic towards our own race. So you’re racist. Im racist. Wait…are we using this word correctly? I don’t care about people that I don’t care about. If you’re not in my circle of friends and family I simply do not give a fuck about you. It definitely does not matter what your race is. So now that we’ve cleared that up, lets discuss.

“Thug” kids. These are the most dangerous, dumbest, worst people on the planet. Highly and I mean so incredibly highly susceptible to any type of affectation the media that they’re exposed to impresses upon them. They listen to music, watch shows, and hang out with people that want to be a certain way. This “thug” way. So they too want to be “thugs” and typically because in their lives they are exposed to NOTHING else this sticks so hard to them. No one ever asked them what they wanted to be when they grew up. No one ever cared about a career path and long term life plan for them and they didn’t even make it through high school. The only way to deal with this type of person is just to avoid them. Let them keep to themselves and the police. Every human seeks ways to be special and unique. And if this is the only way ever presented to them, while not special or unique, it’s a way of being something, they stick to it like a rat in a glue trap.

Drug abusers. These make up a very high percentage of people living in the ghetto. There are two classes. Functional and non functional. Functional can have jobs, even if for a little bit. Non functional typically cant hold jobs more than a day, if that, and find other way of making money or just getting drugs like theft. Theft is so huge. Theft of retailers like Best Buy or Wal-Mart pays for drug addiction in this country. If you don’t believe me you just don’t know any better. They steal. They steal so much so often and from so many different places that they can pay for drugs. They get cents on the dollar for what they steal and they can afford drugs. Drugs are cheap. If they steal a $200 GPS they can sell it super easy for $20-30 dollars. That buys a relatively small amount of drugs that will last them the day. Functional drug users, typically just alcoholics fit into this category, work for a living. You will be asked outright many times living in the ghetto if you have or know anyone that can get X or Y drugs by complete strangers. That’s normal. Just say, “No, sorry.”

Normal people. It’s hard to find normal people in the ghetto. If you do they’re typically just in a bad way. Or they never really cared about making money and having careers and were happy just doing whatever. There’s not really much to say about them. Other than that many people will seem normal and when you get to know them they fit into the drug abuser category.

Sex traders. Girls who sell sex and men who sell sex are highly dangerous. They have AIDS. They might not actually have AIDS. But assume they do. Don’t give in. Just keep telling yourself this person has deadly STD’s. Something like 1 in 5 men in this country who have sex with other men have HIV. And more than half of them don’t know it. Those are just men who have sex with men. That’s not even prostitutes. A gay prostitute absolutely has HIV or AIDS.

I can’t think of anyone else right now. That kind of fits everyone.

Lesson seven – Gun choices

If you live in the hood and you don’t have a gun you’re risking everything. Odds are if you have followed my rules you should be fine and never have to use it. If you present yourself as having nothing you should be fine. Typically people rob people like drug dealers because they have drugs and cash. They get robbed a ton.

Really its all about functionality versus cost. Its great if you have a concealed weapons permit and can carry a small pistol. Its great if you can afford all that. At the very least it will give you peace of mind.

In order to be robbed you must have something someone wants. If you’re in dirty work clothes you clearly have nothing anyone wants. They would assume you are as broke as them. Typically people need a very specific goal. I.e. so and so has 8lbs of marijuana an a few thousand in cash. That would make so and so a great target. They know exactly what he has, the risk/reward chart is super clear. They are incredibly unlikely to look at you and say oh he might have 1-50 dollars on him, might, and some maxed out credit cards, well Im gonna rob him anyways. That’s pretty much not going to happen. It can though if someone is desperate enough.

As far as gun choices its all about cost and functionality. There’s a movie and in it a guy who is a very serious gun enthusiast and he’s picked out the best gun through an obvious ton of research and he gloats and makes fun of everyone else’s weapons. He gets a gun drawn on him, some compact little foreign piece of crap, and talks some trash about it and draws his own gun. And talks about how great that is. Then the character with the crappy gun just shoots him a few times and he dies. By the crappy gun.

Point of the story is that it just has to shoot a bullet. A cheap 150 dollar used 9mm that works fine and an expensive 1200 dollar brand new .45 work the same. It’s just whoever shoots the other person first. It’s not warfare. It’s not long drawn out battles in which things like long range and long term use make a massive difference. It’s literally shooting someone at a very close range and getting away. People who don’t engage in combat don’t realize that the small nuances of a gun that make it special typically don’t matter. It’s about luck, speed, and the user’s proficiency. Something that draws quick, reliable, and 9mm or bigger…its very simple.

For everything else its all about small AR’s. The m4, the ar15, the ak47, the M1 carbine, etc. Short light and a good bullet. Solid weapons for every occasion and large magazine size. Very simple. Its very easy to get lost in the world of gun preferences. You can do research day and night. Its not going to save you if you don’t hear someone sneak up on you and shoot you in the back. The only thing that will save you is awareness and speed. Even then you face the legal issues of using a gun. If you got a little over zealous you’re quite fucked. It’s a last resort thing. You just have to try to pay attention to the situation.

Lesson six – Does anyone read this?

I mean actually read it? I hope not. Because today we’re going to talk about unscrupulous things. Things that make the hood the hood and make life there interesting. The first being ho’s. Street girls. Or not street girls. Sometimes stripper by day and hooker at night.

The first thing you should know about a lady of the night in modern times is that she’s a drug addict. She absolutely does some type of drug or many drugs way too much and with the quantity and persistence of a drug addict. The funny thing about drug addicts is they always die before getting off drugs so there’s no real way you can tell if it was a hobby or addiction. Im kidding, its obvious.

That being said if the internet, phone, or texting is used to contact this hooker you should know truth number two about hookers. Their pictures are always old. They’re always pre drug addiction. They’re going to look young and fit and healthy. In person you’re so lucky if they’re healthy. So lucky.

The third truth is that who they are is not who they are. People are people. Even actors keep many traits of being a human. Like wanting company, attention, affection, love, companionship, jealous, etc. Hookers are trying to get your money. They want love and affection just like everyone and they can tap into that and do and say things to suggest that they like you and want YOU. They don’t want you. You’re gross. They want your money. They never want anything but your money. If you think otherwise you’re going to be broke. If you think otherwise you SHOULD be broke. You didn’t deserve that money.

Drugs. Drugs are great and wonderful. Not really actually. People who think drugs are great and wonderful typically have a chemistry that needs or greatly benefits from drugs. A depressed person with nothing going on would get so incredibly much more out of smoking weed than a wealthy busy and successful man who had an employee drive him to work while he planned this weekends yacht party attended by many beautiful women while sitting in the back seat. Of his luxurious $400k Bentley. It’s the way of the world. An attraction to drugs is just a sign that you have no ounce of greatness in you. You can be like, “Oh what about Scarface, don’t you see my Scarface shirt?” That’s a fictional character you asshole. Pablo Escobar died with his pants half off shot in the back by a cop. His head guys decapitated in the streets. If you think you’re going to be anything in the drug business stop reading this, you failed.

That’s it for today. I have things to do.
