Contacts California Weed Connections

 The Song “The Consumer” By: Stackz Gotti

On Tuesday 2 November 2010, elections day in California they vote on Proposition 19.  Whatever the case for political analysts they will legalize Marijuana and help change and save the world on President Obama’s term in office.

 

I need to know how much the staff sells for; it should be plentiful all over the country.  You figure Crips and Bloods will transport all over the Nation to help save the California economy.    Florida just legalized same sex adoptions and is becoming more liberal.  With a new influx of Puerto Ricans educated at the age of about 24 to 45 at a number of 700,000 and counting, elections will have a New York City influence.  Weed will be legal in Florida in less than 2 years by special elections.

 

I want to go into the marijuana business and have a Federal Felony conviction.  My concern is we who fought to legalize weed by selling it even when it was illegal, not me but you know, will be excluded from the legal marijuana trade.

 

Crips and Bloods will profit on the short run by trafficking weed nationwide out of LA.  This will be ignored in California law enforcement making it possible to conceal it before getting on the road with weed.  For example people in fruit and other trucking related industries will move large packages of weed out of California by nature of the legalized drug itself.

 

My concern is that Pall Mall and Newport’s will conquer the longevity of the trade unless we grow our own weed in marijuana plantations legally.  People like Ice T and Snoop Dogg must purchase land to plant weed in the future, or do it now legally or the law is oppressive to the black man’s long term adjustment to the legalization.

 

That said tell me about the marijuana industry.

 

 

A NCNCHINC Editorial: Legalized Marijuana in California influence on Other States

 

A NCNCHINC Editorial: Legalized Marijuana in California influence on Other States

 

If Marijuana is legalized in California how will it influence laws in the state of Florida?  If a person is not on any form of travel restrictions, he would have the right to travel to California to purchase marijuana legally and consume it.  Certain agencies would have to lift there ban of services to people for positive urine traces of marijuana.  Because as a Florida citizen I have the right to travel to California without a passport and enjoy the legal activities of that state and therefore it must be presumed that I legally travelled to the state to consume these legal drugs.

 

If California legalizes marijuana can a state or city government of another state deprive their employees the rights of a US citizen to smoke marijuana in California? This will be a major question of law that may have to be answered by the Supreme Court.  For example, supposed I am a Correctional Officer in the state of Florida and off duty I purchase marijuana from the local pot dealer and smoke it.  Then 20 days later I take a urinalysis and am found positive for THC?  Can they fire me?  I would think not, because it is legal to smoke in California and who’s to say I did not visit California to smoke weed.  This is a requirement of the law, because a person has to be assumed innocent until proven guilty.  And a person who is not on travel restrictions should not be required to produce travel records and who’s to say I did not travel by car, if I just came off for 10 days vacation?

 

Therefore legalization of Marijuana in the state of California makes it legal to have dirty urine nationwide to all government agencies and employees, but not legal to possess.  If a person is not caught red handed it has to be acknowledged they did not commit a crime.

 

I think if it is legalized in California, states like Florida will have not choice but to legalize it also.  Because everybody will smoke it if they choose to anyway, knowing there will be no legal ramifications unless caught in the possession of the cannabis.

Gambino Moving in New Direction

Gambino Moving in New Direction

 

I might be under the RADAR for a few weeks, however do not be alarmed.  First of all, I want to thank Zimbio.com and the many celebrities and other public figures for carrying my posts.  As you know I use WordPress to present my blogs to the World Wide Web.  It is all good and fine, but by using WordPress it is almost impossible to profit from my work.  As I enjoy sharing my ideas and thoughts I also have to eat as well, so I find it imperative to move into another direction.  So it will be possible to attract advertisement dollars, I may well have to purchase a web site.

 

I will probably close down most of my WordPress accounts, other than Frank Paul Gambino @ WordPress, but give it a .com extension.  Then of course I have to design the new web site after setting it up with a few articles out of my WordPress accounts.   I will probably write an article or two per week on WordPress, but my focus will be on my new web site.

 

If my new projects get half of the support I have received on WordPress it promises to be a huge success.

 

Other things on the plate, in this new direction taking place are that, we did a feasibility evaluation on our business plan.  We zeroed in on what we think will be doable and profitable in our pursuit to be helpful in the black community.  There are promising things that will come out of the NCNCHINC.  It is too soon to promote the ideas as our board has to come to a consensus.

 

So with the soon to be release of NaQuila album, the new Capstone Zulu project going into full swing, the organization structuring of NCNCHINC and business planning and the new web site and design, I have to slow down on the blogs, which I think is a wise decision because my future at WordPress may be limited to an article once or twice a week anyway.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Paul

The Avon Park Southside Community Redevelopment Area Dilemma

The Avon Park Southside Community Redevelopment Area Dilemma

 

I realize people need to have recreation and be allowed to let off steam.  When I was younger I partied and it was fun to me, however became my greatest misery.  It was a privilege extended to me from the generations before me and shouldn’t be extended to this generation by all. 

 

I was sent here on a mission and by a promise made to Worshipful Master Eston Roberts to do community work and to help revive the economy first in the black community than in all communities and then the nation.  This is my promise to the Nation and the White House and President Obama.

 

People here wonder who I am and what I am about.  I’m a servant of the Lord, far from stupid or am I crazy.  I walked the road of the oppressed by choice and understand the hardships of the underserved, for I am one of them. The bottom line is I have been through the ringer, because the direction of my life was preordained.

 

I travelled for 33 years, since I was 17 years old.  And the Lord and the nation sent me here.  What is about to happen here will be a template for the Nation to follow?  Avon Park does not realized it has been blessed, by my presence and the attention it will receive around the nation and the world as a result of my being here on a mission from God and by the Nation of Made Men.

 

Important people are watching us.  As I may have a vision I was taught that a prophet’s vision can only be realized by the actions of the people.  The people of the times make’s the vision of the prophet happen and not the other way around contrary to popular belief.  I may well be the Grand Architect or Chief Engineer, but my ability to manufacture a final product depends on the staff and technicians.

 

All to say, millions of dollars is trying to ride thru here and important people want these good things to happen in this area. Operations from the White House to the Gambino Family, from Oprah to  Eric Holder to past Presidents such as George W, Bush and Bill Clinton to the support of the Crips are unified in this mission, because the success of this mission holds a key to a better America.  That said who am I?  I am the real Paul Castellano, now do your homework.  I am Gambino!

 

I call on the scattered Dolphins and those who love the Lord to come together not in fear knowing the Lord is with you and the highest authorities of Mankind also.  Support the operation to revive our community and put an end of self oppression.  Understand that oppression is privilege however reparation is our right to succeed.   Please help us help us and you too.

Non Profit Community Can Stimulate Black’s Economy

Non Profit Community Can Stimulate Black’s Economy

 

We all know that working in the non profit sector is no get rich scheme. Often you work longer hours and earn less pay in the non profit sector.  Just like a for profit organization a non profit organization has to turn a buck to be economically feasible and sustainable.  The reward in the non profit sector is that often you can do something you enjoy doing that is fulfilling in your life.  It is a great opportunity to help people.

 

A lot of non profit organizations however are losing their 503 c 3 status, because they are not properly filling out their tax returns.  This is sad that it is happening at a time when more people than ever need the help of the non profit sector.

 

What is the real difference between the non profit organization and a for profit corporation?  The real difference between for profit and non profit is how the money earned from the corporations is paid out to the people. This is beyond the scope of this article.

 

Understanding that we live in a consumer driven economy and the black community is the underserved and underdogs of America.  An interdependent black community can be an essential part of the rebuilding of America’s economy.  We at the National Community Network and Coalition of Highlands, INC (NCNCHINC) believe that a dead economy is economics not in motion.  People are not working because consumer spending is down, because people are not working.  It is a catch 22!  If we as a community put people back in motion, people will be able to spend more and it would put people back to work. What is work?  It is the inclusion into the labor force for compensation.

 

The only way the black community is going to rebound from the economic crisis, which is a depression among blacks is to recycle.  When I say recycle I am talking about moving money within the community and keeping it in the community as long as necessary to produce more revenue.  How can this be done?

 

We have to have a community business plan incentive.  Everyone cannot be a beer jug joint or drug dealer.  We need essential business institutions to sustain our economic stability.  We need a grocery store with food in it. We need our own laundry mate.  We need within the community a hair solon and barbershop that also sells hair supplies.  We need entrepreneurs to step up and sell vegetables on stands daily in some of our vacant lots and compensate the land owners for the use of his property; they too have to pay taxes.  We need black media to define our black people.  We need restaurants so we can stop handing our money to McDonald’s and the Illuminati.  We need affordable housing and daycare. I can go on but the article will never end.  The Honorable Rev. Frank Paul Jones says we need us to take back our community and stop the oppression of our own people for crumbs. 

 

We need eat the meat, through non profit leadership!

Business Incubators – Local Economic Development & the SBDC

 

Business incubators are a way to help both the non profit sector and entrepreneurs, develop a stronger business community here in Avon Park.  I will not pretend to know all the ins and outs of this business arrangement as it was made aware to me in a brainstorm session with the SBDC with David Noel.  However it is a serious thing to consider, both for the non profit and for profit business ventures.

 

In Highlands County the Local Economic Development Organization is the Highlands County Economic Commission. The Highlands County Economic Commission and the Small Business Development Center here in Highlands County has partnered together to create a one stop shopping situation.  Anyway this is my understanding of the arrangement. 

 

David Noel of the SBDC offered to visit the black community to assist in helping push forward “Operation Revive Black Businesses.”  An agenda initiated by Rev. Frank Paul Jones and the NCNCHINC.  Black business owners, entrepreneurs with a dream to have their own business, property owners in the business district and concerned citizens are being called to this meeting to take place on Delaney Avenue.   The actual, venue, date and time is now tentative at the moment, as the NCNCHINC is on David Noel’s calendar for a another meeting.  However the place of the meeting is not written in stone.

 

As it stands the next meeting will be at the office of David Noel, however he wants to visit the district ASAP to better understand the needs of the community, so the NCNCHINC is in the process of arranging for him to come to our side of town on this date to be announced in the near future. 

Rev. Jones & the NCNCHINC the Avon Park Community’s Springboard

Rev. Jones & the NCNCHINC the Avon Park Community’s Springboard

 

What started out as a project to startup one non profit organization called the National Community Network and Coalition of Highlands, INC has become a community project says David Noel Certified Business Annalist from the Small Business Development Center (SBDC) who is funded by the SBA.  While the NCNCHINC remains the catalyst of the structuring movement, it has become all inclusive.   

Rev. Frank Paul Jones the President of the NCNCHINC who is the facilitator in this movement for change says if everyone who needs help in this business district is not included in the development plan, we at the NCNCHINC in actuality really gains very little, it is about community growth.  David Noel of the SBDC plans to come to this development district as a result of an invitation from Rev. Jones   to survey the area to get a better idea of what can be done to revive the businesses in the area.  The time and place of the meeting is tentative as it is being organized by officers of the NCNCHINC.

 

As so much is about to happen in the Avon Park area, which will result in higher real estate values for property owners.  As new roads are on the calendar and are planned to be paved in the area, benches. parks and new affordable housing projects are already funded and about to go into effect in Avon Park.  Now with “Operation Revive Black Businesses,” actually in effect we at the NCNCHINC see light at the end of the tunnel and hopes for a better community.

 

Rev. Jones a strong critic of the black churches in the community says he loves them, as he loves all people, but sometimes it is a tough love.  Knowing when to pick a battle is so important, as Rev. Jones admits to sometimes being outspoken, by saying inappropriate things at times.  “I know I am not a very good orator, nor was the most significant teacher of the gentiles,” says Rev. Jones, “however I write with an iron hand and it sometimes gets me in trouble with the establishment and the community at large.” “However people should know I am a stand up guy and often very selfless in my actions and Operation Revive Black Businesses is proof of that.”

 

However Rev. Jones proclaiming himself as the Apostle Paul in the new millennium, says “all my life was basically a living hell, as I am a slave to black folk causes and so unappreciated.”  Once asked “but what have you ever done for the black community?”  And his sincere response was “I suffered almost all of my life.” When redundantly asked the same question he responded, “What more has a man to give?”  “I could have had wealth in abundance but I chose to walk the path of the oppressed, underserved, the sick and suffering only to ask myself today, why I suffered for such ungrateful ignorant fools.”  As he walk away he said, “That is what I mean by tough love.”

Florida Right to work State without Jobs creates crimes

Florida Right to work State without Jobs creates crimes

 

Right to Work States: Florida

The right of persons to work shall not be denied or abridged on account of membership or non-membership in any labor union or labor organization. The right of employees, by and through a labor organization, to bargain collectively shall not be denied or abridged. Public employees shall not have the right to strike. (Constitution Amended by General Election, 1944; Revised by General Election November 5, 1968)

Florida is ranked 5th highest unemployment rate in the whole country and is at 11.7 in May 2010, which is well above the National average which is 9.7.  Meanwhile Florida has the second highest mortgage foreclosure rate in the country, which is three times the national average.  Yet we live in a right to work state which is defined as a right to live.  

 

However, in Highlands County, Florida the unemployment rate among blacks is above the national average, but this is not the case for white citizens which a far below the national average at about 4%.  So the right to work and right to live in Florida are not helping black people here in Florida or Highlands County.  Is this a form of racial discrimination first in the educational system, that is designed to warehouse black children and then in the workforce whereby they are not qualified for employment later or should it be said are not as competitive as their white counterparts?

 

In Florida nearly one in four high school student’s dropout of high school and in Highlands County the rate is a higher at about 33%.   This is higher than the national average of about 30%.  However for black children the high school dropout rate in Florida is about 35%.  These statistics are not accurate, because many black children in Florida and especially in Highlands County dropout prior to high school and are not even counted as high school dropouts.

 

Florida nearly doubled its prison population over the last 15 years.  Here in Florida the rate of crime is near 23% higher than the national average. It has about 90,000 inmates in about 121 facilities are about $20,000 per inmate.    Florida spends less on housing the inmates compared to the national average, simply by cutting costs on their correctional officers, which is another example of the right to live without a living wage in Florida.

 

So what is the correlation between the lack of work, the lack of living wages, the high mortgage foreclosure rates, the weak educational system and crime?  Can it be the right to work without a living wage in the state of Florida, which creates these oppressive situations?  What do you think?  Is this socialism in disguise?

On June 11, 2010 $70.00 was debited from my account for a pair of Ed Hardy boots from Fashion House Apparel.  Marcus Goggins who claims to be the CEO of the company assured me that the correct size and item would be sent out to me 5 days after the order.  I received what appeared to be the Ed Hardy boots on June 15, 2010 but they weren’t the correct size.

I tried to contact Fashion House Apparel by phone, voicemail, and email only to get no response for the first week after the purchase was made.  Once I was able to talk to Marcus I told him that I would be sending the boots that were never worn back and once again he confirmed that he had the correct size and would send them to me when he received the wrong size from me.

On June 22, 2010 I sent the Ed Hardy boots back to Fashion House Apparel with a Delivery Confirmation receipt.  The boots only took 3 days to arrive in Lake City, Florida.  Once I knew that the shoes were in Fashion House Apparel possession I called Marcus to see when he was sending the correct boots.  He said that the shoes should arrive in 4 days, the shoes haven’t arrived yet and it is the 7th of July.

On June 29, 2010 I was able to get a response from Fashion House Apparel saying, “Hello Naquila,
   Are you talking about Ed Hardy shoes? I have a tracking number for your shoes that are on there way here, it has been in the same pplace for 2 days now, I wrote an email, I will keep you posted.”
Thanks,
Fashion House
