My novel has been seriously mis-understood, mainly due to my ass-backwards method of book describing.  My novel, Murphy Blue, is a cat murder mystery novel, a beast fighting man type of thing.  There’s also a little side story about some poor bastard who gets convicted of murder and dances the death row shake, rattle, and roll.

Society has evolved into a prison state. The poor, the unwanted, and the great unwashables are put out of sight. The true predatory criminals are usually not caught. They are too smart. This system is set up in favor of the great white collar criminal, a badge of honor in these United States. If there is no specific law against a thing, money can be made from it until the barn doors are nailed shut.

When the young go to prison, they are impressionable and still learning. If there is no organized method, learning will be sought by whatever means. The brain is programmed to constantly take new information and organize it, make it fit into the changing landscape.

The anti-drug stance of the United States costs big bucks.  And the underground economy brings in big bucks, with no tax liability at all.  It is difficult to sympathize with a country that spends so very much on a drug war that was obviously lost long ago, and one whose economy is upside down.  Not only is this anti-drug money being spent in huge amounts, year after year, also huge amounts of taxes are not being collected or paid out on the marijuana industry alone.

Sixteen out of fifty states plus the District of Columbia have legalized medical marijuana. It is a progressive notion, at once frightening and witchy. Nonetheless, the feds keep making raids and laying down the law, the federal law. Law is a precious thing, full of rights and honor, whether lacking in common sense or not.  Also apparently, federal law is more potent than state law. How dare those state lawmakers think they can out-law the federal government?

This prison state is a huge private club, and one whose members rarely leave. They are firstly branded as convicts, criminals, or excons. Their rights are stripped away, their freedom is gone, and not just the freedom to walk away from prison, but the freedom to live any kind of traditional, normal life. It is a clear and convincing intent by the federal government to remove certain of society’s undesirables on a permanent basis.
