Christmas 2021 by Wayne T. Dowdy

Christmas 2021

For those who have followed me for years, please pardon my repeat of this blog from last year with a few modifications. Most everything remains the same, with COVID-19 still creating controversies and disrupting our lives.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all who celebrate the holidays!

Ice and snow settle across parts of the United States as Santa moves in to deliver gifts and toys to all of the good little boys and girls.

Naughty girls and boys get gifts, too, because Santa doesn’t want to be sued for discrimination and lose his reindeers and sled in court.

For me, I haven’t felt the Christmas spirit this year, even when it began to look a lot like Christmas before this day arrived, with Santa packing weapons to defend himself against those who wish to take his goodies. (See photos of Santa’s Anti-Terrorist Sled in linked blog posts.)

Gratitude

What I do feel is gratitude for my health, family and friends, and for having an opportunity to walk the streets or to get in my car to drive wherever I wish, or to go to the refrigerator to get anything I want to eat, at whatever time I chose.

My life changed a lot since I paid my publisher in 2015 to create this blog/website so that I could get my voice outside of the walls and rows of barbwire that held my body but couldn’t dampen my desire to succeed upon release. Today I write as a free man.

For my freedom, I fought many battles against demons and dragons and slayed them all, one at a time, until victory opened the doors on August 28, 2018.

I held my head up as I walked away, with no desire to ever return.

If you want five Free stocks from Webull, click the link below to open and fund an account with any amount before December 31, 2021. I will also receive free stocks for your participation in this special promotion.

Most of the free stocks Webull provided to me were under $11.00, most less than $5.00, but Free Stocks are still a spectacular deal just for opening and funding an account with $1.00 or more.


Years later, I sit at a computer writing blogs that I often send in to a select few inside the United States Federal Bureau of Prisons. My hope is to encourage and inspire others to change their life to become better men and to have a more fulfilling life, and so that if the day comes to walk out the doors, that they, too, will be able to live a life that does not include crime or behaviors that will put them back into prison or the graveyard.

Uh, oh, I hear Santa cruising the neighborhood so I need to get in bed and act like I am asleep so that he will stop and leave my presents because I have been really good this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

Check out these two older blog posts and you will see Santa’s High-Performance and Heavily Armed sled that will get him put in prison for life if the Feds catch up with him.

Life After Release-9

Antique Bowl Used to Prepare Meal After Work

Update: June 29, 2022: I’m adding podcasts to many of my blogs and when I do, the system may send it out as a new post. If so, please take a moment to listen to one of the podcasts and let me know what you think. Thank you!

My life after release includes the Bowl shown in the above photo. Just as that bowl traveled with me since I purchased it at the United States Federal Penitentiary (U.S.P.) in Leavenworth, Kansas in 1989, so do the memories associated with how I served decades of my life in a cage.

LIFE AFTER RELEASE

Two days ago, I made a Ramen Noodle soup in the bowl inside the comforts of the house in which I live, unlike how I did in the small prison cells of the huge federal prisons I lived (U.S.P. Leavenworth, KS; U.S.P. Atlanta, Atlanta, GA; U.S.P. Lompoc, Lompoc, CA; U.S.P. Pollock, Pollock, LA, and at the Federal Correctional Institution in Edgefield, SC)

As Christmas 2021 approaches, I remain grateful for the life I live today as a free man who tries to make a difference in the lives of others. I’ve always been one to leave a lasting impression in the minds of those I came in contact with but not always in a positive way, the difference now is that I don’t leave a bad taste in the memory banks of those I meet.

An Attitude of Gratitude

When the world refuses to act according to Wayne, I must stop and remember that things work according to God’s will for my life and then be grateful for all I have instead of sad for all I don’t have but want.

PERSONALLY: Because I used to live the life of a dope fiend and a thug, I harmed many people, even those I loved. Today I do not live in the same way and do not harm others, even those I may not like. Regardless of how I feel, I treat people with love and kindness, at least, in most cases.

However, if angered my words may not be nice, but I still refrain from causing physical pain by walking away. On most occasions, I walk away before using words with the intention of causing emotional pain. I’m far from perfect.

ALONG SPIRITUAL LINES: Thus far I’ve failed to achieve spiritual perfection but have progressed along spiritual lines throughout the two and a half decades of my new life that allows me to sit in front of this computer typing this blog.


Now I am working on providing more content for Life After Release on Quora.com. Please check it out and subscribe. I will provide free access in requested.

Affiliate Marketing and Promotional Content

Disclaimer: At no additional cost to you, I may receive a small commission for products and services purchased through this website. Paid commissions do not necessarily influence decisions to advertise or promote products or services. Nothing contained herein is intended to be financial advice, as I am not a financial adviser.

Another part of my life after release is trying to find a way to generate additional income. Unfortunately, my success with affiliate marketing is lacking.

One of the main reasons for my lack of success has been my failure to devote the necessary time and energy to succeed, as well as not using more advertising to get the word out about what I am promoting.

In the future I plan to get into flipping goods (buying and selling items on eBay, Poshmark, etc.), or to become an Amazon third party seller.

My main objective in anything I do is to remain focused on remaining a productive member of society instead of the cancer I was before I changed my life in 1995. If interested in learning more about the changes I made, please read The Price of Change, included in this book:

Conclusion

I will conclude with the following temporary promotion that I hope you will decide to accept before it expires, and a link to other blogs I have written as part of my Life After Release, uncaged and coming to you live as a free American citizen and proud to say so, even though I do not agree with American politics.

Don’t miss the following Webull promotion that expires on December 23, 2021. Creating an account gets you one free stock and depositing as little as $1.00 gets four more, and then you can do as I am doing: promoting to earn free stocks. ๐Ÿ™‚

The linked article at the end of this blog to Yahoo.com Finance presents strong evidence about the presence and growth of cryptocurrencies around the world.

Several financial institutions have been investigating how to implement cryptocurrency to plan for what is to come, ready or not (I’m not writing about that aspect of Crypto).

The Digital World continues to expand with the Metaverse plans into the future, where trillions of dollars will be made as people venture into a virtual world. In anticipation of the Metaverse, companies like Facebook/Meta will lead the way into the new world.

Cryptocurrencies will play a large role in the Metaverse as payment plans and numerous other necessary functions for something so vast that most of our minds cannot grasp its magnitude.

Censored Again

Once again my content was censored on Quora.com, which may ultimately be reversed by the Quora moderation team. Sometimes submissions with links are rejected, but for me, personally, I do not see any reason to post the whole article when a link will do; however, Quora wants readers to stay on their website. Personally, my objective in writing is to inform readers or simply to express my opinion or beliefs, as I did in response to the following question, my censored answer of which you may read below. ๐Ÿ™‚

Why are there more prisons in America?

Wayne T. Dowdy, Lived inside American Prisons for Decades

“In my opinion, because America has more laws that makes many acts criminal that other countries do not send their citizens to prison for violating; therefore, to warehouse the โ€œcriminalsโ€ more prisons are needed.

“Prison privatization companies push legislation to build more prisons and to keep such policies into effect. Read The Truth About Incarceration, Part II for more on prison privatization in America. Please read the sources used for the article that are identified in the footnotes.”
