A bit about the Saint
From Front Line story read the full story here
The much shorter version
…The story of Jesus Malverde takes place during the reign of dictator Porfirio Diaz (1877-1911). The Porfiriato, as the era is known, was a time when big business, especially foreign-owned big business, was encouraged above all else. Diaz saw himself as the rest of the world saw him: as Mexico’s modernizer. Yet progress passed by millions of Mexicans, who remained as impoverished as ever. As the century turned, the country fermented with the social anarchy that would explode in the Mexican Revolution. The hills and back roads of Mexico were alive with banditry, some of whom would become folk heroes to the country’s poor.
The legend is that Jesus Malverde was one of these, a bandit who rode the hills near Culiacan. They say Malverde robbed from the rich and gave to the poor. A Mexican Robin Hood. It must have been true, for they say the government hung him and left him to rot in a tree. That was on May 3, 1909. Every year on that day there’s a great party at Malverde’s shrine….
Some say he is just a made up Saint co oped by Drug Dealers.
As I see things He is far far more then that
Many things have not worked out for the Great Hemp Tour few wanted Shirts Few cared about the Podcast
I dropped the hour format since I made clear that the Great Hemp Tour was going to fund itself and with no T shirt Sales the Hour Blog Talk Show had to go.
I kept the Hosting since the package for hosting was cheep plus I can use it for other projects so I kept it.
Was more then ready just to walk away from the Great Hemp tour since the only idea most waned was a focus on the 420 smoking Weed vs my idea on Hemp being the use for Fuel Food and Fiber.
I also had the great displeasure of dealing with a few scammer types some pitching stocks they had salted, some “writer” wanted to do a story on me if I paid $2500 (wait, what?) and more, Yes sir the Hemp is just like the Gold Rush even like the early days of the Railroad booms and just as full of Con men
Yes, I was frustrated, unhappy, and mega bitter.
Time goes on…
Found my old Jesús Malverde Charm I had bought a few years ago got out some Wine made a request for guidance, thinking what the hell, then this morning more Wine and some Chocolate.
Followed all this up after watcing a badly done show on the Sueside Girls this question;
Do these go together: Hemp, Lucha (as Lucha Underground) Pin ups 50’s 60’s Crime and Hot Rods?
The answer I got back was a big YES!
I can live with themes, I can live with Hemp of all types (and I know it will be more Smoking then anything) with the other parts of the theme, Know I can link them in many ways in writing about them doing A News type Web Show keeping to them
Say seeing what the Hemp World might be like in Milwaukee and a Strip Club or two
Stories on Pin Ups past and present be cool the whole 9 yards.
I was worried Am still that my Addiction issues creep up and in after quitting drinking , knowing how many of my kin did not deal so well I hate to lose to addiction I have no plans at all to smoke any at all
Planning to keep this interesting lets see what happens
