BUSINESS PLANNING

In my profile I mentioned my experiences and interests. I’ve combined those elements while developing a Business Plan for a Sports Bar and Grill. My dream, my goal for this project is to eventually expand into multiple locations and become tied into all major and college events and become a major venue in the neighborhood where we are located. My idea for this business plan is in honor of my parents who have supported me throughout my incarceration, and who continue to do so. I want them and the entire food industry to know that I am proud, greatful and very appreciative for their love and support these past 18 years. I’ve invested a lot of time into this business plan; even spending years developing the name and ideas that will set my restaurant apart and above the competition. I’ll specialize in unique and authentic Mexican, Tex-Mex and fusion style cooked foods. As a graduate of The Art Institute of Houston, I learned a lot about cooking techniques, flavoring, culture, some menu planning and some aspects of business planning. Since my incarceration I’ve followed up with my studies via Stratford’s Career Institute, taking correspondence courses in: Accounting, Cooking and Catering, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Start your own Business and with Wedding Consulting courses; t incorporate with my talents, business ideas and life-long goals. If you’re interested in discussing ideas like this, I hope you write me. I’d love to openly discuss ideas and getting to know you. Thanks.

WHAT HAPPENED TO RTL?

WHAT HAPPEN TO RTL? Respect….Trust…..and Loyalty!! Where are you? Why did you remove your true meaning from this generation? Is it me or does it seem the past 20 years RTL has vanished away from American society? There was a time when respect was honored among peers. Trust was an embedded emotion that everyone took pride to have and committed to be known as trustworthy. Loyalty was the fruit of life. This culture, this society, this generation has eliminated RTL for their life. Greed, money, and self-immoral has taken over the human mind of today. Sacred used to be kept (trust). Sticking by a friends side “no matter what” was honorable (loyalty). Money couldn’t convince a person to sell their soul (self-respect). Today’s generation no long cares about the fundamentals or facts of life. It’s all about one’s self! Living by wisdom, knowledge or moral beliefs is unethical now. How did we get to this point as humans? Where did it all go wrong? Sometimes I blame myself for not speaking up and spreading the knowledge I have conducted. However, seven some of the methods and philosophy and beliefs are unrighteous; but the foundation will stand on RTL. So who’s to blame? Things are getting worse. R.T.L. makes leaders…with no leaders America will fall. A friend once told me “The human life has changed….being loyalty is rare! Trustworthy is extinct! Respect has died! That’s why R.T.L. has vanished”. Ced

OUTSIDE THESE WALLS

I was reading my profile after getting it back and it seemed kind of bland. I’ve got a very good sense of humor. I love laughing and having a good time. I make the best of the life that I live and want to find a friend who can share and help create some new good times. My favorite color is red. If I could be any animal, I would be a bald eagle because they are beautiful, powerful and when you see one, you’ll never forget that moment. Just like me, when you get to know me, you’ll never forget me! I’m very outgoing and like to see people smile. I like to be the reason you smile. So if you want to smile and start a good-hearted friendship with no ulterior motives, I’m that person. At my facility we’re on a 20-hour lockdown so I’ve got nothing but time to write and draw. I want to be taken outside these walls and be in a place of happiness if even for a few moments. Are you the person to give me those few moments? I know I can be the person to put a smile on your face and give you something to look forward to when you open your mailbox. So, give me a chance and drop me a line. What is the price of a stamp or two and a few moments of your time to have a chance at friendship?!

STRENGTH IN STRUGGLES

My struggles have strengthened me and despite my current situation, I still persevere because I believe better days will come. I’m mentally in a positive place and consider myself to be a humble, thinking man who is passionate about everything that I do. I stay focused on my goals and know that I can achieve my dreams with a lot of hard work and dedication. No matter how many times you get knocked down, you must keep getting up. Because if you stay down, you have been defeated. No matter what you’ve been through, you can always start over. I learn a lesson from every experience. I believe that just because you fail, you are not a failure if you’re learning. Because when you learn you grow. I’m at a point in my life where I’m more mature and wiser and ready to celebrate life. There are people who don’t seem to value life and freedom anymore. The world is a sick place and it’s getting crazier each day with all of the killings, shootings, and unnecessary violence. Like the Connecticut shootings….why would anyone want to hurt a precious, innocent child?? I have been locked away in a small cell and treated like an animal, but instead of being angry and bitter, I have become more focused and ambitious and I don’t allow myself to be consumed by unproductive thoughts. Set yourself up for success, not failure. Surround yourself with the right people who have your best interest at heart. Use all obstacles as motivation.

REGRETS

REGRETS: I sit here staring at these 4 walls and the waves of regrets and mistakes hit me like a heavyweights punch. I knew this was possibility when I was out there using drugs and associating with the wrong people. But never realized it until it was too late. Now I’m facing a lifetime behind these walls, not knowing whether I’ll get another chance at freedom. While I was out there using drugs I had so many second chances and made more broken promises to myself and my loved ones that I care to remember. But I kept lying to myself that I could handle and control the drugs this time. Every time I made some positive progress in my life I let my addiction tell me it was gonna be different this time and before I knew it all the progress I made was gone and I was back in that evil cycle. How do I make up for the pain and heartache I’ve left in my wake? I must live with those regrets every day and pray that one day I’m given a chance to ask their forgiveness. My advice is to never get started. It always started innocently enough but it always leads to stronger and more dangerous drugs. If you’re already using or know someone that’s using, please encourage them to seek help because I’ve been there and I couldn’t do it alone. There is no shame in asking for help. Drugs have cost me my life.

PROGRESSING

It’s been some time since my last blog. Since then I’ve grown more spiritually. I also joined a beautiful program training puppies for disabled Americans, just to give back in a small way for the sins of my youth. These animals are so beautiful, they live in the here and now, not dwelling on yesterday nor stressing about tomorrow. We can learn so much from them, they are unconditional while we are driven by conditions. I also graduated computer classes so I’m no longer computer illiterate. Also, I’m yet to hear from anybody local. Well I’m continuing my journey through life and willing to hear from other people’s journey’s moments of gladness, short comings. I’m willing to hear. Amidst this hectic world people have lost the ability to hear and relate, as well to care. I’ll be turning 41 in June and I’m hoping this blog will at least get me a birthday card. I feel well for my age, if Brad Pitt can look good in his 40’s anyone can, but looks are overrated. I offer and seek substance. I’ll await your contact & hopefully a friendship to go with it.

CRAZY POLITICS

Hey everyone. Lately in the news there’s been some crazy stuff going on. Hot topics if you will. Here’s my take on a few. Hit me back with your spin. Illegal immigration---I wish Obama and the rest of the powers that be would stop wasting time. They should legalize the 11 million already over here. It ain’t like their going anywhere anyways right? On top of that, they need to figure out an effective method to allow foreigners quicker routes to American citizenship. If that were in place they wouldn’t have to cross over illegally. If bothers me that we as a country we whine about this but never seem to do anything about it. I’m all for others wanting to come over here. Americas great. However if their criminals you shouldn’t be allowed. They need to contribute the way we do. Question I have is. Why when they cross and make money over here, don’t they want to go back? It seems like they should want to. Next topic---gays in America. Go ahead and legalize it. Everyone deserves the rights they want. Honestly though even though I’m for them getting their rights I’m against the lifestyle. I believe it hurts the structure of family. A child needs a man and a woman. Also I don’t believe people are born gay. It’s a choice. People turn gay in prison all the time. They weren’t born gay, they choose it.

RAW LAW

Raw Law Anyone who knows anything about law understand: “in order to maintain a criminal conviction of any kind here in the U.S.A. the state or opposing party must prove every element of crime therein beyond a reasonable doubt. To maintain a conviction without proving the elements required is a violation of the 5th & 14th Amendment Rights of the U.S. Constitution ( See Inre V. Winship, 397 U.S. 358) (1970) In every case, trial by jury. The jury is issued a set of instructions rendered by the Trial Court. The instruction embodies the elements of crime which defines the charge a defendant is convicted. In the case of Quincy D Bailey v. Commonwealth, the jury rendered their verdict in verdict Form # 1(A) Stating: “We the jury find the defendant, Quincy D Bailey guilty of Murder under instruction #4” /s/Jury Foreperson. Instruction #4 defines the elements of First Degree Manslaughter issued in Quincy’s case, not murder. It is a patent Constitutional violation of the above mentioned rights for a trial court of any kind to maintain a conviction for “murder” where murder is defined by the elements of manslaughter under instruction….,A manifestation of injustice. Our forefathers of the U.S. afforded Constituents rights mandated by the constitution for a reason. To protect citizens from such contingencies. Here Quincy is a born citizen of the U.S.A. based on his verdict, conviction and lengthy sentence, Quincy’s rights are being violated due to incarceration. Being that “(A) jury speaks only through its verdict.” (See Yeager v. U.S. 129 S ct 2360) (June 18, 2009) Quincy has a “life” sentence (Quincy was sentenced as if the jury found him guilty of Instruction #3, not 4) for a charge of murder defined by lesser instruction, definition, & element of crime, one that carries only 10 YEARS…BIG DIFFERENCE!!! It’s not Quincy’s intentions to manipulate the United States judicial system, but only to receive justice due. Anyone who believes in maintaining equal rights of any person in America & the world, no matter race, gender, political, social or economic status. Your opinion, assistance resources and (or) friendship is always in of great need. “An injustice anywhere is an injustice everywhere.” --Dr Martin Luther King Jr For a more in depth understanding- information, transcripts, trial tapes or legal documents, feel free to contact Quincy anytime.

A lot of people don’t understand what its like to be locked up. You can read or look at all the TV shows/Documentaries about prison but you’ll never be able to relate. They only show you the bad and the troubles but always leave out the struggles and the good we manage to obtain while we’re locked up. Do they tell you how they try their best to send us to the farthest prisons from home? I’ve never seen them show how nasty the food is? How they make us work for free? How they really have enough staff to run recreation, so never do? It’s crazy, but we find a way to keep our head up. People have different ways to do that, I’m trying to do it by letting my mind leave this place for a little bit through a pen and paper and a friend but how can I do that without that friend? Sometimes I reach out but can’t grab nothing but when I do I never know if it’s a friend or someone trying to act like one. It’s hard to find a friend to keep but doesn’t stop me from trying. They gave a word limit of (250) words but it doesn’t take (250) words to keep it real, so if you’re out there and looking for a true friend, I’m not too hard to find. GOD Bless you.

In life, and in our hardest moments, and in times when we feel so vulnerable and desperate, we reach for a friend because true friendship will persevere. That is the friendship that I long for. Few things in life are as valuable as knowing that your friend stands by your side. I’ve done wrong in my life, obviously, but I don’t want to be remembered solely on the past mistakes that I’ve made. I want to be there for someone that needs a friend. I want to help someone out of the dark place in their life and be their glimmer of sunshine. Just as they would be mine. Tomorrow is promised to nobody so why do we always expect one? I’m right here, wanting to be the shoulder for you to lean on when life keeps serving lemons. We can make lemonade together. Do you ever wonder what’s all out in the universe? Or think to yourself, “What’s the purpose of it all”? I don’t know what all the world and universe has to offer but I am a firm believer there is a purpose and reason for everything. Even when it’s beyond our comprehension. In this constant confinement of this cell, there is ample time to think and write and I would like to share these with you and talk about what you’re interested in. The End
