In this realm of déjà vu my name is Frank the Jew.  Along for this intellectual shtick is my pal Bacon. 

According to my psychotherapist, Bacon is six foot tall, two hundred pounds, four legged imaginary friend who resembles a piece of hickory smoked bacon.

Oy friggin, very, that’s the craziest thing I've ever heard.  Yeah right, IMAGINARY!

Bacon and I met running numbers on the hard streets of West Chicago.  Bacon, my savory button man, helped elevate my rank among the Turn Junction Outfit.

If the Main Street store owners found the chutzpah to kvetch, bacon broke their shanks.  If the Grand lake neighbor’s got loud, Bacon shot on their porch. 

If the Reedkepler degenerates didn’t have our shekels, Bacon threw them in a pen.

We finally got stopped between lettuce and a tomato in Oregon doing forever and a day.

Lately, Bacon’s been acting so salty cause of his conservative views, he has my cholesterol up.  This greasy idiot is such a staunch Trump supporter, he has the same haircut.


Again…when we raped and murdered helpless Native Americans?


When women were just play things?

America will be great, but only through progress.

Bacon and I have dedicated our blog, IDEOLOGUE, to help rezone our arguments by providing the sketchy kvetchy platform to discuss political and social issues.

OY friggin’ Vey, GET OFF OF ME!  Sorry, Bacon just ran in.



FTJ:  The conservative views on gun control are going to kill our children.

Bacon:  Wassamatter wit ya Liberals, anything seems possible when ya dunno ya butt from ya brains.

FTJ:  I realize using guns to kill in war in necessary, but we don’t need guns on our streets.

Bacon:  Puleaze…Y’see our country is gonna burn in hell from deez liberals.  Americans need guns.

FTJ:  Gun Nut Conservatives will ruin our soon to be great country.

Bacon:  Hand’em spineless Liberals out GREAT country, we’ll be gay and gunless.


Send us your opinions on our Sketchy Kvetchy discussion to our favorite schmuck Brian.

OY friggin, very, GET OUT OF MY FRIGGIN’ LEG!  Sorry, Bacon’s acting like Trump again.

Settle down, it’s me Brian. Come join our discussion platform.  No hurry, it’s just two people and a piece of bacon waiting on you.

Hey! To anyone considering writing, please know that I will respond to every letter received. If you write and do not receive a timely reply, it’s because prison staff failed to forward your communication – a too common problem, frustratingly. So, should you write and not hear back from me, please try again, for it would be sadly uncool if the opportunity for us to be friends was lost.

One of the most dispiriting aspects of ongoing confinement I’ve discovered – in addition to the more obvious and immediate losses like family and old friends – is lack of relevance. It didn’t occur to me so much until having my “contraband” cell phone, or perhaps after it was confiscated, that being relevant in society and participating in the activities of the free world is quite missed. If only I could be around and interact with good people again, I would never cease to appreciate it. Normally I manage not to dwell on that particular loss.

Fortunately, the prospect of true, meaningful friendship just over the horizon alleviates most negatives – in incarcerated life or free. Very little is more rewarding or fulfilling than two people lifting each other up; providing each other with something to look forward to each day; sharing kind words, laughter and occasionally tears; and virtually guaranteeing the absence of loneliness. Maybe this will be the catalyst that introduces us to a lifetime of priceless friendship.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Take it easy.

Respectfully, it is crucial for taxpaying voters, to be involved with the trends and practices within the Prison Systems-Medical Services section.  It is presumed bad form, to speak up for inmates incarcerated, but the truth is; without support from citizens, inmates with health problems could become a risk to the public health and safety upon release.

Each state’s budget appropriations committee in the Senate and House of Representatives fund the prison system money to care for the needs of incarcerated individuals, this money comes from the taxpaying voters, it’s the purpose of taxes.  When states failure to monitor and regulate their prison system for waste and misappropriations of services and funds, it is injurious to all parties involved.

When inmates reproductive Health Care matters go untreated, for male inmates prostate health screening is important, among other related care, similarly situated, a female inmates gynecology care is important.  For various cancers going untreated could lead to death of the patient and while incarcerated measures could be taken to solve the problem.

Suppose a Prisons Medical Services, abandoned the care of an inmate with such cancer; due to his release date was less than a year away – for this often does happen.  Suppose this same inmates condition became worse and upon release sought care, but for his sickness was unable to manage a stable job - thus had to rely on other state services; and its respective cost to the taxpaying voter.  Does it seem fair to either party involved?

As you’ve read in my profile, I am humble, laid back and most definitely a country boy! I’m a very family oriented man and am blessed that my family has stuck with me through the worst things you could go through. They have never given up on me, even during the times in the past when it would have been easier for them to give up. The things I’ve experienced in life have taught me that sometimes you have to go through the bad times to truly appreciate the good times and believe me, no matter how bad things may be, it could always be worse. I do my best to keep my attitude in check. I’m not a criminal and I’m not a “bad guy” but I have made some serious mistakes in the past that I have learned from and have to live with.

I have focused all my time and effort toward changing my life, taking every class and program available to me for self-help and improvement. I take that change seriously because my future depends on it. To be honest, I am looking for that “special someone” to build a promising friendship with during these last months of my incarceration with the intention of a lasting relationship outside of here. I am extremely loyal and brutally honest. Hoping to find someone who can see past my tough exterior to see my heart of gold and give me a chance at the future.

In A Dream

Yo – Yo – Yo…

There’s nights I dream of a chic I never seen nor met, feel me???  The type of dream that feel real as hell, know I’m saying???  Everytime this dreams change doing something different everytime.  Some nights we walk the ocean side holding hands, other times she looks into my eyes seductively flirting with each other, naaa mean???  Feeling so right so good when we’re together, you hearing this????  You know….like the true essence of that soulmate I seek within and wake up feeling peaceful, positive and complete, sometimes find myself hugging my pillow, see what I’m saying???  I never met a chic who makes me feel that way, only through these dreams I’m able to experience the magical sensation of been with that significant other, you know????  So I’m trusting with all my heart that she exists and is out there, even opened an ad on Love A expressing my heart to her where ever she may be at, feel me???? In my dreams there’s no drama, jealousy or arguments.  She’s calm, patient, relaxed, understanding and freaky, you hearing me??   Some nights I ask the universe to allow destiny to bring her into my life, see I’m saying???  I realized there’s a subliminal message in these dreams, that chemistry and the spiritual connection is more powerful than the thickness of these prison walls, you heard???   Our soul cannot be imprisoned, feel me???

Strong Passion

Yo what’s good?

It’s late night and I’m watching the Jimmy Fallon show, know what I’m talking about???  So dig this, the performing artist is Kesha and starts singing this song  “Praying”, feel me???  At the beginning of the song I wasn’t feeling her but then she started to express this strong conviction and passion that I felt deep in my soul, naaa saying???  I start feeling her pain throughout her singing, finding myself thinking like Dang…. whoever made her write this song mistreated her, feel me????  So it made me think deeper, realizing that some men could make a woman feel broken and bitter, this made me feel angry within, I went to sleep with this on mind.  So days went by and I realized further that some men are selfish and childish, naaa saying???  So I reflected on these revelations and concluded that I wouldn’t make a woman feel that way, you heard????  Instead I’d rather help a woman feel stronger, happier, fulfilled and complete.  Uplifting and encouraging her with all my might.  Be her teammate, friend, boyfriend, lover and dude all at once, naaa mean????  I’m a tough man here in prison and live amongst the coldest, feel me????  But I’m considerate to a woman’s heart and feelings, so I’m more understanding and laid back at this stage of experience, see I’m saying???  This makes me different than the average man, feel me????

Real & Mature

Yo – Yo – Yo…

Wut up bee?  Check this…

I be peeping many dudes out on these TV shows (Married at First Sight, Love and Hip Hop) acting silly, talking like they looking for love, you know, but they ain’t ready.  Feel me??  You see they start behaving immature, insecure and childish, see aaa saying ??? Wanna start arguments and competing with they chics, you know…. Putting them down and sheet…  It takes a real to understand the ladies and know how to treat a woman, naaa saying???  Most of these young men ain’t there mentally, they lack self-discipline and control, unable to keep their emotions in check, while a mature man like myself is more patient and understanding to women.  Feeling me?  So check this, I know all ladies go through a lot and most men now days are not considerate to you, you dig???  I’m not perfect at all, I have flaws too, I’m a convicted felon who talks mad in here every time I don’t get mail, pictures, visits, naaa saying???   but I’m relaxed mostly no arguments, fights, drama, see saying????  I learned to value and glorify women after many years of imprisonment, as you heard before “you never know what you got till it’s gone”.  So if you’re ready for the real deal get at yo boy, feel me???  No need to search elsewhere, lift your pen and write today, send pictures and phone number.  Peace!!!

Hello I am excited to see what this opportunity brings my way. I have gotten you here so let me tell you about myself and bring you some cheer. I really enjoy the out doors, I love to hunt and fish, work out, play softball. Traveling around and seeing other places has always been a passion of mine, and very adventurous. I never meant to stop at this vacation resort. I love to listen to all kinds of music but I prefer Country and R&B the most. When I get excited I am known to cut a rug and dance a little gig. I have two lovely children that I miss greatly ( a 8 year old son and a 5 year old little girl). I decided to give this a try as my friend has had some success on here. I am looking for a friendly connection that would like to share stories about life and help me ease my loneliness in my current situation. If you would like to contact me at using my name Jason C Smith and my inmate # 1392943. I look forward to putting a smile on your face, even being in this unthinkable place. Everyone needs a friend don't make me wait till the end.

Deep Thoughts

Stay true to who you are because when your down and hoping to find hope in this hopeless world we live in, what you give is what you’re given.  Sometimes your journey will get dark but stay true to you and see it through… I guarantee you in the end, you’ll see a brighter you.  Dedication is the key to living your best life and there’s no days off…I know it sounds a little painful but it pays off.

I was always told by my Grandfather, “The only man who never makes a mistake is the one who never does anything, and you never lived until you’ve experienced love”.  His message to me was never give up and chase your dreams, no matter how many mistakes you make along the way.  But money and success alone won’t bring you happiness.  Love is what makes you happy.  Family is the bricks, and love is the mortar that holds the bricks together. We all know there’s sides of love, because what makes you smile could also make you cry.  So ladies, please understand this- God made Eve for Adam’s rib to signify that a woman’s place is at a man’s side.  She was not made from his spine, so it was not intended for her to be behind him when they walk through life.  Nor was she made from his feet, so it’s not his place to walk over her.  So please know your place in life because only together can you achieve anything in life, because a woman will always make her man better.  If there on the same page and working as partners in life with her standing strong by his side and he’s man enough to listen when she informs him on her intuition. So know your place and power is the first step to finding love and respect and I wish you the best in your pursuit of happiness.
