“Random Thoughts” – Bob Wire – M.C.C.

1) Sometimes I generalize, packing all staffers here at (MCC) in the same sardine can… Not fair, I know that… I find some staffers (including C.O.’s) very professional and pleasant! I thought I should note that fact. Even though they be of the P&P persuasion I would not chum with them or hold long conversations with them, but I spare them from my “wish they would die”

  1. Concerning my “wish they would die” list, I want to express in no uncertain terms, my list is not a bad thing, I am wishing that certain individuals have a chance to meet whatever God they serve (and soon) and for the unbeliever(s) on my list it is simply over, no more knowledge, just like there was no knowledge before life. Hey look at it this way if your on my WTWD list, you were likely a shit-bag to me, yet I wish the most for your visit to the afterlife… (I do not have a WTWD list (or do I?))
  2. What causes that little old man with the cane from dorm 5 or 6 nose too run in such long and gooey strains? And why does he wipe it on his jean, walls, railings food serving station?
  3. Why does that one server in the chow hall always put the oatmeal in the center slot of the food tray? Does he not know that the God-damned oatmeal goes in the FRONT LEFT (circular) SLOT???
  4. I think the kitchen staff sometimes freezes the fresh fruit? One is never to freeze one’s fresh fruit, because if one does, he winds up with the nasty, wilted, squished fruit we often get.
  5. The Holy Roman (Catholic) Church declared years ago that the faithful no longer have to eat fish every Friday. If our meal planners happen to be Catholic, could some one pass along the above message to them? If the meal planners happen to be Jewish, perhaps the every Friday fish fest is payback for the Spanish Inquisition.

“Pass the Coffee Please…” – Bob Wire – M.C.C.

The other night I had the pleasure of watching a show on NBS called “Billions Behind Bars.” As a criminal the preview of the show aroused my curiosity, despite the fact that I am continually dumbfounded that shows like Locked Up and Cops draws such interest from the incarcerated (gluttons for punishment I guess)! Any rate, and with that said there were some very interesting statistics about prisons in the United States. Take for example that the United States has more citizens incarcerated than China and Russia combined. The prison population in the states floats around 2.3 million, give or take the 30,000 or so illegal immigrants incarcerated along the boarder of the U.S. And Mexico. But that is not what I have come to talk (write) you about, nope! I have come to you about coffee or lack there of at Maine Correctional Center(MCC). It seems that in the “slash and hack” spending cuts imposed by his holiness the Commissioner, that coffee was one of the first items to attack the budget. In Billions Behind Bars it reported that U.S. Prison sell 2.5 Billion dollars worth of products made by inmates. Some of the inmates making these produces made as little as sixty cents a day. Here at MCC, God only knows what industries bring in on annual sales? Got Me! But that is not what I have come to talk (write) you about, nope! I have come to you about coffee or lack there of at Maine Correction Center (MCC). There are a fairly substantial number of inmates who work around the prison. Some work for free, others get a stipend (sixty cents an hour to start). Some men work in the laundry room cleaning shitty, in pissy, and cummyed clothing for eight hours a day or more. Can’t MCC or the God-damned DOC provide coffee for them/. (I just heard that the laundry found one case of coffee and they are livin’ the good life for a bit)… There are inmates that work in facilities, no coffee for them. What about the guys who work for free in the school or library, helping other inmates, instructing in classes, or tutoring? No More coffee for them. I may not be the brightest inmate in the world, but I bet my formally coffee stained teeth that if the DOC in general or MCC in particular stopped feeding CO’s and other staffers, they could save enough money to let hard-working inmates bath in coffee. Make no mistake about it inmates save the fucking DOC a shit-loads of money performing tasks that the DOC might otherwise have to pay with real world employment rates… JESUS, will they ever stop screwing the inmates? If you still don’t think inmates should get free coffee, see how many CO’s would work for free (without coffee of course) in the laundry, the school, the library, on the grounds or around the compound FOR FREE of 60 cent and HOUR…Finally, as if that above was enough I will more time dissecting some of Billion Behind Bars for your future reading pleasure…
