Joe dibuduo’s Published Books

I have been working hard as a writer. Though I have published about 20 books/and stories, I have yet to earn much money. If I got paid by the hour for writing, I’d be a rich man!
Sure hope 2018 will be a good year.

Will History Repeat Itself?

Today is the celebration day for when in 1605 police foiled the so-called Gunpowder Plot by seizing Guy Fawkes before he could blow up the English Parliament.

 

Many people have worn a Guy Fawkes Mask during the occupy, and other anti-government and anti-establishment protests around the world.

 

I wonder how many knew who he was and what he stood for.

 

For those, like me, who didn’t know why, the reason for his attempt to do it was because of among other efforts to quash Catholicism, was the British authorities had suggested that Catholics be required to wear red hats in public.

 

Repeats!

 

In the 11th Century, the Islamic world mandated that two yellow badges had to be worn by non-Muslims, (Christians,) and for Jews,  one on the headgear and one on the neck. Furthermore, each Jew must hang round his neck a piece of lead with the word Dhimmi on it. He also has to wear a belt round his waist. The women have to wear one red and one black shoe and have a small bell on their necks or shoes.

 

In largely Catholic Medieval Europe Jews and Muslims were required to wear distinguishable clothing in some periods.

 

So it wasn’t original thinking when the Nazis required Jews to wear a yellow star.

 

 

I’m wondering when we in the U.S. are going to require immigrants and/or Muslims to wear identifying attire. Don’t think it can’t happen as the ruling class has deemed it necessary throughout history. Am I wrong? I don’t know, what do you think?

 

Vietnam

http://www.pbs.org/kenburns/the-vietnam-war/watch/

I lived through these times and like most people I had my own opinions. After watching this, I see every opinion I had was biased or wrong.

The documentary points out how our veterans were brave, and even the ant-war protestors and those who fled to Canada were brave by doing what they believed in, right or wrong.

It shows the North and South Vietnamese fought bravely as did the Viet Cong. I may be confused because my belief system has been rattled, but it seems the only ones who weren’t brave were many American politicians. Not many stood up for their beliefs. To see how they treated us Americans, and their supposed allies is goddamn sickening.

I believe every American should watch this to see how so few can fuck up the world. Democrat or Republican, it doesn’t seem to make a difference.

Get real TRUMP, Dump Tom Marino, and appoint Joe Rannazzisi Drug Czar !

Again, Trump wants to put the fox in charge of the henhouse!

I’m a poet and know it

Sold another of my poetry books last week. Haven;t sold many, but now and then someone buys one, So I actually make a few bucks off of my poetry, That makes me a professional poet!

 

Sold three of these last week too. Been selling a few every week for ten years now.

Paybacks??????????

I had just gotten three dollars in quarters as change from a copy machine. I usually don’t give money to beggars as I figure they probably have more money than me, but in this instance, I felt the kid was telling the truth and stopped to give him the change. The window on the passenger side of my car hadn’t worked for months. I tried everything I knew to fix it but was unsuccessful. I thought I pressed the button for my rear right side window but pressed the one for the passenger window instead. When it rolled down and I handed the change to the kid I wondered if I was being repaid for doing a good deed. Where did the power come from to open my window?

UPCOMING – SPRING 2017 —- T h e – C o n t e s t

Inspired by the works of international artists, this Young Adult / New Adult collection of dark fantasy, slipstream, magical realism and fabulist tales (with a connecting novella) is collaboratively authored by Joe DiBuduo and Kate Robinson:

 

Peter John Rizzo, an emerging creative writer and 1960 graduate of Yale University’s journalism program, inherits Classic Art Exposé, an established but floundering art journal, from his uncle, John Rizzo.

 

Pete’s father, Peter Rizzo, is a banker who hates his late brother, jealous of his sibling’s influential relationship with his wife and Pete, and scornful of his work in the Arts and Humanities.

 

Pete and Jason, his Uncle John’s devoted but unorthodox editorial assistant, and two local English student interns, sisters Shirley and Evie, start a monthly short story contest with artwork prompts, hoping to increase Classic Art Exposé’s readership and settle its debt.

 

As the short stories are vetted and published over the following eighteen months, Pete discovers a sordid family secret as he battles his father’s nefarious attempts to jeopardize his business and ruin his reputation.
