  • Gun shots ring out all times of the day. Makes me wonder how it was in the wild wild west . I was a gangster when I was younger . What save me from a early grave was training from a old criminal that loved me my UNCLE. He told me three things to never do. No gays, No needles,No snitching take your own weight GO TO JAIL OR GREATNESS ALONE.

    MR. MIKE VON BACH Your uncle was maybe from an era where he didn't have to tell you not to smoke crack cocaine or join ISIS.

    Also, how did/does your uncle feel about this fashion in AA youths to wear their pants below their butts?

  • My uncle was into being very well-dressed and well-groomed he would have never appreciated someone wearing their pants down below their butt line. In fact just yesterday I saw a young man wearing his pants hanging down he had on white underwear and they were Brown in the center . I was going to say something to him but I just guess he didn't know any better
