Na Ga Hick and Redneck Mystic discuss how to praise God and be viewed as crazy

A couple of days ago, a north Georgia buddy sent a message from God via Facebook messenger. My buddy claims he was born and raised in Montgomery, Alabama, attended the University of Alabama, met and married a Birmingham, socialite and ended up becoming a member of the upper crust Birmingham Country Club, until a divorce ended that chapter and set him on his journey, which wended its wonky way through Atlanta, then into north Georgia, where he hit his stride and eventually met a pretty gal who said she would marry him but she was not going to live in his trailer. The rest of the story perhaps is for another time, other than to say, after I met him in north Georgia, in mid-2001, we quickly became good friends, and sometimes he referred to himself in correspondence as Na Ga Hick:
Redneck Mystic replied:
I wonder, amigo, if God authored it through a person, or a person authored it without God's input? I wonder, there is a whole lot of praising God in Christendom's churches, it went on a lot in your nearby Methodist church, it goes on a lot in Muslim and Jewish churches. However, my experience is where the rubber really meets the road with God is how people live. If they live in keeping with God's ways, that praises God. If they give God credit for their station, instead of, like Nebuchadnezzar did, claim credit for themselves, that praises God. If they are grateful to God for what they have, that praises God. If they live as Jesus lived and taught, that praises God. But if they praise God, but behave as if they never heard of God, or of Jesus, is that a bit perilous? As Jesus' brother James wrote in one of his letters in the New Testament: Ask him not about his faith, but look to his works and there see his faith.

Na Ga Hick:
I believe firmly it is about how we live and faith that praises God and let’s us feel God and the Holy Spirit working in our lives. God bless you my dear friend!

Redneck Mystic:
Got to thinking, amigo, of all the times I was accused of being crazy for talking about God, angels and demons, yet such talk is heard pretty much every Sunday in Christian churches. Have my civil rights been violated? Heh.

Na Ga Hick:
Now would be a good time for your legal background to kick in. My layman’s opinion is that since you showed symptoms there of and suffered no damages as a result of, there is no probable cause to pursue such action!

Redneck Mystic:
I suppose it might not have helped my defense, if I said I thought my accusers were out of touch with reality and they were who was crazy.

Na Ga Hick:
Only if you hired a lawyer that had a PhD in psychology and you could claim you were Silas Mariner !

Redneck Mystic:
Alas, every psychologist I met seemed out of touch with reality, as I understood it, so I'd be left representing myself. Okay with that in God's courtroom, not so much in human courts and forums. Heh.

Na Ga Hick:
Do ink block test and let that be Exhibit A. And I will raise my “left” hand and swear under oath to my opinion of your sanity as I am an expert on you and the matter as you have lived with me and I have off and on been in psychotherapy for 40 years!

Redneck Mystic:
My writings are my ink blot test, tens of thousands of pages. God is who decides if I am crazy. But then, when I lived in Boulder, Colorado, I published a little book called A CRAZY PERSON PERSON'S BIBLE. I had maybe 2,000 copies printed in all. Put them out in a box at Pearl Street Mall for anyone to take for free. They all disappeared. Most of it came to me spontaneously, word at a time. One little piece was something like: 
Although he tries to love God, he has a hard time doing it because all of the crazy things God puts him through, and all the crazy things God asks him to do, such as love people who aren't nice to him. Thus he concluded, the only way to love God is to be crazy!

God and lawn care: God to St. Francis

Sancho Panza forwarded this down below, which needs to be pondered planet-wide, as well as by Key West and the Florida Keys, where real estate development has been king since the larger fresh water pipeline from the mainland was installed in 1982. The old water pipeline was maxed out, no new construction could tap into it.


Frank ,  You know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there on the planet?  What happened to the dandelions, violets, milkweeds and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect no-maintenance garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abandon. The nectar from the long-lasting blossoms attracts butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast garden of colors by now. But, all I see are these green rectangles.

It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling your flowers 'weeds' and went to Great lengths to kill them and replace them with grass.

Grass? But, it's so boring. It's not colorful. It doesn't attract butterflies, birds and bees; only grubs and sod worms. It's sensitive to temperatures. Do these 
Suburbanites really want all that grass growing there?

Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn.

The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy.

Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it-sometimes twice a week.

They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay?

Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags.

They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it?

No, Sir, just the opposite. They pay to throw it away.

Now, let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow. And, when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away?

Yes, Sir.

These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work.

You aren't going to believe this, Lord. When the grass stops growing so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it, so they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it.

What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn, they fall to the ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes. It's a natural cycle of life.

You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have them hauled away.

No!? What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter to keep the soil moist and loose?

After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves.

And where do they get this mulch?

They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch.

Enough! I don't want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you're in charge of the arts. What movie have you scheduled for us tonight?

'Dumb and Dumber', Lord. It's a story about....

Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis

waterfront developer friendly Florida Fish & Wildlife Capt. David DiPrie shoots Key West houseboater several times after he posted on Facebook and told Fish & Wildlife headquarters in Tallahassee that he would kill himself if Fish & Wildlife in Key West didn't stop trying to take his home away from him

Arnaud and Naja Girard, publishers of Key West the Newspaper, dropped yet another nuke on paradise pretend yesterday, which I kinda doubt is winning Oscars nominations from Florida Fish & Wildlife. 

Go directly to THE BLUE PAPER


Below the video are various juicy reader comments.

Not in the video is Fish & Wildlife is prosecuting Arnaud Girard for a derelict vessel, which is no more derelict than your automobile sitting unattended on public land. Arnaud is challenging the definition of derelict vessel in a state court declaratory action lawsuit he filed pro se in circuit court, in Key West. Formerly a lawyer in France, Arnaud does not practice law in America and cannot legally represent other people. Yet, the outcome of his declaratory action will affect every liveaboard boater in the Florida Keys. 

Here is my comment under the video at the blue paper website. 

Sloan Bashinsky
When I spoke on the phone this morning with a homeless woman friend in Key West, she said she was unable to sleep last night, because she felt the presence of enormous Evil around her and all over Key West. She thought some of it had to do with Fantasy Fest, but it seemed much larger.

I reminded her of the Tree House murder-by-stabbing case recently broken by the blue paper, in which the Monroe County Sheriff Department, the Monroe County State Attorney Office, and the state court circuit judge presiding over the case are prosecuting a right-handed homeless man, even though they know the stabber was left-handed.

I told her that I had dreamed last night of Pritam Singh, a mega-real estate developer in Key West and the Florida Keys, and of the new blue paper video, “FWL Captain (David DiPrie) shoots live aboard boater”, and that it has been my impression that F&W has been in cahoots with local real estate developers. My friend only has a flip phone, so I told her to try to find someone with a smart phone, type in and bring up the video and watch it.

This being Sunday, it wouldn’t surprise me if Florida Fish & Wildlife Capt. David DiPrie and other state F & W officers in the Florida Keys, attended church today, and they actually believe what they do to live aboard boaters, who are not docked at and pay rent to city or county-owned marinas, is God’s work, blessed by their homeless savior, Jesus, who is reported in the Gospels to have said, “As you sow, so shall you reap.”

It also won’t surprise me if the unarmed live aboard boater DiPrie shot 4 times, does not turn the other cheek, but sues DePrie and F & W for enough money to buy a nice yacht and pay its crew for many years, and DePrie and F & W swear on a stack of Bibles that DePrie either acted in self-defense, or he was trying to stop the live aboard boater from killing himself, because he was been terrorized by F & W.

Twice before, the blue paper busted DiPrie. As did I, to State Attorney Dennis Ward.

The first bust came after DePrie starred in a video produced by the Bernstein family, who claimed to own Wisteria Island, which the blue paper challenged by convincing the U.S. Bureau of Land Management that the U.S. Government owned Wisteria, which dispute ended up in federal court and BLM prevailed, so far.

However, that future was not known when DiPrie starred in the video promoting the Bernsteins being allowed to turn Wisteria Island into Sunset Key Deux. When I told State Attorney Dennis Ward about the video, Ward said DiPrie ought not to have done that. Later, Ward told me he spoke to DiPrie, or with DiPrie’s superior officer about it, and DiPrie was admonished not to do anything like that again.

The second bust came after DePrie doctored a Wisteria Island trespass arrest, by including in the case file a no-trespassing sign from the other side of the island, to prove the accused knew he could not be in the island. The accused’s defense was there was no no-trespassing sign on the side of the island where he landed his boat. Florida law required a trespassing sign to be there, and he did not know he could not be there.

When I spoke with Ward, his chief prosecutor, Mark Wilson, and DiPrie about that on the telephone, with the three of them in Ward’s office, in Key West, DiPrie said the no-trespassing sign photo in the case file was was a scrivener’s error, he did not mean to put it in the file. I said I didn’t believe him. Ward said he believed DiPrie. I told Ward he should prosecute DePrie for evidence tampering. Ward said he believed DiPrie.

As for the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), the blue paper proved beyond a shadow of a doubt in the Charles Emiers murder in Key West Police Department custody case, that FDLE’s mission is to protect wayward law enforcement officer, including wayward KWPD and FDLE officers. The blue paper also proved beyond a shadow of the doubt than the State Attorney Office, Dennis Ward was not the State Attorney then, was no different from FDLE in the Charles Eimers case.

As for Fantasy Fest, the most evil thing, by far, I ever saw going on there, was religious fanatics shouting and waving posters saying everyone else there would die and burn in hell forever. Key West police officers nearby allowed the fanatics to spew their hatred, but prevented anyone from speaking their minds back to the fanatics.

More than you ever wanted to read about the Tree House murder community in Key West

Today's post recaps my and three Key Way West of Weird people's participation in the Key West the Newspaper Facebook page discussion of the much stranger than fiction Tree House murder. The blue paper is well known for rocking the establishment boat. 

I don't think I know the commenter Sean Hynes. Lauren Jenai is the mainland friend of the Key West homeless man, Tyrone Franklin Tucker, "Ty", being prosecuted for murder, despite evidence he was not the stabber, because he is right-handed and the stabber was determined to be left-handed. The reader comments won't make much sense, unless the blue paper article is read first. 

Here's a link to the article:

About this website

TREE HOUSE MURDER: The Investigators Under Investigation Oct 192019   Captain Penny Phelps interviews Rory Wilson, Nov 22, 2017 by Arnaud Girard… For two years Ty Tucker has claimed he’s being framed. He’s accused of stabbing Matthew Bonnett to death one night in November of 2017. It’s a Ke...
  • Sloan Bashinsky Not to worry, brave soul, if you didn't investigate and report this saga, maybe you would be in dutch with God? Besides, the blue paper has a l-o-n-g history of rocking the local law enforcement boat, And, criminal cases are debated in the local, state and national media ongoing. I debated criminal cases in Key West, Florida Keys, and mainland on my blogs ongoing.

    A friend sent me this parallel dimension criminal trial in which the judge herself ended up being tried by the accused, and she finally left the courtroom and the defendant walked out a free man, as he had claimed all along he was.

  • Sloan Bashinsky I heard a number of times when I lived in Key West that Colleen Dunne was a heartless prosecutor, she tried to get the maximum sentence for every person she prosecuted.

    Now here is something else.

    If Paula Belmonte is the skinny short redish-hair Paula I have known since 2001, or a little later ... We met on the streets of Key West when I was homeless. I saw Paula often at the soup kitchen after it moved from St. Mary Star of the Sea on Truman Avenue out to the St. Mary's outpost on Flagler Avenue above Key West High School. I had many conversations with Paula over the years. I heard said she was a crack whore, which hurt my heart, because I only had good interactions with her.

    That personal history aside, if Paula Belmonte, in fact, was a crack dealer, it's not hard for me to wonder if local enforcement knew it and kept an eye on her and for crack, or whatever drug, she or the Tree House received and passed along. Received via offshore boats that run inshore to Stock Island or via motor vehicles that drive down from south Florida.

    Under that scenario, it's not hard to wonder if sheriff personnel were trying to catch bigger fish than Paula?

    Nor is it hard to wonder if some sheriff personnel were making money from drugs that came to Paula or the Tree House?

    I guess it would be too much of a stretch to wonder if Colleen Dunne has been in cahoots with any sheriff personnel involved the Tree House case? But then, if Colleen did, in fact, withhold important evidence in another case she prosecuted ,,, this Alabama lawyer who quit wonders if Colleen will be prosecuted? Perhaps a special prosecutor from the mainland, as I can't imagine the State Attorney Office prosecuting her. Too close to the bone.

    I got to thinking along those lines after pondering the prosecution's side of Judge Mark Jones' courtroom being stuffed with sheriff personnel in street clothes. Why? To try to intimidate Judge Jones? To try to impress on Judge Jones that Ty Tucker has to be sent to prison and executed, because some of them, or friends of some of them, or their snitches might get prosecuted, convicted, and sent to prison and executed, if Ty doesn't get sent to prison and executed?


    • Sean Hynes What were they going to rob Paula for? A Metro Pcs phone?
      All of the petty street level dealers she threw under the bus cannot make up for the man who lost his life because of her presence on the street, at the tree house, whatever.
      And from the looks of it, she's about to go ghost, watch.
      Because the shit is about to hit the proverbial fan in a big old way.
      Make a deal with the Devil, gotta pay the due eventually. Bad news all the timd5

    • Lauren Jenai Sloan Bashinsky - you are on to something. And yes, Colleen Dunne is in cahoots with Penny Phelps and Matt Pitcher. This dynamic trio will be held accountable for the myriad of lies they have used to arrest and confine an innocent man for almost two years. It is sickening and terrifying that something like this can happen.

    • Sloan Bashinsky Sean Hynes Whatever your view of Paula Belmonte, the blue paper article is about what the local justice system has done and continues to do to Ty Tucker. You might wish to see the reader comments under a post at my blog, link below, and open the link in commenter LJ's comment and read the narratives provided by LJ, ,whom I think is Ty's mainland friend who hired the Horan law firm in Key West.

    • Sean Hynes Sloan Bashinsky True. Be it a judge, law enforcement officer, or prosecuting attorney; if that public official is operating outside of the law in any way, that constitutes a flawed and broken system. It's only logical to remove and replace the broken parts or components. It was only a matter of time before a chain of events like the " Tree house murder" with it's Causal agents and unforseen chain of events.
      Very simple: if the MCSO hadn't allowed her to run amok for favors, she would be in jail with the rest of them. But someone died due to the negligence. You see, Sloan, the cover-ups, the corruption, and all of the truly unethical practices have gone on for way too long. The dirty secrets are being exposed to the rest of the world, bubba. Why do you think Dunne is so hasty in attaining the conviction? Because given time, the players involved, as well as their harrowing deeds will be exposed.
    • Sean Hynes Sloan Bashinsky you do know what a Causal agent is, right. Let me type it out for you: if Paula hadn't ripped those dudes off, the fucking death would have never happened. Ty would not be facing the dilemma he is currently facing. Dunne would still be abusing her authority and it would be "business as usual" Its a fucked up situation from start to finish.
    • Sean Hynes Sloan Bashinsky what the "local justice system" did was cause the man's death as well as violate and interfere with an individuals right to plead his innocence.

    • Sloan Bashinsky Sean Hynes From all you wrote about this case, I could think you are in the thick of the neighborhood, community, citizens involved. As such, I could think you are an excellent witness, and you should go straight to the FBI office in the US Courthouse building on Simonton Street in Key West and, under oath, tell an FBI agent there everything you know. I also think you should file sworn complaints with the Governor of Florida and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement telling everything you know.

    • Sloan Bashinsky Sean Hynes And, if you watched the sheriff deputy's body cam video of the scene right after Paula Belmonte was stabbed in the neck and the man was stabbed and killed, see link provided by Lauren Jenai just below, you saw a thoroughly freaked out and traumatized Paula. At my blog, you can see Mike Tolbert's (kwdawg's) comments in the October 24, 2019 post, and his comment under that post and my reply, about Paula and all the people involved. Tolbert claims he knows them all. I told Tolbert the same I told you. Go to the authorities and tell them under oath what he knows.

  • Sean Hynes A body turned-up just outside "frail old" Paula's tent in the mangroves at mm 5 (ramp) in 2008, too.
    But the man was poor and homeless, so no storybook ending for him. Died of a heart attack? Who you think supplied the rock, smoked it all up and then dragged the man's corpse outside next to the tent? Sure he would have appreciated a little dignity?
    I can name 3 people that sat in jail behind Paula's lies and tomfoolery after she robbed them? And then concocted some narrative complete with tears and award winning acting to boot. All roads lead to frail old Paula, and her "handlers" that allowed such an atrocity to go unchecked for so long- until an innocent man wound-up dead. Unacceptable.

  • Sean Hynes Karma. About time the cover-ups are exposed. Bye bye, Colleen; "Bon Voyage". keep digging, Blue paper. Keep digging. You will find Human rights violations, civil rights violations, and more un-ethical, illegitimate abuse of position and authority than you can shake a stick at. ⚖️

Below are Mike Tolbert's comments under the how about prosecuting the prosecutors in the murder prosecution of a Key West homeless man it appears was framed by the legal justice system post at this blog:

  • I know everybody involved if I had to bet my life on it I would bet Rory Did the Stabbing and TY cooked up the plan. He had been running streets with rory for several weeks. Give me a break. I had actually told a case worker and co worker since that Rory was gonna kill someone so it does not surprise me in the least. I would be looking into rorys prego gf whereabouts if I was Dennis ward, She is no shrinking violet either.
  • Interesting comment, "Mud Dawg". Looks to me you accused Ty of murder with your eyes wide open. If Ty wasn't homeless, that would be viewed a libel, per se. Looks to me you bet your life, and your soul, that Ty cooked up the murder plan.

    Since you say you know everyone involved, that causes me to think you should be questioned by law enforcement authorities that have nothing to do with Key West or the Florida Keys. Say, the FBI and the US Department of Justice.

    If I were Dennis Ward, I already would have asked the Feds to take over the investigation, including investigating the Monroe County Sheriff Department and my prosecutor, Coleen Dunn. I also already would have asked the Florida Governor to appoint a special prosecutor from the mainland to replace my office as the prosecutor. I also already would have asked the Advisory Committee to the Florida Supreme Court to investigate and recommend a circuit judge from outside the Florida Keys be assigned to preside over the prosecution henceforth.

  • Below are Mike Tolbert's comments under the no country for shrinking violets: The Tree House murder prosecution in Key West post at this blog. The Tree House is located on the ocean (county) side of the key, which is patrolled by the Sheriff Department, the headquarters of which are on the city side of the island. Key West's homeless shelter, KOTS, is located on the the sheriff's land. 
    1. Your a Idiot I knew them all from KOTS TY was Homeless and worked for me after KOTS! TY cooked up a robbery plan Most likely Matt was only killed when he intervened And tried to protect Paula. Jesus Dude you are really out there. I am actually surprised I was not contacted by law enforcement since I did Run Kots while they all stayed there and employed both Johnson and TY. I would never work Rory because I was convinced he and his Wife were both dangerous people.
    2. Looks to me you should be sitting down with the Sheriff Department, the State Attorney Office, the FBI, etc., and, under oath, telling them what you wrote in your comments at this blog, and anything else you know about the people involved.
