Day of Dialogue? You asked for it.

Hello My Wonderful CTB Family, It is your friendly, neighborhood, self-appointed Bishop here. Today I’m going to get a little serious up in here.

We’ve got some people who need to feel the love. They need to hear the truth. Today, I’m going to bring the love and the truth. You see … Read entire article »

THE BISHOP SAYS END THIS SHIT!

I know what you’re thinking, “Bishop!  Where the Hell have you been?” It’s been a long time since I posted anything.  And I gots to be honest with you.  Life has been a little bit whacked out.  You see my CTB crew, when there is a snow days I know most you probably sit back in your easy chair, sippin’ hot chocolate, and petting your cat.  That is not what happens at the Bishop’s house.  At the BIshop’s house, when there are snow days, all chaos breaks out.   Because the Bishop’s got four children under the age of 10.

Opinion: With DC’s Decriminalization of Marijuana, Baltimore Continues to Look Stupid

Opinion: With DC’s Decriminalization of Marijuana, Baltimore Continues to Look Stupid

http://ssdp.org/news/blog/d-c-city-council-passes-marijuana-decriminalization/ So it looks like Washington DC finally went right ahead last week and decriminalized possession of marijuana with a civil fine attached to its possession, a bill that passed overwhelmingly 11-1.

I Want More Traffic Laws

I Want More Traffic Laws

Hello CTB Family, It’s your friendly, neighborhood, self-appointed Bishop here.  As most of you know, two weeks ago new traffic laws came into effect in our dear state.  Well…not NEW laws.  Just tightened laws.  It’s been illegal for a while to look at your cell and drive; but now they can pull you over for it.  I find the change curious. So you made it illegal to use my phone in my car…but you don’t trust me … Read entire article »
