Book Description

My name is Bodine. I’m a ROD, an acronym for retired-on-duty, LA cop on a pension. I rode a bike and walked a beat for thirty years, stayed alive, and I’m still packing. I’m married, but sleep alone. I don’t have friends. I don’t talk to anyone. I drink by myself. I stir my coffee counterclockwise and my toilet paper feeds from the top. You won’t see me on the streets because there’s nothing about me that would garner your attention. Generally, I keep my head down and go about my business, but sometimes, like a blue moon rising, even a guy like me has to jump up and yell “WTF!”

Serendipity, if you will, never sat down and played a hand of poker with me until I had to make a garden-variety dash to the store one day for smokes. It was a little errand that forever altered my life given that I ran into this punk kid, a wannabe gangbanger that wore his pants halfway down his ass. He called himself Slash. Over time, I would learn that he had been born into and raised within the welfare system, an environment that eventually would cost him his family and almost his life. Thirty years of riding a bike and walking a beat supplied me with a ton of street smarts, but truth be told, I didn’t know jack about the effects of being engulfed in the welfare system and how that could destroy a person’s soul. And so, a chance meeting between a cantankerous, worn-down old cop and a ratty, bogus-badass juvenile would evolve into a remarkable collaboration of souls. As time passed, we would bear many crosses to each other, but ultimately, Slash became the conduit that allowed me to recognize that, beyond the intellect, only the heart remains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Democrat/Republican/Tea Party you decide June 19, 2013

If you're a conservative, you'll love the book. Get it and read it. If you a far left loon, you'll hate it precisely because it does make sense. Get the book anyway. If it doesn't change your mind (and you don't die from a stroke after reading it), then at least you'll have more to rant and rave about. One of the most thought provoking books I've ever read. A true masterpiece.

The Civil War as we know it, this is not. It is however, Citizens rising to bring down the Welfare State that we are now living in. This is creative writing at its best; an all inspiring need to go out and make a difference; GREAT reading with a heartwarming ending.

This book is encouraging to the defeated spirit; a giving heart to a 16 yr old who is growing up, knowing nothing but how to cheat the government; a receiving mind and heart of Ruben, the 16 yr old, to make a change in his life and a woman who "lies when she has too and loves when allowed" but supports and loves Ruben unconditionally, something he's never know in his short life.

We see these kids each day on the corner, in the store or just wondering the streets and even in Wal-Mart. They hate what has happened to them and think that they would want to be a better person know they do not have the knowledge to make it happen. A person wearing better shoes, clothes and jewelry much better than what you have, and is buying much more expensive food with Food Stamps. I get mad. What do you do? I never thought that I could take someone into my home and teach them how to be a giver instead of a taker.

This new book by Joe H. Bell, Jr. has once again opened my mind to new things. At the age of 66, I need to retire but feel that I can't. Why? I have taken the responsibility of raising someone else's child and want him to be a good citizen. So I don't retire and I don't take what is really mine. I do not want my child to think that he would have to accept always Medicaid and other government subsides. I do want him to be independent. Is that wrong? I think not. That was what I learned early as a young child by my mother and daddy and I hold that life lesson as near and dear to my heart and soul.

More About the Author

I was asked recently, why do you write? My response ... I write because I remember.

Those memories are all that I have of a family departed. I remember the enjoyable times, those that were appalling, along with the occasional sprinkle of contentment.

We all struggle with inner demons, sometimes on a daily basis and some have fought these battles for decades ... that would be me. I bestowed unsullied trust upon those deemed worthy, yet they knew not the treasure, and this propelled me into oblivion for years.

In the end, I'm my happiest when I'm writing as it is my chosen weapon against my enemies within. "The pen is mightier than the sword" is somewhat of a proverb coined by English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839. Indeed ... it is.
