Sorry Las Vegas. But your beef is subpar to New York City.
It is not impossible to get fresh food that was not previously frozen in Las Vegas. But it would be cost prohibitive. Jedi shop for the highest quality food. We tell the difference in how it tastes, looks and makes you feel. Frozen food has lost many nutrients. You feel hungry even though your stomach is full of beef. That'[s because the nutrients were depleted when they froze your food,
One of the cool things about traveling in the 21st century is #truefacts #ticketless #travel. We can buy tickets online, make changes, buy seats, change flights, get boarding passes, get baggage passes and board the plane all without human contact.
The Jedi are our Uber driver’s first passenger ever. He was truck driver for years. He lived in California for 35 years. He got tired of no plastic bags so he moved to Nevada 4 months ago.
People were hopeful after March Madness. Las Vegas Casinos took in the highest gaming revenue fir March since 2013. Unfortunately, that did not carry over to April 2021. Perhaps it was tax season. EDC rescheduled for Fall 2021.
We’ve been in Las Vegas for approximately two weeks. We have eaten only organic beef from Whole Foods. We try to buy some organic beef from Walmart, however, when we went to three different Walmart superstores they were all either out of beef, one had freezers out of commission, closed for an emergency. And because our plane was delayed 2 hours, we only had less than 2 hours from the time we landed to find organic beef in Las Vegas. We had to go to 4 stores.fortunately, Smiths had some 90/10 beef. Subpar, but sustainable after a 12 hour day.
The beef in Las Vegas is not as nutritious as the beef in New York. I have documented my weight during my stay.
April 27th 2021 — that’s it. Jedi Rich concluded he’s getting fatter eating the food in Vegas. It’s time to go back to New York City . Tomorrow.

I was a banker in Manhattan. I sold internet banking software to banks. I was traumatized after 9/11. I had several therapists. Eventually I quit and moved to Aspen Colorado to bartend.
20 years later I’m a artist. I don’t know how to make an artists’s resume. Here my first try
Are you sure? Because your human resources department will not let you.
Out of the box thinkers:
It has been a long, hard journey. I chose the road less traveled. I have made millions and lost millions; more than once. I have been arrested and served my time; more than once. But never for stealing or do anything dishonest. I was a victim of the war on drugs and the 9/11 attacks.
After the 9/11 attacks, I was deeply traumatized. I saw a psychotherapist PhD three times a week at $300 a session. I saw a psychiatrist M.D. once a week at $300 a session. I had two of the best doctors in Manhattan attempt to make me feel better after 9/11. Nothing worked.
Six months after 9/11, my employer, CheckFree, let me go. The reason was there was not enough business in New York City that will close in time to meet my goals. You don't say. Yep, no one was buying anything for about 6 months in Manhattan after 9/11. But that did not matter to my manager, Judith Duplisea. Judith was an "uptight, Catholic, South Boston bitch." That is what she called herself. Those are her words not mine. Anyway, my boss was a Jewish Hollywood liberal. Those two hated each other. But they both wanted me on their team. My boss got fired so Judith got me in 2001. She paid for me to relocate to Manhattan on September 1st, 2001. By March 2002 she let me go. Wow.
I have never been abandoned before. This was scary. I was alone in Manhattan. I was 3000 miles from home and my company abandoned me after 9/11. I have never felt so scared. I cried every night. I moved from Gramercy Park to a small apartment in the Lower East Side. I live above a bar, across from Tompkins square park. I started doing drugs. I started bartending. I loved it. I felt I was channeling the people who died in 9/11 from New York City. Where did I learn these skills? Within 6 months, I was serving Ivanka Trump, Alan Greenspan, Robert Diero, OJ Simpsin, Carrot Top, Mariah Carey to name a few. I had a great job a the Little Nell in Aspen Colorado in 2004-2005. Bt in 2006 I got arrested for cocaine possession in Portland, Oregon during Aspen's off-season.
Since then, I have changed the way I view the World. I understand how difficult life is once you have a criminal record. It's impossible to get a job other than working a gas pump. That was not good enough fo me. I moved to another country to start over. Panama in 2013.
That is where Jedi Joy and I first came up with the idea for a #JediJoyRichShow. We weren't Jedi at that time, of course. We were drunk Americans living abroad in cheap hotels. We spent $8 a day on rum, sometimes twice. About $125 on cocaine a day, usually not twice. We lived their for a year. We did not want to leave but our visa expired twice. If we did not leave, we would be banned from Panama. We paid a $600 fine for overstaying.
Fast forward, Jedi Joy and I learned how to make money in Las Vegas. It was all cash. I couldn't get a job with a as a bartender with my record and neither could Joy. Joy had a DUI Diversion back in 2009 but those still show up on background checks. Too embarrassing. Joy would bsujected to working hourly jobs and she was a decorated US Air Force Combat Veteran.
By not working main stream jobs, we learned a lot. We stopped watching TV. We started reading about health. We learned how take to stay thin while everyone else got fat during the pandemic. I lost 175 pounds. Its been a long journey but we have learned a lot about life, business, people, customers, And we documented everything on video on our website, YouTube, Vimeo, IG, Twitter Facebook accounts.
Please review my resume. If you have have any questions, let me know. There is no need to do a background check. I will tell you everything. Video samples can be found here.

The Manhattan district attorney’s office announced Wednesday that it would no longer prosecute prostitution and unlicensed massage, putting the weight of one of the most high-profile law enforcement offices in the United States behind the growing movement to change the criminal justice system’s approach to sex work.
The district attorney, Cyrus R. Vance Jr., asked a judge on Wednesday morning to dismiss 914 open cases involving prostitution and unlicensed massage, along with 5,080 cases in which the charge was loitering for the purposes of prostitution.
The law that made the latter charge a crime, which had become known as the “walking while trans” law, was repealed by New York State in February.
The announcement represents a substantive shift in the Manhattan district attorney’s approach to prostitution. Many of the cases Mr. Vance moved to dismiss dated to the 1970s and 1980s, when New York waged a war against prostitution in an effort to clean up its image as a center of iniquity and vice.
“Over the last decade we’ve learned from those with lived experience, and from our own experience on the ground: Criminally prosecuting prostitution does not make us safer, and too often, achieves the opposite result by further marginalizing vulnerable New Yorkers,” Mr. Vance said in a statement.
The office will continue to prosecute other crimes related to prostitution, including patronizing sex workers, promoting prostitution and sex trafficking, and said that its policy would not stop it from bringing other charges that stem from prostitution-related arrests.
That means, in effect, that the office will continue to prosecute pimps and sex traffickers, as well as people who pay for sex, continuing to fight those who exploit or otherwise profit from prostitution without punishing the people who for decades have borne the brunt of law enforcement’s attention.
Manhattan will join Baltimore, Philadelphia and other jurisdictions that have declined to prosecute sex workers. Brooklyn also does not prosecute people arrested for prostitution, but instead refers them to social services before they are compelled to appear in court — unless the district attorney’s office there is unable to reach them.
The Brooklyn district attorney, Eric Gonzalez, in January moved to dismisshundreds of open cases related to prostitution and loitering, and said that he would eventually ask that more than a thousand be dismissed. The Queens and Bronx district attorneys followed in March, moving to dismiss hundreds of prostitution-related cases.
Prosecutions for sex work had already been dropping dramatically over the past decade, said Abigail Swenstein, a staff attorney with the Legal Aid Society’s Exploitation Intervention Project, with occasional spikes, such as one during 2014 when the Super Bowl was held at MetLife Stadium, just outside the city.
She added that the vast majority of her clients over the last two years had been women arrested in massage parlors.
Ms. Swenstein said that Mr. Vance’s move would likely “have reverberations for sex workers and trafficking survivors well outside of New York City,” and that it would make them feel “less stigmatized.” She commended the district attorney for having formulated the policy after talking to sex workers and others with relevant experience.
Mr. Vance’s office had been in the practice of dismissing prostitution cases after sending those charged to mandatory counseling sessions. Going forward, Mr. Vance’s statement said, such counseling sessions would be provided only on a voluntary basis.
Sex workers have been fighting for decriminalization for decades. But the 2019 formation of Decrim NY, a coalition of organizations that support full decriminalization and have worked to lobby lawmakers, represented a turning point for the movement.
In New York City, those calls have grown louder. Last month, Mayor Bill de Blasio and his wife, Chirlane McCray, called on the state to end criminal penalties for sex workers.
“The communities hit hardest by the continued criminalization of sex work and human trafficking are overwhelmingly L.G.B.T.Q., they are people of color, and they are undocumented immigrants,” Ms. McCray said at the time. “Sex work is a means of survival for many in these marginalized groups.”
Declining to prosecute prostitution and other related crimes has also been a focus of the candidates to replace Mr. Vance, who announced in March that he would not run for re-election. The majority have said that they would halt the prosecutions if elected.
Eliza Orlins, a candidate for the office and a former public defender, has been particularly vocal, releasing a comprehensive policy paper on the subject in which she said that she would fight to make it legal in New York to buy and sell consensual sex. Whether to prosecute those who patronize prostitutes has been a subject of consistent debate among feminist organizations.
In an interview on Wednesday, Ms. Orlins said that she was happy to see the shift, but that it had taken too long and that, in continuing to prosecute those who patronize sex workers, the office had not gone far enough.
“Am I glad that someone in a position as powerful as the Manhattan district attorney’s office is finally speaking out and saying that we shouldn’t be prosecuting people for engaging in their jobs? Of course I’m glad,” she said. “But do I think that he deserves to be held out as heroic by the movement when he has not done enough and acted quickly enough? No.”
BTS Behind the scenes footage.
I really don't know. But I know that marijuana has been called "The Devil's Drug", "Devil's Lettuce" etc. I know. I know that Adolf Hitler was born on April 20, 1889. The Imperial Palace's owner in Las Vegas would host annual "Hitler was Right" parties. He eventually got in trouble. The Imperial Palace sold and its now the Linq Hotel. I have also heard that Hitler was a Satanist, but that could be more of an Urban Myth.
Anyways, Happy 420 Day.
