Jeffrey Lin was born with a cruel, hyperactive immune disease with no cure. Literally everything in the world is toxic. There are no safe foods to eat and he constantly struggles to breathe. Every moment the world tears him apart inside and out by intense itching, infections, and swelling. Even his tendons and ligaments react uncontrollably, causing his physiology to be continually twisted.
For 10-years he couldn’t touch water. He’s battered by every weather change. The attacks never eased over 26-years to allow sleep. He has experienced countless mental and emotional problems as well due to unrelenting stress, chronic sleep deprivation, malnutrition, PTSD, and medication side effects.
Despite a world of opposition, he holds a B.S. in Engineering & B.A. in Mathematical Economics from the #1 engineering college, Harvey Mudd. He’s a self-taught stock trader, entrepreneur, video producer, and digital media consultant for Wall St. and Hollywood.
Listen in to what our listeners had to say about offenders blaming alcohol for committing crimes and engaging in bad behavior including racist acts of hatred, murder and assault. Tonight's examples include the cases of John Rickey Hundley, who slapped an 18-month-old Black baby for crying on an airplane, and Philadelphia Eagles' wide receiver Riley Cooper who went on a race-bashing tirade at a country music concert, targeting Black fans in the audience. Both offenders blamed their offensive behavior on being intoxicated. Can alcohol truly cause a person's true character to be temporarily altered? Listen in tonight at 10:30 pm EST by calling 347-327-9967.
Assistance to the Incarcerated Mentally Ill (AIMI) is seeking volunteers. Tonight we welcome Zora Ray, who is AIMI's Advocacy Coodinator for Drug/Alcohol Dependencies, Zora Ray, at 9pmEST. Please call to speak on air at (818) 572-2947. Everyone is invited! Zora is a retired psychiatric nurse who successfully battled drug addiction and depression herself, and she looks forward to helping other people. Email Zora at the address below:
As a AIMI advocate, Zora will try to find treatment centers and other services for persons who suffer from drug/alcohol dependencies. AIMI believes that persons with drug/alcohol addictions need TREATMENT, NOT PUNISHMENT. Therefore, Zora will attempt to have drug/alcohol-dependent defendants tried in drug courts rather than regular criminal courts, and she will attempt to influence decision makers to sentence addicts to treatment rather than to jails and prisons.
If you would like to work with AIMI as a volunteer, please contact MaryLovesJustice at MaryLovesJustice@gmail.com or call AIMI's director at (678)531.0262 or (571)335-1741. We need people of every race and socioeconomic status, because mental illness affects people from every group. No matter what your skills and educational level may be, AIMI has a volunteer job for you.
