Poetic Obituaries: "I think coming to Elko and reading his poetry

at the Cowboy Poetry Gathering gave him a larger audience," she [Rodney Louis "Rod" McQueary's mother, Eloise] said. "That was a powerful experience for him. Later, he would use that poetry to express the tough things he went through in Vietnam." In 1993, McQueary and his friend Bill Jones published "Blood Trails," a book of poems based on both of the men's experiences in Vietnam. Some of McQueary's other stories, many light-hearted and humorous, have been published in numerous anthologies, including "Buckaroo: Visions and Voices of the American West" and "Cowboy Poetry: The Reunion." He and his wife, Wyoming legislator Sue Wallis, co-wrote "The Cowboy Cattle-log" and published "Surviving the Good Life," a memoir of Wallis' grandmother.

IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN TO JAIL, CHANCES ARE YOU'VE NEVER FOUGHT THE GOOD FIGHT AND SPOKEN OUT AGAINST THE AUTHORITIES' RAMPANT ABUSES OF THE LAST 30 YEARS. THOSE RIGHTS THE "WAR ON DRUGS" DIDN'T TAKE AWAY THE "WAR ON TERROR" WILL. EVEN AT THE LOCAL LEVEL.

EVERY TIME I'VE BEEN IN JAIL, IT RESULTED FROM SPEAKING OUT AGAINST THE LOCAL AUTHORITIES. NO MATTER WHAT THE CHARGE WAS. THE "POLICE" NEVER HAVE TO LOOK TOO FAR TO FIND SOMETHING THEY CAN CHARGE YOU WITH WHEN THERE'S A LAW AGAINST EVERYTHING YOU CAN DO OR POSSIBLY THINK OF DOING.

THEY GET MAD WHEN I CALL THEM COMMUNISTS THEN GO AND PROVE THERE'S NOT A DIME'S WORTH OF DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THEM AND THE COMMUNISTS.

I HAVE NOW BATTLED ELKO COUNTY, NEVADA FOR SEVEN YEARS. Because I tell the truth about how bottomlessly corrupt the sheriff (Jim Pitts - elkosheriff@elkocountynv.net - fax: 775-753-9845) and the Elko County commissioners (Jeff Williams - my millionaire mormon bishop cousin - rjeffwilliams1@hotmail.com - 775-738-2405) are. As well as the local gold mines Barrick (nevadajobs@barrick.com - fax: 775-748-1255) and Newmont (fax: 303-837-5837) who regularly BRIBE THESE OFFICIALS.

THESE CRIMINALS HAVE:

- PLACED ME ON A COUNTY-WIDE BLACKLIST TO STARVE ME OUT (I left a great job in Sacramento to live with my 85 year old mother, ELLEN BERRY, who wants to spend her last years in the house where she raised her kids). THIS BLACKLIST IS THE REASON I DECIDED TO GO ALL OUT - NOW THAT 100,000+ PEOPLE ARE VISITING DEANBERRYMINISTRIES.US - AND LET THE WORLD KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING TO MY FAMILY IN ELKO COUNTY, NEVADA, SUPPOSEDLY PART OF A "FREE COUNTRY". ONLY THE RICH AND THE AUTHORITIES WHO WORK FOR THEM ARE FREE. JUST LIKE EVERY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH - INDIA, MEXICO, SUDAN, MALAYSIA, ETHIOPIA, RED CHINA, AND THE BULK OF LATIN AND SOUTH AMERICA.
- Had deputies TRY to harrass me on several occasions. One redhaired female sergeant (I think you know who I'm talking about) even implied that she'd get ahold of the Dept Of Aging to have Mom removed from our home. A "conservative" cop, mind you, somebody who's supposedly against the encroachment of Big Brother Government. ELKOANS ARE ALWAYS WHINING ABOUT THE CALIFORNICATION OF NEVADA BUT OUR "LAW ENFORCEMENT" AND "PUBLIC SAFETY" AGENCIES ARE BEING MODELED AFTER CALIFORNIA'S.
- Used a "witness" in their employ and a MEXICAN ALIEN to convict me of battery even though the evidence and testimony clearly indicated I was DEFENDING myself. You can read those transcripts here: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/102112974/NO-JUSTICE-IN-ELKO-COUNTY-NEVADA?.
- Recently had me placed under surveillance because I made them aware that MORE THAN 100,000 PEOPLE A MONTH ARE VISITING DEAN BERRY MINISTRIES and they can read how evil and corrupt the REDNECK MORMONS WHO CONTROL ELKO COUNTY, NEVADA, are.
- Subsequently arrested me for DUI, WHICH I'D NEVER BEEN PICKED UP FOR IF DEPUTIES HADN'T BEEN STALKING ME. (And, quite tellingly, I haven't see those two deputies again. Because they were only in Wells for one reason, to follow me until the could get something on me.)
- Then, to top it all off, Friday Dec 7th (FOUR DAYS AFTER MY DUI ARREST), Monroe of the Nevada Highway Patrol cited me for failure to yield, whatever that means. S/he most likely would have let me off with a warning if two of the local CHICKENSHITS-DISGUISED-AS-DEPUTIES (one of them was PANTLOAD THORNAL, a mulatto) hadn't pulled up and put a bug in Monroe's ear about me calling them out as communists. WHICH THEY PROVE EVERY TIME THEY PLACE ME UNDER SURVEILLANCE AND ARREST ME. DUH! THE DOLTISH REDNECKS ARE NOT QUITE GETTING THIS. Also, when Monroe found out my DUI court date was Jan 7, 2012, s/he made sure my court date for the failure to yield ticket was the very same day. THIS IS WHAT THE RUSSIAN COMMUNISTS DID TO THE DISSIDENTS
