This Is Exactly Who And What We Are!

Take a good look at the picture and tell me that this is not who and what we are!

Whatever happened to protecting family that you love??!! But a goddamn phone??!!! Seriously??!!!

When I saw this shit in a store, I just had to take a picture of it to show just how stupid we are; how completely gone we are in that most of us can just bypass a display of this type and think nothing of it because it is true for most. I don’t have a smartphone and I will never use one and so for me, what the hell do I need to protect a damn device for? I don’t.

“Protect the things you love.”

And there is no picture of family, friends and other loved ones. This is a picture of a white woman staring at a smartphone with a cover on it and the words, “Protect the things you love.” There are no pictures of a smiling baby in her arms with the caption, “Protect what you love.” There is a smartphone in a woman’s hand and we are told that it is something that we love and so protect it at all costs because it is more important than your own children, your spouse, your mother, your father and even you. Protect that damn phone!

“Protect the things you love.”

There is no need to protect your health. Don’t love ‘good health’. Protect a phone that is going to help cause your death because 5G technology is going to see to that. And if you are any doubt as to the truth in what I just wrote, go here if you feel the need to learn why 5G cellphone technology is going to kill your ass.

5G isn’t yet widely available, but it’s coming!

US 5G Rollout

Verizon: Fixed and mobile 5G is live in a few areas
AT&T: Mobile 5G for select customers in 19 cities; wider coverage in 2019
T-Mobile: Commercial 5G launch in second half of 2019; nationwide coverage expected in 2020
Sprint: Deploying 5G to four markets on May 31
U.S. Cellular: 5G services coming in second half of 2019
C Spire: Fixed 5G services in Mississippi
Charter: Testing 5G, but no solid rollout plans
Starry: Fixed 5G currently in Boston, Denver, LA, New York City, and Washington DC

“Protect the things you love.”

Never mind that this thing is going to kill you and your family. “Protect this thing you love.” Never mind that no one is sounding the alarm over what the harmful technology behind cellphones is doing to you as you “protect this thing you love.”

“Protect the things you love.”

Smartphones, personal assistants, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, killer cellphone towers and radiation from those towers are what you love because if you didn’t, you’d be screeching and wailing that someone needs to put a stop to this shit. But you won’t. You’ve got friends all across the globe who ‘like’ everything you post on Youtube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and in order for them to ‘like’ your shit, you need that killer technology. You need it more than you need those who are in your immediate vicinity because look around you. There are nothing but cell towers and people looking down at smartphones as if their very lives depend on what is scrolling down a screen. I actually mourn decades long gone because we did not have this stupid shit. We had not embraced, with fervor, that which is going to kill us. We don’t even look up and see that we are being fucked up because we are liking being hypnotized by these gadgets that have dumbed us down and made us apathetic and complacent. We don’t need to get up off the couch to do anything because there is an app for everything on that goddamn smartphone that we “protect because we love it.” How sad is that? That smartphone is the first thing you pick up in the morning before you even see your own child. That smartphone is the last thing you look at before you close your eyes to sleep. And you make sure that it’s charging. You have no idea how sad assed you really are; none! Because you’ve been brainwashed, willingly into complying with everything that’s being done to strip away any rights we ever had because now when you look up, you’re at an airport forced to damn near strip naked to be searched before you board a plane and the only reason you know this is because you have got to hand that smartphone over to a TSA official, who seventeen years ago, was never even thought of. But by all the christians in hell, you’d beat the shit out of that TSA agent if he failed to hand you back this thing you love, your smartphone. It’s your lifeline.

You have never questioned why after September 11, 2001, a mere two months later, you’re being damn near strip searched and/or radiated in order to board a plane. The Department of Homeland Security was established in 2002. The Patriot Act was passed in 2005. And each and every single one of these events cost us our ‘freedom’. Although truth be told, those of us who are American descendants of slaves never had any freedoms to begin with. But we have to be violated at airports the same as whites.

September 11, 2001 was an excuse to bring to an end, any pretense that this shithole was ever about freedom, justice and rights and yet, we sit somewhere not even noticing that what we are directed to protect is a goddamn smartphone when what we should have been protecting was each other and in doing so, we would have said, “Hell no!” to The Department of Homeland Security, to the Patriot Act, to TSA agents and to every entity this fucked up useless ass government started up for the express purpose of stripping ‘U.S.’ of any rights we ever thought we had.

“Protect the things you love.”

Oh, you’re doing that alright! Since a smartphone is most definitely, what you love! Family, freedom, justice, rights? Who needs ’em??!!

 

You Can’t Reason With The Stupid!

 

If their smartphones should go dead,
there’ll be many filled with dread.

If the lights go out and stay,
then there’ll be no games to play.

When there are no more distractions, will they open their eyes and see,
that the world is filled with people beyond just you and me.

But will the selfish become caring or simply wail for their toys,
and of those who’ve known the truth, will they be heard above the noise?

If you’re ever in any doubt as to how Americans will act,
just look at all the times their credit card’s been hacked.

These are people who never learn, they will never rally around.
Their heads are in the clouds, their feet don’t touch the ground.

You can’t reason with the stupid and believe me, I did try!
I finally gave it up, do I need to tell you why?

These are the very people who when polled are quite unsure,
if the economy is improving or if they’re sinking in manure.

When a world is in crisis with people fleeing left and right,
Americans’ only concern is what will fill them with delight.

Give them their distractions so that they don’t have to see
a child stumbling across the desert because she is a refugee.

What The Hell Is Going On??!!!

I subscribe to Minneapolis news and so I could not help but notice that the news out of Minneapolis is quite bizarre!

First up, we have this!

Lunds & Byerlys To Close All Pharmacies Next Week

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – All 14 Lunds & Byerlys pharmacy locations will permanently close July 17 due to “significant losses,” the company said Friday in a statement.

“Unfortunately, it has become increasingly difficult for retail pharmacies given a number of economic challenges within the industry,” the statement reads. “As a result, we have continued to incur significant losses in our pharmacy operations, and it is no longer feasible to continue offering this service.”

A pharmacy is finding “it has become increasingly difficult” to continue to operate due to “significant losses?” How is that even possible when everyone on this planet is sick as shit??!!! That doesn’t even make any sense. Every time I have to take people to a pharmacy, the lines are so backed up, it is unreal and so I just don’t get this.

Nor do I get this!

Famous Dave’s in Uptown closes

Famous Dave’s in Minneapolis’ Uptown has closed. Officials of the award-winning local barbecue restaurant say the plan is to open elsewhere and hinted at changes in the format with the next iteration.

For those of you who don’t know what Famous Dave’s is, it is a barbecue joint that also served as a wonderful nightspot for live entertainment. It was located in the so-called, “hippest area of town,” and now it has closed. Famous Dave’s was an icon in Uptown. Many a night, I found myself gyrating or as some would call it, “stomping roaches” on the dance floor. Even though I am Black, apparently, thanks to slavery, I’ve too much ‘white’ in me and therefore, since ‘whites can’t dance’, then neither can I. However, I digress. What the hell is going on??!! That place was always jumping at night and on Sundays, they had champagne brunches and of course, my brunch consisted of only ‘liquids’, the champagne kind. I have got to make a trip to Minneapolis in the coming months thanks to a lawsuit and I was really looking forward to heading over to Famous Dave’s for the nightly entertainment. Well, that’s out. Another favorite nightspot of mine just recently shut down; Market Barbecue. I used to love going there for karaoke, but I can’t do that anymore since Dominium Property Management Company is said to be building affordable housing units and needed that space. The problem with that is that Dominuium is known for being among the worst when it comes to apartment management.

And we come to this!

Minnesota-Based Regional Trucking Company Abruptly Closes

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A regional trucking company based in Minnesota has abruptly ceased operations.

On the company’s website, LME trucking of Roseville notified shippers that “but effective July 12, 2019 LME Inc. will no longer be making pickups or deliveries of freight due to unforeseen circumstances and have ceased operations.”

According to several reports, the abrupt closure left hundreds of employees without a job.

LME’s website says the company operates across Midwest, with over 30 terminals throughout the region with over 600 men and women making up the LME team.

Over 600 people have abruptly lost their jobs in an area where rents are skyrocketing and where affordable housing is all but unheard of. As of today, those 600 workers have joined the ranks of the unemployed and must apply for unemployment benefits and hopefully find another job before those benefits run out. Meanwhile, Trump continues to tout his lies that there is almost full employment in Amerikkka and that everyone who is seeking a job can find a job. We have three businesses that have just shuttered their doors and left employees holding the bag. But at least Famous Dave’s is saying that all affected employees at its closed Uptown restaurant can take jobs at any of its other locations. Depending on where the employees live relative to where those locations are may hamper their ability to take a job at another location when considering gas and how long it is going to take them to get there. Most employees tend to want to work near where they live. And I must say, the other Famous Dave’s locations are quite a ways from the closed Uptown location.

And the bad news continues.

172 sickened in Big Island 4th of July outbreak, cause unclear

MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) – State and county health officials say more than 170 people fell ill due to an outbreak at Big Island on Lake Minnetonka on the Fourth of July.

Investigators interviewed more than 200 people and learned more than 172 people experienced symptoms such as vomiting and diarrhea.

Health officials are urging people to practice good hygiene habits while visiting the lake, such as not using the lake as a bathroom, washing hands and showering before and after entering the lake.

It was later confirmed that e coli was the cause meaning “White folks, you’re nasty!” Lake Minnetonka is the rich white folks playground and they have often been in the news for operating boats while intoxicated out of their minds. If Black folks carried on like that, we’d have been locked up so fast, our heads would be spinning. But drinking and operating a car, truck or boat is fine so long as your skin is pallid. Not to be outdone, at least three Minneapolis beaches have been closed due to e coli contamination.

And even more bad news, but this is out of Oakland, CA!

Oakland real estate developer’s controversial cash stunt to clear homeless camp backfires

Developer and Trump supporter, Gene Gorelik, of the Oakland Redevelopment Group, stood on a boom lift holding a bullhorn announcing, “Free money! Free money!” and dropping dollar bills over a homeless encampment in Oakland, California, Friday morning. Wearing an elf costume, Gorelik offered residents $1,000 each to move, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

Residents of the encampment are shown on video posted to social media, shouted, “Fuck you, Gene,” in response.

By the end of Gorelick’s “offer,” no one had accepted any of the cash he had offered those at the homeless encampment.

The city of Oakland sued Gorelik in 2017 after he demolished his tenant’s apartment while the man was still inhabiting the residence.

Ultimately, Gorelik’s attempt to remove residents of the camp failed, and he was escorted away by at least two officers from the Oakland Police Department after a protester blocked his rented truck from leaving the encampment, according to the Chronicle’s Jessica Christian.

One woman in the video who has been declared the mayor of this particular homeless camp had something to say and it is so very true.

“Even if you move everybody from here, it’s another location they’ll be at and then you have to move them again and again and again. It’s not a solution.”

No, it is not a solution. It is not even addressing the root causes of why there are so many homeless camps. But one of the reasons why there is such a huge problem of homelessness is thanks in part to Developer and Trump supporter, Gene Gorelik and those like him who cannot see past the immense wealth that they continue to hoard at the expense of this planet and all who call it, dare I say, “home?” We are in deep shit thanks to those like Gene Gorelik who refuse to do anything to try and address climate change since he is hell bent on throwing up even more steel monstrosities that only add to our climate change woes. And how is standing on a platform, dressed in an ‘elf’ suit and throwing around dollar bills going to make people go away who really have nothing left to lose and who have found their own sense of community out of necessity? What Gene Gorelik did was an absolute insult; a slap in the face of those homeless people. These capitalist pigs just don’t get it! Gene Gorelik thought that everyone at that homeless camp was going to accept his ill-gotten gains and then move the hell along. To where? Now if Gene Gorelik had said, “I’ve just now opened affordable housing units for you all,” that would have been cause to celebrate. But doing the ‘right’ thing is not something that is even on Gene Gorelik’s loathsome mind. His ‘kind’ is never going to get it. He is going to die still thinking that ‘his’ way was the BEST way and that nothing he did was detrimental to a soul because he doesn’t have one.

And so no, this is not just a ‘bad news’ blog, this is a reality blog because the reality is that those who have set all of this in motion and who it seems, are about to try and bail because they see what’s coming, are not going to get hit with an epiphany and all of a sudden start doing the ‘right’ thing. Hell! Even as Gorelik’s buddy Trump sits his debased ass inside the White House that just had the basement flood, he is still denying climate change. We are at the mercy of psychopaths and since we are, we are ALL headed for disaster, not just those who have already found themselves at rock bottom in a homeless camp in Oakland, CA. I hear tell that there are two different scenarios playing out in New Orleans right now thanks in part to Tropical Storm Barry; those who are fleeing for their very lives and those who are celebrating like it’s 1999. Which scenario fits you?

In conclusion folks, the only thing I do know is that there has been a distinct turn of events that does not bode well for the majority of us. The ‘good times’ are gone and they are not coming back. Whether you want to believe that you will make it through whatever is to come, that’s up to you, but believe me, what we are seeing is unprecedented. People are killing their children like nothing I’ve ever seen; people who have been labeled, “mentally ill” for want of any other explanation. People have become more enraged than I have ever seen what with a woman who just killed her husband in a road rage incident. I just read reports that two more stores are shuttering their doors for good and this is in addition to the ones that I have included in this post. Where I live, stores are shuttering their doors, left and right. The one mall we have, if it can be called that, has only two anchor stores, J.C. Penny and Belk. The ‘food court’ has four food stalls and even McDonald’s closed. When I was in Baltimore, MD in May, I went to the so-called “World Famous Lexington Market” and several stalls had closed and when I went back in June, even more stalls had closed. There are now more closed stalls than there are open ones. Everywhere seems to be turning into a ‘ghosttown’. People everywhere are depressed, on drugs or are drinking themselves to death. And yet Wall Street’s fake ass shenanigans continue. Capitalist pigs like Trump’s friend and supporter, Gene Gorelik continue to throw up huge steel monstrosities. Homeless camps continue to gain membership, Mother Nature continues to wreak havoc and no one really has a clue. Yes indeed, what the hell is going on??!!!

If You Don’t Like How Black People Are Depicted In Movies Produced By Whites, Don’t Whine About It, Boycott. It Really Is That Simple.

Hollywood has been depicting Black people in the most demeaning roles since day one and for us to continue to hand over our hard-earned dollars to sit up and watch pure shit is ridiculous even if we are doing so in order to write down our thoughts on just how fucked over Black people are in the latest film to come down the pike.

A blogger I follow never fails to post her perspective on every movie that portrays a Black person or in other words, an American descendant of slaves in a demeaning, stereotypical or otherwise fucked up way and each time she has posted her perspective, not one time has there been a perspective detailing the wonderful and glorifying role for the American descendant of slaves. Each time, the Black body has been compartmentalized such as in ‘The Help’, ‘The Butler’, ‘Gone With The Wind’, ‘Monster’s Ball’, ‘Twelve Years A Slave’, ‘Mandingo’, ‘Birth of A Nation’, ‘The Jazz Singer’, ‘Aladdin’ and the list is endless. Each perspective basically mirrors the previous perspective and on and on it goes.

So my question would be, “Why sit up and watch what you already know that you are going to see and take umbrage with?” Whites are not going to change. Maybe a person is so desperate to be entertained that anything will do, but when the script is always the same and continues in that vein and ends as predicted, why even bother anymore? I just don’t get it. But then again, I don’t watch TV, nor do I spend my money sitting in a movie theater to watch some mess that I know I am going to complain about since whites ALWAYS depict Black people in the worst possible way while at the same time, portraying themselves as saviors and the very milk of human kindness when nothing could be further from the truth.

We get it! Hollywood shits on Black people, ALWAYS and that will never change. Until Black people pool their money together and open their own studios and produce their own movies, the portrayal of Black people in movies as thugs, prostitutes, drug addicts, ghetto hood rats, mammies, butlers, slaves and the like will continue. Whites enjoy their privilege of denigrating Black people and portraying them in the most demeaning ways possible while they sit back and pretend that even their shit don’t stink. But at the same time, since we already know that this shit is going to go down, why continue to sit there and watch that mess? Why give whites your money because when you do, how does that adversely affect them? It doesn’t. It merely emboldens the whites to continue to produce the same vile shit and that is why you are writing a perspective or an analysis that basically says the same thing, over and over again. Nothing changes. You need only change the title of the movie and the perspective or analysis fits each and every movie that has even one Black actor/actress ‘playing’ in it.

One movie the blogger took exception to is titled “Ma, Revenge of the Mammy.” Now, right out of the gate, I am not going to waste my time and especially my money watching something with that title. As I have stated previously, do we need to see any more ‘mammy’ films? Hell no! Why would we? If you’ve seen one ‘mammy’ film, you’ve seen them all.

Another movie that the blogger wrote her perspective on is titled, “Aladdin,” with Will Smith playing the role of a genie. Like I am going to head to a theater to sit up and watch that mess. Hell no! I also read the perspective on “Aladdin” posted by yet another blogger that I follow and he is also Black and he did not like the movie and he stated that Will Smith’s awkward performance as the Genie made him look more like a flamboyant wedding planner than the cosmic comedy act he was supposed to be.

Meanwhile, Black America is burning! Black America is fucked up and Black people are using their voice to write perspectives on why whites are still insisting that Black people play subservient and dumbass roles in white produced films; fake ass fantasy produced by fake ass Hollywood. Why are we even sitting up in movie theaters in the first damn place watching this shit play out? The white man is a given. We know he ain’t about shit and is not about to put a Black person in a role that is uplifting or has any real and true meaning or value for Black people. Whites are our mortal enemy and they show us that shit each and every single day because while you sit your ass up in a movie theater, some Black man, woman and child is getting unholy hell beat out of them by racist cops or are being herded to prison on bullshit drug charges or are being denied loans, housing, employment and some more shit. Homelessness is an epidemic among Black people and because of homelessness, typhus and hookworm are extremely problematic for Black people who we all know don’t get adequate health care if they can get any healthcare at all. Gentrification is taking place all across this country. Focus on that! The few remaining hoods all have Asian liquor stores on every corner. They have ‘convenience’ stores owned by those Hindu motherfuckers on every corner robbing us blind while selling us outdated products at the same time. The Asians are also all up in the hood selling Black hair care products since they have cornered the market on that shit, not to mention the Asian takeout joints selling fried rice and fake ass beef broccoli.

But you want to concentrate on some meaningless shit like a movie. Seriously???!!! You could use your pen and your perspective on what really matters because that shit on a movie screen does not matter since not one of us should be sitting in a movie theater watching movies produced by our mortal enemy. What matters is what is going down daily that you fail to even acknowledge because you want us to understand that Hollywood is continuing to fuck us over in how Black people are typecast. Black America is burning and yet we are supposed to get all bent-out-of-shape over some well-paid Black actors/actresses that do ‘make believe’ when reality needs far more attention than it is receiving. If those Black people have no problem playing the fool, the slave, the butler, the mammy, the white man’s bed wench, the idiot, the prostitute, the pimp, the drug dealer; that shit is on them. There would not be a role for those stereotypes if there were not Black actors/actresses willing to play them and to say that Black people don’t have the money to open their own studios and produce their own movies is pure bullshit because though Blacks in Hollywood are not paid nearly what their white counterparts are paid, many have not done that poorly that they could not pool their money together and in all actuality open their own studios and produce their own movies. But no! They want the white man to pat them on their weave come Oscars time and Golden Globes time and on and on it goes for playing roles that a cockroach wouldn’t take. Again, that shit’s on them!

And you are just as bad as the Blacks who star in those roles because if not for people like you paying the white man when you head inside a movie theater and pay for that ticket, popcorn, soda, nachos and more shit of the like, the white man would not continuously put out those movies. Whites don’t do a goddamn thing unless there is profit in it. Take the profit out and that shit stops. But you won’t do that because Black people love to be entertained even if we are being entertained by watching mammies, slaves, fake ass African kingdoms, Black butlers, maids, pimps and prostitutes. As long as we can watch some make believe fake ass Black Panther “Wakanda Forever” shit and some Aladdin shit and some Twelve Years A Slave, Mandingo, The Help, The Butler, Ma, the Mammy and some more shit of the like, why we is there with bells on and money in hand! We really are our own worst enemy and I see more proof of this every goddamn day. More’s the damn pity!

Even the BBC took umbrage with Octavia Spencer starring in ‘Ma, Revenge of the Mammy.”

Octavia Spencer has played a maid, nurse or cleaner a total of 21 times, including in two of her three Oscar-nominated performances

A creation of white supremacy

Maybe the most important thing to know about mammy, though, is that she never actually existed. As evidenced in the research of historians including Cheryl Thurber and Patricia Turner, while the care of white children in the antebellum US South was sometimes entrusted to enslaved people, these ‘house slaves’ were typically light-skinned teenage girls (conditions for enslaved black women were, in any case, so harsh that 90 per cent died before their 50th birthday). Given the poor diet available to slaves, they were also highly unlikely to have been either fat or jolly. All this, according to the psychologist Chanequa Walker-Barnes, “affirms that Mammy was a largely mythical figure with little basis in the lived experiences of black women.”

Indeed, as Thurber has noted, literary depictions of the mammy peaked several decades after slavery, in nostalgic memoirs of the Old South written between 1906 and 1912. Along with other ‘controlling images’ of African-Americans such as the Sambo, the Jezebel and the Sapphire, the mammy was a creation of white supremacy, intended to bolster and legitimise the status quo. Or, put more simply, the US were so desperate to be absolved of the crimes of slavery, that such an absolver — maternal, asexual, ever-loyal and black — had to be invented.

But yeah, I really want to go see that! And believe me, big fucking eye-roll going on here!

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not Bloody Likely!

 

On a blog I posted in April of 2018, titled, “Americans Are Too Stupid To Realize That America Is A Fake Ass Disneyland! Smoke and Mirrors, People! Smoke and Mirrors! Read The Comments On This Article And Get A Damn Clue,” a comment posted on that blog made me sit and think for a spell. Below is the comment from qnubian528.

“People who aren’t from America had always see US “the big apple,the land of the thousand opportunities!”
That’s bullshit! What I always understood isn’t country of thousands opportunities,where “inequality” is a host,you can’t call civilize country where its own people can’t have free access on healthcare,but you can have free access to guns or every accessories that can kill human being!
Wow America country of thousands opportunities one of the bullshit I’ve ever heard!”

This bears repeating: “civilize country where its own people can’t have free access on healthcare, but you can have free access to guns or every accessories that can kill human being!”

That is so indicative of what this fucked up country stands for, it ain’t even funny. And millions do not have access to free healthcare and for those who do have access to healthcare, that healthcare is substandard. Only the rich can get great healthcare. The rest of us are dealing with healthcare that is comparable to what passed for healthcare in 1810 since what the fuck has changed as it relates to healthcare since? More women, especially Black women are dying in childbirth in what is supposed to be a ‘developed’ country than ever before, but in all actuality is more like a third world country. How in the world are people dying from childbirth in America? That makes no sense whatsoever, not unless it is ALL done by design and then it makes perfect sense.

And what about the shit that’s always on the news, the fact that yet another American has gone on a rampage and murdered multiple people and after the fact, law enforcement then finds a stash of assault weapons, multiple rounds of ammunition and enough guns and ammo to kill thousands. Meanwhile, the shooter’s mental health is questioned.

But now it is time to celebrate why hundreds of thousands of Americans have died in so many wars, I’ve lost count. It is time to celebrate the fact that this country loves war. America is in love with war and don’t say that it is not because if America was not in love with war, why then in the year 2019, is this country STILL at war and STILL trying to find some country to be at war with? War is ALL this country has ever known. The first ‘illegal’ colonizers warred with the Indians for this land and that set the standard; if you want something, go to war. If you want someone else’s land, go to war. If you want to build the country on the backs of another continent’s people, battle those people for their people, subdue them and then take the people from that continent. If you want some country’s oil, go to war and kill them and take over their oil. If you want an American company to be able to strip another country of its natural resources, go to war against that country. For whatever contrived reason, this country MUST be at war.

However, I refuse to celebrate war because that is exactly what we are doing when we celebrate Memorial Day. We are honoring, not a need for people to have died in wars, we are honoring the fact that people fought in elective wars. And what does ‘elective’ mean? It means we ‘chose’ to go to war. We did not have to, but because this nation is a nation of warmongers and war hawks, this is why we celebrate war. Don’t hand me that bullshit about how we are honoring our ‘war dead’ since they did not have to die. They did not have to suit up and be sent to foreign shores to die over an elective war; a war of choice. It has been stated that this country has been at war for over 220 of its 242 year history. This is what we are celebrating and believe me, that is nothing to celebrate. You people are sick and twisted who go around celebrating this shit with parades and cookouts and some more shit!

People don’t have free healthcare because our money is being spent on killing people and claiming what’s not ours to claim. We glorify guns and screech about the 2nd Amendment as if that is the only Amendment that’s worth a damn! All other Amendments pale in comparison to the 2nd Amendment especially seeing as how the 13th Amendment did not abolish slavery for if it did, there would not be over 2.3 million Black slaves sitting all up in prisons on bullshit drug charges, slaving away making shit for free to be sold by corporations and quite frankly, the 1st Amendment don’t mean shit either since what the hell is free speech these days when people can be jailed for publishing the fact that this shithole committed untold war crimes and crimes against humanity and free speech is being curtailed even as I type this? If some platform that I use to get my message out has a problem with my message, then my message gets shut down. And we all know that only whites own the platforms that people use to be heard. The news coverage is brought to us by white faces. Those who own the networks are all white. Those who own the newspapers and magazines are all white. Every media platform is owned by whites and whites have long been known for re-writing history to gloss over the vile ass shit they do and they are at it to this very day. And of course, whites are behind the celebrating of war with this Memorial Day celebration bullshit whereas we celebrate people who have died fighting in elective wars by hosting parades, throwing cookouts and watching baseball games. So go to a parade, munch down on a hotdog and then attend a baseball game, but don’t forget to take advantage of all those Memorial Day savings at the few remaining brick and mortar stores or better yet, order some plastic shit on Amazon and demand that it get to you the same fucking day because you’re celebrating war!

This bears repeating! “”Americans Are Too Stupid To Realize That America Is A Fake Ass Disneyland! Smoke and Mirrors, People! Smoke and Mirrors!” And I am quite sure that there are thousands of stupid ass Americans who will be lined up at Disneyland and at Disney World to celebrate war! And when Disneyland and Disney World close for the evening, that fake ass Cinderella will drag her tired ass to Motel 6 until her ‘magical’ shift begins the next day. Don’t fucking think about that or about the fact that those workers at Disneyland and Disney World are living like shit! Their lives are certainly not the stuff of dreams, but of nightmares of food insecurity, no healthcare, back breaking work, long hours in the heat and rain, motel living quarters and thankless Disneyland patrons.

Me? Celebrate Memorial Day? Not bloody likely!

War Is Always Such A Blessing!

War is always such a blessing
It never is distressing or depressing.
I know all too well that this is true.
War has been good for me and you.

You proudly give your lives up for the rich.
For us, life never is a bitch.
In a blaze of glory, you go out.
And really, that’s what it’s all about.

The drone operators are so brave
as they send little children to their grave.
Since the world has become a battleground,
the drums of war make a lovely throbbing sound.

Teach your sons and your daughters about their duty.
And one day, when they are dead, we’ll make a movie.
It will honor their brave and noble deeds.
The wounded, we shall see to all their needs.

Through war, we bring peace unto this earth.
And though you break out in dubious peals of mirth,
the last laugh will always be on you,
for none of what is written is ever true.

When we put a lethal weapon in your hand,
and send you to die in a foreign land,
your life means nothing, you should know,
but you never give pause, you just go.

War is not only just a blessing,
to us, it is also quite refreshing,
that you are so willingly prostituted,
and it’s all because you are just too stupid,
to understand that if it were not for you,
no drone would ever strike on cue!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing! War is a blessing because we get a day off to attend parades, eat hot dogs, drink beer and be thankful over how ‘free’ we are that we can still board an airplane after having been molested and radiated. We are free!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing! War is a blessing because we get to sit on our fat asses and forget about all the people who were killed by our sons protecting what? Freedom? We don’t have ANY freedom! Try not going through security to board an airplane and your ass will land in jail so fast, you won’t even have time to collect your wallet. Try protesting longer than your ‘permit’ allows and you’ll find your ass in jail so fast, your head will be spinning. Try lounging around on a sidewalk while homeless and see how free your ass is. You’ll be locked up before you can count to two. Try selling some un-taxed cigarettes on a New York street and if you’re a descendant of slaves, you’ll be choked to death and your killer will walk free. Try being a child descendant of slaves playing in a park with a TOY gun and you’re dead, two seconds after the official slave patrols pull up on you! Try driving down the goddamn street and you’ll end up dead, hanged in a Texas jail because you’re a Black woman. Try going to the hospital because you feel ill and you’re Black-assed, you’ll end up in the morgue. Yeah, wars are fought to protect NO freedoms that we go on and on about since we love the illusion of freedom which is why we love Disneyland and Disney World. We love our illusions! War is for other people to fight! But you’re fine because you’ve got a ticket to Disneyland!

Yes indeed, war IS ALWAYS such a blessing for the warmongers and war hawks who are in bed with the makers of the war weapons(Lockheed Martin, Boeing and Crew), you know who the warmongers are. They are AmeriKKKa’s politicians; Barack ‘Nobel Peace Prize Insane’ Obadroner, KillarE ‘Whitewater scandal Benghazigate Emailgate Big ass Jockstrap’ Clinton, Bernie “I believe in the drone program” Sanders, Combover “Build A Wall to Keep THOSE Illegals Out, Never mind us pink-assed motherfuckers, Indians? What Indians?” TrumpDump! And who makes the war machine possible? Why, our sons and soon…our daughters because the military generals have said that it is high time women saw some combat action. And guess why women are now necessary for the military. Can’t guess? You’re celebrating WHY! The ‘troops’ are dead, dying and committing suicide from being fucked up in the head after having been deployed too many goddamn times! You don’t get that? No, of course you don’t because all you know is that today gave you an excuse to sit back and indulge in too much alcohol, hot dogs and sun! Burn motherfuckers! Burn! Because one of these days, your turn is coming. So, eat, drink and be merry since you don’t really give a damn for the war dead because if you did, the last thing you would be doing in honor of their memory, is eating, drinking and sitting at a goddamn parade!

And when the troops do make it back to America from having whored themselves out to the warmongers and war hawks and they need some anti-suicide help, where is your ass after you finish sitting at the parade grounds, stuffing your face on hotdogs? You are nowhere to be found to man the suicide hotlines for those fucked up in the head soldiers that make it back.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold, Please!”

The VA, has been swamped with calls since opening in 2007. The volume increased from fewer than 10,000 in 2007 to more than 500,000 last year, according to a recent Government Accountability Office report.

A 2010 calculation by the VA estimates that 22 veterans kill themselves each day. The VA, which has not updated that estimate, says the hotline “rescues” 30 veterans from suicide each day.

Some workers handle only one to five calls each day and leave before their shifts end even though phone lines have gotten busier, the emails say. As a result, 35% to 50% of the calls roll over to back-up centers where workers have less training to deal with the emotional problems of former service members.

So, the people who are trained to deal with potential suicides handle only one to five calls a day? For real? And after having listened to one suicidal former service member, they are out the door and oh what a great day it is, eh? Then, those who are on backup are sitting somewhere looking cross-eyed for lack of training or know-how in dealing with the ’emotional problems’ that they are hearing from the former servicemen. Go figure!

You sit somewhere on your stupid ass and think that “thank you for your service” gets the job done when you know damn well that a fucked up in the head veteran needs more than your worthless ass ‘thank yous’. What the hell are they supposed to do with a “thank you?” Cure their mental illness with it? House themselves with it? Stop drinking because of it? Take it and use it as a prosthetic? You brain dead, dumb as all hell Americans make me sick with your reasoning that you should always be able to take the easy way out. As long as you don’t have to suit up and kill someone you’ve never met, what’s the big deal? Well the big deal is that this is yet another reason why you are going to pay for this shit. This is why your shit is continuously getting flooded and hit with tornadoes and some more shit because you don’t give a damn about anybody besides your own worthless hide. I am SO very glad that millions of you are sitting somewhere moaning and wailing over the fact that life as you know it has ended. And I am SO very glad that millions more of you are soon to join them and so believe me, you have absolutely nothing to celebrate! I guarantee it! Fuck you and fuck your Memorial Day celebrations! They and you are meaningless!

Cancer Causing 5G Technology Coming To A Flooded Out Tent Near You!

I am pretty sure that most of you are aware that 5G cellphone technology is about to be rolled out since you, apparently, have no problem with getting cancer so long as you can stream bullshit movies and play dumbass video games and fight on Facebook and Twitter with blazing fast speed. Corporations know that the average person is stupid as hell and will embrace the cause of their own demise if it will get them blazing fast download speeds so that they can in all actuality, do nothing, but do it fast. Companies are fighting to be the first to bring 5G technology to as many brain dead cretins as they can, but those same companies are not telling their brain dead customers that along with blazing fast download speeds comes blazing fast cancer diagnoses, especially melanoma diagnoses. If your stupid ass has not seen a cancer patient, then let me clue you in, they are writhing in mortal agony from a pain so fierce that even truckloads of morphine cannot stop the pain. They literally scream themselves to death and that is what’s coming for you! And for those of you who are of the Caucasian persuasion, I’d think twice about embracing 5G technology if I were you because even though that monstrous shit is going to kill us all, many of you are going to go first thanks to the fact that you’ve no melanin to counter the waves of radiation that will pour through your pallid skin.

Those of us who are most hated by you have some layer of protection thanks to the melanin in our skin, but even so, that will be no match for continuous waves of radiation pouring into our bodies from 5G technology that wireless companies are trying to throw up everywhere. And newsfuckingflash, don’t think for one minute that this technology can be thrown up in ghettos and hoods and still be received by you and not cause you any problems because 5G is the 5th generation of cellular technology and needs shorter waves to function at a high speed. So that shit’s going to need to sit right outside your home; not over in the hood or down by way of the ghetto, but right beside your house. And the whole entire time that it is sitting right outside your door, it will be fucking your ass up and that of your children. You whites are already eyeball deep sitting all up in Dermatology clinics nationwide, now just think of how many more of you are about to join your fellow pale skins. I’ll tellya, millions. Now think on that!

When Is 5G Coming to the US? (Updated for 2019)
5G isn’t yet widely available, but it’s coming!

US 5G Rollout

Verizon: Fixed and mobile 5G is live in a few areas
AT&T: Mobile 5G for select customers in 19 cities; wider coverage in 2019
T-Mobile: Commercial 5G launch in second half of 2019; nationwide coverage expected in 2020
Sprint: Deploying 5G to four markets on May 31
U.S. Cellular: 5G services coming in second half of 2019
C Spire: Fixed 5G services in Mississippi
Charter: Testing 5G, but no solid rollout plans
Starry: Fixed 5G currently in Boston, Denver, LA, New York City, and Washington DC

So, why aren’t you being told the ‘bad’ in that 5G not only causes cell damage, but it also causes melatonin disruption, but actually damages your entire DNA structure? Because who wants to hear the bad news, right? It is not profitable to tell the public that your product is about to fuck them up. That’s bad for business. Just let it fuck ’em up and deal with the fallout after a hefty payday.

5G causes skin cancer and will greatly increase skin cancer rates. 5G is a boondoggle technology and those who invest in it will lose money. The rapid damaging health effects will soon generate a huge number of lawsuits which will bring the technology to an end but not before millions will get the dreaded cancer diagnosis.

The Dangers Of 5G – 11 Reasons To Be Concerned
DNA single and double strand breaks.
oxidative damage.
disruption of cell metabolism.
increased blood brain barrier permeability.
melatonin reduction.

To get those blazing fast download and streaming speeds, are you willing to endure skin cancer, DNA damage, increased blood brain barrier permeability, melatonin reduction and so much more of the like? Is it really worth it?

Let’s not also forget that in 2011 the World Health Organization (WHO) classified radio frequency radiation as a possible 2B carcinogen.
And current cellphone technology has already been found to cause cancer according to the $25 million National Toxicology Program.

Corporations show you in every way, every single day that they don’t give a damn about you and especially those that are hellbent on shoving this 5G shit on us. You can even get free 5G internet from C Spire by becoming a 5G Internet Hub Home(and cancer hub), which is where you agree to let C Spire attach 5G equipment to your house which is then related to your neighbors, thus extending their network(while extending cancer diagnoses). See, this is what I mean when I stated previously that this shit cannot be placed in certain ‘areas’ and just affect ‘those’ people, it’s got to be placed right in your damn face in order to work. So yes indeed, you have got to have your melanoma inducing technology placed right outside your home, killing you while giving you what you think you need; blazing fast download and streaming speeds. But see how fast you forget all about that shit when you are screaming in agony over your melanoma issues. That blazing fast speed ain’t gonna seem worth it then, will it?

C Spire is so ready to kill you for money, that they will attach the cause of your demise right onto your house and so wouldn’t it just be wonderful to have that shit attached to your house so that it could generate more money for C Spire while they kill you, your spouse and your children? Great setup for the company, C Spire, so that you can get lightning fast or blazing fast download and streaming speeds. It’s SO worth it, ain’t it? But since people are too stupid for words and think that this is a great thing, the only saving grace for the rest of us is the fact that our infrastructure is getting more fucked up by the nanosecond thanks to good ole Mother Nature in ALL her destructive glory! Along comes Mother Nature and all that shit is going to float down the goddamn street along with your house and your vehicles. Your cellphones will not be working because the towers will be floating also. When the mighty rivers rise and flood the banks of nearby cities and towns, what use will your blazing fast download speeds be to you? Why don’t you ask people who have already been impacted by wild fires, firenadoes and the list is endless?

‘I expect a zombie to walk out.’ Life in Paradise, 6 months after the Camp fire

It hasn’t been easy. Returnees must cope with inconveniences large and small. The simplest errands turn into lengthy chores, as dump trucks and demolition crews snarl traffic. Everyone in Paradise uses bottled water; they can’t drink out of the tap because the town’s plumbing system has turned into a “toxic cocktail” contaminated with benzene.

This is life in Paradise, six months after the worst wildfire in California history destroyed most of this town of 26,000 and killed 85 people. The Johns are among the few thousand who’ve returned to Paradise, and the neighboring communities of Magalia and Concow, trying to re-create what they once had in a place they no longer recognize.

Those people who lived in Paradise California are, for the most part, putting what remains of their homes up for sale for the next unsuspecting dumb schmuck to deal with raging wildfires that are sure to come. They actually believe that because homes in California are much sort after that there will be folks clamoring to buy property in an area where they cannot even drink the water because it is tainted with benzene, a toxin that causes cancer. I wonder, has C Spire been there yet in the hopes of attaching 5G technology to one of the few remaining homes in Paradise, CA? Hell no! There’s not enough profit in bringing 5G technology to a town that’s been basically destroyed.

Yeah, take your 5G technology there. I fucking dare you!

I wonder if Sprint, T-Mobile, Verizon, U.S. Cellular and others are clamoring to head to Paradise, CA to deploy their 5G technology first. I mean, those who once lived in Paradise are in desperate need of everything. Just ask Abigail Lopez who is still fighting with her insurance company to get her house fixed up. And let us not forget that there was some recent major flooding in Iowa, Michigan, Texas, Indiana, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Minnesota, just to name a few and today’s headlines don’t bode well for millions.

US weather: Nation’s midsection braces for rain, wind and hail as dozens of tornadoes are reported
This is peak tornado season

The Plains have been pounded by strong winds, with at least 34 tornadoes reported since Friday morning across the central US, including Kansas, Nebraska and Texas.

Isolated tornado risks were possible across central and eastern Nebraska and in central and northern Kansas, the federal Storm Prediction Center warned. Wind gusts of up to 70 mph were likely, it said.

Texans are scrambling for cover Saturday as reports of tornadoes roll in and much of the central US readies for heavy rain, strong winds and large hail.

More than 70 million Americans are under the threat of severe weather from Texas to southern Minnesota, CNN meteorologist Haley Brink said. That total on Sunday jumps to 80 million under threat as storms are predicted to move into the Great Lakes area.

A tornado destroyed two homes Saturday morning in Comanche County, Oklahoma.

Hopefully, that tornado destroyed ANY and ALL 5G technology that had already been installed and so again, I have Mother Nature to thank for making it extremely difficult for corporations to continue their master plan of destroying us with shit we fucking want despite the fact that it is going to cause us to die and for what? Blazing fast download speeds? Seriously???!!! I hope that Mother Nature continues to shut that shit down because nothing says “Your bottom line is fucked!” like a tornado tearing their shit to shreds and dumping it where it will. Let ’em place that goddamn shit on poles everywhere and their shit along with those poles are going to be lying, scattered all over the damn place. And when they reconnect that shit, it will only be a matter of time before it is back to twirling through the damn sky only to bust somebody in their fucking head when it lands.

To the corporations that are hellbent on killing us, go right ahead and put your 5G technology into operation and Mother Nature will be more than happy to include your shit when she starts fucking shit up. When those tornadoes go ripping through cities, towns and rural areas, there goes your fucking 5G towers. I hope Mother Nature makes continuously having to put your killer shit back up becomes so expensive that you have no choice but to call it quits since we ALL know that ‘humans’ are just too stupid for words since they have, throughout history, embraced their own damn demise just as they are embracing this latest killer shit to come down the pike. We were made aware of the fact that doctors were getting cancer from cellphones decades ago and what did we do? Why we embraced the same technology that led to brain cancer in many doctors. In fact, we so embraced that killer shit, that corporations are counting on the fact that we will ignore this latest killer technology to come down the pike and that we will die with a ‘smartphone’ glued to the damn head while screeching and wailing from the pain of cancer. It’s like the 40 year cigarette smoker screaming in the agony of cancer pain while also yelling for yet another cigarette because he is just so addicted to what the fuck is killing him in the most agonizing way possible. I actually witnessed that happening. A man’s lung had been removed thanks to lung cancer and of course he was told not to smoke anymore, but he was still running around asking anyone within the sound of his voice for a cigarette and the last time I saw him, he was howling in agony as he was being carted away in an ambulance.

Why I sit here and preach to my goddamn self, I will never know and yet, that is exactly what I am doing since so-called ‘humans’ are too stupid for words! I can only hope that Mother Nature will continue to do her thing!

I am quite sure that car alarms are sounding all over the place and it is most definitely NOT a false alarm. The next time you buy a car, do a thorough inspection because you just might end up with one of these.

And continue!

Goodness gracious! Someone call Trump! Those people need FEMA funds right now! Oh, my bad! He is busy on Twitter. Never mind then. Raging flood waters, carry on!

It is quite apparent to me that Mother Nature is our ONLY hope since thanks to her, most of us will eventually be sitting all up in tents as we continuously try and find higher ground on which to place said tent! Thank you Mother Nature! Do YOUR thing!

Dr. Bramhall, since you requested some pictures of what 5G technology looks like, I am posting some pictures in the main post. We need to know what this killer shit looks like because it needs to be avoided at all cost. Not everyone wants to give up their right to exist just because some dumbasses want blazing fast internet speeds.

I’ve found that it comes in many different shapes and sizes. I will post as many as I can find. This mess is killing those folks and many don’t even care!

And another one!

This particular 5G shit, the residents are demanding that it be taken down.

And this one!

We need a massive and sustained movement against the installation of this shit! Time spent in jail pales in comparison to what this mess is doing to us.

And yet another one!

This is one that some dumbass person had installed in their home. Unfortunately, if they have children, they are dead people walking. This is just too sad for words!

And I am not quite finished!

Those of you who are concerned about 5G danger, keep on the lookout for this shit!

5G has a NIMBY problem

For 5G boosters, the benefits of installing the wireless technology are obvious: It allows delivery of super-fast internet speeds. But the nimble technology is connected by not-so-nimble infrastructure. To hook up the “small cells” that power 5G grids, wireless providers have to install thick wires and poles and antennae on nearly every block they want to cover, outfitted with equipment that is about the size of a large backpack.

It’s not just that 5G requires a lot of gear, which alone can provoke the not-in-my-backyard backlash that puts a stop to all sorts of projects. It’s also that some people really don’t like it when they see it.

Unfortunately, the people who have a problem with 5G technology in this article care more about how ‘ugly’ the technology is more so than they care about its dangers. Never once is the danger alluded to, just the fact that they think it ‘uglies’ their neighborhood. However, it would appear that 5G is going to have another hurdle to overcome; the NIMBY problem.

Dr. Bramhall, I hope this helps.

“It was really tough this morning when I couldn’t go next door to buy a cup of coffee because I didn’t have the money in my account!”

That is the toughest thing about not receiving a paycheck while the government is partially shut down? The inability to go next door to Starbucks to buy a cup of coffee? And some people are actually wondering why the stupid Americans are not out in the streets by the hundreds of thousands demanding an end to the government shutdown. This is why. When not being able to buy a cup of Starbucks coffee is the ultimate insult, how can anyone expect nothing but this from a group of people who are so embarrassingly stupid, it should be against the law?

The average price of a Starbucks drink in the U.S. is $2.75, but New York City is the most expensive location coming in at $3.15 for a tall cappuccino. And if you go for a decadent seasonal beverage with all the bells and whistles, it can run you over$5.00.
“In my freezer, as you can see, I have no meat here,” Belkys Colon, who works for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban and Development, told Inside Edition. “I have pasta but they expired.”
“I’m just sad because maybe I’m gonna get thrown out of my apartment because I haven’t paid my rent,” she said. “I don’t know what to do.”
This woman works for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD) and she has no idea what to do since she is about to become evicted and these are the very people who are to see to it that poor, vulnerable people are housed and do not face evictions???!!! The people who are eligible for HUD assistance call such as this when they need advice and so is anyone still not understanding why HUD is absolutely useless? With employees like Belkys Colon working for HUD, I need look no further. Every department of the federal government is absolutely useless!
A lapse in pay could result in agents being late on other bills, which could in turn prevent them from securing or renewing security clearances as a result of the rigorous financial checks that the agency performs regarding its agents on a routine basis.
Even those who work as FBI agents are moaning and whining about how the lack of a paycheck could affect their security clearance. Well, since you know this and you know that there have been other government shutdowns, why aren’t you more prepared? Not one of us ‘regular’ citizens should gnash our teeth over your supposed plight since it is dogs like you who enforce fascist laws against law abiding citizens which led to this:
According to FBI documents, one of the purposes of the COINTELPRO program was to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize the activities of the Black nationalists”. They wanted to prevent the rise of a black “messiah” and Martin Luther King Jr. had been amongst the candidates until his assassination in 1968 when the attention shifted to Huey P. Newton. Of the 295 documented actions taken by COINTELPRO to disrupt Black groups, 233 were directed against the Black Panther Party.

Yeah! Like I’m about to give a shit about your lack of a paycheck because the actions of the FBI led to the imprisonment, torture and assassination of many Black people who were only about the business of trying to lift their people out of poverty and to level the playing field so that Black people would no longer be underneath the boot of Jim Crow, racism, bigotry; the whole nine yards. And now that Trump and congress has thrown you worthless, lousy motherfuckers under the bus, you want to wail and whine about your fucking security clearances? About the fact that you’re now ‘junk’ status? Go fuck yourselves! You are finding that you are just as dispensable as the rest of us and you ain’t fucking liking it none. Well, suck it up and deal! That’s what we’ve had to do thanks to the likes of shits like you at the FBI! I’m fucking laughing at you worthless shits! Lose your goddamn security clearance! What meaning has your security clearance for us? A gnat couldn’t wipe its ass on the amount of meaning your security clearance or lack thereof has on me. I am so glad the government is shutdown, you wastes of skin have no idea and I hope the shutdown continues into perpetuity. Take that and shove it up your, hopefully, security clearance-less ass!

Apparently, the only requirement to be a federal worker is to have the ability to take crayon and coloring book and color ‘inside’ the lines. If you can do that, then you’re hired. Fucking babies could do your jobs and with most likely, better results. And it is quite obvious that even those with federal jobs have no sense when it comes to having a rainy day fund. And so is it any wonder that Americans cannot come up with even 6 months of living expenses for when shit hits the fan? They cannot even come up with $500 for even a minor emergency because they’ve got to head to Starbucks everyday for a goddamn cup of coffee that they’re now whining about not having the ability to wrap their stupid hands around. When even FBI agents cannot even keep enough money in the bank or even in one of their funky ass socks to enable them to keep their security clearance because it is not as if this is the first partial government shutdown, then we’ve obviously got some dumb ass federal employees.

I have not one ounce of pity for these fools, not one! And anyone with two eyes and more than two brain cells connected should not have any pity for them because they are too stupid and useless for words. And don’t even get me started on TSA agents. Those fools on average ‘earn’ $30,000 a year and that’s before taxes and so they are basically taking home what amounts to roughly $24,000 and depending on their family size, that would qualify some for food stamps and instead of leaving those airports and seeking a different job, they are working double shifts for no pay.  How incredibly stupid is that? They can ‘earn’ that paltry amount at Walmart. So, we now know how important TSA and FBI agents are. We know how knowledgeable those morons are who work out of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. No wonder the government is absolutely useless.

 

And now, they are trying to shame Americans who don’t work for the government by stating that there is a divide between those who are federal workers and those who aren’t because those who aren’t are going on about their business, unaffected by the partial government shutdown. Why should we give a fuck? Those useless, stupid assholes don’t do shit for us! As far as I’m concerned, the government can just remain shut because what ‘good’ has the FBI done any descendant of slaves? None! What ‘good’ has the Department of Homeland Security done any descendant of slaves? None! And all the Section 8 housing is going to immigrants and so what good has the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development done for descendants of slaves? None. Because if you consider putting us in urban ghettos, doing us a fucking favor, then you’re just as stupid, useless and moronic as federal workers. Sink motherfuckers! Sink! Join the rest of ‘US’ in  this Titanic. It’s about time your asses were brought down to our level. Enjoy!

Count me on the ‘OBLIVIOUS’ side!
The shutdown’s day-to-day impact on Americans — both federal employees and the people who depend on the services they provide — shifts radically from workplace to workplace and neighbor to neighbor. On one side of the divide, the shutdown is inescapable; on the other, it is all but invisible.

Also count me on the ‘invisible’ to it side because why should I care that federal workers, who have excellent benefits and get an exceptional number of paid holidays, are now either working without receiving a check because they have been deemed, ‘essential’ or who are not working because they are not ‘essential’? If you are not ‘essential’, then you’ve no business taking my tax dollars to pay your mortgage/rent, utilities, car notes, insurance, medical and food bills. Why are you even collecting a salary if you are non-essential? What the fuck are you doing every day if you are not necessary to a ‘functioning’ government which at this time, is not functioning at all? And in fact, the entire government is non-essential because seeing as how it’s shutdown, it hasn’t negatively impacted my life, nor that of millions of other Americans.  I can almost see the ‘Libertarian Party’ hosting a party to end all parties since this partial government shutdown because this just feeds into what they have been saying all along in that the fucking United States government is a useless entity that was designed to steal our money and give fuck all in return. Ask Shirley Henderson what the U.S. government is doing for her!

Yeah, this is a bad time to be poor and elderly and living in a HUD funded building.

The government shutdown means that the long-leaking roof of San Jose Manor II Apartments won’t be replaced anytime soon, says Alma Ballard, who oversees the building for low-income senior citizens in Jacksonville, Florida.

“That’s definitely not going to happen,” said Ballard, executive director of the nonprofit Family Housing Management, who said that water has at times dripped into some residents’ rooms.

House Democrats have begun investigating HUD’s management of the shutdown, criticizing the department’s “failure” to salvage the expiring contracts ahead of time and questioning what happened to $400 million in backup funding for the Section 8 rental assistance program.

Shirley Henderson is having a serious roof leak and I haven’t seen one goddamn GoFundMe page set up to assist her and the rest of the seniors who have been impacted by this latest partial government shutdown. And an investigation has commenced to try and locate $400 million that no one seems to be able to locate that should have been used as backup funding. Here is a suggestion. Go look at what fixtures Ben Carson has had added to his HUD office. I hear tell that Carson and wife, Candy, have been spending our money like they just won the lottery.

This is exactly why we have a government; to steal our money and do nothing that benefits the people the money was stolen from. And yet, all I hear are the moans, whines and wails from those who ‘work’ for the federal government about how they can’t pay their credit card bills, the car payment, car insurance, yada, yada, yada. Go ask your bosses who have stolen ALL our money to ‘give over’ and let you have some of their ill gotten gains or better yet, here is a novel concept. Live within YOUR means. I don’t have a car payment because I SAVE up and buy my cars OUTRIGHT! I have managed to purchase, not one, not two, but three vehicles and I don’t owe a penny on either one of them. I don’t have credit cards, not one and somehow, I manage to get by. I also don’t have a gym membership at ‘Fitness Pro’ because…..and wait for it….I purchased my own treadmill (without the use of credit cards) and if the weather is good, I go outside and walk!!! Can you believe it? And it works! And though I don’t drink coffee, if I did, guess what….AGAIN? I would buy a can of cheap ass coffee and ‘perc’ it my damn self because I am a firm believer in non-conformity. I don’t have to be seen with a Starbucks container in my hand. Fuck Starbucks! But apparently, Starbucks is the very breath in your body! Well, fine. Go on into Starbucks and take along with you that worthless piece of paper that was given to you by your bosses explaining about the shutdown. Maybe Starbucks will take pity on you and give you a cup of their cheapest coffee. At least you will still look like you can pay your damn bills!

Bill also wrote this comment on another blog that I think is extremely relevant here.

“The whole sick charade begins with children’s books about barnyard animals living happy lives from cover to cover, the meal that isn’t a meal unless it has a meat entree, the propagandists in the advertising world, the willingness of consumers to suspend disbelief… No mention of the factory death camps that kill by the billions (trillions of fish at the seafood corner of the stupormarket).”

And this one!

Meat is death.”


Bill is an intellectual genius; a brilliant, highly educated intellectual and a caring and concerned human who believes that ALL creatures, those deemed human and animal should live. One should not be killed and consumed for their parts by the other for what that is consumed dead is healthy for the living? And yet mass propaganda campaigns are waged day in and day out by those who make a fortune from getting humans to view animals as a ‘THING’ to be slaughtered and placed on their dinner plate for consumption while other ‘animals’ have been slated for their enjoyment as pets. And those ‘animals’ that are viewed as pets would never be slaughtered and placed on the plate by its owner. Oh no! Never in a million years must Fido or Fluffy ever be considered ‘food’. But since a cow, pig, Atlantic Croaker or Haddock, chicken and turkey have been rendered valueless as pets and are raised in areas far remote from humans, they are fair ‘game’ for killing and eating.

Those who brainwash us and lead us down the primrose path know exactly what it is they do. They are relentless in their pursuit to gain riches at the expense of both the land animals and marine life butchered for human consumption and they know full well the toll on human bodies this will take and their friends in the pharmaceutical industry also make out like bandits in their laboratories concocting toxic ‘prescriptions’ that also undermine what little health is left in their patients.

You have seen the commercials for the prescriptions you take to combat the diseases you acquire from eating dead animal products and byproducts. They are damn near as bad as the disease and can also cause death.

Here are the top 10 health concerns linked to meat consumption.
  • Heart Disease.
  • Cancer.
  • Stroke. Because meat causes blockages in blood vessels, it’s no surprise that it leads to strokes. …
  • Diabetes. …
  • Obesity. …
  • Harmful Cholesterol. …
  • Acne. …
  • Erectile Dysfunction.

We, those of us who have decided that we don’t want heart disease, we don’t want cancer, stroke, diabetes, obesity, high cholesterol, acne and the rest and some of this we know that we can prevent, have chosen life over death. We have chosen the path that leads to an animal’s right to live just as we believe in a human’s right to live. And make no mistake, we did not choose to not consume dead animals merely for our health. We chose to not eat dead animals because we are ‘human’. We have a heart and we believe that all beings; animal, plant and human have the right to co-exist and one not be consumed by the other for its choice parts, filet mignon, porterhouse, rib-eye, bacon, ham, spareribs, crab legs, lobster tails, haddock fillet. What right have we as ‘humans’, as horrible as we treat other ‘humans’, to determine the fate of any sentient beings? We should not and yet we do so and thanks to apathy and complacency, our compliance and tacit consent is taken for granted in the slaughtering of animals for human consumption, not to mention the fact that we are loaded down, car deep at the McDonald’s drive-through window, Burger King’s, and Wendy’s as well and don’t even get me started on the All-You-Can-Eat buffet. Millions of Americans alone, are so obese, seat belts have added extensions. Airplane seats are having to be widened, scales at our doctor’s offices are having to be replaced with scales that weigh animals. And this is all because we just cannot understand that we are what we eat. There are programs on TV that showcase thousands of people needing gastric bypass surgery because they are unable to get out of bed since they weigh 600 lbs of mostly dead animals and other processed foods. Look it up! It’s called “My 600 Pound Life!” This shit’s not funny!

 

Yeah! That’s YOU! Because you ARE what you eat!

Me? I’d rather have this!

 

 

And I’ll leave you with a little poem that I wrote. Something else for you to ponder.

 

Don’t Mess With Fido!

Don’t mess with Fido and I love Fifi’s “Meow!”

But I don’t mind if you slaughter India’s sacred cow.

Sentient being or not, that pig’s going on my plate.

And little does she know, with a knife, she’s got a date.

Humans think they’re decent, compassionate and kind,

But when it comes to certain animals, to their suffering they are blind.

Thinking for themselves is just something they won’t do.

Why they’ve got a brain? They haven’t got a clue.

They’ll put cashmere on a dog and feed Fluffy, ‘Fancy Feast’.

But over the plight of barnyard animals, they don’t care in the least.

String that animal up and gut it with a blade.

As it was led to slaughter, so what if it looked afraid?

It was just a stupid cow and a pig should know its fate.

One was bound to end up bacon and the other, a rib-eye steak.

But my dog, you don’t touch and my cat is family.

What happens to cows and pigs? I have no sympathy.

The fish, deep in the ocean are caught up in a net,

and will end up as sushi, they’re not a cute and cuddly pet.

God gave man dominion and said, “You own all of this!”

But instead, we place our sins on a serpent’s vengeful hiss.

If we have freedom of choice, then it is we who choose to harm

every bird in the air, every creature in the sea and every animal on the farm.

Another Day, Another Gorgeous Salad! No Dead Animal On My Plate! No Boiled Lobster On My Plate! What’s On Yours?

I recently blogged about the fact that I don’t eat dead animals that are dead because they were slaughtered for ‘human’ consumption. And I let pictures do the talking for me. Consider this blog to be Part 2.

Below, is a delicious salad of lettuce, tomatoes, green onions, mushrooms, cucumbers and green peppers and what a joy to look at it is, not to mention how good it tastes. And the best part is, no animal was harmed killed in the making of this salad.

Beautiful, vibrant colors just brimming with health benefits and begging me to dig in.

 

Another trip to the grocery store to showcase my point and so we come to this!

Dead marine life awaiting your pleasure. Salmon, shrimp, wild caught and farm raised. Let me ask you something. How would you like it if someone scooped you up in a net in order for you to end up on someone’s dinner plate?

Dead marine life galore. Come take a look and make your selection.

All nice and spread out for observation, priced and sectioned for you to make your choice.

And look at the yellow sign in the corner. It reads, “fresh!”. How fresh can a supermarket piece of salmon be? Who in hell knows how long it took to get to the supermarket from when it was hauled out of the ocean, cut up, sectioned, and put on display for you to make your selection? Two hours? Three hours? A day? Two days? A week? Two? You tell me! Fresh, my ass!

Oh just look at that! Dead shrimp! Crabs that were killed by being boiled to death! And now you get to take them home and finish tearing them to pieces to get at the ‘meat’.

Yessiree! Whole Dungeness crabs COOKED! Meaning boiled to death to feed you! Why don’t they post the truth?

“These crabs were boiled alive until they died and now we present to you, a crab feast. Enjoy!” Oh no, you’ll never find a sign stating the truth. Just, “cooked crabs.” It sounds better like, “cooked steak.” Doesn’t it?

How long to boil live Dungeness crab?
Place the crabs in a large pot of cold water and bring to the boil slowly. Boil for 7-8 minutes per lb of crab. 3. Remove crabs from pot carefully with long tongs – they’ll be hot. Rinse it in some cold water. : paleoflourish.com/how-to-cook-dungeness-crab
For the love of !!!!!

And here, we have the ‘ring of shrimp’, cocktail sauce included. All ready for you to dip and eat!

 

Let me just state that I enjoyed champagne for years too numerous to count and so I know the difficulties of letting go, I do. But I even braved the champagne aisle to take a picture to show you that this aisle would have numerous bottles gone if I was still drinking champagne. I used to have flutes galore and even brandy snifters out the wazoo when I would drink with acquaintances who came over and wanted something a bit stronger than champagne. Courvoisier cognac was my other drink of choice, but I’ve given that up as well. The thrift store was happy to see me coming, handing over boxes of flutes and brandy snifters.

I gave this up and believe me, a champagne flute filled with champagne was for me what a baby’s bottle of formula is to a baby.

And if I can give up on champagne, you can give this up. They both are bad for us.

What the appeal is for that, I just don’t get. And I am SO glad!

So folks, I am not trying to moralize here or sermonize, I am just attempting to get you to take better care of yourselves as we all should. And one thing we can do to help the situation as it pertains to our health is to be more proactive in what we eat and drink. It really does matter and if you do decide to try it, baby steps to start out with would be just fine.  There used to be an advertisement on the buses about getting moving as in exercising and it read, “Just do it!” Try it, you just might like the results because believe me, eating dead meat for decades is going to have you looking like dead meat. On the other hand, eating this will not have the same effect. I promise you.

What’s unhealthy looking about that? And no ”animal’ was killed.

Finally, a reminder. You ARE what you eat!

 

 

 

 

 

This Is Why I Don’t Eat Meat And As The Saying Goes, “A Picture Speaks A Thousand Words.”

I will forgo my usual cussing shitstorm and let the pictures do the talking for me, but while I was out and about today driving people to the grocery store and to their appointments, I had to assist an elderly lady into the grocery store and I thought I’d just take some pictures of the animal products that were for sale. The pictures are so gross, they fair turn my stomach, they do. The ‘meat’ section is SO disgusting, I avoid it usually. But I wanted to make a point and so, I toughed it out. 

Why oh why would you want to put something this disgusting looking inside your body and not expect your body to fuck you up? Oh damn! My bad! I promised not to cuss. I’ll just let the pictures speak for me.

How in the world can that look appetizing to you?

Just looking at that makes me want to throw up and yet I have to haul around shit like that because even though I try and get people to understand that they “are what they eat,” many tell me that it is cheaper to buy this mess than to buy fresh fruits and vegetables and though this may be true to some extent, I still think that more of an effort could be made to try and eat healthier. I am not rich and yet I am able to buy fresh lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, green peppers, onions, squash, kale, spinach, turnips, apples, pears, berries and though I hate bananas, I still buy them for the potassium. What I must confess to is the fact that I love nothing more than a fresh salad. With balsamic vinaigrette, oh yummmmmm.  

There is nothing disgusting about that whatsoever! And I eat this every day and love it!

And if this next picture does not speak volumes, I don’t know what will!

A beautiful, colorful salad next to “Oh my gawd! RAW ground ‘beef!” UGGGHHHH!!!!

How can you eat that shit on the right? Because I need a ‘barf bag’ just looking at it!

This is appetizing to you???!!! Seriously???!!

So, are you ready to eat some ‘animal products’ now? An animal was bred for this, slaughtered in a most vile manner and then its parts were strewn here and there in order for this part to go in this bin, another part to go into yet a different bin and yet, if someone were to do this to your dog or cat, you’d be calling the cops, quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry. But that cow and that pig and even bison and chickens are fair ‘game’, eh? This is why your medicine cabinet is full of pills. This is why you are taking anti-cholesterol medications and high blood pressure pills and a whole slew of other prescriptions because if this is what you eat, this is what you are, death warmed over.

So, what’s it going to be? This?

 

Or this?

This was just one meat department. Can you imagine how many animals were slaughtered in order for their ‘meat’ to end up here? Oh gawd, just look at that. It’s sickening!

Bon Appétit

 

 

 

 

Michelle Obama Slanders Black Men in Her Book, Adds to the Obama Family’s Long Anti-Black Tradition Danny Haiphong, Black Agenda Report Contributor

 

Once again, Danny Haiphong, tells it like is.

Nowhere is this clearer than in the very words that have come out of the mouths of both members of the Obama “power couple.” At a recent speaking event at the Barclay’s Center in New York City, Michelle Obama had this to say about Barack Obama:

“I had never met a black dude like Barack Obama. Not only his background and where he had traveled and who his parents were and he was always very introspective and he had been a community organizer. I hadn’t met a Harvard black dude who had been a community organizer in neighborhoods on the far south side where most people in the firm didn’t know those neighborhoods, he had been all up in those neighborhoods and those churches. So he understood the community in a full way but he was not arrogant, he was humble. I also liked the way he treated others.” – Michelle Obama

Her father and her brother are both pieces of shit? So, she was finally impressed by meeting a Kenyan born asswipe whose mother was a pasty-assed parasite and whose father was a black-assed motherfucker from Kenya who traveled all over the place whereupon it has been reported that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii and since there are hardly any descendants of slaves born in Hawaii, this coonhead bitch sat up and took notice of what was to become a drone striking, warmongering, criminal piece of filthy, dirty shit?

Why doesn’t this bitch ask those whom her husband drone struck over in Yemen, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan, Libya and Somalia if they’ve “ever met a black dude like Barack Obama?” Because I am quite sure that the people who were introduced to drones by Obama did not get that “he was humble” as opposed to an arrogant, conceited, war criminal who should be behind bars for the war crimes that he has committed for the eight long years his criminal ass sat in the Oval Office.

Obama dropped 26,171 bombs in 2016. What a bloody end to Obama’s reign

 The US dropped nearly three bombs every hour, 24 hours a day. The Obama administration dropped at least 26,171 bombs. This means that every day last year, the US military blasted combatants or civilians overseas with 72 bombs; that’s three bombs every hour, 24 hours a day. 

While most of these air attacks were in Syria and Iraq, US bombs also rained down on people in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Somalia and Pakistan. That’s seven majority-Muslim countries.

One bombing technique that President Obama championed is drone strikes. As drone-warrior-in-chief, he spread the use of drones outside the declared battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq, mainly to Pakistan and Yemen. Obama authorized over 10 times more drone strikes than George W Bush, and automatically painted all males of military age in these regions as combatants, making them fair game for remote controlled killing.

That bitch, Michelle Obama, is lauding a murdering piece of filth that should not even be able to lay claim to having been the first Black president. He is not of ‘descendants of slaves’ and that is what should qualify him to be the first Black president and since he was not a ‘descendant of slaves’, then he was not the first Black president. That Afrisite, which is the product of an African and a pasty-assed parasite, does not have our slave heritage. There has been no first Black president. Just because whitey pasty ass says so, does not make it so and it ain’t so!

An old dog has trouble learning new tricks, especially if that dog is on the leash of the monopoly capitalist class. Michelle Obama continues to insult Black men because it is advantageous to the family. Barack and Michelle Obama are raking in hundreds of millions from books, speaking tours, and investments in gentrification in cities such as Chicago. When it comes to imperialism, it pays to be anti-Black. Ant-Black tirades are profitable, especially for a family currently building a post-Presidential fortune for diligently serving and directing the forces that incarcerate, murder, and impoverish Black Americans across the nation.

Descendants of slaves are actually buying this bitch’s book and lauding the hell out of it as though she is some sort of saint that walks on water. This bitch despises, loathes, hates and has nothing but contempt for descendants of slaves and they don’t even have the sense god gave a goat to see that. You fools will take up with the devil if he has a Black complexion. You fall for any and everything and why I waste my time on you ignorant assholes, I’ll never know because it really is a waste of time trying to get through to you and yet there are people out in the trenches daily trying to undo the shit you get yourselves caught up in because you are just too stupid for words. You will pick up what your enemy has put down before you because you cannot see anything beyond the color of the skin of the piece of filth that whitey pasty ass has placed before you to bamboozle your stupid ass!

The book this bitch put out is titled ‘Becoming….a white man’s warwhore and loving it’! That should be the goddamn title. And as for Barack Obama being humble? Seriously? She done got that fucking shit twisted! Obama is why we have Trump sitting somewhere racist and crazy as hell because people of ALL stripes took a chance and voted for what they thought would be change and look at what they got. People want to claim that whites did nothing to usher in Barack Obama, but that would be a lie because 13% of the population cannot a president, elect. Whites put aside their prejudices and voted for this pile of shit and when he spit in their face just as he did in ALL our faces, Trump is the result. Yes indeed, Michelle’s ‘humble, black dude’, fooled us all!

 

Behold, The Face Of Evil!

They picked him very carefully as all the world can see.
He’s easy on the eye and with a great personality.

Those who went before him set the stage for what would come.
He’s like a phantom in the night; we ask, “Where is he really from?”

Oh how little did we know, he’d bring destruction in his wake.
No Robin Hood he is, from the rich he does not take.

He’s a banker’s friend; a corporate tool who’s sent us spiraling down.
He hails from a gangster’s paradise in a city called, “chi-town.”

He’s led us straight to hell and he’s smiled the journey long.
We crashed upon the rocks as though he’d sung the siren’s song.

What’s left is barren land and the poor are all but dead.
Those who could not lose, put a bullet through their head.

The serfs are drudging painfully as they keep the rich afloat.
They’re scared to make a sound; they dare not rock the boat.

Their fate would be just like the rest; that’s not to be endured.
The Black man lent his face and the white man was assured,
that all would be as he declared; no detail left to chance.
The white man pulls the strings of the Black man in the manse.

The white puppet masters pulled the strings behind the charming, smiling, engaging, false, fake-ass face of Barack Obama, a puppet bought with blood money. He was a willing tool for those who consider themselves to be the elite. They are nothing more than worthless scum; depraved, lying, greedy, deceitful crooks with no compassion or morality. They are why we are constantly at war. They are why people are working for poverty wages. They are why we have homeless, hungry and uninsured people in this world. The hopeless, sunken eyed, gaunt people of the world watch and they wait……and they die because billions of people, as far as the elite fucks are concerned, are expendable and don’t deserve to live. If you are reading this, then you are just as expendable to those nasty bastards as I am and they will soon make a believer out of you! Don’t think so? Wait for it and I feel that you will not have long to wait! But while you wait, go out and buy this bitch’s book and see if it will warm you on a cold winter’s night when you’re out on the streets because whites don’t have any use for you. You can’t play baseball, football, nor can you jump and play basketball. But call fucking Michelle Obama and see if she’ll help your ass out. Yeah, good luck with that! Attend her book signing and ask for her assistance, you’ll find yourself behind bars so fast, your head’ll be spinning. But she’ll be saying that she found a nice, warm spot for you to lay your fucking head, in jail!
