“Attorney Michael F. Cockson, You Lost The Appeal For More Attorney’s Fees And So Where Is My Cousin’s Class Action Settlement Money?”

 

 

Some of you may know that I published several posts regarding the fact that my cousin was part of an $18.5 million dollar class action lawsuit because he rented from slumlords who had no valid rental licenses in Minneapolis, MN.

Steve Frenz and Spiros Zorbalas teemed up to run a scam on the City of Minneapolis, MN when the City of Minneapolis, MN ran ‘The Slumlord of Minneapolis’, Spiros Zorbalas, out of Minneapolis by stripping him of his rental licenses on ALL rental properties in Minneapolis, MN.

Then along comes Steve Frenz who told the City of Minneapolis, MN that he had purchased ALL of the properties that had been previously owned by Spiros Zorbalas. The City of Minneapolis, MN then approved rental licenses for the properties that had been owned by Spiros Zorbalas. However, the fact of the matter is that Spiros Zorbalas still owned the rental properties that Steve Frenz claimed he now owned, thus making his rental licenses, null and void. Meanwhile, thousands of mostly low income minority tenants were paying rent to live in vermin and rodent infested buildings that were substandard to say the least in that many had no heat, no hot water, crumbling stairs, unsecured mailboxes, bedbugs and the list is endless.

The City of Minneapolis, MN ‘claimed’ to have no knowledge of the fraud being perpetrated by Spiros Zorbalas and Steve Frenz. Enter Attorney Michael F. Cockson, who was initially contacted by Inquilinxs Unidos, a renters’ union out of Minneapolis, MN that helps immigrants with housing and other issues they face. Attorney Michael F. Cockson, a partner at the law firm, FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402 agreed to take the case on behalf of Inquilinxs Unidos. However, after learning of the scope of tenants who were adversely impacted by unclean and unsafe building conditions, Judge Mary Vasaly upgraded the case to class action status and said that all former and current renters were to receive ALL rent payments that they had made to Steve Frenz, The Apartment Shop LLC and various other holding companies that Frenz had started up to hide the fact that Spiros Zorbalas still owned the properties that he was acting as front man for.

The case was eventually settled for $18.5 million which was relegated to the coffers of the Settlement Administrators, BrownGreerPLC, located in Richmond, VA, which was to get in excess of $300,000 to send mailings to class members and to mail out checks to class members. Commonbond and another company was named as recipients of checks that should have been relegated to class members and only to class members. See here for details.

However, Attorney Michael F. Cockson was not happy with 25% of the settlement funds awarded to him by Judge Mary Vasaly and so sued his own clients in the Court of Appeals for 32% of the class action settlement funds. Now originally, he would have received over $6 million dollars from a case that he took because he wanted to “Give a voice to those who could not speak for themselves” and to “compensate them for their living conditions” and yet as of today, the appeal for more in Attorney’s Fees for Michael F. Cockson’s greedy ass is still in ‘briefing’ status with the Court of Appeals.

After I blogged about this on June 14, 2019, four days later, the Settlement Administrators called and told my cousin that the settlement checks had been mailed out on June 17, 2019. Below is a copy of the settlement check that my cousin received as his share of the $18.5 million dollar class action lawsuit.

 

So, even though my cousin paid thousands upon thousands in rent to rent an apartment that had multiple safety issues and code violations and was not even licensed to be rented, he received $724.15 while Attorney Michael F. Cockson, a partner at the law firm, FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402 is suing my cousin and all other members of this class action lawsuit that he initiated on behalf of his clients for more in Attorney’s Fees than what Judge Vasaly approved for his greedy ass. Michael F. Cockson wants more than the over $6 million that has already been taken from his poor, misused and abused clients who had been shitted on by the likes of Spiros Zorbalas and Steve Frenz.

However, Michael Cockson’s greedy ass was stopped in his tracks in trying to collect 32% of the class action settlement in Attorney’s Fees by the Minnesota Court of Appeals because the Minnesota Court of Appeals agreed with the District Court’s decision that granted Michael F. Cockson, 25% in Attorney’s Fees. That greedy bastard, Michael F. Cockson, then petitioned the Minnesota Supreme Court and the Minnesota Supreme Court DENIED his PETITION FOR REVIEW and so the decision of the Minnesota District Court’s decision still stands, your greedy ass was already awarded over $6 million dollars and you wanted more and so the Minnesota Court of Appeals Court said, “FUCK NO!” Now where is my cousin’s goddamn money? Where are your other client’s goddamn money, greedy ass Michael F. Cockson of FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402, Telephone number: 612-766-8425?

The District Court found that for class action settlements the size of this case and in the consumer category, the average, mean,and median percentages ranged from20% to 26% of the common fund. Appellant concedes there is no case law in Minnesota expressly rejecting the use of empirical studies to determine awards of attorney fees. Moreover, we know of no case that prohibits the use of such studies. The district court did not abuse its discretion when it relied in part on empirical studies to conclude that a fee award of 25% of the common-fund settlement in this case was fair and reasonable.

The district court declined to employ the lodestar method, noting its concerns that the lodestar method “create[s] a temptation for lawyers to run up the number of hours for which they [are] paid.”See In re Union Carbide Corp. Consumer Prods. Bus. Sec. Litig., 724 F.Supp. 160, 167-68 (S.D.N.Y. 1989). Appellant concedes there is no legal authority requiring the district court to perform a lodestar cross-check to confirm the reasonableness of the fee award. Because it is within the district court’s discretion to decline to employ a lodestar cross-check,the district court did not abuse its discretion. Affirmed.

 

Below is the final status of the appeal and as you can see, that greedy bastard, Michael F. Cockson, appealed to the Supreme Court for more in Attorney’s Fees after the Minnesota Court of Appeals upheld the lower court’s decision on his Attorney’s Fees and the Supreme Court DENIED his PETITION FOR FURTHER REVIEW! The District Court’s ruling stands. Your greedy ass was to receive 25% of the settlement and despite your appeals and even your Supreme Court filings, 25% is still what you are to receive and not the 32% that you quite actually, jumped up and down in trying to get. So, where is my cousin’s goddamn money? And for ANY others who were part of this class action lawsuit, get on the phone( 612-766-8425) and call that greedy bastard, Michael F. Cockson, and DEMAND to know when you are to receive the monies that should have been set aside PENDING the out come of his APPEAL for more in Attorney’s Fees than what the judge initially decreed.

 

 

 

Below is the actual outcome of the appeal. The appeal is FINAL. The Minnesota Supreme Court refused to hear the case. The judgment stands.

 

 

 

 

What does the legal term affirmed mean?
Dictionary of Legal Terms. Affirmed. Affirmed – this is a legal term used in the practice of courts of appeal. It means that the court of appeal has concluded that the lower court decision is correct. It will stand as proclaimed by the lower court and enters into force immediately.
Affirmed

 

In the practice of the court of appeals, it means that the court of appeals has concluded that the lower court decision is correct and will stand as rendered by the lower court.

 

 

And then folks have the nerve to wonder why what the fuck is going down in Minnesota is going down? This would be one reason why. This particular lawsuit involved more American descendants of slavery than the lawsuits that Attorney Michael F. Cockson previously took on a pro bono basis and so for this particular case, as you can see, he fought long and hard, FOR TWO GODDAMN YEARS to get money that he should have been glad that his clients received since he supposedly took on the case to give justice to those who had been living like shit in unlicensed apartments. But what does he do? Why, he appeals for more in Attorney’s Fees, thus taking money out of the pockets of his very own clients. What goddamn sense does that make?

Michael F. Cockson settled the case knowing that he had settled the case for $18.5 million and he knew how many people would be involved in this class action case, so why then, would he turn around and basically sue his own damn clients for more of the class action settlement in Attorney’s Fees when he was the one who initially settled the case; agreed to the amount? Only to turn right around and get pissed because the judge disagreed with his bloated litigation costs; because make no mistake, that is what this all boils down to. If you go to https://www.minneapolisapartmentlitigation.com/ and look under ‘documents’, you will see what that bastard was charging for fees that would have eaten up the entire $18.5 million settlement.

If you ever meet an attorney, you can damn sure as hell bet that you are meeting THE most sheisty motherfucker you will ever NOT want to meet! I can honestly say that I have NEVER had honest dealings with ANY attorney. They ALL should be disbarred because they are ALL criminals who should be behind bars for the sheisty shits they are!

HA! The White House Is Over Run With Coronavirus! I Am Literally Laughing My Ass Off!

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳 To hell with Mother’s Day since I don’t celebrate that shit anyway. Although I am a mother, ain’t a damn thing for me to celebrate as it relates to Mother’s Day and damn it if I’ll be a hypocrite and laud my mother on this day. I lauded the hell out of her on her damn birthday last year. But as usual, I digress.

‘Scary to Go to Work’: White House Races to Contain Virus in Its Ranks

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is racing to contain an outbreak of Covid-19 inside the White House, as some senior officials believe that the disease is already spreading rapidly through the warren of cramped offices that make up the three floors of the West Wing.

The concern about an outbreak of the virus at the White House — and the swift testing and contact tracing being done to contain it — underscores the broader challenge for Americans as Mr. Trump urges them to begin returning to their own workplaces despite warnings from public health officials that the virus continues to ravage communities across the country.

Most restaurants, offices and retail stores do not have the ability to regularly test all their employees and quickly track down and quarantine the contacts of anyone who gets infected. At the White House, all employees are being tested at least weekly, officials said, and a handful of top aides who regularly interact with the president are being tested daily, they said.

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳 Now, let me get this straight, the Trump Administration that has been tasked with keeping Amerikkka safe during this coronavirus pandemic finds itself to be the next HOTSPOT??!!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳

This could not happen to a more deserving bunch of racist, bigoted, corrupt, criminal pond scum, scum sucking bottom feeders! “CORONAVIRUS, THANK YOU!” “All hail CORONAVIRUS!”🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳

Just when I thought things couldn’t get any better, this happens. Coronavirus takes up residence in the West Wing of the White House. Isn’t that where Donald Trump spends most of his time sitting up on Twitter?

Trump’s valet has coronavirus!🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳 But…but…Trump did NOT want to wear a mask. In fact, he insists on not wearing a mask and so we know that his valet was not laying out a mask for Trump’s daily wear. He also insisted that Amerikkka needed to reopen for Amerikkka’s own good of course, meaning for the good of his Wall Street buddies and of course for the good of his many businesses since CAPITALISM must not be allowed to die. CAPITALISM is why health care ‘professionals’ are exclaiming over a lack of PPE. CAPITALISM is why a host of hospitals are laying off hundreds of employees during a pandemic claiming serious loss of revenue from elective surgeries that have not been taking place because who in their right mind wants to head to a hospital now what with coronavirus flowing through the air ducts and hastening the departure of the coronavirus infected?

So, Amerikkka, now that the White House is a breeding ground for coronavirus, you can feel much safer knowing that your lord and savior, racist-in-chief Donald Trump has given you the green light to sit up in restaurants, head to the beaches, get on a plane with flight attendants who want you to know that they are coronavirus infected, also go to the mall, get your hair cut, get your nails done. Do every damn thing you want to do because as you can see, EVERYTHING IS UNDER CONTROL! But for some strange reason, I cannot stop laughing! I will give it a rest on the laughing emojis but do know that as I type this, tears are streaming down my face from laughing and I am pretty sure that even after I proof read this more than a dozen times, there will be errors, but no matter, you will get the gist of this blog; THE WHITE HOUSE IS A HOT SPOT FOR CORONAVIRUS OTHERWISE KNOWN AS COVID-19!

Amerikkkans can all sleep better in their beds tonight since we know that everything is under control. Donald Trump has his hand on a handle that contains coronavirus. Things are going so well at the White House that even Trump’s ‘go to guy’, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has had to quarantine himself. Dr. Fauci said that he, too, had begun a “modified quarantine” after what he called a “low risk” contact with an infected staff member. And even Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, is in quarantine as is Dr. Stephen Hahn, the commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration. DAAAYUM!!! These are the experts that are organizing task forces and recommending when a reopening of Amerikkka should occur as in RIGHT NOW. They ARE ALL IN QUARANTINE and so what does that say for the rest of this shithole? We don’t have to wait until Winter for the next wave, the next wave is almost upon us! Three cheers for CORONAVIRUS!!! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray! Hip Hip Hooray!

How did Trump’s expert on infectious diseases get himself into a position of having to go into a “modified quarantine?” Did he not know what ‘social distancing’ meant? So while Trump’s White House is scrambling to contain Its own coronavirus outbreak, the economy under Trump’s guidance is looking…well…read it for yourself.

Layoffs start turning from temporary to permanent across America

In an American economy negotiating a downturn that is already being likened to the 1930s Great Depression, with data on May 8 expected to show more than 20 million Americans lost their jobs in April.

Emerging from the stacks of layoff notices filed by businesses in California, Florida, and New York, where service industries have been hammered by lockdown orders, as well as politically important swing states such as Michigan and Ohio, where key industries such as steel and autos already faced headwinds going into 2020. Plenty of layoffs that just a month ago were labeled “temporary” are now tagged “indefinite” or “permanent.”

But the really ‘good’ news is that the lamestream media continues with the lies stating that the ‘recession’ is starting to bottom out even as coronavirus cases are on the rise. WHAT.THE.HELL. They are still trying to spin the hell out of shit to try and turn it into cotton candy! I ain’t buying it! But hey! For all of you Trumpsters out there, continue to buy the bullshit. Go on out and do your thing. Go to the mall. Go get your hair cut. Hell! Go on a cruise since I hear tell that Carnival Cruise Lines is about to get back up and running. So get back on that petri dish and when no country wants to accept yet another coronvirus filled ship, you can sail the oceans for longer than you want. But hey! If you’re bored…and I know that most whites are, then there you go! Carnival Cruise Lines wants you to book your next cruise that’s leaving ports in August. By then, they expect that you’ll be ready to drop dead at sea and have a sea burial because that’s exactly what is going to happen. The captain can officiate and then someone will have to officiate over his coronavirus death because make no mistake, those who work on those cruise ships are from countries that don’t even know what the word, ‘hygiene’ means. And you were thinking that the only worries you had were norovirus related. Well add coronavirus to norovirus and your ass is indeed, grass.

This bears repeating!

Most restaurants, offices and retail stores do not have the ability to regularly test all their employees and quickly track down and quarantine the contacts of anyone who gets infected. At the White House, all employees are being tested at least weekly, officials said, and a handful of top aides who regularly interact with the president are being tested daily, they said.

That means that those restaurants, retail stores, offices, hair salons, barber shops and other businesses that have reopened do NOT have the ability to test their employees for coronavirus and we ALL know that we have been told that many coronavirus infected people are asymptomatic. And yet, the White House is now testing ALL employees WEEKLY while a handful of top aides who regularly interact with Trump are tested daily. But even still, the White House is a breeding ground for coronavirus while restaurants, offices, malls and barbershops are ‘coronavirus free zones’??? Go on in and spin the wheel, throw the dice and hope that those employees at restaurants, retail stores, barbershops, nail salons and hair salons are not infected because you won’t know for certain since there are no available tests for them. You’ll just have to take them at face value that they are not just asymptomatic. How’s your luck? Those at the White House already know that their luck has run out even though they had the ability to get tested at anytime. And yet, they are, in their own words, “scared to go to work.” But Trump wants Amerikkka to return to work even as those in his own Administration are scared to go to work. Ain’t that some shit? Indeed it is, but Amerikkkans love shit from their elected racists and so you go do as you are told, “Get back to work!”

Trump has it on good authority that he’ll have coronavirus in no time flat; his valet says so. LMAO!!

The news on ALL fronts is GREAT, ain’t it??!! I mean, Trump’s White House is full of coronavirus since Trump claimed that the virus was just a hoax bandied about by the media and the Democrats to lose him the election. His own team of experts are in quarantine due to having come into contact with coronavirus infected White House staff and while all of that was going down, Trump was busy touting the reopening of Amerikkka! All’s well that ends well! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣😂😂😂😂🥳🥳🥳🥳

….And Coronavirus Continues To Expose What I Already Knew…..

..in that racist whites continue to flaunt their white privilege and self declared ‘white supremacy’ in demanding that they be allowed onto beaches, into bars and that the party must restart despite the Trump Administration’s own medical expert stating otherwise. Despite the fact that Dr. Fauci stated, ‘It’s going to backfire’: Fauci says anti-quarantine protesters could prolong shutdown.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, one of the leading experts in the White House’s response to the coronavirus, warned demonstrations happening across the country protesting the quarantine orders will prolong the shutdown period.

“If you jump the gun and go into a situation where you have a big spike, you’re gonna set yourself back,” he continued. “So as painful as it is to go by the careful guidelines of gradually phasing into a reopening, it’s going to backfire. That’s the problem.”

Meanwhile, whites took to the beaches in Florida and in South Carolina since those states have loosened ‘stay at home’ guidelines. And every picture that I have seen has been that of whites, overtaking beaches during a pandemic that is far from over and that has been extremely deadly for front line workers who have mostly been American descendants of slavery. You see, while we are standing somewhere on an Amazon warehouse floor, contracting COVID-19 to send a white asshole some goddamn nail polish, we are contracting COVID-19 and dying. While we are front line workers at hospitals, treating COVID-19 patients of ALL stripes, we are also contracting this deadly contagion and are dying while the whites are now at the beach or are protesting that THEIR rights are being infringed upon because they need to get to the beach and to their vacation homes and to the bars, concerts, ballparks and casinos.

Meanwhile, health care workers in Colorado are protesting against protesters who are protesting the lockdown. Health care workers are positioning themselves in the middle of the street to protest against the reopening of this shithole that’s filled with white lunatics with the lunatic-in-chief, Donald Trump, leading the charge.

This shithole is going off the deep end because of what this shithole contains; rabid, racist, insane white lunatics who happen to be Trump’s supporters, down to the very last one, whom he is egging on with his “LIBERATE” tweets aimed at states that had pushed back on his ‘reopening Amerikkka’ calls which when this so-called ‘reopening’ occurs, will have a disastrous effect in the form of ever increasing coronavirus related illnesses and deaths.

So, while the whites are celebrating at the beach or protesting because they don’t mind coming down with coronavirus since they feel that their civil liberties are being infringed upon, another Black family in Alabama is being showcased in the continuing saga of “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths In America!” Nine family members tested positive for COVID-19, of which three have already died. And as if that is not bad enough, another news report is stating that Michigan’s youngest COVID-19 victim, who of course is Black, is 5-year old Skylar Herbert. Skylar died late Sunday night after being taken off a ventilator for suspected loss of brain activity since as a result of contracting COVID-19, she developed a rare form of meningitis and brain swelling.

This dead child’s parents are mourning her death even while racists are protesting that they should have the right to get a haircut, go to the beach, the bar, the nail salon, the casino, the strip club, the ballgame and everyone else is just around to clean up their goddamn mess; meaning American descendants of slavery!

Black people…..SERIOUSLY!!!! I am too through!!! That racist governor of New York even stated that American descendants of slavery are the faces of coronavirus deaths in New York because they are the front line workers; they are the hospital workers. Why oh why are we always the ones who are willing to die for no account, no good, worthless, racist ass, hating whites??!!! Why must we ALWAYS sacrifice ourselves for their no account asses? You see that they don’t give a shit about you or yours? They don’t have a heart, a soul, a conscience, empathy, compassion, morality or even humanity and yet, we are somewhere putting our lives on the line for their damn worthless asses to continue to suck air while we breathe our last. What fucking sense does that make? You are under no obligation to continue to bag groceries for some shits whose only thought is to take that shit to the goddamn beach and lie out and tan. They ain’t thinking about COVID-19 because they know that your ass is too willing to come down with that shit and die taking care of their fucked up, pasty asses as they play and drink and gamble and do whatever the fuck they want to do.

As seriously as many Black people are taking this shit and still, we are “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths???!!!” To hell with that shit! You need to sit your ass down and refuse to continue to put yourselves on the front lines for some shits that ain’t even worth it! What have you got to lose? We have long since been the faces of poverty, homelessness, unemployment, gentrification, health disparities and the list is endless and now, we want to continue to be “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths???!!! HELP.ONE.ANOTHER.OUT., during this time and we won’t have to stand somewhere until we are declared, “The Faces of Coronavirus Deaths!” What will it take to get through to you? These whites ain’t fucking worth it! I cannot state that often enough! They don’t give a damn about us. Why should we give a damn about them? I’m torn all to pieces that I’ve got family in the health care field putting their lives on the line for these deranged pasty assholes because I damn sure as hell would NOT! If those filthy white bastards counted on me to try and save their filthy, debased hides, they’d be some dead motherfuckers because they’re a thankless, fucked up lot! To hell with them! Look out for yourselves in this time of a pandemic crisis that’s not going anywhere. Hell! You know what type of president this shithole has. Those whites elected his ass, but we’re the ones who are dying because we’ve always got to do the menial labor; we’ve always got to care…about whites???!!!!! Not fucking hardly! Stop doing that shit!!!! Wake the hell up before more and more of you are the headlines of various news outlets about who just died and how many in this family and that family of this COVID-19 virus that’s not fucking playing. Whites don’t have to take this shit seriously because they know that they can ALWAYS hide behind our Black asses, AND THEY DO! That’s why those worthless, no account fuckers are at the beach right now, because they know that you are going to step in and try and save their worthless, goddamn hides, WHEN, not if they come down with coronavirus. I fucking would NOT be standing there waiting for someone to drag their virus laden asses to my fucking hospital floor. Hell fucking no! Grow some damn balls and head out the door and fucking refuse to continue to be on the front lines of this pandemic since you know you don’t even have an adequate supply of masks and other safety essentials. That is goddamn madness!

I am fucking livid, enraged and some more shit that we continue to make ourselves available to be used and abused by white assed motherfuckers that mean us nothing but harm. We don’t matter to them and they sure as hell should not matter to us. I fucking spent two hours on the goddamn phone today speaking with those white assholes about getting an appointment for my cousin to see a neurologist because he can’t fucking sleep and I’m being told that ALL doctors are seeing patients via telephone call or facetime or some such nonsense and that since no one is able to go into the office, they have not even gotten around to referrals because my cousin’s primary care doctor referred him to a neurologist and they have no clue as to when referred patients are even going to receive a phone call telling them when they can get a phone call or a facetime setup with a doctor. This shit ain’t fucking funny and yet the whites are out there screeching about how they want to go to the beach, the bar and the casino while no one can even get a doctor’s appointment because they’re all terrified of contracting this virus. I even called my Endocrinologist and she is doing the same thing; either phoning patients or facetiming them. So if someone’s got a suspicious mole on their ass, too damn bad. That’s not an emergency. Wait until you can be seen in person or, I don’t know, you may be able to pull your goddamn pants down and expose the suspicious mole during that facetime shit! And some goddamn doctor at a hospital is wondering where are all the heart attack, stroke, aneurysm and cancer patients??!!! They are fucking dead, ASSHOLE because they can’t even get in to see a doctor because of this coronavirus madness and yet this dumb fuck is wondering why there are not patients of that sort in hospitals anymore. Get the fuck outta here with that foolish bullshit!

For this shithole to have been declared the richest country on the planet, a goddamn virus has rendered this shithole entirely useless! It has also exposed this shithole for the racist shithole that it has always been and always will be. There is nothing exceptional about how this pandemic is being handled over here. The only reason some people are demanding to go back to work is because they are so damn broke, they’ve overwhelmed the food banks, while at the same time, the comfortably off whites and the wealthy whites are able to ride this shit out or demand that it reopen because they are fucking bored. What kind of shit is that? On the one hand, you’ve got people lined up in numbers never seen before at food banks while on the other hand, you’ve got white assholes demanding to be allowed to go to the beach and get infected while also infecting others with a lethal virus while the president of this shithole condones the latter with fucking tweets talking about “LIBERATE!” WHAT.THE.HELL. I hope the rest of the world is taking note of this chaos, pandemonium, bedlam and stupid ass, ridiculous shit that IS AMERIKKKA! Why the hell would you try and emulate this shit???!!!!

“Africa is rich more than Europe, America and Asia but their problem is their leaders” – Vladimir Putin

Africa’s problem is also Africa’s people because something has got to be wrong with an entire continent of people who allow their leaders that kowtow to foreign corporations and foreign governments, to also ALLOW their citizens to starve and live in abject poverty and engage in foreign scams in order to make money since the Nigerians are famous for doing that shit. Africa’s leaders also allow foreign corporations to use Africa as a dumping ground for their toxic waste. Diamond companies that are foreign owned employ Africans for low wages and send them into dangerous diamond mines and when they die, their bodies are discarded like yesterday’s garbage. Africa’s leaders are allowing all of that, just as they allowed the colonizers to take my ancestors from those shores.

Vladimir Putin: Africa is rich more than Europe, America and Asia but their problem is their leaders

Africa will never be independent, Africans believe in Europeans, Americans, and Chinese more than themselves. “They don’t trust themselves at all, African technocrats/Engineers aren’t given the platform to practice what they studied instead they hire Chinese to construct roads for themselves.

“A white man will commit a crime in Africa but no action will be taken because the African authorities view us as Demigods, far from the truth. “A black man can be abducted in Europe get harassed and even be killed but no African authority can even question.

“Africans present themselves as weak people with no hope, especially when dealing with Europeans and Americans. “They are their own enemies. They hate each other and this gives their colonial masters the opportunity to continue exploring their resources.

Exactly!

And the very same can be said for the American descendants of African slaves because it is quite apparent that we inherited that ‘self hatred’ which includes hatred of each other. We are our own enemies even as we have the white man on our asses, fucking daily!

A Russian has to sit somewhere and tell you dumb asses that you are your own worst enemies? How whacked is that shit? And don’t even bother castigating me for calling both Africans and their descendants over here in the states, dumb asses because that is exactly what they are. I am so damn sorry to have to be categorized with that lot because MY thinking is not their thinking.

Those lily livered Africans sit somewhere and worship the whites that colonized their asses to the point whereas they are still paying what amounts to a colonization tax to their colonizers. Why on earth would Africans still be sending ‘colonization tax’ money to France in thanks for French motherfuckers colonizing and absconding with Africa’s treasures and wealth? I would not. But that is exactly what those damn dumb as all hell Africans are doing to this very day.

The Chinese, the Europeans and the Americans are in Africa stripping Africa bare while Africa’s people sit somewhere and moan and wail because they have no food to eat and we in Amerikkka sit somewhere and watch commercials showcasing pasty assed whites running over to Africa to feed a boatload of starving African children while the caption reads: “Send your dollars to UNICEF so that we can continue to feed starving children in Africa. For only pennies a day, we can feed half an African village.” Fuck that shit! Africans are even allowing whites to go over there and pretend to be doctors, all the while those so-called doctors are killing African babies and children and when the shit hits the fan, the only thing those lousy motherfuckers do over there is wail and moan and then shut the fuck up.

I have long since stopped wondering why my Black ass is sitting somewhere in Amerikkka dealing with my own fucked up situation. I know why. And it did not take Vladimir Putin to explain that shit to me. I just posted a blog about how the Africans will drag their dumb asses to China while allowing the Chinese to steal Africa’s riches while those Africans who are in China are treated to a big, heaping helping of racism. But no African had better lay a hand on a Chinese motherfucker over in Africa or the Chinese authorities that are over in Africa to make sure that they abscond with Africa’s shit will kill their damn ass on their on damn continent and not a goddamn thing will be done about it by the African leaders. What kind of shit is that?

And so for those of you who sit your stupid asses over here in Amerikkka and laud Africa all day and all night to the point whereas you call yourselves celebrating some damn Kwanzaa shit, sit the fuck down and shut the fuck up because you look stupid. You are somewhere talking about how you are going to practice African customs by jumping brooms and donning dashikis and African garb while those stupid motherfuckers are still up to the same antics that are why your stupid asses are in Amerikkka to begin with. Africans ain’t thinking about your stupid Black Amerikkkan asses because they are too busy over in Africa kissing Chinese, European and Amerikkkan asses so long as they are either yellow or pasty. They love kissing yellow and pasty asses. They don’t want shit to do with your Black ass. They wouldn’t be happy to see you because their fucking gods are yellow and pasty. Your Black ass? Not so goddamn much and that includes those of you who believe that because you’ve got light skin, your ass would be at least acceptable to Africans. Get real!

Vladimir Putin, a Russian, has to sit somewhere and state the goddamn truth while Blacks in Amerikkka are going on and on about some damn kings and queens in Africa and how we come from such great and noble warriors and builders and blah, blah, blah. Shut the fuck up! We come from stinking, fly covered shit because that IS Africa. Those Africans ain’t about shit! They are a bunch of namby pamby shit their pants, shitty ass motherfuckers that haven’t got the balls of gnats when going up against some damn yellow slant eyed motherfuckers or pasty assed motherfuckers. They will bow and scrape to those worthless dogs while throwing their own kinfolk under the goddamn bus and what’s more, you fucking know this but you try and ignore the obvious because you want to believe in some damn fairy tales like what’s been put out by Disney and Marvel comics about WAKANDA; a fake ass African kingdom. That shit is just as fake as your fake ass pretense of celebrating some shit that don’t even exist in Africa and what’s more, never did. Those African motherfuckers don’t want shit to do with your Black Amerikkkan ass! And as for that “Ghana Year of Return” shit? That was just to take your money and what the fuck did you get for it? Scammed, that’s the fuck what! Dumb much!

And then you have the nerve to wonder why it is so easy for these white and yellow motherfuckers to make sure that we are always the faces of the sick, the dying and the dead. Look at what the hell is going down in Africa and that same shit is what we are dealing with in the states. The only reasons Africans are dying from contagious diseases is because their borders are open to every yellow and pasty ass that’s dripping diseases and contagions. And when that shit flies over here, we already know our ass is grass because of disparities in health care as it relates to outcomes being always in the negative for Black people in this racist shithole called, “Amerikkka!” You’re sitting somewhere moaning about how Black folks are the faces of coronavirus deaths in Amerikkka when look at what we think of ourselves. We will continuously put our lives in the hands of whites and yellow motherfuckers who mean us nothing but harm because we refuse to realize that instead of spending money on fake ass shit and fantasy movies about fake kingdoms, we should have been pooling what little money we can manage to scrape up and put it towards our own institutions, but no, we won’t do that. We hate each other too goddamn much. Everyone all across this godforsaken planet is aware of that shit and the fact that we will never get our shit together, hence why no one takes our stupid asses seriously, including us. You don’t fucking like the truth, but there it is.

I know that the whites want to keep us down, but do we have to be hell bent on helping his ass? Many of you Blacks are squalling, not about how horrible the situation for Black people is in this shithole, you are squalling about the fact that your fake nails have fallen off. You’re bellyaching about how bad your goddamn weave looks. You’re whining about the fact that you can’t get inside a Popeye’s chicken joint and buy them out of chicken sandwiches. I’m done with you stupid, whining ass babies. You get exactly what you seek; a continued hard row to hoe and an urn at the end of it because many of you don’t even have life insurance so that someone can bury your stupid dead ass. Good thing for your dumb ass that there’s GOFUNDME because that’s what’s going to be paying for the burial expenses for a many of you dumb as all hell Black motherfuckers! Suck on that, you stupid Black pieces of shit!

Vladimir Putin: Africa is rich more than Europe, America and Asia but their problem is their leaders. Putin shows his concerns on Africa how they didn’t believe in themselves. Vladimir Putin has stated that Africa will never be independent because they believe in Europeans, Americans and Chinese more than themselves.

Yeah! You tell em Putin! But the thing is see, you’re wasting your goddamn time because these ignorant fools will NEVER get it. More’s the goddamn pity! A white motherfucker trying to school some dumb ass Blacks! For the love of !!!!!!! I am too damn through!

What The Hell Is Wrong With Republican Governors? Now South Dakota Is Set To Become The Next Coronavirus Hotspot

Now, we have all heard the mainstream media and even Donald Trump pretend to lament the number of cases of coronavirus deaths of American descendants of slavery, but who the hell do you think lives in South Dakota? Newsflash, there are only 1.7% of American descendants of slavery living in South Dakota according to the 2012 census, 86.2% of South Dakotans are White and so the latest news out of South Dakota does not bode well for this majority ‘white’ state.

South Dakota’s governor resisted ordering people to stay home. Now it has one of the nation’s largest coronavirus hot spots.

As governors across the country fell into line in recent weeks, South Dakota’s top elected leader stood firm: There would be no statewide order to stay home.

Such edicts to combat the spread of the novel coronavirus, Gov. Kristi L. Noem said disparagingly, reflected a “herd mentality.” It was up to individuals — not government — to decide whether “to exercise their right to work, to worship and to play. Or to even stay at home.”

And besides, the first-term Republican told reporters at a briefing this month, “South Dakota is not New York City.”

So I suppose coronavirus was just going to remain in New York because it was having such a good time in the ‘city that never sleeps’ and so why bother venturing to South Dakota since what did South Dakota have to offer a virus? More people to infect, perchance? Because what this stupid republican governor failed to consider is that South Dakota is home to a Smithfield meat packing plant and now South Dakota is also home to one of the largest single coronavirus clusters anywhere in the United States, with more than 300 workers at a giant ­pork-processing plant falling ill. Workers had been begging for protective gear and were not receiving them and so of course, coronavirus raged through the pork processing plant and now that so many workers have tested positive for COVID-19, Smithfield has had to shut the meat packing plant down until further notice claiming that this will have a major disruption of ‘meat’ distribution to America’s grocery stores. Good! You don’t need that shit anyway. It does nothing FOR your immune system and does every type of damage. May that plant remain shuttered forever.

And of course, guess who mainly worked at that facility, immigrants; legal and otherwise. It is easier to be an illegal in South Dakota because the weather is so atrocious, who in their right mind is going to continuously seek out illegals and return them to their country? Smithfield meat packing plant has long used illegal immigrants at its facilities. The claim is that no Amerikkkans want those jobs and so illegals earn poverty wages and cannot complain too loudly about working conditions, hence why when there were calls for protective masks and gloves from the workers, none were distributed even though those workers were working elbow to elbow in an already unsanitary environment. What could go wrong?

The governor claims that she has been in consultation with Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and has been assured by him that she is doing the right thing since Kushner has instructed Crazy Kristi to see to it that those in the medical field dose their coronavirus patients with a drug[Hydroxychloroquine] that Trump has touted as the ‘cure’ for coronavirus despite a lack of scientific evidence proving its efficacy and even doctors have stated that the drug should not be used since it has the potential to cause heart problems. That pasty looking robot, Jared Kushner is the very last thing that should be giving advice on how to hang drapes, much less on what steps to take to reign in a pandemic that no one has a clue as to how to contain, especially since every single step that the Trump Administration has taken has been too little, too late, wrong and inadequate to say the least.

Crazy Kristi, as this governor should be called, is going to have the deaths of too many on her hands because of her foolish and partisan politics in attempting to kiss Trump’s ass and placate him by keeping her state ‘open’ as opposed to locked down.

Unfortunately for those immigrants who have contracted coronavirus, they are at the mercy of the merciless. Of course South Dakotans would elect a republican because South Dakota is intensely racist from one end to the other and would have it no other way and since those immigrants more than likely are unable to vote and even if they did, they are outnumbered by racists, they would not be able to elect a governor that has more than two brain cells connected and working. It is quite obvious that even during a pandemic, racism still rules the day and so Crazy Kristi will kiss Trump’s racist fat pasty ass while also ensuring that her state’s residents contract coronavirus and die. Don’t even think about asking for help from neighboring states or even states as far away as New York when the need arises and believe me, it most definitely will especially since South Dakota has already been declared the next coronavirus hot spot to emerge.

Crazy Kristi’s refusal to issue a ‘stay at home’ order is putting numerous people at risk. And the mayors of different South Dakota cities are trying to lock their cities down, but without assistance from the governor, they can only do so much. South Dakota is relatively a rural state and rural states are known for their lack of expansive medical institutions and so when the shit hits the fan, having one hospital in a 100 mile radius that only has one isolation room and two ventilators is not going to be a great set up when dealing with a pandemic. What will Jared Kushner’s advice be to Crazy Kristi once the bodies start piling up, as they most certainly will? Who will take responsibility for the deaths of thousands of South Dakotans? Or will Crazy Kristi and Jared Kushner merely shrug and claim “No responsibility” as Trump did for his lackadaisical response to this virus in the first place? North Dakotans are about to find out.

Uh Oh! It’s Gotta Be Bad When Corporate Lawyers Are Now Losing Their Jobs! HA!

😅😂🤣😅😂🤣😅😂🤣 Yes, I am THAT amused by this headline!

A Second Round of Coronavirus Layoffs Has Begun. No One Is Safe.

The first people to lose their jobs worked at restaurants, malls, hotels and other places that closed to contain the coronavirus pandemic. Higher skilled work, which often didn’t require personal contact, seemed more secure.

That’s not how it’s turning out.

A second wave of job loss is hitting those who thought they were safe. Businesses that set up employees to work from home are laying them off as sales plummet. CORPORATE LAWYERS ARE SEEING JOBS DRY UP. Government workers are being furloughed as state and city budgets are squeezed. And health-care workers not involved in fighting the pandemic are suffering.

“CORPORATE LAWYERS ARE SEEING JOBS DRY UP!” Thank you coronavirus! And Michael Cockson, this is dedicated to YOU! Even though your sorry, racist ass is a partner at FAEGRE BAKER DANIELS LLP 2200 Wells Fargo Center, 90 South Seventh Street, Minneapolis, MN 55402, I hope to hell that this virus closes down that law firm after what you did to your poor clients and that included my cousin. I hope your income dries up, BIG FUCKING TIME!

But as usual, I digress!

So, those who thought that they could comfortably work from home and still receive a paycheck since they were not restaurant workers, retail clerks, hotel desk clerks or maids or bus drivers, janitors or who worked at Amazon warehouses are finding themselves to be affected by this latest round of layoffs? How does it feel to at first think that your shit didn’t stink, but you now know that it does? You ain’t hardly happy about that fact, I’m sure. But sit your ass down and from the comfort of your home, while you’re still in it, click on the link to take you to the website so that you can sign up for unemployment benefits. Order your groceries and wait for your greatly reduced unemployment check to be deposited into your account because now you’ve joined the ranks of the expendables.

April’s jobs report, which will capture late-March layoffs, will show cuts to 3.4 million business-services workers, including lawyers, architects, consultants and advertising professionals, as well 1.5 million nonessential health-care workers and 100,000 information workers, including those working in the media and telecommunications.

Get the fuck outta here! Those well educated, highly paid architects, IT consultants and even advertising professionals, along with LAWYERS and even those in the health-care field are to receive their pink slips? Looks like everybody had better hope that their dumb ass racist-in-chief Donald Trump comes through for them in their hour of need, otherwise, there are no premium spots left for cardboard boxes. They have all been taken. Also, homeless shelters are closed, for…you know…that ‘social distancing’ thing. And there you have it folks, Amerikkka, the land of opportunity, the land of milk and honey completely shut down over a virus that we cannot even see.

AGAIN, let me repeat! Those who thought that they were safe from layoffs due to this coronavirus pandemic are finding themselves just as fucked as the rest of us. Oh, you may have a bit more money to tide you over and your situation is most likely why your lord and savior Trump is speaking on the lie that he IS THE ULTIMATE AUTHORITY when it comes to re-opening America, but he’s not. You see, he is NOT in control. The coronavirus is and with the news coming out that there are Thousands of health care workers sickened by COVID-19 and 27 dead, CDC report says. But there’s probably more. Oh yes, there are many, many more because another report has the number of health care workers sickened with coronavirus at 20,000. But nevertheless, with a serious lack of PPE and other necessary medical supplies for those workers, more and more health care workers are going to contract coronavirus and so Trump may as well take several seats because as soon as he claims that Amerikkka is ‘open for business’, the numbers of the infected are going to skyrocket. So go right ahead and listen to that useless bag of wind and you are going to drop in a matter of days since the sick health care workers will be bending over you taking care of your sick asses while making sure that both of you succumb to coronavirus. It will be a case of the sick caring for the sick.

Coronavirus is the PERFECT STORM to bring down this diseased whore called, “Amerikkka!” My ancestors are cheering in their graves over this! They may not have lived to see this diseased whore exposed for what she really is and brought to her damn knees, but I am damn sure glad that I have. And I am loving every goddamn minute of it!

You filthy ass whites have done nothing but drone on and on about how American descendants of slavery are the faces of coronavirus deaths and if that be the case, don’t you think for one goddamn minute that we are going to go out all by our lonesome. Your damn asses are going out with us because haven’t you heard? Domestic violence is making headline news because you motherfuckers are losing it. The wife’s nagging, the kid’s are getting on your nerves, screaming about that Disney vacation they can’t take and some more shit. Ain’t no damn ‘meat’ in the grocery store. You’ve long since lost the ability to wipe your ass because you can’t find any toilet paper and that’s itching like mad and so there you sit, squirming with your dirty ass and listening to ALL of that noise in your household that’s been on lockdown for too goddamn long and now, it’s DOMESTIC VIOLENCE TIME! I knew that shit was going to ramp up and in spades because normally, the kiddies would be in school, you’d have yourself at a game and the wife would be at the spa. And you’d not see each other until bedtime and back up at em the next day, but is that the situation? Hell fucking no! So, the wife gets clapped up side the head, she’s screaming on the phone to the cops and you’re sitting down to your second case of beer and the kiddies are beating the hell out of each other over a video game. I can just see this scenario playing out all across this godforsaken planet, but especially here in the states.

And let’s not forget the suicides that are sure to follow because whites don’t and can’t do without entertainment and fantasy and since pro sports are shut down and Disney fantasy land is closed, what the hell is there for you to do but fight with whomever is in your household or suck on a gun? You’ve got so damn many, the only question is, “which one to choose?” I wonder, are the authorities going to label suicides during this pandemic as COVID-19 cases? I mean, everyone who goes to the hospital seems to die from COVID-19. No longer are heart attacks, strokes, cancer, diabetes and aneurysms killing people. They’re all dying from COVID-19 according to coroners reports. Poor coronavirus is going to get the blame for everything from layoffs to domestic violence incidents to suicides, to heart attacks and not to mention, cannibalistic rats.

Oh, did you hear that since restaurants and some grocery stores have closed all over the country, rats are now without their daily meals? Apparently, Starving, angry and cannibalistic: America’s rats are getting desperate amid coronavirus pandemic. WOW! The article goes on to say that rats are starting to take over cities all across America and are eating their young and becoming more aggressive. There have been thousands of calls about rats from Baltimore, Md to New Orleans, LA to Washington, D.C. As if that isn’t bad enough, there are reports that the bear population in national parks has exploded now that ‘human’ visitors are on lockdown. So, I guess when Trump reopens America, we’ll be hearing of whites getting mauled to death by bears.

Folks! In case you have not noticed, Amerikkka is fucked; royally and totally fucked! Ain’t capitalism mixed with racism grand? Ain’t it nice to have such an incredibly intelligent and stalwart figure as Amerikkka’s president who takes responsibility when shit happens and acts in a timely manner to mitigate the damage? Damn! My fingers gagged on that lie!

But hey, racist Amerikkka, you voted for Donald “Grab them by the pussy” Trump because the racism from whites will always win hands down every time even over their own best interests because is it in your best interests that Trump closed down the agency that Barack Obama launched to go into effect in the event of a pandemic? Is racism going to keep you lawyers in your jobs? Is racism going to make that unemployment check look any bigger? Is racism going to keep you from contemplating suicide over the potential loss of your material possessions, WHITES? Is racism stopping you from going upside your wife’s head because you’ve got season tickets to pro sports games and yet, you’re stuck at home listening to your wife nag you about her fucked up nails and hair? If and when you whites start sucking on guns, before you do, remember, it was better to vote for racism because racism is what you voted for because you ARE Donald Trump; each and every last one of you whites. You are indeed, Donald Trump and so you know exactly what he thinks of YOUR fucked up situation. It’s not impacting him and so he doesn’t give a fuck. When you thought the shit was only going to impact people who look like me, you were fine with that, but now that you know that lawyers, architects, IT workers and AD execs are not immune to COVID-19 layoffs, it’s now time to do what? Yeah! File for unemployment and sit back and realize how fucked your racist asses are and then of course when you start losing your shit, time to suck on a gun, time to find a rope and get to swinging. It’s not just people who look like me who are impacted by layoffs. Your ass is grass, as well. I’m used to the shit. But your pasty asses? Hardly! HA! I’m loving it!

And the dude who said this, “The virus shock does not discriminate across sectors as we initially thought,” – Gregory Daco, chief U.S. economist of Oxford Economics, needs to lose his damn job because dude is dumb as hell if he thought that only those who are seen as menial laborers would be impacted by this pandemic because despite all of the rhetoric, it would appear that coronavirus does not intend to discriminate. Thank you coronavirus!

GENTRIFICATION! Remember That??!!! But Now That Coronavirus Is Here, There Are Calls For Rent Strikes, Seriously??!!

Calls for rent strikes so that you won’t end up walking around like this poor woman in the next picture, is that it? What’s ‘good’ for her is ‘good’ for you!

Remember when the word, “GENTRIFICATION!” reared its gentryfying head, and we ALL know who gentrification impacted; American descendants of slavery, but now since millions of Americans are on lockdown thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, there are calls from people from damn near every income group to cease and desist with paying rent. There are calls to stand in solidarity thanks to coronavirus putting millions of Americans out-of-work and thus rendering them unable to come up with the rent. Heaven forbid, anyone other than American descendants of slavery be forced into homelessness.

And so, once again, what we have here is a “When they came for the Black folks, I did not speak up because I’m not Black, but now that they’ve come for my ass, SOLIDARITY RENT STRIKES EVERYONE!,” scenario? Really??!! Y’all want to go there?! Now that you can’t pay YOUR rent, we are all to sit together for our kumbaya moment and not pay rent? You see, you can do the shit when it impacts you on a personal level, but when it’s just impacting THOSE people over there, well..now..what’s the problem? The problem, as you can clearly see, is that what comes around, goes around and now that the shit is hitting the fan in a big ass way for those who are not just American descendants of slavery, but for millions of OTHER Americans, it is now time to band together against unfair landlords who still expect their rent during a time of extreme crisis. Never mind the fact that Black people have been experiencing a crisis long before coronavirus reared its viral head and no one called for “SOLIDARITY AGAINST GENTRIFICATION!” No one said how UNFAIR it was for white landlords to displace millions of American descendants of slavery so that upper crust whites could come in and take over where poor Black folks used to live. That shit was allowed to ramp up and in spades, hence why mass homelessness of American descendants of slavery escalated into an epidemic.

Millions of American descendants of slavery are already homeless and I don’t even know where many of them have gone because since entire states are on lockdown, what the hell does that mean for the homeless? Homeless shelters have been putting people out due to the fact that multiple people residing in close quarters is a breeding ground for coronavirus. In Las Vegas, the homeless are being moved to a parking lot since yet another homeless shelter closed.

Las Vegas parking lot turned into ‘homeless shelter’ with social distancing markers

Images of homeless people sleeping in a converted parking lot in Las Vegas have sparked criticism, even as the city officials describe an “emergency situation” and say the solution was the best option after another shelter was forced to close amid the coronavirus crisis.

But now that coronavirus is causing tens of millions of Americans of all stripes to file for unemployment, including the self-employed; business owners, we must all act as one. We must strike back at the landlords who are being totally unreasonable in expecting people to pay their rent during a pandemic when millions are on lockdown. How is that your fault, right? How was it the fault of those Black people who were put out of their homes thanks to rising rents that they could not afford? Where was the solidarity with them in their hour of need? But now that the shit ain’t looking so good for millions and seeing as how there is no end in sight, it is now time for a movement to gather steam against really, really bad, unreasonable landlords who also have mortgages and bills to pay. They must find another way to pay those bills while you don’t pay the landlord. The rallying cry is, “Well, the non-essential courts are closed and so they cannot take you to court anyway.” Okay, but when the shit is back up and running, you know that out on the street you go, right, and you don’t want to have to sit next to THOSE people whom you simply ignored when they were and still are going through THEIR crisis. It ain’t so fun to deal with that kind of shit now, is it? You never thought that you’d be facing eviction because you’re not one of THOSE people. Well, you’re facing it now and you’re scared senseless. You’re banding together because you’re terrified to face this alone. You need all the support that you can get because there’s no way in hell that you’ve got the gonads to go it alone and attempt to fight a landlord to let you stay in your home without paying rent. Safety in numbers, right? Well ain’t you just the scared shitless shit?!! Never mind the fact that you can still remember THOSE people holding up cardboard signs asking for spare change as you tried hard to ignore them as you made your way inside Starbucks to get your caffeine fix and then to your job you went; that job that no longer exists because the doors are closed and may never open again. So now, it’s RENT STRIKE TIME!

You shameless shits are something else. Even your signs to display your solidarity in rent strikes are white. Yep, if you’re in with this rent strike movement, hang a white sheet outside to show your solidarity in us all being in this rent strike thing together, eh? Where were the white sheets when the Black folks were being pushed into homelessness? Where were the letters to landlords telling them that the shit they were about to do was wrong? Where were the cries to cease and desist with gentrification? There were none, hence why there is such an epidemic of Black homelessness in this hellhole. But now the cries for landlords to cease and desist with evictions is deafening. Even restaurant owners are having to close up shop and file for unemployment. I saw a white man on the local news talking about how hard it’s been for him to try to speak to anyone to receive unemployment benefits because he cannot simply fill out an online form because of his special circumstances of being self employed and not having had a salary. Oh the moaning and wailing, I can just imagine that’s going on now. Not to mention the cops are stating that the majority of calls they get are for domestic violence. Can’t pay the rent, can’t entertain the kiddies, can’t go out, the shit is getting real and now that you’re finally woke because you’ve got no goddamn choice, it is time to ACT. So a rent strike, it is. Yeah! Good luck with that because the same hard hearted assholes that saw nothing wrong in putting American descendants of slavery out of their homes are what you are up against. Do you seriously think that they are going to treat your broke asses any better than they treated those who look like me? Yeah! Get back to me on that, why doncha! And by all means, continue to look to your lord and savior, racist-in-chief Donald Trump for some help and your asses will indeed, find yourselves making use of that sheet to lie on at a parking lot in Las Vegas or wherever the hell else the homeless are being allowed to make use of during this crisis. You will never understand that “What comes around, goes around.” Karma is a bitch, ain’t she!

Flight Attendants Say, “Yoo Hoo! We Are Spreading Coronavirus!”

All flights need to be grounded. As long as flights are taking off, the spread of coronavirus will continue because inside those cabins, there is no fresh air. Everyone is breathing the same air and so airplanes are causing coronavirus to spread, exponentially, and not only just among the plane’s crew, but also among the plane’s passengers. What is going to happen when pilots start falling ill? Planes are not going to be able to take off then. And if flight attendants are falling ill, so will pilots because they are in close contact with one another. Has no one thought of that?

“We’re Definitely Spreading It”: Flight Attendants Fear They Are Losing The Fight Against Coronavirus

In interviews and emails with TIME, more than a dozen flight attendants describe a continuing shortage of basic protection and a confounding lack of guidance over how to do their jobs without spreading the disease. Their gravest concern: that after weeks of working without proper supplies, they have been exposed to thousands of cases and in turn become primary transmitters to the hundreds of thousands of Americans who continue to fly every day. “It’s awful, because we know we’re definitely spreading it, seat to seat, city to city, person to person, hotel to hotel,” one Atlanta-based flight attendant who has been in the job for 15 years tells TIME.

That is just horrible! AGAIN, all flights should be grounded, but because capitalism, somehow, must never completely grind to a halt, the spread of coronavirus continues, unabated. This shows you just how concerned this country’s ‘leadership’ is about getting a handle on coronavirus.

And as if that is not bad enough, this next story shines a glaring light on the need for the airline industry to be grounded.

As coronavirus cases grow, hospitals adopt a system to rank patients for treatment
With the peak of Covid-19 infections still ahead and medical supplies still scarce, hospitals and physicians are gearing up for a nearly impossible challenge: deciding who gets a life-saving ventilator and who doesn’t.

The demand for ventilators has skyrocketed in intensive care units across the country as coronavirus patients have flooded in. Typically, adult patients will stay in the ICU — and on a ventilator — for only three to four days, as one Connecticut doctor explained, but Covid-19 patients need them for up to two or three weeks, dramatically increasing demand.

What people don’t seem to understand is that the coronavirus is not the only problem, the problem is that sick people who need ventilators won’t get them because the coronavirus has made the shortage of ventilators, worse. People who ordinarily would need to be on ventilators and who do not have coronavirus will find themselves left without them and so others who would have otherwise lived, will die due to a lack of ventilators. And those ‘hospital ships’ that were supposed to relieve overcrowded hospitals, well, they aren’t doing the job. Due to governmental red tape, those hospital ships are nowhere near capacity when it comes to taking over as backup facilities for hospital patients who don’t have coronavirus.

This is almost a perfect tsunami of failures, outrageous failures in the so-called, richest country on the planet with the most military bases of any other country, with the most bloated military budget of all other countries combined and yet in a crisis, the military is useless. In fact, the military is so useless, a warship docked in Guam is loaded down with coronavirus cases and the captain of the ship was fired simply because he was a ‘good’ captain who was trying to save the lives of his crew when he sent a letter to navy officials asking them to let his men go into isolation on Guam. His letter went unanswered until it was published by the media and that is when his crew was allowed to leave the ‘death ship’ and go into quarantine. So in other words, the captain was fired for trying to save the lives of his crew and we are to believe that those same degenerate shits that had no problem ignoring the fact that sailors were contracting a deadly contagion and were collapsing, to give a shit about the rest of US? Seriously? This is why the response to coronavirus has been so negligible, because those worthless shits don’t give a damn about us. The only thing they’ve tried to do is to mitigate the fallout for the corporate world; Wall Street. That stimulus bill is not helping average Americans who are being adversely impacted by all of this. Just read what flight attendants have to say about how they are treated during this pandemic. They are afraid to speak out for fear of reprisal; for fear of losing their job. They can’t even tell people that they have coronavirus even as they assist the disabled and elderly on board planes. They are helping to cause the very population that has been touted as the face of coronavirus to breathe their last because they are breathing coronavirus onto the elderly and the disabled. And the government and the airline industry is very much aware of that, but has the shit ceased? Hell no!

Americans are more terrified of losing their jobs than they are of losing their lives since they will continue to go into work knowing that they stand a greater chance of contracting this killer contagion. Everything should have ground to a halt. That is why China was able to get a handle on its coronavirus cases, but because we live in a country that puts profits over people and always will, we will continue to see cases of coronavirus grow, not wane. Americans have become so conditioned to head to work despite all hell, that they are willing to sacrifice not only themselves to a contagion, but their families and their fellow Americans and yet, many will hail themselves as heroes for continuing to report to work to move asses around the country who should stay put and not continue to spread this virus to all and sundry. What sense does that make? None! We are a nation of insane, idiotic, mindless worker drones! That is quite obvious. What is so great about that?

Why is Amazon still open despite the fact that it no longer has ESSENTIAL items to sell? Warehouse workers are falling ill with coronavirus and yet are still expected to stand on the warehouse floor and fill orders for nail polish, toys and games. Those are non essential items. No one in America gives a damn about anyone else because if they did, the uproar to shut all of this shit down would be deafening, but is it? Hell no! And the reason why is because ‘stuck at home American’s still want fun and games delivered to their door and damn the consequences. That’s how we roll!

What I am glad about is the fact that the rest of the world is watching this total lunacy go down and has finally gotten clued in as to how deranged Americans are and are realizing that our ways are not to be emulated. They are realizing that the countries that this shithole has vilified are not the bad guys; this fucking shithole is. Countries that have been sanctioned by this shithole are finally receiving help from other countries despite being sanctioned by this hellhole. No country on this planet should follow in the footsteps of this one and if coronavirus has done nothing else, it has shown this fucked up country for what it really is; a dumb, stupid schoolyard bully that uses its military might to get what it wants from all others and when it has to stand alone and figure shit out, it blames others instead of standing up and admitting to its faults. And we have many. And don’t a goddamn one of you Americans doubt that shit. “American exceptionalism” is clearly a myth. What is so exceptional about being #1 in coronavirus cases? I rest my fucking case!

As Usual, Black People Have To Show How It’s Done By Walking Off The Job At Amazon

White folks want to always drone on and on about how they take the initiative in order to get things done. Oh you take the initiative alright when it comes to fucking up our lives while we have to take the initiative to fight against you for our right to even exist in this shithole called, Amerikkka. But it is mostly Black people who are having to fight for their right to exist while working at Amazon warehouses where they are expected to fulfill NON-ESSENTIAL orders with many of their co-workers falling ill with coronavirus.

Michigan Amazon workers walk off the job as 3rd coronavirus case confirmed at facility

 

Amazon workers at the distribution center in Romulus, Michigan, walked off their jobs Wednesday at noon in response to the company’s failure to protect the health of its employees amid the coronavirus outbreak.

Recently, two positive cases of coronavirus have been found at the DTW1 fulfillment center and a third was confirmed early Wednesday morning.

Mario Crippen, a leader of the walkout and a worker at the DTW1 fulfillment center, took to the microphone and said the company should not continue to sell non-essential items. However, many essential items are out of stock.

So let me get this straight, Amazon is not making those workers continue to put themselves and their families at risk by working to sell ‘essential’ items, they are keeping those workers on the warehouse floor to send lazy ass motherfuckers some stupid shit that could wait. More than likely those workers’ lives are on the line over sending out nail polish, games, toys and other shit of the like for the ‘shelter in place’ crowd to entertain themselves and their little hellions. I would walk the fuck out too!

How in the world can Amazon state that it is doing everything possible to make sure that its employees are protected and working in a safe environment when not one, not two, but three employees all working at the same facility have tested positive for COVID-19? Spouting useless rhetoric from a form letter does nothing when the health and safety of workers are meaningless to employers as is the case with Amazon.

And AGAIN, I reiterate as I’ve done multiple times, I have NEVER in my life ordered a goddamn thing from Amazon and I never will. I don’t give a damn if I have to go around butt ass naked, never will I encourage the flagrant abuse and contempt for those who must work in an Amazon warehouse by purchasing a goddamn thing from Amazon. But apparently, the rest of this world is filled with brain dead, lazy ass motherfuckers who could care less about anyone so long as their fucking games, toys, nail polish and other stupid shit is heading out of Amazon warehouses and if they contain coronavirus, shut the fuck up! You asked for this shit and now you’re going to get it because it is quite obvious that Amazon doesn’t give a fuck about its customers because those sick employees ‘laid hands’ on those products that are coming to your door via a delivery driver who has touched a package that also probably contains coronavirus and so the spread of this contagion continues.

When will you stupid dumb fucks ever wake up from your hypnotic stupor and get with the program that Amazon workers are not going to be the only ones impacted? When you order shit, that shit you order has the potential to be carrying an extremely lethal contagion and despite what those in the medical field are recommending, I have seen plenty of people touch shit and then touch their faces. Sometimes, it is just a reflex action since some people have been doing that for too damn long and can’t stop now.

But as usual, I digress, there is picture after picture of American descendants of slaves taking the initiative to try and take care of their health and those of their loved ones by refusing to put themselves and their families at risk despite the obvious financial consequences they face. While the whites are running for the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts, Black people are expected to still stand somewhere in a warehouse next to the coronavirus sick just so that they can send out your fucking games and toys for your brats, is that about right? I would ask how do you whites sleep at night, but I know how you can sleep at night. In order for something like this to keep you up, you must first have to have a conscience, a heart, empathy, compassion, a moral compass and humanity and those are ALL the things you whites lack, down to the last one of you. And so what can I expect but what I see from you since I know that you are the most cold sludged (you don’t have blood) parasites ever to slither and crawl across this planet and that is why I don’t have a problem calling you debased rejects from who the hell knows where whatever I damn well please since nothing I could say could hurt your feelings because you must first have feelings in order for them to be hurt and you have none!

Black folks otherwise known as American descendants of slaves, I beg of you to stand in solidarity with one another through these tough times. I know how  tough it is. I know that things are bad for us. Hell! They’ve always been bad for us because just like I read earlier today, “when Amerikkka catches a cold, we catch pneumonia.” That shit is so goddamn true, it ain’t even funny. Please, I beseech you to hang in there. Hold tight to one another, help whenever you can and like everything else that’s been thrown at us, we have managed to get through it. We have always been the face of poverty, strife, suffering, homelessness, hunger, incarceration, drug addiction because the whites would have it no other way, but also remember that through it all, we are still here. Though many of us have fallen, many who paved the way for us to be here today, suffered hell on earth as well. We can but continue to struggle on in the face of hatred from an insane enemy the world will never have firsthand knowledge of as we do. This world’s people only get a taste of the sheer hell that these rabid beasts called, whites’ visit on us. We get the shit, up close and personal.

Finally, though we flounder and some of us will fall there will also be those of us who survive just like we always do and so stand proudly on that strike line. Refuse to be the face of coronavirus, if you can help it. Just like one of you said in the video, you are not the Red Cross, you are not a hero and so therefore, you are not obligated to stand somewhere on a warehouse floor and contract a killer virus just so that you can send some damn nail polish and toys to some parasite that wants you dead anyway. You are not expendable. You are not going to endanger your health and safety and that of your family members for multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos’ ass and those filthy ass whites and some dumb Black folks that helped him get to that status. He nor they are risking their lives on warehouse floors to get non-essential items out and neither should you. Tell them ALL to “Go straight to hell!” Those motherfuckers can just do without, we have to. And fuck all y’all motherfuckers out there that love all up and down on some damn Amazon and act like nothing existed before that goddamn bullshit. You’re all pathetic worms for jumping on the goddamn Amazon bandwagon. Too bad, logic and thought left the building and its place, we now have, apathy, complacency and laziness. More’s the goddamn pity.

This poem is for MY Black folks out there and you know who you are!

When You Get Tired….!

 

When you get tired of dying before your eighteenth birthday
 and when you’re tired of hearing that you’re worthless anyway,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the fire in your soul
 will burn through your body that is four hundred years old.

When you get tired of police brutality and the injustice of gentrification,
 and when you get tired of the school-to-prison pipeline of no education,
 that protest sign, you will put down and the marching on tired feet
 will not be enough to quench the thirst for liberation and you won’t accept defeat.

When you get tired of the National Guard getting called out to stop you
 and when they fire the shots at your tired, worn-out body, though that’s nothing new,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you must heed the words of Malcolm X.
For no man can continue to surrender to ropes tightened around innocent necks.

And when you get tired of mass incarceration because of the color of your skin
 and when the cops are on your ass from sun up to sun down, yet again,
 that protest sign, you will put down and you will listen to the anger in your heart.
For no Black man, woman or child can resist the revolution and you must take part.

And when the smoke has cleared and so many lie dead or wounded from the fight
 and when you think that what you did was all for nothing and that good is never right,
 that protest sign that you put down, shove it up the white man’s ass and turn around
And torch everything in sight; every white man’s asset, burn it to the ground!

When you get tired, my Black brothers and sisters, you will realize that protest signs, marches and hands raised in the air is not enough. When you get tired of hearing that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., is to be revered for his non-violent stance of supplicating himself to his enemy and encouraged you to do likewise, you will then realize your only course of action and you will take it. The white man knows this and that is why he is hell-bent on incarcerating you off the streets; that is why he is hell-bent on donning that blue or brown uniform, once he sheds his white sheet, and commences to riddle you with hundreds of bullets. He knows what’s coming. You don’t. Not yet. But you will. Yes, that’s right. He already knows what his fate is and who is going to seal it, but you don’t. Not yet. But you will. And when you do, it is game over for him and he knows that!

I don’t even call it violence when it’s in self defense; I call it intelligence. –


I wrote that poem, as you can see, in 2015 and today, the whole world is in the grips of a pandemic. Take this time to act because as confusion reigns and the government is trying to lock us all down, either our rights will never be regained from this,(the few we have) or we will forage a new path because a new path is what is needed. Look around you, the time is ripe. In multiple states, there are calls for rent strikes. In multiple states, there are calls for strikes, walk-outs, sit-outs and the momentum is building. People are sick of this shit! This is exactly what we needed to happen. Corporations get bailed out to the tune of billions while millions of mostly Black low wage workers are being handed a measly $1,200 if and when the IRS gets around to it. Also, those who are seniors/veterans/disabled are being told that they will have to file a tax return since many of them are so low income, there has been no need for them  to ever file a tax return. The military is fucked up to the point whereas the pentagon is refusing to admit to how many soldiers are actually down with coronavirus. In some states, the doors of jails are opening to release prisoners due to the spread of coronavirus.

Soon kkkops will be falling down with coronavirus. First responders are coming down with this. Even in this dead ass burg, it was announced that a firefighter has coronavirus. Pretty soon, homes and businesses on fire will be burning the fuck up because there’ll be no one to put them out. So, in other words, strike while the iron is hot! The uber rich ain’t circling the damn oceans in their super yachts for nothing or they are sitting in so-called luxury underground bunkers trying to wait this shit out. One goddamn flaming hypocritical piece of filthy shit billionaire had the gonads to post a pic of himself sailing on his yacht talking about, “What a way to escape the coronavirus.” The outcry over that was so damn loud, the filthy fucker took the pic down. They are laughing at us over the fact that they can just escape in their yachts and bunkers and mansions in the Hamptons, the mountains and the deserts and leave us all to continue plodding along enriching their pockets as we risk contracting this virus while their shit gets bailed out. Fuck that!

If we fail to take this golden opportunity, we will never forage a new path because believe me, if they ever get a handle on this coronavirus, the shit is still not going to return to ‘normal’ because since the government thinks it has effectively locked us all down, (for our own good according to them) do you seriously think that they won’t up the ante if and when this virus is under control? Exactly!

 

I Guess Former Governor Of Alaska, Sarah Palin, Is Vindicated Since It Would Appear That Her Infamous ‘Death Panels’ Are Here!

 

Since coronavirus reared its viral head in the U.S. months ago, and is causing havoc, pandemonium, bedlam and chaos, hospitals, by virtue of the federal government not providing enough funding for ALL who are going to need medical care, are going to start deciding who gets treatment and who merely receives palliative care.

It’s no different from New York: ‘Urban centers nationwide gird for catastrophic virus outbreak

Underscoring the precarious situation in Detroit, the Henry Ford Health System drafted a grim letter to patients and their families explaining the hospital’s calculations if it doesn’t have enough equipment to treat everyone.

“Some patients will be extremely sick and very unlikely to survive their illnesses even with critical treatment,” the letter explained. “Treating these patients would take away resources for patients who might survive.”

Among those who would not be eligible were those suffering severe heart, lung, kidney or liver failure, as well as those with terminal cancer. They would get palliative care, the letter said.

For those of you who don’t know what palliative care is, it is merely keeping the dying as comfortable as possible as they breathe their last.

And so, we have come to the dreaded Sarah Palin ‘death panels’; the making of decisions on who receives treatment based on their condition and if their condition is already fucked up, those patients will receive NO care if they are hospitalized with coronavirus.

Remember this little gem from what we all assumed was dizzy ass herself, Sarah Palin? She doesn’t sound so dizzy now, does she? Those ‘death panels’ of hers were considered to be a myth, but they are a ‘myth’ no more, at least in Detroit.

Death panel” is a political term that originated during the 2009 debate about federal health care legislation to cover the uninsured in the United States.[1] Sarah Palin, former Republican Governor of Alaska, coined the term when she charged that proposed legislation would create a “death panel” of bureaucrats who would decide whether Americans—such as her elderly parents, or children with Down syndrome—were “worthy of medical care”.[2] Palin’s claim has been referred to as the “death panel myth”,[3] as nothing in any proposed legislation would have led to individuals being judged to see if they were worthy of health care.[4]

Let me focus on the last sentence for a minute. “Palin’s claim has been referred to as the “death panel myth,” as nothing in any proposed legislation would have led to individuals being judged to see if they were worthy of health care.

Hmmmm..Now let’s read what’s coming out of the Henry Ford Health System again, shall we?

“Some patients will be extremely sick and very unlikely to survive their illnesses even with critical treatment,” the letter explained. “Treating these patients would take away resources for patients who might survive.” Among those who would not be eligible [to receive care for their coronavirus symptoms would be those who] were  suffering severe heart, lung, kidney or liver failure, as well as those with terminal cancer. They would get palliative care, the letter said.

Now after reading the above in italics, what would you call what is about to go down? An act of kindness? Weeding out the wheat from the chaff? Making sure that only the strong survive? “Death panels” by ‘virtue’ of a hospital’s decision as to who is too sick to receive care for their coronavirus symptoms thanks to a dearth of needed medical supplies? It would appear that ‘death panels’ wins, hands down and the other questions, get in line.

According to the Henry Ford Health System in Detroit, these drastic measures must be taken since the federal government has been derelict in its duty to provide hospitals with the essential equipment they need to meet the needs of ALL sick patients regardless of their condition upon admission during this pandemic. In other words, only the strong will survive. Those who are weak as in immunocompromised or with other underlying health conditions will be allowed to die without receiving any necessary care whatsoever in attempts to cure them of coronavirus.

So to those of you out there who have any of the medical conditions that I have mentioned, remain indoors and away from any contact with persons who have been out and about and who have not heeded ‘shelter in place’ orders as you will be the first ones to be allowed to die without any attempts at any pretense of treating your coronavirus symptoms if you come down with coronavirus. This shit is serious and no amount of pretending that it isn’t is going to make this shit go away.

This government and capitalism, and that includes corporate big heads that control and run this shithole and our dependence on that which we should never have become dependent on, is going to cause the demise of millions. There will not be enough N95 masks, surgical masks, hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes or other PPE (personal protection equipment) or ventilators to go around, despite what lying Donald Trump says to the contrary. Hospitals everywhere in Amerikkka are rationing those as I type this and there is no containment of this virus in sight. In fact, quite the opposite. So this pandemic is going to get worse, not better!

Read this and weep(some more)!

Spread of coronavirus accelerates in U.S. jails, prisons

Inmates have no access to gloves or proper masks and have only cold water to wash their hands, said Sean Hernandez, an inmate at Riker’s Island jail system who was convicted of attempted murder and has served eight years. He said inmates watched on Thursday as a guard coughed, her cheeks turned red and she collapsed to the ground.

As of Friday, at least 80 staff and 103 inmates at jails across New York City had tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. The virus appears to be spreading quickly through a jail system famous for its overcrowded cell blocks. Since Sunday, jails have reported 104 staff and 146 inmates with confirmed cases of COVID-19.

Now couple that with the fact that this shithole incarcerates more people than any other nation in the world, and there is your recipe for further disaster. According to the article, as of 2017, there are nearly 2.3 million mostly American descendants of slaves behind bars. What is being done to protect inmates, especially since the article also states that since some jails are letting prisoners go, they are not testing them to see if they are being released all eaten up with coronavirus? What do you think is going to happen when those prisoners are released and are standing next to you in a grocery store or in a drug store or in the few remaining businesses that are open since they have been deemed, “essential?” They are not going to just take coronavirus home to their loved ones, they are going to deposit coronavirus on buses and light rails, subways and any other means of public transportation that is still up and running. And since we ALL need food, they are going to be standing beside you and behind you in the grocery store check-out because we all know that symptoms of the virus don’t tend to show up overnight.

Folks, the writing is on the wall. You are going to be holed up for quite some time because the U.S. has put in place the “Perfect Storm” for pandemics to ravage this country, unabated since private sector businesses run this shithole and the private sector is all about profits over people. That’s capitalism for you. Every single public sector entity that was formed to aid and assist in times of horrific crises were de-funded by damn near every single Republican Administration. At least Obama created and funded an agency tasked to act in times of a pandemic crisis and along comes Donald Trump to de-fund and eliminate it right before a pandemic struck. You see, Donald Trump is a ‘private sector business’ kinda guy. Ain’t it just wonderful to have THAT in charge? This is why Sarah Palin’s ‘death panels’ are REAL. This is why there will be a rationing of care which will lead to health care workers deciding who is too sick to make it and so just let them die already. Never mind the fact that there may have been a sliver of a chance that some poor schmuck would have made it, we won’t ever know because the decision is not in our hands. Your grandmother’s life is going to become a roll of the dice. Is she a viable candidate to survive the virus with her underlying health conditions? Yes? No? Make her as comfortable as you can while she lies on that stretcher and breathes her last; palliative care. This is what we as a society has come to. We are why we have come to this and so don’t now turn around and say that you weren’t warned because even dizzy ass Sarah Palin called it when she said that ‘they’ would create a “death panel” of bureaucrats [aka health care workers in this instance] who would decide whether Americans—such as her elderly parents, or children with Down syndrome—were “worthy of medical care”.[2]

Sound familiar? Yeah, it does! Sarah Palin may not be the sharpest tool in the shed, but “even a broken clock is right twice a day.”
