These Folks Won’t Be Celebrating “Indian Extermination Day,” But Then Most Of Them Never Celebrated It Anyway

 

A high rise apartment fire yesterday morning took the lives of 5 people, most of whom were ‘refugees’/immigrants from Somalia.

5 Killed After Fire Breaks Out In Minneapolis High-Rise Building In Cedar-Riverside

The Minneapolis Fire Department says five people are dead and another three are hospitalized after fire broke out at a 24-story high rise overnight in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood.

Fire crews extinguished the three-alarm fire, which happened on the 600 block of Cedar Avenue South, in approximately 30 minutes. It was reported at about 4 a.m. inside a public housing building owned by the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority. The fire broke out on the 14th floor of the 191-unit structure.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s office released the names of four of the five victims early Wednesday evening, all cited as dying from smoke inhalation:

  • Amatalah Adam, 78

  • Maryan Mohamed Mohamud, 69

  • Nadifa Mohamud, 67

  • Jerome Stuart, 59

That building houses, almost exclusively, Somali so-called, ‘refugees’ as does most of the public housing high rises and other types of apartments and townhomes in Minnesota. Ninety-nine percent of ALL affordable housing in Minneapolis is occupied by those from Somalia. This is why those of us who were born here and who paid taxes in this shithole cannot get up out of homelessness because all of the affordable housing units have been given to people who boarded a plane and were brought here to sit all up on our tax dollars while our people walk the streets, homeless.

I was just in Minnesota earlier this month and I stayed at a homeless shelter for one night and so I can tell you that the only people who were sitting all up in that homeless shelter were descendants of slaves and some poor whites. There was not ONE Somali refugee/immigrant sitting all up in there enduring homelessness and some more shit. And so I would dearly love for someone to explain to me why it is that those of us who have fallen on hard times and need assistance cannot receive that assistance because our government is busy assisting, with our tax dollars, folks that the government has dragged, willingly, over to this shithole?

And so read this!

People working low wage jobs cannot afford those rents and many, many people in Minneapolis have to have roommates just to make ends meet. I have heard horror stories of roommates stealing everything not nailed down and leaving in the middle of the night. There are so many people who have had horrible experiences just trying to be housed, it is beyond ridiculous!

If this is the season of charity and some more shit, then charity begins at home. You cannot state that there is a homeless epidemic of monstrous proportions among natural born citizens of this shithole and then cross an ocean to drag others here and ‘house’ them while stepping over those who were born here and who are working, but who cannot afford the cost of skyrocketing rents. How does that make any goddamn sense at all?

While I was in Minnesota, I saw an Indian man try and board a city bus and the poor man was pushing a dilapidated walker up onto the bus and the walker was too short for him and at the same time, he was trying to keep his pants up, but the poor man’s pants fell down and his leg was almost completely covered in blood. He must have fallen, hurt himself and was trying to get to a hospital via a bus. Some guy was trying to help him get on the bus when from the back of the bus, a Latino yelled, “What’s the holdup?” Seriously? What’s the holdup? I yelled back at him, “The police station is right across the street, I’m going to call them and ask them to check your immigration papers, how’s that for a holdup?” He shut the fuck up!

A Black man tried to help the Indian man up on the bus and the bus driver told the Indian man to pull his pants up and asked him where he was going. The Indian man stated that he was trying to get to the hospital. The bus driver told him that he was going in the wrong direction. And so the Indian man started to get off the bus and I just wanted to cry.

The Black man who had helped him stated that “he was just a bum.” I said, “Seriously? That man is a human being. He is someone’s father, son, brother, uncle and you sit there and say that when you know what we go through. Are you serious?” He then hemmed and hawed and shut the fuck up. But even still, when he got up to exit the bus, I thanked him for helping the Indian man off the bus and the bus driver did as well.

What the hell is wrong with us when we see nothing wrong with whites dragging others asses over here and put them above those whose land they stole in the first place, and will also put them over those whose ancestors were dragged over here, kicking and screaming?

If anyone should be housed by the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority, it should be the Indians and American descendants of slaves. If there are any available affordable housing units left, then the whites can drag whomever they want to drag over to this shithole, but you take care of your own first. You don’t grab someone from a foreign land, put them on a plane and then put them in public housing while passing by homeless Indians and American descendants of slaves. And believe me, the only people who are in homeless shelters are American descendants of slaves and a few poor whites who have been deemed worthless by other whites. That is all I saw in the homeless shelter I stayed in for one night.

So, if you think that those who burned to death in that high rise apartment fire were just, coincidentally, mostly Somali, think again. The majority of those housed by our tax dollars are Somali. American descendants of slaves and Indians need not apply. Last year, an Indian woman, Pamela Rivera died because she was in a homeless encampment in Minneapolis. Why wasn’t she in this fucking building? This land was hers. Why did Somalis take precedence over a woman whose land was stolen from her by whitey pasty-ass? Did you read that? Pamela Rivera, an Indian; an Indigenous woman died in a homeless encampment because no one could find housing for her and yet as you can see, whites dragged willing Somalis over here and put them in affordable housing high rises while Pamela Rivera, an INDIAN, was somewhere struggling to get through homelessness and she didn’t make it. What fucking sense does this make???? But you are sitting somewhere on your ass eating a dead bird and talking about how we should ALL be thankful???!!!! Fucking get the fuck outta here with THAT bullshit! Yeah! Tell that fucking shit to Pamela Rivera about how she should be thankful that this land that her people owned was stolen by the likes of you pasty-assed fuckers and how she should be so thankful that she is now six feet under thanks to said pasty-assed fuckers dragging goddamn Somalis over here and housing them while leaving the Pamela Riveras to make it or NOT and she did NOT!

And so no, I do not weep for those dead Somalis because they had no goddamn business over here when we have a homeless crisis of the magnitude that we have. But don’t take my word for who is homeless, just look at videos of interviews of the homeless and that will clue you in and newsflash, you will NEVER see someone interviewing one of those ‘refugees’ from Somalia. But Trump’s base is sitting somewhere listening to his lies about how he is cracking down on those who are let into this country. If that were the case, he’d be sending those who are here, packing. That would help to at least put a dent in the wait list for affordable housing units because refugees are given preferential treatment and so they get the affordable housing slots that are paid for by our tax dollars.

Again, it makes no sense to know that we have a homeless epidemic, but this country is dragging ‘refugees’ over here and giving them the few remaining affordable housing units while moaning and whining that they don’t know what to do about the issue of mass homelessness all across this country. Seriously? Stop dragging people from other countries over here, feeding them, housing them, clothing them, giving them access to free health care and free housing that’s paid for by those of us who are now homeless and some more shit. For starters, that’s what the fuck you can do!

And you can call me an insensitive asshole until the cows come home, go back out and come back home again, I don’t fucking care! Someone has to say what needs saying and I am damn well going to be that someone. I am tired of this shit! Those news reporters who reported on this story know the goddamn truth, but do they ever report the truth? Hell fucking no! Only people like me try and get the truth out there while the ‘powers that be’ consistently try and shut us down, push what we say to the side because the truth of what’s going down is ugly as maggot coated shit!

Homelessness ain’t no fucking joke! Believe me, I tried it and it ain’t a fucking picnic or a cake walk. And if things don’t start getting better, which they’re not, many of us are headed in that direction and, AGAIN, believe me, you really don’t want to go there!

As you can see, I did not lie when I stated that the majority of those who are represented in that high rise are Somalis. How many ADOS do you see? Keep looking.

Are there any ADOS in this next picture?

Nope! No ADOS there!

What about here?

No ADOS there either. You see, this is why ADOS are heavily represented in homeless shelters and are in there being treated like shit!

What about this next picture. Any ADOS in this one?

Nope, No ADOS in this one either. Somalis only need apply. ADOS report to homeless shelters.

And this shit continues!

More Somalis and they are about all you’re going to see standing in the building, coming out of the building or going into the building. AGAIN, as you can see, no American descendants of slaves need apply and believe me, Minneapolis has a serious homelessness epidemic but the Somalis are not caught up in homelessness. How is this right? They take preference over those who were BORN here!

And again!

Really? I will continue to expose this shit for what it is, preferential treatment for those who were flown over here as opposed to those whose ancestors were dragged over here, kicking and screaming. Whites want American descendants of slaves fucked up and some more shit and I re-state, I will continue to put this shit out there, front and center, goddamn it!

And so no, I don’t give a damn for these motherfuckers! I don’t give a damn for the whites who put this shit into play because they want to make sure that American descendants of slaves are out on the mean streets of these shitty ass cities, dying and some more shit! This is ALL done by design as you can plainly see.

Those shits in the above pictures had absofuckinglutely NOTHING when they boarded a plane in Somalia and were flown over here and so you tell me how they ended up taking over high rise apartment buildings, you tell me how they ended up owning and operating not one, but two malls in Minneapolis. You tell me how they own their own medical facilities. You tell me how they have been able to own and operate multiple restaurants. White pasty ass is behind THAT shit! Thousands of them still don’t even speak English and so you tell me how this was done! They are allowed to take the driving exam in THEIR language. Ain’t no goddamn road signs in Somali. American descendants of slaves are standing in the cold waiting on a bus while those pus head Somalis drive by them, splashing them and some more shit in minivans and SUVs; motherfuckers that came over here with not a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out, who can’t even speak the language and yet, they are doing better than millions of American descendants of slaves.  And they will continue to do so because it is what whitey pasty ass wants. Every other motherfucker on this planet is quite welcome to step on us, step over us while we are treated like shit, day in and day out. I am paying market rate rent. I am not on Section 8 or living in subsidized housing and look at what my fucking apartment looks like.

The government is not helping me pay for that and yet Somalis are sitting all up in high rise apartments when those slugs only had to crawl down out of a tree, hop on a plane and get housed. They’d probably never even heard of a toilet before getting on a goddamn plane. Hell! That goddamn building they live in, on fire, looks better than what I live in and the white slumlord even went up on the rent in the middle of my lease and I had to take his ass to court, but as you can see, the whites are fighting for those Somali motherfuckers, but American descendants of slaves? Fucking hell no! We are fighting every goddamn day just to exist in this shithole that our ancestors were dragged to. We are the ones who are the first to get fired and the last to get hired; the first to lose health insurance while our tax dollars are paying for some refugee/immigrants health care. What.the.fuck. Yeah! We got so goddamn much to be thankful for and if you believe that, then I’ve got some great beach front property for sale in Death Valley!

I Hate To Admit It, But Trump Is Right About Baltimore Being Rat Infested. He Should Know Because Jared Kushner Owns Hundreds Of Rental Properties That Have Failed Housing Code Standards, But Trump Is Also Right About Elijah Cummings

Now before you shoot the messenger, remember that I am quite often IN Baltimore and the shit that I have seen would curl your toes. In fact, this blog has more posts about Baltimore than I can shake a stick at. You can go here and here and here and here and here and read all about Baltimore. Now, what did Trump have to say about Baltimore, MD?

I was just in Baltimore last week. In fact, I put up a post about what I saw because what I saw made me mad as hell! And before anyone gets any bright ideas and gets to screeching and a hollering that I need to live in a place and not merely visit in order to write about it, I have lived in Baltimore, MD multiple times. The last time I lived in that city was September 2016 to August 2017 and I got out of there like the hounds of hell were chasing me; the crime is THAT bad.

When I used to go down to the subway station, big ass rats had practically overtaken the place. The so-called ‘World Famous Lexington Market’ has had to be shut down by the health department on at least two occasions for rat infestation. And the last one was recent. In fact, Lexington Market is so filthy, I refused to use the restrooms. But when I went back in April of this year, Lexington Market had been cleaned up and cleaned out. Most stalls were closed. The drug addicts had been sent packing as well as the Korean stall keepers. There were more Black stall keepers and I had not seen them since the mid 90s when the Koreans were running the Food Court at The Harbor Pavilions at Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and Black people were operating the stalls in Lexington Market. The whites decided to run the Koreans out of the Inner Harbor and by doing so, they ran the Black stall keepers out of Lexington Market by increasing the rents so that the Koreans could afford to open the stalls vacated by the Black people. Whitey parasite ass knows how to move us around like chess pieces on a board and that shit continues to this day. But I digress.

Even though Donald Trump cannot take the high road since we have all heard that migrants in southern border facilities are drinking out of the toilet, he is right in that Cummings should take his tired old ass back to Baltimore and figure something out because Baltimore is in decay and in decline. When we were there last week, we could not take the light rail to BWI airport because of a sinkhole in downtown Baltimore on Pratt Street. When I lived there, that same area had a street blow up and spew asbestos everywhere. Homicide averages are 300+ yearly. Drug addiction is off the charts. Baltimore has been declared ‘The Heroin Capitol’ of the U.S. Homelessness is also off the charts as is prostitution, gang violence and high school drop-out rates. You cannot pass by a person who has not been shot up or who does not know of a person who has not been shot up. The Department of Justice had to issue a consent decree because of rampant police brutality against Baltimore’s citizens. We all remember the Freddie Gray riots. So, Trump was not off base. In fact, he is not the only politician to expound on the evils of Baltimore, MD. Bernie Sanders did as well. But what Trump failed to say was that his own Housing and Urban Development Secretary, Ben Carson, is not doing his job since Baltimore, MD has the worst public housing complexes in America. Yeah Trump, focus on that! Your failed leadership has something to do with what ails Baltimore and so look inside your own filthy, stinking closet and clean it out! And throw yourself out because you’re garbage as is your HUD Secretary, Ben ‘had a lobotomy’ Carson.

Conditions in Maryland Public Housing Worst in the Country

Almost a third of public housing inspections in Maryland have resulted in failing health and safety scores. According to an analysis of federal data by The Associated Press, that’s the worst performance in the country. Old, rundown complexes in Baltimore are the main culprit. Federal and city data show that 22 of 37 Baltimore sites failed their most recent inspections.

And so that makes what Bernie Sanders said about Baltimore, all the more true as well.

But just a few years ago, Sen. Bernie Sanders — a candidate seeking the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination — took his own shots at Baltimore, a struggling Northeast city grappling with high rates of violent crime, drug abuse, poverty and political corruption.

“Anyone who took the walk that we took around this neighborhood would not think you’re in a wealthy nation,” Sanders said during a visit to the city’s West Baltimore section in December 2015, the Baltimore Sun reported. “You would think that you were in a Third World country.”

The independent U.S. senator from Vermont also referred to Baltimore as “a community in which half of the people don’t have jobs.”

“We’re talking about a community in which there are hundreds of buildings that are uninhabitable,” he added, according to the Sun.

I don’t recall hearing a blow up after Bernie Sanders made this statement because what he said is absolutely true and in fact the public housing inspection report backs Sanders up when he said, “hundreds of buildings are uninhabitable,” including public housing buildings. What is not being said is the fact that politicians like Cummings are NOT doing a damn thing to mitigate the many societal ills that are plaguing Baltimore or her citizens. Even the NAACP is headquartered on Mt. Hope Drive in Baltimore and is doing not a damn thing to help anyone in that city of mostly Black residents. In fact, I never heard of one positive thing that the NAACP has ever done FOR Baltimore. Add to that the fact that not one, but two of Baltimore’s Black mayors has had to step down amid scandals and so again, as much as I hate to admit it, Donald Trump is absolutely right in his depiction of Baltimore.

And just to show you exactly how accurate his assessment is, let’s get on with it.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

There are two Baltimores; the one the tourists see and the one I see and so once again, despite the fact that I hate what Trump said about Baltimore, he did speak the truth as did Bernie Sanders. Elijah Cummings is too filled with a sense of political power and has long since gave up on improving the city where he got his start in politics. Baltimore’s Black politicians should be ashamed of themselves, but they’re not. The people of Baltimore deserve better than what they are getting and yet it took Donald Trump to point out the obvious in order for Baltimore’s politicians to spout useless rhetoric about what they are doing FOR Baltimore. They are not doing a goddamn thing FOR Baltimore. They have only used her to further advance their political careers and when she was of no further use to them, they discarded her like she was a worn out whore who has been on the streets for too goddamn long.

The whites want that city for themselves and they don’t care who they have to crawl over to get it. They don’t care who they have to move out of their way to get it. And make no mistake, even though the political face of Baltimore is Black, whites are ALL over that city like flies on shit! And as you can see from the pictures that I have posted, I have been ALL over Baltimore and so don’t fucking tell me that Trump is wrong because the proof is above. Baltimore is indeed, a tale of two cities and the neglect of one of those cities is appallingly shameful and you know which one I’m talking about!

So shut the fuck up Trump and Cummings unless you are going to help a city that is being allowed to die by design. Fuck both you motherfuckers!

I just had to add this!

Jared Kushner owns lots of apartments in the Baltimore area. Some were infested with mice.

In a now-viral tweetstorm on Saturday, President Trump characterized Rep. Elijah E. Cummings’s Baltimore-based congressional district as a “rodent infested mess” where “no human” would want to live.

His criticism rang with a particular irony in Baltimore County, where the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner owns more than a dozen apartment complexes that have been cited with hundreds of code violations and, critics say, provide sub-standard housing to lower income tenants.

Kushner Companies, which started operating in Maryland in 2013, has owned almost 9,000 rental units across 17 complexes, many of them in Baltimore County, the Baltimore Sun reported earlier this year.

The properties generate at least $90 million in revenue annually. Kushner stepped down as CEO of the company in 2017, when he became a senior White House adviser.

In 2017, Baltimore County officials revealed that apartments owned by Kushner Cos. were responsible for more than 200 code violations, all accrued in the span of the calendar year. Repairs were made only after the county threatened fines, local officials said, and even after warnings, violations on nine propeties were not addressed, resulting in monetary sanctions.

That bastard’s properties were cited for mouse infestations, mold problems and maggots. And even though tenants tried to file a class action lawsuit, a ‘white’ judge denied their request. It wouldn’t have made any difference because my cousin was involved in a similar lawsuit and for his pains received $724.15 and this was considered a ‘windfall‘ by the attorney that is suing for more of the class action settlement in Attorney’s Fees. Poor people don’t stand a chance against these goddamn worthless ass racist vultures! And don’t even act like you don’t know who Jared Kushner is. He is Trump’s son-in-law; married to that bitch daughter of his named Ivanka and so he has not a goddamn leg to stand on when screeching or tweeting about the living conditions of people in Cummings district and Cummings has nothing to say for himself because he knew about this shit and yet said nothing! I am TOO fucking through!

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Donald Trump IS “The Perfect Storm”

 

What is the ‘perfect storm’ you ask?

The ‘perfect storm’ – a particularly bad or critical state of affairs, arising from a number of negative and unpredictable factors. – wikipedia.org

Donald Trump is most definitely a most negative and unpredictable factor which is why we are in the midst of a particularly bad, critical state of affairs.

So in other words, we are ALL about to die! Not two years from now, not one year from now, but this year because we are ALL going to be homeless, hungry, sick and destitute. Trump has managed, in just two years, to bring damn near everyone in America to their knees. 

His own government workers are calling in sick as in TSA personnel at the airport because they have been working without pay and have decided to apply for other ‘temporary jobs’ in order to tide them over. You know, those people who were put in place to keep you safe from terrorists by feeling you up real good and x-raying you before you board a flight and dispensing with your  unopened toothpaste because, well…that could be a bomb. Apparently, people often brush their teeth with bombs. Soon, no one will be concerned about your toothpaste or will they just make you wait in even longer lines before you are allowed to board that plane? Does this give you a clue to the fact that you are not being felt up or x-rayed because of terrorists, you are being felt up and x-rayed because the government can get away with doing this since you have been frightened into believing in some non-existent shadowy bogeyman even as your own government is more of an enemy to you than any other entity or ‘human’ on this planet could ever be since if the government refuses to pay the TSA agents, then that must mean that they are non-essential personnel. Just because they were ordered to report to work means nothing especially seeing as how it should have been expected that those workers would eventually have to do something to keep their lives from exploding into homelessness and hunger and no one gives a flying fart about that who are sitting all up in the White House and in the halls of congress.

But nevertheless, word is that some of you, because Trump demands a border wall, will not have to be felt up because there are not enough TSA workers to feel you up because they are calling in sick since they are not getting paid and can you believe it? The mortgage is still due, the gas and electric bills are still due and food needs to be put on the table for their families to eat. There are medical bills that need to be paid, car insurance, home owner’s and renter’s insurance need to be paid and the list is endless. But everything must grind to a halt because we need a border wall! Another sad fact is that government employees are maxing out their credit cards to keep afloat and when those are maxed out, they cannot even apply for food stamps, nor are they going to get their tax refund checks. Ain’t that something? Meanwhile, we all just wail and moan and gnash our teeth and max out the credit cards. It’s ALL good!

Millions face delayed tax refunds, cuts to food stamps as White House scrambles to deal with shutdown’s consequences

Food stamps for 38 million low-income Americans would face severe reductions and more than $140 billion in tax refunds are at risk of being frozen or delayed if the government shutdown stretches into February, widespread disruptions that threaten to hurt the economy.

The partial shutdown has cut off new funding to the Treasury Department and the USDA, leaving them largely unstaffed and crippling both departments’ ability to fulfill core functions.

To those of you who qualify for food stamps, I am so very sorry for your upcoming situation, because you won’t be able to put food on the table for your children since a border wall is much more important and as Trump tries to blame the Democrats for the ‘stonewalling’, (no pun intended), he owns this. This shutdown is his baby. The Democrats were not even in power in the House when the shutdown commenced and so how Trump can get away with blaming this fiasco on the Democrats is just beyond me. But then, he always blames his fuck ups on someone or something else. So, I guess he is staying true to form. But as usual, I digress.

How the shutdown is hurting some of America’s poorest families

Most of HUD’s routine enforcement activities have been suspended, including mandatory health and safety inspections of housing for low-income families, the elderly and people with disabilities, according to the shutdown contingency plan that HUD posted on its website. Public housing officials say they don’t know how long rental assistance payments will keep coming from the government, and a suspension could put millions of tenants at risk if the shutdown drags on into February. And if there are any problems in providing affordable housing grants to local and state governments, as well as nonprofit groups, there are few people on hand to resolve them, according to one furloughed staffer.

We already knew that the poor would be impacted first. Those who rely on food stamps and those who rely on HUD to help with rent subsidies are going to feel the pinch along with federal workers. The article also goes on to state that the shutdown will most likely make it difficult for HUD to acquire new landlords for the program because they will be unwilling to rely on what has proven to be unreliable; rent subsidies from the federal government.

This is just too horrible for words because I started blogging to bring attention to the plight of the homeless and I had to throw HUD under the bus, multiple times for their failure to maintain adequate, decent, safe and sanitary housing for mostly poor and disabled people. HUD has also failed tremendously in even putting a dent in eliminating homelessness which was supposed to have been its mission. And yet, homelessness is skyrocketing. Tent cities have formed all across America and now add to that, the folks who are housed, but who are now finding that they are sitting on a branch that’s about to break and send them spiraling back down into homelessness again. All over a border wall.

And all Trump can say to what he set in motion is:

Trump “said he’d keep the government closed for a very long period of time — months or even years,” according to Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer, who spoke to reporters in the White House driveway.
“Absolutely I said that,” Trump affirmed from the Rose Garden shortly afterward. “I don’t think it will, but I’m prepared.”
We don’t have months and we certainly don’t have years because there will be nothing left for anyone to want to attempt a border crossing to get. Thus far, there has been not one thing that could get the brain dead American sheeple to get up off their lazy, apathetic and complacent butts, but as this shutdown continues, more and more besides the poor and federal workers will feel the impact and as this snowball rolls down hill, it will get bigger and bigger and soon everyone will get caught up and when it explodes, it ain’t gonna be pretty!
Some mortgage loans are being held up due to the shutdown and so people are not able to close on houses. The EPA, which is ineffective anyway, is shuttering their doors. The USDA, the same. The IRS, the same. The Treasury Department, the same. And, GASP! even immigration courts have closed! I thought that was what the shutdown was all about, illegal immigration? How could this be? That the Immigration courts have closed when Trump is wreaking this much havoc over a border wall to keep out illegal immigrants from south of the border? Quite obviously, this is not about a border wall, but is all about a controlling, narcissistic, megalomaniac who enjoys being the center of attention and has to get his way even if it means destroying the very ship he captains. Can any of you imagine just how dangerous someone like that is? It would appear that we shall soon see.
Even Immigration courts have closed, forcing judges to indefinitely postpone hearings scheduled months in advance. There is already a backlog of over 800,000 cases. 
And finally, three people have been found dead in national parks that have remained open despite the shutdown. Forestry officials are forwarding letters to the Trump Administration requesting that national parks close due to the fact that there are just not enough forest rangers and other personnel to see to the safety of those who visit the parks as well as the wildlife that inhabit the parks. Toilets have overflowed. Trash is overflowing and the situation is getting more dire by the hour and even though it has been stated that an average of 6 people die each week in national parks, that figure is going to climb if the parks remain open. Meanwhile, the Trump Administration and congress continues in a ‘quien es mas macho‘, or in other words, “who is more macho?” game. One bright spot is that as Rome burns, it will bring capitalism to a screeching halt. Burn Rome, burn!

 

 

The Trump Administration Proposed Billions Of Dollars In Cuts To HUD While HUD’s Director, Ben Carson Orders A $31,000.00 Dining Set For His Office

 

Why is that jackass, Ben Carson, still at the helm of Housing and Urban Development(HUD)? Why is his wife Candy allowed to act as interior decorator of Ben Carson’s HUD office?

Ben Carson, the US secretary for housing and urban development (Hud), has scrapped an order for a $31,000 dining set for his Washington office amid a growing ethics controversy.”

Helen Foster, former Chief Administrative Officer, alleged to a whistleblower-protection watchdog that she lost her job partly as retaliation for her refusal in January and February last year to find a way to exceed $5,000 in spending on improvements to Carson’s office.

She said she was told by Craig Clemmensen, who was Hud’s acting director while Carson went through the Senate confirmation process, to find more money for use by Carson’s wife, Candy, and that “$5,000 will not even buy a decent chair”.

Five thousand dollars will not even buy a decent chair??!!! Seriously??!!! Whose ass is so precious that only a chair costing over $5000.00 is good enough for it? The ass contains the shithole and so something that’s used to pass waste from the body needs to sit in a damn chair that costs over $5,000.00? Meanwhile, read this and weep!

Following Foster’s reassignment, the department spent $31,000 on a dining table and accompanying items for Carson’s suite. The findings came after Donald Trump proposed billions of dollars in cuts to Hud’s budget, reducing programs for poor and homeless people.

Yes indeed, while Ben and Candy Carson are spending thousands of taxpayer dollars on new furnishings for them to sit their bougie ass down in Ben Carson’s HUD office, Donald Trump has proposed cutting billions of dollars from HUD’s budget that would have been destined to house poor and homeless people, thus making sure that those poor and homeless people remain without a home or have their housing choice vouchers ripped from them due to the inability of public housing authorities across this country to maintain their voucher assistance programs since the money will not be there.

Here’s an idea. Since we all know that the Carsons are not poor, they can outfit Ben Carson’s office any way they see fit so long as they foot the bill in its entirety. Who the hell do these people think they are? Royalty?

And who  had a thought in their head that Donald Trump would fully fund HUD? When has poor people ever mattered to the filthy rich? The poor will never matter to the Trumps of this world, hence the reason why there are so many poverty-stricken employees working for low wages that wouldn’t even keep a hamster in feed. But the plot thickens!

Carson’s department also signed a contract last year to spend $165,000 on “lounge furniture” for its Washington headquarters from the retailer OFS Brands of Huntingburg, Indiana, according to federal procurement records.

The president and chief of executive of OFS Brands, Robert “Hank” Menke, has made donations to Republican politicians including Mike Pence, the US vice president, who as Indiana governor in 2013 appointed Menke to a “blue ribbon panel” on transportation and infrastructure in the state.

Here enters cronyism as well as fraud, bribery and just absolute complete corruption; white collar crime that is seldom, if ever prosecuted because what rich white man is going to seek the prosecution of another rich white man that’s committing the same crimes he is? Hell! When the Wall Street bankers caused the 2008 economic collapse, did any one of those thugs see the inside of a prison cell? Hell no!

Vice President, Mike Pence, committed outright cronyism when he appointed Robert Menke to a “blue ribbon panel” on transportation and infrastructure” in return for $49,000 worth of campaign contributions to republican campaigns in Indiana and another $35,700 worth of campaign contributions to republican campaigns on the federal level.

And yet, this thug, Mike Pence, did not see the inside of a prison cell, but sits in Washington enjoying the status of Vice President to yet another thug, who sits in the Oval Office as Draft-Dodger-In-Chief. I just cannot make this shit up!

You Americans have the audacity to think that these corrupt, rich white men give a shit about any of you? Keep thinking that shit while you start your search in locating an empty spot to set up your permanent camping equipment. And believe me, there are hardly any empty spots left because we are in the midst of a homeless epidemic of epic proportions! Hell! Camping used to be a fun activity. Now, with nothing but thugs at the helm of this lopsided, stinking, sinking, shithole barge, camping is the new homelessness! But we are okay with dumb ass ‘brain surgeon’, Ben Carson attempting to sit his stupid ass down on a chair that must cost OVER $5,000.00 even as he also lounges around his Washington, D.C. office in furniture costing $165,000 while poor, homeless folks are locating a bridge to park their tent underneath since Trump is cutting the HUD budget for those programs that were intended to keep the poor housed, while letting his pick for HUD secretary order almost $200,000.00 in furniture for his office.

Meanwhile, everyone is sitting in a movie theater watching the absurd go down, not even caring about the shenanigans of this government that will cause many of them to become homeless. So, while the rich laugh at your ass, cushion their ass in plush chairs costing hundreds of thousands of dollars, you are sitting somewhere inside a movie theater wistfully gazing at a screen depicting fake ass shit even as the mailman is bringing you notification of the loss of your Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher thanks to Donald Trump ‘de-funding’ Housing And Urban Development(HUD).

And did you know that HUD is so underfunded that families with children are being forced to move into 1-bedroom units? Those pesky fire code violations are being ignored so that families will not be put out of their units due to exceeding maximum occupancy limits. This is just one example of how bad things are going to get and so I would snap out of that fantastical shit if I were you, bring your ass back down to earth and get with the program that this shit ain’t playing with you! Is Ben Carson, YOUR Black Panther when he proceeds to use funds that  could have been allocated to fund housing vouchers, but instead that money went to cushioning his and his wife’s ass in plush comfort? Go and see if “Wakanda’s” got some homeless tunnels for you to live in. Las Vegas most definitely has them, but there is a “NO VACANCY!” sign on the entrance! How fictional is that? Go find out! And while you’re at it, ask Donald Trump if he will house your homeless ass at Mar-a-Lago! Start laughing because that was one big ass joke! Donald Trump, housing the homeless at Mar-a-Lago, Trump Tower? That is funny!

“Poverty Is A State Of Mind!” Said Housing And Urban Development Chief, Ben Carson

Poverty is a state of mind
because what does it really matter
to Trump’s new housing chief
who is really the Mad Hatter?

You can’t fool yourself into believing
that your hunger pangs aren’t real.
You just keep telling yourself over and over
that on your empty plate is a meal.

The thing about mind over matter
is that it really doesn’t work.
When you lose your job and home,
Ben Carson is gonna smirk.

You see, it’s really funny to him,
he who has no brains at all
that your mind can’t make you rich
like that brain dead Neanderthal.

But what really takes the cake
is that this fool is the head of HUD.
He’s responsible for housing the poor,
I guess in houses made of mud.

This supposedly brilliant brain surgeon
says that “poverty is a state of mind.”
How in the hell did he operate on brains
when he is so obviously blind?

“I think poverty to a large extent is also a state of mind,” said HUD Secretary Ben Carson.

For the love of !!!!! Let me get this straight. If I lose my ‘good’ paying $7.25 an hour minimum wage job at Micky Ds because of automation and I told my landlord that I’m really not of a mind to be poverty stricken and homeless and so could he please accept my ‘great state of mind’ as payment for rent due, who in unholy hell thinks that my ass would not be sitting out on the streets in no time flat??!!!

If I lost my ‘great’ paying job at GM due to robotics taking the job and I could no longer afford the mortgage on my house, how about I go to the bank and tell them that I’m not of a mind to be poor and homeless and so could I just ‘bank’ on that mindset to get me to be able to stay in my home? What the hell is the banker going to say to that? “Get the hell out of my office with that bullshit and start packing!” That’s what the banker is going to say.

What the hell is wrong with us when we can hear this type of tripe and there not be an uproar? It is already bad enough that I’ve had to hear of Donald Trump’s budget proposal that guts food stamps, Medicaid and he’s even going after the disabled which should surprise no one seeing as how he made fun of the disabled on the campaign trail. But as usual, the apathetic and complacent Americans just sit back and wait until the shit hits the fan for their ass in particular in order to get to wailing and moaning. And we had the nerve just a few months ago to post some shit about, “When first they came for the Muslims, but I wasn’t a Muslim and blah, blah, blah…” And now, they’ve come for the food insecure, the sick and disabled and what are we doing about it? The usual. Not a goddamn thing, the apathetic and complacent shits we are! GEEZUS Goddamn Christ, I fucking give!!!

Oh and before I forget, Ben Carson also stated that people who have to make use of HUD public housing and Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers should “not live comfortably!” Believe me, they are doing anything but. And I have the pictures to prove it!

This was the result of a serious roof leak. I toured this apartment complex and 6 roofs caved in and management did not evacuate the people in the affected apartments because who the fuck cares about those people? These people did not have a ceiling left. But I suppose in the eyes of Ben Carson, this HUD Section 8 apartment was still too comfortable.
The leak in this apartment was so bad, the carpets had to be removed and the tenants had placed buckets down to capture the water. But of course, this is ‘comfortable living’, according to HUD Secretary Ben Carson

 

This is what was left of the sink and the kitchen. The pipe. Real ‘comfortable’ isn’t it? I’d want to live here! I’m sure Ben Carson would.
Great ceiling lighting. Not much ‘mood’ lighting. But who needs to be ‘comfortable’?
Here, we have ants coming from a panel in the hallway. ‘Comfortable’ living for ants anyway.
This ceiling leak is in a bathroom. You can ‘comfortably’ take your shower or bath knowing that the upstairs tenant’s filthy bath water could cascade down on you at any time. This feature will never appear in ‘Better Homes And Gardens’. For sure!

 

Does your bathtub come with a ladder? This one does. Will this bathroom get featured in ‘Better Homes And Gardens’? Never fucking mind. We ALL know the answer to that one! Fuck Ben Carson!

So, there you have it folks, ‘comfortable living’ as established by HUD Secretary, Ben Carson. He’s ALL heart, don’t cha know! Each picture here was taken in a HUD approved housing complex of some sort. Each had passed inspection and was deemed safe, sanitary and decent. This is what is considered living extremely well to the point of being ‘too goddamn comfortable’ by Ben ‘asshole’ Carson’ Fuck that house negro!

This Apartment Has Lots Of Am’ant’ities

ants 1 As you can see, this HUD subsidized apartment comes complete with its own ‘ant’ colony. All set up and waiting for you. It even passed inspection, so you don’t have to worry if they are those nasty, vicious ‘fire ants’. These are just your harmless, garden variety type.

bathroom ceiling one< Here, we have an extra bonus! A detachable bathroom ceiling just in case your water pressure is not enough, the upstairs tenants have no problem sharing their bath water with you. As it cascades down on you, enjoy the exhilarating feeling of someone else's filth. Just keep plenty of soap handy and remember this did pass inspection, so I'm sure there is nothing to worry about as far as infectious diseases from the upstairs tenant is concerned.

tub with ladder< This unit also comes with a ladder in your tub and according to the tenant who was in the unit, they did not know whether to treat it as a 'Wisconsin Dells' water splash adventure or what. They just know that it took over a month to turn their bathroom from a 'theme park' like atmosphere into a bathroom again.

In all seriousness, this is not how people should live. This unit did not have a 'Certificate of Occupancy' which is required in order for a HUD Section 8 Voucher to be issued, in other words, this was an 'unlawful occupancy'. The tenant who occupied this unit has paperwork from the City Inspections Division and Tenant Landlord Court declaring the unit unsafe due to electrical hazards and serious plumbing issues.

So HUD, is this really the best that your agency can do to ensure that people who are clients of your program are in safe, decent and sanitary housing, not to mention passed 'Housing Quality Standards' and is this the best that you can do with regards to making sure that taxpayer money is not ending up in the coffers of slumlords? Because from where I sit, it doesn't look like it.

Footnote:I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who are sharing their Housing and Urban Development related stories with me. I will continue to keep this in the spotlight.

“Attention! HUD(Housing and Urban Development)Employees, Do You Live Like This?

buckets of waterno kitchenroof collapse 2roof collapse 1
The pictures are extremely revealing as to how taxpayer money is being thrown at slumlords who are receiving subsidies and who are not keeping their units up to code. This is just one instance among millions. HUD employees would NOT live like this and yet, they have no problem with others who must. Partial roof collapses are serious and to have this occur shows a lack of preventive maintenance inspite of escalating rent.

The people who lived in the unit were not forced to leave until after another tenant contacted the Fire Department and apprised them of the situation. They were dispatched, went through the building and not only condemned that unit, but condemned nine others. The management of this apartment complex had no problem with the tenants living in this unit not having a kitchen sink and half of their apartment destroyed. As you can see, buckets were still capturing the water that was seeping from the roof leak. The floor coverings had to be taken up as it was carpeted and drenched. Management should have known better and yet, it took the Fire Department to condemn the units and initiate repairs which included new roofs for not one, not two, but six buildings in this particular complex. Each building was receiving HUD subsidies.

After reading the bio of Shaun Donovan, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development about his…well..I’ll let you read it for yourself…

Secretary Shaun Donovan

On January 26, 2009, Shaun Donovan was sworn in as the 15th United States Secretary for Housing and Urban Development.

He has devoted his career to ensuring access to safe, decent, and affordable housing, and has continued that effort in the Obama Administration. Secretary Donovan believes that America’s homes are the foundation for family, safe neighborhoods, good schools, and job creation.

His tenure as HUD Secretary has reflected his commitment to making quality housing possible for every American. Sworn in at a time when the foreclosure crisis had devastated American families, under Secretary Donovan’s leadership HUD has helped stabilize the housing market and worked to keep responsible families in their homes. The agency has instituted reforms that have solidified the Federal Housing Administration’s financial position and protected the taxpayer

…looks really good in print, but the reality is anything but and those who work at HUD, including Secretary Donovan know this.

This is really good PR!
I am sure that the homeless person in this photo op for Public Relations was warmed and comforted by the knowledge that Secretary Donovan deigned to notice him without a home. Although, to be fair…maybe, just maybe..Secretary Donovan was about to offer him an apartment just like the one shown in the pictures above. After all, the homeless person would be INside, well..wouldn’t he?
shaun & homeless

…and so I ask of HUD employees, are you willing to trade YOUR homes for the safe, sanitary and decent dwelling pictured at the top of this blog? I didn’t think so!
