Whites Burned Down The ALL Black City, Rosewood. Whites Also Burned Down The Black Wall Street. So Why Is Koreatown In Los Angeles Still Standing?

Answer the question racist whites. Why is Koreatown still standing? You didn’t have a problem burning down everything Black people built for themselves, so why stop there? Is Korean barbecue and black bean noodle that goddamn good?

Homeless people in Los Angeles: LA builds pricey Koreatown apartments

In Los Angeles, the tents are spread out on sidewalks across the city, the homeless emboldened by a court ruling that allows them to live outside if no shelter space is available. Making matters worse, many live in filthy, third-world conditions without basic necessities like toilets and sinks. It makes them and those who venture near susceptible to disease.

A few homeless and low-income senior citizens will be luckier than most next year.

They will receive keys to one of 72 new apartments,complete with a fitness center, in the heart of trendy Koreatown, built at a projected cost of $690,692 for each unit, according to the city controller’s office. Two additional projects in the pre-approval phase are expected to top $700,000 per unit in total costs.

Awwww…isn’t that nice? A few homeless people and seniors are going to find themselves the lucky winners of pricey housing right smack dab in Koreatown, which isn’t over in North or South Korea, but is smack dab in the middle of Los Angeles because the whites just love them some Korean barbecue. It must be that the whites got tired of eating the food cooked by Africa’s stolen people; you know, the slaves. So now that the slaves’ offspring are behind bars, invite the Koreans to come over here and open their barbecue joints where they must sell a heck of an extreme amount of butchered pigs because by golly they got the pricey digs coming up to show for those restaurants they’ve managed to open all across this shithole.

Meanwhile, the rest of the homeless on Skidrow get to sit back in their tents and figure out how to cure their typhus and hookworm because the whites have that Korean barbecue to look forward to in Koreatown.

And yet when Black people were trying to be self-sufficient; self-reliable, for their efforts, racists put a stop to that.

The Rosewood Massacre

he Rosewood Massacre was an attack on the predominantly African-American town of Rosewood, Florida, in 1923 by large groups of whites. The town was entirely destroyed by the end of the violence, and the residents were driven out permanently.

By the 1920s, Rosewood’s population of about 200 was entirely made up of black citizens, except for one white family that ran the general store there.

It was in 1982 when Gary Moore, a journalist for the St. Petersburg Times, resurrected the history of Rosewood through a series of articles that gained national attention.

The living survivors of the massacre, at that point all in their 80s and 90s, came forward, led by Rosewood descendant Arnett Doctor, and demanded restitution from Florida.

The action lead to the passing of a bill awarding them $2 million and created an educational fund for descendants. The bill also called for an investigation into the matter to clarify the events, which Moore took part in.

The Black people who were left alive after the Rosewood Massacre, received $2 million dollars for the horror they were made to suffer at the hands of rabid, racist whites, who many were members of the Ku Klux Klan. Four apartments that are going to be built in Koreatown costs more than the two million those innocent Black people received. How fucking fair and just is that shit? But yet Koreans can come over here and open up businesses, amass a fortune and get to live in pricey digs in their own goddamn town, Koreatown, when American descendants of slaves were trying to do the very same goddamn thing and many were killed for their efforts and the others had to flee their own town thanks to racist ass whites!

And not to be outdone, these racist ass whites even went further and burned down The Black Wall Street.

Black Wall Street and the Destruction of an Institution

Black Wall Street was in Greenwood, Oklahoma, a suburb of Tulsa, was the type of community that African Americans are still, today, attempting to reclaim and rebuild. Black Wall Street was modern, majestic, sophisticated and unapologetically Black. Tragically, it was also the site of one of the bloodiest and most horrendous race riots (and acts of terrorism) that the United States has ever experienced.

Today marks ninety-two years since as many as 300 African Americans lost their lives and more than 9,000 were left homeless when the small town was attacked, looted and literally burned to the ground beginning in 1921. It’s impossible, however, to realize what was lost in Greenwood, which was affectionately known as “Black Wall Street.”

Three hundred American descendants of slaves were viciously murdered and more than nine thousand were left homeless thanks to the rabid racism of whites who are hell bent on the annihilation of American descendants of slaves. Every group whether they are Korean, Chinese or from India or Pakistan or Timbukfuckingtu can come over here and climb over us and that is fine. They can have their communities, their businesses and their towns, but a people who are descended from those who were stolen and dragged over here? Not so goddamn fast! The whites are going to burn our shit to the ground and us with it. They want to make sure that we never thrive. The whites want us homeless, sick, hungry, incarcerated or dead! And that is exactly what is happening. This is why the fuck whites ain’t somewhere burning down Koreatown or Pakistanville or Hinduvillage, Hmongburg, China City or Russia Hamlet. Because make no mistake, though the Democrats scream and rail against the Russians, Russians are all over this hole like flies on shit. Take your ass to Minnesota, the Russian mafia is there, and in spades. The Democrats don’t hate Russians. Go see how the Russians over here live and then come tell me about how the Democrats hate the Russians. You don’t see no Russians in homeless encampments. And tell me, how many Asians do you see in homeless encampments, Hindu cow worshipers? Exactly! There are only millions of homeless American descendants of slaves and poor whites who have been deemed, poor white trash who are sitting all up in homeless encampments. And you seriously believe that this shit is by accident? Fucking get your head from out your ass because you want to be clueless about what the fuck is going down and why! The racists in this shithole know exactly what they are about and the foolishness down at the southern border is just that; foolishness because no one with two brain cells connecting and working should believe for one goddamn second that Donald “hired illegals to work for him” Trump is somewhere trying to rid this country of an illegal workforce. The fucking Hindu cow worshipers are over here on expired H1B visas and the whites ain’t giving a shit about that. The same with the Pakistanis and other ‘immigrants’. Even the goddamn Russians aren’t even looked at cross-eyed and yet what is the focus on? Some supposed ‘Russian meddling in the last election’? If you buy that load of horse shit, you’ve most definitely had a lobotomy. Take your dumb ass all across this worthless racist shithole and see that every community of ‘immigrants’ is thriving while those of us whose ancestors were dragged over here are living foul as hell! This is ALL done by design. Nothing racist whites do is by accident; nothing!

Our ancestors are screaming from the grave over what continues to go down. How the hell can they rest in peace when we can’t even see that we need to get up off the bling shit, the fake hair, fake nails, fake Asian food, fake ass killer liquor and some more shit that the whites have sent into our neighborhoods by way of the Asians, Hindus, Pakistanis and Russians to continue to fuck us up! Those worthless shits are helping whitey pasty ass to fuck us up and we are buying that shit up in droves and what the fuck do we have to show for it? Some wigs, weaves, fake nails, empty Asian take-out containers and empty Russian vodka bottles. How is that helping us become self-sufficient? It’s not and we can’t see that because when we are not busy handing our money over to these ‘immigrants’ who are welcomed over here by racist whites, we are heading inside movie theaters to be entertained by the whites and buying up the products made by white-owned companies. Nestle and Hershey ain’t our friends. Orville Redenbacher popcorn ain’t some shit we should be chowing down on. Pepsi and Coke ain’t some shit we should be drinking. That shit’s killing us as is the fucked up food in Kroger, Sam’s Club, Walmart, Costco and Safeway. Even the Africans over here have opened up their own halal meat markets. You don’t even see those motherfuckers up in those fucked up stores and yet, there we are buying hepatitis A from Kroger and Costco. We are buying salmonella and e coli from those places as well. And don’t even get me started on fast food joints. Seriously? Do I even need to go there? What is Chipotle known for other than burritos? E coli, that’s what! I can’t make you wake the fuck up. The only thing I can do is put it out there and hope that some of you at least, will pick it up! Other than that, I despair OF us! I’m fucking done!

The Crazy Shit That’s Happening!

For those of you who have posted blogs and I have not gotten a chance to view, it is because I have been on yet another trip to Baltimore and the crazy shit that’s happening just won’t quit!

My cousin and I go to Baltimore for our primary care because we live in racist ass Lynchburg. We are about to bounce in September and believe me, we cannot wait. However, with that being said, the crazy shit that I have seen in Baltimore, MD THIS trip is just whacked! We had to go to the airport to get our tickets and the lightrail was out-of-service thanks to a massive sinkhole on Pratt Street in downtown Baltimore that put the lightrail out-of-service. Thankfully, we found a way around that small problem.

At my cousin’s doctor appointment, there were people sitting in the waiting area who were homeless and who had been homeless for quite some time. The problem is that there was a social worker at the clinic as well as a ‘Housing Co-ordinator’ and both were completely useless and were paid to basically do nothing. One lady was asking the ‘housing co-ordinator’ to help her find housing and what she got for her efforts was a listing straight from ‘Apartmentsdotcom’ and told to “find your own housing because there is no affordable housing in Baltimore, MD.” What the fuck? The social worker was who had referred her to this so-called ‘housing co-ordinator’.

As we were leaving my cousin’s doctor’s appointment, we stumbled upon a man who was sleeping on the sidewalk in 105°F. I have no idea if the man was alive or dead, but we were too afraid to touch him for fear that he was ice cold.

After passing this man, we damn near stumbled upon another scene just like this one, only there were several people standing around a man who was lying on the sidewalk and it appears that he had fallen and a lady knelt beside him and tried to feel for a pulse only to look up and state that she couldn’t find one. We left as she was calling for paramedics. This scene plays out all across America, every single day and it is getting worse.

As politicians fight amongst themselves over Mueller investigations and Russian interference in elections, the people of this country are fucked up and are dropping dead on these mean streets and no one gives a goddamn! As solar panels are put up to provide lighting for specific areas, people are left to make it or not on their own.

What is the point to all of this when people need the money that was put to use to provide solar lighting in some areas? Why is there never any money to help those in need? How can people lying on the sidewalk be so overlooked while light fixtures are deemed more important than people dying on the sidewalk due to the heat or health conditions or both? What the hell is wrong with us? Why do we not see ourselves when we look at homeless people because with the shit that is going down, how can we not see that where they are, we too shall go? Not one of us will be immune to the crazy shit that’s happening. Not one! Don’t believe for a second that just because you believe that your job is secure in that no robot can do what you do, you are completely in denial. Robots are performing surgery. Robots are building vehicles. Robots are performing tasks that humans do including acting as sex dolls. Before too long, there is not going to be any job left that a robot cannot do and so more and more of us are going to join the ranks of the homeless; dying because we are homeless.

You sit in your comfortable home now, but the day is coming when your comfortable home will be exchanged for a sidewalk, an underpass, a tent or a box. Someone maybe checking for a pulse on your body and calling for the paramedics that will also be robots to come haul you to the morgue. The time to do something about this is now! And this is why I have collaborated with a company and designed a logo to help end homelessness, one person at a time. Someone has got to do something and I can no longer sit somewhere and wait for the next person to get it done.

I will soon have up and running a site whereas I will be selling t-shirts and mugs, caps and other items for the express purpose of starting an organization to end homelessness or at the very least, put a dent in the overwhelming numbers of homeless persons. No one is really doing a damn thing about homelessness besides posting videos after having interviewed the homeless. What the hell does that do? Not a goddamn thing. I am hell bent on trying to be a solution as opposed to continue as a frustrated onlooker. Below is a picture of just some of the merchandise that I will be selling with the proceeds going exclusively to helping people step from homelessness into housing.

Also available in the apparel line will be hoodies, tank tops, short sleeve t-shirts, long sleeve t-shirts, etc.

The writing is on the wall. There is no affordable housing. Rents are skyrocketing. Home ownership is out-of-reach for millions. The only way that we can attempt to help one another is through community support which means helping when we can; finding ways to counter the escalating shit that’s been coming down the pike for some time now. We can no longer look the other way because the crazy shit that is happening is going to affect us all. Apathy and complacency can no longer be the rule of the day. People, wake the fuck up! No politician is going to do a damn thing about a damn thing. All they are doing is trying to distract us from the real shit that is going down. Donald Trump’s tax return release is not going to house a homeless person. Russia’s supposed meddling in the election is not going to house a homeless person. That stupid Mueller hearing is not going to house a homeless person. That shit is just smoke and mirrors; the exact same shit that IS Wall Street. Wall Street’s shenanigans are just that and they have no place in our everyday life. Those of us who are on the mean streets of this shithole have nothing to lose or gain from Wall Street. We are not high rollers. We are not playing with fake ass money that is produced by a magician’s sleight of hand. I am seeing real people in real need; something that the politicians never care to see or concern themselves with. They don’t care that millions of people are housing insecure, are food insecure, are without health care because if they did, do you really think that the only worthless shit that they are concentrating on is Trump’s tax returns, Russia’s supposed meddling and other frivolous shit that matters not to the man, woman or child who is lying on the sidewalk breathing their last? What I just witnessed, a man without a pulse lying on the sidewalk in broad daylight with temperatures soaring to 100F should not have happened in one of the supposed richest countries on the planet, but I witnessed it.

I can no longer pen poems and consider that that is all that I should do. Who is that helping? I cannot just continue to witness the horror of people dying on the sidewalk because they cannot get in out of the heat; the heat that is only going to get worse thanks to man-made global warming. You do what you want or not, that depends on you. But I have got to at the very least….try! And that is exactly what I intend to do!

While politicians drone on about impeachment,
I lie here able to sleep on hot ass pavement.
While another dog and pony show commences,
and Mueller testifies about Trump’s offenses,
just down the street from me, a homeless man lay dying.
but over his death, I don’t have any tears for crying.
For I am probably next and there will be none to weep,
since the other homeless souls all around me are asleep.

What The Hell Is Going On??!!!

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

First up, we have this!

Lunds & Byerlys To Close All Pharmacies Next Week

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

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

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

Nor do I get this!

Famous Dave’s in Uptown closes

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

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

And we come to this!

Minnesota-Based Regional Trucking Company Abruptly Closes

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

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

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

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

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

And the bad news continues.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Call Me “Crazy!” But I returned To Baltimore, MD

Baltimore Inner Harbor

 

I know! I know! I said that I would never, ever go back to Baltimore, MD, not after the horrific shit that happened to me and to my cousin, but the truth of the matter is that no matter how horrible things are for you in one place, they can be even more horrible in another place. And where my cousin and I live right now is even worse than Baltimore’s shit. In fact, the reason why we returned to Baltimore, MD is because of where we live now. He was thrown out of the only medical “game” in town and by that I mean that here in Lynchburg, VA, the only medical “game” in town is called, “Centra Health.” They are over every single medical office here in this city. They have the monopoly on the fucked up shit they call ‘health care’. Never come to this city if you want decent health care because these idiots will kill you and that is a fact! If someone actually did research on this shithole burg, they would find plenty of evidence to back up what I have just written about this fucked up mess they call ‘health care’ here in Lynchburg, VA. Hell! Even spellcheck is trying to check my spelling of this damn burg because, apparently, “Lynchburg” is not something that is ‘kosher’, since why would you want to name a city “Lynchburg” in the first goddamn place if you didn’t want to be perceived as racist as hell??!!! Of course, the word from the white parasites that run this shithole burg is that the first white parasite to set up shop here was named John Lynch and so “Lynchburg” was born. HA! Right! It’s because of all the lynching that went on is why this hole is called “Lynchburg.” They even had a lynching tree and the whites here cried all over the goddamn place when the lynching tree was struck by lightning and that was it for that fucked up tree. But as usual, I digress.

Since my cousin was thrown out of the medical system here, we had to go elsewhere for him to receive his medical care and he wanted to go back to his doctor in Baltimore, MD and so we went. In fact, this is our second trip to Baltimore. We went last month because he had a doctor’s appointment and we made another appointment for Monday of this week, but his doctor called us and told us that it would not be necessary for him to be seen so soon since he was doing well. She told us that we were still welcome to come and see her and just have a great time with her talking about our trip and our plans for seeing the sights in Baltimore. Now remember, his doctors here in Lynchburg lied about their reasons for denying him access to their facilities by stating that he “exhibited unsafe behavior towards staff,” and yet his doctor from when we previously lived in Baltimore, MD, not only welcomed him back with open arms, but was quite willing to have us just visit with her. So, who is the goddamn problem? Newsfuckingflash! It’s not my cousin or me! It’s this racist shit here in Lynchburg! And we can’t get out of here fast enough to suit us, goddamn it!

Here I shall post some pictures that we took on this latest Baltimore trip and I fell in love with Baltimore all over again!

Baltimore Inner Harbor by night is just lovely!

And this one!

Beautiful! Just beautiful!

 

And this one as well!

In the mid 90s when I lived here, I was always at the Harbor.

 

I also took a few day time pictures.

The Baltimore Inner Harbor by day

 

And another one by day!

Pretty tree by the harbor in bloom!

 

 

We stayed at the Days Inn Inner Harbor Hotel. It was okay, but I didn’t like the setup whereas the sink was outside of the bath/toilet area.

The tub/toilet is located behind the wall where the picture is and across from that is the sink. Not a great setup at all.

 

At least it had a fridge/microwave. But that was all it had to say for itself. I had some Wyndham rewards points to get rid of since I used to stay at the La Quinta in Bloomington, MN lots of times and now La Quinta is owned by Wyndham and my points switched over to Wyndham. I won’t be staying here anymore.

The microwave was fucked up because the tray didn’t fit and was always bumping up against the microwave.

 

And the decor of the room was not too bright.

I would not recommend Days Inn Inner Harbor Hotel.

 

The ‘motor’ or whatever in the AC/heating unit was carrying on something awful. The only reason we did not request a different room is because the unit that was in the hallway was carrying on equally as bad.

No frills here!

 

Or here!

I finally get around to showing you a picture of where the sink is, outside the bathroom proper. Seriously??!!

But I guess I should not complain!

I would much rather have been here than where the person in this next picture is.

We ‘humans’ find much to complain about and yet, when I went outside and down to the Inner Harbor, I encountered….well…see for yourself.

A homeless man in a wheelchair down by the Inner Harbor

This is exactly what I mean when I say that we ‘humans’ are some real shits when we can sit somewhere and whine because our hotel room is not up to our standards and then turn right around and pass by a homeless person, whose situation is much, much, much worse! And I am not leaving me out in this “we are some real shits” scenario because I pissed and moaned and threatened to go to the Front Desk and complain, but my cousin talked me down from the fucking ceiling. And it did not help that we gave the homeless man some money. He doesn’t need that. What he needs is some mental health care case management, a social worker, some health care and a goddamn roof over his head and I am pretty sure that if I had given up my hotel digs to him, he’d not have complained one goddamn bit! But I am a hypocrite for calling others out when I am just as guilty of being hoity-toity and think my shit don’t stink. It doesn’t because I eat healthy, but that’s beside the point! I am a shameless hypocritical shit for carrying on so about a hotel room when a man is sitting somewhere sick and some mo shit and is uncomplaining while ‘humans’ walk right on by him complaining about their phone needing charging or their fucked up hotel room or about they need their nails done. We are some real sick and twisted shits for not caring about people while we put our stupid asses above those who are the real and true humans who are suffering, mightily. Like this next woman!

A poor homeless woman at the Baltimore Inner Harbor at night.

Yeah! I’m caterwauling over the fact of my hotel sink being outside of the bathroom proper while this woman doesn’t even have a bathroom at all! Again, we gave her money, but what she needs is for people to care enough about others and do something about the seriousness of homelessness over concerning themselves over what’s not up to par for them like a microwave tray banging up against the inside of the microwave or about an AC/heating unit making some fucking noise. And again! I am including myself in this and to show you just how fucking hypocritical I am. I was just relaxing in a bar before heading to the Inner Harbor in order to witness that poor homeless woman slowly making her way around the harbor.

The money we spent on White Zinfandel wine and draft beer could have gone to a homeless person. And I should know better.

And so while we wined and dined, people were out in the streets, with no place to go and no one to give a thought for their well being. But there we sat, just a’swilling drinks while I complained about my room.

My third one! And remember, I gave up drinking til today. And you’ve probably been wondering why my previous pictures were tilted. This would be why.

 

I have said this before and I say it again, “I can’t make you care!” Hell! I am guilty of having a ‘no care’ attitude. But it needs to stop! I need to put the needs of others who are in worse shape than I am in, first. I need to stop with this ‘me first’ attitude. I need to step up to the plate because I am faltering. Yes, we live in a cold, cruel world of people who seem to be immune to the suffering we see all around us on a daily basis and that is a bad way to be. This is why folks shit is flooded out! This is why horrific shit is going down, daily! This is why folks……because we are treating each other like shit and that is going to come home to roost all on our ass! If we continue down this road, there is going to be no hope for us. Bet on that!

On The Streets…..Of America

I just watched a video on homelessness and I was quite struck by a brilliant observation from someone who commented on the video.

“People oppose welfare but they defend monopolism with every tooth and nail. They’re both forms of wealth redistribution. The only reason anyone has a good paying job is because they’re employed by companies who are somehow protected from competition, either by IP, geography, zoning laws, or licensing and permit schemes. The same laws prohibit individuals from employing themselves, resulting in widespread poverty. Anyone who has a good paying job has not a square inch of room to complain about welfare.

Nobody can be expected to get a job without a home. If all the money we spend on building new prisons were used instead to build public apartment high rises, crime would drop, minimum wages would go further, and modest rent rates could be a source of public revenue rather than a constant tax liability. The government collects more than enough taxes to guarantee that every citizen has a safe, clean place to sleep and bathe. I don’t care if lazy people chose instead to sit around their apartments all day doing nothing. It’s cheaper than prisons and more civilized than abandoning the poor to loitering the streets, prostitution, drugs, shoplifting, mugging, breaking into homes, sleep in filth, spread bugs and germs and get sick all the time.” – by Ox1A3C3E7

That comment is spot on! We have no problem with the fact that monopolies are encouraged when mere decades ago, there were laws in place to prevent monopolies, but that is a thing of the past. And now because of it, corporate greed runs amok, unchecked and add into the mixture the fact of huge tax breaks for these mega-corporations that have no competition and the people are held hostage by them. How many cable companies are in existence today? Telephone companies? Microsoft software is a monopoly since our computer systems use Microsoft software damn near exclusively. All of this leads to boundless profits for corporations while wages for those who work at the bottom rungs of those corporations earn wages that would not keep a hamster in feed, thus leading to hunger, homelessness and hopelessness. And what does the government do? It continues to aid and abet these corporations into becoming monopolies by refusing to break them up and also by encouraging the growth of monopolies with our tax dollars. Amazon is yet another ‘prime’ example even as Donald Trump likes to pretend to take umbrage with Jeff Bezos. My guess would be that he is just jealous of the fact that Bezos has far surpassed him in business acumen which Trump never had to begin with.

Meanwhile, video after video can be viewed that showcases the plight of homelessness, year after year and yet what is done to rein this in? Nothing. Just talk and more talk and hand wringing. Anyone can follow a homeless person around with a camera for a few days to get an idea of what life is like for the homeless, but when all is said and done, what good does that do? It only elicits a few comments and likes for those comments and suggestions and ideas and then on to the next. The sad fact is that ALL of us are headed where the homeless are. People are not paying attention to the fact that those who are sitting on Skid Row in Anytown, USA are going to have plenty of company. The plight of those who are already homeless will soon be felt by us all because no one is seriously trying to do anything about what millions of people are dealing with every single day. It matters not if I write poetry about the homeless or if people post videos about the homeless because if there is no real feasible solutions to throw at the problems that cause homelessness, the situation is going to continue to worsen.

Those of us who are comfortably looking at the situation from afar are not even thinking that we shall soon be in their shoes. Some of us are content to think that our jobs will always be there as will our pensions. I wouldn’t count on that because pension funds are being raided as I type this and Social Security does not pay enough to live on. And though there are suggestions to move oversees or to Latin American countries where your Social Security will go further, that is just not feasible for everyone. And with many of those countries that are named as great retirement havens in the news for having mass protests over a lack of food, medicine and housing, who in their right mind would head to those areas flaunting their ‘privilege’ in the face of mobs of people, gaunt and sunken-eyed looking to feed their hungry children? Take your ass on over to Venezuela and see how you fare. Try Honduras. Guatemala. Mexico City, Mexico. Either get caught up in drug warfare or get caught up in a United States staged coup against a Latin American country. But either way, your situation is not going to be roses and all things bright and beautiful forever. And even in countries like Ecuador and Costa Rica, the natives are going to get mighty sick and tired of foreigners coming in buying up everything for pennies on the dollar and paying them pennies to wait on them hand and foot.

And as usual, it is mostly whites who can take themselves off when the shit hits the fan for them while those who already have the shit hitting the fan, must stay and deal with a country that is rapidly descending into Third world status. Some of you may think it funny that hookworms are dripping out of the assholes of homeless people, nationwide, but it’s not. Some of you may think it funny that typhus is making the rounds of the homeless population in multiple cities, but it’s not. Add to those issues are the other physical and mental illnesses that most homeless people are dealing with and what that means is that hospitals are overwhelmed with emergency room visits by people whom they cannot collect payment from.

People try and act as though they cannot understand that mass homelessness costs more than housing and necessary services to stabilize the homeless once they have been housed and with communicable diseases on the rise, that is no small problem especially seeing as how there are diseases that no antibiotic can cure. When serious plagues start resurfacing and plagues never before seen start occurring, what is going to be the exit strategy for that? There is none. We’d ALL better wake up to the fact that homelessness is not just impacting those who are sitting out on the sidewalks or who are sitting inside tents or living in their vehicles, it is going to impact us all in some way or another. Something for you to think about while shopping for chicken wings and hoagie ‘meat’ for your Superbowl parties. What we ‘give’ importance to is just too ludicrous for words given the seriousness of the situation as it pertains to the rapid descent of this shithole called America. People are homeless, sick and hungry while those of us who have not yet joined them are anxiously awaiting the Superbowl since bets have been placed and there are parties to be hosted. It is no wonder we are sinking like a stone since we will get behind anything that will distract us from the truth and from seeing those who have already gone where we too shall go. And you can take that to the bank!

“Happy” Indian Extermination Day!

 

Cut the bullshit! Call a spade, a spade. Quit dancing around the truth! The truth is that ignorant, stupid, greedy Americans celebrate a day that pays homage to some bullshit about how ‘murdering pilgrims colonizers and Indians celebrated their great relationship with a feast because the Indians were just so thankful that a group of pasty-asses crawled ashore, knowing fuck all about this land and yet, somehow, managed to overcome scurvy and syphilis, small pox and some more shit to feed the original inhabitants after having chased turkeys all over the goddamn place, caught some and then I guess, cooked them over an open fire and the contributions of the grateful Indians was to hand over some ‘Indian corn’ whereupon, everyone sat down and partook of an excellent meal. After the meal, the Indians were slaughtered as well and the confiscation of their land began. Immigration laws? What immigration laws? Who the hell needed a damn passport? “We is WHITE and so we is RIGHT to kill, steal and oh hell, we need some slaves! There ain’t enough Indians left and they’re all hiding in the hills, the few that’s not on reservations. Let’s crawl back into those ships and head back out. Goddamn! There they are! Look lively there! Haul ’em aboard, Black-assed motherfuckers, that they are! Get over here! Prime specimens. Great for breeding purposes and for fucking. We done hit the mother load! Hot damn!”

Ain’t that about it? Have I fucking lied? Hell no! Board that plane to see Aunt Jane and the rest of the “Klan” and enjoy a big ole turkey meal with all the trimmings. I hear tell that the turkeys this year are ‘hit and miss’, meaning that there’s some salmonella issues and Jennie-O Turkey just recalled 91,000 pounds of raw turkey meat thanks to salmonella. Apparently, tryptophan and salmonella just shouldn’t mix. Neither should pilgrim colonizers and Indians when one intends to exterminate the other, but that’s what happened and so dig in! I hope you greedy, gluttonous motherfuckers moan and whine and shit your pants on your way out the door for the ‘early bird’ specials thanks to salmonella induced diarrhea . It would serve you ignorant motherfuckers right!

Of course everyone has just simply forgotten or more likely, chose to ignore the fact that the oh so grateful Indians on those lovely Hallmark cards alongside those murdering pasty-faced colonizers never existed because the bullshit that you believe is an outrageous lie, but you love lies because then you don’t have to face the truth because it’s ugly and you don’t like ugly. That is why you prefer that the truth be ‘whitewashed’, sugarcoated and some mo shit! Yeah! Let’s put it out there that everyone got along just like we do today, is that it? Who the fuck is getting along? Oh, we are going to see some pictures of some long lines at airports because, once again, we’ve got to live the lie. We’ve got to pretend that everything is hunky dory and that we are just so grateful to spend time with family we secretly despise and detest, but since we are told that on Thanksgiving, we are to ‘pretend’ if need be that we are thankful for family and friends and big, groaning tables full of ‘cardiac arrest’, then we will, such dutiful, obedient sheep, are we. And the tree is already decorated over in the corner just waiting on those expensive presents, all beautifully gift wrapped to be placed underneath it and you’ve already got your shopping strategy mapped out. Plane lands, met by drunk Uncle Jack, who farts and belches his way back to Aunt Jane’s house where there’s a bunch of folks knocking back alcohol and you swear you see, out of the corner of your eye, Uncle Jack’s wife giving Uncle David, a ‘come hither’ look. Then it’s kiss and hug everyone time and insincere utterances of “how nice to see you and oh, don’t you look lovely in that sweater” which you secretly think is uglier than Aunt Jane’s face. Tomorrow, it’s take half an hour to ‘give thanks’ and out the door for the “Door buster sales” you go! And you will kick, beat and scratch your way all over the store for yet ANOTHER TV, smartphone and anything else to distract you from the truth!

Oh, we are so good at pretense and we are even better at doing what we have been programmed to do without thought. You are told to celebrate “Thanksgiving” on the fourth Thursday of every November and you do it. You are told what to eat on that day and you eat it even if it means a salmonella diagnosis with you shitting and puking at the same time. You are told to shop the next day or in some cases, just as soon as you clean your plate and you do it. You don’t see anything wrong with this picture, do you? Of course you don’t because thinking for yourself is a novelty; patently unheard of and you wouldn’t dare stand alone, conformist that you are. Buck the trend? Who you? NEVER! Those who write the script for you to follow can count on you and millions of others to do exactly as you are told, without question and you do it. And those who write the script have made damn sure that they keep the truth in check. Who needs to be continuously fed the truth in that “Thanksgiving” is a fucking lie, a travesty and a tragedy. I know one thing, your ass would never drive through an Indian reservation and see the devastation, hopelessness, despair and abject poverty. Hell! That’s not on the way to your shopping spree!

You think ALL Indians are living the good life thanks to casino gambling and so what the fuck do you have to consider their plight for? Let me clear one thing up right now. The majority of Indians get no revenue from gaming; only a select few. The majority spend their short lives living in poverty and many are homeless since reservation life is beyond intolerable. They are still just as addicted to ‘firewater’ today as they were when the first pasty-faced shits gave them that, supposedly, in exchange for their land. And I am so naïve as to believe that the land your house sits own, you bartered for it with the bank. You gave the bank manager cases of liquor and he gave you the deed to your house. I mean, what was good enough for the Indians should be good enough for that pasty-faced bank manager, shouldn’t it? Fuck no! Yeah! Take a case of liquor to a bank and state that you intend to exchange that for a nice, prime piece of land on which to build you a home. That’s going to go over real well.

So no, it’s not “Happy Thanksgiving!” It’s “Happy” Indian Extermination Day! That’s the goddamn truth because Indians are still dying because they are homeless to this very day. Go ahead and wish Pamela Rivera, a “Happy Thanksgiving!” She can’t hear you because she just died in a homeless tent city in Minnesota while waiting on some affordable housing to open up. But I am sure that when she was alive, she was eternally grateful when “Thanksgiving” came around each and every November.

Fox 9 Investigators: A death in tent city

“My name is Pamela Rivera and we are at a homeless camp,” she can be heard saying in a video that was posted on Facebook. “We just call it tent town for natives.”

Puke your fucking guts out after eating a goddamn heaping helping of salmonella. Shit until your asshole burns and crap yourself ALL the fucking way to Walmart, why doncha!

The plight of her people was consigned to the garbage while we celebrate lies, lies and damned lies! But remember this, what comes around, goes around. There are many who are still homeless down in Florida thanks to Hurricane Michael and the same is going down in California thanks to those wildfires that are still raging. I hear tell that many will be spending “Thanksgiving” in a tent city in a Walmart parking lot. Oh wait! They are being moved to some fairgrounds due to inclement weather. I remember seeing pictures of tents set up in parking lots of shopping centers awaiting store openings. Well, this year, some of those tents will contain those whose homes have burned to the ground. Karma is a bitch, ain’t it?

Dude in the above picture is just beyond perplexed at his situation here in America.

“I never thought I’d live in a tent city,” said Mr. Winter, 39, a Marine Corps veteran and software developer who had recently emerged from a stretch of homelessness, only to lose everything he owned in the devastating Camp Fire, the deadliest California wildfire on record. “I mean, this is America; we’re not supposed to live this way. But here we are, man, the new normal.”

Translation:

“I am WHITE! What the fuck am I doing living out of a tent in a field at Walmart? I am a WHITE Marine Corps vet, who you should be bending over backwards thanking for my service killing people that I didn’t even know….AND…..I am a software developer and even though I was homeless before becoming homeless AGAIN, this shit ain’t supposed to happen to ME! I’m WHITE! What about that can you people not understand? I am WHITE, goddamn it! And fucking hey! I voted for Donald “Make America Great Again!” Trump but this bullshit ain’t fucking great! Get me some help and get me some help now! Fuck this shit man, I AM WHITE!”

Jarrad Winter, welcome to Pamela Rivera’s world! Oh, and “Happy Indian Extermination Day!” Ain’t karma, a bitch??!!!

 

 

 

Where Is FEMA? Where Is The Red Cross? Where Is Donald Trump? Victims Of Hurricane Michael Which Includes A Family With A New Born Baby Were Sleeping In A Walmart Parking Lot

 

The Trump Administration has claimed, “Job well done!” in seeing that victims of Hurricane Michael have had their basic needs met. Trump and porn star, Melania, toured areas devastated by Hurricane Michael and concluded that the government disaster relief agencies are ALL on top of their game. Well, this couple begs to differ.

Child of the storm: Homeless baby, family shelter at Walmart

PANAMA CITY, Fla. — Their home full of soggy furniture and mosquitoes, Wilmer Capps was desperate to find shelter for his wife and their son Luke, born just three days after Hurricane Michael ravaged the Florida Panhandle.

So Capps, his wife Lorrainda Smith and little Luke settled in for the longest of nights in the best spot they could find: The parking lot of a Walmart store shut down by the storm.

On a starry night, mother sat in the bed of the family’s pickup truck; her child sat in a car seat beside her. Dad sat in the dark and pondered how it could be that his son’s first night out of a hospital could be spent outside a big-box retailer because of a lack of help.

This is reminiscent of another child who was a newborn and there was no place for mother and child and this is why we celebrate Christmas. Do you remember THAT story? Well, here we have a mother and three-day old baby boy put out of the hospital with no place to lay their heads since the federal government was useless and so a ‘good Samaritan’ came to their rescue when the federal government was supposed to be doing its job to assist people in finding suitable living accommodations after they go through a natural disaster. The same can be said of the Red Cross. The Red Cross has no problem spending our donations in advertising that it is a charitable organization charged with the task of coming to the assistance of people who are in the midst of trying to survive a natural disaster or fire or some such calamity and yet, where were they when this couple needed them? I would certainly inquire as to what is going on with your donations, if I were you because it would seem to be that they are not going for the purpose of what they were intended.

The article goes on to mention the fact that this couple had been given a ride to a hospital by the police but while at the hospital, it was decided by doctors there to not induce labor. The pregnant woman could not find a ride back from where the police had first picked her up and so had to walk seven miles back to her point of origin while almost ready to give birth. The next day, her labor pains began in earnest and she was driven to yet another hospital in Dothan, Alabama where she gave birth to a male child and then was promptly released from the hospital back into homelessness with a newborn baby. Ain’t America great? Because due to the fact that the couple could find nowhere to stay in or around Dothan, Alabama, they drove back to Florida where they were still unable to stay in their storm-damaged home and so the only place they could think of to park and not be harassed was at a Walmart that was closed due to storm damage. They settled in the parking lot, whereupon police officers showed up after an AP reporter descended on them to write a story about their plight. The police escorted them to a center whereas the newborn was checked out, however, the center did not have any availability for them and FEMA advised them to stay at a shelter that was riddled with bugs, both bed and of other varieties and the couple declined. I would have done likewise. And so the couple drove back to the Walmart to spend the night since they were almost out of money and gas, but thanks to the kindness of strangers, a security guard paid for them to stay at a hotel near Panama City Beach and the father of the newborn is adamant that he is going to pay back the donations once he gets back on his feet because he is just overwhelmed with joy that someone would came to the assistance of his wife and newborn in their darkest hour.

Sadly, these are the very people who would vote for the likes of Donald Trump who could care less what his supporters are going through since there are other stories similar to this one thanks to Hurricane Michael having caused so much destruction, misery, homelessness and death. Trump and the republicans would rather institute tax breaks for the very rich and throw more money at an already bloated military budget than fund necessary programs to keep people from having to depend on the ‘kindness of strangers’ in times of natural disasters and other calamities since you can plainly see that the Red Cross is next to useless as is FEMA. No woman who has just recently given birth should have to stay at a homeless shelter with her newborn after their home has been rendered, uninhabitable by a natural disaster because those shelters are breeding grounds for bugs, communicable diseases and germs. Breathing the air in those places is enough to send one to the hospital and a newborn and a woman who has just given birth should be the very last to ever hear that a homeless shelter is the place for them.

What is wrong with us when this is acceptable in the richest country on the planet? How can we sit back and read such as this and not be moved by it? Are we that selfish and self-centered that we have no problem with this being the status quo? Quite obviously we are especially seeing as how there are millions of people who have no home and though it is not due to a natural disaster, many of them are homeless through no fault of their own. Many have mental illness, some are homeless veterans, many are children who are most definitely NOT to blame for their situation of homelessness. And many of those who are homeless have lost jobs to overseas sweatshops since manufacturing jobs are all but gone and with Trump upping the ante on this trade war with China, who knows what’s coming down the pike except that it will not be good. We are to the point where there are plagues coming back that were thought to have been eradicated. How is it that the richest country on the planet has a group that consists of millions who are homeless, sick with typhus, hookworm and other horrific diseases and illness and we just look the other way?

I have said numerous times all over this blog, that if the Christian’s “Jesus” were to come back, he’d damn well better come back driving a Lamborghini Veneno Roadster and adorned in a Dormeuil Vanquish II suit and sporting a pair of Testoni Norvegese shoes because if he comes back looking broke, wearing a plain cotton robe with a rope tied around his waist and sporting sandals, he’ll be locked up for being a vagrant and made to earn a dollar a month making license plates and what’s more you ALL know this!

Though this couple depicted in this post are not Joseph, the Virgin Mary and Jesus, their story is reminiscent of why we supposedly celebrate Christmas and so what has changed? There is still no room at the inn. The government officials are still just as cold and callus as they were in the story of the birth of Jesus and I guess we still need gifts from ‘Wise men’ which in this case would be the security guard who donated a hotel room for the couple and their newborn baby. And so the next time you decide to write out a check for charity, I’d think twice about it if I were you since only ten cents of every dollar that you donate to the Red Cross actually goes to help those in need. Ask yourself where the majority of every dollar goes. Take a look at the CEO’s salary and those who make up upper management, you’ll find where the money goes. And FEMA is just as useless now as it was when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. You all know what happened at that time. Should what went down then, still go down today? The answer should be a resounding, “NO!” But it isn’t. Think about it. The next disaster to strike could be where you live. Who or what are you going to depend on and will a kind security guard be there to help you? You’d best hope so because the Red Cross and FEMA are next to useless as is Donald Trump alongside his porn star wife.

How you can help protect Medicare and Social Security — The Most Revolutionary Act

Originally posted on #Monetary Sovereignty – Mitchell: . It takes only two things to keep people in chains: The ignorance of the oppressed And the treachery of their leaders ============================================================================ You endlessly have been told that Medicare and Social Security Trust funds will, in the near future, run short of money unless benefits are decreased…

via How you can help protect Medicare and Social Security — The Most Revolutionary Act

My belief (which I have stated before) is that there is a new global economic realignment happening and the US is being left out – which is why the conditions of Americans’ lives are deteriorating so rapidly. The fact that the entire US infrastructure is computerized has left the country extremely vulnerable – which makes it extremely difficult to predict which system will collapse first – the energy or the telecommunications grid. – Dr. Stuart Bramhall

Wise words, indeed! And true! Quite frankly, I cannot wait for ALL grids to collapse. That is what is needed because the hypnotized Americans are not going to realize how fucked they are until their smartphones go dead and the lights go out. When they can no longer gas up the SUV, there will be hell to pay as well. They’ll wake the fuck up then. Donald Trump’s administration, just as all previous administrations that raided Social Security and threw in worthless IOUs that I couldn’t even use as decent toilet tissue, is also coming for Social Security.  Social Security and Medicare are not on the point of insolvency. The government prints money out of thin air and can just print more money. It has no problem printing money to throw at the U.S. Military Industrial Complex and yet, we are to believe that no monies can be found for Social Security and Medicare? Don’t believe this bullshit and don’t leave it up to the sick ass seniors to save your Social Security and Medicare because it is always left up to the old and infirm to hobble down the street with pitchforks in hand while clutching walkers and canes at the same time. This will impact US all if we allow Trump and the GOP to get away with lying that Social Security and Medicare are about to go belly up. That is simply not true.

And as the number of those living in poverty climbs, the last remaining safety net programs, such as they are, will be sorely needed especially seeing as how even the United Nations issued a shocking report, though not shocking to me, as to the extent of poverty in the United States which was quickly slammed by the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley.

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, has taken umbrage at a new United Nations report that examines entrenched poverty in the United States and calls the number of children living in poverty “shockingly high.” She called the analysis a “misleading and politically motivated document.”

A Washington Post article said that the report, written by U.N. special rapporteur on extreme poverty and human rights Philip Alston, says the United States tops the developed world with the highest rates of youth poverty, infant mortality, incarceration, income inequality and obesity. He also said that the Trump administration’s policies will deepen poverty.

Let me repeat this part! “The Trump administration’s policies will deepen poverty,” which means that, like I’ve already stated, Trump and the GOP are coming for Social Security and Medicare which will only ‘deepen poverty’ and too many Americans are living in extreme poverty as it is. While congress enjoys designer health care coverage and a great pension for life, the biggest class growth is the ‘poverty class’ and America is fast becoming a 3rd World nation. The situation is so bad that hookworm has been discovered in America again.

The UN study also found 19 out of 55 people tested in Alabama had hookworm. It’s a disease typically found in developing countries, one that was thought to have been eradicated in the US in the 1980s. Hookworm is most common in developing nations in Asia, sub-Saharan Africa, and Latin America.[2] Areas with poor sanitation, water treatment, and plumbing/sewage infrastructure are especially at risk.  And now, hookworm is also “typically found in the developing country called, ‘America’! For the love of !!!!

What in the world is hookworm? A parasitic nematode worm that inhabits the intestines of humans and other animals. It has hooked mouthparts with which it attaches itself to the wall of the gut, puncturing the blood vessels and feeding on the blood.

And yet Nikki Haley said,

“It is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America. In our country, the President, Members of Congress, Governors, Mayors, and City Council members actively engage on poverty issues every day. Compare that to the many countries around the world, whose governments knowingly abuse human rights and cause pain and suffering.”

Americans are walking around with hookworm that is ‘most commonly found in developing nations’ and so according to Nikki Haley, “it is patently ridiculous for the United Nations to examine poverty in America?” That skank is a depraved, soulless monster as is anyone who works for the Trump Administration and who condones what Trump stands for. I have never seen the like in all my born days! What the hell is wrong with US when we will sit still for this?

None of you see the writing on the wall? Are you that dense? Are your smartphones and personal assistants that distracting that you can’t see what is right in front of your very eyes? First they came for the seniors and the disabled and then they will come for you! You’d better be understanding this! Your smartphone is not going to pay your rent when robots and automation have taken your jobs. Your personal assistant, Alexa, is not going to be able to house and feed you when you lose your income and Social Security is not there to at least, help out in some small way. Obamacare is on life support and so what are you going to do if Trump and the GOP get their way and destroy Medicare? Ask Siri what to do? Yeah! Get your prescription for hookworm from Siri! Your ass is just going to be dropping worms everywhere and don’t damn well come near me with that shit!

No one in the Trump administration gives a damn about any of us who are not multi-millionaires. The United States would rather pull out of the United Nations Council on Human Rights than listen to reports that gives a clear picture in that the United States is descending into 3rd World conditions. They are making excuses that other countries should be looked at for their human rights abuses and how dare anyone confirm what many of us know and that is that the United States has already descended into 3rd World conditions for too many people, including children. Millions of people are living in deep poverty here in the states. Does that have no meaning for you whatsoever? SIGH! I throw my hands up!

‘Am I in the bad part of town?’ Tourists shocked by what they see on San Francisco streets

 

So, tourists are wondering if they have somehow, stumbled into the ‘bad part of town’ because America’s streets are filled with homeless, mentally ill, drug addicts? HA! That is laughable! Tourists can go to any city in any state in America and find the same. America is a shithole! Get used to it tourists or take your tourism dollars and spend them on a country that has not descended into the “Mother of ALL Shitholes!”

It’s something many San Franciscans see on a daily basis, outside their homes or offices and during their commutes. For better or for worse, locals are used to walking by crime scenes, have seen open injection drug use, and have witnessed mental health episodes firsthand.

“Is this normal or am I in a ‘bad part of town?’ Just walked past numerous homeless off their faces, screaming and running all over the sidewalk near Twitter HQ and then a murder scene. Wife is scared to leave hotel now,” wrote an Australian Reddit user Wednesday.

That person isn’t alone. On Sunday, another tourist from Canada asked the San Francisco Reddit community, “Why is this city so terrifying?”

“Is this normal or am I in a ‘bad part of town?’ It’s normal. Get used to it because it ain’t going nowhere no time soon because Americans have been conditioned to ignore the poverty stricken, to neglect her most vulnerable citizens, to look at them as a blight instead of as a human being who has fallen on hard times. Yes indeed, come here to America tourists and experience firsthand, what all of us Americans have gotten used to and we just don’t notice anymore. What you tourists see is no longer noticeable to us and so it does not impact us like it would someone who is used to hearing that America is the ‘land of milk and honey’ and therefore, should look the part. Hell! America hasn’t been the ‘land of milk and honey’ for the majority of her ‘citizens’ since day one. Many have just joined their ranks in being outcasts in this stolen nation. America is in her days of reaping what she has sown. Unfortunately, the poor are being impacted first, but they will not be suffering all by themselves for long because the same is coming for the rest of us. The writing is on the wall.

“Just walked past numerous homeless off their faces, screaming and running all over the sidewalk near Twitter HQ and then a murder scene.”

So, the homeless are right outside Twitter Headquarters? Well ain’t that a bitch? Those of you who are all agog over Twitter and our president’s tweets’, please explain to us why Donald Trump hasn’t tweeted about the conditions right outside his beloved Twitter’s headquarters. For if not for Twitter, how would he keep us informed of his intentions to continue to do what he can to add to the “numerous homeless off their faces, screaming and running all over the sidewalk near Twitter HQ and then a murder scene?” I am quite sure that the Draft-Dodger-In-Chief never tweeted about a murder scene near his beloved Twitter HQ. Oh no! He is too busy telling us how he has made ‘America Great Again!” Apparently, in Twitter Trump’s view, a great America is an America where there is rampant homelessness, poverty, drug addiction, used syringe needles lying around and mentally ill people screaming on the streets at things that are invisible to tourists. Ain’t America great?

“I’d been there for probably less than a day, just wandering around the center, and already seen more than enough poverty and suffering to cause me wanting to leave desperately,” wrote another visitor from London in 2017. “I saw many people talking to themselves, or to things that weren’t there. Even in a Macy’s, and there weren’t any police officers to help them or do anything about it.”

Ahhh! Someone came all  the way from London and was just appalled that they spent so much money on a trip to America just to see so much poverty and suffering, mental illness and homelessness that it made them want “to leave desperately” and never come back. So Macy’s wasn’t even up to par, eh? Well, it’s probably closing anyway. Haven’t you heard? Brick and mortar stores like Macy’s aren’t faring very well these days what with closures being announced left and right. That poverty thing you know. When there is so much abject poverty, who has money to spend shopping at Macy’s? Ask the folks who closed so many Macy’s stores. They’ll tell ya. Their customer base is drying up like a carcass in Death Valley California.

So, if you want to waste your tourism dollars by coming to America to see what America has descended into, which of course is a shithole, then by all means, come and get a front row seat and witness the descent. Witness the massive homeless problem that has caused tent cities to spring up. Witness how we treat the mentally ill. Witness with your very own eyes, the truckloads of used syringe needles lying around because you see, we have us a really huge heroin crisis going on and much hand wringing is being done about this by the CDC(Centers for Disease Control), but not much else since many of us are so bad off here in America that in order to dull the senses to what IS our reality, we need heroin. We need crystal meth. And the U.S. military gets the job done by protecting those poppy plants over in Afghanistan to send to America to enable us to get that heroin fix so that we can make it through another hellish nightmare of a day here in America. We will blow ourselves up with our meth labs to give the meth junkies another fix so that they too, can lose themselves in the temporary euphoria of a crystal meth high.

This IS America, tourists. Come on over! We welcome you. Someone needs to spend some money at our few remaining brick and mortar stores because we’re not. Haven’t you heard? Thousands of malls have closed or are closing. Oh, we are keeping Dollar Tree open and Dollar General, as well as Family Dollar. But that’s about it, unless you count the thrift stores and the drug dealers. The drug dealers are making out like bandits, but you already know this. You’ve seen plenty of evidence since I am quite sure that no one is so naive as to believe that all of those used syringe needles were there because of diabetics giving themselves insulin shots. Who is that naive?

I am so very glad that America’s dirty little secret has now been exposed for the world to see. I am so very glad that America can no longer take the high road and call other nations and countries, shitholes when this “Mother of ALL shitholes” has not one leg to stand on since they’ve all collapsed and are lying in a heap among truckloads of used syringe needles lying on sidewalks, parking lots, in front of Twitter headquarters, coffee shops and closed department stores all across America. What the tourists saw on San Francisco streets and were horrified over can be found on just about every street everywhere in America. But don’t take my word for it. Come here for a visit! You’ll never want to come back. Just ask this person!

“I’d been there for probably less than a day, just wandering around the center, and already seen more than enough poverty and suffering to cause me wanting to leave desperately,” wrote another visitor from London in 2017.”

“Desperation,” how aptly it applies to America; hopelessness, despair, distress, pain, agony, torment, torture, misery, wretchedness, defeatism. We are truly a desperate and defeated nation. I wonder….where has that great ‘American exceptionalism’ gone? Oh, my bad! That was just a bullshit PR stunt meant to lull us into feeling good about our descent as we were about to hit rock bottom; bottoming out in poverty, homelessness, mental illness and drug addiction over our despair at ‘life’ in America. What a tourist attraction.

“Am I in the bad part of town?” If you’re in America’, yes you are! Every square mile of it!

Whites Made Homeless In Hawaii Thanks To Kilauea Volcano Eruption! How Does It Feel? Ask Those Indigenous To Hawaii. They Already Know!

 

On January 31st of this year, I re-blogged a post from a fellow blogger regarding the fact that Hawaii’s indigenous population has been made homeless thanks to the Europeans moseying on over there and taking control of every piece of Hawaii, from Hawaii’s infrastructure to political representation thus rendering the voice of the true islanders, null and void.

Homeless in Hawaii

Pu’uhonua O’ Wai’anae village is Hawaii’s oldest and largest homeless community. Most people who live there are Native Hawaiian. The unofficial mayor of this community, Twinkle Borge, had this to say, “How is it that the Hawaiians are struggling? You came here and took our land from us and we are struggling.”

A third of Hawaii’s homeless population are Native Hawaiian. And the white folks who went to Hawaii and apparently made it big off the tourist trade now own multi-million dollar homes and are demanding that local and state politicians continue to enact laws that make it illegal to be homeless in Hawaii and yet another law was enacted making it illegal to ‘sit or lie’ down on the sidewalk.

What was done to these people is worse than a disgrace and those of you who are of European descent have much to answer for, too damn much and yet, you are immune to the suffering that to this very day, you are the cause. How can you even think that you can call yourselves, “human?” Because it is quite obvious that the majority of you have no conscience to bother you at all.

The average house in Hawaii costs $700,000 and it has been stated that most people have to work two jobs just to pay for somewhere to live. And yet while the native islanders are homeless, in this video there were tourists who were having wedding photos taken at the same time that people whose land this was originally are trying to find water and who have no electricity in their homeless encampment.

These are the times when I am so very glad that I am not ‘white’ or otherwise of European descent because when the time of reckoning comes, I won’t have to worry, you will! And how! And hell would be too good for the likes of you!

The Most Revolutionary Act

Now fast forward to today and the news out of Hawaii is most gratifying.

Hawaii volcano’s 3 weeks of hot lava and toxic air — with no end in sight

Gov. David Ige said the volcanic eruption and its aftermath have spread fear and uncertainty. Volcanic vents, or fissures, have cracked open across the area and gobbled up dozens of homes and vehicles.

Several fissures, or cracks in the ground, are pumping out lava that’s threatening a local geothermal plant. If lava gets in the wells at the plant, it can release hydrogen sulfide, a dangerous gas.

Yes indeed, let’s come up with a brilliant idea to build a geothermal plant on an active volcano and expect the best possible outcome. What ‘brilliance’ was behind that decision? Now, the geothermal plant workers are supposedly working furiously to cap the wells so that no other gasses are mixed with the poisonous gasses released from the volcano that is costing Hawaii’s pasty-faced population millions in tourism dollars while the mainstream media would have us believe that now is the best time to visit ‘paradise’.

While Native Hawaiians have been suffering mightily since the Americans arrived, all the focus has been on what a toll this volcanic eruption has taken on those who have no business there in the first place. At least if the island had been left to the Native Hawaiians, there would be no need for worry over a geothermal plant meeting up with flowing lava.

The arrogance of whites will result in the destruction of us all while everyone else is expected to bemoan their fate from what they put into play. Those whites in Hawaii who have been impacted by Kilauea erupting can just cry me a river because I will save my anguish for those who are their innocent victims like Twinkle Borge, who is working tirelessly to aid the indigenous population to deal with homelessness that they were experiencing long before this latest volcanic eruption. And what she said about what the Americans have done to her and her people bears repeating.

“How is it that the Hawaiians are struggling? You came here and took our land from us and we are struggling.” – Twinkle Borge

Yeah! How is it that her people are struggling while you pasty-faced devils stole those peoples’ land right from underneath them, but yet, you are the very ones who are now wailing and moaning because lava is now covering your houses and you’re sitting somewhere in a Red Cross shelter expecting pity and talking about how bored you are. Fuck you! I sincerely hope that every single dwelling that houses an American pasty-faced piece of shit from the mainland manages to come into contact with hot ass lava flows and is incinerated. Then sit your nasty ass down somewhere with a tent over your head and find out how it feels to live like Twinkle Borge and thousands of other Native Hawaiians.  You’ll get no damn sympathy and pity from me because as far as I am concerned, you don’t have a plight. You’re about to come into contact with red hot karma and ain’t she a bitch??!!! Now, bitch and moan about that! And then take your pasty ass on over to the Virgin Islands and deal with the ongoing devastation of those islands thanks to last year’s hurricanes. And remember, hurricane season starts June 1st. You’re just in time for a relaxing time on yet another island ‘paradise’. Running out of ‘paradises’ are you? Well too fucking bad! Because this planet ain’t done with you pasty-faced shits yet!

Kilauea, fucking burn their shit up over there for the next ten goddamn years!!! You nasty white bastards never think that you’ll ever get your due, but when the innocents of this planet are not able to beat your pasty-ass back, this planet can, will and is! Throw your money and credit cards at Kilauea and see how much of a difference it makes to Kilauea if you’re pasty-assed and rich!
