So, Trump Has The Feds Beating Up White Folks Now??!!

 

 

 

White folks in Portland Oregon are exclaiming, “This is not a dictatorship!” But apparently, Trump is paying them no mind because Trump has stated that he is going to send federal troops to states Trump says are “out-of-control thanks to Democratic leadership.”

‘This is not a dictatorship!’: Portland pushes back harder against Trump, federal agents

“My sense is they chose Portland because if they had rolled this out in, say, Minneapolis, it would mean to come in direct confrontation with many more Black activists,” said Joe Lowndes, a professor of political science at the University of Oregon. “With Portland, it’s a whiter city and they can demonize Antifa or the idea of anarchist looters and kind of take race out of it in a direct way, and make it seem more sympathetic.’’

If anything, activists said, the president’s show of force seemed to give protesters an injection of energy and enthusiasm, with many returning after weeks of shrinking protests.

“People are legit afraid for their rights,” Gow, a nurse, told USA TODAY. “They are coming for our rights. They are exercising martial law.”

According to what I have read, Portland, Oregon only has about 40,000 Black folks living there and so 40,000 Black folks are not out on the streets of Portland, daily getting beaten up, pelted with non-lethal bullets and other projectiles and getting gassed and arrested. And do you remember awhile back I put up a blog titled,

Hold Up! Wait A Damn Minute! Why So Many Weapons, Feds?

A new report by American Transparency, a nonpartisan watchdog that compiles data on public expenditures, indicates the militarization of ordinary American life goes well beyond law enforcement and regular citizens.

67 federal agencies during the fiscal years 2006 to 2014 amassed stockpiles of guns, ammunition and military-style equipment to the tune of $1.48 billion.

The Department of Veterans Affairs, which spent $11.7 million on military equipment.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Small Business Administration (SBA), Smithsonian Institution, Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and many other agencies purchased guns, ammo, and military-style equipment.”

Overall, American Transparency estimates there are more than 200,000 non-military federal officers and security personnel not attached to the Pentagon, which is a force larger than the Marine Corps, with its 180,000 personnel.

“The recent growth of the federal arsenal begs the questions: Just who are the feds planning to battle?” the author of the report, Adam Andrzejewski, wrote for Forbes.

Yeah, it begs the question, “Just who are the feds planning to battle?” And as you can see “Hold Up! Wait A Damn Minute! Why So Many Weapons, Feds?” was originally published in 2016 and not even 5 years later, the feds are on the streets of Portland, Oregon in unmarked vehicles while dressed in camouflage, pulling people off the streets and throwing them into unmarked vans and hauling them off.

One would think this was Nazi Germany, but then, Amerikkka did give the Nazis free rides over to this shithole and for what purpose? I’ll let you decide. Meanwhile, there is a hue and cry from multiple mayors demanding that Trump cease and desist with his threats of sending federal troops to their cities.

US mayors demand stop to federal policing with ‘no oversight’ in Portland

Fifteen mayors of major US cities have sent a letter to US federal law enforcement officials demanding a stop to the sending of federal forces to cities and the removal of federal officers from Portland, Oregon.

Also, there have been multiple lawsuits filed in essence stating that what Trump is doing is illegal. Even a retired US Army Lieutenant weighed in and stated that “What kind of bullshit is this?” Retired Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré questioned the deployment of unmarked and armed federal troops at protests in Portland, Oregon by the Trump administration. “They were wearing military uniforms. That uniform represents the cloth of our nation — for people who don’t draw overtime, who serve around the world at the direction of the national command authority — and it’s not to be used as an instrument of protest suppression.”

Not to mention that there has been outrage expressed over the severe beat down that a Navy veteran was subjected to at the hands of those federal troops of Trump’s. Navy veteran, 53-year old Christopher David decided to join the protests and while he was speaking with federal agents, he was beaten and sprayed with pepper gas. Christopher David had this to say of the incident, ” “What they were doing was unconstitutional,” said David, a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and a Navy veteran. ”Sometimes I worry that people take the oath of office or the oath to the Constitution, and it’s just a set of words that mean nothing. They really don’t feel in their heart the weight of those words.”

Well, Christopher David, to that I say, the ‘man’ who sent those federal troops in to beat and gas you was a draft dodger and Amerikkkans went to the polls and voted for that draft dodger, who has in turn sent federal troops to beat and gas white folks who have, in his opinion, gotten out-of-line and need to be reined in. Why should anyone in Amerikkka be surprised at this? When white Amerikkkans decided to vote for a lying, egotistical, narcissistic, misogynistic, racist, bigoted, draft-dodging asshole for president, what did they expect would happen? Exactly what is happening. But for some strange reason, whites thought that they would be immune to getting gassed and beaten and arrested by federal troops. Well, I guess Trump sure showed you. And on top of that, many of the protesters in Portland, Oregon went home and told their mommies that those big ole, mean ole federal troops were gassing and beating them.

 

 

The white mommies showed up at the protest with their yellow shirts on the very next day only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets.

I seriously hope the world is watching this shitshow. Nancy Pelosi has been wailing and moaning over how the Hong Kong protesters have been treated by the authorities over there and yet, the streets of this shithole, that lauds itself as democratic and with freedom of speech and assembly and some more shit, is looking like a warzone.

US double standards on domestic riots and Hong Kong turmoil mocked on Chinese internet

“Beautiful landscape” and “America Spring” became hot words used online in China to mock the double standards and hypocrisy of the Trump administration and some US Congress members, as well as US media outlets, for being critical and tough toward their domestic massive nationwide demonstrations but encouraging violent activities in Hong Kong.

Chinese experts noted that if US politicians understood that if they encourage violence in another country, their words might backfire on them one day, they would probably “think twice” before commenting again on the Hong Kong turmoil in the future.

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in June 2019 called the Hong Kong citywide protests “a beautiful sight to behold” but her words were deployed back against her sarcastically online over the weekend by Chinese net users commenting on nationwide riots across the US.

At a press conference on October 24, 2019, Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesperson Hua Chunying said that “I would like to say this to Ms Pelosi: Please keep the ‘beautiful sight’ to yourselves because we want nothing of it.”

Some Chinese internet users called Hua a “prophet” on the Chinese internet’s social media networks.

“We didn’t expect that US politicians can enjoy this kind of ‘beautiful sight’ at home so soon,” was one typical comment.

Apparently, Amerikkkan lawmakers can interfere in what is going down in another area of the globe insofar as protests are concerned, but when those protests take place on Amerikkkan soil by Amerikkkans, then “put that insurrection down right now, goddamn it!” seems to be the call from all and sundry. So, what the Chinese is saying is “Look to your own collapsing house of cards before telling us what to do about ours.”

Nancy Pelosi can just shut the fuck up and Joe Biden as well because both would be doing the same thing if the Democrats were at the helm of this stinking, sinking Titanic. Whites are out on the streets because they’ve got no jobs either since COVID-19 has come along and put paid to that shit. It is not just American descendants of slavery who are hurting in this fucked up economy. And while the Democrats and Republicans fight over what’s to be included in another “too little too late” stimulus package, COVID-19 has ramped up, unlike what was originally thought in that during the summer months, COVID-19 would be a no-show. Well, COVID-19 sure showed up and in spades if the lamestream media is to be believed. So much for waiting until cold weather sets in for a resurgence in COVID-19 cases. Who the hell is going to be left to vote because between Trump’s federal troops busting heads and COVID-19, there is already talk of not enough poll volunteers for the upcoming November election. So it would do those shits in congress good to focus on the shit that’s going down in this shithole instead of worrying about what some protesters are being subjected to in Hong Kong since the protesters here in this shithole are getting the same treatment that Nancy Pelosi bemoaned over in Hong Kong. “Mind Amerikkka’s business, Pelosi since Amerikkka is eyeball deep in shit and that cannot be denied!”

 

“World, are you watching this shit?!” I sure hope so! This shit over here is a prime example of “the pot calling the kettle, black.” Hypocrisy has always reigned supreme in this racist shithole and it always will regardless of what party is at the helm of this lopsided, sinking Titanic. Donald Trump’s claim is that he is merely protecting federal buildings when he sends in federal troops. Does that shithead not understand that those federal buildings were built using the tax dollars of the very Amerikkkans who are protesting on the doorstep of those ‘federal’ buildings? His presidential salary is being paid for by our tax dollars. Every single member of the House and Senate is being paid by our tax dollars. We have every right to do what we please with those buildings because we damn well paid for them. Federal buildings, my ass. Those are the peoples buildings. What Trump is doing is illegal, but when has that ever stopped him? And since no one has the balls to haul his lunatic ass off to an asylum, he is going to continue to make sure that more lives are lost thanks to his stupidity in his response to COVID-19 and in sending in federal troops from every agency from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to Immigration and Customs Enforcement and other agencies listed under the umbrella of the Department of Homeland Security. So, Portland’s residents are now listed as either terrorists or they need to be deported; which one is it? I could not make this shit up if I tried.

Organized Black Militias Are Forming Everywhere Because America Won’t Stop Oppressing And Killing Black People — #BlackLivesmatter ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

 

Thoughtco. Com

This country was built on systematic racism. That system ensures the likelihood of white genetic and economic survival at the expense of black people, black communities, and black civilizations. Systemic racism is both a theoretical concept and a reality. As a theory, it is premised on the research-supported claim that the United States was founded as a racist society, that racism is thus embedded in all social institutions, structures, and social relations within our society. Rooted in a racist foundation, systemic racism today is composed of intersecting, overlapping, and codependent racist institutions, policies, practices, ideas, and behaviors that give an unjust amount of resources, rights, and power to white people while denying them to people of color.

via Organized Black Militias Are Forming Everywhere Because America Won’t Stop Oppressing And Killing Black People — #BlackLivesmatter ✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿

Finally, someone gets it! Black people will NOT gain freedom from oppression, racism, gentrification, mass incarceration, police brutality, income inequality, the school-to-prison pipeline, mass homelessness, poverty, mass unemployment, low wage jobs, drug and gun saturated communities plagued with violence by just continuing to listen to that fucked up group, “BlackLivesMatter” that only wants us to continue to protest and march down the goddamn street with a lame ass protest sign that ain’t doing shit!

Fuck shit up! If the whites can take their goddamn guns to the Michigan state capitol and not one goddamn kkkop showed up to arrest those Klan motherfuckers and they even went inside the goddamn Michigan state capitol with assault rifles, then why were the kkkops busily arresting Black protesters for protesting the kkkops murdering Black people with impunity?

Did “BlackLivesMatter” show up at protests with guns? Hell no! They showed up with paper signs while screeching, “No justice! No peace! Stop the racist police!” When has that stupid shit did anything about stopping the racist police? How many Black people have been murdered since the FIRST protest sign was made? Black folks been hollering about that damn shit long before the Civil Rights Movement of the 60s and here it is 2020 and Black folks are still doing that shit??!!

When an armed white militia stormed Michigan’s state capital, acting aggressive and belligerent, there was no major fuss or alarm sounded. In fact, the President called them “good people.”

Exactly! And yet Trump has stated that painting “Black Lives Matter” on a city street in New York is  a “symbol of hate” — a description he’s refused to use for Confederate emblems — that would spoil the “luxury avenue” he once called home.

We don’t stand a chance against hate that insidious, evil and entrenched in this hellhole and that’s coming from the president of this cesspool of hatred, ignorance, racism and white supremacy. But yet, we are to PEACEFULLY protest. We are to PEACEFULLY put forth our grievances against the establishment. Fuck that! We are no less a citizen of this cesspool of corruption, war crimes, crimes against humanity and some more shit than those Klan motherfuckers that showed up at the Michigan state capitol.

Don’t no damn body respect, subservience. The only thing that’ll get recognized is meeting force with force. Who the fuck is listening when we merely shout “No justice! No peace! Stop the racist police??!!!” Certainly NOT the police because they’re still murdering us every goddamn day for simply breathing. That piece of shit racist, bigot in the White House certainly does NOT respect us since he has declared that merely “painting Black Lives Matter” is a symbol of hate. WHAT.THE.FUCK. That bastard has pardoned a flaming, stomp down criminal, Roger Stone, while countless Black people are still incarcerated over having had on their person, a goddamn plant and we really expect some relief from that shit??!!!

Punk ass bitch, keyboard warriors, we don’t fucking need, so y’all keep your scared ass bitch asses at home while those of us with some damn spunk go out and get the shit done.You sit somewhere and post Youtube video after Youtube video droning on and on about how you are ‘The Solution’ while begging folks to send you money via cash app, Paypal and Patreon. Yeah! That’s how you get the shit done, by begging!

No, this is how you get the shit done! You go meet those motherfuckers, head on! You go fuck shit up! You don’t supplicate yourself to your enemy. You don’t turn your back on your enemy. Yeah! You go and ask Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., how that ‘peaceful this’ and ‘peaceful that’ worked out for him. Oh that’s right, you can’t, they shot his ass dead! Meet like with fucking like!

They won’t even arrest the killers of Breonna Taylor.

The idea and systems of America were never made to empower and protect Black people.

Breonna Taylor’s mother is still sitting somewhere waiting on some sort of justice for her daughter and as of yet, no one is even in custody or has been charged with murdering Breonna. You would think that Breonna murdered herself. But that young lady is dead because Klan kops bust her door down and shot her at least 8 times and they were at the wrong address because the suspect that they were after had already been apprehended. If I had bust down someone’s door and shot them dead, where the fuck would I be? In fucking prison and we ALL know that shit! But because whites write the laws for everyone but themselves, they are ABOVE the law while we are sitting up in jails and prisons over some bullshit feeding the FOR PROFIT PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX just like our ancestors fed these rich, bloated whites that got rich off the backs of our ancestors who saw not one thin dime for all of their hard work and the whites to this very day, still claim that those slaves were worth nothing since their descendants have NOTHING to this very day and yet if your ass is a willing IMMIGRANT, you can come the fuck over here and get as many grants as you need to open up a business and make bank while American descendants of slavery head to a food bank and a homeless shelter. We should have long since been fed the fuck up with this bullshit! Ain’t no goddamn body for us, but we should be FOR us, goddamn it!

In other words, Black people who love Black people are the only people who will protect Black people. We can’t count on the government, the police, or even your friendly neighborhood Black Lives Matter protester to protect Black people.

Goddamn right, we can’t! And this bears repeating.

We can’t count on the government, the police, or even your friendly neighborhood Black Lives Matter protester to protect Black people.

I don’t trust ‘friendly’ people any damn way, there’s something wrong with them because look the fuck around you, what’s there to be ‘friendly’ about? Not a goddamn thing. Get the fuck out of my face with that fake ass ‘friendly’ shit. I got no time for that shit!

BlackLivesMatter is a setup! That’s all it is! It is to give Black people the illusion of doing something about systematic racism and the fact of the matter is, BlackLivesMatter is not doing a goddamn thing but taking donations and doing jack shit with them. In fact, someone needs to start an investigation and find out what that group is doing with its donations. But understand this, I’d never give a fucking dime to that piece of shit group because that group’s sole purpose is to appease the whites by making sure the whites understand that the message to Black folks is to just keep marching and keep dying and march some damn more and that’s exactly what’s been happening. Why on earth would any sane person continue to support THAT shit???!!!

America will not end it’s systems of racism and white supremacy voluntarily, so more and more black people are forced to adopt a more militant and revolutionary disposition as a means of survival in a racist society.

This is why armed Black Militias are popping up all over America.

If Klan militias can march through the goddamn streets of Amerikkka, unmolested, then we have that right as well. What’s good for them, should be good for us and if it isn’t, then at least we go out on our feet and not on our knees with only a goddamn sign to show that that was all the fuck we were about.

“The NFAC (Not F*cking Around Coalition) led by Grand Master Jay showed up in force at the birthplace of the KKK, Stone Mountain, GA. Most of the members are ex-military. They drew a sharp contrast between themselves and the Black Lives Matter movement, making it known that they aren’t all about marching or bringing signs to gunfights. Marching isn’t the only response to oppression. Another response is getting armed and being ready to intervene in violent attacks against our people.”

PUSHING BLACK NEWS (@pushing_black)

 

The NFAC (Not Fucking Around Coalition) is at least a damn start. And in the comment section, this is what I saw.

Good since the peaceful protest isn’t working, this was the next step. I would like to join.

Next!

How do my family and I join?

Next!

How do I join?

And I want to add my request.

How do I join? Where do I sign? Enuff is a goddamn nuff! I’m one of those Black hillbilly motherfuckers! We was a knocking back moonshine and learning how to shoot at the age of 5. We already locked and loaded! So, come MY way, Klan motherfuckers. That last thing you gone see is a damn “No justice! No peace!” sign and you can bank on that!

 

 

Why I Did NOT ‘Celebrate’ Juneteenth

 

 

So, what exactly is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth

[jo͞oːnˌtēːnTH, ˌjo͞onˈtēnTH, jo͞o:nˈtē:nTH]

a holiday celebrated on 19 June to commemorate the emancipation of enslaved people in the US. The holiday was first celebrated in Texas, where on that date in 1865, in the aftermath of the Civil War, slaves were declared free under the terms of the 1862 Emancipation Proclamation.
What does emancipation mean?
emancipation

[əˌmansəˈpāSH(ə)n]

NOUN
the fact or process of being set free from legal, social, or political restrictions; liberation.
“the emancipation of feminist ideas”
synonyms:
freeing · liberation · liberating · setting free · release · releasing · letting loose/out · setting loose/free · discharge · unchaining · unfettering · unshackling · untying · unyoking · uncaging · unbridling · freedom · liberty · manumission · disenthrallment
  • the freeing of someone from slavery.
    “the early struggle for emancipation from slavery”

 

So when you look at why Juneteenth is celebrated and you look at what emancipation means, tell me, American Descendants of Slavery, how are you free, liberated, unshackled, unyoked, uncaged, unbridled and unfettered?

When the protesters were in Minneapolis going the fuck off, those who are descendants of the racist shits that enslaved our ancestors were busy spying on the mostly Black protesters via drones, spy planes and spy helicopters in order to arrest people who were supposedly, liberated. But we know that we are not liberated because the protesters were protesting because a Black man was detained and murdered for no reason. So, what were you celebrating on Juneteenth? That you enjoy enslavement? That you enjoy being spied on by the same government that dragged your ancestors here to become slaves for them? Did you celebrate Juneteenth because the whites are championing that day as though there is some meaning to it for us because if you are, then you are so stupid that you could actually be made to believe that shit don’t stink.

As long as the whites are telling you to ‘celebrate’ some bullshit, why…there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Black History Month…well, there you go. When the whites tell you to celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day…why there you go. Those days have no meaning for us. Those days are the whites’ way of saying, “Look, I’ve given you much to celebrate. Now go out and buy shit and shut the hell up because that is all that we owe you. Fuck reparations. You’ll get a few days in which to celebrate what you think are freedoms.” And you know what, most of us do just that. You accept so little and will rejoice over a turd handed to you, especially if you are being told that that turd has special significance to you.

Whites are flaming liars, thieves, criminals and murderers; that’s what they’ve always been and that’s what they always will be. You cannot expect whites to do shit that would make a gnat’s ass worth of real difference in your life. They will talk shit to you and hope that you continue to buy it and eat it and you do and so why would they feel pressured to actually do anything of substance; anything of meaning? They wouldn’t.

When you celebrated Juneteenth, did it put any money into your pocket? Did it give you health insurance? Did it cure your diabetes since you have diabetes because of poor diet because you work minimum wage jobs and cannot afford the proper foods with nutrients needed for a healthy body? Did it move you out of a crime infested neighborhood that is wracked with gang violence? Did it close down the liquor store in your neighborhood owned by a foreigner brought over here for the express purpose of further reducing your time spent on this planet above ground? Did celebrating Juneteenth get the bank to approve a home loan for you? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you approved for an apartment in a nice section of town? Did celebrating Juneteenth get you into college? What was the purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth? There was none and the whites know this. The purpose of you celebrating Juneteenth was all for the whites. It had absolutely nothing to do with you since the whites know that whatever bone they toss you, you will run with it, be thankful for it and don’t question why the whites are hyping up some piece of shit ‘day of emancipation’ that never took place, because make no mistake, we are still slaves. We are still slaves in every way.

Look around you. What group in this country is in the worst possible condition? The group that was hellbent on celebrating Juneteenth, that’s who. What the fuck do you have to celebrate? American descendants of slavery are the poster children for homelessness, income inequality, mass incarceration, abject hunger, childhood poverty, high school drop-out rates out of the ballpark, inadequate or no health care, high mortality rates for Black women, babies and children and for both Black men and women, high mortality rates from being murdered by cops. And statistically speaking, we are at the bottom, economically and so disadvantaged, it has been stated that Black household wealth stands at $7.00. We have no real and true wealth; no tangible and intangible assets.

But that was not always the case. Whites destroyed everything we ever built for ourselves, from our homes to our institutions to our movements and so why do you think that they have no problem with us ‘celebrating’ Juneteenth, Black History Month and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Day? It is because that is ALL we are to have. And for most of you, that seems to be enough!

And yet, when the protests were raging, all we heard from the whites and from the Black misleaders was, “Look! They are burning down their own neighborhoods!” What fucking neighborhoods do we own? Black people don’t own shit! The lone Black barbershop on the corner is nothing to screech about because, HELL! In Baltimore, MD, Black people have taken to doing curbside barbering. Those goddamn foreigners that the whites have over here on expired visas own that shit that was burned to the ground. If you look at the news out of Minneapolis, there was some Somali man standing there talking about how he owned this and that and was going to help the burned out community. SERIOUSLY??!! How did his tree climbing ass, crawl down from a tree in Somalia, fly the fuck over here and own some damn businesses when Black people, who were born here and are descendants of slaves, have to operate a ‘curbside’ barbershop and yet the whites and the Black misleaders want to exclaim that we are burning down our own damn businesses? What businesses? Yeah! Go do your research and get back to me on that. American descendants of slavery are doing so poorly because it is by design. Whites know why! And they intend on keeping that status quo the same for why else is every other group that comes over here, given every advantage in the world to build up shit, while our shit gets torn down by the whites who spy on us, constantly? They spy on us to make sure that we don’t get any ideas that we are ever going to get ahead because they make damn sure that they nip that shit in the bud before it can even get off the goddamn ground.

But we can happily celebrate Juneteenth because it does NOTHING for us! It is not supposed to, but we are satisfied because Amerikkka, this fucking year, celebrated Juneteenth with us. Ain’t that some shit??!! Indeed, it was!

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Read this and weep(some more)!

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

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

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

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

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

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

I Can’t Wait To See How The Whites Are Going To React To Martial Law

 

Let me make one thing clear right off the bat, America’s descendants of slavery have been under martial law since our ancestors were first dragged to this shithole and so whatever the government enacts to stop Amerikkkans from doing….ANYTHING will absolutely be NOTHING to us because, like I’ve already stated, we have been on lockdown or Martial Law or whatever you want to call it since DAY FUCKING ONE!

This was ALL planned long ago! Those of you who think differently, keep reading. Each and every single Administration has been trying to dismantle Social Security and Medicare. Austerity measures have been put in place in almost ALL countries throughout the world. Mass protests were a result and you seriously think that coronavirus is merely a coincidence since it has been stated that this virus is mainly killing those who have retired? And yet ALL of us are being affected because we are ALL to sit in our homes, on lockdown, while the killing off of seniors in every country continues. Why are children mostly NOT affected? Those affected the most by this have been elderly people and people who are more than likely disabled. This is NOT by accident. World governments are not seriously trying to protect the health and safety of their people. And it is a fact that the U.S. government was not nor has ever tried to protect the health and safety of its people. Continue reading and you’ll find out why I stated this.

Live updates: States shut down restaurants, nightlife; Federal Reserve slashes interest rates to zero

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo is urging President Trump to activate the Army Corps of Engineers to prepare emergency medical facilities in response to the coronavirus outbreak at the same time leaders in New York City are calling for a citywide shutdown.

Please….put New York on lockdown! Put every city in every state on lockdown. Use all that military equipment from the Iraq and Afghanistan war that are on the streets in every city in Amerikkka especially, since this is what the equipment was to be used for.

Back in June of 2016, I posted a blog titled, “Hold Up, Wait A Damn Minute! Why So Many Weapons, Feds?

Remember this little gem from 2016?

Report: FDA, Smithsonian, other fed groups gathering war arsenals

A new report by American Transparency, a nonpartisan watchdog that compiles data on public expenditures, indicates the militarization of ordinary American life goes well beyond law enforcement and regular citizens.

67 federal agencies during the fiscal years 2006 to 2014 amassed stockpiles of guns, ammunition and military-style equipment to the tune of $1.48 billion.

The Department of Veterans Affairs, which spent $11.7 million on military equipment.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Small Business Administration (SBA), Smithsonian Institution, Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology, and many other agencies purchased guns, ammo, and military-style equipment.”

Overall, American Transparency estimates there are more than 200,000 non-military federal officers and security personnel not attached to the Pentagon, which is a force larger than the Marine Corps, with its 180,000 personnel.

“The recent growth of the federal arsenal begs the questions: Just who are the feds planning to battle?” the author of the report, Adam Andrzejewski, wrote for Forbes.

Yeah, it begs the question, “Just who are the feds planning to battle?”

Uh, if I had to guess, I would guess, US! We the PEOPLE of these fucked up states of AmeriKKKa!

False flag attack after false flag attack has been staged and/or engineered for the benefit of continuing to bring to light the need for AmeriKKKans to be disarmed while the feds continue to amass an arsenal that will be used on the disarmed Amerikkkans.

The feds are, as usual, up to no good and are attempting to disarm Amerikkkans by constantly pointing out how violent and gun happy we are while the government had no problem arming the nation’s KKKops with military equipment from overseas warzones. And now, to find out that the Food and Drug Administration, the Small Business Administration, the Smithsonian Institution, the Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology and many other agencies are racking up “$313,958 on paintball equipment, along with $14.7 million on Tasers, $1.6 million on unmanned aircraft, $8.2 million on buckshot, $7.44 million on projectiles, and $4 million on grenades/launchers,” is extremely telling of how hypocritical the shits in congress are when pretending to stage sit-ins over assault weapons bans while knowing all the while that every federal agency from the Institute for the Relief of Beehive Control to the Buffalo Institute on Bison Safety has amassed a shitload of goddamn paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers for the express purpose of controlling and killing our ass when the shit hits the fan in a big ass way!

No more will I shout up and down and rail against the need for assault weapons. I will not call for a ban on assault weapons when the Food and Drug Administration has the ability to not only kill my ass through big pharma and corporate AmeriKKKa by way of food recalls, but at the same time, they are planning to send a grenade up my ass just in case big pharma and my goddamn bad food don’t cut my ass down! We are about to get fucked up!! And if that is not crystal clear to you, I don’t know what it will take to make it so!

For one thing, why is The Department of Veterans Affairs spending so much on paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers to the tune of $11.7 million when veterans are being denied necessary and what could have been lifesaving medical procedures if the wait time had not been so long? The Veterans Administration could have put that $11.7 million to good goddamn use in taking care of those who are supposedly held in such high esteem by the president, congress and the AmeriKKKan people since they are always going on and on about how they ‘thank those who have put their lives on the line’ for this shithole! So, now we know where millions of dollars went that did not go to help veterans who have died thanks in part to receiving no medical care from the VA. It is more important to amass an arsenal to be used against those veterans since the feds have deemed every AmeriKKKan citizen to be a threat to this shithole, even against those who have ‘defended’ it.

Why does the Bureau of Engraving and Printing need paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers? Does printing money out of thin air need paintball equipment? I don’t fucking think so! Can a Taser print money out of thin air? Fuck no! Can they use unmanned aircraft to print money? Again, hell no! How about buckshot? Buckshot? What the fuck do those fuckers need with buckshot? To fill your ass with when even the smoke and mirrors of printing fake ass money no longer is able to hold off the masses of starving, homeless people, that’s why and then grenades/launchers will be used to make sure that there are no people to complain and whine about the fact that this shithole finally sank and that there are no lifeboats or jackets.

What is the Social Security Administration preparing for? It is preparing for gramma’s justified rage when her Social Security check is not deposited into her bank account, that’s what it is preparing for! As has been noted in every other industrialized nation, seniors are in the majority and the money is just not there to sustain the demand since world leaders have stolen, pillaged and plundered the money of their citizens. There is no money for the continuation of pension payments. Just ask the pensioners in Detroit, MI, Stockton, CA and in many other AmeriKKKan cities. And overseas, remember the austerity in Greece is so bad that many pensioners are committing suicide and the citizens of France are even now, protesting in a big ass way. And in Venezuela, food shortages are causing some to hunt dogs, cats and pigeons for food. Shut up AmeriKKKans because Fido is now fair game when ‘humans’ are hungry. Hell! Fido will more than likely look good to you in a year or so. You may have even less time than that to get used to the idea of Fido on your dinner plate! You’ll wish Harambe had been shot and placed on your breakfast bar instead!

Why does the United States Mint need paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers? What does it do? Yeah, figure it out and then get a clue! And newsfuckingflash, since there is no gold in Fort Knox, where’d it get to?

What the fuck does the Smithsonian Institute need all that shit for? Oh, that’s right! It’s in Washington, D.C. and that is where folks are going to go when they finally realize just how fucked they are! But they got the shit to handle you motherfuckers and in a most lethal way!

Shit is hitting the fan, left and right in major cities all across this shithole and it is only going to get worse and the feds are preparing for the shit to get worse. Where some of you live right now, it’s not happening, but it soon will because like the Black Plague, this shit is contagious and it will leave no one, unaffected. The shit is getting too deep to scoop and pretty soon, we’ll all be drowning in shit!

Who are the terrorists? I’ll give you a hint! It’s not ISIS or ISIL or even the Taliban! It’s your own goddamn piece of shit government! ISIS is not amassing billions in paintball equipment, projectiles, unmanned aircraft, buckshot and grenades/launchers to fuck your ass up, the U.S. government is and who is the U.S. government? Why, they are you and me. So that means that those in the U.S. who are working for the feds know exactly what’s up and they aim to launch a missile up your ass when told to do so and make no mistake, they will. And your guns will be no match for unmanned aircraft, projectiles and grenades/launchers. Because you see, we are too busy hating and killing one another over skin tone while the feds are an equal opportunity killer. While we are fighting over the gay rights issue which is a non issue, the feds are preparing to fuck us all up. We are being pointed in a certain direction to get the different groups fighting against each other while the feds are busily making their preparations for what they have put into play. Continue to ignore what is right in front of you and it won’t matter if you’re Black, white, gay or straight, Christian or Muslim; a grenade launcher won’t care about that and neither will any other projectile type missile. You’d better fucking get a clue and I wouldn’t waste any time over getting a clue! This shit ain’t fucking playing with US!


AGAIN, the above was posted back in June of 2016 and today, there are calls for total lockdowns of entire cities. States are closing ALL school districts and some governors of many states are stating that this school year may not resume. Many retail stores are shuttering their doors and not because they are bankrupt, but because officials are ‘suggesting’ that they close “for the benefit of the public,” of course. There are restrictions on travel, all public events have been cancelled and we are all to sit at home and wait for coronavirus to subside. Meanwhile, armed guards are going to start showing up outside our doors to make sure that we don’t get any ideas that when we get antsy, we can venture forth and congregate in a restaurant or bar since even restaurants are being encouraged to close their doors and initiate delivery or drive-through service.

Meanwhile, the stockpiling continues.

 

Does this look familiar? It should.

The pasta aisle is almost emptied out.

I don’t even know what was on the shelves in the above picture.

And there’s more or should I say, less.

What’s left of the bread aisle is in the above picture.

Flour was gone and many other staples almost gone.

Another section of the bread department featured in the above picture.

Stocking up? Or hoarding? Probably a bit of both.

The above picture showcases what was left of the ‘bottled water’ aisle.

The above picture depicts what’s left in the toilet tissue aisle.

Can you find any eggs in the above picture? I didn’t think so.

Can you tell me what used to be down this aisle? I’ve forgotten.

Seriously folks, are you getting a clue as to where this is ALL heading? Do you seriously think that this is simply a matter of protecting us from a virus? If you do, then please explain to me why the feds were buying(in bulk), an arsenal of weapons as early as 2006? While you are concentrating on worrying about coronavirus, remember that the United States Mint was procuring paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers over a decade ago. The Department of Veterans Affairs, while denying veterans the care they needed, was spending millions on paintball equipment, Tasers, unmanned aircraft, buckshot, projectiles and grenades/launchers to the tune of $11.7 million, but all of a sudden, the feds are worried about some seniors coming down with coronavirus and dying as a result? Seriously?!! I call “Bullshit!” 

The Food and Drug Administration, the Small Business Administration, the Smithsonian Institution, the Social Security Administration, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, United States Mint, Department of Education, Bureau of Engraving and Printing, National Institute of Standards and Technology and many other agencies  racked up “$313,958 on paintball equipment, along with $14.7 million on Tasers, $1.6 million on unmanned aircraft, $8.2 million on buckshot, $7.44 million on projectiles, and $4 million on grenades/launchers,” all to do what and to whom? What was the purpose? What is it all for? Why was this money allocated to these departments for the express purpose of acquiring a war arsenal?

But now, along comes coronavirus and everything that has led up this virus is just coincidental? Right?

Folks, I’ve got news for you, especially you white folks. If coronavirus does not kill you, then you and the feds will be duking it out on the streets of every city in every state in this racist shithole because, goddamn it, you are WHITE and no one, and I do mean, NO ONE is going to tell you what you cannot do. Is that right? Well be prepared to go to war with those who look like you because you are about to go on lockdown otherwise known as Martial Law alongside my Black ass and you ain’t hardly going to like THAT shit! You and YOUR kind can tell me what to do ALL day and ALL night, but tell you what to do? Oh hell naw! Shit is going to hit the fan then and how! They’ve already told you that you cannot attend a pro basketball game. They’ve told you that Major League Baseball is not going to start regular season and so there goes that. You cannot attend the theater; the opera. You cannot take a cruise. You’re terrified to get on a flight. Schools have been closed and so what in the world are you going to do with those unholy terrors that are your children when you were used to depositing them off on some hapless teacher while you took yourself for some spa time and some par for the course time and knocked back some drinks at the Country Club? And now, they are telling you that you cannot go to restaurants. You cannot go to bars and that pretty soon, entire cities are going to be on lockdown. So, what the fuck are you going to do, whites? Are you going to sit at home and tell Alexa to play some upbeat music? Are you going to sit at home and play Scrabble, day after day after day? Are you going to finally read a book? Or do you even remember what those are?

I for one, cannot wait until the shit hits the fan because the shit has not even begun to hit the fan yet. Oh, you still have the right to run to Walmart and scrabble around for any remaining toilet tissue, water and pasta, beans and bread, but that’s going to get old, don’t you think? And when it does and the bar is closed and the cruise has been cancelled and the flights have been cancelled and all you have is the ability to move about in your sprawling McMansion with your loud ass kids demanding some excitement, demanding to be entertained, why you can’t even take them to Disneyland or to Disney World because they’ve both been closed. No more Disney fantasy land. Oh, what to do! What to do! So, I’m just going to sit back and wait until abject boredom sets in because you’re going to be shooting your way out of that damn house and U.S. soldiers are going to be shooting back.

You see, white folks, us poor Black folks, we are used to this shit! But we know you ain’t. You’re WHITE and you’re privileged and you’ve got that sense of white supremacy going on and all and so, AGAIN…no one and I do mean no one is going to tell you what you can or cannot do! And it is going to be just a matter of time before you lose it. So what will it be, whites? Death by this bullshit coronavirus or death at the hands of U.S. soldiers? Governments ALL across the globe has got everyone’s panties in a bunch because something had to come along to put a stop to worldwide mass protests of austerity, income inequality, inadequate health care or nonexistent health care and the list is endless. Coronavirus was right on time…and was planned for. The hype is causing you to be subdued for the moment, but what do you think is going to happen when you are fed up with being forced to curtail your activities? How long are you going to be content to sit at home and worry about a virus that was planned to be let loose over a decade ago to be aimed at a certain segment of the global population? When is the lure of a bar or a restaurant or a spa or a Country Club or a cruise or an island vacation going to be too much for you to ignore? Nothing is ever going to be the same again, that much you can count on. How you will eventually react to this forced inactivity remains to be seen, but I cannot wait to see who blinks first.

The only reason the government has not initiated Martial Law or curfews as has other countries is because this shithole’s whites are locked and loaded. Other country’s people are not and so they are already locked down. But don’t think that the government is not going to try that shit here. It is just a matter of time. There is already a curfew in Puerto Rico. Our turn is coming.

 

While Poverty Soars, Trillions Spent On Wars In Iraq And Afghanistan Wasted While The Amerikkkan People Are Lied To

Millions of Americans know poverty only too well and yet there are, presumably, states where poverty is more problematic than others. I am quite sure that many would beg to differ.

15 states where poverty is worse than you might think

Developed in 1963, the official poverty rate is based on pre-tax income thresholds related to the cost of a minimum food diet and the number of individuals who depend on that income.
That is unbelievable! The ‘official poverty’ rate based on pre-tax? What the hell??!!! After deductions is what tells the true story, not some before taxes bullshit. None of my paychecks have ever looked good before or after taxes and other deductions and what was there to show for those taxes? Wars! Wars and more wars!
And so we come to this!

Confidential documents reveal U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan

Senior U.S. officials failed to tell the truth about the war in Afghanistan throughout the 18-year campaign, making rosy pronouncements they knew to be false and hiding unmistakable evidence the war had become unwinnable.

“We were devoid of a fundamental understanding of Afghanistan — we didn’t know what we were doing,” Douglas Lute, a three-star Army general who served as the White House’s Afghan war czar during the Bush and Obama administrations, told government interviewers in 2015. He added: “What are we trying to do here? We didn’t have the foggiest notion of what we were undertaking.”

What was the pretext for the war in Afghanistan?

The United States invasion of Afghanistan occurred after the September 11 attacks in late 2001, supported by close US allies. The conflict is also known as the US war in Afghanistan. Its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda, and to deny it a safe base of operations in Afghanistan by removing the Taliban from power.

Again, America cannot win a war! It does not matter how much military equipment is sent to a warzone, the fact should be clear to ALL by now, that America’s military ain’t shit! And if you don’t believe that, then keep reading.

“If the American people knew the magnitude of this dysfunction . . . 2,400 lives lost,” Lute added, blaming the deaths of U.S. military personnel on bureaucratic breakdowns among Congress, the Pentagon and the State Department. “Who will say this was in vain?”

Since 2001, more than 775,000 U.S. troops have deployed to Afghanistan, many repeatedly. Of those, 2,300 died there and 20,589 were wounded in action, according to Defense Department figures.

“If the American people knew of the magnitude of this dysfunction…2,400 lives lost.” And for what???!!!

The sad part is that Americans are so far removed from wars that we just don’t care. We don’t care that supposedly, healthy specimens of individuals were suited up and sent overseas to fight who or whom and how and why? No one had a clue. And it was most definitely in vain that over 2,400 lost their lives and my guess would be that the numbers are even higher since it is quite obvious that we cannot believe one lying word out of the mouths of our politicians aka warmongers and war hawks and those would include BARACK OBAMA, GEORGE W. BUSH, GEORGE H.W. BUSH and the current reigning lunatic-in-chief, DONALD TRUMP.

Thousands upon thousands of Americans who suited up and who were sent to war zones, made it back and are now wounded and are trying to receive the dubious services of the Veterans Administration and we all know that ANY services received from the Veterans Administration is a joke; just a not so very funny joke since it has been reported that those wounded soldiers who made it back from overseas deployment and who had damn near lost their minds and were suicidal were put on hold by the Veterans Administration when they called seeking help.

“VA Suicide Hotline! Hold Please!”

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

In February, an Inspector General investigation revealed that some of the in-coming calls early last year had rolled over to back-up centers and gone to voicemail.

And surprise! Surprise! The original article was taken down and cannot be found online. Go figure! Can’t have the dirty secrets bandied about that America couldn’t give two flying turds about those whom we absentmindedly “Thank for their service.” What the hell does that do for someone who supposedly “put their life on the line” for this worthless ass shithole? Can it feed them? Can it house them? Can it give them the medical/psychological care they need? Can it pay their fucking bills?

But to know that it was ALL for nothing is what the troops who were sent over to Afghanistan are saying. There was no plan. There was no blueprint. There was no exit strategy. We were fed bald-faced lies by ALL presidents that had anything to do with the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and so that also means that whatever we have been told about Libya, Syria, Yemen are also lies, lies, lies and damn lies! Trump even supposedly dropped the MOAB(Mother of all bombs) in Afghanistan and what the fuck did that do? Not a goddamn thing but kill two Afghan camel herders and take money from social programs that are sorely needed seeing as how we are experiencing poverty that’s worse than what was experienced during the first Great Depression because make no mistake, we are in a Worse Depression what with the emergence of Third World diseases in this so-called ‘First World’ nation whereas abject poverty and opulence sit side by side, where tent cities are right in the midst of new construction for luxury high rise condos in Los Angeles, but over in Las Vegas, the homeless are living in tunnels. Coming into Chicago, all you see are tents lined up; endless rows of tents. The same in Baltimore and in any and every city in Amerikkka.

George W. Bush, Barack Obama and Donald Trump — and their military commanders have been unable to deliver on their promises to prevail in Afghanistan. U.S. officials acknowledged that their warfighting strategies were fatally flawed and that Washington wasted enormous sums of money trying to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation. 

What? Wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” So that they could what? Open a Starbucks? Open a Walmart? Open a Popeye’s Chicken shack? Open a Target? Are they fucking serious? This shithole is collapsing what with an infrastructure that is so damn old that bridges are collapsing, pipes that run water to homes are in pieces. Sinkholes are swallowing up blocks of cars. Entire cities look like war zones. Just go to damn near every state and you’ll find rows of abandoned, falling down buildings, downtown areas that have been abandoned; just row upon row of dilapidated buildings and those assholes wanted “to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation?” The Amerikkkan people are stupid as hell. There you sit with your dumb, fat ass glued to a chair while staring down at a phone that is your whole life while your paycheck is being deducted for shit because “attempting to remake Afghanistan into a modern nation” is not why we are paying taxes. That is not why we have payroll deductions. And yet, all we hear from so-called politicians is that we have no fucking money to help our own citizens who are sitting all up in tents trying to cure their typhus and hookworm. Seriously??!!! What.the.fuck.

“What did we get for this $1 trillion effort? Was it worth $1 trillion?” Jeffrey Eggers, a retired Navy SEAL and White House staffer for Bush and Obama, told government interviewers. He added, “After the killing of Osama bin Laden, I said that Osama was probably laughing in his watery grave considering how much we have spent on Afghanistan.”

Yeah! What did we get for over $1 trillion? And we cannot even believe the bullshit that the U.S. government put out about Osama bin Laden since I read that the man had long since died from kidney failure long before Seal Team 6 arrived on the scene. If Osama bin Laden was deep sixed, then I’ve got a bridge for sale in London.

Keep believing the bullshit! Keep buying the lies and you will continue to look around for somewhere to put up a tent and then find yourself locked up thanks to vagrancy laws being put on the books in every city in this fucking shithole because they got nothing but wars and wars and they don’t even have a clue why the fuck there is a war and what to do in a war or how to exit a war of choice. If veterans cannot even get housed and are dying on the streets, what the hell do you think is going to happen to the rest of us? But go right ahead with your head glued to that phone. I hope your tent comes with a USB port and some electricity. Otherwise, the jail has electricity, but you won’t get to keep your phone while you’re cooling your heels in there after having been swept up in a homeless tent city raid.

Meanwhile, your government has some more lies to tell you about why we are at war in Afghanistan and why U.S. troops are still over in Iraq. By all means, keep believing the shit they spout because you love being lied to.

And so I will leave you with a little poem I wrote for the wannabe soldiers.

War Is Always Such A Blessing!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I don’t know why I wrote that poem because you useless, brain dead Amerikkkans will NEVER take what I wrote to heart! More’s the pity and I pity the world!

 

Youtubers Are Going Crazy Over New Youtube Rules Coming Out In 2020 Thanks To A Hefty FTC Fine Against Google/Youtube

Apparently, there was some sort of law on the books, COPPA, that was being ignored by Google, the owner of Youtube.

Google to pay $170 million for violating kids’ privacy on YouTube

Google will pay a record $170 million fine to settle a lawsuit filed by federal and state authorities that charged the internet giant with violating children’s privacy on YouTube, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) said Wednesday.

The settlement requires Google and YouTube to pay $136 million to the FTC and $34 million to New York state for violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, or COPPA, by collecting personal information from children without their parents’ consent.

Kid influencers: Companies make millions while laws protecting children fail to keep up
Amazon’s Echo Dot Kids puts kids at risk, complaint alleges
New program teaches kids how to protect their privacy online

The FTC and the New York attorney general alleged in a complaint that YouTube gathered children’s personal information by using “cookies,” or personal identifiers, that track users online. According to the suit, YouTube earned millions of dollars by using the information to deliver targeted ads to kids.

Also, it has been stated that the FTC will also fine individual Youtubers for each and every single video that they post that is in violation of COPPA, over $42,000. Ouch!

Hundreds of thousands if not millions of people have taken to Youtube to earn a living. If anyone can remember, I posted a blog about multiple Youtubers making videos of themselves eating copious amounts of food for a living and they also encouraged their children to participate. I wonder what is going to happen to those content creators. But I do know one thing, there are many Youtubers whose panties are in a bunch thanks to the fact that Google completely ignored COPPA for years and now that the FTC has caught up with them thanks in part to child advocacy groups, the fur is about to fly starting in January 2020 as the new rules will apply.

People, seriously! Did you honestly think that the gravy train was going to never come to a halt? People had been asking me to start a Youtube channel and speak about the issues on a Youtube channel that I have blogged about. Well, I knew better and that is why I never even thought to start a Youtube channel because I don’t live in the moment. I’m a space woman. I see waaaaaay down the goddamn road and I saw this shit coming. Hell! If people weren’t so dumbed down and stupid, it was right there in front of us all, but because most of us have our heads down, staring at a smartphone and most likely watching a Youtube video, they couldn’t see the forest or the trees.

How could ANY of you think that this technology that we have been encouraged to embrace would be for our benefit? Would better our lives? People have been encouraged not to greater heights of achievements in helping humanity, but have been encouraged to act like jackasses, fools, gluttons, game idiots and assholes. And if anyone says that thanks to Youtube, videos surfaced showcasing outright murders of American descendants of slaves has helped American descendants of slaves, then how so? Because even with video evidence of Eric Garner getting the life choked out of him, what was the outcome of that? Nothing. What happened with evidence of Mike Brown lying in the streets like a dog for hours with not even a sheet to cover him after having been shot dead by a KKKop? Nothing. What happened after video evidence of multiple whites calling the KKKops on American descendants of slaves for barbecuing, selling bottled water, swimming in a pool, doing their job of checking homes for fire code violations, sitting inside a Starbucks and the list is endless? Video evidence of this shit does not matter. It never will. Whites know what the hell they do to us and them seeing video proof of other whites doing the same thing, does not a damn thing. It has changed NOTHING. So who the fuck needs Youtube? Yes, people were making their little coins on Youtube, but as we ALL know, nothing stays the same. The only thing constant is change, so have a backup plan for the backup plan or we’re screwed. And though many of us are trying to ignore the fact, the vast majority of us are indeed, screwed.

I have not been blogging because, once again, I have gone all across America trying to find some other place to live and I am right back, once again, at square one. The shit I’ve seen would curl your toes. I even spent a night in a homeless shelter to see if my suspicions about those shelters was still on point and, yes indeed, they are.

I was in Minnesota and spent a night at The Salvation Army Harbor Light Center
1010 Currie Ave N
Minneapolis, MN 55403
(612) 767-3100

This is what I was supposed to read and I pretended to not understand and so I was given this paper by Salvation Army staff.

This is the back of that.

All ‘guests’ must sign this form.

And if you go to the link, it sounds like the homeless hit pay dirt. Not so fast. The website states that there is a hot meal served. Nope. There was no hot meal served. The site states that this is a place to “begin the healing process.” Nope! When I saw the prison like cot that was supposed to be my bed for the night, I balked. I’m like, “Where is the disinfectant?” None was available. The ‘mattress’ was not even an inch thick. It was clearly older than the ‘Dead Sea Scrolls’ and underneath it was steel. I gingerly sat down on the thing and my legs started screaming because the steel edges of that thing was biting into my legs. I had to get up and sit in my walker. I sat like that for hours until I was so tired, I decided to try and lie down on that ‘thing’. When I tell you that my body hurt everywhere from being on something so hard, it should have been illegal, I am SO fucking not kidding. By the time, I struggled to get up, the cops were coming in the room, bringing in a homeless woman who had been riding the light rail. And in the room, there was four bunk ‘beds’ and so eight people to a room. I saw young and old, Black and white and one Hispanic. I smelled odors that I’d never smelled before. I cannot post pictures because I don’t want the nice ladies who were in my room to be ogled over, but I am telling you if you don’t believe me, I dare you to go, undercover, into one of those so-called ‘christian’ otherwise known as faith-based homeless shelters and tell me that what you found was so very different and better than what I found. The next morning, my cousin came to get me and he burst out laughing because he said that never had he seen bags like those underneath my eyes. He said the bags underneath my eyes were touching my toes. I told him that the women in the shelter told me that clearly I was not cut out for living like that and wondered what I was going to do. I then came clean to them and told them that I had a home, but I couldn’t stand where I was living and was trying to see if I could tough things out and live rough if I had to. They told me to get on the fastest thing smoking back to where I came from and that is exactly what I did. I traded my apartment for a hotel room and then traded my hotel room for a homeless shelter and I am telling you that I now have much more of an appreciation for those who can live rough because I’m telling you, it ain’t easy. It ain’t easy at all.

One Black lady told me that she had been in that homeless shelter for a year. I was stunned, STUNNED, I say because I could not make it to night two. She told me that she thought that she was finally going to get an apartment because a social worker had taken her to view an apartment the day before. I told her how happy I was for her and that I sincerely hope that she gets out of there. The next morning, on the loudspeaker, we were told to start packing up to leave at 8:55a.m. I saw multiple women with walkers slowing heading down the hall towards the elevator. Also, one had a leg that was obviously mutilated and it was curved outward and she was struggling to walk. I could not believe that they were putting her out of the shelter for the day to walk around like that. But the other ladies in the same room as myself had told me that it matters not what condition you are in, you are put out. And that the only way that you can stay is to get a slot on the fourth floor. We were on the 3rd floor.

The fourth floor is for those who have an income and who don’t have a problem when the Salvation Army takes 30% of their income and in exchange for really, no better conditions. The women just get to come and go as they please until curfew which I believe is at 8:00pm. They get three meals a day, but they are still sleeping eight to a room on a cot with the same type of ‘mattress’ that I had and they must also use communal bathrooms. There was one bathroom for one entire hallway and I lost count of the rooms along that hallway. There were two showers inside the bathroom with just a filthy curtain over the opening of each. One woman was washing her clothing in one of the sinks even though there were two washers and two dryers in a different area. She had no money to spend on the washers and dryers. The next time you want to put some money into those red kettles outside of Walmart and grocery stores and department stores, re-read this blog because that money is not going into helping the homeless. But don’t take my word for it. Go to one of those Salvation Army homeless shelters in a town near you, that’ll make a believer out of you!

Those places are foul as hell and are worse than prisons. And it’s not just drug addicts and drunks who are homeless. I spoke with a woman who had retired from the Minnesota school system, had a pension and was receiving Social Security and she was still homeless because senior communities claim that she was making $400 over what she could to get housed. Of course she was an American descendant of slaves and so that explains the TRUE and REAL reason why she was sitting all up in a homeless shelter. Whites will make up any excuse to keep American descendants of slaves out on the streets. That poor woman was actually saving up money so that she could afford a hotel room for a week over the holidays so that she could finally have a bathroom to herself and a decent bed. When I left that homeless shelter, I felt two inches tall because I had not been thankful for the fact that though I hate where I live, I had a home to go to and a bed that was not like that in the homeless shelter which was worse than what you’d find inside a prison hell.

And so while those who have been playing games and eating like there was no tomorrow on Youtube for a living and who are now screeching and wailing that the shit’s about to come to an abrupt end, there are people who have already bottomed out and so if you are about to bottom out when Youtube and the FTC demonitizes your channels and close you down, it will be your own fault because you refused to look up to see where you were headed, into homelessness and foul ass so-called ‘faith based’ homeless shelters. The future is now. The future is dark. And we are all fucked!

I don’t think this guy would make it in a homeless shelter. He looks too soft by far. But there he is bemoaning the fact that Youtube is on its way out and Youtube is his source of income.

And here are more who are going to be impacted.

I’d love to know what these ‘professional mukbangers’ are going to do when Youtube becomes defunct.

There are bunches of them.

Youtubers, you have until January 2020 to figure it out! That’s not that far away. Enjoy the holidays!

America Has An Immigration Problem And That Means That African Tree Climbers And Mexican Taco Crunchers Need To Go! Period.

And no, I am not about to be politically correct.

When I lived in Minnesota, there were so many American descendants of slaves who were poor and homeless and they had no homes because guess who the whites housed first? Those pus head Somalis, that’s who. They flew those Somalis over here and somehow, magically, Somalis now own two malls, health care facilities that cater exclusively to them, they own butcher shops that sell that ‘halal’ meat that they claim is blessed or some such goddamn nonsense, they own restaurants that cater to them and only to them because they treat American descendants of slaves like shit and they were even refusing to pick up blind people at the airport because Somalis believe that dogs are demons and since you can’t find a a white man driving a cab because ALL the cab drivers are African, the poor blind people were left at the airport. As if that wasn’t bad enough, Target Corporation hired them by the ton to work in their downtown Minneapolis location and those pus head Somalis refused to ring up bacon because they said that “handling pork products goes against their religion.” So what the hell are they over here for if everything over here goes against their fucking religion and we fucking have to bend over backwards to accommodate them? And why are whites screeching and wailing about immigration when it is whites who are responsible for flying those tree climbing pus head, bush bunny motherfuckers over here in the first goddamn place? Those Somalis would not be here if some whites had not gone over to Somalia and dragged their damn asses over here. The whites gave them vehicles, gave them top notch homes, are feeding them, are giving them free medical care AND they don’t have to pay taxes. Nice setup if you can get it. ALL ON OUR TAX DOLLARS! And what did the Somalis do in return? Tried to join ISIS and yet I’ve got to be damn near strip searched and/or radiated BEFORE I can board a plane because, American citizen that I am, I am treated as though I am a terrorist when America is happily flying terrorists over here. That shit does not make any goddamn sense! Those ungrateful ingrates come over here and are given free every damn thing and then turn right around and become terrorists just attempting to send a bomb up our ass in gratitude. That’ll show us!

And so Black folks, how many of you have got a setup so good? Not a one of us. But go to Minnesota and see how wonderful the life of a Somali mother fucker is and while you’re at it, shop at Cub Foods and look up at the grocery aisle signs and you will see that on one side, the sign is in English and on the other side, the sign is in Spanish. Do you seriously think that you can go to Honduras or Guatemala and find that shit? Yeah! Take your ass to Bacalar or Izamel or Taxco or Puebla or Malinalo and try and find some signs in English. Good luck with that shit! Only in goddamn America!

On Lake Street in Minneapolis, the only reason the Kmart is still open is because it is almost exclusively patronized by the Mexicans and most of them are illegal and the Star Tribune owners got pissed off over the fact that cops were finding illegals all over that Kmart and was calling ICE on their asses. The cops who were trying to do their job of getting rid of illegals were told to “stand down” by the City of Minneapolis. In fact, one of those re-fried beans eating, Guacamole selling Mexican asswipes came up to me in the Kmart trying to hand me a voucher that he had received to get him a new pair of pointed toed boots. I had to cuss his damn ass out because my name was not Fernando Rodriguez and I wasn’t looking to buy a voucher off of some goddamn Mexican piece of filthy shit! And the whites are hiring those illegals up there, left and right and they know they’re illegals. And so if Trump was serious about deporting those illegal motherfuckers, he would have had ICE descend on Minnesota. They’re all up in Chipotle. There is even a section of Minneapolis known as “Little Mexico” because there are nothing but Mexican shops set up, complete with hair salons, Mexican restaurants and check cashing stores that cater to those Mexicans sending cash back to Mexico.

In Minnesota, if your ass crawled over here from Vietnam or Russia or Bangladesh or Timbuktu, you will be provided with free interpreters. You will be given free health care, free housing, free food, free cars, free clothing, free furniture and hell, every damn thing is free for your immigrant ass! Those of us who have paid taxes in this fucking shithole??!!! Not so goddamn fast! You see, we got nothing coming to us because we have got to pay for ALL the free shit that you’re ENTITLED to. So to everyone who is all up in some poor schmuck’s grill about Social Security and Medicare being ‘entitlement programs’, shut the fuck up! Those of us who were fucking born in this country have been and are paying our dues and you’re goddamn right, we should get Social Security and Medicare because we’ve fucking paid into those programs. Start screeching and yelling about ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS that are for the express purpose of aiding those who have dragged their asses over here and are getting ENTITLEMENTS without ever having paid a dime in taxes, that’s what you fucking concentrate on!

When I moved to Minnesota and went to The Department of Public Safety to get a Minnesota Driver’s License, I had to produce a valid driver’s license from another state, my birth certificate, my social security card and to prove why my name did not match the name on my birth certificate, I included a copy of my divorce decree. And while I was standing there waiting for the customer service rep to look over my credentials, I could not help but overhear what was going on beside me. There were two women standing at the next station and one was saying to customer service that she was acting as interpreter for the woman who was from Vietnam and who did not speak English. The customer service rep stated that her papers appeared in order and so take her to the exam area where she will then be allowed to take the written test to drive in Vietnamese. Then, my attention is drawn back to the service rep that is helping me and I’m hearing, “We cannot accept a copy of your divorce decree. We need a certified copy of your marriage certificate to prove your name change.” I am stunned, STUNNED, I say. I then explain that my divorce decree has my married name on it which also has the same name as my driver’s license from another state and my Social Security card also has the same name on it. “That is insufficient, “ the rep told me. “We need a certified copy of your marriage certificate. Then you can come back and present that document along with what you have here and then you may take the written exam.”

Seriously???!!! This foreigner walks in and immediately gets to take the written driving exam in Vietnamese while I’ve got to contact the state I got married in and that issued my marriage certificate, pay to have it certified and mailed to me and then and only then, can I go back in an attempt to get my driver’s license in another state of the country that I was born in??!! For the love of !!!! I already had a valid driver’s license and yet someone can come over here from Vietnam, Russia, Belarus, Sweden, Germany, Greece, Poland, Turkey and even Albania and take a test to drive on our roads in their language while those of us who were born here and speak the King’s English, albeit with a southern accent, are sent through hoops, left and right. How many goddamn road signs do you see that are in Russian, Vietnamese, Laotian, Korean, Arabic, Armenian, Cambodian, Chinese, Czech, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Polish and the goddamn list is endless. But there I stood, speaking perfect English with a certified birth certificate, a Social Security card, a valid driver’s license from another state and a divorce decree and I had to leave without taking the exam in ENGLISH!

When I went back after having received the certified copy of my marriage certificate, I was standing next to a man from Somalia and he was asking the agent if he could take the written exam again. The agent responded, “You have taken the test 5 times and failed it. You cannot retake it again today. Study more and come back tomorrow.” Again, I was stunned because he was handing him a book with some crazy looking language on it and of course it turned out to be Somali because you see Minnesota gives the written portion of the driving test in English, Hmong, Russian, Somali, Spanish and Vietnamese. Yeah! Our tax dollars at work while the true citizens of this country always get the shaft especially if you happen to be a descendant of slaves.

Oh, and it gets worse, not only do I take the 32 question exam, I get every question right and the Somali dude is still standing there arguing with the agent while I have to stand and wait until he finishes cussing him out in English and in Somali.

So don’t anyone tell me that foreigners have it hard here because I will call you, “A fucking liar!” They have it better than American descendants of slaves and that is for damn sure. And while you’re at it, take a look at the list of states and what languages they give the written driving exam in, you’ll fucking be shocked or maybe, you won’t. Here’s a sneak preview.

MASSACHUSETTS: (25) Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Cambodian, Chinese, Czech, English, Farsi, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Polish, Portuguese, Rumanian, Russian, Spanish, Turkish, Vietnamese.

MICHIGAN: (13) Albanian, Arabic, Chinese, English, Greek, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Vietnamese.

KENTUCKY: 23) Albanian, Arabic, Bosnian, Cambodian, Chinese, Croatian, English, Farsi, French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Laotian, Persian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Thai, Turkish, Vietnamese.

And so don’t even think that Donald Trump is really trying to do a damn thing about the immigration issue. He has not sent any of those foreigners back from where they came and the whites are screeching and hollering in St. Cloud, Minnesota because the Somalis are overtaking that city. Since the Somalis have taken over ALL the affordable housing units in Minneapolis, the whites have spread them far and wide and into St. Cloud, but those racist whites in St. Cloud are having none of it. And City Pages did an article about what the poor, poor Somalis are having to go through in white ass St. Cloud, MN. Here’s an idea, if they are having that bad of a time, the same plane that brought their asses over here, can return them back to Somaliland, quick, fast and in a goddamn hurry. Those tree climbers can take their shoes off and climb right back up in those trees and live happily ever after. And everybody’s happy. But no! Pawn those pus head motherfuckers off on everybody else and then scream “Racism!” when people take offense to that shit. Well, I’m screaming “Preferential Treatment” since American descendants of slaves can only dream of the life that’s GIVEN to those pus head Somalis, Taco Crunching Mexicans and even the goddamn Russians and Vietnamese, Japanese, Chinese, Polish, Romanian, Cambodian, Portuguese, Italians, Turks and any damn body else that wants to crawl and slither over here and then live off my tax dollars while I’m sitting somewhere, cross-eyed, homeless and with hookworm dripping out my ass as is the case with many American descendants of slaves on Skid Row in California. They are fucking refugees in their own goddamn country. Where is the help for them? Where are the programs to get them off Skid Row and into some free housing; complete with health care, food, clothing and some more shit??!!! Where??!!! All up in Somaliland over here in Minnesota. All up in Little Mexico over here in Baltimore and in Minnesota and all over California and every damn city in every damn state in America, that’s fucking where! We would have money for the needs of TRUE American citizens if not for the fact that we take care of freeloading foreigners first and then there’s nothing left for those who at one point in time, did indeed, pay taxes in this fucking shithole! Where are our fucking priorities??!!! With goddamn foreigners, that’s where! I am sick and tired of this damn shit! Trump needs to put up or shut up!

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!

While The Americans Are Dealing With An Orchestrated Government Shutdown, The Trump Administration Has Staged A Coup In Venezuela

Once again, Washington has installed another of its puppet dictators, this time in Venezuela, which is why Washington orchestrated this latest government shutdown that induced mass hysteria in the Amerikkkan people, just as it was designed to do. Amerikkkans obediently followed the ‘government shutdown bouncing ball’ which was orchestrated in order to cause the most harm by ensuring that federal workers lose their income while at the same time causing those who rely on federal programs to fear the loss of housing and food assistance even as Washington intends to allow multinational corporations to steal and abscond with everything in Venezuela that is not nailed down, especially its oil, gas and gold since Washington’s puppet dictator will allow Washington to dictate his every move. The U.S. does not intend to collapse without leaving a lasting impression.

 

Maduro claimed an attempted coup backed by the “gringo empire” was under way and urged supporters – and crucially the armed forces – to resist it “at all costs”.

“We are defending the right to the very existence of our Bolivarian Republic,” Maduro said, accusing his foes of trying to steal Venezuela’s oil, gas and gold: “They intend to govern Venezuela from Washington. Do you want a puppet government controlled by Washington?”
 
 

Nicolás Maduro, the duly elected president of Venezuela has given U.S. diplomats 72 hours to leave Venezuela. The Trump Administration’s response was to ignore the demand claiming that Maduro has been replaced by Juan Guaido, self-proclaimed president of Venezuela and CIA installed puppet. Quick to follow Washington’s recognition of Juan Guaido as the new president of Venezuela were Canada, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Argentina, Paraguay and Costa Rica. Brazil’s new far right president, Jair Bolsonaro, likewise followed suit since he is also just another Washington puppet.

Maduro is absolutely right in that this is indeed, “an attempted coup backed by the ‘gringo empire’.” And Russia has warned the Trump Administration against using military action in Venezuela to force Nicolas Maduro to step down and allow Washington’s puppet to become the next president of Venezuela.

 

We warn against this,” Russia’s deputy foreign minister, Sergei Ryabkov, said in an interview with International Affairs magazine, a Russian media outlet. “We believe that this would be a catastrophic scenario that would shake the foundations of the development model we see in the Latin American region.”

Russia has supported Maduro’s government politically and militarily. The Kremlin dispatched two Russian bombers to Venezuela last month, a provocative move that raised red flags in Washington.
 
 

Once again, the Russians are trying to stop yet another blatant takeover by Washington of a sovereign state. And the Russians are the problem? The Trump Administration has stated that “all options are on the table,” including sanctions and military action. What has happened when the U.S. has used the military to do its dirty work?

 

David Smilde, a Venezuela expert from the Washington Office on Latin America advocacy group said: “Look at Somalia, look at Afghanistan, look at Iraq: all of those cases were supposed to be short military actions and actually what they do is end up generating enormous costs in terms of loss of life and infrastructure.”

 
 

But Washington does not care about loss of life or infrastructure since our tax dollars are then used to rebuild countries that the U.S. has bombed to smithereens and the people who are killed are of no consequence just as we are not, case in point is Iraq. The U.S. military destroyed Iraq and now Americans are footing the bill for the rebuilding of that country even as the U.S. government is ‘shutdown’. The U.S. had no business sending the military into Afghanistan and yet our tax dollars are being used to train Afghan forces to attack the Taliban while U.S. military forces are protecting Afghan opium in order to send shipments back to the U.S. and straight into the veins of Amerikkkans while at the same time claiming a “war on drugs.”

Every single time the U.S. sets its sights on another country, the people of that country suffer for it as does its infrastructure and those of us in the US suffer as well because we are told that there is no money and yet, somehow and mysteriously, money can always be found to buy more missiles and drones to attack countries that have done nothing to warrant the attack. And yet, the Trump Administration is yelling and screeching and grandstanding about the need to build a wall to keep those south of the border from coming to the U.S. when in fact, the Trump Administration’s policies are making life so miserable for those people, they are leaving their devastated countries and attempting to cross the border into the U.S., only to be met with tear gas and rubber bullets. The policies of the U.S. government has caused those people to have to flee their homes and now the U.S. wants to build a wall to keep out the results of policies it put into play to force people to run for their lives? That is insanity!

Iraq’s officials have stated that they want the U.S. out of their country. Libya is still in flames. Somalia, likewise. Afghanistan, the same. Yemen, indeed! And the list is endless. This is ALL because the ‘American empire’ is collapsing and intends to take as many countries down with it as it descends. It is like a gigantic snake that has had its head chopped off, but its tail is still thrashing about, destroying everything it strikes. This bitch, Amerikkka, even in its death throes is still dangerous and the only hope for other countries to make it through to the last thrash of this dying empire is Russia, China and Iran. Russia most definitely understands this since they have already sent military bombers to Venezuela, just as they had to with Syria because if not for the Russians, Syria would have a Washington installed puppet dictator. Maybe Russia is finally understanding what should have been understood hundreds of years ago in that no one can trust Amerikkkans. That ship should have long since sailed. Look at how this country treats its own citizens. Throws them under the bus at every opportunity even to the point of impoverishing those who work FOR the government. How can any Amerikkkan citizen still believe that the U.S. government gives a damn about their safety when TSA federal workers earn a measly $30,000 and have not been paid in over 30 days and come Friday, will miss a second paycheck? Homeland Security federal workers are not being paid and what was that agency set up to do? Keep US safe from so-called terrorists. The terrorists are sitting up on your tax dollars and strutting about the halls of congress and are inside the White House causing you much grief, anguish and hand-wringing since you cannot pay your bills, are about to lose your housing, are about to see your credit score take a nosedive, are about to lose your car and empty your pantry. The U.S. government is not some great entity that ever stood for a belief in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness because the average Amerikkkan is anything but happy.

Are you happy to be broke and destitute and in debt? Are you happy to live paycheck to paycheck? Are you happy about the fact that the government can just shutdown at any time and force you to work without pay over a trumped up excuse for the shutdown? Are you happy to see politicians that they claim you elect, act like children on the playground while your lives are spiraling down, out of control? Do you think the homeless are happy to be living on the streets? Do you think they are happy to have worms falling out of their asshole since hookworm has made a comeback which until now was only found in third world countries? Do you think they are happy battling typhus and hepatitis A,B and C? Do you think children are happy to go to bed at night with their stomachs growling? Do you think those people who just got shot dead in a bank in Florida were happy when those bullets pierced their flesh? Who the hell is happy in this shithole? Who? When federal workers are reporting that they are living paycheck to paycheck, how do you think others are living? Are you happy since you are sitting somewhere likely to blow yourself up with your meth lab? Are you happy that in order to make it through the day, you have to shoot up some heroin that your own government made possible for you to obtain since your government has instructed the military to guard some poppy plants in Afghanistan in order to send them here to feed your addictions since you are just too happy for words? Do you think Amerikkka’s 2.5 million prisoners are happy since many of them were imprisoned on bullshit drug charges while the U.S. government is the biggest drug cartel in the world? Yeah, we’re all fucking happy. Broke, drunk, high, stupid and happy, that’s US!

Stop following the bouncing ball. Look at where they don’t want you to look. When they are focusing your attention on a specific action orchestrated by them such as a government shutdown, then you can best believe that some foul ass shit is going down elsewhere. There is no U.S. media coverage of what the Trump Administration has been initiating in Venezuela. If they are so worried about people from south of the border coming to the U.S. then why are they hell bent on doing everything that would increase the numbers of those attempting to cross the border? It is all smoke and mirrors, people! Smoke and mirrors. Every single news article that I have read has been all about bad news. Verizon is laying off a percentage of its workforce. Apple is laying off people. Despite announcements of increased holiday spending, stores are still announcing closures. J.C. Penney has announced that it may have to follow in Sears’ footsteps. And as this empire collapses, Wall Street will be the last to go down. They are the musicians on this Titanic, furiously intent on ignoring the sinking ship until they are underwater. But sink, they will. Again, it’s ALL smoke and mirrors, people, smoke and mirrors and ‘follow the bouncing ball’ as they fuck up another country by installing a puppet dictator while ignoring the legitimate one. Amerikkka has been in the business of regime change for too damn long and it will not cease until this empire goes the route of Rome and we are definitely headed there. Just take a look around you. I see no ‘amber waves of grain.’ And if you see any, believe me, those waves of grain contain a known carcinogen, glyphosate. And you can thank your government for that as well. If you have not gotten a clue yet, then I don’t know what there is to say about you!

I’ll leave you with a little poem I wrote a few years ago. It seems an apt ending.

Armageddon’s Child Is Born!

The mirrors all are cracking,
and the smoke is blowing away.
You can see the whole thing clearly.
Another crash, they can’t delay.

Follow the Russian ruble.
Focus your attention on Iraq.
They created another terrorist.
And now Ebola’s coming back.

Don’t look beneath the table.
The gamblers all are dead.
The cracking of their bones,
means they have no betting spread.

This show is over folks.
And as the Ball comes to an end,
the rotund lady sings.
And there’s no money left to lend.

The dancers writhe in agony.
Their frenzied pomp is gone.
And the badly written script,
only elicits another yawn.

The bull is now a bear.
And as I look across the sea,
another bear just shakes his head,
over America’s stupidity.

Say “Farewell” to all you know.
The stars and stripes are torn.
As they launch the killing drones,
Armageddon’s child is born.

In case you forgot, they just recently flew an American doctor back to the U.S. They believe he was exposed to Ebola.
