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

 

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

 

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

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

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

 

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

 

 

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

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

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

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.”

Health Care Workers On The Coronavirus Front Lines Say “This System Is Doomed!”

Nurses who are treating coronavirus patients are being advised by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to start using bandanas and scarves as they run out of  masks. And nurses are contracting coronavirus as a result. Capitalism at its finest! So tell me, when the nurses are laid low, who is going to treat coronavirus patients? Donald Trump? Mike Pence? Mitch McConnell?

 

Nothing like ‘good’ news about how capitalism and our government works for the ‘good’ of the people in times of crises, right?

‘This system is doomed’: Doctors, nurses sound off in NBC News Coronavirus study

Many reported being forced to ration or reuse supplies, including surgical and N-95 masks, for fear of running out. Many also said they were facing shortages of basic sanitary supplies, including hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes.

The N95 mask filters out airborne particulates and aerosols, and the Food and Drug Administration advises that neither N-95 masks, nor surgical masks, should be used more than once.

But in response to growing shortages of PPE, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has loosened its guidelines on proper use and reuse of masks. On Thursday, the agency advised that bandanas and scarves could be used by healthcare workers in place of a mask as a last resort.

Bandanas and scarves? The supposedly richest country on the planet has nurses on the front lines of coronavirus crisis using bandanas and scarves to protect themselves from the ravages of coronavirus as they take care of coronavirus patients? Seriously???!!! Capitalism at its finest. Meanwhile, the asswipes that kept this virus hush hush are still trying to protect capitalism and ONLY capitalism at the expense of the Amerikkkan people. Doesn’t this just give you a warm and cozy feeling inside to know that your lord and savior, racist-in-chief, Donald Trump is busy protecting his buddies on Wall Street along with his many ‘businesses’ and that of his family while throwing your asses under the bus; those of you who voted for him, that is? And millions upon millions of racist whites, did indeed, vote for this piece of racist filth that is making sure that this virus rages out-of-control thanks to Trump firing the entire PANDEMIC AGENCY that was put into play by his predecessor and since his predecessor was Barack Obama, well there you go!

Meanwhile, an ER nurse was exposed to coronavirus, has the symptoms, but cannot get tested. Ain’t capitalism grand?

An ER nurse told us she was exposed to the coronavirus and has symptoms but still can’t get tested , and it highlights both America’s crippling inequality and its broken health care system

 

  • Since the coronavirus outbreak reached the US, over a dozen nurses nationwide told Business Insider their hospitals still don’t have a clear process to protect them or their patients.Nurses who have treated coronavirus patients and developed symptoms cannot get tests.One hospital in California told a symptomatic nurse she did not qualify for a coronavirus test, despite coming into direct contact with a positive patient.Testing across the US has been messy and inconsistent due to delays from the federal government in approving and delivering materials.

So Amerikkkans, still feeling all that ‘exceptionalism’ that you bought, hook, line and sinker? How does it feel to finally get what you’ve always wanted? Unrelenting capitalism whereas those YOU elected could care less about you coming down with this virus because if they did, do you think that nurses would have to beg to be tested even AFTER they have come into contact with a coronavirus positive patient? And who the hell knows how many people are walking around with this virus since “testing across the US has been messy and inconsistent due to delays from the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN APPROVING AND DELIVERING MATERIALS?” What great logistics we have here, don’t you think?

Everyone is screeching about what’s going down in Italy and Spain while they’d better be worried about what’s going down in the CAPITALISM STATES OF AMERIKKKA because it doesn’t get any ‘better’ than this and how many of you think this shit is going to get ‘better’ with the stupid shit that’s leading the charge against coronavirus?

And many ‘experts’ claim that the CAPITALISM STATES OF AMERIKKKA is unprepared for this pandemic. What? Naw….who would have thought? The experts are comparing Italy’s health system infrastructure to that of this shithole’s and this shithole’s health system’s infrastructure is coming up appallingly short since in Italy  there are more hospital beds per 1,000 people than the United States–which could signal a lack of preparedness in the US, according to commentary published this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. “Though Italy’s health system is highly regarded and has 3.2 hospital beds per 1,000 people (as compared with 2.8 in the United States), it has been impossible to meet the needs of so many critically ill patients simultaneously,” Dr. Lisa Rosenbaum, a cardiologist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. But the experts are still trying to figure out why Italy’s coronavirus rates are so high. Well keep at it, you’ll eventually figure it out.

Meanwhile, even Russia is doing better than this shithole in mitigating the number of coronavirus cases. In fact, Russia has a handle on their coronavirus cases and the numbers of infected are dwindling daily while the numbers here in the states are accelerating at an even greater pace, but then Russia began to take proactive steps as early as January while this shithole’s leaders were busy trying to attack Iran instead of testing those who were coming to this shithole carrying coronavirus. It is just appalling that in a time of crisis, this shithole was still trying to go to war with Iran simply because Iran’s defenses are low as they battle coronavirus with little to no aid thanks to sanctions put into play against them by this shithole. If there is any consolation to what Iran’s people are dealing with, then it is the fact that this shithole’s population is not faring any better than those in Iran. So to any Iranians out there, at least know that while this shithole was trying to attack and bomb you into last century, these shits over here were about to get bombarded with coronavirus as well, and they have.

And you stupid Amerikkkan shits are sitting somewhere wondering why there is no coordinated response for this virus coming from those who are in charge? Are you serious? They are still trying to wage war and protect CAPITALISM. When will you stupid, racist Amerikkkans ever get it through your thick, brainless skulls that your so-called, ‘leaders’, don’t give a shit about any of us because if they did, wouldn’t it show? But does it? Yes indeed, you ALL know the answer to that and while they try and hash out some trillion dollar stimulus package, your rent is about to become due for next month and yet, you have to sit at home alongside your children since you cannot head to your jobs nor can the kiddies go to daycare because this shithole was concentrating on starting a war against Iran and was not even thinking about implementing coronavirus protocols that could have mitigated its impact on this shithole. You think about that shit while you’re sitting at home listening to some shit that you’ve got Alexa playing to keep you distracted from the reality of how fucked you are, stimulus package or not because that stimulus package is going to aid corporations, not our broke asses.

You wanted CAPITALISM. You got it! How well is that working out for you? Get back to me on that. Rome is burning and I for one, am glad!

And As Rome Did Fall From Grace!

Steeped in melancholia
and adorned in robes of sorrow,
I walk among the wretched.
They will be dead before tomorrow.

Bleached bones lie in the sand,
stripped bare of any flesh
as they prepare to turn to dust
and are blown away like ash.

Alone, I stand and look
upon the dry and barren plains.
And I shrug and walk away
from what used to be fruited plains.

An empire meets its fate
just like in days of old
And as Rome did fall from grace,
America’s future was foretold.

But yet Americans still cannot come to terms with the fact that their Disney vacations have been cut short. This is just how stupid and entitled the WHITE Amerikkkans in this shithole are to sit somewhere and post a video of them acting out a Disney vacation. I just throw my goddamn hands up!

Even as all hell breaks loose, the fun and games MUST continue. Fun and games and fake ass fantasy, that is the essence of Amerikkka. For the love of !!!!!!!

 

 

 

Americans Are Finally Taking Coronavirus Seriously Thanks To Pro Sports Shutting Down

 

Unfortunately, it had to take pro sports shutting down to do it since nothing else was getting it done. The WHO(World Health Organization) announcing that coronavirus was a global pandemic did not get it done, but goddamn it, not being able to go see a pro basketball game? That did it!

Tipsheet: Sports industry begins painful process of shutting down

The NBA has suspended its season. The NHL seems likely to do the same Thursday.MLB will look long and hard and delaying the start of its season after initially moving early Mariners games away from Seattle.The NCAA decided to hold its basketball tournament without fans, following the lead of some conference tournaments. It, too, may decide to just shut it down as the momentum towards social distancing gathers steam.

Uh oh! Fights are going to break out over this! Folks are going to go nuts because they cannot attend a basketball game. Oh the shame of it all. They paid big money for those tickets and now, the GAMES have been called off? What the hell??!!! Too bad this mess wasn’t called off in time to affect the Superbowl.

Americans are the dumbest shits on this planet because in their little, insulated world, nothing touches them; not war, not sanctions, not climate change, nothing. They just get into their GMC trailblazers and SUVs and ride up and down the street thinking about nothing of importance because as long as they can head to a pro sports game, a sports bar and drink until drunk, what’s a little coronavirus? Well dumbasses, it is obviously a big ass deal because now, you’re woke. You can’t attend the next pro basketball game because that shit’s been nixed. Now what are you going to do? Whine like most Americans do? Please do and then take that energy that you would have expended sitting at a basketball game and use it to fight your way around a store, why don’t you? Because that’s next, if it ain’t happening already.

The first US layoffs from the coronavirus are here

At the Port of Los Angeles, 145 drivers have been laid off and others have been sent home without pay as massive ships from China stopped arriving and work dried up. At travel agencies in Atlanta and Los Angeles, several workers lost their jobs as bookings evaporated. Christie Lites, a stage-lighting company in Orlando, laid off more than 100 of its 500 workers nationwide this past week and likely will lay off 150 more, according to chief executive Huntly Christie. Meanwhile a hotel in Seattle is closing an entire department, a former employee said, and as many as 50 people lost their jobs after the South by Southwest festival in Austin got canceled.

Uh oh! The shit is really about to hit the fan now because pretty soon, Walmart, Target and the few remaining malls are going to be empty. Americans who still have money to spend and big gas guzzlers to drive around in to get to those stores are going to be left to do…to do…what? WHINE! Never will there be a thought about those who have long since lost it ALL and have been homeless for decades. Never will there be a thought about those who were already battling a pandemic among the homeless of typhus and hookworm, not to mention diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and a host of other diseases. No one thought in their wildest dreams that something would come along and wake everyone the fuck up from their deep and endless, hypnotic slumber. As long as (white) Americans could attend pro sports games, look down at a smartphone and order shit, drive to the mall or Walmart and Target and know that whatever they want to buy, would be in those stores, all was right in their insulated worlds. Well, not anymore! And it could not happen to a more deserving nation of assholes! FINALLY! This fucking shithole is getting exactly what it deserves.

The poor have been treated like shit forever and no one thought that that shit would be visited on them. Well it is and I for one, am glad, glad I say! If the least of us is hurting and we refuse to open our eyes and see, then the rest of us are going to follow suit and we are! And you can archive this blog to your heart’s content for “I told you so’s,” because I damn well did, especially you whites who believed that your sense of ‘white supremacy’, your white privilege was going to shelter you from any unpleasantness. So tell me, you still believe that shit?! Because it is quite obvious that coronavirus is not respecting YOUR sense of supremacy or your white privilege. How does it feel to realize that you are no better than the person you look at and believe they are beneath you based on the color of their skin? Your white ass is just as much inclined to come down with coronavirus as my Black ass and you can take that to the goddamn bank. The motherfuckers that you drag over here to sit on top of us are doing better than your white filthy asses are doing and you ain’t even looking cross-eyed over that shit. Take a look at this and then tell me how smart you dumbass whites are.

Oh I am not at all surprised by that as it relates to U.S. Black folks, but what should be surprising to you dumb white shits is that you have ALLOWED and ENCOURAGED those Hindu motherfuckers from India to come over here and obtain more wealth than many of you whites have. Even the Japanese and Chinese are doing better than your asses. That just shows how truly insane you dumb fucks are. Oh, it’s a given that you want ANY and EVERYONE to crawl over here and step on us and over us and prosper because you’ve burned our cities and our institutions to the ground. You’ve even bombed our asses and yet those from India and Asia can come over here and live better than many whites live. How whacked is that shit??!!! Yeah! Look at the chart and then tell us how smart you whites are. Look at it. How smart does that make your ass look, when the Hindus and the Asians are more wealthy than many whites are here in this divided states of Amerikkka? Guess who is not applying for student loans to go to colleges and universities? Guess who is not overburdened with student loan debt. Guess who is NOT moving back in with their parents because they’ve got debt out the ass and now, no job thanks to coronavirus coming along and putting paid to THAT shit.

Baiden King lost her job at a bake shop in Omaha on Tuesday because online sales and customer traffic dried up dramatically — especially after the state’s first case of covid-19 was reported nearby. King said her manager told her when she showed up for her shift that morning she had no choice. King made $11 an hour.

“If my job’s laying off people, I can only imagine other employers are as well,” said King, who is preparing to move back in with her parents. “I’m not sure anyone will be hiring.”

Baiden King is moving back home with her parents. Do you think Chung-Ho or Qiquiang or Abnivav Dutta or Chakra Gupta are having to move back in with their parents thanks to getting laid off? If you do, are you really THAT dumb? Well if you’re dumb enough to advance their asses over yours and your children, then that would be a resounding, “YES!”

Meanwhile, fight in stores over toilet tissue, water and hand sanitizer while the Chinese have gotten a handle on coronavirus since their leadership is not dumb and dumber because that’s what we have. Trump and Pence are ill-equipped to deal with this virus that is kicking ass over here. In fact Trump axed the agency that was supposed to deal with pandemics. That is what you dumbass, racist, bigoted and prejudiced whites elected. Now go ahead and re-elect his ass. And when the next pandemic comes along, if there are any of you left standing, you won’t be.There are no massive shipments of test kits. There are no hospitals that have been built in twelve days time to take care of quarantined coronavirus patients. There are no factories up and running to produce what the stupid Amerikkkans are running helter skelter to buy before the last truck has unloaded its cargo. This shit is showing you ugly ass whites up for what you really are, STUPID! Is your pale skin going to keep you from the ravages of coronavirus? Is it going to stop you from having to frantically try to hoard up shit so that you can wipe your ass? Eat? Drink? Even down here in this dead ass burg, you whites have gone nuts! Just look at the shit you’re scrabbling for. It’s almost gone! And no trucks are going to replenish what’s gone because no massive ships are on their way from China, you know, where everything that’s over here is made!

How long before the shit that’s made in China is GONE and you can’t even wipe your ass?

Because remember, they are laying off those who unload shipments from China and you know just as well as I do that not a damn thing is made in the U.S. Everything has to be shipped here from overseas and since China has had to shut its factories, you know what that means, right? You’re going to have to figure out another way to disinfect your homes and wipe your ass! So hop to it! And don’t even bother asking the homeless how they get along, they don’t need any other pandemics, they’ve got enough to contend with. You white, lousy, worthless motherfuckers are on your own. You love guns. See if your guns can disinfect your homes and wipe your asses! HA! I’m loving it!

 

To Protect CAPITALISM, Rick Santelli At CNBC Suggests That EVERYONE Be Given Coronavirus Otherwise Known As COVID-19

 

Whites never fail to amaze me with the shit that comes out of their piehole and if Rick Santelli thinks that everyone should be given coronavirus to stop whites losing billions of dollars on Wall Street, then why hasn’t he lined his depraved ass up at the CDC and demanded to be the first person to be injected with COVID-19 aka coronavirus? Since his clueless ass is old, then maybe he’ll be keeling over in no time flat and there would be one less dumbass white bastard we need worry about.

CNBC’s Rick Santelli suggests giving everyone coronavirus to spare the economy

“Everyone in America should be given the coronavirus so the economic impact of the outbreak can be lessened,” CNBC on-air editor Rick Santelli suggested Thursday.

But what he left unsaid was that such an approach could result in more than 11 million Americans dead.

‘I’m not a doctor … but maybe we’d be just better off if we gave it to everybody.’ — Rick Santelli

Santelli, who is widely credited with helping spark the so-called tea party movement in 2009, made the attention-grabbing COVID-19 comments in a conversation with “The Exchange” anchor Kelly Evans, who asked the volatile, Chicago-based Santelli what the catalyst had been for the recent chaos on Wall Street.

“The catalyst? Just watch your local news. There’s your catalyst,” Santelli said, according to a transcript.

I just cannot make this shit up. Not one word is said about how many people would die not just from coronavirus but as a direct result of hospitals and medical offices overwhelmed to the point whereas even millions more would die because they would not receive the necessary care they need. Ever the thoughtful ones republican assholes are including Donald Trump who at first stated that coronavirus was a figment of the media and the Democrats imagination. He even suggested that the death toll was not accurate in order to downplay the havoc that coronavirus is wreaking not only on the U.S. economy, but also on economies, worldwide. You see, airline executives had a stony-faced meeting with Trump not too long ago because coronavirus is causing people to stop flying despite airlines screeching that they are disinfecting those planes like crazy. That won’t help because everyone is breathing the same air as long as those plane doors are closed and whomever has the virus and sneezes or coughs has exposed everyone on that plane to whatever contagion they are carrying; the same with cruise ships.

And though everyone thought that the summer months would put an end to coronavirus, the World Health Organization says, “Not so fast!”

It’s a “false hope” that COVID-19 will be seasonal and subside in the summer, like the flu, the World Health Organization said Friday.

According to the World Health Organization, this virus is not acting like any seasonal flu or virus that has been seen before and so this virus is not expected to act like previous viruses and so capitalists are foaming at the mouth over what the impact of this virus will have and the fact that no end is in sight, hence why asswipe, ignorant, disgusting troglodytes like Rick Santelli is suggesting that everyone be given coronavirus so that CAPITALISM can start humming right along as though coronavirus never reared its viral head.

This virus is most definitely interrupting business as usual for the whites all across the globe who have been hell bent on plundering and pillaging every resource this planet has to the detriment of said planet, but this planet has had enough of their shit and is fighting back. Earthquakes, volcanoes, floods and other events of the like couldn’t get the job done and so this planet upped the ante. Now you whites figure THIS shit out! Yeah! Go ahead and try giving this shit to everyone on the goddamn planet and see what becomes of YOU and CAPITALISM. Both are going to be nonexistent. So, by all means, give it a try, you clueless, deranged, megalomaniac, scum sucking bottom feeders! I wish you would because your old, tired asses are going to be the first to drop dead along with YOUR fucking capitalism. I’d dearly love to see that happen.

People are getting sick on those petri dishes better known as cruise ships and are having to circle the goddamn ocean while waiting on test results to come back. Dumbasses, tell me, why the hell are you still taking a cruise when you know what has been happening on cruise ships? People in a nursing home are in quarantine because the workers and the patients are infected and entire families are being quarantined off from each other because of this virus and not to mention, I just read that a motel was bought for $4 million by Washington state officials to house coronavirus quarantine patients, the situation is getting so bad. School systems have been closed in Washington state and the University of Washington  is closing due to coronavirus. Mass gatherings are being frowned upon since they have the potential to spread this virus, far and wide, hence why air and sea travel are extremely dangerous. Close quarters and everyone breathing the same air is a breeding ground for this virus and the toll of the sick and dying from this virus is steadily rising, not falling.

So as you can see, the shit is hitting the fan and the only thing republicans and their mouthpieces can think about is the impact coronavirus is having on Wall Street. Ever the thoughtful, conscientious and empathetic humanitarians are the republicans, don’t you think? How do those shameless shits continuously get a microphone shoved in their faces and the public has to listen to their tripe when if it were up to them, we’d ALL be getting injected with coronavirus just to staunch the losses on Wall Street? Never mind the sick and dying, never mind the toll that this is taking on friends and families of the sick and dying. Republicans never have any thought for anyone. Their only objective is to make money and to continuously uphold this capitalist society that only benefits the uber wealthy. Everyone else can just drop dead already in order to preserve CAPITALISM and that is exactly what Rick Santelli of CNBC is advising.

And for those of you who shop on Amazon, Amazon is reporting that one of their workers has contracted coronavirus and so there’s another spread coming. Not to mention, I don’t recall the CDC or WHO commenting on just how long coronavirus can live on nonporous surfaces, do you? Two employees at Microsoft have also come down with coronavirus as well as an employee of Google and this has caused Google to cancel all international travel. Also Facebook is conducting interviews via video conferencing and all of this is having  a devastating impact on the hotel industry as well as on restaurants, taxi and uber drivers. All of this is negatively impacting capitalism and so expect a serious demand that some lab come up with a vaccine, like yesterday, to combat the coronavirus even though an estimate for a vaccine rollout date will likely take twelve to eighteen months. Capitalism cannot wait that long. Place your bets. Capitalism or coronavirus? For many Asians, they lost the bet to coronavirus. You see, even though it has been stated that your ‘Chinese’ food should be okay, what about the cook who just recently returned from China and escaped quarantine and he has a cough? He has spread coronavirus to the delivery driver who is touching your container, bags, etc. Been to your neighborhood Chinese takeout joint recently? Gone overseas to get the ‘real deal’ recently?

Vice President Pence says 21 people on the Grand Princess cruise ship off California coast have tested positive for coronavirus.

The Trump Administration is considering ways to discourage U.S. travelers from taking cruises as part of a broader Trump administration effort to limit the spread of coronavirus.

As I stated above, cruise ships are breeding grounds for coronavirus and is it any wonder seeing as how there have been so many outbreaks of the norovirus, it is become commonplace?

Also, read why the coronavirus could threaten the U.S. economy more than China’s

With shortages of everything from auto parts to generic medicines and production delays in things like iPhones and Diet Coke, a great deal of pain is coming from the closing of Chinese factories. That proliferating damage has central banks and financial analysts talking about a global recession in the coming months.

Coronavirus Kills Capitalism! One can certainly hope!

As You Try And Build Up Your Immune System To Battle The Coronavirus, Walmart Is Trying To Break It Down

With news on ALL fronts that the coronavirus is going to kick our asses, the last thing we need to be putting into our bodies is garbage. We need foods that will boost our immune systems to fight off viruses including the coronavirus, but this just ain’t going to do it.

This is what I took a picture of yesterday when I was assisting one of my clients in her grocery shopping efforts. And for those of you who don’t know, I run a van service that transports people who lack cars to do their shopping and to pick up their children from daycare and I also take them to appointments. Volunteers help me in this endeavor. And the reason why I had to start up this van service is because cab service is extremely limited here.

Now, how can employees at this Walmart NOT see this??!!!

If ALL Walmart employees are THAT blind, then they need to be replaced and new hires take those jobs.

Next!

More rotten bacon for you to purchase and that will weaken your immune system as it attempts to fight off gastrointestinal illnesses, not to mention, coronavirus.

Next!

Oh Jesus, that is gross! AGAIN, how did NO Walmart employee not see this? It was lying right on top in plain sight!

Look at this shit!

EWWWWWWWWW!

As you can see, even the ‘ham steak’ below the middle one is turning.

People, once again, I ask you why on earth are you still somewhere buying this garbage and then sitting somewhere wondering why you’re shitting and puking at the same time? This shit is killing you! The Waltons are not eating this shit! And those people who are your neighbors don’t even care enough about you to get this mess up out of your face! They are telling you, and in no uncertain terms, that you “Can just eat shit!” And that is literally, what you are eating and paying dearly for the dubious ‘pleasure’.

Every single time I go out, I am going to start taking pictures, left and right, in the produce section, the ‘meat’ department and anywhere else I see this shit go down. It won’t shame companies or their employees into doing better, but it will at least give you some idea of what you are up against. The above pictures were taken at the Walmart located on 3227 Old Forest Road, Lynchburg, Virginia 24501 and the store manager’s name is Richard Cunningham and he can be reached at (434)200-9132. Would he feed this garbage to HIS wife and children? Would he shop with HIS wife and children in the Walmart that HE manages since HE has to know that HE is helping Walmart to sell you shit that HE wouldn’t feed himself or his family? And then people have the nerve to wonder why we are being hit with a big ass plague? Look at how people don’t give a damn for what others are paying a fortune for because food is extremely expensive. No one has any money to waste on this damn garbage.

The reason why I am posting this is because of this headline from today’s news.

California patient with unknown origin of coronavirus is in serious condition, officials say

The California patient who tested positive for the coronavirus days after being hospitalized is in serious condition and intubated, California Rep. John Garamendi told CNN’s Erin Burnett. 

The Solano County woman has puzzled health officials, who say they have not been able to trace where she contracted the virus. The patient didn’t have any relevant travel history, exposure to another known patient and wasn’t one of the evacuees repatriated from China, officials said.

“This does appear to be a person who genuinely did acquire their illness in the community,” Solano County Public Health Officer Dr. Bela Matyas said in a news conference Thursday.

The CDC refused to even give the health care professionals any test kits when they requested them for this patient citing that the patient did not fit the criteria for contracting the disease. Oh, we are SO ready for a pandemic! And I am being so damn sarcastic, it ain’t even funny!

The Solano County patient was transferred to UC Davis from a Northern California hospital last Wednesday but wasn’t tested by the CDC until Sunday, after doctors at UC Davis persisted in their request.

Both hospitals said there was no testing initially administered because the patient didn’t fit the existing CDC criteria for coronavirus.

People, this is what we are working with; dumb as all hell assholes with various medical degrees or not! Simply because this patient, who by the way, will most likely die, was not tested for the coronavirus because they had not traveled to a region that was already infested with the coronavirus? Seriously??!! It has already been stated that this virus is LIKE NO OTHER. And so why on earth would you pretend that it is and refuse to test a patient who had the symptoms until the patient is so sick that the patient has to be intubated? And now a second case has been identified meaning that coronavirus is spreading. We are in deep shit!

So do you really think that this useless shithole called, America is in ANY position to lockdown and quaratine millions like China has done? If so, get your head out of your ass because this shithole is done for. With dumb Trump at the helm and ‘rigid’ Mike Pence leading the ‘fight’ against the coronavirus due to his expertise on…on….on…what the fuck? WE ARE FUCKED! A Google employee just tested positive for this virus and his ass was in Zurich, Switzerland. But the Trump Administration and his minions are still trying to downplay this virus due to what its impact is having on the stock market. Some dumbassjust stated, and I quote, “Don’t think about coronavirus and the stock market will be fine.” Seriously? Which one of you out there is giving a shit about the stock market when you need worry about keeping yourself and those you love safe from this virus that is wreaking havoc? Meanwhile, we are to not worry about it because the stock market must remain in ‘bull’ status because that means what to us? Not a goddamn thing. This is why Walmart can get away with selling you bad shit and not take a hit, but you see, Walmart and Target and Amazon and a host of other entities are, indeed, going to take several hits before this is ALL over.

And finally, don’t say that you weren’t warned. Don’t say that no one ever clued you in as to how corporations don’t give a shit about your health and safety and even presidential administrations don’t as well. Everyday people are trying their best to clue you in. So all I can say is, “Stay safe out there!”

 

Lawsuits Have Been Filed Over Trump Cutting Food Stamp Benefits….AGAIN!

 

I am pretty sure that those lawsuits are from agencies that help feed the poor and hungry and who are most terribly upset that the poor and hungry are going to starve thanks to Donald Trump’s latest round of food stamp benefit cuts. And as we can see, before Trump is finished, the piddling little safety net that was still in place is going to be gone! So let’s now take a look at who is suing the Trump Administration over food stamp benefit cuts and why.

Slashing Food Stamps Hurts The Poor And Their Supermarkets

A coalition of 14 states, New York City and the District of Columbia, have filed a lawsuit challenging the rule. The lawsuit notes that cuts to the $61 billion food stamp program will have a ripple effect on grocery stores.

WHAT????!!!! The lawsuits were not filed on behalf of the millions who may be impacted by Trump’s cuts to the food stamp program, the lawsuits were filed because of the “ripple effect on grocery stores?” Damn the hungry people; children and all, the focus must be on protecting capitalism and in order to do that, keep those food stamps coming because the corporate bottom line is going to suffer. Children suffering from hunger pangs? Who cares? Mothers needing food to eat in order to go out and work to keep a roof over their children’s head? Who cares? The concern is only for the supermarkets that will take a hit over the loss of those food stamp benefits.

Folks, this is the world we live in today and I for one, don’t mind if the world ends today because I have had it with this shit! People can just starve to death! Never mind that, but the corporate bottom line must be protected at all costs.

I have known hunger and may do so again. I have had to go to work with my stomach growling and I was walking to work with the soles of my $2 sneakers all but gone and one toe had pushed its way up out of the top and yet, there I was, walking to work with just a thin jacket on in the dead of winter and I knew that when I got back home, there was no need to open the freezer or the fridge or even the cupboard as there would be nothing in either one for me to eat and I would have to get up the next day and trudge along. And unfortunately, this is the plight for many, even those who don’t live in America.

I just read a blog about hunger and this lady does not even live in America and she has been hungry for some time. Hunger is no laughing matter! Have you seen the price of ‘food’ lately? This is not the time to be cutting food stamp benefits. People are dying for lack of food. If there are so many charities out there, then why are people still so food insecure? One of the reasons is that in order to access food from food shelves, food pantries and the like, one must first fill out applications and get approved. Did you read that? People must get approved before they can take food home. These charities must process applications to make sure that people are poor enough to make use of their food pantries and food banks in order to take food home. I’m not saying that ALL of them are requiring that people fill out applications, but quite a few insist that people go through an approval process before they can take food with them. There is an all out war being waged against the poor and that war is being ramped up with each Administration serving the rich at the expense of the poor. Donald Trump just recently handed a windfall to already wealthy, rich whites in the form of tax cuts and to pay for those tax cuts for the filthy rich, the abject poor must take another hit.

Why don’t you look up from those damn phones and take a look around at what is happening ALL around the world? Everything is going to hell in a hand basket while you sit there and scroll down a damn smartphone screen that’s taken the place of your brains. We don’t need a plague to turn our asses into zombies. We already are zombies, only we are such dumb zombies that we are not stumbling around trying to chomp on brains because no one has any.  And the reason why we have no brains is because for those of us who can afford to put food on the table, that food is poison. It is toxic to our bodies. Even the soil we use, for those of us who are lucky enough to grow our own food, is toxic because the white man has seen to it that no blade of grass, no soil on any continent is worth a damn. We are ALL walking toxin factories thanks to what whites have set in motion that has caused this planet to become a toxic waste dump as opposed to what it was originally, paradise. Everything that we needed to be strong and healthy was right on this planet but because whites were sent here to destroy us and it, this is the result; a toxic waste dump. Look at who is causing ALL the suffering ALL across this planet. Take a good look! And yet, we want to live by their example. Seriously???!!! The rest of us need not have taken up their sorry ass habits. We should have fought back against them with all that we had. And now, it’s damn late to be attempting to reverse the damage that whites have wrought all across this planet on the Innocent.

Everything with whites is ALWAYS all about the bottom line and to hell with anyone and everyone who is not rich and pasty. Who are ALL the billionaires? Who are the ones who can afford to use their billions to launch a presidential campaign just because they long for relevancy and want to derail the outcome of an election? Who is ALWAYS gutting social programs that help those who have been touted as the beneficiaries of those programs when the whites make more use of those programs than anyone else because they make damn sure that we don’t qualify? And yet we are put on display by the whites as the face of social programs when nothing could be further from the truth. I don’t care how brain dead you are, even your brain dead stupid ass should be able to see what the hell’s going down. And for those of you who still claim not to see this shit, the only thing I can do is “Heave A Sigh!”

 

I Heave A Sigh!

I heave a sigh for the hungry children,
who will go without a meal tonight.
I heave a sigh for the sick, old man,
who’ll be dead before morning’s light.

I heave a sigh for those who are jobless.
And for the ones who are out on the street.
I heave a sigh for those who are in cages
and for whom the word freedom, is obsolete.

I heave a sigh for a world in distress
because the needs of the many aren’t met.
I heave a sigh for the broken and forgotten
and for the homeless Vietnam vet.

I heave a sigh because my pen runs dry.
My voice is silenced by a deafening snore.
I heave a sigh because I don’t understand
why we cannot help the weak and the poor.

…..I heave a sigh!!!

Food stamps are being cut AGAIN! The hunger problem in America is about to get even worse as food shelves are already stretched. The programs that help those in need, including children, are being gutted every year and it does not matter if there is a republican or a democrat at the helm of this lopsided, sinking Titanic. The military budget is more important because killing will always remain America’s top priority. And for those who are caught up in a never ending struggle for survival amidst all the lavishness and decadence displayed by the ‘powerful’, who grin at your plight and spit in your face, I heave a sigh and my pen is drained from bemoaning your fate!

…..I heave a sigh!!!

Coronavirus! Any One Up For Some Chinese Kung Pao Bat Or Snake Or Chicken Or Anything Chinese?

 

Happy Chinese New Year! And to celebrate, we have some coronavirus. No, not Corona beer, coronavirus; a deadly virus that has already sickened and killed multiple people, worldwide.

What Is The Coronavirus Illness Blamed For Multiple Deaths In China?

Officials in China are racing to contain a deadly new strain of virus that has infected more than 1,000 people and left more than three dozen dead. Chinese officials have blocked all transportation in and out of the city of Wuhan, where the outbreak of the “2019 novel coronavirus” or “2019-nCoV” originated. At least 12 nearby cities were facing similar lockdowns on Friday, the day before China’s Lunar New Year is celebrated.

As of Friday, two cases have been confirmed in the United States. U.S. health officials confirmed the first case on Tuesday, involving a man in his 30s who had recently traveled from Wuhan, China, to Seattle. The second case was confirmed Friday in a woman in her 60s in Chicago, who had also recently traveled from Wuhan. Health officials said she was “doing well.”

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday that more than 60 people in 22 states are being monitored for possible infection.

Also Starbucks shut shops and suspended delivery in China’s Hubei province for the week-long Lunar New Year holiday. Uh oh! Someone had better find a ‘cure’ for this coronavirus before it puts a damper on CAPITALISM. Starbucks is losing money by not being able to sell coffee. This is monstrous! Not to mention that the stock market has been having fits since news of the coronavirus emerged. To hell with the death toll and the potential for the death toll to rise from the coronavirus, CAPITALISM must continue grinding at all cost for how else are billionaires to remain billionaires and fake ass Wall Street continue to trade fake money while the rest of us live hand to mouth?

And how many more cases will be confirmed since this virus seems to have an incubation period? How many people are infected and will soon find themselves, quarantined because they were on a flight with someone who was infected with the coronavirus? And why has this virus suddenly occurred right at the start of the Chinese New Year when millions would be traveling? So many questions, but are there any answers that are believable?

Here we are still in the first month of 2020 and already Trump has almost started a war with Iran, two bounties have been placed on Trump’s head, Trump has announced that he is cutting Social Security and Medicare, a commercial plane was struck by a missile, killing all onboard, a convoluted impeachment circus is ongoing and now we have the coronavirus. SIGH! Something told me that this would be the year of our discontent and the year hasn’t even gotten off to a good start. And let us not forget the Australian bush fires that have killed about a billion animals and three American firefighters who were sent to Australia to help put out the bush fires.

Meanwhile, I am perusing the latest Chinese menu to get shoved in my mailbox. Let me see. Should I order the Peking Duck or the steamed dumplings stuffed with pork, shrimp tempura, dragon and phoenix soup, beef mongolian style or the combination seafood volcano mixed with a heaping helping of newly arrived coronavirus straight from ground zero; Wuhan, China.

It has been stated that an open air meat market in Wuhan, China that sold seafood and live animals is the culprit of the coronavirus outbreak. Wuhan is the capital of the Hubei province with a population of over eleven million people and from what I gather, one can purchase bats to eat as well as snake, dog and just about anything that moves and literally, your purchase is still moving when you get it to go. So I guess it is no wonder that SARS and now the coronavirus comes to us fresh out of China. And of course the SARS article states that SARS wiped $40 billion off world markets and so what will coronavirus do? As I stated previously, ever the concern for the rich losing a dime, but the poor getting sick? Who cares? Certainly not our lunatic president since he is actually proposing cuts to those who are already disabled. One thing I do know about billionaires, they didn’t become billionaires, even fake billionaires like Trump, by being empathetic and full of good will and concern for their ‘fellow’ man hence why the focus will be on how to contain the coronavirus for the good of world markets. As for containing this virus for the good of the common people? If we get sick, hey! That’s one less poor schmuck that needs a support system and so dig the hole already.

Folks, whether or not you believe that this latest virus to come down the pike will amount to much or not, know this, if you don’t care about those who are going to be impacted by this virus, the next one to come down the pike may be the one to take you out and with leaders like Trump, his policies WILL get around to affecting you in a most negative and lasting manner. Rich white men will never give a damn for those who are not of their circle and they show you this every single day in every single way including taking away funding from those who are already too sick to work and who most likely already have a weakened immune system that would cave if overwhelmed with the coronavirus. “But, who cares, right?”

And for those of you who plan on traveling to the Superbowl, be sure to wear your masks and I wouldn’t order any Chinese takeout if I were you, it may have more in it then what you ordered. One sneeze on your Chinese carryout container, and to the hospital you go!

“Coronavirus, order up!”

Wypipo: Standing on the Shoulders of Slaves — billziegler1947

Whites, more specifically “wypipo,” are the beneficiaries of the settler-colonialist system that created the American Empire — the exceptionalist wing of the “special relationship” that a kinship with British imperialism taught to their former colonies in North America. The colonized learn how to become colonizers. Wypipo permeate every cell of that imperial body politic.

Who are the ADOS?

American Descendants of Slavery are uniquely branded peoples. They did not immigrate to the Americas, they were absconded by the usual thievish characters who knew how to get a return on investment. Free hard labor does wonders for a bottom line if you can live with Faustian bargains. What matters is what you can get away with, not whether you redress injustice as deep as centuries of slavery. How much of an ROI did that accrue to ADOS? A trick question, because injustice continues unabated at all levels of society. From neighborhood to nation.

[…]

via Wypipo: Standing on the Shoulders of Slaves — billziegler1947

Bill, I was feeling this until I came to the comment that precedes yours. However, this part of your comment makes sense.

“ADOS have always been the victims of this fascist spirit, but I see no fascism among the ADOS. I do hear many falsehoods that play into the hands of our fascist overlords, who are 99.99% white.”

Yes indeed, I would dearly love to know why Peter has such contempt for ADOS when not one of us is responsible for why his beloved sentient beings are being slaughtered for ‘human’ consumption. “In denial much?” would be my response to Peter if I were so inclined to respond to him at all.

There are innocent ‘humans’ on this planet and those who look like Peter are so NOT innocent. In fact, if not for those who look like Peter, this world would pretty much look like it should what with people living at peace with the animals in their own lands; people who had no interest in taking to ships to circle the globe to find wars to start, lands to steal, people to enslave and animals to slaughter in order to decimate the food supply of the natives as in what happened on this land to the Indians. People like Peter are delusional and are hating on the wrong ‘people’ and refuse to place the blame on what is going down where it rightfully belongs.

Bill, I want to ‘follow’ your blog, but I refuse to tolerate that nonsense from the likes of Peter. No one has done anything to him or his beloved sentient beings who was not of his own complexion; certainly not one ADOS. And for him to continually throw us under the bus is absolutely asinine and insane. Why, the man is close to foaming at the mouth in outrage over what he perceives ADOS are responsible for. Someone, give that man some meds! Why we have the system of capitalism is thanks to whites. No other group is to thank for that mess and he knows that! There would be no supermarkets displaying dead animals for sale if it wasn’t thanks to the whites and he knows that as well. He also knows who is responsible for why the oceans are a radiated, plastic filled mess and yet he is throwing everyone in with those who are responsible for why this planet is in the shape that it is in. He is either a complete fool and a moron or he is like I’ve already stated, insane!

The comment that I am referencing in the above paragraphs is this one.

Here’s a paragraph from Dr. Steve Best’s latest post, somewhat relevant. “The past reveals our dark history of genocide, overkill, and boundless plunder, and we are now pushing countless other species to oblivion at an alarming rate. Since the 1970s, in just the last half-century, humans have reduced wild animal populations 60%, and within the next few decades we will obliterate an additional million plant and animal species. To indicate the extent to which one species has usurped the planet on its unending path of destruction, 96% of all mammals on earth are now humans and cattle.”

The discovery of what people are, literally, makes it increasingly difficult for me to be sympathetic to anyone’s race or culture, past, present, and future. Perhaps most of all, our race and culture; I’ll hand you that. Nonetheless, we are all cut from the same DNA regardless of color and social status. We all have a Hitler in us. Every damn last one of us. The trick is in control. Self-governance and I mean governing our tyrannical urges which are the very crux of veganism, the very idea of anarchy: Freedom for all and not just the speciests, which I have zero sympathies for. You might appreciate a recent post on Off Guardian, Reclaiming Your Inner Fascist: https://off-guardian.org/2019/11/23/reclaiming-your-inner-fascist/

To which, the author of the blog responded:

Fascism has been festering in the soil of this continent since Columbus. The genocide of each and every tribe began when word of endless riches spread like wildfire through the empires of Europe — white-skinned, forked-tongue systems offered no quarter, they took few prisoners. They deliberately destroyed entire ecosystems along the way, decimated Plains tribes by nearly driving the Bison to extinction, they actually succeeded in exterminating the Carrier Pigeon for its high fast-food value.
ADOS have always been the victims of this fascist spirit, but I see no fascism among the ADOS. I do hear many falsehoods that play into the hands of our fascist overlords, who are 99.99% white. Zero sympathies for them too.
Thanks for both links, Peter. As always, thanks for reading!

Bill Ziegler, the author of the original blog post was trying to showcase the “settler-colonialist system that created the American Empire and a deranged lunatic attempted to derail his argument by suggesting that “We all have a Hitler in us. Every damn last one of us.”

Excuse the hell out of me, but there is not one single HITLER in any American descendant of slaves. What American descendant of slaves is going around burning crosses in the yards of whites? What American descendant of slaves is rounding up and leading whites into gas chambers? What descendants of slaves have organized armies to carry out the insanity of ridding the world of everyone except those whom Hitler declared, ‘fit to live’ as in “blond, blue-eyed clones?” No American descendant of slaves is running around talking about the master race should consist of people who have deep melanin in their skin, thick black hair and brown eyes.

The lunacy or insanity of whites like Peter is why this planet’s peoples, plants and animals are on the brink of extinction. What other groups roamed this planet in search of peoples to conquer, enslave or kill, lands to steal and plunder and then proceeded to make the world one big experiment in capitalism? WHITES with a HITLER complex, that’s who! Don’t get the shit twisted!

Whites like Peter HATE, and I do mean HATE to take responsibility for their fucking actions and that is why if I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times, vegans are NOT the fucking answer to ALL of our problems. Just re-read Peter Schreiner’s comment and get a clue. He maintains that we ALL have a HITLER in us and he must actually believe that outrageous shit! I could not have a HITLER hiding somewhere in my nature if I tried. American descendants of slaves are at the mercy of shits like Peter and this is why we are getting our asses handed to us because even those who consider themselves to be “enlightened” are on some “We all have a HITLER in us,” bullshit!

He has a goddamn HITLER in his ass! He has a HITLER complex! He, like HITLER, would love to destroy everyone whom he thinks is doing shit to his ‘animals’; his sentient beings and people who have been getting fucked up by those who look like him, be damned with our HITLER complex. Seriously? That fucker is beyond crazy!

American descendants of slaves don’t own slaughter houses. We did not put into play mass food production and display the animals he claims to love in supermarkets all across the goddamn globe. American descendants of slaves are not why the oceans are a radiated mess. We are not responsible for why the oceans are also filled to overflowing with plastic to the point whereas many sea creatures are dying from consuming plastic. We did not invent the first motorized vehicle that has led us to outrageous co2 emissions and wars for fossil fuel. American descendants of slaves are not why there are nuclear power plants pouring radiation into the atmosphere and into the oceans and our food every goddamn day. Who is that shit on? That shit is on those who look just like Peter Schreiner and HITLER!

“We all have a Hitler in us. Every damn last one of us.” – Peter Schreiner

Get your ass some help because you are seriously insane, you goddamn pasty-assed lunatic! But you fucking love animals. Like hell you do! You and those like you are why they are disappearing from this godforsaken planet. Own up to the shit you and yours do because YOU fucking own the shit! Don’t you dare sit on your dough colored ass and claim that ALL groups have a “HITLER” in them just because your ass don’t want to admit that your kind is THE most foul, vicious, depraved, deranged, murdering  pieces of filthy garbage to ever have slithered and crawled all across this planet laying waste to every being and everything it came across! You whites are HITLERS.PERIOD. End.Of.Story. You fucking murdering, debased rejects from who the hell knows where!
