And when this fire ‘season’ is over, rebuild so that I can watch it ALL burn down again!

California’s wildfire epidemic blamed on bad building decisions

California’s deadly wildfires have a straightforward solution, experts say: stop building homes in places that are likely to burn — and make homes that already exist in those areas a whole lot tougher.

What is hard about understanding the need to “stop building homes in places that are likely to burn?” You can’t figure out why your shit is on fire and why you are sitting somewhere whining that your antique car is a burnt shell? You can’t figure out that in order to view pristine vistas, there is a price to be paid? In order to get away from the smog of Los Angeles that is caused by ‘white’ parasitic leeches overbuilding, you think that you can live the ‘good’ life nestled in mountainous regions and everything is going to be hunky dory, is that it? Well, welcome to reality. Welcome to your wakeup call. And since you refuse to heed the numerous wakeup calls that’s burned right up to your door, this latest one actually burned your door down along with the rest of your fucking home.

And so we come to this.

Prison Inmates Are Being Used To Battle California Wildfires

Seen as expendable, prison inmates are on the front lines, fighting some of the worst fires ever seen. In the above picture is an inmate fighting a fire who is most definitely not trained to fight a fire of that magnitude.

The Carr Fire, now the sixth most destructive fire in California history, has consumed 121,000 acres and killed six people.

Dr. Craig Clements of San Jose State University’s Fire Weather Research Laboratory said there have been few observed firenadoes of this magnitude before. He says the conditions have to be perfect for something like this to occur.

Firenadoes are formed from a fire’s intense heat, causing the air to heat up quickly and rise rapidly. That, combined with surface winds that are obviously quite strong, creates a vortex similar to a dust devil.

Clements says aside from the potentially damaging winds, a firenado like this can even pull fire in different directions.

Now, I had heard of a movie called, “Sharknado,” but I had never heard of a ‘firenado’. That’s a new one on me and apparently, also on researchers who claim to research this type of phenomenon. I guess next, fire-breathing dragons will also appear and hurl themselves out of these ‘firenadoes’ since life is truly imitating art. It would seem that what has been viewed on the big screen is coming to life as we have never before seen such anomalies as what is occurring today.

But not one news story that I have read or video that I have watched, stated that inmates were battling blazes all across America. Regardless of what you may think of prison inmates, getting burned alive because you don’t know what you are doing as it pertains to fighting fires is no way to die. It should be against the law to even ask inmates to volunteer for fire fighting duty as firefighters have to be properly trained before being allowed to put on that uniform and go fight fires and I am quite sure that inmates are not given the training that non-inmate firefighters receive. And with the knowledge that there are over 2 million Black inmates, I can just guess as to who makes up the majority of inmate firefighters. Ever the expendable ones, we Black folks are.

Our lives are meaningless since the homes of whites are worth more than our lives because make no mistake, the majority of what is burning in California and elsewhere belongs to whites. Black folks homes are not burning down in the wilds of California and yet Black inmates are being used to preserve the homes of whites from firenadoes. The callous disregard for the lives of these prisoners is just beyond the pale.

If I was one of those who had been forced into fighting fires to save dwellings of whites, I would make sure that my contribution consisted of nothing. I would refuse to lift a finger to assist in the saving of one white motherfucker’s belongings. So you’d better be glad that my ass is not locked up and was recruited to save your damn house and car. Material possessions should be meaningless and left to burn, but instead, mostly Black prisoners are being forced to put their lives on the line for some rich white shits possessions. Those fires would eventually burn themselves out and if not, what’s the big deal? You want to build in mountainous regions? Fight the fires your damn selves because it was your choice to build in areas that are prone to fires each and every year and because whites initiated global warming, they have no one but themselves to blame for the fact that the shit is now out-of-control. But who gets to fight to save their shit and their ass? Black folks, as usual. Well count my Black ass out because your shit can burn into the next century for all I care and you along with it. Think I’d lift a finger to help you out? I wouldn’t even piss on a fire engulfing your house to help put it out. Count on that! In fact, I’d stand at a distance and laugh!

You worthless shits deserve everything you are getting and also what’s to come. I am just sorry for my Black brothers and sisters who will lose their lives thanks to your filthy, no account, worthless white asses because you ARE your possessions. Take that shit away from you and you’re nothing and that is why you will use Black humans as shields against damage to your possessions because how many times have you rebuilt in the same fucking areas that are prone to fires only to have the very same thing happen and Black inmates were brought in to beat back the flames that were threatening YOUR fucking possessions? Times too numerous to count, that’s how many. Well you won’t make use of this Black human as a shield against the burning of your fucking precious possessions. I wouldn’t even spit on your shit to protect it! Burn baby burn, firenado style! And if anyone is of the opinion that I don’t give a damn for those whose shit has burned down, it is because I don’t give a damn for those whose shit has burned down because they are reaping what they have sown.

This is why I laugh when I hear of whites’ shit burning down, flooded out or covered in igneous rock.

Fox 9 Investigators: A death in tent city

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

That was in August when there were just a dozen tents along a retaining wall off Hiawatha Avenue, there are now more than 200.

From coast to coast, cities are struggling with homeless camps. 

In Oakland California, fire has become a major concern. Sources in the Minneapolis Fire Department tell the Fox 9 Investigators that is also a concern at the Minneapolis camp. 

The city’s plan for a temporary shelter, a few blocks away, is scheduled to be open the first week of December.  

There is a homeless encampment on Cedar and Hiawatha in Minneapolis, MN, a city I know well. There are many, many homeless INDIANS who ‘camp’ there, who have no home and no hope. They turn to drugs or drink and sometimes both to dull the pain of ‘living’, if you can call it that and it is all a sad ass shame that these people have to live like this because whites stole their land, claimed it for their own and then think their fucking shit don’t stink!

Pamela Rivera died at the homeless encampment of a suspected heroin overdose. Some at the homeless encampment believe she may have been given tainted heroin. How is it that those whose land whites have stolen and built multimillion dollar homes on are living in squalor in hastily erected homeless tent cities? Whites have never given a good goddamn about anyone including the indigenous population since the rich whites like the Kardashians hired their own personal ‘firefighters’ to risk their lives to save their goddamn houses while those in Paradise, are at this very moment, about to receive donations since on MSN’s home screen, MSN is taking donations and is keeping a tally of all the donations thus far and the amount is in the hundreds of thousands.

Why is there never any outpouring of support for those who have had everything stolen from them and who are living on the streets, in plain view? But let some rich white shit’s mansion burn down and the story is front and center for weeks. Let some city that white parasites ‘founded’ and called, “Paradise” burns the fuck down and it’s “Give them donations time!” Those racist dumb fucks CHOSE to build in fire prone areas and previous fires had crawled right up to the edges of ‘Paradise’. Well this time, the fire went beyond the edges and right up to the door. So don’t tell me that those parasites had no idea that their number would eventually come up. Unlike the Indians, who had no say in the fact that their land was stolen by the ancestors of those whose shit is burning down today, those worthless parasites chose to build in basically what amounts to a ‘fire zone’ and so now we are to feel sorry for them because they got just what they were begging for? Hell if I will! I wouldn’t pick up a plug nickel on the street and donate it to those worthless parasites. What for? So that they can turn around and rebuild in the same area and next year this time, they’re somewhere wailing and whining that their shit has burned down again? Fuck them!

I’ll save my handwringing and my anguish over those who live like Pamela Rivera, who had to live  in a homeless tent city right up until the day she died. This woman was the last person on this planet who should have died homeless since this land once belonged to her and her people but because whites are so damn parasitical, they will slither all around the world stealing and enslaving what’s not theirs to steal or enslave and yet when the shit hits the fan for them, they expect help, donations and some more shit! You worthless, diseased, parasitic leeches, this is exactly why karma has come for YOUR ass because you depraved rejects from hell have got some serious shit due you and I hope you keep getting it! But please, PLEASE hold your goddamn breath waiting on me to hand you even a teaspoon of water to help put out a fire on your nasty pasty ass! Your nasty pasty ass would be charred so fast, it ain’t even fucking funny!

He’d Get Even!

 

A child was born, dark as night,
and sent out into the world.
Everywhere he turned,
such insults, people hurled.

He took this all in stride,
grew up and became a man.
Took one look at his skin,
it was darker than a tan.

On a mountaintop, he stood,
looking out on a sea of hate.
He decided that once and for all,
he’d be the master of his own fate.

He had been followed for many a day,
even when he’d stopped to rest.
He thought he’d never feel secure,
knew that to him, this was a test.

God, they said, loved him
and he believed it for awhile.
but he carried with him, a match.
It’ll be evidence at his trial.

You see, this man, he may have snapped
on a hot day in July.
They say he lit a match or two,
but that could be a lie.

They say he took a match in hand
and lit it with intent
to burn and scorch some wood
and express his discontent.

Or maybe he got tired
of America and her shit!
And decided he’d get even
with a match that he’d just lit!

I wrote a poem similar to this one last year and only tweaked it a bit. But you can read the other one here!

This poem was written because a Black man has been arrested for starting the California wildfires that have consumed so many acres and burned so many structures and the fires are still raging even though there are also stories bandied about that fires were started by a vehicle burning up and the wind carried the flames. Nevertheless, this Black man is being charged and held in lieu of $1 million bail in connection with the wildfires. If he did start some of those fires, I for one, don’t blame him. Maybe he did snap. Maybe, he got fed up and that was the only way he knew to fight back. Do I fault him for that if this is indeed, the case? Absolutely not! And from the looks of the structures that have burned, it looks to me like no Black person lost their home or livelihood especially seeing as how the only ‘people’ who have been interviewed are ‘white’. Go figure! It would seem that ‘white’ folks want a race war and since that is the case, you may just get what you’ve been spoiling for. But remember, there is more than one way to skin a cat!

TEMECULA, CA — A Temecula man has been arrested on suspicion of starting the out-of-control Cranston Fire burning near Idyllwild, fire officials announced Wednesday night. And not only is the 32-year-old accused of starting the 4,700-acre fire Wednesday — but he’s also accused of starting four other fires in Southwest Riverside County.

Brandon N. Mc Glover was arrested Wednesday. Riverside County Sheriff’s Department records show he was booked on suspicion of five counts of arson on a structure, five counts of arson on land and three counts of maliciously setting a fire. His bail was set at $1 million.

I must say, Brandon N. Mc Glover knows how to stick it to the ‘white’ man. Burn his shit down and you’ve fucked up his day! Discommode some ‘white’ folks by rendering them homeless like the Black people who have been displaced by gentrification and you fuck up the ‘white’ man’s day. My day ain’t fucked up behind this and that is for damn sure! You see, camping is fine for ‘white’ folks when it is something they WANT to do, but when it is something they have to do…well now, that’s a different story. Ask the ‘whites’ who are still camping out in Hawaii if they still like camping out thanks to the Kilauea volcano erupting and  burying their homes in lava. Karma is a bitch, ain’t it ‘white’ folks??!! And you ain’t done receiving yours yet, so don’t even think it!

You Filthy Corporate Scum!

corporate scum

You cannot be human.
You are metal; a machine.
You’re not a living creature.
You are gross and so obscene.

Not one to pay a decent wage,
no concern do you ever show.
You’re an assembly line prototype.
You were never an embryo.

You’re a stinking piece of shit,
and a pimply, pompous ass.
You waste the air you breathe,
though you think you’ve got some class.

The pitiful and the poor,
who struggle everyday
must never cross your path.
To you, they’re just a stray.

They say that karma is a bitch.
What goes around doth come.
Too bad you’ll never get your due,
you filthy corporate scum!

I wrote this one because the rank and file workers are having a bitch of a time trying to make ends meet and yet the heads of corporations are raking in the dough and then have the nerve to wonder why so many people are not shopping or eating out! Seriously? They’ve got no damn money because wages are stagnant and unemployment for many is due to run out! Yet corporate scum never miss a beat even when they break the law as in Wall Street fraud and other criminal acts. Would that I could get rewarded for being a criminal, get away with it and get millions in compensation for being a damn criminal and what with taxpayers having to pick up the tab(food stamps and medical assistance) for the employees of Wal-Mart and other low wage employers! For the love of …..!!!!!!
