Headline News: Freddie Gray Caused His Own Goddamn Death By Throwing Himself Into The Police Van!

KKKop Edward Nero

Freddie Gray

 

I just cannot make this shit up!

The first officer(Edward Nero) to face trial in the death of Freddie Gray was acquitted on ALL FOUR MISDEMEANOR charges by a judge who said that there were “no credible facts” to show that Nero was directly involved in Gray’s arrest, and said testimony showed Nero’s role in putting Gray in the van was minimized by the actions of others and not unreasonable given his training.

Get the fuck outta here! So…..what? Freddie Gray just threw himself into the police van, severed his own spine so that he could have some peace from the police??? I fucking knew it! I fucking knew it! When are KKKops ever held accountable for the shit that they do? On the goddamn twelfth of never! And don’t hand me no bullshit about how Negro cops were also in the mix. Those house niggers are Massa’s lapdogs and will do as told. They’ve got to impress whitey pink-ass! And Freddie Gray was too Black-assed for those house niggers! And that’s right, I called them ‘house niggers’! Ain’t no way of getting around that. The house niggers are still pitted against the field slaves and believe you me, I am from the goddamn field. So don’t even think that I am going to do your filthy ass dirty work for you. You find some  house niggers for that shit, like Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch and that shit that struts itself in a KKKop uniform, but you’ll never find me fucking up people who look like me! Never that!

Those six bastards killed that man and not a damn one of them are going to jail for the crime of murdering Freddie Gray. His family has been paid off. They received $6.4 million and so there! That ends the case! Never mind the fact that Freddie Gray is not here to spend the money. That ain’t a goddamn problem at all. The man is six feet under with a severed spine and no one is to blame except for him because he just should not have thrown himself into a police van, just demanding to get arrested for doing not a goddamn thing wrong!

And here, Barack Obama just ‘honored’ 13 KKKops with a medal of valor. I suppose the KKKops that murdered Freddie Gray will be in line next to get ‘honored’ with a medal of valor for arresting an innocent man and then severing his spine by their actions.

Now, it is time for #BLACKLIVESMATTER to come strolling through Baltimore, MD with their limp ass, lame ass, dusty ass decades old protest signs and fucked up sneakers and get ta stepping and a marching to the beat of “No justice! No peace! Stop the racist pOOOOOOOleeeeesssssss!” They will then proceed to stage a ‘die in’ which means lie in the goddamn street as if their time for that ain’t coming soon enough. The KKKops ain’t through severing the spines of Negroes, nor are they about to cease with filling our ass full of bullets so that we look like Swiss cheese on a slab after the coroner digs the bullets out in a morgue in any city in any state in this shithole!

And don’t come up in here with no bullshit because I am SO fucking NOT having it! That man was as innocent as the day is long and then some and he was murdered and ain’t a goddamn one of those filthy ass shits going to be held accountable for the murder of Freddie Gray! He hadn’t done a goddamn thing wrong because being a Negro in AmeriKKKa ain’t on him. He did not ask for his ancestors to have been dragged over to this shithole to become slaves. That wasn’t on him! You filthy ass pink fucks are to blame for why this man was murdered and for why no one will be held accountable for his murder! And yet, you run around screaming to all and sundry about how you’re not a fucking racist! You’re ALL racists! That is why nothing has changed in this shithole for hundreds of years! You are no different from the shit that spawned you because if you were, this same goddamn shit would not be staring us up in our face! The shame is on YOU motherfuckers! It is not on us! And we’re getting spines severed and shot full of bullets because you want to get rid of the shame of your vile ass ancestors acts AND yours and for that, you’ve got to murder us all! And we just won’t fucking die fast enough to suit you goddamn termites and parasitic worms, will we?!!

When your foul ass shit is staring you up and down, every goddamn day, you fucking can’t have that, can you? Because we make a lie out of that ‘benevolent’ shit that you go on and on about. We make a lie out of that ‘humanitarian’ shit that you go on and on about. You’re all goddamn liars because ain’t a motherfucking thing good, kind, benevolent or humanitarian about you worthless ass snakes! If your motherfucking lazy ass ancestors had had a goddamn work ethic, then we wouldn’t be over here, but they didn’t and neither do you! Hell! When you get up and leave up out of this shithole, the first goddamn thing you look for when you get to another country is a goddamn MAID. Because you’re too goddamn lazy to clean up your own fucking mess! You won’t even pick a goddamn string bean to put on your motherfucking plate! The Mexicans have to do that for you Yeah, fucking come to my motherfucking house for dinner! I’ll fix you a meal, real good and proper like! You betcha!

———————————————————————————————————-

Freddie Gray, they severed your spine
and now you lie in a box of pine.
The neighborhood put up a shrine.
BLACKLIVESMATTER, where is your sign?
And if you ever step out of line
they gone jail your ass, that pink-assed swine!

Freddie Gray can’t rest in peace
cause these KKKop killings, they ain’t gonna cease!

#BLACKLIVESMATTER, A Diversionary Tactic!

Blacklivesmatter1

 

Has anyone asked the question, “Has there been a noticeable decrease in police murders of Black people since #BLACKLIVESMATTER arrived on the scene?”

Without even bothering to add links, I can answer that. No! There has been no decrease, noticeable or otherwise, in police murders of Black people since #BLACKLIVESMATTER arrived on the scene. And if you need proof,’archive’ this blog to your heart’s content.

#BLACKLIVESMATTER is just a diversionary tactic used to divert Black people away from what we should be doing. It is the same tactic that was used during the Civil Rights Movement when Black unrest was at an all-time high and Black militant groups were gaining members by the hundreds. Along comes Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and his merry band of tireless protesters, complete with pictures of Black people getting hosed down, pictures of dogs sicced on them; the whole nine yards.

“Be peaceful about it, Black folks! Don’t fuck shit up! Don’t burn shit down! Let’s sit down and talk calmly and quietly about that ‘whites only’ water fountain and that ‘whites only’ restaurant entrance and the ‘blacks only’ water fountain and the ‘blacks only’ restaurant entrance and so forth and so on. If you must protest, then go about it all peaceful like. Take this here Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., as an example. We have trained him well. He is all dressed up in a suit and tie, carrying a bible and giving eloquent speeches of his dreams. We don’t give a shit for his dreams, but hey! He is allowed to dream and that is all he is allowed to do. We have him in a jail cell right now, just a’dreaming and some more shit. But he is useful, see? He is the calm and that is what we want, not the storm!”

Fast forward to today and along comes the #BLACKLIVESMATTER movement right when Black folks are getting beyond fed the fuck up with the ever mounting statistics of Black people getting themselves murdered by racist ass KKKops and for no other reason than over the color of their skin. Yet again, Black people are stopped in their tracks from fucking shit up and burning shit down by the sight of protesters, AGAIN, marching with fifty year-old protest signs that have been dusted off and brought out into the light of day in the year of no lord 2015. #BLACKLIVESMATTER is being used as a diversion to deter Black people from going the fuck off by showing them that the way to go about effecting change is to continue with the same lame ass protesting and marching that Dr. King and his crew engaged in.

Let me ask you another question. What did Martin Luther King Jr., and crew accomplish back in the 1960s? Did not the Supreme Court just recently gut the hell out of the Voting Rights Act of 1965? Indeed it did. But you say, “There are no ‘whites’ or ‘Blacks’ only water fountains and restaurants anymore? Really? I’ll put it to you this way, those signs are no longer needed and here’s why. Check the price of lunch at an exclusive country club, restaurant or hotel, can you afford it? Here is a hint. The ‘official’ unemployment rate for Black men is 12.4%, but we all know THAT’S a lie! So, when you cannot afford to keep a roof over your head, you sure as hell cannot afford to pay for lunch in an upscale eating establishment. And ‘white’ folks, don’t even bother coming up in here exclaiming that you can’t either. Cry me a river! This ain’t about you! Maybe everything else is, but not this! It is certainly not MY fault that your own kind left some of you in the dust! Deal with it! You’ve still got less to deal with than we do!

But I digress! Back on topic. When the people started burning shit down in Baltimore during the Freddie Gray riots, the National Guard was called in, a curfew was enacted and the long arm of the KKKlaw nipped that shit in the bud with militarized armored vehicles that had been deployed in actual war zones in Afghanistan and Iraq. The sole purpose was to prevent a halt to capitalism; that which makes the world go round. When you halt capitalism, you fuck up the white man’s day. He can’t have that. The wheels of capitalism must grind because that is how he gets his huge ass bonus check; that is why the stockholders laugh all the way to the goddamn bank. Put a halt to that shit and nobody’s laughing. So, to put you in check, Black people, a new ‘movement’ was introduced, #BLACKLIVESMATTER! It is designed to make you think that you are doing something constructive about all of the shit that is flung at you. It is designed to make sure that you continue to ‘peacefully’ march down the goddamn street and do nothing to starve the beast called, “Capitalism!” It is to ensure your quiet quiescence to the continuation of slavery. Slaves are needed in prison to fill all the orders for capitalism’s expansion. Slaves are also necessary to be picked bone dry by debt collectors, payday loan companies, furniture rental stores and the like. You have only two purposes; one is to be a slave in every way and the other one is to die because it has been estimated that in the not too distant future, the white man will become the minority in AmeriKKKa. He cannot have that. The white man wants his cake and he wants to eat it too. This means that you must play by his rules and if you don’t, then you must die. But then, you must die anyway because the world contains more Black and Brown bodies than it does white ones. Why do you think that wars were started in the Middle East? Oh, in some respects, oil has something to do with it, but it is about much more than that. ISIS is just another diversionary tactic used by the white man to kill off even more of the Brown-skinned variety while enhancing capitalism in the form of weapons for those wars of naked aggression. I mean..uh.. those ‘humanitarian’ wars of naked aggression Oh he’s good! I’ll give him that. He is evil’s own spawn!

If you have fallen for the diversionary tactic that is #BLACKLIVESMATTER, then you can just stop. You can put down your protest sign. You can put away your marching shoes, they won’t do you any good. They are not supposed to. The only thing #BLACKLIVESMATTER is good for is to make you think that you are doing something constructive about police murder of Black people, racism, police brutality, a school-to-prison pipeline, income inequality, mass unemployment and underemployment otherwise known as ‘low-wage jobs, homelessness, addiction and mass incarceration. But you’re not doing a goddamn thing about any of that. You are only pissing in the wind. How does it taste?

$6.4 Million Dollars

Freddie Gray10

Case closed!

Baltimore officials approved a $6.4 million deal Wednesday to settle all civil claims tied to the death of Freddie Gray.
Gray suffered a fatal spinal injury while he was transported in a Baltimore police van in April.

The settlement does not “represent any judgment” on the guilt or innocence of the six police officers charged in the case, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said. “This settlement represents an opportunity to bring closure to the Gray family, the community and the city.”

Six point four million dollars
and you can’t spend a cent.
After attorney’s fees,
that money’s all but spent.

You are dead and buried.
They put a price on the how you died.
If there had been no witnesses,
again, they would have lied.

It’s cold comfort to you
that your family’s getting paid
by the City of Baltimore,
when in a coffin, you were laid.

And still, nothing’s changed.
The same shit is going down.
We protest another murder
of the Black and of the Brown.

We are all just refugees
 with no place to run.
They’ve got us hemmed in,
down to the last one.

Oh, we march down the street
like they did in sixty-three.
Dr. King and all the others
marched on Washington, DC.

Did it change things for you?
Oh that’s right, you can’t talk.
We’ll print another protest sign
and then we’ll take a walk.

Rest easy, Freddie Gray.
We shall surely make you proud.
Can’t you hear the pleas and cries
erupting from the crowd?

This time, it’s going to work;
this marching thing we do.
There’s no reason why it shouldn’t.
Ain’t that what we said to you?

So, the mayor of Baltimore says that, “It’s closure time!” Ain’t that a bitch? The coffin lid was ‘closed’ on Freddie Gray back in April. He has already gotten his ‘closure’. Can’t get more ‘closure’ than dead ‘closure’. What the fuck else is left? Oh right! The BIG payday. And who is going to get the bulk of the $6.4 million? The attorney and the ‘tax man’. What the Caucasoid giveth, he make sure you give it right back to his ass! Yep! Freddie Gray can rest easy now. Everything is cool. Mayor Rawlings-Blake made a statement and that statement is to all her ‘thugs’, uh…all of her constituents that ‘rioted’ that it is time for ‘closure’. See? Freddie Gray is happily silent over his $6.4 million dollar payout, his family’s lawyer can smile all the way to the bank and the City of Baltimore will get the majority of the payout back in taxes. All’s well that ‘ends’..uh…closures well!

Baltimore takes aim at liquor stores after Freddie Gray riots

baltimore1

Many of the stores do not meet zoning laws and Baltimore needs alternatives, such as grocery stores to improve impoverished neighborhoods, Rawlings-Blake said.

“I do not believe it is appropriate for the city to provide money for these non-conforming liquor stores to rebuild as liquor stores in these locations,” she told a news conference in the Park Heights neighborhood, which city officials say has the highest concentration of liquor stores in Maryland.

Nearly 400 businesses across Baltimore, about 40 of them liquor stores, were damaged or destroyed in rioting after the April 27 funeral of Gray, a 25-year-old black man. He died of spinal cord injuries allegedly suffered while in police custody.

About two dozen liquor outlets are thought to be in residential communities for which they are not properly zoned.

Dr. Leana Wen, Baltimore’s health commissioner, said the African-American majority city of 620,000 people had twice the per-capita number of liquor stores for other cities of the same size.

There is a one-block stretch that has at least four liquor stores.

A large number of businesses damaged in the April unrest were owned by Korean-Americans, who operate many family-run stores and liquor outlets.

Well, well, well, ain’t that some shit! The goddamn shit had to be burned down before the city officials would get off their ass and figure out that these liquor stores were not even zoned for the areas in which they operated. Who the fuck was paying who off to look the other way? So, the city is saying that they had no idea that these liquor stores that HAD TO BE LICENSED did not belong where they were located?????!!!!! Seriously? For real! Get the fuck outta here! So, tell me AGAIN, who are the goddamn thugs? The city officials of Baltimore that were paid under the table to look the other way over zoning laws or the goddamn Korean liquor store owners that were paying the city officials of Baltimore to look the other way while setting up illegal liquor stores on every goddamn corner in Baltimore? Who are the goddamn thugs now?

So, it took the riots after the police murder of Freddie Gray, to figure out that Korean-owned liquor stores were operating without proper zoning permits? Eh? What’s that? You didn’t fucking know? Like hell you didn’t. You fuckers were paid to look the other way until the shit hit the fan. Now, who is gonna start an investigation into the shenanigans of the city officials of Baltimore that are duly sworn in to uphold the laws, regulations and dish out permits to legally operating businesses? Start with mayor coonhead’s office and go on down the goddamn line until you weed out all of the elected thugs that were taking bribes and kickbacks for looking the other way. Yeah! Start with the head coonhead, Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. Since her ass was next in line to Sheila Dixon when she had to step down as mayor due to getting herself indicted for embezzlement, fraud and some more shit, then that obviously means that the corruption apple didn’t fall too far from the Baltimore city council tree.

There is a one-block stretch that has at least four liquor stores.

FOUR LIQUOR STORES IN ONE BLOCK? Well ain’t that a bitch! Four goddamn liquor stores in one block; all owned and operated illegally by the Koreans. Hey Koreans!!!! How fucking many of you motherfuckers was living next door to the liquor stores that you opened up, eh? No hands?? Of course not! But you filthy ass motherfuckers bring your fucked up ass over here and promptly open up liquor stores, ILLEGALLY in Black neighborhoods. Why the fuck did you fuckers not open up illegal liquor stores in your own neighborhoods, eh? Why the fuck did you worthless ass bastards not open up liquor stores in white neighborhoods, eh? Because you filthy ass foreigners wouldn’t have that shit in your neighborhoods and the whites in their fucking gated ass communities wouldn’t stand for your shit because they want to see a white face behind the counter when they’re drunk and buying their bourbon and scotch and driving it back down the goddamn road and up a damn tree, but not before sending another poor motherfucker into a ditch.

BALTIMORE HAS TWICE THE PER-CAPITA NUMBER OF LIQUOR STORES FOR OTHER CITIES OF THE SAME SIZE!

Twice!!!! Again, I say, TWICE!!! What’s wrong with that picture? That ain’t a goddamn problem is it? Here we have a majority Black city that has TWICE the per-capita number of liquor stores for other cities the same size and many of the KOREAN-OWNED liquor stores were not even zoned for the neighborhoods that they set up shop in! And again! The city of Baltimore is just figuring this all out, thanks to those people that were called, thugs, for pointing this fact out to all and sundry! So, once AGAIN! Who are the goddamn thugs? Here is a fucking hint! It ain’t the rioters. The goddamn thugs are the elected city officials of Baltimore and the goddamn Koreans that paid the city officials, under the table, to look the other way so that they could continue to do a lucrative illegal business in neighborhoods all across the city of Baltimore and then take their ill-gotten gains and go back to Koreaville, MD. And hell no, I’m fucking NOT politically correct! If your ass is reading this and you are Korean, bring your ass on up in here and crap a goddamn attitude over this! I fucking dare ya!

So, the Koreans ain’t getting no financial aid to re-open their liquor stores. Fucking sob, sob, sob! And if you worthless motherfuckers really think that I am actually crying real tears of sorrow for your filthy ass, then believe this, you’re getting some goddamn federal and state money to re-open your illegal liquor stores! I am glad your shit got fried, toasted and oven roasted! Now suck on that and fucking kiss my ass, but only from a goddamn distance!

And Mayor coonhead Rawlings-Blake! I can only hope that somewhere, some law enforcement agency is digging deep into the shit that I know your coonhead ass is up to. I can only hope that your ass gets thrown in prison and that you get to become Big Bertha’s bitch!

They Can Kill Us, But Don’t Burn The Town!

burning

Let it simmer and let it smolder.
What do we do when it all boils over?
Don’t make it burn, just go sit down.
They can kill us, but don’t burn the town.

Display your anger, respectfully.
Remember to protest, peacefully.
There’s a time and a place for everything.
The white man wants us to march and sing.

That puppet in the White House is an Uncle Tom.
He wants peace from us and yet, he orders a bomb.
He’s got the Zionists fist shoved so far up his ass,
when he farts, Netanyahu can smell his gas.
If his girls were murdered, would peace still reign?
What do you think? Is a white man sane?

They play games with us because they can.
There are some who say that this is all a plan.
So, if indeed it’s true that we are mere pawns,
over our genocide, whites can’t hide their yawns.

They can only claim ignorance for just so long.
Then they have to realize what’s right and what’s wrong.
To keep blaming what they do on shadows in the night,
is to absolve them for not doing what is right.

I have had about all I can stand from people stating that the protestors should have used more restraint. When are the cops going to act with restraint and stop killing Black people? When is enough, enough? When we’re all dead? I don’t give a goddamn about a fucking business. I don’t care if its Pizza Hut, Kamikaze Nail Salon, Frank’s Toupees or a goddamn grocery store. None of that shit matters because the only reasoning behind protecting those businesses is to keep CAPITALISM up and running. Gotta have those stores open for Black Friday specials. Fuck that an unarmed Black teenager is dead; killed by a racist cop. It’s ALL about priorities. To hell with that shit! Stores are insured and can be rebuilt, a life taken, cannot! Michael Brown is dead and buried. Insurance can’t bring him back to life.

When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and all the others that peacefully marched and protested did everything ‘right’, what did it get them? Eh? High powered water hoses, dogs, jail, beatings and who did that? Whites did! But now, Black people are demonized because of some burnt out stores??!!!! Demonization of that shit should have started long ago, when whites were tearing unholy hell out of Black peaceful protestors. But now, let’s get all put out over some burned buildings because after all, the dead teenager was just Black!

Fuck It Up!

Fuck IT up like you mean it!!!!
Fuck IT up like you mean it!!!!

http://talesfromthelou.wordpress.com/2014/01/25/20-early-warning-signs-that-we-are-approaching-a-global-economic-meltdown/

I want to thank Tales From The Lou for posting this because I am now going to take it and run with it, after having given credit where credit is due, of course.

There are many examples of just how fed up, people the world over are and they are not just sitting around holding a smartphone and sexting like the Americans are. It is good to know that there are some people who are not willing to just keep taking it up the ass without any lube at all, unlike the Americans. Since there are so many perverts in America, it is not hard to see why Americans have no problem taking it up the ass without lube.

The people of other countries are fiercely protesting and they are not just having one day events and marches, they are in it for the long haul because they know what Americans refuse to acknowledge and that is that if they continue to let their leaders get away with stomping their rights into the dust, that matters will only get worse. Unlike the Americans who have Justin Beiber to save them and the ‘stars’ at the Grammys and the Kardashians, you know! Kimye and crew? So, while the rest of the world is fucking it up, the Americans are sucking it up and getting fucked up the ass without the lube and loving life because Americans know what is important, Hollywood! The Super Bowl! Fake nails! Models! Fake hair! Fake lips! Fake ass! Fake like you know that you ain’t got it so low! You see, Americans are a bunch of fake ass nut cases. Americans are busy running around spending money that they don’t have and getting hacked to pieces and wondering why this is happening. Sigh! Yes, Americans ARE that clueless!

You would have thought that when the big hacking event that occurred at Target was finally exposed to the stupid Americans, that they would have realized that it was not only Target that was hacked. Oh no! You see, the Americans aren’t very smart. Even after they found out that Neiman Marcus was hacked, even THAT wasn’t a big enough wake-up call. They went shopping at Michael’s and slid that credit/debit card across the counter and wouldn’t you know, they got hacked again. Now, would you call that smart? In my book, that is just asking for trouble. And guess what? Americans keep getting what they ask for, more and more trouble. And they never learn. They are out right now busy getting hacked and next month, there’ll be another report from yet ANOTHER big box store releasing a statement that Americans credit/debit card information got hacked. You see, Americans have not realized in all this time that corporations hide shit for as long as they can possibly hide it because they believe that once the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, that the Americans will react like sane people would. But even the retailers don’t get it because what they fail to realize is that Americans are so stupid that an employee could tell them to their face that hacking is going on and they will still hand over that credit/debit card thinking to themselves that they are protected and that there are limits placed on their cards that limit their liability if fraud occurs. Such trust, can you believe it in this day and age? Yep, that’s Americans for you. Dumb, trusting, stupid idiots who have been dumbed down to the point that many could not even count out correct change if a computer wasn’t doing it for them.

I, for one am so glad that the people of other countries are not looking for Americans to lead the world in attempting to right wrongs and overthrow oppressors and despots. America’s entire political machine is made up entirely of despots. Corruption, Vice, Greed, Kickbacks, Bribes, those are the names of the Americans political leaders. And yes, I do know that there are 535 pieces of filth that make up the American political machine, but they are all named Corruption, Vice, Greed, Kickbacks and Bribes and the names are interchangeable. So, don’t worry if you call Vice and Vice tells you that you have called Greed, you’ll still be speaking to one and the same. But why bother? Because unless you have a brief case filled with greenbacks, call Ghostbusters, you’ll get the same response. Nothing.

Those of you in other countries, I thank YOU for pushing back against the motherfuckers whose sole aim it is to oppress you and to keep you down and steal your pensions and shove austerity down your throats when you’ve done nothing to deserve it. The so-called leaders are corrupt and expect you to pay the price for their corruption and you’re having none of it. Unlike America’s cities that are going bankrupt. Read up on Detroit, the once great Motor City and also renowned for Motown, is bankrupt and the vultures have descended and are cleaning that carcass down to the bone and those who thought that their pensions were safe, not so fast. Read it and weep:
http://www.forbes.com/sites/michelinemaynard/2013/12/03/detroit-is-eligible-for-bankruptcy-and-city-pensions-are-at-risk/
..and here’s a little excerpt.

Judge Rhodes ruled that Detroit’s pensions would be treated the same as any other contract in bankruptcy, meaning that benefits could be cut.
The judge said he would not decide Tuesday on the size of the city’s unfunded pension liability, which has been estimated at between $3.5 billion and $8 billion. The city’s debts are estimated at $18 billion.

Is it the pensioner’s fault? No, but who cares? Somebody or some bodies mismanaged or misappropriated or just flat out fucked up Detroit’s ability to pay its bills and so now that is going to have to fall on the shoulders of those who have worked, retired and who now may find themselves looking for work when there is none. I just hope they didn’t shop at Target, Neiman Marcus, Michael’s and insert retail stores here–>________________.

And I should not forget that Stockton, California also went belly up!

The Wages of Bankruptcy: Stockton’s Cautionary Tale for Detroit


Here’s another little excerpt:

More than a year after filing for Chapter 9 protection, the California city is struggling with protracted court battles and stripped city services — and that’s exactly what the Motor City might be in for.

At night, Stockton, Calif., becomes a ghost town. Streets lined with boarded-up buildings and rubbish-strewn parks are mostly empty except for drug dealers and their customers, says Dave Macedo, president of the local firefighters’ union. Even in daylight, shootings break out with regularity, and the city of 300,000 was ranked the 10th most dangerous in the country in 2012. “It’s the wild, wild West out there,” says Macedo. Or rather, the wild, bankrupt West.

Just devastating isn’t it? Not really because if it was, it wouldn’t be business as usual or should I say, bankruptcy as usual. But that’s how Americans play it. Remember the Wall Street debacle and how the criminals of Wall Street brought business as usual to its knees and had to get bailed out by, you guessed it, those good old stupid Americans? Well, the Wall Street players are back at it and they’ve upped the ante and it ain’t looking so good for Main Street Americans these days, but you couldn’t tell if you’re looking from afar. But close up, it’s a different story, just ask the people of Stockton, California and Detroit, Michigan and don’t forget to check the bridges and underpasses. You’ll find plenty of homeless people and if you like to gamble as apparently so did the managers of the funds of both Stockton, CA and Detroit, MI, head on over to Las Vegas, NV, you’ll step over a lot of homeless folk there too. Don’t forget Atlantic City, they’re knee deep in homelessness also.

But to those of you in other countries who are trying to fight back, more power to you! And if you should by chance look towards the West and think that you see that Rome is burning because Americans woke the fuck up and fought back, think again. That will just be another California forest fire. It’s ALL good!

Silence is not Golden, It is Acceptance

I have come to the realization that I am never going to be quiet and unobtrusive, shy and reticent, easily intimidated, overwhelmed by the outrageous and staggering wrongs that are perpetrated against people each and every single day all over the world to the point that it would make me just want to throw my hands up in the air in defeat. I will not accept that there is nothing that I can do. There is something that we all can do. For one, we can collectively realize that when others are being persecuted, mistreated, humiliated, killed because they are the wrong complexion and wore the wrong apparel, tortured and wrongfully imprisoned, we should no longer ignore what is going on as if it will never impact us. I ask you to take a look around you. Do you not see anything that is going on today that will never have the potential to affect you? Look really, really hard if you have to. Although, you shouldn’t have to because what is in store for us is already all up in our face. We cannot continue to pretend that what we see is just a passing phase, an anomaly that will soon right itself. Have you not heard that a disease does not get better with time just because it is ignored? It festers and worsens and if not treated will eventually destroy the body sort of like a parasite that eats its way through the system of the host and eventually kills it by sucking the very life out of it, leaving an empty shell.

When we allow ourselves to be taken in and taken over by what is fed to us, be it from the government, from the mainstream media which is controlled by corporations that have amassed fortunes by sucking the lifeblood out of people all over the world, we are allowing the parasite in. We are allowing the disease to take over with impunity and we are trying to ignore the symptoms by going on as though nothing untoward is happening. Even when it is right before our very eyes, we don’t question. We just accept because we have been brainwashed into not thinking for ourselves. We think ‘Survivor’ is a reality tv show and is not indeed, a reality for people, the world over. Many of us just blindly accept the mindless drivel that is shoved down our throat that passes for entertainment and so the disease of silence, doing nothing, ignorance and apathy spreads. The parasites suck another host until it is dead and moves on to find another one, crossing oceans, transcending borders all the while sucking the lifeblood out of every host. Sucking up everything in its path until eventually nothing is left, just an empty, hollow shell.

Let me put it another way. Are we not always at war? Is there not always a riot somewhere, a deposed government official somewhere? chaos, pandemonium, bedlam? That is happening because the people know that the disease of abuse, misuse of them is rampant. They understand that a parasite is eating away at their rights, their liberty, their very existence and they are doing whatever it takes to destroy the disease, kill the parasite before it takes them over completely. People all over the world are starting to see, to understand and to realize that to defeat the enemy is not to become like the enemy but to push back against the enemy that is common to us all, those select few who are the parasites, the takers, the abusers, the users, the callous, the depraved. Those of us who live in the United States cannot point fingers at China or anywhere else and get outraged over human rights abuses when we have the same thing being played out here. We have people wrongfully imprisoned for merely shedding light on lies, people who get away with murder while others languish in prison because we have a racist criminal ‘justice’ system, a rollback of the Civil Rights era, segregation by incarceration and inequality in education, pay, housing, and the list goes on and on.

I am ever hopeful that we can come together and unite in a world that is controlled by a select few who exploit the many and sacrifice us for their privilege. I will stand by silently no more. I will not host the parasite nor will I let the disease run rampant. With every breath that I take, I will stand in solidarity with others who are oppressed. I will be concerned and vocal about human rights abuses not only in America, but in India, in China, in Bangladesh. I will condemn my government for committing atrocities not only here, but in other countries as well. I will not sit in silent complicity when what I see is wrong.

And lastly, some question, “just what can I do?” Organize, galvanize, energize your community! Remember, the ripple in the pond began with one small stone and a movement was born. Will you continue to concede to host the parasite until all that is left is an empty, hollow shell to be fed mindless drivel and constantly lied to or will you too, throw a stone in the pond? Never stop writing! Never stop thinking! Never stop questioning! Never just accept and most of all never remain silent! Silence is not golden, it is deadly acceptance!
