The State of America . . .

I read an article in a news publication today in which people were asked to say what they thought of the state of America today using one word. Let it suffice to say, there were very few favorable responses and no visible argument to the negativity noted. Why? What has happened to America? Has America become both financially and morally bankrupt? Has the Pandemic destroyed the heart of America? Has racial divide and failure of us to educate our young brought about the end of peace on our streets? What exactly has happened to America?

The Pandemic brought about a lot of loss. Family, friends, and neighbors suddenly were sick or dead. We were unable to be in close contact with others which for many is a human need. When we did go out into the community again it waws with a mask covering our face. Our neighbors and friends fought over this requirement in public stores and streets largely because of misinformation passed on social media. Dis-trust of our Government grew significantly day-by-day, and nothing could be done to stop the downhill trend not to believe in Government. This dis-trust continues today because our Government to date has failed to identify the source of the Covid-19 virus that almost killed a Nation that has done nothing to discover the reasons why.

A Nation of unemployed supported by Government with far too much time on their hands as Pandemic restrictions eased allowed the growth of criminal activity on our streets, followed by the unfortunate death of George Floyd while in police custody on a public street brought racial tensions to the top of our Nations issues as well as the crippling of our police departments across the Nation. Presently, crime has increased to such a degree that our city streets are unsafe even during daylight hours Police Officers disheartened by cries of the public to “defund the police” and the inability of Government to acquire enough recruits to fill the required police officer employees, has left police departments unable to meet the challenges of fighting crime in our neighborhoods to the extreme that store closures are necessary due to rampant theft.

Inmates that were released from our prisons and jails control our streets with the help of local street thugs that even when law enforcement catches them, are back on the streets within hours leaving the community living in fear. People that had previously lived a life of lawful living suddenly found the only way to prosper in life was to take what you wanted, has begun to do so. Even in the best of neighborhoods, crime riddles the streets and fear of “home-invasion” is real While it has in the past been offensive to declare “martial law” to protect the community, may become necessity in the near future.

Failure of “gun owners” to properly secure their weapons continues to be a primary factor in many school mass shootings, and other shootings of our children. And, no matter how loud it is hollered people still cannot hear our pleas to “please secure your guns.” Our Government still fails to prosecute gun owners for the mis-use of their guns by others, even when negligence by the gun owner is obvious continues. Parents as well as children fear school days and wait for the dreaded call of an incident at their local schools. On the adult venue, people no longer feel safe attending events such as concerts, fairs, or even movies.

I have to stop writing this. The negativity compiled by simply writing this thus far, hurts. Where is this headed? How and to what degree are we going to have to go to defend ourselves? This is not the America I grew up in nor the America our children should live in. You see, the previous paragraphs written are just the tips of the ice-berg. I could write for days on this topic and not repeat the same concern twice. I’m unsure of whom to point a finger at to blame for the state of America today, without the finger eventually pointing back at myself, as in all of us. And to make things even worse, I cannot think of a single thing to say good on this topic . . .

Government Pandemic Robbery

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on

Are you being robbed by your City, County, or State Government? Many of us are and don’t even realize it.

It seems like half the Country is dependent on Federal Funds to survive presently. Most families are struggling, living day to day with the monies they recieve from unemployment and stimulus benefits. And lots of us also utilize other services from local government. Other than those living the life of the independently wealthy, you have run delinquent on payments for such services. This can become a real issue as time goes on because your local government does not give a raggedy rats ass if you are forced by this pandemic to live off goverment benefits, local government wants their money, plus LATE FEE PENALTY. WTF!

Do we get to charge the Feds late fees while we wait for them to return from week after week of usless negotiations and additional weeks of waiting for the check to arrive. Is the Government delaying paying services so other Government can assess additional penalties to the local citizen?

Should you have to pay late fees or penalties to the DMV, or your City or County during this pandemic? How about taxes due? Give this a moments thought. You have worked your ass trying to get ahead, along comes a simple pandemic that currently has passed the year mark. You have lost your job, possibly your home, and your debts are piling up. DO YOU OWE ANYBODY ANY FORM OF PENALTY. Should any Government agency be assessing such penalties to anyone?

In my opinion, yes my opinion . . . No Government agency should be collecting a single penny from anyone during the pandemic. No taxes, no fees, and no penalties. Why? Because each and every Government Agency has pissed away a whole bunch of cash neglegently since the beginning of this pandemic, and if I cannot collect late or penalty payments against Government, why can they do so to me? How many people have gone from middle-class to homeless while waiting for their unemployment. How many months are we all behind on our rent, utility payments, car payments, and everything else we have suffered a loss from? Is anybody giving us a way to recoup our losses by paying our late fees and penalties.

Late Fees and Penalties can add up quite quickly. Calculate the late fees you are being charged. Your late house, car, or utility bill probably are adding late fees to you if you are at all delinquent in payment to them. Have any of these services re-evaluated what they charge for their services during the pandemic? Are any forgiving late payment fees or penalty during the pandemic.

Why is the Government able to collect on past due taxation when the Goverment has miss-handled every tax dollar they had. Look at the money pissed away via Unemployment. The last thing anyone should have to do is pay any past due debt to Government. Yes, you should still pay your current taxes, but why should you pay a past due tax bill or in any way be negativly impacted by government during the pandemic

What do you think? Use the thumbs-up to indicate you share my opinion that nobody including local Government should be assessing late fees or penalties during the pandemic, thumbs-down to indicate you do not share my opinion.

We can see a lot of people are presently returning to work or going on to new jobs that have become available. Good for them. These people are going to struggle to catch up their debts, but how long is it going to take to catch up all your debts to being current? How many late fees are you going to be forced to pay.

Trump Gets More Minority Support Than Ever – Republicans . . .

I just read a news story that claimed Trump had received more minority support this election than republicans in the past. The mere fact that he receives any votes or support at all after the past four years is justification for giving him a free roll in the game. I say forget the election, let’s appoint Trump President for another four years, less Pelosi.

Over the past four years Pelosi has done everything she could to derail Donald Trump’s presidency. She has lied, cheated, and stole in here efforts to cause Trump’s removal from office without fear of reprisal from the people of the United States and for that we should all feel guilty.

Not once did we consider that the reason Trump was elected was because we grew tired of bullshit politicians that did nothing at all, thus hiring Trump “The Businessman” for the job. But Trump never got to do the job. From day one as President, Trump was hounded by Pelosi. And then she spends millions of tax payer dollars trying to impeach Trump on bogus charges. I can’t get away with owing the Tax Man one hundred dollars, while Pelosi pisses away millions? Then the pandemic hits and Trump has to put up with Pelosi underfoot and in his face throughout all of it, including her making sure Trump doesn’t get to send out a second stimulus check because that would win him votes if it happened.

Now it appears that Donald Trump has a lot of minority support during this election. More than any other Republican in the past. That alone should cause pause to this abusive election. Not abusive to them, but abusive to us that have to see and hear it daily. Anyway, if Trump has such support put his ass back in office and kick Pelosi out of hers and maybe Trump can put an end to the current racial disharmony before somebody else in government makes it worse.

Hey, it was just an idea. It beats the hell out of another four year of politician lies and failures. I see we still have Pelosi to look forward to. Wonder who she will bitch at night and day now with Trump gone. Let’s not forget Pelosi the reason no second stimulus check. She don’t care she can afford this months rent, she still employed during pandemic.

Terry Crew . . .

Terry Crew made history today, as a Black man standing tall without Black Lives Matter. The “BET” network site has the story. Terry Crew spoke out about Black Lives Matter a little while back. He caught a lot of flack over his comments, but I say it is refreshing to see a Black man that isn’t a racist. That is unfair of me to say, I know a lot of honorable Black men, that stand alone.

The first thing you have to recognize is Black Lives Matter is a racist organization. Black lives Matter was not meant to be the organization it is today. BLM was formed by a couple of activists in support of homosexuals. Never was the idea that Corporate America would shower you with millions in donations, just because you had the name “Black Lives Matter.”

When George Floyd got killed by a cop holding him to the ground with a knee to his back, nobody cared that BLM had nothing to do with George Floyd, his life or his death. But, when half the world believed BLM was a group seeking the betterment of Black people by support from corporate America, in mass quantities of dollars. These political activists struck it rich and acquired fame to go with the fortune.

At the same time 95% of the Black populace and a significant quantity of White people became lemmings following the hype of BLM. It doesn’t matter that they started acting racist and became criminals without even checking the validity of the information they are angry about. Think of all those people participating in the mayhem, riots, and looting. . . They are all criminals now. (Like I give a shit!) I don’t care about the criminal near so much as being used to prove you can make data tell anything you want it to by simply stopping the data where you want it.

You see, the Washington Post database that was made to prove cops were killing more Black people than the other races did that by proving so many Black people killed in relation to Black people being only 13% of the U.S. population. And, the database supported such claim, if that’s where you stop reading the data.

By going deeper into the data collected and cross-referencing other data within the same database we discover that Black people may only be 13% of the U.S. population, but in the 12 or so states that there is a significant Black population, Black people are 23 to 55 percent of the population. And, that police kill White people at least two times more often. (Again, like I could give a shit) What I do care about is the future racial harmony of the planet.

If any of you all believe Black people have it worse than anyone else, you are wrong. Look beyond skin color. Can you see it? There are people of all races going through the same shit, because of economics. Think back 30 years. The poor section of town was the Black neighborhood and on the other side of town, a White trailer park. The Black neighborhood had more people than the trailer park.

Today, the poorer neighborhoods are intercity or immediate suburbs with a populace of every color there is and there are at least as many White people as there are of other race. We all get treated like shit by the Courts, the Cops, and the City/County Services. Take a minute, go beyond skin color. You don’t have to look hard, people of all colors wading through the same shit every day.

Terry Crew said it right. For there to be success in the future all colors need to come together and build something better. I may be putting words to his meaning but, he’s right. C’mon people (Let’s give a shit) look beyond skin color, let’s build a better future.

Is It Time for Us to Take Up Arms to Defend Ourselves from Black Lives Matter?

There is no question, Black Lives Matter is a racist organization, and little doubt exists that they care not at all whom they harm. Peaceful protest is not part of their plan while spreading fear and creating racial unrest is their method of operation. Destruction to people’s homes in Wisconsin this week demonstrates that Black Lives Matter will target innocent people for an argument with the government.

How long are we supposed to fear the violence of this gathering of racist before we protect ourselves, our families, our property?

Most of America believes the lies that Black people are treated worse and killed more by police due to data obtained from a Washington Post’s database. And the lie continues because people fail to research the data themselves.


Black people should have serious concerns about where this is all leading to. First, you have Black organizations making “Bank” off the racism being created. Then you have the harm being caused to others by their actions and the racism created by such. And the biggie . . . All you people gathered so close, many unprotected, all emotional and breathing heavy, shouting loudly . . . Are you contracting the Corona Virus. It has already been determined that Black people are more likely to die if they contract the virus. Aren’t concerned that this whole situation is part of a bigger plot, to eliminate the Black race in its entirety?

Face it, who benefits from racism? Only the people profiting from it. A situation in which emotions have created a need to confront police is causing people to get killed by police, that years from now we will still ask why. Nothing is being solved. New racism from loss of property, violence, and fear is being created. And the only ones getting anything out of it are the racist.

This is a time to stop looking at skin color for an excuse for the failures to society. You cannot fight racism with racism, it doesn’t work. And your present acts are scaring the hell out your friends and neighbors, people you have lived close to for years, many have become close friends. I am not talking just White people; I mean all people. Many are asking if they will need to defend themselves from their neighbors. Is this what we want for our communities, for ourselves, for our children?

It is time to stand-down, take a breath, get out of people’s faces, quit confrontations, and see what happens. There will be a change for the better, provided it isn’t derailed by other acts creating further racism. And your neighbors will be able to sleep at night without the fear of violence awaiting them in the night.

Forget skin color. Look at every situation without skin color. You will likely find an issue that has nothing to do with skin color. That is what needs to be fixed. And we should all be as one while confronting the government, with a common goal.

Maybe, I am a “wisher and a dreamer” but I believe people have been played by racism long enough. Let’s get past racism and move on to a better future. If you think slavery chained you, think of how long racism has chained us all.

Reparations For What?

There is a lot of talk of reparations for Black people for their slavery over 100 years ago. I do not understand why. Slavery in America is not something to be proud of. We all get that. But, who are you going to blame for it? Are all White men responsible for the slavery of Black men? The point America has not discussed is the fact that everything that brought the Black man out of slavery was at a cost to the White man.

I find this interesting: “Where did the supply of slaves come from? First, the Portuguese themselves kidnapped some Africans. But the bulk of the supply came from the Nigerians. These Nigerian middlemen moved to the interior where they captured other Nigerians who belonged to other communities. The middlemen also purchased many of the slaves from the people in the interior . . . . Many Nigerian middlemen began to depend totally on the slave trade and neglected every other business and occupation. The result was that when the trade was abolished [by England in 1807] these Nigerians began to protest. As years went by and the trade collapsed such Nigerians lost their sources of income and became impoverished.” (from, “It’s Time to Face the Whole Truth About the Atlantic Slave Trade” by  Sheldon M. Stern )

American history is full of misdeeds by men, but not all men. For every evil created there have been men that have stood to fight that evil. The Black man has not reached freedom without the help of others, and at what cost to those others? Black people fail to realize that at least half of this Nation has supported and fought for their freedom. Yet, Black people blame the White man for their troubles.

Going back through history to before the Civil War, White people were working to free the Black man from slavery. During the Civil War half of the Nation took up arms against the other half in effort to free the slaves. Slavery was eliminated in America via the efforts of people of various ethnicities, including Caucasians, who took up the banner of the abolitionist movement. The names of the white leaders of that movement tend to be better known than those of the black leaders, among whom were David Walker, Frederick Douglass, Dred Scott, Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Nat Turner, and many others. When Congress passed (and the states ratified) the 13th Amendment in 1865, it was the culmination of many years of work by that multi-racial movement.

Then until the Civil Rights movement very little progress was made for Black people: “The civil rights movement was a struggle for social justice that took place mainly during the 1950s and 1960s for Black Americans to gain equal rights under the law in the United States. The Civil War had officially abolished slavery, but it didn’t end discrimination against Black people—they continued to endure the devastating effects of racism, especially in the South. By the mid-20th century, Black Americans had had more than enough of prejudice and violence against them. They, along with many white Americans, mobilized and began an unprecedented fight for equality that spanned two decades.”

Do you think the civil rights movement was just the Black man? Do you really believe that there wasn’t White people fighting for equal rights for Black people? “

If necessary, please re-read the “Civil Rights” paragraph above: “They, along with many white Americans, mobilized and began an unprecedented fight for equality.” Believe it or not folks, Martin Luther King did not march alone.

And, if you continue to follow history up to present day, you will find at each step taken White men have walked with Black men for the betterment of Black people. What did the White man get out of it? A program called Equal Opportunity Employment was one of the thing White man got for his efforts to obtain equality for Black people. What that program did was require that unqualified minorities were hired for positions based on the color of their skin ahead of White men that were much more qualified. Seldom did you hear complaint of this government created racism, but how did such effect White people’s lives.

And, working our way further towards today has any progress in equality taken place? “Progress is the largely suppressed story of race and race relations over the past half-century. And thus it’s news that more than 40 percent of African Americans now consider themselves members of the middle class. Forty-two percent own their own homes, a figure that rises to 75 percent if we look just at black married couples. Black two-parent families earn only 13 percent less than those who are white. Almost a third of the black population lives in suburbia.” (Black Progress: How far we’ve come, and how far we have to go.)

9 ‘Facts’ About Slavery They Don’t Want You to Know

What I have been trying to point out to you, the Reader. Is that the fight for equality of all men has never been just a Black fight. Today there are intelligent Black men that fail to see that everything the Black man is going through, so are the men of other races. Look around you. Look at your coworkers, your friends. Sure those with wealth or the entitled few are not going through it, but those not of such privilege, just like you are going through it. Did you really believe te Black man the only one suffering?

If you want to stop racism, stop creating racism. Nobody deserves reparations for anything unless they are still alive and were actually a slave. Quit using the color of skin as an excuse to cause disharmony. And stop this bullshit movement as it is undoubtedly going to create more government sanctioned racism and send us backwards to a lesser time of equality.

Even Black People say the Black Lives Matter movement is racist.

For months I have tried to get people to listen to me, that Black People get treated no differently than anyone else by police and that the claims of such are supported by failure to further expose the data. And, that the BLack Lives Matter movement is a racist hate organization making bank by donations of millions of dollars to their coffers from people that believe the organization something more.

The facts are simple:

1.) More White people are killed by police than any other race.

2.) Blacks may be 13% of the overall country population but are actually 23 to 65% of the population in the cities in which most of the serious incidents have occurred.

3.) Black Lives Matter was never intended, nor expected to become the organization it is today.

4.) George Floyd’s death should never have happened but has made a handful of Black people quite rich.

5.) Our politicians have demonstrated their lack of back-bone and blatant fear of the Black people by jumping to the demands of Black Lives Matter activists for defunding and destruction of our police services.

6.) Although there have been a couple incidents in which police have acted contrary to the law, resulting in deaths of a few people, most have died the result of resistance to arrest and it is not only Black people dying in such situations.

7.) Black Lives Matter is a racist organization, in which they have asked White people to get out of.

8.) Black Lives Matter protesters do not care to comply with the law and use the guise of legal demonstration to destroy property, and create fear amongst others by their aggressive and hostile action

Were the government truly supportive of Black Lives Matter, and/or the true issues, they would be trying to ascertain why so many Black men feel the need to resist, ending in a physical altercation with a probability of injury or death the end result.

A lot of the cases in which the person is injured or dies have been non-serious offenses that would not of even have required the person do anything more than allow himself to be arrested and then be cited or allowed to bail out. A majority of these cases fail to be reasonable as until resistance was involved the person was only facing minor offenses.

Let’s Talk About George Floyd

Let’s preface this by saying there is no question George Floyd should still be alive today, under no circumstance should he have died in police custody, and his death was avoidable.

But, was the police officer acting racist or was George Floyd’s death racially motivated? Allow me to play devil’s advocate for a few moments. The officers approached Mr Floyd telling he was under arrest for committing some sort of crime. While attempting to handcuff Mr. Floyd he became non-compliant and resisted his arrest. The end result was Mr Floyd was taken to the ground. While on the ground Mr. Floyd continued resisting arrest and the officer felt it necessary to to kneel on Floyd’s back. While on the ground Mr. Floyd continued to resist, this time telling the officer that he couldn’t breath. The officer, not believing Mr floyd continues holding him down with his knee.

Now how many people were in the immediate area. Everybody that heard George Floyd cry for help and did nothing is guilty of murder or at least conspiracy to commit murder. You have a responsibility to do something to prevent his death if possible. So did you holler at the officer, did you approach the officer and do anything to stop him? What, you don’t think you can intercede when an officer is unknowingly killing someone?

Do you think it made any difference at all to that officer, the color of George Floyd’s skin? Could have before he resisted, didn’t matter a bit after he resisted. What mattered was his size, how strong he was, and if he was complying with his arrest. Race does not factor into the resistance equation. Do you really think the cop decided to kill a Black man in front of all these people with intent to get away with murder? Right?

If racism plays a role in George Floyd’s death, it’s in the voice of the witness. Negligence definitely! Racism, nope.

American society is so quick to play the race card,that sometimes we look beyond it. George Floyd should not have died. George Floyd should not have died even if he resisted arrest. But, ask yourself . . . Would George Floyd be alive today had he not of resisted arrest?

Now an entire nations political structure has shown their lack of backbone by failing to stand up for themselves and the citizens of this Country. The cop that killed George Floyd needs to be charged with negligent homicide, along with every witness that allowed it to happen. And, every back-sliding politician that has failed to stand up for the Country needs to be voted from office as soon as possible.

This Country allows the playing of the race card far too easily and those doing so are the racist in our society . Quit being racist. We can all get along, and all lives matter.

My First Temp Taking

I visited my local Kaiser Hospital this afternoon to pick up my prescription and as I approached the entrance I am greeted by a row of portable sinks to wash my hands before entering the hospital. Having done that I continued into the hospital entrance where I was greeted by a large fella in hospital garb whio asked me had I experienced any flu like symptoms. Subsequent to my responding with an answer of “no” he advised me he was going to take my temperature. As I was in the process of removing my pants, my temp taking gent was frantically stopping me asking me to remove my motorcycle helmet. (Hey, he didn’t specify where he wanted to take my temp at. I just assumed . . .)

Upon removing my helmet, he draws this small gun from I don’t even know and aims it square at my forehead, and I freeze. A moment later he smiles and says “perfectly normal.”

Wtf, perfectly normal my ass! I just wet myself . . . PERFECTLY NORMAL!

Have you yet to enjoy having your temperature taken to demonstrate if you are infected with the corona-virus or not? It’s not nearly as scary as I play it up to have been. And it is comforting to know that at the time my temperature taken I was not believed to be infected. But, then I ventured into the hospital. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE IN HOSPITALS? They have SICK people in hospitals, not just one or two either. They have an overabundance of people suffering from one ailment or another, cared for by another overabundance of medical folks that are breathing the same air as those people that is sick. Shit, I know if some of that crap jumps on me, at my age I’m gonna die.

Well if I gotta go . . . ‘Mr Pharmacist? Might I have a bottle of those little blue pills please? You see, if I gotta go I prefer it be while suffering from the adverse 4 hour reaction . . . Is 40 of these enough? What do you mean, there’s no pheromones in these to make me more attractive to women?

Well as long as these medical folks have these funny little guns, I know where to stop by for my temperature to be taken to see If the corona-virus has got me or not. Today, in a whole bunch of America a lot of people are concerned about the possibility of becoming infected with the corona-virus. One of the primary symptoms of Covid-19 (corona-virus) is the infected person having a fever. Well if I don’t have a fever, but do have 40 of these little blue pills . . .

Please take the Corona-Virus seriously. Wash your hands, wear a mask, and watch social distancing, please! If you are sick, stay home and call the hospital for instructions on what you should do. And, DO NOT go out running around passing the virus around to everyone. The only thing worse than catching the Corona-Virus, is catching it from some dip-shit that neglects the cautions from the virus like it doesn’t matter.

Keep in mind, that you can have the corona-virus and while showing no symptoms yourself can infect others. This means that while you don’t think it true, you can have the virus and kill others without even knowing it. Nothing about this is cool. Let’s stop this virus so we can be rid of these fucking face masks. I wear glasses and spend most my day trying to look through a fog, it SUCKS! Besides, if it wasn’t for TV, I’ve probably forgotten what a beautiful woman looks like. Hey don’t blame me if I cannot remember your face before the mask. It would help though . . . if you were not wearing a mask with jaws of a beast of some sort!

Damn! Did anybody have any idea that the masks could impact the effectiveness of these little blue pills? LET’s STOP THIS VIRUS!

It’s Okay To Be A Racist If You Are Black!

Why is it okay to be racist one way and not the other?

There is nothing in the banner presented above that says anything about the millions of other people of other races suffering the same problems. How many other American families are feeling the same pain as these African Americans. Why is it okay to be a racist if you are Black?

There is more people in America suffering from economics than racism. But rather than do the research to ascertain the true issue, the race card gets played, damn near every time. 50 percent of America is living paycheck to paycheck, poverty level in the Northern California Bay Area is around $50,000.00 per year because rents are close to $36,000.00 per year for even the shabbiest homes, and few have the emergency funds to cover three months of expenses that the noted advertisement above claims to be a Black problem. IT IS NOT A BLACK PROBLEM.

Why can’t we put racism aside and deal with the real issues. This is not a Black Only problem, and I’ll bet higher percentages of other races suffer the same issues. So why can’t we deal with the real issues?

Is it because there is money in racism? Is it because the loudest gets the play and it’s harder to raise a unified voice? Can we take a count and see if there is a wide difference in the numbers. Let’s count how many of each race are having trouble making ends meet and see if the numbers vary very much. Let’s then defend all of the people regardless of color suffering this way. Let’s quit being racist and find a solution for all the Americans regardless of the color of their skin.

Why is it okay to be a racist if you are Black? It’s not! America, move beyond racism and fix what truly needs to be fixed.
