STAYTHEF*CKHOME! WEARAF*CKINGMASK!

8:00am: We got dressed and went to the market for groceries and fresh produce before dawn. They open at 6:00am and we were there shopping before 7:00am. Trying to avoid other people and some people are just fucking stupid and still don’t understand “social distancing” and can’t stay six feet away. And NO WE DO NOT WANT TO SELF-CHECKOUT – GET A CASHIER AND A BAGGER PLEASE! And of course the guy’s not wearing his mask over his nose. We got home and unpacked (cleaned and sanitized) and took care of the dog, we were outside and he got breakfast, and we were outside again and we had an espresso. And now we are back in the Home Office trying to relax a little and let the stress go, so we can have breakfast. And the LIttle Boy is under the desk with his bone.

Well the network news had no news….just bullshit morning show happy happy distraction, and CNN has the Senate hearing with Dr. Fauci and the FDA, CDC, and other Trump administration health directors. We are all going to die. Just a matter of time.
Still NO PLAN! NO CURE! NO VACCINE! NOT ENOUGH TESTING! NOT ENOUGH PPE!

WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

Wednesday, July 1, 2020 – Happy Canada Day! Fête du Canada!

It’s Canada’s birthday!
Canada Day is a national holiday celebrating The British North America Act (now known as the Constitution Act of 1867) and the anniversary of the joining of the colonies of Canada (Ontario and Quebec), Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion (a British Federation of four provinces) on July 1, 1867. It was known as Dominion Day until 1982.

O Canada!

The CoronaVirus news today is not good (to say the least). Record number of cases in the United States. Infections are multiplying exponentially as predicted if there were no controls. Trump still thinks it will magically go away, he said so today! Republicans have decided that politicizing the wearing of masks might have been a mistake, TOO LATE NOW. Hospitals are being overwhelmed, medical personnel is being overworked, there is not enough testing, and still not enough PPE or testing supplies. And no end in sight.

It’s a mystery!
Who killed Jeffrey Epstein?
Was it Donald Trump?

BREAKING NEWS THIS AM: It sucks to be Ghislaine Maxwell today.
“There will be a press conference today at noon to announce charges against Ghislaine Maxwell for her role in the sexual exploitation and abuse of multiple minor girls by Jeffrey Epstein.” – US Attorney SDNY

11o37tgvyoj41

Trump, Dershowitz, Prince Andrew, Clinton, Richardson, Gates,
and so many other “friends of Jeffrey Epstein” are worried today….
What will she say to the FBI? How much does she really know?
Does she have “insurance” that might be evidence of the rape of little girls?

106714508_763915080813692_1594669728792020265_nEcAlqCVXsAAt9jC

And remember:
Jeffrey Epstein did not kill himself. Who killed him? And Why?
And Ghislaine Maxwell did not kill herself (in advance)

6:00pm: And we can relax again…..
The dogs are fed and we were outside on both sides.
And now they are laying down after a long day and a good supper.
They got fed this morning and had a busy day around the house.
The chores are all done, except now we are going to clean and sanitize the kitchen once again. We gave our housekeeper the week off again (with pay of course)  and told her to stay home and stay safe. We can do the “maintenance” cleaning and we usually take care of our office and laundry, so she can focus on the really important housecleaning stuff.
And we have to do a little gardening and yard stuff (and scoop some poop) this evening or in the morning before the gardeners come back tomorrow.

We want to go out, BUT WE DON’T WANT TO GO OUT. So many stupid people.
Four months of Forced Lockdown and Self-Isolation has kept us safe so far, but we have only been out for groceries once every two weeks, and an occasional errand or trip to the  Post Office always off hours. We made one long trip to the beach and back, but that’s it for going out. And we have said NO to all invitations for masked parties (even outside).
We double mask with a sealed N95 and then folded cloth medical over it. We are still using rubber gloves and sanitizing with rubbing alcohol (rather than hand sanitizer).

7:45pm: We just took a very short nap!
And now we are awake again and  thinking about dinner.

And we didn’t eat dinner. We ate nacho cheese Doritos, peanut M&Ms, a celery stalk, half a carrot, some red grapes, and an apple over the course of the night. And we fell asleep for a hour twice. And we were outside with the dogs of course. (Friday at 4:00am)

Friday, July 3, 2020

Happy 4th of July Weekend!
Aloha Friday! Fez Friday! Casual Friday!

4thh

And No One Is Invited To Our Party!

8:30am: We’ve been awake since before 4:00am. The dogs have been fed. We have been outside a bunch of times. The gardener is here early to work in the yard all day. There are gardeners next door and the construction continues across the street. And the new thing is the hawk (or pair of hawks) that roost in the tall trees and screech. And they start before the sun comes up (5:30am) and yesterday there was one on the ground in the yard and then it was sitting on the pool fence, which is new. And there is also the owl (or owls now) at night but they don’t make a lot of noise, but we worry about our Little Girl dog because she’s little and when she’s shaved for summer she’s really little.

So we made a toasted cheese sandwich on sourdough bread and had a little juice and an espresso for breakfast. And we got the newspapers and then cleaned up some dog poop.

2:00pm: We slept. And we woke up and took the dogs outside.

And then we lost Friday…. nothing happened. We made and ate a pastrami sandwich on a toasted onion bagel. We watched TV and surfed the interweb. We slept and did other things that we don’t remember as we are writing early Sunday morning.

THE SICK AND TWISTED PERVERSIONS OF THE RICH AND FAMOUS!
We “binge-watched” the four episodes of the Jeffrey Epstein documentary on Netflix. OMG. It’s a great doc, but it’s not objective. It’s impossible to be objective.
We recommend you see it. Very important people wanted/needed him dead.
He had blackmail on EVERYONE who visited his houses or Pedo Island!
How many girls and women did he actually rape, sexually assault and traffic?
We expect Alan Dershowitz to have a sudden accident or fatal illness very soon.
And we hope Ghislaine Maxwell confesses everything before they kill her too.

Record decline in air and road traffic this holiday weekend!

Here’s a funny little story:
The Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) voted to defund and cut the budget of the Los Angeles School Police. Yes, in LA we have a separate police force to serve and protect the public schools and adjacent neighborhoods. They operate under a different chain-of-command than the LAPD and they keep the schools safe. So, yesterday, when the budget was cut by 35%, Todd Chamberlain the current white Chief of the School Police resigned. And today, Deputy Chief Leslie Ramirez, a 22 year veteran of the School Police, and a person of color, was appointed to be the Interim Chief.

NO BEACH FOR YOU! NO VAMOS A LA PLAYA!

Los Angeles, Ventura and Orange counties closed the public beaches for the holiday weekend to avoid crowding and to try to slow the spread.

5:30pm: And three and a half days of f*ckery is finally over.
We are exhausted. Just fucking mentally and emotionally spent today.
Feels like we haven’t slept in a week and we are fully stressed out.
And it’s FRIDAY! BANG ON THE DRUM ALL DAY!
The weekend. but there is no weekend when there is no week.
But we can go back to self-isolating in peace today.
GOOD SHABBOS Y’ALL!

We ate cold leftover pizza for breakfast and dinner, and it was good.

“The mask goes over your nose.”

We were up all night and into the morning. And the dog got fed of course.
And we got the papers and eventually made some food around noon.

Our little girl turned 4 years old today! She is the sweetest baby!

19247580_1864148216945069_3973767449453254947_n

Happy 4th birthday to this little girl!

They are closing all the beaches in Los Angeles and Ventura counties
for the 4th of July weekend. Bars have been ordered to close again.
Too little, too late….
NEVER SHOULD HAVE RE-OPENED!
We need a real QUARANTINE LOCK DOWN NOW!

On The Menu: Sunday brunch! 2 eggs over medium, bacon, sourdough toast with butter and raspberry jam, an orange, and an espresso and a little orange juice to drink.
106121254_3788683821158156_8690522614863255422_o

We slept a little. We cleaned a little. We did a little gardening.
We played with dog and hung out in the office with the dog.
We watched TV and surfed the interweb.
Lots of good music to see and hear today!

8:00pm: Just watched the first episode of HBO’s “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark”….
(and the Little Boy is licking my toes under the desk while playing with a bone)

We had a bowl of corn chowder (from the can) with added chicken for dinner.

And now a message from “Ken and Karen”, the viral stars of the week:

And they’ll be touring again when the CoronaVirus Pandemic is over!

3:00am: Helicopter over the house. Burglary suspects loose in the neighborhood.
So much for sleeping. And the dog doesn’t like the helicopter noise too.

8:30am: The copter flew away and we fell asleep at last. And then we woke up at 7:30am and took care of the dog. We were outside and he got fed and he got played with and now he’s laying under the desk while we are writing. We were going to go to the market but decided to wait until tomorrow again.

Time for coffee.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

4:30pm: Well we had coffee (espresso if you want to be technical) and then we fell asleep. We woke up about an hour ago and we were outside with the dog for a little bit. And then we took a shower and made the mistake of watching the Monday afternoon news….
They don’t want to give you bad news on Sunday night or Monday morning, so they dump it all on Monday afternoon. And the news is not good. Most of the news broke over the weekend, Trump and Pence and the GOP knew since March that Putin had offered “bounties” on US Military personnel to the Taliban in Afghanistan, which resulted in US DEATHS! And they didn’t tell anyone, or sanction Russia, or take any action at all, and now they’re denying they knew…..even though it is FACT. And the CoronaVirus is spiking across the country, as predicted when you re-open without testing, a vaccine, or a cure, and you deny the science of the disease. Los Angeles county saw the highest number of cases today. Governor Gavin Newsom half-assed it again today, closing bars but not restaurants in seven counties, instead of ORDERING A COMPLETE LOCK-DOWN again. Broadway announced it will remain closed all year today. AMC Theatres is postponing re-opening movie theatres. Meanwhile, Pence had a conference/rally and there was a big country concert in Tennessee and no one wore a mask or “social distanced”…..
SO MANY KARENS! The new thing is sharing video of people losing it when asked to wear a mask, and publicly shaming them, which is good. WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

106554799_4769516093059331_3867721496970574372_n

This is the problem.

7:00pm: And then we fell asleep again. We took a nice nap and woke up after 6:00pm. Then we fed the dog and went outside on both sides. We ate a toasted cheese sandwich on sourdough bread, a dill pickle (the first real food we ate all day), and drank an iced espresso. And now we are back in the Home Office, with the dog under the desk, updating this Blog Post, surfing the inter web, and thinking about what’s for dinner later.

We finally got tired of thinking about what to have for dinner and made a can of beef ravioli after midnight. Thank you Chef Boyardi!

“We wasted 3 months of everyone’s lives for nothing. All the jobs lost, the birthdays missed, and small businesses devastated were all for nothing. We were supposed to suck it up, close everything down, and quarantine so we could slow the spread, and get a plan in action while saving people’s lives. The point was to do this so that within months we could return to a sense of normalcy and feel safer. We can quarantine as much as we want but without proper leadership taking action in the form of accelerating testing, mandating masks nationwide or using any of the other successful tactics everyone else in world used, all we did was waste everyone’s time.
Now we’re opening back up as if we got through the worst part, when in reality the number of active cases is rising at an accelerated rate and we’re at a worst spot than when this all started. We got lazy, started complaining about wearing masks, played political games and lacked empathy for one another so we made things much worse. This should’ve been a federal issue from the beginning. It should not have been up to the states to deal with it on their terms and hoping they’d do the right thing.
This administration has failed us in the worst way imaginable because it decided to ignore science, and hoped the problem would go away on its own. Now 127k people are dead, and many more will die. Everyone should be pissed off that they sacrificed this much for nothing to come from it. The president failed us and sacrificed hundreds of thousands of lives but the worst part is he still refuses to change or acknowledge any wrongdoing. He’s tweeting about racist statues instead. So now we’re stuck in this situation for many more months to come.” – Paul Cesar

“We thought this was only a respiratory virus. Turns out, it goes after the pancreas. It goes after the heart. It goes after the liver, the brain, the kidney and other organs. We didn’t appreciate that in the beginning,” said Dr. Eric Topol, a cardiologist and director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute in La Jolla, California.
In addition to respiratory distress, patients with COVID-19 can experience blood clotting disorders that can lead to strokes, and extreme inflammation that attacks multiple organ systems. The virus can also cause neurological complications that range from headache, dizziness and loss of taste or smell to seizures and confusion.
Recovery can be slow, incomplete and costly, with a huge impact on quality of life.

SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY! SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY!
SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY! SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY!

Quote by Steve Schmidt, former Republican strategist:
“It will come early: ‘Fox News is now projecting Joseph R. Biden is the President-Elect of the United States’ The American people are going to throw you out of office. You will be repudiated and disgraced. You’ll leave nothing behind but the stench of epic failure. No American has ever failed this country worse than you. None. Your incompetence, ignorance, ineptitude, and old fashioned stupidity have caused the economic collapse and made the U.S. the epicenter of coronavirus death and suffering. You have shattered American alliances and weakened our military. You are a disgrace. Your name will be a synonym for losing, failure, and weakness. Biden is crushing you, and you want to know why? It’s because he is a good man and you are a bad one. He cares about the American people and you do not. He is respected on the world stage and you are laughed at like some type of grotesque and buffoonish clown. He is capable and you are not. You attack because you are scared. Take a minute to look at the picture of Fred Trump on your desk. Do you think he would be surprised by your failures? He would not. He bailed you out over and over again. He bailed you out because you couldn’t cut it as anything other than a con man. There will be no monuments and no encomiums for you. The whole country has watched you fail. The whole country is watching your increasingly feeble state. The whole country is watching you lose. We will all watch you return to your golf clubs as the biggest loser the American presidency has ever produced.”
– Steve Schmidt, former Republican strategist

Saturday morning…. storm warning!
Happy Summer Solstice!

12:30am: Okay, that was good. Took the day off Friday and drove the dogs to the beach and back. Had an okay bacon cheeseburger for lunch. Didn’t take any pictures. Got hot and sweaty and uncomfortable. Came home an took another shower.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

So, we took a nice hot shower at 4:00am on Friday morning thinking that would help us fall asleep, but it didn’t, we may have slept for maybe an hour and we woke up and fed the dogs and got the newspapers. Then we loaded the dogs cages into the car and got everything ready to go before they knew what was happening. We almost called it off (because we were so tired), but instead we loaded the dogs into the car and had an adventure

AND NOW HERE’S OUR CRAZY RANT OF THE DAY:

We didn’t really enjoy our trip, and it was very stressful for the dogs and for us…..
And the hostess at the hamburger stand WASN’T WEARING HER MASK ON HER FACE!
We parked and walked the dogs to the restaurant, it was hot and the dogs were still crazy from getting there, and then she had her mask around her neck, and was talking and handling the food and credit transaction WITHOUT A MASK! We were standing outside on the curb, and the exchange happened outside but WTF?! We wore a mask and we were 20 feet away with the dogs…. and when someone from the business came out and started approaching the dogs, we asked her nicely not to pet them (and without saying it – to stay the fuck away). And then we walked back with the food and it was hot and we were really angry but not saying anything, and we were stressing very hard about it.
WE HAVE TREMENDOUS ANGER TOWARDS PEOPLE WHO AREN’T BEING 100% SAFE! AND THAT IS BECAUSE WE HAVE ELDERLY LOVED ONES WHO MIGHT DIE IF EXPOSED! AND IT ONLY TAKES ONE CARELESS EXPOSURE – THERE’S NO SECOND CHANCE! AND SOME PEOPLE ARE CARELESS, AND SOME PEOPLE COULDN’T CARE LESS. AND THERE’S A STUPIDITY AND AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF DENIAL ABOUT STUPID BEHAVIOR! YOU MIGHT DIE! YOUR FAMILY MIGHT DIE! YOUR FRIENDS AND ASSOCIATES AND NEIGHBORS MIGHT DIE! WE DON’T WANT THAT TO HAPPEN. And so our lunch was “just okay”, and actually it was really horrifying.

Screen Shot 2020-03-19 at 03.38.22

And to be honest, it’s the longest period of time we’ve been out of the house since the beginning of March, and the longest drive we’ve made in months, with the added pressure of managing, transporting, and protecting the dogs. It was really really stressful to begin with and then MY BIGGEST TRIGGER being exposed by someone without a mask happens right in front of me, TEN HOURS LATER AND WE ARE STILL BEYOND MAD.
And we drove home, with some real stop-and-go traffic on the 101 Freeway (the “Ventura Highway”), unloaded and took care of the dogs, took a shower, fell asleep and took a nap, woke up and fed the dogs, and worked on the Blog to work this out. And that was Friday.
It’s 1:00am Saturday morning now. We haven’t eaten dinner, but we ate some mini pretzels and a little ice cream and a few triangles of Toblerone chocolate, and we only ate half the bacon cheeseburger and fries for lunch because we just couldn’t. FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK. (and thats not even enough Fucks)

measlesquarantine

Okay, we’re going to go eat and/or sleep now we think. FUCKFUCKFUCK.
4:15am: SLEEP WON. We slept a little and just woke up and took the dogs outside.
And we didn’t even eat dinner.

NOTE: We revisited this mini-RANT on Saturday at 4:30pm and we’re still mad.

Saturday morning. Today is the day!
Trump’s Rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma! MAGA!
105023520_10218042617960369_5406513817441201850_n

CBS started non-stop coverage yesterday on Juneteenth! Morons without masks!
The dumbest segment of our society on display…. RACISTS, BIGOTS, ANTI-SEMITES!
TRUMPERS. The Cult of Trump. These stupid people worship him.
They think he’s Jesus, And a Trump Rally is everything they dream of….
Stupid people (just like them) gathered together to worship the orange turd.
And now add the CoronaVirus! And remember the virus and wearing a mask is a Democratic political hoax. SO PLEASE TRUMPERS, DON”T WEAR A MASK TODAY!

2:00pm: And we were awake and the dogs got fed and we got the newspapers.
And we were outside, and we went back to bed, and we woke up again.
And we were outside again with the dogs and we scooped the poop, and we are doing a load of laundry, and now we are updating the Saturday Blog Post.
And we are hungry and thinking about some breakfast/lunch food now.

What’s up under the desk? Such a Good Boy!

5:00pm: Okay, so we watered the new tomato plants and the Little Boy loves the hose! So he got all wet and dirty while he was having fun in the water and so we had to give him a rinse off bath and he loves being dried off, so he’s a very happy boy night now. And we were amused and had fun too.  (and love my run on sentences …. hard to care about proper grammar these days)

We still haven’t really eaten today. We had a celery stalk with peanut butter and some mini-pretzels as a snack but we need some real food right now, and then we’ll feed the dogs their supper. And they had a late breakfast and a lot of snacks already today, so they’ll be fine for a little while longer.

8:00pm: So we made some food, and ate the food, and the dogs were outside and they got fed, and we were outside again, and now we are all chillin’ in the Home Office again.

On The Menu: Breakfast for dinner again: 3 eggs over medium, bacon, quesadilla, celery&carrots, dill pickle, raspberries, and cran-raspberry-orange juice and an iced espresso to drink

“The story I’m about to share with you about Joe Biden is special — in fact, I’m fairly certain I’m the only living person left who actually witnessed it firsthand. It was about 16 years ago, and I was a young rabbi, brand-new to Delaware, on my way to lead a shiva minyan — a worship service following a death of a Jewish person. I was from California. Back then, I didn’t know Claymont, Delaware from Scranton, Pennsylvania.
A quick bit of background: When someone passes away in the Jewish faith, we observe seven days of mourning, called shiva. We gather a group of ten Jewish adults together — a minyan — to say the Mourners’ Kaddish. It usually happens in a person’s home — somewhere intimate. In this case, the deceased individual — her name was Mrs. Greenhouse, of blessed memory — had not been a person of means. She had lived in rent-controlled senior housing in a tall high-rise building off of Namaans Road. Her apartment had been too small to fit everyone into, so we conducted our worship service in the building’s communal laundry room, in the basement of the high-rise.
We assembled the ten elders together, and it was in this most humble of places that I began to lead the kaddish. Toward the end of the service, a door at the back of the laundry room opened, and who walks in but Senator Joe Biden, his head lowered, all by himself. I nearly dropped my prayer book in shock.
Senator Biden stood quietly in the back of the room for the duration of the service.
At the close of the kaddish, I walked over to him and asked the same question that must have been on everyone else’s mind: “Senator Biden — what are you doing here?”
And he said to me: “Listen, back in 1972, when I first ran for Senate, Mrs. Greenhouse gave $18 to my first campaign. Because that’s what she could afford. And every six years, when I’d run for reelection, she’d give another $18. She did it her whole life. I’m here to show my respect and gratitude.” Now, the number 18 is significant in the Jewish faith — its numbers spell out the Hebrew word chai, as in “to life, to life, l’chayim!” But it’s also a humble amount. Joe Biden knew that. And he respected that.
There were no news outlets at our service that day — no Jewish reporters or important dignitaries. Just a few elderly mourners in a basement laundry room. Joe Biden didn’t come to that service for political gain. He came to that service because he has character. He came to that service because he’s a mensch. And if we need anything right now when it comes to the leadership of our country — we need a mensch.
I know this is such a simple, small story. But I tell it to as many people as will listen to me.
Because I think that, in their heart of hearts, when people are trying to think about the decision they’ll make this year — this is the kind of story that matters.
Joe Biden is a mensch. We need a mensch.
Thanks for reading.”
— Rabbi Michael Beals of Delaware

Tuesday, June 16, 2020

We have to recap Tuesday.
Awake at 6:00am again – dogs barking- can’t wait to be fed…..
it sucks to wake up angry and frustrated. And the dogs got fed.
And we went back to bed, or tried to sleep.

After 1:00pm calm was restored.
We were outside with the dogs.
June gloom until late in the afternoon.
We cleaned and sanitized the kitchen.
We did a load of laundry.
And we marinated some steak for dinner.
And we fed the dogs their supper.
And we took the dogs outside.
And we hung out and played with the dogs.
And we had the dogs in the office.

There was a slow speed pursuit of a black SUV, and it was so boring even the cops gave up on it. All the media cut away and the dude just kept driving we guess….

And then we made dinner. Skewered the marinated tri-tip steak and broiled it.
On The Menu: Steak-on-a-Stake (see our previous Blog Post for the recipe)

2:00am: Okay, we’re up again. Awake again.
And then we worked on updating this Blog Post.

And we just watched “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” (the Mister Rogers film with Tom Hanks) on TV. And it was weird, but good, but weird. And good.
We also enjoyed the Mister Rogers documentary film that came out last year.
Both are worth viewing.
And we just took the dogs outside at 4:00am.

8:00pm: It was a nice day. We woke up around 7:30am and took care of the dogs. We were outside and they got fed and we were outside again. We got the newspapers and the mail. We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and drank a little juice and some espresso. The gardener was here today and he did his thing, and the dogs were chill, and we all took a nap. And we woke up and we fed the dogs their supper, and we were outside on both sides of the feeding, and now it’s nighttime.

A SHORT RANT ABOUT FACEBOOK:
Yesterday I was reprimanded by an Administrator of a group I’ve been a member of for years for correcting a newbie on the rules about selling and promoting a known scammer, and then the newbie cried “why are you being mean to me?”, and other people who had no context called me a troll for telling her to remove the post. So, though it hurts to remove past posts with comments from friends who have passed on. I removed most of my posts and comments because the group is no longer private and now caters to unknowns who have visited a renaissance faire once.
Not going to name the group or the Admin. I’m not flouncing or leaving the group. No protest is necessary. I posted this comment on a thread in another group and crossposted it here on my page and not in the offending group. Not into the drama. Not going to cry “why are you being mean to me?” The group was private and that changed. Too many strangers and people who were never at the Agoura site posting and commenting now. Better to take my ball and go home than to fight with children.
Check the group privacy of any Renaissance Faire group you’re in. If it is public, that’s a clue. Then check the friends list, and if it’s hundreds of people you don’t know and have no connection to the faire, then you’ll know.

On The Menu: Breakfast for dinner at 11:00pm

Thursday, June 18, 2020

9:30am: Good morning! We didn’t sleep well again. We had a sore shoulder all yesterday, and it’s a little better today…. We were up very early and then went back to bed and woke up again around 8:30am. The dogs were outside early and then outside again. Then they got fed and we were outside again. And we got the newspaper.

The construction continues across the street and the hammering and noise is never-ending. One of our neighbors has a huge property and Thursday is landscape day and it take hours of heavy equipment just to mow the fuckin’ lawn. Tomorrow is gardener day for our other neighbor, so there is always loud and obnoxious daytime neighborhood noise now.

And planes are flying again, private jets and commercial flights from Burbank and Van Nuys and LAX. More helicopters too. Yesterday we say a Chinook heavy lifter with two props flyover the house, must have been a water dropper for the fire department.

MAN, WE ARE BORED.
STAYING HOME ALL THE TIME, ONE DAY BLEEDS INTO THE NEXT.
TV, INTERWEB, DOGS, FOOD, LAUNDRY, CLEANING.
RINSE-LATHER-REPEAT. 

We are trying to keep the Blog Posts current and have been writing constantly, and posting regularly: THIS IS PART 47 FFS! Three months of forced lockdown and quarantine, with no end in sight, as the number of cases continues to rise, and the city, county, state, and country continue to re-open regardless of the consequences.
THERE IS NO CURE! THERE IS NO VACCINE! THERE IS NOT ENOUGH TESTING!
WE ARE NOW SEEING THE “MEMORIAL DAY SPIKE” and infections will increase as the “PROTEST SPIKE” begins and the “RE-OPENNG SPIKE” hits.
And another 100000+ people could die in the next two months!

11:45am: Almost noon. We got the mail. We were outside with the dogs and then we played inside and now they are napping. We had a cup of espresso this morning but we haven’t eaten since we had breakfast before midnight. So we are thinking about food and what to do next.

Nothing happened. Dogs got fed. We were outside. There was a pursuit. A stolen vehicle pursuit ended with a foot bail in the neighborhood, and now there are many cop and news helicopters hovering as they search for the suspect, and no one covered it.

On The Menu: 3 beef soft tacos with fresh made guacamole and an iced espresso

ARE WE “RE-OPENING” TOO SOON? – YES WE ARE!

“between 800 and 1,000 Americans are going to die every single day.
We’re going to get another 100,000 deaths by September. So, that’s a catastrophic cost”

Oregon just halted their premature re-opening as reported cases spiked!

Many other states are seeing cases spike too. The “Memorial Day Spike” is still part of the first wave of this disease! 116000 Reported Deaths and another 100000 people could die before September!  Trump and the Federal Government aren’t even talking about it anymore. They are more than ready to let you and your family die a horrible death. Cases are spiking in South Carolina, Florida, Alaska, Arkansas, California, Kentucky, New Mexico, North Carolina, Mississippi, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas, Utah and Puerto Rico. Arizona is in the middle of a health emergency and ran out of hospital beds….

THERE IS STILL NO FEDERAL TESTING OR TRACKING! States are on their own.
Some health figures are not being reported correctly…. and so many people haven’t even been tested, so there really is no way of knowing how bad the spread really is!

There are still shortages, medical supplies and personal protective equipment (PPE) are still not available in sufficient quantity to everyone who needs them. Now they need glass vials if there’s a vaccine. Masks, swabs, gowns, gloves, face shields, ventilators, and all kinds of other equipment. And there are also drug shortages thanks to crazy medical advice from a certain “not a doctor”, who promotes medicines that his family and friends are invested in that don’t do anything to cure the virus and in fact may fucking KILL the patient. So what else do you have to lose?

VOTE BLUE 2020 – VOTE THEM OUT AND LOCK THEM UP!

We were up very early. Very early AM.
We made some bacon and toasted 2 mini-croissants.
We took care of the dogs, they got fed.
We got the newspapers and the mail.
We went to the market and bought food.
We came home and cleaned and sanitized.
The housekeeper came today, surprise!
And we took a nap. And then we woke up.
We took the dogs outside, Hello 5:00pm.

We’re having a heatwave.
Setting heat records in Los Angeles this week.
It was HOT, like HOT-HOT-HOT all week long.
And it’s gonna be hot all next week too.

SANTA MONICA AFTER THE LOOTING – (A RANT)

WHAT A DISASTER! The news isn’t even showing how bad it was! How was this allowed to happen? Someone should be fired. The Chief of Police needs to resign! If she doesn’t resign, she should be fired. More than 180 businesses were looted and/or damaged! There was no warning for merchants and no police plan from start to finish. Total FAIL! She can try to worm her way out and explain it, but it was a total fail. Anyone who watched the looting live knows there was zero police response and it was a total tactical failure. They looted guns, jewelry, shoes, clothes, sunglasses and then set fires with impunity, while the SMPD watched. They filled their cars and drove away. And then they arrested peaceful protesters. We’ll also add that this exposes the lack of emergency preparedness in case of other events, such as an earthquake. Is there a plan for police and fire response when a big one hits? Has it been reviewed and tested? Obviously there wasn’t a plan for looting or protests… And who let the protesters walk back into the city after it was on fire with looters running wild? And why were police cars left unguarded on the streets? Again, because there was no preparation or plan. How much does each car cost? And who is going to pay for it? What happened to the weapons inside? They are posing for pictures with the burning and vandalized Sheriff’s cars by the way. Tell me one thing the SMPD did to prevent looting or vandalism?
We were posting live as it was happening.
There is no defending the Chief of Police and her total failure to protect the city. No one was killed, and that was just lucky, because it was total chaos. The looting started before 1:30pm and continued until after dark. SMPD never got control and they even failed to protect the Third Street Promenade, which they had fenced off and where they had posted units. Leaving Santa Monica Place unguarded after the looting started was just one more failure. Stores were completely looted and set on fire before the police even knew they were being robbed. Anyone watching any of the news reports or live cams knew exactly what was happening in real time, and the police should have been stationed on every corner, and the motorcycle units should have been responding instead of being parked on Montana.

FlashbackFriday – We took this pic five years ago!

3:00pm: Remember we said “burnout”, well we needed just a little time.
Very little time.
So FUCK. Is it Sunday yet?
No, it’s only Friday afternoon and we’re already saying FUCK.

We got woken up by the dogs barking more than once this morning….. FUCK.
WHEN WE GET WOKEN UP REPEATEDLY IT PUTS US IN A VERY BAD MOOD.

95968087_10158201463924326_2873284051022643200_n

6:00pm: We took an afternoon nap, and got woken up again. FUCK. FUCK. FUCK.
The mobile dog groomers came this morning and 3 of our dogs got prettied.
The gardener showed up today, so then the dogs had to be contained all day.
And the plumber came back for another visit to finish fixing the toilet.

NOTE: We cannot imagine the risk of being a “service” person, having to work regardless of health condition or concerns, and having to interface with people in their homes, who may be or are sick… and once again hats off to all the doctors, nurses and other healthcare workers in the line of fire! – and there is still no plan or leadership.

CORONAVIRUS! EXTRA! EXTRA! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

EXTRA! EXTRA! CORONAVIRUS! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!

Zero Contact. That is the only way to be safe.
Don’t be the guy defending/rationalizing/ignoring the danger.
Nothing has changed since DAY ONE.

95617783_10157020090066722_8181758870331326464_n

IT IS NOT MAGICAL PROTECTION! WEAR A FUCKING MASK!

YOU DON’T KNOW WHO IS INFECTED!
YOU REALLY DO NOT KNOW! HAVE YOU BEEN TESTED?
ZERO CONTACT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE SAFE!

WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

SO SINCE YOU WON’T LISTEN TO ME, HERE IS MEDICAL ADVICE FROM EXPERTS. YOU SHOULD READ THIS AND NOT IGNORE IT.
Since at least April 2020, the Center for Disease Control has recommended that everyone wear cloth masks in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Studies that found even people without coronavirus symptoms, but who may still have the disease, could transmit the virus through close interactions with others, especially through speaking, coughing, and sneezing.

Screen Shot 2020-03-19 at 03.38.22

Surgical masks (the easiest to get your hands on) are designed to protect others from an infected person. Their structure allows them to capture bodily fluids excreted by the oral and nasal cavities (i.e., from coughing and sneezing). However, they are not designed to protect the wearer from infected people.

A systematic review of published data (MacIntyre and Chughtai, 2015) reveals that masks do not prevent or reduce the infection in community settings when they are the only measure to prevent infection. The reason is that the effectiveness of facemasks is most likely impacted by compliance issues.

3woii6

There is consistent advice emphasising that if you are going to wear a mask, you must wear it appropriately. This means:

  • You must wash your hands before and after wearing or removing it.
  • Do not touch the front of it – the part potentially exposed to the infection.
  • Avoid reaching underneath to scratch your nose or mouth.
  • Wear it most of the time and discard as soon as it gets damp or moist.

Otherwise, wearing masks could give a false sense of security. Research shows that compliance with these guidelines decreases in the household settings with each day of mask use, which makes long term use a challenge.

Essentially, that means people become more and more lax about the correct usage as time goes on. This is particularly relevant in the current situation because measures to suppress the spread of COVID-19 are necessary for long periods of time – not just a few days, but weeks and possibly even months.

Many risks associated with cloth masks

Cloth masks are commonly used in developing countries and many non-standard practices about their cleaning and reuse have evolved. Most studies about cloth masks were conducted before the development of disposable masks. The penetration through cloth is reported to be high. In one study, it was found that 40-90% of particles are able to penetrate cloth masks.

Cloth masks let through more particles

A large prospective RCT study (MacIntyre et al., 2015) showed that moisture retention, reuse of cloth masks, and poor filtration may even result in increased risk of infection. They showed that cloth masks resulted in significantly higher rates of infection than medical masks, and performed worse than the controls.

97409677_267275441315522_8053193147494170624_n

Cloth masks resulted in higher infection rates

The virus may survive on the surface of the cloth masks. Consequently, self-contamination through repeated use and improper doffing is possible (e.g. contaminated cloth mask may transfer pathogen from the mask to the bare hands of the wearer).

Cloth masks facilitate self-contamination

Although any material may provide a physical barrier to an infection, if it does not fit well around the nose and mouth, or the material allows infectious particles to freely pass through it, then it will be of no benefit and also unsafe.

In conclusion, although wearing a mask could be beneficial when the wearer is properly trained on how to use it and adheres to all other mask etiquettes, there are other measures available to protect against spreading the virus. Wash your hands, do not touch your face, and practice physical distancing.

DO THE FIVE – HELP STOP CORONAVIRUS!
1 – HANDS – WASH YOUR HANDS! Wash them often!
2 – ELBOW (OR SLEEVE) – Cough into it, not your hand.
3 – FACE – Don’t touch it! Don’t touch your eyes, nose or mouth!
4 – SPACE – SOCIAL DISTANCE! Keep your distance (6 feet or more)
5 – HOME – STAY HOME if you can! (or if it’s mandatory)

DON’T PANIC! – REMAIN CALM!

AND GO WASH YOUR HANDS!
KEEP SOCIAL DISTANCING!
Stay at least 6 feet away from other people! Wash your hands often! Use hand sanitizer! Don’t touch your face, eyes, nose or mouth! Cover coughs and sneezes with your elbow!

Why did the United States refuse the World Heath Organization test kits?
Why did the Trump Administration wait to act?
Why did the Trump Administration tell the Washington state doctors not to test?
Why did the GOP Republicans call it a “Democratic Hoax?”
Why didn’t the CDC test kits work?
Why did they wait to get new test kits from Roche? (~400000 available soon)
Why did he put Mike Pence in charge?

There is a RUSH TO RE-OPEN cities, states and the country.
ARE WE READY TO RE-OPEN?
IS THERE ENOUGH TESTING?

HAVE WE STOPPED THE SPREAD?

Trump and his administration want you to think that 1000 deaths a day is normal. They want you to accept that 116000+ American Deaths as “just the cost of doing business.”

THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC IS NOT UNDER CONTROL!
GROCERY & FOOD PRICES ARE SPIKING! BIGGEST PRICE JUMP IN HISTORY!
THE COUNTRY IS NOT READY TO RE-OPEN!

We woke up, took care of the dogs, and they got fed and we went back to bed.
Our housekeeper came today for the first time since the isolation began in March.
We have been paying her salary while she has been isolating at her home too, and cleaning the house on our own, so now the house needs a real good cleaning.
And while she is here, we are isolating in the Home Office with the dogs.

We ate the last piece of cold pizza
and we drank some orange juice and a cup of espresso.
And we took a shower.

George Floyd’s Funeral is today in Houston, Texas. RIP.
“May the Four Winds blow him safely home.”

Untitled

George Floyd RIP

And it is a media circus. Everyone wants a piece of George now.
News media that never gave a sh*t, running wild with BlackLivesMatter.
AND THAT’S A GOOD THING!
(Every network channel is carrying the funeral LIVE today!)
Because the white news media doesn’t ever cover it like this.

His death at the hands of law enforcement is going to change the world.
There are protests around the world! England, France, Germany, Hong Kong!
In Bristol, England, a crowd of protesters tore down the statue of a British Slave Trader and dumped it in the water. In Hong Kong, thousands broke curfew and came out to remember the 1989 Tiananmen Square Massacre aka the “June Fourth Incident”.

There are already big changes happening at the Federal, State, County and City levels!
Everyone is jumping on the bandwagon, because if they don’t they’re going to get run over. It’s time to pick a side. Corporations and politicians and celebrities better get woke.

And Trump started the day of George Floyd’s funeral by tweeting of course…..

Wednesday, June 10, 2020

8:00am: We are tired. We didn’t sleep much, or at all….
We have taken care of the dogs already. They were outside, and they got fed, and they were outside. And we got the newspapers. We were planning on going to the market, but we are just too tired to suit up and go shopping this morning. And the construction continues across the street, so hammering and nail guns and heavy equipment all day, everyday now…. listening to them bang right now.

And we don’t know if the gardeners are coming today, probably, but we won’t know until they show up, or not. And the gardeners did come and they worked all day.

NOTE: We were feeling “burned out” on Blog writing.
SO we didn’t update this Blog Post again until Thursday evening.

We are now at “THREE MONTHS” of forced lockdown.
CoronaVirus infections are still rising. Have you been tested? Which test?
When did you get tested? Do you have anti-bodies? Are you contagious?
IT IS CRAZY THAT THE CITY AND THE STATE AND THE COUNTRY ARE RE-OPENING!
WHAT HAPPENED TO “STOP THE SPREAD” in 15 DAYS, 30 DAYS, TWO MONTHS?

National Gun Violence Awareness Day is June 5th

Friday, June 5, 2020 – National Gun Violence Awareness Day!

AG Barr Needs To Be Impeached Now!

2 miles of fence around The White House
now FORT TRUMP in Washington DC

102373395_3644745085538872_2036881731059728493_o

The First Amendment of the Constitution prohibits any law abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting petitioning for a redress of grievances. (and there’s also something about religion too)

“Article I – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (The First Amendment)

“Trump has to show how much he loves Jesus”

Trump has turned The White House into a Fort, erecting 2 miles of fencing and calling in the National Guard, mercenaries from Blackwater, unmarked uniformed officers who say they are from the Department of Justice and are actually Texas prison guards and anyone they could get to come to Washington DC to start a civil war. Trump still wants to call in active military troops to invade United States cities and kill protesters.

103258684_10158410877312710_5234541077300239394_n

A bully hiding in a bunker using the military to bully the people who oppose him.
The police beat civilians, they beat the press, they beat the foreign press.
The police arrested and beat people exercising their First Amendment rights.

“Law and Order” Trump wants to “dominate” the public protests. He is a joke. He is a criminal. He attacked peaceful protesters for a photo op! He needs to RESIGN now.

EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! –
EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE! – EVERYTHING TRUMP SAYS IS A LIE!

We watched the protests on the interweb. There was a noticeable drop-off in actual coverage of the protest, shifting to stories of poor citizens victimized by criminals recovering from looting and interviews with clergy and psychologist about BLM.
Such bullshit. The news media didn’t give a shit about BLM until everyone else did.
And some media is still shilling for law enforcement, Trump and the GOP.
FUCK YOU FOX NEWS! FUCK YOU OAN! FUCK YOU DONNY!

101844908_10219908921366853_4004526639483453440_n

We also spent the day on Twitter, retweeting scenes of Police Brutality and Police Violence on peaceful protesters across the country. The images and videos of abuse and harassment are terrifying! There sure are a lot of “BAD APPLES” and there sure are a lot of cops who support them. Beatings with metal clubs and batons, shooting civilians with deadly “non-lethal” bullets and pepper balls, unconstitutional arrests, and more disgusting behavior! Even video of cops spitting on zipped protesters and other cops laughing about it, while other cops stand and watch and do nothing…
TOO MANY DO NOTHING!

And everyone has seen the video of the 75 year old white man shoved to the ground by police, knocked out and bleeding from his head, as other officers look on, walk by, fail to even check on him, and arrest other protesters and threaten the people filming.

AND THE LAPD SHOT A HOMELESS MAN IN A WHEELCHAIR
TRYING TO GET TO SAFETY IN THE FACE WITH A RUBBER BULLET!

EZwBz7KXYAIu40o

THE LAPD SHOT A HOMELESS MAN IN A WHEELCHAIR
 IN THE FACE WITH A RUBBER BULLET!

EVERYONE HAS A CAMERA NOW!
So many criminal acts by law enforcement caught on video.
And we need GPS locaters and working body cams for every cop on duty.
Because the stuff they catch on camera is only a drop in the bucket of police abuse.
A badge and gun is not a license to violate the rights of citizens.
Too many police officers are not properly educated and trained for the job.
And WAY TOO MANY are not mentally or emotionally fit to be an officer of the law.

THIS WAS CLEAR TO EVERYONE BEFORE THE PROTESTS BEGAN
BUT THE EVIDENCE OF BRUTALITY ON PROTESTERS MADE IT IMMEDIATE!
STOP POLICE BRUTALITY AND POLICE VIOLENCE NOW!
DEFUND THE POLICE! REMOVE THE MILITARY EQUIPMENT!

STOP POLICE BRUTALITY! STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM!
STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!

We had a lot of Indian food delivered for dinner and it was delicious!
On The Menu: Chicken coconut curry, chicken tikka (boneless tandoori), bangin bharta (eggplant), aloo gobi (potato and cauliflower), lamb samosa appetizer, basmati rice, garlic naan & onion kulcha (breads), raita (yogurt), mango chutney, and a mango lassi

What did we do today? We woke up too early. And we were up for hours.
And then we went to bed and slept a little. We woke up and it was Saturday.
We tuned in to the protests across the country and it was amazing to watch.

A BIG F*CK YOU TO THE CONFEDERACY!
First the Marines BAN the ‘Stars and Bars’ Confederate Flag completely this week.
And now Richmond, Virginia has finally decided to remove the monuments to Confederate Generals and institutional racism that decorate the city.
Goodbye Robert E. Lee statue! About damn time! The racist south is done now.

Good morning and FUCK.
We are awake at 6:00am on Sunday. FUCK.

The powers that be have decided that people must die.
GET BACK TO WORK! You might die. Your family might die.
And people are going back to church today! Good luck with that.
Las Vegas is open again. “For people who don’t understand the odds.”

Social Distancing? No.
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! No.
WEARAFUCKINGMASK! No.
Why is the CoronaVirus still spreading? DOH!
110000+ REPORTED DEATHS in the United States
(ONE HUNDRED TEN THOUSAND DEAD US CITIZENS)

Two cups of espresso and a piece of cold pizza later.
10:15am HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF. Today just got a lot better.

The pictures from “re-opened” Las Vegas are terrifying!
Maybe 20% are wearing masks and
 casinos protective measures are a big fail.
Attempts at “social distancing” don’t work in Las Vegas.

And these people obviously don’t understand the odds or the risk.
So in three weeks, and there will be 
new outbreaks all over the USA.

THE ROAD TO THE WHITE HOUSE painted with “Black Lives Matter”

There were THOUSANDS of people in the streets of Hollywood!

There were protests all over Los Angeles on Sunday (just like Saturday), except they were larger than ever! The Hollywood protest (tweeted by rapper YZ) grew to 20000+ people!
103304958_3728581247168414_6816200603569202247_o

The protest marchers stretched from Highland to Vine, up Vine to Yucca,
and there were more people joining from all directions! They built a small memorial in the intersection at Hollywood and Highland, marched past the Dolby Theatre, and all over Hollywood before heading for the West Hollywood Sheriff Station.

This is what we’re up against. This is who they are:
POLICE BRUTALITY AND POLICE VIOLENCE IS AN EVERYDAY REALITY!
Everyone has a camera! Everyone is watching now! 

The very definition of irony:
Police brutality directed at people peacefully protesting Police brutality.

Twitter looks like the POLICE BRUTALITY CHANNEL today.
So many incidents in so many cities of Police Violence on peaceful protester!

We need PEACE OFFICERS not police.

There was such a backlash to the use of National Guard, military, and Barr’s “DOJ Police” shadow force (secret service, park police, prison guards, border agents, FBI, DEA, ATF, and the mercenary “contractors”) that even the Generals are calling him dangerous.
All active duty military and most National Guard troops are being withdrawn.
And the police are being heavily scrutinized after the brutality witnessed by everyone.
Questions about the constitutionality of using active duty military against citizens, the “Curfews” and restricting people to their homes to prevent protests.

They are racists, homophobes, and misogynists.
It is pointless to argue with them.
Their weak minds are programmed.
It is a cult. They are not your friends.

So what has the protesting accomplished?

👉🏾Within 10 days of sustained protests:
Minneapolis bans use of choke holds.

👉🏾Charges are upgraded against Officer Chauvin, and his accomplices are arrested and charged.

👉🏾Dallas adopts a “duty to intervene” rule that requires officers to stop other cops who are engaging in inappropriate use of force.

👉🏾New Jersey’s attorney general said the state will update its use-of-force guidelines for the first time in two decades.

👉🏾In Maryland, a bipartisan work group of state lawmakers announced a police reform work group.

👉🏾Los Angeles City Council introduces motion to reduce LAPD’s $1.8 billion operating budget.

👉🏾MBTA in Boston agrees to stop using public buses to transport police officers to protests.

👉🏾Police brutality captured on cameras leads to near-immediate suspensions and firings of officers in several cities (i.e., Buffalo, Ft. Lauderdale).

👉🏾Monuments celebrating confederates are removed in cities in Virginia, Alabama, and other states.

👉🏾Street in front of the White House is renamed “Black Lives Matter Plaza.”
Military forces begin to withdraw from D.C.

Then, there’s all the other stuff that’s hard to measure:

💓The really difficult public and private conversations that are happening about race and privilege.

💓The realizations some white people are coming to about racism and the role of policing in this country.

💓The self-reflection.

💓The internal battles exploding within organizations over issues that have been simmering or ignored for a long time. Some organizations will end as a result, others will be forever changed or replaced with something stronger and fairer.

Globally:

🌎 Protests against racial inequality sparked by the police killing of George Floyd are taking place all over the world.

🌎 Rallies and memorials have been held in cities across Europe, as well as in Mexico, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and New Zealand.

🌎 As the US contends with its second week of protests, issues of racism, police brutality, and oppression have been brought to light across the globe.

🌎 People all over the world understand that their own fights for human rights, for equality and fairness, will become so much more difficult to win if we are going to lose America as the place where ‘I have a dream’ is a real and universal political program,” Wolfgang Ischinger, a former German ambassador to the US, told the New Yorker.

🌎 In France, protesters marched holding signs that said “I can’t breathe” to signify both the words of Floyd, and the last words of Adama Traoré, a 24-year-old black man who was subdued by police officers and gasped the sentence before he died outside Paris in 2016.

🌎 Cities across Europe have come together after the death of George Floyd:

✊🏽 In Amsterdam, an estimated 10,000 people filled the Dam square on Monday, holding signs and shouting popular chants like “Black lives matter,” and “No justice, no peace.”

✊🏽 In Germany, people gathered in multiple locations throughout Berlin to demand justice for Floyd and fight against police brutality.

✊🏾 A mural dedicated to Floyd was also spray-painted on a stretch of wall in Berlin that once divided the German capital during the Cold War.

✊🏿 In Ireland, protesters held a peaceful demonstration outside of Belfast City Hall, and others gathered outside of the US embassy in Dublin.

✊🏿In Italy, protesters gathered and marched with signs that said “Stop killing black people,” “Say his name,” and “We will not be silent.”

✊🏾 In Spain, people gathered to march and hold up signs throughout Barcelona and Madrid.

✊🏾 In Athens, Greece, protesters took to the streets to collectively hold up a sign that read “I can’t breathe.”

✊🏾 In Brussels, protesters were seen sitting in a peaceful demonstration in front of an opera house in the center of the city.

✊🏾In Denmark, protesters were heard chanting “No justice, no peace!” throughout the streets of Copenhagen, while others gathered outside the US embassy.

✊🏾 In Canada, protesters were also grieving for Regis Korchinski-Paquet, a 29-year-old black woman who died on Wednesday after falling from her balcony during a police investigation at her building.

✊🏾 And in New Zealand, roughly 2,000 people marched to the US embassy in Auckland, chanting and carrying signs demanding justice.

💐 Memorials have been built for Floyd around the world, too. In Mexico City, portraits of him were hung outside the US embassy with roses, candles, and signs.

💐 In Poland, candles and flowers were laid out next to photos of Floyd outside the US consulate.

💐 And in Syria, two artists created a mural depicting Floyd in the northwestern town of Binnish, “on a wall destroyed by military planes.”

Before the assassination of George Floyd some of you were able to say whatever the hell you wanted and the world didn’t say anything to you…

THERE HAS BEEN A SHIFT, AN AWAKENING…MANY OF YOU ARE BEING EXPOSED FOR WHO YOU REALLY ARE. #readthatagain

Don’t wake up tomorrow on the wrong side of this issue. Its not to late to SAY,

“Maybe I need to look at this from a different perspective.”

“Maybe I don’t know what its like to be black in America…”

“Maybe, just maybe, I have been taught wrong.”

There is still so much work to be done. It’s been a really dark, raw week. This could still end badly. But all we can do is keep doing the work.

Keep protesting.

WE ARE NOT TRYING TO START A RACE WAR; WE ARE PROTESTING TO END IT,
PEACEFULLY.

How beautiful is that?

ALL LIVES CANNOT MATTER UNTIL YOU INCLUDE BLACK LIVES.

YOU CANNOT SAY ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ WHEN YOU DO NOTHING TO STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM & POLICE BRUTALITY.

YOU CANNOT SAY ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ WHEN BLACK PEOPLE ARE DYING AND ALL YOU COMPLAIN ABOUT IS THE LOOTING.

YOU CANNOT SAY ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’ WHEN YOU ALLOW CHILDREN TO BE CAGED, VETERANS TO GO HOMELESS, AND POOR FAMILIES TO GO HUNGRY & LOSE THEIR HEALTH INSURANCE.

DO ALL LIVES MATTER? YES. BUT RIGHT NOW, ONLY BLACK LIVES ARE BEING TARGETED, JAILED, AND KILLED EN MASSE- SO THAT’S WHO WE’RE FOCUSING ON.

🖤🖤🖤BLACK LIVES MATTER🖤🖤🖤

IF YOU CAN’T SEE THIS, YOU ARE THE PROBLEM.

A Message from Marvel Comics: (copied from Kenny Boyle)

X-Men is about civil rights. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get X-Men.

Black Panther is about civil rights. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Black Panther.

Captain America literally fought Nazis. He is the embodiment of fighting the alt-right. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Captain America.

The Empire in Star Wars is facist. The Rebel alliance are Anti-Facist. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Star Wars.

The Punisher isn’t meant to be a role model for police or armed forces. So much so that the writers of The Punisher made him actively speak out against it in a comic. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get The Punisher.

Deadpool is queer. He’s pansexual. Fact. If you didn’t get that you didn’t get Deadpool.

Star Trek is about equality for all genders, races and sexualities. As early as the mid-60s it was taking a pro-choice stance and defending women’s right to choose. One of its clearest themes is accepting different cultures and appearances and working together for peace. (It’s also anti-capitalist and pro-vegan). If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Star Trek.

Superman and Supergirl (and a whole host of other superheroes) are immigrants. The stance of those comics is pro-immigration and pro-equality and acceptance. If you didn’t get that, you didn’t get Superman or Supergirl.

Stan Lee said “Racism and bigotry are among the deadliest social ills plaguing the world today.” If you’re bigoted or racist, you didn’t get any of the characters Stan Lee created.

The stories we grew up with all taught us to value other people and cultures and to treasure the differences between us. Only villains were xenophobic, or sexist, or racist, or totalitarian. I can’t understand how anyone can have missed that.

If you’re upset that there’s a black Spider-Man, or a black Captain America, or a female Thor, or that Ms Marvel is Muslim, or that Captain Marvel was pro-feminism, or any of the other things right wing “fans” say is “stealing their childhood” – you never got it in the first place. The things you claim are now “pandering to the lefties” were never on your side to begin with.

If you consider yourself a fan of these things, but you still think the LGBTQ+ community is too “in your face”, or have a problem with Black Lives Matter, or want to “take the country back from immigrants”, then you’re not really a fan at all.

Geek culture isn’t suddenly left wing… it always was. You just grew up to be intolerant. You became the villain in the stories you used to love.

Trump was rebuked by the Episcopalian Church yesterday and the Catholic Church today. He used the Episcopalian Church and “a bible” and the Pope John Paul II Statue for partisan politics and a Photo Op today.

WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK! WEARAFUCKINGMASK!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

We did have to venture out and leave the house today to go to the doctor.
We worked out the telephone appointment problem and talked to a doctor on the phone yesterday. We scheduled an in-person appointment after we spoke. We drove over to the office at 1:00pm today and saw the doctor and had blood drawn at the lab.
SO MUCH BETTER THAN OUR LAST VISIT TO THE DOCTOR (at the beginning of March).
We parked, and we were screened by a ten of nurses as we entered the lobby of the building. They checked our temperature and asked us questions, and then we got a sticker! We rode up the elevator alone. We were in the huge waiting room with only one other person and the administrative person (and there was a plexiglass wall between us). We were greeted by the nurse, blood pressure, temp, weight, Everything Was Great!
We spent 30 minutes with the doctor, and had a visual and then a physical exam. We talked and it was so much better than the last visit with our regular doctor. He was out of the office all week, so they cancelled our phone appointment with him, and it turned out to be a great thing! So we went to the lab and there was only one other person there with us and the nurse/lab tech. She checked us in and then drew 6 vials of blood. We didn’t eat all day, no food, no drink, our fast starting at midnight, and we only drank water until after our lab appointment.

The Doctor’s Office

NOTE: We really weren’t prepared for how many people were out and driving around at 1:00pm in the afternoon today! We drove on the 405 and the 101 freeways for the first time in a long time. There was actual traffic and businesses were OPEN. Many had nice big new banners to advertise the fact that they were OPEN. And we drove into Van Nuys and saw some of the damage after our appointment. A lot of graffiti, merchants cleaning up and boarding up, and today most merchants with plate glass windows who hadn’t been boarded up, were boarding up their storefronts, and not taking any chances.
The Police can’t protect you or your property when they are busy somewhere else.

It must suck to know you’re going to jail tonight…

They blocked off Van Ness (and a lot of other streets after 7pm and trapped the curfew breakers. Some ran onto the roof. Anyone still on the street is being arrested now and the vehicles will be impounded. LAPD is not playing tonight.

Screen Shot 2020-06-02 at 20.30.35

Waiting on the roof to be arrested….

LAPD SWAT on the rooftop and everyone goes to lockup.
They cut away for the actual rooftop raid…
MEDIA is working with LAPD so you don’t see the actual police work, just a big show of force. And the media helicopters either keep losing their signal or they are blackingout their picture. One air reporter called it the “TV Wall” – so there is censorship happening.

Wednesday, June 3, 2020

6:10pm: We have not slept.

We made some food. You’ve heard of “pigs in a blanket”?
Well we made “Hogs in a Comforter” with hot dogs and tube biscuits.
101843681_3715673915125814_3303259751080525824_o

 

We took a bath. A REAL BATH. A nice long bath.
101821248_3715671895126016_6325387049092251648_o

We drank some water, gatorade, and cran-raspberry-orange juice.

7:30am: FUCK THE NETWORK MORNING NEWS!
And then there were happy smiley full of shit jerkoffs.
Everything is not okay. Happy moments from the protest marches.
Nevermind the Police Brutality or lack of Police response to the looting.
ARREST THE LOOTERS NOT THE PROTESTERS!
AND THEN WE WON’T NEED A CURFEW TO CONTROL THE POPULATION!
BUT THAT IS THE ONLY “SOCIAL DISTANCING” ANYONE IS TALKING ABOUT!
HOLY SHIT! THERE IS A CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC,
IT IS SPREADING, IT KILLS PEOPLE, AND THERE IS NO CURE!
So we turned to CNN’s talking heads and “on the scene” reporters,
and they are debating whether the military should be involved.

The dogs were fed breakfast and supper. We got the newspapers and the mail.
We scooped the dog poop and groomed the Little Boy and the Little Girl.
We did laundry.

There was a 5.5 magnitude earthquake near Ridgecrest, California. We laid down to nap and fell asleep, and we didn’t wake up until after it happened. And then we checked Facebook and everyone had posted about it.

Accident! Just before 10pm,
LAPD cruiser T-Boned a Tow Truck at full speed and 8 people were injured, 2 critically. They needed the “jaws of life” to get the officer in the passenger seat out of the car.

Thursday, June 4, 2020 LAS VEGAS RE-OPENS TODAY!

The D Hotel and Casino Las and Golden Gate Casino in Las Vegas opened at midnight! Other hotel and casinos will also open for business this week. “Some casinos will have curbside pickup, where you can just drop off your money without going inside.”

Sometimes you need three spicy beef tacos at one in the morning.
On The Menu: 4 spicy beef soft tacos
100957985_3717960854897120_77552764174991360_n

And we eventually finally fell asleep. We have not been sleeping, and when we do, we are not sleeping well with good reasons.

10:30am: We fed the dogs and went outside. We got the newspapers and brought in the trashcans. We are doing another load of laundry. And we are drinking an iced espresso.

Brunch at 1:00pm!
On The Menu:
 Scrambled eggs, bacon, a quesadilla, with orange juice and an iced espresso to drink.
101700880_3720185648007974_1017492028893691904_o

We took a short nap.

Dinner at 10pm.
On The Menu: NY Steak, broccoli, mini-croissants, and a mango nectar drink
101683734_3720414374651768_5152055301549064192_o

And we ate, surfed the interweb, and fell asleep for a little while, and woke up again after midnight and then we were up all night on the interweb retweeting and blogging….
so it’s actually Friday at 5:45am now.

NOTE: A jet just flew over the house! 5:45am arrival, after almost no air traffic for two months. We also saw a couple private jets departing for parts unknown yesterday. Probably “high-rollers” going to Las Vegas since the hotel owners launched a huge public relations campaign about the re-opening of the casinos.

WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA?

The First Amendment of the Constitution prohibits any law abridging freedom of speech, infringing on freedom of the press, interfering with right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting petitioning for a redress of grievances. (and there’s also something about religion too)

“Article I – Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” (The First Amendment)

Barack Obama’s Second Inauguration



UPDATED: Did you hear what happened in Boston?
In Boston, during a verbal dispute, an unarmed teenage boy was forcefully hit in the head with the butt of a weapon by local law enforcement.
Word of the incident spread quickly, and a large number of locals gathered in the street where the incident had happened to protest almost immediately.
As the crowd grew, angry protesters shouted slogans; some business owners, fearing property damage, shut their doors. The local authorities called for uniformed backup; backup came, well-armed.
The assembly was deemed “unlawful,” and the crowd was ordered to disperse. The protesters began to throw dirt clods in response.
In response, multiple uniformed law enforcers fired on the crowd. The first protester to die was a black man and the authorities justified the shooting by claiming that they “feared for their lives.”
Scroll down to read the most intense part…





boston-massacre

THE BOSTON MASSACRE 1770

The above events happened in the year 1770, the authorities were British soldiers, the protest would later be called the Boston Massacre, and the first protester killed in that conflict was Crispus Attucks, a black man considered by many to be a heroic American patriot and the first casualty of the American Revolution.
If, while reading this story, you found yourself siding with the authorities and thinking that the protesters should have dispersed when ordered, and/or that the protesters armed with dirt and sticks deserved to be met with deadly force by armed law enforcement, be aware that you chose the side of the tyrant King George III, not the American patriots.
Ponder that.

WTF? June 1. 2020 at the Lincoln Memorial WTF?

This is what we’re up against. This is who they are:
POLICE BRUTALITY AND POLICE VIOLENCE IS AN EVERYDAY REALITY!
Everyone has a camera! Everyone is watching now! 

Austin police have killed a young man by shooting him in the head with bird shot rounds wrapped in cloth, and continued to shoot the medics carrying his body. They shot a known pregnant woman in the stomach, then stormed and abducted her from a medic tent. They maced young children during a peaceful daytime protest.

Detroit police have brutally beaten, tear gassed and arrested my friends peacefully protesting. A curfew is set from 8pm to 5am city wide.

Rockford police dragged people from their cars and beat them last night.

Minneapolis police shot at people filming them on their own balconies.
Los Angeles Sheriffs also shot at people filming them from their homes.

An NYPD officer called a woman a “fucking bitch” and threw her on the ground. She went into a seizure and had to go to the emergency room. Then more New York cops rammed into crowds of protesters with their cars.

An Atlanta couple last night had their tires slashed, windows broken, and were dragged out of their car and tazed.

Chicago police announced a curfew and then raised the bridges out of downtown. Demonstrators were trapped and at the utter mercy of CPD roundups. A police supervisor ordered on the radio, “Gas ’em all.” Over 1,000 people have been arrested.

Everywhere, journalists are being indiscriminately targeted and arrested. A Minneapolis photojournalist is blinded permanently in one eye after being hit by a less lethal round.

They’ve maced children. They’ve torn off a woman’s hijab. They’re turning off their body cameras and hiding their badge numbers.

This is just what’s been documented. Imagine what hasn’t been.

The true nature of American policing has been revealed for the world to see. I have never seen brutality on such a massive scale. They don’t care if you’re peaceful. They don’t care if they’re on camera.

Black and brown youth are the leaders on the ground. They are the leaders of our future. Black and brown youth are the people who are bleeding, getting beaten, and being thrown into jail. This is trauma that will last their whole lives.

To the bail funds. To the phone lines to demand release. We have to protect our people.

If you’re going out there again please, and I beg you, be safe.

EZclwfYU8AEGx-d

Long Beach, California

NOTE: The camera angle makes it look like he’s pointing at the little girl, he’s actually threatening innocent protesters. We wouldn’t want you to think the Long Beach Police would shoot a small child.



Your black friend is trying to be ok.
Your Black friend in the past 30 days has watched a Black man get shot dead while jogging (Ahmaud Arbery), a Black woman get shot dead while sleeping (Breona Taylor), and the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. Your Black friend has also listened to the President of the United States use segregationist words as a veiled threat.
Your Black friend is trying to be ok.
Please don’t ask us about the looting.
Please don’t chastise us about the rioting.
Please don’t tell us that all lives matter.
Please don’t minimize our fear.
Please don’t bring up Black on Black crime.
Please don’t ask “What about Chicago?”
Please don’t say “if you’d just act like (A Wildly Successful Black Person… Usually Oprah, Obama, Colin Powell, Denzel or Will Smith)”. Please don’t judge us
Your Black friend is trying to be ok.
Listen to your Black friend.
Empathize with your Black friend.
Support your Black friend.
Pray for your Black friend.
Just let your Black friend know you really care.
Your Black friend will remember who truly had their back during this difficult time. They will remember who was more concerned about a looted Target. They will remember you posting a thinly veiled and racially offensive meme. They will remember you calling looters “Savages”. They will remember your silence about their Black life and the Black Lives of others.
It’s real easy.

Do whatever you can to help your Black friend out because your Black friend is trying to be ok…..

DO YOU HAVE A BLACK FRIEND? DO YOU HAVE MORE THAN ONE BLACK FRIEND?

#BlackoutTuesday



Updated June 4, 2020:

One of the men accused of murdering unarmed black man Ahmaud Arbery in the US state of Georgia used a racial slur after shooting him, a court has heard. A Georgia state investigator said Travis McMichael used the slur and an expletive as Mr Arbery lay on the ground. Mr Arbery was jogging when he was chased down by Mr McMichael and his father in Brunswick in February. The case caused widespread outrage after footage was leaked online. Travis and Gregory McMichael are facing murder charges. Another man, William Bryan, faces charges of murder and criminal attempt to commit false imprisonment.

UPDATED Friday, June 19, 2020 

It’s no accident that:

You learned about Helen Keller instead of W.E.B. DuBois

You learned about the Watts and L.A. Riots, but not Tulsa or Wilmington.

You learned that George Washington’s dentures were made from wood, rather than the teeth from slaves.

You learned about black ghettos, but not about Black Wall Street.

You learned about the New Deal, but not “red lining.”

You learned about Tommie Smith’s fist in the air at the 1968 Olympics, but not that he was sent home the next day and stripped of his medals.

You learned about “black crime,” but white criminals were never lumped together and discussed in terms of their race.

You learned about “states rights” as the cause of the Civil War, but not that slavery was mentioned 80 times in the articles of secession.

Privilege is having history rewritten so that you don’t have to acknowledge uncomfortable facts.

Racism is perpetuated by people who refuse to learn or acknowledge this reality.
