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.

HAPPY MONDAY! Good Morning! Are the fires out yet?
You’d hardly know this country was burning all weekend.

Los Angeles County remain under CURFEW from 6:00pm – 6:00am
Other areas have curfews at 1:00pm and 4:00pm today (like Santa Monica)

“Don’t have to be ashamed of the car I drive
I’m just glad to be here happy to be alive”
– The Traveling Wilburys

BlackLivesMatters cancelled a planned protest in the Hollywood area, but there are protests happening in other locations around town and in Southern California.

We woke up and fed the dogs. And we went outside a few times.
And we got the newspapers, the mail, and the morning deliveries.
And we took a shower. And we cleaned the bathtub…. for a bath later.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

We ate a couple English muffins with peanut butter and raspberry jam
and drank two cups of espresso with MochaMix. It’s around 2:00pm already.

FUCKERY OF THE DAY:
We tried to get a rescheduled phone appointment with our Doctor who cancelled on us yesterday… actually they called us again, and they gave us a phone appointment with a different Doctor, who we have never seen or even met, and he tried to call us from a blocked private number, so it went to voicemail, and we didn’t get a call.
So now we are waiting for the appointment people to call us back so we can reschedule the call we missed because they didn’t tell us the Doctor would be calling from his home.
And we changed the setting on our phone, pretty much guaranteeing we’ll get called from idiots who can’t figure out an area code or keypad.

And the construction continues…. hammering, nail guns, heavy equipment, backup alarms (BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP BEEP) and a lot of yelling in Spanish.

AND THEN THIS HAPPENED
and FUCKERY OF THE DAY WENT TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL!

Protesters at the White House were tear-gassed, shot with rubber bullets, and beaten by Park Police and Uniformed Secret Service with help from the Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police without warning so Trump could make an insane fascist speech and “dominate the streets” for a ridiculous Photo Op holding a bible upside-down at the church across the street.

EZdsXsUUEAAHyZZ

TRUMP WILL VIOLATE YOUR CIVIL RIGHTS FOR A PHOTO OP!
(ps. You’re holding the Bible upside down Donny)

EZewJD-XkAAm_He

Hitler and Twitler, the Twitter Troll

Why did the chicken cross the road?
To trespass on church property, for a publicity stunt.

TRUMP CREATED AN INTERNATIONAL INCIDENT WHEN PARK POLICE ATTACKED THE AUSTRALIAN PRESS! A news crew from Australia was attacked without cause like other members of the media and the peaceful protesters they were reporting on so Trump could have a Photo Op! This is a clear violation of United States civil rights and the First Amendment. He also used the Church and the Bible for partisan politics.

78133129_10156844627345583_2750908793398231040_n

Some Police Departments DID NOT get the message.

We have seen horrible pictures of severe injuries to peaceful protesters caused by rubber bullets, pepper balls, and tear gas canisters, which we don’t want to share here. And  WHY DO ALL THESE POLICE DEPARTMENTS HAVE MILITARY ASSAULT UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT AND ENDLESS ROUNDS OF TEARGAS TO USE ON PEOPLE WHEN SCHOOLS AND HOSPITALS DON’T HAVE ENOUGH SUPPLIES OR PPE? 

And there was a protest in Hollywood and one in Van Nuys in the San Fernando Valley, even though they were supposed to be cancelled…. and so there was LOOTING in Hollywood and Van Nuys too. The Los Angeles Police Department adjusted their tactics and arrested a lot of the looters, along with any protester out after curfew. There was a lot of damage, and a couple fires, but after five days they finally figured out how to close the streets to trap them. But they still caused a lot of damage and loss today.

They’re looting the Gower Gulch Rite Aid in Hollywood on TV!
Cops arrived fast, just the organized gang folks got stuff.
Really funny when the cops show up and there are people coming out the door.

Looters at the Rite-Aid at Gower Gulch in Hollywood

Don’t be inside when the cops arrive. Looters got arrested at last! The police were able to catch people inside businesses and they were ready to go after them Monday, instead of letting them run wild and destroy with impunity.

Suspects in Custody after TWO High Speed Pursuits Tonight!

LAPD is tracking and chasing down looters – second pursuit tonight!
They are trapping the looters, stopping them in their cars, searching them for stolen property, making arrests and impounding their vehicles.
They are also arresting anyone on the streets.

Screen Shot 2020-06-01 at 21.09.25

Looters and Their Vehicles in LAPD Custody in Hollywood!

How long can they hold this country under Curfew?
The protests will continue and will increase in size and frequency!
The anger only escalates as Trump incites violence and chaos in our streets.
ATTACKING PROTESTERS WILL NOT DE-ESCALATE THE ANGER!

White Supremacists and Outside Instigators have been identified within the protests, and bad elements are using the events as cover for their criminal behavior. There are also people questioning whether piles of bricks are being placed to provide ammo so the authorities can move in on protesters and label them as violent.

‘Matthew Lee Rupert, 28, of Galesburg, Illinois, was taken into custody on Monday, according to the U.S. Attorney’s office. He’s been charged with civil disorder, possession of unregistered explosives, and participating in and organizing riots….The federal complaint against Rupert cites videos that he live-streamed on Facebook in which he brags about renting hotel rooms in Minneapolis and rioting. In one video cited in the complaint, Rupert is allegedly seen handing out explosives and encouraging protesters to throw them at police.” – VICE.COM

AND PEOPLE ARE STILL SICK! AND THEY ARE NOT SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL!

CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!
Will there be a SPIKE after the protests? OF COURSE!
No Social Distancing! So many people without masks in close contact!
Police and protesters exposing each other, confined prisoners held for arrest, police lined up next to each other…. THEY ARE ALL GOING TO BE SICK IN 2-14 DAYS!
Cases were already increasing with the premature “re-opening”, and now this.

As of Tuesday June 2, 2020:
54900+ Reported Cases and 2350+ Reported Deaths in Los Angeles County
4250+ Reported Deaths in California

PUBLIC STATEMENT FROM “ANTIFA”
IN RESPONSE TO THE THREATS ISSUED BY
UNITED STATES PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP

Dear Mr. Trump:
Let us be perfectly clear:
“Antifa” isn’t an organization.
There’s no membership, no meetings, no dues, no rules, no leaders, no structure. It is, literally, an idea and nothing more.
Even the claim of this author to represent “Antifa” is one made unilaterally for the purposes of this communication and nothing more;
there is no governing body nor trademark owner to dispute the author’s right to represent “AntiFa.”
“Antifa” is a neologism constructed from a contraction of the phrase “anti-fascist.”
The truth is, there’s no such thing as being “anti-Fascist.”
Either you are a decent human being with a conscience, or you are a fascist.
The ostensible president of the United States has, today, openly declared that he is a fascist, and that he intends to turn the military power of the United States into a fascist tool.
Now there is no question,
and we can stop pretending that this man represents anything but the worst in humanity, which his supporters embody. And that is the only effect his words will have.
It will likely be no problem for LEO to identify the author of this document, who also has maintained the “AntiFa” page on Facebook since founding it in 2017.
The author of this document is unconcerned with that inevitability because neither that author, nor this document, has been involved in a crime of any sort in any way.
But, since both the “president” and the media insist on acting as though “AntiFa” is this big, scary organization, the author supposes it’s time for “AntiFa” to make a statement.

Thus:
“AntiFa supports and defends the right of all people to live free from oppressive abuse of power, whether that power is unjustly derived from wealth, status as an employer, or political popularity. Particularly, AntiFa defends and supports the right of oppressed and marginalized people to protest, march, and engage in civil disobedience in pursuit of justice. While it is never our intent to engage in violent or destructive behavior, we cannot and will not take responsibility for telling people how they are allowed to be righteously outraged. We prefer and encourage non-violent action. We also understand that some people just aren’t feeling that nice anymore. Their feelings are entirely justified, and it is neither our role nor our privilege to tell them otherwise.
Mass civil disobedience is what happens when people say they’re hurting and whoever’s hurting them refuses to stop. Stop hurting them. Fix your broken systems.
Get real and meaningful psychological evaluations and background checks – police in some nations have to pass a more stringent test to carry pepper spray than any police department in the US, or the US military, have in place. As a direct and possibly deliberate consequence, our military and paramilitary personnel simply cannot be assumed to be fighting in the interests of the people of this country.
We’ve all seen the photos. This destruction and burning and looting is largely the behavior of outsiders; white people taking advantage of the situation both to enrich themselves by looting under cover of the protests, and to provide excuses for uncontrolled fascist elements within our military and police forces as plausible cover for killing more black, brown, and poor people without fear of sanction.
The so-called “accellerationists” who have committed to ensuring that, any time a marginalized community stands up and demands justice, construct a narrative of criminality and destruction that white bigots and affluent oligarchs who benefit from our broken system to validate their bigotry and injustice retroactively.
They are successful in this for two reasons: because people like you are easily manipulated in your banal, self-serving ignorance, and because people like you are more than happy to passive-aggressively reap the benefits of pretending to believe this destruction is the act of the oppressed.
This game has gone on for decades on an endless loop since the very dawn of the civil rights era, and we the people are saying ‘no more.’”
And that, “President” Trump, is your solution. No more.
Get the dirt out of your law enforcement and your military.
Get the dirt out of your government and administration.
Ideally, resign now and take your VP and cabinet with you; Nancy Pelosi isn’t a great deal of improvement, but she’ll only be president for a few months.
You can’t arrest 100 million of us, sir, and you would be well-advised not to try.
If you think that targeting and “making an example of” the author of this document will get you anywhere, you may rest assured that this author is more than prepared to allow his real name to be used as a rallying cry for justice and civil disobedience from coast to coast.
It is time for you and everyone who thinks like you to understand that whether black, red, brown, white, or any other color, Americans are done living in a nation of empty platitudes and broken promises.
Traditionally, this type of document is accompanied by a list of “demands.”
Here are our demands:
-Universal single payer health care, without regard for citizenship status.
-Universal basic income WITH a federal job guarantee, under which the federal government becomes the “employer of last resort.” Involuntary unemployment is a function of profiteering by fascist capitalist oligarchs who are willing to sacrifice the lives of others for their own enrichment. It must end.
-The abolition of “right to work laws” which do exactly the opposite of ensuring anyone’s right to work.
-Publicly funded higher education.
-Robust and effective social welfare programs to include child care, education, employment training and counseling, parenting skills training, and life skills training including fiscal education.
-A requirement that functional proficiency in media, political, and economic literacy be demonstrated to graduate high school.
-The creation of a publicly funded non-partisan media source to serve as the primary source of government information, to be overseen and managed day to day by a coalition of well-known communicators, political scientists, and other experts in propaganda to strip ALL bias from official information before it is broadcast.
-Federal charges of treason filed against anyone willfully and knowingly attempting to minimize public perception of the impact and risks of the coronavirus.
-Reform of whistleblower laws to ensure they have teeth, and particularly to ensure that a whistleblower, acting in good faith, is not identified to the public, ever.
In the end, Mr. “President,” the simple reality is that “AntiFa” isn’t a thing.
You can’t end it, you can’t arrest it, and you can’t silence it.
Nor, in any decent nation, would the attempt even be made.
“Antifa” means “Anti-Fascism.” The only position that opposes that is fascism. In the end, there is no “organization” that you can “declare terrorists.” You, sir, and yours, are the terrorists, and your victims are done putting up with it. America is not, in spite of having an openly admitted fascist as “president,” a fascist nation.
We’ve had wars about this.
The fascists are 0-2.
Please, Mr. “President” – let’s not try to make it 0-3? Because it will never, ever be 1-2, and none of us wants to see the death toll from your attempt to make it so.
Best Regards, “AntiFa.”

A message from the State of Hawaii

Saturday, May 23, 2020

Good Morning! It’s Saturday! It’s Memorial Day Weekend!
STAYTHEFUCKHOME! Don’t go anywhere. Don’t BBQ with friends!
Don’t Travel! Don’t visit the Beach! Just STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

We fell asleep around midnight, woke up around 3:00am
And we binge watched the rest of the first season of “Lilyhammer” on Netflix,
and then didn’t go back to bed until about 9:00am.
And then we didn’t sleep well, and the dogs were barking,
and the gardener did come today to do more work in the front.

12:45pm: It’s a beautiful day today. Happy Saturday.
We ate 2 hotdogs and a dill pickle for lunch and drank an iced espresso.

Pier 45 in San Francisco burned today.

Happy Sunday! He’ll be here all week.

2:30am: We fell asleep from exhaustion and woke up at 12:30am. We didn’t eat dinner. We were only up briefly, and then went back to sleep.
4:00am: We are awake again. We woke up, we were up for a bit and then we went back to bed.
8:30am: And we are awake again. The dogs barking woke us up, and the dogs barking again kept us up. And now the dogs are barking again….. and now we have a headache.

And it’s going to be HOT (and beautiful) today
and even hotter all this week here in the SFV:

NOTE: We were all over the place emotionally this weekend, and this Blog Post probably reflects that condition. We don’t go back and edit, re-edit, after we post usually, so please enjoy my misery and anger mixed with weekend entertainment….

Human impact on the environment, due to overpopulation, overconsumption, pollution, and proliferation of technology, has pushed the planet into a new geological epoch known as the Anthropocene. There are just too many people for the environment to sustain! The depletion of non-renewable natural resources is a major problem.

Culling the herd: (cull means to select or gather)
1. Literally, to separate or remove (and usually kill) inferior animals out of a herd so as to reduce numbers or remove undesirable traits from the group as a whole.
(When population densities get too high, they can become diseased)
“Removing some animals from a population creates more space and food for those that are left, and can disrupt social controls on breeding. Survival, reproduction and immigration all increase as a result, and the population quickly rebounds.”

43000+ Reported Cases and 2040+ Reported Deaths in Los Angeles County
90600+ Reported Cases and 3700+ Reported Deaths in California

97000+ REPORTED DEATHS of UNITED STATES CITIZENS as of Sunday, May 24, 2020
343000+ REPORTED DEATHS WORLDWIDE (and the actual number is higher)

Good morning. Well, not really. The Little Boy had a problem this morning sometime between 3:00am and 7:00am, and we woke up and had to take care of him. He may need to go to the vet, but because of the holiday, it would be the Emergency Animal Clinic today…. so we are watching him, he is active and happy, he had a bath, and ate chicken and rice for breakfast, and he wants to play, and we want him to rest. We don’t take chances, and if he gets any worse we’ll take him to the Doctor.

USA! USA! USA!

The United States flag is in mourning until noon on Memorial Day (4 U.S. Code §7m). When in mourning it should be half-staffed or, in the case of angled flagpoles or other cases where half-staffing is not practical, adorned with a mourning drape, as below, where the tail ends are as long as the flag. All other flags should be half-staffed (or not flown) until noon.

Baking Banana Bread! So, a little time in the kitchen, we had bananas on the brink, so we whipped up a loaf, baked in hour and it’s really good.

And Cornbread too! We meant to make it last week to go with the chili, but the milk was bad and we didn’t want to go to the market. So since we were baking, we decided to try a thin cornbread, rather than muffins or the cake-style we usually make. And it turned out okay, needs a little work, but it will be good with the last of the chili or a little butter and jam later this week.

 

4:30pm: Good afternoon. Well we fell asleep and got woken up by our cell phone.
Call it an incomplete nap. We checked on the dogs and everything seems to be cool.
It’s HOT outside. They weren’t kidding when they said there was going to be a heat wave.

7:00pm: And the dogs are fed. And we were outside. And we took care of fixing most of the morning stuff. And the Little Boy is doing fine. We are still checking him out for any problems, but he has been fine all day and we are changing his food until he’s better.

Let’s say you woke up with a terrible cough, a fever, and severe body aches. Immediately, you rush to the doctor and unfortunately, you’re diagnosed with COVID-19. For the last two weeks, you’ve been unaware that you were infected and you’ve ignored “the rules.” You’ve gotten together with some close friends for pizza, had a few people over, even visited a park and a beach. You figured, “I don’t feel sick. I have the right to keep living my normal life. No one can tell me what to do.”
With your diagnosis, you spend the next few days at home on the couch, feeling pretty crappy; but then you’re well again because you’re young, healthy and strong. Lucky you. But your best friend caught it from you during a visit to your house, and because she didn’t know she was contagious, she visited her 82-year-old grandfather, who uses oxygen tanks daily to help him breathe because he has COPD and heart failure. Now, he’s dead.
Your co-worker, who has asthma, caught it too, during your little pizza get-together. Now, he’s in the ICU, and he’s spread it to a few others in his family, too–but they won’t know that for another couple of weeks yet.
The cashier at the restaurant where you picked up the pizza carried the infection home to his wife, who has MS, which makes her immunosuppressed. She’s not as lucky as you, so she’s admitted to the hospital because she’s having trouble breathing. She may need to be placed in a medically-induced coma and intubated; she may not get to say goodbye to her loved ones. She may die surrounded by machines, with no family at her bedside.
All because you couldn’t stand the inconvenience of a mask; of staying home; of changing your familiar routines for just a little while. Because you have the right, above all others rights, to continue living your normal life and no one, I mean no one, has the right to tell you what to do.

The dogs are fed and we were outside and we got the newspapers.
We woke up and setup this Blog Post, and then we went back to bed.
And then we woke up again and took care of them.
And it’s Tuesday. And it looks like it’s going to be a nice day outside.

We ate a toasted egg bagel with cream cheese, some red grapes, some peanut M&Ms, and drank an espresso. The gardeners are here again working in the yard, so the dogs are napping in the other room right now.

Okay, who’s for breakfast?

1:00pm It’s a beautiful day! Windy and warm outside. And we’ve been up for hours.
Well we woke up very early and took care of the dogs, we ate 2 hotdogs with mustard for breakfast, and then we went back to sleep for a little bit, and then we’ve been wandering around the house and office for a couple hours…. dogs got fed and we’ve been outside and they were chillin’ in the office.

No gardeners, but the construction continues across the street, and they are still framing, so it’s guys hammering, nail guns, and other woodworking noise. They’re going fast, but it still sucks. Background noise when the windows are open to enjoy the fresh air and it a beautiful day like today.

We took the dogs outside to run around and play and do some business.
And then we put them down for a nap so we could do a little cooking in the kitchen.
We made a pot of chili wit beans:

97470031_3678724315487441_2995963757403832320_o

Chili wit Beans!

2:00pm: Ate a bowl of our chili topped with cheese for lunch. And it was good.

97965846_3678934658799740_3129665204565049344_o

Life is just a bowl of chili (with cheese)

And Peanut M&Ms for “dinner”. That’s right, no real food for dinner. We didn’t eat.
We didn’t do sh*t. We hung out in the home office and with the dogs. The dogs got fed and played with. We slept a little probably, we don’t even remember right now.
We surfed the interweb with the TV on until we fell asleep and actually slept for real….
And then it was Thursday morning.

40800+ Reported Cases

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?

Thursday, May 21, 2020 – Red Nose Day! International Burger Day!

THERE WAS A MALL SHOOTING IN GLENDALE, ARIZONA LAST NIGHT!
A guy with an assault rifle shot 3 people…. guess the quarantine is over in AZ.
And there was a “Terrorist Attack” at a military base in Texas too. WTF?

quarantine-flag-300x200

Seriously, 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? HAVE WE FLATTENED THE CURVE?
15 Days? 30 Days? 60 DAYS? FORCED LOCKDOWN/QUARANTINE!
Do you know anyone who got sick with CoronaVirus?
Do you know anyone who was hospitalized with CoronaVirus?
Do you know anyone who died from CoronaVirus?

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!
There’s no testing. There’s no vaccine. People are dying everyday from this disease!
The CoronaVirus is still spreading! People are infected without knowing they are!
“Social Distancing” and Masks/Gloves are not a guarantee of immunity!

WE HAVE DEFINITELY NOT LEARNED FROM HISTORY!

YOU REALLY DO NOT KNOW! HAVE YOU BEEN TESTED?
ZERO CONTACT IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE SAFE!

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)

REMEMBER to DISINFECT and SANITIZE frequently-touched surfaces like:
cell phones, computers (keyboard & mouse), door handles, faucets, keys. credit cards, wallets, purses, tables, desks, countertops, light switches, knobs, dials, etc.

STAY HOME! – STAY HEALTHY!
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!

WEARING A MASK DOESN’T PROTECT YOU 100%

5:00am: We woke up too early again. Still dark outside and a little chilly too.
Checked on the dogs, who are sleeping soundly, and made a cup of espresso. Filled in some blank space in this Blog Post and now it’s ThrowbackThursday morning again.

It’s going to be HOT again this next week.
It’s beautiful outside, day and night, when it gets HOT, but during the day it’s not fun.

12:00Noon: We fell back asleep this morning, and we woke up and took care of the dogs. They got fed, and loved, and played with, and they were outside.
We ate a toasted egg bagel with cream cheese and we’ve had a couple cups of espresso.
And we took care of more stuff around the house this morning.
And we had to fix the Little Girl’s face, so she had a mini-grooming session.
And we also did a little clean-up on the Little Boy too. And they both look better now.

Fred Willard passed over last Friday.
Rest in Peace and May the Four Winds blow him safely home.
He was so funny. And everyone loved Fred. He always made us laugh.
Jimmy Kimmel did a great tribute show for him (from home).

CORONAVIRUS! Part 34 (Sat-Sun-Mon)

CORONAVIRUS! Part 34 (Saturday-Sunday-Monday)

Saturday, May 16, 2020

98350011_10218969404523809_551677438090805248_n

We woke up too early. The dogs got taken care of and fed.
We got dressed and went to the market.

10:00am: We put it off until today, but we went to the market this morning to replenish the food supply here at the Home Office. And it sucked. We spent a bunch of money and got almost everything we needed. They changed the layout of the market, so we were very confused, as we tried to adjust and find stuff. And there are still too many people who don’t respect “Social Distancing” and staying away! “Personal space” is 6 feet these days. And some people still haven’t figured out how to wear a mask properly. It’s a big market, and we went early on Saturday morning to avoid the crowd, but it’s still scary being around strangers…. and the lady coughing on the produce didn’t reassure us.

So we checked out, drove home, unloaded the car, put the food away, cleaned and sanitized, and took the dogs outside. It’s a beautiful day here in the SFV. The gardeners are here in the yard again and the dogs have to be inside most of the time while they’re working. So now we are going to make something to eat.

97064990_3185235428194917_8043425279466536960_o

12:34pm: We cleaned and sanitized the kitchen again. Ready for cooking….
And we ate a toasted egg bagel with cream cheese and drank an iced espresso.
And we took the dogs outside again.

4:30pm: How to make 4 hours disappear? We tried to take a nap, but only laid down for a little bit with the pups, before getting back up. Walked across the house and back a couple times. We were outside again. And we put the dogs down for a nap.
And now what?

We decided to finally watch “Lilyhammer” starring Little Steven Van Zandt on Netflix, and it’s great! We watched the first three episodes and was pleasantly distracted for a couple of hours. Does kettle corn count as dinner? Asking for a friend.

NOTE: Saturday night happened.
We hung out with the dogs. Watched TV and surfed the web.
We slept. We woke up. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Dreaming about a future ROAD TRIP!

Sunday, May 17, 2020 – SUNDAY! SUNDAY!

10:30am: We woke up and took care of the dogs. We were outside and they got fed and we were outside again. And we got the newspapers and ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a few strawberries and drank a little orange juice and an espresso.

Sunday Brunch at 12Noon
On The Menu: 2 eggs over medium, bacon, quesadilla with salsa verde, avocado, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, red grapes and an iced espresso

97104110_3671117446248128_2599783741953933312_o

Sunday Brunch!

5:45pm: We had our afternoon nap. And we woke up about a half hour ago.
6:45pm: Dogs are taken care of, so for the last hour: dogs outside, they got supper, dogs outside, playtime in the office, and now nap time. Drinking another iced espresso.

8:15am: We’re awake on Monday morning. It’s gray and a little wet outside today.
The dogs are fed and we were outside with them. And we got the newspapers.
We made an espresso and drank it. And we just wasted two hours building this Blog Post and surfing the interweb while watching morning news….

And now it is raining!
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese, a banana, and some red grapes.

1:15pm: And now the sun has come out.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

We took a shower. We did a load of laundry. We played with the dogs.
We watched TV. We surfed the interweb. We were outside with the dogs.
We almost took a nap, but didn’t. And we almost ate something, but didn’t.

We soaked our feet in hot water. And gave them a good washing too.

6:00pm: Time to feed the dogs.

We fed the dogs, we took them outside, we played with them.
The dogs like to hang out in the Home Office.
We watched TV, we surfed the interweb, we might have slept a little.

We finally got hungry and made dinner at 3:00am Tuesday morning.
On The Menu: Spicy lemon-garlic shrimp and green beans with fried rice.

There will be a “spike” in a week, and another in two weeks, and another in three weeks…. The “re-open protests”, and the premature re-opening of public spaces, are going to spread the CoronaVirus to family and friends and people they come into contact will get infected, get sick, and spread it to others.
And some people are protesting wearing masks: 90000 US Citizens have already died!

From Yale Epidemiologist, Jonathan Smith:
“As an infectious disease epidemiologist, at this point I feel morally obligated to provide some information on what we are seeing from a transmission dynamic perspective and how they apply to the social distancing measures. Like any good scientist I have noticed two things that are either not being articulated or not present in the “literature” of social media. I have also relied on my much smarter infectious disease epidemiologist friends for peer review of this post; any edits are from that peer review.
Specifically, I want to make two aspects of these measures very clear and unambiguous.
First, we are in the beginning of this epidemic’s trajectory. That means even with these distancing measures we will see cases and deaths continue to rise globally, nationally, and in our own communities in the coming weeks. This may lead some people to think that the social distancing measures are not working. They are. They may feel futile. They aren’t. You will feel discouraged. You should. This is normal in chaos. But this is normal epidemic trajectory. Stay calm. This enemy that we are facing is very good at what it does; we are not failing. We need everyone to hold the line as the epidemic inevitably gets worse.
This is not my opinion; this is the unforgiving math of epidemics for which I and my colleagues have dedicated our lives to understanding with great nuance, and this disease is no exception. I want to help the community brace for this impact. Stay strong and with solidarity knowing with absolute certainty that what you are doing is saving lives, even as people begin getting sick and dying. You may feel like giving in. Don’t.
Second, although social distancing measures have been (at least temporarily) well-received, there is an obvious-but-overlooked phenomenon when considering groups (i.e. families) in transmission dynamics. While social distancing decreases contact with members of society, it typically increases your contacts with family members /
very close friends. This small and obvious fact has surprisingly profound implications on disease transmission dynamics. Study after study demonstrates that even if there is only a little bit of connection between groups (i.e. social dinners, playdates/playgrounds, etc.), the epidemic isn’t much different than if there was no measure in place. The same underlying fundamentals of disease transmission apply, and the result is that the community is left with all of the social and economic disruption but very little public health benefit.
You should perceive your entire family to function as a single individual unit; if one person puts themselves at risk, everyone in the unit is at risk. Seemingly small social chains get large and complex with alarming geometric speed. If your son visits his girlfriend, and you later sneak over for coffee with a neighbor, your neighbor is now connected to the infected office worker that your son’s girlfriend’s mother shook hands with. This sounds silly, it’s not. This is not a joke or a hypothetical. We as epidemiologists see it borne out in the data time and time again and no one listens. Conversely, any break in that chain breaks disease transmission along that whole chain.
In contrast to hand-washing and other personal measures, social distancing measures are not about individuals, they are about societies working in unison. These measures also take a long time to see the results. It is hard (even for me) to conceptualize how on a population level, ‘one quick little get together’ can undermine the entire framework of a public health intervention, but it does. I promise you it does. I promise. I promise. I promise.
You can’t cheat it. People are already itching to cheat on the social distancing precautions just a “little”- a playdate, a haircut, or picking up a needless item at the store, etc. From a transmission dynamics standpoint, this very quickly recreates a highly connected social network that undermines all of the work the community has done so far.
Until we get a viable vaccine this unprecedented outbreak will not be overcome in one grand, sweeping gesture, rather only by the collection of individual choices our community makes in the coming months. This virus is unforgiving to choices outside the rules.
My goal in writing this is to prevent communities from getting ‘sucker-punched’ by what the epidemiological community knows will happen in the coming weeks. It will be easy to be drawn to the idea that what we are doing isn’t working and become paralyzed by fear, or to just‘cheat’ a little bit in the coming weeks. By knowing what to expect, and knowing the importance of maintaining these measures , my hope is to encourage continued community spirit, strategizing, and action to persevere in this time of uncertainty.”

By Jonahan Smith, a lecturer in Epidemiology of Microbial Diseases and Global Health at Yale University School of Public Health. His research focuses on infectious disease transmission dynamics.

6:15am: Yeah, so we’ve been up since just after 4:00am.
We took the dogs outside, made and drank an espresso
and ate the leftover cold pizza for breakfast. And the dogs are fed.

Guys, here’s a question to ask yourself.
Does my quarantine beard make me look:
a. older?
b. younger?
c. homeless?

We have been growing a beard again. A “quarantine beard” because we don’t like shaving everyday and no one is even going to see us here in solo-isolation. We grew a beard before Burning Man in summer of 2017, and that was the first time we did the beard thing. We’ve been sporting a mustache and goatee for years, but since the forced lockdown began, we are working on a serious beard again. Does it make us look older? Does it make us look younger? Does it make us look homeless?

7:00am It’s time for Energy & Commerce Committee’s Health Subcommittee hearing!
“Why is this the first official hearing we are having….?” – Rep. Michael Burgess (R-Texas)

Dr. Richard “Rick” Bright (aka “whistleblower”) testimony
A DOCTOR of physical science, biology, immunology, and molecular pathogenesis.
Former Director of the Department of Homeland Security Biomedical Advanced Research & Development Authority – the “Federal Vaccine Chief” – was fired.
TRUTH. Listen to Dr. Fauci and other scientists! Educate the Public.
Essential equipment and supplies! Equitable distribution of supplies!
Our medical supply stockpile was insufficient! There was no plan in January!
TESTING! Contact tracing. We need a comprehensive national plan!
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT MUST PROTECT THE PUBLIC HEALTH!

We took a break for the International Spy Museum webinar at 9:00am
“Curator’s Corner: The U-2 Spyplane Shootdown” with Francis Gary Powers Jr.
Gary is the author of Letters from a Soviet Prison (2017) and Spy Pilot (2019)

11:00am: Back for the end of the hearing and watching the recap and review now.

NO VACCINE UNTIL 2021, if at all…. NO MIRACLE CURE! NOT ENOUGH TESTING!
WE NEED HONEST COMMUNICATION AND A REAL NATIONAL STRATEGY!
Oh, the FBI seized Republican Senator Richard Burr’s cell phone yesterday over his alleged ILLEGAL INSIDER TRADING STOCK SALES after receiving classified information while lying to the public about the CoronaVirus Pandemic and will step down from the Senate Intelligence Committee during the investigation.

(Not a Doctor) Trump tries to counter Dr. Fauci’s Senate testimony.
Trump wants to sacrifice your children today! SCHOOLS CANNOT OPEN IN FALL!
US Citizens trust Dr. Fauci more than they trust Trump! So he’ll probably fire Fauci soon.
Trump and Alex Azar called Dr. Rick Bright (the new whistleblower) exposing the Trump administration’s failings a “disgruntled employee” while he was still testifying.

Retail sales fell in the US by 16.4% in April, the biggest two-month decline on record.

Wow, Thursday got away from us.
They officially cancelled the Los Angeles County Fair (we knew they would).
We watched too much news, and it made us angry at the morons.
WTF Wisconsin and Michigan? DARWIN WAS RIGHT.
The stupid people will eliminate themselves from the gene pool.
And of course they’ll infect other people who aren’t as stupid as they are too.
Hey Mike Pence, WHAT HAPPENED TO “STOP THE SPREAD IN 15 DAYS”? 

We ate leftover cold pizza for breakfast. We watched the subcommittee hearing, then we watched the Cold War Museum webinar, then more news, then we went back to bed and fell asleep. And we slept for a little bit, waking up in the afternoon for the dogs (barking). We went out in public to go the bank, but there was no one home…. (no people at the branch). So we just went home and ordered Thai food delivery for dinner.
On The Menu: Thai BBQ chicken with pad Thai and Mee Grob noodles.

The dogs were taken care of. They got fed and played with, lots of love. The Little Girl got a bath. We watched TV and surfed the interweb and fell asleep after midnight.

Do You Think We Are Ready to Re-Open Los Angeles?

The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health provides public health services to Los Angeles County and is committed to protecting & improving the health of the over 10 million residents.  Barbara Ferrer is the Director.

Many African-Americans have underlying health conditions (high blood pressure, asthma, heart disease, diabetes, etc.) that puts them at greater risk for serious illness and complications from CoronaVirus. There is a disgusting history of unequal access to healthcare and healthy living conditions that makes it hard to prevent/control these health problems.

TRIGGER-WARNING

And we woke up around 4:00am again. And we went back to bed for a little bit.
And then we were up and outside with the dogs, and they got fed, and now it’s 8:30am.
We spent an hour working on this Blog Post and we were outside with the dogs.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD): a mental health condition that’s triggered by a traumatic or terrifying event – either experiencing it or witnessing it. Symptoms include flashbacks, nightmares or unwanted memories of the trauma, severe anxiety, depression, avoidance of situations that bring back memories of the trauma, anger, insomnia, heightened reactions, panic attacks, as well as uncontrollable thoughts about the event.

The condition may last months or years, with triggers that can bring back memories of the trauma accompanied by intense emotional and physical reactions.

YOU ARE THE PROBLEM! YOU TRIGGERED OUR PTSD!
THIS IS THE ONLY HELP WE NEED:

WE NEED YOU TO NOT TRIGGER US! IT’S NOT THAT HARD!
WE NEED YOU TO NOT TRIGGER US! IT’S NOT THAT HARD!

1:00pm: We are better now, but still on edge.
2:00pm: We did some more Spring cleaning and other menial stuff in the Home Office to “unfocus” and to accomplish something today….
4:00pm: whatever.

We tried to sleep and didn’t. We don’t know what we did… until we surfed into the

Cheeseburger on a toasted egg bagel with a dill pickle at midnight

We ate. It was very good. Then we hung out for a bit, and then we fell asleep.

Life is like bowling:
Strikes and Gutters all the time.
Let the good times roll!

CORONAVIRUS! Part 32 (Monday, Monday and Tues-Wed)

CORONAVIRUS! Part 32
(Monday, Monday and Tuesday-Wednesday)

Monday, May 11, 2020

8:00am: Good Morning! It is Monday. Monday, Monday.
(Read our previous Blog Posts about Monday!)

95968087_10158201463924326_2873284051022643200_n

We didn’t sleep. The dogs slept. We were up all night again.
And we woke the dogs up this morning, and went outside.
And they got fed, and went outside. And we got the newspapers.
We didn’t eat dinner, just some tortilla chips and banana bread.
We drank a double espresso this morning, so we might be awake.
We went back to bed with the pups and woke up and got the mail.
And then we were outside.

The construction continues across the street so there’s a bunch of noise when they’re working. They are moving fast, because now they are framing the new house, so there’s a lot of hammering. Also, it seems like there are always landscape technicians operating their noisy blowers and other gas powered equipment in the neighborhood when we are outside.

On The Menu: Mac’n’Cheese with Bacon for lunch

Mac’n’Cheese with Bacon

BREAKING NEWS! (on Monday)
Trump just STORMED OUT of a press jerkoff after a clash with a female reporter.
96817798_749856518885218_873706870399827968_n

10:00pm: Where did Monday go? It was a nice day here and not hot for a change.
Dogs got taken care of. We had lunch, we had a nap, we were outside. We had a nap. They got fed dinner. We were outside. They were chillin’ in the office, now they are napping. Tonights first movie feature was the Guy Ritchie film “Snatch”. – which we have seen more than a few times actually – And so now we are thinking about dinner.

96286435_3208058435871444_4827931935244288000_n

On The Menu: Toasted egg bagel with hummus and cucumber, dill pickle, avocado, celery & carrots, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and cherries

Tuesday, May 12, 2020 –
Breaking News: PUTIN STAFFERS HOSPITALIZED WITH CORONAVIRUS!

Good morning! It’s TravelTuesday and you’re not going anywhere.
It’s also TikiTuesday, so how about a classic MaiTai for breakfast?
(“I think, I think I need a drink.”)
77336300_3262787860414424_2335768636230205440_n

And so it’s just after 7:00am, the dogs are fed and have been outside on both sides.
We got the newspapers and now they’re chillin’. We are going to do chores now.

WAIT! IMPORTANT SENATE TESTIMONY HAPPENING TUESDAY MORNING!
7:30am: Dr. Fauci, Dr. Redfield, and other Health Officials
are testifying before the Senate via the interweb
about re-opening the country from Self-Quarantine!
And it’s like a bad “SNL At Home” sketch….
BUT THIS IS REAL!
82000+ Reported DEATHS in the United States!
Dr. Fauci just told Senator Bernie Sanders that the number is higher
(deaths not reported as caused by CoronaVirus)
the “consequences could be really serious” with re-opening too soon,
and that we should expect another wave later this year. (Fall and Winter)

97355017_10163569631520298_108194095951773696_n

FUCK YOU RAND PAUL!

p.s. THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC IS NOT UNDER CONTROL!

THE COUNTRY IS NOT READY TO RE-OPEN!
There’s no testing. There’s no vaccine. People are dying everyday from this disease!
The CoronaVirus is still spreading! People are infected without knowing they are!
“Social Distancing” and Masks/Gloves are not a guarantee of immunity!

10:30am: We took a break from the Senate hearings and took the dogs outside. Then we cleaned up the dog poop. And then we cleaned and sanitized some other stuff too.
And we made and ate a cheese quesadilla with salsa verde.

Breaking News! New York Governor Andrew Cuomo Demands Federal Help!
And he is tearing the Trump administration and Federal response a new a**hole too!

3:30pm: We ate. We watched some news. We took the dogs outside.
Then we spent some time grooming the Little Girl. And back outside again.
The gardener worked in the front all morning and now he’s working in the back.
The dogs are down for a nap, because they alert and bark at the gardener.

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

7:00pm: We showered and slept for a little. Woke up tired.
Dogs outside. Dogs fed. Dogs outside. Chillin’ in the Home Office.
A little more TV and interweb time now. Maybe it’s time for food….
right after “Two and A Half Men” and a little Neil Young LIVE.
And we got caught up watching “The Happy Days of Garry Marshall”
As a child of Television, Tuesday night “Primetime” on ABC
was “Happy Days” and “Laverne & Shirley” and then “Mork & Mindy” on Thursday.

On The Menu: Bacon, banana bread, and stuff. Dill pickle, cucumber, avocado, celery & carrots, strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, cherries, and an espresso to drink

97816807_3655569044469635_3517162045977919488_o

We ate and watched Facebook live and youtube videos.
We watched “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” again (recorded).

SERIOUSLY WTF FACEBOOK?
This shit in our newsfeed creeps us out.

Wednesday, May 13, 2020 – It’s a SPECIAL DAY JUST FOR US!

We fell asleep and woke up around 1:30am.

We used to be the wholesale and catering manager for Noah’s Bagels in Studio City.
So, sometimes at 3:00am in the morning the urge to bake comes over us:

97088514_3656262767733596_4808317047236722688_o

Chocolate Chip Cookies at 4:00am in the morning!

9:30am: We fell asleep again. Woke up, took care of the dogs morning stuff. We were all outside, and they got fed, we were outside again, and we got the newspapers and the mail. We were going to go to the market this morning, but maybe we’ll go tomorrow.

Get Ready! Today is the Day! Fighter Jets will flyover California!
Let’s waste some more taxpayer money on a public relations media stunt.
America Strong! Stroke that patriotism with a military demonstration!
USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!USA!
Such a waste. Hope all you doctors and nurses and health workers are inspired!
They should spend the money on more Personal Protective Equipment instead!

97984156_10158394078407370_4809417014131032064_n

NOTE: WEDNESDAY MORNING LOS ANGELES FLYOVER CANCELLED!
The 144th Fighter Wing is a unit of the California Air National Guard based in Fresno.
They will only fly as far south as Santa Barbara today.
Air Force Thunderbirds are SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA.

12:00Noon: NEWS. (suddenly we are stressing hard again)
Los Angeles County Beaches reopen today with restrictions.
Cal-State Universities cancel most fall classes (remote education only!) today.
Hollywood Bowl 2020 season was cancelled today for the first time in 98 years.

We did a load of laundry. We were outside with the dogs. We don’t know what else.
We cleaned a little, and we watched TV and surfed the interweb, and the day went by.

GROCERY & FOOD PRICES ARE SPIKING! BIGGEST PRICE JUMP IN HISTORY!
And more food chain supply problems are expected!
This nation is dependent on immigrant laborers and foreign workers who pick, process, package, and transport our food. They are “essential workers”, not expendable labor!

The CoronaVirus Pandemic has now killed more people in the United States,
in less than three months, than the 58220 Americans who died in two decades during the Vietnam Conflict. 84000+ United States Citizens are NOW DEAD!

34400+ Reported Cases and 1659 Reported Death in Los Angeles County!
71000+ Reported Cases and 2900+ Reported Deaths in California!
1420000+ Reported Cases and 84700+ Reported Deaths in the United States!

“The 15 (cases in the US) within a couple of days
is going to be down to close to zero….
We’re going very substantially down, not up.”
~ Donald Trump on February 26, 2020

WHO (World Health Organization):
No one “can predict when or if” this virus is going to go away.

6:00pm: And we are awake again. We had our afternoon nap with the dogs.
Then we took them outside and then they got fed. And then we were outside again. Now they are chillin’. We only ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and a chocolate chip cookie earlier today. So we are hungry and thinking about dinner now.
Let’s order a pizza!
On The Menu: Large pizza with sausage and meatball delivered.

96585905_3659455927414280_3761025882408353792_o

Pizzatime! (and we don’t have to cook anything)

We ate. We played with the dogs. We were outside.
We watched TV and played on the interweb.
And we fell asleep and woke up and it was Thursday morning just after 4:00am.

And so we made it through the Wednesday.

Screen Shot 2020-05-12 at 11.07.42

83000+ REPORTED DEATH IN THE UNITED STATES as of May 13, 2020

CoronaVirus hits the Federal Government!
Trump’s valet, Pence’s staffer – Stephen Miller’s wife!
SO EVERYONE IN THE INNER CIRCLE HAS BEEN EXPOSED!
They are willing to sacrifice members of the Secret Service and their staffers!
EVERYONE IN THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS POOL AND
EVERYONE IN THE MANY RECENT PHOTO OPS HAVE ALSO BEEN EXPOSED!

And speaking of phony Photo Ops by the Trump Administration,
In Case You Missed It, Jimmy Kimmel “apologized” to Trump and Pence again,
but this was a truly AWESOME burn session highlighting their failures!
THEY MUST APOLOGIZE TO ALL OF US FOR SO MANY CRIMES!

CAN YOU TRUST THE INFO FROM THE CDC AND FDA?
Trump’s medical experts aren’t telling you the truth.

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 people not to wear masks?
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?

“This blindsided the world.” ~ Donald Trump on March 9, 2020

“I take no responsibility.” ~ Donald Trump on March 13, 2020 

Trump and the Republicans in Congress are a Clear and Present Danger
to Public Health and Safety! TRUMP’S LIES ARE KILLING U.S. CITIZENS!

Some key rules for State of California restaurant re-opening for dine in service:
(ripped from a friend who ripped it from EATER SF)

Some important highlights to note:
    • Restaurants must “provide disposable menus to guests and make menus available digitally so that customers can view on a personal electronic device, if possible. If disposable menus cannot be provided, properly disinfect menus before and after customer use.”
    • Restaurants must also “discontinue pre-setting tables with napkins, cutlery, glassware, food ware, etc. These should be supplied individually to customers as needed. Do not leave card stands, flyers, napkin holders, or other items on tables.”
    • Same goes for condiments: “Suspend use of shared food items such as condiment bottles, salt and pepper shakers, etc. and provide these foods in single serve containers, if possible. Where this is not possible, shared items such as condiment bottles, shakers, etc., should be supplied as needed to customers and disinfected after each use.”
    • “Takeout containers must be filled by customers and available only upon request.”
    • And tablecloths might become a thing of the past: “Dirty linens used at dining tables such as tablecloths and napkins should be removed after each customer use and transported from dining areas in sealed bags. Employees should wear gloves when handling dirty linens.”
    • Restaurants must also “discontinue tableside food preparation and presentation such as food item selection carts and conveyor belts, guacamole preparation, etc.”
    • And forget grabbing a mint on your way out: “Do not leave out after-meal mints, candies, snacks, or toothpicks for customers. Offer them with the check or provide only on request.”
    • Brewpubs, breweries, bars, pubs, craft distilleries, and wineries must remain closed if they don’t offer sit-down dining, but they can reopen if they contract with another vendor to…serve dine-in meals.”

NOTE: STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

BREAKING NEWS!
The Miami Herald reports that CoronaVirus was in Florida in DECEMBER 2019!

WARNING! WARNING! WARNING!
The CoronaVirus has MUTATED AGAIN!
  • The coronavirus that emerged in Wuhan, China, has mutated and the new, dominant strain spreading across the U.S. appears to be even more contagious, according to a new study.

  • The new strain began spreading in Europe in early February before migrating to other parts of the world, including the U.S., becoming the dominant form of the virus across the globe by the end of March, researchers at the Los Alamos National Laboratory wrote.

  • If the coronavirus doesn’t subside in the summer like the seasonal flu, it could mutate further and potentially limit the effectiveness of the coronavirus vaccines being developed by scientists, the researchers warned.

5:30am: Up All Night (again)

12:45pm: We are tired. No sleep. Crushing anxiety and just a little stress. And we are alone with the dogs, which is fine. Did the usual morning stuff. Take the dogs outside, feed the dogs, play with the dogs, get the newspapers, get the mail, and interweb time.
We almost went to the market early this morning, but we didn’t want to go out into public and deal with other people, so we didn’t get dressed, and we stayedthefuckhome.

NOTE: We have a list of stuff to get when we go shopping, but nothing is an immediate need. We have plenty of food and drink here to go at least another week if we had to, so we’ll wait until tomorrow. STAY HOME STAY SAFE!

7:30pm: We slept a little. Took an afternoon nap with the dogs.
And they’ve been outside, played, had their supper and went back outside again.
We just made an iced espresso (just what we needed right now)
and it’s time to think about dinner, or food, or something to eat.
We had a toasted bagel with cream cheese and an espresso for breakfast.
And we just ate a small dill pickle. But that’s all we ate today. (surprise!)

NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS. Or, watching the news is just MORE BAD NEWS!
The Local News is TOTAL SHIT! Except for the high speed pursuits…. and there were three today, but they didn’t go long or far, and didn’t get very good coverage.
People are going stir crazy, and the criminals are wanting to get back out there.
Can’t even watch or listen to Trump, even the soundbites make me furiously angry.
There’s this clear pattern of DOUBLESPEAK, BLATANT LIES, FULL-ON MAKE-BELIEVE, AND TOTAL DISHONESTY that is a constant whenever he or his cronies appear.
We don’t trust his doctors, the CDC, the FDA, the “CoronaVirus Task Force”, or anyone else connected to Trump, his crooked administration. or the Republicans in Congress.

11:15pm: We fell asleep again sometime around 9:00pm,
and we just woke up again, and now it’s time for dinner after midnight.
On the Menu: NY Steak, sautéed onions, steamed broccoli and carrots, and brown rice.

Dinner at Midnight

Thursday, May 7, 2020

7:00am: We have been up all night/morning again. WideAWAKE.
And we just had an espresso to start the day.
And the dogs are fed and happy. They’ve been outside twice. They’re here in the office driving me crazy with licking, scratching, itching and dog stuff this morning.
We thought about going to the market again this morning
and then we decided we still have enough food for today, so maybe tomorrow.

1:00pm:  We went back to bed and woke up at 10:00am. We got the mail and brought in the trashcans.  Now we are hanging out with dogs on a HOT Thursday afternoon and thinking about lunch. Steaming rockin’ LIVE MUSIC performed by James Intveld on fb right now!

We took an afternoon nap, woke up and then the dogs out. And then we went back to bed. We woke up and the the dogs got fed supper. Instead of cooking, we ordered dinner.
On The Menu: Delivery from Maria’s Italian Kitchen – Pepperoni pizza, chicken and broccoli pesto pasta, a Caesar salad and fruit punch Gatorade to drink.

Trump was briefed about the Coronavirus Threat 4 months ago!
He called it a hoax, a conspiracy theory, and then ignored and lied about it!
TOTAL FAILURE! Trump fired the NSC Pandemic Team in 2018!

“In January 2020, the Trump administration was advised that immediate action was required to stop the spread of COVID-19. According to NIAID Director Dr. Anthony Fauci, “there was a lot of pushback” to this advice. President Trump declined to act until March 16th. Epidemiologists now estimate that, had mitigation measures been implemented one week earlier, 60% of American COVID-19 deaths would have been avoided.”

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?

Trump and the Republicans in Congress are a Clear and Present Danger

Tuesday, May 5, 2020 – It’s Cinco de Mayo! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!

2:30am: We ate the chili dogs and fell asleep for a bit.
And when we woke up it was Tuesday morning around 1:00am!
We took the dogs out again and we are back in the Home Office.

11:30am: No one told me the gardeners were coming on Tuesday at 8:00am!
Of course, we were already awake, the dogs had already been outside and were fed.
So we got the newspapers and said “Good Morning” to the guys in the driveway.
They will be working in the backyard most of the day doing the hard labor stuff.
We had juice, an espresso, and a toasted bagel with cream cheese this morning.
We got the mail and we took the dogs out again a
nd now they’re asleep here in the Home Office.
Yeah, we’re hungry, and we could takea nap.
It’s a beautiful day today and it’s going to get HOT later.

96423773_3292802687399325_4705134396435333120_n

2:15pm: Well, we didn’t eat, but we did take a nap for a little while.
And now it’s HOT and there’s a Hot Wind blowing. (Earthquake weather?)


And the day went by. So, we fed the dogs and we were outside in the sun.
The gardeners did a nice job clearing the backyard of stuff
and they pruned one tree all the way down to the sticks.

8:00am: Who needs to sleep? So HERE’S A SUNDAY MORNING RANT.
When we finally get tired enough to fall asleep…. there’s an earthquake.
Earthquakes happen here. Something you can’t control. You just live with them.
But there are things that can be controlled, and if it’s a problem, they can be FIXED.
BARKING DOGS ALL MORNING AGAIN! WTF? 
You would think with all the “STOP YOUR DOG FROM BARKING” gadgets,
YOU MIGHT USE THEM TO STOP THE DOGS FROM BARKING!
OR MAYBE TAKE THE TIME TO PROPERLY TRAIN THE DOGS NOT TO BARK!
YES – WE ARE TALKING DIRECTLY TO YOU! WTF IS WRONG WITH YOU?
WHY CAN’T YOU CONTROL THE DOGS?
WHY WON’T YOU TAKE THE TIME TO TRAIN THEM?
DOG BARKING IS NOT A PROBLEM WHEN THEY ARE ALONE WITH US!

THE “BOSS” SAYS:
STOP LICKING YOUR FINGERS
WHEN YOU ARE EATING WITH OTHER PEOPLE!

We can’t believe an adult needs to be told this. 
It is fucking disgusting! No one wants to see or hear you lick your fingers!
AND NO IT IS NOT OKAY! DIDN’T YOUR MOTHER TEACH YOU MANNERS?
Don’t handle serving implements after you have licked your fingers!
Don’t put your hands in the food after you have licked your fingers
(OR AT ALL)!

Don’t eat from the communal food containers!
USE A FUCKING PLATE OR BOWL!

How about a little common decency and consideration for the health of others? 
AND GO WASH YOUR FUCKING HANDS AGAIN! WHAT THE FUCK?
REMINDER: THERE’S A CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC!

Okay, just needed to get that out. Maybe, that’s why we’re so mad.
(20 more minutes of selected and uncontrolled expletives mumbled into the air)

The Ramones shouted
“I want to be sedated!”
Listen to them sing

11:00am And CALM is restored. And so Good Morning!
We just cleaned and sanitized the kitchen again.
It’s a beautiful day today now!
And we ate a dill pickle and a toasted egg bagel with cream cheese.
And we drank a glass of juice and made an iced espresso.

4:45pm: We were outside with the dogs and then we all took a nap.
And awake again, and outside again with the dogs, and now it’s interweb time!92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

8:15pm: Dogs are fed and we were outside.
And we made food. Then we took a shower.
On The Menu: Matzah Brei (fried matzah)
95573255_3631385953554611_5704531088160849920_o

We sorted through some of our new old toys that we acquired over the last two years.

May 3rd is also the birthday of the historic El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood!

95298618_3628261700533703_568510024809185280_n

The El Capitan Theatre and Hollywood Boulevard from Hollywood and Highland

Completed in 1926, the El Capitan Theatre and Office Building is the third of four major theatres constructed by prominent real estate developer C. E. Toberman, known as the “Father of Hollywood.” The six-story building was designed in the elaborate Spanish Baroque style by the renowned firm of Morgan, Walls, & Clements, who incorporated retail and office space into the upper floors. Noted theatre architect G. Albert Lansburgh designed the elaborate interior. The El Capitan Theatre opened as a playhouse and was one of the premier dramatic stages in the area throughout the 1920s and most of the 1930s, hosting over 120 plays. The 1,550-seat theatre didn’t screen its first movie until 1941, when it hosted the world premiere of Citizen Kane.

El_Capitan_1926

El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood 1926 (Water and Power archive)

The building was remodeled in the modern style, and reopened on March 18, 1942 as the Hollywood Paramount Theatre. In 1989 the Walt Disney Company entered into a lease agreement with the Pacific Circuit for the Paramount and the smaller Crest Theatre in Westwood. These theaters became Disney’s flagship houses. They spent $14 million on a complete renovation of the Paramount, restoring much of the building’s original decor as well as the theater’s original name. El Capitan reopened in 1991 with the premiere of The Rocketeer. – Water and Power archive

STAR WARS DAY! – May the 4th be with you!

1:30am: Happy Star Wars Day!
We hear coyotes howling outside in the darkness (tonight/this morning).
Just a reminder: PROTECT YOUR PETS!
We had a coyote problem in the past. 
We still have a coyote problem.
We don’t like coyotes. With the lack of traffic and public travel,
the wild animals like coyotes are roaming more freely in the area.

Breakfast at 3:00am
On The Menu: Bacon, dill pickles, tortilla chips, avocado, celery, carrots, red grapes, raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries

95321864_3632029650156908_2369181905540087808_o

10:30am: We fell asleep around 5:00am and woke up a couple hours later. The dogs were outside and they got fed and they were outside and we got the newspapers and had an espresso. Good Morning! Happy Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you!
Happy 5/4 – Happy Dave Brubeck Day! Take Five! Happy Monday!
What are you going to do?

 

We just cleaned up the dog poop and got the mail. And we had another espresso.
REMINDER: WASH YOUR HANDS! STAYTHEFUCKHOME!
REMEMBER to DISINFECT and SANITIZE frequently-touched surfaces like:
cell phones, computers (keyboard & mouse), door handles, faucets, keys. credit cards, wallets, purses, tables, desks, countertops, light switches, knobs, dials, etc.

HOT AND GETTING HOTTER!

12:15pm: And we were outside with the dogs in the backyard,
and then we ate a bowl of cereal with strawberries and milk.

95618564_3633163666710173_7010206944350699520_o

Life is just a bowl of strawberries, and cereal with milk!

6:30pm: We slept the afternoon away. And still feel tired. The dogs are fed and happy, and we were outside with them on both sides of supper. Springtime!

7:00pm: We got dressed and put on the mask and gloves, and went out to the car, and the battery was dead…. so now we are waiting for AAA. Still wearing the gloves too. FUCK!

9:30pm: Okay THANK YOU MAURICIO!!! He showed up when they said he would, he jump-started the battery (says he’s doing about 15 batteries a day, and he’s one of 4 guys working). Told us to keep it running for 45 minutes, and we were ready to go, so we drove it around the neighborhood, until the battery recharged, but didn’t get our errands done. Don’t know why the battery drained, so now we have a new project. It’s a new battery, so there shouldn’t be a problem, guess we have to check it more often, since we haven’t been out for a week…
We got home and cleaned and sanitized, took the dogs out again, played with the dogs, and now they’re chillin’ here in the Home Office with us. Now we’re thinking about food.
On The Menu: 3 Chili Dogs!

They officially cancelled the Ventura County Fair today, first time since the 1870s.

Mask are now required on the major airlines. 
ABOUT FUCKING TIME! Delta, United and jetBlue (starting today),
American, Southwest, Alaska, and Spirit (on May 11). ANOTHER WEEK? WTF?
Remember, the billion dollar corporate Airlines got a big government bailout.
Traveler safety only matters until it hurts “the bottom line” and their profits.
Traveler comfort only matters until it hurts “the bottom line” and their profits.
Bag fees! Passenger Legroom! In-flight Food Service! Snacks and Sodas!
Cancellations! Delays! Lost Baggage! Change Fees! Non-Refundable Airfare!
The Airlines should take their points and miles and shove them.

States are reopening, even though the pandemic is raging,
and so many people haven’t been tested!
Retail stores, service businesses, even restaurants are reopening!
THERE IS GOING TO BE A HUGE SPIKE! The projections are horrifying!
They are talking “business as usual” when over 68000+ US Citizens have died!

And Carnival Cruises said today they expect to sail again on August 1st….
