Saturday, July 4, 2020 – Happy Independence Day!

There’s a full moon, known as the Buck Moon, and a partial penumbral lunar eclipse visible from most of North America tonight! The eclipse begins at 11:07pm ET, with maximum lighting just before 12:30am and ends at 1:52am.

USA! USA! USA!

Happy Holiday! Happy 4th of July! StayTheFuckHome!
And we stayed home with the dogs. It was HOT outside.
We should be with friends at a BBQ, but instead we are home alone.
So we made and ate a big lunch at 3:00pm.

The Fourth of July,
This aggression will not stand!
Time to BBQ.

On The Menu: 2 Bacon Cheeseburgers and fruit & veggies

And then we fell asleep for a couple hours.
We woke up and took care of the dogs. We were outside. They got fed.
And we were outside again. And they got to chill in the office with us all night because of the holiday. Fireworks started before sunset and they were everywhere by the time it got dark.

FIREWORKS ARE ILLEGAL IN THE CITY OF LOS ANGELES!
We went out in the backyard twice and yelled at our next door neighbors to stop shooting off illegal fireworks near the trees between our property! They were shooting off skyrockets and loud bombs and little cracklers, without consideration for the neighbors, people’s pets, and the wildlife that live in the area. Things finally quieted down in our neighborhood around midnight, but fireworks from the North Valley and the occasional local BOOM continued into the early morning hours.

Los Angeles is a “war zone” tonight! Beyond the endless fireworks, there are all kinds of shootings (at least 39 on Saturday night) and stabbings and kidnappings and suicides happening all over the city! People are crazy after being locked up for months and it’s the full moon!

Lunar Eclipse time! Sorry, no partial eclipse for you – because the time posted was Eastern Time and we just missed it. But it was a beautiful full moon!

“Enjoy Every Sandwich” – Warren Zevon

We slept in until 9:30am! Well, we were up all night with the dogs.
We fell asleep for a couple hours in the morning and then we woke up and took care of the dogs. Our usual morning routine, and we got the newspapers, and enjoyed a cup of espresso. We needed to catch up on our Blog, we are still celebrating 150000 HITS, so we spent a little time here and we just posted last week’s update (Part 51).

It’s Noon, well 12:15pm now, and time for Sunday Brunch. We ate cheeseburgers yesterday at 3:00pm, and didn’t eat dinner, so we are feeling a little hungry right now.

10:00pm: We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and then took a nap for the rest of the afternoon. We woke up and we played with and fed the dogs. We watched part two of HBO’s “Gone in the Dark” documentary and then we listened to the two podcasts online. And we were awake the rest of night and into the morning. We didn’t eat any dinner, but we snacked on celery with peanut butter, a couple handfuls of almonds, some tortilla chips, and a little milk chocolate. We took a shower and fell asleep.

7:00am: Good morning! It’s Monday again!
We woke up about an hour ago. We got the newspapers and fed the dogs.
We were outside with the dogs on both sides of breakfast.
We ate a toasted bagel with cream cheese and drank an iced espresso.
We updated this Blog Post, and added Monday morning stuff.
We have some chores to do today and the housekeeper is coming later.
And it’s going to be HOT again here in Los Angeles this week.

107274049_3810642628962275_6722037860897710846_o

AND THE BEACHES IN LA COUNTY ARE OPEN AGAIN (as of 5:00am).
And Los Angeles County CoronaVirus cases SPIKED THIS WEEKEND!

10:20am: It’s HOT! We scooped the poop.
Then we tried to do some gardening but it was TOO HOT outside.
The housekeeper is here and we have the dogs laying down in the office.
We are all self-isolating while she cleans.

Celebrity Deaths this week:
Carl Reiner, actor/comedian/writer/director, age 98
Hugh Downs, newscaster, age 99
Ennio Morricone, award-winning Italian composer, age 91
Nick Cordero, Broadway star, from CoronaVirus complications, age 41
Charlie Daniels, country music star, had a fatal stroke today, age 83

Recap of Monday: We slept for a few hours while the housekeeper cleaned. And when we woke up she was gone. And we let the dogs run free around the house and outside for awhile before making breakfast for lunch. Later we cooked a chicken breast for the dogs, (we season their regular dog food breakfast and dinner with chopped chicken breast)

On The Menu: 2 eggs over medium, bacon, a quesadilla with salsa, an orange, with juice and an iced espresso to drink
106936242_3814484401911431_1284765113047005230_o

And the dogs got fed. And then we fell asleep again and woke up around 11:00pm. And we didn’t eat dinner again…. (and time for a rant)

SO THE WEEKEND F*CKING SUCKED! CORONAVIRUS 4th of JULY! 
AND THE FASCIST IN THE WHITE HOUSE USED THE HOLIDAY TO SPEW MORE RACIST BULLSHIT AT MOUNT RUSHMORE AND ON THE NATIONAL MALL IN WASHINGTON D.C.
We didn’t mention the Orange Turd in this Blog Post because of the holiday and because he is an international disgrace without a single redeeming quality. Everyday he does more damage to our country and to “WE THE PEOPLE” that’s us, the public.

We just can’t right now…. TO BE CONTINUED.

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!

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.

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!

“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!

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.

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!

Monday, June 29, 2020

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.

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.”

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)

Wednesday, June 17, 2020

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

103940912_3757620744264464_720050719858076400_o

Breakfast for dinner at 11:00pm

Pier 39 in San Francisco re-opened today.

Record Coronavirus case SPIKES today
in Los Angeles, Arizona, Texas, North Carolina, Georgia and Florida!

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?

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.

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.

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.

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)

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!

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?
HAVE WE FLATTENED THE CURVE?

THIS IS WHY THEY WANT YOU TO THINK IT IS SAFE:

90718743_10163021176060702_8798179714888892416_o

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!
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 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.

Waiting on the roof to be arrested….

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?

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.

You have a choice.

Happy Juneteenth!

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.

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

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.

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

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.”

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)

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!
thanks-jesus-for-this-food-de-nada-comment-tad-5684877

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

Can you Trust Trump?

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!

CLICK ON ANY SMALL PIC TO SEE A LARGER PIC AND VIEW THE GALLERY
AND THEN CLICK AGAIN TO VIEW THE PIC AT FULL SIZE!

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!
