Saturday morning…. storm warning!
Happy Summer Solstice!

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

92439123_1216567998719680_9141907193128288256_o

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

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

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

Screen Shot 2020-03-19 at 03.38.22

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

measlesquarantine

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“Trump has to show how much he loves Jesus”

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

103258684_10158410877312710_5234541077300239394_n

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

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

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

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

101844908_10219908921366853_4004526639483453440_n

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

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

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

EZwBz7KXYAIu40o

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

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

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

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

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

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

And these people obviously don’t understand the odds or the risk.

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

There were THOUSANDS of people in the streets of Hollywood!

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

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

POLICE BRUTALITY AND POLICE VIOLENCE IS AN EVERYDAY REALITY!
Everyone has a camera! Everyone is watching now! 

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

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

We need PEACE OFFICERS not police.

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

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

Donny was hiding in a bunker in the basement, five floors underground, the first night protesters were outside The White House, and #BunkerDon, #BunkerBoy, #BunkerBaby, and #BunkerBiatch were all trending! Then he put up the fence and #babygate was on!

So what has the protesting accomplished?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

💓The self-reflection.

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

Globally:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Keep protesting.

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

How beautiful is that?

ALL LIVES CANNOT MATTER UNTIL YOU INCLUDE BLACK LIVES.

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

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

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

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

🖤🖤🖤BLACK LIVES MATTER🖤🖤🖤

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

“I CAN’T BREATHE!” – George Floyd

99252529_10220260301009419_2506625420267356160_o

George Floyd is dead. He was murdered on video.
Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin killed him.
Chauvin was aided in this killing by three other Police Officers.

100646466_10163695445965241_3927334467877732352_n

All four were fired as soon as the footage aired. After three days of protests and three nights of rioting in Minneapolis, Chauvin was finally arrested and charged with 3rd degree Murder and Manslaughter. The other officers have not been arrested yet.

A black CNN reporter and his crew were arrested by Minneapolis Police today.
This was a TARGETED ARREST In a clear violation of the FIRST AMENDMENT!

There are reports that an “Agent Provocateur” may have been involved in smashing windows at the AutoZone and starting the vandalism. And he may have been a Minneapolis Police Office! There are pictures and posts and tweets, so go find the truth.

And Trump Tweeted. Rage tweeting on drugs. He has nothing positive to contribute, just more lies, slander, and self-serving propaganda (while 101000+ US Citizens have died).
Only today, he quoted another WHITE SUPREMACIST RACIST and threatened violence.

100593722_4627597343917874_7698166228774289408_n

Today’s Disgraceful Trump Tweet:
“These THUGS are dishonoring the memory of George Floyd, and I won’t let that happen,” tweeted Trump early Friday morning. “Just spoke to Governor Tim Walz and told him that the Military is with him all the way. Any difficulty and we will assume control but, when the looting starts, the shooting starts. Thank you!” 

100088646_137004467962562_3909855832178688000_n

And Taylor Swift tweeted! And so did a lot of other angry people.

101956344_895265940900942_378877516359663616_n

NOTE: Well, we started watching the protest at about 4:00pm PST and didn’t eat dinner until after midnight because there was so much anger exploding all over the USA to see.

Screen Shot 2020-05-29 at 21.44.21

“The Pinch” in Downtown Los Angeles 5-29-2020

There was a protest in DTLA last night that turned into a six hour riot and looting party. You might not know it, because most of the network TV stations didn’t cover it live on TV, instead to get the real news you had to go online and search. And there were “protests” in many cities besides Minneapolis last night.

Screen Shot 2020-05-29 at 22.56.39

Escaping the LAPD containment through a Construction Site 5-29-2020

Okay kids, the event started before the sunset and went on until long after midnight…. yes there was some reporting and live coverage on network but really? There were 500 LAPD officers in DTLA and it was a tactical clusterf*ck. Six hours after the looting began, there were still cars and Metro buses driving through the chaos. People were running into buildings and through buildings to avoid the police. By the time the cops reponded to a location being looted, the crowd had already moved on. And they left their cop cars unguarded on the streets, so there was massive vandalism to numerous police units! The longer it went on the more people showed up to join in the anarchy, and there was no sense of urgency or coordinated response when the protesters moved onto the freeway early on… after two nights of rioting, why weren’t they prepared for this?
(THIS IS EXACTLY HOW THE 1992 L.A. RIOT STARTED!)

And then SATURDAY HAPPENED. (See our next Blog Post)

99557600_10224850905239346_6192981685622013952_n

TRUMP’S RACIST AND DIVISIVE TWEET from April 17, 2020

A message from Mayor of Minneapolis, Jacob Frey:
“What started as largely peaceful protests for George Floyd have turned to outright looting and domestic terrorism in our region. We need you to stay home tonight….Governor Walz, at our request and in partnership with our city and Mayor Carter, has just fully mobilized the Minnesota National Guard. MPD and our fire department will be assisting tonight as part of this operation.” 

AND THIS TOO! READ THIS! YOU NEED TO READ THIS!
Screen Shot 2020-05-29 at 15.04.31

Can you Trust Trump?
NO. NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO! NO!

Police Brutality Protest in San Francisco in 1968! (photo by Jim Marshall)

“Let the photograph be one you remember-not for it’s technique but for it’s soul. Let it become part of your life-a part of your past to help you shape your future.” – Jim Marshall

IT IS THE YEAR 2020!
IT IS TIME FOR POLICE AND PRISON REFORM!
IT IS TIME FOR POLICE TO STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK CITIZENS!
Every Police Officer who has been accused of brutality, racism, or a civil rights violation should be FEDERALLY INVESTIGATED WITH PUBLIC OVERSIGHT and when found guilty, terminated immediately and prosecuted as necessary.
THE ENTIRE JUDICIAL SYSTEM NEEDS TO BE REFORMED TOO!
One system of justice for all.
There can’t be one for rich white people
and another for people of color and the poor.

STOP POLICE BRUTALITY! STOP SYSTEMIC RACISM!
STOP KILLING UNARMED BLACK AND BROWN PEOPLE!
STOP RIOTING AND LOOTING! STOP BURNING THINGS!

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Born on January 15, 1929 – Murdered on April 4, 1968

Martin-Luther-King-Jr.-Day

“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”

Abraham, Martin And John
written by Dick Holler in 1968
Has anybody here seen my old friend Abraham,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lotta people, but it seems the good die young
But I just looked around and he’s gone.
Has anybody here seen my old friend John,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lotta people, but it seems the good die young
But I just looked around and he’s gone.
Has anybody here seen my old friend Martin,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lotta people, but it seems the good die young
But I just looked around and he’s gone.
Didn’t you love the things they stood for?
Didn’t they try to find some good for you and me?
And we’ll be free,
Someday soon it’s gonna be one day.
Has anybody here seen my old friend Bobby,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
I thought I saw him walkin’ up over the hill
With Abraham, Martin and John.

Friday! National Donut Day USA!

It’s Friday, June 3rd, 2016! We thought we might try to “live blog” the day. 

My dogs and a couple guests Friday morning chillin’ on the backyard patio:

What time does the poker game start?

Woke up and got out of bed. We had bacon, grapefruit, a glass of orange-pineapple juice and an iced espresso for breakfast, and then a dill pickle, some tortilla chips and another iced espresso later on.

BACON

Social Media Time! Set up this Blog and worked on our other Social Media platforms, went through the emails and did other stuff in the Home Office until lunchtime.

NOTE: We are now back on SnapChat! @JoshWillTravel

We made a cheese quesadilla for lunch. It was quick and filling.

Dropped one of the dogs off at the pet groomer and then ran some local errands.

It’s National Donut Day 2016 in the USA! (see our previous Blog)
We went to get some donuts…

13320003_1405040042855891_6668563024848825242_n

Dunkin’ Donuts at Ventura Blvd and Balboa Blvd

We stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts and there was a parking spot in front, but then when we got out of the car and walked over, the line was out the door!

13307311_1405040039522558_8696210938156785003_n

LUNCHTIME RUSH! No Progress after 10 Minutes! Time to Bail!

We waited for about ten minutes without making progress or getting inside the doorway of the donut shop, so we bailed! Not very well managed if you ask me, offering a free donut with beverage purchase, and knowing there would be a rush at lunchtime…

So we drove a few blocks north on Balboa Blvd to Stop In Donuts at Victory Blvd. There was a parking spot in front and a pan handler in the lot.

Stop In Donuts at Victory Blvd and Balboa Blvd in Encino, California

There wasn’t a line (in fact it was us and the owner and her daughter alone in the shop) and so we bought a bag of donuts! Five donuts: Cinnamon Roll, Apple Fritter, 2 cake with chocolate frosting and a chocolate glazed with sprinkles for $6.30 cash and then they gave us a half dozen donut holes for free! (but we had to ask) And in tribute to Mitch Hedberg…THEY DIDN’T GIVE US A RECEIPT! (and we didn’t ask for one) Thanks Stop In Donuts!

We went to the local Post Office. Then instead of running our other errands we returned home because the temperature was 100 degrees in the San Fernando Valley and we wanted to bring the other four dogs inside the house and out of the afternoon heat.

Time to EAT the Donuts! Five donuts: Cinnamon Roll, Apple Fritter, 2 cake with chocolate frosting and a chocolate glazed with sprinkles for $6.30 cash and then they gave me a half dozen donut holes for free (not pictured)

Siesta! Afternoon nap time! Too hot for humans or dogs outside!

We woke up from our nap and it was still hot outside. The other dog was returned home from the pet groomer looking pretty and smelling nice.

Temperature at 6pm: 95 degrees! Hot in the San Fernando Valley Tonight!

13325610_1405186036174625_195332659434196567_n

Hot in the San Fernando Valley Tonight!

We fed the dogs, got ready to go out and then drove to NoHo. When we arrived there was food cooking on the grill! We drank a beer (Pabst Blue Ribbon) and waited for dinner time!

Texas BBQ Dinner in North Hollywood at a friend’s house:

13321811_1405315256161703_7731435450968711198_n

Dinner is Served! Texas/NoHo BBQ: Ribs, Beans, Bread & a Dr Pepper

On The Menu: Texas BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Beans, Bread and Butter with a Dr Pepper!

Dinner was a total surprise, and we weren’t expecting to eat so well. We didn’t eat until late, and then after a little post dinner digesting, we drove home.

And then we logged on to the internet around midnight and got the BAD NEWS:

Muhammed Ali RIP 1942-2016
He was The Greatest! Float like a Butterfly!
May the Four Winds Blow Him Safely Home.

Growing up, Muhammed Ali was THE SPORTS HERO! He was a black man in a white world who stood up for what he believed in. He was a great boxer! An Olympic Gold Medal Winner! The Heavyweight Champion of the World! He was a victim of Parkinson’s Disease. He changed the United States and the world!

Jeb Bush had a good breakdown of everything that was wrong with Trump’s tweet: “It’s like eating a watermelon and saying ‘I love African-Americans”

Trump said this today at a rally in San Jose: “We had a case where we had an African-American guy who was a fan of mine….Look at my African-American over here. Look at him. Are you the greatest? You know what I’m talking about?”

Trump is a “Cheap Fraud!”
And federal judge Gonzalo Curiel, who Trump called “A Hater” and “we believe, Mexican” ordered the release of internal Trump University documents and also ordered that ‪‎Trump‬ will go to trial starting Nov. 28 in a civil case in which he is accused of defrauding students who attended. Former managers of  the for-profit school portray it as an unscrupulous business that relied on high-pressure sales tactics, employed unqualified instructors, made deceptive claims and exploited vulnerable students willing to pay.

“I believe that Trump University was a fraudulent scheme,” Mr. Schnackenberg wrote in his testimony, “and that it preyed upon the elderly and uneducated to separate them from their money.”

Trump is a Liar and a Con Man who uses “Veterans as Props to Get Votes”
“For four months, Donald Trump didn’t cut the check to veterans groups that he claimed he had, and had not raised the money he said he did. And he never would have, unless investigations by multiple outlets had exposed him.” Former US Marine Alexander McCoy organized a protest outside of Trump Tower, demanding that the billionaire “apologize for using Veterans as props to get votes while failing to keep his promises.” After weeks of media scrutiny about donations he promised to veterans groups, Trump held a news conference Tuesday. The Washington Post and the Associated Press reported Trump sent many of the checks after reporters began asking the campaign questions about the fate of the donations. The total also fell far short of the $6 million Trump had been bragging about.

First Amendment and The Constitution?
Trump insulted the Press during the news conference and ABC News’ Tom Llamas was branded a “sleaze” for asking about the gap between the $5.6 million and the $6 million in donations. His question: “You said you had raised $6 million. Clearly you had not. Your critics say you tend to exaggerate and have a problem with the truth.”

And a Trump campaign staffer and private security guard removed a Politico reporter from the San Jose rally on Thursday for reporting on the event without permission as violent demonstrations and protests erupted outside the venue.

Here’s what Trump thinks of you!

“HANDS UP! DON’T SHOOT!”

WARNING: I’m going to talk politics, civil rights, racism, police brutality, abuse of power, abuse of power under color of authority, murder, First Amendment, and personal freedom in this post. If you don’t like it. Don’t read it.

GRAPHIC IMAGE! African-American Teenager Michael Brown Killed by Caucasian Police Officer in Ferguson, Missouri. (Do you think this image should be censored on CNN?)

All men (and women) are created equal.
The Constitution, the First Amendment and Personal Freedom are under attack!

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” – the Preamble of the Constitution

Unarmed Man v. St. Louis County Police: "Hands Up! Don't Shoot!" Ferguson MO

Unarmed Man v. St. Louis County Police: “Hands Up! Don’t Shoot!” Ferguson, Missouri 2014

I learned from the last presidential election, that sharing politics on the internet is a good way to lose “friends” and “followers” who might not align with the politics that are shared.

However, as I followed the events in Ferguson, Missouri yesterday and into the night, I was left asking 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)

After 50 years - Progress? St. Louis County Police in Ferguson, Missouri v. unarmed protesters

After 50 years – Progress? St. Louis County Police in Ferguson, Missouri v. unarmed protesters

I watched racist police in camouflage uniforms and body armor attack unarmed protesters and journalists. They were teargassed, fired at with rubber bullets, attacked with high tech military weapons, intimidated by heavily armed police, assaulted and arrested for recording the strong-arm tactics and activities of law enforcement.

Missouri and St. Louis County, your police stormtrooper tactics are a national disgrace!

From the Washington Post: reporter-wesley-lowery-gives-account-of-his-arrest: “As they took me into custody, the officers slammed me into a soda machine, at one point setting off the Coke dispenser. They put plastic cuffs on me, then they led me out the door.”

The mainstream television news media was absent and the reports from network news was skewed, twisted and voiced without knowledge of the actual facts. Only MSNBC was present on the scene and providing live coverage. While the network morning shows were featuring weather, traffic, diet advice and Anne Hathaway and CNN and FOX were bending the truth, MSNBC was providing a factual accounting of POLICE ABUSE IN AMERICA.

And while journalists were ordered out of the area, attacked, assaulted and arrested, reports and video were coming in real time on Twitter and Livestream showing the truth.

The iPhone is mightier than the corporate news media! Thank you MSNBC and Twitter.
