Mrs. Clinton… This is what happens when you manipulate yourself into winning the primary.

(…Assuming Donald Trump WINS the presidency in 2016….)

 

I can only imagine what Hillary Clinton’s camp is thinking right now.  This is an election that i think she assumed would be an easy win.  Afterall… that Trump guy is crazy!  Right?

Well.. Maybe Donald Trump IS crazy.  Mabye he is a pathological narcissist.  Maybe Donald Trump is a sexist and a biggot.  But maybe the people of the United States would rather roll the dice with him than end up with someone who already has manipulated this election to be able to make it to the finals.

Had the democratic party actually LISTENED to their people instead of listening to who was giving the biggest payoff, and had Bernie Sanders win the primary like the American people wanted… We would NOT be in this unbelievable situation now.

Bernie Sanders

This election should always have been between Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.  (Bernie would have swept the floor with Trump I would  put money on it.)  …But because Mrs. Clinton and her career politician moves, the entire democratic party is going to lose NOT ONLY President but also the Senate and Congress and the Supreme Court! Now i think if the big boys at the top behind Mrs. Clinton’s election would have taken their heads out of their asses and voted with the mindset of the people they are SUPPOSED to represent we would not be facing 4 years of Donald Trump running our country into a capitalist’s dream but have actual intelligence in the lead office with Bernie running the show.   But alas… The people had to be the ones to send the message and unfortunately Mrs. Clinton’s camp made sure that Bernie was nowhere around when that time came and the people had to vote Trump cause they did not like the way Clinton corruptly does business.

Let us take this time and this upset in American Politics to really review why we are still using the system that is in place now.  We need to remove not only Super Delegates but also the Electoral College.  It is antiquated and does not clearly represent the people wishes.  This is 2016.  Why can the peoples popular vote not count as the votes for the country?  I believe this country keeps it the way it is because it is very confusing and technically makes it so the American public does not have a voice.  Only electoral college and super delegate’s have the power to be heard.  We are told our vote counts but really it doesn’t. And it SHOULD!!!

I am thoroughly disgusted by politics all the way around at this time. The one chance that the big wig’s up there in charge could have showed the people that they were being heard, they go ahead and throw the election just to get their croney to be able to “keep her place as the next president”.  Well the people didn’t want Hillary Clinton in office, and they would not listen, so instead the American people had no choice but to vote for the other candidate.

I am so angry with how Americans are STILL getting scammed by their own politicians who are suppose to be representing THEM!  We need to repeal Citizens United which was passed in 2010. We need to overturn the Supreme Court’s ruling of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, which ruled to allow unlimited political spending by corporations.  This ruling said that it would be unconstitutional for limits to be placed on corporations because it would “limit how they could communicate, thus limiting their First Amendment rights”.  And until that happens, it is only big money that is going to have much voice in our future elections… and we all know that it isn’t the people who have the power of big money.  It is the corporations who have that luxury.

Before i shut up… let me take a minute and say that i think we should really think about what is happening to our country and our political system.  I don’t feel like anyone really thinks that good candidates were given as an option after Bernie was bamboozled out.  What is the future of America going to do if we can not be heard through our votes?  Isnt it time for us as Americans start revamping the failing voting system that is 200+ years old?

Well tonight i think America was heard.  Heard loud and clear.  We are SICK of career corruption with politicians.  We need to clean up house and rebuild it behind glass where the whole system is open for scrutiny.  We need Sunshine type ordinances put in place to make the entire game of politics have to face oversight and transparency by the people who pay their salaries.  …It seems all we have now is an industry that makes it legal to be a criminal.  I know that corruption is going to always go hand in hand with politics but we can keep it to a limit.  Make our politicians know we are watching them.

Mr (dare i say President) Trump,  PLEASE dont screw us! (ALL of us!!)  (if you are indeed the winner which i should state that as of now only 89% has been tabulated but Trump leads with 244 electoral votes to Clinton’s 215).

Now as for Mrs Clinton.  My suggestion to you is to make Bill give you a foot rub and pour you a nice hot bubble bath so you can finally relax and get a good night sleep.  You can sleep in too…  seems tomorrow, you might have the day off … and the day after… and the day after that…. It will give you plenty of time to reflect on where you went wrong.

Do they seriously think that we all would believe that the Blue Angels won’t fly because the military is TOO POOR???

One big word for that… BULLSHIT!!!

I mean seriously, how stupid do they think we are?  If the greed mongers that control the world did not want to give the bay area an air show this year at fleet week, couldn’t they at least have come up with a believable reason why??

I mean, come on!  Who would buy that the US Military is under funded??  NO ONE! Continue reading

What needs to happen in San Francisco for the rental market to ease…. (or at least a place to start!)

Image

 

This rental market is too far spinning out of control!! This is becoming a huge blith on the lives of all that have to be here. Some drastic measures are going to need to happen soon by our city officials before the rental rises are going to keep charging up like a freight train. I personally right now, without an act of god, see it reversing any time soon let alone level off.

Bottom line, we need to get more rentals infused into our city

…. Where oh where are we going to find them? Lets see, we can build more cheap ugly high rises, we can force out our minority and low income residents,

OR… We can start cracking down on ALL of the illegal leased rentals being rented out at insane prices for a weekend as vacation housing on sites like AirBNB. Not only are all of these rentals that are being included in the numbers for the city being paid for in 2-4 nights for the month rent and sitting empty most of the time, they are not being charged any of the hospitality taxes that a regular-on the grid- bnb or hotel is. It is a massive loophole that is definitely an invisible factor to the lack of available rentals. The landlords should crack down about this stuff too. If a landlord finds a tenant sub leasing their apt. out, and it is not written into the lease, that is just cause for eviction i believe. I am sure the landlord would rather be making the money off of the people needing a place than a tenant!

And.. i think we need some city sponsored and funded low income housing built. Fast. But not cheaply! That is just my observation of a couple places we could make a few adjustments to try and help ease the strain a little.

The city made a LOT of hidden deals with a LOT of companies within the last year to have them bring their businesses here. They can not do that and bring in all that new revenue without providing necessary basics. Sometimes it takes money to make money and they need to take that cash out of their pockets and build some more housing for all of these people that they just enticed to come live here. It seems very corrupt down in city hall these days, because this is really the city’s problem and the city is the only single source that can fix it.

Ok. It is time to call out San Francisco Govt. on its quest to rid its self of all progressive(s)

Ok.  Lets just call the big pink elephant in the room out.  It is so obviously clear that there is a strong movement coming from the anals of our high ups in the corrupt world of politics & greed.  Now SF looks like a circus in the world views of city govt. all in order to squeeze out ANYTHING standing in their way of under the table deals, political back scratching and money making crony appointments.

It started with our dear mayor Ed Lee.  Lee was appointed to the post upon the early departure of sitting mayor Gavin Newsom.  When this happened, Mr. Lee made NUMEROUS promises not to actually run for the position when his appointment ended.  He waited until most of the candidates had burned out most of their funds to campaign with and then came on with HEAVY heavy advertising.  He also (and most importantly) had the backing of the political powers that (although not in office, hold more power than those in politics now) can hand anyone that they chose the position.  Some of these powerhouse names include Mr. Willie Brown, Ms. Nanci Pelosi, Gavin Newsom and his backers the Gettys to name a few.  Needless to say, Ed Lee somehow won the mayoral election although i do not personally know of one single person who did vote for him (which doesnt mean a thing i know.)

Next it was the vicious attack on Sheriff Elect Ross Mirkirami and the BS domestic violence charge and the character slaughtering of our former Supervisor in the court of public opinion.  I of course do not condone any act towards women of violence… However, when the spouse of said abuser says publicly that she is NOT being abused and this is a political witch hunt, after watching the BS unfold, i would say she is absolutely right.  When on earth does a DA put into place a protective order for some one other than themselves?  Ms. Lopez said publicly did not want any order of protection put onto Mr. Mirkirami but DA does it anyway, that is shady if nothing else.  The political left is after total domination of the San Francisco govt. landscape and tearing a family apart is just part of the casualties of its war… No big deal right?  NOT!

Now, the most recent in the push out of progressiveness is an ambush on the Sunshine Ordinance.  The Sunshine Ordinance was put into place in the 1990’s as a move towards open government.  Open Govt. is the wave of the future and is oh so needed in maintaining a govt. without egregious corruption.    Greed and corruption is what is taking the soul out of this city to turn a penny for a few powerful players.  This city has had a history with backroom dealings and shady plays.  Every time it starts getting out of control, it takes its toll on the long term residents that have made this place so attractive in the first place.  The Sunshine Ordinance has the requirement of placing a few appointments into our city govt.  However, recently, their appointments of the incumbents as well as well qualified new possibilities for their appointments were denied or to say it in the phrasing of the SF Guardian “refused to seat two candidates” and told them to come back to them with a new list of possible apointees.  It is all messy and super shady and now to me very obvious that OPEN GOVERNMENT AND ANYTHING THAT MAY STAND IN THE WAY OF WHAT THE BIG MONEY PLAYERS ARE UNDER ATTACK AND ARE TRYING TO BE WIPED OUT COMPLETELY.  This is not good at all.

For those who have recently moved to this city, it may not be as apparent to you what is happening.  You may think that all of this city growth and redevelopment areas are great, you are wrong.  Not saying that growth is bad or that building and redeveloping is bad too, but when it is to eradicate an entire community that has been living in their neighborhood for generations just to get greedy hands on that lucrative property it is WRONG.  This has been done to every single corner of our city except the lower eastern corner of Bayview/Hunters Point and Visitation Valley (vis. valley has been spared due to its such south local.)  This is systematically ridding SF of more of its ethnic residents and their neighborhoods has been going on (think western addition redevelopment) for a LONG time leading us to now where the percentages of black and hispanic populations have been cut down to single digits where in the past, the black and the spanish community has been a major part of the city’s fabric.

It is just like a slow bad dream coming to fruition.  Greed and power has got to be put into check and seen for what it is right now in San Francisco.  We have a heavy and colorful history of fighting against ‘the man’ and hopefully it will continue on in activist movements and rebel voices.  Remember that there is a lot more to any story coming from city hall than they are going to ever advertise.  And that sometimes it is not worth the pretty skyline and high property values to lose its soul and flavor of the great city of San Francisco.

SSI Disability revoked asks the question…

I have a friend who was awarded SSI Disability a couple of years ago because she suffers from pretty debilitating clinical depression and generalized anxiety.   She received a letter a few months ago stating that her benefits were going to be under review.  This did not surprise me due to the state of the economy and how butchered funding towards social services has gotten.

She has been disabled technically since her early twenties but really started getting professional help in the early 2000’s.  Her depression was severe enough to (according to the Certified Vocational Specialist) be “almost entirely unemployable” due to the amount of days that would be called in sick and the randomness of those days.  No employeer would want to deal with someone calling in sick on and off and not being able to set any work schedule that could be absolutely relied on all the time.  It would be impossible because she never knew when the bouts of depression would hit.  When they did, she can not even get out of bed let alone function in any productive environment (unless it contains a lot of sleeping and crying).

This does not however mean that she is a mess 100% of the time.  When not depressed, she is quite engaging and very bright, cognitive and intelligent.  In fact she is usually the one that friends go to to ask for advice because she has the most level and informed head on her shoulders.  She knows when the depression is going on and sometimes even why, however, her cognivity is not so strong to be able to overtake the depression with logic.  Unfortunately it doesn’t work that way.  She is at the mercy of her disability regardless how intelligent and stable minded she is when it is not at play.

She researched online and by asking professionals if there was any risk of these benefits might be at risk of being revoked, and she got an abounding no, because she was not able to attain any work over that 18 months, she continued seeking professional help (even adding a therapist due to the depression getting worse), as well as upping the dosage of medications over this period of time.

She was sent to a “doctors appointment” that was scheduled by SSI that had her do basic  learning as well as mostly memory tests.  She thought it was something like she did in Jr. High when she was tested for learning disabilities minus the math.

She was told at the end of the appointment that she did “well above average” with the tests.  She got nervous and was assured by the therapist that there were a  many intelligent people in the world that suffered from mental disabilities and not to worry.

BOY was she wrong.  Not only did they not bother to look at the notes all of her doctors submitted that have been seeing her regularly.  Or the fact that she has been prescribed increased dosage in her medication and added another mental health doctor.  Nor the original judgement.  They went solely on this one test that said… “well she can think and understand and organize thought and interact with people so that must negate the depression.” So they told her that they were going to revoke her benefits because she was not disabled anymore.

She now is about to go through the process of appealing this revocation.  It really does not seem fair that after 3 long years of applying and appealing to finally see a federal disability judge and have them rule in her favor, to now have to have an employee of disability be the one who decides if they were wrong by revoking.  If they uphold their revocation, then she has to appeal to the Supreme Court of her state.  At least at that time, it is not going to be a partial employee to the SSI system making this decision, but another federal judge.  However,  receiving this news has thrown her back into the mental mine field of suicidal thoughts and regular long severe bouts of depression.

I think that they are trying to ‘shake the tree’ so to speak and see where they can avoid having to give money, but is it that being cognitive cancels out suffering depression and difficulty in finding and maintaining gainful employment due to this fact?

It just does not seem fair to me.  She is not faking it and i am concerned that she seriously thinks about how much easier it would be to just not be here anymore.  How could they not even look at the legal decision ruled by a federal judge that landed her benefits in the first place?

The world we are living in, here in America has truly been hijacked by greed and Corporations.  I say get out NOW while there is still a chance or there is going to be nothing but a high class and a slave class with unsafe infrastructure and rioting crime. No healthcare and education that is teaching nothing but ignorance (see posting a few days earlier titled “Pun intended…”).

In the last 15 years i have seen what was the land of freedom and economic opportunity has turned into.  It is now a place that you can watch the picked fences falling before your eyes.  No one can get a job because they have all been outsourced yet at the same time, inflation has gone up like they are playing with monopoly money.  Every time that we have inflation, the banks make a profit off of this.  I have a feeling that because of this, by 2020 it is going to be about $2700 for a cup of coffee and $50 million for a starter home.  Why is it we just sit and watch our utopia be hijacked by greed and government?  What is worth fighting for these days?  And what kind of future are the youth going to have to survive in?  Unless bankrolled, or REALLY above average intelligent applicable in a relevant profiting industry, they are going to have no choice but to survive however they can and that usually means crime.

It is crazy to watch a first world country/#1 world power collapse into a 2nd world country in less than one generation.  It is such a waste of what so many worked so hard to build and so unfair to those that are not the corruption that greedily caused it!  It truly makes me sick and very afraid.

There is something really fishy here with Ross Mirkarimi’s BS DV charges….

When i read this post on KRON 4 News…

Facebook Question: Should Ross Mirkarimi step down from his position as SF Sheriff?

My answer is this:

ABSOLUTELY NOT. Mirkirimi, HOLD YOUR GROUND! You are all us progressives have left to believe in and they are trying to get you out already through the biggest BS slander campaign. Has ANYONE EVER seen a situation where the district attorney files a protective order for another person? She did not want the stay away order and they forcibly imposed it to try and separate this family. When the wife is as outraged as the husband who supposedly “abused” her, about the charges, then this shows me that it is just the inner circle trying to get him gone before he gets a chance to do his HONEST job. Mirkirmi was my district sup. for all the years he was one for the west. add. He was AWESOME! Please people, see this for what it is… A slam campaign to try to force out the guy that may be too honest for those crooks liking. To prove my point, check this out… see anything wrong on this article?

http://www.kron4.com/Article.aspx?ArticleID=2744

There is a lot more to this story than the press is letting on. It smells SUPER stinky to me. The one that i really want to know about regarding what her motivations were is Ivory Madison, the “80 hour a week workaholic with perfect husband and daughter” (according to her fb page). She stinks up the whole town when it comes to thing smelling fishy! There are personal motivations that are not being discussed here i am sure of it!

 

It deeply disturbs me that we as a public are still so blinded by the exact same words in 1 single story re published all over and re reported everywhere.  There is a lot more here than meets the eye.  The fact that people think it is ok to treat this man like a brutalizer is just plain crazy.  What was this crazy nosey woman doing filming her neighbors on New Years Eve?  If they did  not know she was filming them, that could be a felony offense.  This whole thing just has the exact footprints of a tacky smear campaign.  The scary thing is, it is being bought as it is being sold onto the best man in our current government in San Francisco.  And, this is coming from an 8th generation SFer who has lived here for 18 years (and in Mr. Mirkarimi’s district for 15 of those 18 years.)  I have seen him in action many times and he is the only rep i ever saw going into his district to shop, dine and just check in regularly.  I am bothered to my core by this bullshit take down campaign.  San ‘Francisco truly has been bought and sold just like the rest of them.  It breaks my heart.  San Francisco was supposed to be grassroots and involved. Not greedy and ignorant.  What is happening here to the closest place that one ONCE could have called Oz?
