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.

I wonder if she also straps her pet to the roof of the car to take on family vacations??

The typical Mitt Romney supporter i think.  We are in for a world of hurt if this is our future generation!!  Heaven help us!!!  No wonder China owns us!

It is not your usual fleet week in San Francisco and here is why… Something smells (again!) fishy when it comes to our terrible mayor Ed Lee and his sweetheart back room deals!

Blue Angels over SF

As i am approaching 20 years living here in San Francisco, i have always been very aware and involved in our city’s politics and events (and just general city issues).

There are a few things that one can count on like clockwork here in SF.  Fleet week has been one of those things.  They have had their week down to a science and (up until this week) here is how it goes down….

  1. It always falls on Columbus Day weekend.
  2. The Blue Angels fly into SF usually on Wednesday night.  You will see aircraft high up in the sky (i have always assumed that they were taking their measurements and plotting their landmarks as well as checking out the city. ) They always fly high on this first wednesday night.
  3. Thursday… the fun day!  Thursday seems to be somewhat of  a free day.  Back in 1994, they took this “play” to a whole new level by zooming tall buildings and flying back and forth UNDER the bridges.  Drivers were having nervous breakdowns getting sonic boomed from below!  There were concerns that accidents would be caused by this.  The workers in the (then) tallest buildings were having their nerves were shot by having an F16 fly 100 feet past their office windows 40 floors up.

Blue angels flying low under the bridge

(on a personal note, this year in 1994, my dad and i happened to be visiting my Grandma who at the time lived  on the top floor apt. across the street from the Comstock bldg on Jones st. (the very top block of Nob Hill).  I swear to god it was like they flew 3 yards over our heads.. I thought it had killed my grandma and i have (still to this day) NEVER seen my dad jump so far and so fast in my life.  We got the noise before we could see the plane and they were sonic booming us big time!)  After that, the city decided that there would be no more of that.  The fun thursday play day free for all was OVER.  It was still a free day, but they had distances that they had to fly above and under the bridges was OUT. (if i see a plane fly under a bridge this weekend, it will be absolute proof that money is the only thing talking with this admin.).  They also could not go more than so many mocks fast.  No right overhead sonic booms unless it was part of the routines.  That was the last time i have seen a plane fly under the bridge or fly that low that fast.  They decided it was just too distracting and dangerous and nicked it.  Put down the rules.

4. Thursday night you can see the Blue Angles doing their serious plotting and surveying in the night sky for their routine for the following 3 days.

5.  Friday (i like to see it as a locals performance) they do their routine like it was the show.  If you are a local and you love (you either love or hate the Blue Angels.  I personally have always loved them!) them, Friday is the day to go over to TI or Twin Peaks and watch the show without all the crowds and traffic.  It is the exact same routine that they do for the masses on Saturday and Sunday.

6. Saturday and Sunday, they fly on time every time and do the routine that was seen on Friday.

7. Monday (always having been labor day) there are no planes flying but Fleet Week is in full effect still.  Good time to go see the Jeremiah O’Brian or one of the big ships that have come for the event.

an angel and one of the little zippy planes that fly the course in the bay.

And, let me note, there are usually between 4-7 f16’s that fly in the Blue Angels each year during fleet week.   There are also a bunch of other planes that have performances here too.  Old ww2 prop planes, little rocket type jets that Red Bull uses in their air races (they have a course usually over the water that they have to fly around this flag and over to that one etc. and it is timed.  They are small and super fast and extremely maneuverable.  Like little rice rockets!) as well as sometimes Fat Albert, the big WW2 transport jet (i personally LOVE Fat Albert!).  So, the F16’s are by far not the only airplanes in SF to fly, but they are the dominating strength that is felt by the people on the ground.

Infamous Fat Albert

So, how is this year different?  I will tell you how. Mayor Ed Lee decided to cash in on this event and use it as a lure and a perk when negotiating the bringing over of all of these big tech firms.  I am sure of it!

To start, instead of coming in on Wed. night like always, this year, on the Sunday night BEFORE Labor Day, our skies were FILLED with planes. (normally this is the night that the planes are leaving to go back to wherever they came from.)

I counted close to at the very minimum, 20 planes flying low and slow and clearly with no rules over the sky.  The planes were EVERYWHERE that night.  Because it was not Fleet Week, i did not realize that the next day was even labor day.  I kinda got freaked out and relieved when i heard it was going to be Fleet Week the coming week. (by the way, this night happened to be an incredible blue (full) moon).

I heard them flying up until 4:00am.  This is unusual.  ESPECIALLY 3 whole days before they always have arrived! and every night and day infact since Sunday night, the planes have been all over the SF skies.

The following night, after it cooled down (it was 91 deg. f. in SF that day.  It was squelching!) i went for my hike up and around Bernal Hill.  During that walk, it all came together for me.  I know why what has worked like clockwork… a well oiled machine had fallen so far outside their usual doings.  It all came back to our horrible mayor Ed Lee (who shouldnt even be mayor because when he was appointed by Gavin Newsome, he had repeatedly said  (yes even promised!) that he was not going to try and run for Mayor.  Right before the election (and may i note, after the other candidates had been spending their budgets on their campaigns, in comes Lee with the deep pockets of Rose Pak and former (lets just call it as it really is… STILL our mayor but from behind the curtain) Willie Brown to “power campaign” for him over the last 2 weeks.  Somehow, he cut in line and won the post.)  (However, although not reported, i heard a LOT of incidents that could have definitely been considered voter fraud, from having workers telling the voters who to vote for to losing ballots.  If he wasnt being placed from the inside or it was any of the other candidates, there would have been an investigation i am sure of it!  I personally did my own little test and in asking, i found NOT 1 SF resident that actually voted for Lee.)

the mighty Blue Angels

Anyway, Brown is well known as being Super corrupt and selling out SF.  He did this yes, however, he did it with some flair and style.  He was personable and made it feel like he was working for you not just having his back pocket wide open and filling (although everyone knows that his pocket was getting stuffed.  EVERYONE!) It is kinda part of his legacy.

Mayor Lee is trying to be Willie with the chrisma of a grapefruit.  It is a total “pay to play” administration.  And Ed Lee, has been getting PAID.  The only thing he seems to have time to do since obtaining office seems to be funneling money into his pockets.  He has made just about as many backroom sweetheart deals (selling to the highest bidder of course!) so far in his term than Brown did in an entire term during his reign.

Who know what was put on the table as an incentive to companies like Twitter, AirBnB, Zynga etc. to talk them into moving their headquarters to SF, but as of this weekend, i am able to see one of the incentives….  Full moon city flights with full access to all of the airspace over SF. a whole week before Fleet Week as well as the same week as Oracle’s anual big trade show or party or whatever it is.  I also heard that Cloud had a conference this week.  It makes sense.

I imagine that a few of those planes up there flying on our tax dollars also contained a few big campaign contributers since it is after all an election year.

Why push back fleet week a week?  Just for that reason… full moon, holiday weekend, 2 major tech events happening in the city between the Sunday night flights and the Saturday daytime air show.  There are some big heavy pay off’s being handed out this week.  I can feel the corruption bubbling out of the city this week.

So, to finally answer the question i posed earlier, after 18 years of Fleet Week being a clockwork routine, why this year is it not the usual…  Because it is part of the political ass kissing and back pocket revenu building the mayor has created to help sell out the soul of the city while he gets rich and probably powerful.

At least when Willie Brown was fleecing the city, he did it looking super suave!  Lee is a plain, dumpy, not very well spoken, want-a-be.  However regardless of his less than minimal people skills to his public and his unmatching disheveled appearance, he seems to be siphoning off the hard earned tax dollars and political pay outs with ease.

(Considering how much of his own pocket he has lined since his short time as our pathetic soulless mayor, he could at least get a decent looking tie and a haircut!)

I now am watching the skys with more than just how cool the planes are in my mind.  I am seeing the outcome of some of the perks that he gave out in order to appear to be amazing at brokering big tech to set up shop at our house of SF.  So, they bring in tax money to help replace all the loot he has spent making it feel like SF is the Google of employers with slides and everything!  (Slides that slide our hard earned cash into his personal coffers!)

Anyway, i hope all of this BS ass kissing has not effected the focus of the air squads. I  know that our Blue Angels have had to do more this year away from their own performance to assist with these deals.  Lets just hope that they have not filled their week with so much other bullshit that something goes wrong because there was just too much distraction going on up above our heads!

I will just have to wait and watch and hold my breath which is really more like steam because i am so angry about the state of our elected politicians, and hope that there is nothing that goes wrong.  (i know technically it already has, but this time i mean an accident.).

The reason you MUST vote NO on prop. 29 California!!

In an era of economic instability and financial collapses both on the large scale and in families lives around the US, we have seen greed on a scale that hasn’t been seen in DECADES.  It has become so egregious that it has gone after all and any funds that they can get ahold of.

This means that YOUR hard earned money has been hijacked by someone.  Many people in fact.  But all of that money (the almost 50% of earned income tax, the general funds, the inflation, the energy and gas industries etc) does not just evaporate.  It has to actually be somewhere.  Where could ALL OF OUR MONEY GO??  It has gone to the ones that have been overtaken by a greed of an unseen magnitude.

It has so far been successful and a LOT of people that used to have savings and or a home and or a job and or good schools and or well kept infrastructure, now are living hand to mouth or is on life support.  The separation between the rich and the poor is getting farther and the middle class is disappearing because of things EXACTLY like Prop 29.

This is one of the more brazen attempts to steal your cash on some bullshit presumption disguised as some smoking research farce.  This is simply a legal request for us, Ca. taxpayers, to give our money over to a small group of people that are going to take that money (our money) out of the state and even the country to build labs so that they can do genome testing (which, if you didnt know, is VERY lucrative and VERY competitive for the control of the pattens of every discovered genome’s function. )  I personally believe that this has very little to do with cancer.  If it did, they would be using funds to treat or help with succession of smoking… OR criminalizing the TOBACCO INDUSTRY.  Not their victims.  Who of course are more likely to be the poor.  Surprise surprise!

This prop does not allow the chairman to be audited to start with.  The structure of the proposition can not be changed for 15 (yes that is fifteen!!) years making it until 2027 to change any of its rules or the way it is run.  It allows a board to be hired and the chairman to acquire what ever staff at what ever salaries the board chairman decides as well as to build or acquire what ever property and supplies needed  that the chair requests.  Basically it is a free money dispersement plan where one guy gets a group of his crooked greedy cronies to be “hired” so he can pay them whatever “salaries” he choses to give and build whatever facilities to do what? who knows!

The taxpayers of California are already seriously in the red here.  We have had our schools lose their music, sports and art programs all while condensing classes into super large classes.  Our roads and bridges are falling apart.  Our police and fire are seeing major closes.  We are selling off state parklands and buildings for godsake!  We clearly just recently got swept out.  No one seems to have the cash… the people, the governments, the non profits.  It has been flowing out of california at a hemorrhaging rate over the last decade especially.

How can we justify voting yes on prop 29 when our own communities need that same money oh so badly?   No matter how much you hate smoking, this is not going to do a damn thing to stop or help stop smoking.  It is more like it is funding a smoke screen!

If you want to make a difference and give more of your own money away, donate it to something that actually helps with the issue of smoking.  Please do.  Send it to the American lung assoc.  Or the local non-profit emergency clinic in your own community.. even better!

But for most of us (i believe or at least hope!), we do not think that studying smoking in a lab in Bangladesh is going be at the top of our lists of to do’s when feeling a little extra flush!  And, i am going to be really disappointed if the citizens of the State of California are so ignorant and lazy that they watch a commercial or read a corporate sold out newspaper to base their decision and on 3 seconds of campaign propaganda.

If you do not believe me or want to find out for yourself if i am lying, PLEASE go read the actual proposition.  Not the arguments for or against it but the writing of the proposal.  Then tell me that you feel comfortable sending our state further into its debt abyss!

PLEASE VOTE NO ON PROPOSITION 29 IN CALIFORNIA!!

This is truly hilarious! If only the debate sounded like this… I might want to tune in!

A little vulgar and a little weird, but so so funny!
