Are you kidding me, San Francisco?!

This is a joke, right?

Apparently not.

According to the KUSI Newsroom (a local San Diego TV station), “San Francisco may remove President Abraham Lincoln’s name from a high school because some in the district say Abraham Lincoln did not demonstrate that “black lives mattered to him.”

Wait, what?!

“If you did not know, the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln, abolished slavery.”

I think we all know that, unless you went to school in California, apparently.

“Lincoln was also assassinated for it.”

Again, I think we all know that, unless you went to school in California, apparently.

Are these people in San Francisco all on drugs, or are they all just idiots?

The answer, I believe, is “yes.”

“The San Francisco Chronicle reported, ‘Lincoln is one of dozens of historical figures who the city school district’s renaming committee argued led lives so rife with racism, oppression or abuse that their names should not grace its buildings.’”

“Their names should not grace their buildings?!”

I would vote to have Abraham Lincoln’s name removed because he doesn’t deserve to be associated with this embarrassment of a city!

“The SFUSD [San Francisco Unified School District] School Names Advisory Committee’s discussion on the name was made public on YouTube.”

Jill Tucker, of the San Francisco Chronicle, reports that, “Abraham Lincoln, once a hero, is now a bad guy in some S.F. education circles.”

“Abraham Lincoln, an iconic American hero, could soon be an outcast in San Francisco, his legacy called into question and his name ripped off a high school.”

“Lincoln is one of dozens of historical figures who, according to a school district renaming committee, lived a life so stained with racism, oppression or human rights violations, they do not deserve to have their name on a school building.”

“The debate reflects a nation in turmoil, a reckoning with a racist past that lingers today, toppling Confederate statues from town squares and eliminating a large number of Robert E. Lee street signs.”

Confederate statues and Robert E. Lee street signs are one thing…, and President Abraham Lincoln is a complete other thing.

‘“Uprooting the problematic names and symbols that currently clutter buildings, streets, throughout the city is a worthy endeavor,’ said Jeremiah Jeffries, chairman of the renaming committee and a first-grade teacher in San Francisco. ‘Only good can come from the public being reflective and intentional about the power of our words, names and rhetoric within our public institutions.’”

Again, apparently not.

The only “problematic” name I see here is “Jeremiah Jeffries.”

He should be dismissed and allowed to find work teaching in a fascist country elsewhere.

“But history is not always clear. People are complicated. Heroism and bravery can be obscured by beliefs and behaviors deemed abhorrent when viewed through a modern lens.”

Is “modern” a synonym for “neo-fascist” now?

“Was Lincoln one of the greatest presidents of all time who ended the country’s great shame or a whitewashed historic character with a questionable record related to Native Americans not worthy of memorials, school names and street signs?”

Let’s please recall that the Native Americans were a conquered people in America.  Keeping that in mind, I feel they have been given ample consideration they would not have received from any other country.

“When the committee released the 44 school sites to be renamed, many made sense. Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe were slave owners, and Vasco Nunez Balboa was a murderous conquistador.”

I really don’t care about Balboa one way or the other…, San Francisco is the place that chose to name a school after him for some reason, but Jefferson and Monroe?  Two of the founding fathers of our nation?  And, yes, they may have owned slaves back then, but it was legal then, and over 200 years ago.

“But perhaps the most controversial name on the list was Lincoln. Honest Abe. The Great Emancipator.”

I would say having George Washington on that list is just as disgraceful, if not more so.  

“His inclusion exemplifies the struggle in San Francisco and across the country to balance the good and the bad, in this case, the hero and the 19th century man with many faults.”

Please don’t try and pull the rest of the country into your liberal insanity.

And please, give me names of some people who don’t have any faults.

I’ll wait.

‘“I have so many reactions in the sense of looking at his entire record and the fact of what (Lincoln) did for Africans and slavery and the Emancipation Proclamation,’ said Sherry Black, who worked for more than 40 years in Native American economic and community development. ‘Considering the time period, it’s so difficult to understand how things were at the time. How do you make these decisions?’”

Pulling your head out of your backside would be a good start, Sherry.

“To many, Abraham Lincoln was one of the country’s greatest presidents, the Great Emancipator, a beloved historic figure as well as political mentor to his successors, including Barack Obama, who used the Lincoln Bible for his inauguration.”

Uh…, yeah.

I knew Obama was a closet racist!  He’s half white you know!

“Yet the renaming of Lincoln High School was a slam dunk for the committee, which didn’t even discuss it, according to video of the meetings.”

A “slam dunk,” and they “didn’t even discuss it?!”

Okay…, that’s it!  I’m officially requesting that California be thrown out of the union of states.

California should not be allowed to fly the American flag, and its citizens should not be considered “Americans.”

I mean, either you want to be a part of America or you don’t…, and California obviously doesn’t…, so, just get out then.  

“The members of the committee, appointed by the school board, deemed whether a person’s actions or beliefs met the criteria for renaming, and moved on. The committee’s spreadsheet with notes on their research listed the federal treatment of Native Americans during his administration as the reason.”

Let’s take a look at this disgrace of a school board!

Mark Sanchez, School Board President

Gabriela Lopez, School Board VP

Alison Collins, Commissioner

Stevon Cook, Commissioner

Jenny Lam, Commissioner

Faauuga Moliga, Commissioner

Rachael Norton, Commissioner

These people were all elected by the city of San Francisco.

“The discussion for Lincoln centered around his treatment of First Nation peoples, because that was offered first,’ Jeffries said. ‘Once he met criteria in that way, we did not belabor the point.’”

Again, let’s please recall that the Native Americans were a conquered people in America.  Keeping that in mind, I feel they have been given more than ample consideration that they would not have received from any other country.

“Jeffries, however, said the narrative of Lincoln’s legacy is false.”

Jeremiah Jeffries…, judge, jury and executioner.

He sure wields a lot of power for someone who teaches 6 year olds.

“Regardless of the pop culture myths of Lincoln and his motivations, the Civil War was not fought over slavery or the liberation of Black people, he said.”

Without President Lincoln, Jeffries would be in no position to even utter his “stupidness” at this point.

Just sayin’.

“The San Francisco School Names Advisory Committee used the following criteria to identify school names to be changed:

Anyone directly involved in the colonization of people

Slave owners or participants in enslavement

Perpetrators of genocide or slavery

Those who exploit workers/people

Those who directly oppressed or abused women, children, queer or transgender people [Does this include Joe Biden?]

Those connected to any human rights or environmental abuses

Those who are known racists and/or white supremacists and/or espoused racist beliefs.” [This would historically include most democrat politicians.]

“San Francisco’s district is considering changing the name of schools honoring the following people [this is really only about half of the school names being considered]:

Abraham Lincoln High School, U.S. president

George Washington High School, first U.S. president

Herbert Hoover Middle School, U.S. president

Roosevelt Middle School, Theodore or F.D., both U.S. presidents

Paul Revere K-8, American Revolution patriot

Alamo Elementary, the site of Texas Revolution battle

Garfield Elementary, James Garfield, U.S. president

Jefferson Elementary, Thomas Jefferson, U.S. president

Francis Scott Key Elementary, composer of ‘Star Spangled Banner’

Monroe Elementary, James Monroe, U.S. president

An unwritten criteria for this ignorant list, and the most important factor, apparently, is being a white male.

Just sayin’.

“For the renaming committee, [otherwise known as the “woke” Nazi propaganda ministry], one decision that met the criteria was enough.”

‘“We asked ourselves, did the name under consideration meet one or more of our criteria?  If that name met criteria, they were put on the list,’ Jeffries said.”

“At the same time, labor leader Cesar Chavez didn’t make the list {He was not white.], despite his feelings toward undocumented immigrants, who he called ‘wetbacks’ and other derogatory names. He encouraged his supporters to report them to the authorities for deportation.”

And he was against illegal immigrants too!!!

How did he possibly survive their hit list?!

I’m telling you…, the white male criteria is the overriding factor.

“Jeffries said no one on the committee offered evidence that Chavez met the criteria. He did not say whether anyone on the committee looked for any.”

Alrighty then!

“The committee is expected to formally recommend renaming the 44 school sites in January, which will also include an alternative name chosen by Jeffries and the other members.”

“School communities have an opportunity to suggest a new name this month.”

Ooooh, I can’t wait to see what names they come up with!

Fidel Castro?

Karl Marx?

Vladimir Lenin?

Joseph Stalin?

Mao Zedong?

Don’t laugh…, I’m serious!

I’m sure Barack Obama, Michelle Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters, and Eric Swalwell are high on their list of replacement names.

Oh, wait…, Schiff and Swalwell are white…, we need to take them off the list!

“Stupid is as stupid does!”

Maybe, “do as I command, but not as I do” would be more appropriate.

According to Adam Shaw of Fox News, “The office of California Gov. Gavin Newsom has told residents in the Golden State that if they go out to eat, they should be wearing a mask ‘in between bites’ to protect themselves from COVID-19.”

Seriously?!

Are you kidding me right now?!

Do you think it would be a good idea to pat your head and rub your tummy while chewing as well?

It has literally gotten to the point that I am embarrassed to concede that California is a part of The United States.

None of this stuff has anything to do with effective ways of controlling the China virus. 

It’s all about government seeing how much dictating and controlling of our lives it can get away with in the name of “public safety.”   

‘“Going out to eat with members of your household this weekend?’ an Oct. 3 tweet from the governor’s office says. ‘Don’t forget to keep your mask on in between bites.’”

“For emphasis, the tweet shows an image of someone at a dining seat wearing a mask, then not wearing a mask while taking a bite, and then putting the mask on again.”

“However, the image then advises people to ‘minimize the number of times you take your mask off.’”

So, I guess you’re either not supposed to finish your meal, or take really big bites.

C’mon!!!

Please tell me you can see through this insanity.

Because if enough people can’t or refuse to, “The Socialist People’s Republic of The United States” is just around the corner.

Those democrats sure do love them some China!

Well, I suppose…, China is a communist country after all.

Sam Dorman of Fox News reports that, “House Dem praises China’s ‘discipline’ on coronavirus, and says Trump brings US into ‘parallel universe.’”

‘“They’re [China is] faring much better because they have shown the kind of discipline necessary to address this,’ she said.”

achina 6

“Rep. Jackie Speier, D-Calif. [a Nancy Pelosi wannabe], ripped the federal government’s response to the coronavirus, comparing it unfavorably to the way China handled the disease.”

achina 1

Is there no end to these brain-dead representatives from California?

It seems like we just continue to hear this “stupidness” from one after the other.

It’s a virtual parade of liberal fools trying to outdo each other!

‘“You look at China with so much more in terms of population … and they’re faring much better because they have shown the kind of discipline necessary to address this,’ she told MSNBC [MSDNC] on Monday.”

Oh yes, Jackie…, their discipline is just soooo impressive!

I didn’t hear you mention how China reacted very quickly…, restricting flights within their own country, in and out of Wuhan, while allowing international flights to spread their virus around the rest of the world.

Wasn’t that an awesome way of handling the disease, Ms. Speier?

The fact that you are giving China ANY kind of praise in this matter is utterly disgusting.

In my opinion, the rest of the world should isolate China, and hold them accountable, make them pay, and pay dearly, for all of the lives lost and hardship they inflicted on the rest of the world.

But you wouldn’t have any interest in that would you, Ms. Speier?

achina 8

achina 9

“She called out President Trump, accusing him of spreading false information and failing to provide leadership for the states.”

Hmmm…, that’s odd.  When’s the last time you heard a democrat congressperson from California accusing President Trump of something?

I believe it only occurs on a daily basis.

‘“Unfortunately, the president brings us into this parallel universe, where he talks about hydroxychloroquine as if that’s going to be a solution, and then we find out that can actually hurt people and create heart problems,’ she said.”

Thank you for your input “Dr.” Speier…, albeit misleading and disingenuous.

And talk about living in a “parallel universe!”

‘“He said anyone can get a test that wants a test. That of course isn’t the case – and he’s never really invoked the Defense Production Act. So, we are scraping for the testing agents that we need. So, there’s a total lack of leadership on the federal level. So you have states doing very different things. And that’s why we are not being able to rein in this virus.’”

So, so…, so, so, so.

The facts are, Ms. Speier, that we lead the world in testing, by a wide margin.  No one is even close…, not even your beloved China.

And he hasn’t really invoked the Defense Production Act because he didn’t have to!

Manufacturers from across the country stepped up and did what was needed to be done at the request of The President, in cooperation, as opposed to by order.

And, yes, states are doing different things, because different states are in different situations, regarding the Chinese virus.

“Her comments came amid a broader debate about the way U.S. media outlets covered China’s response. The issue garnered renewed attention after reports surfaced indicating that China had suppressed information about the pandemic’s impact on the country.”

Really?!

China “suppressed information?”

No way!

achina 10

achina 12

Who’da thunk it?

“Some outlets have favorably compared China’s response to that of the U.S., while other reports have uncritically repeated China’s claim that it saw no new coronavirus deaths in April.”

See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.”

achina 5

“Writing in the Washington Examiner last week, T. Beckett Adams accused media outlets of spreading ‘Chinese communist propaganda.’”

Ya think?

There’s no end to the collection of Chinese “tools” and useful idiots out there to help China put themselves in the best light.

“Adams highlighted a Foreign Policy report alleging that China’s government directed media outlets not to publish negative information about its response to the pandemic.”

“In the Foreign Policy article, reporter Tracy Wen Liu said she was ‘repeatedly shut down by authorities’ when she tried reporting on the virus. She added ‘that [t]he government sent dozens of journalists to Wuhan to shape the narrative around the virus.’”

That’s what communist regimes, and the American fake news media, do.  They “shape” their liberal narrative rather than report the facts.

“Liu said Beijing’s suppression included mass removals of COVID-19 patients’ online pleas for help.”

“Similarly, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese virologist, has accused the Chinese government of knowing about the coronavirus long before it acknowledged its existence to the world.”

What is Representative Speier’s opinion about that?

Imagine yourself waiting for a very long time while only hearing the sound of crickets in the background.

That’s the democrat’s, and the fake news media’s, response to that accusation.

And who is this Congresswoman Jackie Speier?

We haven’t really heard much from her up until now, but she does have an interesting past.

It turns out she was one of the people shot and left for dead at the site of the “Jonestown Massacre,” over 40 years ago.

On Nov. 18, 1978, she was shot five times on a remote airstrip in Guyana, South America.  Her boss, Rep. Leo J. Ryan and four others lay dead nearby, killed by gunfire as they tried to escape Jonestown, the commune built by cult leader Jim Jones.

achina 3

She didn’t suffer any brain damage as a result of the shooting, did she?

That would help explain things.

She accompanied Ryan and 23 other people to Guyana, on the northeastern coast of South America, attempting to visit Jim Jones and nearly 1,000 followers he’d amassed.

By the end of the trip, Ryan was dead, the first and only congressman to be assassinated in office, along with three journalists and one cult defector. Speier and nine others had been shot and left for dead at a remote air strip.  They waited 22 hours there for help to arrive.

Immediately following the shootings, Jones and more than 900 of his followers died from self-inflicted cyanide poisoning in what was seen as a mass suicide at the time, but is now widely considered a mass murder.

Speier has occupied Ryan’s former seat in Congress since 2008.

achina 2

Speier had a long recovery ahead.  Shot five times, she spent two months in the hospital and had 10 surgeries.

Speier is now a member of the nefarious House Intelligence Committee…, led by her treasonous congressional cohort, Adam Schiff.

More propaganda by omission!

Liberal propaganda, that is.

There were special elections Tuesday, May 12, for two open Congressional seats.  One in California and one in Wisconsin.

But, there was no mention of the results of these races on CNN or their website.

acnnelect 11

In their defense, it was a busy news day.

There were many stories that were much more important, like:

“A teenager accidentally hit and killed her father while learning to park truck.”

“Elle Fanning dressed up as Brad Pitt and nailed it.”

“Sharon Osbourne weighs in on body image debate after Adele’s viral Instagram post.”

“Tina Fey’s daughter crashes interview, calls mom a loser.”

“American artist Rashid Johnson: ‘Anxiety is part of my life.’”

I mean, you can only cover so much news, right?

But why on earth would CNN not even mention who won these elections?

Hmmm.  What’s going on here?

I mean, there are only 435 of these representatives, and they’re responsible for spending all of our money and making all of the federal laws.

You would think that any responsible news organization would at least mention the results.

Ahhh…, well there we have it!

CNN isn’t a responsible news organization…, it’s a part of the propaganda wing for the democrat party!

acnnelect 12

In fact, most of the mainstream, fake news media failed to offer ANY coverage of this as well.

acnnelect 8

When seen from the proper perspective…, CNN, and all of their fake news friends, not mentioning the special elections makes perfect sense.

You see, in the case of this special election, the two congressional seats were won by republicans, and Trump supporters to boot!

This does not fit the liberals’ narrative!

How could this be?

How could this be, when we are told that the whole country wants President Trump impeached?!

How could this be in the swing state of Wisconsin and the democrat stronghold of California?

acnnelect 7

And these republicans both won by substantial margins.  These were not wins that were eked out.

According to Joseph A. Wulfsohn of Fox News, “The GOP clinched major victories in two special elections held on Tuesday but was largely ignored by the mainstream media.”

Thank you, Mr. Wulfsohn, and thank God for Fox News.

If it wasn’t for Fox News, we would have no choice but to consume the democrat, mainstream media, fake news tripe.

“Mike Garcia managed to flip California’s 25th District, becoming the first Republican to do that in the state since 1998.”

This isn’t news?

This doesn’t deserve ANY type of mention?

“Garcia, a former Navy combat pilot, was declared the winner on Wednesday after his Democratic challenger, state assemblywoman Christy Smith, conceded the race. The congressional seat was previously held by Rep. Katie Hill, who resigned last year.”

acnnelect 1

“Wisconsin state senator Tom Tiffany was able to maintain the GOP’s control over the state’s conservative-leaning 7th district left vacant by Rep. Sean Duffy.”

Tiffany was not only “able to maintain” control of Wisconsin’s 7th district seat, he crushed his democrat opponent.  So much so that her name isn’t even mentioned, so as not to completely ruin her political future I suppose.

I have none of those concerns.  Her name is Tricia Zunker.

acnnelect 9

According to Wisconsin Public Radio, “Because of Wisconsin’s status as a swing state in the 2020 presidential election, the May special election is expected to be closely watched for signs of strength or weakness in Trump’s re-election campaign. Trump needs large margins of victory in Wisconsin’s rural areas to win the state, and the race is seen by many as a test of Democrats’ ability to reach rural voters.”

Ha!  So, I guess they failed the test.

acnnelect 3

“Past special elections in recent memory generated plenty of news coverage, particularly when Democrats pick up congressional seats as pundits often hype that such victories are a ‘bellwether’ for what’s to come in the upcoming elections.”

“However, there was little to zero mention of Garcia and Tiffany’s victories on any of the major news networks.”

“None of the three broadcast networks, ABC, CBS, and NBC, aired any coverage of the special election races during Wednesday’s morning programs. The networks skipped such coverage in the evening news shows as well.”

“CNN completely ignored both races throughout the day. Meanwhile, MSNBC once mentioned Garcia’s likely win on Wednesday morning but ignored Tiffany’s victory.”

acnnelect 5

acnnelect 10

Like I have been saying…, the fake news, mainstream media is really just an arm of the democrat party.

We’ve gone past the concern over biased media coverage to calling out these news outlets for what they are…, contrived and constructed liberal propaganda.

How else can you explain their behavior?

And if you’re a democrat…, is that OK?

If that is OK with you…, then you’ve gone from being a victim of the left’s deceit to being a part of the problem.

You’ve graduated from fool to tool.

acnnelect 6

Anyone who is objective and fair-minded cannot be a democrat.

Fake plants need love too!

When I saw this, after I stopped laughing and shaking my head, I knew I had to share it with you!

According to Michael Hollan of Fox News, “Woman discovers plant she’s been watering for two years is actually plastic.”

aplant 1

No Way!

Yes way!

OK…, watering a fake plant for two years is bad enough, but then admitting to it on Facebook and sharing it with everybody?!

“Plastic plants need love, too. They don’t, however, need water.”

“Caelie Wilkes shared her story on her Facebook page, where she wrote, ‘I’ve had this beautiful succulent for about two years now. I was so proud of this plant. It was full, beautiful coloring, just an overall perfect plant. I had it up in my kitchen window. I had a watering plan for it, if someone else tried to water my succulent I would get so defensive because I just wanted to keep good care of it. I absolutely loved my succulent.’”

aplant 2

That succulent certainly does suck!

And excuse me…, but who would these people be who would be trying to covertly water her fake plant?

Anyway…, this perfect relationship with her plant could have continued on forever…, except…

“Unfortunately, when she decided to transplant the plant to a new vase, she made a shocking discovery.”

Surprise, surprise, surprise.

aplant 3

‘“I go to pull it from the original plastic container it was purchased with to learn this plant was fake,’ she wrote. ‘I put so much love into this plant! I washed its leaves. Tried my hardest to keep it looking its best, and it’s completely plastic! How did I not know this? I pull it from the container it’s sitting on Styrofoam with sand glued to the top!’”

aplant 5

“Wilkes, a stay-at-home mom [that’s scary], shared photos of the plant, which does look to be real from the top. Once pulled from the container, however, it’s clearly not alive.”

‘“I feel like these last two years have been a lie,’ Wilkes concluded.”

aplant 4

I know how you feel Caelie.  I felt that way about the two years expended on the fraudulent Mueller Report.

Caelie lives in California.

You wouldn’t happen to live in Adam Schiff’s district would you, Ms. Wilkes?

Maxine Waters’?

Nancy Pelosi’s?

That would at least begin to make a little sense.

“Tell ‘em what they’ve won Johnny!”

“All of the homeless people in Oakland, California have won an all-expenses paid cruise ship adventure, Pat!”

Well…, not exactly all of the homeless population of Oakland.

According to Travis Fedschun of Fox News, “The City of Oakland considers obtaining a cruise ship to house the homeless!”

“This is not exactly ‘The Love Boat,’ but it could help make a dent in one California city’s homeless crisis.”

acruise 1

Unless you’re over 40 years old, you may not get the reference to “The Love Boat.”

For those of you who aren’t familiar with “The Love Boat,” “The Love Boat” was a TV series set on a luxury passenger cruise ship called the Pacific Princess.  The show aired on ABC from 1977 to 1987.  The series revolved around the ship’s captain, Captain Stubing (played by Gavin MacLeod), and a handful of its crew: Julie, Doc, Gopher and Isaac, along with several passengers, played by various guest star actors each episode, having romantic and humorous adventures.

The Love Boat - 1977-1986

Anyway…

“During a city council meeting on Tuesday, Oakland City Council President Rebecca Kaplan broached the idea of using a cruise ship to house up to 1,000 homeless people, suggesting a ship be brought to the Port of Oakland as the region deals with skyrocketing costs of living and a shortage of affordable housing.”

acruise 2

Have these liberals in California all lost their minds?

Seriously…, I’m seriously asking.

Their “solutions” just seem to be getting dumber and dumber.

acruise 15

I’ve heard they have excellent buffets on cruise ships, but our drug addicted friends may find it hard to find a fix if they’re confined to the ship.

And there would be a lot for them to do on the ship, but it seems all these homeless people do is lay around and sleep all day.

acruise 16

I don’t think we’d see a lot of them in the pool or on the water slide, but I could be wrong.

‘“It could be a great way to house a lot of people quickly,’ Kaplan told the San Francisco Chronicle. ‘Cruise ships have been used for emergency housing after natural disasters and for extra housing for things like Olympics.’”

“Homelessness has spiked in Oakland, with a 47 percent jump in two years — one of the largest surges of any California city, according to a one-night street count released in July.”

acruise 6

“The count, which used federal guidelines, showed Oakland had 4,017 homeless people, up from 2,761 in 2017. The increase has put the city’s per capita homeless rate higher than neighboring San Francisco and Berkeley.”

acruise 9

“Kaplan told the Chronicle she plans to present a proposal to the council in January that will be at “no or low” cost to the city, because residents of the cruise ship would pay for rooms based on their income. The city would not buy the cruise ship.”

I would like to go on record with my prediction that if this idea does come to fruition, it will NOT be at little or no cost to the city.

“The council president added that she has been contacted by cruise ship companies about providing a ship for emergency housing and that the companies – which were not named – were reaching out to the Port of Oakland about mooring options at the port.”

“The idea for a cruise ship in Oakland would be similar to the Queen Mary in Long Beach in Southern California.”

“The 1936 ocean liner is now a floating hotel with 347 rooms, where a room with two twin beds goes for $141 a night and $146 a night for a full-size bed.”

‘“It could be like that,’ Kaplan told the paper. ‘But as affordable housing instead of hotel.’”

Ha!

Something just doesn’t seem right here.

Why in the world would cruise ship companies be contacting the Oakland City Council, offering to let the city use their ships for housing homeless people?

Would anyone like to take a guess as to how long it would be before the ship was completely trashed and deemed worthless?

One month?

Two months?

Three months?

I’m sure these cruise ship companies have an interest in doing something along the lines of the Queen Mary in Long Beach, with a hotel type of situation; not as some sort of floating homeless repository!

There are also many port related issues and regulatory issues standing in the way of this happening as well.

It’s obvious that the liberal politicians are confused and haven’t done their homework…, like usual, regarding this brilliant idea.

“Cruise ships have been used as emergency housing before. In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, the Federal Emergency Management Agency chartered three luxury cruise liners to provide housing for up to 8,000 people that were left homeless after the storm. That $236 million contract was later scrutinized in a study released in 2006 by House Democrats, which said it proved ‘wasteful for the federal taxpayer’ because it ended up costing $50,000 to house a single person for six months, more than $300 per person for each night’s lodging.”

Remember the words, “at no or low cost to the city?”

The logical progression of this line of thinking would be to eventually buy an island and dump the homeless people off there for a permanent vacation!

Out of sight out of mind!

These liberals are really something, aren’t they?

That being said, I would like to offer my services and submit for your consideration, my proposal to deal with this homeless crisis.

Typically, communities are spending an adequate amount of money to address their homeless problem…, they’re just not spending their money appropriately or wisely.

There are many different reason for being “homeless.”

First, we need to divide the homeless into areas of situation and areas of need.

Families are treated differently, and routed to a family specific center.  Families would have all of the same considerations that individuals do plus the additional considerations for any children, regarding family continuity, safety considerations and school requirements.

acruise 11

If we’re dealing with an individual, we need to determine what exactly their situation is and route them at an appropriate assistance center.

Each of the following determinations would have its own specific assistance center.

We start and the top of this list and work our way down.  A person may fit into multiple stops on this list before finally not being “homeless” anymore.

Our overall goal is to not have anyone living on the streets, and to make sure everyone is being properly treated for whatever may be ailing them.

Is the person physically ill?

Is the person mentally ill?

Is the person addicted to drugs?

Does the person have an alcohol addiction?

Is this person disabled, receiving assistance, but needs shelter?

Does this person need shelter and help getting assistance?

acruise 10

Does this person need shelter and help getting employment?

Is this person a victim of circumstances not covered above?

 

Once the proper determination has been made, the individual would either receive the required medical treatment, be treated for their respective mental illness, treated for their addiction, and/or assisted with their administrative processes.

Our homeless population doesn’t need “band aid” or “feel good” solutions.

Our homeless need real solutions, and so do we.

People don’t mind paying for things that make sense, are effective, and that are run efficiently.

If I ever come across a government program like this I’ll let you know.

Until then, we can always hope.

California sounds like a nice place to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there.

On second thought, it doesn’t really sound like a place I’d care to visit anymore either!

Don’t get me wrong, I lived in northern California for close to a year, and I loved it…, but that was over 40 years ago.

Things there sure appear to have changed.

Besides the earthquakes, forest fires, oppressive taxes, expensive gas, poop and homeless people laying around everywhere, an out of control drug problem, and over 5 million undocumented immigrants, we now see a steep rise in shoplifting, thefts, and criminal activity across state.

Just to put some of this into perspective, there are 26 states with smaller populations than California’s illegal immigrant population!

And California is nicknamed “the golden state?”

It sounds more like a living hell to me now…, unless you’re an illegal immigrant, a welfare warrior, a drug addict, a criminal, or an elite liberal who can afford to insulate themselves from the mess they’ve helped to create.

Barnini Chakraborty of Fox News reports that, “In 2014, Prop[osition] 47 was passed to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to go after serious, violent offenders. Data shows that after Prop 47 passed, shoplifting and thefts increased.”

Gee…, who could have predicted that?  Apparently not any of the democrats out there in California.

aca 11

“Fox News spoke with San Francisco and Oakland shop owners about the recent rise in crime.”

“In a lighted garage on one of San Francisco’s busiest streets, a young man in baggy trousers and messy brown hair pulled down his pants. He had been hiding two pairs of stolen jeans with the tags still on them. He handed them to another man waiting nearby, took some money, pulled up his pants and headed back into another store on Market Street — home to the city’s high-end designers and big-chain retail shops.”

“These brazen acts of petty theft and shoplifting are a dangerous and all-too-common consequence of Proposition 47, a referendum passed five years ago that critics say effectively gives shoplifters and addicts the green light to commit crimes as long as the merchandise they steal or the drugs they take are less than $950 in value. The decision to downgrade theft of property valued below the arbitrary figure from felony to misdemeanor, together with selective enforcement that focuses on more ‘serious’ crimes, has resulted in thieves knowing they can brazenly shoplift and merchants knowing the police will not respond to their complaints, say critics.”

“Over in the City by the Bay’s famous Tenderloin district, Cassie, a 21-year-old mother of two and a former heroin junkie, told Fox News that when times were tough, she too has stolen from stores.”

‘“If my babies need diapers or formula, who is going to get that for me? No one. I have to do it,’ she said. ‘They ain’t out here arresting people for (shoplifting) and everyone knows it.’”

“Proposition 47 is seen by critics as one of California’s biggest blunders. Supported by the state Democratic Party and championed by the American Civil Liberties Union, the referendum was passed by a wide margin in 2014. The idea behind it was to reduce certain non-violent felonies to misdemeanors in order to free up resources for cops and prosecutors to focus on violent offenders.”

“Since Proposition 47 was passed, there has been an increase in theft across the state. Cities like San Francisco have seen organized crime rings turn shoplifting into a well-organized racket involving desperate thieves and unscrupulous black-market re-sellers.”

“Among the nation’s 20 largest cities, San Francisco now has the highest rate of property crime, which includes theft, shoplifting and vandalism.”

Wow!  You would have to say that San Francisco is a liberal policy over-achiever!

You should be in line to win some kind of award from your fearless leader, and representative, Nancy Pelosi.

“Del Seymour, founder of the non-profit Code Tenderloin, told Fox News that fencers – often from Mexico and Guatemala – set up shop in the middle of the day and night around the city’s United Nations Plaza area. He said he’s also noticed that the stealers and dealers have gotten bolder by the day. The retail heists taking place, he said, aren’t some small-time operation but instead a sophisticated network of international dealers who cross the border to buy stolen goods.”

“Seymour believes San Francisco is stuck in a cycle and, until it’s able to pull itself out, the problem will continue. Drug addicts, who are often homeless, need money for a fix so they walk into a store, steal merchandise, sell it for half the value and use the money they made to buy more drugs. Seymour added that the mayor and elected city officials have been spending too much time and money trying to coddle addicts and have done nothing to eliminate San Francisco’s drug problem.”

“The problem isn’t just San Francisco-based. Across the state, retailers say they have been hit hard by shoplifters since Prop 47 went into effect.”

“In San Diego County, 7-Eleven franchise owner Jassi Dhillon told NBC 7 that he has to deal with shoplifters at all six of his store locations.

‘“It’s happening every day, hour by hour,’ he said.”

“Dhillon said shoplifting isn’t a priority to law enforcement and said when cops do show up, the shoplifter has left the store or isn’t concerned about the citation they are issued.”

‘“It’s becoming a lifestyle for us now because we can’t do anything much except take the loss,’ he said.”

“Rachel Michelin, president of the California Retailers Association, said shoplifting is not only hurting retailers but is also ‘becoming a public safety issue for consumers.’”

“She said black-market dealers frequently cross state lines because they know California will go easy on them if caught.”

‘“They know what they’re doing. They will bring in calculators and get all the way up to the $950 limit,’ Michelin told Fox News, adding that ‘one person will go into a store, fill up their backpack, come out, dump it out and go right back in and do it all over again.’”

“Michelin said she’s seen footage from member retailers that she described as ‘completely insane.’”

‘“They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it. They know no one is going to prosecute them.’ — Rachel Michelin, president of California Retailers Association.”

‘“They will go into a grocery store, steal alcohol and walk out the front door with it,’ she said. ‘They know no one is going to prosecute them. The district attorneys aren’t.’”

“She added that there are even more sinister acts afoot. Many out-of-state crime rings use children to do their dirty work because they know they’re low on the totem pole of prosecutions.”

‘“There are folks that are using and exploiting children,’ she said. ‘But I also think that teenagers know that there are no consequences anymore. It’s part of a game. If you get caught, all you have to do is get out of the store.’”

‘“Law enforcement [officials] are trying to protect the streets and then they might do a sting and arrest a bunch of people but then the district attorney will drop it or downgrade the charges,’ she said.”

“It’s a frustrating dynamic for sure, but until the state finds a fix, retailers have been reaching into their own pockets to hire private security guards but even then there are no guarantees that the stealing will stop. In fact, all that private guards can do is observe and report thefts.”

“Frustrated business owners say they feel their needs are being ignored by elected officials.”

“Fox News asked Democratic Mayor London Breed’s office six separate times for an interview or to comment on this story. Her office did not respond to a single request about the growing crisis. Fox News also reached out to the district attorney’s office multiple times but did not get a response.”

Ha!  No kidding!

How dare anyone try and hold these democrats accountable for their actions?!

‘“Big and small businesses are hit hard financially by these thefts, which often endanger employees and discourage law-abiding customers. SFPD is collaborating closely with local businesses and our partner agencies to deter and investigate these crimes to make our city even safer and enable businesses to prosper,’ San Francisco Police Chief William Scott said in the press release forwarded to Fox News.”

Okay, Chief.  You just keep on collaborating there while you keep on kissing the backsides of all of the “all talk and no do (at least no doing of anything positive or effective) politicians there.

As with most liberal policies, law abiding, productive citizens, receive little or no consideration.

They are just left to pay the bills and contend with the fallout of all of these great liberal ideas!

Conservatives are being victimized by “political bigots” almost daily now.

Wait…, what?  “Political bigots?”

Yes…, “political bigots.”

We all tend to associate bigotry with racism or cultural differences.

But “bigotry” is defined as “the intolerance toward those who hold different opinions from oneself.”

And like I said, we see this intolerance, by “the left,” displayed constantly these days.

bigots 9

Hence, “political bigotry.”

bigots 1

According to Brie Stimson of Fox News, “A charity event planned in honor of an officer killed in a 2018 mass shooting at a country music bar in in Southern California has been postponed indefinitely — reportedly because a police chief [Thousand Oaks, CA, Police Chief Tim Hagel] didn’t want Republicans invited.”

Well isn’t he special?!

Isn’t he the enlightened one?!

Isn’t he the intolerant one?!

How rude!

What a B-I-G-O-T, BIGOT!

“The Blue Bowl, a charity flag football game, was intended to raise money for the family of fallen Ventura County Sgt. Ron Helus as well as other officers killed in the line of duty, FOX 11 of Los Angeles reported.”

“Helus died last Nov. 7, when a 28-year-old suspect allegedly attacked the Borderline Bar and Grill in Thousand Oaks, killing a total of 13 people and wounding about a dozen others.”

bigots 2

“Thousands of dollars had already been raised for fallen officers’ families, but the money is now being returned to donors because Thousand Oaks Police Chief Tim Hagel reportedly withdrew the police department because Trump supporters would be speaking at the event.”

Where do these people come from, and who do they think they are?

He should resign his position as Thousand Oaks Police Chief and assume his position as the Chief of the liberal thought police!

bigots 11

“He basically said over and over in the conversation, ‘This is not Trump country, that slogan “Make America Great” is not favorable, popular, within 1,200 square miles, and that we don’t want Republicans here.’ ‘I could not believe it,’ Mike Randall, vice president of the Fallen Officers Foundation, said, according to FOX 11.”

“We don’t want Republicans here?!”

Seriously, Chief?

bigots 5

You do realize we live in America, don’t you?

You do realize that Donald Trump is the duly elected President of The United States…, and that California, your state, is one of The United States, don’t you?

You do realize this isn’t NAZI Germany, don’t you?

‘“The only thing,’ and I quote, ‘the only thing you [could have done to make] this worse, Mike, was to invite Dick Cheney and Sarah Huckabee Sanders,’ [the Chief said], and I went, Wow, are you kidding me?”

No…, he’s not kidding Ms. Stimson.

You know how I know he’s not kidding?

Because these fascist bigots have no sense of humor whatever.

bigots 3

bigots 10

“Both Democrats and Republicans were invited to the event. Gov. Gavin Newsom’s public safety liaison, Trump supporter Scott Baio, who attended Helus’ church, and Trump-supporting singer Joy Villa were all scheduled to attend.”

“The Ventura County Sheriff’s Department issued a statement, saying:

‘“The Blue Bowl event was represented as a charitable flag football tournament to raise funds for the family of Sergeant Ron Helus. An event that would honor Ron’s memory and provide support to his wife Karen and son Jordan. As the event began to materialize, we became concerned with the behavior of some of the organizers of the event. Although I believe the organizers had good intentions, the event was moving in a direction we no longer felt comfortable supporting.”

And when you say “we,” Chief, you really mean “you,” don’t you?

bigots 7

“Singer Villa called the chief’s response ‘disgusting.’”

‘“This is not OK. This is prejudice, hello?’ she [Villa] said. ‘You’re shutting down an event because of the way conservatives think, because I support the president? This is disgusting, I’m appalled, and in all my years being an out conservative, I’ve never seen something so despicable like this.’”

I’m sorry to say, Joy, this political bigotry is quickly becoming the new normal.

There is no middle ground anymore.

It’s truly “us” against “them” now.

And that’s fine…, just don’t pretend like it’s not.

WINNING!

“Sleepless in Seattle?” No…, homeless in Seattle.

Did you know that Seattle spends $100,000 “to help” every homeless man, woman and child there!

Yes folks…, it’s true.

$100,000 a person!!!

Seattle and its surrounding suburbs spend ONE BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR addressing the homeless situation there!

So what can be the problem you ask?

Well, the simple answer is that Seattle is considered by many to be the most liberal city in the United States.

homeless 1

When liberals are running the show, NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS EVER ENOUGH!

Think about it!

If you just gave a homeless family of four $100,000 each, or $400,000 (I was always good at math!), they should be able to live very comfortably.

In fact, more comfortably than most people in this country!

$400,000 a year would allow you a mortgage or rent payment of over $8,000 a month, spending only a quarter of your money for housing!

That would leave this family over $300,000 a year for utilities, food, and anything else they would need.

In other words…, THEY’D BE LIVING PRETTY DAMN GOOD!

Even a single homeless person could afford a mortgage or rent payment of $4,000 a month with over $4,000 left over for other needs.

Again…, a better available budget than most Americans.

SO WHAT THE HELL IS THE PROBLEM HERE!!!

homeless 3

I know rent in Seattle is expensive, but it isn’t that much!

Oh yeah…, I forgot…, we have liberals in charge here.

homeless 2

The liberals/democrats don’t really want to solve the problem…, they want to retain their power and their bureaucracy, while punishing and blaming the people who pay for all of their foolishness.

homeless 5

homeless 4

Ok, granted, many of these homeless people have mental health issues and/or drug addiction problems.

THIS IS STILL MORE THAN ENOUGH MONEY TO HOUSE THEM AND TREAT THEM!!!

With that much money being spent, THERE IS NO EXCUSE WHY THESE PEOPLE HAVE TO LIVE OUT ON THE STREET!

NO EXCUSE!

So where is all of this money going if it’s not going to the help the homeless people up there in Seattle?

You can bet the money is mostly going to an “army” of county administrators, and staff who do their best to make sure that, with whatever money is left, there are enough clean needles to go around for all of the homeless drug users.

If the situation wasn’t so sad and pathetic, it’d be comical.

homeless 6

Oh…, and did you know that Seattle is in King county there in Washington state?

Yes.  They renamed their county after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. back in 1986.

I doubt that Dr. King knew where the hell Seattle was, nor would he probably care.

I’m sure he appreciated the sentiment, however.

According to Barnini Chakraborty of Fox News, “Seattle residents blame inefficient elected officials for homeless problem, and say they’ve ‘lost faith’ in system.”

Really?!

They just figured all that out now?!

Who do they think elected these buffoons?

We’ve got the clueless electing the brainless up there in Seattle.

Did you also realize that “the richest man in America calls Seattle home?”

These  ultra rich people tend to donate quite a bit of money…, mostly to ease their guilt.

homeless 7

The “richest man in America” could easily match the billion dollars being spent by taxpayers in Seattle, and double all of the figures we showed could be available for the homeless there.

homeless 8

Yes…, “the richest man in America call Seattle home, and “so do thousands of others who are forced onto the streets because they are too poor, too addicted or too detached from reality. At night, the city’s homeless sleep wherever they can — in tents crammed in parking garages, in parks or under highway overpasses. Some feel victimized by a society that has moved on without them. Others feel preyed upon by politicians eager to push pet projects and scattered initiatives that make themselves look good but do little else. Sick of stepping over used condoms, broken lighters and needles, residents say they are heartbroken to see the city they’ve loved turn into a dangerous, drug-infested den of filth and human misery.”

Sounds lovely!

“Seattle officials are quick to blame big businesses operating in the area — Starbucks, Microsoft and Amazon — for driving up housing costs.”

Typical liberal move.  Trying to shift the blame onto the business sector.

Damn these big businesses for providing thousands of jobs to the people of our community!

I think I’ve shown that affording the rent in Seattle should not be an issue for these homeless people.

“In an effort to address the homeless crisis, Seattle’s City Council has looked at different ways to raise money. In May 2018, they unanimously approved a $275 tax per employee on Seattle’s largest employers. Pitched as a progressive revenue source aimed at tackling homelessness, the tax was estimated to raise $47 million a year.”

They want to spend more money?!

Like I said earlier…, when democrats are running the show, NO AMOUNT OF MONEY IS EVER GOING TO BE ENOUGH!

“Residents say there is a deep disconnect between them and those in charge and say elected officials are tone-deaf and offer up simple solutions to a complex problem.”

Uh, in my opinion it is just the opposite.

Elected officials are offering up complex and costly solutions to a problem that could be addressed with simpler, common sense, solutions.

See ya…, wouldn’t want to be ya, Cali!   

Gregg Re of Fox News reports that “Organizers of a long-running initiative to secure California’s secession from the United States now say they want to give away nearly half of the state, including all of its federal land, to form an “autonomous Native American nation.”

cali 9

‘“Calexit,’ as the proposal for California’s secession is known, was given the green light by the state government earlier this year to begin collecting signatures to place the measure on the November ballot.”

“But the revamp announced by Calexit’s founders on Tuesday adds an additional objective: constructing “the first ever autonomous Native American nation in North America,” by giving Native Americans all federal lands in the state, running from the border with Mexico to the state boundary shared with Oregon.”

cali 8

Ha!  Typical liberal “stupidness;” thinking they can give away something they don’t even own.

Newsflash…, those lands are called “federal lands” for a reason…, because the Federal Government owns them!

cali 7

Taking what isn’t yours is one thing (something liberals have a knack for doing): giving away something you don’t have is another.

Oh…, and it’s very generous of these Calexit supporters to want to give this federal land to the Native Americans…, NOT!

Federal land out west is typically comprised of one thing…, a whole lot of sand, a whole lot of rocks and a whole lot of sun…, in other words…, desert.  And this land is no exception.

Calexit supporters say they want to “take back their tax dollars…,” but I honestly don’t see how Calexit would accomplish that.  “Take back their tax dollars” from who…, the lizards, the snakes and the scorpions?  I think they’re just confused, as usual.

‘“Why not do something to right some of the wrongs of the past to the Native American people, and give them back their land?’ Calexit co-founder Louis J. Marinelli said Tuesday.”

If you’re going to go there, Louis…, why don’t you “give” them back the whole state, and not just the crap desert land you don’t even want?

What a bunch of total hypocrites.

cali 3

And by the way…, what exactly do you mean by “right some of the wrongs of the past to the Native American people?”

There is nothing to make “right.”

The Native Americans that were here at the time got conquered.

People from Europe came over here, kicked their a$$es, and took all of their land.

It has happened thousands of times in thousands of lands throughout history.

It generally does not go well for the people who got conquered.

All things considered…, the Native Americans here have been treated better than most.

Like they say…, “You could look it up.”

“Because most of the federal land would include conservative-leaning portions of California, the plan also would create a ‘buffer zone between Donald Trump’s America and the new independent California Republic,’ another co-founder of the initiative, Marcus Ruiz Evans, said in a statement.”

Well, Mr. Marcus Ruiz Evans…, congratulations…, I think I’m stupider now for just having read that!

Let’s just move on.

“Speaking to Fox News, Marinelli said the plan wouldn’t be unduly disruptive to Californians.”

Oh no…, not at all…, at least not until they got their tax bill the following year!

“Our campaign is not motivated by the shifting balance of political power in Washington,” Marinelli said in an email. “We are motivated by the fact that California is a distinct society with the capability to govern itself independent of a country whose values are in direct conflict with ours, and a country whose government system [and its institutions] is broken and obsolete.”

Ahh yes!  And California’s government is such a shining example to us all as to how a proper government should work!

Too funny.

cali 4

“On July 4, Calexit staged a rally at the state capitol in Sacramento, calling on Trump supporters to ‘get out’ of the state, and decrying the American ‘occupation’ of California.”

Well that’s not very nice!

Obviously the new Independent Republic of California will not tolerate anyone in their country who has an opposing viewpoint or opinion…, something in the mold of the old Soviet Union.

‘“The Fourth of July is no longer a day to celebrate in California,’ the campaign said in an Independence Day statement.”

What I want to know is…, how did California get soooo screwed up soooo quickly?

I lived in California for a year, at one point, and I loved it.

California used to be a beautiful state that represented America’s pioneering spirit, adventuresome spirit and Independent spirit.

Now California represents illegal immigrants, giant homeless camps, Hollywood elitist entitlement and anything you could categorize as weird.

Sad.

I now view California as a cancerous growth on our country that I would love to see removed.

cali 2

I’m not so sure the other democrats from around the country would be particularly excited about losing California’s 52 electoral votes in presidential elections, however.

“There have been multiple efforts in the past for California to break away from the rest of America.  They have either been withdrawn or failed to gather the signatures required to advance.”

“But enthusiasm for such measures has grown in recent years.  A 2014 Reuters poll showed that only 20 percent of Californians wanted to secede; in 2017, after Trump’s election, the number grew to 32 percent.”

“Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.” – George Carlin
