May the Force be with you, Carrie Fisher

Star Wars was the first movie I saw in a theater as a kid, and it ruined me for anything else. At least until a mad man in a box showed up a few years later, but that’s another story. The opening sequence that introduced Princess Leia, R2-D2, C-3PO and Darth Vader blew my youngContinue reading “May the Force be with you, Carrie Fisher”

Enrique Pearce continues to slither towards freedom

After all this, Enrique Pearce stealthily slithered into San Francisco Superior Court the day before Christmas Eve to plead guilty to multiple counts of buying, receiving, possessing and distributing child pornography. His likely punishment? As a result of the guilty plea, a judge is expected to sentence Pearce to six months in county jail, whichContinue reading “Enrique Pearce continues to slither towards freedom”

POTUS and the Democrats lunge right again

POTUS Barack Obama and his beloved Democratic Party refuse to allow the holidays to slow their inexorable march to the right. The leader of a Democratic party utterly crushed by a GOP now in full control of US government sat for an interview with David Axelrod, his former advisor whose £300K advice led to LabourContinue reading “POTUS and the Democrats lunge right again”

Autopsy of an SJW

Nothing like a light, breezy topic to launch the Notes category of this blog. Nevertheless, my exit from the social-justice world has loomed quite large in my mind, I’ve no one with whom to talk about it, and since I’m not leasing this part of the internet just to let it sit here and collectContinue reading “Autopsy of an SJW”

Homelessness: San Francisco’s newest heist

Homelessness has long been an issue San Francisco has ignored in favor of well-funded “solutions” that inevitably fade into nothing but good intentions paving a road to Hell for the homeless people they’re allegedly created to help. As the San Francisco Chronicle leads a second round of mass exploitation of homeless people disguised as crusadingContinue reading “Homelessness: San Francisco’s newest heist”

Women of color are always treated as acceptable collateral damage

Women of color have long been considered acceptable collateral damage by the police state, as well as most of society in general. A white-supremacist, misogynist culture such of that of the US will always uplift and protect white women while pathologizing and attacking women of color. Benefits of doubt and sympathy versus being prosecuted toContinue reading “Women of color are always treated as acceptable collateral damage”

San Francisco City Hall heists, backpedals on sanctuary

On the first Monday following the election of Donald Trump, San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, the Board of Supervisors and others from City Hall held a photo op affirming not only their unity against the approaching Trump administration, but also San Francisco’s status as a sanctuary city. Mayor Lee tweeted, “Standing as one. We willContinue reading “San Francisco City Hall heists, backpedals on sanctuary”

Twitter’s Muslim-registry ruse

Twitter recently received praise for being the only of nine prominent tech companies to publicly refuse to assist the Trump administration in building a Muslim registry. While certainly a feel-good piece of news if you briefly glance at the headline, the reality is anything but. An enormous red flag is flapping away in the blogContinue reading “Twitter’s Muslim-registry ruse”

Accidental arson

Last evening’s fire at the Oakland Ghost Ship is another example of deadly, suspicious fires in neighborhoods suffering from gentrification. The story is often the same; a land/building owner needs tenants and/or a building gone ASAP with zero paperwork or notifications so they can sell their never-more-valuable land/building. It’s an almost foolproof scam for dues-payingContinue reading “Accidental arson”
