Dead Flowers

send me dead flowers for my wedding, and I won't forget to put roses on your grave...

so the friends and family of Mallory Dies want a plaque to remember her by...and that's a good idea ... they are working with the City of Santa Barbara to realize this goal....I read this on Noozhawk.. I also read that local celeb Paula Lopez was close to a plea deal in her DUI case..geez, drunks sure do waste alot of  taxpayer time and money..and lives


and the latest restaurant in SB? the Drunken Crab!! Santa Barbara has a drinking problem that one million sponges couldn't dry

Mallory of course was killed by Lois Capps' lover Raymond Morua one night in Santa Barbara..Morua was really drunk and ran down Mallory...then he fled and crashed into a sober or sane person would do this...

so we know now drinking and driving is dangerous...both the News-Press and Noozhawk were anti-cop and pro drunk driver....Noozhawk has matured a bit but the News-Press has remained pro-booze mainly because Nipper peddles the stuff

the City of SB cops had an aggressive DUI team that kept drunks off the road...then when they pulled over creeps like Peter Lance and Tony Dununzio, the drunks tried to run the asylum...Lance went to the News-Press to write a 5-part series on himself after he got busted for DUI and tried in vain to blame the cops instead of being a man and accepting responsibility for his DUI..and Denunzio was just a mess but still got the city to pay him $100000 for his rough arrest...then Denunzio goes and gets drunk at the Harbor and gets arrested AGAIN!!!


I mean this is all just so stupid..the News-Press, Lance and drunk-lovin' attorney Darryl Genis all had a hand in killing Mallory Dies!! these cocktail-addicted turdbrains don't want cops pulling over drunk drivers and that's why Mallory Dies got killed...the  Lance-News-Press slimeball effort to sabotage the cops ability to pull people over probably made Raymond more brazen in his drunk driving! and the irony is Peter wrote another series in the News-Press about Mallory and Morua, not because of drunk driving or killing someone, but because Raymond worked for Lois Capps, an arch enemy of Wendy McCuckoo!!!

maybe they should  erect a statue in De La Guerra Plaza showing Wendy, Peter Lance, Darryl, Nipper, Scott and a yellow dog...

all pissing on Mallory's grave

No Woman No Cry

no water, we die

what planet am I this still Earth? ok so we got that straightened out..but earth is like covered with like 70% water right..well, where's the water??

I was watching the SB City Council meeting, the drought update by the city Water Guy and Lake Cachuma is like 14% capacity, not 70% and you know what that means? we are all in big fucking means that Lake Cachuma is an unfunded liability!

and I learned the new city council member Jason Dominguez should change his name to Dumbinguez...he asks the lamest questions and for a lawyer doesn't know much about politics or city departments....then the Water Guy says the new reclaimed plant caught on fire!! geez usually it take a few months before city workers destroy a new expensive piece of equipment!

apparently the new plant uses acid to clean the media that filters the water..the old plant used air and water to backwash the filters but the problem was the old plant was designed for WATER treatment not wastewater was a prototype but still worked well for fifteen years or so..but the News-Press should have caught the fire story

so water..yeah let the fight's February 23 and about 80 degrees outside...we've had a heat wave for a week or so and it just won't quit...and El Nino hasn't brought any real rain..that last big storm was brought by Old Man Winter...

and all those new wineries are stealing good water..this region cannot support this type of doesn't have the rainfall like France or Spain does...

and growth! these stupid Republicans and some Democrats think the way to deal with too many people here is to widen the freeways!!

no brains, no headaches

Down On The Corner

out in the street

Poorboy twangs the rhythm out on his Kalamazoo.
Willy goes into a dance and doubles on kazoo.

so I've seen the blood moon, the blue moon and the supermoon, the Rev Sun Yung Moon..but never the Snow Moon..last night she came and was just lovely!

now I'm not gonna dump on Michigan because of the Uber driver who went berserk in Kalamazoo and killed 7 people...and I'm not gonna dump on Islam because of some crazy mongrel religious fanatics killed 14 people in San Bernadino..and I'm not gonna dump on Virginia because two Virginia Tech students kidnapped and killed a 13-year old girl...

and I'm not gonna dump on Chicago because loser Richard Speck killed all those nurses in the 1960s...

America is a violent place sometimes ...people snap and break...and's been going on since Cain and Abel....and I am not my brother's keeper...

but America is mostly a paradise..for me anyway

ok so with that outta the way, I have to say I love Michigan...Motown, American automobiles....and Gibson guitars...located in Kalamazoo in the 1960s, the Gibson factory put out Epiphones and Gibson guitars-some of the finest guitars ever union men and women...if you got a guitar with a blue sticker inside, made in Kalamazoo Michigan, you have reason to be proud..and years ago they made these kool little blue electric guitars called Kalamazoos..budget guitars that are really awesome and collectable..and fun...

my Kalamazoo is a 1963 Epiphone Bard 12-string...been a round the block a few times but sounds incredible..they simply can't duplicate this sound today...

and they never will

Mule Skinner Blues

Hey hey yeah Do you need another mule skinner Down on your new mud run? ... hey hey, little water boy

so we got Ernie and Don Katich on public TV....Katich is the operations manager of the News-Press...and Wendy's water boy

oh by the way, some upcoming trials/hearings for Wendy and Don
Wrongful Termination: 04/01/2016 8:30 AM 1486720 Ampersand Publishing LLC Geck, Donna D SB Dept 4 1) Case Management Conference Unlimited Wrongful Termination (36)

Wrongful Death: 05/09/2016 9:30 AM 1483950 Ampersand Publishing, LLC Rigali, James F SM Dept 2 1) Jury Trial 23-PI/PD/WD Tort - Other - Civil

now Ernie and Don were talking about the City of Santa Barbara and the cops and Don still thinks Peter Lance is innocent and the SB cops are crooked..still thinks that after all the evidence to the contrary!! and after all these years Katich thinks the Lance series on Lance's own DUI was brilliant!!

and Don says the stock market is in it's fell from a high of 18000 down to 15000 and it's still strong bouncing back without having to bail private businesses out! basically investors panic and there's enough room in the current market to absorb that idiocy...unlike when Bush left ofice with the DOW at 8000!

Ernie doesn't get the stock marker either..he says TESLA is tanking but it's up around $200/share..GOOGLE's at about $600/share and AMAZON's at $400/share..and Don say the gov't is artificially pumping up the stock market...

so argument after argument Don and Ernie are going around in circles and not making much sense.....Ernie's an old cantankerous guy and he exaggerates way too much

I can't believe how dumb Don is as he tries to quote JFK...Don says in the words of JFK "don't ask what your gov't can do for you, ask what you can do for your gov't"..WTF???

then they talked about Chic Fil A...and how the ARB lambasted the bible belt conservative owner for being a bigot .....always good to expose teabaggers!!

and then they talked about some study the city commissioned from a consultant that cost $200000...the study was suggested by the new Public Works director, a woman, and Ernie thinks if she makes $250000 she should not need a consultant....the thing is Ernie was too lazy to ask anyone in city gov't personally..instead he wrtie letters to the News-Press

but consider this..Ernie has been bitching about the city for years so now the new director is looking at ways to change how business is done...the City has been in this mode since the 1990s..changing over to computers and SCADA systems to save money and require less manpower...using consultants is not a new thing and can be beneficial if used wisely..Don says the News-Press might investigate but now don't have any details

naturally, Ernie and Don don't understand the City gov't because they are private sector guys...the private sector is notorious for cutting corners and fraud and then when they get caught they blame government....remember Gov't competes with GOD and Katich is some weird-ass Christian

but as Don Katich says: "don't ask what your gov't can do for you, ask what you can do for your gov't"

Communication Breakdown

Communication Breakdown, It's always the same


"Apple did the exact right thing by not complying with the order. They are exactly right that this is a very, very slippery slope. And while the FBI is attempting to be very clear that this is a one-off request, there is no chance that it is. This will not be the last horrific event whose possible resolution could be on a smart phone. There will be many government agencies that, many times in the future, point to Apple's compliance as a precedent. Once this happens, we all roll down that slippery slope of lost privacy together. Speech can only be free when it is protected. We are only free when we can say what we feel we must, privately or publicly. We have a right to protect our speech from those, domestic or otherwise, who may watch or monitor us. Which is why encryption is vitally important to all of us." Mark Cuban /Huffington Post


this Mark Cuban character is an idiot...he owns the Dallas Mavericks and he's just an ugly ZIKA retard..and he writes like a tard, too!!

and he's stupid and so is Apple..I don't like Apple, I like oranges and fruit apples and the Beatles Apple but not the computer Apple..went straight downhill when Steve Jobs died...

the FBI wants some information encoded in a cell phone used by the San Bernadino terrorist mongrels....but Apple won't help the FBI..or the USA...they instead give aid to the enemy..the two dead bestial terrorists..religious fanatics...

Apple of course should help, should rush to help the FBI get more info on the maggots who savagely killed 14 folks in California..

anything to stop this killing behavior before it happens..we need to get info as to how and where these people waste their time, and their contacts...

once we find them we can round them up and grind them up for cat food..

but this Mark Cuban simpleton erroneouly says that we Americans will lose our rights to free speech and privacy...bullshit..there are no absolutes in the Constitution, just truths..and the truth is my right to privacy and free speech will be just fine.. I have nothing to hide and neither should Cuban

Americans have more freedom that they know what to do with..but freedom comnes with responsibilities

every American should BOYCOTT Apple and their stupid little phones..


the Dallas Mavericks suck

Shannon is gone I heard, she's drifting out to sea
She always loved to swim away
Maybe she'll find an island with a shady tree
Just like the one in our backyard

how many more dogs have to go over the Douglas Preserve cliffs before we bring change to Santa Barbara????

the lady in red is scatchin' her ass!!

dog people, I know you love your dogs more than love them and if you ask me, it's a bit odd how much you love your dogs...I mean, it's a dog for pity sake!!

and lately I've seen more and more stories about people walking their dogs then the next thing you know the dog and owner are stuck somewhere..on the bluffs on the side of a cliff...hiking up on the trails they end up tumbling down the hill and that necessitates calling the city or county rescue personnel to come rescue the person and the dog...

I've seen guys in their twenties walking dogs and they look like wussies....they walk their dogs on the bluffs, then they get stuck! talk about helpless!! you guys are the future of our great country, the long do you think it will take ISIS to attack if all the American guys are dog-walking wussies?? little zombie robots whose only concern in life is the welfare of their dogs!! geez talk about some fucked up priorites!! these folks thing dogs are some sort of status symbol..well I got news for you: no they aren't!! your low self-esteem is not your dog's problem and for that matter, it's not my problem!!! until you fall off  a cliff and use my tax dough to save you


but if you get a dog, get a smart one like Toto...he was his own dog..loyal to Dorothy but still his own man..and he saved her in the end! Toto was smart..and awful cute

but some dogs today are dumb..they wouldn't know a semi-final from a semi-trailer! when you walk on the beach next to the train tracks, there's a high possiblity the dog will run into the path of the train and get hit..that's known as physics so you shouldn't run after and try to rescue the dog, for you too will surely die...would you die for your dog???

I shudder to think of the answer because it's probably "yes"...

that's the kind of question you'd get from a girl in her twenties "will you die for me?" and naturally you'd say "yes" to get some sex..

but pretty girls like to walk their dogs too so that's ok..."pet the dog, pet the girl" I always say

but what does a guy get from a dog? companionship? nobody could possibly be that lonely..the dog wants food and that's about it...he doesn't really care about you..

if he did, he'd rescue you from the cliff you just fell over!

Take It To The Limit

one more time

watching the GOP debates I am appalled at how woefully stupid the candidates are...Marco, Ted and Ben I was happy to see Justice Scalia had the good sense to die now..and stir some fear in the conservatives who think Supreme Court justices should all be conservatives...but there's no litmus test....the Supreme Court's most basic power/function is to test laws for constitutionality, a fact lost on Cruz and Rubio, both big fans of Antonin

Antonin Scalia was a bumbling fat stupid pompous old man from Siciily or one of those other greasy places....a Supreme Court justice appointed for life by Ronald Reagan..

not that I wish death on anybody except you- know-who, but 79 is too old to be making important legal decisions about the future of America..

and the Teacher's Union can breathe a sigh of relief...some conservative scab teachers cried to the SCOTUS about dues and fees..when the teacher contract is bargained, the conservative teachers will galdly accept the raise but don't want to say their fees were part of they let the other teachers will willingly pay dues carry the freeloaders!! if the conservative teachers don't like unions, they can try teaching at a private school!!

web: With Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, the court’s conservative majority had the opportunity to make the entire U.S. public sector akin to a right-to-work zone. That would have given hundreds of thousands of public-sector workers the prerogative to opt out of funding the unions that represent them -- delivering a substantial blow to both organized labor and the Democratic Party it pours money into.

But with a 4-4 split in the court along ideological lines, there’s now a good chance that the lower court’s ruling in favor of the union will stand.

For years, conservative antiunion groups have sought to ban fair share fees, and Friedrichs provided perhaps their most sweeping opportunity yet. The group of California teachers named in the suit argued that public-sector unionism is inherently political and that being forced to pay fair share fees therefore violated their First Amendment rights. If the court agreed, no member of a public-sector union in the U.S. could be compelled to pay them.

In another 2013 interview, Scalia stated that "In order for capitalism to work, in order for it to produce a good and stable society, traditional Christian virtues are essential". Scalia son was a Catholic priest and catholic priests molested thousands of children....that is not virtuous

God killed Justice Antonin Scalia because Jesus was a member of the Carpenters Union!!

so... tonight I will have a nice spaghetti dinner with lotsa spicy meatballs in honor of Justice Antonin Scalia.....pizano!

why do people lie??

tell me why people lie

ok so The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is trying to pull a fast one by "delisting the Channel Island fox and "improving" the status of the Santa Catalina foxes...

ughhh....this was an attempt to get more tourists to see the foxes..they have even developed the islands with little tourist cabins..come see the cute l'il foxes!! total scam


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFW) announced a proposal to delist three subspecies of island fox native to California's Channel Islands due to thriving populations. If the proposal is approved, it will be the fastest successful recovery for any Endangered Species Act-listed mammal in the U.S.

The removal of the San Miguel, Santa Rosa and Santa Cruz Island fox subspecies from the Federal List of Threatened and Endangered Wildlife would be a historic success.

The USFW is also proposing to improve the status of island foxes on Santa Catalina Island from endangered to threatened.

(Source: Ventura Fish and Wildife Office)


now I've been through this one hunnerd times but these people, the National Parks Service, the Nature Conspiracy and the USFW invented a problem and created a solution by 'restoring' the Channel Islands....and people fell for it!!

but in reality, there were no issues with the foxes that would indicate extinction... and the NPS stole the islands from some ranchers...and they killed thousands of animals by shooting them from helicopters!! they employed some hippie biologists and a fat parks superintendent and "saved" the inbred Channel Island foxes...but from what??

next, they put out many press releases congratulating themselves on their success..but it's all bullshit...these folks are patting themselves on the back but should be arrested for animal abuse..where was  PETA or the US Humane Society or #69 when all the killing was going on?

*Tim Setnica the former superintendent of the Channel Islands Nationals park admitted in an article to the Santa Barbara Independent that the studies tying the decline of the fox to wild pigs was a cooked study designed to get funding.

* The remaining deer and elk will be killed, gunned down by helicopter.... "The non-native deer and elk are a species of hoofed animal that didn't evolve in the island environment, and they are known to do harm to the natural and cultural resources," Menard said. However, when asked to provide examples, Menard said she'd "rather at this point, not." ... "Personally, i think that's incorrect," he said. [Will Wooley, great grandson of original island owner] "These animals have lived here for over 100 years. At some point, I don't get why they don't get to call this place home."

plenty of examples of the propaganda from the NPS..and the Nature Con..these people are so full of shit it makes my head spin!!

but these new foxes are the results of captive breeding, radio collars, and distemper shots..the wild has been restored out of them..they are constantly being monitored, live in a controlled environment and now there's an overpopulation!! they're like rats!! and then you kow what will happen..the biologists will be able to kill the foxes to control the population!!

just like the wolves: Once wolves are removed from the list of threatened and endangered species, owners of livestock, guard animals, or domestic animals may shoot or destroy wolves that pose an immediate threat to their animals, on property they own or lease in accordance with local statutes.

"Immediate threat" means the observed behavior of a wolf in the act of stalking, attacking, or killing livestock, a guard animal, or a domestic pet under the supervision of the owner.

Additionally, the owner of a domestic pet may shoot or destroy a wolf posing an immediate threat on any property, as long as the owner is supervising the pet.

so they killed the pigs and golden eagles to save the retard foxes, now there's too many foxes so they delisted them, now the feds can kill the foxes, ie take over where the golden eagles left off!!

that's irony for ya

I'm so full of love I could burst apart and start to cry

1967.. the Summer Of

now the chance to see Grace Slick and Janis Joplin in the same place.. a few weeks apart back in the 1960s was pretty Earl Warren...chick singers that owned the airwaves....Grace with Jefferson Airplane and Janis with Big Brother and the Holding Company and then later solo...

it's hard to explain the times if you weren't there but I was..just a kid but thought Grace was a princess...god she was so beautiful with the hippie gowns and long shiny brown hair and big brown eyes ..and the rocking voice..the anthems: "Somebody To Love" written by her brother-in-law Darby Slick!

and "White Rabbit" by Grace..this was Grace's Band the Great Society before the Airplane...the radio played some honey in those days...the Airplane took those raw songs, polished them up and turned them into gold...and it didn't hurt to have Jorma and Jack rounding out the rhythm section!

so Jefferson Airplane's Paul Kantner died...75 years old...I can't think in those terms but David Bowie warned: look out you rock and rollers, pretty soon now you're gonna get older..CH-CH-Changes...

but Kantner was a manic rhythm guitar player with that Rickenbacker held close....those guitars from the 1960s are some of the best made instruments they command big money depending on condition or originality....hard to find a new Rickenbacker for less than $ old one is off the charts..but the Beatles and the Byrds and the Airplane used them so naturally guitar players want to duplicate that's hard to do with a cheap Korean guitar...

but I love hearing the Airplane even today....oh, listen to "Today" and it's just beautiful...Grace and Marty Balin singing...Marty and Kantner wrote it

there's some obscure stuff away from the Airplane and it's always interesting to hear.... Grace and Paul did Sunfighter and their song to daughter "China" is lovely...there's a legacy here, a musical legacy that's cast in stone

the San Francisco sound with the Airplane and Dead...the LA sound with the Doors,  Byrds, Beach Boys and Buffalo Springfield..and all the rest that filled the clubs: on the Sunset Strip....the Whiskey, the Troubadour, the, what scene that was!! it was very exciting...and the bands were coming and going up and down the coast...Kantner joined forces with Crosby and Stills to write "Wooden Ships"..Paul wrote most of the lyrics, Crosby the music and Stills added the "horror grips us as we watch you die" verse

it was a big business..these weren't a bunch of wayward dumb hippies..they were extremely talented capitalist musicians...

Neil Young sang on Time Fades Away: "there we were on the Sunset Strip, playing our songs to the highest bid, the businessmen crowded around, they came to hear the golden sound"

and they made a lot of money...and they worked hard!!! sure drugs were part of it but the drug use was hyped in most cases (except for Crosby)

"Wooden ships on the water, very free and easy"....inspired by a sailing trip on Crosby's boat, with Grace along for the ride

sure would like to play one of Kantner's Rickenbackers though

Paint It Black

I see a red door and I want it painted black

oh so it really is the Santa Barbara International Film Festival ....any black films playing I wonder...any black actors being honored I wonder?

American Flags draped on buildings is against the flag code

Flag Code: The flag should not be used as "wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery", or for covering a speaker's desk, draping a platform, or for any decoration in general

black..that's an interesting word....blacklist....blacklisted...there wasa time when the film industry joined  Sen Joe McCarthy's witchhunt for commies in the film biz..actually held hearings to ask actors if they've ever read Karl Marx...this was in the 1950s and if you were suspected of being a communist, they blacklsited you and killed your career in film..producer writer director actor..whatever...

the Screen Actor's Guild (SAG), which included Ronald Reagan, sided with Joe McCarthy for a time...destroyed some lives because of cold war paranoia...

now the Screen Actors Guild was a union of sorts...but it was a lame one...Reagan was twice elected as President of the Screen Actors Guild, the labor union for actors, where he worked to root out Communist influence.
 now how did Reagan work to "root out Communism" thing he did was become a snitch for the names of actors within the motion picture industry he believed were communist sympathizers...Reagan was snitch for Sen Joe McCarty and J Edgar Hoover, two of the sickest-minded Americans in history!!

Prayer in schools and a moment of silence

In 1981, Reagan became the first president to propose a constitutional amendment on school prayer. The school prayer had previously been banned by the supreme court in 1962, and Reagan's election reflected an opposition to the courts decision. Reagan's 1981 proposed amendment stated: "Nothing in this Constitution shall be construed to prohibit individual or group prayer in public schools or other public institutions. No person shall be required by the United States or by any state to participate in prayer." In a message to Congress, Reagan said that his proposed amendment would "restore the simple freedom of our citizens to offer prayer in public schools and institutions." In a nationally televised speech the following day, Rabbi Menachem M. Schneerson lauded Reagan's speech and said the moment of silence would "ensure that children grow up to be decent and upright." In 1984, Reagan again raised the issue, asking Congress "why can't [the] freedom to acknowledge God be enjoyed again by children in every schoolroom across this land?" In 1985, Reagan expressed his disappointment that the Supreme Court ruling still bans a moment of silence for public-school, and said he had "an uphill battle." In 1987 Reagan again renewed his call for Congress to support voluntary prayer in schools and end "the expulsion of God from America's classrooms. During his term in office, Reagan campaigned vigorously to restore prayer to the schools, first as a moment of prayer and later as a Moment of Silence.

just check the Constitution, Ron Ronald Reagan was a pretty strange guy...Red Scare, joining forces with J Edgar Hoover, a cross dresser, and Joe MCarthy an alcoholic whacked out Bircher whose has been reincarnated as Ted Cruz....


take a close look at the picture of Reagan riding a horse with an unknown fellow...his lover perhaps? the English saddle, the gay boots, the capri's a side of Reagan that needs to be exposed
many of these anti-liberal-Hollywood sentiments still exist among conservatives...we see more blow-em-up films and less black actors...more fluff and less real acting...less art...more propaganda

so is the film industry getting lazy? pandering to teenage girls and white old conservatives like Wendy and Fox News....

is Wendy in the closet with J Edgar this why she has a monument to President Reagan...the evidence is clear Wendy McCuckoo has used tactics that Edgar would tactics used to smear her enemies...and her fixation with Reagan has turned the News-Press into a Christian rag...

Reagan pushed for gov't sanctioned prayer in public schools? I thought he said he was for less gov't in our lives? or is that only when it fits their agenda...

so in reality, the Reagan Ranch Center on lower State Street is a place where lost conservatives worship their dead idol, Ronald they seek solace from the black man in the Whitehouse

their world is a still-life of a dead president, easy money.... and dead dreams

Don't Fence Me In

Oh, give me land, lots of land, under starry skies above Don't fence me in Let me ride through that wide open country that I love Don't fence me in

so I've been beating up on the conseravtives alot but today I will become one...but I'll need need to use my imagination and pretend, like actors do..Today's Open House at the Reagan Ranch Center is competing with the SBIFF and Ron was an actor so that's cool..the only thing worthwhile at this year's fest is Rachel McAdams..what a babe and so funny in Woody Allen's "Midnight in Paris" with Owen Wilson

but this isn't Paris, it's Santa Barbara and I gotta attend the open house...without prejudice although I know I won't see a thing about the Iran contras or Beirut massacre of 200 US troops under Ron's watch..or the inexplicable invasion of Grenada (???)

but it's Ron birthday so I say let's celebrate!

it's hot like 80 degrees again ...I need to step in the warm glow of yesterday and Ron's country charm and Nancy's no-nonsense "just say no" policy on drugs...that is the most brilliant thing any First Lady has ever said (except Elenore Roosevelt, she was nonstop brilliant)

I reach the Reagan Ranch Center and Wendy's nonprofit the Young Miss America Foundation is hosting..everyone is wearing blue jeans...I wait outside with some creepy conservatives..I check out State Street...WTF are they doing to it..used to be a casual street that leads to the beach, now it's tore up with giant weird-ass looking high-rises being erected...I guess those good old days are over...

11:00 AM rolls around and in we go..greeted by some old guy who stinks of booze!! guess he's celebratin' early..haha..I'm not surprised..then I had to sign in on a little computer...

I see no signs of Wendy or Nipper or the little stuffed monkey Bonzo which is I take the self-guided's a nice building inside with good exhibits...the little chapel upstairs and leather-bound bible that Ron used to pray..and there's the ranch Jeep and a really super cool huge old Nikon camera used by the news crews back in the day...

there's a chain saw from Ron working on the back forty cutting wood.. I used to do that up on Rancho Monte Alegre...Ron and I both knew the spirit ain't worth spit without a little exercise

then this nice old lady was eager to talk to me about Ron as I pondered a simple  wooden chair and table exhibit...there's a picture of Ron sitting at it with the news crews cordoned off...on the table is a tax's huge and thick...there's two stacks of paper...the bigger stack is the bill and the smaller pile is what Reagan removed from the bill..he said he wished the smaller pile was actually the bill...that's a cool story...and to this day the tax code has not been simplified...

this table and chair are original; the ones up at the ranch are copies she tells me

I can agree with Reagan on a few things....the first role of elected officails is to simplify gov't, religion, and everything else will follow....

and there's no need to wear anything on your sleeve...except a little sweat from hard work

96 Tears

96 tears, right now

well I'm trying to figure out what happened in Flint, Michigan and the water crisis issue...appears the white conservatives tried to save money and poisonsd the poor black residents by switching to a cheaper water supply....there's lots of parts like emergency managers, conservative governors, racism and the EPA..I'm wading thru the stories..could it happen here in the Santa Barbara way..too many white folks live here!!

homeless at Earl Warren??

the SB Film Fest is upon us...hey Jeff, get a shave and a haircut look like a homeless...

I see the News-Press has shrunk to a one page Classified Ad section..ONE PAGE!! that's pretty pathetic..what is Wendy' business model? oh yeah, she ain't got one


oh so on Saturday you can celebrate Ronald Reagan's birthday at the Reagan Ranch Center...presented by Wendy's nonprofit the Young Miss America Foundation...hmmm, I went once and it was fun maybe I'll go again..I saw a piece of the Berlin Wall, Ron's Jeep, Ron's monkey puppet..and the little chapel where he prayed...but no nothing about the Iran contras and all the other stuff.....Ron's little propaganda house I guess...

now I see something in the Independent about Earl Warren Showgrounds being used as a homeless shelter..I don't like that one's a showgrounds not a social welfare hospital...

if you're gonna help the homeless then build shelters and staff them..bring back Camarillo Hospital..

and what about churches? aren't they supposed to help the homeless, provide for the poor? or are they just tax shelters for priests to molest children? or are they just political scams to keep money funneling into Christian powerplays?? Lordy, where's all that money going that the churches get?


and over at EDHAT sheeple gettin' riled up about Wendy's pal actor Michael Douglas who was at UCSB supporting Israel...Israel of course wants to start a war with Iran because Bibi is crazy and a terrorist himself...long history of criminal abuse/killing of Palestinian children..peace is needed over there not Michael Douglas's support of Israel..I mean who cares?? Michael's got a history of abuse too...drugs and alcohol running thru the family..just google the guy: Douglas, the son of a Jewish father and an Anglican mother, was not raised with a religious affiliation, but stated in January 2015 that he now identifies as a Reform Jew. I guess that means he doesn't wear a beanie and hit his head against the wall while chanting biblical passages... His son, Dylan, had a Bar Mitzvah ceremony, and the Douglas family traveled to Jerusalem to mark the occasion.

a reform Jew? the American President? a crooked Wall Street trader....

Michael Douglas....always the actor

Greenback Dollar

spend it just as fast as I can

now in order for Donald Trump to have won the Iowa caucuses, he would have to get down on his knees in Des Moines and say he was a born-again Christian...but he didn't and he skipped the debate before the caucus and got Sarah Palin to endorse Iowans voted for Ted Cruz..a Canadian -born Texas evangelical whose preacher daddy used to be a Castro-lovin' commie...

apparently America is a Judeo-Christian nation because according to Uncle Ben Carson, God is evoked as our Creator, in the Pledge of Allegiance as "one nation under God" and because our money, printed by the US gov't, says "In God We Trust"

Aside from constitutional objections, President Theodore Roosevelt took issue with using the motto on coinage as he considered using God's name on money to be sacrilege.


well, I looked at a 20 dollar bill and under "In God We Trust" is a picture of the White the inference by our Founding Fathers is that Government is God..obviously

now remember up Santa Maria when supervisor Peter Adam and his assisitant were gettin' all riled up over some public art because it had the word "SEX" in it? Peter Adam is another one of these evangelical nuts who never stepped off daddy's farm and wants to tell everyone else how to live..well, part of a supe's job is to deal with crime in his jurisdiction...and Santa Maria is now the murder capital of the USA...they are even murdering babies and Peter Adam is worried about public art!!

I think he should sit down with another evangelical Andy Caldwell from the News-Press and figure this stuff out..

while I try to figure out Iowa
