about being liberal or conservative anymore y'all. That is a hype offered by the fascist whores who want to confuse the people with lies while they turn this country into an aristocratic police state. Some people will say anything to attain power and money. There is no such thing as the Liberal Media, but the Corporate media is very real.
Here is chapter 2 right now. So far I'm calling this novel "Waking Up".
Justin Morrison sat near the front in a semi-amphitheater at the San Francisco University of Law
school. He wanted to be close to the professor but not right up in front. The class consisted of
54 up and coming lawyers who were able to afford the $52,000 per year costs via loans or
scholarships or by just writing a check because the family had money. Justin Archibald Morrison
came from a family with money. He did not have to negotiate loans with various reputable and
disreputable banks, or work miscellaneous jobs in order to make ends meet while attending the 3
years at the law school before he took the bar exam and passed smoothly into the legal profession,
enabling him to be hired by the numerous legal corporations that argued in front of courts of law or
processed legal paper work for clients who paid large sums of money. The dreams of a 6 or 7 figure
salary tended to attract applicants to law school. It was rarely ever about some fascination or
philosophical interest in the subject of law.
In Justin Archibald Morrison’s case, his enrollment into the SFU School of Law was more about
assuming his place in the heritage of the Morrison clan than it was about Justin’s interest in
either education or the law. His father had been a City supervisor in the 1980’s. His much older
brother was already a district court judge. His sister was married to a scion of the Getty family.
His next older brother was already a Captain in the city police force after 6 years of service. His
aunt was a top administrator for the San Francisco Library. His Two Uncles both worked at upper
levels in the City bureaucracy, one for the Municipal Transportation authority called MUNI, the
other for the zoning commission — the bureau that decided if establishments could exist in certain
locations, or whether building enhancements were up to code or permissible.
Justin’s grandfather had been a state Senator for 32 years from San Francisco. Stephen Evan Morrison
was born from Irish immigrants who arrived in the city in the 1890’s. His father was an accountant
and his mother was a housewife. After attaching himself to a financial firm that made money in the
growing real estate market of San Francisco and south of San Francisco in San Mateo county, Stephen
Morrison aggregated his own investments, wealth, and political connections within the close-knit
circles that constituted San Francisco’s economic and social elites of the post-earthquake years
after the armistice of the first world war. He was a pro-union advocate in the 1930’s that stood
against the rising fascist nationalist movement, and was regularly elected to represent the Mission
district in the state legislature at Sacramento from 1932 to 1964, when the Mission was still an
[Sacramento, a California city in the middle of the central valley, settled in 1839, was named
for its river, coming from the Spanish “sacramento”, in honor of the Holy Sacramento. Catholicism
has heavily influenced California throughout the state’s history.]
The Morrison family owned a large number of properties throughout the city and bay area, some of
which were commercial, some residential. The income from the rents, leases, and profit agreements on
these properties was in the upper hundreds of millions of dollars. The family used a variety of LLC
(limited liability corporations) and proprietary legal contracts to organize the income from these
properties and financial arrangements. A separate business firm was created merely to facilitate
the accounting management of all the income producing properties and financial arrangements.
Multiple lawyers were needed on an ongoing yearly basis to interpret the law as regards their
properties and capital investments.
For some people, having this long term historical connection with all the upper level places in the
regional society would create a sense of entitlement, a sense of deserving special privileges merely
because of luck of their heritage.
And so the first remark Justin made to his history professor when he was a Junior at an exclusive
private school in Pacific Heights near the Upper Fillmore — when he was confronted with his lack of
participation during class discussions — was …
“my daddy pays for this school’s existence and your salary”
After which the particular professor decided to backoff and reconsider his career options,
acknowledging that sometimes there were other factors influencing the system of education than
ethics, effort, and actual proficiency or knowledge. Money does sometimes pay for an education, but
not always in the way to be effectually desired. The grade was obtained but the information was not
processed or retained. Plenty of such private schools across the urban regions of the United States
catered heavily to the reality of the kids of wealthy parents who only cared about grades and
credentials, not substance. Being the responsible carrier for the cumulative knowledge of humanity
was never a consideration in the morbid thinking by those members of the aristocracy who only
concerned themselves with maintaining their status in the hierarchy of power and privilege.

Salt is not bad for you
Deer will travel miles just to lick a rock or a muddy pond or body of water with a high
concentration of salt. We need salt. Every cell in your body needs sodium as a necessary transport
mechanism for nutrients into and out of the cell membrane. You also need salt to produce stomach
acid. Your body will tell you if you need salt. If you crave salt, eat salt.
Here's what the actual research shows : the more you restrict your sodium intake, the more likely
you are to die.
Here's another video on the matter from a you tube channel called "What I've Learned". The fellow
who does the channel is an American transplant in Japan, and has a slew of very informed and
accurately sourced information.

Why Trump sucks
Perpetual hypocrisy is one thing. Castigation and hypocrisy is quite another matter.

This is where we are at in the country of the United States. A major motion picture that has
apparently been nominated for SIX Golden Globe awards called "Vice" is about Dick Cheney during the
Presidential administration of George Dubya Bush. It's now 2018. Ten years later and the zeitgeist
is willing to speak some truth about what happened.
Even while they white wash the more
scatological and despotic parts, it's still amazing how we are getting major motion cinema events
portraying a United States presidential administration as predatory, authoritarian assholes.
For what it's worth, the Grant and Reagan administrations still hold the record for criminal
convictions, with Nixon nearby. Herr Trump is in competition for first place. Willing to allow the
Russians help him take over the government seems to have upset all the patriotic americans who work
in the various institutions. Thank. God.

Robert Reich dismantles the delusion of Privitization
When the primary goal is to make profits rather than serve the public, privatization fails. Some
community goals cannot be quantified into costs and benefits. Is having a beach that is not
polluted good? Of Course, but how do you quantify that with dollars?
Answer : you can't. So predatory firms manipulate the public dialogue and make people think that
local and regional government inhibits economics, rather than (in historical reality) prevent the
vultures from fucking up everything that is good and cool and awesome -- just so a few privileged
people can make a few extra bucks.
Keeping it real y'all.

The Evolution of a Dialogue
This is what I wrote in response to Mr. Quentin Kopp, who attempted to run for mayor in the early
1980's against Dianne Feinstein as an attempt to have Republicans invade San Francisco politics.
Mr. Kopp likes to use disreputable sources to justify his bigoted mindset.
To the Editor:
I have a lot of respect for ex-mayor of San Franciscan Quentin Kopp. Except for one thing. Mr. Kopp
mentioned in the latest December issue of the Richmond Review that “California possesses more than 4
million illegal aliens and the National Economics Editorial estimates that pay $3.5 billion in
taxes, but cost California about $30 billion yearly.”
The same thing could be said of lower middle class natives. Currently most mid-western states get
more in taxes than they actually pay in return. So why is Mr. Kopp focusing on “illegal aliens”
ONLY? Most white middle class suburban Califonrians also pay less taxes than they actually gain in
costs, AND by the same rate as the excoriated “illegal aliens” of which you speak. So why are we
bringing up these specious statistics?
According to “mediabiasfactcheck.com“ — a reputable and renowned unbiased fact check organization —
the National Economics Editorial is considered an extremely biased and questionable resource
From the LINK: https://mediabiasfactcheck.com/national-economics-editorial/
National Economics Editorial (NEE) is a news site that purports to support Economic Nationalism.
While NEE does cover some economic issues it is, as the name implies, mainly an editorial site. The
opinions expressed in the stories cover current affairs with a pronounced right wing bias. NEE is,
on the whole, long on rhetoric and short on factual content and credible sourcing. Due to the overt
bias and lack of factual information, NEE is rated Questionable.
So why are we enabling this biased argument in the Richmond district community newspaper? Why are
we getting opinions that are external to the neighborhood of the Richmond district from an obviously
biased and bigoted source, purporting to be parochial and genuine to the interests of the community?
this is what the Editor of the Richmond Review (Paul Kozakiewicz) said in response
Hello. I don't understand your comparison of illegal aliens and middle class suburban white folks.
Illegal aliens are in the country illegally, have bypassed those hard-working immigrants that are
waiting in line to enter this country, and occasionally commit crimes against U.S. citizens, which
would not have occured were they not in the country illegally. Should our country have open borders
and allow anyone in the world in at any time? Are the costs to the American taxpayer in Kopp's
column wrong? Am I missing something here?
This was my reply to this editor
I am not hear to argue with you and I respect your opinion. But your last name does not appear to
be native american indian, which means you are an immigrant too.
I didn’t realize that the editor’s purpose is to criticize what was a letter in response to Mr.
Kopp’s usage of a biased source of information. How about using a more reputable source like the
Rand corporation or the center for immigration studies
I don’t know you personally, but I was born in San Francisco on 6th & Geary at the old French
Hospital, and I think my views were expressed respectfully. There are a lot of costs, some of which
are enabling corporate tax havens for large multinational corporations. You also make colorful
presumptions about committing crimes against US citizens not supported by actual studies of
immigrant populations which state that crime rates are actually less
You have a right to your own opinion, but not your own facts. Or if I am wrong, give me some
reputable source, and the National Economics Editorial is not a reputable source. Which I believe I
So don’t side step the truth of my allegations with banter and rhetorical questions that are more
opinion than fact sir.
Hopefully the editor of the Richmond Review will not exercise censorship. That would truly be
I have as of yet received no response. Mr. Kozakiewicz has said nothing one way or the other.
This is how y'all have to deal with these people by the way, which is why I am posting this
interaction. More than likely Mr. Paul K is pretty cool, but is ignorant in certain matters because
he is being preyed upon by ideologues who are feeding him false information. All you have to do is
point out where the reliable information is, say that you have respect, admit that you might be
wrong (which is 100% truth) and wait. That is the only honest dialogue you can have.

I am going to try to be more active on my blog. The literal meaning of "blog" is
In other words, saying something interesting, expressing something real, sharing experiences and
real world circumstances.
So today, I get a "refund" from CalStrs -- California State Teacher Retirement System -- because
apparently it took more money away then was legal. So I got $83. Wow. I would rather sock away $83 into
a fund that will enable me to retire at age 59 for $4200 a month before taxes. But some bumpkin
proletariat out there was manipulated into filing a law suit, under the delusional notion that
he/she was being screwed out of his/her money, and the state system lost under the semantic letter
of the law.
Meanwhile the goons are storming the legislature and city councils crying foul because having a
large pension insurance fund doesn't help the folks on Wall Street make money. Oh, but apparently
the Free Market applies to managing money, and large pension funds inhibit the creativity of Wall
Street. Really now. You mean how to creatively screw people out of money by slicing up millions of
mortgages into meaningless financial entities that got rated triple A because the ratings agencies
were paid very well to pretend and overlook the entire fraudulent scheme that crashed when AIG could
no longer insure against the fragility of the market.
Fuck these people. They only care about sinking their teeth into other peoples money and dish out this
free market nonsense as camouflage. A large pension fund is absolutely better for everyone in the
system. It is also the most
efficient way to manage money -- because the costs are minimized and the vagaries of the irrational
market are spread out and sunk into an aggregate fund. Individual accounts are subject to
individual fees, along with the whims and/or inexperience of those who manage such individual
accounts, and their is ample historical evidence that only the financiers benefit.
Yea of course, some people can gain more than others, but so many others lose, you have to wonder
why change a system that benefits everyone into something that might (at the very extreme best case
scenario) only benefit a few at the expense of the many?
Answer: because the donor class funds the corrupted politicians to screw the middle class and
they make sure their corrupted view is available in the media jungle, preying and trouncing upon the
weak and ignorant.
