REDEEM ACT 2014/ with Senators Paul & Booker: Tackling the SHACKLING that BIND's America, its YOUTH & its PRISON SYSTEM ... The "American LOCKDOWN" Edition ... (INCARCERATED AMERICAN PT.24) & (PUBLIC PATRIOT'S PT.34)





Part 24 of the "Incarcerated American" series is to look at the proposed legislation to do something about the overpopulated prison system here in America. It is also to credit and Thank Senators Rand Paul (KY), and Cory Booker (NJ) as "Public Patriots" for setting down and looking at this with a bipartisan American approach and taking action, since much of Washington is currently so corrupt, contaminated, dysfunctional and full of nickel and dime freak show's like the recent shenanigan's to sue and impeach the President over nonsense like ObamaCare, Middle Eastern or Far Eastern conflict's, pop- culture show's on Hillary Clinton, or similar distraction's. This is an importante domestic issue that need's to be focused on. Some video, links and read below, then I will add some to it after.

Thomas Hudson Pickering aka "Ranch Chimp", "Commie Tommie" & "Skool" (short for old school) to kid's locally


Right now in these trying economic times for most of us, we have an abundant amount of tax money being squandered to house/ incarcerate thousand's of American's, especially young American's for this privatized prison profiteering as you can see throughout this series in other posting's. While at the same time, it is taking serious/ large money away from our state and federal ran prison's and other institution's to house actual dangerous offender's ... and if they "fail" ... like all the other corporate privatization nonsense and scam's going on in America, they will even privatize more of those. I know how difficult this will be for the Senators to sell in Washington to the "establishment" politician's of the left and right, especially at an election time, the million's by corporate lobbyist's that is poured into these ventures and election's, etc (I point out here in Part 21 just how difficult this is to change, but you have to do it by changing law's, especially federal law too as Sen. Booker point's out, the law's "allow" them to milk basically ... and someone has to do it at some point), which is basically modern day racketeering, but it is a good start, so anything at this point is a plus when it comes to this, and this is more of a "positive" when you have politician's on board who are in agreement despite their political differences, instead of just an Attorney General or President trying to make a move "solo". It will also bring to light those hard question's and needed idea's that alwayz get swept under the rug, and instead inspire many more to push.

And what you see here although many still dont know is going on, is actually just the top of the chain in this, it is so deep full of all kind's of other contract's that are milking tax money, and even moreso the families of the inmates ... from those who sell black hair care and skin lotion product's to African American inmates as example, to selling the various junk food's at over inflated prices like candies and Ramen noodles, to coffee/ soup heating element's, portable fan's, phone card's, undergarment's, shoes, or all the other product's that are only allowed to be bought through their own commissary list's ... even when you send inmates money using these services like Ace Cash, they take cut's out of that and short inmates, and charge them for basic health, medical, hygienic need's/ item's that they also get tax money for and sell to families and inmates while pocketing the taxes and over- inflated commissary profit's both ... it's so deep. When there is such a system designed to incarcerate and willing to spend whatever it takes, there is much incentive to make a profit and for thing's to get out of control, especially when you dont watch where every dollar goes, and just loosely fund and fund. Since the last 30 or so year's on record (since the 1984 sentencing reform laws) show that this war on drugs for instance has done no good whatsoever when it comes to the drug issue, for just one example.

Folk's are alwayz wondering why we are so broke?, alwayz trying to dig out of a rut?, where is all the taxes going?, where much of the deficit comes in? ... well it's basically all these Wall St and corporate racketeer's just robbing America blind to be honest. And I am one who been talking about this for over 20 year's now ... this has been how long this has been going strong. I first noticed it year's back in Texas jail's and prison's, alot of them parole violator facilities, or them state type privately run jail's, etc. For instance, they were taking these small abandoned old closed jail's, institution's, hospital's, hotel's, etc, they would remodel them using  inmates to do much in plumbing, electrical, carpentry/ construction to landscaping, etc, with only a few contracted outsiders to oversee and supervise, much labour done for free as work detail by inmates who had trades in the outside free world ... then having state liscensed/ approved inspector's come in to inspect and then give the green light to open and start business ... while most of the money that was coming from state tax money was being pocketed by other's. And there is a whole list of other services that these inmates even do for outside private businesses and agencies for free where tax, company, and private money is also being funneled to these detention center's and contractor's that use free prison labour to work their grunt job's, then they mark up/ fudge the invoices/ bill's on cost's ... and basically you have a system of like a neo- type slavery. To where today in 2014 they have grown to the point where they get million's upon million's from state and federal funding and build these new places as fast as shopping mall's. Then you have local's in many of these rural area's where the facilities are set up, selling contraband since they outlawed smoking for example, so they smuggle smokes/ tobacco products, drug's or whatever, many times even through underpaid detention officer's who barely make a couple bucks an hour above federal minimum wage, contract worker's, etc.

So how do you keep these institution's full and busy? Well ... you do it by legislating many petty law's that many arent even aware of, 3 strikes your out law's that can take a petty offender for any non violent or even non criminal type offense and make it a privatized prison only state jail type felony or whatever, to where you can get at least a 6 month sentence for the person and make an easy $35K/ $40K grand to shift that inmate through it's system. Your almost guaranteed that a high percentage of them will return for future revenues (for stockholders ... another $35K/ $40K grand a pop), being that the restriction's they have when they get out on parole, to where something as simple as not officially changing your address through the proper proceedures within 24 hours or so, can land you back for a couple month's, or not being able to pay back fee's/ fines/ cost's that are also imposed on you. Focusing on the "poor" youth is a plus and big target as seen by these "investor's", and many of those are folk's of "colour" ... they're young and poor, they dont know yet that much about law and their rights, they get a petty drug possession case or whatever, get into court, get assigned a public defender who worx behind the scenes with the prosecution ... the lawyer/ defender comes back to the defendant/ kid after a closed door meeting with prosecution (this is so pre- planned and rigged, that many times the defense dont even meet with the prosecution, actually tell's the kid to wait in a court conference room, while the defense takes a 10/ 20 minute break to hang out, take a piss, or have a smoke outside), and tell's the kid that the case the state has is strong and if the kid tries to challenge it at a trial they "could" get some ridiculous maximum amount sentence, so it's a gamble ... which makes the kid worry and take any deal, then tell's the kid to take a cop- out plea deal and let the court/ judge give a sentence on the deal (even judges been busted supplying these institution's with kid's/ inmates), etc ... and when they're young and disorganized ... it's easy to keep them returning in some way to the system, so it's like a long- term investment ... and even when they're "off paper" (parole/ probation) have them locked in for life in their database for "prior offenses" to use as precedent for future conviction(s), etc.

In Texas for example (and my guess in some other states) when it comes to doing time and defense ... the more money you spend, the less likely you are to do time on any non- violent offense. I was talking to a young lady recently for examples here (white female), she went and done several month's in a state jail for under $20 worth of cocaine possession, slapped with a couple thousand in fines, fee's, etc (she had a court appointed attorney, she couldnt afford defense) after getting out, she now is trying to get her life back together, she is engaged to be married in several month's, she has a job and worx hard, and pretty much other than that is a straight up citizen. Another guy (white male) I talked to about a year ago had 6 bust's/ arrest's for drunk driving, he is an independent contractor in HVAC (heat- ventilation- a/c) who makes good money ... he hired a good defense lawyer for instance, he was slapped with well over $15,000 in defense fee's and court cost's/ fines/ probation fee's, etc, but he never done a day of any time incarcerated on any of his conviction's, and this guy was an alcoholic pretty much who alwayz drove drunk putting himself and other's in danger. These are just 2 cases, to show the reality here in Texas ... I could recall many other cases that are similar.

Understand that these folk's that create these law's and institution's dont give a rat's ass about cleaning up crime, making your middle class or poverty class neighbourhood safer, trying to reform or rehabilitate anyone, especially the youth, or frankly give a shit about the nation/ America, the youth, or the poor who get abused by this system ... their bottom line is one thing only, and that is to make a buck/ profit ONLY ... nothing else matter's. It's time to work on shutting them down and saving our nation a bundle in doing so ... and would even be nicer to incarcerate some of those racketeer's from Wall St, Washington and the private sector's in some of those institution's that they had built and used for so long for their racketeering ventures ... and make bet's on them (like at the fight's/ boxing or horse races) on how well they can survive in the real world ... the world that they throw some of these young kid's into that doesnt rehabilitate the kid or do anything of any value, a system more negative and abusive than anything positive for a kid in many cases. It is time again (like during the Great Depression or the late 1960's, when thing's also got out of control in the last century) to reform, revitalize and reinforce our democracy (or what is actually a "republic" design) and system, and the people of this nation to lobby for a change, and importantely in our communities, not just Washington. To really get where we need to be, we need to put our money not offshore as much in war's/ occupation's, building more prison's or whatever, but invest in our American public institution's, school's, and community rehabilitation programmes, drug issue intervention and treatment center's and education of such ... not giving more billion's and billion's in corporate welfare so they can squander, rip- off and take this nation further into the ground than they already have ... especially locking down our children.


THAT is the Reality ... Word Out ....

LGBT Rights 2014/ HOLMES- PHARISS- DE LEON & DIMETMAN: Texas' UNofficial LAW- "FIRM" on Justice & Equality ... The "Judiciary Roleplay" Edition ... (PUBLIC PATRIOT'S PT.33)

http://therivardreport.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/same-sex-marriage-courthouse_randy-bear.jpg

(left to right) Victor Holmes, Mark Phariss, Cleopatra De Leon, & Nicole Dimetman


Part 33 of the "Public Patriots" series will be to highlight the case back in February over ruling the ban on same sex marriage in Texas unconstitutional by Judge Garcia in San Antonio, which was a sort of 21st century battle at the Alamo calling this time for judiciary roleplay to get involved. But this posting mainly is to honour Victor Holmes, Mark Phariss, Cleopatra De Leon & Nicole Dimetman as public patriot's for taking this to the challenge and all those who stood behind them ... and congratulation's on this first round too, and for standing up for the rights of Texans!

And I want to add, that I dont have some fetish for writing about marriage or wedding's at all, to me they are boring, whether it's gay or straight marriages or the joining of cat's or dog's in matrimony, I could give a shit less one way or the other, nor has it ever bothered me or offended me in any way what other couples/ peoples sexual practices are ... it simply dont matter to me. My wife and I been together for over 30 year's (even before we were officially married), we would be together whether anyone approved it or not, plain and simple. This posting is about basic rights for ALL citizen's, "marriage" has alot of legal odd's & end's that come with it, as well as financial advantages (and sometimes disadvantages), custody and property rights, taxation status, etc, etc ... all falling under the umbrella in our nation of state recognized "marriage" for it's citizen's ... again ... this is simply a matter of FULL rights and EQUAL rights, it hasnt a thing to do with our opinion's as far as same sex marriage and what we may feel about it.

But it's really sad that still another freedom and right has to be fought for this late in the 21st century, and still is a national battle, it's almost endless, when you get my age and hear constantly for decade after decade that were ALL free, liberated, equal, and understanding ... yet decade after decade this endless battle over and over and over and over because of politics, institutionalized religion's, cultures, or whatever of still having to battle just for basic rights ... it's actually sickening, boring and hypocritical. And basically many politician's who get paid decent salaries BY US, claim they represent the people and their interest's, yet pussy- foot and dance around these issues for political reason's ... and this posting is nearly 5 years back , this is the best we got by now in 2014 from our political representation? But still it's the people that have to fight them (politicians) ... what a bloody contradiction, eh?

Mark Phariss and Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott (Greg is running for Governor as well, and he sure as Hell wont get my vote) have even been friend's since college kid's, Mark ran to his side when Greg got injured and paralyzed, which is a true friend, yet Greg wants to challenge his friend in court on equal rights for his friend and fellow Texan's? ... I dont think I will ever understand that way of thinking ... and Thank goodness I cant. Ms. De Leon and Mr. Holmes are both Air Force veteran's as well ... these are fellow Texan's who came up to serve and defend our nation and state ... and these folk's have to actually fight here at home for the right to be equal? ... our veteran's? ... that's not only a state of Texas disgrace, but a national disgrace! It's just a matter of time and this will be all over, and need's to be, and get on with marriage equality as a basic right ... more below.


Word Out ....

***** TWC NEWS/ AUSTIN: (added 29 july 2014) LGBT Families Try to Deliver Petition Seeking Marriage Equality ... the children of gay/ lesbian couples in Texas yesterday tried hand- delivering thousand's of petition's they carried in kid's hand pulled wagon's to the Attorney General's office ... they were declined and not accepted to be delivered, the office said they dont accept anything that is "hand- delivered". Now ... I see that as a lie, although they can say due to terror threat's and increased security measures, they may enforce that rule. I see it as a "snowjob" or "half truth", because all day long these and other offices get hand delivered packages/ envelopes through private/ contracted courier's, which is common ... I mean ... they know what these children were delivering, they got the head's up, even mainstream media's were there covering it.

DART to DALLAS/ FORT WORTH INTERNATIONAL ... DFW's latest TRAIN CHAIN Link ... (TASTE OF TEXAS PT.25)





Image result for dart station dallas/ fort worth international airport



Part 25 of this series is some local DFW news that you may not hear much about around town, since so much talk is about more freewayz, tollwayz, and traffic as far as transportation issues ... but this is more importante than these tollway expansion's in my opinion and a BIG plus! This will take a look at the direct DART rail service that will open next month (august) to the DFW Airport Terminal A. This has been fought against tooth and claw for year's here by some, from tax payer's to mostly taxi and shuttle lobbies trying to suppress especially to DFW and Love Field airports, rail expansion's to them (and you can see why here), even for year's American Airlines at DFW trying to buck Love Field from expanding their airline carrier's and flight destination services, which has all finally came to an end ... so it's kind of been a long battle locally over "$$$$". Also I want to add that the rail expansion overall across the Metroplex over the last decade has been about the fastest and largest that I ever seen. And Thanx to taxpayer's, but also Thanx to the Federal Government, because we have had also a certain cult here in Texas (you know who they are) that has whined constantly over the Federal Government, and every bloody tax proposed down to the nickel ... the Federal Government has poured alot of dollar's into this ... okay(?) Also from what I read by 2018 Fort Worth will be running a new rail line into Terminal B from downtown Fort Worth, you can connect from any of the rail system's/ lines in the Metroplex now though, whether it's any of the DART lines, TRE/ DFW commuter line or the Denton A- Train's, etc. Also when you get into the airport you have the airport's own rail system called Sky Link to connect all terminal's/ gates ... so it's a complete train chain link.

Cities up north such as New York, Chicago, Philly, etc, as well as your cities in Europe for example have been a step up on us in this area for year's, they had long established rail system's and done well on structuring their cities around it, while town's in this part of our nation such as Houston, LA, Phoenix or Dallas were based on freeway system's far too much, LA for instance has been also really picking up on rail expansion well, which was long past due, because of traffic and smog ... and any kind of rail system's and combination's of types is what we all need more of, including this new high speed rail for Texas ... introducing rail to freeway cities has been a challenge. This will have a very positive impact as well on business that some are not looking at yet, they say they will be thrilled expecting airline passenger 1200 rider's a day? ... I would bet it will attract alot more once word of mouth get's out ... and also DFW Airport has 60,000 employee's ... how many of them will decide to use it, eh? ... how much will it reduce some of the rush hour traffic into and out of this airport? You can now go directly into downtown's Dallas Convention Center from your terminal for $2.50 or Uptown to Info Mart, Market Hall, World Trade Center, etc ... compared to a $45/ $50 cab fare or fighting freeway traffic, or having to go to the southport entrance of the airport via bus shuttle to catch a train like before ... my daughter for instance is a frequent flyer because of her job, so for folks like her it's a good deal too. From what I read, train's from downtown Dallas to the airport will start at 3:50am, and the last train at night from the airport to downtown will leave DFW at 1:12am, the trial run in the below video was slowed down for the first run, it will reach speed's of 60/ 65 mph when in operation. More below ... Word Out ....

TOLL ROADS AMERICA 2014: Public/ Private Partnership of Government Sanctioned Monopolies ... The "RIDING the Hershey Highway" Edition ... (How To Privatize America PT.10) & (CORPORATCOMMUNAZICA PT.8)

http://i1.ytimg.com/vi/x7O_AqhDB04/0.jpg



This posting to also be for both series of this journal "Corporatcommunazica" & "How To Privatize America" ... will take a look at another domestic American issue that I havent even paid that much atencion to, but it has been brought up to me time and again, over and over from folk's ... many who have various complaint's about it, so I decided to look into it a bit and do a posting on it since I havent yet. And just dont think that this is a local issue across Texas ... this is coast to coast, Edward and I were discussing this the other day who moved here from Brooklyn/ NYC (and a shout out to Ed if you catch this post ... Coney Island and Greek Pizza ROX! {: ) and was telling me of the enormous fee's/ toll's now in New York/ New Jersey just going to work for folk's, I had other neighbour's who moved here from Los Angeles recently telling me the the toll's now in LA & Orange Counties are insane, folk's I talked to from Cleveland ... same deal in Ohio, and been now reading about this all over the nation.

But first while digging up stuff for this posting, some link's and video below ... and I thought that Terri Hall of TURF here in Texas summed this up straight and clear without any of the side dishes of bullshit, who also partly inspired the title of this posting, and the part about the Hershey Highway (no NOT in Pennsylvania) inspired, because that is what I see this as ... basically getting another shaft up our asses riding us via our legislator's, which I will point out after.

Thomas Hudson Pickering aka "Ranch Chimp" & "Commie Tommie" (the car is a 2013 ZL1 Chevy Camaro convertible, with a LSA 6.2 liter supercharged V8 and 580 horsepower engine ... it dont fuck around (half- step), and neither do I : )


I can understand that government is just trying to do something for our infrastructure need's and the whole public private partnership gig getting money from business to create business, open market, etc, etc ... it all sound's great on paper. But understand that as you can see throughout this journal, many of these same investment entities are simply into profiteering ONLY, they could care less about helping this country do a damn thing, or frankly give a shit about this country except for what they can milk it for ... some of these same neo- pro free market folk's are the same folk's that have their hand out trying to milk every government tax dollar they can get their hand's on, and are more like fraudulent welfare recipient's than anything else, trying to take control basically at the same time of every public service this nation has. Some of these same mega entities are the same who milked this country to austerity, and affiliates that have us in these endless war's/ occupation's that drink's up all our surplus if we have any, just continuing to rob this nation and other's.

Also understand that when you give some of these entities full power, they may take legislation a step further and can push to possibly even shut down your vehicle from operation using the technologies that todayz vehicles are being built and equipped with, over past due payment's or whatever ... who know's what's next? Perhap's naming these new toll road's after themselves? Can you imagine driving down Bank of America Highway, Exxon/ Mobil Highway ... Pizza Hut Highway? And dont think for a minute they wouldnt try to name these with some tasteless, and tacky bland title ... look at any of the major stadium's across the nation, or just in the Dallas area ... they actually named our soccer stadium in Frisco for the FC Dallas team ... "Pizza Hut Stadium" (and that is tasteless, tacky and uncreative as Hell!) and now it's Toyota Stadium, Texas Rangers (MLB) Ballpark stadium in Arlington is now Globe Life Stadium (insurance), Cowboys (NFL) Stadium next door to that is AT&T Stadium, Dallas Mavericks (NBA) arena downtown is now American Airlines Center, SMU Mustangs (college football) Stadium in central Dallas is at least a lil less obvious and tacky at least naming it Gerald J. Ford Stadium, not after the former President Ford, but this guy is the former CEO of a major California bank that sold to Citigroup, now chairman of the board for a banking insurance holding company and on the board of director's for the world's largest extractor of gold and copper ... now Cotton Bowl Stadium (for college football bowls) in Fair Park/ Expo Park is looking to sell naming rights as well ... same thing in other metro area's around the nation.





But when you have these type of so called "partnership's" ... YOU MUST have some regulation's, oversight, accountability, etc ... taxpayer's have to account for every damn dollar we have and spend, and do a Hell of alot better at managing our money than Wall Street or Washington combined ... and that is where once again our legislator's/ representation are failing ... just like giving billion's to other entities from mega investment folk's to energy/ petro corporation's etc ... yet NEVER asking for a contract, almost with no term's and condition's, and no transparency, etc, and when one of these folk's fail, either get bailed out, re- financed, file bankruptcy and take everything off shore, etc ... where is ANY oversight? That is NOT free- market, competitive business, good business that pays off, or a damn thing balanced business wise about it, and just creates monopolies that cant even stand on their own 2 feet without government money, yet brag constantly they they are all this and that and removing government from everything. Can you imagine what shape we would be in letting these folk's do as usual ... and have no oversight of a damn thing? ... Hell ... many would dig their own graves, and take us all in the hole with them ... like us having a relationship with a dopefiend ... which is not a healthy "partnership".

Some of this is absolutely mindblowing, almost enough to make you bust out laughing if it werent such serious issues involving economic's or whatever, I have never witnessed such incompetence in my life, especially out of some of our political representation, who have decades in some cases of experience in business, economic's, law, etc, etc ... where in Hell are your bargaining/ negotiating, salesmanship, marketing skill's? You sure as Hell sell some crafty campaign packages to the voter's during election's ... is this all ya'll can do when dealing with some of these prospective investor's? These are everyones tax dollar's ... we need to do better than this on how we spend, period, regardless of which of these two political sides you belong to. Again ... I am not a hard ass who is anti- business at all ... but Geeeezzz ... when your making a DEAL ... at least "sell me something" ... I want your business/ investment's, I want to give ya'll a tax break ... WHAT DO WE/ US get in the package/ deal? ... I'm just talking basic straight business, nothing complex. I mean ... these kind's of haggling and bargaining is insane in ANY business ... SELL ME/ US!, show something ... not word's that I/ we can get from a used car salesman or someone flipping houses/ real estate, this isnt some nickel & dimer street corner crap ... these are BIG deal's and contract's ... we need something on paper/ in writing, a contract like ANY business does ... conducting business this way is NOT business! And we need some control, regulation and input from taxpayer's, since it IS tax dollars being shelled out ... this shit has just went hogwild and now their even tolling the damn interstates in rural area's!

As far as the toll's that I hear complaining about from folks time and again, from the scam's to overcharging, etc ... try to avoid tolls ... as a matter a fact if this continues to grow rapidly without no change ... I would hope that a majority of American's will flat out boycott in some new movement of sort. Dont get me wrong, I have used them a few times, most times I avoid them ... an instance a few weeks back or so when I had to run my daughter to drop her during morning rush at DFW airport ... I had to get to McKinney in less than an hour, was exiting the terminal's at the north exit unto LBJ Frwy and didnt want to deal with that LBJ and North Central Expwy morning traffic with all that construction ... I used the Rayburn Tollway which was pretty smooth and good time ... and all those overhead camera's that read your plates/ tag's, make it so you can breeze through easily at about 85 mph if you choose (although the posted speed limit is 75 mph), without having to slow down which was nice, getting me up there in a half hour or so. But yeah ... they dont miss a beat and had my bill in the mail in a couple dayz. For those who dont pay the toll's and ignore them, because there are so many thousand's of people doing such, and figuring that they wont issue a warrant or whatever or track you down ... well ... when you try to renew your liscense, registration or whatever ... they will put a hold on it and not renew ... because it's all connected in with the TxDOT and TxDPS computer's, if you got too many unpaid's like some who owe thousand's ... they are now having DPS unit's on the tollwayz, that scan passing plates, and they will pull you over and nab you if their computer in the unit red flag's you.


Other than that ... Word Out ....

MARLENE PINNOCK: To "Serve & Protect" ALL Those in Danger ... Except THOSE IN DANGER ... The "Ranger Danger" Edition ... (POLICE BRUTALITY PT.16)

Marlene Pinnock


Part 16 of the "Police Brutality" series will be to take a look and review at the beating of a woman Ms. Marlene Pinnock in West LA off the Santa Monica Frwy @ S. LaBrea Ave. the other day. These instances are a constant, especially in the LA area going back for year's, but it is also what you see more of over and over again in all your major urban area's across America ... and I ONLY been covering widely publicized cases in this series ... Hell ... if I were to highlight so many other's, I would have to devote this entire journal to these cases there are so many, and would still be behind ... that's how much of this goes on. And there can never be enough media/ blogging about this in our nation as far as I'm concerned. First some video and newsread below, then I wanted to add some to it after.

Thomas Hudson Pickering aka "Ranch Chimp", "Commie Tommie" & "Skool" (short for old school) to kid's locally


First of all in all fairness based on what Democracy is supposed to be about, and taking the proper legal investigative proceedures ... I will give CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow the benefit of doubt and hoping that they in their department make the only acceptable decision once they have all their evidence and investigative work completed. But too many times you see it prolonged, haggled, swept off to the side, twisted into something else etc, etc ... as you can see though, this is a clear straight case of excessive force and brutality on this woman ... and Thanx also to Mr. David Diaz for catching this all on film/ camera.

Once again, the thing that get's me about these cases across our nation, is when these officer's are being investigated by their IAD's (Internal Affairs Division) and affiliate agencies, they are alwayz given "paid" administrative leave and shifted to desk/ inner office detail's or whatever. And NO ... this is not necessary at all ... you can immediately reprimand the officer in at least some way, the firing of an officer can be a lil more difficult/ complicated (and a commissioner/ chief has the legal power to do that prior to any investigation at his/ her own discretion) and if the officer is CLEARED, you then can reinstate the duties and make up back pay and/ or any damage to the officer ... THAT IS FAIR, and can save the court's and taxpayer's money in further lawsuit's. In this case as well ... although they had no problemo getting the release of the name of Ms. Pinnock (and now even digging up her record's as if she is criminal) despite her non- cooperating to voluntarily give her name, but it takes too long to release the name of the officer ... why is that? In this case I'll just name the officer "Ranger Danger" since America has several of these ... those who are sworn to protect and serve all ... yet are never there enough to actually protect those who are really in DANGER in our communities ... while at the same time being a danger (officer) themselves to other's.

This case is about this instance ONLY, NOT her past record or history, and they cant say they knew her past history to assumed such, since they never even knew her name to run a make on her to begin with, or had her in the squad/ patrol unit to run her print's on their pad. She had no weapon's displayed, she was walking between car's but not attempted to assault anyone or vandalize anyones vehicle, she did not make any motion to harm the officer, she only tried to protect her head from the blow's he was dishing out in a radical un- professional manner. The insane part of this, is that these officer's are trained to where he could bring down this woman in a split second and even gently at that from what their taught/ trained (I could have myself and I'm not even an officer and older than him or her), while able to restrain the subject so easily, not even using a taser or mace or anything but a couple simple moves. When he was beating her in the head he also had her secured with his body and weight easily, and wearing leather gloves instead of bare knuckle, so he even had all the protection for his fist's at that. There is nothing to justify or to twist this into but what it clearly is.

And it is more likely to get targeted because of your race and class, but the race end has been going on for decades ... I mean ... I been seeing this shit since the 1960's ... and it has only gotten worse in America and far more frequent and acceptable ... and it should never be acceptable ... this is America ... this IS NOT what this country is about, nor need's to be. And who can argue when people throw "race" into it? A couple young men I was talking to the other day (both black men) about this and related ... one in his early 20's described our society and such as people that see black people and especially lower income as "subhuman" ... the other guy in his late 20's told me that so many people just hate black people and would like to just kill them if they could get away with it. Both of these young men had job's (lower wage job's), pay taxes, dont harm anyone, or have a history of trouble with the law or whatever. And they werent angry when they told me this, they were more disappointed and at ease as if it is common ... why do these young men feel this way and are so sincere about it? You should never accept this!

I was on the train/ rail the other day coming home from work in the early afternoon (1:30pm or so), the car I was on had me and only about 7/8 other passenger's ... a Dallas Transit fare enforcement officer boarded the train at the Burbank Station (Greenline to Carrollton), he walked past me and went to the other's who were all black passenger's in my car, and asked to show their ticket's (confirm they paid fare), he never asked me (he was also a white officer) ... he walked to the next car to check ticket's, I actually got up and followed him to the next car and said ... (loudly) "Excuse me officer ... you never checked my ticket ... " ... he just said Thank You and didnt even bother to read it ... what should I think? Are African American's not disproportionately targeted/ profiled because of race? With these instances and similar with the brutality, illegal searches, and all other ... how can you argue their not?

PRESIDENT OBAMA/ AUSTIN 2014: Lame Duck President? ... NO ... PATRIOT (P)Resident ... The "How the BUCK Stopped the DUCK" Edition (PUBLIC PATRIOT'S PT.32) & (PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA, JR PT.5)





This posting will also serve these 2 series for this journal, which will highlight the President's speech on the economy and the condition while in Austin the other day ... he also made a stop to meet with city and county leader's of Dallas the same day and spoke concerning the immigration issue, (Dallas offered/ agreed to take in numbers of them in the thousand's, 2000 of those immigrant's will be children, many are being processed now, and the Federal Government is deciding now who will do the contracting for it here). I am also glad that he didnt fall for the push for him to go down to the Mexico/ Texas border, where he was getting pressured from both political sides to do (especially Texas Gov Rick Perry) ... there was no need to, and it wouldnt have done a damn bit of good Sir ... your meeting with those who will possibly house and support thousand's of these immigrant's here in Dallas County was far more importante than taking pictures in 100 degree heat on the bank's of the Rio Grande River. In my opinion as well ... Gov. Rick Perry just carried a redneck attitude toward's the President while here and complaining even after they met. And all this barbeque and beer talk about Texas through the Governor's office constantly talking about Washington's spending or of this administration and about secession talk, Texas independence, etc, etc ... is also a bunch of crap when Washington is dishing out money ... Gov. Rick Perry is first in line holding his hand out and Texas get's enormous funding on various thing's from Washington/ Federal Gvmnt ... but I'll leave that there.

I wanted to highlight this speech he gave here at the Paramount Theatre in Austin the other day, because it was so straight to the point and because all you hear these dayz is about the lower rating's in the poll's of the President, a do nothing, lame duck President, etc ... this man is doing his job and frankly doing a damn good job at that. I am also happy to see that he been using his executive power's and pen a bit more, which I suggested long back he should do myself, due to having to work with such an unproductive, dysfunctional,  and non- cooperating work crew, in any of the private sector's (and they in the GOP should know this very well), they would be fired in a heartbeat and looking for a new bloody job! ... and what does the President get for doing such and his job? ... well now they want to sue and impeach him (which is solid nonsense) and frankly in my opinion the President shouldnt even respond and play in such stupid nonsense (which is about as stupid as the birth certificate garbage) ... better yet ... if they want to ask you any related thing, discuss such with you, or any damn thing on this nonsense Sir ... instead of taking them to dinner or to play golf anymore (and John Boehner as a man is a likable guy too I will add ... I just dont agree with this last stunt he pulled) ... tell them jerk's to go through the proper legislative and legal proceeding's ... other than that ... shut the Hell up, or deal with your attorney. Wanna SUE? ... SO WHAT ... go ahead! (I would figure that someone like Speaker Boehner would be AGAINST "frivolous" type lawsuit's, eh? ... at least that is what they preach). This Congress in particular has spent their entire time not working for America's interest's, but working night and day to try to nitpick and buck this President like some sort of cult fetish.

Sure you can label him as a lame duck or whatever, and blame everything in the world on him ... but considering the mess that this country was in when he took over office on day one ... it is in better shape than would be under anyone. The only thing that stop's this duck (President) from getting through any deal's ... is the $$ BUCK's $$ that have been contaminating Washington, they even ripped apart his blueprint for a public option in Health Care and tried only to milk the Hell out of that ... the same people who claim that they DONT WANT government money, big government or anything else ... like Rick Perry of Texas ... are those first in line with their hand out to take and milk all they can get. He may not have done everything everyone would like ... I dont agree with everything that he does or sayz as I pointed out throughout this journal, but many of the issues and his decision's I do ... and he has been the most bipartisan President I seen in my life (and I was born back when Dwight Eisenhower was President) ... I myself am bipartisan. He has done well on rights for all, well on defense, done good on business (more than many conservatives at that), done well by our veteran's especially and the First Lady as well with their families ... and he gave an honest dayz work for his pay ... and has had one Hell of a load to deal with. And he dont have to prove his residency with me or show his birth certificate or wear a flagpin on his jacket lapel ... he's a resident and good President and in my opinion a public patriot. He sure as Hell is doing his job ... that's more than I can say for many other's ... more from the President below ... Word Out ....

The President Speaks on the Economy ... Thanx to THE WHITE HOUSE




*****************************************************************************

***** POST NOTE: My point here is that the man is doing his JOB, the man has been doing his best to try to work with all sides. When thing's get rough economically or otherwise, people will direct their frustration  as a result of the main leader ... if thing's are well ... no one cares and they like the leader ... when shit hit's home, folk's care ONLY. Most of the troubles we have started way before he became President, and took the action's of both these polarizing sides to establish. I hear all the arguement's that the President does too much secret deal's, he is creating a police state, etc. There are alot of other factor's that help create the condition, not one person. And I dont even agree with some of the trade negotiation's, or imposing tougher restriction's on our privacy etc ... but it's not this one person creating this, he is moving on the hand he has been dealt and on the advice of many. And personally speaking, I would have used my veto/ executive power pen a Hell of alot more than he had ... they wouldnt want to sue one like me, they would want one like me hung, heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {: ) I dont buy the talk that he is just the evil character that he been being painted as, I believe he loves this country and trying to make the ride for ALL as smooth as he can through this transition which is global ... cause we have some big challenges ahead of us, whoever is in this office, bank on it.

And I dont understand Speaker Boehner's move on this lawsuit business or who inspired or supported him to pull this stunt (maybe they took a trip down memory lane and had the red- ass, from when Atty Gen. Holder filed a lawsuit against their $$ buddies $$ at British Petro), I seen Boehner and Obama as possibly a couple guyz that can be buddies and iron out some of their political differences, John seem's like a likable guy too I mean. I can only imagine in a position like being President of how lonely it must be, and thought it was healthy for Obama and Boehner to play some golf together or have some guyz to play basketball with on the court, etc (you need some leisure in such a stressful environment) ... you are surrounded 24/ 7 by stuffed suit's, ton's of paper's to review and security, having some folk's to hang- out with, socialize with and down time is importante and healthy. It just seem's like such a cramped environment, almost physically restrictive, like being in jail or some shit ... (even in jail I/ you want to shoot a few hoops on the basketball court and socialize) , or being stuck in some fluorescent prison type office/ cubicle type job, but like for 2 and a half shift's back to back. Congress sure as Hell makes and takes plenty of time off, Hell ... everytime they get the red- ass (angry), they just walk out and take off a couple week's or whatever ... and threaten to close down the government, public amenities and other thing's American's need and pay for themselves!

IMMIGRATION Order @ The Border 2014: "... Look at ALL these Little KIDZ ... Takin Care of Serious BIZ ..." The "SHOW Your LOVE" Edition ... (HISPANIC/ LATINO STIMULUS PACKAGE PT.3)

http://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/253b8c694ac21f7b942d5d86b70add45e406ba61/c=400-0-2900-1879&r=x404&c=534x401/local/-/media/USATODAY/USATODAY/2014/06/18/1403126178001-AP-Immigration-Overload-002.jpg



Part 3 of the "Hispanic/ Latino Stimulus Package" series will take a look at what is being called a "crisis" or even an "invasion" of immigrant's from mostly these central American countries ... but not just here in the Southwest from Texas to California, but the nation ... and the politician's of course are scrambling to do and say the "correct" thing ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {: ) ... which makes me find this whole issue as politically entertaining and absolutely hilarious, which I will explain in my part after the newsread and video below. Big Thanx as well to CNN ... cause when they cover any issue, they stay on that shit for sometimes week's at a time and are all over it like a cheap suit on sunday, with every angle, conspiracy, theory ... you name it! {: ) Also this posting's title was inspired by the lyrics of the classic 1978 of Van Halen called "I'm The One" ... a song that I loved covering myself back in the day on vocal's!


 *****************************************************************************

***** NOTE: (wednesday 09 July 2014) There has been news talk that human smuggling cartel's have some kind of "game/ hustle" rigged up spreading rumor down there that U.S. and this administration are giving "amnesty" to those that can make it up here (telling folk's that legislation that never happenened went through). I have been able to also clarify and confirm that this week first hand from 2 sources of folk's that are here from Honduras and El Salvador, I had no idea this scam was going on (it is big money for some, so it makes sense), but my sources are very reliable on that info, they as well made that journey.

To try to explain how this worx, I will tell it as explained to me, okay? This is from my Honduran source, and I wont mention his name here because he is a friend. Basically the total cost to get a kid or famila member here is about $6000 in American dollars, in Honduras you have to pay about $3000 up front to the cartel (in many instances the money may come from American familia already here), when you get out and into Mexico before you get passage through the U.S/ Mexico border region, they (cartel/ coyotes) have to get another couple thousand (or else you dont get access through Mexico), for additional paper work of some kind to carry on your person to say if caught that you have legal immigrant status of some kind, you pay an additional $1000 basically for that (not mandatory, but added confidence in doing so). Alot of the money transferring is done through places like Western Union and usually at them check cashing/ payday loan joints and convenient stores here in U.S. .

My friend's older brother (who is early 50's in age) was recently killed in Honduras because he didnt pay some small back money that he owed on some deal, he had a small convenient store in Honduras too. They came to his home, his brother was scared and suspected it wasnt going to go well, and tried to grab a gun he had in his home, they shot him 5x times in the head at point blank range, his 2 son's who were early 20's and one late teen's were also shot in the incident who were at home, the older one in the stomach and chest and died right there, the younger one was shot trying to run in the back and his spine got hit, he's alive but cant walk. His teenage daughter and wife are up here in Dallas.

Thomas Hudson Pickering aka "Ranch Chimp", "Commie Tommie" & "Skool" (short for old school) to kid's locally


First of all, I want to congratulate these kidz who actually made it here through this rough experience and being so determined at such a young age to get away from some of the shit that goes down in their part of America, but they also need to understand and will in time, that they will also have challenges here, but this strength and determination at such a young age will even hone your survival skills better, trust me (much of my own strength's and weaknesses that I learned over the year's comes from my childhood, which I am so glad that I have experienced). These are some strong kidz ... which I look at as the "iron youth" ... and some of which will become the true "elite" of our future.

The great thing about this politically is that it makes many politician's either have to make up more lies to cover their past lies, or to just come right out and say what really is their view, opinion, stand/ position ... they are under pressure because of these mid- term election's and the big one coming up in 2016, it also awaken's us as American citizen's exposing more of the hypocrisy that we promote in our nation ... this is all over every political show across the nation right now, so Thanx as well to these kids on that end. Many of these same politician's would otherwise be down in town's like Laredo, Brownsville, McAllen, Del Rio Texas all the way up to San Antonio/ San Marcos and beyond eating taco's and hugging immigrant latino children during their campaign's for hundred's of photo shoot's trying to get the votes of these immigrant's families and friend's. Already all over Texas and the nation many politician's are blaming each other for this (most blame Obama, as usual) ... and just having to listen to some of their whining so early in the fucken morning on the news is irritating ... heh, heh, heh, heh, heh {: )

Many politician's especially here in Texas even, and those who pump 10's of thousand's of dollars into their campaign's, hire some of these low wage worker's to do everything from gardening/ landscaping to being nannies of their kids, use the contracting services of such because of how great of a bargain they can get, etc. My daughter's fiancee/ boyfriend came here from Mexico as one of these immigrant kidz ... he graduated from the University of North Texas @ Denton and today represent's a major U.S. based company in marketing relation's in Latin American countries ... his mom BTW, was a maid for the Cheney's (former Vice President) here in an exclusive upscale Dallas neighbourhood ... the same Dick Cheney that told us that he "lived" in Wyoming when he ran as Vice Presidential candidate with Presidential/ GOP candidate G.W. Bush.

You would figure that there may be a different reaction from some of our leadership, especially in this so called "age of globalization" (corporate/ banking globalization is more like it) ... "being a big free happy familia" ... with all the so called "borderless free trade" (major corporation's and investment banking ONLY ... I mean like ... you or I cant legally trade or even invest our own damn money without their approval or the way they do, eh?) etc, etc ... with our love for children, our wanting to free people who seek political asylum and refuge, etc ... I mean ... these ARE American's, they are our neighbour's, they are culturally the same as us even, they struggle and hope for the same thing's we do and true democracy, just like you want them to ... do we not inspire this? With our swollen head's and bellies of how worldly and liberated and loving we are, eh? ... should we NOT live up to what we been preaching all these year's?, or like everything else, speak out of both sides of our mouth's on this one too, when these children's lives are on the line? So here we are with many who seek what we told them they should all along, and told them we are there to help as usual in times of need ... and have them in detention facilities set up like many of the privatized prison's in America that are in the prisoner's for profit's business ... knowing that all these top hypocrites may be some of the same people who would later exploit these children in some way.

NO! ... if ya'll are going to tighten the border as ya'll claim for year's and decades to have done ... just bloody fucken do it, dont beat around the bush over and over and ignore it ... Hell ... ya'll dont ignore us as far as tightening up everything on us as citizen's, ya'll have us all under lock and key and watched 24/ 7, searched/ monitored (many times illegally at that), fined/ penalized, etc, etc. In the meantime, these kids who made that long rough journey here ... I would financially support and even personally set up account's for some as an investment for their education and the future of our own nation. Why? ... why not ... I mean ... we spend billion's on fossil fuel/ oil/ energy subsidies (corporate welfare), we fund the same terrorist's that threaten us directly or indirectly with more million's to billion's in middle eastern/ African/ Asian countries and their dictator's, with slush fund's out the ass ... we spend billion's invading and occupying nation's over there so we can get more oil, coal, lithium, copper, etc, and support financially and politically some of the same dictator's in those countries who are so culturally different, that they wont even let a woman drive a car, or they would even stone to death gay people on video at that ... or kill women and children, for just being women and children ... somehow the money and gun's we pump into these latin American drug war's even mysteriously get's into the hand's of those who are killing and raping these same children and supplying much of the dangerous drug's to our nation ... is this NOT FACT? ... of course it is. I mean ... supporting these kidz financially even, is stimulating our regional/ local economies ... something that we lack doing these dayz ... this is money that will be spent and generated here for a change and a future investment, while truely helping those neighbour's of our's, eh? As the song sayz ... Show Your Love!

INDEPENDENCE DAY 2014: Celebrating the DECADE of American ENERGY INDEPENDENCE & A DILDO Up Their ASS ... (From The FOXHOLE with Bernie PT.20) & (Gas Prices At The Pump- 2014 PT.6)





This posting will be the Independence Day 2014 posting and to serve both series of this journal "From The FOXHOLE with Bernie" & "Gas Prices At The Pump" ... I figure what better topic to do for the 4th of July than exposing more of the bullshit were fed in America, and how once again ... this so called energy independence thing is nothing more than a few more inches crammed up our asses in America. Of course as I stated in the start of this journal it is simple to celebrate when you get a deal let's say ... from gas prices that started at $2.00 bucks a gallon ... then they shoot it up to $5 ... then drop it to $3.50/ $4.00 through various manipulations ... you end up thinking you got a deal (typical sales gimmick), when you actually got jacked up 200% ... get my drift, eh? And the excuses for the increases are endless, I believe this week it's the civil conflict in Iraq, or the hurricane that's fixin to hit the east coast, a tornado touching down in PoDunk, Arkansas ... but it can be anything, even nonsensical shit ... I mean ... the Pope can get a "sign" via email from the Virgin Mary and it would go up ... just bullshit and speculative market crap.

For a decade now, all we been hearing about is "energy independence", "energy independence" and "energy independence" from all the oil/ energy giant's to politician's, media's, etc, etc ... and every five year's or so they have a new projected date of when we will get there. Meanwhile thoughout that time, you see the production, supply and profit's skyrocket like never in it's history, yet the prices dont really go down at all ... how is that? ... how is that, that when they go up ... they go up at the pump 20/ 30 cents in less than a week and ONLY drop a few cents at best throughout an entire month? If your lucky to get a 30 cent drop at the pump and put 10 gallons say in your vehicle, you just SAVED (another big word they use) a whopping $3 bucks ... how thrilling, eh? ... while mysteriously on that end were still hypermiling or whatever, trying to pinch and squeeze every cent of that $3 bucks, while driving ourselves into deeper debt ... so SOMETHING must be economically not working or thought out and designed/ planned well.

All we hear about now as well is the Keystone XL Pipeline extension, how Houston which is now a world leader in refining will become even twice as big in the industry to where the entire metro area will be doing it around the clock, jobs, jobs and jobs galore ... and more independence etc, etc, like a broken record, but you see hardly nothing change in our economies ... why is that, eh? ... still yet out of the other side of their mouth's pushing for more cuts and politicians whining how broke they all are, etc. Whether your politically right, left or in between ... a minimal wages contract worker who depend's on your vehicle to make a living, or perhap's even a small company/ business owner who uses many vehicles for your business, or just the average working commuter ... you may be finding yourself asking ... with all this so called independence, free market, etc, and boom of drilling, mining, fracking, etc that is going on ... when in Hell will it pay off and how? ... I mean ... it's been going on for a decade, and nothing has done any of our economic issues much of any good.

I mean like ... what exactly in America for example are all these oil profits doing for our country and citizens? Have they helped any of our social programmes, infrastructure repair's/ update's, funding of our school's that need much? ... reduced our homeless population? (Hell ... we still have thousand's of homeless veteran's who fought in countries for oil company profit's directed by our political representation), how much has went to any of the budget cut's we are having proposed and legislated left and right on a monthly basis these dayz? How much has been used in healthcare for American's?, etc, etc. So when all these politician's and oil giant's boast and brag of this energy independence and/ or how proud we should be or whatever ... you must be asking yourself at some point ... Why? ... what has any of this improved for most folks in our country?

Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont is taking the sensible approach to this and asking the sensible questions below, he is not the most highlighted celebrity politician, not the best hairstyle, or has that popular shit eating grin everytime a camera is on him ... but he makes sense, so give the guy a listen. As for these other politician's selling word's and phrases (Heh, heh, heh, heh, heh (: ) ... I think a few of them actually start believing the bullshit they talk themselves) that endlessly highside while chanting "energy independence!, energy independence!, energy independence!" ... "were almost there" ... every 5 year's, etc ... tell them to put some Tabasco Sauce on it and shove it up their asses ... they certainly shove it up our's.
