New NoFundMe Campaign: No Weep for Wallsuckas

23 Aug

Dear Friend,

This must have been devastating news for you.  Individuals claiming to be friends of the President used their alleged position to falsely proclaim, We Build the Wall.  I know how important that wall is to you.  Our mission is not over.  We will build that wall.  We only need four more years and it is done!

And selling donors’ data!  Brian Kolfage, Andrew Badolato and  Timothy Shea will go down in infamy.  Steve Bannon, perhaps too soon to tell.  Who knows, he pleaded not guilty in Federal court on Thursday.  He gave us Breitbart!  Let’s give him the benefit of the doubt.  And if you think being arrested on the yacht of a Chinese billionaire causes concern, know that the owner of such luxury is an exiled Chinese billionaire.  An important difference.  Guo Wengui made his money in real estate and securities.  For that alone he could only be a friend of Trump and Bannon.  Forget the reports that suggest Guo may not have been what he claims, an activist against the Chinese government, he is here now living life on a yacht.  Glory be!  God forgives all sinners!

The important work has just begun.  Many of these donors to We Build the Wall truly believe in the Make America Great Again vision.  They know separating children from parents at the border is the right thing to do.  They know preventing Muslim immigrants from entering the country is the right thing to do.  We must honor their efforts to uphold this vision.

Therefore, I ask that you donate to a mercy fund reimbursing them for the incredible loss that Kolfage & Co inflicted upon them.  Will they have an income under the Democratic-inflicted false pandemic?  Under executive order, President Trump promises a $300 weekly unemployment benefits extension through the Lost Wages Assistance program.  It could even be $400 weekly if states contribute 25 percent additionally (we have suggestions to counter claims of being cash strapped).  And forget the House of Representatives’ sponsored Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions Act, or HEROES Act.  These poor fleeced idealists need relief but $600 weekly?  Besides, the act is yet another attempt by Democrats to program the minds of the American population and put a pedophile in every household.

Our brave wall donors face other risks.  They could lose their home.  The eviction moratorium expired at the end of July.  Yes, the evil HEROES Act included an extension of an eviction moratorium.  But, as Guo would probably affirm, landlords must make a living too.  Forget the jump in eviction case filings in places like Duval County, Florida.  The burden is upon the tenant, as it should be.  So think about our wall donors.  Would you want to see them homeless?!

We cannot see these bravehearts jobless and homeless.  We need them for the good fight ahead.  As gun-rights advocate Lauren Boebart admonishes us, America is “getting stronger and better.”  And all because of Q!  We need these people secure in their lives so that they can renew four more years of Greatness at the ballot box!

So give generously here to ensure that the lives of the bravest people on earth are restored.

Leap in Progress: From Plague to Pandemic

Hayes Valley Art Works

22 Jul

The boat in these photographs was built from scrap material scavenged around San Francisco.  After submitting a proposal and drawing to Hayes Valley Art Works and receiving an approval, I engaged program participants in helping build this object.  Details such as the metal propeller and badminton oars were made from objects found by my helpers.

It serves as a seat and writing desk and planter box.  It is not yet complete.  A vine is meant to cover the structure including the sail.  Unfortunately, rats have been eating at the roots of the vines I have put in place.  Currently creeping fig is in place and I am hoping that it will survive long enough to begin climbing.

On June 15th the Trump campaign announced that over 1 million tickets were sold for a rally in an arena seating 19,200.  Fortunately, they will get 22,000 inside the arena and make room for everyone else outside the arena.  Tulsa Health Department Director Dr. Bruce Dart “wishes” that the rally would be pushed back because of the surge in cases of COVID-19 locally.  No way, Bruce.  This is exactly the right time.  Couldn’t be better.

I grew up watching bikers on television.  Motorcycles were popular where I grew up in Southern California.  And then Altamont happened and I realized the romantic notion of freedom on a bike on the highways was all a sham.

The lore about the motorcycle and freedom must be vast.  I found a snippet of that lore:

“Fear despair, spoken by other legends
The apocalyptic hell riders
Screaming the song of evil
Flying against the lands
Under a full moon spells
Making to ring the bells
The bells of judgment day
They are the riders of…”
