I Don’t See Color

Here’s a phrase that sincerely chaps my ass. What if the police ask you to describe me? Whachugonsay? Discovered my disgust with this statement after getting into a discussion about who can and can’t say nigger. We concluded with the thought that anyone can say anything (conditional) because this is a country that constitutionally guarantees freedom of speech. I added that saying anything means being ready and able to take […]

What is Wrong with US?

Are we really all racists? Are we all irresponsible? Are we all trying to die? From opioids to laundry pods, are we really this stupid? I can’t watch the news unless it comes from someplace outside of America. I am sick of being exposed, on the daily, to the lies, misdirection, and hatred coming from the top. I don’t want to see that ugly man’s face, but it is plastered […]

Casting Back

No, this isn’t about knitting, though that is my world nowadays. No, this is about remembering, triggered memory. Read the name Owen and cast back to my neighbors, the Owens. Large family, all varying shades of mocha with the exception of the only son, Anthony. I secretly adored his handsome chocolate brown frame.

Hard to believe the tree started from something like a weed, easily yanked out of the earth before it can grow into […]

Last March, the day before my birthday, I sent a Demand Letter to the owner of the property. I asked for $7500 in compensation for harassment, threats on my life, taunting, attempted humiliation, and exposure to violence. They seem to have forgotten how they have treated me from 2008 […]

Banksters vs Hamilton: The Latest (Real/Real)

Filed complaints with Better Business Bureau, Consumer Affairs, CA State Department of Business Oversight, and the young Consumer Financial Protection Bureau http://consumerfinance.gov. I also wrote to Senator Elizabeth Warren as I know her to be a consumer advocate and quite involved in the formation and operation of the CFPB. My representative from Consumer Affairs had to negotiate with MGC Mortgage, and it was not a pretty affair, but he gained […]

MGC MORTGAGE, INC. cont’d (REAL/REAL)

Have filed a fraud claim with Consumer Affairs, complaint with California State Department of Business Oversight. Will likely have to file for Injunctive Relief as MGC Mortgage, Inc. and the Law Offices Of Les Zieve represented by Ms Karen Talafus are incommunicado, closed to observe the holiday. I am right indignant at being left uninformed about what to do when dealing with the real property of a deceased parent and […]
