Structural Integrity is Nil

Just stepped out of the shower and nearly went through the floor. I reported the questionable support structure under the bathroom floor to Los Angeles County Public Works, Building and Safety department several weeks ago. Because they are involved with the scam, they are ignoring my requests for service and leaving me in an unsafe condition because they do not want to require the contractor, who allegedly pulled the permits, to make the necessary corrections to this unfinished job.

I am now certain this scam involves Building and Safety inspectors and administrators. Had I not persisted in demanding reinspection of this mess that somehow passed final inspection, only to have the Certificate of Occupancy rescinded and a list of the same corrections that needed to be made when the first corrections notice was issued in 2017. Another was issued in 2018, but it was set aside for 18 months with a hope that I would just go away or would be intimidated into silence by the contractor.

The contractor is suing me for defamation, claiming I have cost him one million dollars in damages. I have filed an anti-SLAAP in response. I guess he has been designated to handle me while Building and Safety, Department of Insurance, Safeco/Liberty Mutual close off communication and ignore me.

I experienced similar treatment in the military. I reported sexual harassment to an officer. Next thing I know, he is transferred. I was prevented from getting to the Inspector General, so I stayed a one-woman protest, refusing to do anything except go to class until I was allowed to report what women were suffering at the hands of the Sargent Major in charge of the trainees. We were short-timers. It was easier to stop the behavior while we remained rather than let me report a lifer. Might mess up his retirement.

I now know with certainty that this structure was built without plans, with second-rate materials, and improperly with the blessings of LA County Building and Safety. The project manager who actually worked on this unsafe structure is dead. I think the dead have no rights, so it is safe to name him: Steve Willsey. I never would have known he died had not the contractor who is suing me called to tell me. He also told me I would never get the money he was given by the insurance adjuster. I think I was told about Willsey and was supposed to be afraid. I was threatened. I felt the contractor was attempting to intimidate me, just as he is doing by filing this frivolous lawsuit that violates my right to free speech.

I may not be able to sue this gaslighting crew, but I can let as many as can and will read this know that they need to be wary about insurance claims adjusters, building contractors, insurance companies, and public agencies that are supposed to stand for the consumer but don’t.

Paralegal Notes: Resources

When all regular avenues of complaint have been used and found inadequate there remains another avenue: Claim for Damages.

Before a state or local governing body can be sued in small claims court, a Claim for Damages must be filed. If the body denies the claim, one can then proceed to small claims court to sue. If the claim is accepted, one must wait for the investigation to be completed. If the outcome of the investigation is unsatisfactory, then suit can be filed.

Do You Smell That?

Beloved,

Is it only me, or does it seem odd that there is no concern whatsoever for the millions of people attempting to survive this pandemic? Millions face eviction, no matter what the Oval Office Occupier writes up in executive orders or manages the CDC to execute. Millions are hungry. Millions are afraid.

Do you feel that no one really cares?

Democrat, Republican. Same. Elites playing with our lives. None seem trustworthy. Their talk is always about money. Fundraising. From where is all this money coming? Where are the funds for needed protective equipment for our first responders? Why are doctors, nurses, auxiliary medical personnel being fired? Why are hospitals closing? Why aren’t the funds being used to support necessary social services instead of propping up dead weight for an election? Millions are in debt. Surely, they didn’t help raise all this money the parties continually wave in our faces as some sort of sign of success.

Did I hear correctly that the Pentagon misused CARES funds that were supposed to support COVID services?

Where is the support for the drylongso? In the grave, I suspect. Why else are there more than 200,000 dead of COVID and related biological assaults?

I didn’t choose Biden to be the Democrat nominee. I definitely can’t support Harris; I remember her record. Biden was chosen for the voters by the DNC, a private company that can do as it chooses. I remember his record, too. He’s been at this political racket for about 50 years. I never understood why Obama chose him as a running mate. Surely, he was aware of his record.

Liberals, neoliberals, conservatives, ultraconservatives. Labels that mask the basic greed and predatory behavior of elites, all playing the same game: gut the working poor, gut the workers, gut those who are not us.

Corruption stinks. Can you smell it, Beloved? Why is there no relief for those most in need? Why is there no national plan to help us survive COVID with as few casualties as possible? It feels like the “leadership” wants to kill as many voters off as possible. Those that can’t be killed off will have their ability to vote suppressed.

Our futures are being destroyed. The futures of our youngest are being destroyed. The futures of the unborn so many are concerned about are being destroyed. The future of our planet is being destroyed. Corruption by elites is destroying everything.

Corruption and greed is on the air. Can you smell it?

Go well, Beloved. Go as well as you can.
