Greetings from Calico Blackie!
THE WAR ON HOMELESSNESS IN AMERICA?
It sounds good when we hear our politicians speak of ending homelessness.
We think of feeding, housing and educating the poor.
But that’s not what Wall Street and their wholly-owned subsidiary in Washington DC means by a “war.”
What they mean is a different type of eradication.
They mean ending homelessness the same way it was ended in 1936 Berlin.
They mean criminalizing homelessness and locking away the homeless and mentally ill (as was done in Nazi Germany).
Study up on how Germany ended their “homeless problem” in the 1930s. You will be amazed. They either enlisted the homeless and unemployed in the military, or they killed them.
AND, UNLIKE HERE, THEY ALSO STARTED HUGE JOBS PROGRAMS TO PUT SOME OF THE UNEMPLOYED TO WORK. So, are our “leaders” any better than them today?
Well, to be fair, we’re not rounding up and gassing whole segments of our society. That wouldn’t be profitable.
We have a “jobs” program.
Our massive jobs program is called THE PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX.
Oh, it’s a war alright. It’s a war on all of us and we’ve GOT to fight back.
Schools closing. Youth programs cancelled. More layoffs.
Yet, the CEO’s still reap record salaries and bonuses while we’re told to be good little citizens and to stop our whining.
WE LIVE IN THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!
We hear that every day.
Well…..SCREW YOU! SCREW YOU AND YOUR SMUG “I GOT MINE” ATTITUDES.
Guess what, you bastards? Do you think that I and millions like me are going to passively sit on our asses while you rig the game and rob us?
THEY DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT THEIR COUNTRY AND THEY SURE AS HELL DON’T GIVE A DAMN ABOUT US. They’re trying to make us all their slaves.
Here’s the latest batch of doublespeak bullshit from our “leaders” and their puppetmasters.
Laws That Target Homeless Imperil Programs That Feed Them Outdoors
“A growing number of cities want to tackle the problem of homelessness by outlawing what are known as “acts of daily living” — sleeping, eating and panhandling in public.”
“In Philadelphia, a new rule is targeting not the homeless but those who feed them.”
“When Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter announced the ban on serving food in public parks last March, he said moving such services indoors was part of an effort to raise standards for the homeless.”
“I believe that people, regardless of their station in life, should be able to actually sit down, at a table, to a meal inside, away from the heat and the cold, the rain and the snow, the vehicle exhaust and all the other distractions of everyday city life,” Nutter said at a press conference.
“Indoor facilities, Nutter says, also make it easier to connect homeless people with other supportive services.”
Calico Blackie says:
Bullshit, Nutter. Cut the doublespeak.
When someone is hungry, food is food whether you eat it inside or outside.
You’re just trying to make it tougher on those less fortunate than you, and are trying to squash those who try to help the homeless. You’re not trying to help them.
You’re trying to register them.
Will he be shutting down all the outdoor cafes and patios in the city?
He’s attempting to make criminals out of homeless people and the people that help them. My question is: Why is he doing this and who told him to do this?
The article continues with…..
“Around 30 cities have restricted food sharing in some way. A growing number of ordinances against loitering, panhandling and camping, don’t just marginalize the homeless. It really takes the focus off of solutions and puts it much more on restrictions.“
“A Philadelphia city spokesman wouldn’t comment for this story owing to the pending litigation. Similar measures in Las Vegas and, more recently, Houston, have been rolled back after public outcry or legal challenges.”
Have you seen this story?:
Layoffs To Leave Best Buy’s Geek Squad Short Several Hundred Geeks
“In the big media push that started with its most recent Super Bowl ads, Best Buy had been trying to position itself as a store that provided the one thing its online competitors couldn’t — knowledgeable, tech-savvy employees that can deal with customers on a face-to-face basis.”
“Well, forget all about that hogwash, because the company has told its employees that it is laying off at least 650 Geek Squad staffers in the coming weeks.”
“A Consumerist reader tipped us off to the news over the holiday that several thousand Best Buy employees took part in a conference call, during which the company detailed its plans to lay off hundreds of Geek Squad’s techs who handle in-home installation and repairs.”
“They were read a two-minute canned script about how they needed to wait for a phone call in the next eight hours from a supervisor to find out if they still had a job,” wrote the Consumerist tipster.

Calico Blackie says:
I wonder how many “geek squad” members were calling the “Occupy” protesters “dirty hippies” last month?
I wonder how many of them will find themselves homeless if they can’t get a place to stay in their parent’s basement?
The ones who are competent will be pushed out of Best Buy in favor of the ones with “good attitudes” and “great customer service.” That’s doublespeak meaning that those willing to kiss the asses of management rather than telling customers the truth about a product/issue will stay.
IT’S THE CORPORATE AMERICAN WAY!
I wonder if any of them will eventually find themselves in jail?
If you can’t see that all of these layoffs and moves to criminalize homelessness are methods being used by the 1% to provide workers in their Prison Industrial Complex, then you’re blind.
If you can’t see that all of these moves to dismantle the Constitution and take away our rights as citizens are methods being used by the 1% to provide workers in their Prison Industrial Complex, then you’re blind.
If you can’t see that this bogus “War” on drugs is a method being used by the 1% to provide workers in their Prison Industrial Complex, then you’re blind.
If you can’t see that all of these cuts in education and reductions in youth programs in cities and counties where they’re needed most in America are methods to provide workers in their Prison Industrial Complex, then you’re blind.
END THE NEWSPEAK NOW!
Mayor Nutter and the rest of his cronies throughout the country will end homelessness alright.
The homeless and mentally ill will find a new home in prison.
A new home alongside the millions in the “first wave” already there for maybe possessing a few joints or some other minor infraction.
The homeless will be the 2nd wave of new “employees.”
And, to all you rednecks out there who smugly sit back in your recliners and say “fuck ‘em. Let them go to jail. I’m not doing anything wrong”?
Just wait until our government finishes gutting the 1st Amendment and uses our lack of free speech as a tool to gut the 2nd Amendment. Gutting the 1st Amendment while you said NOTHING.
YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO LEGALLY PROTEST.
And all your talk about “cold dead hands” will fade away like the lingering smell of a fart as you meekly turn in your Winchester to the ATF.
Oh yeah, there would be some resistance, just like there was in Australia.
But, with the loss of the 1st Amendment, the media will be able to sway public opinion against you. Any armed resistance will be ruthlessly crushed, and you will NEVER hear about it on the corporate controlled news channels.
Meanwhile, all those “dirty hippies” that fought for you and your rights while you fought against them will be in prison.You’ll see all of the “Occupiers” that wanted to see an end to corruption in government there.
For owning your gun, and not turning it in like a “good” citizen, you will go to prison while YOUR wife’s new boyfriend reads “The Night Dad Went to Jail” to YOUR kids.
All those “dirty hippies” that fought for clean air and non-poisonous food will be in prison too. They weren’t “good” citizens either.
But, don’t worry. We’ll save you a bunk & a soap on a rope.
PLEASE REALIZE THAT WHAT IS HAPPENING IN OUR COUNTRY TODAY IS AN ATTACK ON ALL MIDDLE-CLASS AND POOR CITIZENS OF AMERICA.
It’s an attack on our Constitution.
It’s an attack on YOU.
So, my fellow citizens…..
Join me when I shout:
OCCUPY WALL STREET!
For the CONSTITUTION
ALL OF IT!
