Trump’s not responsible for the homeless crisis; it’s liberal leadership…
Shafter, CA 93263, 03-12-2020 Thursday: My wife recorded the Monterey Pop Festival movie that appeared on, uh, I think Turner Classic Movies of all places, so when I arrived home, we sat down and watched it. Now we know where all the homeless littering the streets came from, mis amigos, they started doing the drugs back in the 1960s and the ancient ones lying alongside dilapidated buildings, along the fences of public parks, the ones staggering up and down the streets begging for change in a cashless world all began back in the 1960s.
Now, I am not criticizing the music because the music was great, superb, never-to-be-repeated, not at least for another century or so. You know everyone here at the blog is a love of that music, the music of the bands that exploded out of the 1960s and the 1970s- usted sabe, explotó fuera de los 1960s y los 1970s– and for those that were fortunate enough to carry on as far as they could.
While we had some interesting music in the 1980s and 1990s like the techno-pop and the Grunge movements, most of the bands we have the misfortune to now see suck. They truly suck. There is no other way for me to put it, they all suck. I mean, look at Maroon Five, everyone loves criticizing them because they are so horrible. It’s like Adam Levine, did they somehow castrate that wimpy little prick while he lay kicking and squirming on the delivery table?
The 1960s was a rough time for many of us who survived the decade and the 1970s were even worse as many who were unable to survive the free love, the drugs, the political insanity, were unable to pick up with their lives and to move on.
I think the crisis of homelessness has gone up and down over the decades. There have been times when there have been more people on the streets and there have been times when there were less. What I will tell you is that when Republicans are president, there are more on the streets than when Democrats are in the White House but not for the reasons you might suspect or believe.
I have been a student of politics for my entire life. When I was in the kitchen standing next to my dad, shucking hojas and making masa, he used to tell me that politics were not cut and dry, that even though he was a lifelong Democrat, he voted his conscience and never because a local Democratic leader told him to vote this way or that. I followed his lead.
What I know is that Democrats love it when there is a Republican in the White House and with the economy doing gangbusters, they will point to the homeless, the drug-addicted, the alcoholics, the poor, the illegal, and say, “See: this is what Republicanism is, MISERY. Stay away from it.”
Well, the economy has been doing quite well until COVID-19 popped up and elected Democrats said, “We can use this to destroy Trump!” Then they start to work hard to downplay the excellent economic numbers we got at the first of the month and act as though the coronavirus is somehow Trump’s fault. It’s not; it’s the damned Chinese, they are the ones at fault.
Anyhow, the Democrats- like here in California- LOVE it when people inhabit the streets in rank misery. They love it when they yank their pants down and start dumping right in front of the schoolkids because then they can point eastward towards Washington, D.C., and blame Trump for THEIR policies.
If you want to know WHO bears total responsibility for the devastating circumstances we see on the streets of our state, it’s Gavin Newsom, it’s Xavier Becerra, it’s Jerry Brown, it’s Dianne Feinstein, it’s Kamala Harris, it’s the government of San Francisco (San Francisco!), the government of Los Angeles, ALL of these liberal west coast Democrats are the ones who bear full responsibility for what we are seeing.
Amigos, I think a tidal wave is coming to California this November. I think that unless the Democrats can engineer some catastrophe such as invite aliens from Uranus to suddenly begin invading the Earth and blame the invasion on Trump, the man is going to win a MASSIVE re-election and then we can begin the process of cleaning up the streets and doing what is morally correct: helping the homeless whether they want it or not.
THIS is what using the crisis of COVID-19 to best effect will do: rounding up the homeless and deporting the illegals.
Nos vemos, mis amigos! P.S.: we are going to recall Gavin Newsom one way or the other.

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960’s when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug.
