Note:There are many things I had wanted to write about which will be left undone.This is one that I had wanted to use to challenge American trade unions when NAFTA
was being discussed a decade ago . . . . .
Equity Trade Tariffs are theoretically possible but in practice political pressure would push them up to restrict competition
and protect the politically powerful domestic pressure groups.
are Social Equity Tariffs?In principle it can be seen that part of the reason
Chinese or Mexican goods under price American goods is that the domestic goods carry in their price the cost of educating
American children.And vaccinating them.And providing sewer plants, and sidewalks, and . . . You got the picture?
visitors will recall previous Lectures in which we have explained how “information” is conveyed to the consumer
in the “bottom line.”For example we have previously explained that
the so called “progressive income tax” does not fall as the IRS tax tables “objectively” suggest, on the narrow income bands setout in the tables, but rather they, like
all other taxes and in fact all other costs of any type, are redistributed by the dynamics of the market economy.
is called the price mechanism tax transfer.All companies and individuals operating
at a profit are operating in a tax free state, for the “profit” confirms that all costs have been accounted for
in the price, the “bottom line”.Their so called “progressive
income tax” along with their “property tax” and their special district “sidewalks and curbs”
taxes, all taxes, and all other costs have been charged off to the consumers of the good or service.
has not yet been examined is how this never ending round of price increases results in the inflation or over pricing of American
labor and goods.Note that as America is priced out of the world market the American elite can shift itself to world trade abandoning the
American people.For example we have extensively examined how the Blue States
of Massachusetts, New York, England, and California have used exclusionary zoning and building restrictions to force up the cost of housing.Owners of real estate have experienced price appreciation of their assets yet see how these economies now
have higher costs without higher increases in productivity.This is called inflation.The workers in these states now must try to increase their wages in order to afford
shelter, which if they are successful will further increase their prices relative to other nations to the extent these price
increases do not arise out of increased productivity.Though Californian workers
will become less productive on the world market the American elite can simply transfer its activities to the lower cost producers.This is true even if it was this very same elite who originally set off the rounds
of inflation with its anti-growth and no growth construction policies.(And note
this is true even when this very same elite follows an “open borders” policy in the form of Mr. Bush’s White
House.Unlimited immigration while simultaneously down zoning and excluding may
appear here as a contradiction yet this logical fact need not in anyway influence the policy makers, the elite, who are free
to defy logic and justice.At one time the American elite felt duty bound to
increase the opportunities for the American people, i.e. to lower the cost of food, housing, etc. etc. not increase these
costs.But this was a very long time ago.)
then the toaster imported from China
sells for $10 and not $11 because the $1 tax needed to pay for the education of China’s children has not been charged to the Chinese toaster manufacturer.Had health care been charged:$11.25.Place antipollution scrubbers on the steel plant which made the steel for the toaster:$11.26.
review of the cost of sewer plants, schools, roads, houses, vaccinations, pollution controls, etc., etc., would allow the
computation of the Social Equity Tariff to be imposed.
makes this Tariff a Social Equity Tariff and not simply a Trade Tariff in restriction of international trade is that the entirety
of the tariff is then rebated to the country of origin.If after calculation
of the Social Equity costs the toaster now costs $16.35 the full amount of the tariff, $6.35, is then rebated to China.(The administrative cost should be born
by a neutral third party, the OECD for example, and could be paid out of the interest on the float prior to rebate.)
of Social Equity is that the consumers in the First World should not be enriched by the failure of the nation of origin to
provide education for its children.The products should bare the full price necessary
for sustainable social development.
the nation of origin could in turn simply rebate the checks to the producers without spending the money on the social goods
and services, i.e. subsidize its exports.Or take the money and spend it on other
activities, the military, for example.Such diversions would have to be monitored
and the tariffs modified accordingly to counteract these diversions.
though in principle these calculations are quite simple at a practical political level the added Social Equity Tariff would
be raised until the trade ceased as politically powerful groups, trade unions, domestic manufacturers, pushed for ever higher
tariffs to restrict trade not Social Equity.
see the ever greater exploitation of labor in developing countries as those governments oppress the workers so that goods
can be produced without the costs of vaccines, school books, pollution controls.
every quarter meet with the governors of Mexico and hand them Tariff Checks for the millions of dollars raised in America
on the goods imported into the USA to pay for the roads, hospitals and schools their growing country needs.But instead the American consumer enjoys a good produced at the cost of Social Equity.
because as has been stated above, the difficulty is that the system of tariffs would soon be exploited by the political elite
to protect the elite not to increase Social Equity.
fundamentally the reader will note his own lack of interest in a program which will increase the cost of goods here, while
providing social goods to “foreigners” in Mexico or China.‘What’s
in it for me?’ is the question that has been knocking around in the back of the reader’s head and now, seeing
that there is nothing for the reader, the reader is unsatisfied and the reader’s interest is rapidly waning.
for Social Equity.
in China will move through polluted streets to slave wages workshops to produce goods for the reader that do not include the
cost of schools, houses, all the things that make society sustaining.
about that the next time you go to the store and reach for the box on the shelf.

of living in Marin is that you have these police departments which will carry out intel operations and photocopy the notebook

of your calculation was that you knew you lived in the middle of this vast network of relations.Relations with the police andSheriff of Marin and you knew
that they are largely unregulated.They can do whatever they want.And you knew there were other relationships, with KQED and the Red Comedian and Sedge Thomson, and with
Ron Owens at KGO, and on and on.
I first moved to Marin I shared a townhouse in MillValley with Helga Lohr Bailey.
No, first you had that apartment in San Rafael.
Yes!(Photographic memory.)You are right.I had forgotten.Then later I tried again
to start over and rented in Marin.Yes I remember now.I have tried and tried.

. . . we are in the middle of a lecture . . . I am sure our audience wants to hear about the Two Houses, zoning, tax, government
regulation, you know there is a kind of conservatism to the recent opposition to the Kelo decision. They support exclusionary
zoning and, (or that should be AND), they support
abolition of redevelopment zones.They oppose all progress!They do not want the government to allow construction anywhere!(And
what are they but Post Liberal also?)

the billionaire, Richard ‘Rick’ Parasol, are forced to pay an extra $250,000 it is because as Mr. Parasol says,
because he “can.”Just that.The market condition is that he can raise the price.And why can he?Because the liberal establishment, the Democrats, liberals like Bernie Ward, and people

have created the situation in which the people are subject to the predation of the Parasols of Marin.

Paul Duke in Memoriam
no relations.Not that Clan.
Not that Clan!--- Paul Duke
After writing a number of letters to President Bush, (41), and the Senate, Mr. Bush and
several Senators began responding to my letters with veiled references during press conferences or from the floor of the Senate.Over time as they learned of my letters and the interest shown, many members of the
press started making references of there own to what I had written. It became a kind of game I think.
I took no particular interest for I had intended to write about laser disks in education,
do what I could to promote technology in education, (I had promised myself when I was in school that I would “do something,”
(for there seemed no reason to me, then or now, why we had to make education so miserable), and then I planned to kill myself.This was before I met Yvonne and came to think that there was any alternative.
(Now, after fifteen years of harassment and oppression I am again brought to the end.Ironically it is because of the attention the letters achieved that I was followed
and persecuted, first by the “oh so cool liberals” at KQED, then the lunatic Michael Weiner, and then by everyone
else, Ron Owens, Don Imus, Michael Krasney, Mrs. Jack Swanson. Envy?Was it Envy?God knows.After fifteen years they have ruined me and I am again forced to seek refuge from time.)
Unintentionally I contributed to the “game” by limiting the distribution of
the letters.I started off sending copies to all Senators but gradually limited
“membership” to those who responded.I would mail several dozen letters
at a time but only to the select group of Senators who hadmade some covert reference.
(For example, one Senator, who was not included on the distribution list made some statement about my most recent letter and
in the next one, addressed to him, I congratulated him on his acceptance to the club.)Then as members of the press learned about the letters and came to understand the covert references they too started
to play, making references of their own to what I had written. It became a kind of game I think.
Week in Review became a venue.For example after mentioning Buddhism in several
letters the regular correspondent Hanes Johnson, (I believe his brother is Chalmers Johnson one of whose books I had quoted,
(Japans Public Policy Companies, as I recall, (all my books are in boxes, (I could not bring myself to give them away after
all, (but when I’m dead what the diff?))))), commented “There are a lot of conservative Buddhists in Japan.”
Part of the joke here is that in America Buddhist are all liberals.But you have to figure that
the reason people are attracted to foreign religions is because they are dissatisfied with their own religions, and if dissatisfied
with their own religions you can expect that they will be dissatisfied with much else.Rebels.
So American Buddhism is colored by this fact that most of its members are liberals, Greens, radicals,
i.e. misfits.Alan Watts and most teachers, (the good ones), are at pains to
try and point out this misperception, to correct this misinterpretation. For example the Tao Te Ching comments than one should
not “display weapons.”Watts commented to his young students, this was the 1960’s, that the word is “display” not own.But most Americans assume Buddhist are leftists because of the self selection process among the small group
that control Buddhist centers in America, a situation not unlike that with our colleges, where a small group of radicals are
also in control.
Paul Duke himself made several references to what I had written in a number of letters.I recall that I had had some success with one letter, after which
a number of personages commented.(see July
30, 1991, Senator Bradley, in the
New Ruskin Project Archives at the Moynihan Memorial Library)I had pointedout in that
letter that the South had been settled by Celtic peoples
whereas the North on the other hand had been settled by the English.
I pointed out that much of the North South difference is really Celtic English differences.For example, “Black Pride”, I claimed, could
be traced back to “Southern Pride”, and I said , “Southern
Pride” can in turn be traced back to “Scottish Pride.”One
Senator appeared on the floor of the Senate and seemed to make a point of saying he had “pride” in his State,
in his people, etc.(Senator Gore as I recall.)
Then later Senator Moynihan was appearing on
TV with someone, (the former quarter back who was Secretary of HUD), who was as usual extolling Adam Smith and our “Anglo
Moynihan interrupted him, “Celtic sir, Celtic, Adam Smith was Scottish not Anglo Saxon; let’s
have no more of your Anglo Saxons.”
Also in that letter I made a point to explain that in the South clan was an inherited form
of social organization, and that Black Americans had themselves also formed extended family groups under the Celtic influence
of the clan tradition.Eleanor Holmes Norton that week seemed to go out of her
way to claim that Black Americans had inherited their extended relations from their African roots and not from their Celtic
Then Paul Duke ended the week with a Friday broadcast of Washington Week, by saying that several letter writers to his show
had asked if he was related to David Duke, the notorious David Duke who was at that time being used to attack conservatives,
including me, (see Senator Hollings).
Said Paul Duke:“We are no relations.Not that Clan. Not that Clan!”
I was not amused.
Muslim scholars: Terrorists not martyrs
Items compiled from Tribune
news services Published July 29, 2005
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- American Muslim scholars on Thursday carried out their plan to issue an edict
condemning religious extremism and calling terrorists "criminals, not `martyrs.'"
The 18-member Fiqh Council of North
America said Muslims were barred from helping "any individual or group that is involved in any act of terrorism or violence."
is no justification in Islam for extremism or terrorism," the scholars wrote in the edict, called a fatwa. "Targeting civilians'
life and property through suicide bombings or any other method of attack is haram--or forbidden."
The fatwa states
that Muslims are obligated to help "protect the lives of all civilians."
Islam has no central authority, and the council
serves an advisory role for U.S. Muslims.
Stop Terror Sheikhs, Muslim Academics Demand Staff Writer
YORK, 30 October 2004 — Over 2,500 Muslim intellectuals from 23 countries have signed a petition to the United Nations
calling for an international treaty to ban the use of religion for incitement to violence.
It also calls on the Security
Council to set up a tribunal to try “the theologians of terror.” The petition is addressed to Secretary-General
Kofi Annan, and to all members of the Security Council and its current chairman.
“There are individuals in the
Muslim world who pose as clerics and issue death sentences against those they disagree with,” says Shakir Al-Nablusi,
a Jordanian academic and one of the signatories. “These individuals give Islam a bad name and foster hatred among civilizations.”
said hundreds of Arab writers and academics were collecting more signatures and hope to have “tens of thousands”
by next month. Among those collecting signatures are Jawad Hashem, a former Iraqi minister of planning, and Alafif Al-Akdhar,
a leading Tunisian writer and academic. Most of the signatories are from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf states plus Iraq, Jordan
The signatories describe those who use religion for inciting violence as “the sheikhs of death”.
Among those mentioned by name is Yusuf Al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian preacher working in Qatar. The signatories accuse him of “providing
a religious cover for terrorism.”
Last year Qaradawi raised a storm when he issued a fatwa allowing the killing
of Israeli pregnant women and their unborn babies on the ground that the babies could grow up to join the Israeli Army. Last
September, Qaradawi in a fatwa in response to a question from the Egyptian Union of Journalists said killing “all Americans,
civilian or military” in Iraq was allowed.
“We cannot let such dangerous nonsense to pass as Islam,”
The petition also names the late Egyptian preacher Muhammad Al-Ghazzali who, in 1992, issued a fatwa
for the murder of Farag Foda, an anti-clerical writer in Cairo. Within weeks of the fatwa, zealots murdered Foda in his home.
“sheikhs of death” mentioned include the Yemeni Abdul-Majid Al-Zendani, and the Saudis Ali bin Khudhair Al-Khudhair
and Safar Al-Hawali. The two Saudis have described the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks against the United States as “retaliations”,
and thus justified under Islamic law.
Issuing murder fatwas has a long story.
In 1947 the late Ayatollah Khomeini
issued a fatwa against Ahmad Kasravi, one of Iran’s most prominent lawyers. A few weeks later, six men stabbed Kasravi
to death in a court of law. In 1951 a group of mullas issued a fatwa for the murder of Iran’s Prime Minister Haji-Ali
Razmara. He was shot dead a few days later. In 1989 Khomeini issued a fatwa for the murder of the British novelist Salman
The signatories of the petition also want the UN to order its member states to stop broadcasting the “mad
musings of the theologians of terror.”
Sean Hannity 07-21-05 went on the air and announced that he was “married” to his show
and his audience.
I think he has been cheating on us.
For example, when introducing Dr.
Hammesfahr as a “Noble Prize Nominee.”Didn’t Sean Hannity
first consider that his audience would be able to see how dishonest he was?He
did not care about our opinion of him or his credibility.We do not count in
his estimation of the power situation.
Or when discussing the Bush open borders
policy he said to an irate caller, “they are introducing technology to police the border. . . .”a line right out of the White House briefing instructions to stooges. Even
Rush Limbaugh will criticize the Bush open border policy.But not Sean.
Or in discussing the Kelo decision
he repeatedly claimed that the Supreme Court was taking, or seizing property, etc., instead of telling the truth that the court had permitted, or deferred to the elected officials, allowed that they should first
decide what is a public purpose.Does he want only judges to decide what is a
public purpose?Of course he was not himself proposing anything he has no ideas
of his own.
Sean Hannity has recommended Michael
Weiner’s books (“a great read”) and had him on his TV show.Weiner
for his part now refers to Hannity as “that Irishman” or “Pawn Hannity” or “Mr.” --- well
you get the idea.
Hannity is a suck up.He sucks up and kicks down.
He knows that Weiner and Mrs. Jack
Swanson have used their influence to ruin my life. He knows about the burglary, about the stalking me from place to place,
job to job . . . he knows and does not care.
He goes out of his way to show that
he does not care, or even to let it be known that he enjoys the spectacle of his radio colleagues destroying another.
He delights in cruelty.
And consider Al Franken recently going
out of his way to show his enjoyment in another’s suffering, even suicide.
This is our society.
bad for a homeless guy.”
Sean Hannity, 07-20-05,
at the end of an “interview” with Senator McCain ( McCain see 4-28-05, Lecture Notes: 5-18-05, Lecture Notes:07-18-05Protest)
Sean, when you do things like this your business partners just don’t understand.
are thinking: “We give him payola every week to mention Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, on the air,(how much do they give you Sean? all reported to the IRS is it Sean?), and now we have an IPO about to come out, an IPO for Christ sake! . . . and dis radio c___ s___ing dick
is going ta screws it all up so he can f___ wit’ some guy in California?What a Long Island sack of s___.”
your business partners have been working this scam for some time now.And you
were just a part of it.To help with the buzz.Mention those delicious steaks, talk it up, get. . . what $10,000 a mention?
Oh, $1,000? . . . cheap radio advertising . . . and this would help with the IPO, and God knows they need help with the IPO.
pig needs a lot a lipstick:“debt load, which came in at $116 million as
of March 27.”
have not only cooked Sean Hannity some free steaks, they have cooked the books.They
had to:“Revenue, which fell in 2001 and 2002, rose 14.6 percent last year
and operating income climbed 50.6 percent from the year earlier.”
impressive?How do you like that “.6%”?Not just “14%” but see that little something extra?Sean
helped with that did you Sean?
Impressive?It is not until the end of the article that you will read:“Ruth's Chris didn't open any new restaurants last year and closed two locations, including one in
Manhattan, as it overhauled its management, including hiring a new chief executive in March 2004.”(New chief executive?Gee I wonder why?Some problem with the books?Or . . .?)
ya sees?If you do not open any restaurants you do not have any of those “expenses.”Helps with the “balance sheet.”(Never mind that the business plan is to open 80 new restaurants with all those expenses.)
business “reporters” are all over the “trend in eating out” and how Sean’s favorite restaurant
is free from any risk of a turn down in the economy.How so?Because it is so expensive!See?That is where the rich go to eat so, yas knows, the rich’s gota eat.Rich men like Sean, does ya sees?
reported did tell us who the players are, Sean Hannity’s business partners and why the IPO is so important to them:“Madison Dearborn could receive an additional payment from selling 1.7 million
shares covered by the underwriters' over allotment option. . . . Other holders of junior and senior preferred stock are set
to be paid a total of $20.6 million by Ruth's Chris.”
why Sean Hannity didn’t talk about how the IRS
was auditing him.They even came to his studio to search for records.“I just never talk about it”is all he wouldsay, on the air.
I was targeted by the IRS (see The IRS and the Illegals from the North), I felt it was my duty to tell how, during
the Clinton administration, the IRS revealed my name
to the very people that they had asked me to help investigate, Crawford and Company, and told them that I had cooperated in
the investigation.But not Sean Hannity:“I just never talk about it”.(Sees ya?Yas just gota dummy up.See?When das police are – ya know – questionings ya, you just gota dummy up.Right Sean?)
those of you who think the economy is an evenly rotating system of objective fixed relations here is an interesting example.Here at New Ruskin we have argued that, for example, the IRS tax tables do not accurately explain who actually pays the tax.
argued that the rich, (those who are making goods and services which are in high demand), pass on their taxes to their consumers
in higher prices, (the price mechanism of tax transfer).This is why the poor
have such a high “propensity to spend” they end up paying their own taxes, and all the other taxes, and all other
expenses in the price of the goods they purchase.We have explained that both
Democrats and Republicans misrepresent the situation, each for their own political calculation.
us now consider the true value of the payola paid by Ruth's Chris to Sean Hannity every time Sean mentions the steakhouse
chain.How much is the under the table payment, (the tax free payment), worth
to Sean given Sean’s tax bracket?For extra credit, Class, How much income
must Ruth's Chris hide in order to pay Sean?
with the IPO, Sean, the stakes are much higher.How much is Sean getting out
of the IPO?How much extra commission must the underwriters charge to pay Sean?(All reported is it, Sean?)
is why yas “business partners” doesn’t understands yas Sean.Why
would you mess with some guy in California
right now, right when the IPO is coming out?
is not just the IRS, and the FCC, but Sean wants to add the SEC!
See Sean?It is things like this that give good old boys from Long Island a bad reputation.
bad for a homeless guy” didn’t even fit in the conversation with Senator McCain.You are supposed to at least try and work it into the conversation.See?That is what makes them covert.
you just look like a dick.
and secrets.So many secrets.And
this is the whole society.Top to bottom.Why didn’t socialism work.The economist say because it did not
allow for “economic calculation” but really because people are so dishonest.My tormenters have stalked me for these fifteen years, brought me to the end, and Sean Hannity interviewing Senator
McCain wanted to take a little poke.(In the middle of an IPO!)But this is just one small example.A world of hate, cruelty,. . .
Do but seriously consider how much more insupportable and painful an immortal life would be to man than what I have
already given him.If you had not death, you would eternally curse me for having
deprived you of it; I have mixed a little bitterness with it, to the end, that seeing of what convenience it is, you might
not too greedily and indiscreetly seek and embrace it: and that you might be so established in this moderation, as neither
to nauseate life, nor have any antipathy for dying, which I have decreed you shall once do, I have tempered the one and the
other betwixt pleasure and pain. ---- MONTAIGNE

is a bubble?
to me that despite my best efforts you still think that “housing bubble” is an objective question.That is why you consult economists, real estate experts, and
again you fall back on the easy: “objective”.And again my sad friends
you are wrong.A bubble is a subjective decision, an opinion.
we say real estate prices are in a bubble what we mean is that we do not believe the prices are sustainable.
do we mean:sustainable?
as only 16% of Californian households can afford the median priced home, (see WSJ) then we might think that this is not sustainable.However, and to demonstrate
the supremacy of the subjective, suppose now it is argued that in a world of 6 billion people, even if we focus only on the
wealthiest ½ of 1 percent, that still leaves us 30
million people, 30 million potential customers, buyers, and many of these potential
customers might consider purchasing a home in California?
that in all of the United States we sell each year approximately 7.5 million homes.
is less than¼ of the top ½ of one
percent of the world’s wealthiest!And what percent of the 7.5 sales need
be bought to influence the price and keep it ever upward?If only a fraction
of the world’s potential buyers were to decide to purchase a home in the USA, if only as a hedge against the world economy, all homes sold in that year could conceivably
be sold to foreign buyers.
means that though only 16% of Californians can afford the median priced home, there were tens of millions of potential buyers
around the world who could.As we have just seen if only a fraction of this small
group were to buy in America not only could all California homes sales be bought up, but all homes sold for the entire year throughout America could be bought!
see the point, even though the price of homes could thereby be maintained one might nonetheless conclude that prices are still
in a bubble.
one might conclude that the situation is not sustainable.One might consider
what effect shutting out the bottom 84% of Californians from purchasing the median priced home would have on the CaliforniaRepublic?
(see SFGate )Consider the China bid for Unocal.
need a degree in Economics to see a bubble?No!Indeed the economist is more likely to think that the bubble is an objective question rather than seeing the deeper
say the price is not sustainable because a society which excludes 84% of its members is not sustainable!
is more to say.I want to go on about the oligarchy.I want to describe how the oligarchy hides its venality behind liberalism.I want to hold Ms. Warner up to ridicule as an example . . . The rats and the sinking ship . . . leaving the people
in the dark . . . and Mr. Bush’s open borders policy, and his support of racial quotas as another example . . . how
left and right, Democrat and Republican join together . . . the easy answers, the avoidance of the real issues . . .
I want to talk about all of this as examples of our failure to respond to changing situations because of our dishonesty in
our appraisal, our unwillingness to be intellectually challenged, our preference for the easy answers which our politicians
are all too willing to provide us . . .
Thomas Friedmen: “You can not make it as a B+ student in Brooklyn
anymore.” (I think quoting Bill Gates approvingly.)That the reader can not see in Friedmen’s words the same dishonesty proves the point.This intolerance for the B+ barely conceals the utter disdain for the B, and the C, and what of the others?To say, almost joyfully, “can not make it,”is dishonest because it is easy, because it avoids the really serious questions.Like the Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly, Glenn Beck, Michael Weiner, pap, and mental
popcorn . . . with its focus on “excellence” and “success” and its repeated “this is what makes
America great . . .” pomposity.
California accepts the top 12% of its high school graduates into
the UC system and the top 25% into the CSU system.Yet in a world of 6 billion people accepting only the top 3% would produce a potential
entering freshman class of over 45 million students of college age, more than the total population of California.(There are a little over 2 million students in California colleges.)Why reach all the way down to the twelfth percentile?Why not just the top 3%?Why not the best?(From around the world?Don’t you believe in meritocracy?)Indeed, due to Mr. Bush’s open border policy, and California’s rule never to ask the legal status of students at its universities, the only
thing preventing the rush on the colleges is the cost of the air faire to get to California.
wanted to describe how all of this is part of the bubble economy, for the bubble
is not just the price, it is all
of this subjective evaluation, critical thinking, of what is and is not sustainable . . .You could be expanding
opportunities, using laser disks in education, world wide, you could be building more houses, using modular construction,
building nuclear power plants . . .
to think that racial and gender quotas caused the deterioration in relations, encouraged the VICTIMs to act out, confirmed
them in their false belief of moral superiority, encouraged their hatred and
arrogance, etc. , but now I see that a society capable of enacting such a spoils system already had so ruined its human relations,
so objectified its prejudices . . .
I say, I had a great deal more to say about this and much else . . .here are
some links. . .
July 18, 2005 ,House prices drop 1%, says Rightmove
last hours unfold it all seems pointless. . . Farmersinsurance.com, keeps checking
waiting for the end, and StateFarm.com, and Travelers.com, and AIG.com, . . .
changes nothing for me to point out that Farmers Insurance was about to fall to BBB rating.(Only AAA rated insurance companies can write insurance for mortgaged homes.)Only the transfer of $10 billion from the parent company, Zurich Financial, kept the rating.It means nothing to point
out that they have made one bad decision after another. (Previously I reported the $130 million judgment for overtime pay
for 2,000 adjusters in California.)But the
failure to use computers to track the claims inventory in part resulted from their pushing work off onto their adjusters .
. .why invest in computers when you can simply make your staff work an extra
15 hours a week?Free labor drives out technology.See also farming. Building trades.Do you not see this as
another example?Don’t you see . . .
Well. . . it changes nothing.

Al Franken thinks suicide is funny.Today he began his show with a skit of a
character putting a gun to his head and killing himself on air.Franken after
the gun shot asks,“What is this?. . . brain matter?”See? Brain
matter! Oi!That’s funny!What
a funny guy.
staff has also started joking about “bullet proof glass” at their studio.
months ago Imus and Mrs. Jack Swanson, Beck, McGurk, also tried joking about suicide.
I advised them that they were only confusing their audience. (Lecture Notes: 03-07-05 Suicide Club, Lecture Notes: 03-04-05 Landmines of Injustice?)
Imus’ ratings have declined and some have suggested that he has seemed
“distracted”. It is difficult to see how Beck’s ratings could
go much lower.(And his vomiting into a trash can sound effect just does not
seem to be working for him.His ridicule of convenience market clerks hasn’t
the problem is, Al, that most listeners are not in on the “inside joke.” They
don’t get the joke.They don’t think suicide is funny.See?
listeners think suicide is a serious problem:“Specifically, 10.6 out of
every 100,000 persons died by suicide. The total number of suicides was 29,350, or 1.2 percent of all deaths. Suicide deaths
outnumber homicide deaths by five to three. It has been estimated that there may be from 8 to 25 attempted suicides per every
suicide death.” (see NIMH)
don’t try auto accident fatality humor either.Most listeners think that
auto accident deaths also are a serious issue where42,443 are killed each year.(see Auto Accidents(I have previously explained how government control of our highways and roads
has retarded development of electronic traffic controls.Tens of thousands die
needlessly because government bureaucrats have not applied digital electronic technology to traffic controls.))
listeners think murder is a serious problem, however the number of people murdered each year, 16,889, is a little more than
half the number of suicides every year. ( see Murder) So Al, see, murder is less
than half as funny as suicide.(Or is murder twice as funny as suicide?How does one calculate humor?)In other words it is more likely that I will be killed by suicide than an employee
of KQED will be killed by murder.Or put differently, I am at greater risk than
are they.(However because they are VICTIMs and I am just one of their victims
my death will count for less than their fear.)
Senator McCain went on the Imus show and made a reference to this web site he did so because, he also wanted me to know he
took no account of my suicide. (see 4-28-05, Lecture Notes: 5-18-05) Nothing like having been a P.O.W. to give one a sense of entitlement, (“who has suffered more than me?!”), but even McCain
would not think of joking about the plight of Blacks, or Women, or. . . any
of the socially approved victims, the VICTIMS; for, ironically, even though he
is a P.O.W. survivor, suffering due to military service counts for little in
determining VICTIM status with the other contending VICTIMs.
I kill myself in front of the KQED building I will be protesting those who have harassed me these last fifteen years, and
also in part my protest will be of Al Franken and his fellow gas bags in the media.And I will be protesting Senator McCain also.
Al, I do not suppose that you or Weiner, Imus, or Owens, or any of them, and not Senator McCain either, will be changed by
my death.Or rather if you will be changed is unknowable.Probably the same inflated egos which carry you and the others
through your lives will continue to carry you over my bleeding corpse.
all thickly wadded with your ignorance. And therefore you will be protected.Or perhaps you will be driven insane.It
noticed how often Al makes reference to his Jewishness, or his loving wife and children, or to his two houses, i.e. to qualities
of his person or being or status when he should be makinghis arguments.When he should be presenting his facts and reasons in support of his positions he
is describing how he is loved by his wife, or his children, growing up in Minnesota, what he did last weekend, etc.
I realized that in the absence of reason how else are disputes to be resolved but by such qualities?If you have given up on rational argument then what else is to be done, how else to proceed but by comparing
status?Since you have no rational basis upon which to persuade, the best that
can be done is to assure your audience that you are a kind Jew, a loving father and husband, etc. etc.and hope that these qualities will win the audience to your side, due to admiration if not reason.
the bigger VICTIM?Or, and this is apparently less convincing, who has the most
or best things?Ron Owens once concluded an argument with Bernie Ward by pointing
out that he, Ron Owens, had bigger ratings.That sealed the debate.
Bay Area arguments will begin with, “As a Jew . . .”or “As
an African-American Female, I . . .”or “As a Gay, I think . . .”
and so forth, with the debater apparently unaware that nothing logically follows from these opening statements.I have even heard the preamble, “As someone who has meditated every day for the last 30 years . .
.”But again, without reason, how else to proceed?
military officers comparing records to establish seniority, the gay African-American with AIDS must be compared to his opponent
not based on the arguments and facts he can marshal but on the quality of his being, his VICTIM status, and VICTIM ribbons
have even been added to the VICTIM’s lapel in the military manner of campaign ribbons.
now Al Franken is introducing Hertzberg “ ‘the Jew’ from the New Yorker” to his audience in the complete
confidence that his winning manner will propel is show into the next ratings book, which is all that counts, right?Because we are not going to judge Franken or Hertzberg on the merits of their facts and arguments right?This is only partisan radio.If you do
not already agree --- then to hell with you . . . you . . . you NAZI bastard!
not try to reason with them.
years after I first urged the nation to overthrow Saddam Hussein, America finally did so in the SecondGulf War.Do you suppose that Franken and Imus and Weiner and McCain now say, ‘Gee, he
was right about that . . .’?No.
the death of Freda Wright-Sorce do you suppose that her husband, radio personality, Don Geronimo, will reflect on how advanced
electronic traffic controls could have saved his wife’s life?No.
death occurred after a ten car pile up in the opposite direction.The eleventh
car swerved into Freda’s lane.Had the cars been equipped with a twenty
five dollar transponder, connected to the car’s sensors, red lights and
audible warnings could have sounded in all the cars on the road (or even if in only 50% of them, the newer ones):“Warning, Warning, slow down! Slow Down!, There is an accident ahead.”
warning could have been sounded after the first car in the chain reaction accident.The cars would have slowed and Freda Wright-Sorce would be alive.But
none of these things happened because the government bureaucrats who run our roads are not paid to introduce safety electronics on our highways. So every
year hundreds of thousands are injured 43,000 killed, year after year, and nothing is done even though the means are at hand
and have been for 30 years.)
the 9-11 attack did heads role at the FAA?No.Not withstanding the fact that the FAA had been specifically warned of the risk.And then, in March 2004, foreign jet liners were still flying US skies with the cockpit door open.And this was not corrected by the FAA, but rather only a passenger’s complaint made the FAA issue
the order to foreign air lines to close the cockpit door.
now Franken has said to Pete Peterson, “I don’t know what that means.”Mr. Peterson had just suggested we establish “forced savings accounts” as an add on to Social Security.
“Forced Savings Accounts”,this is a mysterious idea to the Harvard graduate Al Franken.He has been
going on the air for over a year, has been putting out his idiotic ideas, (e.g. we will cash in the bonds to pay Social Security),
and he has difficulty with the idea of forced savings accounts.
just goes on and on in big issues and small.$8 trillion national deficit.$35 trillion Medicare deficit. $11 trillion Social Security deficit.No one cares.Make us care.We do not care.We do not care about your suicide either.OK, then I guess that means you win!
home in California requires an income five times higher than the average
income and yet this stark statistic seems to be unknown. (http://www.realestatejournal.com/buysell/mortgages/20050715-simon.html)Everyday I hear on air personalities talking about real estate as if they were barkers for a carnival game.They too, let it be known that they are the proud owners of one or more homes.Their whole real estate history is discussed.But that there
are social, political, may I say moral? issues? goes un-remarked.

Surprised?The Prime Minister is surprised?
that a group of people can manipulate the psychology of a target to cause him to kill himself?Or is it only because they can manipulate him to kill others along with himself which causes the surprise?
the British Prime Minister be surprised?It has been in all the newspapers. Doesn’t he read the newspapers?Stories
about cults.Stories about cons.Stories
about government agencies which carry out programs of deception.(Britain and the USA were themselves targets of Iraq’s deception campaign about its own support for terrorism.)
Prime Minister could probably tell us a story or two.
time one of hate radio’s gas bags releases steam about “Muslims”, speaking about Islam as if it were a hierarchical
religion, as if it were similar to Catholicism, what are they doing but attempting to manipulate their targets otherwise known
as the audience?
course Islam is more like Judaism than Catholicism.Each Imam, like a rabbi,
is free to interpret, teach, preach as he likes.There are branches of thought,
even schools, but no central hierarchy as with Catholicism.
you wanted to create hatred you would not report that this Imam said this, and that Imam did something else, no, you would
say only that Islam preaches hate, and Islam manipulates the psychology of its adherents to murder etc. etc.For example, when the PeoplesTemple group ended in murder and suicide you did not hear the
condemnation of Christianity even though they espoused Christianity and used Christianity as a justification and explanation
of their murders.
even after the Hutus, Catholics, murdered a million Tutsi victims, Protestants, and even now after many Catholic priests have
been convicted of genocide, and incitement to genocide, even now, the “religious”
aspect is not reported, the Catholics and Protestants are not identified, let alone using their religions as a way of explaining
the genocide. Christianity is blameless while daily Imus, Weiner, O’Reilly, and locally Rodgers identify Islam as being
responsible for every murder. The most obscure Imams are cited as if they were
definitive sources while the sermons of the Catholic priests of Rwanda are never even mentioned.
at WacoTexas and the so called Branch Davidians, nothing about the murderous Christians and Christian extremists.
that both my sister and Yvonne (another connection? Or coincidence, or cosmic consciousness?) quoted the Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh

Hinduism was not singled out as a cause. Ironically the local media did refer to the Aum Shinri Kyo cult as a “Buddhist
cult” but later “Buddhist” was mysteriously dropped as an identifier.(There are a lot of powerful Buddhist in the Bay Area.It pays to have

case there was a great deal of randomness.Indeed this is why it is so difficult
to know all that was done to me.Mrs. Jack Swanson had no clear aim other than
to inflict suffering.Don Imus had no program beyond simply “fucking with

that in both Schiavo and Kelo (KELO V. NEW LONDON (04-108) 268 Conn. 1, 843
A. 2d 500, affirmed) hate radio halfwits start out arguing from a pretended moral
absolutism.They present the case, at first, (until challenged), as if it were
their position that life support (feeding tubes) should never be removed, or that private property should never be taken.
upon examination when shown that this claimed “absolute” rule is contradicted by their own conduct, (sometimes
they do agree to discontinue treatment in hopeless cases, they do agree that private property can be taken for a public university,
but not a private one?, for a public utility but not a private one?), and so on, they back off their idiotic claims of “absolutism.”This reliance on absolutism is not conservatism.
is a careful weighing of rights.Unlike liberals we do not automatically assume
the rights of 15 homeowners outweigh the rights of the rest of the community.Should
one hold out block the rail line, or the power line, or the highway (publicly owned or not)?Nor are we stupidly to favor “public” bureaucracies over private institutions.(Of course when confronted in this manner the gas bags say only, but we have to condemn property for a
railroad line or a power line, how else will we be able to build?Not realizing
how empty their argument.They claim necessity not realizing that they have just
contradicted themselves.It turns out that their “absolute” “moral”
position is highly malleable when confronted with “necessity.”)No,
this method of argumentation is not Conservatism it is laziness, stupidity,it

are mislead by the narrow way they perceive the world, bit by bit, idea by idea, they move by degrees further and further
from the path.
they have a word Moslem and a word Christian they separate the people.A half
degree off course.Then they think that Christian killings are one thing, “tribalism,”
or just “foreigners,”or some other explanation, not seeing any of
these excuses as pure rationalizations.More degrees off course.
their alienation from the Moslems leads them further away, into blind hatred.And
then of course there are more rationalizations.Soon they are upon the rocks,
and mystified how they came to such a bad end.

No compensation paid.But
the former mayor, (and now Marin Senator Feinstein), bought up all the multi story buildings she could finance.(Would the owners have sold so low if they too knew that the City of San Francisco would continue to down zone?)
when the Supreme Court rules that the States are allowed,I will repeat that, “allowed”, to judge for themselves what is and what is not a public use,
or public purpose, suddenly there is hysteria.For a hundred years the land was
taken from A and sold to B, the railroads, and not so much as a whimper.Taken
from A and sold to B, the coal companies, nothing.But from A to an office park,
rich, and all media gas bags are rich, bastards the State’s sovereignty is only theoretical.They really do not want to trust their fellow citizens with real sovereignty.They would leave the States as only toy republics, while holding all real powers in the Federal government
where their control is greater, i.e. where their money can purchase control more easily.
dishonesty is here fundamental.They are literally blind to the world.They see it only in narrow little slices of rationalizations.The
CAT scan reveals the brain is gone, literally gone, but they
do not comprehend.Later it is reported that “she was blind.”Wrong!She was not blind.True the part of the brain that processes images was missing, but so was everything else.She was not blind she was gone had been gone for years but they kept her body animated because they can
not see what they are doing.

is all mysterious to them.They find the transportation system agreeable, but
how it was built is unknown, they are inheritors not builders.
layered over this fundamental blindness of these gas bags, dishonesty.There
is the daily dishonesty of their asserting limited egos, their bellies, their wallets.Yes, of course they know about the burglary but if they reported what they know their supervisor, Jack Swanson, would
fire them, or he and his powerful friends who control the media would exert their influence to make sure “you never
work in this industry again.”So they say nothing.
fact, in their minds, has nothing to do with their condemnation of Moslems for their supposed dishonesty . . . that they have
concealed crimes, continue to conceal crimes right through the day of my death, that they are themselves liars and hypocrites
. . . that is . . . is . . . different in their minds.
suspect that the manufactured outrage over the Schiavo and Kelo decisions was just more propaganda serving the interests of
the political operatives who hope to influence the next Supreme Court vacancy.The
mass manipulation of symbols in bad faith for the purpose of gaining state control and for no other purpose.Fascism. And so we end up again at our starting point for

not know me but for a number of years I have been targeted by Don Imus.Whenever
I read how Don Imus has hurt someone else I write to them and offer what information I have about Don Imus in the hopes that
his other victims will benefit from knowledge about my experience.
I invite you to visit my web site, www.NewRuskinCollege.com , where I have described how Imus has harassed and oppressed me for these many years.
began when I inadvertently came to the attention of Don Imus and a number of other figures in the mass media.Starting in 1988 I wrote some letters to the U. S. Senate about the importance of technology in education.(These
letters are available for review at my web site just follow the links to the Math Project Archives and the NewRuskinCollege Project Archives which are located in the Moynihan Memorial Library @NewRuskinCollege.com.)
writing campaign was a success only in the sense that I did manage to attract public notice.Unfortunately not for or in the way I had intended.Rather than focusing
on the use of laser disk technology in education many people, including Don Imus, focused their attention on me.On me as an individual.
not here bore you with the details but is suffices to say that over the following fifteen years, even though I stopped my
letter writing campaign, years ago, these people, including Don Imus, have followed me from place to place, job to job, harassing
me, oppressing me, in short they have driven me to ruin and despair.
I set up my web site in the hopes that they would leave me alone.They have not.
was that by making their actions public people would come forward and testify against them.No one ever came forward.I am all alone.
you good luck with your law suit against Don Imus.
recall how moving, how prophetic Don Imus was in the months leading up to the massacre at Srebrenica?Remember?Day after day one man and his microphone as he used
all his powers of persuasion to get the Clinton administration
to move. And Michael Weiner?Remember
how he rallied the nation?
is because it never happened.Neither of them cared.
seeing Yvonne (I had gone back to seeing her after the Last Letter) and telling her what a disgrace the Clintons were.Recall that at first they had claimed
they could do nothing because they did not want to interfere with the Russian election.“But now the Russian elections have come and gone,” I said, almost shouting, “and still they do nothing!”
was a day after a rocket exploded in a market killing 75 people.
Imus and Michael Weiner did not care about the people of Srebrenica.Surprise!
next ten years these two would harasse me from job to job, place to place.Burglary.Electronic eavesdropping. Vandalism.Sabotage.
Public humiliation. Oppression for me.
for Srebrenica.(Later during the idiotic Kosovo campaign, (Clinton would not allow ground troops so the killing continued for months), Weiner championed
the cause of the killers, the Serbs, such is his hatred for the Moslems.(The
VICTIM rejoiced in the killing of the innocent.(And what is this but another
denial of the Holocaust?)))
Thomson and the Red Comedian?All these creeps who worked so hard to torment
and oppress me?Do you think these Post Liberals at KQED pushed the Clintons to do something about Srebrenica?
did their best to destroy me, but they did not themselves have anything to offer.No
thoughts at all.
to say about the first WorldTradeCenter
to say about the attempted assassination of Mr. Bush.
to say about Srebrenica.Nor would they have anything to say about Kosovo, or
Somalia, or Rwanda, . . . or Iraq . . .
you not believe that they feel morally superior?Of course they do.They let a million die, be hacked to death in Rwanda, just as they let them die in Srebrenica . . . but hey, they are liberals, of course they feel morally
And Weiner?He is a VICTIM it goes without saying that he is morally superior no matter what he
And Imus?Yes of course, the egotist, never a moments doubt because never a moments thought,
never a moment of reflection . . . Imus, Imus, Imus is the only thought in his soulless emptiness.
Ron Owens did support the action in Kosovo, from the air, at 30,000 feet, of course.Many callers called to complain.One caller kept saying “you are
a warmonger, you are a warmonger, you are a warmonger . . .;” this is what passes for discussion of the “issues”
in the Bay Area.They are liberals so they are not expected to argue, reason,
after another round of “you are a warmonger” Owens hung up the phone and said, “What next, the anti-Semites?”See?Ron Owens is a VICTIM.His grand parents were killed in the Holocaust so anyone who disagrees with him is an anti-Semite, or very
of American families lost family members in World War II but they are only victims of the war, they are not VICTIMS in Owens’
or Weiner’s eyes.
people of Srebrenica?I mean the survivors?According to Michael Weiner “only the survivors of the Holocaust can be called survivors.”See?No?Because
only those survivors are VICTIMS.
on the survivors of Srebrenica are still only Moslems they do not count they can not be VICTIMS.
Imus they do not count because they do not summer in the Hamptons, they do not negotiate his next contract, they do not even select the items for page six;they are nobodies.
Weiner, Thomson, the Red Comedian, Ron Owens, and the Post Liberal Bay Area, the egotistical, selfish, . . . these are the
people who have harassed and oppressed me, driven me to my death.
to join the people of Srebrenica, Rwanda, Iraq
who were abandoned to their graves by the Post Liberals. The lefties continue to report the terror strikes in London and Iraq as if they were the result of Mr. Bush’s policy and not the result of their own decades of selfishness and cowardice.
have now been saved from their oppression no thanks to Imus or Weiner or the Post Liberals.
hysteric Weiner and the egotist Imus and the PostLiberalBay Area would have abandoned them too, but they have been saved.(Of course the cowardly and hysterical Imus and Weiner are all for cutting
and running. Cowards!)
people of Iraq have been saved from their oppression no thanks to the
egotists and cowards and hysterics.Good for them.I do not begrudge them their good fortune.God Bless them.

Dear Senator Hatch;
If you are reading this
then I am already dead.
I would guess that you
were not shown this email until after the coroner’s inquest.. . . (continued at the E-Mail Archives, The Out Box, at The Moynihan Memorial Library)
Codicil to the Will.
post a photo of cherry blossoms with a black border.When you see this you will
know I am dead.
if you should investigate my death, and determine that things are as I have alleged,
that you take action against those who have wronged me.
between those who merely commented upon these events, (Rush Limbaugh, Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, George Will, Sam
Donaldson, Chris Matthews, John Roberts, Tim Russert, Al Franken, etc. etc.),
and those who took an active part in instigating the actions against me:Michael
Weiner, Don Imus, Mrs. Jack Swanson, Ron Owens, Michael Krasney, Sedge Thomson, The Red Comedian, (he would want me to use
his name), and all those who worked directly with them at the same stations and networks, Bryan Wilson, Rosie Allen, Dunbar,
Weygand, Rodgers, Baxter, McGurk, McCord, etc., and the management of these villains,
Mr. Jack Swanson, for one, and the others who allowed their licenses to be so misused, to hector and vex, and oppress a man
to his death.
the grave, in the name of justice, in the name of our common humanity, I ask
that if you agree that they have used their broadcasting licenses perfidiously, maliciously, unjustly that you take their
broadcasting licenses away from them.
that you resell the licenses and give the money to a foundation, The Murdoch-Watts Foundation, for the promotion of health
and human decency, justice and wisdom.(To the extent that my death itself may
induce others to choose this path a portion should also be devoted to suicide prevention.)
Public Broadcasting and ABC and Viacom and the others pay for their wrongful conduct, and in justice devote the money raised
to helping humanity.Taking guidance from the writings of Murdoch and Watts I am sure The Foundation’s board of directors will know better than I how the
money should be spent.(I recommend that Jack Kornfield and Yvonne, and George
Will and William F. Buckley, Jr.,jointly decide on the board of directors.)
difficult to know what arguments should be made but my time has now run out.I
beg for justice.
that in life they did not dare contradict me.I have previously offered into
evidence the keywordsrecorded here at this site, but you may also check the
logs of domains:NBC and CNBC have visited.The FCC.Gov has visited.By inference the domains from Parsippany New Jersey can be checked against
GAB Robins where it is headquartered.(Like Farmers, State Farm, CENCAL, Dean
Sodos, Scott Bobro, GAB Robins name appears on the search log.)
Michael Weiner, Don Imus, Mrs. Jack Swanson, Ron Owens, Michael Krasney did not challenge one word they read here though they
have often made covert references.
impudently and cowardly hid behind our unjust and twisted society knowing perfectly well that the rich and powerful are safe
they have not fully considered is that justice might still be done even after my death.They conceitedly thought that upon my death that they would be safe.
them that they are wrong.Show them that justice may still be done.
from the grave for justice.
Colonial Motel Suspect
is a police officer in MillValley who has been asking local children to hit my car as they
the plan is that I will react to the provocation and then he hopes to step in and arrest me for abusing the children.
One question.What if the man in the car gets out and shoots several of the children before shooting
children?How could anyone with an ounce of sanity think this a good idea?
hides near by when the children pass by.Of course he is armed.But why take any risk?
too, there is the question of entrapment.You think the man is suspicious, so
you set up an altercation to try and arrest him.What a plan!Create a potentially dangerous situation with several children then pounce, gun drawn . . . your tax dollars
at work.(Counter Strategy:Strategy?What strategy?I am going to be dead
in a few days.What do I care what the little brats do to the car?Key it for all I care.I am dead already.I do not respond.)
to like to think about all the people I have helped over the last 25 years.I
used to imagine them hearing my name and saying, “Hey,that’s our
insurance adjuster!Remember . . .after
the fire . . .”or“.
. . after the accident . . .”or“. . .remember he drove us down to the motel after the fire. . .”
I worked on the earth movement claim for a former mayor of MillValley.The elderly couple had built a second story on their
hill side home, (all homes in Mill Valley are hill side homes), and they had for a number of years been adding concrete pillars,
steel cables, huge anchor blocks, all in an effort to keep their home from falling down the side of their hill.
are exactly the people that Alan Watts used to criticize.“They build these
geometric grids of streets, all perfectly straight and regular, and they insist on imposing this geometry everywhere, even
here in MillValley where it is very hilly;there is an 800 meter mountain here.But hills are not straight and geometrical,
they are curvy. And things on a hill naturally want to go down the hill.So all
their homes are sliding down the curvy hills.”
But theseare just the kind of peoplewho have
been elected mayor.These are the kind of people who control the power.And their home is sliding off its foundation.I got the assignment because VIP, (former mayor), and because earlier that day the City of Mill Valley had
red tagged the home;meaning that they had to leave at once; an emergency; but
the elderly couple refused to leave.The City Manager asked us to help persuade
them to leave.So I was given the task.
with them and explained the legal situation, (this was after Garvey but I do not remember which Garvey was in effect, (there
were three Garvey decisions from the California Supreme Court, (Mr. Garvey being a U. C. law professor, (of course it is just
this multiplicity of rulings which causes the law to be regarded as unreliable by the layman, including laymen who run insurance

engineering reports.Searched the building records.Took inventory.Wrote and obtained estimates . . .came to know the former mayor and her husband, their children, the contents of their home, the history
of the building and their lives in that building, . . . we established a good working relationship.I helped.
. . . now I am looking at a MillValley policeman crouched down behind some parked cars, watching,
and some children are walking past my car hitting it as they pass . . .and I
do not respond . . . perhaps I should?
Ron Owens was laughing on the radio about people not bathing the same day, my dispatcher called me into the office so he could
smell me . . . that bitch (Owens’ wife?, mistress?) at Gymboree had complained.The night before she had had me waiting at a bar for 45 minutes at , this an ending to what was at that point a 12 hour day,
and I do not think it was an accident.I think she and Ron Owens deliberately
kept me waiting that night;and then worked up the idea to complain to the dispatcher:
‘He smells’. (You know?“Stinking Jew!”(How do you like
that Gentile?How do you like being called . . . etc. etc. (Ah, revenge.)))I did not respond.
idea probably originated in Ron Owens’ mind when a few days before I had stopped going to a local health club after
a homosexual harassed me in the locker room.The previous day Michael Weiner
(a.k.a. Savage) had gone on at some length during his program describing how he had taken the Larkspur ferry and wondered
up to the windows of the health club and looked in at the people working out inside . . . .Then the next day after the incident with the homosexual, (I had said nothing but indicated by my manner that I was
not interested and the man said, “Hi!” and wondered off), but apparently he, or someone watching had reported
back to Ron Owens, for that morning Ron Owens was on the air advising the proper way to deal with homosexuals in a gym locker
room . . . I did not respond.
Michael Weiner stole my notebook from the Colonial Motel, and the San Rafael Police were following the “Colonial Motel
Suspect,” and Michael Weiner was reading from the notebook on his program, and then Mrs. Jack Swanson, and Bryan Wilson
started talking about it, and then all the other on air “personalities” joked about what I had written in my notebook,
. . . and when the three men followed me into the theater, and one of them started walking back and forth in the isle behind
me . . . I did not respond . . .
Frank Blahaat GAB Robins gave meassignments
in Clear Lake and others in San Francisco;gave me twice as many assignments
as the other adjuster, (the gentleman from Fiji, who had no prior experience as a property adjuster), and when the GAB secretary
went through my briefcase, and even when Don Imus started reading my emails that I had sent Frank Blaha . . . I did not respond
. . .
by my enemies . . . when two weeks ago Mengus advertised for the insurance adjusters and ignored my calls . . . I did not
respond . . . But these are the peoplewho win at life . . . Are elected mayor.
. .The rich and powerful . . . they control all the levers . . .
can we do?
the Red Comedian (he would want me to use his name) started making references to my sister and a place near MillValley
called Green Gulch Farm a Buddhist community I went there to investigate.Alan
Watts had had some connection and I was interested in seeing if there was anything left, an echo perhaps.
had a group meeting called the Alan Watts Society or some such.So I went and
listened to a talk by a “street priest” who was accompanied by his associate, both homosexuals.There were two English girls who were visiting the area, and studying Buddhism I suppose. And I made
the company five.
the talk about Alan Watts the “street priest’s”associate,
launched into a long and frankly bizarre monologue filled with innuendo and dull invective, hissing with contempt and only
slightly disguised hate, and ended his performance with something to the effect . . . “Oh, sure, you can be a big businessman
in. . . in . . . insurance, drive a big fancy car, (I drove an old Thunderbird
at that time), think you have everything . . . advise Presidents about war, and, and . . .write a lot of letters to the Senate . . . but then you realize that you are nothing,. . . and you come here to study Buddhism and atone for what you have done.”
was a moment of silence then the English girls burst in to laughter.Then recovering,
one asked, “Are you serious?”
priest” then said later that he was working on “laser disks” with Alan Watts’ lectures.I did respond to him.But he denied knowing anything about
my letters discussing the role of laser disks in education.
the night was foggy and cold.Drizzly.The smell of Eucalyptus.
years later, I one day decided to stop visiting Green Gulch Farm in MillValley.It struck
me all at once that from the very first night I visited the place to that very moment there had been this hissing dishonesty
. . .
is a story about a famous student going to visit his famous teacher.He found
the teacher “surrounded by a thousand angry barking female dogs.”I
told Yvonne that I finally understood the meaning of that phrase after visiting Green Gulch Farm.
the one time abbot said mildly once, that he knew sometimes people misbehave but if one tries to intervene they will just
be worse.Doing by not doing.
kids pass by.The policeman waits a few minutes then leaves.Doing by not doing.
mayor of MillValley?
up suing the insurance company.The company called me to a big downtown law firm
to meet with the company’s attorney and the “senior regional adjuster” from Los Angeles who had taken over the file.They wanted
me to call the former mayor and make a ridiculous low ball offer.Just made up.
the insured and with the attorney and the “senior adjuster” listening in asked if they had obtained the estimates
that we had previously agreed they would?“No” was the answer.“Why not?”“We want
you to make an offer,”was the reply.“But how would you know?” I challenged, “if you do not get an estimate?”The attorney and the “senior regional adjuster”looked
at me like I was crazy.
endedlike that.They would, as
had been agreed before, obtain an estimate.
and the other adjuster, my “superior”, had wanted to take advantage of the good rapport I had established with
the dear old couple and try to settle the claim for a low ball sum.
I learned that they claimed that the other adjuster did make a low ball offer and sued for bad faith. I gave a deposition.
suppose the insurance company thanked me for keeping them out of trouble?Did
that attorney put in a good word for me?I had a long career with the company
after that?Do you think so?
thought this is how we had all agreed to work together?No?
amazes me now is how shameless you all are.Chris Matthews actually wanted people
to know that he knew about all of this.As did Phil Matier at the SF Chronicle
and that bald fat dope with the Sacramento Bee,
and all the people at KQED, KGO, KCBS, KSFO, and now KNEW.They actually
want people to know that they know what Michael Weiner and Don Imus and Ron Owens and Mrs. Jack Swanson and Michael Krasney. . .what they and what all of the rest
did to me over these years . . .
and GAB Robins and Farmers have all visited.
Bobro and Dean Sodos have actually entered their names along with McGurk and Imus. (Now that Imus has been taken off the local
air he has stopped entering his name.)
people to know how dishonest you are.(Like that MillValley
policeman crouched down behind the parked cars. )You are proud of yourselves.And more!You justify yourselves with
all those rationalizations:your victim status, or because I misspelled a word,
or that I am poor, or just that I have been targeted by others, that itself is enough for you.Amazing.
is what amazes me.
“street priest” is proud of his dishonesty too.Street Buddhism.The ‘street’ is his rationalization.
will we say enough is enough?”--- Gene Burns
Gene Burns, very soon.
ps Over a year later, I explained to Yvonne
that I had come to understand the meaning of “a thousand angry barking female dogs”; the following week I attended
a talk at Green Gulch Farm by a young woman.In her talk she quoted “the
old Latin saying:‘Dogs bark at strangers.’”I wondered . . . Yvonne? . . .Yvonne!--- but I wasn’t a ‘stranger.’By that time
I had been going there for over a year . . . but then perhaps I have always been a stranger. . .someone should study this:failure to connect and suicide.
I now see that the MillValley Police already knew that the target of their ‘set up’ would not harm the children.Of course!They had already visited this
site.And now that their attempt has been exposed their following me, the stakeouts,
the attempts at entrapment have all stopped.Who set them up to it?Michael Weiner?Yvonne?Peter Coyote?Jack Swanson?Members
of the San Rafael Police or Marin Sheriff?We will never know.Obviously some very powerful people would like to discredit me.Would
like nothing better than for me to commit my “protest” under a cloud,with
a “criminal record”involving “children” . . . etc.What could be better!“Oh, that
fellow,”they will arrogantly scoff, “He was caught by a MillValley
Policeman!Caught him red handed . . . they did . . . fortunately a Policeman
was just happening by . . .He was attacking children!Can you imagine?What a monster.Deranged!He was unemployed you know. Who will believe a word
he has written? . . .” etc., etc.
of our visitors would have known the truth ---- but would you have told anyone?Even
in death will you still keep your silence?
called back to a second interview.As I left I thought to myself, “The
last interview.”I have been doing a lot of “the last”.
overjoyed to be called back for the second interview.A great burden had been
lifted.There is a future!I have
a chance.I was suspicious, of course, but there had been no sign in the first
interview that I was being targeted again.
to imagine someone out there does not know . . . but there were no . . , there
was no evidence . . .
not get the job.But in the low I realized that this is what makes my death a
protest and not just another suicide.I want to live.I choose to die.I protest . . .
month I reported that the manager had made a witticism when I paid my rent.I
suppose the manager heard about this site from the same people who contacted her to rent the adjoining unit.Michael Weiner would make comments on air about weight lifting just after I had worked out with the weights,
or about people who pace just after I was pacing . . . or. . . well you get
I confronted my sister, ten years ago, about how the things I had said to her were being repeated on KQED, (e.g. “well,
like the man said, ‘The mass media is a hydra headed monster’ ”) ,she assured me that this was just an example of “Cosmic Consciousness”.
Consciousness may not sound like a very plausible explanation but then you should not be so pragmatic, so utilitarian.You may think that the value of a lie is to be found in its believability.Why should that be the standard?

but is it not still a very beautiful thing, this:Cosmic Consciousness?Why can’t we judge a lie on its esthetics?

took my application.This a year later.“Just checking on your . . . . (cough) . . . status . . .”was
his explanation in the voice message.I sent an email, “Thank you, . .
. etc... . . good to hear from you.”
too Mengus has been running ads for “ property insurance adjusters,many
positions, field, telephone, supervisors . . . needed immediately.”But
not for me.They will not return my calls or respond to email.Shut out.

to live.But I will die to protest this.
I finally recovered from the discovery of Yvonne’s betrayal, after those first two weeks, sat and rocked back and forth in my rocking chair, on the back porch, what beautiful sunsets that
year . . . It was spring, the days got longer, blue gray mornings then those sunsets, yellow and pink, reds, then purple to
dark blue . . .
The VICTIMS banquet
Yvonnne’s resume on the internet from a college where she had lectured on Buddhism,and I entered the key words.Background check. I was stunned to see the number of anti-Semitic web sites that it brought up.Her whole life was caricatured there in site after site. The Foreign Jew.And the “new
age” alternative psychology, well even psychology itself was on the enemies
list, for those sites.From foreign born, to studies abroad, group therapy,on and on, for example one key word was Tavistock, . . .amazing.I had heard there were such places on the internet. . . but here they were.
were also a large number of Jewish hate sites.Not anti-Semitic sites but sites
expressing Jewish hatred.One common refrain was something to the effect that
‘we forced your leader to commit suicide and we will force you too . . .’
time I was looking for information on Yvonne’s life and skipped over the hate sites and studied the sites associated
fifteen years later, the ‘we will force you to commit suicide’ seems more relevant.
Bobro at Farmers smirking into the telephone, “Now he probably thinks I work for the J.D.L.” also seems more relevant.
isn’t that there is no anti-Semitism, there is, I have seen it with my own eyes.
there is no racism, or homophobia.
story is not about those wrongs.This story is about a White man who has been
harassed by Blacks.The property manager is Black.This is a story about a Straight who has been harassed by Gays.The
clerk at Kelly is Gay.
is a story about how Scott Bobro was encouraged to harasse the Goy at Farmers.How
Michael Weiner followed me for years, burglarized my room at the Colonial Motel, used electronic eavesdropping equipment,
(placed in a neighboring unit provided by that same property manager), how Ron Owens, and Michael Krasney, used their influence
with the former Mrs. Dr. Dean Edel, among others, to harasse, to oppress . . .
story is about how Don Imus, hearing about all of this, found it all so “amusing” . . . and somehow got Mrs. Jack Swanson to join in the feast . . . what influence? . . .though I do not suppose it took much persuasion . . .“Oh,
I’m vicious,” ---
those other stories better.How the innocent Gay is harassed by the Straights?So the Gay harassing the Straight can even parade under the banner of “justice”
or at least retribution.
Allen prefers the stories about the innocent Blacks tormented by the Whites.But put the other way around . . . well.
. . who cares?(For example, for years the San Francisco Chronicle would not report on the beatings, the arson, the crimes committed against
the Asians in the S. F. Public Housing.The Asians testified but the media refused
to report the racism.(Not reverse racism.It was just racism.The racism of Blacks for Asians.))
Jews harassing and oppressing a Goy?Don’t you see?That was what was so “amusing” to Don Imus.See?The Jew oppressing a Gentile!That is
of this is the story, my story, to which you say, (in the words of Gene Burns), “no” to.
is what I say to you:No!
is suicide but:No!
reached my limit.
someone else now.
Specimen of a showman, whatever his true name.
Yesterday we published a list of common keywords.Today we have:
See the Linds not Lloyd?Someone else trying to get in on the interest?
Of course there is no way of knowing for sure but as was noted earlier who else but Mr. Young would be enteringhis name?
For example Don Imus has stopped checking in every day with his name.Has
there been a sudden drop of interest in Don Imus or has he just gotten bored leaving his name in the “keywords”
Mr. Young presents himself as this jovial fellow, on the air, but then he has to doesn’t he?He is the weatherman.
Did he enjoy being mentioned so many months ago and has been checking in all this time hoping for another mention?
Or perhaps he has found this little
way to harasse a fellow human being, a suicide, and craves the pleasure of cruelty before my death?
Recall that Al Franken learned of this web site and started making references. Why?
A suicide has been harassed for fifteen years, driven into poverty and ruin, and Al Franken thinks it would be good
fun to poke him one or two times before he is dead.Why?
And in Mr. Young’s case he has none of the protective armoring of VICTIM status.He can not excuse himself by claiming he is just “get’n even with the Man,” or Gentiles, or men in
general, or straights . . . whatever class of resentments that can be found to shelter the guilty conscience.
Recall Bill O’Reilly shouting back that we are “just lint . . .no
talent . . . . just lint,”(this
an apparent response to my comment that they could treat us so shamefully because we are not even human beings, we are just
dust to the rich and powerful.(See?Lint
But O’Reilly and Young, like Imus, can not make themselves out to be VICTIMS.
No doubt they have stories they tell themselves to justify themselves.
Or perhaps not.Just plainly admit that they are SOBs?
And what was the “no talent” about?Bill O’Reilly is
a showman.It is all about showmanship, talent. Thoughtfulness?Wisdom?Insight?What are these qualities to a showman? They can not
be seen on camera?Bluster, bravado,
make up your “facts” it maters not to the showman.Just continue
the bellows until the next break.
So it does not really matter if Mr. Young is typing away at his keyboard or not. He
or someone else is busily engaged in one last harassment one last poke. Certainly
it would not surprise if the affable “weather guy” was just another ‘on air personality’ who tries
to conceal a vicious sociopathic personality, consumed with superficial ‘on air talent’ while desperately trying to hide the dirty little secret that, as with Weiner,
Imus, O’Reilly, Franken, the ego has drowned inside them in its own venom
and left only hate and maliciousness.
is still missing in the analysis is the examination of the influence of government
on the bubbles.The Fed is an arm of government but there are many other ways
government has caused the bubble.
consider that the bubble is worst in the Blue States and weakest in the Red States where zoning and buildingcodes are less restrictive.The Blue Cities of Boston, New York, Chicago and San Franciscohave artificially restricted supply and have therefore amplified the bubble.
cities are the very same cities which were identified by the economists Glaeser and Gyourko as being the most restrictive
on the housing market in theirstudy, (see paper no. 1948. Edward L. Glaeser
and Joseph Gyourko The Impact of Zoning on Housing Affordability, link:( http://post.economics.harvard.edu/hier/2002papers/2002list.html )).
more fundamentally what is still missing in the analysis of the bubble is the basic market dynamic.Everyone tries to escape the market.Everyone seeks to place
themselves outside the demands of the competitive market place.
only the powerful are able to extricate themselves.Yes, the rich of course.And the trade unions to the extent that they are able:nowadays this means public employee unions and the few private companies which have large capital investments which
are difficult to relocate overseas and are therefore vulnerable to union action.
it is impossible to gain anything more than a temporary respite from the market.For
the market tells us not what people say they want but what they really want what they really think.
are horrible liars.Not that they do not lie well, they do, but that they lie
all the time and often for no reason at all.They will say they wish you well
but really they would just as soon you burn in hell.
for example know that the cost of housing should be no more than the cost of land, plus construction, plus interest on the
capital.But why settle for such banalities when, by controlling the state, one
can then control the market, and then, exercising such sovereign control one can reap usurious profits,ransoms such as once were paid by shipwrecked princes and sultans, profits such as weighed down Cortez’s
men and sank them to the bottom oflakeTexcoco?
gold is still there at the bottom of the lake, under the foundations of Mexico City, for in the end you can not after all take it with you.
is why bubbles burst.
manipulate, distort, twist the market but in the end the truth will out.
Vidal likes to remind us that the Venetians maintained their corrupt brutal rule of Crete for 800 years.True.But
manipulate the tax laws to favor owners at the expense of renters, (and do it in the name of Liberalism, for sure, claim you
are trying to build a “kinder gentler America”,yeah ,yeah, sham
usurp the People’s sovereign
power and down zone, and down zone, down zone five times in the last three decades, and drive up the price of housing beyond

“Last year the National Bureau of Economic Research published a paper by two Wharton
School economists, Todd Sinai and Joseph Gyourko, who used data for the U.S. 2000 Census and other sources to compute the
subsidy per owner-occupied unit in each state in 1999.
