NO ACCOUNTABILITY IN OUR LOCAL LEADERS IN SAN FRANCISCO
It has been some years now that our leaders at City Hall have had NO accountability at all - and all they care is about themselves and how they can climb up the corrupt - political ladder.
We have a population of about 816,000 in San Francisco.
We have less children then we had some years ago. But, for sure we know our dog population - it is over 100,000. Add the cats and the other pets - and they all are treated better then our children - our children especially in the Southeast Sector of San Francisco.
Thousands of decent families have left San Francisco - they just got fed up. Poor schools, lack of safety and very poor health service for those that are poor. Lack of Quality of Life issues - that I have been address and will continue to address - until the buffoons change their ways.
After all we the tax payers pay these folks who say they Represent and lie before they are elected - but, once they are elected - are like snakes and talk with a fork tongue. They call themselves - politicians.
Recently, there have been plans to draw political lines to help some segments of the population easily elected who they want. That is how cheap and convoluted San Franciscans in some areas have become - who are under the spell of the corrupt - politicians.
The queer folks have had their day in Sacramento - at this time we have Mark Leno and Tom Ammiano who is openly queer or gay.
I know Fiona Ma favors the queer population, and I really do not know where Leland Yee stands on this issue - but, being a politician - he will do what he can to accommodate the queer population to get their - votes. Politicians are like that - if you deliver to them votes - the moral, the ethical, standards do not factor in that equation.
San Francisco does not have much land - and what land we have is available in the Southeast Sector of San Francisco.
This land is very contaminated - more with radioactive elements. Recently, some test were done on the Candlestick shoreline, very near Hunters Point Naval Shipyard - and the results declared - the shoreline and the waters - contaminated not only my mercury, lead, but by radioactive materials in very high levels.
Depleted Uranium was first tested at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard - as part of the War Effort. One Atomic bomb left San Francisco and Hunters Point to be dropped on Japan and killed millions of innocent - people.
There are over 1200 toxic hot spots all over San Francisco that need to be cleaned.
It is the responsibility of the City and County of San Francisco to clean these very toxic and dangerous hot spots. The City and County of San Francisco will talk about our City being Green - which is a joke.
Talk about our Carbon Foot print - but this vain talk is cheap and full of hot air.
In the Southeast Sector over 200,000 tones of Methane Gas spews in the air. Mostly from land that was once wet lands, filled with toxic and lose material - the vegetation and other material has been composting - and the end result is foul smelling Methane Gas.
One ton of Methane Gas equals twenty two tons of Carbon Dioxide and this large amount of Carbon Dioxide that impacts the population near by - is known to the San Francisco Supervisors and the District 10 Supervisor - but, they all think this problem will go away - just by NOT doing anything about it.
So much for all the talk that our Carbon Foot Print is note worthy when we do not tell the TRUTH and do not account for all the Carbon Dioxide over 100,000 tons in the Financial District and more from dangerous particulates and other toxic elements - that will take pages to spell out.
Hunters Point and Parcel A is toxic.
Parcel A is the only parcel on Hunters Point where the City and County of San Francisco has jurisdiction - even though it has been turned over to the SF Redevelopment who is turn gave it to Lennar, a Rogue Developer to build homes.
Now, Lennar wants to build 1600 homes on Parcel A that is contaminated. Who would want to buy a home in the middle of Chernobyl? Our City and County of San Francisco knows too much about Lennar but still wants to do business with this Rogue Developer.
We call Lennar a Rogue Developer - because Lennar poisoned our children and continues to play games with the help of most of the SF Board of Supervisors and the past and present Mayors of San Francisco.
Lennar with intent chose to bombard our children and community - with toxic dust, dangerous particulates, Asbestos friables and or course radioactive elements at very dangerous levels.
Anyone that deals with Lennar has BLOOD on their hands.
At this time our children are suffering from severe headaches, bloody eyes, lack of sleep, and so on.
Asthma is prevalent at Hunters Point and the Bayview - two areas very close to Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.
Some of us have been monitoring this area for over 35 years - and prior to that knowing well; the operations that took place at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard - and fully knowing that it was very contaminated.
Thousands of people since the late 1950 were exposed to many dangerous elements and died. Many from being exposed to Asbestos and other from other types of cancer all linked to the operations at Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.
We the astute community want the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard to be cleaned.
We the community and all of San Francisco was the entire area to be cleaned to high standards as voted by eighty seven percent of the people who voted in San Francisco in the year 2000 in a Citywide Ballot Measure - Proposition P.
The Mayors of San Francisco know the will of the people - but, with intent want to fight the will of the people - and not stand for what is right. They say they represent but they do not.
The mostly Black sell outs and the Poverty Pimp Pastors (PPP) are the scourge of the community, all they want is money.
Since when did any church endorse serving mammon and this is done by most of the sixty two plus churches in the Bayview Hunters Point area.
The City and County of San Francisco now wants to fight some of us - who have been posting articles - but, as long as we have the Internet - we will fight; and we will take this fight into the courts and win.
If have to name the scum bags that is the only way the world will know who they are.
