Law suits, trials, the entire judicial system - is not for the faint of heart.

Only those who have time to waste, money to waste - seek the courts to seek some recourse of sorts - and if it begins at City Hall - you can be rest assured - the clowns will be on - and buffoonery will reign - supreme.

The San Francisco Ethics Commission is a JOKE.

You must just read the San Francisco Grand Jury Report - it says it all.

But now - our elected Sheriff; Ross Mirkarimi has been taken to task.

He has been accused of harming his wife with intent - causing bodily harm - playing mind games with his wife - accused of domestic violence - and as his trial goes on the air - the minions from the San Francisco's City Attorney's office - are trying to put their best foot forward - and shoving it in their mouth - deeper.

Two queer SF City Attorney's are leading the charge - on behalf of the Mayor - big, big, big mistake.

These two purport to know about domestic violence, ethics, morality, standards, good governance, the law and all that - purport they can stand tall and stellar. Wrong.

This trial will go on and on - until October, 2012 - and in the interim the elected sheriff put on this 'petty coat trial" - will receive - NO PAY!

All this in San Francisco - the City that portend to be compassionate - more politicians have committed worse crimes - right at City Hall - one of them being - Mayor Gavin Newsom - others too - but Gavin beats them all hands down. No one ever did anything to him? Why? May be because he was a Metrosexual!

The City Attorney and his minions have a pathetic record.

You can judge them by all their suits against; say - Pacific Gas and Electricity - most of the time they lose - and when they lose - the lose hands down.

Millions of dollars - tax payers dollars - down the drain and into the CESSPOOL of the City Attorney's own creation.

You have the City Attorney buffoons throwing stones   - more arrows in the air. Then; you have the recipients - the Ethics Commission - half of whom are queer and illogical - trying to adjudicate.

Common sense and the art of adjudication - and queer illogical and convoluted thinking of sorts - do NOT - go hand in hand.

The few ground rules - do not favor the Mayor - it may not be the Mayor's fault - but for sure it is the City Attorney's fault - in this case.

Listen you do not have to be a rocket scientist.

The City Attorney - Dennis Herrera - last run for Mayor - Dennis the dunce clown - attacked the Mayor - Mayor Ed Lee so bad; that, even Humpty Dumpty - rolled over the wall - and the world heard the thud.

The ground rules in this case - are as convoluted as one would imagine - the ground rules - kind of are tailor made - for the San Francisco BOZOS.

These are another set of clowns - only these idiots - not all of them are - but idiots like Malia Cohen, Scott Wiener, Jane Kim - others - are poised to make some decision - on this case.

They are supposedly poised to understand the situation at hand.

The above three mentioned have no ethics, no standards, no morals, they are the type - what in simple parlance - are called "perverts" that go down - and for a lousy buck - will sell their souls - daily.

You need quality intelligence to judge.

Sound morals and ethics to discern.

The above MFs - have none of these - and more - daily are wheeling and dealing - behind close doors.

The entire meeting before the Ethics Commission - weaned out a large list of witnesses - what stood out - was that for sure - Mayor Ed Lee and elected Sheriff - Ross Mirkarimi - would testify for sure - as if this was a so very difficult?.

The Sheriff's attorneys feel that Mayor Ed Lee should NOT have suspended Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi without pay.

They feel - this sordid actr is totally uncalled for.

But, Mayor Ed Lee followed what the City Attorney told him.

The same City Attorney who did everything to bring Mayor Ed Lee down - during the last Mayoral elections - never mind; Mayor Ed Lee won the last Mayoral elections.

What is so difficult about understanding this case.

The City and County of San Francisco will waste - millions of dollars - and the once who will laugh all the way to the bank - the attorneys, the so called experts, and those that really do not work - but look forward to such ploys and machinations.

Whether it is about setting the standards, choosing the witnesses - following the protocols of law that are deceiving - if any SF City Attorney is in charge - you can expect - pandemonium!

These MFs take their time - going in circles - trying to say something - but, say "nothing" - at all. One side wants experts - who purport to know about - "domestic violence". Oh Yeah!

More domestic violence takes place among the queer population in this City of Sodom and Gomorrah - then any other place in the world. City Hall is full of them - swarming like bees - humming loudly - let's go down!

But, here we have the lead queer attorney for the City in this case - trying to pick on a straight City Sheriff - pretending to talk the talk and forgetting to walk the walk. What the F*** does he know?

A queer attorney - ethics, morals, standards - simply do not go hand in hand. Ask him when is the last time he has been to Church? Or the Synagogue? He will look at you - strange! The same holds good for the Butch!

Anyway you look at it - Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi was an elected official.

Another way of looking at it - he got more votes than did - Mayor Ed Lee - in the same elections.

These are just facts that must be borne in mind.

Yet another way of looking at Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi elections - in his case he did not have the backing of the Machine.

That is the backing of the "thug" former Black Mayor and the minions from the San Francisco Democratic County Central Committee (SFDCCC) - a sordid bunch of morons - Malia Cohen and Scott Wiener are aspiring to be on it - and will - backed by the many "perverts" that are having a - field day.

This F******  hearing - linked to elected Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi will play over months.

Back and forth - hogs jumping and mucking around - while those that pretend to care - watch the " hog fair" - the center ring of the - circus.

There is domestic violence - and "domestic violence"  - but few know the differnce.

How can the SF BOZOS judge this case - when the majority of them are judging a - straight person - and the majority of them are queer and favor being - perverts to the hilt?

How can any good come from such - demeaning folks that have no morals, no standards, no ethics?
How can the judge - when daily they are numbing their - conscience?

Off the bat - it is difficult to suspend anyone without pay - when this rule is broken - as it was in this case -  whoever decided to do this - has created a "cesspool" - and will fall and drown in the "cesspool".

Normally: you suspend someone with pay - then you give her or him an opportunity - bring her or him because some trial, some mediation, hire some facilitator - and when the case is adjudicated - most everything is in place. 

Suspending anyone without pay - opens up a can of worms.

The SF City Attorney's office have attorneys - but these two I keep seeing - one queer woman and the other queer man of a kind - can run for buffoons of the year - and win hands down.

They will lose this case - and fall flat on their dirty - faces. Never mind - if this happens in Room 250 at City Hall - some months - down the line.

900,000 Veterans on Disability - treated as a Liability - by this Nation - Reflect and more ACT - now.

I was listening intently to the Senate Hearing and the head of the Veterans Administration - said it out - loud and clear that 897,566 - disability claims were pending - and more 65% of the claims pending - for more than 125 days.

He went on to say that in recent years the Veterans Department has seen an increase of over 48%.

He warned that with the impending wars in Iraq and Afghanistan - coming to an end - the backlog will grow to 1.2  million claims.

If this happens - the waiting period -  now 125 days could grow to a year or more - as was the case not long ago.

The hearing was disturbing to me - disturbed me and brought memories of Desert Storm and Desert Shield.

I was at the Presidio of San Francisco and as Desert Storm and Desert Shield was coming to an end - we knew that Sixth U.S. Army and Presidio of San Francisco - would be deactivated.

Plans were made for some of us to go to Fort McPherson - but then again we were told those plans were cancelled. The f****** politicians were at it again.

I went to Naval Air Station - on a special mission - and then back at the Presidio of San Francisco - there was an opening and I took it. 

I came back this time working for the National Park Service - an agency so pathetic - that words cannot describe it. I had to put in my years - and so I did - what I could in the interim.

I knew the Presidio like the back of my hand - the National Park Service - had no clue about infrastructure, less building, and less helping the Veterans.

While working for the National Park Service I worked with Colonel Arnie Rossi who once worked - as did I for Sixth Army.

We tried to serve our Veterans - working with Swords to the Plowshares and creating opportunities and housing for our Veterans.

We did a good job - the same model was replicated at Treasure Island and in some parts of San Francisco - years later.

At the Presidio - we converted the former Nursing Quarters by Letterman Army Medical Center (LAMC) into nice living quarters.

Worked some - on the kitchens and gave the best we could offer - under the circumstance to our Veterans.

From time to time I would visit the Veterans - mostly from early wars - but soon we had to deal with Veterans from Desert Shield and Storm.

Reality check set in - it was not long ago - that I had worked on various projects - one of them - preparing ourselves for body bags - up to a 100,000.

Thank God that war - came to an end soon - in about a month. The adverse impacts to our troops - mostly Reservists in large numbers - remain disabled - to this day.

Some say it may be the vaccinations - others exposure to chemicals; that Sadam may - have let lose in the air - God alone knows.

What I know is that I saw some fine soldiers women and men - healthy and smart go to war - and come back with a totally different - disposition.

I could not come to grips with what was happening - and seeing this - made be detest war. I do not accept war - frivolous wars - like the one President George Bush Jr. initiated - Weapons of Mass Destruction!

What has the Awe and Shock led us to?

Who is really going to take care of the millions of soldiers we sent to war - that will come back and we treat them with disdain? Who is really responsible for this mess - Chenny? Geoge Bush? which Defense Secretary?

When President George W. Bush Jr. initiated the Iraq war - I knew and saw clearly - what was happening.

I spoke up and I wrote about it.

More the war in Afghanistan too.

More the war in other parts of the world - we call them skirmishes.

Each of these expeditions - bring casualties, adverse impacts, harm families, loved ones, friends - and leave deep scars on folks like me - that love our soldiers and what our Nation - truly stands for.

Back to the early part of the hearing - the man in charge - Secretary Eric Shinseki - who seemed to be decent - said that with more cuts in his Veterans Department - and with Reduction In Force - an attrition that allows - senior employees and often times - those that have no initiative - that hang around - are assigned a desk - but it does not mean they know - how to do the job.

In few Federal Agencies there is cross training.

You, the lay person may say why?

Well; you can spend all the time asking that question - that is just how the Federal System works.

You often find one person doing one type of job for twenty or thirty years - with no upward mobility. Go figure.

Veterans who are disabled should not have to wait more then a month.

That is 30 days to get some base-line treatment, services, financial help, benefits - not only to the Veterans per se but their families.

This Nation - should NOT send our troops to war - strong, healthy, motivated women and men and then on getting injured, when they are disabled - treat them like Priah Dogs.

The politicians and that includes President Barrack Hussein Obama - knows that he must step up and do something.

The required BILLIONS must be set aside to address the treatment and benefits of our Veterans - their families and those loved ones - connected.

The Republicans must be brought on board on this one - shame on both parties who have failed this Nation on this issue - serving our deserving - Veterans.

Our Veterans who have mental problems are held on bases for hundreds of days - 400 days plus in many cases - this fact does not bode well for our Nation.

The filthy rich - the billionaires talk a good talk - but none of them care to walk the walk.

Warren Buffet could lead the charge - and contribute a billion - so could the owner of FaceBook, Microsoft,  Larry Ellison of Orical - the many Zionist that brought about the fall of our economy - working for JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Citi Bank, Bank of America, Wells Fargo and other large financial institutions - that have NOT learned their lesson.

We know our tax system is broke - with the filthy rich not paying their fair share.

Bottom line - too may Americans - will NOT stand up and less speak up for our Veterans.

They prefer to pander to the politicians - pussyfooting - the parasites, the corrupt politicians - that must be defeated at the polls.

Here in California two hags - Senator Diane Feinstein the eleventh richest and the other hag - Congressperson Nancy Pelosi - the seventh richest - still want to be in office.

What type of legacy are they leaving? Corrupt to the core and fake - with their plastic surgery!

Our Veterans are sleeping in the streets. Facing the inclement weather and dying. A sacrifice to the god of Greed.

What great Nation - lets down their Veterans?

In San Francisco it is the same - many Seniors are Veterans and more disabled.

The SF BOZOS that occupy Room 250 at City Hall - have never served - not with life styles that do not favor having children.

The occupy themselves trying to name ship after Harvey Milk - who hated the Vietnam War and all war - sometimes; I wonder what these imbeciles are thinking?

The President can hop nob from place to place - raking in the millions - for his campaign coffers - he has been to San Francisco - too many times - wasting thousands - Air Force One and security and all that.

Time to fix the Veteran Administration - lessen the time for our Veterans on Disability - speeding their benefits.

Get the Veteran Administration back on track - when it comes to giving help, quality services, on time benefits and mostly sound housing to our beloved - Veterans.

Happy Veterans Day Holiday.


It is 75 years since the Golden Gate Bridge was built - on a spot and on Ohlone Land.

It is always amazing how the "blue eyed devil" -  those that stole the land - always fail to mention this fact.

Much before any blue eyed devil dare re-write history, surrounded by petty politicians; that have no heart, and those that love celebrations without paying attention to history.

Convene on land that they have no idea about - the Ohlone were there - for thousands of years. Give me a break!

The Ohlone preserved the land - we called San Francisco and more surrounding land - for thousands of years. The left it pristine - that is until the "blue eyed devils" - arrived.

All of this land and more was polluted, contaminated, and destroyed - by the blue eyed devil - destroyed in less than two hundred years.

This is a crime - crying to heaven - the Great Spirit - for justice. And justice will come - soon and with a heavy - hand.

The fun fare held some days ago - with Nancy Pelosi and others - praising each other's fanny - throwing arrows in the air.

More will be held today - May 27, 2012 - the entire day - at Crissy Field - and nearer the Golden Gate Bridge - this side of the bridge San Francisco and on the other side - at East Fort Baker.

The woman who I know - who was the emcee at the event where Nancy Pelosi was present - Larry Barr and a few others - mentioned and acknowledged practically everyone - but failed to acknowledge - the First People - the OHLONE.

Even in the choppy waters - it was not uncommon for the Ohlone to cross the estuary from the San Francisco mainland - to visit now Angel Island and what the Spanish named Alcatraz - for the White Bird.

Yerba Buena was named Goat Island - for all the goats that roamed free.

Treasure Island was not there yet - the man made island was built later - in time for the World Fair.

Whites are stupid - never mind if they are politicians - even more stupid. Most have no heart - and for sure Money and Greed - they worship.

Protocol mandates to put things in perspective - but you would not get that from that "hag" - Nancy Pelosi.

From Whites that never fail to fall in the cesspool - lacking protocol and etiquette - while display fake splendor of a kind - forgetting they stole the land - for heaven's sake - give me another - break.

When engineer Joseph B Strauss first attempted to build the single span bridge - you must remember the Army was at the Presidio of San Francisco.

Joseph B. Strauss built and completed the Golden Gate Bridge in 1927 and when completed it cost $27 million. Many San Franciscans - put their homes and other equity - to back the Bond Measure. The Golden Gate Bridge belongs to the people - not to some entities to make money.

As compensation Joseph B. Strauss was give a $1 million bonus and a life long pass to cross the bridge he built. Such were then norms of the day - you can imagine - what they would be today?

I will explain - but let us learn more .....

Before the Bridge was built - the Army had to ferry supplies and horses and men - across - on this side the Presidio - on the other side now - Marin County.

The Buffalo Soldiers for example managed what was called the "Federal Lands" - now Yosemite National Park, Sequoia National Park and other Federal Lands.

When the National Park Service was first established - the National Park Service (NPS) used the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) written by the ALL BLACK - Buffalo Soldiers - who as I said managed all the Federal Lands.

The National Park Service was formed in 1916 and the Buffalo Soldiers were at the Presidio before that - over 450 Buffalo Soldiers lie in peace at the Presidio Cemetery that comes under the jurisdiction of the Veteran Administration.

The mostly; White Crowd was there to celebrate the 75 years of the Golden Gate Bridge - giving kudos to their ilk - but, forgetting truly who owned the land. The others far more noble, the real owners - who were there before them.

The Presidio Trust is a quasi-federal entity. Created by Nancy Pelosi and her minions - for all the wrong reasons.

2013 is the last year the Presidio Trust will be funded by Congress. After that; the Presidio Trust better comprehend - that in all the time it has been there - is has been a RACIST institution.

The single span Golden Gate Bridge is not the best spectacular bridge in the world. At one time it was - just that - because of its single span.

Today, many other bridges look far more spectacular - and in design stand stellar and taller.

The emcee Riley a woman of some fame - her husband too - tried her best - but she failed when it came to history.

History repeats itself - and San Francisco - the city of contemporary Sodom and Gomorrah will fall on its face.

When that time comes - behold this single span will - topple with all its fake - glory.

The Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy - formerly the National Park Association - is the for Profit arm of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

With a slight of hand - it is now poised to make money - with kiosks and other gimmicks - using the Golden Gate Bridge and what is stands for - like a whore.

That is what GREED in all about - the Almighty Dollar.

The Golden Gate Bridge District failed to capture the moment - and in doing so the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy headed by Greg Moore - is poised to rake in the millions - over the years.

Federal Stimulus Money was used to spruce up the area this side of the Golden Gate Bridge - closer to the Presidio of San Francisco.

I worked for Sixth U.S. Army and Presidio of San Francisco - much before the National Park Service was given some authority - thanks to legislation passed by Congressman Philip Burton.

When Congressman Philip Burton passed away - and Sala Burton took his place - and then when with Sala Burton's demise - the present "hag" - former Speaker of the House.

Nancy Pelosi the current Congressperson representing San Francisco - who was toppled by the Republicans - and cannot get over it - talks a good talk but cannot ever - walk a good walk.

Struss the engineer built another bridge by 4th and King - not too spectacular but one that needs mention - an inter-modal bridge - the entire span can be uplifted - to allow a small ship to pass by.

The Golden Gate Bridge is a famous spot - for those committing suicide - why; no one knows.

At the 50th years celebration - thousands of people got on the Golden Gate Bridge - far more than were expected - and flatten the bridge - that was a spectacular feat - though some what risky. I am sure that will not be repeated again.

A kiosk has been built with a "GREEN SCREEN" - even on a foggy day - the tourist can pretend she or he was by the bridge - and get a clear photograph - for some money of course - courtesy the Golden Gate  National Parks Conservancy.

This are the same folks who arrange for night tours of Alcatraz - of course for a buck. Now, collect lease fees - in the millions - from the tour boats that visit Alcatraz - what a Cash Cow.

Alcatraz was built by the Military  and a little history - Buffalo Soldiers were on Alcatraz - including a Buffalo Soldier Prince - a Zulu from South Africa!

The Ohlone are watching the deeds of the blue eyes devil - his and her - ploys and machinations - during this 75th year celebration. 

The Ohlone were here in San Francisco for thousands of years.

There were at the Presidio of San Francisco.

A Shell Mound - stands at Crissy Field - I was instrumental in saving it.

The National Park Service - denied that existence of any First People at Crissy Field by the sordid Lagoon.

Then remains were found - stored in a garage that caught on fire - the truth came out - and the rest is history.

The Superintendent Brian O'Neill - who has since passed away - came to an understanding - and agreed to build a monument by the Marina Gate - once a sign said " Shellmound".

Barbara Jo-Griffin the then Presidio Manager - before the Presidio Trust came in - said " if any remains are found - we will stop the project".

Remains were found and the project was stopped.

For the first time the "blue eyed devil" and his and her minions found out that they were wrong.

They had to swallow their pride and do the RIGHT thing.

We must always remember to respect the indigenous people - in this case the Ohlone.

Everything else is secondary -  the 75 years of the Golden Bridge existence and celebrations - included. 

Nancy Pelosi and others - foolish to the core may jump and scream - for all the wrong reasons - but, always remember you are on Ohlone Land.

Remember you did wrong - and the time has come to do Right. Aho.

Now, put on that bonnet and go do what you blue eyed devil love doing best - having your orgies of a sort.

The 75 years celebration - gives you all who believe in such mundane festivities - to bear it all.

Make sure you do not jump and land in the choppy, cold waters - and while you are there - always remember the Ohlone.

For a fee you can take a tour - do not forget to bring your ID:

The San Francisco Transbay Transit Center project in the pipeline - has been touted to be a visionary transportation and housing project - creating a "Grand Central Station of the West".

This project would serve as a state of the art hub for several regional transportation systems - eleven in all - according to recent reports.

This $4 billion project has been platitudinous.

Embroiled by higher power politics - the public has been kept in the dark. There is NO sunshine.

 Within - the inner circle of corruption - wheeling and dealing - San Franciscans once again - are being taken for a ride.

San Francisco Planning has found this project challenging.

There have been issues about adverse impacts concerning  "shadows" - that have to be adjudicated.

Proposition K passed by San Francisco voters - is now being translated in Greek - and when the explanation is given - it is gibberish.

Again and again the height of the stellar tall building designed by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects - has been questioned. I liked it the first time around - not anymore.

The various platforms to cater to High Speed Rail took a lot of deliberation.

The City and many advocates - were made to pity - one against the other. 

Today it is the question of funding - sound logistics - and providing services to those that want it.

The problem is most do not want it - because the mandates and the Proposition Voted upon - has been thrown to the wind.

The voters mandated that a High Speed Committee would adjudicate the salient and pertinent factors. When the bill exceed the cap - and the Committee was lied to - the entire Committee bailed out.

Governor Jerry Brown may tout he likes High Speed Rail - but that does not matter - at all.

The Governor also admits he has no money - and the Federal Government is looking into someone trying to erase five years of emails - where lies, half-truths, and fake calculations were spread around like a - virus.

The short High Speed rail route from San Francisco to San Jose - today is making progress.

The rest of the project - taking High Speed Rail all the way to Los Angeles and beyond - in up in the air - over the precipice and into the CESSPOOL of their own - creation.

The Joint Transbay Commission meetings held at City Hall are a JOKE.

Complete with the appointment of Supervisor Jane Kim from District 6 as the Chair.

This woman - who has absolutely no idea how major transportation system including high speed works; and for that matter general transportation systems - work.

At all these meetings there is a lot of fluff - each one patting the other - and enjoying the orgies of a kind. This nonsense must stop.

At one time an entity Business Development Incorporated (BDI) was given thousands to do outreach - little if nothing was done.

BDI is history today.

But, not a word about this despicable entity and its sordid actions and past. No accountability of the thousands of dollars lost - all tax payers money.

At the SF Planning Commission - I witnessed the "dog and pony" show - linked to this $4 billion dollar project - the proposed Transbay Transit Center.

A documentary was shown - to side track the real issues at hand.

The documentary took us to a point and came to an abrupt halt - perhaps sending a signal to the authorities that be - to stop bluffing - get your act together.

The Environmental Impact Report - has taken a lot time.

While the SF Planning Department has tried to do its best - you can see the hand of "Big Brother" circumventing the process.

There is NO transparency and for sure no "sound" - accountability. Only two SF Planning Commission speak the "truth" - the rest are beholden to corruption and bribes.

The 2008 economic crash took the Transbay Transit Center authorities by surprise.

The minions working behind the scene on this project - presupposed; Congressperson Nancy Pelosi and her minions - would rake in the millions and that the "evil jar" - would be over-flowing - not so.

Pork barrel projects have come to grinding halt - and truly speaking this project must be "audited" - too many amendments and too much money spent - with any accountability.

In one case over 400% increases - and only one person - spoke up - at the Authority meeting. Pathetic!

This project is like a moving target - no one knows - truly - where it will go - down the drain - or stop some where in the plain - grounded - to be stared at.

This has thwacked the authorities and all of their ravishing plans - ended in the cesspool of their own creation.

The lesson is simple do not pique yourselves pink - and YOU forget who truly owns the land on which your grandiose plans are going no where.

The land belongs to the Ohlone and NOT a single word about them.

The State was stupid to hand over so much prime land - when they could have put a price on it - on at least mandated by long term services in kind. You got a break. Now you are breaking down.

As for the needed money - with all the vague promises from the Federal Government - something will come by - but, not in time.

You must learn NOT to pull your hair - smile while you suffer a lot. That is your destiny.

In the interim the select staff at the Transbay Authority - do not reflect the diversity of the City and County of San Francisco. Arrogant, pompous, and they do not return calls.

Some calls go to a Public Relations entity - that is linked to corruption - and can use City powers to be - to harm individuals and entities. I have dealt with them before.

The idiots have locked themselves with high paying salaries - flagrant health and other benefits - put themselves in the cockpit - complete with a sound safety belt and a parachute - just in case they have to bail out.

It is absolutely nauseating to watch these good for nothing jackasses project themselves as if they know it all - the Turner and Turner - Contract Managers at the fore front - raking in millions.

Hundreds of Local Business Enterprise (LBEs) - other small contractors - have been left out.

No one will beg for these job - not - when we know - you will fall flat on your face. You already have.

The grandiose plans for the up and coming SF  Transit Center - slowing crawling - Transbay Transit Center:

San Francisco is famous for its Commissions and Task Forces.

One of them - just so happens to be - the Health Care Services Master Plan Task Force.

On the surface this Task Force of  - odd folks - gives one a superficial appearance that something worthwhile is being - accomplished.

Dig deeper down - and the bubble is just that - frail and can be burst - in an instant.

The Task Force has no Blue Print and Model that has been vetted.

For some flimsy reason - the SF Planning Department - is on the Task Force.

Not - the experts that know more about Hospital Planning and even less about Health Services in general - some novices - that are there to pander.

I worked at the Presidio of San Francisco and we had a number of Health Institutions.

We had the Letterman Army Medical Center. We also had the Letter Army Institute of Research. 

These two Health Institutions were located by the Lombard Gate. Many doctors and others from the University of California - San Francisco - worked at these two institution and served thousands of patients some military, their families, and others from the community at large. 

For those old timers the Public Hospital - by the 15th Avenue Gate. This hospital catered to the First People, the Native Americans. It also catered to serious infectious diseases.

As with the two health institutions by Lombard Gate - the Public Health Hospital too - were demolished. 

The two Letterman Institutions gave access to many doctors, interns, nurse, and other Research Faculty and students - and I had an opportunity - early on to meet many of these folks and learn a lot.

When the George Lucas Letterman Digital Center got the $5 million lease per year and tore down the two Health Institutions - just like that - two health institutions - that contributed to the legacy of quality of Health Service - vanished from the face of the Earth.

Four other such Health Institutions or Hospitals - were torn down in other parts of San Francisco. I could go into detail - but this article would be too long.

When Mayor Art Agnos, Willie Brown, Gavin Newsom were Mayors - they all knew that our hospitals - more the San Francisco General Hospital - had to meet certain standards - laid down by the State Authorities that monitor such issues.

These Mayors let it go by - until Gavin Newsom in his last years - prodded by the infamous, diabolical Mitch Katz - put up a Bond Measure to seismically upgrade the San Francisco General Hospital.

San Franciscans are generous voting in favor of Bond Measures - always wanting to the best for the tax payers that pay for these bonds. We will not tolerate - lack of accountability and transparency that does not exists - with the SF General Hospital, the SF Health Commission, and the SF Health Environmental Department - headed by Dr. Rajiv Bhatia. Time will tell.

All these past years when the deliberations were being made - a couple of times - may be over ten times the SF General Hospital - received Notice of Violations.

Within the grace period - the SF General Hospital remedied its defects - and got their credentials restored.

Some years ago - the SF General Hospital - during the time of Administrator Mitch Katz - put out a proposal to build a brand new wing of the hospital - linked to the General Hospital. A debate arose where to locate and build the new wing.

A number of us attended these meetings.

When I made known that one of the sites at Mission Bay was prone to liquefaction and flooding. More was contaminated with soil - brought from the high ground by 4th and King and deposited where all of Mission Bay by the UC Campus - where it  is now located - those who heard me were astounded and confounded.

When they later heard more from Tom Ammiano, Espanola Jackson, and others - complete with empirical data - about; how thousands of patients - over the years - from the Bayview, the Mission, South of Market Area - all over the City found public transportation and access to the SF General Hospital easy - it was decided to build the current expansion - right on the location where the SF General Hospital stands today.

This construction is done by Webcor - and is moving at a snail's pace. Money is running out - because Webcor is famous for change orders - after bidding low. 

This Task Force has been conducting meetings for a long time - over a year. 

Those that lead this Health Care Services Master Plan Task Force have been given - marching orders.

Fortunately some of us that understand about Infrastructure, Logistics, Statistics, Demographic Stats, Hospital Delivery Systems, Billing, Hospital Care, Hospital Insurance, United States quality trained doctors and nurses.

A host of other details - that go into the operations of any hospital, location, delivery system, fiscal operations, budget, SF General Hospital over $1.5 billion budget - that is dubious - when line item audits are done - know more than this lack luster - egoistical Health Care Services Master Plan Task Force (HCSMPTF) - that I will refer to as Task Force.

The Laguna Honda episode and the on going fiasco reveals a lot.

Laguna Honda is managed by the SF General Hospital - and does NOT - do a good job.

The SF Grand Jury and other entities have stated the facts about Laguna Honda Hospital - and adjudicated that drastic changes have to be made - for the better.

Patient Care even today - is lacking - and it will take a lot of trust and very hard work to put things back on track.

Egoistical nurses and administrators treating the patients with disdain at Laguna Honda - were routine - now, come changes have been made.

San Franciscans once collected money to build the Poor House - the first name given to Laguna Honda. Today. the old buildings and the new buildings serve the patients - but, not all is well - as I have stated - before.

The Task Force has joined force with some SF Planning Department Staff - that have no clue what they are supposed to do.

The Health Staff on this Task Force - spew hot air. Some of us that know a lot about health issues -  the facts - feel betrayed by such machinations and ploys.

Why is it that we do not have a Toxicologist in this great City and County of San Francisco?

We found this out when Lennar a Rogue Developer - bombard our community in the Bayview Hunters Point Area - with Asbestos structures.

The SF General Hospital and its Environmental Branch - Dr. Rajiv Bhatia (who was hand in glove with Mitch Katz) and Amy Brownell - lied to the community - and did not follow any worthwhile protocol and proven standards linked to Quality of Life issues - and standard health protocols.

Hunters Point Naval Shipyard is very contaminated.

Depleted Uranium was once tested on this location.

One of the atomic bombs that was dropped on Japan - left Hunters Point - to commit that dastardly - act - killing and maiming millions of innocent - Japanese - during World War II.

All over the Bayview we have over 400 toxic hot spots. It is the responsibility of the City and County of San Francisco to clean these sites - abate, mitigate, and make the community whole.

The layperson has no clue - especially those who are young, are not educated - and repeat what to say - by sell outs who want to build a Wellness Center - in a very polluted area.

The sell outs are those paid to say something - repeat like parrots - and truly are a disgrace to the community.

The Task Force has no clue when it comes to pollution, less contamination, and even less Quality of Life issues - linked to Cumulative Impacts that adversely impact a large population - in the Southeast Sector of San Francisco - impacting over 150,000 more on days when they are games played at Candlestick Park and ATT Park and the surrounding areas.

There is NOT one single member - that comprehends the pollution fully on the Task Force. For example that entire last frontier the Southeast Sector - is land fill - once pristine wetlands.

Today, that entire area from Mission Bay all the way to Mid-Way Village and beyond - emits over 200,000 tons of Methane Gas every single year.

One ton of Methane Gas equals twenty two tons of Carbon Dioxide.

The shallow, uneducated on issues - Task Force - can spew hot air - but none have the ability to focus on such critical issues as the Methane Gas and link it to the City's Carbon Footprint.

People in authority lie about the air we breathe as being one of the best - when in reality - it is the worst.

The SF Planning Department not too long ago fired its Zoning Head - Larry Badner.

He was fired because he was distributing pornographic material - during work hours.

Larry was fired and so were a number of Senior Planners - caught wasting their time - conducting nefarious activities. 

Those working for the SF Health System - are not all that they make themselves to believe.

Some one outside the system - who understands Health Care Delivery System, others who understand about Infrastructure and the upgraded requirements to build hospitals, hospital rooms, other mandated requirement are need at the table.

The demographics of San Francisco have changed with Seniors showing a fast growth and making up over 54% of the population. 

This segment of the population is suffering - many do not have insurance - and even those on SSI and Medical - cannot make ends meet.

Most of them get basic health care - but, if they do not have a place to live, live in shelters, live on the streets of San Francisco - get sick and task the Health System - the Task Force must address these issues and more.

The Saint Luke's Hospital once catered to the indigent population from the Bayview and surrounding Southeast Sector, the Mission, South of Market Area and more.

Many pre-natal cases, women especially with especial needs - went to Saint Luke and got the best care. Not so with the take over by California Pacific Medical Center.

Now - California Pacific Medical Center is trying to entice some dubious folks to re-zone over 26 Blocks - designated for Industrial Use.

Re-zone 26 Blocks plus - to that where Health Services can be provided - in an industrial area where the air is contaminated - the Sewage Treatment Plant - millions of vehicles - spewing particulates - the concrete and other entities - spewing mercury and other toxins into the air.

Malia Cohen the District 10 Supervisor initiated this action - to re-one 26 Block plus in and around 3450 Third Street.

This clandestine action is illegal and must be adjudicated by the SF Planning Commission. The matter taken to Court - and those behind this sordid action - jailed. Do not play with the lives of our babies. Especially if you are NOT the marrying kind.
Do not respect marriage - that is man marrying woman - and have biological - children.

The location at 3420 is very contaminated. Once a gas station - the gas tanks were not removed.

The tenants who signed leases, some who own property signed WAVERS - this may not be known - to those that want to build and operate - the Wellness Center planned by Dr Nadine Burke who is not from our community and Malia Cohen - who is not respected by the community at large.

Dr. Burke is purported to have got a grant of $4 million plus - and wants to expand this money to build the Well Center.

The Dr. Burke can build a center -  in a another area that meets all the requirement - by say the Southeast Clinic - by Carroll Street. This ares is less contaminated.

The 3420 location has too many problems and what is more does injustice to Quality of Life issues.

We must have the very best for our children. We must have the very best for our Seniors. No health center must be built on contaminated soil, in an area that has millions of vehicles - spewing dangerous particulates in the air.

What is very, very troubling is how Malia Cohen the District 10 Supervisor - circumvented the laws - and this time around - initiating this fault legislation - to deceive the constituents of the Bayview - she will fall - flat of her face.

She cannot treat the advocates and the community of the Bayview with disdain - conniving with dubious entities - to hoodwink the community - and make money for themselves. This time - this nonsense will not fly.

The few who spoke at the last Task Force held in Room 305 at City Hall at 2 pm on May 24, 2012 - described as best they could about the proposed Wellness Center - proposed to be built at 3450 Third Street.

It is left to the Task Force to first - find out the facts - the fact that over 26 Blocks were rezoned, the issue of who gave the grant money and for what purpose - some $4 million - some say Pacific California Medical Center - to build a satellite Wellness Center.

This community and the advocates confronted Lennar and brought them to their knees.

They can Malia Cohen who is not trusted by the community at large - also, Dr. Nadine Burke - who is an outsider and should respect the community.

Here are some photographs from the Task Force meeting held May 24, 2012:

Some thoughts as and when the Health Care Services Master Plan Task Force was formed - conflict of interest with the SF Planning Commission:
