We all remember well when over 58,000 bodies from the Vietnam War landed on our shores - and how those of us that remember - hated that botched War.

Many of these dead bodies landed in San Francisco - and were processed at the Presidio of San Francisco - and the Letterman Army Medical Center - played an important role - in the post mortem process.

The Vietnam was a botched war and we learned little from that war.

Guerrilla war is not for the faint of heart - and mostly those who understand the terrain well - are best suited for the many surprises - from those that best use hand to hand combat - sleuth operations - that take one by utter surprise with horrendous casualties.

We saw this in Kuwait and Iraq during Desert Storm and Desert Shield - fine sand - like powder jamming equipment and playing havoc - with our operations and action. 

In that war our superior tanks and our stellar United States Air Force and Army and Navy - were no match for Saddam Hussein.

We defeated Sadam Hussein, saved Kuwait - and proceed to go back home - leaving Sadam Hussein - reeling with defeat - we had no mandate from the United Nations - to go to to Baghdad - and finish him off.

However, many soldiers who participated in Desert Shield - Desert Storm - went in healthy and returned suffering from adverse impacts.

Exposed to toxic material and air - known best as the Gulf Syndrome - it took us over 10 years to get some acknowledgement - to help our soldiers.

Our soldiers found - "mustered gas" - other cans of toxic material used in war - all labeled - Made In America. We know this - but we do not know this.

Since I was involved in this war - I know many details - and the more I think about the many soldiers I knew - the more I get flashbacks that do not make me feel good - about that war - the war we named Desert Shield - Desert Storm.

That war lasted fewer than two months - but in that brief period - the consequences borne by our beloved United States soldiers - women and men - was horrendous.

To this day many of them exposed to toxic materials - suffer - and that pain and suffering - know no bounds. They are women and men - who served our Nation - and still to this day - are slow to receive good care and less quality - services.

It was the first time - during Desert Shield and Desert Storm - Reservists went to war in very large numbers.

Our women soldiers played an unique role - with astute logistics and transportation. Often fighting the enemy - when surrounded by the enemy - and doing more than well.

We. further ventured to Afghanistan and that mountain terrain played havoc with our soldiers. 

Add to that the many poppy fields and other fields - where the Afghan enemy - laid in wait - played havoc with our soldiers.

It is not easy getting familiar to the various terrain, climate, difficulties - and the true soldier will tell you that - but, the policy makers mostly - "drab politicians" - know little abut the many difficulties that our soldiers endure.

More their families - when they return from their many tours - mentally, physically, and psychologically adversely - harmed.

Many wounded serious from bombs injuries - it too us ages to re-enforce our Hummers - provide better detecting devices - to prod and find the bombs hidden on roads and by ways.

We learned little from Vietnam, still less from our brief encounter with the enemy in Kuwait.

When we when to Iraq the second time - the enemy was there waiting for us - hardened in Afghanistan and the frontier territories between Afghanistan and Pakistan.

In Iraq our beloved United States soldiers suffered too many injuries - and one has just to visit Walter Reed Hospital - to understand and more to ponder - why do we treat our soldiers - with such disdain.

It took years - as many as 10 years before - we got to the bottom - heads of the Veterans' Administration making promises to do this and that - but with intent - creating "fake schedules".

Fake schdules - that put hundreds if not thousands of innocent veterans - women and men - in harms way.

It saddens me - more makes me very angry - many good women and men - had to put their lives in harms way - for the love of our Nation.

Ten had to wait - "Waiting for Godot" - died - simply because our Nation - FAILED to help them - in due time - failing to provide the best  medical aid - we as a Superpower could have - but did not.

We are a Superpower -  what Superpower  fails its warrior citizens?

Citizens from mostly poor families - who are prodded to go to war - put in harms way.

Come home to the United States - injured - in many cases losing their limbs, an eye, loss of hearing - and the Veterans Administration failing to provide our warriors - with much needed, urgent, and qualitative medical treatment.

I have spoken to many soldiers - and I know what I am talking about.

Our United States soldiers must be given the best treatment - and those in power know that they have failed our soldiers - and must be ashamed of themselves. This is not easy to state - but someone must - and in due time.

At the Presidio of San Francisco we once had two well established medical facilities - the Letterman Army Medical Center (LAMC) - and the Letterman Army Institute of Research (LAIR).

Both these institution have a stellar record having served and cared for our soldiers - during the many past wars.

Often time when visitors - would come to the Presidio and I worked for Sixth U.S. Army and Presidio of San Francisco - I would accompany the tourists to these institutions.

Those that were cared for in these hospitals - the many wounded soldiers - in the course of many years.

Many in the main buildings - others in smaller buildings - always had something special to reveal to me.

Often shedding tears - much like when I accompanied them to the Veterans Cemetery also situated in the middle of the Presidio of San Francisco. Precious moments - that one treasures - all one's life. 

We in San Francisco have forgotten the role played by the Presidio of San Francisco. More about the role played by Letterman Army Medical Center (LAMC) and Letterman Army Institute of Research (LAIR).

 Our politicians those that are now on the SF Board of Supervisor - drab, inept, shallow, and spineless - know little - many of them - nothing at all.

I have mentioned them before - and will not taint this article by mentioning their names.

We do have an active Veterans Hospital in San Francisco- but it is nothing compared to the quality of care that LAMC and LAIR offered.

Added care provided by the doctors and interns from the University of California San Francisco - provide some quality service and medical care.

The many doctors at LAMC knew me.

I got to know - a lot about the Letterman Army Medical Center and the Letterman Army Research Institute - totally forgotten because of - sordid politics in San Francisco.

Closer to home we cared for thousands of soldiers - all these many years and we did well.

Born of War - the Sixth U.S. Army and Presidio of San Francisco - that I served and love - won many battles - and many of them with segregated Japanese United States Citizens - fighting for the United States,

Segregated Blacks fighting for our Nation - the famed all Black Buffalo Soldiers - and more.

Sixth U.S. Army did well in the Pacific Theater - and I have documentaries that I watch - again and again - that always being tears to my eyes. Long live Sixth U.S. Army - that once was headquartered at the Presidio of San Francisco - deactivated in the year 1999.

Our soldiers must always be given the best.

To this day - our Congress has been very slow - our President could have issued an Executive Order - to speed up the care of our soldiers. 

Instead we spend millions - bombing and maintaining war weapons and equipment - and failing to care for our soldiers.

It had to take some deep investigative report to reveal that officials high up - in the Veterans' Administration.

Some of whom are still pandering - were instrumental - in failing to provide medical care on time - that led to the slow and painful death - of our injured and suffering soldiers. More casualties from Iraq and Afghan - wars.

The families of the injured soldiers, their friends, their supporters - have endured a lot.

All the while some politicians have fought hard for our soldiers - not those that pander - unlike those that fill their own political campaign coffers. We have a couple in San Francisco - they proclaim they represent - but their are the scum of the earth.

If we dare put our United States soldiers in harms way - we must provide them and their families with the best.

Also change the mentality associated with the two words Government Issue (GI) - those days are over - and times have drastically, changed.

Our Military Officials at the very top - need to provide the best services - to those that put their lives on the line.

President Barack Hussein Obama once again revealed to us - that we have underestimated ISIS or ISIL.

We with our billions spent on intelligence - underestimated ISSI or ISIL - well, what am I to say.

God Bless America and God Bless our United States Soldiers and those that support them in any way. 

Our United States soldiers - in the Army, Air Force, Navy, Marines - the Special Forces and others too many to name - deserve the best and they all deserve the best - now.

The United States of America is as strong as its people are united and cared for with dignity.

This land belongs to the Native Americans and to the First People we owe - all that we have.

For thousands of years - the First People kept the land, the air, most everything we see today our lakes, rivers, the forest,hills and mountains -  everything we see today - pristine.

Some 300 years ago - some Whites landed on this land - failing to comprehend at that time - that they were not civilized - as they assumed to be.

They were introduced to Turtle Island - now known as America -  they brought to this land - strange ways - it is these strange ways and strange way of living that would lead to the mess we have now.

We as a Nation are beholden to the guests of this land - the Native Americans.

We have NOT been kind to the Native Americans - more, by placing them in seclusion - on vast lands that are not fertile - and we call the land - on which we segregate our First People - in our own sordid way - reservations.

The Great Spirit sees it all.

The time has come for us to open our hearts, our minds, to delve and see within ourselves - if we can resolve the doings - the on going cancer - by restitution.

Our Nation has lost its "moral compass" - make no bones about it.

What we have done to those that cared for this land - is bite the hand that fed us - the trillions of dollars plus - in resources - tarnished by greed.

We killed the Buffalo and heaped hills of flesh - we took the skin and left the flesh to rot. Insulting the First People - and killed them at will - no questions asked.

Up until 1927 you could killed a Native American in California no questions asked. The strangers laid claim - put some stakes on the ground they saw - and became stakeholders.

The ways are not legal - but they became legal - the way of the crooks, the rogues, the thieves, the liars - was endorsed on some paper - tarnished more by some ink - crying to heaven for justice.

They did the same to the Red Woods - just cut down the gigantic trees - cathedrals going up - thorough which you could see crystals - and in the night the stars - what an awesome feeling!

Here is California the thieves were late in reaching to grab what they could gold, redwood trees, salmon, abalone - you name it - if it was there - they grabbed all they could - never thinking in their greed - that some could be left over - for others to enjoy.

We collectively with intent have used greed to foster materialism.

We have lost our soul and more our spirituality.

We have lost our mind - and the wars that we have fostered and gone to waste more trillions - say it all.

One in four children go to bed hungry.

We call ourselves a Superpower - and thinking nothing when we drop bombs - worth millions of dollars.

We have forgotten to respect our Elders - and many Seniors do not have sound health care and less food to eat.

We, in our ignorance - do not care about those we should respect in their Golden years more.

We must respect our Elders and take care of them in their Golden years - more because it the the right thing to do.

Our youth and young adults are our future - more and more we heap debt on them - we tell them to go to college - and stress them with loans - that will take years to pay up.

The price of food, clothes, the simple things to live - are expensive. We have entire families sleeping on the streets of San Francisco.

Our Mayor Edwin Lee, his minions - are in bed with corrupt forces that have amassed great wealth through sleuth and avarice.
So called developers - who have no heart - and when they shell out a little - they must be some ribbon cutting - and bragging on top of roof tops.

Twitter, Salesforce - others - while our teachers under the San Francisco Unified School District are treated with disdain.

When will we dole out a $10,000  check to our teachers who have served more than 10 years - $5,000 when they have served 5 years - when do we give the Principals a huge check to do as they please. Who do you think does the heavy lifting? If not the teachers!

We have a SF Superintendent who is pandering to money - listening to spineless folks like Hydra Mendonza - who has with intent - brought disgrace to quality education.

Hydra talks a good talk - with no action - and more of FLUFF.

In the last five years over 20,000 families with children have left San Francisco - never to return again. What are we doing about this situation at hand?

On another note - worth pondering - we had no business going to Afghanistan and Iraq. But we did.

We had no business going to Libya and now again to Iraq and invade Syria - but we have.

We will pay a price - and that price will be very, very high.

We have thousands of service women and men - who have lost limbs - eye sight and hearing - and we still have not learned - much.

Too make matters worst - we have not treated our Veterans - many dying a slow death - while some administrators - screwed up their medical schedules - forcing them to suffer and eventually die.

We as a Nation have not learned to respect those that lay their lives for this Nation - on foreign lands.

We must not go to war - and invade other Nations - that have not harmed us directly.

When 9/11 took place the majority of the culprits were from Saudi Arabia - we did not go to war with the Saudi - the Wahabis.

We chose to go to Afghanistan and Iraq. 

Such are the follies of our apparent foolishness - in Washington DC - that knows no bounds - and embraces - buffoonery. 

We have forgotten who got us in this mess - it was George Bush Senior.

It did not help us much when Bill Clinton thought he had things under control and fell into the trap - laid for him by the Republicans.

Then we had George W. Bush who took us deeper into this on going mess.

Only for President, Barack Hussein Obama - to sit on the fence - and carry out the policies of the past - saying much and doing less - and listening to the Zionists.

The last four Presidents have NOT served our Nation well - and have slowly brought about great - divisiveness.

Today we have the filthy rich - who have access to more money - easily. 

We have the poor and the middle class is vanishing - and the ranks of the poor - crying to heaven for help - and no one is paying attention.

God sees it all - and those who have a conscience want to say something - but are afraid - but the time has some to unite and speak up and do right - and right the wrong. Now.

The paradox is that the past will lead us to a future - that will bring about a "revolt". 

The next in line to rule this great Nation will be the Republicans.
The signs are on the wall.

Nancy Pelosi and Diane Feinstien the two hags that have been having their way - will continue bark up the wrong tree.

Right now - while they have the opportunity to do right and represent.

Nancy Pelosi and Diane Feinstein - are not "representing" - both are busy raking in millions to fill their own bloody - pockets.
Shame on these two hags.

The Democrats had their chance -  they blew it. Too much talk and very little action. No sound representation at all.

No one can fool all the people - all the time - and the time has come to boot these fools - off the tracks - those that do not have the guts to represent and do right.

Both the House and the Senate will hear the voices - the likes of John McCain and others - taking us down the gutter - into the cesspool of their own creation - the  "Republican Sewage Cesspool".

Our Nation has not paid attention to a past President - a well respected General who warned us about giving too much power - to buffoons - who do not know the meaning of power.

We have a population of about 314,000,000 which is a very large piece of land - there is no doubt that this large land that measures - 3,717,812.8 square miles - suffices to take care of the First People the Native Americans - and those of us who came here - to live among them.

Our Founding Fathers learned a lot of the Six Nations - and if you care to read their writings and the Constitution - one will notice the influence of the Six Nations.

The Iroquois and others who influenced deeply the Founding Fathers.

Democracy was practiced on Turtle Island - much before the White men and women - landed here - without knowing where exactly they had - landed.

That great mistake carries on to this day.

Those that have the abundance of what is available today in America - mistake it for freedom - but in their actions they further make more mistakes - by practicing license.

There is freedom and there is license. Abuse of Freedom is License - if you get my drift.

Connect the dots - you may be able - you may not be able - but try - and give it a chance - represent - and fight for what is right.

It may be difficult, you may have to make sacrifices - time is running out. Make no bones about it. Every voice counts.

 If you do so - you will go to a better place - make sure you have a "moral compass".

Practice humility - care for those that need help and compassion.

It is all about caring - but more about compassion.

Let us begin this dialogue - the few of us - that want the best in very human being - never mind what color they are - we are all one - though we may say - many.

Spirituality is the glue that can keep us - wholesome - and keep us working together in harmony. Aho

And always remember this land belongs to the Native Americans.

Closer to home the Muwekma Ohlone in San Francisco.

God bless America and God Bless you all that care and have compassion.

Care for Mother Earth - care and respect our children - our Elders and do right - because we must foster doing right - to bring about lasting - harmony. Aho.

San Francisco once led the Nation in innovative and leading edge technology and brought some of the best minds to embrace great discoveries and changes for the best.

From the Cable Cars to technology ahead of its time - in recovering minerals - to logging and transportation - from hills far up to - where the logs were felled to the logging mills down thousands of feet below.

In medicine, education, the digital world - here in San Francisco - and the extended Bay Area - we have been innovative - and contributed discoveries to the world at large - to bring about real progress.

Many of these innovations have changed the way - we do business  in San Francisco - in the financial world - but also when it comes to construction - both horizontal and vertical. 

Our engineers were able to bring clean drinking water from the reservoir at Hetch Hetchy - 160 miles away to San Francisco - and use gravity - to accomplish this defeat. There is no doubt that our past engineers, architects, educationists, doctors, construction experts, our railway, our light rail, as I said our cable cars - truly too us near the stars.

We have talent that have created "niche" projects and models - we understand issues - and if need be we can tweak things and improve on them. That is why some of the best minds - come to San Francisco - the land of the Ohlone - more the Muwekma Ohlone.

We are a City that knows how - we are San Francisco - not only a City - but a City and County - and we have earned the right to be the best.

However in recent years - unfortunately we have folks like Jane Kim, Maria Ayerdi-Kaplan and others - who are putting the good name of our City and County in jeopardy.

Prodded by a sugar daddy - these "lollipop panderers" talk the talk but have not been able to walk the walk. Engineers come to me and tell me - how arrogant these mostly women are - all because they think they have some little power - when they none.

This over $4.5 billion project - the Transbay Center - has been rift with problems - owners who have business like John Gasser - others have been intimidated - some of these political whores - think they can get away with murder - in broad daylight. 

Their day and night is coming - and will hit them - faster than the lighting - first you have the lighting and then the thunder - that will wake up all those who are asleep.

When a parcel measuring 50,000 square feet formerly belong to Caltrans was sold for a whopping $3,700 per square foot to build a 1070 foot Salesforce Tower - much was made about this sordid deal.

Situated at 101 Mission - I have fond memories of this area - on my way to work - when I worked at the Presidio of San Francisco for Sixth United States Army and Presidio of San Francisco.

Much is made of this tall building the tallest on the West Coast - but this is not what San Francisco must be know for - the tower of Babel - not in an area prone to liquefaction - and not of a whopping $192 million - to some real estate developers - Boston Properties and Hines.

Recently Boston Properties did not agree with the amendments - and the increase over a great number of years - the premiums once laid down and now changed - in the Mello-Roos model - that is convoluted in nature. Time will tell.

Thieves have always had their way in San Francisco. The stole the land. 18 treaties signed by the United States Government and the Native American tribes - were never, ever ratified. Of course the thieves - will not admit that - they come up with " financial schemes" - Mello-Roos and others - where you pay premium money for the air, space on the upper floors, and other ploys and machinations.

Never mind the land is prone to liquefaction and flooding - that the Big One is close at hand - and tall buildings - are truly not need to deface our skyline.

The tallest building on the West Coast does not give any sane person - any pride - and those pushing for this phallus of a building - may serve the horny whores and sterile political, pimps - but should not be built to the determent of the populace of this City - named after Saint Francis of Assisi.

The recent happenings - leading to the stalling of the Transbay Transit Center -  falls into a unique category - rift with confusion, pandemonium, and utter, stupidity.

San Franciscans and San Francisco does NOT embrace folks who lack sound leadership - and the practical applications of true - transportation - more Regional Transportation and all that - what this Transportation Center - should aspire to be.

The Transbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPT) and its Board has been busy spewing diatribe - with Jane Kim its Chair and Maria Ayerdi-Kaplan patting their behinds - saying one thing and meaning another.

There is nothing fully transparent more with full accountability - in all of their sordid - deliberations.

Early on promises were made by the Federal Government and the State Government - financial promises - that have fallen by the way side. Millions of dollars wasted - and the discussion go on - nonchalant and these folks think they can fool all the people of the time. Sorry - we know what you all that I have mentioned are capable of.

The high speed rail project - has gone through so many changes - that is is baffling at best. No one can keep up with the many ploys and machination.

The many private properties, the many agencies that are not on broad, the many Environmental Impact Studies and Reports - that reveal so much to be addressed - and so little is address - because those leading the charge - are ignorant and with arrogance of the highest order - they are full of it.

A special task force created to deal with the High Speed Rail - that was to have its starting point right here in San Francisco - all the way to San Diego. The many plans that came before these experts did not meet any standards.

The project that began with good intention to have a high speed rail began with a figure closer to some $800 millions and now has reached in the billions - to over $1.9 billion - plus

The Chinese wanted to build this high speed rail - the negotiation are on going - with our Governor wanting to leave some faint legacy, to his name.

Bragging rights that he , the Governor Jerry Brown was instrumental in building this 'much need high speed rail' that has a lot to with the Transbay Center - its many levels of stations - that can facilitate - the movement of the many trains - local, regional, and even National.

Today, this is a conceptual plan - a dream - you wake up and it could be your worst - nightmare.

In short there has been too much talk - but very little deliberation and fortitude.

It does not help with Maria Ayerdi- Kaplan patting her own behind - and that Jane Kim rolling her eyes - and chiding those that do not want to endow the Transbay Center - with money, more money for less accountability and even less transparency.

Anyway you look at it - it is our tax payers money. Nancy Pelosi and some others - have played some role to convince those in Washington DC - that we all need this "high speed rail" and more the Transbay Center - some rail center - much like Penn Station -  and Grand Central Station - on the East Coast.

We are not the East Coast and our innovations have quickly been embraced by those on the East Coast - and in many cases - compromised - we have the patience and more the tenacity - here on the West Coast.

We must not fall prey to the skyscrapers of Manhattan or the rapid changes in the Bronx - and other places - that I saw with my own eyes - all over the five boroughs - I stayed on Long Island - and traveled all over by train - and my car - listening to the many experts - explaining to me the folly - of rapid development and the evil consequences - of blatant greed.

The dumb forces - pretending to represent -  are put there on the Board - anointed by politicians - who have NO clue  -  it become all about pandering and sordid - greed.

When Nancy Pelosi and other like her and of her sordid ilk - attend the ribbon cutting with folks like Jane Kim and others smiling and pandering - on sites that they purport will raise from the ground and serve others.

Each time they utter such thoughts - they are making a mockery - jerks that they are - and not truly  representing our community.

The Transbay Transit Center has had many meetings - and the initial meetings were worth the salt.

Not the ones held in the last 4 years. We see people leaving the Tranbay Joint Powers Authority (TJPT) - others like Maria Ayerdi- Kaplan pandering - saying one thing and delivering another.

The buffoons are all about power, authority and nothing about sound leadership.

Good leaders know the way, show the way, and go the way.

We saw this with the insertion of the high speed rail - and how this concept was practical shot down. People rushing to make decision that were never vetted in the first place. So much so the Courts - has to question - the authority of those - who did not have their finances spelled correctly.

Ordering the TJPA to go back to the drawing board - and warning them not to jump the gun - which they continue to do - thinking they know best what is good for San Francisco.

Even a special body that was set up - to address a viable and sustainable plan - to put a high speed rail project in place - found the many changes, the politicking too much - and disbanded itself.

The Transbay Transit has a Board that meets - and each of their meetings - is more about FLUFF and more FLUFF.

Idiots patting themselves on the back - when we know from sources close to ground zero - that millions are wasted. All tax payers money.

The recent ploys and machinations at City Hall in Room 250 - with the SF Board of Supervisors - and especially Jane Kim and Scott Wiener trying to bluff the tax payers - trying to defy the developers - and pretending that they have some solution - is not flying.

They even had to pay Willie L.Brown Jr. a past Mayor - more a "thug Mayor" of San Francisco - $100,000 to bring the parties together - so that some deal could be worked.

The Mello-Roos model does not work as well as it used to work when the SF Redevelopment Agency - was in place.

The Mello-Roos has been used in many places - and not in every case - has the end result been - successful.

In the case of the Transbay Transit Center - the Joint Board that meets - truly does not have a backbone - it is spineless - but what is apparent for all to see - is the apparent lack of sound - leadership.

Jane Kim is the Chair - the woman does not have a clue about Project Management - less about the convoluted financial models - such as the Mello-Roos concept and its implications involving  the Developers - who were promised one thing and now are told another.

All that is need to stall this project is for one developer to go to Court.

One has to know something about the dire straits of the our present California Court System - and the backlogged cases.

It takes a case years - if it takes 5 years - all that we will see is a big, big hole in the ground - that will remain there for years - with the world wondering - what the hell is happening.

Salesforce and the Boston Developers - other players - who thought they could win and make some money - are now stumped.

The SF Board of Supervisors are novices at this game and more Scott Wiener - a Queer - who thinks he represents this City and more the constituents - be that  - this fact is far - from the truth.

Scott Wiener talks too much - and he does not represent ordinary San Franciscans - we do not stand for someone - that talks and talks and talk - and most of it - diatribe.

It does no help to have other air-heads on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors - the likes of London Breed, Katy Tang and Malia Cohen - who do not understand the fundamental principles of Land Use, less of sound infrastructure, and still less of sound development.

These idiots depend on the City Attorney - other so called experts - who lead this idiots down the wrong path.

Ignorant to the core - these so called Supervisors - who cannot represent any issue worth the salt - because, they are NOT educated on issues.

Right now there is no money - and we have a big hole.

Blatant lies are spewed at the Board meetings held at City Hall by the Transbay Joint Powers Authority.

It is JOKE to watch these folks and more the vague and convoluted statements made - by Maria Ayerdi-Kaplan and Jane Kim. Pathetic.

Billions are at stake in this project - that has promised us a lot - and delivered little in return so far.

First came the spiraling of our economy in the year 2008 and then just as we thought - all was well in 2012, 2013, and 2014 - a stall that has hit everyone in the books.

The open space and park called the "roof top" has been cancelled -  to save money. But, this ploy was used to bluff the tax payer - no one is against open space and roof top garden. But to use it as a ploy a bait - that is low, low blow.

We have Willie L. Brown Jr a former mayor and a well know "thug Mayor" - who has screwed our City before - he promised to put MUNI on track within 100 days - he failed.

He initiated buying some inferior buses - that soon fell apart. He has his evil paws all over the place - and he use his evil crafty ways - to fill his pockets first - he talks the talk but fails to walk the walk.

Willie created Maria Ayerdi-Kaplan and back Jane Kim who end winning the seat in District 6 - this Korean woman from New York who knows less about San Francisco - and even less about our history of  transportation and Quality of Life issues.

Jane Kim is on the Board of Supervisors - but does not know when to introduce her amendments - she has to be told - many times - about some basic rules and regulation. Jane Kim is about herself - fluff and more fluff.

Even the Tenderloin does not respect her - and the time has come to send her packing to the China Town in New York. Much like Scott Wiener - must be sent back to the Bronx where he can roam at will - with his black cloak, beard, banging his head on some drab wailing wall - all he bring is trials and tribulations to San Francisco.

In the interim the Transbay Transit Center is just that - all talk and no walk. Millions pumped down some sordid sink hole - the making of some very greedy and corrupt people in San Francisco - the brainchild of Willie L.Brown Jr.

Time will tell.

Our San Francisco Unified School District teachers and school aides are going on strike - and this is not the first time - this is happening.

Again and again every year - no one - "worth the salt" - cares about the salaries of the teacher - that have stayed stagnant for the longest time ever. What is our Mayor, Ed Lee going to do about this situation. Many are going to join the picket line - and all for a just cause.

Wake up Mr Mayor and the SF Board of Supervisors - you all talk too much - and the time has come to take care of our SF Unified School District - teachers and teacher aides.

Now, time and again I have seen the SF Unified School District Board - brag about this and that - and again the again the parents of the public school school children - keep reminding the SF Unified School Board - that the Board has failed the parents.

The SF Unified School District sending one sibling to one school and another to another school - miles away - traumatizing the parents - who have no control - over this madness.

What has the SF Unified School District done to mitigate this situation - nothing, much. Wake up San Francisco - our families are leaving San Francisco - and soon there will be no children left in numbers - as we had before.

Mayor Ed Lee seems to think that if Salesforce and other private corporation donate some Ipads to the children - all is well.

All is NOT well - fundamentally, we all must understand that we have to invest in our teachers.

We have to invest in good housing, and in our parents to take care of their children. We need youth and young adults to contribute - and we as a Society have to provide them the nurturing, the love, and the fortitude to deliver as good citizens.

As years go by - more divisiveness from the intrusion of the "techies" - wiping our neighborhood characteristics - pooh poohing our values - the SF Board of Supervisors more folks like Scott Wiener, London Breed, Jane Kim, Katy Tang, Malia Cohen and David Chiu - contributing to this exacerbating - situation - adversely impact all of us that life in San Francisco.

If our stupid SF Board of Supervisors - other very corrupt politicians make over $120,000 in salaries - paid by the tax payers - we must agree to invest in our teachers - more.

I understand that the salaries come from the State of California -  to pay our teachers. Every year the teachers have to protest - every year the teachers are given "PINK SLIPS" the SF Unified School District - threatening to fire the teachers.

San Francisco with its $9 billion dollar budget - its growing economy - can do something - to infuse some increase in salaries - for our teachers and those that act as teacher aides. Some of  teacher aides earn as little as $25,000 - and this is not fair.

The SF Unified School Board linked to the SF Unified School District - use the SFGOV TV to force the viewers to listen to their long winded speeches.

Often patting their behinds - and we the people want action - practical action that help the children who go to public schools - and always paying attention to the parents - who nurture the children.

Good parents, hard working parents, parents who make a lot of sacrifices - and play an important role in the formative years of our children, our youth and young adults.

The new Willie L. Brown School did not get all the vetting from the Bayview neighborhood.

Now, for no reason at all - the media and others - and spewing diatribe - that where the school is situated on Silver and Revere Street - that this area is a hot spot - linked to crime. It is not.

The area is in a neighborhood that has maintained its homes - and keeps the streets - clean.

Even though there were a couple of schools before and only one high school now - with children creating havoc sometimes - the neighbors took and take it in stride - and worked things out without the SF Unified School District - offering any help.

Thurgood Marshal High School not long ago - had riots - created by the Principal who did not know what he was doing. Inviting the SF Police Department who sent in their SWAT team - and beat up some students.

We the residents had to fight this case - to bring about some resolution. It took us five long years.

Many meetings before the SF Police Commission. 

The SF Unified School District - though involved in this matter - where many innocent students were adversely impacted - did not give us any qualified support.

Right where the present brand new school named after Willie L.Brown Jr - there was a Police Academy.

While the Academy was there - that neighborhood was safe and is safe now.

It is safe now - with the Silver Soccer and baseball fields, near by - attracting all sorts of decent people - families.

More youth and young adults - to the Silvers Soccer fields. Well known all over San Francisco.

The SF Unified School District Board - that brags a lot - wags their tongue, more - should work hard to meet the parents and provide transportation to and fro - to the brand new Willie L. Brown Jr. - school.

The Willie L. Brown Jr.  foundation and his cronies can pay for this transportation.

The SF Unified School District and its Board in toto - is quick to pander to the former "thug mayor" - Willie L Brown Jr - naming this school - while he is still alive.

Naming a span of the bridge - leading to the East Bay.

 Willie L. Brown Jr. has millions he has amassed - and can contribute some to better the interests - of the parents, the teachers, and of course our San Francisco students.

In the interim - we San Franciscans - must hold a hearing to fully understand the plight of our teachers and those teacher aides - that are not paid well.

Often times the teachers - must dig deep into their own pockets to provide for the students the teach - books and material the students - need.

It is here that Salesforce, the other Corporations who donate and get write offs - can contribute - contribute to the welfare of the teachers - who are at the center of everything and sound education.

Good teachers are a premium - and we must do all in our power - to treat our teachers with dignity - and always be grateful for their sacrifices, hard work and fortitude.

In the interim the SF Unified School District Board - must act more and talk less - more Hydra Mendonza who is all over the place - talking to much.

Never mind she is close to Willie L. Brown Jr. and the present Mayor of San Francisco - Ed Lee.

Always pandering and not serving the best interests of the parents, the children, and for sure San Franciscans.

We pay this woman - who talks too much - does not represent all of San Francisco and less San Franciscans - as some drab adviser to the Mayor, Ed Lee - and all we get is FLUFF.

It is a shame that our teachers must organize themselves to go on strike to force the City and County of San Francisco - and the corrupt SF Unified School Board in toto - who have lost their mind - to offer the teachers some succor.

Just because the SF Unified School District  keeps getting private donations - none of which go held our - hard working teachers - we must not take their word - that all is well. All is not well - just listen to them talking - with little of no action - as their long winded meetings - that go no where.

We have a Superintendent who has FAILED us - and this is a clarion call - to the Superintendent.

Wake up from your long slumber - Mr Superintendent - stop smiling a lot - and work hard to bring about some - order - to this situation adversely impacting the parents and students.

More - where the parents are hurting, the children traumatized, the teachers not paid well - and the SF Unified School District Board - imagines and dreams that  all is well.

It is not. Wake up SF Unified School District - and put your house in order. You have FAILED - all of San Francisco - and ardent, decent, hardworking, ethical - San Franciscans.
