Some years ago - I chanced and saw this Utube on Algebra and the author of Khan Academy.

I followed some of the lessons - brushed upon my algebra - and forwarded the lessons to a few youth - who loved it very much.

I kept in touch with some - and found that the Khan Academy had done well for itself. Now, famous all over the world and back by Bill Gates and Bank of America and other well know entities and Corporations.

Each one of us have had our education - and those that do best in their education - higher learning - mostly when it pertains to the sciences - have had a good understanding of Algebra.

One of many elements that enlightens the brain - and brings one to love critical thinking and organizing among other critical factors in life. Helps bring about progress in our education and life in general.

Recently, the San Francisco Unified School District - that is mostly all over the place - decided to make major changes - and relegate Algebra to the dumps.

The SF Unified School District Board - they talk too much - and most of them have no sound and through education in the Sciences and Superior Education.

Coming to the Board and sitting on the Board with some drab education - that does not permit anyone to think well.

Formulate solutions, be articulate - it easily betrays where these SF Unified School Board members - come from.

Reveals to us the tax payers of San Francisco - the constituents of San Francisco - given us a better sense of their poor education - empty barrels who ramble about.

Consequently these morons can represent - and are afraid when astute tax payers, teachers, union members, parents, others - tell them to their face - that they are let them - down.

I heard the parents alarmed that their children in middle school - were told that they would not be allowed to take Algebra.

This action taken by the SF Unified School Board - without consulting the parents.

Some changes have been made to this stupid decision - but, how did this action arise in the first place - and why is it the parents are last to know about - what is happen in the classroom more with important - curricula.

At the end of this discussion the Superintendent says not a word about the concerns of the parents.

The Superintendent who has given himself a $60,000 raise - comments on the "yellow tie" of a fellow presenter - who just happened to wear the same tie color - as the Superintendent.

Algebra is key to understanding many issues - and the gateway to sound Mathematics and Science.

It helps one in Physics, Chemistry, the higher sciences and for sure Engineering, Bio-Medical and Computer Sciences - in today's - digital world.

What is on interest to me is encouraging our young girls, young women, young boys, young men, youth, and young adults - to understand the value of Mathematics, Engineering, the Sciences linked to the Digital World. That is the future - our gradual jump from the Information World to the Digital World.

We in San Francisco are close to the place where the Computer was born - even though the Department of Defense had their own technology  - that was not available to the lay person.

I was with the Department of Defense and so had the opportunity to move up - using the tool available - and I am glad I have the best tools today - because of the many years I spent understanding computers.

The old IBM computers with punch cards - to today's computers tied to Main Frames and Servers - external hard drives and so on and so forth.

The old Macs to the IMac of today that allow you to attain so much in editing films, music, spread sheets and what have you - you all get - where I am going to.

The Silicon Valley produced the computers - may be glorified type writers to begin with - but all the same allowing other companies - to better the earlier computers.

Until  - what we have today in Powerful Computers, Main Frames, Servers, and small computers that can fit in our pockets.

The conduits that have copper wires and one of a kind fiber - T3 and what have you - Comcast competing with AT&T - and wireless communication, powerful satellites, space hubs - and cable running for thousands of miles - on our Ocean beds. 

I have a IPhone 6 Plus - had a difficult time crossing over from my Black Berry that performed well.

Now I enjoy my IPhone 6 Plus a lot.

Can send messages, and print documents remote control, measure certain aspects of my health, monitor the miles I walk, the number of steps I climb - and calculate the many algorithms - and it is here that Algebra - says hello to me.

The larger screen and typing is easy with large letters - and easy on the eyes, with better focus, and simply - great and I am so appreciative of these tools and others that I have access to - to deal with the digital world.

With a built is calculator and Aps that can program other sophisticated models - I can do things in my privacy - and if things get complicated - call in the experts and they can take the process to a higher level.

Now, you just have to watch the SF Unified School Board -  and observe their Smithsonian  ways - and when it come to Public Comment - the folks are given one minute.

The chair has an attitude and this will come to haunt her sooner not later - this City is creating a division - a divisiveness when it come to parents and children - and straight families. Poor families and immigrant families - and we are watching you all like a hawk.

That says it all - these folks are afraid of "sunshine" - they are afraid of light.

We need people to shine light where there is abject darkness.

We need to expose the many ploys, machinations, and shenanigans.

Children, youth, young adults - especially girls and young women must be encouraged to enter the digital world with the right tools the right support - and qualified teachers.

Morons cannot some out with solutions - especially those that are afraid to hear from those those that pay their salaries - those who say they want to represent - but are busy massaging their - "egos". 

Seeking opportunities to get into politics - and try to mess our lives - take another course - and get lost - fade into oblivion.

When it comes  to Algebra - it is all there - and even now - I venture to the Khan Academy - on the Internet and enjoy myself.

Even as I do - I do back fifty years plus - thinking to myself what if we had such tools.

That is not to say we did not have good teachers - but the contemporary tools are mind boggling.

The San Francisco Unified School Board is aging - in its thoughts, its actions, but more how they think and articulate - so out of sync with the contemporary world.

Always seeking money from Corporations who take a write off - and who really do not comprehend what Public Education is all about - less they Corporations must consult more the parents and students and less those that pocket the money.

In the past many parents - preferred sending their children to Public Schools no more.

Private schools, charter schools, parochial schools, today provide a better environment - have better teachers - and thus the divide is wider - those who have money and can spend a fortune - and those who are poor and have to opt to send their children to Public Schools - that offer less and cannot offer a sound education.

The teachers treated with disdain, lacking good tools and books - and at the end of the year - pink slips given - only for the "Rainy Day Fund" - that the City and County doles out.

The San Francisco Unified School District come under the jurisdiction of the State of California.

When the SF Unified School Board thinks and believes they know it all - that is the first sign - that they are going down the drain - into the cesspool of their own - creation.

Our Immigrant children, those children that need help.

We must give our needy children the best education to excel.

These are the children, grateful who contribute the best to our Nations - I have seen it happen again and again.

STOP enrolling poor children into so called "Special Education" where little is taught and precious life is wasted. And there is more.

Wake up or face the wrath of the teachers who are paid less - and the parents of the children - who are ignored most of the time.

The Khan Academy:

It is simply mind boggling how a group of so called Commissioners - have dedicated their time - to rubber stamp issues - and they do not know.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission (SCFC) - has NO idea how to conduct themselves - whether it pertains to addressing pertain issues - or just following the legal - process.
Even in the presence of the City Attorney - present.

Yesterday, February 25,2015  at the 1800 Oakdale - better known at the Southeast Community Facility Commission Building.

After the City Attorney had just given the Commissioners -
 an orientation on how Boards and Commission should conduct themselves - they failed five times.

Dr Espanola Jackson who was in the audience - had to point out to the Southeast Community Facility Commission - how to conduct themselves.

Each time Dr Espanola Jackson pointed the miscued Southeast Community Commission - the City Attorney sitting next to the Chair - agreed with Dr Espanola Jackson - each and every time.

Dr Espanola Jackson is 82 years old - recently was admitted to the hospital - and must rest - that is why I accompanied her yesterday - to hear, see, and watch for myself - the shenanigans of the day.

Most ignorant Commissioners - having no idea what they are supposed to do - concerned with FLUFF - with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - using the Commissioners like a dirty rag - nothing less and nothing more.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission has no clue about Robert's Rules, less about the Brown Act - even less how to contact any meeting - as Commissioners - in a Committee - in general these anointed folks are there just to - rubber stamp anything the are ordered to do.

The Southeast Sector has failed to capture all the benefits with the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission and the Water System Improvement Project (WSIP) - totalling some $4.6 Billion - of which $2.6 billion - was the share of the City and County of San Francisco.

Under the pretext that the WSIP was a Regional Program - and no one bothered to cater to the pressing needs of the constituents of San Francisco.

More so those of the Bayview Hunters Point Area. The Southeast Sector of San Francisco is where some of the key Reservoirs are - one for sure that supplies a lot of water to the sites and areas - that we deem important - the Financial District. 

We are now at the end of the  WSIP and we have serious issues at Mountain Tunnel - very near the Hetch Hetchy Resevoir. $50 million is in the pipe line to build a new tunnel and fix the issues linked with Mountain Tunnel. The public has been kept in the dark. 

The additional $50 million - which I say $80 million all told - over and above the $4.6 million that has been expanded. The blind leading the blind.

Irvington Tunnel is another major project where the steel pipes have crumbled - due to the force of water - under ground. The SFPUC nonchalant - says it will fix the problem without any added costs - this is a lie - and no one can fix these problems without spending - millions more.

We have very serious issues at Calavares Reservoir - prone to some severe damage - since the project engineers at the Calavares Reservoir - have technically ignored the fault on which it lies - and the dam or reservoir will - fail - if we have a major Earthquake on the Hayward fault.

If this happen the entire Fremount Area - will be adversely, impacted. The SFPUC looks at this project - as something that it can deal with and fix -  that is far from the TRUTH. The money spent - all tax payers - money.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission is a very corrupt and has wasted millions of dollars  all tax payers, money. You have to know something about the various projects, follow the money.

It is pathetic to see how the better companies or especially sub-contractors are treated. The companies do their work - follow the bid requirements - and are made to sweat for their payments - often receiving their payments - 9 months after the work is complete.

The San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) - is famous for initiating projects and programs - with little or no accountability and transparency.

At the many SFPUC meetings I have attended - too many to count - is it amazing how vast sums of money are discussed - as if this City and County of San Francisco had money to waste. Again and again millions of dollars are wasted - on some project - the change orders and amendments made - are mind boggling.

URS and AECOM - recently AECOM bought URS - both big firms or Primes - that have made millions on change orders. If we ask for an audit - people feel hurt - others started weeping at the SF Public Utilities Commission meeting - steeped in corruption, egoism of the wrong order - they love to pat their behinds - and when questioned on some facts - more projects and programs they have failed - these few SFPUC management - feel violated.

The jobs paid by the tax payers is not your fiefdom - you work for the public - and if you do not want to work hard and be accountable - get the fuck out of the way. You may not like what I say - but I am fed up with your ploys, machinations and shenanigans. Believe me I am fed up. I have all the patience and more - the SFPUC today is a JOKE.

In recent months its poster Local Business Enterprise candidate - that goes by the name of Empire - has failed. A slap on the face of SFPUC and what it deemed was a good choice - show casing a up and coming company - but the opposite is true.

 The fault lies with the SFPUC and those "liars" who put this Black Brother on the podium - and failed to support him. When it came to guiding him - and providing him assistance - nipping some of the irregularities in the bud.

The result all the talk and hot air at the opening of the Contractors Center that is in operation at Executive Park, 5 Thomas Mellon Circle in San Francisco.

We had the Blue Print not the SFPUC - it took us three long years to have the Contractors Center in place - then more and even more hurdles - after five long years - something is happening.

In the interim nothing is done to train individuals for career job - something that should have been is place two years ago. It is all about fluff - having workshops, internships that are created and showcased with the Mayor and others smiling around - nothing concrete that matters - nothing positive that makes the community feel proud.

At that opening that was held at the "Atrium" - with mayor Edwin M. Lee present - all that talk and praise for the Brother - was just hot air -  soon the details - of this failed venture - will have to be released - for all the world to see.

Fingers will be pointed at others - but not at those like Juliet Ellis, other who get salaries as the Assistant General Managers - who are steep with and wallow in their own muck - or egoism.

Bottom line - the SFPUC with intent has chosen to show case certain ventures and projects - and again and again - put hurdles, obstacles, deep trenches - in the way of those attempting - to make a living. The worst hurt the sub-contractor - the better - the more hard working ones.

All of these smaller sub-contractors - have to be overcome - but with no support - facing these hurdles for those handling more than they can chew is over bearing - more when those given the opportunities - are People of Color - in this case a Black.

The Hunters Point Naval Shipyard has not be abated, mitigated, cleaned for those that do not understand what abated and mitigated means. More to residential standard as mandated in the year 2000 -  Proposition P - more to residential standards.

98% of Hunters Point Naval Shipyard is landfill - it was all once a part of the Bay.

The Hunters Point Naval Shipyard is on the Superfund List. Only the worst contaminated sites - are placed on the Superfund List.

Depleted Uranium was first tested on Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.

There is tons of empirical data that the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard and that includes Parcel A  - which is the only parcel conveyed - to the City and County of San Francisco.

Which in turn was turned over to the former SF Redevelopment Agency - who is turn hand it on a platter - to Lennar Urban - a rogue developer. 

The City paid a dollar for this property - Lennar Urban polluted the area in 2004 - bombarding the area with Asbestos Structures. Recently - we had reading of 84,000 Asbestor Strucutures per cubic meter recently - Lennar Urban in the past was fined $515,000 and has not learned its lesson.

The SFPUC early on eagerly help in laying and facilitating the infrastructure - the pipelines and man holes - in a haphazard manner - in charge of these project was Julie LaBonte who has since jumped shipped.

Serpentine Rock was crushed and the area laden with Asbestos Structures - the workers not wearing face masks - and hundreds of them in the years to come - with come down with Mesothelioma. No one has looked into this crime - where knowing what was going to happen - hundreds of workers - were put in harms way.

We have had reading of 84,000 Structures per cubic meter on Parcel A - where even now at this late date - the workers are not wearing safety masks and gowns. This scandal is in the making - and no one worth the salt - is paying attention.

Not the Mayor, not the City Administrator, not the head of our City Health Department, the City Attorney, the District Attorney, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District, the Environmental Division within the Health Department - not even the Federal Bureau of Investigation that has an Environmental Division.

Lennar Urban was fined $515,000 and recently issued a Notice of Violation to stop work - nothing much has changed - and our Mayor Edwin M. Lee, our City Administrator Naomi Kelly, our other so called law enforcement - have not put their best foot forward.

Recently at Candlestick Point Lennar Urban - as I mentioned earlier - was given a Notice of Violation - the de-construction at Candlestick Stadium - has been stopped - until the contamination more contaminating the environment - has been - properly, addressed. In the meantime the 40,50,60 miles per hour wind - are spreading the Asbestos far and wide. Seeing is believing.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission has failed to serve the community - Dr Espanola Jackson constantly reminds the Commission that is primary objective must be to serve the community.

More to focus on education and opportunities that better the constituents of the Bayview Hunters Point area - that has been under served.

In recent years - environmental concerns that the Southeast Community Facility Commission - has failed to address - not educated on issues - more environmental issues in this day and age - sends a wrong signal - we cannot have individual rubber stamping - more because they are NOT educated on issues.

Why are you on the Commission if you cannot represent - holistically - the community? Some of you are there for the money - but that is not what you all are suppose to focus on.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission is busy pandering to so called organizations that are not respected.

We know what is happening - and it has becomes difficult - to expose organizations that brag that they are doing good work - when most of them are on the dole and faking it - and doing nothing at all.

Conflict of interest is not looked by the Commission seriously - and I could initiate an investigation - but, again it would not serve the purpose.

At this stage - when the community is bleeding - and in hemorrhage.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission should not encourage having or going to any meetings on or near Parcel A.

Not any where on the other Parcels B,C,D,E, E2, G, UC I, UC2  - and other recently designated areas - that all come under the jurisdiction of the United States Navy.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission is not the Project Area Committee (PAC).

The PAC has been dissolved - when the Governor of California - Jerry Brown - abolished the former Redevelopment Agency - in San Francisco - the SF Redevelopment Agency.  

The Commission of Infrastructure and Investment - which is part of the Office of the Successor Agency to the SF Redevelopment Agency - has rubber stamped and anointed the Citizens Advisory Committee (CAC) - to the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard.

That CAC - does the bidding of Lennar Urban and nefarious and very corrupt - politicians.

Recently against the wishes of the people - the Southeast Community Facility Commission - signed a Memorandum of Understanding - that Brigette R. LeBlanc announced yesterday, February 25, 2015 - and thinks that the community agrees with this - sordid, action.

We do not not - and we made it clear - but some on the Southeast Community Facility Commission - want to defy us. We the advocates who have been in the trenches of years - much before these good for nothing panders - came on the scene - not to serve the community - but to seek favors and make money.

I noticed the statement - about the recently fake Memorandum that was signed by the Southeast Community Facility Commission and the SFPUC - was not made by the Chair - but always Brigette R LeBlanc thinking she represent the SF Public Utilities Commission - and is the voice on the Southeast Community Facility Commission - she is NOT.

As I said with empirical data and with facts Dr Espanola Jackson and a number of us - tried to convince the Southeast Community Facility Commission - to stop rushing with a Memorandum of Understanding with the SF Public Utilities Commission - a memorandum - that is full of loop holes.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission Building at 1800 Oakdale is the Community's Building.

The Department of Public Works before 1996 was mandated to maintain the building.

The Department of Public Works (DPW) - maintained the building - more when Roger Boas was the City and County of San Francisco's - City Administrator.

In 1996 Willie L. Brown Jr created the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - an Enterprise Department - that since its inception the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) has been a place - to place favorites of the MACHINE.

In 1996 the upkeep of the building at 1800 Oakdale was turned over to the SFPUC - but there was NOT one single meeting - where the community had a say - things were done in a nonchalant manner.

The near by nurseries are charged over $10,000 a month - there are three main entities paying this rent. For a large area - there is but one toilet - no shower rooms - something that some agency - the City's Department of Building Inspection - must inspect this situation and remedy the situation.

The dirt roads leading to the three main nurseries have not been maintained - $30,000 plus is receiving from the nurseries - little put into the Green House as they are popularly called - no one want to address this issues - but that is the sorry, state of affairs.

The present General Manger was the former Assistant General Manager of Infrastructure with a salary of over $300,000. He is now the General Manager - with a even higher salary. All tax payers money.

The present Assistant General Manager of Infrastructure has a special contract and is paid a handsome salary.

Behind these positions - the former Mayor - Willie L. Brown Jr - the entire San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - on the upper Management level is corrupt - and leading the pack one Juliet Ellis - the Assistant General Manager for External Affairs.

Not long ago Juliet Ellis was charged - diverting over $200,000 to a Non-Profit in the East Bay - named Green For All.

The matter was settled by having the money being returned - and on other charges - Juliet Ellis paying a fine - including the double dipping - while receiving a salary from SFPUC - getting remuneration from Green For All - where she served on the Green For All Board before joining the SFPUC as a Commissioner and then as the Assistant General Manager.

Juliet Ellis  with intent appointed personnel to manage the Southeast Community Facility Commission Building at 1800 Oakdale, recently - all newcomers who are at the back and call of Juliet Ellis.

Toye Moses who was managing the Southeast Community Facility Commission Building - is a "figure head".

He has been kept - I suppose until he - retires. At yesterday's meeting he called the new Building Manager - to say a few words that no one understood.

Today we have two more employees from SFPUC aiding Toye Moses - and no one knows - why, do we need so many employees - to do some work - that can be done - by one person.

A few years after 1996 the SFPUC failed to maintain the 1800 Oakdale Building - know as the Southeast Community Facility Commission Building - until two years ago - some attention was paid to this issue.

Only in the last two years - some maintenance worth the salt have been done.

Two years ago - a Phase one rehab was done - the bid was for $1 million. The work was completed with change orders - and the final total was $1.6 million. This one singular project - speaks for itself.

In conclusion the Southeast Community Facility Commission has failed to sincerely represent the community at large.

Has no diverse representation - the Latino community, the Samoan community - fresh faces must be on the Commission.

Do not bring back the "sell outs" from the past.

Today thank God we have Dr Espanola Jackson and Shirley Jones - who helped formed the Southeast Community Facility Commission Building - and were the Founding Commissioners.

As I mentioned before the main purpose - that the building at 1880 Oakdale - known as the Southeast Community Facility Commission building - was to conduct classes to better offer opportunities to further one's education - to uplift the community. This is not happening - other nefarious entities - have invaded the 1800 Oakdale complex - and changed the order of the day.

We once boasted a School for Catering, a School for Nurses, a course in tailoring and other such crafts, General Education Diploma, Computer Repairs, and the list goes on and on.

All of the above has been dismantled over the years - the good that was established with hard work - undone - to make way for the crooks and corrupt entities to control the entire Facility.

An investigation must be done on Veronica Hunnicutt who rented space at 1800 Oakdale and pocketed the money. If this is not disgusting - immoral, unethical - I do not know what is.

Now, Veronica Hunnicutt is the head of the Citizen Advisory Committee at the Shipyard - she does not live in District 10 - comes to District 10 to conduct her nefarious activities - and is always back Lennar Urban - on whose payroll she has been for years.

Now plans are afoot to build a Campus at 1800 Oakdale - what campus - we do not know?

The plans are a foot with Phase II - to spend as much as $30 million dollars. Where is this money coming from? Who is in charge of the project? Who will build this Campus? Why no meaningful dialog with the community?

Other entities have been brought in more with the recently signed Memorandum - used as a "crux" - these ploys and machinations will fail.

You who are backing these so called Non-Profits that are not respecting by the community - these corrupt entities are used by SFPUC to further - their own agenda and  shenanigans.

Unfortunately those who are behind these nefarious activities are Black - they would NOT be ashamed - if their names were revealed.

They have no reason to reform themselves - they have sold their - souls to the devil. They should be ashamed of themselves.

No Commission can function without being educated on issues.

No Commission can function without having sound leadership.

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

This Southeast Community Facility Commission will be remembered for all its times in operation - more in recent times - as having conducted itself as a Commission that rubber stamps - more, what the dubious management at SFPUC and other corrupt politicians - tells them to do.

The Southeast Community Facility Commission does not give a rat's ass - for the community.

You are all put on notice. Believe me you are - I did not want to attend yesterday's Commission meeting and the Open House which was a charade.

Offering the public some cheap finger licking snacks - while the Commissioners who must serve the people - are offered a superior more expensive - dinner of sorts.

You serve the people and you must serve the people with the best information and education - at this time you are ignorant - and simply cannot attain the goals.

More, serve the best interests of the community at large - the Latinos, the Samoans, the Asians that matter, the Blacks that matter and are dwindling.

The long time residential Whites, the even longer Native Americans  - others who have NO clue what is happening at the Southeast Community Facility Commission meetings and sub committee meetings held at 1800 Oakdale. Aho.

It is always interesting to hear the Mayor talk from both sides of his mouth.

Mayor Edwin M. Lee when asked recently what is his top priority - he said - transportation.

May be it should be housing, education, hospitals, childcare, safety and then transportation.

we can take a tour and see how - transportation works in the Southeast corridor of San Francisco.

That is before we take a tour of the entire San Francisco - which may be too over whelming for many. We can keep that for later.

Let us take the area known as the Southeast Sector - you have the T-Third Light rail - built from 4th and King to middle of no where - Visitation Valley.

Where the T-Third Light Rail stops - as I said - in the middle of nowhere.

Makes no sense and they spent over $800 million - the traffic lights do not work - and the software is not compatible - they say - they are working on it - all these many years since 2002.

Anyone with common sense - would have completed that line all the way to Balboa Station - going southwest - more towards City College.

If this was done - people could take the T-Third or whatever the new name designated for that line - would be - and travel all the way to downtown - Francisco.

That Light Rail  would pass through Excelsior, Geneva closer to Daly City, Visitation Valley, Bayview, Dog Patch, Mission Bay - all the way to 4th and King - to downtown - San Francisco. 

Makes sense right - not to our City planners.

They love doing things ass backwards - and take pride it making a fool of themselves.

If the T-Third went as far as Balboa - the entire transportation system would offer those that take Public Transportation - many avenues - they would take the Light Rail and reach their destination - faster.

The transportation to the Hunters Point Area is a joke - closer to the Hunters Point Naval Shipyard - and it has been like this - for years.

It is even worse going to Candlestick Point - it does not exist! 

The MUNI 44, the MUNI 23 - the only two lines that most people use take you to Hunters Point - one to Oakdale, really - that is the MUNI 23.

You have to wait for these buses MUNI 23 and 44 - and see how long they take to arrive - and what type of service they offer - seeing is believing.

The other two lines MUNI 54 and 19 Polk are even worse - you can wait for an hour - and sometimes more - you can huff and puff - and no one bothers - to do something - positive.

20,000 housing units are planned on land prone to severe liquefaction and flooding - around Hunters Point and Candlestick Point.

Most of the land around Hunters Point and Candlestick Point - are 98% poor landfill - and more contaminated.

Hunters Point in on the Superfund list - only the worst contaminated sites are put on the Superfund list.

Here is the paradox - the United States Navy polluted the land - but our City does not want the U.S. Navy to do the clean up - with some standards. I think that is absolutely - dead, wrong.

Let us simply what Proposition P mandated - that the entire Hunters Point Naval Shipyard be clean up to "residential" - standards.

At this moment - arrangement are made to swoop land - where the former garbage dump use to be - now, we call it a State Park - the first urban State Park in San Francisco.

The new plan calls for construction on this former dump site - and in exchange where Parcel E and E2 is - the most contaminate sites on Hunters Point - some Park - green grass - open space - the plans the White men comes with - is baffling - in his quest for "greed" - he could not care less about health, safety - and even less for Quality of Life issues.

On Hunters Point the land is contaminated with high levels of radioactive elements. Depleted Uranium was first tested on this site in the early 1950s - as part of the World War II - efforts.

This City and County of San Francisco - want to accommodate people - more on land that is contaminated - and does not give a second - thought.

Thugs raking in million using EB-5 visas to entice innocent people - to buy homes on Hunters Point - more Parcel A - which comes under the jurisdiction - of a rogue developer - Lennar Urban.

It cost $500,00 just for the visa - and more to buy a contaminated home - all the while the "thug" behind this venture - are laughing to the bank.

Is this what San Francisco is all about?

More since all this land belongs to the Ohlone - the Muwekma Ohlone - and no Ohlone would approve of such sordid - deeds.

All this done with intent - to adversely impact their health and impede Quality of Life issues - lying trying to entice these immigrants - from Mainland China.

The land which one see may be waterfront property - waterfront right - contaminated right - should people be living there - NO.

Plans are afoot to build educational facilities - when pressed further - they say they - " they do not know - what curricula".

All the same - no one should mix contaminated sites and education - that is a bad mix.

In San Francisco - where are all the Environmentalist - who must speak up - few do? 

Where is SPUR the Sierra Club and all those who say they know and comprehend - Quality of Life issues?

They are no where to be found - and hereby encourage rogue developers - to adversely impact life - by not taking a stand.

Right now we do not have sound transportation for about 10,000 people on that transportation corridor - the Southeast Sector - as if call it.

We have NO transportation worth the salt - for 20,000 people going to live at Candlestick Point.

There is talk about the Causeway - the plan has been discussed since 2002 and before - but who will build it.

Plans are afoot about a Light Rail - who will build it going all the way to Hunters Point?

There is a lot of talk - and very little walk.

Mayor Edwin M. Lee talks about infrastructure - and some of us have been fighting to have our own digital infrastructure - like some progressive - Cities have.

At the Presidio some of us - put in a T-3 fiber line for sound communication - way back in the year 2001.

And at the same time - at the Presidio - a State of the Art Communication Center and a Water Treatment Plant.

We worked with Lucent Technologies and Motorola and created a State of the Art Communication Center. All this way back in 2000.

Here is our City and County of San Francisco - we could have laid our own infrastructure. We have not. We did not have a Central Communication Center when the Big One struck in 1989.

Today, in the year 2015 our Communication still has flaws - and we kick ourselves to believe that all is well. The Dispatchers treated with disdain - and the leaders - talk from both sides of their mouth.

Stalwarts like Tom Ammiano had the idea - about the City and County of San Francisco - owing our own infrastructure - but the others who are talking now - were fast asleep at the wheel.

We have with intent - permitted Pacific Gas and Electric, Comcast, AT&T and who have you - to have full access - to laying down cables and other amenities - to rake in millions.

We the City and County of San Francisco - are doing nothing on land that we say is ours - handing our land to others - preferring to spewing - hot air - adversely impacts the constituents of San Francisco. 

The constituents - the tax payers pay a lot for services be it for AT&T, Comcast, other carriers - who all are laughing to the bank.

Our City and County of San Francisco - Room 200 which is the Mayor office - simply does not get it.

How can we use the "digital world" as best we can - when we failed again and again - when we were in the informational world and cannot make a leap with confidence - into the digital world?

Many of City Departments - not along ago - could not access the more contemporary computer software with their antiquated Personal Computers at work - forcing many to bring in their own lap tops.

Even the SF Police Department could not receive reports from the Federal Bureau of Investigation - not with software that was not compatible to the computers - using Windows 95. 

This is not a joke - I saw it for myself some years ago.

In fact some years ago - our Law Enforcement did not have access to the Internet - not all the 10 Police Station had Internet for use by the SF Police Department force.

Since Chief Gregory Suhr knows that Communication is necessary - he has made it his priority - but we still have miles to go.

At the SF Police Department - until a few years ago - all the incident reports - were done manually.

Today, it is still difficult to run queries - going back 10 years - 15 years - 20 years.

Silicon Valley is close by - we have the techies using our restaurants, enjoying the culture that we have created - we could use that talent - but, we choose to dole out millions to consultants - who cannot perform and when they perform - they laid stake to the the software - complete with licenses that make no sense.

Enjoying our weather - and testing the patience of the people of San Francisco - the techies and the tech companies - are using the hospitality of San Francisco and the constituents of San Francisco.

The future is the "digital world" - in San Francisco we are still making a gradual transition - from the informational world.

You have to be educated on issues -  and have the superior skills - to innovate and make good things - happen.

We prefer creating inept Task Forces - our Commissions on this and that - idiots who talk and have no clue what they are talking about.

The SF Planning Department and the Department of Building Inspection is still working on a "model" - to sync information - you have the blind leading the blind.

We talk about green building - the highest ratings "Platinum" and so on and so forth - it is just talk.

Perhaps someone should visit Spain to Gain - some experience.

In the interim the Academy of Art University has bought hundreds of Rental Units and turned them into dormitories.

Depriving hundreds if not thousands of rental units - with rent - control. 

Thousands of homes in the Avenues and elsewhere built on sandy ground - are prone to liquefaction and flooding.

It is critical that we have in our planning - at least one area - to show case - that meets the highest standards acceptable to what the experts have laid down - when it comes to the "digital" world - and all this costs - money.

I know something about our infrastructure and the empirical data shows - we are way behind - be it our sewer pipes over 90 years old, our clean drinking water pipes - over 90 years, old.

Our roads - full of pot holes - we talk a lot - and make the repairs of our roads difficult - with huge construction projects.

The constant digging by Utility Companies - who do not give a rat's ass.

We who know see the lack of planning, the lack of vision - the lack of initiative - we can talk about it - we can bitch about it - but who has the balls to do something about it? No one.

The SF Public Utilities Commission laid a plan to replace the Sewer Pipes - they have the money - the peoples' Bond Money - but they have never met their goals - they state it  - but they cannot meet it.

On the Water System Improvement Project - we the people want to know what is happen at Mountain Tunnel - the Irvington Tunnel, the Digestors - a $2.6 Billion project - that is going at snail pace - and little is no discussion with the stake holders.

All this infrastructure for which the tax payers have paid - the bond money has not been spent wisely - AECOM, URS, JACOBS others - have raked in the millions - and are laughing at the way - we the City and County of San Francisco do business.

Change orders are the orders of the day - and these orders and amendments - go through - with point persons - getting bribes and pretending they know something - when they know nothing.

The corruption when it comes to our infrastructure is a JOKE - with point persons hired - who do the bidding of the MACHINE.

So called Community Partners that did NOT participate in all the meetings and work shops - at the SF Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC).

Other "thugs" who are GREEDY - with connections to Dwayne Jones and Juliet Ellis - others -  are on the take - are raking in the profits - given grants and have nothing - "concrete" to show - for the grants - in the millions.

Time will tell - we are watching you all like a - hawk. Aho.

The San Francisco Mayor's Office is " all fluff ".

The Mayor's Office and its many Departments  - have NO viable plan that is sustainable - when it comes to the constituents of San Francisco - some 820,000 - with thousands of families with children - leaving the City and County of San Francisco.

No decent City should turn its back on its constituents and that is what is happening today. Droves of innocent San Franciscans - are forced to leave their homes - many owners of homes - others - renters.

The paradox is the Mayor Office of San Francisco has been nonchalant - with press conference full of "fluff" - an increase of homeless folks sleeping on the streets of San Francisco.

Most adversely impacted - our infants, our children, our youth and young adults from the Southeast Sector of San Francisco.

Recently when some announcement was made about giving people some roof over their head - over 10,000 people applied.

Anyone with sense - will tell you - that if this is the case - based on this empirical data - our City and County of San Francisco has failed - has failed miserably.

This one singular fact - should awake the policy makers - from their deep slumber.

The City and County of San Francisco without any meaningful dialog - has given away large tracts of land with housing units - belonging to the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to large Property Managers - such as Mercy Housing, the John Stewart Company and Bridge Developers - all White and this is Racism of the worst kind.

The majority of the constituents living in Public Housing at Potrero Hill, Hunters Point, Sunnydale are people of color.

The property belongs to the Housing and Urban Development a Federal Entity.

There is written legal language where the tenants could own the units - but the SF Housing Authority to whom the properties were turned over to - to operated - with intent - used  "deferred maintenance" - to run down the public housing.

All with the blessing of the Mayors of San Francisco - up to this date. 

In the year 2000 there was a large Heroin Bust in Hayward - the largest drug bust in the Nation at that time.

Over a Billion dollars of Heroin was seized - and the name of some big fish in San Francisco and the name of John Stewart was on the manifest.

An important name that also appeared on that manifest - represent San Francisco in Congress today. This information is available for all to see. I just happen to know - who was involved in the operations - that seized the drugs - and after a while who truly was behind this heist. 

Our City and County of San Francisco with intent has chosen to side with the "devil" and evil Property Mangers and Developers who have no idea - whose land this is - in San Francisco.

The entire San Francisco area belongs to the Muwekma Ohlone.

The land was pristine - until the strangers came and polluted it.

The Property Managers and the Developers - have no sense about their responsibility to human beings - more San Franciscans - even less about addressing  Quality of Life issues in San Francisco.

Our neighborhoods in San Francisco once had character - these many characteristics have been destroyed - by high rise buildings - and many of them on land prone to liquefaction and flood.

Land that was once the Bay. The time will come when these tall building topple and fall into the Bay. Mother Nature always wins - and persons who think they know some - falls flat on their face.

The Mayor and his minions keep making statements that make no sense.

Enticing others with ploys that make no sense.

So now they are touting one more - Non-Profits will get an opportunity to participate - have control of certain properties that belong to the Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

All these properties can be controlled by the Non-Profit with some $52 million seed money that the City and County of San Francisco - is setting aside. The details favor those in the pipe-line and those that - " pay to play".

Much before this announcement was made - that were chosen entities having a meeting with the SF Housing Authority - at a tall building on Van Ness.

Webcor and others - all given the scoop - and all part of the on going shenanigans.

We have Non-Profits that can build and control - and have better expertise - than the John Stewart Company, Bridge Developers, or Mercy Housing.

None of the projects built buy the "evil developers" are built within the budget provided by the State of California and the City of San Francisco.

Many changed orders are made - and the Mayor's Office of Housing and one Olson Lee - is the chief mischief maker who permits this to happen. 

We know this - and the Mayor Edwin M. Lee is fine with this charlatan of sorts.

There are Non-Profits who have on their team decent developers with a heart, construction companies that have built hospitals - that demand a higher standards.

Other small companies that have build all of sorts of facilities - but these companies will not contribute to bribes = "paying to play" no way.

If you bribe the Platinum Consultants thousands of dollars - one can receive - whatever they need on a platter.

Some of us refuse to do this - and that is why the Federal Government must step in and under the RICO Act - send these "thugs" to jail for a long, long time.

Many of them working for the City and County of San Francisco as Department heads are plants of Willie L. Brown a former - "thug mayor".

I am not divulging their names in public - they know who they are - but if forced - will to Law Enforcement -provided they can do something about it.

Who invited the John Stewart Company to Hunters Point - to create a new name and area called Huntersview surrounded by the worst type of contaminants.

Adding fuel to fire and insulting the community by building inferior units that leak when it rains. All sorts to mold - are the units were not built that long ago.

You whisper and you can hear next door. What type of living does this make? The Mayor Edwin M. Lee knows about this - it was in the press for all the world to see - whey do we allow a "corrupt entity like the John Stewart Company in our community".

Not long ago - we had a reading of 840,000 structures per cubic meter - on Parcel A - not far away from Huntersview. Just depends which way the 40 and 60 miles per hours wind blows - for the Asbestos to enter the nostrils of those - that know not what hit them - and how hard.

Not a word from our Mayor or his sordid - minions on this issue.

If this had been the case - where the Pacific Heights Mafia live - there would have been a hue and cry.

EB-5 visas are being marketed in Mainland China and in other places.

Promising the innocent - that for $500,000 they can waterfront properties.

LIES - the land is polluted so polluted that a waiver must be signed - that you cannot plant anything in the soil by your unit.

You many go near the beach - but not on the beach - that is contaminated with high level of radioactive elements.

Lennar Urban is a " rogue developer " and nothing good will come from what it has in mind or touches.

It is simply wrong to entice - innocent people - to buy housing units on very contaminated land - the EB-5 Visas linked to Parcel A.

The United States Navy has controlled of the other parcels B,C,D. E, F which is the Bay - other Divisions within the Divisions G, UC1, UC2 known as Utility Corridors - and so forth and so on.

All contaminated with high levels of radioactive elements.

Recently an investigative reporting revealed - TV Station NBC Investigates -  that radioactive elements at high levels - determined as Class I dirt - that should have gone to precise sites that accept such dirt.

On the contrary very contaminated dirt laden with high levels of radioactive elements  - were sent to local landfills - as Class II dirt. 

What a  crying shame. Not a word from Mayor Edwin M. Lee - who should be ashamed of himself. Not a word from those in charge of such sordid action - the City's Environment Department - linked to Cushing and Amy Brownell.

As things stand today with the over 80 cranes all over of City and County of San Francisco.

Pandemonium on the streets of San Francisco - with congestion - and every one preparing to rake in the millions - as we approach the Super Bowl.

That will be played in Santa Clara - but the wheeling and dealing done in San Francisco. 

While all of the above is being manifested - the movers and shakers " all devils "- are focused on making money - as much as they can - and all this will come to naught - God sees it all.

We have empirical data that our women and young girls - especially those in poor neighborhoods are suffering.

Details in these reports - explain their health and all the adverse impacts they endure.

Our City and County of San Francisco and our Director of Health and the Health Commission - knows this but they look the other way.

I will be address this issue at the next San Francisco Health Commission.

The Polynesian Community has been kept in the dark.

The Polynesian Community deserves more - they come under the Asians - who swallow the majority of the funds, the grants, and think they can get away with murder in broad - daylight.

It is time for the Polynesian community to take charge of their destiny.

Shun away from those pretending to represent the Polynesians and NOT having the ability to provide the necessary services and information - required to be educated on issues and make - progress.

The Blacks in San Francisco have been kept in the dark - and are worse off today - than every before.

Too many sell outs on the payroll of Lennar Urban or evil entities - for money they will sell their community. We are watching you all - like a hawk.

Once Blacks maked up 25% of the population of San Francisco - now they are down to 4%.

Blacks leaving our City in droves - left to fend for themselves on the streets of San Francisco - facing the inclement  - weather.

I have been reporting about these facts - but now the situation has reached - saturation point. People are angry - the are desperate - and when you mix these two facts - things are ripe - for an explosion - and no one knows - in which direction - the people will go and how they will react.

The people united - have the power - and there is only so much one can endure - sooner not later the patient runs - out. This is your clarion call - to fix the problems and do something - holistic.

Latinos who one pooled their money and bought homes - were caught up with the sub-prime, derivatives, other ploys and machinations and are facing the many adverse impacts - forcing them to work two, three, and four jobs.

The Asians mostly Chinese - are buying up properties - but failing to contribute to the character of the neighborhood.

Filling the public trash cans with trash from their homes - it is a joke to see them carry these piles early in the morning to commit their dirty deed.

The neighborhood is ours and we all must keep it clean.

Once you are in the United States - make an effort to learn English - and stop the noise on the MUNI buses - shoving and failing to utter the words "excuse me ".

For sure we are a melting pot - but give me a break - let us at least make an effort to learn the necessary words in English - to get by.

Much as we learn a few words in Mandarin or Cantonese - to get by - showing our Chinese Sisters and Brothers - we are making an attempt - in the one melting pot - or a potpourri of salad.

The Mayor's Office must stop the "open markets" that are sprouting here, there, and every where - donated food sold in the open.

Often the products have expiry dates a day of two - after they are sold.

Some goods sold that have dates that have long - expired.

Recently I had to tell the person that the baby food the person was trying to sell - some Gaber Product - had expired dates - and this could come to haunt the person.

When I could not get across the language barrier - I had to find  someone to explain the fact in Chinese.

People are forced to take all sorts of measures to make a living.

When they cannot - they steal, break in your home, break into cars, commit all sorts of petty crime - and violate others.

This is not fair on those that make a good living and abide by the laws of the land - and more have the character from going to church and bringing brought up right - father, mother, the extended family - children and all - contributing their best - to the Nation - the First People call Turtle Island.

It is time the Mayor Office of Housing focus on housing - allowing home grown Non-Profits to participate.

Stop giving the crooks the inside scoop - while pretending that you all are trying to do good. 

You just cannot when your heart in not in the right place. When you are so used to receive money first and then delver the products - some of them get delivered - and others come about - with "change orders and amendments".

The worst of them all the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission - now try to entice some developers to build homes on its 28 acres parcel by City College - without any meaningful deliberation.

Much like its sordid operation linked to the $ 7 Billion - Sewer System Improvement Project (SSIP) that has failed to reveal and more discuss - the empirical data and facts - to the public at large.

Time will tell.
