Some say the majority of those who are " greedy " are spiritually bankrupt.
I like that - guess what I say that all the time - may be it started with me saying that from back in 1989. What does that saying apply to things and issues today? For instance .....
Once - here is San Francisco for thousands of years - things were more than pristine.
Abolone abounded - herring, small birds and deer - and there was more - an abundance of food of all kinds - and all that food was fresh and not contaminated - as much of it is now.
Those that lived on this land - much before the Vikings visited this area - the Russians fur traders of old - that came and vent , others in small bands - too many to name.
Lewis and Clark came North and they went back to the East Coast and reported - that the West had all the resources - far more than was available on the East Coast.
The revealed facts of the great redwood forest, the Sequoia and more - the lakes, rivers, and all that was beautiful of landscape - the many rich valleys - and plenty of fauna and flora and more.
Other scouts came - and reported back to their contacts - the hordes came from all directions - all they said was that Turtle Island was rich in resources - plenty of land to settle down.
In all of the deliberations - never once thinking that the land belonged to the Native Americans.
It was as if those that had the guns, the power to kill - those were the ones - that had it all.
Might was right - and to hell with compassion and stealing the land and murdering the people. Killing innocent children and raping the women.
And yet today - those that did it - and some of their ancestors are alive - made money selling scalps - and there is NO - apology what so ever.
Shame of those that committed such crime - the BLOOD is on the hands of all those that bear the name - of those that today too - share that responsibility - genocide.
It must be stated here - much before the word "genocide " was invented and reported - all over America - the " greedy " practiced " killing and murdering " in the United States.
Such crimes as scalping - fetching $ 5 for a scalp - and edicts went out from the Governors - including that from the Governors of California - kill an Indian and fetch $5 - $5 went a long ways - in those day - when the West was more than wild and things dirt - cheap.
All over this land - the name given was the United States of America - a name given - by those who landed here - mostly from Europe.
These strangers - who came here without any documents - with few things - had it made.
Mostly having not taken a bathe - as they were not use to taking a bath after years. They stunk to high heaven - many written reports speak of these unhygienic people of sorts in detail.
They found it strange to see the Native Americans clean - and dressed well - be it with colored feathers as the headdress - and fine leather outfits - and beads - one of a kind.
Those who landed - here on Turtle Islands were weak and malnourished and were treated well by the Native Americans from Turtle Island.
Only for those who were fed - later on - to become ungrateful in the course of time - who revolted - confronted - and bit the hand - that fed them.
Used their guns and snuck in the dark - to kill and murder - those that helped them.
Stealing and raping- and thinking nothing of their deeds - even though most of this folks - came here to find religion - their own warped religion - to this day - they say one thing and practice - another.
In course of time they earned the name - pale face - and then to that was added - " they speak with a fork tongue " - referencing the snake - more those snakes that have poison and are deadly.
For starters this land was called Turtle Island - for starters those strangers - were NOT welcomed.
They just landed here - fleeing from their lands - where they were despised for their religious believes.
The strangers brought their despicable ways to this Nation - and to this day - in various forms - hate the Native Americans - and with intent break the treaties that were signed.
What is happening in North Dakota - right now with the Dakota Access Pipeline - is one instance - that has brought the world together - to put an end to the nonsense - of building projects and putting Resources such as Water, our Environment, the land - in jeopardy.
Again and again polluting and contaminating land - the many spills from crude oil - the pesticides and the bombardment with dangerous particulates - atrocities committed by the strangers - on land - Sovereign Land - mean nothing to those that are GREEDy. This nonsense MUST STOP - right now. Make no bones about it.
Many of those committing these atrocities come from families - who over generations foster very bad character - mostly thieves - inherent in their DNA - they are evil to the core.
The indigent from Europe were told to go to a land - where they could reform themselves. Most of these indigent people - were not wanted in Europe.
Those that told them to go to go to this land - far away from Europe - lied to them.
Most of those that survived - the journey to Turtle Island - had no skills.
As I have stated the Native Americans helped them initially - only for those that were helped - to become ungrateful. Biting the hand that fed them.
Go figure - considering today - what segment of the population - are incarcerated - and who truly controls - most of the resources and amenities - making tons of money - who is controlling whom?
Incarceration is a business - Whites controlling these business - and using all sorts of technology to adverse impact people of color. Cheap labor is found in our Prison System - and those that have been incarcerated have more to tell - but do not get an opportunity to - reveal the details of the incarceration.
People working for 10 cents an hour - and for long hours - all in the name that such work - much of it menial - will bring about rehabilitation and other ideas - out dated, mundane - and Smithsonian.
Even though at first these strangers - were found starving to death - those early recordings - were changed to record - that the " strangers " - had more to offer to Turtle Island .
The truth be told - the many Nations and tribes - who lived here - on Turtle Island - did very well for themselves.
More - for thousands of years.
That is until the skunks arrived - and messed it up - today it is a total - mess.
The Six Nations - the Iroquois Tribe - the Native American Nations - who had their own system of living and exercising jurisdiction - among themselves - are well know - and detail recored of the Long Cabin - the norms and the civilized nature of their being.
Those that they came in contact with - mostly other Native American Tribes - who as we know - lived well and had all the resources needed to survive - had different systems of organization - they understood what was right and what was wrong.
Let us not kid ourselves that among the Native Americans - that they had no skirmishes - they did.
Not on the scale practiced by the Whites - who killed without any accountability - the horrific stories of women and children being killed - just to wipe them out.
The Founding Fathers - often inter-acted with the Six Nations - and were surprised that they exercised a kind of " democracy " - that was not found in Europe or any other place on the Earth.
The Founding Fathers openly have stated - this knowledge that they incorporated into the workings of our Republic - our Constitution - they got from the Six Nations.
The Founding Fathers - framed a Constitution that gives rights to all - the Founding Fathers - wanted the Republic to be governed - in a convoluted manner - from the start.
The rich and those land owners - were protected - much as we see in our system exercising the so called Electoral College - as part of our Voting System.
Remains of the feudal system - it worked - as the rich and those having power - got their way - holding to their assets - large tracts of land and slaves.
All the time making broad but all the more subtle distinctions - who indeed could gain from the rights in our Constitution.
Blacks and Native Americans - even all women - White women, Native American women, Black women - all women did not have the right to Vote.
We know for sure all Blacks men and women - Native Americans men and women - all got their rights to vote - in the 1960s after the Civil Rights Movement.
Before that they could not vote - they were considered less than human. In many parts - mostly in the South - to this day - some perception still lingers - and the United States Government is slow to bring about - justice and fair play.
The paradox those that practiced discrimination - stating that people of colors were closer to animals - mentioned that the Bible said so - but no where in the Bible - was there made mention - of such utter - nonsense.
The Civil Rights won in the 1960s - will soon be challenged by Evil Forces - that have now - won the last November, 2016 Elections.
These evil forces - are poised to further - create divisiveness - here at home in San Francisco - all over the United States - but also - all over the world. Time will tell.
Here is San Francisco we enjoy a unique and special Eco-system - in recent years - what was in place for thousands of years - has been totally compromised.
Above a patch of land by Islais Creek - where once abound herring and all sorts of fish - now polluted by secondary effluents from the Phelps Raw Sewage Treatment plant - and other pollutants and contaminants - from near by industries past and present.
There are thousands of factors or matrix that can be used - to register the on going demise of species - birds, insects, animals and so on.
Suffice to say - if we zero in on the " frogs " - is our area - San Francisco and the neighboring area - we see the demise of many species of " frogs ".
Some years ago - we worked hard to protect the " chorus frog " - as big as a thumb nail - yet able to make noise that would boggle one - once you found out his or her size.
Hear the chorus frog sing:
The same can be said about insects - one of a kind - totally gone - we cannot bring these insects back ever.
We kind of like to zero on the butterflies - their color and they being cute - draws us to them.
We know - those of us who have deep feelings - have compassion - are in tune with Mother Earth.
The sad state of affairs - when it comes to our butterflies disappearing from the face of the Earth - animals one of kind killed because they are exotic - we know who does it - it is those who we call - " greedy ".
The many pesticides - the many fertilizers used - to keep our so called economy growing - more in the agricultural area - pollute and contaminate Mother Earth.
When we see clearly - the land has been over burdened - millions of acres of land - now lying wasted - the nutrients exhausted - this barren land - can absorb water - but cannot bear fruit.
This land - that we call Mother Earth - on which the plants survive and grow the same with the trees, the fruits that are borne - over used and left barren - we see this all over the Nation - and we can do nothing about it - it is a crime.
The land is worked to bear us all kind of food - the rivers, the lakes, the environment - all worked to bring forth produce and food. We must respect Mother Earth - but many do not.
It is sad to see barren land. We have millions of acres of barren land in California - that once was fertile.
No human being - whose heart is in the right place - will tolerate such nonsense.
The only two legged animal - who does this all over the world - is the " one that has no feeling, no morals, less ethics, and is filled with "greed " - practices - avarice.
We have companies like Monsanto - who we have been fighting - whose products have caused a lot of adverse impacts - contaminating Mother Earth.
Monsanto keeps raking in billions - while causing great harm to Mother Earth - and more and more decent people - are learning about Monsanto and other such sordid - companies.
Here are home in San Francisco - for the last 35 - I have been monitoring the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission.
The presentations given linked to the Sewer System Improvement Project ( SSIP ) are " bogus ".
A far cry what is happening - at our Phelps Raw Sewage Treatment plant in the Bayview.
What is really happening at - our Ocean Treatment plant?
Both Treatment Plants - have serious problems - that will soon be reviewed by the Controller of the City and County of San Francisco - Ben Rosenfield.
Our SF Public Utilities Commission has used deferred maintenance - to adversely impact our watershed, our Bay with the failed WEIRS - the air with Methane gas - and other contaminants.
Some years ago - Clorox a very toxic liquid - was used in our Digestors - that adversely impacted our Bay.
We find more and more the shenanigans at the Phelps Raw Sewage Treatment plant - bordering on sabotage.
We know for sure the HAVC - that mostly is the air-conditioning component - does not work properly and has not been working for decades - at the Raw Sewage Treatment plant - because of faulty calibration. You is fooling whom?
Our workforce training linked to the opportunities offered by the SF Public Utilities Commission - does not have - " upward mobility " and " sound career opportunities ".
At one time the San Francisco Human Rights Commission - had Compliance Officers - that could do their job - no more.
Today there are NO opportunities - worth the salt - linked to the Sewer System Improvement Project (SSIP) - some drab workforce models that have made no progress.
It is important to note the Mundane Workforce programs - linked to Young Community Development. Now reduce to hoodwinking the public at large - with some one controlling over $150 million - for which we the community fought hard - but now the one controlling the money - works for the devil.
It is the same with outreach another $150 million - Juliet Ellis charged by the Fair Action Political Committee - saw that see sent $200. 000 to her former non-profit - and had to return the money. Paid the fine.
Juliet Ellis makes over $200, 000 and still is ganging up on SF Public Utilities workers - that are hard working and decent - she is alway messing with them - and this must STOP.
Other folks that are working on Workforce and do not have the empirical data - about progress made - more money spent on Administration and less on placement of sound career - jobs.
The SF Public Utilities Commission - all of them fast asleep at the cockpit. Wake up before you all are charged by the RICO ACT.
We are monitoring - so called Workforce modes that do not deliver anything much to the community at large - more the Southeast Community.
Programs that stink to high heaven - worse than the foul smell emitted by the Phelps Sewage Treatment Plant in the Bayview.
Those running the Treatment Plants must be audited and the results - posted on the SF Public Utilities Commission - website.
This is Muwekma Ohlone land - stop contaminating and polluting this land.
Land - that was stolen - all it it - every square inch.
I represent the Muwekma Ohlone - and have the imperial data - to prove to those - that want to see the data. Aho.
