As of 2000 hours on 19, March 2020 a the entire state of California has been put on house arrest by order of the governor in response to the COVID 19 pandemic. Now I know, they call it shelter in place and that the more at risk need to be protected from the less responsible. The problem is that all authority for the most populated state has fallen into the hands of one man. We’re now on lockdown “with the exception of essential trips”. But what is essential? I guess that’s up to the cops and governor. But wait, there’s a large amount of things still considered to be open. Anything leisure is non essential. So many of us can be at work in the day and in your home at night. So what’s really goin on? Now is the time to become the media. Write or stream your story from your unique view. Don’t trust the 1%ers on the news to tell us how it is. Show what’s really goin on. Also make the most of your quarantine. Listen to some stuff you haven’t before. Start the book or craft you kept meaning to. Restore the lost art of conversation and check on yo people. Hopefully by the end of this we’ll still have elections. That’s right, in an emergency situation elections can be suspended.

The case against Joe Biden. Yes, uncle Joe the seeming favorite of uninformed Democrats. Let’s unpack his racism. Biden has said of black felons that they are “predators too sociopathic to rehabilitate”. When his constituents were against desegregation in Delaware he was too. He has partnered on votes with North Carolinian Jesse Helms whose rather famously racist. A proposal of his has been called “an anti-black amendment” by the NAACP. His answer to a question on the legacy of slavery was “I don’t feel responsible for the sins of my father and grandfather. I feel responsible for what the situation is today, for the sins of my own
generation, and I’ll be damned if I feel responsible to pay for what
happened 300 years ago.”Now let’s look at his creeper tenancies. He’s stated “I’m not sorry for my intentions. I’m not sorry for the things I’ve done”. This is the man we watched publicly creep on women (some of whom were wildly underrage) through 8 years of the Obama administration. Biden is the eaxact same enemy to people of color and women that Trump is.

Fuck Michael Bloomberg! Why would we replace Trump with one of his golf buddies? This reptile is nothing more than another elitist gentrifying colonizer. How many elections has he ran in? This is the only candidate who’s actually more regressive than Biden and that’s saying a lot. Lately he’s been in Compton and Detroit trying convince urban blacks that he’s the answer. It’s literally the white savior trope who probably thinks he’s some hot mixtape. The generation of Occupy Wall Street has no business supporting one of its lead agents. This has been the case against Bloomberg.

#punkvoter update. Okay we’re about a year out from the election. Couple things. None of these assholes are gonna save us. It is important to leverage our power of the ballot box to at least attempt to get the least problematic individuals into the government structure. I’m not gonna tell you how to vote but I will tell you what I think. We should vote. And we shouldn’t keep voting for these major parties. It isn’t hopeless. It’s a matter of taking their power. We the people gave it to them which means it’s our to transfer to whomever we wish. Even if you can’t stomach any presidential options there are ballot measures that matter and you can just pick a 3rd party option as a middle finger to the establishment or write in. To spread awareness we have been making #punkvoter memes. Feel free to steal and post them. We need to remember that we are the power. The government isnpaid by is which makes them our employees.
