Сумасшествие в нашем городе продолжается…

 

Вот что происходит сейчас у нас.

 

Вот это длится уже почти 60 дней. Мэр Портланда попытался понравиться толпе и даже сам встал с протестующими, но его “угостили” слезоточивым газом. К тому же, толпа не особо радостно приняла его за своего. 

Не очень понятно, на что живут все это время эти молодые “протестанты”. Вчера, разговорился со своей очень хорошей знакомой. Она потеряла работу и все это время получала пособие по безработице. Так вот, оказывается, безработным все это время платили по $700 долларов в неделю. Она мне сказала, что когда работала, получала намного меньше.

Конечно, можно на такие деньги не только жить, но и “протестовать”.

Начиная со следующей недели пособие сильно сократится.

Репарации выплачивают побежденные?!

А как это еще назвать? 

В Северной Каролине, в одном удивительном городе Победителям решили выплачивать репарации.

За когда-то давно бывшее  рабство репарации. Это чтобы было понятно..

Пока в одном только городе.

Пока… 

Мне вот только пока непонятно, как будут определять тех, кто достоин репараций…

North Carolina city approves ‘reparations,’ apologizes for role in slavery

The council voted 7-0 on a measure to mitigate racial disparities

North Carolina’sAsheville City Council apologized for its role in slavery and racial discrimination, voting unanimously to provide reparations in the form of community investments to help Black residents.

The council voted 7-0 on Tuesday night on the measure to mitigate racial disparities. The reparations will not provide direct cash payments, as some have suggested, but will provide investments in housing, health care and career growth in Black neighborhoods.

Councilwoman Shaneika Smith, who is Black, said the council had gotten emails from those “asking, ‘Why should we pay for what happened during slavery?'”

“[Slavery] is this institution that serves as the starting point for the building of the strong economic floor for White America, while attempting to keep Blacks subordinate forever to its progress,” said Smith, as reported by theAsheville Citizen Times.

The resolution calls on the city to create a Community Reparations Commission to make concrete recommendations of where to funnel programs and resources.

“The resulting budgetary and programmatic priorities may include but not be limited to increasing minority home ownership and access to other affordable housing, increasing minority business ownership and career opportunities, strategies to grow equity and generational wealth, closing the gaps in health care, education, employment and pay, neighborhood safety and fairness within criminal justice,” the resolution reads.

“Hundreds of years of Black blood spilled that basically fills the cup we drink from today,” said Councilman Keith Young, who is one of two African-American city council members and spearheaded the proposal.

“It is simply not enough to remove statutes. Black people in this country are dealing with issues that are systemic in nature,” Young continued.

Councilman Vijay Kapoor, who is known to split with Smith and Young on police and budget issues, said he supported the resolution for moral reasons, but urged skeptics to look at the “practical reason” — data showing large disparities between African-Americans and other Asheville residents.

“We don’t want to be held back by these gaps,” Kapoor said. “We want everyone to be successful.”

Oregon Attorney General Sues to Stop Federal Arrests of Portland Protesters

“Every American should be repulsed when they see this happening. If this can happen here in Portland, it can happen anywhere.”

Oregon Attorney General Ellen Rosenblum will file a lawsuit in federal court tonight seeking a temporary restraining order barring the Department of Homeland Security and other federal law enforcement agencies from seizing and detaining Portland protesters without probable cause.

Her announcement follows a July 16 report by Oregon Public Broadcasting that federal officers whisked away protesters in unmarked vans—rental vehicles, it now appears.

She also announced that the Oregon Department of Justice and the Multnomah County district attorney would open a criminal investigation into the July 11 injury of Donavan LaBella, whom a U.S. Marshals Service officer shot in the face with a munition.

Rosenblum announced her intention to file the lawsuit in U.S. District Court tonight, as a federal police crackdown on Portland continues against the wishes of local elected officials for the 15th consecutive night. (Disclosure: Rosenblum is married to the co-owner of WW’s parent company.)

“The federal administration has chosen Portland to use their scare tactics to stop our residents from protesting police brutality and from supporting the Black Lives Matter movement,” Rosenblum said. “Every American should be repulsed when they see this happening. If this can happen here in Portland, it can happen anywhere.”

As the top legal officer in Oregon, Rosenblum is asking a federal judge to issue a temporary restraining order against four federal agencies: the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.S. Marshals Service, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, and the Federal Protective Service, which guards federal buildings.

In late June, President Donald Trump created a task force out of those four agencies to defend federal monuments and buildings from protesters. He has chiefly deployed them to one city: Portland, where they have used the wide powers granted to federal police in spite of the objections of local officials.

If a judge grants Rosenblum the injunction, it would limit the authority of federal police to make street arrests without meeting the typical standard held to by cops: probable cause that a crime is being committed.

Торжество демократии по калифорнийски…

Вот как в Калифорнии, а точнее в Сан-Франциско решают проблемы бездомных в эпоху коронавируса.

Их селят в отели, а там они получают все, вплоть до наркотиков.

Впрочем, как я понял, не очень-то это работает.

 

San Francisco gives drugs, alcohol to homeless addicts in hotels during coronavirus, sparking debate

Controversy is ensuing inSan Franciscoafter the city decided to givealcohol,marijuana, andmethadonetohomeless addictsin hotels during the coronavirus pandemic, according to areport.

Last Friday a man who describes himself on Twitter as “Formerly homeless addict in #recovery advocating for the #truth about homelessness and drug addiction. Faith, Hope and Love. SF Native. Tweets are my own.” tweeted to the city.

He wrote: “I just found out that homeless placed in hotels in SF are being delivered Alcohol, Weed and Methadone because they identified as an addict/alcoholic for FREE. You’re supposed to be offering treatment. This is enabling and is wrong on many levels. @SF_DPH @sfbos @LondonBreed”

The city’s department of public health confirmed the report on Twitter this week.

“These harm reduction based practices, which are not unique to San Francisco, and are not paid for with taxpayer money, help guests successfully complete isolation and quarantine and have significant individual and public health benefits in the COVID-19 pandemic.”

San Franciscofell far short of securing the more than 8,000 hotel rooms that city supervisors hoped to lease to house homeless and other at-risks populations needing to quarantine or socially distance themselves during the coronavirus pandemic.

The city had set a deadline to lease 8,250 hotel rooms for the homeless, frontline workers and those living in densely populated apartment buildings.

While there was no formal punishment for failing to lease the 8,250 hotel rooms, the lack of rooms is a blow for a city that even before the outbreak of COVID-19 was struggling to handle a growing crisis in homelessness.

California acquired more than 15,000 hotel rooms to shelter homeless people during the coronavirus pandemic, Gov. Gavin Newsom saidlast month.

Newsom said then that a new agreement with the Motel 6 hotel chain would provide an additional 5,025 hotel rooms at 47 locations in 19 counties.

“Today marks an important milestone for our efforts to protect very vulnerable homeless individuals from COVID-19, and to protect our hospitals more broadly from surges that challenge our capacity and stress our system,” the governor said.

Newsom made the announcement outside a Motel 6 in San Jose, where he touted his “Project Roomkey” initiative.

The federal government has agreed to pay 75 percent of costs associated with housing some people experiencing homelessness. The project covers people who test positive or may have been exposed to COVID-19, older homeless people and those with underlying health conditions.

Squirrel In Morrison Tests Positive For Bubonic Plague

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – A squirrel in Jefferson County tested positive for bubonic plague. Jefferson County Public Health says the squirrel was found in Morrison.

Yersinia pestis, a bacteria, causes the infectious disease. Humans can be infected by the plague through bites from infected fleas or by indirect exposure, such as cough, or direct exposure, like a bite, from an infected animal.

Squarrel

An infected person or animal can suffer from high fever, chills, headache, nausea and swelling of lymph nodes. The symptoms show up within two to seven days after exposure.

Antibiotics can treat the disease.

Jefferson County Public Health recommends the following precautions be taken to protect yourself and your pets from plague.

  • Eliminate all sources of food, shelter and access for wild animals around the home.
  • Do not feed wild animals.
  • Maintain a litter and trash-free yard to reduce wild animal habitats.
  • People and pets should avoid contact with sick or dead wild animals and rodents.
  • Use precaution when handling sick pets. Have sick pets examined by a veterinarian.
  • Consult with your veterinarian about flea and tick control for your pets.
  • Keep pets from roaming freely outside the home where they may prey on wild animals and bring the disease home with them.

This is the first case of bubonic plague in the county.

Это никак не расизм!!!

Вот так, вот… Дожили. Соседнее графство в борьбе с коронавирусом превзошло все, что возможно. В графстве Lincoln решили, что только белые должны носить маски. 

Можно посмотреть по ссылке, как это все объяснялось. 

It wasn’t hard to find Lincoln County’s mask directive. A summary — in large font — featured prominently on the COVID-19 web page of the Oregon county’s health department. It was topped with a link to the full text of the order. 

The policy was nearly identical to one instituted three weeks prior without much fuss, governing Lincoln County’s courthouses and other public buildings. And it looked a lot like the ones six other Oregon counties issued after Gov. Kate Brown mandated masks be worn in seven counties where COVID-19 was rising sharply.

The one notable difference between Lincoln County’s policy and the others: it clearly spelled out something that the other six counties only implied: that “people of color who have heightened concerns about racial profiling and harassment due to wearing face coverings in public” are exempt from the rule.

 And that’s what people focused on.

They sent emails. They called. They texted. County commissioners and public health officials, already overwhelmed trying to handle a growing outbreak in the small coastal county, found their phones unusable. They set up a separate line just to handle the complaints.

“My first thought was, ‘Oh god, we’re still in the middle of a pandemic with an active outbreak going on.’ Our staff is tired, we have a lot of people we’re trying to care for, and we’re calling our legal counsel saying, ‘Oh my god, what is going on,’” said Lincoln County Commission Chair Kaety Jacobson.

The calls and comments fell into two main categories:
