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:

Какие-то недовольные граждане уже хотят заменить гимн страны.

by: Natasha Anderson

Posted:Updated:

UNITED STATES (WJW) — Some Americans are calling for a newnational anthemamid the nationwide trend of removing monuments, statues and other symbols that have ties to slavery.

Francis Scott Key wrote the poem “Defence of Fort M’Henry” on Sept. 14, 1814 when he saw the US flag flying over the fort at dawn’s early light,according to the Smithsonian Institute,

This poem later served as the lyrics for “The Star-Spangled Banner,” which became the official national anthem of the US in 1931.

However, citizens are now asking for a new national anthem because of Key’s ties to slavery.

The Smithsonian reports that Key was a slave owner and defended slave owners’ rights to own human property.

Achange.org petitionwas recently created to change the national anthem to “America the Beautiful.”

The petition alleges that not only did Key own slaves, but also that the song itself “contains racism, elitism and even sexism embedded in its third and fourth stanzas.”

Petition creators also argue the song is focused on victory and military strength and does not exemplify the American values of brotherhood, national unity and patriotism. They also cite references of inequality among men and women.

Those encouraging the change also argue that “America the Beautiful” is not only timeless but also “expresses and celebrates the highest of all ideals – i.e. brotherhood within our borders, deference to our natural resources. and indirectly alludes to the safeguarding and conservation of our air, water, and land. And in its later stanzas it also clarifies just laws, heroism and patriotism.”

Several twitter users have responded to the petition, some in opposition, others suggesting other patriotic songs that they believe could make for a good anthem.

The petition was created just days after protesters in San Francisco toppled a statue of Key during demonstrations against racial injustice.

The statue was one of three that were overturned in Golden Gate Park on Monday,Fox News reports.The others included a statue of Junípero Serra, an 18th-century missionary who was declared a saint in the Catholic Church and former President Ulysses S. Grant. Grant led his Union army to victory againstthe Confederacyduring the Civil War.

Protesters have torn down several statues of Confederates and other historical figures located across the country in response to the death ofGeorge Floyd,who died on Memorial Day in Minneapolis police custody.

President Donald Trumphaspromised executive action to protect monumentsin response to the protesters’ actions.  

“We are looking at long-term jail sentences for these vandals and these hoodlums and these anarchists and agitators,” Trump said.

The President also argued that “we should learn from the history,” stating, “if you don’t understand your history, you will go back to it again.”

The petition also comes after theUS Soccer Board of Directors voted to repealPolicy 604-1, which required players to stand during the national anthem.

The policy was put in place after Megan Rapinoe kneeled in solidarity with thepeaceful protest inspired by Colin Kaepernick, who was protesting police brutality, and the systematic oppression of Black people and people of color in America.

US soccer officials say “it has become clear that this policy was wrong and detracted from the important message of Black Lives Matter.”

Фи! Что они имеют в виду? Какая дискриминация???

Девочки бегуньи подали в суд. Видите ли, они не согласны с тем, что им теперь приходится соревноваться наравне с биологичскими мальчиками, которые трансгендеры. Почему-то, эти мальчики все время побеждают и забирают все медали на соревнованиях среди женщин. Как эти девочки не понимают, что это не мальчики… Ну, не чувствуют они себя мальчиками..

Какие-то они неполиткорректные… Девочки, конечно же, ни разу не политкорректные…

Hartford, Connecticut —Three Connecticut girls who have run high school track have filed a federal discrimination complaint saying a statewide policy on transgender athletes has cost them top finishes in races and possibly college scholarships. 

The complaint filed Monday with the U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights was submitted by the conservative Christian law firm Alliance Defending Freedom on behalf of the girls, who are asking for an investigation of the policy and orders that would make competitions fair. The complaint also cites the federal Title IX rules aimed at equal rights in sports for female athletes.

“Girls deserve to compete on a level playing field,” said Christiana Holcomb, legal counsel for Alliance Defending Freedom. “Women fought long and hard to earn the equal athletic opportunities that Title IX provides. Allowing boys to compete in girls’ sports reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women under this law. We shouldn’t force these young women to be spectators in their own sports.”

The Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference, which governs high school sports in the state, says its policy follows a state anti-discrimination law requiring students to be treated in school according to the gender with which they identify. That means that athletes can compete according to their expressed gender identity as opposed to their sex assigned at birth.

A spokesman for the conference had no immediate comment on the complaint Tuesday. The lawsuit follows other national debates that have brought greater awareness to transgender Americans. Last year, President Trump issued an order banning transgender troops from openly serving in the military, and the Supreme Court has been presented with cases seeking to define transgender bathroom policies, though it has so far declined to get involved. 

The argument in Connecticut that gender identity amounts to an unfair advantage in sports is a recurring one in the complex debate around intersex and transgender athletes as they break barriers in sports around the world from high school to the pros.

Earlier this week, Olympic running sensation Caster Semenya — who reportedly has some intersex traits — won an interim ruling in her battle against track and field’s governing body. The Swiss supreme court ordered the suspension of regulations that would require female runners with unusually high testosterone to take medication to reduce their levels of the male sex hormone if they want to compete in certain events.

The complaint from Connecticut says transgender girls have been consistently winning track and field events and the policy violates federal protections for female athletes.

The athletes who filed the complaint include Selina Soule, of Glastonbury High School, and two others whose names and schools were not disclosed.

Soule told The Associated Press earlier this year, after competing in a 55-meter dash won by a transgender student, that the issue is about fairness on the track.

“We all know the outcome of the race before it even starts; it’s demoralizing,” she said. “I fully support and am happy for these athletes for being true to themselves. They should have the right to express themselves in school, but athletics have always had extra rules to keep the competition fair.”

Two transgender female athletes who’ve been competing in high school track competitions were named in the suit. Both of the teens, Terry Miller and Andraya Yearwood, have won state titles in various events, the Hartford Courant reports, and have spoken openly about their transgender identity.

Yearwood’s father, Rashaan, told the Courant, “As a human being — not as Andraya’s father — it’s disappointing that, in 2019, we’re still debating who gets to participate and who doesn’t.” He added, “You would hope we’d gotten to a place in 300-plus years as a country that we’re not debating who should be included, and who should not be. There is no place for exclusion.”

Connecticut is one of at least 17 states that allow transgender high school athletes to compete without restrictions, according to Transathlete.com, which tracks state policies in high school sports across the country.

Без полиции — тяжко…

За прошедшие выходные дни вспышка насилия по всей стране. 

В Чикаго, 104 человека пострадали от огнестрельного оружия. 14 человек убито. Среди них 3-х летний ребенок и несколько подростков.

Ниже, кровавая хроника выходного дня.

Chicago police say that 14 people, including a 3-year-old boy and multiple teenagers, were killed and at least 90 others have been wounded in shootings across the city over the course of a violent and deadly weekend.

The fatal shootings of the weekend occurred as follows, according to police:

CoronaVirus in Oregon

Орегон, один из 22-ух штатов в США, в котором резкий скачок заболевших COVID-19.

Вот, к примеру, данные по только одному из графств. Marion County.

И это никак не случайность. После всего того, что произошло в начале месяца, все те протесты, которые, впрочем, так и не остановились, а продолжаются: все это вполне закономерно и для того, чтобы это все предсказать, не нужно быть пророком.

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Marion County had the most confirmed and presumptive COVID-19 cases of the 17 counties in the Monday report from the Oregon Health Authority.

Of the 146 cases reported, Marion County had 47, followed by Washington’s 27, Multnomah’s 17, Clackamas’ 15 and Umatilla’s 11. That means 5 counties accounted for 117 of the 146 cases.

The other counties with cases are Benton, Deschutes, Douglas, Hood River, Jackson, Jefferson, Lane, Lincoln, Morrow, Union, Wasco and Yamhill.

Two more people died from COVID-19, authorities said — a 68-year-old man in Lincoln County and a 90-year-old woman in Marion County.

There is now a total of 7083 cases reported in Oregon with 192 deaths.

Памятник Первому Президенту США снесли тоже…

Я имею в виду Портланд, конечно же…

11:30 p.m.

The group of people at NE Sandy and 57th has pulled down the George Washington statue and vandalized it with graffiti. Those responsible have left and police are now on the scene.

Protesters near the Justice Center have started walking north on SW 6th Street.

10:40 p.m.

There are dozens of people now at NE Sandy and 57th. Some appear to be trying to set up a road barricade using newspaper stands and other items. The KOIN 6 crew at the scene hasn’t heard or seen any Black Lives Matter messaging, signs or chants.

10:20 p.m.

A small crowd of protesters has gathered outside of the Justice Center in downtown Portland and are chanting slogans like “Black lives matter!” Some people have shaken the fence and sailed paper airplanes over the top into the police-only zone.

9:30 p.m.

About 20 demonstrators have covered the head of a statue of George Washington in a flag and set fire to the flag at NE Sandy and 57th. There also appears to be some graffiti on the statute.

Сумасшествие…

Сейчас только по всем каналам прошли кадры, как в Вашингтоне, столице США, сносили статую Альберту Пайку (Albert Pike) одному из генералов от Конфедератов.

Озверение продолжается.

Теперь вот так…

К счастью, этот “смелый” юноша был арестован. Несмотря на маску.

Теперь оказывается, что этот “смелый” юноша, который не испугался обидеть 92-ух летнюю бабушку, был арестован и это был его 104-ый арест. Он был выпущен из тюрьмы досрочно, когда губернатор решил “облегчить” тюрьмы в Нью-Йорке выпустив раньше времени многих рецидивистов, в связи с коронавирусом.

Сносим памятники… Добрались до 3-его Президента…

В Портланде, у нас, то есть, снесли памятник Томасу Джефферсону.

Это уже третий памятник в Орегоне. До этого снесли памятники Пионерам, тем, кто осваивал Америку. Кстати, одним из снесенных памятников был памятник Пионерам-Матерям, (the Pioneer Mother)

Что дальше?

JeffersonPORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — After a night of protests, the Jefferson statue that stood outside of a North Portland high school has been toppled.

Earlier Sunday evening, the steps of Jefferson High School was the sight of a Black Lives Matter rally led by Rose City Justice. Organizers spoke in front of a Jefferson statue—its base spray-painted with the phrase “Slave Owner.”

Some time after the march moved on toward Alberta Park, the statue was toppled. It is unclear who did it and if they were involved in the Black Lives Matter march that was staged there hours before.

The statue was the third to be taken down this weekend in Oregon, after two statues at the University of Oregon – the Pioneer Man and the Pioneer Mother – were taken down on Saturday evening.

Оказывается, мы двигаемся к… величию.

Страна катится в (здесь сами можете подобрать слово), а Президент отвечает на вопросы журналистов.

Позади него надпись Transition to Greatness. Оказывается, вот куда мы идем…

To Greatness 

Чем дальше в лес…

Страна меняется стремительно и в очень плохую сторону.

Просто факты, которые вижу сам.

Прошлой ночью, уже после часа ночи, в соседнем с нами здании стреляли. Выстрелов было пять или шесть и ощущение было такое, будто бы стреляют у тебя под ухом. Впрочем, это не только ощущение. Метрах в полутора от моих окон стоит забор, к которому почти вплотную примыкает здание. Стреляли там. Выстрелы были слышны очень отчетливо, а вот привычных звуков присутствия на месте выстрелов полиции не было совсем. Полиция не приехала.

 

Пару минут назад, на нашей парковке остановилась машина и из нее, торжественно подняв голову, очень медленно вышел парень, из тех, которые сейчас из породы Untouchables. На наши вопросы, приехал ли он к кому-то из обитателей нашего дома, ответа не последовало. Но парень направился к забору, к тому самому, о котором я писал выше, отодвинул доску в заборе и скрылся за забором. Видимо, он живет в том самом здании, в котором ночью стреляли. Дело в том, что наша парковка только для обитателей дома, где я живу, или для наших посетителей. У нас и табличка есть, что автомобиль, у которого нет прав здесь стоять, может быть увезен. Но, как я понимаю, те времена прошли. В стране появились люди, которые могут делать все, что угодно. Без каких-либо последствий.

 

P.S. Завожу в блоге новый tag — Perestroyka. Честно говоря, я не очень хочу присутствовать при развале еще одной страны. Вчера впервые подумал о том, что нужно что-то предпринимать. Пока не очень понимаю что… Полагаюсь на Него.

P.P.S. Вчера, когда раздались выстрелы, а они были очень громкими, поскольку моя дверь на улицу была открыта и она тоже “смотрит” на этот забор, так вот, моя псина только приподняла голову, и — продолжила свой сон. Yepa вот так реагировала на обычные фейерверки. А нервы у Габи оказались крепче, чем мои.

Хоть какой-то “плюс”, среди всей этой безнадеги…

Прогресс или регресс…

Постоянно, в каких-либо дискуссиях, мне приводят довод, что Человечество прогрессирует. Если говорить о технике, о технологиях, то здесь у меня никаких сомнений не возникает. Конечно же, — прогресс.

А вот Человек, как был недалеко от Зверя, так там и остался. Несмотря на то, что Иисус Пришел более двух тысяч лет назад.

Вот, доказательство…

Мэр Лос-Анжелеса решил что у его полиции денег более чем достаточно.

Вот так. Поскольку у них денег много, то он решил бюджет полиции города урезать на $150 000 000 долларов.

Интересно, будут ли благодарны налогоплательщики?

Абсолютно мирный и безобидный протест…

Вот против чего протестуют эти люди, с “добрыми” лицами?

Как вы понимаете, люди на колясках в Америке полностью “равноправны”.

Конечно же, я за равноправие и очень не хочу, чтобы меня как-то выделяли, но… Вряд-ли кто-то мог мечтать о таком равноправии..

На злобу дня. Точнее, — по теме.

Вот, нашел в Сети.

Пушкинский взгляд на ресторан “Pushkin” в Сан-Диего

Дул бриз с океанского брега,
Гулял по шестой авеню.
Вставал трудовой Сан-Диего
Навстречу тревожному дню.

А день намечался не томный:
Съезжался народ с разных мест
Продолжить хотя и погромный,
Но антирасистский протест.

Собравшись, они утром рано,
Кто с битой, а кто со стволом,
Решили: начнем с ресторана,
Есть “русский” один за углом.

И в путь свой отправились пеший,
Витрины по ходу круша…
Вдруг нищий, одетый, как леший
Навстречу бредёт, не спеша.

Избушка на ножках – наколка
Была у него на руке.
К тому же он серого волка
Выгуливал на поводке.

Все дружно шарахнулись влево –
Что, блин, за тревожный звонок?
Вдруг видят: на дереве – дева,
Причем, почему-то, без ног.

На ветке сидит с пистолетом,
Красиво болтая хвостом.
И шашни заводит при этом
С сидящим на клумбе котом.

А кот, сразу видно, – учёный,
Глазищи сверкают огнём,
А в лапах “калашников” чёрный,
И цепь золотая на нём.

В толпе не на шутку струхнули,
А кто б не обделался тут?
Они к ресторану свернули,
И поняли: их уже ждут.

Там витязей десять на страже
Застыли стеною людской,
Еще два десятка на пляже
И с ними их дядька морской.

Добить окончательно чтобы,
Старуха стоит у окна
И грузит кассетные бомбы
В какую-то бочку она.

Такого шального забега
Оравы седых мужиков
Не видел уже Сан-Диего
Наверное пару веков.

Будь ты хоть воришка, хоть Голем,
Ты должен навеки понять,
Что мы никому не позволим
На Пушкина руку поднять!

Кричат сан-диегцы друг дружке:
Кто нас от погромов спасёт?
Ответила мэрия: Пушкин.
Который теперь у них – всё.
