When PG&E Comes to Tear Up Your Street, They Really Tear Up Your Street

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

As here, on Grove betwixt Divisidero and Scott. 

Would you call this block a part of Alamo Square (after all, you can see the wide, wide steps of A.S. right there), or the Western Addition(literally, this block was added as part of the western addtion to San Francisco, which used to have its north-south border on Larkin in the Tenderloin) or the North of Panhandle (NOPA) District (the grass-fed burgers of NOPA restaurant are just a block away!), or something else? No matter.

The point is that this block is right near where conspiracy theorist Crazy Rob Anderson (go ahead, ask him about the truth behind the death of JFK) lives. Check it:

(Man, I’ve seen people freak out over just one truck working a block. Can you imagine how the NIMBYs felt about this disruption to their day?)

I was going to try to get on my HAM radio to see if I could warn Rob about this overt operation, tell him about how undercover agents from the FBI, CIA, NSA, ETC could be laying in their own cables right along with friendly PGE.

But then I thought, well, that’s just what THEY would want me to do, probably triangulate on my broadcast equipment in a New York minute. Then they’d find my chemtrails videos and everything. So, I didn’t do nothing.

But remember, The Truth Is Out There. We’re through the looking glass, people!

Controversial Poet Amiri Baraka Coming to San Francisco’s Main Public Library This Sunday

Thursday, November 5th, 2009

Poet, activist and essayist and former SFSU Lecturer Amiri Baraka (or the Amiri Baraka) is coming to the San Francisco Public Library at the Main Branch this Sunday, Nov. 8, at 1 p.m –  Koret Auditorium, 100 Larkin Street. He’ll be discussing the first year of the presidency of Barack Obama.

Interestingly, Wiki has a whole section devoted to Amiri Baraka called “controversy” – you might find it worthy of note. See below.

Via Wikipedia:

“The following is from a 1965 essay:

Most American white men are trained to be fags. For this reason it is no wonder their faces are weak and blank. … The average ofay [white person] thinks of the black man as potentially raping every white lady in sight. Which is true, in the sense that the black man should want to rob the white man of everything he has. But for most whites the guilt of the robbery is the guilt of rape. That is, they know in their deepest hearts that they should be robbed, and the white woman understands that only in the rape sequence is she likely to get cleanly, viciously popped.”

“More recently he has replied to questions about this quote with:

Those quotes are from the essays in Home, a book written almost fifty years ago. The anger was part of the mindset created by, first, the assassination of John Kennedy, followed by the Assassination of Patrice Lumumba, followed by the assassination of Malcolm X amidst the lynching, and national oppression. A few years later, the assassination of Martin Luther King and Robert Kennedy. What changed my mind was that I became a Marxist, after recognizing classes within the Black community and the class struggle even after we had worked and struggled to elect the first Black Mayor of Newark, Kenneth Gibson”

So much for ancient history. Here’s a bit from this decade:

“Amiri Baraka was Poet Laureate of New Jersey at the time of the September 11, 2001 attacks. He wrote a poem titled “Somebody Blew Up America” about the event. The poem was controversial and highly critical of racism in America, and includes angry depictions of public figures such as Trent Lott, Clarence Thomas, and Condoleezza Rice. The poem also contains lines claiming Israel’s involvement in the World Trade Center attacks:

Who knew the World Trade Center was gonna get bombed
Who told 4000
Israeli workers at the Twin Towers
To stay home that day
Why did
Sharon stay away?
Who know why Five Israelis was filming the explosion
And cracking they sides at the notion

O.K. fine. Here are the deets from the SPL:

“In a rare West Coast appearance, poet, playwright, essayist and political activist Amiri Baraka will deliver a historic speech on the nation’s first African-American president, Barack Obama, at the San Francisco Public Library. Appearing this Sunday, Nov. 8, at 1 p.m. in the Main Library’s Koret Auditorium, 100 Larkin St., San Francisco, Baraka’s presentation is titled, “We Are Already in the Future! Barack Obama: Year One.”

In 2008, during the primary and general election cycles, Baraka surprised, delighted and provoked his friends and enemies with a series of rigorous, inventive and powerfully deciphering essays on then-candidate Obama. With this unique event, Baraka will revisit those essays, and bring his keen, and always original, interpretation of the Obama Presidency in its first year.

A transitional figure from the Beat Generation and Civil Rights Era, Baraka is known as the father of the Black Arts Movement. Baraka is also one of the true giants of international poetry and a towering presence in the U.S. The talk will be immediately followed by a discussion with literary producer Justin Desmangles, and conclude with a question and answer session with the audience.

Panda Pledge Not Enough – Panda Express Booted From UC Berkeley

Saturday, May 9th, 2009

All you have to do is scan the excellent live blog transcript from Katie Baker here to see how and why the Panda Express proposal over at UC Berkeley got kicked to the curb. For a shorter take, this detailed PANDA conspiracy chart explains everything. It all fits together, man!

Baffled Panda Express Panda, getting kicked to the curb:

The kids at UCSF don’t seem to mind the P.E. they have up atop foggy Parnassus:

Raise your left paw and recite The Pledge:

We never, ever add MSG

We cook only in 100% soybean oil

We chop our veggies fresh every day

We prepare our unique sauces in-house 

When, Oh When, Will the East Bay Area Get Its Giant Pandas?

San Francisco’s Steve Lightfoot Continues His Stephen King Crusade in Florida

Thursday, February 19th, 2009

Remember this guy and his van? He was as big as Frank Chu, back in the day. Atop the list of the World’s Weirdest/Stupidest Conspiracy Theories is the one from Steve Lightfoot. Why? ‘Cause he believes it was Stephen King, not Mark David Chapman, who shot John Lennon in 1980.

Steve’s in the news again now, for getting hauled out of a public meeting in Sarasota, Florida.

In Golden Gate Park, a while back:

Steve should have moved on to the JFK murder conspiracy or even the 911 Truth movement by now.

Oh well, look for him around town – he’ll be back someday.

Got Conspiracy? The Cabal That Keeps Milk Prices High in California

Tuesday, May 27th, 2008

So, the state of California won’t allow lower milk prices? Sure seems that way. Here’s how it looked at a San Francisco Lucky Supermarket the other day:


The Soviets over at the California Department of Food and Agriculture regulate milk prices? Yes, srsly.

You see, dairy farmers and the state of California like high milk prices. This cabal works together thusly:

California Dairy farmers want state to raise milk prices

Record milk price provides relief for dairies

Read the news and turn the pages:

Dairy Industry Crushed Innovator Who Bested Price-Control System


15-farm empire bucks industry

Not only does Food and Ag play a role in keeping milk prices high, they seem to relish offering excuses for their behaviour.



So, by the numbers:

4. Q: Why are milk prices regulated?
A: Another way to ask the same question is, “To what extent is governmental intervention still needed to achieve orderly marketing of dairy products?”

No, the way to ask the question is “why are milk prices regulated?” Or, why are milk prices so damn high? Or, why the hell is there a minimum price on milk? Answer: To please Big Dairy.

Next question:

5. Q: How do California’s milk standards differ from other states?
From the nutritionist’s standpoint, California’s fluid milk standard is healthier

No, the proper answer is “in a trivial fashion.” Why would California have such a minor difference in milk standards? To segment the market in order to please Big Dairy, that’s why.

Next question:

11. Q: How much does it cost to produce a gallon of milk?
Input costs, such as processing labor, delivery and raw product costs vary considerably.

Why on earth should the Kalifornia Kommisars even care about this issue?


Dairy Division on patrol, looking for illegal sales of low priced milk. 

The final outrage:

16. Q: Can outsourcing milk to other states reduce the retail price of milk?

Outsourcing“? Don’t they mean importing? Yes they do, but the word importing has a neutral point of view.

Thankfully, we’ve made it to the bottom of the FAQ page.

The California Department of Food and Agriculture is required to comply with the wishes of the Legislature and the Governor, of course. The mystery is why Food and Ag feels it necessary to defend the wishes of the Legislature and the Governor with this extremely bogus and self-serving FAQ page. The World Wonders.

(And if you like high milk prices, you’re going to love getting sprayed with crop dusters over your house this summer. BAM!

Bay to Breakers 2008 – The Truth About Hayes Street Hill

Saturday, May 17th, 2008

Here’s what they want you to believe: the route of the Bay to Breakers footrace is all downhill after topping the Hayes Street Hill. From the website:

ING Bay to Breakers is a 12K (7.46 miles) course. From sea level at the Embarcadero the course rises steeply along Hayes Street Hill. Around the 2.5-mile mark runners climb an 11.15% grade between Fillmore and Steiner, bringing them to the highest point in the race, approximately 215 feet above sea level. The remainder of the course gradually flows downhill alongside the Panhandle and through Golden Gate Park.

But that’s simply not true. Take a look at this elevation profile. See? After dipping down a bit the course continues to rise and reaches its highest point in Golden Gate Park. So there’s a reason why it feels you’re going uphill after conquering the Hayes Street Hill – you are going uphill.

Thousands of runners are in Golden Gate Park today preparing for tomorrow’s race. Going to the west uphill in the Panhandle:


Why does the mainstream media repeat a falsehood year after year? Laziness, mostly.

But check for yourself, if you want. Mike did last year and came to this conclusion:

According to the Garmin GPS I was using, the highest point is indeed in GG Park, not the top of Hayes Street Hill.

So plan your racing strategy accordingly.

Have fun tomorrow!

9/11 TRUTH FOR PEACE: West Coast Convergence in Golden Gate Park

Monday, May 12th, 2008

Ninety minutes into this weekend’s 9/11 TRUTH FOR PEACE: West Coast Convergence the crowd at the event in the Golden Gate Park panhandle was eighty strong, so let’s call that a turnout of over a hundred altogether for the whole thing.

As the JFK assasination is to 9/11….

Oswald is to the 19 hijackers,

The Warren Commission is to the 9-11 Commission,

And, conspiracy theorists are to conspiracy theorists


O.K., then.

Some 9/11er’s aren’t feeling the love from the “so-called alternative media,” it seems. That was one of their beefs.

Look for these people at the next large public event you attend. They’ll be there.
