Homeless White Men with Physical Challenges Are Whiny Crybabies Oppressing Trans People of Color

So says my latest willfully ignorant cyberbully.  Another person who comes in pretending that they want to help when they really just want to grandstand and get offended that the person they want to condescend and patronize never thought of any of their suggestions, which quickly turns into harassment when met with very reasonable resistance…

      • James Villalobos Ender Page North-Korea? Japan? I doubt it: Japanese are super-rascist & most unlikely hire someone who’s not fluent in Japanese. Koreans? Please: don’t ask the question- you won’t like the answer, either.

        Also: Asian people are into good manners & behaving well- something that scoot hasn’t been showing proper examples since day one.
        Japanese aren’t into complaints: they believe in “team work” more than Americans. Japs know better. Scott is looking forward to beneficiate himself w/o giving back (that’s not part of his predicament.) Scott doesn’t know what is helping others w/o asking for anything I’m return: that’s why Scott wouldn’t fit in the Jewish community nor in the Asian’s either.

        Besides: who likes a crybaby who thinks he deserves everything… just because he shows up? He needs to accept reality as it is: difficult for everybody. Even for me.

      • Ender Page James Villalobos first off you dont have to speak Japanese to teach in Japan. I have friends who are there right now teaching in Japan who dont speak Japanese at all.

I make no sense except I literally come from homelessness. I was homeless at 15 until 18 and then at random points in my adult life with a child and being fully disabled. I know how the fuck homelessness works. Youre making excuses for your lack of effort and want sympathy instead of results. Crying on fb about being homeless wont solve shit. Blaming your brother or that James turd for whatever does nothing. You can easily get a job in Texas or Florida. You can find jobs in Michigan. You can find jobs in Minnessota and Wisconsin.

At this point, she blocked me, and I was unable to reply further.  Based on this conversation and the fact that she is a farmer, I can only surmise that the disability she refers to is mental.  I’ve found that sometimes people with mental disabilities are extremely ableist toward people with physical disabilities.  When I referred to her as a useful idiot, I didn’t mean it as a insult, but I’m sure it was read that way.  That term has a specific meaning, as in someone who unknowingly advances the causes of their oppressors.  I guess I should have spelled out the definition rather than use the term.  In hindsight, I think I may have set her off on the negative course by using it assuming that an activist would know that’s what it meant and perhaps realize how it applied to what she was saying.  I had a woman I’ve known since second grade block me because I called Kamala Harris a “black white supremacist,” a term I learned from a black woman, and a lot of my leftist friends thought that I went too far with that one and that the block is understandable, although when I said that she was the daughter of a Black Panther leader, they thought her support for Harris was unexpected to say the least.

Right-Wing Enslaver Mentalities: Seth Barron and Riley Ramsey

Recruiter contacted me about an administrative assistant job in New Jersey paying $15 an hour. I wrote back that that’s minimum wage in NYC and would be paying extra to commute. These people have no respect.

      Edit or delete this
    • Seth Barron Everybody has to pay to commute. You would also have to pay to buy office clothes and eat lunch, etc.

      It isn’t the employer’s responsibility to pay you what you think you deserve. It is your responsibility to demonstrate value to the employer such that they will pay you what your labor is worth to them. Do a good job, and they will pay you more. How do you think tens of millions of people live?

      You don’t seem to understand that your degrees are of zero value to an employer. It’s great that you got them, but they do not equal work experience, nor do they credential you for anything. At best they signal to an employer that you have been willing to put in effort towards something.

      I follow your progress and am shocked that upon offer of an opportunity you sneer at it as beneath you, because you would have to pay train fare.

      The only thing you have to offer is willingness and good faith. I recommend that you write back and accept the offer at once.

      Delete or hide this
    • Scott Hutchins You’re mental. If my degrees are worth minimum wage, then my student debt was accrued under false pretenses and must be forgiven. I can only assume that you’re not in NYC. I pay $129 a month to commute through NYC. Traveling to New Jersey is an additional cost. Paying that for a job that pays the city minimum makes zero sense, bootlicker.
      Edit or delete this
    • Scott Hutchins It is also fundamentally dishonest of you to claim that I have no work experience. In my last position, I was paid $25 an hour. I don’t think you’re paying as close attention to my situation as you claim. My time is worth more than minimum wage, Mr. Nazi.

    • Scott Hutchins Riley Ramsey You’re a fucking idiot! $15 an hour isn’t enough to move out of a shelter, especially when you deduct the travel expense of working in New Jersey. You obviously can’t do basic math.

Charmaine Jones, fake homeless activist

These are in reverse chronological order.

 

Scott Hutchins commented on his own post.

Aug 5, 2019, 11:51 AM

She said my NAICA Bronx Park Ave ID with an active NYC CARES number wasn’t proof of homelessness.
  • Scott Hutchins commented on his own post.
    It’s so bad, the person took the trash bag out of the wastebasket that’s outside the restroom and didn’t even bother to replace it. And I thought it was lazy when they just draped the unopened bag across it instead of opening it.
  • Scott Hutchins replied to his own comment.
    Charmaine Jones Because you’re a poseur who doesn’t give a fuck about actual homeless people unless they’re the sort you can easily help: on the street, drug-addled, mentally ill, and with limited education. When you encounter a homeless person who is not like that, you go into denial mode because you don’t want to acknowledge that the economy sucks and that most of the job growth is in McJobs that are sure to land me in the emergency room because of my medical conditions, not to mention don’t pay enough to pull people out of homelessness, which is why homelessness is skyrocketing (up 36% in New York State since Cuomo became governor alone) since it’s now mostly working poor. 43% of the total NYC homeless shelter population is employed. Considering that there are about 24,000 children in that overall number, it’s more likely that the majority of homeless adults in New York are working for slave wages (which is a fair name for wages that don’t pay enough to live in the same locality in which one works). I need a cane to stand up much more than an hour, and the pain sets in a lot earlier than that. I was in the emergency room two weeks after graduate school commencement and was on welfare within a couple of months. You seem to think you’re all that because you help street people learn to read. That’s all well and good, but you seem to treat any other homeless person like shit.
  • Scott Hutchins replied to Charmaine Jones‘s comment.
    No, you made yourself look stupid. Your exact words: “If you are homeless yourself, you aren’t an activist. Make up your mind. ” That’s a stupid AS FUCK statement. It’s a copy and paste of your own post.
  • Scott Hutchins replied to his own comment.
    Charmaine Jones I’ve never once been shown to be full of shit. You keep making accusations that I’m full of shit that you can’t back up. Huge difference.
  • Scott Hutchins replied to Charmaine Jones‘s comment.
    Hakan Shakirov She claims that someone can’t both be homeless and a homeless activist, which is patently false. She claims to be a homeless activist but is totally ignorant of the methodology of Picture the Homeless, which is activism by currently and formerly homeless people to change the system that creates homelessness. It’s shocking that someone who claims to be a homeless activist is ignorant of Picture the Homeless’s work, which is known in activist circles throughout the country and beyond..

You seem to think that the only way one can be a homeless activist is through street outreach, which is presumptuous grandstanding, that actual shelter homeless people can’t be activists, that people don;t become homeless through physical challenges tat are no fault of their own, that working to change the system that creates homelessness in the first place somehow isn’t homeless activism, and that orthopedic shoes are expensive. Black orthopedic walking shoes are not exactly a fashion statement, you moron. As it is, I have to use worn-out orthotics because of a changed Medicaid policy that requires someone to have certain kinds of diabetes to pay for prescription orthotics regardless of the doctor’s recommendation.

    Charmaine Jones Just think if she were sitting next to an asthmatic. Putting on nail polish on public transportation is extremely ride. And you’re being a very judgmental jerk. If I could find cheaper shoes that weren’t painful, I would buy them. That is the only model shoe I have found that matches the shape of my foot. All others I get a major blister until my toes bores a hole in the top of  the shoe within the first month because most so-called “wide” shoes are wide at the instep instead of at the metatarsal phlangeal knuckle where my toe is widest. I already have serious foot problems, and the vast majority of shoes for me are are extremely painful because they are too narrow in this area. You’re really coming across as very inconsiderate just now.

    Charmaine Jones Excuse me, but when you’re in poverty and the only shoes you can find that aren’t painful cost $200, that’s a serious fucking hardship.

  • It’s rather apparent that the BLM and the millions of acres of western lands it administers as part of the public commons has been marked for elimination by Trump regime kleptocrats.

    Relocating its top leadership to Durango, CO is step one towards selling off these public lands to useless parasite rentier class land speculators and rape and run land exploiters.

    Their evil intent is to steal our heritage by privitizing it, then sell it back to us at great profit after stripping it bare of resources.

Book Review: Deadshot: Beginnings by John Ostrander, Kim Yale, et al.

Deadshot: BeginningsDeadshot: Beginnings by John Ostrander
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I started reading Suicide Squad because of Black Orchid (who has a cameo in this) and Shade, the Changing Man and stayed because of Ostrander’s writing (and later that of his wife, Kim Yale, who co-wrote this), eventually acquiring and reading all 66 issues, plus the Special and Annual I own issue 1, but I saw this in high grade for half off the cover price after struggling to find 2-4 without paying egregious shipping charges.

I started with the three Batman stories–excellent art (Marshall Rogers and Don Newton) and good writing (Steve Englehart, Doug Moench, and Gerry Conway), although Alfred Pennyworth having fathered a child with DC war comics hero Mademoiselle Marie seems far-fetched. These issues may be better than they seem here because only the issues in which Deadshot appeared (although not his first appearance, though a footnote makes clear that that’s not some Earth-2 version despite a more dapper costume) are included, and it ends with Deadshot revealing who hired him, which is an abrupt cliffhanger to end a trade paperback on. I guess these are in the back because they’re considered bonus stories. I thought Rogers’s art is the best in the book, although he could have done a little better setting up the giant typewriter that is used for the final battle. It blends into the background at first and had me turning back pages.

The first issue, which I’d already read for the aforementioned Black Orchid appearance, has Deadshot (real name: Floyd Lawton) offing the last member of “his old gang,” Silage, is mostly self-contained, but includes set-up for the rest of the story as Simon LaGrieve relieves Marnie Herrs from Lawton’s psych case for becoming too involved personally, and Lawton’s estranged wife contacting him for help when their son, Edward, is kidnapped. This begins Lawton and Herrs two parallel journeys that take them both to Lawton’s hometown, Lawton, which was founded by Floyd’s father, now wheelchair bound, supposedly because Floyd shot him, although he was never charged. Two deceased and never-depicted characters loom large over the events, Jennifer Herrs, Marnie’s sister, and an elder Edward Lawton, Floyd’s brother.

This leads to a powerful climax involving family betrayal, child molestation, murder, and mob violence–a complicated web to which Task Force X/Suicide Squad director Amanda Waller grieves having to become an accomplice to cover up to protect both Floyd and Marnie.

I thought the hints of romance between Marnie and the town sheriff were a bit contrived, but fortunately not dwelled upon, and the main story being pushed into three of the miniseries’ four issues might not have been the best use of space–having read the first issue, that the series was about a deeper examination of Lawton’s origin than had been previously told–was not clear even though the cover description makes it so. Luke McDonnell’s art has the feel of the eighties art in comics–even as a kid, I thought the art from the seventies I was seeing in back issues was better than a lot of what was on the stands (I was twelve when this series came out–I was aware of Suicide Squad on the stands but wasn’t drawn by the art or title, which I erroneously thought was DC’s answer to Marvel’s Strikeforce: Morituri, which I didn’t read either but knew what the concept was from Bullpen Bulletins), and doesn’t, to me, look as good as the art later in the volume. One image of Silage taking his gun from under his shirt had me studying the image carefully because the anatomy of the hand looked messed up, and continued to even after McDonnell’s intention became clearer to me. In the climax, there is a noticeable goof when Deadshot has his armed trained on someone, then lifts his arm when he is convinced not to fire, and his blaster appears on the underside of his arm when it wasn’t there before. For the most part, though, the art serves the story well, and there are some stylish low angle closeups of characters’ faces.

As with all of Ostrander’s Suicide Squad (at least through its initial cancellation in 1991–I have not read Raise the Flag), this has my recommendation.

T RopE T RopE Magical Thinking. You’re gonna be in for a real let down if your thinking doesn’t make you rich. Is getting rich the only important thing, and are the rich the only ones that deserve to keep their heads above the water? This society needs teachers, nurses, sheet metal workers etc; professions that will never make people rich, but are essential to make our nation run. Nobody is complaining that they’re not rich. They’re complaining that they can’t make ends meet. It’s when you get to the point where workers say, “screw it. It’s not worth it”, that’s when society falls apart.

I dont think the argument is millennials are lazy. Im a parent of 2 millennials. Every parent sees what they felt their parents could have done better with. And we make these adjustments with our children. Millenials came in with hyper marketing of electronic devices in mass quantities. There was the cellphone, cable, laptops, always upgrading. Where my generation grew up with Hitler. No. I literally mean, our parents were products of nazi idealist. It was either produce perfection. Or be locked in your room for 3 months with no tv, no phone, no stereo, no friends. You could come out just 1 hour for dinner time. But had to go back to your room. We had either psychopathic parents, or military parents. So. We try to overcompensate for what we feel are losses. The millennials also had to deal with the single parent generation. This wasn’t ideal either. Although i chose this myself. I now see how its effected my kids. Reality is that all these propaganda shows made us feel inadequate, but motivated us to try harder, and fo better. We love our kids so much we want to take on the world and still protect them. This is my last statement. Things are getting EXTREME in the way thar media is trying to produce heathens out of kids. We are about to get a Childrens Rights bill. DO NOT TRUST IT. ITS ONLY MOTIVATION IS MAKE PEDOPHILIA LEGAL.

Ricardo Franco please do. Millennials are the biggest whiners. Why? You don’t study money. How to make it, multiply it and invest it. Instead you cry about how hard life is. Millenials who have technology and can write 6 lines of code and become billionaires. Millenials who look down on trade school while crying about 150k student loans. Biggest bunch of cry babies…. the only generation that needs safe spaces and crayons.

Fender Player1963 How many millennials do you actually know? Most of the problems they have were created by their parents’ generation. They were aggressively marketed to to go to college by their parents and schools, and they were given the message while growing up that trade school was beneath them. And they do have a right to complain about college costs. I went to public college in the 1980s, and I was able to get Pell Grants no problem. Tuition was so much more affordable that I was able to finance a lot of the cost through my part time job. I graduated in August 1989, and I was able to pay off all my college debts by that December. Fast forward to 2019, my son just graduated from a public college for engineering. We gave him as much financial help as we could, and he got a few scholarships, but he still graduated with 30 thousand in debt. I can assure you it will take more than four months to pay off. Yes, Boomers had it a lot easier than the kids today in that department so don’t be saying that they all feel entitled. In many ways, they have more in common with our depression era grandparents.

Gerald O’Brien Be responsible for yourself. Everyone has had challenges to overcome. I dont hire millennials because it’s been my experience they have no sense of personal responsibility. Life isn’t easy and wanting everything for free will certainly make it harder. There is a reason millennials are called snowflakes. Gen Z is better. I hire them, they work and don’t complain. There is hope yet for America.
