Vol II Debuts – News but No Comfort Nor Company

Submitted: February 15, 2018

New Moon - 15 February 2018

Vol. II will be a modified format. It will be the beginning of articles the likes of which will be part of the website I will be building for my writing and creative design business: SP CIE
(Communication, Information, Education). I will also be sharing some marketing insights as well. A work in progress. I plan to write straight news articles on California and regional places around
and within, as well as commentary, and to some extent, some global perspective. The emphasis will be on News generated from the West Coast, not the old East Coast establishment. Especially with
what is happening to the environment and threats from various Pacific entities, and the changing sentiments of Californians and Americans, in general, on the fall out of guns in schools and just
guns, I think people are continuing and building the revolution that began with their election of an outsider, really, to be an icon for change (whatever his difficult personal luggage). Hopefully,
readers can help me keep abreast of what you may be taking control of in this culture that doesn't work for us.

Reply - Solano Co. Bd of Supes candidates' response to "homelessness" issue published 16 April 2018

Submitted: April 17, 2018

My reply to Solano Co. Board of Supervisors, Dist4 (and Dist 5 - Rio Vista) as to candidates comments in an article posted in Fairfield, CA's DailyRepublic on 16 April 2018 prior to their June
primary as to views on "homelessness" which seemed to me to be ignorant, as none of them recounted they had ever been houseless and none seemed to have firsthand knowledge of the subject from
Intersection 1, on, which is not acceptable in today's housing in California for those seeking a seat at the county supervisory level. This is also posted on the SP CIE News Site Book page. sp

Denied Affordable Housing After + One Year Wait

Submitted: September 15, 2018

HOUSING LOG Continues - Have Truck, Seek Shelter, in California in the Year 2018 -

Pasting bulk of a reply mailed 15 Sept. 2018 to Sterling Asset Management, Winters, CA in reply to a form letter received telling me that after over a year of waiting, finally coming up on list for
an affordable housing unit, where I had presented documentation to proceed, and that only a review of credit score was needed, and a couple of other things, and to which I offered my latest credit
score and was told that was not a deal breaker, to not be concerned, that applicants with similar scores are often processed through, and that they looked at other considerations, too; such as how
many in household (only me), the form letter indicated I was denied eligibility for housing based on “Poor Credit.” That was the only reason given. Long wait! Why did they bother?

I have been employed during the waiting period at two jobs, one at which I was terminated for too many medical days off during first 90 days of employment (3), which Dept. of Fair Housing and
Employment even now is investigating, the second to work the closing of a major chain dept. store and it is by them I have been offered employment to work at another location now. As well, in a few
days I am interviewing for a part time job at a paraprofessional wage in Sacramento.

All by way of saying, what was this for? The answer in my opinion is this is about control by the real estate industry to purportedly provide housing to low-income persons but who are really
trolling to identify those likely to develop a household income that will allow them to become a real estate buyer in a short period of time. The real estate industry dictated the terms of the
program which was legislated then. It is processing it without supervision to the detriment of the truly tax paying citizen who may not become a real estate buyer soon, or may; and it is capturing
data from those who lack proper housing, not identified as persons who need food or are mentally ill, or any of the other old saws, but dismissing persons who are used to a certain level of
housing, are mobile, are not on social services, wish to return to their standard of living, do have income, their credit rating is clearly identified as to why it decreased, and is improving, and
are doing everything right, and the industry flat smacks them down in defiance of the supposed very nature and spirit of the affordable housing plan.

This is another example of the egregious misuse of those who seek housing by legislators who misrepresent their constituents by throwing in with the miscreant real estate industry. They aid in
suppressing further those who suppressed by the mechanics of the specious credit scoring system that plays calculations against an individual to depict (as if it really means anything) an
increasing debt to income ratio if they lose a job, perhaps through no fault of their own. By increasing the numbers of bias factors thrown against the suppressed person, evidently legislators
receive what they desire in social credits or points to be favored with election contributions by the real estate industry.

My Truck, Cheap At Twice the Price

Submitted: March 24, 2019

My truck has reached 20 years and has 192,000 miles on the odometer. I bought it when it was 14, a little less than 60,000 miles back. I never had to spend repair money on it until the past 12
months. I have had an ongoing repair list the past year but some of it came from a stalker and his attendants putting their hands on the vehicle a number of times. In his case, I have asked
directly where I might send a claim for repairs and was told I would not be given information. I have attempted to learn how to present my claims to any who might be in some way responsible for him
where he lives and what was done to my vehicle has been set out and some information was provided me.

Letter to Stockton CA Mayor dated 2 July 2019 re Devastated Heritage Housing by having been made a Sanctuary setting

Submitted: July 06, 2019

July 2, 2019 marked a solar eclipse: end of the old, start of the new. This letter is a discourse and suggested resolution of a devastating problem in California and the nation; modeled for the
world to see in Stockton, CA sanctuary cities used to trigger destruction of neighborhoods; and the devastation of quality heritage changed to desolation. Posted here is a version,
revised-for-clarity, of the letter mailed to the mayor of that city on 5 July 2019 from the author, with a copy sent to its California assemblywoman, state senator, and Congressional

Finally it appears I have been killed off by CA Unemployment Benefits

Submitted: January 26, 2020

Yes, they did it yet again; my experiences with California Unemployment Benefits may not be unique, but for no reason they put my benefits into pending status for no reason, and denied me the
ability to catch up with a credit card that is going to four months late on a special payback schedule I have been on for years, and was just seeing a hint that I could see light at the end of the
tunnel and the amount that was in 5 figures about 5 years ago will be paid off in two, won't for I am probably being sent to Collections this week, for no reason but goofiness from CA EDD. Same
thing with my supplement insurance, which was to be caught up on this month, and I had tests in Dec. and Jan. including an MRI last Friday. Then there is my vehicle ins. which is two months late
now and I need a new engine; the truck barely runs. I must drive 25 miles to get to any town for business. I was catching up; EDD put me at pending because my seasonal six week job didn't schedule
me to work at all after 12-26-19 and I guess EDD wondered why and cut me off. The why was because they were letting all temp workers go eff. Jan. 15, 2020 and in meantime we were not going to be
scheduled; but my claim had already been opened, back in Sept., based on employment in 2019, and I had to use it in bits and parts throughout the seasonal job with J.C. Penney in Fairfield, CA.

1 February 2020

Submitted: February 01, 2020

As to this type of diary, begun in 2017, which should long ago have ended with my obtaining a proper job, and proper residence, and respect for my maturity, intellect, life experience and education
as a citizen, CA Unemployment Benefits, once again bungled ineptly, couldn't do simple arithmetic or make an intelligent phone call, and evidently has wrongfully denied me ongoing benefits on an
old claim that will end in my not having food or money beginning 3 February, 2020 and will cause to me fail meeting final deadlines for all debts I have long been paying finally once and for all,
these many years. Just when I was seeing a small light at the end of a tunnel on the debt payoff spectrum. I will lose possessions, heirlooms, and all but my sense of myself. I am advanced as an
expert on this topic.
