Key West blues might rhyme with apocalypse, as might Uber

Naja and Arnaud Girard

OP/ED by Arnaud and Naja Girard……..
Hurricane Irma has left hundreds of people homeless in the Florida Keys. We wanted to know how the local government was handling the housing crisis.
Officials seem genuinely concerned. They hold meetings and workshops on workforce housing issues. But clearly the problem predates the storm. Locals believe that, in recent years, too many residential units have been allowed to be transformed into vacation rentals.
In this context we were surprised to learn that this week the City Commission voted to approve yet another legal scheme that would allow more of those desperately needed residential units to be transformed into transient accommodations.
Why is this happening? The answer is simple: Money. And a lot of it.Continue reading »

Responses to “City’s Deregulation of Transient Licenses Will Reduce Residential Housing”

  1. Bravo, Arnaud and Naja! Bravo!
    Alas, it appears the bulk of your readers prefer fake news, to blue paper news, evidenced by their paltry financial support.
    I had a string of dreams last night, seemingly captained by Arnaud, about really bad shit happening to Key West, because it has ignored the blue paper.
    The last dream convinced me that I should take the earlier dreams seriously.
    Specific topics raised in the dreams were the blue paper’s explosive reporting of the murder of suspected homeless man Charles Eimers by Key West police officers, the ringleader of whom I heard yesterday is active in a local evangelical church; and the blue paper’s explosive reporting of the Higgs Beach dog park sitting on top of African slave remains.
    This morning I called a good friend of mine in the mainland, who is a professional psychic and is known to readers on my own website as Hoodoo Witch. When I told her about my dreams last night, and that I came out of them convinced something really bad is going to happen to West, she said she just then recalled a dream from last night, in which she was on an island somewhere and there were terrible winds coming at the island from all different directions, and she said to herself, “This is really bad and I need get away from here.”
    That all happened after I flew from Key West to Birmingham yesterday, and then drove to Tuscaloosa, where I will be hanging out for a while, scouting around to see if I am to live around here, or live here and in Key West, or live just in Key West.
    After last night’s dreams, I suppose a perverse part of me wants to be in Key West to see its karma play out first hand, but another part of me wants nothing to do with that.
    I gave Key West and the Florida Keys 17 years of my life, on my dime, trying in my own way what the blue paper under Arnaud and Naja have been trying to do in their way, and I can’t say I had any appreciable effect, so why should I go down with that seriously troubled ship?
I haven't forgotten being shown in dreams and visions, that African shamans directed Hurricane Irma to Key West, because of that dog park over the African slave remains; nor that it was because the seer homeless woman Kari Dangler lived in Key West, that angels nudged Irma slightly eastward, sparing Key West the brunt of Irma's devastation.
In my last dream this morning, I was in the branch post office in the Winn Dixie shopping center where my and Kari's post office boxes are. Kari came into the post office and smiled at me.

She has been banned by Key West police from being in that shopping center. 

In another life, I had a wife who called me the mailman, because it was my habit to deliver the messages. 

That's the dream which convinced me to take all the earlier dreams seriously.

I have published that Kari alone has done more for Key West than the current mayor and city commissioners combined, and the city should give her a free apartment in which to live, and the karma for the way city police have treated her will be rough.

Kari told me before Hurricane Harvey smashed Houston last year, that a giant hurricane would hit Key West; she could feel the barometric pressure dropping inside her body. Maybe she felt a hurricane that has not yet spawned.

Someone in Key West told me this morning of hearing yesterday of a local grand jury investigation and many indictments coming down.

There are many ways karma can make Key West a place people do not want to live, or visit.

during a taxi ride to the Key West airport yesterday, I asked the cabbie how was business? He said it's recovering, Uber is being seen for what it is.

Some things he told me.

Twice, Uber passengers left their wallets in the Uber car, but by the time that was discovered, the Uber driver had gone back to the mainland and it took a while to get the wallet back to the owners, who were tourists and needed their ID to get on their airplane flights out of Key West. The cabbie said wallets, purses, get left in cabs frequently, and when they get the call, they take the wallet or purse to the owner right away.

Late New Year's night, Uber quadrupled its $20 rate for transportation from Duval Street to the top of the island, to $80 dollars. The people who called Uber and learned of that, then called local cab companies and were told the fee would be $60, instead of $60. they paid the $60. Why only charge them $20, they were traitors, the cabbie said, and New Year's Eve was a very good night for cabbies in Key West.

And, when Uber was first approved by the city commission, Uber put its drivers up in local hotels, but that did not last, and then Uber drivers, most of whom were from the mainland, slept in their cars, which is a jail offense in Key West. (The city police thought Charles Eimers was living in his car.)

When Uber drivers are carrying passengers, they are covered by Uber's liability insurance, but when not carrying passengers, Uber's drivers are covered only by their own insurance.

Uber drivers from the mainland have trouble speaking English. The cabbie yesterday, who is an Anglo American, spoke English and Spanish.

Uber drivers from the mainland do not know their way around Key West, and when passengers say they want to go to a particular restaurant, but don't have the address, a mainland Uber Drivers don't know how to get there and have to be directed by the passengers.

Several foreign countries, including France and Germany, banned Uber. Recently, Uber pulled out of London after being told it had to meet taxi cab laws and regulations.

I told the cabbie that I know people in high places in Key West and will tell them what he told me.

a real man... shutting down the government... Abraham, Isaac and Ishmael... sharia law in America... letting the already dead die... psycho-spiritual healing... living in the moment and suspense...

Monroe County (Florida Keys) State Attorney Dennis Ward sent by Facebook Messenger this morning:

Sloan, I think your extended exchanges with Mike Tolbert have had the salutary effect of improving his writing.  He frequently actually engages with you now and is sometimes interesting.  Keep up the good work!​

I replied:

Should I send him a bill for improving his writing?

I hope this last round with him is the end of it.

I wish his right-wing thinking did not represent how tens of millions of Americans think, but does - Trump's white right-wing base.

My this morning, P.S.

What I wrote to you yesterday aside, my sense is, the main point, the effects of pervasive sexual abuse of children in America, died for lack of interest.

I opened Waldo's link and perused the article and replied to Sancho:

Aw, Sancho! Poor, beleaguered Waldo just can't seem to stop dumping his worries on you.

I've been "obsessed" with politics since late 2000, when the US District Judge I had clerked for came to me in a dream, in Tallahassee, the Florida state capitol, not capital, that's for capitalists (das kapital), and told me he was thinking about getting into politics, and I told him I didn't think that was a good idea, but knowing him, he was going to do it, and I woke up in shock, because I detested politics. When he was alive, the judge had run the Democratic Party in Alabama behind the scenes. 

Not long after that dream, I was dipping into politics in Key West, where I was headed when I had the dream in Tallahassee. The politics started showing up dead in front of me, and given I was keen on keeping the angels running me happy, I figured they had made that dream, I engaged the politics dead in front of me. 

This led to that, and what was dead in front of me started including what I was seeing online.

As I recall, it was maybe a couple of years later that I bumped into you in some kind of online political forum, and we started our online friendship, much of which was political in our discussions.

Now, we are older and perhaps not so hopeful and are lying back and enjoying the madness some of the time, since we know there isn't a fucking thing we can do about it but try to make it even more entertaining via what we say and write about it. Hee Haw, and all that good shit.

I think Trump said exactly what he is accused of saying about shithole countries. I also think it was locker room talk, and the weasel who blew the whistle is a pansy. But perhaps a pansy was needed due to the American public deserving to know better the shithole half of them voted for in 2016. 

You voted for him, but not because you liked him. You figured he would bust up the D.C. zoo faster than anyone else on the horizon, and he's doing a pretty good job there.

I think the pansy might have turned a lot of the blacks, hispanics and asiatics, who voted for Trump in 2016, against him, both because of the shithole remark and the praise of white-faced Norwegians, but also because he refused to man up and admit he said it, which DID make him look like a racist, I think, instead of like a foul-mouthed asshole, which remark I resemble.

I think the Demos should have tucked shithole countries away and laid low, intending to exploit that in future state, congressional and president elections. Instead, the Demos got on their holier than thou white horses and demanded censure, and are threatening to shut down the US Government if the Republicans don't censure Trump, which the Demos probably can't, since the Republicans have majority in US House and Senate.

Who gets hurt worse if the Demos shut down the Government? Duh. The Demos' base. Do the Demos want their base to vote Republican? Kinda looks that way to me.

Ask and you shall receive.

Waldo is an old colleague and friend... he's a living contradiction! As for you, no, I met you on line but we weren't talking national Politics back then, as I remember, we were both members of a Yahoo group(this was way before facebook was around) that delved into new age metaphysics(the power of the mind and its mastery, etc.), the name of the group was "Imagination Science" ... anyway I was not much into politics back then... except maybe "The Politics of Experience" by R. D. Laing! *>:) devil
As for the Government Shutdown, it ain't gonna happen, at least not long enough to do some good... we owe close to 20 Trillion Dollars but nobody cares to talk about that... if the USA were to default on its debt, the entire World Economy would collapse, so no, is not going to happen... at the end we will just print more money for Border Walls, Space Weapons and Subsidies for the rich and poor alike... nothing changes, a chicken in every pot! 

I replied:

Thanks, for straightening out my aged memory.

I, too, don't see the Demos shutting down the government, not even sure they can, but it's idiotic of them to talk about doing it; just as idiotic for the Republicans to talk about doing it.

It will be interesting to see if the liberal media runs with the old photos and videos of Trump not being a racist.

Saw a TV news report of him tonight, all fire and brimstone re stopping people from undesirable countries coming into America. I know his right-wing fan base ate that up. 

I can't say I disagree with them. But then, I think America is kinda over-populated already, and perhaps immigration should be curtailed across the board. And overseas wars abandoned. And Israel cut loose.

The angels trained me in psycho-spiritual healing, moving into metaphysics, then deeper cross-training. Putting me into politics has always seemed to me to be a default program. A plan B. Perhaps because Plan A didn't work out. Wonder if there is a Plan C?

As things now stand, I'm headed to Alabama tomorrow. Seems like a scouting mission, to see what, if anything, might open up for me there. My dreams and other "signs" are supporting this trip. I'm keeping my flat in KW and will come back, if not to stay, but to pack leave. Perhaps I will have "dual citizenship" - who can say?

In the dark (clueless), in KW.

About Islam and Sharia Law, Dr. Ben Carson had something to say about it and Muslims holding office in the USA...

I replied:

Islam, as I understand it, which is from a distance, I do not think was contemplated by the Founding Fathers. Nor by the US Constitution. When Amendment 1 was passed.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

My concern about Islam goes back to Genesis, and Abraham and his sons Ishmael and Isaac. 

Isam views Ishmael as the promised son, thus Islam as the chosen people, since Mohammed descended from Ishmael. Judaism and Christendom view Isaac as the promised son, and Israelites as the chosen people, as they descended from Isaac. As did Jesus. According to the Bible.

In Genesis, God told Abraham that Isaac's seed and Ishmael's seed both would become great nations, and Ishmael's seed would cause Issac's seed trouble. I imagine every Muslim is keenly aware of that passage, and my experience is that Christians I have known did not factor in that passage. I never had that discussion with Jews I have known.

What God told Abraham about his two son's descendents certainly has proven out, although back many centuries, the Christian crusaders caused Islam a great deal of trouble in the so-called Holy Land.

The Crusades aside, the fundamental differences between Judaism, Christianity and Islam (the youngest descendant of Abraham) are vast. Each religion essentially believes it is God's chosen people, thus God's vessel on this planet.

I can tell you this. That in the inner city Southern Baptist Church where my parents grew up, and both of their fathers were deacons, and where I attended services 1995-99, after the church had gone through considerable loosening up and liberalization, including welcoming gays, blacks, asiatics, hispanics, they still believed Christendom was the chosen religion, but they figured God had some kind of plan for Jews, because they were the chosen people in the Old Testament. Islam was not a factor in that church.

Isam views all other religions as infidel and Mohammed as the last prophet of God. Muslim jihadists actually believe they do God's will by killing infidels. I think its nice that Ben Carson can discuss Islam and Sharia law with Muslims, but I think the discussion is moot, because I don't see Americans accepting a Muslim candidate for president, and I do not see the Democrats daring to run a Muslim candidate, even if the candidate is totally opposed to Sharia law, which I think is about as holy as the Christian crusades over 1,000 years ago.

After sleeping maybe 3 hours, I emailed Sancho:

A dream after 3 a.m., I finally arose at 3:30 a.m., 3 is the number for the Holy Spirit in my lexicon, the Divine Feminine, left me thinking maybe I shoulda kept my big mouth shut about Sharia law. So I read Wikipedia on Sharia law. 

Women get the shaft in lots of ways, under Sharia. Reminds of Salem witch trials and St. Paul's view of women being beneath men in relationship to Christ. 

Homosexuals get death penalty under Sharia. Women who commit adultery, likewise. Men rapists can get off if they marry their female victim. No such thing as abortion. Men are favored witnesses in court proceedings, and one man's testimony is given greater weight than one woman's.

Testimony is allowed not under oath, then at the end of the case, after all testimony, one party can require the other to take oath, which tends, it seems, to result in many cases being thrown out because the accuser declined to take the oath and blaspheme God. 

Sharia merges state with religion. Which seems to be what the religious right in America want to do. Strike "seems to be" and substitute "is". 

Adios 1st Amendment. Hello God is made in MAN's image. Literally. Women are chattels, like oxen, sheep, goats. My daughters and their daughters. Some man's personal property. No equal treatment for them vs men under the law. 

Sharia is complex. Not simply laid out like the 10 Commandments. But a hodgepodge of parts of the Quran and handed-down rules and religious court decisions, which trump any human legislation; makes a mockery out of democracy; is banned in a number of non-Muslim countries; and not recognized by the UN, which really riles up Muslim conservatives. 

Kinda reminds of Roy Moore and his ilk. 

And of the Christian Puritans in the old movie, "Rain", which I had to stop watching the other night, when my landlords and friends watched it, because I have had all of religious right-wing Christian terrorism I can take. 

Perhaps even American evangelical women would rise up in revolt over Sharia law being imposed on them, even though their counterpart in the movie, "Rain", seemed real happy with her lot under her guru minister husband's version of Sharia. Until he succumbs to his true nature and has sex with the prostitute (Joan Crawford) he had set out to save, and she did repent, but after he killed himself, she unrepented.

From Wikipedia:
A westbound ship en route to ApiaSamoa, is temporarily stranded at nearby Pago Pago due to a possible cholera outbreak on board. Among the passengers are Alfred Davidson, a self-righteous missionary, his wife, and Sadie Thompson, a prostitute. Thompson passes the time partying and drinking with the American Marines stationed on the island. Sergeant Tim O'Hara, nicknamed by Sadie as "Handsome", falls in love with her.
Her wild behavior soon becomes more than the Davidsons can stand and Mr. Davidson confronts Sadie, resolving to save her soul. When she dismisses his offer, Davidson has the Governor order her deported to San Francisco, California, where she is wanted for an unspecified crime (for which she says she was framed). She begs Davidson to allow her to remain on the island a few more days – her plan is to flee to Sydney, Australia. During a heated argument with Davidson, she experiences a religious conversion and agrees to return to San Francisco and the jail sentence awaiting her there.
The evening before she is to leave, Sergeant O'Hara asks Sadie to marry him and offers to hide her until the Sydney boat sails, but she refuses. Later, while native drums beat, the repressed Davidson satisfies his lust with Sadie. The next morning he is found dead on the beach – a suicide. Davidson's hypocrisy and betrayal cause Thompson to return to her old self and she goes off to Sydney with O'Hara to start a new life.

Under Sharia law, Sadie, which I think means married lady in Yiddish, would be stoned. As would, I suppose, every female stripper in Key West. And every gay, lesbian, bi, trans. Alcohol and tobacco would be banned. As would bikinis and thongs and Fantasy Fest. Key West's economy would dry up until it was anointed the western Mecca or Medina, and a haj destination. Maybe all women in Key West would be required to have their clitoris surgically removed.

I still don't see a Muslim being president, nor even the Democrats drafting one as their candidate.

I still think immigration from Muslim countries should be stopped, because there is no way to reliably screen out sleeper Muslim terrorists. And no way to screen out sleeper Muslim sharia law fanatics. 

America already is plagued by Christian religious extremism, which backs a president who kinda reminds me of Muslim sheikhs who get around Sharia fornication laws, like Roy Moore, Mormons and Israelites of old, by having as many wives and concubines as they can afford.

Even Abraham had a concubine, Hagar, chosen for Abraham by his wife, Sarah, who was barren and wanted Abraham to have the son God had promised him.

Hagar gave birth to Ishmael.

Sarah planned, God laughed, when she got pregnant and had Isaac, and here we are.

You write like a man possessed!  I too have daughters I worry about in a country ran amok with partisan strife and myopic, selfish thinking but that's a problem THEY will have to deal with... our watch is almost over!   Religious Orthodoxy is the calcification of thought... for heaven's sake! 
My homeless vodka addict seer girlfriend Kari Dangler called me this morning from the local hospital, where she has been sitting by her homeless alcoholic addict friend Joe's beside. Joe's body is about done give out, but he's not resolved about leaving this life. Joe's been in the hospital a good while and they want him to leave, but he has no place to go, and putting him out to live on the street in his condition probably would kill him.

Kari said she had a horrible headache in her left temple, and she seldom gets headaches. Left is the male side of the brain, the rational side. I told her to be quiet and let me try something and for her to watch the headache and tell me if it changed.

I went inside of myself and opened to her headache and Joe, and waited. Kari said the headache was moving down her spine. Then, it was gone. Weird.

I called her an ignorant Missouri hick, again. I call myself an ignorant Alabama hick, plenty.

She laughed.

I said it looked to me that she is there with Joe to help him move on. Modern medicine is not geared up for that, it still thinks it is supposed to try to save everyone from dying. Maybe someday that will change. Religion also has a lot to learn. Humanity, too.

Kari said she might never see me again. 

I said this trip to Alabama is a scouting trip, I will come back to Key West. I have stuff down here that I need, which is not going with me on this trip. And, I have not yet left. A dream last night caused me to wonder if I should go to Alabama? The dream could have been about what I wrote to Sancho about. It could have been both. Maybe I will be able to get in a nap and see more clear. I will call and let you know.

Stay tuned.

homelessness, sexual child abuse, addiction, religious and political extremism, and where else do ya suppose Hell actually is located?

A dream before the dawn's early light this morning left me thinking maybe I can wind up my tour of duty in reporting and commenting on the Key West homeless trenches sector of Hell.

I figured the dream was prompted by three emails from Mike Tolbert, the former manager of Key West's homeless shelter, responding to what I had reported about him and the city's homeless shelter in yesterday's hyena sightings in Key West and D.C. post at this website. 

The text of Tolbert's 1st 3 emails:
photo from Mike Tolbert's Facebook page

(1) I have a lifestyle I have rent I have to work for a living I was working I was watching while I was driving back from Key Largo right now I'm on Seven Mile Bridge I just dropped 5 homeless guys up a marathon to work all day and what are you doing what I thought f*** you

(2) And don't worry your little head about me I ain't done yet the legal wrangling  ain't even started they wine all they want what Casey said he never knew about that list he knows even less about the phone full text I got from John and how John said you still have a job now don't write the board again and then I wrote the board and he fired me that's called retaliatory whistleblower offence offense they don't know how to work John was they're going to find out though I was just waiting for him to leave to drop a lawsuit I don't give a f*** who it hurts I'm going to come out smelling like a motherfuking rose no matter what f*** the dumb s***yep careful what you wish for why you think I was in Key Largo this morning I only had to go to Marathon I had to go drop money on my attorney in Key Largo watch the newspapers around my birthday April 27th I told her I wanted to file around my birthday for a present oops so go back to being a dick head while I go back to living life I  hop shal Insurance is still up to date

(3) Here's a little gym I'm saving for a better time. Underneath every bed platform at kots is a half inch of black mold can't pressure wash under their worth a s*** without blowing the beds up so it never got done just the one time I did it. I want to drop that on the homeless guys and let them get a class-action going see I'm a smart redneck two prong attack

I replied:

What the fuck am I doing, Mike? I'm trying all the dirtbags put in front of me, including you and me, in God's court, which ain't nothing like human courts, cause lying ain't allowed and what everybody really thought and did, and didn't think and do, is in plain view.

I look forward to reading all about your whistleblower lawsuit against SHAL in the Key West Citizen and your buddy Gwen Filosa's articles at the Keynoter, where citizens are allowed to chime in. 

Might be your Key Largo lawyer ain't too excited about your case, if you are having to pay her to take it on. If she thought she was going to get you a big money damage$, she would charge you a percentage or bank on a big court-awarded legal fee. I hope she soak$ you good.

Might be there ain't a lot of damages you can collect from a deadbeat, ass-etless non-profit like Southern Homeless Assistance League. 

Might be YOU darn well ought to hope SHAL has liability insurance that covers violating whistleblower law violations.

Might be you'd have had a much stronger whistleblower case, if you had blown the whistle in one human family pretend city hall and in the local newspapers, instead of to SHAL's one human family pretend board of directors.

Might be there ain't no black mold class action any lawyer with even half a brain would take without homeless people having their doctors saying they were, in fact, injured by black mold. There has to be injury to get money damages in a civil lawsuit.

Might be, if you really gave a shit about the homeless people staying nights at KOTS, you would have filed a black mold complaint with the county health department, city hall and the local newspapers.

Not blowing the whistle on that black mold back when you discovered it under those sleeping platforms, was unconscionable.

I wonder how much money you made off those homeless men you drove to Marathon, to work there?

It's all about Mike reeks.

Maybe if you do sue SHAL, it will pay me as an expert witness to testify against you and against it and against the city, to spread the liability.


Mike emailed back:

OH your Panties are in a WAD I absolutely LOVE it! More Important question Is How much those homeless guys made and are they gonna be better off at independence Cay than In Key west at KOTS or FKOC. Although I have 2 past couple weeks in FKOC too. I  am Helping them get outta KOTS And off the streets. I don't work for a Non profit.. I am not Ripping off Govt grant moneys and performing Worthless service and failed programs. I am helping Guys that know the value of hard work and that appreciate the help. So Keep on living in that make believe world of yours with your perverted twisted little brain. trying to feel important but in actuality your just a stupid ass old man Who is lucky he was not convicted of child molestation.. Poker Run is coming soon. You ready for all those loud noisy Trump voting Harley Riding Guys and girls?  I sure am This oughta Piss you off when I ran KOTS those Bikers donated significant cash VIA our website to SHAL. OH GOD Tainted money from Outlaw 1%er Bikers! I am a BAD MAN going to hell. Well theres a seat in hell for me ASSHOLE its called a THRONE. See you there because your going for sure! 

I replied:

I think it's great you are helping homeless people earn a living, I've told you that several times recently in emails. But you don't do it out of the goodness of your heart. You wrote to me the other day that you are making 6 figures. I really would like to see what you make off them for a day of their hard work. Not holding my breath. Nor did you manage KOTS out of the goodness of your heart. You got paid to do it. I recall when you told me you got promoted to manager and I told you that they should increase your pay because of the added responsibility, and you said you weren't in it for the money, but you got a raise and you didn't give it back. I've been doing free public service work since I arrived in Key West in late 2000. I did it elsewhere before that. I've done it elsewhere since then. If not in this life, in the afterlife, you will see very differently. As will everyone. Including the bikers. Did you tell them yet about you not doing anything about KOTS clients sleeping on top of back mold? How do you figure it goes for SHAL, if they disclose in their grant applications that their homeless clients are sleeping on top of black mold? That KOTS is a great place to catch lice, scabies, MRSA, influenza, TB, hepatitis? It is good that you declare who is your master and where you will reside after you die. People who run with and adore you might wish to give that some thought.

Mike emailed back:

Don't sweat it bro will be seeing you there.

I replied:

I don't know where I'm headed, but if I knew it is where you say you are headed, I'd be sweating plenty.

Mike wrote back:

Dude get real a strong happy sex life is a normal thing. Raping children like u self confessed is  a one way ticket too hell. Baby rapers do not deserve due process.only speedy execution. you cannot fix them

I replied:

Group sex with your wife and local strippers is healthy sex life? What happened to you when you were a kid to turn you in that direction?

I outed myself for molesting my younger sister when i was 15 and had not reached puberty and was insane because of that. It was short duration. There was no repeat with her or any child

You learned about that from me and have been fixated on it ever since. You bring it up whenever I piss you off. This is a classic sign you were sexually molested when you were a kid. Also called projection.

I have a lot of experience working therapeutically with people who were molested in their childhood. Part of the training was being healed of my mother repeatedly molesting me. 

If you are going to beat me up and condemn me to hell as if you are God almighty, do the same to my mother. 

The angels healing of what my mother did to me took several weeks. I emotionally and psychically and physically relived every infraction. Each healing session, lasting perhaps 20 minutes, 2 or 3 of them a day, the angels induced in me, terrified me. If two people were not basically holding my hand as I went through it, I would have gone insane, I suppose. 

Based on all I have read and heard from people I knew well and from mental health practitioners, about 1/2 of American children are sexually molested. You have a huge population to prosecute, Mike. Start with the person who did it to you, which is not me.

I replied:

I told what happened. 

Spinning is you twisting what I told, to suit your own agenda. 

I'm fortunate you are not God, although you seem to talk like you are.

In that way, and in the hedonistic sex way, you remind me of Donald Trump.

Given how he behaves today, I can imagine somebody did something truly awful to him when he was a boy. He reeks of it.

Sloan note:

I had told Mike in an email last week, after he went on and one about me and my sister, again, that he was acting like he was sexually abused in childhood, and many people today were sexually abused in childhood and now do not remember it. 

Most long-term homeless people, booze, drug, sex, gambling, etc. addicts, religious and/or political extremists, violent criminals and/or insane people were sexually abused physically in childhood.

My mother was sexually abused in childhood, not physically, but by her Puritan parents treating her like she was a whore simply because she was a girl.

My mother told me that; and she told my father, if he did not marry her, she would marry any man who would have her and save her from her parents; and after their wedding ceremony, when she was packing to leave with him, one of her girlfriends explained to her what was going to happen that night, which was news to my mother, and into the room walked her mother, who overheard it and got really upset and left in a huff.

I really loved my mother's parents and they really loved me, but they did a horrible religious number on my mother, which played out in her smoking 2 packs of Pall Malls a day from the day she turned 15, to rebel against her parents, she told me; to her being sexually inhibited with my father, she told me; to her becoming a vodka addict; to her dying of lung cancer at age 45 to get a divorce from my father and her parents, which she was not able to do the regular way, because, she told me, she had been told by her mother, "If you divorce Sloan (my father) it will kill me (her mother)."
Moving to the church of the Right Reverend Gwecko W. Phlocker, aka Soundman From Hell, of Key West, testimonials from which were reported in yesterday's hyena sightings in Key West and D.C. post, then the good old time revival shifted gears - maybe the Right Reverend oughtta run for mayor, or president:
"Trump has brought a lot of deadly poison to the surface. But divisiveness, racism and hate? He didn’t create it. It was all already there. He just shined a light on darkness. For that, I’m thankful. He’s terrible, but in a way he might be the best thing that ever happened to us."

Gweko W. Phlocker "The more I view the news of actual current events.....

The More Angry, and Pissed off I have Become."
Reverend Gweko
Sloan Bashinsky Go back to Norway, I hear it's a lot nicer.๐Ÿคฃ
Gweko W. Phlocker Sloan Bashinsky - It's a Model Country, but I'm from Malmรถ, Sweden
Sloan Bashinsky Where did I get the notion you are from Hell, Norway?

Gweko W. Phlocker You believe what you see on Facebook ?Manage

Deno Brandon I thought Hell was Michigan ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

p.s. most of Gweko’s neighbors agree with me.

Gweko W. Phlocker Facebook does not recognize Hell, Michigan.
But they do allow the SOUNDMAN from HELL from Hell, Norway....
It's a Train Station.
....actually -
I am from Miami !
(aka Hell)

Deno Brandon I’m in Hell, Ohio, but we renamed it Dayton...which might be Hell in Norwegian.

Deno Brandon And Hell is fucking COLD, lemme tell ya!

Sloan Bashinsky Thank you for elucidating my ignorance. Some church you pastor.

Sloan Bashinsky Gosh, that's a relief, you are not that kind of reverend ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Key West has such reverends, though, believe it or not.

Quite a place.

As for mayor, attending the first parts of Wednesday night's city commission meeting was like being in an insane asylum. I got so tired of it that I just up and flew right out of that cuckoo's nest and missed what I later learned might have been the best part, which was when the local SPCA folks defended trying to get out of paying the 1 percent Arts in Public Places fee for their new $8 million Taj Mahal animal shelter, by saying they had gotten all of their contractors and subcontractors to discount their work on the new facility, meaning, I suppose, that it might actually cost $9 million, or more.

As for our great white hope in D.C., I wonder how his evangelist base will field this ?
Sloan Bashinsky Then, there is Trump's very own deep throat, Steve Bannon, gagging on his own wagging tongue. Oprah interviews Michael Wolff in the video embedded in this article:
Don Brown If people want to know what's going on watch Hannity at 9pm. The corruption in the highest ranks of the FBI and Justice Dept are being exposed with the publishing of the classified memo naming people and acts. Disgusting.
Sloan Bashinsky you have a link for that?
Don Brown Sorry. It's on Comcast right now.
Don Brown That memo is blowing everything wide-open. Holy shit.
Sloan Bashinsky Is there anything new in this?
Deno Brandon I said SAY it, not drink it!
Don Brown There was a classified memo presented to Congress today for the first time. It is a summary document naming corrupt people and actions within the FBI, department of justice and the Clinton campaign. It is broad in scope and deep in depth. They are trying to get it released to the public now.
Sloan Bashinsky a classified document produced by a federal or congressional investigation is one thing, Hannity is something else altogether. Spin doctor would be far too kind for him. I will be looking for the classified document itself to be made public.
Clare King Baloney.

Sloan Bashinsky Rev. Gweko, I nominate you to run for mayor, but then, I think you'd make a great president, maybe Oprah your running mate.
Comic relief from's popular Coconut Telegraph public forum:

[Conspiracyman] Let me be the first to imagine that Saturday’s Hawaii missile alert was intentionally sent by our government to see what people would do in a real nuclear emergency. There’s no way someone pressed or bumped the alert button by accident. I doubt that button is just sitting on a desk waiting to be pushed without some sort of cover or two-step procedure. The button pusher was only transferred and not fired. That’s another reason I think the government set this up; they didn’t want to have him lose his job as long as he keeps his mouth shut. Next year he’ll get a promotion as reward for keeping mum.

Stay tuned.
