Bidden, such a decent person some say …

Such a decent person, some say …

Joe Biden, such a decent person …..?

Mr. Stephen Kessler refuses to accept history when he writes:  “but for now I’m looking for something to like about Biden beyond his decency as a person..” Oh?

Biden  is the same decent person who has lied about his law school record, plagiarized when there and continued to plagiarize when running for president , stealing from Neal Kinnock a 2d rate British pol.

Finally decent Joe wrongfully accused an innocent man of manslaughter in the death of his wife where the innocent man was cleared and the then Mrs. Biden was at fault. The innocent man and family suffered for decades and Biden ignored their pleas to stop slandering their  father and husband.
A rape accusation and the enriching of his relatives remain shrouded in mystery where the press remains silent about investigating decent Joe.

Better safe than sorry? Why Resurrection Church Aptos CA must remodel Markey Community Center ASAP

Better safe than sorry?  Why Resurrection Church Aptos CA  must remodel their Community Center ASAP.

Tom Hogan, a member of the parish,  spoke  at Resurrection Church 3/23/2000 on Why Now and How the Remodel of Markey Community Center will proceed.  Tom Hogan is on the Steering Committee guiding the remodel effort.  He  detailed the necessary safety issues which must be addressed.

The hub for Resurrection Church — their community center — requires extensive  changes to make it safe for volunteers, staff and the persons served. Resurrection Church provides many ministries to youth, seniors and vulnerable persons.

One vulnerable person served:  Many non-profit organizations including Boy Scouts use the Community Center to provides services used by the Aptosian community.  Click  Here for a brief  video of a Boy Scout project located on Resurrection’s grounds which, when the video was taken, provides temporary  shelter for a homeless person.

Why is the proposed remodel of  Resurrection Church’s community center so expensive?   Safety is the prime reason for the expensive remodel:  the expected  cost    $5.5 MILLION.

Safety issues:   Resurrection Church’s community center is a  55 year old building, separate from the church proper, which has asbestos in the walls and ceiling and  paint with lead in it  on the walls.  The building floods on occasion due to stormy weather.  Recently, a large tree fell one corner of Markey Community Center, disabling the Center for a few days and  ‘yellow tagging’  Resurrection Church’s  children’s playground which is currently not safe to use.   Volunteers and staff need to be able to exit safely should there be an emergency such a as  a dangerous person confronting them.  them.  Federal  OSHA law requires exit routes be mantaotry.  The ceiling requires a sprinkler system.  The bathrooms need to meet health codes and must  be safe for persons in wheel chairs.

Resurrection Church has THE PLAN which it has been following to gather the necessary money needed prior to start of construction.  For information on Resurrection Church’s website click HERE for the Resurrection Catholic Church 2020 Campaign.

THE PLAN:  

  1. Identify  prospects  who can make  large  Leader Gifts.   So far, parishioners have given large and smaller gifts totaling  $1 MILLION of the $5.5 needed. About 1/2 the Goal towards Leader Gifts has been met.   
  2.  Identify  prospects for Foundation Grants.  This is ongoing.  As of 3/15/2000 no Foundations have said Yes.
  3. Identify prospects for Community (business) Gifts.
  4. Contact the parish members who have not yet given

This post will be updated when more information becomes available.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic  Resurrection Church was required by the Diocese to cancel   the  meeting for Volunteers scheduled for today 3/14/2000.   Also,  the Church was required to cancel various fundraisers including Sunday Icecream Social and Eat, Drink and Give.

Resurrection Church’s grounds include places for repose,  places  to sit and enjoy the beauty  of the setting. One such spot I call Art from the Heart located in front of the Handicapped Parking.  Click Here for a brief video of Art from the Heart.

Over kill reaction to corona virus? 40 have died …half from one facility

Overkill reactions n to the corona virus?   Are you hoarding toilet paper?  Hiding toilet paper in your safe?  Come on now ….

Roughly  40 persons in the  USA have died from the Corona virus, about half who died are in one nursing home in Seattle, Washington.

The most vulnerable to succumb to the virus  are older  persons over 60 with respiratory issues and chronic illnesses. Roughly half of those who have died are from one facility in Seattle, WA.

One local Santa Cruz MD predicts that one MILLION persons in the USA alone  will die from the virus.  Based on what facts?  That’s an overkill reaction.

What does  make  sense to do:

  1.   regularly and frequently  wipe down using disinfectant wipes those   surfaces people frequently touch  (door knobs, church pews, tables, railings)
  2.  regularly and frequently wash hands 20 seconds with soap and water
  3. practice ‘social distancing’ so less exposed to coughs
  4. stay home when  sick or think you are getting sick

The stock market plunged down to levels where there are good stocks to buy.   One area to consider are consumer goods companies which produce disinfectant wipes.  For example,  Clorox wipes are  made by a CA company  with 8,000 employees. Clorox is a a subsidiary of Proctor and Gamble.  So — why not  invest in America’s need for more disinfectant wipes to keep surfaces clean?  The Motley Fool recommended buying Proctor and Gamble today 3/12/2000.

Socialized murder kills people

 

socialized medicine killed Princess Diana as France has no trauma specialists and she was left in the tunnel over an hour

Princess Diana died because of socialized medicine.

Author Dr. David Schneider, an orthopedic surgeon from Colorado, explained how with socialized medicine, wait times for care “are disastrous.” In Canada, the wait time to see a specialist is two years, and then another two years to get the procedure.

“People in this country would go crazy if you were told you had to wait four months,” he said.

Then he explained how Princess Diana would be alive today, if not for socialized medicine. “Princess Diana was in the car accident in France,” he explained. “They actually don’t have any trauma specialists in France.”

“For the first hour after that accident, she was still in that tunnel,” he continued. “And after an hour, they took her to a nearby hospital and she was alive for another three hours and they couldn’t control the bleeding from her pulmonary artery.”

Schneider explained that “there were no trauma-trained people there.

Know it all ladies of The View  support  jobs for Biden’s family in govt

Ignorant know it all.  After Joe Biden’s shocking victories on Super Tuesday the ladies of The View are already finding jobs for Joe’s family members in government.

Certainly, Hunter Biden will find himself a job.

 

Whoopi Goldberg on Wednesday pushed for Jill Biden to be the next Surgeon General, saying, “She’s  a hell of a doctor.”

Jill Biden has  master degrees  in education —  no degrees in  medicine.
Democrats don’t care.

Veterans Day gun salute at U of Virginia cancelled: gun violence concerns

 Oh spare me the violence of a 21 gun salute ….

The University of Virginia canceled the 21-gun salute portion of its annual Veterans Day ceremony – citing gun violence.

James Ryan, the university’s president, posted a statement on Facebook explaining that there were concerns about firing weapons on school property in light of recent school shootings.

He said there were two specific reasons.

“First, to minimize disruptions to classes, given that this event is located at the juncture of four primary academic buildings and is held at a time that classes are in session; and second, recognizing concerns related to firing weapons on the Grounds in light of gun violence that has happened across our nation, especially on school and university campuses,” the president wrote.

Liz Warren schools us …. [she cracks down on school choice]

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren is pledging to crack down on school choice if elected, despite the fact that she sent her own son to an elite private school, publicly available records show.

The 2020 presidential candidate’s public education plan would ban for-profit charter schools — a proposal first backed by Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders — and eliminate government incentives for opening new non-profit charter schools, even though Warren has praised charter schools in the past.

“To keep our traditional public school systems strong, we must resist efforts to divert public funds out of traditional public schools,” Warren stated in her plan.

Warren has pledged to reduce education options for families, but she chose to send her son Alexander to Kirby Hall, an elite private school near Austin. Tuition for Kirby Hall’s lower and middle schools — kindergarten through eighth grade — is $14,995 for the 2019-2020 school year. A year of high school costs $17,875.

new family values [LGBT sex-ed curriculum in Austin]

New  family values imposed in Austin, Texas:   Parents Outraged at Austin’s New Sex-Ed Curriculum That Trains Children to Become LGBT Activists

The Austin Independent School District (ISD) school board approved a radical new sex-education curriculum for grades 3-8 that encourages all kinds of sex at young ages, urges kids to join LGBT “pride” parades, and aims to redefine biological sex and erase the words “mom” and “dad” from children’s vocabulary.

More than 100 people testified against the new curriculum on Monday night, and testimony lasted until after midnight. Yet the school board unanimously approved the new curriculum.

“This vote by the Austin ISD Board sends a clear message: people of faith and traditional moral values are not welcome in Austin ISD,” David Walls, vice president of Texas Values and a parent in Austin ISD, said in a statement. “By passing this curriculum, Austin ISD has broken the sacred trust that parents put in their children’s schools. Austin ISD parents have no reason to entrust their children to a school district that weaponizes education to indoctrinate children into the LGBT political movement.”

In a document revealing the radical nature of the curriculum, Texas Values drew attention to materials for the Grades 3-5 curriculum that encourage children to abandon the terms “mother” and “father” or “mom” and “dad.”

“Use Gender Inclusive Language,” the curriculum advises teachers. “It is important to avoid terms which refer only to ‘male’ and ‘female’ identities when speaking with young children as this can limit their understanding of gender into binaries and can exclude children who may not identify within these identities. For example, when discussing family members or adults they may have in their life, try not to only use terms like ‘mom’ or ‘dad’. Try integrating words like, ‘parents’ or, ‘guardians’ to include children whose parents might not fit into ‘traditional’ concepts of family structures.”

Annrae Angel or Ari Symons for Santa Cruz judge in 2020?

Annrae Angel says why she — not Ari  Symons — should get your vote for  Santa Cruz County Superior Court Judge in 2020 elections.  Egregious conduct by  judge Symons running a red light    is the issue,  says Angel.

Attorney Annrae Angel  spoke  10/30/19 at the  monthly meeting of  Santa Cruz Repbulicans. 

Read  “the facts” of  the Symons case  as  gathered by the CA state    government Commission on Judicial Performance.    The Commission  meets  behind closed doors  and  allows  no questioning of “the facts”  before reaching their “conclusions”. Closed door proceedings without input raise multiple  red flags for me.

Should you,   as I do,  think this Commission has overstepped it bounds, tell them what you think. See the form which you can fill out complaining about a judge.    How to complain to the government entity which appears to target people wrongly?  Petition your government.

Ari Symons said that  she  ran the red light. Think  of the Simon game  many people have played.

Ari Symons clicked the Red and  played  the game straight.    ‘I did it!’ she told people immediately.   Symons   told co-workers  the truth.  She ran the red.

When someone says repeatedly that they did it, that they ran the red light and that the  moving vehicle  violation ticket is their –how can that be a viewed  by the  watch dog  government entity  as a  ‘cover up’ or considered  ‘egregious behavior’?

Rather, overall this appears to be  the Democrats  in Sacramento targeting an individual.   Perhaps it would be better if CA was not run by the Democrats?

Per the “facts” as stated  by the Commission, Ari Symons told  co-workers that  she  ran a red light   that morning.   Some time  later Symons  wrote  letters saying she was the one who ran the red light. Later, things got   muddled between spouse Michael and wife Ari. Not every spouse does what the other spouse wants, correct?  So says Symons concerning overall handling of the red ticket.       Ari Symons   made mistakes how the matter was handled.   Symons   has admitted her mistakes.

Aptos Psychologist:   These facts and the others listed by the Commission for Judicial Performance    don’t add up to “egregious conduct” by  Ari  Symons.

And,  the CA state  government should not get away with wrongful behavior.    Come on, government Commission for Judicial Performance   Do  better! Or disband, re-group,  and  re-fresh your standards.  Don’t target individuals.  Play the game straight.

This entity. the  Commission on Judicial Performance,  meets  in San Francisco Dec. 4-5, 2019 and Jan 29-30, 2020.  Phone:   415 557-1200  FAX 415 557-1266 Three members   of the Commission — Nishimura, Capozzi and Torres — can be replaced immediately as they have exceeded the number of years they can serve.

Tell our state  government   to add new members to the Commission on Judicial Performance  who will act honestly and with integrity.  Make sense?
