SafeGround is UnSafe

Below is text for a flyer to be distributed at the so-called Safe Ground [or, SafeGround] Jubilee on Sept 14.
An article, written by SG Activist Tracy Rice Bailey, about the 'Jubilee' appeared in the August issue of the People's Tribune. The People's Tribune is published by the League of Revolutionaries for a New America [formerly, the Communist League] which also publishes Rally, Comrades!. [click on pic to enlarge.]


While SafeGround does good things, far the most notable being its involvement in promoting and staffing shelter for homeless people on, mostly, church properties in the county, the group also has the most unsavory and Orwellian of political connections and a history of greatly helping core members while falsely promoting itself as the voice of all Sacramento-area homeless folk.

At the time of its foundation, a so-called “Safe Ground Movement” was cited as central to the nonprofit’s efforts by the Homeless-Services-Industry FarFarFarLeftist fringe and their lawyers.  This political “movement,”  in close association with The League of Revolutionaries for a New America , seeks – I kid you not – a One World totalitarian government.  At their website [ http://lrna.org/program.html ] you can read this:

The demands of this new impoverished class for food, housing, education, health care and an opportunity to contribute to society are summed up as the demand for a cooperative society. Such a society must be based on the public ownership of the socially necessary means of production and the distribution of the social product according to need.

The new class cannot solve its economic problems without the public ownership of the socially necessary means of production and the distribution of the social product according to need. For the first time an objective communist economic class is forming to become the foundation for a communist political movement.

Globalization creates this new class everywhere. Global unity is the condition of its national emancipation. The League extends its hand of comradeship around the globe.

In cooperation with their commune-ist and Communist superiors homeless members of SafeGround have organized a "Homeless Forum" featuring League of Revolutionaries for a New America speakers, gone to Communist street protests in San Francisco, and, last year, went to a big Communist meeting in Detroit.

Unless you think that North Korea or the Soviet Union is a beautiful example of what you would like to see in a One World Government, I ask, on behalf of many -- if not the great majority -- of Sacramento Homeless people, that you NOT donate to the organizations SafeGround, Loaves & Fishes or SHOC.  Your money will be used in significant part to promote Looney Tunes political objectives.

The devastating effects of schizophrenia in one man's life

A powerful story of the deteriorating life and death of once-respectable Sacramento citizen, Mike Lehmkuhl,  is told by  reporter Cynthia Hubert in Sunday’s [7/31/16] Bee.
Lehmkuhl is described as a very likable guy with a sometimes-goofy personality that went along with a formidable intelligence. He was a “standout wrestler” in high school and an “accomplished gymnast at Sacramento State” where he graduated and then got into the building trade before going on to run a contracting business and have a home proximate to Country Club Plaza.
Friends describe him as being “happy” and “sanguine” at that time in his life, when he was about age 50.
But, by 2011, when Lehmkuhl was 53, he was hearing voices in his head and his life began to fall apart. He tumbled into a homeless life, combatting demons in his head that spoke to him. The Hubert piece provides a comprehensive picture of a good man beset by a devastating condition: schizophrenia. Lehmkuhl had good friends and loyal family members…

Homelessness and Remembrance

This is a follow-up on the matter of remembering homeless people who have died and the Wall that Libby Fernandez wants to build in remembrance of the deceased. [See earlier blogpost "Tell Libby NOT to build her wall."]

This blogpost is prompted by a Philosophy Bites podcast released in the last couple days -- titled "C├ęcile Fabre on Remembrance." Fabre's take on why we honor or grieve for certain individuals or certain collections of individuals is not greatly helpful -- since his focus is mainly one of fallen war heroes and war casualties -- but it does open up the issue of why should there be a remembrance effort for deceased homeless people at all. Who is served by it? And has the effort been perverted by the avarice of charities in their insatiable drive for donations.

It is, for starters, a curious thing for "homeless people" to be a collective that is honored. I write that NOT because I don't want the best for homeless people. But, homelessn…

The first-person dimension of homeless Sacramentans suffering from Schizophrenia

"Disabilities and dysfunction process from having been shunned and denied access to needed opportunitites and networks of support."
~ the brothers Lysaker in Schizophrenia and the Fate of the SelfWhat is schizophrenia? How many are homeless Sacramentans?

Perhaps 15% of the Sacramento homeless population suffers from schizophrenia. The percentage is difficult to determine for many reasons that branch from both the fuzzy definition of the malady and that many people within the homeless community who have the illness (1) are in denial and are undiagnosed and (2) have the illness as a diagnosis only – the disability can be faked by people who are successful claimants of social security and other benefits.

What is schizophrenia? One webspace gives us this definition: The most chronic and disabling of the severe mental disorders. Typically develops in the late teens or early twenties. The overt symptoms are hallucinations (hearing voices, seeing visions), delusions (false beliefs ab…
