Vile Loaves & Fishes' con-the-public effort in their July newsletter

The always-vile Loaves & Fishes Administration is unflagging in being their contemptuous-weasels selves.

Their latest newsletter plucks heartstrings in its effort to get into citizens’ wallets while the scumdogs that run Loaves & Fishes are baldface hypocrites -- certain to be swept away one day to the lower reaches of fiery Hell [That is, if there is such a place as Hell. I’m Buddhist and dubious, but hopeful.]

Highlights from the lead article in their July Newsletter are as follows [You can read the whole thing, yourself, here or here]:
Sacramento is a brutal place to be homeless in the summer. The temperature soars well past 100 degrees on day after day. Our guests walk long distances on hot pavements to get to shelters, to hidden nooks and crannies where they can bed down for the night, to doctor’s appointments or to Social Security and employment offices. For those who must live outside, there’s no respite from the soaring temperatures. Spirits flag and tempers erupt under the oppressive heat.

[And, there is this embolded paragraph near the end of their message where, in their snakey way they reach into purses and wallets.]

We need your help to keep our doors open through the summer. We are very, very worried because donations have been down so far this year. We know that we are all sobered by Sacramento’s continuing recession, but, on behalf of our guests, we beg you to help if you are in a position to do so.
Your generosity has always sustained us. We neither seek nor accept any government funding, but instead rely upon the “bank of faith,” your individual decision to help “the least amongst us.”

Last year, on July 4, 2011, the temperature in Sacramento reached into the 100s I was told -- and weather records confirm it. See graph at right, taken from the internet.

Of course, July 4, 2011, was a holiday and the need for Friendship Park to be open was great. Other businesses were closed for the holiday, leaving homeless people stuck, having nothing to do; no place to put their physical selves. Though the staff was in place and the promise was that the park would be open, it was closed at whim shortly after the beginning of the day.

The violin playing by Loaves & Fishes to steal Sacramento citizens' money is abhorrent. It is contemptuous and the height of hypocrisy by some of the worst human beings that ever took a breath. A year ago, it was perfectly fine, from the comfortable perspective of L&F Administraitors sucking on pina coladas, to leave the homeless roasting in the heat.

But today, with similar circumstances, they whip out the violins to get money for THEIR coffers to do who-knows-what? Add another building to their empire? Give the staff membership to a spa or a vacation in Palm Springs? Or send Libby to play around, again, in Washington DC? For THESE WEASELS to call the homeless "the least amongst us" is laughable. The Admistraitors of Loaves & Fishes are, certainly, the least honorable, least truthful, least honest, least respectful, least caring, least aware and most communist people in all of Sacramento. If you want to help the "the least amongst us," paying for the Administraitors at Loaves & Fishes to get psychiatric help is, perhaps, something citizens could and should do.

But DON'T give 'em money. They don't use it responsibly. They're addicted to Empire Building.

Note at the end of the quote up-top in this post they brag about not seeking or accepting government funding. This is true. They don't want the government to be aware of their failures to meet minimal nutritional and safety guidelines. But, for all the buildings they have in their 'compound,' they do not refuse the exemption to having to pay property tax they get as a 501(c) charity. Like Romney, they exploit every rule and then use Orwellian double-speak to misdirect the public.

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…
