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 [ ] 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 Mission Five Years Ago, And Today

I have spent the night the past two weeks plus at the Union Gospel Mission and am having an excellent time of it -- not only regards to sleeping in the dorm that the mission has, but also listening to the sermons that are delivered in the early evening. The Christmas music that is performed is also splendid. [And the food -- the FOOD -- has been fantastic during my stay so far! A happier Tom there couldn't be.] I chatted with a pal last night about The Mish – about how things were about five years ago when we both used the mission’s services frequently, and how thing are, today.
Five years ago, there were a lot scuffles between the guys when the front gate was opened in the early afternoon and in the area near the contact window there were some brawls as guys fought over where guys were in line to get a bed in the dorm.
Nowadays, however, the mission is very much a peaceful place both on the grounds of the facility and and out on the street.
I do not know what transformative eve…

Homeless Sacramentans lose case that would have given them the right to set up outdoor camping

8/11/13 I certainly give attorneys Mark Merin and Cat Williams credit for pursuing a case against the city of Sacramento to give homeless Sacramentans the right to set up tents and a campsite. I wanted them to win their case, but they didn't. They lost it.

BUT, it is also necessary to look at the particulars of the case that Merin and Williams brought and see that the situation underlying the court case was not very compelling.

During the period eight years ago when 22 homeless campers set up their tents and brought in supplies to Mark Merin's vacant lot at C Street, near 12th, there was loud noise and plenty of other mayhem. Drug dealers were on the street encouraging buys from the campers. The Hernandez couple that lived in a house nearby were constantly being taunted by the campers, disrupting their lives.

Per always with Safe Ground camps, calm was deserted for the sake of boisterousness.

Leader John Kraintz and the other Safe Grounders would claim to have signed strict a…

After a Three-Month Hiatus, a Fall from a Ladder & a Broken Wrist, Evangelist Jimmy Roughton Returns to Union Gospel Mission to Preach

After being away from Union Gospel Mission for a quarter of a year, Jimmy Roughton returned to preach at UGM on the cold night of December 13 -- despite suffering [a little? a lot? dunno.] from a fall from a ladder that likely immediately preceded a significant injury (a wrist that was broken).

It was good to see his group from Capital Free Will Baptist Church up on the pulpit, with Roughton rough-and-ready to seduce and inspire the happily-captivate crowd at UGM.

Roughton told us in his opening words that he was now in his 27th year coming to the mission.

I recall the first preaching I had heard from Roughton on June 13, 2009. At that time and up to the current time, Roughton is the only preacher I had ever heard evoke Pascal's Wager -- which is something he would do, occasionally thereafter at the mission. He would evoke Pascal's wager, yet again, last night [12/13/17].

Pascal's wager

Last night, Jimmy evoked Pascal's Wager. He did so near the end of his talk, citing …
