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 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 …
