“There is no longer a capital; it is a cesspit…the streets are filthy, there are piles of stinking rubbish in the courtyards. It hurts me to say how bad things have become. There is growing idleness and cowardice in the people and those base criminal instincts…it seems they are destroying Russia.” -Gorky on the state of St. Petersburg during the Russian Revolution-
If you set down your cell phone and observe the streets of Los Angeles, you should be shitting your pants. As Alex Turner sings, “What do you mean you’ve never seen Blade Runner?” It’s only a matter of time before it’s full-on Mad Max, which is why so many are plotting their Escape from LA.

Ozzy Osborne just announced that he is relocating from Beverly Hills back to England. The Black Sabbath frontman wants to die in peace. Ozzy cited the constant fear of violence as his reason for packing up. Even from the privileged hills, people in LA are scared for their lives.
A former NASCAR driver, Bobby East was murdered by a homeless man while pumping gas next to an In and Out Burger in Westminster, California. Westminster is in suburban North Orange County, where the largest concentration of Vietnamese resides in the United States. After the fall of Saigon in 1975, many refugees escaped Communist political re-education camps and settled in Westminster hoping that the horrors of Communism were behind them forever.
East was murdered by a man who according to one report was known by law enforcement to frequent local motels. The city of Long Beach just received a $31 million dollar grant and acquired a similar motel. These tax dollars will house people like East’s murderer that are homeless and high on methamphetamine. The police caught up with East’s murderer and ended his life with a bullet.
A former U.S. Olympic athlete, Kim Glass was smashed in the face with a metal pipe in Downtown Los Angeles in an unprovoked attack by a delusional homeless person. Glass was just walking out of a restaurant after lunch when she was brutally attacked.
A UCLA student, Brianna Kupfer was stabbed to death at work by a mentally disturbed man. Her murderer just casually walked into the furniture store where she worked and bludgeoned her to death. He had never met or had an encounter with Brianna. Her murderer didn’t even steal anything.
After the savage act, Brianna’s killer was spotted walking down the street with a COVID mask and a stuffed backpack. That description fits the majority of homeless people living off the land in Los Angeles. They roam on bikes, and skateboards, squat in tents, and sprawl out on the sidewalks among the rats and cockroaches. They sleep in doorways and camp out on the public beaches. The homeless you have to fear usually wear COVID masks to hide their identity. Almost always, they are carrying a backpack with all of their life possessions.
Gabriel Donnay was a 30-year-old man who was stabbed to death by a trespassing homeless young man. Gabriel was a very talented young man and was in town to visit his parents. Gabriel’s family owned a home in the Beverly Glen area, which is between LAX and West LA. The median house cost in Beverly Glen is well over $1.5 million dollars.
On March 21, 2021, residents of Beverly Glen called the police multiple times about a homeless man hopping fences and harassing residences. California Penal Code Section 602, defines the crime of criminal trespass as “entering and remaining on someone else’s property without permission of a right to do so.”
The police detained Gabriel’s murderer and let him go. Tragically, only a few hours later the same homeless person they let go for Penal Code Section 602 violation, savagely killed Gabriel. The deranged young man then took his own life with the same sharp object.
A wrongful death case filed by Gabriel’s family against the LAPD claims that the LAPD assured residents of the Beverly Glen area that they were safe from the transient jumping fences in their backyards and harassing them. After assurances of safety were given by the LAPD, Gabriel was stabbed to death. Gabriel’s death could have been prevented like so many others in Los Angeles only if LA District Attorney George Gascon enforced the laws. Instead Gascon and his corporate partners are using the homeless like Communists used the working class during the Russian Revolution to build their utopia.
Los Angeles District Attorney George Gascon decreed on his first day that the DA’s office would not prosecute the crimes of trespassing and resisting arrest. Had the LAPD cops enforced the trespassing offense, Gabriel would still be alive.
The streets of LA are filled with meth addicts. In LA meth addicts are turning into murderers and terrorizing innocent people at an alarming rate.
On December 23, 2021, an innocent little girl, Valentina Orellana Peralta, 14 years old was out Christmas shopping with her mother at a Burlington Coat Factory in the San Fernando Valley. Valentina was in the dressing room when the police arrived to deal with a deranged man harassing and assaulting customers.
The perpetrator was fueled by methamphetamine and in a rage. Inside the store, the freak was wielding a bike lock. He attacked two random women unprovoked within the store. The LAPD arrived at the scene to a call of a homeless man assaulting customers with a deadly weapon.
Everyone was terrified even the officer that first arrived. The officer discharged a round at the unarmed assailant. The officer’s first shot missed and it struck and killed Valentina in a dressing room. The next bullet killed Valentina’s real murderer, the freak on meth attacking customers. Reports indicate Valentina’s murderer had methamphetamine in his system.
Valentina’s family fled Chile to avoid violence and injustice. Her grieving family is now suing the LAPD for wrongful death. Among other things, they are alleging that the LAPD ordered Valentina’s mother to leave the dressing room and her dying daughter. Imagine being peeled away from your dying child by the police officer that put a bullet in her. The sense of coldness under Gascon’s regime is real.
The common connection that smashed Kim’s face with a metal pipe, and killed Valentina, Bobby, Gabriel, and probably Brianna is methamphetamine. So long as meth remains in LA, the bodies are going to keep dropping.
It is not just the random attacks and murders, but all that comes with the homeless occupying public spaces unchecked. All crime in LA is up. You constantly have to be on guard. The homeless have open drug markets, where they can sit all day high or come down. The homeless are crusty shells of humans lingering outside your apartment building. They are pimps and prowlers at the public toilets. Many are deranged addicts that require inpatient psychiatric care. They reside in tents, RVs, and cars, and live at the beach. Their drug needles, trash, poop, and the rank stank of urine are everywhere.
Citizens and inhabitants of Los Angeles live in a perpetual state of fear of the homeless. People are scared because they know at any moment things could pop off. You could be harassed and assaulted at work, pumping gas, or trying on clothes at Burlington Coat Factory.
To residents, it is apparent that law enforcement has lost the battle for Los Angeles. Most of the cops that I know and speak with say that the streets of LA are lost. The cops are instructed by their superiors to leave the homeless alone and to only give them warnings. On good authority, the official police policy is to not arrest the homeless and to compel citizens to not press charges.
Police must give three warnings to a homeless person before arresting them for crimes like trespassing, indecent exposure, defecation, urination, “littering, littering, and…” drug crimes. Cops often bully victims to not prosecute the homeless. It is commonplace to hear victims in LA about the homeless and say “the police didn’t do shit, they said their hands were tied.”
In custody, the addict comes down off drugs and could die from withdrawal symptoms. A death in the Los Angeles County Jail equals another wrongful death lawsuit. Thereby causing more civil liability to the massive coffers of the County of Los Angeles by placing addicts in police custody.
Everything LA County does is a cost-benefit analysis. The cities are gaining billions in funding to house deranged drug addicts. They are saving the county from having to deal with addicts in custody. That has become more important than the risk of meth and the deaths of innocents like Gabriel, Valentina, Bobby, and Brianna. In the post-COVID and social media society, it is all about the corporate dollars in California.
The meth quality and quantity in Southern California is some straight-up evil Breaking Bad crystal meth. The meth consumed on the streets is cooked to create psychosis quickly in users. The meth is cut with a smidge of fentanyl so the abuser has withdrawal symptoms quicker. In the courts, any DA or Public Defender will tell you about the alarming number of violent acts associated with Methamphetamine Psychosis.
Suzanne Glasner-Edwards, Ph.D wrote in Methamphetamine Psychosis: Epidemiology and Management that:
“Psychotic symptoms and syndromes are frequently experienced among individuals who use methamphetamine, with recent estimates of up to approximately 40% of users affected. Though transient in a large proportion of users, acute symptoms can include agitation, violence, and delusions, and may require management in an inpatient psychiatric or other crisis intervention setting. In a subset of individuals, psychosis can recur and persist and may be difficult to distinguish from a primary psychotic disorder such as schizophrenia.”
“Methamphetamine abuse…”MA-related psychiatric symptoms are common and include irritability, anxiety, psychosis, and mood disturbances . Prominent psychotic symptoms among MA users include auditory and tactile hallucinations, ideas of reference, and paranoid delusions [7,8], and violent behavior is frequently linked with the latter [see 9].”
I call it “Methamphetamine Metamorphous.” A vulnerable user changes over time from a non-violent person to agitated, irritable, mood disturbances, and then their delusions lead to violence and sometimes murder. The meth addicts need an inpatient facility with psychiatric care but instead are given safe spaces to do their drugs. Over time the addict becomes void of dignity and compassion.
The U.S. House just granted homeless non-profits & local municipalities in Los Angeles $3.6 billion dollars. Those funds are being placed into coffers to become cogged in the pork and stuck in the giant wheel of government. More and more motels are being purchased by cities to house the homeless. The ink has already dried on the contracts and kickbacks.
The saddest thing of all is that the funds allocated to treat the homeless will be wasted. The bodies will continue to drop at an even larger rate because of the meth and fentanyl coming across our open borders.
No one seems to care that the homeless are growing and dying exponentially. The numbers should be scrutinized just as much if not more than the rising numbers of COVID cases.
In 2019, the homeless population of Los Angeles County was 58,936. In 2020, the homeless population in the county grew to 66,433, a 12.7% increase. The year 2021 was skipped due to COVID mandates.
If the Los Angeles homeless count is anything like the city of Long Beach, it is going to be massive. The homeless count determined in Long Beach that 3,296 people experiencing homelessness on Feb. 24, 2022, when the survey was conducted by the city's Health and Human Services Department. The 2020 count found there were 2,034 people experiencing homelessness.
A report published by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health said that 1,988 homeless people died in the county from April 2020 through March 2021, a 56 percent increase from the 12 months before the pandemic began. These people are found dead on sidewalks, OD’d, scraped off the road, savagely stabbed to death, or with malnutrition. Even amongst this death and destruction, the homeless are protected because they are being exploited for billions of dollars
“With so many homeless & criminals in the LBC…”
I spoke with a Long Beach Police Officer about the changes in the community post-Floyd riots. He believed that the Floyd riots in May 2020 brought the homeless into Long Beach in large numbers. Now they just haven’t left because drugs are so readily available and police are not enforcing the laws.
It was the looting and the incentive created by a weak police response that rang the dinner bell for the homeless and criminals to slither into Long Beach. Since the Floyd looting, the local sediment is that it’s too dangerous out here. People want to move out, but they feel there is no place to go.
The police response to the homeless has incentivized their exponential growth. In LA, the coppers no longer control the streets, or at least that’s the sense. Once the streets are lost, it’s going to take a state of emergency to restore them. What becomes the new normal when the streets are taken back?
Long Beach Chief of Police Robert Luna is the Corporate California establishment candidate running for LA Sheriff. Chief Luna announced his candidacy with the promise to fire all unvaccinated deputies. While that might have been popular with his Facebook friends at one-time now no one really cares. People want law and order and not politics.
I wonder if Luna’s campaign promise is an act of loyalty or his subjective zealous belief. Either way, Chief Luna embarrassed himself even more on live TV as Long Beach was burned and looted in May 2020. Chief Luna’s interview was just like the movie Naked Gun when Leslie Neilson instructs everyone to “move along nothing to see here” as fireworks shoot off behind with crazy Hollywood crashes. Only this was real life.
I watched Long Beach looted from the mountains as Chief Luna spoke live and assured citizens on the local news that everything was under control. While on the same screen unknown to Luna, a young man with a hammer was smashing out the store window of a Ross Department Store on Promenade and 3rd Street in Downtown Long Beach. The newscaster did good journalism. She firmly pointed out that on the screen someone was smashing out store windows. Chief Luna followed the Communist Code of Conduct, “deny and subvert.”
With leaders like Chief Luna it’s no wonder the morale of law enforcement is at an all-time low. The police are given no discretion or allowed to do their jobs out of fear of lawsuits. The police are afraid of being recorded. Policies are shifting from to protect and serve to protect from lawsuits and prevent the next Floyd from being caught on tape.
It appears the police no longer possess the will to go on the offensive to fight crime. The war on drugs appears to be officially over in LA and the world is seeing those consequences.
It is the same everywhere in LA County. In 2022, you can shoot up a hot dose of fentanyl in front of Whole Foods off Grand Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles, in the middle of the day, and without consequence from the LAPD. This is what has infected the soul of Los Angeles, drugs and greedy corporate politicians that no longer have the spine to fight crime.
Bluff Park in Long Beach, California has turned into an open drug market. It is a beautiful stretch of coast overlooking the harbor. On the weekend, the beach parking lot is as busy as Venice Beach. This year three murders, multiple stabbings, assault on a senior citizen, and who knows what else have occurred in the once thought safe zone of Bluff Park. The murders have all occurred within a mile radius of Long Beach’s first public hazardous waste disposal bin.
At the beach public toilets, about 400 yards from a city playground is a giant red biohazard bin. The City of Long Beach installed a hazardous waste needle box for addicts to dispose of their drug needles. Too many people were complaining that the public restrooms were unusable due to drug needles. The box is red and as big as a mailbox. This needle dispenser is in the center of the iconic Long Beach bike path.
Mingled in on the bike path with daily exercisers are homeless meth addicts. They block the bike path, prowl the public restrooms, and are living on the beach sprawled in their own filth and trash.
Murdered Woman off Long Beach Bike Path
On March 13, 2022, I had a morning walk about along the bike path at Bluff Park. When I arrived at 1900 E. Ocean Blvd, Long Beach, CA 90802, where to rent a two-bedroom apartment is now $4,000.00. I noticed the police taping off a massive crime scene. Dozens of joggers and cyclists passed me by as I stood there shocked looking into the crime scene shocked.
Before my eyes was the dead body of 28-year-old Genesis Rivera. It lay just off the public stairs to the beach next to the luxury apartment building.
Genesis’ murderer has not been caught. The spot where her life was taken was known to be frequented by homeless people at night. On the night of her murder, multiple people reported hearing yelling and shouting. It was not until the morning that someone called in her dead body. Had the killer covered her body, she would have remained for days.
A local homeless advocate and senior citizen found out the hard way that new-age homeless are incapable of accepting help. Christine Barry, 70 years old, was passing out tents to the homeless. Ms. Barry was savagely beaten in Bluff Park by a young homeless man. Ms. Barry’s face was covered in bruises. Her determination to help the homeless remains undeterred if not misguided.
The addicts have fully come to the light from the shadows since Floyd. Until meth and drug supplies are shut down and the laws enforced on the streets, LA will continue with similar unprovoked attacks.
The War on Drugs in California is Officially Over
In 2022, if you are busted with a gram of cocaine, you get a pat on the back and not even a slap on the wrist. A client of mine was pulled over and coked out with a gram of Peruvian Marching Powder in his pocket in Huntington Beach. He was sweating and nervous when pulled over. The police took his coke, gave him a citation, and let him drive away with his car. I was shocked because if my client had subsequently hit and killed someone with cocaine in his system it would be a lawsuit.
Anyway, my client’s case was dismissed pre-arraignment. In exchange for the lenient agreement to complete a one-day drug program. The client said the program was just like “traffic school.” Nothing on his record for driving under the influence of cocaine or possessing a gram of cocaine.
According to social media, my client is still attending cool DJ sets and taking ecstasy at parties that would bring the Romans to their knees. Not deterred in the least bit to change his drug habits. Apply the same logic to an addict detained for trespassing, penal code section 602 violation, possession of a gram of meth, and burglary tools.
Most people in law enforcement will tell you that the streets of Los Angeles are lost. Coppers are just trying to keep their heads above water and get to a point where they can retire to Idaho or Montana. Each day that utopia is dying too.
As easy as it is to blame DA George Gascon for the increase in homeless and crime, it is a national trend and not just a Los Angeles problem. The government response to the homeless has drastically switched nationally. Similar random and grisly attacks are being reported out of New York City, the Peoples Republic of Portland, Seattle, and other major cities. The Downtown area of San Francisco is operating at only 47% of its pre-COVID levels. The reality is that no one wants to be around meth heads.
The local government's response to the homeless has been hands-off law enforcement and planning to develop future solutions. The cities of California have submitted requests for funding to house, service, and treat the homeless. Right now, Los Angeles cities are scrambling to acquire housing for the homeless. For if the cities do not do their share to shelter the homeless and those homeless spill into neighboring communities, then civil lawsuits against the municipalities will start. Those are the concerns being voiced by city attorneys and planners right now. One city planner grumbled to me, “our hands are tied because of Martin v. Boise.”
The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals in Martin v. City of Boise held that “the Eighth Amendment prohibits the imposition of criminal penalties for sitting, sleeping, or lying outside on public property for homeless individuals who cannot obtain shelter.” Martin v. City of Boise 902 F.3d 1031, 1048 (9th Cir. 2018). The case involved homeless people cited by a local ordinance of the City of Boise against anti-camping in public spaces. The case holds that the homeless no longer need to move along as other transients have done for centuries. The homeless may sleep and occupy public places.
If the cities do not have enough available shelter, then they cannot enforce the laws. The Supreme Court of the United States denied the City of Boise’s request to hear the case thereby making it law that homeless people may occupy public places until enough housing is created for them. The legal issue of whether a fine issued to a homeless person for camping on the sidewalk is cruel and unusual punishment under the 8th Amendment will not be decided anytime soon.
I am a lawyer by trade and did not do the diligence to see if any other Appeals district has any similar cases pending. That would be welcomed in the comments.
Now that the city cannot cite homeless squatters, the police have been told to back off. For the first time in American history, the state has been compelled to create shelter and homes for the homeless. This is a giant shift in the historical way that municipalities have dealt with transients. As a result, the cities are building little one-room shacks. Those stupid little one-bedroom shacks that cost around $65,000 to build apiece are the spawn of Martin v. Boise.
The Greater Los Angeles corporate political machine now has billions in funding to treat the homeless. Despite the influx of cash, you will see the number of homeless continue to exponentially grow. The meth will continue to poison the community. The billions of dollars to treat the homeless will be kicked back to preferred vendors, contractors, land acquisition, labor, and pension funding.
If Los Angeles does not have enough available shelter for the over 65,000 homeless people, they cannot enforce the anti-camping laws. What happens if, for example, the City of Huntington Beach refuses to build the shelters? The homeless from Huntington Beach then start overwhelming a neighboring city with their homeless. That will lead to lawsuits from other cities doing their corporate share to house the homeless. This insane concern is what has City Attorneys up at night.
For now, Martin v. Boise remains the law in California and out west. It explains the government’s hands-off approach to the homeless. The homeless now have an incentive to ingest meth, terrorize the neighborhood, and not get clean.
Once enough shelter exists, the idea is that the cities will be free to enforce anti-camping laws. By that time, it will be too little too late. LAs’ billions of dollars to treat the homeless will do nothing to keep society safe from random attacks by meth addicts. So long as the meth remains, everyone remains at risk from the homeless horde. The tent cities will expand out to once thought safe-havens.
Even with enough available beds, the police spirit to enforce the laws will continue to wane. Another Floyd will occur or the corporations will orchestrate more chaos when they feel their power and funding are at risk. A charlatan like Chief Luna will appear to lead us out of the crisis that his comrades created and benefited from.
Who is truly to blame for the Homeless Horde?
I really want to blame DA George Gascon. I want to blame Martin v. Boise. I want to blame meth. I want to blame how Facebook & Social Media Corporations have made Americans stupid and soft. Given people like me a platform to spew out their whimsical thoughts.
I fume about the gullible municipalities rushing about building one-room shacks and begging Washington DC for billions. I fear where the kickbacks from the homeless racket will go. Most of all, I want to feel safe again and use the public restrooms at the beach.
Recently my wife was punched in the face by a naked homeless woman on meth, had her life threatened, and was called a “beaner.” I will have much more on this later. But the sense of defeat here in LA is real. It’s only a matter of time before you are attacked.
My intellectual interest has been to document the homeless and find the cause for their exponential growth. I know that some Karen will read this and feel that I shouldn’t overgeneralize about who is homeless. To that mentality, I say “whatever forever.”
The collapse of our society is directly associated with our declining American family values and our push away from a post-Christian and post-nationalist world. A world where vices like gambling, drug use, and perversions are the new saviors of tax revenue to treat the homeless. These vices harm us and benefit billionaire CEOs and Corporate California Politicians.
Our laws reflect our society. Our society is sick and no longer a community. America is feeling the aches of the information ages. We are moving away from Main Street and into Corporate Plaza. America’s declining family values and waning sense of physical community stand in the way of true progress. We have rushed away from spirituality (the answer to the bigger questions, why am I here and what should I do?) and traded them for corporate leaders like Mark Zuckerberg. Others even rally around that bald and fat CEO of Disney, who lost a shit ton of Mickey’s money in the stock market.
All kidding aside, America better stop listening to Uncle Joe and beg Uncle Sam for forgiveness before it’s too late. Who is considered homeless and needs housing is going to rapidly change and develop in the years to come.
The government may allow the drugs to pour in. The cops may not be enforcing the laws. Corporations may control our thoughts and national spirit. However, we have allowed leaders with corporate interests to drive the bus. We have allowed our borders to remain open. We have been fooled by corporate revolutionaries. The blame and shame for the rise of the homeless lie within us.
Riding a motorcycle in LA is like dealing with a homeless person delusional and high on meth. It’s only a matter of time before you or someone you love goes down. Stay alert, create distance, and do not speak with or interact with anyone potentially on meth. It could save your life out west.
Historical Information about Hordes
Germanic barbarians fought the Romans in the 2nd to 4th centuries. From about 166-180 AD, the “all-knowing” Marcus Aurelius, the stoic philosopher, and Roman Emperor spent the end of his life at war with the different Germanic tribes along the Danube. Marcus Aurelius wrote part of his immortal work, the Mediations on the Danube in Budapest, Hungary. The Emperor’s wisdom remains relevant more now than ever: “Reject your sense of injury and the injury itself disappears.” We are so quick to take offense over things that really don’t harm us.
The movie Gladiator opens with Marcus Aurelius at war with the Germanic barbarians. The classic line: “People should know when they’re conquered.” Maximus replies: “Would you Quintis?”
Maximus first arrives at the Coliseum, mascaraing as a Spaniard. Maximus with “strength and honor” fights his way off the sands of the Coliseum in the mock battle of Carthage. Maximus and his soldiers are unleashed in the Coliseum by the smug announcer as “the Barbarian Horde!” Those words echo in cinematic history.
Horde is defined as: 1: a political subdivision of central Asian nomads. b: a people or tribe of nomadic life. 2: a large unorganized group of individuals: a teeming crowd or throng hordes of peasants
If your history is a little hazy, the barbarians lost the battle of Carthage. The battle of Carthage took place in the Second Punic War. In the First Punic War, Carthage, a maritime superpower in North Africa, lost its control of the Mediterranean Sea, to the rising superpower, Rome. In the Second Punic War, Hannibal set off to avenge his father, and country, and crush Roman expansion. It was the end of one empire and the beginning of another.
Hannibal crossed the Alps with elephants and an intact fighting force. He pulled off the ultimate surprise. He caught the Romans by surprise and ravaged them never losing a battle. Hannibal through his leadership was able to keep a cohesive fighting unit on the field. Victory after victory he defeated the Romans. Though Hannibal never sacked Rome, he and his barbarians remained at the gates. Hannibal destroyed commerce and bottlenecked Rome much like the French did to English ports in the Napoleonic Wars.
The military accomplishment of the barbarians is one of the greatest in military history. Hannibal “for 16 years, had held together an undefeated army, in the midst of hostile land.” He turned Roman battle tactics on their head much like Napoleon did to everyone that stood in his way. Until one Roman drew him out like poison.
As announced in the movie Gladiator, it was “Scipio Africanus” that drew Hannibal out of Italy. Around 205 BC, in Scipio’s address to a divided Senate, he stated:
“He who brings danger upon another has more spirit than he who repels it. Add to this the terror excited by the unexpected is increased thereby….Provided no impediment is caused here, you will hear at once that I have landed, and that Africa is blazing with war; that Hannibal is preparing to depart from this country…Many things which are not now apparent will develop; and it is the part of a general not to be wanting when opportunity arises, and bend its events to his designs. I shall, Quintus Fabius, have the opponent you assign me, Hannibal, but I shall rather draw him after me than be kept here by him.”
Scipio attacked New Carthage in Spain and lured Hannibal out of Italy. Hannibal was eventually tracked many years later by Scipio and knowingly chose poison for his death. Marcus Aurelius’ victories over the barbarians were short-lived. Over time Rome could not fend off the barbarians and the overextended empire crumbled. Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations have provided a guide to self-mastery and spirituality for almost two thousand years. Hannibal is known as one of the greatest commanders of all time and his barbarians are an immortal fighting force.
What if Marcus Aurelius could take over for Joseph R. Biden? What would the Roman Emperor tell the American people to do about the drugs and homeless? How would the Emperor incorporate his immortal work, the Meditations into race and gender studies for elementary students? Or would the corporate teacher’s union stand in the way of wisdom once again?
In 2022, the barbarian horde is once again at the gates. The homeless horde and their corporate overlords have flung danger upon us. We the inhabitants of LA are the ones left to repel the danger. Our spirit is waning. Unless a Scipio appears soon and draws the homeless and corporate politicians out, it might be too late to save LA.
