Cañada del Oro Wildflowers, Geocache Quached

Finally got up to Cañada del Oro, my favorite favorite place to bum around, last Saturday, to see the wildflowers. Though this is the most reliable place I know of in the San Ho area to see an astounding variety of wildflowers, I was somewhat nervous to see Indian Paintbrushes before the heat gets them. Saw this cool turkey on the way in, but I had to shoot the photo into the sun…

Shitty digital Canon Elph lens was NOT cooperating to catch these blue dicks! You can eat them… IMG_2435

Shooting stars in the daytime!

Finally the Indian Paintbrush showed up. I’m pretty sure the one below with the serrated leaves is also a kind of paintbrush, but someone can comment and fill me in.

Día sin Mexicanos in Willow Street

Here are some photos of signs from stores closed today for día sin Mexicanos. The event intended to show lazy Americans how much they rely on “immigrants” to provide for their basic needs, even though everyone on this continent EXCEPT latinos is an immigrant, and an illegal one at that according to 370 broken treaties with native peoples.

Willow St was dead as a graveyard. I’m still looking for real stories and evidence of how other communities fared; it’s hard to think on the effectiveness of Calle Willow’s solidarity gesture when one considers that the clientele is largely latino there. If the business owners couldn’t convince the people who are the problem –the white people on the other Willow St beyond highway 87 –at least they had a day to come together and plot out what it all means in a system that relies on racism to keep the working classes down and thereby also the prices of unnecessary consumer goods.

Apparently “dozens” of restaurants closed in the North American heartland. Tatiana Sanchez of the hopelessly incompetent Mercury News tried to do the story justice in today’s paper. No word yet on if Driscolls or Giant or Well-Pict or Dole suffered, who are massively to blame for any inducement people may have to come to California illegally, and also as guilty of starting the current heroin epidemic in the strawberry fields. Hope someone got the point!

Fake Apologies Stand at Standing Rock

So we don’t mind treating veterans like shit but we fall for every little gesture they make on behalf of empire, grasping up their sentiments for our own like good little consumers.
A handful of white men who happen to be veterans bow down and “beg forgiveness” according to the article for 500 years of war crimes against native Americans and we’re all supposed to be touched?

This is nigh empirical proof that white men don’t have the strength of character not to be liked by someone. This is a “check your privilege” situation par excellence. Maybe we shouldn’t raise them anymore to please the power structure through work, rape and killing. Leonard Crow Dog, this is coercion! Don’t be fooled, stand your ground!

Where is the fucking thing. Here it is. Let’s do a little “middle class fake white guilt and people of color who went to college empathy” experiment shall we? Let’s see how yall comment on this.

Possible quote: Hey I’m Wes “Columbus” Clark, I’m looking for a reality TV show or something, and I came out here to get some attention! Maybe the Pentagon will even get some sympathy from the people after waging war for 100 years for oil and Lebensraum, that could raise my pension or something!

Or maybe Salon is trying to make its own reality since President Trump has sanctioned that for them. Anyhow, now is not the time to forgive and forget, people. White people, North Americans, the three Abrahamic poison religions, have never been held responsible for what they’ve done to the world. We need to consciously inescapably KNOW that the world hates us for a good solid 200 years, then when the ego and the power are long gone, we can start talking about reconciliation. If the suffering does not come back around, the apology then remains part of the violence. First of all, you apologize and your NEVER ask for forgiveness! That’s not your role in an apology!

I charge Wes Clark with capital phoniness, the press with yellow wishful thinking, and all yall motherfuckers with stupidity for lending your (doubtless mostly empty) good feelings to news of this trumped-up event.
