I’m going to tell you why I’m disgusted with Reno, NV and the US at large.  The government has become such a useless system of arrogant elites – people who after failing to accomplish anything or be made aristocrats by chance – have sought solace in the public sector while they use hubris to act authoritarian utterly crushing anyone who dares act like they ought to pick up the phone.

I’m unsure if their uselessness is due to a general lack of ability, drug or alcohol abuse, whether they are bought out – racketeering with corrupt private sector interests, nursing hatred over their private sector failure, or just inept, but it’s high time I find a place where people act respectful and like they have a brain.  I’m refusing to allow Reno, Washoe County, and Nevada bureaucracy to get away with it.  And I was treated this way in Napa, CA too, so CA isn’t exempt.  Government is basically useless, and is hiding it.  Although most of you I speak to agrees with me here, so hiding in plain sight I suppose is more like it, it’s a racket that they take our money and do nothing successfully, so is insurance, we all get this.

What I’m generally seeing is corruption.  The US federal government certainly has its share, but the scores of policies and research which are handed down and shared by international agencies as guidelines, these entities fail to respond and implement.  The laws are there, but government acts like they are self sowing plants, which are automatically watered.  There is a general lack of willingness to protect people.  I can’t accept it.  Whether you call the system a constitutional republic, a democracy, modified socialism with a dash of free market enterprise, or a lamentable and even perhaps joyous unalterable journey towards communism, people can’t have a successful society which has a chance of survival, if corruption is the aristocracy.  

My assertions of corruption are a compliment in a sense.  I’m saying that people like Mayor Hillary Schieve actually have a brain, they are just hacks.  This is in contrast to being an utter idiot, who lies and takes bribes, which is what I was told was going on by the client who poisoned me at 50 S. Virginia Street, Bernard & Tim Carter.  When you can pay about $100K to government to allow you to disobey federal law (when it’s in direct contradiction to what the head Plans Examiner in the Building Department instructed), well that’s sayin you paid someone higher up to let you racketeer and hurt people.

This corruption is easy to get away with in small town America within the building sector.  People in these American rural communities haven’t generally seen the world class design and building acumen shown in large cities, where the best buildings happen.  It’s easy to fool the public and run a racket, which pumps out poisonous and substandard work.  I cannot have the ethical practice I desire in a place like Reno, NV, because the corruption is so bad, and the people are so uneducated.  I’m done trying to cram crap into my portfolio.  I will say that Phil Satre’s custom house was the notable exception. Thanks Phil and Jennifer, you guys were very professional.

To the rest of Reno, I’ll say this.  You can have your 7” incandescent cans (which you can buy 10 for a $100), to which you stuff an LED retrofit for $3.

So I’ve been poisoned by people breaking the law. I mean why is it so difficult to grasp? Its because its politically motivated from back room deals. Today we’re going to talk about the state of American politics as a backdrop to common sense and protecting our way of life.

I see it put two ways. Poison is something done through the environment, environmental contamination – so a lot of good ol boy conservative politics seems to think that pro environmentalism party opposition gives them carte blanche to reap whatever havoc they feel they have the right to do in order to accomplish their financial goals. They bolster political support at rallies with families, giving to children’s hospitals, when its their reckless law breaking that put the sick families in the ward. They profess to have Christian values, while they poison God’s creation, and commit patricide, genocide and every other cide out there. The cide has got you on your side. What are you running from? That mirror you’re holding in front of your face? Somehow, these people, some Christians, have become murderers too illogical to possess a comprehension of even basic biology. Step 1: Poisoned organisms can’t live. Biology 101, here we come!!

I wish there were more people like the State Governor of Nevada, Brian Sandoval. He’s got some common sense. He is a Republican, he’s a moral man. He actually has supported the end to the murder of our families by the corrupt with no respect for the laws of the nation. He believes in upholding the law. He’s stood for justice with me. Be thankful Nevada, at least your governor is smart enough to understand that if everything dies from poison, nobody wins. Hey, I’d even take the bet that he’s got the IQ to get that if everything is dead, then there wont’ be any fighting going on about this any longer either. And there is fighting – people die everyday from those who use this as a weapon. They even kill themselves – when they incapacitate themselves, it drags our economy down because we have to pay for them. Yep, lead has a half life of 3-400 years – its around for a LONG time. Most people can’t even remember what they ate last week or where their keys are, much less where they put that lead they were too in denial to see.

But what can we say about some of the others? Let’s take lead – its been a known deadly toxic poison since…ohhh…the time of the Assyrians in the Bronze Age and even before. Its been outlawed in this country since 1979, and yet I know some conservatives who are so irrational and greedy, that they’ll argue that a property owner has the right to poison you for their own material wealth.  Some like to disobey EPA federal laws because they’re secretly bigots and are so pissed that Obama’s in the White House that they’ve decided to poison themselves and others as a means of protest – simply because they view the federal laws made by the EPA as another Democratic liberal annoyance, which is the same mechanism that put a black guy in the White House.  They cut back room deals in order to outlet their hate on everybody. Yep, they think that’s rational – never mind that Obama’s been in the White House less than 10 years, and lead based paint has been banned since 1979, plus you’re an idiot if you poison yourself. Oh, and the entire human race hails from Africa, its been genetically proven, so bigotry is insane.

Wasn’t it John Wayne that said, “You can’t fix stupid.”

But I would be soooo remiss if I didn’t spend some time picking on the liberal Democrats too. Its their massive unaccountable government, with its cumbersome policies that made way for the insane on the Right to feel as though their position is justified. The Left lost its mind when it decided that government was perfect for this job.  We the People must be accountable for our actions, nobody can do it for us. Would you poison your dog to death with rotten food? Yet some think its alright to do to small business owners and those who step foot into these buildings simply because the law won’t take the time or has the resources to check every single space on our behalf every single moment of the day and night. Corruption in government is just as bad as corruption in big business, or the same rather.

Or we can couch it that poison abatement laws make it too expensive to clean up…that the laws are ridiculous when it comes to abatement. Take lead for example: you’ve got to erect an airtight safe barrier, with a plastic drop cloth ($4-25) which you can buy at any local hardware store, and you’ve got to pay for testing (expensive at $400, but then there’s the millions you’re making off your building), and you’ve got to put the debris in plastic bags (another huge investment at $10 for 30), plus there will be masks (They start at $30 and $450 is the nicest one I’ve seen, but there’s a central unit you can run lots of guys off of for $1,000), and then you’ve got to buy some filtration equipment (which can be rented), and last but not least, some booty socks, which sell for about $15 per 500. No, the only problem with lead abatement law is – lead was used ubiquitously in buildings prior to 1979, and most people are too lazy to scrub a toilet effectively, and so something as careful as lead abatement is something they prefer to ignore. Snore.

Greed is the simple answer, and lack of enforcement. They prefer to wave their magical wand of denial, and say the lead isn’t there. I call it, The “If I can’t see it, then it doesn’t exist Disease.” Toxic Craxy for short. Its ridiculous when our lives are on the line, and we’re too busy arguing over the political furniture.

I’ll give it to you plain. You are an illogical business person if you think your business can’t survive unless you murder. You are morally depraved and fundamentally lacking in understanding of the principles which gave our country respect, and those which generate true wealth.  I see you green washing.  You are the anti-Christ to American virtue and morality. Considering you’ve made this a fight to the death, you might want to consider the opposition which is likely to be headed your way. I said this will be the cause of future wars, Civil and foreign. Poison hurts, nobody will put up with it for long.

So go ahead, tell everybody that America’s the Greatest Country on Earth. I’ll believe it when I see more of you acting like you’re smart and thorough enough to scrub a toilet clean.
