DEFENDING AMERIKKKAN DREAM ILLUSIONS AND THE POOR? DO DI-FI, KAMALA HARRIS AND THE CALIFORNIA DEMOWHATZITZ PARTY GET IT?

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), aka "DiFi", wants California Demowhatzitz to do battle with Republicans and Tea Baggers to "defend the American Dream", the poor, et al. California Attorney General Kamala Harris jumped up and down at the same state party event where DiFi spoke, all happy that Demowhatzitz dominate California's important state offices. She really likes Governor Jerry Brown.

My article about San Francisco and Vallejo ("Government Indifference") left out a recent report in the local news media that the Black and White populations of Oakland are roughly equal after a decade of Black citizenry shrinkage. Why the shrinkage? Government is not a Black person's best friend!

Incompetence, indifference, both, whatever you want to call it, nobody in Oakland did anything substantial to make people feel welcome. Add to that Oscar Grant, other high profile Po'Lice murders, the Po'Lice themselves acting as fear mongers--worried that there aren't enough of them to "protect and serve", when the only people they are meant to protect live in the Oakland Hills.

Who could blame any non-White person for non-enthusiasm for Oakland?

Jerry Brown, the new Governor, earned my nickname "Jerry the Gentrifier of Oakland". Government incompetence, indifference, or unknown status of mentality--I mean, is he Moonbeam or is he a hole in the ozone layer puttin' a smackdown on poor people?

Don't get me wrong, I hope the Demowhatzitz DO SOMETHING, but I have news for DiFi: the so-called American Dream has been under attack at least since Ronnie Raygun Went To Washington. Reagan's War On Poverty had a different flavor altogether than the one L.B.J. dealt with in the 1960's. After Contracts With America, the Bill Clinton Welfare Whammy, and everything that has happened since, one wonders where DiFi has been?

What special rock has she been living under all these years?
