Racism in Akron Schools

I LOVE thinking about the hardest problems in society. I believe the race war between Blacks and Whites is a foundational struggle that is so embedded in American society that it is almost our one great sacred struggle between good and evil. I am nearly obsessed with the Black/White American problem. If we can overcome […]

January 6, 2023 - the 4th anniversary of the forced closure of Akron's tent city.

Today, January 6, commemorates the forced closing of Akron's tent city on my private property on January 6, 2019. I have ALWAYS said, if you don't like my ideas then come up with your own ideas. Our homeless-run tent village ran for almost exactly 2 years. The MetroParks closed a very established homeless camp on […]

The Results of my Christmas Eve Sleep Out

I like trying to think of activist direct action ideas that both raise awareness of the humanitarian crimes we impose on our OWN CITIZENS by stealing their tents and belongings and leaving them stranded on freezing streets in the richest, most “Christian” country in the world AND trying to help these people at the same […]

Last night city council ignored the people and voted to force a half-baked, high-priced rental complex down the throats of citizens who have fought so systematically and respectfully to at least slow down the process. I've been there. We had hundreds of people come in support of the tent village we were running on my […]

What I've Learned About Democrats

In my campaign to try to be the next Ward 8 Council leader I have been to over 1000 Democratic voters so far. (Some I've gotten to speak to and some I've just dropped off literature.) It has been such a wonderful opportunity to get to talk to all these people. I've learned some things […]

I don't typically write these kinds of posts simply because throwing myself a pity party is not really my style. "Suck it up, buttercup" is how I live my life. But I guess there might be some worth in recording that I feel this way from time to time. There was a city-wide camp sweep […]

Homeless People Are Hated Like Jews Are Hated.

I have debated if the work I'm doing is similar to the Underground Railroad in Slave America or Jewish rescuers in Nazi Germany. The biggest disconnect between slaves and homeless people is that slaves were not being eradicated. They were property that slave holders wanted returned. Nazi extermination only wanted one thing: to wipe Jews […]

"PLEASE SAGE! MAKE FUN OF COPS AGAIN." A Communist friend of mine recently asked me to get back to the energy where I viscously, brutally and vulgarly verbally attacked racist and murdering cops. So, instead, I thought it would be more fun to attack his sacred cow: COMMUNISM. (Everyone loves when I attack their enemies. […]

Thank You For Passing Issue 10, Akron Ohio

Episode 100 Based on these 4 items I believe we have enough information to determine that Chief Mylett is not the right person for the job of Akron Police Chief and should resign: Ethan Liming - downplaying the gun he used to attack those young Black men and demonizing the Black men.

September 29 is the day some people in the West celebrate Michaelmas. Basically, because it is near the autumnal equinox, the celebration is about being brave as darkness begins to envelope us. In Waldorf schools they often celebrate this with a story of villagers channeling the bravery of Michaelmas to fight the dragon. At the […]

Where Does He Get His Money?

Apparently the Akron Police Department has been asking my homeless friends where I get my money. My friends thought it was a strange question to ask and so they let me know the police were asking. It's strange because it sounds a little like an investigation. I mean, who in the government asks that question […]
