Any and all things criminal Pitten's - I intend to give him a just due fitten's

Please keep the information coming?


freshwest - I actually appreciate your candor and applaud your research/insights

This case is not about victim Laser Haas versus Mitt Romney;
it is germane to the issues of WSJ slaughtering U.S. citizenry without remorse or relent.

We are in a Civil War;
but no one really cares about dollar bullets.

Until one's life savings are ALL GONE!


Romney IS the boss in this case and has benefited (indirectly and Directly) from the organized crimes.

As far as 'get'ting him -

We've already done that - because Pitten's - Didn't Make It!

Romney the Racketeer Lawsuit - Update Day 75 - Press starting to pay attention

- - You may be aware already that yours truly has sued Romney & Gang for Racketeering in the Federal District Court of Los Angeles. Many a stalwart for Romney barked and trolled that the case would never see light of day. First they said the Clerk would refuse the case. Then they said the Court would immediately toss it out.

Well, here we are, in the 75th day and I'm mailing the 2nd Amended Complaint to the Defendants.

They must answer - OR - lose by default!

Meanwhile, others are picking up on the case and word is getting around out there. Currently, with Hollywood posers coming a calling; I'm compelled to engage an entertainment attorney and will make a choice on that real soon. You can see one of the stories written that has gained more than 25,000 Facebook likes/shares that is being linked to by another DU party named "Ellipsis" and his GD thread with a oddly titled "Mitt Romney is Being Sued in Fed Court for Criminal Racketeering".

The fact of the matter is, I'm suing Romney for Racketeering under "Civil" Code 1964(c).

photo be Ann Werner

Fellow DU'r "Ellipsis" links to an "AATTP" (Americans Against The Tea Party) website that is re-telling the tale as told by Ann Werner from "Liberals Unite" 24 hour News/Website of a guy name Samuel-Warde.com (all of whom yours truly has never heard of heretofore). Ann's article is aptly titled "Mitt Romney Being Sued For Racketeering in Federal Court". The AATTP website apparently fails to give proper credit to the source story; and that's a big no no.

Ann Werner points out that the story has been overlooked by main stream.

This, sad to say, has been the way it is; because Romney owns a big piece of main stream via his Bain Capital ownership of Clear Channel Communications (which was acquired by Racketeering profits). Also, Bain Capital is partners with NBC in The Weather Channel; and Bain owns Toys R Us, Burlington Coat Factory, Sports Authority, Celtics, Dunkin Donuts, Kay Bee, HCA, Guitar Centers, Stage Stores and eToys. Thus there's a billion dollars in advertising revenue generated by Bain Capital each year; and no Editor is going to risk losing those dollars by pointing out the story 1st.

Even when parties do (like American Bridge) - Bain buys them OFF!

As I stated before, we are mailing Romney & Gang the 2nd Amended Complaint (the first one's were rants) - that tells the story and address key Racketeering issues (such as "association in fact" / "Bankruptcy Rings". If Romney & Gang accept my mailing and sign the release form - they get 60 days to answer - instead of 21. Either way, within 75 days, this case is going to clearly go where the issues have not gone heretofore.

A legitimate process


- - ARTICLE by Addicting Info Website

Ann Werner and I are in discussions about her next story (she will possibly do a series on the entire case). In the meantime, Nathaniel Downes has written a well researched article digging into subtle issues of our cases. His story is upon the AddictingINFO.org website and is titled "Mitt Romney Slapped With Racketeering Lawsuit". I'm impressed that Mr. Downes has taken the time to look at the factual details of the case. As a result he has received 36,000 Facebook "likes" and 37,000 Facebook "shares".

Nathan denotes the following items inside his article;

eToys Liquidation Or Con Game? One Man’s Fight To Make Sure Mitt Romney Pays For His Crime.

Stephen “Laser” Haas operates Collateral Logistics Inc. (CLI) a company which was appointed to oversee the liquidation of assets in the bankruptcy of eToys in 2001. He has now filed suit against Mitt Romney along with his company Bain Capital, Goldman Sachs, and several other firms, over actions taken in the eToys bankruptcy which manipulated the sale price, costing the companies shareholders millions. A US Judge confirmed the details of the case back in 2005, but under the Bush administration enforcement of these laws was lackluster at best. Bain Capital has already found itself in hot water over similar price-fixing scandals, but this case comes with paperwork implicating the one time GOP presidential nominee of price manipulation.


I suggest reading both Ann Werner's article and Nathaniel's;
because they are different viewpoints about the same issue

Romney IS a Racketeer!


What I'm curious to know is - do you think Romney will get away totally 'Scot Free'?

NO there's NO Statute of Limitations for Civil RICO - though some Circuits implied 4 years


The statute itself allows 10 year windows. The US Supreme Court has stipulated in the case of In re Hazel Atlas Glass that SOL doesn't apply to fraud on the court BY Officers of the Court.

Finally, Romney is "retroactively" resigned as of August 2001; back to Feb 1999. His law firm MNAT had a partner who just so happens to be a partner from 1999 to August 2001. Then, on August 2, 2001, Colm Connolly was promoted to US Attorney in Delaware; where he refused to investigate and/or prosecute his former partner/clients for 7 years.

Can Capone arrange for Nitti to be the federal prosecutor over his case;
and then claim statute of limitations when Nitti failed to prosecute?

Liberals United Front Paged - "Mitt Romney Being Sued for Racketeering in Federal Court"

Apparently, yours truly made a faux pas of sorts in making the title of the case "Romney Sued for RICO in Fed Court". In the effort of brevity (utilizing "RICO" instead of "Racketeering", the story gets mixed up with all the banter on how Romney purportedly dominated Puerto Rico.

To the rescue of that issue comes a veteran journalist Ann Werner from the 24-Hour Online New Magazine LIBERALS UNITE (and - in some manner - linked to Samuel-Warde.com). Instead of utilizing the word RICO, reporter Ann Werner titled her piece "Mitt Romney Being Sued for Racketeering in Federal Court".

Reporter Ann Werner is planning on thoroughly investigating my allegations; and reached out to me via social media. She has now registered on PACER (Public Access Court Electronic Records) and plans to get expert opinions on the matter.


Romney needs the darkness, corruption and his power, money, might makes right to assure he defeats the message. All I need is just one person of worth, to say this case has a chance. Then the dominos shall fall.

Meanwhile, I really like Ann Werner's photoshop pic.


By the way - Press Release due out today - on my rebuttal points to the Dept. of Justice's US Trustee letter.

Please stay tuned!

Update - News Break - Judge issues Order in "Haas v Romney" that's telltale!

He who has eyes to see and cares how integrity be;
look and consider - why I'm a happy me!


Proceedings: IN CHAMBERS ORDER Denying Plaintiff’s Request for Service by United States Marshal

Plaintiff asks the Court to order the United States Marshal to effect service on the ten defendants named in his First Amended Complaint. [Dkt 7.] Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 4(c)(3) provides: “At the plaintiff’s request, the court may order that service be made by a United States marshal or deputy marshal or by a person specially appointed by the court. The court must so order if the plaintiff is authorized to proceed in forma pauperis under 28 U.S.C. § 1915 or as a seaman under 28 U.S.C. § 1916.” (emphasis added). Plaintiff is neither a seaman nor a pauper. Having read the First Amended Complaint, plaintiff’s additional pleading entitled “Racketeering Civil Preliminary Rico Case Statement 1st Edition Part A,” and plaintiff’s Request for Service [Dkts 6, 7, 8], the Court finds no reason to depart from the general rule that “[t]he plaintiff is responsible for having the summons and complaint served within the time allowed by Rule 4(m) and must furnish the necessary copies to the person who makes service.” Fed. R. Civ. P. 4(c)(1). See generally 4A Charles Alan Wright & Arthur R. Miller, Federal Practice and Procedure § 1090 (3d ed. 2002)

emphasis added



Mitt Romney was CEO of Bain Capital in 2001; when eToys public company and federal bankruptcy estate was robbed (fraudulently) by Bain. This is one of the main reasons why he claims to be "retroactively" retired from August 2001 (after they offered me a bribe to become his partner and I reported the crime).

It has taken a dozen years to get here;
but they are now in serious harm's way!

Here's the "Preliminary RICO Case Statement" that the judge "acknowledge's" reading.

- The criminal issues at hand!

Someone is going to jail!

Toys R Us (owned by Bain) is in possession of the stolen property of eToys
In a CIVIL Racketeering case, one need only provide proof by "preponderance of the level" (the 3 standards in order of strength of facts, evidence, proof required are - beyond all reasonable doubt, clear and convincing and preponderance of" -

Additionally, I only need to provide proof that Romney "indirectly" benefited (though he DID directly benefit);
and that's REAL easy to do - because the jerk bragged he gets millions each year from Bain.

Clawbacks are Hell - and Pitten's WILL get clawed!


This whistleblower turned down a bribe from Mitt Romney's gang and reported them to the Department of Justice in 2001 (during the eToys bankruptcy case). Instead of arresting the fraudsters - the Dept. of [IN]Justice rallied its support of Organized Crime (probably in the hopes of doing a POTUS wannabe a favor and get rewarded when Romney handpicked that "friendly" U.S. Attorney General that Sheldon Adelson was putting up $100 million to buy).
Because Laser Haas failed English and didn't (technically) graduate from High School;
the Organized Crooks (Racketeers) - want you to let them OFF totally 'Scott Free'!

And that Ain't Right!


- - - Yours truly is a victim of organized crime. And, mind you, not just any ordinary efforts in syndicated felony law breaking; but that of/by non other than Willard Mitt Romney ("Romney" and his Racketeering GANG. Most have forgotten the fact that Mitt is an attorney at law from Harvard.

Whereas, yours we (eToys shareholders & I) alleged -Romney has a Gang (see list of co-conspirators below) -

Romney became powerful and rich as a corporate raider;
- - - - - - - - - - and did so Illegally!

Because there's much money to be made defending the likes of Mitt; there are many an attorney, troll, stalwart, brown-nosier and other types of detractors/naysayers - who are all too willing to come out and say

"Hey - Pitten's is just a corporate raider who is ruthless and rich.
- - - - - There's nothing against the law of being a corporate raider ruthless

Bull {c}hit is still manure - no matter how you spell and/or slice the cow pie!

Everyone is already aware that Romney lied about his tenure as Chief Executive Officer ("CEO" of Bain Capital. What most are not aware of - are the real reasons WHY the POTUS wannabe claims to be "retroactively" retired from Bain Capital in August 2001; back to February 11, 1999.

What is it that Romney is so scared of; that he LIED {committed PERJURY}
- - - -to the ENTIRE Country about when he was CEO of Bain Capital

- - - - - upon his federal election campaign finance form (Office of Government Ethics {"OGE"} 278 Form)?


Racketeering Co-Conspirators of Romney's

Yours Truly has the answers to why Mitt lied upon his OGE Campaign Finance 278 Form.

The (REAL) reasons are are;

  1. Paul Traub
  2. Traub's "TBF" law firm
  3. Barry Gold (Traub's partner)
  4. Michael Glazer (whom Gold & Traub worked with)
  5. Greg Werkheiser (a partner of MNAT)
  6. Colm Connolly (MNAT partner who became U.S. Attorney)
  7. Goldman Sachs (a client of MNAT)
  8. Morris Nichols ("MNAT"
  9. Bain Capital (also a Client of MNAT)
  10. The Learning Company (Merged by MNAT with Mattel)
  11. Stage Stores (owned by Romney, who hired Michael Glazer, whom Barry Gold worked for with Traub)
  12. Kay Bee (CEO was Michael Glazer)
  13. eToys (MNAT as eToys counsel, Traub's TBF eToys creditors counsel,)
  14. Barry Gold (Traub's confessed partner) became illegal CEO of eToys
  15. MNAT, Traub and Barry Gold all lied about their links to Romney/Glazer/Bain/Kay bee
  16. Glazer/Kay Bee - bought eToys (for Romney when he was CEO of Bain)
  17. Barry Gold, MNAT and Traub did - ILLEGALLY - reduce the prices to Romney/Bain/Glazer/Kay Bee

It is a FACT that all of those parties are connected to each other; as per Court Docket Record Affidavits and Confessions. It is NOT in dispute that Barry Gold and Paul Traub are partners in Asset Disposition Advisors ("ADA". It is CONFESSED (see U.S. Trustee Disgorge Motion of Traub's TBF for $1.6 million dollars {here} AND - Wall Street Journal July 25, 2005 article "eToys investors claims conflicts at law firm".

In parts 19 & 35 of the Disgorge Motion - Federal Police (U.S. Trustee) - notes parties were "forewarned".

Then, the Disgorge Motion concludes that "Fraud on the Court" occurred!

The United States Supreme Court did RE-open a previously closed case for YEARS - of In re Hazel Atlas Glass v Hartford Empire and concluded that there are NO Statute of Limitations for Fraud on the Court by Officers of the Court.

Hartford was (eventually) punished for the fraud it did nine (9) years earlier; and the U.S. Supreme set the standard in Hazel Atlas that the Disgorge Motion reiterates appropriately the fact (in part 29) - correctly that -

{T}ampering with the administration of justice in the manner indisputably shown here involves far more than an injury to a single litigant. It is a wrong against the institutions set up to protect and safeguard the public, institutions in which fraud cannot complacently be tolerated consistently with the good order of society. Surely it cannot be that preservation of the integrity of the judicial process must always wait upon the diligence of litigants. The public welfare demands that the agencies of public justice be not so impotent that they must always be mute and helpless victims of deception and fraud.


FELONY Crimes by Romney & his RICO Gang

Rico Case Law:

The defendants constitute an illegal enterprise in acts or threat of acts in violation of the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations ("RICO" Act of 1970. The LAW is United States Code Title 18 with Sections, 1961-1968.

One only needs two (2) separate (specific 18 U.S.C. 1961 "predicate acts" crimes during a long period of time; in order to successfully prosecute a Civil RICO case under Section 1961(c).

The following are particular violations; of an RICO Section 1961 "predicate acts";
which - by the way - also includes Bankruptcy Frauds!

18 USC 241: Conspiracy against Rights of Citizens:

18 USC 3: Accessory after the fact, knowing that an offense has been
committed against the United States, relieves, receives, comforts or assists
the offender in order to hinder or prevent his apprehension, trial or punishment.

18 USC 242: Deprivation of Rights color of law of rights protected under the
Constitution of the U.S.

18 USC 512: Tampering with a witness

18 USC 1341: Mail fraud

18 USC 1343: Wire fraud

18 USC 1503: Obstruction of justice

18 USC 1510: Obstructing of criminal investigation

18 USC 1513: Retaliating against a witness, victim or informant

18 USC 1951: Interference with interstate commerce

18 USC 1621: Perjury

18 USC 1001: Fraud

Federal (Civil) RICO cases are also permitted to review issues of individual "STATE" Felony violations;
as long as they carry more than one (1) year in prison - upon conviction.


Mitt Romney and his RICO Gang already - ARE - guilty;
because they've confessed to 35 crimes in the eToys federal case.


they were not held accountable for their culpability;
because of the federal corruption of Colm F Connolly!

This plaintiff's case against Romney, is still going forward (thus far);
and - over the next few weeks - I've got a plan to shove the facts up any stalwarts butt.

They are counting on the fact that you'll fall asleep when I quote the Law. It is rather easy for them to point out the fact that "hey, the guy didn't even graduate high school - he simply does NOT understand the Law".

Bull {c}hit is still manure;
no matter who says otherwise.

Could AL Capone "retroactively" escape his acts of organized crimes?

- - - - - - - Of course NOT!

Neither should Mitt - the PITTs - Romney.

Over the next several weeks, I'm going to file - in federal court - the proofs of Romney's RICO/Gang issues of Organized Crimes. By only posting one item at a time. Then the trolls, attorneys at law, stalwarts, naysayers and all who believe it is okay to betray a client - - will only have one thing to attack.

- - - - - - - - -As it now appears tha- the Truth will stop Romney's Gang from being "Scot Free"!


What the wonderful Mr. Reich has not detailed; because he and I have not spoken about it - is the criminal elements of Mitt Romney's gain of super quick wealth. It is there, black and white, for everyone to see (and news stories are about to come out about it in January).

The 3rd Circuit Court (which is over eToys by the way) and Congress - have affirmed a certain bad faith element can rear its ugly head; and that is an "association in fact" also/known/as a "Bankruptcy Ring".

Obviously, Congress was well aware that rigging of the U.S. Bankruptcy system is problematic. The Law making arm of our nation’s government built-in the Bankruptcy Fraud statutes §§ 152 thru 156 (“predicate acts”) as part of the Racketeering Felonies of 18 USC § 1961.

In its decision of In re Arkansas 798 F.2d 645; the 3rd Circuit detailed Congressional reflections that “--legislative history makes clear the 1978 [Bankruptcy] Code was designed to eliminate the abuses and detrimental practices that had been found to prevail. Among such practices was the cronyism of the "bankruptcy ring" and attorney control of bankruptcy cases. In fact, the House Report noted that ‘n practice ... the bankruptcy system operates more for the benefit of attorneys than for the benefit of creditors.’ H.R. No. 595, 95th Cong., 2d Sess. 92, reprinted in 1978 U.S. Code Cong. & Ad. News 5787, 5963, 6053”.

Due, in part, to the hubris of Romney and his Bankruptcy Ring believing his POTUS quest would succeed; there’s a vast evidence trail full of rock-solid date/ time stamped Bankruptcy Fraud violations. Compliance of the specificity/particularity requisites of Fed.R.Civ.P 9(b) are therefore freely achieved.

DOJ Denies Duplicity in Bain CoverUp

Yours truly has been battling Romney & his RICO gang about eToys.com - for 12 years now (see PoliticusUSA Rmuse story - here). In so doing, much information and many Smoking Gun evidences have been discovered.

As iterated by Rmuse of PolitcusUSA.com; Romney was sued for RICO in Fed Court (October 18, 2013); because Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital, vis-a-vis their attorneys, perpetrated massive frauds in many courts and case as partners. But the DOJ says there's no merits to this claim; and there's no cover up (see Letter - here).

The problem with the remarks of the Department of Justice = is the fact that they can NOT back up their claims; because of that little thing called evidence. Whereas, we can prove (and will at trial) that Romney is a Racketeer and the DOJ, with its US Trustee office - are duplicitous by CoverUp. Romney claimed to be "retroactively" retired; because the organized crime spree began in 1999 and went super criminal masterminds in eToys in 2001.


Main Stream Media Stories on the case

What is funny about it all, is that the Department of Justice United States Trustee's office states in their letter (here) that my claims have no merit; but they fail to address the issue that the US Trustee's office already helped me get CONFESSIONS.

  1. US Trustee Motion for $1.6 million fine - in Parts 19 & 35 - document Fraud on the Court

  2. Wall Street Journal documents confessions "eToys investors claim conflict"

  3. Rigging IPO Game story by NYT - documents Goldman Sachs fraud of eToys

  4. I'm one source of Rolling Stone Cover by Taibbi "Greed and Debt" a True Story About Romney and Bain.

  5. Goldman Sachs and Bain Capital utilize same firm in DE (MNAT)

  6. As "Greed and Debt" story points out Bain got paid $83 million and MNAT represents Bain

  7. Your truly pointed that crime out to the court (here).

  8. US Trustee has NO authority over crimes; but gives Traub immunity (here)

  9. Then US Trustee rescues the crooks with Motion to expunge my evidence (here).

  10. Able to get away with all of this because MNAT partner became U.S. Attorney (see Resume - here).


You can't have Al Capone (Romney) arrange for one of his Frank Nitti's (Colm Connolly) to become the chief federal prosecutor; and then claim there's NO merit to allegations of fraud and corruption.

When that crooked federal prosecutor refused to investigate his former partner (MNAT) and clients (Sachs & Bain).

One day soon, a news story will bring -

------ then the UNtenable house of cards

-------------------------will come crashing down upon them!

Toys R Us is in possession of the stolen property of eToys;
and yours truly intends to stop the toying around - and get back what was stolen!

What you see above is less than 10% of my evidence.

Riddle me this!

Martha Stewart went to jail for one small lie (about selling her stock). In these case we have attorneys at law admitting they lied under oath 34 times to a chief judge. So how is it that no one gets punished for this and the DOJ tells U.S. that our allegations are without meit?

Paul Traub got a slap on the wrist fine in eToys and then became partners with fraudster Marc Dreier and Ponzi schemer Tom Petters. But Traub is Romney's pal, so he never has to go to jail. Another guy who never had to go to jail is Marty Lackner, who was brother of Minnesota Asst. US. Attorney J. Lackner.

That is HEAD of the DOJ's Criminal Divison - J Lackner.

So how is it that Marty Lackner was a partner of the crimes; but never gets indicted?

-------------- Because he (purportedly) committed suicide!


U.S. Trustee Denies Allegations of Bain Capital CoverUp

Source: Executive Office of United States Trustee

Today, Laser Haas is in reception of the following letter from the U.S. Department of Justice, Executive Office of United States Trustee via its Office of General Counsel. To wit;

December 16, 2013

Mr. Laser Haas
[email protected]

Dear Mr. Haas;

- - - This responds to your facsimile of October 26, 2012, making a complaint against Roberta DeAngelis, United States Trustee for Region 3, and Mark Kenney, Trial Attorney, in connection with the case of eToys, Inc., Case No. 01-706 (Bankr. D. Del.). You allege that Ms. DeAngelis and Mr. Kenney acted in bad faith in their supervision of this bankruptcy case to benefit Bain Capital and to conceal their fraud. ----

- - - To respond to your inquiry, we reviewed information received from the Office of the United States Trustee with responsibility for this case as well as information obtained from the courts' dockets involved with this case and associated appeals. ---

----- Although we understand that you are not satisfied...... "after a review of the record and the facts before us, we conclude your allegation is without merit. As to the complaint that Ms. DeAngelis and Mr. Kenney improperly benefited Bain Capital, we find no evidence to support this assertion.

Yours truly owns CLI, a CA corporation that was approved to handle the eToys bankruptcy. The stock went to $85 per share; but eToys only get $18 (or less) per share. It was the plan to sell the bankrupt eToys to Bain/Kay Bee Toys for $3 to $5.4 million dollars. The party that took eToys public but made hundreds of millions vanished, is none other than Goldman Sachs (See NY Times story of March 2013 "Rigging the IPO Game".

The MNAT law firm works for Goldman Sachs in Delaware and has CONFESSED lying about that issue, in order to become the eToys attorney. Where, once inside eToys, with a sworn oath by MNAT to protect its client (eToys), then MNAT - by acts of PERJURY - asked for (and rec'd) permission from the Delaware Bankruptcy Court to Destroy eToys Books n Records. This hurt MNAT's court approved client (eToys) for the sake of its secret client (Goldman Sachs).


To put it succinctly, there are more than 300 crimes that have transpired, involving billions of dollars; and we have CONFESSIONS to extensively heinous and egregious defilements of the integrity of the judicial process. Whereas, Romney's (secret) law firms of TBF and MNAT have openly broken the law. Then I found Smoking Gun proof a couple of years later; which compelled the bad faith parties to confess. The law mandates that the parties be removed from the eToys, FAO Schwartz and Kay Bee cases;

but the U.S. Trustee's office said they don't care!



Office of United States Trustee must do their job policing the bankruptcy courts. Here's the U.S. Trustee Motion to Disgorge the Traub firm. It states in parts 19 & 35 that the acts were deliberate and concludes in part 35 that fraud on the court transpired.

Here is the link to the EOUST letter to yours truly (Letter from EOUST).

In the War Against the Homeless - Where Do You Stand?

I'm watching with great anxiety, the trial of the Fullerton Police who brutally beat and murdered homeless man Kelly Thomas. Because we fought a battle against the cops bad faith from the beginning (see articles here & here) - many a person send me updates and suggestions to work with the Kelly Thomas Foundation for the Homeless.

Laser - the homeless guy.

Just a few months ago, I spoke to Ron Thomas, the retired Los Angeles County Sheriff who was the father of Kelly Thomas. Previously, Ron Thomas has held many rallies in Fullerton, CA - seeking justice. He also created the Kelly Thomas Memorial Foundation for the Homeless, in honor of his son Kelly Thomas. Ron and I had discussed having a special event to raise $20,000.00 or so for the charity. Ron Thomas wanted to do so; but the on coming trial just put too much anxiety in the air. Sadly, the event will have to wait till some time next year.

Ron Thomas didn't know my real name, until recently. Even when I presented to him, during the 1st Kelly Thomas fund-raiser, with a hundred brand new women's Harley Davidson blue jeans. That is because he has enough to deal with and my debacle with others need not bother him further. But I did tell him, as we spoke about the charity event - that I had a surprise for him.

That surprise - is that yours truly - is also a homeless man.

Now, granted, I'm in the state of flux because of a real bizarre set of circumstances far different than most. The truth of the matter is, I choose to be homeless. Now those of you who are smirking and saying "just another bum" - to you I say No Way besmirches - I've got good reason; as do most other homeless people.

Like a Afghan war vet with special circumstances making it hard to function in society; I've got things just as bizarre. People are dead in the particular battle I'm in (Racketeering Romney case); and I simply can't put others in harms way.

My brother and many, many people, like Sybil from NY and Mr. Ellenike (a Greek Historian extraordinary) have all offered me their place to stay. But the eToys shareholder who joined with me - had to shoot & kill an assailant - and my daughter was abducted. It is just real simple. Either I give up and let Romney & his RICO Gang win - where I can get on with a normal life. Or I stay away from the normal state of being. It is wrong to burden others with my struggles, simply because of society's need to keep U.S. all conform.

No business owner wants me and my baggage; and I don't blame them. Nor can I promise any company long term utilization of my talents as an executive who managed thousands. This is because my quest to arrest Mitt Romney is a mandate - paramount. (You may think it impossible, but all things big are never easy).

Besides, being homeless and existing like an easy target has made me free. I face each day with the tasks of the battle at hand (more legal brief draftings, studying the law, making friends in the battles against tyranny, cronyism and corruption like Horace Boothroyd III - who provided me the picture below). Spending 18 hours a day at the quest and such is my life's work. Unfortunately, until I defeat the enemy - the pay sucks. Meanwhile, each day, I face the need of getting two meals and my $1 shower at the rec center - usually with great success. Often, I'm even able to feed others

Every homeless person has just as solid a story and/or reason for being where they are.

Beating, Stabbing and Setting Homeless Sleepers on Fire!

Our dear Kelly Thomas saga and its extreme acts of violence upon the homeless, is not as seldom as you'd think. There are vigilantes who go after the homeless under some perverted sense of justice that they are higher up on the evolutionary ladder; and must rid society of the less fortunate ilk. One guy went around stabbing homeless people in the back while they slept and left a "death warrant" written by his own hand - as justification (see the N.Y. Daily News story - here). In Van Nuys, California, one woman was horrifically set on fire while sleeping on a bench (see story - here).

How serious would the war on homeless be, if the homeless - in turn - went to war on those who had homes?

There's a civil war out here, against those who are down trodden. That is because none of the U.S. wishes to see skid row outside our front door. It makes one feel extremely uncomfortable. Common sense tells U.S. that such does not bode well for safety. Be that as it may, does our desire for comfort, in combination with our apathy for others plight, give U.S. grounds to make a war upon the homeless?

What does such say about who we are as a people, nation and planet?

We all struggle to get through life's viscous and never ending costs on one level or another. Student loans never-ending, taxes and gas prices on the rise. Veterans returning and finding it hard to cope. Single mom and/or dads. Losing your home to storm, fire, sink hole. Not many of U.S. can even begin to guess how many in the Philippines are still suffering and may never, ever see a home again. The lists goes on and on.

When devastating dynamics hit hard, some reach out to family, friends and their strength of will to struggle back. Others simply can't seem to get their neck above water. Those with no where and/or no one to go to - become homeless. It simply is a fact of life.

For such - what is to be done? --------- What is society to do - about homeless persons?

Homelessness and Sleeping in Your Car is a Crime - Worldwide!

It is not only happening here in the U.S. - in England a reporter was fined for sleeping in his car (story - here). Just this week there was an article in the SoCal papers about how Venice, California was cracking down on homeless people in their vehicles by giving them fines for sleeping in their cars.

The police are allowed to be detainer and jury if they find you with a blanket in your car, and/or with cans of food or drink. If you are caught with a pee bottle - you are subject to being hauled into the jail house and getting your car confiscated (because diabetics don't exist in Venice). A Judge reviewed the Laws on such as too broad and unconstitutional. It did not slip by the court that what Venice Beach seeks to do, is slap the arse's of the homeless in such a fashion that they'll move over to L.A. County or elsewhere.

In other words - Not In My Back Yard!

Poverty Is - As Poverty Does!
--------- - Living on Minimum Wage is Homelessness!

We are in a country where our elected officials don't want a minimum wage that makes sense. Even when Australia, with its $15 minimum wage - is the only country that dodge the recent worldwide financial debacles; our elected officials continue to fight over making it just $10 per hour here in America.

This, from guys who get $150,000 per year the rest of their lives - for voting down $10 per hour.

------------------------------------------ Now That's a Crime!

McDonalds put out a false report and got slammed, when it tried to make it appear that anyone working for its minimum wage could (easily) make ends meet. The fact of the matter is, the number one thing that costs U.S. all too much money is rent. A one bedroom apartment here in Los Angeles is $1000 per month plus. Even if you made $10 per hour that equates to $1700 per month. Minus taxes - if you are lucky - you'll take home around $1350. That leaves (again - if you are lucky) - $350 per month for food, clothes, insurance, cell phone.

And forget about gas or car (G-d forbid you should get caught sleeping in it).

Zoning laws MUST change
. --- There's one new towering building in the heart of Los Angeles that charges $750 per month for studios. In New York City, people are finding re-zoned areas where they are living in an entire apartment that would have been just 1/2 the size of the bedroom I had in 2001. We can make it easier on all of U.S. if the wealthy didn't make all the damn rules.

After all - no homeless could EVER get away with sleeping in front of a Beverley Hills home!

What About a Bruce Willis 5th Element Styled - 1 Room Apartment?

We can have a Bruce Willis type pad such as he had in 5th Element. No one REALLY needs a full size refrigerator. No one REALLY needs a queen/king bed. Couches that serve as a put away bed - no longer have to be back breakers of steel rods with 1/2 inch mattresses made of foam. They call them lounge chairs and such now.

We simply MUST adapt to the reality that wage supply has not kept up with the fact there's less and less rooms to go around!

Back last year, a good Orange County Register Columnist (David Whiting) hit the nail on the proverbial head with his March 2012 article titled "Dumb laws? Cities ban sleeping in cars". It is a real short article on the first page - I suggest you read it.

Meanwhile, here's nearly 1/2 of it with David Whiting's conclusion apropos;

I bought a car specifically to sleep in.

I didn't buy it to nap in the office parking lot. If I were the napping type, I'd do that at my desk.

And I didn't get my car as a substitute for The Couch where men supposedly go when domestic trouble arises. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Before I met my lovely wife, Sue, I lived with a woman in a mobile home on a dirt road near some railroad tracks.


If You Beat Up on & Oppress the Homeless - Won't They will simply Go AWAY!

The greater Los Angeles Food Coalition is feeding the homeless at night; and that's pissing off the homeowners who don't want it happening in their neighborhood. After all - it might encourage more homeless to get in line for the free meal (damn those bums). There are instances all over the place - of evictions of the homeless. See the story of that and other tales of homeless people being evicted at te La.curbed.com website (here).

As for me, I like the church in Oregon doing their thingy

Her, in his own words by Horace Boothroyd III (whom I lovingly call Mr. III) - is what the picture below is all about;

When Portland police arrest houseless people for sleeping publicly, cops throw away the blankets, clothes, and sleeping bags they find. In protest of this police theft policy during cold nights, at 2pm today, Fight Church dumped the contents of an overflowing 2-ton trailer onto W. Burnside & 6th: all in plastic bags: blankets, sleeping bags, gloves, earmuffs, hats, scarves, and clothes, all collected through the Efryting Drive, in front of Downtown Chapel. Clothes were then sorted on the street and brought inside the Downtown Chapel for distribution to the houseless. KOIN 6, FOX 12, and The Oregonian covered the event so that Fight Church could deliver the message regarding police harassment of the houseless. No one was arrested!



In the War Against the Homeless - What Side Are You On?

So tonight, because security is now beefed up for shopping during Christmas, there's a bored security guy who knows we park our car from 1 am till 5 am by Starbucks. I will need to avoid his police wannabe'ness. When he first banged on our hood of the car (actually put a dent in it and deliberately bent our radio antenna) - and scared/forced U.S. to go elsewhere; the Starbucks manager heard about it and told him to leave the regular customers alone. (Where I get my 2 free meals - most often - is word around SB's that I'll do blogs & websites - etc., for the business entrepreneurs who come to SB and meet clients. In turn - they feed me. Isn't that "working".

But the Security guy told me he hates homeless people - so he beeps his horn around us every 10 mins., until 5 am.

Therefore, I will sneak into my storage locker after the cleaning girls leave at 10 pm. The gate doesn't close until midnight and the office closed at 9 pm. I go into my locker (which I learned how to make it appear like it is locked from the outside). Then I weigh down the doors with weights of 150 lbs. So - even if someone were to come by and check - they couldn't lift the doors. (If they could, being that the locks ARE on there - would such be "unlawful" entry)? I will remain until the gate re-opens at 6 am. Then I'll scurry off to the bathroom and back to Starbucks (my online haven heaven).

Did you know there's laws too - about sleeping in storage lockers?

--------------------------------------------------------------------Merry Christmas!

I've got many bones to pick with "the church"; but this guy Rocks!

He is stating stuff - oh so good to hear - from one held so dear!
