#ConfessionsofaVampirehunter from #Stockholm

Vampires are older in Northern Europe. They are closer ethnically to Eastern European vampires. They dwell in darkness more both literally and figuratively. Today I saw this and wondered if evil can be captured in stone.

#micropoetry "Out of Touch"

If you won't talk to them as people,
you can't take their money.
Because it is dishonest.
But people lie all the time.
Especially for money.

#KeithScott was murdered by the police #BlackLivesMatter

Mr. Scott was reading and waiting for his son at the bus stop. A police officer shot him to death for it-- and for being black. Now Charlotte won't release the body cam video. I wonder why that is? They are also trying to say the cop is black. Even if true, that doesn't make this any less bad.

Understandably black people protested, and there was some violence. But the protesters didn't kill anyone. I don't blame them for being angry. This must stop. Police must stop murdering people for being black and for existing.

#SocialSecurityDisability hearing times appear to be speeding up #lawyerslife

Tennessee is picking up some of the bulk of Greensboro hearings or so it appears in my practice. My hearings are ticking up each month, and that's great for my clients. They've waited too long. I worry about them. I don't know how anyone survives waiting years. It is unfortunate, but it is preventable. Congress, however, chooses not to help people by speeding up the process. They cut funding for the Social Security Administration offices, and that slows down the process. They make less money available to pay for judges and courthouses. This is all very deliberate.

Congress wants less assistance for people in need, but they want more prisons. They want to criminalize mental illness and homelessness. I see it everyday.

Things need to change.

#Greensboro contributes to #globalwarming

Is this necessary? Destructive and unimaginative. Typical developers.
