SLOAN:———–Florida Outreach coalition—or Samuel’s house—best disposition for
Kari –Yes drinking will destroy the future for you both—the relationship—- disintegration–
I have swam and conversed with the director of the Coalition—–she is strong willed and
experienced and bright—-appeal to her –tell her you know me and I referred you for Kari.
try and work something out as the stress will turn her to drink—-and destroy what chance
she has.——best of luck—Jerry
I replied today:
Morning, Jerry –
I already spoke to Sam Kaufman about Kari some months ago. Sam is Chairman of Florida Keys Outreach Coalition’s Board of Directors. He said he felt something could be worked out, if Kari completed the JIP program successfully. However, going through FKOC’s program, or the Samuel’s House program, will not help Kari, if, due to her felony record, she cannot find paying work in Key West, during the day time. FKOC does not allow its clients to work at night; Samuel’s House might not, either. Even if Kari can find paying work in Key West, she will not earn enough money to be able to pay Key West rents after she is out of FKOC or Samuel’s House. Going into either program will only delay the return to society disaster, if I don’t somehow produce a wad of money.
Meanwhile, Kari is really suffering in the jail due her allergy to the soy meat substitute diet, and perhaps due to scabies. She told me the other day, after dinner, she had an immediate reaction to the “meatballs” she’d eaten in the jail cafeteria. You are a physician in good standing in this area. Can you call Sheriff Ramsay and speak with him about Kari and any other inmates who might be reacting to a soy diet? Kari has dragons galore to try to come to terms with, to complete the JIP program in good standing. She does not need soy and scabies dragons on top of that dragging her down.
The actual coalition director is a woman —–she gave me her phone and address
and name at one point but I was swimming and put it somewhere and apparently lost it.
She was in the process of making the coalition viable…..
I would think the scabies may be causing Kari her most troublesome symptoms or adding to an already highly annoying symptom complex. It is treatable
with money you could get her food.–solution to that problem. $$$$$$$
my sincere best wishes to you both—-Jerry ( I realize I am not solving the problems)..–SORRY SORRY !! Jerry
Jerry, scabies is not causing Kari’s big weight gain, her awful indigestion, her feeling she’s about to pop; soy meat substitute is causing that, and, from what I read online, her soy allergy could be causing her skin sores and itching; she is adamant it is not scabies, and the jail nurse and doctor don’t think it’s scabies. I cannot get food to Kari in the jail; that is not allowed, just as it is not allowed for me to give her prescription drugs, even her own; they have to be approved by the infirmary doctor, or by an outside physician to which she is referred and taken. If she had meds when she went in, she did not, the meds would have been taken from her and put in her locker, to be returned to her when she was released.
I wonder how Father Steve Braddock might feel about FKOC being so mismanaged and in need of the new director’s help? He runs the operation. He is its CEO. She works for him. Maybe you have FKOC mixed up with Southern Assistance Homeless League, which was a mess for a long time, and some years ago Steve stopped having dealings with SHAL and was in on the starting of the Continuum of Care, from which he and FKOC recently pulled back having an active interest, due to internal politics reminding of the SHAL internal politics.
Maybe it’s time for Archangel Michael to pay folks a personal visit.
The more I read on Facebook and elsewhere about the wannabe future US Presidents, the more I like the idea of voting for Kari and me in 2016.
Further encouragement for voting for Kari and me showed up in my Facebook account yesterday.
Take a real good look at this lady, this is what a two face liar looks like, remember her for she want to be the President of these United States!!!
It’s up to us to stop her, for we have the power!
Andy Saunders there you go with your left wing hate GW talking points calling an idiot and a draft dodger . Your biased and cheap insults do not help your argumentAndy Saunders yes Sloan lets be isolationist and let Saddam take over the whole Middle East and all the oil. let Iran and any other radical Islamic nutty country get nuclear weapons then quit funding and defending Israel and just let the chips fall where they may; and lets see how that works out for you?
Sloan Bashinsky Works out for me? Understand, Andy, I am not afraid to die. Often, I have hoped I would go to sleep at night and not wake up in the morning; or that a sniper would take me out, who was pissed off at what I published somewhere, or said in a public meeting. I am left wing and right wing and no wing. Yesterday, in a post at http://goodmorningkeywest.com/?p=31912, I advised Bernie Sanders to pledge to pull all American troops out of the Middle East, and to cut off all aid to Israel, and to apologize to Islam for America meddling in its affairs, and to warn Islam, if it attacks America again, I just might drop an H-bomb on Mecca. Can you imagine the commotion that would cause in Islam, thinking an American president would actually do that? I’m wondering why an American president didn’t already tell Islam to back down, leave America alone, or kiss Mecca and all Islamic holy places adios.
Andy Saunders Sloan, Wars cost money but some are justified and necessary. the nanny state of liberal/ socialistic. communistic. democratic/ policies are going to destroy and bankrupt our country not the military
Sloan Bashinsky The American wars in Vietnam, Central America, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq were not justified, but were driven by the US military industrial complex, and if you think they otherwise, you really do need a remedial course in reality. You also need a remedial course in America’s true role in the Middle East. As for my supporting Bernie Sanders, he makes more sense to me than any other candidate, however, he is too right wing for me in his foreign policy, so far. As I wrote in yesterday’s post at my website, and again in today’shttp://goodmorningkeywest.com/?p=31931 post, which includes this FB thread, I’m going to vote for me and my lady Kari in 2016. I figure between me, the undisputed llunatic, and her, the convicted felon doing another stint in the county jail, for drinking and violating her probation again, we at least offer America a ticket that is honest: what you see and hear, is what you get.
Andy Saunders As far as remedial classes go you need one in basic economics, If you are going to vote for Bernie Sanders. To think that socialistic polices are going to work here; go to Greece Spain Italy France, Venezuela and many other countries throughout history and ask them how it has been working out. We saw under Carter and now Obama how bigger government works out and we saw what less govt under Reagan and then Gingrich/Clinton years did compared to them. Its a no brainer; but i guess you want another president to put more people in poverty and on govt assistance?
Sloan Bashinsky Actually, the problem in Iran was the Shah, backed by America. When the Shah got overthrown and run out of that country, America lost its ally over there, so it turned to Saddam Hussein and Iraq, and beefed him up to replace Iraq and be America’s ally against Iran, who had viewed the Shah as an American puppet. Then, Iran viewed Saddam as an American puppet. Then, of all things, President Reagan did Iran-Contra, with Israel being the middle man for the weapons exchange, which beefed up Iran’s arsenal. You have a seriously naive view of the American government’s foreign policy, in which every American president going back to Roosevelt has had a not nice hand, to stop this flashback at America’s entry into WW II, which Roosevelt orchestrated by not warning Pearl Harbor of the Japanese attack, because Roosevelt wanted America to declare war. He was a Democrat. Truman dropped the 2 a-bombs, he wrote in his dairy, not to cause the Japanese to surrender, they already were t trying to surrender, but to intimidate the Russians. I read that part of Truman’s diary in a US national magazine several years ago. President Eisenhower, before leaving office, warned America to beware of the military industrial complex. President Kennedy started talking about his reservations about Vietnam, and shortly after was assassinated. Dr. Martin Luther King came out against Vietnam, and then he was assassinated. You cannot trust anything American presidents say about American war, be they Republican or Democrat presidents. You should know that. Imagine the good that could have been done in America with the massive amounts of money wasted in America’s foreign wars, starting with Vietnam, which was fought to get Vietnam’s rubber trees and other natural resources, after the CIA helped Ho Chi Minh beat the French. Ho wanted to do business with America, but then America asked for too much, so Ho, not trusting China, turned to Russia. You did not get taught that in history courses, in school, nor did the American news journalists report it. Nothing changed since then, other than geographic locations and faces
Andy Saunders so in Vietnam an now Iraq thousands of brave American soldiers died for nothing because liberal pacifists refuse to let is win the wars by giving in , giving up, or pulling out before the job is done We can argue about the merits of the war but you don’t just quit and have them all die for nothing
Sloan Bashinsky Andy, you view history in a way that agrees with your comfort zone. That is not allowed to me. For example. all those American Vietnam vets went over there and died, or were maimed, or were mentally and spiriually destroyed, or somehow came back half okay, because America wanted Vietnam’s rubber trees and natural resources. It was capitalistic greed. It also was the American military wanting to flex its muscles, try out its new weapons, against the Russians, who were supplying Ho his weapons. Ho was not a communist. He never was. He did what he felt was the best way to win. America’s greed drove him to the Soviets. I feel about the Soviet’s brand of communism about like I feel about America’s brand of imperialism.
Last today, another round of Facebook chat with a Big Pine Key resident, who has told me several times that God told her she is a member of the Elect.
JUST IN CASE JESUS DID NOT TELL YOU ABOUT THE ELECT, I WILL.
