What’s Really Coming Next.

Shelter-dwellers! Former ne’er do-wellers!    Next for this site will be embedding some testing protocols and softwares for our personal use. These will be in the areas of discovery, 16 types testing and the like, as well as some sophisticated aptitude and...

Ways to Contribute

They Don't Know Who We Are My experiences have taught me that the average unhoused person compares favorably over their lifetimes for success versus the average housed person. Lots of prodigies and shooting stars out here. PWR   information-. Are you an artist?  Would...

What’s Coming Next

Or not. Is it necessary to drive home the point? Who knows?  The city of Oxnard has given us this option. We have to consider it, as advocates for change. Or I have to consider it, as an individual offended by their actions and remarks. I won’t write about this...

Shelter stuff

Thanks! Thanks, Mercy House! Under the bed storage is a welcome innovation, rare in a level one shelter. You guys are hitting home runs daily.    WTF is going on with stealing? And the other thing I won’t mention, ever?    In this room are leaders,...

Mercy House homers in first at-bat

Mercy House led off their Oxnard campaign with a towering, tape-measure shot, deep into the cheap seats. Allowing us to bring a beverage over the threshold is a seemingly tiny thing, but if the shelter is meant to be used during the day, we really need to have daytime...

Update:

As you know, we’ve been threatened with more punishment tomorrow if things don’t go well today. I assume that would include press conferences and the like, anything that would bring attention to our cruel and bizarre recent treatment. It’s almost...

Thank you to everyone

Thank you to the unhoused, TheUnhoused, and those interested in stating their learned opinion on the matter.   Thanks to The Red Zone memo, you now have a voice on this issue. People will want to know what you have to say.   Thank you to the remaining and...

Ball in our court

I’m not offended for myself, I understand the point of the exercise and even the angry language, to an extent. All of us do.  But when I see several people among us who need hospital care for physical maladies and injuries , someone like Chuck, over 60 in a...

Staging a sit-in

    Well, that or a variation of it is on the table for discussion.   Why a sit-in? Instead of a march, or news conference, or press release, or official position? For one reason: the money shot.   I know The City thinks the money shot is any view...

Streetside Encounters

Just had an interesting exchange with two of our streetside unhoused, future community leaders. Maybe not quite ready for it yet.   One Hispanic male, hard guy, mid 30s. A young latina, vivacious, can’t be out of her teens. This one is FULL of power. A...

What We Face

I’ve been fed several different hoax stories today, in an effort to get me to post something stupid. I’ll take a moment to compliment the hoaxers, because that really is, or used to be, a great strategy to use on me.  One story was a horrific story of the...

The Big Problem

Well, I think most of us, on both sides of the HNGZ memo, can understand that we can’t just meekly file out of the Zone for 7 days and walk around after that like nothing happened.  We’d be laughingstock, milquetoasts, pansies. We, and by this I mean I,...

One way to handle things

If we, TheUnhoused, decided to make a goal of becoming the most significant political entity in the County of Ventura, we’d go about it like this:   Call it ‘political strategizing while staying within a moral code’....

Concept of the day: No Interviews

Yep, we need to deliver some variation of ‘we’ll comment at a later day’ or ‘ we’ll be releasing a statement about that’ We want to relax now, keep our own council. We’ll meet soon. I need everyone’s contact...

Armory Shelter Memo 2

Brother Bill, what do you think of this for a memo? Hey, it’s Peter. No, the other guy. No, the other other guy. I’m going to address everyone here as leaders, because you are, even if you don’t know it yet. I propose that we table our...
