Learned to live in The Be Jahmin' Now!
My Take on efin' Reality
Since my freshman year at Ohio State University in 1963 to today, I 've
been living in either extreme poverty or just plain poverty! lol And today,
I'm not alone! 143,000,000 of us are either existing below the official b.s.
federal poverty line or the rest of us are paycheck-to-paycheck. The history
behind this has been cleverly kept almost impossible to figure out - for me, a
lifetime almost, lol. Connecting the events of what really has brought America
to her present insanity is efing, mind-boggling. I and others are very possibly
decedents of white settler, colonial, criminal, racists.
I and others must live knowing that We the Poor are among the millions of
poor who compose in part several color-based, economic-class-based and
urban vrs. city groupings: First off, the original Indigenous Peoples whose
pristine lands were stolen by white European settlers. Once, over 15,000,000
people freely moved to anywhere and everywhere in America. Today, there are
over 300,000,000 of us, mostly in large cities. A merciless genocide led. The
First People's nations and tribes were encountered, hunted down and murdered.
The "Discovery Doctrine" was used to "legally" steal the land of anyone found
not to be of land-owner, white Christian ancestry or citizen of other colonizer
countries. Internment camps were hastily created, followed-up by forced marches
to tracts of land re-named "reservations", (then undesirable for white settlement).
Greed, expanding empire and racism has culminated into today's sprawl of malls,
highways, clear-cut wildlands, mountain-top removals, pipelines, poverty and despair,
over-crowded, private prisons, etc. A few U.S. Indigenous reservation lands house
gambling casinos or lease oil, water and minerals rights, (virtually never given-up
willingly) to violent, machine-like corporations - as some sort of "reparations" that
supposedly pays for the millions of children and people killed or displaced.
America is divided between the vast majority who are poor, made so by the
intentional greed of the rich at the expense of everyone else, either making us
poor if we are not willing to be "better-off", by working us at odious tech jobs
or working us so that we would have to violate our common sense: to not
pollute water, food and air. Or we might be made to accept unreasonable risks
in dangerous manufacturing or construction projects. You name it, and many,
if not all elites are not putting People over profits - just the reverse!
Cities are either suffering crumbling infrastructures, or morphing into super-fund
sites, or sacrifice zones of low wealth survivors. All Americans live without
"Single-payer Medicare for All". Rural Americans do not have access to doctors or
near-by hospitals or health clinics. Like the Palestinians, if you are not rich (or not
willing to do their bidding), we, no matter what country, are all learning what it's
like to live without freedom from violent oppression by a 1% "ethnic rich" ruling
class. Multi-national corporate malevolence has forced us poor into survival mode.
War-like corporatists have forced mass migration and regional displacements through
mass destruction of infra-structure, economic sanctions and generalized aggression.
Ecological destruction has led to longterm systemic famines, causing genocide. First
People's lands were seized at gunpoint or worse everywhere, on every continent, but
Antarctica! We're next on "their" agenda.
We, me, or maybe you, may be included in the approximately seventy million
disabled Americans, the elderly and millions of children barely existing. There
are over two million incarcerated people in America: fathers, mothers, family
members and orphaned children remain in crowded, inhumane conditions. Many
inmates suffer from untreated mental and other medically needed conditions in the
under-staffed, for-profit internment-like camps due to often questionable sentences
brought about by inadequate defense council. Poverty is slavery, especially as in
for-profit privatized, state prisons. Many communities of Color and of Poor Whites
are "red-lined" and over-policed, putting the residents in a constant state of stressed
existence, not knowing from day-to-day and from paycheck-to-paycheck, whether to
somehow flee or stand their ground and fight back! Not ever knowing the loving, peaceful
feeling of real joy and restful relaxation! We poor must learn to self-organize with others.
Ancestors of many of the current ruling classes were "plantations" owners - written into
history as so-called colonists - some whose heirs would be today's "banksters". And some
of these scoundrels are revered as patriots then and today. Crooks who banked some MAJOR
wealth from their unchallenged cruelty and forced labor-camp slave holdings. Imagine: stolen,
robbed, chained and murdered like many indigenous African People - many children. Captured.
Hunted-down. Brutalized. Branded and sold as if they were cattle, "labor" commodities. Slave
auctions brought immense accumulated wealth that grew over the years and decades. Blood
money that paid for tall buildings, ships and railroads and flows still, gaining immense accrued
interest through many U.S. and trans-national banks. Corporate coffers will someday soon, be
confiscated and returned to the rightful owners, just as happened for the victims of the Nazis,
whose similar crimes against the Jews and the Romas is well documented. It's time for another
war-crimes and crimes against humanity trial as happened during the Nuremberg Trials.
Yet, slavery still lives today as private prison labor, low wage, non-union jobs, non-union
sweatshops, child sex trafficking and immoral child abduction by I.C.E. from their immigrant
parents. If most Americans are not direct decedents of these first American colonist settlers,
then we're the decedents of immigrants, stolen and brutalized African, Asian, South American
Indigenous Peoples and others - or perhaps decedents of the First Nation Indigenous Peoples.
Irregardless, today with few exceptions, most of us who are poor, are so because of a rigged
system, that stems directly from these original criminal minds that came mostly from Europe.
Many of the "plantation" owner elites, have successfully passed on their wealth and corporate
corruption schemes from coast to coast and north to south, up to the present day.
Where did all these damn police come from? Not out of thin air. Law enforcement, normally
would be at village and city level, hired by, hired from, and paid for by the citizens, collectively.
Taxes done ethically and morally right for all equally is the way that works. Security forces for
the ridiculously wealthy slave owners were originally privately-hired militias, formed from the
desperately poor of the day. These individuals were chosen for their hunting and combat abilities.
They took orders directly from their paymasters, the plantation slaveholder class. This system of
"human hunters" who willingly hunted down runaway slaves, for their bosses, the "slaveholder"
elites, worked in tandem and with impunity. And this would go on through the years, to involve
other enforcement duties that has grown gruesomely out of hand.
Today's militarized police has its roots in slavery - a cross between slave enforcement
and population control. We poor are kept in perpetual low wealth, with few exceptions,
living in a nightmare, paycheck-to-paycheck "consumer" trap. The trap forces us to
ruthlessly compete for an artificially constructed scarcity of available jobs. Most of
us (without credit) are unable to pay for a sudden $400 cash emergency, like a co-pay
for a for-profit hospital or perhaps the need for another refrigerator or a car repair.

|Antarctic Icecap||Arctic Icecap|
the Arctic summer is waning, sea ice extent continues to drop. In early
August, ice-free pockets began to develop in the Beaufort and Chukchi
Seas and expanded steadily through the first half of the month.
Sea ice extent stood at 5.15 million square kilometers (1.99 million square miles) on August 17, essentially tied with 2007 for the third lowest extent for the date since the satellite record began in 1979 (Figure 1a). The August 17 extent was lower only in 2012 and 2019. The most notable feature during the first half of August was the development of substantial openings of the sea ice north of Alaska within the BeauAugust 2020 sea ice extent averaged 5.08 million square kilometers (1.96 million square miles), placing it at third lowest in the satellite record for the month. This was 360,000 square kilometers (139,000 square miles) above the record low set in 2012. As of September 1, Arctic sea ice extent stood at 4.26 million square kilometers (1.64 million square miles), the second lowest extent for that date in the satellite passive microwave record that started in 1979.
In our previous post, we noted the development of substantial openings of the sea ice north of Alaska within the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas, possibly related to the mid-July storm that spread out the ice cover. Since then, further melt has occurred in the area. Some of this ice appears to be multiyear, which tends to be resistant to melting away. Total sea ice extent at the September minimum will depend strongly on how much of the ice in this area melts from the remaining heat in the ocean, and on wind compaction or expansion of the overall ice edge (the line of 15 percent concentration). The Northwest Passage is largely open, but some ice remains. The Northern Sea route remains open.
Following a period of slow August ice loss, the pace quickened during the middle of the month as areas of low ice concentration melted away, only to slow again towards the end of the month with the onset of autumn in the Arctic. Overall, from August 15 through September 1, 2020, extent declined by 1.1 million square kilometers (425,000 square miles), more than the average 1981 to 2020 extent loss of 800,000 square kilometers (309,000 square miles) during the same period.
As assessed from August 15 to August 31, air temperatures at the 925 mb level (about 2,500 feet above sea level) were above average over much of the Arctic Ocean, continuing the basic pattern of warmth that prevailed through the first half of the month, most notably in the Kara Sea. Temperatures were below average over central Siberia (Figure 2b). The atmospheric circulation pattern shifted relative to the first half of the month to feature high pressure centered over the Laptev Sea and extending across the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas. Low pressure has been the dominant feature of the Norwegian Sea region.
The average sea ice extent for August 2020 as a whole is 5.08 million square kilometers (1.96 million square miles), placing it third lowest in the 42-year satellite record. Including 2020, the linear rate of decline for August sea ice extent is 10.7 percent per decade. This corresponds to a trend of 76,800 square kilometers (29,700 square miles) per year, or about the size of New Hampshire, Vermont, and Massachusetts combined. Over the satellite record, the Arctic Ocean has lost about 3.15 million square kilometers (1.22 million square miles) of ice in August, based on the difference in linear trend values in 2020 and 1979. This is comparable in size to about twice the size of the state of Alaska.
Antarctic sea ice growth in late winter has brought the ice extent substantially above average in late August for the first time in four years. Ice extent exceeded the 1981 to 2010 average over much of the Weddell Sea and off the Wilkes Land coast. A few areas of below-average extent persisted in the Davis Sea (south of Perth, Australia) and the northeastern Ross Sea. The cause appears to be persistent high air pressure in the western Weddell Sea and the Davis Sea that generate offshore cold winds on the eastern sides of the high-pressure areas. While Antarctica often has a trio of high pressure and low pressure areas surrounding it, for the second half of August there were just two such pairs.

Seventy-seven large fires have burned 3.7 million acres across the western states. Three new large fires were reported in Montana. Large fires in California and Wyoming continue to burn actively, some of them burning thousands of additional acres yesterday.
NIMO (Houseman) has been assigned to COVID-19 support at Forest Service headquarters in Washington, D.C. NIMO (Reinarz) has been assigned to provide wildland fire support to California. NIMO (Day) has been assigned to provide wildland fire support to federal land management agencies in Oregon and Washington.
Two hundred thirty-three soldiers from the 14th Brigade Engineer Battalion based out of Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Washington are deployed in support of the August Complex.
Two hundred thirty-four Marines from the 7th Engineer Support Battalion, 1st Marine Logistics Group, 1 Marine Expeditionary Force based out of Camp Pendleton, California are deployed in support of the Creek fire.
One RC-26 aircraft with Distributed Real-Time Infrared (DRTI) capability and support personnel from the 141st Air Refueling Wing (Washington Air National Guard) has been deployed to Fairchild AFB (Spokane, WA), in support of wildland fire operations.
Two MAFFS C-130 airtankers and support personnel from the 146th Airlift Wing (California Air National Guard) and one MAFFS C-130 airtanker and support personnel from each the 153rd Airlift Wing (Wyoming Air National Guard) and the 152nd Airlift Wing (Nevada Air National Guard) have been deployed to support wildland fire operations in California.
One fire suppression crew and one overhead personnel from Canada are supporting fire suppression efforts in northern California.
Seven fire suppression crews, 18 fire engines and 54 overhead personnel from Canada are supporting fire suppression efforts in Oregon.
During this unprecedented time, the safety of the public and all wildland fire responders is always the number one priority for all wildland fire agencies. For more information and links to the Geographic Area Plans, visit the NIFC COVID-19 page.
Rain is likely across much of Washington, western Oregon, and the Idaho Panhandle today behind a departing cold front. This front is expected to continue a southeasterly progression and result in breezy winds and low humidities for the grasslands of Idaho and Montana, portions of Utah, and much of Wyoming. Hot and dry conditions will persist for Southern California and Arizona. The remnants of Tropical Storm Beta will yield breezy winds and heavy rains at times from the Lower Mississippi Valley to the southern Appalachians.
