HALLMARK GEMS OF TRUTH - PART II

NOT JUST ANOTHER DAY AT THE BEACH -

BSC, CA – Before we get back to 'the rest of the story' as the tagline goes and the guy in the hammock, the AT&T workers went back to work on Monday, organizer [name withheld by reporter] said. But the real issue is more complicated than the boots on the ground know. The money angle of Mama Bell making $1,000,000,000 profit a quarter [2016], the CEO taking home $27M, and the parent company outsourcing outlets to stand-alone owners [to compete with Boost Mobile, CREDO, and Metro PCS] may be the reasons their 'shop steward' told them because that's what he was told, but like the hosing all the Bernie Sanders SEIU fans got with the BLM infiltration/hijacking, it ain't what it seems.

The real reason for Ma Bell's bullish attitude toward the young workers who build and maintain the mobile side of AT&T is because as you read this, a bill is speeding through the sellouts of Sacramento to affix a mini cell tower on every light pole, every neighborhood to eliminate 99% of the mobile workforce employed now. Imagine living inside a bug zapper, but they will say 'there's no problem.' [Were the days not shortened, no flesh would survive.] This is the other reason you haven't and won't be hearing this news in the Establishment media.

So far there is no word about the lawmakers in the other 35 states facing AT&T sharecropping. So what can you or I do about this bullshit? You can write letters, do 'honk 'n' waves with signs, or meet in churches, but the real power starts at the grassroots level: the local city council. First research the bill number, attend the next council meeting and use the public speaker 2-3 minutes to sound the alarm. There's always going to be a street corner to stand on.

Now back to the dude in the hammock, why everyone became so fond of him and how he fit in, also more pics of the strikers, all after the jump.

HALLMARK GEMS OF TRUTH

ALL'S FAIRE IN LOVE AND WAR -

BSC, CA – This past Mother's Day weekend brought a return to Costa Mesa, their fairgrounds, and the Gem Faire. It would also start a chain of events leading to the picture below, as AT&T workers in 36 states staged a walkout to protest the old 'squeeze play' by Ma Bell Mobile.


A curious thing came forth from this latest news post. The cosmic or esoteric level has a boundary against the Tesla-risque side of the world we know. In today's jargon, it's kinda like CERN. On this activist outing BSC went to that level to surf with Divine Intervention, at the beach of course.

Make the jump for an adventure you won't find in a travel mag column, complete with pictures as fresh as yesterday. Oh, the lead-in shot did come from yesterday, lol.
