There is a whole scene where it is about everyone trying to be the biggest gangster, and they are killing each other, it is all bullshit of course, but people are dying. 

That is why you want your kids to study hard, be successful, and go live in the nice areas, you do not want your kids to get caught up in the street scene, and violence, and drugs, etc.

The ghettos are like meat grinders, and they just grind our youth up. 

So you want your kids to study hard, and to go live in the nice part of town.

And when I see rich white kids who think the drugs and areas like Compton are so cool, I try to tell them, stop trying to be a gangster and go learn to surf instead. Go be a lawyer and live in Malibu, whatever, the gang life is all bullshit.

Then they go to prison. And they get caught up in the whole prison thing. A lot of them turn gay in prison. I saw a guy who had a wife and kids, he got caught up in gangs and drugs and ended up in prison, and then he came out of prison gay and divorced his wife so that he could go deal drugs and be with his gay prison buddies. It is all bullshit.

Gangs, and prison, and all of that bullshit, I have seen it over and over, and it is all bullshit. 

Also, a lot of the guys who were trying to be so tough end up committing suicide. It is all bullshit. My Uncle spent 14 years in prison, and then committed suicide here in my apartment.

Gangs, and drugs, and crime, it is all bullshit. And when I see people who were good kids, and now they are covered in tattoos and they are on drugs, etc, I hate it. 

That is what is happening in Chicago. They all want to see who can be the toughest gangster. And it is all bullshit of course. They are killing each other over bullshit. 

Salute,

Tony V.

I did a quick Google search for hotels in Puerto Rico, and this one came up...

https://www.fairmont.com/puerto-rico/

It looks pretty nice.

They need to do some targeted marketing to the folks in Eastern Europe, as well as to the folks in Michigan and other states with cold winters.

Salute,

Pertaining to Puerto Rico as a tourist destination...

The people from Poland, and from the Ukraine, and from other places where it is cold in the winter can go on vacation in Puerto Rico, where it is nice and warm and sunny. The people of Puerto Rico can market themselves as a tourist destination for the people from Eastern Europe, etc.

And of course people from Michigan, and from other states where it is cold in the winter will want to go on vacation in Puerto Rico.

Salute,

Trump wants to sell it. Maybe the Poles will buy it.

We are not going to sell Puerto Rico.

And we need to welcome them as an official state.

Salute,

Puerto Rico can be rich, like Florida, and like Hawaii, and we need to make Puerto Rico a state.

I have a friend who is a doctor, and she goes on vacation to Puerto Rico, lots of people love Puerto Rico, and Puerto Rico has a great history, Puerto Rico is the oldest territory in the USA. Old San Juan is awesome.

So, here is what needs to happen, they need a big time banker, and they need to borrow money, and then they need to invest the money into clean energy for one thing, they can buy solar and wind power makers and they can generate electricity and they can sell electricity to the hotels, and to the restaurants, etc. The same way that we do here in Anaheim, we the people own the power company and we sell electricity to Disneyland, well Puerto Rico needs to do the same thing. And then as they make money the money goes into a General Fund, like here in Anaheim, and the people get to decide how they want to spend the money.

Also, Puerto Rico needs schools, build a few Universities, and cooking schools, and schools of fashion design, and other schools, music school, dance school, acting school, film school, etc, and schools which teach the Hospitality Industry, etc, like in Anaheim. Get the children of Puerto Rico to dream big dreams, and they will build a great future.

Puerto Rico also needs to set aside money to invest in Marketing, they need to market themselves as a tourist destination.

And the people need business loans to open restaurants, and resorts, and hotels, etc.

Puerto Rico can also have a giant Opera Hall where they can have concerts and stuff, and they can have concerts to raise money to help the orphans, and the widows, etc. And they can have theatres for plays, etc, etc, etc. And wonderful movie theatres, etc.

Puerto Rico just needs good bankers, and the people need to invest wisely, such as investing in public owned clean power, etc.

And they need lots of bookstores, and libraries.

Salute,

Tony V.

The Goya Salsa Verde is great, I always get it when I make tacos and burritos, it is also good on enchiladas, and it is also great on scrambled eggs and omelettes. I respect the Goya company for helping the needy during this difficult time, and I will continue to buy their products.

I also respect the Northgate Market here in Anaheim for staying open during the crisis and for making sure that we have access to healthy foods, and they have even managed to remain stocked on toilet paper for the most part, and also thanks to the Fiora toilet paper company of Anaheim, Solaris Paper, Inc. Northgate gets a lot of their inventory from Mexico, so it is important that we keep the goods flowing in from our Southern border. And Northgate has done a wonderful job supplying us with fresh baked bread, and fresh made tortillas, etc. Northgate is a great market.

Also, CVS pharmacy has done a wonderful job making sure that everyone has access to pharmaceuticals, and they sell boxes of California wine which makes everyone happy.

Another company which has impressed me is Quest Diagnostics, which has done a great job of providing testing for people. I have used Quest for years, and I saw how they rose to the top during the Corona crisis to do testing.

Also of note is UCI here in the OC which has been a leader in research, the cure for the Corona Virus might come from UCI. 

Salute,

It is pretty bad Bambu, when you ride the train you see homeless people all along the railroad tracks. It is a crisis. It was bad before the Corona Virus crisis, and it is even worse now, these are the worst times I have ever seen, it is scary.

Watch some movies about the Great Depression, including "The Grapes Of Wrath" starring Henry Fonda, my Grandparents came to California during the Great Depression with their families like the people in the movie. They lived in homeless camps and they picked fruit, even all of the children picked fruit, everyone worked. My Grandmother's family came from Colorado, and my Grandfather's family came from Arkansas. And they were grateful to have fruit to pick. Even Roy Rogers lived in a homeless camp and picked fruit when he first came to California, he came out from Ohio, and my Grandmother became friends with him, and my Brother married Roy Rogers' Granddaughter, Kristen. Anyhow, they all worked in the fields planting trees and picking fruit, etc.

My Grandmother went to work at the first McDonald's in San Bernardino when she was old enough, and she loved working there, they used to have car hops to bring your food out to your car, and that was what she did, she brought your food out to your car for you.

People in California became very creative during the Great Depression, and they all helped to create jobs to help each other. 

We can learn the lessons from the Great Depression, and from FDR, and Eleanor Roosevelt, etc. 

And Trump is smart to fight for better trade deals, China was killing us, California lost over 500,000 jobs to China alone. We need to create jobs again. China needs to buy from us, etc.

And meanwhile, we can hire the homeless people to plant trees, and to work in fields, like during the Great Depression. They can live in camps, and they can pick fruit, etc.

The whole state of California is covered with people growing food, and making wine, and cheese, etc. They can have food and shelter and they can be treated like human beings while they work in the fields. 

And we have unions for the farm workers, they will be treated like human beings...

On the issue of jobs for the homeless...

The homeless people can be hired to plant trees, and to do public landscaping, and they can lay cobblestones, etc, there are many jobs that the homeless people can do.

The homeless people can be hired to plant trees. They can also plant fruit trees, such as orange trees, and avocado trees, etc, which will provide food and jobs for people. During the Great Depression people came from all over to California to work in the fields and to plant orange trees, etc.

Salute,

Curious what the legality of painting BLM on public streets really is? I know that when they painted that thin blue line on streets inmany towns in NJ it was declared illegal by the feds.

It is a political statement. Should it be painted on a public roadway?  And is legal to do so?

I'm not quibbling about the message. Just curious about whether it's legal to deliver it in this manner.

After all, I am guessing that if I took blue and white paint and wrote Support Israel on the street, their would be a legal consequence.

So what is the legal stature of this political message delivery system? Anyone?

I support freedom, I support you being able to paint whatever you want on the street. One example is when people have the American flag painted on the sidewalk curb next to their address. I would have no problem with you painting whatever you want on the street. You can have an Israeli flag painted on the sidewalk curb here by your house and no one would mind.

I also support you being able to have whatever statue you want, etc. We had a statue of Saint Francis here at the entrance of my apartment complex, and a statue of Saint Anthony inside the lobby, but they removed them when a heartless new corporation bought the place. I support being able to have whatever statue one wants.

I support freedom of speech, and freedom of expression, and I will always support freedom.

Salute,

Tony V.

Citing a push to promote “anti-racist cultural values,” the assistant dean of diversity and inclusion, announced the change Friday.

John Wayne exhibit to be removed by USC after student protests over actor’s racist comments

https://ktla.com/news/local-news/john-wayne-exhibit-to-be-removed-by-usc-after-student-protests-over-actors-racist-comments/

-------------------

Removing is not "inclusion" but rather it is "exclusion." The dean of inclusion wants to do some excluding, he wants to exclude John Wayne and he wants to exclude the fans of John Wayne, and he wants to exclude the people in America who had ancestors who were cowboys, and he wants to exclude our history in the Wild West, etc.

USC needs a new dean of inclusion, who will do some including instead of excluding. 

John Wayne was an important part of Hollywood History, and should be included, not excluded.

Salute,

Tony V.

On the issue of housing, as Anaheim continues to grow...

We can build towers in the Platinum Triangle Community, and the towers can be huge, and they can have a grocery story and a pharmacy in each tower, and a doctor's office and a dentist's office, and a liquor store, and a gym, and a swimming pool on the roof, etc.

And the underground area can be used, like in Crystal City, Virginia, there can be underground transportation, and underground parking, and underground shopping, there can be an IMAX movie theatre underground, etc.

Also, I have friends who love tennis, there has to be a place for people to play tennis.

There is a lot to consider as Anaheim develops and grows.

And of course we need piazzas like in Italy, with statues and fountains and cobblestones, and wonderful outdoor landscaping.

We need to grow in awesome ways as we grow, there is a lot to consider.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platinum_Triangle,_Anaheim

We need 50,000 new housing units here in Anaheim to keep up with demand, and we need to include housing for Senior Citizens, and for disabled people, and for people with low income. One idea is for the units on the lower floors on the new towers to be cheaper, and the units on the upper floors to be more expensive, with the top floor being the most expensive, the Penthouses will be on the top floors and will be expensive.

I also want us to go with the best and most creative architects and designers and landscapers.

There is a lot of hard work to do in order to keep up with demand, and we need to do a cool job, we need to leave behind great things for future generations, as we try to best serve the present generation.

And this will be world class housing, and it will be nice and safe, we are not going to build a ghetto, we are going to build cool stuff.

Salute,

Tony V.

Chapman has joined action in support of Harvard and MIT’s suit challenging the ICE rule. We are actively supporting international students across the country so they can continue their studies without the threat of deportation.

-------------------------

We need for our Statue of Liberty to stand for what we are about, not a wall. And all men are created equal.

Anyone who can get accepted into our schools should be able to study here without fear of deportation.

Of note, the President of Colombia, President Iván Duque Márquez, attended Harvard. And Prince Albert of Monaco attended school here in the USA.

We need to keep our schools welcoming.

California Dreaming....

I found a boat that I am going to buy after I make my movie "Echo, A Rock and Roll Tragedy."

It is a 100 foot Benetti which was designed by Versace.

Link...

https://youtu.be/RAqsB659KLk

And I am going to build a stage on my boat for my friends who have bands, my friend Jon and his girlfriend Susan will have a luxury suite on my boat, and Jon can decide where he wants the stage, etc. And they will be able to record their music, and plus we can shoot video, etc.

And I am going to set it up so that we can eat good. I want to be able to barbecue filet mignon, and I want to be able to make fish tacos, etc, we need to be able to eat good.

And I want all young hot women to be my captain and crew, my whole crew is going to be young hot chicks.

We could park it here in California in a million places, or we can go down and cruise it down the Amazon River, we could go check out Colombia and stuff, or we could cruise it around the Mediterranean Sea, we could go to Cannes, Monaco, Capri, Greece, Cyprus, etc, we could go a lot of places.

And I could make my boat pay for itself by shooting video for PBS, or for some channel on television, we could cruise down the Amazon and shoot video of the experience, etc.

And plus I will have a vineyard and winery in Italy, a night club in Rome, a movie production company at Cinecitta, etc, which will all help me to make money. And I will have a recording studio for my friends.

And I will date Mahlagha Jaberi, she is a 30 year old model from Iran who lives in San Diego, California.

Here is her Instagram page...

https://www.instagram.com/MAHLAGHAJABERI/

Plus, I want to buy a helicopter to fly from the winery to the movie studio in Italy.

And I want to buy the house where I lived in Malibu.

http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/6315-Gayton-Pl_Malibu_CA_90265_M15737-07387

And I want to have at least one child. If it is a boy I want to name him Aldo Augustus Verley, and if it is a girl I want to name her Grace Nicole Verley.

And I want to publish my poetry book. I might also write some more books. And my future wife might want to write books too, so I can help her to publish her books. I could help my wife to produce her own television show, or whatever she wants, she can make her own films, etc. She could have her own brand of perfume, whatever.

There is a lot of cool stuff that can happen if I get my movie made and if it is a success.

Salute,

Tony V.
