WJCL 22 "Hilton Head man cited, after charging people rent to live out of car, boat, RV's, and sheds on his property." I don't have the skills to upload this video, but if somebody else could do it, I'd appreciate it. My landlord, and also my friend, had grand visions of building affordable miniature homes. I met him 3 years ago, shortly after hurricane Matthew decimated this island. I helped him clean up the property, and build the paved patio, in the video. What they call sheds, are well equipped miniature homes. Only 2 of the camper trailers belonged to my landlord. The other boats and RV's belonged to renters, and 1 boat belongs to me. All were maintained, or recently acquired, and awaiting restoration. No one was living in the race car trailer, and everyone enjoyed a higher level of privacy, and creative freedom. You'd clearly be hard-pressed to find anything affordable, anywhere else. There is no shortage of people, helping each other out. We have a car lift, and no shortage of skills. My landlord is haphazard, and gullible about certain things, but his heart has always been in the right spot. "You Tube-Tad Segars flip." He is a little reckless, but a very colorful human being. Now we have this mind-mumbling, self-righteous, oppression trying to make a mountain, out of a mole-hill. Gentrification is a national problem, and of course the high and mighty, of Hilton Head, are no exception to this crisis. Sensationalism, media rhetoric, defamation of character, and slander, is practiced on a grand scale. Suddenly I'm a disturbed vagrant, living in squalor. However I'm relieved to know, I'm a middle-class homeless person. "I have a full time job!" I have other things too, like talent and ambition. I don't have time to look down my nose at other people, and I can't help people, that can't attempt to help themselves. "Problem?" A few people want more then they deserve, and a lotta people suffer because of it. "Solution?" I'm working on it!!!

You can apply any terms to any situation. I see your point. Looked like a nice little community. People are legislated and zoned into homelessness.
You can apply any terms to any situation to rationalize bias or perspective.

"A Magical Sound made by the Earth-Singing Ice." Still stuck in the banality of life. Still walking on the thin soles of my shoes. I turn the muted TV screen on, and internet surf for much needed parts, for my incomplete projects. I have everything designed, and redesigned. I'm just waiting for the right time to buy. Spontaneity is usually trumped by my bank account, but not always. So nothing exciting here, just life, being life. Suddenly I'm intrigued by this beautiful Angel on the screen, with her ear against the ice. I unmute the sound, and catch the end of the story. It was enough info to spark a search on YouTube. I wasn't even close to having a Columbus or Columbo discovery. Apparently she has 1.11 million subscribers, and trust me, she earned, and will keep everyone of them. This Angel has eyes that wander, and sparkle with joy, and her sadness, makes you feel completely defeated. What a beautiful mind, what a beautiful person.................Jonna Jinton.

WSAV-3 People illegally living in boats, cars, on Hilton Head property. Local paper, Island Packet picked up the story, complete with drone overview. Now 7 code violations, has turned into 30. Press is having a field day, and I'm their pathetic poster child. Once again I get 15 minutes of unwanted fame! Ironically, close to 25 years ago was my last 15 minutes of fame. However the story, was no where near as sensational or embellished, as this current story. From the Volvo think tank!!! This is the "Swept Under the Rug Story." February 16th 1995, Heavy traffic riding my bicycle to Post Office, car beside me stops to make a right turn without a blinker. I'm already committed to crossing the side street. UPS truck speeds up and takes aim at a small opening in traffic. I become a speed bump, when he blows through a Stop sign. Spent a day being dead. Then woke up in ICU without a clue. Went to work the same day, obvious hospital bill to pay, post concussion hang over, bruised ribs, and other injuries, I wasn't aware of. Waitress I worked with, saw the whole chain of events, yet the UPS driver was the primary source of "Information Recieved." February 17th, 1995 Island Packet, second page, left column. "Island man fatally injured, when he strayed into the path of a UPS truck." UPS driver had 7 violations, 2 tickets on the same road, I got thunked! He also read-ended an automobile on his motorcycle. Hilton Head Hospital requested a percentage of the impending settlement. I refused, so they said my injuries were, "Pre-existing." Two operations on my back, interns didn't get it right the first time. Later met Mr. UPS driver for the first time, during a bong session. Full uniform, big brown truck parked in the driveway, early afternoon. He looks at me and says, "Don't I know you from somewhere?" I ask him his name, he tells me. I then say, "Your the Fuckin Motherfucker that Plowed Me!! First words out of his mouth? "You Really Fucked my Life Up." Well now he's missing his left leg. " Amputated! " No! I didn't grab the Machete hanging on the wall. He did it all by himself. Another motorcycle accident. "Karma" You know the rest.

A 2005 investigation by the publication Legal Times reported about questionable spending at ACLJ, quoting former employees describing millions in charity funds being spent to support the Sekulows' lavish lifestyle, which included multiple homes, golf junkets, chauffeur-driven cars and a private jet used to ferry then-Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. The Guardian and The Washington Post reported additional details in 2017, shortly after Sekulow was named as Trump's lawyer.

Media upset about "hidden" Covid-19 cases "suddenly" appearing in the Confirmed cases count.

Was it:
  • Media was too stupid to:
    • actually look at the CNHC Daily Update each day, or
    • add two of the numbers released each day, Confirmed (by test) and Suspected (diagnosed mild),
    so they're caught off guard and confused. Or,
  • Reporting that an administrative move of 13,332 of ~30K Suspected diagnosed cases, ones that had pneumonia CT features, to be counted as Confirmed to allow them to receive treatment to prevent worsening - and at government expense, just wouldn't sell enough papers/clicks.
Graph shows Suspected count going down as they gather cases for the transfer into the Confirmed count. Transfer of the 13,332 cases occurred on Feb 12.

Gathering and transfer of 13,332 Pt.s from Suspected to Confirmed to qualify for preventative treatment, and at government expense.
