Why Am I a Victim of Domestic Abuse?!?

(Santa Mateo, Northern California just on the map above The Silicone Valley industries) February 29, 2020 – The Dailey Sun~Chronicles exclusive report –

There are three reasons and about a dozen contributing factors. Unfortunately the so-called “safety net” ignores the damage done to single, disabled, Caucasian folk.

Reason #2Education and Experience, or Lack of Any: Some people are pretty ignorant. In Dailey’s second book, Lessons Learned from Dogs, he states that dogs are smarter than 50% of human beings. In addition to holding a bachelor and masters degree from I.U., he earned two certificates for college credit from UCSC. His professional experiences span all industries except petrochemical or shipbuilding.

Third Reason: Cultural Complications – We really need translators to communicate with many of our next-door neighbors, land owners/landloords and landladies. If the issues get to the state Superior Court system, translators in over 20 languages can be arranged. In the olden days, people used to talk in public. Nowadays, most Americans are self-absorbed with their smart cell phones.

David A. Dailey recalls working for a defense contractor as an Environmental, Health, Safety engineer in Sunnyvale and at NASA Ames Research Center – Mountain View’s Moffett (Naval) Field – that everyone received annual briefings/workshops on respecting diversity. This was way back in 1987!

Lockheed’s customers reimbursed our company, plus an administrative expense fee, regularly. See, most of our customers were federal organizations (Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, CIA, FBI, Special Programs) that promote America’s constitutional values. Our customers received the best engineered, reliable products ever made in exchange for encouraging us (there were over 30,000 employees served by our HQ department) to be physically and mentally fit by taking continuing education along with doing our daily jobs.

In 1992 after the “Cold War” cooled down, David A. Dailey found employment in the healthcare and biotechnology industries until his formal retirement (left the California Department of Public Health in November 2008); since then, David has been a victim of violent crime and domestic abuse more than four times in San Mateo, East Palo Alto, and Redwood City.

On the positives . . . David has enjoyed his latest vocation as a non-fiction writer, politico, lobbyist, congressional or state senate candidate, humorist, stand-up comic, Roman Catholic advocate, advocate for ‘houseless’ people in the Midwest, Rocky Mountains, Hawai’i, and California, job coach, risk management consultant, proponent of an ‘Anti-Stigma Campaign for Americans Receiving Mental Health Care’, essayist, newspaper contributor, restaurant and hotel critic, secret recipes author with

creator of Lessons Learned from Dogs,

and A Book of Angels)

and a handful of funny screenplays and pilot musical sit-coms like “Dr. Wu”, “Fast Forward to the Past,” “Two Flew into the Seagulls’ Nest,” and “Country Corner”) from working about 30 years as an Environmental Protection, Occupational Safety, Industrial Hygiene, Hazardous Waste Management, Emergency Response and Contingency Planning, Risk Management and Safety Director, and other tasks as assigned (most notably, the monthly six-page EHS bulletins, monthly safety-message campaign manufacturing calendars, the soon-to-be-infamous “Safety Watch” employee involvement and award program, and personal protective equipment (PPE) provision and annual certification programs).

Now back to domestic abuse . . .

The scales of justice, respect, and consideration are now so un-balanced that single white men have few community resources. If one has children under 18, was an immigrant, was a green card-carrying worker in Silicon Valley, or had a non-white skin color, one would have more resources to protect himself. For instance, CORA within the County of San Mateo does NOT serve people in crisis unless ther are children or if the two parties are romantically engaged AND the County office of Adult Protective Services pays little attention to abuse received by single men.

In this socioeconomic environment, renters in shared housing CANNOT pick or offer approval of roommates. Landlords are able to ignore instances unless the Courts intervene. Unless local rent control laws prohibit it, landlords can charge what they wish and choose not to respond to complaints or comply even with fire safety standards.

Contributing Factor A: Slavery. Yep, seems like everyone except a “Trumpster” lives from paycheck to paycheck, Social Security benefit check to the next month’s funds, hand-out to hand-out, etc. etc. etc. Yes, it is a different form of human trafficking.

An interesting study took place about the hiring practices of big Silicon Valley companies, like Facebook. One finding was that people who graduated from local high schools and community colleges are not hired, in favor of importing green-carded workers from India, Red China, Russia, and some European and South and Central American citizens.

“Hypocracy” Directly from the “Reigning” Leader of the Free World

Rose Garden at the White House

Friday, October 25, 2019

With two month until Christmas, more than 50% of those polled are fed up with lies, misuse of the English language, gaffs in world and domestic affairs  . . . strategically, can we trust one to light this season’s Christmas tree or pardon a turkey or two before Thanksgiving.

The real “houx” is how his-nibs keeps spinning the news despite all the facts disproving most every thing that is tweeted and that which comes out of his mouth.

Our elected leaders rather should not act childlike and quit telling fibs.

A to Z

Fortunately, there is some joy and truth in the District of Columbia. The National League Pennant Winners are leading the annual World Series 2 games to nil.

Friday and Saturday nights, the Washington Nationals are hosting Game 3 and 4 of the World Series. President Trump was NOT invited to attend nor throw out a first pitch. Meanwhile, his-nibs flies to South Carolina for another pep rally.

All 50% of Americans or more want for Christmas is that Trump and Pence are impeached. Perhaps they will resign before a trial in the US Senate… we can only hope that a more honest politicialn will pardon the turkey in 2019.

Three Professional Sports Come to Dramatic Seasonal Closes on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday

Belmont  Park, New York

June 9, 2018

 

On Thursday, the National Hockey League season ended when the Washington Capitals won the Stanley Cup 4 games to 1 over the Las Vegas Golden Knights.

On Friday, the National Basketball Association season ended when the Golden State Warriors was their third championship in four years. For this, they should receive honorable mention in Cleveland’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

On Saturday, the magnificent horse Justify should defeat nine others to claim the Triple Crown.

Justify has captured the Triple Crown after winning the 150th Belmont Stakes on Saturday in New York.

Justify won the Belmont starting from the rail. The last Triple Crown from that spot at the Belmont was Secretariat, 45 years ago to the day Saturday.

Justify, which went off as the 4-5 favorite, is the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown but just the second to capture it undefeated, joining Seattle Slew (1977). Justify beat nine other horses to win — more competition than any other Triple Crown winner has beaten in the Belmont. Justify defeated 35 horses across the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.

Bob Baffert, Justify’s trainer, joins “Sunny Jim” Fitzsimmons as the only trainers to win the Triple Crown twice. Fitzsimmons won in 1930 with Gallant Fox and in 1935 with Omaha. Baffert won in 2015 with American Pharoah.

It was Baffert’s fifth attempt to win the Triple Crown — three more than any other trainer. It was jockey Mike Smith’s first Triple Crown. At 52, he is the oldest jockey to win the Triple Crown.

Gronkowski finished second in the 1 1/2 mile race, and Hofburg finished third before a crowd of 90,000.

What next?!?
