Help bring my belongings back to me by Alain V Berrebi – GoFundMe

Today I turn 61 years old and woke up thinking that I had reached my goal of bringing my belongings back to me from Miami to Los Angeles. Unfortunately when I called the company that is storing them and will need to ship them they explained to me that shipping costs have gone up and therefore my original amount was not sufficient. If you can help this will help me get my life back on full track. You can read my story on the GoFundMe site.

Sanders confirms presidential run and damns America’s inequities

The one thing this article completely ignores is the fact that senator Sanders does Jewish. Being Jewish myself, having the first Jewish president would make me very very happy. hand I like Senator Sanders very much so his policies would also please me. Here’s the big caveat, he’s a self describe socialist democrat you acted that he’s jewish and it makes am on electric. Again let me stress I am jewish and I wish there were a Jewish President in my lifetime. But I think the roots of anti semitism are deep, and in an economy that is not about to collapse, I don’t think that’s the electorate  is not going to be as willing to take chances as they did when President Obama was elected in 2008. I wish senator Sanders the best of luck but I will continue to support Hillary Clinton for President.

Gov. Jerry Brown seeks fines of up to $10,000 a day for water wasters – LA Times

Although I applaud the governor for taking these needed steps, but a fundamental change in the way we use the land is what is necessary. agribusiness in the state of California brings in billions and billions of dollars to the state coffers. And therefore they have huge clouds. Converting our crops from those that were annuals such as tomatoes and strawberries and lettuces to those that grow in rose has made a significant impact on our water usage. It takes a gallon of water to grow a single almond. How much water it takes to make a gallon of almond milk. that’s where the conservation needs to start. its going to cost money and this place well but the alternative turns California into a desert.

The changes that you see in these NASA pictures are not only from this incredibly large lot of rain but also for the new crops we are growing

My story, and why I am asking for some help

image
Even small donations will help me reach my goal, 2, 3, 5 dollars would be great, thank you

A good and wise friend of mine said that I needed to explain a little bit more why I am in this predicament. On September 1st  2012 there was the possibility of a hurricane coming to Miami. I went and got water for myself and some of the older residents in the building. I put the water in my apartment and left the door unlocked, forgetting that they had sent home all security and maintenance so they could prepare their homes. Upon returning to my apartment at the Palm Bay Yacht Club and Marina after delivering the water to the elderly people in the building I was surprised to find someone in my apartment he or she immediately knocked me out. I never got a look at him or her. So from September 1st to September 3rd this person or persons electrocuted me on my left wrist and my upper right arm. The only reason I survived was that Florida Power and Light came on Monday to test our emergency generator. This has been scheduled and they shut off the power to the whole building which allowed me to escape. I crawled out into the hallway and the neighbor found me called 911 and I was rushed to Mount Sinai. I was diagnosed with fourth degree electrical burns to my left wrist and my upper right arm. This has been ruled an attempted murder, I was and still am very traumatized by this 68 hour ordeal. And I never pushed the authorities to find the person who did it. it seems that they were on a drug called bath salts. the doctor at the hospital told me they found bath salts in my apartment and I explained that I did not have any because my bathtub did not work. he’s an explain to me that bath salts wère a drug. I stayed in Mount Sinai for 6 weeks and then was transferred to Oceanside Extended Care at 9th and Pennsylvania on South Beach. I stayed there for 5 months. When I was discharged I went through grueling physical therapy in preparation for surgery on June six of two thousand and thirteen, unfortunately I lost my Medicaid coverage on June 1st and was forced to move to  Los Angeles from Miami, to get continuing care. I sold my prized bmw M3 convertible for less than a quarter of its rough value and as my friends could atest it was pristine. I moved to California because I could get coverage here and having lived here before I was familiar with the area. I am scheduled for extensive surgery on my left arm and wrist on May 27th. I am facing months of rehab and possibly more surgeries down the road.
So there it is the story that I don’t like telling because it brings up terrible memories. I am under the care of a therapist as I suffer from a very bad case of PTSD. I don’t have much in storage in Miami what apes the things that I want the most. it’s photos of my parents and family, my friends and those who are no longer with us. The things that make memories are in Miami. I only have a picture of my mom when she was 30 that I found from an identification card that she had when she came here from France and I have no pictures of my dad at all let alone any friends. so if you can help I wouldn’t truly appreciate it As I am trying to rebuild my life one brick at a time. thank you to all of those who are so generously contributed money and I thank you so much for taking the time to read my story.
Be well my friends,
Alain

Anti-Gay North Dakota Lawmaker Caught Sending Nude Pics to Another Man on Grindr

And I don’t think he can give the excuse that he thought that they were a coffee grinding company. Closeted gay men have been the gay community’s worst enemy and will always be because they need to show hatred so that they can stay in there dark and musky closets.

The Fix: Hillary Clinton has a new rainbow-flag avatar.

I have said this many times on my block. one of the proudest moments I’ve ever had as a gay man was seeing Hillary Clinton in the 2000 New York City parade. she has been LGBT rights from the beginning and making it sound as if she’s jumping on the bandwagon now because she’s running for president is just false.
