Sorry I haven't been posting.

Had me a little adventure.

Just like out of the John Carpenter movie Prince of Darkness.
We never had homeless people here.

When they started coming, they weren't violent.

I've had a homeless woman arrested five times on my property. She kicks the back door and threatens to kill me.

The cops told me last time that I'm on my own.
Gavin Newsom opposes incarceration for ANY crime, so the cops are no longer arresting the violent homeless.

They have free rein in our city.

This is where the homeless woman sleeps on my property.
Two days ago, she brought a man with her.

They settled in even before the sun went down.

I didn't know she had a man until I went our the back door and he instantly attacked me.

Knocked me down, so I hit my head on the cement.
I defended myself.

But here's the aftermath.

I had to get tetanus shots.
No idea whose blood this is, but now I have to be screened for HIV.
This is inside the house, so it looks dark.

He had a knife, but he didn't get a chance to use it.
I think these are from his fingernails.
I went down on the cement face first, but I was able to land on my knees.
The other knee.

You can't end up prone. That's when they pounce on you.
And finally.
Didn't call the cops.

He won't be incarcerated.

Besides, he's in no condition to attack anyone else ever again.

Neither is she. In the struggle, they fell and hurt themselves.
I've never seen a crack pipe before.

There was another one, but in the fight it somehow got wedged up the woman's nose and then someone stamped on it.

Must've been the boyfriend.
Anyway, she had broken glass up her nose and in her mouth.


And BOY, and am I sore. It's funny how you do so much by instinct. I always had really fast reflexes.

I always tell people that I can out-crazy anyone.

It's good to know that I can.
So all is well.

Fact often mimics fiction.

I wrote something just for myself over 20 years ago. We used to have a HUGE graffiti problem.

So I wrong that someone needed to invent a clear coating to put on all surfaces.
This coating would chemically react to spray paint and send out a six-foot jet of flame.

You could judge the effectiveness of your municipal graffiti-abatement program by driving around and counting the number of young men with melted faces.
Nobody ever thinks to protect their faces.

Isn't that bizarre?

You take the fight right out of people by utterly destroying their faces.

And I mean, PERMANENTLY take the fight our of them.
So I'll be back in a couple of days.

Every muscle, tendon, and joint in my body is sore.

But now I'm pretty sure I won't need to build a fence, as the cops told me to do.

You know know what my state has done?
The state has turned the cops into homeless people.

My taxes support both, and both are parasites.

Well, I TOLD YOU that it's the law of jungle now.

The state can't bitch if we fight like animals to defend ourselves.


The fight ended on the front porch.

It went from the back, down the driveway, and onto the porch. I haven't checked out the battlefield until just now. Too sore to walk.

This is the homeless woman's blanket. Those are wrought-iron chairs. They each weigh 50 pounds.

The mouth of the glass crack pipe that somehow got jammed up the woman's nose.

That was a hell of a face stomp.
This is amazing.

I had no idea that this would happen to a concrete block.

The block was poured in 1913, so it's super-hard. Look at the aggregate.

Fine aggregate = even harder.
The underside of the concrete chip.
And the thickness.

This chip SHEARED OFF from the impact.

I think bullets can do that. And so can rage, apparently!

You see why I told you that this guy's fighting days are over?
