Hospitals & Asylums 








December 2012


By Anthony J. Sanders


Happy New Year!!! Expenditures exceeded revenues in December.  I wasn’t’ inspired to buy any presents, the bonfires on the Solstice and Christmas were alright alone, you just can’t get into any Christmas parties without any presents, but as the pastor said at the community feast “you can’t escape Christmas”.  I’m going Salsa dancing on New Year’s Eve to fulfill last year’s resolution to have the oral health to kiss a girl at midnight.  Here I am three extractions, dietary allowance for animal products and probiotics in the cabinet, later sampling every dessert.  Thanks for the free dental care.  New Year’s Eve is apparently the only time you are allowed to kiss girls in the United States without having to serve any time for rape.  We’ll see if Alonzo Johnson gets out of Ohio prison as scheduled this 2013 or if his stay is indefinitely extended like the other Alonzo Johnson - former ABA President Gray’s staked his entire career as black(?) U.S. Attorney General for Obama, thereon.  To clean House, it is not enough to replace the nonviolent Republican (the violent party) John Boehner as Speaker of the House but we must succeed our poisoner (the debt collector) Nancy Pelosi, the (minority) leader of the least popular House in history, 18%, the same as Occupy.  Their abuse of power is synonymous with 3-4 percent annual population decline in San Francisco and Cincinnati.  The role of Speaker of the House seems to exploit their arbitrarily drawn and authority less Congressional Districts beyond its people’s capacity to tolerate such abuse of power.  Washington D.C. has the highest rate of incarceration in the world 1,500 per 100,000 and the highest HIV infection rate in the USA at 5 percent; it is hazardous to your health to expose your society and community to the capitol, thus the freshman political science principle- Not in My Back Yard (NIMBY).  Reality is stolen when you turn to work for the very, very insolvent government, better owned by HA.  Come make the HA pilgrimage to Freedman’s Hospital & Asylum museum, Arlington National Cemetery, Gallaudet University, Armed Forces Retirement Home and St. Elizabeth’s Hospital, send me pictures and stay to occupy a D.C. prison to house us for your HA party Congressional victory.  Camping and loving it at 19°F.                 


Sandy Relief HA-15-12-12


Hurricane Sandy was a hurricane that devastated portions of the Caribbean and the Mid-Atlantic and Northeastern United States during late October 2012, with lesser impacts in Southeastern and Midwestern states and Eastern Canada. The storm became the largest Atlantic hurricane on record (as measured by diameter, with winds spanning 1,100 miles (1,800 km)). Preliminary estimates of losses due to damage and business interruption are estimated at $65.6 billion (2012 USD), which would make it the second-costliest Atlantic hurricane, behind only Hurricane Katrina. At least 253 people were killed along the path of the storm in seven countries.  In the United States, Hurricane Sandy affected 24 states, including the entire eastern seaboard from Florida to Maine and west across the Appalachian Mountains to Michigan and Wisconsin, with particularly severe damage in New Jersey and New York. Its storm surge hit New York City on October 29, flooding streets, tunnels and subway lines and cutting power in and around the city. Damage in the US is estimated at over $63 billion (2012 USD). One factor contributing to the storm's strength was additional energy from abnormally warm water off the North American East Coast, where global warming was identified as contributing 0.6°C of the 3°C above normal sea surface temperatures.  The recent record decline in Arctic sea ice could be responsible.  In conclusion, to apologize for the miserly delinquency of federal payments for disaster relief for Hurricane Sandy, a $75 billion settlement is provided, above and beyond the $63 billion requested, in November, including $1 billion for affected Caribbean nations and another $1 billion for Haiti, to sustain this level of support for the poorest nation in the Americas, and make up for the continuing losses to vandalism and looting incited by the bipartisan “fiscal cliff” hallucination deluding the national priority of Sandy relief.  The FY2012 HA budget finances $75 billion for the cooperative administration of the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) and US Agency for International Development (USAID) by transferring $43.4 billion from the Transportation Department (TD) and $46.4 billion from the Education Department (ED) for a total of $89 billion from whence $74 billion shall be credited to FEMA and $2 billion to USAID for Hurricane Sandy relief and $14 billion shall be returned to reduce Obama's FY 2012 deficit from $1,327 billion to $1,313 billion and increase the HA deficit from $412 billion to $473 billion.  It is important that the Transportation and Education Departments are relieved of these FY 2012 budget, so that their budgets are stabilized at 3 percent annual growth from FY 2008.  It is furthermore reiterated in un-hacked and clear terms that – (1) FEMA expenditures should be accounted for annually in the OMB Office of the President Column and (2) FEMA and USAID should coordinate international disaster relief from a shared small office in St. Elizabeth’s Hospital reminded to care for the true name of U.S. Customs (aka Homeland Security). 


Winter Solstice Dissolution of Hospitals & Asylums (HA) Political Party Relating to the Mayan Long Count HA-21-12-12


Done 24 November 2012. Flood proof logging road runoff party on state death row subsequently cancelled on account of vandalism and looting.  Freshman principle of political science - Not in My Back Yard (NIMBY).  The end of the…Mayan Great Calendar occurs on the winter solstice on December 21, 2012.  According to the correlation between the 5,125 year Long Count and Western calendars accepted by the great majority of Maya researchers (known as the Goodman-Martinez-Thompson, or GMT, correlation), this Mayan creation date 4 Ahaw, 8 Kumk’u is equivalent to August 11 (my birthday), 3114 BCE in the proleptic Gregorian calendar we use today. Inspired by the shadow of the serpent descending the Temple of the Sun and sun descending along the edge of the stone box on the roof of el Caracol at the ruins of Chichen Itza during equinox 1994 I have been publishing the Hospitals & Asylums (HA) newsletter yearly, equinox and solstice (yes), without interruption since 2000, online, with another monthly newsletter, since December 2004.  Since three personal acquaintances ran for local political office, without any political party affiliation, and my namesake, Senator Bernie Sanders, is the only independent in Congress, inspired but unsatisfied with the Tea Party and Occupy I am toying with the idea of Hospitals & Asylums Political Party 2013 (HAPPY).  It is an auspicious time for HA.  The Perseid meteors of August 2012, with a peak of around 120-130 meteors per hour, edged out the Leonids of November, with 110-120 meteors per hour, and is the largest meteor shower since 600-700 Geminids fell per hour December 2011. Because the lesson we have to teach the major political parties is dissolution and we want to be nonviolent and healthy, at all times, so the arts might flourish, and social networking remains out of reach (the athletic-scholar), our form of reunion shall be dissolution, for six months of formal study of the Party line (depending on your State), until you may be registered as a HA party candidate with your election board. For the occasion, I have constructed a TARP winter shelter to host a winter solstice party with which to ask the public authority for permission to camp, pay $47 billion for the entire Housing and Urban Development (HUD) budget FY 2013 and retroactively return around $300 billion in repaid TARP loans to the General Fund to sustain the Federal Budget Balanced to Prevent Debt from Exceeding 100% of GDP FY 2012, do justice and serve as temporary party headquarters until the FDA adopts the Center for Alcohol, Tobacco and Marijuana (ATM).
