Open Letter To North Korean President Kim Jong Un From Washington, DC's Homeless

President Kim Jong Un:

My name is Eric Jonathan Sheptock. I've advocated for Washington, DC's homeless community since mid-June 2006. In short, that means that I am one of a number of people who've approached government with the concerns of the homeless community and with ideas for decreasing homelessness. I personally have dealt primarily with the local government (DC Government), as opposed to the federal government (Washington). I've watched the homeless population go through a glitch pattern that DC Government refuses to have any meaningful conversation about, as it swung through a series of ups and downs -- reaching it's low of 5,757 people in 2007 after a high of 8,977 in 2005. We had 8,350 homeless people in 2016 and 7,473 in 2017, which was very close to our 2001 and 2002 numbers of 8,325 and 7,468 respectively. Long story short, we have a local government in the nation's capital who've said in 2004 that they wanted to end homelessness in 10 years…

Stop *itchin'; Start a REVOLUTION in 2018!!!!!

The logic that caused government to federalize social programs in the 1930's has been turned on its head in late-2017. During the great depression the federal government was willing to run up the deficit in order to save the working class (including lower-income people, as opposed to just the middle class). Then came fiscal responsibility and cuts to social programs in the 1980's. Now Trump and the 115th Congress have passed a tax plan that runs the deficit up in order to greatly decrease corporate taxes and taxes on the wealthy. The stated goals and purpose of the federal government have completely flipped since my adoptive mother -- Joanne Elizabeth Sheptock (80) -- was born in 1937. *****************************************
As my last post indicated, I see a series of 15-year patterns in terms of what government has done over the past 30 years. I also see the recently-passed tax plan bidding terribly for the working poor of America who will soon have the rug pulled out from …

Repugnant-can Tax Plan: A Plan for Revolution (As We Go Through 15-year Cycles)

A nation that continues year after year to spend more money on military defense than on programs of social uplift is approaching spiritual doom.-- Martin Luther King, Jr.Ecclesiastes 9:11King James Version (KJV)11 I returned, and saw under the sun, that the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favour to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. Ecclesiastes 9:14-18King James Version (KJV)14 There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: 15 Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. 16 Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard. 17 The words of wise men are heard in quiet more than the cry of [tRump] that ruleth among fools…
