2017 – New Year, New Businesses

I am trying to figure out my post baby plan, but right now that seems to include a revamping of our first business, Karnage Creations LLC. I am a licensed contractor, and the work we like to do is restoring historic windows. We prefer to do larger jobs, more along the lines of being subcontracted in a home renovation project than handman odd jobs. We also do a variety of carpentry, painting, etc. Find out more about Karnage Creations LLC here: Richmond Window Repair

The other business David and I are trying to get off the ground is the Heathen Homestead. This is our farming, herbal medicine, crafting, furniture making enterprise. Our website and etsy are live, and our journey is just beginning. Keep tabs on that project here: The Heathen Homestead

The Resistance

 

There has been a lot going on in Richmond for the past months. 2014 is turning out to be a pivotal year for this City. A year where everything is on the line. Right now, on the precipice of multiple changes, I’m taking a look into my crystal ball to see what the future may hold. Like any prediction, this is no static vision. Things don’t have to turn out like what I’m seeing.

 

What happens if a development in Shockoe Bottom is created using 80 million of public funds to build a ball park in a historic site? What happens if Monroe Park is privatized and attempts are made to kick Food Not Bombs and the homeless out? What happens if our schools and children continue to suffer because Vulture Richmond gets tax breaks they don’t deserve?

 

Well, what I’m seeing is:

 

The Resistance is what will happen.

 

The Resistance won’t be a formal organization, but a banner taken up by dozens, hundreds, thousands, who are so sick of living in a place where the few rule the many, where money speaks louder than our voices, and where there is more oppression daily.

 

The Resistance won’t stick to one set of tactics, but will embrace a true diversity of tactics to liberate Richmond from the oppressive bad decisions brought about by Mayor Jones, City Council, Vulture Richmond, and the Monroe Park Advisory Council – among others.

 

I’m seeing members of the Resistance outside of the houses of members of City Council, Monroe Park Advisory Council, Vulture Richmond, Looting RVA, local Developers and more, holding up boom boxes John Cusack style, blasting “No where to run to baby, no where to hide” by Martha and the Vandellas . Because, as we all know from campaigns like Stop Huntington Animal Cruelty – the enemies have faces, names, and addresses. Any good resistance will be sure to gather this intel, and use it appropriately, to bring to the protests to the people responsible for the decisions privatizing our City.

Planting Honesty Article

Here is an article I wrote which was recently published by style weekly magazine.

Suggestion for Councilwoman Mosby

http://m.nbc12.com/autojuice?targetUrl=http%3a%2f%2fwww.nbc12.com%2fstory%2f23201579%2frichmond-councilwoman-creates-suggestion-box-for-crime-fighting-ideasis my response to Councilwoman Mosby as interviewed by NBC 12 here:

Hello,

More police and more jail beds will never solve crime in Richmond. We need jobs, we need dignity, and we need education. Community will solve crime, not laws or encouraging people to call 911 when they see something suspicious. People of color, especially young men of color are already disproportionately targeted by the RPD who engage in unethical stop and frisk tactics. We already spend too much on police. We should be trying alternatives like mediation, counselling, mental healthcare access, etc. And calling on and supporting existing organizations like the Richmond Peace Education Center and ROSMU to help in developing alternatives to 911 and guides for building strong communities.

I would love to meet to discuss further.

Thanks

Mo Karnage
