Going to California to Get Out of Iraq

Going to California to Get Out of Iraq

Last night Cassandra and I went out to the Manahttan Beach Marriott to attend a meeting with the Progressive Caucus of the California Democratic Party. One of the panelists, David Swanson, writes about it here.

There you will read the Progressive Caucus' Policy to Withdraw US Forces from Iraq and Start Reconstruction (at the end of the column.)

The Progressive Caucus of the CDP website is here.

Other panelist include Ann Wright, Scott Ritter, Harlan Hobgood, Dr. Michael Schwartz, Dr. Stephen Zunes and Moderator Steve Young.

Currently listening to the Young Turks filibuster broadcast. Cassandra is about to call in....

...and she just did- letting the hosts know about the WEEKLY protest outside of Sen. Feinstein's LA office at the corner of Sepulveda and Santa Monica. It's every Friday from 3pm until dark.

Talent... sheer talent

Jesse Dyen has updated his website. Go enjoy his musical talents- like his arrangement of the First Amendment (lyr. T. Jefferson et. al.). I also recommend Sons and Daughters, the Camp Casey theme song, Freedom Isn't Free Tonight, and the wonderful Love One Another, his song for George Harrison.

Jesse is a nice person. He is also an excellent musician. And a SCOFFLAW for peace, as evidenced here:

Sunday, January 15, 2006 for Blogger, and that guy with the cow.

I've been using Firefox since my IE went looopy, just installed the blog editor into it- I just hit F8 and I'm blogging... sharing with you miy insights and observatrions.

Like this:

The Carls Jr. milkshake commercial with the scruffy guy molesting the cow... it has to stop.

It's on PBS now.

It's too much. I bet that song was fun once.

TV is killing us all slowly.

How excellent was Christmas 2005?

Pretty friggin' excellent, thank you Baby J!

Let's see... first of all, I did a damn fine job of avoiding holiday depression.

Got some cool gifts, many of them Star Wars related, like the Puzz 3-D Star Destroyer, Volume 2 of the Clone Wars, my boss gave me her crew patches (9 of them!) from when she worked on Episode I and her crew shirt (unopened) from Episode II... lots of stuff from a galaxy far, far away...

Spent one whole day on the puzzle, went to Arlington West on Christmas Day, went to the Ecstasy exhibit at the MOCA, had dinner with visiting friends at Phillipe's , protested outside of Dianne Feinsten's LA office. (You can too, every Friday afternoon! 11111 Santa Monica Boulevard, Suite 915 LA, CA 90025 (310) 914-7300)

I made two batches of Wookiee cookies, too.

Call it whatever you want- Christmas, Saturnalia, Solstice. These end-of-year activities are a great way to check in and appreciate the year that's passed and look forward to the year to come.

As long as you don't get caught up in the horrible vicious cycle of expectations, anticipation and disappointment.

That Charlie Brown jazzy Christmas music will break your heart, if you let it.

Happy 2006! Here's to IMPEACHMENT!
