Democrats Join Republicans to Give Trump $696 billion for War, More than Trump Requested
On Bastille Day, July 14, 2017, 117 Democrats and 227 Republicans in the House of Representatives joined to give Republican Pres. Trump $696 billion for the military, more than the $603 billion he asked for. HR 2810, on Roll Call 378, now goes to the Senate as the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018. Yet, only 114 Congresspeople have endorsed HR 676, Medicare for All. San Francisco’s Rep. Democrat Nancy Pelosi voted for the military budget but has failed to endorse HR ...

Bathrooms....in Santa Cruz??!!
Today's Sunday Sentinel featured Jessica York's story around Santa Cruz, the Town Without Crappers. A front-page above-the-fold story, no less. It can be found at http://www.santacruzsentinel.com/social-affairs/20170701/santa-cruz-seeks-public-bathroom-solutions-while-its-homeless-population-crosses-its-legs but since such stories disappear or become accessible only to those who pay for on-line privileges, I'm repeating it below along with my commentary....

Oakland City Funding for Eviction Defense Support Expiring on June 30, 2017
The situation is indeed dire. All funding from the City of Oakland for eviction defense work will end as of June 30, 2017, given the continuing ambiguity about CDBG funding that we’ve been told constrains the city’s ability to execute new contracts. In other words, the City of Oakland currently is not committed to fund eviction defense work once the 2016/2017 contracts expire....

Call SF Supes to House Homeless & Stop Bus Fare & Fine Increases
The 6/1/17 Street Sheet distributed by the homeless has issued the urgent call to house the homeless, both in 24 hour full service shelters where needed the most, such as the Bayview, and for permanent housing for the homeless. They also provide an excellent analysis of the devastating impact on the workingclass, especially African-Americans, of annual bus fare and bus fine increases, with another bus fare increase due July 1, 2017, and the fine for not paying will increase to $120 for a $2....
