Look Ma! I'm in the paper!

Quiet Halloween in the Castro: SFPD was PREPARED

This is an EVENT that happens twice a year: Halloween and NYE in SF.
I have been going 15 years. I used to go Most every Halloween and New Years Eve.
Heck I was even on the news last Halloween on Channel 2 for a minute at 10:15 pm. - Raw Footage - bottom of right column thumbnail pics - what actually ran - bottom of right column thumbnail pics
Takes time to load, please wait, after clicking on the LAST littl pic that says: "Castro Halloween" (after you get past the ad)
If it does not run the first time, click on the little thumbnail pic again...
and a photo of me from Halloween 2006 ran in the NYT 10/29/07
My TV segment ran only once. Then 9 people got shot. That was all the news from then on.
I wrote the next day about how important such events are for free speech and free expression;
you know, that little FIRST AMMENDMENT thing.

Heck, years ago at this same event I was on a network news TV station CALLING OUT:
Wearing a shirt with 12 inch letters: CIA, a hat that said COCAINE IMPORT AGENCY,
and holding a Mirror with piles of sugar powder that looked like blow,
passing out deception dollars with 25 websites offering proof that 911 was an inside job.
So you see: I want to preserve CASTRO HALLOWEEN and NYE parties for FREE SPEECH!

I hope to go again.

"War Criminal" Ex-MI6 Head Dearlove Confronted At Event

Author of the infamous Downing Street Memo and ex-MI6 head Sir Richard Dearlove was confronted and branded a "war criminal" by audience members who attended his talk at the London School of Economics last night, before being hounded out of the building - but subsequent media coverage of the event completely failed to mention the controversy.

Fri Nov 2 10am-Noon SF Protest against 2nd war in Iraq - say No to Turkey invasion
Please join Kurds, Iraqis and other Americans this Friday, November 2nd at 10:00AM at the following location:
San Francisco City Hall steps 1 Dr. Carlton B. Goodlett Place kurdishreliefaid [at]
Demonstration Against a Second Iraq War. Say NO to a Turkish invasion of Iraqi Kurdistan - the only peaceful part of Iraq.
The current threat of invasion by Turkey should be a great concern to everyone. A Turkish invasion would cause Iraqi Kurdistan, the only safe region in all of Iraq, to spiral out of control. Iraqi Kurdistan has become the home to thousands of refugees from Iran and Turkey and many displaced peoples from southern Iraq who have escaped the madness of the Iraqi war, in addition to the local Kurdish, Assyrian and Christian Iraqi residents of the region. Iraqi Kurdistan also serves as a region for R&R for American troops.
Any risk to this region would be catastrophic to the entire region. The conflict at hand between Turkey and Kurdish rebels is one that can be solved PEACEFULLY and through DIALOGUE. Officials all over Iraq have repeatedly offered political dialogue as an alternative to war. Support this alternative and convince the world that it is the ONLY option for a solution. A new war in Iraq will NOT solve anything.
A Peaceful Solution is the ONLY Solution.
Join Kurds, Iraqis and other Americans in this peaceful demonstration in San Francisco at City Hall. Come support peace and say No to war!

Rent Control Repeal Alert!
We need your help now to save rent control from being repealed in California!
Wealthy landlords are placing a measure on the ballot to repeal all rent control in California. We understand they already have enough signatures to get it on the June ballot. They are trying to hide the rent control repeal as part of an eminent domain reform measure, knowing that homeowners want reform of eminent domain laws (following a US Supreme Court decision allowing the taking of property through eminent domain and then transferring the property to a private developer). The measure unambiguously repeals and prohibits any form of rent control. The measure would also repeal inclusionary affordable housing laws.
A key part of the strategy to defeat this dangerous measure is to have a competing eminent domain reform measure on the same ballot. Tenant and housing groups have been collecting signatures on a competing measure, which simply prohibits using eminent domain for residential housing and then transferring ownership to developers. The competing measure also contains language invalidating the entire rent control repeal measure (if this competing measure gets more votes). Polling indicates that if this competing measure is on the ballot then the rent control repeal measure loses flat out. We’re close to getting the competing measure on the ballot but need help in the 3 remaining weeks we have (November 20 is the deadline).
Please help us in the next few weeks to get this measure—which stops rent control repeal—on the ballot. We will be holding signature gathering mobilizations, where you can get petitions and then go get signatures, the next 3 Saturdays.
Saturday, Nov 3, 11 AM to 1 PM at SF Tenants Union, 558 Capp St (at 21st)
Saturday, Nov 3, 11 AM to 1 PM at SF Tenants Union, 558 Capp St (at 21st)
Saturday, Nov 3, 11 AM to 1 PM at SF Tenants Union, 558 Capp St (at 21st)
Please try to come by and get some petitions and then get your family and friends and co-workers to sign or take them to a location we can assign you and get people to sign. This is very important–all our homes are at risk.
Also, please join tenants, seniors, labor, elected officials, and environmentalists (it also repeals some environmental protect regulations) at a rally where San Francisco will show unified opposition to this measure:
Rally To Save Rent Control
Wednesday, November 14, 12 Noon
State Building (Van Ness & McAllister)
Attached is a flyer explaining further about these 2 measures and how you can fight them. Please forward this e mail widely!! SF Tenants Union

Experience the power of sacred sexuality in this hands-on, clothes-off workshop.
This 2.5 hour workshop will focus on the female as receiver. Women must attend with a partner. This workshop welcomes givers of any sex.
We will practice a series of conscious breathwork techniques and Taoist Erotic Massage, which can lead to extended, full-body orgasm and an altered mind-state conducive to spiritual insights.
Honestly, if you're looking to get off, this isn't for you. This is a spiritual, erotic practice that stimulates and spreads erotic energy throughout the body. It is very hot, but it isn't sex as you normally think of it.
After the introduction and demonstration, we will practice the breathwork, and you will be guided through a series of different genital massage strokes. Participants will then have an opportunity to give or receive a 40 minute massage with integrated breathwork and coaching.
There is no sexual interaction between the giver and receiver except for the massage itself, and all boundaries will be respected.

Please foster Kittens for you local SPCA.
Help raise kittens until they are 8 weeks old or 2 lbs and can be put up for adoption.
It is important that they have humans for socialization and play! (lucky you)
this is the sweetest and most fun way to bring extra love into your life,
and into the kittens' lives. This program is FREE:
You attend their kitten foster program so you know how...
And then when they have a litter of kittens for you,
they send you home with kittens and all the cat food you need.
