"Hitting Trump in the pocketbook" walking tour
Date Saturday December 24
Time 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Location Details
American Youth Hostel

Event Type Teach-In
Organizer/AuthorDavid Giesen
The walk is nominally about San Francisco social movement history, but it's also a deep look into the chronic issues facing us today such as wage scales, housing rights, and racial, religious, and class divisions. Remarkably, the content includes constructive proposals for solutions, and a timely one of these addresses Trumpism.

Trump derives income from his reputation, his businesses, and from the land he owns. This walk introduces you to public policy measures going back 3,000 years (and with modern sizing) that would abolish his (and your) income from mere ownership of land.

Hit social wrong in the pocketbook and you're going to make a difference, get attention, make complacent thinking uncomfortable!

FREE, except for your time and current patterns of thought

§Dub Nation reads "Congenital depravity on Xmas morning?"

The tale of Nasty Cat begins on Taylor near Market in San Francisco on a middling chilly Xmas morning. Dub Nation, San Francisco's slow-motion political allegory lampoonist, reads from his latest manuscript way too early on a Saturday morning in order to introduce The Commons SF's 1,322nd edition of their acerbic, humorous, informative social movements history walking tour, which launches at 9 am. Plan to stay for that walk!

"Congenital Depravity on Xmas Morning?" follows Nasty Cat the tom-cat on his morning patrol of his scruffy Tenderloin domain. When Nasty Cat finds a perch in the sun's warmth he dreams a landlord's life before a very unusual surrogate of the Christ child disturbs his cruel fantasy.

For those in search on an antidote to liberal-progressive intellectual vacuity in the face of Trumpism, this reading may serve as an elixir.
