On October 3, 2017, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, all Democrats, voted 9 to 2 to uphold an appeal of the decision to approve the Apothecarium, a medical cannabis dispensary which had been approved for Noriega & 32nd Avenue, after massive opposition of the bourgeois property owners of the Sunset District, organized by the anti-gay Pacific Justice Institute. A vote so overwhelmingly against medical marijuana, and in favor of an anti-gay gang, can only have occurred with the approval of the San Francisco Democratic Party.

San Francisco led the state in counties voting for Prop 64 in November 2016 with 73% voting for legalizing marijuana. San Francisco voters support gay marriage with 75% of the vote. However, the leadership of the Democratic Party, such as President Obama, did not favor gay marriage until he ran for office a second time, and medical marijuana is not favored by some of the leadership of the Democratic Party, such as Senator Feinstein, who opposed Prop 64.

This is the same Democratic Party that nationally has been supporting anti-abortion candidates and is now 28% anti-abortion in its membership. The Democratic Party has a long history of betrayal as it is the graveyard of progressive causes, being the twin party of war and fascism with the Republican Party. Only Peace & Freedom Party and the Green Party staunchly support medical marijuana, gay liberation, abortion, and all other worthwhile causes. You can change your registration online now at

After you change your registration, you can read the chant below to learn the history of Democratic Party betrayal and then go outside the next 4 days as the Navy’s Blue Death illegally strafes our City for Columbus Genocide glorification they call Fleet Week, October 5-8, 2017, from Noon to 5 p.m., making a terrifying, deafening noise, and point to these terrorist murder machines with people around you and teach peace, proclaiming: THAT’S WHY WE ARE SO POOR; WE CAN’T HAVE GUNS AND BUTTER. You can tell the soldiers and military sailors walking around town: DON’T FIGHT THE BOSSES’ WAR; FIGHT THE BOSSES HERE AT HOME; ORGANIZE LABOR! The officers should be told to resign from the military now.

The history of the Democratic Party, just as much a capitalist, millionaires’ party as the Republican Party, goes as follows:

We remember nuclear bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Democrat Truman);
We remember the creation of the CIA in 1947 with $200 million from the Rockefellers and Mellons by 350 German Nazis under Nazi Army Major General Reinhard Gehlen (Truman);

We remember the destruction of a welfare system that actually helped people get out of poverty, replaced by the poverty-promoting Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996 (PRWORA) and we remember the prison, death penalty and racism promoting 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act (see and 1996 Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act ( (Bill and Hillary Clinton);

We remember the Helms-Burton Act of 1996 codified the US embargo against Cuba which previously had been by presidential proclamation, now was an Act of Congress, which only the US Congress could cancel, and the embargo, in effect since 1962 started by Democrat Kennedy), is the longest genocide in history (See Blockade Against Cuba: The Longest Genocide in History) (Bill and Hillary Clinton);

We remember Democrat Obama’s refusal to support socialized medicine guaranteeing free medical care to all who live or visit here upon demand from cradle to grave and instead, with both the House and Senate majority Democrat when first elected, promoted a tax give away to the insurance companies with high deductibles and co-pays for American citizens only and restrictions on abortion payments known as Obamacare or the “Affordable” Care Act also known as Republican Mitt Romney’s medical plan for Massachusetts when he was its governor, with an increase in Medicaid tossed in which Medicaid expansion could have passed separately, all of which covers only 10% of the population, with the lack of socialized medicine for all causing about 1,000 deaths per year (see and and;

We remember the failure to fulfill the promise to close Guantanamo Concentration Camp where the inmates are held indefinitely and receive no charges, trial or convictions and suffer torture, all illegal, and where 41 inmates remain from the 242 Democrat Obama inherited from his predecessor, Republican Bush who originally illegally imprisoned without charge and tortured 780 men, and we remember the same Democrat Obama who upgraded the illegal Guantanamo Concentration Camp with $40 million of our tax dollars (Democrat Obama) (See;

We remember the Democrat Party’s revival of anti-Russian hysteria in 2016, even though the US destroyed the Soviet Union in 1991 and Russia is now a capitalist country, to promote Democrat Hillary Clinton as president with no evidence being presented of wrongdoing by the Russians (but plenty of evidence that the Republicans again won the Electoral College vote with election fraud by tossing the black vote, as they did in 2000 and 2004 as that is the only way they can win the presidency since 1992), and promoting a possible attack on Russia by NATO-USA in the last days of Democrat Obama’s presidency (See,,;

We remember that on Friday, December 23, 2016 while people were busy preparing for a holiday weekend, Democrat Obama signed a $619 billion military appropriations bill for the 800 US military bases and 7 illegal wars Obama was promoting, which in and of itself is unconscionable, but it also contained a Ministry of Truth clause known as the Countering Disinformation and Propaganda Act, an anti-free speech and anti-free press law that was part of this 3,000 plus page war-mongering bill which Congress did not read, but did approve (See’

We remember that Democrat Obama’s 2016 Ministry of Truth clause followed his 2011 Indefinite Military Detention Law for American citizens without trial or charge as part of the December 31, 2011 military appropriations bill (see,, and for a comprehensive list of Obama’s horrors including this one, see and;
