For the third year in a row, San Francisco had a very large women’s march on 1/19/19, a weekend when we celebrate 46 years since Roe v Wade legalized abortion in the US, with perhaps 100,000 people, wide enough to take up all lanes on Market Street, and long enough to go beyond 1 hour to pass a given point. It was a warm, sunny 65 degree day, a welcome change from the constant rain earlier in the week....

text11/6/18 Election: Labor’s Gains & Lessons by Housing for All
There were 2 litmus test issues on the ballot, Cal Prop 10 to extend rent control and vacancy control and SF Prop C to house the homeless. The opponents of these 2 crucial measures to put an end to California’s and San Francisco’s housing emergency are the Nazi Trump voters, regardless of which party they claim to belong to, as these are the 2 workingclass propositions. Since Proposition 10 could only get 36% of the vote, it will have to be put on the November 2020 ballot because the housin...

textSF Election Fraud Alert on Prop C by Yes on C to House the Homeless
Less than 2 weeks before election day, we suddenly received an anti-Prop C multi-colored slick mailer from the Democrats' election fraud team led by one of its beneficiaries, Gavin Newsom, about to be installed as Governor, when most of the vote-by-mail voters have voted as we received our vote-by-mail ballots on October 6, 2018.
