Two years ago on July 31 Occupy Sonoma County hosted the Sonoma County Climate Activists Summit at the Peace & Justice Center. 73 people attended representing 24 Sonoma County climate change groups.
We agreed to continue meeting every month that has a 5th Monday. Together we formed the Sonoma County Climate Activist Network (SoCoCAN!).
This is an active network that coordinates and supports local climate change activism.
The next meeting will be on Monday, July 29, 7-9 PM at the Peace & Justice Center, 467 Sebastopol Ave., Santa Rosa 95401. One of the things we will be discussing is having another summit in early October.

Nature: Re: The Paradox of Preservation: Wilderness and Working Landscapes at Point Reyes
From: rossmen      Posted: June 17, 2019, 7:05 am
When:  Thursday, August 1st; 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Location: Laguna Environmental Center, 900 Sanford Road, Santa Rosa
Why is the Laguna foundation promoting a paid talk on their turf about something they have no skin in? Bearcracty in action. Let's make money on the end of the world.

Quote Laguna Foundation wrote: View Post
Both Point Reyes National Seashore and the Laguna de Santa Rosa could be described as “Leopoldian”, or places that exemplify Aldo Leopold’s ideas about the interconnections between wild and cultivated landscapes - yet the practicalities of including active agriculture within a federally protected area like Point Reyes National Seashore bring their own challenges. The history of Congressional intent to protect the continuation of over a century of dairy and beef ranching on the peninsula has come into recent clashes with the idea that public lands “should” be dominated by wildlife and recreation use. Laura Alice Watt’s recent book compiling years of research addresses how environmental history can help us to understand, and perhaps solve, this management dilemma. Join us for this thought-provoking talk that will chronicle how national ideals about what a park “ought to be” have developed over time, and what happens when these ideals are implemented by the National Park Service in its efforts to preserve places that are also lived-in landscapes.

Laura Alice Watt is a professor of environmental history and policy at Sonoma State University. Her long-term research agenda is to explore the history of protected landscapes to bolster their long-term sustainability in terms of both natural and cultural systems. In contrast to most land policy research, she uses landscape as a tool for understanding the complex interactions between people and their environments, tracking historical changes in protected areas as indicators of shifting social dynamics and structures. Prior to coming to SSU, she worked as an environmental consultant in San Francisco for four years with EDAW, Inc., specializing in writing resource management plans for the Bureau of Land Management, as well as historic landscape analyses for a variety of government agencies. Outside of school she is an avid photographer and sailor.

While I respect your opinion that Pete might be the right person for the job, and I appreciate your thoughtful summation of all his valuable qualities, I'm not reading anything from this that indicates what his actual policies are. No argument from me that Buttigieg is a very intelligent person that speaks multiple languages, has a big picture perspective, an appealing style of discourse and is a liberal, gay, religious guy which might enable him to bridge the gap between a variety of social subgroups – but..... what are his politics?

The summation of what I know about his politics is that he is a centrist left party player Democrat. That might be exactly the standard bearer you would like to see in the Oval, me personally, not so much. I'm hoping we can seat a champion of and for the working class people. Someone who will get in the trenches and fight the health insurance industry, the fossil fuel industry, the pharmaceutical industry, the military industrial complex, the prison industrial complex, giant agribusiness and Wall Street. I've heard nothing about Buttigieg, or from him, to indicate he is that person.

Though it appears that you've attempted to make a case for him as a viable prospect for president I'm still waiting to hear something of substance about him rather than the package. Certainly I acknowledge that some of the qualities you point to are more substantive than merely gender, ethnicity or religion but at the end of the conversation there's no information about his politics, where he stands on issues and what, if any, concrete plans he has to implement his positions.

I'm repeatedly dismayed at the ongoing discourse around the packaging and personalities of these candidates rather than the issues, policies, alliances and track records that they bring to the table. I suspect that a Buttigieg administration, as well as a Warren or Harris administration, would look like business as usual with a continuation of unfettered capitalism, economic and racial injustice and more market based reactions to social and environmental problems.

That having been said, if that's the vision one has for our nation then those are probably wise choices. Which brings me to the salient question, what is our long view? Have we thought about what comes after the election or are we so distracted with beating Trump that we no longer consider the big picture?

Quote Barry wrote: View Post
All else being equal, I'd like to see a woman be the next president. However, all else is NOT equal. Each candidate offers a unique blend of talents and identities.

I am also "most attracted to the cute, smart, gay guy", Pete Buttigieg! You can tune into Pete by watching one of his longer interviews, or town halls. Aside from being a talented polyglot, he has an exceptional talent for seeing the bigger picture and framing issues within their larger context and based on the values of Freedom, Security and Democracy. He appears to have taken George Lakoff's lessons regarding framing when it comes to messaging. It's a skill that so many on the left lack.

He also comes off as just plain reasonable, rather that combative, or as a fighter, who invites others to share his vision in a compelling way. I think he would be very helpful in healing our divided country. While he is very liberal, he makes compelling arguments, to those on the center and even the right, including reaching out to the faith communities by encouraging them to embrace the values (and thus policies) they profess to believe.

He is also exceptionally real, present, and authentic. Many interviewers have commented on what a genuine presence he brings. At the same time he has made some cutting indictments against Trump, while deftly sidestepping and returning jabs thrown his way. Being that he is such a unique character, and Pete refuses interact with Trump on his low level, I think he will be our best contender to defeat Trump!

I often forget he is gay. Oddly, in the current backlash against old straight white males, it may help him, in at least the Democratic primary. He also uses it to embrace and include all the other subgroups that experience "othering", be it by race, or gender or....

He has also all but declared he would select a woman as a running mate. I think there is no doubt that there will be a woman on the Democratic ticket in 2020!

Re: A Modest Proposal for Peace in the Holy Land
From: rossmen      Posted: June 17, 2019, 6:49 am
What I know about israel/Palestine is that until the right of return extends to recent herstory and all residents get a vote, there will be war. The idea of a Jewish state is worse than racism, or many other isms I could name, one of the foundations of our flawed country is separation from religion. Why do we support this for Jews?
WaccoBB WaccoBB WaccoTalk


Alice-in-Wonderland, are you still there? Mr. Snoop seems to have taken a break. Perhaps he is asleep – or perhaps he is on vacation in the everglades. Anyway, he has left this thread – for the present. Perhaps you can speak for him. For you wrote:

“...yes I recently joined and it’s obvious I am here because I support the outing of Tavares and Co – no conspiracy there... and no, I will not be putting up my personal details. I will assist by encouraging people to look into the data and evidence – it speaks for itself...”

I must commend you upon the diligence of your work – in studying all of the many, many links that Snoop provided us on this thread. Were I to ask for a show of hands, I doubt that many here would have shown such interest and such selfless fortitude in devoting so many hours to such a tedious study.

So I ask you: Could you examine just one more link? – it is an hour and forty minute interview – and get back to us on it and give us some feedback as to what your impression is?

Here is the link:

This is a couple from Oregon – I get the impression that they live in Josephine County – who interviewed Rodney Dale Class back in 2012, when he was running as a write-in candidate for president.

Somehow, I fail to see in this well-spoken, and articulate Southern gentleman, the thug that Mr. Snoop4truth described in the following words:

Snoop4truth wrote:

“Rodney DALE Class is Deborah Tavares’ partner in ALL of Deborah Tavares’ legal hoaxes. I have copies of all of Class’ criminal records. But, I have no way to provide you with links to them (and they are not available online). But, what follows is the truth about Rod Class’ criminal history...

“Class is a functionally-illiterate, amateur legal theorist with barely a high school education WHO HAS LOST EVERY SINGLE CASE IN WHICH HE HAS EVER BEEN INVOLVED (OVER 76 CONSECUTIVE LOSSES IN A ROW, AND STILL COUNTING). Further, Class has a long history of PSYCHIATRIC PROBLEMS involving DELUSIONS, PATHOLOGICAL OPPOSITION/DEFIANCE of AUTHORITY FIGURES and PATHOLOGICAL LYING. Moreover, Class is a MULTI-CONVICTED, WEAPONS RELATED, FELON who also has SEVERAL ADDITIONAL MISDEMEANOR CONVICTIONS, as well. Because of Class’ well-publicized HATRED of our ELECTED representatives, their appointees and our REPUBLICAN form of government, because of his HISTORY OF PSYCHIATRIC PROBLEMS and because of his LENGTHY CRIMINAL HISTORY involving DEADLY WEAPONS, Class has actually been placed on the UNITED STATES TERRORIST WATCH LIST!”

“Again, I cannot speak to who Deborah Tavares hangs out with. But, I can speak to who Deborah Tavares’ partners with in creating legal hoaxes and I submit that he represents a threat to those of us who expose their hoaxes....”

I also have a serious problem of cognitive dissonance with that last statement, because I spoke with Deborah Tavares on the telephone and she adamantly denied even knowing Rodney Class. I tend to believe her. She certainly seems sincere.

She also stated - categorically - that she did not create "Judge Dale" - and that his articles, books, missives, et al, were already online before she discovered their existence.

'Uncle Sam is Sick' by Steve Fowler
From: Occ Cntr for the Arts  Supporting Member  
Posted: June 17, 2019, 12:55 am
Uncle Sam is sick
Yeah, heart, lungs, arteries—
And you know he is an addict,
Gotta have his luxuries,
Borrows money from his enemies
Which never reaches his extremities.

Uncle Sam is sick
You all know the malady:
An addict makes his family pay,
Pimpin' Lady Liberty
Right out in the light of day.
Keeps his bank account full
By chargin' kids to go to school.

Uncle Sam is sick
Sam has always been a bully,
Stealin' stuff from other folks
But now his greed has blossomed fully
He's the butt of nasty jokes.
“Sick is good,” he thinks with glee,
“Helps to grow the G.D.P.”

Uncle Sam is sick
9-11 was his heart attack.
Now he's hangin' with a crowd
Of plutocrats and autocrats
And braggin' 'bout it right out loud.
Poppin' pills in fancy cars,
Thinkin' he can fly to Mars!

Uncle Sam is sick
He sure needs an intervention—
Tellin' the truth is a good first step,
Help hin set a sober intention,
Help him fix his damaged rep,
Help him redirect some wealth
To improve his mental health.

Uncle Sam is sick
Not-for-profits are getting' bigger
To threat the symptoms he reveals,
But 'cause his finger's on the trigger,
He thinks no one can stop his deals.
Still, before he runs his final scam
We gotta 12-step Uncle Sam.

'Cause Uncle Sam is sick!

Re: Poem for the day from Larry Robinson
From: Larry Robinson  WaccoBB Poet Laureate  
Posted: June 17, 2019, 2:55 pm
the gift

you were sitting there
not rocking, in that chair
by the window
i wanted to say goodbye
it was time to go
my womanhood just
beginning to lift off
smoke curling from
the cigarette dangling
between your bent fingers
i wanted to say goodbye
to that heavy thing
you carried on your chest
the air stifled, close
it was time to go
i slowly found your side
leaning in to kiss
your cheek, leaning
into the barbed wire
and left the gift
of my lips between
your cheekbone
and your clenched jaw
“i will see you in a
few weeks” i said
and waited for you
to lift your face
your eyes met mine
and the words
“kiss of death”
fell from your mouth
they sounded soft
almost tender
we were frozen
in time, the light
slanting in long strips
thru venetian blinds
it was just the two of us
a strip of dark, a line
of light, a thin wire
between us
the tightrope on
which i walked
to the door
it was time to go

- Fran Carbonaro
