"No Koran Was Harmed In The Writing Of This Piece" is a piece we wrote for Third that goes with the comic. I'm really proud of this piece and as I see so few bother to speak up even after the fact, I'm even more proud of what we accomplished. So many people would be rushing to defend the burning of the American flag on legal grounds but they were no where to be found on this issue because, apparently, free speech to them only means the right to desecrate American symbols. If that's harsh, I really don't care, I'm sick of the chickens.
"Jerry Brown Attacks Bill Clinton And Hillary Clinton - Defeat Jerry Brown" (Hillary Is 44):
On November 2, 2010 Jerry Brown must be defeated. He was known as “Governor Moonbeam” decades ago. He has always been a Hillary Clinton hater. He has always been a Bill Clinton hater. Defeat Jerry Brown on November 2, 2010.
Jerry Brown is running against Meg Whitman for governor of California. Recently Meg Whitman aired a campaign advertisement against Jerry Brown. Because Jerry Brown is running on his record as Governor Moonbeam it is fair to explore his record. Meg Whitman wisely sought out what Bill Clinton said about Governor Moonbeam when Bill Clinton ran for president against Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown. [Meg Whitman is taking our advice (see HERE) to Republicans and demonstrating how wise our counsel is. See also, HERE. ]I'd already said that I was going to vote Green so Jerry Brown didn't lose my vote but people here -- at least in the Bay Area -- are talking about how crazy Jerry Brown's sounding. If he wants to win, he better learn how to start acting like a person because right now people are talking about him bad. Really bad.
This is a press release from the California Green Party on another state race:
Debatable Debate: Tonight's Boxer, Fiorina Senate debate a 'sham' between multi-millionaires claims Green Party Senate candidate; he's banned from Wednesday event; protest scheduled
GREEN PARTY OF CALIFORNIA PRESS RELEASE
MORAGA (Sep 1, 2010) - The U.S. Senate debate Wednesday night between incumbent Barbara Boxer, Democrat, and Carly Fiorina, Republican, is nothing but a "sham" said Duane Roberts, the Green Party candidate for U.S. Senate today.
Roberts, who has proposed a debate among all qualified candidates, said he and other independent, smaller-party candidates were not invited to the debate at St. Mary's college Wednesday.
**Laura Wells, Green Party gubernatorial candidate who's been banned from the Governor Debates, will join other pro-Democracy demonstrators protesting the closed debate.
"This is a sham debate between two multi-millionaires backed by big business interests. I doubt they are going to say much of anything about matters that affect a majority of working people here in California," said Roberts (www.voteforduane.wordpress.com)
"What are Boxer and Fiorina going to talk about? They agree with each other on many issues. They represent what voters are rejecting. To elect either one will just mean more of the bad government people don't want," he added.
Roberts, a community activist from Anaheim, said his views are populist and independent of the special interests that dominate today's politics and politicians. And that's why he is being excluded from the debates - to ensure voters don't know there is a candidate who represents their views, not corporations.
Roberts is critical of both parties on everything ranging from the wars in the Middle East to healthcare, noting: "The healthcare reform bill profits Wall Street billionaires who control health insurance companies. Driving private insurers out of business would save billions of dollars and guarantee everyone has access to high quality healthcare."
He also said he would put education as his priority, something politicians also say, but can't afford because they are voting billions of dollars to multiple wars.
