Friday, October 6th, 2017

I guess her competition is listed here.

It looked just like the kickoff for current Supervisor Mark Farrell – same location and about the same crowd size.

OMG: “Trumpcast Live in San Francisco” – SLATE’s DJT-Obsessed Podcast Records Show at Nourse Theatre Nov 14th – $15 and Up

Friday, September 8th, 2017

[“The Golden City?” What the…? You can say Frisco, I’m srsly. Here’s the latest scholarship, as of 2017:

SFGate predicted awhile ago that the young and hip would revive it. Joe Eskenazi wrote for SF Weekly that it’s mostly old white people who don’t like it. And Buzzfeed launched a “Call It Frisco” campaign last year.]

All the deets

TRUE BELIEVER, 2017: “TRUE POLITICAL POWER COMES FROM AN ORGANIZED WORKING CLASS FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE”

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Let’s see if I’ve got this straight here:

TRUE POLITICAL POWER COMES FROM AN ORGANIZED WORKING CLASS FIGHTING FOR JUSTICE – CWA Political Action

As seen in the Lower Haight, just yesterday, the wordiest T-shirt I’ve ever encountered:

And here’s the contra:

Peasant Woman: We don’t have a lord.
King Arthur: What?
Dennis: I told you, we’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune. We take it in turns to act as sort of executive officer for the week…
King Arthur: Yes…
Dennis: …but all the decisions of that officer have to be ratified at a special bi-weekly meeting…
King Arthur: Yes I see…
Dennis: …by a simple majority in the case of purely internal affairs…
King Arthur: Be quiet!
Dennis: …but by a two thirds majority in the case of more…
King Arthur: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet!
Peasant Woman: “Order”, eh? Who does he think he is?
King Arthur: I am your king.
Peasant Woman: Well, I didn’t vote for you.

Frisco’s St. Patrick’s Day Parade Gets a Wee Bit Political: JOIN CAMPAIGN FOR A UNITED IRELAND TODAY?

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

Wasn’t it former Supervisor Chris Daly who wasn’t welcome at the Chinese New Year Parade because of the Tibet problem? I think so.

But here’s how 2017’s St. Pat’s parade looked like:

“BREXIT MEANS BORDERS?” All right. So is that a good thing or a bad thing?

I didn’t see the whole parade, I’m just a bit surprised to see this is all…
