San Francisco’s Lyndon LaRouchies Don’t Like Obama’s National Health Care

This is right near the Financial District on Market Street - two people, some literature, and an ironing board, that’s your Movement in the Bay Area.

So, the LaRouchies don’t don’t like George W Bush, the Queen of England, and now, President Barack Obama. Makes you wonder who they DO like (besides Lyndon LaRouche).

Don’t Stop Believin’, LaRouchies!

How many pooches can you Spot? Click to expand, they won’t bite:

Were there any doggies inside this unattended pickup? At least one, anyway.

But don’t give just a four-star rating to your dog walker on the Yelp, as he/she would likely take that as an insult. Five stars are de rigueur, it would seem.

And the kids from UCSF Division of Clinical Pharmacology were looking for healthy smokers, something like this: Pharmacogenetics of Nicotine Metabolism in African-Americans. Make $300  by joining the study, why don’t you?
