Guided by the spirit of Toypurina (who led a revolt against the San Gabriel Mission in 1785) and following the White Rabbit, Alicia leaves modern-day Highland Park and explores Arroyoland. This land is both an interpretation of Lewis Carroll's fantasy world and the Arroyo Seco of yesteryear.

Medical Marijuana defendants face 7 years in prison - Trial set to start (tags)
Joe Grumbine and Joe Byron have been offered a two felony deal with no jail time if they plead guilty. Both have refused, insisting that their medical marijuana collective activities are legal under state law. Medical Marijuana is an affirmative defense meaning the defendants must prove their innocence similarly to a self defense level of proof. This gives tremendous power to California judges who can ensure a guilty plea by denying a medical defense. Judge Charles Sheldon, Dept. K has already declared that he will not allow a jury to hear the truth, he will not allow patients to testify or expert witnesses on California medical marijuana issues. If they are convicted, both face up to 7 years in state prison.
Chuck Schumer (D) Calls for Train Station Gestapo Zones (tags)
New York (D) Senator Charles Schumer is calling for a no ride list for Amtrak passenger trains. Anti-war activists may be targeted (as they were on no fly lists) for this no ride list, thus preventing them from traveling via planes AND rail. Guess the anti-war activists will need to either hitchike or take Greyhound if they want to go somewhere without a car?

One and One-Half Class Citizen (tags)
The California Supreme Court decision on May 26 upholding the validity of Proposition 8, the ban on same-sex marriage voters approved in last November’s election, but also ruling that the estimated 18,000 same-sex marriages in California between June 15 and November 4, 2008 were still legal, left the same-sex couples who got married in time (including this author) in an anomalous position. We can’t really call ourselves second-class citizens because our marriages are still in force, but we can’t call ourselves first-class citizens either because other couples with love and mutual commitment equal to our own can no longer follow suit. In a sense, the voters and the courts have granted us “special rights” we neither wanted nor expected.
Oh, That Trillion Dollar Financial Bubble, It’s Leaking! (tags)
It’s here! Author Charles R. Morris calls it: “The greatest credit bubble in history!” He insists that the “writedowns and defaults” of credit devices will “come out about $1 trillion.” Problem: President George W. Bush, Jr. is in denial about the crisis. Like that amiable dunce, President Ronald Reagan, he contributed to this horrible mess by turning the country over to the Vulture Capitalists and also by launching the Iraq War with its price tag of $3 trillion!

All Reds and Greens would certainly have voted Yes and that is what makes Reds and Greens viable.

FBI Charles Rasner names Austin Indymedia, Food Not Bombs Terrorist (tags)
And then a perpetrator or bunglar on the side of militaristic over reaction in the Waco tragedy has the nerve to call indymedia free speech supporters and a group 'food not bombs' that gives away vegetarian meals 'terrorists' ! ? Truly when the Bush Regime confines 'free speech' to a cage or 'corral' what more does Mr. Rasner want in his rage to gut the Constitution and the First Amendent ?

Mantas Inc,Herndon, Va, Pro-Money Laundering Arm of International Bankers,Brokers (tags)
Mantas Inc. whose expertise is supposedly anti-money laundering has allowed untold millions or perhaps billions of laundered dollars go unchecked by criminals or even possibly terrorists through our banking , brokerage and market maker systems... promotion of Endovasc penny stock by Agora Inc. of Baltimore followed by massive dumping of 'up to 30 million shares' from a Charles Schwab account is proof but still not even the tip of the 'share-money laundering' iceberg they are apparently paid to ignore. Charles Schwab sold the corrupt market maker business to CSFB not long after that and many other illegal pump and dump schemes in partnership with LOM of Bermuda.Mantas Inc.was rewarded for not doing its supposed job of guarding against money laundering and illegal pump and dump activities by being contracted by CSFB to oversee 'ati-money laundering' activities of CSFB who bought Charles Schwab's market maker business.It should come as no surprise unfortunately that the CIA's In-Q-Tel has been an investor in SRA International, Inc (NYSE:SRX), and that its other parent company Safeguard Scientifics, Inc. (NYSE:SFE) actually shows every indication of having been an illegal pump and dump itself having been promoted even by Agora Inc. inthe past to near $100 per share a few years back to having become a penny stock today .

Along Baltimore City’s Peace Path (tags)
On 09/11/05, demonstrators in Baltimore City turned out to protest rabid militarism and the Iraqi War. If this action also leads political hack, Sen. Barbara A. Mikulski (D-MD), to speak out against the Iraqi War and to stop funding it, it will be a huge success! Her priority has been to give tens of billions of taxpayers’ money to Israel, while the Chesapeake Bay is dying from “dead zones,” and the levees at N.O. were in desperate need of repairs.

“Privatizing Social Security may be good business for Charles Schwab, but it’s a bad deal for working Americans,” Chicago Federation of Labor President Dennis Gannon told the multiracial and multigenerational crowd of 300 that overflowed the sidewalk in front of the giant investment firm’s office here. “The stock market is a gamble,” Gannon continued, “I’ve got a mother who is 83, a daughter who is 22 and I’m 52. Privatization puts us all in jeopardy.”
