The predominantly Queer San Diego Democrats for Equality turned their June 28 meeting into a love-fest for their candidates who survived the June 5 primary and moved on to the November 6 general election. In the first test of their new policy against endorsing or rating candidates who aren't 100 percent for marriage equality or reproductive choice, they also refused to consider an endorsement or a rating for socially conservative Democrat Juan Vargas for Congress in the 51st District.

Redistricting, Open Primaries and the Challenges for Democrats (tags)
At the January 27 meeting of the predominantly Queer San Diego Democratic Club, Jess Durfee, chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party and former president of the club, explained the challenges the party faces as the citizens’ redistricting commission begins work on redrawing legislative lines for the 2012 election and beyond. He also talked about California’s new open primary law, which also goes into effect in 2012 and allows members of any political party, or of no party at all, to vote in primary races, with the two top finishers from the primary running against each other in the general election even if they’re from the same political party. California’s Democratic leadership opposed both these changes, but Durfee’s presentation focused on making them work and protecting the party’s interests in this new electoral environment.
San Diego’s Queer Democrats Discuss Election Aftermath (tags)
The predominantly Queer San Diego Democratic Club heard from three local experts — San Diego County Democratic Party chair Jess Durfee, San Diego CityBeat editor David Rolland and political consultant Jennifer Tierney — on the aftermath of the June 8 primary election at their regular meeting June 24. The discussion centered mainly on how Democratic candidates like state gubernatorial nominee Jerry Brown and local City Council candidate Howard Wayne can overcome the vast advantage of Republican money — and, in Brown's case, the multi-billion dollar personal fortune of his opponent, Meg Whitman. The club also took a position against SB 1070, the controversial anti-immigrant law recently passed by the Arizona state legislature.

Health Advocate McGuire Speaks Out for Single-Payer (tags)
Andrew McGuire, who's been active in grass-roots health campaigns for over 35 years, came to San Diego May 7 to speak at the First Unitarian-Universalist Church as part of his campaign to get a single-payer health care system enacted and operating in California. McGuire was eloquent about the "immoral, demeaning and lethal" health care system the U.S. has now, and the political pressures making reform impossible at the federal level,but even some progressives in his audience were concerned about details in the plan he was promoting.
Medical Marijuana Caregiver Convicted of Drug Dealing (tags)
Until May 28, 2008 John Ottombrino was just another yoga and massage teacher, giving lessons and alternative health information from his home in Kearny Mesa. Then police broke in his door and arrested him for cultivation of marijuana and possession with intent to sell. Though he was growing it for three medical marijuana patients and had letters from their doctors proving it, the cops ignored that evidence — and so did the judge at his trial, who wouldn't let him introduce evidence that he was providing caregiving services for his clients.

The Vatican and its primary cohorts are the secret rulers of Planet Earth and their primary tools of governance are secrecy and the deceptive triangle formed by money, religion, and politics.

Rahm Emanuel: Face of Change? (tags)
A formal announcement by Obama of his chief-of-staff pick is expected this week.

So, too, has that of Emanuel, although his divided loyalties--he was a close friend of Bill and Hillary Clinton and a congressman from Obama's hometown of Chicago--sidelined him during the Democratic primary campaign season.
4 Fascist Initiatives on Cal Nov Ballot; Need to Ban June Elections (tags)
With 21 weeks to go to the November presidential election, we now have 4 fascist initiatives on the November ballot which could pass as the Republicans will vote, unlike this June election, when enough Republicans stayed home and enough tenants voted to prevent the repeal of rent control that was Prop 98.
June Cal Ballot: No on 98; Yes on 99 to Save Rent Control (tags)
The fight to save the homes of millions of the workingclass in California will be on the June ballot, namely opposing Prop 98 and supporting Prop 99 to save rent control. Since the June primary will be a low voter turnout election, we need every supporter of rent control to vote in the June primary, No on 98 and Yes on 99. This is literally a matter of life and death for renters as we will be homeless if we do not have rent control.

Pro-Israel Donors Rally For Joe, as Left Takes Aim (tags)
What is insidious about the two pro-Israel PACs mentioned. They don't reveal what they stand for in their names and both PACs are from outside of Connecticut. It is the policy of pro-Israel PACs across the country to only contribute money to politicians outside of their respective states based solely on a candidate's position on Israel. In other words, these Israel-Firsters, for they are nothing less than that, have made a policy decision that the welfare of Israel should have a higher priority than the desires of the voters in the states where they funnel their contributions. No dual-loyalty problem for these guys.

Why Third Parties Should Join Independent Voters in Voting “Yes” on Prop 62 - Open Primary (tags)
California Prop 62 has provoked a mighty controversy in the Democratic and Republican Parties – where reformers supporting Prop 62 have clashed with party bosses who want to maintain the old order. And, it has also provoked a controversy within the independent movement, where reform independents are backing Prop 62 while the third party establishment is aggressively opposing it. . .

They're Corrupt Cause You Don't Vote! (tags)
In all the years I've been working political campaigns in Canada and the United States I can't tell you how many times I've heard the expression "Why should I vote, they're all corrupt". When I hear that statement and I must've heard it a million times (there, I said how many times), it always reminds me of the chicken and egg theory and which came first. Did politicians become corrupt because you elected them or did they become corrupt because you didn't?

Summary: There are moments in our nation's history when a tradition that we once thought constitutional becomes constitutional no more. The history of the right to vote in this country includes, in fact, a series of such moments. Today, we must face up to the newest voting-rights barrier: the "wealth primary"--a direct analogy of the racist all-white primaries of the past.
