D

Here is the simple answer.

Yes E Is simple, Taxing pot is a good thing,

No on D! Taxation without budget cuts is a

bad thing,

Also get ready to spend more money at the

gas pump, starting Wednesday, November

1. That’s when a gas tax, approved by the

California legislature in April, goes into

effect. California gas taxes will increase

by 12 cents a gallon and diesel taxes by 20

cents. Lawmakers say the taxes will generate

$5.2 billion annually over 10 years

for road and bridge repairs. However,

some California legislators are attempting

to repeal the gas tax with petitions that,

if enough signatures are obtained, would

place the initiative on the November 2018

ballot. We love our hard working council

members but....

versed great government. And is why I

suggest that LGBT community must fight

any new tax that is not levied fairly by

voting NO.

And the tax itself, claimed it is going to

this or that, but it actually just goes into

the general budget and can be spent on

just about anything. Even this might not

be so bad but if they don’t actually tie it to

a specific project, then even less people (a

simple majority)have to show up and vote.

That does not seem like my best interest.

Follow That Money and Vote NO, Ask why

all the “yes on D” signs are at the big hotels

that do not want to have their TOT tax go

up one cent either, Unlike the sales tax that

kill the lower income buyer, The TOT is

taxed fairly applied only to guests.

This is not a vote of confidence because

two new people on the board should be

HOW GAY ARTISTS REPRESENT THE STRUGGLE AND

ACHIEVEMENT OF LGBT RECOGNITION

Gay Pride gained national and eventually,

international recognition’ following

the Stonewall Inn Uprising in New York

City in June 1969. This event marked

the beginning of a continuing struggle

for the LGBT community to make

awareness of the human equality of all

the people identified as GAY.

Gilbert Baker designed the RAINBOW

FLAG in 1978 it was first used in a gay

rights parade in San Francisco in 1979

and now has become the universal

symbol of LGBT struggles and achievements.

Gilbert Baker died this year after

asserting that the movement for the

LGBT community is not over but only

beginning. Other artists have used the

rainbow symbol in numerous ways to

represent the pride and the struggle for

equality of gay, lesbian, bi, and transgender

people in the human community.

After gaining more positive recognition

for LGBT causes over the past decade

there is an anti-movement underway.

The advent of the Trump administration

not only overtly condoning and

promoting racism, and hatred of people

of various beliefs it has now attempted

to outlaw the participation of transgender

people in the military and take

away protection against discrimination

of LGBT people in the workplace

and society in general. Even if Trump

is removed from office, his successor,

Vice President, Pense has been quoted

as saying that all gay people should be

hanged.

Artist from all areas of the arts have

spoken out in their own medium against

Trump and his evil cohorts. From the

protest of VP Pence attending a performance

of “Hamilton” in New York to

the condemnations by actors and others

in the theater and motion picture

industries, rappers, musicians, writers,

visual artists, and others from all facets

of creativity are joining in to celebrate

Gay Pride and condemn bigotry and

hatred. Artists naturally are the heartbeat

of consciousness in a country and

they will continue to be on the forefront

to expose and rebuke the bigotry and

hatred of flawed politicians and others

in power.

The Rainbow colors have definitions

in the flag. RED stands for LIFE; OR-

ANGE represents HEALING; YELLOW

stands for SUNSHINE; GREEN: stands

for NATURE; BLUE; stands for SEREN-

ITY AND HARMONY; and VIOLET

represents SPIRIT. Now more than ever

GAY PRIDE has broadly encompassing

meaning and needs to be celebrated

with PRIDE.

THE LAST WORD by Greg Pettis

Well it looks like (hopefully) the beginning

of the end. The first indictments have been

handed down on three of the President’s campaign

aides from a grand jury impaneled by

the Special Counsel. And of course the President

and his cronies have begun the stonewalling,

name-calling and finger pointing.

Sure reminds me of Watergate and Richard

Nixon. Next will be the equivalent of the Saturday

Night Massacre where he fires the Special

Counsel and Congress finally does their

jobs and removes him.

I do predict that First Son-in-Law Kushner

or First Son Donald Jr will be the next to be

indictment and we will really see Donald Sr

goes totally ballistic. And Attorney General

John Sessions will also get dumped.

Locally the Palm Springs election are coming

to a head. Next prediction is Lisa Middleton

wins in a landslide. Coming in second will be

Ms. Holstege but by a close margin. Hampton,

Deertrack and Stone bunched closely together.

Should all this come to pass, it will be good

for Palm Springs and bring much needed stability

to the City....and ideally some healing.

Next up will be Rancho Mirage in April and

then the rest of the valley cities will be in

November of 2018. Of course we have a heated

County supervisor’s race in June. Heaven

for political consultants.

Afghanistan and Iraq since 9/11.

This will be the 13th year and we will be

posting flags and reading the names of 6730

fallen heroes. The flags will fly at Patriot Park

(Dinah Shore and Date Palm) beginning Sunday

for one week. Visitors are welcome night

or day, walk through the park and spend time

visiting the flags and remember the fallen.

That’s all for this week. Stand up. Rise up.

Resist.
