COVER

This may be the last

summer with peace

and stability in the

world. We are facing

an uncertain future.

Climate change is

coming as are political

changes. Californians

are, by accident or

design, the beacon

of the great gift or as

Benjamin Franklin

said "A republic, if

you can keep it". The

Constitution may not

play as they say in

Peoria but it's alive

and well here. I am not

worried about us, we

have been blessed with

entitlements, resources

and strong minded

people of all colors,

leanings and pronouns.

We are often called

libers, San Franciscans

or the left, but we also

have the right and

independents.

And we do not let

any group define us,

show intolerance or

otherwise unfairly act

against us. Fairness and

transparency is our

guide posts in all we do.

It allows this magazine

to run, gay bars to

Fair Use copyright (c) 1993 by the Author or by

Viet Nam Generation, Inc., all rights reserved.

a 1962 political manifesto of the American

student activist movement Students for a

Democratic Society (SDS)

Introduction: Agenda for a Generation

We are people of this generation, bred in

at least modest comfort, housed now in

universities, looking uncomfortably to the

world we inherit.

When we were kids the United States was

the wealthiest and strongest country in the

world; the only one with the atom bomb, the

least scarred by modern war, an initiator of

the United Nations that we thought would

distribute Western influence throughout

the world. Freedom and equality for each

individual, government of, by, and for the

people--these American values we found god,

principles by which we could live as men.

Many of us began maturing in complacency.

encounter and resolution.

While these and other problems either directly

oppressed us or rankled our consciences and

became our own subjective concerns, we began

to see complicated and disturbing paradoxes in

our surrounding America. The declaration "all

men are created equal..." rang hollow before

the facts of Negro life in the South and the big

cities of the North. The proclaimed peaceful

intentions of the United States contradicted its

economic and military investments in the Cold

War status quo.

We witnessed, and continue to witness, other

paradoxes. With nuclear energy whole cities

can easily be powered, yet the dominant

nation-states seem more likely to unleash

destruction greater than that incurred in all

wars of human history. Although our own

technology is destroying old and creating new

forms of social organization, men still tolerate

meaningless work and idleness. While twothirds

of mankind suffers under nourishment,

our own upper classes revel amidst superfluous

abundance. Although world population is

expected to double in forty years, the nations

still tolerate anarchy as a major principle

of international conduct and uncontrolled

exploitation governs the sapping of the

earth's physical resources. Although mankind

desperately needs revolutionary leadership,

America rests in national stalemate, its goals

ambiguous and tradition-bound instead of

informed and clear, its democratic system

apathetic and manipulated rather than "of, by,

and for the people."

As we grew, however, our comfort was

penetrated by events too troubling to dismiss.

First, the permeating and victimizing fact

of human degradation, symbolized by the

Southern struggle against racial bigotry,

compelled most of us from silence to activism.

Second, the enclosing fact of the Cold War,

symbolized by the presence of the Bomb,

brought awareness that we ourselves, and our

friends, and millions of abstract "others" we

knew more directly because of our common

peril, might die at any time. We might

Age was actually the decline of an


era. The worldwide outbreak of revolution

against colonialism and imperialism, the

and freedom and our abilities to visualize their

application to a world in upheaval.

seem to have weakened the case for further

change.

Some would have us believe that Americans

feel contentment amidst prosperity--but might

it not better be called a glaze above deeply felt

anxieties about their role in the new world?

And if these anxieties produce a developed

indifference to human affairs, do they not as

well produce a yearning to believe that there

is an alternative to the present, that something

can be done to change circumstances in the

school, the workplaces, the bureaucracies,

the government? It is to this latter yearning,

at once the spark and engine of change, that

we direct our present appeal. The search for

truly democratic alternatives to the present,

and a commitment to social experimentation

with them, is a worthy and fulfilling human

enterprise, one which moves us and, we hope,

others today. On such a basis do we offer this

document of our convictions and analysis: as

an effort in understanding and changing the

conditions of humanity in the late twentieth

century, an effort rooted in the ancient, still

unfulfilled conception of man attaining

determining influence over his circumstances

of life.

Our work is guided by the sense that we

may be the last generation in the experiment

with living. But we are a minority--the vast

majority of our people regard the temporary

equilibriums of our society and world as

eternally functional parts. In this is perhaps the

outstanding paradox; we ourselves are imbued

with urgency, yet the message of our society is

that there is no viable alternative to the present.

Beneath the reassuring tones of the politicians,

beneath the common opinion that America

will "muddle through," beneath the stagnation

of those who have closed their minds to the

future, is the pervading feeling that there

simply are no alternatives, that our times have

witnessed the exhaustion not only of Utopias,

but of any new departures as well. Feeling

the press of complexity upon the emptiness

of life, people are fearful of the thought that

at any moment things might be thrust out of

control. They fear change itself, since change

PRESS RELEASE

Desert Stonewall Democrats, the

only chartered LGBTQ Democratic

Club in the Coachella Valley, held

a public forum designed to feature

the Democratic Candidates running

for election in the newly created

Palm Springs City

Council District Elections. Over

100 people attended the forum,

which was held Tuesday, July 16th

at Mizell Senior Center. Prior to the

forum each candidate was asked to

complete a questionnaire regarding

their background and views on

issues and were interviewed by the

members of Stonewalls Political

Action Committee.

At the forum each candidate was

given time for an opening and

closing statement about their

candidacy. The audience then

submitted questions that gave each

candidate an opportunity to express

their views on a wide variety of

issues from homelessness to vacation

rentals to dealing with the closures

on Indian Canyon caused by the

weather. The audience was able to

gauge the depth of the knowledge

of the candidates and evaluate their

varying views on how to solve some

of the complex issues facing the City

of Palm Springs.

Immediately following the candidate

presentations, the members of Desert

Stonewall Democrats in attendance

were asked to vote by ballot on

the Political Action Committee

endorsement slate. A 60% vote was

required for endorsement.

We are pleased to announce that

80% of the membership voted for

the following endorsements:

District 1: Dual Endorsement – Les

Young and Grace Garner

District 2: Dennis Woods

District 3: Geoff Kors

Receiving an endorsement from

the members of Desert Stonewall

Democrats has traditionally included

support in the form of financial

contribution to each candidate,

campaign volunteer assistance from

the membership, and mail pieces to

Democratic voters. “We are anxious

to offer our support and expertise to

candidates who have expressed an

incredible understanding of the

VA DOCTORS CREDIT REP. RAUL RUIZ

FOR FIRING OF LOMA LINDA HOSPITAL

DIRECTOR

By Tom Swann Hernandez

Officially she resigned. On the record she was

ready to stop working for the U.S. Department

of Veterans Affairs. However VA doctors at

the hospital in Loma Linda California who

spoke on the condition of anonymity told me

this matter. Ruiz spoke to the hospital director

who defended herself by saying the VA staff at

Loma Linda was not working as hard as they

should be working. Ruiz looked into the matter

and found that statement was untrue. The VA

hospital staff told Ruiz the director was solely

responsible for the cutback in services. Ruiz

somehow had the director put into a position

that she either resign or be fired. We do not

know what channels at the VA Ruiz used

but we assume he spoke to the VA Secretary

or someone high up at the Department of

Veterans Affairs. Doctors say a new director

who they describe as “Asian-American” is

restoring the cutbacks in services to veterans.

As a result staff morale at Loma Linda VA

hospital has returned to normal.

this week that Rep. Raul Ruiz had the hospital

director fired because he determined she was

incompetent.

These VA doctors tell the story in this manner.

The hospital director began a large cutback in

services to veterans. Veterans complained to

the office of Rep. Raul Ruiz. One of the most

outspoken critics of the hospital administration

the past few months was AMVETS Post 66

First Vice Commander Chad Shipley. Shipley

accused the hospital administration of saying

falsehoods about their actions to reduce his

services. The VA hospital is not located in

Rep. Raul Ruiz’s 36th Congressional District.

However Rep. Ruiz veteran constituents are

served at that hospital on a regular basis. Rep.

Ruiz took the time to research and investigates

I do not believe Rep. Ruiz is going to write a

press release on this subject. And I doubt if his

staff will offer any quotes to the news media.

But VA doctors insist the director was “fired by

Ruiz because she was incompetent.”

This demonstrates that Rep. Raul Ruiz is the

“real deal” and the “genuine McCoy.” He is

a full-time Member of Congress who meets

with his constituents, listens to their concerns,

researches and investigates, asks tough

questions and then makes bold decisions that

improve the quality of life of his constituents.

Ruiz replaced former Rep. Mary Bono--

Mack in the 2012 election. Elections have

consequences. Bono-Mack would never have

had the courage to take this bold action. For

example Bono-Mack originally replaced her

late husband Sonny on the House Armed

Services Committee and the sub-committee on

military personnel. This means it was her subcommittee

that voted that active duty military

The Northeastern Native American

Tribes encompass an area reaching

from Main to Wisconsin on the north

to as far south as South Carolina and

over to Illinois. The women of these

Tribes made clothing, basketry, and

many tools. They also planted and cared

for most of the agricultural crops and

typically caught or harvested most of the

food used by a Tribal group. Men built

houses, hunted and fished and made

most of the tools used for this. They

also participated in warring and holding

councils.

use and efficient in design for everyday

purposes. Moccasins were worn by

both men and women which were also

made from leather and frequently had

designs with beading sewn into them.

When European explorers came to this

geographic region they found that there

were belonging groups in this area. They

associated with linguistic groups from

the Algonquian, Iroquoian o Siouan

language groups.

The clothing fashions of the Northeastern

Tribes were similar within most of the

Tribes. For men, clothing consisted of

military. Her sub-committee was in charge of

the ban on open LGBTQ in the military.

In November 1999 Bono-Mack was scheduled

to speak before the Riverside County Veterans

Advisory Committee at the former Rock

Garden Café in Palm Springs. Former County

Veterans Services Officer Bili Densmore

invited me to attend as President of the Palm

Springs Gay Veterans. Some of our members

like Daryl James, Fred Bilodeau and Charlie

Sharples attended. When Densmore told the

staff of Rep. Bono-Mack that gay veterans

were planning to attend the breakfast meeting

her Public Affairs Officer (Frank Cullen)

came to the meeting and said Bono-Mack

had mysteriously suddenly been called back

to Washington DC. As a result Bono-Mack

was the only Riverside County Member of

Congress or state legislator that never spoke

before the veteran’s advisory committee whose

members are appointed by the County Board

of Supervisors. Bono-Mack requested that

she be reassigned off of the Armed Services

Committee to the Energy Committee.

There are many other such stories about Bono-

Mack that can be shared at another time. Her

record on gays in the military was both positive

and negative. In the final vote to repeal “Don’t

Ask, Don’t Tell” Bono-Mack voted with the

Democrats to repeal that policy.

The former hospital director met with me in

person and did in fact provide me with some

assistance at the hospital. Rep. Ruiz did not

give me permission to share this story about

his superb work for veterans. However VA

hospital staff are very grateful to him and

they have asked me to share this story not to

embarrass the former hospital director (whose

name we are not mentioning). Instead they

want to make sure the veterans in his district

know that he accomplished something very

important that helps the hospital staff serve

our veterans. So AMVETS Post 66 salutes

Rep. Raul Ruiz and we still wish to present him

with an award plaque that we had to cancel on

Memorial Day 2017 due to my sickness.

And we also want to alert Ruiz staff that

World War II Navy veteran Daryl James

(who appeared as an endorser of Ruiz on TV

commercials in his 2012 election campaign)

is in serious poor health. The former hospital

director that was fired cut back the aid and

assist services that the VA headquarters

promised to provide Daryl. We request that

the staff of Rep. Ruiz contact the new hospital

director and ask him to expedite restoring the

promised aid and assist services to Daryl who

is 93 years old and lives alone in Palm Springs.

We trust Rep. Ruiz will help Daryl prolong his

life.

THE LAST WORD

IMIGRATION

VS. RACISM

When someone complains, it's a gift.

Let us be factual, immigration to the

United States is the international movement

of non-U.S. nationals in order to reside

permanently in the country. This is an

occupancy issue then and not one human

right should be abridged. Still, we must

remember that the white immigrants still

complained that the slaves below them were

too loud.

The gift helps to make things better.

We once called us the melting pot, where all

things merged. Today, we are more a tossed

salad but some still want it to be like "thye

old days", that somehow got enshrined in

our history books. Where perception ruled

like an invisible, but controlling hand. But

it was not true fore all. Many people are

told they have a lane. As the grandson of

an immigrant that came here, not knowing

our language at 14 and was detained alone

for at least 3 months, ended up owning one

of the largest walnut farms in California.

But corporations used the invisible hand to

shut her out and take her land. So you can

trust me, when people complain, it's usually

because they are denied something they

deserve.

counter to what is just, we bear the charge of

theft. Albeit a new idea, a better change and

a better world. You have stolen something of

value from anther person.

Racism is never a gift, it is criminal theft,

because if you value life, then its penalty

should be severe. But sometimes we feel

it's just a harmless thought or a minor

oversight. But it's not. It's like watching a

friend rob another. Silence = Complicity.

When you really listen, you're exchanging

great gifts.

This is a nation of laws, but really, there

are two major divisions, civil and criminal.

Often things can be both, like spanking

your child. Nearly all research suggests

that immigration to the United States is

beneficial to the U.S. economy. But we have

labeled it bad. "Why?" should be the bigger

question. If immigration created the greatest

nation on earth, won't making immigration

bad make our nation worse again?

When you act, you're are using that gift.

Today, we are faced the bigger question

justice asks. Is this fair? Civil and criminal

laws that are not fairly applied are not just

bad, they break many other laws. They

invite corruption, lawlessness and despair.

Racism allows some people to overlook

despair, as some seem more deserving then

others. As does all other forms of theft

because you now you are taking it without

consent.

Each gift has different values, but the same

worth.

Being PC or kinder and gentler is no excuse

When we act in a way that allows anything to ignore theft. It's like being gay, even if
