April Week-end in Los Angeles, daVine

Cold --hot --rain --wind --ice balls --fog --hail --hot --local snow down to 1,500' --but if you're still not sure whether weather change is real, un-natural: billionaire brothers Koch, those wily owners of politicians, teabaggers, lobbyists, "think" tanks, "reporters" and coal they want to keep on mining without planet-lovers bothering them --surely spending their money well.
oh well, They just keep local yokels focused on "tobacco" --on cigarettes while 271 MILLION pounds of toxic carbon waste falls on all --changes all, every year.

This week-end: 0heat is on, in Los Angeles, dress accordingly, and go --close to home.

and Sunday April 17 - Opening - Public garden, 30,000 square feet, surrounding two historic renovated structures - Mexican American Cultural Arts buildings - LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes
A huge garden --smack in the middle between ugly Chinatown buildings --downtown banal box bores, no matter what else it serves, cannot be all bad. Take bicycle --bus --DASH, some children, neighbors to see: interactive exhibits, programs of Mexican American culture.

If you care about politics --free elections and/or have poor memory--
LA Plaza Opening is sponsored by: the retailer under national boycott, including Los Angeles --first corporation to put money--they got from you--directly into campaign of a candidate (right-winger) for office last fall.
After no-longer supreme court 'declared': corporations are people --broke historic 125-year precedent that banned corporate money into campaigns, now unlimited money allowed in elections, thanks to deceiver of Congress "justice" John Roberts.

If you think that trivial --irrelevant --not your business: 0whom do you imagine electeds will serve? 0The public --or their corporate masters? 0You: 0Don't want corporate ads in schools --billboards at reservoirs --nukes in the neighborhood? 0Good luck with that.

Get Angry or
You can contact the retailer: 0tell them you're joining boycott now and all through Christmas --contact LA Plaza management: 0share your thoughts --or just ask your corporate pals to spend millions to buy your choice of candidate for you....

Can you come?
Click below for more details and to RSVP:

I'll be there
I can come.

Can't make it
Sorry, I can't make it this time.

What: While vital government services get cut, corporations like GE are making huge profits, but paying no federal taxes. So, on Monday—Tax Day—in Los Angeles, and at hundreds of events across the country, we'll gather outside the headquarters and local offices of the biggest corporate tax dodgers to deliver tax bills from the American people. We'll demand that our leaders make them pay up, instead of cutting billions from programs that would create new jobs, drive economic growth and help the needy and our nation's children.
