THE ‘28’ WHO WOULD BE THURSDAY*
|Downtown Riverside, Christmastime|
Riverside, CA – In 1972, after living in Indianapolis for a year, I hooked up with a neighborhood activist group and joined the movement against King Richard aka ‘Tricky Dick’, or Richard Milhous Nixon, who was President at the time. Up until that election time, this political adventure enabled me to see the rest of the state through events in cities like Muncie, Fort Wayne, South Bend, Anderson, and Gary, where I heard Jessie Jackson, who was still wearing his bibs back then. Politics, like travel, broadens one.
Occupy LA allowed me to become familiar with Los Angeles and now Prop 37 appears to be continuing my political scenic route in the state. First stop, Riverside and the next meeting of the 28ers, an organization designed to get the money out of politics through the 28th Amendment which [will] bans corporations as people [Citizens United, 2008], money as speech, , and requires ALL elections to be publicly funded.
