Rally for Solidarity with the American Worker – US

Just happened to stop at the union offices on 16th Street and found out about this. They were informed of it happening just yesterday so it is really short notice.   Info page for Boise.

Although this may be cited as a solidarity for those workers currently demonstrating in Wisconsin, I think it’s also about supporting the workers within our own community, in other words, us.

Sponsored by MoveOn.org, AFL-CIO, SEIU, Color of Change, American Rights at Work among a few.

Something Exciting

Driving around this afternoon doing an errand I saw two signs on Veterans Parkway on the west side of the road.  One was at the intersection of Veteran’s Parkways and Adams Street on the southwest corner.  The other was at the corner of V-Parkway & Chinden, again on the southwest corner.  Both were on the fence facing VP.    Tried to grab a picture but my the traffics lights turned green too quickly – both of them!

The signs say:   ‘VOTE OBAMA’ and underneath ‘VOTE MINNICK‘ on blue & white.  Blue background, white lettering. ….. I think.  I was stunned.

Wonder what Mountain Goat will have to say; she’s led quite the charge lately on Minnick’s stances and political ads.  There’s good reading and information over there, by the way, so go – read.

Jus’ So Youse Know

Some time ago a commenter – Larry Good (lw.good.24@gmail.com) – became so obsessed with proving me right or wrong, can’t remember which, that he became a goddamned nuisance.  I don’t have time for such things nor am I willing to spend any time going around and around and around and around.

Sooo – those who are appearing here because you’ve been referred via Boise’s craigslist, this is what shows up to me when you visit my blog.  And there’s more information available.  (Update: It’s not shown on this particular screen shot, but the time, time zone,  date, etc., are viewed on another screen.)

Jus’ so youse know.  Ya wanna be an idiot, be it somewhere else because I’m not interested.   FYI: This jackass isn’t even from Boise; he’s from Texas.  Who goes to all the trouble to read a blog then go to the local craigslist and post something negative?   An asshole with too much time apparently spent up their ass.
