TALKING POINTS IN SACTOWN

ARMING THE CHOIR -

BSC, CA – It was another road trip for that other dynamic duo, Juanesto Fuego y Amigo, professional outside agitators in league with others who fight for our future – the kids. This is cosplay-for-real, with the role of a costume traded for a true life story and a noble heart as your power battery.

Though official legislation* is the reason for our rally gathering to kick off the idea of that legislation, casting an eye for said sponsor and visiting our governor as constituents was sought as well. The reason: paid corp lobbyists, cough, Monsanto, among others, kiss up early in the year to introduce crafted lies for profit over people projects.


After a day of reaching out to every State Assembly person and Senator who maintains an office at the Capital with the campaign promise from everyone's staff to pass it along [meaning almost no one refused our info sheet flyers**], we were tired because real life isn't Gotham City. However, if our life is a comic book in some yet-to-be-discovered CERN attempt, this rally was the chance to meet a real Justice League; heroes who are super in their efforts to wake up California and America/the World to the dangers of Glyphosate, now Prop 65 certified.With emotional eyewitness reports and homespun ditties from artists who write from the heart, we delivered justification and made fond new memories with the next generation.

Since the days of politicking for Prop 37 a policy of not phoning it in has been the calling card of our odd couple demeanor, illustrated by this gag picture shot the morning of the rally preparation.


It was chilly, cloudy, and nondescript as we set up for the day's rally.


Sound checks were made for our multi-lines of live worldwide broadcasting since we had some internationally known personalities,


As well as 2 rising stars to introduce worldwide. For Batman cosplay fans, can you spot these lady warriors in the picture below? Stay tuned for clues.


Soon we had our line-up of the unusual suspects; charming and riveting speakers all.


So we put on our game face and the rally began.


Pamm Larry was the first of our distinguished speakers being the initiator of the Prop 37 effort


Next up was Iowa farmer, Howard Vlieger, who learned about being organic at 21, the hard way.


Afterwards came Michelle Perro, MD and co-author of What's Making Our Children Sick? This is a down-to-earth look at our industrialized food system. Again it was personal experience but through child patient results as a pediatrician offered as proof.


Internationally known author and film maker Jeffrey Smith was the next powerful speaker.


No one can deny the mutual admiration society we all belong to, no matter the level of involvement.


And who wouldn't be when you can see people who may one day replace the Georgia Guidestones with their own statue in a park, like Kathleen Hallal, upscale and classy enough to get the City of Irvine to switch tactics in their weed program.


And speaking of involvement, two new faces hit the world scene via this broadcast around the globe. Remember our earlier photo question? The first new face to go national was another mother who also got her city to change their weed eradication techniques. Presenting from my former valley neighborhood, Menifee's Lisa Almendarez-Germo, seen here getting a hand from one of the troops.


Another Moms Across America veteran who stood up against the same oh - same oh and started a group of concerned moms in her hometown, Lisa was the only one to provide the answer to an audience question involving a shill using Prop 65 for misdirection at the later workshop. Lisa lost her mom to cancer a month ago.

No cause can move forward unless they tap the future. We fight for the future but our last speaker is the future, college sophomore activist, Emmett Koppe, whose personal experience brought her into the mix but also offered up hope for tomorrow.


Emmett is an organic gardener on a farm locally who was accompanied by her father, a farmer dad.

So ends Part 1 of our Sacramento rally coverage. Be here for Part 2, An Independent Hope - Meet The Troops.

(* - Present law prohibits spraying between the hours of 6AM -6PM weekdays only. ** - It was the first day of the Legislature therefore no elected members were actually expected to attend the rally or workshop after. - Ed)

Future shows same time slot each Saturday: January 13, Albertson Duo; January 20, Todd Morgan; January 27, Sac of Soul. For more info 916-485-2883. [version 2]
