CALIFORNIANS RAISE UP TAKE YOUR SHIRT OFF AND ACT LIKE YOU CARE BOUT SOMEBODY

Recommended Posts

2010 is a big year for voters in Oakland and California. In addition to races for mayor, city council, and governor, there will be impactful ballot initiatives to consider. One of the most troublesome is a statewide ballot initiative that would essentially kill California's "Global Warming Solutions Act" (AB 32), a trailblazing plan to create countless green-collar jobs in California.

 

Right-wing ideologues are already organizing to kill this bill because it holds polluters accountable by requiring them to fund AB 32's implementation. We're gearing up to protect California's economy and our environment. Get in the game by learning about AB 32. Stay tuned for more details!

I thought you couldn't vote over there if you had a criminal record? Wouldn't that mean like 12 people in all of Oakland are eligible to vote?

White people live on hills and dont have criminal records in Oakland. And black people don't vote anway which is why Ch0 is the perfect audience.

What can a nigga do,

When half the people voted for George W.

Life's a bitch, 'cause George W., can't be true,

I wanna choke him, 'cause he's a snitch,

I'm talkin' bout George W. Smith, from city council,

He ran in '93 out in Oakland, you probabably didn't hear about him.

Roll your eyes all you want, it's still gay as fuck.

 

If people want to do things to better the environment that's great, but the way it's shoved down everyone's throat is so fucking stupid. Really, Planet Green TV station? Seriously?

 

The only thing I really recycle is pizza boxes...THINK OF ALL THAT SHIT I'M WASTING! OH MY GOD, SOMEONE MAKE A LAW, QUICK!

Trees are cool too but the green movement's more about extending job training and creating thousands of careers in widely impoverished areas, lowering electrical bills, ending oil dependency, reducing asthma rates in inner cities, and reclaiming public land.

I'm not in favor of a militant approach, but you can't deny the severity of the situation. But i guess it's more important to be witty on the internet though

Militancy=community working together for a common good. Individuals can't really do much on their own. Oakland knows.

the one area where I'm all for government pushing weight around. it's the only way to make shit happen. and yes, the jobs it creates is a ton of icing on the cake.

Recent statistics say that if the world as a whole doesn't decide to take drastic measures on global warming by 2015, we will have reached a 'point of no return' so to speak. Some might call that severe.

Chubbs you're right, but you're not gonna get anything done without the help of others, which is why you have community groups like the Ella Baker Center bringing people together (and actually showing the rest of the world how to do it, which makes it kindof exciting to know the whole world's watching oakland), and why I made this thread.

 

Joiiiin usssss. Just kidding. But not really

If you don't give a shit about the environment, just think about all the jobs these new initiatives will create for people who have lost their jobs with corporations moving their production to other countries. There's more to it than saving dolphins and trees.

You're completely wrong. Ella Baker Center is the model used by every green collar jobs program in the world. The end result is tens of thousands of jobs being made in america, and hundreds of thousands in the world. Chicago's a great example. They took the Ella Baker center as a model and developed their own local photovoltaic industry, incidently also creating a fine glass industry. It means every solar panel that goes up in Chicago is locally made, meaning jobs to build them, jobs to put them up, and all the savings are local.
