Gathering Reminder

Greetings,

So trump wants a parade, with tanks, missiles, service people in uniform, military bands, and who knows what else. He has directed the Pentagon to put it all together with a time frame for sometime in November. So is Mexico going to pay for this too? Or maybe we can ask Canada to foot the bill. There is some talk that if this happens, gathering veterans, and families of veterans who are opposed to such a waste of resources, to block the parade route. If one man can stop a tank, 100,000 people can stop a parade.

The budget, the deficit, the Dream Act, and the Spartanburg Drinking Liberally tenth anniversary pub crawl celebration are just some of the topics for discussion this Tuesday. Bring your thoughts to share to the corner.

Greetings Everyone,

We have a new member to welcome this week. David S. joined us for the first time last Tuesday. It was good to get to know him and we look forward to having David with us in the weeks and years to come. Welcome David!

A big shout out goes to Deb Morrow, a long time member of DL Spartanburg. Deb received the DONNA DEWITT AWARD from Progress
South Carolina for South Carolina Activist of the Year! Congratulations Deb! You certainly deserve this recognition.

The Secret Memo is out, and so is Trey Gowdy. From what can be known of the memo, its release did more harm than good for the trump administration. But what prompted Gowdy to call it quits? And who might be the Republican that files for his seat in Congress? It's always interesting in an election year.

The State of the Union. We all have our thoughts about this subject so let's gather together and hear what trump has to say. The speech begins at 9:00 PM this Tuesday. You know you are going to watch it, might as well view it with like-minded friends.

Greetings,

For those of us interested in a Voter Verified Paper Audit Trail system (VVPAT), there will be an organizational meeting Sunday January 28, 2:30 PM at Hughes Main Library, 25 Heritage Place, Greenville. The organizational meeting will address the vulnerabilities in South Carolina's electronic voting systems and the need for VVPAT. For more information please contact Suzy Hart at 845-986-3653, or go to PeoplePower.org.

Our government, very difficult to describe in words after one year of trump. It may still not be functioning Tuesday, under a shut down. Congress still gets paid but our military does not?? Much to discuss about this.

On a brighter note, we just may have pitchers to purchase at Southport Tuesday! The taps are in place, just need to be fine tuned for service. We don't know what the price of a pitcher will be, but we all remember sharing pitchers at our last gathering place. It's always less expensive to share.

Greetings Everyone,

We have another new member to welcome to our group this week. It was good to meet David last week and we look forward to having him with us in the weeks and years to come. Welcome David!

We have it from several reliable sources that Lee Turner will be joining us this Tuesday for sure. Ms Turner is running for House District 4, the position that Trey Gowdy now holds. Now is your chance to get to know Lee and learn about her ideas and thoughts going into 2018. It will be interesting hear Lee's slant on Mr. Gowdy's reasoning for recently removing himself from a committee chairmanship position.

The Upstate Coalition for Equality, UCFE, is sponsering a Women's March Saturday January 20th, 12:00 PM at Falls Park, Greenville SC. This year UCFE is being charged $1000.00 for use of the park and $50.00 per hour for each security person assigned to the event. Columbia had to cancel their march because of lack of funds but UCFE is still hoping to pull this off in Greenville. Help if you can. "There's something happening here and I just don't know what it is..." Maybe Lee Turner can shed some light on this for us.
