Weekend Open Thread: 5:30 TODAY, Honda Center! Another Friday, Another Homelessness Protest!

Latest in a series … that will likely be paying for a loooooong time….

Why do we keep covering the Homeless Protests in Anaheim instead of the fine work that your group is doing?  Well, JUST LOOK AT HOW ACTIVE THEY ARE!  If you want this sort of coverage, do as much as they’re doing!  (And it wouldn’t hurt for you to have someone in your group, organization, claque, faction, or tendency pitch in to write about it, too.)

(Oh — and a special call-out to the hilarious anonymous commenters at the Cunningblog and Chumley’s Pleasure Palace: No, I’m NOT going to be there personally!  This is what I can afford to do, timewise and other business-wise (including child-care), right now — and I am glad to help out how I can.  If you truly think that this makes me a hypocrite, try saying so under your own name!  Otherwise, the irony makes you look even stupider than usual!)

We may well add to this — updates will go above — but for now THIS IS your Weekend Open Thread.  Talk about this, or whatever else you’d like, within reasonable bounds of decency, decorum, and discretion.

About Greg Diamond

Somewhat verbose worker's rights and government accountability attorney, residing in northwest Brea. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Occasionally runs for office to challenge some nasty incumbent who would otherwise run unopposed. (Someday he might pick a fight with the intent to win rather than just dent someone. You'll know it when you see it.) He got 45% of the vote against Bob Huff for State Senate in 2012 and in 2014 became the first attorney to challenge OCDA Tony Rackauckas since 2002. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level, nor do they now. A family member co-owns a business offering campaign treasurer services to Democratic candidates and the odd independent. He is very proud of her. He doesn't directly profit from her work and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he truly hated.) He does advise some local campaigns informally and (so far) without compensation. (If that last bit changes, he will declare the interest.)
