Yesterday was the Dennis Kucinich fundraiser and speech in Sierra Madre. It was a beautiful Sunday morning, and a nice sized crowd gathered to hear Dennis speak. The event started with a short speech by Dawnelle Keyes, who was in the movie Sicko. Dawnelle lost her young daughter when she took her to a hospital that was not in her network (Kaiser). They refused to treat her sick child, who got continually worse until she died. Dennis promises to bring single-payer health care without profit to insurance companies to all. Next a boy named Evan got up and sang a song. I don’t know the title but it had to do with building a bridge to Peace. Then it was time for the man, the only candidate worth voting for next November. Dennis wowed the crowd talking about war, health care, civil rights, and impeachment. See it for yourself.
(After the speech I spoke briefly with Dennis, and gave him a couple of H.L. cards, he put them in his pocket right next to The Constitution and Steven Colbert. So Dennis if you are reading this, great speech yesterday. Thank You.)
The Hollywood Liberal started in 2004 at the height of the Bush Administration madness in America.
We were inspired by the late great Bartcop.com. The very first thing I did when the site started was to get arrested at the 2004 Republican National Convention in New York. My arrest at the start of a march from The World Trade Center was later ruled unconstitutional by a federal judge. As of May 2014, we are still awaiting the final settlement and conclusion of the case. I posted daily on the blog up until the end of The Bush error, and the site is now run as a news aggretor. Feel free to browse the old postings, pictures, & comics (an HL favorite) It reveals the twisted history of the times. Thanks H.L.
