San Diego Hands Across the Sands - Speak out against offshore drilling.

Open Ocean

Saturday, February 3, 2018
Mission Beach at Belmont Park

Please join us for an important community event to protect our coast from new offshore drilling.

Trump's Department of the Interior has proposed opening 90% of America's coasts to offshore drilling -- from Maine to the Gulf, and from Alaska down to Southern California.
Join Us! RSVP here.
If Trump's plan becomes reality, spills will be inevitable  -- and devastating. In 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill damaged 1,313 miles of coastline. That's more than the entire length of California, or half the Atlantic coast. Offshore oil spills happen frequently, devastating marine environments, commercial fishing industries, and tourism businesses. Even without spills, offshore oil causes pollution.

We need to show this administration how deeply unpopular their drilling scheme is.
Local action is more important now than ever.  With your support, we can make lasting change in our communities helping to determine our energy future, working to help people of different backgrounds, struggles, and communities work together in solidarity, and protect our wildlife, lands, air and water.

No Nude Swimming Intro Part 3 Featuring Author Robert Gottlieb

This is a radio show that will be in archive. The live version will be broadcast at 
11 AM Pacific Sunday 14 January 2018
Call in Number 310-861-2349

A retired attorney (mostly tired and quit), Robert Gottlieb maintained a private practice in Los Angeles and San Diego for a total of 36 years.

Robert began his general practice focusing primarily on business clients, and in the 1980s began representing insurance company clients. His career as a lawyer provides the backdrop of experience against which he has painted with a broad stroke the disillusionment and exhaustion that haunt the majority of attorneys practicing today.

Born in Los Angeles, Robert lived most of his early life in the San Fernando Valley. He attended public school and graduated from law school in Los Angeles.

Early in his days as a practicing attorney, Robert began making and saving notes involving situations with clients, prospective clients, courtroom proceedings, and the humorous and often absurd stories related to him by other attorneys. It didn’t take long to realize that the practice of law, like any other business, is about people much more than about the law itself.

In the mid- to late 1990s, Robert began to create narratives from hi notes. No Nude Swimming is his first novel.

The main character in his novel is attorney Sam Weisman. His wife wants a divorce, and his law practice is threatened by a hostile takeover. Pulled one way by two hilarious con artists who plan to steal his dreams, and another by his family and the real estate professional who's worked her way into his heart, Sam struggles to hold onto his sanity, his self-esteem, and the woman he loves. Grasping the end of his rope in one hand and the end of his rainbow in the other, he teeters between the abyss ... and the pot of gold!

"Corporate media are largely weapons of mass distraction. Language is manipulated to manufacture consent and to limit the bounds of permissible thought. A golden rolodex of so-called experts produce a mono-chromatic one-note samba of drivel. That's one reason I started Alternative Radio out of my house many years ago. You can't simply whine and complain. You need to come up with positive alternatives that give people hope."--David Barsamian

The phone # is 858-278-8121. He is in room 15, bed 2. It is easy to get to, right off the 163 and Mesa College Dr. He could be there for a couple weeks so visitors are appreciated.

They have met in cities across the country (including San Diego) to craft bills which are then introduced into state legislatures: bills to block climate change and renewable energy laws, to make it harder to vote, to privatize education, to do away with collective bargaining and living wage laws. Their ultimate goal is to shrink the role of government so that the private for-profit sector runs the country, and nothing remains of the public sector.
