Win Tix to Jello Biafra & Friends at the El Rey 10/25

jelloThe esteemed Mr. Jello will be bringing his roving band of merry men to the El Rey this Sunday for what’s sure to be a lighthearted and flippant, politically apathetic hoedown. With his band entitled the Guantanamo School of Medicine and supported by MIA (not M.I.A.) and Triclops, Biafra is a don’t-miss if you want a good party on a Sunday night. Yeehaw!

Wanna go? Tell me your pet political cause or whatever gets you riled up, in the comments below. We’ll pick a few lucky winners to go enjoy the show.

  1. Well damn. I am one of those annoying people that spends what little free time she has volunteering. While I’m definitely into the rights of women and animals, my pet political/social cause would have to be the plight of homeless children and the lack of a decent education they receive thereby causing cycles to continuously repeat themselves…

  2. I’d love to say Prop 8 and Jello would have my back on this, but that’s probably cliché. The sales tax is really getting out of control in California. I love California, but they may cause me to move where I don’t have to pump my own gas. I’m talking about a little place called Portland.

    California is “forcing me to do somethin’ I don’t wanna do. To leave. To, to go out and just leave and go home and say, make a clean cut here and say ‘no way, Corky, you’re not puttin’ up with these people!’ And I’ll tell you why I can’t put up with you people: because you’re BASTARD people! That’s what you are! You’re just bastard people! And I’m goin’ home and I’m gonna… I’m gonna BITE MY PILLOW, is what I’m gonna do!'” I’ll let Corky St. Claire from Waiting for Guffman deliver my political rants.

  3. In what way is the Electoral College system Democratic?

    The literal definition of Democratic is a government by the people. A configuration of government in which the ultimate power is bestowed by the people and applied directly by the people or by their elected advocates under a free electoral situation.(http://dictionary.reference.com, 2009) My vote within my state has certain connotation of sorts that effects but could also be ignored toward which candidate receives my state’s electoral votes. (http://www.archives.gov) I have researched this issue
    to death and this is all I could come up with to defend the Electoral College’s integrity toward Democracy. The residual obscurity of our government avoidance toward where the statistics and facts are leading us as a people is staggering. It has left me with a surreal perception that our government has abandoned us as the masses are left to soak within an Orwellian existence. As a political science teacher once added to her lecture “Well at least I do not have to worry about being killed on the way to cast my vote .” I have to agree that does equate a particular form of Democracy. As a first generation American who has lived all over the world I can empathize when my Mother, who was born in Greece tells me “This is the best damn country you will find in the world.” What a wonderful reason to try to make improvements like…

    Election Reform Now!

    Wouldn’t it be nice to be able as an American to start comparing our elections with the best case scenarios instead of the worst.

    Jello You Rock!

  4. Currently, I’ve become involved in OVC-LA, which stands for Open Voting Consortium, Los Angeles. We’re trying to get LA county to use a voting system that relies on open source software and prints a paper ballot in order to ensure transparency, security, and reliability in voting. No more proprietary voting machines which leave the voter in the dark about whether his vote counted and which leave the public in the dark about how the votes were processed.
