***WED JAN 18 at 11:45 am – 1:00 pm " Protest SDG&E's New Solar Fee/Tax " SDG&E wants to impose a new fee (aka TAX) on homeowners, schools, businesses, and others with rooftop solar. This is a shameless effort by this investor-owned utility to increase profits and control renewable energy sources. It would be devastating to the local clean energy industry and jobs. Because of increased costs, public entities, like school and water districts, would have to make further cuts to essential services. Homeowners who bought solar systems they could afford would be stuck with higher bills. We need policies to shift us toward clean energy and a sustainable planet, not away from it. Join us this Wednesday to say "No, you can't take my sunshine away!" Facebook RSVP: https://www.facebook....­ (PLEASE INVITE ALL YOUR FB FRIENDS) For more information contact: Masada Disenhouse, or 619-335-1265 Background and current information on this issue: and WHERE: SDG&E Energy Innovation Center, 4760 Clairemont Mesa Blvd (in the Diane Shopping Center). SDG&E is holding an open house of their new innovation center to impress regional VIPs and the general public. We'll be gathered outside. WHAT: We will be holding signs, singing, talking to passersby and the press. . . . . PARKING: There is large parking lot on three sides of the SDG&E Center. Please park to the sides rather than directly in front of the Center. We will gather on the public sidewalk between the parking lot and Clairemont Mesa Boulevard at 11:45 am. Please arrive promptly at 11:45 AM as we will practice our song and distribute signs.

***SAT JAN 21 " CITIZENS UNITED ANNIVERSARY " Our national movement to restore Government By the PEOPLE by amending the Constitution has exploded, with cities and counties across the country passing resolutions supporting an amendment that would overturn the Citizens United decision. The New York City Council is voting TODAY to pass such a resolution. We've teamed up with allies including Public Citizen, Move to Amend, Common Cause and many others to educate the U. S. citizens in this country about the dangers of unlimited corporate influence in elections and help foster a groundswell of public support for amending the Constitution to reverse Citizens United! Hundreds of public events will take place on and around the Citizens United anniversary, January 21. And leading up to that, we hope to engage as many Americans as possible in planning events, and equip them with the tools they need to organize anniversary events in their communities.

Ask Roy Zimmerman. He's been writing satirical songs for twenty years. The Los Angeles Times says, "Zimmerman displays a lacerating wit and keen awareness of society's foibles that bring to mind a latter-day Tom Lehrer." Joni Mitchell says, "Roy's lyrics move beyond poetry and achieve perfection."
