Who Says That We Can't Win Our Freedom Back?

A petition-based effort to repeal the ban has succeeded in forcing a vote, according to a memo to council from City Clerk Brenda Cirtin.

When we get up off of our couches, things begin to turn in our favor.

  1. Pity about Hawaii, J.

    A legalistic trick by the Majority Leader, I believe.

    I wonder if the bar owners there have plans to circumvent that trick? We shall have to wait and see, I suppose.

  2. Junican-

    I don't quite understand how this little maneuver, courtesy of the Majority Leader, is legal; how can it be? What has taken place amounts to a total and complete subversion of the entire democratic process. Indeed, we'll have to wait and see what happens.
