Sometimes in my quest to change the world, I get so frustrated at all the different progressive organizations that really just seem to be places for "Donate Now" buttons to have a home on the "internets".
In fact, if I get one more request from another DC based organization asking me for my measly cash, you might just see me on the 6pm news:
"This is Veronica Maria Candi Marie Shawntelle Jackson Chong Cardenal for the Eyewitness on The Street Eye In The Sky Action News Team in a rather shady, yet , will be hip in 5 years, neighborhood, downtown. A chubby ,but, fabulously dressed Negro seems to be standing on a 2nd floor ledge threatening to throw a laptop at Metro officers. The 28 year old political activist (hey, it's my blog, I'll be whatever age I damn well please.) says he can't take one more email from progressive rights organizations asking him to 'DONATE NOW'"
Well, The Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada, or PLAN, has a novel way of raising funds to do good progressive work all on CHASE Banks dime. It seems that CHASE is holding a contest on Face Book that will actually let people decide who should receive grants ranging from $25,000 to over a million Dollarroonies.
I shall explain.
PLAN is a coalition of about 30 groups dedicated to social, economic and environmental justice in the Silver State.
PLAN uses research, public education, leadership development and grassroots organizing to build power and create more humane solutions to Nevada’s problems
Moiself keeps up to date on all the very latest news and reports on the social, political and environmental issues facing the state by checking in at the PLAN website or watching vids at YouTube.

Politically active LGBT single and looking to mingle! Love to to laugh and think. Big on bios especially Political and trashy Hollywood stuff. Love old movies and classic cocktails. I'm very laid back until I want something,at that point anyone in my way gets mowed down. I will be a city councilman in Las Vegas within the next five years. Very conservative total liberal. Hate idiots on the left and right. PC makes me gag (and not in a fun late 70's way). I laugh all the time! I used to be on American Bandstand and had a spotlight dance to some awful QuarterFlash ditty with my partner Nanette Wallinsky, I believe we were the first interracial dance couple on AB, "we're goin' rockin...."!
