‘SPINtervention’: Frame yourself or get framed

drinking liberallyWe live in a world flooded with fact-free spin.

Faux News started it.

The astroturf Tea Party used it to rise to power.

And billions of dollars from the Kochtopus are being spent to perfect it, with the goal of solidifying corporate control over our government.

Don’t be depressed. Come hear Andrea “Connect the Dots Lady” Witte talk about spin and messaging tonight (March 26) at Drinking Liberally Tucson.

Witte explains complex issues– like healthcare reform or the federal deficit– by combining easy-to-understand graphics with facts and witty commentary. I’ve heard her speak on multiple topics, and she’s always entertaining and informative. Be prepared for some “ah-ha” moments. Event information in the BfAZ calendar here. Schmoozing begins at 6 p.m. on The Shanty’s patio, talk at 7 p.m.

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela J. Powers

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals–not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election.

My platform focused on economic reforms to grow Arizona’s economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, grow local small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs.

In the Arizona House, I was a strong voice for fiscal responsibility a moratorium on corporate tax breaks until the schools were fully funded, increased cash assistance to the poor, expansion of maternal healthcare benefits, equal rights, choice, unions, education at all levels and protecting our water supply.

After three terms, I retired from the Arizona Legislature in January 2023 but will continue to blog and produce my podcast “A View from the Left Side.”
