AdLib On January - 30 - 2011

Courtesy of the fantastic folks at Common Cause, we are pleased to be able to present a live feed of the panel discussion and the pro-democracy rally being held in Rancho Mirage today, literally right across the street from where the Kochs and their cronies are simultaneously plotting to further undermine our democracy and economy.

The live broadcast of the panel is scheduled to begin at 11:00 am and run until 12:45 pm. Speakers at the panel will include:

  • Robert Reich – the former Labor Secretary
  • Erwin Chemerinsky – UC Irvine Law Dean
  • Lee Fang – Center for American Progress blogger and Koch Brothers expert
  • Van Jones – Founder and Former President of Green for All,
  • DeAnn McKewan – California Nurses Association Co-President

After the panel, there will be a rally featuring a performance by The Billionaires and an introduction by Jim Hightower of activist leaders and regular citizens who will share stories that expose the real world harm done by the Koch brothers and their cabal.

I will be at the event and live blogging here at The Planet so here’s hoping everything works as it should!

      Can’t wait to see ’em, Cher! Rest well.

      • Chernynkaya says:

        Hi kes. I hope I can figure out how. AdLib gave me a quick tutorial, but those margaritas kinda interfered. 😉

        • kesmarn says:

          😆 Sounds like you had fun!

          Hey, if you could get those bullfighting pix into your article, you can do anything! I still struggle with images. b’ito had to supply the image for his own anniversary tribute! 😀 How’s that for incompetent?

          And without the help of margaritas, either!
