What Gerald said last night ...

Gerald is an ex-black panther who has a couple of weekly shows on LUVeR. he is also giving LUVeR his music and political library. (A lot of people are giving LUVeR their complete record collections!) - Frank Moore

What Gerald said last night ...

We told Gerald about Frank's interviewing John Sinclair, reminding him of who that was. He was very impressed, and wanted to hear that interview because, he said, Frank always gets to good stuff, and he knows it was a good interview. He loved the endorsement quote from John Sinclair!

We had also printed out Frank's platform, including the new planks, and showed them to Gerald. The first thing he mentioned was that he thought the copyright patent laws were already supposed to be as Frank was proposing, but as he talked through it, he said he guessed that those laws have been subverted and manipulated by big corporations. Reading the next paragraph, about businesses selling their products in the U.S., he said now that would never get past THEM. They, the corporations, have so much invested in exploiting people in other countries, places where there really is barely a government to speak of to control anything about its work force.

He was saying that ever city is supposed to have one public access channel, but that doesn't even happen. In Oakland, they tried to pass off Soulbeat as public access, but it really was a commercial station, privately owned and operated, and so really was not community access, like anyone could come in, do a show, say what they wanted ... like BTV is real public access. He said he has been thinking about doing stuff on BTV, but TV is so much work! Not as easy as just coming in and doing his radio show on BLR, where it doesn't matter what he looks like, etc. We said that even TV can be really easy ... he could do it the same way he does his radio show, it would just be on TV, like how Democracy Now started ...

He really loved "Election Day will be a paid holiday." He said, now that ... that makes sense. We pointed out that Frank was the candidate of the "Just Makes Sense Party", and he laughed ... he said he has been thinking that on some level for a long time, but never said it. He said he was going to have to steal that one ... At some point, he said he wanted to use this on his show ...

He really liked limiting the bill length to 5 pages ... he said he tried to read Bill Clinton's crime bill when it came out, strategically released after the Oklahoma City bombings ... did we know how long it was? 1,000 pages! He couldn't get through it.

On the marriage plank, he thought the churches should stay out of it, that marriage should be a civil institution. If people want to go to church and have a religious ceremony, that's fine ... but he felt it should be a totally civil thing. He wondered how you would prove that you were eligible to be a "family"?

One of the things he also said was that Frank doing what he does makes him feel like he can really do what he wants to do. If Frank can do all that, he can certainly do what he is dreaming about, which he felt was a great thing about Frank. He said he really liked Frank and everyone and would be spending more time over with you if it wasn't for those CATS!
