Is it time for new gun laws in the United States? Why?

Is it time for new gun laws in the United States? Why?

Semi-automatics should be outlawed—period. I'm kind of on the fence on the rest of the gun laws. I wish that we lived in a place that we didn’t have to have gun control, but unfortunately they are available to too many crazy people. So, definitely ban semi-automatics for personal use.

Will you go to D-League Warriors games in Santa Cruz?

Will you go to D-League Warriors games in Santa Cruz?

Yeah, I would. I'm a basketball fan, and we need more things like that, where people can go and have some fun. If they build it and actually use it for what they say they’re going to use it for, yes, I would do that.

Do you think that we as a nation are becoming more polarized?  If so, why?

I think so. There's many common issues that we’re all facing and we find unity in this economy. Everybody is going through their struggles. I think unity is the best savior.

What do you think should be done to address hunger in Santa Cruz County?

What do you think should be done to address hunger in Santa Cruz County?

I think that it would be great to turn all our ornamental parks into edible parks, and have more food education direct to the public. I think we should decriminalize feeding hungry people and make it completely OK for anyone who feels compelled and compassionate to go direct service and bring out a pot of soup. And I feel like it's about education and access.

What are your thoughts on the Supreme Court upholding Obamacare?

What are your thoughts on the Supreme Court upholding Obamacare?

I'm very much for Obama. I believe he's trying to do the best thing for as many people as he can, and I believe that it would be nice for everybody to have healthcare. We have to pay for auto insurance and home insurance, so why not health insurance?

What changes would you like to see to improve Downtown Santa Cruz?

What changes would you like to see to improve Downtown Santa Cruz?

I'd like to see a more family- and tourist- friendly vibe downtown. And a safe place for people to hang and feel like they can bring their families and relatives from out of town and not get harrased and harangued by various elements down here.

Would you support the use of drones in our skies in the name of security?

Aquarius Calling, Humanity Rising

Aquarius (11th sign after Aries) is the sign of service—serving one another, building community. Aquarius is fixed air, stabilizing new ideas in the world. When new ideas reach the masses the ideas become ideals within the hearts and minds of humanity. Air signs (Gemini, Libra and Aquarius) are mental. They think, ponder, study, research, gather and distribute information. For air signs, education and learning, communicating, writing, being social, tending to money, participating in groups and creating sustainable communities are most important. One of the present messages Aquarius is putting forth to the New Group of World Servers is the creation of the New Education (thus thinking) for humanity—one based not on commodities (banking/corporate values) but on virtues. Humanity and Aquarius Aquarius is the sign of humanity itself. We are now at the beginnings of the Age of Aquarius, the Age of Humanity (rising). The “rising” is the Aquarian vision of equality, unity, the distribution and sharing of all resources and of individual (Leo) creative gifts for the purpose of humanity’s (Aquarius) uplifting. This is the message in the Solar Festival of Aquarius (at the full moon) on Tuesday, Feb. 3. We join in these visions by reciting the World Prayer of Direction, the Great Invocation.Tuesday’s solar festival follows Monday’s Groundhog Day, or Imbolc (ancient Celtic fire festival) the halfway mark between winter solstice and spring Equinox). The New Group of World Servers (NGWS) during these two days are preparing for the upcoming Three Spring Solar Festivals: 1. Aries Resurrection/Easter Festival (April); 2. Taurus Buddha/Wesak Festival (May); and 3. Gemini’s Festival of Humanity (June). Aquarius and the new and full moons together are the primary astrological influences behind all of humanity’s endeavors. The NGWS are to teach these things, calling and uplifting humanity. Join us everyone. (301)
