If you could make one immediate change to the U.S. Government what would it be?

lt arielI think what would be most important is to have complete and total transparency of government, and then obviously to get government out of the pockets of big corporations.

lt leighGet rid of corporate funding for political campaigns. Make it all public contribution that is identified, and have limits on that.

lt deniseTerm limits and stop all lobbying, because then politicians would be more like us. They would think about their decisions and then they would make their decisions based on what’s good for the whole, rather than their individual, narcissistic desires. That’s why term limits work, because they’re not making decisions based on ‘I want to get re-elected.’ And if there isn’t any lobbying then it really does matter what’s getting voted on for the rest of us.

lt charlieI think they should have to advertise the companies they are endorsed by. Like NASCAR drivers, they would have the names and logos of the corporations that fund them the most on their clothing.

Santa Cruz Restaurant Week

A huge part of Santa Cruz Restaurant Week has always been about offering a great dining experience for an affordable price. For some locals, the $25 flat-rate cost has provided the opportunity (or the excuse!) to try new spots, and indulge in Santa Cruz fine dining in a way they might have thought too pricey before.

 

Scorpio Sun, New Moon Eclipse, Mercury Direct

The Sun enters Scorpio’s mysteries Thursday under a new moon and partial solar eclipse (something essential has come to an end, its purpose completed). In Scorpio we harbor secrets, are devoted to something deep, dark and hidden. Sometimes it’s ourselves. We can bring great suspect to our assessment of others. Scorpio is the scorpion, the serpent and the eagle—three levels of development. As the serpent we take shelter in our beliefs. Sometimes we bite (or sting). The eagle vanquishes old beliefs through its sharp intellect, soaring high in the air, seeking to understand through perspective. Understanding releases us from the bondage of fear. The eagle is like the mother soothing feelings of mistrust, offering protection. Knowledge does this, too.
