Pro-Life Ads Surface at UCSD

Today, I learned about a pro-life billboard campaign on my respective campus.

Library Walk – which plays host to student activities at UCSD – boasts two of these ads: one near Geisel Library, the other adjacent to Center Hall.

40 Million and Counting is the group behind this effort. Below is their mission statement:

Our mission statement at 40 Million and Counting is to educate the public about abortion through marketing and advertising that will create a lasting impact and from there direct those in need to people that can help.

40 Million and Counting will show the truth about abortion to our audience through love, and not hate, understanding and not judgment, and to provide solutions and not condemnation.

The group recently unveiled a third billboard on campus. Details are elaborated below:

12/2011 – FMAC signs contract for 10 outdoor ads to go up all over the UCSD campus in San Diego, CA! These ads are going up on January 2nd in front of the bookstore, dorms, cafeterias, etc. The estimated impact is over 1 million impressions each month. Thank you to our donors for helping make this happen! If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to FMAC so that we can continue to advertise on the UCSD campus please make your check payable to: 40 Million and Counting and send to 46-E Peninsula Center Dr. #382, Rolling Hills Estates, CA 90274. Thank you!

It is encouraging to see these ads circulate on campus. As Americans become more pro-life, it is expected that the youth will follow suit.

 

San Diego City Beat Announces ‘Watch List’, Lists Me as Person to Look Out for in 2012

This morning, someone sent me news about San Diego City Beat’s “Watch List.” Apparently, I am one of 19 people to look out for in San Diego this year. Below is a caricature the resident sketch artist drew of me.

Here is the  blurb they wrote describing my efforts:

Gabriella Hoffman: If county Republican boss Tony Krvaric had been born with double-X chromosomes, he’d be UCSD senior Hoffman. Already, this socialist-bashing young conservative brought David Horowitz to campus, organized a national event to celebrate a Glenn Beck TV special and has begun blogging for, like, a hundred different local and national right-wing websites. This year, Hoffman will be released into the real world, where she will no doubt become the next Ann Coulter.

Military hero, and congressional candidate Nick Popaditch also made the list, along with several liberal activists. Interestingly enough, I am the youngest person profiled.

It is an honor to be recognized for my efforts. Let’s hope they don’t go KGB on me…

 

My Findings at “Occupy San Diego” — Yes, They Are Misfits, Goons, and Idiots

Today, The Rick Amato Show ventured to “Occupy San Diego”. Rick, our producer Sutton, yours truly (executive assistant) and several of our friends encountered socialists, communists, anti-Semities, and frankly, stinky people.

Rick was asked to speak today after he criticized the “Occupy Wall Street” movement as one that harbors and equally emboldens “misfits, goons, and idiots.” He accepted their invitation to speak and here is what we discovered.

Below is Civic Plaza in downtown San Diego, where the “Occupy San Diego” event took place.

Of course, how could we escape the anti-Semites?

Don’t forget the eco-fanatics either!

In journalistic fashion, I’ve included videos from the event, ranging from Rick Amato’s Tea Party speech to select interviews with event goers.

This video highlights the purpose of “Occupy San Diego”:

Below is Rick Amato’s entire speech:

Additionally, we interviewed several ” Occupy San Diego” attendees.

The first guy does not understand the term “small government.” Instead, he maligns capitalism with fascist African governmental systems:

The second guy admits to being a self-hating capitalist below:

Remember, socialism and communism do make us equal–equal in poverty and misery.

My parents endured communism in the former USSR in the Baltic Republic of Lithuania. Fortunately, they escaped nearly 26 years ago and came here to California. In their former homeland, they had no freedom. Most pointedly, they were subjected to food rationing, religious intolerance (both Mom and Dad), institutionalized anti-Semitism (Dad), poverty, universal healthcare, and exorbitantly high taxes. To set the record straight: Communism reduces people to human debris.

In contrast, the United States is the freest place in the world. You can start a business, live without fear, freely practice religion, go to university, and make money. What other nation ensures this success and happiness?

These people need to stop scapegoating capitalism (and Jews). Instead, they should go after President Obama, Jeff Immelt, George Soros, and the crony capitalists in Wall Street–not capitalism itself. Unfortunately, “Occupy Wall Street” apologists are being exploited by leftists and have become their useful idiots. Time will tell if they will wake up and ingest some common sense.

Stay tuned for updates from San Diego and California.

Occupy Wall Street Hooligans Bring Socialist Movement to San Diego October 7

It was brought to my attention that some here in San Diego–namely socialists and communists–are bringing the “Occupy Wall Street” movement to San Diego, California, this October 7th,2011.

Here is a video about the Occupy San Diego gathering:

This movement aims to overthrow capitalism in exchange for some “beautiful” alternative. No matter how many times we probe these people, they fail to offer an alternative to capitalism…

Undoubtedly, these hypocrites reap the benefits of capitalism and simultaneously want to destroy it. (Irony much?) Instead, they look to socialism for an answer. Both socialism and its ugly cousin communism are defined by collective farms, redistribution of wealth, poverty, pogroms, and nonexistent human rights.  Is this the alternative they seek?

The corporatists in Wall Street–who are sympathetic to crony capitalism, not free market enterprise–are to blame for our nation’s financial woes. Interestingly enough, these protesters have no complaints about them or their ties to the Obama Administration. Nevertheless, these Occupy Wall Street hooligans routinely blame capitalism  for their problems.

Why do people continue to dismiss history? Look at Nazi Germany, the former USSR, Vietnam, Cuba, and similar nations. Communism and socialism do not work. They reduce(d) people to human debris.

My parents endured communism and later escaped the former USSR. They came here to escape brutal conditions found in their former homeland. My mom–a devout Catholic–could not openly practice her religion. Similarly, my dad was subjugated to institutionalized anti-Semitism. Capitalism in America was the only system that could ensure their freedom.

The question beckons: if communism and socialism were so beautiful, why did my parents and other Soviet refuseniks/political refugees leave?

People need to think twice about socialism before demanding it here in America. Pay attention to the Obama Administration’s socialist programs being shoved down our throats.

Holocaust Survivor Irving Roth Comes to San Diego September 14th

This Wednesday, September 14, Holocaust survivor and campus speaker Irving Roth is coming to San Diego to speak about his life.

Sponsors of the event include Christians United for Israel-California and CUFI on Campus.

More information can be found on CUFI’s website and on the Facebook event:

The event will take place on Wednesday, September 14 from  7:00pm – 9:00pm.

The event will be held at:

Father’s House Church
2705 Via Orange Way, Ste A
Spring Valley, CA 91978

The event is free and open to all people.

Here is some more information about the speaker:

IRVING ROTH is the Director of the Holocaust Resource Center at the Temple Judea of Manhasset, New York, and is the former education director of the Holocaust Memorial and Education Center of Nassau County. An internationally known educator, Mr. Roth has endeavored to teach people about the Holocaust and the lessons that can be learned from that experience. Many people throughout his community owe their knowledge of the Holocaust to Mr. Roth. Steve Pagiavlas, the art director of the Holocaust Resource Center at the Temple Judea of Manhasset, says he is “…the most prolific Holocaust speaker I have ever heard.” Mr. Roth has been the recipient of numerous awards and accolades for his work promoting a more accepting and diverse world. It is his life’s mission to make the world a better place that has earned Mr. Roth the Spirit of Anne Frank Award.

This is a unique, one-of-a-kind experience for all to learn about the Holocaust and its toll on Jews, Christians, and the rest of the world. A first hand account is the best way to learn about the travesties that marked and defined the Holocaust. We must never forget.

Hope to see you there!

 

“Big Business Monkeys” Are Coming to Take UCSD’s Books Away?! Not Quite

The war over budget cuts at the University of California–one between leftists in the administration/professors and the UC Regents–is getting heated.

Watch out, fellow Tritons! Big Business Monkeys are going after our books at UCSD.

What is a big business monkey, you might ask? Simply the invention of one student who is dismayed by capitalism and is looking to make a scapegoat out of it.

Understandably, the university has no right depriving us of books. School officials always talk about children and optimal education, but most fail to deliver providing such quality education.

Professors and administrative officials arguably make too much money, and leave us–the students–with limited resources.

This finding is confirmed by The California Review:

UC student costs 1997-2011 vs CA state funding
• Also: # of Faculty and # of Senior Administrators.
• Student Fee is full student fee. State Funding is CA funding to the UC General Fund. Both are adjusted for inflation to CPI-U.
• The # of Faculty is full-time-hours equivalent of regular ladder-based faculty (most common type of faculty).
• The # of Senior Management is full SMG (Senior Management Group) & MSP (Manager and Senior Professional) count.

Watch this video. Although it addresses the problem of library closures, it vilifies the privatization of education and is full of inaccuracies.

From the Facebook event:

Education should be a public resource. Don’t let the Big Business Monkeys cut such an important part of our education at UCSD. Prevent the sale of books by borrowing as many books as you possibly can. Exercise your right as a UCSD student! Borrow a shit ton of books. It’s all based on this complex logical system derived in the highest minds of this supposedly prestigious institution:

Libraries cannot sell books, that they do not have.

So let’s remind UCSD that such frivolous cuts in this vital student resource will not be tolerated by fucking with them during the first week of school.

Just check out books, you should check out books you’re interested in. Let your check outs be representative of the subjects you as a student are interested in. Don’t feel like you have to read all of them, but let it show that students from all majors love the library system and need such an institution to keep a diverse collection. Show that such budget cuts on student resources is an intolerable and irresponsible decision.

Let’s have fun with this, tell your friends, will improve description in due time.

“I can only speak for one of the libraries on campus, but while books are regularly churned out of the stacks, there is an equal amount that is constantly being pumped in to the stacks to compensate. I don’t think it is necessarily a cause for panic. Facilities and operation hours are in much more jeopardy, and should probably be the focus.”

-> On this note, let’s publicize these concerns as well. This is purely gonzo logic, symbolism over action since we’re all minions in the UC game after all. Use the system to bring this issue to the forefront, confront the Capitalist concerns for what they are, show how the UC system is becoming more privatized and putting the students and their resources on the back burner. Check out that copy of Rings of Saturn that you’ve been meaning to read ever since you got into the writings of Walter Benjamin, I don’t know, say more and add to the discussion! let’s make this a learning experience, since that’s what you’re here for other than that piece of shiny paper.

In these difficult times, it is not (ever) wise to blame capitalism for the UC system’s financial failures. Instead, look to the people in charge and the exorbitant costs they’ve generated. It’s time that the higher ups (professors, administration) sacrifice too. Stop wasting our tax dollars.
