Theatre For The 99% On 5/3, 5/4, & 5/5 At Good Jobs-Great Houston—Generate Your Own Content And Work Hard

My first-rate friend and associate Caleb Travis has asked me to promote the event you see discussed in the poster above.

Here are some more details of this event—

LookOut Arts Collective, a theatre company supported by the University of Houston, presents “Theatre for the 99%”. LookOut was founded in 2011 by students who met while studying under Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Edward Albee, and Tony Award winner Mark Medoff. Co-Artistic Director Caleb Travis explains: “We were inspired by the democratic revolutions across the world, and hopeful that the Occupy movement would put social, economic, and environmental violence in the spotlight here at home. We wanted a theatre company dedicated to speaking truth to power, and edifying an audience of the 99%”. Since then they produced two full length plays, an interactive art piece, and a music festival. This May the group will showcase a festival of five short plays exploring such relevant themes as power and poverty. They are the world premiere of The Dinner Table by Sawyer Estes, Down and Out by John Patrick Shanley; Loyalties by Murphy Guyer; The Judges Wife by Caryl Churchill; and Picnic on the Battlefield by Fernando Arrabal. There will be a talk back with the actors, directors, and playwright Sawyer Estes following each performance.

When? May 3rd — 5th. 8 p.m.
Where? Good Jobs = Great Houston
2955 Gulf Freeway, Houston, Tx 77003

Caleb is a smart guy and I’m certain these will be good performances.

A way that you make progress is that you generate your own material, and then you work hard to use that content to help direct the debate on the great issues before the public

The work of  freedom and progress is up to each us. We each need to take responsibility for the course of our society.

Often the way we take individual responsibility is to work collectively for shared goals.

Please consider attending Theatre For The 99%.

Strong Protest At Senator John Cornyn’s Office In Support Of Good Jobs, Investement In America, and Increased Taxes On The Most Wealthy

The good Americans you see in the picture above were protesting today outside the Houston office of Republican U.S.  Senator John Cornyn.

These loyal Americans were demanding tax increases for the most wealthy, good jobs, and a federal budget that invests in America. They were out protesting because they know that the work of freedom is up to each of us.

Our Tea Party/Republican Party foes never rest in helping the rich get richer, and in making sure that hard honest work does not pay off for everyday Americans.

These protestors were part of the Good Jobs=Great Houston Coalition.

Here are the member groups as of so far in the Good Jobs coalition.  You can click on the logo of each group to learn more about what they do.

It is up to each of us to be involved in our future.

Every Texan and every American has the ability to attend a public meeting, attend or organize a protest, write or call an elected official, talk to friends and family, start a blog, donate money, write a letter to the editor, volunteer for candidates and causes, engage in acts of civil disobedience, and even run for public office.
