New Items, New Activities

Meeting Tonight Wed 9/25
Posted Wed Sep 25 10:34:17 2002 by Our second meeting of the year will be held tonight in 228 Dwinelle 6:30 PM. One issue on the table is to resolve our scheduling conflict with the Cal Gun Club, but since they'll also be meeting in Dwinelle 6-7 it shouldn't be too much of a problem to find them. Stop by!

Meeting Thursday, Terrorism
Posted Wed Sep 12 09:21:33 2001 by Webmaster Kevin Meeting Thursday, Sept 13th. We will be discussing the terrorist attacks, and stuff arising from that.
Meeting Thursday
Posted Wed Aug 29 19:06:54 2001 by Webmaster Kevin We're meeting Thursday, August 30th, at 7pm, in 88 Dwinelle. We will be planning our activities for the semester.
Off to a good start
Posted Mon Aug 27 22:02:32 2001 by Webmaster Kevin First day of class and we're already officially registered. This means we will have a room for our meeting on Thursday. Stay tuned to this page (or better yet, bookmark it), for a time and location. We're also out tabling, and you know you want to table. It's fun and you get a tan. Occasionally some nutcase will come up and tell you about being abducted by aliens. If you don't know how, mail us and we'll tell you how.
World's Laziest Man Accomplishes Something
Posted Fri May 25 17:32:22 2001 by Kevin Peterson I have added a weblog like feature so that the webpage can be modified by people other than me. This will hopefully mean that in the future, the page will actually be updated for stuff like meetings, etc.
Cal Libertarians Front Page of Daily Cal
March 16, 2001 Several of us went to the David Horowitz event last night to show support for free speech. Today's Daily Cal had a shot of the crowd centered on our sign saying, "Cal Libertarians Support Free Speech for Everyone". The article doesn't mention us.
Taliban Executes Prostitutes in Public
February 27, 2001 While we're complaining about the republicans trying to push for parental notification of abortions and stuff like that, it's easy to forget the absolute horrors you get when you have a real theocracy. See also the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (warning: the photo gallery is not pleasant)
January 27, 2001 I know there's people out there with pictures from past events. If you have them scanned, email me a copy. If you don't have them scanned, let me borrow them so that I can scan them and put them up.
Officers, Plans for semester
January 27, 2001 At a party that just happened to include a whole lot of libertarians last night, we cleverly abused our constitution and elected new officers. Anthony Gregory is President, Joe Henchman is Vice President, Mason Guffey is Treasurer, Kevin Peterson is Secretary, and Serenity was not elected unofficial Social Secretary. I think I may have forgotten someone. It was a good party that way. We decided that our business meetings will be held at some time convenient for those who we expect to come, and we will try to hold several general meetings at the usual time that are actually interesting enough to draw a crowd, which means speakers or a discussion on an interesting topic.
Voucher Debate?
October 3, 2000 I'm (Kevin) trying to put together a debate on vouchers, since there are libertarians on both sides. But I need debators. I can do in favor of vouchers (though anyone with actually qualifications, step up!). I don't have anyone who is willing to argue against vouchers from a libertarian (i.e. eventual elimination of government schools) position. The one person I know has trouble making our meeting times. Anyone feel they can debate this?
Meeting Thursday, October 5th
October 3, 2000 We will be meeting Thursday to decide our positions on Prop 34 (campaign finance reform) and on the Senate race. Rajiv Batra, Tom Campbell's Berkeley Field Representative, plans on coming so that he can tell us, surprize, about what a great guy Campbell is. So we'll need lots of fanatics to come out and tell us how we shouldn't compromise on the lesser of the two evils when they still support gun control, drug prohibition, and keeping half of the federal gas tax.
Dull Meeting Thursday Sept 14
September 13, 2000 We're not promoting the meeting this week because we don't have much planned. Mark will be giving a presentation on how to sell libertarianism, then we'll talk business, planning for next meeting.
Endorsements for November
September 13, 2000 At our last meeting, we voted to endorse a bunch of libertarians, and took positions on most of the initiatives. Whether we should recommend people vote for Lightfoot, "Lightfoot or Campbell", "anyone but Feinstein" or take no position on the Senate race is still to be decided. Also to be decided is our position on prop 34, campaign finance reform, because none of us actually understand what it does.
Meet Thursdays in 183 Dwinelle
September 3, 2000 Cal Libertarians will be meeting every Thursday at 7pm in 183 Dwinelle.
Meeting Moved to Wednesday
August 28th, 2000 The meeting has been moved from Thursday to Wednesday, in order to accommodate those who would like to see Chris Hoffman speak at the BCR meeting. Place and time are unchanged: Cafe Strade, 7pm Wednesday, August 30th, 2000.
Let's Get it on!
Friday, August 25th, 2000 Our fearless leader Mark sent a message to the mailing list regarding getting things rolling, meeting times, and the holy grail of trying to get Harry Browne to come to campus.
New Website
June 8th, 2000 Today I've started redesigning the website. The old web site had been around since about 1997, which is ages in terms of the internet. It wasn't scaling well, in that I had no idea where to put new additions. Now that we know what is going to be on the website, it's easier to decide how it should be organized. It will probably require some small tweaks in the future, but I think this new format will be much easier to maintain.
Happy Summer
May 7th, 2000 Cal Libertarians will not be meeting over the summer.
