Conflucian Cocktail Party: Fundraiser for Pine Ridge

In the song, Edmund Fitzgerald, the storm that caught the freighter off guard was called the Witch of November.  The Witch came early again this year but this time to South Dakota.  The early blizzard has buried the Pine Ridge Reservation under feet of snow and taken out power to the reservation.  Here are some details from people on the scene:

Subject: Pine Ridge Needs Help!

It is not often I send something like this out, and am sad to have to do so.
However, anything any of you can do would be great, mention it on your radio
shows and blogs, call and help or even call the state reps. and committee of
indian affairs…Here is the email I got,,,

Where is the Red Cross?  Where is FEMA?  Where is the National Guard?
The Lakota Reservation in South Dakota has been struck with a huge,
early season snow storm. Elderly people are without propane, there is
a great lack of food, medicine and warm winter clothing.

According tho the president of the Reservation, the State of South
Dakota is doing almost nothing. The roads are still not plowed and
people are dieing.

They need our help in way of wood, propane, warm winter clothing,
food and assistance with plows.

If you are in the area and have the heart to help these folks, go to
the Porcupine School or call 605-867-1111.

If you can, send money, call and get details on arrangements. If you
can send materials, as this is going to be a long winter for the sick
the elderly and the children, the address is

Republic of Lakotah
P.O. Box 99
Porucupine, SD 57772

Winters are brutal in this area, and this one is worse than they can
deal with. Any and all help will be remembered by the people for
their entire lives, and lives is what this is about.

Please, with our Holidays coming, help these people NOW while we can
still help. People are dieing right now.

Feel free to contact John for more information.

Tonight we dedicate our fundraiser to Pine Ridge to buy blankets, food, propane and other necessities for  the cold nights of November.

Welcome to the Conflucian Cocktail Party.  This is the day every week when we gather together with friends and have a bit of fun for a worthy cause.  To the left of the bar is Rico, our bartender with flair.  He’s agreed to stay on past the election because he likes us that much.  Tonght’s special cocktail is a White Witch.  You can also order Causmos for $10.00.  The button below will take you to The Confluence PayPal account for Pine Ridge.


I’d also like to call your attention to Al Franken’s Recount fund. You can buy a $10.00 Causmo and help Al get one Senate seat closer to that filibuster proof majority. Think of it. One more senator on Hillary’s side. I donated $50 this afternoon. If you donate, add .60 to your total to let him know we’re here.

Tonight’s music is from our friends NativeAmericansAgainstObama describing the unfolding events at Pine Ridge:

Ladies and gents, we run a classy joint. Those of you who can’t keep your trigger words to yourselves should leave them with Florence, our lovely checkroom attendant. The waiters will be circulating shortly with some wild rice cakes, popcorn and pumpkin bread. Please drink responsibly and tip your servers generously.

Also, join me and the other Conflucians at 10PM EST for Conflucians Say on PUMA United Radio (PURrrr).
