Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels across country in my mobile billboard truck as I attempt to engage in dialogue with people in hopes to wake us up and inspire action to change our country and communities and selves. And it is froth with my opinions, insights, analyses toward that end of holding all life sacred, dismantling the empire and eliminating violence while creating the society and life we want

Open Letter to My Senators

An Open Letter to Senators Feinstein and Boxer, and all other Senators too:

PLEASE vote NO on the pending War Supplemental.

We worked so hard for the past 8 years to defeat the Republicans, to get Democrats elected.

We did NOT work so hard to get Democrats elected so they can act like Republicans and continue to fund and escalate WAR.

Obama PROMISED, if elected, he would not ask for any additional war supplementals. This Supplemental is ON TOP of the hundreds of billions already allocated for war and occupation this fiscal year.

Less than 6% of this $96 BILLION of our tax dollars is going to civilian aide in Afghanistan. ZERO is going for civilian aide in the U.S.

We are counting on you. You have voted against war funding several times in the past.

We deeply urge you, we demand, we BEG you with every compassionate, peaceful, meaningful, life-protecting energy of our beings, VOTE NO!

Thank you,

Your constituent,

Xan (Zanne) Sam Joi
