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

Do you want an ocean?

Did U.S. Americans stymie or at least reduce our oil consumption since 9/11 and the subsequent launch to invasions?

Do the math. How many fewer miles have you driven this year than last year, then the year before, going back 9 years?

How many less plastic bags are you now using? How much plastic have you refused to purchase?

How many petroleum-based products including toiletries, cleaning products, etc., have you refused to buy?

If war, torture, rape, destruction of other people's countries and the U.S. soldiers who are the perpetrators of violence hasn't dissuaded you from participating in our oil gluttonry, how about saving the ocean?

What oil products are you willing to forego in order to have an ocean???

People: what are you thinking? Even the ocean is expendable as long as we have our houses, our jobs, our careers, our 2.5 kids, our schools? Don't look around for the poorest of this nation. I'm talking US.

Is this the thing that will inspire YOU out onto the streets saying NO to oil, to the attacks on life especially humans, to the destruction of our mother earth???
