Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! For now, I’ve returned from my Joiyssey to participate in the "revolution":I’ve been at many Occupy sites across the country:1st in D.C. Freedom Plaza I faced & challenged racism/white supremacy, sexism/patriarchy, classism, heterosexism & eventually was kicked off the island; then I offered workshops as I drove to CA:“Anti-Racism Geared for White Occupiers”; “NO DRONES” "Successes and Pitfalls of OWS"

Justice is NOT a lady...

The Justice Party is starting totally off on the wrong foot. Yet another predominantly white male's party. And misogynist white male (if that is not simply understood) at that.

Their symbol is of "Lady Justice".

Justice is NOT a lady!

She is not polite, wobbles on heels, nor crosses her legs or paints her eyelids blue.

Justice is a fierce, kick-ass, passionate and compassionate, powerful, bold Amazon

Justice squelches greed, fractures wealth, demolishes power as defined by rich white men

Justice fiercely, boldly protects all life as she heals

Justice holds accountable those responsible for the deep wounds of injustice.

Is it "stress"??? ptsd???

Another 'new' study came out today showing that the men that pilot drones are likely to experience more 'stress' then ever.

I HATE this defining and using of "stress" or "post traumatic stress disorder" as the soldier's response to witnessing let alone committing violence against human beings.

It is NOT "stress", it is the minimal appropriate response from those soldiers who still have at least some of their humanity.

If their reaction is acceptably defined as "stress", then the solution is geared toward managing stress: the sauna, the therapy, the change of scenery.

If their reaction is defined as a result of a deep attack on humanity, then the attack has to be ended and eliminated.
