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

Who will allow Obama to take us into another war?



The Senate is NOT slam dunk, Obama & Kerry do NOT go forward with war, until we the people allow it to be slam dunk, allow another war.

 I’m so sick of we the people sheepishly emulating our government and pointing the finger at someone else, outside ourselves.

Where the fuck are we the people?

·         We need to be at our senators' and congresspeoples’ homes this weekend, and at their offices first thing Tuesday morning

·         We need to be setting up phone booths on the streets and having people who will not take the time to go to their offices, make calls to those senators & sign petitions.

·         We need to be going to college & high school campuses, parks, coffee houses, door-to-door to EDUCATE, AGITATE, ORGANIZE

·         We need to be flyering wherever we go, setting up ironing boards, being visible in the streets

·         We need to have one simple message: We will NOT tolerate another invasion of any other country!~!

·         And we need to be pounding our message into every available media at our disposal!

If people living under a monarchy can influence their government to NOT attack Syria, then how much easier should it be for those of us that live in a democracy to influence our government?

But no, we love to sit back while the majority of our energy, focus, and work goes into maintaining our everyday "life as usual" as we point our fingers to others instead of snatching our responsibility like a loud speaker and drumming our voices into our representatives’ ears – including Obama – as well as the press.

TAKE TO THE STREETS! EDUCATE, AGITATE, ORGANIZE!

It is up to us, and us only. We can do it!
