Work 4 Peace,Hold All Life Sacred,Eliminate Violence! I am on my mobile version of the door-to-door, going town-to-town holding readings/gatherings/discussions of my book "But What Can I Do?" This is my often neglected blog mostly about my travels since 9/11 as I engage in dialogue and actions. 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 we want all to thrive in

Kicked off FB..

I'm heading to Houlton where tomorrow they are having a Peace Vigil by the "Peace Pole". I've been trying to schedule a reading there with a coffee shop and with the UU people as well.

The UU people haven't returned my email or call but Jim, the owner of the cafe, has sent me a facebook message saying he's never hosted a reading there but he's open to doing it! I attempt to message him back and find out I've been axed from facebook for 24 hours!

UFB. I've expected to get censored because of my posts where I express my opinion that there is a difference between sex and gender: that sex is female and male, and that gender are the roles and conditions a patriarchal, racist, misogynist society places on sex. I believe womyn have yonis and men have penises.

This belief is deemed "transphobic" by the transdomination peeps, therefore grounds to silence me on facebook.

But that hasn't happened.

What did happen is that I (again) posted the truth about white male violence: I posted that 154 mass murders have been committed this year alone since January 2018. Not one of these murders was committed by a womon, nor have any of these murders been committed by a Black or brown man - but all have been committed by white men. White men are the MOST violent people in our country.

And I was cut off fb for pointing out this truth, saying my post was against the fb community! Weeeellll we know who is making up that 'community'!

Anyway, I was unable to respond to Jim who told me he'd be in his cafe until 2:30pm. I wanted to flyer some places in Bangor for my reading scheduled for the 17th so I knew I wasn't going to be able to make it to Houlton in time to meet him - but I couldn't tell him so because no facebook!

Plus I'm unable to make or receive neither phone calls nor texts. My mobile data rarely works to allow me internet access but the rest stops here in Maine have wifi which does allow me to get internet!

I do post and hand out a few flyers around Bangor before heading out for Houlton and cross fingers, folks - especially white folks - will show up! We'll see!
