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 steaming 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

Texas Tile

            I LOVE the Texas rest stop bathrooms: they are full of beautiful tile – no fuckin thick ugly plastic walls that have dominated bathrooms at rest stops, libraries, and even the ymca’ since I hit Missouri. How can people think plastic walls and doors making up the cubicles are in any way ok?
            But Texas bathrooms have beautiful tile. I stopped last nite at a new rest stop on a new highway I 69 heading from Corpus Cristi area south to Brownsville – also a new highway almost all complete.
            These were in the womyn’s bathrooms!!!

In the entry way

around the corner

This one whole wall in the womyn's room:

This is another whole wall in the other womyn's room!

SpaceX - fuckin really???

I'm afraid to ask at the library information desk what the hell is "SpaceX"? The front glass entrance doors have big "SpaceX" posters hanging there, announcing street closures due to SpaceX exploratory work. Someone is testing SpaceX and so there will be three days of disruption.

I'm immediately suspicious. So I google SpaceX and find out it appears to be some kind of NASA-like but private space exploration corporation. Their home page says they manufacture and launch "advanced rockets"...(does this mean weapons) and spacecraft. I can't see any evidence that they are weaponized but their site is not that informative.

It also says they want to "enable people to live on other planets".

Like we haven't done a good enuff job fuckin up this one.

Then I scroll over to their "products" page and see they are selling a t-shirt that fuckin says "NUKE Mars". Really? Fuckin REALLY?

Nuke Mars - then with a green and blue earth planet patch next to the Mars.

Looking farther you can also choose an "Occupy Mars" t-shirt I guess you'll need after you nuke the planet, then you can occupy it.
