What I Want to Do:


 
"A PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS"
    "The politics we most need right now is the "politics of community." In that birthing process, a prophetic spriritual network--across the lines of race, class, gender, and region--can act as the midwife of new possibilities." (Jim Wallis (1948-) The Soul of Politics: A Practical and Prophetic Vision for Change, 3, 1994)

"There was once a town in the heart of America where all life seemed to live in harmony with its surroundings...
    Then a strange blight crept over the area and everything began to change.  Some evil spell had settled on the community: mysterious maladies swept the flocks of chickens; the cattle and sheep sickened and died.  Everywhere was a shadow of death.  The farmer spoke of much illness among their families...There had been several sudden and unexplained deaths, not only among adults but even among children, who would be stricken suddenly while at play and die within a few hours.
    There was a strange stillness.  The birds, for example--where had they gone?...It was a spring without voices...
    No witchcraft, no enemy action had silenced the rebirth of new life in this stricken world.  The people had done it themselves."  (Rachel Carson(1907-1964) On the effect of chemical pesticides and fertilizers, and radiation; Silent Spring, 2 1962)

"Why should there not be a patient confidence in the ultimate justice of the people?  Is there any better, or equal hope?" (Abraham Lincoln, (1809-1865). The First Inaugural Address, 4 March 1861)

Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy "The belief that we some day shall be able to prevent war is to me one with the belief in the possibility of making humanity REALLY human." (Ellen Key (1849-1926, in "Preface to War, Peace, and the Future" published 1916...
What Gives Me Hope "Ideas won't go to jail. In the long run of history, the censor and the inquisitor have always lost. The only weapon against bad ideas is better ideas." (A. Whitney Griswold (1906-1963) in: "A Little Learning", Atlantic Monthly, November 1962..
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Abolish nuclear weapons, and all things nuclear, FOREVER! JUST STOP. Create a Secretary of Peace (cabinet position) like Dennis Kucinich campaigned for..make a fair tax system, where the rich corporation cannot get exorbitant tax breaks for doing nothing but leaving a toxic and socially unjustifiable footprint on society and the world..reign them in ..give Veterans their healthcare and benefits, dismantle the HMO system..turn medicine back to not-for-profit, instead of a publicly traded commodity..a nightmare for healthcare, and costs $360 BILLION a year just to run it this way..all schools would be the same, no matter where the neighborhood...education would be the place Americans could be on an equal playing field...have a holiday called National Women's and Grandmother's Day"...bring back public access to media..oh, just fair things like that..ha ha...

Quotation "A fair day's wages for a fair day's work": it is as just a demand as governed men ever made of governing. It is the everlasting RIGHT of man." ((Thomas Carlyle; 1795-1881) is one of my favorites, otherwise the greedmonger will pay slave's wages, for without the ability to live, humans seem to lose their dignity, and they get tired, and all starts falling apart...
