Instill World Peace

May our strategy as a nation be to use nonviolent means to solve all conditions of humanity AND to deescalate ALL military efforts.

War brings more war!

War is terrorism with a bigger budget

We must IMPROVE our own country WITHOUT destroying other nations:

Prison reform, Capital Punishment, "Cruel &/or unusual punishment" / torture, Black Lives Matter, Me Too, The Border Wall, Immigration (4 1/2 % of the world's population is in the U.S. Certainly we must help others up!),

Nuclear arms can never be construed as useful! The only use to date of Nuclear bombs has destroyed the civilian populations of two cities - Hiroshima and Nagasaki! Killing civilians is against the tenants of warfare yet the United States is the ONLY country to have propigated this tragedy AND it was not even necessary!!!!

Joining organizations such as Indivisible, Raging Grannies, WILPF &VFP as well as worshipping Our God & having positive thoughts with love as the basis for solving all problems is the basis for progress. Pick you passion - make it happen!

A World Peace Movement | Making Best Friends

The 99% will be heard. The Critical Mass is developing. Regardless of Race, Creed, Sexual Identity, Age or ethnicity we are coming together!




We need to expand basic needs for every individual in our world - air, wather, food, shelter, health care, and pursuit of happiness(quality family life, education, careers) in a safe environment. THE GOAL!

Alyson Ball's Presentation - "Immigration - The Basics" may be seen as presented before an audience - prerecorded: "Immigrations - The Basics" mirroring Ms. Ball's presentation

An excerpt from Veterans For Peace Chapter #13 follows. Note the slide at the end of the clip that shows paths to citizenchip vs. visitation plans for people entering the U.S. legally. "It is something to keep an eye on for how it changes - . . ." Alyson Ball

An excerpt from a Veterans For Peace Chapter 13 meeting

In 1976 the bicentenial celebration included the musical 1776. We acknowledge the evil of slavery - Watch it now!

Another documentary - Doctrine of Discovery will show slavery from a different perspective - that of the Indiginous American people.

Previewing the screening of "TRACES OF THE TRADE - A STORY FROM DEEP NORTH", everyone's complicity is demonstrated. From the Northern Industry transporting slaves to the Episcopalian Church investing in ships transporting slaves, slave owners were not totally responsible for slavery. Referring to the Slave traders - "They knew it wasn't right - new it was evil but they did it anyway". The argument went out, "we didn't start it!" to which an African man replied:

1) "Slavery has always been since the earliest of times." and

2) "The wealthy people participated in it."

Also it was noted of the slavery period enjoyed by U.S. people, "Suffering was out of sight - out of mind. People weren't getting paid what they were worth."

This is eirely familiar - Syria - refugees - "out of sight - out of mind" ??????

Traces of the Trade (this link is a 4 minute UTube excerpt) will be shown at the YWCA in Tucson on Wednesday February 20, 2019 at the Bonita YWCA. The doors will open at 5:30 and the movie will start at 6p.m. Jim Perry, one of the members of the family tracing his ancestry of the DeWolf Family - The slave trade bringing over 10,000 africans to the United States - will be present to facilitate questions. This is the 10th year after introducing this documentary at this very location!

"I want to run out into the desert and scream." exclaimed one screener of this movie. When we realize White Privalege makes us all(whites) complicit in Blacks being incarcerated at rates not related to justice in any sence. Some (blacks) are noted to want Reparations, others Reconciliation, others Repair, others apologies and then there is the voice of opposition - those who fear the horror of the injustice done to people of a color different from white, to those who do not obtain a life sustaining income for themselves and their families through no fault of their own other than

1) they haven't worked their way up and

2) they are different from the controlling races color

Nonviolent lifestyles will instill world peace. The recently deceased Peace Activist, Daniel Berrigan who died 04/30/2016 shortly before his 95th birthday said, "I do not believe in heros, I believe in community!" Extending one of Daniel Berrigan's poems, may each of us "stand up" multiple times - may we press on always. Each of us can extend his / her own life styles to pursue global peace through nonviolent practices between nations.

Nonviolent Lifestyles = A more Peaceful World

Providing clean air, clean water, food, shelter, clothing, health care, and education for people of ANY religion(or not), nation, race, age, and sexual orientation. Instill world peace through nonviolent lifestyles for all human beings. Join with me and so many others with similar dispositions. The "Critical Mass" is coming. JOIN US!

Veterans For Peace- We, as military veterans, do hereby affirm our greater responsibility to serve the cause of world peace. To this end we will work, with others both nationally and internationally
1. To increase public awareness of the causes and costs of war
2. To restrain our governments from intervening, overtly and covertly, in the internal affairs of other nations
3. To end the arms race and to reduce and eventually eliminate nuclear weapons
4. To seek justice for veterans and victims of war
5. To abolish war as an instrument of national policy.
To achieve these goals, members of Veterans For Peace pledge to use non-violent means and to maintain an organization that is both democratic and open with the understanding that all members are trusted to act in the best interests of the group for the larger purpose of world peace.

The Green Party The four KEY areas of our Party.


In Pima County, Arizona we have chosen two projects for 2019

To stop the Rosemont Copper mine plans from being executed. The aquafer is being toyed with. Water in Arizona has been poluted over the decades and plans need to be made and completed to reverse NOT CONTINUE this devistation.

To Make Tucson the first Sanctuary City in Arizona that will provide a blue print to copy this plan throughout Arizona. If you live in Tucson, we need your signature to put it on the ballot to be approved by the people.

I'd love to hear from you!


Love Forever With Each Passing Day's Ongoing Progression In Our Higher Power.

With the 2003 War Powers Resolution, U.S. Presidents regardless of Party have used unprecidented powers to create war scenarios including targeted assination with and without drones. Amy Goodman in Democracy Now "show" today had Jeremy Scahill of the Intercept relay that President Trump has "gone after" 4 or more times the number of Whistle Blowers than President Obama did in his entire two terms! The following precedes my "regular" important grass root's beliefs and activities I hope will be important to you.

The first Amendment to our Constitution is virtually at stake. President Trump is ready to declare a National Emergency. Is it for "the Wall"? The effect will be to continue giving extra-ordinary powers to the Presidency where even this website could get me arrested! This simply should not be. It is against the United States I have been raised in.

What we need to do:

1) Repeal the War Powers Resolution passed in 2003 allowing U.S. Presidents to carry out "limited" warfare without congressional consent. Having any President able to call a Nuclear Strike is not within reason. The President calling a "National Emergency" without due process and conclusive varifiable proof of the need should not be possible.

2) Support Whistleblowers; Luiz Ina'cio Lula da Silva, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, Reality Winter, & Daniel Hale. Demand their immediate release from prison.

3) Support Black, Indiginous & People of Color on their terms such as actions by Luiz Ina'cio Lula da Silva in Brazil for Afro-Brazilian and Indiginous peoples before being arrested as a political prisoner!

4) Support gun reform laws that will keep massacres like Columbine from happening: eliminate machine gun type weapons (including "bump stocks" from civilian use, have closer registration laws keeping known criminals from obtaining fire arems, prohibiting multiple magizines to be owned AND most importantly, know your neighbor and out of love strive to keep everyone sane if not happy.

5) Reform our Prison systems by eliminating for profit prisons and using a German model to reabilitate the incarcerated. Also, recognizing there is a disproportionate number ot Black people in prison than any other race in the United States, it is a fault of our system rather than the individual in many instances. Revising our prison system so a cheap method to provide public services is not the motivation nor is using incarceration as a means to keep people from voting. Being one of the largest per capita jailing countries again points to injustice to Blacks. Historically atrocities to Blacks, Indiginous and other People of Color have carried over to this very day.

Why we need to do it:

Calling a "National Emergency" can and most likely in this present environment WILL cause further undermining and restrictions of U.S. Citizens that may even make a citizen's web page like mine up for "criminal" charges and arrest! I fear "1984" is really happening here in 2019! Jeremy Scahill quoted Eugene Debs from a speech given in Ohio in 1917. While in World War I, Eugene retored "The working class who fight all the battles, the working class who made [are making] the supreme sacrifices, the working class who freely shed their blood and furnished their copses have never yet had a voice in either declaring war or making peace."[until now] Eugene Debs was soon after arrested and tried under the "War Powers Act" and subsequently jailed. We cannot allow the Press, no less, down to whistleblowerss and yes even to the extent of having this web page declared "treasonous". Things happen in degrees. It is said a lobster put into a cold pot of water doesn't know it's being cooked until it is dead.

The people listed above as Whistleblowers are not guilty of espionage. They have dutifully served their country in the ultimate sense as citizens of the world if not the U.S. showing true facts that we the people - the 99% - deserve to know in a Republic where the killings and injustice perpetrated are done in our, the citizens of the United States, name. Methods used by the current administration are those used by the Nazi Germans & Astrians
