Whatever America hopes to bring to pass in the world must first come to pass in the heart of America.

 

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired, signifies in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.   

Worli  Mumbhai chawls & school kids 2002

 

Politics ought to be the part-time profession of every citizen who would protect the rights and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage.

Zero Dark 30 in the toilet  OpedNews, 1-16-2013, Dwayne Hunn
While buying a ticket to view how dark the world was becoming, the movie house manager told a half dozen anxious teenagers trying to buy a ticket to 0 Dark 30, "You need an adult with you," causing them to text someone. Were they like most of us at that invincible age, yearning to see how they too could be buffed-up, high tech heroes? Before it was too dark, would they learn there were other, smarter ways to be heroes?

Haiti Habitat Carter Build, Precursor of...   OpedNews,  12-24-2012,  Dwayne Hunn
Will a new Congress have enough vision to address world needs with a peaceful, cost effective army that helps everyone get along and live better? We need to build the ranks of Habitats, Peace Corps, CCC's, etc., to deal with the future, which is what People's Lobby's American World Service Corps Congressional Proposal does. Learn more and help make it happen.

Last minute graphic blitz that turned Ohio around   OpedNews, 11-17-2012, Dwayne Hunn

Graphically speaking, are these pictures why Ohio and other Blue States, who provide revenue to the Red States, choose to leave billionaire tv ad campaigns on the fabricated editing room floor and vote to change the enclosed pictures in the real world.  Yeph!  See why we think so.

What's MPC & MPS got to do with me?   OpedNews, 8-21-2012, Dwayne Hunn
Understanding MPC & MPS is essential to understanding "What's the Matter With Kansas"" and America. And more Americans need to know how their MPC & MPS is being manipulated, so they can fix what's wrong...  If not, middle and lower class Americans will continue to be dumbed down by faux news economic analysis.

Where are you from? What color was your sperm or ovum? Why did you get the lottery ticket that allows you to read this on the internet? What makes a Bible preaching, chest thumping American so much better than the rest of the world? Didn't many of our ancestors come here as part of the world's discarded riff-raff? "Can't we all just get along?" Does it take a village? Aren't we zygotes from the same village?

Commuting for American Priests & Ethiopian Security
OpedNews,  4-29-2012, Dwayne Hunn 

As phony & stupid wars bleed economic and human needs worldwide, Americans increasingly hear & vent about race, religion, fear, & one-upsmanship that ballyhoos America as #1, as well as morally superior. Travel that puts dirt under fingernails might help Americans see a more meaningful world and how a nation once blessed with being #1 should react in it, which implementing People's Lobby's AWSC could do.

Happy Days? Sending a battalion of plumbers...
Appreciate what you have and make it and you grow. An exceptional nation grows from expanding the special deeds making ability of its people, which then grows a more involved, smarter, and bigger middle class at home and abroad. It's just what America, and most nations need, amidst today's blabbering-media, post-bubble, trickle-down societies.

 

My best reading and thinking is often done on my bathroom throne.  

On Thanksgiving Day evening, after Ciprofloxacin had stuffed away the diarrhea, I was back to my sanitary throne after weeks of a poneering Habitat for Humanity Latrine Building Project in the overwhelming slums of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.  The filthy, hard work and wonderful people will remain etched in my memory.  But, as often happens, those poignant experiences made me wonder about the bigger picture as, like so many Americans, I looked down from my seat of power.  

Needed: Updated and worldly 21st century CCC/WPA. 

Oped News October 2011

When we were by far the strongest economy in the world, some power-that-be scared many Americans about dominoes falling.  It was an era when our enemies couldn't splurge enough to buy a dozen domino game sets.   So we wasted $698 billion (inflation adjusted), lost over 58,000 Americans, left about 2 million Vietnamese civilians and about 1.25 million Vietnamese soldiers dead -- to stop those scary dominoes from falling.

We learned so much from our Vietnam disaster, we blew $4 trillion trumping-up an Iraq War where about 300,000 Iraqis died, because our public policy knowledge had been dumbed-down to the depth of a melted popsicle stick.

    The terror war stems from ignoring festering problems for generations.  It may take generations to control this phantom war.  To eradicate the bad seeds from which it sprouted, we and other nations must better understand other cultures and peacefully address their concerns, so that crazies are unable to induce others to violent actions.

July 4th for Ron Kovic, Nadia McCaffrey, and wounded Americans     Oped News July 2, 2008 written by Dwayne Hunn posted by Rob Kall.

Born on July 4th, gung-ho Ron Kovic charged off to Vietnam. In a war hinged on falling dominoes, Kovic lost his idealized America. Often he lamented, "What more could I give, or the nation take?"

Haven't we had enough Ron Kovics, Patrick McCaffrey...? In the 21st century, we need a peaceful productive army that builds not bombs nations.  The organizations named in People's Lobby's non-partisan American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals builds that productive army that has yanks compete on the field of sane, healthy development.  Push your Congressperson to cosponsor the AWSC, so we lose fewer legs and loving hearts.

Winning Constitutional strategy for Scott Ritter... and Sun Tzu  Daily Kos, May 30, 2008.  Dwayne Hunn.  

Unfortunately, restating the Constitution does not provide anti-war activists, political parties, progressives, etc., a strategy that produces a character-rich public policy, which would only rarely include warring.

 

Winning strategy for Scott Ritter, Sun Tzu, and our Constitutional goal of promoting the general welfare, Op-Ed News.  Digg News by Dwayne Hunn

Americans are capable of building a strategy to change the character of America’s public policy to one that successfully wages peace via pushing People’s Lobby’s citizen-initiated American World Service Corps (AWSC) Congressional Proposals. For a nation founded on “We the people...” citizen-initiated legislation should become more commonplace.

The 2% Forbes solution to a well-armed Live Earth

Terrorism, poverty, climate change ravages billions. Billions of dollars and millions of peaceful, productive, heroic volunteers are needed to combat this. Even Forbes billionaires like being heroes. One of People’s Lobby’s seven financing mechanisms in its citizen-initiated congressional proposals makes billionaires heroes, by having billionaires fund the fielding of millions of American World Service Corps volunteers.

Had the World Service Corps (WSC) been up and running, tens of thousands of prepared WSC members from the Red Cross, Americorps, State Conservation Corps, etc., would much more quickly be working in Louisiana and Mississippi.

In emulating the stereotypical images of political power, in seeking personal aggrandizement through politics, do we miss the common sense programs that could make America and the world stronger, saner, and richer?

“I am the way, the truth, the life…”Christ’s way or the World Service Corps highway.  San Francisco Bay Indy News, by Dwayne Hunn, August 25, 2005.  http://www.indybay.org/news/2005/08/1762423.php

Do we talk Christ’s talk or walk his walk? If one lives the “way” Christ lived, is that the “truth” that enters one’s “life” into paradise? Wouldn’t a million Americans serving annually in the World Service Corps be living the life Christ and all religions want us to live? So let’s “nike” rather than “nuke” and “Just do it!”

In today’s global village, it is time Americans created a World Service Crops and used it to take on another big task that makes the world better.

We will not win the global struggle against extremism or the terror war mouthing brave, nice phrases. Millions of good deeds produced by teams of can-do Americans will win it. Those actions can be performed with passage of the citizen-initiated Congressional World Service Corps proposals, which needs your grassroots support.
