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

in the final sense a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those
who are cold and are not clothed.

Zero Dark 30 in the toilet OpedNews, 1-16-2013, Dwayne Hunn
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?

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

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
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.
Threshing "tef" in Ethiopia OpedNews, 7-19-2012, Dwayne Hunn
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?

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.
The AWSC Congressional Proposal is a robust 1)Jobs 2)Learning & serving

leadership, could drive other nations to build similar peaceful,
productive service corps that would in time erase the stupid mentality
that keeps waging wars and replace it with one that learns and builds.

With 7 billion people stumbling
into a resource, climate, and economically challenged 21st century, this
updated OpEd is a relevant today as it was when an earlier version
appeared in the Marin IJ in January of 2003 calling for a different kind
of army to augment our military.

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,
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.

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.

Jesus lived as a human to show us "The Way", why don't we
emulate and support Christian actions and besmirch the hypocritical
stuff that parades as "Christian" done by humans today?
