I oppose the US war against the Philippine Islands. Bombing people causes the survivors to join anti US groups.

August 8, 2017

Why don’t we just let those people over there solve their own problems? We don’t need to help ISIS with their recruiting drive… DUH.

It reminds me of Endless War in George Orwell’s book 1984. We already have Endless War in Afghanistan already, why start another futile bombing crusade? It’s all just a marketing trick to help defense contractors sell useless stuff to the Pentagon. That’s why we armed ISIS in the first place. OOPS, it was an accident. Now we can bomb people in the name of Freedom. What a racket.

Today is a great time to Protest Trumpcare and Occupy your Senator’s Offices.

July 24, 2017

The Senate is planning to vote on a number of bills this week. We the People need to rise up like a tidal wave of outrage against the evil… If you CAN occupy their offices, please do so… If you CANNOT go in person, send them an email… Here is the link to find your Senator… https://www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators_cfm.cfm

How to hack a US Senator’s Contact via email form. That way you can express your opinion to Many Senators. Up to 100…

July 21, 2017

Every Senator has a form used by constituents to express their opinion… They only care about opinions from people that live in their state… Pretend to be a real voter in their state by using a valid street address. Look up a valid street address using Google Maps Street View and the USPS zip code lookup. Then when you are expressing your opinion as to how they should vote on a bill you appear to be a real voter… and you can express your opinion to up to 100 Senators…  Many of the forms check for a valid zip code and reject opinions from non voters. It’s possible to express your opinion to many Senators and Congressmen even though you don’t live in their state… or even in the USA. Simply put the little golden man on a street in the appropriate state and presto-changeo an address appears in the upper left hand corner of the screen…

Here are some subjects that I am concerned about:

1. Save Social Security and Medicare. The House of Representatives just passed a budget bill that cuts payment of these programs.

2. Either FIX Obamacare or create a Single Payer Medicare for all healthcare system. Obviously Trumpcare is horrible. Repeal and Replace is a mean idea and a total failure of the Republicrime party.

3. Legalize Marijuana nationwide, tax it and use that money to fund schools. This system has worked great in Colorado. Release all Prisoners that are incarcerated for Cannabis related crimes. That would save the taxpayers a fortune. It’s obvious that We the People want Recreational Marijuana Legalized.

4. Let’s NOT pay for the F-35 Jet Airplane. It’s something that the USA Does Not Need. It’s simply Corporate Welfare for Lockheed. Let’s reduce spending on the military in general. One way is to stop all these wars. The USA is stuck in an Orwellian “Forever War” in Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. What a total waste of lives and money. Have you seen photographs of the city called Mosul? We bombed the hell out of that city and now it’s just a pile of rubble where homes used to stand. Total Evil in the name of fighting ISIS, a group that we “accidentally” armed.

5. Let’s return the Environmental Protection Agency to an Agency that Protects the Environment. Under the failed Trump Administration it’s become an agency that enables corporations to pollute. It’s run by Scott Pruitt, a man that has sued the EPA to prevent the Agency from enforcing Environmental laws.

6. Let’s drain the swamp. Trump has appointed 193 corporate CEOs and Lobbyists to senior positions in government. This enables the 1% to get their wishes granted. Read Elizabeth Warren’s Opinion at: http://www.masslive.com/politics/index.ssf/2017/07/elizabeth_warren_gives_preside.html

7. Let’s hire thousands of computer programmers to make our systems hacker proof. There are reports that the computers at nuclear power plants have had hacking attempts made on their business systems. If those hacking attempts ever succeed there may be a massive power outage nationwide. Looting and The End of Western Civilization will follow.

8. Let’s get rid of the Electoral College. Twice it has selected a President that did not get the majority of votes. George W. Bush lost the popular vote to Al Gore and then he turned out to be a very bad quality President. Donald Trump lost the popular vote to Hillary Clinton and he also has turned out to be a bad quality President. Let’s learn from our mistakes and stop using the Electoral College.

Save Social Security and Medicare. US House of Representatives Bill proposes Drastic Cuts and Increased Defense Spending.

July 18, 2017

Now that Trumpcare has died, the House Republicrimes have started an effort to steal from the poor and give to the rich. It’s a reverse Robin Hood Bill. It includes funding for the F-35 Jet Airplane. A bomber that the USA does not need and the Pentagon does not want. Make sure you go protest at your Senators and Congressman’s offices. If you cant go there in Person, email them, call them or write them a letter.

Here is an organization that organizes protest marches… https://www.indivisibleguide.com/about-us/

The House Budget proposal cuts Medicare and Social Security and increases spending on defense. It’s Backwards, Corporate Welfare.

July 18, 2017

It is the opposite of what voters want. Republicrimes are the puppets of the Super Rich.  Please email your representative and tell them your opinion.  http://www.house.gov/representatives/find/

It’s Time to protest in the offices of the House Republicrimes

Under the House plan, defense spending would steadily increase over 10 years while nondefense discretionary spending would decline to $424 billion — 23 percent below the $554 billion the federal government is spending in that category this year.

Unlike Trump’s budget, the House proposal cuts into Medicare and Social Security — entitlement programs that the president has pledged to preserve.

32 arrested in occupyEurekaCA – Jack Nounnan

November 16, 2011

Subject: Worsening police brutality of non violent protestors.

From: Jack Nounnan <jnoun@sbcglobal.net>
To:  Press Release Nov 15, 11 for immediate release

Late report due to regrouping (See calls to make below)

Counties worsening vendetta against ‘Occupy’ Eureka

In this obvious long night before dawn of America’s awakening, cops again raided the ‘Occupy’ Eureka encampment, arresting 32 people, ganging up on one protester in maliciously beating him with batons, he bruised badly, suffering from a concussion, police tearing apart this newest Action Encampment rebuilt only 3 days ago before at a crowd on Veterans Day in honoring Scott Olsen, Iraq vet, a victim of cop brutality in Oakland’s Occupation. This was a great collective effort in also establishing an outreach center and library as part of its ongoing demonstration encampment, after the first camp had been destroyed only days earlier.

This followed on the heels of the day before cop brutality of Hans Ashbaucher, all of which have been witnessed by many and also filmed.
“Why!” But we know why and thus it need not be asked. Constant reports coming in now from across the country of raids in attempts to shut down these non violent protests by state law enforcement troops goes right on arrogantly ignoring Ist amendment rights, crushed under this regimes practices and what is becoming this sea change of American cultural, political and spiritual identity.

This raid, striking before sunup, was meant to arrest all involved and confiscate everything, end such audacity of this public protest, obviously to avoid the newly created village being seen by Monday’s work day traffic and the massive canvas depicting the Declaration Of Independence at the Courthouse entrance….framed for all to see. . .of what freedom was meant to mean in America;

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, —
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it,
and to institute new Government.”

This reminder torn down again, walked upon and shoved in a truck, discarded again!

Nothing of Eureka police intentions to ‘eliminate’ has diverted ‘Occupy’ Eureka’s purposes of refocussing on the irreparable abuses the huge majority of Americans face in the hands of the governing few.

With this renewed public participation in re-assessing
what’s long been ignored of critical degradation of human and environmental life, we most certainly have our chance!

November 17 ‘Occupy Eureka plans to march on Walmart and military recruiting centers locally, possibly starting before noon. It’s hoped other Occupy sites across the nation will join us in this beginning move to boycott and expose the terrible vices of this giant chain store corporation. Treatment of those without homes and their immediate needs will continue to be part of ‘Occupy’s deepest concerns.

Those who believe reports of this encampment, written by those who make assumptions without closer connections, while almost ignoring altogether their part of 4th estate responsibilities, it’s best to be clear. ‘Occupy’ Eureka has been a virtual ‘clinic’ for the wounded and oppressed, and faces daily serving of needs and problem solving with people this system has deemed expendable and are determined to eliminate, as certain as they are this protest movement. It’s also a high spirited sanctuary for those awake to peoples diminished chances of sustaining on earth and strongly speaking out for these crisis’ times, while facing the unforgiving practices of this systems relentless use of force toward anyone choosing to deeply question its dominance.

What does it take to live in a fish bowl, live publicly 24/7 with the merest of basic needs, facing constant attempts to destroy what little one possesses, while knowing ones work must succeed over any further compromises or ignoring whatsoever of these complex issues, which the majority of humans must embrace in demanding urgently needed changes! Will you be known for what you do or by how you look? Will you be known by your passion and vigor for telling the truth, or how you say it?

It’s time we woke to the real substance of our dilemmas on planet earth and the willingness to get on the side of sustaining life.

Remembering Gandhi’s walk to the sea in protesting the crowns taxing of salt, which lead to terrible government violent attempts to subdue and re-establish their dominant controls over the Indian people, but aired for all the world to see, of the emptiness and moral bankruptcy of their governing policies.

What a fine Peace March we had today

What I really like is the Samba Parade Band… Even on a rainy day, they are fun to dance in the streets with…

Spy on the Government... It's a felony. When they spy on you, It's a Patriot Act.
