      Dwayne Hunn

      Mill Valley, CA

People's Lobby's citizen-initiated proposed law will produce a robust, peaceful, productive national service program that will create smarts, security, jobs, and a growing middle class.   The AWSC proposed bill is at http://www.worldservicecorps.us/world%20service%20key%20proposal%202yr%20volunteer.htm

Without money, People's Lobby (PLI) needs citizen pressure to attract strong original sponsors to introduce the AWSC Congressional Proposals.  PLI then needs your continued citizen support to add a hundred cosponsors and pass the legislation.

This NEW INTERACTIVE letter to Congressional reps that offers citizens the opportunity to press your representative to sponsor the AWSC Congressional Proposals that will create jobs, expand common sense, and strengthen public policies from the grassroots on up.  To sign the petition, click the "Take Action" or "Sign" button to the right under Uncle Sammy. 

Numerous congressional staffs support People's Lobby's American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals (AWSC) and it's Fair Tax Bracket Reinstitution Act (FTBRA).  Their recent reasons for inaction are expressed as, "We can't move anything through this Congress.  Nothing gets done, as hard as we try...." 

Please also sign our intial petiton at http://www.worldservicecorps.us/petition/default.asp

      OpEdNews Article: Article: Peace Corps, Bin Laden, JFK, Sarge... chasing hearts & minds?

      JFK pushed to send Peace Corps more than Marine Corps. Instead, a wartime mentality won the day. Again, in 2014 there is a little push to expand the Peace Corps. Isn't it time to make the Peace Corps and other do-good organizations REALLY BIG?

      We fall into wasteful wars because too few citizens understand domestic and world needs. Our most indelible educations come from first hand experiences. Moving Americans from bumper sticker analysis into meaningful world service does more than screeching complaints about the State of the World.

      Had we built the AWSC umbrella decades ago, the Mideast and other problems would be much more manageable.

      OpEdNews Article: Education for the long run - Raising our public policy IQ for generations to come

      Do we walk enough in troubled neighbors' shoes? Taste the experiences of the unemployed, poorly schooled, homeless, refugeed? We elect public policy doers who impact such experiences. Until MANY, MANY more walk miles in others' shoes, our public policies will not be as good as they should.

      Empathy Kills

      Can Christ help win the terror wars? Can citizens initiate the law that fields a big band of apostles that uses Christ's teaching to win the wars? Has a nation of doers become too pathetic to wage an empathetic war that defeats terror? Do political or religious leaders even care?

    10. California Nurses Association, Habitat, AWSC & pot-lucking power-pointing

      Dwayne Hunn
      Petition Organizer

      This past weekend People's Lobby had a potluck PowerPoint presentation focusing on its Carter Haiti Habitat Build 2012, which was largely sponsored by the California Nurses Association, who were in attendance. Peace Corps work and other Habitat Builds were also shown and discussed with valuable information offered by the Habitat Staffer in attendance.
      Passing the American World Service Corps Congressional Proposal could dramatically increase the good work Habitat is doing, as well as expand the training base for nurses.
      The California Nurses Associatio is preparing to be attacked by the Koch Brothers. Soon you should expect to see ads praising the placement of pseudo computerized medical clinics in Walmarts and drugstores while downplaying the need for "overpaid" nurses. Who needs nurses on earth when Elysium is out there for the future Koch inheritees and friends.
      Please try to get some friends to sign this AWSC petition. Thanks.

    14. Put Americans to work doing service at home & abroad - and pay them.

      Dwayne Hunn
      Petition Organizer

      Reminds us of needs. The 2010 UN Food & Agriculture Organization estimate, the most recent, says that 925 million people were undernourished in 2010 (FAO 2010). As the figure below shows, the number of hungry people has increased since 1995-97.. The increase has been due to three factors: 1) neglect of agriculture relevant to very poor people by governments and international agencies; 2) the current worldwide economic crisis, and 3) the significant increase of food prices in the last several years which has been devastating to those with only a few dollars a day to spend. 925 million people is 13.6 percent of the estimated world population of 6.8 billion. Nearly all of the undernourished are in developing countries.“
      Will your Congressional candidate push the American World Service Corps (AWSC) Congressional Proposal to reduce needs & wars by building the right army? Putting teams of a million Americans a year into action for a generation is much more productive and economical fo

      Dwayne Hunn
      Petition Organizer

      As PLI's advisor and founder of Walden House Walter Littrel said the other day, the answer to most of our needs lies in livng so as to: 1) Do no harm. 2. Be of service.
      If we had 1 million Americans per year living those principles, the world would be safer, more prosperous, more informed, and less vengeful. Please ask your friends and family to sign in support of PLI's American World Service Corps Congressional Proposal and PLI's Fair Tax Bracket Reinstatement Congressional Proposal.

    16. Doing more nation warring is not the answer. This is...

      Dwayne Hunn
      Petition Organizer

      The10 year Afghanistan War lingers because for generations we have built only robust military corps, not the AWSC that the world needs as exemplified by the Peace Corps, which the American World Service Corps (AWSC) Congressional Proposal would dramatically expand.
      Only from 1962-1979 did 1,739 Peace Corps volunteers serve in Afghanistan, one of the world’s poorest nations. Consequently, goofy terrorists trained, plotted, & grew there.
      Incentivizing a substantial number of Americans into peaceful, productive service is one of the truest means to strengthen individual American’s knowledge, character, understanding, & skill, which will raise America’s public policy IQ. By quickly building a peaceful, productive domestic and international army of a million AWSC paid volunteers serving through existing do-good organizations, we raise both America and the world’s public policy IQ. Raising that IQ makes life easier for our warriors as well as for the poor and needy.

      I want our country to become a great nation, filled with middle class citizens with time to help their families and neighbors, that have compassion for those who suffer, and who do not seek violent solutions to human problems. People who care about other people regardless of the size of their bank account.
