Petition Closed

[03/20/11 UPDATE: The petition "Letter" is not identical to the "Overview". To find the HIDDEN LETTER BUTTON, click on READ MORE and scroll down to bottom left. Unfortunately the new system does not seem to recognize the clever links I embedded . . . don't remember where they used to go. All I can tell you is that they were "POINTED". lol!]

ECONOMIC THERAPY 101, PETITION SYNOPSIS:     
Economic Health Depends on the Elimination of Non-Necessities, Like War Spending and Usury and other destructive power struggles.      Invest in SUSTAINABLE, PRACTICAL, COOPERATIVE, CONSTRUCTIVE SOLUTIONS instead.    Common sense: INVEST IN LIFE NOT DEATH.  


I do not give USA Inc or its military my permission/mandate to use my tax moneys for war spending. --- Taxation without representation is about as anti-American as one can get.   Don't BS me that it is for my "security" and "freedom".   I do not "buy" that load of ¸.•*BLEEP*•.´¨ .   
WAR AND MILITARY SPENDING DIMINISH SECURITY because they rob economies of vital necessities, destroy environments thereby diminishing the possibilities of the Earth and Nature to sustain LIFE, and open the doors wide to graft and corruption ... in essence, WAR IS THE BU$INE$$ OF MURDER FOR PROFIT$ going to the "deep pockets" of a relatively few warlords and financiers - and these days it is AT THE EXPENSE OF THE ENTIRE PLANET,  AT_THE_EXPENSE_OF_THE_ENTIRE_BIOSPHERE_UPON_WHICH_WE_ALL_DEPEND
It is time for an honest Environmental Impact Study of the effects of War.  

(Of course, if "our" emperors had any common sense this would not be necessary since so much of the environmental devastation caused by war is so obvious.)

When our culture overcomes its infantile "me me me" attitude and takes responsibility for its ways of living, THEN WE will make progress because WE will be clearheaded enough to understand what the PRIORITIES of  SURVIVAL/REPAIR_OF_OUR_BIOSPHERE  are --- and war is not one of them. 

NOTE:    This description is NOT IDENTICAL to the petition below, which was my usual practice in the past.  However, ch.o has now made it possible for us to see petitions after we have signed them so this is no longer necessary for me.  

NOTE:    ch.o does not even have an "END WAR" cause or anything similar anymore!
hmmmmm ... so where do I post this?  War effects ALL causes negatively!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

DISTRACTIONS DISTRACTIONS DISTRACTIONS .... WEAPONS OF MASS DISTRACTIONS bleeding off our energies ... so many distractions that most people will not even begin to be able to read this little "dissertation" even if they have time. 
(I challenge you to read the whole petition itself - don't allow yourself to be dumbed down. In fact, it would be a very good idea to read the whole thing before signing to be sure I am not putting words in your mouth that you do not agree with.)  

Yes, human rights for all is an incredibly important issue --- but without an end to war and usury, these rights will not be forthcoming --- esp seeing that USA Inc is so "reticent" to sign ANY DECLARATION_OF_UNIVERSAL_HUMAN_RIGHTS   
or any other CONTRACTS obligating USA Inc to respect basic human rights (c.f. - Noam Chomsky's studies of USA Inc's appalling record) ...
However, in this particular case, 
((  in reference to  The_Fight_Isn't_Over_Tell_Holder_Don't_Defend_DADT * )) 
IMO,  LGBT people who are discharged from the Military are better off and could make far greater contributions to REAL security by engaging in other fields such as changing our food system, implementing alternative energy sources, reforestation, etcEtcETC ... almost ANYTHING they choose to do will contribute more to "National Security" than "BUYING" into the supposed "need" for WAR and DEFENSE in order to achieve "security" in the face of imaginary enemies. 

I think the Military is being astoundingly silly and extremely impractical to be discharging loyal minions just because they have different sexual preferences from that which the fundamentalist extremists of different sorts so militantly (and sometimes barbarically) declare as the only ones deemed socially acceptable.
So much nonsense these days, LITERAL NONSENSE.

I agree, if you still want to go to war and are LGBT, the military ought to WELCOME you not kick you out! ... such nonsense these days does not lend credibility to either "our" GOVT nor to "our" Military.  But then neither does war nor does economic disaster etcEtcETC.  
I support the rights of LGBTs as expressed in this petition:
* http://www.change.org/human_rights_campaign/petitions/view/the_fight_isnt_over_tell_holder_dont_defend_dont_ask_dont_tell

Food for thought about priorities: 
How can "our" Attorney General focus on big human rights issues like war crimes and "rendition" when bombarded by DISTRACTIONS about not being allowed in the Military "club"?

Thank you for your time, patience and sincere ATTENTION to these staggeringly serious matters.

"When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men, they create for themselves in the course of time a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it."
~Frederic Bastiat - 'THE LAW' (1850) ...

WAR AND MILITARY SPENDING DIMINISH SECURITY because they rob economies of vital necessities, destroy environments thereby diminishing the possibilities of the Earth and Nature to sustain LIFE, and open the doors wide to graft and corruption ... in essence, WAR IS THE BU$INE$$ OF MURDER FOR PROFIT$ going to the "deep pockets" of a relatively few warlords and financiers - and these days it is AT THE EXPENSE OF THE ENTIRE PLANET, AT_THE_EXPENSE_OF_THE_ENTIRE_BIOSPHERE_UPON_WHICH_WE_ALL_DEPEND .
It is time for an honest Environmental Impact Study of the effects of War.

We all need to grow up and stop arguing about nonsense and, instead, coordinate efforts and brains to apply all this energy towards solving the real problems we have created for ourselves ...
LIKE, who is going to clean up all the WAR MESSES?, including nuclear wastes and chemical wastes, other toxic wastes and "collateral damages"? ... and what about the messes created by the misguided "War on Drugs"? (DemocracyNow 9/23/10) ... While over-arching all is the UN-SPEAK-ABLE Class War that is being waged by the super rich against everyone and everything else.
LIKE, how are we going to move our food production/distribution close enuf to "home" before our food production/distribution system collapses as a result of the current mismanagement of resources by Big Ag and Monsanto Monsters, facilitated by Govt as well as our own misguided eating habits?
Since we have no money, these are problems which, at the moment, only the super rich can fix - but, based on their actions thus far, they don't seem to give a damn in spite of the fact that these problems will ultimately kick them in the butt too.

And where is anyone in the world besides the super rich going to get the money and resources to be able to clean up these messes and implement solutions if we continue to dump it into things like disturbing our quiet mountain communities in Southern CO and Northern NM for 3 hours every night, Mondays thru Fridays, with HIGH NOISE POLLUTION training fly-overs suggested in the US Air Force's Low Altitude Tactical Navigation Area Proposition, uh, 'scuze me, PROPOSAL.
CV-22 Ospreys and C-130 Tankers overhead in the Dark --- not exactly a good way to create a sense of security, not to mention the CO$T, which in itself is enuf to cause a fresh epidemic of insomnia due to FINANCIAL INSECURITY, which in turn causes mental and physical health "challenges" across the board.
I mean, is this 'War as Security' view some kinda joke? or are our so-called "leaders" just outrageously irrational?

WE are PAYING for the creation of the messes, but "our" corporate-representative GOVT cannot seem to allocate anywhere near sufficient percentages of our tax moneys to clean them up ... and so we have a "Health Care Crisis" and Cancer epidemics etcEtcETC ...
Usury and War and Poverty and Pollution and Corporate Processed GMO Foods are the biggest health and economic risks we face today.
WAR DOES NOT CONTRIBUTE TO ANY LIFE NECESSITIES FOR TRUE HEALTH & SECURITY, quite the opposite, it destroys them.

War is a Necessity for Security???? ... buncha ¸.•*BLEEP*•.´¨ ...
"Necessity is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves."
WE are ALL "slaves" of LIFE by "destiny".
War is the most useless class of barbarity ever indulged in by any of Life's "slaves".
The Laws of Life Supersede the laws of Man and Life is the HIGHEST "Master" in the Security Equation of physical manifestation.

With the money, energy and resources we have dumped down the "black hole" of war and destruction, we could have possibly had as much as half the entire nation or more already operating on an alternative sustainable energy grid for electricity --- and/or cranked out enuf electric cars to make a serious dent in our excess spending on gasoline, to say nothing of the boost to the economy a surge of new opportunities would bring.

With the money, energy and resources we have dumped down the "black hole" of Bank Bailouts and Foreclosures and Interest and Insurance and "pork barrel" GOVT spending, we could have solved many of the problems which threaten everything WE have, including Life - everything that is STILL being sucked up by these parasites --- and/or we could have eradicated poverty across the nation, as well as completely avoided a financial crisis, which would have also greatly diminished if not avoided the "Health Care Crisis" entirely as well.

I do not give USA Inc or its military my permission/mandate to use my tax moneys for war spending. --- Taxation without representation is about as anti-American as one can get. Don't BS me that it is for my "security" and "freedom". I do not "buy" that load of ¸.•*BLEEP*•.´¨ .

When our culture overcomes its infantile "me me me" attitude and takes responsibility for its ways of living, THEN WE will make progress because WE will be clearheaded enough to understand what the PRIORITIES of SURVIVAL/REPAIR_OF_OUR_BIOSPHERE are --- and war is not one of them.
