About Me

Ran for US Congress in 1990 from the left. Chairperson of 1989 city advisory initiative calling for 10% reduction in military spending to be divided among deficit reduction and mass transit and social services. Being a miliary town nobody thought we'd get on the balllot let alone win with 64% of the vote. Former chair of peace and justice project for a UMC congregation in Tacoma, Washington.

I was watching the protests in Egypt the other night and it struck me how passionate they were about getting a new government. It seems to me that in the US the TPTB (elected officials and large corporations, Wall Street) have us just where they want us...the vast majority of us have just enough food and shelter to stop us from getting too excited and they also have us in the position that almost all of us are 1-3 paychecks away from disaster. I don't think that at this point this country is capable of meaningful opposition to injustice or oppression. Just my humble opinion.
