I hope there are enough people in the Congressional Branch that actually care about Global Heating and its effects on virtually all life on the planet, that there are enough people who care about life on earth to eschew war and its endless drain on We the People of the World by taking all of their resources and pouring it into war financing, deadlier weaponry, and destroying smaller countries that don’t subscribe to fascism and Nazism to cut this war machine off at the fuel tank and ammo factories.
*I lived through the result of this sort of planning, at Bikini Atoll in 1956. I survived, but many thousands did not. We the People have got to stop this relentless march toward destruction. As I said above, we have to assure that there are enough people in congress who will evoke our Constitutional Power to stop this madness and refuse to take the multimillion dollar bribes offered by the MICC to keep the wars and war spending going.
I Have Seen the Dragon
I have seen the Dragon
Through clenched lids and arms pressed tight.
I have felt its hot breath on my back
And listened to the rumble of its voice.
I have looked upon its breath,
Glowing Amethyst, red and purple,
Climbing towards the stratosphere
To deposit its venom downwind.
I have waited in fear as my gums began to bleed
And my hair came out in clumps.
I breathed a prayer of thanks
As I began to heal.
After fifty years, our ranks are thin,
We who have seen the Dragon and survived.
Those who have died or are sickened still,
Their numbers are legion.
All we can hope for, work for, pray for,
Is that no madman will ever be allowed
To unleash the Dragon again.
For its legacy to all is death, disease and decay.

That is a poor goal to spend every bit of our wealth on vs reviving our efforts to provide humanitarian aid and progress to ourselves and the world. Don’t elect, or re-elect any of the multi-millionaires and billionaires who have taken the bribes, and used their positions to boost war and war funding.
*We need a peaceful regime change through Constitutional electoral processes. Elect those who value long-term survival of life on this planet over growing numbers of zeros in their bank accounts. Then we need to work hard to support them against the powers and temptations of the Plutocrats who currently run this nation and rape the world for their own profit.
