Islam IS NOT The New Black. Assault Rifles Should Not Be a "Right."

100 people were shot and 50 people died in Orlando, Florida yesterday at a gay nightclub. Update: we learned today that the shooter was gay himself. This puts the story below into a deeper meaning. Coupled with mental health issues, the shooter's culture and religion contributed to his self loathing and contempt. 

Would you rather 3 dead children
or 20 dead children and 6 teachers?
I heard the Presumptive Democratic Nominee talking about her plan to address  "Individualized Islamic Terrorism."  This isn't about Islam. It is about homophobia and the availability of assault rifles.  The killer was born in America and raised on right-wing anti-gay Christian propaganda. Let me point out that the killer douchebag's father said his son didn't like seeing two men kiss. This mass murder is about homophobia. 

Therefore, We should be talking about the right-wing efforts of fake Christian leaders who spread fear by writing laws targeting transgendered and gay persons. This attack was by a guy who hates gays. 

Why can't BOTH be brave? 
This meme is an example of verbal contempt against gays.
The writer is "OK" with letting gays getting married, but
total freedom? Outrageous and disrespectful.
Florida Bishop Robert Lynch in the Washington Post said "sadly it is religion, including our own, that targets, mostly verbally, and often breeds contempt for gays...these verbal attacks on LGBT men and women often plant the seed of contempt, then hatred, which can ultimately lead to violence."

Islam IS NOT The New Black.

This Just In: 3,000 years ago,
men cannot shave their faces
Religious teachings from 3,000 years ago are at the root of most homophobic behavior and beliefs. Though all religions teach love and compassion, zealous leaders gain power by using ancient cultural references out of context. They promote fear and judgement over love, mercy, compassion and generosity. These pastors, leaders, teachers and politicians are serving themselves for money, votes and power. For example, America has become obsessed about bathrooms. They are afraid of trans-gendered people which is just another version of homophobia.

Just put your name here and
you should hear back from us
in about 200 years or so
This next sentence may be hard to hear, but We must accept the fact that ASSAULT RIFLES are actually designed for killing people. They are not for hunting and getting your Elk this year. You can sign a petition,  sponsored by Or you can talk about it and you can make your voice heard. Lets get rid of just one type of gun: the automatic assault weapon designed to kill people. 

It's up to us to decide which century and what kind of society we want to live in.

The General Election is not valid and Ted Cruz is not natural-born in America

By Maurice Lacunza

A President must be natural-born and
 a citizen of his state for at least 14 years
There is no provision in the Constitution for a general election by the populace. Article II, Section 1 describes the electoral process for choosing a President. Amendment XII expands on the electoral process. Article XXIII gives the right to vote for electors for President without hindrance due to tax liability. Otherwise, there is no description for a general Presidential election and thus it has no legal standing.

Further, the author intended that the candidate be natural-born; not in a foreign country such as France or England. Canada was owned by England in 1763 and continued its ties until Canada completely become sovereign beginning in 1867 and finalized in the Canada Act of 1982- yes 1982. The safeguard was to insure that the President was a natural-born bona fide citizen, -of the new Republic. Thus Ted Cruz constitutionally is ineligible to be President. Born in Canada, he was given Canadian citizenship. Because his mother was American, he was given a secondary citizenship. However, that accreditation is not predicated on natural-born. The courts often interpret the Constitution with an eye towards an evolving citizenry, so it is hard to say what the Supreme Court would rule. My guess is that it will be an interesting legal case if Cruz is nominated for the Republican Party presidential candidate.

HR 758 Stirs UP Cold War Fear Against Russia

By Maurice Lacunza
We the People disagree with HR 758!

In regards to the recent passage of HR 758 that condemns Russia, this document lays a foundation of fear and distrust against Russia that could lead to military conflict or another cold war. Ask your Senator to speak out against House Resolution 758.  HR 758 create fear without reason;  it is dangerous and it is inflammatory. Click here to call your Senator and voice your opinion.

A cold war may be instigated by this document. It is written by elected officials under the control of corporate interests who want to take oil from the East and make money off of war. Greed masquerading as fear has no place in a modern society.

Big Money is the real problem.
 Usually these conflicts are all about money and how corporations can get more of it. Corporate leaders convince Congress that Russia is a problem. These companies say that oil, coal and gas are threatened by Russia.  They stir up non-existent problems and bring nations to war; and then the wheels of commerce grab the natural resources of those countries. We must make Russia our ALLY and not our enemy. 

Wake up America. Call your Senator and ask them to respond to this Resolution with a counter statement. In Washington state, you can call Senator Patty Murray at 202-224-2681. Tell her that the Senate should publicly chastise the House and that
HR 758 must be rebuked and discredited by the Senate.

Russian families are like you and me.

Russia is no different than you or I. We all want to put food on our tables, drive our cars, go out on weekends and spend our days and weekends with our friends. Russia is no different.
Putin is not the enemy. He is vilified so that America will be "afraid" and thus support the false flag that Russia is evil.
Americans were deceived by Iraq and now the House of Representatives want to sell you the idea that Russia is a threat.
Don't buy into it. Call your Senator today.

Government Shutdown: Eliminate Lobbyists and Create Term Limits. Toss Them All Out Every Six Years.

By Maurice Lacunza

Congress has been very very good to me!
The U.S. government is shut down. That means that I can NOT contact my senators. My emails are bounced back as "undeliverable" and my phone calls are met with a recording that says they are shut down. How does a government of representation become unrepresentative? Do I have to get on a tractor and drive to DC?

 You can have a war in Iraq but you can't call your Senator. It is time we find a legal strategy to gut the current system and set up a system in which Congress can actually REPRESENT citizens and not special interests.
It only serves Big Money, Big Oil & Big Pharma.

1) Congress depends on lobbying for special interests who write laws that serve their special interests only (ironically, Congress is a special interest too.) In return, the lobby group provides financial support for the congressman. Norway has a working model that serves very well. Over 50% of Congress Senators who leave office are hired as lobbyists and get twice the salary they earned as a public servant. Check out Norway.

Congress to K Street lobby firms

Restrict Lobbyists

2) Eliminate campaign donations. If Congress doesn't have to worry about where the money comes from, they can't be bought off as easily.

Solution: Taxpayer funded campaigns. 

3) Everybody wants power and control. Serving in the current Congressional environment feeds and builds that power and control.  Kick them all out every six years.  

Solution: Term Limits of six years.

After serving in Congress for six years,
Farmer Brown went back to his regular job.
The only way to stop the prostitution of Congress is to eliminate lobbyists, reduce term limits, and provide for equal financing of political campaigns. As long as Congress can be bought and sold, they will serve those special interests including themselves. During the shutdown, Congress EXEMPTED themselves from the "shutdown." Congress does not care about you. They care about their own selfish selves and their special interests that bank roll them.

Maybe the shutdown will produce an angry constituency that creates the same type of anger that we saw rise up with the Occupy Wallstreet/Anonymous movements. It is time though that we reign in our wild Congress and impose limits on the power and control that has been so rampantly abused.We can only hope that one day Congress will be a congress of the people, by the people and for the people.

Pride Tacoma 2013: The Straights Were the Winners Today!

By Maurice Lacunza
July 13, 2013

 Today was Pride Tacoma. Interesting Fact: When the MC asked the gays in the crowd to shout out, the response was good. When he asked the straights to shout out, the place went NUTS! I was shocked at how many of our straight friends and family were support the ones that they love. It goes to show you that the times are changing. And that, my dear friends, is a GOOD thing! — at Tacoma Pride Day Festival.

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

By Maurice Lacunza

 Why do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

View details
Gays Go Boom
According to the leader of the the Southern Baptist Convention, Fred Luter, North Korea leader Kim Jong-un is aiming missiles because of the recent gay marriage support across America. (BTW, the irony of missile obsession is not lost on me.) He said, "Could our slide into immorality be what is unleashing this mad man over here in Asia to punish us?”

As I look back in time, in my own life, I see that I have often used religion to explain why bad things have happened and also why good things have happened to me. I came to see that mankind in general needs an answer to explain why things happen to us. The alternative is to accept that life doles out random events and sometimes it is the throw of dice that determines your fate.

Whatever We Believe, Is What God Becomes

You Are What You Believe
As I considered the statement of Fred Luter, I was a bit offended that he could make such a huge leap of logic. But then I stopped and considered who he is, where he came from, the belief systems supported by his peer group and the teachings of his religion. Luter believes in an Old Testament God of hellfire and brimstone.  It only makes sense that he would need an explanation to understand why a madman would aim nuclear missiles at America. Clearly God is punishing us; according to his guilt based understanding of religion. The truth is harder to accept however. The fact is, there are crazy self serving dictators in the world and they do crazy things because they can. 

An Angry God Punishes, And A Loving God Loves. Which God do you believe in?

Don't Make Me Feed You!
Does God really want to punish America just because the people have decided to accept and love their brothers and sisters who are gay? Does a loving God really do that? No. But an angry God would. And that is what we have here: an angry God which is an extension of what Fred Luter believes. And each of us have our own version of God, whatever we believe is what God becomes.  For Fred, he believes in a God who punishes. He can't make sense of senseless acts, so, he turns to God. And his God punishes; thus, he has an answer for unanswerable actions. It is the nature of humans to explain why things happen.
Times Square in blur motion
Time. Reveals Everything.

 The March of Time Reveals All

For some of us, the march of time reveals that chance and fate are often the real reasons behind untimely events. Not to say that God doesn't intervene. That is probably true. But I think a reasonable person could assume that nuclear warfare is not a punishment from God for supporting and loving gay people.
