On March 13, 2005 Dennis Kucinich spoke at Unity on the River in Amesbury, MA. I captured the talk on video, and Susan Livingston transcribed it for us. Mr. Kucinich was at his inspriational best as he articulately and powerfully ranged over many subjects at the talk including the war in Iraq, the Department of Peace, the loss (and re-emergence) of hope in politics, and many others.

Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich (D-OH) gave the following speech on September 2, 2005 on the House floor during a special session to provide relief money for the victims of Hurricane Katrina:

This amount of money is only a fraction of what is needed and everyone here knows it. Let it go forward quickly with heart-felt thanks to those who are helping to save lives with necessary food, water, shelter, medical care and security. Congress must also demand accountability with the appropriations. Because until there are basic changes in the direction of this government, this tragedy will multiply to apocalyptic proportions. read more »

"Sufficient Ablution" is an excerpt from my hybrid work of essay/memoir "A Thousand Beautiful Things", a poor person's guide to the healing therapy of interior design. Being a gay male, it is also an instinctive response to the myth of the rich hedonistic gay lifestyle since my biggest orgy of depravity is a cup of coffee and crafts from the dollar store!

I came across a wonderful propeace website, www.apassionforpeace.com. In exploring the site I found that it too has an approach that focuses on creating the peace we want in the world beyond simply being opposed to violence. The website puts forth a challenge: commit to writing one piece for peace before December 31, 2005. Have it published, read it or have it read somewhere publicly. Post your piece for peace here on propeace.net if you would like. Peace will take the participation of all of us. Here's the link to the challenge: http://www.apassionforpeace.com/2005_write_a_piece_for_peace_challenge/i....

The webmaster of that site sums it up this way: "What we focus on expands." What will you focus on?

This letter was published on Congressman Kucinich's website www.kucinich.us and in The Nation.

Speaking before an ACLU crowd last week in Minnesota, the home state of Paul Wellstone, you were quoted as saying, "Now that we're there [in Iraq], we're there and we can't get out.... I hope the President is incredibly successful with his policy now." Did these words really come from the same man who claimed to represent the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party, and who had recently campaigned on the antiwar theme? What's changed?

Hopefully people will see the non-sequitur and absurdity of this. If military recruiters really are so desparate they'll accept any credentials, any "character flaws" and any political ideology, then our efforts are working. Imagine them having to say they are Kucinich supporters in order to attract interest! Imagine them actually thinking that would work! Gary Trudeau is brilliant.

What do you think?

Hey, maybe we could evolve the establishment by enlisting and filling the military ranks with pacifists... nah!! read more »
