"Any nation that year after year continues to raise the Defense budget while cutting social programs to the neediest is a nation approaching spiritual death." - Rev. MLK
Three decades after the Cold War, we the people of the US are being taxed at a rate 75% higher than the annual Cold War average of $5.1 billion!
We the people are also being forced to pay for "modernization" which equates to EXPANSION to fund new multi-billion dollar facilities for the production of plutonium pits at Los Alamos, NM and thermonuclear "secondaries" at Y-12, in Oak Ridge. Tenn.
The FY 2012 budget for the National Nuclear Security Administration includes 7.6 billion for nuclear weapons research and production.
Funding for a new "Uranium Processing Facility" for production of thermonuclear secondaries at the Y-12 production plant near Oak Park Ridge, TN, is proposed to increase to $160.2 million from $115 million in 2011.
The 2012 budget request also creates a new Life Extension Program for the B61 warhead funded at $223.6 million, even though that gravity bomb's original mission of forward deployment in Europe against a Soviet threat vanished at the end of the Cold War.
Extension Programs extend the service lives of existing nuclear weapons for
three decades or more, in contradiction to our declared national security goal
of a future world free of nuclear weapons, and it also endows them with new
military capabilities. 
This six billion year old planet could be gone in one dark day due to nuclear war or a nuclear 'human mistake' yet every factory in the USA that is currently producing cogs and bolts for nuclear weapons could be re-tooled within a year to manufacturing or researching Green Energy.
13 Nonviolent citizens of conscience are facing fines and more jail time for being nuclear resisters.
Mr. Gump is asking all concerned citizens to write a brief
letter to the Judge for the Y-12 Thirteen, requesting leniency because of the undue severity of the
charge, the motivation of the
defendants and the nonviolent
Dear Relatives, Friends and Supporters,
Jean [and all others] will face a possible sentence of one year in prison and a $100,000 fine when she is sentenced on September 12, 2011.
Her crime, a misdemeanor charge of trespass at Y-12, Oak Ridge, TN with twelve others on July 5, 2010.
Her motive, to protest the continued and soon to be expanded production of Hydrogen Bomb materials at that location.
This plant produced the Uranium used to make the Atom Bomb dropped on Hiroshima, Japan sixty years ago. Such production is prohibited by International Law and various treaties which our government has signed.
The Nuremberg Principles established at the end of WWII were used to prosecute German citizens for failing to do what Jean is now being punished for, namely objecting to the criminal activities of their country.
