Enter Seth Orme and Abby Taylor, two long distance touring cyclists who pedaled 5,025 miles across the United States in 2017 to pick up 1,200 pounds of trash from Cumberland Island, Georgia to Cape Flattery Washington. They packed out that trash in their trusty B.O.B. (beast of burden) trailer to the next public trash can.

Predatory Presidents & Congressmen in Washington DC
What does that tell you? That's a body of mostly 535 men who used taxpayer dollars to defend themselves against sexual charges and bad conduct. If the media reports their names, perhaps a quarter or third of Congress must resign within a month.

National Health Care: Responsibility To Yourself
National health care? How about your own "Personal Health Care" on a day-to-day basis? How about eating, exercising and caring for your entire well being by your daily actions? It's called "Two degrees of effort over time."
National Health Care, Or Is It Sick Care?

Endless Refugees: Our Country Faces Sobering Impacts
America expects to add 100,000,000 immigrants by 2050. Their impact on water, energy, resources and environment have not been been considered. We need a national discussion-debate on overpopulation in America and what's driving it.

Your Inner Life Elevates Your Outer Life
Think positive, act positive, feel positive and speak positively in everything you do every day. That means to catch yourself if you fall into negative thoughts or actions stemming from anything that happens to you. Once you climb onto the "positive" thought train, your inner life leads to your outer expression in positive ways.

Crossing the Bridge into 2015
Unfortunately, just like a passenger on an airplane, most Americans carry "baggage" into the New Year. Emotional baggage! They lug it to the airport, toss it onto the conveyer belt and pick it up at their new destination. Regrettably, if you carry your emotional baggage into 2015, you face a repeat of your frustrations, failures and disappointments.
You Always Command Choice in Your Life
When arrested for drugs in her pockets, one movie starlit said, "These aren't my pants. I don't know anything about what's in the pockets." Another fashion model, upon being arrested for speeding, said, "This isn't my car so I'm not sure about the speedometer."
The Snowden Interview: Patriot, Honor, Citizen
I applaud Snowden. If more Snowden's stood up in the face of withering criticism or "following the power elites" that create wars or spy on our own citizens or recklessly endanger our country--none of our kids would have died in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Desert Storm or Afghanistan.

Judgment: Higher Frequencies of Human Consciousness
In your life, you will refrain from making judgments or comparisons once you understood the universal law of energy that flows out of your mind and back into your mind by your thoughts or words. The universe reciprocates your energy, whether good or otherwise.
Change your life with P.A.C.E.
Some great philosopher said, "We find two wolves fighting in our minds. The good wolf and the bad wolf." A student asked, "Which one wins?" The teacher said, "The one you feed."

Igniting the Creative Dynamo within You
Ideas fly around the universe waiting for someone to grab them and bring them to form. Your mind constitutes a "net" that captures ideas. You may remember that tiny, gold, winged ball in the Harry Potter books that flew around the stadium while students chased it on their broomsticks.

Three profound secrets to a happy life
Henry David Thoreau said, "If you advance confidently toward your dreams, and endeavor to live the life which you have imagined, you will meet with success unexpected in common hours. You will pass through invisible boundaries. You will engage new and liberal laws. And you will live with the license of a higher order of beings."

Saving the Redwoods for future generations
Those magnificent “Monarchs of the mist” stunned our family in that we drove through one of them, walked around in a house carved out inside one of them and camped next to one.
What America will look like in 2050--cultural disintegration
"They claim the right not to assimilate, and the day is coming when the question will be how can the United States regulate the defiantly unassimilated cultures, religions, and mores of foreign lands? Such immigrants say their traditions trump the U.S. legal system. Balkanization of the United States has begun."

We sweep so much under the rug in America
In the townships, vigilante beatings and killings are the norm," wrote Time writer Alex Perry. "South Africa's private security industry employs 411,000 people, more than double the number of police officers. South Africa knows crime as a vast stretch of lawlessness covering an area twice the size of Texas.
Scarcity: Humanity's Final Chapter?
Erik Davis referred to us as exhibiting "Consensus trance." With such definite realities facing us and very close at hand, how could an educated and free people with limitless news media and academic institutions choose to ignore our harsh realities?

Of course humans are not overpopulating the planet
"Many people, especially ignorant people, want to punish you for speaking the truth, for being correct. Never apologize for being correct, or for being years ahead of your time. If you are correct and you know it, speak your mind. Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is still the truth." Gandhi

Before - During And After Newtown There Is Overwhelming Sadness
I discovered an American man beats his wife or girlfriend every 15 seconds in America. How do you swallow that one emotionally, intellectually or otherwise? We are supposed to be a moral, ethical and lawful nation. Instead, we are a sick bunch of child abusers and wife beaters.

Christmas in Antarctica: a moment frozen in time
There, in that frozen wasteland beyond the borders of my imagination where humanity does not belong, Mother Nature touched me again with her pulsing heart and living warmth. I only hope my species learns as much respect for our fellow travelers as they show toward us.

Newtown, Connecticut: our violent culture
With point-blank accuracy, one 20-year-old disturbed kid stilled the life of those young children. The father of one of the slain, Robbie Parker, said of his daughter Emilie, "I was honored to be her father." I wept as did one of our other ministers. Hundreds of others in the congregation visibly shuddered.
Bikes in bloom across America
"Camp out among the grass and gentians of glacier meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of Nature's darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees."

Our incredible predicament in America: the American Dream

Part 1 of 3: The Cassandra Syndrome for Canada, Europe, Australia and America
Cassandra Syndrome: It is a term applied to predictions of doom about the future that are not believed, but upon later reflection turn out to be correct. This denotes a psychological tendency among people to disbelieve inescapably bad news, often through denial. The person making the prediction is caught in the dilemma of knowing what is going to happen but not being able to resolve the problem.

America becoming the sacrifice zone for world population overload
"Upwards of two hundred species, mostly of the large, slow-breeding variety, are becoming extinct here every day because more and more of the earth's carrying capacity is systematically being converted into human carrying capacity. These species are being burnt out, starved out, and squeezed out of existence--thanks to technologies that most people, I'm afraid, think of as technologies of peace."

Iraq: Who Won, Who Lost, Who Got Screwed?
"Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them that they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country."

The American tragedy of Joe Paterno
"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow, Creeps in this petty pace from day to day, To the last syllable of recorded time; and all our yesterdays have lighted fools, the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more.

Why continue two useless wars?
Does anyone know or understand why we sent 6,200 kids to their deaths and another 40,000 brought back home without legs and arms or their minds? We can expect a minimum of 100,000 post-war suicides from combat troops with scrambled brains.
The American empire created bin Laden
"Empires are diseases," said Thucydides. "The tyranny that the Athenian empire imposed on others, it finally imposed on itself. "The disease of empire," said Thucydides, "would finally kill Athenian democracy. And the disease of empire, these are mirrored in the anarchic violence of these groups, but one that locks us in a kind of frightening death spiral."
