Some story tidbits about his recent well-regarded book about Rubel's Castle are available at http://peopleslobby.us/more-projects/rubelia. In 2013 Rubelia was designated a National Historic Monument, right up there with Hearst Castle. CBS clip: Rubel's Castle is on verge of listing on National Registry http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2013/08/07/rubel-castle-in-glendora-on-the-verge-of-getting-national-historic-recognition/ Dwayne is presently Executive Director of People's Lobby Inc (PLI, 501c4)and People's Lobby's Education Foundation (PLEF, 501c3). You can read PLI's American World Service Corps Congressional Proposal (AWSC) at http://peopleslobby.us/awsc-congressional-proposal Rebuilding People'Lobby web site is available at http://peopleslobby.us/ Congresswoman Woolsey (D, CA) offered to introduce it in the 111th Congress, then retracted. Please contact your Congressional reps and ask them to become an original sponsor or cosponsor. The AWSC citizen-initiated congressional proposals could be, with you pushing your representatives, among the most significant legislation passed and implemented in decades. Imagine having 21 million Americans cost effectively doing good at home or abroad over the next 27 years. In December 2009 Ralph Nader choose People's Lobby's book, "Ordinary People Doing the Extraordinary, The Story of Ed & Joyce Koupal's People's Lobby" as one of the Ten Best Books to Read for 2009. You can purchase the book from PeoplesLobby.us or learn more at http://peopleslobby.us/more-projects/books. "This country runs on laws. If you want to change the country, write its laws," People's Lobby's founders Ed and Joyce Koupal used to say. If you want to enlighten public policy, involve millions of Americans in addressing public needs, prepare for climate weirding, etc., help make it happen. The AWSC addresses with people action many of our most pressing and costly needs. To sign the reopened American World Service Corps petition/letter, which contacts Congress for you: Paste http://www.change.org/petitions/view/field_21_million_american_world_service_corps_volunteers_over_the_next_27_years Please help make the AWSC happen.

How the Peace Corps Conspired & Colluded to Deceive this Good Catholic Boy into Worshiping False Gods I don't know what young kids pray to or for in temples or mosques. I know this Catholic kid prayed to a lot of statues to stay out of hell, avoid mortal sins -- like petting, and do well in baseball, football, and basketball. Growing up in suburban Parma, Ohio, where my dad had a union truck-driving job, those prayed-for goals seemed hellishly important. Then the Peace Corps deceitfully led me to worship false gods.

How PC are PCs on PC, or How Politically Correct are Presidential Candidates on Peace Corps The war to end wars didn't. However, it made Americans more aware of world needs and hammered fascism and racism. Buying into a stupid "falling dominoes" theory to bomb South Vietnamese proved that we did not know enough about the world. Today, without a draft, we expose generations to experience the world too often through night goggles and drones. Ingraining war mentality through service is not the answer.

Pretty Woman Hooks Tax Haveners and Rob Walton's Hot Cars "Without understanding tax havens, we'll never properly understand the economic history of the modern world," wrote Nicholas Shaxson, author of 'Treasure Islands.' "Tax havens are now at the heart of the global economy. Their tentacles have curled their way into pretty much everything." Do tax havens matter? You don't see them. So whether they're in Delaware, Switzerland, or the British Virgin Islands, let havens be, right?

President uses “Nobel's mo” to change the world One person doesn't make peace. One person can add momentum, or lead “people,” toward peace. America's economy is shaky, the world's in great need, and people are searching for ways to work themselves out of the inherited mess. To address all that, Obama should use his “Nobel Mo” to implement the American World Service Corps Congressional Proposals to turn the mess around. If not now, when?

Who Cares for the Gold Star Moms Who Care for Our Vets? In today's dollars, WWII cost us $3 trillion, which all Americans paid for with blood and War Bonds. The Bush administration nailed that coffin by refusing to tax even the megarich to pay for the $3 trillion WMD-less Iraq War. Today a broken middle class bears Iraq's cost., including lost health care for even its Gold Star heroines. Is this how even a second rate economy should handle its heroes?

Raping Taxpayers for 50+ years - and it's becoming easier This is a taxing piece about the economic warfare between and among the Morgans, Buffets, and the rest of us. "If the government cannot collect its taxes, a man is a fool to pay them." J. Pierpont Morgan. "There's class warfare, all right, but it's my class, the rich class, that's making war, and we're winning." Warren Buffett.
