Dwayne served in the Peace Corps in the slums of Mumbai, India, worked several Habitat Projects, and was on the start-up team of the California Conservation Corps. He has a Ph.D. from Claremont Graduate University, has been a builder, teacher, political organizer, small businessman, affordable housing developer, and a rock-piler at Rubel's Castle. Some pics and stories at http://peopleslobby.us/more-projects/rubelia.

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. To learn more about People's Lobby, visit the web site at www.Peopleslobby.us.

Fr. Nelson's Boys Peel Half a Banana Over Mumbai's Opulent Taj Mahal Hotel and Olympics A Peace Corps Story Jam narrative describes why peeling a banana is a much cheaper way to not only build community but stem and reverse the spread of terrorism, move walls, make friends, and improve economies, while hardly breaking a sweat. Imagine what the world would be like if 21 million Americans peeled these bananas for a generation... And other nations selfishly copied this national service model. Pestered Congress?

Pt 2."Where's that damn sandaled, marauding platoon Jesus kept training and droning miracles with?" Jesus Christ and John Fitzgerald Kennedy had their own recognizable gangs. They came to be known as JC's "Apostles" and JFK's "Peace Corps." In crowded India, where I served as a PCV, they were called "Shanti Senna," or Peace Army. Were JC and JFK trying to show us how to build winning, heavenly armies for all times and that after tines?

Peace Corps, Bin Laden, JFK, Sarge... chasing hearts & minds? JFK pushed to send Peace Corps more than Marine Corps. Instead, a wartime mentality won the day. Again, in 2014 there is a little push to expand the Peace Corps. Isn't it time to make the Peace Corps and other do-good organizations REALLY BIG? Isn't it time we and others build National Service programs that address longstanding human needs, peacefully eradicate the causes of terrorism, and reverse global climate change?

The Bush administration nailed that coffin by refusing to tax even the megarich to pay for the $3 trillion WMD-less Iraq War.

Hey, Generals McChrystal, Petraeus... "Can we win it?" Here's the answer for: General McChrystal "For every innocent person you kill, you create 10 new enemies." Former UN Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick "It will take more than commandos to win the war on terror." President Bush ".. create conditions so that the - those who use terror as a tool are less acceptable in parts of the world." How will you help make it happen?

The poker table echoed, "What's fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness?" Does the antidote for "dumbing down" a nation include addressing poverty, disasters, and hatreds while serving alongside perceived enemies? How many would sign up to peacefully serve alongside a perceived "enemy" to make more than just "America great again"? How much smarter does such service make a nation?

"This is BS..." Trumped-up war, deaths, PTSD, foreclosures... Our active military, National Guard, their parents" pay steep prices for marching us into trumped-up wars. Then too many of their loved ones suffer more with foreclosures, while the uber-rich merely party-on. What's wrong here in America? Is this the kind of country you want to step forward for? Do we need to add another kind of army? One that learns skills, wins hearts and minds, and understands the real world.

Growing Habitat, AmeriCorps, etc. for today and tomorrows' New Orleans Habitat does wonderful work. AmeriCorps provides great workers learning from and doing needed service. Making such organizations bigger and better makes America smarter and stronger. This piece, based on doing some 2010 New Orleans Habitat work, is intended to help improve both Habitat and AmeriCorps, tying its lessons into the need to implement People's Lobby's American World Service Corps (AWSC) Congressional Proposals.

Has a nation of doers become too pathetic to wage an empathetic war that defeats terror? Do political or religious leaders even care? What differentiates a religious talker from a spiritual doer? Are you a talker or doer?

A nation wins the hearts of Ravis at home and abroad by fielding a different army. Deploying ten brigades of soldiers for the foreseeable future insures we quickly replicate the Roman Empire's final years.

Generals wish America had this AWSC policy 20 years ago Had America had a robust American World Service Corps for 20+ years, today's costly military engagement in Afghanistan would have been unnecessary. General McChrystal's COIN goals would have been doable, because we would have built a more solid, educated community during less violent times. Why not urge those who have served, like Congressman Sestak PA.,to push the AWSC forward?
