$11.6 billion dollars

. building a system of small, localized clean wind and solar power, using as close to natural ingredients as possible, will immediately disengage us from the worldwide wars being fought over the power to control toxic non-renewable fuels, the extraction of which (subsidized by us) does irreparable damage to the very planet and atmosphere on which we depend to survive . eliminating the need to transport these toxins will eliminate the need for toxic cleanups, and spare us the health and economic costs of further destruction and pollution
. invest in positive relationships by supporting education and organic food farming around the world . by educating ourselves and our children, we support ingenuity, and reduce poverty, which reduces crime . by making international friends through positive interactions instead of making enemies by bullying and pilfering the world for fuels, we’ll also greatly reduce the need to defend ourselves, as we will reduce the number of enemies, and experience support from around the world
. begin the complete nuclear disarmament and the dismantling of the nuclear energy debacle . every nuclear facility is now beyond it’s projected safe lifespan, and the notion of ‘safe’ has been proven a farce of great magnitude
. defund every national and international deal which involves the people in the u.s. financially supporting any and every military and mercenary offensive action everywhere . this includes funding for such projects as the zionist expansion movement by the israeli government and military, and funding for such actions as the u.s. military and mercenary invasion and occupation of iraq . this part of the policy would replenish some of what is spent disassembling the nuclear establishment
. fund local, elected, non-police affiliated, non-prosecutor affiliated twelve-member commissions all over the country to hold police and both private and public security agencies accountable to abide by the laws of this country in every interaction in which they engage with the people . empower the commission by providing complete funding toward a full legal staff and team of investigators . empower the commission with the right and responsibility to directly financially penalize officers and agents, to fire, and to publicly report any sanctions or other results of their investigations . those funds can be recovered by requiring that officers and agents who create circumstances which lead to civil claim settlements or judgements pay those debts themselves, and prohibit those debts from being extracted from city, county, state, and federal budgets . holding police and agents accountable for their actions will save the people from financing those payouts, and ultimately save great sums of money which currently are spent to run civil cases through the system, up the court ladder
. implement and fund a requirement of immediate drug testing for every officer and agent involved or being accused of being involved in any use of force or other abuse of power whatsoever, no matter who is claiming the force was used or power abused . again, this would, in the long run, be a deterrent to the type of violence by police which stems from steroid and other substance use . by reducing the use of steroids and other drugs, violent attacks by police would be reduced, which in turn would prevent the lawsuits mentioned above
. enact and financially support the enforcement of high standards of nutritional and health provisions for prisoners in every jail and prison under the jurisdiction of the american people, whether on home or foreign soil or water, from the brig to the state prisons . provide funding for complete renovation necessary to transform every place used for incarceration of humans to support educational and trades instruction, to become the rehabilitation centers we need to put an end to mass incarceration altogether . begin a process of educational effort so profound as to create a situation where super minimum security sites would be able to be used for those people who’ve committed non-violent offenses, and have no way to offer more direct, restorative reimbursement for their offense . fund well-staffed, high quality, respectful mental health care to every person in custody who requests or requires it
. develop and implement single payer health care option, while also funding serious enforcement of strict regulations of private insurance and health care providers

capitalism is a feeder . all it breeds is greed

capitalism the consumer
swallowing whole to fill a gaping wound of the spirit
no sense of balance
hunger trounces the victor
with bags and loads of money
his pale facade revealing
the reeling retreat
of one needing to eat once again
twice in a morning
while those left staring at the gaping wound in the dirt
near the once clear river
no water to drink or drip into gullies of seeds
the victor agreed to bring water
which is carried along
wrapped in thinly veiled toxins
dioxins masquerading as art and design
shards of the new pottery
lining the stomachs of dolphins
those ones standing there near the water
they can’t drink
are left with no lunch
after seeing no breakfast
the rest of the day spent in anguish
while the victor plays golf on the green

bees lean on each other and gasp
