(#1) GOP HERD REDUCTION PLAN (By JPL, aka GBF, 10/18/2021):



Don’t be a DUMB ASS!

Running out of time

Day coming near & FAST!

Running out of time

Don’t want 2nd Civil War!

Running out of time

Don’t want 3rd World War!

Running out of time







They’re surely CORRUPT


Please don’t now FAIL

Duty says they get JAIL

Democracy is at STAKE



Will be our NEW BAPTISM





History it does REPEAT

There’s always a MISCREANT

Benito & Adolf both KNEW



For them only they FULFILL

They ignore COMMON GOOD

Their end comes if we STOOD

Careful not to wait too long

Must now listen to our song



Voting Rights they PLUNDER

Lightning it follows THUNDER


Is warning to our SOLDIERS

They’ll follow our POTUS

When they get his NOTICE

Abe & Franklin they did RISE

To clear WARNING in their EYES





It is each day that we PRAY

We ask Dear God DON’T DELAY

Humanity & Planet at STAKE

HARMONY we wish to MAKE

To fulfill human rights & NEEDS

And avoid suffering & MISDEEDS

New generations must survive

For this we must strive

Act now & they’ll be alive

Come year Twenty Ninety-Five




Aye Yai Yai

Oh my my

Time does fly

We don’t know

Ying Yang Yo

Time runs low

Ain’t no glee

If US not free

Time does flee

Beyond the fray

Clown does play

Time won’t stay

He’s pure insane

The Orangutan

Must stop pain

Not being a fuss

Must Protect US

And now Save US

__________________________6/6 GBF



(#2) DECEMBER 13 Good Luck

(By JPL, aka GBF; 12/13/2021):


Thirteen does not mean sad

Ain’t No time to be mad

A time to discover

Perhaps a new lover

Or it’s time to reveal

What others do conceal

Much better than a six

That’s related to prix

One & three equals four

Oh & there is much more

Six repeated times 3

Tells US time to flee



But through it we must stay

Lest the goons turn US gray

Near now is 2 & 2

We are red, white & BLUE

And prefer what is true

They will suppress & purge

Gives commander the urge

To be there to oversee

And avoid their dishonesty

Past guy as House Speaker

Couldn’t get much bleaker



13 day is our luck

Progressing from the muck

We must avoid lunacy

Brings forth autocracy

If two two they do win

Two three will come too late

They stand at flaming gate

Two four decades do bring

An everlasting sting

Pray Prez & Congress Dems

See basis that oath stems







(By JPL, aka GBF; 12/23/2021):


Demagogues they always come and go,

But while here death & destruction grow,

Many aspire to their twisted path,

Willingly done to avoid their wrath,

Such sick behavior is glorified,

Feelings absent towards those who’ve died,


One thinks that history it will teach,

Ignorance and evil past its reach,

Great leader with forces they could end,

With fortitude & courage they send,

Strong desire to uphold foundation,

And keep intact our Constitution,



To save our precious democracy,

That encourages diversity,

For We the People from sea to sea,

Please avoid autocracy We plea,

Either way death & destruction occurs,

Pray & hope our great Union endures.






(#4) 2021-2022 HOLIDAY SEASON

(By JPL, aka GBF; 12/25/2021):


It is that time of year for happy cheer,

With our friends & family we embrace,

Together we dine & drink wine & beer,

Sitting together with gifts to unlace,



What we truly wish for cannot be wrapped,

The world we live in is a complex brew,

High above us human gases are trapped,

With animal markets diseases grew,



Diverse melting pot becoming so vast,

Yet homogeny forces still object,

Quickly forgetting freedom fights of past,

And instead ignoring after effect,



So the holidays are not dark or bright,

Nor is the world full of love without hate,

Really hard to say past year was alright,

And not expecting new year to be great,



Anti vaxxing problem is so vexing,

Plus we had government insurrection,

Trump’s failed coup attempt it was perplexing,

He tried hard to destroy our foundation,



Democratic republic almost lost,

This was merely first of a practice round,

Must see what enemy within will cost,

Excuses for these actions won’t be found,



Voting Rights Plunder his party achieves,

Next lining up false slate of electors,

The Constitution our nation believes,

Says time is now to put behind steel doors,



Rebelling U.S. treasonous traitors,

President forces must administer,

In states violating rights of voters,

Autocratic options are sinister.





(#5) New Years Eve, Dec 31, 2021

(By JPL, aka GBF; 12/31/2021):


Thirty-one is our luck

Must crawl out from the muck

Must avoid lunacy

Brings forth autocracy

If two-two they do win

Two-three will come too late

They stand at flaming gate

Two-four decades will bring

An everlasting sting

Pray Prez & Congress Dems

See basis that oath stems




(#6) New Years Day 2022

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/01/2022):


Two-two now arrived but don’t be blue

GOPer Voting Rights plunder in view

We always have Commander in Chief

And Military to stop our grief

Fake dominoes abroad they defend

Now toppling here we can’t pretend

Republican New Confederate

These state officials are what we fret



(#7) 2021-2024 USA Constitution Collapse

(By JPL, aka GBF; 12/30/2021):


Twenty-One, -Two, -Three, then comes -Four

Autocratic opening door

First Trump’s attempted Congress coup

Next came Voting Rights wrecking crew

Which gives seditionists House rule

And their state electors will cheat

Bringing democracy’s defeat.







(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/06/2022):



January 6, twenty twenty-one,

Then president Trump still crying he won,

Filling mindless mob with his hate & lies,

Stirring anger seething forth in their eyes,

Trump’s Crony Crooks rouse MAGAs for the hour,

Plan to stop peaceful transfer of power,



Confederate flags they brought as their spears,

Stabbing police as elector count nears,

It was the Capitol dome they must reach,

Quickly breaking windows completing breach,

Days before Congress reps showed them the way,

To chamber where House action would play,



Clearing their path through halls they desecrate,

Smearing the walls after they defecate,

With glee Trump watching all this on TV,

Feeling proud for having created this spree,

It was clearly his planned Insurrection,

Coup attempt failing like his election,



Losing twice to get back into office,

Not following legitimate process,

His party now conjuring other schemes,

Seeking to fulfill autocratic dreams,

Realizing now they’re the minority,

They choose fight now against diversity,



Many states violating voting rights,

Ignoring Constitution in their fights,

Pretending states not bound to U.S. laws,

Instead use own statutes with many flaws,

Besides voter purging and suppression,

Now Electors biased for election,



They have path now for election midterms,

Bringing new Speaker when Congress adjourns,

By twenty-four they will have all branches,

And gone will be democracy’s chances,

In eight years Trump will get autocracy,

Odds rising for this world emergency,



Soon will be up to executive branch,

We hope and pray he will take a strong stance,

If fed voting rights fails in the Senate.

It will destroy nation’s founding tenet,

We don’t want repeat civil or world war,

Because with it comes misery and gore,



Fed elections in violating states,

Are what executive order abates.

Now reaching the point that options are few,

Something to ponder while in the pew,

Our great hope now is in our President,

And Armed Forces during this embroilment.





(#9) Time Stopped Again During USA “democracy” Renaissance (By JPL, aka GBF; 01/20/2022):


Our country is now at critical stage,

Importance now is manner we engage,

Politeness not a high priority,

When red party stripping equality,




Our founders created detailed premise,

Checks and balances to ward off menace,

It is now time to employ those safeguards,

Or saving republic not in the cards




We must protect our justice & freedom,

To avoid reverting to a kingdom,

Unequal now is gerrymandering,

Senate filibuster blocks law making.




Red party cares not about common good,

Corporations now have personhood,

No limits now on business donations,

Elections based on financed promotions.






The Republican New Confederates,

Ignoring our Constitution tenets,

Using Voters’ purging & suppression,

And Electoral College subversion.




We’re now at point for autocratic rule,

What is to stop that which will be cruel,

This situation has happened before,

It took drastic steps and began a war,




To an oath all public officials swear,

Constitution & Union they must care,

This applies to federal, local & state,

To do otherwise, chaos they create,




To reverse suffrage for progress achieved,

Backward thinking shouldn’t have been conceived,

Abe acted to save our democracy,

The Union won and ended slavery.




So now as mega entertainment corps,

Brings US so called news that warps,

We must just pray & hope our President,

Remembers the Abe Lincoln precedent.






The Republican New Confederates,

Ignoring our Constitution tenets,

Using Voters’ purging & suppression,

And Electoral College subversion.







(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/20/2022):


As we get older justice is clear
For rich not poor it’s always near
We keep wishing things will be equal
Just fairytale and so magical
To report CRIMe plants to state AG
Who had delegated authority
And Constitution obligation
First priority was re-election




(#11) Looking Way Yonder

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/20/2022):


Most of US tend to look way YONDER

For those things we hope may be FONDER

Often times much better to LOOK NEAR

To those we should realize are MOST DEAR

So important now more THAN EVER

Powerful people NOT SO CLEVER

Too bad for US they HOLD the LEVER

Which could END things FOREVER




(#12) Machiavellian Manchin

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/21/2022):


Machiavellian Joe Manchin

Sitting on his yacht with big fat grin

Tells US no worries on voting rights

Was so full of filibuster frights

Says with government, voting just fine

Just ask coal baron friends sipping wine

Or his daughter rich on EpiPens

Now celebrate with GOP friends




(#13) SINema CINEMA:

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/21/2022):


SINema CINEMA where art thou?

Those Dem votes at polls forgotten now?

Your acts against People as traitor

Will work against you in disfavor

You now belong to UglyGOP (.com)

A deep dark red stain you cannot flee

Along with greed that envelops you

Forever more you’ve lost true blue




(#14) NINE SHORT MONTHS to Election

(By JPL, aka GBF; :02/20/2022):


What happens between now and election?

And what are chances of intervention?

Will GOPer (goaper) confederate states prevail?

Won’t that cause our democracy to fail?



Seems Constitution no longer applies?

In Trumps’ and Republican Party’s eyes?

Unlawful odds stacked against Dems now great,

GOPer state officials dooming our fate,



Twenty-two win will strengthen their deceit,

And lead to twenty-four big Dem defeat,

This won’t be solved now in congress or courts,

And will be different than days of forts,



So what lies ahead for US we ask?

It is certain to be humongous task

State laws for our federal election

Must all adhere to the Constitution



To purge & suppress votes is illegal

Contrary to being fair & equal,

Must prevent Electoral subversion

So there is no autocratic conversion





(#15) USA Stopped at the Crossroads

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/21/2022):


Because of covid, we’re doing way too much thinking,

And mostly whining, and perhaps not enough drinking,

Just thinking this is all just going to work out fine,

Maybe you should just stop drinking all that beer & wine,



And just when we decided we better imbibe much less,

We find out that our votes the GOPers plan to suppress,

So now we are on course for autocratic type rule,

Being led by big corps, super rich, & the cruel,



Democracy and freedom will be gone for long time,

And anyone who objects will be accused of a crime,

So lesson to be learned is not to vote for a clown,

And if you do, the next thing he will want is a crown,



Because of this, many dying as we show a frown,

Must recognize that racist male WASPs bringing US down,

Basic problem is disregarding the common good,

If only big corps and ultra rich knew where we stood,



For democratic government, people meant to rule,

With decisions and leaders chosen by majority pool,

And electors for states should represent people’s choice,

Rather than forced to vote for the state’s biased voice,



Corporate personhood is total nonsensical,

It was horrible decision by our judicial,

It skews the elections in favor of corps and rich,

And throws US and We the People in a deep ditch,



All in our diverse makeup should be equally counted,

It is unlawful to segregate groups so votes discounted,

All citizens count equally as one qualified vote,

Depriving this basic right creates a kingdom’s mote,



Which for gains made in our history, turns back the clock,

And creates tremendous unease and strife in the flock,

So now USA at crossroads has suddenly stopped,

We now seek Prez emergency EO to be propped.





(#16) 9-Month Count Down democracy Prayer

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/21/2022):


GOP Confederates they have employed,

Their sure Hook or By Crook election ploy,

Which certainly has gotten the Dems annoyed,

And has brought super wealthy tremendous joy,



Constitution demands equal protection,

Which includes equal voting rights for the public,

And states suppressing votes is violation,

Which is sedition act against republic,



So Congress new fed voting rights law has failed,

No vote against state insurrectionists yet,

High level Insurrectionists not yet jailed,

As days nearing fall election we all fret,



With advent of autocracy coming near,

The options to prevent it now are so few,

Autocratic rule in twenty-four we fear,

It is now up to President and his crew,



Must plan to admin fed elections this fall,

An act needed for voting rights to restore,

To organize this undertaking must not stall,

Please do this to save our nation we implore,



Putin’s Ukraine actions with GOP friend,

Also ploy to distract from internal need,

Autocrat-Dictator Club, let’s not pretend,

Put saving democracy here first, we plead,



As we look back to hard choices Abe had made,

We pray daily that God will guide our POTUS,

His strength and fortitude both fulfill his grade,

And will save and strengthen the freedom for US.






(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/27/2022)


Republicans good at throwing the dice,

In combination with not playing nice,

Dems however try to accommodate,

Which typically short changes our fate,




Bullies often dominate for quite long,

But hopefully in end, they end up gone,

That might just simply be wishful thinking,

Especially now when land is shrinking.






(#18) TIME Ticking, Lives Flicking

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/20/2022):




TIME coming near

Most of US fear

TIME it has stopped

Worst must be cropped

TIME running out

Who has the clout

TIME to restore

Don’t close the door

TIME then to heal

We must congeal

TIME soon for calm

Soothing oil balm


Verse 1/6:


GOPers plunder our voting right

We hope POTUS will take on fight

Constitution they violate

GOP so full of hate


Verse 2/6:


Must not impede Majority

We want to be equal & free

Male WASPs desperate as tide turned

These racists now feel they are spurned


Verse 3/6:


Democracy works against them

From this autocracy will stem

By Hook or Crook tactics they launch

To oppose this, Dems will be staunch


CHORUS (Time, Time, Time…)


Verse 4/6:


So now we sit in awe and wonder

What will it take to stop plunder

To avoid sounds of manmade thunder

This big storm cause to crawl under


Verse 5/6:


Abe knew how Civil War began,

The cause was slavery back then

After war, Ku Klux Klan emerged

And Jim Crow to allow rights purged


Verse 6/6:


GOPer states now reverse suffrage

Suppress votes that FOX encourage

Our hope now is POTUS Order

To avoid massive disorder


CHORUS (Time, Time, Time…)




(#19) Putin’s Expanding Tangled Web

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/31/2022):


Don’t think Putin & Trump aren’t still cajoling & talking,

And maybe Russian troops on Ukraine border is balking,

It’s as though former Soviet Union is now stalking,

Back in Moscow at Kremlin, Putin & Sergey chalking,




They have future visions of creeping Russian tentacles,

That kleptocratic oligarchs foresee as pentacles,

Small GNP and disgruntled masses are spectacle,

Because of their large nuclear military, we’re skeptical,




Most autocrats often align with others of their ilk,

Putin was nurturing ugly Trump party with his milk,

This is menacing potential partnership that will bilk,

World must be cautious of these spiders, and their web of silk.






(#20) Price of Trump & GOP INSURRECTION

(By JPL, aka GBF; 01/30/2022):


So now it is becoming clear on how it all began,

On Trumps’ & his GOP crony crooks’ coup attempt plan,

Recruit fraudulent GOP electors from the states,

And get VP Pence at Capitol to mimic Trump’s traits,




Vice President Pence then wisely chose to not accept the lie,

As MAGA rioters chant “hang Mike Pence” in halls nearby,

Trump’s coup attempt was precisely planned seditious event

Now soon comes Insurrectionists’ criminal indictment,




Those indicted must be expelled and denied public office,

POTUS should get military ready to be cautious,

Need Emergency EO to admin fed elections in states,

Because these GOPers the Constitution they violate.






(#22) rUSsiA’s DYNAMIC DUO

(By JPL, aka GBF; 02/02/2022):


Hickory Dickory & dock,

So damn quickly does moves the clock,

While Trump preparing his flock,

Without EO will be a crock,




GOPers are tightening the vice,

We all know they aren’t very nice,

And they’re good at being precise,

They prey and do it for Dear Christ,




Putin serves as Trump’s true partner

Forces staged on Ukraine’s border,

Will bring chaos and disorder,

Hoping the pawns will just scatter,




Dems trying to be so civil,

Tough to do against the evil,

Dealing with snakes and the weasel,

Don’t pretend they won’t be lethal,




Both of them have zero scruples,

Are devout Trumpism pupils,

Always seek Him for approvals,

Working as His true disciples,




Plan is new Soviet Union,

Two guys in sacred communion,

For greed and power, not human,

Exploit earth is their conclusion,




Two plan to work in unison,

Target those near revolution,

The resources is their solution,

No regard for the pollution,




Trump said Venezuela was ripe,

And in US backyard to swipe,

So for future this pair will snipe,

And next will be with all their might,




There is an umbilical cord,

Found in new East Euro accord,

Germans ponder, can they afford,

Must not forget Ukraine’s seaboard.






(#22) Stopping & Cropping Seditious GOP by Blue in Twenty-Two

(By JPL, aka GBF; 02/06/2022):


If Congress Democratic CaucUS & POTUS don’t come THROUGH,

Our US democratic republic will quickly unglue.

It’s the US Constitution that holds US TOGETHER,

And there’s no denying the fact that it’s a FRAGILE TETHER.






(By JPL, aka GBF; 02/04/2022):


We have little choice but to accept this our present time,

In years past there has always been prevalence of much crime,

USA mostly thought of nation of law & order,

Now greedy & powerful claim they’re protecting border,




Assault artillery gives much power to lower tier,

So now sinister wealthy do partner with them for fear,

Using that as they push people’s emotional buttons,

Expanding their wealth & estate is goal of these gluttons,




The wealthy male WASPs are leading insurrection & coup,

Along with Christian zealots, are racists making up crew,

Their hate runs deep, are misogynists & xenophobes too,

While violating laws, it is evil they pursue,




ChorUS: (As immigrants of past, …)



We are in a day when evil has a facade of good,

They’re all bunch of gas lighters claiming they’re misunderstood,

They have FOX and other propagandists telling their lies,

All this happening, as autocratic rule on the rise,




The Trump and GOPer’s ways are not anything Christ would condone,

And we are not a Christian republic and there’s no thrown,

We are immigrant diverse nation & are all equal,

We must prevent going backwards to civil war sequel,




We plead now for Congress & President to act fast,

For what GOPers are doing to US, we are aghast,

GOP state officials passed anti-voting rights laws,

Violating US Constitution oath, which was last straw,




ChorUS: (As immigrants if past, …)



Congress vote pass, or not, on state GOPer seditious acts,

And then time for POTUS & Military to tact,

What is needed is Emergency EO to react,

In response to clear & present democracy attack,




We do think POTUS admin of fed elections we need,

At least in GOPer Constitution breaking states, we plead,

Do this until our election voting rights are restored,

For common good of humanity & Earth we implore,




ChorUS: (As immigrants if past, …)





As immigrants of past we sailed to this our great land,

Through the ages, we came to understand where we stand,

We strive now for justice and equality for all,

Learning from our wrongs & rights of past, and we stand tall,


“A” Verse


We know we’re an experiment and don’t want to fail,

This will not occur if our justice system prevails,

Through this all the guilty high & low must go to jail,

In accordance with French gift, Madam Liberty scale,


“B” Verse


We now prepare the sails and cargo for next voyage,

Where it brings US forth as written here in this passage,

Will never be something that is completely certain,

But make it through now, there will be delay in curtain.


“C” Verse





(By JPL, aka GBF; 02/06/2022):

One thing for sure about this site

Is that it creates lot of fright

It also does keep US thinking

And leads US to excess drinking

Let’s not fret on things we can’t change

Some things not meant to rearrange

Money is ultimate power

Puts dummies on top of tower


La Fine

Re: Commencement of Leaky CRIMe Plant Citizens’ Sample & Test Program (CSTP)

ATTENTION Michigan EGLE (Environment, Great Lakes and Energy) Lansing Headquarters and Grand Rapids District Office: Materials Management Division (Waste Compliance Enforcement Section), Environmental Investigation Section, Remediation & Redevelopment Division and Water Resources Division,

Re: Commencement of Leaky CRIMe Plant Citizens’ Sample & Test Program (CSTP)

ANNOUNCEMENT: After over 20 years of State of Michigan ignoring the leaky CRIMe plant problem (Chemically Real Intensive Manufacturing establishments), we are now going to initiate the “Citizen Sample & Test Program (CSTP)”. And we are not asking local and state public officials (elected & appointed) for your permission, we are simply telling you we are proceeding and doing what you all should have been doing for the last half century since RCRA & HSWA passed in 1976 & 1984 respectively. The former Michigan DEQ, never hesitated to clamp down harshly on Ma & Pa gas stations and dry cleaners under the 1988 UST program (Underground Storage Tanks), forcing many of these small businesses with noncompliant USTs into bankruptcies. While at the same time, when it came to larger “lobbyist protected” OEM supply chain leaky CRIMe plants (e.g., electroplating plants, leather tanneries etc ), they were all given a FREE PASS by MDEQ falsely based on some cockamamie attorney interpreted concocted inapplicable RCRA hazardous waste exemption/exclusion [40 CFR Section 261.4(a)(1)] intended for POTWs (and not CRIMe plants), that MDEQ naively were led to believe gave these plants with leaky underground pipes and tanks carrying hazardous wastewater full rights to freely pollute the land and water with no subsequent investigations and consequences.


We will start this Citizen Sample & Test Program (CSTP) with Leaky CRIMe plant in vicinity of 1648 Monroe Ave NW, Grand Rapids, MI, 700’ east of Grand River, that the MI AG (Granholm) was first made aware of in March 2000 (and State notified repeatedly thereafter). Next to be sampled/tested will be the Leaky CRIMe plant in vicinity of 4260 Airlane Dr SE, Kentwood MI, on Plaster Creek at a site which once was a “greenfield space” which has since turned “brown”. What will be obvious from test results from samples collected down gradient of either of these two sites, will be the presence of toxic chemicals that make up the “chemical fingerprint” (which ain’t rocket science) of the CRIMe manufacturing processes conducted at these two facilities. Keep in mind, that there are hundreds (and perhaps thousands) of highly suspected leaky CRIMe plants like these scattered throughout Michigan yet to be sampled/tested, and across the US there are upwards of ten thousand or more of these highly suspected leaky CRIMe plants that have been ignored by regulators for the mere reason that the area where they are located is publicly served by central water. The latter should not be adequate reason to let these CRIMe plants continually and freely pollute the surrounding land and water. Now getting back to the Monroe plant, don’t be fooled by the nice fancy painted metal facade on this plant – this is a very old plant with antiquated below-grade old pipes, sumps and tanks used to convey, store and treat hazardous process wastewater. Prior to 2000, leakage from this plant (hexavalent chromium etc.) was evident in a well located on the west side of plant, coincidentally installed while a UST (gas) was being removed off the property. Underground highly contaminated aquifer flow from this location flows directly to the Grand River just 700 feet to the west through a highly porous granular geologic formation (virtually acting much like an open conduit), which happens to be the upper reach of the planned and imminent Grand River commercial/recreational Restoration Project that is being touted as a “full-body contact” recreational surface water linear park for wading, swimming, kayaking, etc. Those downstream from this project, including the public at large, and the three public waterworks (Grand Haven, Grand Rapids & Wyoming) with several drinking water intake structures near the mouth of the river out in Lake Michigan, better take heed to the pile of toxic chemicals coming their way when all the dams are removed in the Grand River Restoration Project, which will certainly be releasing many tons of toxic industrial chemicals that have accumulated for over a century on the river bottom behind these several dams. Michigan has never given the Leaky CRIMe plant much attention, because centralized public water is available, and detrimental effects of cancer caused by the toxic leakage (e.g., leakage into areas where children play, like basements, ditches, streams, contaminated ponds & in groundwater sprinkler irrigation systems) takes decades to occur and you all know full well it is difficult to impossible to legally trace this dreaded disease back to the exact source.


So in the near future, when the groundwater test results are available from the CSTP, we will first share those results “live” at a regularly scheduled County and City Commissioners’ meetings so they can be heard out loud by concerned citizens and be part of the record, with the purpose of making it less likely that a public official sworn to protect the public’s wellbeing and health & safety will be able to put this information in the “circular file” or “recycle bin” or bury it deep in the government archives. It is often said, “If you want to get something done, sometimes it’s best to take matters into your own hands” rather than relying on those who are elected or appointed and sworn to perform those functions.


For anyone, anything and anytime, there are always consequences for your actions and inactions. An example of the latter would be someone (infant, toddler or adult) dying from cancer caused by Leaky CRIMe plant pollution. The latter is, and was, well known, and could have, and should have, been prevented if lobbyists, consultants, attorneys, public officials (latter and big corps are all on big conveyor belt where they continually swap jobs) and regulators didn’t let and enable CRIMe plants to arbitrarily contort exemptions/exclusions to falsely allow them to freely pollute our environment. For all of the aforementioned Leaky CRIMe plant enablers, think of all your actions/inactions as analogous to the recent high rise building collapse in FL: On any given night when you go to sleep after local and state public officials have repeatedly failed to enact and/or enforce building structural safety regulations (and condo assn boards fail to act on bldg repair recommendations), you reach over for your “very old To Do List of the morally and ethically right things you should be doing” and in the process you knock over your glass of water that shatters as it hits the tile floor, after which the whole building suddenly collapses from under you. Because of your procrastination, deliberate or otherwise, the list never got done.


People have been bamboozled into thinking that the hazardous waste (HW) pollution problem in the US has been solved in the distant past by the laws previously mentioned, which resulted in the creation of 4000 EPA licensed HW TSDFs (Treatment, Storage & Disposal Facilities) that now properly receive, store, treat (and recycle) and dispose of all the HW generated at some forty to fifty thousand CRIMe plants operated throughout the US. The latter includes about 20,000 metal finishing/electroplating plants in the US. The off-site TSDFs that manufacturers ship their HW to (in solid and liquid form) must meet strict requirements on conveyance, storage and treatment of the HWW (hazardous wastewater) they receive from the CRIMe plants, yet the CRIMe plants themselves do not meet these strict requirements for the high volume of hazardous process wastewater they treat at their industrial sites. The EPA permitted and enforced requirements that the licensed TSDFs must meet for HWW received, include: (a) all conveyance and storage systems must have secondary containment with a leak detection system between the primary and secondary containment (i.e., must have a “tank in a tank”, and a “pipe in a pipe”); (b) the latter systems must have continuous automatic monitoring for tank/pipe liquid level or pressure with an automatic alarm and shutdown system to prevent primary or secondary containment overflow or spillage/leakage; (c) surface water and groundwater must be routinely sample and tested around the site and at the property line for purpose of contamination detection and early notification on whether any groundwater contamination has occurred so corrective action can be taken immediately, and adjoining property owners can be notified of the problem; and (d) must perform extensive facilities and site inspections and monitoring reports, subject to EPA regulatory review.


THE PROBLEM IS THAT THE TOTAL OF ALL THESE CRIMe PLANTS IN THE USA TREAT A LOT MORE HAZARDOUS WASTE (in gallons or tons) COLLECTIVELY THAN ALL THE EPA LICENSED TSDFs, YET THE CRIMe PLANTS ARE NOT MEETING ANY OF THE ABOVE REQUIREMENTS. How much more? We don’t know, but it could be a hundred thousand times more or greater. Additionally, the design and construction of the TSDF (performed and overseen by professional engineer), and the preparation of an operational plan thereof, is strictly reviewed for compliance to all the applicable EPA regulations. Whereas, in most cases across the US, there is no government entity that does the same for CRIMe plants when they are first constructed or modified/expanded (i.e., no regulatory review or requirements by the local, state or federal government relative to compliance with applicable hazardous waste RCRA or HSWA regulations). Some will say that the CRIMe plant must meet the CWA (Clean Water Act) requirements through the local POTW through their sewer CWA NPDES discharge permit for their discharge to the municipal sewer after first treating the HWW. But the problem with that, is that a Leaky CRIMe plant (say 10 to 15% leakage), more often than not, is not getting all the HWW generated from the manufacturing production process to the sewer because 10% or more of this process HWW is leaking to the soils and groundwater below the plant from these leaky buried tanks and pipes. Others will say that the CRIMe plant has to get a building permit from the local building inspector. But the problem with that is that the City building inspector only cares about how many parking spaces do you have, have you met handicap requirements and minimum requirements for fire safety, electrical and HVAC requirements, etc.  So as you can see, this is a major loophole, and please don’t think that all these CRIMe plants are doing good at self-regulating and they have just been getting better and better and more compliant over the years even though there is less and less CRIMe plant regulatory enforcement and inspections, because in fact, a lot of them do plant construction/modifications without using a licensed professional engineer, and instead use in-house engineers, who aren’t college educated in engineering, and only got the title of company engineer because they got promoted to that position after being a plating technician, electrician or a plumber. On the point of underground leakage (also overflow spillage) from CRIMe plants, the quantities of HWW leaked to the environment in total over the years can be very substantial. For example, if a moderate size plater produces 100,000 gallons per day (gpd) of HWW from its manufacturing process (which would not be unusual), and has even 5 % leakage, that’s 5,000 gpd of HWW being released to the soils and groundwater. Annually with 330 production days, that amounts to 1.65 million gallons per year. Let’s say that half the CRIMe plants in the US that aren’t compliant (due to lack of state & federal regulatory enforcement) with the RCRA/HSWA hazardous waste laws have a similar amount of HWW leakage to the environment. First of all, realize that these CRIMe plants and their attorneys claim, through a warped interpretation of the regulations, that they are exempt from hazardous waste RCRA/HSWA laws because of an exemption/exclusion in the law for domestic sewage, which was intended for POTWs only (and not CRIMe plant HW generators) so municipal wastewater plants could accept sewer discharges from these hazardous waste generating CRIMe plants after they have treated HWW on-site. Again, if half the CRIMe plants in the US are leaking a similar amount of HWW to the environment as given in the prior example of a moderate plater, that would amount to annual leakage of HWW to the environment of 33 billion gallons (1.65 million gal X 20,000 CRIMe plants). Keep in mind that this is for toxic chemicals (hexavalent chromium, PFAS/PFOS, etc.) that have health concentration standards that are in the parts per billion or parts per trillion range (i.e., just trace amounts can cause cancer, especially to most vulnerable population, such as pregnant women, unborn, infants and toddlers).


So, in summary, I have no doubt that there is a steady faucet flowing from leakage from CRIMe plants that has been occurring unnoticed for half century, and is insidiously and accumulatively polluting our land and water resources, including the degradation of our drinking water supply sources, such as in the Great Lakes Region. This is a BIG HUGE PROBLEM that has knowingly (by perpetrators, and local, state and federal governments) been going on for over a half century and is negligently being ignored. The reason this problem I have described is not being detected, is because these CRIMe plants are located in areas served by centralized public drinking water systems and nobody is sampling and testing the groundwater around these plants for contaminants emanating from the CRIMe plant because nobody is drinking that contaminated groundwater directly and NOBODY IS DROPPING DEAD (the health effects of carcinogens often takes decades to appear in the human body). Realize that the hydrological system is all interconnected, so all the polluted groundwater from the tens of thousands of leaky CRIMe plants is now (or soon will be) collectively flowing together through all the aquifers, ditches, creeks, streams and rivers, and is insidiously accumulating in the lakes or aquifers we use for our public drinking water resources. You may ask: who would ever pay for the sampling and testing around a CRIMe plant? Certainly, the CRIMe plant won’t, and likely the local or state government won’t because they don’t want to upset local or state employment or the economy, and the politicians who represent these jurisdictions don’t want to get involved because they know for the same reasons stated, it would hurt their reelection potential. And the other thing that keeps local, state and federal public elected officials from supporting a sample and test program for these suspected leaky CRIMe plants, is that don’t want to upset the automotive OEM “just in time” supply chain from parts suppliers. Additionally, the property owners around the leaky CRIMe plant are hesitant to sample and test because they don’t want their property values to go down. So who does that leave to support and help finance the CRIMe plant sample and test program? The only possibility is the chance that philanthropists and the general public (small donations) will (and have) contribute to a nonprofit organization dedicated to the promotion, management, administration, financing and implementing of such a program based on a priority system starting with those CRIMe plants that are suspected the most of having antiquated and poorly designed, constructed and maintained HWW conveyance, storage and treatment systems. In other words, if a CRIMe plant LACKS adequate environmental safeguards, leakage and pollution to the environment is occurring and those plants should be targeted in the Leaky CRIMe Plant Sample & Test Program.


If Michigan and other states cared enough about the public’s wellbeing and health & safety, they could end the Leaky CRIMe plant problem if they took action similar to state of California. After repeatedly noticing that the worse kind of HW violations in their state (Class I violations) were almost always associated with below-grade pipes and tanks carrying hazardous wastewater (HWW), CA decided to outlaw the existence of buried pipes and tanks for conveying, storing and treating HWW. It’s the obvious answer and the RIGHT ANSWER for ending Leaky CRIMe plants, and should be mandated in all the states. CA defines HW Class I violations as acts that are done Willfully, Intentionally, Knowingly and Negligently, and are often associated with CRIMe plants that are Chronic and Recalcitrant Violators and the violations they are committing represent a Significant Threat to human health or safety or environment due to volume of waste, toxicity of waste, and proximity of at risk population (e.g., pregnant women, infants, toddlers). And Class I violations enables the violator to benefit from noncompliance economically by either reducing costs or competitive advantage. So Michigan how do you get out of this Leaky CRIMe plant predicament? You adopt a program like they have in CA by: (a) first make it mandatory that these CRIMe plants not be allowed to operate unless all pipes and tanks carrying HWW are clearly above grade (not buried or below the plant floor or ground anywhere on site) with secondary containment and are readily visible for inspection at anytime, including mandatory hourly inspection reports be kept and available, and any evidence of leakage of pipes or tanks or overflowing/spillage from tanks must be reported immediately when observed; (b) in lieu of latter hourly inspections, CRIMe plant may install automated continuous monitoring devices with automated alarm and shutoff systems that activate shutoff when there is detection of possible or pending (high liquid levels in tanks, low pressure levels in pipes) leakage or tank overflow/spillage; (c) there be leak detection systems for pipes and tanks with secondary containment, such as a “tank in a tank” and a “pipe in a pipe”, so it is clearly evident when the primary pipe or tank has failed and is leaking; and (d) CRIMe plants have environmental monitoring systems surrounding the plants within their property lines, including for surface water as applicable (stormwater ponds, etc.) and most definitely, for groundwater, including groundwater monitoring wells, so early detection and notification of contamination of surface/ground water will be known, so public may be immediately advised that chemical contamination is migrating and needs to be stopped and contained.


Fortunately for YouREAPwhatYouSow.org  (Realty Environmental Action Proponents) and its parent organization, CommonGoodUnited.com (COMMONGOODUNITED INC) we have had plenty of support for our overall programs, and especially for the CSTP (Citizen’s Sample & Test Program), which has brought us to a point where we can now start bringing Realty to the public in the form of real test results so they can begin to learn how serious the Leaky CRIMe plant problem is, and how badly it has been swept under the manufacturing Lobbyist fulfilled rug.


Expect Voting Rights Plundering in GOP Controlled States to Result in Marshall Law Declaration by POTUS and U.S. Military Oversight of Federal Elections in 2022

UGLY.network (now transitioning to uglyGOP.com) was created in response to Donald J Trump entering national politics, which brought the already BAD & UGLY Republican Party (GOP) to levels of UGLINESS never imagined, which were prompted by the GOP’s fear and recognition that there has been a pronounced shift in US demographics that created a New Majority in the nation made up of what was previously the “minorities” consisting principally of “urbanites” made up of people of color, including African Americans, Latinos, Asians, Native Americans and various other ethnic or religious groups of varying ancestral origins and backgrounds. The post election GOP Autopsy Report delivered in 2013 after Mitt Romney’s defeat to Barrack Obama, warned the WASPy (White Anglo-Saxon Protestants, anti-Semites) Republicans that they needed to diversify and broaden their appeal in order to remain a dominant political force. But they declined this advice, and instead have clearly gone down a path now from BAD to WORSE, as the Trumpian GOP is now shifting to ever more racist, and now fascist tendencies as touted at their 2021 annual white supremacist annual CPAC meeting. The Autopsy Report also pointed out to the GOP hierarchy that they needed to broaden their appeal by being more inclusive and respectful of women, which they also ignored, and instead have continued down their misogynistic path of having old male WASPs in leadership roles. In so many words as spouted out by the main stream GOPers at CPAC, the direction of the Republican Party is now transitioning far away from their touted “Conservatism” views/values that favor free enterprise/private ownership and socially traditional ideas, to instead towards predominantly FAR-RIGHT AUTHORITARIAN, ultra nationalism DICTATORSHIP, combined with FORCIBLE SUPPRESSION of opposition, and generally STRONG REGIMENTATION of the broader society and economy as a whole.

Now, all the GOP controlled states are passing Voting Rights Plunder legislation so when the next federal elections occur in 2022 & 2024 (primaries beginning soon) they will be able to suppress and/or cancel the votes from the targeted demographics who have become the majority in the nation. The GOPers say it is their objective to have “quality voters”, which means WASP voters, who are all in favor of the GOP’s plan for the US to become an autocracy with the Republican Party in control, now being referred to as the GOP Advent of Autocracy. What they are doing in their Voting Rights Plunder is totally against the basis of the U.S. democratic republic, which is founded on the principle of representative government, that is of, by and for the people, with each US citizen entitled to having full and equal rights to vote for their government representatives. Through the course of US history, past generations have fought, died and killed to preserve our democracy, freedom and equal rights under the US Constitution, such as in WW2 when Fascism and Nazism was flourishing, which is being rekindled once again as led by GOP racists, white supremacists, misogynists, xenophobes, nationalists/isolationists, anti-LGBTQers and anti-Semites.

What is very worrisome right now, is that there are 23 GOP controlled states, classified as “GOP Trifectas” which means in each of them the state legislature (both house & senate chambers) and governorship is under GOP control. There are also 20 states that are classified as “GOP Triplexes” which means in those states, the governor, state attorney general, and the secretary of state are all of the GOP party. And 19 of these states have dual classification of both GOP Trifecta and GOP Triplex (AL, AR, FL, GA, ID, IN, MS, MO, MT, NE, OH, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, WV & WY). Those that are GOP Trifecta only, include AZ, IA, NH & ND. The word “only” needs to be deemphasized, because a GOP Trifecta state can (and they have) pass a lot of Voting Rights Plundering state laws, which in turn, are (and have been) immediately signed by their state GOP governor. The only state that is GOP Triplex only is Alaska (AK), which is also very significant, because as we all know, the Secretary of State in each state has tremendous power over the administration of elections, including local, state and federal elections. And that power of that GOP Secretary of State is greatly amplified when they are working side by side with the full support of the GOP governor and GOP attorney general of the same state.

The Voting Rights Plunder state laws that are being passed in these GOP controlled states are purposely making it especially troublesome and burdensome to exercise our right to vote, which is especially being strategically targeted towards the “minority turned majority” demographic group, consisting primarily of people of color (POC) and urbanites, which are the Democratic voters who voted in big numbers in 2020 giving the margin of victory that was needed for Biden & Harris (and other Democrats – e.g., GA senators) to win. The GOP and these GOP controlled states are ruthlessly in a very precise manner disenfranchising the voting rights of the “minority turned majority” (POC & urbanites) so they can control the outcome of the federal elections in 2022 and 2024.  They have already made it clear that they don’t intend to change their platform by broadening and diversifying their appeal to minorities and women, so they are taken the “dirty scoundrel” route of making it is difficult as possible for the Democratic opposition to vote. The Voting Rights Plundering laws in these states includes a lot of voting suppression/oppression tactics, like for example: having fewer polling places, having shorter or no early voting, having fewer or no ballot drop places, imposing unreasonable restrictions on who is allowed to vote my mail, imposing extensive requirements on requiring proof of voter ID and voter registration at the polling place or when registering to vote or as a requirement for vote by mail, making it more difficult on voter registration such as for college students who reside at campus locations, not allowing people to provide food or water to voters waiting in long voting lines often in extreme weather conditions for extremely long times, voter purging (including “voter caging”) whereby names are arbitrarily removed from the rolls or list of registered voters for invalid or insignificant reasons, etc.

Elected Democratic leaders in DC are trying to offset or overcome these Voting Rights Plunder laws that have been enacted in GOP controlled states, but so far have not been successful, and the outlook of achieving this looks rather grim. The effort to save the democracy and protect the right to vote so far has included H.R. 1, the US House For the People Act (passed in House without any GOP support) which is written to expand voting rights, change campaign finance laws to reduce the influence of money in politics, ban partisan gerrymandering, and create new ethics rules for federal officeholders. This Act has gotten nowhere in the Senate yet, because WV Democratic Senator Manchin opposes it, and even though there was a vote of 50 to 50 to allow debate on the bill, this was well shy of the 60 votes needed to overcome a GOP filibuster. Additionally, Senator Manchin also indicated that he would not vote to weaken or eliminate the filibuster; and therefore, the For the People Act to strengthen voting rights in the US is dead in the water. Democratic AZ Senator Sinema also opposes weakening or eliminating the filibuster. There is some talk that VP Harris might open up debate in the Senate on eliminating or modifying the filibuster on the basis that it is not a part of or protected in any way by the Constitution (constitutional argument), which really doesn’t have much promise of accomplishing anything, since this type of debate is likely more applicable to the US Supreme Court. Another voting rights act that may come before the Senate, which likely won’t fare much better than the For the People Act, is the John Lewis Voting Rights Act (H.R. 4), which is proposed legislation that would restore and strengthen parts of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, certain portions of which were struck down in 2013 SCOTUS court decision. Particularly, H.R. 4 would restore the Voting Rights Act of 1965’s requirement that certain [southern] states pre-clear certain changes to their state voting laws with the federal government (like for example, all these Voting Rights Plunder laws being passed recently in GOP controlled states). The chances of the John Lewis act getting passed really aren’t any better than chances of the For the People act getting passed or the filibuster being modified or eliminated. One thing you can be sure of is once the GOP regains control of the Senate, they most definitively will eliminate the filibuster so they can get on with all the GOP legislation they want and intend to pass.

So given that the strengthening of voting rights on a federal level has little chance of advancing in US Senate because of opposition by GOP Senators and Democratic Senators Machiavellian Manchin and Cinema Sinema, things look mighty grim for the Democrats in the coming 2022 and 2024 election. What makes it even worse is that the GOP made gains in House seats from the 2020 census results. Census added one seat each to FL, CO, MT, NC & OR, and TX gained two seats. Losing one seat each from the Census were CA, IL, MI, NY, OH, PA & WV. Four of the six states picking up seats from the Census voted for DJT in 2020, and five of the seven states losing seats from the Census voted for Biden in 2020. The Dems majority in the US House presently stands at 218-212, with five vacancies. To make matters worse, the Dems did not have any new gains in control of any state legislatures in 2020, and now the GOP stands to redraw the district maps for 187 districts (that’s “ultra-gerrymandering” district redrawing), while the Dems just have 87 districts to redraw. Not sure how you get a half of a seat, but the GOP gained 3.5 seats from redistricting alone.

First of all, it must be understood politicians are politicians, which is a self-serving breed in themselves. Politics, however, is necessary part of our democracy and will always be there, but what we must bank on is that we elect public officials that have at least some level of human decency and morals & ethics, which the GOP does not. So if the GOP is now effectively eroding our Voting Rights in multiple GOP controlled states, we have a serious problem. Without “one man equals one vote” because there is deliberate and intended suppressing and oppressing of votes of the demographic group the GOP considers to be “inferior voters” who don’t deserve to have equal opportunity at casting their votes for our government representatives, there will be A NEW CIVIL WAR 2.0 as instigated by the GOP NRC (New Republican Confederates). And now the GOP controlled states are passing state legislation that cancels our First Amendment Rights to Freedom of Speech and the right to publicly assembly and protest (e.g., such as protesting Voting Rights Plunder state legislation), such as what was just passed in Florida and signed by Governor Desantis that enacts new state laws which says law enforcement officials can arrest protesters and put them in jail immediately with no bail allowed, and may subject those who are arrested to 15 years in prison.

The Republic Party knows exactly what it is doing, and they know that the trend lines are going against them, and will only get worse as time goes on – i.e., that “minority turned majority” is only going to grow in size. So their answer is the GOP Advent of Autocracy, but first they have to get to a major victory in 2022 through the Voting Rights Plundering laws passed in the GOP controlled states. Regarding the GOP Trifecta and GOP Triplex states, it doesn’t take a genius to see what could happen in these GOP controlled states with or without these Voting Rights Plundering state laws:

Example one: TX (38 electoral votes) is turning bluer and bluer as years go by: President margin of victory in past elections: 15.8% R (2012), 9.00% R (2016) and 5.58% R (2020).

Example two: FL (29 electoral votes) once was blue, and has been slightly red lately: President margin of victory in past elections: 0.88% D (2012), 1.20% R (2016) and 3.36% R (2020).

Example three: OH (18 electoral votes) once was blue, and has been red lately: President margin of victory in past elections: 2.98% D (2012), 8.13% R (2016) and 8.03% R (2020).

Example four: IA (6 electoral votes) once was blue, and has been red lately: President margin of victory in past elections: 5.81% D (2012), 9.41% R (2016) and 8.20% R (2020).

Example five: GA (16 electoral votes) now blue, after trending away from red: President margin of victory in past elections: 7.82% R (2012), 5.13% R (2016) and 0.24% D (2020).

Example six: AZ (11 electoral votes) now blue, after trending away from red: President margin of victory in past elections: 9.03% R (2012), 3.55% R (2016) and 0.31% D (2020).

Example seven: NH (4 electoral votes) usually blue, but barely blue in 2016: President margin of victory in past elections: 5.58% D (2012), 0.37% D (2016) and 7.35% D (2020).

Biden beat DJT in electoral votes in 2020: 306-232 (adjustment after 2020 Census: 303-235)

NOTE: As you can see from this partial analysis, the Voting Rights Plundering laws in GOP controlled states could easily flip the win to GOP in those states narrowly won by Biden in 2020 (e.g., GA, AZ), and likewise, could make it ever more difficult to get a Dem win in states that could easily turn blue in 2022 & 2024 if GOP didn’t PLAY DIRTY (e.g., TX, FL).

So now in Florida, when it comes to federal elections in 2022 and 2024 (and the primaries that precede), you can expect to wait in long lines to vote, and if someone offers you water or food while you are waiting many hours, those good Samaritans will be subject to arrest, and if prior to these GOP rigged elections you protest, you will be thrown in jail, and could be sentenced to 15 years in prison. The Florida law also makes it within the law for others to run over protesters with their cars and trucks if they are blocking the road right of way. And also keep in mind, Florida has a “stand your ground” law, which allows a citizen to shoot and kill you if you are changing your tire on the side of the road on a rainy day wearing your rain coat with a hood, because that person is allowed to shoot and kill you if they feel threatened because you are wearing a hoodie and have a tire iron in your hand.

The DJT-GOP directed Strategy is crystal clear:
Henceforth, “by hook or by crook (BHBC)”, never again will GOP controlled states (with GOP Trifectas and/or Triplexes) be allowed to lose any GOP federal elections for Congress or President. The GOP is still working on this Hook or by Crook strategy, and has already accomplished most of what they intended in preparation for the 2022 election, including the passage of 22 Voting Rights Plundering laws in 14 GOP controlled states between January 1 and May 14, 2021, and more have been introduced or passed since. And for the GOP Triplex portion of the BHBC portion of the strategy, the GOP is making sure they have diehard BHBC GOP Secretaries of State in all the GOP states who will bend over backwards to force a GOP win by any means necessary, which means they don’t want another Secretary of State like GOP Brad Raffensperger of Georgia, who stood firm on principles/morals/ethics for the 2020 federal election results in his state, even though attempts were made to coerce him to reverse the results by President Donald Trump and SC Senator Lindsey Graham. In summary, the GOP BHBC Voting Rights Plundering Strategy is going as planned and is on schedule for the 2022 election to diminish voting rights of POC and urbanites in GOP controlled states by implementing the most effective voting suppression/oppression methods ever conceived in American politics.

So you can’t vote without major Voting Right Plundering being imposed on you (in those GOP controlled states), and you can’t protest the aforementioned because you will be thrown in jail without bail and may get 15 year prison sentence for doing so, if you aren’t first run over by vehicles operated by GOPers. SO WHAT DOES THAT LEAVE YOU?: CIVIL WAR 2.0! Do we want a Civil War 2.0? Hell no we don’t! But what’s our choice? People aren’t going to sit back and put up with this. People will fight/die/kill to maintain their right to vote and to preserve our democracy. So who can stop this from happening? The Republican Party sure as hell isn’t going to do anything to stop it, because they are the very ones promoting these major civil rights violations. So who needs to stop it are the public officials we elected to serve and protect US. Their priorities can’t just be their typical “politician self serving priority” of doing what is necessary to get reelected so they can continue to be on the gravy train conveyor belt of revolving GovtOfficials>Lobbyists>GovtProducts/ServicesProviders. They need to look past their own personal aspirations & wealth, and concentrate on SAVING AMERICA, & OUR DEMOCRACY, & OUR LIVES AND PREVENTING ANOTHER CIVIL WAR!

Do the Dems have the means and rights to do that? Hell yes they do! Our Constitution never intended for controlling political parties in individual states to have the right to manipulate federal elections to favor the dominant political party in their state, and states may have the right to administer their local and state elections, but they do NOT have the right to illegally administer the federal elections in their state in such a fashion that it arbitrarily thins out (oppressing/suppressing votes) the voting population to what they define as the “quality voters” who they believe are the voters (mostly WASPs) best qualified to vote for the most GOP suitable candidates (mostly older male WASPs) to represent the state’s dominant political party (GOP).

The Dem Party currently is in control in DC and can and must centrally take over the administering of the federal elections across the nation so all citizens have fair and equal rights to cast a vote for the federal public office candidates of their choosing with no outside oppressing or suppressing of their vote.

DEMAND that Biden stop GOPers from MANIPULATING elections in 2022 & 2024 by exercising his Emergency Executive power by instituting federal government administered elections for all federal elected positions on basis that Constitution forbids GOP controlled states from plundering voting rights of select/targeted (mostly POC, urbanites) demographics group. The other choice, is for the Biden Admin to WAIT UNTIL ALL HELL BREAKS OUT as US Citizens of a certain demographic group aren’t able to vote due to all the GOP suppression tactics, bogus voter ID tactics, or they get removed from the registration rolls for some arbitrary reason (e.g., ”caging” tactics etc.), or they aren’t allowed to register to vote like a college student on campus, etc. Okay, so Biden then patiently waits and observes as ALL HELL BREAKS OUT and FL Governor Desantis is arresting voting rights protesters, and then as the Commander in Chief, Biden declares federal emergency by POTUS Executive Order and declares Marshall Law and proceeds to have the US Military administer the federal elections for all the states for a period of time until proper federal voting rights acts are passed by the US Congress, and who know how long that will take, but in the meantime, none of the bogus elections in the GOP controlled states with their Voting Rights Plundering laws will be honored, and hence are null and void, and voting responsibilities of the states to administer federal elections will not be returned to them until it is done according to newly established federal voting rights legislation.

What Dems presently have:

  • POTUS Emergency Executive Power
  • Military under Commander in Chief Joe Biden
  • DNI over multiple domestic and international intelligency agencies
  • Congress House control

If Voting Rights Plundering occurs in GOP controlled states in 2022/2024, regardless of SCOTUS GOP bias, RED LINE will have been crossed and no transfer of federal offices for such elections will be valid or allowed to occur.

This is not a threat, but if the Dems don’t plan accordingly well in advance to conduct federally administered federal elections for 2022 and 2024 elections, and allow the GOP controlled states to manipulate the administering of the federal election process in their states, CIVIL WAR 2.0 will more than likely break out. Even though the GOP will be the reason and cause for this new civil war for a whole host of reasons, if the Dems sit back and let it happen without doing anything, such as discussed above, both the Dems and GOPers will have blood on their hands (GOPers for causing it, Dems for not preventing it).

Our leaders Biden, Harris, Pelosi and Schumer can’t be telling US the answer is that “We the People” have to bust our butts to overcome the massive illegal GOP Voting Rights Plundering going on with a massive voter turnout even greater than 2020. That’s a Bull Shit “It will all work out” Politician’s Answer and is NOT ACCEPTABLE! With all the GOP underhanded tactics (Voting Rights Plundering and making it illegal to publicly assemble and protest), it will take DRASTIC MEASURES like a Biden Emergency Executive Order to have federal work forces to administer federal elections exclusively, and have states (through their Secretary of State offices) conduct and administer local and state elections only (or at least until the US Congress fixes this problem). Implementing this idea of federally and centrally administering elections for federal positions only in not that complicated (centralization of other matters are already done, like Medicare, Social Security, IRS federal taxes, etc.), especially after having just done the federally administered COVID19 PANDEMIC RESPONSE AND VACCINATION PROGRAM, and it makes perfectly good logical sense to do it now and for the future to prevent this kind of political manipulation of the election process for federal positions to occur again.

PUBLIC OFFICIALS (elected/appointed) NEED TO PUT AN END TO 1/2 CENTURY LONG PROBLEM WITH LEAKY CRIMe PLANTS (Chemically Real Intensive Manufacturing establishments)

The problem with Leaky CRIMe plants (Chemically Real Intensive Manufacturing establishments) has been prevalent for a half century or more, in virtually all the states across the USA even though we have enacted laws that forbid this leakage of toxic chemicals caused by manufacturers that do not have proper environmental safeguards in place. It’s an insidious accumulative problem that is polluting our land and water that has been ignored, concealed, denied and has consistently fallen on blind eyes/deaf ears of elected and appointed public officials who cater more to greed and power (for others and themselves) more than they do to their sworn duty to protect the environment and well being and health & safety of the public. This should absolutely not be a partisan issue. Public officials exist to protect the public from harm/damage, and they do not exist to allow manufacturers to get away with illegally polluting the environment and public domain. The argument that “the pollution already exists in urbanized and industrialized areas, so why worry about it?” is a warped and grossly negligent argument that is full of holes (leaks). The POLLUTION faucet/leaks at these CRIMe plants, which has been flowing steadily for half century or more, needs to be shut off. This is not a made up story. It’s a REAL problem that is causing a steady accumulative decline in the quality of the nation’s public drinking water supply sources. It is especially a problem in the Midwest and Great Lakes Region where the largest and most precious bodies of fresh water exist in the world. The segment of the population that is the most vulnerable to the toxic cancer causing chemicals are pregnant women, infants and toddlers.

NOTICE and DISCLOSURE of this problem has been made before, including in:

  • 2000 to Jennifer Granholm, Michigan AG, and MDEQ;
  • 2017 to Obama Admin & US EPA & US AG;
  • 2018 to Michigan Governor Whitmer and MI EGLE & MI AG; and now again in

Now more than ever we need to advocate and adhere to “liberal democracy” principles

For those who get confused about upper case “D” versus lower case “d” for American “Democratic Party” versus American “democratic system” of government, this is not about Democratic Party, or Right (e.g., conservative) leaning versus Left (liberal) leaning American political parties (i.e., Republicans versus Democrats, which both have moderate or independent leaning supporters in the middle), but it is about lower case “liberal democracy”, which is the system of government which we operate under that emphasizes the separation of powers, consisting of an independent judiciary and a system of checks and balances between branches of government (i.e., executive, legislative and judicial: e.g., President/Congress/Court). A liberal democracy, like the USA, ideally follows the principle of “rule of law”, which exists to control and regulate our society in a limited and important manner (e.g., businesses, other entities, individuals) for a variety of activities, including our free market based economy (capitalism), election or appointment of public government officials and a variety of other matters, such as protecting environment and wellbeing and health & safety (security) of the public. Presently, the USA democracy is teetering for a variety of reasons (lopsided US Supreme Court, numerous state voter suppression laws being passed, etc.), and since 2016 the USA has been reclassified and downgraded to the category of a “flawed democracy”. Without a doubt, the USA is at a critical point in its relatively short history.

CRIMe plants cause decades- and century-long REAL insidious and steady contamination of natural water resources, such as freshwater, private and public groundwater (wells) and surface water (lakes) drinking water supply sources, including Lake Michigan and the Great Lakes system as a whole.  Thus another reason for calling them CRIME plants, is simply because what they have been, and are still doing at many locations under many laws REALLY constitutes multiple violations of local, state and federal laws as covered by local ordinances and state and federal statutes, of which there are many that deal with these type of crimes. What these leaky CRIME PLANTS are, and have been doing, is causing REAL negative impacts, not only to the environment, but also to the general welfare (property devaluations, etc.) and the health & safety of the public locally (e.g., Grand Rapids Metro*) and in the State (e.g., MI) and Region (e.g., Midwest/Great Lakes) – the latter highlighted here as the “POSTER” community, state and region where the CRIMe plant issue is prevalent. The criminals/perpetrators associated with the violations occurring at these leaky CRIMe plants are the OWNERS/OPERATORS of these plants, including those in their employ or contracted with this plants related to this misdeeds (esp. the licensed professionals who have sworn to the PUBLIC OATH – engineers, attorneys, etc.), and the elected and appointed public officials who have sworn to this same PUBLIC OATH of “protecting the general welfare and health & safety of the PUBLIC” as they are turning a blind eye and deaf ear to it all.

Citizens just have to accept these cold hard facts, and stop waiting around for the local, state and federal public officials and their agencies or the big powerful plaintiff attorneys to come to your rescue, because this JUST AIN’T GOING TO HAPPEN!! The plaintiff attorneys aren’t coming soon to take your case on a contingency basis (only paid if they win) because the potential damages that might be awarded in court just don’t add up to enough to satisfy their wallets because you live in a neighborhood that is served by pubic water so you haven’t been drinking enough of the CRIMe plant’s nasty chemicals over the years, or been poisoned enough by some other means like excessive air toxics through the air (air permit violations) or from contaminated groundwater oozing into your basement or into the soils, ditches, creeks, etc. where your children play. And then proving that you or your loved ones have been afflicted with the onset of cancer some ten years later is always hard to predict and prove. And since you live in a low to medium income neighborhood, any devaluation in your property values will only amount to a day’s worth of pocket change for the rich/fancy plaintiff attorney who doesn’t work cheap.

SO YOUR ONLY HOPE IS THIS: YOU AND YOUR NEIGHBORS get together, and get involved with “REAP” (youREAPwhatyousow.org) and PACATO.org (Principled American Citizens and Allies Together to Orchestrate) and get out there and sample and test around these CRIMe plants and bring that incriminating evidence,  (while at the same time publicizing the issue) that I am sure you will find (fingerprint chemicals associated with plant), to the public elected and appointed officials/agencies, and tell them you want to see that the violating CRIMe plant be held accountable and that the plant ceases polluting the environment and the public and that they initiate corrective action immediately, including environmental remediation and upgrading their plant with appropriate environmental safeguards, and to cease operations until they do so. And if duly elected and appointed public officials and their agencies respond as they have so many times in the past with a deaf ear and a blind eye and they don’t pursue enforcement (e.g., Year 2000, MI AG and Governor and his DEQ: see attachments in youREAPwhatyousow.org) then you have no other choice, other than going the next step higher to the state and federal court system and file legal action against these public officials for CLEAR, UNDENIABLE AND ILLEGAL “BREACH OF PUBLIC DUTY”. You simply have to recognize that you and “we as a whole”, have so much stacked against us; i.e., we have a political system that funds, caters and works to elect these public officials that is flush with high paying, and highly networked lobbyists, who are typically former public elected or appointed officials, who work 24/7 for the wealthy CRIMe plant owners and their manufacturing/trade associations, and OEMs, etc. – original equipment manufacturers – GM, Ford, etc.).  So until we can truly get good public representation (i.e., “a government of, by and for the people” – perhaps with a few less hundred thousand connected self-serving attorneys and multi-millionaires/billionaires interwoven into these positions), all we can do is “take these matters into our own hands” in a law abiding manner according to our legal rights as `just described.


*Home of Secretary DeVos, the Amagram, Amdroids (multi-level pyramid marketing), self-righteous CRC and POTUS “Its” Midwest Headquarters (POTUS “It” has been there repeatedly, and was there on election night 2016, when “It” won/stole the election, and is due there again any day following “Its” sidekick AG’s Barr’s announcement after a quick review of Mueller report that “It” was exonerated on Russian collusion  but not on obstruction of justice, although “It” said “It” was exonerated on both (LIE), which certainly Special Prosecutor Mueller fully intended that Congress would look into further).              


*Also home of many CRIMe plants that have been there polluting the area and the public for going on a century, including chromium electroplaters, leather tanneries, paper/pulp mills (Muskegon) and a heavy concentration of other metal and surface finishers, including a whole assortment of electroplating plants plating various heavy metals, such as copper, nickel, zinc, etc. Great place to walk through a field of white lilies on your way with the flock to your favorite Christian church; but not so great if you’re among the dandelions and don’t follow the ways of the flock and congregate among the non CRC, non Christians, agnostics or atheists.

CommonGoodUnited.org (=CGU), and its divisions (youREAPwhatyousow.org, PACATO.org, etc.) have not said much on its websites during the past year, but now that the Biden-Harris Democrat team has won, some things need to be said. The origins of CGU came from its first website, youREAPwhatyousow.org (=REAP), which was founded, some years after a Whistleblower (WB) disclosure was made to the Michigan AG against a corporation who was knowingly and illegally polluting the environment from two or more of its CRIMe plants (Chemically Real Intensive Manufacturing establishments) located in West Michigan. The Michigan AG at the time was Jennifer Granholm, who subsequently became a two-term Michigan Governor. Despite all the personal and professional risk and damage endured by the WB, AG Granholm ignored and did not act upon this disclosure. Environmental laws and regulations (RCRA 1976) requiring that these plants have certain safeguards have been in existence for nearly a half century, but have been ignored due to lack of enforcement and loose and false interpretation of these rules by the CRIMe plants and their attorneys, who have not been brought into check by the regulators who answer to the lax state and federal environmental directors, as appointed by politically-driven elected officials working on their next election campaign. The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and the hazardous waste (HW) regulations contained therein, govern how hazardous wastewater (HWW) is to be Treated, Stored and Disposed of (TSD) at these CRIMe plants. These HW rules are in effect for the regional EPA certified TSD facilities (TSDFs) that exist to take liquid and solid HW from industrial HW generators throughout the US. The standards that TSDFs must meet are very stringent, requiring doubled lined tanks and pipe (= secondary containment = tank inside of a tank, pipe inside of a pipe), continuous leak detection monitoring between secondary and primary tanks and pipes, continuous liquid level monitoring and pressure monitoring in tanks and pipes with automatic alarm systems and shutoffs that are triggered when critical liquid levels or pressures have been reached to prevent overflows/releases,  sampling and testing of monitor wells (and stormwater retention ponds) surrounding the site to give early detection if contaminants have been released from TSDF and are about to be spread to adjacent properties; plus extensive US EPA reporting requirements. What needs to be clearly recognized is that most of the regional TSD Facilities that take HW and HWW from thousands of industrial plants, DO NOT process as much HWW as many of these industrial CRIMe plants, who in a lot of cases, are leaking like sieves and are going unnoticed (unless they contaminate nearby domestic wells) because they are located in areas that have centralized municipal water systems, so nobody is monitoring them, and nobody knows the difference even though they are polluting, both near and afar, the surrounding soils, streams, lakes  and public water supply sources. Prime examples of CRIMe plants are metal finishers/electroplating facilities, leather tanneries, pulp/paper processing plants and stainless steel manufacturing. Toxic chemicals from these plants include hexavalent chromium and PFAS chemicals, which are very toxic at extremely low concentrations, especially to the most vulnerable population, like infants, toddlers and pregnant women. Hexavalent chromium is becoming more and more prevalent in water supply source intakes on the Great Lakes near urbanized and industrialized areas, which is becoming a major concern. The insidious water pollution that has been occurring to our water supply sources for a half a century or more due to unchecked pollution from these CRIMe plants can be compared to the insidious air pollution that is occurring to our atmosphere from fossil fuels which has brought about climate change. The contaminants from the CRIMe plants are slowly and gradually traveling through the soils, groundwater, ditches, streams and lakes and accumulating in our freshwater public water supply sources, and if left unheeded, it will continually degrade the quality of our drinking water.

Those CRIMe plants that have been loosely interpreting the RCRA HW regulations so they can freely pollute the environment have been falsely and illegally doing so by misinterpreting the domestic sewage exclusion as given in CFR 261.4(a)(1)(ii). This exclusion states that any mixture of domestic sewage and other wastes that passes through a sewer system to a publicly-owned treatment works (POTW) is excluded from RCRA HW rules. There is a fairly recent footnote now for this exclusion that states: “This exclusion applies only to the actual point source discharge [i.e., discharge to the POTW sewage collection system]. It does not exclude industrial wastewaters while they are being collected, stored or treated before discharge, nor does it exclude sludges that are generated by industrial wastewater treatment.” The main reasons for this exclusion, was so that POTWs could accept this industrial wastewater from industrial plants after it was treated and combined with the industry’s sanitary wastewater to meet their pretreatment standards in compliance with the CWA (Clean Water Act) through the POTW’s NPDES Permit (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System); and so the POTW did not have to meet special RCRA HW requirements. The CRIMe plants have been illegally using this RCRA domestic sewage exclusion, by falsely stating that they were mixing the sanitary and HWW together at the plant through the treatment process, which is never done, because putting urine and feces in your industrial wastewater treatment process is totally absurd, a big LIE, and doesn’t happen.

 As a result of this loose interpretation of the RCRA HW rules over the last half century, essentially any given CRIMe plant “LACKS” what is considered adequate environmental safeguards as previously mentioned (secondary containment, containment system leak detection monitoring, continuous and automatic HWW tank liquid level and pipe pressure monitoring with automatic shutoff to prevent spill overflows/pipe leaks, onsite monitoring of groundwater and stormwater for early detection of site contamination before it migrates on adjacent properties, special regulatory reporting, etc.).

So my point here is that it is about time we solved this problem with the leaky CRIMe plants, and make them comply with the strict RCRA HW rules? California has, but most, if not all, of the other states have not. This needs to be a federal enforcement initiative to get all the states to comply, and begin cracking down on leaky CRIMe plants. And if former MI AG/MI Governor Granholm was willing and able to ignore this disclosure made twenty years ago, do we really want her to be the Secretary of Energy?

PACATO.org (Principled American Citizens and Allies Together Orchestrating) began to form alliances that could collectively take initiatives to orchestrate sampling and testing around these CRIMe plants (because the government has not yet, and likely will never do it on their own) to obtain the needed data to go to government officials and demand that they do something to stop this illegal pollution; and if they didn’t act, then go to the courts and demand that these publicly elected and appointed officials be held accountable to live up to their oath of protecting the wellbeing and health & safety of the public. The latter is the premise for PEWHASOP.org (Protect Environment, Wellbeing, and Health And Safety Of Public). If the courts don’t hold the public officials accountable, of course, We the People should vote them out.

The other divisions of CGU besides those already mentioned are GoPP.global (People’s Party platform) and UGLY.network. As you can see, relying on politicians alone (i.e., our elected public officials), even though they are from the most viable (winnable) party that most closely represents your ideals in our US democracy, does not mean they will do what is right all the time, because oftentimes their main driver is the desire and MO (Modus Operandi) to get re-elected, and We the People, may oftentimes come up short in that contest.  And that is why we should always point out what is UGLY, so we have a gauge and a reference point, to call out those politicians when it comes election time on the GOOD, the BAD and the UGLY. UGLY.network was formed originally in 2019, incorporating the presidential primary leading up to the 2016 election and the Trump Presidency in 2017-18. Since that time, there has been a real bonanza for more Trumpian UGLY material yet to be incorporated. The Trump era was a prime time for defining UGLY. If a politician consistently does the opposite of Trump, that politician won’t be all that bad.

PACATO: Principled American Citizens & Allies Together Orchestrate

So why the name PACATO?

In general, “pacato”, which is an Italian word, means:

  • Subdued, quiet, calm, tranquil, peaceful, easy going, and placid; and some goes as far as saying it also means “timid, excessively modest, prudish, and goody goody [two shoes]”.
  • Pacato is “giving peace”; or is “at peace, and not disturbed by passions”; and is the opposite of “aggressive”, “explosive”, etc.

The word “orchestrate” means: “to carefully organize events and situations to achieve a desired result or outcome”.

What follows is a discussion of what is meant by “principles”, and “allies” and “orchestrate”.

 All of these words that make up PACATO are important, and certainly since the verb “orchestrate” describes “action”, it alone says a lot.  So, the obvious question is: Orchestrate what? The answer just by itself given here is quite simple when written or spoken: PACATO’s main function is to orchestrate situations, events and circumstances to arrive at and produce a desired outcome or result that is beneficial to the common good of humanity and the planet. That is it “in a nutshell” so to speak.

At the end of this blog there is further information on the background and basis for the PACATO.org name, motto and logo.

PACATO Allies:

Our allies are our friends, and for the most part, are like-minded individuals or organizations. We say “for the most part” here, because obviously there are always differences of opinions, etc., between different individuals and organizations. How we handle those differences is essential at the core of achieving success and can never be overlooked or ignored, but does not need to be an insurmountable obstacle to achieving the prime endeavor of a PACATO goal or objective.

  1. Our allies are almost everywhere, and can be found:
  2. in our local communities and regions; in our states or provinces;
  3. in our nation, continent, and hemisphere;
  4. and in all the occupied lands, nations, continents and hemispheres (East and West) of the world.

PACATO’s Slogan and Motto:

Since the current leader of the free/democratic world’s slogan is “Putting America First”, there is no reason why our slogan cannot be Putting (not spelled putin) American Citizens and Allies Together to Orchestrate; but the initial inclination has been to use the prior slogan given (Principled American Citizens & Allies Together Orchestrate) because of the key word contained therein: “Principled”. PACATO would love to hear your thoughts on this, so please feel free to give suggestions on the slogan or anything else related to the organization and website/blog.

PACATO Principles:

So now, back to the word “principled”. At this time and age in history, the words “principle” and “character” have more meaning and significance than ever before in modern history.

In the simplest terms, PACATO’s basic principles are similar to principles that might be taught in a youth “Character School” (they actually exist) or other elementary or secondary school that may have a particular curriculum or topic in a course concentrating on human character attributes and associated principles, such as:

  1. Principle Number 1: The Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would want them to do unto you”.
  2. Principle Number 2: “Be respectful of your fellow man, whoever that man or woman may be”.
  3. Etc.

Inception, Conception and Founding of PACATO:

PACATO (Principled American Citizens & Allies Together Orchestrate) was organized and founded by Giacomo B Fischiatore, an environmental engineer, activist, U.S. Midwesterner and a whistleblower from the early 2000’s. The latter fact is mentioned because he also recently organized and founded REAP (Real Environmental Action Proponents) under the webpage/blog www.youREAPwhatyousow.org. Without saying too much about REAP and its associated web site, suffice it to say that the primary purpose of REAP and www.youREAPwhatyousow.org is to bring to light the prevalence in the U.S. of under-regulated, under-controlled, and negligent leaky CRIM plants (Chemically  Real Intensive Manufacturing establishments) that are operating throughout the nation in a manner that is insidiously degrading the quality of our public water supply sources with carcinogenic toxic chemicals, especially for those public water supplies in the entire Great Lakes region – do not hesitate to appropriately call them for what they are (“CRIMe” plants), if that in fact is how they have operated over the past several  decades; which was and is at our peril and detriment, primarily motivated by the mentality of minimizing “bottom line” costs to maximize profits. The latter REAP approach just described herein was a blunt and direct pronouncement of the negligence and breach of duty committed by corporate and public officials and their representatives to act in a manner that protects the general welfare and health & safety of the public – quite sadly and pathetically, this gross negligence has been ongoing for multiple decades, approaching a half a century. Yes, believe me when I say, “there are still “Love Canal” type (historical event) toxic disasters still going on (thousands and thousands of them), and there “ain’t no love in them”, only personal and financial misfortune for the affected victims who have been stricken with cancer and have fallen into ill health and financial ruin as their property values plummet and their savings accounts got drained due to all the medical bills. So if you go to www.youREAPwhatyousow.org, you will see right away, that the approach used by REAP and the blog is clearly not one that is “sugar coating” this pronouncement, nor heaping praise on the neglectful CRIM plant perpetrators and their protectors and enablers; nor was it soft and gentle on the local, state and federal public officials and agencies from all branches of government (executive, legislative and judicial) who seem to be more protective of corporate financial health/profits and their re-election, than they are concerned about the welfare, health & safety of the citizens they serve. So you might say that REAP and www.youREAPwhatyousow.org has been the “stepping stone” or stepping off/stepping forward point that led to the development of PACATO and www.PACATO.org as presented herein.

By comparison, PACATO is characterized by a “kinder and gentler” approach. And along those same lines, and said by the same USA leader, PACATO is looking for those ”thousand points of light”, as the late U.S. President, George H Bush once said. In fact, we are looking for a lot more than a thousand points of light; we want to find a billion or more points of light throughout the world to work on the mission, vision and goals & objectives of PACATO. In this day when there is so much cynicism (justifiably so), PACATO wants to offer the billions of citizens worldwide an opportunity to participate by first letting PACATO know, so then we in turn can let the leaders of the world (local, state, national, international, etc.) know how citizens and humans of the world feel about how contemporary society and its industrial/corporate and governmental leaders are behaving/misbehaving and managing/mismanaging societal affairs and formulate ideas that PACATO jointly believes needs to be addressed and implemented to do less things negative and more things positive for the overall “common good of humanity and the planet”.

The hope of PACATO.org is that hundreds and hundreds of PACATO work groups will form locally and across the state, nation and world, consisting of all walks of life (humans of all types/diversity: multiple races, religions/nonreligious, income levels, education levels, ages, gender, sexual orientation, etc.) to formulate ideas on what is good and bad about contemporary society, and what is needed for the common good of humanity and the earth to sustain human and animal/plant life and to improve the quality of life for all living things. We cannot just continue rely on the 0.1% or 1% to decide on what is best for humanity and the planet. Not that there are not a lot of good wealthy people in the world, but the power of wealth and money is so concentrated and overpowering/overwhelming that it pervades almost every facet of society governance in a lobbyist/special interest fashion that profoundly affects the lives (positive & negative) of billions and billions of humans, including basic sustenance items, such as the abundance/adequate supply of clean and safe air, food, water, clothing, housing, medications, medical care, etc. All of the latter just mentioned, for the most part, should clearly come under the category of “basic human needs and rights”. Unfortunately, just because someone has a lot of associated power and influence because of their wealth (the 0.1 to 1.0%), does not necessarily mean that have superior intelligence or judgment or empathy as it relates to doing what is best for humanity and the one and only planet that we have, that we call Earth/home. PACATO.org recognizes that there are enormous and complicated challenges associated with the capitalistic and democratic framework adopted in some form by many free societies in the world, but regardless, we strongly favor the democratic/free/open form of government for modern day civilization.  PACATO is committed to work within the boundaries of the latter economic/governmental framework, although our quest will always be to search for better ways that this foundation can be reinforced and modified to better suit the common good of humanity and the planet. PACATO is a peaceful and law abiding organization, and our means and methods of advocating and making our positions known will always be done is an intelligent, empathetic and peaceful manner.

PACATO intends to give the voiceless and the poor/impoverished/hungry/ill an avenue or outlet to get their concerns and feelings known to the world, and to allow them to amplify the seriousness of the conditions that persists for many humans throughout the world caused by a variety of deficiencies and factors, such as food and water shortages, lack of education opportunities, lack of medications and medical care, lack of gainful employment, unfair labor practices, low/inadequate wages, lack of adequate housing, inadequate sanitary conditions for sewage and solid waste disposal, inadequate or nonexistent public safety/security/police work forces, no insect or vermin control, unhealthy air quality, and many more basic living and quality of life deficiencies for individuals and their families.

Certainly there are many other existing organizations with similar missions than PACATO, although most of the other organizations may be more focused on one particular issue for those communities/societies in need, like providing “safe drinking water” or “sanitary facilities” or “food for the undernourished/hungry/starving”.  PACATO’s mission and purpose is broader, and comes at a time when the USA seems to be weakening it alliances with many nations in the free world. Of course, it is not just in the USA, but this trend of isolationism and nationalism is found in many nations throughout the world. PACATO’s goal and purpose is to counteract this trend by bringing together many citizens throughout the world who strongly advocate for working in concert with our democratic allies. We want to see the bonds with our allies growing stronger and not weaker; and we certainly do not want these bonds with our good allies to sever or be jeopardized. Besides our critical national allies, PACATO advocates and believes it is essential that we constantly work and strive for stronger bonds with ALL OUR ALLIES, starting from our local communities and working outward to local regions, states or provinces, national regions, bordering nations, continent, global hemisphere, and worldwide. 

Quite simply, as PACATO.org members, volunteers, group organizers and leaders, we are all working together (orchestrating) related to given events or circumstances in our societies to achieve a desired outcome or result. It is like a musical/instrumental “orchestra”, which is a universally understood word/term, whereby the conductor, along with instrumental section leaders (e.g., for string section, horn section, etc.), and each individual orchestra member, conducts the large orchestra in unison to perform a masterful and beautiful production of a symphonic composition (perhaps by Bach, Mozart, etc.). The latter is done in synchrony, and is achieved synergistically and harmonically with a superb array of musical sounds that brings joyful and gratifying feelings of delight and pleasure to all of those in the orchestra and those fortunate to be in attendance. Hopefully, though the efforts of all individuals and groups involved with PACATO.org, we will find and convince those political conductors who hold a high office in the governance of the people, that want to achieve results and outcomes that will effectively contribute to the betterment of the “common good of humanity and the planet”.  Metaphorically, there are a lot of individuals and organizations that make up the orchestra (you and PACATO included), and there are a lot of communities and societies in attendance hoping that the performance will gratify them or simply fulfill their needs for the many deficiencies they have in day to day living on this planet. Those political/governmental officials and leaders of our civilization and society need to grasp and fulfill their duties to enact, implement and enforce policies that will be beneficial and protective of the common good of humanity and the planet (animals, plants, etc.).  These political conductors need to guide themselves when serving mankind and our planet keeping in mind basic needs and rights of the citizens of the world (see next section):

Basic Needs and Rights of the Citizens of the World:

  • Right to healthy food and nourishment.
  • Right to safe drinking water.
  • Right to safe and healthy sanitation facilities (for sewage, solid waste disposal, etc.).
  • Right to an education.
  • Right to housing.
  • Right to medications and medical care.
  • Right to clean and safe breathable air.
  • Right to public safety and security.
  • Judicial rights related to due process under the law, such as a fair and impartial trial.
  • Civil rights related to anti-discrimination and other civil rights violations.
  • Rights to living in a sustainable and viable environment in concert with all earthly species.
  • Etc., etc., etc….

The Primary Mission of PACATO is to:

Let politicians know that we do not want to be isolationists or pure nationalists who have no empathy and have little and no regard about what is going on with humanity and the environment in various parts of the local community, state/province, nation, continent, hemisphere, or the world.

PACATO and its supporters advocate against isolationism and are proponents for inclusivity and diversity, and advocate for reducing barriers to both, such as encouraging our communities to be receptive of a wide array of citizens with varying backgrounds, origins, religions, customs, etc.

PACATO’s Vision is to have billions of members who collectively advocate for policies and methods of governance that works for the betterment of the common good of humanity and the planet.

The intended primary activities and functions of PACATO will generally be educational, scientific, testing for public safety (e.g., sampling and testing related to public health & safety, etc.), and other related activities as qualified for a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization under U.S. IRS Section 501(c)(3).

The logo is made up of the strength inherent in the triangular configuration, which has a lot of subtle inherent messages related to integration/triangulation and coordination of individuals, groups and allies on various endeavors in fulfillment of PACATO’s mission, vision, goals and objectives. As you can see, there are many allies on the three legs of the triangle, and given at the bottom two corners of the triangle are the abbreviations “CG” representing the “common good of humanity and the planet”. On the top of the triangle is “P” for “Principles”, but could also represent “People” or simply “PACATO”. The “P” is located above a circle that represents the planet, which is being watched over and guarded by these people with principles, and inside the circle is a representation of “humanity” or “humankind”.  Inside the triangle, is a sheet of music, with the upbeat notes and progressive (small to large) spelling of “PACATO”, that starts out very softly (pp) and then builds up to just regular soft (p) at the end, with moderately soft (mp) in between. And notice that the final “O” in the spelling of PACATO on the sheet music is the circular symbol of the earth again, which typically has a cross on the top, and a human figure inside who is obviously conducting towards the beginning of the word “PACATO” and towards the beginning of the sheet music or the “Treble Clef” to the far left.
