Last Night Lower Bucks CFPA Quarterly Potluck Supper – Ward Wilson spoke about the US Nuclear Weapons arsenal

Ward Wilson spoke about the arsenal of nuclear weapons that the U.S. keeps on high alert and how much it costs to maintain them.   He discussed H.R. 3974 The Smarter Approach to Nuclear Expenditures (SANE) and our efforts to get Congressman Fitzpatrick to cosponsor this bill.

Wilson is a prize-winning scholar who has spoken widely, including at: the House of Commons in Great Britain, Princeton University, Stanford University, the United Nations, the Naval War College, the University of Chicago, Georgetown University, the Norwegian Defense Studies Institute, Los Alamos, the Institute for Security Studies in South Africa, the International Committee of the Red Cross, Aberystwyth University in Wales, Center for Strategic and International Studies, the Stimson Center, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy, as well as others.
 
Given the extent to which we rely on nuclear weapons to preserve the peace, these new findings raise troubling questions.
 
“Wilson . . . is well on his way to deconstructing the most fundamental beliefs
about nuclear weapons.”
– Stephen Schwartz, editor, Nonproliferation Review

Rally for the Unemployed December 8 – Success and Drama at the Same time!

Robin wrote a tremendous summary of the event yesterday, along with an invitation to our next two activities, so I am copying it here..

 

Thank you for your support in our pro-jobs letter campaign.  We were able to reach our goal
of 1000 letters ahead of our target date because of your enthusiasm and dedication to getting
America back on track.  
Yesterday between 25 and 30 constituents of Congressman Fitzpatrick met at his
office to continue to remind him that job creation is the issue that matters most in Bucks
County and that the American Jobs Act would mean jobs in Pennsylvania during this
unemployment crisis.  Also, that families all over the district are still left waiting to find out if 
they will be stranded without Unemployment Insurance Benefits as the extension deadline of
December 31 rapidly approaches.  The deadline to extend the Payroll Tax holiday, an
idea traditionally supported by Republicans, is also December 31 and yet there is no word 
on whether that will be allowed to continue to put money in working families’ pockets and
into the struggling economy.  
We gathered yesterday to deliver our 1000th pro-jobs letter and to demand long overdue 
leadership from the Congressman on job creation, extending Unemployment Insurance benefits 
and the Payroll Tax Holiday.
Once in the office, nobody from the staff would emerge from the back rooms to listen
to us.  We were left to state our case to the receptionist, who worked on an unrelated
matter while people tried to talk to her about the issues of putting Bucks County back
to work, families keeping their homes and being able to plan for the holiday season and 
staving off another recession.  We asked again to see someone – anyone – from the staff
who would stop typing long enough to listen to us but were told that nobody would
be called to see us.  We waited in the office until closing time and then waited in the
hall near the elevators hoping that a staff member would have to listen to us on their
way out of the building.  We were able to buttonhole District Director, Rob Mitchell, for
a few minutes in the elevator.  He seemed confused about our concern that the Congressman
is only interested in hearing from supporters and doesn’t seem willing to consider the opinions of
people who don’t support his obsession with the deficit in the face of a jobs crisis, which
could be improved by implementing the American Jobs Act.  It seems to escape the 
Congressman that if America were working again, the deficit would automatically reduce,
thanks to the taxes those working Americans would pay. 
We’ll keep you posted on the next campaign after the holidays.  In the meantime, don’t forget
the following social events in December:
BuxMont Coalition for Peace Action meet up and holiday celebration at Maninno’s in Morrisville
Monday, December 12, 7:00pm
We’ll gather informally at Maninno’s in Morrisville.  There is no charge.  Everyone will be
responsible for buying their own food.  We’ll relax and discuss the successful past year and the 
year ahead.  And you can learn more about the BuxMont Coalition for Peace Action!
Bucks County Move On / Penn Action Holiday Potluck
Monday, December 19, 7:00pm
Joan and Bob have generously offered to host a potluck holiday party at their home in
Morrisville.  If you would like to attend, contact me to RSVP and to get the address.  
Please bring an entree, appetizer or dessert to share.  It will be a fun way to wrap up a 
successful year of action and community building. 
Thanks for your hard work and dedication to the cause of economic justice and recovery.
Robin
