Jay’s email:Jay Sweeney [firstname.lastname@example.org]
And,Jay Sweeney hates no one.
Here is an announcement from Jay Sweeney(Chair of the Green Party of Pa.):
Calling on those who wish to live in harmony with the Earth and protect the planet from assault, abuse and devastation!
Please join us on Earth Day, April 22, 2013, as we call on the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection to fulfill its mission to “protect Pennsylvania’s air, land and water from pollution and to provide for the health and safety of its citizens through a cleaner environment” and to “work as partners with individuals, organizations, governments and businesses to prevent pollution and restore our natural resources.”
Join us as we gather at DEP’s regional offices in Harrisburg, Norristown, Meadeville, Pittsburgh, Wilkes-Barre and Williamsport to demand:
• The resignation of DEP Secretary Michael Krancer for failure to fulfill the DEP mission
• No more permits for gas wells, compressor stations, pipelines, water withdrawals and other infrastructure related to natural gas, coal or oil extraction
• No more toxic secrets — full disclosure of water test results and other studies done by the DEP
• Justice for those harmed by the oil and gas industry
• The reopening of the DEP Office of Energy and Technology Deployment to develop solar, wind and other renewable energy technologies
Monsanto continues to be regarded as a person while acting like a monster. Please follow this link to take action and resist!
STOP the unbridled assault upon our communities and their environments:
Let common sense prevail!

A bloated ego,
and vile to boot…
you’re so NOT astute!
Actually, I have been posting about , and boycotting (when possible), Chinese products since 2006.
Where my stuff comes from is important. The closer, the better. We try hard to buy local, organic, sustainable, and fair trade.
We are not perfect at it. But over time our negative impact on the Earth has lessened while our dollars have stayed closer to home. It is an ongoing process of personal growth and deepening commitment. Understanding that executives don’t give a shit beyond the bottom line – their jobs, mortgage, family, and toys.
Since the 1990’s I have been taking an informal survey of persons wearing American flagged apparel. Also, when in clothing stores I will look at the labels. Ninety eight percent of the time the item is made elsewhere.
How about this sentiment on your infant’s onesie. I guess if you disagree with our inherent militarism you ought to be shot. That is the American Way to some. They love to “defend” freedoms they don’t believe in. As long as it involves shooting. They see life as Win-Lose.
Please understand, I have no animus toward the Chinese people or culture. I have much regard for them. One might argue that a boycott would hurt the people. If this is so, they will turn and put added pressure on their government to do the right things.
Also, I have no animus for gun owners. However I do abhor the the use of threat to dissuade others from thinking differently. Isn’t that what we should be defending – the freedom of thought.
Russia and China have vetoed a key UN resolution on Syria calling for the resignation of President Bashar al-Assad” following the massacre of more than 200 people by security forces in the city of Homs. – Reuters
Russian and Chinese support for this regime runs deep. What threatens one brutal government, threatens them all.
Assuredly, the protection of these two authoritarian states will embolden the miscreant – Bashar al-Assad. As we sit here, he resumes his slaughter of defenseless civilians.
I am not helpless. I can let the idiots know I am not buying their stuff:

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________Check Check out: BOYCOTT RUSSIA AND CHINA TILL THEY RESPECT HUMAN RIGHTS FOR ALL COUNTRIES on Facebook_________________________________________________________________________________________
Please help stop the carnage in Syria by supporting the U.N. resolution to ouster Bashar al-Assad.
When you protect barbarians you become barbarians.
I pledge to stop buying Russian and Chinese imports until your countries consistently take the side of humanity.
